University of Michigan
Ann Arbor
Dear Friends,
Thanks for coming to this performance and for supporting the University Musical Society by being a member of the audience.
The relationship between the audience and a presenting organization like UMS is a special one, and we are gratified that an ever expand?ing and increasingly diverse audience is attend?ing UMS events. Last year, more than 120,000 people attended UMS performances and relat?ed events.
Relationships are what the performing arts are all about. Whether on a ride to the airport withjessye Norman, enjoying sushi with Wynton Marsalis, visiting Dascola Barbers with Cecilia Bartoli, searching for antiquarian books with Andre Previn or escorting the Uptown String Quartet to Pioneer and Huron High Schools, each of these personal connections with artists enables us to get to know each other better, to brainstorm future projects and to deepen the special relationships between these artists, UMS and the Ann Arbor community.
Our Board of Directors now numbers 26 individuals, each bringing to their role unique knowledge, experience and perspective as well as a shared commitment to assuring the pre?sent and future success of UMS. What a privi?lege it is to work with a group of people whose vision of UMS is to make it the very best of its kind in the world.
That same vision is shared by members of the UMS staff, who this year invite all of the UMS family to celebrate the 25 years box office manager Michael Gowing has served UMS and this community. Michael has established a stan?dard of patron service that we're told is unmatched anywhere else in this business. Look for the acknowledgment in this program book to find out more about Michael and how you can participate in this season-long celebra?tion.
Last year, UMS volunteers contributed more than 38,000 hours to UMS. In addition to Board members, volunteers include our
Advisory Committee, usher corps, UMS Choral Union members and countless others who give of their time and talent to all facets of the UMS program. Thank you, volunteers!
Relationships with professional colleagues around the world are very special. There is a generosity of spirit in performing arts present?ing that I have rarely seen in other fields. We share our best ideas with one another at con?ferences, in publications, by phone and, increasingly, over the internet. Presenters are joining together more and more to commis?sion new works and to assure their presenta?tion, as we've done this year with William Bolcom's Briefly It Enters and Donald Byrd's The Harlem Nutcracker. I'm pleased to report that The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind, the stir?ring piece we co-commissioned and presented in April 1995 won the prestigious Kennedy Center Friedham Award for composer Osvaldo Golijov earlier this year.
The most important relationship is that with the community, and that means you. I care deeply about building and strengthening these relationships, whether it be with an indi?vidual patron who comes by the office with a program idea, with the leader of a social ser?vice organization who wishes to use one of our events as a fundraiser, with the nearly 40 school districts whose children will participate in our youth program, or with the audience member who buttonholes me in the lobby with a com?plaint.
Thanks again for coming to this event -and please let me hear from you with ideas or suggestions. Look for me in the lobby, or call me at my office at 313.647.1174.

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan
One of the oldest and most respected arts presenters in the country, the University Musical Society is now in its 118th season.
The Musical Society grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name "The Choral Union." During the fall and winter of 1879-80 the group rehearsed and gave concerts at local churches. Their first per-
formance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious ora?torio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was estab?lished in December 1880. The Musical Society includ?ed the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year pre?sented a series of concerts
featuring local and visiting artists and ensem?bles. Professor Frieze became the first presi?dent of the Society.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded gready and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts -internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through the Choral Union, Chamber Arts, Jazz Directions, Moving Truths, Divine Expressions, Stage Presence, Six Strings and many other series, the Musical Society now hosts over 75 concerts and more than 150 edu?cational events each season. UMS has flour-
ished with the support of a generous music-and arts-loving community which gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, the Power Center, the Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre experiencing the talents of such artists as Leonard Bernstein, the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonic Orchestras, the Martha Graham Dance Company, Jessye Norman, The Stratford Festival, Cecilia Bartoli, Wynton Marsalis, Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan and Ensemble Modern of Frankfurt.
Through educational endeavors, commis?sioning of new works, youth programs, artists' residencies such as those with the Cleveland Orchestra and The Harlem Nutcracker, and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor cam?pus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, the Musical Society is a sepa?rate not-for-profit organization, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individ?ual contributions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
UMS Choral Union
Thomas Sheets, conductor
Throughout its 118-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors.
In its more recent history, 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.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 180-voice Choral Union remains best known for its annual per?formances of Handel's Messiah each December. Three years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it was appointed resident large chorus of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In that capacity, the ensemble has joined the orchestra for subscription perfor?mances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff s Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis el Chloe and Prokofiev's Akksandr Nevsky. In 1995, the Choral Union began an artistic association with the Toledo Symphony, inaugurating the partnership with a performance of Britten's War Requiem,
and continuing with performances of the Berlioz Requiem and Bach's Mass in B minor.
In the current season, the UMS Choral Union again expands its scope to include per?formances with a third major regional ensem?ble. Continuing its association with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, the Choral Union will collaborate in January 1997 with Maestro Jarvi and the DSO to produce a second recording for Chandos Ltd. In March the chorus will make its debut with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining with them in a rare presentation of the Symphony No. 8 ("Symphony of a Thousand") by Gustav Mahler. This extraordinary season will culminate in a May performance of the Verdi Requiem with the Toledo Symphony.
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 com?mon passion--a love of the choral art.
For information about the UMS Choral Union, please call 313.763.8997.
Standing tall and proud in the heart of die University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is often associated with the best performing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the 20th Annual Ann Arbor May Festival, this impressive structure has served as a showplace for a variety of important debuts and long relationships throughout the past 83 years. With acoustics that highlight everything from die softest high notes of vocal recitalists to die grandeur of die finest orchestras, Hill Auditorium is known and loved diroughout die world.
Hill Auditorium is named for former U-M regent Ardiur Hill, who bequested $200,000 to die University for die construction of an audito?rium for lectures, concerts and odier university events. Then-UMS President Charles Sink raised an addidonal $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 widi die Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing the ever-popular Fifth Symphony of Beedioven. The following evening featured Verdi's "Manzoni" Requiem, a work diat has been performed frequendy diroughout the Musical Society's illustrious history. Among the many ardsts who have performed on the Hill Auditorium stage are Enrico Caruso (in
one of his only solo recitals outside of New York), Ernestine Schumann-Heink, Fritz Kreisler, Rosa Ponselle, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Jascha Heifetz, Ignacejan Paderewski (who often called Hill
Auditorium "the finest music hall in the world"), Paul Robeson, Lily Pons, Leontyne Price, Marion Anderson and, more recently, Yo-Yo Ma, Cecilia Bartoli, Jessye Norman, Van Cliburn, the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (in the debut concert of its inaugural tour) and the late Sergiu Celibidache conducting the Munich Philharmonic.
Hill Auditorium seated 4,597 when it first opened; subsequent renovations, which increased the size of the stage to accommodate both an orchestra and a large chorus (1948) and expanded wheelchair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
The organ pipes above the stage come from the 1894 Chicago Colombian Exposition.
Named after the founder of the Musical Society, Henry Simmons Frieze, the organ is used for numerous concerts in Hill throughout the sea?son. Despite many changes in appearance over the past century, the organ pipes were restored to their original stenciling, color and layout in 1986.
Hill Auditorium is slated for renovation, with funds currently being raised through the Campaign for Michigan. Developed by Albert Kahn and Associates (architects of the original concert hall), the renovation plans include elevators, expanded bathroom facilities, air conditioning, greater backstage space, artists' dressing rooms, and many other improvements and patron conveniences.
Until the last fifty years, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including University Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium and the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of studying human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will estab?lished the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund. It was this fund which subse?quently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, but also to estab?lish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more
remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher education, is the fact that neither of the Rackhams ever attended the University of Michigan.
Designed by architect William Kapp, Rackham Auditorium was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. In 1941, the Musical Society presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York performing three concerts in as many days, and the current Chamber Arts Series was born in 1963. Chamber music audiences and artists alike appreciate the intimacy, beauty and fine acoustics of the 1,129-seat auditorium, which has been the location for hundreds of chamber music concerts throughout the years.
Since 1980, Rackham Auditorium has also been the home for UMS presentations of the Michigan Chamber Players, a group of faculty artists who perform twice annually in free con?certs open to the public.
Celebrating twenty-five years of wonderful arts presentation, the Power Center for the Performing Arts was originally bred from a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate theatre for the performing arts. Hill Auditorium was too massive and technically limited for most productions, and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre too small. The Power Center was designed to supply this missing link in design and seating capacity.
In 1963, Eugene and Sadye Power and their son, Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University, and in the midst of a list of University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately interested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theatre. In the interest of including a wide range of the performing arts and humani?ties, the idea for the Power Center for the Performing Arts was born.
Auditoria, continued
Opening in 1971 with the world pre?miere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote), the Power Center achieves the seemingly contradic?tory combination of providing a soaring interior space with a unique level of inti?macy. Architectural features include the two large spiral stair?cases leading from
the orchestra level to the balcony and the well-known mirrored glass panels on the exterior. No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. In 1981, a 28,000 square-foot addition was completed, providing rehearsal rooms, shops for building sets and costumes, a green room and office space. At the same time, the eminent British sculptor John W. Mills was commissioned to sculpt portrait bronzes of Eugene and Sadye Power, which currently overlook the lobby. In addi?tion to the portrait bronzes, the lobby of the Power Center features two handwoven wool tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
The University Musical Society has been an active presenter in the Power Center for the Performing Arts from its very beginnings, bringing a variety of artists and art forms to perform on the stage. In addition to presenting artists in performance, UMS has used the Power Center for many educational activities, includ?ing youth performances and master classes.
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaudevillemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the Theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. The gracious facade and beautiful interior housed not only the theater, but nine stores,
offices on the second floor and bowling alleys running the length of the basement. As was the custom of the day, the Theater was equipped to host both film and live events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ, acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country.
Over the years, the Theater has undergone many changes. 'Talkies" replaced silent films just one year after the Theater opened, and vaudeville soon disappeared from the stage. As Theater attendance dwindled in the 1950s, the interior and exterior of the building were both modernized, with much of the intricate plaster work covered with aluminum, polished marble and a false ceiling.
Throughout the 1960s and 1970s, the 1,710-seat theater struggled against changes in the lilm industry, and the owners put the Theater. up for sale, threatening its very existence. The non-profit Michigan Theater Foundation, a newly-founded group dedicated to preserving the facility, stepped in to operate the failing movie house in 1979.
After a partial renovation in 1986 which restored the Theater's auditorium and Grand Foyer to its 1920s-era movie palace grandeur, the Theater has become Ann Arbor's home of quality cinema as well as a popular venue for the performing arts. Further restoration of the balcony, outer lobby and facade are planned in coming years.
The University Musical Society first began presenting artists at the Michigan Theater dur?ing the 199495 season, along with occasional film partnerships to accompany presentations in other venues. The Theater's acoustics, rich interiors and technical capabilities make it a natural setting for period pieces and mixed media projects alike. In addition to sponsoring a Twyla Tharp Film Series in 199697 (September 29-October 20), UMS presents four events at the Michigan Theater this season: Guitar Summit III (November 16), The Real Group (February 8), Voices of Light: "The Passion of Joan of Arc" with Anonymous 4 (Feb?ruary 16) and The Russian Village (April 11).
In June 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appointed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19, 1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father Charles E. Irvin was appointed pastor in June 1987.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 800 people and has free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splendid three-manual "mechanical action" organ with 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedi?cation, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the
Auditoria, continued
church a fabulous venue for presenting a cappell choral music and early music ensembles. This ' season, UMS presents four concerts at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church: Quink (October 27), Chanticleer (December 4), Chorovaya Akademi;i (March 15) and the Huelgas Ensemble (April 10)
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to establish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS most recently began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with a new programmatic initiative to present song recitals in a more appropriate and intimate venue, the Mendelssohn Theatre has become the latest venue addition to the Musical Society's roster.
Allen Pond & Pond, Martin & Lloyd, a Chicago architectural firm, designed the Mendelssohn Theatre, which is housed in the Michigan League It opened on May 4, 1929 with an original equipment cost of $36,419, and received a majoi facelift in 1979. In 1995, the proscenium curtain was replaced, new carpeting installed, and the seats refurbished.
During the 1930s through the 1950s, Mendelssohn Theatre was home to a five-week Spring Drama Festival, which featured the likes of Hume Cronin, Jessica Tandy, Katharine Cornell, Burgess Meredith and Barbara Bel Geddes. Arthur Miller staged early plays at Mendelssohn Theatre while attending college at U-M in the early 1930s, and from 1962 through 1971, the University's Professional Theatre Program staged many plays, both originals and revivals. Several went on to Broadway runs, including You Can't Take It With You and Harvey, which starred Helen Hayes and Jimmy Stewart.
The University Musical Society's presentatioi of four song recitals celebrating the bicentenni?al of Schubert's birth marks the first time in 58 years that UMS has used the Mendelssohn Theatre for regular season programming. The recitals feature baritone Sanford Sylvan (Januar
24), mezzo-soprano Sarah Walker (January 25), baritone Wolfgang Holzmair (February 17) and soprano Barbara Bonney (February 18).
Seen from miles away, this well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmark is the mailing address and box office location for the University Musical Society.
During a 1921 commencement address, University president Marion LeRoy Burton suggested that a bell tower, tall enough to be seen for miles around, be built in the center of campus representing the idealism and loyalty of U-M alumni. In 1929 the UMS Board of Directors authorized construction of the Marion LeRoy Burton Memorial Tower. The University of Michigan Club of Ann Arbor accepted the project of raising money for the tower and, along with the Regents of the University, the City of Ann Arbor, and the Alumni Association, the Tower Fund was estab?lished. UMS donated $60,000 to this fund.
In June 1935 Charles Baird, who graduated from U-M in 1895 and was the equivalent of today's Athletic Director from 1898-1908, pre?sented the University of Michigan with 570,000 for the purchase of a carillon and clock. These were to be installed in the tower in memory of Burton, former president of the University and a member of the UMS Board of Directors. Baird's intention was to donate a symbol of the University's academic, artistic, and community life a symbol in sight and sound which alumni would cherish in their Michigan memories.
Designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. The tower is 41 feet, 7 inch?es square at the base. Completed in 1936, the Tower's basement and first floor rooms were designated for use by the University Musical Society in 1940. In later years, UMS was also granted permission to occupy the second and third floors of the tower.
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 climb up to the observation deck and watch the carillon being played from noon to 12:30pm weekdays when classes are in session and most Saturdays from 10:15 to 10:45am.
A renovation project headed by local builder Joe O'Neal began in the summer of 1991. As a result, 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 donat?ed labor, materials and funds to this project
The university is currently replacing Burton Tower's 45-year old elevator, which is rumored to have come from the University Hospitals, wide enough for transporting gurneys and pianos alike. The elevator-replacement project should be completed by early 1997.

New Love Song Waltzes
Neue Liebeslieder Walzer, Op. 65 Johannes Brahms
Verzicht, o Herz, auf Rettung, dich wagend in der Liebe Meer! Denn tausend Nachen schwimmen zertrummert am Gestad umher!
Finstere Schatten der Nacht, Wogen und Wirbelgefahr! Sind wohl, die da gelind rasten auf sicherem Lande, Euch zu begreifen im Stande Das ist der nur allein, welcher auf wilder See sturmischer Ode treibt, Meilen entfernt vom Strande.
An jeder Hand die Finger
hatt' ich bedeckt mit Ringen,
die mir geschenkt mein Bruder
in seinem Liebessinn.
Und einen nach dem andern
gab ich dem schonen,
aber unwurdigen Jungling hin.
Ihr schwarzen Augen, ihr durft nur winken Palaste fallen, und Stadte sinken.
Wie sollte stehn in solchem Strauss, mein Herz, von Karten das schwache Haus
Wahre, wahre deinen Sohn, Nachbarin, vor Wehe, weil ich ihn mit schwarzem Aug' zu bezaubern gehe.
Listen: nothing will save you if you go sailing on the sea of love. It's caulked with countless wrecks; their cargoes so much flotsam.
Who, sitting at home,
snug in his favorite armchair,
dreams the terror
of shifting shadows
and boiling seas
But the wanderer,
lost on the open sea,
far from home,
he thinks of armchairs.
I used to flash a fistful of rings, presents from my favorite brother. Dammit! I gave every single one to that two-timing stud I loved.
Ebony eyes,
you only have to glimmer and kings shiver, continents wither.
Come the coup what will you do, heart of mine, how resist the unbeatable
Neighbor, protect your son from a broken heart. See me spin my magic all night long.
O wie brennt das Auge mir, das zu zunden fordert! Flammet ihm die Seele nicht, deine Hutte lodert.
Rosen steckt mir an die Mutter, weil ich gar so trube bin. Sie hat Recht, die Rose sinket, so wie ich entblattert hin.
Vom Gebirge Well' auf Well' kommen Regengusse, und ich gabe dir so gern hunderttausend Kusse.
Weiche Graser im Revier, schone stille Platzchen! O wie linde ruht es hier sich mit einem Schatzchen!
Nagen am Herzen
fuhl ich ein Gift mir;
kann sich ein Madchen
ohne zu frohnen zardichen Hang,
fassen ein ganzes
wonne beraubtes Lebenentlang
Ich kose suss, mit der und der, und werde still und kranke; denn ewig, ewig kehrt zu dir, o Nonna, mein Gedanke!
Alles, alles in den Wind sagst du mir, du Schmeichler! Alle sammt verloren sind deine Muh'n, du Heuchler!
Einem andern fang' zu lieb stelle deine Falle! Denn du bist ein loser Dieb, denn du buhlst um alle!
If warm smiles and hot looks
don't ignite him,
know I'm an expert at arson.
I'm white as a shroud, mother, but I wear red roses; because the rose, like me, will bleed its leaves when it dies.
Water streams down the hills and the rain doesn't stop; I wish I could shower you widi a hundred thousand kisses.
In our secret place in the shade, down among the rustling grass, we're out of this world and dreaming and time ticks away too fast.
A poisoned arrow infects the target of my heart; how can a beauty like her turn down a chance like me, pleasure spiced with pain
I'll whisper like this to lots of girls while I'm feeling bad; all the better to let you know, Nonna, it's you who's making me sad.
I won't hear another word about love;
you'll only let me down.
You'll never stop playing around.
Leave me alone, you sweet-talking clown.
If you must set traps,
go hunt innocent prey.
A wounded bird's bound to beware
so-called trust, snares.
Schwarzer Wald,
dein Schatten ist so duster!
Armes Herz,
dein Leiden ist so druckend!
Was dir einzig werth,
es steht vor Augen
Ewig untersagt
ist Huldvereinung.
Nein, Geliebter, setze dich mir so nahe nicht! Starre nicht so brunstiglich mir in's Angesicht!
Wie es auch im Busen brennt, dampfe deinen Trieb, dass es nicht die Welt erkennt, wie wir uns so lieb.
Flammenauge, dunkles Haar, Knabe wonnig und verwogen, Rummer ist durch dich hinein, in mein armes Herz gezogen!
Kann in Eis der Sonne Brand, sich in Nacht der Tag verkehren kann die heisse Menschenbrust athmen ohne Glutbegehren
Ist die Flur so voller Licht, dass die Blum' im Dunkel stehe Ist die Welt so voller Lust, dass das Herz in Qual vergehe
Nun, ihr Musen, genug! Vergebens strebt ihr zu schildern, wie sich Jammer und Gluck wechseln in liebender Brust. Heilen konnet die Wunden ihr nicht, die Amor geschlagen; aber Linderung kommt einzig, ihr Guten, von euch.
Text from Polydora by G.E Daumer Translation by Linda France
So many trees, pitch-black, shadows playing tricks... my heart is full of rocks. Will we never be together Must I always go about sighing like this
Sweetheart, don't sit quite so near to me. Don't gaze at me quite so wistfully.
Even though you're on fire, stay cool and keep your distance in case everyone finds out how much I love you, love.
Sparkling eyes, glossy hair, tender words, true feeling -enough to send me reeling, set on the one I love.
Can sunbeams splinter into snow
Can morning sleep under a canopy of stars
Can passion say no
to love's sweet manacles
Do the fields bask in sunlight so that flowers might shrivel in darkness Do youth and love go hand in hand so that I end up alone and pining
Now listen to me, you Muses...
It doesn't really work,
does it You trying to summarize
the good and bad that comprise
a lover's smitten heart.
You can't heal the bloody holes
arrows leave. All you can do is soothe.
Be kind.
Love Song Waltzes
Uebeslieder Walzer, Op. 52 Johannes Brahms
Rede, Madchen, allzu liebes, das mir in die Brust, die Kuhle, hat geschleudert mit dem Blicke diese wilden Glutgefuhle!
Willst du nicht dein Herz erweichen Willst du, eine uberfromme, rasten ohne traute Wonne, oder willst du, dass ich komme
Rasten ohne traute Wonne nicht so bitter will ich biissen. Komme nur, du schwarzes Auge, komme wenn die Sterne grussen.
Am Gesteine rauscht die Flut, heftig angetrieben. Wer da nicht zu seufsen weiss, lernt es unter'm Lieben.
O die Frauen, o die Frauen, wie sie Wonne thauen! Ware lang ein Monch geworden, waren nicht die Frauen!
Wie des Abends schone Rothe mocht' ich arme Dime gluh'n, Einem, Einem zu gefallen sonder Ende Wonne spruh'n.
Die grune Hopfenranke
sie schlangelt auf der Erde hin.
Die junge schone Dime,
so traurig ist ihr Sinn!
Du hore, grune Ranke!
Was hebst du dich nicht himmelwarts
Du hore, schone Dime!
Was ist so schwer dein Herz
Speak to me, you with the beautiful smile that slices me in two. Tell me how you feel.
Will you lock yourself up and throw away the key How many times do I have to say when, when can we meet
Why sentence yourself to a life without love Why suffer You and me and your dark eyes, let's dance by the light of the stars.
Waves batter the rocks, spray the sky like madness. Love will teach you its secrets: how to sigh and drown in sadness.
You're a goddess. You're divine. I worship your every move. I could live like a monk if it weren't for women like you.
I could burn with the beauty of a crimson sunset. I would consider it my duty if I just heard her say yes.
Why does this evergreen ivy always creep so dark and low Why does such a gorgeous girl look like she's got nowhere to go
Why doesn't ivy climb
right up to the skies
Why should a girl
like her be all tears and sighs
Wie hobe sich die Ranke, der keine Stutze Kraft verleiht Wie ware die Dime frohlich, wenn ihr der Liebste weit
Ein kleiner, hubscher Vogel nahm den Flug zum Garten hin, da gab es Obst genug. Wenn ich ein hubscher, kleiner Vogel war', ich saumte nicht, ich tate so wie der.
Leimruten-Arglist laudert an dem Ort; der arme Vogel konnte nicht mehr fort. Wenn ich ein hubscher, kleiner Vogel war', ich saumte doch, ich tate nicht wie der.
Der Vogel kam, in eine schone Hand, da tat es ihm, dem Glucklichen, nicht an. Wenn ich ein hubscher, kleiner Vogel war', ich saumte nicht, ich tate so wie der.
Wohl schon bewandt war es vorehe
mit meinem Leben, mit meiner Liebe.
Durch eine Wand, ja durch zehn Wande
erkannte mich des Freundes Sehe.
Doch jetso, wehe,
wenn ich dem Kalten auch noch so dicht
vor'm Auge stehe,
es merkt's sein Auge, sein Herze nicht!
Wenn so lind dein Auge mir, und so lieblich schauet, jede letzte Trube flieht, welche mich umgrauet.
Dieser Liebe schone Glut, lass sie nicht verstieben! Nimmer wird, wie ich, so treu, dich ein Andrer lieben!
Am Donaustrande, da steht ein Haus, da schaut ein rosiges Madchen aus.
Ivy can't reach the heavens without some sturdy support. A girl can't enjoy herself when she and her beau are apart.
One day a pretty little bird flew into a garden brimming with ripe fruit. If I were a pretty little bird I'd fly there too.
It got tangled in a knot of branches and couldn't fly anywhere anymore. If I were a pretty little bird I'd stay at home.
A beautiful lady cradled the bird in her hand and stroked it softly, softly. If I were a pretty little bird I'd fly there now.
Every day was wonderful when we were still in love. My door was always open and he made himself at home. Now it's a different story: when I look at him he turns away, his eyes as cold as his heart.
When you look at me with your loving eyes, I forget all my worries. You're the sun in my sky.
Let it shine forever, this summer love of ours. I couldn't burn as hot in anyone else's eyes.
I know a rosy-cheeked girl who lives in a house deep in the woods.
Das Madchen es ist, wohl gut gehegt, zehn eiserne Riegel sind vor die Thure gelegt.
Zehn eiserne Riegel, das ist ein Spass, die spreng' ich als waren sie nur von Glas!
O wie sanft, die Quelle sich durch die Wiese windet! O wie schon, wenn Liebe sich zu der Liebe findet!
Nein, es ist nicht auszukommen
mit den Leu ten;
Alles wissen sie so giftig
Bin ich heiter, hegen soil ich lose Triebe;
bin ich still, so heisst's ich ware irr' aus Liebe.
Schlosser auf!
und mache Schlosser
ohne Zahl!
Denn die bosen Mauler
will ich schliessen
Vogelein durchrauscht die Luft, sucht nach einem Aste. Und das Herz, ein Herz begehrt's wo es selig raste.
Sieh', wie ist die Welle klar, blickt der Mond hernieder! Die du meine Liebe bist, liebe du mich wieder!
She's locked away
behind a door
secured with ten iron bars.
Iron bars are nothing to me. I'll smash them one by one like glass.
How clear the stream flows, winding its way through the meadow. How happy you feel, finding love, waiting where you left it.
I'm sorry, I've had enough of die neighbors; they go out of their way to make up gossip.
If I'm happy, they say,
I'm terribly bad.
If I'm sad, they say
I'm in love, stark raving mad.
I will employ a locksmith to fit a hundred padlocks of every shape and size to shut those lips forever that open and spill lies.
A bird will fly for miles
to find the right somewhere to nest.
We must do the same
to find the someone we love best.
The moon shines full and bright on the clear blue sea. Tell me you love me tonight. You're the only one for me.
Nachtigall, sie singt so schon, wenn die Sterne funkeln. Liebe mich, geliebtes Herz, kusse mich im Dunkeln!
Ein dunkeler Schacht ist Liebe, ein gar zu gefahrlicher Bronnen; da fiel ich hinein, ich Armer, kann weder horen noch seh'n; nur denken an meine Wonnen, nur stohnen in meinen Weh'n.
Nicht wandle, mein Licht, dort aussen im Flurgereich!
Die Fusse wurden dir, die zarten, zu nass, zu weich.
All uberstromt sind dort die Wege, die Stege dir;
so uberreichlich thrante dorten das Auge mir.
Es bebet das Gestrauche, gestreift hat es im Fluge ein Vogelein. In seiner Art erbebet die Seele mir, erschuttert, von Liebe, Lust, und Leide, gedenkt sie dein!
Text from Polydora fry G.F. Daumer English translation by Linda France
The nightingale sings so fine when the stars start to shine. Kiss me, sweetheart, while it's dark. Tell me you'll always be mine.
Love is a bottomless pit
of suffering. And I fell in.
I lost everything I was.
Although I dream of better times,
all I seem to do is whine.
Darling, wait, don't go wandering in the countryside. It's far too wet underfoot.
I admit it: I was there
this morning and the paths
are still damp from my tears.
I can see the branches trembling
in the wake of a bird in flight.
That's how my heart feels -tight
and busy with beating, remembering
you -our love, our lust, and our loathing.
ark Morris was born and raised in Seattle, Washington where he studied with Verla Flowers and Perry Brunson. He has performed with an eclectic array of companies in the early years of his career, including the Lar Lubovitch Dance Company, Hannah Kahn Dance Company, Laura Dean Dancers and Musicians, Eliot Feld Ballet, and the Koleda Balkan Dance Ensemble. In 1980, he formed the Mark Morris Dance Group and he has since created over ninety works for the Dance Group, as well as choreographing dances for many ballet companies, including the San Francisco Ballet, the Paris Opera Ballet, and American Ballet Theatre. From 1988 1991 he was Director of Dance at die Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the nation-
al opera house in Belgium. During his tenure there, he created twelve pieces including three evening-length works: The Hard Nut (his comic-book inspired version of The Nutcracker); L'Allegro, UPenseroso ed il Moderato, and
Dido and Eneas, and founded the White Oak Dance Project with Mikhail Baryshnikov. Mr. Morris is noted for his musicality -he has been described as "undeviating in his devo?tion to music" -and for his "ability to conjure so many contradictory styles and emotions." He has worked extensively in opera as both a choreographer and a direc?tor. Most recently, he directed and choreo?graphed a production of Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice, and he will direct and choreograph a Royal Opera, Covent Garden production
of Rameau's Platee which will premiere at the Edinburgh International Festival in 1997. Mr. Morris was named a Fellow of the MacArthur Foundation in 1991, and he is the subject of a biography by Joan Acocella (Ferrar, Straus & Giroux).
Mark Morris Dance Group was formed in 1980 and gave its first concert that year in New York City. In the following years, the company's touring schedule steadily expanded to include cities both in the US and in Europe and, in 1986, the Dance Group made its first national television pro?gram for the PBS Dance in America series. In 1988, the Mark Morris Dance Group was invited to become the national dance com?pany of Belgium. During its three years as resident company of the Theatre Royal de la Monnaie in Brussels, the Dance Group was the subject of several television programs, including the UK's South Bank Show. The company returned to the US in 1991 as one of the world's leading dance companies, performing across the US and at major international festivals. The Dance Group has maintained and strengthened its ties to sev?eral cities around the world -audiences have become accustomed to the Group's regular and frequent appearances in Boston, MA, Berkeley, CA, at the Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival and the Edinburgh International Festival in Scotland. In addition to a full international touring schedule, the Dance Group has recently completed two film pro?jects: a collaboration with cellist Yo-Yo Ma entitled Falling Down Stairs using Bach's Third Suite for Unaccompanied Cello, and a film version of Mr. Morris' Dido and Eneas, both scheduled to air around the world during the 1996-97 season.

Gaspar Sanz
Born in 1640 in Calanda, Aragon, Spain Died in 1710
Gaspar Sanz was both an outstanding Spanish guitar virtuoso and composer of the late seventeenth century. In the PassacaUe de la cavalleria de Napoles you can hear the arrival of the riders on horseback, and the Canarios is one of the most famous themes in guitar literature, used by the renowned twentieth-century composer Joaquin Rodrigo as the final movement of his popu?lar guitar concerto, Fantasia para un gentil-hombre.
Michael Praetorius
Born on February 15, 1571 in Cruezburg an der
Werra, Thuringia (now Germany) Died on February 15, 1621 in Wolfenbuttel
These three dances are taken from Terpsichore (1612), a compilation of over 300 dance tunes from the court of King Henry IV of France. Here the stately Courante, reserved Ballet and lively Volte are grouped together reflecting a common practice in the sixteenth century. Praetorius was a devout man whose compositions were pre?dominantly religious; yet, he is chiefly remembered for this dance collection, here arranged for solo guitar by Patrick Russ.
Antonio Vivaldi
Born on March 4, 1678 in Venice Died on July 28, 1741 in Vienna
It was said that Vivaldi could create music faster than a copyist could write, as his 450 concertos and some forty operas attest. A brilliant colorist who wrote well for all instruments, he mastered every form of his day and counted among his admirers J. S. Bach. The Concerto in D remains the favorite
baroque concerto for guitar or lute. Set in the fast-slow-fast, three movement form introduced by Vivaldi, this work of true nobility reveals the wide range of virtuoso possibilities for the plucked instrument.
Alberto Ginastera
Born on April 11, 1916 in Buenos Aires Died on June 25, 1983 in Geneva
Alberto Ginastera is one of the out?standing figures in his generation of Argentinean composers. Drawing his inspi?ration from the folklore of his native coun?try, his compositional technique is charac?terized by unique harmonic development and compact form.
Andrew York
Born in 1958
Composer Andrew York states, "Jubilation is a new work based on my composition Sunburst (1986). The introduction was written especially for Mr. Parkening (for his latest recording, Angels' Glory, with soprano Kathleen Battle), giving the piece a unique presence in his hands."
Isaac Albeniz
Born on May 29, 1860 in Camprodon, Spain Died on May 18, 1909 in Cambo-les-Bains, France
A brilliant pianist, Albeniz created music that is vividly Spanish. Rumores de la Caleta, based on the traditional flamenco Malaguena, is a dance of the fandango fami?ly. Although originally written for the piano, this transcription by Parkening uncovers the instrument which inspired its birth, the guitar.
Heitor Villa-Lobos
Born on March 5, 1887 in Rio de Janeiro Died on November 17, 1959 in Rio de Janeiro
In 1924, Brazilian composer and guitarist Heitor Villa-Lobos met Andres Segovia in Paris and they became lifelong friends. Maestro Segovia encouraged him to continue writing for the guitar. Villa-Lobos wrote Cinq Preludes (dedicated to his wife) and Douze Etudes (dedicated to Segovia) as part of his prolific output resulting from that exhortation.
Carlo Domeniconi
Born in 1947
Italian-born Domeniconi spent three years in Istanbul in the late 1970's and there developed his unique musical synthesis of East and West. He comments that Koyunbaba is "a pastorale, inspired by the beauty of a small brook I visited in the southwest of Turkey. (It) conjures up the image of a shepherd (Koyun means "sheep" and Baba means "father"), watching over his flock." Using a unique tuning of the guitar (openly producing a c-sharp minor chord), with only one of the strings at normal pitch, the effect of Mid-Eastern lyricism and modality is strik?ing in both the opening "Moderato" and breathtaking "Presto" movements.
Peter Warlock
Born on October 30, 1894 in London Died on December 17, 1930 in London
Peter Warlock, a pseudonym adopted by the sharp-penned music critic Philip Heseltine to hide his own compositions from retribution, conceived the Capriol for string orchestra in 1926 and later transcribed it himself for full orchestra. The six movement suite, transcribed
here by Patrick Russ for solo guitar and string quartet, is based on sixteenth-century popular dance tunes (in much the same wayjoaquin Rodrigo adapted the Sanz pieces heard earlier in this program for his Fantasia para un gentil-hombre). The Capriol melodies were taken from Orchesographie (1589), a dance manual in which the author carries on a dialogue with the fictitious Capriol to explain the steps. A courtly Basse-Danse (where feet are never lifted from the floor) begins, then a graceful Pavane, followed by the lively Tordion. The Bransles is a peasant round dance that gives way to the almost hypnotic Pieds-en-l'air. Mattachins, the sword dance, allows a rapid dueling between the guitar and the quartet to end the suite in fiery fashion.
Program notes by John Nelson
Christopher Parkening is celebrated as one of the world's preeminent virtu?osos of the classical gui?tar. For more than a quarter century, his con?certs and recordings have received the highest worldwide acclaim. The Washington Post cited "his stature as the leading guitar virtuoso of our day, combining profound musical insight with complete technical mastery of his instrument." Parkening is recognized as an heir to the legacy of the great Spanish artist Andres Segovia, who proclaimed that "Christopher Parkening is a great artist -he is one of the most brilliant guitarists in the world."
Mr. Parkening's rare combination of dra?matic virtuosity and eloquent musicianship has captivated audiences around the world from New York to Tokyo. He has played at the White House, performed twice on the televised Grammy Awards, appeared with Placido Domingo on "Live from Lincoln Center," and performed at the Carnegie Hall 100th Anniversary cele?bration. He has appeared on many national?ly broadcast television programs, including the Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, Good Morning America, CBS Sunday Morning, the Today Show, 2020, and was a guest artist this season on the Disney Channel He has also been voted "Best Classical Guitarist" in a nationwide readers' poll of Guitar Player
magazine for many years running, and was placed in their "Gallery of Greats" along with Andres Segovia, John Williams, and Julian Bream.
Parkening has been a frequent guest soloist with the finest orchestras in the United States, including the Philadelphia, Cleveland, and Minnesota orchestras; the Chicago, Pittsburgh, and National sympho?ny orchestras; the Detroit, Houston, and St. Louis symphonies; the St. Paul and Los Angeles chamber orchestras; and the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl. His extensive recital schedule takes him throughout the country, with regular appearances in New York, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington DC, Houston, and Los Angeles.
Parkening's commitment to music extends beyond his demanding performance
schedule. Each summer, he teaches a master class at Montana State University in Bozeman, Montana. He has also authored The Christopher Parkening Guitar Method, Volumes I and II, basic pedagogy books for begining and advanced players.
Christopher Parkening resides in Southern California. At the heart of his dedication to performance, recording, and teaching is a deep commitment to the Christian faith. He is also a world class fly-fishing and casting champion who has won the International Gold Cup Tarpon Tournament (the Wimbledon of fly-fishing) held in Islamorada, Florida.
Tonight's performance marks Christopher Parkening's debut under UMS auspices.
In a ten-day period in 1983, the Colorado Quartet made history with the receipt of chamber music's two highest honors: the Naumberg Chamber Music Award and First Prize at the Banff International String Competition. Since that time it has been praised on four continents as one of the finest quartets of our time, cited for its musical integrity, impassioned playing, and dynamic finesse. Currently residing in the New York City area, the Colorado Quartet appears regularly in major halls around the globe. The 1994-95 season took them from coast to coast in the US with engagements that include perfor?mances at New York's Lincoln Center, in Philadelphia, Houston, and Los Angeles, along with a tour of Alaska. During the sum?mer of 1994, the Quartet visited Lincoln Center's Mostly Mozart Festival in New York and the Tivoli Festival in Denmark. Highlights of past and present seasons include concerts at Carnegie Hall's "Quartets Plus" and Lincoln Center's "Great Performers" series: Washington D.C.'s Kennedy Center, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, and the Casals (Puerto Rico), Tivoli (Copenhagen), Stavanger (Norway), and Brno (Czechoslovakia) Festivals. The Colorado Quartet has been featured on radio and television programs in The Netherlands, Norway, and Puerto Rico, along with numer?ous American broadcasts, including the National Public Radio series "Performance Today." Their recordings include CD's of Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart.
The Quartet is equally at home perform?ing standard literature or newer works and has played a major role in inspiring contem?porary compositions. Among the many com?posers whose works the ensemble has pre?miered are Ezra Laderman, Karel Husa, George Tsontakis, and Jan Krzywicki. The
Quartet received a consortium commission grant from the National Endowment for the Arts in 1985.
The Colorado Quartet has held teaching residencies at Swarthmore and Skidmore Colleges and at Philadelphia's New School of Music. They are currently Music Directors of the Soundfest Chamber Music Festival and Institute of String Quartets in Falmouth, Massachusetts.
Tonight's performance marks the Colorado String Quartet's debut under UMS auspices.

Opening Musical Reverence
The invocation prayer is offered to the gods and particularly to St. Thangtong Gyalpo, who was the founder of Tibetan Opera. The artists in procession consecrate the stage with prayer and the burning of incense.
Masked Spiritual Dance (Shanak) The Black Hat Dance: This is the dance of sorcerers who through their knowledge and the practice of the Tantric arts, destroy the powers of evil. This dance is symbolically associated with the assassination of the despot king Lang Dharma by Lhalung Palkyi Dorji in the seventh century AD. Llalung Palkyi Dorji was believed to have had a simi?lar costume with broad sleeves from which he drew a bow and arrow and shot at Lang Dharma while the king was reading an announcement from a stone column. The dancers carry in their hands a sacred demon dagger to destroy the forces of evil and also a human skull cap to offer libation to the Buddhist deities.
Sertri Ngasol (Dhomey Dance)
The birthplace of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. Various types of folk songs, jokes, and storytelling in die Amdo Region of Tibet are generally popular. This performance origi?nated in 1709 when the Amdo Labrang Tashikhil monastery was established. The costumes are from Nomadic Amdo and die ladies' hat is worn from die rime of King Songsten Gampo of Tibet.
Step Dance with Tibetan Traditional Lute
Dranyen Shapdo: The Dance of the Lute Players. Four young men perform a variety of quick stepping dances, accompanied by the rapid, catchy music of die Tibetan lute of Dra-nyen. The dance and music are typi?cal of Lhasa and die songs were popular in die taverns of die capital many years ago.
Pureng Dance, Purmo Pang-Gyen Metok (Presenting Butter Flowers to the God) This spectacular dance is from the Pureng region of western Tibet where the Tibetan civilization has flourished for several cen?turies. During the third day of the first Tibetan month, all the top echelons of the Shepel Ling monastery and the public gath?ered together to watch various colorful per?formances.
Solo Song (Homage to Penchen Rinpoche)
"Panchen Chungsi Rinpoche, you are today the youngest prisoner of the world," is a song based on modern music. It is in dedi?cation to all Tibetans for Panchen Rinpoche who has sacrificed his life for Tibet and is also a prayer for the well being of the pre?sent reincarnation of Panchen Rinpoche, Gedun Choekyi Nyima, the youngest prisoner of the world.
Doe Drodung
(Drummers Dance of Summoning)
The Drum Dance: This is one of the oldest dances in Tibet, the origin of which is popu?larly ascribed to the completion of the famous Samye Monastery and its historic inauguration. Whilst dancing, the perform?ers sing a song in praise of His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. This particular dance tradition is from the district of Lhoka, located to the south of Lhasa.
Part Two:
Chant Dance by Gyutoe Monks
Ralpa (Gypsy Dance)
In eastern Tibet of Kham, there were groups of wandering gypsies who traveled from village to village singing and dancing. Most of their songs were in praise of the great Yogi Milarepa and his disciple Rechungpa. Their dances were spectacularly acrobatic.
Tashi Shoelpa (Ancient Art of Opera)
The Dance of Good Luck: This group of dancers represents the oldest company in Tibet. The dance serves to emphasize the Tibetan peoples' good fortune in having His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, as their leader. The dancers toss handfuls of tsampa (barley flour) into the air as an offering to the deities and spirits.
Achi Yullu (Celebration of the Harvest) When the farmers in the Tsang region of Tibet rejoice at the golden harvest, a three day festival is organized. The first day peo?ple go into the fields in festive dress, the sec?ond day for horse races, and the third day for archery. At the end of the program, the beautiful girls offer Chang, or barley, to their beloved once and celebrate the occasion. Please join us for this festival.
Yaktse (Prosperous Nomadic life) The Dance of the Yaks: This is an
extract from a Tibetan Opera and depicts the life of a nomad family and their yaks. The nomad lady milks the female yak called Dri and makes butter. She then sings a song offering the fresh butter to His Holiness, the Dalai Lama. The yak is the Tibetan National Animal.
Ngonpa Rignga
(Purification Dance for World Peace)
The Ritual Dance of the Hunters: This is a ritual stage purification dance that is performed before the commencement of every Tibetan opera. The masked characters who do the dance are called Ngonpas or Hunters and are supposed to represent the deity Vajrapani. The girls wearing five panelled crowns with large rosettes over their ears serve as a cho?rus and represent Dakinis or celestial beings. At the end of the dance, everyone on stage tosses handfuls of tsampa into the air to pro?pitiate the Gods and pray for the peace and prosperity of all sentient beings.
Tibetan National Anthem
The Tibetan Institute of Performing Arts -TIPA (Tibetan Song and Dance Ensemble) was founded in 1959. In I960, con?cerned with the preserva?tion of authentic Tibetan performing arts, His Holiness, the Dalai Lama, established the Council for Religious and Cultural Affairs under whose auspices TIPA functions in Dharamsala, India.
TIPA (Tibetan Song and Dance Ensemble) subsequently developed a research depart?ment responsible for collecting traditional songs, dances, and acting methods from within the Tibetan community. Currently, TIPA consists of fifty-five artists who perform traditional songs, dances, and musical rever?ences. The support staff includes skilled artisans who create elaborate and colorful
masks, costumes, and instruments used in performances, thereby insuring the authen?ticity of the performance.
Throughout its illustrious career, TIPA has performed internationally, including engagements throughout the capitals of Europe, Australia, and Asia. The ensemble is under the patronage of His Holiness, the XTV Dalai Lama.
Tonight's performance marks the debut of The Tibetan Song and Dance Ensemble under UMS auspices.

Sweet Fields opens the program with a deeply moving air of spirituality, employing a col?lection of traditional American choral music. Included in the piece are selections of William Billings' Anthems and Fugueing Tunes of the 18th Century, conducted by Paul Hillier; the shaker spiritual collection Simple Gifts, performed by the Boston Camerata; and the shape note collection Rivers of Delight
The second piece, 66, is a frolicking, kitsch-filled slice of twentieth-century Americana, paying playful homage to the spirit and colorful history of the infamous highway and the adventures of its travelers. Set as a travelogue of choreographic vignettes, Twyla Tharp completes the retro-mod atmosphere with 1950's bachelor pad music.
The program concludes at full crescendo with the emotionally charged epic Heroes. Drawing inspiration from the legendary album by musical icon David Bowie, a dra?matic, symphonic ballet has been created by Philip Glass. Heroes is an awe-inspiring trib?ute to the romance between music and choreography, spinning together in perpetu?al motion.
Since founding her first com?pany in 1965, Twyla Tharp has had a sweeping influence on modern dance. As a dancer, choreographer, and a director, Ms. Tharp has created one of the most prodigious careers in modern dance choreography.
Among the better known and most influ?ential works are Tank Dive, her first piece of choreography; The Fugue, Eight felly Rolls, to the music of Jelly Roll Morton; The Bix Pieces, to the music of Paul Whiteman's Orchestra and Thelonius Monk; Deuce Coupe, her most famous foray into ballet
with the Joffrey Ballet to music by the Beach Boys; Sue's Leg, created in residence at the Walker Art Center in Minneapolis; Push Comes to Shove, originally created for her company but better known as a vehicle for Mikhail Baryshnikov; Baker's Dozen; Nine Sinatra Songs, to the music of Frank Sinatra; and the amazingly theatrical collaboration with Philip Glass, In the Upper Room. She also took modern dance to Broadway in her 1981 collaboration with David Byrne, The Catherine Wheel, and her 1985 staging of Singin' In The Rain which ran for one year at the Gershwin Theater.
Never content with relying only on the frame of a proscenium theater, Ms. Tharp began work in film and video. She strapped an Ampex video recorder to her back as early as 1970, resulting in the most complete documentation of any body of choreographic work in history. In film, Ms. Tharp has collab?orated with film director Milos Foreman on Hair (1978), Ragtime (1980) and Amadeus (1984), with Taylor Hackford on White Nights, and Jim Brooks on I'll Do Anything (1994).
Her television credits include choreo?graphing Sue's Leg for the inaugural episode of PBS' Dance in America, co-producing and directing Making Television Dance which won the Chicago International Film Festival Award; and directing The Catherine Wheel for BBC Television, which was a Broadway col?laboration with David Byrne. Ms. Tharp co-directed the television special Baryshnikov by Tharp which won two Emmy awards as well as the Director's Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement.
In 1988, Ms. Tharp was invited to become Associate Director of American Ballet Theatre by then Artistic Director Mikhail Baryshnikov. During this two-year experiment, Ms. Tharp returned to the studio to develop new work for ABT, dismantling her own company and enfolding some of her dancers into American Ballet Theatre.
In 1991 Ms. Tharp was then invited to become an artist in residence at the Wexner Center at The Ohio State University. Attracting remarkable dancers on a project by project basis, Ms. Tharp's first year in res?idence resulted in four new works: Men's Piece, Grand Pas: Rhythm of the Saints, Octet, and Sextet, all of which were incorporated into her 1992 New York season at City Center. In the summer of 1992 she pro?duced an evening work with her pick-up company and Mr. Baryshnikov called Cutting Up which went on to become one of modern dance's most successful tours, appearing in twenty-eight cities over two months.
During this period of project work, Ms. Tharp has worked with dancers from the Paris Opera Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, New York City Ballet, and her own company. She has continued to be one of the most prolific choreographers in the world, setting Demeter & Persephone on the Martha Graham Company in the fall of 1993, Waterbaby Bagatelles on the Boston Ballet in the spring of 1994, and New Works on her own compa?ny in the fall of 1994 at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. Just this past spring,
Ms. Tharp renewed her relationship with American Ballet Theatre, premiering three new works: Americans We, How Near Heaven, and Jump Start, featuring a commissioned score performed live by Wynton Marsalis and his orchestra.
Ms. Tharp's autobiography, Push Comes to Shove, was published by Bantam Doubleday Dell Publishing Group in 1992, the same year Ms. Tharp was awarded a fellowship from the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
In Winter 1995-96, prior to beginning work with Tharp!, she created Mr. Worldy Wise, a three-act ballet, for The Royal Ballet in London, and The Elements for American Ballet Theatre.
Philip Glass is one of this nation most prominent composers. A graduate of the University of Chicago at the age of nineteen with dual degrees in mathematics and phi?losophy, he went on to study at The Juilliard School, from which he graduated in 1962, followed by two years of study in Paris with Nadia Boulanger. By 1974 he had composed a large collection of new music written pri?marily for his own performance group, the Philip Glass Ensemble. This period culmi?nated in Music in 12 Parts and the collabora?tion with Robert Wilson, Einstein on the Beach. Glass' output since Einstein has ranged from opera to film scores to symphonic works to string quartets. He has also created a'signifi-cant amount of music for dance, including In the Upper Room for Twyla Tharp, A Descent into the Maelstrom for Molissa Fenley, and compositions for such choreographers as Jerome Robbins, Lucinda Childs, Garth Fagan, Laura Dean, and Lar Lubovitch, among others. Among his recently completed works are The Voyage, commissioned by the Metropolitan Opera, La Belle et La Bete, a chamber opera based on the film by Jean Cocteau; and the 2nd Symphony, commis?sioned by the Brooklyn Philharmonic
Orchestra. Some of his recent works have included two collaborations with Robert Wilson: Monsters ofGrace and White Raven, and Les Enfants Terribles Children of the Game, a new dancetheatre work with choreogra?pher Susan Marshall. Philip Glass was made a Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres by the French government in 1995 and has been awarded honorary degrees from Brandeis University, The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, and the State University of New York in Buffalo.
Jennifer Tipton (Lighting Designer) is well-known for her work in theater, dance, and opera. She has been awarded two Bessies and an Olivier for lighting dance, her work in that field including pieces choreographed by Twyla Tharp, Mikhail Baryshnikov, Jiri Kylian, Jerome Robbins, Paul Taylor, and Dan Wagoner among many others. Her work in the theater has garnered her a Joseph Jefferson Award, a Kudo, a Dramalogue Award, two American Theater Wing Awards, an Obie, two Drama Desk Awards, and two Tonys. Her designs for opera include Robert Wilson's production of Parsifal at the Houston Grand Opera and Peter Sellars' production of TannhduserTor the Chicago Lyric Opera. In the fall of 1991 she directed a production of The Tempest at the Guthrie Theater. She has been an artis?tic associate with the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge and the Goodman Theater in Chicago. In 1982 she received the Creative Arts Award medal in Dance from Brandeis University, and she held a Guggenheim Fellowship for the 1986-87 sea?son. She received the Commonwealth Award in Dramatic Arts in 1989, and was honored with the 1991 Dance Magazine Award. She has been a recipient of the National Endowment for the Arts Theater Program Distinguished Artist Award and a grant for work with the Wooster Group in the National Theatre Artist Residency Program
funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts. Ms. Tipton also teaches lighting at the Yale School of Drama.
Norma Kamali (Costume Designer) is one of the most successful and well-respected fashion designers in the world. She cata-paulted to fame with her first clothing to be featured on the cover of a magazine -Cosmopolitan, featuring Christie Brinkley in a Kamali swimsuit -which coincided with the launching of her successful swimwear line. Throughout her career, she has established collections globally of women's wear, swimwear, eyewear, fragrance, a home collec?tion of furniture, fabrics, and home fragrance, as well as a cosmetics line, Norma Kamali Beauty, among others. She has designed costumes for Twyla Tharp's In the Upper Room and for the Emerald City in Sydney Lumet's film The Wiz. Her "parachute" designs have been included in the Diana VreelandVanity Fair exhibit and have remained a part of the permanent fashion collection at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Among her numerous awards are three Coty Awards, the "American Success Award" for vocational technical education (at the Fashion Institute of Technology) presented by President George Bush in the Rose Garden of the White House, the Distinguished Architecture Award from the New York Chapter of the AIA (for the OMO Kamali headquarters in NYC). This year she pre?sented her 1996 Collection as an exibition for the internet, and launched the OMO Norma Kamali Web Page.
Kasia Malicka Maimone (Costume Designer) was awarded an Arts MA in 1988 at Warsaw University. She then specialized in costume and fashion design. Since coming to New York six years ago, she has worked on a vari?ety of theatrical and film projects and con?tinues her fashion line. Among others she designed Donald ByrdThe Group's Bristle

Shelley Washington Whitman (Ballet Mistress) studied with Twyla Tharp at Wolf Trap Academy, American University in 1973 prior to being invited to join the Twyla Tharp Dance Company in 1975. A graduate of Interlochen Arts Academy, Ms. Washington furthered her training at The Juilliard School before joining the Martha Graham Dance Company in 1974. In 1985 she per?formed in Singin' in the Rain on Broadway and served as Dance Captain for that pro?duction. In 1987 she was honored with a Bessie Award for Outstanding Performer of the Year.

Thirteenth Concert of the 118th Season
Divine Expressions Series
Special thanks to Mr. Tom Conlin for his continued support through Conlin Travel.
Large print programs are available upon request.
This program is divided in three periods: early Renaissance, late Rennaisance and music from this century. The soalled "Low Countries" was, in fact, a much larger area than the region that now covers Holland and Belgium. It also covered a large part of France and a small part of Germany. The "franco-flemish" school is not from a geographical or political origin, but was called this because of the unity of style, performed in the above mentioned area.
The early Renaissance section starts with an Alleluia in unison Gregorian Chant, sung by the two men of the ensemble. The Alleluia is followed by a text from the Lamentations ofjermiah 1:12.
O vos omnes, qui transitis per viam, attendile et videte si est dolor sicut dolor meus
All of you, who pass by on your way, stop and see if you have seen any sorrow like my sorrow
This text from the Old Testament is very often used in Passiontide or in times of oppression. After this O vos omnes we sing the first lesson of a three-part setting by Alexander Agricola, a gifted pupil of
Josquin. The male voices get company now from the alto. In the motet O vos omnes, the soprano joins in for the first four-part piece. After the second lesson of the lamentations and Spem in alium, the second piece by Jachet of Mantua, we go back to the dark sound of the third lesson of the lamenta?tions, sung by the lower voices. We end this section with again, the Gregorian Alleluia, this time without O vos omnes.
The second period is represented by Jan Pieterszoon Sweelinck, probably the most important -or at least most influential -Dutch composer in musical history. These five Psalms were composed for chamber music concert purposes, not for church ser?vices. They were written in the flamboyant virtuoso style that was typical for the Low Countries.
After intermission, again a Psalm, but this time from this century, as are all the pieces in this section. The music has its ori?gin in the early polyphonic music of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. After the short mass by Ton de Leeuw, the most important Dutch composer of our time, we perform a piece by Daan Manneke, Due Canti, especially written for Quink. The first of these Canti has two texts, sung at the same time, a typical stylistic form used in the Middle Ages. The second Canto is a very exciting setting of a text from the Song of Solomon.
Program note by Harry van Berne
O vos omnes, qui transitis per viam,
attendite, et videte
si est dolor sicut dolor meus.
All of you, who pass by on your way,
stop and see
if you have seen any sorrow like mine.
Lamentationes Ieremice Prophetce Lectio Prima
Quomodo sedet sola civitas plena populo:
facta est vidua domina gentium:
princeps provinciarum
facta est tribute
Plorans ploravit in nocte
et lacrimae ejus in maxillis ejus:
non est qui consoletur earn
ex omnibus caris ejus:
omnes amici ejus spreverunt earn
et facti sunt ei inimici.
Migravit Judas propter afflictionem
et multitudinem servitutis:
habitavit inter gentes
nee invenit requiem:
omnes persecutores ejus apprehenderunt
earn inter angustias.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum
O vos omnes, qui transitis per viam
attendite, et videte,
si est dolor similis dolori meo.
Lamentationes Ieremice Prophetce Lectio Secunda
Viae Sion lugent
eo quod non sint qui veniant ad solemnitatem:
omnes portae ejus destructse:
sacerdotes ejus gementes: virgines ejus
squalidae, et ipsa oppressa est amaritudine.
First Lesson
How lonely sits the city that was full of people: how like a widow has she become: she that was a princess among the cities has become a vassal. Beth
She weeps bitterly in the night, tears on her cheeks: among all her lovers she has none to comfort her: all her friends have dealt treacherously with her, and they have become her enemies. Ghimel
Judah has gone into exile because of affliction and hard servitude: she dwells now among the nations but finds no resting place: her pursuers have all overtaken her in the midst of her distress. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, convert to your Lord God
All of you, who pass by on your way,
stop and see
if you have seen any sorrow like mine.
Second Lesson
The roads to Zion mourn
for none come to the appointed feasts:
all her gates are desolate: her priests groan:
her maidens have been dragged away,
and she herself suffers bitterly.
Facti sunt hostes ejust in capite, inimici illius locupletati sunt: quia Dominus locutus est super earn propter multitudunem inquitatum ejus: parvuli ejus ducti sunt in captivitatem, ante faciem tribulantis. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum
Spem in Alium
Spem in alium nunquam habui
praeter in te, Deus Israel,
qui irasceris et propitius eri
et omnia peccata hominum
in tribulatione dimittis.
Domine Deus, Creator caeli et terras,
respice ad humilitatem nostram.
Lamentationes Ieremice Prophetce Lectio Tertia
Et egressus est a filia Sion omnis decor ejus: facti sunt principes ejus velut arietes non invenientes pascua: et abierunt absque fortitudine ante faciem subsequentis. Zain
Recordata est Jerusalem dierum afflictionis suae et praevaricationis, omnium desiderabilium suorum, quae habuerat a diebus antiquis, cum caderat populus ejus in manu hostili, et non esset auxiliator: viderunt earn hostes, et deriserunt sabata ejus. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, convertere ad Dominum Deum tuum
Her foes have become the head,
her enemies prosper,
because the Lord has made her suffer
for the multitude of her transgressions;
her children have gone away,
captives before the foe.
Jerusalem, Jerusalem,
convert to your Lord God
I have never put my hope in any other
but in you, God of Israel,
who will be angry and yet become again gracious
and who forgives all the sins
of suffering man.
Lord God, Creator of Heaven and Earth,
look upon our lowliness.
Third Lesson
From the daughter of Zion has departed all her majesty; her princes have become like harts that find no pasture; they fled without strength before the pursuer. lain
Jerusalem remembers in the days of her affliction and bitterness,
all the precious things that were hers from days of old.
When her people fell into the hand of the foe, and there was none to help her, the foe gloated over her, mocking at her downfall. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, convert to your Lord God
Psalm 47
Or sus tous humains,
Frappez en vos mains:
Qu'on oye sonner, Qu'on oye etonner,
Le Norn solennel de Dieu Eternel.
C'est le Dieu tres-haut
Que craindre il nous faut,
Le grand Roi qui fait sentir en effet
Sa force au travers de tout l'univers.
All ye people,
clap your hands:
cheer and praise
the holy name of the eternal God.
Because the exalted Lord
we must fear,
The great king, whose power
is felt in all the world.
Psalm 114
Quand Israel hors d'Egypte sortit Et la maison de Jacob se partit D'entre le peuple etrange, Juda fut fait la grand' gloire de Dieu, Et Dieu se fit Prince du peuple Hebreu, Prince de grand' louange.
When Israel left Egypt
And the house of Jacob marched from
a foreign nation Juda became the glory of the Loi
And God made himself Prince of the Hebrew peop
Prince of the great Praise.
Psalm 78
Sois ententif, mon peuple a ma doctrine, Soit ton oreille entierement encline A bien ouir tous let mots de ma bouche: Car maintenant il faudra que je touche Graves propos, et par moi soient dis Les grands secrets des ...uvres de jadis.
Be obedient, my people, to my doctrine, incline all your ear, to hear well All the words from my mouth: Because now I will broach serious matters and divulge great secrets of olden times.
Psalm 137
Estans assis aux rives aquatiques
De Babylon, plorions melancoliques,
Nous souvenons du pals de Sion:
Et au milieu de l'habitation,
Ou de regret tant de pleurs epandimes,
Aux saules verds nos harpes nous pendimes.
By the rivers of Babylon we sat
and wept melancholy.
We remembered the land of Sion:
And in the midst of the abode
Where we shed many tears of sorrow,
In the green willows we hang our harps.
Psalm 138
II faut que de tous mes esprits, Ton los et prixj'exalte et prise: Devant les grands me presenter Pour te chanter J'ai fait emprise. En ton saint Temple adorerai, Celebrerai Ta renommee, Pour l'amour de ta grand' bonte Et feaute Tant estimee.
I will praise thee with heart and soul,
in the presence of gods
I will sing thee psalms
I will bow
to Your holy temple
and praise Your Name
for Your loving-kindness
and Your utmost prized fidelity.
Psalm 121
Je leve mes yeux sur les montagnes.
D'ou me viendra le secours
Le secours me vient de l'Eternel
Qui a fait les cieux et la terre
l'Eternel te gardera de tout mal
II gardera ton ame
l'Eternel gardera ton depart et ton arrivee,
des maintenants et a jamais.
Que la gloire soit au Pee au Fils au
Saint Esprit
comme elle etait a l'origine
maintenant et toujours
et pour les siecles des siecles.
I will lift up mine eyes to the hills.
From whence will come my help
My help will come from the Lord
Who has created heaven and earth.
The Lord will protect you from all evil.
He will protect your soul.
The Lord will protect your going out and
your coming in, now and forever.
Glory be to the Father, the Son and the
Holy Ghost
As it was in the beginning,
is now and ever shall be
from eternity to eternity.

Ecclesiastes 1:6
After a successful debut in the 1978 Holland Festival, Quink quickly emerged as a unique professional ensemble. This remarkable group of five young
singers has developed a special style and established a reputation for captivating its audiences with expressive programs of varied repertoire.
The five singers, who are also active as soloists, find themselves at home in many areas of the a cappella repertoire, performing music from different periods in authentic style. Their repertoire consists of madrigals from the Renaissance and Baroque, Lieder from the late German Romantic period,
chansons from the Impressionist period of France, and contemporary twentieth-century music. The ensemble actively seeks out new works and commissions to add to the repertoire and often closes programs with a selection of lighter arrangements in close harmony.
As a finalist in the national competition in The Netherlands, Quink was invited to concertize in England with the Kings' Singers, the Hilliard Ensemble, and the Deller Consort. The ensemble is often heard on radio and has appeared on various Dutch and German television shows. The group is regularly invited to international music festi?vals such as the Holland Festival, the Stour Festival in England, and the Hitzacker and Landshut Festivals in Germany. In August 1992, Quink performed at the Europaische
Kirchenmusik in Schwabisch Gmund, near Stuttgart, and made its Italian debut in the spring of 1987 in a national tour.
Quink has recorded on the Etcetera and CBS labels, and released a compact disc of songs by Ralph Vaughn-Williams and Gerald Finzi on the Fidelio label. The New York Times praised Quink's collection of Benjamin Britten works, saying it "reveals a purity of tone reminiscent of Renaissance madrigals." Of their rendition of William Byrd's Mass for Four Voices, Gramophone magazine said, 'Their performance is astonishingly live because they have a superb range of vocal color -varying their tonal tension, their vibrato, their articulation, and so on -and avoid any temptation to exaggerate Byrd's often playful rhythms." Quink's most recent compact discs, on Telarc International, include collections of Italian Renaissance and English madrigals, an offering of Christmas carols, and a CD of international folk songs. Future plans include a recording of French madrigals.
Quink's first US tour in 1985 was so artis?tically successful that the group now returns here twice each season. Tours have included residencies at Dartmouth and the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and concerts throughout New England. Quink was invited as special guest at the Iowa Choral Directors' Convention and gave its New York debut at Merkin Hall in 1988. In February 1991, the ensemble performed at The Cloisters in New York; during the 1991-92 season, Quink toured the Northeast, including a perfor?mance in Canada. The 1992-93 tours saw recitals across the US and a return visit to The Cloisters. In 1993-94 they performed in the South on a fall tour and in the Midwest and Upper Midwest in the spring. Quink returned during 1994-95 for performances across the US, including the Midwest, Southern states, and Alaska.
Tonight's performance marks Quink's debut under UMS auspices.
Machteld van Woerden, soprano, completed studies as a theologist before beginning her vocal training at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam. She studied with Professor Erna Spoorenberg, and graduated with a solo degree in 1984. Machteld is a founding member of Quink and has made many foreign tours with the ensemble. She is a member of the Dutch Radio Choir and, as a soloist, has performed with such conductors as Henry Lewis, Edo de Waart, Mauricio Kagel, Reinbert de Leeuw and Kennedi Montgomery. An experienced Lieder recitalist, she performs regularly in concerts and oratorios. She has participated in masterclasses with Alfred Deller and Udo Reinemann, and at present is coached by Margreet Honig in Amsterdam.
Marjolein Koetsier, soprano, undertook her studies in Groningen and finished in Amsterdam with Professor Cora Canne Meyer at the Sweelinck Conservatory. She received her opera training in Amsterdam as well, and performed in several opera and
musical productions. A regular member of the Dutch Radio Choir, Marjolein has per?formed as a soloist with conductors such as Henry Lewis, Gaeano Delogu, Zoltan Pesko, and Frans Bruggen. A member of Quink since 1989, she is also an active recitalist and soloist in concerts, opera, and oratorio per?formances. During masterclasses, she stud?ied with Robert Holl, Gerard Souzay, and Tom Krause; her current coaches are Margreet Honig in Amsterdam and the bari?tone William Murray, who is now a voice instructor at the University of Houston.
Corrie Pronk, alto, studied at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam with Professor Erna Spoorenberg, graduating in 1985 with her solo degree. She often appears on radio and television and is a successful soloist both in The Netherlands and abroad. In Holland, she has concertized with the Radio Chamber Orchestra, the Limburg Symphony Orchestra, and the Orchestra of Brabant with such conductors as Hans Vbnk and Ed Spanjaard. Several of her perfor?mances have been recorded for compact disc production. In addition to Quink, Corrie is a member of the Radio Choir of the national broadcasting company; she per?forms on a freelance basis with the Netherlands Chamber Choir, La Chapelle Royale in France, and the Collegium Vocale in Belgium. Corrie was a finalist in the 1990 Elly Ameling Competition, and as a result was offered several solo recitals, including a recital in the famous Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.
Harry van Berne, tenor, studied as a cellist and a singer with Professor Erna Spoorenberg at Amsterdam's Sweelinck Conservatory and graduated in 1985. He is much in demand as a soloist in operas, con?certs, and oratorio performances and has been invited to perform in Western Europe, the United States, the Middle East, and
Japan. Harry gives frequent recitals accom?panied by piano, lute, or guitar, and is also active as an ensemble singer. From 1985 until 1990, he was a regular member of the Netherlands Chamber Choir and presently performs with this group on a freelance basis. In addition to Quink, Harry is also a member of the Gesualdo Consort Amsterdam and the Huelgas Ensemble from Belgium. His vast repertoire stretches from the Middle Ages, Early Renaissance, and Baroque through the Classic and Romantic era and includes music from this century, some of which was specially written for and dedicated to him. He has worked with many well-known conductors and orchestras, including Rene Jacobs, Ton Koopman, Michael Schneider, The Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra, and La Stagione Frankfurt. As a soloist and member of the above ensembles, Harry has made numer?ous recordings. His present coaches are Margreet Honig in Amsterdam and Anthony Rolfe Johnson in London.
Kees-Jan de Koning, bass, studied the recorder in Utrecht before entering the Royal Conservatory in The Hague as a singer. He began his studies with Peter Kooy, finishing with Herman Woltman. Since 1992, he has been a regular part-time mem?ber of the Netherlands Chamber Choir. In addition to his work with Quink, he is con?nected with several important European ensembles, including Ensemble Vocal Europeenne (France), Camerata Trajectina (Netherlands), Huelgas Ensemble (Belgium), and Concerto Palatino (Italy). A sought-after soloist for opera and oratorio performances, he has performed with Ton Koopman, Frans Bruggen, Michael Schneider, Philippe Herreweghe, and Gustav Leonhardt. As a soloist and ensemble member, he has made several compact disc recordings; since 1992, he has taught voice at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague.

Gustav Mahler
Born November 4, 1860 in Kalischt, Bohemia
Died May 18, 1911 in Vienna
In speaking of Mahler's symphonies, allusion often is made to three symphonic trilogies. The first trilogy, consisting of sym?phonies Nos. 1, 2 and 3, is expressive of the composer's high metaphysical aspirations. These works were followed, almost as an afterthought, by the highly idyllic Symphony No. 4 in which we get a view of heaven from a child's perspective. The Fourth Symphony, along with Nos. 2 and 3, can be said to be part of a different trilogy the "Wunderhorn" Symphonies employing thematic material and even incorporating complete songs from the composer's own song cycle Des Knaben Wunderhorn as one of their movements, just as No. 1 is diematically derived from Mahler's Lieder eines fahrenden GeseUen (Songs of a Wayfarer). The next trilogy comprises the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Symphonies-all three being purely orchestral in their conception; these are works expressing humanistic realism, often tinged widi pes?simism, with an "Artist as Hero" coping with life's tribulations clearly at the center of die proceedings. Not belonging to a trilogy, the Eighdi Symphony is something of a rare work in that within it Mahler continues his stylistic development as a symphonist while reverting to the use of vocal forces as in his early symphonies; a spiritually-affirming work, it consists of only two large movements, employing as texts the religious medieval poem Veni, Creator spiritus and the closing scene of Goethe's Faust, respectively. Throughout this work, massive choruses and an octet of soloists are employed, supported by a gigantic orchestra, and earning for itself the appellative of "Symphony of a Thousand."
Mahler's last symphonic trilogy, often referred to as the "Farewell" trilogy, is made
up of Das Lied von der Erde (The Song of the Earth), Symphony No. 9 and the incompleted, but full-length draft of the five-movement Symphony No. 10; this trilogy is marked by its concern over death. Written between 1908 and 1909, the six-movement Das Lied von der Erde evokes the shadow of death through seven Chinese poems translated into German by Hans Bethge in a collection called Die chinesische Flote. After die massive forces of the Eighth Symphony, Das Lied was conceived in the opposite direction, as transparent orchestrations and a markedly intimate mood make it perhaps Mahler's most personal work. If Das Lied speaks of death in poetic terms, the Ninth Symphony is fully expressive of die despair felt upon die confrontation with death. The Tenth Symphony also clearly depicts die terrified "Hero" bitterly facing and preparing for deadi; at the end, however, there is a calm acceptance of death's final inevitability. It is not at all incomprehensible that Mahler should have been so preoccupied widi death in his creative efforts at the time. In 1907 his eldest daughter died from scarlet fever at the age of five; that same year, the doctors discovered diat Mahler suffered from a serious heart condition which even?tually led to his demise four years later. As oncoming deadi became an obsession, Mahler was nonedieless determined to fully express his feelings on the matter through his music, for which he needed to complete one last trilogy in the process. Knowing diat Beethoven, Schubert and Bruckner had died shordy after completing their respective Ninth Symphonies, Mahler felt a great deal of trepidation in writing a Ninth Symphony himself. (It is interesting to note that Antonin Dvorak and, later in this century, Ralph Vaughan Williams, also died with only nine symphonies to dieir name.) Superstitious sentiments got the upper hand, and Mahler tried to confuse die issue widi death by following his Eighth
Symphony with the un-numbered Das Lied von derErde, giving it its title and describing his creation simply as a "Symphony for Contralto (or Baritone), Tenor and Orchestra." After this work was completed he then went on to finish the symphony he called his Ninth. Death, however, was not to be deceived; just as his song cycle Kinderlotenlieder (Songs on the Death of Children) presaged the demise of his daughter three years after its composition, so did the Ninth Symphony foretell of the composer's parting from the world. Mahler died in 1911, unable to finish his Tenth Symphony, which would have rounded out his trilogy of death-haunted works, and with?out ever having the pleasure of hearing a performance of any of its components. (It should be noted that Mahler did manage to complete the Adagio movement, and was able to sufficiently sketch out the remaining movements, making it possible for English musicologist Deryck Cooke to complete a performing version of the work; this effort was fully endorsed and approved by Alma Mahler, the composer's widow.)
Having originated from a long tradition with its roots in Beethoven, evolving through Brahms and Bruckner, with the marked influences of Wagner and Strauss, Mahler's symphonies mark the culmination of the form within the Austro-Germanic Romantic school of composition. Mahler's Ninth Symphony, in addition to being his last com?plete work, in a sense can also be said to be the last symphony of its time and stylistic approach. Mahler's procedures of composi?tion paved the way for the Second Viennese School; by the time of the Ninth Symphony, not only was tonality subjected to frequent break-downs, but the composer relied heavily on motivic elaboration by means of variation, symmetrical reflection, contrast, permutation, interlacing and correlation -all principles that would become part of the technical apparatus of Schoenberg, Berg, Webern and
their followers, within their twelve-tone compositional methods. In this symphony the main motif becomes the interval of descending seconds (sometimes in the major, more often in the minor) associated with the idea of a melancholic farewell; this interval is present in all the thematic material throughout the work.
Evoking the composer's thoughts on the evanescence of earthly life, the Ninth Symphony is filled with inexorable sadness and weariness, and expresses the dramatic inner turmoil and conflicts of an artist rest?lessly searching for peace and tranquillity; agonized despair, a thirst and deep love for life and, ultimately, resignation are all imprinted in the work's psychological portrait Deryck Cooke described this emotionally charged work in the following words: "The Ninth Symphony marks Mahler's further?most descent into the hell of emptiness that confronted him when he received the death-sentence from his doctor and found his hard-sought faith too insecure to exorcise the spectre of a swiftly approaching prema?ture extinction--This work is in truth, Mahler's dark night of the soul, and it is all the more moving in that there is no easy yielding to despair; through all die horror and hopelessness shine's Mahler's unquenchable belief in life."
The first movement is based on a modi?fied sonata form and is marked "Andante comodo." After a five measure introduction which exhibits a sense of somber foreboding and mystery, the second violins introduce the main theme, one which is loosely based on Johann Strauss, Jr. 's waltz Freut euch des Lebens (Enjoy Life); through melodic alter?ation, the theme acquires a bittersweet tone, removed from Strauss' original conception, emphasizing Mahler's thirst for life. Later on a more passionate and intense theme is presented in an expression of agony, stressed by piercing brass chords. Through constant variation, the two themes are devel-
oped, often intertwined with themselves and with a number of other small motivic cells. Most prominent among these motifs, is a falling cadential figure which recalls the closing words of Das lied von der Erde, "Exuig, eurig" (Forever, forever); this motif, actually derived from Beethoven's "Farewell" Piano Sonata, is employed usually at the end of phrases, but often enough at the start of a phrase, as if to say that the end is certain from the very beginning.
The second movement, marked "Im Tempo eines Gemachlichen Landlers," comes in the form of a scherzo, based at first on the Austrian peasant dance, the handler. Mahler's "dance" music, however, acquires a suggestion of mockery, as if scorning earthly pleasures. The march rhythms that perme?ate the early symphonies are vastly in evi?dence here, and a tragic overtone sounds through the feigned and empty happiness. The seeming cheerfulness of the opening ascending motif is constantly negated by the ever present descending-second motif associ?ated with leave-taking. The handler suddenly gives way to a Waltz section with macabre undertones. From here on the Ldndler and the Waltz are alternated several times, in each case, one borrowing motivic material from the other, as the themes undergo con?stant variation, often modifying the unifying descending-second motif by augmentation to a ninth interval.
The next movement, a Rondo-Burleske bearing the tempo marking of "Allegro assai," is a tour deforce of polyphonic writing. In addition to being built upon a rondo structure, this movement once again may be characterized as another diabolic Scherzo; here the composer seems to take a backward glance at a life full of activity with a sense of mockery and irony. In agitato fashion, numerous motivic components are thrust precipitatedly against each other in the main recurring section. This is followed by a quieter episode which is thematically related
to the opening of the movement. Variants of these two sections are heard before a clash of cymbals and long fortissimo brass chords usher in a more sedate, but no less passionate, intermezzo, which is nonetheless subjected now and then to noisy reminders of what has preceded. An extended return to the agitated main section, which keeps building in momentum and speed, brings the movement to a shattering conclusion.
The last movement is one of Mahler's most sublimely beautiful, an "Adagio" in which a single, slowly-unfolding theme is carried through twelve long-drawn varia?tions. The mood now wavers between anguish, provoked by a deep love of life, and resignation on the face of death. In the end, in the last pianississimo statement of the theme by strings alone, acceptance of the inevitable fate of all earthly creatures pre?dominates; quoting the German musicolo?gist Paul Becker, "The melody is placid, yet wrought with the highest intensity of feeling. It is no song of mourning, but a noble affir?mation, the unfolding of of a final vision."
Mahler's Ninth Symphony received its world premiere performance posthumously in Vienna when Bruno Walter, the composer's protege and champion of his music, conducted the Vienna Philharmonic on June 26, 1912.
Program note by Edgar Colon-Hernandez
""B he internationally ? acclaimed State Symphony of Russia (for?merly called the Moscow State Symphony) returns in 1996 for its ninth H_ North American tour. The orchestra, led by Yevgeny Svedanov and comprised of Russia's top symphonic instru?mentalists, has made an invaluable contribu?tion to the art of symphonic music in Russia. The State Symphony of Russia has per-
formed in the world's most prestigious venues, including the Musikverein (Vienna), Royal Albert Hall (London), Salle Pleyel (Paris), Kennedy Center (Washington DC), Lincoln Center (New York), and Carnegie Hall (New York).
The orchestra' first performance took place in the Grand Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on October of 1936 and its first tour within Russia took place a few month later. Throughout its history, the State Symphony of Russia has collaborated with many of the world's greatest conductors and soloists. The orchestra itself has had four renowned Music Directors: Alexander Guak, Nathan Rachlin, Konstantin Ivanov, and Yevgeny Svetlanov. Maestro Svetlanov, one of Russia's most versatile and respected musical figures who has largely been respon?sible for the orchestra's ascension into the ranks of the world's finest symphony orches?tras, has served as the orchestra's Music Director and Chief Conductor since 1965.
Russian music has always been an inte?gral part of the orchestra's repertoire. The works of many of the great Russian com?posers, including Tchaikovsky, Prokofiev, Khachaturian, Kabalevsky, Shostakovich, Gliere and Ashrafi, were performed with the orchestra under the batons of their com?posers. Shostakovich, Khrennikov, Babadjanyan, and Shchedrin performed their own concertos at the piano with the State Symphony. Yevgeny Svetlanov first appeared with the orchestra as a guest artist, conducting his own composition, Siberian Fantasy.
The State Symphony gives more than 100 concerts a year, about ten of which are annual subscription concerts of the Moscow Philhar?monic Society, held in Tchaikovsky Hall, the most prestigious hall in Moscow. The larger part of the concert season, however, is spent by the orchestra on foreign tours.
The State Symphony embarked in its first foreign tour in 1957, becoming the first
Soviet symphonic ensemble to be heard abroad. The orchestra made its first North American tour in 1960, including perfor?mances in Washington DC, Chicago, Cleveland, Baltimore, and Philadelphia, concluding with a spectacular concert before an audience of 16,000 in New York's Madison Square Garden. More recently, the orchestra completed a critically acclaimed twenty-four-concert tour of North America in 1991, which included performance in Miami, Tampa, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, New York at Avery Fisher Hall and Washington DC at the Kennedy Center. In 1992, the State Symphony of Russia toured France, Japan, Germany, Austria, South Korea, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg. The orches?tra has also toured Poland, Romania, the People's Republic of China, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, former Yugoslavia, Belgium, Greece, Spain, France, Great Britain, Australia, New Zealand and South America. The orchestra returned to the United States in 1994 for an outstanding month-long tour which included performances throughout Florida along with return engagements in San Francisco, Chicago, and two perfor?mances in New York's Avery Fischer Hall. This fall the orchestra makes its ninth tour of the United States. The State Symphony is a frequent participant of leading music festivals all over the world such as the Edinburgh Festival, the Athens Music Festival, and Florentine May Festival. The orchestra's concerts have been attended by members of royal families, heads of state, and government leaders of different countries.
For their recordings on die Melodia label, the orchestra has received such coveted honors as a Grad Prix du Disque and an Edison Prize. In 1989, Yevgeny Svetlanov and the orchestra concluded a creative endeavor unique in its historical and cultural value. In the course of almost twenty-five years, they recorded an Anthology of Russian Music.
For this project, all symphonic pieces by all Russian composers have been recorded on more than 100 compact discs.
Tonight's performance marks the sixth appearance of the State Symphony of Russia (formerly the Moscow Slate Symphony) under UMS auspices. Their debut performance was made under Maxim Shostakovich's direction in 1969.
Y evgeny Svetlanov, one of Russia's most versatile and respected musical figures, is known to music lovers throughout the world for his formidable talents as a conductor, composer, and pianist. In 1954, Svetlanov made his first appearance with the State Symphony, con?ducting a performance of his own work, Siberian Fantasy. That same year, he won a coveted position as Conductor of the Bolshoi Theatre. He spent ten years at the Bolshoi, serving as its Chief Conductor from 1963 until 1965. In 1965, he became the Musical Director and Principal Conductor of the State Symphony of Russia (then called the Moscow State Symphony). Under his leadership, it has joined the ranks of the world's most respected symphony orchestras.
In addition to his extensive performing and recording schedule with the State Symphony of Russia, Svetlanov appears fre?quently as guest conductor with the world's leading orchestras, including the London Symphony Orchestra, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and orchestras in Poland, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Korea, Austria, Belgium, Holland, Spain, Norway, Germany, France, Italy, Finland, and Sweden.
One of Svetlanov's goals, since the time of his early musical training, has been to preserve and enhance the tradition of Russian symphonic music. Part of his real-
ization of this goal has been the ongoing project of recording the Anthology of Russian Music at the Melodia Studios. By 1986, he had recorded all the symphonic works by Glinka, Balakirev, Dargomyzhsky, Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, Liadov, Liapunov, Tchaikovsky, Arensky, Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, and die project continues. Svedanov has also recorded some of his own works; a gifted composer, he has written large-scale symphonic works, instrumental chamber music and vocal pieces, as well as works for piano, violin, cello, clarinet and viola.
The son of members of the Bolshoi Theatre company, Yevgeny Svetlanov sang in the chorus as a boy. He studied the piano and composition at the Gnessin Music College and, subsequently, at the Gnessin Musical-Pedagogic Institute; upon graduation,
Svetlanov entered the Moscow Conservatory for further studies in conducting and com?position.
A respected scholar, Svedanov has written numerous newspaper and magazine articles on the subject of music. His life and work have been the subject of a film Dirizhor (The Conductor).
Yevgeny Svetlanov has appeared four limes under UMS auspices, first conducting the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra in 1965. Tonight's performance marks his fifth appearance.
