is recognized worldwide as one of the foremost violinists of this century. Throughout his sixtyplus years as a professional musician, he has appeared on the world's most prestigious concert stages, guided the careers of countless young musicians and devoted himself to the advancement of the arts nationally and inter?nationally. Mr. Stern is one of the most recorded musical artists of our time, with more than 100 recordings of over 200 works by sixtythree composers to his credit. He has been an exclusive Sony Classical (formerly CBS Masterworks) recording artist for fifty years and was named that label's first Artist Laureate in 1985 in recognition of this long?standing association. In 1995, Sony Classical launched the reissue of a major edition of his recordings under the title Isaac Stern: A Life in Music. Renowned for his highly acclaimed interpretations of the standard repertoire, Mr. Stern is also an avowed cham?pion of contemporary music, having performed many world and American premieres, both in concert and on record. He is the recent
author, with Chaim Potok, of a memoir enti?tled My First 79 Years, published by Alfred A. Knopf in September 1999.
Additional career highlights for Mr. Stern include his work for feature films and televi?sion, notably the Academy Awardwinning documentary From Mao to Mozart: Isaac Stern in China; the CBS broadcast of Carnegie Hall: The Grand Reopening, which received an Emmy award in 1987; and Isaac Stern A Life, which was nominated for Best Classical Documentary at the 1993 MIDEM conference in France, as well as the films A Journey to Jerusalem, Tonight We Sing and Humoresque. He has been featured in innumerable televised concert broadcasts and on major talk shows and news programs on all of the networks, both here and in Europe.
Mr. Stern's performing schedule remains exceptional and wideranging. In recent sea?sons he has collaborated with pianist Yefim Bronfman for recitals and recordings, includ?ing the Brahms Violin Sonatas (recorded live during a 1991 tour of Russia), the complete Mozart Violin Sonatas and the two Bart6k Violin Sonatas. Mr. Stern has also toured reg?ularly in recital with Robert McDonald and
in a quartet with Emanuel Ax, Jaime Laredo and YoYo Ma, performing and recording the piano quartet repertoire, including works of Beethoven, Brahms, Faure, Mozart, Schumann and Dvorak. Mr. Stern toured with this quar?tet in February 2000, appearing at Carnegie Hall as well as in Los Angeles and San Francisco. During the 199899 season, Mr. Stern played seasonopening concerts with the New York Philharmonic and the Pittsburgh Symphony, and gave several performances on tour with the Moscow Philharmonic. He also returned to the Miyazaki Festival in Japan, which he helped to inaugurate in 1996.
Mr. Stern has recently been expanding his work with young musicians, as an outgrowth of his highly successful chamber music semi?nars at Carnegie Hall and international music encounters at the Jerusalem Music Centre. Additional encounters during the 199899 season took place in Amsterdam and Cologne, and at the Miyazaki Festival in Japan. In November 1999, Mr. Stern returned to China for seminars in Beijing.
An originating member of the National Endowment for the Arts, Mr. Stern is currently Chairman Emeritus of the AmericaIsrael Cultural Foundation and Chairman and Founder of the Jerusalem Music Centre. As President of Carnegie Hall for nearly forty years, he spearheaded the drives to save the hall from demolition in 1960 and to restore it in 1986. He is the recipient of numerous honors, all among the most prestigious in the performing arts, and holds honorary degrees from many institutions, including Bucknell University, Columbia University, the Curtis Institute of Music, Harvard University, Hebrew University in Jerusalem, the University of Illinois, Johns Hopkins University, The Juilliard School of Music, New York University, Oxford University, the University of Tel Aviv and Yale University. In December 1992 he was awarded the nation's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He has also received high decorations from the govern
ments of France, Japan, Israel and Denmark.
Isaac Stern was born in Kreminiecz, Russia, in 1920, and came to America when he was ten months old. Raised and educated in San Francisco, he started playing the violin at age eight. His principal teacher, Naoum Blinder, was concertmaster of the San Francisco Symphony. After his recital debut at age thirteen, Mr. Stern made his formal orchestral debut in 1936 playing the SaintSaens Violin Concerto No. 3 with the San Francisco Symphony, conducted by Willem Van den Berg. His New York recital debut followed at Town Hall in 1937, with his Carnegie Hall debut occurring in 1943.
Mr. Stern and his wife, Linda, reside in Connecticut. He has three children and five grandchildren. He plays a Guamerius del Gesu violin.
The 2000 Ford Honors Program marks Isaac Stern's thirteenth appearance under UMS auspices. He made his UMS debut at the age of twentysix on May 10, 1947 as soloist with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Maestro Alexander Hilsberg. Since then, Mr. Stern has appeared under UMS auspices five additional times as violin soloist with three orchestral ensembles and has made six individual recital appear?ances. Throughout this remarkable collabo?ration with UMS, Isaac Stern appeared in five May Festivals spanning from 1947 through 1986. Mr. Stern last appeared in Ann Arbor on January 30,1992 in recital at Hill Auditorium with pianist Robert McDonald.
Piano Trio in bflat Major, Op. 1 1 (in)
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Little is known about the compositional his?tory of this trio, but two pieces of documen?tary evidence are available. The theme for the variations in the last movement is from an aria in Joseph Weigl's (17661846) opera L'amor marinaro, which was first performed in Vienna on October 15,1797. Weigl, Haydn's godson and student of Salieri and Albrechtsberger, was a successful composer of German and Italian operas.
Since the publication of the trio score was advertised in Vienna on October 2, 1798, it is safe to assume that it was composed dur?ing that year. The only pertinent information about the circumstances that prompted Beethoven to compose the trio appears in Czerny's Complete Theoretical and Practical Pianoforte School. He stated that the variation theme was chosen at the wish of the clarinetist for whom the trio was written. Czerny does not mention him by name. A.W. Thayer, however, in his monumental biography of the composer, suggests the musician in question is Josef Beer. This theory is qualified with a question mark; however, it is not without foundation. Beer (17441811), a Bohemian clarinet virtuoso who improved the instru?ment by adding a fourth key, lived and played in Vienna. He took the clarinet part in Beethoven's Quintet in Eflat Major for Piano and Winds, Op. 16, in a performance with the composer at the piano on April 2, 1798, six months before the publication of the trio. In spite of its opus number, the quintet is the earlier work. The trio could be the artistic fruit of the collaboration of Beethoven and Beer, who also participated in the first perfor?mance of the septet on April 2,1800.
In any event, Beer was not a casual
friend; for Beer to suggest that Beethoven compose a clarinet trio is highly plausible. Perhaps Beer wished, and Beethoven intended, to create a companion piece to Mozart's Trio for Clarinet, Viola and Piano, K. 498. Beethoven's threemovement structure parallels Mozart's, in which soprano and alto instru?ments are added to the piano. On the other hand, Beethoven chose soprano and tenor instruments. The tenor (cello) also has to function as a bass.
The work appeared with the title Grand Trio pour le Pianoforte avec une Clarinette oil Violon, et Violoncelle, with the dedication to Countess Thun. The lady was a piano student and supporter of Mozart, and her daughter and soninlaw, Prince Lichnowsky, would play a crucial role in the performance history of Fidelio a few years later. Because chamber music was composed primarily for musicmaking at home and amateur clarinetists were scarce, the substitution of violin for clarinet was a forgone conclusion (this is also the case with Mozart's Trio in Eflat Major). Since the eighteenth century, countless amateur musi?cians have played both trios in their alternate versions--the version heard this evening.
The Trio in Bflat Major is shorter than those of Beethoven's Op. 1, because it does not have a scherzo. Yet, it shows technical refine?ment, concentration and a predilection for imi?tative writing. Concluding a largescale work with a variationfinale, Beethoven set the stage on which momentous events were to unfold.

Piano Trio No. 1 in d minor, Op. 49 (II)
Born February 3, 1809 in Hamburg
Died November 4, 1847 in Leipzig
Felix Mendelssohn belonged to a cultivated and wealthy family, and consequently he received a thoroughly sound education in all
academic disciplines. He was a close student of the classics, yet his music abounds in Romanticism. His works even the early ones are beautifully polished and construct?ed; they show much refinement and a fin?ished craftsmanship.
Most members of Mendelssohn's family were dedicated amateur musicians, and the family hosted weekend "home musicales," in which the young Mendelssohn was exposed to the characters and idiosyncrasies of vari?ous musical instruments. On alternate Sunday mornings, musicians and friends of the Mendelssohns stopped by for the musi?cales, and as a teenager Felix took charge of them, choosing the programs, conducting and playing the piano. At age eleven, Mendelssohn had already begun composing chamber music, but aside from an early attempt at age ten, he did not write his first trio for the standard piano, violin and cello combination until age thirty.
Mendelssohn wrote his exuberant Piano Trio in d minor, Op. 49 in the summer of 1839, during a joyful holiday spent with his family in Frankfurt and the Rhineland; the work was completed on September 23, receiv?ing publication the following year. A second trio, the Piano Trio in c minor, followed in 1845. Of these two splendid, mature piano trios, the Piano Trio in d minor caught on immediately and is today considered one of Mendelssohn's greatest achievements. Mendelssohn's friend and admirer, Robert Schumann, wrote of this work, "This is the mastertrio of our time, even as Beethoven's Bflat and D, and Schubert's in Eflat were masterpieces in their day; it is an exceedingly fine composition which will gladden our grandchildren and great grandchildren for many years to come." In his praise for his col?league, Schumann went on to say, "Mendelssohn is the Mozart of the nine?teenthcentury; the most illuminating of musicians, who sees more clearly than others through the contradictions of our era and is the first to reconcile them."
Although the three instruments share motivic materials in this work, the piano stands a bit apart from the strings. In the sec?ond movement, the strings form a duo behind which the piano spreads a backdrop. This may very well be because the virtuoso pianist Ferdinand Hiller asked the composer to "polish up" his part. Nonetheless, the writ?ing flows effortlessly throughout, and no rough edges remain to mar the seamless expanse of melody.
The "Andante con moto tranquillo" brings a short moment of quiet beauty, with the Schumannesque middle section lending a more dramatic mood. The abundance of melody is reminiscent of the composer's own Songs without Words.
Piano Trio No. 3 in c minor, Op. 1O1 (i)
Bom May 7, 1833 in Hamburg, Germany
Died April 3, 1897 in Vienna
Brahms wrote his third and last trio for piano, violin and cello during an especially productive summer vacation in Switzerland (the Cello Sonata in F Major, Op. 99 and the Violin Sonata in A, Op. 100, were also com?posed at the same time). In the Trio, Brahms revisited the key of c minor, a tragic and tur?bulent tonality since the days of Haydn and Mozart.
True to tradition, the opening "Allegro energico" sets the tone for a fourmovement work characterized by predominantly dark colors. Fullbodied chords and tense patterns in dotted rhythm mark the first subject; the second is a lyrical melody (as might be expected), yet it is cut short by an early return of the agitated primary material. The development section combines the two themes in a way that only increases the ten?sion. The recapitulation concludes in a calm
and soothing C Major, but Brahms appended a lengthy coda in c minor, ending the move?ment, as Malcolm MacDonald put it in his 1990 monograph, "in a mood of grim, tragic determination."

SONATA FOR CELLO AND
PIANO IN E MINOR, OP. 38 (I, HO
During his long, productive life, Brahms pub?lished two dozen pieces of chamber music, from duosonatas to sextets, but he may have written and destroyed two or three times as many. Musical ideas from those lost works probably found their way into the other com?positions that he assembled, disassembled, and reassembled through the years, but no critic of the music he published was half as severe on his worksinprogress as he, him?self. He published the Sonata for Cello and Piano in e minor, Op. 38 in 1866, but it had changed radically since he had begun the piece in 1862.
Brahms' original intention was to write a fourmovement cello sonata, with a central slow movement and scherzo, but he stopped after the second. He was dissatisfied with the direction in which he was taking the music, and he hesitated to show it even to such close friends as Clara Schumann, Robert Schumann's widow, and Josef Gansbacher, a singing teacher at the Vienna Conservatory, who also played the cello and who had helped him get a job as conductor of a choral society there. In 1865, Brahms took up the sonata again and converted it into a threemovement work by rewriting the first, discarding the second, and adding two new movements. It is dedi?cated to Gansbacher.
The sonata is a dark, solemn, and stately
work, but, as Brahms wrote to his publisher, "not too difficult to play, for either instru?ment." In the first movement, "Allegro non troppo," the big wideranging melodies are broadly developed. The finale, "Allegro," is a vigorous and powerful fugue on a long sub?ject that seems to have been borrowed, almost exactly, from Bach's The Art of Fugue.
The earliest known public concert per?formance of the sonata was not given until fourandahalf years after it was published, on January 14, 1871. The occasion was a chamber music concert in the Leipzig Gewandhaus: the cellist, Emil Hegar, and the pianist, the wellknown composer Carl Reinecke.

Cantabile in D Major for Violin and Piano, MS 1O9, Op. 17
Born October 27, 1782 in Genoa, Italy
Died May 27, 1840 in Nice
The colorful career of Niccolo Paganini was, in part, a triumph of early "pressagentry." During the years from about 1810 to 1833, he traveled everywhere all over Europe and amassed a huge fortune, giving concerts at which commentators said the devil himself was sometimes to be seen standing with him on stage. He received praise for his wizardry and simultaneous blame for being a charla?tan, but among his great admirers, nonethe?less, were contemporary composers as serious and various as Berlioz, Chopin, Liszt, Mendelssohn, Schubert and Schumann.
Like most of the great virtuosos of his time, Paganini was a prolific composer and played little or nothing but his own music at his concerts. To avoid giving away the secrets of his technique, he allowed almost none of
his music to ever escape his hands. The origi?nal parts of this composition, in his own handwriting, are now at the Biblioteca Casanatense in Rome; his heirs kept the piece hidden until 1922 when it was first published by Universal in Vienna. The date of its com?position is unknown. It is thought that it was perhaps composed for Sivori, an Italian child prodigy and student of Paganini.
A romantic and melodic composition with simplicity of style, this lyrical movement was originally written for violin and guitar. Tonight it will be played in an arrangement by Kinsky and Rothschild for violin and piano.

ZlGEU N ERWE1SEN, OP. 2O,
Pablo de Sarasate
Born March 10, 1844 in Pamplona, Spain
Died September 20, 1908 in Biarritz, France
Pablo Martin Meliton Sarasate y Navascuez is the full name of the Spanish violinist who was one of the great virtuosocomposers of his time. When Queen Isabella of Spain first heard him play, as a tenyearold boy, she generously presented him with a Stradivarius violin and subsidized his studies at the Paris Conservatory. He made his home in France for most of the rest of his life, but an annual visit to Spain was always part of the touring itineraries that took him almost everywhere in Europe and the Americas. SaintSaens, Bruch and Lalo were some of the composers who wrote concertos for him, and it was Lalo's Symphonic espangnole that gave Tchaikovsky the idea for his intensely national Violin Concerto.
George Bernard Shaw, writing as a music critic in London in the 1890s, said that Sarasate played with "a quiet and certain
mastery" and with "exclusive attention to the absolutely musical side of his classical reper?tory." This is testimony enough to the serious, artistic aspect of Sarasate's career. In addition, he was a brilliant virtuoso with a repertoire of dazzling showpieces, among which were many original compositions flavored with recollections of the folk songs and dances of Spain. This one is a medley of gypsy songs, six of them in suddenly contrasting fast and slow tempi, like the Hungarian rhapsodies that Franz Liszt based on gypsy songs from his native country. It is usually known by the German title of its first edition, Zigeunerweisen, which directly translates into "Gypsy Tunes."

Stamberg also coedited Tle Wedding Cake in the Middle of the Road, which was published in 1992 by W.W. Norton. That col?lection grew out of a series of stories Stamberg commissioned for Weekend EditionSunday. The Wedding Cake in the Middle of the Road has been translated into Japanese.
In October of 1996, Stamberg was inducted into The Radio Hall of Fame in Chicago.
In 1994 she was inducted into the Broad?casting and Cable Hall of Fame in New York City. Other recognition includes the Armstrong and Dupont Awards, the Edward R. Murrow Award from the Corporation for Public Broad?casting, Ohio State University's Golden Anniversary Director's Award and the Distinguished Broadcaster Award from the American Women in Radio and Television. She also received a Jefferson Fellowship for Journalism from the EastWest Center in Hawaii.
A native of New York City, Stamberg earned a bachelor's degree from Barnard College and has been awarded numerous honorary degrees including a Doctor of Humane Letters from Dartmouth College. She is a Fellow of Silliman College, Yale University, and serves on the boards of the PENFaulkner Fiction Award Foundation and Northwestern University's Medill School National Arts Journalism program. Stamberg has hosted a number of series on PBS, moder?ated three Fred Rogers television specials for adults, served as commentator, guest or cohost on various commercial TV programs and has appeared as a narrator in performance with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and the National Symphony Orchestra.

EDUCATION & AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT
The 19992000 Education and Audience Development season expanded signifi?cantly on several fronts. It doubled the number of tickets available for K12 students from 9,000 to 18,500, and is even planning on greater expansion in the 20002001 season. This season saw an unprecedented turnout of collegeaged stu?dents and adults in the largest numbers ever -over 50,000 people attended the wide array of educational events sponsored by UMS. This growth and success strengthens UMS' firm commitment to making quality educa?tional experiences a part of everyone's daily experience.
Through dedicated, active committees, including the Education and Audience Development Board SubCommittee, the Teacher Advisory Committee, and over sev?enty community partners, the University Musical Society actively seeks new audiences and expands its commitment to current audi?ence members through a wide variety of activities designed for different ages and learning styles.
The following pages describe our current program and show memorable highlights of the past season. Be sure to check out the UMS fall brochure and the UMS website (www.ums.org) for details on the exciting and diverse array of educational events for the 20002001 season, which will include major residencies by the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Liz Lerman Dance Exchange.
THE 19992000 SEASON INCLUDED:
A STELLAR YOUTH PERFORMANCE SERIES
Nearly 19,000 students and teachers attended performances of Amalia Hernandez' Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, Donald Byrd's The Harlem Nutcracker, Boys Choir of Harlem, Doudou N'Diaye Rose: Drummers of West Africa, New York City Opera National Company: Barber of Seville, Ballet d'Afrique Noir: The Mandinka Epic, and Trisha Brown Dance Company. Each classroom received teacher resource and learning materials, audiotapes, videotapes and posters.
In its second year, First Acts sponsored nearly 500 students to attend classical music con?certs. This unique program tries to eliminate the barriers that prevent teachers and stu?dents from attending UMS performances by providing free bussing, subsidized tickets, and advanced educational materials.
UMS Teacher workshop Series
Teaching educators how to incorporate arts education into their daily instruction is of primary concern to UMS, which is why UMS continues to partner with the Ann Arbor Public Schools (AAPS) and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District (WISD) to help
facilitate teacher professional development. As part of the Kennedy Center: Partners in Education Program, UMS, AAPS and WISD are able to bring the world's best teacher workshops to southeastern Michigan, and this past year, nearly 300 teachers participated in eight workshops as part of this nationally recognized program.
The University Musical Society has consistently provided family performances to southeast?ern Michigan for nearly a decade, and it will continue to do so in the future. Recognizing the importance of shared learning and parental involvement in their children's appreciation of the performing arts, UMS offered four opportunities for family learning with Ballet Folklorico de Mexico, Boys Choir of Harlem, Jazz at Lincoln Center Sextet and New York City Opera National Company.
SCHOOL DISTRICTS THAT PARTICIPATED IN THE UMS YOUTH PERFORMANCE
Schools Romulus Saline Southfield South Lyon Taylor Temperance Toledo, Ohio Walled Lake West Bloomfield Whit mo re Lake Windsor, Ontario Woodhaven Wyandotte Ypsilanti
Master of Arts Public Interview Series
Aside from the performance, UMS offers a series of public interviews that allow artists to speak about their art forms, their careers and take questions from the community. Each year, UMS selects artists who offer compelling insights into their world, and this season nearly 1,500 people attended the series of seven interviews by Laurie Anderson, Ushio Amagatsu, Bebe Miller, Murray Perahia, Meredith Monk, Doudou N'Diaye Rose, Chen ShiZheng with Akira Matsui and Trisha Brown.
PREPS AND MEET THE ARTIST EVENTS
Providing context and understanding about a performance, prior to and just after the per?formance, is one of UMS' keys for enhanc?ing our audiences' performance experience. Throughout the season nearly 7,000 people attended our PREPs (Performance Related Educational Presentations) and Meet the Artist postperformance stage dialogues.
This season, UMS developed more ground?breaking interaction with artists, via partner?ship and collaboration, than ever before. Nearly 22,000 people participated in University of Michigan minicourses, sym?posia, lectures, master classes, and a wide variety of communitydeveloped events. UMS builds partnerships with over seventy community organizations and individuals to help procure, market, and involve a wide variety of learners throughout southeastern Michigan. Of special significance were the multifaceted residences of the Russian National Orchestra, the Jazz at Lincoln Center Sextet, the Watts Prophets with Toni Blackman, the artists featured in the produc?tion of Forgiveness and the community work for The Harlem Nutcracker.
The UMS Education and Audience Development Department also collaborates with over fifty local, regional and national organizations including:
