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 ensem?bles it brings each season to the University and southeast Michigan.
We are also proud of the outstanding edu?cational programs UMS offers to people of all
ages and of the new works in dance, theater, and music it commissions and premieres. UMS's educational programs for U-M students provide academic context and back?ground for arts performances in both classroom and infor?mal settings as well as direct practical experience in arts
administration through significant work-study and internship opportunities.
Through the U-MUMS Partnership Program, the University is pleased to provide support to UMS as it carries out its commitment to education, creation, and presentation, paralleling the Uni?versity's commitment to teaching, research, and public engagement.
UMS gained national distinction recently from two leading foundations when it received a three-year grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support UMS's commitment to classical music programming of "ambition, scope, and rigor" and a two-year grant from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation to partner with the U-M Health System on a project titled "Medical Training and the Arts." This project seeks to enhance the ability of medical students and house officers to deliver high-quality,
humanistic clinical care through immersion in and analysis of specially designed arts activities and to offer experiences in health care for artists. On the regional level, I'm excited that UMS is partner?ing with two key Detroit cultural institutions, the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and Michigan Opera Theater, to bring Mahler's Symphony No. 8 with its hundreds of performers to both Detroit and Ann Arbor in March 2011. A work of this magnitude can be mounted only when organizations commit to working together.
UMS is a member of the University's Public Goods Council (PGC), a cluster of campus orga?nizations dedicated to advancing scholarship and culture through music, works of art, special collec?tions, historical archives, natural science resources, performance programs, coursework, and experi?ential learning. The PGC promotes collaboration in ways that enrich the educational and cultural experience on campus and in the community. One of UMS's longtime PGC collaborators is the U-M Museum of Art whose new director, Joseph Rosa, joined us in July from the Art Institute of Chicago.
I encourage you to attend more UMS events and those offered by the many other outstanding arts and cultural organizations of the University. To learn more about these activities, visit the University's arts portal, Montage, at
Mary Sue Coleman
President, University of Michigan
Welcome! All of us associated with UMS are grateful that you're here at this performance. We hope you'll enjoy the experience and attend more UMS events during our 132nd season. You will find a listing of events on page 2 towards the center of this program book.
In these demanding economic times, people are focusing on the idea of "return on investment": What are the benefits realized for each dollar invested in a given project or organization In the nonprofit world, this question is often re-phrased as: Is the recipient of my donation using my money wisely and effectively
Here at UMS, I can assure you that the answer is a resounding "yes." Though the past few years have presented many challenges, we have main?tained our commitment to excellence in everything we do, whether it's presenting performances by great artists; offering educational events for stu?dents and the community; creating new ways for audiences to connect with artists through our new online initiative,; or running a lean, efficient, responsible organization.
Thanks to you, we achieved our goals for the past season, hitting both programmatic and finan?cial targets. We are committed to doing the same this season, and with your help we know we will.
We are fortunate at UMS to have an out?standing Board of Directors, led by Chair James C. Stanley, M.D. At the June annual meeting, we wel?comed five new members to the Board: Janet Calla-way, Stephen R. Forrest, Shelia M. Harden, Donald Morelock, and David N. Parsigian. We also recog?nized five Board members who completed six years of distinguished service on the Board and who will
now become members of the UMS Senate: Kathleen Benton, Charles W. Borgsdorf, Maxine J. Frankel, Patricia M. Garcia, and John J. H. Schwarz.
Feel free to get in touch with me if you have any ques?tions, comments, or prob?lems. If you don't see me in the lobby, send me an e-mail
message at or call me at 734.647.1174. Thanks again for coming to this event.
Very best wishes,
Kenneth C. Fischer UMS President
"In the nonprofit world, this question is often re-phrased as: Is the recipient of my donation using my money wisely and effectively Here at UMS, I can assure you that the answer is a resounding 'yes.'"
How very lucky we are to experience the sound of music, the movement of dance, and the voice of theater as members of the UMS audience. Engaging artistic accomplishments, innovation, and inclusiveness have been hallmarks of extraordinary UMS performances for 132 years. UMS has enriched and inspired our communities as well as those on stage: the orchestras, ensembles, soloists, troupes, and casts performing before us. UMS makes a difference to all of us.
UMS has established an exciting bond between audiences and performers. The emotional and intellectual spirit of wide-ranging events in various venues has a sustaining importance to our well-being, and the 1011 season's 80 performances are a testament to that value. Think of the classical music of Russia's Mariinsky Orchestra and St. Petersburg Philharmonic, the singing of Renee Fleming, the flow of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company, the moods of Wynton Marsalis and the Jazz at Lincoln Center Orchestra, Shakespeare's voice of England's Propeller Theater Company, the beat of Japan's Kodo, and the authentic American music of the Carolina Chocolate Drops or the heartfelt songs of Rosanne Cash. It doesn't get any better anywhere.
The UMS Board and I encourage all of you to join the entire UMS team in enjoying the 1011 season's performances. Dare yourself to embrace the sounds and sights of diversity in the perform?ing arts. They are the very essence of life on our
ever-shrinking planet and your exposure will brighten your days. Become advocates for the cultural contributions UMS offers to our greater communities. We welcome and appreciate your presence. Talk to us at and participate in our preand post-performance conversations at And
remember how lucky we all are to be enriched and inspired by the UMS experience.

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 works with artists to allow a flexible late-seating policy for family performances.

Through a commitment to presenta?tion, education, and the creation of new work, the University Musical So?ciety (UMS) serves Michigan audienc?es by bringing to our community an ongoing series of world-class artists, who rep?resent the diverse spectrum of today's vigorous and exciting live performing arts world. Over the past 132 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 commitment to dynamic and creative visions of where the performing arts will take us in this new millen?nium. Every day UMS seeks to cultivate, nurture, and stimulate public interest and participation in every facet of the live arts.
UMS grew from a group of local university and townspeople who gathered together for the study of Handel's Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and conducted by Profes?sor 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 performed by the UMS Choral Union annually.
Many Choral Union members also be?longed to the University, and the University Mu?sical 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 sea?son. 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 ex?panded its charge over its 132-year history. Re?cent 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 Mariinsky Orchestra (2006), Orff's Carmina Burana for Maestro Leonarc Slatkin's inaugural weekend as Music Director of the Detroit Symphony Orchestra (2008), and Mahler's Symphony No. 2 ("Resurrection") with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas (2010).
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, cor?porate and individual contributions, foundation and government grants, special project support from U-M, and endowment income.
Hill Auditorium
Originally built in 1913, Hill Auditorium re-opened to the public in January 2004 follow?ing a $38.6-million dollar renovation overseen by Albert Kahn Associates, Inc. and historic preservation architects Quinn EvansArchitects. The renovation updated Hill's infrastructure and restored much of the interior to its origi?nal 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.
Interior renovations included the demoli?tion of lower-level spaces to ready the area for future improvements, the creation of additional restrooms, the improvement of barrier-free cir?culation by providing elevators and an addition with ramps, the replacement of seating to in?crease patron comfort, introduction of barrier-free seating and stage access, the replacement of theatrical performance and audio-visual systems, and the complete replacement of me?chanical 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. Since then, UMS has pre?sented theater work, jazz ensembles, song recit?als, and more in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre, housed inside the Michigan League.
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 com?munity 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 Michi?gan had no adequate proscenium-stage theater for the performing arts. Hill Auditorium was too massive and technically limited for most produc?tions, 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, togeth?er with their son Philip, wished to make a major gift to the University. The Powers were imme?diately interested in supporting the University's desire to build a new theater, realizing that state and federal governments were unlikely to pro?vide financial support for the construction of a theater.
Opening in 1971 with the world premiere of The Grass Harp (based on the novel by Tru?man 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 orches?tra 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.
Rackham Auditorium
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 Audito?rium, 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 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 ap?preciate 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 Catho?lic 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 "mechani?cal action" organ with 34 stops and 45 ranks, built and installed by Orgues Letouneau 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 contem?plation of sacred a cappella choral music and early music ensembles.
Matthaei Botanical Gardens
In 1907, the University created a Botanical Gar?den and Arboretum on the land between Ged-des Road and the Huron River, just a few blocks from Central Campus on the site now known as Nichols Arboretum. At the time, the prop?erty consisted of approximately 80 acres. To?day, more than 100 years later, the University of Michigan Matthaei Botanical Gardens and Nichols Arboretum manages over 700 acres of gardens, research areas, and natural preserves around the Ann Arbor area with a complex of conservatory, greenhouses, laboratory, teach?ing and meeting spaces at Matthaei Botanical Gardens and the James D. Reader, Jr. Center for Urban Environmental Education at Nichols Arboretum.
Burton Memorial Tower
Seen from miles away, Burton Memorial Tow?er 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 fourth heaviest con?taining 55 bells and weighing a total of 43 tons. UMS has occupied administrative offices in this building since its opening.

About The List
There was always music in my house--my dad's music, the music my parents loved, the music of the fellow musicians and songwriters my dad brought home at the end of tours, and then the music I found on my own, when I became old enough to search out different radio stations and buy my own records.
The day after I graduated from high school in Ventura, California, I went on the road with my dad. We were riding on the tour bus one day in that summer of 1973, and we started talking about songs. My dad mentioned a song, and I said "I don't know that one." He mentioned another, and then another. I didn't know any of them. He became alarmed that I was so steeped in the rock and pop music of my time that I did not understand the vital importance of the songs that were my musical genealogy, the songs that had informed him, and would eventually inform me. He spent the afternoon making a list of songs for me. I can still see him, pensive, with his pencil raised above his legal pad, considering which sorgs would make the List. It was a list to educate me, to tell me about my Southern roots and my American history, about my legacy. He called the List "100 Essential Country Songs" but he could have called it "100 Essential American Songs," because he included history songs, protest songs, early folk songs, Delta Blues, gospel, Texas swing, and standards that simply defy genre.
I have held onto this List for 35 years.
This is the perfect collaborative project for my husband John and me. He loves these songs as I do, and he was aware of the need to choose and reinterpret them carefully, to reflect my Southern birth, my upbringing in southern California, a decade of living in Tennessee, and my life as a longtime New Yorker, as well as my own instincts as a songwriter and singer.
This record and concert are truly about history, respect, family, love, and legacy. To paraphrase T.S. Eliot, I have arrived where I started, and I have known it for the first time.
--Rosanne Cash
'...he could have called [the List] '100
Essential American Songs...'
Rosanne Cash is one of America's pre-emi?nent singers and songwriters. Over the past 30 years she has recorded 12 albums, and has had 11 1 singles. In that time she has navigat?ed her own path between country and rock, roots and pop, writing songs that are finely-wrought vignettes, both highly personal and universally appealing.
Ms. Cash is the keeper of an extraordinary fam?ily legacy. She was born in Memphis, Tennessee, on May 24, 1955, the eldest child of Johnny Cash and his first wife, Vivian Liberto.
After her parents separated she was raised by her mother in Los Angeles. Her father went on to marry singer June Carter, who also had an influ?ence on young Rosanne's musical path.
Following high school, Ms. Cash joined her father and stepmother's road show, working her way up from laundry duty to backup singer to so?loist. Prior to starting a full-time career in music, she studied drama at Nashville's Vanderbilt Uni?versity and at the Lee Strasberg Institute in Los Angeles.
Rosanne Cash's recordings included Right or Wrong, Seven Year Ache, Rhythm and Romance, King's Record Shop, Interiors, The Wheel, 10 Song Demo, Rules of Travel, and Black Cadillac. Her most recent album, The List, was released in the fall of 2009. The songs on it were selected from a list of 100 great American songs that her father gave her when she was 18 years old. The album features a duet with Bruce Springsteen and vocal contributions by Elvis Costello, Jeff Tweedy (Wilco), and Rufus Wainwright, and has been nominated for a Grammy Award and recently took top honors as "Album of the Year" at the 2010 Americana Music Honors and Awards.
Ms. Cash has also made her mark as a writer. She published a collection of short stories called Bodies of Water in 1995 and a children's book, Penelope Jane: A Fairy's Tale, in 2000. Her essays and fiction have appeared in various collections and publications, including The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Time Magazine, The Oxford Ameri?can, and New York Magazine.
Composed: A Memoir was published by Viking this past August. The book appeared on the New
York Times, Los Angeles Times, and Washington Post bestseller lists.
Over the course of her career, whether in music or on the printed page, Ms. Cash has articulated the most heartbreaking emotional realities: be?trayal, loss, misunderstanding, and isolation. But, in the family tradition, she always emerges with a firm belief in the limitless possibilities of personal redemption.
Rosanne Cash lives in New York City with her husband, producer and guitarist John Leventhal. She is the mother of five children.

Several kinds of music implanted in Latin America are known today because they were written down and have survived in manuscript anthologies. At first glance, they appear to be copies of European Renaissance and baroque scores, but some of them bear the unmistakable stamp of the Americas and distinctive marks of how the criollos and mestizos of the dominions conquered by the Spanish crown interpreted what they received. In music by several of the composers who worked in the Americas, this individual, distinctive sound derives from the overt or camouflaged incorporation of musics they heard in town and village streets and squares, or in genres such as the villancico and the accompanied romance, or ballad. European musical forms were adapted by the racially and culturally heterogeneous native population--the so-called castas and Latin American criollos. Theirs was a music created by an explosion of new accents and cadences colliding and reforming, couched in the poetry of the local languages. The culture of conquest fixed and honed musical forms into essential examples of beautiful simplicity and regularity that facilitated the successful evangelization of the indigenous peoples with musical and dramatic performances. In New Spain, for example, the cultural strategies of the distinct social groups immersed in processes of fusion, hybridization, and synthesis depended on the adopted identities as they competed to become vehicles of Hispanic culture. The heritages of America and Africa were combined with elements received from medieval, Renaissance, and baroque Europe. Imitation and adaptation created a special brand of music, grounded in a collective, anonymous inheritance from the Iberian Peninsula and which still bore echoes and reminiscences of the ancient Arab and Jewish traditions that predated the standardization and Westernization of the modes and tunings. As had happened earlier in the Kingdoms of Castile, local patterns in America evolved to represent the essence of what it was to be Spanish, Amerindian, and African. At the same time that percussion, wind, and string instruments, and their local adaptations (harps, vihuelas, violins, guitars, flutes, etc.) became established, new rhythms and styles of playing evolved with various ways of strumming and plucking guitars, vihuelas, and bandolas in bands with guitars of different sizes that provided a wider range of stylistic possibilities than the solo instrument. Innumerable features of European
music lived on in the development of performance practices, tunings, singing styles, and rhythms of the popular music of Latin America.
Zarabandas, tocotines, zambapalos, and chaconas were all familiar musical types in New Spain in the 16th century (one need only recall the zarabandas a to divino which led Pedro de Trejo to be brought before a court of the Inquisition in Michoacan in 1569). At the beginning of the 17th century, the Portuguese composer Gaspar Fernandes (1570-1629), then maestro de capilla of Puebla Cathedral, composed a "zarabanda tengue que tengue, zumba casu cucumbe." In 1626, Thomas Gage recounted how Fernandes' Amarilis song cycle, setting poems by the Spanish court poet Lope de Vega, was sung by the prior of the convent of Santo Domingo in the port of Veracruz. Entire fragments from a variety of guineos, zarambeques, muecas, and cumbes became embedded in and crystallized in the verses and refrains of the sones and the repertory of popular Mexican songs.
The Atlantic world, whose waters carried merchandise to the shores and ports of Latin America, lives on in the sound of canarios, guabinas, pajarillos, and corridos, as well as the fandangos, morenas, peteneras, and villancicos of the New World. Learned and improvised poetry also find expression in the poetic forms of the Spanish Golden Age: espinelasi 10-line units of octosyllabic verse), octosyllabic quatrains, romances, octavas reales, seguidillas, and hexasyllabic villancicos. In America, as on the Iberian Peninsula, a constant process of recreation (freely creative in its variety) preserved the forms of the past. Some of them can be traced even in responsorial chants from musicas de capilla and villancicos indianos, to the Afro-Cuban guaguancos (in which rhythmic sequences of clearly African origin are combined with poetic forms and rhyme patterns derived from Spanish). Moreover, as in the poetry of Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, we find lullabies containing Arabo-Andalusian echoes translated into Nahuatl, next to vestiges, traces, and fragments from Spanish romances newly reworked. A similar process is at work in the diferencias for harps and guitars, and accompaniments shaped around the melody of a ballad or the cadences of a son, glossing, revitalizing it, or improvising "in the local manner," thus contributing to the creation of new genres and original variations. The local sones of New Spain, which were the forerunners of the Mexican son,
therefore may preserve many features of colonial orchestrations. The traditional music (in particular, sones from Veracruz, Huasteca, and Guerrero) on this program is juxtaposed with the characteristic folias, jacaras, jotas, and fandangos of the early modern Iberian musical repertory.
This program, the fruit of new musical encounters, reflects in its continuum of sones, folias, and ancient tablatures, a constant process of globalization, that has swept like a tireless wind through the territories of the Iberian Peninsula and the Americas, and which invites a fresh interpretation and an original exploration of new possibilities, linking us to tradition and to the past. Contrasting elements are given expression in emblematic performances and dramatizations with tunes from both sides of the Atlantic-songs of voyages there and back--which even today continue to convey the background sound of a common world in permanent flux and transformation.
--Program note by Antonio Garcia de Leon, edited by Louise K. Stein.
Jordi Savall is an exceptional figure in today's music world. For more than 30 years he has been devoted to the rediscovery of abandoned musical treasures: 30 years of research, reading, and playing them with his viola da gamba or directing them in performance. He has restored an essential repertoire, revived for the enrichment of all music lovers around the world.
With his three ensembles--Hesperion XXI, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and Le Concert des Nations, all founded together with Montserrat Figueras--Jordi Savall has explored and fashioned a universe full of emotions and beauty, and has projected it to the world and to millions of music lovers. He has reintroduced the viola da gamba and musics once thought to be lost to the ages. He is among the most eminent protectors of early music and cultivators of its reinterpretation.
Jordi Savall is among the most multivalent musicians of his generation. His career as a concert performer, teacher, and creator of new musical and cultural projects makes him one of the principal architects of the current revaluation of historical music. With his vital contribution to Alain Corneau's film Tous les Matins du Monde (winner of a Cesar for "Best Soundtrack"), his busy concert life (over
140 concerts a year), and recording schedule (six recordings per year), and with the creation of his own record label Alia Vox, he demonstrates that early music need not be elitist; it is ever more interesting to a growing public that is ever younger and more adventurous.
Jordi Savall studied music from a very young age. He began as a singer in the Children's Choir in Igualada (Catalonia), his hometown, and then he went on to learn the cello, completing his studies in the Barcelona Conservatory (1964). In 1965, as an autodidact, he began to study the viola da gamba and early music (Ars Musicae); he moved on to commence advanced studies in 1968 at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis (Switzerland). There he succeeded his teacher, August Wenzinger, in 1973 and has been teaching in countless courses and offering master classes ever since.
He has recorded over 170 CDs, and has won many awards, among them: Officier de I'Ordre des Arts et Lettres (1988), the Creu de Sant Jordi (1990), "Musician of the Year" from Le Monde de la Musique (1992) and "Soloist of the Year" in the Victoires de la Musique (1993), La Medalla de Oro de las Bellas Artes (1998), Honorary Member of the Konzerthaus in Vienna (1999), Doctor Honoris Causa by the Universite Catholique de Louvain (2000), the Universitat de Barcelona (2006),

and the Universidad d'Evora (2007), Victoire de la Musique for his professional career (2002), the Medalla d'Or of the Parliament of Catalonia (2003), and the Honorary Prize of the Deustchen Schallplattenkritik (2003). He has also won various MIDEM Classical Awards (1999, 2000, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, and 2008). In the 2006 Awards, his double-CD Don Quijote de la Mancha, Romances y Musicas won him a prize in the "Early Music" category, and it was also selected as "2006 Record of the Year." That double-CD was among the five nominees for the 2006 Grammy Awards. In 2008, the CD Cristophorus Columbus--Paraisosperdidos received the Early Music Prize from the MIDEM Classical Awards.
One of his most recent recordings, the book CD Jerusalem, La Ville des deux Paix: La Paix celeste et la Paix terrestre, has been received by the national and international press with great acclaim; it has been awarded the 2009 Orhphee d'Or de I'academie du disque lyrique and the 2008 Caecilia as "Best CD of the Year" as chosen by press and media critics. This book CD was recently awarded the 2010 MIDEM Classical Award.
Last year, Jordi Savall was awarded the 2009 Handelpreis der Stadt Halle (Germany), and received the 2009 National Music Prize from the National Council of Culture and Arts of Catalonia.
In 2008 Jordi Savall was appointed Artist for Peace in the Goodwill Ambassadors program of UNESCO. In 2009 he was named Ambassador for the European Year of Creativity and Innovation by the European Union.
Montserrat Figueras is an outstanding performer in a vast vocal repertoire which spans the medieval, Renaissance, and baroque periods. She was born in Barcelona into a family of music lovers. From a very early age she worked with Enric Gispert and Ars Musicae, and studied singing with Jordi Albareda as well as taking acting courses. In 1966, she began studying early singing techniques, from the troubadours to the baroque, developing a highly individual approach that draws directly on original sources, historical and traditional, unfettered by the influences of the post-Romantic school. In 1967 she joined Jordi Savall as an artistic and life partner in a relationship that has proved particularly fruitful in a range of teaching, research, and creative activities. Working together has left its mark on
UMS Archives
Tonight's concert marks Jordi Savall's third UMS appearance. Mr. Savall most recently appeared under UMS auspices in April 2005 with La Capella Reial and Les Concert des Nations in a program entitled Music and Songs of Love and War presented at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.
Tonight's concert also marks La Capella Reial's third UMS appearance.
Hesperion XXI make their second UMS appearance this evening. The ensemble made their UMS debut (as Hesperion XX) in October 1998 with Mr. Savall and La Capella Reial at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church.

both of them, as is particularly evident in the way they have shaped a particular performing style, featuring both great fidelity to historical sources and a remarkable creative and expressive potential that has influenced the development of the entire early music movement.
In 1968, Ms. Figueras pursued her musical training in Basel (Switzerland) under Kurt Widmer, Andrea von Rahm, and Thomas Binkley at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and the Musikakedemie. During the 1970s, Montserrat Figueras rose to prominence as a leader in a generation of musicians who realised that vocal music before 1800 required a new technical and stylistic approach capable of restoring the beauty and emotion of the voice, the necessary balance between singing and declamation, with an emphasis on the poetic and spiritual dimension of the text.
From 1974-1989, Ms. Figueras was a founding member of the ensembles Hesperion XX, La Capella Reial de Catalunya, and Le Concert des Nations. With them, and also as a soloist, she has set about reclaiming an outstanding and wide-ranging musical heritage. As a result, a wealth o; unjustly forgotten music has been brought bad
to life, notably in her magical performances of the ancient Cant de la Sibilla and the Tonos Humanos by Jose Marin, as well as her more recent Ninna Nanna, the Misteri d'Elx, and Isabel I de Castella and her crucial roles in the CDs Diaspora Sefardi (1999), the Battaglie & Lament' by Monteverdi, Peri, Fontei, and Strozzi (2000), Don Quijote de la Mancha: Romances y Musicas (2005), and Christophorus Columbus. Lost Paradises (2006).
Montserrat Figueras regularly performs in the major festivals of Europe, the US, and the East. The 70-plus CDs that she has recorded have won significant awards including the Grand Prix de I'Academie du Disque Francais, Edison Klasik, Grand Prix de la Nouvelle Academie du Disque, and Grand Prix de I'Academie Charles Cross, as well as Grammy Award nominations in 2001 and 2002, while the French government conferred on her the honorary title Officier de I'ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2003. Her latest recording, Lux Feminae (Alia Vox 2006), devoted to the musical universe of Hispanic women over a continuum ranging from the middle ages to the Renaissance, has been met with unqualified praise from critics at home and abroad.
In 2008 Montserrat Figueras was appointed Artist for the Peace in the Goodwill Ambassadors program of UNESCO.
In Antiquity, Hesperia was the name given to the two most westerly peninsulas in Europe: the Italian and the Iberian Peninsulas. In Classical Greek, Hesperio was used to refer to a person originating from either of the two Peninsulas, and it was also the name given to the planet Venus when it appeared in the western sky at night.
United by a common goal--the study and interpretation of ancient music according to new, modern criteria--and fascinated by the immense richness of the Hispanic and European musical repertoire before 1800, Jordi Savall, Montserrat Figueras, Lorenzo Alpert, and Hopkinson Smith founded the ensemble Hesperion XX in 1974. In its more than 30 years of existence, the group has, in collaboration with other outstanding performers, rescued numerous works and programs from oblivion, thus contributing to a major reappraisal of the fundamental aspects of the medieval, Renaissance, and baroque repertoires. From the moment it was created, Hesperion XX has carried out an intense schedule of concert performances
and regularly appears at the principal international music festivals.
At the beginning of the new millennium, Hesperion XX continues to be a front-line tool for musical research, reflecting the advent of the new century in 2000 by changing its name to Hesperion XXI. The ensemble has been characterized by its eclectic approach to the process of artistic decision-making: as 21 st-century musicians, its members' objectives are grounded in the search for a dynamic synthesis of musical expression, stylistic and historical research, and creative imagination. The fascinating task of reconstructing the rich exuberance of music from other ages, specifically music composed from the 10th to the 18th centuries, has breathed new life into current musical thinking. Thanks to the energy and passionate vocation of its members, Hesperion XXI has conquered the new Europe of nations and extracted the precious ore of its musical traditions. It has toured and harvested the music of Europe, the Middle and the Far East, anc the New World. The ensemble's recordings and live performances have enabled us to rediscover Sepharad through its interpretation of Judaeo-Christian songs, Golden Age Spain, the Madrigals of Monteverdi, and the Creole villancicos of Latin America. Its many CDs, which include Cansos de Trobairitz, El Llibre Vermeil de Montserrat, Diaspora Sefardi, Musica napolitana, Musica en el tiempo de Cervantes, El Barroco Espanol, and Ostinato, as well as the monographic albums devoted to G. Gabrielli, G. Frescobaldi, S. Scheidt, W. Lawes, J. Cabanilles, F. Couperin, and J. S. Bach, and the recent recordings of the music of A. Ferrabosco and music in the age of Queen Isabella I of Castile, are the most eloquent testimony to the wealth of possibilities offered by Hesperion XXI.
Convinced that a country's cultural roots and traditions always have a decisive influence on the expression of its musical language, Jordi Savall and Montserrat Figueras founded La Capella Reial, one of the first vocal ensembles devoted to the interpretation of Hispanic Golden Age music according to historical principles and consisting exclusively of Hispanic and Latin voices, in 1987.
Following the model of the famous "royal chapels" for which the great masterpieces of both religious and secular music were composed
in the Iberian Peninsula, this new "Capella Reial," which in 1990 took the name of Capella Reial de Catalunya, was born as the result of more than 13 years of research and interpretation in the field of early music. Together with Hesperion XX (founded in 1974), its main objective is to extend and deepen the fields of research into the specific characteristics of the Hispanic and European polyphonic vocal legacy before 1800. The hallmark of this ensemble is its approach to performance, which balances meticulous vocal sound quality and appropriateness to the style of the period with expressive diction and projection of the poetic text, always striving above all to convey the spiritual and artistic dimension peculiar to each individual work. Under the direction of Jordi Savall, it has a busy schedule of concert performances and recordings, and regularly takes part in the principal music festivals around the world.
Tembembe is the name of a river, taking form from several tributaries, weaving its way through our rugged Cuernavaca landscapes, and running by our rehearsal venue.
Thus flows our culture, thus flows our work...
The Tembembe Ensamble Continuo vision is to seek out, recreate and share what intimately connects baroque music with traditional music, both Mexican and Latin American. The ensemble achieves this by breaking down historical and imaginary boundaries that have come to separate these worlds over time, thus bringing out fresh new possibilities of appreciation, comprehension, and truly novel interpretations of this flourishing music.
Tembembe Ensamble Continuo
Tembembe has tasked itself with bringing together the music of the Hispanic baroque guitar and the music of Mexican and Latin American contemporary culture. The group explores the similarities between the instruments and the practices of these traditions, presenting all aspects of performance including music, song, and dance, to bring alive the festive spirits of both the Hispanic fandangooi the 17th century and the contemporary traditional fandango. Members of Tembembe, Enrique Barona, Eloy Cruz, and Leopoldo Novoa, are graduates of the National University (UNAM) in Mexico City, and also completed studies at music institutions in Mexico, Colombia, France, and the US. They currently teach at the UNAM, and the Centra Ollin Yoliztli. They organize workshops aimed at reconstructing and interpreting traditional instruments, as well as fandango jam sessions in the Morelos state communities. The Ensemble has been featured at numerous venues in Mexico, the Americas, Europe, and Asia. They have recorded for UDC (Mexico), Sony BMG, Deutsche Harmonia Mundi (Germany), and AliaVox (Spain). They are currently recording their third CD.

Speaking in Tongues
The title refers to a certain impulsive projection of private religious emotion into the public setting of a communal prayer service. Communicants possessed in this way dramatically and spontaneously erupt into soliloquies of streaming, frequently unintelligible, language-like utterance. The practice is associated with Pentecostal churches dominated by charismatic ministers, particularly in the southern United States.

Paul Taylor is the last living member of the pantheon that created America's indigenous art form, modern dance. Now in his 80th year--an age when most artists' best work is be?hind them--Mr. Taylor continues to be acclaimed for the vibrancy, relevance, and power of his cur?rent dances as well as his classics. As prolific as ever, he offers cogent observations on life's com?plexities and society's thorniest issues. He may propel his dancers through space for the sheer beauty of it, or use them to wordlessly illuminate war, spirituality, sexuality, morality, and mortality. If, as Balanchine said, there are no mothers-in-law in ballet, there certainly are dysfunctional families, ex-lovers, fallen preachers, rapists, angels, and in?sects in Taylor dance.
In the 1950s, when his work was so cutting-edge that it could send confused audience mem?bers flocking to the exits, Martha Graham dubbed Mr. Taylor the "naughty boy" of dance. In the 1960s he shocked the cognoscenti by setting his trailblazing movement to music composed 200 years earlier, and inflamed the establishment by lampooning America's most treasured icons. In the 1970s he put incest center stage and revealed the beast lurking just below humans' sophisticated ve?neer. In the 1980s he looked unflinchingly at mari?tal rape and intimacy among men at war. In the 1990s he warned against religious zealotry and blind conformity to authority. In the first decade of the new millennium he has condemned American imperialism, poked fun at feminism, and looked death square in the face. And yet, while his work has largely been iconoclastic, since the very start of his career Mr. Taylor has also made some of the most purely romantic, most astonishingly athletic, and downright funniest dances ever put on stage. People in cities throughout the world have en?joyed live modern dance performances due largely to the far-reaching tours Mr. Taylor pioneered as a virtuoso dancer in the 1950s. Having made his first dance in 1954, he has amassed a growing col?lection of 133 dances performed by his celebrated Company of 16 dancers and the six-member Taylor 2. He has set movement to music so memorably that for many people it is impossible to hear certain orchestral works and popular songs and not think of his dances. He has influenced dozens of men and women who have gone on to create dances or es?tablish their own troupes. He has collaborated with such artists as Robert Rauschenberg, Jasper Johns, Ellsworth Kelly, Alex Katz, Tharon Musser, Thomas
Skelton, Gene Moore, John Rawlings, William Ivey Long, Jennifer Tipton, and Santo Loquasto. As the subject of the documentary Dancemaker and author of the autobiography. Private Domain, and Why I Make Dances, he has shed light on the mysteries of the creative process as few art sts ever have.
Hailed for uncommon musicality and catholic taste, Mr. Taylor has set dances to ragtime, reg?gae, and rock, tango, tin pan alley, and barbershop quartets; works by baroque masters Bach, Boyce, and Handel; and iconoclasts Feldman, Ligeti and Varese; monotonous time announcements, plain?tive loon calls, and hysterical laughter. While he has covered a breathtaking range of topics, recur?ring themes have included the natural world and man's place within it; love and sexuality in every gender combination; life, death, and what may follow; and iconic moments in the history of the nation. His poignant looks at soldiers in battle and those they leave behind caused The New York Times to write in 2009 that he "ranks among the great war poets."
Mr. Taylor was born in 1930 and grew up in and around Washington, DC. He was a swimmer and student of painting at Syracuse University in the late 1940s until he discovered dance, which he began studying at Juillia'd. By 1954 he had assembled a small company of dancers and was making his own works. A commanding performer despite his late start, he joined the Martha Gra?ham Dance Company in 1955 for the first of seven seasons as soloist while continuing to choreograph on his own troupe. In 1959 he danced with New York City Ballet as a guest artist. Having created the slyly funny 3 Epitaphs in 1956, he captivated dancegoers in 1962 with hs virile grace in the landmark Aureole, set cheekily not to contempo?rary music but to a baroque score, as Junction had been the year before. He struck chords again with the apocalyptic Scudorama, intended to be as dark as Aureole was sunny, and the controversial Big Bertha. After retiring as a performer in 1974, Mr Taylor devoted himself fully :o choreography and masterpieces continued to pour forth, including Esplanade, Cloven Kingdom, Dust, Airs, Mercuric Tidings, Le Sacre du Printemps (The Rehearsal), Arden Court, Last Look, Musical Offering, Syzygy, Speaking in Tongues, Company B, Eventide, Piaz-zolla Caldera, Promethean Fire, Banquet of Vul?tures, and Beloved Renegade. He remains among the most sought-after choreographers working today, commissioned by ballet companies and pre-
Paul Taylor
senting organizations the world over.
From its earliest years, the Paul Taylor Dance Company brought modern dance to America's col?lege campuses and small towns as well as its large cultural centers, and in 1960 the Company made its first international tour. It has since performed in more than 520 cities in 62 countries. In 1966 the Paul Taylor Dance Foundation was established to help bring Mr. Taylor's works to the largest possible audience, facilitate the making of new dances, and preserve his repertoire. Since 1968, when Aureole first entered the repertoire of the Royal Danish Bal?let, his works have been licensed for performance by more than 75 companies worldwide. In 1993 Mr. Taylor formed Taylor 2, which brings many of his masterworks to smaller venues around the world. Taylor 2 also teaches modern technique and Taylor style in schools and workplaces, at commu?nity gatherings, and during annual workshops for pre-professional dancers.
In celebration of the Paul Taylor Dance Compa?ny's 50th Anniversary in 2004-05, his works were performed in all 50 US states.
Mr. Taylor has received every important honor given to artists in the US.

The Paul Taylor Dance Company, now in its 56th year, is one of the world's most highly respected and sought-after ensembles.
Dance maker Paul Taylor first presented his choreography with five other dancers in Manhattan on May 30, 1954. That modest performance marked the beginning of a half-century of unrivaled creativity, and in the decades that followed, Mr. Taylor became a cultural icon and one of history's most celebrated artists, hailed as part of the pantheon that created American modern dance.
The Paul Taylor Dance Company and Taylor 2, created in 1993, has traveled the globe many times over, bringing Mr. Taylor's ever-burgeoning repertoire to theaters and venues of every size and description in cultural capitals, on college campuses, and in rural communities--often to places modern dance had never been before. The Taylor Company has performed in more than 520 cities in 62 countries, representing the US at arts festivals in more than 40 countries and touring extensively under the aegis of the US Department of State. In 1997 the Company toured throughout India in celebration of that nation's 50th Anniversary. Its 1999 engagement in Chile was named the "Best International Dance Event" of 1999 by the country's Art Critics' Circle. In the summer of 2001 the Company toured in the People's Republic of China and performed in six cities, four of which had never seen American modern dance before. In the spring of 2003 the Company mounted an award-winning four-week, seven-city tour of the United Kingdom. The Company's performances in China in 2007 marked its fourth tour there.
While continuing to garner international acclaim, the Paul Taylor Dance Company performs more than half of each touring season in cities throughout the US. The Company's New York City Center season in 2005, marking its anniversary, was attended by more than 25,000 people. In celebration of the Anniversary and 50 years of creativity by Paul Taylor, the Taylor Foundation presented Mr. Taylor's works in all 50 US states in 2004-05. That tour underscored the Taylor Company's historic role as one of the early touring companies of American modern dance. The 50th anniversary celebration also featured a quartet of new dances.

Mr. Taylor established Taylor 2 in 1993 to ensure that his works could be seen by audiences all over the world without regard to economic or logistical limitations. He worked with longtime colleague Linda Hodes to create a company that could accommodate performance requests, teach classes, and provide community outreach. With six dancers, Taylor 2 is the same size as Mr. Taylor's original Company. In selecting repertoire for Taylor 2, Mr. Taylor chooses dances that reveal the broad spectrum of his work, sometimes reworking the original version to fit the smaller ensemble. Taylor 2's engagements are flexible and are customized to meet the needs of each community. They often consist of master classes and lecturedemonstrations in addition to performances that often take place in non-traditional venues as well as in theaters. Former Taylor dancer Ruth Andrien was named Rehearsal Director of Taylor 2 in 2010.
UMS's Education Program deepens the relation?ship between audiences and art, while efforts in Community Engagement raise awareness of the positive impact the performing arts and educa?tion can have on the quality of life in our region. The program creates and presents the highest quality arts education and community engage?ment experiences to a broad spectrum of con?stituencies, proceeding in the spirit of partner?ship and collaboration.
In this time of economic challenge, the UMS 1011 education programs "go deeper" with projects that encourage sustained engage?ment 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.
Details about all educational and residency events are posted online approximately one month before the performance date. Join the UMS E-mail Club to have updated event infor?mation sent directly to you. For immediate event info, please e-mail, or call the numbers listed on the following pages.
1011 Season Themes for Educational Programming
PLAY and Creativity... Where is the space for play in our daily lives What role does play have in the artistic and creative process How does play affect child development What can medical practice, the business world, and other professional sectors learn from play
Stories and Storytellers... Each season at UMS tells a unique story, and the 1011 season in particular provides some unique narratives in connection to performances. Join us as we explore the stories of the UMS season through a variety of programs.
Americas and Americans... The 1011 season features artists and art forms from the broadest possible definition of "America." This begs the question, "Who is America" and why are some of these artists or art forms considered uniquely American A series of pro?grams will explore these questions and pose others about American identity in the performing arts.

Raising money to support UMS Education Programs is another major goal of the Advisory Committee. The major fundraising events are:
Ford Honors Program and Gala. Each year, UMS honors an artist andor company with the Distinguished Artist Award prior to their performance. Included in the evening is a Gala Dinner, reception, andor afterglow with the artist(s) in attendance.
On the Road with UMS. Held in September, more than 300 guests enjoy an evening of food, entertainment, and silent and live auctions.
Delicious Experiences These special events are hosted by individuals and local businesses. The hosts determine the theme for the evening, the menu, and the number of guests they would like to entertain.
For more information on events being planned for this season, or if you are interested in joining the Advisory Committee, please call 734.647.8009.

UMS has been able to present world-class performances and programs for 132 years because of the loyalty of our donors, many of whom have made multiple gifts to the organization over a number of years. In particular, there are several individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agencies that have provided significant leadership support to the organization over time, enabling UMS to engage more audience members, provide education programs, and expand our offerings. We recognize here those donors whose cumulative giving to UMS totals $500,000 or more.

The cost of presenting world-class performances and educational programs exceeds the revenue UMS receives from ticket sales. The difference is made up through the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, and government agen?cies. The following list includes donors who made gifts to UMS between July 1, 2009 and August 1, 2010. Due to space constraints, we can only list in the UMS program book those who donated $250 or more.
