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 forced us to make the hard decision to cancel our first two Masterworks Concerts, 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 two concerts featuring the works of such greats as Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Elgar. In January, MOSC oboist Caryn Crutchfield will be featured in a program that will include Mullikin’s Oboe Concerto and Mozart’s Symphony No. 41. 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 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 new 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 Midland-Odessa 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 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 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. 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 be in 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 (9th-12th 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 Theatre 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 April 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

ABOUT THE ARTIST CARYN CRUTCHFIELD - OBOE Dear Midland-Odessa Symphony family, In preparing my biography for this concert I kept getting stuck in the details of my career. Were I playing for anyone else that would be perfectly fine, but I really just wanted to share my life on a more personal level with you. After all, many of you have basically watched me grow up from a fresh out of college graduate to a married mom of three! So, I want to take this opportunity to “talk� to you about how I began this incredible journey in the Permian Basin and with the Midland-Odessa Symphony. Thank you for obliging me on this little trip down memory lane. I began my career as a musician, like many do, studying the piano at age five. I grew up with parents who really understood the value of music, and all four of my brothers and sisters and I studied music. My dad played the bassoon in high school and was appointed to the New Mexico All-State Band in the 50s. Although he became a doctor, I remember him playing frequently throughout my early high school days. We even played in the Paradise Symphony in Paradise, CA together for a short time. My mom was self-taught and played the organ for many years at our church. In the 5th grade I learned that band was a class that was offered at my school. I approached the band director about playing in band. We had just moved back to Chico, CA after being away for a few years. Turns out that all the other students started band the year before, but he would allow me in if I took private lessons and caught up to the other students. Seeing as how I had played piano for five years already that was not too difficult. I was also determined to get in that band! I played flute in 5th and 6th grade, but in 7th grade, when I went to junior high, I realized the flute was an extremely popular instrument; we had 24 flutes in our band. Not wanting to be one of 24, I approached my band director about switching to the oboe. One of my sisters had played the oboe, and we still had her instrument in one of our closets at home. He allowed me to switch the oboe with the same stipulation: I needed to take private lessons to catch up with the class. With my knowledge now of both piano and flute this happened quickly. In high school I was looking for a summer camp to attend. Keep in mind that when I was in high school, we were just starting to use computers, and the internet did not come along for quite a few more years. In our band room was a poster. The poster had post cards glued to it that you could take off and send in for more information. The poster was for the National Music Camp which is now known as the Interlochen Fine Arts Camp in Interlochen, MI. I attended summer camp in Interlochen, MI for three summers during high school. The camp was eight weeks long during that time. It was there that I began studying oboe with Dr. Robert Krause. During my senior year, Dr. Krause encouraged me to continue my studies with him at West Texas A&M University. I visited WTAMU (then WTSU) in January of 1990, and I realized right away that WT was the place for me, even though it was 1500 miles away from home. There are not enough pages in this book to describe to you how incredibly lucky I was to have ended up studying with Dr. Krause. He is like family to me, and I love him more than words can express. I completed a Bachelor and Master of Music degree while at WT.


Enriching Lives Through Music

ABOUT THE ARTIST During my time at WT we took many trips to the Permian Basin area on recruiting tours for the University. The Permian Basin had, and still has, many band directors who were graduates of WTAMU. As I was beginning to think about my life after graduation, I was approached by Randy Storie, who was then the band director at Lee High School. In his phone call, he told me of an opening with the Midland-Odessa Symphony for principal oboe, and essentially laid a path: “here is what you are going to do. You are going to audition for the Midland-Odessa Symphony, teach private lessons for us, and there is a part-time band director position at Goddard Junior High available to help you round out your salary.” Two weeks later I was auditioning for the MOSC Artistic Director of that period, Rob Hunt, and I moved to Midland in August of 1996. Just like many others I have heard from over the years, I never planned to stay in the Midland-Odessa area. I really thought that I would end up moving closer to my family back in California at some point, but I knew that I could not do what I loved doing living in a small town in Northern California. I knew that I could not make a livable wage in music there. It is a good thing that I stayed; in 1997 a cute violinist, named Kevin Crutchfield, joined the MOSC. He had moved to Odessa to attend Physical Therapy School in Odessa at the Texas Tech Campus. Kevin was an All-State violinist in high school, and really wanted to continue playing in an orchestra. Bill Harden, our Associate Principal Bassoon, likes to take credit for introducing us, but I was determined to meet him regardless. It took a couple of years, but I finally got shy Kevin to talk to me, and we began dating. We married in 2001. One of my favorite things about playing in the orchestra is that Kevin and I have both been a part of the MOSC. We have such great memories. This summer is our 20th wedding anniversary, and we have three children. Lucky us! During my tenure with the MOSC as the principal oboist, I have also enjoyed performing with the resident woodwind quintet, the West Texas Winds. We have performed some incredible programs over the years, and I know it has helped me improve as a musician and ensemble member. I also serve as the onsite personnel manager for the MOSC, teach band at Bowie Fine Arts Academy in Midland, have a small private studio, and I am an adjunct teacher for University of Texas Permian Basin. I am thankful to be a working musician! I am humbled, honored, and excited to perform the Mullikin Oboe Concerto for you this evening. I think you will love it. It is such a beautiful concerto, and I have enjoyed working on it especially knowing that I get to perform it for “y’all”. Enjoy!

MOSTLY MOZART Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart b. January 27, 1756 in Salzburg (located in modern-day Austria) d. December 5, 1791 in Vienna (modern-day Austria) Abduction from the Seraglio Overture Composed: Summer of 1781, written for the National Singspiel, a project of Austrian emperor Joseph II Premiered: July 16, 1782 at the Burgtheater in Vienna The Work in Context • 1779: Captain Cook is killed on his second visit to the Hawaiian Islands. • 1780: Pennsylvania passes a law that frees the children born to slaves. • 1781: Mozart writes Abduction from the Seraglio, the French Navy arrives in the Chesapeake Bay to blockade the British in Yorktown. • 1782: Seraglio premieres, peace talks begin between King George III and the Americans. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is one of the most beloved composers of all time. A child prodigy, Mozart’s father, Leopold, was a composer and court musician in Salzburg. Although he was a prominent musician at the time, Leopold dedicated his life to educating and promoting the work of young Wolfgang and his sister, Nannerl. Mozart was able to play a variety of pieces on the piano when he was four and was composing when he was five. He gave his first public performance with Nannerl when he was seven and she was ten. These performances were so well received that Leopold, Nannerl, and Wolfgang set off on a three-year performing tour of Europe. In the ten years between 1763 and 1773, the Mozart family went on five such tours. The family returned to Salzburg in 1773, where Mozart gained employment as a court musician. Over time, Mozart became dissatisfied with his work in Salzburg. He was not paid well, and he was unable to compose operas as the city’s court theater was closed in 1775. In 1781, Mozart moved to Vienna, where he would spend the remaining years of his life and compose his most famous works. His move was not supported by his previous employer in Salzburg, and, to make matters much more painful, Leopold sided against Mozart in this disagreement. Mozart’s career in Vienna did not go as smoothly as the quality of music he composed there or his stature in the history of western art music might suggest. The public concerts he performed were lucrative, but he had a difficult time securing patronage and he did not make a significant amount of income from teaching. Financial troubles became a significant part of his life as he had to borrow money to pay his bills. Mozart’s financial situation improved towards the end of his life, but he died in 1791 at the age of only 35 years old. Abduction from the Seraglio is a work that belongs to the genre called singspiel. Singspiel, unlike the more traditional Italian opera, has spoken dialogue between the musical numbers. In Italian operas, on the other hand, every word was sung, with the music alternating between recitative, which was sung in more of a speaking style and contained most of the action, and song-like arias where the characters would reflect on the action


Enriching Lives Through Music

which just transpired. Mozart received his commission to write Abduction from the Seraglio very soon after arriving in Vienna in 1781. Securing this commission was one of his first priorities upon arriving in the city. The work is lighthearted with frequent comic elements. The story is set in Turkey, which was a culture that piqued the interest of Western Europe at the time. The Ottoman Empire had only recently ceased to pose a threat to Austria, and many composers used highly Westernized versions of Turkish music in their works written around this time. The opera is set in Turkey and tells the story of Belmone’s search to find his lover Konstanze who was kidnapped by pirates and sold to a Turkish prince. The piece is well known by opera enthusiasts for its highly virtuosic arias. Mozart knew he had excellent singers at his disposal, and he made full use of their talents. The opera was a massive success for Mozart. This one piece earned three times the amount of his annual salary in Salzburg. Unfortunately, Mozart only received a very small portion of the gate and did not make money from the subsequent performances. It did, however, raise his profile in Vienna and lead to many more opportunities. The overture does not start with a slow introduction as with many opera overtures. Rather, the music starts immediately with the melody in the violins. One thing to listen for from the very beginning is the prominent use of percussion instruments, especially the crash cymbals. The use of these instruments is part of the incorporation of the Turkish style mentioned earlier. The use of cymbals and the more prominent use of percussion in classical music in the 19th and 20th centuries dates back to this fascination with Turkish music found in the works of Mozart and Beethoven, among others. The rousing opening section gives way to a slower section in the middle featuring a beautiful melody in the oboe accompanied by the woodwind section. The fast, light-hearted music from the opening returns and leads to a rousing finish. David Mullikin b. 1950 in Lexington, Kentucky Oboe Concerto I. Allegro moderato quasi pastorale II. Allegro Molto III. Adagio IV. Allegro giocoso Composed: 1999. Commissioned by Erna Butler in memory of Brad Butler. Written for oboist Peter Cooper. Premiered: 2000 by Peter Cooper, oboe with the Colorado Symphony. The Work in Context • 1998: Larry Page and Sergey Brin establish Google. • 1999: David Mullikin composes the Oboe Concerto, Dow Jones closes above 11,000 for the first time. • 2000: Peter Cooper premieres the Mullikin concerto, Vladimir Putin takes office as President of the Russian Federation. • 2001: The Human Genome Project publishes analysis of the human genome.



A composer and cellist with the Colorado Symphony since 1973, David Mullikin has had a wide and varied career. Mullikin holds degrees from the University of Cincinnati and the University of Michigan. He has been very active in musical education and outreach, writing a series of pieces for small ensemble and storyteller. Mullikin’s Oboe Concerto was premiered by the Colorado Symphony in 1999, with the symphony’s principal oboist Peter Cooper performing. The piece was recorded in 2002 by Peter Cooper with the Academy of Saint Martin in the Fields under the baton of Sir Neville Mariner. Unlike many concertos, the work is in four movements rather than the more common three movement structure. The concerto opens with a broad opening melody and lush harmonies in the orchestra. The music is in many ways reminiscent of American music from the early 1900s. The opening gives way to a more contemplative section that leads into an active section that prominently features the percussion section. In many ways, the movement is a series of episodes that flow one into the other, creating a contrast of different moods. The movement closes much the same way it began. The second movement is fast an intense, with virtuosic passage work in the oboe and driving rhythms in the orchestra. A slow and serene middle section provides contrast, with the fast music returning at the end. The third movement is a soaring and emotive adagio, that is an absolute pleasure to listen to. The movement ends with an extended cadenza, a solo performed by the soloist along. The final movement, marked allegro giocoso, completely lives up to its billing as lively and humorous. The piece as a whole is an incredibly enjoyable work and beautifully features all the reasons we love the oboe. Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Symphony No. 41, “Jupiter” I. Allegro vivace II. Andante cantabile III. Menuetto: Allegretto IV. Molto allegro Composed: Summer of 1788, the last of three symphonies he wrote that summer. Premiered: It is unknown if this work was ever performed during Mozart’s life. The Work in Context • 1785: Napoleon Bonaparte first becomes an officer in the French Army. • 1787: New York is the eleventh state to ratify the US Constitution. Congress adds the Bill of Rights to this document. • 1788: Mozart writes Symphony No. 4., Britain begins sending convicts to Australia now that the 13 colonies are independent. • 1789: North Carolina becomes the twelfth state to ratify the US Constitution. If Abduction from the Seraglio marks one of Mozart’s earliest successes in Vienna, then the iconic Symphony No. 41 provides a bookend as it was the last symphony that Mozart would write. Nicknamed the Jupiter Symphony, it is widely regarded as one of the greatest symphonies ever written.


Enriching Lives Through Music

In the summer of 1788, Mozart wrote three symphonies in quick succession, No. 39, No. 40, and No. 41. Mozart wrote these symphonies in a span of nine weeks while also writing other pieces, tending to his wife who was ill at the time, and dealing with his mounting financial concerns. It feels positively scandalous that this monumental work probably was not performed during the composer’s lifetime. The nickname Jupiter was probably given to the piece by Johann Peter Salomon, a German violinist who became an impresario in London. The first concert programs to include this subtitle were from the British Isles, so the attribution of this nickname rings true. The musicologist Elaine Sisman sums up the responses to the Jupiter Symphony as ranging from “admiring to adulatory, a gamut from A to A.” The first movement opens without the slow introduction found in many symphonies, including Mozart’s Symphony No. 39 written in the same nine-month span as this work. Mozart makes full use of his winds from the very outset of the work. The woodwind play a prominent role and we hear a series of fanfare-like interjections from the trumpets. The initial section of the music ends as if asking a question which is answered by a forceful Strum und Drang section. Sturm und Drang, translated “storm and stress,” was a precurser to Romantic style. In music, a Sturm und Drang section suddenly changes to a minor key and often feature driving rhythms, syncopation, and angular melodies. An interesting feature of this movement is the false recapitulation. The first movement of a symphony is typically written in sonata allegro form, which involves the return of the opening material at the end of the movement. The first time the opening material returns, however, it isn’t in the original key and is soft and played underneath a bassoon melody. The true recapitulation will be obvious as those opening flourishes return loud and at the forefront of the musical texture. This movement demonstrates Mozart’s absolute mastery and transcendence of sonata allegro form and his utter genius for composing melodies. The second movement is in ¾ time in the style of a sarabande, which was a dance style commonly found in the keyboard movement of the baroque era. The music is slow and contemplative with some absolutely gorgeous interplay between the violins and the flute. The winds feature very prominently in this movement, often playing the leading role. The third movement is a lively, energetic minuet. It displays some of the characteristics of a Landler, which was a popular Austrian folk dance. The classical minuet movement was written in ABA form, with the B form referred to as the trio. In the second half of the trio, the four-note theme that the whole final movement is built on can be heard in the violins and the upper woodwinds. This theme is presented here in a minor key, which gives it a very different character than the glorious C major of the final movement. The final movement is an absolute tour de force of counterpoint. The movement unfolds from the first four notes heard in the first violin at the beginning of the movement. This theme comes from Catholic chant. Mozart used this figure in a number of compositions, but no use was as famous as this one. The movement employs five different melodies which in music analysis we refer to as themes. At the end of the movement, Mozart writes a fugue in which all of these five previously introduced themes are heard at the same time in a dazzling display of compositional mastery. Mozart had deep respect for Baroque masters such as Bach and Palestrina, and the end of this movement displays his complete mastery of their techniques of counterpoint. The movement ends triumphally in C major, as an accomplishment of this magnitude should.

TCHAIVSKY FOUR Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky b. May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk, Russia d. November 6, 1893 in St. Petersburg, Russia “Polonaise” from Eugene Onegin Composed: Tchaikovsky began to compose the opera in May 1877 upon the suggestion of Russian opera singer Yelizaveta Lavrovskaya. He finished the opera in January 1878. Premiered: March 29, 1879 at the Maly Theater in Moscow. The performers were students at the Moscow Conservatory and were conducted by Nikolai Rubinstein. The Work in Context • 1876: Alexander Graham Bell invents the telephone. • 1877: The last union troops are withdrawn from former Confederate states as reconstruction comes to an end. • 1878: The Nez Perce nation is sent to a reservation in Oklahoma, Tchaikovsky finishes “Eugene Onegin.” • 1879: St. Petersburg has its first ever strike of industrial workers as the tensions that lead to the 1917 revolution begin, “Eugene Onegin” premieres. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky was a new kind of Russian composer. Whereas many of his predecessors, such as Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, distrusted and opposed the influence of Western European music and the new conservatories, Tchaikovsky took a course that embraced western music and infused it with Russian elements. Born in the rural provinces of the Russian Empire, the young Tchaikovsky was a musically precocious child. His parents nurtured his musical talent, but they encouraged him to pursue a career in law rather than music. Tchaikovsky’s parents, under the strain of supporting a growing family, needed him to become financially independent as soon as possible. They enrolled him in a boarding school with a minimum age of 12 when he was just 10 years old. His early separation from his family and the sudden loss of his mother affected him for the rest of his life. Upon graduation, the young Tchaikovsky was assigned a job at the Ministry of Justice. He engaged in the musical culture of St. Petersburg while working hard in his “day job.” Tchaikovsky enrolled in the new St. Petersburg Conservatory the year it opened, and he graduated three years later, in 1865. This western style musical training was disdained by some of his contemporaries, but Tchaikovsky, while friendly with the musical conservatives, embraced a more cosmopolitan style. Tchaikovsky went on to compose in all of the major genres and achieved astonishing success, both at home and abroad. By the time Tchaikovsky began his work on Eugene Onegin, he was well established as one of the preeminent composers in Russia. He had recently composed several operas, as well as his Third and Fourth Symphonies and the ballet Swan Lake. Tchaikovsky began to work on the opera at the suggestion of a Russian opera singer. The source material was a novel in verse by Alexander Pushkin of the same name. Pushkin was a towering figure in Russian literature, often considered the founder of modern Russian literature. Although he originally rejected the idea (he did not think the work had a sufficiently strong plot), he decided to take up the project after one sleepless night. He immediately wrote the



scenarios and began to write the music. Tchaikovsky used the original verses from Pushkin’s novel arranged in what he called “lyric scenes.” The opera is more episodic in nature rather than containing one continuous plot. The novel tells the story of an upper-class boy who rejects a country girl who goes on to grow into a worldly, married young woman. The young man tries to seduce her again, but it is too late. The strength of the novel lies in its character development and social commentary, and Tchaikovsky captures these strengths musically in the scenes he selected. The “Polonaise” is part of the opening scene of Act III. The setting is a large ball in Moscow. A polonaise is a robust, lively dance of Polish origin. The dance is typically in ¾ time with a repetitive, driving rhythm underneath the melody. The dance was common at Carnival parties and other festive events. Tchaikovsky writes this polonaise in a grand style with flourishes in the brass and lively rhythms in the strings. Edward Elgar b. June 2, 1857 in Lower Broadheath, Worcester, England d. February 23, 1934 in Worcester, England Cello Concerto in E minor, Op. 85 I. Adagio—Moderato II. Lento—Allegro molto III. Adagio IV. Allegro—Moderato—Allegro, ma non-troppo—Poco piu lento—Adagio Composed: Written in the summer of 1919, although his agreement to write this piece for cellist Carl Fuchs go back to as early as 1900. Premiered: October 27, 1919 by the London Symphony Orchestra. Elgar conducted and the solo was performed by Felix Salmond. The Work in Context • 1917: The Bolsheviks take control of Russia, the US joins WWI. • 1918: The allies armistice with Germany is signed on Nov. 11. • 1919: The Eighteenth Amendment, which prohibits the manufacture, sale, or transportation of alcohol, is ratified. Elgar’s Cello Concerto is written and premiered. • 1920: The Nineteenth Amendment, guaranteeing women’s suffrage, is ratified. Sir Edward Elgar successfully combined English and continental European style to create his own characteristic style that made him one of the foremost English composers of the late Romantic era. His father was a piano tuner, church organist, and music shop owner. Young Edward Elgar spent his formative years in and around his father’s shop. He had some formal musical training, but he was mostly self-taught and absorbed all of the music that surrounded him. He hoped to study music at the Leipzig Conservatory, but his family could not afford the tuition. At 16 he became a freelance musician, a status he would hold for the rest of his life. Elgar engaged in the musical life of his community as an organist, violinist, bassoonist, and conductor. He worked hard and hustled, composing and arranging music in his very limited free time. After his marriage, he moved his family briefly to London,

hopefully to gain additional musical opportunities. His career did not receive the boost that he had hoped, so he returned home. His reputation gradually grew as pieces he composed were well received at the Three Choirs Festivals in the English Midlands region. Elgar finally achieved his breakthrough in 1899, when his Enigma Variations premiered in London, conducted by the famous German conductor Hans Richter. The success of this work secured Elgar’s place amongst Europe’s leading composers. Elgar’s Cello Concerto was the last major work of his career. Alice Elgar, his wife that had been with him since he was a poor, struggling composer trying to make his way, died in 1920. After her death, Elgar struggled to compose despite intermittent attempts. The years leading up to the cello concerto were cataclysmic in Europe. World War I destroyed Europe, wiping out a generation of young men in the process. Before the war, popular sentiment in Europe was that the continent was in an eternal golden age. By the end of the war, members of the artistic, musical, and literary communities of the continent were hopeless and despondent. Elgar’s life towards the end of the war was also presenting difficulties. He was ill, his finances were in a bad situation, and he found himself on the opposite side of the war as many of his long-time German friends. Elgar composed the concerto at his cottage in Sussex, where, during the previous years, he could hear the rumble of artillery from the war across the narrow English Channel. Some have called the piece Elgar’s “war requiem,” a view that suggests that this work was Elgar’s coming to terms with the devastation of World War I. The premiere of the concerto did not go as Elgar had hoped. Elgar was conducting his concerto, but the rest of the concert was conducted by the London Symphony’s music director, Albert Coates. Coates allotted Elgar very little time to rehearse his brand-new concerto. His wife referred to this slight in her journal as “an insult to E. from that brutal, selfish, and ill-mannered bounder A. Coates.” Elgar even wanted to withdraw the piece, but he did not out of his respect for the soloist, Felix Salmond. The premiere was terrible. The critic Ernest Newman wrote: “Never, in all probability, has so great an orchestra made so lamentable a public exhibition of itself.” Somehow, the brilliance of Elgar’s concerto shown through its poor first performance. The work was recognized as an important new addition to the cello repertoire and to this day is one of the most beloved concertos for cello. The concerto opens with a free, recitative-like section in the cello featuring double stops and large leaps. The mood of the music is subdued and melancholy, and that mood continued into the main, stately melody, presented first in the violas. The music is heartbreakingly beautiful, and it leads to the common conclusion that this piece was Elgar’s “war requiem.” The middle section is in a major key and has more of a pastoral feel before the main theme returns in minor. The movement ends with a whisper in the cello. The second movement starts slowly again, but it quickly launches into a spirited scherzo. The solo part is energetic and athletic. It puts the virtuosity of the cellist on full display with seeming perpetual motion carrying the movement all the way to the end. The third movement is an adagio, featuring a light orchestration that allows the cello to sing over the top of the music. It is always difficult to express the emotional content of music in words. It is safe to say, however, that emotion absolutely pours out of this movement. At times, the music is both exultant and sorrowful. This movement is one of the most expressive pieces of music ever written. The final movement starts with a brief orchestra introduction and a call-back to the opening of the movement in the cello. The main body of the movement is an allegro moderato that is widely varied and very dramatic. Towards the end of the



movement, the cello plays a phrase from the third movement that is absolutely heart wrenching. The cello plays the music from the beginning of the concerto one last time, and then the orchestra drives the piece to a forceful conclusion. Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 36 I. Andante sostenuto—Moderato con anima—Moderato assai, quasi Andante —Allegro vivo II. Andantino in modo di canzona III. Scherzo: Pizzicato ostinato IV. Finale: Allegro con fuoco Composed: Written in 1877 and 1878 Premiered: Russian Musical Society concert in Moscow on February 22, 1878. Nikolai Rubinstein conducting. The Work in Context • • • •

1876: German doctor Robert Koch proves the germ theory of disease 1877: Thomas Edison invents the gramophone and phonograph 1878: The Zulu army defeats the British, Symphony No. 4 premiers 1879: Yellow Fever epidemic begins in New Orleans

Tchaikovsky wrote Symphony No. 4 right around the same time that he wrote Eugene Onegin. In December 1876, Tchaikovsky began his written relationship with Mrs. Nadezhda von Meck. Von Meck was a wealthy widow and a fan of Tchaikovsky’s music. She became Tchaikovsky’s patron on the condition that the two of them would never meet in person. Tchaikovsky began work on the Fourth Symphony soon after his first correspondence with von Meck and he kept her informed of his progress. He dedicated the symphony “to my best friend.” This dedication both paid tribute to von Meck and insured that her privacy would be protected. While Tchaikovsky’s written relationship with Nadezhda von Meck prospered both professionally and emotionally, he entered a new relationship that had the opposite effect. Tchaikovsky was in the midst of writing the Fourth Symphony when he received a letter from Antonia Miyukova. Antonia claimed to be a former student (scholars disagree as to whether or not she was) and professed her undying love for the composer. The letters continued and the emotional content escalated to the point where Antonia threatened to end her life if Tchaikovsky did not marry her. The scholarship on Tchaikovsky’s motivation to enter this marriage is complex and somewhat contradictory. All prominent scholars on Tchaikovsky believe that he was homosexual and that a desire to avoid sexual gossip may have played a part in his decision to marry a woman he did not love. However, Tchaikovsky also had money problems, and Antonia was about to come into a large inheritance. In addition, Tchaikovsky was frustrated by being forced by his financial circumstances to teach at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. His marriage offered a way out. No matter what Tchaikovsky’s motivations were for entering the marriage, the result was disastrous. The marriage lasted for less than two months with Tchaikovsky falling ill multiple times. Tchaikovsky left Russia for a trip around Europe in the fall of 1877 to try to recover from the emotional fallout of his failed marriage. He had his unfinished manuscript for the Fourth Symphony mailed to him in Italy. He finished the orchestration in January 1878. The symphony did not receive an immediately warm reception. Tchaikovsky wrote a program explaining the symphony at the request of Mrs. von Meck which almost certainly was not meant for public consumption. The program, full of overwrought sentimentalism to satisfy


Enriching Lives Through Music

a wealthy patron, found its way into the public and prejudiced many contemporary critics against the work. However, the strength of the music was greater than its poor initial critical reception, and the work today has a place amongst the greatest symphonies of the Romantic era. The symphony opens with an iconic fanfare in the horns and bassoons that is joined by the rest of the brass. Tchaikovsky said in a letter to von Meck, “The introduction is the seed of the whole symphony, undoubtedly the main idea. This is fate, that fatal force which prevents the impulse to happiness from attaining its goal, which jealously ensures that peace and happiness shall not be complete and unclouded, which hangs above your head like the sword of Damocles, and unwaveringly, constantly poisons the soul.” Tchaikovsky also wrote to a former student that the Fourth Symphony is his reflection on Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, the absolute tour de force which includes the most famous four-note motive in all of classical music. This opening fanfare functions similarly to the way the opening of Beethoven’s Fifth unifies the whole symphony. This “fate motive” appears throughout the symphony and provides unity to the work. The second begins with a simple and beautiful oboe that is picked up in the strings. The middle section is much more joyous, with fanfare in the trumpets and a more triumphant air. The simple melody from the beginning returns at the end as the movement ends gently. The third movement provides a complete change in texture and affect, as the strings perform the whole movement pizzicato (plucking the strings rather than bowing). Tchaikovsky described the movement as containing a series of “capricious arabesques.” After a charming, dance-like section in the woodwinds, the initial pizzicato melody from the strings returns. The final movement begins with a flood of sound with the full forces of the symphony playing the opening flourish. The movement is mostly ebullient and festive while containing some stormy moments as well. The secondary, descending theme uses the tune of a Russian folk song called “In the Field Stood a Birch Tree.” Tchaikovsky weaves this tune throughout the movement. The opening fate theme returns about two-thirds of the way through the movement. After the music dying away to nothing but a timpani roll, the music surges back to a glorious finish.

In a career spanning more than five decades, John Williams has become one of America’s most accomplished and successful composers for film and for the concert stage. He has served as music director and laureate conductor of one of the country’s treasured musical institutions, the Boston Pops Orchestra, and he maintains thriving artistic relationships with many of the world’s great orchestras, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the New York Philharmonic, the Chicago Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Mr. Williams has received a variety of prestigious awards, including the National Medal of Arts, the Kennedy Center Honors, the Olympic Order, and numerous Academy Awards, Grammy Awards, Emmy Awards and Golden Globe Awards. He remains one of our nation’s most distinguished and contributive musical voices. Mr. Williams has composed the music and served as music director for more than one hundred films. His 45-year artistic partnership with director Steven Spielberg has resulted in many of Hollywood’s most acclaimed and successful films, including Schindler’s List, E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, Jaws, Jurassic Park, Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the Indiana Jones films, Saving Private Ryan, Amistad, Munich, Hook, Catch Me If You Can, Minority Report, A.I. Artificial Intelligence, Empire of the Sun, The Adventures of TinTin, War Horse, The BFG and Lincoln. Their latest collaboration, The Post, was released in December of 2017. Mr. Williams composed the scores for all nine Star Wars films, the first three Harry Potter films, Superman, JFK, Born on the Fourth of July, Memoirs of a Geisha, Far and Away, The Accidental Tourist, Home Alone, Nixon, The Patriot, Angela’s Ashes, Seven Years in Tibet, The Witches of Eastwick, Rosewood, Sleepers, Sabrina, Presumed Innocent, The Cowboys, The Reivers and Goodbye, Mr. Chips among many others.

His most recent nomination was for the film Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. He also has received seven British Academy Awards (BAFTA), twenty-five Grammys, four Golden Globes, five Emmys, and numerous gold and platinum records.

COMPOSER NOTE Steven Spielberg’s film E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial has always held a special place in my heart, and I personally think it’s his masterpiece. In looking at it today, it’s as fresh and new as when it was made in 1982. Cars may change, along with hairstyles and clothes… but the performances, particularly by the children and by E.T. himself, are so honest, timeless and true, that the film absolutely qualifies to be ranked as a classic. What’s particularly special about tonight’s concert is that we’ll hear one of our great symphony orchestras, the Midland – Odessa Symphony & Chorale, performing the entire score live, along with the complete picture, sound effects and dialogue. I know I speak for everyone connected with the making of E.T. in saying that we’re greatly honored by this event… and I hope that tonight’s audience will find great joy in experiencing this magical film.
