The University of Michigan (UM) would like to join the University Musical Society (UMS) in welcoming you to the 2002 2003 season. Additionally, we would like to thank you for your support of the performing arts. We are proud of the wonderful partner?ship we have developed with UMS and of our
role as co-sponsor and co-presenter of several events on this season's calendar. These events reflect the artistic beauty and passion that are integral to the human experience. They are also wonderful opportunities
for University of Michigan students and fac?ulty to learn about the creative process and sources of inspiration that motivate artists and scholars.
The current season marks the second resi?dency by the Royal Shakespeare Company of Stratford, England, which performs three plays in March: The Merry Wives of Windsor, Coriolanus, and Salman Rushdie's Midnight's Children. UM and UMS co-presentations are not limited to theater, but also include per?formances by the Vienna Philharmonic, the Bolshoi Ballet, and a special event entitled "Evening at the Apollo," in which the best performing groups from Detroit and Ann Arbor are given a chance to compete for a slot at Harlem's Apollo Theater Amateur Night, where Ella Fitzgerald, Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, and other legends of 20th-
century American music got their big breaks. As befits the educational missions of both the University and UMS, we should also recognize the co-sponsorship of educational program?ming involving, among others, the Abbey Theatre of Ireland, Grupo Corpo, Sekou Sundiata and creative co-sponsorship of presentations by the Hubbard Street Dance Company and the well-known female a cap-pella group Sweet Honey in the Rock.
Most significantly, I would like to thank the faculty and staff of UM and UMS for their hard work and dedication to making this partnership a success. UMS staff, in particular, work with the University's faculty and students to create learning opportunities for our campus, and in the case of the larger residencies, for the greater community.
The University of Michigan is pleased to support the University Musical Society during its 0203 season. We share the goal of making our co-presentations the type of academic and cultural events that benefit the broadest possible constituency.
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
Thank you for joining us for this UMS performance. We appreciate your support of the performing arts and of UMS, and we hope we'll see you at more of our programs this season. Check the complete listing of UMS's 20022003 events beginning on page 29 and on our website at
We welcome UM President Mary Sue Coleman to the southeast Michigan com?munity and to membership on the UMS Board of Directors. The university from which President Coleman came to Michigan
has a distinguished record in its support of creative artists. During the Millennium season alone, while Dr. Coleman was president, the University of Iowa's Hancher Auditorium premiered over 20 new works in music, dance, and theater, all of them commissioned by Hancher. This unprecedented level of support of creative artists by a university presenting organization captured the attention of the performing arts field worldwide and reinforced the idea that research in the performing arts is as important and as valid to a great university as is research in other fields. We thank Dr. Coleman and her predecessors Lee C. Bollinger and B. Joseph White for the extra?ordinary level of UM support for the second residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company March 1-16 and of eight other projects this season that offer special value to the University's mission of teaching, research, and service.
This season offers some special challenges for UMS with the closing of Hill Auditorium for restoration and renovation. With your understanding and support, we know we will
overcome these difficulties and have a success?ful season. As we await our reopening concert scheduled for January 2004, UMS is creating special opportunities for our patrons to see and hear world-renowned artists in outstand?ing venues in Detroit, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor. You won't want to miss the first southeast Michigan presentations of the Bolshoi Ballet November 20-24 or the February 27 return of the Vienna Philharmonic for the first time in the region since 1988. For many of our Detroit performances, UMS is offering transportation by luxury coach to our Ann Arbor patrons. And we urge you to bring the whole family to UMS's first event in Crisler Arena when the Boston Pops performs its Holiday Concert on December 8.
Yes, things will be different this season. The UMS staff is determined to do everything we can to make this season run as smoothly as possible for you and our other patrons. Please let us know if you have any questions or problems. Call our ticket office at 734.764.2538, now led by Ticket Services Manager Nicole Paoletti, successor to Michael Gowing, who retired August 30. You should also feel free to get in touch with me about anything related to UMS. If you don't see me in the lobby at our performances, you can send me an email message at or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
It is a pleasure to welcome you to this performance of the UMS 0203 season. With world-renowned performers, new community partnerships, and ever-expanding educational activities, our 124th season continues our commitment to artistic and educational excellence and our dedication to our audiences and extended com?munity. 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 performance. To bridge the gap, we must rely on the generosity of our many individual, corporate, govern?mental and foundation donors. In supporting UMS, they have pub?licly recognized the importance of the arts in our community and helped create new educational opportunities for students and adults of all ages and backgrounds.
So, as you read through the program book and take pleasure in this performance, 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.
Through an uncompromising 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 vig?orous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 123 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 90 perform?ances and more than 150 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in 11 diverse venues in Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti, and Detroit.
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, special project support from UM, and endowment income.
Throughout its 123-year history, the UMS 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. Nine years ago, the Choral Union further enriched that tradition when it began appearing regularly with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO). Among other works, the chorus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadowbrook for sub?scription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, John Adams's Harmonium, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd.
In 1995, the Choral Union began accept?ing invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire.
The Choral Union will open its upcom?ing season with performances of Mahler's Symphony No. 3 with the DSO, followed by a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9 with the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra. In December the chorus will present its 124th series of annual performances of Messiah, using the rarely-heard Mozart revision of Handel's great work. The Choral Union's sea?son will conclude in March with a pair of magnificent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accompanied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufle's mystical Requiem, accompanied by organist Janice Beck.
The Choral Union's 0102 season includ?ed performances of Messiah, Ives's Symphony No. 4 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra and Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem with Thomas Sheets conducting the Ann Arbor Symphony Orchestra, all in Hill Auditorium. To conclude its 123rd season, the Choral Union joined the DSO and Neeme Jarvi in three critically acclaimed performances of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis.
During the 20002001 season, the UMS Choral Union appeared in two series with the DSO. The season culminated in a perform?ance of Berlioz's Requiem with the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, along with tenor Stanford Olsen and members of the UM School of Music Symphony Band in Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union is a talent pool capa?ble of performing choral music of every genre. In addition to choral masterworks, the Choral Union has performed Gershwin's Porgy and Bess with the Birmingham-Bloomfield Symphony Orchestra, and other musical theatre favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadowbrook. The 72-voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solennelle, and the Mozart Requiem. 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; a performance of Bach's Magnificat, and a recent joint performance with the Tallis Scholars.
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Composed of singers from Michigan, Ohio and Canada, members of the Choral Union share one common passion--a love of the choral art. For more information about membership in the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997.
With the 18-month closing of Hill Auditorium for renovations, the 0203 UMS season will include performances by the world's celebrated music, theater and dance artists in 11 venues in three cities: Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit.
Ann Arbor Venues Hill Auditorium
The 18-month, $38.6-million dollar reno?vation to Hill Auditorium began on May 13, 2002 under the direction of Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. Hill was first opened to Michigan audiences in 1913 and this current renovation project will update all of its infrastructure systems and restore much of the interior decor to its original splendor.
Exterior renovations will rebuild brick paving and stone retaining walls, restore the south entrance plaza, rework the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improve the landscaping which surrounds the building.
Interior renovations will create additional restrooms, improve audience circulation by providing elevators, replace main-floor seating to increase patron comfort, introduce barrier-free seating and stage access, replace audio?visual systems, and completely replace all mechanical and electrical infrastructure sys?tems for heating, ventilation, and air condi?tioning.
Upon reopening in January 2004, Hill Auditorium will decrease in seating capacity from 4,169 to 3,710.
Crisler Arena
Crisler Arena, home to the Michigan Wolverine basketball teams, stands as a tribute to the great Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler, Michigan's third all-time winning football coach. Crisler served 10 years as Michigan's football coach (1938-1947) and 27 years as athletic director (1941-1968) of the University. The arena was designed by Dan Dworksky under the architectural firm of K.C. Black & C.L. Dworsky and opened in 1968. The event facility has a capacity of 13,609.
While serving as a site of Big Ten Conference championship events, Crisler has also played host to popular acts such as Pearl Jam, Bill Cosby, the Grateful Dead, and even Elvis Presley during his final concert tour.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS regularly 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. The superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has been the home of the UMS Song Recital series for the past eight years.
Michigan Theater
The 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.
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.
Power Center for the Performing Arts
The 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.
No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two hand-woven tap?estries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including Univer?sity Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the cur?rent home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which
houses the 1,129-seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4-million endowment to further the development of graduate studies.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19,1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started in 1950 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splen?did three manual "mechanical action" organ with 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Ypsilanti Venues
EMU Convocation Center
An exciting new era in EMU athletics was set in motion in the fall of 1998 with the opening of the $29.6-million Convocation Center. The Barton-Malow Company along with the architectural firm Rossetti Associates of BirminghamThe Argos Group began con?struction on the campus facility in 1996. The Convocation Center opened its doors on December 9, 1998 with a maximum seating capacity of 9,510 for center-stage entertain?ment events.
Pease Auditorium
Built in 1914, Pease Auditorium was reno?vated in 1995. Earlier this year, the resto?ration of the AeolianSkinner pipe organ was completed and the interior of the auditorium was refurbished. Pease Auditorium can seat up to a total of 1,541 concertgoers.
Detroit Venues
Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000-square-foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the 2,735-seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Orchestra Hall
Orchestra Hall was dedicated in 1919 as the new home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In 1939, after the depression, the orchestra moved to the Masonic Temple Theatre and the facility was renamed the Paradise Theatre. The Paradise became one of the nation's most famous stages for African-American Jazz musicians (1941-1951).
In the late 1950s, the building was aban?doned and fell into disrepair. In 1964, it was headed for the wrecking ball, but local citizens rallied to save the great concert hall. DSO musicians and volunteers founded Save Orchestra Hall, Inc., to marshal citizen sup?port for the retention and restoration of the building to its former architectural grandeur.
In September 1989 the DSO returned to Orchestra Hall, now its permanent home, capping a multi-million-dollar restoration effort.
In 1996, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra launched Orchestra Place, an $80-million development project on eight acres of land surrounding Orchestra Hall.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen 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 returned to our familiar home at Burton Memorial Tower in August 2001, following a year of significant renovations to the University landmark.
This upcoming season marks the second year of the merger of the UMS Ticket Office and the University Productions Ticket Office. Due to this new partnership, the UMS walk-up ticket window is now conveniently located at the Michigan League Ticket Office, on the north end of the Michigan League building at 911 North University Avenue. The UMS Ticket Office phone number and mailing address remains the same.

Created for Nederlands Dans Theater in 1988. Staged by Roslyn Anderson. Five Pieces for String Quartet, Op. 5 by Anton Webern from the recording Complete Music for String Quartet performed by Quartetto Italiano.
The basic idea for this choreography is inspired by a small sculpture of Alberto Giacometti: a simple, slightly deformed board-game with little craters and ditches and two pieces of wood resembling human figures. One might feel like having been invited to a game, the rules of which are being kept secret, or have never been determined. But as you begin to play this mysterious game, you start to learn its laws only sometimes too late. Anton Webern's music has a fascinating feeling of essentiality and inevitability. Its sound and structure create captivating transparency and dynamic tension.
These qualities assembled by Webern's uncompromising genius become a source of energy which has a direct influence on anything that might be simultaneously happening on stage. The seriousness of much of what we set out to undertake, often results in no more than a grotesque gri?mace, but it should be accepted as such, and become a valid part of our being. So this choreographic play of bodies, mind, sound and light in time and space is merely a metaphor of a game with extremely severe rules, which someone wrote in a long forgotten language.

Hubbard Street Dance Chicago (HSDC) was founded in 1977 by veteran dancer and choreog?rapher Lou Conte. Today, under the dynamic leadership of Artistic Director Jim Vincent, 20 culturally diverse dancers represent Hubbard Street Dance Chicago throughout the world, per?forming annually for more than 130,000 people.
During its 24-year history, HSDC has emerged as one of the most innovative forces in contemporary dance. Recognized worldwide for its exuberant, athletic and eclectic repertory, Hubbard Street incorpo?rates diverse influences from ballet to American musical theater to cutting-edge choreography. The company and its distinc?tive repertoire have served as a living archive for significant choreographic works by world-class choreographers Marguerite Donlon, Nacho Duato, Daniel Ezralow, Jiri Kylian, Trey Mclntyre, Ohad Naharin, Kevin O'Day, Margo Sappington, Lynne Taylor-Corbett and Twyla Tharp. In addition, the company regularly collaborates with emerg?ing choreographers on new dance works.
HSDC performs in downtown Chicago and the metropolitan area and also tours extensively throughout the year. The com?pany has appeared in 42 states and 15 coun?tries at celebrated dance venues including the American Dance Festival, DanceAspen, the Holland Dance Festival, Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, The Joyce Theater, the Kennedy Center, the Ravinia Festival and the Spoleto Festival of Two Worlds (Italy). This summer HSDC made its United Kingdom debut at Sadler's Wells Theatre and The Brighton Festival in addition to its first appearance at the Spoleto Festival USA in Charleston, South Carolina.
From its inception, HSDC has captured public attention and garnered local, nation?al and international critical acclaim. With four public television specials, including
two that aired nationally and in Canada, HSDC has enlightened and entertained audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
In March 1998, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago merged with the Lou Conte Dance Studio (LCDS) and relocated to a perma?nent facility in Chicago's West Loop Gate neighborhood. HSDC and the LCDS now serve as one institution dedicated to perfor?mance, dance training and community edu?cation. One of the most comprehensive dance centers in the US, this facility houses five dance studios equipped with state-of-the-art floors and audio systems, including two stage-sized spaces; production shops for building and maintaining sets and cos?tumes; storage space for the company's advanced sound and lighting systems; a sound mixing studio; and administrative offices and meeting rooms.
Hubbard Street 2 (HS2), under the leader?ship of Artistic Director Julie Nakagawa Bottcher, is a company of six dancers between the ages of 17 and 25 who perform a repertoire of works by some of the nation's most promising young choreogra?phers. HS2 reaches more than 25,000 people annually through performances in schools, community centers and theatres. Since its inception in 1997, the company has become a respected training ground for young, pro?fessional dancers and choreographers; a major component of HSDC's education program; a resource for new dancers for HSDC's main company; and a performing company in its own right.
HSDC's Education Department, through multi-layered programs, exposes students to dance, works with teachers to integrate dance and movement into the curriculum and partners with other Chicago arts organiza?tions on inter-disciplinary collaborations.
The Lou Conte Dance Studio offers more than 60 classes per week to adults and teens in ballet, jazz, modern, African, tap, hip-hopfunk and dance fitness. Named "Best Dance Class for Adults" by Chicago maga?zine, the Lou Conte Dance Studio offers various levels of classes for dancers from beginners to professionals, taught by some of Chicago's finest dance and music artists.
August 1, 2000 marked a major turning point in the life of HSDC, as Founder and Artistic Director Lou Conte retired and Jim Vincent, respected dancer, teacher, ballet master and choreographer, became the new artistic director. Vincent's relationships with Kylian, Duato, Naharin and other distin?guished choreographers will continue to build on HSDC's illustrious history as a contemporary repertory company.
In 1977, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago was launched to fill a community need. Today it stands as one of the most renowned dance institutions in America, dedicated to performance, dance training and community education, while serving as an emblem of Chicago's international cul?tural profile.
This weekend's performances mark Hubbard Street Dance Chicago's fifth, sixth and seventh appearances under UMS auspices. The com?pany made their UMS debut in March 1988.
Jim Vincent (Artistic Director) joined HSDC in August 2000 following an exten?sive career as a dancer, teacher, ballet master and choreographer. Mr. Vincent's dance training began at the age of five and contin?ued through his childhood with Mercer, Burlington and Princeton Ballets in New Jersey. He studied on scholarship at the Washington School of Ballet in Washington, DC, Harkness House of Ballet in New York City and North Carolina School of the Arts at the University of North Carolina. Mr.
Vincent's distinguished career as a profes?sional dancer includes a 12-year tenure with Jiri Kylian's Nederlands Dans Theater, a guest appearance with Lar Lubovitch and two years with Nacho Duato's Compania Nacional de Danza in Spain.
Mr. Vincent has served as ballet master for Nederlands Dans Theater II, Compania Nacional de Danza and Opera National de Lyon, where he rehearsed repertory by renowned choreographers Kylian, Duato, Forsythe, Ek, George Balanchine, Angelin Prejlocaj and Bill T. Jones. He has restaged choreographies for Duato, including Jardi Tancat, Synaphai and Na Floresta, and for Kylian, including Return to the Strange Land and Stamping Ground. Mr. Vincent has choreographed a number of works for Nederlands Dans Theater I and II, Quebec's Bande a Part and Switzerland's Stadt Theater Bern. At Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, he has recently choreographed counterpart, his first work for the company as artistic director. His teaching experience includes Holland's Royal Conservatory of the Hague, Australia's Victorian College of Art, Compania Nacional de Danza and Opera National de Lyon. He served as assis?tant artistic director of Compania Nacional de Danza from 1990-94.

Lou Conte (HSDC FounderDirector, Lou Conte Dance Studio), after a performing career including Broadway musicals, estab?lished the Lou Conte Dance Studio in Chicago in 1974. In 1977, he founded what is now Hubbard Street Dance Chicago with four dancers performing at senior citizens homes in Chicago. Originally the company's sole choreographer, he developed relation?ships with emerging and world-renowned choreographers as the company began to grow, adding bodies of work by a variety of artists. These relationships transformed HSDC into the internationally acclaimed repertoire company it is today. In the 1980s, Mr. Conte commissioned several works by Lynne Taylor-Corbett, Margo Sappington and Daniel Ezralow. He continued to build HSDC's repertoire by forging a key partner?ship with Twyla Tharp in the 1990s, acquir-
ing seven of her works including an original work for the company. Mr. Conte further expanded the company's repertoire to include European choreographers Jiri Kylian and Nacho Duato and Israeli choreographer Ohad Naharin. Throughout his 23 years as the company's artistic director, Mr. Conte received numerous awards, including the Chicago Dance Coalition's inaugural Ruth Page Artistic Achievement Award in 1986, the Sidney R. Yates Arts Advocacy Award in 1995 and the "Chicagoan of the Year" award from Chicago magazine in 1999.

The lute is an instrument laden with symbolic significance that marks like an acoustic icon the conver?gence of Asia, Europe, and Africa as they come together to form the irregular circumference of the Mediterra?nean. An oud player like Anouar Brahem, who has explored the most secret depths of sound and pondered long on the legacy of the artistic music of the Arab world, and of the Islamic world in general, is thus a wit?ness to cultural transformations as complex as they are profound.
The way Mr. Brahem's music resists classification is a measure of the quality of his artistic career. If many young lutenists of today think of the oud as a particularly expressive instrument then it is thanks to the example set by this Tunisian musician, as well as to that set by the Iraqi brothers Jamil and Mounir Bashir. Mr. Brahem's taste for the cosmopolitan forms of Arab music, influenced by the Turkish school, at once reveals his concept of the oud a concept intimately linked with the essence of the tra?ditional language, that transnational frontier represented by the modal constellations known to Arab musicians as maqamat -and the organological kinship between the vari?ous members of the great Mediterranean lute family. Hence the allusions to the guitar, the saz, and the baglama, seen as elements of a composite identity that highlights the affinities between these instruments.
Fascinated by the cinema, the theater, and dance, Mr. Brahem seeks out musical signs in all other forms of artistic expression in order to decant them into his pure distil?late of sound. Elegance, transparency, sim?plicity, and above all an unmistakable style and touch. His mastery of the instrument springs from a school as illustrious as it is little known, that of his teacher AH Sriti, a lover of "eastern" Arab music, in other words, of the Syrian and Egyptian schools. From the subtle combination of the differ-
ent modal sensibilities of the Mahreq and the Maghreb, and from the confluence of different improvisational styles, the Tunisian artist has created a fascinating and highly personal idea of Arab music, far removed from stereotypes, and one that makes no concessions to the fad for the oriental "revival" now afflicting a part of the musical output of this area.
Anouar Brahem's music can be listened to without any knowledge of his origins and culture. The mellow and persuasive sweet?ness of his themes call up an acoustic imagery that knows no frontiers while the apparent tranquility of his musical dis?course conceals an explosive charge of silences, behind which there lurks a positive barrage of interrogatives.
If one were to seek a nexus or a direct comparison between the places evoked by the titles, from Asia Minor to the Caucasus, from Turkmenistan to Tanzania, from the Balkans to Azerbaijan, one would risk mis?leading listeners, accustomed to looking for correspondences between an artist's works and his biography. The most exciting thing about Anouar Brahem is precisely his capac?ity to project a contemporary dimension into the world of lute playing. While his music embraces the signs of the times it also seems to transcend them, but having said this it cannot be denied that his music has, perhaps unconsciously, absorbed much of the anguish caused by the events that cov?ered the international headlines in recent news.
Over and above all these considerations there stands the instrument. The oud is the most evocative symbol in Arab music. It is its commonplace, essence, synthesis, and development. The theory of modes was based on and explained by the oud, from whose strings legends and cosmogonies have sprung. Its sounds have been compared to aspects of the human temperament itself. The oud player is the creator of a concept of
music made up of an extraordinary balance between technique, form, and inspiration.
Anouar Brahem's instrumental explo?rations never stray from the model of the takht, that little ensemble of musicians capable of improvising to the point of ine?briating themselves and the public alike. Barbaras Erkose's clarinet is not merely a clarinet, it is an instrument-region that runs straight across the Balkan world to express a wordless song of rare intensity. Anouar's first meeting with Mr. Erkose, a Turkish clarinetist of gypsy origins, took place in 1985. The timbre of the clarinet is the ideal accompaniment for the lute in its modal forays. The precise and sober touch of the percussionist Lassad Hosni, who frequently cooperates with Mr. Brahem on his various projects, represents the perfect balance between accompaniment and musical ideas.
His need to explore different territory has led him to cross the paths taken by other musicians, interpreters of musical cul?tures from various epochs and regions, from Renaissance music to flamenco, from jazz to classical Indian music. At a time when the dialogue between different schools of music was still innocent of today's frenetic vanity, Mr. Brahem was experimenting with encounters that have brought his capacity to assimilate and compare to maturity. The profound tension generated by respect for traditional models, on the one hand, and the desire for innovation, on the other, a tension that was moreover the mark of the most prestigious and renowned masters of the past, is the inspiration behind the music heard this afternoon.
Program note by Paolo Scarnecchia. Translation: Alastair McEwen
Anouar Brahem was born in 1957 in Halfaouine, Tunisia. Encouraged by his father, an engraver and printer, Mr. Brahem began his studies of the oud at the age of 10 at the Tunis National Conservatory of Music, where his principal teacher was oud master Ali Sriti. At the age of 18 he decided to dedicate himself entirely to music, slowly beginning to write his own compositions and give solo concerts in vari?ous cultural venues. In 1981, he departed for Paris where he remained for four years, composing extensively for Tunisian cinema and performing in festivals around France, the former Yugoslavia, Spain and Italy. In 1985, he returned to Tunisia on invitation to perform at the Carthage Festival where he had the opportunity to bring together Abdelwaheb Berbech, the Erkose brothers, Francois Jeanneau, Jean-Paul Celea, Francois Couturier and others in a project named Liqua 85. The success of this project
earned him Tunisia's Grand National Prize for Music.
In 1987, Mr. Brahem was appointed director of the Musical Ensemble of the City of Tunis. Instead of keeping together the large existing orchestra usually found in tra?ditional Western music, he broke the group up into a traditional Arabic formation of small size called a takht, where each instru?mentalist plays as both a soloist and as an improviser, sometimes improvising to the point of musical ecstasy for performer and audience alike. During this time, Mr. Brahem performed with Bechir Selmi and Taoufik Zghonda, with whom he undertook in-depth research on ancient manuscripts, creating pieces ranging from traditional Arabic music to performances of song in collaboration with the poet Ali Louati.
In 1990, he decided to leave the Musical Ensemble and embarked on a tour to North America, where he performed in New York, New Orleans, Atlanta, Chicago and Toronto. He established a close and very fruitful rela?tionship with ECM Records resulting in sev?eral albums with numerous world-renowned Arab, jazz and classical masters. His 1999 album, Thimar, was a collabora?tion with bassist Dave Holland, who appears in February 2003 in his own UMS debut. Anouar Brahem's most recent release, Le pas du chat noir, is a musical exploration with pianist Francois Couturier and accordionist Jean-Louis Matinier.
This afternoon's performance marks Anouar Brahem and the Anouar Brahem Trio's UMS debuts.

A contemporary Swedish swan bears no resemblance to a romantic Russian swan. In its classic version, Swan Lake is one of the world's most loved and most danced ballets. It was created in Moscow in 1875, when the composer Pyotr I. Tchaikovsky was commissioned to write the music for a ballet about a princess who was transformed into a swan. Tchaikovsky was a serious young man, while ballet and ballet music had, by that time, become a fairly superficial art form. Romantic French ballet had, by the mid-19th century, degen?erated into cheap entertainment with beau?tiful girls and handsome young men show?ing off their best leaps and pirouettes against the background of a banal and heartrending story. Ballet music was commissioned by the minute, with the special features desired by the leading dancers who, together with the choreographer, made additions to and cuts in the music if they found it unsuitable. Several decades later, the same tendency was now spreading to Tsarist Russia.
Tchaikovsky embarked on the work in great earnest. At 35, he had already com?posed three operas, three symphonies and some string quartets. Now, he aimed to introduce the symphonic approach that of expressing moods and furthering the plot into ballet as well. However, the choreogra?pher was incapable of coping with this material, which was at that time unique; the cut version with a mediocre ballerina was a fiasco in 1877.
After several attempts by other choreo?graphers, the French Marius Petipa and his pupil Lev Ivanov succeeded, seven years later, in creating a success. In the more than hundred years that have since elapsed, there have been innumerable interpretations of and changes in Swan Lake.
Original Story
Prince Siegfried is having a birthday party with his friends. His mother, the Queen, enters and tells him it is time for him to think about getting married. She has invited to the great ball on the following day some suitable young girls for the Prince to choose from. Downcast, he starts to daydream. In the first version, his friends take him on a nocturnal hunt.
In Act II, he arrives on the shore of a lake. There, he sees a group of swans rising from the water and, before his eyes, turning into damsels. He is astounded, and falls in love with one of them, the Swan Queen. She tells him that a spell has been cast upon her and her companions by a wizard, and that only the faithful love of a man can release them from the spell. Siegfried immediately vows to save them.
In Act III, it is time for the ball at the castle. The Prince is absent-minded and uninterested in the girls presented to him. Suddenly, an unknown guest arrives with his beautiful daughter. The man is the wiz?ard in disguise and the daughter is a replica of the Swan Queen, though dressed in black. The Prince falls for her, and at that moment the wizard and his daughter reveal them?selves and Siegfried realizes that he has bro?ken his vow of fidelity to the Swan Queen.
In the last act, he is back at Swan Lake, trying to remedy his mistake. There are many widely differing versions of the denouement. In the original version, the Swan Queen wants to throw herself into the lake and leave this life since she cannot suc?ceed in combating the wicked wizard. The Prince then dives down into the lake with her in order, finally, to be reunited with her in death; the other swans are thereby released from the spell. In another version, the wizard causes a storm that drowns the lovers.
When Swan Lake was incorporated in the repertory of the post-Revolution Soviet
Bolshoi Theatre, the ending was considered too fateful and depraved. Accordingly, a happy ending with more fighting spirit was commissioned. This led to a series of imagi?native versions. Most of them include a struggle between the Prince and the wizard between good and evil which the Prince, of course, wins. In the modern Soviet ver?sion now being performed at the Stockholm Opera House, the Prince and his swan walks, at the end, against the red sunrise, surrounded by the freed swan damsels, as in the social realism of a truly authentic Soviet poster.
Cullberg Ballet version
For the Cullberg Ballet, Mats Ek has for his part created a highly contemporary story loosely based on the traditional one. In it, Prince Siegfried lives a fairly isolated life. His is a one-parent family, and his relation?ship with his mother is close. He is restless, extremely jealous of his mother's lover and uninterested in the girl the queen presents to him, a pale copy of herself. Seeking refuge in his dreams, he meets his ideal swan. However, she has very little in common with the conventional romantic swan. The robust bird of today is no ethereal creature to be placed on a pedestal and worshipped, but rather a temperamental individual with a very strong personality. She is closely related to the healthy, down-to-earth Swedish lass of today. Rather than being merely a help?less object, a victim of the malevolent wiz?ard awaiting her liberator, she is an ener?getic swan, though the Prince tickles her curiosity and desire.
She also has strong bonds with nature -though not nature in the Central European romantic style, as backdrop or decoration, but nature that is highly tangible, fragrant and sensual, and that brings out the animal aspects of the Prince as well.
When the Prince awakens from his dream, he sets out on a journey, away from
his dominant mother, to seek love and his own identity. The absence of his father, the King, from his home may, perhaps, reinforce his quest for a male identity. He meets macho toreadors who lay women low instead of bulls; tough men who keep their women under control as if they were live?stock; and the wizard, who perhaps com?pensates for his inability to love by means of his power over women. The young Prince also meets the black swan, who is sullen, bad-tempered and challenging, but who nevertheless attracts him in a strange way.
Eventually, he finds the white swan of his dreams, only to discover that the black swan is another side of the same bird. He realizes, perhaps, that life consists of con?trasts and that no one, not even a swan, is black or white through and through. In any case, he leaves the stage not with a blissful grin on his face, but with an astonished and clear-sighted smile.
Mats Ek's Swan Lake is a detached, comic tale and a loving dig at the high ten?sion of romanticism. But, above all, it is a playful contemporary drama of personal development.
Cullberg Ballet has now entered its fourth decade as a leading compa?ny on the front line of modern dance. The ensemble has per?formed in 40 countries and is an important cultural ambassador for Sweden. The Cullberg Ballet's extensive international tours give foreign audiences a taste of Swedish culture at its best. Over the past 10 years the Cullberg Ballet has performed as many times abroad as in Sweden, scoring popular successes in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas. In Sweden, the company's widespread performances bring the best of Swedish dance to the national audiences. The Cullberg Ballet's dancers are the com?pany's greatest assets. The composition of the company's dancers has been interna-
tional from the start and many nationalities are represented in today's Cullberg Ballet. Since 1967, the dancers' technical proficien?cy and strong stage personalities have been the Cullberg Ballet's main characteristics.
Since 1950, when her Miss Julie had its premiere, Birgit Cullberg has exerted strong influence over contemporary Swedish and foreign ballet. In 1967 she founded the pre?sent Cullberg Ballet under the organization Riksteatern, with eight handpicked interna?tional dancers, three of which were Swedes.
In the 1970s, Mats Ek created powerful and socially committed works such as Soweto and Bernarda for the Cullberg Ballet. In the following decade, he concentrated on pioneering new versions of the old classics Giselle and Swan Lake. During the 1990s, Mats Ek's creations have included the Emmy-awarded Carmen for the Cullberg Ballet.
Over the years, many leading choreog?raphers have been invited to the Cullberg Ballet, including Alvin Ailey, Merce Cunningham, Nacho Duato, Jiri Kylian, Christopher Bruce, Billy Forsythe, Jean-Pierre Perreault, Ohad Naharin and Rui Horta. The Company's artistic direction continues its valuable partnership with choreographer Mats Ek. His highly acclaimed liberal versions of the classical ballets Swan Lake and Sleeping Beauty have been an enormous success both in Sweden and abroad.
The artistic directors also initiate devel?opment of young, up-and-coming talents. In the past few years Cullberg Ballet has worked with new, young choreographers such as Orjan Andersson, Jens Ostberg, Johan Inger, Philippe Blanchard and Stijn Celis who have choreographed works specif?ically for the ensemble.
Tonight's performance marks the Cullberg Ballet's UMS debut.
Margareta Lidstrom (Co-Artistic Director) received her ballet training at the Royal Opera in Stockholm. She also studied in London, Copen?hagen, Monte Carlo and Cannes. In 1973 she was engaged at the Royal Swedish Ballet, and in 1978 she became a soloist. She was appointed premiere dancer in 1987.
Margareta Lidstrom has danced leading roles in classical ballets by Petipa, Balanchine, Cranko, Ashton and Bournonville. She has also danced in modern ballets by Birgit Cullberg and Mats Ek as well as in works by Jiri Kylian, John Neumeier, Jerome Robbins, Glen Tetley and Niels Christie.
Margareta joined the Cullberg Ballet in 1992 as rehearsal assistant. She has assisted Carolyn Carlson, Mats Ek, Ohad Naharin and Jens Ostberg. In July 1995, Margareta Lidstrom became Artistic Director of the Cullberg Ballet together with Lena Wennergren-Juras.
Lena Wennergren-Juras (Co-Artistic Director) has been a part of the Cullberg Ballet since its foundation in 1967. Between 1964-1966 Lena attended the Academy of Ballet in Stockholm, where she studied classical ballet and jazz as well as modern dance. She spent 1966-1967 in the US, train?ing at Martha Graham's school.
Lena Wennergren-Juras has closely col?laborated with Birgit Cullberg, who created the leading roles in her ballets Eurydice is Dead, Romeo and Juliet and Revolt specifically for her. She has also danced in many of Mats Ek's ballets, including Bernarda, Rite of Spring and Giselle.
When Lena retired as a dancer, her col?laboration with Mats Ek deepened, and she came to work full time as his rehearsal assis?tant.
Lena Wennergren-Juras and Margareta Lidstrom became Artistic Directors of the Cullberg Ballet in July 1995.

Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 15 or 16, 1770 in Bonn,
Germany Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Tonight marks the 11th UMS performance of Ludwig van Beethoven's Symphony No. 6. The Boston Festival Orchestra gave the UMS premiere in May 1900.
Any musicians and writers on music in the 18th century were preoccupied with music's expressive and representative powers. Time and again, composers attempted to demon?strate that music was able, even without the help of words, to depict specific feelings and emotions, and even to narrate a sequence of events. Examples abound, from Johann Kuhnau's Biblical Sonatas (1700) to Vivaldi's Four Seasons (1725) to Dittersdorf's sym?phonies based on Ovid's Metamorphoses (1785). It seems that Beethoven was often inspired by extra-musical images in his compositions. Occasionally, he responded to literary works such as the tomb scene from Romeo and Juliet in the second movement of his String Quartet in F Major (Op. 18, No. 1), or The Tempest in the Piano Sonata in d minor (Op. 31, No. 2) -though it is not always clear how the connection is to be understood. With Symphony No. 6, the evi?dence is more concrete than in the other cases, since we have Beethoven's own titles for the individual movements. On the other hand, we also have his partial disclaimer about those titles, intended, as he insisted, "more [as] an expression of feeling than painting." On one of the sketch pages for the symphony, Beethoven noted: "All paint?ing in instrumental music fails if it is pushed too far"; and indeed, for every bird call or thunderclap there are long stretches of evocative if not exactly descriptive music throughout the symphony.
Beethoven's attitude towards nature was different from other composers writing "characteristic" symphonies (as program?matic works were often called) in the early 19th century. Beethoven not only loved nature but, as many of his friends attested, worshipped it. Haydn and Mozart were not known for roaming the Austrian country?side; Beethoven, for his part, spent long happy hours in the woods. He often retreat?ed from Vienna to outlying areas such as Heiligenstadt, Dobling, or Gneixendorf, where he admired Nature (with a capital 'N') as a true spiritual child of Jean-Jacques Rousseau and the German Sturm und Drang (storm and stress) movement. "His response to Nature was too deep and intense to be called anything less than mystical," English author Basil Lam wrote, "though one would not have dared to use the expression in his presence."
Beethoven became fascinated with the musical sounds of nature years before the composition of the "Pastoral" symphony: as early as 1803, he notated in one of his sketchbooks a musical rendition of the sound of water in a stream. Even earlier, he made a musical reference to nature in the "Heiligenstadt Testament," the tragic docu?ment in which Beethoven first wrote about his encroaching deafness in 1802 (the Testament was addressed to Beethoven's two brothers but never sent). "What a humilia?tion for me when someone standing next to me heard a flute in the distance and I heard nothing, or someone heard a shepherd singing and again I heard nothing." It is dif?ficult not to think of this mention of the shepherd when listening to the "Shepherd's Song" in the finale of Symphony No. 6. The love for the sounds of nature became insep?arable from the pain of not being able to hear them.
Nature, then, acquired a transcendent meaning for Beethoven. More than a place replete with forests, brooks, birds, and shep-
herds, Nature is a stage where an entire human drama unfolds: it is Beethoven's per?sonal drama that receives universal signifi?cance through the musical treatment. In this sense, the happiness, the storm, and the rec?onciliation of the elements must be under?stood on a symbolic level as well as in a lit?eral sense. Symphony No. 6, composed almost simultaneously with Symphony No. 5, then, has more in common with that work than one might think. In its own way, the "Pastoral" also represents a triumph over Fate, but the same conflicts are played out in a different arena. One similarity between the two works is the linkage of the last movements. Just as Symphony No. 5's gloomy c-minor "Allegro" is connected to the finale without a pause, the last three movements of the "Pastoral," the country dance, the storm, and the thanksgiving song, form an uninterrupted sequence.
Of course, the differences between the two symphonies are no less important than the similarities. The most striking of these is, perhaps, the reduced role of musical con?trast in the "Pastoral" -nowhere else does Beethoven spend so much time on one melody, a single harmonic turn, or rhyth?mic figure. While Symnphony No. 5 is char?acterized by an unrelenting impulse to move forward and a constant modification of its motifs, the "Pastoral" favors identical repetitions and extensive pedals (long-held bass notes), in order to emphasize the basic subject matter, which is the peaceful con?templation of nature and people in it.
There is no doubt that Beethoven was inspired by sounds he had heard (when he could still hear) during his long walks in the countryside. The calls of the nightingale, quail, and cuckoo at the end of the second movement are the most obvious examples, but there are others. Beethoven's secretary, the often-unreliable Anton Schindler, reported the following anecdote, which he could hardly have invented himself:
Beethoven asked me if I had not observed how village musicians often played in their sleep, occasionally letting their instruments fall and remaining entirely quiet, then awakening with a start, throwing in a few vigorous blows or strokes at a venture, but generally in the right key, and then falling asleep again; he had tried to copy these poor people in his "Pastoral" symphony.
Schindler then proceeded to point out those measures in the symphony's third move?ment in which "the sleep-drunken second bassoon [repeats] a few tones, while contra?bass, violoncello, and viola keep quiet...[later] we see the viola wake up and apparently awaken the violoncello -and the second horn also sounds three notes, but at once sinks into silence again."
More often than not, however, the sym?phony expresses feelings, rather than depict?ing scenes or objects, as Beethoven himself had said. It expresses them with an amazing directness, apparent in the simplicity and warmth of the melodic ideas and the obvi?ous pleasure taken in orchestral color. We have seen that in the "Pastoral" Beethoven dwelt on individual melodies and chords for much longer than he did in other works; by contrast, he varied the orchestration by con?stantly shifting the same melodies and melodic fragments from instrument to instrument, from one register into another. Rarely does one section of the orchestra retain prominence for more than a few measures at a time; from the point of view of orchestration, this is definitely one of Beethoven's most innovative scores. Another unprecedented idea is the introduction of two solo cellos with mutes, playing their own individual parts throughout the second movement. In the storm music of the fourth movement, there is a slight discrepancy between the cello and the double bass parts: the former have rapid scale passages that span five notes, while the latter play similar passages with only four notes. The beat being divided into five parts by the cellos
and into four parts by the basses, the notes don't exactly coincide, resulting in a contin?uous rumble that undoubtedly resembles the sound of the thunder. It is at this point that the trumpets and timpani are first heard in the symphony. Their sonorities add power to the storm music; the climax is marked by the first entrance of the trom?bones, which have also been silent until now. The trumpets and trombones are retained in the finale, enhancing the solemn mood of the "thanksgiving song." But the timpani drops out and, as a result, the "Allegretto" sounds much more intimate and serene.
The "Pastoral" symphony has often been cited as the starting point of 19th-cen?tury program music. There is an important difference, however. In the works of Berlioz, Liszt, and other Romantic composers, it is often the literary program that dictates musical structure. In Beethoven's Symphony No. 6, the extra-musical ideas begin to impinge upon musical form, yet the Classical symphonic structure remains basi?cally intact. Despite the extra movement between the scherzo and the finale and despite several idiosyncrasies due to the program, classical sonata form, with its own purely musical dramaturgy, still holds sway. Beethoven may have been responsive to extra-musical inspirations, yet he was first and foremost a musician. And he was never a more "absolute" musician than he was in his programmatic Symphony No. 6.

A pan-demonium for chansonnier and orchestra after children's rhymes by H.C. Artmann
Heinz Karl Gruber
Born January 3, 1943 in Vienna, Austria
Tonight's performance marks the UMS pre?miere ofHK Gruber's Frankenstein!!.
Forget that you are at a symphony concert. You are at a cafe-theater, where a great actor-singer celebrates Halloween year-round with funny songs about monsters, vampires, and their friends. But here is the catch (the first of many): what makes the experience really funny is that you are at a symphony concert! You're not sitting at a table, sipping your drink and cheering a company of comedians. Instead, you are in a concert auditorium, watching the musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra put down their expensive instruments they have been prac?ticing all their lives, and pick up hosepipes, kazoos, whistles, and other children's toys, to create what the composer called for in the subtitle of his work -a pandemonium.
The second catch is that for all the pan?demonium, HK Gruber is a serious compos?er of orchestral and theatrical music. What this means is that his work has to be viewed in the context of the Austrian classical tradi?tion even as he rebels against it. Actually, what Gruber rebels against is the latest stage of the tradition: the post-Webernian serial-ism of Friedrich Cerha and the ensemble Die Reihe (The Tone Row), the principal forum of new music in Vienna that for many years was the only one. Yet rebelling against the revolutionaries can never mean a return to pre-revolutionary conditions. Moreover, Gruber played contrabass in Die Reihe for a long time and absorbed the modernist repertoire and the modernist aes?thetics at an early age. But his own ensem-
ble, which he started in 1968 with his col?leagues Kurt Schwertsik and Otto M. Zykan, followed a different orientation. It was called "MOB art & tone ART," and embraced popular idioms, including the cabaret style out of which grew Frankenstein!! from the very start. The songs of Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill were important models, but Gruber is quintes-sentially Viennese. His musical instincts, his earliest influences, his special brand of humor are all Austrian, and his monsters are dancing around to the tune of Austrian nursery rhymes.
Gruber found the ideal collaborator in H.C. Artmann (1921-2000), who was famous among other things for his poet?ry written in the Viennese dialect. Artmann's original children's rhymes in Frankenstein!! were in literary German, but full of Viennese colloquialisms. Superman, Batman, and Robin get along very well with the native Viennese vampire Grete Miiller.
The composer-performer matched the poet's verbal virtuosity with some fireworks of his own. His performance as a chanson-nier, which he has repeated all over the world, has created a new genre of symphon?ic cabaret. The "cabaret" part is rather self-explanatory; but the symphonic dimension, perhaps, needs a little commentary. The melodicas, whistles, and popped paper bags are completely integrated into the orchestral texture, treated as equals in their combina?tions with more academically respected effects such as string harmonics and flutter-tongues in the woodwinds. The simple rhythms of the children's rhymes can become quite complex through rhythmic displacements, syncopations, and poly-meters of different kinds. In addition, some of the instrumental parts are a lot harder than they seem. Even the toy-instrument parts are sometimes tricky to keep together, but the writing for the "real" instruments can be outright virtuosic, adding another
dimension to that apparent simplicity. All in all, Frankenstein!! has many layers. For all its earthy humor and Gruber's unique charis?ma as a chansonnier, the work could never have had this kind of success if it didn't have a "serious" musical core. Gruber has said: "To me, composing means creating new connections [among the tones]." And that is something we can always feel in Frankenstein!!, in spite of all the pandemo?nium.

Overture to Poet and Peasant
Franz von Supp6
Born April 18, 1819 in Spalato,
Dalmatia Died May 21, 1895 in Vienna, Austria
Tonight's performance marks the second UMS performance of Franz von Suppe's Overture to Poet and Peasant.
The story of Poet and Peasant, one of the earliest Viennese operettas, has long since fallen into oblivion, but the portraits of the two title characters stand before us, with their features clearly defined, in the ever-popular overture to the piece. After a short introductory fanfare, der Dichter spricht (the Poet speaks), to borrow the title of the last movement of Schumann's piano cycle Scenes from Childhood, Op. 15 written only eight years before Poet and Peasant. The solo cello is the Poet's voice, accompanied by the harp, that most poetic of instruments. Yet the Poet is soon awakened from his Romantic reverie by the lively dance of the village peo?ple, and he is soon swept up in the festivi?ties, with a glass of wine in his hand.
Franz von Suppe's first language was Italian (he was a distant relative of Donizetti), but he moved to Vienna at the age of 16 and soon became connected with
the Theater an der Josefstadt and later with the Theater an der Wien. These were places where a special, and typically Viennese, form of popular theater was developing, and Suppe used his talents to increase the role of music in these productions. But the line between high-brow and low-brow had not yet been drawn; Suppers more than 200 stage works include grand operas as well as Viennese farces and operettas after the French models of Offenbach.
Romantic poetry and rustic entertain?ment seem to co-exist happily in Poet and Peasantjust as they do in Beethoven's Symphony No. 6, where the dreamy "Scene by the Brook" is immediately followed by the "Merry Gathering of the Countryfolk."
Program note by Peter Laki.
Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Most is in his first season as Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra. He first conducted The Cleveland Orchestra in 1993 and has maintained a close relationship with the Orchestra since that time. Mr. Welser-Most's appointment as Music Director was announced in June 1999.
Franz Welser-Most opened The Cleveland Orchestra's 20022003 subscrip?tion season with Haydn's The Creation. In addition to the current Midwest tour, Mr. Welser-Most leads the Orchestra on an East Coast tour that includes a Carnegie Hall res?idency in February. He closes the 200203 Severance Hall season with concert perfor?mances of Verdi's Don Carlo.
Franz Welser-Most made his debut with The Cleveland Orchestra in February 1993 and returned to Severance Hall in April 1995. In each subsequent season, he has conducted the Orchestra for twoand three-week engagements. As guest conductor, Mr. Welser-Most has led the Orchestra in over 70 concerts, in programs comprising a
wide-ranging repertoire.
Since making his American debut with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra in 1989, Mr. Welser-Most has returned regular?ly to the US, appearing with the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, Philadelphia and Saint Louis. In addition to his three weeks of subscription concerts with The Cleveland Orchestra dur?ing the 20012002 season, he conducted return engagements with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the Los Angeles Philharmonic.
Franz Welser-Most served as Music Director of the Zurich Opera from 1995 to 2002, having made his debut there in 1992 with Der Rosenkavalier. During his tenure, he conducted 27 new productions and, each season, led numerous revivals, including operas from the French, German, Italian and Slavic repertoires. Highlights of his tenure as Music Director in Zurich include
Wagner's complete Ring Cycle during the 0102 season with an additional performance of the cycle at the 2002 Zurich Festival. With the 0203 season, Mr. Welser-Most becomes Principal Conductor of the Zurich Opera. He also has conducted at
the Vienna State Opera, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, and at the Glyndebourne Festival in Great Britain.
Mr. Welser-Most's rise to international fame as a conductor began in 1986 when he made his debut with the London Philharm?onic, commencing a relationship that devel?oped over the next four years and resulted in his being appointed music director in 1990, a position he held for six years. In addition to a continuous relationship with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, he has conducted the La Scala Orchestra and the
Oslo Philharmonic. He also has conducted the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra. Mr. Welser-Most made his debut with the Vienna Philharmonic in 1998, conducting the orchestra at the Mozart Festival Week in Salzburg and at Vienna's Musikverein. He made his Berlin Philharmonic debut with concerts in January 2002.
Mr. Welser-Most has made numerous recordings with the London Philharmonic under an exclusive recording contract with EMI, including music of Mozart, Bruckner and Schumann, and 20th-century works by Schmidt, Stravinsky, Orff, Kancheli, and Part. His recording of Franz Schmidt's Symphony No. 4 won the 1996 Gramophone Award for "best orchestral recording." His recording of Bruckner's Mass No. 3 and Te Deum was nominated for a Grammy Award, as was his first recording with the Philadel?phia Orchestra, of music by Korngold. His most recent releases are HK Gruber's Frankenstein!!, Schmidt's The Book of the Seven Seals (which received a Grammy nomination), Schubert's "Death and the Maiden" string quartet (as orchestrated by Mahler) coupled with Schreker's Chamber Symphony, and the world-premiere record?ing of Johann Strauss Jr.'s Simplicius with the Zurich Opera Orchestra, which won the Deutsche Schallplattenpreis.
In October 1995, Mr. Welser-Most received an "Outstanding Achievement Award" from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights in Los Angeles in recogni?tion of his personal support and advocacy on behalf of people with disabilities, and in particular for his support of the Hartheim Institute, a home for the disabled in Linz, Austria. Mr. Welser-Most was born in Linz and studied in that city with composer Balduin Sulzer.
Tonight's performance marks Mr. Welser-Most's UMS debut.
Composer, conductor, chansonnier and double bass player HK Gruber is one of the most well-known and well-loved figures in the Austrian contemporary music scene, and yet he remains something of an enigma. Composing in his own highly individual style, he has been labelled 'new-Romantic,' 'neo-tonal,' 'neo-expressionistic' and 'neo-Viennese,' but his music remains refreshing?ly non-doctrinaire -a deceptively simple and darkly ironic idiom which often includes a heavy dose of black humor. Berg, Stravinsky, cabaret and popular music are all influences, but whatever stylistic ingredi?ents he uses in his works, he remains inim?itably himself: one of the major talents of post-war music.
Born in Vienna in 1943, Gruber sang with the Vienna Boys Choir as a child and then studied at the Vienna Hochschule fur Musik -double bass with Ludwig Streicher, theory with Hanns Jelinek, and composition with Erwin Ratz and Gottfried von Einem. In 1961 he began playing double bass with the ensemble Die Reihe (and is currently their Artistic Director) and from 1969 to 1998 he played in the Radio Symphony Orchestra-Vienna.
Gruber's most popular and beloved composition, the neo-gothic 'pandemonium' Frankenstein!!, was premiered in 1978 by Simon Rattle and the Royal Liverpool
Philharmonic Orchestra. Since then it has traveled across several continents in several languages and in different guises: in concert, in staged per?formances, on televi?sion, and on film. In 1997 the work was released on CD by
EMI Classics with the Camerata Academica Salzburg and Franz Welser-Most, featuring
the composer as chansonnier. Among Gruber's other compositions are two violin concertos written for Ernst Kovacic, a cello concerto written for Yo-Yo Ma (world pre?miere at Tanglewood in 1989), the percus?sion concerto Rough Music, a trumpet con?certo Aerial written for Hakan Hardenberger (commissioned by the BBC Proms) and, most recently, Zeitfluren, a 25-minute work for chamber orchestra (com?missioned jointly by the London Sinfonietta, Europaische Musikmonat Basel, Swedish Chamber Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group). His dramatic works include the apocalyptic opera Gomorra, staged at the Vienna Volksoper in 1993, and Gloria, staged at the 1994 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival and the Munich Volkstheater.
As a conductor, Gruber works regularly with groups such as Ensemble Modern, London Sinfonietta, and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra. Conducting highlights of 20012002 include the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Leipzig MDR Orchestra, London Sinfonietta, Swedish Chamber Orchestra, a concert performance of Weill's Mahagonny at the Brucknerhaus Linz, and a composer's portrait concert at New York's Carnegie Hall.
He first began performing as a singer actor with the "MOB art & tone ART" ensemble, a group he co-founded in 1968 with fellow Viennese composers Kurt Schwertsik and Otto Zykan. Since then he has appeared extensively in this role, most notably in his own work Frankenstein!!, and also in Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire and Maxwell Davies's Eight Songs for a Mad King. Highlights of the 20012002 season include appearances at the Bremen Musikfest, Aspen Music Festival, with the Seattle Symphony and performances of Frankenstein!! in Philadelphia and at Carnegie Hall in New York with the
Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
Passionate about the music of Kurt Weill and Hanns Eisler, he is a frequent interpreter of their works and has recorded Roaring Eisler and Die Dreigroschenoper for BMG, as well as Weill's Berlin im Licht (Largo), all with Ensemble Modern. He also recorded a disc for BMG of Weill songs arranged for dance band with the Palast Orchester and Max Raabe, which received a Deutschen Schallplattenkritik award in 2001.
As part of the bicentenary tribute to Mozart, Gruber devised, scored and acted in Barrie Gavin's television film Bring me the head of Amadeus. His performance of Frankenstein!! at London's Almeida Festival was televised by the BBC and he is also fea?tured in documentary films about Eisler (the award-winning Solidarity Song: The Hanns Eisler Story) and von Einem {lch habe immer Gluckgehabt). In 1993, Gruber and Schwertsik were the focus of the South Bank Centre's Alternative Vienna Festival, which showcased composers who have changed the face of Viennese music over the past two decades.
The works of HK Gruber are published by Boosey & Hawkes.
Tonight's performance marks HK Gruber's UMS debut.
Long considered one of America's great orchestras, The Cleveland Orchestra stands today among the world's most-revered symphonic ensembles. In concerts at home in Severance Hall, at Blossom and on tour, in radio and television broadcasts, and in its critically-admired discography, The Cleveland Orchestra continues to set stan?dards of performing excellence and imagi?native programming that serve as models for audiences and performers alike.
In September 2002, Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Most began his tenure as Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra. He first conducted the Orchestra in 1993, and has since returned to Severance Hall as a guest conductor on a regular basis, leading the ensemble in more than 70 concerts.
The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918 under the direction of Russian-American conductor Nikolai Sokoloff, who initiated an extensive domestic touring schedule, educational concerts, commercial recordings, and radio broadcasts. Concerts were given at Grays Armory during the Orchestra's first season, after which they moved to Cleveland's Masonic Auditorium. In 1931, the Orchestra moved to its new permanent home, Severance Hall, in Cleveland's University Circle area. This magnificent facility was primarily the gift of John L. Severance (Musical Arts Association president from 1921 to 1936) as a memorial to his wife, who had died prematurely dur?ing its construction. Severance Hall was among the first concert halls in America designed and built with radio broadcasting capability.
Artur Rodzinski served as Music Director from 1933 to 1943. Highlights of his decade in Cleveland included the pre?sentation of 15 fully-staged operas at Severance Hall as well as renewed recording and radio broadcasts. Erich Leinsdorf served as Music Director from 1943 to 1946, although much of his directorship was in absentia while serving in the US Armed Forces during World War II.
Under George Szell, named Music Director in 1946, The Cleveland Orchestra entered a new period of dramatic and sus?tained growth. Both the number of Orchestra members and the length of the season were increased, international tours were inaugurated, and the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus was established (Robert Shaw was engaged to direct the group). The
expansion to a year-round season was made possible in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center on an 800-acre site south of Cleveland, Ohio.
Pierre Boulez began his association with The Cleveland Orchestra in 1965; after Szell's death in 1970, Boulez served as Musical Advisor until 1972. Lorin Maazel began a decade as Music Director with the 197273 season. He continued the Orchestra's international touring and recording schedule, while broadening the ensemble's repertoire with more 20th-centu?ry compositions.
Christoph von Dohnanyi's tenure as the Orchestra's sixth Music Director (1984 to 2002) included a distinguished series of concerts at home in Cleveland each year. In addition, the Orchestra and Mr. Dohnanyi made frequent domestic and international concert tours, including regular return engagements at Austria's prestigious Salzburg Festival.
Adding to the Cleveland discographies of earlier music directors, Mr. Dohnanyi created an extensive discography of digital recordings with The Cleveland Orchestra, including the complete symphonies of Beethoven, Brahms, and Schumann; sym?phonies by Berlioz, Bruckner, Dvorak, Mahler, Mozart, Schubert, Shostakovich, and Tchaikovsky; music of Bartok, Luto-slawski, Ives, Smetana, Webern, and Varese; and the first two operas in Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung cycle. A series of discs with The Cleveland Orchestra has been recorded in recent years under the direction of Pierre Boulez (Deutsche Grammophon and Philips), Vladimir Ashkenazy (Decca), and Oliver Knussen (Argo and Deutsche Gram?mophon).
Christoph von Dohnanyi oversaw Severance Hall's $36-million renovation and restoration project, which included the con?struction of a new concert stage, the refur?bishment and re-installation of the building's
original Norton Memorial Organ, expanded backstage support facilities, and enhanced technical capabilities. Mr. Dohnanyi became Music Director Laureate of The Cleveland Orchestra in September 2002, following the end of his tenure as Music Director.
Franz Welser-Most's appointment as Music Director was announced in June 1999, providing for a seamless transition in the artistic leadership of The Cleveland Orchestra with the 0203 season. At home in Severance Hall, the Orchestra begins a new era under Mr. Welser-Most's guidance, while main?taining a steadfast commitment to its long-held traditions of artistic excellence, educa?tional outreach, and community service.
Tonight's performance in Detroit's Orchestra Hall marks The Cleveland Orchestra's 30th appearance under UMS auspices. The Orchestra made their UMS debut on March 28, 1935 in Hill Auditorium under the baton of Maestro Artur Rodzinski. Over the past 67 years, the Cleveland Orchestra has appeared under UMS auspices under esteemed conduc?tors Erich Leinsdorf, George Szell, Pierre Boulez, Lorin Maazel and Christoph von Dohndnyi.
