LETTER FROM THE PRESIDENT
? '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 I 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 734.647.117'4, drop me a note, or send me an e-mail message at email@example.com.
Kenneth C. Fischer, President
n 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.

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 igBr 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.
L UMS CHORAL UN 10;
f 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call 734.763.8997.
Hill Auditorium j______
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.
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
'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
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. ,
'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.
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 s -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 Cosifan 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.

Coriolan Overture, Op. 62 :_..
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Of all the heroes Beethoven ever wrote music about, Coriolanus is the most deeply flawed personality. Prometheus, Leonore and Egmont all represent the highest ideals of courage, selflessness and love of freedom. The hero of Symphony No. 3 is either an ide?alized Bonaparte, the exalted leading spirit of the French Revolution, or an unnamed Great Man of perfect character. It seems that Beethoven was not interested in portraying heroism gone awry, or in dealing with the often-tragic dilemmas inherent in securing or maintaining power. The day Bonaparte had himself crowned Emperor, he could no longer be the protagonist of the "Eroica."
Coriolanus is an exception. This enig?matic Roman general, who lived, tradition has it, in the fifth century B.C., was at once ? a hero and a villain, a triumphant warlord . and a vile traitor. His life is known from ?. Plutarch's Lives of the Noble Grecians and Romans, the source used by Shakespeare for his tragedy Coriolanus. Beethoven's overture; however, was not written for Shakespeare's tragedy; instead, its immediate inspiration was a contemporary Viennese adaptation by Heinrich Joseph von Collin, a poet and sec?retary at the Imperial Court. It was, howev?er, not performed with that play, except on one occasion, to which we shall return in a moment. It was more a reaction to Collin's work rather than an introduction to it.
Collin's tragedy was first performed at the court theatre in 1802, five years before Beethoven composed the overture. The 331; music at that time had been arranged from Mozart's Idomeneo by Abbe Stadler, a color?ful personality in Viennese musical life at the time. The title role was played with great success by Joseph Lange, who was a brother-in-law of Mozart.
The story of Coriolanus concerns the son of a prominent Roman family, Gaius Marcius, who led the Roman army in a vic?torious battle against the Volscians and cap?tured their city of Corioli (hence his hon?orary name, Coriolanus). Upon his return to Rome, he became embroiled in domestic disputes and alienated both the population and the senate to such a degree that he was sent into exile. Angry and revengeful, he went to the Volscians, swore allegiance to them and led them against Rome. His implacable wrath was calmed only when his mother and his wife came to plead with him before the walls of Rome. He finally with?drew his forces. In Plutarch's and Shakespeare's versions, Coriolanus was slain by the disappointed Volscians; in Collin's drama, however, he committed suicide.
In his biography of Beethoven, first published in 1912 but still remarkably fresh and informative, Paul Bekker made an inter?esting comparison between Shakespeare's and Collin's versions of Coriolanus. 'fg "Collin's...drama is not an adaptation of Shakespeare's drama, but an independent rendering of Plutarch's story." And we learn from another source that the court secretary had never read Shakespeare's tragedy. Bekker continued his analysis: HH
... -,. Shakespeare presents the tragedy of a SK towering personality who "drank hatred
of mankind out of the fullness of
love."...Collin lacks the wide outlook,
the penetrating imagery of Shakespeare.
Painstaking, rhetorical pathos is his medium of expression, and his drama ,' is no human or personal tragedy but a
philosophical debate....Coriolanus him-self is a passive, reflective personality. His
greatness is not exemplified in the action;
it is mutely postulated, and he always acts
according to his convictions.
udwig van Beethoven was born
in the provincial court city of Bonn, Germany, on December 16, 1770. His grandfather, also Ludwig, and his father, Johann, were both musicians in the service of, successively, the prince elec?tors Max Friedrich and Max Franz. Beethoven's own talent was such that at the age of twelve he was already an assistant to the organist Christian Gottlob Neefe, with whom he studied. However, attempts to establish him as a prodigy in the mold of Mozart had little success.
In 1787 Beethoven was sent to Vienna, but his mother fell ill, and he had to return to Bonn almost immediately. She died a few months later, and in 1789 Beethoven was left responsible for his younger brothers Caspar Carl and Nikolaus Johann. Beethoven left Bonn for Vienna a second time in November 1792, in order to study with Franz Joseph Haydn.
In 1794, French forces occupied the Rhineland; consequently, Beethoven's ties with and support from the Bonn court came to an end. His father had died a month after his departure from Bonn, and in 1794 and 1795 his two brothers joined him in Vienna. He remained there the rest of his life, leaving only for long summer holidays in the surrounding countryside and, in his early years, for occasional concerts in nearby cities.
The last thirty years of Beethoven's life were shaped by a series of personal crises, the first of which was the onset of deafness. The early symptoms, already noticeable to the com?poser before 1800, affected him socially more than musically. His reactions--despair, resigna?tion, and defiance--were conveyed in letters to two friends in 1801 and in a document--half letter and half will--addressed to his brothers in late 1802, now known as the "Heiligenstadt testament." Resolving finally to "seize fate by the throat," he emerged from the crisis with a series of triumphant works that marked the beginning of a new period in his stylistic devel?opment.
A second crisis a decade later was the end of a relationship with an unnamed lady known

to us as the "Immortal Beloved," as Beethoven addressed her in a series of letters in July 1812. This was apparently the most serious of several such relationships with women who were in some way out of his reach, and its traumatic conclusion was followed by a lengthy period of resignation and reduced musical activity.
During this time Beethoven's deafness advanced to the stage that he could no longer" perform publicly, and he required a slate or little notebooks (now known as "conversation books") to communicate with visitors. The death of his brother Caspar Carl in 1815 led to a five-year legal struggle for custody of Caspar's son Karl, then nine-years old, in whom Beethoven saw a last chance for the domestic life that had otherwise eluded him. Shortly thereafter, Beethoven's health began to fail, and he diedjT on March 26, 1827 in Vienna.
Beethoven, for his part, did know both Plutarch and Shakespeare, and this knowl?edge certainly colored his approach to the figure of Coriolanus. His Coriolanus is cer?tainly not a rhetorical figure but a highly dramatic one. This circumstance has led M several commentators, including Richards Wagner, to believe that the music was "? directly related to Shakespeare; others asserted--and they may be right--that after all, the overture has more to do with Shakespeare than with Collin, regardless of the surface story of the work's genesis.
The key of the overture, c minor, is the one in which some of Beethoven's most dra?matic works, such as the "Pathetique" piano sonata and Symphony No. 5, were written. The startling dissonance and sudden general rests that open the overture are unique even by Beethovenian standards. Strong sforzatos (offbeat accents), syncopations, and the fre?quent use of the dissonant diminished-sev?enth chord create a high level of dramatic tension from beginning to end, except for the two occurrences of a lyrical second sub?ject that probably represented the women pleading with Coriolanus before the gates of Rome. The work follows the principles of sonata form (exposition, development, and recapitulation), with an extended coda, at the end of which the first notes of the open?ing theme are repeated a number of times, ever softer and in longer and longer note values. This gradual "dying away" of the music unmistakably represents the death of Coriolanus, and ensures that the ending of the overture is every bit as extraordinary as its opening.
$ Beethoven considered his Coriolan Overture an important piece. For one thing, he had long needed a new overture to replace the Creatures of Prometheus as a con?cert opener. In addition, he was fascinated by the special dramatic problems raised by the overture as a genre. He grappled with some of these problems in the three:,
"Leonore" overtures, of which the last (now known as No. 1) was written in 1807, the same year as Coriolanus. Most importantly, however, he hoped that Coriolanus would be helpful in securing for him Collin's collabo?ration on a new opera for the Imperial the?atres. His Fidelio, given there in its early ver?sions of 1805 and 1806 (under the title Leonore) without much success, left him with the desire to try his luck again as an opera composer. In 1807, negotiations, in fact, seem to have been under way for a new operatic contract for Beethoven. One of the composer's most generous patrons, Prince Lobkowitz, who was also a member of the court theatre's governing board, arranged a single performance of Collin's tragedy with Beethoven's overture in April 1807, perhaps with the intention of helping his cause. But there was no follow-up. Beethoven's further operatic plans came to nothing, and it was not until 1814 that his Fidelio, in a revised form, would see the stage again. His only stage project involving the Court Theatre during the intervening years was the inci?dental music to Goethe's Egmont, performed in June 1810.
Symphony No. 8 in F Major, Op. 93
Symphony No. 8 is perhaps the most misun?derstood of Beethoven's symphonies. Often overshadowed by its more monumental companion piece, Symphony No. 7, it has been regarded by most commentators as a lesser work. Many authors of the past, real?izing that Beethoven tended to write his symphonies in groups of two coming in close succession (nos. 3-4, 5-6, 7-8), have theorized about the differences between Beethoven's "odd and even-numbered" sym?phonies, implying that nos. 3, 5, 7, and 9 grapple with "universal" issues and prob?lems of the whole of humanity, while the
even-numbered works represent "temporary rests" during which the artist "enjoys his art 'for its own sake."' The quotes are from the 1927 book Beethoven--His Spiritual Development by J.W.N. Sullivan, who alsoS maintained that the even-numbered sym-S phonies "are not in the main line of -W Beethoven's spiritual development." ? jjgf. In reality, the even-numbered sym?phonies are every bit as important as the odd-numbered ones, and are just as repre?sentative of Beethoven's personality. Lyrical -rather than heroic, serene rather than tragic, ? they are nonetheless full of the same energy that animates the "revolutionary" works.
Symphony No. 8 is usually known for its humorous touches as well as its style, closer to Haydn and Mozart than anything Beethoven had written since his youth. True, some of the surprise effects he uses are : clearly intended as comical, and the allu's sions to the music of his predecessors are ] numerous. Still, the humorous aspect is only 'A one of many in the work, and it is clear that ; the symphony could not have been written . twenty years earlier.
Take the first movement, "Allegro vivace ; e con brio." It starts with a jocular theme whose beginning is played forte by the full orchestra, the middle piano by the winds, '? and the end forte by everyone again. The melody itself could perhaps be characterized : as light, but the vehemence it receives from the orchestration (note especially the brass ? and timpani!) makes it sound a lot more __ serious. In the course of the whole move-S ment, we hear a great deal of rhythmic ener-; gy, sudden pauses, tonal shifts and mood :: changes. In the development section, the "., music becomes highly dramatic, even vio] lent, for a few seconds before the recapitula?tion begins in a triple-orfe, with the theme : in the bass. These moments are anything but light and humorous; the same is true of : most of the lengthy coda (a kind of musical ' epilogue), where the theme becomes myste'
rious and full of suspense, before bursting out in a new double-orfe explosion. It ma all be a joke, but it is certainly a giant jok?ing. .
Beethoven first wrote this coda much ? shorter than it is in the final version. He later ' brought back the humor to the ending of the movement by adding a new fanfare vets sion of the theme that suddenly fades intol pianissimo as the first notes of the melody appear again as a soft-spoken farewelLjg
According to the well-known story, the l second-movement "Allegretto scherzando" was inspired by the ticking of the metronome, newly invented by Beethoven's friend ;es Johann Nepomuk Malzel. Beethoven used "" the same melody in a canon written in 1812 on the words "Ta ta ta ta...lieber, lieber Malzel" The charming and witty little piece is not the first instance Beethoven replaced the slow movement with a quasi-scherzo; jk-;-earlier examples include the String Quartet ' in c-minor (Op. 18, No. 4) and the Piano i Sonata in E-flat Major (Op. 31, No. 3). Scherzos normally take the place of minuets of earlier times; yet in these cases, as in Symphony No. 8, both the scherzo and the.?? ' minuet were retained. Symphony No. 8 is ? the only Beethoven symphony to have this f-particularity. Btw
The third movement, "Tempo di " "" Minuetto," looks back on the minuets of old from a certain distance and with noticeable nostalgia. Its greatest moments include the pianissimo recapitulation of the first theme on the solo bassoon, and the triumphant fortissimo closing figure on the horns and trumpets. The Trio, or middle section, is a dialog between the pair of horns and the first clarinet over the lively accompaniment of the cellos. It is interesting that the violins and violas are silent throughout the Trio except for one short phrase.
The finale, "Allegro vivace," is the most grandiose of the symphony's movements. It starts in a whisper on high-pitched instru-
merits only, but the whole orchestra soon enters in a thundering fortissimo on C-sharp, a note foreign to the key of F Major. ' The bustling orchestral activity continues until it is suddenly interrupted by a lyrical ' second theme that also starts with a "wrong" note in the "wrong" key (that is, one not consistent with the rules) of A-flat Major. The key soon changes, however, reaching the proper C Major. The development section takes us to many new keys and introduces the main melody in many new guises, including a famous spot called by musicologists the "false recapitulation." We hear the main theme played by the entire orchestra fortissi?mo; what we don't realize (unless we have perfect pitch) is that the theme is, once again, not in the key where it should be. We find out, though, when Beethoven interrupts the theme with soft, repeated octave leaps on the note 'E.' Then, he simply moves up a half-step to 'F,' a pitch intoned, in repeated octave leaps, by the first bassoon and the timpani. At this point we know that this is the home key, and now the real recapitulation begins.
The Symphony ends with one of Beethoven's longest codas; it is even more extended than that of the first movement, and, indeed, takes up almost half of the entire finale. It includes a new subject, a return of the main theme, and repeated emphasis on the off-key C-sharp we heard at the beginning of the movement. In the last minute, when listeners might assume that the journey has reached its end (and the only thing remaining being to confirm the home key), this 'C-sharp' becomes the springboard for a whole passage in the very distant key of f-sharp minor, out of which Beethoven extricates himself with a real master's stroke. After a return of the lyrical second theme, and yet another variant of the first one, there is a seemingly unending succession of F-Major chords, high and low, soft and loud. The ultimate joke of the sym?phony is that we can never be sure when it will be over.
Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in D Major, Op. 61
Two years after moving from Bonn to Vienna, the twenty-four-year-old Beethoven met a violin prodigy ten years his junior named Franz Clement. The boy had already toured much of Europe, performed in ; London under Haydn, and earned the admi-ration of many important musicians on the , continent. He carried with him an album i! that was signed by many of the aristocrats, musicians, and officials he had come in con-tact with during his travels. Beethoven, a Jj former child prodigy himself, made this Jt entry in Clement's album:. . ... .-.., :.2
s&3j Dear Clement,
Proceed along the path which you have hitherto trodden so splendidly and so glo-i riously. Nature and art vie in making you i one of the greatest artists. Follow both, .g ' and you need not fear that you will fail to ;? reach the great--the greatest goal on _ earth to which the artist can attain. Be .gg [? happy, my dear young friend, and come -:'r back soon, so that I may hear again your delightful, splendid playing.
L. v. Beethoven (in the service of ' ''? His Excellency the Elector of Cologne) o
Clement later went on to become the"5 conductor of the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. His musical memory was legendary and gave rise to many fantastic stories. ... (According to one of them, he once pre?pared a piano score of Haydn's Creation ; after hearing it performed several times, ' with only a libretto, no full score, to help j him.) He was always a great champion of Jr Beethoven's music: he was involved in the I production of the original Fidelio in the autumn of 1805 and was the concertmaster
at the first public performance of Symphony No. 3 in the same year. ;___ _ _
It seems, then, that Clement was not as unworthy of Beethoven's Violin Concerto as some have later thought. He may not have been above such stunts as playing pieces "reversed violin" (the instrument held upside down)--something he did the very same night he premiered the Beethoven. Yet by all accounts he was an excellent artist, widely praised for the gracefulness and ten?derness of his playing as well as for his extraordinary technical skills. Although his fame was eventually to decline and he was to die in poverty in 1842, in 1806 he must have been at the height of his powers.
One wonders what this not insignifi?cant artist thought when he first saw the manuscript of Beethoven's Violin Concerto with the punning inscription "Concerto par Clemenza pour Clement primo Violino e direttore al theatro a Vienna." Was it really on the day of the first performance As best as we can know 180 years later, the work was not finished until the last possible moment and Clement sight-read it at the concert (which, by the way, also included a performance of the "Eroica" Symphony led by Beethoven). We will never know how the concerto sounded under the circumstances, and that may even be a good thing. The critics, at any rate, gave mixed reviews. As one of them wrote:
The judgment of connoisseurs is unani?mous; the many beauties of the piece must be conceded, but it must also be admitted that the continuity is often completely broken and that the endless repetitions of certain commonplace passages might easily become tedious to the listener....It is to be feared that if Beethoven continues upon this path he and the public will fare badly.
One thing that may have helped ' Clement find his way through the new work "i is that at least certain passages must have . been somewhat familiar. Clement (himself a composer) had written his own violin con?certo (also in D Major), which was pre.,. -,.;. miered about a year-and-a-half before the ?'. ,'.$ Beethoven. In a new (1998) monograph on )t the Beethoven Violin Concerto (Cambridge ;= Music Handbook), Robin Stowell has exam?ined this entirely forgotten work and found ;? that some of the passagework in the vliSf&
Beethoven Concerto is closely modeled on 'i Clement's piece. This shows that Beethoven ;
friend's playing style, using some of , ''?51
Clement's favorite playing techniques, and ra5 showing him in the process how much more could be gotten out of those techniques. ;??}
The new concerto went unappreciated p for a long time, despite the fact that the J comnoser anrl nianist Muzin Clpmpnti nerKftfci
suaded Beethoven to arrange it as a piano iidSf concerto, which Beethoven did. Although '$jgj the concerto is too violinistic to work well $$. on the piano, Clementi would hardly have 'j?S proposed such an arrangement if it had not ;f J? made some business sense to him. But there ..ikN were apparently no performances of the v0? piano version during Beethoven's lifetime, !'Jz& and only a few not very successful ones of ., 4$$. the original. The longest and probably the 5jjj$!f$i& most difficult violin concerto written to .$$Vj&fe date, it was awaiting the exceptional artist ;j&$&pi who could uncover all its beauties. jp"iyv!
It was the thirteen-year-old Joseph '
Joachim who finally brought the work to :
triumph at a concert given in London under , Mendelssohn (1844). Since then, the world has never tired of the composition, which soon became known as the "Queen of Violin
Clement's violin concerto was by no ' ] means Beethoven's only model in his Violin
Concerto. It has long been known that ;
Beethoven was strongly influenced by the
composers of the French violin school. ? This school, founded by the Italian-born: Giovanni Battista Viotti (1755-1824), was "" continued by virtuosos such as Rodolphe i Kreutzer (1766-1831) and Pierre Rode "] (1774-1830). These violinist-composers 1 were the first to establish the violin concerto,; as a major concert genre, on par with sym; phonies. Their brilliant and dignified works ! abound in attractive melodies and often -j contain march-like themes that sometimes '?? give them a downright military character.
All of these features greatly impressed..-X
Beethoven, who was a great admirer of t__
French music in general. His opera Fidelio .; was based on French models; he regarded .; Luigi Cherubini, Italian-born like Viotti but;; a master of French opera, as the greatest '; composer of his time. And he was personal-: ly acquainted with Kreutzer and Rode; he ? dedicated his Violin Sonata, Op. 47 to the former, and wrote the Sonata, Op. 96 for the latter.
What exactly is the relationship between Beethoven's Violin Concerto and the. concertos of the French school It has been : suggested that even the five timpani strokes that open the work are a reflection of the French "military" concerto style. But the : movement that follows is anything but ;]_ march-like: it is one of Beethoven's most lyrical allegros.
The large scope and the melodic rich?ness of the French works, however, did inspire Beethoven. In addition, as violinist-musicologist Boris Schwarz showed in a 1958 article, Beethoven closely followed the works of Viotti and Kreutzer in the elabora?tion of the solo violin part. Some passages that don't originate with Clement have close parallels in the French composers' works. The borrowings or near-borrowings occur mostly, if not exclusively, in sections with virtuoso passagework, an area where the pianist Beethoven evidently did not have the practical experience the violinist
In the end, though, Beethoven's concer?to is a masterpiece sui generis: the borrowed details were inserted into a completely new context. The unique Olympian serenity the work radiates is all Beethoven, as are the dramatic outbursts that temporarily cloud the happy atmosphere. -
On the whole, the Violin Concerto is' ' v one of the happiest works Beethoven ever wrote. The first, dream-like entry of the solo violin, evolving into a mini-cadenza after the orchestral exposition, is a case in point. So is the beautiful second theme, pre?sented both in the major and in the minor modes. This theme seems to be reserved entirely for the orchestra, and the solo violin never gets to play it in full until the very end, after the cadenza. Then, at last, the soloist makes the most of this delightful melody and takes it from the lowest register of the instrument to the highest. The simple and song-like style of performance is gradu?ally altered by the addition of virtuoso scales and passages, and the volume rises to a powerful fortissimo to close the movement.
The second-movement, "Larghetto," is in G Major and never leaves its home tonality, a quite unusual circumstance that explains the exceptional restfulness that pervades the movement. It is a set of free variations on a quiet, meditative theme. At the end, there is a bridge leading into the third-movement, "Rondo," without a pause.
According to the early twentieth-centu?ry musicologist Arnold Schering, there was an old Viennese tradition that ascribed the first theme of the "Rondo" to Franz Clement. Whether or not that is true, the melody provides a splendid starting point for a light-hearted and vivacious movement, whose cheerful dance rhythms (in 68 time) continue a time-honored classical Rondo tradition while introducing many individual touches in the elaboration of the model. The central episode in g minor, in which
the solo violin engages in a dialogue with the solo bassoon, is especially haunting. The ending of the movement is a typical Beethovenian joke: a pianissimo recapitula?tion of the theme is interrupted by two fortissimo chords, and the work is suddenly

' he poetic musicality of Joshua Bell has earned the American-born --' violinist a prominent position among the leading musicians of the world. He came to national 'attention at age fourteen as winner of the' 7T Seventeen MagazineGeneral Motors compe?tition. His Philadelphia Orchestra debut that same year, followed by his Carnegie Hall debut, an Avery Fisher Career Grant and subsequent exclusive recording contract, '$ created a sensation that rapidly spread throughout the music world. Today, at age thirty-two, Joshua Bell has earned a reputa?tion as a dynamic performer, and a dedicat?ed and thoughtful musician who has suc?cessfully bridged the gap from child prodigy to inspired and mature artist.
Born in Bloomington, Indiana, Joshua Bell received his first violin at age five. He became seriously committed to the instru?ment by age twelve, when he had the privi-i lege to meet renowned violinist and peda-; gogue Josef Gingold, who became his beloved teacher and mentor. In 1981, Mr.
Bell made his highly acclaimed orchestral __
debut with Riccardo Muti and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Since that time, he has performed with the world's leading symphony orchestras and conductors. ,
Joshua Bell's 1999-2000 season began in Australia with the Sydney and West ,'$j Australian Symphony Orchestras. He ;;i appeared at the Mostly Mozart Festival in :; New York with the Camerata Academica : Salzburg and performed at the Ravinia and Tanglewood Music Festivals, in addition to a .M "Proms" concert at London's Royal Albert WiM Hall. He has recently renewed his collabora'? tion with longtime friend, bassist and com.J
poser Edgar Meyer. The two organized a 'M,__,
quartet with legendary bluegrass musicians Sam Bush and Mike Marshall for a collabo?ration which features a unique fusion of classical and bluegrass musical styles. Their ' first performances were at the Aspen Music .-Festival, Indiana University, and the ifiv
Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. A subsequent recording for Sony Classical entitled Short Trip Home was released in September 1999 to coincide with a fifteen-city concert tour.
North American orchestral engagements included appearances with the Chicago, Atlanta, San Francisco, Indianapolis and New Jersey symphony orchestras. He also performed with Washington's National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center and in Carnegie Hall with the Orchestra of St. Luke's. International engagements were with the Cologne Chamber Orchestra at the Beethovenfest Bonn, Trieste Orchestra, London's Philharmonic and Philharmonia, Munich's Bavarian Radio Symphony, NDR
Symphony Orchestra Hamburg, Palermo Orchestra Simfonica Siciliana, Berlin Symphony, Strasbourg Philharmonic and Orchestra Sinfonica di Milano. He also played and conducted the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra.
To further explore his interest in a vari?ety of musical genres, Joshua Bell inaugurat?ed a series of chamber music concerts in January 1997 at London's Wigmore Hall. This series was lauded by critics and has become an annual event. The Independent declared: "Joshua Bell has managed to sell out all four recitals and, to judge by the splendid second and third programmes, no ticket holders will have been disappointed." Mr. Bell returned to London's Wigmore Hall in January 2000 to continue the series with three performances centering around the works of Brahms and Mendelssohn. He was joined by his most regular chamber music partner cellist Steven Isserlis, clarinetist Michael Collins, pianist Alexander Lonquich and the Vellinger String Quartet. He also collaborates regularly with close friends and colleagues such as Pamela Frank, Zoltan g Kocsis, Olli Mustonen, Jon Kimura Parker, Jean-Yves Thibaudet, Tabea Zimmerman and the Orion String Quartet.
For the past three years, Joshua Bell has been involved in the production and pro?motion of The Red Violin, a feature film released in June 1999. The film features an Oscar-winning score by renowned compos?er John Corigliano and traces the fictional history of a rare violin through three cen?turies. Mr. Bell served as artistic advisor to director Francois Girard, body double and the performing artist responsible for all vio?lin sound. He gave world premiere perfor?mances of Mr. Corigliano's Red Violin Chaconne with the San Francisco Symphony and Boston Symphony Orchestra and also premiered the Suite from the Red Violin with Jonathan Sheffer and the Eos Orchestra.
Joshua Bell is interested in the works of living composers and, in addition to the Corigliano Red Violin Chaconne and his work with Edgar Meyer, has recently per?formed and recorded the world premieres of two works written for him: a violin concerto by eminent British composer Nicholas Maw, and Air for violin and piano by American composer Aaron Jay Kernis. He is unique among his peers in that he has composed his own cadenzas for most of the major vio?lin concertos. His cadenzas for the Brahms, Beethoven, Haydn and Mozart violin con?certos have received consistent praise from conductors and critics alike.
In October 1996, Joshua Bell signed an exclusive recording contract with Sony Classical. The Red Violin soundtrack, featur?ing the film's orchestral score and the Red Violin Chaconne, was released in May 1999 and received a Grammy nomination for "Best Instrumental Composition Written For A Motion Picture" and won an Academy Award for "Best Original Score." Additional releases, including the Sibelius and 3JJJjjj Goldmark violin concertos with Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the Nicholas Maw Violin Concerto with Roger Norrington and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, were released in the spring of 2000.
Joshua Bell has been featured on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson, A&E's Biography and Breakfast with the Arts, CNN, CBS and NBC News, CNBC, and PBS' Evening at Pops and Live from Lincoln Center. He was one of the first classical musicians to be the focus of a music video, which has been broadcast on the VH1, A&E and Bravo television networks. Mr. Bell was the subject of a March 1995 documentary film presented on BBC's Omnibus, recently broadcast on Bravo. He has been featured on National Public Radio's All Things Considered and Morning Edition and in Esquire, Glamour, Newsweek, New York,
People, and Gramophone magazines. ?fipljfl Joshua Bell holds an Artist Diploma "" ''-'1 from Indiana University. In 1998, he began ; teaching a series of master classes at London's Royal Academy of Music, a project' he continues to develop this season. Mr. Bell-resides in New York City and his interests include tennis, golf, chess and computers. He plays an Antonio Stradivari violin dated 1732, known as the "Tom Taylor." :
Tonight's performance marks Joshua Bell's third appearance under UMS auspices.
0 ir Roger Norrington is a native of . Oxford, England, where he came "; from a university family with strong musical connections. He wa a talented boy soprano, studying the violin from the age of ten, and singing from seventeen, but his higher education was in English Literature at Cambridge. After sev?eral years experience as a violinist, tenor and conductor, he returned to his studies at the Royal College of Music under Sir Adrian , Boult. i
In 1962, he founded the Schiitz Choir and thus began a thirty-year exploration of ? historical performance practice. With the Choir, he gave many innovative concerts } and made numerous recordings for ,
ArgoDecca, mainly of seventeenthand I nineteenth-century repertoire. Such perfor-1 mances were at first accompanied by the London Baroque Players, but as the period of rediscovery moved forward, the London Classical Players (LCP) became the normal partner. When Norrington reached the era of the symphony in his researches, the LCP took on a life of its own and the Schiitz ?-Choir went into semi-retirement.
The LCP leapt to worldwide renown, with Norrington's dramatic performances of the Beethoven symphonies on period instru?ments. The recordings of these for EMI won
prizes in the UK, Germany, Belgiui and the United States, and are still among the most sought after readings of modern times. Many other ground?breaking recordings followed, not only of
Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven but of a stream of nineteenth-century masters: Berlioz, Weber, Schubert, Mendelssohn, wi Rossini, and Schumann, which carried the research forward into the Romantic Movement. Most recently remarkable record?ings of Brahms' four Symphonies, of Wagner, Bruckner and Smetana have moved the boundaries even further.
Norrington's work on scores, on sound, on orchestra size, seating and playing style, has had a profound effect on the way nine?teenth-century music is now perceived, and not surprisingly, he is in great demand by symphony orchestras worldwide. He works regularly with orchestras in Berlin, Vienna, Salzburg, Amsterdam, Paris, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, and, of course, London. He is Chief Conductor of the Radio Sinfonie Orchester in Stuttgart and of the Camerata Academica in Salzburg. He is closely associated with the London ,-v!gj$(j?jiij' Philharmonic and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, which has, since January 1997, taken over the work of the London Classical Players.
For ten years, Sir Norrington was an exclusive EMI artist. Now, again, he has a major contract with Decca, but also records for Sony and BMG, as well as EMI and Virgin Classics. He is currently recording a complete cycle of Vaughan Williams Symphonies with the London Philharmonic for Decca.
Sir Norrington's opera experience is as wide as that with symphony orchestras,
choirs arid chamber orchestras. For fifteen years, he was Music Director of the very successful Kent Opera, where he conducted over 400 performances of forty different works. He has worked as a guest in Britain at Covent Garden and the English National Opera and in Italy at La Scala, La Fenice and the Maggio Musicale. He has also received invitations to conduct operas in Vienna, Berlin, Paris and Amsterdam.
Sir Norrington was knighted in June 1997 and is a Commander of the Order of the British Empire, a Cavaliere of the Italian Republic, Prince Consort Professor of the 4 Royal College of Music, an Honorary T Member of the Royal Academy of Music, an Honorary Fellow of Clare College, Cambridge! a Doctor of Music at the University of Kent and a Doctor of the University of York. He lives in the Berkshire countryside with his choreographer wife and small son.
Tonight's performance marks Sir Roger Norrington's sixth appearance under UMS auspices. Sir Roger Norrington first appeared under UMS auspices in residence during the Michigan MozartFest in November 1989. Since then, he has appeared in Ann Arbor with the London Classical Players in 1990 and with The Orchestra of St. Luke's in March 1993. _ ._---
'he Camerata Academica Salzburg
does not comply with the conven?tional notion of a chamber orchestra. Those who play in the Camerata Academica and who shape, form and contribute to its success, must have an artistic disposition that draws its strength mfc from the chamber music dialogue. 'v
Instrumentalists must possess highly tuned, keen hearing, have an open-minded i-
approach, self-confidence and a tolerant attitude. Such pre-requisites are some of the reasons why the Camerata has remained, since it was founded by Bernhard Paumgartner in 1951, a kinship with strong affinities in every phase of its artistic development; to such an extent that it adopted a family character during the long leadership of Sandor Vegh (from 1978 to his death in January 1997). In September 1997, Sir Roger Norrington was appointed chief conductor of the orchestra.
The repertoire takes also the less well-known works of Mozart into consideration and is also dedicated to the masters of the baroque period, the entire Viennese classics through to the main protagonists of the twentieth century (ie. Schonberg, Berg, Bartok, Stravinsky). mM&&i
Extensive sets of works (such as Mozart's serenades, divertimenti, cassations and vari?ous piano concerts) and numerous individ?ual works of the repertoires mentioned were produced for the audio media (Capriccio, DECCA, Philips) under the supervision of Vegh. More recently, Mozart's violin concer?tos (Augustin Dumay) have been recorded for Deutsche Grammophon, the works of HK Gruber (Franz Welser-Most) for EMI, for ERATO (Mozart piano concertos with Till Fellner) and for DECCA (Bach-Cantatas with Matthias Goerne and Sir Roger .?,,ai&i Norrington).
The Camerata Academica Salzburg leads an active schedule with various con?certs and tours amounting to eighty-five
performances per year at home and abroad, mainly sponsored by private initiative.
The Camerata gives a series of concerts in Salzburg in cooperation with the International Mozarteum Foundation and is a frequent guest every year in the Viennese Concert Hall. For many years, the Camerata Academica has been invited to the Salzburg Festival as well as to the Mozart Week
Salzburg as an opera and concert orchestra.
In the year 2000, the Camerata WSi& Academica Salzburg will work together with a large number of artists, such as Murray Perahia, Franz Welser-Most, Pierre Boulez, Maxim Vengerov and Rudolf Buchbinder. ...

azz has long been the art form of constant innovation. Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, two legendary masters of the art, rely heavily on the intuitive relationship they cultivated in the classic Miles Davis quintet from 1963 to 1968 in their sponta?neous performances. "It's something that reverberates from the experience that we had together with Miles," Shorter says of the duo's palpable empathy, "something that was going on in that group, where improvi4 sation and intuition took place at a moment's notice. Whatever made those " recordings unique unto themselves had to j do with being prepared to work on a one-on-one basis, even though the group was a quintet. We bounced off each other, one at a time, and that experience enabled us to be like an extract from the quintet, to do duetiS' based on a lot of things we had lived M through together like a family." $
Mr. Hancock and Mr. Shorter have jjj been exploring the unknown for nearly forty years. They left an indelible stamp on' modern jazz during their joint tenure in the, Miles Davis quintet, along with bassist Ron Carter and the late drummer Tony Williams.
But their individual histories encompass a .. variety of other significant landmarks in I contemporary music. Wayne Snorter's tenor and soprano saxophone virtuosity, his improvisational acumen, and his experi'?? mental approach to structure, harmony, and rhythm became integral to the second great Miles Davis Quintet, inspiring the late ' trumpeter to call him "the intellectual cata?lyst for the band." But he had also been a ? member of Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers ?? from 1958 to 1963, and throughout the six?ties helped give the Blue Note label its leg?endary status as a haven of innovative post-bop. His timeless albums from that era ffl include Speak No Evil, Schizophrenia, and g The Soothsayer, and several of Shorter's ?. compositions, such as "Footprints," "Water Babies," and "Pinocchio," have become -touchstones of the modern jazz canon. w P As Miles made the transition from .'Jg purely acoustic music to plugged-in jazz-rock with In a Silent Way and Bitches Brew, Shorter was a valuable contributor, and he went on to further pioneer the fusion move?ment when he formed Weather Report with keyboardist Joe Zawinul and bassist Miroslav Vitous in 1970. Bassist Jaco Pastorius later
joined the band, and Weather Report soared to unprecedented popularity, scoring the first mil?lion-selling fusion album with Heavy Weather in 1978. On the solo front, Shorter recorded Native Dancer, his breakthrough Brazilian-influenced album with vocalist Milton Nascimento, in 1974. His 1980s recordings included the Grammy-nominat?ed Atlantis (1985), Phantom Navigator (1987), and Joy Ryder (1988). He also appeared in Bertrand Tavenier's acclaimed Round Midnight in 1986 and received a Grammy nomination for his contribution to that film's
soundtrack, Call Sheet Blues. Before return?ing to solo recording in 1995 with High Life, which featured keyboardist Rachel Z., bassist Marcus Miller, guitarist David Gilmore, percussionist Airto Moreira, and drummer Will Calhoun, Shorter added his . distinctive saxophone sounds to the sound-' tracks of the feature-films Glengarry Glen,., Ross, The Fugitive, and Losing Isaiah. mk
Herbie Hancock was classically trained as a youth, performing Mozart with sym?phony orchestras as a teen. His shift to jazz took full effect when he broke into the pro?fessional ranks playing with saxophone ? ?? legend Coleman Hawkins and trumpeter Donald Byrd. Like Shorter, he was a main, stay of the Blue Note stable before, during and after his tenure with Miles in the 1960s, recording such timeless albums as Maiden , Voyage, Speak Like a Child, and Takin' Off, and adding such classic compositions as "Dolphin Dance" and "Watermelon Man" to the lexicon. The rhythmic innovations hes displayed during his five years with Miles exploded into the jazz and funk inventions of his Head Hunters band (with Bennie Maupin, Harvey Mason, Paul Jackson, and Bill Summers). The trailblazing Head Hunters album of 1973 not only became one of the best-selling jazz albums of all time, eventually achieving platinum status, but it ,' has become a source of samples for the cur-: rent hip-hop generation.
Although much of Hancock's notoriety and popularity since the 1970s has been based on his electronic, dance-beat experi?ments, such as the MTV hit "Rockit" in the ; 1980s and the hip-hop-timed Dis Is Da Drum in 1994, he was never far removed . from his acoustic roots. In 1976, he and K Shorter were reunited to record and tour in j V.S.O.P., featuring members of the Miles I Davis Quintet with Freddie Hubbard in the s trumpet role. The 1983 edition of the same I band featured an up-and-coming Wynton ?" Marsalis. In 1986, Hancock won an Oscar
for his original score to Round Midnight, ' and the following year he launched his ,"._
acoustic jazz trio with Buster Williams on bass and Al Foster on drums. His Grammy-winning 1996 recording, The New Standard, featuring Michael Brecker, John Scofield, .s Dave Holland, Jack Dejohnette, and Don Alias, was less a radical departure for the , idiosyncratic pianist than a brilliant consolidation of strains that have been crucial to ., his music all along. i$
In the late 1980s and early '90s, the paths of Shorter and Hancock continued to intertwine. They joined bassist Stanley Clarke and drummer Omar Hakim for a series of all-star concerts and spearheaded the 1992 "Tribute to Miles" tour (which fea?tured rising star Wallace Roney on trumpet). ?.; They also performed together at President : Clinton's first and second term inaugurals in 1993 and 1997. Shortly thereafter, both J Hancock and Shorter pursued new individyjj ual projects: Hancock continues to tour ,j
with a variety of band configurations and_jp has started the Rhythm of Life Foundation, " dedicated to putting technology to the seri vice of humanity, aiming especially at older , teenagers and young adults. Shorter is j
sketching out ideas for his next jazz album, 1 with the notion of a subsequent classical recording brewing in his mind.
"We have to put on our Isaac Stern and Horowitz clothes in order to go out and weather that storm," Shorter says with a chuckle in response to the "1 + 1" tour. "A lot of the people who came before Wayne and me are gone," Hancock adds. "So now, in some sense he and I are the old guard even though the music is still new. The main thing is to really capture the moment and capture something honest in the

String Quartet in D Major, Op. 20, ,v No. 4
;'3 Franz Joseph Haydn'1 . . ...?,.
Born March 31,1732 in Rohrau, Lower Austria Died May 31, 1809 in Vienna . -
The "Sun" quartets, as Haydn's Op. 20 is 'known, are among the first in which the vio?lin line is not merely a solo accompanied by M' three subordinate instruments. In these works, Haydn began the integration of the ensemble that resulted in the greatest development of '??? e sr'nS Quartet form up to and beyond that " time. The cello solo that dominates the highly . original "Menuetto" is recognition of Haydn's integration of individual parts in this genre.
Elegance is the keynote of the first movement, "Allegro di molto." This is ; Abendmusik for a princely salon, where it , undoubtedly had its first hearing. The sec?ond movement, a theme and four variations, reminds one of its counterpart in th. much later "Emperor" Quartet. Here again the cello is given an eminent spot, particu-: larly in the second variation, ;
The short minuet is the most inventive ? movement of the quartet. On its few mea-lsures, Haydn has lavished his most polished craft, its attractive syncopation and subtle canonic treatment arresting the ear. Marked "Allegretto alia zingarese" it is less gypsy-like than the last movement, which bears a rela-l tion to the "Gypsy Rondo" in the Piano Trio I in G Major and its Hungarian folk base.
Piano Sonata No. 31 in A-flat Major,
feop. no ill J ??"?'
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna -
A London critic wrote in 1824, at just about the time Beethoven's Piano Sonata in A-flat Major had reached England, "Beethoven's
compositions more and more assume the character of studied eccentricity. He does not write much now, but most of what he . produces is impenetrably obscure in design. and so full of unaccountable and often repulsive harmonies, that he puzzles the , critic as much as he perplexes the per"?? . former." Yet, the melodic material made this sonata one of Beethoven's relatively accessi-ble late works, as it is strongly expressive, lyrical, dreamy, and even elegiac. It is also a bold expansion of the idea of a sonata, $ ' requiring it to admit such procedures as ' recitative and fugue, for example. Beethoven dated his manuscript of the Sonata December 25, 1821, but he may have revised the finale in 1822, shortly before its publica-tion in Berlin and Paris. In 1823, he tried to arrange for its publication in London, too, but it was already known there in the Continental edition. r!QJ
The first movement, "Moderato Mj cantabile, molto espressivo," is a perfect, ii seamless, sonata-form structure, brief and apparently of great simplicity, but actually stretching great harmonic distances, with a gracious--or amiable, as Beethoven says-opening phrase that seems perfectly laid out for a string quartet, rather than for the piano. Elsewhere, too, the music seems to be going in the direction of Beethoven's last quartet, which was begun around 1822.
The second movement, "Molto allegro," is a major-key scherzo, in duple meter but with a highly irregular rhythm that makes a strong contrast with the lyrical mood of the first movement. Its second theme resembles a German folk song, and in the contrasting central section the difficult passage-work for the right hand is made more difficult by the rhythmic displacement of the left hand's single notes. -raSHGB
The reminder of the work is one of Beethoven's new structures, a combination of slow movement and fast finale. The sequence of musical events is as follows: ?$
a slow introduction, Adagio ma non troppo; a plaintive recitative, a beautiful arioso lament; then a complex fugue, Allegro ma non troppo; a "Chopinesque" ornamented version of the lament in a key that tradi?tional harmony reckons to be as remote as one could get; a mysterious inversion of the fugue in the new key; and then a long clos?ing section based on the fugue theme that, of course, arrives back in the original key of A-flat.
Piano Quintet in E-flat Major, Op. 44
Robert Schumann 1_
Born June 8, 1810 in Zwickau, Saxony .
Died July 29, 1856 in Endenkh, near Bonn .
The year 1842 was Schumann's "chamber ; music year," just as 1841 had been his "sym?phony year" and 1840 his "song year." At this crucial point in his career, the composer who until then had concentrated mostly on solo piano music, made a conscious effort to conquer the other musical genres of the time. This expansion in Schumann's creative output certainly wouldn't have happened without another fortunate "conquest:" on September 12,1840, he married Clara Wieck after a courtship of many years during which the couple had to overcome numer?ous obstacles (not least the objections of .? . Friedrich Wieck, Clara's father and ;$
Schumann's former piano teacher).., The long-awaited union with his beloved released enormous creative energies in Schumann; in 1842, his "chamber music year" alone, Schumann completed his three string quartets (Op. 41), his Piano Quintet Op. 44 and Piano Quartet Op. 47, in addi?tion to the Phantasiestiicke for piano trio (Op. 88). It was an enormous amount of work, completed amidst the demands of a growing family and between bouts of the severe depression that had plagued him since his youth. (His condition would even-
tually worsen to the point where, in 1854, he attempted suicide and was committed to a mental hospital for the rest of his life. The nature of Schumann's illness is still being debated among psychiatrists; bipolar-manic-depressive--disorder is perhaps the : most likely diagnosis.) 1
The Quintet in E-flat Major, one of a Schumann's most popular works, plumbs I those extreme mood swings that character--ized the composer's mental state at the time of composition. Few works in the entire his-tory of music are more despondent than the Quintet's second-movement funeral march, and few are more carefree than the third. movement, "Scherzo," with its rapid scales scurrying up and down. Framing those tw(M poles are an energetic "Allegro brillante" inl sonata form that combines solemn, lyrical 1 and playful moments, and a finale -j "Allegro ma non troppo" -full of zest, j jumping happily from key to key and ...Jj culminating in a grandiose fugue.SMSlM!!.,
Schumann dedicated the Quintet to his wife Clara, one of the greatest pianists of the nineteenth century. Throughout her long M life (she outlived her husband by forty J years), she participated in so many performances of this work that biographer Nancy Reich aptly called it her "signature piece." jg
In chamber music written for piano and strings, the piano traditionally plays the leading role. This was the case in the piano trios and quartets of Mozart and Beethoven, and even more so in the works of the early-nineteenth-century virtuosos--people like-jg Moscheles or Kalkbrenner, now forgotten '8 but crucial to Schumann's development-who wrote for piano and instrumental ensembles of varying sizes. Schumann, while not taking anything away from the piano,
entrusting them with important melodic 'f material both individually and as a group. He was the first major composer to combine the piano with a string quartet, well estab-
lished by then as the most important type of chamber ensemble. (Schubert's "Trout" Quintet, an important predecessor, includes the double bass and has only one violin.) With this work, Schumann created a whole new genre, which inspired such later mas?terpieces as the piano quintets of Brahms, Dvorak, and. Franck........ ..

enahcm Pressler was born in Magdeburg, Germany, and received most of his early musi?cal training in Israel. He began his international career when.... he won first prize in the Debussy Piano ) Competition in San Francisco in 1946, a distinction that led to solo appearances in recitals and with major US orchestras. He made his North American debut with the Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Eugene Ormandy, which was followed by extensive tours throughout the US and Europe and appearances with many leading orchestras, among them New York, Washington, Chicago, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, London, Paris and Brussels.
In 1955 he co-founded the Beaux Arts Trio with Daniel Guilet and Bernard Greenhouse. That same year the Beaux Arts Trio made its debut at Tanglewood. In the intervening years the Beaux Arts Trio has become one of the most enduring, and most widely acclaimed chamber-music ensem?bles, has been credited with giving rise to the enormous popularity of the piano-trio literature, and the proliferation of perma?nent piano trios. It has recorded and re?recorded almost the entire chamber-music-with-piano literature and has inspired numerous eminent contemporary com?posers to write works for it, among them Ned Rorem's Spring Music which was com?missioned by Carnegie Hall, and which .

received its world premiere during Carnegie Hall's Centennial Celebration and was later performed in Ann Arbor.
In the year 1955, Mr. Pressler also start?ed his long association with Indiana University, where he holds the rank of Distinguished Professor of Music, and where his teaching has gained him wide recognition, enhanced by his masterclasses in many countries. He is also a frequent guest of some of the foremost string quar?tets. Deutsche Grammophon has just released his recordings with the Emerson Quartet of Dvorak's and Schumann's piano quartets and quintets.
While expanding his field of activity, Mr. Pressler has always continued his solo performances, albeit on a reduced scale. He recently recorded, for Philips Records, Beethoven's Choral Fantasy with the Leipzig Gewandhaus and Kurt Masur. Richard Dyer, of the Boston Globe, wrote about it as fol?lows: "It's always fun to hear the Choral Fantasy, which begins in one place and ends in another, as an early glimpse of the finale of the Symphony No. 9. Pressler plays the long introduction with enormous imagina?tion and authority, scampers delightfully through the variations, and then splashes
ornamentation around the chorus at the ' end like a kid in a summer pool."
In 1999, Mr. Pressler was awarded the Gramophone Lifetime Achievement Award. He also embarked on a groundbreaking video project with Isaac Stem and Yo-Yo Ma focused on the teaching of young children.
This afternoon's performance marks Menahem Pressler's tenth appearance under UMS aus?pices. He last appeared under UMS auspices with the Emerson String Quartet at Rackham Auditorium on November 22, 1998.
Mr. Pressler will be appearing as a member of the Beaux Arts Trio in concert with the Prague Chamber Orchestra at Hill Auditorium on March 7, 2001 as part of UMS' 122nd Annual Choral Union Series. ,.?:?.?

Sitar master Ravi Shankar, India's most recf Ognizcd and esteemed musical ambassador, celebrates his eightieth birth year with con?certs around the world. This tour is a culmi-I'nation of Mr. Shankar's extraordinary career c in which he has shared his love of Indian
music and culture with people of all If nations. Beginning the day he joined his brother Uday's dance troupe in 1930, Ravi Shankar embarked on a pioneering path S which forged the way for so many of us to understand and love this exceptional music. "??' Full Circle marks this journey which Mr. Shankar celebrates with you.
he sitar is the most popular stringed instrument of India. Though it has gone through many changes and improvements, it has _ existed in its present form for approximately seven-hundred years. It is fashioned from a seasoned gourd and teak-wood. It has a track of twenty metal frets, with six or seven main-playing strings placed below. The sympathetic strings are 1 strummed upon occasion, with the little fin?ger of the right hand inserted in the main strings, which are tuned to the raga being played, and the main strings are plucked by a plectrum worn on the index finger of the right hand.
The tabla is the two-piece drum of India. The right-hand drum (the tabla) is tuned to the tonic, dominant, and sub-dom?inant, and is tuned with a hammer. The left-hand drum (or bayan) acts as the bass drum and is capable of many tones that can be f varied by degrees of pressure from the base of the left palm.
The pakhawaj is a one-piece ancient drum of India. The modern-day tabla evolved from this drum. In India, pakhawaj
has a dignity, and with its very deep sound, it is compared to "Elephants Walk, or dis?tant thunder!" It was more popular along .jragp with the old form of dhrupad and dhaniafWM singing and accompanying the ancient SB! instruments, veena and rahab. Only a few people play this drum today.
The tamboura is a four or five-stringed instrument that gives an essential drone '&M background to all Indian music. It is tuned ? ":" to the raga being performed and emphasizes the tonic, dominant, and sub-dominant, according to the raga.
The system of Indian classical music known as Raga Sangeet can be traced backjgjjj nearly two-thousand years to its origin in the Vedic hymns. Unlike Western classical music, as much as ninety percent of Indian music may be improvised, depending on the artistic facility and creative imagination of the performer. Our musical tradition is an oral one, taught directly to the student by his guru, rather than by the system of writ?ten notation used in the West. $ii&$B$S8i!!mi
The very heart of Indian music is the raga; the melodic form upon which the artist improvises his performance. A raga is a scientific, precise, subtle, and aesthetic melodic form with its own specific ascend?ing and descending movement consisting of either a full seven-note octave, or a series of six or five notes.
The are seventy-two basic melas, or par?ent scales on which all ragas are based. The subtle difference in the order of notes, an omission of a dissonant note, an emphasis on a particular note, and the use of micro-tones and other effects all distinguish one raga from the other.
Every raga is also characterized by its own particular rasa, or principal mood. The acknowledged order of these nine senti?ments or emotions is as follows: romantic and erotic, humorous, pathetic, angry, hero?ic, fearful, disgustful, amazed, and peaceful. Each raga, in addition to being associated
with a particular mood, is also closely con?nected to a particular time of day or season of the year. Thus, via the rich melodies and rhythm of Indian music, every human emo?tion, every subtle feeling in man and nature, can be musically expressed and experienced.
In terms of aesthetics, a raga is a projec?tion of the artist's inner spirit; a manifesta?tion of his most profound feelings and sen?sibilities. The musician must breathe life into each raga as he unfolds and expands it until each note shimmers and pulsates with life and the raga is revealed, vibrant and incandescent with beauty.
Next to be considered are the talas, or rhythmic cycles of a raga. There is a unique intricacy and rhythmic sophistication in Indian music. There are talas ranging from a three-beat cycle to 108 beats within a cycle! The divisions in a tola and the stress on the first beat, called sum, are the most impor?tant features.
Different talas with the same number of beats may have stresses on different beats (for example: a bar of ten beats can be divided as 2-3-2-3, 3-3-4, 3-4-3, or 4-4-2). Within the framework of the fixed beats, the drummer can improvise to the same extent as the main artist. The most exciting moment for a seasoned listener is when j both musicians, after their individual Jj improvisations, come back together on "Jjj the sum. The most popular talas are: ?'!$
cycle of six'beats, divided 3-3 ;; ?? ? ?? '?'?'--
cycle of seven beats, divided 3-2-2 ;
cycle often beats, divided 2-3-2-3 2
cycle of twelve beats, divided 4-4-2-2
Ada Chautal: ,
cycle of fourteen beats, divided 2-4-4-4
cycle of sixteen beats, divided 4-4-4-
' Although overtones are very much a part of Indian music, there are no deliberate modulations or harmonics, as in Western music. The existing harmony is in its sim-'l plest form and is more inherent than preI conceived. Ideally, the new listener in the m West is invited to forget counterpoint, har-? mony, and mixed color tones when he hears our music and instead relax into the rich melody and rhythm of our ancient art. With an open mind, he will be introduced to a -JI whole world of sound, of tones and micro-tones and improvisation never heard before.
The improvisational nature of Indian.J music requires the artist to take into consid: eration the setting, time allowed for his coq-cert, his mood, and the feeling he discerns j[ in the audience before he begins to play. .? Since our music is spiritual in origin, the 9 traditional recital begins with the alap sec-Jj tions, the stately and serene exploration ofjB the chosen raga. After this slow, introspec-tive, heartfelt, sometimes sad beginning, the musician moves on to the jor. In this part,.r rhythm enters and is developed, and innu' merable variations on the raga's basic theme are elaborated. There is no drum accompa?niment in either the alap, the jor, or the third section, jhala, where the side strings ;fjj, are played in rapid speed. "tl
The alap, jar, and jhala evolve into the gal, the fixed composition of the raga. Here, the drums enter with the wonderful rhyth-sj mic structure of the gal and its time cycle Jj the tala. A gal can be in any tala, and in Sra slow, medium or fast tempo. The musician improvises on a variety of jaans (musical phrases at four different speeds) and lodasW (a combination of plucked passages). The jg gal (a fixed composition anywhere between four and sixteen bars long) is the vehicle to which the artist must return after his impro-visation. "
While the Indian musician has complete freedom to improvise as he wishes, he may do so only as long as he does not
depart from a format of the raga and tala. The step-by-step accel?eration of the rhythm in the gal finally culminates in the return of the jhala: the final movement and climax of the raga. Here, the music becomes more and more playful and exciting. Sawal jahab, the dazzling interplay and rapid exchange between the sitar and tabla, has the power to enthrall and amaze the most uninitiated listener as it brings the raga to its conclusion. ig Often, at the conclusion of a recital, the musician may choose
to play a thurmi or dhum. This semi-classi?cal style is much freer and is completely romantic, sensual, and erotic. Today, Indian classical music is a permanent part of 3JL Western culture. Many composers and musicians have been influenced by our music. The openness, willingness to learn, and sincere enthusiasm of Western audi?ences are a continuing source of inspiration and delight.
Program note by Ravi Shankar.
egendary virtuoso sitarist, composer, teacher and writer, Ravi Shankar is renowned throughout the world for his pioneering work in bring-1 ing Indian music to the West. He has been a cultural influence in the West for more than three decades as India's most rec?ognized and esteemed musical ambassador.
The youngest son of a Bengali family, he was born in 1920 in Varansi (Benares), the holiest of Indian cities. At the age of ten he accompanied his elder brother, Uday Shankar, with his company of dancers and musicians to Paris where he attended school. He spent several years in the West absorbing different kinds of music but
returned to India in 1938 where he began-jjk his career in his native India. He combined his concert performances with his work for All India Radio (1949-56) where he estab?lished the National Chamber Orchestra. As word of his virtuosity spread throughout
Shankar embarked on one of the most :j extraordinary careers in the history of cor temporary music. ;
Ravi Shankar is a prolific composer and in addition to his numerous ragas and talas, he has written for musicians from the East and West including Yehudi Menuhin, Jean-Pierre Rampal and Japanese artists. Among his works are two concertos for sitar and orchestra, the first commissioned by the London Symphony Orchestra and premiered under Andre Previn. In 1980 he was com?missioned by the New York Philharmonic, under the direction of Zubin Mehta, to compose Raga-Mala (A garland of ragas), which was his Second Sitar Concerto. Ravi Shankar also wrote, composed and choreo?graphed the ballet Ghanashyam, a piece that made history on the British and Indian cul?tural scenes. Mr. Shankar has composed extensively for ballets and films including Satyajit Ray's Apu trilogy, which raised film music to a new standard of excellence, and
Gandhi, the Academy Award-winning classic by Sir Richard Attenborough which won him nominations for both an Oscar and a Grammy Award.
Ravi Shankar is the recipient of many awards and honors including the Presidential Padma Vibhushan Award (1980) and the Award of Deshikottam, given by Vishawa Bharati and presented in December 1982 by then Prime Minister, the late Mrs. Indira Gandhi. Mr. Shankar is an honorary mem?ber of the American Academy of the Arts and Letters and recipient of twelve doctorates. In 1986 he became a member of the Rajya Sabha, India's Upper House of Parliament. He is a Fellow of the Sangeet Natak Academy and Founder President of The Research Institute for Music and the Performing Arts. In 1999, the government of India honored Ravi Shankar by awarding him its highest civilian award, the "Bharat Ratna" or Jewel of India. In February 2000, Mr. Shankar received France's highest civilian award, the .r "Commandeur de la Legion d'Honneur". jj
Ravi Shankar's extensive discography of over sixty albums continues to grow, and in 1996 Angel records released In Celebration, a lavishly documented four-CD retrospective of his greatest recordings, in honor of his seventy-fifth birthday. AngelEMI is contin?uing to release many of Mr. Shankar's -albums previously unavailable on CD. Called the "Godfather of World Music" by George Harrison, Ravi Shankar has also been given the title "Global Ambassador" by the World Economic Forum. 'H
He continues to tour each season all over the world dividing his time between India and the US with regular visits to Europe and the Far East. He is the author of three books--My Music, My Life (in English), Rag Anurag (in Bengali) and Raga Mala (English)--the latest of which is an autobi?ography that was released in Fall 1999.
Perhaps no other greater tribute can be paid to this remarkable musician than the
words of his colleague, Yehudi Menuhin: '
H. ? Ravi Shankar has brought me a precious ''. gift and through him I have added a new ? dimension to my experience of music. To ' me, his genius and his humanity can only,.,' be compared to that of Mozart's. S.

second appearance under UMS auspices. . E
t the young age of nineteen, AnoushkaShankar has shown herself to be a unique artist with tremendous talent and underi _ _ standing of the great musical tra?dition of India. Anoushka is the only artist in the world to be trained completely by her . father and legendary sitar virtuoso and composer, Ravi Shankar. She has been pla; ing and studying with him since she was '-,--nine, working first on a "baby" sitar that was built especially for her. At age thirteen she made her performing debut in New Delhi; India. That same year, Anoushka entered the recording studio for the first time to play on her father's recording, In Celebration. Two years later she helped as conductor with her father and George Harrison, Mr. Shankar's friend and frequent colleague, on the 1997 Angel release, Chants of India. Shortly there?after she signed an exclusive contract with AngelEMI Classics. In the Fall of 1998 her first solo recording, Anoushka, was released to tremendous critical acclaim. Her seconc album Anourag is due to be released in
August 2000. wmffi$mm$M&Mi
As her solo career continues to blossom, she is poised to carry forward her father's legacy as one of the most creative and influ?ential figures in the music world. In recogni?tion of her artistry and musicianship, on July 17,1998 the British Parliament presented Anoushka with a House of Commons Shield. She is the youngest as well as the sole female recipient of this honor.
'If Ravi Shankar is the ' guardian of Indian classical music, Anoushka is certainly the successor to his throne, by virtue of ability alone."
Dubai, February 2000 -,i$$?Vf;''
Born in London, Anoushka Shankar has grown up in California, where she recently graduated with honors from public school in Encinitas, and in India, where she spends part of every winter performing with her father and visiting her family. She is also a gifted classical pianist with a wide range of interests. But her devotion to the sitar and to her father's guidance is unmistakable, with a discipline that has led her into an already extraordinary performing career.
In addition to her own concerts, Anoushka continues touring the world with her father's ensemble with performances in India, Europe, Asia and the US. Anoushka is also championing her father's Concerto No. 1 for Sitar and Orchestra, which she first per?formed with Zubin Mehta conducting the London Philharmonic Orchestra in March 1997. In July 1999 Anoushka premiered a -new work for sitar and cello, written by her father, Ravi Shankar, with cellist Mstislav Rostropovich at the Evian Festival. Most recently, Anoushka became the first woman to ever perform at The Ramakrishna Centre in Calcutta in February 2000. , .-...
Tonight's performance marks Anoushka Shankar's UMS debut. .. .., .? .
Hailing from Calcutta, the much sought after tabla virtuoso Bikram Ghosh had his primary training of tabla from his illustrious father, Shankar Ghosh, and later from the great tabla guru, Jnan Prakash Ghosh.' He also was trained in the South Indian Carnatic style of drumming by the mridan-gist, S. Sekhar, Throughout his career, Mr. Ghosh has accompanied all the stalwarts of vocal and instrumental music. He has a number of CDs to his credit as an accompa?nist as well as a soloist. Since 1995, Ravi Shankar has taken him as his accompanist in some of his major concerts in India, Europe, the US and in the Far East. Mr. Ghosh has recorded several CDs including a recording of solo tabla. He has lectured on tabla performance at the reputed Rabindra Bharati (Calcutta) and the Vishwa Bharati (Shantiniketan) Universities.
Tonight's performance marks Bikram Ghosh's second appearance under UMS auspices.
Born in to a family of music connoisseurs, Tanmoy Bose was exposed to the subtle nuances of music and rhythm since childhood. Though he received vocal training from Shri Maharaj Banarjee and learned harmonium from the late Montu Banarjee, the charm of rhythm attracted Tanmoy towards the tabla.
A disciple of the late Kanai Dutta and Pandit Shankar Ghosh, Tanmoy has devel?oped a balanced technique which does not restrain itself to any one particular Gharana or school. Tanmoy has carved a niche for himself among the younger generation of top-ranking musicians of the country. A sought after tabla player both as a soloist and an accompanist, he has participated in numerous prestigious musical events in India and abroad winning accolades wherever he performs.
Tonight's performance marks Tanmoy Bose's UMS debut. ????? v

1 he 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
