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, 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

Dear Friends, Welcome to the grand finale of our 49th concert season, and what a season it has been! From the grandeur of Nielsen’s Four Temperaments, to the beauty of Dvořák’s 8th symphony, to the fun of Holiday Collage, to the introspection of Haydn’s Farewell Symphony, to the profundity of Brahms’ Schicksalslied and Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, to tonight’s performance of Mahler, and coupled with an impressive roster of renowned guest artists, it has been a magical year of live Symphonic Music. We hope you enjoyed every moment, just as we did, and most of all we thank you for your continued support without which none of this would be possible.  Tonight, we welcome one of the world’s very special violin virtuosos, Stephanie Chase. Stephanie has enjoyed a major career, having performed with orchestras all over the world as well as in recital. She’s an extraordinary musician and it is a tremendous honor to have her on our stage. I know you will be wowed by her sound and her artistry. Approaching Mahler is always a bit of a herculean effort. Mahler always has a lot to say in his music, and for the performers it takes tremendous focus and stamina. Preparing a Mahler Symphony for performance can be intense and exhausting. As I said to the orchestra, “it’s a difficult mountain to climb, but it’s oh so worth it!” Come along with us. It’s going to be one heck of a ride! As we conclude our 49th concert season, we look to our 50th anniversary next year. Just think—50 years of live symphonic and choral music in the Gallatin Valley! We have much to celebrate, and for this we have planned a thrilling season of concerts—each a celebration of its own. We hope you’ll join the celebration as we look to the future, and another 50 years! 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.

Special Guest: Stephanie Chase, Violin

Stephanie Chase is internationally recognized as “one of the violin greats of our era” (Newhouse Newspapers) through solo appearances with over 170 orchestras that include the New York and Hong Kong Philharmonics and the Chicago, San Francisco, Atlanta, Baltimore, and London Symphony Orchestras. Her interpretations are acclaimed for their “elegance, dexterity, rhythmic vitality and great imagination” (Boston Globe), “stunning power” (Louisville Courier-Journal), “matchless technique” (BBC Music Magazine), and “virtuosity galore” (Gramophone). “Renowned for her impeccable intonation” (Temperament, Stuart Isacoff), her playing is also characterized by “great intensity and a huge tone, the epitome of the modern violinist” (The Baroque Cello Revival, Paul Laird). A top medalist of the prestigious VII International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow, Ms. Chase has performed concerts in twenty-five countries throughout the world and is a recipient of the esteemed Avery Fisher Career Grant. Equally at home in the virtuoso’s repertoire, historically-informed performance practice and contemporary music, Stephanie Chase offers an attractive repertoire of over 60 concertos and large works for violin and orchestra. As soloist she has collaborated with conductors that include Zubin Mehta, Leonard Slatkin, Herbert Blomstedt, Marin Alsop, Enrique Diemecke, Christopher Hogwood, Hugh Wolff and Stanislaw Skrowaczewski; with conductor Kenneth Schermerhorn, she was a featured soloist with the Hong Kong Philharmonic on its first trip ever to the People’s Republic of China. In recent seasons her performances have been selected as a “Classical Act of the Decade” (Courier-Journal, Louisville), one of “20 Concerts to Hear this Fall” (WQXR) and “Critics’ Choice” (Musical America). Stephanie Chase’s world premiere recording on period instruments of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto (featuring her own cadenzas) is “one of the twenty most outstanding performances in the work’s recorded history” (Beethoven: Violin Concerto; Cambridge University Press) and honored with the highest possible ratings by BBC Music Magazine and Classic CD, including “Record of the Month.” Other recordings by Ms. Chase have been selected by Stereophile as a “Record to Die For” and Gramophone for its “Hot List,” and include several world premieres. An advocate of contemporary music, Ms. Chase has premiered music by composers including Earl Kim, Edward Applebaum, Joan Tower, Yehudi Wyner, Richard Pearson Thomas, and Taavo Virkhaus.

Special Guest: Stephanie Chase, Violin

Stephanie Chase often performs in the dual roles of violin soloist and conductor, and she is recognized as a talented music arranger whose works are performed to rave reviews by the Perlman Music Program, The American String Project, the San Jose Chamber Orchestra, Boston Classical Orchestra, and the Music of the Spheres Society, among others. Additionally, renowned as a chamber musician whose festival appearances have included Bravo! Vail, Kuhmo, Bargemusic, and Caramoor, Ms. Chase is the Artistic Director of the Music of the Spheres Society, which presents chamber music concerts and lectures that are dedicated to “exploring the links between music, philosophy and the sciences” (The New Yorker). Born in Illinois, Stephanie Chase’s early violin teachers were her mother and Sally Thomas of The Juilliard School, and she was renowned as a child prodigy through concert performances starting at age two. She made her debut with the Chicago Symphony at eight and began extensive national concert touring while in her early teens. Following her Carnegie Hall debut at eighteen, she studied violin privately with Arthur Grumiaux and chamber music at the Marlboro Festival. Ms. Chase is currently a Professor of Violin and Chamber Music at New York University and previously taught at MIT and the Boston Conservatory. She is regularly invited to give master classes at prominent music conservatories that include Mannes, the University of Texas at Austin, The Frost School at the University of Miami, and the San Francisco Conservatory. She is a frequent judge for the violin concerto competitions at The Juilliard School, and recently judged for the Concorso Postacchini in Fermo, Italy, Concert Artists Guild String Competition, Hudson Valley String Competition, and Cooper International Violin Competition. Since 2012 she has been a music advisor for Dover Publications. Articles written by Ms. Chase have been published by The Strad and Strings Magazine, and she is a regular guest columnist for Stay Thirsty. Profiles of Ms. Chase have appeared in newspapers throughout the world and in such music journals as The Strad and Musical America, and her numerous television appearances include interviews for CBS “Morning News” and by Sir David Frost. More recently she has been profiled in Stay Thirsty, The Epoch Times, and Woman Around Town. Ms. Chase is a tenth-generation lineal descendant of Aquila Chase, who arrived from England about 1639 and is the founder of one of New England’s most important family lineages. Her current hobbies include studying the “music of the spheres” and the proportions of Stradivari violins, and researching her genealogy. Stephanie Chase plays an acclaimed violin made in Venice in 1742 by Petrus Guarnerius, which she pairs with a bow made by Dominique Peccatte.

Program Notes by Alan Leech The two works on this program make for an interesting comparison between works that were twenty years apart in their composition. The Bruch Concerto is an example of a piece in the true German romantic musical tradition of the day, fully in the camp of “Romantic Classicism,” as exemplified by the music of Johannes Brahms. The Mahler Symphony is more in the realm of the “new music” of the day, exemplified by Richard Wagner and Franz Liszt. Although Bruch broke from tradition somewhat by changing the usual form for his Concerto No.1, his romantic nature and romanticism is at the forefront of the work. There is, of course, also wonderful romantic melodicism in Mahler’s Symphony, but Mahler’s extension of the forms, the overblown dramatic presentation, along with a more Wagnerian approach to harmony, does contrast with Bruch’s style of romanticism.

Max Bruch (1838-1920) Concerto No. 1 for Violin in G minor, op. 26 (1866-7) Bruch had a long career as a teacher, conductor, and composer. In his own time, he was principally known as a choral composer, but today his works for string soloists (both violin and cello) are particularly popular. Following his “Kol Nidrei”, op.47 for cello and orchestra, his music was banned in Germany because he was suspected of being Jewish. That was not true, but the ban was the reason much of his music has been largely forgotten in German-speaking countries. This First Violin Concerto (of three), first performed in 1866, is one of the most popular solo works for violin in the repertoire. Following its premiere, the famous violinist Joseph Joachim helped Bruch with a considerable revision of the work to bring it to its current form, in which it was presented the next year. Incidentally, Joachim has the distinction of also advising and working with Johannes Brahms while Brahms was writing his own wonderful concerto for violin.

The first movement of the work is unusual in that it is labeled “Vorspiel”, and is not only an effective Prelude to the second movement, but it leads directly into the second without a break. The first movement starts off rather quietly, introducing the solo violin with a couple of short cadenzas. The movement presents two themes and ends as it began with the two cadenzas in a more virtuosic presentation. The second movement seems to truly be the heart of the concerto, with lovely melodies in the solo violin accompanied by a constantly flowing accompaniment by the orchestra. The last movement is built much like a lively dance, but with virtuosic demands of the soloist (brilliant double stops, fast moving passages). The form presents a second, less-active and more lyrical melody that interrupts a couple of times, but each time the piece returns to the more dance-like music with even more virtuosity for the soloist than before. The ending is an accelerando in a short space of time, getting faster, higher, and louder, leading to a rousing finish.

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911): Symphony No. 1 in D major (1887-8) “The Titan” The beautiful and exciting “Titan” Symphony is the first of nine and three-quarters symphonies penned by Mahler. The piece is certainly a tremendously impressive work to be the first symphony in the composer’s catalog. It is an interesting fact that composers generally have avoided (for whatever reason) writing more symphonies than Beethoven wrote. Perhaps writing a “Symphony No.10” would seem to proclaim that you were better than Beethoven, who only completed nine. And perhaps that would be asking for trouble from the cosmos. Of course, Mahler would be just the composer to want to tempt fate, and he started work on his Symphony No.10. Just as you might imagine, he died after completing only one movement - sometimes you get what you ask for.

Program Notes by Alan Leech continued Gustav Mahler almost always referred to the work on this concert by the title “Symphony” in his letters, but the first two performances listed it as a symphonic poem or a tone poem. Apparently, the first performance in 1889 was not very well received. Mahler then revised the work several times before its publication, but he only had used the label/title Titan for the two early performances (long before publication) and never after the work attained its present four-movement form. Nonetheless, the symphony is now known with this label and is usually identified with it on modern programs.

The last movement is very dramatic and honestly stormy: Stürmisch bewegt is the tempo indication, which translates to “stormy/ tumultuous, agitated/stirring.” There are brass fanfares and much excitement, calmed only a couple of times, with a beautiful bittersweet song-like melody of which Mahler is such a master, and there is also a short repeat of the bird calls from the first movement. But the otherwise relentless storm carries us through to the climactic moment of the final decisive notes.

Mahler was a fascinating character with a rather morbid view of life, whose music was usually imbued with both drama and a wonderful, bittersweet beauty. And his programmatic music often had subjects that would seem off-color to anyone with a healthy mental attitude. For instance his gorgeous songs for voice and orchestra include a whole song cycle with texts about dead children: definitely bittersweet. And who else would make a funeral dirge out of the children’s nursery song “Frère Jacques” as Mahler does in this symphony’s third movement? The first movement is very pastoral in its sonic setting, with intonations of long tones in octaves and sustained intervals in the introduction, leading into gentle song-like melodies, accompanied by bird songs (including the cuckoo as well as some imagined calls) in the woodwinds. Normally, or at least most often, in a typical fourmovement symphonic outline composers place the “slow” movement second and a “dance” movement third to liven things up following the slow movement. Mahler chooses to reverse these (as many composers occasionally did) and places the “dance” movement in the second position: it is a Landler and Trio: a folk dance in 3/4 meter). The “slow” movement is the sadly humorous treatment of “Frère Jacques” (or “Bruder Jacob”) as a funeral dirge.
