Lissa Noël Wagner with



Enriching Lives Through Music

FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT On behalf of the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale Board of Directors, I would like to welcome you to the wonderful Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center for our 2020-2021 season. Now more than ever, amid the COVID-19 pandemic, we need music in our lives. We have titled our 58th season “Let the Music Move You.” But, it is our hope the music performed by our group of talented musicians will also bring comfort to your lives and hope for a brighter and healthier tomorrow for us all. That’s the profound power of music, and that is what we aim to share with you, our wonderful and loyal patrons. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic, the MOSC has been forced to offer an abbreviated season. Public health precautions have forced us to make the hard decision to cancel our first Masterworks Concert, as well as the entire Chorale season. This season may be shorter, but rest assured it will be jam-packed with a wonderful array of classical and pops works performed by worldclass talent under the masterful direction of Maestro Gary Lewis. For lovers of the classics, our Masterworks Series will offer three concerts featuring the works of such greats as Falla, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Elgar. Soprano Barbara Padilla, featured on America’s Got Talent, will headline the November concert. In January, MOSC oboist Caryn Crutchfield will be featured in a program that will include Mullikin’s Oboe Concerto and Mozart’s Symphony No. 4. And David Requiro, regarded as one of the country’s finest cellists, will be our guest artist in April, for the final concert of the Masterworks season that will feature Elgar’s Cello Concerto and will include a performance of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. On the “lighter side,” our Pops and Family Series offers four fantastic performances! Sure to be a special treat for the entire family, enjoy our annual Sounds of the Season holiday concert in December. In March, rising star Tony DeSare will jazz things up with a critically acclaimed tribute to “Old Blue Eyes,” Frank Sinatra. And in May, constant crowd pleaser Jeans ‘N Classics will return to the WNPAC to wow the audience with “Imagine,” a musical tribute to the Beatles. Finally, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial In Concert, features Director Steven Spielberg’s heartwarming movie masterpiece accompanied by the entire MOSC orchestra performing John Williams’ Academy Award-winning film score. And don’t forget to be on the look-out for our wonderful Chamber Concerts, featuring the West Texas Winds, Permian Basin String Quartet, and Lone Star Brass. These intimate ensemble gatherings offer a little bit of all things classical and contemporary and are great way to spend a Sunday afternoon. For specific dates and locations of these performances, please check our website at www.MOSC.org. It’s been said “You never step in the same river twice.” Change is a constant in our lives. And the COVID-19 pandemic is a prime example of how sometimes change can be awful and overwhelming. It’s reassuring to know that one constant has been the wonderful support from patrons like you. Thank you for always being there for us. And rest assured, the MidlandOdessa Symphony & Chorale will be here for you and the rest of West Texas, offering live music that brings comfort and joy to all. Patrick Canty 2020-2021 Board President



FROM THE INTERIM EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Thank you choosing to spend your evening with the us at tonight’s concert and supporting your Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale! It is my pleasure to serve as MOSC’s Interim Executive Director. For the past several years, I have thrived in our region’s arts economy as a musician, educator, and administrator maneuvering through countless genres of music. I have had the pleasure of performing in the MOSC under the leadership of Gary Lewis, as well as with one of our three fantastic chamber groups, the Lone Star Brass. I have clearly witnessed the unmistakable impact of the MidlandOdessa Symphony & Chorale on our arts community, assisting in galvanizing a strong music culture heightened by its performance spaces, established arts organizations, educational initiatives, and supportive community patronage. Upon accepting my new role, I have discovered a sound organizational structure equipped to weather these tumultuous times for our region. It is a reflection of your generosity and contribution. Thank you! As many might know, MOSC’s ticket revenue only covers a small part of our annual expenses. We rely on fund drive donations, concert sponsorships, guild donations, endowment distributions, and grant revenue. We hope that you will consider supporting MOSC by donating to the annual fund drive or providing a Legacy gift to our endowment. As a 501(c)3 organization, your support through all our giving opportunities is tax-deductible. To make a donation, visit our website at mosc.org or contact Violet Singh, our marvelous Development Director. I am humbled to fulfill the role of Interim Executive Director and continue the great strides the organization has taken over the past several years. I believe you will experience this progress in the magnificent quality generated from spectacular musicianship this evening. I also hope you are interested in meeting and speaking further in the lobby following one of our events. Ethan Wills Interim Executive Director

FROM THE MUSIC DIRECTOR Greetings! We are so hopeful to be able to share an incredible season of music with you in 2020-2021. I know you will love the fabulous roster of artists and variety of programs we have assembled. In November, we will welcome the wonderful Texas soprano, Barbara Padilla, runner-up on season four of America’s Got Talent. This eclectic program will have something for everyone, from opera arias, to Latin classics like “Granada” and “Con Te Partiró” to orchestral works by Latin-American and Spanish composers. A couple of years ago, when we screened the classic movie, “Wizard of Oz,” and performed the musical score live, the audience absolutely loved it. This season we will share another live performance of the score from the timeless movie, E.T., The Extraterrestrial In Concert. December brings our annual “Sounds of the Season” program of seasonal classics to get you in the holiday mood. We are always delighted to feature one of our own MOSC musicians as a featured soloist. In January, Caryn Crutchfield, Principal Oboist of the MOSC, will perform the beautiful Oboe Concerto by American composer David Mullikin, surrounded on the program by the music of Mozart. Continuing the incredible variety of styles and programs, we will feature Tony DeSare and his vocal stylings of the music of Frank Sinatra and beyond. Few orchestral works are as popular and exciting as Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4. April will feature that thrilling symphony along with cellist David Requiro performing the brilliant Cello Concerto by Edward Elgar. And in May we will celebrate the music of the Beatles! Especially during these challenging times, we are incredibly grateful for your patronage and support of the MOSC. The arts have often used their economic impact to justify their existence, but behind that argument lie real social needs. Great music moves us in a way mere words cannot. It provides the reassurance of narrative, the peace of contemplation and - most of all - the power of community, experiences that can be hard to define but which the current crisis is laying bare. Vancouver singer/songwriter Dan Mangan said “What is fulfilling about the arts is not necessarily the art itself but the way it connects us all. Those moments when you feel that connection with thousands of people in a room lift the great weight of existential loneliness.” I hope you are reading this while sitting in the world-class Wagner-Noël Performing Arts Center awaiting the start of one of the programs described above. We also hope you will subscribe to all of these wonderful programs and bring a friend or two. Our communities deserve and need the thriving, professional orchestra we have built over almost 60 years. It is with your help and support that we will continue to pursue our mission to change lives in the Permian Basin through great music. I look forward to meeting you at the concert! Gary Lewis Music Director & Conductor, Midland-Odessa Symphony Orchestra

2020-2021 MIDLAND SYMPHONY GUILD Midland Symphony Guild (MSG) is excited to begin its 58th year of supporting the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale. MSG began with the goals of supporting and raising funds for our local symphony music program. Over the past five decades, that effort has grown into a non-profit organization that provides annual financial and volunteer support to MOSC and its various productions and events. MOSC enriches our communities by showcasing world-class performers, local artists and musicians and featured presentations. MSG is comprised of members who invest both time and money in their local communities. Last year, MSG donated more than 1000 volunteer hours at 700 different events. The majority of these service hours were contributed by our Symphony Belles, daughters of our MSG members. Each Belle is required to complete 15 service events throughout their years in the MSG program (9th12th grades). This requirement of service fosters both a sense of giving back to the community and appreciation for the talented artists and musicians. In addition to the MOSC, our Belles volunteer with community organizations such as Safe Place of Midland, Midland Festival Ballet, Museum of the Southwest, Arts Council of Midland, Permian Basin Opera, Midland Community Theater and the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. We are so proud of our Belles. We sponsor two events for our Belles each year. We formally introduce our Freshman Belles at the January Masterworks concert, and in early February 2021 we will host our 58th Gala Weekend. This annual tradition is our biggest fundraising event for the year and provides an opportunity to highlight MOSC and the Guild’s connection to fine arts in the Permian Basin, as well as showcase the many accomplishments of our Senior Belles. The weekend includes a black-tie dinner to present and honor our Senior Belles, along with many members and patrons, for their years of service to MSG and the Midland community. It is my honor to serve of President of the Midland Symphony Guild this year. I look forward to working alongside many wonderful men and women while also having the privilege to experience exceptional performances and events. For our Belles, friendships will be formed, a spirit of service instilled, and a love of the arts encouraged. Even through this uncertainty and ever-changing environment this year, the Arts are an important part of our community and I look forward to working with the MOSC to find and develop “out of the box” ideas and events which will continue to make the MOSC such a significant presence in the Basin. Thank you to the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale for enriching our lives for another season. Blanche Wheeless 2020-2021 President Midland Symphony Guild

2020-2021 ODESSA SYMPHONY GUILD The Odessa Symphony Guild (OSG) is proudly celebrating 62 years of supporting the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale. In 1958, a group of ladies passionate about bringing fine arts and culture to West Texas were able to form an organization to provide financial and volunteer support to our local music programs. Over the decades, the OSG has grown into a non-profit organization that has raised thousands of dollars and volunteer hours to help fund the MOSC educational programs and concerts. We are thrilled that the passion continues today to help provide enrichment to the citizens of West Texas with world-class musicians, ensembles, and full orchestra performances. Such an amazing gift and influence for our future generations! Hundreds of OSG active members, patrons, Belles, and Beaux have supported the MOSC by donating financially or with time and energy, promoting concerts, selling memberships, ushering at concerts, hosting receptions, serving breakfast to musicians, preparing for Soundbite Suppers, and attending concerts. The OSG established the Belles & Beaux program (9th-12th graders) to introduce Odessa students to the arts and help them learn to volunteer and give back to our community. These four years of service are a valuable way to help our future leaders and contributors to the arts. In February 2021, we will host our annual Symphony Gala Ball. This is OSG’s primary fundraiser to benefit the MOSC. This special evening is focused on honoring our senior Belles and Beaux who have served throughout their high school careers. In addition, we present the freshman, sophomore and junior Belles and Beaux at the Ball. We would like to invite you to join our celebration as we honor these outstanding young people who have excelled academically, in service hours for the OSG, and many other activities and organizations around our area. I am honored to serve as the president of the Odessa Symphony Guild this year and look forward to working with a fantastic group of volunteers who are dedicated to our mission of supporting the arts. For our Belles and Beaux, I am excited for their chance to strengthen friendships, instill a desire to serve others, and continue an appreciation for the arts. We congratulate the MidlandOdessa Symphony & Chorale on their 58th season of enriching our community through beautiful music. Stacie Pruitt 2020-2021 President Odessa Symphony Guild

It took 63 days. • 1904: The New York City subway opens for the first time. • 1905: The Wright Brothers’ third plane stays in the air for 39 minutes, Falla finishes La Vida Breve. • 1912: New Mexico becomes the 47th state in the US. • 1913: Woodrow Wilson inaugurated President of the United States, La Vida Breve premieres in Nice, France. Manuel de Falla was the preeminent Spanish composer of the 20th century. Born in Cadiz to a Valencian father and a Catalan mother, Falla began his study of music at a young age, but he was not solely focused on music. The young Falla enjoyed writing and puppet dramas, and he developed a dedication to daily Catholic devotion which he maintained throughout the rest of his life. His love of literature and writing would resurface later in his life as he would write his own librettos for his staged works and articles discussing a variety of musical issues. Falla’s formal study of music lead him to study piano and composition at the Madrid Conservatory, where he was one of the most distinguished students of his generation. After graduation, Falla faced a difficult path forward. While he was an excellent pianist, he was not quite accomplished enough to make a living as a salon pianist. Orchestral composition was a difficult career path in Spain as the country did not have many professional orchestras. Falla chose to focus on zarzuela, a genre of Spanish-language musical theater that was extremely popular in Madrid. Falla composed six zarzuelas between 1900-1904. Unfortunately, only one of these works was ever commercially successful. Falla wrote La Vida Breve at the end of this period for a competition, which he won. The contest included the guarantee of a public performance of the winning work, but this commitment was not honored. At this point in his career, Falla could not see a future for himself composing in Spain, and so he moved to Paris in 1907. Falla was encouraged by his colleagues in Paris to keep pushing for a performance of La Vida Breve, and the work was finally premiered in 1913 in Nice, France. La Vida Breve is a two-act opera about a gypsy girl named Salud. She is in love with a young wealthy man named Paco. Unfortunately for Salud, Paco is already engaged, a fact which Paco does not tell her. Salud crashes the wedding and confronts Paco, who denies that he knows who she is. Salud is so distraught that she falls dead at the feet of her former lover. The Spanish Dance begins with sweeping melodies in the violins accented by castanets and a soaring counter melody in the horns. A more forceful section follows with the melody in the lower strings and heavy accents in the timpani. The opening music returns, but at a faster tempo than the beginning. The music surges ahead and finishes with a flourish.



CONCIERTO DE AMOR Three Cornered Hat, Suite No. 2 I. The Neighbor’s Dance II. The Miller’s Dance III. Final Dance Composed: The music was composed from 1916-1917 for a pantomime called The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife. Premiered: The ballet, choreographed by Diaghilev, premiered in London’s Alhambra Theater in July 22, 1919. The Work in Context • 1916: The first successful blood transfusion is given. • 1917: The 18th Amendment, prohibiting the sale, manufacture, and transport of alcoholic beverages is passed by Congress, Falla finishes the music for The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife. • 1918: The first wave of the Spanish Flu hits the US in Fort Riley, Kansas. • 1919: Negotiations to end WWI begin, The Three-Cornered Hat ballet premieres in London. Manuel de Falla returned to Spain in 1914 after seven years of living, composing, and performing in Paris. These years had broadened his musical horizons and helped him connect with some of the most prominent figures in the European classical music scene. Those connections paid off for Falla when Stravinsky visited Madrid accompanied by Sergei Diaghilev, the founder of the Ballet Russe. This was the ballet company whose premiere of Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring famously caused riots in Paris. Falla had known the folktale The Three-Cornered Hat for years and had considered using it as his libretto when he composed La Vida Breve. Falla chose a different libretto for that piece, but he never forgot the old folktale and Pedro Antonio de Alarcón’s novel adaptation titled The Magistrate and the Miller’s Wife. A decade later, Falla used this story for a pantomime he wrote to be performed in Madrid in 1917. Diaghilev heard the music and asked Falla to write a ballet adaptation. Because of World War I, the premiere was not able to take place until 1919. The ballet premiered in London with sets and costumes designed by Pablo Picasso. The story of The Three-Cornered Hat was set in Andalusia and tells the story of a magistrate infatuated with a miller’s wife. The magistrate pursues the miller’s wife, but the miller chases him away. The magistrate arrests the miller on trumped up charges and goes to the miller’s house. On his way, the magistrate trips and falls in the river, allowing the miller’s wife to escape. The miller escapes from jail, and the miller and the magistrate end up in each other’s clothes. Once all the confusion is sorted out, the miller and the townspeople get their revenge and humiliate the magistrate. The Three-Cornered Hat Suite No. 2 corresponds to the second act of the ballet and is comprised of three dances. The first movement is a seguidilla. The two musical themes are both traditional Spanish tunes. The first is a gypsy wedding song and the second is a popular Spanish folk song. The second movement is a farruca, which is a solo flamenco dance. The music is slow and solemn. The intensity of this dance gradually builds to a forceful and wild finish. The final movement of the suite is a jota, a dance in triple meter that is associated with the region of Aragon. The movement is an amazing and colorful fusion of traditional Spanish sounds with more modernist orchestral techniques. The music is very well suited to the ballet stage, and Falla’s unique voice combined with Diaghilev talent for producing ballet made The Three-Cornered Hat a hit across Europe.

CONCIERTO DE AMOR Alberto Ginastera b. April 11, 1916 in Buenos Aires, Argentina. d. June 25, 1983 in Geneva, Switzerland. Estancia: Danza Final Composed: Written in 1941 on a commission from Lincoln Kirstein for his American Ballet Caravan. Premiered: The full ballet premiered in 1952, but a suite of four dances from the ballet was first performed in 1943 at the Teaotro Coloacuten in Buenos Aires. The Work in Context • 1940: Winston Churchill replaces Neville Chamberlain as Prime Minister of Great Britain. • 1941: Mahler 2 performed in Berlin by a Jewish orchestra, Ginastera writes Estancia. • 1942: The Disney animated film Bambi premieres. • 1943: Allied forces begin the invasion of Italy, the symphonic suite of music from Estancia premieres. Alberto Ginastera was an Argentinian composer of Italian and Catalan heritage. A promising composer at a young age, Ginastera began his formal music study at the age of seven and attended the very best music schools in Argentina. In 1937, while Ginastera was still a student, a suite from his ballet Panambí was performed in Buenos Aires. This was a huge opportunity for the young composer and the piece was well received. The staged ballet received its premiere in 1940. This premiere was successful and lead Lincoln Kerstein, the director of the American Ballet Caravan to commission his second staged work, Estancia. Kerstein’s group had previously commissioned Copland’s Billy the Kid. Unfortunately, the troupe folded before Estancia could be performed, but Ginastera extracted an orchestral suite that premiered in 1943 and was very successful. The staged ballet finally premiered in 1952. Estancia (a cattle ranch on the pampas) tells the story of Argentinian gauchos and the action takes place in a single day. The plot tells the story of a city boy who falls in love with a country girl. The girl is skeptical of this young man from the city, so he has to prove himself by demonstrating his skills in horsemanship and dancing. The work is loosely based on a poem called Martín Fierro, by José Hernández. The poem celebrates the life of the gaucho and mourns the societal changes that were harming rural life in the 1870s when the poem was written. The Danza Final is a dance style called a malambo. Malambo is dance that originated on the pampas in the 1600s. It is only danced by men and the music that accompanies the dance never has lyrics. The dance features very elaborate footwork and was often danced competitively amongst the gauchos. The music alternates between triple and duple rhythms throughout the movement. The music builds in intensity towards the conclusion, which mirrors the dancer’s movements becoming more and more complex as they compete with each other.



CONCIERTO DE AMOR Pietro Mascagni b. December 7, 1863 in Livorno, Italy d. August 2, 1945 in Rome, Italy Intermezzo from Cavalleria Rusticana Composed: Mascagni wrote the opera in 1889 for a one-act opera competition being put on by the music publisher Sonzogno (it won). Premiered: May 17, 1890 in Rome, Italy. The opera received 60 curtain calls. The Work in Context • 1887: The Yellow River floods in China, killing 900,000 people. • 1888: George Eastman invents the Kodak camera, allowing non-professionals to take photographs. • 1889: North Dakota, South Dakota, Montana, and Washington become states, Mascagni writes Cavalleria Rusticana. • 1890: Yosemite National Park created, Cavelleria Rusticana premieres. Pietro Mascagni was the son of a baker in Livorno in the region of Tuscany. He began studying music at the age of 13 against his father’s wishes and flourished as a young composer. He wrote masses and cantatas as a young composer and, in 1882, he left Livorno for Milan to study at the Milan Conservatory. Mascagni did not finish his studies. He left the conservatory and toured as a performer and conductor and kept composing vocal music. Mascagni’s life changed forever in 1888. The music publisher Casa Songonzo announced its competition for the best one-act opera. Mascagni chose Giovanni Verga’s hit play Cavalleria Rusticana (Country Chivalry) for the subject of the opera. He commissioned a libretto and finished the music in 1889. However, Mascagni got cold feet. He put the score in a drawer, and it may have never been submitted if his wife had not sent it in. The jury was greatly impressed with the piece and, of the 73 entries, Cavalleria Rusticana won first prize. The opera premiered in 1890 to a triumphant reception. It received 60 curtain calls, Mascagni received Order of the Crown of Italy, and the opera was performed all over Europe. The success of Cavalleria dwarfed all of his subsequent work to the point that the composer quipped late in his life: “It is a pity I wrote Cavalleria first for I was crowned before I became king.” Giovanni Verga was a leading member of the verismo literary movement, and Cavalleria Rusticana may be the first opera to incorporate verismo into a musical genre. Verismo sought a higher degree of realism in literature and music, and often concerned itself with the lives of the poor rather than stories about the elite. The stories featured gritty plots with plenty of sex and violence. This movement within Italian opera continued until the 1920s, with Giacomo Puccini being the foremost composer. Cavalleria Rusticana tells the story of a soldier, Turiddu, who returns from war and finds his lover, Lola, married to a wealthy business owner. To make Lola jealous, Turiddu seduces


Enriching Lives Through Music

CONCIERTO DE AMOR Santuzza, a young woman living in the village. Turiddu’s plan works, causing Lola to leave her husband and take up with Turiddu. Entering church for Easter mass, Lola mocks Santuzza. Santuzza gets her revenge by telling Alfio, Lola’s husband, about Lola’s affair. Alfio vows his revenge against Turiddu. This is the point in the opera where we hear the famous Intermezzo. This short work is based on a hymn tune heard earlier in the opera. The simplicity of the melody suggests the country themes of the opera, but there is no escaping the emotion of the music. The intensity of feeling that the principals are experiencing at this movement in the opera leaps out of the music. The music fades away at the end with an ascending line in the harp. Like many verismo operas, this story does not have a happy ending. As Turiddu and Lola leave the church, Alfio meets them and challenges Turiddu to a duel. Feeling remorse for what he has done, Turiddu asks his mother to take care of Santuzza. Alfio and Turiddu proceed offstage, where Alfio kills Turiddu. The popularity of this opera is matched by the popularity of the Intermezzo as a concert piece. It is one of the most beloved and widely performed short pieces of orchestral music in the repertoire. Arturo Márquez b. December 20, 1950 in Alamos, Mexico Danzon No. 2 Composed: Written in 1993 after the composer made a trip to Malinalco. Premiered: 1994 by the symphony of Mexico’s National Autonomous University. The Work in Context • 1991: The UN authorizes the use of force to drive the Iraqi military out of Kuwait. • 1992: Trash recycling begins in Portland, Oregon; the first such program in the US. • 1993: Microsoft begins manufacturing the Windows system, Marquez writes Danzon No. 2. • 1994: Nelson Mandela inaugurated as president of South Africa, Danzon No. 2 premieres. Arturo Márquez was one of nine children in his family in rural Mexico. Although his father and grandfather were both mariachi and folk musicians, Arturo was the only one of his siblings to pursue a career in music. He studied music at the Conservatorio Nacional in Mexico City, learning piano, music theory, and composition. Márquez also studied in Paris and at the California Institute of Arts, and he has held a number of teaching positions in Mexico. His music represents a fusion of Mexican folk music elements and more contemporary classical music techniques. In 1993, Márquez took a trip to Malinalco with the painter Andrés Fonseca and the dancer Irene Martínez. Both were experts in salon dances like the danzon, and that experience piqued his interest in this form. The danzon was a salon dance for couples that has its roots in the Cuban habanera. The traditional dance also incorporates pauses where the couple stands still and listens to virtuoso passages by the instrumental ensemble. Danzon No.



CONCIERTO DE AMOR 2 was premiered in 1994 by the Orchestra Filarmonica at Mexico’s National Autonomous University. This orchestra is the oldest symphonic ensemble in Mexico City. Danzon No. 2 opens with the melody in the clarinet accompanied by claves and piano. The woodwinds pass the melody before the tempo picks up and the strings make their first entrance. The form of the piece resembles a rondo, where the initial theme alternates with a variety of different episodes. The piece features solos in the clarinet, piccolo, violin and trumpet, with the claves and clave rhythms being heard throughout the majority of the work. The theme of the rondo is slow and seductive, with the episodes being much livelier and very colorful. The piece ends with the main theme in a faster, more energetic form before a long crescendo leading to the final thunderous notes. Danzon No. 2 became a widely performed work when Gustavo Dudamel and the Simon Bolivar Youth Symphony performed the work extensively on their tour of the United States and Europe in 2007. Program notes by Martin D. King An active performer and teacher, Martin D. King is on the faculty of Washington State University, where he teaches horn and music education. Dr. King is an active performer, holding positions in three orchestras in Eastern Washington and touring with his quintet, the Pan Pacific Ensemble.
