Pierrot is totally lost. Paranoid and afraid, this nightmarish scene depicts the terror of his despair.

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

Finstre, schwarze Riesenfalte Obscure, black giant moths
Töteten der Sonne Glanz. Killed the sun's splendour.
Ein geschlossnes Zauberbuch, A closed book of spells,
Ruht der Horizont - verschwiegen. The horizon settles--hushed

Aus dem Qualm verlorner Tiefen From the mists of lost depths
Steigt ein Duft, Erinnrung mordend! Wafts a scent--remembrance murdered!
Finstre, schwarze Reisenfalter Obscure, black giant moths
Töteten der Sonne Glanz. Killed the sun's splendour.

Und vom Himmel erdenwärts And from the sky earthwards
Senken sich mit schweren Schwingen Sinking on heavy wings
Unsichtbar die Ungetume Unseeable the monsters (glide)
Auf die Menschenherzen nieder... Down into the human . . .
Finstre, schwarze Riesenfalter. Obscure, black giant moths.
