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

It is with great pride that we acknowl?edge and extend our gratitude to the major business contributors to our 19992000 season listed on the follow?ing pages. We are proud to have been chosen by them, for their investment in the University Musical Society is clear evidence

long history of association with us and have expanded and diversified their support in very meaningful ways.

We know that all of our supporters must make difficult choices from among the many worthwhile causes that deserve their support. We at UMS are grateful for the opportunities that these gifts make possible, enhancing the quality of life in our area.

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 Hungarians, 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.

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
Auditorium 4,163
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 desiened bv 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.

Within a Gentle Vibration and Agitation
Fixing the height of one's eyes forward
Right or left, one makes a slow turn.
One's gaze moves, following the turn. Out of focus.
One walks four steps, from the heel,
carefully meeting the floor.
At the height of one's eyes, from both temples,
stretching an imaginary thread
One person holds the furthest possible part.
One tries the same movement.
Relative to the person in the middle,
as the thread lengthens, the movement of
the two holding the thread increases in speed.
The two disappear to a point in the imagination. From a circle within the room as far as infinity.
The speed of consciousness and the distance of movement,
The speed of the body. All carefully treated. When one arrives at imagining infinity the body moves nearly at the speed of light, and nears an almost unlimited stillness.
Turning once around. Standing in the middle.
One stands. From the act of turning
Suddenly one loses every muscle,
draws out the weight from the body
and gives up one's body to the floor.
With this process, and the body lying horizontal,
one feels even more
the pull towards the center.
Interior force and exterior force. Multiple centers.
The vital connection between voluntary movement and gravity.
The body continually vibrates and is agitated between the two.
-Ushio Amagatsu
Sankai Juku and its artistic direc?tor, Ushio Amagatsu are part of the second generation of butoh dancers in Japan. Butoh is a new Japanese art form that evolved during the 1960s as an expression of humanitarian awareness by that country's post-war generation. Led by Tatsumi Hijikata and Kazuo Ohno, world-famous practitioners of butoh, Japanese dancers rejected the traditional forms of Eastern and Western dance. They investigated a method of expression which would be appropriate to a new Japan and could reflect the body and feeling of their generation.
"Butoh can only be made with that
which can be taken from the manner of liv?ing of a race," said butoh master Hijikata. The gestures seen in butoh emanate from a sensibility that has been restrained by cen?turies of tradition. The body of the butoh dancer is unencumbered by the ancient vocabulary of kabuki or noh.
For Ushio Amagatsu, butoh expresses the language of the body rather than a theo-
retical meaning of movement. Therefore each individual brings his own physical his?tory and method of expression to the art form. Before he worked in the butoh style, Amagatsu trained in classical as well as modern dance. In 1975 he started a series of workshops. From those sessions he devel?oped the idea of Sankai Juku and selected three dancers from the workshop to help create the company. The name Sankai Juku can be translated to mean "studio of moun?tain and sea."
The company's first full scale produc?tion, Homage to Ancient Dolls (1977), led to the creation of Kinkan Shonen, which was presented in Tokyo in 1978. This production
revealed Amagatsu's own vision which has enhanced the understanding of butoh. His work is a great departure from the masking of emotion and is premised on a personal expression of suffering. The contrast with the universally accepted Japanese perfor?mance traditions underscores Sankai Juku's passionate appreciation for the joy of life and the sadness of death. The white immo-
bile face traditionally represents a thwarted human being, but the whitened face of the butoh dancer is mobile and is in touch with innocence, wonder, fear and mortality.
In 1980, Sankai Juku was invited to per?form in the West for the first time. They went to the Nancy Festival in France with the firm conviction that Butoh a universal cry from the origins of humanity would be accepted. However, they did not go to expose Japanese culture to the Europeans, but rather to experience other cultural cli?mates which would give their work new res?onance.
For the next four years, the company remained in Europe where they performed constantly. In 1984 they were invited to come to North America where they made their debut at the Toronto International Festival and the L.A. Olympic Arts Festival. Subsequently, they have been embraced warmly by audiences throughout Canada and the US. Their second North American tour was curtailed when Yoshiyuki Takada accidentally died during a performance in Washington on September 10,1985. The company cancelled the remaining engage?ments and returned home, some to Japan, others to Paris.
In spring of 1986 Sankai Juku started a new sixteen-city tour of North America which began in Seattle. The company has been seen in such cities as Boston, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Ann Arbor, Minneapolis, Washington DC, and New York City. Sankai Juku has continued to be a much sought after performance group, touring America numerous times.
Ushio Amagatsu has immersed himself in the roots of the rituals and character of traditional Japan, from which his interest has reached a more universal point of view while Sankai Juku continues its foreign activities. His work has evolved to the point where his imagery predates classical struc-
tures and forms. The power and inner beau?ty identified with Sankai Juku is traced to man's inner life a spiritual being who stems from all elements surrounding humanity.
Since 1982, Theatre de la Ville in Paris has been responsible for the commissioning of six works, Jomon Sho (1982), Netsu No Katachi (1984), Unetsu (1986), Shijima (1988), Omote (1991), Yuragi (1993), and Hiyomeki (1996). In the summer of 1988, Ushio Amagatsu created his first work for Western dancers at Jacob's Pillow in Lee, Massachusetts entitled Fushi.
Ushio Amagatsu's newest creation, Hibiki (1998), was co-commissioned by the Hancher Auditorium and will make its US debut in Iowa City at the beginning of the Sankai Juku US tour for Fall 1999. Sankai Juku will return to the US to tour Hibiki in Spring 2002.
Tonight's performance marks Sankai Juku's third appearance under UMS auspices.

In a career that spans more than twenty years and more than eighty recordings, guitarist, composer and bandleader Bill Frisell has established himself as one of the most sought after collaborators in contemporary music. He has contributed to the work of such diverse artists as Ginger Baker, Paul Bley, Gavin Bryars, Don Byron, Elvis Costello, Jerry Douglas, Marianne Faithful, Jan Garbarek, Robin Holcomb, Wayne Horvitz, Lyle Mays, Paul Motian, Vernon Reid, John Scofield, David Sylvian, Hal Willner and John Zorn.
The New York Times wrote, "It's hard to find a more fruitful meditation on American music than in the compositions of guitarist Bill Frisell. Mixing rock and country with jazz and blues, he's found what connects them: improvisation and a sense of play. Unlike other 'pastichists,' who tend to duck passion, Mr. Frisell plays up the pleasure in the music and also takes on another often-avoided subject, tenderness." His work has established Mr. Frisell as one of the most sought-after guitar voices in contemporary music. The breadth of such performing and recording situations is a tes?tament not only to his singular guitar con?ception, but his musical versatility as well. In recent years, it has been Bill Frisell's role as a composer and bandleader which has garnered him increasing notoriety.
Bill Frisell recently made a national television appearance in 1997 on Sessions at West 54th, and The New Yorker called him, "...the most distinctive stylist in contempo?rary jazz." That same year, his 1996 recording Quartet won the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis, the German equivalent of a Grammy Award. In 1998 Frisell's recording Nashville won the Downbeat Critics Poll for "Album of the Year," and he received both a Critics Award and an Industry Award in the category of "Best Guitarist" at the First Annual Jazz Awards, sponsored by the Knitting Factory and the Jazz Journalists Association.
Mr. Frisell recently performed a series of select solo dates, after which he docu?mented his first-ever solo record, produced by Lee Townsend which is set for release next year on Nonesuch. He also arranged and performed on a second collaboration with Elvis Costello, an album of songs by Mr. Costello and Burt Bacharach called The Sweetest Punch, released by Universal Classics earlier this fall. Mr. Frisell has also been busy composing and recording origi?nal soundtrack music for several projects: American Hollow, an HBO special about an Appalachian family; an educational radio program about the human genome called The DNA Files; Gus Van Sant's remake of the classic horror film Psycho; and new music for Gary Larson's second animated film project. Additionally, Mr. Frisell has been on the road with a new band called Bill Frisell and the Willies, featuring a variation on bluegrass instrumentation with Danny Barnes (banjo, guitar), Eyvind Kang (violin) and Keith Lowe (bass).
Bill Frisell was born in Baltimore and grew up in Denver, playing the clarinet in his high school band and discovering his love for the guitar through his exposure to pop music on the radio. His great enthusi?asm for the Chicago Blues particularly the music of B.B. King and Paul Butterfield -led to his complex affinity for contemporary American music. Mr. Frisell studied at the University of Northern Colorado and at the Berklee College of Music in Boston. In 1978, he spent a year composing in Belgium and then moved to New York City, where he spent the next ten years in fruitful collabo?ration with some of the most creative tal?ents of the downtown new music scene. In 1989, Bill Frisell moved to Seattle, where he continues to make his home.
Tonight's performance marks Bill Frisell's debut under UMS auspices.
Guitarist Greg Leisz has been much in demand for playing country, folk, and rock music as well as with pop artists Emmylou Harris, Linda Rondstat, Jewel, Beck, Dave Alvin, Peter Case, Paula Cole, Fiona Apple, the Smashing Pumpkins, and icons the Beach Boys, Joe Cocker, and Joni Mitchell. Leisz's primary instrument is the pedal-steel guitar but he's also gained a reputation for his wizardry on a variety of other string instruments: the acoustic dobro, Hawaiian Weissenborn, lap steel and mandolin, all of which he plays on Mr. Frisell's latest CD, Good Dog, Happy Man (Nonesuch).
Tonight's performance marks Greg Leisz's debut under UMS auspices.
Bassist David Piltch came of age in Toronto's jazz scene, accompanying such greats as Chet Baker, Art Pepper, Kenny Wheeler, and Tom Harrell. In more recent years he has relocated to the Los Angeles
area and now works with vocalists Holly Cole, Janice Ian, and k.d. lang.
Tonight's performance marks David Piltch's debut under UMS auspices.
Drummer Kenny Wollesen grew up in Santa Cruz, California and has since lived and worked in New York City for the past six years. He has played with John Zorn, Marc Ribot, John Medeski, Tom Waits, Sean Lennon, Mitchell Froom, Big John Patton, John Lurie, Jessica Williams and Myra Melford. In addition to his touring work with Bill Frisell he currently works with trumpeter Steven Bernstein's group Sex Mob, with Slow Poke and guitarist Leni Stern.

Ibrahim Ferrer was born at a social club dance on February 20,1927 in San Luis, a town near Santiago, Cuba. He has never looked back from that musical introduction to the world. His mother died when he was twelve years old, and Ibrahim was forced to earn his own living singing on the streets of Santiago. At the age of thirteen he formed his first musical group with his cousin. They called themselves the Jovenes del Son (Young Men of Son), and performed at local private parties. Before long they attracted the atten?tion of some of Santiago's musicians and Ibrahim was called to sing with a succession
of bands, most notably the Conjunto Wilson, Conjunto Sorpresa and Maravilla Beltran.
Later he sang with Santiago's finest orchestra, Orquesta Chepin-Choven, a very influential jazz group lead by the composer Electo Rosell (known artistically as Chepin). Rosell composed one of Ibrahim's biggest hits, El platanal de Bartolo.
In 1953 Ibrahim Ferrer started to work with Pacho Alonso's group in Santiago. In 1959 the group moved permanently to Havana and renamed themselves Los Bocucos. (The name comes from a type of drum, used in Santiago carnivals). With the Bocucos, Ferrer's work consisted mainly of
guarachas, sones and up?tempo numbers, although Ibrahim yearned to sing boleros. He enjoyed some popularity with songs such as Mi Quimbin and El Platanal de Bartolo, but he would have to wait nearly forty years to record a bolero worthy of his considerable talents as a bolero singer, That song, Dos Gardenias by Isolina Carrillo, is featured on the Grammy Award-win?ning recording Buena Vista Social Club.
When a bolero singer of the old school was required for the World Circuit recording sessions in 1996, Ibrahim Ferrer was literally plucked off the streets of Havana where he was taking his daily walk. During the sessions he took part in the Afro-Cuban All Stars' Grammy-nominated record?ing A Toda Cuba le Gusta and is one of the main soneros on the million-sell?ing album Buena Vista
Social Club, produced by Ry Cooder.
Whereas the other stars from the Buena Vista sessions had originally some fame both in and outside of Cuba, Ibrahim Ferrei had never been recognized in his own right. He has since emerged as the one true dis?covery of the sessions. Always regarded as a "musician's musician," Ibrahim Ferrer has now been given the chance to display his great talent in both the rural Santiago and urban Havana traditions.
Whereas the other stars from the Buena Vista sessions had originally some fame both in and outside of Cuba, Ibrahim Ferrer had never been recognized in his own right. He has since emerged as the one true discovery.
In May, Ibrahim Ferrer's debut album, produced by Ry Cooder, was released world?wide by World CircuitNonesuch Records. He also plays a starring role in Win Wenders' documentary The Buena Vista Social Club, released in the US this past June.
"I pinch myself all the time," Ibrahim says. "It is a dream come true. When I was younger I thought I was going to travel the world with my music. The only chance I got was when I came to Europe in 1962. Then there was the missile crisis. I played in Paris and Eastern Europe with Pacho Alonso's orchestra and then I was stuck in Europe. I had to stay until everything settled down again before I could go home. Then nothing happened for thirty-five years. This has given me the will to live. I'm living the dream of my youth in the body of an old man."
Tonight's performance marks Ibrahim Ferrer's second appearance under UMS auspices.
It has been said that Ruben Gonzalez could have been a classical pianist or he could have been a doctor. Instead, he became one of the legendary fig?ures of Cuban music, whose piano sound has created trends and established styles for more than half a century. Gonzalez graduated from the Cienfuegos Conservatoire in 1934. He then
"The greatest piano soloist I have ever heard in my life. He's like a Cuban cross between Thelonious Monk and Felix the Cat." Ry cooner
attended medical school, thinking he would be a doctor by day and musician by night. But the rhythms of Cuban son in particular were in his blood. By 1941 he had aban?doned his medical studies and moved to Havana to make a full-time career as a musician.
Within a year he had joined the conjun-to of the legendary Arsenio Rodriguez and also played with Mongo Santamaria in the Orquesta de Los Hermanos. Today he is the
only survivor of a trio of pianists from the period, with Luis 'Lili' Martinez and Peruchin. Together, they helped shape the future sound of Cuban music, developing the mambo and embracing modern jazz harmonies. And at the same time, Gonzalez developed his own very distinctive style.
After traveling to Panama and Argentina to play with tango musicians,
oonzaiez returned to Havana to play with cabaret bands at clubs like the Tropicana. By the early 1960s he had teamed up with Enrique Jorrin, the creator of the cha-cha-cha. Gonzalez stayed with Jorrin for twenty-five years until the bandleader died in the mid-1980s. Gonzalez briefly took over as bandleader and retired shortly thereafter. The recording with Buena Vista Social Club and his own debut solo recording, Introducing Ruben Gonzalez, marks forty-three years since he first entered the studio with Arsenio Rodriguez.
After Gonzalez made his New York debut at Carnegie Hall in July 1998, The New York Times
critic Jon Pareles raved, "Mr. Gonzalez was the group's most determined crowd pleaser, splashing across the piano with two-handed chords, ending phrases with sweeping glis-sandos and quoting Liszt during a danzdn. In one tune, he carried a solo up to the top of the keyboard and beyond, playing the air while the audience cheered."
Tonight's performance marks Ruben Gonzalez' debut under UMS auspices.

String Quartet No. 13 in b-flat minor, Op. 138
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg,
Russia Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
The composition of the Violin Sonata (1968) and Symphony No. 14 separate String Quartet No. 12 from No. 13, all of these works in which the composer continued to prune his expressive means and to explore the possibilities of concentrated, twelve-note thematic writing without employing any dogmatic compositional system. In String Quartet No. 13, Shostakovich pursued the goal of cyclic unity to a logical conclusion by casting the work in a concise, symmetri?cal arch form in which the main events of the first half find a mirror reflection in the second.
Shostakovich dedicated his String Quartet No. 13, completed in August 1970, to Vadim Borisovsky, as a belated present for his seventieth birthday. Due to ill health, the longtime violinist of the Beethoven Quartet by this time had already ceded his place in the ensemble to his student Fyodor Druzhinin. The quartet received its premiere in Leningrad on December 13,1970. The composer honored its dedicatee by assign?ing the viola a prominent role in the com?position: the viola both opens the work with a solo statement of the main theme, and in a lengthy monologue accompanied only by the tapping of the bow on the belly of the violin, brings the work to its final sonority.
Of all Shostakovich's quartets, String Quartet No. 13 is tonally the most ambigu?ous, in disposition the most dark and deso?late. Its form is divided into five sections that can be graphically represented as ABCBA; the elegiac opening and closing sections (A) of the quartet are marked "Adagio" while the central sections double the tempo. The viola solo that opens the
quartet sculpts a twelve-note row into dis?tinctive sequential motives; the interval of the descending minor second, prominent in so much of the composer's late music, assumes special significance. As the tempo quickens, tentative staccato repetitions in the violin are transformed into violently struck chordal dissonances before splinter?ing among the instruments. In the central section of the work (C), the instruments flit in a macabre dance over a pizzicato ostinato figure, eerily punctuated by the hollow taps of bows on wood. The recapitulation of the earlier sections is rounded out by a coda for the viola that climbs gradually to a final, harrowing crescendo for the three upper instruments in unison on a stratospheric B-flat. (The precedent for this unusual ending can be found in Symphony No. 14.)
String Quartet No. 14 in F-sharp Major, Op. 142
Shortly after the completion of his Symphony No. 15 in the summer of 1971, Shostakovich suffered his second heart attack. His heart improved, but his physical strength and mobility deteriorated significantly. A year later, while in the hospital for kidney stones, a cyst was discovered in his left lung and he began radiation treatments. (The cause of Shostakovich's death, in 1975, was lung can?cer.) What bothered him considerably more than his myriad disabilities and failing health, however, was the creative dry spell that they brought on; throughout his life the need for the sustenance of composing was on par with his need for food. His mood improved markedly in the spring of 1973, when the spell was finally broken with the composition of his String Quartet No. 14.
Dedicated to the one remaining mem?ber of the original Beethoven Quartet who
had not yet received individual recognition, the cellist Sergey (Seryozha) Shirinsky, Shostakovich personalized the dedication both by featuring his instrument and by imbedding a quote from Act IV of his opera, Katerina Izmaylova, ("Seryozha, my fine one") in the last movement. (The same quotation, incidentally, had already appeared in String Quartet No. 8.) Additionally, in the opening pizzicato motive of the last movement, Shostakovich spelled out the musical equivalent of the dedicatee's name. String Quartet No. 14 was given its premiere in Leningrad on November 12, 1973.
String Quartet No. 14 is in three move?ments, the second and third played without pause. In sharp contrast to his previous two quartets, in String Quartet No. 14 Shostakovich makes no use of twelve-note writing. Chromaticism is present, but its tonal contexts are more clearly defined; the sound is more "traditional." The cello intro?duces both main themes in the sonata-form first movement. The initial theme, with its simple descending, then ascending sequences reflect back to a more innocent, carefree past. Cadenzas for the viola and later the cello lead to a coda that brings the movement to a tranquil conclusion. The opening theme of the second movement is a fluid, expressive melody that evolved over a long span; much of the movement is in rar?efied two-part texture. A central episode presents a ravishing duet for cello above the first violin. (Shostakovich referred to this uncharacteristically sentimental departure as his "Italian bit.") The final movement contains crisp pointillistic fragmentation of themes from both first and second move?ments and concluded with an extensive reprise of the themes, including the "Italian" duet, from the slow movement.
String Quartet No. 15 in e-flat minor, Op. 144
Nowhere in his instrumental music is Shostakovich's preoccupation with death more evident than in his last quartet, String Quartet No. 15. Completed in the hospital in May 1974, String Quartet No. 15 was the first quartet since String Quartet No. 6 (and one of a total of only three) that Shostakovich did not provide with a dedica?tion, although the bleak introspection of the quartet left no doubt in his contemporaries' minds that it was to be regarded as a per?sonal requiem. Shostakovich, however, did not end his composing career with String Quartet No. 15. Hard on its heels, in a burst of creative activity, he produced the Suite on Verses of Michelangelo Buonarroti and the Four Verses of Captain Lebyadkin in the summer of 1974. In the autumn, the Beethoven Quartet began rehearsing the new quartet; the sudden death of cellist Sergey Shirinsky, however, brought about Shostakovich's decision to consign the pre?miere to the Taneyev Quartet, who per?formed it in Leningrad on November 15, 1974.
The form of String Quartet No. 15 is unprecedented. All six of its movements, performed without a break, are marked "Adagio." The only contrast in tempo is provided by the fifth movement ("Funeral March"), though, significantly, its tempo is slower than that of the other movements. The consistency of tempo is matched by a unity of key; the tonic key of e-flat minor dominates the entire quartet. Within these restraints, however, Shostakovich achieves a maximum degree of variety and contrast. The "Elegy" exemplifies the austerity and concentration that prevails throughout. The mirror-like theme, introduced frugally, is archaic in its simplicity. The texture is modal and transparent, and the dynamic
level rarely rises above piano. The opening of the second movement, "Serenade," with its harsh, overlapping crescendos and stri?dent dissonance, makes a terrifying contrast. It paves the way for fragmentary strains of a waltz which fails to gain momentum before it is suppressed by destructive forces.
The "Intermezzo," with a cadenza-like flourish for the violin over a sustained pedal in the cello, acts as a transition to the "Nocturne." Here the warm, lyrical melody played by a muted viola is framed by the gently undulating arpeggiations of violin and cello. Toward the end, the intrusion of a dotted-note rhythmic motive heralds the "Funeral March," where emphatic chordal reiteration of the dotted motive alternates with impassioned statements by individual instruments. With rapid trilling effects, the "Epilogue" weaves together brief reminis?cences from the earlier movements into a cyclic whole.

Acclaimed for its artistry and dynamic performance style, the Emerson String Quartet has amassed an impressive list of achievements: an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon recording contract, four Grammy Awards one for "Best Classical Album" and three for "Best Chamber Music Performance" -Gramophone Magazine's "Record of the Year" award, regular appearances with virtu?ally every chamber music series and festival worldwide, and an international reputation as a quartet that approaches both the clas?sics and contemporary music with equal mastery and enthusiasm.
The Emerson String Quartet has an extensive 1999-2000 season. In the spring of 2000, the group will perform the complete
cycle of Shostakovich Quartets in a five-con?cert series to be presented at both New York's Alice Tully Hall and the Barbican Center in London. Additionally, the Quartet will participate in a Shostakovich sympo?sium and collaborate with renowned direc?tor Simon McBurney {Street of Crocodiles, The Chairs) in a theatrical work featuring Shostakovich's String Quartet No. 15. Blending film, poetry and live music by the Emerson Quartet, Mr. McBurney will cap?ture the essence of this haunted composer and the music Shostakovich devoted to remembrance and renewal. The Quartet continues its sold-out series at the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, DC and the Hartt School of Music. Additional North American concert venues include Chicago, Boston, Cleveland, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, La Jolla, Aspen, San Francisco, Ann Arbor, Houston, Seattle and Mexico City. International highlights will be appear?ances in Paris, Zurich, Geneva, and tours of Germany and Italy.
In 1987, the Emerson signed an exclu?sive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon, which led to its acclaimed recording of Bartok's complete string quar?tets. In 1990, the Emerson received the 1989 Grammy for "Best Classical Album" and 1989 Gramophone Magazine's "Record of the Year" award for the Bartok cycle. This was the first time in the history of each award that a chamber music ensemble had ever received the top prize. In 1994, the Emerson added another Grammy to its discography when American Originals, a disc of Ives and Barber quartets, received the award for "Best Chamber Music Recording." In March 1997, the Emerson released the complete quartets of Beethoven to overwhelming crit?ical acclaim, and the following year received its fourth Grammy award, for "Best Chamber Music Recording." A disc of Edgar Meyer's Bass Quintet paired with Ned
Rorem's String Quartet was released in March 1998. The Quartet's next major recording, the complete string quartets of Dmitri Shostakovich, will be released in January 2000. The theatrical nature of these extraordinary masterpieces and their power?ful effect on audiences led the Emerson to record them live during three summers at the Aspen Music Festival.
Formed in the Bicentennial year of the United States, the Emerson String Quartet took its name from the great American poet and philosopher Ralph Waldo Emerson. Violinists Eugene Drucker and Philip Setzer alternate in the first chair position, and are joined by violist Lawrence Dutton and cel?list David Finckel. All four members have performed numerous benefit concerts for
causes ranging from nuclear dis?armament to the fight against AIDS, world hunger and children's diseases. The Quartet has been the topic of two award-win?ning films and appears on a laser video disc released byTeldec. In 1994, the Quartet received the University Medal for Distinguished Service from the University of Hartford, and in 1995, each mem?ber was awarded an honorary doc?toral degree from Middlebury College in Vermont. The
Emerson String Quartet has been featured in The New York Times Magazine, USA Today, Elle, Bon Appetit, The Strad, and Strings. Television appearances include WNET's "City Arts" and A&E's Biography of Beethoven.
Tonight's performance marks the Emerson String Quartet's seventh appearance under UMS auspices.

String Quartet in c minor, Op. 18, No. 4
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Beethoven composed his first set of six string quartets, published as Op. 18 in 1801, during a period of transition within the genre. He was writing for a Viennese audi?ence raised on the works of Mozart and Haydn, both undisputed masters of the genre (in Haydn's case, still actively compos?ing chamber music), and the shadow of eighteenth-century classicism still loomed large over them. But even in these early works, Beethoven hinted at the new hori?zons of musical expression he would explore in Op. 59 and the later quartets. They demonstrate his facile assimilation of a rela?tively new tradition, and an increasingly secure commitment to his own developing musical language.
While it appears that Beethoven worked on Op. 18 mainly between 1798 and 1800, the lack of extant sketches for the fourth quartet suggest it may have been written under different circumstances, perhaps even at a later date than the other five. It is more expansive, vigorous, and richer in texture, and is the most emotionally intense of the set, a trait emphasized by the minor key. Moreover, the key of c-minor is one that Beethoven never took lightly throughout his career. While this quartet may not reach the passionate extremes of, for instance, the Pathetique piano sonata -an earlier c-minor work -it still retains some degree of its emotional gravity and seriousness.
The main theme of the opening "Allegro" sets the serious character immedi?ately, and establishes a new level of drama for the opening of a string quartet. Unusually for Beethoven, the first theme is a fully-fledged melody, lyrical and passionate, rather than a short, rhythmic motif. The
punctuating fortissimo chords at the close of the theme return periodically throughout the movement as a dramatic contrast, and some adventurous modulations in the reca?pitulation raise the level of intensity even further. But this is still an early work, not yet as emphatic as the c-minor Symphony No. 5, in which the passionate struggles would become deeply personal rather than merely musical.
This quartet is the first of several works by Beethoven to include both a scherzo and a minuet, with no slow movement. In the second movement marked "Scherzo," the fugato themes are a parody of classical coun?terpoint, constructed from little more than scale fragments and arpeggios. Beethoven even mimics a baroque-like hemiola at cadence points. But despite the studied banality, there is no ironic edge to the paro?dy; it's simply a playful badinage.
After the witty C-Major "Scherzo," the composer returns to tonic minor for the "Menuetto," recapturing the pathos of the opening movement. He omits the repeat of the trio's second section, and indicates that the da capo restatement of the minuet be taken faster than the original tempo. This movement is brooding and restless, relieved only by the A-flat trio, the only section of the entire quartet to provide tonal contrast, as all four movements keep 'c' as the tonic.
Like the finale of the Pathetique sonata, the finale movement of this quartet is vari?ously lively, gruff, and placid, with the rondo episodes providing opportunities for the greatest contrast. Its rustic, rough-edged vigor presses toward a prestissimo cascade. But then, just as the movement seems to relax into a quiet and subdued ending, Beethoven adds a resolute, unison conclu?sion.
Quartet (1931)
Ruth Crawford Seeger Born July 3, 1901 in East Liverpool, Ohio Died November 18, 1953 in Chevy Chase, Maryland
Ruth Crawford's early training followed a conventional path for women of her time seeking a career in music. She studied for the piano teaching certificate at the American Conservatory of Music in Chicago, and took harmony classes from Adolf Weidig, one of the few teachers there sympathetic to new developments in musical style. But Crawford's early compositions during this period (influenced by Scriabin, both in pianistic style and the meta-mysticism of his aesthet?ic theology) showed an exciting dynamism. Before long it was clear that she possessed tremendous compositional talent.
By the 1930s, Crawford had the support of Henry Cowell, who praised her as an exception to the stereotype of women com?posers as merely "sentimental melodists." She was awarded a Guggenheim fellowship in 1930, and moved to New York to study with Cowell's teacher, Charles Seeger (whom she eventually married). Crawford's biogra?pher, Judith Tick, writes that she avoided "Schoenberg's 'cerebral' approach" and focused on "Seeger's idee fixe (fixed idea) of heterophony, treating dissonance as a value one could apply to all aspects of music." The result was an informal and intuitive approach to what would later be codified as total serialism, with pitch, rhythm, and dynamics all "dissonated" and blended with her tremendous gift for melody.
The Quartet (1931), composed while in Europe, is considered by many to be Crawford's masterpiece, and a brilliant application of Seeger's "dissonant counter?point" theories. But soon after composing the string quartet, Crawford and her hus?band became more involved in the political "left," giving up avant-garde composition in
favor of the search for a "people's music." From 1936 until her death in 1953, she devoted herself to the folk music revival, publishing anthologies of folk songs and composing works based on folk melodies and rhythms.
The first movement of the Quartet, though notated mainly in 3A time, is so filled with quintuplet and triplet rhythms that there is little sense of metric regularity. In the vigorously polyphonic texture, one voice is always marked "solo," indicating which instrument has the prominent melody. The second movement follows without a break. A study in sixteenth-note rhythms, the counterpoint is conceived more traditionally here, with imitations of Renaissance hocket or rapid exchanges between instruments. The movement is liberally marked giocoso (joyfully).
In the third movement, Crawford explores "dissonant dynamics." Each instru?ment sustains a single note for several mea?sures, but the dynamics are individually shaped so that one instrument fades as another emerges. This gives the impression of simultaneous stasis and motion, much like Schoenberg's orchestral Farben, Op. 163. The stunningly majestic climax, with its high, crunching dissonances, anticipates the Polish school's string-texture experi?ments of the 1960s. Crawford arranged this movement as an independent work for string orchestra in 1938.
The final movement is an exact palin?drome: the second half is simply the retro?grade of the first half, played a half-step higher. It is cast as a dialog between the first violin (whose melody re-introduces the triplets and quintuplets from the first move?ment) and the rest of the quartet playing in unison. But there is little "conversation" involved, as each party seems oblivious to the other. The solo violin has the last (and first) say, but ultimately has been talking to itself the whole time.
String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 74
The year 1809 was not an especially produc?tive one for Beethoven. After completing the "Emperor" piano concerto, he wrote some piano sonatas (including Op. 81a, Das Lebewohl) but little else of import. The composer was concerned at the time about the political situation in Vienna, which was under attack from Napoleon's French forces. It was only when he escaped to the country?side away from Vienna, soon after finishing the concerto, that he regained some physical and psychological comfort, and composed the String Quartet in E-flat Major, Op. 74. But composition slowed again after he returned to the city. The following year was even less productive, with the Op. 95 string quartet standing out. He would not com?pose another string quartet until 1824. The Viennese audience's cool response to the Razumovsky (Op. 59) quartets in 1806 had troubled Beethoven, and he privately decided that his next quartet would be more accessible, more immediately pleasing to the listener. Joseph Kerman describes the Op. 74 quartet as an "open, unproblematic, lucid work of consolidation," written in response to the reception of Op. 59. But while there may be some conservative elements in it, the E-flat quartet can also be regarded as the first step toward the composer's later style, not least in its contrapuntal complexity and the tendency to eschew dramatic passion in favor of a calm quietude.
The first movement's opening "Poco Adagio" is questioning and hesitant, in a manner that would come to characterize the later quartets. But the following "Allegro" bears the classical hallmarks of balance and untroubled lightness; in Kerman's words, it is "ostentatiously at peace with itself." Whili in formal terms the movement is fairly straightforward, there are specific instru-
mental and textural touches that enliven the music. Extended pizzicato passages, especial?ly in the development section, have earned the quartet its nickname, the "Harp," while periodic unison writing endows the "Allegro" with another kind of textural variety.
The relaxed theme of the slow move?ment gives lie to those who think that Beethoven's gift for lyrical melody was limit?ed. The key of A-flat Major had already inspired some of the composer's most rav?ishing slow movements; as in the Pathetique sonata, he ornaments differently each return of the melody, interspersing it with rondo-like episodes. While the movement's gentle?ness may indicate either grief or serenity, the final marking in the score --"morendo" (dying away) -seems to represent more than just a performance indication. Again, the profundity anticipates the later quartets.
Though not marked as a scherzo, the third movement is certainly intense, and fast. It bears some affinity with the "scherzo" of Symphony No. 5, in key (c-minor, again) and in the aggressive counterpoint of the trio section. There is even an echo of the infamous "fate" motif in the rhythmic pat?terns. The form is the same as the scherzo movements in Op. 59, No. 2, and Symphonies No. 4 and No. 7, with the presto and trio repeating twice before the presto is heard a third time, pianissimo.
A long transition (which later inspired Schubert) leads without pause to the finale, and suggests that the final movement might be something of great import. Instead, Beethoven writes as innocuous a set of vari?ations as one is likely to find in his oeuvre. But this is not so much an anticlimax as energy dissipating into tranquility, recreat?ing the pastoral repose and charming ele?gance of the first movement.
Program notes by Luke Howard.
The American String Quartet celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary in the 19981999 season with a tour that included concerts in all fifty states, a performance at the Kennedy Center in Washington, and two European tours. In the years since its inception, the Quartet has achieved a position of rare esteem in the world of chamber music. On annual tours that have included virtually every important concert hall in eight European countries and across North America, the Quartet has won critical acclaim for its presentations of the complete quartets of Beethoven, Schubert, Schoenberg, Bartok and Mozart, and for collaborations with a host of distinguished artists.
Resident Quartet at the Aspen Music Festival since 1974 and at the Taos School of Music since 1979, the American also has ongoing series at University of Michigan's University Musical Society and the Orange County Performing Arts Center in California. The Quartet is credited with broadening public awareness and enjoyment of chamber music across North America through educational programs, seminars, broadcast performances, and published arti-
cles. It was one of the first ensembles to receive a National Arts Endowment grant for its activities on college campuses. Its commitment to contemporary music has resulted in numerous commissions and awards, among them three prize-winners at the Kennedy Center's Friedheim Awards.
Quartet-in-Residence at the Manhattan School of Music in New York since 1984, the members of the Quartet were previously on the faculty of the Peabody Conservatory (where they initiated the program of quartet studies) and in 1992 they served as resident ensemble for the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
The American String Quartet continues to reach a widening audience through its recordings, most recently the complete
Mozart string quartets for MusicMastersMusical Heritage on a set of matched Stradivarius instru?ments, released during the 19971998 season. The Quartet's diverse activities have also included numer?ous radio and television broadcasts in fifteen coun?tries, tours to Japan and the Far East, and performances with the Montreal Symphony, the New York City Ballet and the Philadelphia Orchestra. The four musicians
studied at The Juilliard School, where the Quartet was formed in 1974, winning the Coleman Competition and the Naumburg Award that same year. Outside the Quartet, each finds time for solo appearances and recitals.
This performance marks the American String Quartet's eighth appearance under UMS auspices.
