Dear Friend,
Thanks very much for attending this perfor?mance and for supporting the University Musical Society (UMS) by being a member of the audience. I'd like to invite you to become even more involved with UMS. There are many ways you can do this, and the rewards are great.
Educational Activities. This season UMS is hosting more than 150 performance-related educational events, nearly all of them free and open to the public. Want to learn from a member of the New York City Opera National Company what it's like to be on the road for four months, or find out from Beethoven scholar Steven Whiting why the composer's music, beloved by today's audi?ences, was reviled by many in Beethoven's own time Through our "Master of Arts" interview series, Performance-Related Educational Presentations (PREPs), post-per?formance chats with the artists, and a variety of other activities, I invite you to discover the answers to these and other questions and to deepen your understanding and appreciation of the performing arts.
UMS Choral Union. Does singing with an outstanding chorus appeal to you UMS' own 180-voice chorus, which performs annu?ally on the UMS series and as guest chorus with leading orchestras throughout the region, invites you to audition and to experience the joys of musicmaking with the wonderful people who make up the chorus.
Volunteering. We couldn't exist with?out the marvelous work of our volunteers. I invite you to consider volunteering -usher?ing at concerts, staffing the information kiosk in the lobby, serving on the UMS Advisory Committee, helping prepare our artists' welcome packets, offering your special talent to UMS, etc. -and joining the more than 500 people
who make up this absolutely critical part of the UMS family.
Group Activities. If you are a member of a service club, youth group, religious orga?nization, or any group that enjoys doing things together, I invite you to bring your group to a UMS event. There are terrific dis?counts and other benefits, not to mention the fun your group can have before, during, and after a UMS event.
UMS Membership. If you're not already a UMS member, I hope you'll consider becoming one. Not only do you receive the satisfaction of knowing that your financial support is helping us bring the world's best artists to our community, but there are numerous benefits to enjoy, including advance ticket purchase, invitations to special events, opportunities to meet artists, and more.
You can obtain further information about all of these opportunities throughout this pro?gram book and on our website (www.ums.org). You can also stop by the information kiosk in the lobby or come and talk to me directly. I'd love to meet you, answer any questions you might have, and, most importantly, learn of anything we can do at UMS to make your concertgoing experience the best possible. Your feedback and ideas for ways we can improve are always welcome. If you don't happen to catch me in the lobby, please call me at my office in Burton Tower at 734.647.1174, or send an e-mail message to kenfisch@umich.edu.
Sincerely,
Kenneth C. Fischer President

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan
The goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is clear: to engage, educate, and serve Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 119 years, strong leader?ship coupled with a devoted community have placed UMS in a league of internationally-recognized performing arts presenters. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied his?tory, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in the next millenium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stim?ulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
The Musical Society grew from a group of
local university and townspeople who gath?ered 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. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been performed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. The Musical Society included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
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 theatre. Through educational endeavors, com-missjoning of new works, youth programs, artists residencies and other collaborative pro?jects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. The Musical Society now hosts over 70 concerts and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community which gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, the Power Center, the Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Museum of Art and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, the Musical Society is a separate not-for-profit organization, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contribu?tions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
UMS Choral Union
Thomas Sheets, conductor
For more information about the UMS Choral Union, please call 734.763.8997.
Throughout its 119-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orches?tras and conductors.
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. Four years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing in concert with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and Meadowbrook for subscrip?tion performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe, Prokofiev's Aleksandr Nevsky, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd.
In 1995, the Choral Union entered into 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, Bach's Mass in b minor and Verdi's Requiem. Last sea?son, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include performances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining with them in a rare presen?tation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8.
In this, its 119th season, the Choral Union will present Mendelssohn's Elijah with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Thomas Sheets. The chorus will also perform Porgy and Bess with the BirminghamBloomfield Symphony Orchestra and The Dream ofGerontius with the Toledo Symphony.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion -a love of the choral art.
Auditoria
Hill Auditorium
Standing tall and proud in the heart of the University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is associated with the best performing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the 20th Annual Ann Arbor May Festival in 1913, this impressive structure has served as a showplace for a variety of impor?tant debuts and long relationships throughout the past 84 years. With acoustics that highlight everything from the softest high notes of vocal recitalists to the grandeur of the finest orches?tras, Hill Auditorium is known and loved throughout the world.
Former U-M regent Arthur Hill bequeathed $200,000 to the University for the construction of an auditorium for lectures, concerts and other university events. Then-UMS President Charles Sink raised an addi?tional $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Beethoven's ever-popular Symphony No. 5.
The 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 improved wheelchair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
Hill Auditorium is slated for renovation. 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 conve?niences.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, 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, Newberry Hall and the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the
study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School which houses the 1,129-seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate stud?ies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher-level education, is the fact that neither of the Rackhams ever attended the University of Michigan.
Power Center for the Performing Arts
The Power Center for the Performing Arts was bred from a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate proscenium-stage 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, together with their son Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University, and amidst a list of University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately interest?ed, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for
Hill Auditorium
the construction of a new theatre.
The Power Center opened in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote). No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center fea?tures two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5,1928 at the peak of the vaudeville movie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat 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 sec?ond 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 stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ, acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Restoration of the bal?cony, outer lobby and facade is planned for 2003.
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 dedicated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
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 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splendid three manual "mechanical action" organ with thirty-four stops and fourty-five ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, 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 church a gathering place for the enjoyment and contem?plation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Auditoria, continued
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish 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 pro?grammatic initiative to present song in recital, the superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has become a recent venue addition to the Musical Society's roster and the home of the Song Recital series. This year's series cele?brates the alto voice with recitals by Marilyn Home, David Daniels, and Susanne Mentzer.
U-M Museum of Art
The University of Michigan Museum of Art houses one of the finest university art col?lections in the country and the second largest art collection in the state of Michigan. A community museum in a university set?ting, the Museum of Art offers visitors a rich and diverse permanent collection, supple?mented by a lively, provocative series of special exhibitions and a full complement of inter?pretive programs. UMS presents two special concerts in the Museum in the 1997-98 season.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, this well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmark is the box office and administra?tive location for the University Musical Society.
Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. During the academic year, visitors may climb up to the observation deck and watch the carillon being played from noon to 12:30 pm weekdays when classes are in session and most Saturdays from 10:15 to 10:45 am.
Education and Audience Development
During the past year, the University Musical Society's Education and Audience Development program has grown signifi?cantly. With a goal of deepening the under?standing of the importance of live performing arts as well as the major impact the arts can have in the community, UMS now seeks out active and dynamic collaborations and part?nerships to reach into the many diverse com?munities it serves.
Several programs have been established to meet the goals of UMS' Education and Audience Development program, including specially designed Family and Student (K-12) performances. This year, more than 6,000 stu?dents will attend the Youth Performance Series, which includes The Harlem Nutcracker, Chick Corea and Gary Burton, the New York City Opera National Company, Los Munequitos de Matanzas, and STREB.
The University Musical Society and the Ann Arbor Public Schools are members of the Kennedy Center Performing Arts Centers and Schools: Partners in Education Program.
Some highlighted activities that further the understanding of the artistic process and appreciation for the performing arts include:

The Canadian Brass, Jens Lindemann, trumpet; David Ohanian, French horn; Ronald Romm, trumpet; Eugene Watts, trombone; and Charles Daellenbach, tuba are now entering their twenty-sev?enth anniversary season. As one of the first "cross-over" classical ensembles, these classically trained virtuoso musicians have transformed a previously neglected group of instruments with a limited repertoire into an exciting and versatile ensemble which performs everything from Bach and Mozart to Gershwin and Dixieland. The innovative brass quintet is famous for keeping audiences entranced with original works for brass quintet (many of which were written specially for them by such distinguished composers as Lukas Foss and Peter Schickele) and transcriptions of exciting, often familiar, works. Added to their unique blend of virtuosity is an irresistible spontaneity and sense of humor.
The Canadian Brass, the first chamber ensemble ever to tour the People's Republic of China, have delighted audiences in North America, Europe, Japan, Australia, the Middle East and the former Soviet Union. Each season they give over 130 concerts in North America alone, performing from coast to coast at such major halls as New York's Carnegie Hall (where they appeared four times in one season), Orchestra Hall in Chicago, the Academy of Music in Philadelphia, the Ambassador Auditorium in the Los Angeles area, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC (where their concerts were sold out three times in one season). The Canadian Brass have appeared as featured guest artists with many leading American orchestras, including those of Cleveland, Detroit, Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Saint Louis and San Francisco; the National Symphony and the Boston, New York, and Philadelphia Pops. They are also a popular attraction at many summer music festivals, including Tanglewood, Mostly Mozart, Wolf Trap, Ravinia, Blossom and the Hollywood Bowl. Most recently these festivals have hosted their highly successful joint concerts with the Star of Indiana, one of the country's
premier drum and bugle corps, in spectacular, fully staged programs.
The Canadian Brass have been seen by millions on such television shows as The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, the Today show, CBS This Morning, Entertainment Tonight, Camera Three and Sesame Street. Collaborating with Philips Classics, The Canadian Brass became the first classical artists ever to record a television and laser disc project on state-of-the-art high definition tape (HDTV) at Thames TV in England as a pro?duction for Rhombus. The film, entitled Home Movies (now available on VHS & laser disc), was nominated for a Grammy Award 1994 in the cat?egory of Best Music Video (Long-Form), and has been aired frequently on Bravo and PBS. Also on PBS, they have appeared as guest artists on Evening at Pops with John Williams and the Boston Pops, Beverly Sills' Music Around the World, Canadian Brass at Wolf Trap, and the Victor Borge 80th Birthday Special They have also starred in their own one-hour PBS special, The Canadian Brass Live.
Music education has always been an impor?tant element of the Brass' annual activities, and they conduct workshops and master classes with young musicians as often as their schedule allows. Their wide and varied experiences on this front have yielded a new series of ensemble publications (Hal Leonard Publishing Corporation), which is graded for young brass students who seek the experience that only chamber music performance can offer. In addition to these publications, the Brass have published over 100 works drawn from their own repertoire. The group also has recently formed its own instrument company based in Wisconsin, featuring instruments designed by them (for both students and professionals alike) and distributed worldwide under the banner of The Canadian Brass Collection.
Having forged a new road for generations of brass players to come, The Canadian Brass can look back on their first quarter-century as a prelude to even greater levels of achievement.
This performance marks The Canadian Brass' eighth appearance under UMS auspices.

Bruckner and Mahler are still often men?tioned in a single breath. After all, they were both Austrian, their lives overlapped -in fact, they knew each other -and they both wrote symphonies on a mon?umental scale. It was only after World War II that the works of both became staples of the international concert repertoire, and today, with several complete recorded cycles of each man's symphonies readily available, their profound differences in style and artistic outlook become more and more apparent. It is not often, however, that those differences can be shown by placing the two composers on the same program. Beyond their sheer length, the symphonies of Bruckner and Mahler amount to musical journeys of such complexity that one would not normally want to hear them side by side.
With the publication of Mahler's Totenfeier in 1988 -exactly 100 years after it was written -we for the first time have an orchestral work by Mahler that will admit of more music to follow. Although Mahler conducted Totenfeier as a self-contained piece, he had conceived it as the first movement of his Symphony No. 2, which is how the music is universally known. It is also worth remembering that the score of the Symphony No. 2 calls for five minutes' rest after the first movement -an instruction that is almost never observed. As a symphonic movement, Totenfeier is both complete and incomplete, just like Bruckner's unfinished Symphony No. 9. Despite recent attempts to organize Bruckner's finale sketches into a coherent movement, the symphony's sublime third-movement "Adagio" has been universally accepted as a convincing ending, similar to Schubert's two-movement, unfinished symphony in b minor.
(It is worth taking a quick look at the chronology of the two works: the younger composer's work actually predates that of his older colleague. The three completed movements of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9 were written between 1891 and 1894, while Mahler's Totenfeier was completed in 1888. The remaining movements of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 were exactly contemporaneous with Bruckner's Symphony No. 9.)
Totenfeier (Funeral Feast)
Gustav Mahler
Born on July 7, 1860 in Kalischt, now
The Czech Republic Died on May 18, 1911 in Vienna
Totenfeier is the first version of the opening movement from Mahler's Symphony No. 2. It is almost the same music, although it is a few bars longer and is scored for a smaller orchestra than the symphony movement. As Mahler later told his friend and confidante Natalie Bauer-Lechner, the idea for this monumental funeral march originated in January 1888, when Mahler had a vision of himself lying dead on a bier. Immediately after this vision, Mahler set to work and com?posed Totenfeier in February 1888, in Leipzig where he was one of the two principal conduc?tors at the opera house (the other being Arthur Nikisch). The idea of the "funeral feast" was fur?ther reinforced by a work of one of Mahler's close friends, Siegfried Lipiner, who had translated a famous epic poem by the Polish poet Adam Mickiewicz. This work, although called Dziady (Forefathers) in the original, became Totenfeier in Lipiner's translation. Mahler biographer Henry-Louis de La Grange has suggested that the unhappy love affair and suicidal thoughts of one of Mickiewicz's heroes (named, incidentally, Gustav) may have been on Mahler's mind when composing the symphonic movement.
More than five years elapsed before Mahler wrote the additional movements of the Symphony No. 2. In the meantime, Totenfeier existed as a symphonic poem. It was not performed, however, until 1895, when Mahler presented the first three movements of the Symphony No. 2 with the Berlin Philharmonic. As late as 1896, after the entire symphony had been premiered, he once more conducted the first movement as a separate piece, under the title Totenfeier, at a concert in Berlin.
In 1891, when no performances were in sight, Mahler played Totenfeier on the piano for the great pianist and conductor Hans von Biilow, who exclaimed: "If what I just heard is music, then I no longer understand anything about
music!" Mahler was deeply hurt but undaunted. He did not abandon his artistic path, nor did his admiration for Biilow diminish. It is significant that he received the decisive impulse for the finale of his Symphony No. 2 at Billow's funeral in 1894, where Klopstock's Resurrection Ode was performed.
Totenfeier begins, according to Mahler's instructions, in a "very serious and solemn" mood, with a motif emphasizing two notes (the tonic and the fifth) over a mysterious accompaniment. Our expectations to see a more coherent theme develop are at first denied. The two-note figure persists in the bass even as the oboes come for?ward with a more extensive musical idea. The tension continues to build throughout this section; only the enchantingly beautiful second theme provides some relief.
The entire movement is governed by these two themes. The funeral march melody becomes ever more excited and tragic. Time and again, it is interrupted by the second theme that brings some hope, but it is never too long before the fierce pursuit resumes. At one point before the end of the development section, the horns begin to play a chorale-like melody. It is not an actual church hymn, yet, like many Lutheran chorales, it moves in small steps and notes of equal length. The function of such a melody here is to express faith and confidence in the midst of turmoil. The quasi-chorale, however, is suddenly, and brutally, silenced by a return of the march theme, more violent than ever before. At the climactic moment, the theme is reduced to its mere rhyth?mic shape. The tension rises to near-ecstasy; then, after an extremely harsh dissonance (the likes of which probably no one had written pre?viously), the simple bass motifs of the opening return as the recapitulation gets underway.
Symphony No. 9 in d minor
Anton Bruckner
Born on September 4, 1824 in Ansfelden,
Upper Austria Died on October 11, 1896 in Vienna
Bruckner planned to dedicate his Symphony No. 9 -which he knew would be his last -an den lieben Gott (to dear God). One can smile, if one wishes, at the childlike naivete of this devout Catholic from a small village who was often derided as a country bumpkin even after decades of residence in the imperial capital of Vienna. Yet the dedication to God is quite a serious matter. It is an indication that Bruckner's preoccupation with the eternal questions of life and death had become deeper than ever. The work itself differs in very important respects from Bruckner's other symphonies -a fact often missed by those who insist that Bruckner wrote the same symphony nine times over. The words of Robert Simpson, one of the most insightful analysts of the composer, bear quoting here:
[The music is] often dark to the pitch of blackness, and rent with such anguish as he had until now almost succeeded in keeping out of his music. There is tragedy in the first movement of the Eighth... the Fifth is a mightly battleground, but it is like some great classical fresco, and if we turn to the strange and compelling tonal conflicts of the last movement of the Sixth, we do not have the feeling that the composer is himself terri?fied by his own fantasies. But in the Ninth we sometimes receive this impression...in parts of the first movement and large tracts of the tormented "Adagio."
Nor does Simpson think that the last movement, had it been completed, would have exorcised that anguish. He finds it even in the sketches to the finale, and claims that Bruckner had not solved the enormous structural problems posed by the ending of this, the most monumental of his sym?phonies, at the time of his death.
Bruckner's anguish may have had something to do with his nagging feelings of insecurity as a composer. These feelings had been fueled by three or four years (1887-1891) spent largely with the revision of some of his earlier sym?phonies (Nos. 1, 2, 3 and 8) at the instigation of well-meaning but misguided disciples. The result was not only the vexing problem of multi?ple versions (where the later revisions do not necessarily represent improvements) but also a loss of precious time: it has been argued that, had Bruckner not spent four years of his life revising his earlier works, he probably would have been able to finish his Symphony No. 9.
As it stands, the gigantic three-movement torso serves, in its very incompleteness, as a stern reminder of the fragility of the human condi?tion. Of course, this message is borne out not only by the missing four movements, but also, and mainly, by the existing three -the tensely dramatic, "solemn-mysterious" opening, the eerie "Scherzo," and, to repeat Simpson's adjec?tive, the "tormented" "Adagio."
The work opens similarly to several other Bruckner symphonies -long measures of tremolos (rapid, "trembling" repeats of the same notes) and brief motivic fragments, inspired by the opening of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. The relationship is further reinforced here by the common key of d minor. As elsewhere, Bruckner makes short motives grow to tremen?dous climaxes, introduces a lyrical second and an austere third theme. Yet despite the presence of these and other trappings of sonata form, the twenty-minute movement is not organized along the lines of exposition, development (increasing complexity) and recapitulation (resolution). The real form, as Simpson has pointed out, can rather be understood as a massive and complex statement followed by an expanded counterstate-ment based on the same materials and, finally, a brief yet grandiose coda.
The "Scherzo" is unique among Bruckner's scherzos in the bold dissonances and tonal ambi?guities employed. Far from being a "joke" (the
original meaning of the word scherzo), it has been described by one commentator as "frenzied almost throughout, and by turns brutal and fan?tastic." Bruckner's trios (or scherzo middle sec?tions) are usually slower than the main sections; this one is much faster, set in the remote key of F-sharp Major, and characterized by an agility reminiscent of Mendelssohn yet with a dark, unsettling twist to it. In accordance with tradi?tion, the turbulent Scherzo is repeated in its entirety.
The E-Major "Adagio," nearly half an hour in length, is built upon two contrasting groups of themes. The first one is developed into the most chromatic and tonally unstable music Bruckner ever wrote: suspenseful tremolos and tortuous modulations, capped by a striking quote from Wagner's Parsifal, create an atmosphere full of dramatic tension. This contrasts with a cantabile (singing) melody in the violins that is much more traditional in the way it establishes a firm tonal footing before proceeding. The first and part of the second thematic group are repeated; but the climax of the movement arises from the other part of the second group (not previously recapitulated), soaring to unprecedented heights of expression. Originally calm and lyrical, this melody, too, becomes tense and menacing, before it melts into the ethereal coda (which incorporates quotes from Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 and Symphony No. 8).
The intense subjectivity and restlessness of the Symphony No. 9 makes it, in a way, the most "Mahlerian" of Bruckner's symphonies. It is startling to learn that Bruckner, when he realized that he might not be able to finish the finale, contemplated the possibility of using his Te Deum (1884) as the last movement. To be sure, this idea wouldn't really work, if only because of the C-Major tonality of the Te Deum which would be ill-matched to the d-minorE Major of the symphony. Yet the notion of Bruckner even thinking of bringing in the chorus for the finale of one of his symphonies, even as an emergency solution, is more than intriguing. After all, this
was the one aspect of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 that had never previously seemed to appeal to Bruckner; it was also the one that Mahler seized upon in his Symphony No. 2, written at the same time as Bruckner's Symphony No. 9. Still, for better or worse, we have to accept the ending of Bruckner's swan song in its present form, with its quiet E-Major chords played by the brass and a few plucked chords in the strings: for once, Bruckner achieved catharsis and transcendence entirely through introspection.

From 1983 to 1989, Mr. Chailly was principal conductor of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra, and from 1982 to 1985 served as principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra. From 1986 until 1993, he led the Teatro Comunale of Bologna where he directed many successful opera productions. In 1996, he made his debut at the Zurich Opera House with Verdi's (Trovatore.
Riccardo Chailly has an exclusive recording contract with DeccaLondon. He has recorded a broad repertoire on compact discs which have won many prizes, including two Edison Prizes, a Gramophone Award, a Diapason d'or, an Academy Charles Cros Award, the Japanese Ungalca no tomo Award, the Toblacher Komponier-hauschen and two Grammy nominations.
Riccardo Chailly
Since his appointment in 1988 as principal conductor of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Mr. Chailly has conducted -in addition to the symphonic repertoire which has earned the Orchestra its international reputation -a wealth of twentieth-century and avant-garde music that has attracted a fast-growing and enthusiastic public. He has scored additional triumphs in Amsterdam with his performances of (excerpts from) Verdi, Rossini and Leoncavallo operas in concert during the Christmas season matinees. His performances of Mahler's Symphony No. 1 and Symphony No. 8 were among the highlights of the Mahler Festival in May 1995. In addition, he has conducted the Orchestra during numerous tours to the most important European festivals (Salzburg, Lucerne, Wiener Festwochen, London Proms), and to Japan, Korea and China, as well as North and South America. He has also con?ducted productions of Verdi's Falstaff and Otello with the Dutch Opera.
In addition to his activities with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Riccardo Chailly appears frequently with the world's leading symphony orchestras. As an opera conductor, he regularly performs at the Milan, Amsterdam and Zurich opera houses.
Riccardo Chailly was honored in 1994 with the Grand' Ufficiale della Repubblica Italia, and was made an honorary member of the Royal Academy of Music in London in 1996.
This performance marks Riccardo Chailly's second appearance under UMS auspices.
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra Amsterdam is widely acknowledged as one of the world's premier symphonic ensembles. Since its first performance in 1888 in the acoustically acclaimed Concertgebouw (Concert Building) from which it takes its name and where it performs to this day, the Orchestra has sustained a tradition of the highest artistic achievement that has earned the esteem of musicians, critics and audiences worldwide. Following a succes?sion of distinguished predecessors: Willem Kes (1888-95), Willem Mengelberg (1895-1945), Eduard van Beinum (1945-59), and Bernard Haitink (1959-88), Italian-born Riccardo Chailly became the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's fifth Chief Conductor in 1988.
Throughout its history, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has been especially renowned for its performances of late nineteenth century and post-Romantic works, including the music of Brahms, Mahler, Bruckner and Richard Strauss. In addition, the Orchestra has been hailed for its unique sound, especially the warmth of the strings and the distinctive timbre of the woodwinds. Its reputation for meticulous prepa?ration and broad musical understanding has attracted the attention of illustrious composers, many of whom have conducted the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in performances of their own works. They include Richard Strauss, who dedicated Ein Heldenleben to the Orchestra; Mahler, who was a regular guest conductor in Amsterdam; Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, Schoenberg, Hindemith and Milhaud. In addi?tion, the orchestra has performed under the direction of many of this century's leading con?ductors, including Fritz Busch, Sir Adrian Boult, Erich Kleiber, Karl Muck, Bruno Walter, George Szell, Pierre Monteux and Rafael Kubelik, the last three on a regular basis for more than a quarter of a century each.
Under the leadership of Riccardo Chailly, a passionate advocate of twentieth-century music, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has main-
tained these valued traditions while broadening its repertoire and renewing its historical commit?ment to the performance of contemporary works. Mr. Chailly and the Orchestra have made more than forty-five recordings together, and have toured extensively to major European music festivals including Salzburg, the London Proms, Vienna, Berlin and Lucerne, as well as to North America and the Far East. Their performances have been widely praised for their explosive emotional impact and remarkable rhythmic pre?cision, as well as for the Orchestra's transparent sound and the exceptional artistry of its first-chair players.
Few ensembles have developed such a rich recorded legacy: the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has made more than 1,000 recordings, led by its music directors and other prominent conductors. Many of these recordings, some dating back to the 1920s, are still in the active catalogue and have been reissued on compact disc. The Orchestra currently maintains an active recording schedule, making new recordings each year with Mr. Chailly and leading guest conductors. Its rapidly expanding discography with Mr. Chailly on the LondonDecca label, for which he is an exclusive recording artist, includes symphonies of Brahms, Bruckner, Dvorak, Mahler, Schumann and Tchaikovsky, as well as a broad spectrum of twentieth-century works ranging from Debussy to Berio. Among their prize-winning disks are Hindemith's Kammermusik, which was named "Best Orchestral Recording of the Year" by Gramophone magazine, and Messiaen's Turangalila-Symphonie, which received the 1993 Diapason d'or and the Edison Award for "Best Symphonic Recording."
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's newest recordings with Mr. Chailly are Zemlinsky's Eine florentinische Tragodie, Stravinsky's Firebird Suite, Apollon musagete and Scherzo fantastique, and Mahler's Symphony No. 5. Other recent record?ings include Zemlinsky's Lyric Symphony and Symphonic Songs, a Stravinsky disc that includes Petrouchka and Pulcinella, and a recording of Bruckner's Symphony No. 9.
The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's February 1998 tour, its twelfth trip to North America, includes this Ann Arbor performance, three performances at New York's Avery Fisher Hall and concerts in Toronto, Champaign, Chicago and Newark. In addition, the Orchestra appears this season in Europe at the Lucerne and Bergen Festivals, the London Proms, and in Brussels, Paris, Madrid, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Vienna and Lisbon. In 1996, the Foundation of American Friends of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra was established, with Ambassador William J. vanden Heuvel as President.
This performance marks the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra's fifth appearance under UMS auspices.

Juan-Jose Mosalini and His Grand Orchestra de Tango
An orquestra tipica de tango (literally a typical tango orchestra) evokes the romantic, fading, sepia-toned images of the tango era's symphonic orchestras and big bands. Made up of strings, piano, and the quintessential tango instrument the bandoneones (a bitter?sweet sounding button squeezebox) the orquestra tipica has a distinct sound; rich, intense, both streetwise and regal, muscular and elegant.
Juan-Jose Mosalini has had quite an extra?ordinary career. He was born in Buenos Aires on November 29, 1943 and learned to play the ban-doneon in the great days of tango from his father, who also played trombone in a military band. Mosalini started playing professionally at the age of thirteen when a neighborhood band leader heard him practicing and hired him on the spot. At eighteen, he won first prize as a ban-doneon player on a television program called Nace Una Estrella (A Star is Born) and signed a six-month contract with the station's house orchestra. This exposure catapulted his career and he was soon playing with the orchestras of Jorge Dragone, Horacio Salgan, Ferico Basso, and Osvaldo Pugliese. He soon accompanied such
premier singers as Argentino Ledesama and Roberto Goyeneche.
Mosalini continued playing both traditional and contemporary styles throughout the early 1970s to some great acclaim, but was forced to move out of the country when the vio?lence of the floundering political situation con?sumed Argentinean life. He went on to organize Tango Argentino in Paris, and later joined a trio that included French bass player
Patrice Caratini. This group stayed together for eleven years and released three albums; La Bordona (1983), Imageries (1987), and Violento (1990).
In 1985, Mosalini wrote the bandoneon method that helped elevate the instrument to legitimacy in the French conservatory system. He was then invited to start the first official ban?doneon class in the country. Incidentally, his teaching position lead to the organization of his own orchestra in 1992. "The idea of the orches?tra was not mine actually but Bernard Cavanna, the Director of the school," says Mosalini. "He is a very curious person and always asked me to play him tango records. One day I played him Pugliese and Salgan, and when he heard the sound of the orquestra tipka he was stunned and asked me, 'why not put an orquestra tipka together' I was moved. Here's this guy who has no obligation to this music pushing me to do this, so I thought I should do it."
Mosalini assembled an orquestra tipka com?prised of three bandoneones, four violins, viola, cello, bass, and piano. "I just wanted to get back the sonorities of the orchestra -the strings with the bandoneones, bass and piano. It's such a great sound." We hope you agree.
77iis performance marks Juan-Jose Mosalini's debut under UMS auspices.
