Born on June 11, 1864, in Munich, Germany; died on September 8, 1949, in GarmischPartenkirchen, Germany Don Juan, Op. 20 Strauss composed the bulk of Don Juan in the summer of 1888 and completed the score the following year. One of the first in his remarkable series of tone poems (orchestral compositions inspired by literary or other sources outside the realm of music), Don Juan marks the young Strauss’s first major breakthrough into his own voice, establishing his claim as one of the most innovative and enthralling of all musical storytellers. First performance: November 11, 1889 in Weimar, Germany, with the composer conducting. First Nashville Symphony performance: February 16 & 17, 1959, with Music Director Guy Taylor. Estimated length: 18 minutes


hen Richard Strauss emerged on the scene in the late 19th century as music’s new whiz kid, it seemed as if everything had already been done. The twin colossuses of Beethoven and Wagner overshadowed up-and-coming wannabes. But with Don Juan Strauss achieved his first real breakthrough into a style and method of creating music he could claim as his own. Here the 25-yearold genius unequivocally showed that there were still new things to be said using the orchestra. Don Juan represented nothing less than a declaration of independence, and it restored to symphonic composition the kind of expressive potential Wagner had claimed remained possible in the realm of music drama alone. Strauss would go on to inherit Wagner’s mantle as a great composer of German opera, starting with his avant-garde shockers Salome and Elektra in the first decade of the new century, but he first became expert at the art of musical storytelling through purely orchestral works. Don Juan comes early in the series of tone poems through which Strauss perfected his technique. Pioneered by Franz Liszt in the decades just before Strauss appeared, the tone poem is an independent orchestral work whose form is determined by the nature of the “content” that inspires it — whether a poem, a painting or a historical figure. According to his own account, Strauss took inspiration neither from Molière’s brilliant play nor from the cynical libertine depicted by Mozart and his librettist Lorenzo da Ponte in Don Giovanni. Rather, he found a more obscure source in an unfinished dramatic poem about the restless lover by the Austro-Hungarian poet Nikolaus Lenau, published posthumously in 1851. A restless Romantic who died in an asylum, Lenau also wrote an alternative version of the Faust legend and imagined himself as a follower of Goethe’s lineage. He depicts Don Juan as an intensely selfconscious figure, with hints of the Byronic hero and foreshadowings of Nietzsche’s philosophy. In Lenau’s version, Don Juan longs for a love that cannot be satiated and he ends up allowing himself to die in a duel.

W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Strauss famously boasted of being able to set even a grocery list or a pint of beer to music. Moreover,

Don Juan is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle, cymbals, glockenspiel, harp and strings.

K A ROL S Z Y MA N OWSKI Born on October 3, 1882, in Tymoszówka, Ukraine (at the time part of the Russian empire); died on March 29, 1937, in Lausanne, Switzerland Concerto for Violin No. 1 Szymanowski wrote the first of his two violin concertos in 1916. Presenting the violin as a rhapsodic voice that soars above the orchestra, this music reveals a sophisticated blend of international stylistic influences as well as the keen literary sensitivity of the well-traveled Polish composer. First performance: November 1, 1922, in Warsaw, with Józef Ozimiński as the violin soloist and Emil Mlynarski conducting the Warsaw Philharmonic. First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the orchestra’s first performances. Estimated length: 25 minutes




comes a new, heroically potent theme for Don Juan in the horns, while rich elaborations of the other themes convey the impression of untiring, restless change. The triumphant return of the opening has the inevitability of a symphonic recapitulation. What Strauss is up to involves more than episodic scene painting, but rather has a musical logic of its own. After the tone poem reaches its final climax, Strauss withholds expectations of a rousing final summation. Instead, this is interrupted by a tense pause, followed by an eerie chord and delirious string tremolos. This structural rupture is Strauss’s way of calling forth the fatal duel, and the piece ends with a disgusted, unfulfilled Don Juan giving up the ghost as the music fades away inconclusively.


he was still a bachelor while writing this music, ardently pursuing a love affair that must have provided additional inspiration. But we should be cautious about concentrating too literally on Strauss’s extraordinary facility for “illustration” in sound, or on expecting a step-by-step narrative program as we enjoy his tone poem. Expression of the feelings elicited by Don Juan, not description, is what Strauss is after, and he achieves this in purely musical terms. The piece starts with an surging adrenaline rush of energy. The opening theme, typically Straussian in its impetuousness, uses dotted (long-short) rhythms to add a kick to the sense of headlong passion that suggests the ever-striving Don Juan. The lover’s consciousness is what dominates in this score, but a solo oboe provides entrée into a lengthy, swooningly beautiful section in which the point of view apparently shifts to one of Don Juan’s conquests. As the musical landscape alternates between urgency and relaxation, Strauss holds our fascination through his dramatically savvy sense of pacing. In the middle



orn into Poland’s landed gentry, Karol Szymanowski grew up in a cultured family that encouraged his early signs of genius. Three of his siblings went on to devote themselves to musical careers. The first decade of the new century saw the founding of the Warsaw Philharmonic, after the emerging composer had relocated to that city. In Warsaw he congregated with a group of young Polish composers who echoed the aesthetic ideas of a like-minded movement of writers, painters, sculptors and designers. This so-called “Young Poland” movement essentially promoted a fin-de-siècle philosophy of symbolism and art for art’s sake. Despite the considerable attention Szymanowski attracted at first, the artistic climate of partitioned Poland remained conservative and provincial, an environment that hardly encouraged creative innovation. Szymanowski, in contrast, opened himself up to a cosmopolitan range of influences. These included, in his early works, the spirit of his fellow Pole Chopin and the late Romanticism exemplified by Richard Strauss. But Szymanowski’s outlook began to shift as a result of travels he undertook to Italy, Sicily, North Africa and, on the eve of World War I, to Paris. There Szymanowski broke free of the Straussian spell, falling sway instead to French Impressionism, which he mixed with a very un-French mystical bent more akin to the music of the Russian Alexander Scriabin and the Symbolism of the Young Poland movement. The composer’s Sicilian and North African travels in particular stoked his fascination with the classical past, Greek myth and Sufi Islamic culture. The Violin Concerto No. 1 dates from Szymanowski’s most prolific period, when he fully synthesized this range of influences. Thanks to its dreamy, nocturnal qualities, the Concerto is also frequently associated with the third of his fourth symphonies, written between 1914 and 1916 and known as “The Song of the Night.” (Scored for tenor and chorus, this piece sets the Persian love poetry of Rumi.) Both the Violin Concerto No. 1 and the Symphony No. 3 mark the culmination of this period.


J A NUA RY 2 0 1 3

W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Though written during World War I, the Violin Concerto seems at a far remove from any sense of anxiety or upheaval. Using a richly ambiguous harmonic language, Szymanowski achieves a shimmering textural clarity within the work’s single-movement span. Its seductively coloristic soundscape mixes influences from early (pre-Rite of Spring) Stravinsky with Ravel-like nuances of orchestration. The signature sound of the piece soon emerges in the airborne voice of the solo violin playing mesmerizing coils of melody. Szymanowski, himself a pianist, collaborated with his friend, Polish violinist Paweł Kochański, for advice on writing for the instrument, both in the Concerto and in other pieces that have a key role in his middle-period style. Kochański, the Concerto’s dedicatee, in fact wrote the lengthy cadenza that is incorporated near the end, and he later partnered again with the composer for his Violin Concerto No. 2 (1933). He was originally set to perform the world premiere in St. Petersburg, but the Bolshevik Revolution interrupted that plan. (The violinist had emigrated to the United States by the time the premiere could be organized in Warsaw, but he gave the first performance in this country.) Kochański’s performance style is thus woven into some of the technical features of the solo writing here, most notably in its tendency to float high in the register, as well as in its colorful glissandi and rich, earthy double stops. The Concerto’s range of thematic material is suitable for extended lyrical excursions, as well as Szymanowski’s focus on vital, dancelike rhythms. Occasional “exotic” touches add to the rhapsodic persona of the violin and the sensuously perfumed atmosphere. The fantasy that unfolds, however, is firmly grounded in the network of themes. Near the end, the soloist takes the spotlight for Kochański’s elaborate cadenza, which in turn precipitates a new perspective, with hints of recapitulation, on musical ideas pondered throughout the piece. As a final gesture, Szymanowski pares down the texture, as if to suggest fragments of a dream left to evaporate in gentle wisps.

Born on January 27, 1756, in Salzburg, Austria; died on December 5, 1791, in Vienna Symphony No. 39 in E-flat major, K. 543 Mozart composed the Symphony No. 39 during a creative outburst in the summer of 1788, entering the work in his personal catalogue on June 26, 1788. The first of his final trilogy of symphonies, No. 39 combines a majestic formal confidence with richly shaded emotional ambiguity. First performance: There are no recorded details of this work’s first performance, and it remains unknown whether it was even performed during Mozart’s lifetime. First Nashville Symphony performance: April 12 & 13, 1965, with Music Director Willis Page Estimated length: 35 minutes

ozart composed his last three symphonies in rapid sequence during the summer of 1788. The result shows a mature master taking a fascinating diversity of approaches to the same genre, but the impetus behind this de facto trilogy — each member of which is valued among Mozart’s greatest achievements — remains one of the enduring mysteries of his creative life. That Mozart could write music of such variety and flawless design while following the essential pattern of the classical symphony is astonishing enough; that he actually did so for all three in the span of less than two months verges on the superhuman. As a freelance composer in Vienna, Mozart was used to writing music for specifically defined occasions that would bring in revenue. But in the case of these last three symphonies, his motivation has long puzzled biographers. The Viennese public’s receding interest in his music — Don Giovanni’s Vienna premiere failed to cause anything like the sensation that greeted the opera in Prague — meant that Mozart needed to try to find additional sources of income. Yet we lack any clear record of a commission or a benefit concert to explain the origin of these three symphonies, written during a period when the composer was in fact experiencing acute financial stress. Recent scholarship has challenged the once-traditional view that he composed these symphonies “for the ages,” as well as the assumption that he never heard them performed. Still, the mystery enshrouding the origin of these works can’t be neatly dispelled. What is undisputed is that this final trilogy represents the summit of Mozart’s artistry as a symphonist.

W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R The Symphony No. 39 in E-flat has tended to be eclipsed by the extra-musical associations evoked by its companions; i.e., the tragic “pathos” of No. 40 and the august classicism that gave No. 41 its nickname, the “Jupiter.” And yet the inspiration found in this score is on the same exalted level. Indeed, the opening slow introduction provides a marvelous sense of entering into the trilogy as a whole, of a curtain being raised. Its sudden shifts into darker harmonic territory also point to a profound emotional ambiguity and sense







In addition to solo violin, the Violin Concerto No. 1 is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (3rd doubling English horn), 3 clarinets (3rd doubling E-flat clarinet), bass clarinet, 3 bassoons (3rd doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, 2 harps, celesta, piano and strings.


of surprise that intriguingly coexists with the Symphony’s formal confidence. There’s even a spaciousness that anticipates the grandeur that Beethoven would later achieve in the introduction to his Seventh Symphony, in which gestures made of rising scales similarly generate suspense. Instead of a “clean break,” Mozart deftly resolves the introduction’s quiet final cadence to coincide with the opening phrase of the Allegro, which follows a call and response pattern. An economy of thematic material intensifies the impression of vibrant growth. Notice, for instance, how those scales from the introduction are refitted to the context of this faster music. In the Andante, as throughout this Symphony, the ingenuity of Mozart’s treatment of the woodwinds contains lessons from which

Strauss would learn much. Ambiguous shifts of emotional tone affect the tranquility and initial simplicity of the musical ideas, which subtly echo the dotted rhythms of the introduction. Mozart notably omits oboes from the score, enhancing the cheerful warmth of the clarinets, which take center stage in the trio of the elegant yet muscular Minuet. His principle of economy finds its most striking expression in the bustling finale, where one idea is all Mozart needs to serve as the musical motor. The effect is as lively as champagne uncorked, with all the wit and verve expected from a comic opera’s denouement. The Symphony No. 39 is scored for flute, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings.

RI C H A R D STR A U SS Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche (“Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks”), Op. 28 Strauss composed Till Eulenspiegel in 189495. While Don Juan shows off Strauss’s early mastery of characterization and storytelling through orchestral means, Till Eulenspiegel is a tour de force of comic genius and a masterpiece of humor in music.


ollowing the failure in 1894 of his debut opera, Richard Strauss originally intended to base his next effort for the stage on the mischievous folk hero known as Till Eulenspiegel. But he found the material more suitable for the genre of the tone poem, which he had meanwhile been exploring in the concert hall. One advantage was that this particular topic afforded the young firebrand composer a quick and irresistible way to indulge in a bit of revenge against the critics who had already made a habit of savaging him — not the last time Strauss would use musical notes to thumb his nose at enemies. What livelier way to ridicule them than by assuming the persona of the folkloric trickster 24

Till Eulenspiegel? Like Faust, this jester-like rogue and con artist was inspired by an historical medieval model from the 14th century. Just what he signified morphed over the years. Originally presented as a cautionary tale of wickedness, Till became the hero of various legends and fables of speaking truth to power. Stories of his clever mocking of both clergy and stodgy academics, as well as of his detailed flirtations, were circulated in a popular collection filled with scatological humor, which was heavily censored in later versions. The name “Eulenspiegel” is a composite from the German words for “owl” and “mirror,” and has prompted endless speculation about its etymology. The owl was a symbol of wisdom but

Strauss compared his charming introduction to the atmosphere that begins a fairy tale. This is soon rudely interrupted as Till bursts on the scene in a pair of motifs: the first a repeated virtuoso flourish for solo horn spanning almost three octaves, the second a giggle on clarinet. Till’s exploits, depicted in the intervening musical episodes, include riding his horse through the marketplace and overturning its wares (the cartoony sound of a ratchet), dressing up as a clergyman (bloated bassoons and violas), checking out the girls and trying to play Don Juan (giddy strings), and hilariously lampooning a parade of pompous academics. Another galloping horse ride follows, and Till is captured, put on trial and condemned. A snare drum roll and ominous brass suddenly change the atmosphere as Till is marched to the scaffold. His pleas are in vain. The clarinet’s high shriek announces his demise, but Strauss bookends his tone poem with the fairy-tale music from the beginning, allowing the prankster to return for a final, in-your-face surprise. Till Eulenspiegel is scored for piccolo, 3 flutes, 3 oboes, English horn, 3 clarinets, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, ratchet and strings.

JENNIFER KOH, violin Jennifer Koh is recognized for her intense, commanding performances, delivered with dazzling virtuosity and technical assurance. Since the 199495 season, when she won the International Tchaikovsky Competition, the Concert Artists Guild Competition and the Avery Fisher Career Grant, Koh has been heard with leading orchestras and conductors around the world, including the Chicago Symphony, Cleveland Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, BBC London Symphony, Brandenburg Ensemble, Czech Philharmonic, Moscow Radio Symphony, Singapore Symphony and the Mariinsky Theatre Orchestra, among many others. A prolific recitalist, Koh appears frequently at major music centers and festivals including Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, Marlboro, Spoleto, Wolf Trap and The Festival International de Lanaudiere in Canada. Highlights of Koh’s 2012-13 season include her New York Philharmonic subscription debut in Lutosławski’s Chain 2: Dialogue for Violin and Orchestra, conducted by Lorin Maazel. She will also perform Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 2 with the Oregon Symphony, Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy with the Eugene Symphony, Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto with the Naples Philharmonic, and Sibelius’s Violin Concerto with the WinstonSalem Symphony, Westchester Philharmonic and Boulder Philharmonic. Born in Chicago of Korean parents, Koh began playing the violin by chance, choosing the instrument in a Suzuki-method program only because spaces for cello and piano had been filled. She made her debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at age 11. Koh earned her Bachelor of Arts degree in English literature from Oberlin College and went on to study at the Curtis Institute.

also had associations with the devil, as did the original Till. And much of the humor of Till is that he literally reflects people back to themselves as they are, rather than as they pretend to be. The tone poem’s full title — Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, After the Old Rogue’s Tale, Composed in Rondo Form for a Large Orchestra — points to Strauss’s use of a musical form in which easily recognizable themes return amid a variety of musical episodes, though his clever transformations of the thematic material are never predictable.

NASHVILLE JAZZ ORCHESTRA The Nashville Jazz Orchestra is an 18-piece big band with a rhythm section, saxophones, trumpets and trombones, plus guest vocalists. NJO assembles some of the finest working professional musicians in our community to prepare and perform great jazz works from the existing literature, as well as new music and arrangements. The group performs an annual concert series and appears regularly at local music festivals and other public events. It also performs 5-6:30 p.m. most Monday evenings at the Holiday Inn Vanderbilt’s Commodore Grill. In addition, the NJO is an ensemble-in-residence at the Blair School of Music, enabling the group to provide educational outreach to students.




ABBY BURKE Abby Burke holds a BA and a M.Ed. in the study of the psychology and effect of music on the human psyche from Cambridge College. In 2008 she became an ordained

minister, and in 2012 she earned a Doctorate in Divinity from Trinity Evangelical Christian University in Alabama. A 1982-1983 Opryland USA Nashville alumna, Burke returned to Nashville in 1998. Since her return, her professional life has included performances with the Nashville Symphony Orchestra and Maestro Paul Gambill’s Chamber Orchestra Nashville. She performed on the 2006 GRAMMY®-winning album Songs from the Neighborhood: The Music of Mister Rogers. Burke was the first Nashville vocalist to sing at Schermerhorn Symphony Center in a “Tribute to Ray Charles with Maestro Albert George Schram.” Additionally, she has performed with the Paducah, Tucson, Charlotte and Columbus Symphonies, to name a few. The Tennessee Arts Commission honored Burke with an Individual Artists Grant in 2005, and in 2008 she was asked to represent the state at the National Arts Council Conference in Chattanooga. “A smile reflects the marvel of God in the music,” Burke says. “Sharing the gift that has been given to me in order to give hope, see laughter and even sometimes a tear makes my own life amazing!”


MIKE ELDRED Mike Eldred is one of North America’s most in-demand and beloved tenors, thrilling audiences in concert halls, on Broadway, and on recordings, radio and television. He appeared on Broadway in Les Misérables as Jean Valjean, and he was in the original cast of the Tony-nominated The Civil War. He performed in the 25th anniversary tour of Jesus Christ Superstar, and he starred as The Tenor in the 2010 national concert tour of Handel’s Messiah Rocks. His starring role as Tony in the Nashville Symphony’s production of West Side Story has earned international praise as “arguably the best Tony on record.” The cast recording featuring Eldred was released on NAXOS International. Eldred was featured in the PBS Soundstage concert and DVD entitled Dennis DeYoung and the Music of Styx, Live with Symphony Orchestra. He has won numerous performance awards, including Tennessean Actor of the Year and Nashville Scene’s Best Musical Theater Performer. He was nominated as Nashville Music Awards Male Vocalist of the Year. Eldred has performed in concert with many of North America’s symphony orchestras, including Seattle, Toronto, Indianapolis, Dallas, Baltimore, Kansas City, Long Beach, Chicago, Cincinnati, Oklahoma City, Houston, Fort Worth and Edmonton. He has shared the stage with such artists as Stevie Wonder, Garth Brooks, Amy Grant, Trisha Yearwood, Jim Brickman, Luther Vandross, Vince Gill, BeBe and CeCe Winans, Michael Bolton, Dennis DeYoung and Wynonna.

The Chorus, which is formed and managed by local recording and solo artist Odessa Settles, consists of singers from dozens of area colleges, universities, places of worship and choruses, and diverse ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. The diversity within the ensemble displays the ecumenism advocated by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. for “all of God’s children — black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Catholics and Protestants — to stand and sing” together.

CELEBRATION YOUTH CHORUS MARGARET CAMPBELLE-HOLMAN, choral director Celebration Youth Chorus (CYC) is proud to commemorate Nashville Symphony’s 20th anniversary of Let Freedom Sing. Founded in 1997 to serve elementary choral development in Nashville public schools, Nashville’s MET Singers has proudly performed as CYC.

FISK JUBILEE SINGERS® PAUL T. KWAMI, musical director & Curb/Beaman Chair Fisk University opened in Nashville in 1866 as the first American university to offer a liberal arts education to “young men and women irrespective of color.” Five years later the school was in dire financial straits. George L. White, then Fisk’s treasurer and music professor, created a ninemember choral ensemble of students and took it on tour to earn money for the university. The group left campus on October 6, 1871. Jubilee Day is celebrated annually on October 6 to commemorate this historic day. In 1873 the group grew to 11 members and toured Europe for the first time. Funds raised that year were

used to construct Jubilee Hall. This building houses a floorto-ceiling portrait of the Fisk Jubilee Singers®, commissioned by Queen Victoria during the 1873 tour as a gift from England to Fisk. In July 2007, the Fisk Jubilee Singers® went on a sacred journey to Ghana at the invitation of the U.S. Embassy. It was a history-making event, as the ensemble joined in the celebration of the nation’s 50th independence anniversary. In 2008, the Fisk Jubilee Singers® were selected as a recipient of the 2008 National Medal of Arts, the nation’s highest honor for artists and patrons of the arts. President George W. Bush and First Lady Laura Bush presented the award during a ceremony at the White House.

CIVIL RIGHTS COLLECTION OF THE NASHVILLE PUBLIC LIBRARY From its second-story location in the Nashville Public Library, the Civil Rights Collection could be thought of as blooming where it was planted almost a half-century ago. It was in the streets below that students from the city’s four black colleges launched a nonviolent protest against segregated lunch counters and other public accommodations on February 13, 1960, after three months of preparation and planning. The sit-in campaign became a major component of the civil rights movement against racial segregation and injustice in the South and elsewhere across the United States. The Civil Rights Collection occupies the

west wing of the Nashville Room, which is the library’s central repository of historical materials documenting the life of the city since its founding in 1779. This new collection was begun soon after the main library on Church Street was formally opened on June 9, 2001. The space dedicated to the collection was first shown to the public on December 6, 2003. The room features black-and-white photos from the civil rights era by photographers of The Tennessean and Nashville Banner newspapers, as well as display text prepared by members of the Nashville Room staff, ably assisted by some three dozen local citizens and others with direct knowledge of the subject. The complete Civil Rights Collection includes oral histories, published audio and video imprints, ephemera, periodicals, records and manuscripts. Also included are many hard-to-find, out-of-print books, as well as copies of dissertations and documentaries related to social movements. For more information, visit


RANDALL GOOSBY, violin Violinist Randall Goosby performs as part of the Sphinx Professional Development Program sponsored by GM. Only 16, Goosby has appeared with major orchestras, including the New York Philharmonic and The Cleveland Orchestra. He has also made two solo appearances at Carnegie Hall’s Stern Auditorium. He was featured on a live radio broadcast for NPR’s From the Top program, which features performances and captivating personal stories of extraordinary young classical musicians. His Junior Division victory at the 13th Annual Sphinx Competition in Detroit in 2010 instantly led to a special invitation by the New York Philharmonic to appear at their prestigious Young People’s Concert series at Avery Fisher Hall, and to an invitation by actor Delroy Lindo to perform at the 18th Annual MOVIEGUIDE® Faith & Values Awards Gala. Goosby has also received grand prizes at the Mid-South Fair’s Youth Talent Competition and the Young Artists Concerto Competition at the Conservatory Music in the Mountains in Durango, Colorado. He was a winner of the Memphis Youth Symphony’s Concerto Competition and Germantown Symphony’s Young Artist Concerto Competition. Goosby began playing violin at age 7, made his first public performance age 8, and his orchestral debut at 9 with the Jacksonville Symphony in Florida. He is an 11th-grade student in Memphis, and he currently studies violin with Itzhak Perlman and Catherine Cho at Juilliard’s pre-college program, where he is in his second year.

Selections to be announced from the stage.

ABOUT THE PROGRAM Monterey is one of the longest running jazz festivals in the world. The dream of founder Jimmy Lyons became reality in 1958, when the first Monterey Jazz Festival featured artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Louis Armstrong, John Lewis, Sonny Rollins, Gerry Mulligan, Max Roach and Billie Holiday. Monterey Jazz Festival on Tour 55th Anniversary celebrates the festival’s legacy of expanding the boundaries of live jazz presentation. The show reflects Monterey’s “traditional-untraditionalist” attitude, as well as the jazz-with-a-purpose exuberance and joyful fun that continue to be the hallmarks of the Festival to this day.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS DEE DEE BRIDGEWATER, vocals Over the course of a career spanning four decades, Dee Dee Bridgewater has put her unique spin on standards and has taken intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics. Her latest recording,


J A NUA RY 2 0 1 3

Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee, honors Billie Holiday, an iconic jazz figure who died tragically at the age of 44 a half-century ago. “This album is my way of paying my respect to a vocalist who made it possible for singers like me to carve out a career for ourselves,” says Bridgewater, who performed the role of Holiday in the triumphant theatrical production Lady Day, which was staged in Paris and London in 1986 and 1987. Bridgewater has previously paid homage to other monumental figures of the music world, including Ella Fitzgerald, Horace Silver and Kurt Weil, but with Eleanora Fagan, Bridgewater delivers one of the most remarkable recording performances of her career. Instead of playing it safe and recreating her performance in Lady Day, on Eleanora Fagan Bridgewater reacquaints herself with Holiday, shining a new ray of love on the oftenmisunderstood jazz icon. “I wanted the record to be a collection that would not be like the music of the show,” she says. That philosophy is in keeping with Bridgewater’s approach to all of her projects: “I want to move forward, just as I’ve done with each of my albums. To not go backwards, but progress. Constantly.”

CHRIS POTTER, tenor & soprano saxophones A world-class soloist, accomplished composer and formidable bandleader, Chris Potter has emerged as a leading light of his generation. Born in Chicago on Jan.1, 1971 and raised in Columbia, South Carolina, Potter moved to New York to study at the New School and Manhattan School of Music. He burst onto the New York scene in 1989 as an 18-year-old prodigy with bebop icon Red Rodney. Potter’s impressive discography includes 15 albums as a leader, as well as sideman appearances on over 100 albums. He has performed or recorded with many of the leading names in jazz, such as Herbie Hancock, Dave Holland, John Scofield, the Mingus Big Band, Dave Douglas and many others. BENNY GREEN, piano Born in New York in 1963, Benny Green grew up in Berkeley, California, and began classical piano studies at the age of 7. He played in school bands before hooking up with jazz singer Fay Carroll. Green moved to New York in the spring of 1982, and over the years he has worked with Bobby Watson, Betty Carter, Art Blakey, Freddie Hubbard and Ray Brown. Green has recorded seven albums for Blue Note, including Lineage, Greens, Testifiyin’, That’s




AMBROSE AKINMUSIRE, trumpet Born and raised in Oakland, California, Ambrose Akinmusire was a high school student when he caught the attention of saxophonist Steve Coleman, who hired him as a member of his Five Elements band. Akinmusire went on to study at the Manhattan School of Music, the University of Southern California and the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz. In 2007 he won the Thelonious

Monk International Jazz Competition and began performing with the likes of Vijay Iyer and Jason Moran, taking part in Moran’s innovative multimedia concert event In My Mind: Monk at Town Hall, 1957. Los Angeles Times recently named Akinmusire one of their 2011 “Faces to Watch,” and offered this descriptive of a recent L.A. performance: “With a chameleonic tone that can sigh, flutter or soar, Akinmusire sounds less like a rising star than one that was already at great heights and just waiting to be discovered.”


CHRISTIAN MCBRIDE, bass, musical director For his Mack Avenue recording debut, 36-yearold bassist, bandleader, educator and GRAMMY® Award winner Christian McBride delivered the remarkable Kind of Brown. The 10-track album features his new acoustic jazz quintet, Inside Straight, comprised of pianist Eric Reed, alto saxophonist Steve Wilson and drummer Carl Allen, as well as newcomer vibraphonist Warren Wolf. While McBride has helmed a longstanding acoustic/electric quartet with tenor saxophonist Ron Blake, pianist Geoffrey Keezer and drummer Terreon Gully, he decided to create a new quintet that was focused on playing straight-ahead acoustic jazz. In addition to his work as a bandleader, McBride has been active as a sideman, most recently touring with the Chick Corea/John McLaughlin Five Peace Band project, which also featured label mate Kenny Garrett and drummers Vinnie Colaiuta and Brian Blade. He has also been at the forefront of jazz education, serving as an artist in residence at the Detroit International Jazz Festival and the Monterey Jazz Festival; as artistic director at various arts centers and museums, including co-director of the National Jazz Museum in Harlem and the creative jazz chair for the Los Angeles Philharmonic; and as artistic director of the JAS Band Academy (Jazz Aspen Snowmass, Band Edition).


Right!, The Place To Be, Kaleidoscope and These Are Soulful Days. He also recorded Funky for Toshiba and Oscar & Benny with Oscar Peterson for Telarc. A perpetual student of the history of jazz piano, the pianist mentions Erroll Garner, Ahmad Jamal, Phineas Newborn, Bud Powell and Oscar Peterson as some of his main influences.


LEWIS NASH, drums Born December 30, 1958, Lewis Nash grew up in Phoenix, Arizona, where he was encouraged into jazz by his high school band teacher. By the age of 18, Nash was a first-call sideman for visiting musicians to Phoenix, and he received the call to move to New York and join Betty Carter’s band at the age of 22. Since his tenure with Carter he has gone on to record and tour with some of the most highly regarded musicians of all time, including Tommy Flanagan, Oscar Peterson, Sonny Rollins, Horace Silver, Ron Carter, Diana Krall, Joe Williams, Nancy Wilson and many others. Nash has made three recordings as a leader: Rhythm is My Business (1989), It Don’t Mean a Thing (2003) and Stompin’ at the Savoy (2005).

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. He has returned to his native Holland to conduct the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and the Netherlands Broadcast Orchestra. 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.

he 2012/13 season marks Associate Conductor Kelly Corcoran’s sixth season with the Nashville Symphony. During this time, she has conducted a variety of programs, including the Classical and Pops Series, and has served as the primary conductor for the orchestra’s education and community engagement concerts. She made her Carnegie Hall conducting debut in May 2012 with the Nashville Symphony during the Spring For Music Festival. 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, 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 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.

SUPPORT THE ARTS: BOLT THEM TO YOUR CAR! In Tennessee, we’re fortunate to have the Specialty License Plate Program, which provides 70 percent of the funding for the Tennessee Arts Commission. When you purchase one of these license plates for your car, you are directly helping to support the arts! The Nashville Symphony is just one of more than 800 organizations that benefit from the Tennessee Arts Commission’s grant programs, which help to improve the quality of life in cities and rural communities across this great state. If you love the arts, now is the perfect time to pre-order Tennessee’s new arts license plate. Featuring a snazzy, letterpress-inspired design by Nashville graphic designer Leslie Haines, these plates are only $35 each, of which 90 percent will go to the Tennessee Arts Commission!

Before this license plate can go into production, 500 people need to pre-order it before the end of the year. Visit and pre-order yours today! You don’t need to renew your registration because your local County Clerk’s office will pro-rate your annual renewal fee once the plate is available! The Nashville Symphony thanks you for your support of the arts! Arts organizations can’t succeed in their missions without funds from local, state and national government agencies.
