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 ( 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

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?missioning 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.
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
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:
Master of Arts Interview Series
In collaboration with Michigan Radio WUOM WFUMWVGR, the Institute for the Humanities, and the Institute for Research on Women and Gender, UMS presents a series of informal and engaging dialogues with UMS Artists.
The American String Quartet will be interviewed in conjunction with the Beethoven the Contemporary Series and will discuss their commitment to contemporary classical music and its future.
MacArthur "Genius" grant winner Elizabeth Streb discusses her unique choreographic vision with UMS' Director of Education and Audience Development, Ben Johnson.
Terri Sarris and Gaylyn Studlar, U-M Film
and Video Studies, will interview filmmaker Ngozi Onwurah, Artist in Residence for the Institute for the Humanities and the Paula and Edwin Sidman Fellow in the Arts.
PREPs (Performance-Related Educational Presentations)
Attend lectures and demonstrations that sur?round UMS events. PREPs are given by local and national experts in their field, and some highlights include:
Richard LeSueur, Vocal Arts Information Services, will conduct PREPs on vocal music before David Daniels, Susanne Mentzer, and the New York City Opera National Company.

About "REAL ACTION": It is dan?gerous. It is unpredictable. It is spontaneous. It is chaotic. It never does anything it doesn't need to do. It is patterned. It is repetitive. It is small, large, slow, fast, directional, explosive, and loud. Movement has illusive, invisible forces that are causal and deterministic. Forces generated by physical action demand to exist out of control. Timing is emergent, it cannot honestly be adjusted, only artificially manipulated. STREB's timing law is: "You do the move in as much time as it takes your body to do the move, no more no less."
As a technique, it attempts to: rob the floor of its hegemony, isolate the direction UP, pop the muscles to initiate action, not manipulate the skeleton, have more than one body in the same space at the same time, show the effect of action on substance, humanly execute a "real move" without dying, occupy unhabitual places in space, traverse foreign topographies, stay out of human comfort zones, develop temporal physical structures, not aural ones, subjec-tize action, not the body, and fly.
STREB is a platform for the investiga?tion of movement, an attempt to expose movement, an attempt to expose move?ment's true nature by harnessing it, without debilitating it, within a confined space. STREB isolates the basic principles of time, space and human movement potential.
The dancers of STREB contribute to the development of methods which prepare the body to execute the moves required by the dances. They are the method innovators. This is achieved by the development of spe?cific muscles, the unhabitual occupation of space, the exploration of millisecond timing, the unusual placement of body parts, air aim, the continuous development of felt-timing and the harnessing of the invisi?ble forces of movement such as impact, rebound, momentum, cohesion, adhesion, centrifugal force and inertia.
Former STREB dancers whose contri?butions and movements live on in our hearts, bodies and minds, and continue to inform our actions: Michael Schwartz, Diann Sichell, Joseph Arias, Daniel Macintosh, Nancy Alfaro, Jane Setteducatto, Henry Beer, Peter Larose, Jorge Collazo, Gary Lutes, Brian Levy, Katrina Birchfield, John Landes, Paula Gifford, Mark Robison, Christopher Batenhorst, Soldanela Rivera, Ned Malouf, Adolpho Pati, Christine Knight, Liam Clancy, Guadalupe Martinez, Alma Largey, and Jason Jaworski.

A duel with centrifugal force. A dancer is harnessed into a giant lever balanced by 400 pounds of counter weight which render her almost weightless. An idea that all of the encircled space is available, but only at certain times. A combination thrill ride and physics lesson.

Five dancers occupy and deoccupy an upright wall in any num?ber of unlikely combinations in this blend of several classic STREB wall pieces, including WALL, LINE, SPACEHOLD and IMPACT.
Elizabeth StrebLisa Dalton
Streb's signature solo in which a dancer inhabits a horizontal box just big enough to contain her and, within its boundaries, tests the limits and idea of available space.
The Company
Seven dancers converge on an eight foot square sprung floor and, like angels on the head of a pin, attempt to occupy every particle of its surface simultaneously by hurtling over, under, around and through each other.
The Company
A perfect line dive through a piece of glass to demonstrate the effect of action on substance.

Christine McQuade Eli McAfee Lisa Dalton
Three harnessed dancers descend a twenty-foot, square wall exe?cuting STREB moves caught in the inevitability of the arc and the pendulum. With the wall as their base the dancers make the audience question just where is level ground.

Using an Olympic Australian "hot bed" trampoline, six dancers hurl themselves onto its surface from tall scaffold towers. The force of the trampoline allows the dancers to spend extravagant amounts of time in mid-air, using the trampoline below and two parallel bars above as their launch points in pursuit of iso?lating Elizabeth Streb's favorite direction: up!
Major support for the creation of UP was provided by the Wexner Center for the Arts at The Ohio State University through its Wexner Center Residency Award program funded by the Wexner Center Foundation. The choreography, sound design and lighting design for UP were completed during a three-week creative residency at the Wexner Center for the Arts.
Elizabeth Streb and Company Audience Interaction.
STREB was founded in 1985. In its eleven-year history, the company has been presented at The Joyce Theater, The Serious Fun! festival at Lincoln Center, The Spoleto FestivalUSA, The Kitchen, Walker Art Center, Festival International de la Nouvelle Danse de Montreal, Wiener Internationales Tanz Festival, and Academy der Kunst in Berlin. STREB's work is adaptable to alterna?tive performance spaces, and the company has performed on the boardwalk of Coney Island, on the mall outside the Smithsonian Institution, during a Minneapolis Twins and New York Yankees game at the Minneapolis Metrodome, at the Wintergarden in New York City during intermission of the International Squash Tournament Finals, at the State of Illinois Center in Chicago, and as a regular filler on MTV. Elizabeth Streb and three company members have received "Bessie" Awards acknowledging their extra?ordinary artistry.
In 1995-1996, STREB was one of the ten companies selected to receive The National Dance Residency program from the New York Foundation for the Arts, sponsored by The Pew Charitable Trust and supporting the development of their cre?ative work. They have also received a three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and a major grant from Dance on Tour, sponsored by the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund to support their first US tour produced by International Production Associates.
This performance marks STREB's VMS debut.
Elizabeth Streb graduated from SUNY Brockport in 1972 with a degree cum laude in Modern Dance. She moved to San Francisco and danced with Margaret Jenkins from 1972 to 1973. Her other teachers include Viola Farber, Diana Byer, Janet Paneta, Jocelyn Lorenz, June Finch and Daniel Nagrin. Her inspiration in dance comes from Merce Cunningham, Lucinda Childs, Trisha Brown, and in movement from boxing, the circus, the rodeo and unprescribed and accidental action that happens everywhere. She has been present?ing ACTION work in New York since 1979 and formed STREB (formerly known as StrebRingside) in 1985. Her choreography is singular in the ways she stretches the defi?nitions, the contexts and the very structure of dance. Her early interest in sports and gymnastics is evident in the extraordinary athleticism of her dancers, but her aesthetic interests are in the investigation of the radi?cals of movement, the tension between voli?tion and gravity imposed by structures which are at once physically confining and liberating.
Ms. Streb has traveled abroad to host workshops at the Theatre Contemporain de la Danse in Paris, and to mount STREB repertory on the Batsheva Dance Company in Tel Aviv, Israel. With video artists, Mary Lucier and Michael Schwartz, she has worked on several projects which have aired nationally on the PBS series Alive From Off-Center, and New Television. For the past nine years, Elizabeth Streb has been on fac?ulty at the Harvard Summer Dance Center. She has taught and given lecturedemon?strations at colleges and universities across the country including Princeton, Oberlin, Sarah Lawrence, and Cornell. She received a three year fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts, a 1991 Brandeis University Creative Arts Award, a 1989 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation
Fellowship and a 1988 New York Dance and Performance Bessie Award for her sustained investigation of movement. In 1997 Elizabeth Streb was awarded a John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation Fellowship.
Hope Clark studied ballet, gymnastics, and modern dance as a child in Washington DC. She attended the American Dance Festival in 1981 and graduated from Bennington College with a BA in Dance Performance and Choreography in 1987. She was doing experimental theater, making dances and working in a Maximum Security Prison before joining STREB in 1991. Since 1993 she has directed KIDACTION, a program that works with children on STREB tech?niques, making dances and performing them with the company. Nickelodeon did a show on KIDACTION in 1995, and KIDACTION dances have been performed in cities across the US and in England. In 1996, Hope became Associate Artistic Director for STREB. Other projects include Assistant Director for Ann Carlson's Mirage Project at the Anchorage, and choreograph?er for female body builders in Evolution F, a Laurie Feirstein production. She was an artist-in-residence at Williams College in the fall of 1996 and currently teaches gym?nastics to Physical Education majors at Hunter College in New York.
Matthew Stromberg, originally from Berkeley, CA, arrived in New York four years ago to complete a Masters degree in Anthropology. He credits his interest in dance to Martha Myers, who insisted that Matthew accept her invitation to the American Dance Festival while an under-grad at Connecticut College. As a dancer Matthew has performed with OnSite Dance Company in San Francisco, Joy Kellman and company and Nicholas Leichter Dance among others, and was a dancer in residence at The Yard in Martha's Vineyard in 1996.
A former competitive swimmer, and always one to seek out a physical challenge, Matthew came to STREB in December 1995 to have fun.
Albert Elmore Jr. attended Ballou High School in Washington DC. While there he participated in the "City at Peace," for two years and was part of the production team during its presentations. Under the guidance of the Artistic Director Paul Griffin and tutelage of Sandra L. Holloway, a DC chore?ographer, Junior became interested in dance and theater. Junior began his physical training in football as a running back and wide receiver. He also spent time on the courts as a point guard in basketball. Junior first saw STREB in December 1995 and fell in love and was lucky to meet Elizabeth and began working with the Company in April of 1996. Junior would like to dedicate his performances to his family, "City at Peace" and STREB.
Lisa Dalton is a native of Fort Worth, Texas. She studied as a scholarship student at the Alvin Ailey School of Dance and The American Dance Festival. She has trained with such influential teachers as Chuck Davis, Betty Jones, Don Redlich, Lucas Hoving, and Ernestine Stodelle. Ms. Dalton was a founding member of Dendy Dance and first performed with the company in 1984. She created the role of Maggie in Pilobolus Dance Theater's The Golden Bowl, and toured throughout the United States and South America with the company from 1987 to 1989. In 1990 Ms. Dalton appeared in Martha Clarke's Endangered Species at the Majestic Theater in Brooklyn, NY. In 1995 she was a featured performer in the Los Angeles Opera production of Der Fliegender Hollander directed by Julie Taymor. Lisa co-founded Dalton-Hartel Dance with Austin Hartel in 1989. They have toured their evening of solos and duets throughout the
United States including Hawaii, in Italy, Switzerland, Holland, Korea, The Northern Marianne Islands in Micronesia, and South America. Ms. Dalton is currently a student of Mr. Robert Fitzgerald in NY. She joined STREB in 1996.
Sheila Carreras Brandson received a BFA in Dance from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana. Before joining STREB in 1996, she danced with Bill Cratty Dance Theatre, Geulah Abrahams Danceworks, Chen & Dancers, and several independent choreographers. Sheila currently teaches tumbling at the Dance Studio of Park Slope in Brooklyn. She has recently been certified as a personal trainer through the American Council on Exercise, and continues to study yoga, dance and gynmastics.
Eli McAfee started dancing at age eighteen while studying acting at Illinois Wesleyan University, where he received his BFA in Theater in 1993. Eli completed a masters degree in Dance from Ohio State University in 1995, At OSU he performed works by Merce Cunningham, Donald McKayle, David Parsons and Victoria Uris. Most recently Eli appeared in Ain and David Gordon's production of The First Picture Show. This is Eli's second season with STREB.
Christine McQuade began her dance train?ing at UC Berkeley, where Marni Wood, Carol Murota, and Christopher Dolder inspired her to become involved in modern dance. Her training has also been shaped by Margaret Jenkins as well as numerous facul?ty at the American Dance Festival. She per?formed as a member of Bay Area Repertory Dance for two years, and after graduating from Berkeley with a BA in history, Christine returned to New York to pursue dancing.

Tonight's program is certainly one of the most unusual to be presented to any audience. One observes imme?diately what a large serving of unfa?miliar music it offers. Upon further examination, one sees how it high?lights and focuses upon two periods of composition only. The huge outpouring of romantic songs and arias which every European culture produced during the bulk of the nineteeth century is tonight surpris?ingly absent. We need not feel shortchanged however, for in exchange we have gems from the pens of four composers with whom we should be better acquainted if we are to call ourselves true devotees of vocal music.
The first half of Ms. Mentzer's program proceeds chronologically and is limited to the forty-year period, 1750-1790. Handel was in his last years as this period begins, and Mozart's birth was only a few years away. Gluck's fame rests primarily on his role as a reformer of opera's excesses. As his life proceeded he worked tirelessly to aban?don gratuitous ornament and needless dec?oration. On this very series of concerts this season, arias from his operas Orfeo and Paride ed Elena have clearly demonstrated Gluck's preoccupation with the power which simplicity of expression can create in the opera house. Tonight we hear a different sort of Gluck. The tragic story of Semiramide was the opera with which Gluck chose to make his Viennese debut; the florid music here is fully two decades earlier than his famous reforms to come. Our concert's opening aria is a graceful minuet in an abridged a-b-a form and typifies the serious opera of the time. The following four pieces of Gluck are not for the theatre; rather they typify "housemusic" of the time. They are all for keyboard accompaniment only and are inspired by verses of the great philosopher-theologian-poet Friedrich Klopstock. Two of the songs feature poetic strophes to the same music, one is again in a-b-a form as
was the Italian aria, and the Ode to Death is not a song at all, but a rhapsodic declama?tion with no unifying form. In all of these pieces, the piano is not allowed an identity of its own; it simply doubles the voice's melody. This is true of all the songs of this half-century, and even such inventive geniuses as Haydn, Mozart, and C.P.E. Bach conformed to this very modest model. It took another thirty years and Franz Schubert to create what we think of today as a song, but it can be fascinating from our perspective to hear the potential for adventure yet to come.
Haydn's grand cantata for voice and keyboard was written only four years after the songs just described. Its italianate musical style, however, is as different from Gluck's germanic models as Mozart's Figaro is from his own Magic Flute. Haydn was one of Italian opera's masters despite his own nationality and place of residence. The sequence of recitative.. .aria.. .recitative... aria...finale which forms this dramatic scene could easily fit into any of Haydn's eighteen works for the theatre, or indeed any serious Italian opera of Mozart. The fact that the accompaniment is originally for keyboard is in no way different from the role of the orchestra in any operatic aria of the time. The myth of Ariadne has attracted composers since the dawn of opera. Indeed, Haydn's treatment of the story is in a long line of Monteverdi, Roussel, Pacini, Strauss and countless others. Having saved Theseus from the infamous Cretan labyrinth's cer?tain death, Ariadne joyously sails with him to Naxos. He abandons her as she sleeps, however, and this cantata begins with her awakening and her realization that she is utterly alone and betrayed. In Haydn's ver?sion, rescue is denied her, and we do not know her end. The three arias are marvelous outpourings of melody, but it is in the two extended recitatives where Haydn's dramatic genius is so clearly heard. Wind, waves, sun?rise, hope, confusion, alarm are all clearly
painted for us by both voice and piano, and we are thus plunged with Ariadne into hopelessness, anger and despair.
The works now leap forward nearly a century for the second half of this evening's recital. Henri Duparc's name is known best in vocal circles, and his not inconsiderable fame is based exclusively on sixteen songs, making him surely the least prolific of com?posers. Poor Duparc lived fifty years after his last song was completed, but was unable to compose any further due to a debilitating illness and the depression it engendered. The two songs heard tonight are quite early in his output (1868-69), but in quite diverse ways they show his gift for melody, harmon?ic manipulation, and orchestral color at the piano. These trademarks were to remain firmly in place throughout all his works. Chanson triste is such a song of hope and optimism that its title must be regarded as a misnomer. The singer could be playing her own harp as she thanks her beloved for all he has given her. The much longer Au pays is a true dramatic ballad, one that conjures up the age of the Crusades, chivalry, and women pacing castle ramparts awaiting a knight's return. Despite her passionate out?pourings, almost nothing has changed for the singer at the ballad's end.
"French music is Bizet, Chabrier, and Satie." Stravinsky's opinion is quoted often and yet it remains surprising that the names of Berlioz, Gounod, Debussy and Ravel are absent. Eric Satie was a close friend of Debussy's; Ravel and Poulenc both acknowl?edged Satie's influence on their work. Like Duparc, Satie was not particularly prolific, and insisted that music have an elevated and pure sense of poetry. In one sense, this evening's program ends as it began, for Satie's music is of almost archaic simplicity and modesty, reminiscent of Gluck's econo?my. The three little songs of 1916 show Satie as his most minimal and witty self. The bronze statue of a frog is a early predecessor
of a pinball machine; each chamber in the statue is worth a certain score, and her mouth seems eternally open. The dialogue in the second song depends on the device of liaison in French poetry for its humor: "un noisetier" and "un oisetier" sound identical but only one is a real word. In the third vignette, Satie borrows a melody from a Gounod opera to create the nonsense of the Mad Hatter. The other three songs come from a much earlier period in Satie's life, a period in which cabaret songs were his sole method of paying his bills. Here the chic elegance and understatement of a 1901 nightclub mingle with the ritual of the con?cert hall. Satie struggled vainly until 1917 when the triumvirate of Cocteau, Diaghilev and Picasso catapulted him to a prestigious position in the world of French music where he has remained ever since, a discerning composer for discerning tastes.

Sonata No. 28 in A Major, Op. 101
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born on December 15 or 16, 1770 in
Bonn, Germany Died on March 26,1827 in Vienna
Like his late string quartets, Beethoven's last five piano sonatas occupy a special place in his output, and along with the Symphony No. 9 and the Missa Solemnis, constitute what we normally call Beethoven's late period. Beethoven's previous period, the so-called "heroic" period, had ended by 1812, and was followed by several years during which Beethoven composed very little music (his declining health and his protracted law suit over his nephew's custody have been cited as the main reasons). In 1816, Beethoven fin?ished only the song cycle An die feme Geliebte (To the Distant Beloved) and the Piano Sonata Op. 101, but the latter piece proved to be the starting point for a new burst of compositional activity during Beethoven's last decade.
Musicologist Joseph Kerman writes about the opening movement of the A-Major sonata: "It begins quietly on the dominant as though the music were already in progress: an almost Schumannesque effect." For his part, Maynard Solomon stresses that "the work is similar in design to the fantasy sonatas of earlier years," referring to the two sonatas Op. 27 (the second of which is the famous "Moonlight," from 1800-01). It is true that Beethoven had experimented with unusual movement sequences earlier, yet the sensitivity of the harmonies and the calm poise of the music are unprecedented in the sonatas, as is the combination of a relatively fast tempo with a distinct slow-movement feel. The second movement is a lively "Alia Marcia" with quite a few surprises, harmon?ic and otherwise. It includes a mysterious Trio which gradually leads back into the recapitulation of the march.
A brief Adagio follows, played una corda (with the left pedal, which causes only one string to be struck by the hammer, out of the three that are attached to each note). Intensely lyrical and melodious, it is soon interrupted by a cadenza that leads, through a brief recall of the first movement's open?ing theme, to the massive finale, which Solomon called the climax of the entire work. A short and pithy idea is developed in a multitude of different ways, including an extensive fugue -one of many that appear in Beethoven's late works. In the case of the A-Major sonata, the fugue functions as the central development section of a sonata form, which ends with a dramatic and bril?liant coda.
This sonata was dedicated to the Baroness Dorothea Ertmann, an outstand?ing pianist and former pupil of Beethoven's, who was one of the best interpreters of Beethoven's piano works during the com?poser's lifetime. Beethoven called her his "Dorothea-Cacilia," naming her after the patron saint of music. Anton Schindler, Beethoven's assistant, called her "a conserva?tory all by herself." Her husband, who served in the army, eventually became a General and was transferred to Milan, where in 1831 she received the young Felix Mendelssohn and played Beethoven's sonatas for him the way she had learned them from the composer.
Four Pieces, Op. 119
Johannes Brahms
Born on May 7, 1833 in Hamburg
Died on April 3, 1897 in Vienna
Brahms wrote most of his works for solo piano either very early or very late in his career (with only the Eight Piano Pieces, Op. 76 and the Two Rhapsodies, Op. 79 falling into his middle years). In the early works, which include the three great sonatas and
several sets of brilliant variations, he made the classical piano tradition thoroughly his own and established his reputation as the heir to Beethoven's mantle. In the late piano music, written in the 1890s, Brahms aimed at something far more personal: the pieces convey an image of the composer with?drawn from the world and playing to him?self or a few of his closest friends such as Clara Schumann. Most of the twenty short pieces published as Opp. 116-119 are lyrical and introspective in character, many of them are called "intermezzos" not because they come between two larger works but because the name connotes something light, transient, and indefinite. Some of the pieces, like the more energetic Ballade, Op. 118, No. 3 and Rhapsody Op. 119, No. 4, hark back to the earlier Brahms, but even they have a cer?tain autumnal quality about them.
In Op. 119, the final Rhapsody is pre?ceded by three intermezzos. The dreamy first intermezzo, in b minor, has a sustained slow motion going all the way through; the second, in e minor, is "un poco agitato" with a tenderly lyrical E-Major middle section, and the third, in C Major, begins like a gen?tle lullaby (with the melody in the middle voice) though it becomes more grandiose as it evolves. The Rhapsody takes the form of a Rondo, with a muscular main theme and more graceful episodes. Its main key is E-flat Major, but surprisingly, it ends with a dramatic outburst in e-flat minor; works in minor keys often end in the Major, but the reverse is much less frequent.
Sonata in b minor
Franz Liszt
Born on October 22, 1811 in Doborjan,
Hungary (now Raiding, Austria) Died on July 31, 1886 in Bayreuth, Germany
Among the great composers of the nine?teenth century, few had to contend with
such antagonistic impulses within them?selves as did Franz Liszt. Quite possibly the greatest virtuoso pianist of the century, Liszt also aspired to be a revolutionary composer and gave up public concertizing at the height of his success. Later, his religious feel?ings compelled him to take holy orders while at the same time continuing to com?pose and teach. A native of Hungary who identified strongly with the country even though he did not speak its language, he remained a lifelong wanderer, sojourning at various times in Paris, Geneva, Weimar, Rome, and Budapest, at home everywhere and nowhere.
In his monumental Sonata for piano, Liszt managed to reconcile many of these conflicting tendencies and create a work that was revolutionary in design, virtuosic in execution, and deeply spiritual in con?tent. As in his cycle of symphonic poems written around the same time, Liszt united all the different characters of the multi-movement sonata or symphonic form in a single movement of extended proportions. The recurrence of a number of fundamental themes guaranteed organic unity while the contrasting tempos and characters provided diversity.
The Sonata opens hesitatingly, with a slow descending scale that will become one of the recurrent elements throughout the work. The heroic main theme soon follows; its brilliant development leads into a melody marked "grandioso" (a hymn-like tune accompanied by massive blocks of chords). In the first of several dramatic shifts, the music turns from heroic to introspective and lyrical, yet the melodic material is the same as before (the difference is mainly in tempo, dynamics, and accompaniment). These two fundamental characters continue to alternate throughout the rest of the piece, but each character is further enriched and developed with each new recurrence. On the dramatic side, we hear a set of brilliant vari-
ations on the main theme, interrupted by the powerful "grandioso" motive. A doleful recitative calls into question the heroism of the entire passage, and the music gradually calms down to an "Andante sostenuto" with an aria-like new theme. The mood, however, soon becomes more passionate, and the heroic theme returns in yet another incar?nation, as a fugue, with a countersubject consisting of rapid, short notes that give it a slightly satirical edge. This section, which incorporates the descending scales of the introduction, leads to a re-statement of the "grandioso" motive, even more powerful than before. At the end of a breath-taking stretta (final section in a faster tempo), the "grandioso" theme returns yet another time, as the emotional high point of the entire work. But the final word belongs to the lyri?cal-introspective character in the drama: the "Andante sostenuto" aria is recalled, followed by an extremely quiet restatement of the main theme, as if to suggest that the fight is over. The descending scales from the opening are heard again, followed by a few ethereal chords. After what seemed like a voyage through a whole pianistic and emotional universe, the last note is a single, barely audible, short B in the extreme low register of the piano.
Liszt dedicated his sonata to Robert Schumann, who years earlier, had dedicated his Fantasy in C Major to Liszt. By the time of this belated response, the relations of the two men had cooled, and the dedication, as one commentator put it, "was received with embarrassment." Yet neither dedication was a coincidence: both works being crucially important in the respective composers' oeuvres, it is understandable that they should have been chosen to honor a distinguished colleague.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Evgeny Kissin was born in Moscow in October 1971 and began to play and improvise on the piano at age two. At the age of six, he entered the Moscow Gnessin School of Music for Gifted Children where he was a student of Anna Pavlovna Kantor, with whom he continues his studies today. He gave his first solo recital in Moscow at age eleven and came to international atten?tion in March 1984 when, at age twelve, he performed the two Chopin Concerti in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory with the Moscow State Philharmonic, under the direction of Dmitri Kitaenko. He has since performed throughout the former Soviet Union with the Leningrad Philharmonic, the Orchestra of Soviet TV and Radio and the State Symphony Orchestra of the USSR, under such conduc?tors as Evgeny Svetlanov and Yuri Temirkanov. In 1997, he returned for the first time since 1990 to receive the highest cultural honor in the Russian Republic, the Triumph Prize, and to perform two solo recitals in Moscow.
The first appearances Mr. Kissin gave outside Russia occurred in 1985, when he performed in East Berlin and Budapest. He made his first tour of Japan in October 1986 and has since returned regularly. Mr. Kissin made his debut in Western Europe in 1987 at the Berlin Festival and has concertized widely throughout Europe to sold-out hous?es. In August of 1997, he performed the first solo recital in the 103-year history of the Proms at the Royal Albert Hall in London. Mr. Kissin's first appearances in the US took place in the fall of 1990 when, within ten days, he performed the two Chopin con?certos with the New York Philharmonic under the baton of Zubin Mehta and gave the first recital of Carnegie Hall's centenary season. His sold-out Carnegie Hall recital debut was recorded live for RCA Red Seal and was subsequently nominated for a
Grammy Award. On October 5, 1995, Mr. Kissin opened the Carnegie Hall season as soloist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra and Seiji Ozawa. The perfor?mance was telecast nationwide on PBS's Great Performances.
Other televised appearances include a December 31, 1988 debut with the Berlin Philharmonic and Herbert von Karajan in the Tchaikovsky Concerto, and Beethoven's Choral Fantasy with the Berlin Philharmonic and Claudio Abbado on December 31,1991. Mr. Kissin was seen by an estimated 1.8 billion people in eighty-seven countries when he performed live at the Grammy Award ceremonies on February 25,1992.
Evgeny Kissin has received extra?ordinary acclaim for his numer?ous recordings, among them the Schumann Concerto with the Vienna Philharmonic and Carlo Maria Giulini and the Beethoven Piano Concerti Nos. 2 & 5 with the Philharmonia Orchestra and James Levine (Sony Classical), Prokofiev Concertos Nos. 1 and 3 with the Berlin Philharmonic and Claudio Abbado (Deutsche Grammophon), and Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 3 with the Boston Symphony and Seiji Ozawa (RCA VictorRed Seal). Other recent recordings on the RCA VictorRed Seal label include Schumann's Fantasy in C Major and a collection of Liszt's Transcendental Etudes, and a re-release of the legendary 1984 Moscow performance of the Chopin concertos, which first brought Evgeny Kissin to public attention.
Highlights of this season include this Ann Arbor recital and recitals in Miami, Chicago, Washington, D.C., and New York, as well as a performance at Carnegie Hall with the MET Orchestra and James Levine. Mr. Kissin's upcoming inter?national schedule includes concerts with James Levine and the Berlin Philharmonic, Lorin Maazel and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and recitals in London, Paris, Berlin, Hamburg, Munich and Vienna.
This performance marks Evgeny Kissin's UMS debut.

A Sound Investment
Advertising and Sponsorship at UMS
Advertising in the UMS program book or sponsoring UMS performances will enable you to reach 125,000 of southeastern Michigan's most loyal concertgoers. j
When you advertise in the UMS program book you gain season-long visibility, while enabling an important tradition of providing audiences with the detailed program notes, artist biographies, and program descriptions that are so important to per?formance experiences. Call 734.647.4020 to learn how your business can benefit from advertising in the UMS program book.
As a UMS corporate sponsor, your organization comes to the attention of an affluent, educated, and growing segment of not only Ann Arbor, but all of southeastern Michigan.

groups Making highly visible links with arts and
education programs Recognizing employees Showing appreciation for loyal customers

Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee is a 53-member organi?zation which raises funds for UMS through a variety of events held throughout the concert season: an annual auction, the creative "Delicious Experience" dinners, season opening and preand post-concert events, and the Ford Honors Program Gala Dinner Dance. The Advisory Committee has pledged to donate $140,000 this current season. In addition to fundraising, this hard-working group generously donates valuable and innumerable hours in assisting with the educational programs of UMS and the behind-the-scenes tasks associated with every event UMS presents. If you would like to become involved with this dynamic group, please give us a call at 734.936.6837 for information.

Thanks to Ford Motor Company for the use of a Lincoln Town Car to provide transportation for visiting artists.
Ford Honors Program
The Ford Honors program is made possible by a generous grant from the Ford Motor Company and benefits the UMS Education Program. Each year, UMS honors a world-renowned artist or ensemble with whom we have maintained a long-standing and significant relationship. In one evening, UMS presents the artist in concert, pays tribute to and presents the artist with the UMS Distinguished Artist Award, and hosts a dinner and party in the artist's honor. Van Cliburn was the first artist so honored and in 1997 UMS honored Jessye Norman.
This year's Ford Honors Program will be held Saturday, May 9. The recipient of the 1998 UMS Distinguished Artist Award will be announced in early February.
