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 Maestro Matthew Savery

Welcome back and Happy New Year! The new year brings a new sense of excitement for all of us at the Symphony. Our new Executive Director, Christopher Freeze, has been “on the ground” for a few months now and, along with our Board of Directors, we are all inspired and reinvigorated to work hard to both strengthen our organization, and improve how we bring live music to all of you. With our 50th anniversary season just around the corner, we are strategizing how to celebrate our past 50 years while ensuring at least 50 more years of live symphonic music in Bozeman to come. We hope you will all take part! Tonight we “downsize” a bit, as we do every year at this time, by exploring the chamber orchestra/ensemble repertoire. Over the years this concert has been proven to give us all a musical palette change mid-season, and has provided the opportunity to focus more intimately on various sections of the orchestra. We love the change and hope you do too! I love every piece on this program. The playful optimism of Russell Peck’s Signs of Life II, with its obvious references to popular music, the blues, and a Copland-like Western sound, is great fun to play and a wonderful way to put everyone in the mood for the evenings selections. Next, the wind octet was a standard at parties and functions in the days of Mozart, but the master made writing for the octet not just cute, but a real art form in itself. Let’s face it, Mozart really knew how to write for wind instruments! The second half of the concert is all Sturm und Drang. The manic energy of Gluck’s Dance of the Furies is both exciting and a little bit terrifying. Then Haydn’s famous “Farewell” Symphony, which was written to help settle a bit of a labor dispute on behalf of his musicians, brings not only beautiful music but also visual effects. You’ll see what I mean, but if you don’t know this piece, I’m quite sure you will never forget it after witnessing it tonight.  As always, thank you for your support of the Bozeman Symphony. We couldn’t do it without such an appreciative audience of music lovers like you.  Cheers,

Matthew Savery Music Director and Conductor

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.

Program Notes by Alan Leech The music of this chamber orchestra concert features selected members of the Bozeman Symphony who will present a program of music that comes to us directly from the ‘Viennese classical period’ of musical composition from well over 200 years ago. There are some of our favorite Classical composers: Haydn, Mozart, and Glück. But why include something written in the 1980’s in this program? The Russell Peck piece does actually present a delightful twist based on the old classical music forms.

Russell Peck (1945-2009): Signs of Life II for String Orchestra (1983, 1986) Russell Peck was born in Detroit and was encouraged by his parents to be active in music. His father in particular (who was a singer), was a strong proponent of Russell’s interest in classical music. His early music education centered on Mozart and Beethoven and, as a youth, he studied piano as well as becoming very interested in writing music. A fascinating development in his listening interests started to influence his composition: the ‘Motown’ soul music sound of Detroit that surrounded him when he was young. His blending of the classical traditions with the engaging rhythms and richer harmonies of Motown became the basis for much of Peck’s musical work. The Signs of Life piece has become very popular through string orchestra performances around the world. Signs of Life (1983), was originally a twomovement piece, but in 1986 Peck added an Allegro first movement. This added movement is an excellent example of Peck’s music. It is based on classical form, but with delightful “updating” through Motown related harmonies, rhythmic treatments, and a few “special effects” from the strings. A quiet, romantic Arioso is provided for the second movement. At times lush, at others very reflective, the music builds dramatically to a climax and then, following a short syncopated episode, gradually retreats into the quietness of the opening.

A Scherzo, using what the composer refers to as “peckzicatto” technique, is honestly in good humor and seems to be constantly joking (which is of course exactly what the word ‘scherzo’ implies), using references to Motown soul music, the blues, and even ending with a reference to Beethoven’s Fifth.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791): Serenade No.11 in Eb, K.375 for Chamber Harmonie Ensemble (1781) Serenade, Divertimento, Cassation, and Notturno are all Eighteenth-Century alternative titles for lighter pieces of music, usually intended as background music for entertainment at court parties. If the music was intended for indoors, a string group might be scored, and if for a stroll through the garden or a party on the veranda, a wind group’s sound would carry better. A popular practice in the 18th Century was to arrange opera melodies for the ‘Chamber Harmonie Ensemble’ so that people became familiar with the tunes and music – essentially acting as advertisements for the opera performances or as reminders of a popular opera. The arrangements themselves became popular, made money for the arrangers, and often were created by the composers themselves. The pieces were played in the court gardens as “background” ambient music most often, but sometimes also in public houses, or even occasionally on street corners. The idea of these wind octets was so popular in well-to-do households that had their own orchestra on site, that composers were often asked to write music that was less “light entertainment” and more a “sit-down-and-listen” serious style. Serenade No.11 in Eb is one of these. Perhaps in order to not “be” a symphony, it has five movements, including two minuets, rather than the typical four movements of a symphony. The Chamber Harmonie was basically a wind octet (pairs of oboes, clarinets, bassoons, and horns, sometimes with the


Program Notes by Alan Leech continued addition of a contra-bassoon (or a string bass). These ensembles actually were the wind sections of the small court orchestras (without the flutes usually, since the serenade groups often played outdoors, where the wooden flute’s sound would be totally lost). Incidentally, there are a few marches written for these groups (with the court timpanist and/or string players beating drums), which were played to greet and welcome visitors to a court with flair. This was, in fact, the origin of the wind “band”. This Eb Serenade was written in 1781 and was first performed on St. Teresa’s Day in October. It was originally scored for just 6 instruments (2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, and 2 horns), but Mozart later added 2 oboes and rescored the piece to fill out the usual octet instrumentation.

Christoph Willibald Ritter von Glück (1714-1787): Dance of the Furies from Orphée et Eurydice (1774) The opera Orfeo ed Euridice is Glück’s most popular work and it was very influential on German operas that followed. Orfeo was the first of Glück’s ‘reform operas’ in which he replaced the awkward and involved plots and overly complex music of opera seria, the style that had been in vogue for some time, with a more “noble simplicity” in both the music and drama. It was first performed in Vienna in 1762 in the presence of the Empress Maria Theresa. It was when Glück later presented the opera in Paris in 1774, that he needed to make some changes to suit French tastes. One change was to give a large nod to the Parisian delight in ballet. The story of Orpheus follows the world’s greatest singer, who has just lost his wife, Eurydice, to death. He is so overcome with grief that he takes his instrument and descends into Hell to attempt to use his beautiful music to persuade the demonic forces to release his wife back to him in life. The ‘Dance of the Furies’ is presented at the end of the first scene of Act II, and was added to the revised French version of the opera. Orpheus

has descended into the deepest level of Hell, and is surrounded by the Furies who wish to deny him access to his wife’s spirit. Of course, he manages to eventually calm the Furies with his singing. The exciting Dance of the Furies that Glück added, not only gave a big opportunity for a dance, but also additional chance at showing off the complex machinery that was used to depict the smoke and flames of Hell.

In actuality, Glück simply lifted this dance from the end of his ballet Don Juan, where the principal character is dragged down into hell by a horde of demons. In Don Juan, the solemn ending intoned by the brass in a major key, represents a return to peace. Replaced into the Orpheus story, the ending of this dance serves a new purpose: as the Furies of Hell gradually fall back, we see Orpheus enter the Elysian Fields.

Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809): Symphony No. 45 in f# minor, Hob.I:no.45 (1772), “Farewell” Haydn is known as the “father of the symphony”. He is the person who managed to coalesce the idea of a symphony into a four-movement presentation, with expected forms for each movement. Still today composers follow his precepts in constructing symphonies. But Haydn did more than just come up with the idea of a “scherzo” or joke as the dance movement. Even though both he and his music were popular, he continued to employ various innovations. This symphony is an example of how unique a single Haydn symphony can be. First of all, the key of this symphony is very unusual for the Eighteenth Century: in fact, it is the only known work of that century to have been written in this f# minor. The key was so unusual, that Haydn had to order two special half-step tuning slides for his horn players to insert in their valve-less natural horns in order for them to play in the key. Besides the 2 horns, his small instrumentation includes 2 oboes, bassoon, and the strings. Continued on next page…


Program Notes by Alan Leech continued Secondly, the story behind the work is both touching and fascinating. Haydn and the members of his orchestra were in the employ of their patron Prince Nikolas Esterházy, and traveled with their patron from their home base in Eisenstadt to the Prince’s favorite summer palace at Eszterháza in rural Hungary. There was no place for most of the families of the musicians or the prince’s staff to live at the summer palace, so those in Esterházy’s employ would move there without their wives and families. And Eisenstadt was a day’s journey away. As the prince dallied longer and longer at his summer palace, the musicians became very anxious to return to home and went to their Kapellmeister, Haydn, to ask for help. Haydn told his biographers that he did not want to anger the Esterházy by making a direct appeal to return home, so he wrote this Symphony in order to deliver his message. The first movement is reflective of Haydn’s “Sturm und Drang” (Storm and Stress) period of writing. It is in the usual Sonata-Allegro form, but maintains practically all music in a minor key. Definitely storm and stress. In the Adagio, Haydn delivers a much calmer presentation. In fact the music seemingly becomes gradually more somber and meditative as it progresses. He often creates a yearning in the music by using dissonant suspensions (holding a note from a previous chord to create stress, before allowing it to resolve to a note that fits the new chord). The Minuet is in the unusual key of F# major. Although the music all seems to work out in even numbers of measures, it is calculated to have rather weak phrase endings to each section, which gives an odd sense of being incomplete. The last movement seems to be a rather typical Haydn ending movement: fast and exciting. However, instead of ending at the place that sounds like it ‘should’ end, Haydn attached an Adagio coda-like section that was unusual enough to immediately catch the Prince’s attention. Within that final Adagio, each musician was instructed to stop playing, snuff out the candle on his music stand, and leave in turn. Sometimes Haydn would give a little solo to bring attention to a player, just before his part

was finished and he exited. At the end, there were just two muted violins (originally this was Haydn himself, and his concertmaster) left on stage. Prince Esterházy must have received and completely understood the message, because he and his entire retinue returned to Eisenstadt the very next day following the performance.
