FROM THE UM PRESIDENT
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 cappella 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
FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT
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 2003 Winter Season events beginning on p. 29 of the glossy pages of this program
and on our website at www.ums.org.
We welcome UM President Mary Sue Coleman to the southeast Michigan community 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 com?missioned by Hancher. This unprecedented level of support of creative artists by a uni?versity presenting organization captured the attention of the performing arts field world?wide 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 extraordinary level of UM sup?port for the second residency of the Royal Shakespeare Company March 1-16 and of eight other UMS 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 successful 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 outstanding venues in Detroit, Ypsilanti, and Ann Arbor. You won't want to miss 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.
Yes, things are 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 last year. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
LETTER FROM THE CHAIR
As I start my tenure as Chair of the Board of Directors of the University Musical Society, I am honored to serve an organization that brings rich and exciting cultural offerings to the University, to Ann Arbor, and to the larger community of southeastern Michigan. Where, outside of a major metropolis, could one have the opportunity to attend such a wide variety of events as Hubbard Street Dance, Medea, Tamango and Urban Tap, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Bill T. Jones in a single academic year When my husband Ami and I first considered moving from Boston to the Midwest, UMS was an important part of our decision. The cultural life of Ann Arbor -it seemed to us then and continues to us now -is vital and accessible, equal only to major cities in the US. Many others share these same feelings. UMS remains one of our best recruiting tools, attracting people from all over the world to our community by bring?ing the most distinguished performing artists to our doorsteps. (Of course, this year, one of our "doorsteps" is temporarily fenced in and surrounded by a big hole!) Through UMS offerings we educate ourselves, enjoy ourselves and come to a fuller understanding of different cultures.
Of course, we could not possibly accomplish our goals of arts presen?tation, audience education and creation of new works without the generosity of UMS donors -individuals, corporations, philanthropic foundations, and government agencies. We are very grateful for the support they provide for our paigrams.
We look forward to continuing to present the best performing artists in the world to you each season, and we hope to see you at many perform?ances this winter.

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 124 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.
UMS CHORAL UNION
Throughout its 124-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 subscription 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 opened its current 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 presented its 124th series of annual performances of Messiah, using the rarely-heard Mozart revision of Handel's great work in Michigan Theater. The Choral Union's season will conclude in March with a pair of magnificent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accom?panied 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 performance 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 capable 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 the?atre 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 choralunion@ umich.edu or call 734.763.8997.

Ann Arbor Venues
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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 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 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, cap?ping 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 current 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.

Dear WMS Matrons,
(Tiiank you for attending this UMS performance. We appreciate your J. support of the performing arts and hope your experience at this concert will persuade you to attend more of our programs this season.
Having been involved in administration and finance for most of my career, the last 13 years with the performing arts, I can't help but think back to the number of times over that period I have heard people voice the per?ception that the arts are not managed as adeptly as other types of business.
Working in the administrative office of UMS, I have had the privilege of working with an excellent staff who are committed to being wise stewards of the resources available to UMS, constantly striving to create an experience for the patrons which will enrich and hopefully change their life in some small way.
In just the past year, for instance, we have revisited the UMS mission and vision by developing a new strategic plan, have created a new Long Range Financial Planning Group to help ensure financial stability in the coming years, established an Audit Committee to review and strengthen internal control, and perhaps most importantly, have taken many steps to improve the administrative structure and working conditions for UMS staff.
We have worked hard to make sure that our adminis?trative support and structure are held to the same high standards as our artistic product. This would include a commitment to diversity in our administrative practices by
valuing people in all facets: age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, reli?gion, and abilitydisability.
We are an inclusive, tolerant, and learning organization that believes in EINO: "Everybody In, Nobody Out." We have a special opportunity to help foster greater understanding and appreciation of all people through the diverse cultural expressions we bring to the stage and explore in our educa?tional programs.
This season has presented some challenges for UMS with the closing of Hill Auditorium for restoration and renovation, as well as continued fallout in the marketplace from the events surrounding 911. With your continued love and support for the arts, we know we will overcome these difficulties.

"Egberto Gismonti's music...invoke[s] in turn the techniques of Segovia, Sabicas, and even Jimi Hendrix, all presided over by the benign ghost ofVilla-Lobos."
The Times (London)
Over the last 25 years, the music of Egberto Gismonti has led to a land of uncommon breadth and beauty, establishing him as Brazil's greatest guitarist and one of the world's preeminent musicians. Drawing on the resources of the "primitive" and the "sophisticated," his work tends to resemble the dual world of Brazil ever growing and changing.
The son of a Lebanese father and Sicilian mother, Mr. Gismonti was born in the small Brazilian town of Carmo. A pianist by train?ing, Mr. GismontTs deep appreciation and love of his land and heritage came as a result of leaving Brazil. Moving to Paris, he studied with the famous teacher, conductor and composer Nadia Boulanger, and it was at her urging that he returned to his homeland to explore the resident culture of the Choros, the samba school and the Xingu Indians, while fashioning a distinctive and fascinating sound of his own. His music toes the line between folklore, classical and jazz, creating an unmistakable style and sound that repre?sent the dualities that exist in Brazil today. Mr. Gismonti s long association with EGM Records began in 1976, when he recorded the acclaimed Danfa das Cabefas, with fellow Brazilian percussionist Nana Y'aseoneelas a connection re-cemented in
1985 with Dims Vozes. Subsequent projects have taken him into collaborations with Jan Garbarek, Collin Walcott and Charlie Haden, with whom he recorded Folk Songs, garner?ing him much praise. In 1981, he released Sanfona, with his group Academia de Danas, as well as a solo album, later moving to what is regarded as one of his greatest recordings, ZigZag.
Inspired by the work of Villa-Lobos, Mr. Gismonti's work has proven to be both far-reaching and visceral, a living mosaic of 20th-century impulses, understandable in all languages.
Tonights performance marks Egberto Gismonti's UMS debut and his only US concert appearance this season.

Vienna: Lusthaus (revisited),
like a dream, explores the unconscious
world of Vienna
at the beginning of the twentieth century -in music and movement and texts -fragments of a lost, shattered world, taken from the paintings of Egon Schiele
and Gustav Klimt,
from the casebooks of Sigmund Freud, from the dreams of his patients, from letters and journals and diaries: the unconscious world from which our
tormented, waking world springs eternally.
Martha Clarke wishes to dedicate this production to George Clarke, Lyn Austin, and Inge Morath.
A Note on the Text: This piece was composed with the dramaturgical collaboration of Tom Damrauer. Some of the texts for the piece were taken from, or inspired by, Peter Altenberg, Sigmund Freud, Sander Gilman, Christy Honigman, the letters and diaries of the Imperial family, Richard von Krafft-Ebing, Georg Markus, and Diana Wolkstein.
Musical quotes from J. Strauss, Berg, and Bach.

The first Vienna: Lusthaus, directed by Martha Clarke, played at the Public Theater in New York; the Kennedy Center in Washington; and in Venice, Vienna, Paris, and a number of other cities in Europe. It won the Obie for "Best Play" for 1986. Consisting of 32 scenes, approximately half of them word?less, this dancetheater work creates a dream-scape of movement, monologues, and music that evokes the decadence and despair of turn-of-the-century Vienna. Approximately one-third of the show has been reworked, thus earning the addition of the word "revisited" to the original title. The work takes place in a pre-Hitler world filled with lush eroticism, decadence, and neurosis, a setting that prompted New York Times critic Frank Rich to suggest that Clarke had "tapped into everyone's wildest dreams."
Clarke's work has often been inspired by the visual arts. In 1984, she staged a work drawn from Heironymus Bosch's famously grotesque yet whimsical triptych, "The Garden of Earthly Delights." The visual inspiration for Vienna: Lusthaus comes from the paintings of Viennese artists Gustav Klimt and Egon Schiele, whose works evoke the decadence of fin de siecle Europe. Many scenes have visual "quotations" from the painters' works. Clarke's treatment of the nude figure echoes the confrontational sexuality in Schiele's portraits and the tor?mented spirits in many of Klimt's paintings, who seem haunted rather than fulfilled by sexuality.
The 1986 breakthrough of the original production of Vienna: Lusthaus helped to launch playwright Charles Mee's career. It was one of his first major works for the the?ater, and it established his unapologetic method of cultural appropriation, which he has taken to highly successful levels in his subsequent works. Some of the texts for Vienna: Lusthaus are taken verbatim from writers of the period, among them Sigmund
Freud and Richard von Krafft-Ebing, while others consist of Mee's adaptations of texts in combination with his own original words. Mee is inspired by the collage tech?nique of Robert Rauschenberg (who is the subject of one of his plays, bobrauschen-bergamerica) and considers the texts, which he openly refers to as "stolen," as his version of the found object. Mee says:
I like plays that are not too neat, too finished, too presentable. My plays are broken, jagged, filled with sharp edges, filled with things that take sudden turns, careen into each other, smash up, veer off in sickening turns. That feels good to me. It feels like my life. It feels like the world.
Vienna: Lusthaus (revisited) exhibits a fascination with dressing and undressing, revealing, exposing, and hiding on both a physical and emotional level. The prevalent themes of love and death are reflected in the costumes -women in underwear, dressed for love, and men in soldiers' uniforms, dressed for death. Clarke says:
I often bring the clothing of the period on the first day of rehearsal. It affects the physicality of the work... Every ele?ment in my work is interdependent: you can't take the dance steps away from the way you move in the cloth; and you can't take the light away from the fade of a phrase of music. I see it as a kind of architecture in which these pieces are brought together.
In one movement-dominated scene, a man carries a woman on the stage as though she were a piece of luggage or an oversized doll. Though he fondles her, she is utterly unresponsive to him. There is abundant emphasis in this piece on the modern devel?opment of the alienated individual, who is self-absorbed and unaware of the surround?ing world. The actors employ a proclama?tion style of monologue delivery, and the other performers ignore the speakers when
they talk. Often the speaker in a scene remains perfectly still while others circulate around the stage. The incredibly versatile performers share physical stage space with each other, but even when engaged in acts of startling eroticism and intimacy, they are trapped by their psychic isolation. In one scene, a man and a woman repeat the same speech, though they do so slightly out of sync. The speech has erotic references that take on a different meaning when spoken by the man or woman. The echoing of the words, combined with the total lack of con?sciousness of the other speaker, creates a disturbing, lonely tableau.
While the piece quotes from the expected cultural sources, Clarke and Mee also take pleasure in deconstructing the more overt markers of the period. In one scene, an actress disrobes as she describes her eccentric aunt whose obsessions with her body required veal face masks and baths of warm oil. The delicate harp music throughout this scene makes it seem charmingly eccentric, until the actress snaps at the harpist to "stop that"; it is as though she knows that harp music makes it all too quaint. The same actress later chants a litany of the luxury items of the period that she despises:
I don't like Johann Strauss. I don't like tropical flowers. I don't like mother of pearl. I don't like ivory tortoise shell. I don't like green silk. I don't like Venetian glass. I don't like to have my initials
embroidered on the edge of my
This focus on the minutiae of life at the dawn of a new century is balanced by the incipient sense of doom, with the prospect of world wars looming on the horizon. Clarke and Mee punctuate many scenes with military marching, including a comic pair of soldiers who continue to march like automatons even when lying on their backs.
The more somber side of military culture ends the work with the questions of a dying soldier. He lies still on the stage, asking questions of an impassive bystander about the decomposition of his own body. The soldier asks, "What colors does a body pass through after death" He is answered with a disturbingly dispassionate description: "Light pink, red, light blue, dark blue, purple-red." This last scene takes place in a gentle snowfall that provides a quiet chill of finality to the images of decadence and despair, which continue to haunt the audience well beyond the stretch of the work.

String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 76, No. 4
Franz Joseph Haydn
Born March 31, 1732 in Rohrau, Austria
Died May 31, 1809 in Vienna
In the view of many, Op. 76, No. 4 is the finest among Haydn's 83 quartets. Rarely, if ever, did he equal its luminous spirituality and depth of feeling. Perhaps Haydn intend?ed this quartet, with its prominent viola part, for his own use, since he was also an avid quartet violist.
The nickname, "Sunrise," widely accept?ed in the US and England but seldom used elsewhere, comes from the very opening of the quartet, where the first violin traces a loving curve of ascent above a soft sustained chord, much as the sun gloriously rises to bathe the earth in its radiance. There are two more motifs in the first group: one stated by the viola amidst long held notes in the violins and cello; the other, a repeated rhythmic figure combined with running six?teenth-note passages. The second subject starts with the cello playing what is essentially a mirror image descending instead of ascending of the first subject opening. It continues with an outgrowth of the first subject's last motif. The concluding theme of the exposition is a witty interplay of notes on and off the beat. Although the remainder of the movement can be divided into the customary development, recapitula?tion, and coda, Haydn creates such a strong feeling of inner cohesion that the overall musical effect is one of sustained, unified flow.
The second movement is one of the slowest and most morose of all Haydn adagios. Not conforming to any standard structural organization, it is best described as a free fantasia on the opening five-note motif. Uniformly soft, with only occasional
accents, the movement provides little solace and ends in bleak despair.
After two such strong movements, the unsophisticated peasant charm of the "Menuetto" offers a welcome respite. With great rhythmic verve, Haydn builds this entire section on the opening motif. The trio that comes in the middle apparently also has its origin in folk music, but the out?look is not nearly so sunny and cheerful. Over a sustained drone in the viola and cello, the violins play the rather oppressive melody with its heavy accents. The "Menuetto" returns at the end of the trio.
The "Finale" is written in the carefree style of Haydn's earlier quartets. The melody is believed to be an adaptation of an English folk song, perhaps one he heard on his trip to London. Organized in three-part form, the middle section is in minor, but with no lessening of its overriding vivacity. To heighten the movement's exhilaration and good humor, Haydn marks the coda (which is a technical minefield for the players) Piii allegro, or "faster," and then Piu presto, "faster yet," for a thrilling conclusion.

Eight Colors for String Quartet
Born August 18, 1957 in Simao, Hunan Province, China
Eight Colors for String Quartet was the first piece I wrote after coming to New York in 1986. It shares the dark, ritualized singing, very dramatic form, and attention to tone color and dynamics with pieces written in China, such as On Taoism (for orchestra, voice, bass clarinet and contrabassoon), but still is very different from them. This string
quartet (together with In Distance and Silk Road) marks the period of my first contact with the concentrated, lyrical language of western atonality. From it, I learned how to handle repetition, but otherwise responded in my own way, out of my own culture, not following the Second Viennese School. I drew on Chinese colors, on the techniques of Peking Opera familiar to me since childhood. The work consists of eight very short sections, almost like a set of brush paintings, through which materials are shared and developed. The subjects are described by the eight interrelated titles, and form a drama, a kind of ritual performance structure. Not only timbre, but the actual string techniques are developed from Peking Opera; the vocalization of Opera actresses and Buddhist chanting can be heard. Although a shadow of atonal pitch organi?zation remains in some sections of this piece, I began to find a way to mingle old materials from my culture with the new, to contribute something to the western idea of atonality, and to refresh it. I found a danger in later atonal writing to be that it is too easy to leave yourself out of the music. I wanted to find ways to remain open to my culture, and to open myself.

String Quartet No. 4, "Silent Temple"
Born Decembers, 1955 in Shanghai, China
In the early 1970s, I visited an abandoned Buddhist temple in northwest China. As all religious activities were completely forbid?den at the time of the Cultural Revolution (1966-1976), the temple, renowned among the Buddhist community all over the world,
was unattended and on the brim of turning into a ruin.
The most striking and powerful memory I had from the visit was that, in spite of the appalling condition of the temple, it was still a grandiose and magnificent structure. And the fact it was located in the snowy moun?tainous ranges added to its dignity and glory. Standing in the middle of the courtyard I could almost hear the praying and the chanting of the monks, as well as the violence committed to the temple and the monks by the "Red Guards."
To this day, the memories of the visit remain vivid. And I use them almost ran?domly as the basic images of the composi?tion. As a result, the work has four short and seemingly unrelated ideas, which are performed without pause.
String Quartet No. 4, "Silent Temple," was jointly commissioned for the Shanghai Quartet by Freer and Shackler Galleries of the Smithsonian Institution and the University of Richmond, Virginia. It is dedicated to the Shanghai Quartet.

Shuo for String Quartet
Born April 4, 1953 in Guangzhou, China
I express my feelings through my music, which combines Chinese and Western musi?cal materials and media. The inspirations and ideas behind the pieces are mostly Chinese. But the instrumentations of the pieces usually come from the musicians in America who commission them.
Shuo is written for string orchestra or string quartet. The word Shuo in Chinese means "initiate." It represents the first day of every month in the lunar calendar. In my
piece Shuo, I applied initial materials taken from Chinese folk music in terms of tunes and mountain song-singing gestures and developed them for string instruments. The pentatonic lines are woven vividly in different layers to paint a delicate oriental landscape.
Based on the first movement of my 1982 string quartet, the work was commis?sioned by the San Jose Orchestra (directed by Barbara Day Turner), for the opening concert of its 199495 season, and is dedicated to Professor Wu Zu-Qiang, my composition teacher at the Central Conservatory of Music in Beijing, who brought me into the profes?sional composition field and guided me to find my own voice in new music creation.

Quartet in C Major, Op. 61
Born September 8, 1841 in Miihlhausen,
Czech Republic Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
Antonin Dvorak possessed a natural affinity for chamber music. As a youngster, he was given instruction in violin and encouraged to play in local churches and the village band. In 1857, he began the traditional course of studies in church music at the Prague Organ School. At the time of his graduation, with a second prize, Dvorak had gained proficiency as a violist and employ?ment in small restaurant bands and theater orchestras. Dvorak never studied composi?tion at the Organ School; being self-taught in this regard he once said: "I study with the birds, flowers, God, and myself." Like several composers, such as his English counterpart Edward Elgar (who once played in a band at a lunatic asylum), he mastered the endless complexities of orchestration and acquired useful knowledge of musical works for the
stage through his practical experiences as an ensemble instrumentalist.
During the 1860s, Dvorak served as principal violist in the Provisional Theatre Orchestra of Prague, where he discovered the works of Wagner and Smetana. His ear?liest compositions, which began to appear in the early 1860s, include two symphonies, a cello concerto, and two chamber pieces for strings. Between 1862 and 1895 Dvorak completed 15 works for string quartet, including a collection of short pieces called Cypresses after poems by Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky. The most popular of these works were written late in the composer's career, such as Op. 96, inspired by a vacation in the Czech settlement in Spillville, Iowa, and Op. 105-6, completed in Czechoslovakia.
In the quartets of the 1870s, and in works like the Symphony No. 5 in F Major and the famous Serenade in E Major, Dvorak defined and mastered the essential elements of his nationalistic musical style. Through the efforts of Johannes Brahms and Eduard Hanslick, his music found large audiences in music centers throughout the world. In addition to the well-known works inspired by Slavonic elements, such as the Quartet, Op. 51, the Slavonic Dances, Op. 46 and Rhapsodies, Op. 45, his compositional activities expanded to include opera and choral music.
In the midst of his work for the opera Dimitrij in autumn, 1881, Dvorak produced the Quartet in C Major, Op. 61 for the Kapellmeister Joseph Hellmesberger, Sr. On November 5 he wrote to his friend Gobel:
When are you coming For I am already becoming impatient. I am very busy. I had to postpone work on the opera. I read in the newspaper that on December 15th, Hellmesberger will play my new quartet, which still doesn't exist! What could 1 do but leave the opera and write the quartet. I already have three movements prepared and
am working on the Finale. I must also orchestrate the Legends. As you see I am very busy...
Although the work was complete by November 10, it was not performed until one year later by the Joachim Quartet in Berlin.
Work on the Quartet in C Major, Op. 61 began with a movement in F Major writ?ten in early October, 1881. However, this piece was rejected, and Dvorak began anew on October 25. The final score, written in anticipation of a sophisticated Viennese audience, is one of the composer's best efforts. To avoid criticism, the fresh folk-like melodies and Czech dance rhythms, which lie at the heart of Dvorak's style, are used sparingly in the trio of the "Scherzo" and in the "Finale." The "Poco adagio" originated as part of an earlier sonata for violin and con?tains only a few changes of harmony and texture, such as the flowing accompaniment of triplets in the viola and cello line made from a simple progression of chords. The first and last movements are based on con?ventional sonata-allegro and sonata-rondo forms, respectively. The former demon?strates the composer's imaginative use of tonality, with a bold foray into the unusual region of E-flat Major, and the latter verifies his incomparable gift for concocting melodies and rhythms of irresistible charm and gaiety.

ow in its second decade, the Ying Quartet continues to develop ways of making artistic and cre?ative expression an essential part of everyday life. Their current projects in this direction include an innova?tive visiting residency at Symphony Space in New York City, linking music with poetry; a ?project with Da Camera of Houston to bring chamber music into the lives of Houston's working people and an explo?ration, on tour, with the Turtle Island String Quartet of jazz, improvisation and the clas?sical string quartet tradition.
Natives of Chicago, the Ying siblings began their career as an ensemble in 1992 in the farm town of Jesup, Iowa (population 2000) as the first recipients of a National Endowment for the Arts grant to support chamber music in rural America. The Quartet participated in the community, performing on countless occasions for audi?ences of six to 600 people in a residency so successful that it was widely chronicled in both the national and international media, including features in the New York Times, STRAD Magazine and on CBS Sunday Morning.
While the Quartet was in Jesup, its exceptional musical qualities earned it the 1993 Naumburg Chamber Music Award. In the years since, the Yings have established an international reputation for excellence in performance with appearances in virtually every major US city; at numerous festivals including Tanglewood, Aspen and San Miguel; and in Europe, Canada, Mexico, Australia, Japan and Taiwan. The Yings's enthusiasm for performing in diverse set?tings has led to concerts in Carnegie Hall, the White House, hospitals and juvenile prisons. Frequent musical collaborations have included such artists as Menahem Pressler, Paul Katz, Gilbert Kalish, Jon Nakamatsu, and the St. Lawrence Quartet.
In 1999, the Quartet introduced LifeMusic, a multi-year commissioning pro?ject supported by the Institute for American Music designed to produce a distinctively American string quartet repertoire. A pair of works each season, by established and emerging composers, is featured in the Yings's diverse performance activities. Participating composers thus far include Michael Torke, Kevin Puts, Carter Pann, Paquito D'Rivera, Daniel Kellogg, Augusta Read Thomas, Bernard Rands, and Ned Rorem.
As Quartet-in-Residence at the East?man School of Music of the University of Rochester, the Ying Quartet plans and directs a rigorous, sequential chamber music cur?riculum that integrates intensive musical instruction with training in creative presen?tation and communication skills and includes practical performance opportunities through?out the greater Rochester community. The
Quartet has also taught at Northwestern University and at the Interlochen and Brevard Music Festivals, and since 2001, has been visiting Resident Quartet at Harvard University.
The Ying Quartet can be found online at www.ying4.com.
This afternoon's performance marks the Ying Quartet's UMS debut.

EDUCATION & AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT
Considered one of the top performing arts educational programs in the country, UMS strives to illuminate the performing arts through education and community engagement, offering audiences a multitude of opportunities to make connections and deepen their understanding of the arts.
UMS Community Education Program
The following activities enlighten and inform audiences about the artists, art forms, ideas, and cultures presented by UMS. Details about specific 0203 educational activities will be announced closer to each event. For more information about adult education or community events, please visit the website at www.ums.org, email email@example.com, or call 734.647.6712.
These interviews engage the leading art-makers of our time in conversations about their body of work, their upcoming performance, and the process of creating work for the world stage.
Master classes are unique opportunities to see, hear, and feel the creation of an art form. Through participation andor observation, individuals gain insight into the process of art making and training.
Led by local experts and educators, UMS Study Clubs offer audiences the opportunity to gain deeper understanding of a particular text, artist, or art form. The study clubs are designed to give a greater appreciation of a specific subject matter within the context of the performance.
This series is designed for seasoned concert-goers as well as new audiences. Each "primer" is designed to build and deepen basic under?standing about a particular art form.
PREPs and Lectures
Pre-performance talks (PREPs) and lectures prepare audiences for upcoming performances.
Meet the Artists
Immediately following many performances, UMS engages the artist and audience in conversation about the themes and meanings within the performance, as well as the creative process.
A series of events focused on a theme, culture, art form, or artist that may include master classes, films, panels and community engage?ment events. 20022003 Immersions include Abbey Theatre of Ireland: Euripides' Medea and Brazilian Dance and Music.
Many artists remain in Michigan beyond their performances for short periods of time to deepen the connection to communities throughout the region. Artists teach, create, and meet with community groups, university units, and schools while in residence. For the 0203 season, major residencies include the Bolshoi Ballet, Sekou Sundiata, and the Royal Shakespeare Company.

Ich wollt, meine Lieb' ergosse sich, No. 1 (Heinrich Heine)
Ich wollt, meine Lieb' ergosse sich all
ill ein einzig Wort, Das gab ich den luft'gen Winden,
die trugen es lustig fort.
Sie tragen zu dir, Geliebte,
das lieberfullte Wort; Du hoerst es zu jeder Stunde,
du horst es an jedem Ort.
Und du hast zurn nachtlichen Schlummer
geschlossen die Augen k.iiiin. So wird dich mein Bild dich verfolgen,
bis in den tiefeten Trauin.
I Want to Pour Out All My Love, No. 1
I want to pour out all my love to you
in just one word, Which 1 would give to the eager breezes
to carry it forth.
They would bring it to you, Beloved,
this word full oflove; You would hear it every hour,
in every place.
And when you had scarcely closed your eyes
in nocturnal slumber, My picture would follow you
in your deepest dream.
Abscliiedslied der Zugvogel, No. 2 (August Heinrich Hoffmann von Fallersleben)
Wie war so schon doch Wald und Feld!
Wie ist so traurig jetzt die Welt! Min ist die schone Sommerzeit
und nach der Freude kam das Leid.
Wir wufiten nichts von Ungemach, wir safien unterm Laubesdach
Vergnilgt und froh beim Sonneiischein, und sangen in die Welt hinein.
Wir armen Voglein trauern sehr, wir haben keine Ileimat mehr,
Wir miiSen jetzt von hinnen flielin, und in die weite Fremde ziehn!
Farewell Song of the Birds of Passage, No. 2
How beautiful it was in wood and field!
How sad the world is now! Gone is the lovely summertime,
and after joy came sorrow.
We knew nothing of grief,
we sat in the shelter of the grove
Pleasant and happy in the sunshine, we sang out into the world.
We poor birds mourn so,
for we have no longer any home,
We must now flee from her
and drift through the wide aJien world!
Volkslied ("O wert thou in the cauld blast"), No. 5 (Ferdinand Freiligrath)
O wert thou in the cauld blast on yonder lea, My plaidie to the angry airt I'd shelter thee. Or did misfortune's bitter storms around thce blavv, Thy bield should be my bosom to share it a'.
Or were I in the wildest waste, sae black and bare, The desert were a paradise if thou were there. Or were I monarch of the globe with thee to reign, The brightest jewel in my crown wad be my queen.
Maiglockchen und die Blumelein, No. 6 (Hoffman von Fallersleben)
Maiglftckchen lautet in dem Tlial,
das klingt so hell und fein: "So kommt zum Reigen aJlzumal,
ihrlieben Blumelein!" Die Blumchen, blau und gelb und weiG,
die kommen all herbei, VergiBmeinnicht und Ehrenpreis und
Veilchen sind dabei.
Maiglockchen spielt zum Tanz im Nu
und aJle tanzen dann; Der Mond sieht ihnen freundlich zu,
hat seine Freude dran. Den Junker Reif verdroG das sehr,
er kommt in's Thai hinein, Maiglockchen spielt zum Tanz nicht mehr,
fort sind die Bliimelein.
Doch kaum der Reif das Thai verla'Gt,
da rufet wieder schnell Maiglockchen ai dem Friihlingsfest und
lautet doppelt hell. Nun halt's auch mich nicht mehr zu Haus,
Maiglockchen ruft auch mich; Die Blumchen gehn zum Tanz hinaus,
zum Tanze geh auch ich.
Maybells and the Little Flowers, No. 6
The maybell rings in the valley,
it resounds so brightly and delicately: "Come on, everyone to the dance,
you lovely blossoms'" Flowers, blue, yellow and white,
they all come, Forgetmenots and violets
are there too.
The maybell plays a merry tune
and everyone dances; The moon looks down friendly,
and is overjoyed to see them. But this irritated Jack Frost so,
he came down into the valley, The maybell plays no more,
and the blossoms are gone.
But as soon as frost left the valley,
quickly called again The maybell to the host of spring and
resounded doubly bright. Now even I cannot stay at home,
the maybell is calling me too; And if the blossoms are going to the dance,
I will go also.
Hans Werner Henzc (Arthur Rimbaud)
Dcvant une neige un ?tre
de Beaute de haute taille. Des sitTlements de mort et des cercles
sourde font inonter, s'elargir et trembler cornme un spectre ce corps adore: des
biessures ecarlates et noires eclatent dans
les chaires superbes. Les couleuis propres de la vie se foncent,
dansent, et se degagent autour de la Vision, sur le chantier. Et les frissons s'elevent et grondent, el la
saveur forcenee de ces effets se
chaigeant avec les sifQements mortels et les rauques
musiques que le monde, loin derriere nous, lance sur notre mere
de beaute, elle recule, elle se dresse. Oh! nos os sont revetus d'un nouveau
0 la face cendree, l'ecusson de crin,
les bras de cristal! Le canon sur lequel je dois m'abbatre a
travers la melee des arbres et de Fair leger!
Against a background of snow,
a tall Being of Beauty. Death's wheezing and circles of muffled
this adored body to rise, to swell, to quiver like a spectre; scarlet and black wounds
break out on the glorious flesh.
The true colors of life deepen,
dance and detach themselves around the Vision in the making. And tremors rise and rumble, and the
frenzied flavor of these effects,
being burdened with the dying gasps and mucous
music that the world, far behind us, hurls at our mother
of beauty, recoils and rears up. Oh! Our bones are dressed in a new and
Ah! The ashen face, the horsehair
escutcheon, the crystal arms! the cannon at which 1 must charge across
the tangle of trees and soft air!
