Fall 2002 Season
University of Michigan Ann Arbor
"he 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 1 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. ---------
Sincerely, ,
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
'hank 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
x0has 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
. t is a pleasure to welcome you to this performance of the UMS 0203 season. With world-renowned performers, new community
1 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.

Choral Union Audition information and performance schedules for the UMS Choral Union.
1 hrough 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
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. 1
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.

Crisler Arena
risler 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
"I otwithstanding 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
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.
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
"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.
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
'ixty years ago, chamber music concerts in , Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented I 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 tr
EMU Convocation Center
n exciting new era in EMU athletics was Lset 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
uilt 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 :;v-,vn
Detroit Opera House
'he Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000-square-foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the 2,735-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
rchestra 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 J
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 l
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 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.

Greetings! With the holiday season fast approaching and the UMS season in hill swing, I'm delighted to share in the excitement and energy of some of the most exciting performance presentation in southeastern Michigan!
As many of you know, former ticket office manager Michael Gowing has left us for a relaxing and well-deserved retirement. 1 was lucky enough to spend several weeks working side-by-side with the legendary Mr. Gowing and consider myself even luckier to be finally meeting the patrons of whom he spoke so fondly with such frequency.
As a Michigan native, I am happy to return home after years of exploring the customer service end of the performing arts in various cities throughout the US -happier still to have found a home with UMS. Not only is Ann Arbor a wonderful community filled with charm, intelligence, diversity and warmth, UMS is a truly exceptional organization presenting a diverse program of the highest quality in music, dance, and theater (rarely found in the world of the performing arts). Tonight's program is just a sample of the standard of excellence UMS holds -a standard that has had many of you returning season after season, in venue after venue, to look, listen and love the arts.
Working in the UMS Ticket Office, I have the privilege of working with an excellent staff who remain committed to providing the best customer service pos?sible. Sally Cushing celebrates her 34th year with UMS. Many of you have heard ;__ her friendly voice coming from the phone room in the Burton
Tower Ticket Office when calling to purchase tickets. Angela Clock, our new Assistant Manager, can be found in the League Ticket Office, guaranteeing your ticket exchanges and in-person sales are done expediently and with a smile. Rob Hubbard is always concerned with you having the best ticketing experience possible, both on the phone, or in person at the League or at concerts and events. For all of your group ticketing needs, Lakshmi Kilaru is accessible Monday through Friday in the Burton Tower Ticket Office. We also have a wonderful group of
student employees who provide an excellent foundation of support in our cus?tomer service initiative and share our love of the arts.
This season progresses with impressive highlights as the Boston Pops in UM's Crisler Arena, Audra McDonald, the Vienna Philharmonic in Detroit, and the Royal Shakespeare Company returning to Ann Arbor for a three-play residency which includes the US premiere of Salmon Rushdie's Midnight's Children. As this season progresses into the months ahead, I look forward to handling your ticket?ing needs, filling your subscription orders and sharing my love of the arts with such an exceptional group of people.
Thank you for welcoming me to the UMS family!

Introducing Orquestra de Sao Paulo
ith their cosmopolitan makeup, Brazil and the state of Sao Paulo in particular have often been described as ethnic "melting pots." I find that description somewhat inadequate. The term "melting pot" conveys the idea of a process of fusion in which diverse elements merge to form a single mass, losing their separate colors, clarity and substance along with the various other essential aspects of their identity. Personally, I prefer to think of Sao Paulo as a place where people from a very wide variety of origins come together and harmonize like the instruments in an orchestra. They retain their individuality and the greater their differences and the contrasts between them the more magnificent and enthralling the final result.
In Sao Paulo, people who have come from every corner of the globe preserve their own customs and traditions while contributing enormously to the development of their new country, through their labor, their investment and their knowledge, but also and delec-tably with their art, their cuisine, their typical ways of celebrating, that help to bring us closer together, reinforce our mutual respect for one another and deepen our sense of brotherhood.
Orquestra de Sao Paulo (OSP) the State of Sao Paulo Symphony Orchestra is the living, beguiling embodiment in sound of this vast harmonious plurality of cultures that we see immediately reflected in the origins of its members. Some are recent arrivals from distant lands; others, like our much-loved conductor John Neschling, drawn to Sao Paulo from virtually every other state in Brazil, are the children, grandchildren and great-grand?children of people who crossed the oceans in search of a new homeland that welcomed them with warmth and appreciation.
Without regard for the barriers of time, gender or nationality, the OSP's repertoire is the expression of a journey across the vast universe of music, bringing to audiences the works of internationally renowned masters from the past along with the prolific output of the many great classical composers that our country has produced since the 18th century.
The exuberant variety of the typical rhythms of Brazil samba, bossa nova, chorinho, baiao, xaxado, batuque, and others adds a special sparkle to OSP's concert performances. The Orchestra "dresses-up" some of the classics of Brazilian popular music in a rich sym?phonic garb while preserving the spontaneity of those soft, sweet, warm cadences that are so evocative of the charms of this tropical country. On Thursday evening's concert, the Orchestra is joined by the wonderful Banda Mantiqueira, in a thrilling encounter that unites the classical and popular aspects of Brazilian culture.
The Government of the State of Sao Paulo is pleased and honored to present this sumptuous and flavorsome spectacle of multiculturalism for the enjoyment of the people in Ann Arbor tonight and in the US. We believe that the OSP is not only a superb adver?tisement for the achievements of Brazilian art and culture but also a vehicle for bringing people from every part of the world together in the cause of peace. ' ' ""
Enjoy the concerts!

Tonight's performance marks the UMS jj
premiere of Edino Krieger's Passacaglia for J
the New Millennium.
Edino Krieger was born in Santa Catarina in "i 1928 and moved to Rio de Janeiro in 1945 to continue his studies at the Conservatorio Brasileiro de Miisica. As a young man, he j closely followed the discussions on the direction of Brazilian culture and politics, I including nationalism and internationalism, j popularity and avant-garde, dodecaphony J and tonality. His music reflects the postj modern acceptance of juxtaposing styles, j including expressive incursions into the field j of atonal experimentalism as well as the j popular urban music of choroes (interpreters of chows--popular Brazilian music) and j jazz players. He is beloved by the Brazilian I music milieu because of the apparent ease j of his creative process. In addition, he is also j the leading mentor of the music biennials in i Rio de Janeiro that encourage composition 1 and interpretation of contemporary music. )
The Passacalha para o novo Milenio was i especially composed for the Orquestra de Sao J Paulo in July 1999. The piece is a composition j of pre-classic formal structure, in which melodic-rhythmic elements of Brazilian I popular music, past to future, are inserted. 1
The harmonic language presents a predominance of minor chords, sometimes j juxtaposed, as consonant clusters or in ?{
arrangements of ornamental character. The j theme, which is originally presented with a 3 pesante character by the double-basses and 4 the contrabassoon, is repeated 13 times, always beginning a semitone above the pre' vious statement, so as to encompass all of ! the tones of the chromatic scale. !
Beginning with the sixth presentation, typical Brazilian elements begin to oppose the classical feature of the theme. The oboe solo that emerges from the texture is cajoled by the rhythm of the marcha-rancho (slow carnival march music). Later, a clarinet solo embroiders waltz contours to the accompa?niment of the harp, and following zfugato episode, the metallic fanfare of a frevo (typi?cal fast dance) overlaps the low pedal of the theme. The finale has a festive character, as if to optimistically welcome the passage to the current millennium.

Double Concerto for Two Guitars and Orchestra, Op. 201
Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco
Born April 3, 1895 in Florence, Italy Died March 16,1968 in Beverly Hills, CA
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco's v Double Concerto for Two Guitars and Orchestra.
Persuaded by the famous Spanish guitarist Andres Segovia, composer Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco produced a significant canon of pieces that contributed to the 20th century's revival of the classical guitar.
Displaying musical talent at a very early age, at 10 years old, Castelnuovo-Tedesco M composed two pieces for the piano, a Noturne and a Barcarole. He attended the Cherubini Conservatory in Florence and 'I studied piano with Edgardo del Valle de Paz. Following his graduation in 1914, he con?tinued his composition studies with Ildebrando Pizzetti, who was an influential mentor. Thereafter, Castelnuovo-Tedesco was called to the attention of pianist, con?ductor, and composer Alfredo Casella, who was the indefatigable defender of the musical
revival in Italy who played an integral role in promoting Castelnuovo-Tedesco's music to international audiences.
During the 1920s and '30s, Castelnuovo-Tedesco worked as an independent pianist and composer in Florence, whose music was sought by esteemed performers such as Gieseking, Heifetz and Toscanini for perfor?mances throughout Europe and the US.
The collaboration with Andres Segovia began in Venice in 1932 during the Inter?national Festival, when Segovia insisted that Castelnuovo-Tedesco compose a piece for guitar. The composer replied that he would be delighted to do so, but that he had no idea of how to go about it. As a reply, Segovia sent -. him the variations by Fernando Sor and by Manuel Ponce that contained the major dif?ficulties that might be faced by the guitar. Castelnuovo-Tedesco responded by writing
Jthe Variazioni-attraverso isecoli (Variations) throughout the centuries), Op. 71, about ! which Segovia commented, "It is the first Uptime I meet a musician who immediately understands how to write for the guitar." The piece eventually compelled Segovia to make an even more daring request, this time for a concerto for guitar and orchestra.
Around this time, the "racial campaign" in fascist Italy was placing Castelnuovo-Tedesco, who was Jewish, into a distressing situation, so much so that for some time he was even held back from composing. Segovia's arrival in Florence gave him sup?port at a time when many colleagues turned their backs to him. With his colleague's motivation, Castelnuovo-Tedesco began writing again, and in January 1939, the Concerto in D Major, Op. 99 was premiered
? by Segovia under the baton of L. Baldi in 1-Montevideo. Considered by many to be the first guitar concerto of the 20th century, it,
i was written the same year as Joaquim.
' Rodrigo's Concerto de Aranjuez.
': In July of that year, Castelnuovo-Tedesco
left for the US, becoming an American citizen
in 1946. He worked in the US for over 10 years, composing soundtracks for movies and teaching composition at the Los Angeles Conservatory.
The Concerto for Two Guitars and Orchestra, Op. 201 is from the composer's North American period and is also the out?come of the composer's meeting with the guitar duo Ida Presti and Alexandre Lagoya, for whom he had previously composed the Sonatina Canonica, Op. 196 and Les Guitarres bien temperees, Op. 199. In the Concerto for Two Guitars, the composer's mastery of idiomatic writing for the guitar is revealed and set in a texture that is more sonorous than in the Concerto in D Major, with new colors brought by the percussion instruments.
The first movement, "Un poco modera-to e pomposo," is based on a gallant court?ing theme in G Major which is first heard in the orchestra and after a trumpet solo, by the soloists, in E Major. A transition based on the themes of the trumpet solo leads to the second theme, Alia Marcia and burlesco, also first introduced by the orchestra. The development is an energetic dialogue between the soloists and the orchestra, in which the two guitars are treated as a single instrument, with ample possibilities of tex?ture and timbre. In the final tutti, the princi?pal theme is played by the violins in octaves, accompanied by the soloists. Muted trum?pets and horns add color to the short coda.
The second movement, "Andante," is the emotional core of the work. It begins jf with an evocative melody in a minor that is presented in thirds by the soloists and passed on to the solo horn and flute section. An agitated transition leads to the second theme, which is rhythmic and decisive in character. The flutes usher in the recapitula?tion, in which the themes unfold in reverse order. In the conclusion, reminiscences of the main themes are heard over a sustained pedal tone. ..--?' ?
The "Rondo mexicano" is a brilliantly written piece for both the soloists and the orchestra, recalling a popular feast. The rondo theme, impertinente, is presented by solo trumpet in the style of a mariachi. The first episode introduces the theme by the soloists. After another tutti, the new passage presents an elegant secondary theme. All the themes are eventually tied together, with the use of castanets contributing to the finale's brilliance.

Heitor Villa-Lobos
Born March 5, 1887, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil Died November 17, 1959, in Rio de Janeiro
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere of Heitor Villa-Lobos's Uirapuru.
Stamping his controversies on everything he did, Villa-Lobos wrote his orchestral work Uirapuru with a purpose that clearly belonged to a period with which he was perfectly in tune. The score is dated 1917, but keeping in mind the composer's notoriety of changing the dates of his compositions, some data shows that it may have been written after the beginning of the 1930s. However, one point is unquestionable--the date of its premiere: May 25,1935 at the Colon Theater in Buenos Aires, conducted by Villa-Lobos himself.
Uirapuru recalls the decade of 1910, not only because of the creative imagination of the sounds, but because of the striking impact that compositions such as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring by the Russian composer Igor Stravinsky had on it. Moreover, the com?position shares similar traits as other works by Villa-Lobos, such as African Dances and the ballet Amazonas of 1916. It has a similar structure of interspersed sound groupings and musical sonority as Stravinsky; the cut-
ting sounds he detected in the work of a com?poser like Edgard Varese; or even the noc?turnal music by Bela Bartok; but all of this intermingled with elements that characterize Villa-Lobos himself--music that distinguishes his work from those of Mussorgsky, Debussy, Dukas, Ravel, Stravinsky, Varese and Bart6k.
We are always discussing the topic of nationalism in the music of Villa-Lobos, a ?.. nationalism laden with popular songs and rhythms of the Brazilian folklore. But listen?ing to Uirapuru, this is not the nationalism that comes to mind. It is the sound of Indian music, the sonority of the song of an imagi?nary bird, the sound of the depth of the forest that is present in all its complexity, giving the music a continuous change of color.
To outline his sound layers, the composer docs not hesitate to use the most diverse overlapping and juxtaposed timbres: the piano in the low tones, the flute and oboe playing repeated notes, a xylophone and immediately following, its amplification of a few mea?sures in the orchestral tutti, interrupted by percussion. Uirapuru demonstrates a constant interplay of creative imagination that culmi?nates with the introduction of a new musical instrument: the violin-phone. The violin-phone does not necessarily amplify the sound, but allows the clear and wide spectrum of the violin to become transformed and filtered, losing its character while enabling it to out-1 line a song that can be heard from afar. ?

Symphony No. 2 (Uirapuru)
M. Camargo Guarnieri ;
Born February 1, 1907 in Tieti, .'?
Sao Paulo, Brazil Died January 13,1993 in Sao Paulo
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere ofM. Camargo Guarnieri s :
Symphony No. 2.
Camargo Guarnieri was born the oldest child of a poor family that played music in their spare time. His parents, Miguel and Gcia flutist and pianist, respectively had eight more children. Camargo was the little "Mozart" of Miguel, who, when he perceived his son's great vocation, moved to the capital city to provide the best musical education for the boy who started to compose at a very early age. In the large city, Camargo concen?trated his main attention to the piano, until he met the Italian maestro Lamberto Baldi in 1927, with whom he studied composition e and conducting. As part of an environment where ideas on artists' commitments with both a Brazilian and universal art flourished, he looked for a new mode for his musical ideas: Camargo decided to stop using the name "Mozart," in full, primarily because he thought it was presumptuous and outdated for a 20th-century composer in the year of 1928. The "musical past" was kept in files, some pieces nicknamed "tabooed work"-?? a title that roused the scholars' curiosity-and he began to sign his name as "M. Camargo Guarnieri."
In the author's catalog there is another overture for orchestra, Festiva, and seven symphonies composed between 1944 and 1985. Symphony No. 2 was composed in 1945, achieving a second-place ranking prior to its premiere in the Competition for Symphonies of the Americas. Titled "Uirapuru," a bird from the Amazon Region: whose song inspired Villa-Lobos to write a choral work (1944) and a symphonic poem
(1917) with the same title (previously heard on tonight's program), Camargo's piece was dedicated to the Rio de Janeiro composer. Years later he composed another more explicit dedication, the Tribute to Villa-Lobos, in a work for wind instruments and percus?sion, written in 1966.
Symphony No. 2 is composed in three movements. The opening movement, "Energico," in sonata form, juxtaposes two themes, the first expressed by the strings and the second, by the French horns. The next movement begins with a solo by the English horn, a melody cleverly worked alongside the entire passage with the charac?ter of the central part contrasting with the extremes. In the finale, "Festivo," also in sonata form with two themes, the first theme is announced by the wind instruments and the second by the English horn. The entire cello section adds an additional third theme, a melody that recalls the memory of Villa-Lobos.

ince their childhood concerts in Brazil and their New York appear?ances as teenagers in 1969, the musical development of Sergio ; and Odair Assad has followed a ;__ fascinating path. Having taken as their base the traditional repertoire of the guitar duo which they refer to as the repertoire of the Presti-Lagoya duo, they started by adding to it the contributions of fellow Brazilians Radames Gnattali, Francisco Mignone, Heitor Villa Lobos, Egberto Gismonti, Marios Nobre, Wagner Tiso and Hermeto Pascoal.
At the beginning of the 1980s, Sergio and Odair Assad made a name for them?selves in Europe. Their amazing talent and their extraordinary musical personalities astounded and delighted their concert audi?ences. Among this group was Astor Piazzolla, captivated after hearing them play at the house of a mutual friend in Paris in 1983, who, shortly afterwards, dedicated three original tangos for two guitars to the brothers, the Tango Suite, which today is part of the guitar duo standard repertoire. During their exploration of the treasures of Baroque music, the two brothers took one hand each in the two-handed harpsichord pieces of Rameau, Scarlatti, Bach and Couperin. Over time, they have refined their skill of mixing musical styles, periods and cultures, even in the course of a single evening's concert. The Assad brothers have added to their repertoire not only the pieces written for them by Nikita Koshkin, Terry Riley and many others, but also a series of daring arrangements including Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
Various commissions and joint projects have widened the scope of the brothers' musical involvement. These projects include
the music of the Japanese film Notsu no Niwa, which Sergio was asked to write and the brothers recorded in 1994. The Assad brothers have collaborated with violinist Gidon Kremer and soprano Dawn Upshaw in 1996; cellist Yo-Yo Ma (a recording which recently received a Grammy) and violinist Fernando Suarez Paz in 1997; violinist Nadja Salerno Sonnenberg in 1998; and with vio?linist Iwao Furusawa in 1999.
Their dedicated work and their bound?less imagination have given Sergio and Odair international renown. Their duo is a "veritable phenomenon, which, with time to mature, will go down in history {Diapason)!'
Tonight's performance marks Sergio and Odair Assad's fourth appearance under UMS auspices. The duo made their UMS debut in November 1992 in Rackham Auditorium.

ohn Neschling took over as the orchestra's artistic director in January of 1997, assuming responsi?bility for restructuring it and install?ing it in the Sala Sao Paulo. This new challenge allowed the conductor to resume his musical work in Brazil without neglecting his international commitments.
In 1999, besides per?forming Mahler's Symphony No. 2 (Resurrection), a work that he chose for the grand opening of the Sala Sao Paulo, Mr. Neschling also con?ducted new presenta?tions of Alban Berg's Wozzeck and Puccini's Manon Lescaut, both at
the Massimo Theater, and Tosca, at the Carlo Felice Theater in Genoa. He also performed concerts with the Santa Cecilia Academy in Rome. He conducted a program dedicated to Richard Strauss with the Giuseppe Verdi Orchestra in Milan, and in May of 2000, he conducted the world's first performance of Andre Previn's most recent work, played by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. His last engagements included concerts with the Toronto Symphony, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and a production of Ernani in Naples.
Living in Europe since 1983, John Neschling built a solid career on the European Continent. He was the musical director of the Sao Carlos Theater in Lisbon, as well as the Artistic Director of the Saint Gallen Stadttheater, in Switzerland, and of the Massimo Theater in Palermo. He was also resident conductor of the Staatsopera in Vienna and of the Bordeaux-Aquitaine National Orchestra. Before moving to Europe, he had already conducted at the Sao Paulo and Rio de Janeiro Municipal Theaters in Brazil.
One of the high points in Maestro Neschling's career was his production of Carlos Gomes's Guarany. With Placido Domingo in the leading role, the production premiered at the Bonn Opera House in 1996. This same work also opened the 1997 season at the Washington Opera. Sony Classical released the recording of this work and BBC broadcast a documentary on its production. In 1998, Maestro Neschling conducted Donizetti's Adelia in Genoa, starring Mariella Devia. The live recording of this performance, at the Carlo Felice, was released under the BMGRicordi label. He has also composed the sound tracks for numerous Brazilian films, including Pixote (awarded at the Gramado Film Festival), The Kiss of the Spider Woman, Os Condenados (winner of the State Governor's Award), Lucio Fldvio and Gaijin. He was awarded the Order of Rio Branco from the Brazilian Government in 1997 for his artistic merits.
John Neschling was born in Rio de Janeiro, to Austrian parents.
These performances by Orquestra de Sao Paulo and Banda Mantiqueira mark John Neschling's UMS debut.
? o-Artistic Director of the Sao Paulo State Symphony of Brazil, young Brazilian conductor Roberto Minczuk has swiftly established himself as one of the most important emerging talents of his generation. After leading the New York Philharmonic's summer Concerts in the Parks series in 1998 he was immediately re-engaged to lead the same series in 1999, and continues an ongoing relationship with that orchestra today. Since 1998, he has been invited to conduct extensively in the North American orchestral scene, with highly successful appearances at the Houston Sym-
phony, Detroit Symphony, Seattle Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, Oregon Symphony, Vancouver Symphony, Florida Philharmonic and Pacific Symphony Orchestras. An avid educator of young musicians, he has also appeared twice as guest conductor of The Juilliard Orchestra at Lincoln Center. Upcoming appearances will include return visits to San Antonio, Colorado, Detroit and Indianapolis with major debuts at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, the Baltimore Symphony, the New Jersey Symphony and the Brooklyn Philharm-, onic during the 0203 concert season. Jr On the international circuit, Maestro Minczuk will also be conducting the Halle Orchestra of Manchester, the Basle Symphony Orchestra, the New Zealand
Symphony and the Budapest Symphony Orchestra. He embarks upon the first-ever concert production of Wagner's Ring Cycle in Sao Paulo with the : Sao Paulo State Symphony this coming summer, and leads the orchestra, along with Artistic Director John
Neschling, on the current three-week debut concert tour of the US.
Roberto Minczuk has won many presti?gious awards and prizes throughout his young career. At the recommendation of Kurt Masur, he received the 2000 Martin E. Segal Award as one of Lincoln Center's most promising young artists. Other awards include the 1997 Revelation of the Year Award given tp the most outstanding young artist by the.H Performing Arts Critics Association in Sao , Paulo, and the 1991 Moinho Santista Youth 1 Prize (the most important prize in Brazil) awarded in various disciplines for extraordi?nary achievement in a chosen field.
These performances by the Orquestra de Sao Paulo and Banda Mantiqueira mark Roberto Minczuk's UMS debut.
'he history of the Orquestra de Sao
Paulo can be divided into two peri?ods. The first, under the direction of Eleazar de Carvalho, began in 1972 _ and ended with the conductor's death in 1996. The second period began with John Neschling, who took over the orchestra in 1997, and has its own specific characteristics.
The orchestra was first organized in 1953 by Souza Lima, but until the beginning of the 1970s, it led an ephemeral life. The 24 years under the direction of Eleazar de Carvalho were a phase of great activity and prestige, with the orchestra playing in regu?lar, critically acclaimed concert seasons. In the early 1990s, however, the orchestra had fallen into a state of disorganization, had no set place to perform its concerts, and lacked the basic structure needed to schedule its seasons and implement new projects.
Sao Paulo is the third largest city in the world with a population of 11 million inhabitants and the financial reference of Latin America. At the same time, it is a center of excellence in scientific research and, with its 114 theaters and 68 museums, is the hub of Brazilian cultural life, holding important collections of Brazilian and inter?national art. It is also home to the country's most prestigious university.
When John Neschling took over as Artistic Director of the orchestra, he set j-down clear rules designed to make it a I model musical organization in Brazil and J-to include it in the international circuit. He wanted to build an orchestra that would be on a par with Sao Paulo's demands and possibilities.
In 1997, the orchestra underwent a ren?ovation. After a rigid selection process, its staff of regular musicians was re-evaluated,
and numerous young Brazilian and foreign musicians were hired who felt attracted by the greatness and potential of the project. Between 1997 and 1999, its concerts were performed in the Sao Pedro Theater, until the orchestra moved to its newly renovated headquarters in Sala Sao Paulo on July 9, 1999, the last and most important step in the re-building process.
Each year the orchestra prepares approximately 40 different programs, per?forming an average of 90 concerts in the Sala Sao Paulo and at venues in other Brazilian cities. The distinctive trademark of its profile is concern with its repertoire. Alongside benchmark pieces of Western music Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Haydn's The Creation, Britten's War Requiem, Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress, cycles of symphonies by Schumann, Shostakovich and Mahler approximately 20 works by Brazilian composers from the 18th century through the present are also selected for performance each season.
The orchestra's musicians have an important role in choosing each season's schedule and programs, working like soloists and players in chamber music groups. The list of guest musicians who have appeared with the orchestra include Kurt Masur, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Alain Lombard, Paavo Berglund, Theodor Guschlbauer, Djansug Kakhidze, Barbara Hendricks, Radovan Vlatkovic, Miriam _ Fried, Miklos Perenyi, Sergio and Odair Assad, Alex Klein, Natalia Gutman, Nelson Freire, Antonio Meneses, Julian Rachlin, Gerhard Oppitz, Vadim Gluzman, Melvyn Tan, Stephan Genz, and Stephen Kovacevich.
These performances mark Orquestra de Sao Paulo and Banda Mantiqueira's UMS debuts.

any Brazilians perceive Grupo Corpo as a national cultural treasure. This 27-year-old M dance company began as a " family project for the
Pederneiras siblings and their parents, who gave up their house to serve as Grupo Corpo's first headquarters. The entire family helped to get Grupo Corpo off the ground and remain involved in running the compa?ny and its 400-student school. Rodrigo Pederneiras is Artistic Director and " Choreographer, Paulo Artistic Director and' Lighting Designer, and Pedro the Technical Director. Miriam, formerly a company dancer, is now a choreographic assistant, and Jose Luiz is the company's photographer.
Grupo Corpo places particular empha?sis on collaboration. The creative core of this company Rodrigo, Paulo, Fernando Velloso (set design), and Freusa Zechmeister (costumes) have worked together since the company's conception. Together they take the raw material of 19 dancers and create works that yield an integrated visual specta?cle. Many choreographers change their : designers with each piece, and while this affords them the opportunity to try out new styles and design ideas, the process of deep-, ening the creative collaboration is lost. In ? Grupo Corpo, the artists draw on their long history of work together and deepen their commitment to the dance piece as a whole with each new collaboration. This process weaves an operatic dimension to each Grupo Corpo performance. Grupo Corpo frequently commissions work from Brazilian musicians, including Milton Nascimento and Arnaldo Antunes, among many others.
Classical ballet technique is the basis of Rodrigo Pederneiras's choreography, but Brazilian movements, from folk dances to street moves, peek through. This is not an ethnographic or folkloric dance company; ballet, modern, folk, and popular dances
fuse to become a unique dance phenome?non. Modern techniques and Brazilian ver?nacular dance bend classical movements to take on new lines and a new spirit. Mr. Pederneiras's choreography is then inter?preted by a group of dancers whose intense athleticism and propulsive energy are tem?pered by a quality of ease and looseness that suggest that no matter how challenging the choreography, they have plenty of energy in reserve.
The company is based in Belo Horizonte, a provincial capital of Brazil almost 300 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. Because it is far away from the Europeanized cities, Grupo Corpo has been free to develop a distinctly Brazilian movement style. In fact, the company presents work that explores all aspects of Brazilian cultural identity. The emphasis on rhythm in Grupo Corpo's work is seen as particularly Brazilian, and many guest composers employ sound ele?ments from regional Brazilian music as well as from Brazilian pop music. Ms. Zech-meister's costumes often quote Brazilian folk art and celebrate a tropical love of color. But these are fragments of Brazilian culture that are incorporated into the whole, which defies a nationalistic definition of its art, while remaining a national symbol of pride.
These performances mark Grupo Corpo's UMS debut.
. Rodrigo Pederneiras (Artistic Director and Choreographer) joined Grupo Corpo as a
: choreographer in 1978. Nearly a decade later, while working with the cutting-edge musical ensemble Uakti, he began to envision the visceral style of dance that has become his
1 trademark. Mr. Pederneiras's choreography blends the traditional Brazilian dances of
Ixaxado, samba, and capoeira with modern dance and ballet technique. His work has earned international recognition, and he has , choreographed for the Ballet do Theatro .Municipal do Rio de Janeiro, the Ballet do Teatro Guaira, the Ballet da Cidade de Sao Paulo and the Companhia de Danca de Minas Gerais, Deutsche Oper Berlin, y -? Gulbenkian, Les Ballets Jazz Montreal, Stadttheater Saint Gallen, and Opera du Rhin. His work for Grupo Corpo remains his primary interest, saying "Grupo Corpo j$ today has its own language, which is some?thing hard to achieve." If Grupo Corpo has a language of its own today, it is Rodrigo's language: it has his unmistakable accent, which speaks to our bodies and beckons us to dance.............
Paulo Pederneiras (Artistic Director and Founder), General and Artistic Director of the company, founded Grupo Corpo in 1975. Mr. Pederneiras is also responsible for the lighting of the ballets and has played an integral role in the creation of stage sets. .."I think of the space the same way I think of the lighting. Sometimes the light is the space." Besides his work with Grupo Corpo, Paulo has supervised lighting for several operas, including Don Giovanni, Suor Angelica, Lucia de Lammermoor, La Voix Humaine, Salome and Orfeo. He has also designed exhibits such as Indigenous and Anthropologic Art at the Brazil 500 Years Exhibit, held at the Oca in Ibirapuera Park, i Sao Paulo, 2000.
To Fernando Velloso (Costume and Set Designer), a set design is not a matter of ? self-expression, but the sum of various elements working to enhance the choreogra?phy. Mr. Velloso, who has a degree in archi?tecture, began working with Grupo Corpo in 1989, during the production Missa do Orfanato. Since 1992, he has served as Gropo Corpo's Program Coordinator. With over 30 years of experience, Fernando has created sets for numerous international productions, including 4? Encontro das Americas at Minas Centra (1997, Alluvium, Deutsche Oper) and Rede Globo Televisao's Uma Mulher Vestida de Sol in 1994. Mr. Velloso's work is infused with familiar themes of the Brazilian culture, and melds the choreography with the stage design. In O Corpo, Mr. Velloso focuses on the costumes, since in his own words, "the stage setting is the lighting effect, and the costumes are the stage setting."
The aim of Freusa Zechmeister (Costume Designer), who has worked with Grupo Corpo since 1981, is complementing Grupo Corpo's energetic choreography with color?ful designs that do not restrict body move?ment. In almost all of her costumes she uses a leotard as a "second skin" that reinforces the movements of Rodrigo Pederneiras's choreography. Since 1989, she has collabo?rated with the team of Rodrigo and Paulo ! Pederneiras and Fernando Velloso in a cre?ative capacity, designing and unifying the : elements of costuming, lighting, and set design in Grupo Corpo's productions. In addition to her work with Grupo Corpo, Ms. Zechmeister has created costumes and stage settings for operas such as Lucia de jj Lammemoor at the Teatro Municipal in Sao Paulo and the Sao Paulo City Ballet. She also works as an independent architect and inte?rior designer. _._..__..___ ?????'.

One evening Brahms was asked how he had spent the day. "I was working on my sym?phony," the composer replied. "In the morn; ing I added an eighth note. In the afternoon " I took it out."
Spurious as this anecdote may be, it does furnish some insight into the slow, careful _ way firahms fashioned his music and the ; difficulty he had in bringing certain works up to his incredibly high standards. The Piano Quintet is a particularly good illustration of a composition that underwent several major revisions before publication.
The original version was a string quintet for two violins, viola, and two cellos, which Brahms composed in 1862. Joseph Joachim,' the composer's close friend and trusted , musical advisor, liked the piece at first, but after rehearsing it, told Brahms that he though it lacked charm and that the com?poser should "mitigate the harshness of -; some passages." A slightly altered work was1 played at another rehearsal, but it too '; proved unsatisfactory.
The following year, Brahms entirely transformed the piece into a sonata for two pianos, which he performed with Karl Tausig in Vienna early in 1864. (Although Brahms burned the original cello quintet version, he preserved the two-piano realiza?tion, which is published as Op. 34b.) Critics, gave it a generally poor reception saying it_ lacked the necessary warmth and beauty that only string instruments could provide.
Finally, during the summer of 1864, Brahms reworked the same musical material once more, this time shaping it into its final piano quintet form. Brahms, at long last, was satisfied. He allowed it to be published in 1865. It is now considered the composer's most epic piece of chamber music.
The massive and complex first movement is replete with a superabundance of melodic strains and rhythms. Yet, despite this rich 'tor diversity, Brahms achieves a musical synthe?sis through the use of various unifying tech-niques that are skillfully woven into the music. To take but one example, the move?ment opens with piano, first violin, and _ cello singing the noble, sonorous first ) theme. After a pause, the piano begins a pas?sage of running notes that seems unrelated to the opening statement. Careful listening, though, reveals that the passage is nothing more than a free, speeded-up transposition of the melody we have just heard! Brahms' delight in counterpoising twos against threes is evident in the subdued second sub?ject, with its ostinato triplets underpinning the equal pairs of notes in the melody. A $jj closing theme that contrasts sustained, legato measures with staccato, rhythmic measures leads to a comparatively brief development, a recapitulation, and a coda that starts slowly and quietly but builds to a brilliant climax.
The slow movement is serene, tender, and simple--especially in comparison with the majestic sweep of what has come before. The opening subject, a warm, gently swaying melody, is played by the piano to a restrained,
rhythmical string accompaniment. The intensity increases as the second violin and viola, in unison, introduce the subsidiary subject. Clam returns as the main theme returns to close the movement.
The "Scherzo" has great rhythmic verve and a plenitude of melodic material. There are three basic musical ideas: an eerie, slightly off-beat melody over an insistent : cello pizzicato; a crisply rhythmic figure in the strings; and an exultant, full-voiced exclamatory statement from all five players. After expanding and developing these .;' "' themes, the music builds powerfully to a sudden cut-off, which is followed by the contrasting cantabile melody of the Trio Brahms then directs the players to repeat the Scherzo section.
The "Finale" opens with a slow intro?duction that casts a mood of dark forebod?ing. In a while the shadows disperse as the cello saunters forth with a fast, jolly tune. After a dramatic outburst, a second melody appears, slightly faster in tempo, but drooping with feigned sorrow. A vigorous, syncopated them brings the exposition to an end. The freely realized development and recapitulation lead to the coda, a summing up of the entire movement in an unrestrained whirl?wind of orchestral sonority.
The first public performance of the quintet was given in Paris on March 24, 1868, by pianist Louise Langhans-Japha , and four unidentified string players. '_

F he FORD HONORS PROGRAM is made possible by a generous grant from the Ford Motor Company Fund and benefits the UMS Education Program. Each year, UMS honors a world-renowned artist or ensemble with whom we have maintained a long-standing and significant relationship.

Van Cliburn was the first artist so honored, with subse-
quent honorees being Jessye Norman, Garrick Ohlsson, The Canadian Brass, Isaac Stern, Marcel Marceau, and Marilyn Home.

Scherza infida
George Frideric Handel
E vivo ancora E senza il ferro
Oh Dei!
Che faro Che mi dite,
O affanni miei
Scherza infida in grembo al dnido. Io tradito a morte in braccio Per tua colpa ora men vo. Ma a spezzar l'indegno laccio, Ombra mesta e spirto ignudo, Per tua pena io tornero. Scherza infida, etc.
Lasda ch'io pianga
Armida dispietata! Colla forza d'abisso Rapimmi al caro
Ciel di miei contenti, E qui con duoio eterno viva mi tieni
In tormentoso Inferno.
Signor! Ah! per pieta lasciami piangere.
Lascia ch'io pianga mia cruda sorte.
E che sospiri la liberta!
II duolo infranga queste ritorte
De' miei martiri, sol per pieta.
Am I still alive And without my sword
What shall I do What do you counsel,
In my anguish
Play, faithless one, in your lover's embrace.
Because of you I now go forth
Betrayed into the arms of death.
But to break this vile deceit
As a gloomy shade, a mere wraith,
I will return to punish you.
Play, faithless one, etc.
Pitiless Armida! With fiendish force You have abducted me from the blessed
Heaven, from my happiness, And here, in eternal pain, you hold me
alive, tormented in Hell.
Oh Lord, have pity, let me weep. Let me weep my cruel fate, And let me breathe freedom! Let sorrow break these chains Of my suffering, for pity's sake.
Beau Soir
Claude Debussy (Paul Bourget)
Lorsqu'au soleil couchant les rivieres
sont roses Et qu'un tiede frisson court sur
les champs de ble, Un conseil d'etre heureux semble sortir
des choses Et monter vers le coeur trouble.
Un conseil de gouter le charme d'etre au
monde, Cependant qu'on est jeune et que le soir
est beau, Car nous nous en allons comme s'en va
cette onde, Elle a la mer, nous au tombeau.
Vocalise en Forme de Habanera
Maurice Ravel
Le Colibri
Ernest Chausson (Leconte de Lisle)
Le vert colibri, le roi des collines, Voyant la rosee et le soleil dair, Luire dans son nid tisse d'herbes fines, Comme un frais rayon s'echappe dans l'air. II se hate et vole aux sources voisines, Oil les bambous font le bruit de la mer, Oil l'acoka rouge aux
odeurs divines S'ouvre et porte au coeur un humide
eclair. Vers la fleur doree, il descend,
se pose,
Et boit tant d'amour dans la coupe rose, Qu'il meurt, ne sachant s'il l'a
pu tarir!
Sur ta levre pure, 6 ma bien-aimee, Telle aussi mon ame eut voulu mourir, Du premier baiser qui l'a parfumee.
Beautiful Evening
When, in the setting sun, the streams
are rosy, And when a warm breeze floats over the
fields of grain, A counsel to be happy seems to emanate
from all things And rise toward the troubled heart;
An advice to enjoy the pleasure of being
alive While one is young and the evening is
beautiful, For we shall go as this
wave goes, -It, to the sea: we, to the grave.
The Humming Bird
The green humming bird, king of the hills, Seeing the dew and the bright sun Glitter on his nest, woven of fine grasses, Like a light breeze escapes into the air. He hurries and flies to the nearby springs, Where the reeds make the sound of the sea, Where the red hibiscus, with its
heavenly scent, Unfolds and brings a humid light to
the heart. Towards the golden flower he descends,
And drinks so much love from the rosy cup That he dies, not knowing if he could have
drained it!
On your pure lips, oh my beloved, My soul likewise would have wanted to die Of the first kiss, which has perfumed it.
En Sourdine
Gabriel Faure (Paul Verlaine)
Calmes dans le demi-jour Que les branches hautes font, Pen?trons bien notre amour De ce silence profond. Melons nos ames, nos coeurs Et nos sens extasies, Parmi les vagues langueurs Des pins et des arbousiers. Ferme tes yeux a demi, Croise tes bras sur ton sein, Et de ton coeur endormi Chasse a jamais tout dessein. Laissons-nous persuader Au souffle berceur et doux Qui vient, a tes pieds, rider Les ondes des gazons roux. Et quand, solennel, le soir Des chenes noirs tombera Voix de notre desespoir, Le rossignol chantera.
Emile Paladilhe (Pierre Corneille)
Je suis jaloux, Psyche, de toute la nature!
Les rayons du soleil vous baisent
! trop souvent,
[Vos cheveux soufrrent trop les caresses
du vent.
Quand il les flatte, j'en murmure! L'air meme que vous respirez Avec trop de plaisir passe sur
votre bouche.
Votre habit de trop pres vous touche! Votre habit de trop pres vous touche! Et shot que vous soupirez Je ne sais quoi
qui m'effarouche Craint, parmi vos soupirs,
des soupirs egares!
Serene in the twilight
Created by the high branches,
Let our love be imbued
With this profound silence.
Let us blend our souls, our hearts,
And our enraptured senses,
Amidst the faint languor
Of the pines and arbutus.
Half-close your eyes,
Cross your arms on your breast,
And from your weary heart
Drive away forever all plans.
Let us surrender
To the soft and rocking breath
Which comes to your feet and ripples
The waves of the russet lawn.
And when, solemnly, the night
Shall descend from the black oaks,
The voice of our despair,
The nightingale, shall sing.
I am jealous, Psyche, of all of nature! The rays of the sun kiss you
too often, Your hair suffers the caresses of
the wind too much,
And when the breeze touches you, I protest. The very air you breathe Passes over your mouth with
too much pleasure. Your gown touches you too closely! Your gown touches you too closely! And the moment you sigh, something
within me Fears that some of your sighs are meant
For someone else!
Ricky Ian Gordon (fane Kenyon)
I got out of bed on two strong legs.
It might have been otherwise.
I ate cereal, sweet milk, ripe, flawless peach.
It might have been otherwise.
I took the dog uphill to the birch wood.
All morning I did the work I love.
At noon I lay down with my mate.
It might have been otherwise.
We ate dinner together at a table with
silver candlesticks It might have been otherwise. I slept in a bed in a room with paintings
on the walls
And planned another day just like this day. But one day, I know it will be otherwise.
Let Evening Come
Gordon (Kenyon)
Let the light of late afternoon shine
through chinks in the barn, moving up the bales as the sun
moves down. Let the cricket take up chafing as a woman
takes up her needles and her yarn. Let evening come. Let dew collect on the hoe abandoned
in long grass. Let the stars appear and the moon disclose
her silver horn.
Let the fox go back to its sandy den. Let the wind die down. Let the shed go black inside. Let evening come. To the bottle in the ditch, to the scoop
in the oats, to air in the lung Let evening come.
Let it come, as it will, and don't be afraid. God does not leave us comfortless,
so let evening come. Let evening come.
IV Farruca
Joaquin Turina
(Ramon de Campoamor)
Esta tu imagen, que admiro, tan pegada a mi deseo, que si al espejo me miro, en vez de verme te veo. Ah!
No vengas, falso contento, llamando a mi corazon, pues traes en la ilusion envuelto el remordimiento. Ah!
Ah, marcho a la luz de la luna de su sombra tan en pos, que no hacen mas sombra que una siendo nuestros cuerpos dos.
Nani, Nani
Joaquin Rodrigo
(adapted by Victoria Kamhi)
Nani, nani, nani, Nani quere el hijo, el hijo de la madre, de chico se haga grande.
Ay, ay, durmite, mi alma, durmite, mi vida, que tu padre viene, con mucha alegria.
Ay, avrimex la puerta, avrimex mi dama, avrimex! que vengo muy cansado de arar las huertas.
Ay, la puerta yo vos avro, que venix cansado, y verex durmido al hijo en la cuna.
Your beloved image
So enslaves me
That when I gaze into the mirror
Tis yours alone I see.
Do not buoy up my hopes
With falsehoods which enslave my heart,
For remorse lurks
In illusions you awaken.
I wander alone in the moonlight, So closely pursued by your shadow That we make but one shadow Though there are two of us.
Nani, Nani
Nani, nani, nani, Nani wants my child, The son of his mother, Who will grow up one day.
Ah, sleep my love, sleep my life, In your cradle, For your father is coming, Bringing much joy.
Ah, open the door to me, open quickly my lady! Open to me! I am very tired from working in the fields.
Ah, I will open the door to you since you are tired. And you will see your son asleep in his cradle.
Rilke Songs
Peter Lieberson (Rainer Maria Rilke)
O ihr Zartlichen
O ihr Zartlichen, tretet zuweilen In den Atem, der euch nicht meint, Lafit ihn an euren Wangen sich teilen, Hinter euch zittert er, wieder vereint.
O ihr Seligen, o ihr Heilen, Die ihr der Anfang der Herzen scheint, Bogen der Pfeile und Ziele von Pfeilen, Ewiger gliinzt euer Lacheln verweint.
Ftirchtet euch nicht zu leiden, die Schwere, Gebt'sie zuriick an der Erde Gewicht; Schwer sind die Berge, schwer sind die Meere.
Selbst die als Kinder ihr pflanztet,
die Baume, Wurden zu schwer langst;
ihr triiget sie nicht. Aber die Lufte ... aber die Raume...
Atmen, du unsichtbares Gedicht!
Atmen, du unsichtbares Gedicht!
Immerfort um das eigene
Sein rein eingetauschter Weltraum.
In dem ich mich rhythmisch ereigne.
Einzige Welle, deren Allmahliches Meer ich bin; Sparsamstes du von alien mOglichen
Meeren, Raumgewinn.
O you tender ones
O you tender ones, walk now and then Into the breath that blows coldly past, Upon your cheeks let it tremble and part; Behind you it will tremble together again.
O you blessed ones, you who are whole, You who seem the beginning of hearts, Bows for the arrows and arrows' targets-Tear-bright, your lips more eternally smile.
Don't be afraid to suffer; return That heaviness to the earth's own weight; Heavy are the mountains, heavy the seas.
Even the small trees you planted
as children Have long since become too heavy;
you could not carry them now. But the winds...but the spaces...
Breathing: you invisible poem!
Breathing: you invisible poem! Complete interchange of our own essence with world-space. You counterweight in which I rhythmically happen.
Single wave-motion whose
gradual sea I am;
you, most inclusive of all our possible
space grown warm.
Wieviele von diesen Stellen der Raume
waren schon
Innen in mir Manche Winde Sind wie mein Sohn.
Erkennst du mich, Luft, du, voll noch einst
meiniger Orte Du, einmal glatte Rinde, Rundung und Blatt meiner Worte.
Wolle die Wandlung. O sei fur die
Flamme begeistert, drin sich ein Ding dir entzieht,
das mit Verwandlungen prunkt; jener entwerfende Geist, welcher
das Irdische meistert, liebt in dem Schwung der Figur
nichts wie den wendenden Punkt.
Was sich ins Bleiben verschliefit,
schon ists das Erstarrte; wahnt es sich sicher im Schutz des
unscheinbaren Grau's Warte, ein Hartestes warnt aus der
Feme das Harte. Wehe-: abwesender Hammer holt aus!
Wer sich als Quelle ergieSt, den erkennt die Erkennung;
und sic ftihrt ihn entziickt durch das heiter Geschafme,
das mit Anfang oft schliefit und mit Ende beginnt.
Jeder gltickliche Raum ist Kind oder
Enkel von Trennung, den die staunend durchgehn.
Und die verwandelte Daphne will, seit sie lorbeern ftihlt,
daG du dich wandelst in Wind.
How many regions in space have
already been
inside me. There are winds that seem like my wandering son.
Do you recognize me, air, full of places
I once absorbed You who were the smooth bark, roundness, and leaf of my words.
Will Transformation
Will transformation. Oh be
inspired for the flame in which a Thing disappears and bursts
into something else; the spirit of re-creation which masters
this earthly form loves most the pivoting point where you are
no longer yourself.
What tightens into survival
is already inert; how safe is it really in its
inconspicuous gray from far off a far greater hardness
warns what is hard, and the absent hammer is lifted high!
He who pours himself out like a stream is acknowledged at last by Knowledge;
and she leads him enchanted through the harmonious country
that finishes often with starting, and with ending begins.
Every fortunate space that the two of them pass through, astonished,
is a child or grandchild of parting. And the transfigured Daphne,
as she feels herself become laurel, wants you to change into wind.
Blumenmuskel, der der Anemone Wiesenmorgen nach und nach erschliefit, bis in ihren Schoofi das polyphone Licht der lauten Himmel sich ergiefit,
in den stillen BlUtenstern gespannter Muskel des unendlichen Empfangs, manchmal so von Fulle ubermannter, dafi der Ruhewink des Untergangs
kaum vermag die weitzuruckgeschnellten Blatterrander dir zuriickzugeben: du, EntschluG und Kraft von wieviel Wei ten!
Wir Gewaltsamen, wir wahren langer. Aber wann, in welchem aller Leben, sind wir endlich often und Empfanger
Stiller Freund
Stiller Freund der vielen Fernen, fuhle, Wie dein Atem noch den Raum vermehrt. Im Gebalk der finstern Glockenstuhle Lafi dich lauten. Das, was an dir zehrt,
Wird ein Starkes fiber
dieser Nahrung.
Geh in der Verwandlung aus und ein. Was ist deine leidendste
Erfahrung Ist dir Trinken bitter, werde Wein.
Sei in dieser Nacht aus ObermaG Zauberkraft am Kreuzweg deiner Sinne, Ihrer seltsamen Begegnung Sinn.
Und wenn dich das Irdische
Zu der stillen Erde sag: Ich rinne. Zu dem raschen Wasser sprich: Ich bin.
Flower-muscle that slowly opens back The anemone to another meadow-dawn; Until her womb can feel the polyphonic Light of the sonorous heavens pouring down;
Muscle of an infinite acceptance, Stretched within the silent blossom-star, At times so overpowered with abundance That sunset's signal for repose is barely
able to return your too far hurled back petals for the darkness to revive: You, strength and purpose of how many worlds!
We violent ones remain a little longer. Ah but when, in which of all our lives, Shall we at last be open and receivers.
Silent Friend
Silent friend of many distances, feel How your breath enlarges all of space. Let your presence ring out like a bell Into the night. What feeds upon your face
Grows mighty from the
nourishment thus offered. Move through transformation, out and in. What is the deepest loss that you have
suffered If drinking is bitter, change yourself to wine.
In this immeasurable darkness, be the power That rounds your senses in their magic ring, The sense of their mysterious encounter.
And if the earthly no longer knows
your name,
Whisper to the silent earth: I'm flowing. To the flashing water say: I am.
