Maestw htufxai Smtomli bar, to the Hill Auditorium Audience at the 1936 Mjy ftaral FROM THE U-M PRESIDENT The 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. We are delighted to welcome UMS back to Hill Auditorium in time to celebrate UMS's 125th Anniversary with several concerts and revelry on January 17,18, and 19. Some of the highlights of the weekend will include a festive gala dinner and concert 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 thoroughly enjoyed the results of our collaboration with UMS in Autumn 2003, which included some extraordinary per?formances. In 2004, a number of superb productions will result from the partner?ship between the University and UMS. Some of these include appearances by the Israel Philharmonic, the great pianist Alfred Brendel, and the celebrated saxo- phonist Ornette Coleman, who will also provide a two-day residency to our stu?dents. The University is also working with UMS to provide exceptional educational programs to the campus: the legendary Merce Cunningham Dance Company will collaborate with our Department of Dance, and members of the Guthrie Theater will participate in over 20 events when they are in town to present their magnificent production of Othello. The remarkable Arab-American artist Simon Shaheen has been providing a splendid residency in Ann Arbor and Dearborn in conjunction with the Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services, culminating in a concert in the Michigan Theater on January 31. And on April 8, UMS and the School of Music collaborate to produce Professor William Bolcom's epic Songs of Innocence and of Experience. I want to thank the faculty and staff of the University of Michigan and UMS for their hard work and dedication in making our partnership a success. The University of Michigan is pleased to support the University Musical Society during this exhilarating 0304 season, and we share the goal of making our co-presentations aca?demic and cultural events that benefit the university community and the broadest possible constituency. Sincerely, Mary Sue Coleman President, University of Michigan FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT Thank you for joining us for this perfor?mance 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 pro?grams during this milestone season. Check the complete listing of UMS's Winter 2004 events beginning on p. 27 and on our web- site at www.ums.org. The big news during this winter term is, of course, the re-opening of Hill Auditorium after its 20-month renovation and restoration. If you're read?ing this program book while you are in Hill Audi?torium, welcome back to this glorious 90-year-old venue. If you're at another venue, I hope you have been or will soon get to Hill. What the University of Michigan has done in this phase of Hill's renovation is absolutely marvelous. As a patron, you'll find a much more welcoming and comfortable build?ing...and one whose infrastructure has been vastly updated and improved to see it through the 21st century. Take the elevator to the balcony, have a coffee in the Elizabeth E. Kennedy Lower Lobby, sit in one of the new and wider seats on the main floor, and look at the stunning new colors surrounding the stage and the ring of lights on the ceiling. These are totally new experiences for a patron attending a UMS concert. What remains to be done in the next phase of renovation is the con?struction of a backstage addition to Hill Auditorium so that this world-renowned concert hall will be as welcoming and comfortable for our visiting artists as it is now for our patrons. We are pleased that International Arts Manager, the major business magazine for the performing arts published in London, featured UMS as the cover story in its DecemberJanuary issue (see photo). The article recognizes the prominent role UMS now plays on the international performing arts scene, the outstanding team of UMS department heads, and UMS's being the oldest university-related pre?senting organization in the US. Visit our website to read the article. It's wonderful to have you with us for this perfor?mance. Feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or proDiems. ine oest 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 this performance, please send me an e-mail message at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 734.647.1174. Very best wishes, Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President LETTER FROM THE CHAIR The UMS 125th season continues with the opening of a newly renovated Hill Auditorium. What a pleasure it is to have our unique hall back with comfortable seats, air conditioning, and more restrooms! Our fall season culminated with the Globe Theatre's production of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night, the Boston Pops, and the 125th annual UMS pro?duction of Handel's Messiah -very different and equally engaging pro?ductions. The UMS staff deserves a standing ova?tion for their enormous hard work. This past summer we had to reduce our staff by 20, further increasingly everyone's work?load. This is a truly dedicated staff that continuously does a superb job providing the best productions and educational events for the University and our community. In December, UMS celebrated, if from afar, President Ken Fischer who received the Patrick Hayes Award in London. Named after the man who was founding president of the International Society for the Performing Arts (ISPA) in 1949 and served as Ken's mentor, the Patrick Hayes Award recognizes an ISPA member of long standing whose achievements in arts man?agement are deserving of the highest praise and recognition. This winter season brings us the Children of Uganda, the Israel Philhar?monic, and virtuosic pianist Lang Lang, to name just a few events from the splendid artistic menu UMS has planned for us. The season finale will be the Ford Honors Program on May 15 featuring Sweet Honey in the Rock (founder Bernice Johnson Reagon received an honorary degree from U-M in 2000). The perform?ance will coincide with the opening of the University Capital Campaign. UMS will be a prominent part of the campaign, and we look to our audience and friends to help us ensure the future of the organization. For those of us who have been able to sup?port UMS in the past, it is an honor to participate in providing such a rich cultur?al environment for the University, the community and southeastern Michigan. I invite all of you to join us in ensuring the growth and success of the University Musical Society.

UMSannals Through an uncompromising commit?ment to Presentation, Education, 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 partic?ipation 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 Simmons Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Their first perform?ance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879, and this glorious oratorio has since been performed 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 Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts. 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 90 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 organi?zation that supports itself from ticket sales, corporate and individual contributions, foun?dation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income. UMS CHORAL UNION Throughout 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 per?formances 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 cho?rus has joined the DSO in Orchestra Hall and at Meadow Brook for subscription performanc?es 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' Ein deutsches Requiem, Participation in the Choral Union remains open to all by audition.

Led by interim conductor Jerry Blackstone, the Choral Union opened its current season with performances of Verdi's Requiem with the DSO in September. In December the chorus presented 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 Song of Innocence and of Experience in the newly renovated Hill Auditorium in April 2004. 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. Choral Union's season concluded in March with a pair of mag?nificent French choral works: Honegger's King David, accompanied by members of the Greater Lansing Symphony Orchestra, and Durufl6's mystical Requiem, accompanied by international-class 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 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 com?posers of all historical periods; a joint appear?ance 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.

VENUES Hill Auditorium After an 18-month $38.6-million dollar reno?vation, which began on May 13, 2002, over?seen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects, Hill Auditorium has re-opened. Originally built in 1913, renovations have updated Hill's infra?structure and restored much of the interior to its original splendor. Exterior renovations include the reworking of brick paving and stone retaining wall areas, restoration of the south entrance plaza, the reworking of the west barri?er-free ramp and loading dock, and improve?ments to landscaping. Interior renovations included the demolition of lower-level spaces to ready the area for future improvements, the creation of additional rest-rooms, the improvement of barrier-free circula?tion by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement of seating to increase patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of the?atrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Re-opened in January 2004, Hill Auditorium seats 3,538. Power Center The 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. 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 Fifty 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, UMS presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York per?forming 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. 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. 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 construction on the campus facility in 1996. The Convocation Center opened its doors on December 9, 1998 with a seating capacity of 9,510 for center-stage entertainment events. UMS has presented special dance parties at the EMU Convocation Center nearly every April since 1998, and this year's popular concert fea?tures Orchestra Baobab on Saturday, April 17. 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 their familiar home at Burton Memorial Tower in August 2001, following a year of significant renovations to the University landmark. This current season marks the third 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.

This performance is sponsored by TIAA-CREF. Presented with support from the Wallace Foundation and JazzNet. JazzNet is a program of the Nonprofit Finance Fund, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. Additional support provided by media sponsors WEMU 89.1 FM, WDET 101.9 FM, Michigan Chronicle, and Michigan Front Page. Special thanks to Mark Stryker, Stephen Rush, Ellen Rowe, Travis Jackson, Andrew Bishop, Tim Flood, U-M Department of Dance, U-M Jazz and Improvisational Studies, and the Ann Arbor District Library for their assistance in this residency. Mr. Coleman appears by arrangement with Original Artists, New York, NY. Large print programs are available upon request. Rarely does one person change the way we listen to music, but such a man is Ornette Coleman. Since the late 1950s, when he burst on the New York jazz scene with his legendary engagement at the Five Spot, Mr. Coleman has been teaching the world new ways of listening to music. His revolutionary musical ideas have been controversial, but today his enormous contribution to modern music is recognized throughout the world. Ornette Coleman was born in Fort Worth, Texas in 1930 and taught himself to play the saxophone and read music by the age of 14. One year later he formed his own band. Finding a troublesome existence in Fort Worth surrounded by racial segregation and poverty, he took to the road at age 19. During the 1950s while in Los Angeles, Ornette's musical ideas were too controversial to find frequent public performance possibilities. He did, however, find a core of musicians who took to his musical concepts: trumpeters Don Cherry and Bobby Bradford, drummers Ed Blackwell and Billy Higgins, and bassist Charlie Haden. In 1958, with the release of his debut album Something Else, it was immediately clear that Mr. Coleman had ushered in a new era in jazz history. This music, freed from the prevail?ing conventions of harmony, rhythm, and melody, often called "free jazz," transformed the art form. Mr. Coleman called this concept Harmolodics. From 1959 through the rest of the '60s, Mr. Coleman released more than 15 critically acclaimed albums on the Atlantic and Blue Note labels, most of which are now recog- nized as jazz classics. He also began writing string quartets, woodwind quintets, and sym?phonies based on Harmolodic theory. In the early 1970s, Ornette traveled throughout Morocco and Nigeria playing with local musicians and interpreting the melodic and rhythmic complexities of their music into this Harmolodic approach. In 1975, seeking the fuller sound of an orchestra for his writing, Mr. Coleman constructed a new ensemble entitled Prime Time, which included the doubling of guitars, drums, and bass. Combining elements of ethnic and danceable sounds, this approach is now identified with a full genre of music and musicians. In the next decade, more surprises included trend-setting albums such as SongX with guitarist Pat Metheny and Virgin Beauty featuring Grateful Dead leader Jerry Garcia. The 1990s included other large works such as the premiere of Architecture in Motion, Ornette's first Harmolodic ballet, as well as work on the soundtracks for the films Naked Lunch and Philadelphia. With the dawning of the Harmolodic record label under Polygram, Ornette became heavily involved in new record?ings including Tone Dialing, Sound Museum, and Colors. In 1997, New York City's Lincoln Center Festival featured the music and the vari?ous guises of Ornette over four days, including performances with the New York Philharmonic and Kurt Masur of his symphonic work, Skies of America. There has been a tremendous outpouring of recognition bestowed upon Ornette Coleman for his work, including honorary degrees from the University of Pennsylvania, California Institute of the Arts, and Boston Conservatory, and an honorary doctorate from the New School for Social Research. In 1994, he was a recipient of the distinguished MacArthur Fellowship award, and in 1997, was inducted into the American Academy of Arts and Letters. In 2001, Ornette received the prestigious award from the Japanese government, the Praemium Imperiale. Tonight's performance marks Ornette Coleman's UMS debut. Otnette Coleman A native of Los Angeles, bassist Greg Cohen has been playing in various acclaimed music groups since the 1960s. A solid player without equal, Mr. Cohen has played in countless jazz ensembles with top musicians including Bill Frisell, John Zorn, and Dave Douglas. Mr. Cohen's experience reaches far beyond any one style or genre; he has also played with the Rolling Stones, Lou Reed, and Laurie Anderson, and he's been a mainstay on Tom Waits' albums since 1980's Heartattack and Vine. Greg Cohen has also composed for the Lincoln Center Theater, among others, and collaborated on film score arrangements for such movies as Ed Wood and Fried Green Tomatoes. Tonight's performance marks Greg Cohen's UMS debut. Well respected in the world of avant-garde jazz, drummer Denardo Coleman is the son of alto saxophonist Ornette Coleman -a revolution?ary, daring, amazingly innovative musician composer who was among the creators of free jazz. Denardo Coleman was among the people who was able to understand his father's innova?tions, and thanks to Ornette, the drummer received a first-class education in avant-garde jazz at an early age. Denardo Coleman, who was born in 1956, ended up following in his father's footsteps. The drummer was only ten years old in 1966 when he played on an Ornette Coleman album titled The Empty Foxhole (which featured Charlie Haden on acoustic bass). That Blue Note release turned out to be the first of many Ornette Coleman albums that Denardo would appear on, and in the 1970s, Denardo began playing with his father's band, Prime Time. Denardo Coleman (whose influences have ranged from Ed Blackwell to Rashied Ali to Elvin Jones) wasn't Prime Time's only drum?mer (the band became famous for using two drummers at once), but by playing on various Prime Time albums, Denardo made valuable contributions to electric free jazz. In addition to his work as a drummer, Denardo Coleman is also a producer; the Ornette Coleman albums that have made use of Denardo's production skills include In All Languages and Virgin Beauty in the 1980s and Hidden Man and Three Women in the 1990s. Denardo Coleman was critically acclaimed for his work on SongX, a 1985 session that Ornette co-led with guitarist Pat Metheny. In addition to his long history of playing with Ornette, Denardo Coleman has collaborated on albums with Ulmer, Tacuma, and free jazzspoken word artist Jayne Cortez. Tonight's performance marks Denardo Coleman s UMS debut. A native of Brooklyn, New York, Tony Falanga received his musical education at the Manhattan and Juilliard Schools of Music, where his prin?cipal mentor was the world-renowned David Walter, and at Boston's Berklee College of Music, where he received a degree in Jazz Performance. While at the Juilliard School he was awarded the prestigious Lewine Foundation Scholarship. His extensive professional activities as a solo, chamber and jazz bassist have earned him criti?cal acclaim as a player of "extraordinary excel?lence." In the classical repertoire he has appeared as soloist with the New York Concertino, the Tchaikovsky Chamber Orchestra, the Spoleto Music Festival, the Newport Music Festival and the International Society of Double Bassists, while as a jazz musician he has played with leading artists such as Wynton Marsalis, Andre Previn, Jim Hall, Junior Mance, Joe Lavano, Randy Brecker, and Bob Mintzer. He is also in frequent demand by New York orchestras and ballet companies. Recent years have seen exten?sive collaboration with Klezmer phenomenon Giora Feidman, with whose ensemble he has concertized throughout Europe, and with virtu?oso bassist John Feeney, as half of the FeeneyFalanga Duo, setting new standards for double bass performance and providing ample display of Mr. Falanga's natural talents as a cre?ative, innovative, and spiritual musician. Tonight's performance marks Tony Falanga's UMS debut.

Symphony No. 1 in D Major, "Classical," Op. 25 Sergei Prokofiev Born April 27, 1891 in Sontsovka, Ukraine, Russia Died March 5, 1953 in Moscow With his first two piano concertos and the Scythian Suite, the young Prokofiev established a reputation, in the 1910s, as the enfant terrible of Russian music, shocking critics and audiences with his highly unconventional harmonies and wild rhythms. His early works seemed to be all about defying authority. He rebelled against his teachers at the St. Petersburg Conservatory (Glazunov and Liadov), but his music also reflected the more general intellectual unrest of the war years that led to the 1917 revolutions (the overthrow of the Czar in February and the Bolshevik coup in October). Yet in one of his first works written after the revolution broke out, Prokofiev went out of his way to appear non-revolutionary: he spent much of the sum?mer of 1917 working on a "Classical Symphony," ostensibly conceived within the harmonic and structural world of Haydn's symphonies. In ret?rospect, though, it is clear that this return to Classicism was just another contrary move on the part of a young man always intent on doing the unexpected. Nor is that return complete: we are frequently jolted out of our classical dreams by some change of key Haydn had never dreamt of, or some metric irregularity that would have astounded 18th-century musicians. In his autobiography, Prokofiev wrote: It seemed to me that had Haydn lived to our day he would have retained his own style while accepting something of the new at the same time. That was the kind of sym?phony I wanted to write: a symphony in the classical style. And when I saw that my idea was beginning to work, I called it the Classical Symphony, in the first place because that was simpler, and secondly, for the fun of it, to "tease the geese," and in the secret hope that I would prove to be right if the symphony really did turn out to be a piece of classical music. The first ideas for the symphony date from 1916 -the third-movement "Gavotte" was written that year. Thus the decision to replace the minuet, a dance in 34 time, by a dance in duple meter, was made early on. The Gavotte was clearly Prokofiev's favorite among old dance forms: he had included it earlier in his Ten Pieces for Piano, Op. 12, and again later in the ballet Romeo and Juliet, where he re-used, in a somewhat expanded form, the music from the third movement of the symphony. The first and second movements were also sketched in 1916, but the bulk of the work was completed during the summer of 1917, in a country house where Prokofiev was sheltered from the turmoil of that difficult summer. The composer had left his piano in the city, having decided for the first time to write without one. "I believed that the orchestra would sound more natural," he wrote later; and in fact, he had achieved a bright and delicate orchestral sound that his earlier works didn't have. At 15 minutes' duration, the "Classical" is the shortest of Prokofiev's seven symphonies, and shorter than many by Haydn. The themes are all kept brief and developments are sparse, with an emphasis on shorter, well-rounded, and separated units. The very simplicity of the writ?ing sometimes becomes the source of musical humor. For instance, the first movement's sec?ond theme consists of only two different notes, each of which is repeated two octaves lower -an unusually large melodic leap that saves the melody from becoming banal. The orchestra?tion also adds more than a few comic touches, as in the third movement where, after the mid?dle section, the Gavotte theme returns in sharply reduced scoring, causing the theme to vanish into thin air, as it were. A more serious tone is introduced in the second-movement "Larghetto," which anticipates the lyricism of Prokofiev's Soviet-period works from the 1930s. But the work ends on a cheerful note, with a sparkling finale that is hard to listen to without at least a smile. Violin Concerto No. 1 in g minor, Op. 26 Max Bruch Born January 6, 1838 in Cologne, Germany Died October 2, 1920 in Friedenau, near Berlin Bruch's Violin Concerto No. 1 in g minor is the work of a young man of 28 who already had several successful compositions to his credit, including an opera, Die Lorelei, performed in several German theaters. With his violin con?certo, Bruch -who had recently been appoint?ed as music director in the city of Coblenz -intended to confirm his position as a promi?nent composer of the Schumann-Mendelssohn school. While he was working on the concerto, he confided to his former teacher Ferdinand Hiller in a letter, "My Violin Concerto is pro?gressing slowly -I do not feel sure of my feet in this terrain. Do you not think that it is in fact very audacious to write a violin concerto" Bruch finally sought the advice of Joseph Joachim, one of the greatest violinists of the day, who also helped Brahms and Dvorak with their concertos. The correspondence between Bruch and Joachim, which contains extensive musical notation, reveals how many details had to be changed before the concerto assumed its final form. Bruch may have been a traditional compos?er, but he was not one to follow the conventions slavishly. The form of his first movement, which bears the title "Vorspiel" (Prelude), is much looser and more fantasy-like than the first movements of most concertos. It begins with a violin cadenza, followed by the main theme that also has a certain cadenza-like free?dom to it, despite its strict rhythm marked by the timpani and the double bass. The lyrical second theme evolves into a section filled with scintillating passagework, followed by a dra?matic section for orchestra alone. After this, the initial cadenza returns, and a short orchestral transition leads directly into the second-move?ment "Adagio," warmly lyrical and exceptionally rich in melodic invention. The theme of the third-movement "Finale" begins after an introduction of a few bars. It is a brilliant melody full of virtuosic double-stops and arpeggios, followed by a dramatic second theme. The movement follows the rules of sonata form, although the development is extremely brief. There is a substantial coda, however, bringing some harmonic surprises and previously unheard variations on the two themes. The concerto ends in a faster tempo. Bruch lived for more than 50 years after completing his g-minor concerto. He wrote about a hundred compositions, including the popular Scottish Fantasy (for violin and orches?tra), the Kol Nidrei (for cello and orchestra) and two more violin concertos. Yet it is the present work that has kept his name firmly in the repertoire since the day of the premiere. The composer, who sold the rights to his work to the publisher for a one-time lump payment, no doubt regretted his naivete in later years. Symphony No. 2 in D Major, Op. 43 Jean Sibelius Born December 8, 1865 in Ha'meenlinna, Finland (then under Russian domination) Died September 20, 1957 in Jdrvenpad, Finland Jean Sibelius was much more than Finland's greatest composer of international reputation. For the Finns, he was -and still is -a nation?al hero, who expressed what was widely regard?ed as the essence of the Finnish character in music. In his symphonic poems, Sibelius drew on the rich tradition of the ancient Finnish epic, the Kalevala. And in his seven symphonies he developed a style that has come to be seen as profoundly Finnish and Nordic. It was a logical continuation of the late Romantic tradition inherited from Brahms, Grieg, and Tchaikovsky, and at the same time a highly per?sonal idiom to which he held steadfastly in the midst of a musical world filled with an increas?ing multiplicity of new styles. Each of Sibelius's symphonies has its own personality. Symphony No. 2 is distinguished by a predilection for melodies that sound like folk?songs -although Sibelius insisted that he had not used any original folk melodies in the sym?phony. We know, however, that he was interest?ed in the folk music of his country, and in 1892 visited Karelia, the Eastern province of Finland known for the archaic style of its songs. It was perhaps this avowed interest in folksong that prompted commentators to suggest a patriotic, political program for the symphony. None other than the conductor Georg Schneevoigt, a close friend of Sibelius and one of the most prominent early performers of his music, claimed that the first movement depicted the quiet pastoral life of the Finnish people and in subsequent movements, in turn, the Russian oppressors, the awakening of national resist?ance, and finally the triumph over the foreign rule. These ideas were certainly timely at the turn of the century, when Finland was in fact ruled by the Czar, though Sibelius himself never made any statements on the program. In the first movement Sibelius "teases" the listener by introducing his musical material by bits and pieces and taking an unusually long time to establish connections among the vari?ous short motifs introduced. The gaps are filled in only gradually. Eventually the outlines of a symphonic form become evident and by the end of the movement everything falls into place. In his 1935 book on Sibelius's sym?phonies, Cecil Gray observed: Whereas in the symphony of Sibelius's pred?ecessors the thematic material is generally introduced in an exposition, taken to pieces, dissected, and analyzed in a development section, and put together again in a recapit?ulation, Sibelius in the first movement of the Second Symphony inverts the process, introducing thematic fragments in the exposition, building them up into an organ?ic whole in the development section, then dispersing and dissolving the material back into its primary constituents in a brief reca?pitulation. The second movement ("Andante, ma rubato") opens in a quite exceptional way: a timpani roll followed by an extended, unac- companied pizzicato (plucked) passage played in turn by the double basses and the cellos. This gives rise to the first melody, marked lugubre (mournful) and played by the bassoons (note the exclusive use of low-pitched instruments). Slowly and hesitatingly, the higher woodwinds and strings enter. Little by little, both the pitch and the volume rise, and the tempo increases to Poco Allegro, with a climactic point marked by fortissimo chords in the brass. As a total con?trast, a gentle violin melody, played in triple pianissimo and in a new key, starts a new sec?tion. The lugubre theme, its impassioned off?shoots, and the new violin melody, dominate the rest of the movement. The movement ends with a closing motif derived from this last melody, made more resolute by a fuller orches?tration. The third movement ("Vivacissimo") is a dashing scherzo with a short and languid trio section. The singularity of the trio theme, played by the first oboe, is that it begins with a single note repeated no less than nine times, yet it is immediately perceived as a melody. The rest of the theme is eminently melodic, with a graceful tag added by the two clarinets. After a recapitulation of the scherzo proper, the trio is heard another time, followed by a masterly transition that leads directly into the triumphant "Finale." The first theme of the "Finale" is simple and pithy; it is played by the strings, with forte (loud) dynamics, to a weighty accompaniment by low brass and timpani. The haunting second theme has a four-line structure found in many folksongs, and is played by the woodwinds much softer than the first theme, though even?tually rising in volume. After a short develop?ment section, the triumphant first and the folk?song-like second themes both return. Repeated several times with the participation of ever-greater orchestral forces, the second theme builds up to a powerful climax. The first theme is then restated by the full orchestra as a con?cluding gesture. Program notes by Peter Laki. Maestro Yoel Levi is the Principal Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. He is the first Israeli to hold this distin?guished position. The 2004 US tour is his first with the Israel Philharmonic. The Orchestra is performing in 11 cities with noted soloists Andre Watts, Emanuel Ax, Joseph Kalichstein, and Pinchas Zuckerman In addi?tion, he is Music Director Emeritus of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO) and Music Adviser to the Flemish Radio Orchestra. In September 2005, he will become the Principal Conductor of the Orchestre National d'lle de France. In June 2001, he was named Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres, one of the most prestigious awards given by the French Government. While he was Music Director of the ASO from 1988 to 2000, Mr. Levi's impact on the orchestra was summed up by Gramophone Magazine, which said, "Yoel Levi has built a reputation for himself and for his orchestra that is increasingly the envy of the big five American counterparts in New York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Boston, and Chicago." Among his many ASO milestones are a featured role at the Opening Ceremony of the Centennial Olympic Games in July 1996, an extensive and critically acclaimed European tour by the ASO in 1991, and the nomination of the ASO as "Best Orchestra of the Year" for 1991-92 by the First Annual International Classical Music Awards. He made his Opera House debut in 1997 at the Teatro Communale in Florence, Italy, lead?ing eight performances of Puccini's opera La Fanciulla del West in nine days. He has also con?ducted Carmen at the Lyric Opera of Chicago and Puccini's Edgar with the Orchestra National de France, which was released as a live performance on CD by Radio France. With the ASO, he conducted Mozart's Magic Flute, The Abduction from the Seraglio, and Bartdk's Bluebeard's Castle. Mr. Levi has made 40 recordings on differ?ent labels with various orchestras, including the Cleveland Orchestra, the London Philharmonic, and the Philharmonia Orchestra. Thirty of these are with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for Telarc. In 1997 Mr. Levi was awarded the honorary Doctor of Fine Arts Degree by Oglethorpe University in Atlanta. Though born in Voel Levi Romania, Mr. Levi grew up in Israel. He studied at the Tel Aviv Academy of Music, where he received a Master of Arts degree with distinction, and the Jerusalem Academy of Music under Mendi Rodan. He also studied with Franco Ferrara in Sienna and Rome, with Kiril Kondrashin in Holland, and at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. He received First Prize in the Conductor's International Competition in Besancon, France, and became assistant to Lorin Maazel at the Cleveland Orchestra for six years, serving as Resident Conductor from 1980 to 1984. Tonight's performance marks Yoel Levi's second appearance under VMS auspices. Maestro Levi made his UMS debut in October 1989 conducting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Pinchas Zukerman has been recog?nized as a phenomenon for nearly four decades. His musical genius, prodigious technique and exceptional artistic standards have long been a marvel to critics and audiences alike. His devo?tion to younger generations of musicians who are inspired by his magnetism has been applauded worldwide. Equally respected as a violinist, violist, conductor, pedagogue, and chamber musician, Pinchas Zukerman is a mas?ter of our time. Currently in his fifth season as Music Director of Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra, Mr. Zukerman led the ensemble on a highly acclaimed North American tour in November. The tour included the Mexican cities of Monterrey, Guanajuato, and Mexico City, and Miami, Chicago, New York, Washington DC, Philadelphia, Greenville, SC, and Ithaca, NY in the US. Also during the cur?rent season, Mr. Zukerman conducts the Chicago, Pittsburgh and Toronto Symphonies and makes concerto appearances with the New York Philharmonic, Atlanta Symphony, and Israel Philharmonic. Recitals with pianist Marc Neikrug take Pinchas Zukerman place throughout the US, Canada, Spain, and Finland. Mr. Zukerman's summer 2003 festival appearances included London's BBC Proms, the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival, Japan's Miyazaki Festival, and the Pittsburgh Symphony at the Mountain Laurel Center. He also led a group of young colleagues from Canada's National Arts Centre Orchestra on a chamber music tour that included appearances at the Ravinia, Verbier, and Schleswig-Holstein Music Festivals. Born in Tel Aviv in 1948, Pinchas Zukerman began studying at age eight with Ilona Feher. With the guidance of Isaac Stern and Pablo Casals, and with the support of the America-Israel and Helena Rubenstein Foundations, he came to America in 1962 to study with Ivan Galamian on scholarship at The Juilliard School. In 1967 he won First Prize in the 25th Leventritt Competition, setting the stage for his solo career. He has held numerous artistic positions, including Music Director of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for seven years and Principal Guest Conductor of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for two years. In October 2002, he became the first recipient of the Isaac Stern Award for Artistic Excellence at the National Arts Awards Gala in New York City. Pinchas Zukerman's extensive discography contains over 100 titles and has earned 21 Grammy nominations and two awards: "Best Chamber Music Performance" in 1980 and "Best Classical Performance, Instrumental Soloist Without Orchestra" in 1981. Tonight's performance marks Pinchas Zukerman's seventh appearance under UMS auspices. He made his UMS debut in recital with pianist Marc Neikrug in January 1981. The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is one of Israel's oldest and most influen?tial cultural institutions. Since its founding in 1936, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra (originally named the Palestine Orchestra) has dedicated itself to presenting the world's greatest music to audiences in Israel and around the world. Founded by Polish violinist Bronislaw Huberman, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra represents the fulfillment of his dream "to unite the desire of the country for an orchestra with the desire of the Jewish musicians for a coun- try." Huberman spent countless hours persuad?ing first-chair musicians of Eastern Europe and German orchestras, who had lost their jobs as a result of Nazism, to immigrate to Palestine. In doing so, Huberman created an "orchestra of soloists" which, under the esteemed leadership of Zubin Mehta, continues to absorb new immigrants and serve as a gathering point for musicians from all over the world. Major soloists and conductors have always performed with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Its inaugural concert was conducted by Arturo Toscanini, who felt his participation was a means to demonstrate his opposition to Fascism. In 1948, with the formal establishment of the state, the Palestine Orchestra became the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Its members traveled in armored cars to play in a besieged Jerusalem during the War of Independence, and, among Israelis, the memory of Leonard Bernstein conducting the Orchestra in front of 5,000 soldiers on the Negev dunes after the bat?tle for Beersheba is still fresh in their minds. Through it all, the Orchestra has enjoyed asso?ciations with such renowned artists as Daniel Barenboim, Yefim Bronfman, Yo-Yo Ma, Itzhak Perlman, Jean-Pierre Rampal, Arthur Rubinstein, Gil Shaham, Isaac Stern, Pinchas Zukerman, and Kurt Masur, Honorary Guest Conductor since 1992. Their time and talent have enriched the cultural life of Israel and have helped the Orchestra maintain its high artistic standards. The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra is Israel's premier cultural ambassador and travels extensively throughout the world, particularly to countries where there is little or no Israeli representation. The good will created by these world tours is of enormous value to the State of Israel. Additionally, the Orchestra gives more than 150 performances each year in Israel, where 14 different concert series are presented in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, Haifa, and other cities. The Orchestra also appears in rural areas and gives free concerts for members of the armed forces. Zubin Mehta and members of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra are also involved with several musical education and outreach activi?ties. Among those activities is KeyNote, the Orchestra's education and outreach program, designed to bring the principles of orchestral music to schools and communities throughout the country, reaching children, new immi?grants, religious and secular communities, as well as Arab communities. Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra regularly record for Deutsche Grammophon, BMG Classics, Sony Classical and Teldec. Their 60th anniversary concert in December 1996 was not only televised national?ly on PBS, but was also recorded live for BMG Classics and released as a home video. Ongoing projects include the recording of the complete Mahler Symphonies for Teldec. The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra has always been integral to the fabric of Israel. In 1947, the Orchestra played in celebration of the U.N. res?olution for the partition of Palestine with an independent Jewish sector and in 1948 played the Hatikva at the Proclamation Ceremony of the State of Israel. The Orchestra played in 1967 on Mount Scopus in liberated Jerusalem after the Six-Day War and at the 40th anniversary celebration of the State of Israel with a special concert at Masada. The Israel Philharmonic Orchestra played a prominent part in the cele?brations marking the 50th Anniversary of the State of Israel in April and May of 1998 and remains an eloquent voice for peace. Tonight's performance marks the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra's seventh appearance under UMS auspices. The Orchestra made its UMS debut in October 1972 under the baton of Maestro Zubin Mehta.

String Quartet in B-flat Major, Op. 18, No. 6 Ludwig van Beethoven Born on December 15 or 16, 1770 in Bonn, Germany Died on March 26, 1827 in Vienna The six string quartets that comprise Beethoven's Op. 18 were composed between 1798 and 1800, precisely at the same time (and in the same city, Vienna) as Haydn was writing his last and greatest works in that genre. Perhaps Beethoven's quartets represent a sym?bolic passing of the torch: as Haydn concludes the Classical period, Beethoven makes his first steps towards infusing the string quartet with the musical language of emergent Romanticism. By the time he began composing Op. 18, Beethoven already had considerable experience writing for solo strings in chamber ensembles: he had already completed several string trios and serenades. But the string quar?tet was a special genre that, by the turn of the century, had assumed a substantial cultural magnitude. It was expected to be genteel and refined, one of the highest expressions of the composer's art. In embarking on such a chal?lenge, Beethoven signaled his readiness to assert his personal voice onto the inherited legacy of quartet composition. As with his Piano Sonata, Op. 22, also in the key of B-flat, Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 18, No. 6 straddles two worlds. Beginning with a salute to the courtly and aristocratic world of pre-Revolutionary Europe, it concludes with a prophecy and a foretaste of 19th-century Romanticism. Both works, while hardly revolu?tionary, still demonstrate a level of independ?ence and imagination rarely found in Beethoven's earlier, and sometimes more openly ambitious compositions. The stylistic connec?tions between the early quartets and piano sonatas were made even more clear when Beethoven himself arranged his Piano Sonata in E Major (Op. 14, No. 1) for string quartet in 1802, the year after the Op. 18 quartets were published. The first movement of the String Quartet in B-flat Major (Op. 18, No. 6) is a Haydnesque "Allegro con brio": pleasantly vivacious and dance-like. The thematic material in this sonata-form movement is lightweight (similar to that which opens Symphony No. 2), and the harmonic procedures are largely unspectacular. But there are odd poetic touches such as the modulation to a momentary D-flat harmony in the second subject, and an unexpected passage near the end of the development section that has no thematic connection with anything else in the movement. Beethoven's boldest achieve?ment in this movement is that he is able to make the prosaic and conventional sound com?pelling. The second movement, "Adagio ma non troppo," in E-flat major has a theme that is again rather naive, although rhythmic and con?trapuntal decorations redefine its character with each repetition. A somber central section in b-flat minor, much barer in texture, makes an impressive contrast and is alluded to in the movement's coda. The third movement is the most humorous and aggressive Scherzo Beethoven had yet devised. Along with its accompanying capri?cious Trio, it makes much use of cross-rhythms that seem to alternate freely between 34 and 68. The composer throws in frequent sforzandi accents on the last eighth-note of the measure, which are just as frequently tied over the bar-line, adding to the eccentricity of the rhythmic character. Toward the end of the Scherzo an exhilarating climax leads into an abrupt col?lapse. The Trio is hardly more than a series of flitting leaps in the first violin, and is connected to the repeat of the Scherzo with a blustering mock-tragic passage in b-flat minor. This is comedy of a far rougher and more willful vari?ety than audiences had ever experienced in a string quartet; a far cry from the refined and decorous minuets that had come to be expected at this point in the composition. The Adagio introduction to the Finale is one of the most remarkable passages in Beethoven's chamber music. Entitled "La Malincolia," the extensive and elaborate written directions in the score suggest Beethoven was conscious of writing in an unusually emotional style -the composer directs that this interlude be "played with the greatest delicacy." The opening theme is not developed in Beethoven's usual manner. Instead, an unexpected early modulation leads to a passage of keyless diminished-seventh chords, ornamented with grace notes. The har?monic adventures of this introduction are unprecedented, and look forward to the sound-world of Wagner's music 70 years into the future. After this extraordinary and prophetic introduction, he recalls a much more conven?tional, charming world for the Allegretto quasi Allegro finale. It is an unusual kind of rondo in which the second episode is a recapitulation of the first. The melancholy of the preceding Adagio reappears twice in the finale, but with each appearance shorter than the previous one: a musical parable of introspection being over?come by innocent joy. The movement ends with a dazzling prestissimo coda. String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135 Beethoven Beethoven's late string quartets have attracted a reputation as archetypes of all that is deep, dif?ficult, and esoteric in the classical repertoire. For many aficionados, a listener's ability to comprehend that Late Quartets acts a kind of litmus test for devotion to "serious" music. Yet the very last quartet Beethoven ever composed, the Op. 135 in F Major (completed in 1826), is so different in scope and character from its immediate predecessors that it neither warrants nor deserves this reputation as a "Late Quartet." It occupies a similar position in Beethoven's chamber works as his Symphony No. 8 (also in F Major) does in the symphonic repertoire; a conscious harking back to earlier styles, and a more mature reconsideration of the Classical legacy the composer inherited at the turn of the century. The almost total disarray in Beethoven's per?sonal life during the latter months of 1826 is not borne out in the quartet's musical materials at all. Composed during a period of extreme ill?ness, financial hardship, and the ongoing trou?bles with his nephew, Karl, the Op. 135 quartet is nevertheless full of charm, grace, and relaxed humor, with a touch of'"Biedemeier" familiarity (a clear departure from the intense spirituality and profundity of the Op. 131 quartet and the Grosse Fuge). Beethoven dedicated this F-Major quartet to Johann Wolfmeier -a cloth mer?chant, not an aristocrat -lending credence to the perception that the work's brevity, accessi?bility, and more traditional compositional tech?niques were designed to appeal specifically to a bourgeois sensibility, instead of a high-cultured aristocracy. The first movement's warm, conversational tone derives in part from the five separate motifs, each with its own inflection and charac?ter that are tossed from instrument to instru?ment. The second subject returns to the world of Beethoven's "Pastoral" Symphony, with its staccato arpeggios and light-hearted passage-work. The vaguely fugal development section centers on another homage to Haydn: a false recapitulation that, as Kerman notes, is a con?siderable rarity in Beethoven's work. When the real recapitulation finally arrives, "it is quite smug about the tease." The coda begins in the same manner as the development section, and even incorporates a reference to this false reca?pitulation. The Scherzo, marked simply "Vivace" and still in the tonic key of F, is also humorous, but with a dark, sardonic undertone. Primarily rhythmic in interest, it is propelled forward by pointed syncopations and cross accents. The scintillating opening is periodically disturbed by a reiterated unison E-flat that serves no musical purpose other than to intrude a note of insistent mystery into the passage. A rising scale in the viola and cello and a repeated-note accompaniment introduce a furious Trio sec?tion, in which the first violin engages in a wild, acrobatic dance, set off by a doggedly repeated motif in the other instruments that lasts a full 50 measures. The tonic note of the Scherzo becomes the mediant of the following movement, a tranquil "Lento assai" in D-flat Major. This movement was added as an afterthought; the original con?ception was for a three-movement quartet without a slow movement. Over sketches for the simple melody, Beethoven wrote: Susser Ruhegesang, Friedengesang (sweet restful, peace?ful song). This melody then proceeds through four variations, played without pause and never rising above a piano dynamic level. Variation technique is one of the crucial aspects of Beethoven's late style, yet this set is remarkable for its unity rather than its variety -a unity achieved through constant dynamic levels and a pervasive, gentle lyricism (Beethoven marks it cantante, or "singing," rather than the more usual cantabile, meaning "song-like"). The result is one of the most sublime examples of the composer's "interior music." The final movement has given rise to much philosophical speculation, as commentators attempt to assign to this work some of the pro?fundity of its predecessors. Beethoven append?ed a text to the opening melodic motives in the score: under the first three notes (marked Grave) he poses the question, "Muss es sein" (Must it be), which is later answered by an allegro motif, "Es muss sein! Es muss sein!" (It must be! It must be!). Originally this text arose from an exchange between one of Beethoven's usual subscribers, Ignaz Dembscher, and the composer's friend Karl Holz. Dembscher had failed to subscribe to the premiere performance of Beethoven's Op. 130 string quartet, and when he later asked for a loan of the parts, Beethoven refused. Holz suggested that he solve this predicament by paying the subscription fee retroactively. Dembscher asked, "Must it be so" to which Holz replied, "It must be." When Beethoven heard a report of this conversation he burst into laughter, and immediately com?posed a canon based on the dialogue; this canon theme was then reworked into the finale of Op. 135. In this final movement the two con?trasting themes are presented respectively as a slow introduction and as the exposition first theme of a sonata-allegro form. The rest of the movement then proceeds according to the con?ventional classical model. The motifs reappear periodically, but by then "question" has been asked, and the gesture is more musical than rhetorical. Though the origins of the text appended to this movement may have been comical, there is no doubt that Beethoven interpreted it with some seriousness. But whatever deeper conno?tations can be assigned to the universal ques?tion -a question of "being" similar to Hamlet's famous soliloquy -the finale itself is full of laughter, spontaneity, and verve. Whatever Beethoven felt he was triumphing over in this movement, he did it exultantly. String Quartet in C Major, Op. 59, No. 3 Beethoven When the three "Rasumovsky" quartets were first performed in early 1807, they were not well received. The performers themselves thought the quartets comically eccentric and wondered if they should even be considered music. But this didn't seem to concern the composer -he had written the quartets on a commission from Count Rasumovsky, Russian ambassador to Vienna and a talented amateur violinist, but his compositional career was secure enough that he didn't feel the need to please anyone in particular. He wrote them for himself and, as he explained to a friend, "for a later age." Of the three quartets in Op. 59, the third, in C Major, was considered the least incompre?hensible at the premiere. This may be because the formal scheme is fairly conventional, with neither the structural irregularities of the first quartet nor the intimate intensity of the sec?ond. The composer also retained the traditional minuet for a third movement, instead of the more energetic scherzo he had favored in other works. As he began work on this quartet, Beethoven noted in his sketchbook: "Even as you are now being drawn into the stream of society, so it is possible, despite your social dif?ficulties, to continue in your work. Let your deafness no longer be a secret -not even in your art." But there appears to be little direct correlation between these sentiments and the mood of the C-Major quartet. This is no Symphony No. 5, with its symbolic triumph over fate, though the key of C Major is, in that work, also heroic. Perhaps the composer merely wanted to show in this quartet that despite his deafness and social awkwardness, composition was, for him, "business as usual." This is Beethoven's first quartet to begin with a slow introduction, explicitly recalling the 18th-century genre of Haydn and Mozart. After the opening diminished chord, the harmonies slowly wander through ambiguous tonal areas and don't reach tonic until after the Allegro proper has started. This particular effect was not new to Beethoven, as Mozart and Haydn had both used similar procedures to denote mystery and suspense (most clearly in Mozart's "Dissonance" Quartet, K. 465). A short upbeat followed by a long held-note introduces the first theme, and this motif recurs periodically in the development section as well. The first theme itself is noticeably absent in the recapitu?lation, which emphasizes only the exuberant second theme. When Beethoven accepted the commission for these quartets, he promised to "weave a Russian melody" into each one, and while Russian tunes have been identified in the first and second quartets, there is no direct evidence of any in the third. Marion Scott has suggested, however, that the main melody of the second movement -a gently romantic mood-picture in a minor -may also be a Russian folk tune. Lamenting and melancholic, it has an eastern exoticism, heightened by liberal use of the aug-mented-second interval and a hypnotic pizzica?to (plucked) accompaniment in the cello. It is an unusual variant of sonata form, recapitulat?ing the second theme before the first. Beethoven returned to a classical minuet rather than his favored scherzo for the third movement. Though it maintains the triple meter and tempo of the previous Andante, the mood is quite different. Back in the tonic of C Major, it is a relaxing interlude between the darker second movement and the sprightly finale that follows. The rustic trio section in F Major is more overtly dance-like, and a brief coda wanders through some minor-key fields before launching attaca (without pause) into the finale. The fourth movement is a structural tour deforce: a double-exposition fugue in moto per-petuo that is also in sonata form. It culminates not only this work, but the three quartets as a whole, and is the justification behind the quar?tet's sub-title, "Hero." Harry Halbreich writes regarding this movement: "[Beethoven] uses fugal writing, not as a dialectician like Bach, but as a titanic fresco-painter of inexhaustible breadth." But it is the rhythmic drive rather than contrapuntal intricacy that gives this music such irresistible energy. The momentum builds through the coda, so that even the dra?matic pauses near the end are unable to restrain the relentless forward motion. Program notes by Luke Howard. The Takacs Quartet is recognized as one of the world's greatest string quar?tets. Since its formation in 1975, the ensemble has appeared regularly in every major music capital and presti?gious festival. The quartet is based in Boulder, Colorado, where it has held a Residency at the University of Colorado since 1983. Beginning in the 0506 season, the Takacs will be named Associate Artists of London's South Bank Centre. It is also a Resident Quartet at the Aspen Festival, and its members are Visiting Fellows at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London. The first volume of the Takacs Quartet's Beethoven Cycle (middle quartets) was released in May 2002 and received the 2002 Grammy Award for "Best Chamber Music Album," the 2002 Gramophone "Chamber Music Recording of the Year" award, a Grammy nomination for "Best Classical Album," the Chamber Music AmericaWQXR Record Award, and the Japan Record Academy Award for Chamber Music in 2002. Its recording of the Bartok cycle received the 1998 Gramophone award, and in 1999 it was nominated for a Grammy. The ensemble's subsequent recording release for DeccaLondon, with which it signed an exclusive recording contract in 1988, includes the Schubert "Trout" Quintet with pianist Andreas Haefliger and Dvorak's String Quartet, Op. 51 and Piano Quintet Op. 81, also with Mr. Haefliger. Volume two (early quartets) of the Beethoven Cycle will be released in this spring, and the final volume of the late quartets is to appear in early 2005. During the current season, the Takacs Quartet performs over 40 concerts in the US and tours extensively in Europe and Asia. Special projects include Beethoven cycles pre?sented by the Cleveland Orchestra and UCLA, and a tour with the famed Hungarian gypsy ensemble Muzsikas culminating in a Carnegie Hall concert. The ensemble will continue its annual residency at the Aspen Festival. Recent Takacs seasons have included Bartok cycles in Cleveland, Berkeley, New York, London, Madrid, and Seville; Schubert cycles in London, Lisbon, Utrecht, and Spain; and a Brahms cycle in London. The ensemble has performed Beethoven cycles in Paris, London, Zurich, Sydney, New York, at Middlebury College, and numerous concerts surrounding the Mozart anniversary year in 1991. During the summer of 1993, the Takacs gave a cycle of three concerts at the Salzburg Festival featuring the quartets of Bartok and Brahms. The Quartet made its Lincoln Center debut on the Great Performers Series in 1989, and performed a six-concert Haydn Festival in 1991 with pianist Andras Schiff at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (repeated in London's Wigmore Hall). The quartet made its Carnegie Hall debut in 1992. The Takacs Quartet was formed by Gabor Takacs-Nagy, Karoly Schranz, Gabor Ormai, and Andras Fejer in 1975, while all four were students at Budapest's Liszt Academy. It first received international attention in 1977, win- ning First Prize and the Critics' Prize at the International String Quartet Competition in Evian, France. Thereafter, the Takacs won the Gold Medal at the 1978 Portsmouth and Bordeaux Competitions and First Prizes at the Budapest International String Quartet Competition (1978) and the Bratislava Competition (1981). The quartet made its North American debut tour in 1982. This evening's performance marks the Takdcs Quartet's seventh appearance under UMS auspices. The Quartet made its UMS debut in February 1984 and has annually appeared on the UMS Chamber Arts Series since the 0102 season.

Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina is rightly considered one of the giants of polyphonic composition. He has now served for generations of stu?dents as a model to which to aspire. Educated at Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, after spending time in his birthplace of Palestrina, he worked in Rome at the Sistine Chapel, St. Peter's, St. John Lateran, and Santa Maria Maggiore -where he served as Maestro di Cappella. He was a prolific composer writing over 100 masses and hundreds of motets as well as both sacred and secular madrigals. The Missa Papae Marcelli is often referred to as having saved polyphony from eternal ban?ishment. The zealous Cardinals at the Council of Trent decreed that a simplification of musi?cal and liturgical matters was necessary. The obscuring of the text was a particular worry in lavish polyphonic musical settings. Additionally, using paraphrase Mass techniques using secular melodies did not sit well with the high ideals of the Cardinals. Palestrina honors the short-termed reign (only three weeks) of Pope Marcellus by naming this Mass for him, and demonstrated that the text could be clear even in polyphony. The composition probably dates from 1556 and was first published in 1557. Palestrina sets the traditional "Ordinary" of the Mass: Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, and Benedictus, and the Agnus Dei, where com?posers often gave two or three settings to be performed; here Palestrina composes an Agnus Dei I and Agnus Dei II. The style is elegant and the word accentuation well set. Set for six voic?es, Palestrina splashes in variety with the intro?duction of musical passages for fewer voices, such as the serene four-voiced Benedictus. At the Agnus Dei II he enriches the texture by adding a seventh voice. The second half of tonight's program pro?vides musical examples of other prolific 16th-century composers. William Byrd was England's most noted (Roman) Catholic composer. Having studied under Thomas Tallis, he was organist of Lincoln Cathedral and a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal, and wrote for both the Anglican and Catholic traditions. His motet Tribulationes civitatum is composed in three sections and comes from the collection for five voices printed in 1589 as Cantiones Sacrae. The text pleads for help from God for those suffering great tribulations, and is set with great sensitivity, like a personal expression for those persecuted in England for their Catholicism. In Josquin des Pres we consider a composer from the earlier Franco-Flemish school who enjoyed international acclaim. Like Palestrina, he sang in the Papal choir in Rome. After the highly decorated and complicated vocal lines of his predecessors, his style was considered musi-ca reservata. We hear his Ave Maria, a four-voiced gem of restrained simplicity, and one of the most popular Marian devotional pieces sung today. Tu solus quifacis mirabilia follows, a four-voiced motet in two parts printed by Petrucci in Moteti De Passione (1503). It shows something of the diversity of Josquin, from the opening and closing block chords to the chan?son-like treatment opening the second part. John Sheppard was Informator Choristarum at Magdalen College Oxford in 1543, and subsequently a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal. In manus tuas is a respond used at the Office of Compline set from Passion Sunday to Maundy Thursday. Plainchant alter?nates with three-voiced polyphony, where the writing is typical of the period, full of vitality and cross-rhythms. Robert Fayrfax was also a Gentleman of the Chapel Royal. Skilled at vocal imitation and cantus firmus techniques, he was awarded the first doctorate in music conferred by Oxford University. The plainchant cantus firmus of the Missa Tecum principium is taken from the antiphon for the second Vespers for Christmas. The Agnus Dei typifies his vibrant composi?tional style, and completes tonight's historical retrospective of Renaissance polyphony. Program note by Andrew King, O 2004 Peter Phillips has made an impressive if unusual reputation for himself in dedicating his life's work to the research and performance of Renaissance sacred music. Having won a scholarship to Oxford in 1972, Peter Phillips studied Renaissance music with David Wulstan and Denis Arnold and gained experience in con?ducting small vocal ensembles, already beginning his experi?mentation with the less familiar parts of the repertoire. In addition to The Tallis Scholars, Mr. Phillips contin- Peter Phillips ues tQ WQrk wjth groups around the world and gives numerous master classes and choral workshops. Recent engagements have taken him to the US, Spain, Siberia, and Taiwan. Mr. Phillips has made numerous television and radio broadcasts throughout Europe and North America. Peter Phillips is also the Director of the Oakham International Summer School, a choral course dedicated to exploring our great heritage of renaissance choral music and to developing a performance style appropriate to it, as pioneered by The Tallis Scholars. Tonight's performance marks Peter Phillips' fourth appearance under VMS auspices. Mr. Phillips made his UMS debut in April 1996. The Tallis Scholars were founded in 1973 by their director, Peter Phillips. Through their recordings and concert performances, the ensemble has estab?lished themselves as leading exponents of Renaissance sacred music. Their exploration of the depth and variety of this repertoire has reached a worldwide audience. Peter Phillips has worked with the ensemble to create, through excellent tuning and blend, the purity and clarity of a sound that he feels best serves the Renaissance repertoire, allowing every detail of the musical lines to be heard. It is the result?ing beauty of sound for which The Tallis Scholars have become renowned. This glorious sound has been captured by their extensive discography, which can be heard on Gimell Records. Current season highlights include appear?ances at the Salzburg Festival, Bath Festival, Milan Cathedral Festival, at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow, and at the BBC Proms in London. The 0304 season also features two world pre?mieres of works written for 40 voices, four US tours, and the ensemble's 10th tour of Japan. Tonight's performance marks The Tallis Scholars' fourth appearance under UMS auspices. The ensemble made their UMS debut in April 1996.

The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra appears by arrangement with ICM Artists, Ltd. Large print programs are available upon request. The Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra is led by pianist Arturo O'Farrill, the son of the pioneering composer and bandleader Chico O'Farrill. Arturo O'Farrill was born in Mexico and grew up in New York City. Educated at the Manhattan School of Music and the Brooklyn College Conservatory, Mr. O'Farrill played piano with the Carla Bley Big Band from 1979 through 1983. He then went on to develop as a solo performer with a wide spectrum of artists including Wynton Marsalis, Dizzy Gillespie, Steve Turre, Papo Vazquez, The Fort Apache Band, Lester Bowie, and Harry Belafonte. In 1995, Mr. O'Farrill agreed to direct the band that preserved much of his father's music, Chico O'Farrill's Afro Cuban Jazz Orchestra, which has been in resi?dence at New York City's Birdland for the past few years as well as performing throughout the world. Besides recording three albums as a leader for Milestone Records, 32 Jazz, and M & I (Bloodlines, A Night in Tunisia, and Cumana Bop), Mr. O'Farrill has appeared on numerous records including Habanera with Alberto Shiroma, and the soundtrack to the critically-acclaimed movie Calk 54. Arturo O'Farrill was a special guest soloist at three landmark Jazz at Lincoln Center concerts --Afro-Cuban Jazz: Chico O'Farrill's Afro-Cuban Jazz Orchestra, November 1995; Con Alma: The Latin Tinge in Big Band Jazz, September 1998; and the 2001 Jazz at Lincoln Center Gala: The Spirit of Tito Puente, November 2001. In March 2002, he was also the featured artist in Jazz at Lincoln Center's Jazz in the Schools Tour, when he led a Latin jazz quintet for 24 educational perform?ances that reached over 5,000 people through?out New York City metropolitan schools. He again participated in this educational tour in October 2002. Tonight's performance marks Arturo O'Farrill's UMS debut. Jazz at Lincoln Center inaugurated the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra (ALJO) in the 0203 concert season. During the inaugural season, the ensemble per?formed at venues in the Bronx, Brooklyn, and Manhattan in New York City. The ALJO debuted in a performance at Battery Park in lower Manhattan with the Juilliard Jazz Orchestra and the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra in a special Fourth of July concert in 2002. The new ensemble helps to continue the long tradition of artistic collaboration between jazz and Latin musicians, supporting a new generation of composers, arrangers, and instru?mentalists while still performing the classics of the Afro-Latin jazz tradition. Tonight's performance marks the Afro-Latin Jazz Orchestra's UMS debut.

Gratias aginius tibi propter magnam gloriani tuam, D omine Deus, Rex caelestis, Deus Pater omnipotens. Doniine Fili unigenite, Jesu Christe; Doniine Deus, Agnus Dei, Filius Patris, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis; qui tollis peccata mundi, suscipe deprecationem nostram; qui sedes ad dexteram Patris, miserere nobis. Quoniam tu solus Sanctus; tu solus Dominus; tu solus altissimus, Jesu Christe, cum Sancto Spiritu, in gloria Dei Patris. Amen. Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Lord, have mercy. Glory be to God on high, and in earth peace, goodwill towards men. We praise thee; we bless thee; we worship thee; we glorify thee. We give thanks to thee for thy great glory, O Lord God, heavenly king, God the Father almighty. O Lord the only-begotten Son, Jesu Christ; O Lord God, Iamb of God, Son of the Father, that takest away the sins of the world, have mercy upon us; thou that takest away the sins of the world, receive our prayer; thou that sittest at the right hand of God the Father, have mercy upon us. For thou only art Holy; thou only art the Lord; thou only, O Christ, with the Holy Ghost, art Most High in the glory of God the Father. Amen. Credo Credo in unum Deurn, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium et invisibilium. Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum, et ex Pat re natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo; Lumen de Lumine; Deum verum de Deo vero; genitum, non factum; consubstantialem Patri; per quern omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram saluteni descendit de caelis, et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto, ex Maria Virgine, et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis sub Pontio Pilato; passus et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die secundum Scripturas; et ascendit in caelum, sedet ad dexteram Patris; et iterum venturus est cum gloria judicare vivos et mortuos; cuius regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum et vivificantem, qui ex Patre Filioque procedit; qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoraturet conglorificatur, qui locutus est per prophetas; Et un.iiii sanctam catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum, et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen. Sanctus Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaotli. Pleni sunt caeli et terra gloria tua. Hosamia ill excelsis. I believe in one God, the Father almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all things visible and invisible. And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only-begotten Son of God, begotten of his Father before all worlds. God of God; Light of Light; very God of very God; begotten, not made: being of one substance with the Father; by whom all things were made. Who for us men, and for our salvation, came down from heaven, and was incarnate by the Holy Ghost of the Virgin Mary, and was made man. And was crucified also for us under Pontius Pilate; he suffered death and was buried. And the third day he rose again according to the Scriptures; and ascended into heaven, and is seated at the right hand of the Father; and he shall come again with glory to judge both the quick and the dead; whose kingdom shall have no end. And I believe in the Holy Ghost, the Lord, and giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son is worshipped and glorified, who spoke by the prophets. And I believe in one holy, catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one baptism for the remission of sins. And I look for the resurrection of the dead, and the life of the world to come. Amen. Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God of hosts. Heaven and earth are full of thy glory. Glory be to thee, O Lord most high. Benedictus Benedictus qui venit in nomine Domini. Hosanna in excelsis. Agnus Dei Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, miserere nobis. Agnus Dei, qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem. Blessed is he that cometh in name of the Lord. Hosanna in the highest. O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us. O Lamb of God, that takes away the sins of the world, grant us thy peace. Tnbulationes civitatum William Byrd Tribualtiones civitatum audivimus quas passae sunt, et defecimus. Domine ad te sunt oculi nostri, ne pereamus. Timor et hebetudo mentis cecedir super nos, et super liberos nostros: ipsi montes nolunt recipere fugajn nostram. Domine, miserere. Nos enim pro peccatis nostris haec patimur. Aperi oculos tuos Domine, et vidi afflictionem nostram. We have heard of the trials which the cities have suffered, and have lost heart. Our eyes are fixed on thee O Lord, and do not wander. Fear and confusion have fallen upon us, and upon our children: even the mountains offer us no refuge. Lord, have mercy. For it is because of our sins that we are suffering these things. Open thine eyes O Lord, and behold our affliction. Ave Maria Josquin des Prts Ave Maria gratia plena: Dominus tecuni, Virgo serena. Ave cuius conceptio, solemni plena gaudio, caelestia, terrestria, nova replet laetitia. Ave cuius nativitas, nostra fuit solemnitas, ut lucifer lux oriens, verum solem praeveniens. Ave pia humilitas, sine viro fecunditas, cuius annunciatio, nostra fuit salvatio. Ave vera virginitas, immaculata castitas, cuius purificatio, nostra fuit purgatio. Ave praeclara omnibus angelicis virtutibus, cuius fuit assumptio nostra glorificatio. O mater Dei, memento mei. Amen. Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee, fair Virgin. Hail thou whose conception, full of joy, fills us anew with heavenly and earthly joy. Hail thou whose birth was our festival, as a light bringing light, rising, anticipating the true sun. Hail, true humility, whose fertility was not given by man, whose annunciation was our sal?vation. Hail, true virginity, immaculate chastity, whose purification was our cleansing. I [ail, thou who art famous for all angelic virtues, whose assumption was our glorification. O mother of God, remember me. Amen. Tu solus qui facis mirabilia Josquin dcs Pris (Prinia pars) Tu solus qui facis mirabilia. Tu solus creator qui creasti nos. Tu solus redemptor qui redemisti nos sanguine tuo preciosissimo. Ad te solum configimus. In te solum confidimus, Nee aliuin adoramuys, Jesu Christe. Ad te prcccs efTundimus. Exaudi quod supplicajnus, Et concede quod pctimus, Rex benigne. (Secunda pars) D'Ung aultre amer, Nobis esset fallacia: D'Ung aultre amer, Magna esset stultitia et peccatum. Audi nostra suspiria, Reple nos tua gratia, O rex regum, Ut ad tua servitia Sistamus cum laetilia in aeternum. (First Part) You alone are the one who makes miracles. You alone are the creator who made us. You alone are the redeemer who redeemed us With your most precious blood. To you alone do we fly for refuge. In you alone do we place our trust, And we worship no other, O Jesus Christ. To you we pour out our prayers. Listen to what we ask, And grant what we seek, O generous King. (Second Part) By another love, We would be deceived; With another love, Our foolishness and our sin would be great. Hear our sighs, Fill us with your grace, O King of Kings, That we may keep steadfast to your service With gladness for ever.
