A Letter from the President
Welcome to this University Musical Society performance. Thank you for supporting UMS and the performing arts in our community by attending this event. The 1998-99 season is one of our most exciting ever. So diverse in its scope, it is impossible for me to zero in on just one event. Complementing our continued focus on music of all kinds, I would like to make special mention of our emphasis on dance and dance audience development this season. As our 1998-99 dance promotional campaign states, UMS is "simply committed to the best in dance for Michigan."
We're very pleased that you're at this event and hope you'll consider attending other UMS performances as well as some of the educational and social events surrounding our concerts.
You'll find listings of all of these events in this program book on page 22 through 25.
I'm privileged to work with a dedicated and talented staff. One of them, box office representative Sally Cushing, is celebrating 30 years with UMS this season, representing the longest-serving employee among our current staff. The entire UMS family joins me in thanking Sally for her loyalty, friendli?ness, and commitment to providing outstanding service to all of our patrons. Say "hi" to Sally
when you next call or stop by the box office. I hope we have a chance to meet. I'd like to hear your thoughts about this performance. I'd also be pleased to answer any questions and to learn 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 we don't see each other in the lobby, please call my office at Burton Tower on the campus (734-647-1174) or send me an e-mail message at kenfisch@umich.edu.
Sincerely,
Kenneth C. Fischer, President

University Musical Society
of the University of Michigan
The goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is clear: to engage, educate, and serve Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 120 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 millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stim?ulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university
and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first perfor?mance 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. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and through?out the year presented a series of concerts fea?turing 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. UMS now hosts over 80 performances 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 Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, and Nichols Arboretum.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organi?zation, which supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foun?dation 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 120-year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conduc?tors.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 180-voice Choral Union remains best known for its annual per?formances of Handel's Messiah each December. Four years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadowbrook for sub?scription performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe, and Prokofiev's Aleksandr Nevsky, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd.
In 1995, the Choral Union began an artistic association with the Toledo Symphony, inaugu?rating the partnership with a performance of Britten's War Requiem, and continuing with per?formances of Berlioz' Requiem, Elgar's The Dream ofGerontius and Verdi's Requiem. During the 1996-97 season, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include perfor?mances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, join?ing with them in a rare presentation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand).
Evidence of the Choral Union's artistic range can be found in the breadth of repertoire from the 1997-98 season: on one hand, the singers gave acclaimed performances of Mendelssohn's Elijah and Handel's Messiah in Hill Auditorium, and on the other, equally successful concert pre?sentations of Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra and musical theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook.
This season, the UMS Choral Union will perform in three major subscription series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Neeme Jarvi, including perfor?mances of Brahms' A German Requiem, Kodaly's Psalmus Hungaricus, and Rachmaninoff's mon?umental The Bells. Other programs include Handel's Messiah and Mozart's Requiem with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, and Carmina Burana with the Toledo Symphony.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion -a love of the choral art.
Auditoria
Hill Auditorium
Standing tall and proud in the heart of the University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is associated with the best performing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the 20th Annual Ann Arbor May Festival in 1913, this impressive structure has served as a showplace for a variety of impor?tant debuts and long relationships throughout the past 84 years. With acoustics that highlight everything from the softest 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 additional $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra perform-
ing Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. The auditorium seated 4,597 when it first opened; sub?sequent 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, and Newberry Hall, 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 grew out of 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 second floor and bowling alleys running the length of the basement. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live 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 balcony, 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 bro?ken 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 forty-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
Auditoria, continued
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 programmatic 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.
Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000 square foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musi?cians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the 2,800-seat facil?ity has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. In only two seasons, the Detroit Opera House became the foundation of a landmark programming col?laboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia Entertainment, formed a part?nership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 performers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, this well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmark is the box office and administrative 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 significantly. With a goal of deepening the understanding of the impor?tance of live performing arts as well as the major impact the arts can have in the com?munity, UMS now seeks out active and dynamic collaborations and partnerships to reach into the many diverse communities 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) perfor?mances. This year, more than 7,000 students will attend the Youth Performance Series, which includes The Harlem Nutcracker, Trinity Irish Dance Company, The Gospel at Colonus, Oipheus Chamber Orchestra with Pepe Romero, Kodo, and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater. In addition to the Youth Performance Series, UMS inaugurates its new First Acts program, bringing school children to regularly sched?uled evening and weekend performances and providing educational contexts. For more information on UMS youth education pro?grams, please call 734.647.6712.
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. UMS is also recognized as a "Partner in Excellence" by the Ann Arbor Public Schools.
Other activities that further the understanding of the artistic process and appreciation for the performing arts include:

Medieval Suite
Anonymous
The first piece in this group was written by a friend of mine a few years ago; it sounds like a medieval chant and it happens to be in the Aeolian mode (one of the Greek modes on which the classical European scales are based). The "Lamento di Tristan" comes from an anonymous fourteenth-century Italian collection of single-line melodies consisting of songs and instrumental dances. I have added harmony to this beautiful tune only where it seems implied. Other instruments would certainly have joined in, especially for dance pieces like the "Saltarellos", which are from the same collection. The "Ductia" however, is from an early English collection.
Concerto in D Major, Op. 3, No. 9 ("L'estro armonico")
Antonio Vivaldi
Born March 4, 1678 in Venice
Died July 28,1741 in Vienna
This particular concerto comes from a group of twelve entitled "L'estro armonico" (fickle or animated harmony) and was dedicated to Ferdinando III, Grand Duke of Tuscany. It was written for solo violin, strings, and continue
Historians say that Vivaldi's popularity is due to J.S. Bach's use of his concertos as models in writing his own keyboard concer?tos, and that Vivaldi was of mediocre talent. They even went so far as to say that of the 400 instrumental concertos he wrote, he composed but one, and the other 399 works are but copies. One might get that impression if one had to listen to all 400 concertos in one sitting. Be that as it may, this concerto does reflect cross-pollenization of operatic fragments, especially the second movement and its "lament" air, whilst the first and third movements demonstrate a repetitiveness in thematic material.
Asturias
(from Suite Espanola, Op. 47)
Isaac Albeniz
Born May 29, 1860 in Camprodon Died May 18, 1909 in Cambd-les-Bains (Pyrenees)
In his early years, Albeniz was an adventurer who studied in France and Belgium, became a pupil of Liszt in Germany, ran away to Puerto Rico and Cuba, crossed the United States on a concert tour that took him as far as San Francisco, and worked as a bar-room entertainer on the New York waterfront. He earned fortunes and lost them as a pianist, became a successful composer of operettas for the London theater, and finally settled in Paris to live and work as a serious musician. Like many other Spanish composers, he was born in Catalonia, in the northeastern region of the Iberian peninsula. But he soon fell
under the spell of the folk and popular music of Andalusia in the south, and his success in adapting its colorful idiom to concert music soon defined it as typically Spanish for the rest of the musical world.
Originally written for the piano, we hear tonight John Williams' transcription of one of the pieces in the Suite Espanola. Asturias is a hilly region along the Bay of Biscay in the north and center of the Spanish coal mining industry. The area has produced many haunting folk-songs and this piece is subtitled leyenda (legend).
El Decameron Negro
Leo Brouwer
Born March 1, 1939 in Havana, Cuba
Leo Brouwer's original career as a guitarist was shared with a growing interest in com?position, and this became his main vocation. Brouwer's works for guitar are a major part of the instrument's twentieth-century reper?toire, but are only a small proportion of his total output, which includes choral, vocal, chamber, and orchestral works, and so far, more than sixty film scores.
Early influences were Bartok and Stravinsky, and Brouwer has been continually interested in the developing language of com?position over the years through the "avant-garde" period of the 1960s and 1970s, in which his aleatoric pieces show lasting imagination and creativity in the use of minimalist ideas. Today, Brouwer describes his language as a "sort of neo-romanticism", with nationalist Afro-Cuban influences not far behind.
El Decameron Negro (1981) was inspired by a collection of traditional African tales collected by the anthropologist Leo Frobenius at the end of the ninteenth-century. The evocative titles -The Harp of the Warrior, The Lover's Flight into the Valley of Echoes, and the Ballad of the Lady in Love -are the starting point of a wonderfully imaginative piece which seems to unfold as a single story.
Stele
Phillip Houghton
Born April 26, 1954 in Melbourne, Australia
Phillip Houghton was a relative latecomer to classical music -his early musical interests being rock, jazz, and folk music. Although he has written in both acoustic and electronic media for theatre, film and dance, the guitar remains his first love and his music seems to add a new sense of time and space to the sound of the instrument. Phillip Houghton writes:
"Stele is strongly influenced by Greek art and mythology and the Grecian landscape. The word stele itself describes a headstone or monument, often erected on the coastline in memoriam of sailors and travellers lost at sea, or those never to return to their homeland. In a sense, they were beacons for lost souls. The Stele of Demokleides -which depicts the image of a lost sailor seated alone on a cliff, his head buried in his hands -provided great inspiration for the entire work and, in particu?lar, the first movement. The next movement, 'Dervish', is based on the statue of the mad galloping horse and jockey or Artemission, its musical form being a response to the ecstatic dance of the Whirling Dervishes. The third movement,'Bronze Apollo,' (in two sections, (a) Premonition and (b) Arpeggio, and inspired by the magnificent early bronze figure Piraeus Apollo), bears the subtitle 'Copper, Bronze, Water, Air, Green, Perfume.' 'Web', a short, relentless drone that compresses and weaves elements used in the preceding three movements, closes the solo."
Three Epitafios
Mikis Theodorakis
Born July 29,1925 in Chios
The Greek composer Mikis Theodorakis began the movement which transformed and revitalized Greek popular music in the 1960's. This combines elements of the old Byzantine traditions, based on church
plainsong and the Greek modes, with folk music and its more recent vocal and instru?mental styles, which altogether give us that recognizable "Greek" sound -lyrical and passionate melodies supported by driving rhythms and simple but strong harmonies. The other elements in this "new" popular music were the lyrics and poetry which grew from the social and political events of the time; (Theodorakis himself was tortured and imprisoned by the military dictatorship in 1967 and exiled in 1970). For his songs, Theodorakis is most often inspired by poetry about love and loneliness, freedom and oppression, and he has set both the Spanish poet Garcia Lorca and the Irish writer Brendan Behan to music. These three Epitafios are arrangements from a song cycle setting the lyrics of the Greek poet Ritsos.
Koyunbaba
Carlo Domeniconi
Carlo Domeniconi is an Italian guitarist and composer who spent many years living and teaching in Istanbul. The influence of Turkish music plays a large part in his compositions, particularly in this piece. (Koyunbaba is an area of southwest Turkey and it also means shepherd.) Domeniconi writes here for the guitar to be tuned in c-sharp minor, totally different from normal, and the sound is rich and exotic. Based on fantasy and variation, the music gradually builds during the work's four continuous sections, using the special tuning as a hyp?notic effect in creating musical intensity and excitement.
Program notes by John Williams.
John Williams was born in Australia in 1941 and began to learn the guitar at the age of four, receiving lessons from his father. The family moved to London in 1952, where he met and studied with Andres Segovia and on his recommendation entered the Accademia Musicale di Siena in Italy, where he studied on a scholarship for five years. At the request of his fellow students, he received the unpre?cedented honor of giving the first complete solo recital by a student of any instrument. Back in England he attended the Royal College of Music, where he studied piano and music theory.
John Williams made his London debut at the Wigmore Hall in 1958, then in Paris and Madrid, followed by visits to the Soviet Union and Japan. He became a regular visitor to the U.S. where he gained an exclusive recording contract with CBS Records (now Sony Classical). Many
of his recent record?ings, including John Williams Plays Vivaldi Concertos and the solo album Iberia, are best-sellers. John Williams now performs all over the world.
Many composers have written for him, including Thereby, Stephen Dodgson and Andre Previn.
In 1984 he performed the premiere of Vers Varc-en-ciel by the late Toro Takemitsu, with Sir Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Other premieres include Sculthorpe's Guitar Concerto No. 2 with the Australian Chamber Orchestra, Nigel Westlake's Antartica with the LSO and Kent Nagano, Richard Harvey's Concerto Antico with the Bournemouth Sinfonietta and Leo Brouwer's Guitar Concerto No. 4.
John Williams has appeared on many
series for Granada Television, including the television shows of Val Doonican, Eric Sykes and Nana Mouskouri and appeared with friends such as Julian Bream, Paco Pena, Barny Kessel, Itzhak Perlman and Andre Previn. He strongly believes that music should be accessible to everyone. He was one of the first classical musicians to play at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club, and in 1979 he formed the group SKY with four other musicians. After leaving SKY in 1994, John Williams divided his time between classical concerts and working from time to time with his group John Williams and Friends. Their CBS record The Guitar is the Song was released in 1983.
John Williams was Artistic Director of the South Bank Summer Music Festival for two years and in 1987 he was Artistic Director of the Melbourne Arts Festival. During 1992 he formed a new group, John Williams ATTACCA, constituting seven Australian and British musicians who toured the UK that summer, performing specially
commissioned contemporary music. During 1993 Williams worked extensively on a documentary film about his life and work, which was transmitted on London Weekend Television's South Bank Show. It is now available on CD, video and laser disk.
Recent recordings for Sony include music by Agustin Barrios Mangoro, The Mantis and the Moon with Australian duo partner Timothy Kain and John Williams Plays the Movies. The latest recording of music by Brouwer was released in September 1997.
Last season John Williams' schedule included recital tours of Germany and the U.S., a recital at the Bridgewater Hall, John Williams Plays the Movies at the Royal Festival Hall and visits to festivals in Darwin, Copenhagen and Liege. His schedule for the 199899 season includes visits to Japan and America, alongside extensive recitals throughout Europe.
This evening's recital marks John Williams' fourth appearance under UMS auspices.

String Quartet No. 2, in A Major
Juan Crisostomo de Arriaga Born January 27, 1806 in Rigoitia,
near Bilbao, Spain Died January 17, 1826 in Paris
Juan Crisostomo de Arriaga's musical talent was obvious at an early age. Accepted into the Paris Conservatoire at the age of fifteen (after very little formal training in his native Spain), he mastered the violin, as well as counterpoint and fugue, in two years. The following year, he was appointed tutor for a class in harmony and counterpoint at the Conservatoire. But just before his twentieth birthday Arriaga died of a chest ailment, with only one composition published during his shortened career: a set of three string quartets.
Arriaga's music was largely forgotten for the next several decades, but with the rise of Spanish nationalism at the end of the nineteenth century, his legendary precocious talent and tragic death inspired some Mozartian parallels. Over-zealous admirers of his works even dubbed him "El Mozart espanol" (The Spanish Mozart), though this is clearly a romanticization of both Arriaga's life and compositional style.
During his brief career, Arriaga com?posed several quasi-operatic works, some sacred choral pieces and chamber works, but his reputation rests almost exclusively on the three published string quartets. Though they are based on classical models and follow strongly in the tradition of Haydn and Mozart, the quartets reveal a unique compositional voice that combines the orthodoxy of Conservatoire training with personal elegance and flair.
The String Quartet No. 2, in A Major, begins very much in the classical mold, with the instrumental roles divided between melody, bass-line and inner-voice harmony. Arriaga's penchant for slightly unusual rhythmic effects appears early in the first theme, when the cello responds to the violin's
light-hearted statement with its own "lopsided" answer that extends for several unexpected beats. In traditional fashion the exposition moves to the dominant key, E Major, but at the start of the development, the harmony shifts abruptly to C Major -a median relationship more akin to Schubert. The remainder of the sonata-allegro movement unfolds according to classical expectations.
The theme of the second movement continues the textures heard at the opening of the first, with a melody that is almost banal in its simplicity and inner voices fill?ing in the harmonies. A short unison passage provides some contrast, but the real interest is in the variations that follow. Two of the variations demonstrate Arriaga's particular individuality. The fourth, played pizzicato, recalls the strumming of a Spanish guitar, lending the movement a hint of exoticism, while the sixth and final variation is a stately fugato that curiously seems to fade away rather than reach a cadential finality.
The composer gives the third movement a tempo marking of "scherzo", yet it has neither the vigor nor energy that character?izes Beethoven's scherzo movements, with which it is contemporary. Despite its label, this movement still has clear affinities with the late eighteenth-century minuet. The trio -usually an opportunity for some kind of textural or expressive contrast -continues in a similar vein, with only a change of key to indicate the new section.
The finale opens in curious fashion, with what sounds like a slow introduction leading into a rollicking rondo theme. But then both sections are repeated, disrupting the listener's expectations of classical form. Only at the conclusion does it become clear that the movement is a kind of extended binary form that uses tempo changes to mark the sections. Though an obvious departure from the classical formal model, this finale still retains its feeling of elegance and proportion.
String Quartet, Op. 3
Alban Berg
Born February 9, 1885 in Vienna
Died December 24, 1935 in Vienna
With the last of his Four Songs, Op. 2 (1909-10), the young Alban Berg signaled his com?plete break with functional tonality. His next published work, the String Quartet, Op. 3 (1910), would be his first to fully inhabit the new world of post-tonal writing, and indicated not only a new direction of musical expression, but also the emergence of a major compositional talent.
Berg told the philosopher Adorno that he wrote the quartet in a mood of defiance after a publisher had rejected his Piano Sonata. Yet he also apparently regarded it as a gift to his wife, arranging for its premiere by an ad hoc ensemble the week before their wedding in 1911. The first professional per?formance did not take place until 1923 at a chamber music festival in Salzburg, where it was received with rapturous approval by the audience.
Unlike Schoenberg, his teacher, Berg was not himself a string player, yet this quartet demonstrates a precocious eloquence in the contrapuntal intricacies of string writing. It is a difficult work to perform, employing the full range of specialized string techniques, such as playing on the fingerboard and near the bridge, harmonics, pizzicato, non-vibrato, and some very dramatic bowings. But per?haps the greatest difficulty is the constant and extreme rubato; rarely does a measure maintain a single tempo throughout.
This quartet has only two movements. Though the first is marked "Langsam" (Slow), there is sufficient activity and detail that it doesn't sound like a slow movement. In the exposition, Berg contracts the musical themes into brief motifs, which are then varied and developed continuously as they pass contrapuntally from one instrument to the next. This process of developing varia-
tion, and the work's extreme linearity, are one of the Schoenberg's more obvious influ?ences on his student's work. A short devel?opment section avoids the opening themes altogether, though they are further devel?oped in the heavily re-written recapitula?tion. The slower coda introduces new motifs that move downward -one way of suggest?ing finality without resorting to cadential harmony.
The second movement begins in a more aggressive and ferocious manner. Like the first movement, it uses a non-serial ordering of the twelve chromatic pitches as base material. Combining elements of both rondo form and sonata-allegro, it gradually elucidates thematic connections with the first movement, fleetingly at first, but with each episode the references become increas?ingly stronger.
String Quartet in g minor. Op. 27.
Edvard Grieg
Born June 15, 1843 in Bergen, Norway
Died Spetember 4, 1907 in Bergen, Norway
The career of Norway's most famous com?poser, Edvard Grieg, is marked by an ironic struggle between nationalistic pride and the desire to be respected as a serious composer. Grieg's early training at the conservatory in Leipzig left him embittered and cynical. He scorned the traditional disciplines and musical orthodoxy promoted by that insti?tution, seeking instead for an expressive musical voice that would capture the essen?tial quality of his Norwegian heritage. In his own words, "I longed to find a way to express something good in me that was a thousand miles away from Leipzig and its spirit." Yet he was dissatisfied with his com?positions that were most closely associated with Norwegian culture -in particular, his
incidental music for Sigurd Jorsalfar and Peer Gynt -labeling them "trashy occasional pieces." So much composing for popular tastes had led him to the verge of stagnation.
Despite Grieg's loathing for "that damned Leipzig conservatory, where I learned absolutely nothing," he felt the need to write a substantial, "respectable" work that would prove (if only to himself) his musical maturity, self-discipline and mastery of materials: the hallmarks of a conservatory education. He chose the string quartet as his medium, one of the most conventional and tradition-bound genres, and began work on it in the summer of 1877.
The task was all the more daunting, as Grieg was not himself a string player, and his prior experience with chamber composi?tion was limited to two violin sonatas and some abandoned sketches from his Leipzig years. (In later years he wrote a third violin sonata and a cello sonata.) Apart from these chamber pieces, his only full-length works were an early piano sonata, an unpublished symphony, and the famous Piano Concerto. He seems, then, to have set himself a particularly challenging task, and was aware of the effort it would involve. As he began work on the quartet, he confided to a close friend, "I will accomplish some?thing big, whatever the price." He finished the quartet a year later, claiming it was "not for the shallow public" and indicating he hoped it would mark a new direction for his music.
The quartet opens with a motto theme borrowed from one of Grieg's own songs, "The Minstrel's Song," played in a bold, uni?son statement by the whole group. A restless figure then launches the first theme group in this sonata-allegro movement. By having all the instruments periodically play double stops (two strings at the same time), Grieg effectively turns the quartet into a chamber orchestra, which he can then contrast with the smaller, more intimate passages of the
movement. The second theme, in the relative major key of B-flat, is related to the opening motto theme, and bears some resemblance to passages from the composer's Piano Concerto in its tunefuleness and melodic contour. The remainder of the sonata-allegro movement follows traditional procedures of development and recapitulation.
The second-movement, "Romanze," alternates a lilting B-flat melody with an "allegro agitato" in the parallel minor key that includes hints of the work's opening motto. In the third movement, the rhythmic vitality and earthy vigor demonstrate Grieg's continuing fascination with Norwegian folk culture and music, even as he strove to write a "serious" piece untainted by nationalist popularity. Again, a varied version of the motto begins the movement, leading into an earnest folk-dance that, while spirited, is somewhat humorless. Occasional light-hearted interludes provide some respite, but they are only brief.
The original motto, treated contrapun-tally, opens the final movement, before shift?ing into a lively "presto al saltarello" based on the sixteenth-century Italian dance. Near the end of the work, Grieg includes hints of various themes from earlier movements as a unifying device, and the motto returns one final time in the coda.
Program notes by Luke Howard.
Founded in 1964, the Guarneri String Quartet is an amazing achievement of four diverse person?alities, all original members, and is the longest continuing artistic collaboration of any quartet in the world. They have circled the globe countless times together, playing the world's most prestigious halls in North and South America, Mexico, Europe, the Far East, and Australia. In their
home town of New York City, they have maintained their recital programs at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (since 1965) and presented their special series, "Guarneri and Friends" at Lincoln Center (1973-1997.)
The international demand to hear the Guarneri String Quartet reflects the eminence in which the Quartet is held in North America. It was well defined by the Los Angeles Times in reviewing an all-Beethoven recital: "Beethoven was more than well-served. He was revitalized by playing that probed into dark corners and illuminated hidden mysteries. It was the sort of thing that can occur at any time but that rarely happens. It cannot be ordered or commanded; hard work can hasten its advent, but cannot guarantee its presence. It seemingly has to come from some other worldly source. Whatever its origin it had the Guarneri players firmly under its spell. They looked like hardworking musicians, but they played like angels."
The anatomy of a string quartet is best summed up by violinist Arnold Steinhardt in a paper he wrote on his memories after
twenty years with the Quartet: "There will be hours and hours of brute labor involved in the technical problems of intonation, ensemble, and the critical shadings of four like-sounding instruments. More important will be the uncharted process in which four people let their individual personalities shine while finding a unified quartet voice. There will be endless musings, discussions, and criticisms that will finally end up as an interpretation -that almost mystical amalgam of the four players that hovers somewhere in between their music stands."
The Quartet has been featured on many television and radio specials, documentaries and educational presentations both in North America and abroad. It was interviewed by Charles Kuralt on CBS' nationwide television program, Sunday Morning, in the summer of 1990. A full-length film entitled High Fidelity The Guarneri String Quartet was released nationally, to great critical and pub?lic acclaim, in the fall of 1989. (The film was directed and produced by Allan Miller who was also the directorproducer of the Academy Award-winning documentary, From Mozart to Mao, which dealt with Isaac Stern's visit to China.) The Quartet is also subject of several books including Quartet by Helen Drees Ruttencutter (Lippincott & Crowell, 1980) and The Art of Quartet Playing: The Guarneri in Conversation with David Blum (Alfred A. Knopf, 1986).
In 1982 Mayor Koch presented the Quartet with the New York City Seal of Recognition, an honor awarded for the first time. The Quartet is on the faculty of the University of Maryland. It was awarded Honorary Doctorate degrees by the University of South Florida (1976) and the State University of New York (1983). In 1992 the Guarneri String Quartet became the only quartet to receive the prestigious Award of Merit from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters.
The Guarneri String Quartet has recordings on the Philips and Arabesque labels. Their most recent release on the Arabesque label is that of Schubert's Quartets Nos. 13 in a minor, Op. 29, and 14 in d minor, D. 810 (Death and the Maiden). Several of their recordings on both RCA Red Seal and Philips have won international awards, including their recording of Juan Crisostomo de Arriaga's String Quartets Nos. 1-3 (Philips), which won the 1996 Deutsche Schallplattenkritik Award in Germany. Among their other award-winning record?ings are collaborations with such artists as Artur Rubinstein, Pinchas Zukerman; and Boris Kroyt and Mischa Schneider of the Budapest Quartet.
The Dallas Morning News summed up the Guarneri when it headlined the review "Quartet is Really Quite Perfect," and went on, "The men of the Guarneri are today's aristocrats of the chamber music world. There was never a forced phrase or a hint of harshness, while interpretatively there was a certainty and urbanity to the performances that made everything during the evening ring with inevitability. It is this sort of atten?tion to detail, this sort of preparation that tells the tale of a Guarneri performance. Yet for all the meticulousness of its perfor?mances, what one departs with is a flowing, ebbing impression of the music, not the thought that went into it. And where does that leave someone paid to write about such a concert Feeling like a fifth leg on a table -absolutely dispensable."
This performance marks the Guarneri String Quartet's twenty-eighth appearance under UMS auspices.

Bill T. Jones on We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor
We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor uses its aggressively narrative title to frame the non-narrative, non-linear aspects of the piece and to poke gentle fun at the audience's expectations.
There are many stories told, however, in this work. For me, the creator of the piece, the most compelling story is how a personal, eclectic vocabulary like my personal dance-vocabulary is born out of a dialogue with music or a series of "problems." It is then captured through video, codified and shaped by my rehearsal director, Janet Wong, and myself and then shared through arduous rehearsals with the company where it undergoes more transformations.
The work is first and foremost an opportunity for contemplation offered in the spirit of love for movement and a trust that many of our questions about diversity, history and the place of art in society can be answered eloquently through energetic, accomplished performers. This material that they have helped shape carries resonance and meaning for them.
The decor's two elements are at once a subtle commentary on the historical dis?course on the nature of form. It is also a demonstration of purely textural counter?point between that which is hard, metallic and gleaming and that which is soft, fuzzy and glowing with warm light. In discussion with scenic designer Bjorn Amelan, my con?cern was that the decor not overwhelm the dance, be transformed over time and exist almost like a non-human protagonist.
Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company exists to express several beliefs that I have. First, that movement is a constant source of wonder and a flexible, vital language that changes as we do. Second, that although the company has the intent to do more interdis?ciplinary projects in the future (works that
are adaptations of theater classics, works involving actors, singers and musicians and works dealing with new media), movement will remain central to what we do.
Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company is committed to diversity within its ranks and is in pursuit of an identity as a viable artistic entity, able to discourse freely within the world of dance and more generally the global cultural environment.
--Bill T. Jones
We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor
Known for his explicitly "issue" driven choreography focusing frequently on race and sexuality, Jones departs from any one particular agenda in this piece. We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor is an evocative, symbolic journey through the twentieth-century. Musical and narrative references abound and the fragments play with the viewer's sense of being transported through the trajectory of the century. While most of the movement is abstract, the choreography is very tied to the music.
We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor is the third Ann Arbor appearance by the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company. While watching the piece, you will see a variety of ethnicities, body-types and ages among the company dancers. Bill T. Jones has said, "The reason that the company is so varied is because I think that is true of the world. If you look at any gathering of people, proba?bly, there are short, tall, skinny, fat, black, white and Asian. There are a lot of combina?tions in our society. I want that to become the microcosm of my world." From this conglomeration of individuals, Jones creates a unified ensemble. You will notice how the piece continues Jones' interest in the indi?vidual's place within society, though in a less
explicitly narrative fashion than some of his previous works.
The piece is constructed in three parts without intermission. Stravinsky's Histoire du Soldat begins the work, which then moves to a transitional drumming piece by John Cage, and finally ends with a symphony for strings titled Stimmen (Voices) by Latvian composer Peteris Vasks.
The first section uses mechanized movement to reference the concerns with industrialism at the beginning of the century, but mixed within this first section are playful moments when the piece makes reference to the musical and popular dance trends of tango, waltz and ragtime.
The second section serves as a transition: the stage is dimly lit, the movement is slow and meditative. Two metal sculptures which are on stage for the first half are dismantled by the company and the symbolic image of a chrysalis floats across the back of the stage.
The final section is bright and optimistic, yet not without troubling moments when one dancer or a pair of dancers is isolated from the rest of the group. These moments bring up issues of identity and community: the continually shifting solos and duets are juxtaposed against the strong ensemble work.
At the end of the piece the chrysalis from the transition section re-emerges and clearly raises questions about re-birth and the coming millennium. As a whole, We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor is a piece that feels continually in motion, moving forward on the journey through the century, though it is clear that there are different paces, moments for action and moments for meditation.
Program note by Kate Remen.
The Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company was founded in 1982 and was the product of an eleven-year collaboration between Bill T. Jones and his late partner and fellow dancer Arnie Zane. A repertoire of more than fifty works, many of which have been described as a fusion of dance and theater, have been performed throughout the United States and in thirty foreign countries. Jones' choreography, while based in modern dance, also includes African dance idioms and has clearly been influenced by contact-improvisation, a popular form that he and Zane experimented with to create their memorable early duets. Bill T. Jones has created striking collaborations with visual artists, among them graffiti artist Keith Haring and fashion designer Willi Smith in Secret Pastures (1985) and sculptor Bjorn G. Amelan in We Set Out Early... Visibility Was Poor. Jones has received numerous awards for his performances, among them the MacArthur "Genius" Fellowship in 1994. To Jones, dance does not stop at the stage and it is not just a performance to be
enjoyed by the eyes and ears; dance is to be savored in the mind. It is an art form that should ask questions of its viewers, make them think, and make them question them?selves and their surroundings. This position is very clear to Michigan audiences who attended the company's two previous per?formances of Last Supper at Uncle Tom's Cabin (1990), which directly confronted the Harriet Beecher Stowe novel and its reper?cussions in race relations (presented by The Michigan Theater), or StillHere (1993), which wove the stories of people living with fatal illnesses into the choreography (pre?sented by UMS in 1995).
This performance marks the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company's third appearance under UMS auspices.
Bill T. Jones, a 1994 recipient of a MacArthur Fellowship, began his dance training at the State University of New York at Binghamton (SUNY), where he studied classical ballet and modern dance. After living in Amsterdam, Mr. Jones returned to SUNY, where he became co-founder of the American Dance Asylum in 1973. Before forming Bill T. Jones Arnie Zane Dance Company (then called Bill T. JonesArnie Zane & Company) in 1982, Mr. Jones choreographed and performed nationally and internationally as a soloist and duet company with his late partner, Arnie Zane.
In addition to creating over fifty works for his own company, Mr. Jones has received many commissions to create dances for modern and ballet companies including Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Boston Ballet, Lyon Opera Ballet, Berkshire Ballet, Berlin Opera Ballet and Diversions Dance Company, among others. He has also received numerous commissions to create new works for his own company, including
premieres for the Next Wave Festival at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and for St. Luke's Chamber Orchestra. In July 1995, Mr. Jones directed and performed in a collaborative work with Toni Morrison and Max Roach, Degga, at Alice Tully Hall, com?missioned by Lincoln Center's Serious Fun Festival.
During the past few years, Mr. Jones has also begun to work with several opera com?panies around the world. In 1990, he chore?ographed Sir Michael Tippet's New Year under the direction of Sir Peter Hall for the Houston Grand Opera and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. He conceived, co-directed and choreographed Mother of Three Sons, which was performed at the Munich Biennale, New York City Opera, and the Houston Grand Opera. He also directed Lost in the Stars for the Boston Lyric Opera. Mr. Jones' theater involvement includes co-directing Perfect Courage with Rhodessa Jones for Festival 2000, in 1990. In 1994, he directed Derek Walcott's Dream on Monkey Mountain for The Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN.
Television credits for Mr. Jones include Fever Swamp , which was filmed for PBS's "Great Performances" series, and Untitled for "Alive from Off Center," which aired nationally on PBS in July 1989. In early 1992, a documentary on Bill T. Jones' Last Supper at Uncle Tom's CabinThe Promised Land was aired on Dance in America as part of PBS's "Great Performances" series. CBS Sunday Morning broadcasted two fea?tures on Mr. Jones' work, once in 1993 and again in 1994. StillHere was co-directed for television by Bill T. Jones and Gretchen Bender and aired nationally and interna?tionally. The making of StillHere was also the subject of a documentary by Bill Moyers and David Grubin entitled "Bill T. Jones: StillHere with Bill Moyers."
In addition to the MacArthur Fellowship, Mr. Jones has received several other prestigious awards. In 1979, Mr. Jones was granted the
Creative Artists Public Service Award in Choreography, and in 1980,1981 and 1982, he was the recipient of Choreographic Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts. In 1986, Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane were awarded a New York Dance and Performance ("Bessie") Award for their Joyce Theater season, and in 1989, Mr. Jones was awarded another "Bessie" for his work, D-Man in the Waters. Mr. Jones, along with his collaborators Rhodessa Jones and Idris Ackamoor received an "Izzy" Award for Perfect Courage in 1990. Mr. Jones was honored with the Dorothy B. Chandler Performing Arts Award for his innovative contributions to performing arts in 1991. In 1993, Mr. Jones was presented with the Dance Magazine Award. Mr. Jones received an honorary doctorate from Bard College in 1996 and The Art Institute of Chicago in 1998.
Mr. Jones' memoirs, Last Night on Earth, were published by Pantheon Books in September 1995. An in-depth look at the work of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane can be found in Body Against Body: The Dance and Other Collaborations of Bill T. Jones and Arnie Zane, published by Station Hill Press. Mr. Jones is also proud to have contributed to the foreword of Philip Trager's book of photographs entitled, Dancers. Dance, a new children's book by Bill T. Jones and photog?rapher Susan Kuklin, will be published by Hyperion Books in the fall of 1998.
Arnie Zane (1948-1988) was a native New Yorker born in the Bronx and educated at the State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton. In 1971, Arnie Zane and Bill T. Jones began their long collaboration in choreography and in 1973 formed the American Dance Asylum in Binghamton with Lois Welk. Mr. Zane's first recognition in the arts came as a photographer when he received a Creative Artists Public Service (CAPS) Fellowship in 1973. Mr. Zane was
the recipient of a second CAPS Fellowship in 1981 for choreography, as well as two Choreographic Fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts (1983 and 1984). In 1980, Mr. Zane was co-recipi?ent, with Bill T. Jones, of the German Critics Award for his work, Blauvelt Mountain. Rotary Action, a duet with Mr. Jones, was filmed for television, co-produced by WGBH-TV Boston and Channel 4 in London.
The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater commissioned a new work from Mr. Zane and Bill T. Jones, How to Walk an Elephant, which premiered at Wolftrap in August 1985. Mr. Zane (along with Mr. Jones) received a 1985-86 New York Dance and Performance ("Bessie") Award for Choreographer Creator.
Bjorn G. Amelan, Set Designer, was born in Haifa, Israel in 1955. After much traveling as a child, Mr. Amelan settled in Paris, France from 1973 to 1993. Bjorn Amelan was the partner of the late fashion designer Patrick Kelly from 1983 until Mr. Kelly passed away on January 1,1990.

Eric Bradley spent his early formative years in Plainwell, an island city in rural Michigan. Early involvement in vocal music and the?ater led to exploring movement through solo improvisation. Formal study regimens in dance were pursued at the University of Michigan (1985-1987) and then later at the Julliard School where he received his degree in 1991. Prior to joining the Bill T. Jones Arnie Zane Dance Company he worked mainly with CreachKoester and Sarah Skaggs Dance. Bradley continues to experi?ment with his own movementmaterial and with different training techniques and expe?riences.

Daniel Russell-Kubert was born amidst prairie dogs and sorghum fields on the plains of Nebraska. Somehow along the way,
while wreaking havoc among the Willa Cather-ian inhabitants, Daniel formulated the notion that he should perform on Broadway in the feline romp, Cats. On his way to Broadway via regional productions of shows such as South Pacific, Oklahoma, and Hello Dolly, Daniel was introduced to Mr. Jones while in the Houston Grand Opera production of New Year, choreo?graphed by Mr. Jones. From that point on Daniel's dreams of grease paint and whiskers shifted to dreams of shape, form, and content. In 1992, Mr. Kubert found himself invited to work with the Bill T. JonesArnie Zane Dance Company. This is now Mr. Kubert's fifth year with the company (not including the year of absence when Daniel's brain stopped working and he flew the proverbial coop for San Francisco) and the place he feels most at home.

Advisory Committee
The Advisory Committee is a 48-member organiza?tion which raises funds for UMS through a variety of projects and events: an annual auction, the cre?ative "Delicious Experience" dinners, the UMS Cookbook project, the Season Opening Dinner, and the Ford Honors Program Gala. The Advisory Committee has pledged to donate $175,000 this current season. In addition to fundraising, this hard-working group generously donates valuable and innumerable hours in assisting with the educa?tional 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.
Group Tickets
Many thanks to all of you groups who have joined the University Musical Society for an event in past seasons, and a hearty welcome to all of our new friends who will be with us in the coming years. The group sales program has grown incredibly in recent years and our success is a direct result of the wonder?ful leaders who organize their friends, families, con?gregations, students, and co-workers and bring them to one of our events.
Last season over 8,300 people, from as far away as California, came to UMS events as part of a group, and they saved over $40,000 on some of the most popular events around! Many groups who booked their tickets early found themselves in the enviable position of having the only available tickets to sold out events like Wynton Marsalis, Itzhak Perlman, David Daniels, Evgeny Kissin, and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
This season UMS is offering a wide variety of events to please even the most discriminating tastes, many at a fraction of the regular price. Imagine yourself surrounded by 10 or more of your closest friends as they thank you for getting great seats to the hottest shows in town. It's as easy as picking up the phone and calling UMS Group Sales at 734.763.3100.
Ford Honors Program
The Ford Honors program is made possible by a generous grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund 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, with subsequent honorees being Jessye Norman and Garrick Ohlsson.
This season's Ford Honors Program will be held Saturday, May 8. The recipient of the 1999 UMS Distinguished Artist Award will be announced in January.
Thank You!
Great performances--the best in music, theater and dance--are pre?sented by the University Musical Society because of the much-needed and appreciated gifts of UMS supporters, who constitute the members of the Society.
