he University of Michigan joins the University Musical Society (UMS) in welcoming you to its 125th Anniversary Season. We are proud of the wonderful partnership between our two organizations and of the role of the University as co-sponsor of several events on this season's calendar. In addition to
reflecting the artistic beauty and passion that are integral to the human experience, these jointly sponsored events are also wonderful opportunities for University of Michigan students and faculty to
learn about the creative process and the sources of inspiration that motivate artists and scholars.
Several superb productions will result from our partnership. The current season includes an exciting collaboration of UMS, the University of Michigan Museum of Art, and the University's Center for Russian and East European Studies. This alliance is creating a multidisciplinary festival, Celebrating St. Petersburg, 300 Years of Cultural Brilliance. Among the brilliant offerings in the series is Alexander Pushkin's Boris Godunov, directed by Declan Donnellan, a Royal Shakespeare Company alumnus. It will be performed in Russian with English supertitles. The University and UMS will also jointly pres?ent an authentic Elizabethan production by Shakespeare's Globe Theatre: the witty comedy Twelfth Night, which will have a week of performances in the Michigan Union Ballroom. The historically accurate
production is presented in association with the 100th Anniversary Celebration of the Michigan Union.
We are delighted to welcome UMS back to Hill Auditorium in time to celebrate its 125th Anniversary with concerts and revelry between January 17-19. Some of the high?lights of the year will include a festive gala dinner full of surprises on January 17, and a rare appearance of the marvelous Orchestre Revolutionnaire et Romantique and the Monteverdi Choir on January 18. The weekend will conclude with the Jazz Divas Summit on January 19, as the University and UMS jointly commemorate Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
I want to thank the faculty and staff of the University of Michigan and the University Musical Society for their hard work and dedication in making our partnership a success. The University of Michigan is pleased to support the Univer?sity Musical Society during this exhilarating 0304 season, and we share the goal of making our co-presentations academic and cultural events that benefit the university community and the broadest possible constituency.
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
hank you for joining us for this performance during UMS's historic _ 125th season. We appreciate your support of the performing arts and of UMS, and we hope that we'll see you at more of our programs during this milestone season. Check the complete listing of UMS's 0304 events beginning on p. 27 and on our web-
site at UMS is the oldest university-related per?forming arts presenting organization in the United States. From its founding in 1879 as the Choral Union under
U-M Professor Henry Simmons Frieze to the current day, UMS has sought to bring to the community the very best in the performing arts from around the world. When I think about how UMS has been able to pursue and carry out this commit?ment to excellence for more than a century, six factors come to mind:
1) The incredible support of you, the audience. I place at the very top of this list the outstanding support UMS has received over its entire history from the people of Michigan and northern Ohio. By your faithful attendance and generous financial support -one of our most generous patrons has been a Choral Union Series subscriber for over 60 years -UMS has not only thrived locally but has become one of the leading presenters in the US. Internationally renowned artists and ensembles often tell us following their tours in the US that the Ann Arbor audi-
ence was the best on the tour -in its size, sophistication, and enthusiastic response. Thank you!
2) Our unique relationship with the University of Michigan. Years ago, enlightened leaders of both UM and UMS determined that UMS should be an independent organization, but one with a special affiliation with the University. This unique relationship has enabled us to develop many mutually beneficial programs that serve both the University and the larger community. While UMS does not receive general fund or student-fee support, we have been able to seek and receive special support from the University when we have faced an unanticipated challenge or an extraordinary artistic opportunity. Those who study uni?versitypresenter partnerships have told us that ours with U-M is the most effective in the US. To our most significant, long-time partner, we say thank you!
3) Abundant, high-quality performance venues. How fortunate that we have in a community of our size so many remark?able venues for our performances, includ?ing Hill and Rackham Auditoriums, Power Center, Mendelssohn Theatre, Michigan Theater, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, EMU Convocation Center, and the others we use now and have used in the past. Such a diverse array of facilities enables us to provide an appropriate venue for whatever artistic genre we are present?ing. Please join us for the weekend events January 17-19 when UMS returns to the renovated and restored Hill Auditorium.
4) A century of bold impresarios. We need only to be reminded of former UMS President Charles Sink's ability to convince the most famous singer in the world, Enrico Caruso, to perform in Hill Auditorium in 1919 to appreciate the imagination, negoti?ating skills, and chutzpah that characterized the impresarios who led UMS through its first century. The last of this special group was Mr. Gail Rector, who led UMS with great distinction until his retirement in 1987 and who has recently returned from the south to live in Ann Arbor. When you see him at our concerts, please take a moment to thank him for his contributions to UMS. Gail and his predecessors continue to inspire the current UMS team every day as we recall their single-minded determina?tion to bring the very best to Ann Arbor, no matter what!
5) Outstanding volunteers. Put quite simply, UMS could not exist were it not for nearly 700 volunteers who serve UMS now and for the thousands of others who preceded them over the years. Each member of the 150-voice Choral Union, 300-member UMS Usher Corps, 39-member Teacher Advisory Committee, 10-member Student Intern Corps, 46-member Advisory Committee, 63-member Senate, and 34-member Board of Directors is a volun?teer, giving their time and talents to UMS. We are deeply grateful for their dedication and service.
6) Remarkable staff. I am privileged to work with unusually talented, creative, hardworking, and loyal staff colleagues. Frequent turnover is the norm for arts organizations, yet the team of UMS department heads has an average tenure with UMS of 11 years. This is remarkable. Each member of this team -Sara Billmann, Ben Johnson, John Kennard, Michael Kondziolka, and Susan McClanahan -has achieved a measure of national leader?ship in his or her respective areas of expertise. The remainder of the staff is comprised of equally dedicated colleagues who share the management team's commit?ment to serving the mission of UMS. We are pleased to recognize the contributions of UMS's longest serving staff member, Sally Cushing, when she celebrates her 35th anniversary with UMS this fall.
Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or problems. The best place to begin is with our Ticket Office at 734.764.2538. 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, please send me an email message at or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
'elcome to the 0304 season! In the University Musical Society's 125th season, there is much to celebrate. We can look forward to the St. Petersburg celebration with Valery Gergiev and the Kirov Orchestra, the Globe Theatre's pro?duction of Twelfth Night, and the Israel Philharmonic among many. Most impor-
tantly, Saturday, January 17, 2004 brings an exciting concert that celebrates UMS's return to Hill Auditorium and 125 years of UMS history. Our tradition of bringing
excellent music, theater, and dance to the southeast Michigan community has grown to include education for the whole com?munity -school children, university students, and adults -and the creation of new and exciting works such as those that have come to us through the Royal Shakespeare Company.
The rich cultural history of UMS is one I know you want to continue. Many of you made extraordinary efforts to ensure our future by making an additional gift, or an increased gift, after you learned of our budgetary challenges last spring. We greatly appreciate your support, which helped to keep us on solid financial ground.
I hope you will continue to keep UMS high on your list of philanthropic priorities. If you haven't made a gift before, or haven't made a gift for some while, I hope you will consider doing so. In addition to your annual gift, you may be able to provide for UMS in a more substantial and longer-lasting way, with a gift to endowment or through a trust or bequest arrangement. Susan McClanahan, Director of Develop?ment, would be pleased to talk with you about ways of making your gift that will benefit you as well as UMS. Remember, your gift to UMS ensures the continuation of the brilliant programming and educa?tional activities for future generations.

hrough an uncompromising commit?ment to Presentation, Education, j_ and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) __ serves Michigan audiences by bring?ing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live , performing arts world. Over its 125 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted com?munity has placed UMS in a league of interna?tionally-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 commitment 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
Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through educational endeavors, com?missioning 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 70 performances 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 and Ypsilanti.
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 organij zation that supports itself from ticket sales, j corporate and individual contributions, foun'. dation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
' hroughout its 125-year history, the UMS Choral Union has performed with many of the world's distin?guished 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 performances of large-scale works for chorus and orchestra. Eleven 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 Meadow Brook for subscription performances of Stravinsky's Symphony of Psalms, John Adams' Harmonium, Beethoven's Symphony No. 9, Orff's Carmina Burana, Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe and Brahms'
Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition. Members share one common passion--a love of the choral art.
Ein deutsches Requiem, and has recorded Tchaikovsky's The Snow Maiden with the orchestra for Chandos, Ltd.
In 1995, the Choral Union began accepting invitations to appear with other major regional orchestras, and soon added Britten's War Requiem, Elgar's The Dream of Gerontius, the Berlioz Requiem and other masterworks to its repertoire. During the 9697 season, the Choral Union again expanded its scope to include per?formances with the Grand Rapids Symphony, joining with them in a rare presentation of Mahler's Symphony No. 8 (Symphony of a Thousand).
Led by interim conductor Jerry Blackstone, the Choral Union will open its current season with performances of Verdi's Requiem with th DSO in September. In December the chorus
will present its 125th series of annual perform?ances of Handel's Messiah. The Choral Union's season will conclude with a performance of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience in the newly renovated Hill Auditorium.
The Choral Union's 0203 season included 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. The Choral Union's sea?son concluded in March with a pair of magnifi?cent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accompanied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufle's mystical Requiem, accompanied by internation?ally renowned organist Janice Beck.
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 theater favorites with Erich Kunzel and the DSO at Meadow Brook. The 72-voice Concert Choir drawn from the full chorus has performed Durufle's Requiem, the Langlais Messe Solennelte, 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. Comprised of singers from Michigan, Ohio and Canada, members of the Choral Union share one common passion -a love of the choral art. For more informa?tion about membership in the UMS Choral Union, e-mail or call 734.763.8997.
The 0304 UMS season will include performances by the world's celebrated music, dance and theater artists in 11 venues in Ann Arbor and Ypsilanti.
Hill Auditorium
he 18-month $38.6-million dollar renovations
to Hill began on May 13, 2002 overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc., and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. Originally built in 1913, current renovations will update Hill's infrastructure and restore much of the interior to its original splendor. Exterior renovations will include the reworking of brick paving and stone retaining wall areas, restoration of the south entrance plaza, the reworking of the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improvements to landscaping.
Interior renovations will include the demo?lition of lower-level spaces to ready the area for future improvements, the creation of additional restrooms, the improvement of barrier-free cir?culation by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement of main-level seating to increase patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replace?ment of theatrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
When it re-opens in January 2004, Hill Auditorium will seat 3,540. 7BurtonWebCam.html

Power Center
he Power Center for the Performing Arts was
bred from a realization that the University of Michigan had no adequate proscenium-stage theater 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 built 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 the?ater." The Powers were immediately interested, realizing that state and federal government were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theater.
Opening in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote), the Power Center achieves the seemingly contradictory combination of providing a soaring interior space with a unique level of intimacy. Architectural features include two large spiral staircases leading from the orchestra level to the balcony and the well-known mirrored glass panels on the exterior. No seat in the Power Center is more than 72 feet from the stage. The lobby of the Power Center features two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes by Pablo Picasso.
The Power Center seats approximately 1,400 people.
Rackham Auditorium
ifty years ago, chamber music concerts in Ann Arbor were a relative rarity, presented in an assortment of venues including University Hall (the precursor to Hill Auditorium), Hill Auditorium, Newberry Hall and the current home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will established the Horace H. Rackham and Mary A. Rackham Fund, which subsequently awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only
to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School which houses Rackham Auditorium, but also to establish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift, which is still considered one of the most ambi?tious ever given to higher-level education, is the fact that neither of the Rackhams ever attended the University of Michigan.
Designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci, Rackham Auditorium was quickly recognized as the ideal venue for chamber music. In 1941, the Musical Society presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York performing three concerts in as many days, and the current Chamber Arts Series was born in 1963. Chamber music audiences and artists alike appreciate the intimacy, beauty and fine acoustics of the 1,129-seat auditorium, which has been the location for hundreds of chamber music concerts throughout the years.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5, 1928 at the peak of the vaudeville movie palace era. Designed by Maurice Finkel, the 1,710-seat theater cost around $600,000 when it was first built. As was the custom of the day, the theater was equipped to host both film and live stage events, with a full-size stage, dressing rooms, an orchestra pit, and the Barton Theater Organ. At its opening the theater was acclaimed as the best of its kind in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986. In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addition, which also included expanded restroom facili?ties for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000 and the balcony and backstage restorations have been completed.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
In June 1950, Father Leon Kennedy was appointed 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 to more than 2,800 today. The present church seats 900 people and has ample free parking. In 1994 St. Francis purchased a splendid 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 contemplation of sacred a cap-pella choral music and early music ensembles.
Crisler Arena
Crisler Arena, home to the Michigan Wolverine basketball teams, stands as a tribute to the great Herbert O. "Fritz" Crisler, Michigan's third all-time winning football coach. Crisler served 10 years as Michigan's football coach (1938-1947) and 27 years as athletic director (1941-1968) of the University. The arena was designed by Dan Dworksky under the architec?tural firm of K.C. Black & C.L. Dworsky and opened in 1968. While serving as a site of Big Ten Conference championship events, Crisler has also played host to popular acts such as Pearl Jam, Bill Cosby, the Grateful Dead, and even Elvis Presley during his final concert tour. In 2002, UMS presented its first concert in Crisler Arena, the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra Christmas Concert. The popular ensemble returns for a repeat performance on Friday, December 5.
The facility has a capacity of 13,609.

Tracing Astor "teaasata-sr--,
Born in 1955 in Kharkov, Russia
Leonid Desyatnikov was born in 1955 in Kharkov and graduated from the Leningrad Conservatory in 1978. His music has been per?formed at many major European festivals including Lockenhaus, Gstaad (Switzerland), and at Sviatoslav Richter's December Evenings. His symphonic piece Sketches for Sunset has been performed by leading German orchestras including the Deutsches Simphonie Orchester Berlin and the Symphony Orchestra of Gewandhaus (Leipzig).
Of particular popularity throughout the world are his transcriptions of works by Astor Piazzolla made at the request of Gidon Kremer, with whom Desyatnikov has a close collabora?tion; one of these works, the tango-operetta Maria de Buenos Aires was nominated for a Grammy award.
In the composer's own words:
Tracing Astor follows the traces of Piazzolla's piece Milonga per tre -but not only this piece. To be honest, my "Milonga" limps slightly, since it is mainly in 54 time.
Tracing Astor is an attempt to suggest and reflect the impressions aroused by the Argentinean master's music, sizing it up as cool-headedly as possible. I had to rein in what may be the most attractive sides of the "New Tango" style -its pathos and hyper-sexuality. I'd call this piece's humor "Piazzolla extra-dry."

Piano Trio No. 2 in e minor, Op. 67
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg
Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
Russian composers had a tradition of com?memorating the departed with piano trios: Tchaikovsky wrote his piano trio in memory of Nikolai Rubinstein, Rachmaninoff his eligiaque in memory of Tchaikovsky, and Anton Arensky composed his celebrated trio in memory of the cellist Karl Davydov. Shostakovich might have been thinking about these antecedents when, upon learning about the death of his best friend Ivan Ivanovich Sollertinsky, he turned to this intimate chamber-music genre (to which he had contributed one other work in his entire life, a briefer essay dating from his youth). The two earlier composers had written musical eulogies to teachers and mentor figures who had been significantly older than they. Sollertinsky was only four years Shostakovich's senior, but he nevertheless played the role of a mentor to the composer: a musicologist of an extraordinarily broad knowledge of the reper?toire, he introduced his friend to many master?pieces (those of Gustav Mahler in particular). Sollertinsky died of a heart attack in February 1944, at the age of 42. "I have no words with which to express the pain that racks my entire being," a devastated Shostakovich wrote to their mutual friend Isaak Glikman.
There are sketches for a Shostakovich piano trio from late 1943, but these were not used in the work we know today. The e-minor trio took what for Shostakovich was an unusually long time to write; he spent much of the spring on the first movement alone, completing the other three during the summer, at the retreat of the Union of Soviet Composers in the village of Ivanovo.
Unlike the Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff trios, which follow a different scheme, Shostakovich adhered to the classical four-movement layout of the trio (as had Arensky). This allowed the composer to write music that wasn't tragic or elegiac all the way through, but
instead paid tribute to Sollertinsky's complex personality under many of its aspects. After all, the trio moves from a sad and mysterious opening to a wild and ferocious scherzo, from there to a lament in the form of a passacaglia (set of variations on an unchanging bass line), followed by the most famous part of the work, the "Jewish" finale. The funeral includes remi?niscences of the joyful moments experienced, but most importantly, it shows that joy and pain are inseparable and, as always in Shostakovich, laughter can turn into a bitter grimace any time and without warning.
The cello opens the work with its theme played in harmonics in an extremely high regis?ter. This eerie music, which seems to come from a great distance, later gives way to some angry and powerful outbursts. The second-movement scherzo seems to allude to Sollertinsky's sense of humor and the many happy moments the two friends had shared. The slow passacaglia is somber and mournful, and it is followed without pause by the dance finale. However, this is obviously not a happy ending. Much of the musical material is distort?ed klezmer (Jewish folk music), where the cheerful rhythms are combined with painful dissonant intervals in the melody. It is no coin?cidence that Shostakovich started to be drawn to Jewish music during the years of World War II and the Holocaust. One of Shostakovich's favorite composition students, Benjamin Fleischmann, had died in 1941 during the siege of Leningrad. Shostakovich was so fond of Fleischmann that he decided to complete the unfinished opera his student had left behind, Rothschild's Violin, after a short story by Chekhov. The memory of Fleischmann proba?bly played an important role in the shaping of the finale, in which the Jewish dance melodies sometimes take on a positively tragic tone. In addition, reminiscences of the earlier move?ments make the emotional content of the work even more ambivalent, and nothing seems to be resolved when the trio ends with a few broken chords and other isolated musical figures.
Shostakovich himself played the piano part when the trio received its world premiere in
Leningrad on November 14,1944. His col?leagues were Dmitri Zyganov (violin) and Sergei Shirinsky (cello).
Program note by Peter Laki.
String Quartet No. 3 in e-flat minor, Op. 30
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky
Born May 7, 1840 in Kamsko-Votkinsk,
Vyatka province Died November 6, 1893 in St. Petersburg
Tchaikovsky wrote three string quartets, all between 1871 and 1876. Along with the two quartets of Borodin, these were the first impor?tant contributions to the quartet genre in Russia. Tchaikovsky's first two quartets were premiered by the Moscow String Quartet, led by the Prague-born Ferdinand Laub, the com?poser's colleague on the faculty of the Moscow Conservatory. After Laub's premature death in 1875, Tchaikovsky wrote his third quartet in his friend's memory.
The elegiac tone of String Quartet No. 3 anticipates that of Tchaikovsky's Piano Trio (1882), written to commemorate another friend and colleague, the pianist and composer Nikolai Rubinstein. Tchaikovsky chose a most unusual key, e-flat minor, for the main tonality of the quartet. The six flats (lowered notes) of that key produce a dark sound quality throughout most of the work.
The first movement opens with an extended slow introduction whose gloomy tone continues in the allegro moderato. After an extensive development and a dramatic high point where all four instruments reach triple forte in their highest registers, the slow introduction unexpect?edly returns for a soft and wistful conclusion.
The second movement is a quick scherzo in the much brighter key of B-flat Major, but notes borrowed from the minor mode frequent?ly cast a dark shadow over the lively rhythmic patterns. The middle section is dominated by a viola melody of a wide range and great emotional
intensity; the elfin scherzo material subsequently returns.
The third movement is a funeral march in a somber e-flat minor in which the muted strings play stark chordal progressions. The next section, reminiscent of chant, suggests an Orthodox funeral service according to some commentators. A new idea, more lyrical in nature, is juxtaposed with the funeral music. A return of the chant-like theme concludes the movement.
The finale, in a bright E-flat Major, seems to be inspired by Ukrainian folk music, similarly to Symphony No. 2 (1873). It is a brisk, dance-like movement in which the earlier tragedy gives way to happier feelings. There is only one moment of hesitancy after which the music bounces back with renewed energy, and the work ends with an exuberant coda.
Program note by Peter Laki.
. ne of the world's leading string quartets, the St. Petersburg String Quartet was founded as the Leningrad Quartet by Alia Aranovskaya and Leonid Shukaev, both graduates of the Leningrad Conservatory. The Quartet blazed a trail through international chamber music competi?tions, winning First Prize at the All-Soviet Union String Quartet Competition, the Silver Medal and a Special Prize at the Tokyo International Competition of Chamber Ensembles, First Prize and both Special Prizes at the Vittorio Gui International Competition for Chamber Ensembles in Florence, Italy, and First Prize and the "Grand Prix Musica Viva" at the International Competition for Chamber Ensembles in Melbourne, Australia.
When the city of Leningrad resumed its his?toric name, the Quartet changed its name to the St. Petersburg String Quartet. The Quartet has continued its ascendancy, building a reputa?tion of worldwide proportions including a Grammy nomination, "Best Record" honors in both Stereo Review and Gramophone magazines,
and the Chamber Music AmericaWQXR Prize for "Best CD of 2001." The Quartet held the respected position of Quartet-in-Residence at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music from 1996 until Spring 2003.
In 2003, the St. Petersburg String Quartet proudly commemorates the 300th anniversary of its namesake city and will be performing around the globe in events honoring the arts of St. Petersburg. These festive occasions, however, are just one piece of the renowned quartet's busy season. The group premiered Rhapsody for String Quartet and Guitar by Georgian compos?er Zurab Nadarejshvili (co-commissioned with guitarist Paul Galbraith) at Stanford University; has over 50 concerts scheduled across the US; appeared in London and Manchester, England as well as Berlin and Wiesbaden, Germany; and toured Italy and Holland.
Audiences from Toronto to Tokyo, from Lithuania to London and in music halls across the US give the St. Petersburg Quartet standing ovations. Recently, the St. Petersburg completed recording the complete works of Tchaikovsky for string quartet on Dorian, which follows the release of the complete Shostakovich cycle on Hyperion, a disc of Prokofiev's two quartets
and Nadarejshvili's String Quartet No. 1 and Glazunov's String Quartet No. 5 and his appeal?ing Novelettes on Delos.
Since 1999, Alia Aranovskaya, Leonid Shukaev and Maxim Mogilevsky have performed together as "The Brahms Trio." The Los Angeles Times called their debut "noble, heroic, bold, intimate, prayerful, ineffable."
This evening's performance marks the St. " Petersburg String Quartet's UMS debut. i
axim Mogilevsky was the last pupil of Anaida Sumbatian, teacher of the legendary Vladimir Ashkenazy. At 13 years old he debuted with the Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra. In 1990 a
Tchaikovsky Scholarship allowed him to study at The Juilliard School with Bella Davidovich. Mr. Mogilevsky received the "Angel Award" at the 1997 Edinburgh Festival. He made his US debut in Los Angeles on the "Gold Medal Series" at Ambassador Auditorium, Pasadena. He has appeared as soloist under Maestros Seiji Ozawa, Valery Gergiev and Gerard Schwarz. His per?formances have included the White Nights Festival of St. Petersburg, the Los Angeles Philharmonic Festival at the Hollywood Bowl, the Ravinia Festival, and the Cliburn Concert Series.

In the traditional classroom of Music 101, Russian music in the 19th century is usually divided into two factions: the nationalists and the "Westernizers." The first group was repre?sented by the "Five," also known as the "Mighty Handful" (Mussorgsky, Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin, Balakirev, and Cui), while the other group was led by Tchaikovsky.
Life, however, is more complex than text?books would have it. The separation between those orientations was by no means always rigid. In fact, Tchaikovsky at one point came particularly close to the group of the "Five." That was when Mily Balakirev (1837-1910) took him under his wing, as he had done earlier with Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky. Balakirev was only a few years older than Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky, or Rimsky, yet he had an acute critical mind and a charisma that made him the unofficial leader of his generation. Although he composed a great deal himself, he was far more important as a catalyst who inspired others and prodded them to write the works he himself was incapable of writing.
Tchaikovsky first came into Balakirev's orbit in January 1868, when the latter visited Moscow to attend the concerts given by Hector Berlioz. Eager to be accepted by the St. Petersburg group, Tchaikovsy sought Balakirev's support and, although he was a conservatory graduate, he wanted to see what he could learn from this crackpot genius. For his part, Balakirev wanted to win Tchaikovsky over to his own circle of proteges.
During this period, Tchaikovsky studied Balakirev's collection of Russian folksongs and arranged two dozen of them for piano duet. He also sent his symphonic poem Fatum to Balakirev, who conducted a performance in St. Petersburg and then proceeded to tear it to
shreds in a letter to the composer. (Tchaikovsky later destroyed the score of Fatum, but after his death it was reconstructed from the orchestral parts.)
Balakirev next suggested that Tchaikovsky tackle an orchestral piece based on Romeo and Juliet and gave him some fairly precise indica?tions on how to go about the project. (He him?self had been inspired by Shakespeare to write a King Lear overture shortly before.) Balakirev even gave his friend the four measures he want?ed the piece to start with, as well as a structural outline, complete with a sequence of themes, modulation plan, and other technical detail. Tchaikovsky didn't use the opening measures, but in other respects he followed the advice rather closely, at least as far as we can tell from his letters, where he freely acknowledged his debt. He sent his mentor the themes of his pieces for approval, something that didn't come easily to Balakirev: "The first theme is not at all to my taste," he declared. However, he found the great love theme "simply delightful."
I play it often, and I want very much to kiss you for it.... When I play [it] then I imagine you are lying naked in your bath and that Artot-Padilla herself is washing your tummy with hot lather from scented soap.
But Balakirev couldn't help adding some criticism even here:
There's just one thing I'll say against this theme; there's little in it of inner, spiritual love, and only a passionate physical languor (with even a slightly Italian hue) whereas Romeo and Juliet are decidedly not Persian lovers, but Europeans.
Tchaikovsky was careful not to show Balakirev the entire work until he had heard it as written. After the March 1870 premiere, however, he followed up on the criticism. He threw out the theme that Balakirev didn't like, wrote a new introduction, and revised the development and the coda. He now sent it to Balakirev, who shared it with his circle. The
influential critic Vladimir Stasov, a central fig?ure in that circle, exclaimed: "There were five of you; now you are six!" This judgment was pre?mature, however, for Tchaikovsky was to follow his own artistic path. As for the members of the "Five," even their association loosened after Balakirev's influence began to decrease in the 1870s. By the time Tchaikovsky returned to Romeo and Juliet in 1880, he was a mature com?poser who, although always sensitive to criti?cism, was no longer dependent on advice. He undertook some further cutting and pasting on his own, resulting in the final form of what is universally considered his first masterpiece.
The Overture-Fantasy begins with a musi?cal portrait of Friar Laurence a Russian Friar Laurence, one might add, since the slow chorale melody is redolent of Russian Orthodox church music. A brief transition leads to a stormy alle?gro theme evoking the feud of the Montagues and the Capulets through the rapid alternations of the string and wind sections. The secondary subject is the love theme that made such a deep impression on Balakirev. The development leads to a climactic point where the "feud" music is combined with the Friar Laurence theme, played fortissimo by the brass. In the recapitulation, the love theme is further altered and its hidden motivic connections with the "feud" music are revealed. Finally, the love theme is restated in a tragic tone as the lovers' fate is sealed. The sadness of this passage antici?pates the end of Symphony No. 6 -the last music Tchaikovsky ever wrote -in melodic shape, the repeated notes in the accompaniment, and even the key (b minor). But whereas Tchaikovsky ended Symphony No. 6 in a quadruple pianissimo, in Romeo and Juliet he interrupted the love melody to conclude with a few dry and merciless fortissimo chords.
'The Belgian soprano Desiree Artot was the only woman with whom Tchaikovsky had ever been in love. He was devastated when she married the Spanish baritone Mariano Padilla y Ramos. This happened shortly before the composi?tion of Romeo and Juliet.
Symphony No. 9 in E-flat Major, Op. 70
Dmitri Shostakovich
Born September 25, 1906 in St. Petersburg
Died August 9, 1975 in Moscow
Does a symphony number nine always have to be a Ninth Symphony In 1945, this question was debated in the highest artistic and political circles in the Soviet Union. Some members of those circles were plainly disappointed when Dmitri Shostakovich, the greatest symphonic composer in the country, failed to deliver the monumental choral work they felt they had every right to expect after the end of World War II. A grandiose "Ode to Joy" in honor of the victorious Red Army seemed to be in order (and maybe on order, too).
Yet Shostakovich was unable or unwilling (or possibly both) to write such a piece. The words of Testimony, the famous but not entirely trustworthy book of Shostakovich memoirs published by Solomon Volkov, definitely have a ring of truth here: "I couldn't write an apotheo?sis to Stalin. I just couldn't." And we know that he did try, but the solemn Choral Ninth never got off the ground.
Instead, we now have a Ninth that is cheerful to the point of sounding comical and -this is what the official critics couldn't swallow -on the verge of sarcasm. Was it really sarcasm If it was, what did that sarcasm mean Is the symphony about having fun, or is it making fun...and if so, of what and of whom Or is there a tragic "subtext" lurking underneath the joyful surface, as one Russian critic suggested, comparing Shostakovich's humor to Charlie Chaplin's There are no answers to any of these questions, and only one thing is certain: Shostakovich utterly enjoyed having the whole world guessing at his intentions.
What critics didn't seem to realize--viewing the work exclusively in relation to the year 1945 in which it was written--was that Shostakovich was reconnecting here with the style of his own Symphony No. 1, which he had composed almost 20 years earlier as a young man of 19. Not since Symphony No. 1 had Shostakovich's music been
so playful and ironic. Maybe there is a deeper symbolism in the fact that, with the renewal of hope at war's end, a "rejuvenated" composer was revisiting the emotional landscapes of his early days.
Another possible model may have been the First Symphony of Shostakovich's great rival Prokofiev, the famous "Classical" Symphony. Like that work, Shostakovich's Symphony No. 9 begins by masquerading as a Haydn symphony, but it destroys that appearance much faster and much more drastically than Prokofiev had done back in 1917. Shostakovich follows his Haydnesque first theme with a hilariously sim?ple second idea consisting of only a few notes and introduced by the piccolo against an "oom-pah" accompaniment evoking circus music. Like Haydn and Prokofiev, Shostakovich repeats the entire exposition of the first movement -a gesture that unmistakably belongs to the 18th century. And even though the circus theme undergoes a rather dramatic development in the middle of the movement, the recapitulation is again uproariously and irreverently funny.
The second movement is much more serious: it begins with a quiet and introspective clarinet solo that evolves into an intimate chamber-music episode for woodwinds. A second idea, for strings, is rather menacing, but then the quiet opening melody returns, now played by the flute and later by the piccolo. The ending is like a dream one of Shostakovich's most romantic moments.
Next comes a scherzo, as one might expect. The melody skips merrily from key to key, and the orchestration is particularly witty: the woodwinds begin all by themselves, then the strings and, later, the brass instruments assume the leading role. Almost imperceptibly, the mood darkens and the scherzo takes on a more and more dramatic character, until an ominous brass signal announces a somber largo, the most tragic moment of the work. The solo bas?soon delivers a recitative-like solo. It sounds like a solemn speech, perhaps a funeral oration in memory of the war victims. Then, the same solo bassoon suddenly turns from funeral ora?tor into a buffoon as a playful new melody gets
the finale underway. The rhythm suggests a dance, but the melody, with its many tonally ambiguous half-steps, is not exactly jubilant in character. The ambiguity continues as the cheerful march rhythms are combined with a melody that refuses to give up those "tragic" half-steps. Eventually, after a tremendous crescendo, the music reaches a bright E-flat Major as the main theme appears in the full orchestra. From here, it is a triumphant proces?sion right to the end, yet its members sound more like circus clowns than the soldiers of the Red Army. The vexing questions arise again: did Shostakovich desecrate this moment of national glory Or was he merely letting his hair down and celebrating peace in the company of fun-loving friends with a bottle of good vodka, instead of visualizing an Army parade and an official, cliche-ridden speech by Comrade Stalin In the end, we might as well accept the fact that Shostakovich took a break from the grandiose rhetoric of his Symphonies No. 7 and 8 (he would return to them in his Tenth). The difference with those works is not that Symphony No. 9 is cheerful all the way; we have seen that it has its serious, even tragic moments. Rather, it conveys its message in a different style. Yet, perhaps surprisingly, it also has some parallels with that light-hearted neo-classicism that many of Shostakovich's more fortunate contemporaries, from Stravinsky to Milhaud and Poulenc, had also been practicing, each in his own way, in the West, where they didn't have to fear that their stylistic choices might have political consequences.
Scheherazade, Op. 35
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov
Born March 18, 1844 in Tikhvin, Russia
Died June 21, 1908 in Lyubensk, near St. Petersburg
A Thousand-and-One Nights, also known as The Arabian Nights, is one of the best-known of Oriental stories. Originally written in Arabic and arranged in its present form in the 15th century, it became known in the West in the
18th, when it was translated first into French and then into other languages. The splendid tales of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, Sinbad the Sailor, and others have delighted many gen?erations of readers, both young and old.
Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov had firsthand knowledge of the life of sailors, having taken a two-and-a-half-year cruise to the New World and throughout the Mediterranean as a naval officer in the early 1860s. About 25 years later, in 1888, he wrote Scheherazade, in which he strove to capture the general atmosphere of The Arabian Nights but without trying to provide musical illustrations for individual stories. As he explained in his memoirs, he wished to cre?ate "an orchestral suite in four movements, closely knit by the community of its themes and motifs, yet presenting, as it were, a kaleido?scope of fairy-tale images and design of Oriental character."
In fact, the "community of themes and motifs" is one of the most striking features in the work. Although the four movements con?trast strongly in tempo and character, two main motifs are heard throughout the piece and are subjected to many variations that change the rhythm and the orchestration but never the basic melody. The first of these two motifs is announced at the very beginning of the piece by the strings in unison, the second immediate?ly afterwards by the solo violin, which will play a prominent role in all four movements. The themes represent the two protagonists of the story, Sultan Shahriar and his wife Scheherazade.
At the beginning of the score, Rimsky-Korsakov summed up the story that serves as the starting point to all the other stories:
The Sultan Shahriar, convinced of the false?hood and inconstancy of all women, had sworn an oath to put to death each of his wives after the first night. However, the Sultana Scheherazade saved her life by arousing his interest in the tales which she told during the 1001 nights. Driven by curiosity, the Sultan postponed her execu?tion day to day and at last abandoned his sanguinary design.
Scheherazade told miraculous stories to the Sultan. For her tales she borrowed verses from the poets and words from folksongs combining fairy-tales with adventure.
As the various stories unfold, the two princi?pal themes constantly remind us of Scheherazade telling them and Shahriar listening. Rimsky-Korsakov originally provided the individual movements with descriptive titles, later to be omitted from the printed score. Those titles were: "The Sea and Sinbad's Ship," "The Story of the Kalandar Prince," "The Young Prince and the Young Princess," and "Festival at Baghdad -The Sea The Ship Goes to Pieces on a Rock Surmounted by a Bronze Warrior Conclusion." Rimsky-Korsakov thought of these stories as separate, unconnected episodes and pictures from the Arabian Nights, scattered through all four movements of my suite."
The brilliance of Rimsky-Korsakov's melodic imagination is matched in Scheherazade by his exceptional skill as an orchestrator: the numer?ous solos (violin, cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, harp) are carefully chosen for their specific tone colors. The various instruments blend in novel ways that influenced many composers of the subsequent generation, including Rimsky-Korsakov's most famous pupil, Igor Stravinsky.

alery Gergiev is internationally rec?ognized as one of the most outstand?ing musical figures of his generation. His inspired leadership as Artistic and General Director of the Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg, Russia, where he oversees the Kirov Orchestra, Ballet, and Opera, has brought universal acclaim to this distin?guished organization. Together with the Kirov Opera and Orchestra, Maestro Gergiev has toured extensively throughout North America and Europe, as well as to China, Japan, South America, Australia, and Israel. In addition to his
leadership of the Mariinsky Theatre, he is also the Principal Conductor of the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Artistic Director of the Rotterdam PhilharmonicGergiev Festival, which is presented each September, Director and Founder of the Mikkeli International Festival in Finland, and Principal Guest Conductor of the Metropolitan Opera.
Maestro Gergiev celebrates two important occasions during 2003: his 50th birthday (which was in May) and the 300th Anniversary of the founding of St. Petersburg, for which he created an extraordinary three-month "Stars of the White Nights" Festival that opened on May 3. The Festival, in addition to performances by the Kirov Opera, Ballet, and Orchestra, featured major international ensembles such as the Vienna Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic, World Orchestra for Peace, Royal Ballet of Covent Garden, Hamburg Ballet, and the New York City Ballet.
At the Festival, Maestro Gergiev conducted the Kirov's first complete Ring Cycle in more than a century, new productions of Tchaikovsky's Eugene Onegin, and The Enchantress and Verdi's La Traviata. He also conducted the "300 Years of St. Petersburg" Gala concert that featured Renee Fleming, Olga Borodina, Anna Netrebko, Karita Mattila, Bryn Terfel, and Dmitri Hvorostovsky and was attended by 50 interna?tional heads of state.
This fall, Mr. Gergiev had the distinct honor of conducting the opening night at the Metropolitan Opera with La Traviata on September 29 and the opening night of Carnegie Hall's season with a Gala concert fea?turing his own Kirov Orchestra on October 1, with concerts following through the weekend. He also conducted the premiere of the Metropolitan Opera's Stravinsky Triple Bill (Le Sacre du Printemps, Le Rossignol, and Oedipus Rex) and returns to the MET during the winter of 2004 to conduct the new produc?tion of Salome.
Maestro Gergiev made his Kirov Opera debut in 1978 with War and Peace and was appointed Artistic Director and Principal Conductor in 1988. His international awards
include the Dmitri Shostakovich Award and the Golden Mask Award, the most prestigious the?ater prize in Russia. Musical America honored him as "Conductor of the Year," and he was named the People's Artist of Russia, the coun?try's highest cultural award.
Valery Gergiev has recorded exclusively for Universal (Philips) Classics since 1989. His recent releases with the Kirov Orchestra include Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, which has been internationally acclaimed as one of the best recordings of this work.
This evening's performance marks Valery Gergiev's fourth appearance under UMS auspices. He made his UMS debut in November 1992 as conductor of the Kirov Orchestra in Hill Auditorium.
he Kirov Orchestra has a long and distinguished history as one of the oldest musical institutions in Russia. Founded in the 18th century during the reign of Peter the Great, it was known before the revolution as the Russian Imperial Opera Orchestra. Housed in St. Petersburg's famed Mariinsky Theatre (named for the favorite daughter of Czar Nicholas I) since I860, the Orchestra entered its true "golden age" during the second half of the 19th century under the music direction of Eduard Napravnik (1839-1916). Napravnik single-handedly ruled the Imperial Theatre for more than half a century (from 1863-1916) and under his leadership, the Mariinsky Orchestra was recognized as one of the finest in Europe. He also trained a generation of outstanding conductors, developing what came to be known as "the Russian school of conducting."
The Mariinsky Theatre has also been the birthplace of numerous operas and ballets, which have come to be regarded as master?pieces of the 19th and 20th centuries. World-premiere performances include Mussorgsky's Boris Godunov; Rimsky-Korsakov's The Snow Maiden and Legend of the Invisible City of Kitezh; Tchaikovsky's Iolanta, Swan Lake, Nutcracker and Sleeping Beauty, as well as operas by Shostakovich and ballets by Khachaturian.
Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was closely associ?ated with the Mariinsky Theatre, not only con?ducting the orchestra but also premiering his Symphony No. 5, fantasy-overture Hamlet, and Symphony No. 6. Sergei Rachmaninoff conduct?ed the orchestra on numerous occasions, including premieres of his cantata Spring and symphonic poem, The Bells. The orchestra also premiered the music of the young Igor Stravinsky, including his Scherzo Fantastique and suite from The Firebird ballet.
Throughout its history, the Mariinsky Theatre has presented works by Europe's leading opera composers -Handel, Rossini, Gounod, and Wagner. In 1862, Verdi's La Forza del Destino was given its world premiere at the theatre in the presence of the composer.
Wagner was a favorite at the Mariinsky Theatre, where his operas were frequently performed from the 19th through the beginning of the 20th centuries.
By 1917, the orchestra's name had changed to The Royal Imperial Theatre Orchestra and was regarded as St. Petersburg's most renowned symphony orchestra.
Renamed the Kirov during the Soviet era, the orchestra continued to maintain its high artistic standards under the leadership of Evgeni Mravinsky and Yuri Temirkanov. Since Valery Gergiev became artistic director in 1988, the Kirov has forged important relationships with the world's great opera houses, among them London's Royal Opera House, the San Francisco Opera, Paris Op6ra de la Bastille, and the Metropolitan Opera. Soon after the city of Leningrad was renamed St. Petersburg, the Kirov Theatre reverted to its original title of the Mariinsky Theatre, home to the Kirov Opera, the Kirov Ballet, and the Kirov Orchestra.
The Kirov Orchestra today is one of the world's most traveled orchestras, touring to Japan and China, and regularly in Europe, often with its own series or festival of concerts. The Orchestra has toured the US eight times since its 1992 debut at Lincoln Center. This current tour, in which the orchestra opens the Carnegie Hall season, will be its second short tour of the US in eight months.
This evening's performance marks the Kirov Orchestra's fourth appearance under UMS auspices. The Orchestra made its UMS debut in November 1992.

Susan Botti
Born April 13, 1962 in Wichita Falls, Texas
Sylvia, a Hampshire pig, came to live with the artist Liebe Coolidge in northeastern Vermont when she was a very young piglet. A brilliant animal, in the tradition of the Learned Pigs of the 18th and early 19th centuries, she was not only house-trained (a considerable achievement for the porcine physiology) but when she grew up and became a mother, she also house-trained her own piglets just as a cat trains its kittens. Athletic and philosophical, Sylvia was highly peripatetic and loved to take long, brisk cross?country walks with her human and canine friends, as well as to muse and meditate. It was only with old age that Sylvia was obliged to curtail her outdoor expeditions and also (due to regrettably inconvenient dimensions) the amount of time she spent in the human indoor environment which she was so interested in studying and to which her presence added such charm.
Pig Dreams had its premiere at The New School in New York City in June 1996.

Lovely midst the hidden thorns
Lovely midst the hidden thorns
lies the dewy rose,
that buds at daybreak
stirred by a fresh breeze;
but lovelier still is the rose
of the amorous cheek
which overshadows and outdoes
the cheeks of Dawn.
Farewell, Nymphs of the flowers
and Nymphs of their perfumes;
gentle Spring,
remain with April;
for more lovely and more real
is Spring seen
in that fresh rose
of the amorous cheek
which overshadows and outdoes
the cheeks of Dawn.
Eyes that were once my life
Eyes that were once my life,
eyes that were the faithful refuge of this heart,
you deny me, alas, your usual help.

why delay any longer
Why do you turn away your gaze
Could it be in order not to see how much
I adore you Look at least to see that I am dying!. i..,..

Beautiful eyes, to arms, to arms:
I am preparing my heart for you;
take joy in wounding me
until I faint.
And if by your arrows
I shall be conquered,
let those glances wound,
but heal me with that smile.
Let no one advise me
Let no one advise me
even though I'd lose my heart,
to abandon the one
that is my life, although cruel and painful,
because if she wishes that I should perish
and my life should be tossed to the wind
I will not get angry, no, I'll not regret it.
He indeed labors in vain
who points out my sickness
and to fight it will be useless
because a cruel beauty delights the heart:
so sweet is the arrow
that even if the heart desires flame and torment
I will not get angry, no, I'll not regret it.
Because the arrow of death
goes out from the beautiful eyes,
because the golden hair
is the chain, and that strong knot
in whose restraints I rejoice,
and because if my lament please her :i
I will not get angry, no, I'll not regret it

0 Theseus, O my Theseus

return, Theseus, O God.
Turn back to see the one
who for you has left fatherland and kingdom,
and who yet in this land,
a prey to pitiless and cruel beasts,
will leave her naked bones.
O Theseus, O my Theseus,
if you knew, O God,
se tu sapessi, ohime, come s'affanna
la povera Arianna,
forse, pentito,
rivolgeresti ancor la prora al lito.
Ma con l'aure serene
tu te ne vai felice et io qui piango;
a te prepara Atene
liete pompe superbe, et io rimango
cibo di fera in soiitarie arene;
te l'uno e 1'altro tuo vecchio parente
stringera lieto, et io
piii non vedrowi, o madre, o padre mio.
Dove, dove e la fede che tanto mi giuravi Cosi nell'alta sede tu mi ripon de gli avi Son queste le corone onde m'adorni il crine Questi gli scettri sono, queste le gemme e gli ori: lasciarmi in abbandono a fera che mi stracci e mi divori! Ah Teseo, ah Teseo mio, lascerai tu morire,
invan piangendo, invan gridando aita, la misera Arianna che a te fidossi e ti die gloria e vita
Ahi, che non pur risponde.
Ahi, che piii d'aspe e sordo a miei lamenti!
O nembi, o turbi, o venti,

if you knew, alas, how tormented is
poor Arianna,
perhaps, repentent,
you would turn your ship towards these shores.
But, with the serene breezes
you go off happy, and I weep here;
for you Athens prepares
joyous and superb festivities, and 1 remain
a prey to wild beasts on these solitary shores;
each of your old parents
will embrace you in joy, and I -_?
will see you no more, o mother, o father mine. '.

Ah, more deaf than the asp is he to my laments!
O clouds, O storms, O winds,
drown him in those waves.

he motets that comprise the first part of our program reflect the musical culture in northern Italy during the 17th century. Ludovico Grossi's Concerti _ ecclesiastic:, Op. 12 revolutionized the )olyphonic motet tradition long associated nth the composers Tomas Luis de Victoria and
ilestrina, by being the first publication of acred vocal music to include a basso continuo. Alessandro Grandi was a student of Schiitz and Gabrieli in Venice, and succeeded Monteverdi in his posts at Venice and Ferrara. Ignatio Donati held a long succession of posts at several cathe?drals in Italy, including Urbino, Ferrara, Lodi, and Milan. His output is almost exclusively church music, and his concertato motets for several voices and continuo stand out as some of the most revered pieces in his canon. I Claudio Monteverdi's Vespers stem from the composer's Mantuan period and embodies the expressiveness and heightened awareness to the text that characterized the northern Italian con?certato style. He appears to have shared the atti?tude of his German contemporary Heinrich Schutz, another great composer of both sacred and sec?ular genres, who regarded the text as the founda?tion of musical substance: Prima le parole e poi la musica. It is hardly surprising that Monteverdi was drawn to the madrigal, the perfect genre for the juxtaposition of cerebral expression and musical affect. From his first book of secular madrigals in 1587 through the posthumous Ninth Book of 1651, his works evolved from five-voice poetic settings to strikingly original concertato duets with basso continuo and obbli-gato instruments that broke new ground in terms of dissonance and polyphonic texture. It is curious to note that the Neoplatonic aesthetic concerning the faithful mirroring of the poetry went hand in hand with the custom of reusing secular vocal works as sacred con-trafacta. Between 1607 and 1609, a priest from Milan, Aquilino Coppini, produced three volumes of spiritual madrigals drawn from the contents of Monteverdi's Fourth and Fifth (1605) madrigal books, skillfully replacing the original, floridly erotic texts with edifying Latin verses intended
to encourage spiritual growth. Monteverdi . himself would later follow suit and publish a ?-reworking of his famous Lamcnto d'Arianna (which closes this evening's program) as Pianto della Madonna. Apparently Counter-Reformation fervor would impose any effective means to further its spiritual aims.
he name La Venexiana is taken from an anonymous Renaissance comedy, a masterpiece of Italian theater for its use of language, a combination of Italian and dialect, and for its insightful ren?dering of society and manners. In taking on this name, La Venexiana attempts to convey in its musical interpretations all the theatricality, attention to language in all its subtlety, and cel?ebration of contrasts between the refined and the popular, the sacred and profane that char?acterize our culture today.
The members of La Venexiana are some of the most experienced European performers in the early music field, especially in the Italian Madrigal repertoire. They have established a new style in Italian early music performance: a warm, truly Mediterranean blend of textual declamation, rhetorical color and harmonic refinement. jiL
La Venexiana has performed at numerous major festivals and concert series around the world including the Musikverein's Golden Hall in Vienna, De Singel in Antwerp, and the Brugge Festival. In the US, it has performed in New York City, Tucson, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle.
La Venexiana's recordings of madrigals by Monteverdi, D'India, Luzzaschi, Marenzio and Gesualdo have won it much public notice and critical acclaim. Other awards include the "Diaspon d'Or" in September 1999, November 1999, and October 2001, and the "Editors' Choice of Repertoire" in December 1999. Recently, the ensemble received the 2001 Gramophone Award and the 2002 Cannes Classical Award.
This evening's performance marks La Venexiana's UMS debut.

ew artists in history have had as dramatic and lasting an impact on their craft and on popular culture as Wynton Marsalis. A brilliant musician and prolific composer whose record?ings have sold more than nine million copies worldwide, Mr. Marsalis' exploration of diverse musical styles and structures has forever changed jazz's standing in the music world. Long form works such as Citi Movement, In This House, On This Morning, Blood on the Fields, and All Rise have shown jazz to be as powerful, as complex, and as thought-provoking as any symphonic or operatic composition, without sacrificing the accessibility and spirit at the heart of this innately American art form.
At the same time, Mr. Marsalis has had an equally significant role in developing young musicians, preserving the history of jazz, and creating new jazz fans by expanding the music's vocabulary as well as initiating young listeners. Under his direction, New York City's Jazz at Lincoln Center (J@LC) program has initiated hundreds of musicians and thousands of fans into the jazz world and successfully served the needs of the existing jazz community. Mr. Marsalis has helped to build the program into an internationally recognized force in the per?forming arts. As Artistic Director of J@LC, Mr. Marsalis has been able to highlight the music of many of jazz's preeminent performers includ?ing Thelonius Monk, Duke Ellington, Count Basic, Dizzy Gillespie, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Gerry Mulligan, and Chico O'Farrill. The culminating achievement of J@LC will be the completion of Rose Hall, a $125-million complex that will be the first-ever concert space acoustically designed for jazz.
In 1997, Mr. Marsalis broke the barriers between classical and jazz in his epic oratorio on slavery, Blood on the Fields. The thought-provoking three-hour work earned Mr. Marsalis a Pulitzer Prize an honor that had previously been reserved only for traditional classical com?posers. In 1996, his 26-part National Public Radio series, Making the Music, and his four-part PBS series, Marsalis on Music, won him a Peabody Award. ?
It is likely that Mr. Marsalis' ability to artic?ulate and communicate the story of jazz has contributed to his international prominence. Recognized worldwide as a towering figure on the cultural landscape, Mr. Marsalis has been awarded the "Grand Prix du Disque" of France, the Edison Award of the Netherlands and has been named an Honorary Member of England's Royal Academy of Music. Domestically, he has been honored with nine Grammy awards for his jazz and classical recordings. Last year, he was given the Black History Makers Award.
Simultaneously educating and expanding the audience for the traditional jazz canon, while redefining the tremendous value and sub?stance of jazz and the blues, Wynton Marsalis has erased countless musical boundaries. He has shown the music world both the worth of jazz's established swing and the promise of its power and depth.
This evenings performances mark Wynton Marsalis' seventh and eighth appearances under UMS auspices. In February 1997, Mr. Marsalis appeared under UMS auspices in presentation of his Pulitzer Prize-winning oratorio Blood on the Fields in Hill Auditorium. He made his UMS debut in January 1996 with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra. Tonight also marks the Wynton Marsalis Quintet's UMS debut.
