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

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor
The 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.

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.

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 stricdy 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 time served as acting president of the University, became the first president of the Society. The Society comprised the Choral Union and a concert series that featured local and visiting artists and ensembles. Today, the Choral Union refers not only to the chorus but the Musical Society's acclaimed 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 et Chloe and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection). In ig95, 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 1986.
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 1,129-seat auditorium was designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci.
POWER CENTER for 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 the 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 ig87janelle 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 1921 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 1920 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 a-m-

Francois-Frederic Chopin
Born c. March I, 1810 in Zelazowa Wola, Poland Died October iy, 1849 in Paris
The irresistible attraction of Chopin's music for people everywhere is akin to the intangible but the very real allure of, say, the Mona Lisa's smile. Its enigmatic charm is simply there. We are drawn to it, puzzled by it, and find it hauntingly beautiful. Leonardo da Vinci's great portrait has endured every conceivable scientific and aesthetic analysis yet the secret of its magnetism has never been found. So, too, with Chopin, the mystery remains. Articles in journals, chapters in scholarly works, and enure books -altogether more than ten thousand -have been written about Poland's Romantic genius and his works without uncovering the magic behind the man or the music. What remains is the undeniable effect of each hearing. The pro?gram at hand, fourth in Garrick Ohlsson's six recitals of Chopin's works and the first of the season, allows us an opportunity to consider once again the Chopin enigma and to expe?rience its magic personally.
Three Waltzes, Op. 34 open this recital in an exhilarating group -No. 1 in high spirits, No. 2 in a reflective mood, No. 3 in the realm of high jinks. In order, they bear dedications to ladies in Chopin's circle of socialite students -Countess Juza de Thun-Hohenstien, Baroness G. d'lvri and Baroness A. d'Eichtal (the last being the wife of an influential banker who, more than once, helped Chopin out of financial difficulties). The Published in 1838 as Valses brillantes, proved a boon to purchasers: in a burgeoning market, one obtained three new Chopin waltzes in a single cover for the first time. An amusing (but probably apocryphal) story holds that the skipping sections of Waltz No. 3 were inspired by the antics of a kitten on the keys of Chopin's piano.
Only one Tarantella comes to us from Chopin. He wrote it three years after the preceeding Waltzes, having noted the success of a particularly rollicking one by Rossini. Thus, Chopin's diverting little dervish-dance (harder to play that it sounds) is more an evocation of Rossini's Tarantella that of southern Italian tarantism (dancing madly after the bite of a tarantula). Chopin's letters do not reveal whether he knew that his friend Ferdinand Hiller had a good Tarantella to his credit or that, the year before, Liszt had already written a piece called TaranteUes napolitaines, or that the salon pianists Franz Hunten and Henri Herz also had published then lesser, but highly saleable example of the dance.
Mazurkas reflect another aspect of Chopin's fascination with dance music. He is known to have written at least sixty of them, during his brief life. Each is a miniature with details which Chopin's friend Berlioz called "unbeliev?able." Moreover, these works are, in Han Holoman's memorable phrase, the "first civilized mazurkas;" Chopin's adaptations for the piano transform the rustic Polish folk dance and music into a high art form. They evidently meant a lot to their compos?er as one of his pupils, Wilhelm von Lenz, tells us, "Chopin's mazurkas are the diary of his soul's journey through the socio-political territories of his Sarmatian dream-world! There his playing was truly at home, in them resided Chopin's originality as a pianist." So, as we hear the Four Mazurkas, Op. 41, our pleasure is enhanced by the knowledge that, although classical forms underlie each (No. 1 is a kind of little rondo, while Nos. 2, 3 and 4 are a-b-a form), their expression is a matter of the man's soul.
The Scherzo No. 4 finds that soul in highest spirits. The work's clear rhythmic and harmonic schemes, radiant major key and zephyrs of pianistic delight banish the mysterious moodiness of the Second Waltz and Mazurka played earlier in this program. There are no poetic or dramatic associations
to its unison opening, to its episodic progress or to its scintillating Coda. This is just a scherzo -a musical diversion, amusement, game or jest; three beats to the bar, light?weight and quick. "Cannons buried beneath flowers," was Schumann's opinion, who never wrote such quicksilver music. Only in the minor-key central section does Chopin remind us once more -this time beautifully not ominously -of his darker side. Published in 1843, this splendid whirlwind of pleasure was not his last, for Chopin would include scherzi in his Piano Sonata No. 3 (1844) and in his Cello Sonata (1847).
Four Impromptus were Chopin's contribu?tion to the development of a type of compo?sition inaugurated by the Bohemian composer Jan Vorisek in 1822. Based on the idea of spontaneous inspiration, these pieces with their simple a-b-a form and appafendy extemporized figures exercise a peculiar charm. Impromptu No. 3, published in 1842, is the least played of the four though just as beguiling as the rest (although it is unusually difficult to perform).
The Prelude in c-sharp minor stands apart from Chopin's great set of twenty-four. Penned at the request of the publisher Sclessinger, "It is short, as he wished," wrote Chopin. The year was 1841 and Chopin was staying at the home of his lover, the writer known as George Sand. That lady, however, did not receive its dedication, for Chopin had plans to use the little gem as a surprise for the young Princess Elisabeth Czernicheff (the spelling of whose name eluded him). Mme. Sand also missed out with regard to the next two pieces, written during the same period. The composer dedicated the first of these to the Princess de Beauvau and the second to his pupil Mile. Friederike Mullen
Chopin's Polonaise, Op. 44 expands the grand old dance form of aristocratic Poland to include a mazurka between the stormy drama of its embattled outer sections. "A flower between two abysses" asked critic
Hames Huneker, borrowing a phrase which Liszt used in another context. As for Liszt himself, he said that the pages of this Polonaise evoked "a lurid hour that precedes a hurricane." Its close, for him, was an ebbing away of life before a final "convulsive shudder." The work's musical weight is tremendous, "a confession from the dark depths of a self-tortured soul," according to Huneker, and not to be taken lightly.
The Allegro de concert, on the other hand, is slimmer in substance but even more demanding of the performer. "Perilous" barely describes its vaulting skips, spidery passagework, and knucklebearing double notes. Any performance of this piece is something of a sporting proposition. There are pitfalls everywhere, not merely technical but musical throughout, because Chopin has expected his piano to be both orchestra and soloist. The work was cobbled together from material for the first movement of either a never-completed concerto for two pianos or a third piano concerto -no one knows which for sure -sketched nine years before. It has the structure of a conventional, but telescoped concerto movement heard as a solo, something which both Schumann and Alkan did -so the idea was not radical. But it is certainly rare to encounter this virtuoso's show-piece, which is among the very few works by Chopin almost never played in public.
Four Mazurkas, Op. 33 inhabit a wider public domain than the Allegro, retaining their original popularity to the present day. Published in 1838, they exhibit more of their composer's endless inventiveness with dance forms. While Nos. 1, 2 and 3 have a simple a-b-a form, No. 4 is the strange bird in this nest; its form is a-b-a-b-c-d-a. Von Lenz tells us that Chopin taught this oddity as a ballade, "stressing the narrative quality," treating the final section as if bells were tolling in the bass then, with the last chords, sweeping "away the consort of ghosts."
Of greater interest, at least circumstantially, are Nos. 2 and 3 -which the celebrated singer Pauline Viardot (herself once a piano student of Liszt) turned into songs with lyrics adapted from French poems to them. Eventually, she published fifteen of these mazurka arrangements for vocal duet and solo per?formance (which somewhat miffed Chopin). Then there was the matter of No. 3 and the renowned opera composer Meyerbeer, who heard Chopin teaching the work to von Lenz and argued over the meter. "That's in ," Meyerbeer said. Chopin retorted, "It's in '." Back and forth went the banter as tempers rose. Chopin pushed his pupil aside. 'Three times he played the piece," von Lenz tells us, "counting aloud and stamping out the beat with his foot; he was made beside himself!" The men parted on bad terms.
Three Waltzes, Op. 64 reached their public for the first time in 1847 and have magnetized listeners' ears ever since. Who has not been charmed by No. 1 's delicate swiftness and Mme. Sand's claim that its inspiration was her little dog chasing its tail Who has not been moved by the sad refrain of No. 2 as it alternates so eloquently with other sections -sometimes faster than it, but no less moody And who has not felt the odd rhythmic sway of No. 3 as its subtle line halts over and over on the last beat of the bar This set of dances-not-for-dancing is really a kind of triptych, each panel of which can be imagined as a scene from Chopin's inner life, undergoing change as his relationship with Sand entered its regret?table twilight. No. 1, which Chopin said "should not unroll like a ball of yarn" (He did not mention any dog running in circles), is dedicated to the beautiful Countess Dalphine Potocki who may have had an affair with the composer. No. 2 bears the name of the Baroness Charlotte Rothschild, wife of Chopin's banker friend, while No. 3 is inscribed to a wealthy socialite, the Countess Catherine Bronicka.
The Two Nocturnes, Op. 48 were published in 1841 (the year Chopin was dedicating pieces to women right and left while staying under Sand's roof at Nohant). We discover the epic grandeur of darkness in No. 1 and the hallucinatory effect of ornamentation in slow-motion in No. 2. These are extraordinary Nocturnes. Mile. Laura Deperre, a French admiral's daughter who received dieir dedi?cation, must have found them astonishing. In No. 1, the expected evening mood of the first page turns chorale-like, then duinderous, before returning over surging, urgent triplet chords only to lose itself in the shadows of night The outer sections of No. 2 seem made from lines of the continuously ornamental type Chopin used in certain of his Impromptus and Etudes -but moving ever so much more slowly. Figurations this drawn out never quite become melodies although they seem to try. The central section, according to Chopin, should be played as a recitative: "A tyrant commands," he said to his pupil Gutmann, "and the other asks for mercy." Perhaps there was a wry smile behind these goings-on, as Chopin recalled the slow movement of Beethoven's Fourth Concerto -where opposites are juxtaposed with spellbinding effect.
A bizarre, explosive atmosphere, one laden with additional tension and expressed in relendess movement, even violence, pervades the final work on this program, Chopin's Scherzo No. 1. Begun the year Chopin arrived in Paris, 1831, it may have been born in the wild feelings which consumed the 2 i-year-old composer when his country, Poland, had been invaded by Russian troops and its capital, Warsaw, had been taken in bloody conflict. Chopin's diary records his anxiety:
The suburbs destroyed and burned. Russia reigns over tlie world. God! Are you real Yes, you exist, but why do you not take revenge Are not the crimes committed by the Russians sufficient Or, are you Russia
My poor Father! Does this brave man suffer from hunger Perhaps lie has nothing with which to buy bread for my Mother My sisters may be victims of the enraged Russian soldiers. . . .
From this Scherzo, produced in the same period as his Revolutionary Etude, we understand how Chopin used composition to vent his feelings even further. Its outer sections are veritable tornado-gusts of music, white its serene central melody is an old Polish Christmas song, a lullaby for the infant Jesus. One can only imagine the poignancy of this juxtaposition in Chopin's mind.
Notes by Frank Cooper
Mr. Cooper teaches at the New World School of the Arts in
Miami and at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida.
Pianist Garrick Ohlsson is an interpreter of great orig?inality, whose playing com?bines supreme elegance with extraordinary tonal projection. These qualities have placed him among the ranks of the world's foremost pianists.
A pianist of enormous musical and tech?nical resource, Mr. Ohlsson commands an unusually wide and eclectic repertoire, which ranges from the works of Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, and Brahms, to twentieth-century masters such as Busoni, Prokofiev, Ravel, Rachmaninoff, and Bartok. His concerto repertoire alone numbers some seventy works for piano and orchestra.
Mr. Ohlsson is considered to be one of today's finest interpreters of the music of Frederic Chopin. In January 1995, Mr. Ohlsson embarked on this six-concert series devoted exclusively to Chopin's works for
solo piano. These performances are taking place in Ann Arbor under University Musical Society auspices, at suny Purchase, and at Alice Tully Hall under the auspices of Lincoln Center's distinguished "Great Performers" Series. In addition, this season, Mr. Ohlsson will initiate the complete cycle in North York (Toronto) Canada. He has also programmed all-Chopin recitals in Buffalo, at Bucknell University and George Mason University, as well as recitals in Paris and in the Czech and Slovak Republics.
Mr. Ohlsson's orchestral appearances in North America and Europe this season will include performances in Liverpool, London and Birmingham with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra; in Monte Carlo with die Monte Carlo orchestra; in Paris and Amsterdam with the Royal Philhar?monic Orchestra; in Prague with the Czech Philharmonic; at Carnegie Hall in New York with the Detroit Symphony; with the Cleveland and Philadelphia Orchestras; the Adanta, Houston, Jacksonville, Milwaukee, Phoenix, Portland (or), San Francisco and Seattle Symphonies; and the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra.
A chamber musician who has collaborated with such ensembles as the Cleveland, Emerson, Takacs, and Tokyo String Quartets, Mr. Ohlsson has made numerous chamber music appearances, most recendy a concert featuring the Franck Quintet in f minor with the Guarneri Quartet at New York's Alice Tully Hall in April 1994, and a violinpiano recital with Gil Shaham at the Colorado Music Festival in August 1995. Together with violinist Jorja Fleezanis and cellist Michael Grebanier, he is a founding member of the San Francisco-based fog Trio.
Mr. Ohlsson is a prolific recording artist who can be heard on the Arabesque, Angel, Delos, Nonesuch, Telarc and Virgin Classics labels. He is currently recording the com?plete works for solo piano of Frederic Chopin for Arabesque; Volume Six, the
Nocturnes was released this year.
Mr. Ohlsson recorded the Charles Wuorinen Piano Concerto No. 3 with the San Francisco Orchestra under Herbert Blomstedt on Nonesuch and George Gershwin's Rhapsody in 5uewith the Minnesota Orchestra under Edo de Waart for the Virgin Classic label. Other releases on Arabesque include recordings of Haydn's three "London" Sonatas and a Beethoven Sonata disc. Mr. Ohlsson's first Arabesque recording, the Complete Piano Sonatas of Carl Maria von Weber, was nominated as "Solo Instrumental Record of the Year" by Ovation Magazine in 1989. Mr. Ohlsson's Telarc recording of the Busoni Concerto with The Cleveland Orchestra under Christoph von Dohnanyi was nominated for a Grammy as "Best Classical Album of the Year" in 1990; and his Delos International recording of Henri Lazarofs 'Tableaux for Piano and Orchestra" with the Seattle Symphony under Gerard Schwarz received an additional Grammy nomination in 1991 as "Best Classical Performance by an Instrumentalist with Orchestra."
Mr. Ohlsson was born in White Plains,
New York where be began his piano studies at the age of eight. He attended the Westchester Conservatory of Music and at thirteen he entered The Juilliard School. In high school, Mr. Ohlsson demonstrated an extraordinary aptitude for mathematics and languages, but the concert stage remained his true career objective.
Mr. Ohlsson's musical development has been influenced in completely different ways by a succession of distinguished teachers, most notably Claudio Arrau, Olga Barabini, Tom Lishman, Sascha Gorodnitzki, Rosina Lhevinne, and Irma Wolpe. Although he won First Prizes at the 1966 Busoni Competition in Italy and the 1968 Montreal Piano Competition, it was his 1970 triumph at the Chopin Competition in Warsaw, where he won the Gold Medal, that brought him world-wide recognition as one of the finest pianists of his generation. Since that time, he has made nearly a dozen tours of Poland where to this day he remains virtually a national hero. Mr. Ohlsson was awarded the Avery Fisher Prize in spring 1994.
When not on tour, Mr. Ohlsson divides his time between New York City and San Francisco.
This afternoon's recital marks Mr. Ohlsson's fourth UMS appearance.

Appointed Music Director of the University Musical Society Choral Union in 1993, he is the tenth conductor to hold this position in the ensemble's 117-year history. In the past two seasons, he has prepared the ums Choral Union for several notable performances given by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Neemejarvi and Jerzy Semkow, and by the Toledo Symphony under the direction of Andrew Massey.
In addition to these performances of Handel's Messiah with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Sheets conducts the Choral Union in performances of Bach's Mass in b-minor with the Toledo Symphony in March 1996.

As chorusmaster in 1988 for Long Beach Opera's highly acclaimed American premiere of Szymanowski's King Roger, his efforts on behalf of the chorus received accolades from critics on four con?tinents. He was engaged in the same role in 1992 for that company's staging of Simon Boccanegra, where the chorus again received singular plaudits.
Thomas Sheets is also Music Director or the 120-voice Toledo Symphony Chorale. He received the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Southern California and has held appointments as Director of Choral Activities at several colleges and universities.

Early in her career, while a Fulbright Scholar in Paris studying with Jean Langlais, she presented the world premiere of his American Suite (later revised as his Troisieme Symphonie). During concert tours of France and the United Kingdom she has presented recitals in major churches and concert halls including Cathedrale St. Maurice, Angers, Cathedrale St. Pierre, Montpellier, St. David's Hall, Cardiff, Southwell Minster, and Coventry Cathedral.

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 Symphony Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus 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 perfor?mances of Handel's Messiah each December. Two years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition through its appoint?ment 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 com?mercial recording, Tchaikovsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records in October of that year. Last season, the ensemble joined forces with the dso for subscription perfor?mances of Ravel's Daphnis el Chloe and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection). In 1995, the Choral Union established an artistic associa?tion with the Toledo Symphony, inaugurating the new partnership with a performance of Britten's War Requiem under the baton of Andrew Massey. This season, the Choral Union will again join the Toledo Symphony for performances of Bach's b-minor Mass under conductor Thomas Sheets, and the Berlioz Requiem with 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.

The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra plays a leader?ship role in enriching the musical culture of Ann Arbor and the surrounding area by attracting, inspiring, and educating the most diverse audience possible. The Symphony fosters a growing appreciation for orchestral music and for regional talent through innovative programming and community collaboration and outreach that provide an ongoing standard of excellence.
What began in 1928 as an all-volunteer orchestra which performed a brief season of free community concerts, has grown to an all-professional, resident symphony which performs a season of six subscription concerts from September through April at the historic Michigan Theater, as well as a youth concert and numerous ensembles that play in area schools and senior centers.
The Ann Arbor Symphony welcomes back current ConductorMusic Director Samuel Wong, to his fourth season. A protege of Kurt Masur and Zubin Mehta, Maestro Wong was appointed Music Director to the aaso in 1992. One of the most exciting and gifted conductors of his generation, Mr. Wong is continually sought after as a guest conductor throughout North America, Europe and Asia. Under Maestro Wong, the aaso has enjoyed profound artistic growth, becoming an orchestra that, according to the Ann Arbor Nexus, is "in excellent hands and... on the cutting edge."
The Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra collaborates with other local organizations including the University Musical Society and the Ann Arbor Cantata Singers and showcases established and up-and-coming local talent -both in the orchestra and as soloists. Recent Michigan soloists include Pulitzer-prize winner William Bolcom and soprano Joan Morris, the Ann Arbor Cantata Singers,
ten-year-old violin soloist Huei Min Lee, the Chenille Sisters, tenor Mark Beudert, University of Michigan School of Music faculty Anton Nel, Harry Sargous, and Erling Bengtsson, and University of Michigan theater major Job Christensen.
The aaso's Education and Outreach Program has received both regional and national acclaim from the National Endowment for the Arts and the naacp. This year their Youth Mentorship Program will work with over 118 youngsters from Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti to enrich their musical growth through the concert experience. This season marks the beginning of the Docent Program through which ensembles and speakers take informative and entertain?ing lectures about upcoming Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra concerts to area schools and senior centers.
The aaso Board of Directors is working on the shortand long-range goals developed through their strategic plan created last season. Community leaders, artistic advisors, and orchestra personnel are contributing their ideas and energies and looking forward to continued artistic and financial growth that is responsive to the needs and desires of our community. The aaso will continue to fulfill its mission with enthusiasm, contributing not only to the cultural life of the Ann Arbor area and the state of Michigan, but to the field of great orchestral music in America.

Youth Program
Thousands of school children annually attend UMS concerts as part of the UMS Youth Program, which began in the 19891990 season with special 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 die 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 19, 1996.
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. To learn more about how you can take advantage of the various programs offered, call the Education and Audience Development Director at 313.747.11 74.

UMS Ushers
Absolute chaos. That is what would ensue without ushers to help concertgoers find their seats at UMS performances. Ushers serve the essential function in assisting patrons with seating and distributing program books. With their help, concerts begin peacefully and pleasantly.
The UMS Usher Corps comprises 275 individuals who volunteer their time to make concertgoing easier. Music lovers from the community and the university constitute this valued group. The all-volunteer group attends an orientation and training session each fall. Ushers are responsible for working at every UMS performance in a specific hall (Hill, Power, or Rackham) for the entire concert season.
The ushers must enjoy their work, because 85 of them return to volunteer each year. In fact some ushers have served for 30 years or longer. Bravi Ushers!

Five years ago, UMS began publishing expanded program books that included advertising and detailed information about UMS programs and services. As a result, advertising revenue now pays for all printing and design costs.
UMS advertisers have written to tell us how much they appreciate advertising in the UMS pro?gram books to reach you, our world-class audience. We hope that you will patronize the businesses who advertise with UMS and tell them that you saw their ad in the UMS program book so that we can continue to bring you the program notes, artists' biographies, and general information that illuminate each UMS presentation. For information about how your business can become a UMS advertiser, call (313) 747-4020.
