Senior T/cblt ~rvlcQS Manage portrait of Tolstoy
HugoWolf,thegreatmasteroftheGerman art song wrote only a fewworks of purely instrumental music during his tragically short life. Among these, the Italian Serenocle forstring quartet (later arranged for small orchestra) stands out both as t he most brilliant and t he best known. Wolf, steeped in the music of Richard Wagner and the German poetic tradition (from Johann Wolfgang Goethe to Eduard M6rike~was also strongly attracted tothe Mediterranean region; witness his Italian and Spanish Songbooks. like those song cycles, the Serenade seeks to capture the sunlit southern regions of Europe that Wolfhimselfneverhadachancetovisit.
The one-movement work is cast in a rruxlified rondo form in which t he contrast between the rondo theme and the two episodesistemperedbystrongthematic connections. In his biography of Wolf,
Frank Walker gave a vivid description
of the work, imagining a romantic story
behind the music.The opening of the
work clearly evokes the strumming of the
guitars with which an enamored young
man serenades his beloved.The expressive
passage following the main theme
represents t he voice of the passionate
lover. The cello recitative after t he first
return of t he rondo theme is the man's
thrice-repeated plea for the lady's heart,
surrounded by t he Nmocking corrunents" of
the other instruments.Another episode-
in tumhumorousanddance-like- ensues,
~
before the final return of the rondo theme "o
and a coda which brings back Nthe twang andthedroneofguitars:
Five years after completing t he Italian Serenade, Wolf arranged it for small orchestra.At that point he thought of expanding t he work by composing additional movements, but these never progressed beyond preliminary sketches. So the Serenade remained what it was:a delightful single movement t hat shows the brightest side of this complex and tormented composer. (Having contracted syphilis as a young man, Wolf suffered a complete mental breakdown in 1897 and ended his days in an insane asylum six years later.) Romantic passion and a brooding. melancholy disposition always co-existed with an unbridled sense of humor in Wolfs music; in the Italian Serenade he gave the first two a day off and enjoyed the sunshine, dreaming happy dreams. o

"rrp:>SeS Sinfonb • Major student protests in France
If Barshai's orchestra makes a guest appearance in Leningrad, playing Weinberg's Tenth Symphony and Boris Tchoikovsky$ Sinfonietta. you really hove to hear them They ore two outstanding works. In general. you ought to watch out for both of these composers.
- DmitriShostakovichtoIsaak Glikman. February 1.1969
Shostakovich's words of praise were well deserved. Without a doubt, the 10th of Weinberg's 20 symphonies is an extremely powerful artistic statement. Written immediately after t he opera The Passenger which has recently created a major international sensation. t he symphony displays t he composer's uncanny ability to infuse very simple, almost trivial musical material with great emotional urgency and intensity.
•m The symphony is in five movements, •"
of which t he last four are played without •m pause. In the opening"Concerto grosso: mZ
a "concertino· consisting of violin. viola, cello. and double bass is contrasted with thefullstringorchestra.Itisavibrantand dynamic movement, in which massive chord progressions (reminiscent of a wildly distorted Tchaikovsky Serenade for Strings) alternate with virtuoso solo passages and exciting orchestral climaxes.

The second movementis a"Pastorale· that seems to evoke a frozen landscape. The solo instruments that formed a concertino in the first movement are featured individually here (as well as in the subsequent movements), starting with a tense violin solo over t he suspenseful tremolos of the orchestral strings.The other soloistssoon join in with more dramatic soliloquies and dialogs, eventually fading into silence and giving way to a "Canzone·with a sinuous melcxly "m accompanied by pizzicato (plucked) "o strings. The contrast between legato • melodies (with notes strongly connected) and pizzicato notes. separated from one another, dominates the entire movement. llris section ends with a great emotional buildup,leadingdirectlyintothefourth- movement "Burlesque,· a grotesque dance intrcxluced by the double bass and juxtaposing ponderous episodes with diabolical waltz strains. eerie passages with collegno sounds (played with the wood of the bow) and harmonics. A wild contrapuntal section and more frenzied solos follow, before the massive chords from the first movement return for a grandiose but very unsettling conclusion.

modernist aesthetics; it is nevertheless "modern" in the sense of creating a sound world that has not existed before. Unlike consonances in classical music. those found in Part's works do not fonn typical harmonic progressions and rarely modulate; they remain what t hey are, bell-like sounds in the service of an artistic message whose spiritual nature is impossible to miss.
Singer and conductor Paul Hillier. a long-time champion of Part's music. used the expression "magister ludi" ("The Master of the Game") in the title of one of his articles on the composer. The reference is to the famous novel by Hermann Hesse, also known as The Glass Bead Game, whose hero, like Part, uses a clearly articulated musical sign system to express spiritual meanings. Part's work is always inspired by his strong religious faith and emerges from a background of introspection and silence. Hillier has pointed out that the silence preceding and following music plays a similar role in Part's music as does the awareness of death surrounding life in the religious person's mind.
Like all of Part's "tintinnabuli" music. Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten is characterized by a great sense of inner peace. a strong meditative quality. and a remarkable structural clarity and simplicity. Cantus consists solely of "white" notes (pianistically speaking~ and its musical material is limited to descending scales. with a regular alternation of longer and shorter note values. Part, however. avoids banality by subjecting his material to two fascinating procedures at once. First, he makes his descending scale segments longer and longer (A-G. A-G-F, A-G-F-E. etc" up to almost four octaves in the first violins). Second he resorts to a technique known from medieval music as ' mensuration

It has always been difficult enough for a composer living anywhere to go against the grain and write music that breaks openly with received tradition. But it was doubly difficult to do so in the former Soviet Union, where artistic dissent was more often than not perceived as political dissidence. And it was probably 10 times more difficult for a composer such as Alva Part. who - in addition to his unconventional writing - was known as a committed Russian Orthodox when all forms of religion were strongly discouraged. In his early works.
