Thank you for attending this UMS performance and for supporting the performing arts in our community. I hope I'll see you at some of the remain?ing UMS events this season. You'll find a list?ing beginning on page 29.
I want to introduce you to UMS' Administrative Director John Kennard, who is celebrating his tenth anniversary with UMS this season and his twenty-fourth overall with the University of Michigan. John over?sees UMS finances, human resources, and
other administrative matters. He has played a major role in bringing UMS to its stable financial situation and is highly regarded by his finan?cial colleagues both in and outside the University of Michigan for the quality of his work. A native of Ann Arbor, John is married and the father of five children. When he's not listening to recordings of his beloved Elvis, you'll find him hitting pars and birdies on the golf course.
Congratulations, John, for your outstanding contributions to UMS over the past decade.
We have had an exciting season thus far with memorable performances by Buena Vista Social Club, Les Arts Florissants, Sankai Juku, Paco de Lucia, Emerson String Quartet, and Laurie Anderson. Clearly one of the highlights of the fall was the performance of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra on October 20. Ann Arbor was the smallest city on the international tour the others were
Moscow, Bonn, London, Paris, Washington, New York, Boston, and Chicago but we produced the largest single-evening audience exceeding 4,000. Over 1000 were students. U-M President Lee Bollinger and Jean Magnano Bollinger hosted a wonderful post-concert reception for Claudio Abbado, mem?bers of the orchestra, and UMS members. Orchestra members were high in their praise for the community of Ann Arbor, for the acoustics of Hill Auditorium, and for the enthusiastic response of the audience. They made it clear that they want to return!
Another highlight of the fall was the launching of Bravo! This 224-page book of recipes, legends, and lore from 120 years of UMS is the result of nearly three years of work by more than 100 UMS volunteers. We are very proud of this book and of the great response it is receiving all over the country. For information on obtaining a copy, see the notice on page 37.
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 concert-going experience the best possi?ble. Look for me in the lobby. If we don't connect there, feel free to call my office at 734.647.1174, drop me a note, or send me an e-mail message at
Kenneth C. Fischer, President
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
not only of their wish to accomplish good things for our community and region, but also to be asso?ciated with excellence. It is a measure of their belief in UMS that many of these companies have had a
long history of association with us and have expanded and diversified their support in very meaningful ways.
Increasingly, our annual fundraising requirements are met by the private sector: very special individuals, organizations and companies that so generously help bring the magic to UMS performances and educational programs throughout southeastern Michigan. 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 new 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, perfor?mance 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

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 again appears in three series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra: the first two, conducted by Neeme Jarvi, include perfor?mances of Shostakovich'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 joined the Gabrieli Consort & Players for an Advent program based on the music of Praetorius in December. 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 I heater
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 opened the doors of a new 200-seat screening room addition, as well as additional restroom 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 pro?grammatic initiative to present 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 2,735-seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. In only three 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 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 Jazz at Lincoln Center (J@LC) Sextet is the Jazz at Lincoln Center educational touring ensemble dedicated to teaching and performing jazz in cities throughout the US. Drawn from the world-renowned J@LC resident orches?tra, the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra (LCJO), members of the J@LC Sextet are professional musicians who have taught pri?vately and led numerous workshops in high schools, conservatories, and universities across the United States.
In each residency, the J@LC Sextet com?bines instruction, musical performance, and informal conversation to educate people about different aspects of jazz music: jazz history, the art of improvisation, perfor?mance techniques, the mechanics of a career, and more. With diversified, comprehensive programming, J@LC residencies emphasize personal interaction with professional jazz musicians in areas that have limited access to such unique opportunities. In addition to public concerts, the J@LC Sextet conducts a variety of educational programs for the com?munity including master classes, introducto?ry programs for children, lectures, demon?strations, and clinics for area musicians.
The J@LC Sextet has previously con?ducted residencies in Birmingham, Alabama; Indianapolis, Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; Green Bay, Wisconsin; throughout Iowa, and, in July 1998 the entire fifteen-member LCJO held an unprecedented week-long residency in Yokohama, Japan, where it conducted sixty-four performance and edu?cational events. These residencies exemplify J@LC's mission of promoting jazz instruc?tion and appreciation throughout the world, from large cities to rural communities.
Jazz at Lincoln Center has appeared under UMS auspices annually for the last six seasons presenting concerts dedicated to Louis Armstrong, Thelonious Monk, and Jelly Roll Morton as well as Wynton Marsalis' Blood on
the Fields and the world premiere of Mr. Marsalis' A Fiddler's Tale in collaboration with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. They last appeared under UMS auspices with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra's presenta?tion of "A Centennial Celebration of Duke Ellington" on April 23,1999 in Hill Auditorium. The Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis will return to UMS on April 22, 2000 at Eastern Michigan University's Convocation Center with the swing-dance program "For Dancers Only!". This weekend's performances mark the Jazz at Lincoln Center Sextet's debut appearances under UMS auspices.
The University Musical Society has engaged the Jazz at Lincoln Center Sextet to further its commitment to jazz education and out?reach by spending significant time in south?eastern Michigan this season. Over four days, the members of J@LC have performed at Cass Tech High School (Detroit) for nearly 200 music students, and have been broadcast regionally to middle school systems via Wayne County RESA's Distance Learning program. The members of the J@LC Sextet have hosted masterclasses and clinics for high schools and university students from Ann Arbor and Detroit public schools, Univeristy of Michigan, Wayne State University and Michigan State University. They have met and discussed the importance of jazz education in secondary educational institutions, as well as worked with every music teacher in Ann Arbor via their "Jazz in the Classroom" teacher work?shop. We want to thank Jazz at Lincoln Center for their incredible artistic and edu?cational contributions by providing a large number of students, adults and families a new appreciation of the importance of jazz.

Symphony No. 3
Arvo Part
Born September 11, 1935 in Paide, Estonia
Arvo Part's music from the 1950s and '60s was strongly influenced by the Polish School of avant-garde composition, with its extend?ed instrumental techniques, serial-based procedures, and collage structures. His first two symphonies, from 1964 and 1966, owe much to the experimental orchestral works of Penderecki, Lutoslawski, and G6recki. Yet Part was reluctant to give up tonality altogether, and in these early compositions he often set serially-derived atonality against passages of unabashedly tonal music. This dichotomy reached its peak in Part's Credo from 1968, a work that not only drew the ire of Soviet authorities (who banned performances in the Soviet Union for the next ten years), but also represented a creative cul-de-sac for the composer. Not knowing how to proceed stylistically, he had, according to his biograph?er Paul Hillier, "reached a position of com?plete despair... he lacked the musical faith and willpower to write even a single note."
Though Part continued to earn an income by composing film scores, he wrote only two independent works between 1968 and 1976, one of which he later withdrew (the symphonic cantata LaulArmastatule). Symphony No. 3, completed in 1971 and dedicated to Neeme Jarvi, is Part's only other composition to emerge from this long period of creative silence. But the composer was not idle during these years. In an effort to uncover music's true essence, he immersed himself in the study of plainchant and medieval polyphony. He filled notebook after notebook with exercises in writing sin?gle lines of music as he attempted to unlock the secrets of monody. It was a purification, an endeavor to scrape away centuries of accumulated extraneous musical matter. In his own words, he had to "learn how to walk again as a composer."
When Part emerged rrom tnis rite or passage in 1976, he had mastered a style of meditative purity and pristine spiritual clar?ity that immediately spoke to audiences dis?satisfied with the complex fussiness of the Western avant-garde. It was this refinement of his "tintinnabuli" style (based on bell-like tonal harmonies and overtones) in works such as Fratres, Tabula Rasa, Passio, and Litany that established Part as one of the century's most deeply spiritual composers.
Dating from this period of creative rediscovery, Symphony No. 3 is indeed, as Hillier remarks, a transitional work, "but it is a splendid crossing with some glorious scenery." It gives the listener a glimpse into the inner aesthetics of the composer's mind as he attempted to pare away musical excess and focus on melodic purity. For the first time in his career, Part relinquished the binary opposition of "tonality versus atonali-ty," distilling the music from one central the?matic source. The emphasis is on unity rather than juxtaposition. The three move?ments, all stylistically similar and of roughly equal length, are played without a break: a homogeneous symphonic poem that recalls Stravinsky's religious works in its austerity, and Sibelius' symphonies in its organic flow.
"Movement 1" begins with a chant-like
melody from the oboe and clarinet, a melody that is the source for many of the symphony's subsequent musical motifs. Part's polyphonic writing here alludes to the style of the fourteenth-century ars nova, and especially to the cadential patterns favored by Francesco Landini. As the melodic frag?ments are developed polyphonically, Part distributes the phrases among the various instrumental groups, gradually increasing their rhythmic energy and complexity. The movement finishes softly with a murmur from the low strings, who immediately begin the second movement in similar fashion.
"Movement 2" is simply an extension, a continuation of the first, with similar musi?cal treatments of the same melodic cells. Some passages are reminiscent of the nostal?gic counterpoint one might hear in the orchestral works of Vaughan Williams or Part's Finnish contemporary Einojuhani Rautavaara. The movement ends with a majestic timpani crescendo.
"Movement 3," although continuing the organic development, is generally more restrained than the others. Gentle string chorales alternate with rhythmically-enlivened dance fragments in the winds. Later the strings take up the dance figures, trading off with brass chorales. The solo chant melody appears here at the end of the movement, before the strings crescendo to a final, decisive Landini cadence.
Liturgy for Viola and Orchestra: "Vom Winde Beweint"
(Mourned by the Wind)
Giya Kancheli
Born August 10, 1935 in Tbilisi, Georgia (former Soviet Union)
The music of Georgian composer Giya Kancheli may not immediately strike the lis?tener as Romantic. It is ascetically sparse, relentlessly slow (with the measured gravity
of a Tarkovsky film), and characterized by long periods of silence a music of restraint rather than passion and luxuriance. And yet there is under the surface something utterly Romantic about it. Perhaps it is the impor?tance the composer places on musical "mean?ing." As one critic has noted, "Every moment in Kancheli's music is imbued with the suf?fering inflicted by history." And Georgian conductor Jansug Kakhidze once said of the composer, "He has the Georgian folksong in his blood like a magnifying glass through which he observes the world, or like a yard?stick by which he measures values." Kancheli, like many of his Eastern European colleagues, seeks to restore to contemporary music an acknowledgment of history, moral value, and the human condition, and in so doing reverse the emotional nihilism of the twentieth-cen?tury avant-garde.
Kancheli aligns himself with Shostakovich and Schnittke as a composer for whom music is a form of protest. He likens his music to a flower that falls and is crushed under a soldier's boot, only to re-emerge later. That is, in itself, a protest against the boot. And no matter how big or terrible the boot is, the flower will always grow back.
For most of the last decade, Kancheli has lived in Berlin in self-imposed exile from his native Georgia, which remains embroiled in civil unrest. As with Chopin, the voice of the Eastern European emigre often assumes an added poignancy. Especially in the post-communist era, the West has been fascinated with composers from formerly communist states, eagerly embracing the music of Gorecki, Part, Schnittke, Gubaidulina, and Kancheli in an act of cathartic empathy.
Like his European colleagues, Kancheli considers composition a spiritual endeavor. He writes, "When a person goes into a church, synagogue, or mosque where there's no service going on, there's nonetheless a special kind of silence. There's always some?thing sounding there, but it's so quiet that I
don't hear it. I have a desire to turn that silence into music." His reference to the silence of an empty church is apt; though half-Catholic and half-Orthodox, Kancheli is no longer active in either church. His music is religious without being sectarian. It is the quiet sacredness of an empty church, not the ritual of a worship service that informs his works.
"Music, like life itself, is inconceivable without romanticism. Romanticism is a high dream of the past, present, and future -a force of invincible beauty which towers above, and conquers, the forces of ignorance, bigotry, violence, and evil." Giya Kancheli
Kancheli composed Vom Winde Beweint (Mourned by the wind) in 1989, in honor of one of his closest friends, Givi Ordzhonikidze. Though subtitled Liturgy for Viola and Orchestra, it is not explicitly (nor implicitly) liturgical. Yet there is a simple numinosity to it that recalls Shostakovich's Viola Sonata. Kancheli regards the viola as "the still, small voice of the self," a voice of isolation and loneliness, and he used it again with autobi?ographical reference in his Abii ne viderum (I turned away so as not to see) for viola and orchestra from 1994.
A crashing piano cluster at the opening of Vom Winde Beweint signifies a "first cause," the awakening of a consciousness from which the viola gradually emerges with the most primeval of musical gestures, the alternation of two adjacent notes. Kancheli develops this simple alternation into the movement's primary motivic idea. The harmonies are tonal throughout, with especially strong bass-lines (often reinforced by bass guitar) at cadence points. But the composer uses chromaticism in this move?ment as a baroque musician might, to create
tension and direct the music forward.
Another outburst from the brass and percussion begins the "Allegro moderato," where it is juxtaposed with subdued responses from the viola. The outbursts per?sist, and though there are moments of chorale-like repose, the music soon turns violent and militaristic. A reprise of the opening piano cluster interrupts at the
movement's mid?point, and ends with the same cau?tious viola alterna?tions that began the first movement. After a quiet open?ing that features a harpsichord solo, the static and mys?terious "Larahetto"
further develops the two-note motif. Sustained and hesitant, the music seems to circle aimlessly and, after a single outburst, closes in quiet surrender.
Frighteningly fierce orchestral outbursts signal the start of the final movement, a grieving lament with occasional ghostly har?monics from the solo viola. Like the flower crushed by a soldier's boot, the viola emerges from the catastrophic orchestral shocks by returning to its germinating figure, the two-note motif. Indeed, the poignant optimism of the final major triad is like a tiny blossom on scorched battlefield, a flicker of hope in a world of gray despair.
Symphony No. 6 in b minor, Op. 54
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg,
Russia Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
Gustav Mahler once remarked, "The sym?phony must be like the world. It must be all-embracing." For no composer is this more
true than Dmitri Shostakovich who, virtual?ly alone, maintained the legacy of symphon?ic composition through the middle decades of the twentieth century. Even more than Mahler, Shostakovich's symphonies (and not just the symphonies) manifest the compos?er's own world-view, detailing his personal and artistic identity as accurately as any memoir or biography. From the poignant and painful Symphony No. 4, withdrawn before its premiere after Stalin's critical attack on the composer, through the artifi?cially optimistic Symphony No. 5, the propa-gandistic patriotism of Symphony No. 7, and the tragic power of Symphony No. 8, Shostakovich immerses the perceptive lis?tener into a world of fear, anguish, and covert resistance. Nestled among these is Symphony No. 6 in b minor not as well-known as its neighbors, but equally expres?sive of the composer's own predicament.
1939 was not an especially productive year for Shostakovich. It was, as Ian MacDonald writes, "a time of meaningless activity cloaking an underlying bleakness." After the success of Symphony No. 5 in 1937, the composer pledged to write a massive work in praise of Lenin, but the weight of expectation proved too great and he was paralyzed into creative inactivity. And despite Symphony No. 5's success, Shostakovich still lived in constant fear of Stalin's purges. He began work on a sixth symphony in the summer of 1939, perhaps as a distraction, but the outbreak of hostili?ties only intensified his anxiety. He worked on the symphony as Russia and Germany collaborated to invade Poland in September 1939, finishing the second movement on the same day that Hitler and Stalin signed the non-aggression pact the following month. The work was completed soon after, and premiered in Leningrad in December 1939. The crushing despair he and other Russians had felt individually for years was now spreading across the entire European conti-
nent. It's hardly surprising that this turmoil should find its way into the music.
After the premiere, Soviet critics indig?nantly labeled Symphony No. 6 "a symphony without a head" since it lacked an opening sonata-allegro movement. They simply couldn't understand why a composer would pit one long slow movement against two short scherzos. In 1947 the Soviet writer Ivan Martynov attempted to defend the sympho?ny by suggesting that the "Largo" represent?ed the dark past, while the two scherzos were the victorious, carefree present. But that, too, missed the crucial point: there is no vic?tory, no reconciliation, no equilibrium. The world in 1939, like Shostakovich's sympho?ny, was divided and unbalanced. The only possible responses were deep gloom and ironic mockery.
Shostakovich was obliged to make a public statement claiming this symphony was "predominantly contemplative and lyri?cal. I wanted to embody in it the moods associated with spring, joy, and youth..." But it is clear from the outset that this was said only to appease the Soviet apparatchiks, as the "Largo" suggests hopelessness and grief from beginning to end. In the ghost?written memoir, Testimony, Shostakovich claims that the crippling despair he suffered after his 1936 censure is reflected not only in Symphony No. 4, but also in the opening of Symphony No. 6. The music is static and
bleached, modeled after Mahler but densely oppressive and without nostalgia or opti?mism. The countrapuntal lines and the long, sustained trills in the pedal points allude to the end of Mahler's Symphony No. 2, the anticipatory passage just before the final "resurrection." But here there are no redeeming trumpets to call forth the dead, and the purgatorial trembling continues unrelieved. Periodically the harmonies feign towards a major key, but are quickly reigned in before they approach repose.
The scherzo that follows is a grotesque caricature of busy street life, with its jeering woodwinds and menacing low brass. It mocks the enforced optimism and false cheerfulness of Social Realism. The third movement is even more grotesque, and at a more furious pace. Its insistently repeated notes are a indicator of Shostakovich's "ironic" mode, while the coda launches into some heavy-handed, high-kicking vulgarity. As MacDonald observed, "The Soviet authorities had demanded light music and they were getting it: light music with a vengeance."
Program notes by Luke Howard.
Born in Tallinn, Estonia, Neeme Jarvi studied percussion and choral conducting at the Tallinn Music School, and opera and symphonic conduct?ing at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. He made his conducting debut at the age of eighteen at the Kirov Theatre conducting Bizet's Carmen. In 1963, he became Music Director of the Estonian Radio and Television Orchestra and also began a thir?teen-year tenure as Chief Conductor of the Tallinn Opera.
Mr. Jarvi came to international atten?tion in 1971 after winning first prize at the Accademia di Santa Cecilia Conductors'
Competition in Rome. This led to invita?tions from major orchestras throughout the world. At home in Estonia, he also became Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Estonian State Symphony.
Mr. Jarvi made his American Debut in 1979 with the Metropolitan Opera produc?tion of Eugene Onegin, and made his American symphonic debut with the New York Philharmonic immediately following his emigration to the US in January 1980. Since then he has become one of the most sought-after guest conductors in North America and Europe and has held the post of Principal Conductor of Sweden's Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, now the National Orchestra of Sweden, since 1982. He has also held positions with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (Principal Guest Conductor 1981-83), the Royal Scottish National Orchestra (Principal Conductor 1981-88 and now Conductor Laureate) and he is currently Chief Guest Conductor of the Japan Philharmonic in Tokyo.
In 1990, he became Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and has been closely identified with the revitaliza-tion of that orchestra, thanks to sold-out concerts, award-winning recordings and national and international broadcasts.
Mr. Jarvi has appeared regularly with the world's most distinguished orchestras including the Philharmonia Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Royal Concertgebouw, Berlin Philharmonic, Bayerischer Rundfunk Sinfonie Orchester, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre de Paris, Orchestra dell'Accademia Santa Cecilia, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Sydney and Melbourne Symphony Orchestras. He has led both the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra on tours of Europe and the Far East. In the US, he regularly con?ducts the orchestras of New York, Chicago,
Philadelphia and San Francisco. His operatic performances have included the Metropolitan Opera and the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, and this season he will conduct the Paris National Opera.
His enormous and eclectic repertoire is captured in a prodigious recording cata-
logue of more than 350 discs on Deutsche Grammophon, Chandos, BIS, Orfeo, EMI and BMG labels. He has recorded complete cycles of Grieg (DG), Sibelius (BIS), Nielsen (DG), Shostakovich (Chandos and
DG), Dvorak (Chandos) and Prokofiev (Chandos). His espousal of fellow Estonian composers such as Arvo Part and Eduard Tubin, to name but two, have won him celebrity and numerous international awards.
Maestro Jarvi's recordings with the DSO for the British label Chandos include an internationally recognized "American Series" featuring the works of Samuel Barber, Amy Beach, Charles Ives and George Chadwick as well as by African-American composers Duke Ellington and William Grant Still.
Maestro Jarvi is deeply committed to sharing his love of music with young peo?ple; working closely with student musicians and young composers especially within the educational programs offered by the DSO. He often welcomes young conductors to attend and observe his orchestra rehearsals and it is his dream to, one day, video record rehearsals and concerts for educational and historical purposes. There are also plans to establish international master classes for
young conductors in the Estonian summer resort Parnu every July.
Mr. Jarvi holds honorary degrees from the University of Aberdeen, the Music con?servatory of Tallinn and an honorary Doctorate of Humane Letters from Wayne State University. An honorary member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, Neeme Jarvi was dubbed a Knight Commander of the North Star Order by King Karl Gustav XVI in September 1990.
In 1996, he was elevated to the Order of the National Coat of Arms by the President of the Republic of Estonia, Mr. Lennart Meri. In 1997, the Mayor of Tallinn present?ed him with the first-ever ceremonial sash and insignia of the Coat of Arms of the City of Tallinn. In October 1998 in Estonia, he was chosen among the top twenty-five Estonians of this century.
Tonight's performance marks Neeme Jarvi's ninth appearance under UMS auspices. Maestro Jarvi last appeared under UMS aus?pices on October 3, 1999 leading the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in the UMS season-opening concert of the 19992000 Choral Union Series in Hill Auditorium.
Yuri Bashmet was born in 1953 in Rostov-on-Don in Russia and spent his childhood in Lvov in the Ukraine. He studied at the Moscow Conservatory, first with Vadim Borisovsky, violist of the Beethoven Quartet, and later with Feodor Druzhinin. He subsequently became the youngest per?son ever to be appointed to a professorship at the Moscow Conservatory. In 1976 Bashmet won first prize at the International Viola Competition in Munich which launched his international career. It was written in The Times that he is "without doubt, one of the world's greatest living musicians."
He has appeared with the world's leading orchestras including the Berlin Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony,
Montreal Symphony and Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestras and London's Philharmonia Orchestra. The London Symphony Orchestra pre?sented a four-concert Yuri Bashmet Festival
in 1993 at the Barbican. Bashmet was International Artist in Residence for the 1998 Bath International Festival.
Yuri Bashmet has inspired many composers to write for him. He enjoyed an especially close and productive relationship with Alfred Schnittke whose Viola Concerto was premiered at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in 1986 and which has become firmly established in the repertoire. Other works written for Bashmet include Georgian composer Giya Kancheli's Viola Concerto, performed tonight, which he premiered at the Berlin Festival, The Myrrh Bearer by John Tavener, a concerto by Poul Ruders, and Sofia Gubaidulina's Viola Concerto, premiered with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Kent Nagano in April 1997. Bashmet also gave the world premiere of Benjamin Britten's recently edited Double Concerto for violin and viola with Gidon Kremer and the Halle Orchestra conducted by Kent Nagano in Manchester in February 1998, and in November 1999 he performed in the world premiere of Kancheli's Requiem, playing the solo viola part written especially for him.
In a number of major concert halls,
including La Scala in Milan and the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Bashmet has been the first violist ever to give a solo recital. He has appeared on many occasions with Sviatoslav Richter and has performed chamber music with many other leading artists including Natalia Gutman, the Borodin Quartet, Gidon Kremer, Viktoria Mullova, Mstislav Rostropovich and Maxim Vengerov.
In 1992 Bashmet began working with a new group, The Moscow Soloists, which he directs himself. This group is comprised of musicians nominated by professors at the Moscow Conservatory as the cream of the new generation of string players. The Moscow Soloists have been rapturously received in Moscow, Athens, Amsterdam, Paris and at the BBC Promenade Concerts in London.
Yuri Bashmet records exclusively for Sony Classical. His current release is an arrangement for viola and string orchestra of Brahms' Clarinet Quintet and Shostakovich's Quartet No.13 performed with The Moscow Soloists.
Tonight's performance marks Yuri Bashmet's debut under UMS auspices.
The irrepressible partnership of Neeme Jarvi and the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra, now in its sixteenth year, has elevated both orches?tra and its principal conductor to the fore?front of the international orchestral stage. They have together toured many countries and established a presence on two record labels, the Swedish company BIS and Polygram's Deutsche Grammophon.
In May 1997 the Swedish Parliament and Government appointed the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra as Sweden's National Orchestra, in recognition of the Orchestra's high level of artistic achievement and many
years of success at home and abroad.
The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is Sweden's oldest professional orchestra, founded in 1905. Its first Principal Conductor was composer Wilhelm Stenhammar, who contributed enormously to the development of the orchestra. Subsequent holders of the post have includ?ed Sergiu Commisiona, Sixten Ehrling, and Charles Dutoit. The list of guest conductors includes many major figures, such as Carl Nielsen, Jean Sibelius, Herbert von Karajan, Wilhelm Furtwangler, Pierre Monteux, Daniel Barenboim, Lorin Maazel, Myung Whun Chung, Herbert Blomstedt and Kent Nagano.
However it is under their present Principal Conductor, Neeme Jarvi, appoint?ed in 1982, that the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra has developed its own style and become a major musical force in Europe. The Orchestra, comprising 107 musicians, performs sixty concerts annually at home in Gothenburg's Concert Hall, one of the finest acoustic venues in the world. Opened in 1935, the hall is recognized as a landmark of the architecture of the time.
The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra and Neeme Jarvi have together established an impressive discography, and continue to record regularly. Notable releases include the six-disc Deutsche Grammophon Centenary Edition of the complete works of Grieg, (including songs with orchestra, the?atre music and concert works), cycles of symphonies by Borodin, Rimsky-Korsakov, and Nielsen, and further symphonic and vocal works of Shostakovich. They have fol?lowed their BIS recording of the complete Sibelius orchestral works with recent releas?es of the composer's tone poems on DG.
The GSO's enterprising opera record?ings with Jarvi on the DG label have been distinguished by outstanding international casts, and to date include Prokofiev's The Fiery Angel, Tchaikovsky's Mazeppa, and
most recently, a widely acclaimed release of the triptych of Rachmaninov operas.
The Orchestra makes major interna?tional tours every season. Recent highlights over the last decade have included a visit to Jarvi's native Estonia in 1989, with a return visit ten years later in May 1999. Since 1989 they have toured the US, Japan (on two occasions) and the Far East, and have regu?larly appeared at major musical centers and festivals throughout Europe.
In recent years the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra has found a particu?larly warm welcome in two of Europe's most important musical cities, London and Vienna. In addition to two visits to the BBC Promenade Concerts since 1990, they have also appeared at the Edinburgh Festival, participated in the Barbican's "Tender is the North" festival and Grieg and Shakespeare festivals, and appeared at other major cities throughout Great Britain. In 1996 they gave complete cycles of the symphonies of Jean Sibelius at the Barbican and at Symphony Hall, Birmingham. In May of last year, they completed a highly successful tour of the UK.
The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra continues to develop its international pro?file; March 1999 saw the first visit by a Swedish orchestra to the People's Republic of China, and over the coming seasons their schedule includes invitations to the US, to Japan, and to the major European centers, including the Salzburg Festival. In September 1999, following two extremely well-received concerts at the Lucerne International Music Festival, the Orchestra went on to give two highly successful con?certs in Italy which resulted in a reinvitation for an Italian tour; while November 1999 saw the Orchestra performing extensively throughout Germany, again under the baton of their Principal Conductor, Neeme Jarvi.
The major part of the Orchestra's fund?ing comes from the Swedish Government
and in particular the County of Vastra Gotaland. A generous contribution from car manufacturer Volvo provided the means for the Orchestra to expand from its original eighty musicians and continues to support the Orchestra's activities at home and abroad. In recent years, the Orchestra has
benefited from additional support from SAS Scandinavian Airlines, Goteborgs-Posten (the city's daily newspaper) and Goteborgs Energy.
Tonight's performance marks the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra's debut under UMS auspices.

Music: O Meredith Monk, 1998
Meredith Monk is a com?poser, singer, filmmaker, choreographer and direc?tor. A pioneer in what is now called "extended
vocal technique" and "interdisciplinary per?formance," she is the fourth generation singer in her family. Since graduating from Sarah Lawrence College in 1964, she has cre?ated more than 100 works. During a career that spans more than thirty years, she has been acclaimed by audiences and critics as a major creative force in the performing arts.
Monk's contributions to the cultural landscape were recognized with the MacArthur "Genius" Award in 1995. This achievement was followed by a retrospective exhibition, Meredith Monk: Archeology of an Artist, at The New York Public Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center in 1996, and most recently, a major installa?tion, Art Perfoms Life at The Walker Art Center, a show "Shrines" at the Frederieke TaylorTZ' Art Gallery and inclusion in the Whitney Museum Century of American Art. A monograph, Meredith Monk, edited by
Deborah Jowitt was released by Johns Hopkins Press in 1997.
Monk has received numerous awards throughout her career, including two Guggenheim Fellowships, a Brandeis Creative Arts Award, three Obies (includ-
ing an award for Sustained Achievement), two Villager Awards, a Bessie for Sustained Creative Achievement, the 1986 National Music Theatre Award, sixteen ASCAP i
Awards for Musical Composition and the 1992 Dance Magazine Award. She holds honorary Doctor of Arts degrees from Bard College, the University of the Arts, The Juilliard School, and San Francisco
Art Institute. Her recordings Dolmen Music (ECM New Series) and Our Lady of Late: The Vanguard Tapes (Wergo) were honored with the Germans Critics Prize for Best Records of 1981 and 1986. Her music has been heard in numerous films, including La Nouvelle Vague by Jean-Luc Godard and The Big Lebowski by Joel and Ethan Coen.
In 1965 Monk began her exploration of the voice as a multi-faceted instrument and subsequently composed and performed many solo pieces for unaccompanied voice and voicekeyboard. She formed Meredith Monk and Vocal Ensemble in 1978 to fur?ther expand her musical textures and forms. She has made more than a dozen record?ings, most of which are on the ECM New Series label, including her full-length opera, ATLAS: an opera in three parts which pre?miered at the Houston Grand Opera in 1991. In March 1997, ECM released Monk's newest CD, Volcano Songs. Her music has been performed by numerous soloists and groups including the Chorus of the San Francisco Symphony, Musica Sacra, the
Pacific Mozart Ensemble, Double
idge, and Bang on a Can 11-Stars, among others.

creaiing worKs suui as juict: A Theater Cantata In 3 Installments (1969) for the
Guggenheim Museum, Minor Latham Playhouse, and The House Loft, and
most recently American Archeology 1: Roosevelt Island (1994). She is also
an accomplished O filmmaker who has
made a series of I award-winning films I including Ellis Island
Meredith Monk
(1981) and her first feature, Book Of Days (1988), which was aired on PBS, released theatrically, and selected for the Whitney Museum's Biennial.
Meredith Monk and Vocal Ensemble recently completed a domestic tour of A Celebration Service, a nonsectarian worship service commissioned by the American Guild of Organists and Union Theological Seminary that melds her haunting vocal music and movement with spiritual texts drawn from two millennia. In October 1999 Monk performed a Vocal Offering for His Holiness, the Dalai Lama as part of the World Festival of Sacred Music in Los Angeles.

Under the direction of the incomparable Doudou N'Diaye Rose, the Drummers of West Africa are not only the most renowned drum ensemble of their native Senegal, or even of West Africa, but proba?bly the most revered percussion orchestra in the world. The Drummers, all members of Mr. Rose's family, have toured the capitals of Europe and South America with huge box office successes and recently were the open?ing attraction of the fiftieth annual Cannes Film Festival. The Japanese drum company Kodo is a great admirer of the legendary Doudou N'Diaye Rose, and invites him to appear regularly with the Drummers of West Africa in a series of performances as well as seminars in the art of percussive music.
Small and lean, with a keen eye, Doudou N'Diaye Rose, the chief drum-major of Dakar, Senegal, is a living legend. A guardian of tradition, but also an untiring innovator, this virtuoso of percussion is now perceived as a true conductor, just as the great conductors of symphony orchestras. As a child, although his family did not want him to pursue music, he was fascinat?ed by the magic of the drum. Over the years he was to learn all the finer points of per?cussion, becoming the greatest drummer of his country.
Mr. Rose has also undertaken an enor?mous amount of research, met the greatest poet-musicians of West Africa, and created a list of the innumerable rhythms which punctuate the life and ceremonies of Senegalese society. He knows the power of traditional rhythms and respects the strict conditions under which they should be interpreted. However, he is equally drawn to innovation. His experiments with new instrumental techniques, has considerably enlarged the size of the groups that he con?ducts (up to 100 drummers), and composes
works born of power and virtuosity.
Mr. Rose weaves together an unbeliev?able number of rhythmical phrases, super?imposing them in a complex and elusive pattern, which reaches our ears as a kind of fabulous melody. He creates real sym?phonies of drums, which he conducts in the manner of a dervish, somewhere between Bruce Lee and von Karajan.
Doudou N'Diaye Rose has introduced his daughters and granddaughters to the art of percussion and formed a group of female drummers, "Les Rosettes," which was revolu?tionary at the time. For the last fifteen years, he has enjoyed international stardom. Mr. Rose has traveled the world, given fantastic concerts, and composed and collaborated with various artists of recognition such as the Rolling Stones, Peter Gabriel, Miles Davis, and Dizzy Gillespie. Indeed, all forms of music interest him and he has always held the view that rhythms and tempos are to be found naturally in all musical works, be it
classical, jazz, rock, or traditional music.
Doudou N'Diaye Rose also loves to meet his public and share his expertise. He leads percussion workshops in Japan, France, Africa and the US. He has conduct?ed workshops in schools and the suburbs to spread his love of rhythm, of music, and of meeting and sharing with people.
A true cultural ambassador for his country, Doudou N'Diaye Rose is today considered one of the greatest musicians of this era.
Tonight's performance marks Doudou N'Diaye Rose and the Drummers of West Africa's debut under UMS auspices.

UMS Volunteers are an integral part of the success of our organization. There are many areas in which volunteers can lend their expertise and enthusiasm. We would like to welcome you to the UMS family and involve you in our exciting programming and activities. We rely on volunteers for a vast array of activities, including staffing the education residency activities, assisting in artist services and mailings, escorting students for our popular youth performances and a host of other projects. Call 734.763.0611 to request more information.
Now fifty-four members strong, the UMS Advisory Committee serves an integral function within the organization, supporting UMS with a volunteer corps and assisting in fundraising. Through an annual auction, sea?son opening events, and the Ford Honors Program gala, the Advisory Committee has pledged to donate $200,000 to UMS this sea?son. Additionally, the Committee's hard work is now in evidence with the publication of BRAVO!, a cookbook that traces the history of UMS through the past 120 years, with recipes submitted by artists who have per?formed under our auspices. If you would like
to become involved in this dynamic group, call 734.936.6837 for more information.
The Advisory Committee also seeks people to help with activities such as escorting students at our popular youth performances, assisting with mailings, and setting up for special events. Please call 734.936.6837 if you would like to volunteer for a project.

Without the dedicated service of UMS' Usher Corps, our events would not run as smoothly as they do. Ushers serve the essential functions of assisting patrons with seating, distributing program books and pro?viding that personal touch which sets UMS events above others.
The UMS Usher Corps comprises 400 indi?viduals who volunteer their time to make your concert-going experience more pleasant and efficient. To become an usher, each vol?unteer attends one of several orientation and training sessions offered year-round. Full?time ushers are responsible for working at every UMS performance in a specific venue (i.e. Hill, Power Center, or Rackham) for the entire concert season; substitute ushers fill in for specific shows that the full-time ushers cannot attend.
If you would like information about joining the UMS Usher Corps, leave a message for our front of house coordinator at 734.913.9696.
Great performances--the best in music, theater and dance --are presented by the University Musical Society because of the much-needed and appreciated gifts of UMS supporters, members of the Society. ft The list below represents names of current donors as of November 3, 1999.
