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
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
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 or call me at 734.647.1174.
And thanks again for coming to this event.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
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.

Smoking Areas
University of Michigan policy forbids smoking in any public area, including the lobbies and restrooms.
Start Time
UMS makes every effort to begin concerts at the published time. Most of our events take place in the heart of central campus, which does have limited parking and may have several events occurring simultaneously in different theaters. Please allow plenty of extra time to park and find your seats.
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.

UMSAnna Is
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. 73 ("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.

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, 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.
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 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.
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 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 features two hand-woven tapestries: Modern Tapestry by Roy Lichtenstein and Volutes (Arabesque) by Pablo Picasso.
The Power Center seats approximately 1,400 people.
Arbor Springs Water Company is generously providing complimentary water to UMS artists backstage at the Power Center throughout the 0809 season.
Rackham 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 home of the Kelsey Museum. When Horace H. Rackham, a Detroit lawyer who believed strongly in the importance of the study of human history and human thought, died in 1933, his will awarded the University of Michigan the funds not only to build the Horace H. Rackham Graduate School, which houses Rackham Auditorium, but also to estab?lish a $4 million endowment to further the development of graduate studies. Even more remarkable than the size of the gift is the fact that neither he nor his wife ever attended the University of Michigan.
Designed by architect William Kapp and architectural sculptor Corrado Parducci, Rackham Auditorium was quickly recognized
as the ideal venue for chamber music. In 1941, UMS presented its first chamber music festival with the Musical Art Quartet of New York per?forming three concerts in as many days, and the current Chamber Arts Series was born in 1963. Chamber music audiences and artists alike appreciate the intimacy, beauty, and fine acoustics of the 1,129-seat auditorium, which has been the location for hundreds of chamber music concerts throughout the years.
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.

Born in Melbourne, Australia, John Williams can be regarded as a foremost ambassador of the guitar. He was taught by his father and later attended summer courses with Segovia at the Academia Musicale Chigiana in Siena, Italy and the Royal College of Music in London. By the early 1960s he had performed in London, Paris, Madrid, Japan, Russia, and the US; he has since toured the world playing both solo and with orchestra, and regularly on radio and television.
Amongst his collaborations with other musicians, those with Julian Bream, Itzhak Perlman, Andre Previn, Cleo Laine, and John Dankworth are particularly important. His other musical activities have included the groups SKY, John Williams and Friends, Attacca, collaborations with The National Youth Jazz Orchestra with Paul Hart, Paco Pefia, the Chilean group Inti-lllimani, Richard Harvey, and jazz guitarist John Etheridge, with whom he teamed up for a highly successful duo tour in the UK and US in 0607. The duo's program "Places Between" was also recorded by Sony BMG and released in 2006.
Mr. Williams maintains a wide-ranging interest in contemporary music. Examples include his recording of music by the Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu with the London Sinfonietta, From Australia featuring the music of Peter Sculthorpe and Nigel Westlake, and The Black Decameron with music by the Cuban composer Leo Brouwer which includes Brouwer's Concerto No. 4.
In 2001 Sony Classical released his CD entitled The Magic Box in which his group John Williams and Friends presented adaptations of African music. Sony also recently released a solo CD entitled El Diablo Suelto, a collection of Venezuelan music.
Mr. Williams plays often for films, which have included The Deerhunter (Cavatina) and A Fish Called Wanda. Mr. Williams also plays tennis (badly), badminton (average), chess (quite well), table tennis (better), and likes talking (about anything). He lives in London.

Good Friday Music from Parsifal (1882) Richard Wagner
Born May 22, 1813 in Leipzig, Germany Died February 13, 1883 in Venice, Italy
Snapshot of history... In 1882:
Igor Stravinsky, Virginia Woolf, James Joyce, and FDR are born

Buhnenweihfestspiel--this mouthful of a German word (really four words in one) is what Wagner called Parsifal, his final opera. The word translates as "stage-consecration-festival-play," or "festival play to consecrate a theater." The Bayreuth Festspielhaus, the theater especially constructed for the performance of Wagner's works, had opened in 1876 with the Ring cycle (the first two operas of which had been previously given in Munich), but it was Parsifal that had been conceived entirely with the festival atmosphere in Bayreuth in mind. Based on the medieval poems of Chretien de Troyes and Wolfram von Eschenbach, the opera's action is much more spiritual and symbolic than that of any of the earlier Wagner works. It is all about the inner evolution of a hero, a wild and ignorant youth when we first see him, who experiences illumination by learning to feel empathy with the suffering of others. Durch Mitleid wissend, der reine Tor (wise through compassion, the pure-hearted fool) eventually makes himself worthy of the Holy Grail of which he becomes the ruler at the end of the opera.
Parsifal, in other words, presents a rite of passage. The Nordic pagan mythology whose characters populated the Ring gave way to Christian imagery here; Parsifal's spiritual awakening is set against the background of nature's awakening in springtime and the religious renewal of the Easter season. Therefore, the Good Friday music from Act III is the very heart of the opera; the mystery of Christ's death and resurrection inspires Parsifal's conversion and symbolizes the transition
from darkness to light that is the real meaning of Wagner's work.
In the opera, the "Good Friday Spell" is not a purely orchestral excerpt but includes singing parts. The stage is set in the forest near the castle of Montsalvat, where the Holy Grail (the chalice in which Joseph of Arimathea had gathered Christ's blood) is preserved. Gurnemanz, an old knight of the Grail and Parsifal's mentor, anoints the younger man as King of the holy brotherhood. Parsifal's first action as a ruler of the Grail is to baptize Kundry, a mysterious sorceress who, formerly in the service of the evil magician Klingsor, has long craved after the light and truth of the Grail.
Parsifal is enraptured by the beauty of the forests and meadows that stand in bloom as the day begins to dawn. He does not understand how nature can exult on this, the most tragic of all days. Gurnemanz explains to him how the magic of Good Friday tums the sinners' tears into holy dew and makes all the wonders of nature possible. The world rejoices because through the Salvation it has become free from sin, and celebrates its Unschuldstag, its day of innocence.

Composer lannis Xenakis dies
Journeys have played a recurrent role in the works of John Adams. The composer has often spoken about his road trips across the Nevada desert which, he claims, have had an important effect on his music. Among his works, we find titles such as Short Ride in a Fast Machine or Road Movies. His Chamber Symphony was inspired in part by the "zipping" of the Roadrunner, the famous cartoon character. These associations give a deeper meaning to the high motoric energy which has always been
at the center of Adams's music, ever since his early minimalist period. Yet Adams has traveled very far during his 40-year career as a composer. The repetitive techniques derived from minimalism have been combined with a sophisticated and virtuosic instrumental writing in the works of the last two decades. Without betraying his former stance as a member of the opposition against the serial and neo-Romantic trends of the 1970s, Adams, the composer-conductor, has conquered the genres and institutions of today's symphonic mainstream.
The commission for Guide to Strange Places came from Holland, and Adams led the world premiere at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw with the Netherlands Philharmonic on October 6, 2001.
In the words of one critic: "The score begins in the motoric open-top vein of Fearful Symmetries or Road Movies, but soon drives us towards darker and more ambivalent territory. Mountainous landscapes rear up as barriers against progress, and frightening chasms interrupt the journey, which becomes progressively more nightmarish until motion is halted by a threatening bass melody."
Charles Ives.oneof Adams's favorite composers, had previously portrayed a merry journey gone awry in the scherzo of his Symphony No. 4, based on Nathaniel Hawthorne's short story "The Celestial Railroad." Of course, Adams takes his listener through completely different landscapes than did his great American predecessor. The sports car races through the provinces of Bart6k, Stravinsky, and Copland, with a quick visit to Jazzland as well. Yet the transitions are as gradual as in a print by MC Escher, so that we never notice when we cross a border. Everything is seen through the eyes of an extraordinary guide, thanks to whom every minute brings a new discovery.
Canto di speranza (Song of Hope) (1957)
Bernd Alois Zimmermann
Born March 20, 1918 in Bliesheim, near
Cologne, Germany Died August 10, 1970 in Grosskonigsdorf, Austria
Snapshot of history... In 1957:
Jean Sibelius dies
Dwight Eisenhower begins his second term as US President
The Soviet Union launches the first Sputnik
Boris Pasternak's novel Doctor Zhivago and Jack Kerouac's On the Road are published
Leonard Bernstein's West Side Story premiered
Shostakovich's Symphony No. 17 premiered
B.A. Zimmermann's best-known work is his monumental opera Die Soldaten ("The Soldiers," 1965), which takes atonal expressionism to its extreme and is probably the most difficult piece of music in the world. In spite of the success of the opera at its 1965 premiere, Zimmermann seems to have "fallen through the cracks" in some sense. A committed modernist, he nevertheless refused to go along with the radicalism of his younger contemporary Karlheinz Stockhausen, who came to dominate the new-music scene in Germany in the 1950s and 1960s. In recent years, the music of Zimmermann (who committed suicide in 1970) has enjoyed a major renaissance, and his large non-operatic oeuvre is becoming increasingly well known.
Canto di speranza is the completely revised version of a cello concerto Zimmermann had written in 1953. The composer re-scored the work for a smaller orchestra and reduced its original length, "tightening the dramatic structure" (in the words of commentator Michael Struck-Schloen). He also added a programmatic title in Italian (he had just spent time at the Villa Massimo in Rome on a scholarship), and in this new form, the concerto was introduced at the 1958 Darmstadt Festival, the mecca of contemporary music. The outstanding cellist and champion of new music Siegfried Palm played the solo part. In a 1985 article, musicologist Clemens Kuhn described this premiere a "disaster": "the singing cello lines were laughed at and booed as late Romantic anachronisms."
To be sure, Canto di speranza is anything but
a backward-looking work. It follows the 12-tone technique and even makes moves towards total serialism, arranging durations and dynamics in pre-conceived sequences as well. Even the use of the word canto is not meant to refer to a Romantic song: Zimmermann was inspired by the Cantos of Ezra Pound, one of the monuments of 20th-century modernist poetry, and the Pisan Cantos in particular, which he took, as he himself explained, as a symbol of human hope, devoid of any interpretation. Only the voice of hope, entrusted to the cello as a sort of vox humana, sings its canto di speranza, just as it speaks at once ardently and tenderly from the Cantos.
What Zimmermann could not and would not relinquish was musical narrative, or a form based on linear development, which was dismissed by the avant-garde at the time. In Canto di speranza, the cello (itself frowned upon in those days on account of its inherent lyricism) does sing ardently and tenderly. The composer showed that modernistic techniques are not only compatible with expressivity but even heighten it to a considerable degree. The serialized material follows a traditional form with an audible recapitulation at the end, resulting in what Struck-Schloen calls "a large-scale arch or 'arcade'" and creating a reassuring balance between turmoil and repose.
Symphony No. 5 in E-flat Major, Op. 82
(1915-19) Jean Sibelius
Born December 8, 1865 in Hameenlinna, Finland Died September 20, 1957 in Jarvenpaa, Finland
Snapshot of history... In 1919:
Versailles Peace Conference opens

Richard Strauss's Die Frau ohne Schatten premiered
The Spanish influenza pandemic rages around the world
During the one meeting Jean Sibelius had with Gustav Mahler, the latter spoke about the need for the symphony to be all-embracing, to be a world unto itself. Sibelius, for his part, insisted on "the
profound logic that created an inner connection between all the motifs." The use of the word "logic" does not necessarily imply something overly cerebral or rational. It merely means that for Sibelius, structural considerations were all-important. For Mahler, the germ out of which a symphony grew was often a metaphysical idea, and structural concerns could become secondary to the expression of his personal emotions. On the other hand, Sibelius, who was extremely reticent when it came to private matters, would take simple musical motifs as his points of departure and use them to build edifices of surpassing grandeur and majesty. Expressivity is a direct result of this imposing musical architecture. In other words, structural coherence was the Finnish master's way of "embracing the entire world."
Sibelius had inherited from Beethoven and Brahms the idea that everything in a symphonic work had to grow organically from a small number of basic elements. Yet he implemented this classical principle in entirely new ways, modifying and expanding upon the traditional notions of exposition, development, and recapitulation.
In Beethoven and Brahms, short motifs (three or four notes) were usually organized into larger units such as periods, which are typically eight-measure segments with symmetrical inner divisions. These segments were in their turn incorporated into the even larger framework of the exposition, itself part of the architecture of the entire movement. Sibelius, in his Symphony No. 5, skipped the middle level of the musical period almost completely, and built his large-scale architecture directly from the smallest elements. Therefore, the growth of the music we perceive is not small to medium to large, but proceeds, instead, from a soft opening to a great climactic moment so gradually that the intermediary stages are almost impossible to distinguish.
The opening may strike some listeners as a slow introduction. It is somewhat tentative and hesitant, and emphasizes single intervals repeated in different instrumentations. It seems that the music does not immediately "get going." Yet it eventually becomes clear that this is not an introduction at all but the main body of the movement. The opening motif is developed in two successive surges: the volume and the density of the music go through two cycles of gradual increase and decrease. Then a new section begins with a highly chromatic passage (that is, one
that uses many half-steps not part of the main key). This passage, played by the solo bassoon, is marked lugubre and patetico; it leads, again very gradually, into the next tempo ("Allegro moderato"). Some commentators interpret this as the beginning of a new movement, bringing the number of the symphony's movements from three to four. Others prefer to regard it as part of the first movement. The very possibility of such a disagreement is a sign of the typically Sibelian blurring of the boundaries.
The "Allegro moderato" section has the character of a scherzo (the traditionally playful middle movement in many classical symphonies). Its thematic material, however, is derived from the horn theme with which the symphony opened. The scherzo begins as a gentle dance with a tender melody played by the woodwind in parallel thirds. A new theme is then introduced by the trumpet, but as it is developed it becomes increasingly clear that it, too, is a variation of the symphony's first two measures. This second theme is developed contrapuntally in the last section of the movement, dominated by the short and well-separated notes in the strings and the soft strokes of the timpani.
Next comes an "Andante mosso, quasi allegretto" (a somewhat brisk walking tempo), which takes the place of the slow movement. It is a set of variations in the key of G Major (an audible contrast to the E-flat of the preceding movement). The theme is first introduced by pizzicato (plucked) violas and cellos, answered by a pair of flutes. The variations become less and less predictable as the movement wears on. First the tempo broadens to "Tranquillo" and the E-flat Major tonality is temporarily resumed; then the music speeds up again, settling once more in G Major. (That key is usually considered, and treated, as lighter and more jovial than E-flat Major.) It is at this point that a new motif, made up of wide leaps, appears in the bass.
This motif, easy to overlook here, plays an important part in the finale. It is what the famous British music analyst, Sir Donald Francis Tovey, described with the words "Thor swinging his hammer," referring to the Nordic thunder god after whom Thursday has been named. (Thor is also well known to Wagnerians as Donner from Das Rheingold.) Listening to this melody, which moves rather slowly with wide melodic leaps, it is not hard to visualize a supernatural being displaying his enormous strength.
In Sibelius's finale, the "Thor" theme is combined with another idea in perpetual motion, but this is eventually phased out and Thor takes over completely. The tempo becomes slower and slower, the hammer blows stronger and stronger, until the last six widely-spaced strokes that provide one of the most original endings in the entire symphonic literature.
Symphony No. 5 seems to have given Sibelius more trouble than any of his symphonies. He mentioned it in his diaries as early as 1912, but progress on the new work was slow at first. In September 1914, the composer wrote in his diary: "In a deep dell again. But I already begin to see dimly the mountain that I shall certainly ascend...God opens His door for a moment and His orchestra plays the Fifth Symphony."
After the first performance on Sibelius's 50th birthday, the composer withdrew the score and presented a revised version the following year. Still dissatisfied, he made more changes and finally introduced the definitive version in 1919. The intermediate version has not survived but the 1915 original has; it has received some performances lately, but it has remained a curiosity. Sibelius's final version has of course remained the standard form in which the symphony is known.
In January 1918, while Sibelius was still revising his symphony, a civil war broke out in Finland. The country had been under Russian domination until the year before; now it became a battleground between the Red Army and the Finnish nationalist forces, known as the Whites. Sibelius's sympathies were with the latter, and as the Red troops advanced, he and his family were forced to leave their villa at Jarvenpaa and take refuge at the Lapinlahti Asylum in Helsinki where the composer's brother Christian was senior psychiatrist. Sibelius reportedly lost 40 pounds as a result of wartime food shortages. However, by May 1918, he had resumed his creative work and was able to report in a letter that he had "practically composed anew" his Symphony No. 5. But the premiere had to wait until the war was over. It took place, finally, in the new Finnish Republic, established on June 17, 1919. National independence, a cause that had inspired so much of Sibelius's early music, had at last become a reality; and the mature Sibelius-long a legend in his native country--was among the first to celebrate this great event with the final version of one of his most grandiose works.
Program notes by Peter Laki.
American conductor David Robertson is highly acclaimed worldwide for his impeccable musicianship, exhilarating presence, and innovative programming, which continue to inspire and enthrall audiences and fellow musicians alike. Equally at home in both orchestral and operatic realms, Mr. Robertson's combination of passion and intellect have established him as a leading interpreter of both the standard classical repertoire as well as less traditional works of our time. In the fall of 2008 Mr. Robertson began his fourth season as Music Director of the 129-year-old Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (SLSO), while continuing as Principal Guest Conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra, a post to which he was appointed in 2005.
In addition to his commitments with the SLSO, Mr. Robertson continues toguest conduct nationally and internationally throughout the 0809 season. Highlights of the season include several world premieres of works by composers such as Miroslav Srnka with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Sam Hayden with the BBC Symphony, and Ivan Fedele with the Filarmonica della Scala. In April 2009, Mr. Robertson brings his orchestra to New York's Carnegie Hall for two consecutive concerts featuring works by Wagner and Sibelius, as well as the New York premiere of Saariaho's Mirage with soprano Karita Manila and cellist Anssi Karttunen. In addition, Mr. Robertson conducted The Juilliard Orchestra as part of the inaugural concert of the much-anticipated Alice Tully Hall Opening Nights Festival on February 22, and in a second concert on February 26. Additional guest appearances in the US include performances with the New York Philharmonic, Boston Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, and Seattle Symphony. International conducting relationships include the Edinburgh Festival, La Scala, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, Berlin Philharmonic, and Bayerischer Rundfunk Symphonieorchester.
Born in Santa Monica, California, Mr. Robertson was educated at London's Royal Academy of Music, where he studied French horn and composition before turning to orchestral conducting. Mr. Robertson is the recipient of Columbia University's 2006 Ditson Conductor's Award, and he and the SLSO received the ASCAP Morton Gould Award for Innovative Programming for the 0506 season from the League of American Orchestras. Musical America named him "Conductor of the Year" for
2000. In 1997, Mr. Robertson received the Seaver National Endowment for the Arts Conductors Award, the premier prize of its kind given to exceptionally gifted American conductors. In May 2007, he was granted an honorary doctorate from Maryville University. Mr. Robertson and his wife, pianist Orli Shaham, are parents of twin boys. Mr. Robertson also has two teenage sons.
The Finnish cellist Anssi Karttunen is one of the most renowned and versatile musicians in the classical music world today and enjoys a busy career as a soloist and chamber music player. He performs on modern cello, classical and baroque cellos, and on violoncello piccolo. Mr. Karttunen performs all the standard cello works, but has also discovered many forgotten masterpieces and arranged a number of pieces for cello.
Mr. Karttunen is a passionate advocate for contemporary music and has given over 50 world premieres of works by composers such as

Magnus Lindberg, Kaija Saariaho, Rolf Wallin, Luca Francesconi, and Tan Dun. He gave the world premieres of Lindberg's Cello Concerto in 1999 with Orchestre de Paris, Esa-Pekka Salonen's Mania in 2000 with Avantil, Martin Matalon's Cello Concerto in 2001 with Orchestre National de France, and Francesconi's Cello Concerto in 2004 with RAI Torino. The Boston Symphony Orchestra commissioned a concerto from Saariaho for Mr. Karttunen, which received its premiere in February 2007. The European premiere took place in March 2007 with the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
Mr. Karttunen has worked with outstanding orchestras such as the Philadelphia Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Symphony, London Sinfonietta, NHK Orchestra, Munich Philharmonic, Ensemble Modern, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Orchestra, Danish Radio Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, RAI Torino, Finnish Radio Orchestra, and the Helsinki Philharmonic.
Mr. Karttunen was born in 1960. His teachers included Erkki Rautio, William Pleeth, Jacqueline du Pre, and Tibor de Machula. Between 1994-1998, he was artistic director of the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra. He was also artistic director of the 1995 Helsinki Biennale and the Suvisoitto-Festival in Porvoo, Finland from 1994-1997. From December 1999-June 2005, Mr. Karttunen was principal cellist of the London Sinfonietta. He has also appeared as conductor: in February 2000 he conducted Lindberg's Kraft in Antwerp, and in January 2003 he led the Los Angeles Philharmonic Cello Ensemble.

This evening's performance marks the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra's fourth UMS appearance. The Orchestra made its UMS debut in January 1936 conducted by Maestro Vladimir Golschmann, and last appeared at Hill Auditorium in January 1996 under the baton of Maestro Leonard Slatkin.
UMS welcomes Maestro David Robertson and cellist Anssi Karttunen who make their UMS debuts this evening.
Founded in 1880, the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra (SLSO) is recognized interna?tionally as an ensemble of the highest caliber, performing a broad musical repertoire with skill and spirit. In the 0809 season, the SLSO continues to build upon its reputation for musical excellence while maintaining its commitment to local education and community activities.
In December 2003, the SLSO announced the appointment of its 12th and second American-born Music Director, David Robertson. He began his inaugural season in September 2005, joining the SLSO after an 18-month international search. Prior to his SLSO appointment, Mr. Robertson was Music Director of the Orchestre National de Lyon and Artistic Director of Lyon's auditorium.
The SLSO expanded its audience through frequent tours of the Midwest and the East and West Coasts in the 1980s and 1990s. Tours to Europe in 1985, 1993, and 1998 and to the Far East in 1986, 1990, and 1995 spread the reputation of the Orchestra throughout the world. Appearances at New York's Carnegie Hall continue to garner critical acclaim. Recordings by the SLSO have been honored with six Grammy Awards and 56 Grammy nominations.
The SLSO was founded on the belief that great music should be available to everyone. Through a series of innovative and nationally recognized community-oriented activities, including many education and outreach programs, the musicians of the SLSO have shared their love for music with millions and introduced classical music to those who otherwise might not have been exposed to it. Each year, SLSO musicians participate in more than

250 free performances and events throughout the greater St. Louis area.
As part of this effort, the SLSO participates in the E. Desmond Lee Fine Arts Education Collaborative, a partnership between the SLSO, the University of Missouri-St. Louis, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, the Saint Louis Art Museum, Young Audiences of Saint Louis, the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts, and more than 90 schools in 12 area school districts.

Chick Corea and John McLaughlin are truly kindred spirits. Both are brave musical explorers and singular virtuosos on their respective instruments. As young jazz artists, they both did stints with the legendary Miles Davis and appeared together on the groundbreaking jazzrockfunk classic Bitches Brew. Each later ventured out to form his own revolutionary band: McLaughlin's Mahavishnu Orchestra and Corea's Return to Forever. The innovative music played by these two groups attracted huge audiences in the 1970s and helped shape a new genre of music, turning multitudes of rock fans on to a new form of jazz. Since then they have both had extraordinarily prolific careers, with continual creative output spanning many genres of music and in a host of different musical settings, while maintaining unparalleled artistic integrity--and becoming legends in their own right. Now, along with a group featuring some of the greatest musicians on the planet--Kenny Garrett on sax, Christian McBride on bass, and Brian Blade on drums--you can expect an eclectic night of highly creative music. From a nod to Miles to intimate duets, intricate acoustic jazz to burning jazz rockfunk, and, of course, Corea and McLaughlin classics, this musical pairing is one of the most important collaborations for jazz in our times-and an evening not to be missed.
One of the most creatively restless and indefatigably imaginative artists in jazz. Chick Corea defies categorization. He is equally at home in acoustic settings as in electric formats. He performs sublime solo concerts and welcomes richly arranged collaborations with orchestras. In recent years, he has explored new collaborations (including one with banjo virtuoso Bela Fleck on their duo album The Enchantment). revisited old bands (including an extensive tour with a quartet featuring Hubert Laws, Eddie Gomez, and Airto Moreira) and celebrated the 35th anniversary of his chamber jazz duo partnership with Gary Burton that resulted in 2007's remarkable two-CD set The New Crystal Silence.
Mr. Corea broke onto the jazz scene in the early 1960s, working with bands led by such stars as Mongo Santamaria, Willie Bobo, Blue Mitchell, Herbie Mann, and Stan Getz. One of his most significant sideman gigs was with Miles Davis'
seminal electric fusion bands from 1968-70, when he participated in the classic album Bitches Brew. It was there that Mr. Corea first met and worked with John McLaughlin. As a solo artist, he recorded his debut in 1966, Tones for Joan's Bones, followed by what has come to be known as a classic jazz recording, 1968's Now He Sings, Now He Sobs with Miroslav Vitous and Roy Haynes. While Mr. Corea's musical career teems with significant explorations and advances, one of his highlight moments came in 1971 when he created the legendary jazz-rock fusion band Return to Forever. While it lasted just seven years in three different editions, RTF is heralded as one of the most important and forward-looking bands in jazz history.
Veteran guitar grandmaster John McLaughlin has earned a place in the top echelon of the six-string pantheon. His virtuosity has been on display in a number of divergent settings throughout his celebrated career, beginning in the early 1960s as the electric guitarist for Georgie Fame's rocking Blue Flames. From there he covered a wide swath of musical
UMS Archives
This evening's performance marks Chick Corea's fourth appearance under UMS auspices following his UMS debut at the Power Center with the Chick Corea Quartet in October 1994. He last appeared at Hill Auditorium in April 2008.
Tonight marks John McLaughlin's second UMS appearance. Mr. McLaughlin made his UMS debut in November 1996 at the Michigan Theater with Paco de Lucia and Al Di Meola.

territory. In the late 1960s and early 1970s, he explored electric guitar jazz-rock fusion with Tony Williams's Lifetime and Miles Davis' Bitches Brew, On the Corner, and Live at the Cellar Door bands. (It was through Mr. McLaughlin's tenure with Davis that he got to work with Chick Corea.) Mr. McLaughlin also formed his own seminal fusion group, Mahavishnu Orchestra, which burst onto the scene with two artistic and commercial blockbusters: 1971's The Inner Mounting Flame and 1972's Birds of Fire.
While a fusion superhero, Mr. McLaughlin proved to be a master guitarist not content to dwell in predictable territory for too long a spell. He delved into acoustic guitar playing, working with Indian percussionist Trilok Gurtu as well as recording Time Remembered, a gorgeous acoustic
homage to Bill Evans. Mr. McLaughlin also toured with Spanish flamenco guitarist Paco de Lucia, composed two critically acclaimed concertos for classical guitar and orchestra, and played jazz-infused Indian classical music with his band Shakti. In 2005 McLaughlin recorded Thieves and Poets, his first new studio album in six years. It featured his buoyant, classical-tinged three-part suite for acoustic guitar and orchestra performed by him and The Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie conducted by Renalto Rivolta. His most recent album. Floating Point, another electric date with a band of Indian musicians, was praised by DownBeat as "a landmark recording, marked by detail, subtlety, and extraordinary moving performances."

Andras Schiff was born in Budapest, Hungary, in 1953 and started piano lessons at the age of five with Elisabeth Vadsz. He later studied with PSI Kadosa, Gybrgy KurtSg, and Ferenc Rados at the Franz Liszt Academy in Budapest and with George Malcolm in London.
Recitals and special cycles such as the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach, Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Schumann, and Bartok form an important part of Mr. Schiff's activities. In 2004, he began a series of performances in Europe exploring the 32 Beethoven piano sonatas in chronological order--a project recorded live for ECM New Series and released in eight volumes through 2008.
The Beethoven Sonata Project in its entirety continues this season at New York's Carnegie Hall, Los Angeles's Disney Hall, San Francisco's Symphony Hall, and Ann Arbor's Hill Auditorium. Individual recitals are also slated for Chicago, North Carolina, Ottawa, Philadelphia, Princeton, and Washington DC.

Birmingham Symphony Orchestra.
Since childhood, Mr. Schiff has enjoyed playing chamber music and from 1989-1998 he was Artistic Director of the internationally highly praised Musiktage Mondsee chamber music festival near Salzburg. In 1995, together with Heinz Holliger, he founded the Ittinger Pfingstkonzerte in Kartause Ittingen, Switzerland. In 1998, Mr. Schiff started a similar series entitled Hommage to Palladio at the Teatro Olimpico in Vicenza. From 2004-2007 he was Artist in Residence of the Kunstfest Weimar.
Mr. Schiff has established a prolific discography, including recordings for Teldec (1994-1997), LondonDecca (1981-1994), and, since 1997, ECM New Series. Recordings for ECM include the complete solo piano music of Beethoven and Janacek, a solo disc of Schumann piano pieces, and his second recording of the Bach Goldberg Variations. He has received several international recording awards, including two Grammy Awards for "Best Classical Instrumental Soloist (Without Orchestra)" and "Best Vocal Recording" with tenor Peter Schreier. Mr. Schiff was honored by the Royal Academy of Music with the institution's prestigious Bach Prize, sponsored by the Kohn Foundation. In 2006, Mr. Schiff and the music publisher G. Henle began an important Mozart and Bach edition project. Mr. Schiff resides in Florence and London.

UMS offers four programs designed to fit stu?dents' lifestyles and save students money. Each year, 18,000 students attend UMS events and collectively save over $350,000 on tickets through these programs. UMS offers students additional ways to get involved in UMS, with internship and workstudy programs, as well as a UMS student advisory committee.
Half-Price Student Ticket Sales
At the beginning of each semester, UMS offers half-price tickets to college students. A limited number of tickets are available for each event in select seating areas. Simply visit www.ums.orgstudents, log in using your U-M unique name and Kerberos password, and fill out your form. Orders will be processed in the order they are received. You will pay for and pick up your tickets at a later date at the Michigan League Ticket Office.
Winter Semester: Begins Sunday, January 11, 2009 at 8 pm and ends Tuesday. January 13 at 5 pm.

Rush Tickets
Sometimes it pays to procrastinate! UMS Rush Tickets are sold to college students for $10 the day of the performance (or on the Friday before weekend events) and $15 beginning 90 minutes before the event. Rush Ticket availability and seating are subject to Ticket Office discretion. Tickets must be purchased in person at the Michigan League Ticket Office or at the per?formance venue ticket office. Just bring your valid college ID. Limit two tickets per student.
UMS Student Card
Worried about finding yourself strapped for cash in the middle of the semester The UMS Student Card is a pre-paid system for Rush Tickets. The Card is valid for any event for
which Rush Tickets are available, and can be used up to two weeks prior to the perform?ance. The UMS Student Card is available for $50 for five performances or $100 for 10 per?formances. Please visit www.ums.orgstudents to order online.
Arts & Eats
Arts & Eats combines two things you can't live without--great music and free pizza--all in one night. For just $15, you get great seats to a UMS event (at least a 50 savings) and a free pizza dinner before the concert, along with a brief talk by someone knowledgeable about the performance. Tickets go on sale approximately two weeks before the concert.

Student Advisory Committee
As an independent council drawing on the diverse membership of the University of Michigan community, the UMS Student Advisory Committee works to increase student interest and involvement in the various pro?grams offered by UMS by fostering increased communication between UMS and the student community, promoting awareness and accessi?bility of student programs, and promoting the student value of live performance. For more information or to participate on the Committee, please call 734.615.6590.
There are many ways to support the efforts of UMS, all of which are critical to the success of our season. We would like to welcome you to the UMS family and involve you more closely in our exciting programming and activities. This can happen through corporate sponsorships, business advertising, individual donations, or through volunteering. Your financial investment andor gift of time to UMS allows us to continue connecting artists and audiences, now and into the future.
When you advertise in the UMS program book you gain season-long visibility among ticket buyers while enabling an important tradition of providing audiences with the detailed program notes, artist biographies, and program descrip?tions that are so important to the performance experience. Call 734.764.6833 to learn how your business can benefit from advertising in the UMS program book.
As a UMS corporate sponsor, your organization comes to the attention of an educated, diverse, and growing segment not only of Ann Arbor, but all of southeastern Michigan. You make possible one of our community's cultural treas?ures and also receive numerous benefits from your investment. For example, UMS offers you a range of programs that, depending on your level of support, provide a unique venue for:
Enhancing corporate image
Cultivating clients
Developing business-to-business relationships
Targeting messages to specific demographic groups
Making highly visible links with arts and education programs
Recognizing employees
Showing appreciation for loyal customers
For more information, please call 734.647.1176.
We could not present our season without the invaluable financial support of individual donors. Ticket revenue only covers half of the cost of our performances and educational events. UMS donors help make up the differ?ence. If you would like to make a gift, please fill out and mail the form on page P40 or call 734.647.1175.
UMS Advisory Committee
The UMS Advisory Committee is an organization of 70 volunteers who contribute approximately 7,000 hours of service to UMS each year. The purpose of the UMS Advisory Committee is to raise community awareness and funds for UMS's nationally acclaimed arts education program. 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.
Two upcoming events include:
Ford Honors Program and Gala January 24, 2009
This year's program will honor the Royal Shakespeare Company, RSC Artistic Director Michael Boyd, and U-M Professor Ralph Williams with UMS Distinguished Artists awards. Following the program and award presenta?tions, the UMS Advisory Committee will host a Gala reception and dinner to benefit UMS Education Programs.
On the Road Auction
For each of the last three years, approximately 300 people have enjoyed an evening of food, music, and silent and live auctions, netting more than $70,000 each year to support UMS Education Programs. On the Road 2009 will be held on September 11, 2009.
Please call 734.764.8489 for more information.
UMS Ushers
Without the dedicated service of UMS's Usher Corps, our events would not run as smoothly as they do. Ushers serve the essential functions of assisting patrons with seating, distributing pro?gram books, and providing that personal touch which sets UMS events apart from others.
The UMS Usher Corps is comprised of over 500 individuals who volunteer their time to make your concert-going experience more pleasant and efficient. 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.
If you would like information about becoming a UMS volunteer usher, contact our UMS Front-of-House Coordinator at 734.615.9398 or e-mail
July 1, 2007-November 1, 2008
Thank you to those who make UMS programs and presentations possible. The cost of presenting world-class performances and education programs exceeds the revenue UMS receives from ticket sales. The difference is made up through the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies. We are grateful to those who have chosen to make a difference for UMS! 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. Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of this list. Please call 734.647.1175 with any errors or omissions. Listing of donors to endowment funds begins on page P45.
