PSO Offers Students A Class Act Education

31

While some children gain access to the talents of the Paducah Symphony Orchestra through family and friends, many more children have few opportunities to experience the richness and depth of feeling that a live performance of a symphonic orchestra can convey. That’s what makes PSO’s partnership with the Carson Center’s Class Acts Education Series so meaningful.

From PSO Executive Director Reece King

I

t is with great pride but also with humility that I write my first opening letter for Score as Executive Director. I have watched and learned in various roles with the PSO over the past thirty years and I believe our best days are in front of us. We have a fantastic staff in place and many exciting things in the planning stages. I would like to thank Katie Smith for her service to the PSO over the last year and wish her the best as she and Doug begin their family. I would also like to thank her for making the transition as seamless as possible. She has once again exhibited her deep dedication to the PSO. It’s hard to believe that the John Williams program is finally here! Our community has been excited about this concert for quite some time. It will be a spectacular event that you will not want to miss, as your PSO brings these familiar themes to life on stage at the Carson Center. Equally exciting is our next concert, The Firebird on March 10th. We are thrilled to welcome guest artist Michael Klotz, who you can read more about on page 25. Belshazzar’s Feast will conclude our 2017-2018 season on April 14th, featuring the Symphony Chorus along with the Murray State and UT Martin choirs. What a spring line up with so many pieces that are favorites of performers and concertgoers alike. I’m also excited for our upcoming annual summer camp to be held June 18-22 at McCracken County High School. There will be more details forthcoming throughout the spring, but rest assured we are planning a superb camp experience that area students will not want to miss! The PSO summer camp has become, and will continue to be a staple of our vibrant education programming. The PSO staff, board and education committee are committed to continuing and improving our educational offerings. Lastly, I would like to express gratitude for the support of the Paducah Symphony Board of Directors as we begin a new phase in our journey. I sincerely thank those who have given words of encouragement. To those patrons with whom I have yet to interact, I hope to meet each one of you and have many conversations in the future. Looking forward to seeing you at the concert!

REECE KING PSO’s Executive Director By Jessica Perkins

E

and management background is very helpful to me in this new role. There are two sides to this job: the artistic side and the administrative side. I have existed in both worlds and that is a benefit to me and to the organization.”

very once in a while, an organization has the honor and good fortune to hire an aptly qualified director found within its ranks. In November of last year, the Paducah Symphony Orchestra’s Finance Manager and Orchestra Personnel Manager, Reece King, was appointed the organization’s new Executive Director.

In addition to his professional and volunteer duties serving the PSO, Reece has played trombone in the Orchestra for 30 years, alongside his wife, Rhonda, who plays trumpet. Rhonda also serves as the PSO librarian.

Reece’s professional credentials and reputation within Western Kentucky’s musical community made him a natural candidate for the job. “Reece will be a great Executive Director for the Paducah Symphony Orchestra. He’s been part of the PSO family for three decades, in various roles. He knows the musicians and works well with the Artistic Director, and he’s very skilled in managing finances. All of us on the Board of Directors are excited about Reece leading this organization,” Board President Clay Howerton says. Reece says he is taking on this new leadership role at a good time in the history of the Orchestra. He believes PSO is well-positioned to build on the solid foundation that previous conductors, directors and board members have established. “We are very fortunate to have a professional orchestra in Paducah, let alone one that is of such a high caliber and one that includes such a talented conductor,” Reece says. Over the last 17 years, Reece has served as the Orchestra’s Personnel Manager. It has been his job to hire and retain orchestra members since that time. About a year ago, he took on the role of PSO’s Finance Manager. These positions, matched with a long list of other credentials have prepared Reece to take on the expanded duties required of an Executive Director. “A non-profit organization that is not ‘profitable’ will be out of business,” Reece says very seriously. “So, having a finance

For nearly 30 years, Reece and Rhonda have shared their love of music and their talents with PSO, even during the years when the couple owned and operated a Paducah-based music store. Reece has spent many years as an educator and Orchestra Director in the region’s public schools. He currently serves as the Orchestra Director at a local church. Reece’s love of music extends back to childhood when he was introduced to the world of music by his father, who was then a song leader in a local church. Reece also credits his childhood band director as a major influence, a teacher who introduced him to the trombone and nurtured his interests there. “I found something I could do and excelled at it,” Reece recalls. “I just started going down that path.” Reece holds a Bachelor of Music in Music Education and a Bachelor of Arts from Murray State University. He also earned a Master of Music degree from the University of Minnesota. Reece continues to play the trombone and pursues interests outside of his role as Executive Director. He has two children, Natalie and Nathan. Reece hopes that his diverse background and leadership skills will allow the PSO to continue to fulfill its mission to present fine classical music and engaging arts education to Paducah and the surrounding community.

Michael Klotz

T

he viola was not the obvious choice for musician Michael Klotz. As the son of a violinist, it seemed natural that he would study violin as well. During his third year at Eastman School of Music, Klotz began playing the viola on the side, and soon decided to study both instruments. In 2002, he became one of the few individuals to be awarded a double Master’s Degree in violin and viola from the Julliard School, where he was the recipient of the Tokyo Foundation and Gluck Fellowships.

After graduation, Klotz joined the Amernet String Quartet, and has toured with the ensemble in countries such as Israel, Romania, and Spain. “Being in a quartet is incredibly fulfilling. My career has happened because of it,” Klotz says. “The big thing for a violist is ‘are you going to try and play in a big orchestra or a quartet?’ In being with the Amernet, I get to do both. My main gig is playing with the quartet, but I’ve been called to a number of different performances, both as a violinist and a guest chamber musician. I enjoy the freedom and diversity that comes with it.” This diversity has allowed Klotz to perform as a guest violist with the Shanghai, Ying, and Borromeo String Quartets, and collaborate with artists such as Shmuel Ashkenasi, Gary Hoffman, and Arnold Steinhardt. He has also performed at a number of festivals, including ChamberFest Cleveland, Festival Mozaic, and the Martha’s Vineyard Chamber Music Summer Festival. “I’m very fortunate that I’ve been able to play with some of the finest musicians. I’ve played with James Ehnes, the director of the Seattle Chamber Music Society and one of the greatest

soloists on the scene today. Having the opportunity to play with people like him and Augustine Havelich, and other violinists of that caliber—superheroes of the musical world—has been the best learning experience. It helps me become a better player and a better musician.” Along with the Amernet and his guest performances, Klotz is Senior Instructor and Artist-in-Residence at Florida International University in Miami, where he teaches viola and chamber music. Despite their close proximity, Klotz and Maestro Ponti connected through Facebook first, before meeting in person. “It was recommended Sofia Ponti take violin lessons with me. I’m proud to say I switched her over to viola. Raffaele taught at FIU for a year, as well, and we became very good friends,” Klotz says. “I’m honored he’s asked me to perform. I’ve performed a lot of concerts with the same people who have been guest musicians with the Paducah Symphony Orchestra. I’ve played with Franklin Cohen, who performed with the PSO last year, and next year I’ll be playing with Eugenia Zukerman, who was a guest musician. It’s a small world, and I think it’s neat that Raffaele tries to keep it all in the family.” Klotz will be performing Brahms’ Viola Concerto No.1, originally a sonata for clarinet or viola. This orchestration by Luciano Berio was commissioned by the Los Angeles Philharmonic in 1986. In an interesting twist, rather than reading from paper sheet music, Klotz will be reading from an iPad, a tool he learned with the Amernet Quartet. Michael Klotz resides in Hallandale Beach, FL with his wife Kelly and sons Jacob and Nathan, as well as two dogs and a cat.

ABOUT THE MUSIC

THE FIREBIRD SATURDAY • MARCH 10, 2018

MAURICE RAVEL (1875-1937). MA MÈRE L’OYE SUITE. In the summer of 1910, Ravel fled the stifling heat of Paris for relief in the suburban countryside. His destination was the summer retreat of the Godebskis, a Polish family of wellconnected arts patrons. Following the death of Ravel’s father, the Godebskis and their young children would become a second

family to the lifelong bachelor. Mimie, the older of the two Godebski children, wrote that Ravel “used to tell marvellous stories. I would sit on his knee and indefatigably he would begin ‘Il était une fois…’ [‘Once upon a time…’].” From these stories sprang Ma mère l’Oye (Mother Goose), a suite of five programmatic pieces for two pianos. Ravel dedicated the work to the two children hoping they would premiere it, but both were too shy to perform the work in public. Shortly after its premiere, Ravel’s publisher convinced him to orchestrate the piano suite. Following its success, he further

expanded the work for the ballet. Serge Diaghilev, famous impresario of the Ballets Russes whose Firebird brought Igor Stravinsky overnight fame, asked Ravel if he could produce his own version of Ma mère l’Oye. Ravel unequivocally declined, worried that Diaghilev’s penchant for spectacle would overwhelm his admittedly “modest” work. Each of Ma mère l’Oye’s movements tells a different story. The first four are based on famous French fairy tales, while the fifth, Le jardin féerique (The Fairy Garden), is one of Ravel’s own imagination. Ravel’s music is decidedly French, lushly orchestrated with a wide palette of colors and perfumed with dense, Impressionistic chords. The Pavane of Sleeping Beauty is a subdued processional, its air heavy with sleep. Solo flute represents the sleeping princess. Tom Thumb, the subject of the second movement, is depicted in the reedy sounds of the English horn. The music reveals longing and disorientation; Ravel notes in the score that “[Tom] believed he’d easily find his way because of the bread that he’d strewn all along his path; but he was very surprised to find not a single crumb: the birds [Ravel includes their high chirps among the woodwinds] had come and eaten everything.” Traditionally Asian musical gestures such as pentatonic scales, breathy flute solos, and crashing cymbals accompany Laideronnette, the ugly princess of the pagodas. In the frenetic pitched percussion, Ravel makes overt reference to Javanese gamelan music, which had enchanted both him and Claude Debussy at the 1889 Paris Exposition. The fourth movement narrates the tale of Beauty and the Beast, a lilting waltz

that sets the graceful clarinet against the gnarled, descending chromatic lines of the contrabassoon. The music grows more impassioned until a dramatic moment of transformation: an upward harp glissando, tinkling triangle, and the ethereal sounds of violin harmonics mark the Beast’s return to human form. Dissonant clustered chords, dream-like and rapturous, end the movement. In The Fairy Garden, Ravel’s use of the celesta recalls Tchaikovsky’s famous “Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy.” Lyrical, beautiful yet solemn, the music in Ravel’s fairy garden grows to a thundering climax. JOHANNES BRAHMS (1833-1897) VIOLA CONCERTO NO. 1 IN F MINOR, ARRANGED BY LUCIANO BERIO. Following the successful premiere of his Second String Quintet in 1890, a fifty-sevenyear-old Johannes Brahms resigned himself to a life of quiet retirement. Though in good health, he had, in his own words, “clearly said [his] farewell as a composer.” Then, in 1891, he heard a performance by the celebrated clarinetist Richard Mühlfeld, whose warm and burnished tone captivated the composer. Brahms and Mühlfeld quickly struck up a friendship and professional collaboration: over the next several years Brahms would compose four works for “Fräulein Klarinette” (his playful nickname for Mühlfeld), including his only clarinet sonatas. Musicologist Jan Swafford called these compositions “the only true love songs to an instrument Brahms ever wrote.”

new music considered too “radical” or “cosmopolitan” was prohibited. In this dearth of contemporary composers, Berio’s father and grandfather—both trained musicians—reared him on the music of the old masters. It was under their tutelage that the young Berio first became familiar with Brahms’ chamber works. The end of World War II precipitated a cultural thaw across Italy; in its wake, Berio ravenously consumed the works of hitherto banned “modernist” composers. Berio’s fascination with the musical avant garde led him to co-found the Studio di fonologia musicale, a space to create experimental electronic music alongside existing studios in Paris and Cologne. Yet his deep admiration for the composers of the past led him to create arrangements of their works, in which he often eschewed modern compositional techniques in favor

of traditional harmonies, structures, and instrumentation. As in Brahms’ original, the solo part may be performed by either clarinet or viola. Berio’s arrangement begins with a short orchestral introduction not found in the Sonata, yet the majority of the composition hews very closely to the original: harmonies and accompanimental figures follow those written for the piano, and the solo part remains virtually identical to that written for Mühlfeld. The viola’s lyrical, melancholic opening gives way to contrasts of passion and quiet resignation. Timpani and high strings heighten the sense of drama, but if the orchestration ever threatens to overwhelm the intimacy of Brahms’ sonata, Berio deftly manages the movement’s more tender, tranquil passages. The second movement, an extended daydream, features a delightful interplay

ABOUT THE MUSIC of woodwind timbres not found in the original and allows the soloist to showcase the entire range of their instrument. In the third movement, a playful peasant dance gives way to a short middle section in F minor where Brahms highlights the dark, amber tones of the viola’s lower register. A three-note fanfare launches the sprightly vivace. Brahms winds this three-note figure throughout the movement like signposts. Listening to this energetic finale, it isn’t hard to picture the aging Brahms— grey-bearded and portly—sitting at the keyboard, brimming with excitement, drawn out of retirement by the irrepressible spirit of collaboration and creation.

into his adult life, after many other composers have ended their formal training. In 1861, his teacher Otto Kitzler introduced him to the music of Richard Wagner. The radical harmonies, lush orchestrations, and emotionally charged themes captivated Bruckner’s imagination, and under Kitzler’s tutelage he would compose his first major orchestral works, including the G minor Overture. Bruckner poses a somewhat vexing problem for music scholars. His lack of self-confidence lent him a tendency to revise his published works multiple times. While the Overture exists in only two forms, it is not unusual for Bruckner’s

PADUCAH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA—SCORE FEB/MAR 2018

works to have several competing editions; his Third Symphony, for example, exists in at least six versions. His indecisiveness proved problematic even for Bruckner. Upon meeting Richard Wagner, his idol, he asked the elder composer which version of the Third he liked best, but Bruckner got so drunk during their meeting that he forgot Wagner’s answer! Despite its title, Bruckner conceived the Overture as merely a “school exercise,” unlinked to any larger works. Wagner’s influence over the burgeoning composer is evident from the first bars. Opening with a thundering, unison G, a solo cello emerges, its chromatically-tinged melody winding upward without resolution. Vacillating between darkness and light, sometimes jarringly, Bruckner’s music shows a composer still seeking his own voice, yet in this work there exists a depth


of emotion that foreshadows Bruckner’s artistic maturation.

IGOR STRAVINSKY (1882-1971). SUITE FROM THE FIREBIRD (1919 VERSION). As the first decade of the twentieth century drew to a close, Paris stood on the eve of a revolution in ballet. Russian impresario Serge Diaghilev, sensing that the genre had grown stale, imported Russian dancers, scenarios, and composers to the city to capitalize on the French aristocracy’s fascination with Russia and the “exotic East.” Following those successes, Diaghilev sought to create new, uniquely Russian works to enchant Parisian audiences. For the first of these, Diaghilev and his collaborators stitched together two old Slavic folktales: that of Koschei the Deathless, an evil sorcerer, and the tale of the Firebird, a mythical creature that brings fortune and devastation to its captor.

The ballet opens with ominous, murky bass ostinatos, rising and falling against the steady throbbing of timpani. Stravinsky uses the darkest, lowest instruments in the orchestra to create a mysterious and somewhat grotesque soundscape, adding unusual orchestral sounds to stunning effect. The ethereal screeches of the string glissandi were one of the composer’s favorite moments in the entire score. The music of the Firebird is unpredictable and frenetic, much like the creature herself. Dissonant and filled with off-kilter rhythms, the music flutters and darts about like an enraged bird. The handsome Prince Ivan ensnares the Firebird, who offers him an enchanted feather that can summon her in time of need. Stravinsky contrasts the harshly dissonant music surrounding the Firebird with the tender and lyrical Rondo of the Princesses. As Prince Ivan

dances with one of the beautiful princesses, melodic fragments hint at the triumphant theme of the Finale. Koschei and his minions surround Ivan, who uses the Firebird’s feather to call her to him. The Firebird performs an elaborate Infernal Dance to bewitch these forces of evil. Intensely percussive brass and frenzied flutters of woodwinds create a whirlwind of sounds, textures, and rhythms, which grow to a climax as Koschei and his demons fall into an exhausted sleep. The Firebird’s Lullaby, while beautiful and restrained, suggests a dark and uneasy slumber. Solo horn introduces Prince Ivan’s majestic theme, triumphant over evil in the Finale. Stravinsky’s writing dazzles as the theme climbs higher and higher, swelling to a dizzying climax. © Andrew McIntyre, 2017. Andrew McIntyre is the program annotator for the Paducah Symphony Orchestra.

Fellow Russian Igor Stravinsky was not the first or even second choice to compose the music for The Firebird. When Diaghilev approached him, he was littleknown outside their native St. Petersburg, yet the impresario had seen something special in the impassive young composer with “vague, meditative eyes.” “Mark him well,” Diaghilev urged his dancers. “He is a man on the eve of celebrity!” Diaghilev’s prediction would be proven correct. The Firebird’s overwhelmingly successful premiere made Stravinsky an overnight sensation across Europe, and cemented a relationship with Diaghilev that would lead to four more collaborations, including Petrushka and the riot-inducing Rite of Spring.

M

usic has the rare ability to reach deep within a person’s soul, connecting the mind, body and spirit. There is an other-worldly quality inherent in classical music, which invites listeners to experience intimacy with the world around them. While some children gain access to the talents of the Paducah Symphony Orchestra through family and friends, many more children have few opportunities to experience the richness and depth of feeling that a live performance of a symphonic orchestra can convey. That’s what makes PSO’s partnership with the Carson Center’s Class Acts Education Series so meaningful.

“The Carson Center is home to the Paducah Symphony Orchestra and so we are always pleased to collaborate with each other,” Carson Center Executive Director Mary Katz says. “Presenting the PSO in our Class Acts Education Series is a perfect synergy. The Carson Center has a 15-year connection to the schools in the 4-state PADUCAH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA — SCORE FEB/MAR 2018

region through our annual presentation of international and national theater companies during the school day. In addition to exposing youth to core curriculum learning through the arts, we are thrilled to have our very own Paducah Symphony to share the joy and power of music with school age audiences.” As part of PSO’s programming in the Class Acts Education Series, Maestro Raffaele Ponti will meet with students at participating elementary schools in advance of the April 13 performance at the Carson Center. Maestro Ponti will guide students through an interactive presentation that gives historical context and biographical substance to the lives of the composers and the compositions that PSO will highlight in their Class Acts performance. Teachers who participate in the Class Acts program receive curriculum earlier in the year to help children gain a deeper understanding of the historical context of the music they will hear in that performance. The curriculum changes from year to year, and generally spans a variety of content, from history to science to geography to math and more. In addition to hearing PSO’s live performance, children who attend the event will have the opportunity to sample a variety of musical instruments at an instrument “petting zoo.” Education Committee member Amy Allen says this part of the program gives students a rare look at what makes up each part of the performance they will see that day. “What you grow up being exposed to is what you’ll one day 32

include in your life,” Amy says. “If you never fall in love with the music you’ll never want to play it or study it.” There are few volunteer jobs that bring the kind of fulfillment that a role on the PSO’s Education Committee brings. “I love doing this,” Education Committee Member Diane Bach says. “Many of the children have not heard this music. It’s a great introduction to the music and the instruments that are used in the performance.” Diane plays a significant role in the development of the curriculum that teachers are given in preparation for the April performance. With the support of committee members and other educators, a professional-quality lesson guide is produced each year. The guide is filled with interactive activities for teachers to engage their children with content related to the music they will hear at the Carson Center. “The curriculum really does make a difference,” Diane says. “Any previous education we give the students on the composers and the compositions is helpful. The activities can be used and applied in different ways to make the concert more meaningful to the students.” PSO’s participation in the Carson Center’s Class Act Education Series has helped inspire teachers to enhance their musical instruction. Morgan Elementary School music teacher Kim Davidson says her classroom features a “composer of the month,” in order to help students gain a more holistic

PADUCAH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA—SCORE FEB/MAR 2018


understanding of what makes classical music so relevant to modern lives. “I think that has opened up more genres to the students because they are hearing so many different types of music in the classroom,” she says. Kim has also seen the fruit of PSO’s labors in a few of her students who have gone on to study music in pursuit of meaningful careers. “I have students who I don’t think would have made it, had it not been for the influence of music on their lives through the school system,” she says. “The experience that PSO gives to our students opens new doors.” For more information on PSO’s partnerships with the Carson Center and other community organizations, call 270.444.0065 or email contact@ paducahsymphony.org.
