From the Mayor To the OSO Audience: Welcome to the Oakville Symphony’s 2013-2014 Season! We are very fortunate to have one of the finest community orchestras in Canada; this is abundantly clear in the quality of the performance every time the symphony takes the stage. This season’s focus on Oakville, both in terms of the talented musicians delivering the music and the pieces they’ve chosen, is a real tribute to our community’s musical and artistic strength. I look forward to the season ahead and encourage everyone, lifelong patrons and those who’ve never been, to come out and Come Home To The Symphony. On that note, I would like to extend very best wishes to all – maestro, musicians and audience – for a most successful and inspiring season. Happy listening, Mayor Rob Burton

From the Chair Welcome to the Oakville Symphony’s 46th season! Our success amply demonstrates that we are one of Canada’s top community orchestras. We have had so many years of performing great symphonic music due to the dedication of our volunteer musicians, the leadership of our professional musicians, the talent of our maestro and the enthusiasm of our audiences. Add in the support of our corporate partners and government grants, along with the direction of our tireless staff and board members, and you have the winning formula! A community orchestra is, by definition, made up of volunteer musicians who come from the community. The reality is that the Oakville Symphony does so much more than just play our four major concerts. When a group of talented musicians get together, great things happen: • Our Community Outreach Committee, started by some of our musicians, identifies opportunities to bring classical music to children through the Family Christmas Concerts, the Young People’s Concert, free MiniConcerts, and the Meet the Musician program that brings a musician into local schools. • Our professional and volunteer musicians play together in duets, trios and quartets, and are available for hire by contacting the Oakville Symphony. • Our Music Director hosts post concert chats and the nOt juSt the scOre lecture series. • Former Young Artists and members of the Oakville Symphony have gone on to successful careers in music. We are able to be creative and active in the larger community with the ongoing support of our sold-out by subscription audiences and our generous Friends. Thank you for being part of our community. Enjoy the season! Gillian Santangeli, Chair The Oakville Symphony Gillian Santangeli has been a member of the Board of the OSO since 2007. Many years ago, she was a member of the percussion section of the OSO. Gillian and her husband David have been raising their three sons in Oakville for the last 15 years and are both active volunteers in the community.

Program Notes HECTOR BERLIOZ (1803 – 1869) Roman Carnival Overture, Op. 9 Berlioz originally wrote this overture as a prelude for his opera Benvenuto Cellini, but he later expanded it into a free-standing orchestral work. It begins with a furious saltarello, a 16th century Roman dance, which hints at the carnival to come. However, a love duet quickly intervenes (as an English horn solo), which is subsequently taken up by the strings and echoed by the bassoons. The insistent carnival music gradually returns, while the love duet temporarily plays along in blissful ignorance of the surrounding tumult. However, the love theme is eventually overwhelmed by the force of the carnival music in the full orchestra.
JOHANN NEPOMUK HUMMEL (1778 -1837) Trumpet Concerto in E-flat I: Allegro con spirito II: Andante
Hummel was one of the most influential performers and composers of his day. He knew and worked with many other famous men, including Mozart, with whom he lived for two years while taking piano lessons. Later he associated with Haydn, Salieri, and Goethe, and he was a fellow piano student with Beethoven. Hummel was a distinguished concert pianist, playing throughout Europe from a very early age. He taught piano technique to Czerny (he of the dreaded exercises known to all aspiring students!) and Mendelssohn, and was also an accomplished guitarist. Hummel wrote no symphonies, but created a diversity of piano music, chamber works, concertos, operas, and church masses. He was also an early proponent of musicians’ pensions and anti-piracy copyright of musical scores. Hummel’s concerto was written for Anton Weidinger in the Vienna Court Opera. Following in Haydn’s footsteps, the music was created to take advantage of capabilities of Weidinger’s newly designed trumpet. Unlike earlier “natural” trumpets, Weidinger’s instrument had holes covered by pads (like today’s woodwinds), and this permitted the playing of many notes that were previously impossible. Right from the start, the music includes unusual modulations to showcase the scope of the new “keyed” instrument. There is a variety of martial sections (with fanfare flourishes) and lyrical development (particularly in the Andante). Virtuosity comes to the fore in the fast-paced Rondo finale. The keyed trumpet was made redundant by the valves and pistons of the modern instrument. After his death, Hummel’s music was also largely eclipsed by the start of the Romantic period, but recent revivals have brought some of his work (notably this concerto) back into the contemporary repertoire.

OTTORINO RESPHIGI (1879 – 1936) Symphonic Poem, The Fountains of Rome I: The Fountain of Valle Giulia at dawn II: The Triton Fountain in the morning III: The Trevi Fountain at midday IV: The Villa Medici Fountain at sunset In the late 19th century, Italian music was dominated by opera, and it fell largely to Resphigi to restore the nation’s reputation for orchestral composition. Resphigi trained as a violinist, and then worked for a time in a St. Petersburg orchestra, while taking composition lessons from Rimsky-Korsakov. He later studied with Max Bruch in Berlin. After a period as a virtuoso violinist, he returned to Italy as the professor of composition in Rome. The Fountains of Rome was his first major success (in 1916), to be followed by the Pines of Rome (1924) and Roman Festivals (1929). The four movements of Fountains are played without a pause, as Resphigi portrays each of the fountains at the time of day most in character with its setting. Proceeding from dawn to sunset, we pass from a quiet dawn, through the energy of midday, and eventually return to tranquillity in the evening. In the opening Valle Giulia the mood is pastoral, and Resphigi indicates cattle “passing and disappearing in the fresh, damp mists of a Roman dawn”. A loud horn call over trills in the orchestra announces our arrival at Triton, with dancing in the woodwinds, harp and strings. As Resphigi explains, “Naiads and Tritons come running up… between the jets of water”. As tourists who have thrown their “three coins” into the Trevi fountain may recall, it is dominated by a statue of Neptune in a chariot drawn by sea horses. Resphigi initiates Trevi by a “solemn theme, borne on the undulations of the orchestra”. The theme becomes triumphant as it passes from the woodwinds to the brass. Neptune’s procession passes, the climax recedes, and the section ends with distant horn and trumpet calls. The final section, Medici, is set at sunset with a melody for flute and English horn. Bells toll, birds twitter, and leaves rustle. The entire work ends as “all dies peacefully into the silence of the night”.
JOHANNES BRAHMS (1833 – 1897) Academic Festival Overture, Op. 80 This piece was commissioned by the University of Breslau, from whom Brahms would receive an honorary Ph.D. in 1881. After some procrastination, Brahms hurriedly wrote a piece that combines academic solemnity with an unexpected festival atmosphere. The traditional “Academic” component is briefly acknowledged by a stately introduction. However, the “Festival” aspect soon takes over as the mood becomes more light-hearted, with adaptations of four student songs. A strident climax is finally reached with the famous Gaudeamus igitur. Contemporary accounts of the graduation day reveal that the students joined in with their own irreverent words, much to the consternation of the assembled dignitaries. © Notes by STEPHEN WALTER

It is available to string players and non-string players in alternate years. The winner receives a bursary of $500. This award does not include a commitment to play with the orchestra, other than the possibility of a solo under mutually agreeable circumstances. DEVELOPING ARTIST AWARDS These awards were introduced to recognize the talents of some of the younger competitors for the Kenneth Hollier Award. They are given at the discretion of the judges on a “deserving” basis. THE YOUSSEF-WARREN VIOLIN The Oakville-based Youssef-Warren Foundation donated a quality violin, to be loaned to a young violinist, playing with the OSO. The violin, made in 1993 by Romano Gaini a master violinmaker from Ferrara, Italy and is appraised at $14,000. Ian Morrison, violinist with the OSO, has donated a “Handorff” bow in the value of $1000 to accompany the violin when it is borrowed. The recipient of the violin and bow for the 2013-2014 season is Reade Snair. THE HOLLIER VIOLA The Oakville Symphony Orchestra is very grateful to Dorothy Hollier-Bidlake, widow of the founder of the Symphony, Kenneth Hollier, for her donation in his honour of his A.G.Galea viola, as well as his Laberte viola bow and viola case. The appraised value of this gift is $24,000. For more information about all youth awards, please call the Oakville Symphony office.
