Program Notes This evening’s concert is a joint effort by Emory instrumental music students, faculty, staff, and guest performers. This mixture of live and virtual projects was conceived, recorded, and produced with inspiring contributions by Emory University Symphony Orchestra (EUSO) and Emory Wind Ensemble (EWE) students, who have enthusiastically embraced these diverse celebrations of ensemble performance. As we look ahead to future performances, we also reflect upon the artistic and academic goals achieved in a constantly shifting and challenging environment. Enjoy the performance.
Text and Translation “Au fond du temple saint” from The Pearl Fishers Zurga C’était le soir! Dans l’air par la brise attiédi, Les brahmines au front inondé de lumière, Appelaient lentement la foule à la prière!
It was in the evening! In the air cooled by a breeze, The brahmanes with faces flooded with light, Slowly called the crowd to prayer!
Nadir Au fond du temple saint paré de fleurs et d’or, Une femme apparaît!
At the back of the holy temple, decorated with flowers and gold, A woman appears!
Zurga Une femme apparaît!
A woman appears!
Nadir Je crois la voir encore!
I can still see her!
Zurga Je crois la voir encore!
I can still see her!
Nadir La foule prosternée La regarde, étonnée, Et murmure tout bas : Voyez, c’est la déesse Qui dans l’ombre se dresse, Et vers nous tend les bras!
The prostrate crowd looks at her amazed and murmurs under its breath: look, this is the goddess looming up in the shadow and holding out her arms to us. 5
Zurga Son voile se soulève! Ô vision! ô rêve! La foule est à genoux!
Her veil lifts slightly. What a vision! What a dream! The crowd is kneeling.
Both Oui, c’est elle! C’est la déesse Plus charmante et plus belle! Oui, c’est elle! C’est la déesse Qui descend parmi nous! Son voile se soulève Et la foule est à genoux!
Yes, it is she! It is the goddess, more charming and more beautiful. Yes, it is she! It is the goddess who has come down among us. Her veil has parted and the crowd is kneeling.
Nadir Mais à travers la foule Elle s’ouvre un passage!
But through the crowd she makes her way.
Zurga Son long voile déjà Nous cache son visage!
Already her long veil hides her face from us.
Nadir Mon regard, hélas! La cherche en vain!
My eyes, alas! Seek her in vain!
Zurga Elle fuit!
Nadir Elle fuit! Mais dans mon âme soudain Quelle étrange ardeur s’allume!
She flees! But what is this strange flame which is suddenly kindled in my soul!
Zurga Quel feu nouveau me consume!
What unknown fire is destroying me?
Nadir Ta main repousse ma main!
Your hand pushes mine away!
Zurga Ta main repousse ma main!
Your hand pushes mine away!
Nadir De nos cœurs l’amour s’empare, Et nous change en ennemis!
Love takes our hearts by storm and turns us into enemies!
Zurga Non, que rien ne nous sépare!
No, let nothing part us! 6
Nadir Non, rien!
Zurga Que rien ne nous sépare.
Let nothing part us!
Nadir Non, rien!
Zurga Jurons de rester amis!
Let us swear to remain friends!
Nadir Jurons de rester amis!
Let us swear to remain friends!
Zurga Jurons de rester amis!
Let us swear to remain friends!
Both Oh oui, jurons de rester amis! Oui, c’est elle! C’est la déesse! En ce jour qui vient nous unir, Et fidèle à ma promesse, Comme un frère je veux te chérir! C’est elle, c’est la déesse Qui vient en ce jour nous unir! Oui, partageons le même sort, Soyons unis jusqu’à la mort!
Oh yes, let us swear to remain friends! Yes, it is she, the goddess, who comes to unite us this day. And, faithful to my promise, I wish to cherish you like a brother! It is she, the goddess, who comes to unite us this day! Yes, let us share the same fate, let us be united until death!
