UMS Concert Program, Tuesday Dec. 05, 1995 To Jan. 11, 1996: University Musical Society: 1995-1996 Fall/winter - Tuesday Dec. 05, 1995 To Jan. 11, 1996 --

1995-1006 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 die 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.

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 with the adult accompanying them, may be asked by an usher to leave the auditorium. Please use discretion in choosing to bring a child. Remember, everyone must have a ticket, regardless of age.
A Modern Distraction Please turn off or suppress electronic beeping and chiming digital watches or pagers during performances.
Cameras and Recorders Cameras and recording devices are strictly prohibited in the auditoria.
Odds and Ends A silent auditorium with an 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 diis 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, die Musical Society has built a reputation of quality and tradition that is maintained and strengdi-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 Jar vi 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 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.
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 tile University for a suitable auditorium for holding lectures, concerts, and other university gatherings. Mill 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.
Currently, 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.
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
T,he 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 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 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.

In 1990, in the twentieth anniversary year of the publication of the book In The Night Kitchen, we formed The Night Kitchen, a theater company devoted entirely to the development of quality performing arts productions for children and adults. As in our books, which have crossed barriers and overcome conventional thought, we hope The Night Kitchen will contribute significantly to the world of children's theater.
We would like The Night Kitchen to create and produce material that expands the range of performing arts that reach children and adults. We both share the conviction that children deserve much more in the area of cultural enrichment.
The Night Kitchen is an extraordinary opportunity to explore many media and to extend the boundaries of what is considered suitable for children. We hope to reinvigorate all forms of live theater for children with the same passion and energy we bring to our books. The Night Kitchen commissions original material and develops new productions of existing works including plays, musicals, ballets, and operas, and collaborates in their presentations with theaters nationwide.
Maurice SendakArthur Yorinks
Maurice Sendak (Book and Lyrics, Sets and Costumes, Director) is generally acknowledged as the leading visionary in children's literature today. For more than forty years, the books he has written and illustrated have nurtured children and adults alike and have challenged established ideas about what children's liter?ature is and should be. His more than eighty books have sold more than seven million copies worldwide and are available in over a dozen languages.
In the performing arts, Mr. Sendak has designed many highly acclaimed productions
including Mozart's The Magic Flute and Mmn,Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen, and Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker ballet for both theater and film.
Really Rosie was born in 1975 when Mr. Sendak adapted his books The Sign on Rosie's Door and The Nutshell Library for an animated TV special aired on CBS. In 1980 Really Rosie became an Off-Broadway musical hit and is now brought to you redesigned and directed for the first time by Mr. Sendak.
Carole King (Composer) is a member of both the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters Hall of Fame (with Gerry Goffin). A recipient of the prestigious National Academy of Songwriters' Lifetime Achieve?ment Award, she has been acclaimed as the most successful female songwriter of all time.
Ms. King's album, Tapestry, stayed on the charts for nearly six years -becoming, at the time, the biggest selling album in the history of the recording business. To this day it is the best-selling female solo album of all time.
Arthur Yorinks (Co-founder and Associate Artistic Director of The Night Kitchen) has written for opera, ballet, film and theater and is the author of many critically acclaimed children's books, including Louis the Fish and the Caldecott Medal winner Hey, AL Mr. Yorinks has been involved in the theater for more than twenty years. He wrote and performed as a member of the American Mime Theater and served as the artistic director of The Moving Theater in New York. In 1985 Mr. Yorinks was Philip Glass's librettist for the opera The Juniper Tree, which has had numerous productions in Europe and the United States. His collaboration with Philip Glass continued, in 1988 with the opera The Fall of the House of Usher. Since its premiere, this work has been seen all over the world, including Germany, Australia, Italy, and Wales. Mr. Yorinks's most recent book for children is The Miami Giant, illustrated by Maurice Sendak.

Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 4 in a minor, Op. 23
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born c. December 15, ijjo in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 182J in Vienna
In 180001, Beethoven (who had recently finished his First Symphony) wrote two violin sonatas, commissioned by the Viennese banker Count Moritz von Fries. One is the beloved "Spring" Sonata (Op. 24), the other the present work, which may only be less well-known because no one has given it a nickname. The two sonatas were initially to be published together but were later separated and assigned consecutive opus numbers.
This pair of sonatas is not the only case where two Beethoven compositions, written for the same medium at the same time, are total opposites in character (see the Fifth and Sixth Symphonies, for example). While the "Spring" Sonata is gentle and lyrical throughout, the a-minor work displays the stormier side of Beethoven's personality. In many ways, it foreshadows the dramatic idiom of the "Kreutzer" Sonata, written only two years later.
Although Mozart's influence can still be felt in Op. 23, as it can in so much early Beethoven, the sonata is animated by passions that are unmistakably Beethoven's own. For proof, one need look no further than the very first measure, where an emphatic motif opens the piece in medias res ("in the middle of things"). The entire movement is agitated and full of motion; therefore, the quiet ending comes as something of a surprise.
The second movement is not the slow instrumental aria one might expect. It is, rather, in a medium tempo, half slow move?ment and half scherzo but really written in sonata form, complete with augrafo transition (a section where the voices imitate one another), a substantial development and full recapitulation. Its tone is mostly playful,
with only a few more serious moments.
The third movement is in rondo form (in a rondo, a principal theme alternates with a series of episodes). The rondo theme has the same tension and restlessness that we encountered in the first movement. Note a sudden interruption in the middle of the theme, a brief Adagio phrase played in turn by the violin and the piano. It is the first appearance of an idea that will recur in a memorable solo oboe passage in the first movement of the Fifth Symphony. There are three episodes: one consisting of short staccato notes played by the violin and the piano in alternation, the next of long legato phrases represented by both instruments together. (The harmonic progressions underlying these two episodes are actually very similar.) In the third episode, the staccato rhythms of the first are combined with vigorous rapid motion and some typical Beethovenian off-beat accents. The first two episodes are briefly recalled before a final return of the rondo theme. This movement ends softly like the first did; it is a sign of Beethoven's genius that the effect is just as surprising as it was the first time.
Sonata for Violin and Piano in F Major, Op. 57
Born September 8, 1841 in Miihlhausen
Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
Aside from the popular Sonatina in G, a product of Dvorak's American years, the present composition is the composer's only sonata for any instrument. It was written in the space of two weeks, between March 3 and 17, 1880. The previous year, Dvorak had composed his Violin Concerto, and sent it to Joseph Joachim, one of the greatest violinists of the time who had advised both
Max Bruch and Johannes Brahms on their violin concertos. The opportunity for Dvorak to discuss the concerto with Joachim in person came in the spring of 1880, during a visit to Berlin. By that time, Dvorak was able to show the violinist his most recent work as well. While Joachim was highly critical of the concerto (and made Dvorak work on it for another two years), he was immediately pleased with the sonata upon reading it through with the composer. It is not known, however, whether Joachim ever performed either work in public.
Dvorak had learned a great deal from Brahms, who was something of a mentor figure and did more than anyone else to help launch the younger composer's career. The development of the themes and the handling of the rhythm in the F-Major sonata are often Brahmsian. In the first movement, for instance, a group of large blocks of chords suddenly appears amidst some more fluid melodic activity. The second movement is based, to no small extent, on a subtle interplay of and meters. Brahms was especially fond of both techniques. Yet the melodies themselves are pure Dvorak -that is to say, pure Czech, as in the second subject of the first movement or in the lively dance tune in the finale. Dvorak was quite unique in his ability to use folk-like melody types to build large-scale classical forms.
The first movement opens with a group of dreamy, somewhat amorphous motifs. In the course of the movement, these motifs gradually receive a sharper profile. The soft closing chords follow an unusual type of harmonic progression called "plagal," also found at the analogous moment in the Sonatina in G (Op. 100).
The second movement is a nocturnal song, intimate and mysterious. After a brief development that adds some rhythmic excitement in the form of a characteristic dotted figure, the recapitulation brings back the pensive mood of the beginning.
The last movement's main theme is in the rhythm of the polka, the most popular Czech folk dance. A second melody moves in slower note values but still preserves the dance character. There is a brief section where the folk dance rhythms are developed using contrapuntal methods; this does not serve to weigh the music down but rather to realize its inherent potentials and, ultimately, to add to the fun.
Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano
Born December 10, 1822 in Liege, Belgiun
Died November 8, 1890 in Paris
For many years, Cesar Franck worked as an organist at Sainte-Clotilde, which was not one of Paris's most prestigious churches. His father had destined him for the career of a traveling piano virtuoso a la Franz Liszt. These dreams, however, did not come true, and Franck had to settle for a less than glamorous existence. His first major break did not come until he was fifty; in 1872, he was appointed to the Paris Conservatoire as a professor of organ. But even that did not necessarily mean success as a composer. His large-scale oratorios and other sacred works failed to make an impression. It was only during the last decade of his life that he wrote the series of masterpieces (including the Violin Sonata, the Symphony, and the String Quartet) for which he is remembered to this day.
The Violin Sonata was written in 1886, as a wedding present for the great violinist Eugene Ysaye (1858-1931), like Franck a native of Liege, Belgium. The first public performance was given by Ysaye and pianist Leon tine Bordes-Pene in Brussels on December 16, 1886, at a concert devoted to Franck's works. The Sonata had an enormous success.
The director of the Brussels Conservatoire congratulated the composer with the words: "You have transformed chamber music: thanks to you a new vision of the future has been revealed to our eyes."
The director was not exaggerating. Franck's only contribution to the solo violin literature was also a unique achievement in that it introduced into chamber music certain techniques never previously used in that medium. Inspired by Liszt's symphonic poems, Franck linked the four movements of the Sonata together by a network of thematic recurrences. The characters of the themes are sometimes fundamentally transformed in this process. Franck also used counter?point more extensively than most Romantic composers -in part because, as an organ player, he was deeply immersed in the music of J.S. Bach. Moreover, Franck had been touched by the style of Richard Wagner, who had died in 1883 but was still the most con?troversial modern composer in Europe. In the Violin Sonata, Franck repeatedly used a variant of the famous 'Tristan" chord. He combined all these influences, however, with a boundless melodic invention all his own.
The Sonata has an unusual movement sequence. In most sonatas, the longest and weightiest movement comes at the beginning. In the Franck sonata, this movement stands in second place, preceded by a dreamy "Allegretto ben moderato." The passionate second movement is in the key of d minor that was often used to depict tempestuous emotions. The third movement is a "Recitativo-Fantasia" that, in what was an extraordinary move in 1886, entirely dispenses with the idea of a main tonal center. The key changes constantly as the violin plays two unaccompanied cadenzas, separated by a nostalgic recollection of the first movement's opening melody on the piano. The movement continues with an "aria" for violin that is in turn lyrical and dramatic, with a molto lento e mesto ("very slow and sad") ending. Finally,
the fourth movement crowns the Sonata with a real tour de force: its initial melody is played by the two instruments in canon -that is, the melodic lines are the same, with the violin starting one measure after the piano. The remaining themes come from the third movement, turning the "aria" into a major dramatic outburst. A recapitulation of the canon theme and a short, exuberant coda ends this great sonata.
Notes by Peter Laki Cleveland, Ohio, 1995.
t age 23, violinist Gil Shaham is alread) internationally recognized by noted critics and leaders of the world's most celebrated
i[ii!inii!i ensembles as a veteran virtuoso of the instrument. Since his 1981 debut with the Jerusalem Symphony conducted by the late Alexander Schneider, he has been acclaimed consistently for his performances with the New York Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the San Francisco, Montreal and Detroit symphonies, among other major North American orchestras. Abroad, his achievements are equally outstanding, covering concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic, l'Orchestre de Paris, the Hamburg Philharmonic, the Israel Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, Japan's nhk Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic, the Philharmonia Orchestra and the London Symphony, with which, under the baton of Michael Tilson Thomas, he made two dramatic, highly praised appearances in 1989 as substitute, on a day's notice, for an ailing Itzhak Perlman. Recitals and other orchestral engagements have
taken him to music capitals worldwide, and his summer festival appearances have included the Hollywood Bowl, Ravinia, Aspen, Schleswig-Holstein, Waterloo and Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival.
Mr. Shaham's current schedule remains distinguished and wide-ranging. His summer season in 1994 included performances with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Boston Symphony at Tanglewood and the symphony orchestras of Buenos Aires and Santiago, as well as appearances at the Mostly Mozart Festival, the Colorado Music Festival and Chicago's Grant Park. His 1994-95 season is highlighted by concerts with the Philadelphia Orchestra (including a Carnegie Hall performance), the New York Philharmonic, the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra (also at Carnegie Hall), the Minnesota Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of Dallas, San Francisco and Toronto, among others. Abroad, his schedule includes engagements with the London Philharmonic, both in London and on a tour of France, the Dresden Staatskapelle, the Czech Philharmonic and the Lausanne Chamber Orchestra. Also planned are recital tours in both Europe and North
America, and a tour of the Far East.
An exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist, Gil Shaham has recorded concertos by Mendelssohn, Bruch, Paganini, Saint-Saens, Tchaikovsky and Sibelius with Guiseppe Sinopoli leading the Philharmonic Orchestra and the New York Philharmonic; Wieniawski's Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 and Sarasate's Zigeunerweisen with Lawrence Foster and the London Symphony; and solo discs devoted to music by Schumann, Richard Strauss, Elgar, Ravel, Franck, Kreisler, Paganini, Saint-Saens and Sarasate. His most recent releases include the best-selling Paganini for Two album, a collaboration with guitarist Goran Sollscher, a disc pairing the Barber and Korngold concertos with Andre Previn leading the London Symphony, and a recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
Gil Shaham was born in Champaign-Urbana, Illinois, in 1971. In 1973 he moved with his parents to Israel where at the age of seven he began violin studies with Samuel Bernstein of the Rubin Academy of Music and was immediately granted annual scholar?ships by the America-Israel Cultural Foundation. In 1980, while studying with Haim Taub in Jerusalem, he made debuts with the Jerusalem Symphony and the Israel Philharmonic. That same year he began his studies with Dorothy DeLay and Jens Ellerman at Aspen. In 1982, after taking first prize in Israel's Claremont Competition, he became a scholarship student at Juilliard, where he has worked widi Ms. DeLay and Hyo Kang.
Mr. Shaham was awarded the presti?gious Avery Fisher Career Grant in 1990. He is a graduate of the Horace Mann School in New York City and has also attend?ed Columbia University. He plays a 1699 Stradivarius named after Countess Polignac, who was reputedly the French mistress of Benjamin Franklin while he was America's first ambassador to France.
This evening's performance marks Mr. Shaham's second appearance under UMS auspices.

At age seven, she came to New York with her family and began to study with Nancy Stessin. One year later, she was accepted at The Juilliard School as a scholar?ship student of Herbert Stessin.
During the 1993-94 season, Ms. Shaham appeared with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra at Avery Fisher Hall, with the Albany Symphony, and in recital at Boston's Gardner Museum and at Caramoor, among others. During the summer of 1994, she performed at both the Spoleto Festival in Italy and the Davos Chamber Music Festival in Switzerland. Her current season began with her first tour of Japan, and is also high?lighted by concerts with the San Diego Symphony and several American recitals, among them her Chicago debut at Ravinia. She also returns to the Gardner Museum for a performance of Mozart's Concerto in A Major, K. 488.
Previous recital appearances have taken her to the Herkulessaal in Munich, the Alte Oper in Frankfurt, Thejuilliard School, the Mannes College of Music and the home of the Israeli Ambassador in Washington, D.C.
Ms. Shaham is a graduate of the Horace Mann School in New York, and Juilliard's Pre-College Division. She is currently con?tinuing her studies at Columbia University and Thejuilliard School. She spends part of each summer at the Aspen Music Festival and School, where she has given several per?formances in the Music Tent.

Quartet in G Major, K. 387
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Born January 27, IJ56 in Salzburg
Died December 5, iygi in Vienna
The Quartet in G Major (K. 387) is the first in the series of six quartets dedicated to Mozart's friend and teacher, Joseph Haydn, hence their somewhat confusing title: 1 4 Mozart's "Haydn Quartets." It is apparent from the opening phrase that Mozart had attained the rarefied realm of pure quartet writing. As Dunhill notes, "It is not a har?monized melody: the thought itself is a four-part thought." This is the essence of what Mozart learned from Haydn, but as a master from a master, not merely as an imitator. Nowhere in this flawless quartet is there any evidence of the "long and laborious study" Mozart spoke of in the letter in which he dedicated these works to Haydn. However, examination of the manuscript now in the British Museum has shown that in all of Mozart's "Haydn" quartets there are far more changes, revisions, and new beginnings that in most of his other works.
The development section of the first movement is so filled with felicitous ideas there is no need for any novelty in their recapitulation, nor for any coda. As in the A-Major Quartet, the middle movements are transposed. The minuet is a miniature sonata allegro form, delicious in its wittiness, the first theme containing a bizarre dynamic treatment of ascending and descending chromatic lines. The finale, a remarkable achievement in musical architecture, opens fugally with a four-note subject closely akin to the one used in the finale of the Jupiter Symphony. The simply-harmonized lilting dance that follows provides an ideal foil.
Quartet No. 2
Born December 28, 1896 in Brooklyn, New York
Died March 16, 1985 in Princeton, New Jersey
Roger H. Sessions was born in Brooklyn in 1896. Educated at Harvard and Yale, he received a decisive stimulus as composer from his study with Ernest Bloch. It was under Bloch that he taught for four years at the Cleveland Institute of Music. Some years of residence in Europe followed. In 1925, he joined the faculty of Princeton University. A decade later, he went to the University of California at Berkeley, to serve as head of the music department there. In 1953 he moved again to Princeton, where he served as Conant Professor of Music until his death. As composer, teacher, author, Roger Sessions was one of the most important and respected American figures in the contemporary international music scene. Among his many achievements and honors is his service for some years as the president of the United States section of the International Society for Contemporary Music.
Roger Sessions' powerful and moving ? Second String Quartet (1951) was written sixteen years after his memorable first com?position in the quartet form. The Second Quartet consists of five movements, played without pause. The first, marked "Lento," is a double fugue which employs a multi?tude of contrapuntal devices, and yet is so personal and expressive that it is profoundly moving. The rigor of the fugal form and Sessions's expressive intent perfectly comple?ment each other. The second movement is a serious and dramatic "Allegro appassionato." The lyrical "Andante tranquillo" that follows is a theme and five variations. The fourth movement is a swift scherzo with trio; and the quartet concludes with a reflective "Adagio."
Each movement, even though it is a complete form, flows into the next move?ment. In the last measures of the second movement, for instance, a three-note group appears repeatedly which subsequently begins the theme of the third movement. In other words, the movement endings have a half-cadential character. There are also similarities between the themes of the different movements. Even though the casual listener may not be aware of them, they contribute to the unity of style of this extraordinary work.
Quartet in c-sharp minor, Op. 131
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born c. December 15, ijyo in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 182J in Vienna
The five quartets written in the years 1824 to 1826, which have come to be known as the "late quartets," were the last works Beethoven wrote. It was felt for many years that because of Beethoven's alienation from the world due to his deafness and illness, these works were too difficult technically and emotionally to be either played or understood. There has, fortunately, been a great change of attitude and they are now widely performed and greatly appreciated.
In these quartets, the writing for each of the four instruments is even more indepen?dent than elsewhere om Beethoven's earlier works. There are many changes of speed, meter and mood. The classical quartet form as it was previously known is enlarged in two important ways: by the frequent use of important and extended slow introductions to the first and last movements, and by the use of an immensely expanded variation form in the slow movements.
In the c-sharp minor quartet Beethoven stretched the boundaries of conventional form to their farthest point. The work is divided into seven sections, rather than sepa?rate movements, each one following its predecessor without pause. Two of the sections serve only as a bridge or an introduction to the next section. Only the last is in sonata form, the bulwark of traditional quartet structure.
The first section is a free fugue which appears to come to a full stop. This final chord resolves, however, directly into the second section, a free fantasy with fragments of its theme developed between the state?ments. The recitative section which follows serves as an interlude and introduction to the "Andante," a long theme with seven variations. A series of cadenzas leads to an elaborate coda.
The fifth section is a Scherzo, Beethoven's most complex yet highly organized use of this form. There is no full slow movement in this quartet -the "Adagio" which follows is merely the "ghost" of a slow movement, serving as a brief respite and a bridge into the seventh and final section. This finale is indeed in sonata form, but the succession and treatment of the themes make it appear more akin to an extended rondo. The rhythm of one secondary theme parallels that of die opening fugue. The entire work is brought to a close with three fortissimo c-sharp minor chords.
". n October 11, 1946
M k a string quartet was
M A formed at the behesl
I of William Schumann, H m the president of The
k W [uilliard School, who
envisioned the benefits of a resident quartet serving in both teaching and performing capacities. The group was led by a Juilliard graduate named Robert Mann. The ensemble stepped onto the
stage of the auditorium of the old Juilliard School to perform a program of works by Beethoven, Bartok, and Walter Piston. In the audience that evening were such esteemed musicians as Yehudi Menuhin and Zoltan Kodaly.
During the nearly five decades since its inaugural concert, The Juilliard String Quartet has established and maintained a reputation as one of history's great string quartets through performances, recordings, the fostering of new works, and the training of young musicians. Its renditions of the standard string quartet literature are widely regarded as definitive. Its performances are renowned for interpretive insight and vitality. The Quartet has been acclaimed in concerts throughout the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, and the Pacific and has been a guest at virtually all of the world's-major music festivals, in addition to appearing with symphony orchestras in performances of concertos for string quartets by Schoenberg and other composers.
In 1961, it became the first American string quartet to visit the Soviet Union. A year later, it established a continuing resi?dency at the Library of Congress, where for over three decades, The Juilliard String Quartet has enjoyed a phenomenal reputa?tion as quartet-in-residence. Its concerts from the Library of Congress have been
broadcast nationwide. The Juilliard String Quartet has been seen in televised concerts as part of the PBS Great Performances Series.
The Juilliard String Quartet's recent activities include their three-concert series this season of works by Hindemith, Bartok and Beethoven presented at the Recital Hall of the Ford Center and Alice Tully Hall at Lincoln Center in New York. Other high?lights include the world premiere of John Harbison's The Remaking for soprano and string quartet, appearances with the Seattle Symphony in concertos for string quartet by Piston and Spohr, all-Mozart programs in Alice Tully Hall (part of Lincoln Center's Mozart bicentennial celebration), annual concerts under the auspices of the Library of Congress, and the world premiere of Billy Taylor's Homage, a work for string quartet and jazz trio.
No less impressive than its playing of the standard string quartet literature has been the Quartet's commitment to contemporary composers. Over the years, the ensemble has performed more than one hundred and fifty works written in the twentieth century. It has been particularly devoted to American composers, having given the premiere per?formances of more than sixty scores by Milton Babbitt, Elliott Carter, Aaron Copland, Lukas Foss, Peter Mennin, Walter Piston, William Schuman, Roger Sessions, Morton Subotnick, Richard Wernick and many others.
The Juilliard String Quartet continues on-going residencies at The Library of Congress in Washington, D.C. and at The Juilliard School. As faculty at Juilliard, the Quartet has helped train a number of other prominent string quartets, including the Emerson, Tokyo, Shanghai, Lark, Essex, and St. Lawrence String Quartets.
This evening's performance marks the fifth appearance of The Juilliard String Quartet under UMS auspices.
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 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 19, 1996.
On Friday February 24, 1996, 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, igg6, 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.
