'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 g 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 US presentation in our community.
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 ?
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 ,r .

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 3 of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually. It-As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University
Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the perform?ing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensem?bles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works,
Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999.
youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts over eighty performances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that gathers in Hill and Rackham Auditoria, Power Center for the Performing Arts, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, the Detroit Opera House, Music Hall and the Residential College Auditorium.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor cam?pus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contri?butions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
hroughout its 121-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras and conductors. Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the University Musical Society, the 150-voice Choral Union is known for its definitive per?formances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Seven years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when ; began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd. In 1995, the Choral Union began accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire. During the 1996-97 season, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include performances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining with them in a rare presentation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand).
The Choral Union is a talent pool capable of performing choral music of every genre. In
addition to choral masterworks, the Choral Union has recently given acclaimed concert presentations of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra and musical-theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. A 72-voice chorus drawn from the larger choir has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solenelle, the Mozart Requiem and other works. The Choral Union's 36-voice Chamber Chorale presented "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods, at the University of Michigan Museum of Art.
During the 1999-2000 season, the Choral Union performed in three major subscription series at Orchestra Hall with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. 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.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mixture of townspeople, students and faculty, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997.
Hill Auditorium
tanding tall and proud in the heart of the University of Michigan campus, Hill Auditorium is associated with the best perform?ing artists the world has to offer. Inaugurated at the Twentieth Annual Ann Arbor May Festival in 1913, the 4,163-seat Hill Auditorium has served as a showplace for a variety of important debuts and long relationships throughout the past eighty-seven years. With acoustics that highlight everything from the softest notes of vocal recitalists to the grandeur of the finest orchestras, Hill Auditorium is known and loved throughout the world.
Former U-M regent Arthur Hill bequeathed $200,000 to the University for the construction of an auditorium for lectures, concerts and other university events. Then-UMS President Charles Sink raised an additional $150,000, and the concert hall opened in 1913 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra performing Beethoven's Symphony No. 5. The auditori?um seated 4,597 when it first opened; subse?quent renovations, which increased the size of the stage to accommodate both an orchestra and a large chorus (1948) and improved wheelchair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
Rackham Auditorium
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 acoustics of the church building, "?gj 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
" otvvithstanding 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

Giuseppe Verdi
Born October 9, 1813 in Le Roncole,
near Busseto, Italy Died January 27, 1901 in Milan
V hroughout his long life, Giuseppe Verdi devoted his energies almost exclusively to the writing of operas. He wrote only a few works in other forms, of which the Requiem is by far the greatest: since it is a vocal work for chorus and soloists (whose parts are every bit as demanding as any Verdian stage role), commentators have been quick to call the Requiem "operatic." Granted, Verdi was true to his own unmistakable personal style that is primarily known from his operas; yet, as David Rosen writes at the end of his Cambridge Music Handbook devoted to the work, "in important ways the Requiem is fun?damentally different from Verdi's operas."
The differences begin with the very way the piece came to be written. Unlike most of Verdi's operas, the Requiem was not com?missioned by anyone; it was Verdi's own ini?tiative, a project that occupied him for sev?eral years during which time he wrote no new operas. As a matter of fact, one has to talk about not one project but two, for the ?'' Requiem idea first arose in a form that never came to fruition.
On November 13,1868, Gioachino ? Rossini passed away at the age of seventy. six. The last surviving member of the great triumvirate of opera composers before Verdi was gone (Bellini and Donizetti had died many years earlier). Verdi, well aware that a whole era of musical history had come to an end, took the initiative--with the help of his publisher, Tito Ricordi--to invite a group of. composers to write a joint Requiem. The composers duly completed their work, but the performance fell through because of technical difficulties. (The Messa per Rossini remained unperformed until 1988.)
Verdi had written the "Libera me" movement for this composite Requiem; this extremely powerful contribution was subse?quently languishing in the composer's draw?er. Four years passed before Verdi decided to write an entire Requiem Mass of his own. The completed work was eventually dedicat?ed to the memory of another great Italian artist, the novelist Alessandro Manzoni. Yet in his book, David Rosen offers evidence that Verdi had begun thinking about writing a Requiem a month or so before Manzoni died, for reasons that are not entirely clear.! Verdi may have thought that, having com-. pleted Aida in 1871, he would write no more operas (his two late masterpieces for the theater, Othello and Falstaff, would only come many years later) and, by turning to sacred music, he was following in Rossini's footsteps, who, after the end of his operatic career, went on to write the Stabat Mater .,' and the Petite messe solennelle. 'k"
Yet there is no doubt that it was Manzoni's death at age eighty-eight on May 22,1873 that gave the writing of the Requiem a real purpose. Verdi deeply revered Manzoni, whose novel I promessi sposi (The Betrothed) is one of the great classics of Italian literature.. As with Rossini's death five years earlier, 'M he again voiced feelings about an era having ended, and offered his Requiem to the city of Milan, where Manzoni had made his JT home, to be performed on the first anniver?sary of the novelist's death.
This time, nothing stood in the way of the performance; the premiere--at Milan's San Marco church--was an overwhelming success and was followed by three more per?formances at La Scala, Milan's famous opera house. (The two female soloists, Teresa Stolz and Maria Waldmann, were the first Aida and the first Amneris, respectively.) Within a year, the work was performed in Paris, London, Vienna, and New York. ?
Any composer writing a Requiem in the 1870s had to be keenly aware of the great
previous accomplishments of Mozart,;
Berlioz, and Cherubini (the latter almost ?.'__
completely neglected today, but held in high' esteem throughout the nineteenth century). The first thing Verdi had to do was to define his own personal approach to the subject. From the outset, he clearly intended to give the vocal soloists far more important roles than had been the case in other Requiems. In addition, he was committed to driving home the emotional meaning of the text as strongly as possible. As a result, the very first word, "Requiem" is whispered rather than sung by the chorus, to avoid any musical
embellishments standing in the way of the word itself. Soon after that, of course, Verdi unleashed some of the great melodies of which he was the undisputed master. But his use of melody in the Requiem is always determined by what the sacred text calls for. The contrast between the whispered word "Requiem" and the beautiful violin melody that introduces the words "lux perpetua" (eternal light) shows how deeply Verdi pen?etrated the spirit of that text. For "Te decet hymnus" Verdi wrote a hymn for unaccom?panied chorus, whose contrapuntal imita?tions suggest Renaissance polyphony. After a return of the "Requiem aeternam" section (with choral whispers and lyrical violins) the soloists take over in the "Kyrie" a fervent plea for mercy {eleison).
The dramatic high point of the Requiem is, without question, the monu?mental "Dies irae." The fearsome strokes of
the timpani and bass drum serve as a back?drop for one of the most powerful expres?sions of fear and anguish in the entire litera?ture, in response to the famous medieval poem, attributed to Thomas of Celano (around 1250) that depicts the Last Judgment. Yet the eruption of intense emo4. tions gradually yields to silent shudders at Ml the words "Quantus tremor est futurus" '& Another violent explosion occurs at "Tubfl mirum" (with onstage and offstage brass), 31 followed by a whisper expressing the "stupe?fied" (stupebit) state in which Death and Nature find themselves. The same extremes
characterize the mezzo-soprano solo "Liber scriptus" which culminates in a reprise of , the movement's dramatic opening. j
The mood changes in "Quid sum ' miser" as the tempo slows down and the mezzo-soprano begins a beautiful lyrical melody surrounded by the figurations of a solo bassoon. This is where the poem sud?denly turns to first person singular: "What can a wretch like me say" The sectioKfti evolves into a profoundly moving trio '? between soloists (soprano, mezzo, tenor), ' which should perhaps be called a quartet, as the bassoon effectively takes the place of the bass singer as the fourth soloist in the sec-. tion. "??$p
Bass voices and low-pitched instrui ments intone the solemn "Rex tremendae majestatis" (King of terrible majesty), s answered by an ethereal melody at "Salva fjp me" (Save me). The two contrasting ideas $&
are combined in a powerful passage uniting a all the performing forces; a quiet restate'? ment of "Salva me" leads into "Recordare," a heart-rendingly beautiful duet for female voices. The tenor soloist sings "Ingemisco" in a tone that is in turn tender and heroic; the bass' "Confutatis maledictis" again links images of turmoil and salvation in a dra?matically poignant way. The lyrical conclu?? sion of the bass aria is brusquely interrupted"jg by another reprise of the movement's openM ing with its powerful drumstrokes. M
The "Dies irae" concludes with the j exceptionally moving"Lacrymosa" whose I melody comes from a duet Verdi had coma posed for Don Carlos but discarded before m the premiere. The mezzo-soprano soloist J begins the theme, gradually taken over by M the entire orchestra and all the singers. The 9 movement ends with a memorable coda, 1 including an unaccompanied passage for the'S four soloists and a final Amen with some 2 highly unusual chord combinations. 1
? The main melody of the "Offertory"-9 an eminently lyrical idea--is introduced by ? unaccompanied cellos and taken over by the E soloists. First, the three lower voices sing a together; the entrance of the soprano, on a 8 long-held note and accompanied only by .;j violins in their high register, depicts St. ?BST Michael showing the departed souls the light of eternity. A new theme, developed in imitation, and another idea, with a strong rhythmic energy, express the image of the earthly community ("Abraham and his seed"). With the middle section "Hostias et preces" we are back to heavens, as it were. ] Introduced by the tenor, this is a quiet J prayer for eternal life, followed by an expanded return of the "Abraham" section, i The movement ends quietly, with a repeat ofj the plea for life, rising from the lowest regis?ter of the voices to the highest, and fading .? away with the sound of the muted strings.
The "Sanctus" is a fugue for double chorus, in which the texts "Sanctus"
"Hosanna," and "Benedictus" are all com?bined, contrary to traditional practice. The vigorous contrapuntal activity stops in the final section of the movement, where the melody is presented in augmentation (twice as slowly as the first time) in preparation for a grandiose ending.
The beginning of the austere "Agnus .; Dei" alludes to (though does not actually quote) Gregorian chant with its unaccom-panied single vocal line, sung by the sopra?no and mezzo soloists in parallel octaves. The melody is repeated, without any changes, by the chorus. The instruments of the orchestra join in during further repeats of the melody, alternating between soloists and chorus. The most remarkable of these is the breath-taking quintet of two singers and three flutes, followed by a choral response and a short, highly emotional coda.
In "Lux aeterna," the idea of eternal light is symbolized by the tremolos (fast repeated notes) of the violins in a high reg?ister and--later in the movement--by the piccolo's striking staccato motif (one mov?ing in well-separated fast notes). A warm melody, first introduced by the bass soloist, is associated with the words "requiem aeter-nam" (eternal rest). Three of the four soloists (mezzo, tenor, and bass) come together in a harmonically intricate, unac?companied trio to praise God for His mercy {quia pius es).
The "Libera me" movement (the one Verdi had written for the aborted Messa per Rossini and later revised for the Manzoni Requiem) returns to the intense contrasts that characterized earlier movements, espe?cially the first two. This movement is for nj_ soprano solo (spared in the previous move?ment) and chorus. Like the opening of the entire Requiem, the "Libera me" begins with some speech-like recitation, with nothing distracting from the dark words of the litur?gy. The judging of the world by fire soon prompts an impassioned outburst, and the
trembling of the terrified soul is rendered by a very unsettling motion in descending half-steps. Since the text repeats the words "Dies irae" here, it was logical for Verdi, in the 1874 revision, to bring back, once more, the dramatic theme with the unforgettable drum strokes that has already been heard several times. The final evocation of the Judgment is followed by a varied repeat of ' the first movement {"Requiem aeternam"), scored here for a cappella voices (without instrumental accompaniment). A brilliant and fiery fugue crowns the movement, but , the last word, like the first, is barely whis pered: the last word belongs to introspec tion rather than to grand gestures. . ?.
I' The contrast between the extreme high drama and personal lyricism pervades the entire Requiem, yet Verdi took great care to : ensure that his work had sufficient musical ? coherence, something that was evidently of great importance to him. Attentive listeners, will discover that many of the work's IE melodies are intimately related through the use of recurrent melodic and rhythmic ele, ments; the literal repeats of earlier move'? ments in the "Libera me" forge even stronger links within the different sections of the work. This is why this monumental work seems so much of a piece, its unfold? ing from the opening "Requiem aeternam" to the final "Libera me," a single, bold musi?cal arch, with a vast array of emotions-indeed, life in its totality--portrayed during the intervening hour-and-a-half.

orri in Austria In 1958, Manfred Honeck is much sought after today by well-known orchestras throughout the world. He studied at the academy of music in Vienna, and is best known for his wide musical experience gained as a musician with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the orchestra of the Vienna State Opera.
As an assistant to Claudio Abbado in the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, Manfred Honeck's conducting breakthrough came at the first Gustav Mahler Festival in Kassel, Germany, 1989. That same year he made his debut at the Vienna Volksoper and soon afterwards at the Vienna State Opera and Berlin State Opera.
Of the many highlights of his career, one in particular was his debut with the ? ?
Vienna Philharmonic, during Mozart week in Salzburg, 1994. The fol?lowing year Maestro Honeck made his debu' with the Staatskapelle Dresden, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the BBC Symphony
Orchestra in London, which has since led to several appearances at the Proms.
In 1996 Manfred Honeck was a guest M with La Scala in Milan for a program of J Brahms and Berio. He was soon invited ? back to Milan for additional engagements.! After this, concerts followed with the _ orchestra of Leipzig's Gewandhaus, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra and the ,. s Houston Symphony Orchestra.

n a short period of time, Russian soprano Marina Mescheriakova has
established herself as one of the most exciting new voices in the opera and
____concert world. A recent performance
of Luisa Miller led one critic to write, "The soft, pure tones Mescheriakova floated in the Act I finale were ravishing to behold. Throughout the opera she sang with an ease, j accuracy and musical intelligence many a 4 citizen of Italy might envy (Toronto Star, I April 1997)."
Marina Mescheriakova began the 20002001 season with her debut with Sweden's Royal Stockholm Opera in her first performances of the title role in Maria Stuarda. The soprano then crosses the Atlantic for her return tothe Metropolitan Opera for a new production of trovatore. Further performances in this season of the centennial of Verdi's death include her return to the Opera de Paris and the Vienna Staatsoper as Elisabetta in Don Carlos; Helene in Jerusalem, again with the Vienna Staatsoper and under the direction of Zubin
Mehta as well as a series of performances of Verdi's Messa di Requiem in Copenhagen with the Danish Radio Symphony; Stockholm, New York and Washington, DC, all with the Olso Philharmonic;
and Monte-Carlo with the Opera di Monte-Carlo. Additional concert performances in ' this season include Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the BBC Symphony and Rachmaninoff's The Bells with the Berlin Philharmonic. . "' ?.,
Marina Mescheriakova is well known to audiences throughout North America and Europe. Her debut with the Metropolitan Opera was as Elisabetta in Don Carlos. Her success there led to her immediate re-engagement as Amelia in Simon Boccanegra, opposite Placido Domingo, and in three ' new productions of Verdi's operas. San Francisco Opera audiences first heard her as Elisabetta. Her debut in North America was in the title role of Luisa Miller with the Canadian Opera Company in Toronto, and she has since returned there for the title roles in Madame Butterfly and Norma.
Marina Mescheriakova has made a number of recordings including Glinka's ; A Life for the Tzar for the National Video! Corporation; Dvorak's Te deum for Chandos; Rubinstein's Demon, recorded live . at the Wexford and Bregenz Festivals; Verdi's Jerusalem and Alzira for Philips Classics; and Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Czech Philharmonic. ,fl
Marina Mescheriakova was born in j Volgograd, Russia and studied at the 1 Tchaikovsky Conservatory in Moscow. She continued her vocal studies with Licia Albanese in New York. After her debut at the Bolshoi in Moscow she won several presti?gious competitions including the Belvedere Competition in Vienna as well as I Cestelli in Berlin and Hamburg.
Ms.' Mesdieriaicbva currently resides ifi Vienna, Austria.
Tonight's performance marks Marina Mescheriakova's UMS debut.
he young mezzo-soprano Nadja Michael is establishing herself as one of the most exciting singers to emerge in recent times.
Born and raised in Leipzig, she$H fled to the West soon after leaving school. She later continued her vocal studies in Stuttgart and at the University of Indiana, Bloomington.
She soon appeared on the stages of the Dresden Semperoper, the Berlin Staatsoper, the Bavarian Staatsoper in Munich, the Teatro di San Carlo in Naples, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and has sung at the Festivals of Glyndebourne and Salzburg. She recently sang her first Dalila in Samson and _____________ Dalila at La Fenice in
Venice, and Carmen at La Monnaie, Brussels. Future plans include Magdalena in Die Meistersinger and Pauline in Pique Dame at Covent Garden, Venus in Tannhauser in Toulouse and also at the Bayerische
Staatsoper, Eboli in Don Carlos at the Bayerische Staatsoper, and Carmen at the Vienna Staatsoper.
Amongst Nadja Michael's successes are the roles of Varvara (Katya Kabanova), Amastris (Xerxes), Dulcinee {Don Quichotte), Fricka (Das Rheingold), Charlotte in Werther, and Ottavia ( Coronazione di Poppea). She was especially acclaimed in her favorite role of Eboli in Don Carlos during recent perfor?mances in St. Gallen. One Munich newspa?per described her as the very embodiment of erotic temptation with a "dark, alluring
She has sung under Maestros Rilling, Nagano, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Masur and Haitink. Ms. Michael's work on the concert platform is also very important to her-Bach, Handel and Verdi are all part of her repertoire. However, above all she has a par?ticular affinity with the late romantics--she
[ has performed Mahler's Das Lied von der Erde, the Riickert and Kindertotenlieder and
' Symphony No. 2 in Naples, London and Zurich. 4" "? ??-'?? . . ?..

he Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra has become a major presence in many parts of the world. Its combination of elegant musicianship and enlightened programming has been widely appreciated throughout Europe, Japan and the US.
Although founded in the late 1930s, only with the arrival of Sergiu Celibidache in 1962 did the Orchestra's position at the forefront of Swedish musical life begin to be reflected internationally. In 1979, during Herbert Blomstedt's term as principal con?ductor, it moved into the award-winning Berwaldhallen, its first permanent home in Stockholm. The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra has enjoyed a long tradition of collaboration with distinguished artists: the 1950s and 1960s saw visits from Hindemith, Stravinsky, Barbirolli, Solti, Colin Davis and Giulini. In later years, the list of guest con?ductors and soloists has included de Burgos, Jochum, Kubelik, Muti, Ehrling, Oistrakh, Rostropovich and Ashkenazy. This has con?tinued into the present with return visits from Sanderling, Blomstedt and Myung-Whun Chung.
As confirmation of his long and fruitful relationship with the Orchestra, in 1996 Carlo Maria Giulini accepted the post of Conductor Laureate. Under the baton of Esa-Pekka Salonen, principal conductor between 1985 and 1995, the Orchestra developed their touring activities and estab?lished their worldwide reputation. The out?standing partnership with Maestro Salonen also resulted in well-received recordings on the Sony Classical label, including the com?plete cycle of the Nielsen Symphonies and Dallapiccola's Prigioniero and Canti di Prigionia, which won the Cecilia award in Belgium. Their recording of Nielsen's Violin Concerto with Cho-Liang Lin won a 1989 Gramophone award, and a new Nielsen recording and Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex, both with the Swedish Radio Chorus, have
been widely praised.
The 199899 season saw a large number of international engagements including vis?its to the Warsaw Autumn Festival with Joseph Swensen, concerts in Spain with Myung-Whun Chung and an appearance at the Vienna Konzerthaus with Esa-Pekka Salonen. In the summer of 1999, the Orchestra returned to the Edinburgh Festival and BBC Proms with Myung-Whun Chung. January and February 2000 saw a highly successful major UK tour with their out-going principal conductor, Yevgeny Svetlanov. In Autumn 2000, Manfred Honeck was appointed Music Director of the Orchestra, with this current tour mark?ing his first major tour with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Swedish Radio Choir and Eric Ericson Chamber Choir in the US.
Within Sweden, the Orchestra regularly plays to a radio audience of some 200,000 listeners. Since 1948, under the leadership Oi Sten Frykberg followed by Stig Westerberg, the performance of new Swedish music has been a priority for the Orchestra. This tradi-j tion of the interpretation of twentieth-cen.1 tury music continues under the Orchestra's J current Principal Guest Conductor, Mark Wigglesworth, and will be developed further under Music Director Manfred Honeck, who first visited the Orchestra in 1997. In addition to his work with Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Manfred Honeck makes regular guest appearances with other Scandinavian Orchestras. ;

he Swedish Radio Choir is current?ly one of the world's leading a capella ensembles and the only pro?fessional choir of its type in Sweden. The Choir contains thirty-three singers, all of whom have extensive experience in both choral and solo singing, with most members having graduated from music academies.
The Swedish Radio Choir was founded! in 1925 making it one of Europe's oldest I radio choirs. The current form of the Choir dates back to 1952, when a young Eric Ericson became its leader. Through his inter?est in new music, his own musical qualities and his belief in the choir as a professional instrument, he was able to form an ensemble that quickly gained worldwide recognition. The Swedish Radio Choir performed works that no one else had or could perform. They also made several classic recordings of choral music that stand as benchmark recordings of the literature, even today.
Since the time of Ericson, the Choir has, in several ways, reinforced and strengthened its position in the choral world. The tradi?tion of performing highly demanding music has continued. Collaboration between Swedish and foreign composers has resulted in many works being written specifically for the Swedish Radio Choir. But it is for the performance of newly written Swedish music that the Choir has a particular role.
For many years the Swedish Radio Choir has collaborated with foreign orches?tras and conductors including La Scala Philharmonic Orchestra with Riccardo Muti, the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra with Herbert Blomstedt and, perhaps most notably, the Berlin Philharmonic under Claudio Abbado. This collaboration has, amongst other things, resulted in many joint recordings.
Extensive touring throughout Europe, America and Japan has contributed greatly to the Swedish Radio Choir's reputation as
one of the world's leading choirs. SM&fiUfrhe Swedish Radio Choir has, since the departure of Ericson, been led by two of Sweden's most notable choral conductors, Anders Ohrwall and Gustav Sjokvist. Since 1994, Tonu Kaljuste has been Principal = Conductor. ?. a
d by Kaljuste, the Choir was awarded the 1998 ABC Music Award (ABC Music Foundation in Japan) after a highly . :t
acclaimed appearance in Osaka. Most ''i recently, in January 2000, the Choir and Kaljuste were awarded the prestigious Cannes Classical Award for their recording of Schnittke's Psalms of Repentance--?
Tonight's performance marks the Swedish Radio Choir's debut under UMS auspices. Tomorrow evening, Saturday, February 17, at 8 p.m., the choir will perform a special a cappella performance with their founder, choral conducting master Eric Ericson at Ann Arbor's St. Francis ofAssisi Catholic Church.]
1 he Eric Ericson Chamber Choir
was founded in 1945 by Eric Ericson and has held a central posi tion in the Swedish and interna-tional music scene ever since. The specific aims of the choir and its leader, to constantly seek out new music and new r$B? areas of work, has today resulted in an ? j extensive repertoire spanning from the Renaissance to the latest avant-garde. The Chamber Choir, with its characteristic g Nordic sound and wide-ranging virtuosity,1'; has been an ideal vehicle for several genera-1 tions of Swedish composers.
Internationally, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir ranks amongst the highest levels of professional choirs and it has received many international awards includ?ing the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis and the.-! Edison Price. The Choir undertakes several, tours each year throughout Europe, the US
and Canada and has made numerous recordings of a capella repertoire on a num?ber of different recording labels.
Together with the Swedish Radio Choir, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir has made several recordings with the Berlin ??
Philharmonic Orchestra, including Verdi'sjj Quattro Pezzi Sacri and Mozart's Requiem g with Riccardo Muti, and Haydn's Die Schb'pfung and Beethoven's Missa Solemnis under the baton of James Levine. The Choir has made several appearances at La Scala, Milan under the direction of Riccardo Muti. The Choir has also worked on several occa?sions with Nicolaus Harnoncourt and his _ Orchestra, Concentus Musicus, Vienna, " "" resulting in a recording of Handel's Messiah.
Over the last few years the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and the Swedish Radio Choir have been frequent guests of the M Berlin Philharmonic where they have per?formed concerts resulting in recordings of Brahms' Ein Deutsches Requiem, Schumann's Szenen aus Goethes Faust and Stravinsky's Oedipus Rex under Claudio Abbado.
Besides their extensive a capella projects, the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir frequently collaborates with the Drottningholm Baroque Ensemble. The Eric Ericson 3 Chamber Choir regularly performs on ;J Swedish Radio and Television and has for many years worked on a part-time basis for Swedish National Radio. ;
Tonight's performance marks the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir's debut under UMS auspices. Tomorrow evening, Saturday, February 17, at 8 p.m., the choir will perform a special Ir a cappella performance with their founder, choral conducting master Eric Ericson at Ann , Arbor's St. Francis of Assist Catholic Church.
Berwaldhallen, the national venue for Swedish music, is named after one of Sweden's best-known composers, Franz Berwald (1796-1868). It is a national venue for Swedish music and has been the home of both the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Choir since 1979.
The Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Swedish Radio Choir are two of the most important ensembles in contemporary music. Since most concerts are performed live on Swedish Radio P2, their music is broadcast across the entire country, and therefore they act as an inspiration to all r., , areas of Swedish musical life.
Berwaldhallen, as part of Swedish National Radio, views its responsibility ; towards Swedish music as one of the more important obligations of public service radio.

Lux aeterna (Sostenuto, molto calmo, "from afar")
Gyorgy Ligeti
Born May 28, 1923 in Dicsoszentmdrton, Transylvania
Contemporary Hungarian composer Gyorgy Ligeti is very conscious of the Hungarian choral tradition when he composes a capella choral works. Though he admits to having had a very poor voice in his youth, he often sang in choirs with his colleagues, where the repertoire ranged from Renaissance polyphony to newer works by Hungarian composers. After the Soviet-imposed ??? Socialist Realism became the dominant aes-;' thetic standard in Hungary during the post?war years, Ligeti returned to choral compo. sition as a form of rebellion, and folksong , arrangements form much of Ligeti's choral output during the early 1950s. After escap?ing in the wake of the failed Hungarian ? -? uprising in 1956, Ligeti turned more to ',, instrumental composition, earning a reputa-' tion among the avant-garde for his manipu?lations of massive clusters of sound. In composing Lux aeterna for unac?companied mixed chorus in 1966, Ligeti sig-1 naled something of a change in direction for his music. Not only was the text--from the Latin Requiem Mass--outside of his own j religious tradition (Ligeti's heritage is pre?dominantly Jewish), he also experimented with a new method of composition that is derived to some degree from the Renaissance polyphonic works he had sung as a youth. While his earlier works such as '. Atmospheres and the Requiem achieve their ? effect through sustained chromatic tone : clusters, Lux aeterna introduces a technique that the composer describes as microp-olyphony: "a polyphonic texture so thickly woven that the individual voices become.--' indistinguishable, and only the resulting harmonies, blending seamlessly one into another, can be clearly perceived." In prac-
tice, it is a type of klangfarbenmelodie or tone-color melody, characterized by gradual changes in harmony and timbre. There are very few points of articulation in this work, so that any change in register or sound color stands out as an important formal signpost.
Ligeti seems to treat the text ironically in this setting. This is not the reassuring, warming light of heavenly rest, but the painful, piercing light of a nuclear flash, a brilliance that scorches rather than com?forts.
The Lux aeterna was propelled into popular consciousness when Stanley Kubrick used it (without the composer's permission) in his 1968 science-fiction clas?sic 2001: A Space Odyssey. Though Ligeti did not endorse the use of his music in that film, it did give him substantial free publici?ty, and he consequently allowed Kubrick to use his music in later films such as Tife, Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. .... .
Ein Deutsche Motet, Op. 62
Richard Strauss
Born June 11, 1864 in Munich, Germany
Died September 8, 1949 in Garmisch-
r ? _.. Partenkirchen, Bavaria ...,., .?
Richard Strauss is not widely known for his choral music, his reputation resting largely on his richly-scored and intensely Romantic operas, symphonic poems, and orchestral -w lieder. But Strauss occasionally ventured :" into choral writing, and although these works are rarely considered central either to his oeuvre or to the choral tradition in gen?eral, they exhibit the same lush textures and orchestral conceptions that typify his major compositions.
Strauss' first attempts at unaccompa?nied choral writing were his Op. 34 settings of poems by the early German Romantic poet Friedrich Riickert. These works are for sixteen-part chorus, an especially rich scor-
ing that allowed for a tremendous variety of I textures and colors. Ruckert's poetry '
appealed to Strauss, and he set several other Riickert poems in his solo lieder as well. Strauss turned again to Riickert in his Op. 62 choral work, Ein Deutsche Motet, from ') 1913, a setting of Ruckert's poem "Die
Schopfung ist zur Ruh gegangen" (All ere.; ation is at rest). Again, the composer used a sixteen-part unaccompanied chorus, though ' with four added soloists that even further expand the textural, dynamic, and timbral ' possibilities. i
Throughout his career, Strauss entirely '. avoided religious or sacred composition, at j least in the traditional sense of setting litur; gical texts. Though he excelled in bold ;
philosophical statements, couched in the i powerful language of late Romanticism, ,' there is almost nothing in his oeuvre that ,' speaks directly of religious devotion. The t spellbound intensity of Ein Deutsche Motet is perhaps as close as he ever came.
Ein Deutsche Motet dates from around '; the same period as the Alpine Symphony and ' the ballet Josephslegende, and was begun just ; after the premiere of Ariadne aufNaxos. Strauss' approach to choral writing in this : work owes much to the orchestral ideas found in these other compositions, with ; instrumentally conceived motifs and tech? niques that are unidiomatic for the voice. It i is formidably difficult music for a large choir, with its intense chromaticism and complex harmonic shifts. Strauss also ]
extends the vocal ranges to an extreme
degree: the basses are required to sing a low ] 'B-flat' (below the bass clef) while the '
sopranos go up to a high 'D-flat.'
This work follows a form that Strauss had used earlier in his Op. 34 choral works: i the antiphonal effects of the opening are followed by a contrapuntal central passage building to a climax in which the two lines combine. Choral writing was perhaps not h Strauss' favorite idiom, yet the closing sec;
tion of Ein Deutsche Motet has a ravishing eloquence that equals in beauty the most memorable passages of Ariadne and y Rosenkavalier. ,?
Libera me :
Ingvar Lidholm
Born February 24, 1921 in Jonkoping, Sweden
Ingvar Lidholm is one of the leading '
Swedish composers of this century, perhaps vying only with Hugo Alfven (1872-1960) for the honor of being Sweden's most important composer of all time. Early in his career, Lidholm was a member of the influ?ential "Monday Group," a gathering of young composers at the Royal Swedish ' Academy of Music in the immediate post-J war era who looked to Hindemith, Nielsen,' and Stravinsky as their models. In the late 1940s, however, Lidholm was persuaded toMj abandon the neoclassicism of the S
Hindemith style and take up serialism. In JB more recent years he has tempered his expressionist serialism with a return to clear" textures and emotional discipline.
Though Lidholm has been prolific in ! the composition of both instrumental andn vocal forms--counting operas, concertos, m and chamber works among his major coma positions--he has become known most $ widely outside of Sweden for his choral 9 music. Lidholm's interest in early vocal a polyphony was manifest in his Laudi (1947) for chorus. In 1956, he began a series of pedagogical choral works, graded by diffi,&$( culty in a manner similar to Bartok's Mikrokosmos for piano, called the A cappella bok, in which all the pieces are based on a .lH? single twelve-note series. But even through this serial period he retained a sensitivity to ., the lyricism of choral scoring. His deep sense of music's essential vocality influenced even his instrumental works; Lidholm's most performed piece is the orchestral jj?
Kontakion (1979), an instrumental requiem,; based on an old Russian Orthodox hymn.
In addition to the requiem-like charac-; ter of Kontakion, Lidholm has on several occasions written independent choral move-v ments that allude to the Requiem mass. His opera Ett dromspel (A Dream Play, 1978-89), to a libretto by Strindberg, concludes with an a cappella De profundis that was excerpt?ed and published separately in 1983. The Libera me, composed in 1994 also for unac?companied chorus, uses the traditional text from the Requiem.

Died 1998 in Hamburg $??
Alfred Schnittke was born in Russia as a German Jew (he observed later that he has not a single drop of Russian blood in him), , was raised in Vienna, and then moved with , his family back to Russia as a teenager in 1948. Throughout his life, Schnittke found himself in a position similar to Mahler, who had remarked at one point that he was SHU thrice homeless--as a Bohemian in Vienna,.. an Austrian in Germany, and a Jew every-where, "always an outsider, never at home." , In Russia, Schnittke had been labeled a Jew since his teenage years, but in Germany he was a "Russian composer." He never felt truly "at home" in either country. -ift
This duality perhaps explains in part ; why Schnittke turned to polystylism in so many of his works--a mercurial blend of past musical styles and traditions that are juxtaposed in often alarming ways. Though .' this places Schnittke in the same generals realm as the post-modernists and neoRomantics, his recalling of past styles is "... more Mahlerian, as it nostalgically seeks reo? onciliation out of this cultural dissonance.
Sch'nittke's crisis of identity was as much religious as it was national. Because of his father's intense atheism, and his parents' absolute commitment to communism, he was not baptized as a child. He admitted .-that he "looks like a typical Jew," but-f3" Schnittke felt little allegiance to the Jewish faith of his paternal grandparents. When, as an adult, he sought to affiliate himself with organized religion, he faced a Stravinskian choice: Catholicism or Russian Orthodoxy. In the end he combined the two, and was baptized a Catholic in 1982, but made ; confession to an Orthodox priest.
This anxiety of religious and national identity is central to Schnittke's music. He! quotes Gregorian chant in his Symphony No. 1 and No. 2 and in the Requiem (1975). The four instrumental Hymns from the 1970s and his String Quartet No. 2 (1980) borrow Orthodox melodies. In 1984 he composed Three Sacred Hymns in one night, works that are very close in style and mood to genuine Orthodox Church music. And in Symphony No. 4 (1984), he reconciled his . personal religious pluralism by using .4 melodies from Catholic, Protestant, v Orthodox, and Jewish liturgical traditions.!
The Concerto for Mixed Chorus, com?pleted in the first half of 1985, is in some ' . respects a product of this internal rapproche?ment of faith. It is one of Schnittke's deepest, most profound, and stylistically consistent works, without even a hint of the nervous ' polystylism of his earlier music--the music of a man who has found peace in his faith. The Concerto is written very much in the manner of Russian church music of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It recalls the sacred and liturgical works of Stravinsky, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninov, Mussorgsky, and Gretchaninov, and yet it is unmistakably Schnittke. .'ilWBT
The lengthy text is from the Book of Lamentations by the tenth-century Armenian poet Gregory of Narek (Grigor Narekatsi).
The text of the first movement pays rever?ence to an omnipotent and omniscient God, while imploring Him for mercy. Schnittke's jgj predominantly low, dark textures periodical?ly move upwards with the addition of higher voices, signifying the struggle of the humble mortal's prayer to reach the heights of heaven, while the repetition of short figures JI recalls the practice of liturgical chant. :?5p
The second movement focuses on the g failings of mortality, and is a message of ? hope to those who read them: "May these ? verses, full of my suffering, become a guidM ance to someone." The obsessive melodic circling around a central pitch, against a static background, mimics the plodding tread of a sinner burdened with world-weariness. A favorite device of Schnittke's is to have many voice parts gradually converge onto one pitch; it is used in this movement perhaps to rep?resent the common suffering that is the lot of all mortals. The tempo quickens toward the end, an intensification of effect, and concludes mystically with the gradual fading of women's
voices in the manner of the "Neptune" m----?
movement from Hoist's The Planets.
Though men's voices predominate in the supplicative third movement, the sopra?no's two-note motif from the previous , !; movement returns as a background ?? leitmotif. The fourth movement sets the3 shortest of the four texts, and through music effects the reconciliation and healing that has been sought throughout the work: "Complete this work which I began in hope, and with Your name, so that my singing may become healing, curing the wounds of body and soul." Schnittke employs slow tempi and consonant major-key harmonies significantly more in this movement than in the previous three movements, giving it a steadfastness and serenity that culminates in the repetition of the affirming benedictory "Amen." ., ?

ric Ericson, born in 1918, is, for' the great majority of choral con?ductors and choral singers . throughout the world, the unsurl! . passed master in the field of choral conducting. His entire career has been ? devoted to choral music; his work has not ' only brought great acclaim to his own choirs but has significantly contributed to a breakthrough in establishing the status and merit of choral music and singing in choirs as a highly valuable form of music-making. Through his dedication to the field of choirs and choral music, an extraordinary develop, ment of skill in interpretation and vocal '4KJ standards and an interest in the medium from contemporary composers has arisen,. not only in Sweden, but from all over the -??h world where Ericson has been concert-tour?ing or giving master classes.
Eric Ericson formed the Stockholm m$j Chamber Choir in 1945 (renamed in 1988 1 as the "Eric Ericson Chamber Choir"). This ensemble has remained his main instrument for developing the art of a capella singing fjfljm ever since. Alongside his work with the '
Chamber Choir he has been Conductor and Artistic Director of the Swedish Radio Choir (1951-1982) and Orphei Drangar (1951J 1991). For many years Eric Ericson was a m legendary figure as Professor of Choral "ty Conducting at the Royal University College '
of Music in Stockholm. Over the years his international commitments have become steadily more extensive. Not only has he appeared as a guest conductor with all of -: the world's major choirs, but also in a series of approximately ten master classes world?wide every year, he is appreciated as a par?ticularly valued and stimulating teacher.
Since his retirement from the post of Principal Conductor of the Swedish Radio Choir in 1982, Professor Ericson has been giving numerous master classes all over the i world. He has also guest-conducted many leading vocal groups, including the Netherlands Chamber Choir, Groupe Vocal-de France, BBC Singers, RIAS Kammerchor, and the Vienna State Opera Choir. He has also conducted numerous performances of' major works with leading orchestras and choirs in Europe, Australia, Japan, Hong Kong, and in the US. He frequently collabo?rates with conductors such as Nicolaus M Harnoncourt, Claudio Abbado, James ? Levine, Riccardo Muti and Pierre Boulez. ?
In 1988, Eric Ericson received the Swedish Choral Conductors' Prize and in lJ[fl991 the Danish Sonning Music Prize. In 1995, he was awarded the Swedish Academy-Royal Prize and the Nordic Council Music Prize. In 1997, he was the recipient of the prestigious Polar Music Price. He became an Honorary Doctor at Uppsala University in 1983 and at the University of Alberta, U Canada in 1996. Professor Ericson is a member of the Swedish Royal Academy of Music and the Honorary President of the ? International Federation for Choral Music.

Chaconne in d minor, BWV 1004 ,
(from Violin Partita No. 2)
Johann Sebastian Bach .!
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
Marc Pincherle, the noted French musicolo?gist and historian on the violin, wrote a very convincing letter on behalf of Andres Segovia's first performance (Paris, June 4,1935) of his arrangement of the "Chaconne." Knowing that Bach had arranged many of his works for other instruments, Pincherle pursued the possibility that "...a direct connection with the guitar may yet be brought to light. The very key of'd' in which the 'Chaconne' is written, is the perfect tonality for the guitar....the Iberian origin of the 'Chaconne' might have Sljf suggested to Bach the idea of assigning it to ailS a Spanish instrument..." Because of Segovia's persistence and the support he received from such musicians as Pincherle, the Bach "Chaconne" has become an important , '-J addition to the guitar repertoire. . -.;
j,' Both the zarabanda and the chaconne were discovered by the Spanish in their con quest of the Americas during the sixteenth ' Hll century. Both were originally considered to
I be sensual dances, eventually losing their ; wanton ways in the European courts. Closely related to the passacaitle, the basic musical structure of the chaconne, consisting of an ostinato (repeated pattern) either in chords or bass line, became another vehicle for extemporization. The work is shaped into three major sections: the first, in d minor, opens with an eight-measure theme stated in a chordal progression and proceeds into a series of figural variations ending with the opening statement; the second sec tion begins in the parallel major and again proceeds into another series of variations ; " closing with a figural statement of the -. theme; the final section returns to the minor key, contrasting all previous variations with another series of variations, tying the whole
work together with a slightly altered version of the opening statement, bringing the work to a grand finale.
Bach's creative skills in this highest of jj musical art forms--improvisation--is con-j firmed in many anecdotes written during his lifetime and immediately after his death. One such story, written by Friedrich W. :i Marpurg (1718-1795), a German music his?torian, tells of the visiting organ virtuoso who is challenged by the very capable townpi organist to "lead each other astray" pera forming all sorts of fantasies, duets, trios, and quartets, fugued or unfugued. The con?test goes on for some time and eventually the visitor began to employ the more hida den arts of counterpoint and modulation. He made use of augmentation, diminution, combined several subjects, put them into contrary motion and began to modulate into remote regions. The town organist began to feel his way around but found ? himself inextricably lost. "So he arose from his keyboard, ran to his opponent, whom he acknowledged to have won the contest, entreated him to continue his intricate organ playing as long as he cared to, admired him, embraced him, and said that.... he must be either Sebastian Bach or an 1 angel from Heaven. It was indeed Sebastian Bach, with whom the organist would not have matched talents if he had recognized "
Suite No. 4 in E Major, BWV 1006a
J.S.Bach .-?.?? ??
The lute was a delicate, fragile, plucked : instrument that was popular in Europe for centuries until "improvements" made it so complex and cumbersome that it was given up in favor of the harpsichord, whose key?board makes it, in effect, a mechanized lute. In Bach's time, the lute was very nearly obsolete, though kept alive, in Germany, by
a small number of virtuoso players, some of whom were his pupils. In our time, Bach's lute music is, more often than not, played M on the guitar. W.
The Suite No. 4 in E Major was adapted by the composer from his third partita (a word then almost interchangeable with "suite") for unaccompanied violin. It opens with a brilliant "Prelude" that is followed by five dance movements. The first of them is "Loure," a slowly rocking rustic or pastoral 3 dance that originated in France in the seven teenth century and probably took its name from the bagpipes that accompanied it. Next is "Gavotte en Rondeau." The "Gavotte" is a seventeenth-century French dance whose melodies and phrases characteristically begin in mid-measure. "Gavotte" is "in rondo," a musical structure in which the opening theme recurs in alternation with contrasting material. This movement is followed by a w pair of minuets. When the second has been played, the first is repeated. A lively "Bourree" follows, with the piece ending in a final spir?ited "Gigue," a stylized Anglo-Irish jig. .. .
Children's Songs
Chick Corea
Born June 12, 1941 in Chelsea, Massachusetts
Born Armando Anthony Corea in 1941, in Jl Chelsea, Massachusetts, Chick began his ? piano career at the age of four. Through the recordings of such artists as Bud Powell, Horace Silver, and Charlie Parker, he developed an interest in jazz and performed with such groups as Mongo Santamaria, Herbie Mann, and Miles Davis. His compositional palette moves through a wide range of ( styles--from lyrical solo pieces to contem-' porary compositions utilizing techniques derived from rock and jazz performance. Mr. Barrueco is performing this afternoon a selection of the thirteen Children's Songs which he transcribed and recorded on his S
recording Sometime Ago.
Mr. Corea says this about his Children's Songs:
The Children's Songs are the first collec?tion of music I've written specifically for, solo keyboard. I wrote the first song in j 1971 to convey simplicity as beauty, as represented in the spirit of a child. Songs
fl through 15 were composed for the jr Fender Rhodes [electric keyboard] andj i 16 through 20 for the acoustic piano, S ' although any of the songs can be played on either instrument. Songs 17 through , 20 were composed during a one-month
period in 1980, completing the series. The ? songs lend themselves nicely to various ... forms of expansion with orchestration.
Choro No. 1
Heitor Villa-Lobos ?]
Born March 5, 1887 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Died November 17, 1959 in Rio de Janeiro
Heitor Villa-Lobos first studied under the guidance of his father, with whom he learned to play cello and clarinet. Early on, he rejected his father's conventional meth?ods of teaching music, but he never denied their relevance. During his adolescence, Rio de Janeiro was the political and cultural capital of Brazil and received a great deal of foreign influence. At the time, one could hear small orchestras in the noble "salons" perform tangos from Argentina, and valses, polkas, and schottishes from Europe. Street musicians reproduced these styles, mixing them with African rhythms, resulting in a new musical style named "choro'' ffijjj Villa-Lobos was himself a choro player and regularly attended the musical meetings ; promoted by musicians like Catulo da Paixao Caerense, Anacleto de Medeiros, and 1 Joao Pernambuco. These gatherings helped i him shape his guitar-playing skills, and later, .3 to create his own original guitar music. ir'-
Tres Piezas Espanolas (Three Spanish Pieces)
Joaquin Rodrigo
Born November 22, 1901 in Sagunto,
Valencia, Spain ?,
Died July 6, 1999 in Madrid
Spanish composer Joaquin Rodrigo, whose life spanned the twentieth century, died in July of 1999 at the age of ninety-eight. Blind since the age of three, Rodrigo became a pupil of the Frenchman Paul Dukas in his ; twenties. A French refinement and sensitivi?ty to color mingles with the more promi?nent Spanish influences in his music. Hejj lived in exile in Paris during the Spanish Revolution, but soon returned to become the dean of Spanish composers
The outer movements of the three ""; Spanish Pieces--a "Fandango" full of '-.. opalescent discords and a "Zapateado," ' breathless in its almost constant unison character--frame a brilliantly composed "Passacaglia," whose twelve variations on a bass sequence that consists of steps of thirds, end with a polyphonic fandango coda. Here, Rodrigo manages convincingly to fill old forms with newly illuminated ?" ?musical substance. ??.?..??,.

anuel Barrueco has firmly established himself as one of the most important guitarists in the world today. Since his i dazzling debut recital at Carnegie Hall in 1974, his artistry has con?tinually been described as that of a superb instrumentalist and an elegant musician, with a seductive sound and uncommon lyri?cal gifts.
His extensive discography on EMIAngel also demonstrates his outstanding versatility with commanding performances of the works of Bach and Mozart, to the great Spanish masters, to the music of jazz greats Chick Corea and Keith Jarrett. ;Cuba!, his most recent recording, was called "an extra?ordinary musical achievement" by the San Francisco Chronicle, while his recording of Joaquin Rodrigo's Concierto deAranjuez ?'? with conductortenor Placido Domingo and the Philharmonia Orchestra was called the, best recording of that piece in Classical CD Magazine. Other recent recordings are Cantos y Danzas, which includes collabora?tions with soprano Barbara Hendricks and flutist Emmanuel Pahud, and Three Solo me Sonatas by J.S. Bach. ?
Manuel Barrueco has played under the batons of conductors such as Seiji Ozawa, j Esa-Pekka Salonen, Franz Welser Most and David Zinman, and his commitment to the expansion of the guitar repertoire has led -j him to collaborations with contemporary composers such as Arvo Part, Toru Takemitsu, Roberto Sierra and Steven Stucky. 8813""
His performances have been broadcast on NHK Television in Japan and Bayerischer Rundfunk Television in Germany, while in the US he has been featured on CBS Sunday Morning as well as appearing in a Lexus car commercial.
Two highlights of the 19981999 season included a performance at the Hollywood Bowl Opening Night Gala with famed Beatles producer Sir George Martin, and a perfor-
mance of the Concierto de Aranjuez in : Joaquin Rodrigo's native Valencia in a 'S memorial concert commemorating the ': composer's recent death. Other appearances included performances with the Milwaukee '. Symphony and the Baltimore Symphony j Orchestras. He is also currently involved in . an ongoing residency with San Francisco ? Performances, which brings him regularly to that city for recital and community outreach programs. '1K3S?M '
Appearances abroad included concerts' in England, Germany, Italy, Spain, Iceland, Turkey, the Czech Republic and Mexico. i The 19992000 season brought him back to many of those countries, in addition to Austria, Holland, Slovenia, China, Japan JS Korea and Taiwan. jc
Manuel Barrueco began to play the -.,.,_ guitar at the age of eight and attended the
Esteban Salas Conservatory in his native Santiago de Cuba. He moved with his family to the US in 1967, later completing his advanced studies at the Peabody :
Conservatory in Baltimore, Maryland, ,
where he now teaches.

The first part of Paysage apr&s la Bataille was created and performed at the Theatre des Salins--Scene nationale of Martigues on December 7,1996. ?']
Paysage apres la Bataille was premiered in July 1997 at the Festival d'Avignon.
Paysage apres la Bataille
(Landscape after the Battle)
aysage apr&s la Bataille ponders the mystery of human creativity. How . much of great art, Angelin Preljocaj wonders, is intelligence, how much instinct His inspirations are the artisttheoristiconoclast Marcel Duchamp
the writer Joseph Conrad. : The curtain rises on a stage set with a neon-hued faux animal fur backdrop; at each wing are three gaudily festooned cur-: tained booths-entranceways for the per-i formers. The stage is an arena, a clearing I where men and women confront their frank 5 desires and test their sharp wits. Hi' The dancers execute a seamless blend of R? classical and modern techniques with fero-g cious intensity. The choreography alternates 8jp.' languid passages of slowed down dancing Si with space-eating, brutally blunt and physi-
t-cally incisive movement. The work is dark and bleak, savage, erotic, playful, unpre-jv: dictable and extreme. MUnprovoked violence breaks out in a a? dance hall from the smoky encounters of
cioseiy neia coupies. uancers ooey a screamed signal to change positions and freeze. Men in gorilla-suites learn a dance sequence by "aping" the moves of an anthropoid choreographer, then shed their animal skins and emerce stark
naked to lie prone. Inert, vulnerable, they are fondled by a half naked woman. Six men execute a gymnas?tic game of musical chairs, linked by the rising momentum of physical virtuosity and split-second timing. A drop-dead shoot-out escalates into a stylized round-robin of brutal mur?ders. Bodies are flung into a head like so much scrap. Two polar bears interrupt a love due and snatch the lovers apart.
Goran Vejvoda's computer score
is a montage of interviews with Duchamp, commentary in several languages, popular songs of yesterday, snippets of "ready made" radio music and voice-overs.
Is Paysage a quest for the secret of art itself--where impulse and thought intersect Is it perhaps a parable about our tumultuous century--its ubiquitous violence and its intellectual prowess In Duchamp's words: "the picture is made as much by the person looking at it as by the artist."

Angelin Preljocaj's Dance ?}
by Dominique Fretard
---i hen he left the company of Dominique Bagouet, Angelin Preljocaj was surprised with his choice of dance subjects: the statutory tribute to the dead in A nos heros (1988), the heroism of Jeanne d'Arc in Hallali Romee (1987), and the solitude of sex in Liqueurs de Chair (1988). Previously, he had won the Competition Bagnolet with Marche Noir, a satirical title with which he gave his opinion about competitions in general. As for Larmes Blanches in 1985, his writing camel
into1 its'own:' musical, abstract,'sure of itself.'
Then he wanted to take a risk: that of -inscribing his dance into the history of choreography since its creation in the seven?teenth century. He was open to all historical influences. j_
So, he choreographed Romeo et Juliette (1990) for the "Ballet de l'Opera National de Lyon" with scenery by Enki Bilal, then Le Pare (1994) for the "Ballet de l'Opera de Paris," a complex voyage in the country of tenderness. With the same spirit, he present?ed a "re-visitation" of Noces of Parade, of Spectre de la Rose, an undertaking that he entitled Hommage aux Ballets Russes (1993).i,
At the Festival of Chateauvallon, and then in Avignon, he created a ballet from a book by the writer Pascal Guignard: a suc?cessful musical tragedy, the audacious -L'Anoure (1995).
In ten years, Preljocaj has traced his ow. singular and original path. Today, he is amon a handful of European choreographers who are remarkably well respected in their native,, countries as well as internationally.
Excerpt from "La Danse en France 1996"Jf Chronicle of the AFAA ??
allet Preljocaj was founded L: I December 1984 at the Centre ;j Choregraphique National de Champigny-sur-Marne and is
___ now established at the "Cite du' '
Livre" in Aix-en-Provence.
Since the founding of his company, now composed of twenty-two dancers, Angelin Preljocaj has created more than ? twenty works, seven of which are currently .:, in the Ballet's active repertory. Preljocaj's work has been hailed in the US through its tours of Romeo and Juliet and the Diaghilev Program. His work La Stravaganza created for New York City ballet was a huge success and he received a "Bessie" (New York Dance!
and Performance Award) for his duet, The Annunciation. The next work he will be creating is The Rite of Spring, scheduled to premiere this summer.
Tonight's performance marks Ballet Preljocaj's UMS debut.

Overture to L'ltaliana in Algeri
(The Italian Woman in Algiers)
Gioachino Rossini
Born February 29, 1792 in Pesaro, Italy
Died November 13, 1868 in Paris
Written when Gioachino Rossini was only twenty-one years old, L'ltaliana in Algeri was preceded by no fewer than ten operas written in four years. It was his greatest success to date, and it is the first of his operas to have entered the standard repertory. (It was first performed in North America in 1832.)
L'ltaliana in Algeri came three years before Rossini's greatest hit, The Barber of Seville. In The Barber of Seville, Rossini took on a subject that had been previously treated' in Giovanni Paisiello's opera of the same name, raising more than a few eyebrows. In L'ltaliana in Algeri, the young Rossini was similarly audacious, setting a libretto that had been used by Luigi Mosca, a composer forgotten now but popular in his own day. Mosca's version was played with great success at La Scala in Milan just five years earlier, in 1808.
The story is about a young woman named Isabella, whose lover Lindoro was captured by Mustafa, the Bey of Algiers, and she arrives on the shores of North Africa to rescue him. It is one of Rossini's great col?oratura mezzo-soprano parts, like Rosina in the original version of the Barber of Seville or the title role in Cenerentola.
The overture begins with eight mea?sures of soft string pizzicato (plucked) notes interrupted by a sudden orchestral forte not unlike the one that gave Haydn's Surprise Symphony (1791) its name. The pizzicato section now becomes the accompaniment to a graceful oboe theme. A short transition leads to the allegro section that bursts with rhythmic energy. Rossini's uncanny ability to be simple without being banal is evident throughout, as one magnificent melody fol?lows another, culminating in the obligatory Rossini crescendo at the end.
Concerto in C Major for Piano, Violin, Cello and Orchestra, Op. 56
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany.
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna 1
Musicologists have searched far and wide and have not found another concerto with . piano, violin, and cello. How fortunate foHS us that the only composer to have tried this combination, and thus to have provided an opportunity for touring piano trios to appear with orchestras, was none other than Ludwig van Beethoven! Concertos for mul-..., tiple solo instruments, such as Mozart's H Sinfonia concertante for violin and viola, or Haydn's for violin, cello, oboe and bassoon, usually feature winds and string instru3J ments. The keyboard, with its all-encomM passing harmonic possibilities, and its cotvM plete range covering all the registers from 9 the highest to the lowest, seemed in most 9 cases to be self-sufficient and to demand M undivided attention. X
Was it that the Archduke Rudolph, jg Beethoven's talented pupil, was not quite ready to take on a solo piano concerto The youngest son of Emperor Leopold II, K Rudolph was for many years one of . JB Beethoven's most ardent supporters who ""8 received the dedication of more works by J the master than anyone else. It has long been thought that the "Triple" Concerto was written with his participation in mind, even though in the end, he did not play in the _, first performance. (The technical demands of the piano part are much lighter than those of Beethoven's solo piano concertos.) The "Triple" Concerto comes at the heels of the "Eroica" Symphony and stylistically j? belongs to Beethoven's "middle" period, yet it doesn't conform to the image of Beethoven, the heaven-storming hero, that was so dear to critics from the Romantic era down to the present day. The unusual instrumenta?tion and the deceptively "unproblematic"
nature of the music have caused some critics to regard the "Triple" Concerto as a lesser work, yet the quality of the writing is wor?thy of Beethoven in every bar.
The very beginning of the work is unique, with its unaccompanied cello-and-bass melody. After the orchestra has suc?cinctly presented the first movement's the?matic material, the solo section begins. The first solo instrument to enter is the cello, followed by the violin and, lastly, by the piano. The cello part, written for the promi?nent virtuoso Anton Kraft, remains the leader much of the time. It often moves in a high register, so that it is never overshad?owed by the other soloists or the orchestra. (This also causes the solo violin to move to its extreme high register, to keep the two timbres separate.) In multiple concertos, each theme is normally played by each solo . instrument in turn, which results in fre?quent repeats and in a musical form that is j less goal-oriented than what we see in most ' middle-period works of Beethoven. Mozart ; and Haydn had written "collective cadenzas"! in their respective symphonies concertantes; Beethoven did not do so, but instead pro?vided plenty of virtuosic opportunities for ? his players throughout the movement. ;
The cello, once more, begins the sec'i ond-movement, "Largo." The key is A-flat ' Major, rather distant from the main key of ,? C Major, but Beethoven provides a subtle i link by emphasizing the note 'C,' which, as the third of the chord, plays an important " part in A-flat Major as well. As in the Piano : Sonata Op. 53 in C Major ("Waldstein"), written around the same time, the slow '? movement is relatively short and functions., mainly as a transition to the ensuing ' "Rondo alia Polacca." The rhythm of the Polacca (or Polonaise) dance dominates the entire movement, ensuring its light-hearted nature. Before the end, the meter unexpect?edly changes to 24, and the Polacca melody , briefly takes on the character of a wild chase between the three instruments. The stately !
Polacca rhythm is restored, however, to con?clude the piece.
Suite for Strings
Leos Janacek
Born July 3, 1854 in Hukvaldy, Moravia '"
(Austrian Empire)
Died August 12, 1928 in Moravskd Ostrava
Since Janacek wrote most of his greatest . music after his sixtieth birthday (in the 1910s and '20s), he is usually thought of as a twentieth-century composer. His early work is still insufficiently known, and it may j ''": come as a surprise to some that his first ''?'--'?a instrumental composition, the Suite for Strings, actually predates the Brahms Violin Concerto by one year.
The twenty-three-year-old Janacek had just returned to Brno, the capital of his .j ' native province of Moravia, after a stint at the Prague Organ School. He still considered his studies to be incomplete, and in 1879-80 he travelled to Leipzig and Vienna for fur?ther instruction. The Suite for Strings was written while Janacek was serving as a young music teacher in Brno; there was as yet no telling how far he would eventually go.
Inevitably, the six-movement Suite shows echoes of Smetana and Dvorak, the two greatest Czech composers of the day (though one must remember that even Dvorak hadn't written many of his greatest works at this point!). Yet Janacek did not follow his models slavishly; in particular, he took a different path than Dvorak had in his popular Serenade for Strings (1875), which Janacek conducted shortly before composing his Suite. Whereas Dvorak kept to a light serenade style, avoiding dramatic passion and great harmonic or structural complexi?ties, Janacek did not eschew more intense or serious moments (as at the very beginning of the work). Yet, side by side with studies in Wagnerian chromaticism, there are also
episodes of utter simplicity, evoking the dance suites of the Baroque period.
The first movement ("Moderato") opens with an austere introduction, fol?lowed by long, sweeping melodies and lan?guid harmonies. The second-movement "Adagio," scored only for violins and violas, is deceptively simple with unexpected har?monic twists. The third movement, mas?querading as a Baroque bourree, neverthe?less strikes a "Slavonic" note, as one Czech commentator has pointed out. (Janacek had this movement performed independently by a string quartet at his school.) The fourth movement, the most substantial of the work, is a scherzo, apparently inspired by Schubert and Beethoven, but also heavily "Slavicized." It is followed by a brooding "Adagio," dominated by the cellos and bass?es, and a gentle finale in an unusually slow andante tempo and in a different key than the opening movement, which was almost unheard of in 1877. The absence of a fast ending and a failure to return to the initial key leave the suite curiously open-ended. A sign of experimentation or inexperience Probably both. It is significant that Janacek did not publish this work until 1926, almost fifty years after it had been written, but he did agree to release it as an important, if somewhat immature, stage in his evolution "as a composer."
Symphony No. 4 in A Major, Op. 90
Felix Mendelssohn
Born February 3, 1809 in Hamburg, Germany
Died November 4, 1847 in Leipzig
Although traditionally designated as Symphony No. 4, the "Italian" Symphony was actually completed third of Mendelssohn's five symphonies for full orchestra. The numbering reflects the order of publication, rather than the order of composition.
During his stay in Italy in 1830-31, Mendelssohn worked on two symphonies
simultaneously. One was intended to cap?ture the composer's current impressions of Italy, the other to reflect on his journey to Scotland back in 1829. The Roman climate being hardly conducive to work on a Northern subject, it is no wonder that Mendelssohn finished the "Italian" Symphony first (he himself referred to it by that name). The "Scottish" Symphony was not completed until much later, in 1842.
The two symphonies seem to comple?ment one another in several ways. Not only were they inspired by two completely differ?ent landscapes, some of their musical char?acteristics are also in contrast. The "Scottish" Symphony is in a minor with a last move' ment ending in A Major, while the "Italian" Symphony is in A Major with an a-minor finale (it is much more unusual to end a major-key symphony with a finale in the minor than the other way around). "i
Without any introduction, the first movement of the "Italian" Syhpony begins with an exuberant wind fanfare, immediate?ly followed by a violin melody bursting with youthful energy. The movement is in regular } sonata form, with contrasting second theme, development and recapitulation. The devel?opment section contains a scherzo-like new theme in minor, which returns in the move?ment's coda.
& The second-movement, "Andante con moto," is usually said to have been inspired by a processional song and is occasionally dubbed "March of the Pilgrims." Eric Werner, in his book on Mendelssohn, proposed a different interpretation, noting the strong resemblance between the first theme of the i movement and the song "Es war ein Konig jj in Thule" (There was a King in Thule) by J Mendelssohn's teacher Carl Friedrich Zelter. This song is an excerpt from Goethe's Faust, q where Gretchen sings it as a ballad about a i king in a distant land who has lost his
beloved. The minor-mode melody, whose j undeniable hymn-like flavor is emphasized jj by contrapuntal treatment, is followed by an J
easily flowing second theme in major; a short motto, consisting of only two different notes, opens and closes the movement.
The third movement, "Con moto mod-erato," is really a minuet with Trio, although Mendelssohn didn't designate it as such. The minuet section looks back on the days of Haydn and Mozart with a touch of nos?talgia; the Trio, with its Romantic horn sonorities and puckish violin-and-flute theme, is more distinctly Mendelssohnian. After the recapitulation of the minuet, the Trio theme is hinted at once more, but instead of a full reprise of the Trio, the movement ends suddenly in a hushed pianissimo.
if The presto finale is titled "Saltarello" after an Italian folk dance. Of its two main melodies, the first one is indeed a bouncing saltarello; the other is a ceaselessly running tarantella. The dance character dominates the entire finale. It is only near the end that a more lyrical and slower-moving motif appears, but it is soon swept away by the returning saltarello rhythm......... .,..-?'.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
ach musician is a maestro," herald?ed an American critic during the first North American tour of the Prague Chamber Orchestra
_____Without Conductor (translation of
its full Czech title). An ensemble of thirty-six musicians, the Orchestra plays without a conductor, sustained instead by the superb musicianship of each player, and is renowned for its exquisite precision, intona?tion and balance. In rehearsal and perfor?mance, each individual contributes as an interpreter, similar to more intimate cham?ber music ensembles. The Orchestra's reper?toire ranges from Baroque to the twentieth century and often includes compositions of today's leading and active composers.
The Prague Chamber Orchestra holds a
unique and leading place among the orches?tras of the Czech Republic. In 1951, first-desk players of the Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra in Prague came together to find a smaller orchestra suitable for performing ? works of Bohemian composers of the classical period.
The Orchestra's quality received imme?diate recognition at home, when on June 14, 1952 it appeared at the Prague Spring Festival. The advent of the Orchestra came at a time when there was a move away from large symphony orchestras playing Baroque and early Classical period music, so its pio?neering excellence in this field was well received. Due to the growth of its activities, it became increasingly difficult for the members to also continue their work with Czech Radio Symphony Orchestra. By 1965, the Prague Chamber Orchestra became a state-funded independent body. After the ' collapse of the Communist system in 1989, it was necessary to look for a new status for the Orchestra, and in 1991 the members m took over the management of the orchestra and set up their own concert agency. '
The Prague Chamber Orchestra is made up of twelve violins, four violas, four cellos, and two double basses, along with double wind and brass of flutes, oboes, clar?inets, bassoons, horns, trumpets, and tim?pani. The repertoire of the Orchestra is j based first and foremost on the major Classical works of Haydn, Mozart, and J Beethoven. It reaches back to the High j Baroque period with the music of Bach, j?j_ Handel, and Vivaldi, as well as forward into the early Romantic period with works by Schubert and Mendelssohn. S
The Orchestra's repertoire also includes music of the twentieth century, such as the. neoclassical works of Britten, Honegger, S Prokofiev, and Stravinsky. Alongside these works is a repertoire from Czech composers including the Benda family, Dusek, Jirovec, Kozeluh, Rejcha, Michna, Myslivecek, the Stamic family, Vanhal, Vorisck, the Vranicky
brothers, and Zelenka. Compositions by' Dvorak, Janacek, and Martinii are naturally".. included from the later period, as are those of later Czech composers, many of whom have written works especially for the Prague Chamber Orchestra.
The New York Times characterized the Orchestra as a "marvelous precision instru?ment." The Washington Post described the ensemble's musical sound as "light, clear, perfectly articulated and fresh as a spring gust of wind." Rome's Giornale d'ltalia wrote: "They demonstrated the highest form of artistic discipline, not blind and passive discipline to a conductor but an ,.,. enlightened and conscious one." "I
Tonight's performance marks the Prague Chamber Orchestra's sixth appearance under UMS auspices.
----ecognized for over forty years as
having set the standard for perfori mance of piano trio literature, the ; Beaux Arts Trio continues to ignite i overwhelming enthusiasm from audiences around the world. From the US to :. Russia, from Japan to Germany, from Israel to Brazil, this renowned ensemble's extensive, engagements have brought it the highest j praise. The Trio has received ovations from ; all of the world's major music centers , ' including New York, Boston, Chicago, jj Washington DC, London, Paris, Berlin, "j Munich, Vienna, Amsterdam, Moscow, Tel Aviv, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Sydney. Chosen as Musical America's "Ensemble of the Year" in 1997, the Trio has been invited and re; invited by these centers for over 100 concerts; and master classes each year. The Beaux Arts .j Trio's superb musicians, distinguished histo-; ry, comprehensive repertoire and expansive discography, contribute to its reputation as a hallmark of chamber music. ir
The Beaux Arts Trio, comprised of pianist Menahem Pressler, violinist Young
Uck Kim and cellist Antonio Meneses, con-i tinues the musical tradition which saw its ; official public debut at the 1955 Berkshire Music Festival, known today as the JBjjf Tanglewood Festival. Each member of the' Trio brings a highly acclaimed and exem' plary musical career to this ensemble, form?ing one of chamber music's most powerful collaborations. '-'.
JHP: Through the years, the Beaux Arts Trio has maintained its freshness, while preserv?ing its distinctive musical heritage. Founded by Menahem Pressler, Daniel Guilet, and J5_ Bernard Greenhouse, the Trio has evolved from the replacement of Guilet in 1969 with violinist Isidore Cohen, and the replacement of Greenhouse with cellist Peter Wiley in 1987. In June 1992, the Trio made its debut with violinist Ida Kavafian, in two extraordi?nary performances of Beethoven's "Triple" Concerto with the Gewandhaus Orchestra of Leipzig under Maestro Kurt Masur. The Beaux Arts Trio's mark in American culture is far-reaching. The ensemble has played a major and ongoing I role in the programs of important cultural'! and educational centers throughout North America, with annual concert series at such revered institutions as the Metropolitan q Museum of Art in New York, the Celebrity ' Series of Boston, and the Library of Congress, where the Trio is in residence. Its repeated annual engagements extend to numerous
associations and chamber music series. The Trio's regular university performances include appearances at Harvard, Princeton, Yale, Johns Hopkins, Berkley, the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, and the University of Michigan.
The Beaux Arts Trio's many landmark projects include its participation in the "December Evenings" Festival in Moscow, at the invitation of Maestro Sviatoslav Richter, and a performance at the 1988 Summer Olympics in Seoul, South Korea. Several contemporary composers have written pieces for the Trio. Among the Trio's recent premieres are Ned Rorem's Spring Music, commissioned by Carnegie Hall as part of . Carnegie's Centennial Celebration; George ?! Rochberg's Summer, 1990, commissioned byj the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society;
and David N. Baker's Roots II, commis?sioned by the McKim Foundation.
The Beaux Arts Trio's extensive discogra-phy on Philips Records encompasses the entire piano trio literature. The Trio's record?ings have brought several coveted awards. The Beaux Arts Trio continues its exclusive relationship with Philips, and its last record?ing of music by Spanish composers was nominated for a Grammy in 1998.
Tonight's performance marks the Beaux Arts Trio's tenth appearance under UMS auspices. The ensemble made its UMS debut on February 25, 1962 and last appeared together in Ann Arbor on March 26, 2000 at Rackham Auditorium. Tonight's performance marks Menahem Pressler's twelfth appearance under UMS auspices.

t Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine: [ Cum Sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es. ?r: Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine: Et lux perpetua luceat eis.
Let eternal light shine upon them, Lord, with Thy saints forever, for Thou art merciful. Grant them eternal rest, Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Ein Deutsche Motet, Op. 62
Richard Strauss (Friedrich Riickert)
Die Schopfung ist zur Ruh' gegangen,
o wach in mir! Es will der Schlaf mich befangcn,
o wach in mir! Du Auge, das am Himmel wacht mit
Sternenblick, Wenn mir die Augen zugegangcn,
o wach in mir! Du Licht, im Ather hoher strahlend
als Sonn' und Mond. Wenn Sonn und Mond ist ausgegangen,
o wach in mir! Wenn sich der Sinne Tor geschlossen
der Aufienwelt, So lafi die Seel' in sich nicht bangen,
o wach in mir! O lafi im feuchten Hauch der Nachte,
im Schattendunst Nicht sprossen stindiges Verlangen,
o wach in mir! LaS aus dem Duft von Edens Zwoigen,
lafi in meinen Traum. Die Frucht dcs Lebens miederhangen,
o wach in mir! O zeig mir, mich zu erquicken, im Traum
das Werk Vollendet, das ich angefangen,
o wach in mir! In deinem Schofie will ich schlummern, bis
neu mich weckt Die Morgenrote deiner Wangen,
o wach in mir!
All creation has settled to rest;
watch over me! Sleep is about to embrace me;
watch over me! O eye, watching in the heavens with
starry gaze, when my eyes have closed,
watch over me! 0 light, shining in the firmament brighter
than any sun or moon, when sun and moon have set,
watch over me! When the gates of the sense have closed
against the outside world keep my soul from becoming frightened;
watch over me!
0 let not sinful longing breed
the humid breath Of night in the shadowy haze;
watch over me! In my dreams let the fruit of life hang
under the scent of Eden's branches;
watch over me! Show me to refresh me in my dream
The work completed that I have begun; watch over me!
1 will slumber in your bosom until I am
again by the morning blush upon your cheek; watch over me!
Libera me
Ingvar Lidholtn
Libera me, Domine,
de morte aeterna
in die ilia tremenda,
quando coeli movendi sunt et terra,
dum veneris judicare
saeculum per ignem.
Tremens factus sum ego
et timeo dum discussio venerit
atque venture ira,
quando coeli movendi sunt et terra
Dies irae, dies ilia, calamitatis et miseriae, dies magna et amara valde, dum veneris judicare saeculum per igncm.
Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis. '
Deliver me, O Lord,
from eternal death
in that awful day,
when the heavens and the earth shall be shaken,
when thou shalt come to judge
the world by fire.
I am seized with fear and trembling,
until the trial shall be at hand,
and the wrath to come,
when the heavens and the earth shall be shaken.
That day, a day of wrath, of calamity and of misery, a great day and exceeding bitter, when thou shalt come to judge the world by fire.
Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them.
Concerto for Mixed Chorus

O Master of all living, Bestowing priceless gifts upon us, God creating all out of nothing, Mysterious, omniscient, frightening, Merciful and implacable, Ineffable and inscrutable, Invisible, eternal, boundless, Terrifying and beneficent. You are unfathomable, intangible, Without beginning and without end, You are the only one who is measureless, Who is true and real in the world, It is you who give us blessing, You are a noon without nightfall,
light without shadow, Our only fountain of peace That lightens our temporal existence. You are limitless and omnipresent, Our sweetest honey and daily bread, An inexhaustible treasure, purest rain, Forever plentiful might, You are a guardian and guide to us, A healer knowing our ills, Support to all, an all-seeing eye, A hand of abundant giving, Radiant with greatness, welcome to all, Our tireless shepherd, benevolent tsar, All-seeing, vigilant day and night, A judge dispensing fair judgement, A non-oppressive gaze, a voice of comfort, You are a message bringing peace. Your forbidding hand and all-seeing eye Warn mortals against vice, A judge of what is right and wrong, A glory that inspires no envy, You are a light to us, a greatness without
A path, invisible but straight. Your imprint is invisible, we can only see

It descends on us on earth from heaven, The words that I pronounce glorifying You Are poorer than those You should have heard, O God, by right, Had I not been so poor in speech.
God blessed, praised,
Glorified by all living in the universe,
All we are destined to achieve
Is born by Your wise inspiration.
O God, show me in my doubts
The path of purity
And, guiding me to the gates of salvation,
Be content and rejoice.
The purpose of Your slave's paean
Is not glorification or eulogy,
My worthless words are a supplication
By which I long to obtain salvation.
I, an expert in human passions, Composed this collection of songs, where
every verse
Is full to the brim with black sorrow, For I detest these passions in myself. I wrote so that my words could reach Christians in all corners of the earth, I wrote for those who only enter life As well as for those who have lived and
For those completing their earthly journey And stepping over the fateful limit. I wrote for the righteous and for sinners, For the comforting and the inconsolable, For the judging and the convicted, For the penitent and those enslaved by sin, For do-gooders and villains, For virgins and adulterers, For all: the high-born and the godless, Downtrodden slaves and grand princess. I wrote equally for husbands and wives, For the degraded and those risen high, For rulers and for the oppressed, For abusers and for the abused,
Pisal ravno dl'a konnykh i

For those who give comfort and those who
are comforted, I wrote equally for those on horseback and
on foot,
For the insignificant and for the great, For city-dwellers and half-savages highlanders, And for him who is the supreme ruler,
whose judge is God alone, For people who are vain and those who
are pious, For monks and holy hermits.
May these verses, full of my suffering, Become a guidance to someone.
May he who repents a black transgression
Find comfort in my writings.
May someone turn to his good
My work, my zeal.
May my verse, turning into a prayer and
a supplication, Elicit God's mercy.
God, grant deliverance from sin
To all who grasp the meaning of these
mournful words,
All who comprehend the essence of this work. Free them from the baneful fetters Of doubt, which is the same as crime. Give them the absolution they long for, Let their abundant tears flow. May their supplication, raised in my voice, Please You.
May they also raise a prayer For me, Your slave,
God, may Your light and grace descend Upon You obedient slaves, All the repentant who read With sympathy this book of mournful songs! If You receive all those who in my wake Come to You with my zealous prayer, Open the fates of Your holy abode To me too, O merciful God. And if my tearful prayer

Falls, like rain, washing away sins, May this water of life also wash me, Your base slave.
O God, if You save all those
Agreeing with the thoughts that I express,
Forgive my grave sins
And save me too, O blessed God.
If my song inspires in some soul
Thoughts pleasing to You,
My heavenly Father,
Do not deprive me of Your grace,
If those who comprehend my verse
Raise their trembling hands--
May the pain of my sorrowful moans
Join their pure prayer,
And if the thoughts expressed in this book
Are pleasing to You,
Be merciful to my ancestors
In Your generous grace,
If someone poor in spirit
Wavers in the holy faith in a moment of grief,
May he find support in this book
And, taking heart, put his trust in You.
If someone weak in faith begins to fear That the temple of his hope will not hold out, May Your hand strengthen that unstable temple With the lines of this mournful book. When someone cruelly tormented by an illness Almost loses his bond with life, May he find strength in these lines And rise again, praying to You.
If deadly fear or doubt Suddenly seizes someone, May he find solace in this book, May he find peace by Your grace.
And if the burden of unredeemed sins
Pulls a sinner into the abyss, may he,
By the power of the words that You inspired
in me, Be saved and pardoned forever.

If somewhere there is a sinner
Who does not escape the Devil's trap--
Allow my work to be his support
And set the madman right with Your own light.
And if someone in fatal pride Is ready to forget the words of holy prayers. Allow me to bring him back to the sacred faith By the power of the words that You inspired.
Allow my book of sorrowful songs To bring back to the Eucharist and the Cross Those who persist in their contemptible vanity In satanic blindness. And let my song, Inspired by your divine mercy, Calm the storm of unbelief That rages, as over the water, over people's souls.
Complete this work
Which I began in hope
And with Your name,
So that my singing may become healing,
Curing the wounds of body and soul.
If my humble work is finished
With Your holy blessing--
May the divine spirit in it
Join with my meager inspiration,
Do not extinguish
The revelation You have granted,
Do not abandon my reason,
But, again and again, receive praise
From Your servant.
