University Of Michigan, Ann Arbor

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor
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 igg5g6 season comes to a close this spring, the UMS will have brought to the community 65 performances 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:
First, and most important, the people in Ann Arbor and the surrounding region provide great support for what we do by attending events in large numbers and by providing generous financial support through gifts to the UMS. And, according to our artists, they are among the most informed, engaged and appreciative audiences in the country.
O It has been the tradition of the University Musical Society since its founding in 1879 to bring the greatest artists in the world to Ann Arbor, and that tradition continues today. Our patrons expect the best, and that's what we seek to offer them.
O Our special relationship with one of the country's leading educational institutions, the University of Michigan, has allowed us to maintain a level of independence which, in turn, affords us the ability to be creative, bold and entrepreneurial in bringing the best to Ann Arbor. While the UMS is proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan and is housed on the Ann Arbor campus, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization which supports itself from ticket sales, other earned income, grants, and contributions.
O The quality of our concert halls means that artists love to perform here and are eager to accept return engagements. Where else in the U.S. can Cecilia Bartoli perform a recital before 4,300 people and know that her pianissimos can be heard unamplified by everyone
O Our talented, diverse, and dedicated Board of Directors drawn from both the University and the regional community provides outstanding leadership for the UMS. The 200-voice UMS Choral Union, 55-member Advisory Committee, 275-member usher corps, and hundreds of other volunteers and interns contribute thousands of hours to the UMS each year and provide critical services that we could not afford otherwise.
O Finally, I've got a wonderful group of hard-working staff colleagues who love the Musical Society and love their work. Bringing the best to you brings out the best in them.
Thanks for coming, and let me hear from you if you have any suggestions, complaints, etc. Look for me in the lobby or give me a call at 313.747.1174.

Concert Guidelines
To make concertgoing a more convenient and pleasurable experience for all patrons, the Musical Society has implemented the following policies and practices:
Starting Time for Concerts The Musical Society will make every attempt to begin its performances on time. Please allow ample time for parking. Ushers will seat latecomers at a predetermined time in the program so as not to disturb performers or other patrons.
Children We welcome children, but very young chil?dren can be disruptive to a performance. Children should be able to sit quietly in their own seats through?out a performance. Children unable to do so, along 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 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 theSociety. 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 orches?tras and conductors.
In recent years, die 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 die 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, die Choral Union further enriched that tradition through its appointment as resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In January 1994 die Choral Union collaborated widi Maestro Jarvi and the DSO in the chorus' first major commercial recording, Tchaikovsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records in October of diat year. Last season, the ensemble joined forces with the DSO for subscrip?tion performances of Ravel's Daphnis el Chloe and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection). In 1995, the Choral Union established an artistic association 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 Toldeo Symphony for performances of Bach's Mass in b minor under conductor Thomas Sheets, and the Berlioz Requiem with Andrew Massey.
The long choral tradition of die University Musical Society reaches back to 1879, when a group of local church choir members and other interested singers came together to sing choruses from Handel's Messiah, an event that signaled the birth of the University Musical Society. Pardcipation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of die 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 ig86.
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.
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).
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 .mailing 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 10:15 to 10:45 a.m.

The production of The River was made possible, in part, with public funds from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York State Council on the Arts, and by a grant from The Ford Foundation.
Originally commissioned by American Ballet Theatre and performed in 1970, The River represented the major collaboration between Duke Ellington and Alvin Ailey. The music was to depict the rise and course of a river from source to sea, with attention given to events on either bank. Characteristically, Ellington improvised on this idea, translating it into an allegory on birth, life, and rebirth.
Born in Washington, DC in 1899, American composer, pianist and jazz-band leader, Duke Ellington is one of the most influential figures in the history of music. In the early 1930's his band became renowned at the legendary Cotton Club in Harlem. Later the band toured nationally and internationally. The "Duke" wrote over 900 compositions before his death in 1974; among his classics are Mood Indigo, Solitude, Caravan, Sophisticated Lady, and Black, Brown, and Beige.

All About Ailey
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now fabled per?formance of March, 1958, at the 92nd Street Young Men's Hebrew Association in New York. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young black modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey Company has gone on to perform for an estimated eighteen million people in forty-eight states and in sixty-seven countries on six continents, earning a repu?tation as one of the most acclaimed interna?tional ambassadors of American culture, promoting the preservation and enrichment of the American modern dance heritage and the uniqueness of black cultural expres?sion.
Born in Rogers, Texas on January 5, 1931, Alvin Ailey was introduced to dance by performances of the Katherine Dunham Company and the Ballet Russe. His formal dance training began with an introduction to Lester Horton's classes by his friend, Carmen de Lavallade.
When Mr. Ailey began creating dance, he drew upon his "blood memories" of Texas, the blues, spirituals and gospel as inspiration, resulting in the creation of two of his most popular and critically acclaimed works -Blues Suite and Revelations.
Although he created seventy-nine ballets over his lifetime, Alvin Ailey maintained that his Company was not exclusively a repository for his own work. Today, the Company continues Mr. Ailey's legacy of presenting important works of the past and commis?sioning new ones. In all, more than one-hundred seventy works by sixty-three chore?ographers have been performed by the Ailey Company.
In 1989, after the death of Alvin Ailey, Judith Jamison was appointed Artistic Director of the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. Ms. Jamison wrote in her recent autobiography, Dancing Spirit, "I hope I'm a continuation of Alvin's vision. He has left me a road map. It's very clear. It works."
These performances mark the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theaters eighth visit to Ann Arbor, totaling twenty-one performances under the auspices of the UMS.

String Quartet No. 2 in F Major, Op. 92
Sergei Prokofiev
Born April 27, 1891 in Sontzovka, near
Ekaterinoslav, Russia Died March 5, 1953 in Moscow
In the late summer of 1941, Moscow was coming under increasingly heavy bombard?ment and was in danger of falling to the German army. By early August the Soviet Committee on Artistic Affairs had decided to evacuate a group of leading artists, writers and musicians, including Sergei Prokofiev, to a safer refuge in Nalchik, capital of the Kabardino-Balkaria Autonomous Republic in the foothills of the Caucasus mountains. In Nalchik, freed from the concerns of living in war-torn Moscow, Prokofiev was especially prolific: he completed an orchestral suite (titled The Year 1941), several songs, almost half of his epic opera War and Peace and the String Quartet No. 2 in F Major, Op. 92, "On Kabardian Themes."
The folk music of the Kabardi region was litde known at the time (although Prokofiev's early mentor Sergei Taneyev had assembled an anthology of Kabardian melodies some years earlier) and Prokofiev appeared to relish the challenge of reconciling this folk style with a cultivated art-music form. He wrote: "It seems to me that bringing new and untouched Eastern folklore together with one of the most classical of all classical forms -the string quartet -could yield interesting and unexpected results." This curious amalgam of cultures was manifest in the composition of the Second String Quartet, yet the medium of chamber music was almost as alien to Prokofiev as was the folk music repertoire. Apart from a handful of sonatas for solo instruments and piano, the two string quartets are his only major ventures into the chamber genre. In his orchestral writing, however, Prokofiev had
already developed a distinctive string style, and his success in the string quartet form derives in part from this experience and confidence with idiomatic string technique. As David Avshalomov has noted, Prokofiev's string quartets, though few in number, have remained in the repertoire precisely because "they are in equal parts good string quartets and good Prokofiev."
The musical conventions of "Orientalism," including such stock devices as pentatonic scales and augmented seconds, had become almost standardized in the nineteenthand early twentiethcenturies, particularly in Russia, but they did not appeal to Prokofiev's more ingenuous aesthetic. Instead, as David Fleming has written, his borrowings strove for an honest, even harsh directness, "taking care not to smooth down the rough edges of the folk material." The opening movement, cast in a sonata-allegro pattern, is based on an authentic dance tune, but Prokofiev absorbs and interprets the folk models via his own musical lan?guage, in order to avoid simple quotation. Later in the movement the lower strings imi?tate an accordion-like ostinato over which the violin introduces another folk melody, then a cheerful lyric theme rounds out the exposition. The raw textures in the develop?ment section may have contributed to the occasional criticisms from orthodox officials that Prokofiev had "violated" the folk sources with excessive "barbaric" harmonies. Even Nikolai Miaskovsky, Prokofiev's close friend, deemed the treatment of folk materi?als in this quartet "simply monstrously, even 'nightmarishly' interesting."
The central Adagio movement is based on the Kabardian love song "Synilyaklik Zhir," played by the cello in its high register. Prokofiev also imitates the sound of the kamange, a native Caucasian instrument, in his transformation of the "Islamei" folk dance. The melody itself is later modulated into a highly-ornamented accompaniment
to a shepherd's tune in the violin.
The vigorous agitations heard in the opening movement return in the finale, with the violin adding an uneasy lyrical melody. Prokofiev incorporates into the movement the flexible syncopated episodes, and allusions to previously-heard themes. He adroitly retains the sense of cultural dis?tance connoted by the folk music in this quartet, while at the same time highlighting its emotional immediacy.
Piano Quintet (1972-76)
Alfred Schnittke
Born November 24, 1934 in the German Volga Republic, near Saratov
In the words of Richard Steinitz, Alfred Schnittke's music "flows from a deep vein of humanity marked by intense anguish born of very real suffering." Schnittke has been called a "polystylist," in reference to the broad kaleidoscope of musical styles inte?grated into his works. He often juxtaposes wit, exuberance and theatrical energy in close proximity with sadness, simple beauty or melancholy. Audiences have come to expect surreal distortions of classical patterns in his compositions, as in (fQEin Sommernaclitstraum or the first Concerto Grosso, and the result, while humorous at times, can also be unnerving, even threatening.
For a composer saddled with a reputation for almost schizophrenic eclecticism, Schnittke's Piano Quintet is all the more remarkable for its relentless sobriety, draw?ing intensely as it does on the "very real suf?fering" to which Steinitz referred. Schnittke set about work on the Piano Quintet imme?diately after the death of his mother in September 1972. He writes: "My aim to compose a piece of simple yet at the same time earnest character in her memory set an almost insolvable problem before me. The
first movement of a Piano Quintet had come into being almost without complication. After that it went no further, for I had to transplant everything I wrote from imaginary sonic locations. . .into a psychologically real environment, where tormenting pain has an almost light-hearted effect and where the right to dissonance, consonance and asso?nance must first be fought for."
During the next four years his sketches and experiments yielded little for the project. He envisioned one movement as an instru?mental summary of the Requiem Mass, but found the themes he had devised too palpa?bly vocal; eventually they were turned into an independent composition, the Requiem for chorus and small ensemble. Only in 1976 did Schnittke succeed in completing the final four movements. He notes that in the intervening years spent trying to solve the quintet's problems, "I had changed so much that I now profoundly experienced it rather than composed it."
The opening piano motif in the first movement, a five-note chromatic turning figure, captures some of the personal anguish that afflicted the composer during the Quintet's composition -its recurrence throughout this and other movements func?tions as a constant reminder of the work's mournful genesis. The strings enter together with the same motif, but each in a slightly-altered rhythmic pattern which intensifies the sense of musical and emotional disloca?tion. In one of the more programmatic moments near the end of the movement is a high repeated note in the piano diminuendos until only the noise of the key is heard: life and substance depart, leaving only the mechanics of the body to eventually cease their function.
The chromatic relationships of die B-A-C-H motif in the "unearthly waltz" of the second movement seem integrally related to the turn figure of the first. It is transposed, inverted and augmented by the strings, pro-
viding both melodic and harmonic material for the entire movement, but this waltz is not at all light-hearted, nor even nostalgic. Schnittke remarks on its "sad meditation. . .and the continual recurring intrusion of real tragedy into this meditative tranquillity."
The third movement begins with the same disjunct statement of the chromatic motif heard in the opening, but it is gradu?ally transformed by the introduction of quarter-tones. This intensification of pitch also affects the harmonies, which expand and contract as if breathing, usually tighten?ing into quarter-tone clusters at the end of the phrase. As in the first movement, a puls?ing piano note dies away into nothingness, marked at the end by an audible lifting of the sustain pedal as if to signal the demise of life signs. In the fourth movement the ensemble covers extremes of register and dynamic in a desperate outburst whose real relevance is known only to the composer. He writes: 'The third and fourth movements are based upon situations of genuine grief about which I wish to say nothing more because they are of a highly personal nature and can only be devalued by words."
The passacaglia of the final movement recalls by technique the composer recalled by name in'the second movement, by there is little that is expressly Bach-like or Baroque in it. An arpeggiated theme in D-flat Major, repeated fourteen times, speaks of peaceful resignation or comfort, while, in the words of the composer, "all other sonic events are mere shadows of an already disappeared tragic perception." The final statement of the theme in the piano fades again to key-noise, and this Quintet, infused with so much grief and memory, dies away quietly.
Piano Quintet in g minor, Op. 57
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg
Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
Dmitri Shostakovich once claimed to have written the g-minor Piano Quintet, Op. 57, just so he could play the piano part and thereby travel on concert tours with famous chamber ensembles. "Now the 'Glazunovs' and the 'Beethovens1 won't be able to do without me," he once said only halfjokingly, "and I'll get a chance to see the world!" Certainly if he wanted to make himself indis?pensable to these groups, the Piano Quintet was a highly promising first step. After its premiere by the Beethoven String Quartet on November 23, 1940, with the composer at the piano, the response was unanimous and wildly enthusiastic. Two of the move?ments (the Scherzo and the Finale) were encored, establishing a practice that soon became so common one critic described the piece as "a work in five movements -of which there are seven." Soon after the pre?miere the Quintet was awarded the Stalin Prize (First Class) amounting to 100,000 rubles -perhaps the largest sum ever paid for a piece of chamber music.
But Shostakovich's real contribution as a chamber musician lay not in his perfor?mance of the Piano Quintet, but in the later composition of fifteen string quartets that set him among the masters of the genre. It was while the Beethoven String Quartet, one of Russia's leading ensembles at the time, was rehearsing Shostakovich's first composi?tion in that medium that they suggested he write a quintet so they might all play together. He composed it during the summer of 1940, and after the auspicious premiere it contin?ued to grow in popularity, becoming one of
his most performed and recorded chamber works (perhaps only surpassed by the String Quartet No. 8).
Like others before him, Shostakovich's turn to chamber music provided an outlet for his most personal utterances. After the stinging condemnation of his works in Pravda, which proclaimed that he wrote "chaos instead of music," Shostakovich assumed an inscrutable public mask, and his large-scale symphonic works avoided, at least superficially, anything that would raise the ire of officialdom. Only in the more inti?mate works does one catch a glimpse of Shostakovich's private face, his deepening melancholy but also the latent incisive wiL
The Piano Quintet's classicist bearing adheres to traditional formal patterns and demonstrates a clarity of expression, border?ing occasionally on stark objectivity. It wavers between parody and homage, yet beneath the laconic surface there are under?currents of powerful emotion. It is all too easy to speculate on the deeper meanings of Shostakovich's music -the hidden messages locked behind those notes -yet listeners need not know to whom the barbs are point?ed, it they indeed exist in this work, to be impressed by its expressive caliber and musical value.
The opening movements form a Prelude and Fugue pairing that brings to mind the keyboard works of Bach. The solemn declamatory chords at the start of the Prelude, contrasted with a lighter two-part counterpoint in the middle section, return at the end, and lead direcdy into the slow string fugue on a related theme. The build?ing of textural intensity as the theme enters on all instruments leads to an impassioned climax before arching back into a relaxed, almost inaudible conclusion.
The Scherzo is brief and high-spirited, yet Shostakovich scholar Ian MacDonald warns against ignoring the "caustic nuances"
that are a part of the whole Quintet's satiri?cal continuity. "The Scherzo is a clumsy rus?tic dance with brutal undertones," aimed direcdy at "Stalin's generation of cultureless country bullies." At die high-point of die movement Shostakovich introduces an unusual timbral coloration in the piano, which plays percussively in the upper regis?ters as if it were a xylophone, while die strings accompany with double-stopped chords.
The staid mood of die first two movements returns in the Intermezzo -a poetically lyrical dialogue that explores the range of warm tone colors in all five instruments. Only in the Finale are the emotional contra?dictions raised by the previous movements resolved. The austerity of die Fugue dissi?pates, and the Scherzo is reiterated with a less sarcastic demeanor. The rhythms hover between dance and march, but this is no sturdily triumphant finale: it expresses a reconciliation won in the midst of turmoil, a subdued and restrained optimism that, despite moments of joy, ends with a non?committal shrug.
Notes by Luke Howard, Ann Arbor, 1996.
ndoubtedly one of the major quartets of today, the Borodin String Quartet was founded in 1945. Emerging from die Moscow Conservatory immediately after the World War II, die quartet was known initially as the Moscow Philharmonic Quartet, changing its name to the Borodin Quartet in 1955. Their early close association with Shostakovich, one of the most important composers of string quartets, played a part in making the
Borodin Quartet's performances of his works so significantly in concert life today. Throughout the 1950's and 1960's, the Borodin Quartet established themselves as one of the most respected ensembles in the Soviet Union, becoming known in the West mainly through recordings. In 1974, Valentin Berlinsky (an original Quartet member) and Dmitri Shebalin (a member since 1954) were joined by a new second violinist, Andrei Abramenkov. Since 1976, when the new leader Mikhail Kopelman joined the Quartet, it has remained unchanged.
The Borodin Quartet plays regularly to capacity houses throughout the world. In 1969, they gave an extremely successful series of performances consisting of the Shostakovich Quartets (at that time twelve quartets were composed) in Vancouver. In 1988, they performed the complete Shostakovich Quartet cycle, (fifteen quartets) in Pasadena, California. It has subsequently been repeated in Amsterdam (1991), Northern California (1992), Ann Arbor, Michigan (1994) -part of a scholarly con?ference entitled Shostakovich: The Man and His Age, New York (1995), London, and
The Borodin Strinc Quartet
Germany (1994). Celebrating their fiftieth anniversary in 1995. the Quartet performed a series of concerts around the world, including concerts with guest artists such as Natalia Gutman, Mstislav Rostropovich and Yuri Bashmet.
From 1990 to igg2, members of the Quartet were aru'sts-in-residence at Aldeburgh. The Quartet played a prominent role in the Aldeburgh Foundation year-round concert series. They also held master classes regu?larly and coached individual students and ensembles from throughout the world attending the Britten-Pears School for Advanced Musical Studies. They maintain a close relationship with the Aldeburgh Foundation, appearing regularly in Festival programs.
The Quartet has an exclusive contract with Teldec Classics International. They have recorded the Tchaikovsky Quartets and Souvenir de Florence (which received the Gramophone Award in 1994), Schubert String Quintet, Haydn's Seven Last Words, and "Russian Miniatures" (selected works for string quartet written by Russian com?posers) .
This evening's performance marks the Borodin Siring Quartet's ninth appearance under UMS auspices.
Born in Moscow in i960, Ludmilla Berlinskaya received her Diploma from the Gnessin School as a pupil of Professor Kantor and from the Moscow Conservatory where she studied with Professor Vaskressenskyi. In 1989, with the Leningrad-Moscow Quintet she won the Grand Prix and the three special prizes (including the prize for the best pianist in the competition) at the Chamber Ensembles Competition in Florence. As a soloist with various ensem?bles, her performances have taken her to France, Portugal, Hungary, Japan, Germany and Italy, performing with numerous artists including Sviatoslav Richter, Yuri Bashmet, Alexander Rudin and the Borodin Quartet.
This evening's performance marks Ms. Berlinskaya's debut appearance under UMS auspices.

Kenny Burrell may well be the most consis?tently lyrical guitarist in all jazz -one of the reasons he was Duke Ellington's favorite improviser on that instrument. Although his stage demeanor is cool and controlled, Kenny is a romantic, and that's why his tex?tures, though subtle, are so sensuous. And always, there is the singing melodic line -alternately meditative, exultant, wry, and intimate. He is a master technician; whatev?er he hears, he can play. But Kenny does not equate performances with a display of his technique: he is concered with the. music. He knows how to make the silences speak for him.
Kenny Burrell was born in Detroit, Michigan on July 31, 1931 to a musical fam?ily. His mother was a pianist and his father played guitar and banjo; Kenny's three brothers also became musicians. As a kid, he was first attracted to the tenor saxophone after hearing Coleman Hawkins, but that instrument was out of his parents' economic reach. On the radio one day Kenny heard Charlie Christian, and he knew his true call-
ing; other early influences were Muddy Waters and T-Bone Walker. It wasn't long after he started playing guitar that Kenny became an integral part of the exceptionally productive Detroit jazz scene: he played with Hank, Elvin and Thad Jones; Pepper Adams; Tommy Flanagan; Barry Harris; Yusef Lateef; and Donald Byrd.
Burrell went to Wayne State University, where he received his only formal guitar training: one year of lessons on the classical guitar. After he received his B.A. in music, Kenny attracted the attention of Oscar Peterson who hired him to replace Herb Ellis in the spring of 1953. After six months with Peterson, Kenny settled in New York where he was almost immediately accepted as an associate of such formidable musicians as Kenny Clark, Coleman Hawkins and John Coltrane. He free-lanced for years with Benny Goodman as the first guitarist in Goodman's band since Charlie Christian's death in 1942. Kenny was (and still is) in constant demand as a sideman on record dates and as a leader of his own unit on Blue Note and other labels.
Clitar Summit II
For many years, Kenny has continued touring as well as fulfulling one of his most natural talents and desires -teaching. He has taught courses on the music of Duke Ellington at UCLA in addition to conducting clinics and master classes.
Maggie Hawthorne, an astute jazz critic who used to write for the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, has pointed out that "Kenny Burrell plays music that resists labels." Sure, it's jazz, and it certainly has a lot of blues in it, but he does not limit himself to any one stylistic category. His playing encompasses everything from bebop and Latin to rhythm-and-blues and funk.
What has also made Kenny Burrell a survivor, capable of appealing to audiences to any age or background, is the direction of his music. It is uncluttered, as clear as coun?try air. It never stops flowing, and it is never addressed solely to other musicians. Kenny wants to reach his listeners, wants to connect his feelings with theirs, and that's exactly what he does every time he plays.
This evening's performance marks Mr. BurreU's IMS debut.
Manuel Barrueco's rare artistry assures him a place among the handful of acknowledged masters of the guitar. His elegant musician?ship and expressive sensitivity, as well as his brilliant technical command and new approach to his instrument, have won him international acclaim and established him as one of the most important guitarists of his time. Each season his recital and orchestral appearances take him to music centers on four continents. A prize-winning recording artist, Barrueco can be heard in music rang?ing from Bach to twentieth-century Spanish composers on albums for VoxTurnabout and AngelEMI, with whom he now has an exclusive recording agreement.
Barrueco has performed in all major North American cities, including appear?ances at New York's Alice Tully Hall, Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center, Los Angeles' Ambassador Foundation and San Francisco's Herbst Theater. He is heard regularly in recital in the music capitals of Europe, such as Vienna, Berlin, Munich, Hamburg, London, Rome, Milan, Paris, Madrid and Amsterdam. In the Far East he has appeared in Korea, Taiwan, and made his sixth concert tour of Japan in 1993. He has also appeared at the summer festivals of Tanglewood, Mostly Mozart, Schleswig-Holstein, Ludwigsburg, the Avignon Festivals and the Echternach Summer Festival in Luxembourg.
Barrueco has performed with the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Seiji Ozawa, the Baltimore Symphony with David Zinman, Washington D.C.'s National Symphony, the New Jersey Symphony, and in Europe with the Bavarian Radio and Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestras. He has also played with ensembles such as the Prague and Scottish Chamber Orchestras, as well as the Tokyo String Quartet. In addition to his solo recitals and orchestral engage?ments, he has collaborated -in concert and on record -with many outstanding artists, including violinists Frank Peter Zimmermann and Dmitri Sitkovetsky, flutist Ransom Wilson, clarinetist Sabine Meyer and The King's Singers.
In recent seasons, Barrueco's North American engagements included solo recitals and concerts throughout the United States; he has also joined harpist Nancy Allen in a series of duo recitals. In Europe, Barrueco's concert tours brought him to Milan, Berlin, Vienna, Bonn, Munich, Stuttgart and Granada. In the summer of 1993 Manuel Barrueco and Frank Peter Zimmermann performed the world pre?miere of a new concerto written for them by composer Roberto Sierra.
Born in Santiago de Cuba in 1952, Manuel Barrueco began playing popular Latin-American music by ear on the guitar at the age of eight. Encouraged to pursue more formal training, he attended the Esteban Salas Conservatory in Santiago, where at a young age he showed a facility to learn the most difficult repertoire. Barrueco emigrated to the United States with his family in 1967 and studied with Juan Mercadal in Miami and Ray De La Torre in New York. At the Peabody Conservatory he studied with Aaron Shearer and became the first guitarist ever to be awarded a full scholarship to the Peabody Conservatory and to win the Peabody Competition.
In 1974 Manuel Barrueco also became the first guitarist ever to win the prestigious Concert Artists Guild Award, which resulted in his New York debut. The following year he won a top prize in the important Guitar '75 competition in Toronto, and as a result of these triumphs was soon performing extensively in both the United States and Europe.
Barrueco's best-selling recordings have been critically acclaimed worldwide. In the spring of 1988, AngelEMI released his first solo album of Spanish music by de Falla, Rodrigo and Ponce. Subsequently, Angel EMI released four solo albums: Manuel Barrueco plays Mozart and Sor, a recording with Latin-American composers Brouwer, Villa-Lobos and Orbon, Manuel Barrueco plays Bach and De Visee, and a recording of solo guitar music featuring Suite espanola by Albeniz and the complete works for guitar by Turina; as well as an album of Mozart Duets for Flute and Guitar with Ransom Wilson, and a recording with music by Johann Strauss II, On the Beautiful Blue Danube, with The King's Singers and Sabine Meyer. His most recent release is a record?ing of British Folk Songs made in collabora?tion with The King's Singers. Upcoming releases on the AngelEMI label include the
twelve Spanish Dances of Granados, coupled with de Falla's Seven Popular Spanish Songs with soprano Ann Monoyios.
Barrueco is on the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory of Music. He is the father of two young daughters, Anna and Emily.
Mr. Barrueco makes his UMS debut xuith this evenings performance.
Jorma Kaukonen was born in 1940 in Washington, D.C. His father was is the for?eign service, and Jorma spent most of his childhood abroad with his family which gave him the opportunity to gain great cultural insights from all ends of the globe. When he returned to the States at age sixteen, Jorma began playing bluegrass, and during high school he put together a band with his long-time partner, Jack Casady. It wasn't until he attended Ohio's Antioch College that he began mastering the old-time finger-picking that is his stylistic hallmark: "One of my friends, the late Ian Buchanan, really got me started. He took the time and patience to help me dissect things and teach me what fingerpicking was all about. He knew the Reverend Gary Davis, bluesman, quite well." Today, Kaukonen estimates that his acoustic guitar repertoire numbers over 700 songs, many of them old-time country blues num?bers.
In the mid 6o's, when Jorma transferred to the University of Santa Clara, California, he began frequenting a coffeehouse called the Folk Theater. There he metjanisjoplin, who had just migrated from Texas. Kaukonen accompanied her on the guitar at her gigs until one night she missed a show and he was forced to make a solo debut. Around the same time, he also met Paul Kantner through his friends at Santa Clara. Eventually he formed a group with Kantner and Marty Balin; the group was named after a dog
Kaukonen had christened "Blind Thomas Jefferson Airplane." Beginning as a folk group, the band later changed some person?nel, adding Jack Casady on bass, drummer Spencer Dryden, and Grace Slick as vocalist; Jefferson Airplane was the first of the San Francisco bands to become famous in the 1967 acid-rock era. Kaukonen's instrmental composition "Embryonic Journey" on the album Surrealistic Pillow was one of the group's signature pieces. Their ten albums are emblematic milestones of the era.
When the Airplane broke up in 1974, Kaukonen and Casady went on to form the instrumental duo Hot Tuna. Since then, they have released more than twenty-seven albums with incarnations ranging from a four-piece electric sound to a duo acoustic format.
In the midst of all of Jorma Kaukonen's musical triumphs, he also found a great love for teaching. After conducting a masterclass at the New School in New York City, Jorma recorded his first instructional video. He has a successful array of tutorial videos avail?able on Homespun Tapes from Woodstock, New York. This, in turn, led to his dream of opening a guitar school where kids and adults can learn to play and be in an aesthetically pleasing atmosphere. He is doing just that on one of his farms in the rolling Appalachian foothills of southeastern Ohio. 'The process has been a long one, but the results will be from the heart," says Kaukonen.
Jorma Kaukonen is a masterful solo artist. Performing alone or with Hot Tuna, he continues to sell out shows across the country with his unique blues interpreta?tions and folk originals.
This evenings perfomance marks Mr. Kaukonen's UMS debut.
The story of virtuoso guitarist Stanley Jordan's discovery and rise to international acclaim is almost as impressive as his revolu?tionary playing technique. Jordan exploded on the scene when he was named as a last-minute addition to the KOOLJazz Festival in 1984 (his first professional appearance), opening for Wynton Marsalis and Maynard Ferguson. Two days before, he had been playing in the streets of New York City. His fifteen-minute solo prompted the New York Post to headline "Last-Minute Guitarist Steals Show." Before long, Jordan opened for Wynton Marsalis at Avery Fisher Hall, appeared at the Montreuxjazz Festival, and headlined for a week at the Village Vanguard.
By the time his major label debut Magic TouchwiLS released in 1985, Stanley Jordan had been firmly established as one of music's brightest new stars. The album was enthusiastically accepted in jazz circles -it remained the number one hit on Billboard's jazz chart for fifty-one weeks. It was equally embraced by the general public, who viewed Stanley as a "guitarist's guitarist" able to play just about any kind of music to which he set his mind and fingers. Jordan received two Grammy nominations in 1986 for Magic Touch, one for Jazz Album of the Year and the other for Jazz Artist of the Year. Additionally, Guitar Player magazine's Reader's Poll voted him Best New Talent of the year.
Stanley Jordan was born on July 31, 1959, in Chicago. He began studying the classical piano as a child after moving with his family to Palo Alto, California. After switching to the guitar, he studied with Elroy Jones, whom Stanley describes as a "master of the old standards;" Jordan continues his relationship with his teacher to this day. Along with Jones, Jordan names Jimi
Hendrix and Kenny Burrell as his early influences on guitar. Attending Princeton University, Jordan studied music theory and composition with Milton Babbitt and com?puter music with Paul Lansky. He graduat?ed in 1981 with a B.A. in Music.
Magic Touch introduced Stanley's com?mand of the revolutionary "touch" or "tap?ping" technique of guitar playing to the general public. This technique, in which Jordan places both hands on the neck of the instrument so that all his fingers indepen?dently hammer on the strings, allows him to sound like two or three guitarists simultane?ously. After developing this technique entirely on his own, Jordan discovered that the idea had been in the air for some time, as guitarist Jimmy Webster used a similar technique in the 40s and 50s. Although a few guitarists employ a similar style (Emmet Chapman and Eddie Van Halen among them), Stanley Jordan has emerged as the technique's predominant exponent and its premier virtuoso.
In 1988, Jordan released Flying Home, an upbeat collection of dance grooves that revealed yet another side of Jordan's music. 'That album was just another aspect of what I've always been about musically," Jordan says. "In fact, I was playing blues, rock, R&B and even classical before I played jazz. Jazz was like a culmination of everything I had been doing, so to embrace all these styles was quite natural." Jordan has stead-fasdy refused to be categorized, and his open-mindedness toward many diverse schools of music has led him to constandy broaden his stylistic range. Throughout his entire career, Jordan has always placed more value on real musical expression and passion than on "simple" vistuosity or mere academic curiosity. Flying Home also showed that Stanley's focus on the touch technique is by choice, not by limitation. Conventional guitar techniques -flat picking, strumming and plucking the strings -are integrated
with the tap technique which has enabled him to expand the capabilities of the instru?ment to ever great possibilities. His musical sensibility is intact no matter how he choos?es to play the instrument.
On Cornucopia, his 1990 release, Jordan again steps out into several previously unrecorded contexts -a significant amount of live material, some fascinating and heart?felt excursions into electronic and computer music, as well as pure, spontaneous improvi?sation. For Cornucopia, Jordan received his third Grammy nomination -Best Pop Instrumental for "What's Going On." 1991 saw the release of Stolen Moments, recorded live in Japan. 1994's Bolero was truly a tour de force, offering music that ranged from the tide piece, Jordan's arrangement of Ravel's symphonic master work, to arrange?ments of the music of Jimi Hendrix and Herbie Hancock.
In the words of the late Leonard Feather, writing a review for the Los Angeles Times of a Montreal Jazz Festival performance aired on the Bravo cable channel, "Genius is a word too often tossed around in musical circles, but it has been applied rightfully to Stanley Jordan. . .For those who have never caught Jordan in person, the program will serve as a startling eye and ear opener. . . . Switching between jazz and pop standards (from the Beatles and Marvin Gaye to John Coltrane), Jordan is most impressive when he plays two guitars -one, mounted on a stand, for tapping out his lightning single-note melodic lines, and the other slung around his shoulder, for chordal backup. The results are spectacular -and not as a mere gimmick but as a legitimately innova?tive approach."
Mr. Jordan makes his UMS debut xvith this evening's performance.

sonatine for flute, vlola and Harp
Maurice Ravel
Born March 7, 18'75 in Ciboure, Basses-Pyrenees
Died December 28, 193J in Paris
Maurice Ravel's piano music, from the early Menuet Antique to the courtly dances of Le Tombeau de Couperin, never strayed far from the classical aesthetic of balance and restraint. His musical temperament was largely in sympathy with classical principles and ideals, so that when Neoclassicism came into vogue during the early decades of. the century, Ravel's music continued to sound spontaneous and natural while other com?posers often sounded forced and affected. Ravel's Sonatine, completed in 1905, was published immediately by Durand and earned widespread popularity. Even within its reduced proportions, the Sonatine shows Ravel's early confidence in combining tradi?tional classical structures with a modern musical language. Critics have described the work as "slight" and "slender," but not necessarily with disparaging intent, for
much of the Sonatine's appeal lies in its lack of pretension, its concision and clarity. Ravel's biographer Norman Demuth writes that the work's "deft touch, its exquisite verve and grace, all serve to make it a model of its kind."
Ravel often orchestrated works he had originally conceived for solo piano. With that precedent in mind, the French-American harpist and part-time composer, Carlos Salzedo (1885-1961) arranged the Sonatine for flute, viola and harp (an instrumentation that recalls Debussy's sonata for those same instruments, completed in 1917). Salzedo had transcribed for solo harp a number of Ravel's piano works, including the famous Jeux d'eau, and his own original compositions show the unmistakable influence of Ravel's musical style. The two musicians were friends as well as colleagues, and Salzedo's arrangement of the Sonatine met with Ravel's approval.
The first movement ("Modere") is cast in a classical sonata-allegro form of almost text?book clarity. Yet the ingenuity of language and the ingratiating discourse between themes override any sense of rule-bound rigidity. The flute and viola share the melodic material in this movement, while the harp provides the rustling internal filigree and harmonic accompaniment.
In the second movement, titled "Mouvement de menuet, " Ravel captures the essence and feeling of that stately dance while omitting the trio section that customar?ily accompanied a minuet. The harmonies glide effortlessly through numerous tonal areas, and the movement as a whole demon?strates Ravel's aptitude for neatness, nuance and sensitivity. Salzedo assigns the melodic interest in this movement to the flute, around which the viola weaves counter-melodies, the harp contributing with gentle chordal support.
It is in the concluding "Anime" move?ment that the harp finally takes the lead in the ensemble. The virtuosic brilliance and
rapid figuration provide a showcase for the harpist, while the other instruments add snappy, rhythmic accents. Occasional snatches of melody in this whirl of efferves?cence hint at themes from the previous movements without actual quotation. This finale also adheres to the sonata-allegro principle but, as in the first movement, the energy and rhythmic activity discreetly mask the perception of classical structural patterns.
Sextet for Piano, Clarinet, Two Violins and Cello
Aaron Copland
Born November 14, 1900 in Brooklyn, New York Died December 2, 1990 in North Tarryiown, New York
Aaron Copland occasionally referred to the Sextet for clarinet, string quartet and piano as one of his "neglected children:" compositions for which he developed a par?ticular fondness because they received less attention. Certainly he wrote other more famous works that have become classics in the repertoire, well-loved by audiences, but the neglect of the Sextet was not for any lack of interest of appeal. It was simply too difficult to perform.
Copland's Sextet is a transcription of his Short Symphony, a work for expanded chamber orchestra, completed in 1933-Both Leopold Stokowski and Serge Koussevitzky abandoned plans to present the Short Symphony because the relentless meter changes and rhythmic complexities called for too many extra rehearsals. Copland once asked Koussevitzky if the piece was too difficult, to which the famous conductor replied, "No, it's not too difficult. It's impossible!"
The Short Symphony was eventually pre?miered in Mexico under the direction of Carlos Chavez in 1934, but was not per-
formed in the United States until 1944. It would be a further ten years before it was heard a second time. This lack of perfor?mances prompted Copland to arrange the symphony for a smaller ensemble, where the difficulties of rhythmic coordination could be more easily negotiated. The resulting transcription, the Sextet, appeared in 1937 and was premiered by a graduate ensemble from The Juilliard School in 1939. In this reduced setting Copland altered some of the bar-lines and time signatures to simplify 4 3 the notation, but apart from omitting the final repeated chords the Sextet is unchanged from the original Short Symphony.
Copland described the Sextet as one of his most serious compositions: "It is a bare fifteen minutes in length, but. . .those minutes are concentrated in meaning." The nine notes at the start of the first movement constitute, according to Copland, "a kind of row" from which all other melodic figures are derived. Much of the movement is played in unison, and the implied harmonies are triadic, if not quite tonal. The wide leaps and arpeggiations are also a Copland thumbprint, but it is really the playful and frantic athleticism of the rhythmic writing that characterizes the first movement.
Originally Copland planned to call this work The Bounding Line, in reference to the "bounce" of rhythmic energy in the outer sections. The central "Lento" movement is, on the other hand, a study in musical immo?bility. A gently descending pattern that recurs in the clarinet suggests a lament, relieved only temporarily by a delicate dotted note-melody in the middle section. The clarinet figure soon returns with increased harmonic intensity, leading to a brief respite before the vigorous finale.
The closing movement, marked "precise and rhythmic," combines jazz polyrhythms, Stravinskian metric changes, and (for the first time in Copland's music) Mexican rhythms. He also quotes a melody
from the German film Der Kongress Tanzt, but not for any specific extra-musical refer?ence; he was simply fascinated by the notes. In this work's finale, Copland draws on the character of both earlier movements, unit?ing the denser textures of the central "Lento" with the rhythmic vitality of the opening "Allegro vivace," and concluding with a forceful affirmation of the Sextet's rhythmic energy.
Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op99
Franz Schubert
Born January ji, 1J97 in Himvielpfortgrund
(now a part of Vienna) Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna ?
In Sir Jack Westrup's analysis of Schubert's chamber works he states, "It was natural for Schubert to write chamber music. He had the good fortune to be brought up in a family where it was regularly practiced. . .For Schubert chamber music was not simply a form of self-expression. It was something to be played." This prag?matism by no means implies that Schubert's chamber works are artless or casual, but they generally do avoid the artistic gravity found in compositions like Beethoven's late quartets, with which they are contemporary. Much of Schubert's chamber music was composed for the private musical evenings or "Schubertiades" held at the home of Josef von Spaun in Vienna during the 1820's, where the emphasis was on convivial recre?ation and enjoyment. The Piano Trio in B-flat, which was played at the last of these Schubertiades in March 1828, certainly fits this description. Robert Schumann noted regarding this work, "One glance at it, and the troubles of our human existence disappear and die whole world is fresh and bright again."
Scholars have not been able to date exacdy the composition of the B-flat Piano
Trio, but it was almost certainly composed in late 1827. Schubert had spent some time in the countryside around Graz during September of that year, and the invigorating respite from Viennese society life visibly brightened his health and disposition. This renewed vitality seems to have found musical utterance in the B-flat Piano Trio. If the vernacular cheeriness of this work recalls Schubert's earlier 'Trout" Quintet, it may well be because it, too, was inspired by the provincial landscape around Graz.
Schumann described the Piano Trio's first movement as "a thing of grace, intimate and virginal." The two contrasting themes -one jaunty and swaggering, the other a lyrical cantabile melody in the cello --'? are equally confident in their expression. The leisurely development section leads into one of Schubert's most delightful experiments in tonality: there are three "false" recapitula?tions, beginning in G-flat, and only swinging around to the tonic key when the piano enters and takes charge.
The second movement opens with an exquisite cantilena theme that must be regard?ed as one of Schubert's loveliest. Stated first by the cello, it is then played by the violin and piano in turn, with counter-melodies in the other instruments. After a contrasting middle section, the opening theme returns transformed, but still giving a sense of over?all A-B-A symmetry to the movement.
The Scherzo, true to its name, has been described as "impish," "puckish," and "play?ful." The quirky hesitations and quaint rhythmic games build through each phrase towards a scintillating climax. The Trio section is little more than a brief waltz-like interlude before the Scherzo returns in full vigor.
In the concluding Rondo, according to biographer John Reed, Schubert "plunders the music of the village band to enliven the sobriety of classical form." There is a rural joyfulness to this movement, complete with its "pipe and drum" episodes, that is height?ened in the brisk "Presto" coda.
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 the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra Octet, 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 Tmviala. 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 Octet 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.

Advisory Committee of the University Musical Society
The Advisory Committee is an integral part of the University Musical Society. It's role is a major one not only in providing the volun?teer corps to support the Society but also as a fund-raising component as well. The Advisory Committee is a 55-member organization which raises funds for UMS through a variety of events held throughout the concert season: an annual auction, the creative "Delicious Experience" dinners, gala dinners and dances, season opening and preand post-concert events. The Advisory Committee has pledged to donate $110,000 this current season. In addition to fund raising, this hard-working group generously donates valuable and innumerable hours in assisting with the educational programs of UMS and the behind-the-scenes tasks associated with every event UMS presents.
If you would like to become involved with this dynamic group, please give us at call at 313.936.6837 for information.
Thank You!
