Pierrot Lunaire
by Brian Cohen

Pierrot Lunaire ( 2007)is a folio of 21 etchings from the dark, caustic, and poignant 1912 song cycle Pierrot Lunaire by Arnold Schoenberg. The etchings are printed twice on each page — in intaglio (etched lines print dark) and relief (surface holds ink and lines are light), a visual analogy to the sudden (and startling) reversals of emotional tone from tenderness to despair in the music. The poem is printed in its original French, in the German of Schoenberg’s song cycle, and in English translation. The folio is housed in a clamshell box constructed of sheet aluminum, and contains a CD of a July 2003 performance of the piece at the Yellow Barn Music Festival for which the artist created the images.  $2100.
