Seriously, it is t he greatest piece ever written for violin and piano: About the Saint-Saenssonata she said:NIt's a fabulous piece but it's like jumping through burning hoops at the end of an evening recital: Ms.Mutter has been profoundly committedto contemporary music her entire career and she has a particularly close connection to the music of Witold Lutoslawski.This year, which marks the lOOth anniversary of the Polish master's birtl\ Ms. Mutter hasgivenLutoslawski'ssoloviolinworks- ChainIIandPartita- prideofplacein her programs.As for the Mozart sonata that opens the program. it may be taken as a symbolic affirmation that Mozart is. quite simply, the alpha and the omega t he ultimate point of reference to which all musicians and listeners will always return.
andPiano,K.379 (1781) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart BornJanuary27,1756inSalzburg,
Austria DiedDecember $,1791 in Vienna
SNAPSHOTS OF HISTORY...IN 1781: • Sir William Herschel discoYel"S the planet Uran.JS •Los Anseles isloo..nded by 44 Spanish settlers • Battle of the Chesapeake ' Imfl"lill"Uel Kant publishes his Critique 0{
• Fried"ich Sc.hiUer writes his play Die ROutxIr (The Robbers)
Some of t he earliest Mozart works to be printed were violin sonatas or, as t hey were t hen called piano sonatas with violin accompaniment. Proficient amateur musicians - and there were many of these in Europe at the time - loved to play such compositions in t heir homes to entertain their guests or for their own pleasure. Publishers in Paris, London. andAmsterdarn rushed to print the child Mozart's earliest essays in the genre. When Mozart returned to Paris as a 22-year-old young adult in search of a job, he understandably tried to
exploit this still-thriving market, now with mature works showing his genius in full bloom. He published a set of six new sonatas t hat were misleadingly designated NOp. I" (for the childhood essays had by then been forgotten). And in 1781, when Mozart moved from his native Salzburg to Vienna he once again published a set of six violin sonatas, in an effort to establish himself in the imperial capital. (The publisher called these sonatas NOp. 2:) This time, he was much more successful
The present work, No.5 in the Op. 2 set, was composed on April 7, 1781, according to a letter written by Mozart to his father the following day:
Today (for I amwritingat 11 o'clock at night) we had a concert, where three of my compositions were performed- nev-.rones.ofcourse:a rondo for a concerto for Brunettl a sonata with violin accompaniment for myself, which I composed last night between 11 and 12 (but in order to be able to finish it I only wrote out the accompaniment and
retained my own part in my head); and then a rondo for Ceccarelli. which we had to repeat.
Mozart's partners in this concert were violinist Antonio Brunetti, concertmaster of the Salzburg court orchestra, and the castrato singer Francesco Ceccarelli. The sonata performed that evening is the one known tooay as t he Sonata in GMajor. K 379. The violin part Mozart had written out for Brunetti has been preserved. but it differs substantially from the final verslon. Mozart must have revised the sonata before publication, so what we are going to hear tonight took even him more thanan hour to complete.
This sonata opens and closes in G Major, but its only fast movement, which mustberegardedasitscentralstatement isingminor.ItiswellknownthatMozart wrote some of his most impassioned music in g minor {two symphonies, a piano quartet a string quintet Pamina's ~Ach, ich fiihl's~ from The Magic Flute}. The present movement is no exception: the music's dramatic intensity is further enhanced by its brevity, which makes it sound like a single outburst of violent emotions.
The stormy g-minor "Allegro~ is surrounded by music of great calm and profound lyTicism. In the opening "Adagio." a lengthy slow introduction that is almost a movement in itself, the piano's arpeggios accompany a long cantabile melody played in turn by the two instruments. Then, after t he ~Allegro."we hear a set of exquisite variations on a simple theme. It is interesting that in addition to the usual minor-mode variation (in fourth place here~ each one of the other variations passes through the minor mode, adding dramatic or sentimental touches to
an otherwise gentle and subdued movement.After the fifth variation the theme returns in its original form and a brief coda doses the sonata.

Witold Lutoslawski's artistic path led him from an early nationalistic- folkloristic phase to t he forefront of modern music in the 1960s, and from there to a unique blend of innovation and tradition achieved in theworks of his late period. The present Partito is a product of thoseyearsof artistic synthesis. It was originallywritten for Pinchas Zukerman and Marc Neikrug. who gave the world premiere in St. PauL Minnesota, on January 18. 1985. In 1988, Lutoslawski made a version for violin and orchestra at the request of Anne-Sophie Mutter (for whom he had composed Chain II in 1985);Ms.Mutter immediately recorded t he orchestral Portito for Deutsc he Grammophon.
The composer provided a brief outline in the preface to the score:
The work consists of five movements. Of these the main movements are t he first (NAllegro giusto"), the third ("Largo"), and the fifth tPresto"). The second and fourth are but short interludes to be played od libitum.A short od libitum section also appears before the end of t he last movement.
Ad libitum. in this case, means t hat theviolinandthepianoplaywithoutarrj coordination whatsoever; t hey play t heir parts independently and t hen give each other a cue when rhythmic coordination resumes.The contrast between precisely defined and looser formal sections is a typical feature in Lutoslawski's music; this duality not only selVes to generate the work's structure by creating inner divisions. but also bearsout Lutoslawski's convictionthattherearetimeswhenitis beneficial for a composer to relinquish 100% control over his or her material
The first of the Nmain" movements
alternates between fast motion and lyricaL ex pressive moments. including one where t he violin melody moves in quarter-tones. where the smaller-than- usual distances between pitches adds to theemotionalintensityofthepassage. The central "Largo· is an expansive aria for violin on which the heavy chords of the piano part confer a certain sense of dignity; but t he majestic motion is enlivened time and time again. by delicately expressive, faster-moving violin passages, at one point even evoking some mysterious birdsong. The final kPrestO· brings the whole Partita to its climax with vigorous motion. virtuoso flourishes with harmoniCs. and more.

Camille Saint-Saens Born October 9, 1835in Paris DiedDecember16.1921inAl9iers. France
SNAPSHOTS OF HISTORY .IN 188S: • Bmtms writes his Fourth Symphony • Mark Twain publishes TheAdventl.res 0{

Camille Saint-Saenswas an institution in 19th-century France.A virtuoso pianist and organist as well as a composer of exceptional productivity, he dominated virtually every aspect of the country's musical life, and through his many concert tours abroad he also became a major international celebrity.
He was an avid opera composer, but of his dozen or so stage works. only Samson and Delilah has remained in the repertoire. His instrumental works, however, have continued to
enchant generation after generation of concertgoers. And during a compositional career spanning more than 60 years. Saint-Saens had a chance to write chamber music for almost every instrumentavailable.
The present work, the first of Saint- Saens's two sonatas for violin and piano, was written in 1885, the same year as the famous kOrgan· Symphony. The structure of the two works is similar: both are divided into two large sections. each of which is subdivided into two halves.
The opening movement is based on two main themes: a stormy first idea and a second melody of innocent simplicity. The latter made literary history as it almost certainly became the model for kthe little phrase by Vinteuil· which plays such an important role in Proust's Remembrance of Thin9S Post. Both themes are extensively developed in the course of the movement, which also includes a short fugal passage. The k Allegro agitato· melts without a break into t he lyrical kAdagio,· a soulful dialog between the two instruments accompanied by sensuous harmonies.
The second section opens with a bouncykAllegrettomoderato: ascherzo- type movement whose dance-like theme is tossed back and forth between the violin and t he piano like a ball. A trio section with a singing violin melody follows. after which the dance returns. The trio melody is then fashioned into a transition section leading into the perpetual motion of the finale. The musicgraduallybecomesmoreandmore impassionedasvirtuoso figures and runs multiply in both parts. to breath-taking effect."Vinteuil's little phrase· reappears at first as a respite from t he whirlwind activity, but it is eventually caught up in that whirlwind and contributes more
than a little to the sonata's climactic conclusion.

The Silk Road Ensemble is a musical model that requires curiosity, collaboration. and wholehearted enthusiasm from all the participants. The music we play does not belong to just one culture or even to only the Silk Road region. Ensemble members are united in their demonstration of virtuosity and generosity, and that combination has led US to perform in an astonishing range of locations. from the premier forum for global conversation. the United Nations GeneraiAssembly Hall to the hushed. sacred space of Todai-ji Temple in Nara. Japan.

Tonight's concert openswith a Silk Rood Suite. in which the audience is greeted by Wandering Winds. an imprOVisation among wind instruments that explores the concept
