*In this song, we hear the longing of a love-struck Pierrot as he pines for Columbine. One of the more light, playful songs in Schoenberg’s work. Perhaps it is this unrequited love that sends Pierrot on his downward spiral.

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

Die dürre Dirne The withered whore
Mit langem Halse With stringy neck
Wird seine letzte Will be his last
Geliebte sein. Beloved.

In seinem Hirne In his brains
Steckt wie ein Nagel Stuck like a nail
Die dürre Dirne The withered whore
Mit langem Halse. With stringy neck.

Schlank wie die Pinie, Slim, like the stonepine
Am Hals ein Zöpfchen - On her neck a small tuft--
Wollüstig wird sie Lustfully will she
Den Schelm umhalsen, Circle the rogue's neck,
Die dürre Dirne! The withered whore;


from Ars Nova Dallas Plays Pierrot, track released January 23, 2010
