UMS Night School: Constructing Identity

In our ongoing Night School series, UMS explores the dynamic quality
of how human and social identities are constructed and explored in this
season’s artistic program. How do artists’ personal identities inform their
work? Do audiences’ own identities shape what they see on the stage?
UMS Night School invites participants to discover the intersections of
performance and identity in music, theater, and dance, and to meet others
who share a similar interest. The Night School curriculum will include
attendance at and discussion of Young Jean Lee’s Theater Company’s
Untitled Feminist Show & Straight White Men, Tanya Tagaq, Taylor
Mac, and Camille A. Brown & Dancers Black Girl—Linguistic Play. These
90-minute classes combine conversation, interactive exercises, and lectures
with genre experts to draw you into the themes related to identity and
performance. Drop in to just one session, or attend them all. Events are free,
and no pre-registration is required.

Tradition
Builds
the
Future

WINTER 2016

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.

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!”

Y O U R S E AT. . .
You are about to hear a true “Parisian”
program, even though only one of
the three composers was actually
French. But both Prokofiev and
Stravinsky lived in Paris for years.
Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto was
written in France, and Stravinsky’s
Firebird was premiered in Paris by the
Russian Ballet, whose director, Sergei
Diaghilev, also commissioned Debussy
and Prokofiev. The three works also
share the magic of youth — all three
composers were 30 or under when
they wrote these pieces. Their lives
and careers overlapped to a certain
extent: Stravinsky, in the middle in
terms of age, interacted with both
his older and his younger colleague.
Yet the program is far from unified
in terms of style. There is a whole
world — or more precisely, a world
war — separating the Debussy and the
Prokofiev works; in the 30 years that
elapsed between the two, Western
music had entered a whole new era in
its history, with Stravinsky as one of
the major catalysts of the change.

Claude Debussy
Born August 22, 1862 in Saint-Germain-en-Laye, France
Died March 25, 1918 in Paris
UMS premiere: Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Frederick Stock;
May 1907 in Hill Auditorium.
Snapshots of History…In 1892:
· Ellis Island begins accommodating immigrants to the US
· The General Electric Company is established through the merger of the
Thomson-Houston Company and the Edison General Electric Company
· Homer Plessy (who is black) is arrested for sitting on the whites-only

· Women are first admitted to Yale University’s graduate school

The importance of Stéphane
Mallarmé (1842–1898) in the history
of French poetry can hardly be
overestimated. His works, which
abound in complex symbols and
images, sought to represent states
of mind rather than ideas, express
moods rather than tell stories.
Mallarmé tried to capture that elusive
line between dream and awakening
that most of us who are not poets are
well aware of but are unable to put
into words.
Mallarmé’s eclogue “L’Après-midi
d’un Faune” (The Afternoon of a Faun)
was published in 1876. Debussy first
set a poem by Mallarmé to music in
1884, at the age of 22. Three years
later, the young composer joined the
circle of poets and artists who met at
Mallarmé’s house every Tuesday night
for discussions and companionship.
Thus he was thoroughly familiar with
the poet’s style long before he began
work on his prelude to “The Afternoon
of a Faun” in 1892.

The first-person narrator in the
eclogue (the word evokes associations
with the pastoral poetry of the
great Latin poet Virgil) is a faun, a
mythological creature who is half
man and half goat. The faun lives in
the woods, near a river surrounded
by reedy marshes; he is daydreaming
about nymphs who may be real or
mere figments of his imagination.
The faun’s desire is filtered through
the vagueness of its object as he
recalls past dreams, which emerge
from the shadows only to recede into
the darkness again.
In his music, Debussy admirably
captured that delicious vagueness of
contours which is so important in the
poem. The themes do not follow any
stable metric patterns, and instead
of progressing in a certain direction,
they remain entirely unpredictable,
reflecting the unconstrained nature
of the faun’s meditations.
The faun plays a flute, which evokes
the syrinx (the Greek panpipe)*; and
5

it is quite natural that in Debussy’s
music the orchestral flute is given
a solo part throughout. The languid
opening melody, which descends,
mostly in half-steps, from C-sharp to
G-natural and rises back to C-sharp
again (thus outlining the exotic
interval of the tritone, or augmented
fourth), has become famous as
an example of a melodic style
independent from any traditional
models. As it unfolds, the orchestral
accompaniment becomes more and
more intense. After a short resting
point, a new section starts in which
the first clarinet and the first oboe
temporarily take over the lead from
the flute; the tempo increases and a
new melody is introduced, in sharp
contrast with the chromatic flute
theme that opened the piece. The new
melody moves in wide intervals, and is
played by all the woodwinds, plus the
first horn, in unison. Finally, the first
theme returns in its original tempo;
following a passage that briefly
brings back some of the agitation of
the middle section, the music settles
into a serene and peaceful idyll which
prevails to the end.
*Debussy was to write a piece for unaccompanied
flute under the title Flûte de Pan in 1913,
planned as part of an incidental music; the piece
was published as Syrinx after Debussy’s death.

Sergei Prokofiev
Born April 23, 1891 in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine
Died March 5, 1953 in Moscow
UMS premiere: Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Thor Johnson with piano
soloist William Kapell; May 1951 in Hill Auditorium.
Snapshots of History…In 1921:
· The US formally ends World War I
· The first radio baseball game is broadcast; Harold Arlin announces the
Pirates-Phillies game from Forbes Field over Westinghouse KDKA, in
Pittsburgh
· In Atlantic City, New Jersey, the first Miss America Pageant is held
· Albert Einstein is awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics for his work with
the photoelectric effect

Six months after the October
Revolution of 1917, 27-year-old
Sergei Prokofiev left Russia for the
US. Already famous in his homeland
as the enfant terrible of modern
music, a controversial composer and a
pianist of dazzling virtuosity, he was
eager to make a name for himself in
the West as well.
His efforts to succeed in
America, however, were only half
successful. His first New York
recital, on November 20, 1918, had
positive reviews. His opera The
Love of Three Oranges got mostly
unfavorable reviews in Chicago,
with the critics treating Prokofiev
as a Bolshevist barbarian let loose
on the peaceful American shores.
As a result, Prokofiev soon decided
to make Western Europe his home
base instead of the US, although
his concert tours in this country
continued until 1938.
In the summer of 1921, Prokofiev
retreated to a small village on the

coast of Brittany in Northern France
to work on what in his autobiography
he called “a large virtuoso concerto.”
His first two concertos, written in
Russia, had been highly iconoclastic
works giving rise to heated debates.
This time, Prokofiev created a more
Classical piece, one that he hoped
would help establish him in the West.
Most of the concerto’s thematic
material derives from earlier works
and sketches that had accumulated
over a 10-year period; yet in its final
form the concerto is remarkably
unified in style and mood.
The concerto contains many
examples of that supreme musical
humor that has always been one of
Prokofiev’s hallmarks; it combines
melodic richness with a spectacular
virtuosity and interesting harmonic
innovations in a most attractive way.
The first movement opens with a
short “Andante” introduction whose
melody is stated by an unaccompanied
clarinet. The “Allegro” section is based
7

on a motif of quick 16th-notes, played
by the violins, and a quirky piano
motif (it is actually derived from the
“Andante” theme) that is elaborated
upon at some length. A new theme is
soon introduced by the oboe; all this
melodic material is then treated in a
free sonata form.
Next comes a theme with five
variations that stands as the
concerto’s slow movement, although
three of the five variations are rather
fast in tempo. These three (variations
nos. 2, 3, and 5) exploit the beautiful
lyrical theme more for its rhythmic
than for its melodic potential. The
other two, in which the piano plays
the leading role, are more delicate,
and filled with exciting chromatic
harmonies. The last variation turns
the theme into a march of sorts,
but the coda suddenly reverts to
the lyrical ambiance of the slow
variations.
The third-movement finale is brisk
and vigorous. It has an extended
middle section in a slower tempo
that abounds in special orchestration
effects (oboes doubling the clarinets
below, not above as usual; the cello
section playing the melody in an
extremely high register, etc.) The
middle section has its own middle
section where the piano, suddenly
switching from 3/4 to 4/4 time, plays
a simple melody based on a single
note. The dynamic material that
opened the movement returns for a
vivacious ending.

THE FIREBIRD (COMPLETE BALLET) (1910)
Igor Stravinsky
Born June 17, 1882 in Lomonosov, Russia
Died April 6, 1971 in New York City
UMS premiere: Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski;
May 1936 in Hill Auditorium.
Snapshots of History…In 1910:
· African-American boxer Jack Johnson defeats American boxer James J.
Jeffries in a heavyweight boxing match, sparking race riots across the US
· In Brazil, Sport Club Corinthinas Paulista, the first FIFA World Club
Championship, is founded
· The first air flight for the purpose of delivering commercial freight
takes place in the US, made by Wright brothers pilot Philip Parmalee

· Henry Ford sells 10,000 automobiles

Sergei Diaghilev’s Paris-based Ballets
Russes was one of the greatest ballet
companies in history that united
many of the best dancers of its time.
Diaghilev, the director, combined the
soul of a brilliant artist with the mind
and skills of a shrewd businessman.
He was committed to exciting and
innovative productions, and he sought
out the best modern artists and
composers available. Among musicians
alone, he worked over the years with
Debussy, Ravel, Falla, Prokofiev, and
others. However, he never made a more
sensational nor a more fruitful musical
discovery than when he engaged the
27-year-old Igor Stravinsky to write the
music for Michel Fokine’s new ballet,
The Firebird. It was the start of a long
collaboration that was to give the world
Petrushka, The Rite of Spring, Les
Noces, Mavra, and Apollon Musagète,
and which ended only shortly before
Diaghilev’s death in 1929.

Since the end of the 19th century,
there had been a great affinity
between Russia and France. The
political alliance between the two
countries had brought Russia closer to
France (France had always been close
to Russia where French had long been
the language of the educated classes).
At the same time, the geographical
distance and the difference in culture
endowed things Russian with an exotic
flavor in the eyes of the French. Both
Debussy and Ravel admired, and were
influenced by, the music of the 19thcentury Russian masters Mussorgsky
and Rimsky-Korsakov.
To create a story of an appropriately
exotic flavor, Fokine used several
Russian fairy-tales in the scenario
of The Firebird. The stories of the
beneficent Firebird and the evil ogre
Kastchei the Immortal are combined
in an ingenious plot, which Eric Walter
White summarized in his standard
book on Stravinsky as follows:
9

A young Prince, Ivan Tsarevich,
wanders into Kastchei’s magic garden
at night in pursuit of the Firebird,
whom he finds fluttering round a tree
bearing golden apples. He captures it
and extracts a feather as forfeit before
agreeing to let it go. He then meets a
group of 13 maidens and falls in love
with one of them, only to find that she
and the other 12 maidens are princesses
under the spell of Kastchei.
When dawn comes and the princesses
have to return to Kastchei’s palace, he
breaks open the gates to follow them
inside; but he is captured by Kastchei’s
guardian monsters and is about to
suffer the usual penalty of petrifaction,
when he remembers the magic feather.
He waves it; and at his summons the
Firebird appears and reveals to him the
secret of Kastchei’s immortality [his
soul, in the form of an egg, is preserved
in a casket]. Opening the casket, Ivan
smashes the vital egg, and the ogre
immediately expires. His enchantments
dissolve, all the captives are freed, and
Ivan and his Tsarevna are betrothed
with due solemnity.

According to the original plans,
the music for The Firebird was to be
written by Nikolai Tcherepnin and,
after Tcherepnin’s withdrawal, by
Anatoli Lyadov or Alexander Glazunov.
However, none of these more
experienced composers delivered the
score on time, so Diaghilev approached
Stravinsky, who had already worked
for him as an orchestrator, and whose
orchestral piece Fireworks had greatly
impressed him. The young composer,
honored by the commission, put aside
the opera The Nightingale whose first
act he had just completed, and began
work on the ballet.
10

The complete ballet consists of 19
musical numbers. Eighteen of these
belong to the first tableau and the
last number alone constitutes the
second tableau. The music had to
follow the plot very closely, in a strict
descriptive style we don’t often find
in Stravinsky’s works.
To describe the magic world
of fairy-birds and evil sorcerers,
Stravinsky had a whole tradition to
build on, a tradition he had inherited
from his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov.
In the last years before his death
in 1908, Rimsky had written three
operas on fantastic subjects, one
of which was titled Kastchei the
Immortal (the two others were
the Legend of the Invisible City of
Kitezh and the Golden Cockerel). In
his fantastic operas as elsewhere,
Rimsky-Korsakov made ample use
of a special scale Russian musicians
knew as the “Rimsky scale,” which
was also adopted by the master’s most
famous pupil. (The “Rimsky” scale,
also known as the “octatonic” scale,
consists of the regular alternation
of half-steps and whole steps: C–
C-sharp–D-sharp–E–F-sharp–G–A–
B-flat.) This particular grouping of
tones, lying outside the major-minor
system, is always associated with
the evil Kastchei. The music of the
magical Firebird is also chromatic in
nature, related in part to the Kastchei
music. The motifs of the Tsarevich, on
the other hand, are purely diatonic
(using a traditional seven-note scale)
and are derived from a central type
of Russian folksong known as the
“long-drawn-out” song (protyazhnaya
pesnya). Both the story and the
musical style of the ballet seemed
highly original in the West, where the

Russian traditions that had nourished
it were largely unknown.
For all the Rimsky influence,
Stravinky’s first ballet shows a
remarkable degree of individuality.
The handling of rhythm in
particular (with already quite a
few typical Stravinskyan ostinatos,
or stubbornly” repeated figures)
is quite innovative, and the
orchestration reveals the hand of
a true master. Even at this early
age, Stravinsky knew how to draw
the most spectacular effects from
his enormous orchestra. One may
cite special items like the famous
harmonic arpeggios (broken chords)
for strings in the introduction or
the solos for the small D-clarinet
at several points. But even more
important are the many new
combinations of instrumental colors
appearing on virtually every page of
the score.
The score contains numerous
section titles that correspond to
the stage action, though there
are no actual pauses in the music.
The sections, with a brief musical
description of each, are as follows:
The Introduction begins with the
rumble of low strings, trombones, and
bassoons, with the higher-pitched
instruments entering gradually as the
curtain rises on the first tableau.
Scene I
Kastchei’s Enchanted Garden. The
motif of the introduction is taken
over by the violins, punctuated by
short figures in the woodwind, harp,
and celesta.

Appearance of the Firebird Pursued
by Prince Ivan. For the first time,
the music becomes more agitated as
the anguished fluttering of the bird
is contrasted with a simple, Russianflavored theme representing the
prince. After a measure of general
rest, the…
Dance of the Firebird begins. The
melody in this brilliantly orchestrated
dance is derived entirely from sound
color, with the piccolo flute and
piccolo clarinet taking the lead; the
harp and the strings accompany with
trills and broken chords. The pizzicati
(plucked strings) in the cello provide
the rhythmic support.
Prince Ivan Captures the Firebird.
The flourishes in the woodwinds
come to a sudden standstill, and the
repeated chords in the four horns
indicate that the bird is no longer free
to move.
Supplications of the Firebird.
A slow, expressive melody is played
by solo viola, oboe, and English horn,
later taken over by the violins. The
tempo speeds up as the Firebird’s
plea becomes more insistent (flute
and oboe solos). After a return of the
slower theme, the prince (solo horn)
lets the bird go, and the flaps of its
wings can be heard in the woodwind.
The Appearance of the Thirteen
Enchanted Princesses is announced
by a magical chord progression in the
violins. A series of expressive solos
create a tender, lyrical mood.

11

The Princesses’ Game with the
Golden Apples (Scherzo). Dominated
by fast-moving 16th-notes in
the strings, the scherzo is briefly
interrupted by a lyrical middle section
with a clarinet solo.
Sudden Appearance of Prince Ivan.
As before, the prince is represented
by the solo horn and a simple Russian
melody in the minor mode.
The Princesses’ Round Dance
(Khorovod). One of the ballet’s great
melodies is introduced by the solo
oboe in a slow tempo. The actual
dance is slightly faster; the strings
and woodwind are joined, after a
while, by the first horn.
Daybreak. A trumpet call heralds
the arrival of the dawn. A brief and
forward-thrusting theme indicates
that Prince Ivan is approaching the
place where he will meet his great
challenge.
Three measures of energetic string
scales: Prince Ivan Penetrates
Kastchei’s Castle.
Magic Carillon: Appearance of
Kastchei’s Guardian Monsters,
and Capture of Prince Ivan. The
distinctive melodic style of the evil
sorcerer appears here for the first
time. The monsters charge Prince
Ivan as we hear a massive orchestral
buildup; the motion stops abruptly
as he is captured (not unlike what
happened to the Firebird earlier).

12

The Arrival of Kastchei the Immortal
is proclaimed by austere brass chords
and frightening tremolos in strings
and percussion.
His Dialogue with Prince Ivan.
It seems that the poor prince can
hardly get a word in edgewise in this
dialogue, for the short section is
entirely dominated by the music of
the sorcerer.
Intercession of the Princesses. The
solo violin plays the princesses’ theme
from earlier in the ballet, but the
melody is cut short by Kastchei’s wild
brass and percussion sounds.
Appearance of the Firebird. This
brief Allegro section, in which the
firebird’s familiar musical style is in
evidence throughout, leads directly
into the…
Dance of Kastchei’s Retinue under
the Spell of the Firebird. More
and more of Kastchei’s minions are
swept up in the ecstatic dance, with a
gradual crescendo leading to a tutti
climax.
Infernal Dance of all Kastchei’s
Subjects. A fast timpani roll
introduces a syncopated motif arising
from the lower registers (bassoons,
horn, tuba) and gradually taken over
by the entire orchestra. There is a
lyrical countersubject symbolizing
the plight of Kastchei’s prisoners.
As a total contrast, the Lullaby
(Firebird) is a delicate song for solo
bassoon, accompanied by harps and
muted strings.

A dissonant fanfare accompanies
Kastchei’s Awakening. But the
evil sorcerer’s end is imminent:
a powerful tutti downbeat and a
rapidly descending orchestral figure
accompanied by a decrescendo on the
bass drum depict…
Death of Kastchei, followed by
Profound Darkness — a short
interlude of divided string tremolos.
The scene changes.
Scene II
Disappearance of the Palace
and Dissolution of Kastchei’s
Magical Creations; Animation of
the Petrified Warriors; General
Thanksgiving. The finale, in which
everyone celebrates the wedding of
Prince Ivan and the princess, contains
what is probably the most famous
Russian folksong in in the ballet.
This beautiful melody, first played
by the first horn (Ivan’s instrument),
grows in volume and orchestration
until the full orchestra plays it. Here
a significant rhythmic change is
introduced: the symmetrical triple
meter (3/2) is transformed into an
asymmetrical 7/4, bringing the music
to its final culmination point.

on a North American tour and for returns
to the Orchestre National de France and
the London Symphony. He plays Chopin
with the San Francisco Symphony,
Tchaikovsky with the La Scala Orchestra,
and Liszt with the Pittsburgh Symphony
at home and on a North European tour. An
accomplished composer, it is also with the
Pittsburgh Symphony that Mr. Trifonov
reprises his own acclaimed piano concerto.
Besides making his recital debut in Los
Angeles, he undertakes an extensive,
high-profile European recital tour and
residencies in Lugano, Switzerland, and
at London’s Wigmore Hall, where he

and violinist Gidon Kremer.
Last season saw the release of Trifonov:
The Carnegie Recital, the pianist’s first
recording as an exclusive Deutsche
Grammophon artist; captured live at
his sold-out 2013 Carnegie Hall recital
debut. The album scored both an ECHO
Klassik Award and a Grammy nomination.
His discography also features Chopin on
Decca and Tchaikovsky’s First with Valery
Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra.
Born in Nizhny Novgorod in 1991,
Mr. Trifonov studied with Tatiana
Zelikman at Moscow’s Gnessin School
of Music and Sergei Babayan at the
Cleveland Institute of Music. In 2013
he was awarded Italy’s Franco Abbiati
Prize for “Best Instrumental Soloist.”

Since its founding in 1934, the
Montreal Symphony Orchestra (OSM)
has distinguished itself as a leader in the
orchestral life of Canada and Québec. A
cultural ambassador of the highest order,
the Orchestra has earned an enviable
reputation internationally through the
quality of its many recordings and tours.
The OSM carries on that rich tradition
under the leadership of its music director,
Kent Nagano, while featuring innovative
programming aimed at updating the
orchestral repertoire and deepening
the Orchestra’s connection with the
community.
The excellence and vision of the OSM
have been shaped over the years by
its music directors: Wilfrid Pelletier, a
Montrealer by birth and first artistic
director of the Orchestra; Désiré Defauw;
Igor Markevitch; Zubin Mehta, with whom
the Orchestra toured in Europe for the
first time; Franz-Paul Decker; Rafael
Frühbeck de Burgos; Charles Dutoit,
who collaborated with the Orchestra for
close to 25 years and under whom the
OSM achieved great prominence on the
international scene; and, since September
2006, Kent Nagano.
Over the years the Orchestra has
performed on more than 40 tours and
some 30 national and international
excursions. The OSM has carried out 10
tours in Asia, 11 in Europe, and three in
South America. Under the direction of
Kent Nagano, the OSM presented a concert
at Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris (2006), did
its first cross-Canada tour (2007), and in
September 2008, Maestro Nagano and
seven musicians from the Orchestra set off
on a historic tour of Nunavik, in northern
Québec, where their program included
Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale narrated in
Inuktitut. Kent Nagano and the Orchestra
have appeared twice in Carnegie Hall

almost every year between 1982 and 2004
to sold-out halls. In 2011 the OSM took
part for the first time in the Edinburgh
International Festival. Kent Nagano and
the Orchestra have together done a tour
in South America (2013), two European
tours (2009 and 2014), and two Asian tours
(2008 and 2014), including the OSM’s first
concerts in China in 2014. In March 2016,
the OSM, under the direction of Maestro
Nagano, embarks for its ninth major tour
in the US.
In September 2011, the OSM and
Maestro Nagano inaugurated Maison
symphonique de Montréal, the Orchestra’s
new home. The construction of this
concert hall was made possible thanks
to the Government of Quebec. The hall’s
acoustics bear the signature of the
firm Artec Consultants Inc., while its
architecture was entrusted to Diamond
Schmitt Architects Inc. in association with
Ædifica Architects.

The OSM offers its varied audience
an increasingly rich programming, one
that consists of orchestral concerts,
recitals, chamber music, and performances
featuring the OSM Chorus and the Grand
Orgue Pierre-Béique. The OSM figures
prominently outside the concert hall thanks
to the broadcast of concerts on a variety of
platforms, enabling it to reach thousands of
music lovers around the world.
