This project embraces Mr. McFerrin's folk. rock. and blues influences without abandoning his fearless improvisational approach or his never-ending exploration of t he human voice.

He loves to sing this music. and it shO'Ns:spirityouall raises the roof with joyful grooves.
spirityouall continues Mr. McFerrin's life-long quest to integrate all the influences of the musical universe.But as in so many greatAmerican tales. sometimes it turns out that everything one is searching for is in one's own backyard.The project honors the legacy of Bobby McFerrin's fat her, the great operatic baritone Robert McFerrin.

Fordecades. BOBBY McFERRIN has broken all the rules. The 10- time Grammy Award winner has blurred the distinction between pop music and fine art. goofing around barefoot in the world's finest concert halls, exploring uncharted vocal territory. and inspiring a whole new generation of a cappello singers and the beatbox movement. His latest album. spirityouall is a bluesy, feel- good recording. an unexpected move from the music-industry rebel who singlehandedly redefined the role of the humanvoicewithhisacappellahit"Don't Worry. Be Happy." his collaborations with Yo-Yo Ma, Chick Corea. and the Vienna Philharmonic, his improvising choir, Voicestra and his legendary solo vocal performances.
It's been the quietest and most polite of revolutions. Mr. McFerrin was always an unlikely pop star. He created a lasting ear-worm of a"'l hit early in
his career, then he calmly went back to pursuing his own iconoclastic musical journey, improvising on national television, singing melodies without words. spontaneously inventing parts for 60,000 choral singers in a stadium in Germany, ignoring boundaries of genre, all the while defying all expectations. Mr. Mcferrin came from a family of singers: Bobby's father, the MetroIXllitan Opera baritone Robert McFerrin. Sr. provided the singing voice for Sydney Poitier for the film version of Porgy 6 Bess, and his mother Sara was a fine soprano soloist and voice teacher. Bobby McFerrin grew' up surrounded by music of all kinds. He remernbersconducting Beethovenon the stereo at three, hiding under the piano while his father and mother coached young singers. dancing around the house to Louie Armstrong. Judy Garland Etta Jones. and Fred Astaire. He played the clarinet seriously as a child but he began his musical career as a pianist at the age of 14. He led his own jazz groups. studied composition. toured with the show band
for the Ice Follies,and played for dance classes. Then one day he was walking home and suddenly understood that he had been a singer all along.
Mr. McFerrin's history as an instrumentalist and bandleaderis key to understanding his innovative approach to mapping harmony and rhythm (aswell as melody) with his voice."I can't sing everything at once,· he says, "but 1can hintatitsotheaudiencehearsevenwhat 1don't sing: All t hat pioneer spirit and virtuosity has opened up new options for singers; so have Mr. McFerrin's experiments in multi-tracking his voice ("Don't Worry, Be Happy" has seven
separate, over-dubbed vocal tracks; his choral album VOCAbularieS [with Roger Treece] has thousands). But virtuosity isn't the point. "I try not to 'perform' onstage: says Bobby."1try to sing the way 1sing in my kitchen. because 1just can't help myself. 1want audiences to leave the theater and sing in their own kitchens the next morning. 1want to bring audiences into the incredible feeling of joy and freedom 1get when 1 smg

The Baroque erawas the golden age of the trumpet.Whereas the instrument had previously served mostly in military and signaling functions. in t he 17th century it entered the world of art music both in concert and at the theater. The playing technique developed by leaps and bounds, and the greatest com- posers of the time, from Purcell to Handel and Bach. wrote many challenging solos for t heir virtuoso colleagues. Paradoxically, even as the instrument itself was modernized and the natural trumpet was replaced by the modern valve trumpet, its solo literature went into decline.While the trumpet plays a prominent role in almost every major 19th- and 20th-century symphony, for a long time trumpet soloists had to sit in the back of the orchestra rather than stand in front of it. In the last decades, the trumpet as a solo instrument has enjoyed a major renaissance; t his has included t he revival of the great Baroque trumpet repertoire which has found several extraordinary champi- ons on the modern concert stage, whose ranks has in recent years been joined by tonight's soloist, Alison Balsom.

to the Dose of Venice
Tomaso Albinoni was known as the dilettante veneto - a composer of independent means who had been trained as a professional composer but did not need to depend on employment as a musician. Although he wrote a great deal of vocal music (operas and cantatas). his fame rests on his instrumental output mostly concertos and sonatas.
Albinoni is credited with writing the earliest concertos featuring a solo oboe; his first collection featuring such works is t he set from which the present work is taken. Albinoni's oboe writing. penetrating and gently lyrical at the same time, lends itself very well for performance on the trumpet. The composer had a special fondness for emotionally intense Adagios, and the present work offers a particularly attractive example.
Concerto Grosso i n B-flat Major, Op. 6, No.7, HWV 325 (1739)
George Frideric Handel Born February .23, 1685in Holle, Saxony Died April 14, 1759in London
The London Doily Fbst announced to its readership on October 29. 1739:
This day are published proposals for printing by subscription with His Majesty's royal license and protection. Twelve Grand Concertos in seven parts, for four violins. a tenor [viola], a violoncello, with a thorough-bass for the harpsichord. Composed by Mr. Handel. Price to subscribers two guineas. Ready to be delivered by April next. Subscriptions are taken by the author at his house in Brook Street, HanoverSquare.
As Christopher Hogwood writes in his Handel monograph (Thames & Hudson. 1984~theconcertigrossi-were deliberately designed to compete in a field dominated by Corelli's Op. 6: The concerto form perfected by Arcangelo Carelli. with its juxtaposition of a t hree- member concertino with the larger instrumental group (the ripieno), was extremely popular in England. thanks in parttooneofCorelli'smostdistinguished pupils. Francesco Geminiani
Handel too, had known Corelli in person. having met him at Rome in 1707. There is an amusing story of how the 22-year-old Handel grabbed the 54-year-old Corelli's violin and showed him how he wanted a certain passage to be executed.The older man apologized with typical understatement: -Sut rnio caro Sassone [my dear Saxon~ this music is in the French style, which rdo not understand." {It was the overture for Il
Trionfo del Tempo [The Triumph ofTime] by Handel.)
Thirty years later, Handel took a break from the writing of monumental oratorios to compose his Op. 6. in which he paid homage to Corelli and competed withGeminianiallatthesametime.lnthe process. he brought the concerto grosso idea to new heights that had been quite unheard of. The works were intended to stand by themselves. but they could also selVe as overtures or interludes during oratorio performances.
Handel worked with amazing speed. completing the 12 concerti grossi in about a month (between the end of September and the end of October, 1739). In other words. he finished a new piece every two or three days. One circumstance that made such extreme productivity possible was the fact that Handel did not have to invent every single theme in the 50-plus movements anew, but relied heavilyon musicalready written- bothbyhimselfandothers. Handel's borrowings in Op. 5 involve mainly two sources: Gottlieb Muffat's keyboard collection Componirnenti musicali(1736~andDomenicoScarlatti's Essercizi percembaJo (1739).
The sevent h concerto of the set departs from the concerto grosso format in that there are no solos for the concertina: the work is scored for the usual string orchestra. with first and second violins. violas. cellos. and basses with harpsichord continuo. After a brief slow movement we hear a fugue based on a single repeated note (called a "hen fugue: because the repeated note reminded listeners of t he cackling of a hen). The third movement is again slow; it is longer and more dramatic than the opening section. The fourth- movement "Andante" is based on a simple melody repeated in different
keys and interspersed with expressive episodes. The last movement is a lively "Hornpipe" - a popular English dance which Handel "jazzed up" with some syncopated rhythmic patterns and capricious melOOic figures.

Antonio Vivaldi
BomMorch 4. 1678in Venice.ltaJy DiedJuly28, 1741 in Vienna
This Vivaldi concerto seems to work especially well on the trumpet. even t hough its fast runs are extremely challenging.But 0 Major is a particularly good "trumpet key: and some of the rhythmic figures suggest military fanfares even when played on the violin. The "'Larghetto" is one of Vivaldi's most ornate skm movements. and the finale, like the opening movement is brilliant and celebratory. This concerto is part of Vivaldi's first published collection of concertos, Lesrro armanico ("Harmonic Inspiration"); it was transcribed for t w p s ; c h o c d b y 1. S. B a c h .
Atalanta.HWV35 (excerp:.1736) Handel
This overture, scored for solo trumpet two oboes, and strings. continues the festive D-Major mood of the Vivaldi concerto heard before intermission It is in three movements: an opening fanfare, a fugato (a musical form starts out as a fugue but doesn't follow through), and a stately dance. The opera Atalanta was intended for a very joyful event: t he wedding of Frederick, the Prince of Wales. and Princess Augusta of Saxe- Coburg. who came from a duchy close to
Handel'shometown of Halle.(The Prince himself,sonofKingGeorgeIIandfather of George IlL was German-born. like the entire English royal family that came from Hanover.) In the first two sections of t he overture, Handel borrowed material from Telemann's Musique de Table. The heroine of t he opera is Princess Atalanta whose only passion is hunting.She initially resists the wooing of Meleagro, King of Etolia, but in the e n d C u p i d p r e v a i l s o v e r D i a n a . _.

The Prophetess, or The History of Dioclesian was one of Purcell's so-called Nsemi-operas," which were essentially spoken plays with songs and dances inserted as special entertainment. In this case, the play, by John Fletcher and Philip Massinger (it was revised by Thomas Betterton), is ostensibly set in ancient Rome but is in fact as Curtis Price explains in his book on Purcell's dramatic works, Nan uncanny satire on the decadent and badly mismanaged f i n a l y e a r s o f t h e r e i g n o f C h a r l e s IL" w h o died in 1685. Delphia the prophetess of the title, Nmakes prognostications under the influence of alcohol and
indigestion: And Diocles, the soldier who becomes emperor, Nis a fop and a fooL whose humility is forced upon him by stratagem:
The "Dance ofthe Furies"was one of the most grotesque episodes in the sh()V{: the Prophetess attempts to scare the hero by unleashing a bunch of monsters, inspiring one of the most chromatic and most heavily ornamented movements Purcell everwrote.
A year later, Dioclesianwas followed by King Arthur, or the British Worthy, a play by John Dryden for which Purcell composed no fewer t han 40 musical numbers. Here, too, the ancient legend was brought up to date with references to more recent British history, although some of Purcell's music relates to the action only in a loose and indirect way. "Fairest Isle" and "Shepherd Shepherd" are two of the composer's best-known and most endearing tunes, while the "Warlike Consort: also known as the "Trumpet Tune" (so called even though in the original it was scored for strings alone~ illustrates the more martial side ofthework.
A cooconne (together with its close relative, the passacaglia) is a set of variations over a recurrent ground bass or a recurrent harmonic progression. Purcell wasvery fond of this form. which he used in several of his stage works, most famously in Dido and Aeneas.The present Chacony (to use the original spelling)isanindependentpieceinwhich thecomposerhandledthevariationform with remarkable freedomandvirtuosity. In addition to altering the rhythm and ornamenting the melody, he varied t he instrumentation as well omitting the bass in some of t he variations and at one point assigning t he bass melody to t he treble .

Suite for'Irumpet and Strings in
DMajor,HWV341(1733) Handel
The present work was first published in 1733 as NHandel's Water Piece: and in fact. the first movement is an arrangement from Handel's well- known Water Music. In t he absence of any original manuscripts, scholars are uncertain whether this arrangement is in fact by Handel and indeed whether three of the remaining four movements (anNAllegro."anNAir: andtwo"Marches") were even composed by him. (The last march does show up in the 1730 opera Partenope.) Questions of authenticity aside, this is a very attractive work, and the only one for solo trumpet and strings associated with Handel; as such. it is the perfect work to end an evening of Baroque music played on this glorious instrument.
