Tradition

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.

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!”

N O W T H AT Y O U ' R E
I N Y O U R S E AT. . .
The idea that binds Beethoven’s and
Mahler’s iconic symphonies together
is Romantic heroism — that is, the
image of an exceptional solitary
individual confronting the entire
world. In Beethoven’s case, the hero
struggles against the vicissitudes of
destiny, and emerges victorious at
the end. In the Mahler symphony that
will follow, the comparable passage
from tragedy to triumph all takes
place in the final movement, preceded
by more gentle, idyllic or, at most,
mock-serious episodes. What is so
great about both symphonies is the
enormous communicative power and
relentless drive of the music, always
on the move, with every note filled
with intense expression. Together,
they represent a pair of mighty
bookends for the Romantic century,
two shining landmarks in the history

This is the symphony that, along
with an image of Beethoven, looking
agitated and disheveled, has come
to represent greatness in music. In
fact, many people know only the very
opening seconds, just as they may
remember vividly and accurately
no more than the Mona Lisa’s smile,
or the first 10 words of Hamlet’s
soliloquy. It’s hard to know how so
few notes, so plainly strung together,
could become so popular. There are
certainly those who would argue that
this isn’t even Beethoven’s greatest
symphony, just as the Mona Lisa
isn’t Leonardo’s finest painting —
Beethoven himself preferred his
“Eroica” to the Fifth Symphony. And
yet, it’s hardly famous beyond its
merits, for one can’t easily think of
another single composition that in
its expressive range and structural
power better represents what music is
all about.

Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony has
spoken forcefully and directly to many
listeners — trained and untrained
— over the years; we each listen and
understand in our own way. We can
probably find ourselves somewhere
here, among the characters of E.M.
Forster’s Howard’s End:
Whether you are like Mrs. Munt, and tap
surreptitiously when the tunes come —
of course not so as to disturb the others;
or like Helen, who can see heroes and
shipwrecks in the music’s flood; or like
Margaret, who can only see the music;
or like Tibby, who is profoundly versed
in counterpoint, and holds the full score
open on his knee; or like their cousin,
Fräulein Mosebach, who remembers
all the time that Beethoven is “echt

to terms with the one composer who
was clearly his equal. As late as 1830,
Mendelssohn tried one last time to
interest the aging poet in Beethoven’s
music, enthusiastically playing
the first movement of the Fifth
Symphony at the piano. “But that does
not move one,” Goethe responded, “it
is merely astounding, grandiose.”
Take the celebrated opening,
which Beethoven once, in a moment
he surely regretted, likened to Fate
knocking at the door. It is bold and
simple, and like many of the mottos
of our civilization, susceptible to all
manner of popular treatments, none
of which can diminish the power of
the original. Beethoven writes eight
notes, four plus four — the first tata-ta-TUM falling from ‘G’ down to
‘E-flat,’ the second from ‘F’ to ‘D.’ For
all the force of those hammer strokes,
we may be surprised that only strings
and clarinets play them. Hearing
those eight notes and no more, we
can’t yet say for certain whether this
is E-flat Major or c minor. As soon as
Beethoven continues, we hear that
urgent knocking as part of a grim and
driven music in c minor. But when the
exposition is repeated, and we start
over from the top with E-flat Major
chords still ringing in our ears, those
same ta-ta-ta-TUM patterns sound
like they belong to E-flat Major. That
ambiguity and tension are at the
heart of this furious music — just as
the struggle to break from c minor,
where this movement settles, into the
brilliance of C Major — and will carry
us to the end of the symphony.
If one understands and remembers
those four measures, much of what
happens during the next 30-odd
minutes will seem both familiar and

logical. We can hear Fate knocking
at the door of nearly every measure
in the first movement. The forceful
horn call that introduces the second
theme, for example, mimics both
the rhythm and the shape of the
Symphony’s opening. (We also can
notice the similarity to the beginning
of the Fourth Piano Concerto — and,
in fact, ideas for both works can be
found in the same sketchbooks, those
rich hunting grounds where brilliance
often emerges in flashes from a
disarray matched by the notorious
condition of the composer’s lodgings.)
Although the first movement
is launched with the energy and
urgency of those first notes, its
progress is stalled periodically by
echoes of the two long-held notes in
the first bars; in the recapitulation a
tiny, but enormously expressive oboe
cadenza serves the same purpose.
The extensive coda is particularly
satisfying not because it effectively
concludes a dramatic and powerful
movement, but because it uncovers
still new depths of drama and
power at a point when that seems
unthinkable.
The “Andante con moto” is a distant
relative of the theme and variations
that often turn up as slow movements
in classical symphonies. But unlike
the conventional type, it presents
two different themes, varies them
separately, and then trails off into a
free improvisation that covers a wide
range of thoughts, each springing
almost spontaneously from the
last. The sequence of events is so
unpredictable, and the meditative
tone so seductive, that, in the least
assertive movement of the symphony,
Beethoven commands our attention
7

to the final sentence.
Beethoven was the first to notice
his scherzo’s resemblance to the
opening of the finale of Mozart’s great
g-minor symphony — he even wrote
out Mozart’s first measures on a
page of sketches for this music — but
while the effect there is decisive and
triumphant, here it is clouded with
half-uttered questions. Beethoven
begins with furtive music, inching
forward in the low strings, then
stumbling on the horns, who let loose
with their own rendition of Fate at the
door. At some point, when Beethoven
realized that the scherzo was part
of a bigger scheme, he decided to
leave it unfinished and move directly,
through one of the most famous
passages in music — slowly building in
tension and drama, over the ominous,
quiet pounding of the timpani — to
an explosion of brilliant C Major.
Composers have struggled ever
since to match the effect, not just of
binding movements together — that
much has been successfully copied —
but of emerging so dramatically from
darkness to light. The sketchbooks
tell us that these 50 measures cost
Beethoven considerable effort,
and, most surprisingly, that they
weren’t even part of the original plan.
Berlioz thought this transition so
stunning that it would be impossible
to surpass it in what follows.
Beethoven, perfectly understanding
the challenge — and also that of
sustaining the victory of C Major
once it has been achieved — adds
trombones (used in symphonic music
for the first time), the piccolo, and the
contrabassoon to the first burst of C
Major and moves forward towards his
final stroke of genius.
8

That moment comes amidst general
rejoicing, when the ghost of the scherzo
quietly appears, at once disrupting
C Major with unexpected memories
of c minor and leaving everyone
temporarily hushed and shaken.
Beethoven quickly restores order, and
the music begins again as if nothing has
happened. But Beethoven still finds it
necessary to end with 54 measures of
the purest C Major to remind us of the
conquest, not the struggle.

SYMPHONY NO. 1 IN D MAJOR (1881)
Gustav Mahler
Born July 7, 1860 in Kalischt, Bohemia
Died May 18, 1911 in Vienna
UMS Premiere: Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy;
April 26, 1969 in Hill Auditorium.
World premiere: November 20, 1889; Budapest, Hungary, with the composer
conducting.
Estimated duration: 57 minutes
Snapshots of History…In 1881:
· The American Red Cross is established by Clara Barton
· US President James A. Garfield dies 11 weeks after being shot; Vice
President Chester Arthur is sworn in
· Pablo Picasso is born
· Billy the Kid escapes from jail in New Mexico
The history of this symphony, even
into relatively recent times, is one
of misunderstanding and rejection.
The first performance, in Budapest in
1889, was greeted with indifference,
bewilderment, and, in the words of the
local critic, “a small, but, for all that,
audible element of opposition.”
For years the First Symphony led an
unhappy existence, greeted by chilly
receptions whenever it was played and
plagued by the composer’s continual
fussing, both over details and the big
picture. No other symphony gave him
so much trouble. He couldn’t even
decide if this music was a symphonic
poem, a program symphony, or a
symphony plain and simple — or
whether it should contain four or five
movements. Figuring all that out was
not an act of indecisiveness, but of
exploration. And by the time Mahler
published this music as his Symphony

No. 1 some 15 years after he began it,
he had not only discovered for himself
what a symphony could be, but he had
changed the way we have defined that
familiar word ever since.
We begin in Kassel in 1884, with
Johanna Richter, a soprano destined
for fame not as a singer, but as the
inspiration for Mahler’s first true
masterpiece, the Songs of a Wayfarer,
and as a stimulus for this symphony.
Mahler had gone to Kassel as a
conductor, but found the working
conditions unsatisfactory. Whatever
he missed in his work he gained in life
and love. Johanna Richter — or, more
precisely, unreturned love — unlocked
Mahler’s deepest feelings that year and
set his course, not as an accomplished
conductor, which he surely was, but as a
composer of vision and daring.
Mahler followed an unorthodox
path in getting from Johanna Richter
9

to his First Symphony, but it’s one he
would choose again and again when
writing music, and it’s the process as
much as the composer himself that
gives Mahler’s symphonies their
unconventional stamp. Henry James
once described a novelist as someone
on whom nothing is lost. For Mahler,
that defined a symphonist. The First
Symphony is indebted, in various ways,
to Johanna Richter, the Wayfarer
songs, incidental music Mahler wrote
for a production of Joseph Victor
von Scheffel’s Der Trompeter von
Säkkingen, a familiar children’s round,
the wife of Carl Maria von Weber’s
grandson, yodeling, military fanfares,
an early 19th-century woodcut, café
music, the opening of Beethoven’s
Ninth Symphony, bird song at dawn, a
love song he wrote in 1880, reveille, the
German Ländler — and sights, sounds,
and feelings we will never know. Since
Mahler hadn’t written a large, purely
orchestral work before, it took him
some time to find the right way to
bring all his resources together and to
make a convincing whole of so many
parts. In the meantime, life presented
new choices, and love was reawakened
by Marion von Weber, the wife of the
composer’s grandson.
The piece Mahler introduced in
Budapest on November 20, 1889,
was billed as a “Symphonic Poem in
two parts” — with three movements
in part one and two in part two. Only
the funeral march was labeled to help
listeners coming to the music cold.
Today it’s easy to see that it wasn’t
the lack of labels or comments, but
simply the staggering range and
provocative juxtaposition of materials
that bothered the first audience. For
the next performances, in Hamburg
10

and Weimar (in 1893 and 1894),
Mahler drew up a descriptive program,
gave titles to the movements, and
called the whole piece “Titan, a tone
poem in symphonic form,” after the
popular novel by Jean Paul. For Berlin
in 1896, Mahler again changed his
mind, dropped the titles and the
programmatic explanation, omitted
the second movement “Blumine,” and
settled on “Symphony in D Major, for
large orchestra.” In Vienna in 1900, a
notice in the program indicated that
Mahler wanted no explanatory notes
of any kind. Why such indecision? In
March 1896, at the time of the Berlin
performance, Mahler wrote to the
critic Max Marschalk about adding the
program in the first place:
…At the time my friends persuaded me to
provide a kind of program for the
D-Major Symphony in order to make it
easier to understand. Therefore, I had
thought up this title and explanatory
material after the actual composition.
I left them out for this performance,
not only because I think they are quite
inadequate and do not even characterize
the music accurately, but also because I
have learned through past experiences
how the public has been misled by them.

Still, Mahler’s First Symphony wasn’t
understood. Critics in Frankfurt
complained about the program, those
in Berlin missed it. Even though
Mahler finally decided to present this
symphony as abstract music with no
story to tell, he wrestled with the same
dilemma again in writing Symphonies
Nos. 2 and 3 and came to slightly
different conclusions each time.
Mahler’s final thoughts on this music
were published in 1899 as Symphony

No. 1, in four movements, and that’s
how it is known today.
The first movement begins “like a
sound of nature,” with fanfares and bird
calls sounding from the distance over
the gentle hum of the universe, tuned
to A-natural and scattered over seven
octaves. The method is one learned
by every composer since Beethoven,
whose Ninth Symphony opens with
bits and pieces that gradually become
music. It took Mahler a long time to
get the opening to sound the way he
wanted it; every effect is precisely
calculated, with consideration given
not only to the most delicate shades of
dynamics, but to the placement of the
players on and off the stage.
A cuckoo — unlike Beethoven’s
cuckoo in the “Pastoral” Symphony, it
sings the interval of a fourth instead of
a third — eventually pushes the sounds
of nature into a lovely, rolling melody.
That tune, beginning with the cuckoo’s
descending fourth, comes from the
second Wayfarer song, “Ging heut’
Morgen übers Feld” (I went through
the fields this morning), and its proud
walking music takes Mahler a long way.
Mahler reinvents the song as he goes,
reshuffling phrases and motives so
that even someone who knows the song
finds this music continually fresh.
Next comes a brief scherzo set in
motion by the foot-stomping dances
and yodeling that Mahler heard and
had already put to good use in one of his
first songs, “Hans und Grete,” in 1880.
“Dance around, around!” the song goes.
“Let whoever is happy weave in and
out! Let whoever has cares find his way
home.” There is a wistful trio, music
Mahler might have heard in a Viennese

café, more full of cares than joy, and
then the Ländler resumes.
The third movement used to upset
audiences, and even today it’s puzzling
to those hearing it for the first time.
What are we to make of this odd
assortment: a sad and distorted version
of “Frère Jacques” (Mahler knew it as
“Bruder Martin”); a lumbering funeral
march; some cheap dance-band music
remembered by pairs of oboes and
trumpets over the beat of the bass
drum; and the ethereal closing pages of
the Wayfarer songs — heaven and earth
all rolled into one? Mahler’s only clue
is “The Hunter’s Funeral Procession”
— a woodcut by Moritz von Schwind, a
friend of Schubert — which he claimed
was the inspiration for this music.
About the vulgar band music Mahler
leaves no doubt: “With parody” he
writes at the top of the page, just as the
drum and cymbal join in.
The finale begins with a “flash of
lightning from a dark cloud,” Mahler
tells us. “It is simply the cry of a
wounded heart.” This is music in search
of victory, and Mahler retreats from
battle several times before he triumphs.
The first stop allows us to savor
some lovely pastoral music we would
recognize if Mahler hadn’t ultimately
chosen to omit his original second
movement, “Blumine.” Later we return
to the fields of the first movement,
but we’re no longer setting off on our
journey — we’re headed straight for
the triumph that Mahler’s wayfarer
couldn’t achieve. This time success is
swift and unequivocal, and when the
horns are asked to play out — “even over
the trumpets” — victory is won.
