Jeffrey Biegel has created a multi-faceted career as a pianist, composer and arranger.
His electrifying technique and mesmerizing touch has received critical acclaim and garners praise worldwide. Known for his standard-setting performances of the standard repertoire, Mr. Biegel stepped in on short notice in 2009 to perform Tschaikowsky’s Piano Concerto no. 1 with the Orquesta Filarmonica de Bogota in Colombia, with Muhai Tang conducting. His recent recordings include Leroy Anderson’s ‘Concerto in C’, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, ‘Classical Carols’, as well as the Complete Sonatas by Mozart. Richard Danielpour composed a new concerto for Mr. Biegel, which will be premiered with the Pacific Symphony Orchestra in February, 2010, Carl St. Clair conducting. During the 2010/11 season, he premieres William Bolcom’s ‘Prometheus for Piano, Orchestra and Chorus’. Mr. Biegel is currently assembling a global commissioning project for Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s next work for piano and orchestra. Leonard Bernstein said of pianist Jeffrey Biegel: ‘He played fantastic Liszt. He is a splendid musician and a brilliant performer.’ He studied at The Juilliard School with Adele Marcus, herself a pupil of Josef Lhevinne and Artur Schnabel. Until the age of 3, Mr. Biegel was unable to hear nor speak, until corrected by surgery. The ‘reverse Beethoven’ phenomenon can explain Mr. Biegel’s life in music, having heard only vibrations in his formative years.
Mr. Biegel is currently on the piano faculty at the Brooklyn Conservatory of Music at Brooklyn College, at City University of New York (CUNY), and at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York (CUNY). He resides outside New York City with his wife, Sharon, and his sons, Craig and Evan. For more information visit his web site: www.jeffreybiegel.com

Masterworks I: October 2-3, 2010
Toccata and Fugue in D minor, Johann Sebastian Bach
BWV 565 (ca. 1708) Born March 21, 1685 in Eisenach, Germany Died July 28, 1750 in Leipzig
Transcribed for Orchestra (1927) by Leopold Stokowski (18821977) Bach’s magnificent Toccata and Fugue in D minor, written around the time of his appointment as Organist and 18 Chamber Musician at Weimar in 1708, juxtaposes two of Baroque music’s least-related forms. The genre of the toccata was essentially a written-down improvisation whose history traces back to Italy almost two centuries before Bach. The title is one of those slippery 17th-century terms whose meaning is often elusive, but seems to have come from the Italian word “toccare” — “to touch.” The toccata indicated a “touching” with the fingers on the keyboard to create great roulades of sound — sweeping scales, colossal harmonic progressions, dazzling figurations and so forth — usually presented as unconnected episodes. The fugue, on the other hand, is music’s most tightly integrated structure, growing from a single theme that threads through each of the voices and dominates the seamless piece from beginning to end. Bach brought to this marriage of musical antitheses a flying virtuosity (this work is probably similar to the test pieces he used when trying out new organs) and an unerring sense of impassioned drama. Leopold Stokowski transcribed some three dozen of Bach’s works for large orchestra. Among the first and most famous of this group was the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, dating from 1927. The London-born Stokowski first came to public notice as an organist, when he was appointed to the position at St. James’s Church, Piccadilly at the age of nineteen, in 1902. The D minor Toccata and Fugue was his favorite showpiece, and parishioners still recalled his performances a half-century later. His love of Bach’s works continued after he became conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1912, and his transcriptions were an important way in which he shared this wonderful music with his audiences. His arrangements created
a wide interest in these largely unknown compositions. (The Toccata and Fugue was the first piece of music Stokowski and Walt Disney chose for the film Fantasia.) Stokowski wrote of the Toccata and Fugue in D minor, “It has a power and majestic intensity that is cosmic in scope. One of its main characteristics is immense freedom of rhythm and plasticity of melodic outline. In the sequence of harmonies, it is bold and path breaking. Its tonal architecture is irregular and asymmetric. Of all the creations of Bach, it is one of the most original. Its inspiration flows unendingly. In spirit it is universal, so that it will always be contemporary and have a direct message for all men.”
Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Frédéric Chopin
Brillante in E-flat major, Op. 22 Born February 22, 1810 (1831, 1834) in Zelazowa-Wola, Poland. Died October 17, 1849 in Paris.
The Andante Spianato and Grande Polonaise Brillante is a joining of two separate works. The Polonaise dates from 1830-1831, when Chopin had just left his native Poland to make his fame and fortune as a touring virtuoso pianist. At that time, concert conventions demanded that the 19 soloist perform both alone and with the orchestras in the cities he visited. He was expected to provide a work of his own composition, and this Polonaise with orchestral accompaniment was written to fill that need, as were both of his concertos. In 1834, he added the Andante Spianato as an extensive introduction for piano solo to the Polonaise, and premiered the entire work at a benefit concert at the Paris Conservatoire on April 26, 1835. Despite the success of his performances, Chopin confided to his friend Franz Liszt, “I am not fit for public concerts. Crowds intimidate me. I feel poisoned by their breath, paralyzed by curious glances, and confused by the sight of strange faces.” The 1835 concert was Chopin’s penultimate public appearance. After it, he withdrew to the intimate ambiance of the salon, appearing only one more time outside the privacy of an aristocratic home — when he played a duet with Liszt as part of the latter’s Parisian “farewell” concert on April 9, 1836. “Spianato” in Italian means “level” or “smooth.” The Andante Spianato is music of lovely, halcyon character in Chopin’s inimitable mature style, marked by harmonic sophistication and rich figuration. Of this section, James Huneker wrote, “It is a charming, liquid-toned, nocturnelike composition, Chopin in his most suave, most placid mood: [it is] a barcarolle, [in which] scarcely a ripple of emotions disturbs the mirrored calm of this lake.” The Andante spianato is linked to the Polonaise by a fanfare from the horns and a brief orchestral transition. The music of the Polonaise, the first of the work’s two sections to be composed, is in the virtuoso, bravura style that characterizes Chopin’s early works immediately after he left Poland. This is music of pronounced nationalistic spirit, filled with flashing filigree and buoyant spirits.
Piano Concerto No. 1 (1977) Keith Emerson
Born November 2, 1944 in Todmorden, West Yorkshire, England
English keyboardist and composer Keith Emerson, born in 1944 in the West Yorkshire town of Todmorden, started playing piano by ear at age four but his formal training in music was confined to the few years of private lessons he began at eight. By fourteen, Emerson was playing in dance halls and accompanying at his aunt’s ballet studio. He soon moved to London and toured Europe backing T-Bone Walker, a time when he also immersed himself in the music of such jazz greats as Fats Waller and Oscar Peterson and such classical composers as Bach, Copland, Rachmaninoff, Bartók and Ginastera. In his twenties, Emerson formed a band called The Nice, which played a unique fusion of jazz, blues, classical and rock that pioneered the use of electronic keyboards. Some of The Nice’s recordings were adaptations of classical music, and in 1968 Emerson was commissioned by the Newcastle City Arts Council to write a composition for rock band and orchestra that was released as The Five Bridges Suite. In 1970, Emerson dissolved The Nice and formed the now-legendary Emerson, Lake & Palmer with singer, songwriter, bassist and guitarist Greg Lake and drummer Carl Palmer, which achieved instant fame with a live rock version of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition 20 at their Isle of Wight Festival debut. ELP released five albums within four years, all of which went platinum. In 1979, ELP disbanded, and two years later Emerson released his first solo LP, Honky, which he recorded with backup musicians from the Bahamas. Between 1980 and 1989, he composed for films, including music for Nighthawks (starring Sylvester Stallone and Billy Dee Williams), the Japanese animated Harmegedon (whose recording went gold), The Best Revenge, Inferno, Murderock and The Church. Emerson, Lake & Palmer regrouped, toured and recorded for several stretches during the 1980s and 1990s, an activity that culminated in 1992 with the release of Black Moon, their first world-wide tour in thirteen years, and the broadcast and video Emerson, Lake & Palmer Live at the Albert Hall. In the 1990s, Emerson composed for the Iron Man TV cartoon series and released The Christmas Album. Widely regarded as the most technically accomplished keyboardist in rock history, Emerson has frequently won the Overall Best Keyboardist award in the annual Keyboard Magazine readers’ poll and has been honored by the Smithsonian Institution for his pioneering work in electronic music. After their triumphant 1974 international tour, Emerson, Lake & Palmer agreed to take sometime off to rest and pursue their individual creative interests. To mark the band’s return in 1977, they decided to record an ambitious two-LP set — Works, Vol. 1 — in which the first three sides would be devoted to solo pieces created and performed by each musician and the fourth to new works by the ELP band, one of which was their rock interpretation of Aaron
Copland’s Fanfare for the Common Man. Emerson’s contribution to the set was his Piano Concerto No. 1, which he recorded early in 1977 with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and conductor John Mayer (who collaborated with Emerson on the work’s orchestration). Of it, the composer wrote, “The Piano Concerto No. 1 was born out of a series of variations inspired by the English countryside, particularly the home I had at that time, which was grand early Tudor and formerly owned by Sir James Barrie (author of Peter Pan). An annex to the main house presented a huge barn studio, where my nine-foot Steinway concert grand awaited, always demanding an attention I could not resist. The piano’s sonorities would ring out, inspiring me while attracting wild birds to nest in the beams. I incorporated many techniques into the Concerto, such as a twelve-tone scale with Baroque ideas in fugal style. Presented in traditional form, the work tells a story of nature’s cycle — its joy, its destruction, and, in the block chords of the third movement, its optimistic triumph.”
Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78, “Organ” (1886) Camille Saint-Saëns
Born October 9, 1835 in Paris. Died December 16, 1921 in Algiers. The Paris in which Saint-Saëns grew up, studied and lived 21 was enamored of the vacuous stage works of Meyerbeer, Offenbach and a host of lesser lights in which little attention was given to artistic merit, only to convention and entertainment. Berlioz tried to break this stranglehold of mediocrity, and he earned for himself a reputation as an eccentric, albeit a talented one, whose works were thought unperformable, and probably best left to the pedantic Germans anyway. Saint-Saëns, with his love of Palestrina, Rameau, Beethoven, Liszt and, above all, Mozart, also determined not to be enticed into the Opéra Comique but to follow his calling toward a more noble art. To this end, he established with some like-minded colleagues the Société Nationale de Musique in 1871 to perform the serious concert works of French composers. The venture was a success, and it did much to give a renewed sense of artistic purpose to the best Gallic musicians. Saint-Saëns produced a great deal of music to promote the ideals of the Société Nationale de Musique, including ten concertos and various smaller works for solo instruments and orchestra, four tone poems, two orchestral suites and five symphonies, the second and third of which were unpublished for decades and discounted in the usual numbering of these works. The last of the symphonies, No. 3 in C minor, is his masterwork in the genre. SaintSaëns pondered the work for a long time, and realized it with great care. “I have given in this Symphony,” he confessed, “everything that I could give.” Of the work’s construction, Saint-Saëns wrote, “This Symphony is divided into two parts,
though it includes practically the traditional four movements. The first, checked in development, serves as an introduction to the Adagio. In the same manner, the scherzo is connected with the finale.” Saint-Saëns clarified the division of the two parts by using the organ only in the second half of each: dark and rich in Part I, noble and uplifting in Part II. The entire work is unified by transformations of the main theme, heard in the strings at the beginning after a brief and mysterious introduction. In his “Organ” Symphony, Saint-Saëns combined the techniques of thematic transformation, elision of movements and richness of orchestration with a clarity of thought and grandeur of vision to create one of the masterpieces of French symphonic music. ©2010 Dr. Richard E.

Masterworks II: November 13-14, 2010
Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major, D. 485 (1816) Franz Schubert
Born January 31, 1797 in Vienna Died there on November 19, 1828 Schubert kept a perfunctory diary for a few months during 1816. Among the scraps of home-spun philosophy (“Man resembles a ball, to be played with by chance and passion.” “Happier he who finds a true man-friend. Happier still he 30 who finds a true friend in his wife”) is an entry for June 17th: “Today I composed for money for the first time. Namely, a cantata for the name-day of Professor Watteroth. The fee is 100 florins.” Schubert, age nineteen, had metamorphosed into a professional composer. At least he thought that there was sufficient reason at the time to leave his irksome teaching post at his father’s school in order to live the life of an artist. Thus began the bohemian existence of his last dozen years — living by the gladly proffered aid of friends, daily climbing up to Grinzing to haunt the cafés, avoiding society for dislike of buying and wearing good clothes. And music, always music. He composed incessantly. Out of bed shortly after dawn (sometimes he slept with his glasses on so as not to waste any time getting started in the morning), pouring out music until early afternoon, then off to who-knows-where for a bit too much Heuriger wine and a few pipes of cheap tobacco. Compositions filled his head all the while, sometimes scratched out on napkins or envelopes if they could not wait until the next morning. Evenings were spent making music. His devoted band of friends were delighted to sing and play what he wrote. Franz von Hartmann recorded of one of these Schubertiads, “There was a huge gathering [including] Gahy, who played four-hand piano music gloriously with Schubert, and Vogl, who sang almost thirty splendid songs.... When the music was over there was grand feeding and dancing. At 12:30 [we went] home. To bed at 1 o’clock.”
Supplementing the songs and piano works for these Schubertiads was a growing collection of orchestral pieces composed for other amateur musical soirées. A family string quartet, comprising his brothers Ferdinand and Ignaz on violins, his father on cello and Franz on viola, attracted other players and soon evolved into a small orchestra. They rehearsed at first in the Schubert household, but as the membership grew new quarters had to be found for their activities, and they moved in 1816 to the apartments of Leopold von Sonnleithner. It was for one of those informal evenings that Schubert composed the sparkling B-flat Symphony.
The Symphony opens with a delicate curtain of woodwind harmonies. The violins present the main theme, a gracious melody built on the notes of the common chords. A shadow passes quickly over the music (technically, a brief excursion into the minor key — an expressive device Schubert learned from Mozart) before the main theme is repeated and extended (more shadows) as transition to the second theme. The compact development begins with a decorated version of the opening woodwind harmonies; a discussion of the decorating figure ensues. The main theme is recapitulated not in the tonic key of B-flat, but in the brighter tonality of E-flat. This bit of harmonic legerdemain allows the second theme to reappear in the “proper” key of B-flat with virtually no alteration of the music from the exposition. A brief, lively coda brings this buoyant movement to a close. The lovely Andante not only breathes the sweet Mozartian air, but may even derive its melodic inspiration from that composer’s Violin Sonata in F, K. 377. The movement is built on two extended themes: the first (in E-flat) is given immediately by the strings; the second (in C-flat) is also played by the strings, with obbligato phrases from the oboe and bassoon. Eschewing a development, the second half of the movement is simply a restatement of the two themes. Though the third movement (G minor) is marked “Menuetto,” in tempo and temperament it is truly a scherzo. The bucolic central trio, in which the bassoon figures prominently, is in G major. The closing movement recalls the vibrant finales of Haydn in its clear melodic structure, rhythmic vivacity and witty use of dynamics.
Concierto de Aranjuez for Guitar and Orchestra (1939) Joaquín Rodrigo Born on November 22, 1901 in Sagunto, Valencia Died on July 6, 1999 in Madrid
The small town of Aranjuez, thirty miles south of Madrid on the River Tagus, is a green oasis in the barren plateau of central Spain. In the mid-18th century, a palace,
set amid verdant forests and parks, was built at Aranjuez as a summer retreat for the Spanish court. Generations of Spanish kings thereafter settled into Aranjuez every spring, when the countless nightingales would serenade them from the cedars and laurels, the court ladies would promenade in the cooling shade, and the men would hone their equestrian skills with the famous cream-colored Andalusian horses bred nearby. When Rodrigo sought inspiration for a new concerto in the difficult, war-torn year of 1939, it was to the elegant symbol of by-gone Spain represented by Aranjuez that he turned. “Having conceived the idea of a guitar concerto,” he recalled, “it was necessary for me to place it in a certain epoch and, still more, in a definite location — an epoch at the end of which fandangos transform themselves into fandanguillos, and when the cante and the bulerias vibrate in the Spanish air.” He further stated that he had in mind the early decades of the 19th century when composing this Concierto de Aranjuez. Of the work’s mood and the character of its solo instrument, the composer wrote, “Through the veins of Spanish music, a profound rhythmic beat seems to be diffused by a strange phantasmagoric, colossal and multiform instrument — an instrument idealized in the fiery imagination of Albéniz, Granados, Falla and Turina. It is an imaginary instrument that might be said to possess the wings of the harp, the heart of the grand piano and the soul of 32 the guitar.... It would be unjust to expect strong sonorities from this Concierto; they would falsify its essence and distort an instrument made for subtle ambiguities. Its strength is to be found in its very lightness and in the intensity of its contrasts. The Aranjuez Concierto is meant to sound like the hidden breeze that stirs the tree tops in the parks, as dainty as a veronica.” In his Concierto de Aranjuez, Rodrigo adapted the three traditional movements of the concerto form to reflect different aspects of the soul of Spanish music — the outer movements are fast in tempo and dance-like, while the middle one is imbued with the bittersweet intensity of classic flamenco cante hondo (“deep song”). The soloist opens the Concierto with an evocative, typically Spanish rhythmic pattern of ambiguous meter that courses throughout the movement. The orchestra, in colorful fiesta garb, soon enters while the guitar’s brilliant, virtuoso display continues. The haunting Adagio, among the most beautiful and beloved pieces ever written for guitar, is based on a theme of Middle Eastern ancestry, given in the plangent tones of the English horn, around which the soloist weaves delicate arabesques as the music unfolds. The finale’s lilting simplicity (one commentator noted its similarity to a Spanish children’s song) serves as a foil to the imposing technical demands for the soloist, who is required to negotiate almost the entire range of the instrument’s possibilities.
Symphony No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 82 (1915) Jean Sibelius
Born December 8, 1865 in Hämeenlinna, Finland Died September 20, 1957 in Järvenpää, Finland
For the three years after he issued his brooding Fourth Symphony in 1911, Sibelius was largely concerned with writing program music: The Dryad, Scènes historiques, The Bard, The Océanides, Rakastava. He even considered composing a ballet titled King Fjalar at that time, but rejected the idea. As early as 1912, he envisioned a successor to the Fourth Symphony but did not have any concrete ideas for the work until shortly before he left for a visit to the United States in May 1914 to conduct some of his compositions at the Norfolk (Connecticut) Music Festival. (The Océanides was commissioned for the occasion.) He returned to Finland in July; war erupted on the Continent the next month. In September, he described his mood over the terrifying political events as emotionally “in a deep dale,” but added, “I already begin to see dimly the mountain I shall certainly ascend.... God opens the door for a moment and His orchestra plays the Fifth Symphony.” He could not begin work on the piece immediately, however. 33 One of his main sources of income — performance royalties from his German publisher, Breitkopf und Härtel — was severely diminished because of the war-time turmoil, and he was forced to churn out a stream of songs and piano miniatures and to undertake tours to Gothenburg, Oslo and Bergen to pay the household bills. Early in 1915, Sibelius learned that a national celebration was planned for his fiftieth birthday (December 8th), and that the government was commissioning from him a new symphony for the festive concert in Helsinki. He withdrew into the isolation of his country home at Järvenpää, devoted himself to the gestating work, and admitted to his diary, “I love this life so infinitely, and feel that it must stamp everything that I compose.” He had to rush to finish the work for the concert in December, even making changes in the parts during the final rehearsal, but the Symphony was presented as the centerpiece of the tribute to the man the program described as “Finland’s greatest son.” Sibelius’ birthday was a virtual national holiday, and he was lionized with speeches, telegrams, banquets, greetings and gifts; the Fifth Symphony, conducted by the composer’s friend and artistic champion Robert Kajanus, met with great acclaim. The concert was given three additional times during the following weeks. Theorists have long debated whether Sibelius’ Fifth Symphony is in three or four movements; even the composer himself left contradictory evidence on the matter. The contention centers on the first two sections, a broad essay in leisurely tempo
and a spirited scherzo, played without pause and related thematically. The opening portion is in a sort of truncated sonata form, though it is of less interest to discern its structural divisions than to follow the long arches of musical tension and release that Sibelius built through manipulation of the fragmentary, germinal theme presented at the beginning by the horns. The scherzo grows seamlessly from the music of the first section. At first dance-like and even playful, it accumulates dynamic energy as it unfolds, ending with a whirling torrent of sound. The following Andante, formally a theme and variations, is predominantly tranquil in mood, though punctuated by several piquant jabs of dissonance. “There are frequent moments in the music of Sibelius,” wrote Charles O’Connell of the Symphony’s finale, “when one hears almost inevitably the beat and whir of wings invisible, and this strange and characteristic effect almost always presages something magnificently portentous. We have it here.” The second theme is a bell-tone motive led by the horns that serves as background to the woodwinds’ long melodic lines. The whirring theme returns, after which the bell motive is treated in ostinato fashion, repeated over and over, building toward a climax until it seems about to burst from its own excitement — which it does. The forward motion abruptly stops, and the work ends with six stentorian chords, separated by silence, proclaimed by the full orchestra. ©2010 Dr. Richard E. Rodda

The Complete Bartok String Quartets
performed by the Calder Quartet Fri, April 8 & Sat, April 9, 2011
Four players bursting at the seams one moment, and the next whispering with the rapture of the blest. Bela Bartók’s six string quartets indeed cast an unparalleled emotional net. Fortunately, we’ve secured the services of LA’s finest, the Calder String Quartet. When it comes to playing Bartók’s hyper-expressive, hyper-demanding masterworks, they’re absolutely perfect. Dinner and a Concert! Join us in the gallery adjacent to the hall for a scrumptious dinner buffet before each concert. Fantastic acoustics! Free Parking!
