form a diptych called Two Contemplations. The contemplation in The Unanswered Question involves nothing less than an existential drama of the cosmos. Ives imagined a scenario addressing what he termed “the perennial question of existence.” The collage technique on which the composition is based demonstrates a revolutionary brand of musical thinking. Here the programmatic ideas of Romanticism are fused with the novel concept of layering separate “tracks” of musical events on top of each other, so that the spatial arrangement of sound itself comes into play.

With its intriguing twist on program music and its philosophical bent, this best known of Ives’s compositions exemplifies his status as an American maverick.

harles Ives is regarded as the godfather and guiding spirit of the “maverick” or experimental tradition in American music.

At one point he planned to pair The Unanswered Question with another short work, Central Park in the Dark, to 20

Ives associates the three separate layers that make up the piece with three different characters. First is a placid backdrop of diatonic chords in the strings, whose wide spacing and enduring serenity hints at an angelic hymn tinged with ineffable melancholy. Ives likens this sonority to “the silence of the Druids—who know, see, and hear nothing.” Their music continues at a nearly inaudible steady-state dynamic throughout, unperturbed by the other two layers. The five-note “question,” the second layer, is usually posed by a trumpet, but the score allows for the substitution of English horn, oboe or clarinet. The third layer involves “the hunt for ‘the invisible answer’ undertaken by flutes and other human beings” (or woodwind quartet in the flexible scoring). The piece seems to suggest a series of answers to the enigma of existence, but — like the rejected orchestral responses before Beethoven introduces the “joy” theme in the finale to the Ninth Symphony — none is satisfactory. Instead, entropy gradually increases with each attempted answer until the winds are lost in chaotic chatter. In the composer’s description, these “ ‘fighting answers’ … seem to realize a futility, and begin to mock ‘The Question’ — the strife is over for the moment.” What lies beyond, after the final questioning, is infinite expanse. The Unanswered Question is scored for 4 flutes (or 2 flutes, oboe and clarinet), strings and trumpet (which can optionally be replaced by oboe, English horn or clarinet).

Schoenberg composed both the text and music for A Survivor from Warsaw in the summer of 1947. A unique response to the Holocaust, this compact music drama pits brutal inhumanity against the power of memory and faith. First performance: November 4, 1948, with Kurt Frederick conducting the Albuquerque Symphony at the University of New Mexico. First Nashville Symphony performance: October 17 & 18, 1986, with Music Director Kenneth Schermerhorn Estimated length: 8 minutes
orn just a month before Ives, Arnold Schoenberg became a reluctant revolutionary, a leader in the vanguard of the modernist upheavals in the art of the early 20th century. It’s ironic that Schoenberg would later become equated with an intellectually detached attitude toward composition. In fact he possessed a powerful instinct for emotionally gripping musical drama and firmly believed in music’s capacity to convey spiritual insights. A sense of existential struggle permeates A Survivor from Warsaw, a harrowing lateperiod work. As both a Jew and an exponent of challenging musical ideas the Nazis deemed “degenerate,” Schoenberg was in danger the instant Hitler came into power. He resettled in the United States, where he remained for the rest of his life. Though he had converted to Lutheranism while a young man, the rise of the Nazis reinforced his sense of solidarity with the Jewish community, and Schoenberg publicly returned to his Jewish faith shortly before leaving Europe. Schoenberg discovered details of the horrific reality of the Holocaust from his new home in
California shortly after the war. His response was to write both music and text (in English, along with the barking German the sergeant shouts out using Prussian dialect, and a traditional Hebrew prayer) for A Survivor from Warsaw. An intensely wrought, compact music drama, the piece belies its brief duration through an unsparing and vivid immediacy that biographer Allen Shawn aptly compares to “cinema verité” that involves the audience “as a participant, not as an observer.”
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Every detail of Schoenberg’s score is made to count, from the trumpet’s nightmarish reveille to the savagely whipped-up tempo of the roll call. His use of voices further maximizes the dramatic contrasts of the piece. On one level is the survivor’s traumatic narration, which is rendered in the composer’s famous Sprechstimme (a manner of vocal declamation that lies between speaking and singing), and which is further intensified by the orchestra’s hyper-expressive commentary. The sadistic sergeant’s commands all-too-vividly evoke the scenario. But before their murder, the victims give voice, in Hebrew,
CL A SS I C A L
to “the forgotten creed,” the central Jewish expression of faith that Schoenberg sets as a 12tone chorale. It resonates in the face of inhuman brutality.
A Survivor from Warsaw is scored for 2 flutes (2nd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, harp and strings, along with a narrator and men’s chorus.

Born on September 25, 1906, in Saint Petersburg, Russia; died on August 9, 1975, in Moscow Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat major, Op. 107 Shostakovich composed the first of his two cello concertos in 1959. Both works were inspired by the artistry of cellist Mstislav Rostropovich. Despite being the product of the post-Stalinist “thaw,” the nervous tensions of this music encode aspects of the composer’s precarious situation as a creative figure in a totalitarian society. First performance: October 4, 1959, with Mstislav Rostropovich as soloist and Yevgeny Mravinsky conducting the Leningrad Philharmonic in Leningrad First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the Nashville Symphony’s first performances. Estimated length: 30 minutes
hat words could not say, his music expressed.” Legendary cellist Mstislav Rostropovich’s (1927-2007) words pithily summarize the immense sense of responsibility that Shostakovich shouldered as an artist in a totalitarian regime. Rostropovich, twenty years younger than the composer, met him while a teenage student at the Moscow Conservatory and later called this meeting “a determining factor in my life.” He took a class in orchestration from Shostakovich, and the two musicians became lifelong friends. In his later career as a conductor, Rostropovich also championed his mentor’s orchestral works during a period when Shostakovich was still regarded with suspicion — if not hostility — in the West due to his complicated relationship with the Soviet regime. Working as an artist in the Soviet Union under Stalin meant enduring a highly precarious
FEB R UA RY 2 0 1 3
existence. For Shostakovich the stakes became, quite literally, a matter of survival. In 1936 his wildly successful opera Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk sparked an attack from the official Communist newspaper Pravda, which condemned Shostakovich for writing “decadently” modernist music and pointed to him as a negative example, much like the “degenerate artists” vilified by the Nazis during the same period. With the triumphant premiere in 1937 of the Fifth Symphony (his next major work following the Pravda scandal), Shostakovich was restored to official grace — for a time. Yet he would always remain on edge throughout the rest of his career as he tried to balance creative imperatives against the shifting whims of Soviet cultural policy. Indeed, before the official denunciation, Shostakovich had already crafted much of the highly Mahlerian
been longing for a concerto from Shostakovich for years, and he was so keen to learn the score that he memorized his part within four days. At the same time, Shostakovich coded subversive elements into its texture so carefully that even Rostropovich didn’t recognize all of them at first.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R
S E R I ES
The First Cello Concerto is regarded as one of the finest achievements in this repertory produced in the 20th century. It has an innovative form, transferring the cadenza usually expected in the opening movement to a focal point bridging the way to the finale. Shostakovich actually marks the cadenza as a movement of its own, so that the entire work can be described as having four movements (the last three joined together without pause). The sonority provided by the orchestral ensemble is also distinctive. Shostakovich omits the usual brass but gives a single horn a prominent role as a kind of alternate soloist. The timpanist becomes a central player as well in key moments. The otherworldly contributions of the celesta at the end of the slow movement enhance the cello’s ethereal harmonics to produce an almost surreal halo. Shostakovich gets extraordinary mileage out of the terse four-note motif the cello plays to open the concerto; this in turn is reminiscent of a similar motif the composer used to “spell” his initials in several works. A nervous sense of paranoia emerges from the obsessive nature of this motif. Biographer Laurel Fay points out that its ironic source is the 1948 film Shostakovich scored, The Young Guard, from a passage depicting the “procession to the execution.” The movement’s march-like demeanor takes on even darker contours with the peremptory promptings of the timpani and the murky soundings of the contrabassoon. The sonority becomes warmer in the slow movement, which opens peacefully with the string body, with important contributions by the solo horn. A central climax leads back to the haunting earlier music beginning this movement and then a fading into the unusually extensive cadenza. Here, beginning in a state of profound meditation, the cellist progressively speeds up
CL A SS I C A L
Fourth Symphony — one of his most boldly adventurous works — but decided it was too risky to unveil in light of his current disfavor. (He ultimately withheld the Fourth until after Stalin’s death, and the premiere was delayed by a quarter century.) Another denunciation would follow in 1948. For a time Shostakovich was forced to get by writing scores for mediocre films and works of “patriotic,” Socialist Realist-approved optimism. The public nature of the symphonic genre only intensified the potential danger. The concerto could be interpreted as a close cousin, and one fraught with perils of its own given the potentially allegorical set-up of the soloist as an individual against the “collective” of the orchestra. With the concerto Shostakovich could develop a resonantly ambiguous metaphor for the fate of the individual. The Romantic paradigm had played with the tension between heroic assertion of the soloist/self and harmonic convergence with the orchestra, but in the political context Shostakovich faced, this also suggested a model rife with ironic subtexts. Even today Shostakovich’s music incites debate about hidden meanings and nested enigmas waiting to be decoded: Was he a cynical, embittered court jester who threaded a defiant but secretly dissident commentary into his scores? Shostakovich had ventured only once into the concerto format before the Second World War, writing for himself as pianist (the First Piano Concerto, from 1933). His relationship with remarkable performers led Shostakovich to return to the medium for two pairs of concertos for string instruments: two violin concertos written for David Oistrakh and two with the cello as protagonist, the latter crafted to take advantage of Rostropovich’s unique combination of lyricism and dramatic intensity. Like the Fourth Symphony, the First Violin Concerto also fell victim to the composer’s public denunciation (in this case, the second he underwent, in 1948); it was consequently withheld until after Stalin’s death. By the time of the First Cello Concerto, the brief post-Stalinist thaw had relaxed the chokehold somewhat, and the work was an immediate success when Rostropovich gave the premiere. The cellist had
CL A SS I C A L
in sections punctuated by plucked chords. The acceleration paves the way to the rondo finale, underscored by the timpani’s subterranean rumble. In this concluding movement, Shostakovich cleverly disguises fragments from a Georgian folk song known to be Stalin’s favorite tune. The nervousness of the first movement has now given way to frenzy, and the opening four-
note motif returns like the inescapable patterns of fate, to steer the concerto to its conclusion. In addition to solo cello, the Concerto is scored for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, horn, timpani, celesta and strings.

J OH N A DA MS Born on February 15, 1947, in Worcester, Massachusetts; currently resides in Berkeley, California Harmonielehre Adams composed Harmonielehre in 1984-85 during his residency with the San Francisco Symphony. This large-scale symphonic canvas weds Minimalist techniques with the composer’s musings on the history of tonality and helped transform Adams into a composer of international stature.

ohn Adams, who celebrates his 66th birthday next week, may look the part of an éminence grise, but he still retains a boundlessly youthful energy. He has carried forward the Yankee maverick tradition of Charles Ives. Growing up, like Ives, in rural New England, he has said that he absorbed “classical and popular music with little prejudice toward one at the expense of the other.” Following a small-town upbringing and education at Harvard, Adams decided in the early 1970s to forsake the East Coast music establishment and head West to San Francisco. He immediately took to the Bay Area’s Shangri-La of experimentalism, where he found the space to discover his voice as a composer. As composerin-residence at San Francisco Symphony from 1982 to 1985, Adams was in a position to curate
FEB R UA RY 2 0 1 3
an influential series of “new and unusual music” concerts while also making breakthroughs of his own. As often happens with a major creative advance, Harmonielehre was preceded by a sense of crisis and doubt that lingered for a year and a half, grounding the composer in a depressing sense of futility just as a significant deadline loomed. His project was to write a major orchestral work as the culmination of his San Francisco residency. “Like a baseball player falling deeper and deeper into a self-perpetuating slump,” writes Adams in his memoir, Hallelujah Junction, “I began to spend the larger part of my energies analyzing why I could not produce.” He recalls that Arnold Schoenberg, who had become an ambivalent artistic father figure, appeared in one of several revealing dreams that ultimately
Harmonielehre is symphonic both in scope and in its far-ranging, colorful use of a large orchestra. The piece unfolds in a broad three-part design. Characteristically, Adams evolves forms uniquely suited to his musical materials, using an arch form framed by powerful waves of energy for the first (and longest) part. Stark, violent chords of E minor set it in motion. These were prompted by yet another dream, recalls Adams (heavily influenced by Jungian psychology at the time), in which he “watched a gigantic supertanker take off from the surface of San Francisco Bay and thrust itself into the sky like a Saturn rocket.” Along with its affirmation of tonality, Harmonielehre, according to Adams, “marries the developmental techniques of Minimalism with the harmonic and expressive world of fin de siècle late Romanticism,” which dominates the first
movement’s middle part. The “shades of Mahler, Sibelius, and Debussy” — and even of young Schoenberg’s late-Romantic works — hover in this soundscape. Carl Jung also figures in the slower second part, titled “The Anfortas Wound” after the wounded medieval Grail knight. He represents a Jungian archetype who “symbolize[s] a condition of sickness of the soul that curses it with a feeling of impotence and depression.” Minorkey harmonies and lamenting gestures provide the backdrop for a soaring solo trumpet, one of Adams’s signature devices and a sonic emblem of the battlefield’s metaphorical reach inward. A reference to Mahler’s unfinished Tenth Symphony — and by extension to a turning point in the golden age of Western tonality — is embedded in the second climax that shatters this music. In the final part, titled “Meister Eckhardt & Quackie,” Adams draws on feelings of renewal linked to a dream he had soon after his daughter Emily (nicknamed “Quackie”) was born, in which “she rides perched on the shoulder of the Medieval mystic Meister Eckhardt as they hover among the heavenly bodies like figures painted on the high ceilings of old cathedrals.” References to a gentle lullaby yield to waves of ecstatic momentum in E-flat major, an oceanic cry of joy for the creativity that has been liberated. Harmonielehre is scored for 4 flutes (2nd, 3rd and 4th doubling piccolos), 3 oboes (3rd doubling English horn), 3 clarinets (3rd doubling bass clarinet 2), bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, 2 tubas, timpani, 4 percussionists, 2 harps, piano, celesta and strings. —Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator.

pointed the way toward Harmonielehre. “Despite my respect for and even intimidation by the persona of Schoenberg,” writes Adams, “I felt it only honest to acknowledge that I profoundly disliked the sound of twelve-tone music.” For Adams, the word Harmonielehre, suggested by Schoenberg’s precedent, came to mean “a psychic quest for harmony.” This is what defines the work’s essential trajectory, and it likewise applies to Adams’s personal creative search during these years, which led him to this “statement of belief in the power of tonality at a time when I was uncertain about its future.” The visionary director Peter Sellars, who has collaborated with the composer on all of his stage works (including, most recently, The Gospel According to the Other Mary), points out that Adams’s personal harmonic language is thrilling because through its “sweeps of tension,” release, and “adrenaline-inspired visionary states” it embodies a “genuinely dramatic” sensibility: “This is absolutely what you hope for in the theater.” In fact it was not long before he composed Harmonielehre that Adams had first met Sellars, who planted the idea for Nixon in China. This debut opera would become the next major work to follow Harmonielehre, and it further develops some of the language used in the earlier work.

SMOKEY ROBINSON Once pronounced by Bob Dylan as America’s “greatest living poet,” acclaimed singersongwriter Smokey Robinson has received numerous awards, including the GRAMMY® Living Legend Award, NARAS Lifetime Achievement Award, Kennedy Center Honors and the National Medal of Arts Award from the president of the United States. He has also been inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame and the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. Born and raised in Detroit, Robinson founded The Miracles while still in high school. The group was Berry Gordy’s first vocal group, and it was at Robinson’s suggestion that Gordy started the Motown Records dynasty. Their single of Robinson’s “Shop Around” became Motown’s first No. 1 hit on the R&B singles chart. In the years following, Robinson continued to pen hits for the group, including “You’ve Really Got a Hold on Me,” “Ooo Baby Baby,” “The Tracks of My Tears,” “Going to a Go-Go,” “Tears of a Clown” (co-written with Stevie Wonder) and “I Second That Emotion.” The Miracles dominated the R&B scene throughout the 1960s and early 70s, and Robinson became vice president of Motown Records, serving as in-house producer, talent scout and songwriter. In addition to writing hits for the Miracles, he wrote and produced hits for other Motown greats, including The Temptations, Mary Wells, Marvin Gaye and others. Robinson later turned to a solo career, continuing his tradition of hit-making with “Quiet Storm,” “Cruisin’ ” and “Being with You,” among others. He remained vice president of Motown Records until the sale of the company, shaping the label’s success with friend and mentor Berry Gordy. Following his tenure at Motown, he continued his impressive touring career and released several successful solo albums.

This world-famous production features a lively exchange of letters between young Christoph and his Uncle. Their subject is the “madman” who has moved into the upstairs apartment of Christoph’s Vienna home. The funereal second movement of Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony sets the scene as we travel back in time from March 26, 1827, the day of Beethoven’s death, into the more intimate setting of young Christoph’s house in Vienna a few years before. Christoph’s father has just died, and Beethoven has taken the room upstairs. As the correspondence with his uncle unfolds, Christoph recounts the horrors of the composer standing naked at the window, water dripping down into their apartment and Beethoven playing late into the night. Finally, after attending the famous first performance of the Ninth Symphony, Christoph comes to understand the genius of Beethoven, the torment of his deafness and the beauty of his music.

Copland composed El Salón México between 1932 and 1936. Inspired by his travels south of the border, Copland began to find his signature sound in this piece, which first won him a wider audience.

t’s often pointed out that the composer who created one of the most recognizable strands of the “American sound” in orchestral music was the son of Russian-Jewish immigrants. Moreover, Aaron Copland arrived at his style after assimilating influences from his travels outside the United States. He enjoyed a lifelong friendship with Mexican
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Copland avails himself of several folk tunes and weaves them into a single, collage-like movement, incorporating some of the modernist techniques he had explored in earlier works. Biographer Howard Pollack suggests that this almost cinematic treatment may have been inspired by “the kinds of collage and patchwork practiced by folk artisans.” Repeated hearings yield different perspectives on the piece, including just how to divide up its succession of slow and fast sections. Copland also employs his unusually large percussion battery (listen for the classic Latin sound of the ratchet-like guiro) to amplify the orchestral colors. Overall, notes Pollack, his method here provided a

composer and conductor Carlos Chávez, a contemporary whose own artistic and political evolution paralleled Copland’s. The two shared an interest in combining folk music with modernist developments in composition. It was Chávez who encouraged Copland to undertake his first trip to Mexico in 1932, during the height of the Great Depression. “In some inexplicable way, while milling about in those crowded halls,” recalled Copland, “one felt a really live contact with the Mexican ‘people’ — the electric sense one gets sometimes in far-off places, of suddenly knowing the essence of a people — their humanity, their separate shyness, their dignity and unique charm. I remember quite well that it was at just such a moment that I conceived the idea of composing a piece about Mexico….” The result, El Salón México, which takes its name from a famous dance hall in the capital city, is a vibrant miniature tone poem. Both the raucous dance hall and the bands that kept couples moving through the sticky night suggested to Copland a kind of microcosm for the power of music to sustain people in desperate times. As the Great Depression lingered, it intensified Copland’s desire to communicate with a broader audience. El Salón México, which the composer dedicated to his lover at the time, photographer Victor Kraft, scored an instant success when Chávez premiered it, and it was his first orchestral work to be recorded commercially.

Born on January 23, 1977, in Philadelphia; currently resides in Oakland, California Concerto for Violin Mason Bates’s Violin Concerto was commissioned by Anne Akiko Meyers with the Pittsburgh Symphony. Known for his unique blend of orchestral sounds and DJ-tinged “electronica,” Bates goes unplugged in this entirely acoustic new work inspired by fossils of the ancient archaeopteryx, a link between dinosaurs and birds. First performance: December 7, 2012, with Anne Akiko-Meyers as soloist and Leonard Slatkin conducting the Pittsburgh Symphony. First Nashville Symphony performance: The Nashville Symphony introduces Mason Bates’s Violin Concerto to its repertory with these concerts. Estimated length: 25 minutes
iven the nature of its format, the concerto has a reputation for being a showcase for the unique qualities of the solo instrument being spotlighted. The first time a new concerto is rolled out, it often even serves as a calling card for the gifts of the particular musician for whom it was conceived. Yet there is also a significant tradition of concertos that represent a creative leap forward for their composers. Balancing the contradictions of the individual and the group into a cohesive musical structure requires a special ingenuity of its own. Mozart (taking on the double function of composer and performer) pioneered the piano concerto and, in the process, refined the style on which he drew for his mature operatic masterpieces. Composers like Bartók gave a twentieth-century spin to the medium by

redefining the role of the collective and writing concertos for orchestra. For his new Violin Concerto, Mason Bates has readjusted his usual modus operandi by going unplugged. Bates, 36, is a 21st-century maverick who has spearheaded the classical composer’s new sense of self in this era of the Internet. In a highlight of the inaugural concert in 2009 by the YouTube Symphony Orchestra under Michael Tilson Thomas — the international ensemble built from musicians who auditioned online — Bates appeared with the orchestra, commanding a digital palette of beats and samples in a preview of his orchestral suite The B-Sides. Another work for the YouTube Symphony followed in 2010. Over the past decade Bates’s work has benefited from close collaborations and
By going “unplugged,” Bates is continuing along a path he has simultaneously been following in other scores. For example, Ode, a commission from 2001 by the Phoenix Symphony, was envisioned as an acoustic “prequel” to Beethoven’s Ninth. For the Violin Concerto, the composer expresses his gratitude to Meyers, “whose fiery and soulful playing inspired every note of this piece,” as well as to “my dear friend Leonard Slatkin.”
Mason Bates has provided the following description of the music: “The search for novel sounds pushed me, surprisingly, into primeval territory, resulting in a concerto filled with ancient animals. First and foremost is the solo violinist, who inhabits two identities: one primal and rhythmic, the other elegant and lyrical. This hybrid musical creature is, in fact, based on a real one. The Archeopteryx [first movement], an animal of the Upper Jurassic famously known as the first dinosaur/ bird hybrid, can be heard in the sometimes frenetic, sometimes sweetly singing solo part. The searching melody that underlies the entire work, not heard in full until we are well into the first movement, has in fact been peering at us from behind the orchestral fauna all along. Unfolding continuously out of the explosive first movement, the middle movement (Lakebed Memories) explores this melody dreamily, conjuring the lakebed in southern Germany where the archaeopteryx fossil was discovered. Eerie, hazy sonorities give way to a kind of underwater epiphany, pushing us airborne into the finale. In this last movement (The Rise of Birds), the soloist stays aloft on a jet stream of notes, inspired equally by Bach inventions and sparkling electronica. The work’s final measures transform the soloist fully from dinosaur into bird, with the melody floating high above an orchestra of fluttering textures.” In addition to solo violin, the Concerto is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboe (2nd doubling English horn), 2 clarinets (2nd doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, 3 percussion players, piano, harp and strings.

residencies with the San Francisco Symphony, the National Symphony, the Chicago Symphony and the Pittsburgh Symphony. For these and other orchestras, he has developed poetically enticing compositions that seem to update the concept of program music in their evocation of particular soundscapes: calving Antarctic glaciers, the transmissions from the 1965 Gemini space walk, “the white noise of the Southern summer” and the “static haze” of international communication in the early days of radio. Bates grew up in Richmond, Virginia, though, like John Adams, he resettled to the Bay Area. While several of his peers discovered classical music relatively late, Bates studied piano, sang in choruses, and learned composition from the legendary Dika Newlin, who was among the last surviving pupils of Schoenberg. Bates was still a teenager when he received his first orchestral commission from a youth orchestra. As a student at Columbia and Juilliard, he discovered the vibrant club culture scene of the Lower East Side and began honing his talents as a DJ artist. During this period Bates simultaneously studied composition with such major figures as John Corigliano and David Del Tredici. In many of his works Bates has explored the aesthetic of what he calls “electronica” — his palette of digital samplings and techno beats, which are controlled from a laptop placed within the orchestra. Like Copland in the work heard in this concert’s opening, Bates often borrows a vibrant source from the dance club and weaves it into larger, more complex orchestral tapestries. One of his stylistic signatures is to blend acoustic and electronic sounds into innovative forms. The prospect of writing a violin concerto, which Anne Akiko Meyers persistently encouraged, led to a change of tack. “Composers paint with sound, and my sonic palette has been growing rapidly in large-scale symphonies fusing orchestral and electronic sounds,” Bates explains. “But the pops, clicks and thuds of techno present challenges in a violin concerto: the subtle textures of this eighteen-inch instrument would be quickly painted over by the powerful colors of such a big palette. So, in order to fully showcase the violin, I stepped back into the acoustic universe — but with my ears still humming with exotic sounds.”

S E R I ES
Tchaikovsky composed the fifth of his six numbered symphonies between May and August 1888. While often interpreted as yet another symphonic expression of the composer’s preoccupation with the power of fate, the Fifth is an achievement of mature mastery that demonstrates Tchaikovsky’s imaginative use of orchestral texture, contrast, and pacing across a large scale. First performance: November 17, 1888, in St. Petersburg, with the composer conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: December 12, 1950, with Music Director William Strickland Estimated length: 45 minutes
he Fifth Symphony could be said to occupy a middle ground between Tchaikovsky’s earlier “tell-it-all” approach and the impulse to be secretive (see sidebar). The composer supplied a minimal description in his working notebook, suggesting that the opening theme represented “complete resignation before Fate.” To be sure, his mature symphonic works, as well as the operas Eugene Onegin and The Queen of Spades, share an obsession with the concept of fate. This nonmusical idea can illuminate our experience of the music, as long as we realize “fate” and other allegorical notions are only the starting point that triggered the composer’s imagination. Consider the opening measures of the Fifth Symphony. This slow, brooding introduction, with its tentative melancholy, could not be more unlike the threatening Judgment Day outburst of horns that launches the Fourth; yet both musical ideas are customarily labeled the “fate theme” of their respective symphonies, and both recur at significant moments as each symphony unfolds, effecting a structural unity and coherence. This
FEB R UA RY 2 0 1 3
structural idea, highly favored by Romantic composers, is the legacy of the experiments of Berlioz in his Symphonie fantastique and of pioneers such as Liszt. Both Tchaikovsky’s Fourth and Fifth might be described as symphonies about fate, yet both set off on entirely different journeys, each building a separate sonic universe.
WHAT TO LISTEN FOR In the Fifth, that universe is one of maximal contrasts and shocking climaxes, as well as vivid orchestral coloring. Tchaikovsky demonstrates superb craftsmanship in his use of the orchestra. Indeed, it’s easy to set aside all programmatic tags and experience this music as a study in instrumental textures, proportions and rhythms. Subdued palettes, moments of balletic grace and shocking outbursts alternate throughout the work. The slow opening has a clear kinship with the main theme of the first movement proper, an idea in dotted rhythm first entrusted to clarinets and bassoons. The introductory music and this
TCH A I KOV SKY A N D P RO GRAM M US I C The epic scale of Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony entailed a giant leap forward in both technique and personal expression. The composer supplied an elaborate program detailing the “content” of each movement, and centered on the idea of Fate, represented by the brass fanfare that blazes at the start. He followed this with the most programmatic of all his symphonies, the unnumbered Manfred Symphony of 1885, which was based on Lord Byron’s poetic drama and its Faustian hero. But Tchaikovsky became ambivalent about the notion that a prose text
outlining a narrative could somehow “explain” the essence of a musical composition. By the time of his final essay in the genre, Symphony No. 6 (the Pathétique), he’d developed an esoteric, “private” program that generations of commentators have tried to decipher. It’s possible that, in the wake of his detailed programs for the Fourth and especially the Manfred Symphonies, Tchaikovsky had simply gotten fed up with seeing his music reduced to the equivalent of a publisher’s blurb, preferring instead to encourage his audience to listen to what was actually being expressed in his latest work.
S E R I ES
proper, Tchaikovsky explores a dreamy sensibility, spinning it out in the manner of one of his characteristic waltzes. This music introduces a disarming naïvete into the symphonic context. Compared to the length of the other three movements, the Valse’s brevity underscores the fleeting nature of this respite. Tchaikovsky nearly lulls us to the point of not noticing the understated appearance of the fate theme as it steals in near the very end, where, against the plucked strings’ waltz, it appears in low, dark colors. The finale mirrors the same overall structure as the first movement, with a slow introduction leading to the main movement, but here the anticlimactic ending is reversed by a triumphant breakthrough. In the introduction, the fate theme is pronounced with majestic, major-key bravado. With some help from the timpani, this segues into an Allegro vivace of breathtaking energy in which the fate theme periodically emerges. Finally, after a notorious “false” stop several minutes before the
CL A SS I C A L
theme share a striking rhythmic pattern. After laying out a profusion of ideas, Tchaikovsky ends the exposition with a thrilling climax that restores focus. But just as we seem poised for a powerful, fully orchestrated restatement of the theme in the coda, he dims the volume and darkens the texture in a kind of anticlimax, as if to indicate a hopeless circle being traced back to the brooding depths where we began. The Andante begins with another variation on the deep melancholy of the opening. Tunesmiths from the 1930s crafted a popular hit out of this melody, which suggests a gently amorous nocturne. A counter theme, first presented as a call-and-response by oboe and horn, almost imperceptibly enters into the picture as well. About halfway through, the fate theme stealthily returns, only to erupt with full power in the brass. It later returns with brutal violence. The lyrical music becomes fragmented, unable to recapture its original serene glow. In the third movement, instead of a scherzo
CL A SS I C A L S E R I ES
end, the music courses ahead in a rush of frenzied, joyful abandon. But has unequivocal victory really been achieved? In the very last measures, Tchaikovsky even revives the main theme of the first movement, also now steel-plated in the major, and adds a pompous rhetorical flourish, as if to underscore “The End.” There’s at least a hint of irony, of protesting too much — perhaps foreshadowing Shostakovich’s strategy in his own Fifth Symphony. Tchaikovsky, in any case, voiced his own doubts about the effectiveness of this ending. In his next, and final, symphony, he would reverse its apparent optimism with music of inescapable doom. The Symphony No. 5 is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani and strings. — Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator.

iancarlo Guerrero is Music Director of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra (NSO) and concurrently holds the position of Principal Guest Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra Miami Residency. Last year, he led the Nashville Symphony to a GRAMMY® win for a second consecutive year with their recording of American composer Joseph Schwantner’s Concerto for Percussion and Orchestra. His previous recording with the orchestra of Michael Daugherty’s Metropolis Symphony and Deus Ex Machina won three 2011 GRAMMY® Awards, including Best Orchestral Performance. A fervent advocate of new music and contemporary composers, Guerrero has collaborated with and championed the works of several of America’s most respected composers, including John Adams, John Corigliano, Osvaldo Golijov, Jennifer Higdon, Michael Daugherty, Roberto Sierra and Richard Danielpour. In the 2012/13 season, Guerrero makes debuts with the BBC Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin and Norwegian Radio Orchestra. He returns to the Boston, Indianapolis and Toronto Symphony Orchestras, Philadelphia Orchestra for both its subscription season and at Vail, Brussels Philharmonic, Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra and to Australia for performances with the Adelaide Symphony and Auckland Philharmonia. An advocate for young musicians and music education, Guerrero now returns annually to Caracas, Venezuela, to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar and to work with young musicians in the country’s lauded El Sistema music program. This season he will also work with the student orchestras of Curtis Institute and the Colburn School. In recent seasons Guerrero has appeared with many of the major North American orchestras, including the symphony orchestras of Baltimore,
Boston, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, Philadelphia, San Diego, Seattle, Toronto, Vancouver and the National Symphony in Washington, D.C., as well as at several major summer festivals, including the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, The Cleveland Orchestra at Blossom Music Festival and Indiana University’s summer orchestra festival. He is also establishing an increasingly visible profile in Europe, where his upcoming engagements will include a debut appearance with the London Philharmonic Orchestra. Last season, he led a five-city European tour with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic. Early in his career, Guerrero worked regularly with the Costa Rican Lyric Opera, and in recent seasons has conducted new productions of Carmen, La Bohème and Rigoletto. Future plans include productions at the Houston Grand Opera and Marseille Opera. In February 2008, he gave the Australian premiere of Osvaldo Golijov’s one-act opera Ainadamar at the Adelaide Festival, to great acclaim. In June 2004, Guerrero was honored with the Helen M. Thompson Award by the American Symphony Orchestra League, which recognizes outstanding achievement among young conductors nationwide. Guerrero holds degrees from Baylor and Northwestern universities. He was previously the Music Director of the Eugene Symphony in Oregon. From 1999 to 2004, he served as Associate Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, where he made his subscription debut in March 2000 leading the world premiere of John Corigliano’s Phantasmagoria on the Ghosts of Versailles. Prior to his tenure with the Minnesota Orchestra, he served as Music Director of the Táchira Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela.
lbert-George Schram, a native of the Netherlands, has served as Resident Conductor of the Nashville Symphony since 2006. While he has conducted on all series the orchestra offers, Schram is primarily responsible for its Bank of America Pops Series. Schram’s longest tenure has been with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, where he has worked in a variety of capacities since 1979. As a regular guest conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Schram in 2002 opened the orchestra’s new permanent summer home, Symphony Park. From 1990 to 1996, he served as resident conductor of the Louisville Orchestra. The former Florida Philharmonic Orchestra appointed Schram as resident conductor beginning with the 2002/03 season. In 2008 Schram was invited to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional of Bolivia and the Orquesta Sinfónica UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. His other foreign conducting engagements have included the KBS Symphony Orchestra and the Taegu Symphony Orchestra in Korea, and the Orchester der Allgemeinen Musikgesellschaft Luzern in Switzerland.

In the U.S., his recent and coming guest conducting appearances include the Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Tucson Symphony, Louisiana Philharmonic, Oklahoma City Philharmonic, Spokane Symphony, Dayton Philharmonic, Shreveport Symphony, San Antonio Symphony, Allentown Symphony and the Mansfield Symphony. Schram’s studies have been largely in the European tradition under the tutelage of Franco Ferrara, Rafael Kubelik, Abraham Kaplan and Neeme Järvi. He received his initial training at the Conservatory of The Hague in the Netherlands, then later moved to Canada to undertake studies at the universities of Calgary and Victoria. His training was completed at the University of Washington.

This season she is also the Acting Director for the Nashville Symphony Chorus. Corcoran appears this season with The Cleveland Orchestra, Naples Philharmonic, Louisville Orchestra, Knoxville Symphony and as a Music Director candidate with the Topeka Symphony and FargoMoorhead Symphony. She has conducted major orchestras throughout the country, including the Atlanta, Detroit, Houston, Milwaukee and National Symphonies, often with return engagements. In 2009, she made her South American debut as a guest conductor with the Orquesta Sinfónica UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina, returning for multiple subscription programs in 2011. Named as Honorable Mention for the Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship, Corcoran studied with Marin Alsop and shared performances with her and the Bournemouth (UK) Symphony and Colorado Symphony. Prior to Nashville, she completed three seasons as assistant conductor for the Canton Symphony Orchestra in Ohio and music director of the Canton Youth Symphony and the Cleveland-area Heights Chamber Orchestra. Corcoran attended the Lucerne Festival’s master class in conducting with Pierre Boulez. In 2004, Corcoran participated in the National Conducting Institute, where she studied with Leonard Slatkin. Her past posts include assistant music director of the Nashville Opera, founder/music director of the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra and fellow with the New World Symphony. Originally from Massachusetts and a member of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus for more than 10 years, Corcoran received her Bachelor of Music in vocal performance from The Boston Conservatory and her Master of Music in instrumental conducting from Indiana University.

LEGACY SOCIETY LEAVING A LEGACY, BUILDING A FUTURE When Schermerhorn Symphony Center opened to the public in 2006, we envisioned our concert hall serving many generations for decades to come. If you have that same vision for the Nashville Symphony, then a planned gift can become your ultimate demonstration of commitment and support. You can help us plan for our future — and your own — through this creative approach to philanthropy and estate planning, which allows you to make a significant contribution to the Nashville Symphony while also enjoying income and tax benefits for you and your family. Great orchestras, like all great cultural institutions throughout history, are gifts to posterity; they are built and bestowed to succeeding generations by visionary philanthropists. To find out more about planned giving opportunities, please visit NashvilleSymphony.org/plannedgiving, or contact Hayden Pruett, Major Gifts Officer, at 615.687.6615

Mark Tedder, MD Saint Thomas Heart Cardiac Surgeon
A lifesAving AdvAncement is giving heArt pAtients
a new lease on life Thanks to new surgical techniques, patients with previously inoperable and high-risk valvular heart issues are going on to potentially live full, healthy lives. Transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR) is a minimally invasive alternative to open heart surgery that has a significantly shorter recovery time. Saint Thomas Heart is the first FDA approved program in the state to perform this procedure through
the rib cage for patients with arteries that are too small for the transfemoral approach. With TAVR, we are able to help more patients who previously had little hope. For more informations, visit www.SaintThomasHeart.com/TAVR. To schedule an appointment with a Saint Thomas Heart physician, please call 800.345.5016.
One might say in our walk of faith, we’ve been down many paths. But few as exciting as the one we’re on now. With hard hats and rolled sleeves, we’re building a university that will serve students in greater, more innovative ways than ever in our history. Two new health science buildings providing state-of-the-art facilities for nursing and pharmacy.
Lend a Hand, Buy the Foot!
In just the past 24 months— 16 new graduate programs, with more to come, that meet the demands of today’s workforce in fields such as information technology and biomolecular science. And almost 60 new faculty members to help us keep our stride. Watch us as we hammer out our future and take some exciting steps forward.
To us, this is a stepping stone.
