About the Composer
\nearlydaysoftheinternet.anessaymadethe rounds recounting rnisrernembered history from the test papeI"sofgrad.e-school students. "Handel"wrote one young respondent, "was halfGennaI\halfItalian.andhalfEnglish.He was very large." Despite the dubious math, it wasaprettyfairassessmentofthecomposer's brilliant career. Unfortunate reference to his girth notwithstanding. it also acrurately depicts his presence in England's musical life.
Born i n Halle t o a PI"(lYinciai Saxon family, Handel woold grow up to become the canniest and most cosmopolitan of composers.BythetimehediscoveredEng1and in 1710, he had already held positions as a local church organist and theater musiciaI\ and had extensively toured Italy (at the invitation of a Medici), engaging with opera's most CUITent practices and practitioners. It was a formidable background for a composer about to encounter a growing taste for Italian opera among London's nobility.
Having savored success with Rinaldo (l71n his first opera written expressly for English audiences. Handel grew less content with his recent court position and looked to extend his London presence. (His employer, in effect. soon followed: Through imperial politics. Elector Georg of Hanover became King George I of England) But it was not merely the lure of fame; Handel saw the need to keep constant tabs on fickle English audiences.
A veteran of Hamburg's commercial Theater am Gansemarkt. Handel became a master of creating his own opportunities. and within 15 years he would have a hand in launching three opera companies in London By the 1730s. however, English audiences had forsaken Italian opera in favor of more linguistically digestible works. Once agall\ the nimble Handel changed direction, and English-language oratorios - such as Ismel in Egyp" (1739) and Messiah (1742) - would ensure his fame long after his early operas had fallen out of fashion
About the Work
Besides being one of Handel's more musically substantial stage works. Radamisto stands as a prime example of a pragmatic composer taking matters of production into his own hands. His first new opera in five years - and the first serious rival to his early successwith Rinaldo - thepiecewas Handel'scontribution for the new Royal Academy of Music. a subscription-basedoperacompany founded in 1719 by members of the London aristocracy. Radamisto saw its initial premiere in the spring of 1720 at King's Theatre. Haymarket. the prime venue for Italian opera in London at that time.
The opera's libretto. attributed to Nicola Francesco Haym. was an adaptation of Domenico Lalh·s Aorentine play L'amOUl" timnico, itself an adaptation of Georges de Scudery's Parisian tragicomedy L'amOUl" tyI"OllIliJUE', w h i c h w a s l o o s e l y b a s e d o n T a c i t u s ' s A nnals o f I m p e r i a l Rome . Traditionally, an opera's dedication was a privilege of the librettist. but given the text's dubious lineage, Handel reserved that right for himself. Whether to soothe any residual resentment wer his delinquency in Hanover - or out of sincere admiration for his one-time patron and current Sovereign - Handel dedicated Radamisto to George l acknowledging the kings encouragement "not so much as it is the Judgment of a Great Monan:h, as of one of a most refined Taste in theArt."
That Handel later chose to revise Radamisto so heavily that same year hardly reflects on its initial reception - the original production ran for a respectable 10 performances - but rather indicates the opportunities that presented themselves for the Academy's second season. Given that the original showed such a marked advance in musical structure and dramatic conception wer the usual operatic fare - often cobbled from several soorces, giving singers dear preference over composers - it bears mentioning that Handel would rework SO much of his material when more desirable singers became available.
Handel had been charged by the Academy to recruit the best singers available on the continent, and went on to secure commitments not only from castrato Francesco Bernardi (the famous "Senesino: who went on to premiere many of Handel's operas,includingthetitlerolesinOrlandoand
GiuIio Cesrm'~ but also soprano Margherita Durastanti and bass Giuseppe Maria Boschi The revised Radamisto that premiered in De. He became Artistic Directorof The English Concert. one of t he UK's finest period orchestras. in 2007.
Plans for the 2012-13 season ard beyond includes extensive tcuring and recording commitments with The English Concert and returns to the Chicago Symphony, Metropolitan Opera (Oemenza di Tita. Giullo Cesare), Canadian Opera Company, Liceu Barcelona and Houston Grand Opera. He has recently conducted opera productions for Metropolitan Opera (Rodelirv;la~ C h i c a g o L y r i c (Rin:IIdo~ a n d Bordeaux Opera (Aldrta) as well as many pro~ with The English Concert featuring soloists such as ian Bostridge, Andreas Scholl and Vesselina Kasarava.

finally sign off on his First Symphony, and even then it was only pr(lYisionally, since he would revise it further prior to its publication the following year. He was 43 years old and hadbeens~with thepieceonandoff forl4 years.
The symphony's "purpose' is essentially articulated in its outer movements; against these. the second and third stand as a two- part intermezzo. throwing the weighty proceedings that SIlITOund them into higher relief.Thefourmovements proceed according to a key arrangement of ascending thirds (remembering that A-flat is the enharmonic equivalent of G-sharp): the first movement in c minor, the second in E Major, the third in A-flat Major, and the finale in c minor again. In this regard we find that Brahms was not following any model he coold have found in Beethoven's symphonies,. which for the most part still operated according to the harmonic relationships of the Qassical era. which tended to set movements in the work's over-riding tonic key or at the degree of a fourth or fifth away. In contrast. Brahms here explores an architecture based on thirds
- relationships that increasingly interested composers as the 19th century progressed. an evolution in harmonic practice that would shortly lead to radical new stances about the nature of tonality itself.
"My symphony is long and not particularly lovable: wrote Brahms to his fellow composer Carl Reinecke when this piecewasunveiledHewasrightabout itbeing long. atleastwhen compared toother"typical' symphonies of his era. He was probably also right about it not being particularly lovable. Eventhewarmthofthesecondmovementand the geniality of the third are inteITl.lJ)ted by passagesofanxiety,andtheoutermovements are designed to impress rather than to charm. Brahms's First is a big. 1:mly symphony, certainlywhencompared tohis next two. It is probably no more lovable than Michelangelo's The Last Judgment. Shakespeare'sKing Leru-, orGoethe'sFmlst.

According to Sl;wic folk legends. Midsummer Night has seen quite some canying-on The pre-Otristian Ukrainians celebrated it as a fertility festival that if it sua:eeded in satisfying the gad Kupala. would assttre a good harvest a few months later. When the Quistian church arrived it tried to eradicate pagan festivals of this sort but often subswned them into Christian events. in this case. the Feast of the Nativity of St John (Ivan) the Baptist. which feU about then in the church calendar. Even the name of the new consolidated celebration. Ivana Kupala, reflects this hybrid origin. The occasion was generally jayws but it had an ominous underbelly. On that night (July 5- 6, a c c o r d i n g t o t h e n e w R u s s i a n calendar~ water nymphs tried to lUre the unwary to their deaths in lakes and rivers and all manner of frightening supernatural beings cavorted about the forests posing danger to anyone who might encoonter them Much of this activity centered an the so-called Bald Mountain. where all sorts of demons. witches. and sorcerers gathered in orgiastic f~. with their leader. the satanic Chemobog. often taking the form of a blackgoat.
On October a. 1860, the 21-year-old Modest MlJS50rgSky wrote to his mentor, the composer Mily 8aJ.altirev:
I have n>ceived an extremely interesting commission. which I must prepare for next summer. It is this: a whole act to take place on Bald Mountain (from Mengden's drama The Witch~ a witches' Sabbath separate episodes of sorcerers. a solellUl man::h for all in this nastiness a finale- theglorificationoftheSabbath in which Mengden introduces the commander of the whole festival on Bald Mountain. The libretto is very goc:xi I already have some material for it: it mayturnouttobeaverygoodthing.
(Baron Mengden remains obscure. and his play The Witch has disappeared entirely.) Nothing came of this project until same years later.In1866.Mussorgskywroteto8aIakirev. "rvebeguntosketchthewitches- amstuck atthedevils- theprocessionofSatandoesn't satisfy me yet.' But this time Mussorgsky perseveral. and on July 17, 186'7, hewrote to his friend Nikolai Rimsky- Korsakav:
On the 23rd of June. on the Eve of St. John's Day. I finished, with the help of God, St. Johns Night an.B::r.Jd Mountain - a tone picture with the foUawing program: (1) assembly of the witches. their chatter and hubbub; (2) cort~e of Satan; (3) unholy glorification of Satan; and (4) witches' Sabbath. I wrote the score just like that without any preliminary rough draft - I began on the 10th day of June. and by the 23rd there was joy and triumph" ['The dates Mussorgsky uses refer to the Russian calendar·1
He then went on to acknowledge his indebtedness to certain passages of Rimsky- Korsakl.'N's scores. That must have brrught
Rimsky-Korsakov considerable delight. since he was only 23 years old. five years younger thanMussorgsky.
For all his enthusiasm. Mussorgsky never tried much to get the piece played. He kepttinkeringwithitcreatingfirstarevision with chorus in 1872 and then another for use asanintennezzoinhisoperaSorochintsJRuI. It was not heard until 1886, five years after the composer's death. when it was given in a new orchestral revision (without chorus) prepared. by Rimsky-Korsakov, who claimed to have worked not only from the known Mussorgsky versions but also from now-lost materials that (he said) related to a very early manifestation of Mussorgsky's conception. an othelWise unknown version for piano and orchestra.
Although Rimsky-Korsakov's well- intentioned posthumous revisions of several of Mussorgsky's works have come under criticism. particularly for 'civilizing"' the native grit (Rimsky might have said coarseness) of Mussorgsky's style, his is the version of Night on Bald Mountain that has been most routinely presented over the years. and which is employed in this perfonnance. Another reali23tiol\ by the conductor l..mpold Stokowski. was also much heard in its day as a part of the soundtrack for the 1940 Walt Disney movie Fantnsia.

In 1940, fearing the intense anti-Semitism of Europe and needing to keep an American presence to maintain his cifuenship. he accepted a professorship at the University of California. Berkeley. After retiring from Berkeley in 1952. he moved to Agate Beach. a breathtaking spot on the Central Oregon coast where he lived in considerable seclusion and collected mushrooms. agates. andsuchawardsastheGoldMedalinMusicof the American Academy of Arts and Sciences and the Henry Hadley Medal of the National Association for American Composers and Conductors.
ltwas perhaps a blessing that for all his cosmopolitan experience, Bloch developed as a composer principally oo.tside the mainstream of 2Oth-century Modernism. He developed a personal voice that does not bear allegiance to any particular school of composition or mimic any of the mainstream masters. although he was aware of - and drew inspiration from - the developments that were occurring outside his sphere. For whatever reason. Bloch's compositions on Jewish themes - including Schehrno, MeditationMbm.ique,BaalShem.andSacred Service - are his most frequently heard compositions, SO much SO that many music lovers assume that references to Jewish traditional music pervade his entire oeuvre. Thisidentitywasfurtherenforcedby thelogo the composer attached to all his published works: the six-pointed Star of David next to his initials. E.B.ln fact. Bloch's overtly Jewish piecesaretheexceptionsinhisoeuvre,andhis
catalogue would be better characterized as a showcase of adistinctive brand of Modernism. Doubtless his iOOividualism contributed to his own S\lCa?SS as a composition teacher. nourishiI18 the talents of such diverse students as George Antheil Roger Sessions, Douglas Moon', Randall Thompson. Theodore Chanler. Quincy Porter. and Leon Kirchner. amongmanyothers.
Schebno dates from the moment when Bloch was giving up on a European career and beginning to look across the ocean to America His daughter. the lutenist Suzanne Bloch. reported that the piece was sketched slowly. inspired by the dark and pessimistic passages in the Book of Ecclesiastes: 'rhave seen all the works that are done under the sun. and behokl. all is vanity and vexation of spirit. ,. V anityof vanities. all is vanity.'
She rerorted that an encounter with the Russian cellist Alexander Barjansky was key to the project. leading him to exclaim. "Why. insteadofahumanvoice.limitedbyatextand language. should not my Ecclesiastes utilize the soaring. unfettered voice of the cello?" Many years after completing the piece. Bloch wrote 'I had no descriptive intention. 1was saturated by the Biblical text andconscirus of the woes of mankind to which 1have always been acutely sensitive. It was much later that 1had the idea of psychoanalyzing my work.' At that point he drafted a lengthy written program largely based on Biblical quotations, stressing that his literary description was an afterthought to what had been conceived in purely musical fonT\. In it he wrote:
One may imagine that the voice of the cello is the voice of King Solomon Ithe name is the English equivalent of the Hebrew SchelomoJ. The complexvoiceof the orchestra is the voice of his age. the world. his experience. There are times when t he orchestra seems to reflect his thoughts, just as the cello voices his words....The rhapsody says. 'I have tastedallofthis...andthistooisvanity."
