t is a pleasure to welcome you to this performance on the UMS 20012002 Season. With world-renowned per?formers, new community partnerships, and ever-expanding educational activi?ties, our 123rd season continues our
commitment to artistic and educational excel?lence and our dedication to our audiences and extended community. We are delighted that you
are here to share in the excitement of the live performing arts.
As we enjoy this performance, we want to recognize and thank the many generous supporters who help make this extraordinary season possible. As you know, the price of your ticket does not cover our costs of presenting this per?formance. To bridge the gap, we must
rely on the generosity of our many indi?vidual, corporate, governmental and foundation donors. In supporting UMS, they have publicly recognized the impor?tance of the arts in our community and helped create new educational opportu?nities for students and adults of all ages and backgrounds.
So, as you read through the program book and take pleasure in this perform?ance, please join me in thanking our many generous contributors. They are playing an important role in the artistic life of our community, and we are truly grateful for their support.

Choral Union Audition information and performance schedules for the UMS Choral Union.
hrough a deep commitment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves 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 122 years, strong leadership 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 com?mitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
As a great number of Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theatre. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction and innovation. UMS now hosts approximately eighty per?formances 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, and the EMU Convocation Center.
While proudly affiliated with the University of Michigan, housed on the Ann Arbor campus, and a regular collaborator with many University units, UMS is a separate not-for-profit organ?ization that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, and endowment income.
hroughout its 122-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. Eight years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, 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.
The current season includes performances of Messiah, Ives' Symphony No. 4 with Michael Tilson-Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Brahms' Ein deutsches Requiem with Thomas Sheets conducting the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, all in Hill Auditorium. To con?clude its 123rd season, the Choral Union will join the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Neeme Jarvi in three performances of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis.
In 1995, the Choral Union began accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream ofGerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire. During the 199697 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 given acclaimed presenta?tions of Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra and other musical-theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. The 72-voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solennelle, the Mozart Requiem and other works. Recent programs by the Choral Union's 36-voice Chamber Chorale include "Creativity in Later Life," a program of late works by nine composers of all historical periods, a joint appearance with the Gabrieli Consort and Players and a performance of Bach's Magnificat.
In the 19992000 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 Scriabin's Symphony No. 5 with the Russian National Orchestra.
During the past season, the UMS Choral Union appeared in two series with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. The season cul?minated in a performance of Hector Berlioz' Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, along with tenor Stanford Olsen and members of the U-M School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Representing a mix?ture 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-eight 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 auditorium seated 4,597 when it first opened; subsequent renovations, which increased the size of the stage to accommodate both an orchestra and a large chorus (1948) and improved wheel?chair seating (1995), decreased the seating capacity to its current 4,163.
This season marks the last UMS Choral Union Series in Hill Auditorium before it closes for renovations in May 2002. Hill Auditorium will reopen during the 20032004 season, UMS' 125th season.
Rackham Auditorium
uring the 20012002 season, Rackham Auditorium will be closed due to extensive renovations. The Auditorium is scheduled to reopen in Fall 2002.
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented 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 stud?ies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambitious ever given to higher-level edu?cation, 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 government were unlikely to provide financial support 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.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
n 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19,1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started in 1950 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splen?did three manual "mechanical action" organ with thirty-four stops and forty-five ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through ded?ication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church build?ing, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoy?ment and contemplation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
otwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS recently began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. Now, with UMS' programmatic initiative to present song in recital, the superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has become a recent venue addition to UMS' roster and the home of the Song Recital series.
Due to the closing of Rackham Auditorium, Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre has been chosen as the venue of choice for five chamber music performances comprising part of UMS' 39th Annual Chamber Arts Series.
Michigan Theater
he historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaude?villemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986. In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000 and balcony restorations have been completed
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.
UMS Administrative offices have returned to our familiar home at Burton Memorial Tower in August 2001, following a year of significant renovations to the University landmark.

Dear UMS patrons,
Thank you for attending this performance. Your support of UMS through your ticket purchase and presence at this event means a lot to us, especially in the aftermath of September 11. Arts groups across the nation, including UMS, have experienced a softening in their ticket sales this fall, but we are optimistic that attendance will improve as the season progresses. We're glad you're here. I invite you to join us for our other theater, dance, and music events. Check out our complete 200102 offerings beginning on page 29 in the glossy pages toward the back of the book.
Collaboration. It is such an important concept in the performing arts today. As you read this program book, you'll see that UMS regularly works together with education?al units, community organizations, corporate and media sponsors, religious and ethnic groups, and other arts organizations to mount our performances, educational events, and other activities. These partnerships have helped us build new audiences, deepen the commitment of existing audiences, and enrich the overall experience for our patrons. They have also made it possible for us to produce some bold and excit?ing artistic projects that we couldn't have done without our partners' involvement.
Such is the case with Orfeo ed Euridice. UMS is able to bring this stunning new pro?duction of Gluck's "dance-opera" to our community November 9-11 because many of Ann Arbor's finest artists committed to working together three years ago to make it happen. Artistic director and choreographer Peter Sparling, music director Martin Katz, the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, UMS Choral Union, University of Michigan School of Music, Peter Sparling Dance Company, and local set and cos?tume designers have joined forces with a cast of renowned vocal soloists, enabling UMS to bring to the Michigan Theater stage one of the largest and most ambitious projects in UMS history. Those who saw the preview performances last May told us that this production of Orfeo is of such high quality that it could appear on the finest stages anywhere in America. This overwhelming positive response is one of the reasons we put Orfeo on UMS' 123rd Annual Choral Union Series along with the other world-class events that make up our oldest and most prestigious series. It deserves to be there.
I'd like to know your thoughts about the performance you're attending. I'd also like to learn from you about anything you feel we can do to make your experience with UMS the best possible. 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
Very best wishes,

Orfeo ed Euridice
Christoph Willibald Gluck
Born July 2, 1714 in Erasbach, near Weidenwang, in the Upper Palatinate, Germany
Died November 15, 1787 in Vienna
This weekend marks the UMS premiere performances ofGluck's Orfeo ed Euridice.
Gluck inherited a world of excess. Too many notes, too many flourishes, far too much virtuosity for pure virtuosity's sake on the part of the performers of his youth. He was determined to be a well-known and respected opera composer but seemed trapped in the ways of his predecessors. Singers and instru?mentalists used music to show themselves off, not the other way around, and rarely delved deeply into a story or an emotion. All twenty-nine operas Gluck wrote between 1741 and 1762 proved conventional in the extreme, fairly uninspired, even dull on occasion.
Then it happened: his thirtieth attempt gave birth to Orfeo ed Euridice, a work which forever changed the progress of opera, if not music altogether. The Greek legend, turned into an Italian libretto by Calzabigi, seems to have inspired the com?poser in music of consummate beauty and symmetry. It is not at all conventional, employing orchestrations never before attempted (Orfeo's aria in the Elysian Fields scene) and forms of Gluck's own devising which later composers would help them?selves to liberally and gratefully (the third act's aria for Euridice which turns into a duet and later back into an aria again).
Above all, Orfeo is simple, and never excessive when it can afford to be economi?cal. This music slices right through to the heart of the matter, for the most part depriving singers and orchestra of any opportunities for empty vanity. The vocal ranges are restricted and not particularly challenging, the choral and orchestral music
almost readable at first sight. But this is a simplicity which burns, not a facile or child?like variety. It permits the Message of the opera to remain shining and foremost in our minds and ears at all times. In rehearsals for our May 2001 workshop performance, our singers and dancers often referred to feeling "purified" or "cleansed," for such is the nature of Gluck's no-nonsense score.
It is easy to find three moments in Orfeo where a spray of notes--which could be called excessive--are needed for the "simple" effect required. This would seem to put the lie to what I have previously stated, but the composer has his reasons for occa?sionally varying his style. The Overture to the opera--which our director has decided to choreograph rather than have it played before a closed curtain--provides a feeling of celebration, of expectation. One could even go so far as to conjecture that in order to enhance the opening funeral chorus, Gluck needed as much festivity as he could muster. Historically, this overture looks backwards and resembles Gluck's earlier operas as well as operas by others. Perhaps Gluck has used it to set a context for what will never be the same again.
At the conclusion of our first act, Orfeo sets off for Hades to the strains of a florid, no-holds-barred aria of enormous range and virtuosity. But these techniques, never to be employed again in the opera, fully capture the bravado and mission of our hero; simple music would be out of place here and would fail to illustrate the situation. Lastly, the famous ballet, Dance of the Furies in act two, provides the orchestra with its most virtu-osic measures in the opera. What else could Gluck have employed to picture this terrify?ing world Coming after music of majesty, serenity and simplicity, these cascades of notes from the strings sound as terrifying today as they, no doubt, did centuries ago.
As always, when one chooses to pro?duce Gluck's Orfeo, there are problems with editions and arbitrary decisions must be
From his workshop on Olympus, Jupiter has seen Orfeo's grief and prepares with Amor's assistance to direct his fate on earth and below.
Act I
Euridice, Orfeo's beloved wife, has been killed by the sting of a snake. Nymphs and shep?herds join Orfeo in mourning her death at a funeral ceremony. Orfeo imagines her ghost calling to him from the underworld. With Echo at his side, he laments her loss. Moved by Orfeo's grief, Amor and her handmaidens intercede: Orfeo may retrieve Euridice from Hades if, with the sound of his music, he can placate the Furies and then return to the earth's surface without looking back at his wife. Otherwise, she will die. With renewed hope and determination, Orfeo prepares for his journey.
Act II, Scene 1
Orfeo crosses the River Styx and pacifies the terrible Furies, spirits of Hades, with his pleadings and beautiful music.
Act II, Scene 2
In the Elysian Fields, Euridice is lulled into blessed forgetfulness by the spirits. Orfeo appears, entranced by the beauty of the realm, and the spirits, along with Jupiter and Amor, grant him the hand of Euridice.
Act HI, Scene 1
Orfeo and Euridice pass upwards through a treacherous landscape. Unaware of Amor's con?ditions for her return to life, Euridice pleads with her husband to look back to her to prove his love. Unable to resist her any longer, Orfeo turns back and Euridice immediately falls life?less to the ground. Overwhelmed with grief, Orfeo prepares to stab himself; Amor appears and restores Euridice to life again. The couple thank Amor and rejoice in the delight of their love.
Act III, Scene 2
Jupiter conducts a grand celebration in the Temple of the God of Love.
made. Appetites in the various European cities in which it was performed were vastly different in the eighteenth century: castrati were allowed in one city, but not in another; more dance was favored in Paris, less in Vienna; a singer in one cast might not be up to certain tasks or might demand other music or other keys. Our production is an amalgam of the Parisian and Viennese ver?sions, sung in Italian, and capitalizing on our good fortune in securing Mme. Podles" participation, a singer capable of executing the most virtuosic demands imaginable. A bit of dance music has been removed, and a few pieces have been re-ordered.
Never before had dance assumed such a role in telling an opera's story. We have jointly tried to create for you a ballet-opera or an opera-ballet, whichever term you prefer. I believe you will hear text in the dancing and sense movement in the singing. Gluck's sublimely beautiful score has made this fusion possible and has rendered this tale fresh, and yet enduring, to all who are lucky enough to participate. Working on Orfeo has been a joy for all of us.
--Martin Katz, Music Director
hristoph Willibald Gluck had more than a hunch, I suspect: never before had dance played such a prominent role in the unfolding of an operatic narrative. It must have been in the air; in his 1750 treatise on danc?ing, Noverre had preached the virtues of a natural style, a living metaphor of the forces and organic movements of nature distin?guishing it from the merely ornamental, artificial or superficial. The moment the curtain opens on Gluck's sad funeral dirge, the shifting, weighted step of the burdened human body is everywhere. The phrasings of the music match the mourners' utter?ances, the heavy breath, the halting sobs or
long, low lunges and arched suspensions of the dancers as they create architecture of lamentation around the central bier.
Throughout Act 1, Gluck leaves the perfectly etched space for the dancing body to tell the story, to embody a landscape of grief and mystery through which Orfeo must pass to achieve his fate. And by the time we arrive in Act 2 to the famous "Dance of the Furies"--placed back to back with the "Dance of the Blessed Spirits"--we have one of the greatest mood swings in the history of music. Here, Gluck allows the dance to tell the story of Orfeo's inner and outer journey: of the shifting extremes of hell to heaven, fire to air, fear and terror to a kind of blessed and tranquil forgetfulness. Psychologically dramatic layerings in this dynamic score foreshadow innovations yet to be claimed over the next two centuries. And by the last scene, Gluck has our origi?nal mourners reappear as celebrants of a cosmic dance of sun and moon, reunion and rebirth, and the second marriage of Orfeo and Euridice. Everything comes full circle in this happy-ending version of the original tragic legend. Every rhythmic underpinning in the score is fitted to the sustained sweep or percussive whiplash of the dancer's body and to the emotional authenticity of the narrative.
This is a long-winded way of confessing that I have never had an easier time choreo?graphing to music. Gluck has handed me a gift over a 250-year gulf, and I have seized the opportunity to embody its exquisite music with a talented team of artistic col?laborators, including my company of devot?ed dancers. The true mark of the achieve?ment of twentieth-century dance is its expressive range as manifested in the unprecedented physicality and virtuosity of the dancers and the dances it has produced. Perhaps we are finally prepared to take on, re-interpret and realize musical scores as they never could have been before. Some
scores do not need our dances; others blossom into a kind of visual and visceral splendor. Gluck trusted the power of dance long before such arguments existed. I wish he could be here to see our new production. I wonder what he'd think
--Peter Sparling, Choreographer and Director
The Artists
he Peter Sparling Dance Company, founded in 1993, is Michigan's pre?miere modern dance company. Under artistic director Peter Sparling's leadership, the company has established an extensive repertory fea?turing works by Mr. Sparling and select guest choreographers. The Peter Sparling Dance Company presents a vast dancescape expressing human experience from the comic, tragic, and sublime, to the ecstatic, ethereal, and extraordinary. The seven-member troupe is a diverse mix of highly skilled dancers who excel in a variety of dance styles such as modern, ballet, and jazz, and have national and international performance experience.
Mr. Sparling's original choreography
incorporates innovative uses of text and original musical scores, as well as classical and popular music. He has created over one hundred dances in his thirty-one years in dance. As a veteran member of the Martha Graham and Jose Limon Dance Companies, Mr. Sparling's choreography is informed by the language and technique of these modern dance pioneers, which he transforms into his own eloquent, sensuous, and quirky style.
The Company's current season takes them to cultural and performing arts cen?ters throughout Michigan and the Midwest. The Peter Sparling Dance Company is a non-profit organization dedicated to the advancement of contemporary dance through performance and education. The Company is funded in part by the Michigan Council for Arts and Cultural Affairs, and recently received an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
This weekend's performances mark the Peter Sparling Dance Company's debut appearances under UMS auspices.
eter Sparling (Choreographerand Director) is a professor (1984-) and former chair (1988-95) of the University of Michigan Department of Dance and also Artistic Director of the Ann Arbor-based Peter Sparling Dance Company.

An avid writer and poet, he has written texts for performance and has been published in the Michigan Quarterly Review. His one-man show, Bodytalk: A Vaudeville for Dancing Man at Middle Age, will premiere at the 2002 Ann Arbor Summer Festival.
he Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra (A2SO) has been a part of Ann Arbor's cultural life for nearly sev?enty-five years. It was founded in 1928 by Joseph Maddy (founder of Interlochen Music Camp) as a "mom and pop" orchestra of committed and talented amateur musicians. Since 1986, the A2SO has been a fully professional orchestra, first under the baton of Carl St. Clair, followed by Sam Wong from 1992-1999. Over 275 individuals applied to succeed Maestro Wong, and through the diligent work of the A2SO Orchestra, Board and feedback from our community, five distinguished finalists were selected to conduct the orchestra dur?ing the 19992000 season.
Maestro Arie Lipsky, who conducted three sold-out Youth Concerts in March and
gave the premiere of Michigan's Millennium project Lokananta, was the unanimous choice of orchestra, board and community alike to lead the A2SO into the new century. He inaugurated his "Season of Firsts" in September 2000. A2SO concert attendance grew by fifteen percent during his first season, and at every opportunity Maestro Lipsky demonstrated consummate skill as an artist, performer, and communicator. Maestro Lipsky continues this distinguished and inspired music making by treating audi?ences to thrilling performances of Mahler, Mozart, Vivaldi, Foss, Tchaikovsky, Brahms and Hindemith. He has added to the new works performed by the Orchestra with the premiere of Eric Hachikian's College.
Audiences enjoy the compelling music created by the A2SO and delight in the soloists who grace our stage. Recent soloists include a mix of world-class artists who call Ann Arbor home such as Erling Blondal Bengtsson, Bella Hristova, Amy Porter and the U-M Gamelan Ensemble, as well as artists such as Angela Cheng, Jacques Israelievitch, Jaime Laredo and Richard Stolzman. We are proud to boast many soloists from within our own orchestra, including concertmaster Stephen Shipps.
A key component of A2SO's mission is education and outreach, and we are deeply committed to demonstrating musical excel?lence both inside the concert hall and well beyond it. Our in-school educational pro?grams and Youth Concerts reach over 16,500 area students each year. The A2SO is an official Partner for Excellence with the Ann Arbor Public Schools, and we continue to create standard-setting youth concert curricula that teach students about music while reinforcing vital skills such as literacy, logic, and pattern recognition. Pre-concert lectures and broadcasts of our concerts on WGTE radio help create an informed, dis?cerning audience of life-long learners. In April 2001, we inaugurated a Matinee
Musicale Series for senior citizens.
The A2SO is supported by volunteers, community members, foundations, local businesses and merchants. We take pride in a dedicated group of Board Members who come from all spheres of experience--doc?tors, educators, bankers, attorneys, commu?nity volunteers, business leaders and creative artists.
This weekend's performances mark the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra's thirty-fifth, thir?ty-sixth and thirty-seventh appearances under UMS auspices.

isa Saffer (Amore), described by Leighton Kerner as "one of those special singers whose technique and blooming sound always serves sense and emotion," delves into repertoire ranging from Handel to Zimmermann with remarkable incisiveness and musicality. Renowned for her interpretation of twentieth-century repertoire, English National Opera mounts its first production of Berg's Lulu for Lisa Saffer this season. Paul Daniel will conduct the Richard Jones production. Acknowledged as a leading per?former of the works of Oliver Knussen, Ms.
Saffer will be heard in many performances of the composer's works during his fifti?eth birthday celebra?tion season. She will debut with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra in performances of Berg's "Three
Fragments" from Wozzeck and Knussen's Whitman Settings conducted by Oliver Knussen. She will also perform Knussen's Higglety Pigglety Pop! with the Schoenberg Ensemble at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam and with the London Sinfonietta at Queen Elizabeth Hall in London. Lisa Saffer's recording of the work with Maestro Knussen and the London Sinfonietta was recently released by DGG. The soprano also adds the role of Tytania in Britten's A Midsummer Night's Dream to her repertoire in her Florentine Opera debut. Future contemporary opera productions include the New York premiere of Charles Wuorinen's Haroun and the Sea of Stories at the New York City Opera in which she will perform the role of Haroun.
Also acclaimed for her appearances in Early Music, Lisa Saffer will join the Mark Morris Dance Company and the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra for performances of Rameau's Platee (roles of Thalie and Clarine). The California performances will be con?ducted by Nicholas McGegan. This season Ms. Saffer will also collaborate with Maestro McGegan and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra in a program of Handel arias. She will perform the role of Amor in Gluck's Orfeo ed Euridice under the auspices of the prestigious University Musical Society at the University of Michigan in her hometown of Ann Arbor. Lisa Saffer also returns to Glimmerglass Opera for her first perfor?mances as Angelica in Haydn's Orlando
Paladino. Guido Johannes Rumstadt will conduct the James Robinson production, which will also be produced at the New York City Opera with Ms. Saffer in a future sea?son. She adds the role of Cleopatra in Handel's Giulio Cesare to her repertoire in a future production at Utah Opera.
The preeminent interpreter of the role of Marie in Zimmermann's challenging Die Soldaten, the soprano received international acclaim for the role in the New York pre?miere of the opera at the New York City Opera, which was followed by equally her?alded performances at the Opera de Bastille in Paris (under conductor Berhard Kontarsky) and at the English National Opera (under conductor Elgar Howarth) in the London stage premiere. The review of her performance in The Nation read, "Among many superb performers, Lisa Saffer's Marie was in a class by herself: unfailingly effective she sang the fearsomely difficult part without a hesitant note or accent--true, direct, lyrical...."
Lisa Saffer is equally well known for her performances in the operas of Handel, many of which have been released on the Harmonia Mundi label. Her first explo?ration of the early operatic repertoire was in the Stephen Wadsworth productions of The Return of Ulysses (Minerva) and The Coronation of Poppea (Poppea) at the Skylight Opera in Milwaukee. Performances of Jenny and Polly Peachum in The Beggar's Opera at the Santa Fe Opera, and Belinda in Dido and Aeneas (directed by Mark Morris) at the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) (all conducted by Nicholas McGegan) fol?lowed. She also performed Drusilla in Poppea in the Jonathan Miller production at BAM, at Glimmerglass she portrayed the title role of Partenope conducted by Harry Bickett and the title role in the Simon Callow production of Cavalli's Calisto, which was conducted by Jane Glover. At the Boston Early Music Festival she performed
Iole in Cavalli's Hercules. She also performed the role of Antigona in the rarely performed Admeto with Emmanuel Music in Boston.
Ms. Saffer's discography includes the Grammophone Award-winning recording of Handel's Ariodante, as well as Agrippina, Ottone, and Radimisto, Purcell's Dido & Aeneas, and her solo aria recording Arias for Cuzzoni. She has also recorded Knussen's Hums and Songs for Winnie-the-Pooh with The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center for Virgin Classics, Imbrie's Requiem with the Riverside Symphony and Bright Sheng's Three Chinese Love Songs for New World Records. Most recently she has recorded Knussen's Higglety Pigglety Pop and Where the Wild Things Are with the London Sinfonietta for DGG and Xanthe in Richard Strauss' Die Liebe der Danae with the American Symphony Orchestra for Telarc. Her appearance in the New York City Opera production of A Little Night Music was televised on Live From Lincoln Center and she has appeared as a guest artist on the Garrison Keillor radio program on NPR.
Lisa Saffer was awarded the Diva Award by the New York City Opera, in addition to winning the Anna Case Mackay Award as an apprentice at the Santa Fe Opera. Ms. Saffer was a national finalist in the Metropolitan Opera auditions, a Central City Opera Studio Artist, and a recipient of a 1988 National Music Theater Institute encourage?ment grant. She holds a Bachelor's Degree in Music from Oberlin College Conservatory, and a Masters in Music and Artist Diploma from New England Conservatory. Ms. Saffer currently resides in Boston.

Zwei nordische Weisen
(Two Nordic Melodies), Op. 63
Edvard Grieg
Born June 15, 1843 in Bergen, Norway Died September 4, 1907 in Bergen
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere of Grieg's Zwei nordische Weisen (Two Nordic Melodies), Op. 63.
As with all great "nationalist" composers, Grieg's use of native musical materials always transcends mere "local color" and reveals the universal significance of the par?ticular tradition involved. In Two Nordic Melodies, a product of Grieg's mature years, the way the original tunes were arranged is no less fascinating than the tunes themselves.
The first melody, incidentally, is not really a traditional tune but was instead written by Fredrik Due, the music-loving Parisian ambassador of Sweden-Norway (forming a union at the time). The folk-inspired melody seems to have been influenced by Grieg himself: its rhythmic shape is strongly remi?niscent of Solveig's song from Peer Gynt. What makes this little tune take its full effect is the way Grieg scored it, first for alternating violas and cellosbasses without any accom?paniment, then in a series of variations with increasingly rich harmonies and embellish?ments culminating in a full-bodied fortissimo which immediately collapses into pianissimo.
The second movement unites two folk melodies, both previously arranged by Grieg for solo piano in Twenty-Five Norwegian Folksongs and Dances, Op. 17 (1869). The gentle pastoral melody of the "Cow-call" serves as an introduction to the lively "Peasant Dance," in which a violin solo imi?tates the Norwegian fiddle while the rest of the strings provide energetic chords and rhythmic figurations. (The same melody was used by Igor Stravinsky as the "Wedding Song," the third movement of his Four Norwegian Moods of 1942.)
Terje Bjorklund
Born 1945 in Narvik, Norway
Tonight's performance marks the VMS premiere of Bjerklund's Sarek.
After a work by Grieg, we shall hear a com?position about which one critic has written: "This music has lyrical sections that take your breath away--and the strong melodic profile sounds like updated Grieg." Terje Bjorklund brings at least two new elements with which to "update Grieg" (other than being 102 years younger): first of all, his background is in jazz, having combined classical composition with a successful career as a jazz pianist for years. Second, he is from Narvik in the far north of Norway where Grieg, who lived in Bergen about 600 miles to the south, never set foot his entire life. Bjorklund now lives and teaches in Trondheim, a much larger city in central Norway that is still a long distance from Bergen and Oslo in the more densely popu?lated South.
Bjorklund has written numerous instru?mental works including Morene for sym?phony orchestra, a Magnificat for soloists, choir and orchestra, and a chamber opera after the classic Norwegian author Knut Hamsun. Sarek, written for solo violin and string orchestra in 1989, was dedicated to Bjarne Fiskum, leader of the Trondheim Soloists. Sarek was commissioned by the Trondheim Conservatory of Music with support from the Norwegian Department of Culture.
Sarek is Europe's largest national park, located in the mountains of Northern Sweden, not far from the Norwegian border. The vast wilderness, with its forbidding glaciers, streams abounding in rapids and herds of giant elk and moose, is one of the last remaining natural sanctuaries where nothing is being done to facilitate tourist
access. Judging from photographs, however, the landscape is of breathtaking beauty, and it is no wonder that it inspired a composer born in that part of the world.
Bjorklund's work begins with a plaintive minor-second motif in which melodic half-steps are piled up to form tone clusters. The melodic phrases get longer and the tempo faster, but--after a cadenza-like solo for the first cellist--another very short motif appears, this time involving very rapid repe?titions of single pitches and chords, using so-called spiccato (short, off-the-string) strokes. The melody "freezes," as it were. Eventually, the plaintive opening returns, followed by the "frozen" repeated chords at half their original speed. After a crescendo and a decrescendo, the work ends on a clus?ter-like sonority made up of neighboring notes in the scale, as if it had gradually spent all its energy.
Sonata in g minor
Giuseppe Tartini
Born April 8, 1692 in Pirano, Istria
(now Piran, Slovenia) Died February 26,1770 in Padua
Tonight's performance marks the ninth UMS performance ofTartini's Sonata in g minor. Violinist William Luderer gave the UMS premiere of the Sonata in December 1883.
Tartini's Sonata in g minor is one of the best-known representatives of the rich Italian violin literature from the Baroque period. The composer spent many years as the concertmaster at St. Anthony's basilica in Padua (known for its famous Giotto paintings). He left over 100 violin concertos and dozens of sonatas, in addition to sacred vocal works and theoretical writings, but nothing captured the imagination of poster?ity more than the Sonata in g minor and the dream story in which it supposedly origi-
nated. The many adventures of his life became the subject of several fictionalized biographies, including one by the celebrated American violinist Albert Spalding, entitled A Fiddle, a Sword and a Lady--which sums up Tartini's three main areas of expertise.
It is not known exactly when Tartini wrote the Sonata in g minor. The tradition?ally accepted date (1713) is now thought to be several decades too early for stylistic rea?sons. Tartini adopted the four-movement church-sonata format (slow-fast-slow-fast) as established by Corelli, but introduced some interesting innovations. The opening movement follows the rhythmic pattern of the siciliano; the subsequent fast movement begins with a typical Baroque concerto idea but is actually worked out in something more closely resembling Classical sonata form. The very brief third movement is-surprisingly--incorporated in the finale, which also contains the famous "devil's trills."
Tartini's dream, as recounted to his friend, the French astronomer Joseph de Lalande:
I dreamed one night that I made a pact with the devil. In return for my soul, the devil promised to be at my side whenever I needed him, anticipating my every wish. On a whim, I handed him my violin, to see what kind of musician he might be. To my astonishment, the music he made was exquisite--a sonata of such unearthly skill and beauty that I stood transfixed as he played. My pulse stopped, breath failed me--and I awoke. Snatching up a fiddle, I tried to recapture the sounds I'd heard. Feverishly, before I should forget, I noted down the music of the sonata. But though it is the best I ever composed, how poor, how far inferior it is to the music the devil played in my tantalizing dream!
The Four Seasons, Op. 8, Nos. 1-4, from II a'mento dell'armom'a e dell invenzione
Antonio Vivaldi
Bom March 4, 1678 in Venice Died July 28, 1741 in Vienna
Tonight's performance marks the seventh complete UMS performance of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Op. 8. Virtuosi di Roma gave the UMS premiere of The Four Seasons in March 1956.
Born in Venice in 1678, Vivaldi was ordained as a priest in 1703 (he was widely known as ilprete rosso, or "the red-haired priest"), but never actually served in any ecclesiastical capacity. He had studied the violin with his father, who played at St. Mark's, and in 1703 became maestro di violino at an institution named Ospedale della Pieta that was devoted to the musical education of orphaned girls. Many of the girls played at an extremely high level, and Vivaldi was soon able to pre?sent performances at the Pieta that drew large audiences from the ranks of Venetian nobility and visitors from out of town. Many of Vivaldi's instrumental works were written for the Pieta, but they started circu?lating much more widely after he started publishing them in 1705. In 1711, Etienne Roger, a publisher in Amsterdam, brought out twelve of Vivaldi's concertos under the title L'estro armonico (Harmonic Inspiration). From this time on, Vivaldi was famous all over Europe. In Germany, J.S. Bach tran?scribed several Vivaldi concertos for key?board and Bach's original concertos often show the Italian composer's influence.
Vivaldi did more than any other composer to develop and to codify the Baroque con?certo. He established many of the concerto's standard features such as its three-move?ment (fast-slow-fast) structure, its orchestral ritornellos (which punctuate that structure), lyrical (usually short) slow movements, and spirited finales often using dance rhythms. These rules, however, left a lot of room for
variety, and in fact, Vivaldi's ingenuity in handling musical form and his melodic invention seem endless.
Vivaldi's most popular concertos are, without a doubt, the four for violin known as The Four Seasons. They were published in 1725 as part of a collection entitled cimento dell'armonia e dell'inventione (The Test of Harmony and Invention). If The Four Seasons are not the earliest example of program music, they are definitely among the boldest musical experiments of the eighteenth centu?ry. Vivaldi, displaying no mean poetic gifts, composed a sonnet about each season, and inscribed the poems into the score, indicating precisely when the events mentioned took place in the music. At the same time, despite all the storms, singing birds, barking dogs, and stumbling drunkards, Vivaldi managed to hold the concertos together musically and preserve the basic n'torHeZo-episode alterna?tion characteristic of the genre.

Vivaldi's Poems
accompanying The Four Seasons (prose translations)
Spring has come and joyfully the birds greet it with happy song, while the streams flow along with gentle murmur as the zephyrs blow. There come, shrouding the air with a black cloak, lightning and thunder chosen to herald [the storm]; then, when these are silent, the little birds return to their melodi?ous incantations.
And now, in the pleasant, flowery meadow, to the soft murmur of leaves and plants, the goatherd sleeps with his faithful dog at his side.
To the festive sound of a pastoral bagpipe, nymphs and shepherds dance under their beloved roof, greeting the glittering arrival of the spring.
In the harsh season scorched by the sun, man and flock languish, and the pine is on fire; the cuckoo begins to call and soon after, the turtledove and the goldfinch are heard singing. Zephyr gently blows, but Boreas suddenly enters into a contest with his neighbor, and the little shepherd weeps for he fears the awesome threatening storm and his fate.
To his tired limbs rest is denied by the fear of lightning, awesome thunder, and the furi?ous swarms of flies and hornets!
Alas, his fears are justified. The sky is filled with thunder and lightning and hail cuts down the proud grain.
The peasant celebrates the pleasure of the happy harvest with dances and songs and inflamed by the liquor of Bacchus, many end their rejoicing with sleep.
The mild pleasant air makes all abandon dance and song; this is the season that invites all to the sweet delights of peaceful sleep.
The hunters, at the break of dawn,1 set forth with horns, guns, and hounds. The animal flees, and they follow its tracks. Already frightened and tired by the great noise of guns and hounds, the wounded animal makes a weak attempt at fleeing, but it is overcome and dies.
Trembling with cold amidst the freezing snow, while a frightful wind harshly blows, running and stamping one's feet every minute, and feeling one's teeth chatter from the extreme cold;
Spending quiet contented days by the fire while the rain outside drenches people by the hundreds.
Walking on ice, and moving cautiously, with slow steps, for fear of falling, spinning around, slipping, falling down, again walk?ing on ice and running fast until the ice cracks and splits; hearing Sirocco, Boreas and all the winds at war burst forth from the bolted doors--this is winter, but it also brings joy!
n January 2000, the German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter made musical history in New York City when she undertook the most significant pro?ject of her career: a festival entitled Back to the Future. It comprised two recitals with pianist Lambert Orkis at Carnegie Hall and three orchestral programs with the New York Philharmonic and Maestro Kurt Masur, eight concerts in all within the space of twelve days.
Offering a retrospect of the violin reper?tory of the entire twentieth century, Back to the Future featured the music of fourteen composers including several works com?posed for and dedicated to Ms. Mutter. The festival's stunning success took the public and critical press by storm: "Her perfor?mance was, altogether, a triumph," said the New York Times. Three months later Ms. Mutter repeated her achievement with equally jubilant responses in London, Frankfurt, and Stuttgart.
This summer, Ms. Mutter undertook a residency at the Lucerne International Festival which included the Berg Violin Concerto with Mariss Jansons and the Oslo Philharmonic, the Mozart concerti with the Camerata Salzburg under her musical direc?tion, a recital with Lambert Orkis that fea?tured the world premiere of Sir Andre Previn's Tango Song and Dance, and her first trio chamber music concerts in many years (with Lambert Orkis and cellist Lynn Harrell).
The Lucerne Festival holds a unique position in Ms. Mutter's career since her international concert debut occurred there twenty-five years ago and led to a decade of music collaboration with the legendary con?ductor Herbert von Karajan.
She returned to New York earlier this November to perform and to lead the com?plete Mozart violin concerti in two concerts at Carnegie Hall with the Camerata Salzburg. Violist Yuri Bashmet joined her for the Sinfonia Concertante.
The next evening, Ms. Mutter performed a third Carnegie Hall concert including Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and Tartini's Sonata in g minor with the Trondheim Soloists, an eminent Norwegian chamber orchestra with whom she has recorded both works. The Trondheim Soloists made their North American debut with this concert which includes a nine-concert cross-country tour of the US performing alongside of Ms. Mutter.
She returns to Europe to close 2001 with performances of the Mozart violin concerti in December with the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Colin Davis.
Ms. Mutter is scheduled to begin 2002 with a recording of Song and Dance includ?ing works by Gershwin, Brahms, Previn, Faure and Kreisler followed by concerts with the Israel Philharmonic and Kurt Masur. In March 2002, Ms. Mutter will give the world premiere of Sir Andre Previn's Violin Concerto with the Boston Symphony, the composer conducting.
The remainder of 2002 features European tours with the Camerata Salzburg, the London Symphony, the world premiere of a work written for Ms. Mutter by Henri Dutilleux and Salzburg Festival concerts of all the Mozart concerti with the Vienna Philharmonic.
Her long list of recording honors includes several Grammy Awards, the Grand Prix du Disque, and Holland's Edison Award. She won the 2000 Grammy Award for "Best Chamber Music Recording" for the complete Beethoven Sonatas for Piano and Violin with Lambert Orkis; in addition, her release of Penderecki's Violin Concerto No. 2 with the London Symphony Orchestra con?ducted by the composer achieved the singu?lar distinction of winning two Grammy Awards for "Best Instrumental Soloist Performance with Orchestra" and for "Best Classical Contemporary Composition." Earlier, she had won a Grammy for her recording of the Berg Violin Concerto, cou?pled with Wolfgang Rihm's Time Chant.
Ms. Mutter has a keen interest in con?temporary violin literature and has signifi?cantly expanded the repertory for her instrument. Witold Lutoslawski, Krzysztof Penderecki, Wolfgang Rihm, Norbert Moret, and Sebastian Currier have all composed and dedicated works to her. Over the next few years, she will give the premiere of works by Andre Previn, Pierre Boulez, Sofia Gubaidulina, and Sebastian Currier.
In 1987 Ms. Mutter established the Rudolf Eberle Endowment, which supports talented young string players throughout Europe. In 1998 this was incorporated into the Munich-based Circle of Friends of the Anne-Sophie Foundation to support talent?ed young string players worldwide.
Ms. Mutter has a strong commitment to the social and medical problems of our time and supports work in these fields through regular benefit concerts. A February 2001 concert assisted the restoration of a church in Aurach; in October 2001 a benefit concert in Baden-Baden will aid a psychiatric insti?tution for children in Saratov on the Volga; and a concert next year will aid the Johanniter Day Clinic for Child and Youth Psychiatry in Neuwied. In past years she has supported the rebuilding of the
Thomaskirche in Leipzig, as well as Beethoven's Birthplace in Bonn. During recent tours of the US, Ms. Mutter donated part of her recital earnings to Classical Action: Performing Arts Against Aids. Ms. Mutter holds the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic of Germany, Bavaria and of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
Tonight's performance marks Anne-Sophie Mutter's fourth appearance under UMS auspices. She last appeared in Ann Arbor in recital with Lambert Orkis in February 2000 in Hill Auditorium.
he Trondheim Soloists chamber orchestra was founded in 1988 by violinist Bjarne Fiskum. The orchestra consists of young, extremely talented musicians; some are still students, and have already established an excellent international reputation. Their youthful freshness and vibrant musical joy and enthusiasm is praised in reviews after concerts in England, France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Brazil, Japan, and, of course, in the Nordic countries. In the spring of 1999, the orchestra did a five-week tour in Europe with violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter, presenting Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and Tartini's Sonata in g minor, these concerts have been described by critics as demonstrations of "a unique, musical relationship," a statement seconded by Anne-Sophie Mutter as she recorded the same works with the Trondheim Soloists. Deutsche Grammophon released the record?ing and video of The Four Seasons in October 1999.
In addition to the recording of The Four Seasons, the Trondheim Soloists have recorded the complete string music of Edvard Grieg. The ensemble's recordings have gathered glowing reviews in Gramophone, Fanfare, Fono Forum, Classic-CD and
Diapson-Harmonie. The latter honored the Trondheim Soloists with the prestigious French Diapson D'Or award for the record?ing of Grieg's String Quartet No. 1 in g minor, Op. 27, arranged for chamber orchestra by Bjarne Fiskum.
Tonight's performance marks the Trondheim Soloists' UMS debut.
The violinist, Bjarne Fiskum, got his musi?cal education after studies in Oslo, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Vienna and made his debut in Oslo in 1965. He started his career as a violinist with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra in 1960 and was alternate concertmaster during the period 1965-73. He was concertmaster of the Trondheim Symphony Orchestra from 1975 to 1984 and has toured extensively, both as a soloist and chamber musician. In 1995 he received the Lindeman Prize, the most pres?tigious music award in Norway.
In 1975, Bjarne Fiskum founded the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra and the Trondheim Soloists in 1988. Since 1983, he has also been working as professor at the Music Conservatory in Trondheim and is considered to be one of Norway's finest instructors.
As Artistic Director of the Trondheim Soloists, Mr. Fiskum develops the individual qualities of each soloist before bringing them together in an orchestra of the highest international quality.
Tonight's performance marks Bjarne Fiskum's UMS debut.

I have always believed art is the conscience of the human soul and that artists have the responsibility not only to show life as it is but to show life as it should be. For a quarter of a century, Sweet Honey In The Rock has withstood the onslaught. She has been unprovoked by the thrity pieces of silver. Her songs lead us to the well of truth that nourishes the will and courage to stand strong. She is the keeper of the flame. --Harry Belafonte
weet Honey In The Rock now begins another season, still on the journey more than a quarter of a century after her first concert per?formance at Howard University, November 1973. According to music histori?an Horace Boyer writing in the introduction to Continuum, the name Sweet Honey In The Rock has it's own unique history:
On February 28,1927 in Memphis, Tennessee, the blind sanctified singer Mamie Forehand recorded a refrain based on Psalm 81:16. In this passage of scripture, the poet and musician David advised his people that if they would serve the Lord, they would be rewarded by being fed 'honey out of the rock....' While Forehand titled her song, Honey in the Rock and sang those words, ran?dom congregations soon added the adjective "sweet" to the title, and the song has come down through history as "Sweet Honey In The Rock."
Growing up in Southwest Georgia, Bernice Johnson Reagon heard the song sung by quartets, and although she had never sung it herself, it was a song that was constantly singing in her head as she called together a group of the strongest singers from her vocal workshop with the DC Black Repertory Company. It was 1973, and that evening the first song she taught the group was Sweet Honey In The Rock. After they got the chorus harmony just right, I said, "that's the name of the group," then I had to call my father, a Baptist minister, and ask him
the song's meaning. He told me that it was a sacred parable, and that the parable itself was not found in the Bible, but it told of a land so rich that when you cracked the rocks, honey flowed from them. I can still remember how comforting I felt about the idea of singing inside of such an active pow?erful phrase.
As Sweet Honey evolved into an ensem?ble of African American women, so did their understanding of the legacy of African American women in the struggle for the survival and continuance of their people was, that land that was so rich, that when one cracked the rock, honey flowed forth.
This past season has given the group sev?eral new opportunities, one of the most moving being the ensemble's participation in creating the soundtrack for a film pro?duced by the Documentary Institute at the University of Florida. Narrated by Ruby Dee and Ossie Davis, the documentary, Freedom Never Dies, tells the story of Harry T. Moore, a state leader for the NAACP in Florida who spearheaded the voter registra?tion of African Americans in that state dur?ing the 1940s and was the key unrelenting voice in demanding an end to racist prac?tices in the state. His work was driven by his belief that one had to work and organize to create change: "Freedom never descends upon people, it is always bought with a price." A bomb assassinated Moore and his wife on Christmas Eve in 1951. Langston Hughes wrote the "Ballad of Harry T. Moore" and read it at a memorial in New York City held by the NAACP. Bernice
Johnson Reagon was asked to look at the ballad and set it to music, using the African American folk ballad style perfected by the Golden Gate Quartet. Ms. Reagon set the ballad to music and Sweet Honey recorded it for the score. Additional music was com?posed and performed by Ms. Reagon and her daughter, Toshi Reagon. The piece, Strange Fruit, was written for Aisha Kahlil of Sweet Honey. The story is particularly important because the Moores' work and death has been left out of most historical accounts depciting the organization of the Civil Rights Movement. Sweet Honey con?siders it an honor to assist in the correction of this oversight.
Tempere, Finland's Vocal Festival, is built around an international competition of mostly a capella choirs, choruses, and small ensembles. At the end of each day, sessions of competition groups gather to hear virtu?oso performances by singers from all over the world. Sweet Honey In The Rock trav?eled to Finland this past June to perform their special repertoire of African American vocal singing for this special audience of singers.
With work extending beyond the concert stage, Sweet Honey was featured in the soundtrack of the HBO TV movie, Boycott, a 2001 film about the historic 381-day Montgomery Bus Boycott sparked by the arrest of Rosa Parks. This momentous boy?cott resulted in the rise to leadership of the Reverend Martin Luther King, Jr., and the US Supreme Court decision declaring the practice of segregated seating on Alabama's buses illegal. The film soundtrack features Aaron Neville and Sweet Honey performing Ella 5 Song, composed by Ms. Reagon in tribute to organizer-activist Ella Baker, who worked in Montgomery during the boycott.
With composer James Horner, Sweet Honey created and recorded the soundtrack for the film Freedom Song, produced by Danny Glover and directed by Phil
Robinson. This project tells the story of Bob Moses and student organizers of the SNCC (Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee) arriving in McComb, Mississippi to join with local leaders and students to launch a voter registration cam?paign.
Sweet Honey continued her annual young people's concerts in honor of the Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday, with perfor?mances in Boston sponsored by the Algebra Project and MIT; in New York City at the Washington Irving High School; and in their home base of Washington, DC, at the Union Temple Baptist Church. This week?end of events was capped by a live appear?ance on ABC's Good Morning America, on the actual holiday morning.
The group's latest recording, Still the Same Me (Rounder Records) was nominated for a Grammy Award and received the Silver Award from the National Association of Parenting Publications.
Carol Lynn Maillard, an original mem?ber of Sweet Honey, closes her historical essay in Continuum speaking of the energies that have held the group steady: "As we move ahead into Sweet Honey's future, we take not only the voices of all the women who have sung on a Sweet Honey stage (there have been twenty-two), but we also take the love of everyone who has supported us over the years."
Tonight's performance marks Sweet Honey In The Rock's fourth appearance under UMS auspices.
Ysaye Maria Bamwell is a native New Yorker now living in Washington, DC. Since 1979, she has performed with Sweet Honey In The Rock and written many of the ensembles contemporary compositions. Dr. Barnwell spends much of her time off stage working as a master teacher and choral clin?ician in cultural performance theory. She has conducted her workshop, Building a Vocal Community: Singing in the African American Tradition for both singers and non-singers all over the US, Great Britain and Australia. A prolific composer, Dr. Barnwell has been commissioned to create a number of dance, choral, film, and stage productions. As an actress her credits include a principle role on the television series A Man Called Hawk and an appear?ance in the film Beloved, directed by Jonathan Demme. Barnwell produced Twenty-Five... (RYKP Records), Sweet Honey's twenty-fifth anniversary recording, served as editor of Continuum: The First Songbook of Sweet Honey In The Rock (A CappellaHal Leonard, 1999). Her first chil?dren's book, No Mirrors In My Nana's House (Harcourt Brace, 1998) based on her com?position by the same name, was illustrated by Synthia Saint James. Um Humm (Windhorse ProductionsSounds True Label), her recording of personal and tradi?tional stories and songs, was released in 2000.
Nitanju Bolade Casel came to Sweet Honey bringing her unique performance experi?ence in African vocal styles, jazz, improvisa-tional rhythms, and hip-hop after four years of study, performance and cultural organiz?ing in Dakar, Senegal. While in Africa, Ms. Casel co-founded with Marie Guinier, ADEA (Artistes des Echanges Africaines), an organization dedicated to the exchange of ideas and services between African artists of the diaspora. Joining Sweet Honey in 1985, she has expanded the ensemble's repertoire
through her original compositions and con?temporary arrangements of traditional African songs. Her extensive training, research, and teaching experience in African-derived traditions has its base in those pioneering communities of the late sixties which led the way to redefining and making accessible African expressive culture in the US. Bolade's compositions have been included in: World of Music (Silver Burdett and Ginn), a textbook for children, and The Box, a TV pilot from Robert de Niro's Tribeca Production Company. Ms. Casel also appeared in the Smithsonian produc?tion, Duke Ellington's Great Ladies of Song. She is currently co-director, with her sister Aisha Kahlil, of First World Productions, a cultural and educational performance arts organization. Ms. Casel made her film debut in Beloved directed by Jonathan Demme. Nitanju Bolade Casel is wife of Mfundishi Tayari Casel and mother of Obadele Jumoke Ajamu Jaja Bayete Casel.
Aisha Kahlil joined Sweet Honey in 1981. As an experienced performer of jazz-African song and dance traditions, she moved the ensemble into new ground in the explo?ration of vocal improvisation. Ms. Kahlil is Sweet Honey's strongest blues singer, a genre she had not explored before coming to the group. In 1994, CASA (Contemporary A Capella Society of America) named Ms. Kahlil "Best Soloist" for her performances of "See See Rider" and "Fulani Chant." Some of the group's most innovative and experimen?tal work occurs in the performance of her compositions including "Fulani Chant," "Wodaabe Nights," and "Mystic Ocean." "Wodaabe Nights" was included in the 1998 PBS film series, Africans in America, pro?duced, by WGBH TV. "Fulani Chant" has also been included in the soundtracks of Down in the Delta, directed by Maya Angelou, and Climb Against the Odds, a film produced by the Breast Cancer Fund. In her
work as a performing artist and master teacher in voice and dance, Ms. Kahlil spe?cializes in the integration of traditional and contemporary forms of music, dance and theater. Her credits as vocalist and dancer include: the Raymond Sawyer Dance Theater, Sounds of Awareness, Sundance, and the African Heritage Dancers and Drummers. She has taught at the Institute for Contemporary Dance, Leslie College, Dance Works, Dance Place, Joy of Motion, and the Levine School of Music. Ms. Kahlil is currently at work on a recording project of her original compositions and arrange?ments.

If Music Be the Food of Love, Play On...
by Linda Kobler
"If music be the food of love, play on..." (Shakespeare, Twelfth Night, 1.1.1). Music is the food of love--comfort food, to be pre?cise. No matter how restless or disquieted we feel, music gathers us around a warm hearth for hearty nourishment. The songs on tonight's program--ranging from the sweetness of Thomas Campion to the bitter?ness of John Dowland--represent just such food for the soul. Many are taken from the famous 1610 collection A Musical Banquet (compiled by Robert Dowland, John's son), and as that title suggests, they are indeed a veritable feast of unrequited love, consum?mated love, and everything in between.
For Elizabethans, song was as basic as their daily bread--an integral part of every?day life. An educated person was expected to be able to sing--and it is no wonder, when William Bathe could boast in his Brief Introduction to the Skill of Song (1587) that he habitually taught people to sing in less than a month! Bathe claimed that he even taught a child of eight "to sing a good num?ber of songs, difficult...songs, to sing at the first sight...." So much was singing taken for granted that the character Philomathes (in Thomas Morley's A Plaine and Easie Introduction to Practicall Musicke, 1597) suffers a humiliating loss of face when his ignorance is uncovered by friends: "Supper being ended and music books (according to the custom) being brought to the table, the mistress of the house presented me with a part earnestly requesting me to sing; but when, after many excuses, I protested unfeignedly, that I could not, every one began to wonder; yea, some whispered to others demanding how I was brought up, so that upon shame of mine ignorance I go now to seek out mine old friend Master Gnorimus, to make myself his scholar.
Farewell, for I sit upon thorns till I be gone, therefore I will make haste."
A lack of musical prowess was definitely a thorn in ones side, but so, it seems, was its opposite. Displaying great musical skill was considered unbecoming and gauche among cultured amateurs. Though music was a necessity, it was also regarded as a nicety-not to be taken too seriously. Social chroni?clers going back to Castiglione (The Book of the Courtier, 1528), urged sophisticated dilettantes to hone their musical skills to perfection, but at the same time taught them to affect a studied nonchalance, a fash?ionable casualness, in performance. They must never seem to be crossing over the border to the status of a professional musi?cian, which could lower their social stand?ing. "Therefore," wrote Castiglione, "let the Courtier turn to music as to a pastime, and as though forced, and not in the presence of persons of low birth or where there is a crowd. And although he may know and understand what he does, in this also I would have him dissimulate the care and effort that is required in doing anything well; and let him appear to esteem but little this accomplishment of his, yet by perform?ing it excellently well, make others esteem it highly."
Music lessons often began in childhood, and the English earned a reputation throughout Europe for being extraordinarily well trained. By far the most popular instru?ment taken up by the Elizabethans was the lute, which was apparently played by the Queen herself; several portraits depict her holding the instrument. So common was the lute that it is said to have been provided in barber shops, where it was offered to waiting clients so that they might amuse themselves--much as we would pick up a magazine in a salon today. The lute was prized as a versatile instrument capable of rendering complicated counterpoint as well as simple accompaniments.
The lute was particularly beloved in combination with voice. "But especially," says Messer Federico in Castiglione's Courtier, "it is singing poetry with the lute that seems to me most delightful, as this gives to the words a wonderful charm and effectiveness." This combination of sung poetry with lute accompaniment was known as the "lute song" (also called the "lute ayre," or simply ayre), a genre that enjoyed a vogue in England from around the 1590s and lasted about twenty-five years. The courtier Robert Devereux--famous for a long and uneasy relationship with Queen Elizabeth, which ended in his death sen?tence--wrote a handful of poems, including "Change thy mind since she doth change," set by the obscure Richard Martin.
Anthony Holborne (the dedicatee of Dowland's "I saw my lady weep"), though known mainly as a lutenist, contributed to the lute song genre with his melancholic ayre "My heavy sprite, oppress'd with sor?row's might," the first song in tonight's A Musical Banquet. Contemporary drama had its fair share of lute songs, and Robert Johnson was closely associated with music for plays and masques by Shakespeare, Campion, and other leading writers of the Elizabethan era. "Have you seen the bright lily grow," attributed to Johnson, appeared in The Devil Is an Ass, a play by Shakespeare's friend and rival Ben Jonson.
The brilliance of the prolific poet and songwriter Thomas Campion is clearly evi?dent in his songs. Campion, who studied law and medicine, is unique among his con?temporaries for having written all the words for his own songs. His poetry is a perfect fit for his music, being both witty and delight?ful without relying on cliches. He even goes so far as to reject cliches in his own songs. "My sweetest lesbia," like so many of Campion's songs, has a text indebted to clas?sical antiquity--in this case, a poem by Catullus, which Campion adapts for his
opening stanza.
Prolific as Campion was, it was John Dowland who brought the lute song to its apogee. The premiere lutenist of his time, Dowland was celebrated throughout Europe, and his works were printed in sev?eral volumes between 1597 and 1612, in addition to being included in numerous compilations and manuscripts. Dowland lived and worked primarily abroad, not securing a steady position in his homeland until late in life. The motto Semper Dowland, Semper Dolens (the title of one of Dowland's pieces) reflects the deep melan?choly that suffused Dowland's personality and colored his musical expression, particu?larly the ayres included in tonight's program.
Not surprisingly, the dolorous song "Flow, my tears"--also famous as a dance entitled "Lachrimae" (literally, "tears")--was Dowland's best-known work; several of Dowland's greatest contemporaries made their own arrangements of it. The opening teardrop motif on the words "Flow, my tears" and its haunting conclusion ("Happy, happy they that in hell Feel not the world's despite") ensured its popularity in an era fascinated by melancholia. Not that all of Dowland's songs were lugubrious: "Say, love, if ever thou didst find" is a lively, radiant encomium to a peerless lady--perhaps, some have suggested, Queen Elizabeth her?self (the "only queen of love and beauty"). "Lady, if you so spite me," with its risque text ("If you seek to spill me Come kiss me, sweet, and kill me"); has a playful side, but even here the game of love is tinged with melancholy, and Dowland's deepest songs are almost all of a sombre hue. "I saw my lady weep" shows his extraordinary abil?ity to employ dissonance and unexpected harmonic and melodic turns to wring pathos from a text. A similar approach char?acterizes "In darkness let me dwell," from A Musical Banquet, but in this later song we also hear--especially in the impassioned
outburst "Oh, let me living die"--the influ?ence of a dramatic new style from Italy.
In fact, two of the songs from A Musical Banquet--"Amarilli mia bella" and "Dovro dunque morire"--come from a landmark collection published in Italy in 1602: Giulio Caccini's Le nuove musiche (The New Music), which contains twenty-two works in "monodic" style. Monodies featured a solo voice set against an improvised accompani?ment. Caccini provided numbers (or "fig?ures") over the bass line of the accompani?ment as guidance to the performer, who could freely improvise around the founda?tion of these ideas. "Amarilli mia bella" is particularly known for the unusual figures Caccini wrote in--dissonant elevenths resolving to tenths and sevenths resolving to sixths--which lend a pungency to the har?monies and expression. "Se di far mi morire," by the monodist Domenico Maria Megli, is also included in tonight's program. Though he is far less known than Caccini, it is possible that Megli's early ventures into the new monodic style, published in 1602, may actually predate Caccini's Le nuove musiche. The anonymous "O bella piii," the final piece in A Musical Banquet, brings the collection to a close with a flourish as the singer pours out a long written-out melisma on the word core (heart).
Two songs from the Spanish Renaissance are also included in A Musical Banquet "Passa va amor," a setting of verses from Jorge de Montemayor's famous romance Diana (c. 1559), and "Vestros." Both settings are strophic and dance-like, with delightful shifts of accent.
Among the lute solos in tonight's pro?gram are three works by Michelagnolo Galilei, son of the famous music theorist Vincenzo Galilei and brother of the even more famous astronomer Galileo Galilei. His one book of solo lute music, published in Munich in 1620, included ten toccatas and a large number of popular dances. The
Toccata was a quasi-improvisational form, often alternating rhapsodic passages with sections of imitative counterpoint. The two Voltas on this program represent a popular dance in triple rhythm in which the man swept his partner off her feet--an intimate move that might have been the cause of its banishment from one European court.
While the English, Spanish, and Italian songs of tonight's program belong to the same chronological period, they are in some ways not entirely contemporary. The English and Spanish songs represent the end of an illustrious Renaissance lineage, while the Italian songs subtly hint at the begin?nings of the baroque. It is not an obvious difference, but it can be gently discerned in the treatment of the vocal line, the har?monies, and the accompaniment, as well as the more dramatic presentation. Caccini and his contemporaries were embarked on a fresh exploration of music's expressivity, one that resulted in the formation of the new genre of opera. It is a fascinating juxtaposi?tion, showing us how the moveable feast that is musical style passed from one coun?try to another.

lready regarded as one of the most outstanding countertenor of his generation for his remarkable discography and performances in concert, Andreas Scholl's operat?ic debut as Bertarido (Rodelinda) for the Glyndebourne Festival Opera was greeted with unprecedented critical acclaim.
Andreas Scholl has released a series of extraordinary solo recordings including Vivaldi's Motets with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra and Heroes--a disc of arias by Handel, Mozart, Hasse and Gluck. His discography also includes the
title role in Solomon with the Gabrieli Consort under Paul McCreesh, Pergolesi's Stabat Mafcrwith Les Talens Lyriques and Barbara Bonney under Christoph Rousset, Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Monteverdi's Orfeo and the 1610 Vespers, the Gramophone award-winning recordings of Vivaldi's Stabat Mater, Antonio Caldara's Maddalena ai piedi di Cristo all under Rene Jacobs and most recently Robert Dowland's A Musical Banquet for Decca.
In concert, Andreas Scholl works regular?ly with the world's leading conductors with appearances including the Bach Cantatas under John Nelson with The Cleveland Orchestra, b minor Mass, Christmas Oratorio and St. Matthew Passion with Collegium Vocale under Philippe Herreweghe, Handel arias with the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra under Christopher Hogwood and with the
Akademie fiir Alte Musik Berlin, and Bach's St. John Passion with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra under Ton Koopman. At the BBC Promenade Concerts he has sung Julius Caesar and Bach's Magnificat with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Rene Jacobs, the title role in Solomon with the Gabrieli Consort under Paul McCreesh and Pergolesi's Stabat Mater with the Frieburg Baroque Orchestra. This year, Mr. Scholl sang Vivaldi and Handel arias with the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra. A committed and extraordinary recital artist, Andreas Scholl has appeared at Wigmore Hall, Cologne Philharmonic Concertgebouw, Tonhalle Zurich, and at the Sydney, Brighton, Lufthansa, Schwetzinger and Schleswig-Holstein Festivals.
Recent engagements have included con?certs with the Malaysian Philharmonic in Kuala Lumpur, his debut with the Bach Collegium Japan and Handel's Saul at La Monniae and Solomon with the Gabrieli Consort. Mr. Scholl has also performed his new recital program, Robert Dowland's A Musical Banquet, all over the world. This season Andreas Scholl will make his debut appearances in the title role in Giulio Cesare with the Royal Danish Opera, will make his New York recital debut at Carnegie Hall, tour the US with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and tour Europe with Barbara Bonney and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra. An exclusive Decca recording artist, Andreas Scholl's future releases will include Wayfaring Stranger, a collection of English and American folksongs specially arranged for him and the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra.
Born in Germany, Andreas Scholl's early musical training was with the Kiedricher Chorbuben. Between 1987 and 1993 he studied with Richard Levitt and Rene Jacobs at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis where he was awarded a Diploma of Ancient Music. In 1992 he was awarded the Conseil de
VEurope and the Foundation Claude Nicolas Ledoux. Additionally, he is a graduate of the Foundation Ernst Gohner and Association Migros. Andreas Scholl is a winner of the 1999 ECHO Awards and the Prix de I'Union de la Presse.

oshua Redman began his musical career in 1991. Having just graduated from Harvard with plans to pursue a law degree, he instead went on tour and recorded with his father, the legendary saxophonist Dewey Redman, as well as with other noted musicians, including Charlie Haden, Jack Dejohnette, Elvin Jones and Paul Motian. The younger Redman created a sensation by taking "First Prize" in the annual Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz saxophone competition that fall, and landed a record deal with Warner Brothers soon after.
Since winning the Thelonius Monk saxo?phone competition in 1991, Grammy-nomi?nated Redman has been a perennial poll winner in Down Beat and Jazziz magazines and was voted "Jazz Artist of the Year" for two consecutive years in Rolling Stone maga?zine's Critics Poll. Mr. Redman appeared in Robert Altman's full-length feature film Kansas City and on the music soundtrack of 42nd Street Vanya, directed by Louis Malle. In committing himself to the pursuit of jazz, Joshua Redman has become one of the most celebrated and popular jazz artists today. Hailed as the "crown prince of the tenor saxophone" by the Associated Press, Mr. Redman has come to enjoy a meteoric rise in commercial and critical success. His 1993 self-titled debut recording was soon followed by Wish, featuring Pat Metheny on guitars and the late Billy Higgins on drums. Following these hit albums were Moodswing (1994), Spirit of the Moment: Live at the Village Vanguard (1995), Freedom in the Groove (1996), Timeless Tales (For Changing Times) (1998), Beyond (2000), and Passage ofTime (2001).
As well as performing with his current quartet, Mr. Redman has performed and recorded with many great artists including Elvin Jones, Charlie Haden, Jack Dejohnette, Milt Jackson, Pat Metheny, the Mingus Dynasty and Christian McBride. In
1994 he toured with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra, and in 1992 was voted "Best New Artist" in the Jazz Times Readers' Poll.
Tonight's performance marks Joshua Redman and the Joshua Redman Quartet's UMS debuts.
rad Mehldau, like many of his contemporaries, began his career with heavy classical training, long before he was exposed to jazz. He started experimenting with the piano when he was just four and began tak?ing lessons when he was six, continuing until he was fourteen. As a youngster he lis?tened more to rock than jazz. Brad moved to New York City in 1988 where he worked with a variety of musicians over the next several years and made several recordings as a sideman. During that period he began to develop his own style which he attributes to the influence of his musical peers, specifical?ly bandleaders Peter Bernstein, Jessie Davis and David Sanchez as well as other musi?cians he worked with often--Mark Turner, Kurt Rosenwinkel, Perico Sambeat, Leon Parker, Avishai Cohen and Chris Potter.
In addition he met and played with his future trio mates, Larry Grenadier and Jorge Rossy in several projects. Brad's first major international exposure came as a member of the Joshua Redman Quartet, with which he recorded Moodswing and toured the US and Europe for a year-and-a-half.
In 1995 Brad released his debut album as a leader for Warner Bros. Records, appropri?ately titled, Introducing Brad Mehldau. Of that recording the Chicago Tribune observed that it was "...a recording that achieves its most vivid moments when Mehldau is play?ing original compositions. The elliptical lines, volatile rhythmic figures and unexpected bursts of color and dissonance...prove that Mehldau writes as cleverly as he plays. The originality of these compositions is startling to behold." Brad's second Warner album, The Art Of The Trio, Volume One, was released in February 1997 to almost instant critical acclaim.
With the release of his third album, Live At The Village Vanguard: The Art of the Trio, Volume Two, in 1998, Brad Mehldau was on his way to international acclaim and success. He spent most of the year touring through?out the US and Europe with his trio, still
finding time to record with Willie Nelson and briefly touring once again with Joshua Redman. Mr. Mehldau's latest recording, Places, is comprised of original composi?tions, performed either solo or with his reg?ular trio (Larry Grenadier and Jorge Rossy). The pieces are named after the cities in which they were written.
Mr. Mehldau has also had extensive experience composing and playing for film scores including Stanley Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut, Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil and Space Cowboys. In addition, Mr. Mehldau improvised a solo piano score for the French film Un Ange en Danger, and is the subject of a recently released French documentary entitled Jazz Collection: Brad Mehldau.
Tonight's performance marks Brad Mehldau and the Brad Mehldau Trio's UMS debuts.

My heavy sprite
Anthony Holborne
My Heavy sprite, oppress'd with sorrow's
Of wearied limbs the burden sore sustains, With silent groans and heart's tears still
Yet I breathe still and live in life's despite. Have I lost thee All fortunes I accurse Bids thee farewell, with thee all joys farewell, And for thy sake this world becomes my
My sweetest Lesbia
Thomas Campion
My sweetest Lesbia, let us live and love. And, though the sager sort our deeds
reprove, Let us not weigh them. Heav'n's great lamps
do dive
Into their west, and straight again revive. But soon as once set is our little light, Then must we sleep one ever-during night.
If all would lead their lives in love like me, Then bloody swords and armour should
not be. No drum nor trumpet peaceful sleeps
should move,
Unless alarm came from the camp of Love. But fools do live, and waste their little light, And seek with pain their ever-during night.
When timely death my life and fortune ends, Let not my hearse be vex'd with mourning
But let all lovers, rich in triumph, come And with sweet pastimes grace my happy
And Lesbia, close up thou my little light, And crown with love my ever-during night.
Flow, my tears
John Dowland
Flow, my tears, fall from your springs! Exiled for ever let me mourne; Where nights black bird her sad infamy sings, There let me live forlorn.
Down, vain lights, shine you no more! No nights are dark enough for those That in despair their lost fortunes deplore; Light doth but shame disclose.
Never may my woes be relieved,
Since pity is fled;
And tears and sighs and groans my weary days
Of all joys have deprived.
From the highest spire of contentment My fortune is thrown; And fear and grief and pain for my deserts Are my hopes, since hope is gone.
Hark, you shadows that in darkness dwell, Learn to contemn light, Happy, happy they that in hell Feel not the world's despite.
I saw my lady weep
I saw my lady weep,
And Sorrow proud to be advanced so
In those fair eyes were all perfections keep
Her face was full of woe,
But such a woe, believe me, as wins more
hearts Than Mirth can do with her enticing parts.
O fairer than aught else
The world can show, leave off in time to
Enough, enough your joyful looks excel. Tears kill the heat, believe; O strive not to be excellent in woe, Which only breeds your beauty's overthrow.
I care not for these ladies
I care not for these ladies that must be
woo'd and pray'd; Give me kind Amaryllis, the wanton
country maid. Nature Art disdaineth; her beauty is
her own. Her when we court and kiss, she cries;
forsooth, let go! But when we come where comfort is,
she never will say No.
If I love Amaryllis, she gives me fruit and
flow'rs; But if we love these ladies, we must give
golden show'rs. Give them gold that sell love; give me the
nut-brown lass, Who when we court and kiss, she cries:
Forsooth, let go! But when we come where comfort is, she
never will say No.
These ladies must have pillows and beds
by strangers wrought. Give me a bow'r of willows, of moss and
leaves unbought, And fresh Amaryllis with milk and
honey fed, Who when we court and kiss, she cries:
forsooth, let go! But when we come where comfort is,
she never will say No.
Say, love, if ever thou didst find
Say, love, if ever thou didst find
A woman with a constant mind
"None but one."
And what should that rare mirror be
Some goddess or some queen is she
"She, she, she, and only she,
She only queen of love and beauty."
But could thy fiery poisoned dart
At no time touch her spotless heart,
Nor come near
"She is not subject to Love's bow;
Her eye commands, her hearth sairth no,
No, no, no, and only no;
On no another still doth follow."
To her then yield thy shafts and bow,
Than can command affections so.
"Love is free;
So are her thoughts that vanquish thee.
There is no queen of love but she,
She, she, she, and only she,
She only queen of love and beauty."
The Right Honourable the
Lord Viscount Lisle, His Galliard
Dowland Schroder, Lute
Lady, if you so spite me
Lady, if you so spite me
Wherefore do you so oft kiss and delight me,
Sure that my heart, oppress'd and overcloyed,
May break thus overjoyed
If you seek to spill me,
Come kiss me, sweet, and kill me.
So shall your heart be eased,
And I shall rest content and die well pleased.
In darkness let me dwell
In darkness let me dwell The ground shall Sorrow be; The roof Despair to bar All cheerful light from me, The walls of marble black That moisten'd still shall weep; My music hellish jarring sounds To banish friendly sleep. Thus wedded to my woes And bedded to my tomb, O let me living die, Till death do come.
Anonymous Passa va amor
Passavo Amor su arco desarmado, Los ojos baxos, blando y muy modesto; Dexava m'ya atras muy descuidado.
Quam poco espacio pude gozar esto. Fortuna de embidiosa dixo luego: "Teneos, Amor; porque vays tarn presto"
Bolvio de presto a mi el nirio ciego, Muy enojado en verse reprehendido, Que no ha reprehension do sta su fuego.
Ay prados, bosques, selvas, que criastes Tan libre corazon como era el moi, Porque tan grade mal no te estorbastes
Vuestros ojos tienen d'Amor no se que, Que me yelan, me roban, me hieren, me
matan a ft. Porque me mirays Con tanta aflicci6n, Y a mi corazon, Me aprisionays Que si vos me mirays yo os acusare.
Toccata Volta Volta
Michelangelo Galilei Schroder, Lute
Love walked by unarmed,
Eyes downcast, mild and full of modesty;
He left me far behind, quite forgotten.
How little time I had to enjoy this. Fortune, envious, then said: "Stay, Love; why so fast"
The unseeing child came quickly back to me,
In fury at being thus reproved,
For where his fire is lit there is no reproval.
Ah, meadows, woods and forests, who nurtured
Such a free heart as mine,
Why did you not oppose this terrible wrong
Your eyes hold what I know not of Love For in truth they freeze me, rob me,
wound me, kill me. Why do you look at me With such affliction, And imprison My heart If you look at me I shall denounce you.
Se di far mi morire
Domenico Maria Megli
Se di far mi morire
Con crudelta pensate
Certo che v'inganate.
Che de la crudelta nascono 1'ire,
E da Tire lo sdegno,
Che schaccia Amor
Dal suo superbo regno.
Dovro dunque morire
Giulio Caccini
Dovro dungue morire
Pra che di nuovo io miri
Voi bramata cagion de miei martiri.
Moi parduto tesoro,
Non potro dirvi
Pria ch'io mora: lo moro
Lo moro
O', O' miseria inaudita;
Non poter dir a voi:
Moro mia vita.
Amarilli mia bella Caccini
Amarilli mia bella, non credi 6,
Del mio cor dolce desio,
D'esser tu 1'amor moi
Credilo pur, e se timor t'assale,
Prendi questo mio strale;
Aprimi il petto, e vedrai scritto in cuore:
Amarilli e'l moi amore.
0 bella piu
O bella piu che le stele Diana, Chi parinansi de la mia patrona, Mi regina, dolce mi amore; Pieta, cuor mio, pieta, on piu dolore. Bene mio caro, cuore mio bella, Tu sei la mala morte mia, La freccia chi mi pass'il cuore.
If you think to cause my death
Through your cruelty
You are surely mistaken.
For from cruelty springs anger,
And from anger disdain,
Which unseats Love
From his proud throne.
Must I then die
Before I can see you again
Longed-for-cause of my suffering.
My lost treasure,
Can I not tell you
Before I die: "I am dying"
I am dying
Oh, oh, unheard-of wretchedness;
To be unable to tell you:
"I am dying, my life."
Amaryllis, my lovely one,
Do you not believe, O my heart's sweet desire,
That you are my love
Believe it thus, and if fear assails you,
Doubt not its truth;
Open my breast and see written on my heart:
"Amaryllis is my beloved."
Oh fairer than the stars of Diana,
Which shine before my mistress,
My queen, my sweet love;
Mercy, my heart, cause no more sorrow.
My dear beloved, my fair heart,
You are the fatal cause of my death,
The arrow that pierces my heart.
