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.


A Letter from the Music Director and Conductor

Dear Friends, I’m so happy to welcome you to a new season with the Bozeman Symphony. This is our first year back in our newly renovated Willson Auditorium, and to celebrate we’ve planned a full year of exciting and fun symphonic experiences for you. We are also bringing some truly magnificent guest artists. I know you won’t want to miss a single moment of this wonderful year. We’re thrilled to welcome back our beloved concertmaster, Carrie Krause, after a two year leave to study at the Juilliard School of Music. Carrie is very special to all of us, and to celebrate her return we feature her in this program performing the beautiful solos in Scheherazade. In my entire career, I have never had as wonderful an artistic relationship, nor have I had more respect for any concertmaster than Carrie. I know you share our glee in her return, and will be as enchanted as we will be with her performance tonight. I had the privilege of working with pianist Chin-Yun Hu last year in Wyoming. She blew the roof off of the place, and I knew immediately that the people of Bozeman needed to be exposed to this magnificent artist. She has a powerful stage prescence and an even more powerful technique as pianist. Her Tchaikovsky is nothing short of stunning. I know she will wow you, and I’m deeply grateful to share a stage with her once again. Next month is Halloween and we’ll be having ourselves A Symphonic Spooktacular. PLEASE get into the spirit and come in costume. It should be great fun for all. For now, welcome once again and enjoy tonight’s performance. We are honored you are here! With every good wish!

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.

Special Guest: Ching-Yun Hu, piano

The distinguished Taiwanese pianist Ching-Yun Hu is recognized and acclaimed world-wide for her dazzling technique, deeply probing musicality and directly communicative performance style. Ching-Yun Hu was named a winner of the 2009 Concert Artists Guild International Competition. In 2008, she captured the top prize and the Audience Favorite Prize at the 12th Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Tel Aviv, resulting in a seven-city tour across Israel and a special invitation from the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto #4 on only a week’s notice. Subsequently, her career has flourished with a host of engagements on five continents. Highlights of Ching-Yun Hu’s current season includes debuts with the Bozeman and Topeka symphony orchestras, as well as Hungary’s Budafoki Dohnányi Zenekar. Ching-Yun Hu made her debut with The Philadelphia Orchestra in 1999. She has also been a guest soloist with the Aspen Concert Orchestra, New York Concerti Sinfonietta, Philadelphia’s Black Pearl Chamber Orchestra and the symphony orchestras of Delaware, DuPage (IL), Midland (MI), Mississippi Northwest Arkansas and Wyoming. While abroad she has appeared with the Israel Chamber Orchestra, England’s Maidstone Symphony Orchestra, Portugal’s Orquestra do Algarve, Brazil’s Orquestra Filarmônica do Espírito Santo, Orquestra do Curitiba, Orquestra Petrobras Sinfônica and Orquestra Experimental de Repertorio, South Africa’s Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, China’s Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra and Taiwan’s Taipei Chinese Orchestra and Evergreen Symphony Orchestra. She has also toured with the National Taiwan Symphony Orchestra. Recent recitals have included programs at New York City’s Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts’ Alice Tully Hall, Washington, DC’s John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Aspen Music Festival, London’s Wigmore Hall and Southbank Centre, Paris’ Salle Cortot, Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, Munich’s Herkulesaal, Budapest’s Franz Liszt Academy of Music, Poland’s Chopin International


Festival and Rubinstein Philharmonic Hall (Lodz), Tel Aviv’s Opera House, Taipei’s National Concert Hall and Japan’s Osaka Hall. Ms. Hu is also a frequent guest artist at distinguished music festivals throughout the world. Ching-Yun Hu’s debut recording, an all-Chopin CD released in 2011 on the Taiwanese label ArchiMusic, won Taiwan’s 2012 Golden Melody Award for Best Classical Album of the Year. The fall of 2013 saw the release of her second CD - music of Granados, Mozart and Ravel - on the CAG Records and Sony Music Taiwan labels. The next release from ArchiMusic is planned for 2013, featuring Beethoven’s Triple Concerto with Adrian Brendel, Grezgorw Kotwo and the Evergreen Symphony Orchestra. A native of Taipei, Ching-Yun Hu made her concerto debut at the age of 13 with the Poland Capella Cracoriensis Chamber Orchestra on tour in Asia. One year later, she moved to the United States to continue her musical studies at The Juilliard School in New York City, working principally with Sergei Babayan and Karl-Heinz Kammerling. She also studied chamber music with Joseph Kalichstein and Seymour Lipkin, and received additional guidance from Richard Goode and Murray Perahia. In 2008, Ching-Yun Hu was awarded an honorary prize from Taiwan’s Minister of Culture, recognizing her artistic achievements to date. In addition to performing, Ms. Hu is a keen advocate for the promotion of classical music. She founded the bi-annual Yun-Hsiang International Music Festival (www.yunhsiang.org ) and the Philadelphia Young Pianists Academy at the Curtis Institute of Music, inviting to both some of the most soughtafter artists from around the globe to perform at prestigious concert halls in Taipei and Philadelphia and to work with aspiring young musicians on their way to professional careers. Ching-Yun Hu serves on the Adjunct Faculty of the Esther Boyer College of Music and Dance at Philadelphia’s Temple University, where she is also Artist-in-Residence. www.chingyunhu.com

PROGRAM NOTES by Alan Leech

SCHEHERAZADE, op.35 (1888) by Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov

‘Scheherazade’ is a wonderful four-movement symphonic suite, based on a magical set of fantastic tales that caught the fancy of composer Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The collection of tales have been published in many versions and in many places as ‘The Thousand and One Nights’ or ‘The Arabian Nights’. The most well-known tales included in the collection are ‘Aladdin’s Lamp’, ‘Ali Baba and the 40 Thieves’, and ‘The 7 Voyages of Sinbad the Sailor.’ In the past century and a half, additional tales from a variety of Mid-East sources were included by European translators in newer editions. Some of the originals in Arabic contained only 100 or so tales, while other, more recent compilations have contained 1001 or even more. Many 19th Century readers across Europe and Russia were familiar with these books, and the tales are still widely read. As the framing story is told in all versions, the Sultan Shahryar had become mistrustful of women and their fidelity, so he had each of his wives killed after their wedding night. The Sultan’s Vizier was the person who was ordered to kill three wives and, when his own daughter seemed destined to follow as the next wife, tried to dissuade her from marrying the Sultan. The very clever girl Scheherazade married Shahryar in spite of her father, and yet managed to preserve her life by telling the Sultan stories each night from songs, folk tales, or history, arranging to end each evening’s story-telling with a “cliff-hanger.” The Sultan kept putting off her death for 1001 nights, until he finally forswore his resolution. That basic story is set in Persia (known today as Iran), sometime during the 3rd Persian Empire lasting from the year 224 to 651, which at that time reached all the way to India. The name Scheherazade means “of noble birth” and her husband, Sultan Shahryar’s name basically means “king,” so we don’t really know if they were fictional people, or perhaps even composites of several individuals. Rimsky-Korsakov did not intend for his piece to be accurately programmatic, although he did unify it with a couple of melodies. The most recognizable is the Scheherazade melody of triplets, as played first by the solo violin, and is repeated several times throughout the four movements. The other recurring melody represents the Sultan and is heard in the opening forceful unison statement by the orchestra. Many of the other melodies in the piece are spin-offs of those two main melodies, and even though program writers have tried to assign each melody to a character, this was not Rimsky-Korsakov’s intent. He wrote in his autobiography, “The program in composing this work consists of separate, unconnected episodes and pictures from The Arabian Nights, scattered throughout the movements of my suite.”


PROGRAM NOTES (CONTINUED):

He simply tried to create fantastic music to evoke Mid-East flavor, and although he originally gave simple working titles to each movement, he then decided to remove them from future performances. He wanted to give free reign to the images forming in the listeners’ minds, obviously wanting them to enjoy the sounds more as a travel vehicle, than either as a ‘symphony’ or an actual story. His delightful, multi-colored orchestrations with brilliant use of various parts of the orchestra (including several solo instruments besides the violin), and the vibrancy of the imagined tales, are sufficient to transport the audience. In fact, he decided to not present any titles of movements on printed programs after the first performance. So, the titles of the four movements as they are now given, do refer to the tales, characters, or places, but they should not actually prompt us to imagine a story line. Yes, this is very programmatic music, and one thing is certain: in the first movement as Rimsky-Korsakov is depicting the rolling seas, we can really sense the magnificence and drama of the waves. He dearly loved the sea and was, in fact, an officer in the Russian Navy. PIANO CONCERTO NO.1 IN Bb minor, op.23 (1874-5) by Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky

The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto in Bb minor, the first of three concertos for the piano, is world-famous and displays much of that colorful and explosive orchestration of Russian Composers in the latter 19th Century. Tchaikovsky had hoped that the premiere performance of this concerto would be by the Russian pianist Nicholas Rubenstein, who was Director of the Moscow Conservatory where Tchaikovsky was a member of the faculty. However, after Tchaikovsky played through the piece for Rubenstein, the Director attacked the work, proclaiming it “worthless and unplayable,” and insisting that Tchaikovsky rewrite large parts of the work. Of course, that request was refused. That disagreement brought Tchaikovsky to the German pianist Hans von Bülow. Bülow agreed to play the piece, and was making an American tour at the time, so the actual premier of the work was in Boston in 1875. It was a tremendous success in the U.S. and has become one of Tchaikovsky’s most well-known works. It does present Russian style and flavor, with great drama and contrast. Tchaikovsky was one of the finest melodicists of the 19th Century, but he did include some folk melodies in the material for this work. The Nineteenth-Century Concerto is always a vehicle for a virtuoso soloist with an orchestra in atttendance. In the hands of Brahms, the Piano Concerto found a grand form that was almost a Symphony with the piano becoming, in essence, almost another section of the orchestra.


PROGRAM NOTES (CONTINUED):

Tchaikovsky, unlike Brahms, seems to look at a Concerto as more akin to a Duel than a Duet between the soloist and the orchestra. In the beginning of this Concerto, the orchestra presents a challenge to the piano, with a crashing set of chords, which are then answered by the pianist. Those crashing chords, now in the piano, become the accompaniment for a beautiful, unforgettable melody in the strings – an introduction melody that is never repeated throughout the rest of the Concerto! The first movement duel proceeds with a faster theme, a rather choppy tune reportedly derived from a Ukrainian folk song that Tchaikovsky heard sung by a blind beggar at a fair. Later, a more graceful melody appears, all presented to show off the pianist’s great prowess, bravura, and mastery. The beautiful second movement of the Concerto seems to find the ‘duel’ tamed to simplicity, innocence, and cooperation between the soloist and accompaniment. The tender opening theme repeats with different settings and accompaniments. In the middle of this movement, Tchaikovsky treats us to a sort of scherzo section, which reportedly is based on a French street song. The final movement is once again more of a contest with the orchestra, starting with a very lively dance, again of possible Ukrainian origin. The most important of the other themes is an expansive melody, which is related in mood to that wonderful introduction melody of the 1st movement. Tchaikovsky always proclaimed this work to be his favorite of all his piano compositions. His written-out cadenzas show delightful, rather improvisatory development, and this virtuosic work has remained one of the all-time favorites of audiences everywhere.

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
