? 'm delighted to welcome you to this performance presented by the University Musical Society (UMS) of the University of Michigan. Thank fl I 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 1 that our 20002001 season continues our j 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

he 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.
hroughout 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
tanding 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
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. JS)!!IBJjjft 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
'he 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
Hill Auditorium
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 J? 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
"he 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
? otwithstanding 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
'he 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
? riginally 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
'he 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
een 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.

Icerapp 2000
Atli Heimir Sveinsson Born September 21, 1938 in Reykjavik, Iceland
I have written many pieces similar to my piece on tonight's program. The first was written in 1980, before the "rapp" was discovered for Zygmunt Krauze and his ensemble. It was played at the Warsaw Autumn Festival and on the festival of the International Society for Contemporary Music in Brussels.
Originally I called these pieces "rondo fantastico," which is a more accurate descrip?tion of the music itself. The last rap before Icerapp was Eurorapp for youth choir and solo trombone, which was performed last summer in nine European cultural capitals, among them, Reykjavik, Iceland.
My idea was to try to revive the spirit of the divertimento of the eighteenth century-music that does not take itself or the world too seriously, but is there to entertain on an intellectual level--with a layer of humor.
John Cage once said, "take it easy but take it." He also said, "I have nothing to say and I say it." The postmodernists say that no new creation is possible, only the recycling of the old ones. When I have no ideas I can always compose rap. I just start; steal from myself rather than from others. But I imitate others sometimes more or less precisely. This time there are quotations from Stravinsky, the Icelandic national com?poser Jon Leifs, Beethoven, Gershwin and possibly others without me knowing it.
The piece is based on the rhythm of the Icelandic rimur. It is contains the irregular rhythm of 1234-123-1234-12, etc. I invent endless nonsense-melodies on this rhythmic pattern. There is no form, no variation, but hopefully always something new to hear.
As John Cage said, "Happy new ears."
-Atli Heimir Sveinsson
Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in d minor
Aram Khachaturian
Born June 6, 1903 in Tiflis (now Tbilisi,
Republic of Georgia) Died May 1, 1978 in Moscow
When Aram Khachaturian arrived in Moscow from the provinces, he was eigh?teen years old, and had very little musical training to speak of. His parents were not particularly well educated or wealthy, and a musical career for their son was the furthest thing from their minds. But Aram had a brother named Suren, who was fourteen years older than he and had long been active in the Moscow arts world as a stage director. In the summer of 1921, Suren (who used the Russianized surname Khachaturov) came back to Tiflis on the heels of the Red Army which had just established the Soviet Republics of Armenia, Georgia, and Azerbaijan in the Caucasian region. Suren's mission was to recruit talented young peo-pie to take back to Moscow where they '.' would be educated as Soviet artists and intellectuals. One of his recruits was his own little brother. The following year, Aram was admitted to the Gnessin Music School i where he took up the cello (which he touched for the first time at the age of nine?teen) and composition. After seven years of hard work, he was ready to be admitted to the Moscow Conservatory, where he studied with the revered Nikolai Myaskovsky. He ' was over thirty by the time he graduated, rr; but he emerged from school as a composer with a solid technique and a natural gift for melody. Even more importantly, he was imbued with the musical traditions of his native Transcaucasia, where he had grown up in an ethnically mixed environment, ?... exposed to Armenian, Georgian, and Azerbaijani music. Since the nineteenth cen-tury, Russian musicians had been drawn to
the traditions of the East; now, finally, there was a native-born composer who was able to draw on these sources to enrich the palette of Russian music with exotic colors and melodies. That was the idea to which Khachaturian devoted his talents. He became the first Armenian composer to achieve an international reputation, some?thing he always believed wouldn't have been possible without the Soviet system.
The Concerto for Violin was written a few years after Khachaturian established his international reputation with his Piano Concerto. It was inspired by the artistry of David Oistrakh, one of the greatest violinists of the twentieth century. Oistrakh played the first performance of the piece in Moscow in 1940, and the work soon triumphed all over the world.
It is evident from the outset that Khachaturian had the gift of melody, some?thing that can't be taught in school. All three movements of the concerto are posi?tively overflowing with the most ingratiating tunes, some of a distinctly Oriental flavor. At the same time, Khachaturian speaks the idiom of the Romantic virtuoso concerto with the same natural fluency as the nine?teenth-century proponents of the genre. In Khachaturian's extended cadenza for the first movement, the first clarinet interjects a few phrases; Oistrakh later wrote another one that the composer later preferred to his own.
The expressive lyrical theme of the slow movement undergoes considerable develop?ment, with some brilliant passagework and considerable dynamic growth. A mysterious second theme, played by the violas to the pizzicato (plucked) accompaniment of cellos and basses, has reminded an Armenian commentator of two nostalgic Armenian songs. The last movement is a rondo over an irresistible and unforgettable theme in clas?sical style, with episodes in turn songful and virtuosic. The musical pyrotechnics contin?ue to the very end of the work.
Symphony No. 1 in e minor, Op. 39
Jean Sibelius
Born December 8, 1865 in Hameenlinna,
Finland Died September 20,1957 in Jarvenpdd, Finland
Only six years separate Tchaikovsky's last symphony from Sibelius' Symphony No. 1. The Russian master--a modern master in the last years of the nineteenth century-was one of the most important early influ?ences on Sibelius who once confided in a letter to his wife: "There is much in that man that I recognize in myself." Later, how?ever, he declared that the differences between himself and Tchaikovsky were more important than the similarities:
I cannot understand why my symphonies are so often compared with Tchaikovsky's. His symphonies are very human, but they represent the soft part of human nature. Mine are the hard part.
Of course, Sibelius' later symphonies have less and less to do with Tchaikovsky or any other model for that matter. In Symphony No. 1, those links are still fairly apparent, not least in the way the opening melody returns in the last movement. Yet the style of that melody, and of all the other themes in the work, bears the unmistakable stamp of a new symphonic genius, one who was destined to carry the tradition into the twentieth century and steer a unique course between traditionalism and innovation in seven masterpieces written over a period of twenty-five years.
It is hard to say what has made so many people, for the last 100 years, feel that Sibelius' music is redolent of the cold winds and dark skies of the North, yet the impres?sion is definitely hard to shrug off when we listen to this music. The very opening, a slow introduction in which a solitary clar?inet playing a sad tune over a soft tremolo in
the timpani, strikes an austere and forebod'ing note. The "Allegro" theme is passionate " but terse; it grows into a grandiose statement, combined with a second idea that begins more subdued but undergoes its own remarkable transformation. After a wonder-j ful lyrical expansion, the "Allegro" theme . returns triumphantly, and the second theme, now greatly excited, brings about an unex? pected dramatic ending. j
The opening theme of the second-move-; ment "Andante" is simple, yet profound; a ' classical cadential figure, almost a cliche, sounds on two clarinets playing parallel ? sixths as never before. A second, fugal idea fl leads to the movement's first fortissimo pas? sage. Then the music takes a step back, and W the French horns sing a haunting melody J against the Wagnerian "forest murmurs" of the violins. The opening theme returns, much more richly orchestrated; the sad song is gradually transformed into an agitated statement as the tempo is doubled. After the climactic moment, the opening melody returns in its original form.
The "Scherzo" grows out of a brief melodic gesture, like several of Bruckner's scherzos. Interestingly, the elements of m scherzo and dance do not completely allevi-'S ate that unique brooding quality that is so M typical of Sibelius except, perhaps, in the J brief fugal section. The trio, slower in r
tempo, is dominated by horns, clarinets, bassoons and flutes--instruments creating iSj an atmosphere that is, in equal parts, pasa toral idyll and mysterious oracle. A recapitu? lation of the "Scherzo" follows.
The finale is marked "quasi una fantasia" because its form is somewhat unusual: a slow introduction is followed by a stormy M fast section alternating with a sweeping, m hymn-like melody. The suspenseful intro-duction is based on the clarinet melody that opened the first movement. The allegro _ molto takes a dance-like motif and develops it in a most dramatic way. The hymn
melody brings a total contrast. The return?ing allegro is even more agitated and tense than before. Finally, the return of the ; ? hymn--in E Major--brings much-needed v respite at first, but the tonality soon changes back to e minor and with it, the mood dark?ens and more and more dramatic elements appear. The tempo remains stately and dig?nified, which only increases the tension at i the end of this remarkable symphony. i

tli Heimir Sveinsson was born in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1938. At age ten he undertook piano lessons. At the Reykjavik College of Music he studied piano with Rognvaldur Sigurjonsson and received his diploma in 1957. He studied at Staatliche Hochschule fur Musik in Cologne, Germany between 1959-1962.
He studied composition with Giinther , Raphael and Rudolf Petzold, instrumenta?tion with Bernd Alois Zimmermann, con?ducting with Wolfgang von der Nahmer and piano with Hermann Pillney and Hans Otto Schmidt. He also took private lessons ' with Gottfried Michael Koenig. Sveinsson received his diploma in composition and theory in 1963 and shortly after attended summer courses in Darmstadt, making the acquaintance of Oliver Messiaen, Pierre
Boulez, Gyorgi Ligety, and Bruno Maderna. In 1964 he studied with Karl Heinz Stockhausen at Kolner kurse fur neue Musik at Reiniscke Musikhochschule. In 1965 he went to Holland and studied electronic music with Gottfried Michael Koenig in Bilthoven.
Mr. Sveinsson has since lived in Iceland where he founded a class of composition at Reykjavik Collega of Music. Among his stu?dents are Atli Ingolfsson, Haukur Tomasson, Porsteinn Hauksson, Kjartan Olafsson and Helgi Petursson.
Mr. Sveinsson was president of the Icelandic Composers' Association between 1972-83. He organized the festival and ;. general assembly of International Society,; for Contemporary Music in Iceland in 1973. He was also president of the Nordic .--Composers' Council between 1974-76 and organized the Nordic Music Days in Reykjavik in 1976. In 1980, he founded Dark Music Days, a festival for contempo' rary Icelandic music.
Mr. Sveinsson was elected a member of " the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in 1993.
he Iceland Symphony Orchestra, ? ' founded in 1950, is one of the youngest national orchestras in Europe, and its high level of artistry is a remarkable statement by a nation of just 270,000 people. Iceland's literary his?tory dates to its acclaimed medieval Sagas, while the history of the performing arts is unusually short. First attempts to form an orchestra started around 1920 but it was not until 1950 that the Symphony Orchestra was ; established with forty musicians. The .HS" Orchestra has grown slowly but surely over' ' the years, and in 1982 parliamentary legisla?tion gave it the security of federal support Today there are eighty permanent musicians,"v augmented as repertoire requires.
The Iceland Symphony Orchestra's music
directors over the years have greatly influ?enced the orchestra's development, among them Olav Kielland, Jean-Pierre Jacquillat, Petri Sakari, and Osmo Vanska. Since September 1998, American conductor Rico Saccani has filled this post. Guest artists have further enriched the orchestra, most notably Icelandic citizen Vladimir Ashkenazy, as well as conductors Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Rafael Friihbeck de Burgos, Andre Previn, Daniel Barenboim, composer Aram Khatchaturian, and soprano Teresa Bergenza.
The Iceland Symphony Orchestra makes its home in the Haskolabio Concert Hall in Reykjavik where it has a twenty-six-week season. Twice a year tours are made to dif?ferent parts of the island, and tours abroad have been to the Faroe Islands, Germany, Austria, France, Finland, Sweden, Denmark, and, in 1996, to the US. Their Carnegie Hall concert prompted this response from The New York Times: "defied expectations with a sensational Carnegie Hall began noticing the orchestra's fine qualities: smooth, burnished string tone, bright, focused winds and handsome, well-behaved brass, an excellent balance overall."
Regular recordings are made for the National Broadcasting Company, which are broadcast in both Iceland and numerous radio stations abroad. The ISO has recorded works by Grieg, Sibelius (a complete sym?phony cycle), Medotoja, Svendsen and Icelander Jan Liefs, for the Chandos, Bis, and Naxos labels.
Tonight's performance marks the Iceland Symphony Orchestra's UMS debut.

A Note From The Company
amuel Beckett has lived with most of us on this tour for many years. David Kelly was the first actor to play Krapp in Ireland when he was a very old youn man in 1959. He also played a memorable Vladimir at Stratford East in London. Johnny Murphy has played in more Beckett productions than any of us. Apart from playing the reader in Ohio Impromptu, he is the quintessential Estragon and I am the eighth (or is it ninth) Vladimir he has played with. Alan Stanford and Stephen Brennan have strong Beckett pedigrees, there being a Krapp, Man in Play, Hamm in Endgame, Speaker in A Piece of Monologue ; and 'C in Rough for Theatre II between ; them. (Work it out for yourselves as to who played what!) Dan Colley is now an old hand at playing the boy. And I've been in a few productions myself too.
Touring with Godot has taken us to a variety of places from Seville in Spain for Expo '92 (where theatre is usually of a more bloody kind: in the round with swords and bulls) to the Melbourne Festival in Australia in 1997. We've also played towns in Ireland like Tralee and Kilkenny as well as big cities like London, Chicago and New York. Each time the experience varies. Playing Beckett to audiences who don't have a great sense of irony can be tricky. In Charleston, South Carolina, when I was playing my one-man show I'll Go On at the Spoleto Festival, one very old man left at the interval saying in a deep southern drawl, "He keeps talkin' about dayith the whole tahm!"
In the global village we now inhabit,
where television pumps an anodyne of" Western culture into most living rooms, : we're more aware ol cultural differences.
Dublin humor tends to be sardonic l with a lot of irony. So in New York there isfe no problem. In the global village we now ?_ inhabit, where television pumps an anodyne of Western culture into most living rooms, we're more aware of cultural differences.
Perhaps the most intrusive phenome-jsjjjj non of modern living is the ubiquitous 'Wt? mobile phone. Though audiences are nowjpi asked to switch these off, there are always $ftj one or two people who don't. It was in ourS;, home city of Dublin that one such phone ,'g rang during a performance of Waiting for aj,,. Godot. It was during a long pause and I was ' '" sorely tempted to turn to Johnny Murphy and say "It's Godot!" Y""" "
Maybe it was. '3

Louis le Brocquy (Designer, Waiting for : Godot) is Ireland's most distinguished living artist. Born in Dublin in 1916, he left Ireland and his grandfather's business in 1938 to become a painter. Self-taught, he studied in museums in London, Paris, Venice and Geneva, then exhibiting the Prado collection during the Spanish Civil War. In 1946 he began his long association with Gimpel Fils and settled in London, where he became a prominent member of a disparate group of painters that included Nicholson, Pasmore, Scott, Heron, Freud and Bacon. During this period he began to exhibit internationally, winning a major prize at the Venice Biennale in 1956. In 1958 he married the young Irish painter Anne Madden and left London to work with her in the relative isolation of the French Midi. Following his discovery in 1964 of decorated Polynesian ancestral skulls in the Paris Musie de L'Homme, le Brocquy set
out upon his long series of head images. Initially anonymous, these images later depicted specific artists such as Yeats, Joyce and Beckett. It was at the latter's request that le Brocquy illustrated his valedictory book, Stirrings Still, and designed the set and cos?tumes for Waiting for Godot.
Retrospective exhibitions of the artist's work have been held in museums in the US, France, Belgium, Japan, Australia and Ireland, and he is represented in numerous public collections including Foundation Maeght, St. Paul; Guggenheim Museum, New York; Hirshhorn Museum & Sculpture Garden, Washington DC; Irish Museum of Modern Art, Dublin; Kunsthaus, Zurich; Musee d'Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris; Musee Picasso, Antibes and the Tate Gallery, London.

David Kelly
A late evening in the future. Krapp's den.
Krapp's Last Tape was premiered at the Royal Court (London) on October 28, 1958.
avid Kelly (Krapp) has an associa?tion with the Gate Theatre that spans over forty years. He played regularly with Longford Players and Edwards-MacLiammoir and was on stage with MacLiammoir for his final performance. In 1980, with Lady Longford, he briefly re-established Longford Productions for just two seasons of Chekhov and Pinter. His recent Gate performances include Tartuffe, The Seagull and The Sunshine Boys. Having created the role of Krapp in the Irish premiere of Krapp's Last Tape in 1959, he re-created it for the Gate's Beckett Festival in Dublin in 1991, going on to play it in Chicago, Seville, and at the Gate's Beckett Festival at Lincoln Center, New York, in 1996. Mr. Kelly has appeared throughout the US, earning the Freedom of the City of Buffalo, and a 1990 nomination in Washington, DC for the Helen Hayes Award. In 1997, Mr. Kelly again played Krapp's Last Tape to great acclaim in Australia at the Melbourne Festival.
Much of Mr. Kelly's past few years have been spent in front of the film camera, including Ordinary Decent Criminal with Kevin Spacey and starring opposite Helen Mirren in Joel Hershman's Greenfingers. He was the star of the award-laden Waking Ned Devine, winning Hollywood's Golden Satellite Award for Best Actor 1998. He also won a nomination with Robert Duvall and James Coburn for Best Actor at the Screen Actors Guild Awards in Hollywood, at which ceremony he also received an award for outstanding performance. He has just finished filming Rough for Theatre I with Milo O'Shea for the Beckett Film Project.
This afternoon's performances mark David Kelly's UMS debut.
Pat Laffan (Director, Krapp's Last Tape) was a resident director of the Gate in the early 1980s. His stage performances there include The Seagull. He performed in many plays at the Abbey Theatre while he was a member of that company in the 1960s and 1970s. From the mid-seventies on, he also began work as a director, putting his stamp on productions at the Abbey, the Peacock and the Gate. Stage appearances include The Well of the Saints at the Abbey, The Silver Tassie at the Almeida Theatre, London and as 'The Bull McCabe' in The Field at the Gaiety Theatre, Dublin. Film credits include The Snapper, Braveheart, An Awfully Big Adventure, Spacetruckers, Trojan Eddie, The Closer You Get and Country, yet to be released.

Most recently, he designed the lighting for Bernard Shaw's Arms and the Man, Shakespeare's As You Like It, John Mortimer's adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, Bernard Farrell's latest play The Spirit of Annie Ross and the hugely successful ' Go On, adapted from Samuel Beckett's trilogy Molloy, Malone Dies and The Unnamable. Outside the Gate he designed the lighting for Riverdance -The Show which opened at the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway last March and Riverdance The Homecoming which opened in Dublin's Point Theatre in July. He also designed the lighting for the Irish Pavilion at Expo 2000 Hannover. His next major lighting project will be to design the lighting for all the productions at this year's Wexford Festival Opera.
Rupert was Festival Director of the St. Patrick's Festival from 1995-1999.

. he Gate Theatre was founded in 1928 by Hilton Edwards and Micheal MacLiammoir and is unique in the fact that in the inter?vening seventy years it has had only two artistic directorates, the founders and the current director Michael Colgan. It was at the Gate that Dublin audiences were introduced to international theatre--to the work of Ibsen, Chekhov, O'Neill and Zola-and that the first ever English-speaking pro?duction of Wilde's Salome was seen. It was here, too, that Orson Welles and James Mason began their prodigious acting careers and the Gate became established as the home of European and experimental drama.
In December 1983 Michael Colgan became director of the Gate Theatre. Since then, the Gate has continued to flourish, y combining high-quality productions with groundbreaking theatrical events. The the?atre's international reputation is better than ever before, enhanced by the Gate's world?wide tours. In August 1996, The Beckett Festival met with international acclaim ?'' when the Gate toured to the inaugural Lincoln Center Festival. Previously that same year, the Gate's Molly Sweeney enjoyed . an extensive run, also in New York. In 1997, selected Beckett plays toured to the Melbourne Festival of the Arts, while in 1998 ' Go On and Waiting for Godot visit?ed the World Stage Festival in Toronto. Later the same year Lady Windermere's Fan toured to the Spoleto Festival, Charleston. Uncle Vanya and Aristocrats toured to the Lincoln Center Festival, New York in July 1999, and in September 1999, the Gate presented The Beckett Festival at the Barbican Centre in London.
ichael Colgan is the Artistic Director of the Gate Theatre, Dublin. He was born in 1950 in Dublin and was educated at Trinity College where as a stu?dent he became chairman of Trinity Players. From 1983 until the present he has been the Artistic Director of the Gate Theatre and before then he was a director of the Abbey Theatre, manager of the Irish Theatre Company and Artistic Director of the Dublin Theatre Festival. He has produced many award-winning productions at the Gate which have toured to over twenty countries. He has produced two Pinter Festivals and three Beckett Festivals.
The first Beckett Festival was produced at the Gate in 1991, in which the Theatre presented all nineteen of Samuel Beckett's stage plays in Dublin over a three-week period. This Festival was presented again at Lincoln Center, New York in 1996 and at the Barbican Centre, London in 1999. These Beckett productions have also been seen in many other cities throughout the world, notably in Chicago, Toronto and at the Melbourne Festival where the productions won the prestigious Critics Award.
Mr. Colgan was co-founder and execu?tive director of Little Bird Productions, a film and television company based in Dublin and London. In 1986 he produced the RTfi television series Two Lives and in 1998 co-founded Belacqua Films which will be producing the feature film Mary Mary in the spring of 2001. In 1999 he formed Blue Angel Films specifically to produce the Beckett Film Project in which all nineteen of Beckett's plays are being filmed using inter?nationally renowned directors and actors. Mr. Colgan is a Board Member of the Gate Theatre, the Dublin Theatre Festival, Millennium Festivals Ltd., the Laura Pels Foundation (New York) and the Governing Authority of Dublin City University. From 1989-94 he was a member of the Irish Arts
Council and he was Chairman of the St. Patrick's Festival from 1996-99. In 1996 he received the Eamonn Andrews Award for excellence in the National Entertainment Awards and in 1999 he won the People of the Year Award. In 1985 and 1987 he was a recipient of Sunday Independent Arts Award. In July 2000, he received the degree of Doctor in Laws honoris causa from Trinity College, Dublin.
This weekend's performances mark The Gate Theatre's debut appearances under UMS aus?pices.

ften dubbed Cuba's own Edith Piaf, Omara Portuondo has been thrilling audiences in the cabarets and nightspots of Havana with the passionate and moving honesty of her voice.
Born in Havana in 1930, Omara began : her career as a singer and dancer at the Tropicana Revue. To this day, Omara remains a flamboyant fixture of this now famous nightclub. -1
In 1952, Omara and her sister Haydee formed a female vocal quartet with Elena Burke and Moraima Secada that was led by the pianist Aida Deistro. They were to
become one of the most impor?tant groups in Cuban musical history and Omara was to remain with the Quarteto Las D'Aida for fif?teen years. "We toured America and Aida's vocal arrangements
were very innovative. We were acclaimed everywhere and when Nat King Cole played : the Tropicana we sang on stage with him," Omara recalls. Two years later, she was with Las D'Aida singing in a Miami hotel when the Cuban missile crisis caused the rupture in relations with America and began Cuba's long period of isolation. Omara returned to Cuba while her sister Haydee stayed in America. Omara stayed with Las D'Aida :
until 1967 when she left to pursue her solo career, singing bittersweet boleros and "feel-in," a vocal style influenced by American jazz. She has since become one of the world's great divas who is only now emerg?ing from Cuba's long isolation to achieve the international acclaim she so richly deserves. Nearly thirty years later, Ry Cooder first came across Omara in 1995 when he was in Cuba recording with the Chieftains. The fol?lowing year when the American guitarist returned to Havana with World Circuit's Nick Gold for the Buena Vista sessions, Omara was by coincidence in the Egrem studios at the same time. Cooder immedi-
ately invited her to sing the bolero "Veinte Anos" with " Compay Segundo, and it became one of the highlights of the album.
Omara went on
to become part of the legendary Buena Vista performances in Amsterdam and at New York's Carnegie Hall and has toured exten-aL sively as a special guest on the Buena Vista tour featuring Orquesta Ibrahim Ferrer and Ruben Gonzalez y su Grupo. She also appeared on Ibrahim Ferrer's self titled debut album. Now following in the foot?steps of her Buena Vista alumni, Ibrahim Ferrer and Ruben Gonzalez, World Circuit gp has released the third solo album of the BVSC series--"Buena Vista Social Club pre?sents. . .Omara Portuondo" which finally -2 places her expressive voice center stage Jpj where it belongs. JIP
Tonight's performance marks O'mafa Portuondo's second appearance under UMS ? auspices. Ms. Portuondo was a featured sonero in 1999's UMS presentation of Orquesta Ibrahim Ferrer & Ruben Gonzalez y su Grupo.
'... Omara Portuondo, the only woman in the
'Club' more than makes up for the gender gap.'
--People's Weekly World
---arbarito Torres is widely regarded
as one of Cuba's greatest lute players. He has remained true to the musical folklore of his native region, the genre known as musi-ca guajira, or the "blues" of the Cuban countryside. He expresses a modern sophis?ticated, but authentically traditional style,
more likely to be found in a rural hamlet deep in his beloved countryside, than in urban Havana, where he now resides. His musical expression continues to be the gutsy, heartfelt outcry of his true origin and upbringing, since he remains after all a true guajiro, or countryman.
He was born Barbara Alberto Torres Delgado in Matanzas, Cuba. At ten he was capable of "picking" the lute with extreme proficiency, and began accompanying his father. In 1970, he started his professional career with Serenata Yumurina, a group led by Higinio Mullens. Torres traveled all over Cuba performing with Siembra Cultural-later renamed Grupo Yarabi--until he wise?ly decided to settle in Havana.
He became a permanent member of the Orquesta Cubana de Cuerdas and was also featured in the recordings of the most rec?ognizable names in popular Cuban music, such as Elio Reve, Grupo Sierra Maestra and "Albita," who now resides in the States.
Finally, he joined the legendary queen of the musica guajira Celina Gonzalez and her Grupo Campoalegre as their musical director. Concurrently, he was featured with Grupo Manguare. He recorded and toured extensively with both groups visiting Latin America and Europe. In 1992, Torres found?ed his own group--Piquete Cubano--but he continued to accompany the great Celina until 1995, when they finally went their sep?arate ways. In addition, Torres was promif" nently featured in the recordings of Afro Cuban All Stars, and the 1998 Grammy win?ning Buena Vista Social Club album.
Tonight's performance marks Barbarito Torres' UMS debut.

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

ithout 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.
