about

Pierrot preparing for his mischief – deciding what make-up to wear. He chooses a moonbeam to paint his face. Perhaps this is a pivotal point, sealing his fate for the remainder of his journey.

Conductor Jordan Randall Smith conducts Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire. Smith leads Ars Nova Dallas at the 2009 Dallas Festival of Modern Music.

lyrics

Mit einem phantastischen Lichtstrahl With one phantastical light beam
Erleuchtet der Mond die krystallnen Flacons The moon lights the crystal flacons
Auf dem schwarzen, hochheiligen Waschtisch On the black, high holy washstand
Des schweigenden Dandys von Bergamo. Of the silent dandy from Bergamo

In tönender, bronzener Schale In the resonant bronze basin
Lacht hell die Fontaine, metallischen Klangs. The fountain laughs light, metal clangs
Mit einem phantastischen Lichtstrahl With one phantastical light beam
Erleuchtet der Mond die krystallnen Flacons. The moon lights the crystal flacons

Pierrot mit dem wächsernen Antlitz Pierrot of the waxen countenance
Steht sinnend und denkt: wie er heute sich schminkt? Stands musing and thinks: how shall he make-up today?
Fort schiebt er das Rot und das Orients Grün Shoves aside the rouge and the Orient green
Und bemalt sein Gesicht in erhabenem Stil And paints his face--sublime style
Mit einem phantastischen Mondstrahl. With one phantastical moonbeam.
