7 DULUTH SUPERIOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
THE REGION’S BEST SURGEONS + INDUSTRY BEST TECHNOLOGY

Welcome to the Symphony!

This year the DSSO kicks off a three-year artistic initiative to celebrate music that is heard all too seldom. Music by composers of color, female composers, and contemporary American voices. These are composers that might be less familiar, but they certainly have important things to say!

During the 2022/23 season we will direct our focus to music by Black composers. Five of our seven Masterworks concerts include compositions by Black composers, featuring an amazing variety of music. From the contemporary voices of Adolphus Hailstork and Jessie Montgomery, to the “classics” Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, Florence Price and William Grant Still, you’ll find these compositions to be full of life, energy and beauty.

And there is even more to discover! Ever heard of Hans Rott? A student of Anton Bruckner, Gustav Mahler himself praised him as a genius and he would certainly have come to prominence, had he not passed so tragically early. How about Michael Tippett? He was one of Britain’s most prominent composers during the first half of the 20th century. His oratorio A Child of Our Time was written in support of oppressed people everywhere and makes stunning use of spirituals like Deep River and Nobody Knows The Trouble I See.

But, of course, if you are looking for something beloved and familiar, we also have that in store for you. Beethoven, Elgar, Gershwin, Sibelius, Mozart, Brahms… have your pick! And to top it off: we celebrate Sergey Rachmaninoff’s 150th birthday with two of his works: his lesser known tone poem The Rock and one of the cornerstones of the piano repertoire, his Piano Concerto No.3.

Talking about familiar: You don’t want to miss our pops performances this season. Our Holiday Spectacular is quickly becoming an annual tradition here in the Northland. And in February come enjoy the music of the most prolific film composer of our time: John Williams. You’ll hear all the classics, from Superman to Star Wars, but also rarities like his whirlwind Cowboys Overture and the jazzy Escapades based on music from Catch Me If You Can.

MEYER DIRK

So come on out and join your DSSO again this season! If you have friends who might be symphony-curious, tell them about our 9 for 90 deal: first time subscribers can purchase all nine DSSO concerts for only $90.

But most importantly, come out with family, friends, and fellow music-lovers, and have the shared experience of art and beauty once more!

Second, the DSSO made the conscious effort to lower prices for its 2022-23 Season. We also reshaped our ticket zones, adding 359 of our $20 tickets in the hall. And if that was not enough, we also offered the “9 for $90” subscription package for new subscribers. I am very happy to say that the community response has been nothing short of amazing. To date, the DSSO has added 337 new subscribers. If you are one of our new subscribers, thank you so much for joining us this season. We want to make sure you enjoy your concert experience, so please be in touch with me if you have any questions or anything that we can do for you.

Finally, I know that many people have read about the DSSO’s potential transition to the St. Louis County Depot. We are currently working on negotiations that will bring our offices back to the Depot building after nearly 15 years. In doing so, we will be more available to the public and also able to offer interactive displays of our nearly 100-year-old history. There are still more discussions to have, but we are excited to turn this page starting next year.

First, I am happy to celebrate three years with the orchestra. It feels like longer, due to the twists and turns that COVID has brought to our organization and the world. We have been able to manage through it all, with virtual performances and restricted numbers on stage and in the hall, to bring us back together. We have received so much positive feedback as we have expanded our summer programs to included regular performances at the Great Lakes Aquarium and at Fourth Fest, and more growth is in store in the coming seasons as we look to celebrate the DSSO’s Centennial in eight years.

SERGEI RACHMANINOFF

The Rock, Op. 7 SERGEI RACHMANINOFF

BORN: : April 1, 1873, in Novgorod, Russia

DIED: March 28, 1943, in Beverly Hills, California

WORK COMPOSED: 1893; dedicated to Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

WORLD PREMIERE: April 1894, in Moscow; Vassily Safonov conducting

PERFORMANCE HISTORY: There have been no previous DSSO performances of this Rachmaninoff tone poem.

INSTRUMENTATION: : Two flutes and piccolo, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangle, tambourine, cymbal, bass drum, tam-tam), harp and strings.

DURATION: 18 minutes

In 1893 Rachmaninoff was a composition student of Anton Arensky (1861-1906) at the Moscow Conservatory. As all music students know, exam time means performing for the other faculty, in this instance Mikhail Ippolitov-Ivanov (1859-1935) and Sergei Taneyev (1856-1915).

Instead of holding the exams at the conservatory, Taneyev invited the students and other faculty to his home where the students could also perform for his house guest, Tchaikovsky. One student, Lev (Leon) Conus (1871-1944), performed his four-hand piano

arrangement of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, which did not seem to particularly please the composer. However, the great composer enjoyed the performance of Rachmaninoff’s just completed fantasia, The Rock

At the close of the evening [Rachmaninoff] acquainted us with the newly completed symphonic poem, The Crag [The Rock]. [...] The poem pleased all very much, especially Pyotr Ilyich [Tchaikovsky], who was enthusiastic over its colorfulness. The performance of The Crag and our discussion of it must have diverted Pyotr Ilyich, for his former good-hearted mood came back to him.

Ippolitov-Ivanov later recalled Tchaikovsky’s reaction: Tchaikovsky asked Rachmaninoff for permission to include The Rock in his forthcoming European concert tour, but sadly it never happened because Tchaikovsky died later that year.

As an epigraph for his fantasia The Rock, Rachmaninoff chose a couplet from a poem by Mikhail Lermontov (1814-1841):

The golden cloud slept through the night Upon the breast of the giant rock

Rachmaninoff later shared that there was also another inspiration for the work which came from a short story by Anton Chekhov (1860-1904), On the Road (December 25, 1886). The story tells of a chance encounter at a roadside inn during a stormy Christmas eve between a young woman and a man who is quickly approaching middle age. Grigory Petrovitch Liharev (the man) tells the story of his unhappy life to Marya Mihailovna Ilovaisky (the woman), who is deeply moved by it. The following day she departs on her journey and he, left alone with his life’s regrets, stands and is covered by the snow that falls around him - the rock of Lermontov’s poem.

There are three main themes to listen for in The Rock: the man, the woman, and the intense, frustrating struggles of the man’s life. The ominous opening emerges from the depths of the orchestra and sets off a journey of beautiful melodies and brilliant orchestral colors that are only a glimpse of what is to come in Rachmaninoff’s later works. As the conversation continues, the struggle for mutual understanding between them builds to an incredible climax dominated by the trombones, a moment not far removed from the earth-shattering climax in the first movement of Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony. The final measures fade with distant beats from the timpani.

SAMUEL COLERIDGE-TAYLOR

Othello Suite, Op. 79 SAMUEL COLERIDGE-TAYLOR

BORN: August 15, 1875, in Holborn, London, England

DIED: September 1, 1912, in Croydon, London

WORK COMPOSED: 1909

WORLD PREMIERE: Not documented

PERFORMANCE HISTORY: The only music by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor previously played by the Orchestra was Keep Me from Sinking Down with Erin Aldridge, violin soloist, on February 26, 2022.

INSTRUMENTATION: Two flutes and piccolo, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, timpani, percussion (cymbals, bass drum, triangle) and strings.

DURATION: 13 minutes.

Coleridge-Taylor was born to an English woman, Alice Hare Martin (1856-1953) and a Krio man from Sierra Leone, Daniel Peter Hughes Taylor (abt. 1848-1904), who was studying medicine in London at the time. They were not married and Taylor returned to Africa without learning that Alice was pregnant (her parents were also not married at her birth). She named her son Samuel Coleridge Taylor after the poet Samuel Taylor Coleridge. After she had Samuel, Alice lived with her father Benjamin Holmans and his family in Croydon, Surrey. He was married to a woman not her mother and they had four daughters and at least one son. Both Alice and her father called her son Coleridge and in 1887 Alice married a railway worker, George Evans.

Taylor grew up in a musical family and he learned the violin from Holmans. After realizing his grandson’s extraordinary ability, he paid for him to have violin lessons. The family arranged for the fifteen-yearold Samuel to study at the Royal College of Music. He changed his focus from violin to composition and studied under Sir Charles Villiers Stanford (18521924), whose other students included Gustav Holst, Ralph Vaughan Williams, Frank Bridge and Arthur Bliss. After completing his degree, Taylor became a professional musician; he conducted the orchestra at the Croydon Conservatory and was appointed a professor at the Crystal Palace School of Music.

The Othello Suite was commissioned as incidental music for the 1912 Herbert Beerbohm Tree production of Shakespeare’s Othello at His Majesty’s Theatre in London. Incidental music is used in plays and films as background to create a mood or enhance the action. Each of the five movements contain strong and contrasting themes, which must have been impressive as they accompanied Shakespeare’s Othello. One can only imagine what actions may have been taking place on-stage during each of these five movements: the lively, exuberant Dance; the playful, innocent Children’s Intermezzo; the somber, regal Funeral March; The Willow Song, a beautiful melancholic melody that epitomizes the tragedy of Othello; and the Military March which, in its joyousness, seems to be signaling a great victory.

Coleridge-Taylor lived too short a life, dying at the age of 37. His music definitely compares well with that of his contemporaries and deserves to be performed more often.

JEAN SIBELIUS

Symphony No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 82 JEAN SIBELIUS

BORN: December 8, 1865, in Hämeenlinna, in the Russian Grand Duchy of Finland

DIED: September 20, 1957, in his home, Ainola, at Lake Tuusula, Järvenpää, Finland

WORK COMPOSED: 1914–15; revised 1916 and 1919

WORLD PREMIERE: :Sibelius completed the first version of his Fifth Symphony just in time to conduct it for his 50th birthday, a Finnish national holiday, on December 8, 1915, with the Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra. Sibelius also conducted the final version with the same orchestra on November 24, 1919.

PERFORMANCE HISTORY: This Sibelius symphony was also played by the DSSO in 1945 (Tauno Hannikainen conducting), 1980 and 1993 (both with Taavo Virkhaus), and on April 12, 2003, followed by a run-out concert in Hibbing, MN, the next day (with Markand Thakar).

INSTRUMENTATION: : Two flutes, two oboes, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, timpani and strings

DURATION : 30 minutes.

The Finnish government declared December 8, 1915 a national holiday in honor of the 50th birthday of Jean Sibelius. To celebrate the occasion, the government commissioned a symphony from the honoree. After years of being a popular composer, Sibelius began receiving poor reviews following the premiere of his Fourth Symphony. An entry in his notebook from September 1914 gives an indication of his depression while mentioning his new symphony: “In a deep valley again. But I already begin to see dimly the mountain that I shall certainly ascend...God opens his door for a moment and His orchestra plays the Fifth Symphony.” Musicologist James Hepokoski wrote that Sibelius “was beginning to sense his own eclipse as a contending modernist;” he realized that his strength was in developing the musical language he was most comfortable with. Sibelius specialist and Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu discussed Symphony No. 5 in 2018 saying that Sibelius made a definite choice “to stay within the frames of harmonic language of late-19th-century romanticism; instead he would innovate in the realms of macrostructure and instrumental coloring.” As an example the structure of this Symphony No. 5 is unusual: it has three movements, all in a major key (I. E-flat major, II. G major, III. E-flat major), making it seem as though the entire work is one movement. When it comes to tempo, it is symmetrical: the first movement starts slow and ends with a fast scherzo; the second movement maintains a medium tempo as a calm intermezzo; and the third movement begins fast and ends slowly.

Sibelius wrote in 1914, “I should like to compare the symphony to a river. It is born from various rivulets that seek each other, and in this way the river proceeds wide and powerful toward the sea.” The Fifth Symphony evolves out of the calm opening horn motif and flows like a river as it turns into a wild ride over the rapids. Sibelius creates such an organic quality in his transitions from one section to the next that it makes them seamless and unnoticeable.

As the finale opens, the tremolo in the strings captures the rustle of wings as it accompanies an expansive melody. He wrote in his diary on April 21, 1915, “Today at ten to eleven I saw sixteen swans. One of my greatest experiences! Lord God, what beauty! They circled over me for a long time. Disappeared into the solar haze like a gleaming silver ribbon.” Juxtaposed with this breathless rustling is a majestic ‘swan theme’ introduced by the horns.

24 DULUTH SUPERIOR SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA MASTERWORKS 4

The fragmentation of the winds and random punctuations of the timpani depicts an enormous struggle that may very well be associated with the anxiety of the world at war and Finland’s war for independence from Russia. The music builds and intensifies as it reaches its climax as the swan theme triumphantly returns. With the final six decisive chords Sibelius draws his Fifth Symphony to a victorious close.

Sibelius conducted the first version of his Fifth Symphony in Helsinki on his 50th birthday. Over the next four years he would revise it, commenting that he wanted to give it a “more human form. More down-to-earth, more vivid.” Work on the revision came to an unexpected pause in 1918 when Russian soldiers invaded his town and Sibelius and his family were forced to flee to Helsinki, where they remained until later that year. The final version, which he described as “practically composed anew,” was completed in 1919 and is more straightforward, classical and monumental compared with the more modernist style of the first version. Although Sibelius did not directly connect the Fifth Symphony with World War I and/or Finland’s war for independence, it is a symbol of the hope and strength that arose from that turbulent time. However, he specified in the program for the London premiere in 1921: “The composer desires the work to be regarded as absolute music, having no direct poetic basis.”

JOHN WILLIAMS

Mr. Williams has composed numerous works for the concert stage, among them two symphonies, and concertos for flute, violin, clarinet, viola, oboe and tuba. His cello concerto was commissioned by the Boston Symphony Orchestra and premiered by Yo-Yo Ma at Tanglewood in 1994.

Born in 1932 and raised in New York, John Willaims enocuntered a career that spans five decades and 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. Williams received a variety of prestigious awards and 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 40year 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, four 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 and War Horse.

Mr. Williams has composed the scores for all seven Star Wars films, the first three Harry Potter films, Superman: The Movie, among many others.

INVEST IN THE MUSIC YOU LOVE

Just as it takes an ensemble to perform the great works of Beethoven, so it takes a collection of individuals to support the work of the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra. When you give to the DSSO, you are supporting an organization that is a cultural cornerstone of the Twin Ports region, bringing together the best of our local musicians to entertain, educate and enrich the lives of more than 20,000 individuals each year.

Your ticket purchase tonight was important - but it only covers a quarter of our annual operating expenses. Individual donors play an important part in helping the Symphony bridge that gap. Each season, gifts from individuals provide more than 60% of our contributed income. That means donations of any size make a big difference and support our efforts to share great music with everyone in the community.

WAYS TO MAKE A GIFT:

In Person - Come say hello to us at the tables in the lobby. We want to hear your stories about concerts you have enjoyed over the years.

Call the Office - We are happy to process your donation over the phone and love it when you call!

Donate Online - Give securely by visiting www.DSSO.com/give

Debit Transfer - Join other DSSO patrons and simply authorize your banker to initiate a reoccurring debit transfer from your account directly to the DSSO.

Mail Us a Check - We know it can be old-fashioned, but our office loves getting mail. 130 W. Superior St Suite LL2 - 120 Duluth, MN 55802

IRA Donation - Are you 70½ or older? You can support the music you love with a Qualified Charitable Distribution from your IRA. Please consult your tax or financial advisor for more information.

Charitable Bequest - Write your own story with planned gifts to the people & organizations you value by writing them to your Will and beneficiary designations.

Stock Donations- You can transfer appreciated stock as a gift that is fully tax-deductible.

PERPETUAL SUPPORT VIA THE LEGACY SOCIETY:

The Legacy Society recognizes and honors the visionary individuals, couples, and families who have included the DSSO in their estate plans, ensuring that the music you care about continues into the future. To join the Legacy Society, you can make a bequest to the DSSO as part of your Will, name the organization as a beneficiary in a policy or retirement fund or provide a direct cash donation into our endowment.

To begin, contact your attorney and ask for the DSSO to be included in your Will, Trust or policy. Then contact the DSSO office and we can provide you with a membership form so we can begin recognizing your generosity and including your gift in our future planning.

In recognition of their support, Legacy Society members are listed in all concert Program Books and are invited to an exclusive annual benefit event each year.

BUSINESS SUPPORT:

The Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra (DSSO) is proud to be a part of the Twin Ports business community. The Symphony is an employer, a downtown tenant, a consumer, an advertiser, and a member of the Chamber of Commerce. We understand that each company has different needs and motivations, from marketing and brand identification to client and employee entertainment and recognition, and more. We welcome the opportunity to discuss your corporate objectives and identify customized ways we can work together for mutual benefits.

THE DSSO DONOR LOUNGE

The DSSO Donor Lounge is a space for where our most invested patrons can gather before a concert and during intermission. Access to the Donor Lounge starts with gifts to the annual fund of $1,000 and includes access to a private bartender on the second floor of the Symphony Hall Lobby Space.
