Season: 1996 Winter
University Of Michigan, Ann Arbor

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan Ann Arbor
The 1996 Winter 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 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:
O First, and most important, the people in Ann Arbor and the surrounding region provide great support for what we do by attending events in large numbers and by providing generous financial support through gifts to the UMS. And, according to our artists, they are among the most informed, engaged and appreciative audiences in the country.
O It has been the tradition of the University Musical Society since its founding in 1879 to bring the greatest artists in the world to Ann Arbor, and that tradition continues today. Our patrons expect the best, and that's what we seek to offer them.
O Our special relationship with one of the country's leading educational institutions, the University of Michigan, has allowed us to maintain a level of independence which, in turn, affords us the ability to be creative, bold and entrepreneurial in bringing the best to Ann Arbor. While the UMS is proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan and is housed on the Ann Arbor campus, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization which supports itself from ticket sales, other earned income, grants, and contributions.
O The quality of our concert halls means that artists love to perform here and are eager to accept return engagements. Where else in the U.S. can Cecilia Bartoli perform a recital before 4,300 people and know that her pianissimos can be heard unamplified by everyone
O Our talented, diverse, and dedicated Board of Directors drawn from both the University and the regional community provides outstanding leadership for the UMS. The 200-voice UMS Choral Union, 55-member Advisory Committee, 275-member usher corps, and hundreds of other volunteers and interns contribute thousands of hours to the UMS each year and provide critical services that we could not afford otherwise.
O Finally, I've got a wonderful group of hard-working staff colleagues who love the Musical Society and love their work. Bringing the best to you brings out the best in them.
Thanks for coming, and let me hear from you if you have any suggestions, complaints, etc. Look for me in the lobby or give me a call at 313.747.1174.

Concert Guidelines
To make concertgoing a more convenient and pleasurable experience for all patrons, the Musical Society has implemented the following policies and practices:
Starting Time for Concerts The Musical Society will make every attempt to begin its performances on time. Please allow ample time for parking. Ushers will seat latecomers at a predetermined time in the program so as not to disturb performers or other patrons.
Children We welcome children, but very young chil?dren can be disruptive to a performance. Children should be able to sit quietly in their own seats through?out a performance. Children unable to do so, along 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 die University of Michigan. Professor Frieze, who at one time served as acting president of the University, became the first president of the Society. The Society comprised the Choral Union and a concert series that featured local and visiting artists and ensembles. Today, the Choral Union refers not only to the chorus but the Musical Society's acclaimed ten-concert series in Hill Auditorium. Through the Chamber Arts Series, Choral Union Series, Jazz Directions, World Tour, and Moving Truths Series, the Musical Society now hosts over 60 concerts and more than 100 educational events each season featuring the world's finest dance companies,
opera, theater, popular attractions, and presentations from diverse cultures. The University Musical Society has flourished these 117 years with the support of a generous musicand arts-loving community, which has gathered in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center, and The Michigan Theater to experience the artistry of such outstanding talents as Leonard Bernstein, the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, Sweet Honey in the Rock, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Enrico Caruso, Jessye Norman, James Levine, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Urban Bush Women, Benny Goodman, Andres Segovia, The Stratford Festival, The Beaux Arts Trio, Cecilia Bartoli, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
Under the leadership of only five directors in its history, the Musical Society has built a reputation of quality and tradition that is maintained and strength?ened through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, programs for young people, artists' residencies such as the Martha Graham Centenary Festival and the Society Bank Cleveland Orchestra Weekend, and through other collaborative projects.
While it is proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, is housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and collaborates regularly with many University units, the Musical Society is a separate, not-for-profit organization, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
UMS Choral Union
Thomas Sheets, conductor
The University Musical Society Choral Union has performed throughout its 117-year history with many of the world's distinguished orches?tras and conductors.
In recent years, the chorus has sung under the direction of Neemejarvi, Kurt Masur, Eugene Ormandy, Robert Shaw, Igor Stravinsky, Andre Previn, Michael Tilson Thomas, Seiji Ozawa, Robert Spano and David Zinman in performances with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestra of St. Luke's and other noted ensembles.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society of the University of Michigan the 180-voice Choral Union remains best known for its annual performances of Handel's Messiah each December. Two years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition through its appointment as resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In January 1994 the Choral Union collaborated with Maestro Jarvi and the DSO in the chorus' first major commercial recording, Tchaikovsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records in October of that year. Last season, the ensemble joined forces with the DSO for subscrip?tion performances of Ravel's Daphnis et 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 the University Musical Society reaches back to 1879, when a group of local church choir members and other interested singers came together to sing choruses from Handel's Messiah, an event that signaled the birth of the University Musical Society. Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion a love of the choral art.
Hill Auditorium
Completed in 1913, this renowned concert hall was inaugurated at the 20th Annual Ann Arbor May Festival and has since been home to thousands of University Musical Society concerts, including the annual Choral Union Series, through?out its distinguished 82-year history.
Former U-M regent Arthur Hill saw the need at the University for a suitable auditorium for holding lectures, concerts, and other university gatherings. Hill bequested $200,000 for construction of the hall, and Charles Sink, then UMS president, raised an additional $150,000.
Upon entering the hall, concertgoers are greeted by the gilded organ pipes of the Frieze Memorial Organ above the stage. UMS obtained this organ in 1894 from the Chicago Colombian Exposition and installed it in old University Hall (which stood behind present Angell Hall). The organ was moved to Hill Auditorium for the 1913 May Festival. Over the decades, the organ pipes have undergone many changes in appearance, but were restored to their original stenciling, coloring, and layout in 1986.
Currendy, Hill Auditorium is part of the U-M's capital campaign, the Campaign for Michigan. Renovation plans for Hill Auditorium have been developed by Albert Kahn and Associates to include elevators, green rooms, expanded bathroom facilities, air conditioning, artists' dressing rooms, and many other necessary improvements and patron conveniences.
Rackham Auditorium
For over 50 years, this intimate and unique con?cert hall has been the setting for hundreds of world-acclaimed chamber music ensembles pre?sented by the University Musical Society. Before 1941, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were few and irregular. That changed dramatically, however, when the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies came into being through the generosity of Horace H. and Mary A. Rackham.
The Rackham Building's semi-circular auditorium, with its intimacy, beauty, and fine acoustics, was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. The Musical Society realized this potential and pre?sented its first Chamber Music Festival in 1941, the first organized event of its kind in Ann Arbor. The present-day Chamber Arts Series was launched in 1963. The Rackhams' gift of $14.2 million in 1933 is held as one of the most ambitious and liberal gifts ever given to higher education. The luxurious and comfortably appointed 1,129-seat auditorium was designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci.
POWER CENTER for the Performing Arts
The dramatic mirrored glass that fronts the Power Center seems to anticipate what awaits the concertgoer inside. The Power Center's dedication occurred with the world premiere of Truman Capote's The Grass Harp in 1971. Since then, the Center has been host to hundreds of prestigious names in theater, dance, and music, including the University Musical Society's first Power Center presentation--Marcel Marceau.
The fall of 1991 marked the twentieth anniver?sary of the Power Center. The Power Family-Eugene B. Power, a former regent of the University of Michigan, his wife Sadye, and their son Philip-contributed $4 million toward the building of the theater and its subsequent improvements. The Center has seating for 1,380 in the auditorium, as well as rehearsal spaces, dressing rooms, costume and scenery shops, and an orchestra pit.
UMS hosted its annual week-long theater resi?dency in the Power Center, welcoming the esteemed Shaw Festival of Canada, November 15-20, 1994.
In October 1994, UMS, the Martha Graham Dance Company, and ten institutional partners hosted
"In the American Grain: The Martha Graham Centenary Festival" commemorating the 100th anniversary of Martha Graham's birtli. The Power Center was the site of open rehearsals, exhibits, workshops, and performances, including the 50th anniversary celebration of the premiere of the Martha GrahamAaron Copland collaboration Appalachian Spring (Ballet for Martha).
The Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened its doors January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaudeville movie palace era. The gracious facade and beautiful interior were then, as now, a marvel practi?cally unrivaled in Michigan. As was the custom of the day, the Theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ, acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country.
Over the years, die 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, ig6g,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 1 o: 15 to 10:45 a.m.

Since their first appearance on the music scene in 1970, The Canadian Brass have revolu?tionized brass music and established the brass quintet as a vital force in the music world. Over the past twenty-five years, these classically trained virtuoso musicians have transformed a previously neglected group of instruments with a limited repertoire into an exciting and versatile ensemble which performs everything from Bach and Mozart to Gershwin and Dixieland. With their unique blend of virtuosity, spon?taneity and humor, The Canadian Brass have paved the way for many other brass groups, but clearly, they remain in a class by themselves.
The key to The Canadian Brass' perfor?mance style is communication between the artists and their audiences. The players feel strongly that it is important to involve the audience in their concerts, both to enhance the people's enjoyment of the music and to ensure that they have fun. Internationally acclaimed for their "brilliant virtuosity and ensemble playing of remarkable unanimity" (New York Times), The Canadian Brass also add appropriate commentary and tasteful touches of humor to their concerts. Their dazzling performances, combined with eclectic programming, have enabled them to bring classical music to vast new audiences, while providing some of the best musical entertainment to be found anywhere.
The Canadian Brass, who were the first chamber ensemble ever to tour the People's Republic of China, have delighted audi?ences throughout North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. Each season they give over 130 concerts in North America alone, performing from coast to coast at such major halls as New York's Carnegie Hall (where they appeared four times in one season), Orchestra Hall in Chicago, the Academy of
Music in Philadelphia, Ambassador Auditorium in the Los Angeles area, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. (where their concerts were sold out three times in one season). The Canadian Brass have appeared as featured guest artists with many leading U.S. orchestras, including those of Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis, San Francisco, the National Symphony and the Boston, New York and Philadelphia Pops. They are also a popular attraction at many summer music festivals including Tanglewood, Mostly Mozart, Wolf Trap, Ravinia, Interlochen, Blossom and the Hollywood Bowl, all of which hosted the highly successful joint concerts with Star of Indiana, the nation's premier brass and per?cussion corps.
Highlights of The Canadian Brass' exten?sive North American itinerary for the 1995-96 season included a holiday concert with members of the New York Philharmonic brass at Avery Fisher Hall, and recitals in such cities as Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Minneapolis, Ann Arbor, West Palm Beach and Portland, OR. They will also appear with numerous orchestras, including the Baltimore Symphony, Utah Symphony and the San Jose Symphony, among others. In Europe, they will give recitals in London, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Cologne, Berlin, Leipzig, Dresden, Munich as well as various cities throughout Italy.
Following a 1990 Kennedy Center per?formance by The Canadian Brass, the Washington Post said: "Blending virtuosity, musicality, comedy and wit, they inspired equal measures of laughter and admiration from the packed house, ultimately receiving the inevitable -and totally deserved -standing ovation." Having forged a new road for generations of brass players to come, The Canadian Brass can look back on their first quarter-century as a prelude to even greater levels of achievement in the future.
This evening's performance marks The Canadian Brass' eighth appearance under UMS auspices.

Johann Sebastian Bach
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
In 1817 the Swiss critic Hans-Georg Nageli praised Bach's Mass in b minor as "the greatest work of music of all ages and of all people." Despite the obvious hyperbole, Nageli's assessment typifies the remarkable veneration afforded this monument of west?ern art music. The scope and proportions of the b minor Mass are as colossal as its reputation: it is an uncontested masterpiece. It encapsulates as does no other composition Bach's choral artistry, and offers a musical spectrum whose breadth and depth reveal both academic and spiritual penetration. All the more intriguing, then, is that it arose from rather mundane circumstances, and was completed only near the end of Bach's life as an intimate and private offering of faidi.
On July 27, 1733, Bach wrote a letter to Friedrich August II, the new Elector of Saxony at the court in Dresden, stating: "In deepest Devotion I present to your Royal Highness this trifling product of that science which I haVe attained in Music. . ." This "trifling product" was a beautifully prepared score of a Missa, comprising the Kyrie and Gloria sections of what is now known as the Mass in b minor. Bach hoped to receive in return some kind of honorary title (it was eventually bestowed on him in 1736) which he could use as leverage in the ongoing tussle with his employers in Leipzig. The Missa pairing of Kyrie and Gloria was an acceptable mode for Lutheran worship in the early eighteenth century, and this form allowed Bach to compose a sacred piece of music suitable for the Catholic court at Dresden without transgressing the boundaries of the Lutheran faith. Bach scholar and enthusiast Joshua Rifkin speculates that this Missa was composed in haste, and that most, if not all
of it was based on earlier works: 'To write the Missa, therefore, Bach had little to do but select an appropriate series of movements and fit them to the requisite portions of the Mass text." Bach delivered the elegant score and individual parts to his patron in Dresden in person, but kept a copy of the full score for himself.
Between 1747 and 1749, near the end of his creative career, Bach seems to have become interested in completing a Missa tola, or setting of the complete text of the Mass Ordinary, using the Dresden Missa of 1733 as the starting point. In the process of adding the other movements of the Roman Mass (the Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei) Bach nevertheless created a work that was not performable in the liturgy of either the Roman or Lutheran churches, perhaps not even intended for performance at all. Rifkin claims that this complete Mass "could equally well have represented a composition that unfolds as a totality not in concrete time but on a conceptual plane alone." The manu?script for this Missa tola, the largest work Bach ever wrote, is without a title, but for more than fifty years before the first edition was even published in 1845 musicians had already begun to refer to it as Bach's Mass in b minor.
It is only superficially odd that Bach, a committed Lutheran, should have composed a Roman High Mass. While Luther had sought to reform points of doctrine, he did not oppose the liturgy of the Roman Church. His Formulae Missae of 1523 retained the five musical portions of the Latin Mass Ordinary (Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei). Although Luther's Deutsche Messe of 1526 provided an alternate German vernacular mass, he almost certainly considered the Latin Mass a higher form of worship. But the immense dimensions alone of the Mass in b minor disqualify it from the Lutheran service. Even in Bach's day when the main church services lasted approximately three
hours there would have been insufficient time to present a work of this scope (the sermon itself usually lasted more than an hour.) Neither is the work, though nominally in the form of the Roman Mass, suitable for the liturgy of the Roman Church. Bach re?ordered the five sections of the Mass Ordinary into an idiosyncratic arrangement of four sections, combining the Kyrie and Gloria and shifting the "Osanna" and "Benedictus" movements from the Sanclus into the Agnus Dei. By making the Mass non-performable in either church's rite, Bach focuses very personally on the contem?plation of Christianity's central mystery, which transcends denomination. As Wilfred Mellers notes, Bach at this time "was compos?ing for no master, but for himself and God, as a servant of the church universal."
The Mass in b minor is often juxtaposed with Bach's other great sacred utterances, the Passion settings, as representative of his Catholic and Lutheran learnings respectively. If the Passion presents the story of the Christian Church, then the Mass encapsu?lates it's doctrine. For Bach, though, drama and dogma were not opposed poles, and the Mass in b minor is as much a synthesis of these elements as it is of the Catholic and Protestant rites, of human frailties and infal?lible divine order, of the physical and the metaphysical.
The broad scope of the complete Mass setting can be seen in summary in the struc?ture of the Dresden Missa from 1733. The expansive five-part choral writing, the large orchestral forces and the varied organization of individual movements prefigure the breadth and magnitude of the b minor Mass as a whole. The initial "Kyrie eleison" bears a similarity to the opening of the St. John Passion, representing humanity's joint plea for mercy. The opening stately chords were apparently a later addition to the movement, and lead directly into an expansive fugue with obligato orchestral accompaniment.
The "Christe eleison" is cast in the style of a Baroque operatic duet, perhaps in reference to the duality of Christ's divine and human natures, and his position as second member in the Trinity. The final "Kyrie eleison" returns to an older style of vocal polyphony, this time the orchestral parts simply doubling the voices.
Scholars have questioned whether the Mass in b minor is really the key of b minor, perhaps a trivial point, but certainly the issues of key and harmonic relationships figure importandy in the work, especially in this opening tripartite Kyrie. The three sections, differentiated in style and composi?tional technique, establish a sequence of key-relationships, b minor, D Major, and f-sharp minor, built on the notes of die b-minor triad. Bach also seems to have asso?ciated specific affects or emotional charac?teristics with certain keys, and b minor is his key of passive human suffering, the natural state of all humanity as they implore God's mercy in the Kyrie. But in the Mass as a whole the key of D, die relative major of b minor, is an equally important harmonic center, and is Bach's key of power and glory. Aldiough die Mass begins in b minor, it ends in D Major, synthesizing suffering and glory as central tenets of Christian belief.
The Gloria continues the stylistic diversity of the Kyrie, and in addition to the four large choral movements ("Gloria in excelsis DeoEl in terra pax," "Gratias agimus tibi" "Qui tollis peccata mundi" "Cum sancto spirilu") contains four equally large solo or duet movements with different instrumental obligatos (violin, flute, oboe and horn). This arrangement was important to the musical unity of the 1733 Missa, as the Kyrie and Gloria sections together contain at least one solo part for each of the five voices as well as a solo obligato from each orchestral group.
When Bach set about composing the Credo or "Symbolum Nicenum" some time
between 1747 and 1749, he conceived it as a nine-movement symmetrical structure. The pairs of choral movements at the beginning and end of the Credo section are based on liturgical chant melodies, used as a canlus firmus. Contained within these outer fram?ing sections are two solo movements which surround the Christological nucleus of the Credcr. three choruses on the incarnation of God ("Et incarnatus est"), the crucifixion ("Cruafixus"), and the resurrection ("Et res-urrexif). Stephen Daw writes that this Credo "somehow involves the community musically: its performance is ours even as we listen, whereas all that has gone before has been sung and played on our behalf."
Throughout the entire Mass, but particu?larly in the Credo, Bach encodes the music with hidden references, using numerology and the natural number alphabet: a=i, b=2, c=3, and so on. According to this numerical alphabet, the number of the word credo is 43 (c=3. R=17 E=5. 0=4, 0=14, remember?ing that I andj had the same number since they were interchangeable in eighteenth-century German). There are forty-three entries on the plainsong melody in the Credo section. Elided with the "Patrem omnipoten-tem" that follows there are 129 measures of music, or the credo number multiplied by the number of the Trinity (43 x 3). By this Bach encodes the profession of faith, "I believe in one God," with the implicit doc?trine of the godhead as a Trinity. Likewise, the number for the word christus is 112, and the Credo section taken as a whole has 784: the christus number multiplied by 7, die traditional number of the Church and also the number of times the word "Christus" is repeated in the text. These inter-relation?ships of number and doctrine were not at all meant to be perceived by the listener, but rather were an intensely private form of devo?tion Bach incorporated into the music, intend?ed perhaps only to be understood by himself and his God.
The Sanctus and following movements also belong to the 1747-1749 completion of the Mass, but nearly all have earlier origins. The Sanctus itself was written for a Christmas service in 1724, in aversion for three sopranos, alto, tenor and bass. The "Osanna" is the only double-chorus in the Mass, and is a remodeling of the opening chorus from the secular cantata "Preisedein Gliicke" bwv 215. The " Benedictus" is presumed to be a rework?ing of a now-lost piece. The "Agnus DeT began as a parody of a movement from the Ascension Oratorio, bwv 11, but in addition to some radical alterations there are extensive passages of newly-composed material. This concluding "Dona nobis pacem" repeats the music of the "Gratias agimus libi," emphasiz?ing Bach's conception of this movement as an expression of gratitude. The celebratory musical style for this final chorus still alludes to the particulars of its model: a chorus from a cantata celebrating the 1731 election of the Leipzig Town Council.
The original manuscript of the Mass in b minor concludes with the simple inscription "dsg," signifying Deo soli gloria, or 'To God, alone, the glory." Perhaps that devotion, above all else, is what inspired Bach to com?pile this grand summa of his sacred composi?tional voice. As the aging composer himself stated," die final aim and reason of all music is nothing other than the glorification of God and the refreshment of the human spirit."
Note by Luke Howard, Ann Arbor, 1996.
Thomas Sheets is an accom?plished and versatile con?ductor whose work with community choruses, academic institutions and opera companies has received widespread acclaim.
Appointed Music Director of the University Musical Society Choral Union in 1993, he is the tenth conductor to hold this position in the ensemble's 117-year history. In the past two seasons, he has prepared the UMS Choral Union for several notable per?formances given by the Detroit Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Neeme Jarvi and Jerzy Semkow, and by the Toledo Symphony under the direction of Andrew Massey.
In addition to conducting performances of Handel's Messiah with the Ann Arbor
Symphony Orchestra, Mr. Sheets conducts the Choral Union in these performances of Bach's Mass in b minor with the Toledo Symphony. In February, he collab?orated with the University Dance Company, faculty choreographer Bill
DeYoung and guest stage designer John Schak, conducting four performances of OrfFs Carmina Burana in which dancers joined the established musical forces.
Before moving to Ann Arbor, Mr. Sheets was Associate Conductor of two prominent Southern California choruses, the William Hall Chorale and the Master Chorale of Orange County, both conducted by his mentor, the distinguished choral conductor William Hall. During that time, he assisted in preparing all the major choralorchestral works in the current repertoire, in some instances for performances led by Robert
Thomas Sheets
Shaw, Jorge Mester.Joann Faletta and Michael Tilson Thomas. As chorusmaster in 1988 for Long Beach Opera's highly acclaimed American premiere of Szymanowski's King Roger, his efforts on behalf of the chorus received accolades from critics on four continents. He was engaged in the same role in 1992 for that company's staging of Simon Boccanegra, where the chorus again received singular plaudits.
Thomas Sheets is also Music Director of the 120-voice Toledo Symphony Chorale. He received the degree of Doctor of Musical Arts from the University of Southern California and has held appointments as Director of Choral Activities at several colleges and universities. Mr. Sheets is a frequent conference leader and clinician; his editions of choral music are published by Augsburg-Fortress, and he is a regular contributor of articles on choral music per?formance.
This performance marks Dr. Sheets' seventh appearance under UMS auspices.
Soprano Dominique Labelle is known for the luminous beauty of her voice, her com?mitted stage presence and the impeccable musicianship which she brings to her appearances in opera, concert and recital.
Engagements in Dominique Labelle's 1995-96 season included performances of the role of Michal in Handel's Saul with the Philharmonia Baroque and Nicholas McGegan, Micaela in concert performances of Carmen with the San Antonio Symphony, Haydn's The Seasons with the Cantata Singers in Boston, a recital of French repertoire under the auspices of the New York Festival of Song at New York's 92nd Street Y, Handel's Messiah with Boston's Handel and Haydn Society and Christopher Hogwood
and "Viennese Evening" concerts with the San Francisco Symphony, a recital at Boston's Fine Arts Museum, the world premiere of American composer John Mustro's orches?trated version of Dove Sla Amore and Charles Griffes' Three Poems of Fiona McLeod with the Jacksonville (Florida) Symphony, Mozart's Requiem and Vesperae solennes de confessore with the Orchestra of St. Luke's at New York's Carnegie Hall and these performances of Bach's b-minor Mass with the Toledo

Described by the Washington Post as "a model of style and charm, and an irresistible per?former," tenor David Gordon has appeared as soloist with virtually every major North American symphony orchestra, and with other prestigious orchestras and festivals on four continents. On the stages of the San Francisco Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Houston Grand Opera, Washington Opera, Hamburg Staatsoper, and other companies, he has performed more than six-hundred performances of fifty-nine operatic roles encompassing the music of Monteverdi, Handel, Haydn, Mozart, Smetana, Wagner, Moussorgsky, Leoncavallo, Verdi, Puccini, Strauss and Stravinsky.
Hailed as "one of the world's great Bach tenors," (Chicago Tribune), David Gordon has won special praise for his vibrant, stylish and communicative portrayal of Bach's Evangelist roles in hundreds of performances in North America, Europe and Japan. His recent St. Matthew Passion credits include the Los
Angeles Philharmonic under the baton of Peter Schreier; Musica Sacra at Carnegie Hall; the Berlin Radio Symphony; and at the Carmel Bach Festival and the Bethlehem Bach Festival. He also recently portrayed the St. John Passion
Evangelist with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra under Christopher Hogwood; with the German Chamber Orchestra, the Bach Choir of Bethlehem and at the Carmel Bach Festival.
Mr. Gordon's other recent engagements include the Simpleton in Boris Gudunov at the Lyric Opera of Chicago; Schumann's Faust with the American Symphony Orchestra at Lincoln Center; Wagner's Das Rheingold with The Cleveland Orchestra under Christoph von Dohnanyi; Bardolfo in Verdi's Falstafj'with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony and in Tokyo and Osaka with Maestro Ozawa and the New Japan Philharmonic; Tamino in Die Zauberflote with the Cincinnati Symphony under Lopez-Cobos; the Britten Serenade with the Kansas City Symphony; Rossini's Messa di Gloria with the Berlin Philharmonic; Britten's War Requiem with The Cleveland Orchestra; Monteverdi's 1610 Vespers with Helmuth Rilling and the Czech Philharmonic; and the world premiere of Charles Fueesll's Fu'nf Goethe-Lieder, written for Mr. Gordon and the Seattle Symphony.

Mr. Deas is a graduate of The Juilliard School, and is presently on the faculty of both the Westminster Choir College and Princeton University.
This afternoon's performance marks Mr. Deas' debut appearance under UMS auspices.
The University Musical Society Choral Union has performed throughout its 117-year history with many of the world's distin?guished orchestras and conductors.
The chorus has sung under the direction of Neemejarvi, Kurt Masur, Eugene Ormandy, Robert Shaw, Igor Stravinsky, Andre Previn, Michael Tilson-Thomas, Seiji Ozawa 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. In 1993, the Choral Union was appointed the resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.
Based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 170-voice Choral Union remains best known for its annual performances of Handel's Messiah. In January 1994 the Choral Union collaborated with Maestro Jarvi and the DSO in the chorus' first recording,
Kevin Deas
Tchaikovsky's Snow Maiden, released by Chandos Records in October of that year.
The long tradition of the UMS Choral Union 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. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion -a love of the choral art.
The UMS Choral Union makes its three-hundred sixty-ninth appearance under UMS aupsices with this afternoon's performance.
1995-96 launches The Toledo Symphony
into its fifty-second season. In this banner year, the orchestra will present over five hundred performances, including educa?tional programs, outreach activities and music services for everyone in the larger community. Audiences will top 250,000, including over 100,000 school children. In classrooms, concert halls, churches, audito?riums, senior centers and theaters, perfor?mances will take place in three states and in nearly one hundred communities.
In 1838, when Toledo was only one year old, an ensemble called the Mozart Society performed its first concert. Though many colorful organizations rose and declined in the intervening century, professional con?cert-making took root only with the 1955 arrival of Joseph Hawthorne. As Music Director, he awakened the city to the necessity of civic, corporate and private investment in top-quality musicians. His successors Serge Fournier (1964-1979) and Yuval Zaliouk (1980-1989) expanded the variety and quality of concerts and guest artists and established a permanent core orchestra of full-time musicians. Andrew Massey, Music Director since 1991, has increased the
orchestra's vigor and precision. His charm on and off the podium creates new friends wherever he goes, and has attracted many new young listeners to "serious" music.
The Toledo Symphony has been recog?nized by the National Endowment for the Arts as one of the best regional orchestras in the United States. The American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers has twice awarded it the Contemporary Music Programming Prize. A recent premiere of Charles Wourinen's Mission of Virgin was laud?ed in the Wall Street Journal and the Detroit Free Press. Major soloists like Van Cliburn, as well as fresh young stars like Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg and Simone Pedroni, bring the international music world to Toledo.
The orchestra performs in many concert halls, each one suited to different occasions: Classics Concerts at the Toledo Museum of Art, Pops, Casual and Young People's Concerts at The Stranahan Theater, Mainly Mozart at the Franciscan Center, Chamber Concerts at the Toledo Club, Music of Today at the University of Toledo Center for the Performing Arts and large special events at the Seagate Convention Centre. Churches, schools and theaters througout the region provide cultural partnerships through annual Symphony appearances. Other organizations whose orchestra needs are filled by the Toledo Symphony musicians include the Toledo Ballet, Toledo Opera, Toledo Repertory Theatre, Toledo Choral Society and "Music Under the Stars."
Managing Director Robert Bell recently received the 1993 Governor's Award for Arts Administration recognizing the Symphony's accomplishments in education, local and regional outreach and philanthropic support. In its commitment to reach the largest possi?ble audience, The Toledo Symphony is determined to remain an essential force of life througout the region.
The Toledo Symphony makes its debut appearance under UMS auspices urith this afternoon's perfor?mance. ?

John Taverner
Born c. 1490 in South Lincolnshire, England
Died October 18, 1545 in Boston, Lincolnshire
It is often held that John Taverner was the first truly renaissance composer in England. At a time when the great English composers of the late-fifteenth century slowly exhausted the resources of their complex gothic art, and distant Franco-Flemish com?posers such as Josquin des Pres and Heinrich Isaac led the way on the continent, Taverner emerged with a voice of astonishing freshness and depth. Taverner's carefully balanced melodic lines, slower harmonic motion and transparent scoring ultimately laid the stylis?tic foundations for the next generation of English church composers led by Tallis, Tye and Sheppard. The five-part Dum transisset Sabbatum, a respond for Matins on Easter Sunday, is among Taverner's most refined and subtle motets. The work is built around the unadorned plainchant (Dum transisset Sabbatum) which can be heard in the tenor as it moves steadily in note-values slightly longer than the surrounding voices. Tallis approached his setting of Dum Iransisset Sabbatum in a similar manner and with die same scoring as Taverner, although Tallis placed the plainchant in the highest voice part where it hovers like a halo over the more rhythmically active voices beneath it.
o salutaris hostia
In manus tuas
dum transisset sabbatum
In ieiunio et fletu
Absterge Domine
Thomas Tallis
Born c. 1505 in England
Died November 25, 1585 in Greenwich
Thomas Tallis, like his slightly younger contemporary John Sheppard, began com?posing during the end of Taverner's lifetime. Thus, their early works were written for the Sarum rite, the English form of Catholicism. Thereafter their careers were shaped by the remarkable changes in English liturgical observance surrounding the Reformation between the years c. 1530-1650; changes as broad as the strict implementation of the Anglican liturgy in the Prayer Book of 1549 to the sudden reversion to Catholicism under Queen Mary Tudor. Along with the changes in liturgy came changes in musical emphasis. During the 1540s there was a growing interest in psalm-settings and a corresponding scaling-down of masses and antiphons which were beginning to be received with scepticism at the end of Henry vm's reign. With Mary's accession in 1553, however, came a zealous revival of lavish set?tings of mass, Magnificat and votive antiphon which harked back to the early decades of the century. With Elizabeth 1 came a cautious acceptance of Latin music and while she was the monarch English sacred music, at least within the protected walls of the Chapel Royal, flourished for more than four decades.
Tallis's 0 salutaris hoslia and In manus tuas were written during Queen Elizabeth's reign and are set in a style that owes a good deal to the imitative techniques cultivated by continental composers. In both pieces very brief and adaptable motifs are combined to form a tight musical mosaic. O salutaris hos-
tia is unique in the way short motifs are stat?ed and then passed to the next lowest voice, creating a cascading effect which can be fol?lowed visually by the listener as the little themes make their way from left to right among the singers.
In manus tuas II and III
John Sheppard Born c. 1515 Died c. 1559
In stylistic contrast to Tallis's In manus tuas are the two settings of the same respond by John Sheppard. Sheppard's ver?sions surely date from earlier in the century and, unlike Tallis's, are based on the plain-chant. The mysterious musical atmosphere, which alternates between chant and com?posed polyphony, affirms that these works were written for ceremonial use, more specifically, for Compline sung from Passion Sunday through to Maundy Thursday. Sheppard's In manus tuas III is the most serene and inward-looking of his three known settings of diis respond. Here the simplicity and humility of the miniature text are beautifully conveyed by Sheppard, par?ticularly at the words "commendo spiritum meum" (I commend my spirit) where his sub?lime sense of dissonance is put to the most heartfelt use.
O Maria plena virtuta
Robert Fayrfax
Born April 23, 1464 in Deeping Gate,
Lincolnshire, England Died October 24, 1521 in St. Alban, Hertfordshire
Robert Fayrfax was possibly the most esteemed English composer of the generation
before John Taverner. He was favoured by Henry vm, who awarded him substantial benefices and made him a Knight of the King's Alms. Twenty-nine works by Fayrfax have survived, more than any other composer of his time, and some of his earliest works are contained in the magnificent Eton Choirbook. Together with his distinguished colleague, William Cornysh, Fayrfax helped in simplifying the overtly technical style typi?cal of late-fifteenth century English church music. He was often inclined to use sonorous harmonies as the key structural component in his music, rather than contra?puntal devices, and this afforded his music a particular appeal. As a result, Fayrfax's works enjoyed a healdiy currency in England for nearly a century after his death. Maria plena virlute is one of Fayrfax's most mature works, both in its harmonic and contrapuntal language. Perhaps the most unique aspect of the work is the consistent and varied use of elaborate duets.
William Byrd
Born 1543 in Lincoln, England Died July 4, 1623 in Stondon Massey, Essex, England
The composers of Fayrfax's generation enjoyed a rich legacy in England, and a somewhat nostalgic facet of English sacred music during the later sixteenth century was the occasional use of techniques reminiscent of these early-Tudor musicians. Not only did English composers continue to write Latin-texted music after the Reformation, they even produced works which took delight in just the type of late-medieval artifice that Protestantism was ostensibly trying to do away with. An example is William Byrd's impressive motet Cunctis diebus, first published in 1591 but probably composed slightly ear-
Her. This piece clearly pays homage to com?posers of the pre-Taverner generation, its formal structure resembling the votive antiphons of the early-sixteenth century. Obviously it could never be mistaken for a piece written 75 or 100 years earlier, yet there can be no doubt that Byrd was well aware of the connotations. One senses that Byrd, a Cadiolic in a country gone Protestant, was attempting to preserve his true musical ancestry.
Although Tallis and Byrd remained tena?ciously loyal Catholics after the Reformation and did compose a number of Latin pieces destined from clandestine services by recu?sants, many of their Latin-texted compositions might even have been used from time to time in Anglican services. In the Chapel Royal and collegiate chapels, Latin was both understood and allowed and this would help explain why Queen Elizabeth herself accepted the dedication of the 1575 Cantiones sacrae, a collection of 34 Latin motets by Byrd and Tallis published after the two of them were granted a monopoly on printed music. The very title of the collection helps to diffuse any possibility of a distinctly liturgical catholic function; it reads "Cantiones, quae ab argumento sacrae vocantuf (Songs, which by their argument are called sacred).
The following three motets by Tallis come from the Cantiones sacrae. In ieiunio etfletu, whose text is a dramatic plea to God to spare his people, shows Tallis clearly aligning his music to the sentiment of the words. Tallis often maintained an emotional distance from even the most penitential texts, but here his striking harmonies achieve a biting poignancy. Derelinquat impius opens with a remarkable use of word-painting very rare in Tallis's works; the inability of the godless to find their paths is depicted by the wayward opening melody which is taken up by each voice on unexpected degrees of the scale. The prayer Absterge Domine is a very lengthy work which is sometimes criticised for a lack
of cadences, a feature which was actually quite advanced for the time, particularly among Flemish composers such as Gombert and Clemens.
Stabat Mater
Richard Davy Born c. 1467 Died 1516
This program concludes with a work from the Eton Choirbook, a setting of the Stabat Mater by Richard Davy. The current reputation of English sacred music in Davy's time is based largely on the Eton repertoire. Surely there were many similar manuscripts at the time, but it is the only one to have come down to us. When it was compiled the Eton Choirbook contained nearly 100 compositions, but it has suffered consider?able damage and today only 54 pieces remain, only 43 of which are in perfect condition. The music of the Eton school reveals the great interest among late-medieval English composers in texts related to the Virgin Mary. This is not totally surprising, however, as the statutes of Eton College required the scholars to sing an antiphon dedicated to Mary before leaving school each day and, later in the evening, to sing an antiphon before the Virgin's image.
Davy's Stabat Mater is a lengthy motet scored in five voices and divided into several well-defined sections. The piece begins with a passage for just two voices which is in turn punctuated by a more forceful passage for the full choir. An alternation between smaller combinations of voices and the full chorus is then maintained throughout the course of the work yielding a musical struc?ture which frequently alters its scoring and sonority. This formal layout is typical of the Eton repertoire as a whole, and represents an approach to composition that is distinctly
English. The Eton Choirbook, like the chapel for which it was created, is one of the great treasures of medieval England.
O Dirk Freymulh, 1996
ince their founding by Peter Phillips in 1973, the Tallis Scholars have earned an unparalleled reputation as , the finest singers of Renaissance sacred polyphony. This London-based ensemble derives its name from sixteenth-century composer Thomas Tallis. While the music of Tallis and other well-known English, Franco-Flemish and Italian composers forms the foundation of the group's repertoire, the Tallis Scholars also explore and perform the works of lesser-known Renaissance masters of the Portuguese, Spanish and Russian schools.
In February of 1994, the Tallis Scholars were invited to Rome by the Vatican to per?form in the Sistine Chapel and at the historic Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore to celebrate the four-hundredth anniversary of Palestrina. The concert at the Basilica was filmed and released by Gimell Records as a stunning video. The ensemble has over thirty inter?nationally award-winning recordings on the Gimell label, which exists solely to record the work of the Tallis Scholars. In 1987 the group's recording of Josquin des Pres' Missa Pange lingua and Missa La sol fa re mi won Gramophone Magazine's Record of the Year, the first ever in its Early Music category to win that distinction. Other awards have included the top prize in Gramophone's Early Music Category (1991, 1994), the International Record Critics' Award, Prix Diapason D'or, and Premio Internazionale del Disco Antonio Vivaldi. In addition to a 1994 Christmastime appearance on ABC TV's Good Morning America show, the Tallis Scholars have been featured in British televi?sion documentaries including the popular South Bank Show. The ensemble's year-round touring schedule takes them throughout all of western Europe, Australia, Israel, the Far East and North America, as well as to major festivals across the globe.
Peter Phillips, educated at Oxford, has made an impressive reputation for himself as director of the Tallis Scholars, as well as the internationally respected scholar, broad?caster, author and entrepreneur. His first book English Sacred Music 1549-1649, was published by Gimell in 1991; he has also been a columnist for London's The Spectator, and is currendy Advisory Editor of The Musical 7tmesjournal. Phillips is also co-founder of Gimell Records (established 1981).
This evening's performance marks Mr. Phillips and the Tallis Scholars' debut appearance under UMS auspices.

About Indian instruments
The sitar is the most popular stringed instrument of India. It has existed there in its present form for approximately seven hundred years. It is fashioned from a seasoned gourd and teakwood. It has a track of twenty metal frets, with six or seven main playing strings above them and thirteen sympathetic resonating strings placed below. The sympa?thetic strings are strummed upon occasion with the little finger of the right hand insert?ed in the main strings. The instrument is tuned to the raga being played, and the main strings are plucked by a plectrum worn on the index finger of the right hand.
The tabla is the two-piece drum of India. The right-hand drum (the tabla) is tuned to the tonic, dominant and sub-dominant, and is often re-tuned with a hammer during a performance. The left-hand drum (or bayan) acts as the bass drum and is capable of many tones which can be varied by degrees of pressure from the base of the left palm.
The tamboura is a fouror five-stringed instrument which gives an essential drone background to all Indian music. It is tuned to the raga being performed and emphasizes the tonic, dominant and sub-dominant.
About Indian music
The system of Indian classical music known as Raga Sangeet can be traced back nearly two thousand years to its origin in the Vedic hymns of the Hindu temples. Unlike Western classical music, as much as ninety percent of Indian music may be improvised, depending on the artistic facility and creative imagina?tion of the performer. Our musical tradition is an oral one taught directly to the student by his guru rather than by the system of written notation used in the West.
The very heart of Indian music is the raga: the melodic form upon which the artist improvises his performance. A raga is a scientific, precise, subtle and aesthetic melodic form with its own specific ascending and descending movement consisting of either a full seven-note octave, or a series of six or five notes.
There are seventy-two basic melas, or parent scales, on which all ragas are based. The subtle difference in the order of notes, an omission of a dissonant note, an emphasis on a particular note and the use of micro-tones and other effects, all distinguish one raga from the other.
Every raga is also characterized by its own particular rasa or principal mood. The acknowledged order of these nine sentiments, or emotions, is as follows: romantic and erotic; humorous; pathetic; anger; heroic; fearful; disgustful; amazement; and peaceful. Each raga, in addition to being associated with a particular mood, is also closely con?nected to a particular time of day or a season of the year. Thus, via the rich melodies and rhythm of Indian music, every human emo?tion, every subtle feeling in man and nature, can be musically expressed and experienced.
In terms of aesthetics, a raga is the pro?jection of the artist's inner spirit: a manifes?tation of his most profound feelings and sensibilities. The musician must breathe life into each raga as he unfolds and expands it so that each note shimmers and pulsates with life and the raga is revealed vibrant and incandescent with beauty.
Next to be considered are the talas, or rhythmic cycles of a raga. There is a unique intricacy and rhythmic sophistication in Indian music. There are talas ranging from a three-beat cycle to 108 beats within a cycle! The divisions in a tala and the stress on the first beat, called sum, are the most important features.
Talas with the same number of beats may have stress on different beats (example: a bar of ten beats may be divided as 2-3-2-3 or 3-3-4 and 3-4-3). Within the framework of the fixed beats the drummer can improvise to the same extent as the main artists. The most exciting moment for a seasoned listener is when both musicians, after their individual improvisations, come back together on the sum. The most popular talas are:
Dadra: cycle of six beats divided 3-3 Rupak: cycle of seven beats divided 3-2-2 Jhaptal: cycle often beats divided 2-3-2-3 Ektal: cycle of twelve beats divided 4-4-2-2 Ada Chautal: cycle of fourteen beats divided
2-4-4-4 Teental: cycle of sixteen beats divided
Although overtones are very much a part of Indian music, there are no deliberate modu?lations and harmonies as in Western music. The existing harmony is in its simplest form and is more inherent to forget counterpoint, harmony and mixed color tones when he hears our music and to relax into the rich melody and rhythm of our ancient art. With an open mind, he will be introduced to a whole world of sound, of tones and micro-tones never heard before.
About the Classical Recital
The improvisational nature of Indian music requires the artist to take into consideration the setting, time allowed for his concert, his mood and the feeling he discerns in the audience before he begins to play.
Since our music is spiritual in origin, it is devotional in performance. The traditional recital begins with the alap section -the stately and serene exploration of the chosen
raga. After this slow, introspective, heartfelt, sometimes sad beginning, die musician moves on to the jor. In this part, rhythm enters and is developed and innumerable variations on the raga's basic theme are elaborated. There is no drum accompaniment in either the alap or the jor.
The alap and the jor evolve into the gat, the fixed composition of the raga. Here the drums enter with the wonderful rhythmic structure of the gat and its time cycle, the tala. A gat can be in any tala, either in slow, medium or fast tempo. The musician improvises on a variety of taans (musical phrases in different speeds) and todas (a combination of plucked passages). The gat (which can be anything between four to sixteen bars of fixed composition) is the vehicle the artist must return to after his improvisation.
While the Indian musician has complete freedom to improvise as he wishes, he may do so only as long as he does not depart from the format of the raga and tala.
The step-by-step acceleration of the rhythm in the gat finally culminates in die jhala: the final movement and climax of the raga. Here the music becomes more and more playful and exciting. Sawal jabab, the dazzling interplay and rapid exchange between the sitar and tabla, has the power to enthrall and amaze even the most uniniti?ated listener as it brings the raga to its con?clusion.
Often, at the conclusion of a recital, die musician may choose to play a thumri or dhun. This semi-classical style is much freer and is completely romantic, sensual and erotic.
Today, Indian classical music is a perma?nent part of Western culture. Many composers and musicians have been influenced by Indian music. The openness, willingness to learn, and sincere enthusiasm of Western audiences are a continuing source of inspi?ration and delight.
""? avi Shankar, the legendary A sitarisl and composer, is m India's mosl esteemed B musical Ambassador and a singular phenomena in k the classii al music woi Ids JL. Bni the Easi and West. As a performer, composer, teacher and writer, he has done more for Indian music than any other musician. He is well known for his pioneer work in bringing Indian music to Western culture. Before making a name for himself in India, he spent long years of dedicated study under his illustrious guru Bab Allaudin Khan learning the sitar and surbahar.
Always ahead of his time, Ravi Shankar has written two concertos for sitar and orchestra, violin-sitar compositions for Yehudi Menuhin and himself, music for flute virtuoso Jean-Pierre Rampal, music for Hosan Tamamoto, master of the Shakujachi and Musumi Miyashita -Koto virtuoso. He has composed many film scores (including Charlie, Gandhi and Genesis) and music for ballets and musicals. Raviji is an honorary member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters and is also a member of the United Nations International Rostrum of Composers. He has received many awards and honors from his own country and from all over the world, including eight doctorates, the Fukuoka Asian Cultural Grand Prize, the Padma Vibhushan and Desikottam. In 1986 he was appointed to Rajya Sabha, the upper house of the Indian Parliament.
The love and respect he commands both in India and throughout the world is unique in the history of music. He made is American debut in 1956 and quickly became an idol to the youth of America. He continues to perform regularly throughout the world at major universities and festivals. In 1989, this remarkable musician celebrated his fiftieth year of touring and the City of Birmingham Touring Opera Company com?missioned him to do a music theater piece. Thus was born Ghanashyam -A Broken Branch which created history on the British arts scene.
Perhaps no greater tribute can be paid to this genius than the words of his colleague, Yehudi Menuhin. "Ravi Shankar has brought me a precious gift and through him I have added a new dimension to my experience of music. To me, his genius and his humanity can only be compared to that of Mozart's."
This evening's performance marks Mr. Shankar's debut appearance under UMS auspices.

Thousands of school children annually attend UMS concerts as part of the UMS Youth Program, which began in die 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 die 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 die UMS season.

Ushers are responsible for working at every UMS performance in a specific hall (Hill, Power, or Rackham) for the entire concert season.
The ushers must enjoy their work, because 85 of them return to volunteer each year. In fact some ushers have served for 30 years or longer. Bravi Ushers!
