about

A homesick Pierrot feels nostalgia for Italy. The mood has changed now, and we hear the darkness lifting from Pierrot.

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

lyrics

Lieblich klagend - ein krystallnes Seufzen Sweetly plaintive--acrystal sighing
Aus Italiens alter Pantomime, From an old Italian pantomime,
Klingts herüber: wie Pierrot so holzern, Tinkles over: how Pierrot's become so
So modern sentimental geworden Wooden, so modern sentimental.

Und es tönt durch seines Herzens Wüste, And it chimes through his heart's desert,
Tönt gedämpft durch alle Sinne wieder, Chimes subdued through his senses again,
Lieblich klagend - ein krystallnes Seufzen Sweetly plaintive--acrystal sighing
Aus Italiens alter Pantomime. From an old Italian pantomime.

Da vergißt Pierrot die Trauermienen! So Pierrot forgets the dream faces!
Durch den bleichen Feuerschein des Mondes, By the moon's faint firelight,
Durch des Lichtmeers Fluten - schweift die Sehnsucht By the light sea's flood--longing strays
Kühn hinauf, empor zum Heimathimmel Brave upwards, up to the home sky
Lieblich klagend - ein krystallnes Seufzen! Sweetly plaintive--a crystal sighing.
