Tradition

the
Future

FA L L 2 0 1 5

In our 137th 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 Handel’s 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 now presents 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 arts have made a significant difference in my life and
my daughter’s life. I want every U-M student to have the
opportunity to experience the impact of the performing arts
at UMS. This is why I am offering every first and second year
student one free ticket — Bert’s Ticket — to introduce them to
a cultural experience at Michigan.”

DAL L AS AN D SH ARON DORT
“It could almost be said that we chose to move to Ann Arbor
post-career because of UMS. Who wouldn’t want to live in a
city that can attract such talent, and fill a 3,500-seat hall with
so many enthusiastic audiences? Now, we enjoy each season
all the more because, as donors, we’re an active part of UMS.
What a privilege!”

fostering a lifelong love of the performing arts. Our donation

Medal of Arts from
President Barack Obama
at the White House. We
are deeply honored to be
the first university-based
presenter to receive this
recognition, which is the
highest award given to
artists and arts patrons by
the US government. Please
accept our sincerest thanks
for your participation and
generous patronage, all
of which have played a
critical role in UMS being
recognized at the highest
level. Artists tell us time
and time again that “UMS
audiences are the best” and
we wholeheartedly agree.
This medal belongs to all
of us.

This afternoon’s performance is sponsored by
the Candis J. and Helmut F. Stern Endowment
Fund and by the Renegade Ventures Fund,
established by Maxine and Stuart Frankel.
Funded in part by the Building Audiences

are seldom performed publicly but
deserve to be heard.
WHY THIS PROGRAM AND
REPERTOIRE…?
UMS asked Sphinx Organization
executive director Afa Dworkin why
this program is important to their
organization. She replied:
Today is when we remember our
female legends in classical music.
Today is the day that our communities
— and our young people — are
inspired, educated, and enlightened
by their legacies: Daniel Bernard
Roumain remembers Rosa Parks;
Jennifer Higdon evokes the sounds
of our nation by setting a remarkable
example as a Pulitzer Prize-winning
composer; Jessie Montgomery breaks
down barriers through her work
as composer-educator-violinist;
Gabriela Lena Frank takes us on an
anthropological journey through
her newest landscapes of Peru and
beyond. Today, we will be inspired
by the poignant, daring, authentic
diversity inherent in our communities.
Today, we have the chance to inspire
others by connecting our own stories
to music. I hope that this afternoon,
through this music, each audience
member may discover their own,
personal, inspiring experience.

CONCERTO FOR ORCHESTRA (EXCERPT) (2002)
Jennifer Higdon
Born 1962 in Brooklyn, New York
UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.
Snapshots of History…in 2002:
· Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl is kidnapped in Pakistan,
accused of being a CIA agent by his captors
· Alan Lomax, American folklorist and musicologist dies
· US President George W. Bush signs the Homeland Security Act into law
· The 2002 Winter Olympics are held in Salt Lake City, Utah
Jennifer Higdon is a major figure
in contemporary classical music,
receiving the 2010 Pulitzer Prize in
Music for her Violin Concerto and
a 2010 Grammy for her Percussion
Concerto. Ms. Higdon holds the Rock
Chair in Composition at The Curtis
Institute of Music in Philadelphia. Her
contributions to the world of musical
literature are enormous and the
example she has set for aspiring female
composers everywhere is legendary.
Of this excellent work, the composer
herself writes that it is a “sonic
celebration of the wonderful sound of
the string instruments of the orchestra.
From solos to massed playing, and
from plucking to bowing, this work
romps from beginning to end, rushing
headlong into what amounts to a
rolling fanfare for the instrument.” The
work, while a part of her Concerto for
Orchestra, is frequently performed as a
standalone piece. Our favorite elements
are captured in its vivacious energy and
capricious exuberance, which make for
a stark opening to a program dedicated
to bringing women artists to the
forefront of our concert experience.

UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.

“People always say that I didn’t
give up my seat because I was tired,
but that isn’t true. I was not tired
physically, or no more tired than I
usually was at the end of a working
day. I was not old, although some
people have an image of me as being
old then. I was 42. No, the only tired
I was, was tired of giving in. I knew
someone had to take the first step and
I made up my mind not to move. Our
mistreatment was just not right, and I
was tired of it.”
— Rosa Parks
As a Haitian-American composer, I
was raised by immigrant parents from
Haiti, who experienced American
life both before, and after, the Civil
Rights Act of 1964. Their views were
informed by life on a free Island
nation in Port-au-Prince, Haiti; life
in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois;
and life in the complex diversity
of Pompano Beach, Florida. They
identified with Malcolm and Martin,
Maya and Rosa, and the great Haitian
warriors, Makandal and Toussaint.
Civil rights, for our household, was
global, local, and part of the very
fabric of our lives and culture. I
6

created Rosa Parks Symphony as
a musical portrait of Rosa Parks’
struggle, survival, and legacy. The
music is a direct reflection of a
dignified resistance. It’s telling that
Rosa Parks Symphony may, in fact, be
performed on stages that didn’t allow
the presence of so many, so often. I
often refer to the stage as the last
bastion of democracy, where all voices
can and should be heard, where we are
all equal, important, and necessary. I
owe Ms. Rosa Parks a great debt, one
that cannot be paid back. It is my hope
that this music serves as a small, but
meaningful attempt to express the
love and affection I have for this great
American icon of liberty, justice, and
freedom.

Eugène Ysaÿe
Born July 16, 1858 in Liège, Belgium
Died May 12, 1931 in Brussels
UMS premiere: Violinist Ruggiero Ricci, November 1971 at Hill Auditorium.
Snapshots of History…in 1923:

Throughout history of the arts, the
role of women has transcended
various boundaries of time, culture,
stereotypes, reality, and mysticism.
An example along the mystical lines
emerges as a family legend from one
of the most influential, extraordinarily
talented violinists/composers,
Eugène Ysaÿe. Here, a woman is
portrayed as the ultimate muse
with supernatural powers capable
of creating, no less, the perfect
instrument. Hard to believe? Perhaps
so, but here is the legend, nevertheless:
The tale is of a boy who grew up to
be a blacksmith that plays the viol (a
bowed instrument resembling the cello)
rather masterfully. He learned from
a stranger that somewhere, there was
an instrument far more elegant and
beautiful than the viol, that was capable
of closely mirroring the human voice.
Upon learning of this instrument, the
boy (or now, a young man) yearned for a
day when he could play it. One night, a

woman of extraordinary beauty visited
him in his dream, kissed his brow, and
disappeared. The young man awoke and
in place of his forsaken viol, found the
most beautifully proportionate violin,
whose sound was singularly divine. Thus
came the first violin to the Ysaÿe family.

The legend notwithstanding,
the violin (birthed by a kiss from a
goddess, or otherwise) comes alive
in Ysaÿe’s Violin Sonata No. 3. This is
a celebrated classic, of unparalleled
beauty, complexity, and virtuosity.
Dedicated to a famed musician,
George Enescu, the work certainly
pays tribute to his talents. Powerful
and memorable, the piece features an
irresistibly catchy dance rhythm in
its refrain, masterfully interspersed
with imaginative rhapsodic melodies.
Performed frequently by artists far
and wide, it is offered with pride
tonight by an inspiring young woman,
Hannah White, who holds the piece as
a treasure and a favorite work.

IN MEMORY (2002)
Joan Tower
Born September 6, 1938 in New Rochelle, New York
UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.
The second String Quartet by Joan
Tower is a short but complex work
addressing thoughts of death and loss,
written in memory of an old friend.
The piece was commissioned by,
and is dedicated to, the Tokyo String
Quartet who first performed the piece
in February 2002 at the 92nd Street Y,
New York City.
Further inspired by the events in
New York on September 11, 2001,
the writing contains high, sustained,
celestial material which slowly
descends. This writing is paired with
more forceful, driving, and repetitive
musical ideas that attempt to express
the anger and pain that results from
the loss of people in one’s life.

Catalyst Quartet.

CUENTOS ERRANTES: FOUR NEW FOLK SONGS (2015)
Gabriela Lena Frank
Born September 1972 in Berkeley, California
UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.
Cuentos Errantes (Wandering
Stories): Four New Folk Songs for
piano and strings draws on the
utopian concept of mestizaje as
envisioned by the Peruvian writer,
José María Arguedas (1911–1969) in
which cultures can co-exist without
one subjugating another. As a mixedrace American-born mestiza, I’ve
long been enamored with the poetry,
music, and cuisine of my mother’s
beautiful homeland of Perú and
explore these in my compositions. My
latest foray, Cuentos, consists of four
movements:
I. “Harawi de Charanguista Ciego”
(Harawi of the Blind Charanguista)
The blind charango players of Perú
are famous and beloved. Wizened with
broken voices, these revered elders
of the small charango guitar (often
constructed using an armadillo shell)
convey tremendous emotion, both
plaintive and stately. Here, I imagine
a charanguista accompanying
himself with strummed tremolos
and repeated notes while singing
an harawi, a love song with Inca
roots that is melancholy and
minimally accompanied, if at all. The
piano is largely soloistic while the
strings introduce and conclude the
movement in a style reminiscent of
the bass toyos panpipes.

II. “Kachampa Picante”
(Spicy Kachampa)
My rendition of a traditional battle
dance, nimbly executed for tourists
and natives alike. Rhythmic and lively,
kachampas nowadays exhibit a bit
of mischievous wit in addition to the
expected moves designed to show off the
dancers’ excellent physical conditioning.
III. “Serenata Serrana”
(Mountain Serenade)
Both lyrical and fluttery in nature, this
serenade’s melodies are accompanied
almost exclusively by strummed strings.
IV. “Huayno Silbando”
(Whistling Huayno)
A song form of the larger Andean
region including Ecuador and Bolivia,
simple harmonies and a recognizable
karnavalito rhythm persist throughout.
Cuentos Errantes is lovingly dedicated
to Edward Orth Doughtie (1935–2014),
my residential college master in the
early years of my musical training at Rice
University in Houston, Texas. A life-long
lover of classical music and a wonderful
amateur violist, Ed was the first person in
my young life to encourage me to explore
my heritage in music. He shall be missed.

Edward Elgar
Born June 2, 1857 in Broadheath, near Worcester, England
Died February 23, 1934 in Worcester
UMS premiere: Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, February 1999 at Rackham
Auditorium
Snapshots of History…in 1892:
· Ellis Island begins accommodating immigrants to the US
· The General Electric Company is established
· St. Petersburg, Florida is incorporated
· In San Francisco, John Muir organizes the Sierra Club
Sir Edward Elgar met with much
acclaim and notoriety for his work
as a composer not only at home in
England, but also abroad. He was a
violinist, though his concert career
did not flourish easily, which may
have led to his shift in focus and
devotion to conducting alongside
composition. The Serenade for
Strings likely takes its roots from a
time period when Elgar conducted the
Worchestershire Musical Union, an
all-female orchestra. The work in its
current rendition, however, known,
performed, and beloved by many,
was written for his wife, Alice, on
the occasion of their third wedding
anniversary. Some of the composer’s
own writings suggest that she was
indeed an inspiration for much of
his work and the Serenade, while a
relatively early composition, is but
an example that has become a rather
popular piece. The Serenade overall is
well crafted for the strings medium,
in which he found himself very
comfortable. It is sonorous, melodic,
deeply lyrical, and stirring at times.
The composer does employ a more
10

original strategy by devoting a special
role to the viola section, drawing
upon the instrument’s more assertive,
deeper timbre.

Jessie Montgomery
Born 1981 in New York
UMS premiere: This piece has never been performed on a UMS concert.
Snapshots of History…in 2012:
· After 244 years since its first publication, the Encyclopedia Britannica
discontinues its print edition
· The century’s second and last solar transit of Venus occurs
· The 2012 Summer Olympics are held in London, England
· Wisława Szymborska, Polish Nobel poet, dies in February
Jessie Montgomery’s brief onemovement work Star-burst for
string orchestra is a play on imagery
of rapidly changing musical colors.
Exploding gestures are juxtaposed
with gentle fleeting melodies in an
attempt to create a multidimensional
soundscape. A common definition of
a starburst: “the rapid formation of
large numbers of new stars in a galaxy
at a rate high enough to alter the
structure of the galaxy significantly”
lends itself almost literally to the
nature of the performing ensemble
premiering the work, The Sphinx
Virtuosi, and the piece is hereby
dedicated to them.

UMS ARCHIVES
UMS has a long history with the Sphinx Organization which goes back to
its founding in 1996. Over the years, UMS has co-presented the Sphinx
Chamber Orchestra with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in Detroit’s
Orchestra Hall, collaborated on annual youth performances tied to the annual
Sphinx Competition, showcased Sphinx chamber ensembles such as the
Sphinx Quartet at the 2005 Ford Honors Program celebrating the Guarneri
Quartet, and shared a remarkable number of board leaders and volunteers.

ARTISTS
The Sphinx Virtuosi, led by the Catalyst
Quartet, is one of the nation’s most
dynamic professional chamber orchestras.
Comprised of 18 of the nation’s top Black
and Latino classical soloists, these alumni
of the internationally renowned Sphinx
Competition come together each fall
as cultural ambassadors to reach new
audiences. This unique ensemble earned
rave reviews from The New York Times
following its debut at Carnegie Hall in
December 2004. Allan Kozinn described
their performance as “first-rate in every
way” and “the ensemble produced a more
beautiful, precise, and carefully shaped
sound than some fully professional
orchestras that come through Carnegie
Hall in the course of the year.”
The Sphinx Virtuosi have returned
to Carnegie Hall annually since 2006,
performing to sold-out halls and earning
outstanding reviews from The New York
Times each year. At once a bridge between
minority communities and the classical
music establishment, the Sphinx Virtuosi
continue to garner critical acclaim during
their annual national tours to many of the
leading venues around the country. This
year marks the eighth national tour for
the Sphinx Virtuosi.
Inspired by Sphinx’s overarching
mission, the Sphinx Virtuosi works
to advance diversity in classical
music while engaging young and new
audiences through performances of
varied repertoire. Masterpieces by Bach,
Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi, and Mozart are
performed alongside the more seldom
presented works by composers of color,
including Coleridge-Taylor Perkinson,
George Walker, Michael Abels, and Astor
Piazzolla.
The four principals of the Sphinx

Virtuosi are members of the Catalyst
Quartet, which has independently
garnered acclaim in performances
around the world. Members of the
Sphinx Virtuosi have performed as
soloists with America’s major orchestras,
including the New York Philharmonic,
and the Cleveland, Detroit, Atlanta,
Philadelphia, Seattle, and Pittsburgh
Symphony Orchestras. Members also

competitions, including the Queen
Elizabeth and Yehudi Menuhin. Roster
members have completed their advanced
studies at the nation’s top music schools,
including Juilliard, Curtis, Eastman,
Peabody, Harvard, and the University
of Michigan. The Sphinx Virtuosi’s first
recording was released in 2011 on the
White Pine label and features music of
Mendelssohn, Sibelius, Gabriela Lena
Frank, and George Walker.
Hailed by The New York Times at their
Carnegie Hall debut as “invariably
energetic and finely burnished…playing
with earthy vigor,” Catalyst Quartet
is comprised of top Laureates and
alumni of the internationally acclaimed
Sphinx Competition. Inspired by music’s
ability to transform, Catalyst Quartet
seeks to change the way classical
music is perceived through diversity in
programming, inspiring audiences with

Sir Edward William Elgar was born at
Lower Broadheath in 1857, within sight

of the Malvern Hills and the tower of
Worcester Cathedral, features that meant
much to him throughout his creative life.
In boyhood, he showed a precocious gift for
keyboard improvisation, later becoming
a competent organist, an outstanding
violinist and a conductor of nervous
energy and much flexibility, proving
notably successful in recordings of his
own music. Many of his orchestral works,
instrumental concertos, choral, chamber
music, and songs have entered the
British and international classical music
repertoire. He was appointed Master of the
King’s Musick in 1924.
Jessie Montgomery is a New York
native violinist, composer, and music
educator, recognized through generous
grants and fellowships as an important

the Sorel Organization. Ms. Montgomery
will be the Composer-Educator for the
Albany Symphony in the current season,
leading youth education initiatives and
performances of recent works. Further
attention has come with commissions
from the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra,
the Young People’s Chorus of New York,
and Cygnus Ensemble. Ms. Montgomery
was the inaugural musician fellow at
Lighthouse Works in partnership with the
Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and in 2011–
12 was the Van Lier Composer Fellow
at the American Composers Orchestra,
with performances of her small ensemble
works showcased throughout New
York City in the SONiC Festival and the
Composers OutFront! Series. Since 2012,
Ms. Montgomery has been Composer-inResidence with the Sphinx Virtuosi and

The Sphinx Organization is the Detroitbased national organization dedicated to
transforming lives through the power of
diversity in the arts. The organization’s
founding and mission were informed by
the life experiences of Aaron P. Dworkin.
As a young Black violinist, he was acutely
aware of the lack of diversity both on stage
and in the audience in concert halls. While
a graduate student at the University of
Michigan, he founded Sphinx to address
the stark under-representation of people
of color in classical music. Aaron Dworkin
was President Obama’s first appointment
to the National Council on the Arts. He
currently serves as Dean of the University
of Michigan’s School of Music, Theatre &
Dance.
President and Artistic Director
Afa S. Dworkin now leads the Sphinx
Organization, with programs annually
reaching over 100,000 students, as well
as live and broadcast audiences of over
two million. Sphinx works to create
positive change in the arts field and in
communities across the country through
programs organized into four main
principles: Education and Access, Artist
Development, Performing Arts, and Arts
Leadership.
As the organization has grown, so has
