Matthew Savery — Music Director and Conductor Fresh on the heels of what has been called his “tour-de-force” Carnegie Hall debut in June of 2015, American conductor Matthew Savery enjoys an everexpanding reputation for his multi-faceted career as an electrifying performer, dedicated orchestra builder and charismatic teacher. Mr. Savery is currently serving as Music Director and Conductor of the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Symphonic Choir as well as the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra. Having collaborated with some of the most exciting artists of our time, such as Jon Nakamatsu, Alexander Markov, The Canadian Brass, Carol Wincenc, Roberto Diaz, Andres Cardenes, Ryan Anthony, Judith Ingolfsson, and many more, Matthew Savery’s career has brought him to orchestras throughout the United States, Europe and Canada. He has led performances with the Boise, Dayton, Fort Wayne, Long Island and Naples philharmonics, Indianapolis, East Texas, El Paso, Greater Bridgeport (16 performances), Greater Lansing, Lake St. Clair, New Haven, Quad City, Saginaw Bay, Sioux City, Springfield (MA, MO and OH), South Dakota and Virginia Symphony Orchestras, Missouri Chamber Orchestra, Cape May Music Festival, Canada’s Victoria Symphony, Italy’s Orchestra Sinfonica di Bari, Turkey’s Presidential Symphony Orchestra, and the National Symphony Orchestra of Ukraine. While at the University of Michigan, Matthew Savery was the founding Music Director of the University Campus Chamber Orchestra; subsequently, he served as Music Director of the Comic Opera Guild of Ann Arbor. Along with his regular duties with the Bozeman Symphony, where his innovative subscription, family and children’s programming earns consistent praise and sold-out houses, Matthew Savery has established an active commissioning program, bringing compelling new compositional voices to his orchestra and its audiences, among them: Kenneth Fuchs–Glacier (Concerto for Electric Guitar and Orchestra); Erik Santos–Karnak, ...in the Mines of Desire, Sun Road (Five Symphonic Dances for Orchestra); Elodie Lauten - Symphony 2001; James M. Stephenson, III - Concertino and Fanfare for Orchestra; Lowell Liebermann - Concerto for Clarinet. During his years with the orchestra, Mr. Savery has also presided over a ten-fold rate of financial growth, while regularly attracting over 3% of Bozeman’s metropolitan population to its concerts. Matthew Savery offers Montana’s schools a “Conductor in Residency” program that has accounted for dozens of hours per school year. He is much in demand as guest lecturer and in-school clinician. Mr. Savery is a recipient of the Eugene and Sadie Power Award for the Performing Arts. In October 1998, he and the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra were the subjects of a special feature on “CBS Sunday Morning.” Since his appointment to the Wyoming Symphony Orchestra, Matthew Savery and his notable artistic and organizational skills have refocused the greater-Casper area’s attention on the orchestra with gratifying results, among them a dramatic elevation of the orchestra’s artistic achievement and the quality of its guest artists, a broadening of the scope of the performance repertoire, a 30% increase in attendance and a 35% increase in the budget. With enthusiastic board support, he has introduced children and family programming, the “Music on the Move” outreach program, and his “Conductor in Residency” program for the public schools. Of special pride to the entire organization was Maestro Savery’s development of the “Wyoming Symphony Orchestra Young Artist Competition”— the first of it’s kind in the State of Wyoming—geared towards both high school and college students. A native of Western Massachusetts, just “down the road” from the famed Tanglewood Music Festival, Matthew Savery graduated from the New England Conservatory of Music and received his Master of Music Degree from the University of Michigan, where he was the recipient of a Teaching Assistantship to the prestigious studio of Gustav Meier and to which he returned in 2001 and 2006 as a Visiting Guest Lecturer. In addition to Mr. Meier, his principal teachers have been Pascal Verrot and Frank Battisti. Matthew makes his home in Bozeman, Montana, with his wife Soprano Catherine Viscardi Savery, and their three year old son Adam.
A Letter from the Maestro Matthew Savery
Dear Friends, Today we put on display the music of two well-known and respected composers who emerged from the eastern European tradition. One, Antonín Dvořák, famous for works firmly embedded in our standard repertoire and regularly performed the world over. The other, Miklós Rózsa, who lived what he called a “double-life” as a composer dedicated to writing concert music, but who became famous as one of Hollywood’s most successful film composers, having been nominated for 13 Academy Awards and receiving three, most notably for his glorious score to the 1959 film Ben-Hur. It was my long-time friend and colleague Jolyon Pegis, Associate Principal Cellist of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, who sent me a score to Rózsa’s Sinfonia Concertante, in the hopes to find more performances for himself and his Dallas Symphony colleague Maria Schleuning. I was immediately intrigued. The idea of presenting a double concerto has been on my mind for several years, but tackling a piece like this was too good to resist. Moving effortlessly from the intensely passionate to the sublimely serene, this work proves Rózsa to be a composer of the highest caliber. Written for two giants, Jascha Heifetz and Gregor Piatigorsky, the stories of their dueling giant egos while collaborating on this work are sure to provide a few giggles to any classical music lover. However, funny behind-the-scenes stories aside, this piece has earned a respected place in the repertory, and we feel privileged to present it to you. After the break you will hear one of the most cherished gems of the repertoire, Dvořák’s 8th Symphony. Typically referred to as his “Pastoral,” and obvious reference to Beethoven’s 6th Symphony and more subtly Brahms’ 2nd Symphony, this is Dvořák at his deepest and most profound. There are no gimmicks here—none of the standard bells and whistles. Instead we hear the highest level of musical thought presented in a most graceful way. I just adore this symphony, and I hope you will too! As always, we thank you for joining us and for your continued support of live symphonic music in the Gallatin Valley. Enjoy!

The Underwriters We are fortunate to live in the beauty of the valleys and mountains that surround us. We are doubly blessed to have in our small community the magnificent music brought to us by the Bozeman Symphony Orchestra and Choir. This remarkable achievement is due to the unusual number of highly talented musicians living among us, and to their selfless dedication to the orchestra and choir. We all benefit in some way from our orchestra and choir. Those who hear them benefit the most, but all of us benefit from the way they enrich the entire community. We, in turn, owe our orchestra and choir our generous and continuing support. For this reason, our Underwriters have committed to contributing a minimum of $1,200 to the Bozeman Symphony this year (the equivalent of $100 each month, exclusive of tickets or other benefits) and, if circumstances permit, in future years as well. Please join the Bozeman Symphony Society in thanking the Underwriters for their ongoing commitment to the Symphony and its wellbeing, and consider becoming a member of our Underwriters Group to help provide a stable and secure base of funding for our orchestra for years to come. Please contact us at 585-9774 for information about becoming an Underwriter.

Program Notes by Alan Leech This Bozeman Symphony concert program brings together strong works that come directly from Eastern Europe, specifically Hungary and Bohemia (now the Czech Republic). Although the music of Rózsa and Dvořák is different in style upon first hearing, the composers were born only 66 years apart and in places less than 350 miles apart. When Emperor Franz Joseph I was in power, he ruled Austria-Hungary, as well as Bohemia, making the two composers in this concert practically neighbors. The somewhat modal sounds of the melodies, as well as the interesting harmonies and rhythms found in the folk music of this region, provide an appealing although slightly different sound to the music more often heard in American concert halls.
Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904): Festival March, op.54 [B.88] (1879) This festive showpiece was written as an introduction to a gala performance marking the silver wedding anniversary [yes, the 25th] of Emperor Franz Joseph I and his wife, the Empress Elizabeth. The Festival March was premiered in Prague by the Provisional Theater Orchestra. Franz Joseph was the longest reigning Emperor of Austria (in fact, the third longest reigning monarch in history of any European country) and his various titles included “King of Hungary, Croatia, and Bohemia.” So it is no surprise that he might have been in Prague for a celebration concert. The fact that Franz Joseph’s court resided in Vienna is reflected in Dvořák’s composition of this bright piece, with its overtones of the romantic-styled Strauss waltzes, marches, and light-hearted popular pieces that were common in Vienna. Dvořák had also made his own Bohemian-styled contributions to that popular orchestra genre with his Slavonic Dances.
Miklós Rózsa (1907-1995): Sinfonia Concertante for Violin, Cello and Orchestra, op.29 (1966) Miklós Rózsa was born in Hungary, trained in Germany, and active in France, England, and in the United States. He was introduced to film scoring by his friend, Swiss composer Arthur Honegger, who confessed that he supplemented
his income by writing scores for films (at the time Les Misérables) – and after Rózsa went to see (and hear) that film in 1934, he immediately understood the opportunities that the film media was offering to a talented composer. Our audience is most likely to have an acquaintance with Rózsa’s music for Hollywood films, including Thief of Bagdad (1940), Spellbound (1945), A Double Life (1947), and Ben-Hur (1959) – the last three of which earned Academy Awards for him. His more recent film scores include The Green Berets (1968), The Golden Voyage of Sinbad (1973), Time after Time (1979), Eye of the Needle (1981), and Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid (1982). In fact, although he authored close to one hundred film scores, Rózsa always remained tied to his ‘concert’ music composition. His string music was strongly championed by violinist Jascha Heifetz, and by cellists Gregor Piatigorsky and János Starker. The Violin Concerto of 1954 was written for Heifetz, who collaborated in the fine touches as the work was finished. Rózsa adapted portions of the Concerto in his score for Billy Wilder’s The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes (1970), the plot of which according to Wilder, was inspired by Rózsa’s Concerto. The Sinfonia Concertante for solo Violin and Cello, op.29, was commissioned by Heifetz and Piatigorsky, but they never performed the entire work. Rózsa worked on the piece between Hollywood film assignments, and showed his drafts-in-progress to the soloists, who squabbled over who was getting the longer solos and more brilliant passages. The composer then worked very carefully in order to make the parts as equal as possible. He first completed the second movement (Theme, Variations and Finale) and it was performed and recorded by the soloists with a reduced orchestration. This was given a separate opus number in that version: op.13a. A revealing insight to the musical material in the piece is to understand that the composition is based on original themes purposely written in Hungarian folk style (I think of Béla Bartók’s many pieces in this style). The first movement begins with broad, sweeping music involving the soloists and the orchestra, which then gives way to periods of intimate melodies and interactions between the soloists alternating with sections of more dramatic,
engaging entanglements. Following an extended cadenza for the two solo strings, there is a gradual building of excitement to an excited ending that seems more expectant than complete – leading us on to the slow movement that follows.
chronological order - this G major symphony was “old No.4”. At any rate, the current knowledge of all nine symphonies with appropriate numbering was not known until the 1930’s.
The second movement begins with an original melody that Rózsa wrote in a Hungarian style with its character more of ‘modes’ rather than ‘scales’. The cello states the lyrical theme and then is joined by the violin to enhance and extend. The whole movement then proceeds with a series of variants using the theme as basis for segments that seem to present many different moods and tempos, all the while developing the musical ideas. The conclusion of the movement seems to tie together what has come before and summarize it with a bit more drama.
There are stories that Dvořák himself didn’t think as much of the four earliest symphonies, and referred to them as youthful and demonstrations of his shortcomings as a composer. In fact, he noted in his own catalogue of works that he had torn up and burned his first symphony, op.3. Luckily the score was later found in a second-hand bookstore in Germany, and that First Symphony is actually one of my personal favorites of the nine.
The final movement, the shortest, begins with a defiant, almost angry orchestral introduction, which is followed by a dance tune (again in a Hungarian style) presented by the two soloists. As we are carried through this movement, the soloists and the orchestra continually seem to be pushing us forward in an excited fashion. Following a short cadenza by the two strings, we are sped toward the very bright flash of virtuosity that brings the conclusion with a flourish of excitement. Considering the predominance of the Hungarian-styled influence in this piece from the country of his birth, and the necessary prominence of the string soloists (with the Romantic era underpinnings of major string literature at the time), and combining those things with the many years of Rózsa’s experience in the writing of superb, dramatic film music, this Sinfonia Concertante brings us one of the strongest works in the composer’s musical output.
Antonín Dvořák (1841-1904): Symphony No. 8 in G, op.88 [B.163] (1889) Written just ten years after the Festival March at the beginning of this program, this popular Symphony of Dvořák is a delight to hear. But the term ‘popular’ may need a little explanation. We now recognize nine symphonies in Dvořák’s catalogue, but for a long time, only five were really well-known and performed. The five ‘popular’ symphonies weren’t even published with their opus numbers in order, so they were misunderstood according to proper
The G major symphony was written in record time: sketched between September 6th and 23rd of 1889, and completed the following month. The first performance was by the Prague National Theatre Orchestra in February of the following year. Simrock, Dvořák’s Czech publisher, was mostly interested in short pieces (like Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances) and offered the composer practically nothing for his score to this work. Dvořák had had a very successful performance of this symphony in England just two months following its premiere in Prague, and so the London publisher Novello was able to publish the work, hence it was sometimes referred to as the “English” symphony. A few people even decided that the work had made some use of English national material, but that is not true – it is very Bohemian/Czech in character and musical origin. Dvořák was always a champion of the idea of “nationalistic” music, proclaiming that a composer should always utilize local folk music and the language characteristics of his or her own region on which to base a musical language. The first movement begins with a dignified motive in lower instruments and in G minor rather than major. This is a sort of motto that Dvořák uses to introduce the three main parts of the first movement: the exposition, development, and recapitulation. The solemn and stately mood is tossed aside by the solo flute, playing a bright joyful melody above the violins, and establishing the happier G major key of the movement. The music proceeds in the happy and often excited character with bits of
Program Notes (continued) Slavic-styled melodies that were so much the center of Dvořák’s music. The coda is an explosion of happiness. The slow, second movement is beautiful in the extreme, filled with lyricism and also tinged with a touch of sadness. The music seems very restful and accepting, but is sometimes more playful, and sometimes more dramatic. In the dance movement, Dvořák has presented us with a lovely waltz, which floats past in a very balletic fashion, making us all want to dance gracefully. The coda throws the waltz away with a sort of scherzo or joke in the style of one of Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, that prepares us for the final movement.
The fourth and final movement begins with a trumpet fanfare setting us up for something to happen. And then we are surprisingly presented with a romantic theme (related perhaps to the theme in the first movement) that is very luscious but will eventually provide the basis for a lot of variations on the material. It is easy to hear the Slavic sounds of a boisterous peasant celebration as the variants of the melodies are presented and then developed in turn. Following a beautiful slow variation, we are sent through a gradual build to the brilliant ending. The trumpet fanfare at the beginning does then make sense leading to the excitement in the movement, particularly to that exciting ending with the full orchestra expressing complete joy and triumph.
