Season: 1996-1997 Fall
University Of Michigan, Ann Arbor

University
THE
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 with Jessye 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 diis 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.
Sincerely,
Kenneth C. Fischer Executive Director

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 greatly 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, Orffs Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et CAfoeand Prokofiev's Aleksandr 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.
Auditoria
HILL AUDITORIUM
Standing tall and proud in the heart of the 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 the softest high notes of vocal recitalists to the grandeur of the finest orchestras, Hill Auditorium is known and loved throughout the world.
Hill Auditorium is named for former U-M regent Arthur Hill, who bequested $200,000 to the University for the construction of an audito?rium for lectures, concerts and other university events. Then-UMS President Charles Sink raised an additional $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing the ever-popular Fifth Symphony of Beethoven. The following evening featured Verdi's "Manzoni" Requiem, a work that has been performed frequently throughout the Musical Society's illustrious history. Among the many artists 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 recendy, Yo-Yo Ma, Cecilia Bartoli, Jessye Norman, Van Cliburn, die Metropolitan Opera Orchestra (in the debut concert of its inaugural tour) and die late Sergiu Celibidache conducting die 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 die 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.
RACKHAM AUDITORIUM
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.
POWER CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS
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 die 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 MICHIGAN THEATER
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 film 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).
ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI CATHOLIC CHURCH
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 cappella 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 Akademia (March 15) and the Huelgas Ensemble (April 10).
LYDIA MENDELSSOHN THEATRE
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 major 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 presentatior 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).
BURTON MEMORIAL TOWER
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 $70,000 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.

Yuragi: In a Space of Perpetual Motion
When we fall asleep, something rises. When we rise, something begins to settle.
A reverie perhaps.
Body horizontal, organs floating,
Outstretched, flat upon the surface, relaxing.
A state which enhances contact with the surface.
The body succumbs to gravity. Tranquillity.
Body vertical, organs suspended,
Erect, maintained by force.
A state which reduces contact with the surface.
Only the soles of the feet continue their dialogue with the surface.
The body resists gravity. Action.
To and fro between these two positions, Down and up, up and down.
While falling asleep, something rises. While rising, something begins to settle.
-Ushio A
magatsu
Sankai Juku and its artistic director, Ushio Amagatsu are part of the second generation of Butoh dancers in Japan. Butoh is a new Japanese art form that evolved during the 1960's as an expression of humanitarian awareness by that country's post-war generation. Led by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, who are world famous practitioners of Butoh, Japanese dancers rejected the traditional forms of Eastern and Western dance. They investigat?ed a method of expression which would be appropriate to a new Japan and could reflect the body and feeling of their genera?tion.
"Butoh can only be made with that which can be taken from the manner of living of a race," said Butoh master Hijikata. The ges?tures seen in Butoh emanate from a sensibil?ity that has been restrained by centuries of tradition. The body of the Butoh dancer is unencumbered by the ancient vocabulary of Kabuki or Noh.
For Ushio Amagatsu, Butoh expresses the language of the body rather than a theo?retical meaning of movement. Therefore each individual brings his own physical his?tory and method of expression to the art form. Before he worked in the Butoh style, Amagatsu trained in classical as well as mod?ern dance. In 1975 he started a series of workshops. From those sessions he devel?oped the idea of Sankai Juku and selected three dancers from the workshop to help create the company. The name Sankai Juku can be translated to mean "studio of moun?tain and sea."
The company's first full scale produc?tion, Homage to Ancient Dolls (1977) led to the creation of Kinkan Shonen which was pre?sented in Tokyo in 1978. This production revealed Amagatsu's own vision which has enhanced the understanding of Butoh. His
work is a great departure from the masking of emotion and is premised on a personal expression of suffering. The contrast with the universally accepted Japanese perfor?mance traditions underscores Sankai Juku's passionate appreciation for the joy of life and the sadness of death. The white immo?bile face traditionally represents a thwarted human being, but the whitened face of the Butoh dancer is mobile and is in touch with innocence, wonder, fear and mortality.
In 1980 Sankai Juku was invited to per?form in the West for the first time. They went to the Nancy Festival in France with the firm conviction that Butoh -a univer?sal cry from the origins of humanity -would be accepted. However, they did not go to expose the Japanese culture to the Europeans, rather, to experience other cul?tural climates which would give their work new resonance.
For the next four years, the company remained in Europe where they performed constantly. In 1984 they were invited to come to North America where they made
their debut at the Toronto International Festival and the L.A. Olympic Arts Festival. Subsequently, they have been embraced warmly by audiences throughout Canada and the United States. Their second North American tour was curtailed when Yoshiyuki Takada died during a performance in Washington on September 10, 1985. The company canceled the remaining engage?ments and returned home, some to Japan, others to Paris.
In the spring of 1986 Sankai Juku started a new sixteen city tour of North America which began in Seatde. The company has been seen in such cities as Boston, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Minneapolis, Ann Arbor, Washington D.C., and New York City. Sankai Juku has continued to be a much sought after performance group, touring America numerous times.
These performances mark Sankai Juku's debut under UMS auspices. Sankai Juku first appeared in Ann Arbor at the Michigan Theater in October 1987 and March 1988.
Ushio Amagat.su has immersed himself in the roots of the rituals and character of tra?ditional Japan, from which his interest has reached a more universal point of view while Sankai Juku continues its foreign activities. His work has evolved to a point where his imagery predates classical structures and forms. The power and inner beauty identi?fied with Sankai Juku is traced to man's inner life -a spiritual being who stems from all elements surrounding humanity.
In the summer of 1988, Ushio Amagatsu created his first work for Western dancers at Jacob's Pillow in Lee, Massachusetts which is titled Fushi. His most recent works include Omote, Yuragi, and Fifih-V, which uses a dance floor made of 144 20" TV monitors.

awwali (from Arabic, m k meaning utterance)
m A is tindevotional
I music (sama) of the H m Sufis, the mystics of
J [slam -The divine
message which stirs
a the heart to seek
0 God." For both performer and listener, Qawwali is a method of worship, a means of intensifying love of God, of inducing a mystical ecstasy connect?ing directly to the Beloved which is the core of the Sufi experience. What is most essential to Sufism cannot be learned; it can only be reached by direct experience, ecstasy, and inner transformation.
The extraordinarily rich, varied, and sub-de imagery should not be misunderstood. The seemingly sensual implies die spiritual: the Beloved is God or the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH); wine is the knowledge and love of God; the tavern is die heart; and physical beauty is the mirror of divine illumination.
Qaunvali is sung in many languages, originally Farsi (Persian), Turkish and Arabic, then in Hindi, Punjabi, Sindi and other lan?guages of India and Pakistan. Universal to all these lan?guages is the name of Allah -and the strong, driving rhythmic base of the music suggests the ceaselessly repeated sound of Allah's name. Over this, the lines are first sung by a soloist, then repeated and emphasized by the chorus. Slowly building in intensity, a powerful atmos?phere is generated in which performers and audience are drawn together. Members of the audience dance -some spin into trance-like states,
others shower the Qawwalis with fistfuls of paper money. The greatness of Qawwals is determined by their ability to create this atmosphere, building a bridge between the finite and the infinite, allowing an audience to touch the liberation of their own spirit and to sense and be filled with the presence of God.
Whilst die poetry is all important to the Sufi, the passion and intensity of the music also have the power to move someone who cannot understand the words, seeming to touch the heart and stir the spirit direcdy, causing an intoxication, a rapturous joy, and an understanding which speaks in a tran?scendent language.
The stories tell us diat Qmwvali was born in the twelfth century, when the great Sufi saint Hazrat Moinuddin Chisti (buried at Ajmer, India) first came to bring the message of Islam to the Hindus of India. Seeing how people loved their own devotional music (bhajans) much more than his discourses, he realized that the way to their hearts was to
.ring the praises of Allah. He was, of course, drawing on a long tradition of ecstatic, joy?ful and mystical singing, reaching back over two centuries to the early traditions of Turko-Persian mystics. This rich heritage, drawing both on the great Sufi saints, such as Amir Khusro, and on anonymous folk contributors, has built the formidable range and diversity which is the Qawwali poetry of today.
Qawwali is the Muslim devotional music of the Indo-Pakistani sub-continent. The word "qawwali" comes from the Arabic word "qual" meaning utterance. Orthodox Muslims do not approve of using music in worship, but music as part of the devotional tradition on the sub-continent goes back at least six centuries. Some believe that the musical tradition is strictly Indian, coming about when Muslim missionaries arrived. In order to bring Islam to the Hindus, it is believed that missionaries adopted the style of Hindu devotional music to convey their message.
Qawwali music has been developed from the inversion of Indian Ragas. On top of the rhythm, appears the vocals and harmoniums. The vocals reach their greatest intensity when the vocalists take turns singing, allow?ing the others to breathe. This creates the effect that they are singing without breathing. The harmoniums operate in the same way.
Qawwali is the music of the Sufis and the message is love. The language of love and unrequited love is the ghazal, a popular poetic form. In a society where the sexes are segregated and marriages are arranged with no regard for love, the ghazal has an audience of millions who identify with its meaning.
The ghazal is language of love at every level. Qawwals use this language to convey the Sufi message of universal love. The mes?sage is often the language of divine and ethereal love, but because all love is parallel, there are often verses which are unmistakably about a human being:
war hob in la I:
ham kahenge hal-i-dyl awr ap
farmaenge "kya"
Your indifference to me knows no limits,
O cherisher of slaves
how long must I keep on telling you the
state of my heart and
you keep on saying: "Did somebody
speak"
Romantic love is, and has for a very long time, been a serious threat to the societies in which the ghazal has been the dominant form of poetry. Love is regarded as a plague, a sickness. This view is shared by the lover: love is a sentence of death, a recipe for mad?ness.
nagahjo vwh sanam sytam ejad a
geya
dekhe se taxor ws ke, xwda yad a
geya
My idol, my fair torturer stood before me stricken with awe, God came into my mind
The parallels with the religious experience are clear. The beloved need not be human. It is said to be a vital element of the best ghazals that they should be interpretable on two planes. In the traditional system, these two planes are described as yshq-i-haqiqi, true love, and yshq-i-majazi, allegorical love. It is the earthly love that is seen as the allegory and the divine love is seen as the true form.
The Sabri Brothers, Haji Ghulam Faris Sabri and Haji Maqbool Ahmed Sabri were born in 1930 and 1941 respectively in East Punjab, India. They are members of the Sufi sect of the Sabriya of which all members take the name "Sabri." They come from a musical family with both grandfathers and their father being important musicians.
The Sabri brothers had several teachers, one of whom was their father. He advised them at a young age to change the musical notes of Sargam (Sa-Ro-Ga-Ma-Pa-Dha-Mi-Sa) into the utterance of the word "Allah." This practice purified their hearts through the Divine Light.
The Sabris began careers as Qawwals at the ages of seven and five in East Punjab. Their contribution to recorded popular music began with a Qawwali recorded in 1958 Hera Koi Nahin Hai Teray Siwa. It was a hit and pushed them towards fame in Pakistan and the Indian sub-continent. Since then, they have released a number of hit songs which have been known to stay at number one on the Pakistan charts for up to five years! They have tried to spread their message of love into the realm of the music business by translating the essence of Qawwali into popular music and film.
This afternoons concert marks the Sabri Brothers' debut under UMS auspices.

Trio in C Major, Op. 87
Johannes Brahms
Born on May 7, 1833 in Hamburg
Died on April 3, 1897 in Vienna
Although Brahms has often, and justly, been called the last of the great classical composers, it is only the most superficial lis?tener who could deny that his music possess?es qualities of the most intense romanticism. The richness and abundance of his musical genius poured forth not only in his sym?phonies, but in his chamber works as well.
During the summer of 1882, while vaca?tioning in Ischl, Brahms completed two major chamber compositions -the magis?terial C Major trio and the joyous string quintet in F. Actually, he had written the expansive first movement of the trio in March 1880, just before his first summer in Ischl. In June 1882 he quickly finished the remaining three movements.
The Trio in C Major, Op. 87, the second of three such works in that form by Brahms, was conceived on a large scale of epic grandeur, combining Classical fluency with Romantic lyricism. Throughout much of the piece the piano part is cast in such a heroic mold as to force the two string instruments to band together, playing in octaves or at least in the same rhythm against the key?board, yet resulting in a perfect balance between strings and piano. While the mas?terful working-out of the themes recalls the style of Haydn, the sonorities very often are close to those of Schubert's Piano Trios; the character of the music, however, is all Brahms' own.
The main theme of the first movement is played at the outset by the violin and cello in octaves; this theme is so perfectly con?ceived for the strings that they play it at each of the major formal statements in the sonata-form movement. The sedate second theme, on the piano, has a rippling accom?paniment in the left hand that becomes a
third subject in its own right. A climactic arrival back in the home key suggests a repeat of the exposition, but moves instead into the expansive development. The tradi?tional recapitulation of all the themes and an extensive coda bring the movement to its conclusion.
The slow movement, in a minor, is a set of variations. The strings first present the main theme, a gypsy-like melody of marked Hungarian flavor, against an accompani?ment of off-beat chords in the piano. Brahms, as usual, stricdy retains the shape of die theme for each of die variations. The first, third and fifth variations are based on the string melody, while the second and fourth variadons are derived from the piano accompaniment of die original theme. The last variation returns to die minor mode but converts die original theme into the 68 meter of die preceding section before expanding into the quiet afterthought of die coda.
Instead of die "joke" diat the word scherzo implies, the third movement is dark and shadowy, cast in c minor, its atmosphere was once likened to "an eerie rusding at twi?light," by musicologist Peter Ladiam. When die lyrical music of die Trio section moves into die bright key of C Major, the effect is all the stronger. The reprise of die scherzo, however, brings back die aura of mystery and bleakness that was present at the begin?ning of the movement.
In total contrast to die scherzo, die Finale, labeled giocoso (playful), is good-natured and spirited; the intensity of die proceedings, however, preclude any humor?ous content. Two themes come into play: one expressive and impassioned, performed for die most part by the two strings together; die odier, contrastingly lighter in character, playfully pitting the duple rhythm of the strings against the triplets of the piano. The exuberance of diis movement brings this masterful work to its brilliant conclusion.
After a private run-through performance on August 29, 1882, at the home of die com?poser's friend Ignaz Brull, Brahms' Trio No. 2 in C Major, Op. 87 received its official pre?miere in Frankfurt, later that year on December 29, widi the composer at die piano.
Trio No.i in c minor, Op. 8
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born on September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg
Died on August 9, 1975 in Moscow
During his student days at die Leningrad Conservatory, die young Shostakovich used to accompany silent film on piano at the local cinema. One day, late in die fall of 1923, die seventeen-year-old Dmitri took along two friends, a violinist and a cellist, and spent the enure film rehearsing a com?position he'd recendy completed. The film's audience was less than enthusiastic about the music diey heard that day, and respond?ed with occasional boos and hisses. But diey couldn't have known dien that Shostakovich would become one of die twentiedi century's most revered chamber music composers, or diat diey were hearing die world premiere performance of his first chamber work, die Piano Trio in c minor, Op. 8.
A one-movement work, it adheres to die traditional sonata form so closely that when Shostakovich applied for entrance to die Moscow Conservatory in 1926, die admis?sions panel unexpectedly accepted die Piano Trio as evidence of his mastery of diat compositional form ("something they never would have allowed in Leningrad!" Dmitri wrote to his mother). But this youthful work is unusually rich in emotional variety and maturity, and sounds like anydiing but a prosaic or tradition-bound formal exercise.
The first three notes in the cello, a descending chromatic scale, create a kind of leitmotifthat informs die entire work. After a
rhapsodic and occasionally sprightly intro?duction that wanders through harmonically distant keys, the resolute first theme anchors the piece firmly in the c-minor tonic. But that soon gives way to a luminously lyrical E-flat Major theme in the cello, accompanied by gently chiming parallel triads in the piano, that recalls the late-nineteenth-century French composers; the trio's subtide, Poeme, makes the French allusion even more overt. After a developmental section, die introduc?tory rhapsody returns, and leads smoothly into a recapitulation of this lyrical second dieme. Its peaceful, meditative quality makes die subsequent repeat of die first dieme (widi its chromatic motion in die darker registers) sound menacing radier dian resolute, but a fortissimo restatement of die lyric theme in C Major triumphandy dispels die direat and die trio ends affirma?tively.

Trio in c minor, Op.66
Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy
Born on February 3, 1809 in Hamburg
Died on November 4, 1847 in Leipzig
Felix Mendelssohn, like Mozart, was one of music's great prodigies, a litde boy in whose compositions diere was almost noth?ing childlike. The young composer's grand father was Moses Mendelssohn, the Jewish philosopher of die Enlightenment who was immortalized as Lessing's Nathan the Wise, and his father was a wealthy banker who sought opinions of his son's potential from the most distinguished musicians of die time. When diey assured him that die boy was an audientic genius, nodiing was spared to bring him to artistic maturity.
The musicales held on alternate Sunday mornings in the Mendelssohns' great house in Berlin could not be missed by any touring
performer who passed through the Prussian capital. There was always chamber music, sometimes an orchestra, occasionally even an opera. The guests frequently performed, and almost every time there was a work on the program by young Felix, who learned his craft, developed his skills, and polished his art in this privileged workshop. He grew up to be the greatest German composer of his time and one of its most influential fig?ures. Musicians as diverse as Berlioz, Chopin, and Liszt were his friends, and Schumann was his disciple.
Late in his short life Mendelssohn's responsibilities to numerous monarchs, including the King of Prussia in Berlin, the King of Saxony in Dresden and Queen Victoria, became burdensome. His Directorship of the Leipzig Orchestra and Conservatory and his enormous popularity in England left him too little time for a pri?vate life with his beloved family and no time to write to please himself rather than others. In December 1844, he began to extricate himself from all these pressures by moving to Frankfurt. There he lived as a simple citi?zen, refusing all engagements, among them an invitation to participate in a music festi?val in New York. It was in Frankfurt that he completed his six organ sonatas and, in February 1845, began this Trio, which he finished in the spring or early summer.
In April, Mendelssohn wrote to his sister, 'The Trio is a bit nasty to play, but not really difficult." In fact it is not really nasty, but it is by no means easy. The piano part reflects the quiet power and the fleet, fluent style that Mendelssohn's contemporaries described in his playing. The string writing too is demanding, and the violinist in the first public performance, on December 20, 1845, was Ferdinand David, for whom Mendelssohn had written his Violin Concerto in 1844. The Trio is dedicated to Louis Spohr (1784-1859), an important violinist and composer.
This is a big work and a more serious one than his popular, early Trio in d minor, and it is a nearly perfect example of Mendelssohn's mastery of a difficult esthetic problem: Romantic expression within Classical forms. The principal material of the first movement, "Allegro energico e con fuoca," is a pair of contrasting themes, the first darkly passionate and the second gentle and lyrical, which are powerfully developed. The two middle movements are lighter in tone, a simple "Andante espressivo" and a witty, elfin Scherzo, "Molto allegro, quasi presto." In the Finale, the leaping first sub?ject returns us to the emotional world of the first movement. There are tempestuous out?bursts, dramatic contrasts, tense textures, and at the end, a coda of great power.
Since its formation in 1980, Trio Fontenay has been passion?ately dedicated to piano trio lit?erature. Critics have lavishly praised their technical excellence, richness of tone, and depth of interpretive imagination. Inspired by their early study with the Adadeum Quartet, the ensemble performs throughout Europe and North and South America. They are regularly welcomed in London, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, and Amsterdam and were named "Trio-in-Residence" at Paris' Theatre Chatelet. Last season they performed the complete Beethoven cycle at Paris' Theatre Chatelet, London's Wigmore Hall, Berlin's Schauspielhaus, Amsterdam's Concertgebouw, and in Munich, Cologne, and Hamburg. They gave another United States tour this past spring, including performances in San Francisco, Pittsburgh, San Juan, and at the State University of New York at Purchase.
Trio Fontenay has recorded for harmonia mundi, Denon, and EMI Electrola and has
been under exclusive contract with Teldec where they are currently working on their second recording of the complete Schubert trios for the label. Their recent recording of the Beethoven Piano Trios on the Teldec label received the 1994 Preis Der Deutschen Schallplattendrilik, the German Record Critics Award. They have recorded the complete piano trios by Brahms, Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Dvorak, as well as works by Ives, Schumann, and a RavelDebussyFaure disc. The name "Fontenay" was chosen for two reasons: first, it is the old French translation
for "source" and "fantasy," and second, it is the name of the street near the Hamburg Conservatory where the ensemble first met to practice. In 1983, Trio Fontenay won the Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy Prize from the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation and German Conservatories. Two years later it earned first prize in the National German Music Competition in Bonn.
This evening's performance marks the Trio Fonlenay's debut under VMS auspices.

Acis and Galatea
George Frideric Handel
Born on February 23, 1685 in Halle, Germany
Died on April 14, 1759 in London
Acis and Galatea has always been one of Handel's most popular works, yet has seldom if ever been revived as he originally wrote it or as he directed it in any of his subsequent performances. Its history is complex and of considerable interest. He first grappled with the subject in a serenata, Ad, Galatea e Polifemo, composed to celebrate a nobleman's wed?ding in Naples in 1708. This had only the three characters of the title, Aci as a soprano castrato, Galatea as a contralto; there was no chorus. It has nothing musically in common with the English setting except the accompa?niment of one aria, which Handel has also used elsewhere. Nor does it represent a particular climax in Handel's career. The English Acis on the other hand is a landmark not only in Handel's career but in the history of English music, for it establishes a link between the masque of Purcell's time and Handel's oratorios, which it strikingly antici?pates in its dramatic use of the chorus. Handel's earlier settings of English words, mostly for the church, had followed the native tradition established by Purcell and his contemporaries. Acis and Galatea was something entirely different.
Its birth was not wholly without prece?dent. The craze for all-sung Italian opera in London, introduced by Clayton's Arsinoe in 1705 and reaching a climax in 1711 with Handel's Rinaldo, sung by the leading singers in Europe, inspired a reaction in favour of stage works in English. This move?ment, in which the poets Colley Cibber and John Hughes and the composers J.C. Pepusch andJ.E. Galliard were the most prominent figures, could not seriously challenge the Italian opera, though one work, Calypso and Telemachus by Hughes and Galliard, did reach the stage of the Haymarket opera
house. In an attempt (in Cibbers' words) "to give the Town a little good Musick in a Language they understand," they concen?trated on masques performed as afterpieces to straight plays in the theatres in Drury Lane and Lincoln's Inn Fields. These were in effect short operas, generally in two scenes or interludes, in the Italian style (that is, with sung recitative in place of spoken dialogue); the plots were pastoral or mythological, with a vernacular comic element but little or no chorus. The principal composer was Pepusch at Drury Lane; his Venus and Adonis (March 1715) and Apollo andDaphne (January 1716) were antecedents if not models for Handel, the former with a bird aria "Chirping warblers" accompanied by a jlagelletto, the latter with close resemblances in plot and language (Daphne, lustfully pursued by the god, is changed into a tree). An earlier masque, Ads and Galatea by John Eccles (1701), had a decidedly coarse libretto that could have offered Handel nothing, but like the others, it enjoyed a good deal of success.
In June 1717 Italian opera at the Haymarket fell into abeyance, with no immediate prospect of resumption, and Handel, who had been living in the house?hold of the Earl of Burlington, took a post as house composer to the Earl of Carnarvon (later Duke of Chandos) at Cannons a few miles out of London. Here he found Pepusch installed as Master of the Musick. Carnarvon had close links with the Burlington circle, which included the poets Pope and Gay and the author and physician John Arbuthnot, with all of who Handel was probably already acquainted. This was the milieu from which Ads and Galatea sprang.
The simple plot, a Sicilian myth personi?fying the activities of Mount Etna, comes from Book XIII of Ovid's Metamorphoses; it had already been the subject of an opera by Lully (1686). The shepherd Acis and the nymph Galatea are in love, but Acis has a rival in the giant Polyphemus, who pays
clumsy court to Galatea. Though warned by the chorus of nymphs and shepherds, and despite the pleading of Galatea and the advice of Damon, another shepherd, Acis defies the giant. While the lovers pledge eternal faith the furious Polyphemus kills Acis with a massive rock. The chorus bid her dry her tears: he will flow on for ever, "mur?muring still his gentle love."
This libretto was a composite undertak?ing, mainly by Pope and Gay with a contri?bution from Hughes (whose cantata Venus and Adonis had been Handel's first setting of English words in 1711) and possibly from Arbuthnot. Embedded in the text are adap?tations from Pope's Pastorals and translation of the Iliad and Dryden's translation of the Metamorphoses. Handel composed the music in the early summer of 1718; a guest at Cannons in a letter of 27 May mentioned "a litde opera now a making for [Carnarvon's] diversion whereof the Musick will not be made publick" and added "it is as good as finished." It was presumably performed at Cannons, but nothing is known of the exact date, the artists taking part, or the manner of presentation.
Something of Handel's intentions can be discerned from his autograph score. It was conceived as a chamber work in a single act for very small forces: five voices, a soprano, three tenors and a bass, who sang both the solo and the chorus parts, and a minute orchestra, perhaps consisting of two violins, two oboes (doubling on recorders), two cel?los and harpsichord continuo, twelve per?sons in all. There was no alto voice, no viola and no double basse. The chorus "Happy we" and the air "Would you gain the tender creature" were not present. Against the tenor parts in the opening chorus Handel wrote the names of three singers (one of them James Blackly, who had sung the part of Mars in Pepusch's Venus and Adonis at Drury Lane), but later crossed them out (Brian Trowell has shown, from internal
evidence, that Handel's first plan may have been to use only three voices, as in the Naples serenata). But Ads was probably never performed in the version of the auto?graph. A very early copy belonging to the Earl of Malmesbury, dated 1718 and almost certainly based on the lost performing score, records changes. A bassoon and a double bass had joined the Cannons band; the obbligato instrument in "O ruddier than the cherry" was a sopranino, not a treble recorder ; and an air, "Would you gain the tender creature" was added for the third tenor in the character of Coridon, so that each of the five singers had a solo as well as an ensemble part. The number of singers was not increased; the names of the charac?ters are written against the parts in one of the choruses.
Handel left his Cannons employment in the winter of 1718-19 and returned to the King's Theatre for his most ambitious oper?atic enterprise as composer to the Royal Academy of Music; he made no attempt to follow up Ads, a misfortune for opera in English. There was a single performance for a singer's benefit in March 1731, for which he may have lent material (the songs but not the score had been published in 1722). In the following year Thomas Arne senior, a haberdasher by trade and father of the com?poser and the actress-singer Susanna Cibber, mounted a season of English operas at the Little Theatre in the Haymarket, including two staged performances of Ads and Galatea on 17 and 19 May. It was clumsily divided into three acts and claimed as "the first time it ever was performed in Theatrical Way." Handel, challenged by a rival company mak?ing unauthorised use of his work opposite his own theatre, retaliated on 10 June with a revised and inflated version "performed by a great Number of the best Voices and Instruments," including the Italian singers of the opera company. This ungainly hotch?potch combined excerpts from the Cannons
Acts, much of it translated into Italian, part of the Naples serenata, ten numbers lifted of adapted from earlier works, including the Brockes Passion and the Ode for Queen Anne's Birthday, and a very little new music. It was sung in a mixture of English and Italian (a dirowback to the first years of the century) and given with costumes and scenery but no action on the stage. The cast included five supernumerary shepherds and shepherdess?es. It evidently drew the public, for Handel revived it in December 1732, at Oxford the following year, and in 1734 and 1736, alter?ing the score each time according to the available singers but rendering it no more coherent.
In 1739, when he had no opera compa?ny, Handel reverted to the English version, but not in its earlier form. He expanded the scoring, made a number of cuts, substituted a recitative for Damon (sung by a boy) for the ensemble tease, Galatea, cease to mourn," divided the work into two acts, and ended the first with a new fourpart chorus, "Happy We," in the version with carillon, a new glockenspiel-type instrument which he had employed in Saul and other works of this period. The shorter form of this chorus, familiar in most scores and modern perfor?mances, dates from Handel's last revival in Dublin in 1742. Before that, in 1741, he had put on yet another bilingual version because one or two singers (in his last opera season) either could not or would not sing in English. In 1743 Walsh published the full score, and Handel washed his hands of it. Ads and Galatea remained popular; it was by far the most frequently performed of Handel's major works during his life, enjoy?ing at least 106 performances.
There has been much debate about the category to which Ads and Galatea belongs. The matter is not without importance, since it may affect the manner of performance. During Handel's life it was advertised or described variously as a Pastoral, an English
Pastoral Opera, a Serenata (Handel's 1732 bilingual version), a Pastoral or Bucolic Poem, a Musical Entertainment (or an Entertainment), a Pastoral or Masque, an Oratorio, or simply "Mr. Handel's music." Walsh's printed editions called it successively an Opera, a Masque, a Serenade and a Mask (the 1743 full score). Chrysander darkened counsel in his biography by calling it first an oratorio and later a cantata, though he pub?lished it as a masque. Handel gave it no title in the autograph. The catalogue of the Cannons library, dated 23 August 1720 and signed by Pepusch, lists a copy (probably the 1718 performing score) as "O the pleasure of the plain, a masque for 5 voices and instruments." Masque is undoubtedly the best descriptive title; the one thing it emphatically is not is an oratorio, which always implied a sacred or at least a moral subject.
There were at least two fully staged pro?ductions in the early years, by Arne in 1732 and by Mr. and Mrs. Davis at the Aungier Street Theatre, Dublin, in February 1735. Since Handel's death it has had innumerable stage productions, far more than any of his other English works. Yet it would have been difficult to stage at Cannons with only five singers. Perhaps it was given, like Handel's 1732 serenata, with scenery and costumes but no acting (other than gesture), what we should now call a semi-staged performance.
The question arises because the music is intensely dramatic and seems to yearn for the theatre, not surprisingly since Handel was before all else an opera composer. From the chorus "Wretched lovers" to the end the score constantly suggests physical action and the clash of personalities: the giant strides of Polyphemus, the clumsiness of his wooing, this fury cutting across the lovers' congruence in the trio (without disturbing the balance of the design), the vividness and pathos of Acis's dying recitative, the sudden interrup?tion of Galatea's lament, where the chorus
becomes an active participant in the drama. Handel, always responsive to concrete rather than abstract imagery, direct emotion rather than vague generalities, was clearly inspired by the language of the libretto. Nevertheless this is an artificial world, a world of myth rather than human activity. The characters, unlike those of Handel's Italian operas, the English dramas Semele and Hercules and most of the oratorios, are viewed from a certain distance. Acis and Galatea might be figures in a Watteau landscape. Polyphemus is a grotesque, observed with no litde humour: when he demands a hundred reeds of decent growdi to make a pipe for his capacious mouth with which to serenade Galatea, his air is accompanied by the smallest and squeakiest instrument in the orchestra, a sopranino recorder. (Ovid too treats him half-humorously: he combs his hair widi a rake and trims his beard with a sickle). If the approach were even a trifle closer to realism, the story would be intolerable. At the same time Acts and Galatea is wholly free from coarse farmyard buffoonery on die one hand and any attempt to attach an edi?fying moral on the other. For this we must thank die poets, who doubtless knew that it reflected Handel's fundamental approach to his art.
The music scarcely needs introduction, but one point may be worth mentioning. Acis and Galatea contains eleven airs. The first ten, five in each act, as well as the open?ing chorus and the duet "Happy We," are in ABA form, seven airs and the chorus widi exact da capo, three airs and die duets slightly modified by a dal segno. In the eleventh and last air, "Heart, die seat of soft delight," die emotional high point of the score, Handel leads die listener to expect the same design, moving to die tonic as if for a repeat of the opening. Then comes the surprise: die beautiful litde rising sequence that first appears in die third and fourth bars of die ritornello and in bars thirteen and fourteen
on the voice, instead of returning in its famil?iar two-bar form, soars to a threefold repeti?tion at the words "murm'ring still his gentle love." It is in details like this that Handel reveals his supreme genius. It is perhaps die most magical touch in an entrancing work.

Chorus
Oh, the pleasure of the plains! Happy nymphs and happy swains, Harmless, merry, free and gay, Dance and sport the hours away. For us the zephyr blows, For us distills the dew, For us unfolds die rose, And flow'rs display their hue. For us the winters rain, For us die summers shine, Spring swells for us the grain, And autumn bleeds die vine.
Galatea
Ye verdant plains and woody mountains, Purling streams and bubbling fountains, Ye painted glories of the field, Vain are the pleasures which ye yield; Too thin the shadow of the grove, Too faint the glass, too cool my love.
Hush, ye pretty warbling quire!
Your thrilling strains
Awake my pains,
And kindle fierce desire.
Cease your song, and take your flight,
Bring back my Acis to my sight!
Acis
Where shall I seek the charming fair
Direct die way, kind genius of die mountains!
O tell me, if you saw my dear!
Seeks she die groves, or bathes in crystal
fountains
Damon
Stay, shepherd, stay! See, how thy flocks yonder valley stray What means this melancholy air No more thy tuneful pipe we hear.
Shepherd, what art thou pursuing Heedless running to thou ruin; Share our joy, our pleasure share! Leave thy passion till tomorrow, Let the day be free from sorrow, Free from love, and free from care!
Acis
Lo! Here my love: turn, Galatea, hither turn
thy eyes.
See, at thy feet the longing Acis lies!
Love in her eyes sits playing, And sheds delicious death; Love on her lips is straying, And warbling in her breath! Love on her breast sits panting, And swells with soft desire; No grace, no charm is wanting To set the heart on fire.
Galatea
Oh! Didst thou know the pains of absent
love,
Acis would ne'er from Galatea rove.
As when the dove
Laments her love,
All on the naked spray;
When he returns,
No more she mourns,
But loves the live-long day.
Billing, cooing,
Panting, wooing,
Melting murmurs fill the grove,
Melting murmurs, lasting love.
Galatea & Acis
Happy we! What joys I feel! What charms I see!
Of all youths thou dearest boy! Of all nymphs thou brightest fair! Thou all my bliss, thou all my joy!
Chorus
Wretched lovers! Fate has passed This sad decree: no joy shall last. Wretched lovers, quit your dream! Behold the monster Polypheme! See what ample strides he takes! The mountain nods, the forest shakes; The waves run frighten'd to the shores: Hark, how the thund'ring giant roars!
Polyphemus
I rage, I melt, I burn!
The feeble god has stabb'd me to the heart.
Thou trusty pine,
Prop of my godlike steps, I lay thee by!
Bring me a hundred reeds of decent growth,
To make a pipe for my capacious mouth;
In soft enchanting accents let me breathe
Sweet Galatea's beauty, and my love.
O ruddier than the cherry,
O sweeter than the berry,
O nymph more bright
Than moonshine night,
Like kidlings blithe and merry!
Ripe as the melting cluster,
No lily has such luster;
Yet hard to tame
As raging flame,
And fierce as storms that bluster!
Whither, fairest, art though running. Still my warm embraces shunning
Galatea
The lion calls not his prey,
Nor bids the wolf the lambkin stay.
Polyphemus
Thee, Polyphemus, great as Jove, Calls to empire and to love, To his palace in the rock, To his dairy, to his flock,
To the grape of purple hue, To the plum of glossy blue, Wildings, which expecting stand, Proud to be gather'd by the hand.
Galatea
Or infant limbs to make my food, And swill full draughts of human blood! Go monster! Bid some other guest: I loathe the host, I loathe the feast.
Polyphemus
Cease to beauty to be suing, Ever whining love disdaining. Let the brave their aims pursuing. Still be conqu'ring, not complaining.
Damon
Would you gain the tender creature, Softly, gently, kindly treat her: SufFring is the lover's part. Beauty by contraint possessing, You enjoy but half the blessing, Lifeless charms without the heart.
Acis
His hideous love provokes my rage: Weak as I am, I must engage! Inspir'd with thy victorious charms, The god of love will lend his arms.
Love sounds th'alarm And fear is a-flying When beauty's the prize, What mortal fears dying In defence of my treasure, I'd bleed at each vein; Without her no pleasure, For life is a pain.
Damon
Consider, fond shepherd, How fleeting's the pleasure, That flatters our hopes In pursuit of the fair! The joys that attend it, By moments we measure,
But life is too little To measure our care.
Galatea
Cease, o cease, thou gentle youth, Trust my constancy and truth, Trust my truth and pow'rs above, The pow'rs propitious still to love!
Galatea & Acis
The flocks shall leave the mountains, The woods the turde dove, The nymphs forsake the fountains, Ere I forsake my love!
Polyphemus
Torture! Fury! Rage! Despair! I cannot, cannot bear!
Galatea & Acis
Not show'rs to larks so pleasing, Nor shunshine to die bee, Not sleep to toil so easing, As diese dear smiles to me.
Polyphemus
Fly, swift, thou massy ruin, fly! Die, presumptuous Acis. Die!
Acis
Help, Galatea! Help, ye parent gods! And take me dying to your deep abodes.
Chorus
Mourn, all ye muses! Weep, all ye swains! Tune, tune your reeds to doleful strains! Groans, cries and howlings fill the neigh-b'ring shore: Ah, the gende Acis is no more!
Galatea
Must I my Acis still bemoan, Inglorious crush'd beneadi diat stone
Chorus
Cease, Galatea, cease to grieve! Bewail not whom thou canst relieve.
Galatea
Must the lovely charming youth Die for his constancy and truth
Chorus
Cease, Galatea, cease to grieve! Bewail not whom thou canst relieve; Call forth thy pow'r, employ thy art The goddess soon can heal thy smart.
Galatea
Say what comfort can you find
For dark dispair o'erclouds my mind.
Chorus
To kindred gods the youth return, Through verdant plains to roll his urn.
Galatea
'Tis done: thus I exert my pow'r divine; Be thou immortal, though thou art not mine!
Heart, the seat of soft delight, Be thou now a fountain bright! Purple be no more thy blood, Glide thou like a crystal flood. Rock, thy hollow womd disclose! The bubbling fountain, lo! It flows; Through the plains he joys to rove, Murm'ring still his gentle love.
Chorus
Galatea, dry thy tears, Acis now a god appears! See how he rears him from his bed, See the wreath that binds his head. Hail! Thou gentle murm'ring stream, Shepherd's pleasure, muses' theme! Through the plains still joy to rove, Murm'ring still thy gentle love.
The vocal and instrumen?tal ensemble Les Arts Florissants was founded by William Christie in 1979 in Paris, three cen?turies after the creation of the work by Marc-
Antoine Charpentier from which it takes its name. From the outset, the group has devot?ed itself to research into seventeenthand eighteenth-century music. Their repertoire is composed, to a large extent, of unedited works, most notably those of the Bibliotheque Nationale de France in Paris such as Charpentier, Campra, Monteclair, Mouline, Lambert, Bouzignac, and Rossi.
Les Arts Florissants has also particularly earned recognition for its interpretations of operas, notably at the Opera du Rhin with Purcell's Dido and Eneas, Monteverdi's Ballo delle Ingrate (1983), Rameau's Anacreon, and Charpentier's Action (1985) staged by Pierre Barrat.

orn in I'Jll in Buffalo, New Yoi k. William Christie began his musical studies with his mother and went mi in study the piano, organ, and harpsii hord, notably with Ralph Kirkpatrick, who encouraged him in his pre?dispositions for French music. After graduat?ing from Harvard and Yale, he settled in France in 1971 and made his first recording for the ORTF, working in close collabora?tion with Genevieve Thibault de Chambure. He then continued his harpsichord studies with Kenneth Gilbert and David Fuller and has given recitals in all principal European festivals. Between 1971 and 1975, he worked with the Five Centuries Ensemble, an experi?mental group devoted to ancient and con?temporary musics, and has taken part in numerous works of composers such as Berio, Bussotti, Feldman, and de Pablo. In 1976, he joined Rene Jacobs' Concerto Vocale, where he played the piano and the organ until 1980.
In 1979 he founded Les Arts Florissants and rapidly began exploring French, Italian, and English music of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries. This peculiar ensem?ble that performed in small structures as well as with soloists, choir, and orchestra, gave him the opportunity to contribute greatly to the resurgence of interest in vocal technique of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Also interested in theatre and French declamation, William Christie directed a number of French lyric tragedies with Les Arts Florissants, stage directors such as Jean-Marie Villegier, Robert Carsen, Alfredo Arias, Jorge Lavelli, Adrian Noble, Pier-Luigi Pizzi, and Pierre Barrat, and choreographers like Francine Lancelot, Beatrice Massin, Ana Yepes, Shirley Wynne, Maguy Marin, and Francois Raffinot.
In 1982, he became the first American professor at the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Paris. His role as a professor has involved him in a number of important student productions, often in col?laboration with other pedagogical institu?tions such as The Royal Conservatory of The Hague, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and the Conservatoire National Superieur de Musique de Lyon.
William Christie has also made an impor?tant reappraisal of the works of Marc-Antoine Charpentier, and indeed an impor?tant part of the discography of Les Arts Florissants is given over to this composer (twelve recordings). He has conducted the operas Medee and David & Jonathas, as well as the interludes from the Malade Imaginaire by MoliereCharpentier. His attraction to the music of Jean-Philippe Rameau led him to record all the harpsichord works by this composer. He has also conducted Anacreon, Les Indes Galantes, Pygmalion, Netee Myrthis, Castor Pollux and Les Grands Motets.
He is regularly invited to conduct other orchestras, including those in Paris, Lyon, London, Geneva, Boston, and San Francisco. This past summer, William Christie made his debut at Glyndebourne in a new production of Handel's Theodora with Peter Sellars.
William Christie loves the French "art de vivre" and is fond of French gastronomy and gardens.
In January 1993, William Christie was awarded the prestigious French Legion d'Honneur and is now a French citizen.

Proceeds from the evening benefit the UMS Education Program.
Van Cliburn was selected as the first artist so honored in May 1996 because of his distin?guished performance history under UMS aus?pices, the affection shared between him and the people of Ann Arbor, his passionate devo?tion to young people and to education, and his unique ability to bring together and transform individuals and entire nations through the power of music.
