m he renowned Guarneri String
? Quartet has circled the globe count__?_ less times since it was formed in 1964, playing in the world's most prestigious halls in North and South America, Mexico, Europe, Asia, and Australia. Their 40th anniver?sary is being celebrated during the 0304 and 0405 seasons, in which they continue to tour extensively throughout the US and Europe.
In the 0304 season, celebrations included performing a Beethoven cycle during their annual Metropolitan Museum of Art sixconcert series, instituted in 1965. In the current season, they continue the Metropolitan Museum tradi?tion with a series of performances with invited special guests, each of whom will perform with them in a work by Antonin Dvorak. Founding cellist David Soyer joins his former colleagues to play Schubert's String Quintet in C Major, D. 956 on several occasions as part of these special seasons. In January 2004, the Guarneri received the Richard J. Bogomolny National Service Award from Chamber Music America. This is CMA's highest honor, given annually to an indi
vidual or ensemble for a lifetime of service and achievement in the field.
Last month, one of the culminating events of the Guarneri's Anniversary was a performance in Lincoln Center's Alice Tully Hall, presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center. In addition to this public performance, there were other events such as a roundtable discussion and a quartet masterclass with several young ensembles from leading music institutions. And finally, this evening, the Guarneri will receive the Ford Honors Distinguished Artist Award from the University Musical Society of the University of Michigan where they have performed 29 times over the past 40 years.
In addition to mastering the finest works in the existing quartet repertoire, the Guarneri String Quartet is committed to performing and popularizing works by today's foremost composers. During the 0304 season, they gave the first performance of String Quartet No. 5 (In Search of La Vita Nuova) written for them by the awardwinning American composer Richard
Danielpour. Mr. Danielpour had previously written Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra, commissioned by the National Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and written expressly for the Guarneri String Quartet. The piece was premiered with the NSO at the Kennedy Center under the direction of Leonard Slatkin in January 2000 followed by its New York premiere at Carnegie Hall later that same month. During the 0102 season, the Guarneri gave the premiere performances of Lukas Foss' String Quartet No. 5.
The Quartet has been featured on many television and radio specials, documentaries, and educational presentations both in North America and abroad. They have been inter?viewed by Charles Kuralt on CBS's nationwide television program Sunday Morning. A fulllength film entitled High Fidelity The Guarneri String Quartet was released nationally, to great critical and public acclaim, in the fall of 1989 (the film was directed and produced by Allan Miller who was also the directorproducer of the Academy Awardwinning documentary From Mozart to Mao, which examined Isaac Stern's visit to China). The Quartet is also the subject of various books including Quartet by Helen Drees Ruttencutter (Lippincott & Crowell, 1980), The Art of Quartet Playing: the Guarneri in Conversation with David Blum (Alfred A. Knopf, 1986), and Arnold Steinhardt's Indivisible by Four: A String Quartet in Pursuit of Harmony (Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 1998).
In 1982, Mayor Koch presented the Quartet with the first New York Seal of Recognition. The Quartet was awarded Honorary Doctorate degrees by the University of South Florida (1976) and the State University of New York (1983). In 1992, the Guarneri String Quartet became the only quartet to receive the presti?gious Award of Merit from the Association of Performing Arts Presenters in New York City. The Quartet continues their longstanding series and residency at the University of Maryland where they are members of the faculty.
The Guarneri String Quartet has recorded for Surrounded by Entertainment, which released a CD in spring 2001 of quartets by
Ravel, Debussy, and Faure. Several of its record?ings on both RCA Red Seal and Philips have won international awards, including its recent recording of Juan Crisostomo de Arriaga's String Quartet Nos. 13 (Philips), which won the 1996 Deutsche Schallplattenkritik Award in Germany. Among its other awardwinning recordings are collaborations with such artists as Artur Rubinstein, Pinchas Zukerman, and Boris Kroyt and Mischa Schneider of the Budapest Quartet. They have also recorded Mendelssohn's String Quartet No. 3 on the Arabesque label and their firstever recording of the great Mendelssohn Octet, Op. 20, in collaboration with the Orion String Quartet.
For over 40 years, the musicians of the Guarneri have been among the high?estranking aristocrats in the chamber music world. The Guarneri String Quartet made their UMS debut on February 25, 1971 in Rackham Auditorium in a pro?gram which included works by Beethoven, Stravinsky, Webern, Josef Suk, and Schumann. During the past 34 years, the Quartet has performed 18 standalone concerts in Ann Arbor as well as two com?plete Beethoven quartet cycles: the first cycle spanning five performances during the 197677 UMS season, and a second complete cycle spanning six performances over three successive seasons beginning in the 198485 season. During the 1981 win?ter season, the Guarneri appeared twice on the UMS Chamber Arts Series in programs consisting entirely of compositions by Bela Bartok. In November 1996, the Guarneri appeared alongside the Orion String Quartet in a program featuring Mendelssohn's Octet, Op. 20. Tonight we celebrate the Guarneri String Quartet's 40th anniversary season with the Quartet's 30th appearance under UMS auspices.
yv ecognized as one of the world's I-distinguished cellists, David Soyer J. L started his career as soloist with The Philadelphia Orchestra. Subsequently, he has been soloist with the Dallas, Utah, Denver, and Hartford Symphony Orchestras and has appeared in recital with Rudolf Serkin, Peter Serkin, Mieczyslaw Horzowski, and Andras Schiff. He was a member of the New Music Quartet, the Guilet Quartet, the Marlboro Trio, and was a founding member of the worldrenowned Guarneri String Quartet, now in its 40th year.
Mr. Soyer has recorded for RCA Victor, Philips, Arabesque, and the Vanguard labels. He has received many international awards and two honorary doctorates. He is on the faculties of the Curtis Institute of Music, Boston University, Manhattan School of Music, and The Juilliard School. He is a senior member of the Executive Committee of the Marlboro School of Music in Marlboro, Vermont.
Tonight's performance and tribute marks David Soyer's 30th appearance under UMS auspices. As founding cellist of the Guarneri String Quartet, Mr. Soyer made his UMS debut with the Quartet in February 1971 in Rackham Auditorium.
String Quartet in F Major, K. 168
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Born January 27, 1756 in Salzburg, Austria
Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
In the summer of 1773, when Mozart was 17, he traveled with his father to Vienna for a 10week stay. No doubt the elder Mozart, ever ambitious for his son, was hopeful of securing a good position for him in the musical capital of Europe. While he was there, the young com?poser was introduced to the Empress, had a Mass of his performed, played a violin concerto, and perhaps most importantly from the point of view of his own musical development, came into contact with the latest music of the great Haydn.
Also during the visit, Mozart composed a set of six string quartets of his own. These pieces are noticeably influenced by the newly serious Haydn style, most particularly in the incorporation of counterpoint into the fourpart texture. It was a special facet of Mozart's genius that he was able to absorb influences from so many sources and still make his music so very much his own.
The String Quartet in F Major, K. 168, is the first of this set. The opening movement incorporates a dizzying variety of ideas, which Mozart manages to make completely coherent and unified. The forte piano markings (twice in a bar in many passages) are an indication of the composer's striving for expression.
Even more remarkable, however, is the fminor "Andante," with its rich sound, its expressive mien, and the unusual direction (for the time) that the players are to apply mutes to their instruments.
The "Menuetto" is delicate and courtly, especially with its brief passages of duet texture. The central Trio section adopts the color con?trast of a new key and imitative entries.
Formal counterpoint comes to the fore in the Finale, which is a real fugue. No doubt this movement, too, was inspired by Haydn, for three of Haydn's Opus 20 quartets also have fugal finales. This piece of Mozart's is a little selfconsciously clever, but it is as such highly effective.
Cello Quintet in C Major, D. 956
Franz Schubert
Born January 31, 1797 in Himmelpfortgrund,
Austria Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna
The high esteem in which performers and audi?ences hold Schubert's Cello Quintet is perhaps best summarized by his biographer John Reed, who stated that the Cello Quintet is "not only essential Schubert, not only his greatest piece of chamber music, but on any reckoning a supremely poetic expression of the romantic spirit in music."
Schubert seems to have followed the Mozartian model in composing a string quintet, although, unlike Mozart, he added a second cello to the standard ensemble rather than a second viola. Schubert leaves the opening of the first movement harmonically ambiguous, hesi?tantly touching on the tonic key before embark?ing on some tonal wanderings that are a hallmark not only of this work, but of his late style in general. The first theme in this sonataform movement, a jaunty contrapuntal passage reworked from an earlier Fantasia for violin and piano, quickly gives way to the famous second theme, a glorious cello duet in Eflat that is the emotional center of the movement.
Jack Westrup once noted that this "robust and courageous" Cello Quintet is "illuminated by shafts of tenderness that noone, having once heard them, can ever forget." Undoubtedly he was referring to the second movement "Adagio," one of the most sublime moments in the entire chamber repertoire. It's haunting yet gentle opening remains imprinted on the listener long after the sounds have died away. Despite its seeming simplicity, such music is extraordinarily difficult to write. The slow pace lays everything open to view, but in so doing, only demon?strates Schubert's perfect control of his resources.
The third movement "Scherzo" and "Trio" is almost a mirror image of the preceding "Adagio." In each, the central sections both jux?tapose contrasting expressive worlds. The "Scherzo" is heavy and physical, while the "Trio"
Sally A. Cushing
(l I MS will present Ticket Office I I Associate Sally A. Cushing A with the UMS Distinguished Service Award at this evening's 2005 Ford Honors Program, in recognition of her loy?alty, dedication, and service to UMS and to hundreds of thousands of ticket buyers. Widely considered the "the voice of UMS" to patrons who order their tickets over the phone, Sally will retire at the end of May after nearly 37 years of service to UMS.
Sally began her career with the University in February 1962 in the Depart?ment of Internal Medicine and joined the two other fulltime members of the UMS staff on September 9, 1968. She began as a ticket seller and bookkeeper, but notes that "in those days, we all did everything."
Sally's success directly contributed to the UMS Ticket Office's recognition as "Box Office of the Year" this past January by INTIX, the International Ticketing Association. INTIX represents over 1,200 ticketing professionals in the performing arts, theater, entertainment, professional sports, and college and university athletics. INTIX noted the UMS Ticket Office's successful handling of the reseating of patrons in Hill Auditorium and the high level of customer satisfaction in audience surveys among other factors in determin?ing this year's award recipient.
Sally will not be making a clean break from UMS, as she'll return in the fall, work?ing the phones as always, at a more relaxed pace one or two days a week.
normally the section where Schubert allows a moment of spiritual release, a lilting dance, or lyrical point of repose is wistful and question?ing, in both harmonic language and emotional disposition.
In the Finale, Schubert shows that his humor is not all lost in pathos. The dance begins in c minor, but another cello duet soon establishes the tonic C Major, and before long the sounds of country fiddles and droning accordions enliven the dance without any hint of irony.
Octet in Eflat Major, Op. 20 (excerpt)
Felix Mendelssohn
Born on February 3, 1809 in Hamburg, Germany
Died November 4, 1847 in Leipzig
Mendelssohn wrote his Octet for four violins, two violas, and two cellos in 1825, the same year Beethoven composed his aminor quartet (Op. 132). At 55, Beethoven was nearing the end of his career (and he knew it); the 16yearold Mendelssohn was just starting his. As he noted in the manuscript: "This Octet must be played by all instruments in symphonic orchestral style. Pianos and fortes must be strictly observed and more strongly emphasized than is unusual in pieces of this character."
We are not sure what Mendelssohn meant by "pieces of this character," since it seems that no one had written string octets of this sort before. Mendelssohn treated the eight players as a single, integrated unit a wholly unprecedent?ed procedure as far as anyone knows.
To appreciate the way Mendelssohn expanded upon Classical style in his Octet, one needs only to compare the opening of the work with the opening of Haydn's Quartet in Bflat Major from Op. 76, known as the "Sunrise" on account of its gently rising first theme. Mendelssohn has often been said to have been inspired by that opening, but Haydn's theme is to Mendelssohn's what a sunrise would be to a solar flare! These first measures are a stroke of genius fully matched by the remainder of the movement.
The Sphinx Quartet fills the concert stage with energy that excites and enriches a widespread audience. Recognized soloists in their own right and distinguished alumni of the national Sphinx Competition for young Black and Latino string players, the Sphinx Quartet is a compellingly dynamic presence. Formed in 2002, the ensem?ble has met with great success since its profes?sional debut the same year.
Only in their fourth year of existence as a professional ensemble, the Sphinx Quartet has already established itself as one of the leading emerging quartets in the country. They have demonstrated unrivaled dedication and proven commitment to music education as well as development of new audiences of diverse ages and cultural backgrounds.
In December 2004, the Sphinx Quartet gave their Carnegie Hall debut at Stern Auditorium. The Quartet also performed and held residencies at the MERIT Music School, People's Music School, Humanities Festival, Music In The Loft, Chicago, IL, and Andrews
University in Berrien Springs, MI, as well as at various schools and community venues in Detroit and Cleveland, presented by the Arts League of Michigan. In Spring 2004, they made their international debut at the Ruth Seaton James Hall in Bermuda, presented by the Suzuki Association of Bermuda. The Quartet also appeared in a recital at Carnegie's Weill Recital Hall through the Arts Presenters Young Performers Career Advancement Program. The Sphinx Quartet serves as senior faculty
at the Sphinx Performance Academy at Walnut Hill School, and is visiting faculty at the Sphinx Preparatory Music Institute in Detroit.
Current season engagements of the Sphinx Quartet include residencies at the Sphinx Preparatory Music Institute in Detroit and at the Sphinx Performance Academy at Walnut Hill School, as well performances at public schools in Ypsilanti and in Ann Arbor. The ensemble was invited to perform at the Michigan Council for Foundations Conference in Fall 2004. As a longterm mission, the Sphinx Quartet hopes to have an impact making diversity in classical music a reality on stage, as well as in our schools and communities.
Tonight's performance and tribute marks the Sphinx Quartet's UMS debut. Tonight's perform?ance marks Sphinx Quartet violinist Gareth Johnson's second appearance under UMS auspices. Mr. Johnson made his UMS debut in performance at the 2004 Ford Honors Program honoring Sweet Honey In The Rock.

Letter from the Jfonors Qala "Dinner Chairs
I his evening's gala dinner, part of the festivities honoring the Guarneri String Quartet, J. was planned and organized by the UMS Advisory Committee. We are a volunteer group, passionate about raising funds in support of UMS educational programs. As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Ford Honors Program, we are proud to announce that the Ford Honors Gala Dinner has raised almost one million dollars over the past decade for the UMS Education and Audience Development Program, the purpose of which is to introduce children to the arts and enrich the arts experiences of all audience members. These funds have been more than matched by the generosity of the Ford Motor Company Fund, whose support for UMS education programs over this same period has totaled $1,250,000. Without your generous support of this terrific program, we could not attain our goals. Your attendance at tonight's gala contributes to this important fundraising effort.
On behalf of the UMS Advisory Committee, we offer you our sincere thanks and best wishes for a memorable evening.

Education and Audience development Program
. triving to provide worldclass educational events and cultural exchange to the broadest y definition of the community, this past season the UMS Education and Audience Development Program continued its progressive growth and mission in many areas. Through a wide variety of partnership and collaborations with individuals and community organizations,
The UMS Youth Education Program was designated as a "Best Practice" program by ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foundation.
UMS was able to expand its commitment to audiences through a wide variety of activities designed for different ages, nationalities, and learning styles. We recognize that every single person has a unique relationship to the arts, and our role is to enhance that connection through dialogue and participation. UMS Education has been awarded the "Best Practice" award by both ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foundation. In 0405, UMS was able to offer 130 events to nearly 18,000 people as part of our Education and Audience Development program.
Youth, Teen and Family Education
A unique program developed in partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Washtenaw Intermediate School district UMS provides worldclass artistic experiences and professional development to students, young adults, teachers, and families. UMS has been in partnership with the AAPS and WISD since 1997 as part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education program. Nearly 60 events serving over 12,500 people were planned in the 0405
K12 Youth Performance Series
UMS's acclaimed onehour specially designed intheater performances for students offered eight Youth Performances this season allowing nearly 10,000 students to attend this series. Over 81 schools from 16 districts participated in UMS's Youth Performance Series.
UMS Teacher Workshop Series
UMS is part of the Kennedy Center Partners in Education Program, offering our community worldclass Kennedy Center workshop leaders, as well as workshops designed by local arts experts. Nearly 260 teachers attended UMS's teacher workshops this season.
UMS Curriculum Packets
UMS creates teacher curriculum packets, CDs, and DVDs for all of the schools participating in our diverse program. These guides have garnered national attention and are used throughout the performing arts industry.
UMS K12 School Enrichment
UMS has expanded our effort in inschool enhancement by providing additional support to the classroom teacher with trained arts pro?fessionals to teach students more effectively. Over the course of last year, UMS has facilitated over 35 of these classroom visits, affecting nearly 2,000 students.

UMS Educators of the Year
UMS would like to honor and congratulate Saundra Dunn and Katy Fillion
as the 2005 UMS Educators of the Year Awardees. Ms. Dunn and Ms. Fillion lead the Program for Independent Living Skills from the Washington Street Education Program as part of Chelsea High School in the Washtenaw Intermediate School District.
The Teachers and the program are being honored for their consistent passion for and creative involvement in the UMS Education Program.
"Through our continued involvement with UMS, even the most challenged students experience all that comes from being part of live music and drama performances.... When they graduate to the real world, unkind as it can be to some of our stu?dents, they 'fit in' at concert experiences."
Saundra Dunn, Special Education Teacher and School Psychologist, Katy Fillion, Special Education Teacher

UMS and Ann Arbor's teen center, the Neutral Zone, allowed over 100 local teens to create, perform, produce, and market a professional performance at the Power Center for Performing Arts this May.
UMS Family Series
UMS is committed to worldclass family pro?gramming with nearly 1,000 people attending our specially designed familyoriented events. UMS teamed up with other area cultural organ?izations to present the second annual Ann Arbor Family Days. This twoday event offered free and lowcost familyfriendly cultural events to members of the Ann Arbor area community in multiple venues throughout the city.
Adult and Community Education
UMS tries to serve its adult and university pop?ulations in many different and unique ways. UMS strongly emphasizes the importance of partnering with community organizations in the development of our programs. Throughout the past season, UMS partnered with over 280 individuals, community organizations, and uni?versity units to plan over 70 events. Nearly all events were free and open to the public.
Artist Residencies
The artists hold a special place at UMS, and last season was no exception. UMS facilitated many residency activities with artists and ensembles throughout the year and managed many major residencies, including the Paul Taylor Dance Company, Akira Kasai, DJ Spooky, Sam Shalabi, and the Arab World Music Festival. The oneday residency with the New York Philharmonic at the UM School of Music served nearly 1,200 people.
Adult and Community Education
UMS continued to provide a wide range of edu?cational events that would appeal to the widest variety of community members. UMS held 29 masterclasses, three public interviews, five class?room visits, five lectures, one panel discussion, two roundtable discussions, three symposiums,
members study buloh dance with Akira Kasai
five study clubs, and 18 other events including exhibits, films, and receptions. Nearly 5,000 people participated in UMS's educational exchanges.
The NETWORK: African American Arts Advocacy Committee
The NETWORK was a new initiative launched by UMS during the past season to create an opportunity for African Americans and broader communities to celebrate the worldclass artistry by today's leading African and AfricanAmerican performers and creative artists. Over 400 NETWORK members connected, socialized, and networked with the AfricanAmerican com?munity through attendance at UMS events and free preconcert receptions.
Partnership and Collaboration
UMS Education has garnered nationwide atten?tion through its commitment to partnering and collaborating with regional individuals and organizations. One such major partnering ini?tiative was with the ArabAmerican community and the University of Michigan Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies. Together, over 125 events and 20,000 people participated in the Arab World Music Festival and the UM Cultural Treasures of the Middle East Theme Semester. UMS collaborates with over 100 partners each season.
