Season: 1995-1996 Fall
University Of Michigan, Ann Arbor

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor
1995-1996 Fall Season
Dear UMS Patrons
Thank you very much for attending this event and for supporting the work of the University Musical Society. By the time this 199596 season comes to a close next spring, the UMS will have brought to the community per?formances featuring many of the world's finest artists and ensembles. In addition, the UMS will have sponsored more than 100 educational events aimed at enhancing the community's understand?ing and appreciation of the performing arts. Your support makes all of this possible, and we are grateful to you.
My colleagues throughout the country are continually amazed at how a Midwest community of 110,000 can support the number and quality of performances that the UMS brings to Ann Arbor. They want to know how we do it, and I'm proud to tell them. Here's what I say:
O First, and most important, the people in Ann Arbor and the surrounding region provide great support for what we do by attending events in large numbers and by providing generous financial support through gifts to the UMS. And, according to our artists, they are among the most informed, engaged and appreciative audiences in the country.
O It has been the tradition of the University Musical Society since its founding in 1879 to bring the greatest artists in the world to Ann Arbor, and that tradition continues today. Our patrons expect the best, and that's what we seek to offer them.
O Our special relationship with one of the country's leading educational institutions, the University of Michigan, has allowed us to maintain a level of independence which, in turn, affords us the ability to be creative, bold and entrepreneurial in bringing the best to Ann Arbor. While the UMS is proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan and is housed on the Ann Arbor campus, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization which supports itself from ticket sales, other earned income, grants, and contributions.
O The quality of our concert halls means that artists love to perform here and are eager to accept return engagements. Where else in the U.S. can Cecilia Bartoli perform a recital before 4,300 people and know that her pianissimos can be heard unamplified by everyone
O Our talented, diverse, and dedicated Board of Directors drawn from both the University and the regional community provides outstanding leadership for the UMS. The 200-voice UMS Choral Union, 55-member Advisory Committee, 275-member usher corps, and hundreds of other volunteers and interns contribute thousands of hours to the UMS each year and provide critical services that we could not afford otherwise.
O Finally, I've got a wonderful group of hard-working staff colleagues who love the Musical Society and love their work. Bringing the best to you brings out the best in them.
Thanks for coming, and let me hear from you if you have any suggestions, complaints, etc. Look for me in the lobby or give me a call at 313.747.1174.

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.
Children We welcome children, but very young chil?dren can be disruptive to a performance. Children should be able to sit quietly in their own seats through?out a performance. Children unable to do so, along widi 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 expec?tant 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 pro?gram 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 117th season, the University Musical Society ranks as one of the oldest and most highly-regarded 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 lime 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 ten-concert series in Hill Auditorium. Through the Chamber Arts Series, Choral Union Series, Jazz Directions, World Tour, and Moving Truths Series, the Musical Society now hosts over 60 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 117 years with the support of a generous musicand arts-loving 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 Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, 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.
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 strength?ened through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, programs for young people, artists' residencies such as the Martha Graham Centenary Festival and the Society Bank Cleveland Orchestra Weekend, and through other collaborative 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, not-for-profit organization, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
UMS Choral Union
Thomas Sheets, conductor
The University Musical Society Choral Union has performed throughout its 117-year history with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors.
In recent years, the chorus has sung under the direction of Neemejarvi, Kurt Masur, Eugene Ormandy, Robert Shaw, Igor Stravinsky, Andre Previn, Michael Tilson-Thomas, Seiji Ozawa, Robert Spano and David Zinman in performances with the Detroit Smphony Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra of St. Luke's and other noted ensembles.
Based in Ann Arbor, under the aegis of the University Musical Society of the University of Michigan, the 180-voice Choral Union remains best known for its annual performances of Handel's Messiah each December. Two years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition through its appointment as resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In January 1994 the Choral Union collaborated with Maestro Jarvi and the DSO in the chorus' first major commercial recording, Tchaikowsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records in October of that year. This past season, the ensemble joined forces with the DSO for sub?scription performances of Ravel's Daphnis el Chloe and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection). In 1995, the Choral Union established an artistic associ?ation with the Toledo Symphony, inaugurating the new partnership with a performance of Britten's War Requiem under the baton of Maestro Andrew Massey.
The long choral tradition of the 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 the birth of the University Musical Society. Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion a love of the choral art
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 82-year history.
Former U-M 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 Angell 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 1 g86.
Currendy, Hill Auditorium is part of the U-M'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.
Rackham Auditorium
For over 50 years, this intimate and unique con?cert hall has been the setting for hundreds of world-acclaimed chamber music ensembles pre?sented by the University Musical Society. Before 1941, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were few and irregular. That changed dramatically, however, when the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies came into being through the generosity of Horace H. and Mary A. Rackham.
The Rackham Building's semi-circular auditorium, with its intimacy, beauty, and fine acoustics, was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. The Musical Society realized this potential and pre?sented its first Chamber Music Festival in 1941, the first organized event of its kind in Ann Arbor. The present-day Chamber Arts Series was launched in 1963. The Rackhams' gift of $14.2 million in 1933 is held as one of the most ambitious and liberal gifts ever given to higher education. The luxurious and comfortably appointed i,i2g-seat auditorium was designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci.
POWER CENTER far the Performing Arts
The dramatic mirrored glass that fronts the Power Center seems to anticipate what awaits the concertgoer inside. The Power Center's dedication occurred with the world premiere of Truman Capote's The Grass Harp in 1971. Since then, the Center has been host to hundreds of prestigious names in theater, dance, and music, including the University Musical Society's first Power Center presentation--Marcel Marceau.
The fall of 1991 marked the twentieth anniver?sary of the Power Center. The Power Family-Eugene B. Power, a former regent of the University of Michigan, his wife Sadye, and their son Philip-contributed $4 million toward the building of the theater and its subsequent improvements. The Center has seating for 1,380 in the auditorium, as well as rehearsal spaces, dressing rooms, costume and scenery shops, and an orchestra pit.
UMS hosted its annual week-long theater resi?dency in the Power Center, welcoming the esteemed Shaw Festival of Canada, November 15-20, 1994. In October 1994, UMS, the Martha Graham Dance Company, and ten institutional partners hosted
"In the American Grain: The Martha Graham Centenary Festival" commemorating the 100th anniversary of Martha Graham's birth. The Power Center was the site of open rehearsals, exhibits, workshops, and performances, including the 50th anniversary celebration of the premiere of the Martha GrahamAaron Copland collaboration Appalachian Spring (Ballet for Martha).
The Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened its doors January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaudeville, movie palace era. The gracious facade and beautiful interior were then, as now, a marvel practi?cally unrivaled in Michigan. As was the custom of the day, the Theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ, acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country.
Over the years, the Theater has undergone many changes. "Talkies" replaced silent films just one year after the Theater opened, and vaudeville soon disap?peared from die stage. As Theater attendance dwindled in the '50s, both the interior and exterior of the building were remodeled in an architecturally inappropriate style.
Through the '60s and '70s the 1800-seat theater struggled against changes in the film industry and audiences until the non-profit Michigan Theater Found?ation stepped in to operate the failing movie house in 1979
After a partial renovation which returned much of its prior glory, the Theater has become Ann Arbor's home of quality cinema as well as a popular venue for the performing arts. The Michigan Theater is also the home of the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In June of 1950, Edward Cardinal Mooney appointed Father Leon Kennedy pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Sunday Masses were first celebrated at Pittsfield School until the first building was ready on Easter Sunday, 1951. The parish num?bered 248 families. Ground was broken in 1967 to build a permanent church building, and on March 19, 1969, John Cardinal Dearden dedicated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. In June of 1987, Father Charles E. Irvin was appointed pastor.
Today, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church is composed of 2,800 families. The present church seats 800 people and has ample free parking. Since 1987 Janelle O'Malley has served as Music Director of St. Francis. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision into the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building. A splendid 3 manual "mechanical action" instrument of 34 stops and 45 ranks was built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec. The 1994 Letourneau Organ (Opus 38) was dedicated in December of 1994.
Burton Memorial Tower
A favorite campus and Ann Arbor landmark, Burton Memorial Tower is the familiar mail?ing address and box office location for UMS concertgoers.
In a ig2i commencement address, University president Marion LeRoy Burton suggested that a bell tower, tall enough to be seen for miles, be built in the center of campus to represent the idealism and loyalty of U-M alumni. Burton served as president of the University and as a Musical Society trustee from ig2o until his death in 1925.
In 1935 Charles M. Baird, the University's first athletic director, donated $70,000 for a carillon and clock to be installed in a tower dedicated to the memory of President Burton. Several organizations, including the Musical Society, undertook the task of procuring funds, and nearly 1,500 individuals and organizations made contributions. The gift of the UMS totalled $60,000.
Designed by Albert Kahn, Burton Memorial Tower was completed in 1940, at which time the University Musical Society took residence of the first floor and basement.
A renovation project headed by local builder Joe O'Neal began in the summer of 1991. As a result, the UMS now has refurbished offices on three floors of the tower, complete with updated heating, air conditioning, storage, lighting, and wiring. Over 230 individuals and businesses donated labor, materials, and funds to this project.
The remaining floors of Burton Tower are arranged as classrooms and offices used by the School of Music, with the top reserved for the Charles Baird Carillon. During the academic year, visitors may observe the carillon chamber and enjoy a live per?formance from noon to 12:30 p.m. weekdays when classes are in session and most Saturdays from 1 o: 15 to 10:45 am-

B he term flamenco
1 describes a style of folk music that originated in southern Spain. As used today, it refers to the music and dances of the fli Spanish Gypsies. In reality, flamenco was and continues to be influenced by numerous cultures. Many of the song forms are attributed to the people who lived in the Iberian peninsula long before the arrival of the Gypsies in Europe in the four?teenth century and can be traced back as far as the first century A.D.
Several characteristics of modern flamenco survive from this early period. Among them are the use of castanets, the bata de cola (dress with a long tail), the rhythms and structure of the music, and the jaleo-clapping and shouts of encouragement that flamenco artists use to motivate their companions. Later contributions from other cultures are seen in musical styles from Africa and South America which became incorporated into the flamenco repertoire.
The first musical instrument that comes to mind when talking about flamenco, or Spain, is the guitar. The guitar was brought to Spain by the Moors in a much older form and underwent considerable development in the hands of Spanish luthiers during the nineteenth century. In the early period, it was used in flamenco primarily to accompany singers and dancers and did not become an instrument for solo performances until the turn of this century.
The revolution in the role of the flamenco guitar began with Rafael Marin of Seville. He is credited with taking the flamenco guitar beyond its function as background accompa?niment and developing it as an instrument for solo performances. Marin, originally a flamenco guitarist, was also trained in classical technique. Instead of observing ancient rules such as playing mainly with the thumb and ligrulos (slurs), he also introduced
arpeggios, scales, and four-note tremolos. Rafael Marin spent some time in Madrid, and it was there that the famous Ramon Montoya used to listen to his playing.
Ramon Montoya was born near Toledo and belonged to the musical traditions of the Gypsies of Madrid, Barcelona, and Valencia, a style differing from Andalusian flamenco". He spent some time in Seville where he learned traditional flamenco, but he was less interested in the rhythms than harmony and melody. Rafael Mann's innova?tions suited him perfectly, and he developed a delicate but sonorous style, with more arpeggios to ligados. His playing is said to have overflowed with notes.
Nino Ricardo was another flamenco guitarist who developed during this period and earned the same high esteem given to Ramon Montoya. Not only was Ricardo's technique phenomenal, but his original musical innovations tested the boundaries of the flamenco tradition. Where Ramon Montoya's style was soft and melodic, Nino Ricardo employed rapid technique, exploiting exciting and dynamic rhythms to produce sharp and almost harsh interpretations.
Ramon Montoya and Nino Ricardo profoundly influenced another younger guitarist named Agustin Castelion but better known as Sabicas. Building upon the Montoya and Ricardo traditions, Sabicas brought the flamenco guitar out of Spain and delighted audiences throughout the world with dazzling technique and unequaled virtuosity. Sabicas can be credited with raising the flamenco guitar artistry begun by Rafael Marin to its zenith and leaving it in a state of near-perfection that challenges today's artist. Today, that challenge is being met by Paco de Lucia.
Paco de Lucia has taken flamenco in new directions with fresh ideas coming from American jazz, Latin American music, and other popular styles. His creations continue to expand the definition of flamenco, drawing
new audiences of devotees. Musical dialogues with artists from a variety of genres are creating a new direction for flamenco that will extend well into the twenty-first century. Aficionados wait in anticipation for the fresh musical ideas being developed by this phenomenal technician and creative genius. It will be fascinating to see to what new heights Paco de Lucia can take the flamenco guitar.
Note by Robero Rics
Paco de Lucia was born Francisco Sanchez Gomez in Algeciras, a city in the province of Cadiz, in the Southern-most tip of Spain on December 21, 1947. His stage name is an homage to his mother Lucia Gomez.
His father, Antonio Sanchez, a day laborer, played guitar at night as a way to supplement his income. His father, his elder brother Ramon de Algeciras, and flamenco master Nino Ricardo were Paco de Lucia's main influences. His first performance was on Radio Algeciras in 1958. The brothers Ramon, Pepe (a singer), and Paco now comprise half of the Paco de Lucia Sextet.
The training ground for a flamenco guitarist, de Lucia once said, "is the music around you, made by people you see, the people you make music with. You learn it from your family, from your friends, in la jeurga (the party) drinking. And then you work on technique. Guitarists do need to study. And as it is with any music, the great ones will spend some time working with the young players who show special talent. You must understand that a Gypsy's life is a life of anarchy. That is a reason why the way of flamenco music is a way without discipline as you know it. We don't try to organize
things with our minds, we don't go to school to find out. We just live. . . music is every?where in our lives."
The origins of the word "flamenco" are in dispute. Some argue that the word refers to the Flemish people who arrived in Spain in the sixteenth century and once meant simply "foreigner" or non-Spanish. Others suggest that the word derives from the Arabic phrase "felah inengu," meaning "peasant in flight."
What is indisputable is that flamenco is a blend of the many cultures -Gypsy, Muslim, Jewish -that at one time settled in Andalusia, in Southern Spain. Their influ?ences can be heard distinctively in the melisma of the singer, the rhythms, the slowly curling harmonic lines of the guitars.
Flamenco is, like the blues to which it is often compared, the music of a poor, disen?franchised minority. But it is also a complex art form that combines guitar playing, singing and dancing, setting off layers of powerful rhythms and emotions. Paco de Lucia was able to grasp these nuances at a very early age.
In 1958, at age eleven, de Lucia made his first public appearance and a year later he was awarded a special prize in the Jerez flamenco competition. At fourteen, he began touring with the flamenco troupe of dancer Jose Greco. In was while on tour with Greco in the United States that de
Lucia met the great Sabicas, the influential guitarist whose name became synonymous with flamenco in the United States. Sabicas encouraged him to pursue a more personal style. De Lucia would follow this advice, as was notable a few years later in his 1970 debut at Carnegie Hall.
"In flamenco, the guitarist first and fore?most, must not get in the way of the singer," de Lucia once explained. 'There is a dialogue going on. The cantaor (singer) sings the words. There are no songs per se in flamenco, just short lyrics, so the guitarist follows the call of the singer. Part of the tradition in flamenco is not playing too hard or too much. You need to support the singer, help him."
Back in Spain, de Lucia joined Festival Flamenco Gitano, an annual flamenco showcase tour that lasted for seven years. He recorded his first album in 1965, at the age of eigh?teen. With La Fabulosa Guitarra de Paco de Lucia, released in 1967, de Lucia began to distance himself from the influence of masters such as Ricardo and Mario Escudero and by the time of Fantasia Flamenco., recorded in 1969, he had defined his own style. His superb technique was displayed in well-structured pieces that departed from the flamenco tradition of theme and variations.
In 1968, he met Camaron de la Isla, one of the premier flamenco singers. Their association has been chronicled on more than ten records. In fact, their album Potro de Rabia y Miel (1991), their first since 1984, was the last release by Camaron de la Isla, who died in 1992.
De Lucfa's new style became more evident in El Duende Flamenco (1972), Fuente Y Caudal (1973) and Almoraima (1976) which some consider a masterpiece. These were followed by Paco de Lucia Interprela a Manuel de Falla (1980), a superb tribute to the classical composer who was an admirer of flamenco music.
De Lucia has been criticized by flamenco
die hards for his forays into other styles (his sextet includes bass, drums and saxophone) and his high profile collaborations, especially with jazz musicians, most notably with pianist Chick Corea and fellow guitarists John McLaughlin, Larry Coryell and Al DiMeola. But the often dazzling results of these col?laborations have been documented in several releases including the guitar trio albums Castro Marin (1979), Passion, Grace and Fire (1982) and Friday Night in San Francisco (1981). He has also recorded soundtracks for films such as Carlos Saura's Carmen, Borau's La Sabina, and the ballet Los Tarantos, presented at Madrid's prestigious Teatro de la Zarzuela in 1986.
As if to make a point, de Lucia returned to pure flamenco with a vengeance in the spectacular Siroco (1987), a brilliant summa?tion of his style, and then zigzagged back towards fusion with Zyryab (1990), which featured his sextet augmented by pianist Chick Corea. De Lucia shrugs off the com?plaints or the concerns that he might lose his roots or betray the essence of flamenco. "I have never lost my roots in my music, because I would lose myself," he once said. "What I have tried to do is have one hand holding onto tradition and the other scratching, digging in other places trying to find new things I can bring to flamenco. 'There was a time when I was concerned about losing myself," he added, "but not now. I've realized that, even if I wanted, I couldn't do anything else. I am a flamenco guitarist. If I tried to play anything else it would still sound like flamenco."
This evenings performance marks Mr. de Lucia's debut appearance under UMS auspices.
Born in Algeciras, Spain, guitarist Ramon de Algeciras is the elder brother of Paco de Lucia and was his first guitar teacher. Ramon began to study and play the guitar at the age of fifteen under his father, Don Antonio Sanchez Pecino, who was a guitarist and composer for many different flamenco artists, including Camaron de la Isla.
At 18, Ramon left home for the first time as a professional guitarist, joining thejuanito Valderrama Company. While with this company, he played for the leading figures of the flamenco world: Juanito Mairena, Pepe Marchena, La Nina de los Peines, Antonio Mairena, Fosforito, Camaron de La Isla, and many others.
During this time, Paco de Lucia began to tour extensively throughout Spain. It soon became evident that Paco would need a second guitarist with prestige and musical solvency. Nobody doubted that Ramon was the right man. From that moment on, Ramon has never left Paco's side, either in public performances or in recording sessions, in which he plays a most vital part.
Born in Algeciras, Spain, Paco de Lucia's younger brother, Pepe de Lucia is considered to be one the finest flamenco singers of today.
Pepe began his professional career as a boy when, under the guidance of his father, Don Antonio Sanchez Pecino, he formed a Duo with Paco, called "Las Chiquitos de Algeciras." From there he went on to win first prize in the National Flamenco Competition in Jerez de la Frontera. Today, he is in great demand as a composer for many Spanish artists.
Pepe, like his father before him, is a great defender of the art of flamenco and its new forms. He is an explorer of both modern and traditional values and has an extensive discography, including gold records. Some of his most notable works are "Caminando" "La Media Luna," "Que Trisleza Amarte Tanto"
and "Poeta en Nueva York." Pepe collaborat?ed widi some of the world's greatest singers on this last recording.
Guitarist Juan Manuel Canizares was born in Barcelona in ig66. He began to study the flamenco guitar at the age of seven and at the same time studied harmony and the classical guitar at the Conservatory of Music in Barcelona. In 1982, at the age of sixteen, he won the first prize in the National Guitar Competition in Jerez de la Frontera. This is one of the most prestigious competitions for flamenco art.
Since then, Mr. Canizares has been constandy working, playing, and recording worldwide with very well known artists of different musical styles: Paco de Lucia, Camaron de la Isla, Rociojurado, Pepe de Lucia, Paco Cepera, Chiquete, Maria Jimenez, Los Marismenos; jazz artists such as Michael Brecker, Al Di Meola, Peter Erskine and Steve Khan; and pop artists El Ultimo de la Fila, Pata Negra, Joan Manuel Serrat, La Fura dels Baus, Rosario Flores, Marc Almond, John Paul Jones, and Peter Gabriel.
In 1989, he began his collaboration with Paco de Lucia with whom he has played the world over. In 1991, Peter Gabriel invited him to participate in the Real World Recording where Canizares met up with Roger Bolton, Arona N 'Diaye, Guo Yue and the Grid. Juan Manuel has also played with Dire Straits during their tour of Spain.
Born in Madrid, Jorge Pardo (saxophone and flute) began studying music at the age of ten in Madrid's Royal Conservatory. One of Spain's leading young musicians, he has played with such great artists as Tete Montullu, Slide Hampton, Lou Benett, Pony Poindexter and Pedro Iturralde. In 1977, he formed the group, "Dolores," which served as his entry into the flamenco world. He has toured with Paco de Lucia in Europe and South America and has participated in
many experimental works with such flamenco greats as Camaron de la Isla. In addition to his own recording career, Pardo plays all the leading European jazz festivals, and is con?sidered one of Europe's most promising young jazz musicians.
Percussionist Rubem Dantas was born in the city of Salvador, Bahia (Brazil), an area known as the cradle of Brazil's marvelous rhythms. While in Brazil, Rubem belonged to several groups, accompanied artists of the magnitude of Gilberto Gil, and worked with the Brazilian National Folklore Ballet. Today Rubem lives in Spain where he, along with Jorge Pardo, formed the group "Dolores." Like all the members of the present group, Rubem has worked on Paco's latest records.
Born in Jerez de la Frontera, Spain, Joaquin Grilo started to dance in the school of his first teacher, Cristobal El Jerezano. In 1981, he moved on to the dance studio of Fernando Belmonte and Paco del Rio, becoming part of the ballet "Albarizuela," where he reached the position of first dancer.
Since then, Joaquin Grilo has toured France, England, Switzerland, Japan, and performed on American television. In 1988, he toured for a month in Japan and was invited to perform in the Fifth Biennial of Flamenco Art in Seville. In 1989, Joaquin Grilo garnered first prize at Vicente Escudero. He has performed with the group Teatro Ballet Espanol touring in both Europe and America. In 1992, he took part in a show of six "bailadores" (flamenco dancers) at Zambra, and in Madrid with Antonio Canales, Cristobal Reyes, Joaquin Cortes, Joaquin Ruiz and Adrian. In recent years, he has collaborated with Vicente Amigo at jazz festivals in Europe, and performed in the Joaquin Cortes Show Madrid, Bilbao, Caracas, and Japan.

Piano Concerto No. 3 in d minor, Op. 30
Sergei Rachmaninoff
Born April i, i8jj at Oneg, district of
Novgorod, Russia Died March 28, 1943 in Beverly Hills,
Rachmaninoff completed the Piano Concerto No. 3 in d minor in the summer of 1909 at his country estate at Ivanovka shortly before his first American tour which began in November of that year. The com?poser himself said that "it was written for America, [but] I had not found much time for practicing and was not familiar enough with some passages, [so] I took a dumb piano on the ship and practiced during the journey." Touring with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, he was featured as composer, pianist and conductor, leading the orchestra in his Second Symphony and tone poem The Isle of the Dead, and giving numerous recitals of his music. The Third Piano Concerto was premiered on November 28, 1909 with the New York Symphony Orchestra under Walter Damrosch with the composer at the piano; it was performed later in the season with the New York Philharmonic, conducted by Gustav Mahler. Regarding the latter performance, the composer confided to his biographer, Oskar von Riesemann: "At that time, Mahler was the only conductor whom I considered worthy to be classed with Nikisch. He touched my composer's heart straightaway by devoting himself to my Concerto until the accompani?ment, which is rather complicated, had been practiced to the point of perfection, although he had already gone through another long rehearsal. According to Mahler every detail of the score was important -an attitude too rare among conductors."
Otto Kinkleday -the annotator for the first New York performances -stressed "the composer's place in the lineage of
Tchaikovsky," describing the Third Piano Concerto as "Russian throughout, Russian in its melodic conception, in its rhythms, and in the robust, virile qualities even of its gentler passages."
The first movement "Allegro, ma non tanto" begins with the piano stating the first theme, against a rhythmic pulse in clarinets, bassoons and lower strings. The main theme is taken over by the horns and violas, as the piano plays arpeggios. Subsequently there is a transitional passage -which will be heard again transformed into a lyrical theme in the last movement. This leads to the second theme, signaled by staccato string playing. This theme is heard in many guises: as a march episode, a chorale for the piano, and finally as a grand lyrical melody. A brilliant cadenza concludes the development section. After a fortississimo climax derived from the second theme, a striking episode ensues in which the piano performs arabesques while the main theme is played by solo woodwinds and horn. Following the second theme on the piano, and the initial rhythmic motif in the orchestra, the soloist provides a final statement of the main theme. A short coda concludes the movement.
The second movement is referred to as an "Intermezzo" with the tempo marking of "Adagio," but it is far more expansive than its title would lead one to believe. This is in fact a set of variations on a theme in which the music explores new harmonic territories. The theme is a lugubrious melody initiated by the strings and presented in its entirety by the oboe. Abruptly, the piano enters, bringing about a rhapsodic mood, with determined chromaticism and conflicting rhythms. The piano then presents several variations on the theme, each becoming more and more elaborate in ornamentation. A sudden scherzo-like passage interrupts the proceedings with a new, syncopated melody in the clarinet and bassoon, played over the waltz-like rhythm of the strings and brilliant
triplet figurations on the piano. After an orchestral coda, the piano bursts in with a seven-measure bravura passage which leads directly into the finale.
The glittering and mercurial third move?ment is marked "Alia breve." For the most part this exhibits a fast and nervous march-like mood, but passages derived from the first movement provide lyrical contrasts. The piano presents the bell-like theme of Russian character, and the rhythmic motif from the first movement is recalled. The second theme takes the form of a complex harmonic progression initially played by both orchestra and soloist, with the rhythmic motif still making its presence felt. Soon a melody blossoms, based on the transitional passage of the first movement. The develop?ment section is extremely elaborate both texturally and harmonically, reaching a rhythmically and dynamically tense climax. This leads to a highly virtuosic cadenza, after which the lyrical theme finds its utmost expression as the Concerto reaches a glorious conclusion.

Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43
Jean Sibelius Born December 8, 1865 in Hameenlinna
(Tavastehusj, Finland Died September 20, 195J in Jarvenpaii, near
Helsinki, Finland
The world of symphonic music at the time Jean Sibelius began to seriously compose was dominated by Johannes Brahms. The great German composer exerted a profound influence on the young Sibelius. The two met each other in Vienna in 1890, at which time Sibelius paid reverent tribute to the great master. In the following year, Sibelius penned his first orchestral works -two
overtures which imitate the post-Romantic style of Brahms' music. Shortly thereafter, Sibelius returned from his travels to Germany and Austria to his native Finland, and he became impassioned with patriotic zeal. Due largely to his study of the epic Finnish poem The Kalevala, Sibelius' heightened sense of nationalism began to precipitate changes in his own approach to composition. He began to write music of a distinct Finnish character, gradually supplanting his post-Romantic tendencies and turning to Finnish folk music as a source of inspiration. Throughout the next decade he sought to express through his compositions the essence of his native land and its people. Programmatic titles are found often among his works during this time, as in the tone poems Kullervo, Op. 7 (1892), En Saga, Op. g (1892) and Finlanctia, Op. 26 (1899), all of which are based on national myths.
Sibelius composed his first symphony just prior to writing Finlandia, and began work on his second symphony in the spring of 1901 while in Italy. He completed the work later in the same year in Finland. While both of these works remain basically true to the Germanic post-Romantic traditions (the first symphony echoing Tchaikovsky as well in its lyricism and traditional approach to form), they are imbued with a Finnish character. Moreover, some have contended that the second symphony had an explicit patriotic program. George Schneevoight, the eminent Finnish conductor and close friend of the composer, claimed that Sibelius' intention for the second symphony was to depict the pastoral life of the Finns (first movement), nationalistic fervor interrupted by "the thought of a brutal role over the people bringing with it timidity of soul" (second movement), the awakening of rebellious sentiment (third movement) and the promise of deliverance and freedom (the Finale). It should be pointed out, however, that Sibelius denied any such explicit pro-
grammatic intent for the work. Furthermore, in the course of a meeting with Gustav Mahler in 1908, the composer remarked: "I am not a literary musician. For me, music begins where words cease. A scene can be expressed in painting, a drama in words; a symphony should be first and last music. . . . The germ and fertilization of my symphonies have been solely musical." The Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43 was premiered on March 8, 1902 in Helsinki, with Sibelius conduct?ing. The work was such an immediate and tremendous success that Sibelius presented it again on March 8, 10, 14 and 16 with each concert sold out, an unparalleled achievement in Finland.
The first movement of the work, marked "Allegretto," is in the key of D Major and 64 meter. In its opening, one encounters a gradually rising chord in the strings which is built on a series of three-note motifs which, after being answered by a falling chordal motif in the woodwinds, coalesce into the principal theme. Sibelius also presents two subsidiary themes in the exposition. The development section features these three thematic ideas ingeniously embellished and combined by Sibelius. In the truncated recapitulation section, Sibelius contrasts the various motifs contrapuntally, further high?lighting the innate dynamics of the musical texture.
The dramatic second movement, marked "Tempo andante, ma rubato," is in the key of d minor and 44 meter. Cast in the form of a sonatina (similar in its structure to sonata-allegro form except for the absence of a development section), the movement revolves around a tension between its two subjects. Commencing with a flicker from the timpani which leads directly into a long pizzicato passage in the lower strings, the first subject, a morose-sounding theme in Aeolian d minor, is presented by the bassoons. The music becomes more agitated, involving the entire orchestra, and reaches an intensity
whose momentum hardly abates for the remain?der of the work. The second subject, in Lydian f-sharp minor, is heard as if from a distance played by muted strings. It offers a slight glimmering hope against the heavy seriousness of the first subject. The preponderance of the first subject in the recapitulation section, however, confirms the overall solemn mood of the movement.
The vibrant third movement, marked "Vivacissimo," is in the key of B-flat Major and 68 meter. This Scherzo, a whirlwind of excited anticipation, is briefly subdued by the Trio, marked "Lento e suave," which is heralded by five beats of timpani with a pronounced diminuendo. The music then swells, as Sibelius builds a bridge out of the chordal motif of the oboe theme and a contrapuntal descending theme which serves to directly link the Scherzo to the Finale.
The Finale, marked "Allegro moderate" is in the key of D Major and 32 time. The first subject of this movement, derived from the chordal motif of the transitional bridge, is of a festive character. The trombone fanfares and fiery trumpet passages presage the heroic character of the entire movement. In contrast to the first theme, the second theme is presented by the woodwinds over a flowing ostinato passage in the cellos and violas. The third subject returns to the fanfare quality of the first subject in the development section, Sibelius treats the themes contrapuntally and finishes the section with a climax similar to the bridge passages which links the Scherzo and the Finale. In the recapitulation section, the second theme's ostinato background assumes far greater musical prominence. Suddenly, the melody modulates from the minor to D Major, and the final theme thunders forth triumphantly. The coda presents music derived from the first subject, which is developed into a majestic chorale-like conclusion.

The foundation in 1776 of the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra, the oldest body of Russian musicians, paved the way for the creation of the future Bolshoi Theatre. At first, the company and orchestra did not have a home: shows were staged in a private house. But in 1790, the theatre moved to a specially constructed stage building on the site of the modern Bolshoi Theatre called Petrovsky Theatre after the street in which in stands.
The Bolshoi Theatre became a state insti?tution in 1806, at which point it came under the control of the office of the Moscow Imperial Theatres. The legacy of the great Russian composer Pyotyr Tchaikovsky was of enormous importance in the development of the Bolshoi Theatre. He rejected the concept of music having only an illustrative and auxiliary role in ballet and instead made it an important element of the drama. Consequently, the significance of the orchestra in ballet grew quite considerably. The Orchestra's repertoire was widened to include works by Glinka, Mussorgsky, Borodin and Rimsky-Korsakov.
The Great October Revolution ushered in a new era in the history of the Bolshoi Theatre and in the 1920s and 30s the Orchestra became a focal for the best musi?cians in the country. In the first five years after the revolution works by Soviet composers such as Prokofiev and Shostakovich began to appear alongside the classics of Russian and foreign composers. It was at this time also that the Orchestra gained its a reputation as one of the most popular symphony orchestras in the Soviet Union.
Since then the Orchestra's activities have only increased. Works by Soviet composers constitute more than one third of all pro?ductions in the Theatre. Many eminent Soviet conductors have worked with the
Bolshoi Orchestra, including Svetlanov, Rozhdestvensky and Samosud as well as famous conductors from abroad. There are now some 300 musicians in the Bolshoi Orchestra, including many outstanding per?formers who frequendy appear in ensembles and as soloists both at home and abroad. The Orchestra has toured successfully throughout Europe and Japan and appeared with the Bolshoi Opera at the Wolf Trap Farm Park and the Metropolitan Opera House in the summer of 1991. Alexander Lazarev and the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra recently signed an exclusive recording contract with the Warner Classics French label Erato Disques. The first two recordings, containing selections from Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty and The Nutcracker, have been released to critical acclaim. Subsequent recordings include Great Russian Opera Choruses, released in January 1994, featuring the Bolshoi Opera Chorus, and music of Khachaturian, Rimsky-Korsakov and Rachmaninoff. In Autumn 1993 die Orchestra undertook its first tour of the United States under the direction of Maestro Lazarev and had artistic triumphs at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C, New York City's Carnegie Hall, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, and Symphony Hall in Boston, as well as an extraordinary response from audiences in the cities of Adanta, Birmingham, and Hartford.
In June 1995, Peter Feranec was appointed music director to succeed Maestro Lazarev. In the Autumn of 1995, the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra returns for a transcontinental tour of North America under his direction, including performances in San Diego, Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco, and Las Vegas, as well as two performances in the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts in Orange County, California. In addition to tonight's Ann Arbor concert, there will be performances presented in the Chicago
Symphony's Orchestra Hall, East Lansing, Toronto's Roy Thomson Hall, a reengagement at Boston's Symphony Hall, and performances ending the tour in Washington D.C.'sJohn F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. The Orchestra will also be included in the Great Performers at Lincoln Center Series at New York City's Avery Fisher Hall. During the 1996-97 season, the Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra returns for a tour of the United States including Florida, Georgia, Alabama, North and South Carolina, ending the tour in the Northeast to include the cities of Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Boston and New York City.
The Bolshoi Symphony Orchestra makes its UMS debut with this evening's performance.
Conductor Peter Feranec was born in 1964 in Bratislava, the capital of the Slovak Republic. His musical education began with private lessons in piano, organ, and music theory from the renowned Slovak Professor Torzo.
In 1986, after graduating from the Bratislava Academy of Music, Mr. Feranec attended seminars led by Professor Botvos at the Bartok International Music Festival and Seminar held in Hungary, and continued his studies in the conducting of modern music of Ligetti, Stravinsky, Webern, Bartok and other leading twentieth-century composers. Beginning in 1986, Mr. Feranec studied on a scholarship from the Russian Ministry of Culture for a five-year period at the State Conservatory in Leningrad (now St. Petersburg), under the tutelage of Professor Marissjansons. During this period, Mr. Feranec served as conductor and leader of the chamber orchestra of foreign students, and conducted several operas and symphonic
concerts across the Soviet Union, in cities including St. Petersburg, Tblisi, Tallinn and Minsk.
In an unprecedented honor for a youth of twenty-five, Mr. Feranec was selected as Conductor of the Slovak National Opera House after completing his studies in
Vienna in 1991 under Professor Osterreicher. Mr. Feranec was a finalist in the International Conductor's Competitions in Tokyo and Budapest in 1991 and 1992, and gold medalist in the 1992 "Forum Juenger Kunstler" competition in Vienna.
As Conductor of the Vienna Chamber Opera since 1993, Mr. Feranec has led pro?ductions of operas including The Bartered Bride, Don Giovanni, La scala di seta, Boccacio, The Marriage of Figaro, and Eugene Onegin.
Mr. Feranec made a highly successful debut as conductor at the Bolshoi Theatre .on February 28, 1995, in an original-language production of The Marriage of Figaro. This epoch-making production for the Bolshoi, which is in the midst of revolutionary changes reflecting the new democratic Russia, featured the inclusion of foreign guest artists, such as Germany's Joachim Hertz, and attracted widespread attention from the international music community. The 31-year-old Mr. Feranec was highly praised for his ability in this production of Figaro, and was seen as a fitting successor to the Bolshoi's Alexander Lazarev. Thus, Mr. Feranec was appointed for this crucial post, becoming the Bolshoi's first foreign music director, accepting the mantle of responsibility for carrying on the Bolshoi's rich cultural history and traditions.
Tonight's concert marks Mr. Feranec's debut under UMS auspices.
Pianist Boris Berezovsky, winner of the 1990 International Tchaikovsky Competition, was born in Moscow in 1969 and had his first piano lesson at the age of five. He later studied with Elizabeth Wirsaladze at the Moscow State Conservatoire.
In 1988 Boris Berezovsky made his London debut in a recital at the Wigmore Hall. The Times described him as "a player of dazzling virtuosity and formidable power " and following his recital there the following year, as "an artist of exceptional promise." This promise was realized when he won the Gold Medal at the Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 1990. Later that year he participated in a Tchaikovsky Gala Concert with the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra with Yuri Temirkanov, Itzhak Perlman, Yo-Yo Ma and Jessye Norman. The concert was telecast worldwide and recorded for video release by BMG Classics.
Boris Berezovsky has since given concerts in London, Paris, Rome, Zurich, Munich, Salzburg, Amsterdam, Montreal, Vienna, Bern, Budapest and Tokyo. He made his United States debut in 1991 with a recital in
Fort Worth, where the Dallas Morning News reported: "This was important playing. What Berezovsky did and how he saw the music was totally unexpected. It is something new or even something being reborn in piano playing."
Orchestras with whom Boris Berezovsky has performed include The Philharmonia, the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, the Halle Orchestra, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, the Soviet Festival Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Berlin Symphony Orchestra.
Boris Berezovsky has an exclusive record?ing contract with Teldec Classics, with whom he has released four discs -Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 3 with the Philharmonia Orchestra and Eliahu Inbal; Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 recorded live in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire; Chopin Etudes which received a prize from the German record critics (Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik) and most recently discs of Schumann and Ravel solo piano works.
Plans for the future include further con?certo and recital discs for Teldec, and con?certs in London, Glasgow, Seattle, Montreal, Boston, Stavanger, Salzburg, Paris, Budapest, Italy, the Netherlands and Japan. He gave his Proms debut at the Royal Albert Hall in July 1994.
Mr. Berezovsky replaced an ailing Maurizio Pollini last March 1995 in a solo recital sponsored by the University Musical Society.
This evening's performance marks Mr. Berezovsky's second appearance under UMS auspices.

'iih the release of Gershwin for Lovers, Marcus Roberts' much anticipated debut on Columbia Records, the thirty-one year-old pianist adds a definitive work to an illustrious archive of jazz interpretations of songs by one of the foremost twentieth-century American composers. "One of my goals is to learn -and be able to present if I choose to -as much of the repertoire as possible, and I'd been thinking about doing a Gershwin album for a while," Roberts explains. "To the best of my knowledge, nobody had ever made an all-Gershwin trio record, so naturally I was attracted to this concept. There were other reasons as well, the most important being Gershwin's tremendous contribution to the history of the American popular song. He also occupies a unique position linking the schools of jazz and classical music having written orchestral works like Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris and in the opera Porgy & Bess. And I learned he was really quite respected as a pianist."
Gershwin's popular songs, penned pri?marily in the 20s and 30s, have long served as perfect vehicles for inspired excursions by jazz singers and soloists, and Roberts confides he was well aware of classical precedents that had been set before he chose the ten selections on Gershwin for Lovers. "Gershwin wrote so many great, timeless melodies -most of which seem to be love songs -that work well when interpreted by a vocalist or an instrumentalist. I'm always trying to find new creative challenges for myself and it made sense to take a new look at a body of music that jazz masters before me found so appealing," he explains. "I chose some favorites after listening to a bunch of singers, particularly Ella Fitzgerald and Sarah Vaughan who recorded Gershwin
Songbooks, and Billie Holiday who also did memorable versions of his songs. I was also inspired by recordings of Gershwin songs Pops (Louis Armstrong) and Bird (Charlie Parker) made, as well as by Miles' version of 'The Man I Love' on Bags Groove (with Milt Jackson and Percy Heath) and Monk's solo versions of 'Nice Work If You Can Get It' and 'The Man I Love.'"
With six previous recordings, a six-year tenure in various ensembles led by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, various tours as a music director and pianist with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and burgeoning solo career to his credit, Roberts has been established him internationally as one of the most talented, resourceful and creative musicians of his generation, and a leading standard bearer of the mainstream jazz tradition. When it was time to select the personnel for Gershwin for Lovers, he instinctively turned to bassist Reginald Veal and drummer Herlin Riley who, together with Roberts, provided a for?midable foundation as Marsalis' rhythm section from 1988 to 1991.
"It's always an absolute pleasure working with Reggie and Herlin because I just love the way they play and the way they play together. We've developed a unique trio style over the years which made the entire project very relaxed. And I knew they could do anything I needed them to do for this recording. I wanted to make sure each piece had an implied direction we could take, yet I didn't want to over-arrange the music. Knowing they were there meant I was able to play in the elegant fashion I had in mind."
In Gershwin for Lovers songs which have remained popular for sixty to seventy years are enhanced by arrangements and perfor?mances that instill new and fresh ideas while respecting the inherent brilliance and famil?iarity of Gershwin's original score. Figuring out how to best utilize the bass and drums both rhythmically and harmonically was
another challenge. Maruc roberts introduces his new trio and the music from Gershwin for Lovers to United States audiences this fall.
Marthaniel Roberts was born in Jacksonville, Florida on August 7, 1963. Blind since the age of four, Roberts was first exposed to music in the local church where his mother was a gospel singer. Recognizing their son's love for music, his parents bought him a piano, and he began nine years of formal music training when he was twelve. While a music major at Florida State University in Tallahassee, Roberts studied with Leonidus Lipovetsky (a student of the noted Russian piano teacher Rosina Lhevinne) which helped lay the foundation for his masterful technique. He cites such diverse pianists as Art Tatum, Valdimir Ashkenazy, James P.Johnson and Van Cliburn as early influences.
Aspiring to a career in jazz, Roberts won several statewide competitions and earned plaudits from Florida's governor. Then, in 1982, in Chicago, he won the competition at the annual convention of the Association of Jazz Educators where he met pianist Ellis Marsalis, patriarch of the noted jazz dynasty. Wynton Marsalis had heard Roberts play at the convention and the trumpeter asked his father to give him his phone number and a message to call anytime.
Marsalis would have a profound influence on Roberts' artistic development, as he took the young pianist under his wing, expo'sing him to as yet unmined treasures from the rich jazz tradition (i.e. "... listen to Monk") and teaching him about the discipline required of the creative improviser and composer. By 1985, their relationship had evolved to the point where Marsalis invited Roberts to take over the piano chair in his quartet, replacing Kenny Kirkland. Roberts was floored, but so was Marsalis, because by the time the pianist joined the ensemble he had learned its entire repertoire from tapes the trumpeter had sent. Roberts maintained
a busy touring schedule with Marsalis from 1985 to 1992 and appeared on the five Columbia recordings released during this period.
Roberts continued to garner several awards including the $10,000 first prize at the First Thelonius Monk International Jazz Competition in 1987. Marcus Roberts has the distinction of being the only jazz musi?cian to have four of his recordings reach the top of Billboard's traditional jazz chart: The Truth Is Spoken Here, Deep In The Shed, As Serenity Approaches and Alone With Three Giants were all recorded for BMG under the Novus label. He is also active as an educator, conducting seminars and clinics throughout the United States.
Gershwin for Lovers is the first of several projects Roberts will record for Columbia. Another Gershwin project is in the works featuring the Got Rhythm Variations, Concerto in Fand "... a version of Rhapsody in Blue revealing how this piece should be interpreted from a jazz musician's perspective," It will be released on the Sony Classical label along with a collection of Scott Joplin rags and short Chopin character pieces "... designed to show the relationship between the two composers."
This evening's performance marks Mr. Roberts' third appearance under UMS auspices.

Arvo Part
Born September 11, igjj in Paide, Estonia (then U.S.S.R.)
Arvo Part studied composition at the conservatory in Tallinn and then worked as a sound engineer for the Estonian radio from 1958 to 1967. In 1980 he emigrated to Vienna and after receiving a grant from the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst moved to West Berlin, where he has lived since 1982. Two distinct phases divide Part's work. His early com?positions consisted mainly of serial works; this phase came to an end with his Credo (1968.) The period from 1968 to 1976 was one of transition, during which he wrote the Third Symphony. His intense studies of medieval music opened a new phase in 1976. The composi?tions of this period, such as Fratres, Tabula Rasa and Arbos, are characterized by the combination of scales and triads with interchanging yet stable patterns, which Part calls tintinnabuli style.
The Magnificat (1989), for choir a cappella, is dedicated to Christian Gruber and the State and Cathedral Church Convention, Berlin, 1990. The familiar liturgical text in Latin is rendered by Part in a setting which emphasized nuances of tone, color and intonation.
anima mea Dominum
et exsultavit spritus meus
in Deo salutari meo;
quia respexit humilitatem ancillae suae,
ecce enim ex hoc beatam me dicent
omnes generationes.
Quia fecit mihi magna, qui potens est:
et sanctum nomen eius,
et misericordia eius a progenie in progenies
timentibus eum.
Fecit potentiam in bracchio suo,
dispersit superbos mente cordis sui,
deposuit potentes de sede,
et exaltavit humiles,
esurientes implevit bonis,
et divites dimisit inanes.
Suscepit Israel, puerum suum,
recordatus misericordiae suae,
sicut Iocutus est ad patres nostros,
Abraham et semini eius in saecula.
My soul doth magnify the Lord
and my spirit hath rejoiced
in God my Saviour.
For he hath regarded
the lowliness of his hand-maiden.
For behold, from henceforth,
all generations shall call me blessed.
For he that is mighty hath magnified me,
and holy is his Name.
And his mercy is on them that fear him,
throughout all generations.
He hath shewed strength with his arm,
he hath scattered the proud
in the imagination of their hearts.
He hath put down the mighty from their seat,
and hath exalted the humble and meek.
He hath filled the hungry with good things,
and the rich he hath sent empty away.
He remembering his mercy
hath holpen his servant Israel,
as he promised to our forefathers,
Abraham and his seed, forever.
Silouans Song
Silouans Song, subtitled "My soul yearns after the Lord...," was composed in 1991 and is dedicated to Archimandrite Sophrony and his brethren. It was commissioned by Svenska Rikskonserter, and first performed in a small church at Lake Siljan, north of Stockholm (where Bergman made Light in Winter, as it happens, and wrote many of his scripts). The title of the piece alludes to the Russian Orthodox monk of the same name.
Te Deum
Arvo Part's TeDeum was composed in 198485 (revision: 1986). The work is dedicated to Alfred Schlee, and is scored for three choirs, string orchestra, prepared piano and tape (windharp).
The liturgical text of the TeDeum, for Part, "consists of eternal truths. To me, it is like the panorama of a mountain range in its constant stillness. The Swiss painter Martin Ruff once told me that in clear weather he could distinguish more than twenty shades of blue; I imme?diately began to 'hear' these 'blue' mountains."
That "constant stillness" has, of course, become a constant in Part's own work and is, in fact its unifying aspect. Michael Haerdter pinpointed this essence and one manner in which it transcends conventional Western notions of "religious music": "Part's 'cosmic' spirituality (close to the 'cosmic laws' Kandinsky referred to in his painterly work) comes naturally in touch with a timeless Japanese sensitivity as expressed, for example, in Zen philosophy. The denial of the ego in order to approach the numinous, the importance of concentration and silence in order to come nearer to eternal truth, and the creative use of gentle force are common characteristics linking Arvo Part's work with oriental spirituality."
His is a music rich with silence in contrast with a noisy contemporary world, determined in its single-minded rejection of postmodern musical abundance -the fashionable anything-goes syndrome. As Part once said, with admirable honesty: 'The complex and many-faceted only confuses me, and I must search for unity. I have discovered that it is enough when a single note is beautifully played. This one note, or silent beat, or a moment of silence, comforts me." The intention of all his work is to serve. It is music as a form of prayer, which invites the emotional participation of the listener: "I could compare my music to white light which contains all colors. Only a prism can divide the colors and make them appear; this prism could be the spirit of the listener."
Of the Te Deum Part says: "I felt the necessity to render everything in soft colors. Dynamics, tempo, the general coloration -all on one arc of breath. The text sounds gentle in my ears."
Heightening the sense of wonder in the music is the deep and rich reverberation of the windharp. Part notes 'This instrument was designed and built by a Norwegian master crafts?man on principles similar to those of the Greek Aeolian harp. Its strings are set in motion by the breath of the wind. . . it's as if the harp is waiting for the wind's caress. A wonderful tape was created that I have employed as a pedal point in the TeDeum, it fulfills a function comparable to that of the Ison in Byzantine church music."

Singet Dem Herrn Ein neues Lied, bwv 225
Johann Sebastian Bach
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach
Died July 28, 1750 in lApzig
In i 789, Mozart visited the Thomaskirche in Leipzig, Bach's home and workplace for more than 25 years. In honor of their famous guest, the choir performed for him Bach's motet, Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied. Mozart was enthralled! At the conclusion, he exclaimed, "Here, for once, is something from which one may learn!," and he didn't leave the church until he had thoroughly studied the complete manuscript.
Bach composed his motets, of which only eight survive, for special occasions outside of the Lutheran Sunday service. The liturgy in the 18th century called for a simple motet after the organ prelude, but the extended counterpoint and expanded proportions in Bach's motets (four of which are multi-movement works for double chorus) made vocal demands that were well beyond the abilities of his regular motet choir. Scholars speculate that Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied may have been composed for a special New Year's service, or perhaps a birthday celebration for Friederich August, the Elector of Saxony. Most of Bach's other motets were almost certainly written for burial services of local dignitaries, yet, as Malcolm Boyd notes, "so confident and cheerful are they that the possibility of Si7iget dem Herrn also being a funeral piece should not be ruled out."
For much of the first movement in Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied, one choir reiterates a profound yet simple exhortation to sing ("Singet"), while the other responds with its own jubilantly florid fulfilment. In the fugue at "Die Kinder Zion sei'n frohlich," the second choir gradually joins with the first, strengthening each entrance of the fugue theme as if drawing out extra stops on an organ.
The reflective central movement is a troped chorale: choir II sings a verse from the 16th-century chorale, Nun lob mein Seel, with the first choir adding lyric, aria-like commentary between each phrase. Although Bach had included this chorale in numerous other vocal and keyboard works, the harmonization in this motet is newly-conceived.
The final movement sets the second and sixth verses from one of the most joyous of psalms, Psalm 150. Bach continues to employ the contrast effects characteristic of a double
chorus, but by the concluding "Halleluja" the two choirs have united, joined in an ecstatic fugue of faith and unfettered praise. As Boyd so succinctly put it, this is "one of the sunniest pieces of counterpoint ever written."
(Psalm 194, 1-3)
Singet dem Herrn ein neues Lied!
die Gemeinde der Heiligen sollen ihn loben
Isreal freue sich des, der ihn gemacht hat.
Die Kinder Zion sei'n Frolich fiber
ihrem Konige.
Sie sollen loben seinen Namen im Reigen,
mit Pauken und Hargen sollen sie ihm spielen
Gott, nimm dich ferner unser an!
Denn ohne dich ist nichts getan
mit alien unsern Sachen.
Drum sie du unser Schirm und Licht
und trugt uns unsre Hoffnung nicht,
so wirst du's ferner machen.
Wohl dem, der sich nur steif und fest
auf dich und deine Held verlasst.
(Johann Gramann) Wie sich ein Vater erbarmet Uber seine junge Kinderlein, so tut der Herr uns alien, so wir ihn kindlich fiirchten rein. Er kennt das arm Germachte, Gott weiss, wir sind nur Staub, gleich wie das Gras vom Rechen, Ein Blum und fallend Laub. Der Wind nur druber wehet, So isi es nicht mehr da. Also der Mensch vergehet, sein End, Das ist ihm nah.
(Psalm 150, 2, 6)
Lobet den Herrn in sienen Taten,
lobet ihn in seiner grossen Herrlichkeit.
Alles, was Odem hat, lobe den Herrn.
Note by Luke Howard.
Sing unto the Lord a new song!
The congregation of saints shall praise Him.
Let Israel rejoice in Him that made him.
Let the children of Zion be joyful in their King.
Let them praise His name in the dance:
Let them sing praises unto Him with the timbrel
and harp.
God, continue to take care of us!
For without you all our efforts
lead to nothing.
Therefore you are our shield and light
and do not disappoint our hope.
So will you continue.
Blessed is he who steadfastly
relies on you and your grace.
Just as a father pities his own young children, so does the Lord towards us all, . so, like children, we meekly fear him. He knows our poor handiwork, God knows we are but dust, like grass at reaping, like a flower and falling leaf. The wind blows over it, and it is no longer there. Thus man passes away, his end is near.
Praise the Lord for his mighty acts,
praise Him according to His Excellent greatness
Let everything that hath breath praise the Lord.
Collage B-A-C-H
In Part's transitional years he turned to the music of J.S. Bach for guidance and wrote several works based on Bach's idiom. Among them is Collage B-A-C-H (1968), scored for strings, oboe, and keyboards; its first movement is a moto perpeluo, gradually shifting from B-flat to b minor. The slow movement trancribes a noble Bach sarabande for oboe and harpsi?chord; then transfers it to strings and attempts to demolish it with the noise, rather than music, of note-clusters on a modern piano. In a modified da capo of the d-minor sarabande, hints of the B-A-C-H motif creep into the texture, to become the theme of the third movement. Contrapuntal and spikey-textured, the third movement ("Ricercar") comes to an affirmative conclusion in an eight-part D-major triad.
Canticum Mariae Virginis
Einojuhani Rautavaara
Born October 9, 1928 in Helsinki, Finland
Einojuhani Rautavaara is one of the most significant contemporary Finnish composers. He has acquired a wide perspective over various styles and techniques from teachers such as Aarre Merikanto, Aaron Copland, Vincent Persichetti, Roger Sessions, Wladimir Vogel and Rudolf Petzold.
Einojuhani Rautavaara has composed five symphonies, four operas and several other dramatic works, music for string and wind orchestras, concertos, works for solo instruments, and chamber music.
Choral music is one of the major focuses of Mr. Rautavaara's output. Many of his compositions have become "evergreens" among Finnish choirs (as with the present choir); in discussing Finnish choral music in general he cannot be overlooked.
Ave maris Stella, Dei mater alma, Atque semper Virgo, Felix cali porta.
Sumens illud Ave Gabrielis ore, funda nos in pace, mutans Heva nomen.
Solve vincla reis, profer lumen caecis, 3 ? male nostra pelle, bona cuncta posce.

Blessed is the Man
Cyrillns Knelt
Born December 5, i88g in Vonnu (West Estonia)
Died March 26, 7962 in Haapsalu (West Estonia)
Cyrillus Kreek's compositions are classics of Estonian choral music. He studied at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, then worked as a music teacher and conductor, mostly at Haapsalu and as a teacher at the Tallinn Conservatory. Kreek was an enthusiastic Estonian folk song scholar. His collections include such rarities as West Estonian religious folk songs modeled on Swedish, Russian and German songs. These have inspired Kreek to compose 4 Psalms (1923) and his magnum opus, the Estonian Requiem (192527). In 1943 Kreek wrote a cycle called Musica sacra.
(Psalm 1: 1, 6; Psalm 2: Ha, 12b; Psalm 3: 7)
Blessed is the man
who does not take the wicked for his guide
The LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked is doomed.
Worship the LORD with reverence,
tremble, and kiss the king
Blessed are all who find refuge in him
Rise up, Lord, save me, O my God.
Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Veljo Tormis
Born August j, 1930 in Kuusalu (Estonia)
Veljo Tormis was born in 1930; having studied organ and choral conducting, he turned to composition in 1950. In 1956 he graduated from the Moscow State Conservatory, where he studied with V. Shebalin. He is primarily known as a composer of vocal music rooted in the traditions of his native folk song and yet entirely contemporary in feeling. One of his best known works is the Estonian Calendar Songs (1967), heard in part today. The song cycles that make up Forgotten Peoples were composed over a period of twenty years (beginning in 1970) and have become widely known through the performances (and recording, on ECM New Series) of the present choir and orchestra.

St. John's Song
Let's go out to look at St. John, John, John.
Does John have curly hair.John.
Here the barley is well rounded
the oat grains square.
John came along the field,
walked along the golden field,
brought much luck,
brought luck for the herd
John brought a long milk container
a low tub of butter
He brought the rye in armfuls
he brought the oats under this arms.

The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir turned professional in 1981, and now gives over fifty concerts yearly. Its concert tours to Finland, Sweden, Norway, Great Britain, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Poland, Czech Republic and Japan have been met with great acclaim. At the 1991 Takarazuka Chamber Choir competition in Japan, the choir won three gold medals for its outstand?ing performance in the Women's, Men's and Mixed Choir categories, and in addition was awarded the Grand Prix. The choir has worked with a number of guest conductors including Anders Ohrwall (Sweden), Sir David Willcocks (England) and Helmuth
Rilling (Germany).
The two pillars of Estonian culture, its Finno-Ugric language and heritage on the one hand and Western a
Christianity on the other, are strongly reflected in the choir's repertoire, which includes both A
the ancient folklore of the Finno-Ugric nations (as in the works of contemporary Estonian composer Veljo Tormis), as well as church music from throughout the ages. In recent seasons major works from the Baroque era and music by the contemporary composer Arvo Part have been the focus of interest. In the 199192 season the choir performed a series of concerts entitled Bach and Part including four Lutheran Masses by Bach and all of Part's major works for choir and orchestra. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir was one of fewer than twenty choirs worldwide to be invited to perform at the third World Symposium on Choral Music in Vancouver in 1993. The 199495 seasons included major tours to Spain and Austria, performing Haydn's Creation with the
Vienna Academy period instrument orchestra.
The Choir's recordings for ecm New SeriesBMG Classics, receive high praise from reviewers worldwide. These include a double CD Forgotten Peoples:
six song cycles by Veljo Tormis, Arvo Part's Te Deum (a Billboard classical best seller), and a soon to be released CD of Part's recently composed Litany.
The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir makes its UMS debut with this evening's performance.
Tonu Kaljuste, born in Tallinn in 1953, is the artistic director and chief conductor of the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, formerly known as the "Ellerhein" choir. Mr. Kaljuste has frequently worked as a guest conductor for the Finnish Radio Chamber Choir, the Swedish Radio Choir, the Vancouver Chamber Choir and the World Youth Choir '92. Mr. Kaljuste also conducts opera and orchestral concerts. He has directed a number of internatibnal choral seminars and workshops, serving as artistic director of the international choral festivals 'Tallinn '88" and "Tallinn '91" and the international song festival "Bridges of Song" in 1991. In 1992 he received the Annual Culture Award of Estonia. In 1993 Mr. Kaljuste founded the Tallinn Chamber Orchestra, and in July 1994, he accepted the position of chief conductor of the Swedish Radio Choir.
This evening's performance marks Mr. Kaljusle's debut under UMS auspices.
The Tallinn Chamber Orchestra was founded in 1989 by students of the Tallinn State Conservatory, under the direction of Jurri Gerretz. Quickly the ensemble's artistic successes led it to become a professional orchestra.
The orchestra, which numbers sixteen musicians, is closely associated with twentieth-century repertoire, including works by Bartok, Britten, Tiiiir, and Arvo Part. The TCO frequently collaborates with the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, and in 1993 the orchestra recorded its first CD with that ensemble. That CD (on the ECM New Series label) features the Part TeDeum.
The Tallinn Chamber Orchesu"a frequently works with guest conductors, including Terje Tonnesen, Richard Tognetti and Juha Kangas. The orchestra has already toured widely -to Finland, Germany, France and Canada. This tour is its United States debut.

Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello in C minor, Op. 9,
No. 3
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born c. December 75, 17 JO in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Beethoven, who lived to be fifty-seven, was only twenty-eight when he composed this dramatic trio, yet in this work we can hear a foreshadowing of the late string quartets. This trio was composed after Beethoven's first great success with his Op. 1 piano trios, after his acclaimed debut as a pianist, and at the conclusion of his formal studies in Vienna with Haydn, Salieri and Albrechtsberger. He had not yet composed his first string quartet, and this trio is a significant step toward that genre. The key of this work is the very important c minor. Among .Beethoven's works in this key are the Fifth Symphony, the String Quartet Op. 18 No. 4, the Pathetique Sonata, and the Third Piano Concerto. For Beethoven, c minor was a key of passion and eloquence, of high drama and determined action. Like many later works, the trio begins with a fragment which suggests terrible power. The opening four notes of the piece appear obsessively throughout the first movement: clearly in the foreground, in inner voices, and mysteriously in the back?ground. These four notes are both tune and accompaniment -the murder weapon and the clues. Beethoven seems to have been haunted by these four notes through?out his life, for they appear as significant motives in Op. 131, (written 29 years after the Op. 9 trio), in Op. 132, and in the Grosse Fugue. The remaining movements are all equally remarkable for their perfect architecture and telling passion. Lacking the second violin of the string quartet, the string trio demands great harmonic and
contrapuntal skill from the composer and an extraordinary level of virtuosity and comradery from its performers.
Note by Bruce Adolphe, 1995
Trio No. i for Violin, Cello, and Bass
Edgar Meyer
Born November 24, i960 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
This piece was written in 1986 as the first of a set of three string trios for the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. The three trios were premiered in the summers of 1986, 1987, and 1988 by Daniel Phillips, Carter Brey, and the composer. Stylistically, these pieces are eclectic, with influences from classical, jazz, bluegrass, and other folk and ethnic musics. Trio No. 1 can be split in two separate pieces between the first and second movements. The second, third, and fourth movements form a continuous structure that is held together by increasing activity and harmonies that are not fully resolved until the finale. The first movement, however, is more self-contained. It is clear-cut with a simple melody and a noodley idea to contrast it. These two items are presented individually, then smashed together in the loud and busy middle section, and pulled back apart for the end of the movement. The second movement consists of alternating sections of violin wanderings over an ostinato and cellobass duets. Toward the end of the movement the violin is finally given the melody and things come together for a brief moment. The emphasis shifts to rhythm in the last two movements. Performance techniques from outside of classical music are used, including bowing patterns and pitch embellishments common to different types of traditional fiddle music. The final is an energetic rondo.
Note by Edgar Meyer
Quintet for Two Violins, Viola, Cello, and Bass in G Major, Op. 77
Antonin Dvorak
Born Sejjlember 8, 1841 in Miihlhausen
Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
In 1875, the year this quintet was com?posed, the thirty-four year old Dvorak was suddenly thrust into the public eye as the winner of the Austrian State Prize to "young, poor and talented painters, sculptors and musicians." Since Brahms and Edward Hanslick were among the judges, the prize was of great importance in the European musical community, and the young Czech composer's career was launched. Encouraged, Dvorak entered his new Quintet in G major, Op. 77, into a Czech competition sponsored by The Prague Artistic Circle with the inscription "To my nation." The judges unanimously granted Dvorak the prize of five ducats (about 12 dollars), praising the "distinction of melody, the technical skill in polyphonic composition, the master of form and. . . the knowledge of the instruments." The jury must have been impressed with the novel ensemble of string quartet plus bass, a combination virtually without precedent in the chamber music repertoire. The addition of the bass makes possible some rich, nearly orchestral sonorities, a point clearly demonstrated in the opening phrase of the "Allegro" stated by the cello and bass together. Freed by the bass from its traditional job as lowest voice, the cello is permitted greater expressive and melodic range. Dvorak borrowed the ethereal music of the "Intermezzo (Nocturno)" from his own String Quartet No. 4. Since this movement was excluded from the first published edition of the quintet, the composer later rescued it from oblivion by reviving it as his Nocturno
for string orchestra, Op. 40. The Moravian folk-dance inspired "Scherzo" and the exhil?arating finale frame the inspired "Poco andante," one of Dvorak's most sublime slow movements.

Quintet for Piano and Winds in E-flat Major, Op. 16
Ludtvig van Beethoven
Born c. December 15, 1770 in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Beethoven left his native Bonn for Vienna in November 179a and found a city which stood high above all others in the splendor of its professional musicians and the prodigality of its princely patrons. To this early period belong the Trio in C Major for two oboes and English horn, a set of variations for two oboes and English horn on Mozart's La ci darem, and a Sextet in E-flat for two clarinets, two bassoons, and two horns, which also appeared as a wind quintet. The present Quintet which was written before 1797 and scored for piano, oboe, clarinet, horn, and bassoon, went through two previous incarnations, first as a piano quartet and then as a string quartet.
QUATUOR POUR LA FIN DU TEMPS (Quartet for the End of Time)
Olivier Messiaen
Born December 10, 1908 in Avignon
Died April 27, 7992 in Paris
"And I smu another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow ivas upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire ... and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth.
And the angel lifted up his hand to heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever and ever... that there should be time no longer. "
-The Revelation of St. John 10:1-2, 5-6.
Soon after enlisting in the French Army in 1940, Olivier Messiaen was captured and sent to Stalag 8-A, a prisoner-of-war camp in
Polish Silesia. While there, he organized an ensemble from among the other prisoners: a violinist, a clarinetist (both of whom had been allowed to bring their instruments with them), and a cellist. Although there was no piano in the camp yet, and the cello provided by the German officers was missing one string, Messiaen began to compose his apocalyptic Quartet for the End ofTime, inspired by the tenth chapter of St. John's Revelation.
Messiaen's title is intentionally ambiguous: it refers to the end of "time" in musical as well as theological terms. He renounces the division of "musical time" into regular meters and equal durations, adopting instead his own rhythmic procedures (partially based on Hindu talas) in which irregular patterns "elongate the temporal" and strive for the Eternal. For Messiaen, the link between the?ology and music was sacred and irrevocable.
The Quartet has eight movements -a number with spiritual significance, as Messiaen explains in his preface to the score:
"Seven is tlie perfect number, the creation of six days made holy by the divine Sabbath; the seventh in its repose prolongs itself into eternity and becomes the eighth, of unfailing light, of immutable peace."
The opening movement introduces Messiaen's fascination with bird-song, signifying Nature and Divine Love: the dawn songs of the blackbird and nightingale form the "crystal liturgy" of the movement's title. In the Vocalise that follows, representations of the apocalyptic angel's power frame a peaceful, reflective recilativo.
Of the third movement (for solo clarinet) Messiaen writes, 'The abyss is Time, with its sadnesses and tediums. The birds are the opposite of Time; they are our desire for light, for stars, for rainbows, and for jubilant outpourings of song."
A short interlude leads to the expansive fifth movement for piano and cello, a melodic sermon on the eternal nature of
the Word. The sixth movement, according to Messiaen, is "music of stone ... as irre?sistible as steel, huge blocks of livid fury or ice-like frenzy." He describes the "cluster of rainbows" in the seventh movement as an ecstatic vortex, "a dizzying interpenetration of superhuman sounds and colors."
The final movement's slow ascent into the highest registers carries a triple symbolism: the ascension of man toward God, of the Son to the Father, and of the mortal toward paradise.
In writing the quartet, Messiaen strove to comprehend the spiritual immensity of a God-filled universe -a striving all the more poignant coming as it did from behind barbed-wire enclosures in a time of global war. On January 15, 1941, Quartet for the End oTiWwas premiered on old, broken instru?ments, in sub-zero temperatures, with Messiaen's five thousand fellow prisoners at Stalag 8-A as audience. He later recalled, "Never have I been listened to with such attention and understanding."

Suite from The Fairy Queen
Henry Purcell
Born c. 1659 in London
Died November 21, 1695 in Dean's Yard,
Henry Purcell contributed to virtually all genres of musical composition, but none so publically as the music he wrote for the London theatres. The English flocked to the theatres when they were reopened after the Restoration. Old plays by Shakespeare, Beaumont and Fletcher were "tidied up" and eventually supplemented by works by new playwrights. Music, dance and spectacle were gradually added to complement the drama. The English did not embrace the opera as it was understood on the Continent until much later -it was perhaps too lavish and extravagant an art form for the English, and on a practical level, too expensive. But the amount of music added to the plays became too significant to ignore, and the English writer Roger North invented the term "semi-opera" to describe these entertainments of "half Musick and half Drama." The leading parts continued to be spoken by actors, while vocal music was allotted to minor characters, whose contributions were essen?tially diversions, rarely essential to the action, and often quite irrelevant. To this was added instrumental music to accompany dance, set the mood, or accompany scene changes. Purcell provided the music for countless plays, including at least four semi-operas, among them The Fairy Queen, a seventeenth-century reworking of Shakespeare's Midsummer Night's Dream. Purcell's theatre music was enormously popular, and following his untimely death his family decided to capitalize on this popularity by publishing a collection of the instrumental music for many of his plays. It is from this collection that we draw The Fairy Queen suite with which
we open the program tonight. It includes an overture, dance tunes, act music and instrumental versions of some of the public's favorite songs.
Concerto in g minor for two violoncellos, rv531
Antonio Vivaldi
Born March 4, 1678 in Venice
Buried July 28, IJ41 in Vienna
Vivaldi wrote most of his numerous concertos (several hundred in all!) for his famous "all-girl" orchestra of the Ospedale della Pieta in Venice. The Pieta was a sort of orphanage at which gifted pupils received extensive musical training. The regular concerts performed by the students were among the tourist attractions of the city at that time, as described in the following account in 1668:
In Venice there are nunneries whose inmates play the organ and various instruments, and also sing so beautifully that nowhere else in the ivorld can one find such sweet and harmo?nious music. That is xvhy people come to Venice from all over the world to listen to this music of the angels . . .
Vivaldi was hired in 1704 as violin teacher at the institution, and from 1716-1740 was Maestro dei concerti, or director of the orchestra. One of his jobs was to supply concertos -at least two a month -to the Ospedale. The orchestras at his disposal were large and the numbers and types of instilments varied, allowing him to compose concertos for unusual instruments and com?binations of instruments. The Concerto for two cellos, unique in the baroque repertoire, is an example of this.
Concerto Grosso in B-flat Major, Op. 3, No. 2
George Frideric Handel
Born February 25, 1685 in Halle, Germany
Died April 14, 1759 in London
Handel's first set of published concertos, labelled "Opera Terza, " appeared in 1734. The concertos seem, however, to have been compiled without the assistance, and possibly not even the knowledge, of Handel himself. The London publisher John Walsh, a shrewed businessman, wished to take advantage of the popularity of both Handel and the Italian-style concerto grosso, so he set about com?piling a set of concertos from manuscript copies of works he had obtained, legitimately or otherwise, during his long association with Handel. We are, in retrospect, thankful to Walsh for preserving many works which otherwise may have been lost, particularly the wonderful second concerto, with its exquisitely beautiful slow movement and its rollicking final gavotte.
Suite for harpsichord in D Major, z.667
A Ground in d minor for harpsichord, z.d222
Fantasia upon a ground for three violins and continuo in D Major, z.731
The second half of the program opens with a small selection of Purcell's instrumental music for the chamber. Purcell's keyboard music is small in scale, consisting of a volume of miniature suites and several short pieces, many of them transcriptions. The Suite in D Major is the sixth of eight suites written
for Princess Anne, published posthumously for Purcell's wife Frances in 1696. The d-minor Ground is an adaptation for harpsi?chord of the air "Crown the altar" from the birthday ode for Queen Mary "Celebrate the festival," composed in 1693.
The large scale D-Major Fantasia for three violins is impressive proof of Purcell's talents. A masterful display of virtuosity, expressiveness and compositional skill, this piece was written when Purcell was but twenty years old. It is thought to be one of the first examples of the ground basses and chaconnes for which Purcell was particularly famous.
Orchestra Suite No. i for two oboes, bassoon and strings in C Major, bwv 1066
Johann Sebastian Bach
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany
Died July 28, 1J50 in Leipzig
The "invention" of the baroque orchestral suite is usually credited to Jean-Baptiste Lully, who would direct concert performances of an overture and selected dance movements .from one of his operas or ballets. German composers were quick to adopt this genre, and many examples can be found in the works of Fischer, Telemann, Fasch and others. The most famous examples are the four orchestral suites of J.S. Bach. In adapting the suite to German taste, Bach and his counterparts placed greater emphasis on the overture than the French, making it the focal point of the suite. It was greatly extended, particularly in the fast middle section, which often incorporated German fugato and Italian concerto elements. This is particularly true of the massive overture to Bach's first orchestral suite. This middle section is a veritable concerto grosso move?ment, scored for two oboes and bassoon with ripieno strings and continuo. The dance movements which follow show how
completely Bach mastered the styles of the French courtly dances. Only one non-French movement appears, that being the Italian "Forlana," an energetic dance which was immensely popular in Venice during that time.
Tafelmusik, Canada's orchestra on period instruments, was founded in 1979. Since the arrival of its Music Director and concert master Jeanne Lamon in 1981, Tafelmusik has achieved international recognition for its concerts and recordings. Based in Toronto, the ensemble has nineteen permanent members and is expanded as the need arises. All members of the orchestra are specialists in historical performance practice, and their collaboration results in performances renowned for their refinement and vitality.
Tafelmusik's success has taken it around the world, with regular tours across North America, Europe, and Asia. Tafelmusik also performs an annual forty-concert season at its home base, a historic church in downtown Toronto.
The ensemble has been associated with major record companies, and since 1990 has had an exclusive contract with Sony Classical. It has released some forty compact discs to widespread critical acclaim and numerous international awards.
Tafelmusik makes their UMS debut performance ivith this evening's concert.
Jeanne Lamon has specialized in the perfor?mance of baroque and classical music on period instruments since 1972. Music Director of Tafelmusik since 1981, Ms. Lamon has been praised by critics in Europe and North America for her virtuosity as a violinist and her strong musical leadership. Jeanne Lamon teaches at the University of Toronto, Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, and Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music. In November 1994 she received an honorary Doctor of Letters from York University.
This evening's performance marks Ms. Lamon's debut appearance under UMS auspices.

Youth Program
Thousands of school children annually attend UMS concerts as part of the UMS Youth Program, which began in the ig8giggo season with special one-hour performances for local fourth graders of Puccini's La Boheme by the New York City Opera National Company.
Now in its seventh year under the Education and Audience Development Department, the UMS Youth Program continues to expand, with performances by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater for middle and high school students, two opera performances for fourth graders by the New York City Opera National Company, a performance by Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Nonet, in-school workshops with a variety of other artists, as well as discounted tickets to every concert in the UMS season.
As part of its Ann Arbor residency, the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater will present a special youth program to middle and high school students, and a family performance, both on March ig, igg6.
On Friday February 24, igg6, 2700 fourth-graders will visit the Power Center for abbreviated one-hour performances of Verdi's La Traviata. These performances allow children to experience
opera that is fully-staged and fully-costumed with the same orchestra and singers that appear in the full-length performances.
On January 31, 1996, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Nonet will perform a special youth performance at the Michigan Theater.
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 will 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 arts at affordable prices.
