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.

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
Hill Auditorium
study or 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.

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:

$ UMS is writing a cookbook--and not just any ordinary cookbook. This one will feature the favorite recipes of UMS artists past and present. It will also include photos, quotes, reminiscences, and perhaps--just perhaps--a recipe and anecdote from you. Maybe it's the soup you always serve your family the night of UMS performances. Maybe it's the souffle that was such a big hit at the Delicious Experience dinner you hosted. Maybe it's the pasta dish you created after meeting Cecilia Bartoli at an artist's recep?tion. If you have a much-loved recipe with some tie to UMS events, we'd like to hear about it...along with the accompanying story. f" Submissions should be addressed to: Cookbook Editor, UMS Development, Burton Memorial Tower, 881 N. University Avenue, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48109-1011.

Luz y Worte (Madrid ism
A Lantern and Guiding Star, by which one may walk through the music of the Spanish Guitar and Harp...with a brief Exposition of the Art.
The title of Lucas Ruiz de Ribayaz y Fonceu's collection of Spanish, Italian, South American and African dance-music evokes the spirit of exploration and enlightenment as well as a more mystical imagery of astrology and the art of navigation. His book records the stan?dard repertoire of a seventeenth-century Spanish dance-band, ranging from the fash?ionable xdcaras, which imitates the arrogant, street-wise swagger peculiar to the urban sub-culture of the Jacques, or punks, to the courtly elegance of the Gran Duque, first heard as the finale to the 1589 Florentine Intermedi.
Lucas Ruiz de Ribayaz y Foncea
Ribayaz was born in Santa Maria de Ribarredonda, near Burgos in northern Spain in 1626. A minor aristocrat presumably without independent means, he followed a career as a theologian. He was not a profes?sional musician, but a keen amateur with well-founded practical and theoretical knowledge of the art. Ribayaz traveled to South America with Tomas de Torrejon y Velasco, the composer of La purpura de la rosa, the first opera to be performed in the New World. Little else is known about his life, except that he later held a post in Villafranca del Bierco in the province of Leon.
Pasacalles and Diferencias
The 'brief Exposition of the Art' included within Luz y Norte gives valuable hints on performance practice. Ribayaz apologizes for explaining ideas 'known to every child on the streets of Madrid', but much of this information is not to be found in more
'advanced' treatises of the period. Since his tablature for the harp contains no rhythm signs, he discusses the typical Spanish triple metre with its strong second beat in terms of guitar-strumming. A full chord on the harp corresponds to a down-stroke on the guitar, and an up-stroke is represented by a single note in the right hand. This parallel is also to be found in Baroque treatises on percussion, which link the highand low-pitched castanets to upand down-strokes on the guitar. Ribayaz also includes fingerings and a kind of basso continue) notation for the harp.
As a prelude to their performance, seventeenth-century harpists and guitarists would play the pasacalles, a simple chord sequence that defined the tonality and metre of the following piece. The pasacalles could be adapted to correspond to the characteris?tic pattern of particular dances, and could also be extended by means of improvised variations. The basic harmonies of the pasacalles were restated in different registers, decorated melodically with the bell-like descending scales of the campanela, subjected to rhythmic variation and transformed by shocking falsas. The deliberate use oifalsas, wrong notes, allowed the player to demon?strate musical virtuosity by extricating him?self from the maze of discord in accordance with the rules of harmony. Falsas appear first in Mudarra's Fantasia de Luduvico, written in imitation of the improvising style of a famous sixteenth-century harpist, and became a popular preluding style for keyboardand guitar-players.
In common with many sixteenthand seventeenth-century tutors, Ribayaz's Luz y Norte goes beyond explaining the technicali?ties of the harp and guitar to teach how to create new music by the Baroque practice of spontaneous ornamentation. The pieces that he entabulates are not only repertoire to be performed; they are also examples of the diferencia method to be imitated in impro-
visation. Our improvised diferendas are closely modeled on original sources contemporary with Luz y Norte, such as the guitar-books of Gaspar Sanz and Santiago de Murcia, as well as incorporating elements derived from earlier Spanish music and traditional South American folk-music.
Most of the dances in Luz y Norte include a number of variations or diferendas over the ostinato of a ground bass. Usually, Ribayaz begins with a chordal statement of the theme, in the rasgueado (strumming style) so typical of the guitar. Melodic varia?tions correspond to the guitar's punteado (plucking style), proceeding from treble to bass, or from simple to more complex fig?ures. In the same way that the melodies could be ornamented by dividing the long notes into groups of short notes, the rhythm could be decorated with faster strumming patterns. This simultaneous use of punteado and rasgueado divisions can be heard in the galliardas.
Bailes and Danzas
Seventeenth-century dance masters divided their repertoire into three main genres: French courtly dances (the minuet, and such Parisian adaptations of Spanish models as Les Folies d'Espagne); Spanish formal dances or danzas {El gran duque and the folias); and the exuberant, exotic bailes (such as the chaconas, fandangos, and tarantelas). Most of the South American dances were of the baile type, in which certain 'violent steps' were permitted, such as the high-kicking bolero, the sudden stops of the paradetas or the rhythmic foot-work of the canarios. lust as the instrumentalists improvise diferendas over the written bass-lines, so the dancer improvises his mudanzas, linking together steps from period dance tutors into choreo?graphies in the same theme and variation form as the music.
La purpura de la Rosa (The Blood of the Rose)
La purpura de la rosa, the first New World opera, performed in Lima, Peru in 1701, presents the story of Venus and Adonis in characteristically Hispanic style. Calderon's dramatic verse is poetry of a quality rarely to be found in an opera libretto, and Torrejon's music sets the text not as recitative but as strophic variations in Spanish dance-metres, accompanied by a continuo-band of guitars, lirone and harp. The tragedy of the final scene, in which Adonis' blood stains the white roses red, is resolved into a happy ending: the power of love overcomes jealous anger, and Venus and Adonis ascend to the heavens (she as the evening star, he as a flower) while the setting sun stains the white clouds as red as the blood of the rose.
The Harp Consort's recording of Luz y Norte is avail?able on CD from BMG records on the DHM label, under the title Spanish Dances.
Andrew Lawrence-King
The Harp Consort is a group of musicians who specialize in impro?visation within the various styles of baroque and medieval music. The original harp consort was created in seventeenth-century England at the court of King Charles I. Unlike the string orchestra (also formed at this time) in which many musicians played the same kind of instrument, the harp consort brought together diverse types of solo instru?ments to create new sounds, following the italianate fashion for colourful combina?tions of harp, lutes, keyboards and strings. Like the seventeenth-century consort, The Harp Consort is formed around the accompanying instruments of the basso continue Although continuo-players have a written bass-line, they must improvise har?monies and melodic figures on different instruments and in the appropriate style for the period and country. The Harp Consort takes continuo as a model for all kinds of performance, combining the spontaneity of improvisation with careful attention to the particular colours of each repertoire.
This performance marks The Harp Consort's debut under UMS auspices.
An imaginative and virtuosic harp soloist and a uniquely versatile continuo-player, Andrew Lawrence-King is recognized as one of the world's leading early music artists. His musical career began as Head Chorister at the Cathedral and Parish Church of St. Peter Port Guernsey, where he won an Organ Scholarship to Cambridge, completing his studies at the London Early Music Centre. He rapidly established him?self as continuo-player to Europe's foremost specialist ensembles and in 1988 founded and co-directed the continuo-group Tragicomedia. He joined Jordi Savall's Hesperion XX as harp soloist, and was appointed Professor of Harp and Continuo
at the Akademie fur Alte Musik, Bremen.
In 1994, Andrew Lawrence-King formed his own ensemble, The Harp Consort, to record the Spanish, South American and African dance-music of Ribayaz's Luz y Norte, beginning an associa?tion with DHM which continues with Carolan's Harp (baroque Irish Music); Italian Concerto (Bach, Handel, Vivaldi); Vivaldi's Four Seasons and with the solo albums, La Harpe Royale and Die Davidsharfe. He now divides his time between solo recitals, tours with The Harp Consort, and appearances as guest director for orchestras, choirs and Baroque operas throughout Europe and Scandinavia.
This season's engagements include Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonic, Tokyo's Casals Hall, the Vienna Musikverein, London's Wigmore Hall, Sydney's Opera House and the first perfor?mance of the 1589 Florentine Intermedi in Helsinki. Andrew Lawrence-King has also directed The Harp Consort in recordings of the medieval Ludus Danielis and the first New World opera La purpura de la rosa, which was also performed at the Utrecht Early Music Festival. Andrew recently gained the Royal Yachting Association's cov?eted Yachtmaster certificate, and spends most of his free time aboard his boat, "Continuo".
Liliana Mazzarri was born in Venezuela where she completed her BA in music at the Universidad Central de Venezuela. She came to London in 1990 having won a scholar?ship to study post graduate Early Music and Vocal Training courses at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama where she was awarded the Celia Bizony Prize for three consecutive years. Liliana was a prize winner at the Van Wassenaer International Competition in Amsterdam (1994) and the Van Vlaanderen Competition in Brugge (1996), both for early music ensemble. She
has performed worldwide with many lead?ing early music ensembles, such as the New London Consort, Combattimento, the Brandenburg Consort, Camerata de Caracas, Circa 1500 and Jordi Savall's Hesperion XX.
She also has recorded music by Thomas Linley with the Musicians of the Globe, can?tatas by Giovanni Felice Sances with Musica Fabula, and Spanish and Latin American early music with the Camerata de Caracas.
During this year she will record music by Luigi Rossi with the Carolinian Consort for ASV and seventeenthand eighteenth-century Latin American music with Chatham Baroque for Dorian Records.
Michael Metzler was born in Leipzig, Germany. He studied percussion at the Leipzig College of Music, with Hermann Naehring (Berlin). He subsequently special?ized in ethnic percussion, working with Ahmed Subhy in Cairo and Glen Velez in New York. He has made numerous CD, radio and television recordings and given guest performances in Europe, Asia and America with ensembles such as loculatores, Les haulz et les bas, The Harp Consort, Svargod and others. Michael Metzler also teaches historical percussion at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Switzerland.
Hille Perl was born in 1965 in Bremen into a family of musicians. Her training on the viol began at the age of five. She studied in Hamburg, Germany with Pere Ros and Ingrid Stampa and pursued advanced stud?ies at the Academy for Early Music in Bremen with Jaap ter Linden and Sarah Cunningham.

Born in 1959, Steven Player received a BFA from the Falmouth School of Art, and then attended the Royal College of Music in London, where he studied lute with Jakob Lingberg.
During his music studies he also became interested in the relationship between music and dance, and began to study early dance with major exponents in the field. He now specializes in the music and dance of the Renaissance and Baroque periods. In addition to various lutes, he also plays Renaissance and Baroque guitars and various types of bagpipe.
Steven has worked with the Royal Shakespeare Company at Stratford-upon-Avon, The Barbican Centre, and on tour with various Shakespeare productions. He appears regularly as a musician and dancer with the groups Tragicomedia, Kithara, Circa 1500, and The Harp Consort. In addi?tion to these groups, he has appeared with a variety of early music ensembles and at many international music festivals.
Supplementing his musical perfor?mances, Player has also made many televi?sion appearances on BBC and taught dance and given professional dance workshops throughout Europe. His musical recordings include Three, Four, and Twenty Lutes on the Bis label, Musk From Hampton Court on Cantorus Records, and Luz y Norte with The Harp Consort on Deutsche Harmonia Mundi.
Paul O'Dette has been called "the clearest case of genius ever to touch his instrument" (Toronto Globe and Mail). His performances
at the major international early music festi?vals in Boston, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Berkeley, Utrecht, London, Bath, Paris, Montpellier, Munich, Berlin, Vienna, Prague, Barcelona, Copenhagen, Oslo, and Daroca, have often been singled out as the highlight of those events. Though best known for his recitals and recordings of virtuoso solo lute music, Paul O'Dette maintains an active international career as an ensemble musi?cian as well, performing with Gustav Leonhardt, Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Jordi Savall, William Christie, Christopher Hogwood, Sylvia McNair, Andrew Parrott, Nicholas McGegan, Nigel Rogers, Tragicomedia, Tafelmusik, The Parley of Instruments and The Harp Consort. He is co-director of The Musicians of Swanne Alley, an Elizabethan consort highly-acclaimed for its performances of the virtu?oso broken consort literature.
Paul O'Dette has made more than 100 recordings, several of which have been nom?inated for Gramophone's "Record of the Year" Award. Recent releases include The Complete Lute Music of John Dowland (a 5-CD set for harmonia mundi usa), which has been awarded the prestigious Diapason D'or du l'annee, Dolcissima et Amorosa -Early Renaissance Italian Lute Music (harmonia mundi usa) which received a "Choc du Monde de la Musique", The Echoing Air -Songs of Henry Purcell with Sylvia McNair (Philips) which recently won a Grammy, The Royal Consorts of William Lawes with The Purcell Quartet (Chandos), Hark Hark the Lark and The Broken Consorts of Matthew Locke with the Parley of Instruments (Hyperion) to name a few. Mr. O'Dette has performed in countless interna?tional radio and television broadcasts.
In addition to his activities as a performer, Paul O'Dette is an avid researcher, having worked extensively on the performance and sources of seventeenth-century Italian and English solo song, continuo practices and
lute technique, the latter resulting in a forthcoming book co-authored by Patrick O'Brien. He has published numerous articles on issues of historical performance practice. Paul O'Dette has served as Director of Early Music at the Eastman School of Music since 1976 and is Artistic Director of the Boston Early Music Festival. This past year he has conducted Baroque operas in Boston, Tanglewood and at the Drottningholm Court Theater in Stockholm.
Song Texts
Marizapalos bajo una tarde
Marizapalos bajo una tarde
al verde sotillo de Vacia-Madrid,
porque entonces, pisandole ella,
no hubiesse mas Flandes que ver su Pais.
Estampando su breve chinela, que tiene ventaja mayor que chapin, por bordar con sus perlas las flores, el raso del campo se hizo tabi.
Marizapalos era muchacha y enamorada de Pedro Martin, por sobrina del cura estimada, la gala del pueblo, la flor del Abril.
Al sotillo la bella rapaza de su amartelado se dejo seguir, y llevando su nombre en la boca, toda su alegria se le volvio anis.
Al volver la cabeza la nina, fingio de repente el verle venir y fue tanto su gusto y su risa, que todo el recato se llevo tras si.
Recibiole con rostro sereno y, dandole luego su mano feliz, aguardarle en la palma le ofrece toda la victoria cifrada en jazmin.
Dijo Pedro, besando la nieve, que ya por su causa miro derretir: "En tus manos mas valen dos blancas que todo el Ochavo de Valladolid."
Merendaron los dos en la mesa que puso la nina de su faldellin, y Perico, mirandole verde, comio con la salsa de su perejil.
Marizapalos went down one afternoon
Marizapalos went down one afternoon to the little green grove of Vacia-Madrid, so that then, as she stepped on it, there would be no more Flanders than seeing her own countryside.
Stamping her small slippers, that have great advantages over wooden clogs, by embroidering the flowers with her pearls, the flat countryside was made moir.
Marizapalos was a young girl and in love with Pedro Martin, as the niece of the esteemed priest, [she was] the finery of the town, the flower of April.
To the grove the beautiful young girl let herself be followed by her lover and carrying his name in her mouth, all her happiness turned to sugar-coated aniseed.
Upon turning her head the girl pretended sud?denly that she saw him coming and such was her delight and her laughter, that she brought all caution behind her.
Receiving him with a serene face and, giving him later her contented hand, she offers to expect from him in the palm all the victory in ciphers of jasmine.
Said Pedro, kissing the snow, that already he saw melting on his account: "In your hands two blancas are worth more than all the brass coinage in Valladolid."
The two had a snack on the table that the girl made of her underskirt, and Perico, seeing her green, ate with the sauce of her parsley.
Pretendiendo de su garabato hurtar las pechugas con salto sutil, respondio Marizapalos jzape! Uevando sus voces carinos de jmiz!
Al ruido que hizo en las hojas de las herraduras de cierto rocin, el Adonis se puso en huda, temiendo los dientes de algn javali.
Era el cura que al soto venia y, si poco antes aportara alii, como sabe gramatica el cura, jpudiera cogerlos en el mal latin!
Venus attacked by the Beast
Venus' nymphs:
jAl bosque, al bosque monteros
que osadamente veloz
va en alcance de una fiera
la hermosa madre de Amor!
jVentores al valle al valle que empenado su valor se fia en que la hermosura vence mas que el arp6n!
jAl monte al monte sabuesos Que bien tendra su esplendor contra los hombres poder mas contra los brutos no!
jLebreles al llano, al llano que del cerdoso terror errado el tiro embestida peligra su perfeccion!
jAy infelice! t No hay
quien me de amparo y favor
?tvo hay quien me socorra, cielos,
en tan fiero lance
Intending with his hook to steal the breasts with a subtle leap, Marizapalos responded "zape!" as her voices soothed with affection saying "kitty"
To the sound that was made in the leaves by the horseshoe of a certain old hack, the Adonis made himself flee, fearing the teeth of some wild boar.
It was the priest who came to the grove and, if he had by chance arrived there a little earlier, as the priest knows grammar, he could have caught them in bad Latin!
Venus' nymphs:
To the woods, to the woods, hunters!
for with daring speed,
the beautiful mother of Love
chases the wild beast...
To the valley, to the valley, hounds!
for assured in her valour,
she knows that beauty
conquers even more surely than the spear...
To the mountains, to the mountains, beagles!
for her splendour
may well have power over men,
but not against beasts...
To the plain, to the plain, greyhounds! for the terrible boar, wounded by the errant shot, threatens her perfection...
Alas, unhappy me! Is there nobody to help me, nobody to save me in this terrible, critical moment
Un Adonis, jay de mi! Como, soberanos dioses cielo, sol, luna y estrellas, riscos, selvas, prados, bosques, aves, brutos, fieras, peces, troncos, plantas, rosas, flores, fuentes, rios, lagos, mares, ninfas, deidades y hombres, sufris tal estrago
Un sarao de la chacona
Se hizo el mes de las rosas Huvo millares de cosas
Y la fama lo pregona. A la vida vidita bona Vida vaamonos a Chacona
Porque se caso Almadan Se hizo un bravo sarao Dancaron hijas de Anao Con los nietos de Milan Un suegro de Don Beltran
Y una cunada de Orfeo ComenAaron un guineo
Y acabolo una amaAona
Y la fama lo pregona...
Salio la Raza y la Traza Todas tomadas de orin,
Y danzando un matachin El Onate y la Viaraza Entre la Raza y la Traza Se levanto tan gran lid, Que fue menester que el Cid Les bailase una Chacona
Y la fama lo pregona...
Adonis, alas!
How, sovereign gods,
heaven, sun, moon and stars,
cliffs, forests, meadows, woods,
birds, animals, wild beasts, fish
tree-trunks, plants, roses, flowers,
fountains, rivers, lakes, seas,
nymphs, deities and men,
how can you allow such wickedness
There was a Chacona soiree
held in the month of roses. They did thousands of things and everyone talks about it... Here's to life, and the good life! Let's go to the Chacona!
Since Almadan was to be married they held an elegant soiree. The daughters of Anao danced With the nephews of Milan. Don Beltran's father-in-law danced with Orpheus' cousin. A Guinean began it And a Amazon ended it and everyone talks about it...
Raza and Traza came Enflamed with lust. And old Onate danced a matachin with crazy Miss Viaraza. There was such a quarrel between Raza and Traza, that it was necessary for El Cid himself to dance a Chacona for them and everyone talks about it...
Salio una carga de Aloe Con todas sus sabandijas; Luego vendiendo alejijas Salio la Gruella en un pie. Un Africano sin fe Un Negro y una Gitana Cantando la dina dana
Y el Negro la dina dona
Y la fama lo pregona...
Entraron treinta Domingos Con veinte lunes a cuestas
Y cargo con esas cestas Un asno dando respingos. Juana con Tingolomingos Salio las bragas enjutas
Y mas de cuarenta putas Huyendo de Barcelona.
Y la fama lo pregona...
There came a load of Aloes
full of creepy-crawlies,
Then out hopped Miss Stork
selling rye fritters.
A heathen African,
A Negro and a Gypsy-girl
Singing fala lay
And the Negro fala laid her
and everyone talks about it...
Thirty Sunday-monks came with twenty Monday-girls on their backs to be loaded up and rocked to and fro like a stubborn donkey. Juana with Tingolomingos came out tight-fitting shorts And more than forty whores arrived from Barcelona and everyone talks about it...

Histoire du soldat (The Soldier's Tale)
Igor Stravinsky
Born on June 17, 1882 in St. Petersburg
Died on April 6,1971 in New York
Histoire du soldat was completed in 1918 and premiered on September 28, 1918 in Lausanne, Switzerland conducted by Ernest Ansermet.
After soaring to international fame in 1910 with The Firebird, Igor Stravinsky became a citizen of the world, living in Switzerland during the autumn and winter months, returning to Russia for the summers, and descending on Paris to oversee the produc?tions of Petrushka, The Rite of Spring and Le Rossignol. With the outbreak of the First World War in 1914, however, his travel was restricted, and he settled full-time in Switzerland, near Lausanne, where he remained until moving to France in 1920. Among his closest friends during the War was Ernest Ansermet, then conductor of the symphony concerts in Geneva and founder (in 1918) of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande based in Lausanne. It was through Ansermet's introduction that Stravinsky met the Swiss novelist and poet Charles Ferdinand Ramuz late in 1915. Stravinsky invited Ramuz to help prepare French versions of the Russian texts for Reynard and Les Noces, and the col?laboration went so well that they agreed to undertake a new joint project in 1917. Given the difficulty of theater production during the War, they realized that only a very small company could be assembled, perhaps one which could play in almost any hall and easily tour Switzerland. Ramuz, not being a dramatist, suggested that he write a story which could be presented on stage as a kind of acted narration, something "to be read, played and danced." It was agreed that Stravinsky's music would be an accompani?ment to the action, arranged so that it could
be performed either on stage or independently in concert. For a subject, they settled on a story from a collection of Russian tales compiled by Alexander Afanasiev which concerned, according to Stravinsky, "a Soldier who tricks the Devil into drinking too much vodka. He then gives the Devil a handful of shot to eat, assuring him it is caviar, and the Devil greedily swallows it and dies." Stravinsky and Ramuz incorporated other episodes from Afanasiev's stories into their scenario, notably one which featured a "Soldier who deserts and the wily Devil who infallibly comes to claim his soul."
A Narrator would tell the following Soldier's Tale while performers portraying the characters danced and mimed to Stravinsky's music:
A Soldier, granted ten days leave, marches home to his family's village. He rests along the way, takes out his fiddle, and plays. The Devil, disguised as an old man with a butterfly net, persuades the Soldier to trade his fiddle for a magic book. He invites the Soldier to spend two days of his leave with him, when he will show him how to earn immense wealth from the book. Arriving at his village after their encounter, the Soldier discovers that not two days but twenty years have passed. He tries to console himself with the wealth obtained through the book, but can find no peace, and wanders into another king?dom. The Princess of the land is ill, and the King has promised her hand in mar?riage to anyone who can cure her. The Soldier determines to try. The Devil appears, playing the Soldier's violin. The Soldier challenges him to a game of cards. The Soldier loses his wealth to the Devil, whose power over him is thus ended. When the Devil collapses, the Soldier reclaims his violin, and plays the Princess back to health. She dances a tango, a waltz and a ragtime. The Devil reappears,
the Soldier fiddles him into contortions, and the Soldier and the Princess drag his body into the wings. The Devil swears vengeance. Some years after his marriage, the Soldier wants to visit his village. The Narrator counsels him not to seek the old, lost happiness of his youth now that he has found married happiness in a new home with the Princess. Refusing the advice, the Soldier sets out. When he crosses the frontier, however, he again falls under the mastery of the Devil, who takes his violin and leads him away, powerless to resist.
The Soldier's Tale signaled an important change in Stravinsky's musical style, away from the orchestral opulence of his early ballet scores toward a more economical, neo-Classical, international manner of expression. He later explained:
My choice of instruments was influenced by a very important event in my life at that time, the discovery of American jazz.... The Histoire ensemble resembles the jazz band in that each instrumental category--strings, woodwinds, brass, percussion--is represented by both bass and treble components. The instruments themselves are jazz legitimates, too, except the bassoon, which is my substitution for the saxophone.... The percussion part must also be considered as a manifestation of my enthusiasm for jazz. I purchased the instruments from a music shop in Lausanne, learning to play them myself as I composed. To bang a gong, bash a cymbal, clout a woodblock (or a critic) has always given me the keenest satisfac?tion.... My knowledge of jazz was derived exclusively from copies of sheet music [brought back from America by the con?ductor Ernest Ansermet.] As I had never actually heard any of the music performed, I borrowed its rhythmic style not as played, but as written. I could imagine jazz sound, however, or so I liked to think. Jazz meant,
in any case, a wholly new sound in my music, and Histoire marks my final break with the Russian orchestral school in which I had been fostered.
The most obvious evidence of the influ?ence of jazz and modern dance styles on the work are the "Tango" and "Ragtime" danced by the Princess. (Stravinsky so liked the rag idiom that he wrote an independent Ragtime for Eleven Instruments as soon as he had fin?ished the score for Histoire.) Concerning the dramatic use of his instrumental ensemble, Stravinsky noted, "If every good piece of music is marked by its own characteristic sound, then the characteristic sounds of Histoire are the scrape of the violin and the punctuation of the drums. The violin is the Soldier's soul and the drums are the diablerie"

He is a member of Ensemble Wien-Berlin--a woodwind quintet he formed with principal players of the Berlin and Vienna Philharmonics--and a member of Concentus Musicus of Vienna. Mr. Turkovic has performed as a soloist with the Mostly Mozart Festival at Avery Fisher Hall, Chicago Symphony Orchestra at the Ravinia Festival, and the St. Louis Symphony. He has also appeared at the Marlboro, Sarasota, Pacific Music, Kusatsu (Japan), and Zurich festivals. Mr. Turkovic conducts chamber orchestras and large wind ensembles in Europe and Japan and in 1997 conducted The Juilliard Winds at Alice Tully Hall. His extensive discography consists of fifteen solo bassoon works, including the Carl Maria von Weber concerti (with Sir Neville Marriner), five Vivaldi concerti with Solisti Italiani, and more than 200 recordings with Concentus Musicus. He is the only artist to have recorded the Mozart Bassoon Concerto in four different versions, one of which features an original seven-key period instrument. Mr. Turkovic is from an Austro-Croation background and currently resides in Vienna, where for two years he hosted a classical music program on Austrian Television. A teacher at the Vienna Hochschule, he has been an Artist of the CMS since 1993.
The founding of The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center in 1969 was the realization of the dream of William Schuman, Alice Tully, and Charles Wadsworth to
establish a constituent of Lincoln Center devoted to the outstanding performance and creation of chamber music. Its pioneer?ing structure--a core of Artist Members augmented by invited guests--allows Artistic Director David Shifrin to present concerts of every instrumentation, style, and historical period at Lincoln Center, on national and international tours, and on national television via Live from Lincoln Center. The CMS offers a variety of programs in addition to its core series of concerts at Alice Tully Hall, includ?ing a family concert series called Meet the Music! and a professional development pro?gram for outstanding emerging artists enti?tled Chamber Music Society Two. The CMS discography includes recent recordings of Dvorak's Serenade and Quintet, Beethoven's Septet, music by Carl Maria von Weber fea?turing clarinetistArtistic Director David Shifrin, Bach's Brandenburg Concertos, and Walton's Facade with Lynn Redgrave as nar?rator. In its twenty-eight years, the CMS has commissioned over a hundred new works from a formidable array of composers and continues to support the work of living composers by awarding the Elise L. Stoeger Prize, a $10,000 award given annually to each of two outstanding composers of cham?ber music. The Chamber Music Society has been guided by three Artistic Directors: founding Artistic Director Charles Wadsworth; Fred Sherry; and, since 1992, David Shifrin, who became an Artist Member in 1989.
On July 1, 1996, Jazz at Lincoln Center (J@LC) became the twelfth constituent of Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, joining the other companies as a financially and artistically independent member of the Lincoln Center family. Jazz music now has a permanent and prominent home at one of America's most venerable performing arts institutions. "The affirmation of Lincoln Center as a place where swinging is recog?nized is an important step forward," stated Jazz at Lincoln Center Artistic Director Wynton Marsalis. J@LC is a year-round
comprehensive organization that produces concerts, lectures, film programs, record?ings, radio broadcasts, international tours, and educational programs for adults and children, anchored by the distinguished Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and featuring a host of remarkable guests. Under the artis?tic leadership of Wynton Marsalis, this pro?gram has risen to international prominence since its inception in 1987. In January 1991, after the consistent success of the summer concert series called Classical Jazz, Lincoln Center announced the formation of a year-round jazz department, the first of its kind at a major performing arts institution. Five successful seasons later, J@LC became a constituent organization at Lincoln Center. During its 1997-98 season, J@LC will present over 150 concerts, lectures, film programs, master classes, workshops for children, and special events throughout the world. Jazz at Lincoln Center aspires to reach and educate the public and maintain jazz at the forefront of America's cultural consciousness through performance, education, and preservation.
Tonight's collaboration between the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and Jazz at Lincoln Center is the culmination of a rich and varied history between the University Musical Society and both institutions.
CMS marks its sixth appearance under UMS auspices; a history which began with their 1978 debut on the Chamber Arts Series. They were most recently seen in Ann Arbor as part of last season's Schubertiade.
Jazz at Lincoln Center has appeared under UMS auspices annually for the last five sea?sons presenting tributes to Louis Armstrong, Thelonius Monk, and Jelly Roll Morton. They last appeared in February 1997presenting Mr. Marsalis' Pulitzer-prize winning Blood on the Fields.

String Quartet No.3, Op.30
Arnold Schoenberg
Born September 13, 1874 in Vienna
Died July 13, 1951 in Los Angeles
Serial music has been receiving a lot of bad press lately, from critics and composers who feel that the twelve-tone method is too "cerebral" to be expressive of any emotions or too abstruse to be accessible to a listener who has not made this music a subject of in-depth study. These sentiments can be well understood in an era where second-and third-generation serialists have empha?sized the mathematical aspect of this method to the expense of all others. Yet an encounter with a work from the early days of serialism may well convince doubters that twelve-tone technique in no way precludes the writing of powerful and emotionally compelling music. Foreseeing the danger of such a misinterpretation, Arnold Schoenberg took pains to point out that his newer works were "twelve-tone compositions, not twelve-tone compositions." This warning was con?tained in a letter to Rudolf Kolisch, the leader of the famed Kolisch Quartet, then preparing for the first performance of Schoenberg's String Quartet No. 3.
Schoenberg developed the twelve-tone technique in the early 1920s, after a composing career of a quarter of a century, because he firmly believed the stylistic evolution of music called for a new system to replace that of classical tonality. For him, it was a matter of imposing rules on materials that had long since outgrown the principles underlying eighteenthand nineteenth-century music. He was able to do this, however, without sacrificing the immediacy and the commu?nicative power of his style. In the last years of his life, he would write a celebrated essay entitled Heart and Brain in Mtisic, and in his compositional practice, he brought about a perfect synthesis of the two.
Consider the first measures of the Third Quartet, with their palpitating rhythmic patterns serving as a backdrop to a non-traditional, yet strongly expressive lyrical melody. The elements introduced in this exciting beginning are developed with a cogent logic, yet full of unexpected twists that no serial theorist would ever be able to predict -particularly in the rhythm, where groups of four eighth-notes alternate with groups of three in rather fascinating ways. Despite its innovative sound, the movement basically follows classical sonata form, though the different thematic areas are unified by the pulsating eighth-notes which almost never stop, maintaining a high level of tension throughout the movement.
The second movement is a double varia?tion; that is, there are two themes, presented subsequently and then varied in turns. The first theme is a slow-moving "Adagio;" the second maintains the same tempo but the note-values used are much shorter, thereby creating faster motion. Each theme is pre?sented in three variations, preserving the principal features but enriching them with figurations and other ways of expanding upon the original forms.
The third movement is titled "Intermezzo," possibly in homage to Brahms. It is, for all intents and purposes, a scherzo. Its opening theme is dance-like in rhythm and serial in melody, consistently mixing familiar and unfamiliar procedures. The trio section abounds in violent rhythmic accents. As always in Schoenberg, the recapitulation is strongly modified, yet the dance-like main melody is clearly recongnizable.
The fourth-movement "Rondo" uses the same contrast between symmetrical rhythmic patterns and serial pitch structure as does the "Intermezzo." It is a piece characterized by great vigor and textural diversity that, after a powerful climax, ends surprisingly on a quiet, understated tone.
Schoenborji's Third Quartet was com-
missioned by Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge, the great American patroness of new music who championed the music of many of the century's greatest composers, including Webern, Bartok, Stravinsky and Prokofiev. The first performance was given by the Kolisch Quartet in Vienna on September 19,1927.
Program note by Peter Laki
String Quartet No.3 in F, Op.73
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg
Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
By the time Shostakovich sat down to tackle his Third Quartet, World War II was finally over and the composer had resettled with his family in Moscow, where he took up a teaching position at the Moscow Conservatory. Shostakovich dedicated his new quartet, completed on August 2,1946, to the members of the Beethoven Quartet, who gave the premiere in Moscow on December 16,1946. The peaceful respite did not last long. Between the dates of comple?tion and premiere, Russia's artistic intelli?gentsia was shaken by fresh upheavals. The composer himself had renewed cause for alarm: though overshadowed by official decrees on literature and drama and by the vilification of writers Anna Akhmatova and Mikhail Zoshchenko, a ruthless attack on Shostakovich and his Symphony No. 9 appeared. Even after the Quartet No. 3 was suppressed in 1948 -along with most of his finest works -Shostakovich continued to regard it as one of his most successful compositions.
Like his Symphony No. 8 and his Symphony No. 9, Shostakovich cast the Quartet No. 3 in five movements. The struc?tural parallels with the former are particu?larly striking: while the opening movement
of the Quartet No. 3 has temperamental affinities with the Symphony No. 9, the inner movements -including a fourth-move?ment passacaglia -have their direct con?ceptual counterparts in the Symphony No. 8. The main theme of the Quartet's sonata-form first movement skips along like a care?free polka. Concerned lest the humor in this music be misinterpreted, Shostakovich instructed that the movement should be played not cockily, but with tenderness. Noteworthy in the second movement is the synchronous staccato "tiptoeing" of the four instruments in the middle section.
The effect of the brusque chords of the third movement, the aggressive, hard-edged insistence of its headlong drive (intensified here by the unpredictablility of alternating meters), is something that Shostakovich returns to in subsequent quartets. The dot?ted rhythms of the quasi-passacaglia (the repetitions of the theme are not entirely continuous), as well as the characteristic funeral march accompaniment that makes its appearance on the fourth repetition, also herald an obsession with the theme of death that will increase in later works. The final movement, to which the closing measures of the fourth movement lead without pause, has the character of a lilting barcarolle, with somewhat pensive overtones. At the emo?tional climax of the movement, Shostakovich brings back the passacaglia theme in canon between viola and cello (fjffexpressivo). Reminiscences of themes from earlier move?ments, as well as the seamless linking of movements, are among the composer's favorite techniques for achieving a sense of cyclic unity.
Program note by Laurel E. Fay
The Hagen Quartet began attracting attention while its members were still students at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. The young musicians (Lukas Hagen and Rainer Schmidt, violins; Veronika Hagen, viola; Clemens Hagen, cello; Rainer Schmidt joined the ensemble in 1987) received strong encouragement and inspira?tion for older colleagues such as Gidon Kremer, Walter Levin, Heinrich Schiff, Sandor Vegh and Nicholas Harnoncourt. Among the milestones of the ensemble's career are first prizes at the 1982 Portmouth and the 1983 Evian competitions.
Today, the Hagen Quartet belongs to the elite of international string quartets. It has developed a reputation for its bold interpretations and challenging program?ming, and for its flawless technique and ensemble work. The Hagen Quartet makes frequent appearances at all the major music centers of Europe, including Berlin, Vienna, London, Paris and Amsterdam. It has toured extensively in the United States, South America, Asia, and Australia. In addition,
the Quartet regularly performs at Europe's leading festivals, including annual apper-ances at the Salzburg and Lockenhaus Chamber Music Festivals.
Since 1985, the Hagen Quartet has held an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon, one of only two string quar?tets to record presently with the esteemed company. Two of its many recordings have been awarded the Grand Prix International du Disque: their 1987 interpretation of Dvorak and Kodaly works, and their 1990 recordings of three Haydn Quartets. In addition, the group has twice been the recipient of the Prix Cecilia award, and in 1987 produced a film with Unitel.
This performance marks The Hagen Quartet's second appearance under UMS auspices.
