FROM THE BOARD PRESIDENT Welcome and thank you for joining us to celebrate our 56th year of supporting the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale and inspiring a love of quality music in the generations that follow us. We are united by a belief in the MOSC as both a valuable cultural asset and as an educational outreach to children and parents throughout the Permian Basin. As a parent of two teenagers that have grown up with the MOSC, I can personally attest to the enrichment they have received growing up in a world of music. We are honored to continue the tradition of sharing the performance of world-class orchestral music, a timeless repertoire, internationally renowned music talents, and our very own MOSC’s accomplished and gifted musicians. Our 2018-19 Season begins with our celebrated Masterworks Series of classical music. Over the course of four performances, we will transport you from the musical streets of New York to Rome to the fields and forests of Eastern Europe. The Pops & Family Series opens with a performance of the Grammy-winning Indigo Girls, backed by our musicians, and finishing with a tribute to the music of Elton John & Billy Joel. The Pops Series will also include our annual holiday performance and a celebration of the dancing skills of Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, and Gene Kelly. Scattered between these programs, be on the lookout for additional performances by the chorale and our ensembles. At a time when many symphonies around the country are struggling, the MOSC is proud to be a part of a community that both values and generously supports the arts. Your patronage and generosity enable us to continue to provide outstanding orchestral music to our community. The MOSC’s continued success depends in large part on your continuing support. On behalf of our dedicated staff, talented musicians, and our Board of Directors, I would like to thank you — our loyal patrons, donors, and sponsors — for your continued support. We hope that you enjoy tonight’s performance and return with your family and friends for many more to come! David Lauritzen MOSC Board President

FROM THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR Welcome to Tonight’s Concert! We are so pleased that you have chosen to join us here tonight as your presence supports MOSC as the premiere arts organization in the Permian Basin. You may be surprised to learn that MOSC provides a wide variety of music entertainment and enrichment throughout the season in addition to our Masterworks and Pops & Family Concerts. We have a youth choir (Voices of the Permian Basin) of over seventy voices and an adult choir (Symphony Chorale) of a similar size, both performing concerts throughout the season. Our three instrumental ensembles, Lone Star Brass, Permian Basin Strings and the West Texas Winds perform two chamber concerts per year, participate in our music education programs at ECISD and MISD schools and are available to book for special events. We are so proud to bring quality music to our community and can continue to do so because of your patronage. As the case with most symphony orchestras throughout the United States, MOSC’s ticket revenue covers only 22% of our annual expenses. We rely on our annual fund drive donations, concert sponsorships, guild donations, endowment distributions, annual fundraiser concert revenue and grant revenue to achieve the remaining 78% of our needed revenue. Along with your attendance at our many events, we also hope you will consider supporting MOSC by donating to the annual fund drive or providing a Legacy gift to our endowment that supports MOSC now and in perpetuity. As a non-profit 501(c)3 organization, your support through all our giving-opportunities is tax deductible. To make a donation, use our website at mosc.org or contact Violet Singh, our Development Director who will be happy to visit with you about making a Legacy gift or other financial support. We hope you enjoy our concerts throughout the season as much as we enjoy bringing them to you. Again, thank you for making MOSC such an important presence in the Basin. Jeannette Kolokoff MOSC Executive Director

FROM THE MUSIC DIRECTOR Welcome to this exciting new season of the Midland-Odessa Symphony Orchestra! We are delighted you are joining us for these fantastic programs, all of which I know you will enjoy. We are delighted to share this great orchestra performing incredible music along with the terrific artists we have engaged for you. I cannot think of a better way to begin the season than with our tribute to the legendary Leonard Bernstein. We will celebrate the 100th anniversary of his birth with the orchestral suite from On the Waterfront along with guest vocalists David Corman and Rose Sawvel singing selections from Candide. In November we’ll bring you Beethoven’s lovely “Pastoral” Symphony No. 6 along with the incredible Catalin Rotaru playing Tchaikovsky’s masterpiece for cello on the Double Bass! The January program is packed with three exciting works, Mason Bates’ fun electronica groove for orchestra, Mothership, Rachmaninoff’s thrilling Third Piano Concerto with guest artist David Korevaar, and the exhilarating Ninth Symphony of Shostakovich. And we bring the Masterworks series to a close with the perennial favorite of Respighi, The Pines of Rome, along with the electrifying new concerto for alto saxophone, Rush, by American composer Kenneth Fuchs. Timothy McAllister, multiple Grammy award-winning saxophonist, recently recorded this work with the London Symphony Orchestra and he will truly amaze you! As always, our Pops and Family Series has something for everyone. I am so pleased to have conducted on the Indigo Girls’ newly released album. They are incredible songwriters and performers and I know you will love this program. What a rare treat to be able to hear them live in the Permian Basin! Our “Sounds of the Season” will once again ring in the holiday season in style, featuring the orchestra, Chorale, Voices of the Permian Basin and all of the fantastic ensembles of the MOSC. In March, “Dancing and Romancing” will combine Broadway and Hollywood, song and dance, in the tradition of Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. And finally, our friends with Jeans ‘n Classics return with a sensational evening of the music of Elton John and Billy Joel. Please know how much we appreciate your patronage and support for this wonderful orchestra and the entire MOSC organization. We simply cannot bring this great music to the Permian Basin, and remain an important part of the culture of our communities, without your help. Please be sure to also attend the many wonderful performances by the Chorale, our youth choir The Voices of the Permian Basin, along with the outstanding ensembles of the MOSC, West Texas Winds, Lone Star Brass, and Permian Basin String Quartet. These groups are always inspiring and engaging and you don’t want to miss them! Please join us for all the great concerts this season as we fulfill our mission to enrich lives in the Permian Basin through great music. I look forward to seeing you at the concerts! Gary Lewis MOSC Music Director & Conductor

2018 - 2019 PRESIDENT, MIDLAND SYMPHONY GUILD Midland Symphony Guild (MSG) is blessed to begin its 56th year of supporting the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale (MOSC). 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 demonstrably into a self-sustaining non-profit organization that provides annually increasing financial and volunteer hour support to MOSC and the various productions and events that it produces. MOSC enriches the communities of both Midland and Odessa 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 alone, 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 volunteer for 15 separate events or placements in their years in the MSG program (8th – 12th grades), many of which include performances presented by MOSC. This requirement of service fosters both a sense of giving back to the community and appreciation for the work ethic and commitment demonstrated by the talented artists and musicians. In addition to MOSC, our Belles volunteer at community organizations such as Safe Place, Midland Festival Ballet, Museum of the Southwest, Arts Council of Midland, Permian Basin Opera, Midland Community Theater, and the Wagner Noel Performing Arts Center. We are so proud of our Belles. We have two special events for our Belles that we host each year. We formally present our Freshman Belles at one of the Masterworks concerts in the fall; it is a special night. In early February 2019, we will host our Gala Weekend. This annual tradition is our single biggest fund raising event for the year, providing an opportunity to highlight MOSC and the Guild’s connection to fine arts in the Permian Basin, and to showcase the many accomplishments of our Senior Belles. The weekend includes a black-tie dinner and dance to honor our Senior Belles, and many members and patrons, for their years of service to MSG and the Midland community. It is my privilege to serve as president for Midland Symphony Guild this year. I look forward to the opportunity to work alongside many wonderful men and women while also having the privilege to encounter exceptional musical and fine arts performances. For our Belles, friendships will be formed, a spirit of service instilled, and a love of the arts encouraged. Thank you to the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale for enriching our lives for another season. Jill C. Pennington 2018-2019 President Midland Symphony Guild

2018 - 2019 PRESIDENT, ODESSA SYMPHONY GUILD The Odessa Symphony Guild (OSG) is proud to celebrate our diamond anniversary this year, providing 60 years of continuous support of the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale (MOSC). The OSG was founded in 1958 by a group of ladies who were passionate about bringing fine arts and culture to West Texas and did so by forming an organization to provide financial and volunteer support to local music programs. Over the decades, the OSG has grown into a non-profit organization that has raised thousands of dollars to fund MOSC educational programs and concerts. The MOSC brings first class musicians to our area to enrich the lives of West Texans with their chorale, ensemble and full orchestra performances. For the last 60 years, hundreds of OSG active members, Patrons, Belles and Beaux have supported the MOSC by contributing financially, promoting concerts, selling memberships, ushering at concerts, hosting receptions, serving musicians breakfast, setting up for Soundbite Suppers and attending concerts. The OSG established the Symphony Belle and Beaux program to expose Odessa teens to the arts through volunteerism. Daughters and sons of guild members volunteer through the Belle/Beaux program from 9th through 12th grade. The Belles distribute programs at the concerts, and the Beaux escort attendees into concerts, many times helping attendees out of their cars and into the building. The interpersonal skills, poise and etiquette these young people learn during their four years of service is valuable as we strive to prepare the next generation of Odessa/Midland leaders and supporters of the arts. In February 2019, we will host our Annual Symphony Gala Ball at the Odessa Country Club. The Ball is the OSG’s primary fundraiser to benefit the MOSC. This special evening is also focused on honoring our Senior Belles and Beaux who have served the OSG through 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 us for this year’s diamond celebration as we honor these outstanding young people who have excelled academically, served as school leaders and volunteered their time to support MOSC and many other community organizations. 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 musical arts while growing our organization. We would like to congratulate the Midland-Odessa Symphony & Chorale on their 56th season of enriching our community through beautiful music. Jacqui Gore 2018-2019 President Odessa Symphony Guild

M E E T T H E A R T I S T David Korevaar, piano Pianist David Korevaar, whose playing has been called a “musical epiphany” by Gramophone Magazine, has an extensive and varied repertoire enhanced by his work with living composers and his own experience writing music. He balances his active career as a soloist and chamber musician with teaching at the University of Colorado Boulder, where he is the Peter and Helen Weil Professor of Piano and was named a 2016 Distinguished Research Lecturer, a significant honor given to one or two members of the Boulder faculty each year. Since his New York debut at Town Hall in 1985, David Korevaar has performed throughout the USA including concerts in Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC, Dallas, Houston, Cincinnati, San Diego as well as tours to Europe, and Asia. He has been heard at major venues in New York including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, and Merkin Concert Hall, and frequently performs in his home state of Colorado. International performances have included appearances in Australia, Japan, Korea, Abu Dhabi and Europe. He presented his London debut at Wigmore Hall and his German recital debut at the Heidelberg Spring Festival, and has performed and taught in Kazakhstan and Tajikistan as a cultural envoy under the sponsorship of the United States Department of State. Korevaar has performed as guest artist with the Takács, Manhattan and Colorado Quartets, among others. For many years he performed as a member of the Dallas-based Clavier Trio; he was also a founding member of the Prometheus and Boulder Piano Quartets. A winner of the Young Concert Artists Competition, he was a founding member of the Young Concert Artists award-winning piano and wind ensemble Hexagon, with which he toured for many years. Korevaar’s growing discography includes numerous recordings, including a new release of favorite Chopin works, as well as a collaboration with violinist Charles Wetherbee on world premiere recordings of works by Tibor Harsányi. His recent releases of solo discs of Schubert and Hindemith have been widely acclaimed. Two years ago, he released his fourth recording of the music of JS Bach, a two-disc set of the Six Partitas for Keyboard BWV 825-830. In addition, his collaboration with members of the Takacs Quartet has resulted in a number of releases, including a new recording of the Hindemith Sonatas for Viola and Piano with Geraldine Walther, as well as a disc of Brahms with Walther and cellist Andras Fejer (MSR) and a recording of two Beethoven Violin Sonatas with violinist Edward Dusinberre (Decca). His broad musical interests are reflected in recordings ranging from the Bach Goldberg Variations (Ivory Classics), the two books of Well-Tempered Clavier (MSR Classics), to four discs dedicated to the music of Lowell Liebermann (Koch Classics). Other recordings include chamber music by American composer David Carlson and a critically acclaimed release of French piano music from the Ricardo Viñes Piano Music Collection at the University of Colorado (Koch). He has also recorded Beethoven’s Sonatas No. 28, 16 and 32, Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin, Gaspard de la nuit, and Miroirs, Brahms Variations for Piano, Dohnányi’s romantic virtuoso compositions, and transcriptions (his own and Liszt's) of Liszt’s orchestral music, including the rarely heard 2nd Mephisto Waltz. Additional recordings in his discography include a CD with the Prometheus Quartet featuring music by 19th-Century Frenchmen Saint-Saëns and d'Indy, the complete sonatas for brass instruments by Paul Hindemith, and the Brahms Violin Sonatas with violinist Anastasia Khitruk. He is looking forward to the release of two recordings made in the summer of 2017, one of new works by Lowell Liebermann (a third volume of his solo piano music) and one of solo piano music by the early twentieth-century Italian composer Luigi Perrachio.

Korevaar's interest in new music is reflected in his programming. His essay on what he looks for in new music was featured in New Music Box. In addition to his continuing association with the music of Lowell Liebermann, Korevaar has performed and recorded music by composers including David Carlson, Robert Xavier Rodriguez, Paul Schoenfield, Mike Barnett, Aaron Jay Kernis, George Rochberg, Aaron Copland, Ned Rorem, Stephen Jaffe, Scott Eyerly and Libby Larson. He gave the New York premiere of three of Harrison Birtwistle's Harrison's Clocks as part of the Juilliard School's Piano Century series. The Clavier Trio gave the world premiere of Robert Xavier Rodriguez's Sor(tri)lege in February 2008 in Dallas, followed by its New York premiere at Weill Hall. In addition to his position at the University of Colorado Boulder, Korevaar teaches and performs at the Music in the Mountains summer festival in Durango, CO, and the Music Center Japan. Korevaar was honored along with co-author and Webmaster Tim Smith of Northern Arizona University for a web-based exploration of the Fugues of the Well-Tempered Clavier, featuring analytical essays and animations by Professor Smith, performance-related essays by Korevaar, and Korevaar's performances of the music. The site received top honors both in music and overall, including the Editors' Choice Award from MERLOT (Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching). In May 2000 he received the Richard French award from the Juilliard School, honoring his doctoral document on Ravel's Miroirs. Other honors include top prizes from the University of Maryland William Kapell International Piano Competition (1988) and the Peabody-Mason Music Foundation (1985), as well as a special prize for his performance of French music from the Robert Casadesus Competition (1989). David Korevaar began his piano studies at age six in San Diego with Sherman Storr, and at age 13 he became a student of the great American virtuoso Earl Wild. By age 20 he had earned his Bachelor's and Master's degrees from the Juilliard School, where he continued his studies with Earl Wild and studied composition with David Diamond. He completed his Doctor of Musical Arts from the Juilliard School with Abbey Simon. Another important mentor and teacher was the French pianist Paul Doguereau, who had been a student of Egon Petri, and who had studied the music of FaurĂŠ and Debussy with Roger- Ducasse (a pupil of FaurĂŠ's), and the music of Ravel with the composer. Prior to joining the faculty of the University of Colorado in 2000, Korevaar taught for many years at the Westport School of Music in Connecticut, where he was Artist-Teacher. David is a Kawai artist and resides with his family in Boulder, Colorado, and Dallas, Texas. DavidKorevaar.com

Bates, a DJ and curator as well as a composer, is a native of Richmond, Virginia, where he began his formal musical training at St. Christopher’s school. His first work for orchestra was commissioned when he was just 16 years old, and he received a PhD in composition from the University of California, Berkley in 2008. His eclectic tastes and unique skill set led him to form Mercury Soul, which programs classical music with DJ sets in a variety of venues. He has won prestigious honors such as the 2018 Musical America Composer of the Year, 2008 Guggenheim Fellowship, and the 2004 Rome Prize. He was the Chicago Symphony’s Mead composer-in-residence from 2010-2015. Some of his major works are the score for the movie Sea of Trees starring Matthew McConaughey and The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs, an electronic opera based on the life of the legendary founder of Apple Computer. Mothership combines Bate’s traditional compositional chops with his knowledge of

popular music and his love of electronica. The piece was premiered with the composer performing the electronica, but the piece can also be performed with these sounds pre-recorded. The YouTube Symphony commissioned this work as only the second commission in the history of the ensemble. Conceived of by conductor Michael Tilson-Thomas, the YouTube Symphony recruited all its members through online auditions and livestreams all of its performances on YouTube. The piece includes four improvised solos which, in the premier, were performed by musicians who were selected through an online audition process. In the words of the composer: “The piece follows the form of a scherzo with double trio (as found in, for example, the Schumann Symphony No. 2). Symphonic scherzos historically play with dance rhythms in a high-energy and appealing manner, with the ‘trio’ sections temporarily exploring new rhythmic areas. Mothership shares a formal connection with the symphonic scherzo but is brought to life by thrilling sounds of the 21st Century — the rhythms of modern-day techno in place of waltz rhythms, for example.” Bates envisions the orchestra as a “mothership” to which the soloists dock and provide elaboration on the content of the music. A wonderful piece to open a concert, Mothership provides audiences with an exciting, unique experience that blends familiar orchestral sounds with new electronic techniques. Sergei Rachmaninoff b.

THE RUSSIANS (continued) • 1907: Finland first country to give women the right to vote • 1908: Teddy Roosevelt declares the Grand Canyon a national monument • 1909: Keel of the Titanic laid down in Belfast, Ireland, Rachmaninoff writes Piano Concerto No. 3 Sergei Rachmaninoff was a talented and acclaimed composer, virtuoso pianist, and conductor. Born in Russia in 1873, he was one of the last of the Russian Romantic composers, as this style was beginning to give way to the modernism of the 20th century. As a child in a musical family, he began piano at the age of four and graduated from the Moscow Conservatory at the age of 19. After his First Symphony was poorly received, he dealt with four years of debilitating depression. His depression ended up improving through therapy, and he began to compose and tour again. Rachmaninoff lost most of his possessions during WWI and the subsequent Russian Revolution, and he began to tour more in the United States to improve his financial situation (he hoped to buy a car) and eventually officially relocated in 1918. Eventually moving to Beverly Hills for the climate, Sergei Rachmaninoff passed away in 1943. Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote the Piano Concerto No. 3 in d minor while living in Dresden with his family to avoid the steadily worsening political

turmoil in Russia. He wrote the Third Piano Concerto specifically for his first American tour to take place in 1909. Because Rachmaninoff was one of the great Romantic piano soloists in the tradition of Chopin and Liszt and he wrote the piece for himself, the music is quite difficult and is even feared among many pianists. Due to his rush to complete the piece, he was not able to practice it in Russia. Rather, he had to learn the piece on a silent keyboard on his trip to the United States. The piece walks the line between concerto and symphony in much the same way as the piano concertos of Brahms. The first movement of the work is built upon a simple melody, often called the “Russian Hymn” that is elaborated into ever increasing complexity. The movement features two cadenzas, the second of which has two different versions written by the composer. The cadenza includes a portion with wind solos and acts as the recapitulation, so the movement ends with a coda directly after the adenza. The second movement begins with an orchestral introduction. This gives the pianist his or her only breather in the entire work. The piano dramatically restates the melody presented by the woodwinds and strings in the introduction. The “Russian Hymn” from the opening of the first movement comes back in this movement in the clarinet and bassoon. A transitional flourish in the piano and forceful impacts from the brass leads directly into the third movement, the

THE RUSSIANS (continued) Finale. The final movement is in an A-B-A form. The outer sections feature a contrast between rhythmic ideas with a very beautiful lyrical melody. The middle section is based on music from the first movement and contains a lyrical middle section with a lively scherzando flanking it. The piece finally moves from d minor to D Major at the very end in a closing moment that is both poignant and triumphant. Dimitri Shostakovich b. September 25, 1906. St. Petersburg, Russia d. August 9, 1975. Moscow, Russia Symphony No. 9 in E-flat major, Op. 70 Composed: 1945 Premiered: November 3, 1945 by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Yevgeny Mravinsky.

Born 11 years before the revolution of 1917, he grew up in a moderately wealthy family and attended the same schools as the children of Leon Trotsky. His family made music frequently in the house, and Shostakovich entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory in 1919. Shostakovich was associated with the modernist wing of the Soviet music scene as a young man. This was not initially a problem, as the Soviet Communist Party under Lenin was more concerned with addressing the economic crises and dislocations due to the revolution, WWI, and the world-wide

THE RUSSIANS (continued) economic depression. Under these conditions, Dimitri Shostakovich began his compositional career and was well received around the world. His Symphony No. 1 premiered in 1926 to broad acclaim. In 1934, Shostakovich premiered his opera Lady Macbeth of the Mtensk District. This modernist and gritty opera was initially well received until Stalin attended a performance in 1936. Peter Burkholder observed that Stalin was angered by its “discordant modernist music and surrealistic, often grostesque portrayal of violence and sex.” Stalin, who took power in the mid-1920s, was in the process of brutally consolidating his power and exercising his control over the artistic life of the USSR. An article was printed in Pravda, the state newspaper of the USSR, denouncing Shostakovich who now feared for his life. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 was premiered in 1937 to great acclaim throughout the Soviet Union. The composer himself endorsed a description of the work as “a Soviet artist’s reply to just criticism.” This work rehabilitated Shostakovich in the eyes of the state and allowed him to continue to work. He was denounced again in 1948 and could only write film music and propaganda music publicly. He continued to write serious music “for the desk drawer” that he had no hope of ever hearing performed. In 1979, a set of memoirs were discovered that many believe were written by Shostakovich. They tell a story of a composer who was severely dissatisfied and disillusioned with this treatment by the Communist Party. Due to the fact that authorship of these memoirs has been difficult to establish, musicologists still debate whether his rehabilitation was sincere or if he was including covert subversive elements even in the music that was endorsed by the State. Symphony No. 9, written and premiered in 1945, went through an interesting evolution from the time Shostakovich first began talking about it until it was written and premiered. Due to the long shadow cast by Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, composers often carefully consider how they will approach their ninth work in this genre. Shostakovich initially talked of writing a large-scale work including chorus

and solo singers to express the victory of the Soviet people. The work that he wrote and premiered, however, was completely different. The Ninth Symphony is a smaller-scale, Neoclassical work more similar to Haydn in form and wit than to Beethoven. It was initially well received, but later Soviet critics criticized it for not being triumphant enough, for not having the correct ideology, and for not reflecting the spirit of the Soviet People. The work was banned on February 14, 1948 in his second denunciation. The first movement contains an opening theme that could have been written by Haydn. The movement continues with this light air, although repeated musical “curve-balls” are thrown at the audience in the form of extra beats, trills on unexpected notes, and unusual modulations. The trombone has a two-note motif that it interjects in a different place in the recapitulation than it did in the opening of the piece. The second movement is a lightly-orchestrated waltz more reminiscent of chamber music than of the slow movement of a symphony. The third movement, marked Presto, is an energetic, flashy movement with melodies constantly being traded between the woodwinds and the strings. The fourth movement opens with a very serious fanfare in the trombones and tubas. This short movement trades between these fanfares and mournful bassoon cadenzas. The last movement is in the rondo form frequently found in Classical Era works. The initial melody continues to return after episodes of contrasting material. The conductor of the premier, Yevgeny Mravinsky, said of the piece: “To be sure, not all the symphony is ironic – it contains both tender lyricism and deep sadness. The insouciant or frivolous “light-heartedness” of the first movement (think of the secondary subject!) and the element of deliberate and labored gaiety in the finally express, not the composer’s own feelings, but those of his opposite – the self-satisfied, short-sighted philistine who is essentially indifferent to everything.” Shostakovich summed up the piece more succinctly: “It is a merry little piece. Musicians will love to play it and critics will delight in blasting it.” 37

A R T I S T S

The quintessential song and dance man, Kirby Ward has entertained the world over, performing for queens, presidents, first ladies and dignitaries on nearly every continent on the globe. Born a California boy, he’s lived and played in Los Angeles, New York, London, China, Australia, Europe, Japan and now makes his home in Connecticut while continuing to travel the world as an actor, writer, director and choreographer.

When cast as Bobby Child in the London production of Crazy For You, Kirby packed up his family and moved the whole bunch to Kensington for a year. His portrayal of the lead character in this West End premier netted him an Olivier award nomination as well as the honor of meeting and performing for the royal family on the Queen Mum’s birthday. You can hear him on the original London cast album for First Night Records. As an actor he’s run the gamut of song and dance roles, playing every “Billy” or “Bobby” from My One and Only to 42nd Street, and a couple of Don’s and Tom’s thrown in to mix things up (That would be Singin’ in the Rain and No No Nanette for those keeping score). Departing from the song and dance motif has lead Kirby into such roles as King Herod in Jesus Christ Superstar, Arnolph in School For Wives, Vernon in They’re Playin’ Our Song, and even a stint as Che in Evita. New York area audiences have seen Kirby’s work on Broadway in Hal Prince’s Show Boat! (Frank Schultz), Woman of the Year at the Palace, Never Gonna Dance at the Broadhurst and in the Off-Broadway revival cast of Cocoanuts, (Harvey) and in Company (David). His direction and choreography in the metro area for Dames at Sea, The Jazz Singer and Grease were all critically acclaimed. On television he’s appeared on Law and Order, Special Victims Unit, General Hospital, The Tonight Show, and numerous commercials. Film appearances include For the Boys, Pennies From Heaven and S.O.B. Kirby was honored to portray Bob Hope at the Library of Congress’ celebration for Mr. Hope’s 100th Birthday, an event hosted by legendary Dick Cavett. In Los Angeles Kirby choreographed portions of Debbie Reynolds’ and Donald O’Connor’s Las Vegas acts, appearing in both for a number of years as a singer and dancer and trained Bette Midler and James Caan in song and dance technique for the 20th Century Fox film For The Boys. He rounds out his contribution to the entertainment field by writing for television for Hanna Barbera Studios and the regional stage as one of the creators of the musical The Gypsy King at the Village Theatre in Ithaca, WA. Recently, his original short film Down in the Mouth was awarded best short film at the Kent Film Festival in Kent, CT. kirbyward.com

Timothy McAllister, alto saxophone Classical saxophonist Timothy McAllister has been hailed as “a virtuoso, one of the foremost saxophonists of his generation” (The New York Times) and “a titan of contemporary music and the instrument, in general” (The Cleveland Plain Dealer), with performances lauded as “astonishing” (The Sydney Morning Herald), “phenomenal” (St. Louis Post-Dispatch) and "proving brilliantly up to enormous demands" (The Dallas Morning News). He is one of today’s premier concert soloists, a member of the 2018 GRAMMY®-winning PRISM Saxophone Quartet, and a champion of contemporary music credited with over 40 recordings and 200 premieres of new compositions by eminent and emerging composers worldwide. McAllister's rise to international fame came in 2009 with his celebrated work in John Adams’s City Noir, filmed as part of Gustavo Dudamel’s inaugural concert as Music Director of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, and the World Premiere of John Adams’s Saxophone Concerto in August 2013 with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra under the baton of the composer in the Sydney Opera House. Subsequent performances included the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, St. Louis Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, Cabrillo Festival Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Bilkent Symphony, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, Zagreb Philharmonic, and the New World Symphony, among others. As part of the 70th Birthday celebrations worldwide honoring John Adams in 2017, he performed the Saxophone Concerto with the Houston Symphony Orchestra, Netherlands Radio Orchestra in the Concertgebouw, Orchestre National de Lyon, Indianapolis Symphony, along with other performances and recordings of Adams’s music, including City Noir, with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, San Diego Symphony, and the Berlin Philharmonic. To date he has appeared with over forty of the world's top orchestras and wind ensembles in fifteen countries, and he has the distinction of being only the second saxophonist to appear as soloist in the 120-year history of the BBC Proms concerts. He has recorded for the Nonesuch, ECM, Deutsche Grammophon, Stradivarius, Soundset, Centaur, Albany, Naxos, Equilibrium, New Focus, AUR, Summit, New Dynamic, Parma, XAS/Naxos, and Innova labels. McAllister won a 2015 GRAMMY® Award with the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra and David Robertson as soloist on the album "John Adams: City Noir" featuring the Saxophone Concerto. His recording of Kenneth Fuchs’s Saxophone Concerto, RUSH, with JoAnn Falletta and the London Symphony Orchestra will be released on NAXOS in 2018. Deutsche Grammophon will release his recording of Guillaume Connesson’s Saxophone Concerto ‘A Kind of Trane’ with the Brussels Philharmonic and conductor Stephane Deneve in 2019. A revered teacher of his instrument, he is regularly invited to appear at the world's leading conservatories, music festivals, and summer academies. Previously on the faculty of Northwestern University, he was appointed Professor of Saxophone at the University of Michigan School of Music, Theatre and Dance in September 2014, succeeding his legendary mentor, the American classical saxophonist Donald Sinta. www.timothymcallister.com 50

PINES OF ROME Masterworks: Pines of Rome Program Notes Dr. Martin King © 2019 Kristin Kuster b. 1973. Raleigh, North Carolina Rain On It Composed: 2012 Premiered: March 2012, Ann Arbor, Michigan. Kenneth Kiesler conducting the University of Michigan Symphony Orchestra. The Work in Context • 2009: Bank of America bailed out by the US government • 2010: Avatar becomes the fastest movie to earn $1 billion • 2011: Last American veteran of WWI dies at age 110 • 2012: Encyclopedia Britannica ends print publication, Rain On It premiered • 2013: Pope Benedict XVI resigns A native of Raleigh NC who grew up in Boulder, Colorado, Kristin Kuster “writes commandingly for the orchestra” and her music “has an invitingly tart edge” (The New York Times). Kuster currently serves as Associate Professor of Composition at the University of Michigan, where she received her Doctorate. Her teachers have included William Bolcom, Michael Daugherty, and William Albright. Her music has recently been premiered by the Baltimore Symphony, the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and the United States Air Force Heritage Brass Ensemble among many others. Kristin Kuster lives in Ann Arbor with her son with special needs and enjoys all the outdoor activities that the state of Michigan has to offer. Rain On It is an overture-length work for orchestra that captures the soundscape that the composer experiences during a rainstorm. Kuster took musical material that she wrote during two transitional times in her life and reimagined it in this piece. The music has a constant rhythmic drive in the percussion that is joined in a variety of ways by the winds and strings. Kristin Kuster’s father was a meteorologist, and she writes that every time it rains, she feels as if she is with him. She writes about the piece, “I love rain. . . In this music, I

freeze an instant of imagined rain, fully static, non-passing, and still. Yet I stretch and dwell within this moment to capture a mood, which celebrates the relentless intensity of time…After the rain, there is newness and joy.” Kenneth Fuchs b. July 1, 1956.

He currently holds a position as Professor of Music Composition at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut. His music has been heard at the National September 11 Memorial and Museum, in concert halls around the world, and he has recorded five albums of his music on the Naxos label with JoAnn Falletta conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. He has been commissioned by bands, orchestras, and choirs from around the world. Robert R. Reilly says in his book Surprised by Beauty: A Listener’s Guide to the Recovery of Modern Music, "There is little in contemporary music that is as directly expressive as the music of Kenneth Fuchs. It goes right to the heart and stays there. If you think America's song has already been sung, you need to listen to him." Fuchs studied composition at the University of Miami and The Julliard School with such prominent composers as Milton Babbitt, David Del Tredici, Vincent Persichetti, and Alfred Reed.

He has been a member of the Commission on Accreditation for the National Association of Schools of Music. In this role, he helped schools of music around the country evaluate their curricula and employ best practices for university music pedagogy. Kenneth Fuchs has made a major mark on music making in America throughout his career as a composer, educator, and administrator. Rush: Concerto for Alto Saxophone and Orchestra draws upon the composer’s experience growing up in New York City and the music he was surrounded by in this place and time. The work is in two movements. The first movement is a lovely jazz ballade where the performer has the time and space to explore the expressive possibilities of Fuchs’ beautiful melodies. Fuchs was inspired by the music of performers such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald and wrote a saxophone solo that allows the performer to sing. The second movement is lively and technically difficult while still capturing the lyricism displayed so prominently in the first movement. It opens with an extended cadenza that introduces a harmonic language based on the blues. The rest of the movement is a passacaglia with a them and ten variations. The work ends with virtuoso technical “fireworks” in the saxophone that end the piece with an air of triumph. This work was recorded by the London

William Grant Still was the son of two teachers, but his father passed away when young Still was only three months old. Upon her husband’s death, Still’s mother moved with him to Little Rock, Arkansas where she taught English for 33 years. William Grant Still’s stepfather helped Still develop his love of music. He graduated high school at sixteen and had already taught himself to play a number of instruments. He earned a Bachelor of Science (at the insistence of his mother, who wanted him to be a doctor), but he was involved in music throughout his degree and went to graduate school at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. Still served in the US Navy during WWI. After the war, he wrote arrangements for W.C. Handy and performed as an oboist. His early compositions were quite modernist, but he achieved a breakthrough when he took his teacher George Whitefield Chadwick’s advice and began to incorporate the sounds of African American music into his work. His best-known work was his first symphony, titled “Afro-American,” which was premiered in 1931. Using blues as a major musical source rather than spirituals, William Grant Still said that blues, “unlike many spirituals, do not exhibit the influence of Caucasian music.” Still moved to Los Angeles in 1934 to write music for movies and television. William Grant Still wrote a number of pieces that brought attention to the struggle for civil rights, such as And They Lynched Him On A Tree in 1940 and In Memoriam: The Colored Soldiers Who Died For Democracy in 1944. Still died in 1978 having made an indelible mark on American music and paving the way for generations of African American musicians. Romance for Saxophone is a short, lyrical work originally written for saxophone and piano. Works for saxophone and orchestra are rare, and Still’s Romance is one of the few works for saxophone and orchestra by an African American composer. The work wasn’t published until 1966. At this time, most of Still’s music had been forgotten, and he was writing much more chamber music than large-scale works. The work opens with a stunning, lyrical melody in the saxophone that is in a late-Romantic style with few references to the African American music for which he is known. The middle section

has a free feeling that feels more improvisatory. The initial song-like music returns at the end of the piece to bring it to moving conclusion. Romance for Saxophone allows the soloist to express the lyrical possibilities of the instrument in this beautifully written work. Ottorino Respighi b. July 9, 1879. Bologna, Italy d. April 18, 1936.

The Work in Context • 1922: Mohandas Gandhi sentenced to six years for civil disobedience. • 1923: Sound put on movie film for the first time • 1924: Ice cream cone rolling machine invented, Pines of Rome premiered • 1925: Chrysler Corporation founded Ottorino Respighi was an Italian violinist, composer, educator, and musicologist who spent most of his career in Rome. Born into a musical family in Bologna, he began studying piano with his father at an early age. At the age of 21, he accepted the position of principal violin for the Italian opera season of the Russian Imperial Theater in St. Petersburg. During his years playing in Russia, he took composition lessons with the great Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, who is still admired as a great orchestrator to this day. Although he did not have many lessons with Rimsky-Korsakov, Respighi considered these lessons to be highly influential on his compositional style. He continued to perform and compose in Italy, Russia, and Germany until he landed a permanent teaching position in Rome in 1913. Although he at times made common cause with more modernist composers, Respighi was a conservative at heart who loved the Italian musical tradition. He had an active interest in musicology, and published numerous transcriptions of the works of Renaissance-era Italian composers. He composed operas that had some success in the 53

PINES OF ROME (continued) stylistic tradition of Verdi and Puccini. His breakthrough as a composer came in 1917 with the premier of his orchestral tone poem, Fountains of Rome. Following in the success of these works, he wrote two sequels, Pines of Rome and Roman Festivals in 1924 and 1928, respectively. Respighi continued to compose and teach in Rome until his death in 1936. Pines of Rome is a work that has thrilled audiences with its vivid colors and dramatic conclusion since its premier in 1924. It contains one of the most dramatic, long crescendos in the orchestral repertoire in the fourth movement. In conceiving of this work, Respighi thought of the various events that the pine trees in Rome would have “seen” in their long lives. He said, “The centuries-old trees which so characteristically dominate the Roman landscape become witnesses to the principal events in Roman life.” Respighi left a prose description of each movement in the score. His notes are as follows: The Pine Trees of the Villa Borghese. Children are at play in the pine groves of Villa Borghese; they dance round in circles, they play at soldiers, marching and fighting, they are wrought up by their own cries like swallows at evening, they come and go in swarms. Suddenly the scene changes to Pine Trees near a catacomb. We see the shades of the pine trees fringing the entrance to a

catacomb. From the depth rises the sound of mournful psalm-singing, floating through the air like a solemn hymn, gradually and mysteriously dispersing. The Pine Trees of the Janiculum. A quiver runs through the air: the pine trees of the Janiculum stand distinctly outlined in the clear light of a full moon. A nightingale is singing. The Pine Trees of the Appian Way. Misty dawn on the Appian Way; solitary pine trees guarding the magic landscape; the muffled, ceaseless rhythm of unending footsteps. The poet has a fantastic vision of bygone glories. Trumpets sound and, in the brilliance of the newly risen sun, a consular army bursts forth toward the Sacred Way, mounting in triumph to the Capitol. According to Elsa Respighi, the composer’s wife, “The Pines of Rome was one of the compositions in which her husband was most emotionally involved. His success in immersing us in the beauty of his beloved city is compelling testimony to that involvement.” Aside from its rich colors and superb orchestration, Pines of Rome was groundbreaking in a very significant if understated respect. It was one of the first pieces to use electronic sounds in its orchestration. Respighi included in the score the instruction to play a recording of a nightingale at the end of the third movement. To this day, publishers supply the recording that Respighi specified with the score of the work.
