U MS leadership
I 'm delighted to welcome you to this performance presented by the University Musical Society (UMS) of the University of Michigan. Thank you for supporting the performing arts in our community by your attendance at this event. Please consider coming to some of our other performances this season. You'll find a complete listing beginning on page 29.
I am particularly excited about the three-week residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company in March 2001. Three years in development, the RSC residency represents the largest international project ever under?taken by UMS in our 122-year history. UMS is especially grateful for the personal interest and involvement of University of Michigan President Lee C. Bollinger and for the leading financial support of the University of Michigan and the State of Michigan in this historic project. The presentation of William Shakespeare's History Plays, along with the extensive educational programs that sur?round the performances, takes place only in Ann Arbor and in Stratford-upon-Avon and London in England. We are pleased to welcome theater lovers from all over North America who are taking advantage of this exclusive 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, ?j 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. :S
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

U MS annals
he goal of the University Musical Society (UMS) is to engage, edu?cate, and serve Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 121 years, strong leader-. ship coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally_ recognized performing arts presenters. Indeed, Musical America selected UMS as one of the five most influential arts presenters in the United States in 1999. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in the new millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts. UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University
Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and ; University Orchestra, and throughout the i year presented a series of concerts featuring i local and visiting artists and ensembles. ;
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has i 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 j! and innovation. UMS now hosts over eighty ;i performances and more than 150 educational i events each season. UMS has flourished with j 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 i 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. ?
f hroughout its 121-year history, the University Musical Society Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distinguished orchestras ? _ and conductors.
Based in Ann Arbor under the aegis of the 5 University Musical Society, the 150-voice I Choral Union is known for its definitive per-7 formances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Seven years ago, the Choral fj Union further enriched that tradition when jj began appearing regularly with the Detroit y 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
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 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, and the reverberant sanctuary has i. made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and contempla?tion of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
otwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS recently began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with UMS' programmatic initiative to present song in recital, the superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has become a recent venue addition to UMS' roster and the home of the Song Recital series as well as the venue for the world premiere of Curse of the Gold: Myths from the Icelandic Edda, part of UMS' new International Theater Festival.
Detroit Opera House
'he Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000 square foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's
great opera houses, the 2,800-seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted the?atres in the nation. In only two sea?sons, the Detroit Opera House became the foundation of a land?mark programming collaboration with the Nederlander organization and Olympia Entertainment, formed a partnership with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and played host to more than 500 per?formers and special events. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality pro?gramming, partnerships and educa?tional initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Burton Memorial Tower ,___________
een from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor land?marks. Completed in 1935 and designed by Albert Kahn, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet.
The familiar home of UMS Administrative offices undergoes significant renovations this season, moving the UMS Box Office to a new, temporary location in the Power Center.
UMS Administrative offices have also been relocated--to 109 E. Madison--but please continue to use our Burton Memorial Tower mailing address.

Concerto Grosso in a minor.
Op. 6, No. 4, HWV 322 j.
George Frideric Handel
Born February 23, 1685 in Halle, Germany
Died April 14, 1759 in London
The London Daily Post announced to its readership on October 29,1739:
This day are published proposals for printing by subscription with His Majesty's royal license and protection, Twelve Grand Concertos in seven parts, for four violins, a tenor [equal to a viola], a violoncello, with a thorough?bass for the harpsichord. Composed by Mr. Handel. Price to subscribers two guineas. Ready to be delivered by April next. Subscriptions are taken by the author at his house in Brook Street, Hanover Square.
As Christopher Hogwood writes in his Handel monograph (Thames & Hudson, '$$ 1984), the concerti grossi "were deliberately designed to compete in a field dominated by Corelli's Op. 6." The concerto form perfect?ed by Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713), with its juxtaposition of a three-member con?certino with the larger instrumental group (the ripieno), was extremely popular in England, where one of Corelli's most distin?guished pupils, Francesco Geminiani (1687-1762) lived. Handel, too, had known Corelli in person, having met him at Rome in 1707. There is an amusing story of how the twen?ty-two-year-old Handel grabbed the fifty-four-year-old Corelli's violin and showed him how he wanted a certain passage to be executed. The older man apologized with typical understatement: "But my dear Saxon, this music is in the French style, which I do not understand." (It was the overture for Trionfo del Tempo [The Triumph of Time] by Handel.)
Thirty years later, Handel took a break from the writing of monumental oratorios
to compose his Opus 6, in which he both competed with and paid homage to Corelli, while carrying the Corellian concerto grosso idea a great deal further.
The fourth concerto opens with a "Largo affettuoso" whose ornate melody is like an instrumental aria for the first violins. The concertino and the ripieno play identical parts. They separate for the first time halfway through the subsequent fugal "Allegro," to introduce some playful echo effects that counterbalance the seriousness of the contrapuntal texture that otherwise predominates. The brief "Largo e piano" is a string quartet avant la lettrr. it would lose nothing if played by four solo strings, indi?cating that, in 1739, we are not far from the birth of a new genre that will change the j) entire landscape of classical music. Dancelike rhythms, high energy, and extensive J solo-tutti alternations characterize the finale whose advanced techniques of motivic development has also suggested the dawn of a new age to commentators.
Concerto for Oboe in d minor.
Op. 9, No. 2 '"
Tommaso Albinoni
Born June 8, 1671 in Venice "??"?
Died January 17, 1751 in Venice
Tommaso Albinoni was known as the diet-: ? tante veneto--a composer of independent ?"-._ means who had been trained as a profession2j al composer but did not need to depend on I employment as a musician. Although he wrote a great deal of vocal music (operas and cantatas), his fame rests on his instrumental f output, mostly concertos and sonatas. His 1 Opus 9, published in Amsterdam in 1722, fJ marked the zenith of his career. This impos?ing set of twelve concertos (four for violin, four for oboe, and four for two oboes) was dedicated to the Elector of Bavaria, which
resulted in an invitation for Albinoni to visit Munich where several of his operas were pro?duced. Oboists owe Albinoni some of the finest Baroque music written for their instru?ment (he included oboe concerti in his earli?er set of twelve concertos, Op. 7, as well).
Op. 9, No. 2 is one of Albinoni's best-known works. The outer movements fill out Baroque concerto form with elegant and attractive musical ideas, but the distinguish?ing feature is the beautiful "Adagio"--twice as long as the average slow movement in the composer's other concerti. Since the popular g minor "Adagio" that is so often performed under Albinoni's name is a twentieth-centu?ry imitation by Remo Giazotto, it is fitting to see this beautiful instrumental cantilena as the Albinoni "Adagio" we want to know the composer by. ----------------------?
Nisi Dominus (Psalm 126), RV 608
Antonio Vivaldi ?
Born March 4, 1678 in Venice
Died July 28, 1741 in Vienna __________
In addition to his 500-odd concertos and some fifty operas, Vivaldi found time to write a great deal of solo vocal music, both sacred and secular. These include large-scale works with chorus (such as the popular Gloria) and compositions for a single solo voice accom-..-.? panied by different instrumental forces. j? He composed a whole series of psalm . 'settings, which remained unpublished durj jfing his lifetime and only survive in undated j}manuscripts. Nisi Dominus (Psalm 126) H stands out from these by its use of the viola d'amore as a solo instrument. (This special ?.. instrument, favored throughout the eigh?teenth century, usually had seven playing strings and seven more resonating strings; if combined features of the violin and viol gj$families.) The entire psalm is set for only one singer, an alto. The verses of the psalm are set as separate movements in a highly ;
ornate, concertant style where both the singer and the viola d'amore player share the role of the protagonist. -j
Chaconne in g minor, Z 730 "??
Henry Purcell '"' ''
Born 1659 in London Died November 21, 1695 in Dean's Yard, Westminster
A chaconne is a set of variations over a recurrent ground bass or a recurrent har?monic progression. Henry Purcell, the great English composer, was very fond of this form, which he used in several of his stage works, and in Dido and Aeneas in particular. The present "Chacony" (to use the original spelling) is an independent piece, in which the composer handled the variation form with remarkable freedom and virtuosity. In addition to altering the rhythm and orna?menting the melody, he varied the instru?mentation as well, omitting the bass in some of the variations and at one point assigning the bass melody to the treble.
Concerto Grosso in F Major, Op. 6, No. 9, HWV327
Handel ,----.-------_-._?-.-.-,,
This work combines the forms of the con?certo grosso with that of the suite, since the usual four movements of the concerto are followed by two dances, a minuet and a gigue. The opening "Largo" develops a sin?gle rhythmic idea through a series of key _ changes. The second movement, a lively "Allegro" with delightful solo-tutti alterna?tions, is a revised version of an organ con?certo Handel had composed earlier in the year 1739. The concerto was known as "The Cuckoo and the Nightingale;" the imitations of the cuckoo's call can be clearly heard in the concerto grosso version as well. The.
third-movement "Larghetto," in siciliano rhythm, was adapted from the same organ concerto (the so-called Second Set, No. 1). Next comes a fugue on a very agile subject, in which concertino and ripieno are once ,i again united. 1
The short minuet is rather unusual in' the way it switches from the minor to the major mode in midstream; it also lacks a . middle section (Minuet II or Trio). The closing "Gigue" is playful and light-hearted.
Ich habe genug, BWV 82
Johann Sebastian Bach ;;
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
The majority of Bach's 200-plus sacred cantatas are large-scale works with chorus ,li-soloists and sizable instrumental forces, ?, written for the weekly Sunday service or special occasions. Yet--depending perhaps '?'?. on the availability of forces on a given day--, some cantatas are scored more modestly, . and six call for only one singer. One of these , is Ich habe genug (I have enough), originally ' scored for bass voice, and first performed on.; the feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, February 2,1727, at St. Thomas' I church in Leipzig. At least two movements of this cantata must have been written as early as 1725, because they appear in the second notebook for Anna Magdalena Bach compiled that year--in an arrangement for Bach's second wife, an accomplished sopra?no, who probably performed these passages.
The cantata consists of three arias separated by two recitatives. The first and last arias feature an oboe in a virtuosic solo role. The lyrics, by an unknown author, express the joy of the pious soul at joining the Saviour after death--a paraphrase of Simeon's canticle (Luke 2:29-32), part of the! Gospel reading for that day. The opening motif of the first movement is strongly rem-
iniscent of the alto aria "Erbarme dichnt ' (Have mercy) from the St. Matthew Passion, which was first performed in the same yeajv (1727) as the cantata. The second aria, a sacred lullaby, expresses the blissful going to sleep, while the last one, an extremely florid piece, exults at the thought of the much-awaited passage into a better world. ?K!

Overture to Ala'na
George Frideric Handel ':v;...t.w.i';-,.j Born February 23,1685 in Halle, Germany Died April 14, 1759 in London
The thirty-fourth of Handel's forty-two operas, Alcina takes its subject from Ludovico Ariosto's famous sixteenth-centu?ry epic, Orlando furioso. It was first per?formed at Covent Garden on April 16,1735. Alcina is a sorceress who keeps the hero Ruggiero under her spell, while the fair maiden Bradamante tries to free her beloved from Alcina's enchanted island. The overture to this opera follows the form of the French overture, in which a slow introduction, using the characteristic dotted rhythm, is followed by a fast section employing contrapuntal imitation..,
Piano Concerto No. 17 in G Major, : K. 453 ,
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart "'?"
Born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg";........
Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
Mozart was certainly not the first to com?bine the piano and the orchestra. Yet it is i fair to say that with his twenty-seven piano '' concertos, Mozart single-handedly created a new genre, one that not only held a special place in his output but also influenced every composer of concertos coming after him. & Mozart's piano concertos may seem quite uniform at first sight: they are all in three movements (fast-slow-fast). The alter?nation of orchestral and solo sections tends f to be determined by more or less stable pat-1; terns. The woodwinds nearly always play a .: prominent role in the orchestral accompani-j ment; the first movements are the longest and the most complex, the second movements are lyrical, and the finales lively and f spirited. Nonetheless, the diversity behind i
this apparent uniformity is astonishing. Upon a closer look, no two concertos are alike in the details of elaboration, and Mozart's endless melodic and harmonic imagination endows every single work with a personality of its own.
The key of G Major is often perceived as genial, friendly, and cordial, and the first impression of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 17 will undoubtedly be consistent with that description. The opening theme is cheerful and brilliant: a happy melody in the first violins accompanied by bouncy eighth-notes in the lower strings and com?plemented by graceful woodwind passages. Soon, however, there is a change of mood, and we hear more plaintive, sigh-like melodies and startling, unexpected harmonies in the orchestra. After the entrance of the solo piano, the same duality between light?ness and emotional depth continues, with frequent shifts to minor keys and highly expressive modulations. This is a movement rich in surprises and of a high sensitivity. The woodwinds are treated as solo instru?ments throughout; the bassoon part, unusu?al in almost always diverging from the string bass, is particularly attractive.
The middle-movement "Andante" is a special gem among Mozart's slow move?ments. Its main melody combines simplicity and intimacy in a way unique even to Mozart. It then evolves into one of his har?monically boldest and most intricate pieces. The number and remoteness of the modula?tions are quite astonishing. There is much more beautiful soloistic writing for the woodwinds and some heart-gripping pas-sagework for the piano. Like the first move?ment, it is written in sonata form, and includes a piano cadenza at the end.
The third-movement finale is a theme with variations. The theme has reminded some commentators of Papageno from The Magic Flute. Although there is no direct ??_ connection (the opera was not written until
seven years later), the simple and popular nature of the melody does have something to do with the character of the famous bird-catcher.
The variations are six in number, but after the first, each variation is really two variations in one, effectively giving us eleven different "takes" on the original melody. Wherever there are repetitions in the theme, the variations have different versions for both the first and the second playing, resulting in a scintillating alternation between 1 piano and orchestra. Like most Classical works in this form, each variation concen?trates on a different type of motion or fea?tures a different instrument. The movement . explores a wide range of characters from .' tragic sentiments in the minor mode to a military march full of energy. The last varia?tion is in a faster tempo than the others, bringing the concerto to an energetic and exciting conclusion.
Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in d minor, BWV 1052
Johann Sebastian Bach
Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach
Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
Since the appearance of the solo concerto in the early 1700s, most concertos were written for the violin. The cello and various wind instruments were also occasionally given a chance. The harpsichord, however, was relegated to the role of Cinderella: always present as a continuo instrument, providing indispensable harmonic support, but rarely noticed as a separate entity. The reason for this may have been that early concerto writers such as Vivaldi and Torelli were string players; keyboard virtuosos such as Domenico Scarlatti had either no interest in writing concertos, or no opportunities to do so.
As far as we know, J.S. Bach was the first to write concertos for a keyboard instrument. The virtuoso harpsichord part in the Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 (which also includes solos for flute and violin) inaugurated a new genre that was destined for a great future. About a decade after the Brandenburg set, Bach wrote seven solo concertos for the harpsichord when he was the director of the Collegium Musicum that performed at Zimmermann's coffee house in Leipzig. But for some reason, he doesn't seem to have thought of the harpsichord string orchestra combination as an indepen?dent medium that could stand on its own feet: instead of composing original works, he merely transcribed some of his earlier concertos for the keyboard. For three of the seven, the originals are well known. The Brandenburg Concerto No. 4 (in G) became a harpsichord concerto in F Major; and the two violin concertos in a minor and E Major were reincarnated as harpsichord concertos in g minor and D Major, respectively.
For the other concertos, the originals have not survived. Nevertheless, scholars are sure they existed, and have even attempted reconstructions. In the case of the d-minor concerto, the keyboard part has many fea?tures that are conspicuously violinistic, such as the wide leaps in the theme and a partic?ular repeated-note pattern that would have been played to special effect on the violin, using alternating strings. But other details in the solo part, such as the arpeggios, are so idiomatic to the keyboard that a reconstruc?tion of the original violin version is by no means a mechanical task.
We don't know for sure when the origi?nal violin concerto was written, though we may assume that it was during the Cothen years (1717-1723), the period when Bach wrote his known violin concertos. In the 1720s, Bach used the musical material of the d-minor concerto in two of his church can?tatas. Cantata 146 opens with the first
movement of the concerto as an instrurheri tal introduction or Sinfonia, already featur? ing a solo keyboard instrument (the organ). The second movement of this cantata is identical to the second movement of the xoncerto, with the chorus singing the words "Wir mussen durch viel Triibsal in das Reich
s Gottes eingehen" (We must enter God's
kingdom through many tribulations). Another cantata, No. 188, uses the concerto's last movement as its Sinfonia, again with a concertant organ solo.
The Keyboard Concerto No. 1 in d minor is a remarkably daring work that treats
:,Baroque concerto form with a great deal of freedom: in one moment, the music follows
I a strict logic based on sequential progres-
Isions and consistent melodic development, ?:__ and in the next, it surprises us with an outburst of rhapsodic passagework. The unusu-alness starts right at the beginning: the ritor-nello, or recurrent theme, is played in uni?son, which enhances the dramatic power of the dissonant intervals (tritone, diminished sevenths, minor ninths) in which the theme abounds. It is one of the most passionate instrumental movements Bach ever wrote. IH Like the first movement, the "Adagio" jg Upstarts with a unison theme featuring wide &&? leaps, including dissonant ones. The melody
. as the soloist's right hand plays an extremely "' ornate singing melody, expressive of the line k about tribulations applied to this music in i " Cantata 146.
&" The finale doesn't quite have the chro1 ti matic asperities of the first two movements,:! but it is still not exactly a light movement.
Despite some playful elements in the rhythm, $$, the tensions never completely go away. 1 This concerto had a major influence on . Bach's son Carl Philipp Emanuel, who made
his own arrangement of it, and who devel-Pp'oped the dramatic side of his father's writJffii'' ing further in his own music. The highly 1 ipp,' charged emotional style of C.P.E. Bach in ,j
turn influenced the composers of the Classical era, including Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven.
Symphony No. 40 in g minor, K. 550
In the eighteenth century, symphonies usual?ly started with a forceful downbeat whose function was somewhat similar to that of the rising curtain in the theatre: "Ladies and gentlemen, please be silent, the piece has begun!" The French even had a special name for this downbeat: premier coup d'archet (first bowstroke). More than a simple cus?tom, this way of opening a work became one of the defining elements of symphonic style.
The opening of Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in g minor (K. 550) is, in its quiet way, nothing short of a revolution. Dispensing with the premier coup d'archet, Mozart start?ed with a lyrical melody. What is even more unusual, however, is that this lyrical melody is preceded by almost a full measure of accompanying eighth-notes in the divided violas. In the nineteenth century, accompa?niment figures without melody were not uncommon: one might think of the open?ings of Schubert's Gretchen at the Spinning-Wheel or his String Quartet in a minor, the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto or many opera arias by Verdi. The example they all followed was Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in g minor, which may be seen as the symbolic origin of musical Romanticism.
Many writers have felt this symphony-and not only its first measure--to be Romantic in spirit. Often in his earlier --works Mozart had used (albeit with surpass?ing mastery) melodic material that belonged to a common vocabulary of Classical music. Not so in the g-minor symphony. The themes of this work are highly individual?ized and transcend conventions to a much greater extent than anything Mozart had
written before. The symphony contains dis?sonances, modulations and chromatic pro?gressions that were extremely bold for their time, and revealed new worlds of expressivi?ty that had not previously been known to musicians. Individuality, bold innovations and heightened expressivity--all three con?cepts were to become central to the : Romantic aesthetics of music.
At the same time, the symphony pre?serves a clarity of form and a balance
entirely Classical. We could not find better examples for sonata form than the first and the last movements; Classical rules and sym?metries are respected throughout. ; One of the most exciting parts in the first movement is the development section, where the famous opening melody under?goes dramatic transformations and its seg?ments taken apart, a technique later adopted by Beethoven. In the course of about ninety seconds (which is how long it takes to play the development section), there is counter-, point, a great deal of contrast in dynamics and orchestration, and key changes every four bars or so. The section begins and ends with a short descending scale scored for woodwinds only, making for smooth but quite noticeable transitions.
The theme of the second-movement "Andante" is intoned by the string instru?ments in successive entries (almost, though not quite, like in a fugue). At the repeat of this theme, the woodwinds add a descend,., ing scale motif in thirty-second notes sepa?rated by rests: a special masterstroke that was quoted almost literally by Haydn in the "Winter" section of his oratorio The Seasons. But Mozart develops the idea dif?ferently, using it for another great buildup of tension in the middle of the movement, before the recapitulation brings back the initial feelings of peace and serenity.
The third movement is one of the most metrically irregular minuets ever written.
Intricacies such as the he'miola (two 34 measures rearranged in three 24 units) are combined with dissonant clashes in the har?mony and a pungent chromaticism in the, melodic motion. The Trio, in which the tonality changes from g minor to G Major, is more relaxed, but the musical articulation remains complex. The woodwinds (with the exception of the clarinets) and the two horns all enjoy some great soloistic oppor tunities in the Trio.
Unlike many symphonies written in j minor keys, Mozart's Symphony No. 40 does not switch to the major mode for the finale ,,,' but remains in the minor to the end. This.I movement has few equals in the Classical lit'? erature for sheer dramatic power and inten? sity. Its most stunning moment is, without a , doubt, the beginning of the development, a ; striking unison passage that touches on all ... ? twelve tones of the chromatic scale and tfaS totally confounds our sense of tonality for a . moment. It resolves into an exciting contra'. puntal section that ends up as far from the home key of g minor as possible (c-sharp a minor). The recapitulation (which intro?& duces some subtle changes in the melody) $ ends with three strong g-minor chords that i almost sound like cries of despair. ;

n the thirty years he has been per-" forming on the concert stage, Murray Perahia has become one of the most sought after and cherished !
____pianists of our time. J
Recognized worldwide as a musician of rare musical sensitivity, Mr. Perahia performs j in all of the major international music centers ! and with every leading orchestra of the world. He was appointed Principal Guest jj' Conductor of the Academy of St. Martin-in'I the-Fields in September 2000.
This season he performs with orchesj
tras in London, Toronto, Philadelphia, Sti-Paul and Warsaw. He will continue to tour with his highly acclaimed recital program including Bach's Goldberg Variations to New ' York, London, Frankfurt, Istanbul, Rome, Paris, and Seattle. In the 19992000 US sea? son he performed with the orchestras of i Seattle, Cleveland, Boston and New York. In London he also performed the Goldberg Variations as part of a three-concert series that featured him as soloist and conductor . with the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields.
In February 1999, Mr. Perahia's record?ing of Bach's English Suites (Nos. 1, 3 and 6) " received a Grammy for "Best Instrumental . Soloist" (without orchestra). He has since ' released a second album of English Suites, and his next release will feature Mendelssohn's Songs Without Words. Mr..j Perahia's many recordings include the com-" plete Mozart Piano Concertos (in which he directs the English Chamber Orchestra from the keyboard), the complete Beethoven ,_ Concertos (with the Concertgebouw 'S Orchestra conducted by Bernard Haitink), as well as numerous solo discs covering a
broad spectrum of composers. His record-ing of music by Handel and Scarlatti won the Gramophone Award for the best instru?mental recording of 1997. In 1998 Sony released a four-disc set commemorating twenty-five years of recordings issued under the label. Other recent releases include the complete works for piano and orchestra of Robert Schumann recorded with the Berlin Philharmonic and Claudio Abbado, as well as a solo disc of Schumann: "Kreisleriana" and Sonata No. 1.
Murray Perahia was born in New York. He started playing the piano at the age of four, and later attended Mannes College, where he majored in conducting and com?position. His summers were spent in Marlboro, where he collaborated with musi?cians such as Rudolph Serkin, Pablo Casals and the members of the Budapest Quartet. He also studied at the time with Mieczyslaw Horszowski.
In 1972 Murray Perahia won the Leeds International Piano Competition, and engagements throughout Europe soon fol?lowed. In 1973 he gave his first concert at the Aldeburgh Festival where he met and worked closely with Benjamin Britten and Peter Pears, accompanying the latter in many lieder recitals. He was co-artistic director of the Aldeburgh Festival from 1981 to 1989. In subsequent years, he devel?oped a close friendship with Vladimir Horowitz, whose perspective and personali?ty were an abiding inspiration.
Murray Perahia is an Honorary Fellow of the Royal College of Music and the Royal Academy of Music.
Tonight's performance marks Murray Perahia's tenth appearance under UMS aus?pices. He last appeared under UMS auspices in solo recital on February 16, 2000 perform?ing J.S. Bach's Goldberg Variations at Hill Auditorium. Mr. Perahia made his UMS debut in October of 1977.
he Academy of St. Martin-iri'-the-Fields was founded by Sir Neville Marriner in 1959, then a violinist with the London Symphony Orchestra. Originally formed as a small, conductor-less string ensemble spe, cializing in Baroque music, the Academy has grown considerably in size, repertoire and reputation. It is now the world's most record?ed chamber orchestra, playing music from the seventeenth century to the present day.
Working with three principal part?ners--Life President Sir Neville Marriner, Artistic Director Kenneth Sillito and Principal Guest Conductor Murray Perahia--and with many other colleagues, the orchestra divides its time among con?certs in the United Kingdom, work in the recording studio and international tours. In 1993 the Academy became the first orches?tra to be honored with a Queen's Award for
Export Achievement in recognition of its extensive touring schedule and esteemed reputation outside Britain. !KJSSOSS._
The Academy has won many other prestigious international awards, including eight Edisons, the Canadian Grand Prix and a multitude of gold discs--thirteen alone for the soundtrack to Milos Forman's film Amadeus. The orchestra also recorded the soundtrack to The English Patient, which won nine Academy Awards, including "Best Original Dramatic Score" and "Best Sound."
The Academy regularly tours the US, South America, Europe and the Far East, and was particularly honored to be asked by the Hong Kong Government to play at the official hand-over celebrations in 1997.
Tonight's performance marks the Academy of St. Martin-in-the-Fields' fifth appearance under UMS auspices.

Suite para canto e violino ''u
$J (Suite for Voice and Violin) :_
Heitor Villa-Lobos j
Born March 5, 1887 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil s, Died November 17, 1959 in Rio de Janeiro i
The composer Darius Milhaud weathered '"' the First World War by getting himself '?_
assigned to the entourage of the poet Paul Claudel, who served as the French ambas! sador to Brazil during the conflict. Almost as soon as Milhaud arrived in Rio, Heitor Villa-Lobos, just establishing his reputation as one of Brazil's most daring and ambitious composers, introduced himself, and then ? convinced Milhaud to present him to the ; visiting pianist Artur Rubinstein. Rubinstein -was much taken with Villa-Lobos' talent, ' and he began programming his piano com! positions and championing his music across three continents. Milhaud and Rubinstein ; both urged him to share his exotic variety of' music with European audiences, and in the summer of 1923, Villa-Lobos set sail for France. He was warmly welcomed to Paris ; by the Brazilian community, which included:: the singer Vera Janacopulos, who brought the new arrival into contact with many of : the city's most prominent musicians and ; artists. It was for Mme. Janacopulos and her friend, the violinist Yvonne Astruc, that ' Villa-Lobos wrote one of his first compositions in Paris, a pair of songs for the unusu-: al combination of voice and violin. They were premiered at the Salle des Agriculteurs i on October 23, 1923 on the concert that was' Villa-Lobos' public debut in Paris. Mme. " Astruc encouraged Villa-Lobos to add a -third number to the set, which he did; the . work was first heard in its complete form on! April 9, 1924. ;
The Suite for Soprano and Violin is thor-' oughly wedded to the indigenous musical ; style of Villa-Lobos' native Brazil, a facet of '"' his creative personality that was stimulated rather than subdued by his residence in
Paris. The opening number ("A Menina e a Cancao" [The Young Girl and the Song]) is a setting of a poem by Mario de Andrade whose text may be paraphrased as follows:
A gaunt, young girl, her skirt flying . above her knees,
Came, half dancing and singing, in the ' -..,. twilight.
i; She beat a rhythm on the dusty ground '?: with her stick. j'
' She turned suddenly to an old Negro
woman with an enormous bundle of clothes on her head:
"Oh, will you give that to me, Granny" 5 "No."
The last two songs, "Quero ser Align (I Wish To Be Gay) and uSertaneja" (The Peasant Girl of Brazil), are both wordless, the first in the nature of a lament, the other based on the vivacious embolada, a humor?ous songdance type from northeast Brazil whose texts are given to alliteration. Villa.;;' Lobos used the textual character of the .{$ embolada to create a startlingly modern '. vocal style for "Sertaneja" which presages music composed by George Crumb and M Luciano Berio in the 1960s and 1970s. $
Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5, H for Soprano and Violoncellos
Villa-Lobos . -
The set of nine Bachianas Brasileiras holds a special place in Villa-Lobos' enormous out?put of more than 2000 works. These com?positions, which Arthur Cohn called "less a musical form than a type of creative princi?ple," combine the melodic and rhythmic characteristics of Brazilian music with the texture and style of Bach. Of this genre, ;syj original with him, Villa-Lobos wrote, "Th" is a special kind of musical composition,
based on an intimate knowledge of the great works of Bach and also on the composer's affinity with the harmonic, contrapuntal and melodic atmosphere of the folklore of , Brazil. The composer considers Bach a uni?versal and rich folklore source, deeply root?ed in the folk music of every country in the j world. Thus Bach is a mediator among all J races.
The Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 is scored for the unusual combination of soprano voice and eight cellos. The opening movement, "Aria" (Cantilena), was com?posed in 1938 and premiered on March 25, 1939 in Rio de Janeiro. Villa-Lobos noted ( that the Brazilian usage of the word "aria" is as a general designation for "a kind of lyrical" song"--his model in the outer sections of the piece, sung without words, may well;-' ' ? have been the famous Air from Bach's Orchestral Suite, No. 3. The middle portion . of the "Aria," in the style of a Brazilian folk-' song, is a setting of a poem by Ruth V. Correa evoking the beauties of sunset and ? evening. According to the composer, the seci ond movement, "Danca" (subtitled Martelo [Hammered]), from 1945, "represents a per-j sistent and characteristic rhythm much like ,' the strange melodies of the Brazilian hinter?land known as emboladas. The melody sugv gests the birds of Brazil." Its text, a verse by Manuel Bandeira, expresses the ancient theme of the wild bird as the messenger of J
Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp,
Claude Debussy ?
Born August 22, 1862 in St.-Germain-en-
Laye, France ' " '
Died March 25, 1918 in Paris
When the Guns of August thundered across the European Continent in 1914 to plunge the world into "the war to end all wars," Claude Debussy was already showing signs of the colon cancer that would end his life four years later. Apprehensive about his health and tormented by the military con?flict, his creative production came to a vir?tual halt: except for a Berceuse hero'ique writ?ten "as a tribute of homage to His Majesty King Albert I of Belgium and his soldiers," Debussy wrote no new music in 1914; the death of his mother the following March further deepened his depression. That same month, however, he appeared in a recital in the Salle Gaveau with the soprano Ninon Vallin, and his mood brightened. During the summer, he completed En blanc et noir for Two Pianos and the Etudes for Solo Piano, and projected a series of six sonatas for vari?ous instrumental combinations inspired by the old Baroque school of French clavecin-ists. The first of the sonatas, for cello and piano, was completed quickly in July and August 1915 during a holiday at Pourville, near Dieppe; the second one, for flute, viola (originally oboe) and harp, was also written at Pourville before Debussy returned to Paris on October 12. Surgery in December prevented him from further work until October 1916, when he began the Sonata for Violin and Piano. A sonata for oboe, horn and harpsichord never went beyond the planning stage; the remainder of the pro?jected set did not get that far. The Violin Sonata, completed in 1917, was his last important work; he premiered the piece on May 5, 1917 in Paris with violinist Gaston Poulet, and played it again in September at St.-Jean-de-Luz, where he was summering.
It was his last public appearance
For the inspiration, style and tempera?ment of the Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp, Debussy looked back far beyond the Impressionism of his earlier works to the elegance, emotional reserve and textural clarity of the music of the French Baroque. The Sonata's ethereal opening movement, titled "Pastorale," unfolds as a series of episodes based on themes that at first ? encounter seem like little more than wispy arabesques. There are, however, five frag?mentary but distinct thematic entities here, which are later recapitulated in a different order to round out the movement's form: 1 and 2) two melancholy strains that intro_ duce the flute and the viola; 3) an open-interval, drone-like motive for viola and harp; 4) a lyrical melody in the flute's lower register supported by arching arpeggios in the viola; and 5) an animated ensemble pas?sage in an uneven meter. The motives are heard at the end of the movement in this order: 2-4--5-3-1. A quicker dance-like sec?tion occupies the middle of the movement. Though the "Interlude," a reminiscence in pastels of the durable old form of the 3 minuet, is Debussy's most obvious tribute here to the music of the Baroque, its whole-' tone theme, parallel chord streams and modal harmonies plainly mark this as a product of the twentieth century. The form proceeds by twice interpolating a vaguely Oriental duple-meter episode (B) into the delicate triple-meter minuet (A);. A-B-A-B-A.
The "Finale" brilliantly grounds its apparent evanescence of expression in a carefully crafted development of its themes. Most of the movement grows from muta?tions of the three motives that are presented in quick succession at the outset: snapping viola pizzicatos, quicksilver falling arpeggios from the flute, and a longer viola melody " anxiously juxtaposing duple and triple rhythms. As the movement nears its end, the
tempo slows to admit a brief recall of the flute theme that opened the first movement before a short, animated coda closes the $ Sonata. . ?:(&
To a Child Dancing in the Wind
for Soprano, Flute, Viola and Harp John Tavener Born January 28, 1944 in LondonWBS
John Tavener, born in London in 1944 and trained under Lennox Berkeley at the Royal Academy of Music, ranks (with Estonian composer Arvo Part) as the great musical mystic at the turn of the millennium. After passing through periods as organist in a Presbyterian church in Kensington and an adherent of a reactionary species of Roman Catholicism, he joined the Russian Orthodox Church in 1977, perhaps less for"" its dogma than for what he perceives as its ties to an elemental life force that he believes was banished from Western music by seven?teenth-century rationalism. "Everything I write at the moment seems to produce a i very large audience," Tavener said in an j interview in 1992. ,
I Some say they find truth and beauty in my music, and I accept that. I hazard a guess: maybe they are attracted by the Tradition which I have used. A Tradition ; with a capital'T,' which embraces Saint'jjHp Sophia in Constantinople as well as Chartres...of which the West seems to . have lost all sense. We have surrendered a sort of secret knowledge, the knowledge v Dante speaks about: the intellect of the heart.... We are now at the end of a cycle, in a time where anything goes, artistically speaking. Maybe that's what I try to work on. Tradition. Perhaps that is the chord I strike in people's hearts. I use the tone systems of the Byzantine era, I use sacred ?; geometry. If I write a piece about, say, thi I Holy Spirit, the notes wouldn't come out
of nowhere. I am only a vessel through , which God speaks.
. ; Tavener's conviction about the mystical power of music has inspired a large number of works on religious themes with sung texts--cantatas, requiems, introits, canticles, lamentations, prayers, vigils, rites, operas on St. Therese of Lisieux and Mary of Egypt-j as well as a growing body of chamber and -orchestral compositions, many with soloists. The essential qualities of Tavener's music-austerity and transcendence--create a float?ing quietude that evokes a mystical realm which only music can reveal.
Tavener was attracted to the writings of William Butler Yeats (1865-1939) not just for the content of the Irish poet's verses but. j also for their shared view of the mystical nature of art. To a Child Dancing in the Wind sets a series of Yeats' poems dealing with the stages of life--the endearing ',
naivete of childhood, the loss of innocence, ? the fading of youth into old age, the con?frontation with death, and even an opti'-. mistic conjecture about the after-life. The cycle is threaded together by a twenty-five-note palindrome, stated gently by the harp at the outset, that not only provides the the?matic germ for much of what follows but also returns in its original or inverted form to begin each song, save only "Two Years Later" and "The Stolen Child." The cycle is brought to a haunting, otherworldly close,... by "The Countess Cathleen in Paradise," j during which the singer is instructed to -j leave the stage while intoning the song's 1 serene melody, part chant, part folksong.

he Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (CMS) mounted its first concert on September 11, 1969, in its permanent home, Alice _ Tully Hall, thus realizing the dream Lincoln Center president-composer William Schuman, had of creating a constituent J devoted exclusively to chamber music. Its I pioneering structure--a core of distinJ guished Artist Members augmented by M invited guests--allows Artistic Director 1 David Shifrin to present concerts of every -instrumentation, style, and historical period at Lincoln Center, on national and interna?tional tours, and on national television via Live from Lincoln Center. As the nation's pre?miere repertory company for chamber music, CMS strives to bring audiences the 1 finest performances of an extraordinary 1 body of repertoire, dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to the finest works of our time. H
In addition to its concert series at Alice Tully Hall, CMS offers a wide spectrum of programs designed for people of all ages, M backgrounds and levels of musical knowl-1 edge and experience. This season, the M Chamber Music Society collaborated with I Merkin Concert Hall to present a nine-con?cert celebration, "A Great Day in New York," a celebration of fifty-four New York-based composers. Other programs include a family
concert series called "Meet the Music!" and "Chamber Music Beginnings," a curriculum-based program that introduces stui dents in grades three through six to cham-i ber music; Chamber Music Society Two, 2 which showcases the next generation of y world-class chamber musicians; a series of' hour-long concerts in its intimate Daniel and Joanna S. Rose Rehearsal Studio; and "Double Exposure" concerts, an innovative . way to experience new music twice in one '$i evening. Audiences can enhance their enjoy?ment of CMS events through an in-depth lecture series with scholars and composers, and "Inside Chamber Music," a series of . seminars on music led by Bruce Adolphe.
CMS' discography ranges from Bach to ! Zwilich and includes critically-acclaimed s recordings of Dvorak's Serenade and Quintet, ' Beethoven's Septet and Serenade; music by Carl Maria von Weber; and Walton's Facade with Lynn Redgrave as narrator. Fi Magazine named CMS' recording of Bach's complete Brandenburg Concertos "one of the best ,g recordings of the year" in 1996. CMS's -. newest releases feature The Complete Chamber Music of Claude Debussy, which ,j was nominated for a Grammy Award; a disc ' of Twentieth-Century American Clarinet Quintets featuring David Shifrin, Eden Otrtg " ofTime and Out of Space featuring music of George Rochberg, and Wynton Marsalis' j A Fiddler's Tale with actor Andre De Shields. f
In its thirty-one years, CMS has shown j a commitment to the music of the twentieth '?' century by commissioning over a hundred new works from a formidable array of com?posers, including Bruce Adolphe, Samuel Barber, Leonard Bernstein, William Bolcom, Sj John Corigliano, George Crumb, Lukas Foss, aj John Harbison, Alberto Ginastera, Morton .J Gould, Keith Jarrett, Oliver Knussen, Gian$ Carlo Menotti, Darius Milhaud, Peter W" Schickele, Bright Sheng, Joan Tower, and Ellen Taaffe Zwilich. This commitment con?tinues in the coming season, as CMS per-
forms eight world or New York premieres. The Chamber Music Society also supports the work of living composers by awarding the Elise L. Stoeger Prize, a cash award given annually to each of two outstanding com?posers of chamber music. The CMS has been guided by three Artistic Directors: founding Artistic Director Charles Wadsworth (1969-1989), Fred Sherry (1989-1992), and since
.J.992, David Shifrin.

fter hearing the Brass Band of Battle Creek, former Tonight Show bandleader Doc Severinsen said, "This is one of the most exciting and accomplished groups I have ever worked with in my entire career." In the last three years, the Brass Band of Battle Creek has gained national and inter?national attention due to its excellent per?formances and noteworthy personnel. Dr. James Gray conceived this ensemble in the fall of 1989 and with the assistance of his brother, Dr. William Gray, the Brass Band of Battle Creek became a reality in 1990. While using Battle Creek as its home base, the ensemble is comprised of the finest brass musicians across the country.
With the help of the "Expert-In-Residence" program of the Kellogg Foundation, the Brass Band of Battle Creek has become one of the most popular ensem?bles for brass musicians from the US and abroad. Most of its members are profession?al musicians and university professors. The
combined talents of these musicians have made the Brass Band of Battle Creek a high?ly praised and widely recognized brass band in the US and abroad.
Drawn from some of the finest musi?cians in the US and England, including cur?rent and past principal players from the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the US Army and Marine Bands, and Broadway orchestra musicians, the Brass Band of Battle Creek is an all-brass band in the British tradition. Performing an astounding assortment of marches, classical transcriptions and big band favorites, the Brass Band of Battle Creek demonstrates their mastery of a wide-range of repertoire each night the ensemble performs.
Over a century ago, nearly every town and village with at least a few hundred peo?ple had its own hometown band. In 1889, more than 10,000 bands were active in the US; by 1908, that number had grown to 18,000. The bands were comprised of min?ers, farmers, factory workers, newsboys and
cowboys. Local associations had their own : bands, as did prisons and orphanages. As technology improved, new instruments were invented, making the possibility of an all-brass band--with no reed instruments, clar?inets or saxophones--a viable possibility beginning in the mid-eighteenth century.
The'Brass Band of Battle Creek restores the nostalgia of those days, preserving an art. form too rarely heard in America today. '?

Ich habe genug, BWV 82
J.S. Bach
Ich habe genug,
Ich habe den Heiland, das Hoffen der Frommen,
Auf meine begierigen Arme genommen;
Ich habe genug!
Ich habe ihn erblickt,
Mein Glaube hat Jesum ans Herze gedriickt;
Nun wunsch ich noch heute mit Freuden
Von hinnen zu scheiden.
Ich habe genug!
Ich habe genug!
Mein Trost ist nur allein,
DaS Jesus mein und ich sein eigen mochte sein.
Im Glauben halt ich ihn,
Da seh ich auch mit Simeon
Die Freude jenes Lebens schon.
Lafit uns mit diesem Manne ziehn!
Ach, mochte mich von meines Leibes Ketten
Der Herr erretten!
Ach, ware doch mein Abschied hier,
Mit Freuden sagt ich, Welt, zu dir:
Ich habe genug!
Schlummert ein, ihr matten Augen, Fallet sanft und selig zu! Welt, ich bleibe nicht mehr hier, Hab ich doch kein Teil an dir, Das der Seele konnte taugen. Hier muG ich das Elend bauen, Aber dort, dort werd ich schauen Slifien Friede, stille Ruh.
Mein Gott! wenn kommt das schone: Nun!
Da ich in Frieden fahren werde
Und in dem Sande kiihler Erde,
Und dort, bei dir, im Schofie ruhn
Der Abschied ist gemacht.
Welt, gute Naclit!
Ich Irene mich auf meinen Tod, Ach, liiitt ersich schon eingefunden. Da cntkomm ich aller Not, Die mich noch auf der Welt gebunden.
I have enough;
I have taken the Saviour, the hope of the Gentiles,
Into my yearning arms.
I have enough;
I have seen him,
My faith has clasped Jesus to my heart;
Now I desire already today
To depart with joy from here.
I have enough!
I have enough!
My only comfort is
That Jesus might be mine and I be his.
In faith I hold him,
And with Simeon I already see
The bliss of that life.
Let us depart with this man!
Ah, let the Lord redeem me
From the fetters of this my life.
Ah, if only the hour of my departure were come;
With joy I would say to you, O world,
I have enough!
Go to sleep, you weary eyes,
Gently, blessed, close your lids;
Oh, world, I will not longer tarry here,
As I have no more part in you
That could benefit my soul.
Here I live in misery,
But there, there I shall see
Sweet peace, quiet rest.
My God! When will the blessed "Now" come,
When I shall depart in peace,
And in the sand of the cool earth
Rest in your embrace
My farewells have been taken.
World, good night.
I long for my death;
Ah, if only it had already come.
Then I shall escape all distress
That still binds me here on earth.
Giulio Cesare (excerpt) Handel
Aria: Dall'ondoso periglio...Aure, deh, per pieta
Dall'ondoso periglio
salvo mi porta al lido
il mio propizio fato.
Qui la celeste parca non franco ancor
10 stame alia mia vita! Ma dove andro
E chi mi porge aita Ove son le mie schiere Ove son le legioni, Che a tante mie vittorie
11 varco aprir6
Solo in queste erme arene
al monarca del mondo errar conviene
Aure, deh per pieta,
spirate al petto mio,
Per dar conforto, o Dio
al mio dolor.
Dite, dov'e,
che fa l'idolo del mio sen,
l'amato e dolce ben
di questo cor
Ma d'ogni intorno io veggio
sparse d'arme e d'estinti
1'infortunate arene,
segno d'infausto annunzio alfin sara.
From the perilous waves,
my propitious Fate
Has brought me safe to shore.
The heavenly Fate does not yet sever
The thread of my life!
But where shall I go
And who will help me
Where are my troops
Where are the legions
that paved my way
To so many victories
Among those desert sands
Must the ruler of the world wander
Gentle breezes, ah, for mercy's sake,
blow upon my breast,
to give comfort, O God,
to my grief.
Tell me, where is she
who is the idol of my heart,
the beloved, sweet love
Of this heart
But everywhere I see
these dismal sands
Bestrewn with arms and corpses.
This must be the inauspicious sign of disaster.
Giulio Cesare (excerpt) Handel Aria: Se in fiorito
Se in fiorito amcno prato l'augellin tra fiori e fronde si nasconde, fa piu grado ii suo cantar.
Se cosi Lidia vezzosa spiega ancor note canore, piu graziosa fa ogni core
If, in the pleasant, flowery meadow
The bird, among flowers and leaves,
Conceals itself,
It only makes
Its song more delightful.
Similarly, the fair Lydia Utters her song in the night, Even more delightful, She makes every heart Enamored.
Rodelinda (excerpt) Handel Aria: Vivi, tiranno
Vivi, tiranno, io t'ho scampato; svcnami, ingrato, sfoua il furor!
You live, tyrant,
1 have saved you;
now, in your ingratitude, kill me.

Suite para canto e violino (Suite for Voice and Violin)
Heitor Villa-Lobos
A Menina e a Cancao
A melina es ganicada. Magrica, com a saia voe
jando por cima dos joelhos em n6, Vinha meio dansando, cantando ao crepusculo
escuro. Batia compasso com a varinha. Na poeira da
calcada. De repente voltouse para anegravelha que
vinha tropegrando atraz, enorme trouxa de roupa a cabeca: "Qu6 mi da, vo" "Naao."
Quero ser Alegre (vocalise) Sertaneja
Espingarda, Faca de ponta!
The Young Girl and the Song
A very skinny girl with a high-pitched voice whose skirt was floating high above her knobbly knees was coming along half dancing, half singing in the late evening. She was beating time with a stick in the dust on the path. Suddenly, she turned round to the old black woman, who was tripping along behind her, carrying an enormous bundle of clothes on her head. She asked the black woman, "Will you let me carry it, Grandma" "No!"
I Wish To Be Gay (vocalise) The Peasant Girl of Brazil

Aria (Cantilena)
Tarde, uma nuvem
r6sea lenta e transparente, Sobreo espaco sonhadora e bela! Surge no infinito a
lua docemente,
Enfeitando a tarde, qual meiga donzela Que se apresta e alinda sonhadoramente, Em anseios d'alma para ficar bela, Grita ao do e a terra,
toda a Natureza!
Cala a passarada aos seus
tristes queixumes, E reflete o mar toda a sua riqueza... Suave a luz da lua
desperta agora,
A cruel saudade que ri e chora! Tarde, uma nuvem
r6sea lenta e transparente, Sobre o espaco sonhadora e bela!
Danca (Martelo)
Irere1, meu passarinho do
Sertao do Cariri,
Irere, meu companheiro, Cade vi6la Cade meu bem Cade Maria Ai triste sorte a do violeiro cantado! Ah! Sem a vi61a em que cantava
o seu amo,
Ah! Seu assobio e tua flauta de Irere: Que tua flauta do Sertao
quando assobia, Ah! A gente sofre sem quere! Ah! Ten canto chega Id do fundo
do sertao, ah! Como ua brisa amolecendo
o coracao, ah! ah! Irere, Solta ten canto! Canta mais!
Canta mais! Pra alcmbra o Cariri!
Lo, at midnight clouds are slowly passing,
rosy and lustrous,
O'er the spacious heav'n with loveliness laden. From the boundless deep the moon arises
Glorifying the evening like a beauteous maiden, Now she adorns herself in half-unconscious duty, Eager, anxious that we recognize her beauty. While sky and earth, yea all nature
with applause salute her.
All the birds have ceased their
sad and mournful complaining. Now appears on the sea in a silver reflection Moonlight softly waking the
soul and constraining Hearts to cruel tears and bitter dejection. Lo, at midnight clouds are slowly passing,
rosy and lustrous, O'er the spacious heavens dreamily wondrous.
Irere, my loved companion,
my singing sweetheart,
Irere, my little nestling from the wilds of Cariri, Where goes my dear Where goes Maria Ah, sorry is the lot of him who fain would sing! Ah! without his lute no song of gladness
can he bring.
Ah! his whistle shrill must be his flute for Irere, But yours the flute that once in
forest wilds was sounding, Ah! with its message of grief and woe. Ah! your song came forth from out the
depths of forest wilds, Ah, like summer winds that
comfort ev'ry mournful heart, ah! ah! Irere, Sing and enchant meJ Sing once more,
sing once more! Rring me songs of Cariri!
The Fiddler of Dooney
When I play on my fiddle in Dooney Folk dance like a wave on the sea; My cousin is priest in Kilvarnet, My brother in Mocharabuiee.
I passed my brother and cousin; They read in their books of prayer; I read in my book of songs I bought at the Sligo fair.
When we come at the end of time To Peter sitting in state He will smile on the three old spirits, But call me first through the gate;
For the good are always the merry, Save by an evil chance, And the merry love the fiddle, And the merry love to dance:
And when the folk there spy me, They will all come up to me, With "Here is the fiddler of Dooney!" And dance like a wave of the sea.
A Deep-Sworn Vow
Others because you did not keep
That deep-sworn
Vow have been friends of mine;
Yet always when I look death in the face,
When I clamber to the heights of sleep,
Or when I grow excited with wine,
Suddenly I meet your face.
Sweet Dancer
The girl goes dancing there
On the leaf-sown, new-mown, smooth
Grass plot of the garden;
Escaped from bitter youth,
Escaped out of her crowd,
Or out of her black cloud,
Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!
If strange men come from the house To lead her away, do not say That she is happy being crazy; Lead them gently astray; Let her finish her dance, Let her finish her dance. Ah, dancer, ah, sweet dancer!
The Stolen Child
Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than
you can understand.
He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread my dreams under your feet; But I being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly for you tread on my dreams.
The Countess Cathleen in Paradise
All the heavy days are over; Leave the body's coloured pride Underneath the grass and clover With the feet laid side by side.
One with her are mirth and duty; Bear the gold embroidered dress; For she needs not her sad beauty, To the scented oaken press.
Hers the kiss of Mother Mary, The long hair is on her face; Still she goes with footsteps wary, Full of earth's old timid grace.
With white feet of angels seven Her white feet go glimmering And above the deep of Heaven, Flame on flame and wing on wing.

Sing, my song-bird, sing your song again,
sing, my Irert! Sing of pain and sorrow, as the birds of
morning wake Maria in the dawning! Sing with all your voices, Birds of the
woods and wilds, Sing! your songs, ye forest birds! La! lia! lia! lia! lia! Ha! Ye nestlings of the mourning forest wilds. Lia! lia! lia! lia! La! lia! lia! lid! lia! lia! Ye nestlings of the mourning forest wilds. Oh, yours the song that comes from
depths of forest wilds Like summer winds that comfort ev'ry
mournful heart.
To a Child Dancing in the Wind
John Taverner
He Wishes for the Cloths of Heaven
Had I the heavens' embroidered cloths, Enwrought with golden and silver light, The blue and the dim and the dark cloths Of night and light and the half-light, I would spread the cloths under your feet; But I, being poor, have only my dreams; I have spread my dreams under your feet; Tread softly for you tread on my dreams.
The Old Men Admiring Themselves in the Water
I heard the old, old men say,
"Everything alters,
And one by one we drop away."
They had hands like claws, and their knees
Were twisted like the old thorn-trees
By the waters.
I heard the old, old men say,
"All that's beautiful drifts away
Like the waters."
To A Child Dancing in the Wind
Dance there upon the shore; What need have you to care For wind or water's roar And tumble out your hair That the salt drops have wet; Being young you have not known The fool's triumph, nor yet Love lost as soon as won, Nor the best laborer dead And all the sheaves to bind. What need have you to dread The monstrous crying of wind
Two Years Later
Has no one said those daring
Kind eyes should be more learn'd
Or warned you how despairing
The moths are when they are burned
I could have warned you; but you are young,
So we speak a different tongue.
O will you take whatever's offered
And dream that all the world's a friend,
Suffer as your mother suffered,
Be as broken in the end.
But I am old and you are young,
And I speak a barbarous' tongue.
(Dance there upon the shore.)
