FROM THE U-M PRESIDENT
Welcome to this University Musical Society (UMS) performance. We at the University of Michigan are proud of UMS and of the world-class artists and ensembles that it brings each season to the University and southeast Michigan. As UMS marks its 130th continuous season, making it the oldest university-related presenter in the United States, we are also cele?brating the outstanding educational programs it offers to people of all ages and the new works in dance, theater, and music it commissions.
When I consider which UMS events best exemplify the melding of artistic performance and education, I point to the three-week residencies of the Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) that we have enjoyed in 2001, 2003, and 2006, two of which were US exclusive presentations attracting audiences from 39 states and five countries.
I am pleased UMS has chosen to celebrate the partnership between the RSC, UMS, and U-M at this year's 14th Ford Honors Program. At the heart of this unique partnership has been the extraordinary artist-scholar relation?ship between the RSC's Olivier Award-winning Artistic Director Michael Boyd and U-M's beloved Professor Ralph Williams, both of whom will be honored at the program. This year's Ford Honors Program, usually held in May, will take place Saturday, January 24, 2009, so that students who have participated in the RSC residencies or who have had Professor Williams in class will be able to attend. Professor Williams will retire from U-M at the end of this academic year, and I hope you will join me at this very special event.
This UMS winter season also brings us multi-day performances combined with numerous educational opportunities when the New York Philharmonic visits on March 7 and 8, and when Yo-Yo Ma brings his Silk Road Project to campus March 13 and 14.
Audience members also have a chance to delve into the rich diversity of cultural expressions from the Arab world, as UMS completes its Performing Arts of the Arab World series this term. I encourage you to attend Gilgamesh in January, Aswat: Celebrating the Golden Age of Arab Music in March, and Mohammed Bennis and the Hmadcha Ensemble in April along with the educational programs surrounding them.
There are many other UMS events as well as performances, exhibitions, and cultural activities offered by our faculty and students in U-M's many other units. To learn more about arts and culture at Michigan, including the March 21 performance commemorating the 25th anniversary of U-M's acclaimed musical theater program and the March 28 grand re-opening of the restored and expanded U-M Museum of Art, please visit the University's website at www.umich.edu.

President, University of Michigan
FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT
Welcome to this UMS performance. Thank you for supporting UMS through your attendance, especially during these challenging times. The entire UMS family of Board, Senate, and Advisory Committee members; staff colleagues; Choral Union members; ushers; and hundreds of other volunteers are grateful that you're here and hope that you'll enjoy the experience and attend more UMS events during this second half of our 130th season. You'll find all of our remaining performances listed on page 2 of your program insert.
At UMS, we try to make sure that our events offer a chance to learn something new, to look at the world through a different lens, or even to change lives. You'll find much to choose from as solo artists and ensembles from all over the world visit our community and engage with our audiences in many ways. Artists can lift the spirit, challenge perceptions, provide comfort, and deepen understanding. So whether it's the Guarneri Quartet's Farewell Tour concert; the New York Philharmonic's residency; Simon Shaheen's Aswat production; Yo-Yo Ma's two Silk Road events; Chick Corea and John McLaughlin s reunion; or our 2009 Ford Honors Program celebrating the Royal Shakespeare Company, its Artistic Director Michael Boyd, and U-M Professor Ralph Williams, we hope you'll find meaning and value as we connect you with our artists for uncommon and engaging experiences.
I have had the pleasure over the past two years of working in partnership with UMS Board Chair Carl Herstein, who has provided outstanding lay leader?ship to UMS. His term comes to an end in June. Be sure to read his letter on P5 of this program book, and you'll get a sense of how we've benefited from his knowledge of our history, his understanding of the power of the arts, and his deep appreciation of each member of the UMS family who attends our per?formances, donates to our organization, or volunteers their services. Thanks for your dedicated service, Carl.
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 email@example.com or call me at 734.647.1174.
And thanks again for coming to this event.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
FROM UMS CHAIRMAN, CARL HERSTEIN
In these times of economic uncertainty and unease about the future, the power of the arts reminds us of enduring values. In its 130 years, UMS and its numerous generations of patrons and audiences have seen many times of anxiety and turmoil, each of which was unprecedented in its day. Throughout that time, great artists performing important works helped the UMS community come to grips with the world. In some cases this occurred because the perform?ance of a classic work brought a sense of reassurance, harmony, and peace. In others, a modern work challenged the audience to come to terms with unsettling new realities. The best of these performances were transformative events, helping to shape the emotional and intellectual response of each audience member to contemporary events.
We are immensely fortunate that an appreciation of this powerful legacy led these audiences to steward UMS safely through the vicissitudes of world wars, global depression, demographic and cultural changes, and intellectual and sci?entific revolutions. The arts which UMS has presented and fostered have remained an indispensable part of our common ability to make sense of a world that never ceases to amaze, surprise, and sometimes frighten us. Succeeding generations have bequeathed to us a legacy of involvement and support so that we too are able to enjoy the sustenance and inspiration that is the gift of great art.
It is, therefore, critically important that we do our part to cherish and preserve the legacy that our community is so fortunate to enjoy. By bringing friends to performances, becoming involved with the UMS Advisory Committee, partici?pating in educational events, supporting youth performances, and providing the ever-critical financial support that makes the work of UMS possible, you are continuing the work of bringing the power of the arts to us all at a time when it is very much needed. We want to thank all of you who have participated in this work with your support of the UMS Difference Campaign, which has been a success due to the commitment not merely of a few, but of 4,279 of you who believe that what UMS does makes a real difference in the life of our community. If you are one of those 4,279, you have our deepest thanks and our encourage?ment to continue to be a vital part of the UMS family; if you have not yet con?tributed, please consider deepening your engagement with us. We think you will find, as so many others have before you, that it will make your UMS experience more meaningful, more personal, and will have the added benefit of making it more accessible to others who have not yet enjoyed the experiences that have been so important to you and to us.
Thank you for coming to this performance. Whether you have come a hun?dred times before or for the first time today, please know that you are always welcome in the UMS family; a group which gathers strength from its diversity, honors its extraordinary past, and works for a future of excellence no matter what transient challenges we may face.

Latecomers will be asked to wait in the lobby until seated by ushers. Most lobbies have been outfitted with monitors andor speakers so that latecomers will not miss the performance.
The late-seating break is determined by the artist and will generally occur during a suitable repertory break in the program (e.g., after the first entire piece, not after individual movements of classical works). There may be occasions where latecomers are not seated until intermis?sion, as determined by the artist. UMS makes every effort to alert patrons in advance when we know that there will be no late seating.
UMS tries to work with the artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family perform?ances.

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 the past 130 years, strong leadership coupled with a devoted community has placed UMS in a league of internationally recognized performing arts presenters. Today, the UMS seasonal program is a reflection of a thoughtful respect for this rich and varied history, balanced by a commit?ment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this new millennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry 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 many Choral Union members also belonged to the University, the University Musical Society was established in December, 1880. UMS included the Choral Union and University Orchestra, and throughout the year presented a series of concerts featuring local and visiting artists and ensembles.
Since that first season in 1880, UMS has expanded greatly and now presents the very best from the full spectrum of the performing arts--internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and world music performers, and opera and theater. Through educational endeavors, commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and other collaborative projects, UMS has maintained its reputation for quality, artistic distinction, and innovation. UMS now hosts over 50 performances and more than 125 educational events each sea?son. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in eight different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded its charge over its 130-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (2004), John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2007), and Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg (2006).
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.

Interior renovations included the creation of additional restrooms, the improvement of barrier-free circulation by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, new seats to
increase patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning. Hill Auditorium seats 3,575.
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 in the country. Since 1979, the theater has been operated by the not-for-profit Michigan Theater Foundation. With broad community support, the Foundation has raised over $8 million to restore and improve the Michigan Theater. The beautiful interior of the theater was restored in 1986.
In the fall of 1999, the Michigan Theater opened a new 200-seat screening room addi?tion, which also included expanded restroom facilities for the historic theater. The gracious facade and entry vestibule was restored in 2000.
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 University priorities "a new theater" was
mentioned. The Powers were immediately inter?ested, realizing that state and federal govern?ments were unlikely to provide financial support for the construction of a new theater.
Opening in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Truman Capote), the Power Center achieved the seemingly contradictory combination of providing a soaring interior space with a unique level of intimacy. Architectural features include two large spiral staircases leading from the orchestra level to the balcony and the well-known mirrored glass panels on the exterior. The lobby of the Power Center presently "eatures two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes Arabesque) by Pablo Picasso.
The Power Center seats approximately 1,400 people.

iackham Auditorium Sixty 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 iome of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of numan 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.

Now that you're in your seat...
Unlike the string quartet, the piano trio is not a conversation among equals but rather a contest between two fundamentally different sides: the piano, with its rich polyphonic possibilities, is opposed by two string instruments that are designed primarily to play single melodic lines. Nor do the sound colors achieve that complete blend which four members of the string family can produce. Yet this is precisely the main attraction of the piano trio as a genre: the piano, which tends to dominate proceedings, is constantly challenged by the two string instruments; their harmony is not a given but is arrived at through a laborious process, like an agreement among three totally dissimilar characters who always preserve their individuality. The three works on tonight's program come from three different centuries and three different countries, and illustrate the extraordinary versatility of this beloved chamber formation.
Between Tides... (1993) Toru Takemitsu
Born October 8, 1930 in Tokyo, Japan Died February 20, 1996 in Tokyo
Snapshot of History... In 1993:
Bill Clinton becomes the US President
War in Bosnia
The first bombing of the World Trade Center
Steven Spielberg releases both Jurassic Park and Schindler's List
Death of Takemitsu's friend, novelist Kobo Abe, author of A Woman in the Dunes, whose film version had a score by Takemitsu
"I have a preference for peaceful music"--Toru Takemitsu once wrote, and his entire voluminous output bears witness to that statement. At the time this work was written as a commission for the Berlin Festival, Takemitsu had long enjoyed great prestige as the first Japanese composer fully accepted in the West. His unique, peaceful voice brought the Oriental influences of Debussy and Messiaen back to their home of origin; his love of nature--water, trees, and flowers--inspired work after work of gentle, sensuous sounds and a profoundly meditative character.
Between Tides..., a 15-minute work written for Pamela Frank, Yo-Yo Ma, and Peter Serkin, is a succession of mighty crescendo and decrescendo curves, where the volume in turn increases and decreases, imitating the ebb and flow of the sea. There are several powerful dramatic eruptions (a relatively rare occurrence with this composer),
but the music moves mostly in long, expressive melodic lines and dreamy sonorities left hanging in the air. In his harmonies, Takemitsu is noticeably more conventionally tonal than he had been earlier in his career. Critic Malcolm MacDonald has called Between Tides... "perhaps one of [Takemitsu's] greatest works. It certainly has a lot of competition in the composer's extensive catalog, but it is definitely a major addition to the contemporary piano-trio repertoire."
Trio in C Major, Op. 71, No. 1 (Hob. XV:21)
Franz Joseph Haydn
Born March 31, 1732 in Rohrau, Lower Austria Died May 31, 1809 in Vienna
Snapshot of History... In 1795:
The French Revolution enters a period of consolida?tion with the establishment of the Directory
Poland is partitioned for the third time between Russia, Prussia, and Austria
Goethe publishes Wilhelm Meister's Apprenticeship
Kamehameha I founds the Kingdom of Hawaii
William Blake creates his celebrated print Nebuchadnezzar
Beethoven publishes his three piano trios. Op. 1
In the first printed edition, the present work and its companions were not called "trios" but rather pianoforte sonatas with violin and cello accompaniment. Although the violinist does
frequently share the limelight with the keyboard player, the cello part basically doubles the left hand of the piano, providing a harmonic foundation but doing little else. From the vantage point of 19th-century chamber music, in which all the players are equal, this may seem like a deficiency. Yet, instead of trying to apply anachronistic ideas to Haydn, we should take him on his own terms and accept this imbalance as an important characteristic of his instrumentation. In fact, this state of affairs tums out to be the source of a unique sound world in the Haydn trios--glorified piano sonatas with a kind of string "halo," as it were.
Haydn wrote such trios throughout his long career, producing about 40 of them over the years. As with the symphonies and string quartets, his art reached its apex in the 1790s, at the time of his two extended sojoums in London. Tonight's selection is one of the London trios, published as part of a set of three in 1795, just before Haydn left England for good. It is a particularly sunny work in three movements which begins in an unusual way, with a brief adagio introduction, marked, significantly, "Adagio pastorale." Yet the mood doesn't remain "pastoral" (that is, quiet and peaceful) for very long; a lively sonata form soon gets underway with its attendant thematic contrasts, exciting motivic transformations, and dramatic surprises. Even the second movement is not too slow but maintains a steady walking speed throughout. The last movement, finally, is a playful romp that, in a typically Haydnesque way, reserves some major surprises for the audience. An extended trill in the piano prepares a powerful dramatic outburst with an exceptional series of diminished chords (the strongest dissonance possible in classical music), and it is a while before the music may resume its initial light-hearted mood which now prevails to the end.
Piano Trio No. 3 in f minor. Op. 65 (B. 130)
Bom September8, 1841 in Nelahozeves, Bohemia Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
Snapshot of History... In 1883:
Richard Wagner dies
The Brooklyn Bridge opens
The Orient Express runs from Paris to Constantinople
Nietzsche publishes Thus Spake Zarathustra
The Metropolitan Opera opens
Gaudi begins work on the Sagrada Familia in Barcelona
Dvorak wrote a total of six piano trios, but the first two are lost. The present work, in the " dark" key of f minor, is one of the most dramatic works written by this usually cheerful and optimistic master. The years 1883-85 marked a crisis in Dvorak's life. His mother had recently died, and he was facing major dilemmas in his professional career. The invitation from Vienna to write an opera in German pitted his desire for advancement against his Czech national feelings. (He finally declined the offer.) His feelings at the time found expression in the f-minor trio and, soon afterwards, in Symphony No. 7.
The trio opens with a soft melody played by the violin and the cello in unison; the melody ends with the musical equivalent of a question mark. The hesitant question is answered by an energetic, march-like theme that gathers more and more momentum but eventually yields to a lyrical second idea first introduced by the cello. The initial "question" and the two opposing "answers" dominate the movement. At one point, the "question" is repeated with great insistence in a stormy fortissimo, but even after the recapitulation of both "answers," the doubts are not dispelled: the question is repeated in the movement's coda in its original tentative form, only to be abruptly cut off by a few energetic chords.
The second movement is a scherzo in the rhythms of a Czech folk dance with a middle section that is romantic, brooding, and agitated all at the same time. The mood lightens up a bit, yet the tonality remains predominantly minor, which gives the movement a subtle touch of wistfulness despite the playful dance rhythms. Even the middle section, which modulates to the major, borrows
many of its harmonies from the "sad" minor mode.
The slow movement, which is in third place, is-most of the time--an emotional duet between the two string instruments with an exquisitely sensitive piano accompaniment, "restoring calm but not peace" according to an earlier commentator. There are some agitated moments with abrupt, dreamy modulations; yet the ending of the movement (the only one in the trio to be unequivocally in the major mode) is quiet and delicate.
Rhythmically, the last movement was inspired by the well-known Czech dance, the furiant. Yet it is hardly one of Dvorak's happy "Slavonic Dances." It is tense and exciting movement in f minor (with no major-mode relief at the end) that keeps the listener constantly on the edge of his or her seat.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
Since its "official" debut during the Salzburg MozartWeek in January 1994, the Altenberg Trio Vienna--one of the few full-time piano trios in the world of chamber music--has, in over 1,000 performances, earned a reputation as one of the most daring and consistent ensembles of its kind.
The Altenberg Trio enjoys a splendid reputation among international chamber music ensembles and has been enthusiastically received in the US, Canada, and throughout Europe. Repertoire encompasses no fewer than 200 piano trios, including works which were composed for and premiered by the ensemble.
At the time it was formed, the ensemble became Trio-in-residence of Vienna's Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde, the renowned Musikverein, where it gives an annual series of concerts in the Brahms Saal. They are also Trio-in-residence of the Vienna Conservatory, where the ensemble gives master classes and seminars.
The instrumentalists have impressive individual reputations in chamber music, taking great pride in remaining faithful to the style and tradition of the "Viennese sound" so often admired. They chose their name in honor of the revered Viennese poet Peter Altenberg, who was a contemporary and compatriot of several renowned Viennese composers and artists at the turn of the century: Arnold Schoenberg, Alban Berg, Gustav Mahler, Egon Schiele, Oskar Kokoschka, and Gustav Klimt.
The Altenberg Trio currently has 10 recordings on the Challenge label in repertoire ranging from German and French classics to American music. Their recording of trios of Ives, Copland, and Bernstein won the Edison Award in Amsterdam in 2000.
The Altenberg Trio's last live performance cycles were particularly highly acclaimed, including 10 concerts of the series "Strolling through the Rediscovered Europe," which explored the music of the European Union's 10 new member states.
Amiram Ganz plays a violin by Goffredo Cappa (Saluzzo, 1686), Alexander Gebert, a cello by Nicolas Vuillaume (1800-1871).

Any performance of North Indian classical music depends considerably on the mood and inspiration of the artists and their rapport with the audience. Therefore, the selection of ragas and talas will be chosen according to the mood of the evening and announced just prior to the performance by the artist. Moods from solemn and sad, to romantic and restless are said to be embodied like personalities in the thousands of ragas in classical literature.
Indian classical music is a highly developed musical language which expresses itself entirely through melodic tone rows called raga. Whereas in Western music a major key may be said to symbolize happiness and a minor key sadness, different ragas express or symbolize a whole variety of emotions as well as the various times of day and seasons of the year. In Indian music there is no harmony, so all musical meaning must rest with the interrelation of the notes in each particular raga. The octave is divided into the same number of semitones as the Western chromatic scale, but the intervals are not tempered. Furthermore, most musicians deviate from these intervals in certain ragas by sharpening or flattening specified notes micro-tonally. In North Indian music, such as will be heard in tonight's program, microtonal inflections are used as a means of emotional expression on certain predetermined notes.
The most important note in any raga is the tonic, around which the development of the raga evolves. It must be pointed out that in Indian music, once the instrument has been tuned, the tonic never changes, as opposed to Western music where the tonic may change frequently during a work by way of modulation and harmonic development. Indian music is entirely melodic, firmly rooted in its tonic, and any apparent harmony is a matter of coincidence rather than intention.
The santoor was known in India as the "Shata Tantri Veena" or the 100-stringed lute. Unlike other string instruments which are usually plucked, the santoor is played by striking the strings with two curved hammers made of walnut. The santoor was first presented on the classical stage by Shivkumar Sharma in Bombay in 1955, when the maestro was only 17 years old. Used in the early decades of the 20th century to accompany a style of singing known as Sufiana Mausiqi, the santoor is thought
to have been spread around the world by itinerant Gypsies.
The tabla, the premiere North Indian classical percussion instrument, consists of a pair of single-headed tuned kettledrums. The left-hand drum, banya, is made of an alloy of copper and silver with a goatskin membrane and provides a bass note of indefinite pitch. The right-hand drum, tabla, has a hardwood body and the membrane is stretched by a number of thongs and eight wooden blocks which are used for tuning the drum to the keynote Sa. In the center of the membrane there is a small black circular area composed of a dried paste made from flour, iron, manganese filings, and other ingredients. This increases the resonance of the drum considerably. Each drum stroke has its own particular name: Aa, Ta, Dha, Dhin, Trik, and so forth, and the rhythmic patterns are transmitted orally through these onomatopoeic names.
A true master will tell you he is only a good student. A student of Indian classical music, where the term master is codified ("Ustad" for musicians of Muslim descent, "Pandit" for Hindu), will tell you quite confidently that Pandit Shivkumar Sharma and Ustad Zakir Hussain are true masters.
Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, one of India's most popular and revered classical musicians, is India's greatest living santoor player. He has single-handedly brought about a revolution in the development and history of his instrument, both re-designing and re-defining it. If the santoor today needs no introduction, it is due to his work and genius, since he has brought this little-known Kashmiri folk instrument to the classical concert halls of India and the world.
Born in 1938 in Jammu, Kashmir, he studied vocals, tabla, and santoor with his father, the late Pandit Uma Dutt Sharma, a prominent exponent of Indian classical music. In order to achieve the subtleties of Indian classical music, Shivji, early in his career, made important modifications to his instrument: he refined the santoor to 86 strings, increased the range to cover a full three octaves, and created a new technique to masterfully sustain notes and maintain sound continuity. He has made popular and innovative recordings, including Call of the Valley, Feelings, and Mountains. He made the sound of the santoor indispensable to Indian film music, composing music for such films as
Silsila, Lamhe, Chandni, and Dan. He is also a dedicated teacher, imparting his knowledge in the Guru Shishya tradition to the next generation of musicians and training students from all over the world. His son and disciple Rahul Sharma has already made a name for himself as a formidable talent and performer.
Since making his first public performance in 1955, Shivji has traveled throughout the world and has garnered prestigious awards and titles, including Padma Vibhushan (2001), the Ustad Hafiz AN Khan Award (1998), Padma Shri (1991), an Honorary Doctorate from the University of Jammu (1991), and the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award (1986).
Ustad Zakir Hussain is today appreciated both in the field of percussion and in the music world at large as an international phenomenon. A classical tabla virtuoso of the highest order, his consistently brilliant and exciting performances have not only established him as a national treasure in his own country, India, but earned him worldwide fame. His playing is marked by uncanny intuition and masterful improvisational dexterity, founded in formidable knowledge and study. The favorite accompanist for many of India's greatest classical musicians and dancers, he has not let his genius rest there.
Widely considered a chief architect of the contemporary world music movement, Zakir's contribution to world music has been unique, with many historic collaborations including Shakti (which he founded with John McLaughlin and L. Shankar in the early 1970s), the Diga Rhythm Band, Making Music, Planet Drum (with drummer Mickey Hart), Tabla Beat Science, Sangam (with saxophonist Charles Lloyd and drummer Eric Harland), and recordings and performances with artists as diverse as George Harrison, Joe Henderson, Van Morrison, Airto Moreira, Giovanni Hidalgo, Pharoah Sanders, Billy Cobham, Rennie Harris, and the Kodo drummers of Japan.
A child prodigy, Zakir was touring by the age of 12, the gifted son of his great father, tabla legend Ustad Allarakha. Zakir came to the US in 1970, embarking on an international career which includes no fewer than 150 concert dates a year. Zakir received the distinct honor of co-composing the opening music for the 1996 Summer Olympics in Atlanta. In 2002, his commissioned work for choreographer Mark Morris's Kolam premiered as part of Yo-Yo Ma's Silk Road Project. In 2006,
Tonight's performance marks Ustad Zakir Hussain's second appearance under UMS auspices. He made his UMS debut in concert with Ali Akbar Khan in March 2000.
Tonight's performance marks Pandit Shivkumar Sharma's UMS debut.
Triple Concerto for Banjo, Bass, and Tabla, a piece co-composed by Zakir, Edgar Meyer, and Bela Fleck, was performed by the trio with the Nashville Symphony at the gala opening of the Schermerhorn Symphony Hall in Nashville.
In 1992, Planet Drum, an album co-created and produced by Zakir and Mickey Hart, was awarded the first Grammy Award for "Best World Music Album." In the same year, Zakir founded Moment! Records, which features original collaborations in the field of contemporary world music, as well as live concert performances by great masters of the classical music of India.
Zakir is the recipient of the 1999 National Heritage Fellowship, the US's most prestigious honor for a master in the traditional arts, presented by First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton at the US Senate in 1999.

La Revoltosa (excerpt)
Ruperto Chapi y Lorente
Born March 27, 1851 in Villena, near Alicante, Spain
Died March 25, 1909 in Madrid
Ruperto Chapi is most well known for his zarzuelas. The zarzuela originated in 1657 and was named for the hunting lodge of King Philip IV of Spain. The zarzuela is a light opera that runs the gamut from comic theater to high classical opera. The genre became so popular in Spain that even foreign composers like Boccherini from Italy were commissioned to write them.
La Revoltosa was premiered in Madrid at the Teatro Apolo in November 1897. Not only has it been the inspiration for numerous films, but it has formed the template of a whole genre of imitations. The "Preludio" is a lively orchestral overture that is based on the main themes of the zarzuela.
Born c. 1640 in Calanda, Spain
Trained early in life as a priest, Gaspar Sanz received his principal musical training in Italy. During the second half of the 17th century, the first great renaissance period for the guitar, Gaspar Sanz became the outstanding virtuoso of the late-Spanish school of guitarists. This suite is in nine movements, each based on dance forms. The final movement, "Canarios," is among the most famous in the guitar literature, and was adapted by the renowned 20th-century composer Joaquin Rodrigo as the theme for the final movement of his famous guitar concerto Fantasia para un gentilhombre.
Unlike today's modern guitar, the instrument that Sanz wrote for was smaller and had five sets of double strings.
Born November 22, 1901 in Sagunto, Valencia, Spain
Died July 6, 1999 in Madrid
Joaquin Rodrigo was born on November 22, 1901 in the Spanish province of Valencia. Blinded at the age of three, he had from an early age
devoted himself completely to music. In 1926, after early artistic successes in his homeland, he traveled to Paris where he studied composition with Paul Dukas for five years. There he made the acquaintance of Manuel de Falla, whose friendship greatly influenced Rodrigo's later career. Best known for his Concerto de Aranjuez for guitar and orchestra, Rodrigo has composed numerous compositions for the guitar that have become staples in the instrument's repertoire.
The Tonadilla was written in 1959 for Ida Presti and Alexandre Lagoya. In this highly virtuosic piece, Rodrigo alludes to the short comic operas which were played as intermezzos between the acts of theater performances in 18th-century Spain.
Program note by Claudia Tornsaufer.
Born March 8, 1944 in Malaga, Spain
"Farrucas" is a male dance in the category of lighter flamenco, as opposed to the serious cante jondo. The dance uses a slower rhythm that asserts masculinity and dignity, which explodes with inner power and pride, expelling inner freedom with its melodies. This "farrucas" is my tribute to the great guitarists Sabicas and Carmen Amaya who could take a "farruca" and transform it into a beautiful female dance while keeping the power and strength of the dance form.
Quintet No. 4 in D Major for Guitar and
Strings, G. 448 (excerpts) Luigi Boccherini
Born February 19, 1743 in Lucca, Italy Died May 28, 1805 in Madrid, Spain
Of all the Italian composers who devoted themselves to instrumental music, Boccherini was one of the greatest.
It was in Madrid in the 1770s that Boccherini began composing his famous string quintets, among the first of their genre. Shortly thereafter, he started writing piano quintets--a medium
which he introduced and pioneered; these were the first works to integrate the texture of the string quartet with an idiomatic piano part. From these innovative piano quintets, Boccherini derived most of his guitar quintets.
After a slow introduction marked Grave assai, the lengthy last movement takes the form of a fandango, a Castillian and Andalusian courtship dance in triple-meter and moderately fast in tempo, exhibiting the voluptuousness of its gypsy origins. In testament to Boccherini's originality, the last movement includes optional parts for castanets and sistrum, an Arabic tambourine-like instrument. The Quintet presents a charming picture of 18th-century Madrid, masterfully melding grace and impishness with a festive popular mood.
Federico Moreno Torroba
Born March 3, 1891 in Madrid, Spain
Died September 12, 1982 in Madrid
Federico Moreno Torroba began to compose for the guitar after Segovia put out a call to all composers for guitar compositions. His guitar compositions are now his most popular works.
Written while director of the Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando, Estampas was one of his later works. Its six movements comprise an album of little portraits or scenes of Spanish life. "Bailando un fandango charro" refers to the festive country dance, the fandango. "Remanso" illustrates a peaceful waterside place. "La siega" is a harvest song that quotes traditional folk melodies, as does "Fiesta en el pueblo" (festival in the village). "Amanecer" is an evocative daybreak portrait. "La boda" is a musical wedding celebration ending this fascinating excursion through situations in everyday Spanish life.
Prelude No. 1 Prelude No. 3
Born March 5, 1887 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
Died November 17, 1959 in Rio de Janeiro
Heitor Villa-Lobos has almost certainly had more of an impact than any other composer has on 20th-century guitar music. As a cellist and guitarist who played popular music, Villa-Lobos spent his lifetime
collecting popular tunes of Brazil. The characteristic rhythms and melodic shapes of Brazilian music permeate his compositions. The five-set Preludes were composed at the height of his creative life in 1940. They each depict the nostalgic folk feeling that Brazilians call saudosismo.
Suite Espanola, Op. 47 (excerpt) Isaac Albeniz
Born May 29,1860 in Camprodon. Spain Died May 18, 1909 in Cambo-les-Bains, France
As a composer primarily of piano music, Albeniz is known for his nationalistic style and the creation of an indigenous school of piano in Spain. His early works are varied, showing not only the virtuosic influence of Liszt, but the French impressionistic influence of Debussy, Faure, and d'lndy. Although his two books of the Suite Iberia were his greatest successes, his early nationalistic compositions that comprised his Suite Espanola, Op. 47 are wonderful examples of the native Spanish style that made him so famous. This piece is originally written for solo piano, but is transcribed for guitar by Pepe Romero.
Each movement of the Suite Espanola represents a city or province of Spain. "Granada," the first movement, is in the form of a serenade. Its lazy melody, in the lower register, recalls the sound of the bandola, a small lute-like instrument, and carries with it the humidity and perfumes of the city of Grenada.
Born November 21, 1852 in Villarreal,
Castellon, Spain Died December 75, 1909 in Barcelona
Fiesta en Cadiz (Homenage a Sabicas)
This composition was inspired by the friendship and mutual admiration shared by the Romero family and the great flamenco guitarist, Agustin Castell6n "Sabicas." It is based on the characteristic rhythm of alegrias from Cadiz, where it is performed at fiestas by a singer, dancer, and guitarist. It requires the very best from the guitarist as he accompanies
the spontaneous quick-changing movements of the dancer using a great variety of melodies in which he can display his virtuosity.
La Boda de Luis Alonso
Bom October 10, 1854 in Seville, Spain
Died February 19, 1923 in Madrid
Geronimo Gim?nez's musical talent was recognized and developed at an early age. His first lessons were with his father, and he began playing in the first violin section of the Teatro Principal by age 12. Today, Gimenez's fame as a composer rests primarily on his masterpiece, La Tempranica, the one-act musical farce El Baile de Luis Alonso, and what has been called the most famous zarzuela of all time, La Boda de Luis Alonso.
The "Royal Family of Guitar" and a veritable institution in the world of classical music, The Romeros celebrate their 50th anniversary this season. Celedonio Romero, founder and creator of the Romeros guitar dynasty, was a renowned soloist in Spain who began teaching his sons as they approached the age of two or three. Although Celedonio passed away in 1996, his descendants--Celin, Pepe, Lito, and Celino Romero--continue to perform in his honor. This unparalleled family ensemble has become the international emissary for guitar chamber music, their name synonymous with style, elegance, and technique.
In 1957, the family immigrated to the US, where the Romeros' guitar quartet stepped onto the stage, becoming the first of its kind. Since then, the Romeros have performed with virtually every major symphony orchestra in the US, including those of Boston, Cleveland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Pittsburgh, and Detroit. The family has twice been invited to the White House; in 1983 they appeared at the Vatican in a special concert for His Holiness Pope John Paul II; and in 1986 they performed for His Royal Highness Prince Charles, Prince of Wales. Regular festival appearances include the Hollywood Bowl, Blossom, Wolf Trap, Saratoga, Flagstaff, and Garden State. For over 40 years, three generations of Romeros have inspired composers to enrich the repertoire
Tonight's performance marks The Romeros' fourth appearance under UMS auspices. The Romeros made their UMS debut in 1974 and were last presented by UMS in January 2000.
of guitar quartet with orchestra, which includes works by such distinguished composers as Joaquin Rodrigo, Federico Moreno Torroba, Morton Gould, Francisco de Madina, and Lorenzo Palomo.
The Romeros have been the subject of many television programs, including PBS's documentary The Romeros: Guardians of the Holy Grail of Classical Guitar.
In addition to a rigorous performance schedule, the family continues to function as a cultural icon. In 2000, His Royal Majesty Juan Carlos I knighted Pepe and Celin Romero into the Order of Isabel la Catolica, Spain's highest honor.

Hello Friends and Neighbors,
It's with great pleasure and anticipation that we've tuned up our instruments and warmed up our voices in your city today. Thank you for coming out to join us in the festivities! Since our gathering is a musical one I have some musings on the subject...
When my daughter was born I spent quite a while trying to decide what song she would first hear when she came home from the hospital. The first song in her life! What record would I play for her I had been playing guitar and singing since I was eight years old and yet it never occurred to me that I could sing her that first song myself. Although we ended up listening to some great recorded music that day (The Melodians, a Jamaican rocksteady vocal trio, just fantastic) lately I've been considering the place where the recordings end and the soulful homemade singing and playing can begin.
Yes, these days I have a vision of a new and improved America! A singing, dancing, freewheeling, shaking, inclusive America. Someone
once asked me "Dan, how can we sing 'Cock-a-doodle-doo' when there are all these crazy
things happening in the world " That's just it! That's why we sing! It restores our
spirits and gives us hope for the future, it gives us a sense
of life's best possibilities. When we make music together we share our
stories. We welcome each other into our lives. We give our children new ideas for social living and in return they show us how to dance like bears, or birds, or ice cream cones. And we have fun... unbelievable fun.
I love being in the world of families because these are the people (from lack of sleep perhaps) who seem most likely to step into the unknown, and spontaneous casual music-making is, for most people, the unknown. I can't say that it won't feel a little awkward the first time someone suggests to dinner guests that they all sing "Rock Island" or "El Canario" before the meal but I can guarantee that it will be memorable and probably exciting. The first time family and friends sing together in any capacity new traditions are made, bonds are created, spirits are lifted, and the world suddenly becomes a more musical and peaceful place.
Thank you for joining us today. It may look at first like a show or a performance with a band and an audience but in truth we're all in it together. Think of it as a house party, family reunion, or
neighborhood block party. Some of us have instruments but everyone has a voice or dancing
feet or clapping hands. This is our day together and when the house lights
go up and we all head on down the road, let's be sure to make it a musical one!
Dan Zanes is the 21st-century version of the guy who in the old days used to conduct the town band from the gazebo, though in lieu of a gazebo he and his scruffy band are playing places like Carnegie Hall and The Melbourne International Arts Festival. He is a ringmaster, introducing new songs and reconnecting people to songs that have always been there. Lately, Dan has been having a rocking time with new musical friends from the Latino world in and around New York City. The result: Dan Zanes & Friends' jNueva York!, a collection of songs from Puerto Rico, Mexico, Colombia, the Dominican Republic, and other parts of the Spanish-speaking Americas, released in June 2008. Dan Zanes's first family-oriented CD was Rocket Ship Beach (2000), an immediate hit with families around America. This was followed by several more home-recorded family discs, including the Grammy-nominated House Party (2003) and the Grammy Award-winning Catch That Train (2006), which was co-released by Starbucks. His Festival Five Folk CDs include Sea Music, a collection of maritime songs that was featured in Rolling Stone's 2003 "Hot Issue," and Parades and Panoramas: 25 Songs Collected by Carl Sandburg for The American Songbag, a collection of songs gathered by the poet in 1927 and dragged kicking and screaming into the 21st century by Dan Zanes.
Keeping things all in the family, Dan also spent some time in 2007 with bandmate Father Goose (aka Wayne Rhoden) and longtime recording ally Rob Friedman co-producing It's a Bam Bam Diddly!--a musical memoir of sorts, sounding very much like the most incredible block party stretching from Jamaica to Brooklyn and spilling out into neighborhoods around the globe. Dan has recorded in his basement and living room studios with a long list of people, including Lila Downs, Aimee Mann, Dahphne Rubin-Vega, Lou Reed, Dar Williams, Deborah Harry, Angelique Kidjo, Bob Weir, Philip Glass, the Kronos Quartet, and the Blind Boys of Alabama. Dan is the author of two books with artist Donald Saaf, Jump Up! and Hello Hello (Little, Brown and Company), and he can be seen in the Dan Zanes & Friends concert video and DVD entitled All Around the Kitchen!. Dan Zanes is currently in pre-production for a pilot with Playhouse Disney.
This afternoon's performances mark the fourth and fifth UMS appearances by Dan Zanes & Friends. Dan and the group made their UMS debut in March 2005 and last appeared in November 2006 at Rackham Auditorium.

Members contribute their time and talents in a wide variety of ways consistent with their interests.
Fundraising projects include the Ford Honors Program Gala, On the Road Auction, and Delicious Experiences Advisory Ambassadors and Youth Performance Ushering are two projects that involve direct contact with local school?children, teachers, and community groups.
All Advisory Committee members serve as UMS advocates to the greater community by encouraging attendance at UMS performances and participation in UMS and Advisory Committee programs and events.

Orientation and training sessions are held each fall and winter, and are open to anyone 18 years of age or older. Ushers may commit to work all UMS perform?ances in a specific venue or sign up to substi?tute for various performances throughout the concert season.

ANNUAL FUND SUPPORT
July 1, 2007-November 1, 2008

This list includes donors who made an annual gift to UMS between July 1, 2007 and November 1, 2008. Due to space constraints, we can only list those who donated $250 or more.
