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 cappclla 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
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 kenfisch@umich.edu 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 programs.
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.
Sincerely,
fO

UMS HISTORY
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.
VENUESBURTON MEMORIAL TOWER
With the 18-month closing of Hill Auditorium for renovations, the 0203 UMS season will include performances by the world's celebrated music, theater and dance artists in 11 venues in three cities: Ann Arbor, Ypsilanti and Detroit.
Ann Arbor Venues
Hill Auditorium
The 18-month, $38.6-million dollar reno?vation to Hill Auditorium began on May 13, 2002 under the direction of Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. Hill was first opened to Michigan audiences in 1913 and this current renovation project will update all of its infrastructure systems and restore much of the interior decor to its original splendor.
Exterior renovations will rebuild brick paving and stone retaining walls, restore the south entrance plaza, rework the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improve the landscaping which surrounds the building.
Interior renovations will create additional restrooms, improve audience circulation by providing elevators, replace main-floor seating to increase patron comfort, introduce barrier-free seating and stage access, replace audio?visual systems, and completely replace all mechanical and electrical infrastructure sys?tems for heating, ventilation, and air condi?tioning.
Upon reopening in January 2004, Hill Auditorium will decrease in seating capacity from 4,169 to 3,710.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to estab?lish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS regularly began presenting artists in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993, when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the intimate 658-seat theatre for the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. The superlative Mendelssohn Theatre has been the home of the UMS Song Recital series for the past eight years.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaude?villemovie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation.
In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000, and balcony restorations have been completed.
Power Center for the Performing Arts
The Power Center for the Performing Arts grew out of a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate proscenium-stage theatre for the performing arts. Hill Auditorium was too massive and technically limited for most productions, and the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre too small. The Power Center was designed to supply this missing link in design and seating capacity.
In 1963, Eugene and Sadye Power, together with their son Philip, wished to make a major
gift to the University, and amidst a list of University priorities was mentioned "a new theatre." The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theatre.
No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two hand-woven tap?estries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
Rackham Auditorium
Sixty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including Univer?sity Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, and Newberry Hall, the cur?rent home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which houses the 1,129-seat Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4-million endowment to further the development of graduate studies.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appoint?ed pastor of a new parish in Ann Arbor. Seventeen years later ground was broken to build a permanent church building, and on March 19, 1969 John Cardinal Dearden dedi?cated the new St. Francis of Assisi Church. Father James McDougal was appointed pastor in 1997.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church has grown from 248 families when it first started in 1950 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splen-
did three manual "mechanical action" organ with 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letourneau from Saint Hyacinthe, Quebec. Through dedication, a commitment to superb liturgical music and a vision to the future, the parish improved the acoustics of the church building, and the reverberant sanctuary has made the church a gathering place for the enjoyment and con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Ypsilanti Venues
EMU Convocation Center
An exciting new era in EMU athletics was set in motion in the fall of 1998 with the opening of the $29.6-million Convocation Center. The Barton-Malow Company along with the architectural firm Rossetti Associates of BirminghamThe Argos Group began con?struction on the campus facility in 1996. The Convocation Center opened its doors on December 9, 1998 with a maximum seating capacity of 9,510 for center-stage entertain?ment events.
Pease Auditorium
Built in 1914, Pease Auditorium was reno?vated in 1995. Earlier this year, the resto?ration of the AeolianSkinner pipe organ was completed and the interior of the auditorium was refurbished. Pease Auditorium can seat up to a total of 1,541 concertgoers.
Detroit Venues
Detroit Opera House
The Detroit Opera House opened in April of 1996 following an extensive renovation by Michigan Opera Theatre. Boasting a 75,000-square-foot stage house (the largest stage between New York and Chicago), an orchestra pit large enough to accommodate 100 musicians and an acoustical virtue to rival the world's great opera houses, the
2,735-seat facility has rapidly become one of the most viable and coveted theatres in the nation. As the home of Michigan Opera Theatre's grand opera season and dance series, and through quality programming, partnerships and educational initiatives, the Detroit Opera House plays a vital role in enriching the lives of the community.
Orchestra Hall
Orchestra Hall was dedicated in 1919 as the new home of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. In 1939, after the depression, the orchestra moved to the Masonic Temple Theatre and the facility was renamed the Paradise Theatre. The Paradise became one of the nation's most famous stages for African-American Jazz musicians (1941-1951).
In the late 1950s, the building was aban?doned and fell into disrepair. In 1964, it was headed for the wrecking ball, but local citizens rallied to save the great concert hall. DSO musicians and volunteers founded Save Orchestra Hall, Inc., to marshal citizen sup?port for the retention and restoration of the building to its former architectural grandeur.
In September 1989 the DSO returned to Orchestra Hall, now its permanent home, 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 U!M8 Matrons,
Welcome to this UMS performance. If you've been attending UMS events for months, years, or even decades, we thank you for your ongoing support. If this is your first UMS event, we hope that it will be the beginning of a long and beautiful relationship, and that you will join us again over the coming months.
In January, I had the opportunity to attend a two-day seminar about dance. As a former oboist and pianist, I have a strong background in classi?cal music but have never felt as confident in my knowledge about dance. When I began at UMS as a work-study student in 1988, my classical music knowledge was sufficient. However, as UMS has expanded its programming over the past decade to include a deep commitment to dance and theater, I wanted to learn more about dance, and, equally important, learn to trust my own instincts about what is "good." I wanted to be able to feel comfort?able talking about dance with the aficionados who attend every performance in the region, and also to make it interesting and enjoyable for those who, like me, have had relatively limited exposure and may even find it intimi?dating.
What I learned most from the seminar can be applied to virtually everything: I need to trust my own instincts. There is no single definition
of "good" when it comes to dance, or any art form for that matter. I can recall any number of occasions where I found a performance particularly moving, only to have friends or co-workers bored to tears by it, or events that I deplored and others thought positively brilliant. While I initially despaired over such different interpretations, I've come to appreciate the ensuing discourse about the art, which has only enriched my performance experience. While my opin?ions may not change, the discussion has allowed me to appreciate performances from a different perspective. I know that sometimes I attend performances seeking sheer entertainment, other times the intellectual engagement of what is happening onstage. A performance can speak to dif-
ferent people in different ways, depending on what the individual concert-goer brings to the performance.
I've also come to realize that although I work for UMS, my experience as a concertgoer is not dissimilar from that of most audience members. When we announce each season, there are many artists whose work I already know, but there are at least as many whom I've never experienced. It's often the artists that I don't know that I'm especially excited about see?ing perform live, and I find that I come away from each performance with something new to consider.
Over the next two months, UMS will be announcing its 0304 season, an ambitious and exciting set of performances in music, dance, and theater. I hope that you will join us for the elements of that season that speak the most strongly to you. And I would also challenge you to try something that's different and bold and daring (for you), something that you're not as comfortable with. And when a friend or neighbor asks, "What did you think" trust your instincts. If you enjoyed it, come back. And if you didn't enjoy it, be honest, but don't be afraid to try again. Some of my most memorable performances are the ones that I went into without quite knowing what to expect.
I look forward to seeing you at more UMS events. Cind regards,
Sara Billmann

Dave Holland is considered one of the most extraordinary bass play?ers, composers and cellists in con?temporary jazz today. From his early days in London accompanying masters like Coleman Hawkins and Ben Webster, through his work with Miles Davis's trailblazing ensemble of the late 1960s, and his long associations with Sam Rivers in the 1970s and other jazz nota?bles, Mr. Holland has performed with those who occupy the loftiest realms of creativity and acclaim, including Betty Carter, Thelonious Monk, Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton, Jack Dejohnette, Elvin Jones, Roy Haynes, Stan Getz, Pat Metheny, Joe Lovano and Gary Burton.
While focusing on being a leader during the past two decades, Mr. Holland has issued a succession of excellent and critically acclaimed recordings, garnering three Grammy nominations, various jazz awards, and consistent ranking on annual best album lists around the world.
In addition to performing in diverse contexts from solo to quintet, Mr. Holland premiered his Big Band while serving as artist-in-residence at the 2000 Montreal Jazz Festival. Commissioned by the Monterey Jazz Festival, Mr. Holland premiered his first large-scale work with his Big Band in September 2001, which kicked off an extensive US and European Quintet tour promoting his ECM Records release Nor For Nothin'.
In addition to continued Quintet tour?ing, Mr. Holland released the first recording by the Big Band in the summer of 2002. Mr. Holland is also a soloist in classical composer Mark Turnage's Bass Inventions (a concerto for double bass and orchestra), which pre?miered at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in May 2001; he continued to tour with the project in February 2002. Following the pre?miere, he toured Europe with SCOLO HOFO, a cooperative ensemble with John Scofield, Joe Lovano and Al Foster.
Mr. Holland is clearly at the forefront of jazz history's most significant and important artists. Voted premiere acoustic bass player in Down Beat magazine's Critics' Poll every year since 1999, he has been similarly hon?ored at the Bell Atlantic and Jazz Journalists Awards, and was named "Musician of the Year" by the Jazz Journalists in 2000. In 2002, he was voted "Jazz Artist of the Year" by Down Beat magazine, sweeping four cate?gories in the Critics' and Readers' Polls: Jazz Artist, Jazz Album (Not for Nothin), Acoustic Jazz Group, and Acoustic Bass the first time a single artist has achieved such recognition in the magazine's history. He also placed in the composer category.
Dedicated to teaching, Mr. Holland has served as artistic director of the summer jazz workshop at the Banff School in Canada for seven years and was a full-time faculty member at Cambridge's prestigious New England Conservatory of Music from 1987-1990. Mr. Holland was also awarded an honorary Doctorate of Music by the Berklee School of Music in 2000.
Born in Wolverhampton, England on October 1, 1946, Mr. Holland was initially self-taught, beginning at the age of four on the ukulele and progressing through guitar, bass guitar and finally the double bass at 15. He left school when he was 15 to pursue a musical career, getting his first double bass job at 17 with a dance band.
Over the next three years, in addition to his studies with James E. Merritt (principal bassist for the London Philharmonic) and a full scholarship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Mr. Holland performed in various settings, covering the gamut of music from early New Orleans to more modern styles.
By 1966 he was playing with London's most innovative artists, including John McLaughlin, John Surman, Kenny Wheeler, Chris McGregor and Evan Parker, taking great inspiration from the era's bass heavy?weights like Jimmy Garrison, Charles Mingus, Scott LaFaro, Ron Carter and Gary Peacock. Similarly influenced by contemporary Western classical composers, especially Bela Bartok, he also performed with chamber orchestras. Playing regularly at Ronnie Scott's, Mr. Holland left for the US in 1968 after Miles Davis heard him play at the famous London club and invited him to join his band. Staying with the ensemble until 1970, he participated in recordings that shook the very foundations of jazz, including Filles de Kilitninjaro, In a Silent Way, and Bitches Brew.
For more than a decade, beginning shortly after his arrival in the US, Mr. Holland played with a steady stream of top names in improvised music. He also maintained a longstanding 10-year association with the composerpianist theoretician Sam Rivers, performing in all contexts from duos to orchestras. It was also during this period that he began a long succession of cooperative endeavors beginning with Circle in 1970 with Chick Corea, Anthony Braxton and Barry Altschul, and continuing with Gateway,
with John Abercrombie and Jack Dejohnette in 1975.
Although Mr. Holland has continued to work consistently with major groups led by Herbie Hancock, Michael Brecker and Joe Henderson, among others, he is primarily committed to focusing on his own ensembles, especially his Quintet, which features saxo?phonist Chris Potter, trombonist Robin Eubanks, vibraphonist Steve Nelson and drummer Billy Kilson; as well as the Octet, which adds trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, alto saxophonist Antonio Hart and baritone sax?ophonist Gary Smulyan.
The Dave Holland Big Band's release, What Goes Around, was recently nominated for a 2003 Grammy Award in the "Best Large Ensemble Jazz Recording" category. Two previous Dave Holland Quintet recordings have also received nominations: Points of View in 1997 and Prime Directive in 1999.
Tonight's performance marks Dave Holland's UMS debut. Tonight also marks the UMS debut performances of both the Dave Holland Quintet and New York Big Band.

Three years ago, on the 100th anniversary of his birth, a national outpouring of tributes and re-eval?uations reflected the profound and pervasive presence of Aaron Copland's music in our national unconscious. After all, Copland legitimately created the American "sound" almost single-handedly. That a gay, Jewish boy from Brooklyn could go to Paris to study and then come home and compose works that defined a new mainstream by capturing the unique quality of yearning and energy that resonate with our diverse culture is remarkable. Copland's America is the jazz of the city and the sim?plicity of the open prairie; the atonal avant-garde and the farmland all rolled into one. In Copland, astringent modernism and lump-in-the-throat patriotism go hand in hand. Appalachian Spring has the simplicity and sublimity of Mozart; Fanfare For The Common Man has the power of a national anthem. Copland listened to our hymns and cowboy songs and wrote his own, better ones, and took his music to the people for their delight and consumption.
The aim of this tour is to reintroduce some of Aaron Copland's early film music to the public in order to celebrate his importance and valued position as a key architect of the sound of American music. Copland spent the first part of his compos-
ing career advancing the cause of mod?ernism, a style he acquired in his studies in Europe. By the late 1930s he focused his well-honed skills on taking up the challenge represented by Dvorak's presence in America decades earlier, that of melding the ethnic indigenous music of the Americans into his composition. The result of this effort was the nearly wholesale creation of an American sound, one he honed in music for hire before and during World War II. In this way, Copland's contribution to the war effort was an uninterrupted string of fervently American works, culminating in the power?fully expressive masterpieces, Appalachian Spring and Fanfare for the Common Man.
Two works from the late '30s, the ballet Billy The Kid and the concert work El Salon Mexico resound with heroic and straightfor?ward depictions of American music, one from cowboy songs, the other from Latin sources. They also provided his first unqual?ified successes. In Copland's works from this time, perhaps his richest period, it is diffi?cult to discern acquired folk melodies from those he created from whole cloth. He got two assignments to compose music for entertainments produced for the 1939 World's Fair, the puppet show, From Sorcery to Science, and the documentary film, The City. The film was to provide an entree to Hollywood, where Copland composed six scores over a 20-year period.
The 1939 World's Fair may not seem like an ideal place for a composer with seri?ous artistic goals to find work, but to Copland it offered two intriguing commis?sions. The Fair called forth works of a wide variety, all dedicated to selling what looks now like a determinedly positive view of progress in industry and human nature. The Fair's planners selected what we now acknowledge to be the modernist masters of architecture, insisting that the exhibit halls have no windows of any kind, which gave the entire campus a sleek, futuristic look.
Films and live shows needed music to pro?mote their messages. Kay Swift, a dynamic Broadway and Hollywood arranger and composer, was hired to oversee the work of the (recently) late George Gershwin, Copland, Kurt Weill, Hans Eisler, George Antheil, Robert Russell Bennett, Oscar Levant and Arthur Schwartz, among others. Copland's soundtrack for the documentary film The City gives full voice to both his chosen simplicity for an imagined rural American music (which would flower four years later in Appalachian Spring), as well as a spirited, driving evocation of our industri?al, urban landscape. The film, with scenario by the leftist producer Pare Lorentz, extols social engineering in Utopian cities as the cure for the ills of the industrial society. It was an impressive and lavish documentary -though technically crude by Hollywood standards at a time when few such films reached a wide public. Also, this was Copland's first experience putting music to image, a task he completed with remarkable originality. The City was to be his entree to Hollywood, where he had tried unsuccess?fully to find work. Violinist Nathan Milstein showed the film to his cousin, director Lewis Milestone, who was to hire Copland to com?pose the score to Samuel Goldwyn's wartime film, The North Star, but not before he com?pleted some of his best scores, to Of Mice And Men, The Red Pony and Our Town. He would later anthologize some of the most memorable moments from those films in the concert work, Music for Movies.
Copland was a composer who was at once ambitious and eminently practical. He was determined to reach a wide public, both for himself and for the salutary effect of promulgating a distinctly American music. At the same time, he had a disinterested curiosity in all kinds of music, from the eso?teric to the commercial, and he was eager to try his hand at every opportunity that came his way. He used the works heard here as a
kind of laboratory for his concert works: one can hear compositional ideas being worked out that find fuller, more sublime form in later pieces. El Salon Mexico and Billy The Kid directly preceded the World's Fair music and early films; Appalachian Spring, The Lincoln Portrait, and the Clarinet Concerto came after.
Though he clearly understood the demands of film music in terms of support?ing images, it is not surprising to find in his film music the directness and constant orig?inality so characteristic of his greatest works. The Cummington Story was a 20-minute documentary produced in 1944 by the War Department. Its purpose was to encourage local communities to look kindly upon refugees displaced persons caught in the updraft of war. The music underscores with great beauty the small Massachusetts town of the title, the new families' efforts to fit in, find work, join churches and go to a county fair, all in harmony with their New England. The Cummington Story music transforms a modest narrative into a moving meditation on the notion of liberty and community, a message compromised only by the ending of the film, in which the immigrants are essen?tially invited to leave as soon as conditions appear propitious. Regardless of what occa?sioned the music, Copland was able to use the central part of the score in the opening slow movement of the Clarinet Concerto, written for Benny Goodman six years later.
Copland shares the stage on this tour with another American composer, Paul Bowles, whose fame rests not upon his music, but upon his writing, especially the novel, The Sheltering Sky. Bowles, however, thought of himself as a composer before the world recognized him as a novelist. After some desultory musical training, including a peri?od of private lessons with Copland, he spent the first half of his life writing incidental music for the New York theater. After his move to Tangier in 1948, he returned to
New York only once more in his life, to attend a festival of his music by the Eos Orchestra at Lincoln Center.
Outside of his theatrical commissions, Bowles composed a handful of concert pieces and many songs that are his most frequently performed works. The Suite for Small Orchestra was composed after Bowles's studies with Copland, during a year of travel that took him from Algiers to Tunis, Tangier, Cadiz, and Puerto Rico. An abstract work, it was created for no specific performance, predating his long list of theatrical commis?sions. This music delights in transforming North African melodies and Spanish dance rhythms, which emerge in this treatment sounding like a cafe-orchestra on a tour with its wandering composer.
Like Copland, Bowles traveled exten?sively in Latin America. Mediodia (Noonday), performed for the first High-Low Concert, in February 1938 (and sharing the bill with Duke Ellington) was an orchestration of an earlier piano piece, Huapango. Both com?posers took a lot from Mexican rhythms, Bowles here and Copland in El Salon Mexico.
We conclude these concerts with the rarely heard complete ballet, Appalachian Spring, which is Copland's and America's masterpiece. It was written for the choreo?grapher Martha Graham in 1943, and right away became the calling card for both com?poser and choreographer. Both responded to the surge of patriotism during World War II with this inspired work, whose narrative follows the challenges of a 19th-century couple as they start their life together in rural America. The better-known suite from the ballet loses some remarkable passages that are heard here in the original instru?mentation, which was for 13 instruments. We have augmented the string section, something Copland approved of whenever space and budget allowed.
Jonathan Sheffer, a composer and conductor, continues to win acclaim by melding elements of theater and thematic programming into the tra?ditional concert form. The result: the Eos Orchestra, founded eight years ago, thrives today as an innovative musical force, one that successfully breaks down concert-hall barriers through creative methods and collaborations with other artistic disciplines.
Born in New York City, Mr. Sheffer graduated from Harvard University, where he was a student of Leonard Bernstein. He later attended The Juilliard School and the Aspen School of
Music. He began conducting after spending several years composing scores for Hollywood films. After recording three film scores with the Seattle Symphony, he made his conduct?ing debut with the San Diego Symphony
in 1991, and since then has returned three times to lead the Seattle Symphony.
In the 2002 season, Mr. Sheffer made his New York City Opera debut conducting John Philip Sousa's The Glass Blowers. In 2001 he conducted the American Ballet Theatre at the Metropolitan Opera, and the Filarmonica di Roma in Hadrian's Villa, Rome. In 2000 Mr. Sheffer led the Sapporo Symphony at the Pacific Music Festival in Japan, the New World Symphony in Miami, and the United World Philharmonic Youth Orchestra in Bonn. He also conducted the Brooklyn Philharmonic in performances of the Mark Morris Dance Company at BAM in 1997, and in 1996, led the Scottish Chamber Orchestra at the Edinburgh Festival.
A prolific composer, Mr. Sheffer's cata?logue of works include orchestral, solo piano, concertos, musicals, short operas, film scores
and song cycles. His work was the focus of a Guggenheim Works & Process series event in October 1999. His opera, Blood on the Dining Room Floor, from the Gertrude Stein novel of the same name, finished a critically acclaimed Off-Broadway run in May of 2000. The opera received the Richard Rodgers Production Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and was given a reading as part of the New York City Opera's showcasing American Composers Program.
Mr. Sheffer was recently appointed as the Music Director of Red {an orchestra}, a new chamber orchestra in Cleveland, which made its debut in the fall of 2002.
This afternoon's performance marks Jonathan Sheffer's UMS debut.
Entering its eighth season under the baton of Artistic Director Jonathan Sheffer, the Eos Orchestra is setting new standards for imaginative musi?cal programming. The Orchestra focuses on the rediscovery of important neglected works and composers, collabora?tion with other artistic disciplines and the use of visual and theatrical elements on the concert stage.
Eos' annual subscription series runs from February to May at the Concert Hall at New York's Ethical Culture Society. These often sold-out events bring audiences a new way to see music.
In addition to the subscription season, the Orchestra has appeared at the Lincoln Center Festival, Chicago's Ravinia Festival, Boston's Sanders Theatre, the Guggenheim Museum, the 92nd Street Y, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, DC, and free public outdoor concerts at the former World Trade Center, among others. In 1998, Eos performed at
the White House for the President and First Lady at the ceremony for the National Medal of Arts and Humanities Awards, and received the Japan Music Award, presented by Julie Taymor, for its educational programs. In the fall of 2002, Eos made its Brooklyn Academy of Music debut, performing a new Philip Glass opera, Galileo Galilei, and its Metro?politan Museum of Art debut with a holiday concert.
Eos' discography of five compact discs includes 2002's Grammy nominated CD, Celluloid Copland, which features world pre?miere recordings of Aaron Copland's film music. Eos has also published four books of essays and images on musical topics.
The Orchestra's television appearances include an A&E Biography of Ludwig van Beethoven and a PBS broadcast of WNEI7 Channel Thirteen's Great Performances tele?vision special, Copland's America, which was also broadcast by the BBC. Eos can be heard regularly on National Public Radio's Performance Today in the US and on public radio in Europe.
This afternoon's performance marks the Eos Orchestra's UMS debut.

Symphony No. 4 in c minor, D 417
Franz Schubert
Born January 31, 1797 in Himmelpfortgrund,
nr. Vienna Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna
Tonight marks the second UMS performance of Schubert's Symphony No. 4. The Los Angeles Philharmonic gave the UMS premiere of the piece in December 1982.
Even though Schubert himself appended the subtitle "Tragic" to his Symphony No. 4, we should not expect tragedy on the scale of Beethoven's Symphony No. 5, or even on the scale of Schubert's own song "Erlkonig," written a year before Symphony No. 4. As a writer of orchestral works, the 19-year-old Schubert was not yet ready to take on the challenge of Beethoven's heroic style; but he spoke the language of Haydn, Mozart and early Beethoven as his mother tongue and it was to that style to which he was making some highly individual and mature contributions.
The overwhelming majority of 18th-century symphonies were written in the major mode, which was traditionally associ?ated with bright and exuberant feelings. On the rare occasions when composers chose a minor key, the mood tended to darken and become more agitated. When this manner of writing first appeared in the 1770s, it seemed to parallel the Sturm und Drang, a literary movement in Germany that favored tragic moods and paved the way for Romanticism. It was almost inevitable that Schubert should try his hand at the "tragic" genre established by his predecessors. Schubert's Symphony No. 4 is similar to the minor-key symphonies of Haydn and Mozart in its exceptional emotional intensity, unmatched in his oeuvre until the "Unfinished" (which, significantly, is also in a minor key).
In their minor-key works, Haydn and Mozart often engaged in harmonic adven?tures not seen when the tonality is major. The young Schubert, well aware that in the minor, business is never as usual, wrote one of his most complex and profound adagio introductions to date. (It has been compared to the "Chaos" Prelude from Haydn's oratorio The Creation and to the opening of Mozart's "Dissonant" String Quartet, K. 465). Frequent key changes take the music as far from the initial c minor as the Classical tonal system allows (reaching the remotest point with a long-held G-flat-Major chord). Upon a no less eventful return to c minor, the "Allegro vivace" begins. It is a stormy movement with a theme of great urgency and a contrasting lyrical second theme. The harmonic experiment continues: instead of gradually modulating, Schubert "jumps," at one point, from A-flat to E and C and then back to A-flat. It was probably the first time ever that the octave (A-flat to A-flat) was divided like this into three equal major thirds a symmetrical division that cuts across different tonalities. This simple idea had enormous implications for the evolu?tion of harmony in the 19th century. The accumulated harmonic tensions are finally resolved at the end of the movement when the tonality changes to the major. Usually, composers of minor-key symphonies save this particular move for their last move?ments, but Schubert evidently couldn't wait that long to introduce a powerful contrast between high drama and joyful celebration.
The second movement, "Andante," opens with a gentle major-key melody played by the strings, soon followed by an agitated passage in the minor mode. Schubert's model here seems to have been the second movement of Mozart's Symphony No. 39, built on a similar thematic contrast. In his biography of Mozart, Maynard Solomon found a particularly apt name for lyrical slow movements with dramatic middle
sections: "Trouble in Paradise." As in the Mozart, the "trouble" goes away at the end of the movement, and peace and order are restored in "paradise."
The third movement follows the out?lines of a scherzo, but the mood, instead of being playful, reverts to the Sturm urtd Drang world of the first movement, with some angular melodic motion emphasizing chromatic harmonies (which tend to desta?bilize the feeling of tonality). The Trio (middle section) brings temporary relief from the tensions, but even here the unusual key changes bespeak a certain sense of restlessness.
In the last movement, Schubert intro?duces a "dark" c-minor theme and treats it with inimitable grace. In the second theme, first violins and clarinets alternate to the lively accompaniment of second violins and violas, with persistent single notes thrown in by the first horn, to a splendidly humorous effect. The final switch to the major mode occurs sooner than it did in the first move?ment; although traces of the "dark" minor mode persist to the very end, the closing section is happy and buoyant. Whatever "tragedy" there was at the beginning has surely been overcome by now.
Symphony No. 9 in e minor. Op. 95
Antonin Dvorak
Born September 8, 1841 in Nelahozeves,
Czechoslovakia Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
Tonight marks the ninth VMS performance of Dvorak's Symphony No. 9. The Boston Festival Orchestra gave the UMS premiere of the piece during the 1901 May Festival.
The credit for bringing Dvorak to the US belongs to Jeanette M. Thurber (1850-1946), wife of a wealthy New York businessman.
Mrs. Thurber was a dedicated philanthropist to whom the musical life of this country has always owed so much. In 1885-86, she found?ed both the National Conservatory of Music and the American Opera Company. One of her greatest achievements was a scholarship program for minority students, which enabled many Blacks and Native Americans to become professional musicians. Another was to persuade Antonin Dvorak to come to the US from his native Bohemia and become the director of the Conservatory in 1892.
After a long round of negotiations, Dvorak arrived in the US on September 27, 1892, aboard the S.S. Saale, for what would be a stay of three years. He was accompanied by his wife, two of his six children, and a secretary. His work at the Conservatory was not very hard. He had to teach composition three mornings a week and conduct the stu?dent orchestra on two afternoons. This schedule left him enough time for conduct?ing at public concerts as well as composing.
Mrs. Thurber later claimed it was at her suggestion that Dvorak first started to work on his Symphony No. 9. As she recollected,
He used to be particularly homesick on steamer days when he read the shipping news in the Herald.1 Thoughts of home often moved him to tears. On one of these days I suggested that he write a symphony embodying his experiences and feelings in America a suggestion which he promptly adopted.
This prompting would hardly have suf?ficed, had Dvorak himself not felt ready to "embark" on a new symphony. But embark he did, and when the score was finished the next spring, he made the following inscrip?tion on the last page of the manuscript: "Praise God! Completed 24th May 1893 at
Dvof ak had a passion for trains and ships all his life. In Nor York, he spent a great deal of time at the harbor watching ships arrive and depart, and convening with the captains. When reading the newspaper, be paid particular attention to notices about the arrivals and departures of transAtlantic ships.
9 o'clock in the morning. The children have arrived at Southampton (a cable came at 1:33 pm)." The four children Dvorak had left behind joined their parents in New York a few days later. Thus, both the beginning and the end of this symphony's composition seem to be connected to the ships' leaving and arriving.
Much ink has been spilled over the question as to whether Symphony No. 9 incorporates any melodies Dvorak heard in the US, and whether the symphony is "American" or "Czech" in character. Dvorak's interest in both Negro spirituals and American Indian music was evident, but he actually knew very little about the latter and, as far as the former was concerned, relied mainly on a single source of information. Harry T. Burleigh, an African-American student at the Conservatory, who later became a noted composer and singer, performed many spir?ituals (and also Stephen Foster songs) for Dvorak. The composer was impressed, but his knowledge of American musical traditions remained limited. The composer did not claim to have used any original melodies, trying instead to "reproduce their spirit," as he put it in an interview published three days before the symphony's premiere.
We will understand what Dvorak meant by this if we compare the famous English horn solo from the symphony's slow move?ment with the spiritual "Steal Away," which
was probably among the songs Dvorak had heard from Burleigh. Many years later, H.C. CoUes asked Burleigh to sing to him the songs he had sung to Dvorak, and noted that "the sound of the English horn resembled quite closely the quality of Burleigh's voice."
Both melodies share the same rhythmic patterns and the same pentatonic scale. It is no wonder that Dvorak's melody was sub?sequently adopted as a spiritual in its own right under the title "Goin' Home," with words by one of Dvorak's New York students, William Arms Fisher. Several other melodies in the symphony have similar songlike shapes, suggesting folk inspiration. One instance where a possible model has been identified is the first movement's second theme, which is strongly reminiscent of the spiritual "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot."
A further link between Symphony No. 9 and the New World has to do with an aborted opera project based on The Song of Hiawatha. It was another one of Mrs. Thurber's sug?gestions that Dvorak write an opera on Longfellow's poem, with which he had long been familiar, having read it in Czech trans?lation 30 years before. The opera never quite got off the ground, but according to musi?cologist Michael Beckerman the slow movement was conceived with Minnehaha's Forest Funeral from Hiawatha in mind.
Additionally, the "Scherzo" was inspired by the dance of Pau-Puk-Keewis (for this, we have Dvorak's own testimony from an interview).
The origins and the meaning of Dvorak's themes are certainly not the only interesting aspects of this symphony. After all, beautiful melodies alone, whatever their provenance may be, do not a symphony make. In his Symphony No. 9, Dvorak proved not only his supreme melodic gifts, but also his mastery in organizing his melodies into coherent and well-balanced musical structures.
The opening horn theme of the first movement, "Allegro molto," already hinted at in the preceding slow introduction, serves as a unifying gesture that returns in each of the symphony's movements. In the second movement, "Largo," it appears at the climac?tic point in the faster middle section, shortly before the return of the English horn solo. In the "Scherzo," it is heard between the scherzo proper and the Trio; this time, the energetic brass theme is transformed into a lyrical melody played by the cellos and the violas. Between the Trio and the recapitula?tion of the scherzo, the theme resumes its original character. The same melody can also be found in the finale shortly before the end, in a coda that incorporates quotations from the second and third movements as well. The ending of the symphony, then, combines the main themes from all four movements in a magnificent synthesis.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Nikolaus Harnoncourt was born in Berlin, raised in Graz, Austria and studied the cello in Vienna, where from 1952 to 1969 he was cellist with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. In 1972, he became Professor for Performance Practice at the Salzburg Mozarteum, a position he held until 1993.
In 1953, Mr. Harnoncourt and his wife, Alice Harnoncourt, founded the Concentus Musicus Wien as a specialist ensemble for the performance of early music on authentic instruments. By 1957, he was giving regular concerts with the group.
Since 1970, Nikolaus Harnoncourt has worked as a conductor both in the opera house (he has appeared in Milan, Zurich, Amsterdam, Hamburg, Frankfurt and Vienna) and in the concert hall, where he has worked with the great European orches?tras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Vienna Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Vienna Symphony, London Philharmonia, and the Chamber Orchestra of Europe. He frequently collaborates with many of the world's most renowned soloists, including Martha Argerich, Gidon Kremer, Thomas Hampson, Dawn Upshaw, Cecilia Bartoli and Peter Seiffert. Highlights of his career have included productions of operas by Monteverdi and Mozart at the Zurich Opera in stagings by Jean-Pierre Ponnelle and Jurgen Flimm, performances of Mozart, Haydn and Schubert with the Royal Concert?gebouw Orchestra, and Beethoven cycles with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe.
Mr. Harnoncourt's recording activities have expanded since 1970 to include operas, oratorios and symphonic works of the 18th and 19th centuries. He has performed and recorded the late symphonies of Mozart and Haydn, Beethoven's complete symphonies and Violin Concerto, Schubert's and Schumann's complete symphonies, as well as Schumann's piano and violin concertos. The complete Brahms symphonies, the Violin Concerto and the Double Concerto were released in 1997. Mr. Harnoncourt is in the process of completing a Mozart sym?phonies cycle, several recordings of which were released in 1998 and 1999, as were Mozart's complete Sacred Works. In 1999, his 70th birthday was marked by Teldec's release of a 10-CD all-Beethoven boxed set
containing the nine symphonies, overtures, Violin Concerto, the Missa solemnis and the Romances for Violin and Orchestra.
Nikolaus Harnoncourt conducted the Vienna Philharmonic's 2001 New Year's Concert to rave reviews internationally. The live concert reached a television audience of millions worldwide and the Teldec CD, issued just one week later, has sold upwards of 200,000 copies to date. Harnoncourt has accepted the orchestra's invitation to conduct its New Year's Concert again in 2003.
February 2002 marked the audio-DVD release of Mr. Harnoncourt's Grammy award-winning recording of Bach's St. Matthew Passion with Concentus Musicus Wien. CD releases for 2002 included Smetana's Ma Vlast with the Vienna Philharmonic and three discs with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe: Dvorak 's Slavonic Dances, Op. 46 and 72, Beethoven's Piano Concertos Nos. 1 and 2, with Pierre-Laurent Aimard, and Harnon?court's first Bartok recording {Divertimento for String Orchestra and Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta). Projected releases with Concentus Musicus Wien include a HaydnMozart vocal disc with Cecilia Bartoli, the final disc in a cycle of early Mozart Symphonies (KV 19a, 22,45a, 45b, 121 and 196) and a 10-CD set of the complete early symphonies of Mozart.
Nikolaus Harnoncourt's outstanding achievements have been recognized with numerous awards: the Ernst von Siemens Music Prize (1974), the Erasmus Prize (1980), the Hans Georg Nageli Medal of the City of Zurich (1982) and the Joseph Marx Music Prize of the Province of Styria (1982). In 1983, he was appointed a member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Music in Stockholm. In 1985, he received the Golden Honorary Emblem of the German Record
Critics for his services to Early Music. In 1987, he received an honorary doc?torate from the University of Edinburgh. His recordings of Beethoven's Missa solemnis
and Symphonies Nos. 1-9 with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and the Arnold Schoenberg Choir received numerous dis?tinctions, including the German Record Critics' Prize and Gramophone magazine's "Record of the Year" award. In 1994, Mr. Harnoncourt was awarded the prestigious Polar Music Prize. More recently, his record?ing of Bach's St. Matthew Passion won the 2002 Grammy award for "Best Choral Performance" and Belgium's Caecilia Prize. In May 2002, Mr. Harnoncourt received the Ernst von Siemens Prize for Lifetime Achievement.
An exclusive Teldec recording artist for over 35 years, Mr. Harnoncourt made his first recordings with what was then Telefunken in 1963. Since then he has made several hundred recordings during a career spanning several decades that has been charted in numerous television documen?taries and three full-length books. The Residenz Verlag, Salzburg, published an authorized biography of Nikolaus Harnoncourt by music journalist Monika Mertl in 1999.
In June 2000, Nikolaus Harnoncourt signed a lifetime contract with Teldec.
Tonight's performance marks Nikolaus Harnoncourt's UMS debut.
Until the first Philharmonic con?cert on March 28, 1842 more than a half-century after Mozart's death and fifteen years after Beethoven's the city which had given its name to the "Viennese Classicists" Haydn, Mozart, and Beethoven had no per?manent professional orchestra. The demand for symphonic performances was filled by ensembles partly made up of dilettantes, and had one of two reasons for existence: either for performances by soloists and com?posers desiring to present their works to the public, or for benefit concerts. At that time, orchestras composed solely of professional musicians could be found only in theaters. One of these had already been heard in con?certs at the end of the 18th century during Lent of 1785, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart engaged the Viennese Court Opera Orchestra for a cycle of six concerts in the "Mehlgrube" Hall. For his Academy concert of April 2, 1800, Ludwig van Beethoven also employed the ensemble to premiere his Symphony No. 1. Years later, on May 7, 1824, the orchestra of the Society of the Friends of Music (com?posed, that is, of dilettantes), along with the Court Opera Orchestra, augmented by the Court Music Ensemble, played the first per?formance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 9. Nevertheless, it would still take several years before Vienna's most prestigious ensem?ble would appear as the main attraction on symphony concerts. Franz Lachner, the Bavarian composer and conductor at the Court Opera Theater, performed Beethoven symphonies between acts of ballets and dreamt of establishing an "Artists Society" whose sole focus would be orchestral works. t Such experimental programming was the first step in elevating symphonic works in concert programs.
In 1841, Otto Nicolai, who would later gain international recognition as the com?poser of the comic opera The Merry Wives of Windsor, was called to the post of Principal
Conductor of the Kamtnertor Theater. At the urging of Vienna's musical cognoscenti, he took up Lachner's idea, and on March 28, 1842, led a "Grand Concert" in the main auditorium of Redouten Hall, organized by the Royal Imperial Court Opera Theater. Originally titled the "Philharmonic Academy," this ensemble marked the birth of the Vienna Philharmonic, an occasion when all the principles of the "Philharmonic Idea," still valid today were realized for the first time:
only a musician engaged by the Vienna State Opera can be a member of the Vienna Philharmonic;
the orchestra is founded on artistic, organiza?tional, and financial self-responsibility;
all decisions are to be made democratically by the main body of active members;
actual administrative work will be carried out by a democratically elected 12-member committee.
Despite the tally of 11 successful concerts under Nicolai's direction, the collaboration between this brilliant but authoritarian artist and the orchestra was overshadowed by disagreements. When Nicolai left Vienna for good in 1847, the young enterprise, sud?denly bereft of artistic and administrative direction, all but collapsed.
Finally, after 12 years of stagnation, during which the demoralized ensemble ventured only ten events on its own, the long-awaited turning point was reached in 1860, when the first of four subscription concerts was given under the baton of the former Opera Director, Carl Eckert.
Since then, the "Philharmonic Concerts" have continued without break. The only significant change in all those years was to switch from having one conductor for a complete season of subscription concerts to the present system of having various guest conductors within a season, as the following chronology demonstrates:
i860
1860-1875
1875-1882
1882-1883
1883-1898
1898-1901
1901-1903
1903-1908
1908-1927
1927-1930
1930-1933
Carl Eckert Otto Dessoff Hans Richter Wilhelm Jahn Hans Richter Gustav Mahler Joseph Hellmesberger Jr. Guest conductors Felix von Weingartner Wilhelm Furtwangler Clemens Krauss Guest conductors
Under Otto Dessoff's leadership, the reper?toire was significantly enlarged, and the orchestra's music archives and bylaws were organized as the ensemble moved to its new home. The 187071 season saw the Philharmonic performing in the newly built Goldener Saal in the Musikverein building in Vienna, which has proved to be the ideal venue, with its acoustical characteristics influencing the orchestra's style and sound. It was under Hans Richter's leadership that this incomparable orchestra arrived at world-caliber status the legendary Richter, had already championed some of the most formidable repertoire of the day, including the first performance of Wagner's tetralogy, The Ring of the Nibelung at Bayreuth. The Philharmonic also hosted guest performances by renowned soloists and conductors such as Wagner, Mahler, Verdi, Brahms, and Liszt. The Philharmonic's close relationship to Richard Strauss, of course, is of great histor?ical importance, and represents one of the many high points in the rich history of the orchestra. "The Golden Age," which Richter's tenure has come to be called, saw the world premieres of Brahms's Symphony Nos. 2 and 3 as well as Bruckner's Symphony No. 8.
Tonight's performance marks the Vienna Philharmonic's ninth appearance under UMS auspices. The orchestra made its UMS debut in November 1956 under the baton of Maestro Andre Cluytens. The Vienna Philharmonic last appeared under UMS auspices in a gala benefit concert held in honor of Leonard Bernstein's 70th Birthday Year and Hill Auditorium's 75th Anniversary. The gala concert was held on October 29, 1988 in Hill Auditorium under the baton of Maestro Bernstein.

String Quartet No. 4
Alfred Schnittke
Born November 24, 1934 in Engles,
near Saratov, Russia Died 1998 in Hamburg, Germany
"The Vertiginous Fourth Quartet" begins the entry for the letter V in Solomon Volkov's "ABCs of Schnittke," a deeply personal mem?oir about the Russian-German master whose place has long been confirmed among the greatest composers of his generation. The adjective was well chosen. The last and also by far the longest of Schnittke's quartets, String Quartet No. 4 reaches truly dizzying heights of musical expression. The work is filled with the ethos of the "Late Quartet" in the true sense of Beethoven and Shostakovich: it is a serious and complex work that reaches out directly for the universals. But Beethoven's optimistic conclusions were not granted to Schnittke. The sick man does not recover and offer thanks to God for his healing, nor does he feel "new strength," as does the imaginary hero of Beethoven's Op. 132. There is no hard-won but ultimately positive decision made as in Op. 135. Beethoven's Op. 131, heard in the second half of this evening's concert, ends on a vigorously dra?matic, if by no means happy, note; but even that defiant victory is beyond reach here. The spirit of Shostakovich's late quartets, with their dark and unrelenting sense of tragedy, is much closer to Schnittke, who, since relatively early in his career, was often called the heir of Shostakovich. The two composers were not particularly close per?sonally, and on the surface at least, Schnittke's music sounds nothing like his older col?league's. Yet in his String Quartet No. 3 (1983), Schnittke quoted explicitly from Shostakovich (and also from Beethoven), acknowledging this extraordinary artistic lineage.
There are no such quotes in String Quartet No. 4, yet it was perhaps in that work that Schnittke fully accepted the mantle of Shostakovich. Four years before writing this work, the composer had suffered his first stroke (three more were to follow). For the rest of his life, death could never be far from his mind, no more than it could be for Shostakovich, also gravely ill in his final years. No wonder if, to quote Volkov again, the quartet "brings with it neither peace nor harmony. Instead, all of the accumulated contradictions, sorrows, and problems are once again tied into an intellectual knot."
The 40-minute quartet is very tightly constructed, though its unfolding is slow. There are five movements slow-fast-slow-fast-slow; the first three are played without pause. Certain ideas and motifs run through the entire work. The hesitant melodic frag?ments of the cello that open the work also return at the very end, there played by the entire quartet. Equally if not more impor?tant is the quarter-tone trill that appears in the viola about half-way through the first movement and then erupts, fortissimo, in the first violin not long afterwards. This cri?sis soon subsides, but a new drama begins in the "Allegro," an impulsive movement hov?ering between outbursts of despair and expressions of quiet grief.
The central movement paints a desolate landscape dominated by the hestiant melody and the slow quarter-tone trills from the first movement. A shorter "Vivace" follows, with a more regular rhythmic flow than in the second movement; the steady pulse vaguely suggests a dance or a scherzo but the mood remains grave and intense. Harsh repeated chords and agitated pizzicatos enliven the texture, in utter contrast to the fifth move?ment, which begins with large passionate gestures, only to collapse into despair once more as the motifs of the first movement return for the last time.
Schnittke wrote his String Quartet No. 4 for the Alban Berg Quartet, which gave the first performance in Vienna on January 14, 1989 and subsequently recorded it for EMI.
Program note by Peter Laki.
Quartet in c-sharp minor. Op. 131
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 16, 1770 in Bonn Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
Mahler believed that the symphony should "embrace everything," but Beethoven proved with his String Quartet in c-sharp minor, Op. 131, that this intimate chamber genre could also encompass a world of expressive possibilities. Written between November 1825 and July 1826, the Quartet in c-sharp minor is surely one of the most heterogeneous collections of movements to be gathered under a single title. Beethoven joked to his publisher that it was nothing more than a series of odds and ends left over from other works (later assuring him that it was indeed "all new"). The work has seven movements including a fugue, theme and variations, and a sonata-allegro and no less than 20 tempo changes (not including ritardandos and a tempi). But his Op. 131 is also perhaps the most deeply integrated quartet Beethoven ever composed.
Beethoven entirely abandons the tradi?tional movement structure in this quartet. The format more closely resembles an 18th-century divertimento in its succession of disparate movements. But while the first and last movements are the only ones in the tonic key, the harmonic scheme for the quartet is derived from an over-arching cadential progression that leads inexorably to the finale. The succession of movement types, linked without a break, also throws
the work's formal weight onto the final sonata-allegro. Like Symphony No. 9, it is a finale-based composition.
The "Adagio" fugue that opens Op. 131 is the first opening slow movement Beethoven composed since the "Moonlight" Piano Sonata some 25 years earlier. As the "Moonlight" Sonata is also the only other work he wrote in c-sharp minor, it seems Beethoven associ?ated this key with a certain brooding, myste?rious quality. But the home key is barely established before wide-ranging modulations move through four changes of key signature in the movement. Wagner may have been overstating the case somewhat when he called this fugue "the saddest thing ever said in notes." Daniel Gregory Mason's descrip?tion of it as a "peculiar blend of passion with patience" is perhaps closer to the mark.
The fugue ends on octave C-sharps, which then shift up a half-step to D for the second movement, a gentle scherzo in a highly compressed sonata form that is as cheerful as the fugue was grave. The main theme is unselfconsciously naive, and there is hardly any second theme to speak of. Just as the new key area is established, the reca?pitulation makes its surprisingly eager entry, with a slightly extended coda compensating for the intrusion.
Though numbered separately in Beethoven's manuscript, the third movement is little more than a brief, declamatory inter?lude in recitative style. The set of variations that follow manifests yet again the compos?er's late-style fascination with variation forms. This central movement is a moment of repose in which both form and harmony are stable; there are no surprises here. The A-Major theme, with pizzicato cello and sus?tained viola, exudes warmth and depth, while a rest on the first beat creates a mild ambiguity of meter. The remainder of the movement consists of six double variations (with the repeats written out in full and
slightly varied). The first four are decorative. Variation five, however, reduces the theme to its essence; Vincent d'Indy described it as "almost silence." The sixth and final varia?tion is halting and anxious. What begins as a seventh devolves into a series of trills that then develops into a lengthy coda. The last measures were particularly troublesome for Beethoven; in his notebooks he modified the final four measures fifteen times, and the final published version was different again.
The "Presto" in E Major is decidedly more high-spirited than the second move?ment, with a madcap humor that is perhaps even a little vulgar (at least in the original sense). It goes to the trio section twice, but on the third attempt, the scherzo and Trio collide head on, and both are momentarily disoriented. The strings play the main theme sul ponticello (the only time Beethoven used this technique), producing a thin, high-pitched effect that is outrageously comic.
The brief "Adagio" in G-sharp Major, possibly based on an old French song, func?tions as an extended dominant preparation for the final sonata-allegro movement, the end-goal of the entire work. Joseph Kerman writes of the finale, "It crowns the composi?tion in practically every way: in force of expression, intellectual intensity, breadth of action, and integrative power over the com?position as a whole." It begins with a theme whose notes are almost identical to the main theme from Bach's Musical Offering (also in c-sharp minor), while the contrasting theme alludes explicitly to the first movement. The development and recapitulation are both rather terse, emphasizing the laconic nature of the themes themselves. Though the quar?tet ends on a tonic major chord, Donald Tovey describes the coda as "unsurpassed anywhere in Beethoven for tragic power."
An often-repeated anecdote claims that Beethoven was once asked which of his
compositions he liked the best. Though reluctant to single one out above the rest, he reportedly replied that of all his works, this quartet was his favorite.
Program note by Luke Howard.
For more than 30 years the Alban Berg Quartet has performed regu?larly in music capitals and major festivals throughout the world. The Quartet has its own concert series at the Vienna Konzerthaus (where it debuted in 1971 and is now an Honorary Member), Royal Festival Hall in London, (where it is an Associate Artist), and at the Opera Zurich, the Theatre des Champs-Elysees in Paris, the Cologne Philharmonie and the Alte Oper Frankfurt.
Since its founding the Alban Berg Quartet has been a prolific recording ensem?ble and has received more than 30 major international awards, including the Grand Prix du Disque, the Deutsche Schallplatten-preis, the Edison Prize, the first International Classical Music Award, the Japan Grand Prix and the Gramophone Magazine Award. The public and critics regard many of these recordings as definitive.
The Quartet's many recording projects include the complete quartets by Beethoven, Brahms, Berg, Webern and Bartok, the com?plete late Mozart and late Schubert quartets, quartets by Haydn, Dvorak , Schumann, Ravel, Debussy, Stravinsky, von Einem and Haubenstock-Ramati, as well as live record?ings from Carnegie Hall, the Opera Comique in Paris, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and the Konzerthaus in Vienna. Following its original Beethoven cycle recorded in the studio some years ago, the live recording of its Beethoven cycle at the Konzerthaus dur?ing the Vienna Festival in 1989 has been
released on CD and video. The Quartet has also made live recordings of works by Janacek, Lutoslawski, Berio, Schnittke, Urbanner and Rihm (most of which are dedicated to the Alban Berg Quartet), as well as the Dvorak Piano Quintet (with Rudolf Buchbinder), Schubert's late quartets, Brahms's Clarinet Quintet and String Quintet, Op. Ill, and Mozart's Piano Quartet in E-flat Major and Piano Quintet, KV414 with Alfred Brendel, the quartets Op. 51 and Op. 106 of Dvorak and, most recently, also live, Mendelssohn's quartets Op. 12 and Op. 13.
Reviews for the Alban Berg Quartet confirm its reputation, having been hailed as "one of the great ensembles of our time" by the San Francisco Chronicle, and described as exhibiting "stunning perfection" by The Washington Post. The Frankfurter AUgemeine Zeitung proclaims, "the Alban Berg Quartet have achieved legendary standards in cham?ber music playing."
More important to the Quartet than the superlative praise in the press is its self-appointed mission of giving the most harmonious interpretation of the works it performs and of extending its repertoire from the classical to the avant-garde; the name "Alban Berg" symbolizes this commitment.
The Alban Berg Quartet also takes responsibility for the training of young musicians; its members are professors at the Universitat fur Musik und darstellende Kunst in Vienna and in 1993, joined the Musikhochschule fur Musik in Cologne as successors of the Amadeus Quartet. The members of the Quartet are as dedicated to this task as they are to their own musical work and performance.
Tonight's performance marks theAlban Berg Quartet's UMS debut.

In the Upper Room
Philip Glass
Born January 1937 in Baltimore
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere of Philip Glass's In the Upper Room.
In the Upper Room was originally conceived as a ballet for the then newly founded com?pany Twyla Tharp Dance. It was first per?formed in 1986 as untitled work-in-progress at the Saratoga Arts Center Little Theater where it was immediately hailed as a new, dynamic creation by audience and critics alike. A subsequent recording of five of the work's original nine sections inspired Dennis Russell Davies, a close friend of the compos?er and longtime protagonist of Philip Glass's music, to re-conceive the work as a kind of magical pantomime for the concert hall, relying on the resourcefulness of two mime artists using only a sheet of canvas as a prop and a couple of square yards of stage room less than for a concert grand piano. In a word, minimal music should accompany minimal theater. Dennis Russell Davies, who has resourcefully re-scored the five dances for string orchestra, was aided in making a visual realization of the music by Alexander Neander and Wolfram von Bodecker, two exceptionally talented young mime artists from the celebrated Compagnie de Mimodrame Marcel Marceau. The result is a tragicomic intermezzo, which takes references to Shakespeare's plays The Tempest and Romeo and Juliet as a starting point, although this imaginary Juliet has two suitors instead of one. The mini-drama unfolds against a background of Philip Glass's shifting pattern variations, an infinitely subtly woven tapestry of sound, which casts its own special spell.

Tonight's performance marks the third com?plete UMS performance of Haydn's Symphony No. 49. The Bath Festival Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Yehudi Menuhin gave the UMS premiere of the piece as part of the Fair Lane Festival on the Dearborn campus of the University of Michigan in July 1967.
There appears to have been a "Romantic cri?sis" in Haydn's life between 1768 and 1772, approximately. It has been fashionable to link this crisis to a contemporaneous trend in German literature known as the Sturm und Drang (storm and stress). This trend, an important precursor of Romanticism, pro?duced such literary masterpieces as Goethe's Leiden des jungen Werther (The Suffering of Young Werther) and Schiller's Die Rduber (The Bandits).
It is almost certain that Haydn never read the products of the literary Sturm und Drang: there is no evidence that he ever was an avid reader of fiction or poetry. However, many of his works written around 1770 are more intense and emotional than those from earlier or later periods. His output from those years is characterized by a fre?quent use of the "sad" or "dramatic" minor mode, a preference for either unison pas?sages or learned counterpoint (as opposed to the usual texture of melody and accom?paniment), themes using wide leaps, frequent syncopations, chromaticism and diminished seventh chords. In one word, Haydn was actively exploring what was out of the ordi?nary, witness his symphonies: Symphony No. 44 in e minor (Mourning), Symphony No. 45 in f-sharp minor (Farewell) or Symphony No. 52 in c minor, as well as
several of his keyboard sonatas and string quartets from the period. (It is interesting that this "musical Sturm und Drang was not limited to Haydn; the 17-year-old Mozart wrote his dramatic Symphony No. 25 in g minor, K. 183 in 1773, and even lesser com?posers, such as Vanhal or d'Ordonez, were writing dark-hued symphonies in minor keys around this time.
Symphony No. 49 is one of the earliest representatives of Haydn's Sturm und Drang style. Its traditional numbering, which dates from the 19th century, is incorrect and does not reflect its chronological position among Haydn's symphonies. Symphony Nos. 44-48, which precede it in the catalog, were written between 1772-73, that is, four or five years later. Symphony No. 49 is an "old-fashioned" work, adhering to the slow-fast-slow-fast scheme of the Baroque sonata da chiesa (church sonata), with one difference: the second slow movement was replaced by a minuet. This work is the last of seven Haydn symphonies to follow the sonata da chiesa pattern.
Another unusual feature of the present symphony is that the somber f-minor tonality is maintained in all four movements, from beginning to end. Only the brief Trio section of the minuet is in F Major.
The most Sturm-und-Drang-like parts of the work are the two fast movements. The second movement, "Allegro di molto," and the fourth movement, "Presto," have all the hallmarks of the style as described above. The first and third movements are in a seri?ous and contemplative mood that various writers have tried to explain by suggesting connections with either church services or theatrical performances, without being able to document any such connections. (The third-movement minuet is closely related to the analogous movement in Haydn's String Quartet Op. 20, No. 5 from 1772, which is also in f minor.)
The nickname "La passione," like the nicknames of many other Haydn sym?phonies, was not given by the composer. It appears in a manuscript copy made long after the work was composed. It may refer to a performance during Holy Week. It is amusing, however, that in another manu?script copy, the symphony has an entirely different heading: "Nel suo entusiasmo, il Quakero di bel'humore" (In his enthusiasm, the good-humoured Quaker), with the added observation, "This symphony serves as a companion to that of the English Philosopher by the same author." The other symphony is evidently Symphony No. 22 in E-flat Major, written in 1764, nicknamed "The Philosopher." In a 1990 study, musicol?ogist Elaine Sisman discussed moralizing Quaker figures in 18th-century European drama, and their possible connections with Haydn.
Haydn's Sturm und Drang period even?tually passed: in the mid-1770s he entered a new, more Classical phase of his stylistic evolution. Yet the Sturm und Drang years had enriched his music with a wider range of expressive devices that stayed with him for the rest of his life. There is no doubt that the years 1768-72 marked the first peak in Haydn's compositional career.
1768 was a bad year for Haydn, for his house in Eisenstadt was disastrously damaged by fire. On August 2, a very hot day, a fire broke out towards mid-day and took hold so rapidly that when it came, all help was too late. All the three streets of the little town were similarly affected, the houses blazing fiercely. The Council house, the Franciscan monastery, part of Monastery Row, the Church, and 141 houses among which was Haydn's -were burned down. Only 19 houses in the town were spared....
It took a long time for Haydn to recover from this stroke of ill fortune. It is said that he was in a terrible state of anguish as he stood amidst the smoking
ashes of his house looking for scorched scores. His biographer, Georg August Griesinger, wrote that "several Haydn operas as well as other compositions, of which unfortunately there were no copies, perished in the flames."
...The Prince, however showed great consideration to his valued Music Director and undertook the entire rebuilding of the house at his own expense.
from Christina Stadtlaender, Joseph Haydn ofEisenstadt (London, 1968)

Medusa Monodrama for Dramatic Soprano and String Orchestra
William Bolcom
Born May 28, 1938 in Seattle, Washington
Tonight's performance marks the UMS premiere of William Bokom's Medusa.
One of my great pleasures in composing is having had long associations with such superb artists as my close friends, Catherine Malfitano and Dennis Russell Davies, for whom I have written many times, singly and collectively. I have enjoyed an even longer productive friendship 43 years with poet-librettist Arnold Weinstein, who most recently has gained much-deserved praise for our A View from the Bridge, which recently completed its Metropolitan Opera run.
Weinstein is fluent in the many styles and moods of the English language, from the most elevated to the earthiest, and Medusa affords an opportunity to show his broad familiarity with classic Roman and Greek literature. His text conflates and mar?ries numerous Medusa mythological tales, juxtaposing them sometimes with a contem?poraneous, jazzy diction, in a way absolutely in the classical tradition.
I have tried to sail my musical boat according to his laid-out course a wild ride full of surprises affording Catherine Malfitano a real tour deforce as well as one for Maestro Davies's virtuoso strings. The listener will note a number of percussive, pitchless sounds drawn from this ensemble. Inspired as much by the ferocity of the Medusa legend as by its infinite pathos, the grand curve of the work traverses her early beauty, her horrifying transformation, and her death, which again leaves beauty in its wake.
Program note by William Bolcom.
One of the most innovative and eclectic conductors in the classical music world, Dennis Russell Davies has succeeded in challeng?ing and inspiring audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Davies has ventured into operatic, orches-
tral and even popu?lar forms of music as conductor, chamber musician and pianist to express his versa?tile musical agenda. Since 1980, he has lived in Germany but has maintained an active presence on the North American
scene as a regular guest conductor with the major orchestras and opera houses of New York and Chicago. Davies is currently in his last season as Chief Conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, continues as Chief Conductor of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra and Professor of Orchestral Conducting at the Salzburg Mozarteum, and concludes his tenure this season as Music Director of the American Composers
Orchestra after 25 years. In 2002, he begins his post as Chief Conductor of the Linz Opera, and Chief Conductor and Music Director of the Bruckner Orchestra Linz.
In his final season as Chief Conductor of the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, he continued conducting and recording subscription concerts at Vienna's Musikverein and Konzerthaus and touring with the Orchestra. His work as Chief Conductor of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra includes the fourth year of a 10-year project of performing and recording all 107 Haydn symphonies in partnership with Mercedes-Benz. In February 2002, he conducted the American Composers Orchestra in Carnegie Hall, celebrating Philip Glass's 65th birthday with the world premiere of Glass's Symphony No. 6, and returned to Carnegie Hall in April to celebrate the American Composers Orchestra's 25th anniversary and his final concert as Music Director of the organization that he co-founded in 1977. He also guests with the Danish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, and returned in the summer of 2002 to the Lincoln Center Festival, where he is collaborating with Bill T. Jones in a new production of Lou Harrison's The Young Caesar.
During Davies's extensive opera career, he has been the music directorconductor for many important productions. They include: Akhnaton, Achim Freyer director, Stuttgart 1984; Fidelio, Yuri Lubimov director, Stuttgart 1986; Lulu, Yuri Lubimov director, Chicago 1987, and Willy Decker director, Paris 1998 (named the Grand Prix of Theatre and Music Critics Union "Best Opera Performance of the Year"); Four Saints in Three Acts, Robert Wilson director, Houston, 1996; The Rise and Fall of the City of Mahagonny, Peter Zadek director, Salzburg, 1998; White Raven, Robert Wilson director, Lisbon, 1998 and Lincoln Center Festival New York, 2001; and A View From the Bridge, Frank Galati director, Chicago, 1999. Davies's tenure as General-
musikdirektor of the Stuttgart Opera, from 1980 to 1987, is regarded as one of the most significant periods in that theater's distin?guished history. In addition to conducting highly regarded and sometimes even con?troversial productions of the standard reper?tory by Mozart, Beethoven, Weber, Wagner, Verdi and Puccini, Davies solidified the Stuttgart Opera's reputation for adventurous programming by introducing several pre?mieres on this stage. Such works include Hans Werner Henze's The English Cat, Philip Glass's Akhnaten, and William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence, Songs of Experience. His diverse repertory is testimony to his commitment to the artistic growth and development of not only each organization he has led, but also the living composers with whom he has collaborated. His close personal friendships with composers Luciano Berio, William Bolcom, John Cage, Philip Glass, Lou Harrison, Hans Werner Henze and Francis Thome (with whom he formed the American Composers Orchestra) have been an impor?tant catalyst for enriching concert and operatic repertory in general. Extensive collaborations throughout his career include ones with Laurie Anderson, Keith Jarrett, Cab Calloway and Jan Garbarek.
Davies's prolific recordings, as conductor as well as pianist, number well over 60 and having received numerous awards, can be found on many labels. His newest releases on the ECM label are Flux, an all Erkki-Sven Tiiiir recording with the Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra and John Cage's The Seasons with the American Composers Orchestra, which won the Japan Record Academy Awards 2000 first prize in the Nonesuch, he has recorded many works of Philip Glass, including Symphonies Nos. 2,3 and 5.
Davies has had successful tenures as the General Music Director of the City of Bonn (Germany), Principal ConductorClassical Music Program Director of the Philadelphia
Orchestra at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Principal Conductor of the Brooklyn Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. In addi?tion to his North American orchestral guest conducting appearances, Davies has guest conducted some of the most prestigious orchestras in Europe including the Berlin Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic, Gewandhaus Orchestra and the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande.
Tonight's performance marks Dennis Russell Davies's UMS debut.
New York-born Catherine Malfitano is acclaimed for her commanding vocalism, superb musicianship, elegant stage pres?ence and riveting dramatic abili?ties. Renowned as a unique music theater performer, Ms. Malfitano has appeared at all the world's leading opera houses including the Metropolitan Opera, the Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Vienna State Opera, La Scala, the Paris Opera, and the Royal Opera Covent Garden. Her Emmy-award winning portrayal of Tosca, broadcast live from the actual Roman settings of the opera, was seen by more than one billion viewers worldwide. Catherine Malfitano's stage repertoire of more than 60 roles spans the entirety of operatic history. Her interpretations extend from Monteverdi's Poppea and Erisbe in Cavalli's L'Ormindo to Annina in Menotti's Saint ofBleecker Street, from Gluck's Euridice to Polly Peachum in Weill's Threepenny Opera; and Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro and both Zerlina and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni to Cleopatra in Samuel Barber's Antony and Cleopatra.
A champion of 20th century music, she has sung in the world premieres of Carlisle Floyd's Bilby's Doll, Conrad Susa's Transfor-
mations, Thomas Pasatieri's Washington Square and William Bolcom's A View From the Bridge and McTeague.
Throughout her career, Ms. Malfitano has worked with the world's leading con?ductors including Daniel Barenboim, James Levine, Zubin Mehta, Wolfgang Sawallisch, Christoph von Dohnanyi, and Dennis Russell Davies. Her collaborations with premiere directors such as Robert Altman, Jean-Pierre Ponnelle, Luc Bondy and Nikolaus Lehnhoff, have produced many of the most memorable operatic events of our time.
Catherine Malfitano begins the 200203 season with her first performances as Minnie
in La Fanciulla del West at Los Angeles Opera opposite Placido Domingo and conducted by Simon Young. She will repeat the role of Beatrice in Bolcom's A View From the Bridge in the work's Metropolitan Opera premiere conducted
by Dennis Russell Davies. She will sing her first performances of both Poulenc's La Voix Humaine and Weill's Seven Deadly Sins with Cincinnati Opera to conclude the season.
In recital, she has appeared in San Francisco, Chicago, New York, Toronto, Washington, DC, Houston, Zurich, Vienna, Barcelona, Geneva, Brussels, Bonn and at the Salzburg Festival and London's Wigmore Hall. She also appeared in a joint all-Weill recital with William Bolcom and Joan Morris in Toronto. In May 2001 Ms. Malfitano made a special set of appearances at Joe's Pub, part of the New York Public Theater, in a cabaret recital. This live performance has been issued on VAI Records.
Among her recordings is Salome on the DeccaLondon label with Christoph von
Dohnanyi and the Vienna Philharmonic. Her Rome Tosca with Placido Domingo is avail?able on Teldec video and compact disc. Other recordings include Romeo et Juliette with Alfredo Kraus on EMI, Rossini's Stabat Mater conducted by Riccardo Muti, Monteverdi's Poppea, and William Bolcom's A View From the Bridge. On video, Ms. Malfitano appears at the George London Gala from Vienna and at the Metropolitan Opera galas cele?brating the company's centennial in 1983, and James Levine's 25th anniversary in 1996.
In addition to Ms. Malfitano's full opera schedule she also makes time for recitals, orchestral concerts, and cabaret performances, teaching voice privately, giving master classes in the US and England and teaching a singeractor course at DePaul University in Chicago, where she is a visiting professor.
Tonight's performance marks Catherine Malfitano's UMS debut.
In the spring of 1997, the internation?ally celebrated Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra (SCO) returned for its 12th North American tour since its acclaimed debut on this continent in 1950. This was the first time that the orches?tra appeared in the US with Dennis Russell Davies as its Chief Conductor. Having led the orchestra on a North American tour in its 50th anniversary year, Mr. Davies subse?quently was named Chief Conductor of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra in August 1995.
This world-renowned orchestra has received tremendous critical acclaim during its tours of North America, Europe and the Far East and the success of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra is reflected by invitations to perform throughout the major music capitals of the world as well as in such pres?tigious festivals as the Salzburg, Edinburgh, Colmar, and Prague Spring.
Founded in 1945 by Karl Munchinger a few short months after the end of World War II, Munchinger and the SCO created a huge sensation when they made their Paris debut in 1949, as the first German orchestra to perform there since the war. Following this first major international success, the orchestra was adopted as musical ambassador of goodwill, making post-war pioneering visits to many countries, including the first visit to the People's Republic of China by a German orchestra in 1977.
In January 1987, after holding the post for 42 years, Karl Munchinger relinquished the artistic directorship of the orchestra. Since that time, the orchestra has worked with internationally respected conductors such as Trevor Pinnock, Helmuth Rilling, Iona Brown, Leon Fleisher, Vaclav Neumann, and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski. Particularly notable were the orchestra's performances of 22 symphonies by Joseph Haydn in eight concerts during the European Musical Festival Stuttgart in August 1988, conducted by Ferdinand Leitner, and a series of nine concerts devoted to the early orchestral works of Mozart at the same festival in 1991, under the direction of Dennis Russell Davies.
The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra has made recordings on numerous labels in recent years and, under Davies, has developed a close relationship with the recording label ECM New Series, for whom the orchestra has recorded two newly released albums: Caris Mere and Dolorosa. Caris Mere features works by Giya Kancheli with soloists Jan Garbarek (soprano saxophone), Kim Kashkashian (viola), Eduard Brunner (clarinet), and Maacha Deubner (voice); and Dolorosa features Shostakovich's Chamber Symphony (an arrangement by Rudolph Barshai of the String Quartet No. 8), Alfred Schnittke's Trio Sonata (arranged by Yuri Bashmet), and Peteris Vasks's Musica Dolorosa. Released in 1996, ECM's recording of Mozart piano concerti,
with Keith Jarrett as soloist, has received much critical interest. The Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra is also recognized for the wealth of recordings it has made on the LondonDecca label. A large part of the chamber orchestra repertoire is available, including its recording of Bach's St. Matthew Passion, which was awarded the prestigious Grand Prix du Disque. The SCO is currently
in the midst of a "Haydn Decade", during which they will perform and record all 104 Haydn symphonies.
Tonight's performance marks the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestras second appearance under UMS auspices. The ensemble made their UMS debut in February 1990 under the baton of Maestro Leon Fleisher.
