FROM THE U-M PRESIDENT
Welcome to this performance of the 129th season of the University Musical Society (UMS).
All of us at the University of Michigan are proud of UMS, the nation's oldest university-related performing arts presenter that is distinctive nationally in several ways:
UMS has commissioned more than 50 new works since 1990, demonstrating its commit?ment to supporting creative artists in all disciplines. Two of these UMS commissions featured this term are works by renowned U-M composers: MacArthur Fellow Bright Sheng's String Quartet No. 5 for the Emerson String Quartet on January 4 and Pulitzer Prize-winning William Bolcom's Octet for Double Quartet for the Guarneri and Johannes String Quartets on February 9.
In the past three seasons, 54 of UMS pre?sentations have featured artists making their UMS debuts, a measure of UMS's commit?ment to new and emerging artists, and 55 have featured artists from outside the United States, highlighting UMS's belief that artistic expression can foster greater understanding and appreciation of diverse cultures. In con?junction with the University's ChinaNow Theme Year, UMS presents pianist Yuja Wang on January 20 and pipa player Wu Man on February 10, each in their UMS debut per?formance.
UMS has worked in partnership with more than 50 U-M academic units and more than 150 U-M faculty members during the past three years, in addition to more than 100 community-based partners. One of the most notable partnerships for UMS this season is with our School of Music, Theatre & Dance. Together they have brought the renowned contemporary chamber music ensemble
eighth blackbird to the campus on four occasions during which the group has worked with hundreds of students on campus and in the community. Their residency culminates in their UMS debut performance on April 10.
UMS is the only university-related presenter in the nation to have been honored by both the Wallace Foundation with its Excellence Award and the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation with its Leading College and University Presenter Award in the inaugural year of both endowment programs, a measure of the esteem with which UMS is regarded in the presenting field.
Thank you for attending this UMS perform?ance. Please join us for other UMS events and for performances, exhibitions, and cultural activ?ities offered by our faculty and students in U-M's many outstanding venues. To learn more about arts and culture at Michigan, visit the University's website at www.umich.edu and click on "Museums and Cultural Attractions."

Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT
Welcome! It's great to have you with us at this UMS performance. I hope you enjoy the experience and will come to more UMS events between now and May 10 when we close our 200708 season with our annual Ford Honors Program. This year's program features a recital by flutist James Galway followed by a wonderful dinner organized by our Advisory Committee. You'll find all of our performances listed on page 2 of your program insert.
Our Fall Season included 31 performances featuring artists and ensembles representing 19 countries around the world. Wherever possible, we like to create opportunities for our audience members to meet the artists. Here is a sampling of photos from several of the events from the Fall Season:

Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions, comments, or problems. If you don't see me in the lobby, send me an e-mail message at kenfisch@umich.edu or call me at 734.647.1174.
Very best wishes,

FROM UMS CHAIRMAN, CARL HERSTEIN
It is inspiring and humbling to serve on the Board of UMS, which is widely recognized as one of the world's leading arts presenters. UMS is committed to performance, education, and the creation of new works, and has a 128-year history of excellence in all three areas. Our task at UMS is to advance the arts, to the benefit of the national and international arts communities, the University of Michigan, our local community, and our present and future patrons.
Each of us has an important role to play in this endeavor, whether as an audience member at a performance or an educational activity, a donor, or a volunteer member of the Board, Senate, Advisory Committee, or the new UMS National Council, which is enhancing our visibility around the country. We all are fortunate to have an opportunity to contribute to the special history of UMS.
Arts organizations exist because those who came before us chose to take advantage of the same kind of opportunity. To me, this is exemplified by some?thing that I was once told by a producer before a theatrical performance. He took us into the theater and said that, despite the not insignificant cost of our tickets, we should know there was the equivalent of a $50 bill on every seat-the contribution made by others enabling us to enjoy that presentation.
The same is true for UMS. About half of the cost of what we do comes from ticket sales. The remainder comes from you and your predecessors in this hall. Some sat in the second balcony as students and experienced the transformative power of the arts. Some sat with friends for 30 years in the same section of Hill. And some witnessed children being excited and inspired at a youth performance. All have chosen to leave money on their seats.
When you take your seat, think about what others have done that makes your experience possible. I hope you will be inspired to contribute to the UMS legacy. Consider your opportunity to "leave money on your seat," through both your participation and financial contributions. Be an active part of UMS, and when a member of the next generation arrives, they will be thankful that they got your seat.
Sincerely,
Carl W. Herstein

UMS HISTORY
Through a commitment to Presentation, Education, and the Creation of new work, the University Musical Society (UMS) serves Michigan audiences by bringing to our community an ongo?ing series of world-class artists, who represent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over its 128 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally recognized performing arts pre?senters. 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 new millen?nium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry 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 mem?bers also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and through?out the year presented a series of concerts fea?turing 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 theater. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and other collaborative proj?ects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction, and innovation. UMS now hosts over 50 performances and more than 125 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in five differ?ent Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded their charge over their 128-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience, as well as performances of John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg.
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, founda?tion and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
UMS VENUES AND BURTON MEMORIAL TOWER
Hill Auditorium
After an 18-month $38.6-million dollar renova?tion overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects, Hill Auditorium re-opened to the public in January 2004. 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, reworking of the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improvements to landscaping.
Interior renovations included the creation of additional restrooms, the improvement of barrier-free circulation by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement
of seating to increase patron comfort, introduc?tion of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infra?structure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Hill Auditorium seats 3,575.
Michigan Theater
The historic Michigan Theater opened January 5 1928 at the peak of the vaudevillemovie 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 ir 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 addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 200C
Power Center
The Power Center for the Performing Arts grew out of 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 was 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
Lniversity priorities "a new theater" was men-toned. The Powers were immediately interested, realizing that state and federal governments were unlikely to provide financial support for t ie construction of a new theater.
Opening in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by "ruman Capote), the Power Center achieved the seemingly contradictory combination of providing a soaring interior space with a inique level of intimacy. Architectural features i iclude 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 presently fea-tjres two hand-woven tapestries: Modern 'tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes (Arabesque) by Pablo Picasso.
The Power Center seats approximately ,400 people.
Arbor Springs Water Company is generously providing omplimentary water to UMS artists backstage at the lower Center throughout the 0708 season.
jckham 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, and Newberry Hall, the current iiome of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of luman history and human thought, died in 1933, his will awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School which nouses Rackham Auditorium, but also to estab-ish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more
emarkable than the size of the gift is the fact :hat neither he nor his wife ever attended the Jniversity 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.
St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church
Dedicated in 1969, 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 1,000 people and has ample free parking. In 1994, St. Francis pur?chased 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 con?templation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, Burton Memorial Tower is one of the most well-known University of Michigan and Ann Arbor landmarks. Designed by Albert Kahn in 1935 as a memorial to U-M President Marion Leroy Burton, the 10-story tower is built of Indiana limestone with a height of 212 feet. The carillon, one of only 23 in the world, is the world's fourth heaviest containing 55 bells and weighing a total of 43 tons. UMS has occupied administrative offices in this building since its opening, with a brief pause in the year 2000 for significant renovations.

The Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra (JLCO), composed of 15 of today's finest jazz soloists and ensemble players, has been the Jazz at Lincoln Center resident orchestra for over 13 years. Featured in all aspects of Jazz at Lincoln Center's programming, the remarkably versatile JLCO performs and leads educational events in New York, across the US, and around the world; in concert halls, dance venues, jazz clubs, public parks, river boats, and churches; and with sym?phony orchestras, ballet troupes, local students, and an ever-expanding roster of guest artists.
Education is a major part of Jazz at Lincoln Center's mission and its educational activities are coordinated with concert and JLCO tour program?ming. These programs, many of which feature JLCO members, include the celebrated Jazz for Young PeopleSM family concert series, the Essen?tially Ellington High School Jazz Band Competition & Festival, the Jazz for Young People? Curriculum, educational residencies, workshops, and concerts for students and adults worldwide. Jazz at Lincoln Center educational programs reach over 100,000 students, teachers, and general audience mem?bers.
Under Music Director Wynton Marsalis, the JLCO spends over a third of the year on tour. The big band performs a vast repertoire, from rare historic compositions to Jazz at Lincoln Center-commissioned works, including compositions and arrangements by Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Thelonious Monk, Mary Lou Williams, Billy Strayhorn, Dizzy Gillespie, and Benny Goodman, and new commissions by Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter, Joe Lovano, Chico O'Farrill, Marcus Rob?erts, and Geri Allen, as well as current and former JLCO members Wynton Marsalis, Wycliffe Gor?don, Ted Nash, and Ron Westray. Guest conduc?tors have included Benny Carter, John lewis, Ray Santos, Paquito D'Rivera, Gerald Wilson, and Lo-ren Schoenberg.
Over the last few years, the JLCO has per?formed collaborations with many of the world's leading symphony orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic, the Russian National Orches?tra, the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, the Boston, Chicago, and London Symphony Orchestras, and the Orchestra Esperimentale in Sao Paolo, Brazil.
Along with regular appearances on the Pea-body Award-winning weekly radio show Jazz at Lincoln Center Radio, JLCO has appeared on sev-
eral XM Satellite Radio live broadcasts and seven Live From Lincoln Center broadcasts, carried by PBS stations nationwide; most recently on Octo?ber 18, 2004 during the grand opening of Jazz at Lincoln Center's new home, Frederick P. Rose Hall, and on September 17, 2005 during Jazz at Lincoln Center's Higher Ground Benefit Concert. The ben?efit concert raised money for the Higher Ground Relief Fund, established by Jazz at Lincoln Center and administered through the Baton Rouge Area Foundation to benefit New Orleans musicians and music industry-related enterprises impacted by Hurricane Katrina. JLCO was also featured an episode of Great Performances entitled "Swingin' with Duke: Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis," and on a BET Jazz weekly series called Journey with Jazz at Lincoln Center, featuring performances by the JLCO around the world.
To date, 11 recordings featuring the JLCO with Wynton Marsalis have been released and internationally distributed, including the soon-to-be-released Congo Square (2007).

Piano Etude No. 4 ("Fanfares," 1985) Piano Etude No. 10 ("The Sorcerer's
Apprentice," 1994) Gyorgy Ligeti Born May 28, 1923 in Diciosanmartin
(now Tirnaveni), Romania Died June 12, 2006 in Vienna
Ligeti's 18 piano etudes are among the most ex?citing additions to the piano repertoire in the last 20 years. Here one of the greatest composers of the second half of the 20th century synthesized several decades of artistic evolution, from the Bartbkian tradition through the avant-garde of the 1960s and finally back to his Hungarian roots. Along the way, Ligeti's art had been enriched by such important external stimuli as African music (especially Pygmy), polyphony, the player-piano music of Conlon Nancarrow, and the mathemati?cal theory of fractals. Diverse as these sources may seem, they all share the idea of extreme complex?ity arising from extremely simple building blocks.
Ligeti was particularly interested in poly-rhythms, that is, the simultaneous presence of rhythmic patterns that evolve independently from one another. Needless to say, the realization of such multi-layered structures poses enormous challenges for the pianist; the reward lies in the order and unity that emerges from textures that may initially appear to be utterly chaotic.
The playful original title of the fourth etude had been "Bartoque"--in fact, Ligeti took a Bar?tbkian idea as his point of departure and ran with it. The idea is the so-called "Bulgarian rhythm" as found, for example, in Bartbk's Six Bulgarian Dances. What Bartbk called Bulgarian rhythm in?volved the alternation of rhythmic groups of twos and threes in a very fast tempo. Ligeti set this quick "one-two-three one-two one-two-three" rhythm against other asymmetrical configurations, com?bining it all with a rapidly changing succession of chords. As Richard Steinitz remarks in his book on Ligeti, these chords are all triads, consonant in themselves, but generally unrelated to one an?other. At the rate of approximately 175 chords per minute, they create what Ligeti called "consonant atonality." According to Steinitz, the magical ef?fect of the etude results from "the dance of upper partials [overtones] above so many triadic roots." Eventually, some fanfare-like figures crystallize from these "super-Bulgarian" rhythms and "su-
per-tonal" developments, inspiring the final title of the etude.
The etude "Der Zauberlehrling" (The Sor?cerer's Apprentice) makes reference to the fa?mous poem by Goethe that had earlier inspired the popular symphonic Scherzo by Paul Dukas. This time, however, the young magician seems in total control: the image has more to do with the playful sleight-of-hand of a prodigy in the occult sciences (pre-Harry Potter, of course). Initially a study in trill-like figurations, the piece gradually takes possession of the entire keyboard and ex?pands in melodic range and textural diversity until the final virtuoso flourish which confirms the suc?cessful completion of the magic trick.
Sonata in b minor, S. 178 (1852-53)
Franz Liszt
Born October 22, 1811 in Doborjan, Hungary
(now Raiding, Austria) Died July 31, 1886 in Bayreuth
Among the great composers of the 19th century, few were subject to such antagonistic impulses as Franz Liszt. Quite possibly the greatest virtuoso pi?anist of the century, Liszt also aspired to be a revo?lutionary composer and, if that were not enough, was compelled by his religious feelings to take holy orders and become an abb6 (a priest with?out actual pastoral duties at a church). A native of Hungary who identified strongly with that coun?try even though he did not speak its language, he remained a lifelong wanderer, sojourning at vari?ous times in Paris, Geneva, Weimar, Rome, and Budapest, at home everywhere and nowhere.
In his monumental sonata for piano, Liszt managed to reconcile many of these conflicting tendencies and create a work that was revolution?ary in design, virtuosic in execution, and deeply spiritual in content. As in his cycle of symphonic poems written around the same time, Liszt united all the different characters of the multi-movement sonata or symphonic form in a single movement of extended proportions. The recurrence of a num?ber of fundamental themes guaranteed organic unity while the contrasting tempi and characters provided diversity.
The sonata opens hesitatingly, with a slow descending scale that will become a constant element throughout the work. The heroic main
theme soon follows; its brilliant development leads into a melody marked "grandioso" (a hymn-like tune accompanied by massive blocks of chords). In the first of several dramatic shifts, the music tums from heroic to introspective and lyrical, yet the melodic material is the same as before (the difference is in tempo, dynamics, and accompani?ment). These two fundamental characters contin?ue to alternate, but they are continually enriched and developed with each new recurrence. On the dramatic side, we hear a set of brilliant variations on the main theme, interrupted by the power?ful "grandioso" motive. A doleful recitative calls into question the heroism of the entire passage, and the music gradually calms down to an an?dante sostenuto with an aria-like new theme. The mood, however, soon becomes more passionate, and the heroic theme retums in the shape of a fugue, with a countersubject consisting of rapid, short notes that give it a slightly satirical edge. This section, which incorporates the descending scales of the introduction, leads to a re-statement of the "grandioso" motive, even more powerful than before. At the end of a breath-taking stretta (final section in a faster tempo), the "grandioso" theme retums yet another time, as the emotional high point of the entire work. But the final word belongs to the lyrical-introspective "personality" in this drama of characters: the andante sostenuto aria is recalled, followed by an extremely quiet re?statement of the main theme, as if to suggest that the conflict is over. The descending scales from the opening are heard again, followed by a few ethereal chords. After what seemed like a voyage through a whole pianistic and emotional universe, the last note is a single, barely audible, short "B" in the extreme low register of the piano.
Liszt dedicated his sonata to Robert Schu?mann, who many years earlier had dedicated his Fantasy in C Major, Op. 17 to Liszt. By the time of this belated response, the relations of the two men had cooled, and the dedication, as one com?mentator put it, "was received with embarrass?ment." Yet neither dedication was a coincidence: both works being crucially important in the re?spective composers' oeuvres, it is understandable that they should have been chosen to honor a highly respected colleague.
Sonata for Piano, Sz. 80-BB. 88 (1926)
Bela Bart6k
Born March 25, 1881 in Nagyszentmiklos,
Hungary (now Sinnicolau Mare, Romania) Died September 26, 1945 in New York
For most of his life, Bart6k pursued three paral?lel activities, each of which might have been enough for a full-time occupation: composition, piano performance and teaching, and folk-music research. The way these three activities cross-pol?linated is evident in Bart6k's sonata for solo piano. The Beethovenian sonata idea, with which Bart6k had grown up, is realized here through a musi?cal idiom infused with elements of the folk music which the composer had been studying for almost 20 years at the time the piece was written.
The year 1926 marked the beginning of Bar-t6k's mature compositional period: he had written little in the preceding three years, but produced several major works that year, all of them involv?ing his own instrument. In the Piano Concerto No. 1, the suite Out of Doors, and the present Sonata, Bartbk explored the percussive qualities of the pi?ano, developed his special brand of chromaticism (use of all 12 tones of the scale), and articulated an entire artistic philosophy born out of the spirit of folk music. Instead of quoting any specific folk songs, Bart6k, who had analyzed and transcribed thousands of field recordings, extracted typical melodic tums from this vast corpus and placed them in new harmonic contexts. In so doing, he created a unique synthesis between the formerly disparate worlds of art and folk music.
The first movement opens with some pow?erful ostinato (stubbornly returning) rhythms and an extremely brief melody consisting of an ascending scale fragment of only three notes. By inverting, expanding, and contracting this simple motif, Bart6k devised a new approach to sonata form in which the traditional succession of first and second theme, development section, and re?capitulation are observed, yet everything is uni?fied by a relentless pulse of eighth-notes and the three-note motif.
Similar ideas--repeated notes and ascending scale fragments--underlie the second movement as well, but the character of the music this time is predominantly heavy and static. Yet a slow evo?lutionary process does get gradually underway, culminating in a fortissimo restatement of the
three-note motif, after which the music subsides and retums to the desolate repeated notes of the beginning.
The main theme of the last movement fol?lows the melodic outline typical of a particular group of Hungarian folksongs, but Bart6k gave it a highly original rhythmic shape. This melody functions as a Rondo theme, but three of the Rondo's episodes are also derived from it as variations. These episodes significantly alter the character of the theme by introducing various new rhythmic and ornamental ideas, each evok?ing a different style of folk-music performance, in turn vocal and instrumental. (Originally, Bart6k planned to include an extended bagpipe episode in this movement; this was later cut and became the "Musettes" movement of the piano suite Out of Doors.)
Sonata No. 2 in g-sharp minor. Op. 19
(1892-97) Alexander Scriabin Born January 6, 1872 in Moscow Died April 27, 1915 in Moscow
A prodigious piano student at the Moscow Con?servatory, Alexander Scriabin started composing as a teenager. His earliest works were preludes, etudes, and mazurkas strongly influenced by Chopin, but very soon he found his personal voice, stretching the boundaries of the Romantic idiom and arriving, before his untimely death at 43, at the very threshold of atonality.
The second of his 10 piano sonatas is also called "Sonata-Fantasy" as it opens with a dreamy "Andante" whose theme is interrupted by rests, creating the illusion of a free improvisation. The movement tums out to be in sonata form, but the thematic material has a loose, lyrical quality with extensive rubato (departures from a strict metric beat) and even polyrhythms where the accents of the right and left hands do not coincide--antici?pating the much more complex use Ligeti would make of the same principle 100 years later. A fur?ther surprise is that the movement doesn't end in the same key in which it began: frequently modu?lating after the initial g-sharp minor, it reaches its final cadence in E Major.
It is left to the second and last movement, a "Presto" in perpetual motion, to restore the
tonal balance. To the rapid triplet figurations of the beginning, Scriabin added a soaring, passion?ate melody in the second half of the movement, approaching that state of ecstasy to which he would devote, a few years later, one of his most celebrated compositions {The Poem of Ecstasy).
LaValse(1920)
Maurice Ravel
Born March 7, 1875 in Ciboure,
Basses-Pyrenees, France Died December 28, 1937 in Paris
Dance was always an important source of inspira?tion for Ravel. Works as different as Pavane fora Dead Princess, Le Tombeau de Couperin, Menuet sur le nom d'Haydn, Habanera, and of course Bolero, all incorporate dance rhythms of one sort or another.
Ravel was particularly fascinated by the waltz. In 1906, he started planning a large waltz-fantasy he wanted to call Wien (Vienna)--this is the work that, many years later, materialized as La Valse. As he wrote to his friend Jean Marnold in February 1906,
What I'm undertaking at the moment is not subtle: a grand waltz, a sort of homage to the memory of the great Strauss--not Richard, the other one, Johann. You know of my deep sympa?thy for these wonderful rhythms, and that I value the joie de vivre expressed by the dance far more deeply than the Franckist puritanism.
This project remained unfinished for a long time. During World War I, Ravel, an ardent French patriot voluntarily involved in military duties, could not bring himself to work on a composition named for an enemy capital. When he returned to it after war's end in 1920, the piece had be?come very different from the original conception. By that time, the Hapsburg Empire, whose old-world atmosphere Johann Strauss's great waltzes had symbolized, had collapsed. Therefore, Ravel's homage to the waltz took a decidedly tragic turn.
La Valse--as the piece was called in its final version--is unique among Ravel's dance-inspired
works by virtue of its larger proportions. It is much more than a dance; it is also a reflection about dance: the representation of its birth, its life, and its apotheosis, as Ravel himself had said.
Ravel had the following paragraph printed in the score:
At first the scene is dimmed by a kind of swirling mist, through which one discerns, vaguely and intermittently, the waltzing couples. Little by little the vapors disperse, the illumination grows brighter, revealing an immense ball?room filled with dancers: the blaze of the chandeliers comes to full splendor. An Imperial court about 1855.
Like the great Strauss waltzes (On the Beau?tiful Blue Danube, for example), La Valse is really a whole set of waltzes, with a number of melo?dies following one another in close successsion. Yet Ravel takes the waltz melodies on a dramatic journey Strauss never dreamt of. The sky darkens gradually and one of the tender little strains is stirred up to a state of hysteria. The tempo ac?celerates, the dissonances become harsher and harsher. The next-to-the-last measure contains four quarter-notes instead of three--that's how far we have gotten from the original idea of the waltz. As one commentator has written, "The fi?nal two measures....are surely meant to symbol?ize the destruction of the past represented by the waltz....Three-quarter time...had become a casu?alty, too."
La Valse is best known in the orchestral ver?sion; yet Ravel's own piano arrangement is no less effective, if only for the extreme virtuoso demands placed on the pianist.
At age 20, Yuja Wang has already es?tablished herself as one of the most sig?nificant artists of her generation. Born in Beijing in 1987, Ms. Wang was drawn to piano at the age of six when she began studying music in China. She eventually enrolled at the Central Conservatory of Music (Beijing) and won prizes in many regional competitions within China, as well as competitions in Spain and Germany. In 2001 she won first prize in the Junior Group of the Seil-er International Piano Competition, and won third prize-winner and was the recipient of the Special
Yuja Wang
Jury Award at the First Japan Sendai International Music Competition.
Ms. Wang's first performances with major North American orchestras began in 2005. In February her career had a major leap forward when the National Arts Centre Orchestra asked her to replace Radu Lupu at the last moment and perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4, con?ducted by Pinchas Zukerman. Ms. Wang was im?mediately re-engaged to perform Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 7.
Her career entered a new phase in 2006 as she made her debut with the New York Philhar?monic; the Houston, San Francisco, and Chicago Symphonies; and the NHK Symphony Orchestra in Japan. Ms. Wang first performed with New York at the Vail Festival in July 2006 and then again joined the orchestra in Tokyo with Lorin Maazel conducting, performing Liszt's Piano Concerto No. 1. In September, she performed Ravel's Piano
Concerto in G Major with the San Francisco Sym?phony, Michael Tilson Thomas conducting, and returned in April 2007 to perform Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 2 with Charles Dutoit. Ms. Wang collaborated further with Dutoit at both the Chicago and NHK symphonies where she made her debuts performing Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 2.
In January 2007, Ms. Wang toured to Leeds, UK and the Netherlands with the St. Petersburg Philharmonic and Maestro Yuri Temirkanov per?forming Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 7. In May she returned to China to perform with both the China Philharmonic (Beijing) and the Guang?zhou Symphony. She made her first recital tour in Germany in October 2006.
Ms. Wang has attended three Morningside Music Bridge summer programs (1999-2001) at Calgary's Mount Royal College. In the summers of 2002 and 2003 she worked with renowned piano pedagogue John Perry at the Aspen Music Festi?val, where she won the concerto competition in her first year of attendance. She is a regular par?ticipant at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival.
For the past four years Ms. Wang has attended The Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia as a student of Gary Graffman. In September 2005, she received the prestigious 2006 Gilmore Young Artist Award.

Regarded as one of hip-hop's most intro?spective and insightful artists, Mos Def has shaped a career that transcends music genres and artistic media. A child of hip-hop's Golden Era, the native Brooklynite spent his child?hood imbedded in the culture surrounding him as well as absorbing knowledge from across the artistic spectrum.
With the release of Universal Magnetic (1996) Mos became an underground favorite in the hip-hop world, leading to his legendary col?laboration with Talib Kweli. The two formed Black Star whose debut album, Mos Def and Talib Kweli Are...Black Star, would become one of the most critically acclaimed hip-hop albums of all time. Mos followed that release with his 1999 solo de?but. Black On Both Sides, which was certified gold and credited by critics as bringing hip-hop back to its soapbox roots.
As with his music, Mos has demonstrated insight and passion with his acting career, appear?ing in Spike Lee's Bamboozled, MTV's Carmen: A Hip Hopera, 2002's critically acclaimed Monster's Ball, Showtime, and the 2002 romantic comedy Brown Sugar, for which he received an NAACP Image Award nomination. In addition Mos has served as the host, music supervisor, and co-ex?ecutive producer for the HBO series Def Poetry, which returned for its sixth season in 2007. He
has also served as a writer, producer, and actor on the MTV sketch-comedy series Lyricist Lounge. Mos completed his Broadway debut in 2002 in the Tony-nominated, Pulitzer Prize-winning, Topdog I Underdog. Mos re-teamed with Topdog playwright Suzan Lori Parks and director George Wolfe for the off-Broadway play, Fucking A, for which he was awarded an Obie Award.
In 2003, Mos Def starred in Paramount Pic?tures' The Italian Job, alongside Ed Norton, Mark Wahlberg, and Charlize Theron. Mos Def starred opposite Alan Rickman in the critically acclaimed HBO movie Something the Lord Made, for which he has received nominations for an Emmy, Golden Globe, NAACP, and Golden Satellite Award.
In 2004, Mos Def released his highly an?ticipated and critically acclaimed sophomore solo release. The New Danger (Geffen Records). The album was met with praise from both critics and fans alike, with Rolling Stone giving it 4 Stars and hailing the album as "Ghetto rock and righteous hip-hop from dazzlingly talented Def" and the New York Daily News proclaimed "No one is do?ing more to change our notion of how hip-hop can sound." The first single, "Sex, Love and Mon?ey" earned Def a 2005 Grammy nomination for "Best AlternativeUrban Performance." Mos Def's latest album, True Magic (Goodtree MediaGef-fen Records), was released in December 2006.
Currently, Mos Def is working on an array of new film, book, and television projects. The artist recently completed filming fie Kind, Rewind directed by Michel Gondry in which he starred alongside Jack Black. The film was shot in New Jersey and is set to be released in 2008. Mos Def is also working on the production of a book called Black, 2.0 by Mos Def. The work, a heavily illus?trated and innovatively designed compendium of significant moments and movements, artifacts and icons of the past 35 years of black culture, is slated to be published in Fall 2008.
Frequently and rightly placed in the same context as DJ Premier, Pete Rock, and Kanye West, Jay Dee (aka J Dilla) built and sus?tained a high standing as a producer's producer while maintaining a low profile. When Pharrell Williams appeared on BET's 706 & Park in 2004, he declared that Jay Dee was his favorite pro?ducer and told an audibly stumped crowd thai

it had probably never heard of the man. At the time, Jay Dee had been active for well over a de?cade and had netted enough beats--including the Pharcyde's "Runnin'," De La Soul's "Stakes Is High," Common's "The Light," and several oth?ers with production teams the Ummah and the Soulquarians--to be considered an all-time great. Alternately known as J Dilla, or just Dilla, he nev?er produced a mainstream smash and, in many cases, his presence has to be confirmed with a liner notes scan. (And even then, that might not help; he occasionally went uncredited.) He never marked his territory like Just Blaze or Jazze Pha, and he never hogged the mike like P. Diddy. He let his music--and its followers--do the talking. Rather than provide immediate (or fleeting) thrills, he was hooked on working the subconscious as much as the neck muscles. He was so focused on his work that it took a severe toll on his health.
Born and raised on the east side of Detroit, Dilla--James Yancey--was forced by his parents to become involved with music; he was a record fanatic at a young age, absorbing funk, rap sin?gles, and jazz albums. He learned to play cello, keyboards, trumpet, and violin, but drums got to him like nothing else. He tried his hand at produc?ing tracks on a tape deck by using the pause and record buttons, then took up MCing. In 1988, he formed Slum Village with Pershing High School friends Baatin and T3.
In 1992, Amp Fiddler, a session keyboard?ist who had worked with Prince, Parliament, and Enchantment, taught Dilla how to use the MPC drum machine. To say that Dilla was a quick study would be an understatement. Fiddler introduced his protege to A Tribe Called Quest's Q-Tip, who heard some of Slum Village's material, liked it, and helped get the word out. In 1996 alone, he worked with Busta Rhymes, De La Soul, and the
Pharcyde, all the while playing a major role in the Ummah with Q-Tip and AN Shaheed Muhammad. (He did extensive work on Tribe's last two al?bums.) Before long, hardcore hip-hop fans began to know Dilla for his steady wobble, which was unfailingly musical and rich in detail--shuffling high-hats, oddly placed handclaps, and spacious drum loops with drastically reshaped samples of tracks both obscure and obvious.
Through the remainder of the '90s, Dilla qui?etly racked up more output, including Janet Jack?son's "Got 'til It's Gone" (for which he did not receive credit). During the producer's steady rise, Slum Village remained a priority; Fantastic, Vol. 2 and fiesf Kept Secret were released within weeks of each other in 2000. However, the producer would only contribute a few tracks to the group from then on as his schedule became increasingly tight. As a core member of the Soulquarians, Dilla worked on Common's Like Water for Chocolate, D'Angelo's Voodoo, Erykah Badu's Mama's Gun, and Talib Kweli's Quality.
Amazingly, from 2001 on, Dilla was also a prolific solo artist. A couple of singles and the Welcome 2 Detroit album came out in 2001, and a number of low-key instrumental compilations and incidental 12" singles followed shortly thereafter. Around 2003, his health took a sharp decline. For over two years, he had to use a dialysis machine. Despite having to perform in a wheelchair, he was able to tour in Europe during late 2005. Donuts, an album of instrumental that had been complet?ed during one of his extended hospital stays, was released on February 7, 2006, his 32nd birthday. Three days later, while staying at his Los Angeles home with his mother, he passed away, a victim of cardiac arrest. Close associate Karriem Riggins put the final touches on another Dilla album, The Shining, which was released in August of 2007. Dilla beats also later surfaced on Phat Kat's Carte Blanche, Peanut Butter Wolf's 2K8: BBall Zombie War, and Common's Finding Forever.

Notes on this Evening's Program Parti
Russian Dance: Summer
Vlusic by S. Galperin, V. Zhmykhov In his many arrangements of traditional Russian folk songs, Moiseyev reflects on different aspects of the Russian national character. This dance from the suite The Seasons depicts the humor, mischief, romance, and lyricism so often ascribed to the people of the countryside. The setting is a harvest festival, and villagers of all ages have gathered to cheer on a young couple.
Kalmuk Dance
Music by P. Rybakov Accompaniment by Mikhail Drokov Until very recently, the Kalmuks lived as nomads, wandering with their herds on the vast No-gai Steppes near the mouth of the Volga River. They are thought to have migrated from Central Asia, but few details of their history or culture are known. The dancers of the Kalmuks suggest a deep connection to the animals and birds that provided them with their livelihood. In this piece, one can recognize the flight of eagles, the run?ning of horses, and the contest of bulls in mating season.
Tatarochka
Music by E. Avksentiev
Unlike their ancestors who concentrated on be?having very unpleasantly towards their neighbors from the 12th to the 16th centuries, today's Tar?tars are noted for their vitality at work, their ath?letic prowess and, above all, their broad sense of humor, especially about themselves. These dances grew out of Moiseyev's observations of life in the villages of the Tartars in Crimea, and out of tradi?tional Tartar dance forms. It is the later of two Tar?tar dances he created for the repertoire and it is having its North American premiere on this tour.
Russian Dance: Polyanka
Music by E. Avksentiev
This Russian dance takes place in a polyanka (small clearing or meadow). During the spring and sum?mer seasons, young people gather here to amuse themselves with song and dance. Their initial shy?ness and formality towards each other gradually gives way to the high spirits of youth. The dance
grows faster and faster until it explodes in a cli?mactic round, with the accompaniment of tam?bourines and balalaikas. The music is based on a Russian folk song.
Suite of Moldavian Dances: Hora, Chyokirlie, Zhok
Music by D. Fedov
In Moldavia, Zhok means a dance, but it can also be interpreted as a musical promenade. The ebul?lience, color, and speed of this dance have made it one of the most popular folk dances in Russia. The Moiseyev version of this dance consists of three parts:
"Hora"--A lyrical female round dance. "Chyokirlie"--The Lark. A series of individual and
group dances, which ends with a general
boisterous round dance, based on a popular
Moldavian melody. "Zhok"--A mass dance characterized by
impetuosity and diversity of pattern.
Suite of the Greek Dances: Sirtaki
Traditional Music
This piece is based on local folk dances observed by the choreographer when he attended a village wedding during a tour of Greece.
Part II
Gypsies
Music by S. Galperin
In Bessarabia, somewhere near the Romanian bor?der, a band of gypsies rests in the vineyards that line the road. Suddenly the women begin to move languorously. The men, with shadows, are stirred to action and a frenzy of dancing begins.
Romanian Dance: Briul
Music by S. Galperin A Romanian joke dance.
Egyptian Dance
Traditional Music
This dance for women is based on the sinuous movements of hands, feet, and hips that are char?acteristic of Middle Eastern dance.
Aragonskaya: Khota
Music by M. Glinka
A national Spanish dance from the Aragon Re?gion.
Venezuelan Dance: Khoropo
Music by A. Gus
A national Venezuelan dance.
Dance of Argentinean Cowboys: Gaucho
Music by N. Nekrasov
This is a dance of Argentinean cowboys in which they have a skill competition. It is danced by three male soloists.
Nanayan National Play: Two Boys In A Fight
Wrestling is a favorite sport of the Nanayan peo?ple who inhabit the frigid Northern region of Rus?sia. Moiseyev conceives it as a pastime that is also full of surprises.
Yablotchko (From the Naval Suite) Traditional Music
There are many hardships in the life of the sailors, but they are always in good spirit.
The 70-year-old Moiseyev Dance Com?pany is consistently acclaimed throughout the world as the greatest of all folk dance groups. The ensemble, honored as Russia's official State Academic Ensemble of Popular Dance, has captivated international audiences for decades with its peerless technical brilliance and exuber?ant evocations of traditional dances. At the heart of the group's success is the genius of its visionary artistic director, choreographer, and founder, the late Igor Moiseyev. Today, the Company's fame is so widespread it is often identified merely by its legendary founder's surname: Moiseyev.
The Company's origin can be traced back to 1936, when Igor Moiseyev, the then current Ballet Master and former Principal Dancer and Chore?ographer of the Bolshoi Ballet, was asked by the Soviet government to organize the first Festival of National Dance. As a student, Mr. Moiseyev had traversed the country on foot during his free time, immersing himself in the study of Russian folklore and in the treasury of songs, dances, customs, traditions, and festivals belonging to the 180 na?tional cultures that comprised the Soviet Union. Fascinated by what he found, he embraced this unprecedented task of bringing traditional dances to national attention. The festival's subsequent
success convinced Moiseyev that the formation of a professional company was necessary to preserve and develop the best traditions of folk dancing.
On February 10, 1937 in Moscow, Mr. Moiseyev gathered together a core of approxi?mately 40 of the best dancers from amateur companies across the country, and a handful of professional ballet dancers from the Bolshoi School and other classical companies. Mr. Moiseyev's intent was not to reproduce precisely the more than 3000 existing national dances, but to raise the skill of performance to the highest artistic level in order to influence the creation of new national dances. His strong background in classical ballet would provide the basic training for his company, and his keen powers of observation and thorough knowledge of folklore would lead him to establish a unique choreographic style.
Six months after that first gathering, the Moiseyev Dance Company gave its first performance at Moscow's Green Theatre. The inaugural program contained dances from the Ukraine, Armenia, Belorussia, the Far North, and Azerbaijan. The public acclaim was immediate and overwhelming.
Within a few years of this initial triumph, Mr. Moiseyev had molded the first professional ensemble of popular dance into a superb com?pany of 100 dancers. They toured throughout the Soviet Union, constantly adding dances from other, more remote regions, including Georgia, the Caucausus, Mongolia, Uzbekistan, the Gobi desert, and the far reaches of Siberia. Moiseyev also created new works based on current themes, such as the desperate struggle of the Russian people during World War II.
When the Cold War first eased in 1955, the Moiseyev Dance Company began to tour the world. It has since appeared in and returned to more than 60 countries, covering all continents. Its ever-growing repertoire now includes dances of Spain, Japan, China, Bulgaria, Argentina, Mex?ico, Poland, Hungary, and, of course, American jazz and rock-and-roll. The company now num?bers more than 200, has its own orchestra and school, and possesses a repertoire in excess of 200 dances.
America's love affair with the Moiseyev Dance Company began in 1958 when the impresario Sol Hurok brought it to New York's old Metropolitan Opera House on 39th Street. The explosive 25-minute ovation it received then has
not abated in the succeeding visits of the com?pany to these shores, made in 1961, 1965, 1970, 1974, 1986, 1989, 1991, 1995, 1999, 2002, and 2005.
The Moiseyev Dance Company returned to North America for an unprecedented second visit in 2005 to appear with the Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, conducted by John Mauceri. Their three performances in Los Angeles marked the first time that the company has performed in the United States with a symphony orchestra. In 2008 the Moiseyev Dance Company will return to North America for a tour commemorating the life and work of Mr. Moiseyev as well as the 50th anniver?sary of their first US tour and the 70th anniversary of the Company.
UMS ARCHIVES
I u
is evening's performance marks the Moiseyev Dance Company's UMS debut.
Igor Alexandrovich Moiseyev --"one of the greatest choreographers in 20th-century dance" (Anna Kisselgoff, The New York Times)--was born of Ukrainian parentage in Kiev in 1906. A few months later Mr. Moiseyev's father, an attorney, moved the family to Paris where the boy passed the first seven years of his life, becoming bilingual.
He and his family returned to the Soviet Union in 1914, living first in Poltava in the Ukraine. There, the legendary villages of Dikanka and Soro-chinsty became real to the young Moiseyev, and the festivals, fairs, and dances he witnessed be?came vivid, indelible images. Mr. Moiseyev later described it as "a kind of unconscious gravitation I felt all throughout my life."
A year later the Moiseyev family settled in Moscow. There, Moiseyev enrolled in a Gym?nasium where he concentrated on painting, poetry and sports. At age 12 he began his ballet training at a well known private school headed by Vera Moslova. After seeing his first Bolshoi Ballet performance two years later, his career was determined. Moslova recognized his talent and
Igor Alexandrovic Moiseyev
brought him to the Bolshoi School where, out of 100 applicants, only he and Asaf Messerer (who was destined to glorify his own name in Russian ballet) were chosen.
At 18, Mr. Moiseyev graduated from the Bolshoi School of Choreography, joined the Bolshoi Ballet, and gradually rose to become a Principal Dancer. His most famous roles included Raoul in Theolinde, Joseph in Joseph the Beau?tiful, the Phoenix in The Red Poppy and lead?ing roles in the standard classical repertoire. But choreography had become his chief passion. He created new productions for the Bolshoi, among them Salammbo, in which he danced the leading role of Matho, Three Fat Men, and Football Play?ers. Even the most conservative members of the dance world, opponents of his departures from the strict programming of classical ballet, hailed him for his great choreographic inventiveness and his dazzling theatrical form. It was during this pe?riod also that he established his reputation as a scholar of all aspects of Russian folklore.
In 1936, Mr. Moiseyev was appointed Bal?let Master at the Bolshoi Theatre. Shortly after, he was asked to organize a festival of national dance, and he thus began the work that would ultimately be recognized as one of the greatest artistic contributions to the dance world. He was the recipient of UNESCO's Mozart Medal for "out?standing contribution to world music culture," the Government of Moscow Award for "Legend of the Century," and the award for "outstanding contribution to the development of cultural rela?tions between the US and Russia"--an honor only accorded to two others: pianist Van Cliburn and cellist Mstislav Rostropovich. On the occasion of his 100th birthday, a gala performance took place at the Kremlin Palace Theater in Moscow honor?ing his great contribution to the world of dance. Mr. Moiseyev was presented with Russia's top ci?vilian honor for service to the nation from Presi?dent Vladimir Putin. Mr. Moiseyev died in Moscow in November 2007 at the age of 101.
