Notes on this Evening's Program
The repertoire chosen for tonight's concert spans a 100year period between the 1850s and 1950s, taking us to France with a short diversion over to Austria and Hungary. The earlier part of the 19th century found the Romantic move?ment in full swing all over Europe, manifested in musical performances marked by passionate per?sonal expression and interpretation, with surges of nationalism and popular use of the melodies and rhythms found in folk music. It was also the age of the traveling virtuoso who made concert tours performing on piano, violin, or even the flute.
The flute had developed from its prehistoric roots into a simple wooden onekeyed pipe found in the Baroque era (introduced first in the 1680s at the French Court of Louis XIV). It evolved rapidly during the Classical era (17501830) in four, six, and finally an eightkeyed form that made the flute a fully chromatic instrument. The flute enjoyed great popularity in the 18th century, heard in the court orchestras and concert halls in France, Ger?many, Italy, and England. An instrument of kings, Frederick the Great of Prussia and George III of England played the flute as enthusiastic amateurs at their courts, starting a trend of European noble?men who took up the flute as an amateur sport. Music scholars of some renown have referred to this phenomenon as "Flutomania."
As the 19th century entered its early decades, the middle class, with its rising economic and so?cial status, sought to imitate the gentry, so the flute continued to be a favorite gentleman's instrument. Young gentlemen met ladies, who played piano as a necessary social grace, in home parlors where many a duet started a romantic encounter. This was also the era when opera grew in popularity, and whole operas were routinely arranged for home perfor?mance--transcribed not just for piano, but also for flute and piano or two flutes. The most common form was the fantasia or air varie, based on operatic themes of the day or traditional national melodies. Many of these pieces became so virtuosic that only a handful of professional performers could play them. France produced an unusual number of mu?sic virtuosos trained at specialized music schools like the famous Paris Conservatory of Music (est. 1795). These musicians, in turn, inspired, commissioned, or composed a number of pieces we will hear tonight. The first piece we will hear is also the most recent.
Sonata for Flute and Piano
Francis Poulenc
Born January 7, 1899 in Paris
Died January 30, 1963 in Paris
Poulenc attained success as a French composer and pianist at an early age. During the 1920s, he was one of the leading spirits of the group of young French composers including Arthur Honegger, Germaine Tailleferre, Darius Milhaud, Georges Auric, and Louis Durey known as "Les Six" (The Six). Their music was often light, clever, and satiri?cal. Poulenc specifically juxtaposed witty passages with lush melody.
The Sonata for Flute and Piano was the first in a series of three woodwind sonatas composed in the last years of his life. His clarinet and oboe sonatas date from 1962. Poulenc was a gifted melodist, and this piece is a lyrical, urbane, and classicallybalanced work which quickly became an important addition to the flute repertoire. The composer described it as "simple but subtle," con?taining hallmarks of his style: incisive rhythms, spicy harmonies, witty musical gestures, and abrupt shifts of mood. It was commissioned by the Elisabeth Sprague Coolidge Foundation, dedicated to the great patroness of chamber music Elisabeth Sprague Coolidge, and premiered at the Stras?bourg Festival in 1957 by French flutist JeanPierre Rampal with the composer at the piano.
According to the score, the Sonata for Flute and Piano was composed at the Hotel Majestic in Cannes between December 1956 and March 1957, although its genesis went back to sketches from 1952. The composer, by his own admission, injected the musical spirit of Soeur Constance, one of the doomed nuns from what was to become his masterpiece, the opera Dialogues des Carmelites (1957). You will find her in the haunting middle movement titled "Cantilena."
Philippe Gaubert
Bom July 5, 1879 in Cahors, France
Died July 8, 1941 in Paris
Frenchman Philippe Gaubert had three careers: French flutist, conductor, and composer. He start?ed flute in Paris as a young boy, studying with a neighbor Jules Taffanel (Paul Taffanel's father) who immediately recognized his potential and persuad?ed Paul to accept him as a private pupil in 1890.
When Paul Taffanel was appointed flute professor at the Paris Conservatory in 1893, Gaubert joined his class at age 13. His artistry was far beyond his years and he was awarded the First Prize less than a year later in the yearend concours in July 1894. Soon Gaubert was playing in the orchestras of the Opera and Societe des Concerts (today Orchestra de Paris), in the exclusive Paris salons as a soloist, and in popular chamber music ensembles. During this time, he also continued to study harmony and composition and began composing and conduct?ing. He became the assistant conductor of the So?ciete des Concerts in 1904. By this time, Taffanel was the principal conductor. When World War I erupted, Gaubert enlisted and while on active duty fighting the Germans, he composed several pieces while in the trenches.
In 1919 after the war, he returned to Paris where he was appointed Principal Conductor of the Societe des Concerts and flute professor at the Paris Conservatory. The following year he also became Principal Conductor at the Opera. He kept up a fran?tic pace and was a tireless worker, demanding much of himself and his colleagues. He squeezed in time to compose mostly during summer breaks. Besides compositions for flute, he wrote operas, ballets, or?chestral pieces, songs, and chamber music.
Eventually his frantic life took a toll on his health, and several days after the premiere of his ballet Le chevalier et la demoiselle at the Paris Opera, he died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage in 1941. Today in France he is known as a famous conductor, while in America he is best known as the coauthor of the TaffanelGaubert flute meth?od and some flute solos.
Madrigal was written in 1908. This piece (Moderato quasi allegretto) was composed the year Gaubert's mentor and teacher Paul Taffanel died. It is one of Gaubert's enduring and mostloved compositions for flute and piano. It is in a modi?fied SonataAllegro form and musically has a strong connection with Gabriel Faure and Cesar Franck.
Nocturne and Allegro Scherzando
Nocturne and Allegro scherzando was commis?sioned by Paul Taffanel in 1906 to be that year's concours yearend competition piece for his flute students at the Paris Conservatory. It is one of many concours pieces that Gaubert wrote for flute over the next 30 years. It enjoys a continued popularity with flutists around the world to this day.
La Ronde Des Lutins, Op. 25
("Dance of the Goblins") Antonio Bazzini
Born March 11, 1818 in Brescia, Italy Died February 10, 1897 in Milan, Italy
When the young Italian violinist Antonio Bazzini met the famous Italian virtuoso Paganini, the lat?ter became a great influence. Bazzini left Italy and studied in Leipzig, devoting his time to learning Bach and Beethoven, but he toured all over Eu?rope as a violin virtuoso. He was greatly admired by Schumann and Mendelssohn and eventually accepted a position at the Milan Conservatory, where he taught composition and influenced the great Italian opera composers Puccini and Mascagni, who were his pupils. His own music was known for its great virtuosic techniques.
La Ronde des Lutins, Op. 25 is his famous operatic fantasy written for violin and piano and has been a continued favorite with violin virtuosos. There is a long tradition of performers of various instruments transcribing and adapting successful pieces such as this. The violin and flute particu?larly make a habit of trying out each other's pieces. When the flute transcribes the violin part in this work, it becomes a showpiece for a fast display of doubletonguing and other articulation and tech?nical acrobatics.
Rigoletto Fantasy
Albert Franz Doppler
Bom October 16, 1821 in Lemberg, Poland
(nowLviv, Ukraine) Died July 27, 1883 in Baden (near Vienna)
Karl Doppler
Born September 12, 1825 in Lemberg, Poland
Died March 10, 1900 in Stuttgart, Germany
The Polish flutist Franz Doppler debuted at age 13 in Vienna in 1834. He toured extensively with his younger brother Karl, also a flutist, through Brus?sels, London, and Paris before residing in Pest (later part of Budapest). There he became first flutist at the Pest opera in 1839 and helped found the Phil?harmonic Orchestra in the 1850s. By 1858 he moved to Vienna to become first flutist and eventual con?ductor of the Vienna Opera Ballet as well as the flute professor at the Vienna Conservatory (187467). In the meantime, his brother Karl became conductor of the court chapel in Stuttgart in the 1860s and com?posed operas, ballet music, and pieces for flute.
When the Doppler brothers toured around Europe, they caused a mild sensation with their au?diences. Being lefthanded, Karl played the flute in reverse. This added an optical effect to the concerts with his brother Franz. Both of the brothers wrote many pieces for opera as well as flute. Like their op?eras, their flute works combine Polish, Italian, Rus?sian, and Hungarian influences. National or operatic derivations were often specified in the titles.
Rigoletto Fantasy is a set of virtuosic fire?works for two flutes and piano using themes from Giuseppe Verdi's 1851 opera Rigoletto. For the Doppler brothers, this would have been a popular contemporary opera upon which to base their the?matic material.
Concertino, Op. 107
Cecile Chaminade
Born August 8, 1857 in Paris
Died April 18, 1944 in Monte Carlo, Monaco
Cecile Chaminade was fated to be best remem?bered by a little piece that represents neither her highest aspirations nor her greatest accomplish
merits. The pretty Scarf Dance helped make her a popular pianist, but she played her much more serious Concert Piece when she made her Ameri?can debut in 1908 with the Philadelphia Orchestra. Subjects, today considered "feminist," interested her greatly, and among her major works is a big "lyric symphony" for chorus and orchestra entitled Les Amazones.
In 1902 Chaminade received one of the mi?nor official honors that French composers enjoyed. She was asked to write a test piece for the annual concours competition at the Paris Conservatory, and she responded with this Concertino for flute and piano or orchestra. It consists of a single flu?ently written movement, and its extremely difficult solo part is designed to challenge not only finalyear Conservatory students but the most experi?enced of flutists as well.
All program notes by Dr. Penelope Peterson Fischer, except the Chaminade note written by Leonard Burkat.

UMS Education and Community Engagment
Striving to provide worldclass educational events and cultural exchange to the broadest community, in 0708 the UMS Education and Audience Development Program continued its progressive growth and a commitment to audiences through a wide variety of partnerships and collaborations with individuals and community organizations. We recognize that every single person has a unique relationship to the arts, and our role is to enhance that connection through activities designed for different people. UMS Education has been awarded the "Best Practice" award by both ArtServe Michigan and the Dana Foundation. In the past season, UMS was able to offer 164 events to over 16,000 people as part of our Education and Audience Development program.
The largest youth performance initiative in Michi?gan, UMS's Youth Education Program is uniquely developed in partnership with the Ann Arbor Public Schools and the Washtenaw Intermediate School District. We provide worldclass artistic experiences and professional development to stu?dents, 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. Over 45 events serving over 12,000 people were planned in the 0708 season.
K12 Youth Performance Series
UMS offered nine acclaimed performances for students, featuring seven different artists. This program allowed over 8,000 students to experi?ence the live performing arts. Over 120 schools from 25 districts participated in UMS's Youth Per?formance Series.
UMS Teacher Workshop Series
Along with parents, we feel that teachers are in?strumental in the development of the arts in our children. UMS is part of the Kennedy Center Part?ners in Education Program, bringing worldclass Kennedy Center workshop leaders to Ann Arbor, as well as offering workshops designed by local arts experts in our community. Nearly 300 teach?ers attended 10 workshops in the 0708 season. From book clubs to Cambodian dance workshops to daylong immersions on both China and the city of Detroit, UMS provided a year's worth of professional development for teachers to utilize immediately in their classroom.
UMS Curriculum Packets
UMS creates teacher curriculum packets, CDs, and DVDs for all schools participating in our diverse programs. These essential tools for connecting the classroom and performance experience have garnered national attention and are used through the performing arts industry.

UMS K12 School Enrichment
UMS has expanded efforts in schools by provid?ing additional support to the classroom teacher. Trained arts professionals visit classrooms to provide context, workshops, and a firsthand per?spective on the arts. Over the course of last year, UMS facilitated these classroom visits, affecting over 1,000 students.
Breakin' Curfew 2008
Celebrating the artistic voice of the local teen community is important to UMS. Through a part?nership with the Neutral Zone, Ann Arbor's teen center, Breakin' Curfew allows over 20 teen cura?tors and 150 local teens to create, perform, pro?duce, and market a professional performance at the Power Center for Performing Arts. Breakin' Curfew is unique to the city of Ann Arbor and an exciting showcase for emerging teen talent.
UMS Family Series
The Family Series is designed to allow parents and their children to have a meaningful bonding and artistic experience. UMS is committed to worldclass family programming with nearly 900 people attending our familyoriented events. UMS teamed up with other area cultural organizations to pres?ent the fourth annual Ann Arbor Family Days. This twoday event offered free and lowcost familyfriendly cultural events to the Ann Arbor commu?nity in multiple venues throughout the city.
The UMS Adult Education and Community Engagement Programs serve many different audi?ences through a variety of educational programs. Providing relevance and context to our audiences is of crucial importance to UMS, as we strive for full audience engagement in the performance ex?perience. To this end, UMS strongly emphasizes the importance of partnering with community or?ganizations in the development of our programs. Throughout the past season, UMS partnered with over 100 individuals, community organizations, and university units to plan over 100 events. Near?ly all events were free and open to the public.

UMS Teacher of the Year Dan Tolly
Ann Arbor Open School, Ann Arbor Public Schools
To see Dan Tolly teach music is to see an educator use the sum of his life experiences and in?terests to engage students in learning. For years, Dan's participation in UMS programs has been deep and consistent. He has found a way to meld such disparate topics as Cambodian dance, tableau, and Mexican mural arts into a cohesive strategy for working with students, and to great effect--students at Ann Arbor Open School love his class and are full participators in his brand of arts learning. UMS extends congratulations to Dan on his achievements.
UMS School of the Year

Emerson School
Patricia Adams, Head of School
At most UMS Youth Education events, one is likely to see a group of Emerson School educators: classroom teachers, librarians, music and art teachers, and technology special?ists. Each season the faculty of Emerson School explores the arts and cultures of the world through UMS--regular?ly attending after school workshops, bringing students to youth performances, and hosting artists for inclass visits. The result of their extensive engagement is an inspiring model of integrated arts learning and team teaching that moves towards ensuring their students' success.
The Teacher and School of the Year Awards are designed by potter and visual artist Sara Frank, UMS Advisory Committee.
Artist Residencies
Artists presented by UMS are frequently working both on and offstage to be actively engaged in the community. UMS facilitated and managed many major residencies this season, including the Khmer Arts Ensemble, eighth blackbird, Noism08, Leila Haddad, and the San Francisco Symphony. Through planned artist interviews, panel discus?sion, symposia, social receptions, workshops, and informal dialogues, UMS served over 5,000 people in southeast Michigan.
Partnership and Collaboration
UMS celebrates diversity in all of its forms, a value represented by both the performances UMS pres?ents and the communities with which it engages. UMS has earned national acclaim for its work with diverse cultural groups thanks to its proactive stance on partnering with and responding to in?dividual community needs. Though based in Ann Arbor, UMS Community Engagement programs reach out to the entire southeastern Michigan region.
For example, the NETWORK is an initiative launched by UMS three seasons ago to create an opportunity for African Americans and the broad?er community to celebrate the worldclass artistry of today's leading African and AfricanAmerican performers and creative artists. This year, the NETWORK connected nearly 100 people.
