death speaks soprano and three instruments

words and music by david lang after texts from Schubert songs 2012


soprano – also plays concert bass drum violin – also sings electric guitar piano

the electric guitar sounds an octave lower than written. the violinist sings in the last movement – his or her part may be sung in the octave written, or an octave higher all voices and instruments are amplified. it is also imagined by the composer that distortion, reverb, sound processing, lighting and staging may be useful in the performance of this work. death speaks was co-commissioned by the Carnegie Hall Corporation and Stanford Lively Arts, Stanford University. death speaks was premiered by Shara Worden, Owen Pallett, Bryce Dessner, and Nico Muhly at Stanford University, Palo Alto California, on January 25, 2012. the commission of this work was made possible with public funds from the New York State Council on the Arts, a state agency. the duration is approximately 26 minutes.


death speaks - note death speaks was commissioned by Carnegie Hall and Stanford Lively Arts, specifically to go on a program with my piece the little match girl passion. The opportunity came without many other parameters, so there were a lot of questions I had to answer. Would the new piece be for an existing ensemble or some group I would just assemble for these performances only? Would it relate to the little match girl, musically or emotionally, or would it start from its own place? Something that has always interested me about the little match girl story is that the place where we are left emotionally at the end is so far away from where the match girl is. We are all weeping at the end and yet she is happily transfigured, in the welcoming arms of her grandmother in heaven. The original story switches starkly back and forth at the end, between her state and ours, perhaps in order to show us just how far away from redemption we are; it is Andersen’s way of making us feel left behind. This reminded me of certain other stark comparisons between the living and the dead. I remembered the structure of Schubert’s beautiful song Death and the Maiden, in which the text is divided in half; the first half of the song is in the voice of the young girl, begging Death to pass her by, and the second half of the song is Death’s calming answer. This seemed to be the same division as in the Andersen story – the fear of the living opposed against the restfulness of death. What makes the Schubert interesting is that Death is personified. It isn’t a state of being or a place or a metaphor, but a person, a character in a drama who can tell us in our own language what to expect in the World to Come. Schubert has a lot of songs with texts like these – I wondered if I assembled all of the instances of Death speaking directly to us then maybe a fuller portrait of his character might emerge. Most of these texts are melodramatic, hyper-romantic and over-emotional; one of the knocks on Schubert is that he often saved his best music for the worst poetry. Nevertheless, I felt that taking these overwrought comments by Death at face value just might lead me someplace worth going. I went alphabetically in the German through every single Schubert song text (thank you, internet!) and compiled every instance of when the dead sent a message to the living. Some of these are obvious and some are more speculative – Death is a named character in The Erlking, the brook at the end of Die Schone Mullerin speaks in Death’s name when it talks the miller into killing himself, the hurdy gurdy player at the end of Die Winterreise has long been interpreted as a stand-in for Death. All told, I have used excerpts from 32 songs, translating them very roughly and trimming them, in the same way that I adjusted the Bach texts in the little match girl passion. The question then arose of what musicians should play and sing this new piece. Art songs have been moving out of classical music in the last many years - indie rock seems to be the place where Schubert’s sensibilities now lie, a better match for direct story telling and intimate emotionality. I started thinking that many of the most interesting musicians in that scene made the same journey themselves, beginning as classical musicians and drifting over to indie rock when they bumped up against the limits of where classical music was most comfortable. What would it be like to put together an ensemble of successful indie composer / performers and invite them back into classical music, the world from which they sprang? I asked rock musicians Bryce Dessner, Owen Pallett and Shara Worden to join me, and we added Nico Muhly, who although not someone who left classical music he is certainly known and welcome in many musical environments. All of these musicians are composers, all of them can write all the music they need themselves, and it has been a tremendous honor for me to ask them to spend some of their musicality on my music.


death speaks – words by david lang, after texts from Schubert songs

1. you will return you will return to dust you will turn return to dust turn to the sun like me, turn to the sun turn to the light turn to the light if there’s an eye still open grieving sweet sleep close it for me turn your heart, your poor heart it will only find rest when it has stopped beating turn to peace turn to peace this is the only road that leads you home enter I am your pale companion I mirror your pain I was your shadow all those long nights, all those days long past listen to me this message is for you where I am now, all sorrow is gone where I am now, all lovers are together where I am now in my arms only will you find rest gentle rest

2. I hear you I hear you I hear you call I pity you I am your friend I am not cruel give me your hand you will sleep so softly in my arms when love breaks free from sorrow a new star shines


a new star shines three roses, half red, half white they will never wither the angels they shed their wings and fall rest well rest well close your eyes you will rest with me until the river drains into the sea I’ll make a bed for you the softest pillow come, rest everyone will sing for you for you I will protect you from the hunter, from the forest from the flowers, from your dreams from the wicked girl, from her shadow I will keep your eyes covered I will protect you good night, good night

3. mist is rising mist is rising moon is full and rising sky above us it is so full I greet you, sister soul rise up, like an eagle rise up, to where the light is rise up, to where the light is from I am your rest, I am your peace I am what you long for, and what makes the longing go away I am full of joy for you, and I am full of grief come in and close the door behind you I will drive your sadnesses away my eyes fill with your light fill them fill them sweetest child


come with me I will play with you I will show you the flowers and the shore my mother’s golden robe my daughters and their evening dance they know a song to sing while you are sleeping I love you I love all of you I love your face I love your form please don’t make me make you follow me come and see tears of love become strands of pearls when the angel comes

4. pain changes pain changes every shape once you are truly lonely you will never be alone feel my hand I feel you touch my cold hand I will take you from her to your new cold land I have chosen you my only love those others they search for you but where they search they will never find you after the leaves fall, spring returns after love is parted, it returns all you have to do is come with me and wait one day she will be lowered in the earth beside you my hand will guide her home to the place where love is and no pain when that door opens you will be healed dearest man, dearest woman


dearest boy, dearest girl dearest mother, dearest father dearest son, dearest daughter you will never leave me you listen you are silent you feel me leaning towards you nothing escapes me not the warrior not the hunter everything awaits the way it changes when life falls away that is the meaning of the swan and its song the night can’t last forever nor will this sleep beyond this sleep is light forever light until that light can shine until you see it shining sleep sweetly here in the cool, dark night

5. I am walking I am walking in the sunlight I see the moon, at my feet I see the sun, at my feet I walk in joy I am kissed by angels your heart child of man your heart can’t know what joy I feel sister soul, come to rest pure notes of love echo around you a lily, a rose they wait for you while you sleep only you can hear me only you can see me only you can hear the music it never stops


death speaks 1. you will return
