FROM THE U-M PRESIDENT
Welcome to this University Musical Society (UMS) performance. At the University of Michigan we are proud of UMS and of the world-class artists and ensembles it brings each season to the University and southeast Michigan.
We are also proud of the outstanding educational programs UMS offers to people of all ages and of the new works in dance, theater, and music it com?missions and premieres. Through the U-MUMS
Partnership Program, the University is pleased to pro?vide support to UMS as it car?ries out its commitment to education, creation, and pres?entation, paralleling the University's commitment to teaching, research, and public engagement.
UMS offers a variety of pro?grams designed to engage
U-M students in the arts. These include programs that provide academic context and background for arts performances, or combine arts performances with social activities; initiatives to make ticket pur?chases more affordable and convenient; and opportunities for students to gain direct experience in arts administration.
UMS is a member of the University's Public Goods Council (PGC), a cluster of campus organizations dedicated to advancing scholarship and culture through music, works of art, special collections, historical archives, natural science resources, per?formance programs, coursework, and experiential learning. The PGC promotes collaboration in ways that enrich the educational and cultural experience on campus and in the community.
I encourage you to attend more UMS events and those offered by the other many outstanding arts and cultural organizations of the University. To learn more about these activities, visit the University's website at www.umich.edu.

FROM THE UMS PRESIDENT
Welcome to this UMS performance. All of us associated with UMS are grateful that you're here. We hope you will enjoy the experience and attend more UMS events during our 131st season. You will find a listing of events on page 2 of this program book.
The UMS Fall 2009 Season. Many thanks to those of you who attended some of the out?standing events of the UMS Fall 2009 Season. Whether it was embracing a young artist making her UMS debut (cellist Alisa Weilerstein), laughing riotously at the behavior of the actors on and off the stage (Shakespeare's Globe Theatre's Love's Labour's Lost), or being totally captivated by the glorious sounds in the reverberant St. Francis sanctuary (Stile Antico), you demonstrated once again why artists like to come to Ann Arbor. You were totally engaged with them, listening intent?ly, absorbing their performances, and then letting them know how much you appreciate them. When I visited Sir Simon Rattle in his dressing room before his Ann Arbor debut as conductor of the Berliner Philharmoniker, the first words out of his mouth were, "There was no way Ann Arbor would be left off this tour. The orchestra members insisted we return here." When I visited with him after the concert, he picked up where he left off, saying, "And now I know why. What a glorious hall--and what a remarkable audience! I could hear them listening."
UMS Strategic Plan. In January 2009, UMS began a strategic planning process with the assis?tance of external consultant Stephen Y. Nose of SYN Associates in Ann Arbor. Many members of the UMS community took part in gathering data through focus groups, personal interviews, sur?veys, and other means in assessing competition, trends, products, and our partnerships. The UMS Board approved key goals and objectives in the fall, and the UMS staff is working on the develop?ment of implementation strategies to achieve them. Many of the goals and objectives deal with internal matters related to staff development, board and staff succession, the UMS brand, and our relationship with key partners including the University of Michigan. The most important objectives are those that deal most directly with
our mission, which is "To inspire individuals and enrich communities by connecting audiences and artists in uncommon and engaging experiences." These include enabling UMS to take greater artis?tic and programmatic risks on an ongoing basis, increasing participation of emerging and new audiences in UMS programs, and creating deeper UMS experiences by providing new and renewed connection points for audiences and artists in both virtual and physical spaces. Stay tuned for
more information as we complete the strategies.
Ford Honors Program.
The 15th Ford Honors Program occurs on Saturday, March 20 during the residency of the San Francisco Symphony when we honor both the SFS and its music director, Michael Tilson Thomas, with the UMS Distinguished Artist
Award. The format takes a different approach this year. The gala dinner precedes the performance, and a champagne reception follows, both planned and organized by our dynamic Advisory Committee. A very brief awards presentation on the Hill stage precedes the performance of Mahler's Symphony No. 2 featuring the SFS and the UMS Choral Union. Look for more informa?tion on our website at www.ums.org.
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.
Thanks again for coming to this event. Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
The UMS Lobby
In June 2009, UMS was one of four organizations awarded an "Innovation Lab" grant by EMCArts, with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation, to develop an idea that could have a profound impact on how they do business. UMS will launch a beta version of the project in February.
The UMS Lobby will expand and redefine what we mean by "the UMS experience." By combining online and live components in everything UMS does, we will enable a wide range of participants to engage more continuously and more deeply with each other, with the extraordinary history of UMS, with the artists we now present, and with the life of UMS in Ann Arbor and throughout the region.
The UMS Lobby is both a virtual and physical space where people meet, exchange ideas, and build relation?ships -a bridge between daily life and the special places we devote to artistic experiences. The UMS Lobby will include:
-Live preand post-performance events that extend the UMS experience
-A digitized historical archive that includes access to UMS's extraordinary 131-year history, including the opportunity to submit your own comments, memories, and observations about events that you've attended
-A multimedia blog with articles, video, audio, photos, and links
-Stories from patrons and others about the impact of UMS -in essence, a "living archive" that will grow with time and supplement the historical archive
-Conversation areas that include feeds from our facebook, twitter, and other networks, but that also provide a place to listen and to be heard
FROM UMS CHAIRMAN, JIM STANLEY
How fortunate we are to be part of a UMS audience experiencing artistic performanc?es that have the potential to transform lives. That is of little surprise given the role UMS has in inspiring us, enriching our community, and broadening our understandings of each other. Be it the sound of music, the movement of dance, or the voice of theater, UMS has brought extraordi?nary performances and new experiences from some of the world's most distinctive artists to us for 131 years. UMS is regarded as one of the country's most respected organizations bringing artists and audiences together. UMS makes a dif?ference.
UMS events are presented in many diverse venues, all of which are chosen to create an unusual bond between the performers and the audience. Both the seasoned attendee and the newcomer quickly grasp this unique connection. Lasting ovations and knowledgeable chatter of those leaving the hall let the artists know they have been deeply appreciated and understood. That atmosphere has established a special rela?tionship between UMS audiences and artists. It's been that way for generations.
But there is more than simply a few hours of respite from our busy lives. Our forbearers knew the importance of sustaining their emotional and intellectual spirit by revisiting the many cultural roots that surround them. And so do we. In today's times of world conflict and economic stress, UMS plays a most valuable role in sustain?ing our global community's well being. The 0910 season is a testament to that role. As a starter, the first half of the year witnessed the likes of the Berlin Philharmonic, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre of London, The Suzanne Farrell Ballet, and the Vienna Boys Choir The second half offers the classical music of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and the San Francisco Symphony, Lang Lang at the piano and Julia Fischer on the violin, the moods of Wynton
Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, the singing of Ladysmith Black Mambazo, the voices of St. Petersburg's Maly Drama Theater, the motion of Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, and the wit of The New Yorker music critic Alex Ross. These performances are a small bit of what UMS is doing for us now. It just doesn't get any better anywhere.
The UMS Board and I encourage you to engage yourself in the many experiences afford-
ed by UMS. Dare yourself to be exposed to the different sounds and colors that are part of our ever-shrinking planet. They are all here. Enjoy the pride in being among our individual and corporate donors whose contributions fund more than half the expenses of bringing worldwide artists to our doors each year. The
back of this program documents the wonderful support, both large and small, from our benefac?tors. Join them and participate as advocates for the cultural contributions that UMS offers to our greater community. Do it for yourself and for those who follow. Learn about us and talk to us at www.ums.org. We like to listen. And remem?ber how very fortunate you are to be part of the UMS difference.

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 intermission, as determined by the artist. UMS makes every effort to alert patrons in advance when we know that there will be no late seating. Please be sure the Ticket Office has your e-mail address on file.
UMS works with artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family performances.

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 131 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 mil?lennium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nur?ture, 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 performance of Handel's Messiah was in December of 1879 and this glorious oratorio has since been per?formed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
Many Choral Union members also belonged to the University, and 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 1879, 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 60 performances and more than 125 educational events each season. UMS has flourished with the support of a generous community that this year gathers in seven different Ann Arbor venues.
The UMS Choral Union has likewise expanded its charge over its 131-year history. Recent collaborations have included the Grammy Award-winning recording of William Bolcom's Songs of Innocence and of Experience (2004), Shostakovich's Symphony No. 13 ("Babi Yar") with the Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg (2006), John Adams's On the Transmigration of Souls with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2007), and Orff's Carmina Burana during Maestro Leonard Slatkin's opening weekend as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2008).
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 organiza?tion that supports itself from ticket sales, corpo?rate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
UMS VENUES AND BURTON MEMORIAL TOWER
Originally built in 1913, a $38.6-million dollar renovation overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects has updated Hill's infrastructure 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, the reworking of the west barrier-free ramp and loading dock, and improvements to landscaping. Hill Auditorium re-opened to the public in January 2004.
Interior renovations included the demolition of lower-level spaces to ready the area for future improvements, the creation of additional rest-rooms, the improvement of barrier-free circula?tion by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement of seating to increase patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual sys?tems, and the complete replacement of mechanical and electrical infrastructure systems for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning.
Hill Auditorium seats 3,575.
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre
Notwithstanding an isolated effort to establish a chamber music series by faculty and students in 1938, UMS began presenting artists in Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre in 1993 when Eartha Kitt and Barbara Cook graced the stage of the inti?mate 658-seat theater as part of the 100th May Festival's Cabaret Ball. This season the superla?tive Mendelssohn Theatre hosts UMS's Jazz Series concert presentations of the Bill Charlap Trio and The Bad Plus.
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. The Powers were immediately interested in supporting the University's desire to build a new theater, realizing that state and fed?eral governments were unlikely to provide finan?cial support for the construction of a 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 provid?ing 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.
Seventy 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 strong?ly in the importance of the study of human his?tory 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 establish 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 pres?ent church seats 1,000 people and has ample free parking. In 1994, St. Francis purchased 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 rever?berant sanctuary has made the church a gather?ing place for the enjoyment and contemplation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
University of Michigan Museum of Art
The University of Michigan Museum of Art (UMMA) is a dynamic meeting place for the arts that bridges visual art and contemporary cul?ture, scholarship and accessibility, and tradition and innovation. With the addition in March 2009 of the 53,000-square-foot Maxine and Stuart Frankel and the Frankel Family Wing and the restoration of historic Alumni Memorial Hall, UMMA ushered in a new era, a reimagining of the university art museum as a "town square" for the 21st century. With dramatically expand?ed galleries, special exhibition spaces that soar with new life, "open storage" galleries, and a range of lively educational and event spaces, UMS periodically presents events in multiple spaces throughout the museum.
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.

Now that you're in your seat...
Wu Han, Mr. Finckel, and Mr. Setzer couldn't have picked a program bringing more musical joy than the one you're about to hear. This joy has less to do with rambunctious, side?splitting laughter than with the profound happiness that results from the contemplation of flawless beauty. To hear both of Schubert's piano trios in a single evening is a rare treat. The magic of these two masterpieces derives, at least in part, from a perfect balance of "heart" and "brain." Thanks to a classically clear structure, we can always feel "safe," knowing exactly where we are coming from and where we are going. At the same time, the journey is full of surprises. Schubert's melodic and harmonic imagination is boundless, and every measure holds some unexpected discovery in store, even after 100 hearings.
Piano Trio in B-flat Major, Op. 99, D. 898
(1828) Piano Trio in E-flat Major, Op. 100, D. 929
Born January 31, 1797 in Vienna Died November 19, 1828 in Vienna
Snapshots of History... In 1828:
Andrew Jackson is elected President of the United States
London's Marble Arch is built
Sir Walter Scott writes his novel The Fair Maid of Perth
Spanish painter Francisco Goya dies at the age of 82
Noah Webster publishes his first dictionary of the English language
Beethoven dies on March 26, and Schubert is one of the pallbearers at the funeral
German physicist G. S. Ohm discovers his famous law
German poet Heinrich Heine publishes his Such derLieder, from which Schubert will set six poems to music
The Freeman's Journal, the first African-American newspaper, is published in New York
The French government patents the invention of the fountain pen
According to what evidence we have in lieu of Schubert's manuscript, the Piano Trio in B-flat Major was composed within weeks prior to the Op. 100 Piano Trio in E-flat Major, whose autograph is dated November 1827. Like many of Schubert's works, the B-flat Trio was not published until after the composer's death. It appeared in print only in 1836 as the composer's Op. 99. The E-flat Trio--which Schubert seems to have more actively peddled--was published in 1828 by Probst, in Leipzig.
In January 1828, Schubert wrote in a letter to a friend about the recent performance of a "new trio," given on December 26, 1827 under the auspices of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde (Society of Friends of Music). While the said trio is widely assumed to have been the E-flat Trio, the presentation of this same work as a "new" (which typically meant "never before heard") trio on a concert program three months later leaves open the possibility that the work premiered in December may in fact have been the B-flat.
Otherwise, the earlier B-flat Trio would have received only a private performance during Schubert's lifetime on January 28, 1828, courtesy of three of Vienna's top chamber musicians: pianist Carl Maria von Bocklet, violinist Ignaz Schuppanzigh (who, as the leader of 19th-century Vienna's finest string quartet, first gave voice to Beethoven's middle and late quartets), and cellist Josef Linke (Schuppanzigh's quartet colleague, and the first interpreter of Beethoven's Opp. 69 and 102 Cello Sonatas). The same three musicians had given the performance on December 26, whether this was of the first or second piano trio.
Schubert's particular pride in the E-flat Trio is evidenced by his inclusion of it as the centerpiece
on a program of his own music on March 26, 1828, commemorating the first anniversary of Beethoven's death. The shadow of Beethoven is significant, not only for Beethoven's profound influence on Schubert, but also for his own granite essays on the piano trio genre. Indeed, there may be no higher compliment than Robert Schumann's regard for Schubert's Op. 100 as equal to Beethoven's formidable "Ghost" (Op. 70, No. 1) and "Archduke" (Op. 97) Trios.
Despite his great physical suffering and psychological anguish at the end of his life, Schubert did not go quietly. His final year was staggeringly productive. Between mid-1827 and November 1828, Schubert completed, in addition to the two piano trios, the Fantasies in C Major for violin and piano, and in f minor, for four-hand piano; the "Great" Symphony No. 9 in C Major, the Cello Quintet; more than two dozen songs, including the presciently titled "Schwanengesang" (Swan Song); and the last three Piano Sonatas, in addition to numerous other piano, vocal, and orchestral works--an imposing set of masterpieces, miraculously concentrated within a deeply trying 12 months or so, unequaled by many composers over entire lifetimes. Schumann's reflection on the E-flat Trio poetically captures the meteoric luminosity of the end of Schubert's life: "Some years ago, a trio by Schubert passed across the ordinary musical life of the day like some angry manifestation in the heavens. It was his 100th opus, and shortly afterward, in November 1828, he died."
Program note by Patrick Castillo.
Wu Han ranks among the most esteemed and influential classical musicians in the world today. Leading an unusually multifaceted artistic career, she has risen to international prominence through her wide-ranging activities as a concert performer, recording artist, educator, arts administrator, and cultural entrepreneur.
In high demand as a recitalist, concerto soloist, and chamber musician, Wu Han has appeared at many of the world's most prestigious concert series and venues across the US and around the world. She is a frequent collaborator with many of today's finest musicians and ensembles, and appears extensively each season as duo pianist with cellist David Finckel. London's Musical Opinion said of the duo's Wigmore Hall debut: "They enthralled both me and the audience with performances whose idiomatic command, technical mastery, and unsullied integrity of vision made me think right back to the days of Schnabel and Fournier, Solomon and Piatigorsky."
In addition to her distinction as one of classical music's most accomplished performers, Wu Han has established a reputation for her dynamic and innovative approach to the recording studio. In 1997, Wu Han and Mr. Finckel launched ArtistLed, classical music's first musician-directed and Internet-based recording company, whose catalog of 11 albums has won widespread critical acclaim. The duo's recording for the ArtistLed label of the Rachmaninoff, Shostakovich, and Prokofiev sonatas for cello and piano received BBC Music Magazine's coveted "Editor's Choice" Award. This season, ArtistLed releases its 12th album, featuring contemporary works for cello and piano composed for David Finckel and Wu Han, by Bruce Adolphe, Lera Auerbach, Pierre Jalbert, and George Tsontakis.
Schumann's reflection on the E-flat Trio poetically captures the meteoric luminosity of the end of Schubert's life: "Some years ago, a trio by Schubert passed across the ordinary musical life of the day like some angry manifestation in the heavens.

Bela Fleck is often considered the premiere banjo player in the world. A New York na?tive, he picked up the banjo at age 15 af?ter being awed by the bluegrass music of Flatt & Scruggs. While still in high school he experimented with playing be-bop jazz on his banjo, mentored by fellow banjo renegade Tony Trischka. In 1980, he released his first solo album Crossing the Tracks. In 1982, Mr. Fleck joined the progressive bluegrass band New Grass Revival, making a name for him?self on countless solo and ensemble projects. In 1989, he formed the genre-busting Flecktones, with members equally talented and adventurous as himself.
Throughout his performing and recording ca?reer, Mr. Fleck has gained a reputation for virtually reinventing the image and sound of the banjo. He has been nominated for Grammy Awards in jazz, bluegrass, pop, country, spoken word, Christian, composition, and world music categories--more categories than anyone in Grammy history. Since 1998, Mr. Fleck has garnered 11 Grammy Awards and 27 Grammy Award nominations.
Throw Down Your Heart, the third volume in Mr. Fleck's renowned Tales From the Acoustic Plan?et series, is his most ambitious project to date. The album is a companion to the award-winning film
of the same name, which Mr. Fleck and director Sascha Paladino are currently premiering at festi?vals nationwide. Transcending barriers of language and culture, Mr. Fleck finds common ground with musicians ranging from local villagers to interna?tional superstars. In on-location collaborations with musicians from Uganda, Tanzania, Senegal, Mali, South Africa, and Madagascar, he explores the Af?rican origins of the banjo, the prototype of which was brought to American shores by African slaves. As to the origins of the banjo, Mr. Fleck comments,
When I went to Africa I found instruments and players that gave me a better sense of where the thing started. In Gambia and Mali in particular, I found what I was looking for! Huge numbers of slaves came west from this area. We were told that the musicians were allowed to play these instruments on the slave ships, and that many lives were saved due to it.
As will be demonstrated tonight, Bela Fleck has revealed subtle facets of African music, from the fully modern to the deeply traditional.
Bela Fleck and Bassekou Kouyate
Bassekou Kouyate is one of the true masters of the ngoni, an ancient traditional lute found throughout West Africa. The ngoni has been the main instrument in griot storytelling since the 13th century during the days of Soundiata Keita, the founder of the Mali Empire. (Oriots are West African wandering musicians, considered a repository of oral tradition.)
The sensational Segu Blue, which was released in 2007, is Mr. Kouyate's first solo album and fea?tures the first and only ngoni quartet. Mr. Kouy?ate has collaborated with both musicians from his homeland in Mali and international artists. He was one of the key musicians on AN Farka Toure's post?humous album Savane, stunning audiences world?wide as the band's solo ngoni player. Mr. Kouyate is a member of the Symmetric Trio alongside Toumani Diabate (kora) and Keletigui Diabate (balafon); par?ticipated in Taj Mahal's and Toumani Diabate's Ku-lanjan project; and features prominently on both Youssou N'Dour's latest album Rokku mi Rokka and Dee Dee Bridgwater's Red Earth.
Mr. Kouyate was born in Garana, a village almost 40 miles from Segu, in the remote coun?tryside on the banks of the Niger River. He was raised in a traditional musical environment, his mother a praise singer and his father and broth?ers exceptional ngoni players. Mr. Kouyate married the singer Amy Sacko, (the so-called "Tina Turner of Mali"), and they have been in high demand for the traditional wedding parties that happen in the streets of Bamako. Mr. Kouyate has assembled his own band, Ngoni Ba (The Big Ngoni), Mali's first ngoni quartet. The ensemble's repertoire is Bam-bara music, pentatonic in nature and as close to the blues as you can get in Africa, originating from the Segu region. As Taj Mahal said, "Bassekou is a genius, a living proof that the blues comes from the region of Segu."
Anania Ngoglia is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist from Tanzania. For the Africa Project, he plays the Wagogo thumb pia?no, also called the ilimba. a square-ish instrument about the size of a small laptop. In Tanzania, herds?men play its distinct, percussive sound in the fields. The Wagogo--a Bantu ethnic group based in cen?tral Tanzania--are known for having a distinctively mysterious scale in their traditional music. When Bela Fleck first heard Mr. Ngoglia play, he recog?nized a kindred spirit. Mr. Ngoglia proved himself to be an astonishing improvising artist with incred?ible range. His performances with Mr. Fleck were called "the spiritual high point of the program" by Afropop Worldwide.
John Kitime is an accomplished guitarist and vocalist with a deep knowledge of the history of Tanzanian music. For over 30 years, he has led the acclaimed Kilimanjaro Band. He has com?posed award-winning songs, including a theme song for the South African Development Commu?nity (SADC), and holds a certificate on Intellectual Property from World Intellectual Property Organi?zation (WIPO). Mr. Kitime is the Interim President of the Tanzania Musicians Network, a position that led him to Bela Fleck and the role of field producer for the award-winning film, Throw Down Your Heart. The film is the inspiration for the current US tour.
Tonight's concert marks the UMS debuts of Bela Fleck, Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba, Anania Ngoliga, and John Kitime.

Thirty-two professional singers form the Swedish Radio Choir--recognized since the 1960s as one of the great a capella choirs of the world, and frequently engaged by the foremost international conductors such as Claudio Abbado, Riccardo Muti, and Valery Gergiev for concerts, tours, and recordings.
Founded in 1925, the world took note of the Swedish Radio Choir in 1952 when Eric Ericson became its principal conductor, molding it into the flexible choral instrument that it remains today. Maestro Ericson transformed the Choir into an ensemble capable of performing advanced choral repertoire--works by Richard Strauss and Max Reger as well as music of its own day. Arthur Honegger heard his own choral music sung for the first time the way he had imagined it, and began spreading word that the Choir could sing practically anything. The Ericson sound became legendary. Many composers found the Swedish Radio Choir to be the ideal instrument for their music: composers such as Ingvar Lidholm, Sven-Erik Back, Lars Edlund, Gyorgy Ligeti, and Krzysztof Penderecki. The works they wrote specifically for the Choir count among the classics of choral repertoire in Sweden and internationally. Maestro Ericson retired after more than 30 years of service, but has been welcomed back many times as Conductor Emeritus.
Each successive Music Director since Maestro Ericson has impressed his individual stamp on the Choir and brought new colors and skills. In the 1980s, Anders Ohrwall shared his specialist understanding of Baroque music. Gustaf Sjokvist premiered works by Sven-David Sandstrom, Tomas Jennefelt, and Hans Gefors, while also presenting programs with Lill Lindfors, songwriter Olle Adolphson, and other guest artists from the popular sphere. Tonu Kaljuste, the first non-Swedish director, brought repertoire from Eastern Europe including the music of Arvo Part and Alfred Schnittke, while Stefan Parkman presented a series comprising all of Bach's major works. Peter Dijkstra was named Music Director of the Choir in 2007.
Since its first sensational tours to Berlin and Venice, the Swedish Radio Choir has carried on a rich and varied schedule of international activities, and is regularly invited to participate in international festivals and concerts. The Choir's work with Riccardo Muti and Claudio Abbado in the 1980s resulted in a series of acclaimed concerts and recordings. In 2009 the Choir toured the
Netherlands and Nordic countries and took part in a festival in Rotterdam and The Hague, joining forces with the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and Valery Gergiev and other important ensembles and conductors. Last year also brought an Italian tour with Claudio Abbado and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and five concerts in Brussels in recognition of the Swedish EU presidency, including performances of the Verdi Requiem with Daniel Harding. In 2010, in addition to their tour of North America under the direction of Ragnar Bohlin, the Swedish Radio Choir will tour to St. Petersburg to sing Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem under Valery Gergiev, and to Milan to sing Mahler's Symphony No. 2 "Resurrection" under Claudio Abbado, and to Japan.
The Choir is well represented on CD and DVD with performances of both a cappella and major symphonic works on such labels as Deutsche Grammophon, EMI, SONY, and Virgin Classics. A past American Grammy nominee, they were nominated this year for a 2010 Grammis Award, the Swedish Grammy Award, for their recording Satyhcon. The Swedish Radio Choir's vision is to deploy its exceptional sonic range to place its own special imprint on the a cappella and symphonic choral repertoires. It is an ensemble in which each individual voice finds its place in a unified artistic expression.
Ragnar Bohlin was named Director of the San Francisco Symphony Chorus in 2007, preparing them for performances under internationally renowned conductors and conducting them regularly in such pieces as Carmina Burana, Handel's Messiah, and Bach's Christmas Oratorio. His outstanding work has been recognized throughout the world most recently with three 2010 Grammy nominations for Mahler's Symphony No. 8 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony. Maestro Bohlin studied conducting with Jorma Panula and the legendary choir director Eric Ericson, piano with Peter Feuchtwanger in London on a British Council scholarship, and singing with the great Swedish tenor Nicolai Gedda. He holds a MM in Church Music and a postgraduate degree in Conducting from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm. Through a Sweden-America Foundation scholarship, he visited choruses throughout the US. With his Swedish Choirs,
the KFUM Chamber Choir, the Maria Magdalena Motet Choir, and the Maria Vocal Ensemble, Maestro Bohlin toured internationally earning prizes in international competitions and many distinctions including the prestigious Johannes Norrby Medal in 2006, for expanding the frontiers of Swedish choral music making. In June 2009 he made his Carnegie Hall debut conducting Brahms's Ein deutsches Requiem. In the spring of 2010, he will appear as guest conductor of the Sao Paolo Symphony Chorus.
Maestro Bohlin is heard frequently on radio with the Swedish Radio Choir, the Maria Vocal Ensemble, and the Maria Magdalena Motet Choir. He has worked regularly with the Ericson Chamber Choir, the Royal Philharmonic Choir, and the Royal Opera Choir of Stockholm, and in October 2007 he conducted the world premiere of a new requiem by Fredrik Sixten, broadcast on Swedish Public Radio. His recordings of the Saint Mark Passion by Sixten and another recording, Mysterium, of a cappella music, were released in Sweden in spring 2008. He has also recorded a CD of new jazz music by composerpianist Elise Einarsdotter with the Maria Vocal Ensemble and special guests Rigmor Gustafsson and Lena Willemark, and a CD with trombonistcomposer Christian Lindberg and the Swedish Radio Choir.
Maestro Bohlin has taught at the Royal Academy in Stockholm and was Visiting Professor at Indiana University in Bloomington in 2008.
This afternoon's performance marks the Swedish Radio Choir's third appearance under UMS auspices. The Choir made its UMS debut in February 2001 at Hill Auditorium in a performance of Verdi's Requiem with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir under the baton of Maestro Manfred Honeck. The Choir's debut was followed that weekend by an a cappella performance with the Eric Ericson Chamber Choir and Maestro Eric Ericson at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.
UMS welcomes Ragnar Bohlin, who makes his UMS debut this afternoon.

Cyro Baptista's Beat the Donkey appears by arrangement with Unlimited Myles, Inc.
Large print programs are available upon request.
Time Out New York sums up Cyro Baptista's musical gravity: "The man the stars call when they want that otherworldly flavor in the mix..." Since arriving in the US in 1980 from his native Brazil, Mr. Baptista emerged as one of the premiere percussionists in the country. Coinciding with the rise in the public's interest of world music, Mr. Baptista has managed to record and tour with some of music's most popular names. His mastery of Brazilian percussion and the many instruments he creates himself have catapulted him to world renown.
With his own project, the percussion and dance ensemble known as Beat the Donkey, Mr. Baptista gives free-reign to his imagination, mixing his tremendous musical skills, his natural humor, and theatrical ways with instruments from Brazil, the Middle East, Indonesia, Africa, and the US. Mr. Baptista's credits read like a "Who's Who" of modern music. He has toured extensively with Yo-Yo Ma's Brazil Project, Trey Anastasio's Band (of Phish), John Zorn's Electric Masada, Herbie Hancock's Grammy Award-winning Gershwin's World, Sting, and Paul Simon's Rhythm of the Saints. He has also performed with many respected Brazilian artists such as Milton Nascimento, Caetano Veloso, Ivan Lins, Marisa Monte, and Nana Vasconcelos.
Mr. Baptista has performed on five Grammy Award-winning albums: Yo-Yo Ma's Obrigado Brasil, Cassandra Wilson's Blue Light 'til Dawn, The Chieftains' Santiago, Ivan Lins' A Love Affair, and Herbie Hancock's Gershwin's World. Adocumentary on Beat the Donkey was recorded for the WGBH-TV Boston and continues to air on PBS stations nationwide. Additionally, he has collaborated with the Lincoln Center Jazz Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis for a Brazilian Carnaval concert.
The first Beat the Donkey recording (Tzadik) was picked by The New York Times as one of the 10 best alternative albums of 2002. Mr. Baptista has also been composing music for the children's television station Nickelodeon.
Beat the Donkey is more than just a band. It is a multicultural, polyphonic, highly creative, and entertaining group that takes rhythms beyond their natural frontiers and creates a brand of music too innovative and varied to be labeled. The ensemble's name comes from the Brazilian expression "Pau Na Mula" meaning "Let's go, let's do it!"
There is an undeniable aura of fun and humor whenever Cyro Baptista takes the stage; this is particularly true with Beat the Donkey. It is a wild, unstoppable, and torrid world beat percussive ensemble that blends and beats a bewitching stage stew of untamed percussion, tap dance, martial arts, samba, jazz, rock, and funk. They accomplish this by mixing instrumentation from all over the globe and unusual percussion inventions of Mr. Baptista's own creation. The musicians hail from all over the world, wear wild, elaborate costumes, and frequently leave their instruments to break into spontaneous dance, making the group fascinating to watch as well as listen to.
This afternoon's performances mark Cyro Baptista's third and fourth appearances under UMS auspices. Mr. Baptista made his UMS debut in performance with soprano Kathleen Battle in December 1996 and most recently performed in Ann Arbor alongside vocalist Luciana Souza and guitarist Romero Lubambo this past February at Rackham Auditorium.
UMS welcomes Beat the Donkey, who make their UMS debut this afternoon.
UMS EDUCATION AND AUDIENCE DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS
0910 Season: Breaking Down Walls
UMS's Education Program deepens the relation?ship between audiences and art, while efforts in Audience Development raise awareness of the positive impact the performing arts and educa?tion can have on the quality of life in our com?munity. The program creates and presents the highest quality arts education and community engagement experiences to a broad spectrum of constituencies, proceeding in the spirit of part?nership and collaboration.
Both literally and figuratively, the 0910 UMS Education season celebrates the breaking down of walls: literally in the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall and events surrounding the presentation of the Berlin Philharmonic; and figuratively, in the attempt to break down walls that impede personal and intellectual growth, participation in the arts, and connections to community. Each event chal?lenges participants to expand the way they think about art, culture, and creativity, and encourages a greater investment in UMS and the arts as a whole.
In this time of economic challenge, the UMS 0910 education programs "go deeper" with projects that encourage sustained engagement over time, allow a variety of entry points for a wide range of interests and audiences, and explore the diversity of artists, art forms, ideas, and cultures featured in the current UMS season.
