about

The tortured Pierrot cannot escape a desperate longing, perhaps for Columbine, perhaps for the pale washer woman – or maybe he is longing for something ntangible. In his lusty, darkened state, we see the end of Pierrot’s creativity and playfulness.

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

lyrics

Wie ein blasser Tropfen Bluts Like a pallid drop of blood
Färbt die Lippen einer Kranken Colors a sick man's lips
Also ruht auf diesen Tönen So reposes in these tones
Ein vernichtungssüchtger Reiz. A charm seeking annihilation.

Wilder Lust Accorde stören Wild air's accords disorder
Der Verzweiflung eisgen Traum Despair's glacial dream-
Wie ein blasser Tropfen Bluts Like a pallid drop of blood
Färbt die Lippen einer Kranken Colors a sick man's lips

Heiß und jauchzend, süß und schmachtend, Hot and jocund, sweet and tasty
Melancholisch düstrer Walzer, Melancholic dusty waltzes,
Kommst mir nimmer aus den Sinnen! Never come into my senses!
Haftest mir an den Gedanken, Hasten me on my conception
Wie ein blasser Tropfen Bluts! Like a pallid drop of blood.
