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.
Sincerely,
Kenneth C. Fischer Executive Director
Thank You Corporate Underwriters
On behalf of the University Musical Society, I am privileged to recognize the companies whose support of UMS though their major corporate underwriting reflects their position as leaders in the Southeastern Michigan business com?munity.

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 quiedy 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 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 die 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 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 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.
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).
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.
O'er the years, the Theater has undergone many changes. "Talkies" replaced silent films just one year after the Theater opened, and vaudeville soon disap?peared from the stage. As Theater attendance dwindled in tile '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 1 gso, 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 die future, the parish improved die acoustics of die 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 iggi. 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-

Don Quixote
Fantastic Variations on
a Theme of Knightly Character,
Op. 35 (1897)
Richard Strauss
Born June n, 1864 in Munich, Germany Died September 8, 1949 in Garmisch-Parlenkirchen, Germany
The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote de la Mancha ("El ingenioso hidalgo Don Quijote de la Mancha") by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, published in 1605, is widely regarded as the first modern novel. The hero is a fifty-year-old Spanish nobleman who, inspired by the reading of medieval stories about chivalry, sets out on a series of fantastic adventures. Identifying with the notions and the ideals of an obsolete world, he inevitably clashes with a reality that he refuses to acknowledge. Over the centuries, he became a symbol of a person to whom appearance is reality. His name gave rise to the English adjective "quixotic," meaning 'extravagantly chivalrous or romantic,' 'impractical,' or 'impulsive and often rashly unpredictable.'
Strauss was neither the first nor the last composer to write music on the Don Quixote theme. Purcell, Telemann, Mendelssohn, Rubinstein, Massenet and Falla are only some of the most important names (and we shouldn't omit Mitch Leigh's famous musical The Man of La Mancha). But it is probably fair to say that no musician has ever had a fuller understanding of the Knight of the Sorrowful Countenance or captured more facets of his personality than has Richard Strauss.
Don Quixote is also one of the tone poems that most directly anticipates the great operas that Strauss was to write. Strauss gave his score a markedly dramatic character by writ?ing a virtuosic part for solo cello that is
intended to personify the Don. (Occasionally, a solo violin shares in the honors.) The faithful squire Sancho Panza is represented by a solo viola, frequently assisted by bass clarinet and tenor tuba.
The tone poem consists of an introduc?tion, the presentation of the theme (actual?ly, as we shall see, several themes), ten varia?tions, and an epilogue (Strauss called it "finale"). Each variation is based on a given chapter in Cervantes's novel, but Strauss did not keep the original order of the episodes. Instead, by selecting the stories among many dozens in the book, he devised his own dra?matic sequence, in which combative episodes alternate with more reflective or lyrical ones.
The Introduction contains several of the work's main ideas, including the themes of Don Quixote and Dulcinea. These themes are woven together in a contrapuntal tex?ture of fabulous complexity, perhaps in an attempt to impress upon the audience the extent to which Don Quixote has been caught up in his fantasies. A final series of powerful orchestral chords, underscored by heavy drumstrokes, seems to indicate that he has in fact gone mad.
The solo cello and the solo violin now present Don Quixote's main theme in a graceful duo. A more jovial theme played by bass clarinet and tenor tuba and an (intentionally) long-winded viola solo serve as the "signature" of Sancho Panza (if this word can be applied to someone who can neither read nor write). Knight and squire are soon on their way. The windmills, which the Don takes for giants, are represented by a descending motif that clashes with the Don Quixote motif, and shatters it into pieces. But the Don bounces back and shows himself even more forceful than before: his motif begins in the major, rather than in the minor as earlier, and is played not by one but by three cellos (Variation 2). This warlike music leads right into one of the work's most famous tone-painting pas-
sages. The bleating of a herd of sheep, which the Don sees as a great army, is rendered by a series of extraordinary dissonances, played tremolo (with extremely quick repeats of the same tones) by the muted brass instruments.
Variation 3 is a dialogue between the Don and Sancho. At length, Don Quixote loses his patience with his gabbing squire, and gives him a lecture: the tempo slows down and the melody takes on a solemn tone (with frequent allusions to the beauti?ful Dulcinea). After this short respite, the Don throws himself back into combat: in Variation 4, a group of monks appears (chorale-like melody in the brass instru?ments). Our Knight engages in a fight and is almost immediately defeated, as his theme is once more fragmented and given a descending turn that doesn't stop until die lowest register of bass tuba and contrabas-soon has been reached.
Variation 5 is again more contemplation than action. A declamatory cello solo depicts Don Quixote musing about chivalry and Dulcinea. The latter thought sends him into the highest raptures, as we may hear from a short cadenza featuring a harp glis-sando, woodwind tremolos and scurrying string passages.
A lively pseudo-folksong, played by two oboes and accompanied by the tambourine, indicates the appearance of the peasant "Dulcinea" (Variation 6). Don Quixote's reaction is enlriistet (indignant), as die instruction to the solo cellist says. Then Sancho pays his respects to the puzzled young girl.
Variation 7 depicts the fantastic flight, where Don Quixote is tricked into believing he is actually flying through the air. This passage contains a humorous allusion to the "Ride of the Valkyries" from Wagner's Die Walkiire. The effect of die passage is enhanced by the wind machine and the persistent D pedal in the double basses, increasing and decreasing in volume.
In Variation 8, the Don and his faithful squire take a journey by boat (some commen?tators detected another reference to Wagner here, this time to the opening to Das Rheingold). The play of the waves is expressed by a lush polyphony of divided strings, sudden?ly interrupted by a few dry string pizzicatos (plucked notes): the boat is shattered by some great mill-wheels, and our heroes find themselves in the water, to be rescued by some friendly millers.
In the short Variation 9, the Don, rep?resented by a "fast and stormy" string pas?sage, encounters a pair of peaceful monks (a leisurely duo of bassoons) and, without any further ado, scares them away.
In Variation 10, a gendeman from Don Quixote's own village shows up, disguised as a knight. Since there seems to be no odier way to cure die Don of his folly, the gentle?man challenges his countryman to a duel. The Don is defeated, and has to accept the conditions imposed by die victor, who orders him to return home and lead a peaceful life. The warlike sounds of the duel soon give way to a calm and soft music, as Don Quixote embraces the quiet life of a shepherd. In the Finale, we hear a tender variant of the Don Quixote theme, but the old man is not destined to enjoy pastoral life for very long. In a passage somewhat reminiscent of Death and Transfiguration, Don Quixote breathes his last, and the work fades away to silence.
Symphony No. 5 in e minor, Op.64
Piotrllyich Tchaikovsky
Born May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk,
Viatka district, Russia Died November 6, 1893 in St. Petersburg, Russia
Despite his growing international fame, Tchaikovsky was constantly plagued by self-doubt. Early in 1888, he went on a three-
month European tour, conducting his own works with some of the world's finest orches?tras, was feted in Leipzig, Paris, London, and Prague, and made the acquaintance of Dvorak, Grieg, and Mahler. Yet his private life was not free from turmoil. He had recently lost one of his closest friends, Nikolai Kondratyev, and his sister Alexandra and his niece Vera were both seriously ill. It must have been hard to escape the thought that life was a constant struggle against Fate, a hostile force attempting to thwart all human endeavors.
After his return from abroad, Tchaikovsky decided to write a new symphony, his first in ten years. Characteristically, the first sketches of the new work, made on April 15, 1888, included a verbal program portraying the individual's reactions in the face of.immutable destiny, involving stages of resignation, chal?lenge, and triumph:
Introduction. Complete resignation before Fate, or, which is the same, before the inscrutable predestination of Providence. Allegro. (1) Murmurs of doubt, complaints, reproaches against XXX. (2) Shall I throw myself in the embraces of faith A wonder?ful program, if only it can be carried out.
Tchaikovsky never made this program public, however, and in one of his letters even went out of his way to stress that the symphony had no program. Clearly, the program was an intensely personal matter to him, in part because he was reluctant openly to acknowl?edge his homosexuality, which seemed to him one of the hardest manifestations of the Fate he was grappling with. Many people believe this is what the mysterious "xxx" in the sketch stands for. (In his diaries, Tchaikovsky often referred to his homosexu?ality as "Z"or "That.")
What, if anything, are we to make of all this Should we listen to Tchaikovsky's Fifth as a program symphony And anyway, how
concerned should we be about thoughts the composer never wanted to divulge, especially those regarding his sexual orientation
It is certain that the "program" had a deep influence on Tchaikovsky's thinking during the gestation period of the Fifth; without it, the symphony would not be what it is (in particular, the opening theme -the "Fate theme" -wouldn't return so ominous?ly in all four movements). At the same time, the "program" in itself is insufficient to explain the finished work as the "meaning" of many other themes is by no means always clear. Moreover, Tchaikovsky had already written a "Fate" symphony in his Fourth, for which a more detailed program survives. The similarities of the two programs do little to explain the great differences between the two works. (The program of the Fourth is problematic in itself: no sooner had Tchaikovsky written it down in a letter to Mme. von Meek than he found it hopelessly "confused and incomplete... ") As for the last question: while we obviously shouldn't be too preoccupied with a composer's most private thoughts and feelings, in Tchaikovsky's case we can't completely ignore them, since there is ample evidence to suggest that he was both unable and unwilling to separate his extra-musical preoccupations from his composing. (This is not necessarily true of other composers.)
The four movements of Tchaikovsky's Fifth are linked by a common theme, usually played by the brass instruments and appar?ently symbolizing the threatening power of Fate. English musicologist Gerald Abraham noted that this theme was taken almost liter?ally from an aria in Glinka's opera Zhizn' za tsarya (A Life for the Tsar), in which it was sung to the words "Ne svodi na gore" (Do not turn to sorrow). The theme is heard in the "Andante" introduction of the first
movement, soon to be followed by a more lyrical, lilting idea as we move into the faster "Allegro con anima" tempo. (The accompa?niment of the "fate" motif, however, remains present as a stern reminder.) The entire movement swings back and forth between lyrical and dramatic moments. We would expect it to end with the final fortissimo climax. Instead, the volume gradually decreases to a whisper. The mysterious last measures are scored for the lowest-pitched instruments in the orchestra: bassoons, cellos, double basses, and timpani.
The second movement is lyrical and dream-like, suggesting a brief respite from the struggle. The first horn plays a beautiful singing melody, eventually joined by the full orchestra. A second idea, in a slightly faster tempo, is introduced by the clarinet. Soon, however, an intense crescendo begins that culminates in the fortissimo entrance the Fate theme. The first theme returns, again inter?rupted by Fate; only after this second dramatic outburst does the music finally find its long-desired rest.
The third movement is a graceful waltz with a slightly more agitated middle section. Again we expect a respite from the fate theme and the emotional drama it represents. Yet before the movement is over, there is a short reminder, subdued yet impossible to ignore, on the clarinets and bassoons.
In the finale, Tchaikovsky seems to have taken the bull by the horns: the fate theme dominates the entire movement, despite the presence of a number of contrasting themes. At the end of a grandiose development, the music comes to a halt on the dominant (the fifth degree of the scale that serves as the opposite pole to the tonic, i.e. the keynote). There have been performances where some people mistakenly thought that the piece was over and started applauding. The final resolution, however, is yet to come, in the form of a majestic reappearance of the Fate theme and a short "Presto" where all
"doubts, complaints and reproaches" are cast aside and, against all odds, the symphony receives the triumphant ending it needed.
Notes by Peter Laki, program annotalor for The Cleveland Orchestra.
The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra was founded in 1936 by the famed Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman. The estab?lishment of the Orchestra created a focus of musical activity in Palestine and affirmed the impor?tance of musical culture in a land that still faced years of danger and uncertainty before its establishment as an independent state. In December 1936 the inaugural concert of the Palestine Orchestra, as the ensemble was then called, was conducted by the legendary Arturo Toscanini, himself an impassioned spokesman for freedom. He led "an orches?tra of soloists" -first-chair musicians in German and Eastern European orchestras who had lost their positions and were recruited by Huberman to join the new ensemble. With Israel's independence in 1948, the orchestra was renamed the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (ipo).
Since those early days, the Israel Philhar?monic has continued to maintain its central role in the nation's cultural life, even, or perhaps especially in times of national crisis. During the 1973 Yom Kippur War, for exam?ple, there was a concert every night. The Orchestra gives more than 150 concerts each year in Israel, where fourteen different concert series are presented in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa and other cities. In addition to performing in the major urban centers, the Israel Philharmonic appears in rural areas of the country and honors its traditional prac-
tice of giving free concerts for the armed forces.
The ipo has also traveled extensively abroad as an ambassador for Israel, begin?ning in 1937 with a trip to Egypt. Since first appearing in the United States in 1951, the Orchestra has toured the country many times, including a 1993 tour of summer music festivals such as Tanglewood, Ravinia, Saratoga and the Hollywood Bowl. The ipo has performed in many European countries as well, making a highly successful tour three years ago of such prestigious music festivals as Salzburg, Berlin and Lucerne. In December 1994, the Orchestra made a tour of Asia that included Japan, India (their first per?formance in Mr. Mehta's native country under his direction) and China, where they appeared for the first time. They received an especially enthusiastic welcome in Mr. Mehta's home city of Bombay, where their concert was televised live and seen by the largest audience ever to watch a performance of Western classical music in India -over 200 million people.
The Israel Philharmonic regularly records for the Sony Classical, Teldec, emi and Deutsche Grammophon labels. Their recordings with Music Director Zubin Mehta for Sony Classical include the four Brahms symphonies; a joint, live recording with members of the Berlin Philharmonic of Beethoven's Fifth Symphony and Psalm by Ben-Haim; symphonies by Bruckner and Mahler; the Sibelius Violin Concerto and Bruch's Scottish Fantasy with Midori as soloist; the Prokofiev Piano Concertos Nos. 2 and 4 with Yefim Bronfman; and music of Tchaikovsky, Sibelius, Mozart, Liszt and Rimsky-Korsakov. With Itzhak Perlman, they have recorded violin concertos by Bruch, Glazunov, Khachaturian, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky for AngelEMI. Future recording projects include a complete Mahler symphony cycle for Teldec, beginning with the sym?phonies Nos. 2, 6 and 8.
Throughout its distinguished history the ipo has collaborated with many of this cen?tury's greatest conductors, including Claudio Abbado, Sir John Barbirolli, Leonard Bernstein, Serge Koussevitzky, Kurt Masur, Zubin Mehta, Dimitri Mitropoulos, Pierre Monteaux, Eugene Ormandy, Paul Paray and Klaus Tennstedt. Its equally prestigious roster of soloists includes, among others, pianists Claudio Arrau, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Daniel Barenboim, Rada Lupu, Murray Perahia, Arthur Rubinstein and Rudolf Serkin; violinists Jascha Heifetz, Yehudi Menuhin, Shlomo Mintz, Itzhak Perlman, Isaac Stern and Pinchas Zukerman; cellists Pablo Casals, Jacqueline Du Pre, Yo-Yo Ma, Gregor Piatigorsky and Mstislav Rostropovich; flutist Jean-Pierre Rampal and singers Monserrat Caballe, Placido Domingo, Sherrill Milnes, Luciano Pavarotti, Roberta Peters, Leontyne Price, Beverly Sills and Richard Tucker.
Zubin Mehta was appointed Music Director of the Israel Philharmonic in 1969 and his appointment was extended for life in 1981. The late Leonard Bernstein, who maintained close ties with the ipo from the time of his debut in 1947, and whose influence is still felt today, was named Laureate Conductor in 1988. In 1992, the Orchestra appointed Kurt Masur Honorary Guest Conductor.
The Israel Philharmonic continues to uphold its historical commitment to absorb?ing new immigrants and to serving as a gath?ering point for Jewish musicians from all over the world. While more than half of the Orchestra's current members are native-born Israelis who are largely trained here, its ranks include many musicians who have emigrated from the United States and Eastern Europe, including over twenty-five new arrivals from the former Soviet Union, who have joined the ensemble in recent years.
The ipo has incorporated in its mission the nurturing and development of young musicians, and is committed to providing
opportunities for gifted artists. This is achieved through the Orchestra's scholarship programs, its support of the Young Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, its presentation of an annual Young Artists Concert, and its creation of the opportunity for young musi?cians to appear with it in an annual 'The Maestro and His Young Guests" youth con?cert. The Orchestra regularly commissions new works which are presented both in Israel and abroad, and maintains an active educational program to foster the growth of future audiences.
America has played a vital role in creating, as well as sustaining, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, recogniz?ing the importance of the Orchestra's role in Israel and through?out the world. American Friends of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is a national
organization committed to supporting the Orchestra through an endowment that enables the ipo to maintain its high musical standards, to undertake foreign tours, and to enhance its educational programs and opportunities for young artists. The organi?zation was established in 1980 by the joint vision of Fredric Mann and Zubin Mehta. Mr. Mehta serves as Co-Chairman of the American Friends with Itzhak Perlman.
This evening's performance marks the Israel Philharmonic's fifth appearance under UMS auspices.
ne of the leading W k orchestral and oper-

B m scene, Zubin Mehta
L W has been closely asso-
ciated with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra for more than three decades. He was appointed the Orchestra's Music Director in 1969, an appointment that in 1981 was extended for life. Mr. Mehta's concerts, recordings and tours on five continents with the Israel Philharmonic have resulted in more than 1600 performances.
Mr. Mehta first conducted the Israel Philharmonic in 1961, when both he and the Orchestra were twenty-five years old, and the bond established at that time has grown into what Mr. Mehta has called a "lasting marriage." His passionate allegiance to the Orchestra stems from his loyalty to the land of Israel and the kinship he feels with the Jewish people, because he shares the devotion to music that has always been an integral part of their spirit and tradition.
At times of war and crisis in Israel's history, Mr. Mehta has often canceled other obligations to be with the Orchestra in Israel. He has conducted concerts for soldiers at the front lines, and performed as well at national events such as the concert on Massada in October ig88, when he led Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony. Apart from trav?eling the world over, Mr. Mehta has also taken the ipo on memorable, emotional tours of Russia, Hungary and Poland, and, most recently, led the Orchestra on a tour of China and India. He considers his foreign tours with the Israel Philharmonic opportu?nities for presenting the essential qualities of Israel and the Jewish people to the public.
Zubin Mehta is a highly sought-after guest conductor with major orchestras and opera companies worldwide. During the current season, his engagements include
Zubin Mehta
performances with the Vienna, London, Berlin, Munich and Los Angeles Philhar?monic Orchestras. He leads Wagner's Siegfried at the Lyric Opera of Chicago as part of his ongoing, four-year "Ring" cycle with that company, and also conducts Aida at the Berlin Opera and Tristan und Isolde at the Vienna Staatsoper, where next season he will lead Jerusalem. Mr. Mehta currendy holds the post of Music Advisor and Chief Conductor of the Maggio Musicale Fiorenrino, where he recently completed a cycle of Mozart operas. His extensive discography with major orchestras includes recordings with the Israel Philharmonic on the Deutsche Grammophon, AngelEMI, Sony Classical and Teldec labels.
Born in Bombay, India, Zubin Mehta, a member of the Parsi community, inherited his obsession for music from his fadier, Mehli Mehta, a violinist who founded the Bombay Symphony and is now music director of die American Youdi Orchestra in Los Angeles. Zubin Mehta became an assistant of his father's ensemble at fifteen, memorized scores, and dreamed of a conducting career, but he was sent to the university as a pre-medical student. He soon abandoned these studies in favor of a life in music, however, and entere'd Vienna's prestigious Academy of Music at the age of eighteen. By die time he was twenty-five, he had led both die Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras. He has conducted both of these ensembles every season since Uien. Mr. Mehta served as Music Director of die Montreal Symphony (1961-1967) and of the Los Angeles Philharmonic (1962-1978).
Zubin Mehta held die post of Music Director of the New York Philharmonic from 1978 to 1991, the longest tenure in that orchestra's modern history. Highlights of his thirteen seasons in new York included major internadonal tours to Latin America, Europe, Asia and the Soviet Union, where in 1988 he led the New York Philharmonic in
a joint concert in Moscow with the State Symphony Orchestra of the Soviet Ministry of Culture; the establishment of regular con?certs by the New York Philharmonic Chamber Ensembles; the expansion of the orchestra's activities in the New York com?munity; and three concerts in May 1991 cel?ebrating the hundredth anniversary of Carnegie Hall.
Since leaving the New York Philharmonic, Mr. Mehta has put greater emphasis on conducting opera. His July 1992 performance of Tosca on location in Rome with Placido Domingo was telecast live in forty-five countries, and a second pro?duction of this opera, with Luciano Pavarotti, opened the season of the Royal Opera, Convent Garden, a few months later. That same year, Mr. Mehta led the Israel Philharmonic in a concert performance of Aida.
Zubin Mehta's numerous honors include the Nikisch Ring, bequeathed to him by Karl Bohm; the Vienna Philharmonic Ring of Honor, commemorating the twenty-fifth anniversary of his debut with that orchestra; and the Hans von Billow medal, bestowed on him by the Berlin Philharmonic. He is also the recipient of India's prestigious "Order of the Lotus" and honorary doctorates from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv University and the Weizmann Institute. In addition he has received the Defender of Jerusalem Award, is an Honorary Citizen of the City of Tel Aviv, and is the only non-Israeli ever to receive the Israel prize. Hebrew University also named a wing of its Musicology Department after Mr. Mehta and his father.
This evening's performance marks Maestro Mehta's seventh appearance under UMS auspices.

Dido and jEneas
Henry Purcell Born 1659 in London Died November 21,1695 in Dean's Yard, Westminster
Libretto by Nahum Tate Date of composition: 1689
Henry Purcell was born in 1659 and died in Westminster in 1695. He was a cho?rister in the Chapel Royal until his voice broke in 1673, an ne was tnen made assis?tant to John Hingeston, whom he succeeded as organ maker and keeper of the king's instruments in 1683. In 1677 he was appoint?ed composer-in-ordinary for the king's violins and in 1679 succeeded his teacher, Blow, as organist of Westminster Abbey. It was proba?bly in 1680 or 1681 that he married. From that time he began writing music for the theater. In 1682 he was appointed an organ?ist of die Chapel Royal. His court appoint?ments were renewed by James II in 1685 and by William III in 1689, and on each occasion he had the duty of providing a sec?ond organ for the coronation. The last royal occasion for which he provided music was Queen Mary's funeral in 1695. Before the year ended Purcell himself was dead. He was buried in Westminster Abbey on November 26, 1695.
Purcell was one of the greatest com?posers of the Baroque period and one of the greatest of all English composers. His earliest surviving works date from 1680 but already show a complete command of the craft of composition. They included the fan?tasias for viols, masterpieces of contrapuntal writing in the old style, and some at least of the more modern sonatas for violins, which reveal some acquaintance with Italian mod?els. In time Purcell became increasingly in demand as a composer, and his theater music in particular made his name familiar to many who knew nothing of his church
music or the odes and welcome songs he wrote for the court. Much of the theater music consists of songs and instrumental pieces for spoken plays, but during the last five years of his life Purcell collaborated on five "semi-operas" in which the music has a large share, with divertissements, songs, choral numbers and dances. His only true opera (i.e. with music throughout) was Dido and Eneas, written for a girls' school at Chelsea; despite the limitations of Nahum Tate's libretto it is among the finest of sev5 enteenth-century operas.
Dramatic music includes Dido and Eneas (1689) and semi-operas: Diocksian (1690); King Arthur (1691); The Fairy Queen (1692); The Indian Queen (1695); The Tempest (c. 1695); and songs and incidental music for over forty plays. Sacred music: sixty-five anthems. Other vocal music: twenty-four odes and welcome songs, court songs. Instrumental music: thirteen fantasias for viols, two in nomines for viols, Chacony, twenty-two sonatas, eight suites, five organ voluntaries.
Synopsis
Scene 1. The Palace
The Trojan war is over. Eneas and his people have found themselves in Carthage after a treacherous sea voyage. His destiny, as decreed by the Gods, is to found Rome, but he has become obsessed with Dido, Queen of Carthage. Her sister and confidante, Belinda, and other optimistic courtiers urge her to enjoy her good fortune, but the young widow Dido is anxious. Eneas arrives to ask the Queen, again, to give herself to him. Belinda notices, with relief, that Dido seems to be capitulating. Dido and yEneas leave together. Love triumphs.
Scene 2. The Cave
The evil Sorceress summons her colleagues to make big trouble in Carthage. Dido must
be destroyed before sunset. Knowing of .(Eneas' destiny to sail to Italy, the Sorceress decides to send a Spirit disguised as Mercury to tell him he must depart immediately. Since Dido and .(Eneas and the rest are out on a hunt, the witches plan to make a storm to spoil the lovers' fun and send everyone back home. The witches cast their spell.
Scene 3. The Grove
Dido and jEneas make love. Another triumph for the hero. The royal party enters and tells a story for .(Eneas' benefit. Dido senses the approaching storm. Belinda, ever practical, organizes the trip back to the palace. .Eneas is accosted by the false Mercury with diis command: "Leave Carthage Now." He accepts his orders, then wonders how to break the news to Dido. He is worried.
Scene 4. The Ships
.Eneas and the Trojans prepare for the jour?ney. The Sorceress and her witches are quite pleased to see that their plot is working. Once iEneas has sailed they will conjure an ocean storm. They are proud of themselves.
Scene 5. The Palace
Dido sees the Trojans preparing their ships. .Eneas tries to explain his predicament and offers to break his vow in order to stay with her. Dido is appalled by his hypocrisy. She sends him away and contemplates the inevitability of deadi. "Remember me but forget my fate." Dido dies.
ark Morris was
born and raised in Seattle, Washington where he studied with Verla Flowers and Perry Brunson. i He has performed with a diverse assortment of companies over the years, including the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, Hannah Kahn Dance Company, Laura Dean Dancers and Musicians, Eliot Feld Ballet, and the Koleda Balkan Dance Ensemble. Since 1980, in addition to creating over seventy works for the Mark Morris Dance Group, he has creat?ed dances for many ballet companies, including the San Francisco Ballet, the Paris Opera Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre. In 1990 he and Mikhail Baryshnikov found?ed the White Oak Dance Project. Mr. Morris has also worked extensively in opera. From 1988-1991 he was Director of Dance at the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the national opera house of Belgium. Mr. Morris was named a Fellow of the MacArthur Foundation in 1991 and is the subject of a recent biography by Joan Acocella (Farrar, Straus & Giroux).
Mark Morris Dance Group was formed in 1980 and gave its first concert in New York City that year. In addition to touring widely, the Dance Group has been the subject of television specials for pbs Dance In America series and London Weekend Television's South Bank Show. From 1988-1991, the Dance Group was the resident company of the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, Belgium. The Dance Group has recently completed two film projects, a collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma using J.S. Bach's Third Suite for Unaccompanied Cello and a film version of Henry Purcell's Dido and Eneas.
These performances mark the second, third and fourth appearances of Mark Morris and the Mark Morris Dance Group under UMS auspices.
Boston Baroque, founded in 1973 as "Banchetto Musicale," was the first permanent Baroque orchestra in North America. The ensemble presents an annual subscription concert series in Boston, where it has been a centerpiece of musical life for more than two decades, and it can also be heard on tour and on classical radio stations through?out the country.
Boston Baroque is now reaching an international audience with a critically acclaimed series of recordings on the Telarc label, including Handel's Concerti grossi, Op. 6, Nos. 1-6, Handel's Messiah (1992 Grammy nominee), Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, and the first period-instruments recording of a celebrated new completion of the Mozart Requiem by Robert Levin. The ensemble's latest recording, of Purcell's Dido and Mneas, will be released this summer.
Martin Pearlman, Boston Baroque's founder and music director, made his Kennedy Center debut last season, conducting The Washington Opera in twelve performances of Handel's Semele. Over the past twenty years, Mr. Pearlman has conducted critically acclaimed perfor?mances of orchestral and choral repertoire from Monteverdi to Beethoven. Highlights of his work in opera include Monteverdi's
Coronation oPoppea (for which he created a new performing edition), Rameau's Zoroastre and Mozart's Don Giovanni, broadcast nationally on public radio.
In addition to his work with period instruments, Mr. Pearlman conducts mod?ern orchestras and choruses. Recent engage?ments include the Minnesota Orchestra's subscription performances of Messiah and the music directorship of the Northwest Bach Festival. In 1993, Mr. Pearlman became the first conductor from the early-instrument field invited to per-
form live on the internationally tele?vised Grammy Awards show.
Martin Pearlman is also active as a com?poser. Following a con?cert of his recent works, the Boston Globe commented, "If fans of Boston
Baroque wonder why Pearlman's conducting is so insightful, it's because he knows, as only a composer can, how music goes."
These performances mark the Boston Baroque Orchestra and Maestro Pearlman's debut appear?ances under UMS auspices.

OCTANDRE
Edgard Varese
Born December 22, 1883 in Paris
Died November 6, 1965 in New York
In a commentary on Octandre, Varese explains the connection between the title and instrumentation: 'The title is clear: octandrious means 'with eight stamens.'" Correspondingly the work is arranged as an octet for four woodwinds, three brass and one double bass. But the title also points to the spatial aspect of this grouping, which creates a virtual octagon of sound. Octandre (more precise than "octet"), is also a study of movement structure, at the center of which is an exploration of the individual and collective timbre and register qualities of the eight instruments. Octandre is the only Varese work which exhibits a traditional three-movement structure. However, the movements overlap, thus demonstrating the eclectic conditions of a multifaceted and varied sound-aggregate, rather than tradi?tional "characters." We are given a precise structural clue to this natural-scientific riddle with the entrance of the oboe's evolving motif, comparable to a -mutatis mutandis -literary motto, which forcibly determines further events.
Varese, like Webern, draws the ear's attention to the structural and associative meaning of each dimension of the musical moment. However, unlike Webern's method of isolating the moment by surrounding it with spatially separated pauses, Varese, as Milton Babbitt once noted, isolates the uniqueness that a previously introduced characteristic can lend to an event. It is decisive that each repeating motif is not abstract, but rather an isolated and high?lighted quality of the moment.
Octandre vias performed for the first time in Frankfurt, Germany in 1930 and it left behind a clearly impressed, but also con-
fused young critic named Theodor W. Adorno: "I can report of the discovery of the Frenchman Edgard Varese. We heard his short Octandre for winds and double bass. The piece is very French and late-impres?sion istic in the total dissolvedness of the last melodic contour and in the extraordinary instrumental movement-art, which takes part in a rhythmic-homophonic structure. However, the harmonic freedom and the urgency with which exploded particles rush to the construction make it a composition that is far beyond everything that otherwise happens in the secure French music room. One could certainly question the substance, but before it gets to the point, a piece like this has such beautiful qualities in the process, that one must at first just accept it and defend it against much else."
Gejagte Form (Hunted Form)
Wolfgang Rihm
Born March ij, 1952 in Karlsruhe, Germany
I. "Hunted Form"
Hunt: Movement Form: Standstill There is the moment in which the hunt for (one) form turns into (its) form. But this moment is not stoppable and holdable; at best it can be conjured. Again and again. Shortly before and shortly afterward. But never at "its" place. Hunting forms: flying, fleeing forms (fugue). Malevich's "squares" are rectangles in flight. A corner is drawn out -have you already seen that But: it is inaudible...
II. "Hunted Form" is a piece of music, audi?bly written for instruments; the score was completed on February 12, 1996. (Completed) The composition is perhaps 15 minutes long Short High Wide Deep ... aha, we understand: Where would the archimedic point be
Yes, I dedicated the piece to my friend Helmut Lachenmann for his 6oth birthday. He also hunts. For forms. They sound differ?ent -as "every donkey hears".
III. Just now a bird flies through the glance I take out the window. It leaves behind the impression of a (its) form, yes even the impression of a (its) coloring. I realize "magpie". Why do I write that here I have been asked for an "introduction to the work" for "the American presenters". I cannot imagine that there is anyone in America who is not interested in birds that fly through my glance and are magpies. Or does anyone perhaps still seriously believe in a Santa Claus who derives the forumlas for the Christ-Child on the blackboard And then eats chalk
IV. Also here it is true: The individual intro?ductions that have some effect on the music (in a positive as well as a negative sense) are the ears of the listener. Out of pure love of freedom, I plead for extremely varied ears. On every head there should be installed at least two completely different passages to at least two completely different hearing styles. Does that work
But one should not set any solid norms here. Anyway, everyone hears what he can. A com?poser who must first invent the hearing for his music is poor, but also immeasurably rich.
V. Nature is very unjust: It also exists with?out us. We do not even want to know it so precisely. Thank God it is kept secret from us. Have I already mentioned that "Hunted Form" is a music piece But it is not a bird. Outside it is getting dark. "Music, that is again and again something completely dif?ferent", says somebody at the next table. There suddenly the window bursts the walls fly away it happens ... (The continuation follows -as always in music -"later".)

Chamber Symphony scratchband
John Adams
Born February 15, 194J in Worcester, Massachusetts
The Chamber Symphony, written between September and December of 1992, was commissioned by the Gerbode Foundation of San Francisco for the San Francisco Contemporary Chamber Players, who gave the American premiere on April 12, 1993-The world premiere performance was given in The Hague, Holland by the Schoenberg Ensemble in January of 1993.
Written for fifteen instruments and last?ing twenty-two minutes, the Chamber Symphony bears superficially suspicious resemblance to its eponymous predecessor, the Opus 9 of Arnold Schoenberg. The choice of instruments is roughly the same as Schoenberg's, although mine includes parts for syndiesizer, percussion (a trap set), trumpet and trombone. However, whereas the Schoenberg symphony is in one uninter?rupted structure, mine is broken into three discrete movements, "Mongrel Airs;" "Aria with Walking Bass" and "Roadrunner." The tide gives a hint of the general ambience of the music.
I originally set out to write a children's piece, and my intentions were to sample the voices of children and work them into the fabric of acoustic and electronic instruments. But before I began that project I had another one of those strange interludes that often lead to a new piece. This one involved a brief moment of what Melville called "the shock of recognition:" I was sitting in my stu?dio, studying the score to Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony, and as I was doing so I became aware that my seven year old son Sam was in the adjacent room watching car?toons (good cartoons, old ones from the
195OS) ? The hyperactive, insistendy aggres?sive and acrobatic scores for the cartoons mixed in my head with the Schoenberg music, itself hyperactive, acrobatic and not a little aggressive, and I realized suddenly how much these two traditions had in common.
For a long time my music has been conceived for large forces and has involved broad brushstrokes on big canvasses. These works have been either symphonic or oper?atic, and even die ones for smaller forces like Phrygian Gates, Shaker Loops or Grand Pianola Music have essentially been studies in the acoustical power of massed sonorities.
Chamber music, widi its inherendy poly?phonic and democratic sharing of roles, was always difficult for me to compose. But die Schoenberg symphony provided a key to unlock that door, and it did so by suggesting a format in which the weight and mass of a symphonic work could be married to die transparency and mobility of a chamber work. The tradition of American cartoon music -and I freely acknowledge that I am only one of a host of people scrambling to jump on that particular bandwagon -also suggested a furdier model for a music that was at once flamboyandy virtuosic and poly?phonic. There were several other models from earlier in die century, most of which I came to know as a performer, which also served as suggestive: Milhaud's La Creation du Monde, Stravinsky's Octet and L'Histoire du Soldal, and Hindemith's marvelous KLeine Kammermusik, a little-known masterpiece for woodwind quintet diat predates Ren and Stimpy by nearly sixty years.
Despite all the good humor, my Chamber Symphony turned out to be shockingly difficult to play. Unlike Phrygian Gates or Pianola, with their fundamentally diatonic palettes, this new piece, in what I suppose could be termed my post-Klinghoffer language, is lin?ear and chromatic. Instruments are asked to negotiate unreasonably difficult passages and alarmingly fast tempi, often to die inex?orable click of the trap set. But therein,
I suppose, lies the perverse charm of the piece. ("Discipliner et Punire" was the origi?nal tide of the first movement, before I decided on "Mongrel Airs" to honor a British critic who complained that my music lacked breeding.)
The Chamber Symphony is dedicated to my son Sam.

Scratchband was written expressly for the Ensemble Modern with that group's unique mixture of virtuosity and stylistic adaptability always in mind. The instrumentation is diat of a hybrid of a rock band. With the use of electric guitar, electric bass, drum set and amplified winds and synthesizers, the timbre and style of orchestration make it a close sib?ling to the pit band of CeilingSky, the 1995 song play I composed in collaboration with June Jordan and Peter Sellars.
During the preparation periods for the various productions of CeilingSky I noticed diat die traditional "rock" instruments were capable of extraordinary power and virtuosi?ty, but diat these abilities were rarely if ever realized in commercial music. Technical "chops" displayed by even the greatest of rock musicians -a Jimi Hendrix or an Eric Clapton, for example -tended to rest com?fortably within the accepted language of die tradition. Understanding and transcending this limitation may have been Frank Zappa's most lasting contribution to die future development of the art. Zappa understood diat die language of rock could be vasdy expanded by an informed cross-fertilization from the world of classical music. He chose musicians for his bands who could move beyond die simple structures of popular music and respond to his experiments in rhythm and counterpoint with skill and audacity.
For listeners familiar with my recent music, Scratchband will probably appear as a
strange shotgun wedding, one that marries the busy, terrier-like activity of the Chamber Symphony to the pop timbres of the CeilingSky score. As I write this note, the piece is barely more than half completed, so my comments are not unlike an attempt to fill in a personality sketch on the basis of a single ultrasound scan. What strikes me about the piece, however, is the way in which minimalist gestures are beginning to reappear in my music after a significant absence (the overture to CeilingSky being the only other significant exception).
After a frantic explosion of scales charg?ing up and down the gamut in a garish panoply of constantly shifting modes, the music stabilizes in the key of B major, boogeying back and forth across modal bor?ders that suddenly and dramatically alter the color and mood of the action. Eventually this hyperactive energy levels off into a series of panels that introduce motivic materials in a more formal "minimalist" guise. But the emotional underpinning here is far more volatile than in pieces from the 70s or 80s. Nevertheless this same volatility provides the stimulus for real virtuoso writing, a kind of writing that falls so naturally within the capac?ities of a grpup like the Ensemble Modern.

Conlon Nancarrow
Born October 27, 192 in Texarkana, Arkansas
Conlon Nancarrow, born in 1912 in Arkansas and having lived for over 50 years in Mexico, belongs to that group of American individu?alists and eccentrics to whom the music of the 20th century owes thanks for decisive impulses. With help of the mechanical as
well as electric piano (player piano), for which he primarily composes, he was suc?cessful in developing the time factor and its evolution in rhythm, meter and tempo into a structural musical medium.
After studying at the Cincinnati Conservatory and performing on trumpet in various jazz bands, Nancarrow went to Boston to study privately with Nicolas Slonimsky, Walter Piston and Roger Sessions. From 1937 to 1939 he took part as a mem?ber of the International Brigade in the Spanish Civil War. When, therefore, after his return to the U.S., his passport rights were to be withdrawn, he went in 1940 to Mexico, where he became a citizen in 1956.
According to Henry Cowell in New Musical Resources, Nancarrow, cut off from American musical life and disappointed by inadequate performances of his rhythmical?ly complicated compositions, turned to the mechanical (player) piano. In setting his scores directly onto the paper rolls of the automatically playing instrument, he won not only independence from the musicians and their interpretations, but also the neces?sary precision for the realization of his works. He has written about 50 Studies for Player Piano.
Characteristic for Nancarrow's style are extreme speeds and complex polyphonic structures, in which varying rhythmic, metric and temporal processes run, often simulta?neously. Recently he has also returned to composing for traditional instruments. Up through the late 1970's, he was completely isolated and only known to a small circle. Then, his recordings and music editions, awards, concert tours and performances of his works in the US earned him recognition as one of the most celebrated discoveries among composers of avant-garde music in this century.
His innovative musical conceptions have had a major impact. Nancarrow has inspired composers such as Gyorgy Ligeti,
Denys Bouliane and Manfred Stahnke as well as influencing American and European musicians and ensembles. His original Studies for Player Piano have also recently been heard live with the advent of grand pianos with Ampico-self-player-mechanisms. Furthermore the American pianist War Mikhashoff was successful in arranging a few of die early player piano studies for traditional instruments -heard on tonight's program
-and thereby expanding them in tone-color.
Study 1 for Player Piano, composed between 1947 and 1948, has a clear, sym?metrical structure. It begins slowly and with isolated sound-events, becomes generally faster and more dense, up to the climax in which five different tempos, meters and rhythms run together with five different melodies and harmonic models. This climax is also die turning point. From then on, the melodic figures run backwards, the chords unwind according to a different plan, and the positions are also switched: the texture becomes diinner, the movement slower.
In the middle section two different osti-nati are built up slowly, of which the upper one, rising and falling in diatonic chords, dominates. At the beginning an impression of acceleration is created through step-by-step shortening of the pauses; at the end, in keeping with the mirrorlike construction of the piece, a lengthening of the pauses is used to produce a ritardando effect. The harmonic-tonal language of the piece -as is common for Nancarrow -consists of a mix of chromatic and tonal elements, and the progress of the voices above and below the ostinati is regulated through inversion, sequencing, transposition and rotation of a few figures, whereby the rhythmic pattern and tempo units are handled as parameters of equal value.
Study 6 is one of two pieces in the set
-the other being 12 -which are clearly Spanish in character. 6 sounds like a kind of abstract tango, while 12 is reminiscent of
Flamenco guitars and voices. Just as in the blues-inspired pieces, however, what Nancarrow has done is never simply imita?tive or derivative of these sources, since in every case their stylistic boundaries have been considerably extended, amplified, elaborated. (In Studies 1, 5, g, and nearly all of those after 12, no such stylistic sources or associations are apparent at all -they are reminiscent or suggestive only of themselves, or of other Studies in the series.) If Study 6 suggests a tango, it is cer3 tainly like no other tango ever heard before! It begins with still another resultant ostina-to, in this case produced not by the simulta?neous sounding of two rhythmic patterns, but by their rapid alternation. Notated on two separate staves, one of which divides the bar into 5 parts, the other 4, successive groups of four tones in this accompanimen-tal osu'nato are placed alternately in die twos staves, creating an extraordinary rubato-effect. Against this, two, sometimes three voices (in A Major-minor) are heard, articu?lating a three-part subdivision of the same bar-lengdi. Once given these premises, the way the rest of the piece evolves is straight?forward enough, but it is one of the most beautiful pieces I know in the genre, rivaling analogous works in "Spanish style" by Debussy, Ravel, de Falla, et aL
Study 7 develops still further the possi?bilities of rhythmic organization based on duration-series, a procedure we have found earlier in Studies 4 and 5. Here three differ?ent series are used, along with their own dou?bly augmented forms, often simultaneously, creating textures of almost bewildering com?plexity. In spite of this complexity, however, Nancarrow manages to maintain a clarity in the formal oudines of the piece by a judicious manipulation and distribution of varying densities -the number of simultaneous voices or strata varying from one to a maxi?mum of eight (near the end of the piece).

"Frank Zappa and the Ensemble Modern -an unusual collaboration."
It came as a surprise to many that the rock legend Frank Zappa decided to work together with an ensemble specializing in New Music. But they forget that he had been composing "serious" music since the end of the 1950s, and had, for example, studied and admired Edgard Varese, a pio?neer of New Music who, at the time, was relatively unknown in America.
For its part, the Ensemble Modern had been experimenting for a few years in the border areas of serious music, with Ornette Coleman, Anthony Braxton, Heiner Goebbels and others.
In April 1991 a few of us visited Frank Zappa for the first time. At first it was only intended to be in regard to one new piece for the Frankfurt Festival. But when Zappa heard recordings of the Ensemble Modern, he spontaneously decided to create a con?cept for a complete evening with us.
In the prior 10 years, Zappa had almost exclusively composed on and for die music computer "Synclavier"-pardy because of his disappointment with orchestral musi?cians. With the Ensemble Modern he found not only excellent soloists, but also joy in playing, involvement and enthusiasm -and the necessary humor.
The individual pieces of The Yellow Shark were created in close communication between Zappa and the musicians. When we came to Los Angeles with 25 musicians for two weeks in July 1991, we improvised together and Frank learned about our musi?cal capabilities.
Most of the pieces had been composed by the time of our second rehearsal phase in July 1992. We constantly discussed the indi?vidual pieces, experimented, worked on the virtuosic demands of the music and, in the process, also eliminated some passages that were unplayable for us.
The collaboration with Frank Zappa in the last years of his life was one of the most exciting and exhilarating periods in the his?tory of the Ensemble Modern. As a sign of our great esteem for the American composer Frank Zappa, we are happy to perform three sections of The Yellow Shark at the end of tonight's program.

Music from The Yellow Shark
Comments of Frank Zappa and conductor peter rundel
"The Girl in the Magnesium Dress" (1983)
F.Z.: That was one of the Synclavier pieces on the Boulez album (The Perfect Stranger, 1984). I didn't know whether human beings would ever be able to play it, but we took the chance and generated the paperwork so people could try and play it. I didn't have to generate any parts or score for the version that was on the Boulez album, because it just came off the Synclavier and right on to the tape. To translate that into something people could read off of paper required quite a bit of manipulation. The title con?cerns "a girl who hates men and kills them with her special dress".
P.R.: This is one of my favorite pieces. I think it's a very, very beautiful piece, and I loved it from the first moment. In the begin-
ning, when we had our little fights with Frank, he often said after the first or second rehearsal that we'll never make it; the piece is impossible. And the musicians said, "No, we like the piece and want to do it, let's work on it and see how far it gets." I'm quite happy it stayed in the program. The instru?mentation is Boulez-ian, and what I like so much about it is the wild polyphony. The phrasing of the lines is not (like) contempo?rary music; it comes from rock or jazz. I think still it's problematic to play and to understand it. We changed it a lot from the original transcription in working with Frank.
"Get Whitey" (1992)
F.Z.: The title originally came because the first version, the prototype "Whitey " that was rehearsed in '91 when the group came to Los Angeles, which dealt only with the white keys on the piano. But this version is more chromatic. I was thinking about changing the title to something else, but the general opinion of people in the group was they liked "Get Wliitey".
P.R.: It's one of the so-called simple pieces, but from the texture of the melody it's very, very complicated. I think it's a very beautiful piece not only from the way the melody is built and weaves through the piece, but also in terms of harmony.
"GSpot Tornado" (1986) (Arrangement: Ali N. Askin, 1992).
F.Z.: During the '91 rehearsals, I came in one day, and a few of the musicians were try3 3 ing to play that tune. They really liked it for some reason, and asked whedier they could have an arrangement of it for the concert. It was another one of the pieces that was done on the Synclavier (it appears on the 1986 album Jazz from Hell). I printed out the data, turned it over to Ali, and he orchestrated it. The rest is history.
P.R.: I don't have to say anything. I love it. It's a really striking piece.
From the liner notes to The Yellow Shark
A native of New England, John Adams was born in Worcester, Massachusetts and spent his youth in Vermont and New Hampshire. The cultural ? and intellectual life of New England, particularly the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Harvard University had a deep effect on his development. He began the study of music theory and compo?sition at the age of ten while at the same time learning the clarinet from his father, an amateur musician with whom he played in marching bands and small orchestras during his teens.
After graduating magna cum laude from Harvard in 1969, Adams continued on at the same institution for two more years and
Frank Zappa
earned an ma in music composition, studying principally with Leon Kirchner.
In 1971 Adams moved to San Francisco where he quickly became involved in that city's active and varied new-music life. He taught for ten years at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and produced new music concerts, first for the Conservatory and later for the San Francisco Symphony. He created the "New and Unusual Music" series for the San Francisco Symphony and in 1983 became the orchestra's first composer-in-residence. A number of Adams's most successful orchestral works were written during that period, including Harmonium (1981), Grand Pianola Music (1982) and Harmonielehre (1985).
In 1985 Adams began a collaboration with the poet Alice Goodman and stage director Peter Sellars that resulted in two operas, Nixon in China and The Death of Klinghoffer, worldwide performances of which made them among the most performed operas in recent history. The Nonesuch recording of Nixon in China won a Grammy in 1989, and was named one of the "10 most important recordings of the decade" by Tim Magazine. A third stage work, Was Looking At the Ceiling And Then I Saw The Sky, an "earthquake romance" with a libretto by the poet June Jordan, was first presented in May of '95 at the University of California, Berkeley and went on to performances in Montreal, New York, Edinburgh, Helsinki, Paris and-Hamburg. Scored for seven singingactors and an on-stage-eight-piece band, this two-hour work is comprised of twenty-five pop songs that tell the story of seven young peo?ple living in present-day Los Angeles.
The range of Adams' work includes dance, video, live electronic music and film music. His music shows a particularly strong affinity for new sound sources and his use of synthesizers and samplers integrated with traditional instruments and voices has become a hallmark of his sound. In 1984 he
produced Hoodoo Zephyr, an album of text-less "songs" created entirely in his home stu?dio on synthesizers and samplers.
Among recent recordings are the Chamber Symphony, with the composer conducting the London Sinfonietta, Harmonielehre, conducted by Simon Rattle, The Death of Klinghoffer, conducted by Kent Nagano and the just-released Nonesuch recording of the Violin Concerto performed by Gidon Kremer.
Adams continues an active double life as a composerconductor, and has appeared as guest conductor with orchestras and opera companies both in the us and Europe. In the past few years he has conducted con?certs of his own and other music with, among others, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra, the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the Israel Philharmonic and the London Sinfonietta. He served as music director of the Cabrillo Festival in 1991, the Ojai Festival in 1994 and held the post of Creative Chair with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra from ig88-go. An honorary member of Phi Beta Kappa, Adams has also been a recipient of the California Governor's Award for Lifetime
John Adams
Achievement in the Arts and he is this year's recipient of the Cyril Magnin Award for Outstanding Achievement in the Arts in San Francisco. His Chamber Symphony received the 1994 Royal Philharmonic Award. In
1994 he served as Chief Marshall for the Harvard University Commencement, and in ig95 he was made a Chevalier of die Institute of Arts & Letters by the Ministry of Culture of France. His Violin Concerto received the
1995 Grawameyer Award in music composition.
This performance marks Mr. Adams' UMS debut.
The Ensemble Modern was founded in 1980 by members of the Junge Deutsche Philhar-monie (Young German Philharmonic) who wanted to concentrate exclusively on the interpretation of 20th century works. From the outset, die Ensemble made a commitment to performing the works of the Second Vienna School (Schoenberg, Webern, Berg) and important composers of the first half of the 20th century such as Varese, Ives and Weill.
With this as its mission, the Ensemble Modern closed a gap diat had existed in Germany since 1906 when Schoenberg wrote his first Chamber Symphony for 15 instruments -an ensemble of orchestral soloists. Over die years his chamber sym?phonies were followed by die works of sig?nificant composers for similar sized ensem?bles, but no permanent ensembles of diis size existed. The performance of these works was left to existing orchestras and ad hoc groups, generally without sufficient rehearsal time. In the 1970s the situation changed significantly, with the founding of the first soloist ensembles in England, France and finally in 1 g8o in Germany with the birth of the Ensemble Modern.
International recognition and respect came early on for the Ensemble with the first performances of the complete works of
Anton Webern in Berlin, Frankfurt and the state of North-Rhine-Westfalia in 1983. This project was presented in conjunction with the Junge Deutsche Philharmonic which performed the larger-ensemble scores. Shortly after these performances, the Ensemble received enough offers to provide an entire season of concerts and for the first time, the musicians could pay themselves modest concert fees. Solid support was developed at the Alte Oper Frankfurt and its resident Frankfurt Feste, the Berlin Festival, the Cologne Philharmonie and later, the Festival d'Automne Paris and the Vienna Konzerthaus.
The Ensemble sees Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony Op. 9, written in 1906 as its point of departure and chose this piece for its debut concert at the Deutschlandfunk in Cologne. This concert was presented with assistance from the Society for New Music (the German section of the iscm) and Reinhard Oehlschlagel of Deutschlandfunk Radio arranged for broadcast. Michael Karbaum of the cema Foundation provided the group's initial financial support.
Initially the Ensemble Modern remained under the management of the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie. However, the Ensemble's underlying principle of artistic self-determination in which the musicians themselves decide the significant artistic questions of program, conductor, perfor?mance location and media matters led to its becoming legally independent in 1987. From that point on, the musicians them?selves assumed all artistic and administrative responsibilities as well as the not insignifi?cant financial risk.
In keeping with this same ideal of artistic autonomy for the ensemble musicians, the Ensemble Modern does not have a resident conductor. The musicians have a strong commitment to the greatest possible open?ness and flexibility in styles and concepts. With no permanent conductor, the Ensemble
can maintain its principle by which its mem?bers collectively decide on the best way to present a program through thorough con?sideration of the repertoire to be played. The Ensemble has built a circle of conduc?tors whom the musicians regularly ask to the podium. Among them are Peter Eotvos, Heinz Holliger, Ingo Metzmacher and Hans Zender.
The Ensemble Modern gives approxi?mately l oo concerts yearly throughout the world. It has 20 full-time members, who come from eight countries but now live in Frankfurt when not on tour. Depending on the seating requirements of the selected repertoire, guest musicians are invited to join so that the Ensemble Modern can flex?ibly realize the most diverse programming ideas, from chamber music to large orchestral pieces such as the works of the late Luigi Nono.
The Ensemble has subscription series at the Alte Oper Frankfurt, the Kammermusiksaal of the Berlin Philharmonie, the Vienna
Konzerthaus and at the Frankfurt Opera House under the Cage-Title Happy New Ears in which each evening a masterwork of the 20th century is publicly rehearsed, lectured on and then performed.
The 1995-96 Season is another busy and artistically adventurous season for the Ensemble. Perhaps most exciting, the Ensemble is embarking on its first U.S. and North American tour with American con?ductorcomposer John Adams. The tour includes new works by John Adams and Wolfgang Rihm and selections from the Frank Zappa Yellmv Shark project. The Ensemble will perform in such major venues and series as the Kennedy Center in Washington, dc; the University Musical Society, Ann Arbor, Michigan; Lincoln Center in New York; and Performing Arts Chicago.
Tonight's performance marks the UMS debut of Ensemble Modern.
Ensemble Modern
outh 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 Bolieme 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 Traviata. These performances allow children to experience
opera that is fully-staged and fully-costumed with the same orchestra and singers that appear in the full-length performances.
On January 31, 1996, Wynton Marsalis and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra 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.
The UMS Youth Program has been widely praised for its innovative programs and continued success in bringing students to the performing arts at affordable prices. To learn more about how you can take advantage of the various programs offered, call the Education and Audience Development Director at 313.764.6179.
