Made possible by a gift from Ford Motor Company
Welcome to the 102nd Ann Arbor May Festival, and thank you for your support of the University Musical Society by your attendance at this event.
The University Musical Society is pleased to wel?come back the MET Orchestra with music director James Levine and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra with guest conductor Jerzy Semkow as the principal orchestras featured in this weekend's marvelous series of events. We also welcome back soloists James Galway, Florence Quivar, Michele Ramo, Marcus Belgrave, and Heidi Hepler, and welcome for the first time Margaret Price, and Edith Wiens. Back for their 102nd straight appearance in the May Festival is the UMS Choral Union, performing Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra to close the festival on Sunday afternoon.
I wish to extend thanks to the UMS Advisory Committee for their leadership in planning and carrying out Thursday's Prelude Picnic Buffet and Saturday's Gala Celebration Dinner. Special thanks to Advisory Committee Chair Liz Yhouse, May Festival Chair Maya Savarino, Gala Chair Sue Ullrich, and Prelude Picnic Chair Betty Byrne for their out?standing contributions to these events.
A special thanks to my UMS Board and staff colleagues, whose diligent efforts to keep the UMS both artistically distinctive and financially sound amidst everincreasing political and economic pressures assures our being able to continue to bring you the finest performing artists in the world, such as those appearing in this festival.
Finally, a big thank you to Ford Motor Company, whose generous underwriting gift makes this year's May Festival possible, and whose support throughout the entire season makes Ford a very special member of the UMS family.
Enjoy yourself this weekend! Then plan to join us for as many of the 57 events of the 199596 season as you can, beginning September 29 with Cecilia Bartoli in recital.

Concert Guidelines
To make concertgoing a more convenient and pleasurable experience for all patrons, the Musical Society has implemented the following policies and practices:
Starting Time for Concerts
The Musical Society will make every attempt to begin its performances on time. Please allow ample time for parking. Ushers will seat latecomers at a predetermined time in the program so as not to disturb performers or other patrons.
We welcome children, but very young children can be disruptive to a performance. Children should be able to sit quietly in their own seats throughout a performance. Children unable to do so, along with the adult accompanying them, may be asked by an usher to leave the auditorium. Please use discretion in choosing to bring a child. Remember, everyone must have a ticket, regardless of age.
A Modern Distraction
Please turn off or suppress electronic beeping and chiming digital watches or pagers during performances.
Cameras and Recorders
Cameras and recording devices are strictly prohibited in the auditoria.
Odds and Ends
A silent auditorium with an expectant and sensitive audience creates the setting for an enriching musical experience. To that desired end, performers and patrons alike will benefit from the absence of talking, loud whispers, rustling of program pages, foot tapping, large hats (that obscure a view of the stage), and strong perfume or cologne (to which some are allergic).
University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan
Now in its 116th season, the University Musical Society ranks as one of the oldest and most highlyregarded performing arts presenters in the country.
The Musical Society began in 1879 when a group of singers from Ann Arbor churches gathered together to study and perform the choruses from Handel's Messiah under the leadership of Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and Professor Calvin B. Cady. The group soon became known as the Choral Union and gave its first concert in December 1879. This tradition continues today. The UMS Choral Union performs this beloved oratorio each December.
The Choral Union led to the formation in 1880 of the University Musical Society whose name was derived from the fact that many members were affili?ated with the University of Michigan. Professor Frieze, who at one time served as acting president of the University, became the first president of the Society. The Society comprised the Choral Union and a concert series that featured local and visiting artists and ensembles. Today, the Choral Union refers not only to the chorus but the Musical Society's acclaimed tenconcert series in Hill Auditorium. Through the Chamber Arts Series, Choral Union Series, Choice Events, and the annual May Festival celebration, the Musical Society now hosts over 55 concerts and more than 100 educational events each season featuring the world's finest dance companies, opera, theater, popular attractions, and presentations from diverse cultures. The University Musical Society has flourished these 116 years with the support of a generous music and artsloving community, which has gathered in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center, and The Michigan Theater to experience the artistry of such outstanding talents as Leonard Bernstein, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra, Sweet Honey in the Rock, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Enrico Caruso, Jessye Norman, James Levine, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Urban Bush Women, Benny Goodman, Andres Segovia, The Stratford Festival, The Beaux Arts Trio, Cecilia Bartoli, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
In May of 1993, the Musical Society celebrated its 100th Ann Arbor May Festival with performances by the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra led by Maestro James Levine, Itzhak Perlman, Eartha Kitt, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the University Choral Union, and other artists. Under the leadership of only five directors in its history, the Musical Society has built a reputation of quality and tradition that is maintained and strengthened through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, artists' residencies, programs for young people, and collabo?rative projects.
While it is proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, is housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and collaborates regularly with many University units, the Musical Society is a separate, notforprofit organization, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
Hill Auditorium
Completed in 1913, this renowned concert hall was inaugurated at the 20th Annual Ann Arbor May Festival and has since been home to thousands of University Musical Society concerts, including the annual Choral Union Series, through?out its distinguished 80year history.
Former UM regent Arthur Hill saw the need at the University for a suitable auditorium for holding lectures, concerts, and other university gatherings. Hill bequested $200,000 for construction of the hall, and Charles Sink, then UMS president, raised an additional ?150,000.
Upon entering the hall, concertgoers are greeted by the gilded organ pipes of the Frieze Memorial Organ above the stage. UMS obtained this organ in 1894 from the Chicago Colombian Exposition and installed it in old University Hall (which stood behind present Angel! Hall). The organ was moved to Hill Auditorium for the 1913 May Festival. Over the decades, the organ pipes have undergone many changes in appearance, but were restored to their original stenciling, coloring, and layout in 1986.
Currently, Hill Auditorium is part of the UM's capital campaign, the Campaign for Michigan. Renovation plans for Hill Auditorium have been developed by Albert Kahn and Associates to include elevators, green rooms, expanded bathroom facilities, air conditioning, artists' dressing rooms, and many other necessary improvements and patron conveniences.
A Short History of the Ann Arbor May Festival
For more than a century, Ann Arbor has been ihe stage for one of the most longstanding musical traditions in North America -the Ann Arbor May Festival. From its very earliest offer?ings, the May Festival has been a popular spring event, encompassing six concerts over four days in its heyday. Renowned instrumental and vocal soloists have come to Ann Arbor from all over the world to perform with the Festival's resident orchestras (there have only been eight in the Festival's history).
Initially conceived of as a twoconcert stand by the Boston Festival Orchestra in order to cover the expenses of bringing the group to Ann Arbor (replacements for the traditional visit by the Boston Symphony Orchestra, who cancelled their engage?ment), the first May Festival was a resounding success, opening with Beethoven's Lenore Overture No. 3, and concluding with Verdi's Requem. The Festival was such a success, in fact, that then UMS president Albert Stanley reengaged the orchestra for the next year, and the annual event grew from two concerts to five concerts over three days by 18g6.
The Boston Festival Orchestra decided it could no longer afford to tour in 1905, and new UMS business manager Charles Sink contracted the Frederick Stock Orchestra (later to become the Chicago Symphony Orchestra). After a rocky start, Ann Arbor audiences warmed to the Orchestra, and it remained the resident orchestra for thirtyone years. In 1913, the May Festival moved from the confines of Univesity Hall to the more accommodating Hill Auditorium, where The Chicago Symphony Orchestra (the name changed in 1913 as well) had the honor of giving an inaugural concert featuring Beethoven's Symphony No. 5 in a Festival which swelled to six concerts over four days including a concert featuring a children's chorus made up of Ann Arbor public school children which would become a fixture of the Festival for the next fortyfive years.
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra gave its final May Festival concert in 1935, to be succeeded the fol?lowing year by the Philadelphia Orchestra, thus begin?ning a 49year relationship with Ann Arbor audiences. The Philadelphia Orchestra would remain the resident orchestra through many significant changes in the May Festival, including innovative, thematic programs, and the eventual shrinking of the Festival from six to five concerts in 1967, and then to four in 1976. For almost four decades, Philadelphia conductor Eugene Ormandy almost never missed a May Festival concert, standing aside for the occasional guest conductor, forging a remarkable, always rewarding, relationship with thousands of May Festival concertgoers.
In 1984, after a chorus of "Auld Lang Syne," the Philadelphia played its last May Festival, providing an opening for many different orchestras to share in the May Festival tradition. These have included the Pittsburgh Symphony, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, The Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (now the MET Orchestra), and the Orchestra of St. Luke's.
What is not to be forgotten in this is the many soloists who appeared in Ann Arbor for the May Festival. The endless list includes multiple visits by Ernestine SchumannHeink, Marian Anderson, Lily Pons, John Sutherland, Leontyne Price, Rosa Ponselle, Dietrich FischerDieskau,Jascha Heifetz, Artur Rubinstein, Aaron Copland, Van Cliburn, and YoYo Ma, as well as rare appearances by the likes of Glenn Gould, Igor Stravinsky, Vladmir Horowitz, and Sergei Rachmaninoff.
When the Ann Arbor May Festival reached the century mark in 1993, the University Musical Society took the occasion to celebrate the Festival's glorious past, to applaud the vision, inspiration, and commit?ment of its founder, Albert Stanley, and to thank the dedicated musicloving community which supported and encouraged the Festival from its very inception.

Symphony in b minor, D. 759 ("Unfinished")
Franz Peter Schubert
Born January ji, 1797 in Vienna
Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna
Writings about the origins of Schubert's incomplete Symphony in b minor are necessarily peppered with phrases such as "Schubert probably... " or "Schubert must have...." for history transmits almost no information about this work -only the score itself (the date of October 30, 1822, on the title page, presumably indi?cates its commencement), along with a pre?liminary draft on two staves. And, of course, die fact that it is unfinished: in addition to die two familiar movements, die draft extends to a scherzo and even sixteen bars of a trio; however, only the first twenty bars of diis third movement were orchestrated. (The manuscript full score breaks off after nine bars on a lefthand page, but another leaf, which proved to have been detached from this manuscript, was discovered in Vienna and published by the late Christa Landon in 1970, yielding die orchestration of eleven more bars; the blank reverse of diat page confirms this as die point where Schubert stopped work.)
Nowhere in die surviving documenta?tion surrounding Schubert's life do we find any unequivocal reference to die work. The history of die full score is doubdess germane: at some uncertain date, it ended up in die hands of Anselm Huttenbrenner, a fellow student of Schubert's under Antonio Salieri, who remained his friend even after moving back to his native Graz for good in 1821. Anselm's younger brodier Josef, who setded in Vienna in 1818, became an admirer of Schubert, who used him as a business agent but frequendy found his attentions oppres?sive. In 1823, presumably at Anselm's insti
gation, a musical association in Graz awarded Schubert a diploma. In the 1860s, Josef Huttenbrenner claimed to have transmitted the manuscript of the symphony from Schubert to Anselm as a token of his grati?tude for the diploma, and also averred that it was to be dedicated to Anselm, or to Anselm and the association (depending on which of Josef s statements you read). In the course of attempts by Josef to promote his brother's music, the conductor Johann Herbeck learned of the symphony manu?script, tracked it down, and gave its first per?formance at a concert of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna on December 17, 1865; the finale of Schubert's 1815 Symphony in D Major was used to "complete" the work.
Since then, speculation has run rampant about the reason or reasons Schubert stopped when he did, usually reflecting the esthetic and biographical preoccupations of the speculators and their times. Sober mod?ern scholarship points to several circum?stances. During the years 181822, Schubert left unfinished twice as many instrumental works as he completed, suggesting some sort of compositional crisis (his output of vocal music continued unimpeded). The bminor symphony's completed movements are definitely a breakthrough, exploring expressive realms not previously dealt with in Schubert's symphonic music, although suggested by some of the music for the play Der Zauberharfe and by the first movement (the socalled Quartettsatz) of an unfinished cminor string quartet -both works of 1820. In late 1822, Schubert contracted syphilis and was seriously ill for some months. In that era, the disease was incurable and remained latent after the passing of die initial stages; awareness of the inevitability of the lethal tertiary stage doubtless affected Schubert's attitudes towards life and work.
So perhaps Schubert broke off the symphony because of dissatisfaction with the
Scherzo, or even with some aspect of the earlier movements. Perhaps he doubted that he could conceive a final movement of sufficient breadth to match Beethoven's precedents. Perhaps he felt that he still hadn't cracked the problem of unifying a multimovement instrumental work in this newer, more powerful style. However, he did arrive at an extreme solution of the latter quandary in November 1822 with the "Wanderer" Fantasy -so perhaps he inter?rupted the symphony to write die Fantasy, and then never returned to it after his ill?ness, perhaps simply because it reminded him of his illness. We do not know the reason, even while recognizing as wrongheaded or simplistic many of the answers offered by earlier generations of biographers, historians, popularizers, operetta composers, filmmakers, and the like. We can, however, imagine with some plausibility that Schubert would be dumbfounded that diis "fragment" has become by far his most popular orchestral work.
The symphony is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons; 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones; timpani; and strings. The first movement (Allegro moderato) is an elliptical version of sonataallegro form, embodying in concise dimensions the sudden and striking contrasts of Schubert's later instrumental style. The opening motive,
somberly pensive in die cellos and basses, at first seems simply an introduction to the woodwind melody diat follows, but, after being ignored diroughout the exposition, it dominates die development section, dien vanishes again until die coda. As for the famous second subject, it falls mute before completing a single repetition, after which tremolo chords turn it towards more dra?matic accents -but in die development proper we hear only its syncopated accom?paniment, never diis melody itself.
The slow movement, "Andante con moto," in E Major, is a sonata form widiout development section. The first subject has two members, one lyrical (alternating winds and pizzicato basses widi legato strings), die odier soon rendered more dramatic by a striding bass in octaves. The second subject, sung first by a solo clarinet, shares widi its counterpart in die first movement a synco?pated accompaniment; it too is eventually treated dramatically. The coda is remark?able for die modulations Schubert draws from die sustained notes that earlier intro?duced die second subject: "as subde a stroke of genius as can be found anywhere in music," according to die great analyst Donald Francis Tovey.
Four Last Songs
Richard Strauss
Born June 11, 1864, in Munich, Bavaria Died September 8, 1949, in GarmischPartenkirchen
At the end of World War II, in a defeated Germany desperately short of food and fuel, the octogenarian Strauss found himself des?titute, for his royalties had stopped entirely. In fall 1945, his Englishbased publisher Ernst Roth finally persuaded die Strausses to go into a Swiss exile, where they could be properly fed and cared for; he also promoted a visit to London in 1947, where perfor?mances and even some conducting improved the composer's finances and morale. His interest in instrumental com?position, reawakened during the war, had deepened with the composition of Metamorphosen (1945), a remarkable medita?tion for 23 strings, initially stimulated by the destruction of German theaters and cities during the war's final year. In Switzerland, an oboe concerto (1946) and DuetConcertino (1947) followed, and Strauss also began to think of songs again.
According to Timothy Jackson's research, Strauss copied Eichendorff s poem "Im Abendrot" into a sketchbook on April 3, 1946; a musical sketch may also date from this time, but the song was not completed until May 6, 1948. By July 18, he had finished setting Hesse's "Fruhling," a poem he had copied into a sketchbook more than a year earlier, and he then went on to set two further Hesse poems, "Beim Schlafengehen" and "September" (finished on August 4 and September 20, respectively). Two other Hesse poems, "Nacht" and "Hohe des Sommers," were also considered but apparendy rejected.
Though they were assembled and pub?lished by Roth as Four Last Songs, diere is no firm evidence that Strauss considered these songs a "cycle." (Indeed, the adjective in
the title is certainly incorrect; the truly "last" song, "Malven," for voice and piano, com?posed for and given to the soprano Maria Jeritza, was only recendy made public.) Still, internal factors are convincing: the valedictory mood, the related subject matter of the poems with their references to die summer's transition to fall and die coming of night and deadi -even the prominence of the horn at die end of each song, con?ceivably a tribute to die composer's fadier. The four songs are dedicated to friends who in various ways supported Strauss in his exile: his friend and biographer Willi Schuh, his Swiss banker Adolf Jahr and his wife, Jeritza and her husband, and Rodi.
At die first performance, in London on May 22, 1950, by Kirsten Flagstad and die Philharmonia Orchestra under Wilhelm Furtwangler, the order of performance was "Beim Schlafengehen," "September," "Fruhling," and "Im Abendrot." Subsequendy, for publication, die order of die first diree songs was reversed, yielding the now standard sequence, progressing via spring, fall, and night to deadi. At any rate, diere was never any doubt that "Im Abendrot," diough first composed, should come last: after an opening burst of evening sun, the poem's "we" becomes clearly identified by the music (including die horn's quotation from Death and Transfiguration) widi Strauss and Pauline, alone and weary, wandering dirough die twilight towards sleep. In addition, it is die longest song and die most heavily scored, calling for triple winds; 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and tuba; timpani; and strings. ("Fruhling" requires a harp and an addi?tional bassoon, "September" also calls for harp, and "Beim Schlafengehen" requires celesta and an additional piccolo.) The grave finality of die final measures of "Im Abendrot" brings to a final and fitting cadence, not only die career of Richard Strauss, but also die entire romantic era in music.
Hermann Hesse
In dammrigen Gruften
traumte ich lang
von deinen Baumen und blauen Luften,
von deinem Duft und Vogelsang.
Nun liegst du erschlossen in Gleiss und Zier, von Licht ubergossen wie ein Wunder vor mir.
Du kennest mich wieder,
du lockest mich zart,
es zittert durch all' meine Glieder
deine selige Gegenwart!
Der Garten trauert,
kuhl sinkt in die Blumen der Regen.
Der Sommer schauert
still seinem Ende entgegen.
Golden tropft Blatt urn Blatt nieder vom hohen Akazienbaum Sommer lachelt erstaunt und matt in den sterbenden Gartentraum.
Lange noch bei den Rosen bleibt er stehen, sehnt sich nach Ruh. Langsam tut er die (grossen) mudgewordnen Augen zu.
In dusky caverns
I dreamed long
of your trees and azure breezes,
of your scents and birdsong.
Now you lie revealed in glitter and array, bathed in light like a miracle before me.
You recognize me again, tenderly you beckon to me. Through all my limbs quivers your blissful presence.
The garden is in mourning;
the rain sinks coolly on the flowers.
Summertime shudders
Quietly to its close.
Leaf upon golden leaf is dropping down from the tall acacia tree. Summer smiles amazed and exhausted on the dying dream that was this garden.
Long by the roses still it tarries, yearns for rest, slowly closes its (great) weary eyes.
Beim Schlafengehen
Nun der Tag mich mud gemacht, soil mein sehnliches Verlangen freundlich die gestirnte Nacht wie ein mudes Kind empfangen.
Hande, lasst von allem Tun, Stirn, vergiss du alles Denken, alle meine Sinne nun wollen sich in Schlummer senken.
Und die Seele unbewacht will in freien Flugen schweben, um im Zauberkreis der Nacht tief und tausendfach zu leben.
Im Abendrot
Joseph von Eichendorff
Wir sind durch Not und Freude gegangen Hand in Hand, vom Wandern ruhen wir (beide) nun uberm sullen Land.
Rings sich die Taler neigen, es dunkelt schon die Luft, zwei Lerchen nur noch steigen nachtraumend in den Duft.
Tritt her, und lass sie schwirren, bald ist es Schlafenszeit, dass wir uns nicht verirren in dieser Einsamkeit.
O weiter, stiller Friede! So tief im Abendrot, wie sind wir wandermude -ist dies etwas der Tod
Going to Sleep
Now that day has tired me,
my spirits long for
starry night kindly
to enfold them, like a tired child.
Hands, leave all your doing; Brow, forget all your thoughts. Now all my senses want to sink themselves in slumber.
And the soul unwatched, would soar in free flight, till in the magic circle of night it lives deeply and a thousandfold.
At Sunset
Through want and joy we have walked hand in hand; we are (both) resting from our travels now, the quiet countryside below us.
Around us the valleys incline; already the air grows dark. Two larks still soar alone halfdreaming, into the haze.
Come here, and let them fly about; soon it is time for sleep. We must not go astray in this solitude.
O spacious, tranquil peace, so profound in the sunset. How tired we are of travelling -is this perchance death

Pictures at an Exhibition
Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky
Born March 21, 1839, in Kareuo, in the
Pskov district of Russia Died March 28, 1881, in St. Petersburg
Orchestrated by Maurice Ravel
Born March 7, 1875, in Ciboures in the
Basses Pyrenees, France Died December 28, 1937, in Paris
Mussorgsky composed the suite for piano Pictures at an Exhibition (Kartinki s vistavki) in the first half of 1874, the year that his opera Boris Godunov was finally produced at the Maryinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg. In 1922, Ravel orchestrated Mussorgsky's work on commission from the cohductor Serge Koussevitzky, beginning with the final piece, which was finished in May, and com?pleting it that fall. Koussevitzky conducted the first performance at the Paris Opera on October 19, 1922, gave the American pre?miere on November 7, 1924, during his first season with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, published the score in his Edition Russe de Musique in 1929, and made the first recording the following year with the Boston Symphony.
Ravel's orchestration calls for 3 flutes (1 doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (1 doubling English horn), 2 clarinets and bass clarinet, alto saxophone, 2 bassoons and contrabassoon; 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones and tuba; timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, tamtam, triangle, rattle, whip, glockenspiel, bells, celesta, and xylophone; and 2 harps and strings.
At least in program notes, Mussorgsky's major works today come at us enveloped in a miasma of fact and opinion concerning versions, editions, orchestrations, alterations, corruptions, and bowdlerizations. Remarkably, the works survive this: in what
ever form, they preserve a remarkable immediacy and impact -none more so than Pictures at an Exhibition, which, in Maurice Ravel's orchestration, is surely Mussorgsky's mostplayed score. Not even our era's passion for "authenticity" is likely to displace this inspired collaboration of two disparate geniuses over a span of nearly fifty years.
The exhibition in question was a memorial devoted to the work of Mussorgsky's friend Viktor Hartmann, an architect and painter whose death on July 23 (old style) or August 4 (new style), 1873, evidendy sent the composer off on one of his alltoofrequent benders. Perhaps die news that Boris Godunov had finally been accepted for performance put him back on track; in any case, die Hartmann show inspired a suite for piano -Mussorgsky's only significant instrumental work after St. John's Eve on Bald Mountain (1867).
Some of die pictures Mussorgsky musi?cally repainted were apparendy not actually in die exhibition, while at least one diat was -Hartmann's design for a gate to be built in Kiev commemorating Tsar Alexander H's escape from assassination in April 1866 -grew much grander in its musical from. No matter -die original work is a vividly imag?ined and cannily structured stroll through die gallery, which in recent decades has firmly established itself in die pianist's repertory.
Ravel, who himself set most of his musi?cal works for piano before orchestrating diem (and was not averse to later orchestrat?ing those he had first conceived specifically for die keyboard), was an ideal choice to orchestrate Mussorgsky's suite. Mussorgsky's music had already been in vogue in France, especially after Serge Diaghilev brought a Russian company to Paris to play Boris in 1908; later, in 1913, die impresario commissioned Ravel and Stravinsky to compose music to fill gaps in the score of
Mussorgsky's incomplete opera Khovanshchina. No composer commanded the resources of the French modern orchestra as did Ravel, and he believed in the validity of transcription, of freshly inter?preting an existing work, as long as it met a single important condition -as he put it when reviewing Henri Rabaud's orchestration of Faure's Dolly Suite for piano duet: "that good taste presides." Mussorgsky's suite comprises ten principal movements, preceded by a "Promenade," which returns several times as the visitor to the exhibition progresses from one picture to the next (Ravel's version omits one of these). The following brief notes are based on those by Mussorgsky's friend and mentor, the critic Vladimir Vassilevich Stassov, included in the first edition of the original score.
Gnomus: a sketch depicting a little gnome, clumsily running with crooked legs. [This was apparently a design for a nutcracker (the nuts to be inserted in the gnome's mouth), intended for the Christmas tree at the Artists'Club (1869).]
II vecchio castello (The old castle): a medieval castle before which a troubadour sings a song.
Tuileries: dispute d'enfants apres jeux (Quarrel of children after play): an avenue in the garden of die Tuileries, with a swarm of children and nurses.
Bydlo (Cattle): a Polish cart on enormous wheels, drawn by oxen.
Ballet of unhatched fledglings: Hartmann's design for die decor of a picturesque scene in the ballet Trilby. [This was produced at St. Petersburg's Bolshoi Theater in 1871,
with choreography by Marius Petipa, music by Julius Gerber and decor by Hartmann; the fledglings were canary chicks.]
Two Polish Jews, rich and poor. [The ori?gin "Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuyle," frequendy given as the tide of diis number, remains unknown.]
Limoges. Le marche (The market): French women quarreling violendy in the market. [In die autograph manuscript, Mussorgsky wrote, and then crossed out, two versions of die text of diis dispute, mainly concerning whedier or not a farmer has found his lost cow.]
Catacombae (Catacombs): Hartmann represented himself examining the Paris catacombs by the light of a lantern. [The description in the exhibit catalog read: "Interior of Paris catacombs with figures of Hartmann, the architect Kenel, and the guide holding a lamp." For all that, the autograph score is inscribed "Sepulcrum romanum" (Roman sepulcher). In the autograph score, the second part of the piece is prefaced by the following note: "N.B.: Latin text: with the dead in a dead language. A Latin text would be suitable: the creative soul of the dead Hartmann leads me to the skulls, invokes them, the skulls shine softly." In the published score, this section, based on the music of the "Promenade," is thus inscribed "Con mortuis in lingua morta."]
The Hut on Fowls' Legs: Hartmann's draw?ing depicted a clock in the form of BabaYaga's hut on fowls' legs. Mussorgsky added BabaYaga's flight in a mortar. [The witchlike BabaYaga, a familiar figure in Russian folklore (she turns up also in musical works by Dargomizhsky, Liadov, and RimskyKorsakov) was tall and bony, lived in a cot?tage supported by fowls' legs; her principal mode of locomotion was aboard an iron mortar, which she propelled with a pestle while sweeping away all traces of her pas?sage with a broom.]
The Heroes' Gate at Kiev: Hartmann's sketch was his design for the city gates at Kiev in the ancient Russian massive style with a cupola shaped like a Slavonic helmet.

A director of the m Metropolitan (pera, B". fames Levine has develk oped .1 relationship there V since his debul twenty,JK four years ago that is unparalleled in its history and unique in the musical world today. He has led nearly 1500 performances of more than sixty different operas, including the first Met performances of Mozart's Idomeneo and La Clemenza di Titcr, Gershwin's Porgy and Bess; Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex; Verdi's Vespri Siciliani, Stiffelio and Lombardi; Weill's Rise and Fall of the City ofMahagonny, Schoenberg's Erwartung; Berg's Lulu; and the world premiere performances of John Corigliano's The Ghosts of Versailles. He inaugurated the live performance television series for America's public television (The Metropolitan Opera Presents" is now seen regularly around the globe), founded the Met's Young Artist Development Program, returned Wagner's complete "Ring" cycle to the repertoire (the first integral cycles in fifty years), and reinstated recitals and con?certs with Met artists at the opera house, a former Metropolitan tradition. Expanding on that tradition, the MET Orchestra began touring in concert in 1991 and since then has performed around the world including Japan and Canada, at Expo lg2 in Seville, in its German debut in Frankfurt last May (as part of that city's 1200th anniversary celebration), and now on its own threeconcert subscription series in Carnegie Hall. This month the Orchestra and James Levine are undertaking a fourteenday crosscountry tour with soloists Margaret Price and James Galway.
Maestro Levine's most recent recordings with the Metropolitan Opera include Trovatore (DomingoMilloZajick ChernovMorris), Verdi ballet music, an allBerg disc (with Renee Fleming) and, for release later this year, Der Fliegende Hollander
(MorrisVoigtHeppnerRooteringGroves) for Sony Classical; Envartung (Jessye Norman) for Philips Classics; Manon Lescaut (Freni PavarottiCroftBartoli) for Decca Records; and Parsifal (DomingoMollNorman MorrisWlaschiha), Wagner overtures, Pictures at an ExhibitionThe Rite of Spring and the Beethoven "Eroica"Schubert "Unfinished" for Deutsche Grammophon. (Rigoletto with ChernovPavarottiStuder and Idomeneo with DomingoBartoliVaness Murphy will be released on DG in 199596.) James Levine has had close associations since the 1970s with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (which he led for twenty years as Music Director of the Ravinia Festival); the Berlin Philharmonic at home, at the Salzburg, Whitsun and Lucerne Festivals, and on tour in the U.S.; and the Vienna Philharmonic at the Salzburg Festival, in Vienna, and on tour in Europe and America. Among his engage?ments this season are performances with the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Israel Philharmonic and the Dresden Staatskapelle, in addition to his regular Berlin Philharmonic and MET Orchestra concerts. Maestro Levine led the Vienna Philharmonic last
November in Vienna, then took the orchestra on tour to London, Paris and Berlin, and he will return to Vienna in October for further performances there before he and the VPO embark on a twoweek tour to the Far East.
Mr. Levine has been an annual guest at the Salzburg Festival since his debut in 1975. His collaboration there with the late JeanPierre Ponnelle included new productions of Mozart's La Clemenza di Tito (later filmed by UNITEL), the legendary Die Zauberflote (the longestrunning opera production in die Festival's history), Idomeneo and Le Nozze di Figaro, as well as the Salzburg Festival premiere productions of Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann and Schoenberg's Moses und Ann.
In 1982, James Levine had the distinction of conducting die Centennial Production of Parsifal in Bayreuth, and found the work in diat unique theatre so artistically satisfying diat he returned each summer to conduct its revival and, eventually, a second new production of the same opera. Beginning last summer, he conducts die new Alfred KirchnerRosalie production of die Ring of the NibelungaX die Bayreuth Festival.
In addition to his responsibilities at the Metropolitan Opera, Maestro Levine is a distinguished pianist and an active recital collaborator, most especially in Lieder and song repertoire. He began accompanying such wellknown artists as Jennie Tourel, Hans Hotter and Eleanor Steber more than diirty years ago, and since diat time has given joint recitals widi many of die great singers of our time, among diem Jan Peerce, Adele Addison, Regine Crespin, Nicolai Gedda, Leontyne Price, Christa Ludwig, Placido Domingo, Birgit Nilsson, Cornell MacNeil, Kadileen Batde, Kiri Te Kanawa, Hermann Prey.Jessye Norman, Bryn Terfel, Luciano Pavarotti, Elisabedi Soderstrom, Renata Scotto, Martti Talvela, Tatiana Troyanos, Marilyn Home, Maria Ewing, Uwe Heilmann, Margaret Price, Dawn Upshaw and Frederica von Stade.
Mr. Levine was the first recipient of New York City's annual cultural award and was presented with the Smetana Medal by the Czechoslovak government in 1986. He has been named "Musician of the Year" by the journal Musical America, was featured in a Time magazine cover story, and was the subject of a television documentary coproduced by UNITEL and PBS. He holds honorary doctorates from the University of Cincinnati (the city of his birth), the New England Conservatory of Music and Northwestern University, and has lectured at Harvard and Yale Universities, Sarah Lawrence College and The Juilliard School.
This season's May Festival marks Maestro Levine's fourth and fifth appearances under UMS auspices.
Soprano Margaret Price was born in Wales and studied at Trinity College of Music in London. She made her debut with die Welsh National Opera as Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro, a role she repeated at Covent Garden the following year when she replaced die indisposed Teresa Berganza on short notice.
She made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Desdemona in Otello in 1985, conducted by James Levine, and she has also been heard widi all the world's leading opera companies, including die Vienna State Opera, the Paris Opera, La Scala, die Lyric Opera of Chicago, die San Francisco Opera, and die Bavarian State Opera in Munich.
Miss Price has been heard as Mozart's Constanze, Pamina, die Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro (which she sang at die Met earlier diis season), Fiordiligi, and Donna Anna. Her Verdi roles include Elisabetta in Don Carlo at La Scala conducted by Claudio
Abbado and Amelia in a new production of Un Ballo in Maschera at the Vienna State Opera, also conducted by Maestro Abbado. Other new productions she has appeared in include Norma at Covent Garden, Adriana Lecouvreur and Ariadne aufNaxos at die Bavarian State Opera, and Tannhduser at die Berlin State Opera. At the Metropolitan she has also been heard as Elisabetta and in recital widi James Levine. In 1976 she was heard at the Metropolitan Opera House as both Desdemona and die Countess during the United States tour of die Paris Opera.
She is also wellknown as a soloist with orchestra and as a recitalist, and among her many recordings are Strauss songs widi Wolfgang Sawallisch, Liszt songs widi Cyprien Katsaris, and Schubert, Mendelssohn and Brahms with Graham Johnson. Highlights of her opera discography include Cost fan tutte conducted by Otto Klemperer, Tristan und Isolde conducted by Carlos Kleiber, Die Zauberflote conducted by Colin Davis, Le Nozze di Figaro conducted by Riccardo Muti, and Un Ballo in Maschera conducted Georg Solti.
Margaret Price is a Bayerische Kammersangerin, and was made a CBE in 1982. She was made a Doctor of Music of die University of Wales in 1988, and in 1993 she received die order of Dame of die British Empire.
Tonight's concert marks Dame Price's UMS debut.
The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra is today regarded as one of the world's finest orchestras. From the time of the company's inception in 1883, the ensemble has worked with leading conductors in both opera and concert performances and has developed into an orchestra of enormous technical polish and style.
The Met Orchestra maintains a demand?ing schedule of performances and rehearsals during the thirtyweek New York season, when the company performs seven times a week in a repertory that normally encompasses approximately twentyfive operas. Following the New York season, there are frequently tours, both in the United States and abroad, which in turn are followed by a series of free concert opera performances in the parks of New York City and New Jersey.
The Orchestra has a distinguished history of performances as a concert orchestra, in addition to its opera schedule. Arturo Toscanini, who conducted almost 500 per?formances at the Met, made his American debut as a symphonic conductor with the Met Orchestra in 1913. Gustav Mahler, during the few years he was in New York, conducted fiftyfour Met performances. More recently, many of the world's great conductors have led the orchestra: Walter, Beecham, Reiner, Mitropoulos, Kempe, Szell, Bohm, Solti, Maazel, Bernstein, Mehta, Abbado, Karajan, Dohnanyi, Haitink, Tennstedt, and Ozawa. Carlos Kleiber's only United States performances of opera have been with the Met Orchestra.
The impressive list of instrumental soloists who have appeared with the Orchestra includes Efrem Zimbalist, Leopold Godowsky, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Josef Lhevinne, Arthur Rubinstein, Pablo Casals, Benno Moiseiwitsch, Josef Hofmann, Ferruccio Busoni, Jascha Heifetz, Wilhelm Backhaus, Moritz Rosendial, and Fritz Kreisler. During the Metropolitan's 198081 season the Met's artistic director, James Levine, conducted the orchestra in
two performances of Mahler's Second Symphony.
The Orchestra's current high standing led to its first commercial recordings in nearly 20 years, Wagner's complete "Ring" cycle, conducted by James Levine. Recorded by Deutsche Grammophon over a period of three years, Das Rheingold, Die Walkiire, and Gotterdammerung are winners of an unprece?dented three consecutive Grammy Awards in 1989, 1990 and 1991 for Best Opera Recording. Now in great demand for recording, Maestro Levine and the Met Orchestra are involved with a series of complete operas for DG, as well as for Sony Classical, Philips Classics and Decca. Recent recordings by the Orchestra and Mr. Levine also include Donizetti's L'Elisir d'Amore, Verdi's Aida, Don Carlo, Luisa Miller, Rigoletto, La Traviata, and Trovatore, Mozart's Idomeneo and Le Noxze di Figaro, Wagner's Der Fliegende Hollander and Parsifal, Schoenberg's Erwartung, and Puccini's Manon Lescaut, as well as a collection of Wagner overtures, Verdi ballet music, an allBerg disc with Renee Fleming, and the Orchestra's first symphonic recordings: a pairing of Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition and Stravinsky's Rite of Spring and a pairing of Beethoven's "Eroica" Symphony and Schubert's "Unfinished" Symphony.
In the spring of 1991 the Orchestra under the leadership of Maestro Levine began annual concert touring with a maiden appearance in Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium under the auspices of the University Musical Society. Since that time, the Orchestra has traveled to such diverse locales as Japan; Canada; Seville's Expo '92; Frankfurt, Germany, as part of that city's 1200th birth?day celebration last May; and annually to Carnegie Hall. This month the Orchestra is making its first crosscountry tour of the United States.
This season's May Festival marks The MET Orchestra's fourth and fifth appearances under UMS auspices.

Suite from The Firebird
Igor Fedorovich Stravinsky
Born June ij, 1882 in Oranienbaum
[now Lomonosov, in the Northwest Leningrad
region of Russia] Died April 6, 1971 in New York City
Few cultural manifestations of the twentieth century can compare with the explosion that the Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev set off by importing Russian music and theater to Paris, beginning in 1907. At first the emphasis was on opera -concerts in 1907, a staged Boris Godunovviith Chaliapin in 1908 -but in 1909 the Ballets Russes was launched. The exotic splendor and physical virtuosity of works such as Scheherazade and the "Polovtsian Dances" from Prince Igor made an indelible impres?sion. Although the initial season used exist?ing music, Diaghilev had already commis?sioned a new score for his next season, in June 1910; the scenario, based on a Russian national legend, had been worked out by the choreographer Mikhail Fokine, in collaboration with others in the impresario's retinue.
Had Anatol Liadov, Diaghilev's onetime harmony teacher, been more industrious, he might today be remembered as composer of The Firebird rather than for such shorter orchestral works as Kikimora and BabaYaga. But Liadov was a procrastinator; when Diaghilev realized that the commission would not be ready in time, he turned to a twentysevenyearold pupil of the late Nicolai RimskyKorsakov, Igor Stravinsky. Diaghilev had heard Stravinsky's short orchestral fantasy Fireworks in February 1909, and subsequently utilized his services to orchestrate two Chopin piano pieces for Les Sylphides. But The Firebird was a much more prestigious exposure --so much so
that Stravinsky began work on the score in November 1 gog, even before Liadov's with?drawal had become official.
Thanks to his training with RimskyKorsakov, Stravinsky was wellequipped for die subject; his teacher's orchestral palette and die exotic harmonic resources diat fas?cinated Rimsky's circle around die turn of die century were just what The Firebird called for. And his own breaddi of interests fitted well with Diaghilev's: in the words of Alexander Benois, one of Diaghilev's lead?ing designers (diough not of Firebird, for which die decors were die work of Golovine):
Unlike most musicians. . .Stravinsky was deeply interested in painting, architecture, and sculpture. Although he had no grounding in these subjects, discussion with him was very valuable, to us, for he "reacted" to everything for which we lived. In those days he was a very willing and charming "pupil."
The score for die ballet was basically com?pleted in April, but die final revisions are dated May 18, igio; the first performance took place at die Paris Opera on June 25, igio, conducted by Gabriel Pierne, widi Tamara Karsavina in die dde role (which Anna Pavlova reportedly turned down because she diought die music complicated and meaningless). The Firebird immediately established Stravinsky on die international musical scene, and confirmed an association widi Diaghilev diat lasted until die latter's deadi; aldiough not in itself revolutionary, diis first collaboration paved die way for odiers diat still stand among die century's most innovative and influential. The StravinskyDiaghilev ballets also remain central to die dance repertory: revivals of die original Fokine Firebird are still current, along widi odier versions, including diose by George Balanchine (ig4g), using decors
by Marc Chagall, and Maurice Bejart (1970).
The work's reception immediately led Stravinsky to prepare a concert version (191 x), retaining the extravagant scoring of the complete ballet. Later, in 1919, he made another suite, with somewhat different contents and a more normal orchestration; this "1919 Firebird remains the score's most popular incarnation, though Stravinsky assembled another and longer suite in 1945 for substantially the same orchestration (in part to recover performance royalties that he was losing because the earlier versions lacked copyright protection in the United States). In recent years, concert performances of the complete original score have also become more frequent.
The scenario revolves around the opposing figures of the Firebird, a glittering incarnation of the good fairy, and the evil ogre Kashchei, who holds prisoner the maidens who wander into his realm, and turns the men to stone. The catalyst is Prince Ivan Tsarevich, who captures the Firebird in Kashchei's magic garden and keeps one of her feathers before releasing her. Watching Kashchei's captive princesses as they dance, he falls in love with one of them. Pursuing her, he breaks into Kashchei's palace and is eventually saved from the usual fate when he summons the Firebird with her feather. She appears and shows him how to nullify Kashchei's immor?tality. The ogre dies, all his spells are broken, and Ivan can marry his princess.
In characterizing the tale's elements, Stravinsky relied upon a traditional Russian contrast between folklike, diatonic music and highly chromatic material to depict, respectively, mortals and supernatural creatures. The movements of the suite are as follows:
1. "Introduction; The Firebird and her Dance; Variation of the Firebird." Kashchei's magic kingdom is limned by the harmonically ambiguous lines in the cellos
and basses, while die Firebird (whose entry is heralded by the glassy sheen of string glissandos on harmonic notes) dances to pizzicato and bouncingbow string phrases, staccato trumpets, and virtuosic wind figurations.
2. "The Khorovod of the Princesses." This round dance is based on alternating diatonic melodies.
3. "Infernal Dance of King Kashchei." The climax of the score is die wild, highly syncopated dance to which the Firebird incites Kashchei and his monsters, at the end of which diey fall dead.
4. "Berceuse." The lullaby, introduced by a bassoon melody, is danced by die Firebird, gesturing over the monsters and lulling them to eternal slumber. A magical string transition leads to:
5. "Finale." The horn announces a new dieme, which is repeated in more expansive orchestrations and dien transformed into a jubilant conclusion in 74 meter.
The 1919 Firebird suite is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes and English horn, 2 clarinets,
2 bassoons; 4 horns in F, 3 trumpets in C,
3 trombones, tuba; timpani, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, xylophone, harp, piano; and strings. (The original scoring included quadruple winds; an additional trumpet; tamburo, tamtam, campanelli, celesta;
2 more harps; and a stage band of 3 trumpets, 2 tenor tubas, and 2 bass tubas.)
Concerto for Flute and Orchestra, Op. 39
Lowell Liebermann
Born February 22, 1961, in New York City
In the years since his debut as a composer, Lowell Liebermann has become an increas?ingly prominent figure on the American musical scene. That debut came early: Liebermann's Opus 1 is a Piano Sonata (1977) that he performed himself in Carnegie Recital Hall at the age of sixteen. At thejuilliard School, his teachers included David Diamond and Vincent Persichetti (composition) and Jacob Lateiner (piano). Also a student of conducting with Laszlo Halasz, he was active as a performer for several years until the demand for his compositions crowded that out. His catalogue now extends to well over forty works, many in such traditional instrumental genres as sonata (solo and duo), concerto (two for piano), and nocturne (four for piano to date, plus a Sonata Notturna). Among his works currently available on records are the Sonata for Flute and Piano, Op. 23 (1988), and Gargoyles, Op. 29, for piano (1989). A continuing interest in vocal music, in the form of several song cycles, has led to a twoact opera, The Picture of Dorian Gray, with a libretto by die composer based on the Oscar Wilde story; this is scheduled for performance by L'Opera de Monte Carlo in May 1996, to be followed by an American premiere in March 1997 by Opera Pacific.
Pertinent in the context of the present work is Liebermann's continuing interest in the flute -not only the already mentioned sonata, but also another with guitar accom?paniment (Op. 25, 1989), both of which attracted the interest of James Galway. After playing the earlier work in recital, the flutist requested an orchestral version, but the composer preferred to begin afresh with a
new work specifically tailored for the new medium. A commission resulted in the Concerto, finished in September 1992. Since then, Liebermann has also produced Soliloquy for solo flute (Op. 44, 1994).
For the Concerto's first performance, given on November 6, 1992, by James Galway, with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leonard Slatkin, Mr. Liebermann provided the following note:
The first movement, "Moderate, " is an arclike form, all of whose components are in fact variations on the harmonic progression of its principal theme. The central section of this movement is a set of explicit chaconne variations and a chorale version of this progression.
The second movement, "Adagio molto, " presents a lyrical melody which is spun out over a pulsating syncopated ostinalo which persists through the entire length of the movement. The final movement, "Presto," is a virtuoso workout for the flutist in a rondolike form which closes with a prestissimo coda.
To this might be added the observation that the forms and materials are everywhere clearly defined: for example, the chaconne variations in the first movement are differ?entiated by such traditional means as figura?tion and scoring. In addition to the solo flute, the orchestra includes: piccolo, flute, oboe, English horn, clarinet, bass clarinet, bassoon, contrabassoon; 2 horns, 2 trum?pets; timpani and the following percussion (1 player): snare drum, bass drum, sleigh bells, glockenspiel, triangle, cymbals, vibra?phone, ratchet; piano and harp; and strings. The scoring is skillfully attentive to the solo instrument's dynamic range, and the varied battery of percussion is used sparingly by the single player.
Andante and Rondo for Two Flutes and Orchestra, Op. 25
Franz Doppler
Born October 16, 1821, in Lemberg, Germany
[now L'vov, Ukraine] Died July 27, 1883, in Baden, near Vienna
Time was when the name of Franz Doppler on an orchestral program probably indicated that one or more of Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsodies were being played; in collaboration with the composer, he made the standard orchestral versions of six of these, including the onceomnipresent Second. But in his own time Doppler covered a wide range of musical activities, to which the flute was central. Son of an oboistcomposer, he made his debut as a flutist in Vienna at the age of thirteen, and soon began touring with his younger brother Karl as a flute duo that continued for many years. For two decades beginning in 1838, his base was Budapest, first as an orchestral flutist, and later as a composer of operas on Hungarian national themes, while the two brothers were also active in the establishment of the Hungarian Philharmonic Orchestra (1853). In 1858 Franz moved to Vienna, as first flutist at the Court Opera and later also conductor of its ballet. Here, he composed some fifteen ballet scores, and a German opera, Judith (1870), while also teaching flute at the Conservatory.
The fraternal virtuosity of the Doppler brothers is enshrined in a number of works for two flutes. In addition to the present Andante and Rondo, Franz's contributions include a Concerto in d minor, a Hungarian Duettino, and La Sonnambula: Paraphrase in Recollection ofAdelina Patli, while the brothers collaborated on still other works, among them a Fantasy and Variations on Themes from Rigoletto. In contemporary published editions, these works usually appear with piano
accompaniment, but orchestral performance would have been likely on occasion; "original" orchestrations may still lie buried in European theater archives, but in the meantime modern musicians have prepared scores to fill the gap. James Galway's version of the Andante and Rondo is modestly scored, for oboe, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, and strings. The solo writing of the Adagio, in the key of A Major, recalls the vocal style of Bellini's operatic duets, if often at a higher altitude; a more animated central section in a minor provides contrast. The initial key of the Rondo is a minor, which is intro?duced by trills in the orchestral winds; it later proceeds to a more lyrical episode in F Major, and eventually winds up in a bounc?ing C Major. The writing in this movement is more instrumental in character.
An American in Paris
George Gershwin
Born September 26, 1898, in Brooklyn, New York
Died July 11, 1937, in Hollywood, California
Appropriately enough, the first idea for the tone poem An American in Paris came to George Gershwin in the City of Lights itself. With some time free after the Liverpool tryout of the musical Lady, Be Good on March 29, 1926, and its London opening, he visited his friends Mabel and Robert Schirmer (of the musicpublishing family) in Paris. As Mabel Schirmer tells it: "He had only the original, the walking theme -that first theme, the way An American in Paris starts. And I know that after that first theme, he was a little stuck. He said, 'This is so complete in itself, I don't know where to go next.' " Then, one day, instead of their usual round of sight?seeing or shopping, he asked Mabel to go with him to the Avenue de la Grande Armee, which she thought "not a very chic
street. In those days it had nothing but automobile parts and all the things that you need for automobiles. And so we went, up and down." In fact, Gershwin was looking for taxi horns -the focus of the work's second musical idea.
However, only two years later on a 1928 Parisian sojourn, following the final perfor?mance of Oh, Kay! in London on March 24, did Gershwin take the tone poem again, working on it during a busy social round that included meetings with such figures as Darius Milhaud, Maurice Ravel, Igor Stravinsky, Serge Prokofiev, and Francis Poulenc -and also another visit to the Avenue de la Grande Armee to buy more taxi horns. George and his brother Ira returned to New York on June 20, with a new show for Gertrude Lawrence (Treasure Girl) in the offing, but he finished the piano sketch of An American in Paris on August 1 and the orchestration on November 18. The piece had already been promised to Walter Damrosch, who led the premiere at Carnegie Hall on December 13, 1928, with what was then called the PhilharmonicSymphony Orchestra of New York. (The concert began with Cesar Franck's Symphony in d minor, and concluded with the "Magic Fire Music" from Wagner's Die Walkiire.) Later, Gershwin made his conducting debut with this work, at an outdoor concert in New York's Lewisohn Stadium on August 26, 1929.
Although the composer and writer Deems Taylor devised a detailed narrative of the work for the program of the premiere, the composer's simpler description is refreshingly less cumbersome:
This new piece, really a rhapsodic ballet, is written very freely and is the most modern music I've yet attempted. The opening part will be developed in typical French style, in the manner of Debussy and the Six, though the themes are all original. My purpose is to portray the impression of an American visi
tor in Paris, as he strolls about the city and listens to various street noises and absorbs the French atmosphere.
As in my other orchestral compositions I've not endeavored to represent any definite scenes in this music. The rhapsody is pro?grammatic only in a general impressionistic way, so that the individual listener can read into the music such as his imagination pictures for him.
The opening gay section is followed by a rich blues with a strong rhythmic under?current. Our American friend, perhaps after strolling into a cafe and having a couple of drinks, has succumbed to a spasm of homesickness. The harmony here is both more intense and simple than in the preced?ing pages. This blues rises to a climax, followed by a coda in which the spirit of the music returns to the vivacity and bubbling exuberance of the opening part with its impressions of Paris. Apparently the home?sick American, having left the cafe and reached the open air, has disowned his spell of the blues and once again is an alert spectator of Parisian life. At the conclusion, the street noises and French atmosphere are triumphant.
Despite the denial of representation of definite scenes," Gershwin's twopiano version
of the work includes the following brief out?line, apropos the section preceding the blues: "Sees Girl; Meets Girl; Back to 24 -Strolling Flirtation; Into Cafe; Mix Love Theme with 24; Conversation leading to Slow Blues." Also worthy of note is the degree to which a number of the work's themes are related to the initial "walking theme": for example, its intervals are embedded in the middle of the first phrase of the blues melody. In addition to the taxi horns, the scoring includes a busy percussion group, while a trio of saxophones appears for the first time to accompany the blues section, remaining active for the remainder of the piece. Gershwin's study of orchestration -an art unknown to him until he began work on his 1925 Piano Concerto in F -has achieved considerable sophistication, reflecting study of, perhaps, the festive textures of Debussy's Iberia, as well as the sounds of American jazz.
An American in Paris is scored for 3 flutes (one alternating on piccolo), 2 oboes and English horn, 2 clarinets and bass clar?inet, 3 saxophones (alto, tenor, and bass), 2 bassoons; 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, and tuba; timpani, side drum, bass drum, tomtoms, cymbal, triangle, wood block, 4 taxi horns, bells, xylophone, celesta; and strings.

James Galway was born in Belfast, Northern Ireland. After mastering the penny whistle, he began serious musical training on the flute, winning three top prizes at a local competition at age 12. He continued his studies at London's Royal College of Music and Guildhall School, the Paris Conservatoire and with famed flutist Marcel Moyse. A series of positions with leading British orchestras culminated in his appointment as Principal flute of the Berlin Philharmonic under Herbert von Karajan in 1969. After six years, Mr. Galway decided to establish a solo career, and within a year, had recorded his first four RCA LPs, played more than 120 concerts, and appeared as a
soloist with London's four major orchestras. In 1979, he was awarded the Order of the British Empire by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II for his musical contribution to society.

ichele Ramo,
guitarist, violinist, mandolinist and composer, is one of the most versa?tile musicians per?forming for the public today. He was born in Mazara del Vallo, Italy in 1964. At the age of thirteen, he began his musical studies and earned his Masters Degree in violin with highest honors in 1985 from the Conservatory of Caltanissetta in Italy. In 1982, he recorded for R.A.I., the Italian Radio Network, and toured most of Europe with The National Philharmonic of Tirreno, Le Juness du Meditarrane, The Lyric Symphonic Orchestra of Teatro Massimo and the Sicilian Symphonic Orchestra. He also has toured extensively in Europe as a recitalist. Michele Ramo's advanced studies were with the world's top guitarists, among them Joe Pass, Alirio Diaz, Charley Byrd and Carlos BarbosaLima. He has released five albums under his own MRG Records Label: Tina, a compilation of American show tunes, Neapolitan songs, and Brazilian classics; Essence of Romance, which showcases Michele's "specialty" of ingenious compositions in the Classical and Latin styles; Jealousy, a compila
tion of singular arrangements of popular and original songs; Live at Kerrytown, a oneofakind live performance of the Michele Ramo Latin Jazz Quartet; and Earth and Sun, a duo performance with Canadian percussionist Jamie Rusling.

(Academic excellence dirough the Arts). On February 22, 1993, Michele received the Best Acoustic Guitar Award and was winner of the Jazz Hall of Fame Award, presented by Metropolitan Music Cafe and Record Time during the 1st Annual Jazz Awards of Metropolitan Detroit. More recendy, Michele has appeared in die 1994 Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival and the 1993 and 1994 University Musical Society Ann Arbor May Festivals. In addition, his music has been broadcast live on WDET, WEMU, WCBN, WCAR, and WQRS. Currently, he continues to perform and write.
Tonight's performance marks Michele Ramo's third consecutive May Festival performance.
eidi Hepler, interna?tionally acclaimed as a singer and lyricist, is one of the most versatile vocalists performing today. Her versatility reflects diverse musical influences, from church music to classical music and from Latin American music to pop and jazz. Heidi's crystal clear voice has an incredible range of three and onehalf octaves, and her classical training and professional develop?ment enable her to create an unusual variety of vocal sounds ranging from natural to ethereal. Her creative impulse has led her to press the limits of her classical training, and the result is unique vocal music that is sometimes songfull or percussive, or hauntingly beautiful and always distinctive and unusual. Since her music incorporates vocal improvisation, each performance of Heidi's is a new work of art.
Born in Lansing, Michigan, Heidi began musical studies at the age of nine, sang in a church choir in her youth and studied cello. She received advanced vocal training with Marjorie Gordon in Detroit,
Seth Riggs in Los Angeles, and Sue Seaton in New York. She attended the University of Michigan Opera Theater and the Interlochen National Music School.
Trained as an actress as well as vocalist, Heidi has appeared in opera, light opera and musical comedy. Her credits include La Boheme, Dido and Aeneas, Naughty Marietta, Brigadoon, Carousel, and The Fantastics. As beautiful as she is talented, Heidi captured the Miss Michigan title in 1980. She has toured the United States, Europe, Australia, and Canada. Her repertoire include works in Italian, German, French, Spanish, Hebrew, and Portuguese.
She has appeared as a soloist at Orchestra Hall in Detroit, and performed with the Michigan Opera Theater, the Piccolo Opera Company, the Comic Opera Guild of Ann Arbor, the National Opera Theater, the National Theater Association, the University of Michigan Opera Theater, The Dearborn Symphony Orchestra and the Livonia Symphony Orchestra. Heidi lived and performed in Rome, Italy, from 1990 to
1993, and was a featured artist at the 1991 Rome Jazz Festival.
Heidi has performed live radio broad?casts on WDET, WJR, WQUS, and WEMU. In addition, she was featured with Michele Ramo and the Ramo Latin Jazz Group in
1994, at the University of Michigan Musical Society's May Festival, and the 1994 Montreux Detroit Jazz Festival. She also lends her singular voice to radio and televi?sion advertising commericials for many major corporations.
Heidi Hepler makes her third May Festival appearance in this evenings performance.

L Marcus Belgrave was
mmmk chosen as the recipienl m L oi Arts Midwest's fuzz
JL. mJKtm Wiisln Aii'anl I'm 1991.
This award is presented for outstanding artistry as a performer and educator, life?long achievements in jazz, and continuous contributions to the community. It is this ability to combine performance, education, and commitment to the future of jazz through community programs that makes Marcus Belgrave unique. As a performer heard worldwide at Jazz Festivals and con?certs, and as a featured artist on hundreds of records, Marcus has developed a reputa?tion for knowing exactly what to do with any musical challenge he encounters.
Pianist Geri Allen, bassist Bob Hurst, percussionist and composer Lawrence Williams, and alto sax player Kenny Garrett consider Marcus Belgrave their teacher and mentor. A 1991 New York Times article quot?ed Geri Allen as saying, "I remember one of my early gigs with Marcus. We were playing on the roof of a hotel. I didn't know the music, so I brought charts to play from. Before I could play a note, the wind blew them away. Marcus just put away his trum?pet and played all my parts on the piano."
Marcus is cofounder of the Jazz Studies Program at the Detroit Metro Arts Complex, was an original member of the faculty at the Oakland University Jazz Studies Program and founder of the Jazz Development Workshop in Detroit. He
spent the last two decades in Detroit work?ing to develop aspiring musicians and orga?nizing community programs to perpetuate jazz and its legacy.
Marcus was born into a family of musi?cians in Chester, PA, in 1936. He received his first trumpet at the age of 6 and began to accompany his father to band rehearsals and concerts. By the age of 12, Marcus was reading and transposing music and was already a member of the musician's union. At the age of 18, Marcus Belgrave began his famed collaboration with the legendary Ray Charles Band.
During his distinguished career, Mr. Belgrave has performed and recorded with many legendary musical giants including Ella Fitzgerald, Max Roach, Charles Mingus, Sammy Davis, Jr., Tony Bennett, Eric Dolphy, Aretha Franklin, Roy Brooks, Eddie Jefferson, Wynton Marsalis, McCoy Tyner, and the "Father of BeBop," Dizzy Gillespie.
Marcus has collaborated with drummercomposer Lawrence Williams since 1976. The ensemble featuring original composi?tions and arrangements is currently the focus of his attention. A tour and recording projects are under development. The Marcus Belgrave Songbook, published by
EDMARSYL Publishing Company, with com?positions by Lawrence Williams is now avail?able. Many of the compositions have been recorded by Marcus and Geri Allen as well as other jazz artists.
In New York City, Marcus performs with the Classical Jazz Orchestra under the artis?tic direction of Wynton Marsalis and the musical direction of David Berger thrilling audiences at Lincoln Center. Recent recordings include The Nurturer with Geri Allen, Kirk n' Marcus with the Kirk Lightsey Quintet, and David Murray's latest, Black & Black. Marcus's performances at Bradley's are legendary among New York musicians and devotees. Wynton Marsalis keeps returning there to sit in, expressing in his playing and demeanor the love and admira?tion for Marcus shared by hundreds of other young musicians through the years, and in the hearts of music lovers every?where.
Marcus Belgrave plays jazz that reflects many years of experience--a mature approach with a swing and depth of expres?sion that makes him one of the most impor?tant trumpet stylists of our time.
This evening's performance marks Marcus Belgrave's May Festival debut.

Mahler composed Symphony No. 2 between 1887 and 1894. He led the first performance with the Berlin Philharmonic on December 13, 1895, in Berlin. Richard Strauss led the Berlin Philharmonic in a performance of the first three movements on March 4, 1895. The score calls for solo soprano and mezzosoprano, and chorus with an orchestra of four flutes, four piccolos, four oboes, two English horns, five clarinets, bass clarinet, four bassoons, two contrabassoons, ten horns, eight trumpets, four trombones, tuba, two timpani, bass drum, military drum, triangle, cymbals, high tamtam, low tamtam, rute, glockenspiel, three low bells of indeterminate pitch, two harps, organ, and strings (duration: 80 minutes).
Mahler began work on what would become his Second Symphony in 1888, within a few months after the completion of his First. At this stage, the opening movement bore the title Todtenfeier (Funeral Rite), as well as the designation, Symphonie in c moll I. Satz (Symphony in c minor 1st movement). For five years, diis torso stood alone and there must have seemed little prospect of it ever being added to. When Mahler was called to Hamburg in 1891, to succeed Hans von Bulow as conductor of the Philharmonic, he played die Todtenfeier for Bulow at die piano. The reaction was not die one he expected:
"I play, " Mahler wrote to his friend Josef Foerster. "After a little while I turn around again. Bulow is sitting at the table holding his ears. The whole scene is repeated: I stop, playing, again he urges me to continue .... When I had finished I awaited the verdict
silently. But my only listener remained long at the table silent and motionless. Suddenly he made an energetic gesture of rejection and said: 'If that is music then I do not understand a single thing about music.'
In spite of Bulow's scathing reaction the symphony progressed -two more move?ments were added in the summer of 1893 -but still Mahler could not finish it. Was the reason, as psychoanalyst Theodore Reik suggests in his book, The Haunting Melody, that the Second Symphony became entangled with Mahler's ambivalent feelings about Bulow, and that the work could be completed only when those feelings were resolved
Circumstances suggest as much. Bulow died in February 1894, and it was at a memorial service for him on March of that year, in St. Michael's Church in Hamburg, that the light dawned for Mahler. Before the funeral oration, the boys' choir of the church had sung a chorale setting of Klopstock's Resurrection Ode. That afternoon, Foerster found Mahler in his study.
" opened the door and saw him sitting at his xinitingdesk, his head lowered and his hand holding a pen over some manuscript paper, " Foerster wrote. "I remained standing in the doorway. Mahler turned to me and said: 'Dear friend, I have it!'
I understood. As if illuminated by a mysterious power I answered: 'Auferstehen, ja auferstehen wirst du nach kurzem Schlaf...1
Mahler looked at me with an expres?sion of extreme surprise. I had guessed the secret he had as yet entrusted to no human soul: Klopstock 's poem, which that morning we had heard from the mouths of children, was to be the basis for the closing movement of the Second Symphony. "
One movement remains unaccounted for: the setting of the Wunderhom poem "Urlicht." Mahler was occupied at this time with the setting of Wunderhom texts, and a version of this song for voice and piano dates from the summer of 1893. At what point Mahler decided to incorporate it into the Second Symphony, as a sort of prelude to the finale, is uncertain. In any case, the symphony did not have a fixed overall shape until the finale was complete. Only then could the composer draw together the creative threads he had woven, sometimes uncon?sciously, over the previous six years.
The first movement, according to Mahler, represented die funeral of the Titan of his First Symphony. Its Beethovenian ancestry is obvious -bodi the reminiscence of key and rhydim from the slow movement of the Eroica, and die gradual emergence of a theme ex nihilo, as in the Ninth. Formally,
it is entirely regular, with a long, crowded, but remarkably clear exposition, a brief development, and a neady compressed recapitulation.
After the first movement, the composer specifies a pause of at least five minutes. The hero is buried, but the questions of his life remain: "What now What is this life -and this deadi Do we have an existence beyond it Is all this only a confused dream, or do life and this death have a meaning -And we must answer this question if we are to live on." So wrote die composer in a pro?gram note for a performance of the sym?phony in Berlin in 1901.
The three succeeding movements, Mahler explains, are intermezzos: the "Andante Moderato," "a happy moment from die life of his beloved departed one, and a sad recollection of his lost youth and innocence"; die Scherzo, a fit of depression,
in which "the world and life become for him a disorderly apparition" (this is an orchestral version of the Wunderhorn song about St. Anthony's sermon to die fish); and in "Urlicht," "the moving voice of naive faith sounds in his ear."
The finale, says Mahler, takes up die questions left unanswered in die first move?ment, proposing die final answer: resurrec?tion. All die sounds of nature and humanity are here, to be touched by the transfiguring hand of die Creator Spiritus. Mahler may have been caught up in endiusiasm as he wrote his program note, but so, inevitably, is the listener:
"There appears the glory of God! A wonder?ful gentle light permeates us to our very heart -all is quiet and blissful! -And behold: there is no judgment -There is no punishment and no reward! An almighty feeling of love illuminates us with blessed knowing and being!"

Fourth Movement
from Des Knaben Wunderhorn Brentano and Arnim
O Roschen rot,
Der Mensch liegt in grosster Not! Der Mensch liegt in grosster Pein! Lieber mocht' ich im Himmel sein.
Da kam ich auf einem breiten Weg Da kam ein Engelein und wollt'
mich abweisen.
Ach nein! Ich liess mich nicht abweisen. Ich bin von Gott und will wieder zu Gott. Der liebe Gott wird mir ein Lichtchen geben, Wird leuchten mir bis in das ewig selig Leben!
Fifth Movement
"Resurrection Ode" Klopstock
Aufersteh'n, ja aufersteh'n wirst du,
mein Staub, nach kurzer Ruh!
Unsterblich leben Wird der dich rief dir geben.
Wieder aufzubluhn wirst du gesat!
Der Herr der Ernte geht und sammelt
Garben Uns ein, die starben.
O glaube, mein Herz es geht dir nichts verloren!
Dein ist, dein, ja dein, was du ersehnst!
Dein was du geliebt, was du gestritten!
O glaube: du warst nicht umsonst geboren!
Hast nich umsonst gelebt, gelitten!
Was enstanden ist, das muss vergehen!
Was vergangen, aufersteh'n!
Hor auf zu beben! Bereite dich zu leben!
O Schmerz, du Alldurchdringer! Dir bin ich entrungen. O Tod, du Allbezwinger! Nun bist du bezwungen.
0 rosebud red,
Mankind lies in greatest need! Mankind lies in greatest woe!
1 would rather be in heaven.
Then I came upon a broad path
There came an angel who tried to turn me
But no! I did not let him turn me back.
I am from God and will return to God.
The dear Lord will give me a little light,
Will light my way to eternal, blessed life!
Rise again, yes, thou shalt rise again,
my dust, after a short rest!
Immortal life will
He give who called thee.
Thou wast sown to bloom again!
The Lord of the harvest goes and gathers
in the sheaves: gathers us, who have died.
O believe, my heart, nothing shall be
lost to thee! Thine it is, thine, yes thine,
what thou hast longed for! Thine what thou hast loved,
what thou hast striven for! O believe: thou wast not born in vain! Thou has not lived, suffered, in vain! What has arisen must pass, What has gone must arise! Cease to tremble! Prepare thyself to live!
O everpresent suffering, I have escaped thee! O allconquering Death, now art thou conquered!
Conductor Jerzy Semkow has gained an interna?tional reputation through his appearances with the world's leading orchestras and opera companies. His conduct?ing posts have included tenures as Music Director of the Saint Louis Symphony, as Principal Conductor of the Royal Danish Opera and the Royal Danish Orchestra in Copenhagen, as Music Advisor and Principal Conductor of the Rochester Philharmonic, as Music Director of the Orchestra of RadioTelevisione Italiana (RAJ) in Rome, and as Artistic Director of the National Opera in Warsaw.
Maestro Semkow has conducted the Berlin Philharmonic, the Orchestre National de France, the Orchestre de Paris, and the National Orchestra of Belgium, as
well as the principal orchestras of London, Vienna, Stockholm, Madrid, Frankfurt, Monte Carlo, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Milan, Rome, Florence and Jerusalem, among other music centers. In the United States, he has led the New York Philharmonic, the National Symphony of Washington, DC, the Chicago, Dallas, and Pittsburgh symphony orchestras, the Cleveland Orchestra, and the symphonies of Boston, Detroit, Atlanta, Baltimore, Cincinnati, Houston and others.
As an operatic conductor, Maestro Semkow has been equally successful. His engagements have included productions at the Teatro alia Scala in Milan, the Royal Opera House at Covent Garden, the Grand Theatre of Geneva, the Maggio Musicale in Florence, La Fenice in Venice, the Teatro del Opera of Rome and the AixenProvence Festival with the Orchestre de Paris, where he conducted all of Mozart's later operas. He also conducted a performance of Haydn's Creation at the Vatican in the pres?ence of the Pope, telecast by Eurovision throughout Europe.
Maestro Semkow's discography includes the first complete original version

Music Director since September 1990, worldrenowned conductor Neeme Jarvi is one of today's most recorded and respected conductors. With the DSO, Mr. Jarvi has released eight discs to date for Chandos Records for distribution on six continents. Their first disc, containing American music, was critically acclaimed and appeared on the Billboard magazine Top Classical Albums chart for 14 weeks. Neeme Jarvi's historic 100th release for Chandos was also the DSO's second in the American Series. Receiving tremendous exposure and critical acclaim,
this disc also climbed the Billboard charts, and Mr. Jarvi and the DSO were featured on the cover of numerous international record magazines, including Gramophone, CD Review, Fanfare, Luister, and Diapason.
Their January 1993 release contains works by two of this century's most important AfricanAmerican composers, William Grant Still and Duke Ellington, and was named "Best of the Month" by Stereo Review magazine in July 1993.

, he University Musical I Society Choral Union,
Thomas Sheets, con?ductor, has performed throughout its 116year history with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors.
In recent years, the chorus has sung under the direction of Kurt Masur, Eugene Ormandy, Robert Shaw, Neeme Jarvi, Igor Stravinsky, Andre Previn, Michael TilsonThomas, Seiji Ozawa and David Zinman in performances with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, and other noted ensembles.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the University Choral Union remains best known for its annual performances of Handel's Messiah each December. Last year, the Choral Union has further enriched that tradition through its appointment as resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). In addition, in January, 1994 the Choral Union collaborated with Maestro Jarvi and die DSO in the chorus' first major commercial record?ing, Tchaikovsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records last fall. This season, the ensemble joined forces once again with the DSO for subscription performances of Ravel's complete ballet music from Dapknis and Chloe. This spring, in additon to collab?orating with the DSO under the direction of Jerzy Semkow in performances of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, the Choral Union per?formed Britten's War Requiem with the Toledo Symphony.
The long choral tradition of die University Musical Society reaches back to 1879, when a group of local church choir members and other interested singers came together to sing choruses from Handel's Messiah, an event that signaled die birdi of the University Musical Society. Participation
in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of towns?people, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion -a love of the choral art.
An accomplished and versatile conductor whose achievements in community chorus leadership, academic instruction, and opera place him in the forefront of all areas of choral artistry, Thomas Sheets was appointed Music Director of the University Musical Society Choral Union in 1993. He is the tenth conductor to hold this position in the ensemble's 116year history.
Before moving to Ann Arbor, Mr. Sheets was Associate Conductor of two prominent Southern California choruses, the William Hall Chorale and the Master Chorale of Orange County, both conducted by his mentor, the distinguished choral conductor William Hall. During that time, he assisted in preparing all the choralorchestral works in the current repertoire, in some instances for performances led by Robert Shaw, Jorge Mester, Joann Faletta, and Michael TilsonThomas. In 1988, he served as chorusmaster for Long Beach Opera's highlyacclaimed American premiere of Szymanowski's King Roger, where his efforts on behalf of the chorus received accolades from critics on four continents. He was engaged in the same role in 1992 for that company's avantgarde staging of Simon Boccanegra, where the chorus again received singular plaudits.
Thomas Sheets received the degree Doctor of Musical Arts from die University of Eichenberger; he has also studied voice with Michael Sells, Jonathan Mack, and Thomas Cleveland. Dr. Sheets has held appointments as Director of Choral Activities at several colleges and universities, and is a frequent conference leader and clinician. His editions of choral music are published by AugsburgFortess, and he is die author of articles on choral music performance.

Classical Action
n Saturday afternoon,

M A Dancer Restaurant in
H Ann Arbor, flutist James H m Galway performs a bene
k m fit concert for Classical
Action: Performing Arts Against AIDS, who will in turn donate a major portion of the net proceeds to the HIVAIDS Resource Center which provides HIVrelated ser?vices including direct care, prevention, and out?reach activities to a fourcountry area including Washtenaw County.
It was last fall when Mr. Galway, a committed supporter of Classical Action and a special friend of the University Musical Society, offered to give a benefit performance for Classical Action in Ann Arbor the day following his evening performance with the MET Orchestra. Classical Action is a notforprofit organization which draws upon the talents, resources, and generosity of the perform?ing arts community to raise vitally needed funds for AIDSrelated services across the United States. Funds are raised through house concerts, recording and merchandising projects, individual donations, and foundation and corporate support.
The offer from Mr.
Galway to give a benefit concert in Ann Arbor gave the UMS Board of Directors and staff the opportunity to reflect on the devastating toll AIDS has taken in the performing arts. We thought about the musicians who once appeared on Hill Auditorium's stage and who are no longer with us because of AIDS. We remembered dancers, choreographers, composers, conductors, designers, producers, directors, and others whom we had come to know, whose artistry we had experienced, whose names are in our program books, and whose lives were cut short because of AIDS. This reflection brought us to the conclu?sion that we must do something to address this critical problem.
A planning committee comprised of repre
sentatives of local churches; health organizations; gay, lesbian, and bisexual advocacy groups; fami?lies touched by AIDS; the HIVAIDS Resource Center; the University Musical Society; and other community groups and individuals has worked together since December with the New York office of Classical Action to plan the benefit con?cert. We have been overwhelmed by the generos?ity of the many individuals, organizations, and companies in our community who have con?tributed time, money, equipment, and services to assure the success of the benefit.
As a result of the our community's effort to fight AIDS through the Galway concert, Ann Arbor now joins New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Buffalo, Boston, and a growing list of other cities throughout the U.S. in hosting Classical Action events.
The planning committee wishes to express its deep appreciation to the following individuals and groups for their special contributions to the benefit:
James Galway for his generous offer and the gift of his performance;
Jose Feghali for accompanying Mr. Galway;
Charles Hamlen and the staff of Classical Action for their guidance and support;
Patrick Yankee and the staff of the HIVAIDS Resource Center for their many contributions;
Dan Huntsbarger and the staff of the Gandy Dancer for making the restaurant available and for their extraordinary support and cooperation;
Don and Gerry Lewis of Action Rental and Jim Lillie of Aerial Sound for helping us convert restaurant space to recital space;
Mike Savitski for his elegant invitation design, and White Pine Printers for their labor in producing it;
Steinway & Sons for the piano;
Cherie Rehkopf of Fine Flowers for the floral art;
Members of the Honorary Committee for their leadership and support.

Highlights from the 1995 Winter Season
Photos by David Smith
? Pianist Garrick Ohlsson performs to a sold out audience in Rackham Auditorium as part of his sixinstallment cycle The Complete Solo Piano Music of Frederic Chopin. With his impassioned interpretations of this monumental body of piano literature, Ohlsson established an intimate relationship with Ann Arbor audiences which he will continue into the 19951996 season.
T Maestro Christoph von Dohnanyi leads The Cleveland Orchestra and pianist Emanuel Ax in the second of three concerts of the Society Bank Cleveland Orchestra Weekend. Two orchestra concerts and an afternoon of chamber music were part of a special residency that included extensive work with the University of Michigan School of Music.
? Paul Yancich of The Cleveland Orchestra demonstrates timpani techniques to Greg White during a percussion master class as part of the Orchestra's residency activities at the University of Michigan School of Music during the Society Bank Cleveland Orchestra Weekend. In all, members of the orchestra held fourteen master classes for students and faculty.
? For two nights, the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company's full evening work StillHere captivated near capacity audiences in the Power Center. The multimedia work is a meditation on questions of survival and mortality utilizing video and movements collected from survival workshops Jones held in eleven cities across the country with individuals living with lifethreatening illnesses
? In conjunction with performances of StillHere, Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company Rehearsal Director Andrea Woods (foreground) conducts a master class at the University of Michigan School of Dance.
? Following their Ann Arbor premiere of Osvaldo Golijov's The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac The Blind, violinists William Preucil and Peter Salafe, cellist Paul Katz, clarinetist Giora Feidman, Golijov, and violist James Dunham, were kept standing by an enthusiastic crowd. The piece, which was cocommissioned by the University Musical Society, was written specifically for Feidman to perform with the Cleveland Quartet, who were making their final Ann Arbor performance.
In an effort to help reduce distracting noises and enhance the concertgoing experience, the WarnerLambert Company is providing compli?mentary Halls MenthoLyptus Cough Suppressant Tablets to patrons attending University Musical Society concerts. The tablets may be found in specially marked dispensers located in the lobbies.
Thanks to Ford Motor Company for the use of a 1995 Lincoln Town Car to provide transportation for visiting artists.

with the University Musical Society
our years ago, UMS began publishing expanded program books that included advertising and detailed information about UMS programs and services. As a result, advertising revenue now pays for all printing and design costs.
UMS advertisers have written to tell us how much they appreciate advertising in the UMS pro?gram books to reach you, our worldclass audience. We hope that you will patronize the businesses who advertise with UMS and tell them that you saw their ad in the UMS program book so that we cam continue to bring you the program notes, artists' biographies, and general information that illuminate each UMS presentation. For information about how your business can become a UMS advertiser, call (313) 7646199.
UMS Ushers
Absolute chaos. That is what would ensue without ushers to help concertgoers find their seats at UMS performances. Ushers serve the essential function in assisting patrons with seating and distributing program books. With their help, concerts begin peacefully and pleasantly.
The UMS Usher Corps comprises 275 individuals who volunteer their time to make concertgoing easier. Music lovers from the community and the university constitute this valued group. The allvolunteer group attends an orientation and training session each fall. Ushers are responsible for working at every UMS performance in a specific hall (Hill, Power, or Rackham) for the entire concert season.
The ushers must enjoy their work, because 85 of them return to volunteer each year. In fact some ushers have served for 30 years or longer. Bravi Ushers!
Volunteers & Interns
Volunteers are always welcome and needed to assist the UMS staff with many projects and events during the concert season. Projects include helping with mailings, ushering for the Philips Educational Presentations, staffing the Information Table in the lobbies of concert halls, distributing publicity materials, assisting with the Youth Program by compiling educational materials for teachers, greeting and escorting students to seats at performances, and serving as goodwill representatives for UMS as a whole.
If you would like to become part of the University Musical Society volunteer corps, please call (313) 7471175 or pick up a volunteer applica?tion form from the Information Table in the lobby. Internships with the University Musical Society provide experience in performing arts management, marketing, journalism, publicity, and promotion. Semester and yearlong internships are available in many aspects of the University Musical Society's operations. Those interested in serving as a UMS Intern should call (313) 7646199 for more infor?mation. We look forward to hearing from you!
Youth Program
Thousands of school children annually attend UMS concerts as part of the UMS Youth Program, which began in the 19891990 season with special onehour performances for local fourth graders of Puccini's La Bohemehy the New York City Opera National Company.
Now in its sixth year under the Education Department, the UMS Youth Program continues to expand, with performances by the Martha Graham Dance Company for middle and high school students, two fourthgrade opera performances, inschool workshops with the Uptown String Quartet, and Dr. Jester Hairston, as well as discounted tickets to nearly every concert in the UMS season.
As part of the Martha Graham Dance Company's Ann Arbor residency and the fourday multidisciplinary program entitled "In The American Grain: The Martha Graham Centenary Festival," the Graham Company presented a special youth program to middle and high school students, "A Chance to Dance with Graham" workshop, and a family perfor?mance.
On Friday, November 18, 1994, area high school students experienced a fulllength performance of the Shaw Festival's productions of Arms and the Man.
On Friday, March 3, 1995, 2700 fourthgraders visited the Power Center for abbreviated onehour performances of Rossini's The Barber of Seville. These performances allowed children to experience opera that is fullystaged and fullycostumed with the same orchestra and singers that appeared in the he fulllength performances.
Discounted tickets are also available for UMS concerts as part of the Youth Program to encourage students to attend concerts with their teachers as a part of the regular curriculum. Parents and teachers are encouraged to organize student groups to attend any UMS events, and the UMS Youth Program Coordinator w ill work with you to personalize the students' concert experience, which often includes meeting the artists after the performance. Many teachers have used UMS performances to enhance their classroom curriculums.
The UMS Youth Program has been widely praised for its innovative programs and continued success in bringing students to the performing ails at affordable prices. To learn more about how you can take advantage of the various programs offered, call Education Coordinator Helen Siedel at 313.936.0430.
