CHAIKOVSKY’S 1812 OVERTURE
MEET OUR MUSICIANS
Member of the Nashville Symphony since: 1998 Hometown: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Could you explain the role of the bass in the orchestra and what drew you to this instrument? The bass is the rhythmic and harmonic foundation of the orchestra — and although it’s vitally important, it’s also one of those things you may not notice until it’s not there. From the first time I played bass in an orchestra, I was astonished by how incredible it felt to be at the bottom of everything and having all the overtones of the other instruments stacking up on top of me. Also, just having your body behind this instrument that is vibrating and moving so much air is a unique physical sensation. Which composers write the best music for the bass? A lot of the best music for bass has been written by bass players. If you look back through history, various virtuosos of the instrument like Dragonetti, Bottesini and Koussevitsky wrote some of the best music for bass. Today we have Edgar Meyer, a wonderful composer and virtuoso whose music is some of the most beautiful and interesting ever written for the double bass. With an instrument that big, you must have some interesting stories about getting around with it. I actually drive a Honda Fit, which is one of the smallest cars on the road, and it’s not a problem to get a bass in there. But taking the bass from the car to the venue is always a little bit of a challenge. I have a wheel that fits onto the
endpin, which makes it a lot easier. You do get people asking, “Don’t you wish you played the flute?,” and my usual answer is “No.” One time I checked into a hotel with a big travel trunk, which looks like a big fiberglass coffin, and the guy behind the desk asked, “Is that an oboe?” I just told him yes. Do you have a favorite bass player? I got into playing bass because I was inspired by musicians like Jaco Pastorius, and I first became an electric bass player before I started playing the “real” bass. There are lots of jazz and classical players I enjoy, but some of my favorite bass players are my colleagues in the orchestra. We have some great musicians in this bass section. What do you enjoy about being a member of the Nashville Symphony? One of the most wonderful things about being in this orchestra is my colleagues. I feel very lucky to work in this beautiful facility and share the stage with so many wonderful artists. It’s really an honor. I could not be happier in the place I’ve landed. I have a family, and we just love Nashville. Although I’m originally from Pittsburgh, I never did become acclimated to those winters. What makes the Nashville Symphony audience special? It’s really inspiring to play for this audience because we play a lot of unusual music on a regular basis, and I’m amazed by how well it is received and how well it is understood. InConcert

Video Games Live bridges a gap for entertainment by exposing new generations of music lovers and fans to the symphonic orchestral experience while also providing a completely new and unique experience for families and/or nongamers. Whether it’s the power and passion of the more recent blockbusters or the excitement of remembering the sentimental classics you played growing up, Video Games Live will be a special night to remember. Even if you have never played a video game, you’ve never heard or seen an orchestral performance quite like this. A NOTE FROM CRE ATOR AND P RO D U C E R TOM M Y TA L L A R I CO My dream when I started working on Video Games Live in 2002 was to demonstrate how artistic and culturally significant video games have become. Aside from opening the eyes of non-gamers to the industry, my goal is to help usher in a whole new generation of people to appreciate symphonic music. Video Games Live has become the most successful video game tour in the world. As we continue to travel around the globe, we carry on the commitment to reaffirm that video games

ABOUT THE BASEBALL MUSIC PROJECT SUMMER
Baseball and music have been indelibly intertwined since the sport’s inception. Nearly 100 songs were written about baseball between 1858 and 1900 alone, and the major collections of baseball music in the United States contain more than 1,000 works written about the sport, commencing with the first known piece of baseball music, J.R. Blodgett’s “The Baseball Polka,” composed in 1858. Founded in 2004 by a group of music professionals with a nearly uncontainable love and passion for both baseball and music, The Baseball Music Project is dedicated to fostering greater awareness of the cultural lineage and historical significance of music written about baseball.
ABOUT THE ARTISTS DAVE WINFIELD, narrator
Dave Winfield’s career is a unique chapter in American sports history. Hailed as one of the greatest athletes ever to play professional sports, he is one of only seven players in the history of Major League Baseball to reach over 3,000 hits and over 450 home runs. The 12-time All-Star is among the all-time leaders in hits, home runs and RBIs. He was inducted into the National Baseball Hall of Fame in 2001, his first year of eligibility. Winfield began his career as a Williams Scholar at the University of Minnesota, where he played Big Ten basketball and baseball. An AllAmerican in baseball, he was voted MVP of the 1973 College World Series as a pitcher, was a No. 1 draft pick and never spent a day in the minor leagues. Even today, he remains the only athlete ever to be drafted by four professional sport leagues: basketball (NBA Atlanta Hawks, ABA Utah Stars), football (NFL Minnesota Vikings) and baseball (MLB San Diego Padres).
J UNE 2 0 1 3
Winfield’s professional career took off in 1973 with the San Diego Padres, followed by eight All-Star seasons with the New York Yankees. In 1990, he joined the California Angels, followed by a magical year with the Toronto Blue Jays, for whom he drove in the winning run of the 1992 World Series. Dave returned to his native Minnesota and reached the 3,000th hit milestone with the Twins. He ended his 22-year career after the 1995 season with the American League Champion Cleveland Indians. Currently a studio analyst for ESPN SportsCenter, Winfield is also an executive vice president/senior advisor for the San Diego Padres. Well-known for his philanthropy, he was the first active professional athlete to create a 501(c)(3) charitable foundation, the Winfield Foundation, and inspired many other athletes to do the same. ROBERT THOMSON, music director, founder & producer Robert Thompson grew up in Hawthorne, New York, the resting place of Babe Ruth. Together with former New York Yankee and Latin GRAMMY®-nominated musician Bernie Williams, he co-wrote the book Rhythms of the Game: The Link Between Musical and Athletic Performance. He is also co-author of Baseball’s Greatest Hit: The Story of Take Me Out to the Ball Game. Thompson is a two-time GRAMMY®nominated producer and musician, having toured and performed with an array of artists and groups, including the Moody Blues, Yes, The Temptations and The Four Tops. He served as

PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY Born on May 7, 1840, in Votkinsk, Russia; died on November 6, 1893, in St. Petersburg, Russia Romeo and Juliet: Fantasy Overture
Tchaikovsky composed the first version of his concert overture to Romeo and Juliet in 1869. He later revised the score twice, completing the third and definitive version in 1880. A breakthrough work for the young composer, then on the verge of turning 30, this music points ahead to the compelling emotional drama of his later symphonies and operas, all rendered with Tchaikovsky’s signature mastery of the orchestra. First performance: March 16, 1870, in Moscow, with Nikolai Rubinstein conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: April 8, 1947 (during the orchestra’s inaugural season), with Music Director William Strickland Estimated length: 20 minutes
hakespeare helped provide the impetus for Tchaikovsky to find his authentic voice with this orchestral masterpiece. The idea for an independent concert piece based on the Bard’s star-crossed lovers seems almost predestined for the sensitive Tchaikovsky, though the actual idea was planted by Mily Balakirev, a fellow composer, conductor and promoter who served as a guru to the still-unknown young artist. Tchaikovsky wrote the score in six weeks near the end of 1869, but he was dissatisfied and later wrote a more effective ending for the standard version after he had already become famous. Instead of patterning the overture after Shakespeare’s narrative in an obvious, linear fashion, Tchaikovsky distills its main elements into recognizable sections. His musical architecture and thematic material reflect the powerful contrast of forces involved: feuding families and a love that transcends violence.
J UNE 2 0 1 3
Although Tchaikovsky termed the overture a “fantasy,” he didn’t write a loosely connected string of episodes; rather, he adapted well-worn classical form to his purpose in an original way. Three key elements from the play serve as the basis for his musical narrative: the understanding intervention of Friar Laurence, the division between the hostile families, and the young couple’s blindingly intense love.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R A somber introduction — part slow march, part chorale — is often associated with the Friar on account of the lower woodwinds’ quasireligious, contemplative strains. This accelerates into thrilling, rapid-fire music that almost cinematically evokes the clashing families. As familiar as the transcendent love theme has become, in its original context it expresses the lovers’ passion with extraordinary effectiveness
Suite No. 4 in G major, Op. 61 “Mozartiana” The Suite No. 4 — which Tchaikovsky in fact never numbered — was titled “Mozartiana” by the composer, who wrote it in the summer of 1887 as a tribute to his idol, as well as to mark the centenary of Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni. All of the music was originally composed by Mozart, with a small bit added on by Franz Liszt, but Tchaikovsky’s orchestrations reinterpret this music for his own time. First performance: November 26, 1887, in Moscow, with the composer conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: January 22 & 23, 1988, with guest conductor Kazuyoshi Akiyama Estimated length: 25 minutes
omeo and Juliet naturally inspired Tchaikovsky to compose in his more familiar Romantic vein, but there’s a thread in his work that deliberately references “old-fashioned” styles or musical material within a contemporary context. In a way, this approach foreshadows the neoclassical phase of Stravinsky and other
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R The “Mozartiana” Suite is a prime example of how we hear any music of the past through the filter of our own time. Tchaikovsky stated his aim was “to provide new occasions in which to perform these musical gems — so abundant in exceptional charms, though so unpretentious in their form.” While the orchestral textures are lighter than when Tchaikovsky is writing in his own voice, the ensemble is larger than what would have been typical in Mozart’s time. First comes a setting of a brief gigue (or “jig,” originally K. 574 in Mozart’s catalogue), a spirited dance type sometimes used to provide
The Overture is scored for 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, cymbals, bass drum, harp and strings.
20th-century composers. The “Mozartiana” Suite, though, shows this tendency in its most sincere form, without any touch of irony. Here Tchaikovsky doesn’t mimic the past but pays direct homage to the composer he claimed as his foremost idol: “The fact that I dedicated my life to music I owe to Mozart.” “Idol” isn’t a hyperbole: Tchaikovsky described his reverence for Mozart in quasireligious terms, referring to him as “the highest, supreme point attained by beauty in the sphere of music.” He considered Don Giovanni the ultimate musical masterpiece and treated Mozart’s autograph score as a sacred relic. So when the music world was observing the 100th anniversary of this opera in 1887, Tchaikovsky determined to make a contribution of his own by orchestrating a series of pieces by Mozart. He had already written three previous orchestral “suites” — a format that appealed to him because it offered more freedom than the symphony, with its conventions and constraints. The present suite differs from these predecessors, since here Tchaikovsky arranges preexisting music instead of composing his own. The first, second and fourth movements come from relatively obscure pieces Mozart wrote for the keyboard. The third is ultimately from a well-known, brief choral piece, the Ave verum corpus, written in Mozart’s final year — but for this Tchaikovsky used as his source a keyboard arrangement by Franz Liszt that included framing material added by the latter.
through Tchaikovsky’s meandering, unexpected harmonic shifts and instrumental textures. Overall, Tchaikovsky’s palette alternates between darkly ominous colors and exciting full-on ensemble passages. The feud music, for example, gathers the orchestra into an unstoppable rush, while the English horn and viola that introduce Romeo and Juliet’s love theme suggest a melancholy oasis set apart from the swirling violence. But when Tchaikovsky later restates this theme, he elaborates it into a more extravagant confession of passion, which is in turn interrupted by the relentless music of battle. A dirge-like pattern in the final section underscores the tragic death of the lovers, while their theme soars one last time, only to be silenced finally by a chilling, abrupt fanfare.
an ebullient finale to a Classical-era symphony or concerto. Another dance, the minuet, is the basis for the second movement (from Mozart’s K. 355). The third movement, titled “Prayer,” reminds us of Tchaikovsky’s religious feelings for Mozart: the Ave verum corpus (K. 618) is a motet celebrating one of the major Catholic feast days. Tchaikovsky soups up Mozart’s originally lucid textures with harp and high strings in a way that borders on kitsch to contemporary ears but that epitomizes the rarefied, “celestial” image Mozart sometimes conjured for the late Romantics. (It’s interesting to note that Mozart was also admired for the “demonic” character of his music for Don Giovanni.) Tchaikovsky ends the suite with a variations movement Mozart originally wrote based on a simple tune from an opera by Gluck (K. 455). It’s a poetically apt conclusion to the notion of Mozart himself as a theme reinterpreted by each era. The “Mozartiana” Suite is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, cymbals, glockenspiel, harp and strings.
Polonaise from Eugene Onegin, Op. 24 Tchaikovsky composed his opera Eugene Onegin in 1877-78. Based on a classic verse novel by Pushkin, the opera is an innovative series of lyric scenes that explore the intimate emotional lives of its young couples. The Polonaise conjures the glittering social world in which they are fated to play out their roles. First performance: The opera was first performed on March 29, 1879, at the Moscow Conservatory, with Nikolai Rubinstein conducting.

relevance. The story revolves around the worldweary, alienated title hero (or anti-hero), who coldly rejects the young Tatyana’s confession of love as a silly outburst. He reluctantly duels with and kills his best friend; by the end of it all, the tables — as Tennessee Williams might have put it — have “turned with a vengeance.” Tatyana has found a reserved happiness, or peace at least, by marrying the elderly Prince Gremin, and Onegin returns, this time confessing that he loves her. Tatyana’s feelings have persisted, but she rejects him out of respect for Gremin, explaining to the distraught Onegin that “you cannot bring back the past.” In his own life, Tchaikovsky had recently received a confession of love from a young woman and former student of his at the Conservatory. It coincided with a growing desire on Tchaikovsky’s part to quell ongoing gossip about his sexuality. The composer made the disastrous decision to marry, only to seek a way out as soon as possible. But amid all this turmoil, he crafted a boldly innovative opera of lyrical scenes that anticipate Chekhov in their moments of heartbreaking desperation and honesty.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Dances serve an important function in Eugene Onegin, since they establish the social backdrop against which these private tales of misaligned longing and their consequences play out. The various waltzes and polonaises, with their familiar rhythms, insinuate a disarming texture of “normal” life that becomes a flashy, extroverted contrast to moments of inward lyrical intensity. A polonaise, originally associated with Polish folk music, refers to a dance in triple meter with an especially lively rhythmic “snap.” The vivacious polonaise that we hear sets the scene for a grand ball at Prince Gremin’s palace in the final act, where Onegin returns for his crushing renewed encounter with the more mature Tatyana. The Polonaise is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani and strings.
Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23
t was one thing to have Eduard Hanslick, a formidable music critic of the era, denounce Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto (1878). But try to imagine the composer’s outrage and betrayal when one of his strongest champions up till then declared that the First Piano Concerto was “so badly written as to be beyond rescue.” That was the judgment of conductor and pianist Nikolai Rubinstein, a respected musician who had led the premiere of the Romeo and Juliet Overture. Christmas Eve 1874 was not a happy one for the composer. He had arranged to give a private run-through of his ambitious new piano concerto, then still in progress. The stakes were high: Tchaikovsky had been winning advocates but still needed a decisive success with a major new work. Since he wasn’t a professional pianist, he hoped to solicit technical advice from Rubinstein, a celebrated keyboard performer. Tchaikovsky even fancied that Rubinstein might give his piece an extra seal of approval by premiering it himself. As Tchaikovsky recounted from the distance of a few years: “I played the first movement. Not a single word, not a single comment! If you knew how stupid and intolerable the situation of a man is who cooks and sets a meal before a friend, a meal the friend then proceeds to eat — in silence!... I summoned all my patience and played
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R The opening is one of the most famous moments in Tchaikovsky — in all of Romantic music, in fact. A simple, four-note motif from the horns demands attention. Its insistent repetitions set the scene for the dramatic and passionate melody that then unfolds in the strings. Even if the hammer-chord gestures with which the pianist frames the tune have been endlessly parodied by Liberace stylings, this curtain raiser retains is ability to stir up a sense of excitement and grandeur. Brass chords form a bridge into the main
First performance: October 25, 1875, in Boston, with Hans von Bülow as soloist and Benjamin Johnson Lang conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: October 26, 1954, with Music Director Guy Taylor and guest pianist Gina Bachauer Estimated length: 35 minutes
Tchaikovsky composed the first draft of his First Piano Concerto between November and December 1874 while living in St. Petersburg. He finished orchestrating it within a few months, but went on to revise the score in later years. Despite adverse reactions from his mentor, the Concerto shows the young Tchaikovsky consolidating his powers, and it has remained a beloved staple of the concert hall.
through to the end. Still silence. I stood up and asked, ‘Well?’ ” Rubinstein then launched into a vitriolic denunciation of the concerto. From the gist of it, Tchaikovsky notes, “an independent witness in the room might have concluded that I was a maniac, an untalented, senseless hack who had come to submit his rubbish to an eminent musician.” Rubinstein tried to soften the blow by suggesting the piece might work with massive rewrites, to which Tchaikovsky erupted, “I shall not alter a single note; I shall publish the work exactly as it stands!” In fact, Tchaikovsky, who was his own harshest critic, did later publish a revised version, though with only minor tweaks. But in the meantime the conductor and pianist Hans von Bülow took on the role of the concerto’s champion. Unlike Rubinstein, Bülow believed the score overflowed with original ideas that were expressed in a clear and mature form. Bülow gave the premiere as the soloist during an American tour. It probably comes as no surprise that Tchaikovsky vehemently rubbed Rubinstein’s name off the title page and replaced it with Bülow’s. Although he wasn’t present for the world premiere in Boston, Tchaikovsky soon heard of its triumph. It became so popular in America that on his own tour, Tchaikovsky conducted the Concerto for Carnegie Hall’s inaugural concert in 1891. Further vindication arrived when Rubinstein conducted the Moscow premiere in December 1875.
movement proper. This whole first movement is vast — several minutes longer than the other two combined. Tchaikovsky speeds up the tempo and sends the soloist skittering across the keyboard in an agitated rhythm. Meanwhile, he returns us to the piece’s gloomy home key in the minor after that short-lived Grand Tune in the introduction, set in a velvety D-flat major. Tchaikovsky gets lots of mileage out of the pensive theme first played by the clarinet. This happens to be one of several imports from folk music — in this case, a Ukrainian tune Tchaikovsky claims he had heard whistled at the market fair by blind beggars. The richly episodic first movement mixes quieter musings with further brashly dramatic outbursts. The soloist’s finger-stretching virtuosity — from delicate, gracious figurations to thunderous double-octaves — is at the service of Tchaikovsky’s far-ranging emotional spectrum. All of these aspects come into play in an extra-long cadenza that resembles a play within a play. The Andantino movement merges the respite of a lyrical slow movement with scherzo fun times. Tchaikovsky orchestrates with chamberlike intimacy, particularly for the piano’s duets with flute and other solo instruments. It all makes for a striking contrast following the epic sprawl of the first movement. The scherzo parts intrude surrealistically, almost in a parody of a waltz. Folk music — again Ukrainian in character, if not an actual quotation — also fuels the fiery finale, with its intriguingly accented main theme seemingly tailor-made for the keyboard. Something of the jittery attitude from the opening movement finds its way into this music, while a contrasting second theme is tenderly songful. At the finale’s climax, this theme gets the same neon-light treatment we recall from the concerto’s big bold opening before Tchaikovsky speeds things up for a final, manic thunderclap of headspinning virtuosity. In addition to solo piano, the Concerto is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani and strings. —Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator.

Cossack Dance from Mazeppa
Tchaikovsky composed his three-act opera Mazeppa between 1881 and 1883. Based on an epic poem by Pushkin involving Ukrainian history, the opera is intensely tragic. Here Tchaikovsky sets the scene with an animated dance and the flavor of folklore. First performance: The complete opera premiered on February 15, 1884, in a production at the Bolshoi in Moscow. First Nashville Symphony performance: November 25 & 26, 2005, with conductor David Hamilton Estimated length: 5 minutes
his concert of all Tchaikovsky music begins with a taste of the composer’s operatic work. As the perennial success of his ballets shows, Tchaikovsky commanded a powerful instinct for the theater, and his symphonic music contains some of the most electrifyingly dramatic passages in the repertory as well. For various reasons, only two of his operas are regularly staged in the West (Eugene Onegin and The Queen of Spades), but there’s an abundance of excellent music to be found in his neglected stage works. As with Eugene Onegin and The Queen of Spades, the work of Alexander Pushkin provided the source for Tchaikovsky’s seventh opera, Mazeppa. Part political thriller, part love story, the plot is based on a historical incident in the time of Peter the Great. It involves a 17th-century military commander, Ivan Mazeppa, who is caught between love for the much younger Mariya and vengeance against her father. Angry because his daughter has eloped with Mazeppa, Mariya’s father attempts to betray Mazeppa’s plans to lead a secession of the Ukrainian people, but his scheme backfires.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R The Cossack Dance (also known as the hopak) is played early in the first act. Like the polonaise or waltz, the hopak as a general type was transferred from folk culture to the concert hall by Russian composers striving for an authentic national style. In this specific case, the boisterous festivity of the dance contains no clue to the multiple tragedies that will unfold in the opera (rejection, a family broken up, torture, execution, warfare and insanity). The mature and respected Mazeppa is here being feted by Mariya’s parents, who are shortly to be astonished that he wants to claim their daughter in marriage. Tchaikovsky has the orchestra strike up an exciting rhythmic pulse before the rest of the ensemble bursts out in colorful phrases. A second folk-like tune takes the stage, and the ideas are traded back and forth. In the concluding passage, the tempo becomes more frenzied as the celebration of Ukrainian culture reaches its climax. The Cossack Dance is scored for 3 flutes (1 doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (1 doubling English horn), 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 cornets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion and strings.

Serenade for Strings in C major, Op. 48
Serenade for Strings dates from the fall of 1880. While in many ways Tchaikovsky expresses the Romantic temperament, Mozart always remained his artistic touchstone, and the Serenade represents a tribute to Mozart’s sense of musical beauty and proportion.
First performance: December 3, 1880, in a special private performance arranged at the Moscow Conservatory; the first public performance took place on October 30, 1881, in Saint Petersburg. First Nashville Symphony performance: March 22, 2005, with Music Director Kenneth Schermerhorn Estimated length: 34 minutes
chaikovsky was fashioning this orchestral serenade around the same time as the allstops-out 1812 Overture, which gives you an idea of how far this composer’s imagination could range. The enormous popularity of the latter piece makes for a bit of irony: The sound of the “festival overture” is now fixed in the public ear as perhaps the composer’s signature work, even though, as far as Tchaikovsky himself was concerned, he had put his heart into the Serenade for Strings. He later wrote that it had been written “from inner conviction.” One reason Tchaikovsky was so fond of the Serenade may have to do with his special reverence for Mozart. It was his early encounters with Mozart’s music that made him decide to devote his life to composing, and in 1887, he would write an orchestral suite based on pieces by Mozart to honor the 100th anniversary of his opera Don Giovanni. The Serenade for Strings also entails a Mozart homage, if a less direct one. By invoking the genre of the multi-movement, melody-rich serenade, Tchaikovsky is recalling a type of music that had been perfected by Mozart during his Salzburg years — a musical genre that was often used to celebrate special occasions (weddings, graduation ceremonies and the like). Tchaikovsky’s choice of instrumentation also reveals a Mozartian angle. While the classical serenade typically called for some mix of strings,
J UNE 2 0 1 3
woodwinds and possibly brass, Mozart’s beloved A Little Night Music was unusually cast for strings alone. Tchaikovsky echoes this example by confining himself to strings, since he admired the special clarity of textures this ensemble allows. The Serenade’s four movements suggest something “between a symphony and a string quartet,” as he put it — but in a more relaxed vein, without the heavy-duty working out of motifs conventionally associated with those genres. At the same time, Tchaikovsky writes a separate line for the double basses. This instrument is merely an optional addition in Mozart’s score for A Little Night Music, which can be performed by string quartet plus bass or a full string ensemble. Thus the Serenade was conceived with a more full-bodied sound in mind than the truly chamber-like dimensions of Mozart’s ensemble. Another contemporary touch is that Tchaikovsky unifies the entire Serenade through motivic echoes and internal connections — very much in line with the thinking of the later Romantics.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R A slow introduction sets the stage for the Allegro moderato first movement, which Tchaikovsky describes as “a piece in the form of a sonatina” (i.e., a typical first-movement sonata form, but without a central development section). The full ensemble plays a dignified chord sequence reminiscent of a stirring chorale. Its play on the basic idea of scalar motion — here in a pronounced descent — provides the seed for much of Tchaikovsky’s material throughout the work. The first movement proper launches with a simple motif of four notes. The gracefully tapered scales that dart in and out of the foreground suggest a further nod to Mozart’s ingenuity in giving “transition passages” a vivid life of their own. A reprise of the slower opening music ends the movement, but Tchaikovsky asks for a powerfully voiced extra-loud chord in the final measure. The classical poise of the minuet gets updated to a lilting waltz in the second movement. This is, after all, one of Tchaikovsky’s specialties — something choreographer George Balanchine
Tchaikovsky composed the Capriccio italien in 1879-80. Inspired by his stay in Rome, this orchestral postcard, decked out with Italian tunes, shows the composer in a fresher, more buoyant mood — though at the time he was going through a phase of intense personal turmoil.
t can be a mistake to try to sync up an artist’s internal state of mind with the emotional character or mood of the artwork produced at the same time. This is especially true for a composer like Tchaikovsky, confessional tone poet that he is. If, as cliché has it, he went about continually shrouded in melancholy, how to explain the ebullient spirits of his unforgettable dance music? And in the case of the Capriccio italien, how could such a delectable piece be the product of one of the composer’s bleakest streaks of despair and world-weariness? Tchaikovsky soon came to realize what a mistake he had made by entering into
The Serenade is scored for a string orchestra divided into first and second violins, violas, cellos and double basses.

a heterosexual marriage in 1877, and he experienced years of emotional freefall as he worked his way through its consequences. Following some stunning accomplishments, including the completion of the monumental Fourth Symphony, his creative work slowed down dramatically while the composer traveled about Europe in search of distraction. He became a “wandering recluse,” in the apt phrase of biographer David Brown. One of his journeys took him to Rome, where Tchaikovsky — always highly sensitive to impressions from his surroundings — made the rounds absorbing works of art and taking in the sights and sounds

movement. The second is in a faster tempo and more clearly related to the dance. Tchaikovsky scores for the strings in a way that mimics native Russian instruments. A sudden modulation of key gives the cue for yet another gratifying tune, which is played high in the cello’s register. Before the unbuttoned final passage, Tchaikovsky makes it clear that the first notes of the Serenade’s opening chorale were simply a slowed-down version of the finale’s Russian dance tune, thus cleverly emphasizing the Serenade’s unity of conception. In his more outwardly ambitious works — above all, the symphonies — Tchaikovsky struggled over a lack of confidence in dealing with issues of formal design. But the Serenade represents one of his most delightfully balanced achievements, in which all the parts find a perfect place within the whole.
recognized when he designed a ballet based on this music in 1936. The ascending scale shaping the main theme is yet another riff on the motivic pattern now familiar from the first movement. In contrast to the first movement’s ending, however, the music here comes to rest on gentle, barely audible plucked chords. The third movement, the Serenade’s emotional heart, is a slow movement Tchaikovsky titles Elégie. That sounds quite serious, but as biographer David Brown points out, “this is no funereal piece.” Like the first movement, the Elégie begins with a chorale-like passage, which is followed by the first violins intoning an elegant, songlike melody against plucked-string accompaniment. A delicately understated pathos emerges in the darker harmonies near the end. The Elégie fades out on a suspended high D in the first violins, which the finale picks up in its opening bars. Another slow introduction (with muted strings) presents one of two tunes borrowed from Russian folk music for this last
of the Carnival season. The term capriccio, or caprice, is here meant to suggest the looser formal structure of the piece, with musical ideas laid side by side in a kind of impressionistic fantasy. This idea wasn’t a spontaneous invention by Tchaikovsky: The term alludes to earlier works that display colorful instrumental virtuosity, and Tchaikovsky was also familiar with the Spanish-themed orchestral music written by his predecessor Mikhail Glinka, one of Russian music’s founding fathers.
W HAT TO LIST E N F OR Tchaikovsky has us rise at the break of dawn with a bugle call he is said to have actually heard each morning from his hotel room, played by the soldiers at a nearby barracks. The fanfare spreads out over the brass section and is succeeded by an almost dirge-like melody in the strings — one of a handful that provides the material for the piece. These shadows are swept aside when the fanfare
again rings out in full, sunny glory, and they then return in mournful woodwind phrases. A genuinely cheerful mood settles in with the next tune, entrusted to the oboes. It’s easy to imagine a peddler singing this while going about the piazza, much as Tchaikovsky evokes a scene of wild dancing in one of the later melodies we hear, a fiery tarantella set to a furious rhythm. This folkdance was associated with the cure for (or the aftereffects of) the poisonous bite of a tarantula, and it also makes an appearance in the finale of Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony. Tchaikovsky refracts all this material through his full orchestral spectrum, crafting a musical souvenir that has served as an instant passport ever since. The Capriccio italien is scored for 3 flutes (1 doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 cornets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, harp and strings.
1812 Overture, Op. 49 Tchaikovsky composed the 1812 Overture in November 1880 for upcoming events to commemorate the Russian victory over Napoleon’s invading army in 1812. One of classical music’s blockbuster pieces, the Overture is an almost cinematically graphic depiction of warfare and patriotic jubilation.
nyone who is burdened by the mistaken impression that classical music (or history, for that matter) is somehow “boring” simply needs to be taken to a live performance of the 1812 Overture to have their socks blown off. (For the record, the official title of this work is The Year 1812: A Festival Overture to Mark the Consecration of the Cathedral of Christ the Savior.) Around 1880, Tchaikovsky’s fortunes back at home in Russia were on the rise, and he was commissioned to write a patriotic piece that would be appropriate for a special exhibition as well as the opening ceremonies of a new cathedral commemorating the defeat of Napoleon’s

invading Grand Army in 1812. The original plan for a coordinated performance in the cathedral square had the elements of site-specific “happening,” but in the end the actual premiere took place in a concert hall. Tchaikovsky also led a performance in New York for the opening of Carnegie Hall in 1891, not long before his death, but it wasn’t until just before the U.S. bicentennial nearly a century later that the 1812 became a standard ritual for July Fourth celebrations.. No matter that generations of snobs have wrinkled their noses at what is, admittedly, music of obviously calculated and even bombastic effect. Tchaikovsky would be the first to agree
Tchaikovsky’s ear for dramatic pacing is so well-tuned that a mapping out of musical events is hardly necessary. He almost anticipates the widely sweeping establishment shots of cinema with his gripping narrative, starting with the whole Russian nation joined in an Orthodox prayer (violas and cellos) as the impending threat approaches. Though the Marseillaise was actually the sonic slogan of the French Revolution, Tchaikovsky exploits its familiarity to represent the invading French forces. A sunlit melody
The 1812 Overture is scored for a large orchestra of 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 cornets, 3 trombones, tuba, percussion and strings. In the finale, the extra brass band part may be played by an organ, and percussion and recordings are usually substituted for the sounds of carillon bells and cannon fire in indoor performances. (You didn’t really want live cannon fire in the concert hall, right?) —Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator.

followed by folk-tinged material sweeps us across a landscape filled with the watching peasantry. It’s especially fun to listen to how Tchaikovsky “stages” the battle in its phases of rout and retreat. At last, of course, victory is celebrated with a blazing, pealing, ringing triumph that sets off an epidemic of goose pimples in audiences no matter how many times they’ve heard this music.
that this hardly represents his most profound artistic statement. (He even wrote his patroness, right after completing the score, and said the piece “will have no artistic merits at all.”) Still, under the constraints of having to produce music to commemorate a specific occasion — unlike his heartfelt Serenade for Strings, which he interrupted to dash off the 1812 Overture — Tchaikovsky created an exhilarating sonic panorama.

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
