EDUCATION GUIDE 2019-2020 SEASON


Mission. The mission of the Lexington Philharmonic is to foster excellence and innovation in the performance and presentation of great music; to enrich the lives of our diverse citizenry; to educate current and future audiences; and to bring distinction to our community through the orchestra’s presence and standing. We Are Visionaries. Music illuminates the many ways in which humankind’s past is linked to its future. It provides creative energy to address a wide-range of social challenges. LexPhil is committed to serving its core values: artistic excellence, innovation, collaboration and accessibility in the context of contemporary society. We want to see Lexington maximize its potential as a leading regional creative center. “Music can play a powerful role to invigorate the cultural landscape. I want LexPhil to be known for its contribution to making Lexington a forward-looking and innovative community.” The Late Ronald Saykaly, M.D.

We Are Engaged. LexPhil is building a culture of artistic curiosity by educating the broadest possible audience about the beauty and breadth of the orchestral genre. LexPhil collaborates with over 50 local arts and non-arts organizations, schools, colleges and universities each year, to present a wide-variety of artistic and educational programs. LexPhil’s music education programs reach over 10,000 students of all ages and backgrounds throughout central and eastern Kentucky. “The most valued aspect of our partnership with the Lexington Philharmonic is how the musicians and Music Builds Discovery concert underscore the same concepts that we discuss and practice in the classroom. It is so helpful for the students to hear these ideas from someone other than me. I sincerely hope to have LexPhil’s influence in our school for many years to come.” - Andrea Marcum, Music Teacher, Arlington Elementary

Meet The ARTISTS __________________________________________________________________________________________________ Akiko Fujimoto is a finalist for the Music Director & Conductor of the Lexington Philharmonic. Akiko is the Associate Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra, where she has conducted education, community and Sommerfest concerts and will make her subscription debut in March 2020. She is also the newly appointed Music Director of the Mid-Texas Symphony, beginning September 2019. As a guest conductor, Fujimoto has performed with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, North Carolina Symphony, Houston Symphony, San Antonio Symphony, Corpus Christi Symphony and the Fort Wayne Philharmonic. She has also conducted the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra at St. Magnus Festival and Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra as a participant in the Young Conductors Programme. During the 2019-20 season, Fujimoto makes her debuts with the Lexington Philharmonic, Florida Orchestra and Portland Symphony Orchestra. Prior to arriving in Minnesota, Fujimoto served as the Associate Conductor of the San Antonio Symphony for five seasons, where highlights included conducting a gala featuring Gil Shaham in Brahms’ Violin Concerto and fully staged ballet productions of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Tchaikovsky’s Swan Lake and The Nutcracker. Previously, she also served as the conducting associate for the Virginia Symphony. A strong advocate for young musicians, Fujimoto held positions both at Harvard University where she directed the Mozart Society Orchestra and at Stanford University where she served as the interim music director of the Stanford Symphony Orchestra. While in Virginia, she also served as Director of Orchestras at the College of William & Mary and music director of the Williamsburg Youth Orchestras. Born in Japan, Fujimoto moved to the United States at age 14. She attended Stanford University where she studied music and psychology and holds master’s degrees in conducting from the Eastman School of Music and Boston University. Additionally, Fujimoto was cover conductor for Esa-Pekka Salonen, Zubin Mehta and Susanna Mälkki at the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Allegra Lilly joined the St. Louis Symphony as Principal Harp in 2013. She has appeared as Guest Principal Harp with the Chicago, Houston, Toronto and Charlotte symphonies, Boston Pops, and St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and has also performed with the New York Philharmonic, Pittsburgh Symphony, and All-Star Orchestra. A frequent substitute with the Boston Symphony, she acted as Guest Principal Harp for the BSO’s 2015 Tanglewood season and European tour, and she has earned the unique distinction of appearing as Principal Harp on back-to-back albums that won the GRAMMY Award for Best Orchestral Performance: the SLSO’s City Noir in 2015 and the BSO’s Shostakovich: Under Stalin’s Shadow in 2016. Since making her solo debut at the age of twelve with the Detroit Symphony, Lilly has appeared as soloist with the St. Louis Symphony, Juilliard Orchestra, National Repertory Orchestra, and numerous ensembles in New York and in her home state of Michigan. She has also taken prizes at the Concours International de Harpe in Nice, the American Harp Society’s Anne Adams Awards, and the American String Teachers Association National Solo Competition. In addition to holding the harp faculty position at Brevard Music Center, Lilly has given masterclasses at Northwestern University, Tanglewood Music Center, Boston University, and the University of Ottawa. Born in Detroit, Lilly began her own study of the harp with Ruth Myers at age seven. She went on to join the studio of New York Philharmonic Principal Harpist Nancy Allen at The Juilliard School, where she earned Bachelor and Master of Music degrees.

PROGRAM NOTES Notes by Daniel Chetel DEEP SUMMER MUSIC LIBBY LARSEN American composer Libby Larsen was born in 1950 in Wilmington, Delaware but moved to Minnesota, where she earned three degrees from the University of Minnesota, co-founded the Minnesota Composers Forum (now the American Composers Forum), and served as composer-in-residence of the Minnesota Orchestra. Deep Summer Music centers our musical imaginations on the panorama of colorful richness that pervades the horizon at harvest time in the western plains. Larsen writes in her note about this work: “In the deep summer, winds create wave after wave of harvest ripeness which, when beheld by the human eye, creates a kind of emotional peace and awe.” While not necessarily referenced musically, it is difficult not to hear an allusion to Katharine Bates’s line “amber waves of grain,” set to music in the song we now know as America, the Beautiful. Larsen’s music is pulsating and atmospheric, drawing on minimalist American traditions combined with an evocative pictorial sweep. The texture of the music is characterized by the percussion and strings that construct this foundation. Listen for the poignant solo trumpet, that seems to be an avatar for us as the listener, considering the vastness of this abundant vista. HARP CONCERTO, OP. 25 GINASTERA Alberto Ginastera—born in 1916 in Buenos Aires, Argentina—was also a composer of geographically and culturally specific music that often highlighted his own Argentinian musical heritage. This is heard most famously in his 1941 score to the ballet Estancia which depicted the lives of cowboys from his home country and featured specific Argentinian dance forms, including the energetic malambo. Ginastera continually engaged with the question of how to use the Latin American tradition within the context of an increasingly modern musical language that he was developing through his travels and studies in the United States and Europe. The Harp Concerto, Op. 25 was premiered in 1965, well into Ginastera’s self-proclaimed third musical period which he referred to as “neo-expressionism." This trajectory represents a move away from writing music specifically inspired by his Argentinian upbringing and toward a more wide-ranging musical vocabulary.

In this virtuosic concerto we can hear a modern and experimental musical language at play (including extensive use of wispy string harmonics, crunchy dissonances of harmony, and even some nontraditional sounds made by the harpist), but the overall character is deeply rooted in the rhythmic and percussive traditions that we associate with Ginastera’s earlier music. The concerto was commissioned by Edna Phillips, the harpist of the Philadelphia Orchestra and premiered under the baton of Eugene Ormandy with Spanish superstar harpist Nicanor Zabaleta performing the solo. SYMPHONY NO. 7 IN A MAJOR BEETHOVEN Ludwig van Beethoven’s musical career is also generally divided into three periods. Beethoven conducted the premiere of Symphony No. 7 in A Major in Vienna in December 1813 on an evening of music presented to raise funds for injured soldiers. The Symphony No. 7 includes musical homages to military tropes and imagery within the structure of a classical symphonic form. Unlike Larsen’s atmospheric invocation of the American plains, Beethoven’s patriotic message is somewhat less subtle, highlighted by the heroic French horns and gleaming strings. The opening Poco sostenuto, unlike simpler introductions that we might expect from classical examples (or even earlier Beethoven symphonies), travels through a wide array of emotional states rather than simply functioning as a formal setting of the stage. The second movement Allegretto is one of Beethoven’s most well known symphonic movements. Beethoven propels his quickmoving Scherzo into motion with notable interplay between triple and duple meters that create an off-kilter hemiola effect. The middle Trio section returns to the pastoral ambience of the opening movement with spacious harmonies in the woodwinds and brass that conjure images of the forests surrounding courtly Viennese estates. The sparkling passagework of the Allegro con brio sets off into a joyful finale with a return to the lilting dotted rhythms of the very opening. The composer’s exuberance leads to some of Beethoven’s most extreme musical direction—multiple fortississimo markings—in the coda which propel the orchestra to spring its way towards the end of this dynamic symphony. 6

Harp Concerto Lesson Teachers, please feel free to use the information in this lesson to help prepare your students for the performance at the Discovery Concert on 10/24/19!

What is a Harp? A harp is a stringed instrument that has many individual strings attached to a soundboard. The strings are plucked by the harpist’s fingers. Orchestral harps have pedals at the base for the harpist to change the notes of the strings. We talk about orchestral instruments in different ways: by the families they play in, and by how the instrument actually makes sound. o

Instrument Families • • • •

o

Strings Includes violins, violas, cellos, basses, and harp Woodwinds Includes flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, and saxophone Brass Includes trumpet, trombone, French horn, and tuba Percussion Includes timpani, xylophone, crash cymbals, and drums

Instrument Sound Production Classifications •

• • •

Chordophones Creates sound with vibrating strings Violins, violas, cellos, basses, harp Guitar, lute, ukulele Idiophones Creates sound by instrument vibrating (with no air, string, or membrane) Xylophone, crash cymbals, bells Membranophones Creates sound by membrane vibrating Drums, timpani, some tambourines Aerophones Creates sound by vibrating a column of air All orchestral woodwind and brass Harmonica, pipe organ, recorder

What is a Concerto? A concerto has three components for its definition: • • •

A musical composition Features a soloist Accompanied by an orchestra or band

A concerto frequently has an extended solo, called a cadenza. These are usually improvisatory (sounding spontaneous, though usually not actually improvised) and virtuosic (displaying exceptional skill) in nature.

What is special about the Ginastera Harp Concerto? • • • •

Alberto Ginastera (heen-ah-stare-ah) (1916-1983) was a composer from Argentina This concerto is one of only 8 or so well-known concertos for harp Edna Phillips, longtime harpist for the Philadelphia Orchestra, commissioned this work in the 1950’s. We will hear part of this concerto at the Discovery Concert on October 24th! 9


Activity 1: Draw or color the sounds you imagine coming from the harp as your teacher plays a recording of harp music.

Activity 2: As a group, create one 3-foot “harp string� to bring to the Discovery Concert and display along with other schools on our cardboard harp frame. Use any materials (ribbon, yarn, twine, beads, flowers) to represent your school in our celebratory collaborative art piece! 10

STEM TO STEAM __________________________________________________________________________

The Lexington Philharmonic unveiled its Music Builds STEAM platform during its 2014-2015 season. This platform is based on the STEM to STEAM movement, which is devoted to broadening the basic curriculum standards for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math by adding the Arts. This educational initiative includes the Arts as a tool to strengthen the critical thinking skills needed for students to excel in all areas. LexPhil continues its Music Builds education platform during the 2019/2020 season, introducing new and exciting opportunities for all students! Music Builds provides the framework on which LexPhil’s education programs develop and serve multiple arts education and cross curricular needs. BENEFITS: The cognitive processes and physical movements that are required for musical activity are especially beneficial to young children. 

Music training is closely correlated with development of phonological awareness (the ability to hear and produce separate sounds) – one of the most important predictors of early reading skills.

Children who were motivated to practice a specific art form, develop improved attention and general intelligence. Training of attention and focus leads to improvement in other cognitive domains.

Links have been found between high levels of music training and the ability to manipulate information in both working memory and long-term memory.
