I) MS leadership
'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.
I am particularly excited about the three-week residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company in March 2001. Three years in development, the RSC residency represents the largest international project ever under?taken by UMS in our 122-year history. UMS is especially grateful for the personal interest and involvement of University of Michigan President Lee C. Bollinger and for the leading financial support of the University of Michigan and the State of Michigan in this historic project. The presentation of William Shakespeare's History Plays, along with the extensive educational programs that sur?round the performances, takes place only in Ann Arbor and in Stratford-upon-Avon and London in England. We are pleased to welcome theater lovers from all over North America = who are taking advantage of this exclusive ..j US presentation in our community. HM It takes a large group of dedicated and tal?ented people to put bring you the Royal Shakespeare Company and the other world-
renowned artists and ensembles that have been part of UMS' tradition since 1879. I'm privileged to work with an outstanding Board of Directors, Senate, Advisory Committee, and staff, all of whom are listed on pages 14-15. In addition, UMS works with more than 500 volunteers who serve in our dedicated usher corps, sing in our outstanding Choral Union, and assist us with many of our programs, especially our Youth Education Program.
It is the UMS staff (see photo) who works day in and day out to assure that you are able to see and hear the world's best performing artists. The programming staff, led by Michael Kondziolka, works with artists and artists' managers to design a diverse, exciting, and high-quality season, which this year fea?tures over ninety performances. The produc?tion staff, led by Gus Malmgren, looks after the well-being of our artists and, working with an outstanding group of local stagehands, assures that each performance looks great and runs smoothly. The education and audi?ence development staff, led by Ben Johnson, designs and manages more than 200 events, working with nearly 100 community partners to enhance the audiences' understanding and appreciation of our artists and their work. People learn about our programs through many different media, thanks to the efforts of our marketing staff, led by Sara Billmann, which last year oversaw an all-time record in ticket sales for UMS. Our box office staff, led by Michael Gowing, has a well-deserved rep-
utation of providing outstanding personal?ized service. Our finances, computer systems, human resources, and office management are under the purview of our administrative staff, led by John Kennard. Finally, there is the development staff, led by Christina Thoburn, which must raise nearly half of UMS' budget this year to supplement our income from ticket sales and which has never failed to exceed their ambitious goals in each of the last ten years.
I feel extremely fortunate to work with this outstanding team of colleagues, whom many leaders in our field consider to be the finest 3
staff of any performing arts presenting organization in the country. I hope you will have a chance to get to know members of this exceptional group of people, who delight in their opportunity to serve you and the other members of the UMS family.
If you would like to learn more about UMS, let me suggest that you purchase a copy of Bravo!, a popular, high-quality 224-page cookbook that includes recipes, legends, and lore from our long history. For more infor?mation and to place an order, see page 37.
I'd like to know your thoughts about this performance. I'd also like to learn from you
about anything we can do at UMS to make your performance experience the best possi?ble. If we don't see each other in the lobby, feel free to call my office at 734.647.1174, drop me a note, or send me an e-mail message at

he goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is to engage, edu?cate, and serve Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 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 m UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999.
youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts over eighty performances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center for the Performing Arts, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Detroit Opera House, Music Hall and the Residential College Auditorium.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor cam?pus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contri?butions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
hroughout its 121-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors. Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150-voice Choral Union is known for its definitive per?formances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Seven years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd. In 1995, the Choral Union began accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream ofGerontius, 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 j with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony M Orchestra and musical-theatre favorites with pi Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook..i A 72-voice chorus drawn from the larger j choir has performed Durufle's Requiem, the 'j?j Langlais Messe Solenelle, the Mozart Requiem :M and other works. The Choral Union's 36-voice'p Chamber Chorale presented "Creativity in -il Later Life," a program of late works by nine ,.jj composers of all historical periods, at thell University of Michigan Museum of Art. 5]
During the 1999-2000 season, the Choral jj Union performed in three major subscription',!! series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit .Jf-Symphony Orchestra. Other programs ??
included Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the ; Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra.
During the current season, the UMS Choral Union again appeared in two series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, both conducted by Neeme Jarvi. The chorus joined 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 followed, and 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. 33WWSf
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997. ,.?,
Hill Auditorium i r n
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.

ixty 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 j 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.
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 splendid three manual "mechani?cal action" organ with thirty-four stops and forty-five ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the gaf acoustics of the church building, ' and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and contempla?tion 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 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 the?atres in the nation. In only two sea?sons, the Detroit Opera House became the foundation of a land?mark programming collaboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia Entertainment, formed a partnership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 per?formers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality pro?gramming, partnerships and educa?tional initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Burton Memorial Tower
een from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor land?marks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet.
The familiar home of UMS Administrative offices undergoes significant renovations this season, moving the UMS Box Office to a new, temporary location in the Power Center.
UMS Administrative offices have also been relocated--to 109 E. Madison--but please continue to use our Burton Memorial Tower

Three Symphonic Poems
Program notes by Peter Laki
othing could have been more modern iri the music of the 1880s and '90s than the symphonic poem, that bold attempt to create drama without words and to test music's expressive powers to the fullest.
Pioneered by Franz Liszt from the 1850s ( the new genre found a practitioner of geniuF" in the young Richard Strauss. In a series of orchestral works that established him as one of the leading avant-gardists of the day, Strauss did not hesitate to tackle the most complex literary and philosophical topics possible. Despite the arguments of those who have continued to maintain that music is incapable of expressing such topics, even the intent to do so has an indelible impact on the music; for how could a composer write music that sounds like Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration or A Hero's Life without programmatic thinking There may be traces of sonata form in each of these works, but "Symphonies in C Major" (or any other key) they are clearly not.
That being said, we can't deny the influence of one great Symphony in E-flat Major on Strauss's symphonic poems, espe?cially Ein Heldenleben. Beethoven's Symphony
No. 3, the Eroica, is the undisputed proto-1 type of all portrayals of heroism in music, which is central to all three Strauss works heard tonight. Struggle, mourning and tri?umph--as found in the Eroica--are also the ingredients of all these heroic stories. The youthful, reckless, yet at the same time pro?foundly world-weary Don Juan of Lenau, the unnamed but certainly exceptional dying artist in Death and Transfiguration, and the equally unnamed and exceptional! universal hero in Ein Heldenleben (or Till i8 Eulenspiegel, who pays for his mischiefmaking with his life, or Don Quixote, who loses his battle against the windmills), all 1 have one thing in common. Each time, a great individual genius takes on the entirej world, but only in Ein Heldenleben is a happy ending achieved--not in the sense , of a Beethovenian triumph, but rather by .1 finding peace in the memories of a life welf lived. ?
Don Juan, Op. 20
Richard Strauss
Born June 11, 1864 in Munich, Germany
Died September 8, 1949 in Garmisch-
Partenkirchen, Bavaria ?
Many Romantic writers grappled with the . figure of Don Juan Tenorio, the legendary : skirt-chaser first immortalized by the Spanish playwright Tirso de Molina in the seventeenth century. The Don Juan legend has been called "the greatest erotic subject of all time," but it is obviously much more than that. Don Juan is not your typical sex addict; for him, the possession of women becomes a cosmic matter, and he doesn't hesitate to confront the powers of the underworld to defend his life philosophy. In the Romantic version of Austrian poet Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850), left incomplete at the time of his death, Don Juan doesn't need a stone guest to send him to Hell. He willingly lets the brother of one of his lovers defeat him in a duel, for victory "is as boring as the whole of life." Strauss placed three lengthy excerpts from the poem at the front of his score. These excerpts reveal nothing of the plot, but they summarize the life philosophy Lenau had given his hero:
"" Fain would I run the magic circle,
immeasurably wide, of beautiful women's . manifold charms, in full tempest of
enjoyment, to die of a kiss at the mouth ? oi the last one. O my friend, would that I could fly through every place where beau?ty blossoms, fall on my knees before each one, and, were it but for a moment, con?quer...
I shun anxiety and the exhaustion of pleasure; I keep myself fresh in the service ' of beauty; and in offending the individual 11 rave for my devotion to her kind. The [? breath of a woman that is as the odor of I spring today, may perhaps tomorrow : oppress me like the air of a dungeon. ; When, in my changes, I travel with my : love in the wide circle of beautiful women,
my love is a different thing for each one;Vv, I build no temple out of ruins. Indeed, flv passion is always and only the new passion; it cannot be carried from this one to that; it must die here and spring anew there; and when it knows itself, then it knows ? nothing of repentance. As each beauty stands alone in the world, so stands the love which it prefers. Forth and away, then, to triumphs ever new, so long as youth's fiery pulses race!
It was a beautiful storm that urged me on; it has spent its rage, and silence now remains. A trance is upon every wish, ? every hope. Perhaps a thunderbolt from" the heights which I despised, struck fatally at my power of love, and suddenly my world became a desert and darkened. And perhaps not; the fuel is all consumed and the hearth is cold and dark.'
The quest for ideal love, which pushes Don Juan from one woman to the next, is really a quest for the meaning of life. In gj Lenau's treatment, the Don came close to ' ( being a cousin of Dr. Faust (about whom " he also wrote a drama). The force that moves Don Juan is, of course, not learning but passion; yet they are similar in that fulfillment is denied to both.
Don Juan's passion is evident from the ? first bars of Strauss' score, which is one of the great symphonic openings of all time. From hints dropped by his biographers we may infer that the twenty-four-year-old composer knew a thing or two about passion himself, but the energy of the music, begin?ning on an emotional high point, speaks more clearly than a thousand words. With US admirable ingenuity, Strauss adapts classical sonata form (with its contrasting themes and dynamic key changes) to the expressive needs of the symphonic poem. One of the secondary themes, a sensual motif played by a solo violin, becomes imbued with special meaning as a representation of the "Eternal

Feminine" that so attracts the Don (and not coincidentally, the phrase in quotation marks comes from the Faust drama of Johann Wolfgang Goethe). As this theme is expanded, we can literally feel the power of an all-embracing love. The development section serves as an opportunity to revisit Don Juan's heroic-passionate side, as well as to introduce a new theme. An insistent string theme alternating with some hesitant melodic fragments in the flute: the Don is seducing a timid young girl before our very ears. This extended romantic episode ends abruptly with the appearance of a brand-new theme on the horns: Don Juan, the hero, sallies forth in search of new adventures. The next section, possibly inspired by a masked-ball episode in Lenau's poem and sometimes referred to as the "carnival scene," reaches another emotional "high," but then Don jjJJ Juan suddenly falls into a deep depression. He does gather enough strength for another show of heroism (in musical terms, this is I the recapitulation), but the tragic end can?not be avoided. The Don surrenders to his opponent; the work, so exuberant for most of its length, ends on a bleak note, in the minor mode and pianissimo, with a few short 'E's played by plucked strings, low JB winds and timpani. .-s
Tod und Verklarung, Op. 24
(Death and Transfiguration) R. Strauss . . . .-.,'
In his next symphonic poem after Don Juan,. Strauss dispensed with any literary source; instead, he created an original conception that only received its literary formulation, ; from Strauss' friend and erstwhile mentor, Alexander Ritter, after the music had already: been written. :
The original idea is explained in a letter : written by Strauss in 1894: ;
It was six years ago that it occurred to me i to present in the form of a tone poem the
" '?? dying hours of a man who had striven towards the highest idealistic aims, maybe indeed those of an artist. The sick man m lies in bed, asleep, with heavy irregular breathing; friendly dreams conjure a :
smile on the features of the deeply suffer?ing man; he wakes up; he is once more racked with horrible agonies; his limbs shake with fever--as the attack passes and the pains leave off, his thoughts wander through his past life; his childhood passes before him, the time of his youth with its strivings and passions and then, as the 1--i" pains already begin to return, there appears to him the fruit of his life's path,
the conception, the ideal which he has sought to realize, to present artistically,
: but which he has not been able to com: plete, since it is not for man to be able to accomplish such things. The hour of death approaches, the soul leaves the body in order to find gloriously achieved
' in ever-lasting space those things which could not be fulfilled here below.
An ambitious program, and it is certainly' remarkable that a young man not quite twenty-five-years old should have had such . a highly developed image of death and 'F dying. What is even more astonishing is the unerring instinct with which Strauss real?ized his concept. Melodic material, orches?tration and musical form are all uniquely suited to express that concept; for no matter what the "anti-expressivists" say, Strauss undoubtedly did full justice to his subjects" here.
The stages of the hero's last hours, as'.y Strauss described them in his letter, are '?S? somewhat analogous to the phases of anger, ' denial and acceptance found in Elisabeth Kubler-Ross' famous (and, of course, much later) book on dying. After some introduc?tory measures ("Largo") in which the '', strings' rhythmic figure seems to imitate an irregular heartbeat, the woodwinds, accom?panied by the harp, intone a melody of
unspeakable sadness, followed by the main lyrical idea of the work, based on a descend?ing scale and played by a solo violin. Violent suffering erupts in the ensuing "Allegro molto agitato;" as Norman Del Mar writes in his great Strauss monograph: "the ill man can be heard writhing in agony." The lyrical scale melody returns, this time played by the flute, evoking peaceful memories. But the theme soon becomes agitated again, in evo?cation of both past and present turmoil; as in Don Juan, Strauss endows the traditional formal device of recapitulation with intense dramatic meaning. A sweeping new idea, the "transfiguration" theme, appears in this sec-1 tion, and--after all the other themes, those associated with turmoil, memories and jp" irregular heartbeat, have been revisited and ' left behind--finally takes over completely, to give the piece its radiant and justly celebrat-' ed ending. According to the often-repeated ; story, when Richard Strauss lay dying in 1949 (exactly sixty years after writing this work), he told his daughter-in-law Alice who was with him: "Funny thing, Alice, dying is just the way I composed it in Death and Transfiguration'' Strauss had in fact set to music that "white light" that many people' have mentioned when speaking of near-death experiences--if he had done nothing else in his life, this would in itself be enough to make him immortal. I
Ein Heldenleben, Op. 40 (A Hero's Life)
R. Strauss JS.
Richard Strauss used to insist that he himself was the hero in Ein Heldenleben--though 1., commentators have found it hard to recon?cile this belligerent self-portrait with Strauss' distinctly un-heroic personality, or with later, mellower self-representations in Sinfonia domestka and the opera Intermezzo. On the ! other hand, those who knew Strauss' wife, ' the former Pauline de Ahna, say the section ;
marked "The Hero's Companion" fits her like a glove. Strauss and de Ahna, a soprano, were married in 1894; their marriage lasted until Strauss' death fifty-five years later. The series of magnificent, supremely capricious, and concerto-sized violin solos of the "com?panion" episode is peppered with directions to the soloist such as "loving," "angry," "sen?timental," "nagging," "flippant" or "hypocrit?ically languishing"--adjectives more often used to describe a person than a musical per?formance. In a letter to French novelist and music critic Romain Rolland, Strauss admitted having portrayed his wife in Ein Heldenleben.
Yet the essence of art always lies in the way it transcends the subject matter that provided the initial impulse. The question we must ask is how Strauss used autobiojjj graphic material to create his tone poem. M
Unlike the majority of Strauss' tone :fi poems, Ein Heldenleben was not based onl any particular literary work. Rather, it sought to express, in the composer's words, "a more general and free ideal of great and manly heroism." This followed logically _ from Strauss' previous tone poem, Don 3B Quixote, which, based on Cervantes, was a specific case of misguided heroism, "a crazy striving for false ideals." As Strauss pointed out, "Don Quixote is only fully and com?pletely comprehensible when put side by side with Ein Heldenleben."
The subject of Ein Heldenleben is, then, heroism in general (and not just a portrait-of Mr. and Mrs. Strauss). What exactly is ? meant by "heroism" here In the world of Romantic ideals which Strauss inherited, a hero is someone who confronts the whole world all by himself. The prototype of the ? Romantic hero, on whom Strauss modeled! his protagonist, is Goethe's Faust. Like Faust, the hero of Ein Heldenleben fights for his ideals; meets a woman; and works for the good of society. Unlike Faust, however, Strauss' hero ultimately withdraws from the world and finds fulfillment in an idyllic state

that has more to do with Rousseau than with Goethe.
Besides the literary and philosophical motifs reflected in the tone poem, there are '? some clear musical echoes as well. The most obvious ancestor of Ein Heldenleben is :
Beethoven's Eroica, which shares with Strauss'' work the key of E-flat Major. In addition, .] the portrayal of the adversaries (critics) owes-a great deal to Wagner's Die Meistersinger .' von Niirnberg, in which the real-life music i critic Hanslick was transformed into the vil-! lain Beckmesser. The parodistic episode in '] the Meistersinger Overture (the episode is in j E-flat Major, the key of Ein Heldenleben), with the sarcastic staccatos (short, separated j notes) in its woodwind parts, was probably : not far from Strauss' mind when he wrote the section of the adversaries. "j
Strauss was only thirty-four-years old i when he completed Ein Heldenleben. It was to remain the last work he called a "tone -
poem:" the two large-scale symphonic works he was to write later, Sinfonia domes? tica and Alpine Symphony, have the word "symphony" in their titles. Ein Heldenleben closes the great cycle of tone poems that had occupied Strauss for a whole decade; in this j work, he took stock of his achievements, looked back and summarized. Had Strauss died the following year (at thirty-five, like Mozart), we would see this work as the high point of his oeuvre, and the extensive self-quotations near the end (about which more later) would take on an even greater sym?bolic significance. :j
But Strauss lived on for another half-century, during which time he concentrated most of his energies on an impressive series of fourteen operas, including Salome, Elektra, and Der Rosenkavalier. Therefore,... Ein Heldenleben only closes one chapter in Strauss' life, though, no doubt, a very important one. '
Throughout the work, straightforward E-flat Major tonality alternates with tradi-z -tional tonality with a few unorthodox i, touches, and passages of rapidly changing, j sometimes completely disappearing, key gcenters. The first theme, firmly in E-flat Major, has the irregularity of emphasizing minor and major sevenths in a way no clas: sical composer would have done. The music,j of the adversaries, on the other hand, congUSi tains eleven of the twelve tones in a theme i whose tonality is anybody's guess.1 The vio?lin solo, representing Pauline or the "eternal feminine," again drifts in and out of tonal stability. One of the most stable areas is the tender love scene that follows the great vio?lin solo; another is the peaceful song of the hero retired from the world. In stark con?trast to these, the battle scene--which Romain Rolland called the best battle music in the entire literature--is full of abrupt key, -s
Strauss had written a similarly pre-twclve-tone melody in the fugue of Also sprach Zarathustm.
.changes. The violent orchestral sounds of this section show how the extent to which Strauss expanded the vocabulary of nine?teenth-century orchestral music in his desire to offer the most complete panorama of human emotions and characters.
MMP11 a true compositional tour de force, Strauss managed to combine the program of his tone poem with traditional sonata form (see chart). According to this scheme, the section about the hero's peaceful deeds comes as the recapitulation after the battle scene, which represents the development. The recapitulation, however, is enlarged by an extensive new episode with a series of self-quotations, beginning with the great theme from Don Juan, followed by themes from A50 sprach Zarathustra, Death and Transfiguration, Don Quixote, and Macbeth, as well as the opera Guntram and the songs Befreit (Liberated) and Traum durch die Ddmmerung (Dreaming at Twilight). These references, sometimes simultaneous and sometimes successive, amount to a survey of the hero's (in this case, Strauss') past life, followed by a final outburst, after which the music settles into the peaceful pastoral mood of the coda.
It should come as no surprise that a work as innovative as Ein Heldenleben should sharply divide critical reaction. Strauss' music came in for more than its share of invectives ranging from "outra?geously hideous noise" to Hundeleben (A Dog's Life). Some of the best musicians of the time, however, immediately recognized the importance of the work. After the Paris premiere, Claude Debussy wrote a review in which he referred to Strauss as "close to being a genius." And there was a twenty-year-old conservatory student in Budapest named Bela Bartok, whose life received new meaning from the revelations of Also sprach Zarathustra and Ein Heldenleben. Bartok made Ein Heldenleben into something of a signature piece, performing it in his own
piano arrangement (which he, to our great loss, never wrote down) to great acclaim in Budapest and Vienna. In 1904, he wrote his first major orchestral work, Kossuth, about a Hungarian hero. This piece brings in j Kossuth's wife and contains a major battle scene, but has a tragic, rather than idyllic ending. Bartok's Straussian fever eventually cooled off, but he, and other composers of his generation, proceeded further--in their many different ways--along the path of musical innovation that Strauss himself eventually abandoned.
iuseppe Sinopoli was born in Venice in 1946. After receiving a doctorate in medicine and arche?ology, he began his musical career . as a composer. He studied with Hans Swarowsky in Vienna and premiered as a conductor in 1976 with the opera Aida, also in Vienna. His opera, Lou Salome, pre?miered at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich, 1981.
Maestro Sinopoli is internationally rec?ognized for his work in new productions
and performances at opera houses in Vienna, London, New York, Milan, Florence, Dresden, Bayreuth, Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich, and concerts, recordings, and inter?national tours with orchestras such as the Dresden Staatskapelle,
Vienna, Berlin, and New York Philharmonics,: Chicago and Boston Symphony Orchestras, j the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, and the j Philharmonia Orchestra London. jk '
Maestro Sinopoli acted as the Chief Conductor of the Orchestra dell'Accademia ; Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, Roma. In 1984, he began his work with the Philharmonia
Orchestra London as the Principal Conductor, and became the orchestra's ; Music Director in 1987. In 1992 he was appointed Chief Conductor of the Dresden Staatskapelle. Since 1985, Giuseppe Sinopoli has been a frequent guest of the Bayreuth Festival where he returned to conduct the new "Ring" during the 2000 summer seasonJ Recent projects include the new production of Die Frau ohne Schatten at the Vienna -' State Opera in December of 1999, Ariadne aufNaxos at La Scala in April 2000, and a i tour through Japan with the Vienna State : Opera in October 2000. Next season's pro.' jects will include new productions of '
Turandot, Der Rosenkavalier and Tristan und Isolde at La Scala, Milan.
Giuseppe Sinopoli has been recording for Deutsche Grammophon since 1981 and has received numerous awards, including the recent Cannes Classical Award for his Elektra (DGG) recording with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. He was exclusively contracted to Deutsche Grammophon from 1983 to 1994 and is now sharing his record?ing activities between DGG and Teldec. His latest recordings with the Dresden d
Staatskapelle include a complete Bruckner " cycle for DGG and a series of works from the New Viennese School (Berg, Schoenberg, Webern) as well as Strauss' Die Frau ohne Schatten for Teldec, and Strauss' Friedenstag for DGG in 1999. Apart from numerous " symphonic works, his next opera recordings ' include Ariadne aufNaxos for DGG during the 20002001 season and Der Rosenkavalier in September of 2001 for Teldec.

ne of the oldest and most highly regarded orchestras in the world, the Dresden Staatskapelle, under the leadership of Music Director Giuseppe Sinopoli, carries a tra?dition as proud as that of Dresden itself, one of the great cultural centers of Europe. In 1998, the orchestra celebrated its 450th anniversary with tours in Europe and Japan as well as North and South America. This ? .. distinguished ensemble is currently in the 1 midst of a coast-to-coast tour of the US including performances in San Francisco, Washington, DC, Ann Arbor, and New York City.
In addition to the orchestra's legacy, j internationally renowned music directors' and soloists have helped characterize the distinctive sound and spirit of today's ?-? Dresden Staatskapelle. Among its great ?' leaders have been Johann Walter, Heinrich Schiitz, Johann Adolf Hasse, Carl Maria von Weber, Richard Wagner and Ernst von Schuch. In the twentieth century, the list included such distinguished names as Fritz Reiner, Fritz Busch, Karl Bohm, Joseph Keilberth, Rudolf Kempe, Franz Konwitschny, Otmar Suitner, Kurt Sanderling and Herbert Blomstedt. Giuseppe Sinopoli has been Chief Conductor since 1992; Sir Colin Davis is Conductor Laureate.
Composers who have had works pre?miered by the Dresden Staatskapelle, or dedicated works to it, include such preemia nent names as Vivaldi, Wagner, Schumann,-Liszt, Strauss, Hindemith, Weill, Blacher, and, more recently, Zimmermann, Matthus, Rihm and Kancheli. Additionally, many composers have appeared with the orches?tra, namely Mozart, Paganini, Mendelssohn, Berlioz, Brahms, Stravinsky, Lutoslawski and Henze. Guest conductors include such notable figures as Herbert von Karajan, Carlos Kleiber, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Eugene Jocum, Seiji Ozawa, James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Lorin Maazel, Bernard Haitink
and Andre Previn.
Each season, the Dresden Staatskapelle plays about fifty symphonic and chamber music concerts at its famed hall, the Semperoper. In addition to the orchestra's North American tour in the 20002001 sea?son, they will travel to China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, Austria, Belgium, France, Great Britain, Greece, Italy, the Netherlands and Spain, and will participate in the Vienna and Berlin "Festwochen" as well as the If---Beethoven Festival in Bonn. ' ? -
Founded in 1548 as an ensemble of : court choristers, the Dresden Staatskapelle originally provided music for such functions as banquets, church services, court festivals, masked balls, weddings and funeral proces?sions. Its first authenticated concert tour occurred in 1575 with a visit to the Reichstag in Regensburg. In the seventeenth; century, the orchestra's performances and touring activities under the leadership of ? Heinrich Schiitz, one of the leading com; posers of his time, brought the ensemble ? fame throughout Europe. Under Schiitz's . baton, the orchestra introduced the first German opera, his own Dafne, beginning a long tradition of operatic premieres that includes more Wagner and Strauss operas than any other ensemble. It was during this century that the city of Dresden was also . ; developing into an increasingly important f literary, musical and visual arts center. ,
By the early eighteenth century, the! ... Dresden Staatskapelle was clearly the conti?nent's foremost ensemble. Beethoven noted, "It is generally said that the orchestra in Dresden is the best in Europe," while Jean ? Jacques Rousseau considered the group to ' be "the most complete and best ordered : ensemble" of the day. During the end of that jp;. century, the orchestra began presenting public concerts in Dresden, in addition to
those at court. Regular subscription concerts ;pvere introduced in 1856, alongside charity r ]M performances and occasional performances'
by virtuoso instrumentalists. The nineteenth century was also noted for the orchestra's presentation of new operas by Richard Wagner, who was Music Director from 1843-1849, and led the premieres of K;eizi Der Fliegende Hollander and Tatwhauser. Later, under the baton of Ernst von Schuch, the orchestra enjoyed a close association with Richard Strauss and gave the first per-, formances of nine of his operas: Salome, S Elektra, Der Rosenkavalier, Feuersnot, M Arabella, Die schweigsame Fran, Intermezzo Die dgyptische Helena and Daphne. As a ?" result of this close relationship, the orches?tra is known to this day as the "Strauss" , orchestra. Ja
The Dresden Staatskapelle's extensive jj discography reflects the orchestra's varied ' repertoire of traditional and contemporary composers, and features performances with leading conductors of the twentieth century. Under Giuseppe Sinopoli, the orchestra has recently recorded a cycle of nearly twenty-j five works of the "Vienna School" as well as works by Haydn, Beethoven, Bruckner, Liszt, Mahler, Wagner, Weber, Dvorak and Strauss, including Die Frau ohm Schatten, Joseph Legende, Friedenstag and Ariadne aufNaxos. In future seasons, Maestro Sinopoli will continue his Strauss recordings with Der 'j-'?-' Rosenkavalier and Die Liebe der Danae.
The Dresdner Bank has sponsored the orchestra's major artistic projects under the leadership of Giuseppe Sinopoli since 1994V

String Quartet in A Major, Op. 20,
Born March 31, 1732 in Rohrau, Ldriei
Austria Died May 31,1809 in Vienna
Early in Haydn's career, it was the popularity of his string quartets rather than the sym?phonies that spread his fame across Europe. Although the terms of his employment at the Esterhaza court expressly forbade the dissem?ination of his compositions without permis?sion from his patron, Haydn's early quartets were nevertheless published in Paris, London, and Amsterdam, and were tremendously popular. Although Haydn did not invent the string quartet genre (it seems to have arisen ?? from a combination of German folk genres ' and the Italian divertimento earlier in the . . j eighteenth century), he single-handedly raised it to an unprecedented level of artistry, popularizing the genre that would become the fundament of chamber music composi?tion for the next 150 years.
The six quartets that comprise Op. 20 were composed in 1772 and dedicated to Nikolaus Zmeskall von Domanovecz, a jjf Hungarian diplomat and lover of chamber music. They are known collectively as the "Sun" quartets, for no other reason than that one of the first published editions (from Hummel in Amsterdam) included a drawing of a rising sun on the cover. But they are also known as Die Grossen Quartette (The Great Quartets), since they are Haydn's first truly mature works in the genre. His earlier essays V in quartet writing--the Op. 9 and Op. 17 quartets--show the influence of an essential-i ly symphonic conception (Haydn had com?pleted at least forty symphonies before j attempting his first quartets). They retain the i simplicity and refinement of the Rococo -$jj orchestral tradition. But it is in Op. 20 and subsequent sets that Haydn began to think of the quartet in its own terms, standardiz-
ing the four-movement format, allowing ' greater independence for the cello and viola . parts, and infusing the genre with the Sturm und Drang passion that also enlivens his j middle-period symphonies.
Part of the influence of Sturm und Drang on music was a tendency toward -? minor keys, a return to "learned" polyphony j or Gelehrte stil, and a deepening of expres?sive content. This is expressly true of Op. 20, i with two of the six quartets in minor keys, .: and two more with slow movements in tonic minor. Three of the quartets (includ?ing No. 6) conclude with elaborate fugues.
The sixth and last quartet in the set is also known specifically as the "Sun" Quartet. , Melvin Berger claims that, in addition to the 1 cover design, this quartet earns the nick?name through its "cheery warmth and light-hearted grace." Typical of Haydn's composii tions from this period, the work is front] weighted; the first two movements take up ' almost three quarters of the entire quartet's i length, while the last two are rather brief. :_J
The triple meter of the light-hearted eg first movement implies a dance, but it :$) moves to the dominant minor (rather than i the expected major key) for the second j
theme. Though the exposition ends in J8 major, the free alternation of modes, and the affective nervousness it implies, is a clear J hallmark of Sturm und Drang. '"?"
In the slow movement, the first violin "sings" a two-part aria form with gentle accompaniment from the other strings. Haydn had been heavily involved with the opera theatre at Esterhaza in the years leading up to the composition of this quartet, and it is ; conceivable that he was thinking in operatic terms for this movement. The score direction to play mezza voce (half-voice) throughout adds a degree of emotional restraint.
The ensuing "Menuetto" and trio return to sprightly triple-time rhythms. The second violin drops out for the trio (resulting in a true trio in texture as well as form), and the :
other three instruments play only on their lowest strings, creating a rich, darker tone color. For the "Finale," Haydn writes a com?plex and imaginative three-subject fugue that concludes with a rousing unison state?ment of the first theme.
String Quartet No. 4
Charles Wuorinen ';
Born June 9, 1938 in New York 1
I composed my fourth string quartet during" 1999, for the Brentano Quartet, with whom I had had previous happy associations; the piece was commissioned by a consortium of chamber music presenters, including the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Chamber Music Northwest, El Paso Chamber Music Festival, and the Chamber Music Society of Detroit. At somewhat over twenty! minutes playing time, the quartet's single ? movement necessarily involves a wide variety of attitudes, gestures, textures, and speeds. But overall one can detect a directed progress from slower to faster, from sparer to denser-although with many detours--and finally to a kind of repose. Stasis is not victorious, m however, for the work ends (some might say)S with the musical analogue of a question. ??

Three Pieces
Igor Stravinsky
Born June 17, 1882 in Oranienbaum,
near St. Petersburg, Russia Died April 6,1971 in New York
Stravinsky's Three Pieces for string quartet are one of the first manifestations of the composer's tendency toward a lean, ascetic style, a trend that would be expressed more fully in the neoclassical works of the 1920s
and '30s. But the Three Pieces are relatively early works, dating from the late spring of 1914, during the aftermath of the premiere of Rite of Spring.
In these pieces, Stravinsky ignored the" whole Classical-Romantic quartet tradition, avoiding traditional tempo indications (with their subtle inferences of style) by using simple metronome markings instead. It was only when he orchestrated the pieces fifteen years later that he gave them descriptive J titles--"Danse," "Excentrique," and 1
"Cantique"--though these qualities were evident even before the titles were added. 1 The brief first piece is about mechanical repetition. The leader repeats a simple tune with a four-note range over an ostinato and a drone, with scale fragments from the sec?ond violin. Each instrument employs a dif?ferent method of tone production, creating four individual and distinct characters. But the texture avoids true chamberistic inter?play; the instruments are simply playing simultaneously. If this is indeed a dance, as the composer's later title suggests, then the asymmetric rhythms and irregular accents make it a decidedly lopsided one.
Paul Griffiths describes the second piece as "a portrait of a clown, jumping from one bizarre posture to another." Stravinsky was inspired in this work by the antics of the clown Little Tick, whom he had seen perform in London. More directly connotative than the other two pieces, this,-work mimics a wide range of clown-like I expressions, with cartoon notions of slap-,1 stick and visual humor.
The final piece is solemn and liturgical, as the four players move homophonically through harmonizations of a chant-like j. melody. Stravinsky described it as "choral and religious in character," foreshadowing in its solemnity the composer's later choral works such as the Pater noster and passages , from the Mass. -?if
String Quartet in C Major, K. 465
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
When Mozart heard Haydn's Op. 33 quar?tets for the first time, it was (according to Alfred Einstein) one of the most profound experiences of his musical life. Haydn claimed that his Op. 33 quartets, composed almost ten years after the Op. 20 set, were written in "an entirely new and special man4 ner." Inspired by this model, Mozart com?posed three quartets in late 1782 and early 1783, and three more in 1784-85, dedicating the complete set of six to Haydn with the observation, "I have learned from Haydn , ,.-.. how to write quartets." This act of pure ' homage was unusual for Mozart, who almost never wrote such a substantial opus without any commission or guaranteed occasion for public performance. What's more, he relinquished all rights for the works to the dedicatee. Yet for all his indebtedness to Haydn, it is clear that Mozart's quartet writing in turn influenced Haydn's later compositions in the genre, j Mozart's quartets and Haydn's Op. 33 are coequal contributors to the development of the string quartet during the early 1780s.: While composing chamber music seems to ; have come relatively easy to Haydn, Mozart spent more effort on these quartets than he did on just about any other composition. I They presented a tremendous challenge to him, as evidenced in the many corrections, 1 changes, and alterations he made to the I manuscript. fii
After completing the last of the set-4Rl the String Quartet in C Major, K. 465--in : January 1785, Mozart organized a perfor?mance of all six quartets for Haydn, spread ' ? over two evenings (January 15 and February 12, 1785). Mozart and his father, Leopold, both played in the ensemble. After hearing these works, Haydn remarked to Leopold
Mozart: "Before God and as an honest man, I tell you that your son is the greatest com?poser known to me either in person or by name."
This C-Major quartet is the only string quartet Mozart wrote with a slow introduc?tion, one of the more obvious references to his mentor's compositional style. It is this introduction that introduces the dissonance from which the work as a whole gets its nickname, "Dissonance": an A-flat in the ? ... viola clashing with an A-natural in the first violin. So peculiar was this effect that many thought it was perhaps a misprint in the published edition, or that the composer himself had made an error, though it is clear from the documentary evidence that Mozart knew exactly what he was doing, and Haydn had, after all, praised the compositional technique behind it. Maynard Solomon writes of this passage, "Without knowing precisely where we are, we know that we are in an alien universe." Yet Charles Rosen points out that this introduction cleverly "f establishes the tonic C-Major without ever ' once stating it: "The opening of a work by Mozart is always solidly based, no matter how ambiguous and disturbing its expressive significance." J
The main effect of the slow introduc-H tion is to throw into high relief the buoyan?cy and light-heartedness of the remainder of., the movement, which is remarkably free fi from dissonance. Still, in true Haydn-esque style, there is continuity in the contrast: the repeated-note accompaniment from the slow introduction is carried over into the bubbling main theme of the "Allegro."
The intimate second movement is a slow-movement sonata form (without a development section) in which the transi?tion between themes is effected by a sublime duet between cello and first violin. At sever?al points in this contrapuntal movement Mozart omitted imitative entries for the first violin and viola in the score, suggesting to
some critics that the composer had made a mistake there, too. Modern performances often "fill in" the missing parts to create the complete imitative texture, something Mozart may have expected his players to do intuitively.
The orchestral minuet that follows dis?plays contrasts of line, dynamics, articula?tion, and texture, with a somber and yearn?ing trio in the minor mode. The rondo finale, "Allegro," abounds with wit and humor. The unexpected pauses, dramatic shifts in temperament, false reprises, and unusual harmonic excursions, all within the bounds of good-natured felicity, are in overt homage to Haydn, and would have pleased him greatly.
Program notes by Luke Howard.
? ince its inception in 1992, the Brentano String Quartet has been singled out for their technical bril?liance, musical insight and stylistic elegance. Within a year's time, the Brentano String Quartet claimed the distinction of being named to three major awards, win?ning the first Cleveland Quartet Award, the
1995 Naumburg Chamber Music Award and the tenth Annual Martin E. Segal Award. For their first appearance in Great Britain at Wigmore Hall, the Brentano was awarded the Royal Philharmonic Society Music Award for the most outstanding chamber music debut for 1997.
The Quartet became the first quartet-in-residence at Princeton University in 1999, and since 1995 they have been the quartet-in-residence at New York University. In 1995 they were chosen by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center to participate in the inaugural season of Chamber Music Society Two--a program designed for out-standing emerging artists and chamber S musicians. Additionally, beginning in the year 2000, the Brentano String Quartet became the quartet-in-residence at 1
Wigmore Hall in London. ?'J
The Brentano String Quartet has appeared with pianist Mitsuko Uchida at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, at the Library of Congress, and at Lincoln Center, and has collaborated with Jessye Norman in her 1998 Carnegie Hall recital.

ubbard Street Dance Chicago
(HSDC) was founded in 1977 by veteran dancer and choreogra; pher Lou Conte. Today, under the leadership of Artistic Director Jim Vincent, twenty culturally diverse dancers represent Hubbard Street Dance Chicago throughout the world, per?forming annually for more than 100,000 people.
During its twenty-three-year history, HSDC has emerged as an innovative force in contemporary dance, combining theatri?cal jazz, modern and classical ballet tech?nique to create an unparalleled artistic style. The company and its distinctive repertoire serve as a living archive for significant choreographic works by world-class choreo?graphers Nacho Duato, Daniel Ezralow, Jiri Kylian, Kevin O'Day, Margo Sappington and Twyla Tharp. In addition, the company reg?ularly collaborates with emerging choreog?raphers on new dance works. ' The company performs in downtown Chicago and the metropolitan area and also tours extensively throughout the year. The company has appeared in forty-two states and fifteen countries at celebrated dance venues including the American Dance Festival, DanceAspen, the Holland Dance Festival, Jacob's Pillow, The Joyce Theater, the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival and' the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds (Italy).
From its inception, HSDC has captured; public attention and garnered local, national and international critical acclaim. With four; public television specials, including two that! aired nationally, HSDC has enlightened and " entertained audiences of all backgrounds. After viewing the company's television debut in 1981, Fred Astaire called the per, formance "some of the greatest dancing I'y seen in years." i
In March 1998, Hubbard Street Dance ' Chicago merged with the Lou Conte Dance Studio (LCDS) and relocated to a perma?nent facility in Chicago's West Loop Gate
neighborhood. HSDC and the LCDS nowv serve as one institution dedicated to perfor?mance, dance training and community edu?cation. One of the most comprehensive dance centers in the US, this facility houses five dance studios equipped with state-of-the-art floors and audio systems, including two stage-sized spaces; production shops for building and maintaining sets and cosVl' tumes; storage space for the company's ' advanced sound and lighting systems; a sound mixing studio; and administrative offices and meeting rooms.
Hubbard Street 2, HSDC's young pro?fessional company (formerly known as Hubbard Street Trainee Ensemble), is the ?''fk backbone of HSDC's community education M program. Formed in 1997, the ensemble performs in schools, community centers and park districts, as well as in small professionM al venues, reaching 23,000 people annually. g HSDC's team of dance educators works "
closely with about twenty classrooms each year on a multi-layered program that exposIt es students to dance, trains teachers to inteIj grate dance and movement into the curricum lum, and offers free admission to company E: performances. m
The Lou Conte Dance Studio offers m more than sixty classes per week to adults! and teens in ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip-'; hop, funk and dance fitness. Named "Best; Dance Class for Adults" by Chicago maga-rJ zine, the Lou Conte Dance Studio offers ; various levels of classes for dancers from. ? beginners to professionals. ' jj
August 1, 2000 marked a major turning point in the life of HSDC as Conte retired as . artistic director and respected dancer, H teacher, ballet master and choreographer Jim Vincent became the new artistic director. Vincent's relationships with Kylian, DuatoS and other distinguished choreographers will ? continue to build on HSDC's illustrious his?tory as a contemporary repertory company. Vincent will continue to work with both renowned and emerging choreographers
from around the world to create a distinct body of works for the company.
In 1977, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago ;was launched to fill a community need. ; Today it stands as one of the most renowned dance companies in America, ' dedicated to performance, dance training and community education, while serving as an emblem of Chicago's international cul?tural profile.
This weekend's performances mark Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's third and fourth appearances under UMS auspices.
Jim Vincent (Artistic Director) joins HSDC following an extensive career as a dancer, teacher, ballet master and choreographer. Vincent's dance training began at the age of &five and continued through his childhood
f-Ballets in New Jersey. He studied on scholar?ship at the Washington School of Ballet in Washington, DC, Harkness House of Ballet in New York City and North Carolina School of the Arts at University of North Carolina. Vincent's distinguished career as a professional dancer includes a twelve-year tenure with Jiri Kylian's Nederlands Dans .. Theater, a guest appearance with Lar ?f?. Lubovitch and two years with Nacho j&Sr Duato's Compania Nacional de Danza in K$ffi.Spain. As a dancer, he worked with many H choreographers, including Kylian, Duato, William Forsythe, Mats Ek, Hans van Manen, Christopher Bruce, Ohad Naharin ; and Lar Lubovitch.
; Vincent has served as ballet master for '"Nederlands Dans Theater II, Compania . Nacional de Danza and Opera National de ?' Lyon, where he rehearsed repertory by
Jpjf Forsythe, Ek, George Balanchine, Angelin : ip Prejlocaj and Bill T. Jones. He has restaged ] 'choreographies for Duato, including Jardi '?'
Tancat, Synaphai and Na Floresta, and for Kylian, including Return to the Strange Land and Stamping Ground. Vincent has choreo?graphed a number of works for Nederlands Dans Theater I and II, Quebec's Bande a Part and Switzerland's Stadt Theater Bern. His teaching experience includes Holland's Royal Conservatory of the Hague, Australia's Victorian College of Art, Compania Nacional de Danza and Opera National de Lyon. He served as assistant artistic director of Compania Nacional de Danza from 1990-94.
In October 1997, Vincent joined the creative team of Disneyland Paris as a con?cept designer and show director.

Lou Conte (Founder), after a performing career including Broadway musicals, estab?lished the Lou Conte Dance Studio in Chicago in 1972. In 1977, he founded what is now Hubbard Street Dance Chicago with four dancers performing at senior citizens' homes in Chicago. Originally the company's sole choreographer, he developed relation?ships with world-renowned choreographers as the company began to grow, adding bod?ies of work by a variety of artists. These rela?tionships transformed HSDC into the inter?nationally acclaimed repertoire company it is today. In the 1980s, Conte brought in several works by Lynne Taylor-Corbett, Margo Sappington and Daniel Ezralow. He contin?ued to build HSDC's repertoire by forging a key partnership with Twyla Tharp in the 1990s, acquiring seven of her works, includ?ing an original work for the company. Conte further expanded the company's repertoire to include European choreographers Jiri Kylian, Nacho Duato, and most recently, Ohad Naharin, whose Minus 16 received its US premiere by HSDC in October 2000. These long-term relationships along with Conte's participation in selecting the compa?ny's new artistic director have paved the way for HSDC's future. Through his twenty-three years as the company's artistic director, Conte has received numerous awards, including the Chicago Dance Coalition's inaugural Ruth Page Artistic Achievement Award in 1986, the Sidney R. Yates Arts Advocacy Award in 1995 and the Chicagoan of the Year award from Chicago magazine in 1999. He has been credited by many for helping raise Chicago's international cultural profile and for creating a climate for dance in the city, where the art form now thrives.

Prelude and Fugue in D Major,
BWV 532 .
Johann Sebastian Bach . Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach; Gefntdh ' Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
Arranged by Ferruccio Busoni
Born April 1, 1866 in Empoli, near Florence,
Italy Died July 27, 1924 in Berlin
The Prelude and Fugue in D Major (which exists in two versions) shows the "unruly" side of Bach's genius: a prelude full of sur?prising turns is followed by a fugue on a highly unorthodox theme. Influenced by the similarly extravagant compositions of Dietrich Buxtehude and others of the north German organ school, it dates from Bach's early twenties, when the composer served as organist at the court of Weimar. The prelude consists of several distinct sections, separat?ed by rests and introducing radically differ?ent types of textures: scales and arpeggios .-, followed by harmony-driven passages. Regular sequential chains of chords alter?nate with unexpected dissonances, especially at the end of the prelude. There is a certain improvisatory character to the piece, which . continues in the fugue. The fugue theme is what they call a Spielthema in German: a j "play-theme," generated more by the organ-1 ist's fingers than by any rigorous composi' tional design. The theme is all kinetic energy with strong harmonic implications. Although Bach applied the usual rules of fugue-writing to this unusual material (imH tative entries, countersubject, modulations, etc.), the end result often doesn't sound like a fugue at all, or at least not like a mature ? Leipzig work such as the "St. Anne" (BWV 552). Of the startling final bars of BWV 532, Peter Williams writes in his three-volume 1 book The Organ Music of]. S. Bach fi
(Cambridge University Press, 1980): "No I other fugue in the literature...ends so sue1
cinctly, with such an exclamation."
Ferruccio Busoni, the highly original composer and prodigious pianist, was intro?duced to Bach's music as a child, and his deep love for the Thomaskantor endured his entire life. In the preface of his piano tran?scriptions of Bach's organ works, Busoni explained that he was motivated by the desire "to interest a larger section of the public in these compositions which are so rich in art, feeling and fantasy...."
Sonata in b minor
Franz Liszt
Born October 22, 1811 in Doborjdn, Hungary
(now Raiding, Austria) Died July 31, 1886 in Bayreuth, Germany
Among the great composers of the nine?teenth century, few were subject to such antagonistic impulses as Franz Liszt. Quite possibly the greatest virtuoso pianist of the century, Liszt also aspired to be a revolul$g tionary composer and, if that were not " enough, was compelled by his religious feel?ings to take holy orders and become an abbe (a priest without actual pastoral duties at a church). A native of Hungary who identified strongly with that country even though he did not speak its language, he remained a ,? lifelong wanderer, sojourning at various times in Paris, Geneva, Weimar, Rome, and Budapest, at home everywhere and ----nowhere.
In his monumental Sonata in b minor,, Liszt managed to reconcile many of these I conflicting tendencies and create a work J that was revolutionary in design, virtuosicfj in execution, and deeply spiritual in con$ tent. As in his cycle of symphonic poems written around the same time, Liszt united all the different characters of the multia movement sonata or symphonic form in aS single movement of extended proportions. The recurrence of a number of fundamental
themes guaranteed organic unity while the contrasting tempos and characters provided diversity.
The Sonata opens hesitatingly, with a slow descending scale that will become one of the recurrent elements throughout the work. The heroic main theme soon follows; its brilliant development leads into a melody (a hymn-like tune accompanied by massive blocks of chords) marked grandioso. In the first of several dramatic shifts, the music turns from heroic to introspective and lyrical, yet the melodic material is the same as before (the difference is in tempo, dynamics, and accompaniment). These two fundamental characters continue to alter?nate, but each is continually enriched and developed with each new recurrence. On the dramatic side, we hear a set of brilliant vari?ations on the main theme, interrupted by the powerful grandioso motive. A doleful recitative calls into question the heroism of the entire passage, and the music gradually calms down to an Andante sostenuto with an aria-like new theme. The mood, however, soon becomes more passionate, and the heroic theme returns in yet another incar?nation, as a fugue, with a countersubject consisting of rapid, short notes that give it a slightly satirical edge. This section, which incorporates the descending scales of the introduction, leads to a re-statement of the grandioso motive, even more powerful than before. At the end of a breath-taking stretta (final section in a faster tempo), the grandioso theme returns yet another time, as the emotional high point of the entire work. But the final word belongs to the lyrical-introspective character in the drama: the Andante sostenuto aria is recalled, followed by an extremely quiet restatement of the main theme, as if to suggest that the conflict is over. The descending scales from the opening are heard again, followed by a few ethereal chords. After what seemed like a voyage through a whole pianistic and emo;
tional universe, the last note is a single, barely audible, short 'B' in the extreme low register of the piano.
Liszt dedicated his sonata to Robert Schumann, who many years earlier had ded?icated his Fantasy in C Major (Op. 17) to Liszt. By the time of this belated response, the relations of the two men had cooled, and the dedication, as one commentator put it, "was received with embarrassment." Yet neither dedication was a coincidence: both works being crucially important in the respective composers' oeuvres, it is under?standable that they should have been chosen to honor an esteemed colleague. ? v.
Sonata No. 4 in c minor. Op. 29 '
Sergei Prokofiev
Born April 27, 1891 in Sontsovka, near
Ekaterinoslav, Ukraine Died March 5, 1953 in Nikolina Gora, neard
On October 25, 1917, the Bolshevik Revolution broke out in Petrograd (St. Petersburg). Sergei Prokofiev was at the resort town of Kislovodsk in the Caucasus Mountains, more than a thousand miles away. Returning to the capital was out of the question, and Prokofiev had to stay in Kislovodsk for half a year. He used this enforced isolation to write music, and com?posed his Piano Sonata No. 3 and Sonata No. 4 as well as his cantata Seven, They Were Seven during these "months that shook the world."
Both sonatas bear the subtitle "From Old Notebooks." Prokofiev had some of his childhood compositions with him in Kislovodsk, and set out to rework his juve?nilia in a way that would reflect how far he had come in the meantime as a composer. (By 1917, he had finished his Symphony No. 1, First Violin Concerto, the first two piano concertos, and the Scythian Suite, to name
just major works.)
The "reworking," in the case of Sonata No. 4, meant retouching the harmony and the technical aspects of the piano idiom. The style is eminently melodic and tradi?tional (Prokofiev was never going to be so close to Schumann and Brahms again!), although there is no shortage of sharply rhythmical and harmonically "spicy" moments in a typical Prokofievian vein. JrProkofiev's Russian biographer Israel ' Nestyev perceived a "narrative" character in the first movement ("Allegro molto sostenu-to"), perhaps because its melodies don't push forward but rather circle around the same few pitches. The second movement ("Andante assai") was adapted from a youthful symphony that Prokofiev had writ-, ten in 1908, at the age of seventeen. The movement opens with a melody Nestyev1 characterizes as "severe and stately;" this ,] theme is developed in a highly complex way, with virtuoso runs and arpeggios assuming the role of contrapuntal voices in a poly-si phonic texture. A more lyrical second ? melody appears; at the end of the move-.M ment, it is heard simultaneously with the j first theme.
The last movement bears the unusual marking Allegro con brio, ma non leggiero. , Nestyev writes: "The impetuous character of! the rhythm and the ebullient, sharply accented melody, with its accentuated disso-' nance, evoke images of a merry and vigor?ous game." Yet it is not supposed to be legj giero (light)! Despite the obvious references j to dances and marches and a general mood j of relaxation, there is an element of seriousness in this game--something Prokofiev didn't want us to forget. -s ? ?
St. Francis of Assisi: The Sermon to the Birds (Legend No. 1)
Mephisto Waltz, No. 1
Franz Liszt '
It is hard to say what attracted Liszt more:, . the Saints or the Devil (this is just another'!, of the many fascinating paradoxes that char?acterized this exceptional man). He did pay tribute to both, on numerous occasions, in his works from about 1860 on. 1861 was the year Liszt withdrew from his position as Kapellmeister at the court of Weimar. He I moved to Rome in order to help his comi panion, the Princess Carolyne von Sayn' -?; Wittgenstein obtain a divorce from the Pope . so he could marry her--an ordeal that took several years and was ultimately unsuccess?ful. Liszt drifted away from the Princess and eventually took holy orders. But his preoc?cupation with religious matters, of course, ? dated from much earlier times. Among his ?, earliest works we find Harmonies poetiques ? et religieuses for piano and the De profundis, an "instrumental psalm," for piano and orchestra. It goes without saying that the two saints named Francis--after whom he had been named--held a special place in his heart. He joined the angelic St. Francis of Assisi (who preached to the birds) and the li" fervent St. Francis of Paule (who walked on ? water) in his two Legends for piano, in which two aspects of his personality--his incom?; parable pianistic virtuosity and his spiritual: ity--were joined in a seamless union. -1
Liszt placed the text of the sermon to jJ the birds, as transmitted in the writings of St. Francis of Assisi, at the front of his score:
My dear little birds, you have to be thank?ful to God, your Creator, whom you must praise at all times and in all places: He has allowed you to fly everywhere and clothed : t? you in feathers. He has preserved you in Kg Noah's ark so your kind did not perish. ' ' ?
You owe him the element of air which he gave you. He bestowed the hills and dales for you to dwell in, tall trees where you can build your nests. You know not how to sew or weave, but He provides for you and your little ones. He loves you well, your Creator, since He lavishes so many good deeds on you. Do not commit the sin of ingratitude, then, my good little birds; be sure to praise God always.
A friar, who accompanied St. Francis, asserted that the birds opened their beaks and flapped their wings in appreciation, before flying off East, West, North and South to spread the words of the Saint.
The virtuosic figurations in the highest registers of the piano, with which the piece begins, are without a doubt the most effec?tive evocations of birdsong before Olivier Messiaen (the other great composer to give St. Francis a musical identity). The bird concert is followed by the Saint's address ini an unaccompanied recitative which uses a . theme from Liszt's choral setting of St. i Francis' canticle to the sun (1862, later 1 revised). After a musical symbol of the sign of the cross, a hymn-like melody develops which, together with the recurring motifs for birds, sermon and cross, summarizes the peaceful and comforting tableau.
After the Saint, the Devil. Following a long-standing medieval tradition, Liszt often associated negative spiritual forces with dance movements: it is enough to think of Totentanz and such late piano works as Csdrdds macabre and Csdrdds obstine to realize that Liszt's favorite way of visualizing the Devil was as a dancing mas?ter (to say nothing of his later Mephisto Waltzes, Nos. 2-4).
Of all the incarnations of the Devil in Western literature, Mephistopheles of the Faust legend is by far the most powerful. Mephistopheles offers a pact to Faust, an old scholar who has spent his entire life among books yet feels that he has learned nothing. ?MM --------
Mephistopheles shows Faust limitless possi?bilities for self-realization, only to take his soul as payment. The most famous literary treatment of this old legend is Johann Wolfgang Goethe's monumental dramatic poem. Although Liszt based a grandiose three-movement symphony on Goethe's Faust, we know that in his heart he pre?ferred the version by Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850), a poet who used to occupy a respectable seat in the German literary pan?theon but who doesn't seem to be read very much any more.
Lenau's Romantic generation was not comfortable with Goethe's Olympian opti?mism. In the second part of his drama, Faust had, after all, reached happiness through 8_ working for the good of his fellow humans; and even the pact with the Devil is over?turned in the end as his soul moves on to the highest spiritual realms, drawn by the "eter?nal feminine." Such a happy ending was unacceptable to Lenau, the deeply troubled son of a Hungarian aristocrat, who had wan?dered aimlessly through America and who would end his days in an insane asylum. :i Lenau's Faust, written in 1836, is an entirely negative take on the legend. As one commen?tator has put it, this "Faust has signed away his soul without knowing for what.... He is never shown obtaining truth or even pursu?ing it." He goes wherever the Devil takes him and follows his orders, yet he never seems to derive any kind of benefit from his actions. In the end, he commits suicide.
One of the scenes in Lenau's Faust takes place at a wedding in a little village tavern.1 Mephistopheles and Faust enter; Faust notices a dark-eyed peasant girl and starts dancing with her to the sound of Mephisto's fiddle. At the end of the dance, he takes the girl out of the inn, out of the village, to the
1 The music Liszt wrote for this scene also exists in an orches?tral version, as the second of Two Episodes from Lettaus Faust. The orchestral version, written in 1860, slightly predates the present transcription for piano.
forest where they listen to the song of the nightingale and find a hidden spot under the trees.
In other words, no immortal love, no transcendent Gretchen experience for this Faust!
The first thing Mephistopheles does when he takes the fiddle is to tune it. The open fifths, piled up on top of one another, Y result in sonorities that were radically new M: at the time. After the "tuning," an energetic theme emerges, followed by a second, more languid waltz melody, which becomes in pjturn whimsical, fiery, and--finally-Sag' unabashedly erotic. Near the end, we hear i: another birdsong imitation, but certainly gg not a heavenly one as in the St. Francis leg-gStend: the nightingale witnesses (and indeed, g symbolizes) the passionate love scene that , 0K concludes both Lenau's poem and Liszt's

he brilliant Slovenian pianist ' , Dubravka Tomsic gave her first public recital at age five and has since given more than 3500 perfor-, mances throughout Europe, .j J Australia, North America, Mexico, Russia, and Eastern Europe as well as parts of Africa and Asia. Ms. Tomsic began her studies at gjj Ljubljana Academy of Music and, at the age of twelve, moved to New York on the rec?ommendation of Claudio Arrau to study ;? . with Katherine Bacon at The Juilliard School. During her teenage years she fin-' ished high school and a Bachelor of Science with two special awards, and made her New York Philharmonic, Town Hall and Chicago recital debuts. She also gave a recital in L Carnegie Hall about which Artur Rubinstein wrote a glowing account in his memoirs My Many Years. Ms. Tomsic subsequently stud?ied privately with Artur Rubinstein for twoi
years. He considered her "a perfect and mar?velous pianist" and they remained friends throughout his life. M
Although people in many countries H consider Ms. Tomsic a pianist of legendary stature, it was only in 1989, after a hiatus of almost thirty years, that she was reintro-duced to American audiences with a tri?umphant performance on the gala opening night recital of the Newport Music Festival. Since then she has performed recitals on prestigious series in Cleveland, Atlanta, Seattle, Fort Worth, Los Angeles, St. Paul, Ma Portland (Oregon and Maine), and her suc?cessful debut recitals in Boston, Chicago, ., San Francisco, Baltimore, and Kansas City.iL. led to immediate reengagements. In April of 1999 she performed a highly acclaimed recital in New York's Alice Tully Hall under the auspices of the Newport Music Festival; her first New York recital in over forty years. Last season included recital debuts in Philadelphia and San Diego as well as return engagements in Seattle and her sixth recital in Boston's Symphony Hall presented by the Celebrity Series. She has performed recitals in major halls in London, Amsterdam.
Munich, Berlin, Prague, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Budapest, Madrid, and Rome. Ms. Tomsic has also become known for her' exceptional performances with orchestra. She has performed concerti with Vienna Symphony, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London, Czech Philharmonic, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, l'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, Munich Philharmonic, Berlin Symphony, Mozarteum Orchestra in Salzburg, Dresden Staatskapelle, Moscow State Orchestra, the Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide Symphonies in Australia, and the Boston, Atlanta, and Detroit Symphony Orchestras in the US. After her stellar debut performances of Beethoven's Emperor Concerto with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony in 1994, she was invited to play additional performances in Boston and New York's Carnegie Hall. The Boston Phoenix and The Boston Globe chose her subsequent "electrifying" performances with Boston i Symphony in 1998 as the best piano playing of the year. .
Dubravka Tomsic has performed at'J . prestigious international festivals in Dubrovnik, Vienna, Prague, Naples, ,-Dresden, Paris, Mexico City, Joliette, ??-n Newport (RI), and at Mostly Mozart in New' York City, and Tanglewood. More than sixty recordings released since 1987 have brought Ms. Tomsic worldwide acclaim. In addition to The Art of Dubravka Tomsic and a disc of favorite encores, she has recorded concerti by Brahms, Beethoven, Chopin, Grieg, Liszt, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Saens, Schumann, and Tchaikovsky, and recital works by Bach, Beethoven, Brahms, Chopin, Debussy, Mozart, Scarlatti and Srebotnjak. She can be heard on the Vox Classics, Stradivari Classics, Critic's Choice, Pilz International, Point Classics, Intersound Inc., Pentagon Classics, Intermusic S. A., and Koch International labels.
As a young pianist Ms. Tomsic won many awards and competitions and now
serves as juror for many international piano competitions, including her participation as juror for the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in May of 1997. She makes her home in Ljubljana, Slovenia and teaches at the Ljubljana Academy of Music.
Tonight's recital marks Dubravka Tomsk's UMS debut.

airakudakan, established in 1972 by Akaji Maro, has already pre?sented more than fifty works, in which Maro collects and recon-
__ structs the forgotten miburi-
teburi (human gestures) on the principle of tetnpu-tenshiki (being born in this world is a great talent itself). The company has per?formed internationally in twenty-five cities , in nine countries. Mr. Maro has always endeavored to train the younger generation' on his principle of ichinin-ippa (one dancer, one school). The company recently per?formed its new work Complete People at the Art Sphere in Tokyo. The company received the Japan Dance Critics Association's Award in 1974, 1987, 1996 and 1999. .---

Tonight's performance marks Dairakudakdn's, UMS debut. . '
n 1964, Akaji Maro founded a theatre' production called Jokyo Gekijo with Juro Kara under the leadership of Butoh choreographer Tatsumi
____Hijikata. In the 1960s, Mr. Maro was
acknowledged as an actor who melded Kara's
the privileged physi?cal theory" with his own spectacular acting method. In 1972, Akaji Maro established Dairakudakan and brought a spectacular performing method into their dance. The method--called Temputenshiki-
became controversial, not only in Japan but also overseas after Dairakudakan's atten?dance at such festivals as the Festival
d'Avignon and American Dance Festival in 1982. Mr. Maro crosses over many borders of different artistic worlds as a dancer, an actor and as a director.
Temputenshiki-Style Butoh .
By Way Of Introduction
by Akaji Maro ;
The essential notion of Temputenshiki-style Butoh is that the very act of being born into this world is a great talent unto itself.
After undergoing various trials and tribulations, people, both as individuals and ' the human race as a whole, cease to ques?tion. Instead, due to our false concepts of ' pragmatism, we become complacent with conventional behavior. Over a long period of time, such conventional behavior has all but snuffed out our ineffable, innate body language. Temputenshiki-style Butoh's main task is to reclaim, reassemble, and recom-pose this disowned body language. Modern conventional behavior, which is repressive pragmatic and purely muscular, fills me 1 with a sense of emptiness; whereas our 1 inner "body expression," on the verge of ? , extinction, fascinates me with its rich possi?bilities. Such multi-varied richness is evi?dent in the striking ways in which our Butoh style has been described: primeval, tribal, ;? awe-inspiring, obscene, vulgar, dynamic, erotic, and barbaric, among other things. Yet it has never been my intention to evoke such qualities from the outset. Rather, they are merely a natural byproduct.
Unfortunately, misplaced concepts of pragmatism and convention continue to ?? drive our innate body language to near destruction. Hopefully, Temputenshiki-style Butoh will continue to spread worldwide until the day comes that our lost body lan?guage is fully restored to us. A shift in peo?ples' thinking seems to have begun that will
one day make such a restoration possible. Temputenshiki's Sea-Dappled Horse: A Supernatural Tale is a drama formed by the combination of hundreds of such disowned "body gestures." In the course of our creative
process, we have given birth to assorted demons and spirits. This time around we have conjured forth the spirit of the Sea-dappled Horse with zestful enthusiasm. Now that he is loose, let us see what transpires.
From Backstreets to Broadway, Forty Years of Butoh Dance
by Bonnie Sue Stein
, nown for its shocking, contorted body gestures and dedication to taboo, Butoh dance rose out of Post-World War II Japan as a renegade performance form. Ankoku Butoh (dance of darkness) was termed by Japanese choreographer and dancer, Tatsumi Hijikata (1929-1986) in the mid-1960s to refer to his own brand of per?formance art. Butoh blossomed in Hijikata's world of messy artistic experimentation during a time in Japan of street demonstra?tions and civil unrest, reflecting a '60s counter-culture that was growing world?wide. Forty years later, some of the same issues are being confronted in today's Butoh: transformation, metamorphosis, and the search for meaning inside the limits of cor?poreal flesh.
In the '60s, Japan was quickly absorbing Western culture in all facets of daily life. Hijikata staged surrealistic Butoh perfor?mances, crammed with images symbolizing ancient and contemporary Japan: bicycles and carriages, the RCA dog, action painting and Beatles music. Performances took place in tight alternative spaces, often no bigger than a living room. Among Hijikata's 1960s collaborators were writers, painters, poets, and performing artists who would go on to
form their own groups into the 1970s and': '80s: Kazuo Ohno (now ninety-two-years old, still dancing and touring), Yoshito Ohno (son of Kazuo, and one of Hijikata's first partners), Ushio Amagatsu (who became a featured daredevil member of Dairakudakan before forming the most widely known Butoh company, Sankai Juku) Akira Kasai, (who has gained recent recog?nition for his solo work based in Rudolf Steiner's Eurythmics), Koichi Tamano (who has his own company in San Francisco, and continues to be a guest artist in Dairakudakan) and many, many others.
The vocabulary of Hijikata's movement style was rooted in pre-historic Japan, mixed with modern dance, and influenced largely by the avant-garde art forms of early twenti?eth century--Dadaism, German expression?ism (Mary Wigman), the cabaret of the J Folies Begere, and the violent literature of Antonin Artaud. Hijikata twisted these influences into unpredictable performances, shocking and confrontational. In Japan, the soles of the feet are a public taboo. Hijikata literally bared his naked feet and body shamelessly to the audience, and donned a grotesque array of costumes--kimono back?wards, a floor-length tutu, or a golden phal?lus. When he performed, the piercing look
in Hijikata's eyes gave the impression of unleashed madness.
Akaji Maro, the notorious director and founder of Dairakudakan (Great Camel Battleship), was primarily an actor before he was awed by Hijikata's performance. The two became very close, and though Mr. Maro never formally joined Hijikata's early '60s scandalous groups, he considered Hijikata his legitimate brother. The two men gleefully engaged in nightlong historical and philosophical discourse that often erupted into an improvisational spectacle. They shared a common viewpoint, asserting that j&the body had no limits, but was draped and propelled forward by ancient ghosts--"the , dead run inside me," said Hijikata, "driving ' ;every motion of my being." j
H Akaji Maro formed Dairakudakan, sub-isSstitled: Temptenshiki (to be born into this ,_4 world is a great talent onto itself) in 1972, in the communal spirit of Ankoku Butoh. Mr. ' Maro's intention was to combine some of the essence of Butoh with a theatrical level },. Kjjof performance, out of small dance halls to
a larger proscenium stage, and adding elab orate stage effects--lighting, set, costume, "f sound and design. He gleaned ancient Japanese epics, myths and ceremonial ori?gins of Japan for content, and gathered a company of more than twenty physically adept performers who lived communally in Tokyo. Mr. Maro did not take his troupe outside Japan until 1982, at the invitation of the American Dance Festival for a US tour_j-and visit to Festival d'Avignon in France, ?. when he brought his newest work, The Sea-Dappled Horse, which had premiered in Japan that year. It was the first time a Western audience experienced the world of Butoh, with its white painted makeup, ,-i writhing bodies and shocking imagery. ThS effect was daunting and audiences and M artists were shaken and intrigued by the aggressive style of the performers, and the level of intensity onstage. At a time when we had not yet seen the old Kazuo Ohno, or the five member troupe, Sankai Juku, New York Times critic, Anna Kisselgoff wrote in 1982, "Dairakudakan is reminiscent of the Living

Theater of the 1960s... its counter-culture trappings...and stage imagery have the same intent to shock...and contribute a statement -about society." Kisselgoff continued, "Mr. Maro, who has as shrewd a finger on the pulse of Western sensibilities as he does on j his own Japanese roots, must now be count?ed as a leader in the international nonverbal -theater movement." Due to the constraints of touring such an enormous group from Japan, and since the work is still considered "underground," Dairakudakan came to the US for a brief tour in 1987 and has not been here since. In fact, the company faces the same issues at home, and has had few appearances over the last thirteen years.
A star of stage and screen, Akaji Maro has a reputation of being a rabble-rouser, and for constantly challenging performers to discover new forms of expression. He asks, "What would happen if a man ate vacuum Would the body blow up" To retain this level of intensity, Mr. Maro asks the per?formers to show "no dancing," but instead to rely on their instincts. The company appears to be a circus spectacle gone haywire, with acrobatic daredevil clowns tossing them?selves aimlessly, carrying objects much heav?ier than their own body weight. These char?acters inhabit another world, beyond ours, where comedy and tragedy are ever chang?ing. Faces slip instantly from a frown, to a wide idiotic grin, to a frozen silent scream in a matter of seconds. An object on stage has its own life: a toothpick is both a tool for murder and an acupuncture needle. Each performer from the Great Camel Battleship seems to be part of a dying, decaying era-ghosts reborn to tell the tale of their violent destruction. And each seems to have swal?lowed his own share of vacuum, creating a near-explosive physical appearance--causing the audience to alternately cringe, guffaw, or gaze in hypnotic awe.
In Japan, artists like Tatsumi Hijikata, the father of Butoh, and Kazuo Ohno,
Butoh's "grandfather," and Akaji Maro were society dropouts, challenging tradition and non-traditional mores. That was then, and now, in the year 2001, a current Broadway play features a scene in which Kazuo Ohno is discussed by one of the characters as a W master of "poetry in performance."
There is Butoh on nearly every country in the world: East and West Europe, Russia, North and South America, and throughout Asia. Dairakudakan has spawned companies all over the world, and non-Japanese per?formers have lived in Japan, or studied and joined companies in Europe or the US. After unleashing Butoh from Japan in the early '80s, a boom of imitators, devotees, and a range of talented performers emerged across the globe, on nearly every continent, inter?preting, misinterpreting, and redefining their own dance within the framework of Butoh. I
Butoh has gone from back alleys, to major dance festivals, to the lights of Broadway, traveling a lifetime of change M over the last forty years. Most of the early Butoh exponents, such as Sankai Juku and Min Tanaka may even reject the term to ; describe their current artistic expression, k '" owing allegiance to their master by repeatr& ing his own rebellion. As the so-called piom neer of contact improvisation, Steve Paxton said, "We have two types of paths in dance, a 1 conservative track which evolves and a radiI cal track which mutates." 1
Butoh, a renegade form at its inception, I was destined to have both of these tracks, S spawning a generation of mutants reinvent1 ing themselves in true allegiance to the mas1 ter Hijikata. And now, after a hiatus of thira teen years, US audiences may once more be treated to The Sea-Dappled Horse, a spectacI ular performance created by Akaji Maro and 1 his talented artists from Dairakudakan. It is I rumored that although they have gone on to create their own companies, some of the jj original cast members will perform. It is an f
event that will surely stir up minds and hearts, and in our current wave of conser?vatism, may prove to be as shocking as it was in 1982.
