Thanks very much for attending this UMS performance and for supporting the performing arts in our community. UMS' 1999-2000 season is one of our best ever, and I hope I'll see you at some other performances. A complete listing of the season begins on page 29.
To be able to bring performances like this one to Ann Arbor takes a lot of people work?ing together as a team. I'm privileged to work with an outstanding Board of Directors, Senate, Advisory Committee, and staff, all of whose names are listed on pages 14-15.
It is the staff who works day in and day out to assure that you are able to see the world's best performing artists. I firmly believe that UMS has the finest staff of any performing arts presenting organization in the country. The programming staff works with artists and artists' managers to design a diverse, exciting, and high-quality season, which this year features over ninety performances. The production staff looks after the wellbeing of our artists and makes the performances look sharp and run smoothly. The education and audience development team, working with over fifty community partners, designs and manages more than 175 events to enhance the audiences' understanding and apprecia?tion of our artists and their work. People
learn about our programs through many different media thanks to the efforts of our marketing staff, which last season led UMS to an all-time record in ticket sales. Our box office staff has a well-deserved reputation of providing outstanding personalized service. The internal operation of UMS--finances, human resources, space, planning, etc.--are the purview of our skilled administrative team. And then there's the development team that each year raises 41 of our income, which is necessary to meet costs not covered by ticket sales. In the 1998-99 season, this figure was $2.3 million.
Speaking of development, this year UMS celebrates the tenth anniversary of Catherine Arcure's service as Director of Development. In these ten years, Cathy's department has always exceeded its annual fundraising goal and has nearly tripled the number of donors to UMS. Our overall financial health has
improved dramatically in the past decade, and Cathy's fundraising successes with indi?viduals as well as foundations, corporations, and government agencies have been key to this turnaround. Cathy has also been instru?mental in developing the Advisory Committee into an outstanding volunteer organization that raises over $200,000 a year for UMS through the Ford Honors Program, Season Opening Party, an annual auction, and other special projects. Then there is Cathy's personal commitment to serve each and every member of UMS.
Among Cathy's proudest achievements is BRAVO!, the 224-page cookbook which UMS unveiled on September 17. More than 100 volunteers, under the leadership of Mary Ann Daane and Anne Glendon, worked on this publication for over two years. What better way for Cathy to combine two of her loves, cooking and UMS, than to create a vehicle for people everywhere to enjoy the legends, lore, and recipes from 120 years of UMS -and for UMS to have a source of revenue for many years to come. For more information on BRAVO!, please see p. 37.
Thank you, Cathy, for your outstanding contribution to UMS and to our community.
I'd like to know your thoughts about this performance. I'd also like to learn from you about anything we can do at UMS to make your concertgoing experience the best possi?ble. If we don't see each other in the lobby, please call my office at 734.647.1174, drop me a note, or send me an e-mail message at
Kenneth C. Fischer, President

The goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is 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 leadership, coupled with a devoted community, has placed UMS in a league of internationally-recognized perform?ing arts presenters. Indeed, Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influen?tial arts presenters in the United States in 1999. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for its rich and varied history, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in the upcoming millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stimulate 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 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 mem?bers also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS 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 traditional and contemporary work from the full spectrum of the performing arts -internationally renowned recitalists and

orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, perform?ance artists, opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts over ninety performances and more than 175 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that gathers to enjoy world-class events in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, the
Power Center for the Performing Arts, the Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, and the Detroit Opera House.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many Univer?sity units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization, which supports itself through ticket sales, corporate and individual contri?butions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
Throughout its 120-year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150-voice Choral Union is especially well known for its definitive performances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Six 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 Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem, 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, inaugurating the partner?ship with a performance of Britten's War Requiem, and continuing with performances of the Berlioz Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius and Verdi's Requiem. During the 1996-97 season, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include performances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining
with them in a rare presentation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand).
In the past two seasons, the Choral Union has given acclaimed concert presentations of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra and musical-theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. A 72-voice chorus drawn from the larger choir has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solenelle, the Mozart Requiem and other works, and the Choral Union Chamber Chorale recently presented "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods, at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
During the 1998-99 season, the Choral Union performed in three major subscription series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, including performances of Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem and Rachmaninoff's The Bells, both conducted by Neeme Jarvi, and Kodaly's Psalmus Hungaricus, conducted by the legendary Gennady Rozhdestvensky. Other programs included Handel's Messiah with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, and Carmina Burana with the Toledo Symphony.
During the current season, the Choral Union will again appear in three series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra: the first two, conducted by Neeme Jarvi, include per?formances of Shostakovitch's Symphony No. 13 (Babi Yar) followed by Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 paired with Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms. The last of these three series will fea?ture performances of John Adams' Harmonium, conducted by the composer. The women of the chorus will also perform Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the Ann Arbor Symphony, and sixty singers will join the Gabrieli Consort & Players for an Advent program based on the music of Praetorius. A highlight of the season will be a performance on Palm Sunday afternoon, April 16,2000, of J. S. Bach's
monumental St. Matthew Passion with the Ann Arbor Symphony in Hill Auditorium, conducted by Thomas Sheets.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mix?ture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, call 734.763.8997 or e-mail
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, the 4,163-seat Hill Auditorium has served as a showplace for a variety of important debuts and long rela?tionships throughout the past eighty-six years. With acoustics that highlight everything from the softest notes of vocal recitalists to the grandeur of the finest orchestras, 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 performing Beethoven's 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 wheel?chair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
Hill Auditorium is slated for renovation in the coming years. Developed by Albert Kahn and Associates (architects of the original concert hall) and leading theatre and acousti?cal consultants, the renovation plans include an elevator, expanded bathroom facilities, air conditioning, and other improvements.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, pre?sented 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 devel?opment of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher-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 1,390-seat Power Center is more than seventy-two feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features 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 vaude?villemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost approxi?mately $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 will be completed by 2003.
In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater will open the doors of a new 200-seat screen?ing room addition, as well as additional rest-room facilities, which have been built onto the existing 1928 structure.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 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 in 1950 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 ded?ication, 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 contemplation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
In 1926, construction was being discussed for the Women's League, the female coun?terpart to the all-male Michigan Union. Gordon Mendelssohn of Detroit seized the opportunity to support the inclusion of a theatre in the plans and building of the Woman's League, and donated $50,000 in 1926 to establish the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, stipulating that the theatre would
always bear his mother's name. UMS 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 the?atre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with a new programmatic initiative to pres?ent song in recital, the superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has become a recent venue addition to UMS' roster and the home of the Song Recital series.
Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 fol?lowing 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 musicians and
an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the 2,800-seat facility 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 collaboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia
A Full House
Power Center 1,390
Entertainment, formed a part?nership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 perform?ers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partner?ships 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 land?mark is the box office and administrative location for UMS. 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-12:30 p.m. weekdays when classes are in session and most Saturdays from 10:15-10:45 a.m.

The 1999-2000 Dance Series celebrates the women of today's modern dance and dance-theatre. In addition, it celebrates the spirit of innovation and exploration these women embody as they continue to break down
labels and barri?ers into music-theatre, and that wonderfully label-less, late-twentieth-cen-
tury genre: the interdisciplinary work.
If ever there were an art form that has been dominated by women, it is modern dance. Pioneering individuals in the first half of this century such as Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham, Ruth St. Denis, Pearl Primus, Doris Humphrey, Katherine Dunham and Mary Wigman changed the perception of the dancer's female body from an idealized ballerina performing chore?ography by men into an expressive, liberated individual with her own sto?ries to tell. These and many other women dancers and choreographers have had a profound impact on dance in this century, and on the larger world of dance-theatre.
At UMS, 1999-2000 showcases contemporary women who have inherited this creative legacy of expression from their artistic "moth?ers." Some works are "pure" dance while others celebrate the boundless blurring of genres, merging movement and storytelling with theatre and vocal, chamber and electronic music, producing living works of art that
speak to the audience through multi?ple artistic voices. With the exception of the Lyon Opera Ballet, each project has a visionary woman at the helm, a woman whose work exhibits the diver?sity and breadth of contemporary women's artistic expression.
So why does Laurie Anderson open the "dance" season
To many, Laurie Anderon's work and career embody the spirit of those women who first trailblazed their way onto modern dance stages. While "labeled" a performance artist, she has consistently engaged her audiences in new ways of thinking about what music and music-theatre can be. Laurie Anderson continues to intrigue, entertain and challenge us with her multi-media presentations. Her artis?tic career has cast her in roles as vari?ous as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, ventrilo?quist, electronics whiz, vocalist and instrumentalist. She leads us with her pathbreaking use of technology and her untiring exploration of new cre?ative tools. In other words, she shows us the future.
For her, a "label" will never do... and thus, she is a potent inspiration to a whole series devoted to women in dance, dance-theatre and music-theatre.

Songs and Stories from Moby Dick
by Laurie Anderson
I began to work on this project because a multimedia producer was making a series for high school kids about books. He was worried that books are disappearing and he wanted to do something that would get kids interested in reading. So he asked several artists to pick their favorite books and write monologues about why they liked them.
I chose Moby Dick. Although pieces of Melville's text have cropped up in some of my songs and films over the years, I hadn't really read the whole book since high school. And I was a bit nervous. I had a vague recollection of being very bored by a lot of the whaling details and technical paraphernalia. I also remember thinking that the captain and his obsession with the whale was a bit over the top, too fantastic, too Shakespearean.
Then I read it again. And it was a com?plete revelation. Encyclopedic in scope, the book moved through ideas about history, philosophy, science, religion and the natural world towards Melville's complex and dark conclusions about the meaning of life, fear and obsession. Being a somewhat dark per?son myself, I fell in love with the idea that the mysterious thing you look for your whole life will eventually eat you alive.
The project for high school kids never materialized but I read Moby Dick five more times in a row. I began to hear it as music. The rambling, rolling sentences, the lapses into iambic pentameter, the lyrical poems all mixed with the 'thee's' and 'thou's' of anoth?er time. And the stories On one level, Moby Dick is a magnificent collection of essays and short stories about the night sky, the behavior of polar bears, theories about the origin of the universe, all entwined with
countless bits of information about rope and weather and oars and the many objects of a lost nineteenth-century world.
Call Me Whatever
Moby Dick is also a tour deforce in narrative style. With most books, it takes a few chap?ters to identify the author's voice. For me, the first three words ("Call me Ishmael") are among the strangest in the book. As the book unfolds, it becomes virtually impossi?ble to find the author. He's hundreds of people: accountant, botanist, lawyer, philosopher, dreamer, preacher, historian. These narrative styles and forms of address morph rapidly. And it's this daring approach to narrative voices that I've found most exciting and original about the book. Imagistic, concise and associative, Melville built his world and inhabited it with a cast of the living and the dead. Spinoza, Noah, Job and Jonah sailed on the doomed Pequod just as much as Ahab, Ishmael, Pip, Queequeg and the crazy cook.
Is Moby Dick a Tragedy
Of course, from page one we know the ship will go down. Everything relentlessly moves to that vanishing point. But for me the Pequod is more like the Mayflower than the Titanic. When the Titanic sinks it's spectacu?lar, it sinks expensive technology, money, power and savoir faire. It's a perversely satis?fying experience, like blowing up the White House in Independence Day. But when the Pequod sinks, it takes a whole universe down with it while somehow building a new one.
So what does Melville have to say to late twentieth-century Americans Obsessive, technological, voluble and in search of the transcendent, we're a lot like our nine?teenth-century forbears. Melville's search for meaning is alternately frustrating and illu?minating, multilayered and elusive, like the great white whale he searches for. For me, a
key question is asked, almost as an after?thought, at the end of Father Mapple's famous sermon, "So what is a man if he outlives the lifetime of his God" Yes, really. What do you do when you no longer believe in the things that have driven you How do you go on
Translation and Invention
Translating a complex and classic literary text into a multimedia production is a com?pletely new kind of project for me. I've attended enough meetings of the Melville Society and read enough issues of the newsletter over the years to know that what?ever I did with the book would inevitably have many gaps. Eventually I decided not to try to represent the characters but to try to catch the spirit of the book and some of
I fell in love with the idea that the mysterious thing you look for your whole life will eventually eat you alive."
Melville's ideas that I find the most chal?lenging.
Visually, I've tried to create several lev?els for the action by making a set where characters can emerge and then be reab-sorbed into a more abstract place, a device I've used in pieces like The Nerve Bible. The images themselves -words, water, paper, flowing textures, gritty machine fire and constellations -are meant not so much to conjure a place as to create a parallel dream world as well as to provide visual counter?point to the sound.
As for characters, the performers in Songs and Stories... shift through many roles and voices; sometimes they're readers,
sometimes sailors, sometimes commentators or critics. Of course there is no way to tell the whole story in an evening. My goal is to translate some of my favorite parts of the book into music and images that suggest the flavor and strangeness and beauty of Melville's world. And finally to make a world of my own where ideas and obses?sions take a new sensual form.
So how much of this show is actually Melville's text
According to my very fast computer, approximately ten percent. Sometimes I picked my favorite passages and left them alone. ("Seat thyself sultanically among the moons of Saturn...") Other times I used only an idea or phrase to build a song. ("Because in all men there reside certain
properties, occult and wondrous
and hidden.") Other times, in the spirit of Melville's digressions, I just invented things and added whatever I felt like adding. In writing lyrics and words that would be singable and sayable, I've used several methods to shorten the words and make them resonate when spoken
aloud. In addition to the discursive quality of the text, much of Melville's language rings very differently for us than for his con?temporaries who knew their Bibles better. When Melville wrote "Consider the subtle?ness of the sea...and how its most dreaded creatures glide underwater carrying on eter?nal warfare since the world began," this no doubt alerted his readers that he was mak?ing a dark rhyme with "Consider the lilies of the field..." from the Sermon on the Mount, a message that expressed the polar opposite meaning, God not as benevolent provider but as prolific inventor of malevolent crea?tures.
The World of Sound
To start with, obviously Melville was unaware that whales can talk and sing. He compared them to the "tongueless croco?diles of the Nile" and most of his descrip?tions of them are visual or spiritual. In fact Moby Dick is a curiously silent book. For every description of sound there are hun?dreds of visual descriptions. Instead, the music is all in the words and the way they riff and trip, skip and lumber. The only actual instrument is a lone tambourine.
I once wrote to Thomas Pynchon and asked for his permission to write an opera based on Gravity's Rainbow. I didn't really expect an answer from this famously silent man. However, a few weeks later a letter arrived. He graciously complimented me on my idea and said of course I could do it; his only condition was that the whole opera be scored for solo banjo. Some people have the nicest way of saying no.
Musically I've tried to include many of the natural sounds of Melville's world, the clicking patterns of the sperm whale's lan?guage, the creaks and groans of a ship, wild winds. Many of the basic tracks were recorded with a small ensemble of musi?cians -Joey Baron on drums, Skiili Sverrisson on bass and sampled sounds, myself on keyboards and samples, with additional touches from Peter Scherer and Bill Frisell. These sounds were heavily processed with digital niters. The live string instruments that join these mixes violin, bass, charango and guitar -are processed in similar ways. As usual, many of the live vocals are also run through niters.
The Talking Stick
The Talking Stick is a new instrument that I designed in collaboration with a team from Interval Research and Bob Bielecki. It is a wireless instrument that can access and replicate any sound. It works on the princi-
pie of granular synthesis. This is the tech?nique of breaking sound into tiny segments, called grains, and then playing them back in different ways. The computer rearranges the sound fragments into continuous strings or random clusters which are played back in overlapping sequences to create new tex?tures. The grains are very short, a few hun-dredths of a second. Granular synthesis can sound smooth or choppy depending on the size of the grain and the rate at which they're played. The grains are like film frames. If you slow them down enough you begin to hear them separately.
Many of the voices in Moby Dick are phantom-like. The Talking Stick is a physical representation of the disembodied voice as well as an extremely physical, digital descen?dant of turntables.
Melville's Bible
When I told a friend I was working on a project based on Moby Dick he just about went crazy. He said, "Moby DickV. Moby Dick7." He said he had something for me and a few days later he brought over a big box. Inside was Melville's Bible, which Melville bought just before he began writing Moby Dick. It was filled with pencil notes and markings, many of which his wife had apparently erased (their relationship being far from idyllic).
My friend, who had gotten the Bible at Sotheby's, had checked through the Morgan Library and their contacts with the FBI, to see if it would be possible to reconstruct the passages that had been erased. The consen?sus was that this would have been possible if the marks had been erased thirty years ago, but not a hundred and fifty. So I went combing through the Bible with a magnify?ing glass, looking for little marks, signs, any?thing that might have something to do with a whale.
And then I found it. Isaiah 27:1. "In that day the Lord with his sore and great
and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the drag?on that is in the sea." Next to this verse was a check mark and a long squiggle. And I thought, 'That's it! The whale is his snake and the ocean is his garden, the place where he works out good and evil.'
Songs and Stories from Moby Dick is in the end a kind of palimpsest, a piece of paper that is constantly being erased reinter?preted and re-shaped through many differ?ent lenses and filters. It has been a fascinat?ing frustrating and wild journey for me, try?ing first to understand the book and then to bring it to life in a new way. Melville dedi?cated Moby Dick to his friend Nathaniel Hawthorne whose approval he sought throughout the writing of the book. Disappointed by Hawthorne's reaction, Melville dedicated his next book to a moun?tain. Songs and Stories from Moby Dick is dedicated to Herman Melville and to his search for the unknowable.
Special thanks to Bill T. Jones for his ideas on movement; Clifford Ross for the loan of Melville's Bible; Rande Brown for her tireless and inventive input; Michael Morris for his continued support; Jeff Halpern, Benny Diggs and Steve Lutvakfor vocal coaching; Arto Lindsay, Tomand Andy, and Greg Cohen for musical input; Lou Reed for his guidance, forbearance and love.
Laurie Anderson, one of the pre?miere performance artists in the world, has consistently intrigued, entertained and challenged audi?ences with her multimedia pre?sentations. Anderson's artistic career has cast her in roles as various as visual artist, composer, poet, photographer, filmmaker, ventriloquist, electronics whiz, vocalist and instrumentalist.
Laurie Anderson's "O Superman" launched her recording career, rising to number two on the British pop charts and subsequently appearing on Big Science, the
first of seven albums for Warner Bros., including Mister Heartbreak, United States Live, Strange Angels, Bright Red, and the soundtrack to the feature film Home of the Brave. Laurie is currently recording her first release for Nonesuch Records, Songs and Stories from Moby Dick, while her award winning CD-ROM Puppet Motel has just been re-released by Voyager.
Ms. Anderson has toured the US and the world numerous times with shows rang?ing from simple spoken word performances to elaborate multimedia events. Prior to the current production of Songs and Stories from Moby Dick, she toured the world with both her one person show The Speed of Darkness and her major multimedia stage production The Nerve Bible.
Ms. Anderson's work as a visual artist was most recently on view in June 1998 in her major installation Dal Vivo at the Prada Gallery in Milan. Her work has also been exhibited at the Guggenheim Museum in Soho as well as in Europe. Abrams will pub?lish the first major career retrospective of Ms. Anderson's work in a volume that will be released in early 2000. The Sean Kelly Gallery, New York, represents Ms. Anderson's visual artwork.
Ms. Anderson has created numerous videos and films, and has contributed music to films by Wim Wenders and Jonathan Demme and dance pieces by Bill T. Jones, Trisha Brown, Molissa Fenley and others. She has created pieces for National Public Radio, The BBC and Expo '92 in Seville. In 1997 she curated the two-week Meltdown festival at Royal Festival Hall in London. Dennis Russell Davies and the American Composers Orchestra recently commis?sioned Ms. Anderson to write an original musical work for Orchestra. The piece, which is based on the life of Amelia Earhart, will have its world premiere at Carnegie Hall in February 2000.
Recognized worldwide as a leader in the pathbreaking use of technology in the arts, Ms. Anderson is currently working with Interval Research Corporation, a research and development laboratory founded by Paul Allen and David Liddle, in the explo?ration of new creative tools, including the Talking Sticks seen and heard in this perfor?mance.
These performances of Songs and Stories from Moby Dick represent the debut perfor?mances of Laurie Anderson under UMS aus?pices.

Sunday Evening, October 3, 1999 at 6:30 Michigan League Ballroom Ann Arbor, Michigan
Season Opening Dinner
I'll Be Seeing You:
Love Songs of World War II
Andrea Marcovicci will announce her selections from the stage.
Special thanks to Jorge Solis and Bank One, Michigan for their sponsorship of this event.
Andrea Marcovicci, "torch singer, spellbinder, heartbreaker" {People), was hailed as the "most Sinatra-like" of the new generation of cabaret performers by Life magazine. "The most throbbingly irresistible voice in cabaret" enthused New York magazine, while Stephen Holden wrote in The New York Times, "Andrea Marcovicci has an incandescent enthusiasm and a masterly balance between poignancy and wit."
Andrea Marcovicci began her career in the entertainment world in 1971 as an actress on the daytime television series Love is a Many Splendored Thing. She made her Broadway debut with Howard Kell in Ambassador, the musical adapta?tion of the novel by Henry James. Ms. Marcovicci received rave reviews for her performances in the leading roles of the American Conservatory Theater produc?tions of St. Joan (1989), Burn This (1990) and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1991), break?ing every existing attendance record for A.C.T. She also appeared as Carmen in Frank D. Gilroy's play Any Given Day, which had its world premiere at Longacre Theater in 1993. Most recently, she starred in the Reprise! production of Finian's Rainbow in Los Angeles.
Ms. Marcovicci pursues an active cabaret and concert schedule to the delight of loyal audiences throughout the country. She made her San Francisco Pops debut before an audience of 5,000 in the summer of 1991 and followed that up with an appearance the next summer. In November 1993, Ms. Marcovicci made her Carnegie Hall solo debut with the American Symphony Orchestra before a sold-out audience. In February 1995 she appeared again with the American Symphony in her one-woman show "I'll Be Seeing You:
Love Songs of World War II" at Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall. The orchestra was under the direction of Ms. Marcovicci's longtime musical director, Glenn Mehrbach. She has been a guest artist with orchestras in Minneapolis, Chicago, Milwaukee, Ft. Worth, Naples, San Jose, Santa Rosa and Costa Mesa, and made her Australian debut at the Melbourne Arts Festival in October 1998.
Andrea Marcovicci has performed at the White House and, in recognition of her accomplishments in the arts, received an honorary doctorate from Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. She debuted "Some Other Time," a celebra?tion of the songs of Mabel Mercer, at the Oak Room of New York's legendary Algonquin Hotel in the fall of 1997. This engagement marked Ms. Marcovicci's tenth anniversary at the Algonquin. For her eleventh season she performed an evening of Noel Coward, which was commissioned by the New York
Philharmonic and given its debut at Lincoln Center in April 1998.
She makes her home in Los Angeles with her husband, actor Daniel Reichert, and daughter, Alice.
Tonight's performance marks Andrea Marcovicci's debut under VMS auspices.
Glenn Mehrbach wrote the book, music and lyrics for Four Love (Theatre of N.O.T.E.), A Musical Therapy, Portraits and Cabaret Godot (Theatre West), music and lyrics for Bum's Rush (Theatre of N.O.T.E.), and co-com?posed the scores to The Magic Prison: Emily Dickinson in Words and Music (Theatre West) and Yearbook: The High School Musical (published by Dramatic Publishing).
As conductor and arranger for Andrea Marcovicci, Mr. Mehrbach has appeared on the Tonight Show, at Camegie Hall and Town Hall in New York City, and is represented as a composer on her albums New Words and What Is Love. With Ms. Marcovicci, he has arranged for and conducted major symphony orches?tras, and has produced andor arranged each of Andrea's nine CDs.
Mr. Mehrbach's compositions have been heard at Symphony Space and Carnegie Hall. His songs have been sung by Andrea Marcovicci, Barbara Fasano, Marilyn Volpe, Michael Bonnabel, The Toronto Gay Men's Chorus and many others throughout the country. He is a member of ASCAP, by whom he has been granted awards for his work in musical theatre and cabaret.
Tonight's performance marks Glenn Mehrbach's debut under UMS auspices.

Nordic Coast
Villem Kapp
Born September 7, 1913 in Suure-Jaani,
Estonia Died March 24, 1964 in Tallinn, Estonia
Villem Kapp's Nordic Coast dates from 1958. The score calls for men's chorus and an orchestra of two flutes and piccolo, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons and contrabassoon, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, snare drum, cymbals, bass drum, harp, and strings.
Villem Kapp was part of a musical dynasty in his native Estonia, one that began with his uncle Artur Kapp and included his cousin Eugen Kapp, perhaps the most noted of the family outside their native land.
Villem studied first with his uncle, then went on to the Tallinn Conservatory, taking a professorship after he graduated in 1944, and remained in that post the rest of his life. He wrote in a variety of genres, including two symphonies, four cantatas (of which Nordic Coast is one), music for piano and for various chamber ensembles. His opera Lembitu, which recounts the tale of a medieval Estonian hero, brought him the widest acclaim.
The theme of that opera runs parallel to that of Nordic Coast, though the meaning of the latter is cloaked in metaphorical words. For centuries, Estonia has been a land at the crossroads, overrun at various times by Germans, Swedes, and Russians. In Kapp's own time, he saw his country whip-sawed between Nazi and Soviet armies; he did not live long enough to see Estonia return to an independent republic.
The poetry, by Kersti Merilaas, dwells on the theme of water pounding against rock: "The waves vent all their fury, but the rock stays fast." To set these evocative words, Kapp employs a full-blooded, urgent style, not modern in any significant sense, but apt
to its subject. With Estonia then firmly under the Soviet thumb, an overt expression of independence might have been denied performance, while Kapp's more guarded assertions carried his message just as surely to those inclined to listen.
Holberg Suite, Op. 40
(Aus Holberg's Zeit)
Edvard Hagerup Grieg
Bom June 15, 1843 in Bergen, Norway
Died September 4, 1907 in Bergen
Edvard Grieg wrote the first version of his Holberg Suite for piano, in the summer of 1884. He arranged it for strings later that year, and conducted the first performance in Bergen, on March 13, 1885.
Ludvig Holberg was a seventeenth-cen?tury Norwegian playwright. While his repu?tation never carried far beyond his native country, he was always revered there, and in December 1884, his hometown of Bergen set out to honor the 200th anniversary of his birth with the building of a statue and a concert.
Grieg, a native of the same town and Norway's most prominent composer, was a natural choice to compose the music for a cantata. He was loathe to write for such ceremonial occasions, and he grumbled about the cantata while he was at work on it, and put it aside after conducting the first performance. He refused to give it an opus number or to include it in the list of his works.
Much more to his liking was an unoffi?cial piece he wrote at the same time, a piano suite that mimicked the forms of the Baroque period. It is not quite certain that he wrote the piano version first and soon after arranged it for string orchestra. In any case, it has circulated most widely in its string-orchestra version, and the writing for strings is knowing and euphonious.
The movements include a sarabande, that was traditionally included in the seven?teenth-century orchestral suite; as well as three other dances, a gavotte, an air, and a rigaudon, that find equivalents in the suites of Bach and Handel. The prelude, more commonly found in keyboard music, is a ceremonial opener that creates the clangor of a full orchestra through spacious and careful scoring.
Symphony No. 13, Op. 113
(Babi Yar)
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in Leningrad, Russia
Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
Kiril Kondrashin conducted the first perfor?mance of Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 in the Great Hall of the Moscow Conservatory on December 18, 1962. The score calls for two flutes and piccolo, three oboes (one doubling English horn), three clar?inets (one doubling E-flat clarinet and bass clarinet), two bassoons and contrabassoon, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle, tambourine, snare drum, wood block, castanets, cymbals, bass drum, tam-tam, whip, glockenspiel, xylo?phone, chimes, celesta, piano, harp, strings, bass solo, and men's chorus.
Over his long career, Shostakovich wove a slalom course around the constant changes in Soviet politics. During the brief periods when the party line dictated free expression, he composed works as daring as his Symphony No. 4. When the cultural establishment decreed strict conformity, he toed the line, or encoded his true feelings, as in the outwardly apologetic but inwardly subversive Symphony No. 5.
Symphony No. 13 was born during the cultural thaw of the early 1960s, the third
period of de-Stalinization since the dicta?tor's death in 1953. The poet Yevgeny Yevtushenko was one of the first to test the waters with his poem "Babi Yar," an indict?ment both of Nazi atrocities on Russian soil during World War II and of continuing anti-Semitism in the Soviet Union.
The title of Yevtushenko's poem refers to the ravine near Kiev, where Nazi troops, aided by sympathetic Russians, murdered more than 33,000 Jews over two days in 1941. The slaughterers had to work in shifts, and when their work was done, they covered piles of corpses with a thin layer of soil. Two years later, the Nazis tried to bury their tracks by exhuming and burning the remains. Even after the war, Soviet authori?ties balked at building a memorial and refused to admit the complicity of their own countrymen.
Yevtushenko's poem struck Shostakovich like lightning, and he set it to music even before he had the poet's permis?sion. To this first movement, he quickly added settings of three more existing poems by Yevtushenko. As the collaboration gath?ered steam, the poet provided one more poem, "Fears," for what had by then become Shostakovich's Symphony No 13.
Party hacks tried to sabotage the pre?miere, and did force some changes in the poetry. Only two performances apparently took place before the party banned the work altogether. It remains today, more than a quarter of a century later, as an unblinking j'accuse against intolerance in every guise. For his hour-long setting, the composer deferred to the poet, keeping the orchestra mostly in the background, but drawing in sharp, bold strokes that recall the first streaks of Russian nationalism, in the works of Glinka and Mussorgsky.
Program notes by Michael Fleming.
Symphony No. 13
I. Babi Yar
There is no memorial above Babi Yar. The steep ravine is like a crude tombstone. I'm frightened. I feel as old today as the Jewish race itself.
I feel now that I am a Jew. Here I wander through ancient Egypt. And here I hand on the cross and die, and I still bear the mark of the nails. I feel that I am Dreyfus in my mind. Denounced and judged by the bourgeois
I am behind bars. I am encircled. Persecuted, spat on, slandered. And fine ladies with lace frills squeal and poke their parasols into my face. I feel that I am a little boy in Bialystok.1
Blood is spattered over the floor. The ringleaders in the tavern are getting brutal, they smell of vodka and onions.
I'm kicked to the ground, I'm powerless. In vain I beg the persecutors.
They guffaw, "Kill the Yids! Save Russia!" A grain merchant beats up my mother.
Oh, my Russian people, I know -you are internationalists at heart. But there have been those with soiled hands who abused your good name. I know that my land is good. How filthy that without the slightest shame the anti-Semites proclaimed themselves
1 Scene of a Jewish pogrom in June 1906
Solo & Chorus "The Union of the Russian People!"
I feel that I am Anne Frank, as tender as a shoot in April. I am in love and have no need of words. But we need to look at each other. How little we can see or smell! The leaves and the sky are shut off from us. But there is a lot we can do -tenderly, we can embrace each other in the dark room!
Chorus "Someone's coming"
"Don't be frightened. These are the sounds of spring, spring is coming, Come to me. Give me your lips quickly!"
Chorus "They're breaking down the door"
Sob "No! It's the ice breaking!"
Above Babi Yar the wild grass rustles, the trees look threatening, as though in
judgment. Here everything silently screams, and,
baring my head, I feel as though I am slowly turning grey.
And I become a long, soundless scream above the thousands and thousands
buried here.
I am each old man who was shot here. I am each child who was shot here. No part of me can ever forget this.
Let the "Internationale" thunder out when the last anti-Semite on the earth has finally been buried.
There is no Jewish blood in my blood. But I feel the loathsome hatred of all anti-Semites as though I were a Jew -
Solo & Chorus And that is why I am a true Russian!
II. Humour
Solo & Chorus ' Tsars, kings, emperors, rulers of all the world have commanded parades but couldn't command humour.
In the palaces of the great, spending their days sleekly reclining, Aesop the vagrant turned up and they would all seem like beggars.
In houses where a hypocrite had left his wretched little footprints, Mullah Nasredin's2 jokes would demolish trivialities like pieces on a chessboard!...
They've wanted to buy humour, but he just wouldn't be bought! They've wanted to kill humour, but humour gave them the finger.
Fighting him's a tough job.
They've never stopped executing him.
His chopped-off head
was stuck onto a soldier's pike.
But as soon as the clown's pipes struck up their tune, he screeched out, "I'm here!" and broke into a jaunty dance.
Wearing a threadbare little overcoat, downcast and seemingly repentant, caught as a political prisoner, he went to his execution.
Everything about him displayed submission, resignation to the life hereafter, when he suddenly wriggled out of his coat, waved his hand and bye-bye!
They've hidden humour away in dungeons, but they hadn't a hope in hell. He passed straight through bars and stone walls.
Clearing his throat from a cold, like a rank-and-file soldier, he was a popular tune marching along with a rifle to the Winter Palace.3
He's quite used to dark looks, they don't worry him at all, and from time to time humour looks at himself humorously.
He's eternal. He's artful. And quick, he gets through everyone and everything. So then, three cheers for humour! He's a brave fellow!
The chorus acts as a kind of refrain, echoing and repeating words and phrases sung by the Solo.
Legendary folk hero from Bokhara a kind of Tyl EulenspiegelRobin Hood, who made fools of the rich and helped the poor.
In 1917 the revolutionary soldiers stormed the Winter Palace of the Tsar chanting a limerick written by Mayakovsky.
III. In the Store
Some with shawls, some with scarves, as though to some heroic enterprise or to work, into the store one by one the women silently come.
Oh, the rattling of their cans, the clanking of bottles and pans! There's a smell of onions, cucumbers, a smell of "Kabul" sauce.
I'm shivering as I queue up for the cash desk, but as I inch forward towards it, from the breath of so many women a warmth spreads round the store.
SoloChorus They wait quietly, their families' guardian angels, and they grasp in their hands their hard-earned money.
These are the women of Russia. They honour us and they judge us. They have mixed concrete, and ploughed, and mown... They have endured everything, they will continue to endure everything.
Nothing in the world is beyond them -they have been granted such strength!
Solo & Chorus
It is shameful to short-change them! It is sinful to short-weigh them!
As I shove dumplings into my pocket I sternly and quietly observe their pious hands weary from carrying their shopping bags.
IV. Fears
Fears are dying out in Russia, like the wraiths of bygone years; only in church porches, like old women, here and there they still beg for bread.
Solo I remember when they were powerful
and mighty
at the court of the lie triumphant. Fears slithered everywhere, like shadows, penetrating every floor.
They stealthily subdued people
and branded their mark on everyone:
when we should have kept silent they taught
us to scream, and to keep silent when we should have
All this seems remote today.
It is even strange to remember now.
The secret fear of an anonymous
denunciation, the secret fear of a knock at the door.
Yes, and the fear of speaking to foreigners Foreigners...even to your wife! Yes, and that unaccountable fear of being left, after a march, alone with the silence
Chorus We weren't afraid of construction work
in blizzards
or of going into battle under shell-fire, but at times we were mortally afraid of talking to ourselves.
We weren't destroyed or corrupted, and it is not for nothing that now Russia, victorious over her own fears, inspires greater fear in her enemies.
I see new fears dawning: the fear of being untrue to one's country, the fear of dishonestly debasing ideas which are self-evident truths;
The fear of boasting oneself into a stupor, the fear of parroting someone else's words, the fear of humiliating others with distrust and of trusting oneself overmuch.
Chorus Fears are dying out in Russia.
And while I am writing these lines, at times unintentionally hurrying, I write haunted by the single fear of not writing with all my strength.
V. A Career
the priests kept on saying that Galileo was dangerous and foolish. But, as time has shown, the fool was much wiser!
A certain scientist, Galileo's contemporary, was no more stupid than Galileo. He knew that the earth revolved, but he had a family.
and as he got into a carriage with his wife after accomplishing his betrayal, he reckoned he was advancing his career,
SoloChorus but in fact he'd wrecked it.
For his discovery about our planet Galileo faced the risk alone
SoloChorus and he became a great man.
Solo & Chorus Now that is what I understand by a careerist.
Chorus (& Solo)
So then, three cheers for a career when it's a career like that of Shakespeare or Pasteur, Newton, or Tolstoy (Leo) Leo!1
Why did they have mud slung at them Talent is talent, whatever name you give it.
Solo They're forgotten, those who hurled curses,
Yevtushenko (and Shostakovich) wish to make sure the readerlistener does not confuse Leo Tolstoy with Alexei Tolstoy, the novelist of the Stalinist period.
Chorus but we remember the ones who were cursed,
All those who strove towards the stratosphere, the doctors who died of cholera, they were following careers!
SoloChorus I'll take their careers as an example!
I believe in their sacred belief, and their belief gives me courage. I make a career for myself by not making one.

Since its founding, the choir has given nearly 5,000 concerts and has performed in Estonia, the former Soviet Union, Canada, the US and Sweden. Critically acclaimed concerts of past years include a program of Nordic music under the Swedish conductor Robert Sund, the music of Veljo Tormis, as well as many romantic and contemporary a cappella compositions -a genre that occu?pies a special place in the choir's repertoire. In addition to performing and touring, the choir is now actively recording. One of its first recordings is Sibelius' Kullervo for Virgin Classics with Paavo Jarvi and the Stockholm Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. Other recordings can be found on the Deutsche Grammophon, Warner, Virgin, Finlandia and Sony labels.

This afternoon's performance marks the UMS Choral Union's 374th appearance under UMS auspices.

Aztecs (US premiere)
These primitive dance rituals with indige?nous musical rhythms, steps and themes have survived to the present time. The scenic design is inspired by codex drawings and the sculptures preserved in the National Museum of Anthropology. The choreogra?phy is based on historical descriptions.
The Aztec is the best known of pre-Hispanic cultures because it was at its height when the Spanish conquistadors arrived in the second decade of the sixteenth century. Many rich details of Aztec culture have been preserved. Great architectural ruins, detailed ceramics, and extensive texts, including codices and eye-witness accounts of Aztec culture have provided Amalia Hernandez with the themes and inspiration for these
Aztec choreographies: "The Tiger Men," "The Priests," "The Maidens," "The Warriors" and "Final Dance."
Sounds Of Michoacan
Michoacan, one of the states of Mexico, is rich in its folklore, with a grand amount of treasure in its history, tradition and folk art. Arts like ceramics, weaving, copper, wood-carving and lacquer work flourish in the state. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that the state also offers a unique repertory of ancient music both for songs and dance. This ballet, the first folkloric ballet com?posed by Amalia Hernandez, begins with a village fiesta in which the dances are per?formed in front of a flower arch, one of the
common decora?tions for such a cel?ebration.
The brief but showy selection of dances begins with three "rattle" dances which reveal their hybrid Indo-Spanish origin by the constant use of the rattle, an instru?ment almost invari?ably used in pre-Hispanic times to mark the rhythms of all dances. These dances are followed by the jarabes, clas?sic examples of the style that has devel?oped in different regions of Mexico with rapid steps full of gaiety and optimism.
Modern Mexico began with the Revolution of 1910 where for the first time in the country's history, Mexican women joined men in the political struggle. This ballet is dedicated to the Soldaderas, the women who participated in the Mexican revolutionary movement -as soldiers and supporters -to fight for liberty.
In contrast to the weary men and women of the Revolution, is a group of young aristocrats dancing European polkas and flirting with each other, completely
unconcerned with the peo?ple's fight for freedom. This elite party is eventually bro?ken up by a group of revolu-
tionaries, brandishing their weapons. It is the peasants who finally dance and rejoice in the aristrocratic drawing room. The songs "Juana Gallo" and "Adelita" are dedi?cated to their namesakes, two heroines of the Revolution.
The final song of this work recounts and celebrates the brave and decisive fight held in Zacatecas, where Francisco Villa defeated the Federal Government.
Tlacotalpan's Festival
On January 31, the Mexican town of Tlacotalpan celebrates a unique holiday in honor of the Virgin of Candelaria. On a stage built in the Town Square, musicians and fandango dancers perform to the rhythms of Caribbean music played on conga drums. Mojigangas, the giant puppets that represent local figures, are carried through torch-lit streets in a grand parade reminiscent of Mardi Gras.
Tarasco (US premiere)
In a series of parodies, this ballet interprets the different stages of the Tarascan life. Tarascans are native fishermen who live at the edges of Lake Patzcuaro, in the state of Michoacan.
Birth At dusk, the scene opens with the women singing an old cradle song while
they wait for their men to return after a night's fishing.
Childhood The boys of the town dance "The White Fish."
Youth "Dance of the Soldiers."
Old Age Done with the "Old Men's Dance" from Jaracuaro, where the young imitate the elders and their decrepitude, contrasting the youth's own vigorous dance.
Parody Of Life And Death "The Little Bull from Tarimbaro" ironically describes a bullfight in a small town.
Guerrero Guerrero
The title comes from the name of the hero Vicente Guerrero, and the word "warlike" {guerrero) which signifies courage.
Las Amarillas Calendria is the name of a yellow and orange bird whose song is both loud and beautiful.
El Gusto is a Mexican tap dance from the coast of Guerrero performed in the towns of Zirandaro and Altamirano.
The Deer Dance
The Yaqui people are excellent hunters who have remained untouched by Spanish influence and are the only remaining autonomous aboriginal tribe in Mexico. Free from any intermixing with the modern Mexicans, they still hunt with bow and arrow, cultivate the land with traditional methods and celebrate ritual dances with ancient hermetic fervor. The Deer Dance, probably the most dramatic of Amalia Hernandez' dances and one of the finest examples of imitative magic, is based on a propitiatory rite that takes place on the day before a Yaqui hunt. In the dance, the hunter reproduces with astonishing fidelity the movements of the animal that he will be hunting the following day.
The Mexican state of Jalisco is well known for its beautiful women, its dashing cowboys and its highly skilled mariachis. For a centu?ry, this state has been the national symbol of Mexico because of the people's dynamism and zest for life. The popular group of
dances that is presented here comes to a cli?max in the "Jarabe Tapatio" -the Mexican national dance, better known in the United States as the "Mexican Hat Dance."
These performances mark Amalia Hernandez' Ballet Folklorico de Mexico's third and fourth performances under UMS auspices. The company debuted under UMS auspices on Novei7iber 1, 1963 and last performed under UMS auspices on February 26, 1969.

Paco Pena had admired the work of Inti-Illimani for several years before form?ing the musical and personal friendship between themselves which is expressed in their two recordings together, Fragments of a Dream and Leyenda (both on CBSSony). The collaborations grew naturally and inevitably from the guest appearances of Paco Pena (together with guitarist John Williams) in several of Inti-Illimani's London performances during the mid-1980s. Paco also presented the"Intis" at his festival in Cordoba, Spain. These first performances showcased the two guitarists mainly as soloists, joining Inti-Illimani for one or two songs at the end of the evening. In the end, everyone in the ensemble had an increased desire to perform more together, leading to a completely integrated program. Following this North American tour, Inti-Illimani and Paco Pena will tour New Zealand and Australia together.
Musical Instruments
Inti-Illimani plays more than thirty wind, string and percussion instruments. In gener?al terms, these instruments belong to the European, American Indian, African and Mestizo cultures which intertwine to form the rich and voluminous musical heritage of the Latin American Continent.
In the last few years, Inti-Illimani has toured annually on the five continents, as well as residing in Italy for more than four?teen years. On these tours, Inti-Illimani has come into contact with numerous cultures, often integrating their instruments to Inti-Illimani's music. This is the case with the dulcimer, a string-percussion instrument from the Middle East which the group integrated in Turkey. A similar situation occurred with the Peruvian cajoti, an instru?ment of the urban musical culture of Peru.
Following is a listing of the main instruments played by Inti-Illimani in tonight's performance.
String Instruments
A European instrument adopted by the Latin American population. It is the basic instrument of Chilean folk music.
Guitarron Mexicano
A mixture of a traditional jazz bass and a
guitar, it has the structure of a guitar of
large dimensions, with only having four
An instrument of Venezuelan and Colombian origin, with four strings and a resonance case smaller than the guitar. It produces a dry sound.
A small guitar with a very full sound pro?duced by twelve strings (four groups of three). It is played mostly in Colombia.
The most indigenous of all the guitar-like instruments, the charango is believed to be a descendant of the guitar, lute or mandolin. The Incas of the region known today as Ecuador, Bolivia, Peru, part of Argentina and northern Chile, originally made it from a string instrument introduced by the Spaniards. It is an instrument with five-paired strings mounted over a resonance case made of the carapace of a small armadillo, or of a special wood. The sound is very high pitched and penetrating, giving a special character to the traditional music of northern Chile, Bolivia and Argentina.
Hammered Dulcimer
A Middle Eastern instrument currently used
in the popular traditions of Turkey,
Romania and Greece. It has a horizontal box with three rows of strings, which sound when hammered with two small drumsticks, which are hand-manipulated.
The traditional European violin, commonly used in Latin America as well as in Celtic music. Due to a special tuning, it often produces a high pitched and sometimes penetrating sound.
Wind Instruments
A bamboo flute without a mouthpiece, which produces a sweet and melancholic sound. It is a very representative folk instru?ment from the Andean regions.
This flute is of indigenous origin to the Andes and very similar to East European panpipes. As the zampona does not have all the notes, it is played by pairs of musicians playing alternate notes. Played mostly in the High Plateaus Region.
A wind instrument of Ecuador, made up of varying lengths of thin bamboo pipes simi?lar to a panpipe. It is essentially a soloist's instrument.
Percussion Instruments
Similar to a tambourine, it has metallic disks in the slits of a wooden ring that holds the drum skin on one side only.
A bottle gourd instrument of African origin made with a long, hollow gourd. On its sur?face it has indentations that are stroked by a flexible wooden stick. This instrument is played in the tropical regions of Central and South America.
A bass drum native to Argentina, it is made with tree bark and covered with goatskin. The two drumsticks are sometimes covered with skin or fabric at the end.
An instrument of Central American origin, the maracas are also found in similar forms in other regions of the world. It is made of two small gourds, within which are grains that produce sound when agitated. They are played mostly in the tropical regions of Central and South America.
Peruvian Cajon
The origins of this instrument are not clear; however, it most likely came to South America via Africa. Essentially, it is a wooden percussion box.
A percussion instrument somewhat similar to the xylophone, but without a base. It is made up of a collection of wooden pieces, which are stroked with two drumsticks. As it does not have a base, the whole instrument vibrates, resulting in a hollow sound. It is played throughout Central America.
Two pieces of dried wood that are stroked against each other to produce a dry, high-pitched sound. They are played in the tropi?cal regions of Central and South America.
Scacciapensieri (Reliever of Sorrows) A small metal instrument from the south of Italy that is placed in the mouth, held with the tongue, and pulsated with the fingers. Its peculiar sound is obtained by using the mouth cavity as a resonance box.
A small instrument with a metallic sound. It is made of a small ring and handle with two jingle bells attached. This instrument comes in regional variations.
An instrument similar to a military drum. It
is played in the north and south of Chile.
Palo De Agua
Instrument made of a dried cactus trunk, which has been hollowed out and has its thorns fully inserted into the trunk. The trunk is closed off at one end, and seeds and small rocks are placed in it. Then, the other end is closed off. It is played by turning it up and down at specific angles. As the seeds and rocks hit against the thorns while descending the cavity, they reproduce the sound of water going down a stream, hence its name "water stick."
Other Percussion Instruments
There are a number of other percussion instruments used by Inti-Illimani made of animal claws, small ceramic or glass beads, dried legumes and small stones perforated in the middle and joined together in bunch?es or in specific arrangements, all producing different sounds.
Other instruments played by Inti-Illimani include standard flutes, piccolo, soprano saxophone, congas, bongos, timbales, sikus and harp.
Paco Pena was born in Cordoba, Spain, and made his first pro?fessional appearance at the age of twelve. On his first visit to London in the late 1960s, he found a receptive audience that greatly encouraged him in his career.
Pefia's New York debut in 1983 was highly acclaimed. A recent return visit drew the following comment from The New York Times: "...this listener cannot recall hearing any guitarist with a more assured mastery of his instrument. His improvisations never waft; they have a structural cohesion that is
all too rare in the impressionistic world of flamenco." Paco Pena frequently tours the US and has won the coveted "Best Flamenco Guitarist of the Year" award for five consec?utive years, voted by readers of America's Guitar Player Magazine.
His work has taken him from Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club to a concert with Victoria de los Angeles at Royal Albert Hall, from Carnegie Hall to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. He has shared recitals with John Williams, and, as in tonight's perfor?mance, the famed Chilean group, Inti-Illimani. He has undertaken several tours with Joe Pass, Leo Kottke, Eduardo Falii as well as Elliot Fisk and Pepe Romero. In 1970 Paco Pena decided to broaden his activities and founded his famous flamenco company of dancers, guitarists and singers. The group was an immediate success and it has since appeared at major festivals includ?ing Edinburgh, Adelaide, Amsterdam, Athens, Israel, Istanbul, Singapore and Hong Kong. The company was also acclaimed for its London seasons at the Royal Festival Hall, Sadler's Wells Theatre and The Barbican.
Paco Pena was appointed Professor of Flamenco Guitar at Rotterdam Conservatory (the first such post to be created) in 1985.
The flamenco mass Misa Flamenca was written by Paco Pena. Launched in 1991, it has been recorded and filmed. Its premiere at the Royal Festival Hall in London per?formed by his own flamenco company with the Choir of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, was greeted with a standing ova?tion. Misa Flamenca has now been univer?sally acclaimed, at EXPO in Seville, in the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, Poland, Germany, Holland, Belgium, Canada and in the US.
In 1997 Paco Pena received the honor of La Cruz de Oficial de la Orden del Merito Civil (Officer of the Order of Merit) from His Majesty the King of Spain, through the Spanish Ambassador Sr. D. Alberto Aza. In February of 1997 Arte y Pasion had its European premiere at Sadler's Wells at the Peacock Theatre in London. This sell-out four-week run won acclaim from critics and audiences alike. The Paco Pena Flamenco Dance Company toured the world with Arte y Pasion during the following years.
Paco Pena returned in February 1999 to London for the world premiere of his latest production, Musa Ghana. This production was performed in the Peacock Theatre (Sadler's Wells in the West End) for seven weeks, being the longest run ever of a fla?menco show.
Tonight's performance marks Paco Pena's second appearance under UMS auspices.
For three decades Inti-Illimani's music has intoxicated audiences around the globe. Wedded in traditional Latin American roots and playing on more than thirty wind, string and percussion instruments, Inti-Illimani's compositions are a treasure for the human spirit. Their mellifluous syn?thesis of instrumentals and vocals captures sacred places, people's carnivals, daily lives, loves and pains that weave an extraordinary cultural mural.
Known for their open-minded musical approach, the "Intis" had a much different mission in mind when they met in the 1960s at Santiago Technical University to become engineers. Luckily for the world, their love of music encouraged their restless souls to explore the indigenous cultures of Chile, Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and Argentina. In some of the poorest, purest and most
(Ayamara dialect: Inti Sun; Illimani -A mountain near La Paz, Bolivia and pronounced Inte-E gee-mane)
ancient cultures they discovered Andean music, and in a sense, their roots. Inti-Illimani's music became Latin America's vis?ceral link between pueblo and people, vivi?fied in Nueva Cancion.
In 1973, Chilean President Salvador Allende was deposed while Inti-lllimani was on tour. The young musicians found them?selves without patria or passport. Italy became their home for the next fourteen years; they were warmly welcomed back to Chile in 1988. Many remember Inti-lllimani as South America's ambassadors of human expression. Their unique sound -forged with passion and poetry -became a mantra for peace in a world torn by tur-
moil. They have appeared on Amnesty International stages with Bruce Springsteen, Mercedes Sosa, Sting, Wynton Marsalis and Peter Gabriel.
Of these years Jorge Coulon, in an interview stated:
We have never been so political that it was propaganda. We are not a political group in that sense, but we have always been politically engaged. We have a concept of society and the relationships between human beings, and we try to translate our ideas into our sound, not to be part of one political party or another but in the sense to bring about a better world.
Now thirty-two years and over thirty albums later, Inti-Illimani's music, influ?enced by their numerous encounters with other cultures, has illustriously evolved with powerful poetry and provocative instrumen?tal textures. Recent seasons have seen the
releases of Lejania, Amar de Nuevo and La Rosa de los Vientos (a Cantata for Inti-Illimani, orchestra and cho?rus); tours of Italy, Germany and Chile; a benefit perfor?mance in London for the Victor Jara Foundation with guests Paco Pena, John Williams and Peter Gabriel, and performances at WOMAD USA, with the Vancouver Symphony and the Edmonton Folk Festival. The most nominated artist at the 1999 Entertainment Journalist Association Awards Ceremony in Santiago, Inti-Illimani came away with "Best Group of the Year" and "Best Composer of the Year" (Horacio Salinas Inti's
Musical Director).
And the future
"Collectively," notes Jorge Coulon "we still have our impending dream, a harmo?nious world working peacefully together. Culturally, the group is involved with the creation of the Victor Jara Foundation in Santiago, Chile, which aims to further Latin American's musical roots and educate young musicians from around the world. And pro?fessionally, we've embarked on our next album with the deep sense that thirty years are nothing."
Inti-Illimani has been declared "Honorable Guest" in many cities of the world including: Rome, Venice, Milan, Florence, Naples, London, Washington, Chicago, Albuquerque, Fresno, Berkeley and Minneapolis.
Tonight's performance marks Inti-Illimani's debut under UMS auspices.
