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 (MT) 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, Eric Ruske, 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 two year old son Adam.


Anne Harrigan — Guest Conductor The Bozeman Symphony is proud to welcome guest conductor Anne Harrigan. Anne Harrigan, Music Director of the Billings Symphony Orchestra & Chorale and the Battle Creek Symphony Orchestra and Artistic Director of the Music Center of South Central Michigan, has earned a reputation throughout the country for her innovative programming, commitment to artistic excellence and community engagement. Her commitment to innovation in programming has resulted in ground-breaking multi-disciplinary programs that have attracted national attention. These include the United States premiere of Shaun Davey’s “A Brendan Voyage,” a concerto for uilleann pipes and orchestra with the renowned piper Christopher Layer; collaborations with Alexander Streltsov, aerialist; silent movies with live orchestra; live video projections of performances; Peter Boyer’s “Ellis Island: Dream of America, ” a chronicle of the journey of seven immigrants through Ellis Island; and collaborations with late Montana photographer, Michael Sample. Ms. Harrigan began her career at the age of 19 when she founded the Johns Hopkins University Chamber Orchestra while still a violin student at the Peabody Institute of Music. She received her Master’s degree in conducting at Yale University under the tutelage of Otto Werner Mueller. In 1983, Ms. Harrigan formed the Baltimore Chamber Orchestra and developed it from a fledgling organization to one of the finest chamber orchestras in the country. Her interactive, multi-disciplinary family concert, “Colors of the World”, produced for television by Maryland Public Television, was recognized with an Emmy award in 1998. In addition, the BCO’s first compact disc recording, “Baltimore Chamber Orchestra Live,” received rave reviews. Ms. Harrigan resides in Rockford, Michigan with her husband, Eric Hudson and daughter, Erin. When not conducting, she enjoys bicycling and cross-country skiing.

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.

Tuning into the Orchestra: Amber Greymorning, french horn, and Ben Refling, french horn

Bozeman Symphony Orchestra welcomes two new members to the French Horn section, Amber Greymorning and Ben Refling. Originally from Missoula, Amber has a BME from the University of Montana and is the new music instructor at Ridge View Elementary School in Belgrade. Ben grew up in Bozeman, obtained his BA from St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota and his JD from the University of Colorado Law School in Boulder. He is an attorney in private practice, with most of his work centering around commercial construction litigation. Amber loves the repertoire Maestro Savery has chosen for this year and is appreciating the camaraderie within the orchestra. Ben enjoys working collaboratively with fellow orchestra members to create emotionally and artistically compelling experiences, for musician and audience alike. When not teaching music or playing in the symphony, Amber enjoys dancing, arts and crafts, writing and reading poetry, and playing with her puppy Coda! Ben enjoys hiking, writing literary non-fiction, playing pub trivia, and spending time with his dog, Freddie. Both of our new horn players are truly enjoying the community of Bozeman, their careers, and playing in the symphony. Bozeman loves having you both in the Bozeman Symphony!

Welcome Amber Greymorning and Ben Refling!


PROGRAM NOTES by Alan Leech

Tonight’s concert is pretty much intended for having fun. Halloween is supposed to deal with the ‘scary’ side of life (and death), and therefore many of the pieces on this program make an attempt to present something to frighten us. But, then again, other pieces on this program are simply intended to sound magical. Many composers have tried to depict the idea of a Witches’ Sabbath, with the gathering of demons at midnight on Saint John’s Eve (around the Summer Solstice in June), or on All Hallows Eve (at the end of October), so it is no surprise to find several of those pieces on a Halloween program. It is also no surprise to find that the composers represented have occasionally made use of the Dies Irae (the Day of Wrath) melody from the Mass for the Dead, composed sometime in the Middle Ages. Composers also like to create pieces that depict magical happenings, where music can give the mind room to imagine new or strange ideas, or simply help tell a fantastic tale. If the program this evening tickles your fancy in any way, you can be assured that the Bozeman Symphony will be all the happier, and certainly will feel enchanted. A WITCHES’ SABBATH (from Symphonique Fantastique, op.14, 1830) by Hector BERLIOZ

This first work comes from the five-movement ‘Symphonie Fantastique’ that Berlioz wrote to attract the attention of Harriet Smithson, a beautiful actress he fell in love with after seeing her in performance. Each movement presented a story of ‘the young artist’ (Berlioz himself) falling completely under the spell of opium because of his hopeless love; and in the fifth, last movement, dreaming that he was at a Witches’ Sabbath with shades and demons dancing all around him. The presiding witch torturing him appears to be his beloved. Believe it or not, the disturbing story did manage to catch Ms. Smithson’s attention and, after a long period, they were eventually married. Perhaps the prominent Dies Irae theme in the lower instruments that Berlioz included so ominously in the work worked its nastiness, because the married pair separated after a couple of years of unhappiness. NIGHT ON BALD MOUNTAIN (1867) by Modest MUSSORGSKY

Here is another musical setting of a Witches’ Sabbath that occurs on St. John’s Eve. The assembled witches, demons, and evil beings, revel in the appearance of their leader, Satan. Mussorgsky never heard a performance of his piece, although he tried to present it several times. The premiere of the work finally took place finally five years after he died, in a performance in 1886 conducted by Rimsky-Korsakov, who also presented it in a publication at that same time. Some claim that Mussorgsky’s piece was completely rewritten (or even just ‘written’) by Rimsky-Korsakov, but since it is the only version we now have, we may never know for certain. Rimsky-Korsakov did give full credit to Mussorgsky.


PROGRAM NOTES (CONTINUED): FUNERAL MARCH OF A MARIONETTE (1872, orch.1879) by Charles GOUNOD

This piece was originally written in 1872 for solo piano, and later orchestrated in 1879. I’m sure that many people may remember the piece as the theme music for TV’s Alfred Hitchcock Presents in the 1950’s and 60’s, as played by bassoon quartet. The piece is intended to describe the cortége or funeral procession to honor a marionette who has been killed in a duel. In the middle of the work, we are to imagine that the principal personages in the march stop for refreshments before continuing. There is an awkwardness, as well as a wry, humorous aspect to the work. VIOLIN CONCERTO, op. 14 (1939): Movement I. Allegro, by Samuel BARBER

Barber’s Violin Concerto was started in the summer of 1939. Barber had traveled to Switzerland in order to work on the commission, but all Americans were warned to leave Europe due to the impending war. This sent him to France, and then back to the U.S. With the enforced traveling, the illness of Barber’s father, and the criticisms of the intended young soloist’s violin coach, completing the work by deadline was made very difficult for Barber. In the end, the Concerto was premiered by another violinist, but has since proven its beauty and appeal through many performances and recordings. The interplay between soloist and orchestra seems very much like a serious, considered discussion, not at all like a contest or argument. DANSE MACABRE, op. 40 (1874) by Camille SAINT-SAËNS

According to French legend, Death appears at midnight every year on Halloween and calls forth the dead from their graves to dance to his violin playing, until the rooster crows at dawn, at which time they must return to their graves. Saint-Saëns’ piece opens with a harp sounding the 12 strokes of midnight, and closes with the oboe sounding the cock’s crow to pointedly follow this story. The Dies Irae is also heard prominently in this piece, and it is even turned into a sort of humorous fugue that is bounced back and forth for a while between instruments in high and low ranges. HEDWIG’S THEME (from Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone, 2001) by John WILLIAMS

John Williams, the outstanding and talented film composer, has often made use of a technique developed in the 19th Century by Richard Wagner. Wagner used melodies to identify with particular characters, places, or things in his operas. He referred to one of these melodies as a leitmotif. Whenever one of these melodies would appear in the orchestra it signified either a reference to, or an appearance of the object, sometimes even presaging its appearance. Williams has used this technique often: I think of his film scores for Jaws or for E.T. The first, floating melody, as well as the second tune with repeated short notes, together comprise most of this final portion


PROGRAM NOTES (CONTINUED):

of the ‘end credit music’ of the Sorcerer’s Stone film, as played on this concert. This leitmotif theme, and several other musical motives that he uses in this film, return again in the later films in the series, just like in Wagner’s Ring. The music identified by John Williams as ‘Hedwig’s Theme’ depicts Harry Potter’s owl with music that is at once, magical, delicate, and powerful. But Williams, in fact, also uses all, or at least a recognizable portion, of this theme throughout this film from beginning to end, whenever he wishes to refer to anything magic or magical. It is very much a unifying musical theme to both the score and the story. HEXENRITT (Witch’s Ride) (from Hansel und Gretel, 1891-2) by Engelbert HUMPERDINCK

Humperdinck’s “fairy tale” opera, ‘Hansel und Gretel,’ was, of course, based on the Grimm Brothers’ story. The libretto for the opera was written by Humperdinck’s sister, Adelheid Wette. The opera is known particularly for its folk-music-inspired musical melodies. The two hungry children go into the forest together to find food, but unfortunately the Gingerbread Witch (literally the “Nibbling Witch”) lives there. This Witch is known to lure children to her house made of gingerbread and candy, to capture them. The Witch’s Ride is the connecting music between Act I and Act II, and allows for an uninterrupted performance of the opera. At this point in the tale, the children have found some strawberries and are about to eat them, while their parents rush into the forest to find Hansel and Gretel. The Nibbling Witch is coming to tempt and then trap them within her tasty residence of gingerbread. PEER GYNT, Suite no. 1, op. 46 (1874) by Edvard GRIEG

‘In the Hall of the Mountain King’ and ‘Aese’s Death’ are two pieces from the music written by Edvard Grieg for the five act play by Henrik Ibsen. Ibsen asked Grieg to write incidental music for a presentation of the play, and later Grieg extracted two concert suites from that music, which have become quite popular. In Act II, Peer Gynt, a rather confused and purposeless young man, visits the Mountain Hall of the trolls, guided by the daughter of the King of the Mountain. The mysterious beginnings of this slow march lead gradually on to a tremendous orchestral climax. The troll king helps Peer Gynt develop an approach to life: not “To thyne own self be true”, but “Be true to yourself, and to hell with the world.” After his mother, Aese, dies in Act III, Peer travels to Morocco, Greece, Turkey, and Egypt, before returning home to Norway as an old man. When he is shipwrecked, several characters (including the Devil) argue to decide what to do with him.


L’APPRENTI SORCIER (The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, 1896-7) by Paul DUKAS

The French composer Paul Dukas found his inspiration for the Sorcerer’s Apprentice in a poem written by the German poet Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in 1797. This is by far, Dukas’ most widely known and performed work, and it truly demonstrates his great talent as an orchestrator. The story itself is well portrayed in the score as the apprentice of a sorcerer decides to try a little magic on his own in order to accomplish his chores. He starts by charming a broomstick to carry water, which is clearly heard in the slowly animating sounds starting in the bassoon section. But things get totally out of hand as the broom will not stop and water is everywhere. The swirling sounds in the orchestra become almost overwhelming and the apprentice desperately tries to stop the broom by chopping it in two, but then suddenly there are two brooms carrying water, and faster than ever before. Finally, the master himself appears and commands the hectic activity to stop, and the water to dissipate. The story was memorably presented in the Walt Disney cartoon movie Fantasia in 1940, with Mickey Mouse ‘playing’ the young apprentice.

Elise Donohue: A Remembrance

On May 21, 2015 the Bozeman Symphony, as well as all of us who love this community and value its artistic and cultural vibrancy, lost a true friend and champion. Elise Donohue: friend, neighbor, and generous underwriter of many of the things we value in our community, passed away that day, leaving us all in shock and mourning. Elise Rosenberry Donohue, a Minnesota native and great granddaughter of Frederick Weyerhaeuser, the timber baron, spent 39 years cattle ranching and raising horses on her ranch west of Clyde Park. In many ways, she was worldly and sophisticated but at core, she was modest and down-to-earth, out pitching hay and feeding her horses on cold, windy Montana mornings, and joining friends for regular lunches at the Clyde Park Tavern. Although she received most of her medical care in Bozeman or out of state, she recently made a very generous gift to Livingston HealthCare toward the building of its new hospital and clinic. The reason? Because she wanted to make sure that her rancher friends and neighbors would have ready access to high quality health care. In addition to supporting the Bozeman Symphony, Elise almost singlehandedly rescued the Ellen Theatre from the wrecking ball. She was a major underwriter of Montana Shakespeare in the Parks and Shakespeare in the Schools, and a significant supporter of the Museum of the Rockies, the Intermountain Opera, and the Kaleidoscope Youth Theater among many other organizations that serve our community. Elise was also a major donor to Montana State University, including a lead gift toward the University’s American Indian Center. Her friends and neighbors, without exception, loved Elise and will miss her. But those of us who knew of her many quiet and generous contributions to the arts are deeply saddened. We have lost one of our greatest patrons. We will miss Elise more than we can say; she was a great soul. Denis J. Prager Member, Board of Directors
