FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT I would like to personally thank you for your attendance of the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale’s concert this evening. Since 1962, when two struggling orchestras in Midland and Odessa came together as MOSC, we have given generous supporters like you throughout the Permian Basin opportunities to help put on performances such as the one you are enjoying tonight. Please know that you are extending our mission of “Enriching lives through Music” in the Permian Basin when you take advantage of one or more of the following opportunities such as sponsoring one of many concerts, advertising in our program book, making a qualified charitable donation from an IRA or giving appreciated stocks to our Endowment Fund or Fund Drive (operating budget) and purchasing concert tickets. Take a moment to look through the program book and if you see someone you know or places you frequent, please take time to thank them for their support. It is through this generous support, whether it be $100, $1000 or a major gift, that will allow MOSC to be around for another 55 years. This 55th year continues the rich history of providing excellent concert music and music education to the Permian Basin. Whether you are attending a Masterworks or Pops & Family Concert in the marvelous Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center, you are sure to have an enjoyable experience. You may also want to consider attending one or more of the Chamber or Choral Series concerts. All of these are made possible because of an outstanding professional orchestra, a dedicated chorale, MOSC staff and Board of Directors. Gary Lewis is a dynamic music director and conductor, Greg Pysh directs our chorale and Emily Baker directs the Voices of the Permian Basin. Our amazing staff is guided by our executive director Jeannette Kolokoff. The Board of Directors oversees the organizations efforts. I am honored and humbled to lead the Board as president during our 55th Season. We are glad you are here and thank you for your support; enjoy your evening. Carol Chandler MOSC Board President

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR As I begin my sixth season with MOSC I reflect on the exciting achievements of the past five years. Having our concerts at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center increases the level of our artistry and provides the opportunity for exciting and innovative concerts that would not otherwise be possible. Our strategic plan has led us to launch many exciting programs that will continue to enrich and broaden our audience for years to come including the establishment of the Symphony Young Professionals, Symphony Soundbites Suppers, a special fundraiser-concert and an educational concert at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center for students. Symphony Young Professionals: Our Symphony Young Professionals (SYP) offers music-lovers between the ages of 21 and 40 the opportunity to network and enjoy special events surrounding MOSC and the arts community in the Basin. Growing with each new event SYP is becoming a vital component of our organization by solidifying future MOSC audiences and leaders. Symphony Soundbites Suppers: The convenience of having dinner and experiencing a concert in one venue is so appreciated by Soundbite patrons. The intimate atmosphere created at the Soundbite Suppers allows patrons to see and hear Maestro Lewis “up-close and personal” as he provides the ‘inside scoop” surrounding the evening’s concert. Soundbite patrons also have the opportunity to hear directly from the concert’s guest artist(s) to answer questions and engage in a very personal way. Immediately following the supper, Soundbite patrons enter the concert hall knowing what to expect and await the performance with great anticipation. Fundraiser Concert: Our fundraiser concert last season with Home Free was a great success. This season we are excited to bring you a great holiday show, “Asleep at the Wheel – A MERRY TEXAS CHRISTMAS Y'ALL"! Expect a wonderful evening that combines Asleep at the Wheel’s most popular songs, new material, and holiday favorites such as “Christmas in Jail” and “Merry Texas Christmas Y’all.”Don't miss a fun-filled evening with these Texas legends performing holiday music inspired by the Lone Star State! Music Education: As a very important part of our mission, music education inspires students to make music a life-long enriching part of their lives. Four years ago we began a program that includes a special concert for students at the Wagner Noël Performing Arts Center. 5,000 students each year have had the opportunity to experience a live professional symphonic performance. The excitement expressed by the students as they first enter the concert hall and especially with the first downbeat of the orchestra is beyond description. Most importantly, none of this can continue without you, our audience. Please make this year the best ever by bringing a friend to a concert, donating to the Annual Fund, sponsoring a concert and including us in your planned giving. Join me in making this season the best ever as we continue making incredible music in the Basin! Jeannette Kolokoff MOSC Executive Director

FROM THE MUSIC DIRECTOR Dear Patrons: Welcome to the 2017-2018 season of the Midland-Odessa Symphony Orchestra! I am so glad you can join us for what will be an exciting season of great music. We can’t wait to share it with you! Violinist Stephen Rose, former principal second violin of the MOSC and now in the same position with the Cleveland Orchestra, will help us kick off the season on a program which also features Berlioz’ epic Symphonie Fantastique. In November we bring you an all-time audience favorite, Dvorak’s “New World” Symphony while our own Principal Cellist Amy Huzjak will thrill you with her performance of the Shostakovich Cello Concerto No. 1. We’ll feature the majestic Symphony No. 6, “Pathétique” by Tchaikovsky in January along with works by two American composers, a rare timpani concerto by William Kraft and Joan Tower’s Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman. Our Masterworks Series closes in a most fascinating way with a program featuring Debussy’s thrilling symphonic impression of the sea, La Mer, and the two-time Grammy winning composition by John Corigliano, Mr. Tambourine Man, based on the poetry of Bob Dylan, legendary songwriter and winner of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature. Our Pops and Family Series begins with a first for the Permian Basin. The orchestra will perform the score live along with a screening of the iconic film, The Wizard of Oz. You don’t want to miss seeing this restored classic on the screen along with the live performance of the score in our wonderful concert hall! The “Sounds of the Season” will once again get the holiday season started in a festive way, Brass Transit brings the energy and music of the great rock band Chicago, and we pay tribute to our veterans and first responders in “Celebrating Our Heroes” to bring the season to an end. We are so very grateful for your support and patronage! We simply cannot bring this great music to the Permian Basin without your help. Please be sure to also attend the many wonderful performances by the outstanding ensembles of the MOSC, the Chorale, our youth choir The Voices of the Permian Basin, along with the West Texas Winds, Lone Star Brass, and Permian Basin String Quartet. These programs are always inspiring and engaging and you don’t want to miss them! We hope you will subscribe to all of these wonderful series of concerts. Bring a friend and join us for this season of great music as we pursue our mission to enrich lives in the Permian Basin through great music. I look forward to meeting you at the concert! Gary Lewis Music Director and Conductor, Midland-Odessa Symphony Orchestra

2017 - 2018 PRESIDENT, MIDLAND SYMPHONY GUILD Midland Symphony Guild (MSG) is proud to begin its 55th year continuing in support of the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale (MOSC). MSG was created to support and raise funds for our local symphony music program. That effort has grown over the decades as a non-profit organization and now supports MOSC and all the fantastic music events it produces. From choral and ensemble performances to the full symphony events, MOSC is a shining example of how fine arts enrich our culture. Our Guild is made up of members who invest time and money supporting our local community. We believe the effort is not only worthwhile, but that partnering with an organization like MOSC grows and sustains our communities and cities. Midland Symphony Guild established a Symphony Belle program to encourage this effort. Daughters of guild members volunteer in the Belle program from 8th – 12th grade. Each young lady volunteers service for local events and learns the value of giving back to her community. Friendships are made and life lessons learned. In addition to serving our symphony, Belles work with other great community organizations like Safe Place, Midland Festival Ballet, Museum of the Southwest, Arts Council of Midland, Permian Basin Opera, Midland Community Theatre, and The Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center. In February 2018, we will host our Gala Weekend. This annual tradition continues a long heritage supporting our community and celebrating the guild’s connection to Midland and fine arts in our area. A black-tie dinner provides our opportunity to present our Senior Belles and honor their four years of service. We also proudly recognize the efforts of our adult members and patrons. Without their support and encouragement, our Belles and our fundraising efforts could not be as successful. Additionally, please join us in welcoming our incoming Freshmen Belle class. They will be introduced at the MOSC Masterworks concert on November 4th. It is my privilege again this year to serve as president of Midland Symphony Guild. I am honored to work with such an enthusiastic group of volunteers. It is our mission to support the musical arts while continuing to build and grow our organization. Leadership, volunteerism, and love of community are encouraged and strengthened. From our Belles through all the guild membership, we proudly support MOSC. We are incredibly fortunate to have an organization in our midst that displays the talent of distinguished musicians and provides us access to musical performances and educational programs. Congratulations to the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale on another season of enriching our lives through music! Thomas W. Elrod 2017-2018 President Midland Symphony Guild

2017 - 2018 PRESIDENT, ODESSA SYMPHONY GUILD The Odessa Symphony Guild is entering in to its 59th year of continuous support for the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale. The MOSC has supported and broadened the musical education in Midland-Odessa and surrounding communities by presenting free concerts to our community, instructing Youth Choir and honoring numerous other events. First class musicians have been performing with the symphony to enhance and enrich our lives through their music at concerts, as well as serving in the public schools by teaching our youth to appreciate music and become the next generation’s amazing musicians. Beginning in 1958 when Odessa Symphony Guild was formally organized, it has provided opportunities for all active members, Patrons and Belle/Beaux volunteers to support the MOSC through contributions, ushering, attending concerts, working at the concerts, and hosting receptions. OSG Belle/Beaux volunteer opportunities begin freshman year of their high school career, with both student and parent giving of their time to support the MOSC. If you or your child is interested in our program, please visit odessasg.org to learn more about our enriching program. The Odessa Symphony Guild will host our Annual Symphony Gala Ball at the Odessa Country Club on Saturday, February 3, 2018. The Ball is the main fundraiser for the OSG to provide financial support to the MOSC. This is also a time to honor our Senior Belles and Beaux who have devotedly served the OSG throughout their high school careers. The Odessa Symphony Guild takes this opportunity to introduce freshmen, sophomores, and junior Belles and Beaux, along with a special celebration of Senior Belles and Beaux. The Odessa Symphony Guild invites you to attend this sensational event as we honor the hard work these students have contributed, and at the same time raise funds to support the MOSC. Odessa Symphony Guild is thrilled to announce this year’s theme will be Fire and Ice . OSG will be thrilled to have you join us at this elegant affair!

FANFARE Masterworks: Fanfare Program Notes Dr. Melissa Graham © 2017

Joan Tower b. September 6, 1938, New Rochelle, New York Sixth Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman Composed: 2014 Premiered: May 7, 2016, conductor Marin Alsop and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra Approximate duration: 5 minutes Timeline Connections • 1986 - 1993: Joan Tower composed Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman (five separate fanfares) • 1991: World Wide Web publicly debuted as an internet service • 1997: Five pieces of Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman collected into single work, dedicated to “women who are risk-takers and adventurers” • 2000: Two notable American composer premieres: Jennifer Higdon blue cathedral and Christopher Theofanidis Rainbow Body • 2005: Hurricane Katrina • 2006: Pluto lost status as planet • 2014: West Africa Ebola outbreak

Joan Tower is considered one of the most important living American composers. In her career thus far (spanning over fifty years), she has additionally made significant contributions as a performer, conductor, and educator. Numerous major ensembles, soloists, and orchestras (New York, Chicago, St. Louis, Pittsburg, and Washington D.C. to name a few) have commissioned her work, and many of her compositions have won prestigious awards. Tower began working on the Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman in 1986. By 1993, she had completed the fifth fanfare with this title (which does, of course, allude to Aaron Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man). The sixth fanfare was added in 2014. Since the birth of the first in this series, over 500 ensembles have brought the music to life, and many of these performances have been for events paying homage to women. Although Tower’s achievements are impressive regardless of gender, she has admitted to some degree of issue with gender-related glass ceilings; it can be a bit of a quandary to be pigeonholed as a “woman” composer. Regardless, Tower has been a pioneer for women composers, and has expressed her joy in breaking conventions. This may illuminate the dedication for her First Fanfare: Marin Alsop, a pioneer for women conductors, who currently serves as music director of the Baltimore Symphony (the highest conducting position held by a woman thus far). Alsop recorded all five of the original series during her tenure with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, and commissioned the Sixth with Baltimore. In a Washington Post review in August of 2016, Robert Battey stated, “…this sixth one is not really a “fanfare” at all, but basically a short, fully worked-out overture. It is an attractive work in the bustling American style of Michael Torke or John Adams (chugging, repeated notes as a unifying element), but with rapid shifts in texture. Tower is in many ways a worthy heir to Copland, and I am certain her work will someday be as firmly entrenched in the repertoire.” 33

FANFARE (continued) William Kraft b. September 6, 1923, Chicago Timpani Concerto No. 1 Composed: 1983 Premiered: March 9, 1984, timpanist Thomas Akins, conductor John Nelson and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra Approximate duration: 23 minutes

As one of the most important musical voices on the West Coast for several decades, William Kraft has been an influence as a performer, conductor, and composer. Kraft served as Principal Timpanist for the Los Angeles Philharmonic for 18 of his 26 years with the ensemble, was Assistant Conductor for three years, and a resident composer from 1981 to 1985. He founded, organized, and directed notable ensembles such as the Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group and the Los Angeles Percussion Ensemble, and also served as Stravinsky’s timpanist and percussionist in charge of all percussion needs for Stravinsky’s Los Angeles work. Commissioned by Percussion Projects for Thomas Akins, the former principal timpanist of the Indianapolis Symphony, Kraft’s Timpani Concerto No. 1 holds a revered place in percussion repertoire. It has influenced and inspired modern composers to explore the realm of possibility for solo literature for percussion instruments. This realm is surprisingly unexplored – especially when considering the fact that this family of instruments is amongst the oldest in existence, second only to the human voice. The timpani themselves are related to the oldest drums, but traditionally play a supportive role (often utterly crucial but not a leading voice) within the ensemble. The Concerto features several unusual techniques and a wide range of textures. In the first movement, the soloist plays with hands gloved in various materials (felt, leather, then bare) before picking up mallets. The second movement features a sound world reminiscent of Bartók and exploits a glissandi technique of changing the pitch of the drums while playing (executed with the foot). The final movement breaks the dream soundscape established in the second, and fiercely features the four-note motive established in the opening movement.

FANFARE (continued) Nutcracker ballet is a holiday standard. Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake is utilized in several movies – notably featuring Natalie Portman in the 2010 film Black Swan. In other words, his ballets in particular permeate popular culture and classical ballet stages alike. Tchaikovsky’s symphonic themes have also been quoted and utilized both in films and other pop culture avenues (e.g., Glenn Miller (1942), The Aviator (2004), and even the cartoon The Ren & Stimpy Show).

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky b. May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk, Russia d. November 6, 1893 in Saint Petersburg, Russia Symphony No. 6 “Pathétique,” op. 74 Composed: 1893 Premiered: October 28, 1893, Tchaikovsky conducting the Russian Musical Society, St. Petersburg Approximate duration: 45 minutes

Timeline Connections • 1884: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn (Mark Twain) • 1888: Tchaikovsky premiered his Symphony No. 5 • 1889: Starry Night (Vincent van Gogh) • 1891: Carnegie Hall opened • 1891: Birth of Basketball • 1893: Dvořák premiered his New World Symphony Tchaikovsky is in the ears of essentially every Western world human; one would be hard-pressed to find someone who didn’t recognize at least some of his music. Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture may bring canons, fireworks, and the Fourth of July to mind, and his

Symphony No. 6 is Tchaikovsky’s final symphony. After a difficult compositional journey toward his Fifth and a self-proclaimed failed attempt at another subsequent symphony, this piece came as an outpouring of consuming emotion. In a letter to his brother, he stated, “I am now wholly occupied with the new work . . . and it is hard for me to tear myself away from it. I believe it comes into being as the best of my works. I must finish it as soon as possible, for I have to wind up a lot of affairs and I must soon go to London. I told you that I had completed a Symphony which suddenly displeased me, and I tore it up. Now I have composed a new symphony which I certainly shall not tear up.” In a letter to his nephew Vladimir Davydov, he stated that he was composing “with such ardor that in less than four days I have completed the first movement, while the remainder is clearly outlined in my head.” As the premiere took place only nine days before Tchaikovsky’s death, the impetus for this symphony is shrouded in speculation. The subtitle, Pathétique, should be understood with its original Russian in mind: rather than an English “pathetic,” the meaning is more akin to “emotional,” “passionate,” or “infused with pathos.” While Tchaikovsky had admitted that he had written with a program in mind, he never revealed it. The subtitle was the only clue until years later, when an enigmatic note was discovered amongst the sketches of a symphony (some assert the it

FANFARE (continued) was referring to the piece at hand, but it could have been intended for the previous “attempt� in E-flat major). The note suggests that the first movement is “all impulsive passion; the second, love; the third, disappointments; the fourth, death – the result of collapse.� When coupled with the dedication (Vladimir Davydov), the temptation to speculate a very personal impetus is invariably irresistible for some. When considering this alongside his sudden death so quickly after the premiere, the Symphony No. 6 will likely always be veiled –or perhaps adorned– by conjecture. Tchaikovsky’s untimely death was the result of consuming untreated tap water during a cholera outbreak. It cannot be known for certain whether or not Tchaikovsky did so conscientiously in a reckless or careless manner. Regardless, the emotional charge of this symphony is so intense that it has become amongst the most popular symphonies in the orchestral repertoire. Some claim it is second only to Beethoven’s Fifth.

The second performance of this great work was Tchaikovsky’s memorial performance on November 6. Rimsky-Korsakov described that the “public greeted it rapturously, and since that moment the fame of the symphony has kept growing and growing, spreading gradually over Russian and Europe.� Tchaikovsky’s mark on the world has certainly endured. Regardless of the personal milieu, and whatever the impetus, it cannot be denied that Tchaikovsky’s Sixth is severely emotional. Mere days before his death, Tchaikovsky stated that “without exaggeration,� he had put his “whole soul in to this work.� If it is indeed a personal reflection, it is poignantly and painfully tormented at times while overtly heroic at others. Even without such connections, the Sixth evokes visceral responses ranging from all corners of both light and darkness.

Brass Transit was formed in 2008 and brought together 8 of the most talented and accomplished award winning musicians. Their sole purpose was to pay tribute to one of the world’s greatest and most successful pop/rock groups of all time, CHICAGO. Since then, the group has toured North America dazzling audiences with their flawless performances and spectacular attention to every detail of the CHICAGO songbook. Hits like: Saturday In The Park, 25 or 6 To 4, If You Leave Me Now, You’re The Inspiration have left crowds in awe and on their feet more than once during a show, evoking comments like “Spine--‐Tingling” “Brought me back to my youth” and “Perfect in every detail”. Brass Transit goes far beyond just imitating the songs, they embody the music. They recently produced their first CD taking top hits from the 70’s and recording them with horns in the CHICAGO style. The result is a fresh approach to some of the greatest hits of that era. They have also just recently scored their show for full Symphony with luscious orchestral arrangements that are truly spellbinding. Brass Transit will bring you back to the most memorable times of your life.

MR. TAMBOURINE MAN PROGRAM NOTES (continued) Mr. Tambourine Man: Seven Poems of Bob Dylan When Sylvia McNair asked me to write her a major song cycle for Carnegie Hall, she had only one request; to choose an American text. I have set only four poets in my adult compositional life: Stephen Spender, Richard Wilbur, Dylan Thomas (whose major works generated the oratorio A Dylan Thomas Trilogy) and William M. Hoffman, collaborator with me on, among other, shorter pieces, the opera The Ghosts of Versailles. Aside from asking Bill to create a new text, I had no ideas. Except that I had always heard, by reputation, of the high regard accorded the folk-ballad singer /songwriter Bob Dylan. But I was so engaged in developing my orchestral technique during the years when Dylan was heard by the rest of the world that I had never heard his songs. So I bought a collection of his texts, and found many of them to be every bit as beautiful and as immediate as I had heard-and surprisingly well-suited to my own musical language. I then contacted Jeff Rosen, his manager, who approached Bob Dylan with the idea of re-setting his poetry to my music. I do not know of an instance in which this has been done before (which was part of what appealed to me), so I needed to explain that these would be in no way arrangements, or variations, or in any way derivations of the music of the original songs, which I decided to not hear before the cycle was complete. Just as Schumann or Brahms or Wolf had re-interpreted in their own musical styles the same Goethe text, I intended to treat the Dylan lyrics as the poems I found them to be. Nor would their settings make any attempt at pop or rock writing. I wanted to take poetry I knew to be strongly associated with popular art and readdress it in terms of concert art-crossover in the opposite direction, one might say. Dylan granted his permission, and I set to work. I chose seven poems for what became a thirty-five minute cycle. A Prologue: Mr. Tambourine Man, in a

52

fantastic and exuberant manner, precedes five searching and reflective monologues that form the core of the piece; and Epilogue: Forever Young makes a kind of folk-song benediction after the cycle's close. Dramatically, the inner five songs trace a journey of emotional and civic maturation, from the innocence of Clothes Line through the beginnings of awareness of a wider world (Blowin' in the Wind), through the political fury of Masters of War, to a premonition of an apocalyptic future (All Along the Watchtower), culminating in a vision of a victory of ideas (Chimes of Freedom). Musically, each of the five songs introduces an accompanimental motive that becomes the principal motive of the next. The descending scale introduced in Clothes Line resurfaces as the passacaglia which shapes Blowin' in the Wind. The echoing pulse-notes of that song harden into the hammered ostinato under Masters of War; the stringent chords of that song's finale explode into the raucous accompaniment under All Along the Watchtower; and that song's repeated figures dissolve into the bell-sounds of Chimes of Freedom. Several years after composing the vocal/piano score I orchestrated the work. Since I did not want the soprano to have to sing in an "operatic" manner (with these Dylan texts), I specified that she be amplified. This way, she can project her voice over the orchestra while remaining intimate in her sound. The work is dedicated to Mark Adamo. — John Corigliano Voyage (from L'Invitation au Voyage, 1971) Voyage string orchestra (1976) is an instrumental version of a 1971 a cappella choral work that was a setting of Richard Wilbur's translation of Baudelaire's famous L'Invitation au voyage. Wilbur's poignant setting pictures a world of obsessive imagination — a drugged version of heaven full of sensual imagery. The music echoes the quality of the repeated refrain found in this lush translation: "There, there is nothing else but grace and measure, richness, quietness and pleasure." — John Corigliano

MR. TAMBOURINE MAN PROGRAM NOTES (continued) While it is thoroughly documented that Debussy despised the term impressionistic being applied to his work, the correlation does illuminate crucial elements. Impressionism in painting captures the essence of the subject by focusing on light contrasts, texture, and color. It seeks to allude to the moment as time passes. It neither ignores the affect of the setting nor restricts the style to previous techniques. Much in this same manner, the work of Debussy provides a holistic impression – regardless of whether or not there is an intended concrete subject. (In fact, some works that seem to have a subject are intentionally ambiguous, such as Voiles from his Préludes - the title of this work could be translated as sails or veils.)

Claude Debussy b. August 22, 1862, St. Germain-en-Laye, France d. March 25, 1918, Paris La mer Composed: 1903-1905, revised 1908 Premiered: October 15, 1905, Paris, conductor Camille Chevillard and the Concerts Lamoureux Approximate duration: 23 minutes Timeline Connections • 1889: World Fair in Paris (world music such as Javanese Gamelan influenced Parisian composers - notably Debussy) • 1893: Dvořák premiered his New World Symphony • 1901: First US speed limits for automobiles (10 MPH in cities, 15 in villages, and 20 MPH in rural areas) • 1905: Premiere of Arnold Schoenberg’s Pelleas und Melissande (Vienna) • 1910 :US Immigration at a peak with 8.8 million immigrants (1901-1910)

Perhaps one reason he rejected the term “impressionistic” in correlation to music is that the techniques utilized are not necessarily impressions of moments in time. To claim that his music is merely impressionistic would pigeonhole away the fantastic ramifications of his core techniques. Most notably, Debussy is proclaimed as a liberator of music from the confines of functional harmony. “Functional harmony” is the base of common-practice tonality, a system at the root of all Western music since its establishment in the Baroque era. Functional harmony is, in essence, the reason there is a sense of “home” in music - a pitch that feels like the center or end, and often provides musical punctuation. As an example, consider the first (or identical last) phrase of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star or the last line of Happy Birthday. Both comfortably finish on the “home” pitch (the tonic), and thus, provide a clear sense of tonality. Listeners expect the finish and feel rooted with its completion. If a happy partygoer were to sing the last bit of Happy Birthday and stopped before the final “you,” someone would undoubtedly feel compelled to finish. To claim that Debussy liberated music from this deeply rooted sense of expectation is quite extraordinary. Debussy often compositionally explores this liberation by alluding to tonality without actually settling on a tonic, or by settling in enough layers

53

MR. TAMBOURINE MAN PROGRAM NOTES (continued) of homes that the sense of expectation is thwarted. The result is utterly brilliant for a subject such as the sea (though fantastic in its own right without an extramusical theme in mind). One can easily imagine the waters of the ocean as the wafting and drifting sea of tonal ambiguity rises and falls. It could be noted that Debussy was not the only composer working to liberate music from the common-practice confines. He was contemporary with the early atonal work of Arnold Schoenberg, an Austrian composer associated with German Expressionism. By the time of La mer, Schoenberg had likewise begun to seek ways to abandon tonality (though his Pelleas und Melissande of the same year is considered evolutionary rather than an example of the revolution which was to come). Schoenberg worked toward this goal by building levels of dissonance rather than layers of homes. Where Debussy may allude to numerous tonics in order to liberate his music from the confines of one home, Schoenberg sought to avoid any sense of home by “resolving” one dissonance to a lesser dissonance, thereby -as he would put it- creating the “emancipation of dissonance” (a phrase he himself first used in the 1920s). Schoenberg later developed an entire strict system of composition (12-tone serialism) in a dutiful effort to push music forward into new realms. The result of these efforts was quite terrifying at times, though arguably equally awe-inspiring.

Debussy, on the other hand, conscientiously sought an absence of theory. He utilized timbre (tone color) as the point rather than an effect; he explored texture and temporal space for the sake of themselves rather than a means to a different end. Though the connections to Impressionism may be tempting in this light, the work of Debussy endeavors to be beyond any such confines. In his words, “there is no theory. You have only to listen. Pleasure is the law. I love music passionately. And because I love it, I try to free it from barren traditions that stifle it. It is a free art gushing forth, an open-air art boundless as the elements, the wind, the sky, the sea. It must never be shut in and become an academic art.” La mer is no exception to this philosophy. Subtitled Three Symphonic Sketches and birthed of his childhood love of the sea, La mer is a fantastic journey utilizing musical language that at once seems familiar and strange. It suggests and alludes but ultimately rejects traditional confines. Its only law is pleasure. “The sound of the sea, the curve of a horizon, wind in leaves, the cry of a bird leave manifold impression in us. And suddenly, without our wishing it at all, one of these memories spills from us and finds expression in musical language… I want to sing my interior landscape with the simple artlessness of a child.” - Debussy
