I'm delighted to welcome you to this performance presented by the University Musical Society (UMS) of the University of Michigan. Thank you for supporting the performing arts in our community by your attendance at this event. Please consider coming to some of our other performances this season. You'll find a complete listing beginning on page 29. UMS, now in our 122nd year, was recently recognized by Musical America as one of the five most influential performing arts present?ing organizations in the US. The others were Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Cal Performances at Berkeley. We were cited for our commitment to quality, diversity, education, community engagement, and commissioning new work from composers and choreographers. We are excited about this recognition and pleased that our 20002001 season continues our commitment to these important goals.
This season UMS will present ninety per?formances for a total audience expected to exceed 125,000 people. If current trends con?tinue, over 30 of the audience will be first-time UMS ticket purchasers, reflecting UMS' efforts to embrace all of the people in our community and to welcome them to the nine performance venues that we rent throughout southeastern Michigan. We expect to host more than 200 educational events, serving
more than 60,000 people.
More than half of our presentations this season feature artists and ensembles from outside the US, representing more than twenty nations. We will close our regular season with a UMS co-commission and world premiere featuring the Ping Chong Company and Ensemble Sequentia, bringing the number of new music and dance pieces UMS has commissioned over the past decade to twenty-five, most of them in partnership with other presenters from throughout the world.
We are able to maintain our distinctiveness thanks to you who make up our audience and to the corporations, foundations, govern?ment agencies, and thousands of individuals and families who support us through their contributions. During this extraordinary season, when, for example, UMS and the University of Michigan partner with the Royal Shakespeare Company to bring four

of Shakespeare's extraordinary history plays to Ann Arbor in an exclusive US presentation, we must raise more than half of our $8-million budget from donations. I invite you to help us in this effort by becoming a UMS member this season. For more information about membership, turn to page 45. And if you haven't done so already, consider purchasing a copy of BRAVO!, our award-winning 224-page table-top book containing recipes, legends, and lore from 120 years of UMS history. It makes a great gift, and all proceeds benefit UMS.
Overseeing our fundraising efforts with great skill is Christina Thoburn, our newly-appointed Director of Development whom I hope you'll be able to get to know. Christina came to us in April 2000 from The Cleveland Orchestra where she led foundation and gov?ernment relations. Her career also includes being managing director of the Cleveland Chamber Symphony where she developed a passion for diverse programming and community engagement. An avid knitter and baseball fan, Christina is married and the mother of three grown children. She succeeds Catherine Arcure, who left UMS to work with violinist Itzhak Perlman in New York City as Executive Director of the Perlman Music Program.
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
On behalf of the UMS Board of Directors, I am delighted to wel?come you to the 20002001 season. With world-renowned perform?ers bringing their artistry to our stages, new community partnerships enhanc?ing our programs, and our ever-expanding
educational activities serv?ing thousands of students and teachers throughout southeastern Michigan, it is the most exciting and comprehensive season in our 122-year history. As we enjoy tonight's
performance, we want to recognize and thank the many individuals, companies, organiza?tions and foundations whose support makes this extraordinary season possible. In con?tributing to UMS, these donors, including the corporate leaders listed on the following pages, have publicly recognized the impor?tance of the arts in our community. They have demonstrated their commitment to the quality of life in our area, and helped create new educational opportunities for students and audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
So, as we applaud tonight's performers, please join all of us at UMS in applauding our many generous contributors. They are playing an important role in the artistic life of our community, and we are truly grateful for their support.

The goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is clear: to engage, educate, and serve Michigan audi?ences 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 121 years, strong leader?ship coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally-recognized performing arts presenters. Indeed, Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this 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 per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University
Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and 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 from the full spectrum of the perform?ing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensem?bles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works,
Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999.
youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts over eighty performances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center for the Performing Arts, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Detroit Opera House, Music Hall and the Residential College Auditorium.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor cam?pus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contri?butions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
Throughout its 121-year history, the University Musical Society 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 known for its definitive per?formances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Seven years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when 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 accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire. 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).
The Choral Union is a talent pool capable of performing choral music of every genre. In addition to choral masterworks, the Choral
Union has recently 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. The Choral Union's 36-voice Chamber Chorale 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 1999-2000 season, the Choral Union performed in three major subscription series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, including performances of Shostakovitch's Symphony No. 13 (Babi Yar), and Igor Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, all conducted by Neeme Jarvi, as well as John Adams' Harmonium, conducted by the composer. Other programs included Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra and Scriabin's Symphony No. 5 with the Russian National Orchestra.
During the current season, the UMS Choral Union will again appear in two series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, both conducted by Neeme Jarvi. The chorus will join in the DSO's opening night performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection), followed later in the season by Carl Orff's Carmina Burana. The Choral Union's 122nd-annual performances of Messiah follow, as the choir is joined by world-class soloists and the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. The chorus will make its debut with the Kalamazoo Symphony in March 2001, performing Mendelssohn's rarely-heard Symphony No. 2. The Choral Union's season will close on April 22, 2001, in a performance of Hector Berlioz' Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra and members of the U-M School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium, conducted by Thomas Sheets.
Participation in the Choral Union remains
open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997.
Hill Auditorium
Standing tall and proud in the heart of the University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is associated with the best perform?ing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the Twentieth 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 relationships throughout the past eighty-seven 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
Hill Auditorium
Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. The auditori?um seated 4,597 when it first opened; subse?quent renovations, which increased the size of the stage to accommodate both an orchestra and a large chorus (1948) and improved wheelchair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, present?ed in an assortment of venues including University Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which houses the 1,129-seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4-million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher-level educa?tion, 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
Power Center
University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal govern?ment were unlikely to provide financial sup?port for the construction of a new theatre.
The Power Center opened in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote).
No seat in the Power Center is more than 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.
Due to renovations to Burton Memorial Tower, the Power Center will be home to the UMS Box Office for the duration of the cur?rent season.
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 around $600,000 when it was first built. 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. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best
of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986. In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000 and the balcony and backstage will be restored during 2001.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed 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 dedi?cated 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 splen?did 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 build?ing, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoy?ment and contemplation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS recently began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with UMS' programmatic 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 as well as the venue of choice for the world premiere of Curse of the Gold: Myths from the Icelandic Edda, part of UMS' new International Theater Festival.
Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000 square foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 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 col?laboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia Entertainment, formed a part?nership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 performers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality program?ming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Music Hall
Originally called the Wilson Theatre, Music Hall was completed in 1928 with funds provided by Matilda Wilson (Mrs. Alfred G.). William E. Kapp of Smith, Hinchman & Grylls, an architectural firm whose works dominated
Detroit's skyline of the 1920s, designed the Art Deco-style edifice. Terra-cotta Greek masks adorn the exterior, and elaborate molded plaster and stenciling complement the interior. The theatre's purpose of offering legitimate productions was initially fulfilled,
but during the Depression its lights dimmed except on sporadic occasions. From 1946 through 1949, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra occupied the structure which was renamed Music Hall. During the 1950s and 1960s, area residents came to the theatre to enjoy cinema. Now the home of the Music Hall Center, Music Hall is restored to its original use and appearance.
The Residential College Auditorium
The Residential College (RC) is an academic unit within the College of Literature, Science and the Arts (LSA), with roughly sixty faculty and 900 students, offering a four-year liberal arts education and a unique living-learning expe?rience in the East Quadrangle -one of the University's student residence complexes. A few years after the opening of the RC in 1967, the RC Auditorium was construct?ed in an alcove between exterior brick walls of the northern and southern parts of East Quad (these walls are still visible). In line with the founding philosophy of the RC Drama Program, the
Auditorium incorporates a thrust stage; more than 200 people can be seated around the stage on the main floor and in an overhanging bal?cony.
The Auditorium has been used as a class?room, lecture hall, movie theater and concert hall, as well as the site for hundreds of pro-
ductions by the RC Drama Program, the RC's "Brecht Company" (staging more than a dozen of Brecht's works), the RC's "Deutsches Theater" (performing plays in German), and the student-run "RC Players." Dramatic pro-
ductions at the Auditorium have ranged from Euripides to Sam Shepard and have included numerous student-written plays--some of them awarded Hopwood Prizes. Other events include Professor Peter Arnott's marionette realizations of Greek tragedies, Asian theater demon?strations, Native American danc?ing, a complete production of Mozart's Cost fan tutti, and a monodrama by lesbian activist Holly Hughes. The RC Auditorium has also been the site of readings by many promi?nent writers, including poets Allen Ginsberg, Jerome Rothenberg and John Sinclair as well as authors Christopher Curtis and John Hawkes.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmarks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet.
The familiar home of UMS Administrative offices undergoes
significant renovations this season, moving the UMS Box Office to a new, temporary location in the Power Center.
UMS Administrative offices have also been relocated--to 109 E. Madison--but please continue to use our Burton Memorial Tower mailing address.

Keith Jarrett and Jack Dejohnette first played together in 1966-68 as members of the Charles Lloyd Quartet, then for one year in 1970 with Miles Davis. The trio first performed together in 1977, when Jarrett and Dejohnette played on Gary Peacock's first ECM Records recording, Tales of Another. They came together as a permanent trio in 1983, when Jarrett invited the other two to join him in New York for a recording session dedicated to playing "standards," the rich body of American popular songs from the 1930s, '40s and '50s. At the time it was considered passe for top players to concen-
trate on standards, instead of original material, but Keith Jarrett thought it was important to show that "music wasn't about material, but what the player brings to the material."
The 1983 sessions produced the trio's first three ECM releases Standards Vol. 1 & 2, and Changes. Eight "live" concert record?ings followed on ECM, each recorded in a different international city: Standards Live (Paris 1985), Still Live (Munich 1986), Changeless (US Tour 1987), Tribute (Cologne 1989), Standards in Norway (Oslo 1989), The Cure (New YorkTown Hall 1990), Tokyo '96, and Keith Jarrett At The Blue Note: The Complete Recordings, a spe?cial 6-CD box set that captured the trio's complete, sold out, three-night engagement
at the Blue Note jazz club in New York in June 1994 which was voted "Album of the Year" in the 1996 Downbeat Critics Poll. In October 2000, ECM will release Whisper Not, a 2-CD set of the trio's July 1999 con?cert in Paris. And in October 1991, exactly two weeks after the death of Miles Davis, the trio went into New York's Power Station stu?dio and recorded Bye Bye Blackbird, their deeply felt tribute to the jazz giant that all three had played with in their early years.
Video releases include: Standards I (1985), Standards II (1986) and Live at Open Theatre East 1993 and Tokyo Concert '96-all featuring full concert performances.
In the past four?teen years, the trio has been nominated for many interna?tional awards. They have been nominated for three American Grammy nomina?tions (including one in early 1999 for Tokyo '96), plus dozens of "Record of the Year" and Critics
Prize awards from the US, European and Japanese music press, including France's top recording award, the "Prix du President de la Republique" from the Charles Cros Academy for the "Best Record of 1991" for Tribute. The trio was voted "Best Acoustic Jazz Group" in the 1998 and 1999 Downbeat Reader's Polls.
t the time [1983] it was considered passe for top players to concentrate on standards, instead of original material, but Keith Jarrett thought it was important to show that 'music wasn't about material, but what the player brings to the material.'
Over the past thirty-five years, Keith Jarrett has come to be rec?ognized as one of the most cre?ative and uncompromising artists on the international music scene. Universally acclaimed as a master jazz pianist and improviser, he has expanded his musical explorations with award-winning
classical recordings of music by Bach, Handel, Mozart, and Shostakovich, and with compositions for orchestra, chamber and jazz groups, and for soloist.
Born in 1945 in Allentown (PA), he began playing piano at age three and began classical studies at age seven. He undertook formal composition studies at age fifteen. In the early-1960s, while still a teenager, he began playing jazz. He toured with Art Blakey, then for three years with Charles Lloyd, and finally with Miles Davis. By the late-'60s, he was leading his own trio, then a quartet, and recording as a leader for Atlantic, Columbia and Impulse Records.
In 1971, he began an exclusive record?ing collaboration with ECM Records, the visionary German label headed by producer Manfred Eicher. This collaboration has pro?duced nearly sixty recordings to date, unparalleled in their diversity and scope, including thirteen trio recordings (on twen?ty CDs) with Peacock and Dejohnette; nine classical recordings of music by Bach, Handel, Mozart, Shostakovich, and Jarrett's groundbreaking solo piano recordings such as Koln Concert and La Scala, which have helped to redefine the piano in contempo?rary music. His most recent solo CD, The Melody At Night, With You, a solo studio recording of songs, was released in 1999 and has already become one of the best selling jazz CDs of the past ten years, winning innumerable awards worldwide including "Best of The Year" awards in Japan, France and the US.
Jarrett has garnered many other awards including six Grammy nominations, several French Grand Prix du Disque and German Deutsche Schallplattenpries awards. In 1989, the French Ministry of Culture elected him an Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters, one of the highest honors the French nation can bestow upon an artist. In 1996, he was elected a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music, joining Duke Ellington
as only the second foreign jazz artist to be so honored. He was voted "Best Pianist of the Year" in the Downbeat Readers Polls in 1994,1996 and 1999; and in the Downbeat Critic's Poll in 1996 and 2000.
In 1995, Jarrett became the first musi?cian to perform improvised music at La Scala, the famed opera house in Milan. A recording of this historic concert was released to international acclaim in 1997.
Tonight's concert marks Keith Jarrett's debut under UMS auspices.
Gary Peacock has served as an inspiration for a new generation of jazz bass players, not content with the traditional bassist's role of simple time-keeping and har?monic accompaniment. His ability to bring melodic and rhythmic freedom into any musical setting has been his trademark for forty years.
Born in 1935 in Idaho, Peacock first played in Los Angeles in the late-1950s with Bud Shank, Barney Kessel, Hampton Hawes, and Paul Bley. By the early-'60s, he was in New York playing with Bill Evans, Miles Davis, Albert Ayler, Archie Shepp, Sonny Rollins and others. He moved to Japan for several years in the late-'60s to study Oriental philosophy and medicine, before returning to the US in the early-70s to resume active music-making and to teach at the Cornish Institute in Seattle. Over the years he has also worked with Sarah Vaughn, Chick Corea, Joe Henderson, Helen Merrill, Michel Petrucianni, Don Pullen, and Bill Frisell.
In recent years, Peacock's other major collaborations include duo work with gui?tarist Ralph Towner, and two different piano trio settings featuring either Paul Bley or Marilyn Crispell backed by Peacock and drummer Paul Motian.
In the past twenty-five years, Peacock has played on over twenty-five ECM Records recordings.
Tonight's concert marks Gary Peacock's debut under UMS auspices.
Jack Dejohnette is one of the finest drummers in jazz today. His approach to the drums is that of a complete musician, exploring the varied colors and timbres of his instru?ments, rather than simple time-keeping.
Born in 1942 in Chicago, Dejohnette studied classical music and piano for ten years as a youth. In the mid-1960s he joined Muhal Richard Abrams and Roscoe Mitchell as a member of AACM, Chicago's pioneer?ing avant-garde ensemble of creative impro?vising musicians. He headed to New York in 1966 playing first with Jackie McLean, Betty Carter and Abbey Lincoln, before joining the Charles Lloyd Quartet. By 1967, he was playing with many of the period's greatest improvisers including Bill Evans, John Coltrane, Thelonius Monk and Stan Getz, before joining Miles Davis in 1968 to record the quintessential jazz-rock fusion record, Bitches Brew, along with John McLaughlin, Chick Corea, and Dave Holland. After a few years with Miles, Dejohnette moved on and began recording as leader and sideman with most of the finest players in jazz. In the 1970s, he founded New Directions featuring John Abercrombie, Eddie Gomez and Lester Bowie, followed by Special Edition, and then the Gateway Trio with Dave Holland and John Abercrombie, which is still an active trio today.
Dejohnette has also been featured in recent years on high-profile CD releases by Herbie Hancock, Betty Carter, Sonny Rollins, Joe Henderson, Milton Nascimento, and Michael Brecker, as well as many ses?sions with young emerging players that he
feels are deserving of greater attention.
In 1972, he began a twenty-five-year recording collaboration with ECM Records, where he has played on over forty record?ings with his varied groups as a leader, as a sideman, and as a member of the trio with Jarrett and Peacock.
Other recent projects included a Spring 1999 tour with the World Saxophone Quartet, dates with Danilo Perez and gui?taristbassist Jerome Harris and duo work with keyboardist David Sancious.
Dejohnette has garnered many awards including France's prestigious Grand Prix du Disque (1979), "Album of the Year" awards in the 1984 Downbeat Readers Poll and 1989 Critics Poll, and Swing Journal (Japan). He has the distinction of being voted "Best Drummer" for an unprecedented thirteen straight years (1980-92) in the Downbeat Reader's Poll. In 1991, Boston's Berklee College of Music named him an Honorary Doctor of Music. In 1997, he appeared on the Grammy Awards with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Natalie Cole in a tribute to Ella Fitzgerald, and was a featured musi?cian in the film, Blues Brothers 2000.
Tonight's concert marks Jack Dejohnette's debut under VMS auspices.

Heifetz' Influence
on Twentieth-Century Violin Performance
By Peter Laki
In his recent autobiography, My First 79 Years, Isaac Stern calls Itzhak Perlman "perhaps the most success?ful violinist since Heifetz." And he credits Jascha Heifetz with being "the single most dominant influence in the twentieth century" for all string players. It is hardly a coincidence that one of the leading violinists from the generation between Heifetz and Perlman links those two names together. Looking both backwards and for?wards, Stern identified the two artists who, perhaps more than anyone else, epitomize the star violinist for their respective eras.
Volumes have been written about Heifetz' artistry, by people who were fortu?nate enough to hear this legend live, as well as by those who only know him through his extensive recorded legacy. Invariably, they mention the superhuman flawlessness of his technique, the perfection of each note and a magical sound. His stellar career, which started with triumphs as a child prodigy, brought him to the US as a young man, and although he was not the only student of the St. Petersburg school of great Leopold Auer to arrive at these shores, he became, without a doubt, the supreme representative of the Russian tradition of violin playing. His repertoire ranged from Bach through the great concertos and chamber music works of the nineteenth century to virtuoso show?pieces and selected twentieth-century com?positions of the more traditional ilk--a rather wide assortment of music to which he brought a musical personality that was
Ithough Heifetz was not the only
student of the St. Petersburg school of great Leopold Auer to arrive at US shores, he became, without a doubt, the supreme representative of the Russian tradition of violin playing.

genetically incapable of missing a note.
Twentieth-century violin playing was never the same after him; the stakes had been raised to incredible heights and the challenge facing younger players was enor?mous.
In our time, no violinist has come clos?er to attaining the legendary status of Heifetz as Itzhak Perlman. It goes without saying that Perlman has had Heifetz' sound in his ears--what's more, in his blood-since he picked up his first fiddle.
Mr. Perlman himself has accumulated a prodigiously rich discography that, more?over, contains several works either written for, or popularized by, Heifetz. These include not only the concertos of William Walton and Erich Maria Korngold (which have been taken up by many violinists) but also rarities such as the Halvorsen Passacaglia for violin and viola or Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's concerto The Prophets. Mr. Perlman has also recorded Heifetz' arrangements of the Gershwin preludes and of "Golliwogg's Cake Walk" by Debussy. There is no doubt that Itzhak Perlman has a special affinity for Heifetz' preferred repertoire and, moreover, his style of playing, although he has of course embraced the major twentieth-centu?ry concertos of Bartok, Berg, Stravinsly, and Barber, which Heifetz had never performed. And it goes without saying that his supreme originality as a musician is evident in every note he plays. Yet, in a STRAD magazine sur?vey of the 21 -CD set of recordings released by EMI for Perlman's fiftieth birthday, Henry Roth repeatedly compares the two violinists, and concludes by saying:
Perlman has contributed more to expressive, sentiment-tinctured violin performance than any violinist in the post-Kreisler, Heifetz, Elman, Menuhin and Oistrakh era. He, more than any other contemporary, represents and continues the historic traditions of violin art.
attributed to Tommaso Vitali Born 1663 in Bologna, Italy Died 1745 in Modena, Italy
Tommaso Vitali was an Italian composer and violinist active in the city of Modena who published four volumes of instrumen?tal music there between 1693 and 1701. It is an interesting paradox that the present Chaconne, the only piece Vitali is remem?bered by today, is probably not by him at all. It came down to us in an anonymous man?uscript that was ascribed to Vitali only in the nineteenth century.
Questions of authorship aside, this Chaconne is one of the most popular virtu?oso works for the violin from the Baroque period. A Chaconne is a form of variation over a four-note descending bass line, which is played here by the piano before the vio?lin's first entrance. The variations, played without breaks, are increasingly more demanding as the piece proceeds.
Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-flat Major, Op. 18
Richard Strauss Born June 11, 1864 in Munich Died September 8, 1949 in Garmisch-Partenkirchen
The Violin Sonata dates from the period in Richard Strauss' life when he was making his historic transition from the Brahmsian universe of "absolute" music into the New German world of programmatic composi?tions. The twenty-three-year-old composer abandoned the classical chamber genres to which he had made several contributions in previous years, and set his sights on Lisztian symphonic poem and Wagnerian opera, to which he would devote most of his energies in the following decades. The Violin Sonata
is a transitional work, written in a conven?tional form but informed by an entirely new musical aesthetic. Everything in this work seems to function on a symphonic rather than a chamber-music scale, starting with the very first piano motif whose angular rhythms foreshadow Don Juan; some of the later melodies have a definite operatic sweep to them. Sonata form, with its requisite con?trasting themes, development and recapitu?lation, nominally still holds sway in the opening "Allegro ma non troppo," but the music's passion overflows the structural bounds of the form and creates a movement that seems to be defined by cycles of dra?matic outbursts and moments of lyrical reflection rather than by any classical con?siderations.
The second movement, "Improvisation," is a beautiful "song without words" that is sometimes performed separately. The highly ornate cantabile (singing) movement includes a passionate middle section, before the initial theme returns in an even more richly embellished rendering.
A somber piano introduction opens the third-movement "Finale," erupting in a brilliant "Allegro" that takes the level of virtuosity required of both players to dizzy?ing heights. The sequence of wide-spanned melodies and no less grandiose virtuoso figurations is only occasionally interrupted by lighter, scherzo-like episodes. As a final surprise, Strauss introduces an extensive coda in a new time signature (a faster 68 as opposed to the earlier 34). This section is almost a separate movement in its own right, ending the sonata on a climactic point of maximum excitement.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded to a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, he has come to be recognized by audiences all over the world who respond not only to his flawless technique, but also to the irrepressible joy of making music which he communicates. Born in Israel in 1945, Mr. Perlman completed his initial training at the Academy of Music in Tel Aviv. He came to New York and soon was propelled into the international arena with an appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show in 1958. Following his studies at The Juilliard School with Ivan Galamian and Dorothy DeLay, Mr. Perlman won the prestigious Leventritt Competition in 1964, which led to a burgeoning world?wide career.
Since then, Itzhak Perlman has appeared with every major orchestra and in recitals and festivals throughout the world. In November of 1987 he joined the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra for history-making concerts in Warsaw and Budapest, repre?senting the first performances by this orchestra and soloist in Eastern bloc coun?tries. He again made history as he joined the Israel Philharmonic for its first visit to the Soviet Union in AprilMay of 1990, and was cheered by audiences in Moscow and Leningrad who thronged to hear his recital and orchestral performances. In December of 1994 he joined the Israel Philharmonic for their first visits to China and India.
In December 1990, Mr. Perlman visited Russia for the second time to participate in a gala performance in Leningrad celebrating the 150th anniversary of Tchaikovsky's birth. This concert, which also featured Yo-Yo Ma, Jessye Norman, and Yuri Temirkanov con?ducting the Leningrad Philharmonic, was televised live in Europe and later broadcast throughout the world, and is now available
on home video (RCABMG Classics). In December 1993, Mr. Perlman visited the city of Prague in the Czech Republic to perform in a Dvorak gala concert with Yo-Yo Ma, Frederica von Stade, Rudolf Firkusny and the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Seiji Ozawa. This concert was also tele?vised live with a later worldwide broadcast and was released on CD and home video (Sony Classical) in 1994.
Itzhak Perlman has been honored with four Emmy Awards, most recently for the PBS documentary Fiddling for the Future, a film about the Perlman Summer Music Program and his work as a teacher and con?ductor in that program. His previous Emmy Award recognized his dedication to Klezmer music, as featured in the PBS television spe?cial In the Fiddler's House. This Klezmer music program was filmed in Poland in 1995, and later released in home video and audio formats. A highly successful national
tour of In the Fiddler's House in the summer of 1996 was followed by a second Klezmer music recording released by EMI: Live in the Fiddler's House (from Radio City Music Hall, 1996). Subsequent Klezmer tours have included concerts in Mexico, at the Hollywood Bowl, and at major North American summer festivals.
Mr. Perlman's recordings regularly appear on the best-seller charts and have
won fifteen Grammy Awards. His most recent Grammy was awarded in 1996 for The American Album, with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Other recent releases include Cinema Serenade and Cinema Serenade 2, both albums featuring popu?lar hits from movies, with John Williams conducting the Pittsburgh Symphony and Boston Pops Orchestra (Sony), a recording of the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto and the Brahms Double Concerto with Yo-Yo Ma, Daniel Barenboim and the Chicago Symphony (Teldec), and a la Carte, a recording of short violin pieces with orches?tra (EMI). Throughout 1995 EMI honored Mr. Perlman on the occasion of his fiftieth birthday as "Artist of the Year"
with the release of a 21-disc set entitled The Itzhak Perlman Collection. The release of this set coincided with The Definitive Perlman Experience festival in London in which Mr. Perlman performed seven concertos in four concerts at the Royal Festival Hall.
During the past two years, Mr. Perlman has also appeared on the conductor's podi?um, further delighting his audiences through this medium. He has appeared as conduc?torsoloist with the Chicago Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Dallas, Detroit,
Houston, National, Pittsburgh, Seattle and Toronto symphonies, at the Ravinia and OK Mozart festivals, with the St. Paul and New York chamber orchestras, and with the Israel Philharmonic and the English Chamber Orchestra. In the 2000-2001 season his con?ducting debuts include engagements with Boston and San Francisco symphonies and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. In January 2000 he was named Principal Guest Conductor for the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, a post he begins in September 2001.
Numerous publications and institutions have paid tribute to Itzhak Perlman for the unique place he occupies in the artistic and humanitarian fabric of our times. Newsweek magazine featured him with a cover story in April of 1980, and in 1981 Musical America pictured him as "Musician of the Year" on the cover of its annual edition. Harvard, Yale, Brandeis, Roosevelt, Yeshiva and Hebrew universities are among the institu?tions that have awarded him honorary degrees. President Reagan honored Mr. Perlman with a "Medal of Liberty" in 1986.
On television, Mr. Perlman has enter?tained and enlightened millions of viewers of all ages on shows as diverse as The Late Show with David Letterman, Sesame Street, the PBS series The Frugal Gourmet, The Tonight Show, the Grammy awards telecasts, several Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts, and the PBS specials A Musical Toast and Mozart by the Masters, both of which he hosted. In 1992, the PBS documentary of his historic trip to the Soviet Union with the Israel Philharmonic, entitled Perlman in Russia (AngelEMI video), was honored with an Emmy award as best music docu?mentary. In July of 1994, Mr. Perlman was seen by millions of viewers when he hosted the US broadcast of the Three Tenors, Encore! live from Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles.
One of Mr. Perlman's proudest achieve?ments was his collaboration with film score composer John Williams in Steven Spielberg's Academy Award-winning film Schindler's List in which he performed the violin solos.
His presence on stage, on camera and in personal appearances of all kinds speaks eloquently on behalf of the disabled, and his devotion to their cause is an integral part of his life.
This afternoon's recital marks Itzhak Perlman's ninth appearance under UMS aus?pices. Mr. Perlman made his UMS debut on April 26, 1970 performing Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2 with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Thor Johnson during the 1970 May Festival.
Throughout his magnificent career, Jascha Heifetz made eleven UMS appearances as violin soloist and recitalist between 1919 and 1953. Mr. Heifetz made his UMS debut on December 4, 1919 in a violin recital at Hill Auditorium.
Rohan De Silva's partnership with violin virtuoso Itzhak Perlam, Cho-Liang Lin, Midori, Joshua Bell, Benny Kim, Kyoko Takezawa, Vadim Repin, Gil Shaham, Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, and Julian Rachlin have led to highly acclaimed performances at recital venues all over the world. With these and other artists he has performed at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center's Avery Fisher Hall and Alice Tully Hall, the Kennedy Center, Library of Congress, Philadelphia Academy of Music, Ambassador Theater in Los Angeles, Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, Wigmore Hall in London, Suntory Hall in Tokyo, the Mozarteum in Salzburg and La Scala in Milan. His Festival appearances include the Aspen, Interlochen, Manchester,
Ravinia and Schleswig-Holstein festivals, the Pacific Music Festival in Sapporo, Japan, and the Wellington Arts Festival in New Zealand. He performs frequently with Itzhak Perlman, and last season was seen with Mr. Perlman on the Live from Lincoln Center broadcast in early January 2000. During the summer of 2000 he also participated in the Perlman Music Program on Long Island.
Mr. De Silva, a native of Sri Lanka, began his piano studies with his mother, the late Primose De Silva and with the late Mary Billimoria. He spent six years at the Royal Academy of Music in London as a student
of Hamish Milne, Sydney Griller, and Wilfred Parry. While in London he received many awards including the Grover Bennett Scholarship, the Christian Carpenter Prize, the Martin Music Scholarship, the Harold Craxton Award for advanced
study in England, and, upon his graduation, the Chappell Gold Medal for best overall performance at the Royal Academy. Mr. De Silva was the first recipient of a special scholarship in the arts from the President Fund of Sri Lanka. This enabled him to enter The Juilliard School, where he received both his Bachelor and Master of Music degrees, studying piano with Martin Canin, chamber music with Felix Galimir, and working closely with violin pedagogue Dorothy DeLay. He was awarded a special prize as "Best Accompanist" at the 1990 Ninth International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow.
Mr. De Silva joined the collaborative arts and chamber music faculty of The Juilliard School in 1991, and in 1992 was awarded honorary Associate of the Royal Academy of Music. Radio and television

On Religious And Church Music
By Georgi Petkov
In all historical times music was regarded as a supreme art allowing for the best expression of religious feelings. It has been and will remain the most intelligible language for prayer communion between God and man. As early as the ancient times, the pagan religious cults have exploited the miraculous impact of the art of music on the souls of worshippers during religious rites and sacrifices.
The Christian religion has also intro?duced music as an integral constituent of the worshipping service. Following the example of Jesus Christ, who sang out loud at the Last Supper with the Holy Apostles, the Christian Church, from the very begin?ning of its existence has established and canonised vocal music as the most suitable manner of temple performance, resting on the conviction that human voice is the most perfect musical instrument.
The theory of Eastern Church chants (which are still employed by the Orthodox Church) was set up by St. John of Damascus in the seventh century. From the multiple religious hymns performed by the various Christian communities, St. John of Damascus chose only those which he thought most suitable for the uniform use by the Church and compiled the so-called Vocal Eight-Part Chants Book, which is still in use by the Orthodox Church. The Octoich by St. John of Damascus is strictly defined within certain limits specifically restricting melodic variation.
Bulgaria adopted Christianity as its offi?cial religion in 865. About the same time, the brothers St. Cyril and St. Methodius cre?ated the Slavonic alphabet (the Cyrillic alphabet), which allowed for religious scrip?tures to be translated into the Slavonic lan?guages, whereupon services began to be per-
formed in the language of everyday use. These events served as the impetus of a tremendous cultural and political bloom, which continued for the following two cen?turies.
The development of Eastern Orthodox singing saw another turning point between the thirteenth and the fourteenth centuries when the Byzantine emperor assigned John Kukuzel (The One Blessed with an Angel Voice)--a famous Bulgarian church musi?cologist of the time--to create a new fash?ion of singing: more solemn and impressive than that of John of Damascus, so that it could correspond to the grandeur of the Byzantine Empire. John Kukuzel accom?plished his assignment very successfully and created the new type of singing which was called Papadic singing. He had left to the future generations a legacy of musical com?positions of unattainable beauty and per?forming challenge, one of the most brilliant being Selected Multiple Psalms to the Bulgarian Woman. The artist dedicated this work to his mother and used in it motifs from Bulgarian folk songs, which he had heard from his mother as a child. This set up the beginning of artistic singing in the Orthodox Church.
Another dramatic turn of Bulgarian history was the enslavement of the country by the Turks, which lasted from the end of the fourteenth to the end of the nineteenth centuries. Bulgarian cultural achievements were subjected to mass destruction and crit?icism. Ancient Greek (which was incompre?hensible even to contemporary speakers of Greek) was restored as the language of wor?shipping service. Subsequently, the tradition of church singing was handed down orally --just like the folk song. This, in its course, provided for the mutual influence between folk and church music. All church chants composed between the fourteenth and the seventeenth centuries have reached us as anonymous works handed down from
mouth to mouth. They were carried through Moldavia to Russia where they were preserved and used in the Russian religious services. In scientific theory this phenome?non is known as The Second Southern Slavonic Impact. This process explains how the artistic creation of various authors, both familiar and anonymous, was preserved in the treasury of Bulgarian music culture.
The program of Antique Eastern Orthodox Chants includes presentations of religious music compositions created in the period between the fourteenth and the sev?enteenth centuries. Regardless of the distant historical time when they were created, these artistic works of religious music are still being used in the worshipping practice of the Bulgarian Orthodox Church. The first part of the program comprises the most popular pieces of the first Bulgarian com?poser St. John Kukuzel, the One Blessed with an Angel Voice (1280-1360).
This evening's second part of the program contains works by anonymous authors. The religious musical compositions included are selected in such a manner as to present to the audience all the eight parts of the Octoich of St. John of Damascus.
It is seldom that new and exhilarating musical experiences emerge from the vast canon of musical expression. Yet, from a historic Balkan culture, with musical roots some 2,000 years old, there has sprung a choral phenomenon like no other. Since the demise of the Soviet Union in 1989, The Bulgarian Women's Choir: Angelite has been mystifying audiences around the world with unique and powerful interpretations of their cen?turies-old folk songs.
A confluence of Russian, Czech and German classical harmony, and of ancient vocal melodies developed and refined dur?ing 500 years of Turkish-Ottoman rule, the music of the choir captures the rich and dif?ficult history of a culture buffeted by the pervasive coercion of invading nations. And yet, the enduring spirit of the Balkan women has been emboldened and preserved in their unique yodeling cries and soul-stirring melodies, some of which allude to the musical rudiments of the pre-Christian Thracian and Classical Greek periods. Even from under four-and-a-half decades of Soviet domination, the clarion purity of this exclusively female art form
has survived and blossomed in a clear and emotive voice.
As their songs continue to express timeless sentiments of the human condition: honor, love, mortality and freedom, the Bulgarian Women's Choir surely represents our "Voices of Life."
Tonight's performance marks the Bulgarian Women's Choir: Angelite's debut appearance under UMS auspices.

String Quartet in D Major, KV 575
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
Incredible as it may seem, there was a time when heads of state played string quartets for entertainment, and turned to the best composers of the day to write music for their personal use. Friedrich Wilhelm II, King of Prussia, followed a distinguished tradition at the magnificent palace in Potsdam. His uncle Frederick the Great had played host to Bach in 1747 and given him the theme of the Musical Offering. Forty-two years later, Mozart visited Potsdam and was received by Friedrich Wilhelm who prided himself on being an accomplished cello player.
Coming from far-away Vienna and a different Empire, Mozart was hardly a household name in Prussia. His arrival was announced in a court document, dated April 26, 1789, in the following terms:
A certain Mozart here (who declared himself upon entry to be a Kapellmeister from Vienna) states that.. .he desires to lay his talents at Your Majesty's feet, and that he awaits Your command, to know whether he may hope that Your Majesty will be graciously pleased to receive him.
The next month, Mozart was received by the King who commissioned six string quartets from him. Mozart completed only three--the present quartet in D Major and those in B-flat (K. 589) and F (K. 590). As might be expected, many prominent melodies are given to the cello in all three works.
The first movement of the D-Major quartet, nevertheless, opens with a singing melody for the first violin, repeated by the viola. The cello gets its first great moment in the second theme. Afterwards, it is a now intimate, now agitated conversation between four equally strong individuals who some?times hear one another out and sometimes
interrupt one another impatiently.
The second-movement "Andante" is an extended instrumental aria whose first phrase is played by the first violin and the second phrase divided among the four instruments. At the repeat, the cello takes the melody of the first violin and the second phrase is replaced by a shorter coda.
The third-movement "Minuetto" com?pletes an eventful musical journey in the space of just a few measures: its simple theme is developed in manifold ways with a brief dramatic episode in the middle. In the "Trio," the cello takes center stage again with a folk-like Idndler melody.
Mozart started the final rondo twice-he crossed out an eight-measure violin theme in the manuscript and wrote a new one for cello, accompanied by the viola. The rather innocent-looking rondo theme is soon subjected to an elaborate contrapuntal treatment, touching on several different keys. A second theme, left in its "natural" state as an eight-measure melody, serves as a complete contrast. The extensive transfor?mations of the theme distinguish this move?ment from most classical rondos. Alfred Einstein, who wrote about Mozart more elo?quently than anyone, called this movement "a triumph of art and the soul."
String Quartet No. 1 (Kreutzer Sonata)
Leos Janacek
Born July 3, 1854 in Hukvaldy, Moravia
(Austrian Empire) Died August 12, 1928 in Moravskd, Ostrava
The literary scholar Harold Bloom has writ?ten at great length about "creative misread-ings," where an artist responds to another artist's work and filters it through his or her own intellectual and emotional personality. Works of art may be perceived very differ?ently from the way originally intended by
the author. Yet even a reading that is not "true" to the original (assuming that we can establish with certainty what that "truth" is) can result in a new work that is true and compelling within its own conceptual framework.
In the realm of music and literature, Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata for violin and piano (1803), Tolstoy's short novel The Kreutzer Sonata (1889) and Janacek 's String Quartet No. 1 (1923) offer unique insights into the ways one work of art may give rise to another through repeated "creative mis-readings." Tolstoy's work is about a jealous husband whose wife performs Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata with a violinist, and he assumes that the two are having an affair. The protagonist Pozdnyshev hears the open?ing "Presto" of the sonata as a wild, destruc?tive force, and in fact the passions aroused in him by the music directly incite him to mur?dering his wife at the novel's end. The better part of the novel is a seething indictment of marriage as an institution; as the husband tells his story on a train, he explains the tragedy of his life in terms of a universally pessimistic life philosophy according to which healthy relationships between men and women are impossible. Janacek, a great lover of Russian literature, was deeply affect?ed by The Kreutzer Sonata (and what reader of the novel wouldn't be). His own mar?riage had been unhappy for years. He was already in his sixties when he met a woman about half his age with whom he soon fell passionately in love. He must have had his own thoughts about the institution of mar?riage. Yet in a letter to his young friend Kamila Stosslova, written shortly after he completed the string quartet, he offered a different interpretation of the novel: "I had in mind a poor woman, maltreated, beaten and murdered, as the Russian writer Tolstoy wrote in his work The Kreutzer Sonata" The interpretation is surprising because Tolstoy presented the story exclusively from the hus-
band's point of view and we never see the wife except through the husband's eyes (in fact, we don't even learn her name). But Janacek, whose operas almost always revolve around great and complex female characters (Jenufa, Katya Kabanova, the Cunning Little Vixen, Elena Makropoulos), may have been less interested in Pozdnyshev than in his wife, and more attracted to the plight of the victim than to the psychology of the mur?derer. What is even more likely, however, is that he sought to capture the deeply disturb?ing, tormented atmosphere of Tolstoy's novel rather than the particulars of the story.
Janacek had been intrigued with The Kreutzer Sonata for a long time before com?posing his quartet. We know that he had earlier intended to write a piano trio after Tolstoy's work; but the trio is lost (if it ever existed). The string quartet--actually the second of his quartets if we count an early student work--may or may not have incor?porated material from the projected trio.
The tense atmosphere is manifest from the very beginning. The first movement opens with a short motto, played very slowly, and repeated several times in alternation with a folk-like melody played in turn by the cello, the first violin, and the second violin. It is followed by a contrasting theme that is melodious yet highly agitated. Out of these building blocks Janacek constructed an enigmatic movement that ends with what seems a musical question mark.
Movement II is a scherzo whose main theme is in polka rhythm; yet the dance character is constantly undermined by men?acing accompaniment figures. There is a second section featuring eerie sul pontkello sounds (played near the bridge of the instruments) and a third one, whose intense emotionality completely erases the memory of the polka-scherzo. This last idea--a singing melody with an increasingly fren?zied accompaniment--eventually takes over the entire movement.
The only allusion to Beethoven's "Kreutzer" Sonata occurs in the third move?ment of Janacek's quartet. The main motif of this movement is almost identical to the second theme in Beethoven's first movement, as Janacek's biographer Jaroslav Vogel point?ed out years ago. The quoted melody--pre?sented in canon between the first violin and the cello--is interrupted by another fast and nervous canon between the second violin and the viola. The emotions finally erupt in a passionate "Vivace" section; at the end, the opening motto of the first movement reappears as a reminder.
The reminder was necessary because the last movement is entirely based on that motto. A mournful song, it contains a great deal of innovative string writing--in partic?ular, a descending scale whose main pitches are reinforced by loud pizzicatos (plucked notes). The music becomes more and more impassioned (Jeroce). At the end of Tolstoy's novel, nothing can relieve the terrible guilt of the man who has killed his wife; likewise, Janacek's quartet concludes without resolving the enormous tensions that have accumulat?ed in the course of its four movements.
Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81
Antonin Dvorak
Born September 8, 1841 in Nelahozeves,
Bohemia Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
Dvorak's German publisher, Fritz Simrock, felt the Czech form of his star composer's first name, "Antonin," did not look good on the title page of a respectable German score. He tried hard to persuade Dvorak to use the German form, "Anton," instead, but the patriotic composer insisted on the two extra letters. They finally struck a compromise by abbreviating the name to a neutral and non?committal "Ant."
In a way, Dvorak's entire life and career
revolved around the issue of Anton vs. Antonin. As a proud Bohemian whose country was part of the Austrian Empire, he always resisted the German culture of the rulers. And yet, the road to recognition led through Simrock and the German-speaking world. Dvorak's historic role as a composer was to continue the German tradition of symphonic and chamber music and to fill the Germanic forms with some genuinely Czech content.
In his greatest works Dvorak found the perfect balance between the nationalist Antonin and the universalist Anton. The Piano Quintet in A Major, for instance, over?flows with beautiful melodies in a Czech folk style, and contains both a dumka and a furiant (see below). At the same time, it is without a doubt the only successor to the great piano quintets of Schumann and Brahms that is worthy of the great models in every respect.
The first movement opens with an unforgettable cello melody. The second theme, introduced by the viola, is equally lyrical. Both themes are eventually devel?oped by the entire group and acquire onsid-eable rhythmic energy in the process. The character of the entire movement still remains predominantly lyrical, though the coda (the concluding section) suddenly strikes a heroic tone.
The second movement is a dumka--a type of melancholy folk song originally from Ukraine that inspired Dvorak in many of his works, most famously in the Dumky piano trio of 1891. The trio contains six dumaka movements, greatly varied in tempo and mood. The dumka of the A-Major quin?tet manages to fit some of the same con?trasting characters into a single movement: the brooding "Andante con moto" of the opening is followed by a second idea in a more fluid tempo. The opening melody is heard again, first in the original tempo and then in the form of a vivace variation. The
first two segments (the brooding opening and the more fluid second idea) return, and the movement ends molto tranquillo (very calmly).
The third movement is titled "Scherzo (Furiant)"--a double inscription reflecting the Antonin-Anton duality. To German ears, this movement fits neatly in the category of the scherzo, familiar since the days of Beethoven. Yet Dvorak's immediate inspira?tion was the Czech folk dance, the furiant, whose classical pedigree was established by Smetana's Bartered Bride. Dvorak's furiant is based on two dance melodies, one energetic and one more tender. The "Trio" (middle section) is in a slower tempo but its theme is derived from the energetic theme heard earlier. The recapitulation of the "Scherzo" is much abbreviated.
The last movement has the inflection of another folk dance, the polka, embedded in a rondo scheme with lyrical episodes and a lively fugato (a section with contrapuntal imitation). The movement has a coda where the motion momentarily slows down only to pick up again and end on an exuberant note.

The Ford Honors Program is made possi?ble by a generous grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund and benefits the UMS Education Program. Each year, UMS
honors a world-renowned artist or ensemble with whom we have maintained a long-standing and significant relationship. In one evening, UMS pays tribute to and presents the artist with the UMS Distinguished Artist Award, and hosts a dinner and party in the artist's honor. Van Cliburn was the first artist so honored, with subsequent honorees being Jessye
Norman, Garrick Ohlsson, The Canadian Brass, and Isaac Stern (left).
This season's Ford Honors Program will be held in early May. The recipient of the 2001
UMS Distinguished Artist Award will be announced in January 2001.

As a UMS corporate sponsor, your organiza?tion comes to the attention of an educated, diverse and growing segment of not only Ann Arbor, but all of southeastern Michigan. You make possible one of our community's cultural treasures, and also receive numerous
benefits from your investment. For example, UMS offers you a range of programs that, depending on your level of support, provide a unique venue for:
Enhancing corporate image
? Cultivating clients
? Developing business-to-business relationships
Targeting messages to specific demographic groups
? Making highly visible links with arts and education programs
? Recognizing employees
Showing appreciation for loyal customers
For more information, please call 734.647.1176.
Internships with UMS provide experience in performing arts administration, mar?keting, publicity, promotion, production and arts education. Semesterand year-long internships are available in many of UMS' departments. For more information, please call 734.764.9187.
Students working for UMS as part of the College Work-Study program gain valu?able experience in all facets of arts manage?ment including concert promotion and marketing, fundraising, event planning and production. If you are a University of Michigan student who receives work-study financial aid and who is interested in working at UMS, please call 734.764.9187.
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 over 300 individuals who volunteer their time to make your concert going experience more pleasant and efficient. The all-volunteer group attends an orientation and training session each fall. Ushers are responsible for working at every UMS performance in a specific hall (Hill, Power Center, or Rackham) for the entire concert season.
If you would like information about becoming a UMS volunteer usher, call the UMS usher hotline at 734.913.9696.
