For some, dance can seem like a mystery. For others, dance unlocks sights, sounds, ideas, and emotions unlike any other art form. How do you experience dance? On the heels of last seasonÕs popular UMS Night School: Bodies in Motion series, this yearÕs edition of Night School continues to explore dance. Both newcomers and dance aficionados alike are invited to build knowledge about dance and meet others who share an interest in the art form.
Hosted by Clare Croft, assistant professor of dance at the University of Michigan, these 90-minute ÒclassesÓ combine conversation, interactive exercises, and ÒlecturesÓ to draw you into the themes related to dance. Drop in to just one session, or attend them all. Events are free, and no pre-registration is required. Complete details available at www.ums.org/learn.

UMS

CAN
TRADITION
BUILD
THE
FUTURE?

WINTER 2015

At UMS, we believe it can. In our 136th season, we continue to showcase traditional performances alongside contemporary artists for an offering that is unlike anything available in the Midwest. UMS grew from a group of local members of the University and townspeople in the 1870s who gathered together for the study of HandelÕs Messiah. Led by Professor Henry Simmons Frieze and conducted by Professor Calvin Cady, the group assumed the name The Choral Union. Many Choral Union members were also affiliated with the University, and the University Musical Society was established soon after in December 1880.
Since that first season, UMS has expanded greatly and we now present the very best from a wide spectrum of the performing arts: internationally renowned recitalists and orchestras, dance and chamber ensembles, jazz and global music performers, and contemporary stagework and classical theater. Through educational programming, the commissioning of new works, youth programs, artist residencies, and collaborative projects, we continue to strengthen our reputation for artistic distinction and innovation.

THE
EXPERIENCE.

GETTING THE MOST
OUT OF THE PERFORMANCE
We know that people enjoy the performance experience in different ways, so we encourage you to think about making choices when you enter the venue that allow you to be present, leave the worries of the day outside, and prepare to receive what the experience holds in store.
Be aware of your surroundings. Connect with the artist or ensemble. What they have to share is a very special gift that comes from a lifetime of training. One of the joys of attending live performances is the ability to share our experiences with one another, so revel in your opportunity to socialize, talk to your friends, discuss the performance, or simply say ÒhelloÓ to someone new. Feel the energy that a room full of people creates. Look around and take in the entire picture. What goes on in this venue and in this community is truly unique and special, and we must all cherish and protect it.

PLEASE CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING:
Turn off cell phones and electronic devices. We all know how terrible it is when a phone rings during a performance. It breaks that special bond between a performer and the audience. Illuminated screens on phones are also a visual distraction in a darkened theater.
Our volunteer ushers are invaluable. They will show you to your seat, give you a program, help solve any problem, answer questions, and welcome you to the experience. Please do not hesitate to ask them for help.
Wear what you want to the performance Ñ this is Ann Arbor, after all! If you feel inspired to dress in some way related to the show, go for it. Express your own creativity.
Unwrapping candies and cough drops before the performance begins cuts down on disruptive noise while the performance is in progress.
Think about whether it is necessary to wear your favorite perfume to the performance. Chances are that the folks sitting around you may appreciate
an unscented experience.
The Good News: most of our performance spaces have world-class acoustics. The Bad News: that means that when you cough or sneeze you make an especially clear statement to fellow audience members and performers alike. Feel free to ask an usher for cough drops when you arrive at a UMS Choral Union Series event and please consider bringing cough drops with you to our other events. ItÕs noisy even if you cover your mouth!
Thankfully, we manage to keep last-minute changes to a minimum, but please remember that all artists and programs are subject to change at a momentÕs notice.
Programs with larger print are available. Ask an usher.
We make every effort to begin performances on time. The actual start time of a performance always reflects a combination of considerations. Late seating is not guaranteed. If you arrive after a performance has begun, we will seat you if there is an appropriate late seating break in the program. We work together with the artists to determine late seating breaks that will not disrupt their performance or the experience of the audience.

ARTEMIS QUARTET

NOW THAT YOUÕRE IN YOUR SEATÉ

The two great Slavic composers of the 19th century, Dvorù‡k and Tchaikovsky, born only a year apart, formed something of a mutual admiration society. They first met when Tchaikovsky came to Prague for performances of his Eugene Onegin in 1888, and subsequently invited his Czech colleague to Russia to give some concerts. According to a 1996 study, Dvorù‡kÕs Eighth Symphony may be considered a direct response to TchaikovskyÕs Fifth. Temperamentally quite different, the two composers nevertheless shared a fondness for folksong, and each showed the way how genres like the symphony or the string quartet, until then considered predominantly ÒGermanicÓ art forms, could transcend national boundaries. The two classics are complemented by a work by Peøteris Vasks of Latvia, one of the most highly regarded contemporary composers from Eastern Europe, who, in an interview, credited the tragic history of his part of the world with providing Òa terrific impulse to be creative, to express our emotions.Ó

String Quartet in F Major, Op. 96
(.American.) (1893)
Anton’n Dvorù‡k
Born September 8, 1841 in Nelahozeves,
Czech Republic
Died May 1, 1904 in Prague
UMS premiere: Kneisel Quartette, January 15, 1904 in University Hall.

Written in 1893, Dvorù‡kÕs ÒAmericanÓ Quartet is the work of a composer who undertakes his most extended voyage at a mature age. A new environment had a direct influence on the evolution of the composerÕs style: Dvorù‡k responded to the new musical idioms he came into contact with.
From 1892Ð1895, Dvorù‡k served as the director of the National Conservatory of Music in New York. He spent the summer vacation of 1893 in Spillville, Iowa, a village that was home to a sizable Czech community. Dvorù‡k obviously went there to be in the company of his own fellow country people, but at the same time he was very interested in whatever he could learn about American traditional music. He felt that his mission in America was to help create a distinctly American style of musical composition and he was convinced that American art music had to be based on the countryÕs folk music. He wanted to get to know Negro spirituals and his student Harry T. Burleigh was of great help in this endeavor. In addition, he attended a performance of Native American songs and dances during his stay in Iowa. Traces of these experiences Ñand others, since the third movement contains the near-quote of a birdsong Dvorù‡k had heard at Spillville Ñmay be found in his ÒAmericanÓ Quartet. The most recognizable folk element is the use of the pentatonic scale, used in all the most important melodies of the work. Yet pentatonicism could also be found in European folk traditions and was present in Dvorù‡kÕs music before the American trip. (As an interesting coincidence, a younger contemporary that Dvorù‡k would never have heard of, a Frenchman by the name of Claude Debussy, wrote his own string quartet [that also famously uses pentatonicism] in the very same year, 1893.)
What makes the ÒAmericanÓ Quartet a masterpiece is the fact that Dvorù‡k was able to express himself perfectly through the use of the pentatonic idiom adopted from outside sources. Although the melodies are fairly simple, they were subjected to some fairly sophisticated thematic development. The accompaniments (whether figurative or contrapuntal) show great care and extreme variety, as does the planning of key changes to avoid the commonplace. In other words, Dvorù‡k assimilated the folk-inspired materials into the art-music idiom he had inherited from Beethoven, Schubert, and Brahms, and in this sense, the ÒAmericanÓ Quartet is a thoroughly ÒEuropeanÓ creation.
Dvorù‡k was one of the last composers to speak with an individual voice while using the conventional forms of the Romantic era. In this sense, his work stands at the end of that Òage of innocenceÓ in music where there was as yet no gulf whatsoever between artists and their audiences.

The score of Peøteris VasksÕ Quartet
No. 5 contains the following introduction by the composer (as translated from the Latvian by Dace Aperane):
I worked on the Fifth String Quartet, or more precisely, lived with this work for almost all of 2003. The final corrections and details were completed in the spring of 2004.
In this composition I wished to communicate how we are each a part of the world and a world unto ourselves, of the existence and necessity of idealism and the love around us and in us.
I was involved in the creative process not as an observer on the sidelines, but as a present and committed participant.
The Fifth Quartet consists of two contrasting movements. The first movement [ÒklaøtbuøtneÓ (Being present)] immediately ushers in an atmosphere of emotional high tension. The dominant musical atmospheric elements are dramatic and turbulent. They replace one another kaleidoscopically. In contrast, a second theme is intoned three times Ñ an invitation, a reminder of the existence of some other world. A lighthouse illuminating the twilight in which we so often live.
The second movement [Òtaølu prom...tik tuvuÓ (So distant...yet so near)]: the quartetÕs quiet, unhurried passage of singing; a forgiving, love-filled gaze upon a world tormented by pain and contradictions.
Gradually the singing becomes more personal, emotional, and dramatic. The funeral marchÕs rhythmic figure in the second movementÕs reprise: a gesture concerning a certain loss; the quartet dies away in a mood of light-filled sorrow.
One cycle has ended. We continue
to live.
The Fifth Quartet is dedicated to the musicians of the Kronos Quartet Ñ my friends and like-minded colleagues.
We believe: music can change us for the better and make us happier.

Tchaikovsky is essentially a composer best known for large musical forces and grand dramatic gestures: orchestral music, opera, and ballet. He had no strong personal affinity for chamber music though his output was not negligible: three string quartets, a piano trio, a string sextet, and miscellaneous works for violin and piano. Despite many wonderful moments, his chamber music as a whole is not held in high esteem by many of the cognoscenti for various reasons: weakness of form, unbalanced texture, inconsistency, and tendency to exceed the constraints of chamber music with grand, dramatic gestures best designed for large musical forces. There is one unequivocal exception: TchaikovskyÕs String Quartet in D Major, Op. 11. Even the stalwart critics acknowledge that it is a fine work, if not startlingly so, given that it was TchaikovskyÕs first chamber composition and it showed a complete technical mastery that he was unable to match again. Consistently appreciated since its debut, the quartet enjoys significant fame: it is the first noteworthy work of Russian chamber music, (the first great string quartet before Borodin), it contains one of Classical musicÕs greatest hits, and, according to TchaikovskyÕs own diary, it moved Tolstoy to tears.
The quartet begins with a well-crafted sonata with several noteworthy features. The opening theme is played by the quartet, softly, in unison, syncopated within the unusual meter of 9/8. (Just try counting it!) Melvin Berger indicates that these opening chords gave rise to an apt nickname for the quartet, ÒThe Accordion.Ó Next, the unity of the quartet divides into a multiplicity of flowing, contrapuntal lines with shorter, quicker notes in an exciting departure into greater complexity. The ensemble joins together again to sing the second theme in simple unity only to split again into a luxurious flurry of ornamentation. The development gives full flight to the contrapuntal lines, bringing them to the foreground against the background of the original syncopated theme sped up as a pulsating accompaniment. A wonderfully dense but crystal clear texture reaches a climax before the return of opening material. A brilliant coda maximizes the long line of acceleration culminating with an extended sequence of rapid D-Major chords, the original syncopated rhythm pushed as fast as the music allows.
With the poignant second movement ÒAndante cantabile,Ó Tchaikovsky penned the first of his many greatest hits, the particular part of the quartet that so moved Tolstoy. The main theme is based on a folksong that Tchaikovsky heard a gardener sing while visiting his sister in the Ukraine two years earlier. The music alternates between the folk theme and a contrasting section of TchaikovskyÕs own inspiration that is instantly recognizable as within the vein of his most characteristic style. This lovely little dream has been transcribed for numerous instrumental combinations as a separate, standalone piece including a version Tchaikovsky arranged for cello and orchestra. The .Scherzo. matches the heartfelt folk song of the slow movement with a vigorous peasant dance. It is heavy with unison playing, sharp rhythmic accents, strong dynamics, and the stout severity of a minor key. The trio is a curious combination of frivolity and ponderous chromaticism that, in standard form, returns to the animated .Scherzo.. With both movements, Tchaikovsky displays a nationalistic bent contrary to the view held by later Russian composers who disdained him as too cosmopolitan.
The .Finale. is a combination of sonata and rondo form full of bristling vigor, wonderful quartet textures, unmistakable touches of TchaikovskyÕs lyrical drama, and tinged, in parts, with a distinctly Russian cast. It is one of the finest chamber music movements he wrote. With its poise, balance, and concision, it is utterly classical in the true sense of the word. In fact, it is oddly reminiscent. Despite the definite mark of TchaikovskyÕs personality, it bears a striking and detailed resemblance to the string quartet music of TchaikovskyÕs greatest musical idol: Mozart. Writing such a piece in 1871, Tchaikovsky could well be considered one of the first neoclassicists, though, in place of any modernist irony, Tchaikovsky expresses only affectionate sincerity.

ARTISTS

The Berlin-based ARTEMIS QUARTET was founded in 1989 at the Musikhochschule LŸbeck, and is recognized today as one of the foremost quartets in the world. Its mentors include Walter Levin, Alfred Brendel, the Alban Berg Quartet, the Juilliard Quartet, and the Emerson Quartet. Since its successful debut at the Berlin Philharmonie in 1999, the quartet has performed consistently in great music centers and at international festivals in Europe, the US, Japan, South America, and Australia.
Since 2004, the Artemis Quartet has been programming its own critically renowned series in the Berlin Philharmonie. It was named Quartet-in-Residence at the Vienna Konzerthaus in 2011.
In 2009, celebrating its 20th anniversary, along with its affinity for BeethovenÕs music, the Quartet embarked on a Beethoven cycle which was performed over two seasons in many major capitols of Europe. The project culminated in a recording of the complete quartets with Virgin Classics/EMI. The Beethoven Complete project was awarded the prestigious French Grand Prix de lÕAcadŽmie Charles Cros.
Collaborations with other musicians have always been an important source of inspiration for the ensemble. The quartet has toured with such personalities as Sabine Meyer, Elisabeth Leonskaya, Juliane Banse, and Jšrg Widmann. Some collaborations have been documented on CDs, such as the Brahms and Schubert piano quintets with Leif Ove Andsnes, the Schubert quintet with Truls M¿rk, and SchoenbergÕs VerklŠrte Nacht with Thomas Kakuska and Valentin Erben of the Alban Berg Quartet.
The Artemis Quartet has had an exclusive recording contract with Virgin Classics/EMI since 2005, and they can boast of an extensive discography. Their recordings have been recognized with the prestigious Gramophone Award, the Diapason dÕOr, and the ECHO-Klassik, twice.
A focus on contemporary music is an important part of the ensembleÕs work, in part because they wish to keep developing an eye for new elements in already well-established music. Composers such as Mauricio Sotelo, Jšrg Widmann, and Thomas Larcher have written pieces for the Artemis Quartet within the last 10 years. Recently, they premiered a concerto for quartet and orchestra by Daniel Schnyder in 2014.
In addition to their concert careers, the four musicians are professors at the UniversitŠt der KŸnste in Berlin and at the Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth in Brussels.

CINDERELLA, which received its world premiere at the OpŽra of Lyon in 1985, was first seen in the US in 1987 when the Lyon Opera Ballet made its American debut at City Center in New York City. The ballet, which presents a radical retelling of the classic fairy tale, is set in a dollhouse and performed by dancers whose bodies are disguised to resemble dolls and whose faces are hidden behind doll-like masks. It is a world seen through the innocent eyes and incandescent imagination of a child. MarinÕs stunning and magical transformation of the ballet into an undefined time in the future, or perhaps past, universalizes the underlying themes of cruelty, sibling rivalry, jealousy, romantic and familial love, and compassion, giving them new wit and an enduring sense of timelessness.
Prokofiev began composing Cinderella in 1940 but the war intervened. Later the ballet was put aside in the interests of his opera, War and Peace. He did not take it up again until 1943, during a six-month sojourn in the Urals in the company of the Kirov artists who had been evacuated from Leningrad. Completed in 1944, the work was first performed in 1945 at the Bolshoi in Moscow. Cinderella is an entire evening ballet-spectacle in the fashion of Romeo and Juliette.
At the heart of the extravaganza lie ProkofievÕs original and unique contributions. The fairiesÕ four seasons sequences are musically very individualized: indestructible spring, the hot fullness of summer, the thorny aggressiveness of autumn, and the rhythmic balance and melodic undulation of winter.
The composer also sought simplicity and clarity to render the ballet accessible to the broadest possible appeal. The music responds, at the highest level, to the needs of dance in the manner of TchaikovskyÕs ballets.

ARTISTS

Born in Athens, YORGOS LOUKOS (artistic director) studied in Paris with Igor Foska, Boris Kniaseff, and Raymond Franchetti. He also studied philosophy at the University in Aix-en-Provence. Between 1972Ð1980 he danced successively at the ThŽ‰tre du Silence, the Zurich Opera, and the Ballet national de Marseille where he became, in 1980, Assistant to Roland Petit (reviving Carmen for the American Ballet Theatre and LÕArlŽsienne for the London Festival Ballet).
After a period at the Metropolitan Opera of New York, he joined the Lyon Opera Ballet at the invitation of Franoise Adret, first as ballet master (1985) before becoming co-director (1988), and finally artistic director when Franoise Adret left in 1991.
The Lyon Opera Ballet has received numerous choreographers both directing world creations and adding others to the CompanyÕs repertoire.
With numerous tours both in France and abroad, the company has become the city of LyonÕs worldwide ambassador.
Mr. Loukos was the curator of France Moves, the French dance festival in New York, held in May 2001 in collaboration with many of New York CityÕs theaters, and he then led a similar event in London in Fall 2005. He has also been director of the Festival of Dance in Cannes (1992Ð2009), and has been the director of the Athens and Epidaurus Festival since 2006.
Founded in 1969, LYON OPERA BALLET is known for its experimental and adventurous repertoire. Under the leadership of Yorgos Loukos, the company has commissioned works from young choreographers and performed productions of great classics, among them new versions of Cinderella and CoppŽlia by Maguy Marin and a new interpretation of Romeo and Juliet by Angelin Preljocaj. The classically trained dance company also presents works by highly regarded American choreographers such as Trisha Brown, Lucinda Childs, John Jasperse, Bill T. Jones, Stephen Petronio, Ralph Lemon, and Susan Marshall. The company has continued to tour worldwide since 1987 with ongoing success.

MAGUY MARIN was born in Toulouse, the daughter of Spanish immigrants. She began her dance studies at the age of eight at the Toulouse Conservatory. At 16, after winning the ConservatoryÕs highest honor, she studied in Paris for a year with the ballerina Nina Vyroubova. From 1969Ð72, she was member of the Strasbourg Opera, dancing as a soloist in such classical ballets as Swan Lake and Giselle. In 1972, Ms. Marin enrolled at Maurice BŽjartÕs Mudra, the Brussels- based dance and theater school, where she became a founding member of the group named Chandra, directed by Micha Van Hoecke.
After years spent at the Centre ChorŽgraphique National in Rillieux-la-Pape, the need arose for a fresh step, in the form of an independent company. Permanent working space for a company arose in Sainte-Foy-ls-Lyon in 2015 which will allow Ms. Marin to foster and trigger the deployment of a new, ambitious project in cooperation with her current artistic team, named ramdam.
In her recent shows, Maguy Marin has been staging daily life, dramatizing the everyday gestures of people without stories, while uniquely reflecting the human condition.

BE PRESENT

NOW THAT YOUÕRE IN YOUR SEATÉ

Mozart, Beethoven, Schumann, Brahms, and Debussy Ñ all five were trained as pianists, even if SchumannÕs performing career was destroyed by a hand injury early in life. Yet they all had an extremely intimate relationship with the keyboard. Not only did they compose prolifically for the piano, they also contributed significantly to the evolution of piano technique. For this afternoonÕs program, Richard Goode selected works highlighting the lyrical side of these masters: in each work, the piano is made to sing, and Ñ in spite of more dynamic or more dance-like moments, especially in Debussy and Schumann Ñ gentle or contemplative moods prevail over more turbulent or dramatic ones. Spanning 120 years of musical history, the five works also speak volumes about the myriad ways the piano can sing or express lyrical emotions.

Adagio in b minor, K. 540 (1788)
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
Born January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, Austria
Died December 5, 1791 in Vienna
UMS premiere: Tina Lerner, February 28, 1913 in University Hall.

Â¥
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in Vienna, completes his penultimate symphony, now called Symphony No. 40 in g minor

The first chord in the b-minor Adagio is a diminished seventh, the harshest dissonance classical music allows. That ominous opening ushers in one of MozartÕs most harmonically adventurous and emotionally profound works. In spite of the presence of regular sonata form, the work sounds more like a fantasy, as Hermann Abert noted in his two-volume Mozart monograph almost 100 years ago. The numerous hand-crossings enhance the unfolding drama through an additional visual element. It is interesting that this is also the only self-standing work Mozart ever composed in the key of b minor, a tonality he usually avoided. (HaydnÕs few extant works in that key indicate that b minor was considered to be a particularly sensitive key in the 18th century.)

Sonata No. 24 in F-sharp Major,
Op. 78 (1809)
Ludwig van Beethoven
Born December 15, 1770 in Bonn, Germany
Died March 26, 1827 in Vienna
UMS premiere: Alec Templeton,
February 25, 1943 in Hill Auditorium.

Op. 78 was one of BeethovenÕs special favorites, perhaps because in its subtlety and modest dimensions it was easily overlooked, much as he explained the lesser popularity of Symphony No. 8 compared to Symphony No. 7 by saying that it was because Symphony No. 8 was so much better. Another reason was its dedication to and association with Therese von Brunsvik, a woman of whom Beethoven was deeply fond and who greatly valued him as man and artist. Beethoven composed Op. 78 in 1809, the year of the Emperor Concerto; the String Quartet in E-flat, Op. 74; and of two more amazingly divergent piano sonatas, the little Sonata in G Major, Op. 79; and the famous Farewell, Op. 81a. It was written while NapoleonÕs armies were attempting to take over Vienna. Beethoven found refuge in his brotherÕs cellar, after which he slipped into a depression, but he was able to work through his emotional turmoil with this composition.
Op. 78, a two-movement work that takes less than 10 minutes to play, is an example of an originality that is breathtaking, and the more so for seeming so off-hand. The Beethoven who reveled in gigantic dimensions gives us an ÒAdagioÓ introduction that is just four bars long. But how these few seconds of utterly simple music bare the soul, and how mercilessly they reveal what the pianist has Ñ or lacks Ñ in spirituality and singing tone! The gentle ÒAllegroÓ that follows is no less compact. At the same time it is full of adventure, and BeethovenÕs sweet dismemberment of the main theme in the coda produces mysteries of the kind we associate with the music of his last years. The finale is quick, capricious, virtuosic, and witty.

8 KlavierstŸcke (Eight Piano
Pieces), Op. 76 (1871/1879)
Johannes Brahms
Born May 7, 1833 in Hamburg, Germany
Died April 3, 1897 in Vienna, Austria
UMS premiere: 8 KlavierstŸcke has never been performed on a UMS recital.

Â¥

These pieces are, perhaps, not quite as well known than the later works from
Opp. 116Ð119, yet what is commonly called BrahmsÕs late piano style, famous for its intimacy and delicate feeling, was actually born here. The Op. 76 set was published in 1879, falling between such extroverted, monumental masterworks as the Violin Concerto (1878) or the Piano Concerto
No. 2 (1881). But the individual pieces may in fact have been written several years earlier. There is a manuscript of the first capriccio, inscribed to Clara Schumann on September 12, 1871 (the 31st anniversary of Robert and Clara SchumannÕs wedding; ClaraÕs 52nd birthday fell on the following day). The a-minor intermezzo (No. 7) is connected to another of BrahmsÕs friends, the pianist Elisabet von Herzogenberg, who heard Brahms play it before the set was published, notated it rather accurately from memory, and sent it back to the composer, adding some words to it as if it were a song. The words read: ÒHave pity on poor me and send me the longed-for intermezzi....Ó

It was in the Op. 76 set that Brahms first established the alternation of intermezzos and capriccios to which he was to return a dozen years later, during the final years of his life. It was here, in fact, that first articulated his answer to the short character pieces of Schumann and Chopin: these are his first piano works that are neither monumental sonatas, variation sets, nor dramatic ballads.
Four of the eight pieces are intermezzos and the other four capriccios Ñ the former being, as a rule, more lyrical and fluid while the latter contain more rhythmic activity and are, in general, more virtuosic in style. The playful second capriccio (in b minor) stands out as one of the most memorable in the cycle; the fifth piece (Capriccio in c-sharp minor) is the weightiest of the pieces, the center of gravity of the entire opus, as it were. Each of the intermezzos is based on a certain type of rhythmic motion maintained throughout the piece. Although most of the pieces are cast in A-B-A form, the ÒBÓ sections do not contrast sharply with the ÒAÓ materials as they do, for instance, in many Chopin nocturnes; instead, they evolve naturally from the earlier sections, developing the same musical ideas in new ways rather than introducing entirely new ones.
Upon completing the eight pieces, Brahms showed them to one of his closest friends, Theodor Billroth, a famous surgeon and amateur musician who declared: ÒThese are magnificent pieces, beautiful and interesting to play. They lie so well under the hand for those who are a little used to SchumannÕs and ChopinÕs technique that it is a pleasure to practice them.Ó

ChildrenÕs Corner (1906Ð08)
Claude Debussy
Born August 22, 1862 in Saint-Germain-en
Laye, nr. Paris, France
Died March 25, 1918 in Paris
UMS premiere: Alfred Cortot, January 28, 1925 in Hill Auditorium.

One of the greatest compositions ever inspired by a child, the six-movement piano suite ChildrenÕs Corner was DebussyÕs gift to his young daughter Claude-Emma, affectionately known as Chouchou. It was published in 1908, the year when DebussyÕs family situation, at the time seen as highly unconventional, was finally normalized; he finally married ChouchouÕs mother, Emma Bardac, that same year, after their respective divorces were completed.
Like many French children of the middle class, Chouchou had an English governess to introduce her to the language Ñ hence the playful English-language titles used by her doting father in the music specifically intended for her ears. Debussy looked at the world of the child with grown-up eyes, yet produced musical images that a child can immediately relate to Ñ maybe not at the age of three but certainly by five or six, when the child is old enough to start studying the piano but still young enough to play with dolls.
The first piece addresses itself to the young piano student tormented by the healthy but somewhat tedious etudes of Muzio Clementi or Carl Czerny, both of whom wrote collections of piano studies under the title Gradus ad Parnassum (Steps to Mt. Parnassus). That would make ÒDoctor Gradus ad ParnassumÓ the stern professor enforcing the strict technical regimen set forth in those books Ñ here with an impish smile, however, as the steady 16th-note passages take some rather unexpected harmonic turns and becomes an exercise that is far from tedious, though it is still healthy for the young pianistÕs fingers.
Jimbo the elephant and the little doll were toys little Chouchou played with. They come alive in the next two movements of DebussyÕs suite: ÒJimboÕs Lullaby,Ó where the melody is appropriately in the bass register of the piano; and the ÒSerenade for the Doll,Ó a tender dance movement with occasional jazz inflections, written two years before the rest of the cycle in 1906.
Of the fourth movement, ÒThe Snow is Dancing,Ó E. Robert Schmitz, a French pianist who had known Debussy personally, wrote: ÒIn this exquisitely fashioned piece Debussy reflects more than the snow, or the astonishment of the child at this wonder of nature; he places his craftsmanship at the disposal of his own deep understanding of both nature and childhood.Ó The staccato (short, separated) notes of the piano represent the falling snowflakes, and the Òsoft and sadÓ melodies that unfold over this accompaniment portray the young observer behind the windowpanes.
The unaccompanied opening theme of ÒThe Little ShepherdÓ symbolizes the sound of the shepherdÕs pipe, alternating with a more dance-like idea, complete with some simple but exquisite harmonies. Finally, ÒGolliwoggÕs Cake-walkÓ pays tribute to the American minstrel shows that were all the rage in Paris at the turn of the century. Golliwogg was a black doll created by artist Florence Upton in the 1890s that became wildly popular; it inspired Debussy to write a brilliant send-up of ragtime music, with a rather amusing, and wonderfully incongruous, quote of WagnerÕs ÒPreludeÓ to Tristan and Isolde in the middle. Debussy must have remembered the Tristan Quadrille (Souvenir de Munich) by an idol of his youth, Emmanuel Chabrier, who had likewise placed this icon of high-brow musical culture in a rather irreverent context.

Humoreske, Op. 20 (1839)
Robert Schumann
Born June 8, 1810 in Zwickau, Saxony
Died July 29, 1856 in Endenich, nr. Bonn, Germany
UMS premiere: Grant Johannesen, as part of the Summer Fare Series, July 18, 1980 in Rackham Auditorium.

The word ÒhumorÓ is one whose meaning has changed repeatedly over the centuries. Nowadays, it stands for language or behavior that inspires laughter. Originally, however, the four ÒhumorsÓ of the human body were the four fluids (black bile, yellow bile, phlegm, and blood) whose balance was believed to be responsible for our health. Later on, ÒhumorÓ became a synonym of Òmood,Ó as in being in good or bad humor. Then, in a laudable example of positive thinking, Ògood humorÓ was shortened simply to Òhumor,Ó and since there is nothing like a joke to put you in a good mood, the word became more specifically associated with hilarity.
When Schumann wrote his Humoreske for piano (he actually called it Grosse Humoreske, Ògreat humoresqueÓ), he still had the earlier, broader meaning of the word in mind. To be sure, the work has its share of funny moments: for instance, the first fast section of the work always makes me want to laugh out loud for the way it repeats fragments of its melody at the most unexpected times. But this is only one of this workÕs many moods, and the title refers precisely to the utterly capricious alternation of those moods. And Òhumor,Ó in this instance, was a very serious matter indeed: Schumann got the idea for the piece from a philosophical treatise called Vorschule der €sthetik (School for Aesthetics) by his favorite writer, Jean Paul (1763Ð1825), a master of humor in every sense of the word. In his great Schumann monograph, the late John Daverio identified the passages from Jean Paul that are most directly applicable to Humoreske: an Òinfinity of contrastÓ and a Òsetting of the small world beside the great,Ó resulting in Òa kind of laughter...which contains pain and greatness.Ó In other words, the sharp contrasts may have a comical effect in themselves, but that takes nothing away from the poignancy of the melancholy (the word means Òblack bileÓ) episodes.
The Humoreske, which is nearly half-an-hour long, is one of several extended cyclic works Schumann wrote in the 1830s, from DavidsbŸndlertŠnze to Carnaval to Kreisleriana. It is probably the most complex and ambitious of them all, because of the subtle interplays of the constituent segments, with many internal motivic recalls. It is not even easy to say how many such segments the work contains: Daverio counted 15, but different CD recordings often divide the piece into a different number of tracks. Some of the mood changes are arranged in recurrent A-B-A forms, but the overall shape of the work remains entirely unpredictable. Still, the work is unified by its main tonality (B-flat Major), and with hindsight, one may reconstruct its overall trajectory from a dreamy and lyrical opening to a similarly wistful epilogue (though with a surprisingly tempestuous final gesture tacked on at the very end). In between, it is a kaleidoscope of ever-changing musical images. Those studying the score will find some highly revealing indications. At one point, one finds as an explicit direction for tempo rubato (the left and right hands being slightly out of sync, indicated as Òin tempoÓ and Òout of tempoÓ). Another time Schumann notates an Òinner voiceÓ on a third staff; this line, which is not played, shows the melody emerging from the figurations. For the listener, it is another fascinating dialog between the two aspects of SchumannÕs persona: the gentle Eusebius and the fiery Florestan, each expressing himself with greater eloquence and sophistication than ever before.

ARTIST

RICHARD GOODE has been hailed for music-making of tremendous emotional power, depth, and expressiveness, and has been acknowledged worldwide as one of todayÕs leading interpreters of Classical and Romantic music. In performances with major orchestras, recitals in the worldÕs music capitals, and through his extensive and acclaimed recordings, he has won a large and devoted following.
Among the highlights of recent seasons have been recitals in which, for the first time in his career, Mr. Goode performed the last three Beethoven Sonatas in one program, drawing capacity audiences and raves in cities such as New York, London, and Berlin. The New York Times, in reviewing his Carnegie Hall performance,Êhailed his interpretations asÊÒmajestic, profound readingsÉ Mr.ÊGoodeÕs playing throughout was organic and inspired, the noble, introspective themes unfolding with a simplicity that rendered them all the more moving.ÓÊRecent seasons have also included performances with the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra led by Fabio Luisi at Carnegie Hall; with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and Gustavo Dudamel; with Orpheus on tour and at Carnegie Hall playing the Schumann Concerto; and on tour with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
An exclusive Nonesuch recording artist, Mr. Goode has made more than two dozen recordings over the years, ranging from solo and chamber works to lieder and concertos. His latest recording of the five Beethoven concertos with the Budapest Festival Orchestra and Iv‡n Fischer was released in 2009 to exceptional critical acclaim, described as Òa landmark recordingÓ by the Financial Times and nominated for a Grammy Award. His 10-CD set of the complete Beethoven Sonatas cycle, the first-ever by an American-born pianist, was nominated for another Grammy Award, and is ranked among the most distinguished recordings of this repertoire.
A native of New York, Mr. Goode studied at the Mannes College of Music and the Curtis Institute. His numerous prizes over the years include the Young Concert Artists Award, First Prize in the Clara Haskil Competition, the Avery Fisher Prize, and a Grammy Award for his recording of the Brahms Sonatas with clarinetist Richard Stoltzman.
Mr. Goode served, together with Mitsuko Uchida, as co-artistic director of the Marlboro Music School and Festival in Marlboro, Vermont from 1999Ð2013. Participating initially at the age of 14, at what the New Yorker magazine recently described as Òthe classical worldÕs most coveted retreat,Ó he has made a notable contribution to this unique community over the 28 summers he has spent there. He is married to the violinist Marcia Weinfeld, and when the Goodes are not on tour, they and their collection of some 5,000 volumes live in New York City.
