MEET OUR MUSICIANS BACK STAGE
REBECCA J. WILLIE, Violin Member of the Nashville Symphony since: 2002 Hometown: Buffalo, N.Y. When did you know that you wanted to be a professional musician? When I was growing up, my dad played in the National Ballet of Canada, and I used to go see him perform in The Nutcracker. I loved The Nutcracker, so I’d go see 20 or 30 shows every December. When I was in high school, I got the opportunity to play Nutcracker for the first time, and it was so incredibly exciting to me because I had been in love with it since I was a little girl. I was starting to focus on the violin, and that solidified my desire to try to make it professionally. What person has had the greatest influence on you as a musician, and what have you learned from them? When I was in college, I had a chamber music coach, Peter Oundjian, who has actually guestconducted here in Nashville a couple of times. He was an amazing musician and a great coach. I was struggling with my own motivation, and at one point he said, "If you don't give it your all and you fail...then you have an excuse. But you'll never really know if you could have done it. If you give 100 percent and fail, then you will really feel like you have failed. But in music, you have to go 100 percent to succeed...so take the leap." That really inspired me to commit and make music my life. If you had a chance to meet any composer or musician, who would it be? I don’t have a favorite composer. One of the reasons I became a classical musician is because I love all of the music — but I really love the music of Prokofiev. I’ve never played anything by him that I haven’t absolutely adored playing. I think it would be interesting to hear him talk about his pieces, play things for him and find out if we’re doing them the way he intended. 10

Do you enjoy listening to music outside of work, and what do you listen to? I have friends who are songwriters, and I like to go to the Bluebird Café and Station Inn and see them play. I try to support chamber music as much as I can, so I always go to ALIAS concerts and some of the concerts at Blair School of Music. Do you have a favorite piece of music you’ve performed with the Nashville Symphony? It really has to be The Nutcracker. I love playing it every year. It makes me so happy. Where would we find you when you’re not onstage? These days you would find me hanging out with my kids; that’s pretty much where I am most of the time. We’re usually in a park or someplace outside trying to absorb as much fresh air as we can. The only other thing I do regularly outside of the Nashville Symphony is serve as concertmaster of the Nashville Philharmonic, a volunteer amateur orchestra formed 11 years ago by [current Nashville Symphony Chorus Director] Kelly Corcoran. She’s a very, very dear friend of mine from when we were both in New World Symphony together. NPO is a wonderful organization because everyone who comes to rehearsal every week loves music so much that they can’t not play. That’s really inspiring to be around and a good reminder of what music is about. NOTE: Nashville Philharmonic will perform 7 p.m. Feb. 18 and 4 p.m. Feb. 23.

n 1823, the same year that the young Gioachino Rossini’s Semiramide was unveiled, the novelist Stendhal published the first edition of his influential biography of the composer. Stendhal — a fervent admirer — remarked in the biography’s preface that his subject’s irresistible success invited comparison with a recently deceased political figure: “Napoleon is dead; but a new conqueror has already shown himself to the world.” The Rossini Renaissance that began in the 20th century has been slowly correcting the stereotype of the composer as nothing more than a comic genius. That stereotype persists, however, thanks to the reliable popularity of The Barber of Seville, as well as recent stagings of such other wild and crazy works as L’italiana in Algeri and Le
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Rossini’s approach to the overture format in this case was, for him, unusual. Many of his other overtures use material unrelated to the opera to come. The famous Barber of Seville overture, for example, actually recycles tunes originally written for non-comic operas. But Semiramide’s overture is woven from thematic ideas that do occur within the opera itself. Moreover, it’s one of Rossini’s most expansive curtain raisers, second only to the William Tell Overture in length. Semiramide remains a work rarely encountered in the opera house, but the overture enjoys a life of its own in the concert hall, thanks to its superb craftsmanship. This is a composer

comte Ory. Yet an early turning point in Rossini’s “Napoleonic” conquest was the success of his serious opera Tancredi in 1813, a work Stendhal particularly treasured. In fact, during his lifetime the name Rossini became closely identified with operas in the serious and heroic mold, including an Otello that was considered canonical until Verdi superseded it. But as fashions changed, these works and his epic historical operas largely fell into oblivion — among them Semiramide, the last of Rossini’s operas for the Italian stage before he resettled in Paris and began setting French libretti. (He wrote one more Italian-language opera, Il viaggio a Reims, for a Parisian house.) Like Tancredi, which had premiered at the same Venetian house a decade earlier, Semiramide drew from a drama by Voltaire, and both operas featured the same librettist. Set in ancient Babylon, the convoluted story carries clear echoes of the ancient Greek Oresteia and even Hamlet. Queen Semiramide — a complex coloratura role Rossini wrote for the star soprano Isabella Colbran, who became his wife — has had her husband murdered with an accomplice who wants the kingship. But she falls in love with Arsace, a young military leader, not realizing he is the son her husband had sent away before his death. The murdered king’s ghost commands his son to avenge him. After many complications, Arsace accidentally kills Semiramide as she intervenes to save him in the climactic scene.

at the top of his game. In the opening gestures we hear a brief example of Rossini’s signature crescendo: a tidal pull that involves not just an increase in volume but an increase in density as well, as more and more instruments are piled on to the texture. A slow reverie for a quartet of horns holds our attention for several minutes before the fast Allegro section takes off with another characteristically Rossinian theme in the strings. Notice the delectable writing for
the woodwinds, especially in the second theme, followed by a longer-range playout of that unmistakable crescendo. The pattern is repeated before Rossini caps the overture with a thrillingly energetic final section. The Overture is scored for piccolo, flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion and strings.

he Piano Concerto in G major is one of Maurice Ravel’s final masterpieces and one of the indisputable gems of the entire concerto repertoire. Ravel embarked on this work for his own use in 1929, following a couple of earlier abandoned attempts to write a piano concerto. He intended to build an ambitious world tour around this piece, but a commission from pianist Paul Wittgenstein — the so-called “Concerto for the Left Hand” — took precedence, and Ravel wasn’t able to complete “his” concerto until 1932. By this time, failing health and a recognition that his own technique wasn’t up to the demands of his score forced Ravel to cede the soloist role to his friend, the pianist Marguerite Long, while he took on the role of conductor. Ravel dedicated the score to Long, who had also premiered the original piano version

of his war memorial work, Le Tombeau de Couperin. In the G major Concerto, we directly confront the magical result of Ravel’s emulation of Mozart. Yet it’s important to note that this doesn’t take the form of outright imitation, any more than Le Tombeau de Couperin involves an attempt to counterfeit the style of the French composer François Couperin. By setting out to write what he called “a concerto in the strict sense,” Ravel once again showed his facility for wearing masks, his sleight-of-hand in seamlessly transitioning from one stylistic reference to another. The “strict sense” of the concerto naturally meant ignoring the Romantic legacy of pianistas-heroic individualist and instead hearkening back to the original golden age of the piano concerto as shaped by Mozart. But the 19th
On top of all this we hear allusions to the innocent wonder of childhood — the first sound is the circus-like cracking of a whip — and to the sturdy, timeless vitality of folk music, as in the opening theme played on piccolo against a swirling bitonal haze projected from the keyboard. Archaic and modernist impulses are effortlessly woven together in a manner reminiscent of Stravinsky’s Petrushka. Meanwhile, through its kaleidoscopic use of color, Ravel’s enchanting scoring for a classically chamber-sized orchestra mirrors the shifting stylistic coordinates. The justly beloved Adagio assai is where Ravel comes closest to Mozart (he referred specifically to “the Mozart of the Clarinet Quintet”), though it’s the deceptive simplicity of the melody and accompaniment in the piano’s solo and the perfect timing of the woodwinds’ entrances that evoke Mozart here, as opposed to any actual quotation. The circus whip returns in the brief final movement, along with a saucier jazz sensibility. But amid the music’s headlong rush, fanfares and march gestures, Ravel crafts each detail with the care of a precision engineer. In addition to solo piano, the score calls for piccolo, flute, oboe, English horn, 2 clarinets, E-flat clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, trumpet, trombone, timpani, percussion, harp and strings.

century does enter in via Ravel’s admiration of Camille Saint-Saëns, whom he mentions alongside Mozart as an inspiration for the work. Apropos the dazzling writing for the keyboard in the outer movements, it’s interesting to recall Camille SaintSaëns’ defense of virtuosity, so often denigrated as mere show: “It gives the artist wings to help him to escape the prosaic and commonplace. The conquered difficulty is in itself a thing of beauty.” Ravel meanwhile incorporates contemporary references hinting at his recent encounters with George Gershwin (in particular to Rhapsody in Blue and the Concerto in F), whose use of jazz he believed opened up a promising new path for the future of music.
Born on October 9, 1835, in Paris, France; died on December 16, 1921 in Algiers, Algeria (then part of the French Empire) Symphony No. 3 in C minor, Op. 78 (“Organ” Symphony) Composed: 1886 First performance: May 19, 1886, in London, with the composer conducting the Royal Philharmonic Society First Nashville Symphony performance: April 4-5, 1966, with soloist Scott Withrow and Music Director Willis Page Estimated length: 35 minutes
his concluding symphony is a monument of the repertory and was written by a composer whose enormous output straddled all the major genres, including chamber music, symphonies, operas, concertos and even a pioneering early film score. But Camille Saint-Saëns is known today by a pitiably reduced handful of pieces, including this blockbuster work from 1886, a commission from London’s Royal Philharmonic Society. The symphony was dedicated to Franz Liszt when he died two months after the premiere. One of the most impressive of all musical prodigies in his earliest accomplishments, SaintSaëns had attempted a first symphony at 16 but destroyed the score, waiting another two years
CL A SS I C A L S E R I ES
to present his official First Symphony to the public. As an astonished Berlioz put it, the young man’s one weakness seemed to be that “he lacks inexperience.” Saint-Saëns’ long lifespan traced an epic journey from the heyday of Romanticism through the birth pangs of modernism and the trauma of World War I. Inevitably, Saint-Saëns fell victim to the changing tides of musical fashion. Of the few works regularly performed today, most date from the 1870s and 1880s, when he was at the peak of his fame. These include a few concertos, the tone poem Danse Macabre, the opera Samson and Delilah, and The Carnival of the Animals and the Third Symphony — the last two written back-toback in 1886. The Third Symphony — his last essay in the genre — reveals Saint-Saëns’ determination to claim a place in the lineage of Beethoven and the great symphonists. France’s public musical life at this time tended to be focused on the opera; symphonies seemed passé. One aspect of SaintSaëns’ achievement was to steer the attention of fellow French composers back to the field of instrumental music. Although he cannot be claimed as one of the major innovators in music, he was eager to “update” the premises of symphonic writing so as to preserve its viability in an era when the symphony was thought to be an endangered species. This impulse led Saint-Saëns to two choices in his overall concept for the Third Symphony. First, on the level of orchestration, he noted that “the time has come for the symphony to benefit by the progress of modern instrumentation.” Thus he amplifies the traditional classical orchestra with additional colors — English horn and contrabassoon in the woodwinds, for example. But most striking of all is the integration of piano and organ into the sonic texture. The Third Symphony’s popular English nickname, the “Organ Symphony,” is something of a misnomer. This isn’t a symphony built around the presence of the organ — a sort of quasi-organ concerto — but one in which the organ (along with piano) adds another dimension to the big picture, contributing sonorities previously associated with sacred music or grand operatic spectacle. Thanks to the impressive Martin Foundation Concert
J A NUA RY 2 0 1 4
Organ, the effect should be particularly spectacular. The second area in which Saint-Saëns alters the classical symphonic model is in form, by creating a design of two movements. In terms of how we actually hear the music, it doesn’t seem to vary noticeably from the familiar fourmovement pattern of a fast opening movement, slow movement, scherzo and finale. Yet SaintSaëns fuses the first two movements into one unit and the last two into another, replacing the conventional compartmentalization into four discrete movements with an increased sense of unity that spans the entire work. This Romantic preoccupation with organic connections betrays the influence of Franz Liszt, who is actually a sort of godfather to this work. The essentially Lisztian idea that underlies the Third is “thematic transformation.” In other words, a single thematic idea permeates the symphony but recurs in transformed guises, its character altered in response to each new context. In addition, Liszt was not only a legendary piano virtuoso, but a master of the organ, and his music for that instrument further inspired Saint-Saëns.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R The symphony begins with a short but powerful slow introduction revolving around a plaintive motto of four rising notes. This leads into the nervous music of the Allegro proper, where the main theme takes shape in an agitated form. (The parallel moment in the anxious opening movement of Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony comes to mind.) A second thematic group is soon forced to blend its graceful separate identity with the agitated first theme, which increasingly seems to summon the ominous aura of the Dies irae chant melody and its invocation of the furious Day of Judgment. Saint-Saëns was not only a brilliant pianist but also a legendary organist who served for over two decades at the neoclassical Madeleine Church in the heart of Paris, and much of his orchestration here — the piling up of harmonic and textural ideas — suggests an organist’s sensibility; yet the organ itself has remained silent. At last, when the tempo again slows and the orchestra has subsided (following a short pause and a slanting of the tonality into D-flat

CONRAD TAO, piano Dubbed a musician of “probing intellect and open-hearted vision” by The New York Times, Conrad Tao has enjoyed a varied career as pianist, composer, violinist and — most recently — presenter and curator. Born in Urbana, Illinois, to parents of Chinese descent, he was found playing children’s songs on the piano at 18 months of age, gave his first piano recital at age 4, and four years later made his concerto debut performing Mozart’s Piano Concerto in A Major. In June 2011, the White House Commission on Presidential Scholars and the Department of Education named Tao a Presidential Scholar in the Arts, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts awarded him a YoungArts gold medal in music. In May 2012, he was awarded the prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant. On his 19th birthday, in June 2013, Tao kicked off the inaugural edition of his UNPLAY Festival at the powerHouse Arena in Brooklyn. The festival featured Tao with guest artists performing a wide variety of new works. Across three nights, UNPLAY explored the fleeting ephemera of the Internet, the possibility of a 21stcentury canon, and music’s role in social activism and critique. In November 2013, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra premiered Tao’s new orchestral composition, The World Is Very Different Now, commissioned in observance of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. This work is the latest in his accomplished career as a composer, which has featured eight consecutive ASCAP Morton Gould Young Composer Awards. During the 2013/14 season, Tao continues his formidable globetrotting career as a pianist, with two tours of South America, two tours of Europe, a third consecutive annual recital at Carnegie’s Weill Hall and performances across North America. Tao currently attends the Columbia University/Juilliard School joint degree program.

major), the organ discreetly enters to create a contemplative atmosphere. A serene melody emerges slowly from the strings and organ, spreading to other instrumental choirs. The rumination continues even as the agitated music works its way back into the picture. Saint-Saëns described the closing part of this movement, with its unearthly swaying of keys between D-flat major and E minor, as “mystical.” The second half of the symphony begins with a reversion to the turbulent unease of the opening Allegro — another transformation of earlier ideas, now juxtaposed against a powerful rhythmic pattern. Saint-Saëns introduces rapid-fire piano scales in a Presto section that foreshadows the breakthrough to come. From the depths emerges a stern, brassy motif, followed by a struggle among these varied musical ideas until, after another subsiding, Saint-Saëns unleashes the full power of the king of instruments. With a chord of regal C major — utterly fresh in this context, after the labyrinth of shifting keys through which we have been wandering — Saint-Saëns commences the final part of his mighty symphony. The recurring main theme takes the form of a chorale that builds in confidence, with another take on the Dies irae idea. After some impressive fugal writing and a contrasting episode in the woodwinds that resembles a sweet pastoral breeze, the music eventually navigates its way toward a glorious and triumphal reconfiguration of the signature theme. Precisely because of its lack of any explicit program or associated narrative, the “Organ Symphony” proclaims music’s ability to stage drama on its own terms, transforming themes as thoroughly as characters in a novel.

ABOUT THE ARTISTS KENNY ROGERS Kenny Rogers has enjoyed great success during his storied career of nearly fiveand-a-half decades. The country and pop superstar has endeared music lovers around the globe while receiving countless awards for his music and charity work, including three GRAMMY Awards, 18 American Music Awards, 11 People’s Choice Awards, eight Academy of Country Music Awards and five Country Music Association Awards. A 2013 Country Music Hall of Fame Inductee, Rogers is the RIAA’s eighth-bestselling male artist of all time, with one Diamond album, 19 Platinum albums, 31 Gold albums and sales of more than 120 million records worldwide. He has recorded 24 No. 1 songs (including “The Gambler,” “Lady,” “Lucille,” “She Believes in Me,” “Through the Years,” “Love Will Turn You
Around” and “Islands in the Stream”) and 12 No. 1 albums. Houston-born Rogers formed his first band while in high school in 1956 — a rockabilly group called the Scholars. He charted as a solo artist in the late ’50s with “That Crazy Feeling” and performed the song on American Bandstand. In 1966 he became a member of The New Christy Minstrels. The spotlight started focusing on Rogers when his group the First Edition scored their first hit, “Just Dropped In (To See What Condition My Condition Was In).” Pop and country chart success followed for the band, but it was Rogers’ GRAMMY®-winning performance of “Lucille” as a solo artist in 1977 that propelled him to superstardom, launching one of the most prosperous careers in the history of music. Rogers has continued his amazing run into the 21st century, most recently with You Can’t Make Old Friends, which was released last October to rave reviews and a No. 9 debut on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart.

CLASSICAL MYSTERY TOUR Jim Owen - John Lennon Benjamin Chadwick - Paul McCartney David John - George Harrison Chris Camilleri - Ringo Starr Selections to be announced from the stage
ABOUT THE PROGRAM The four musicians in Classical Mystery Tour look and sound just like The Beatles, but Classical Mystery Tour is more than just a rock concert. The show presents more than two dozen Beatles tunes transcribed note-for-note and performed exactly as they were originally recorded. It’s the best of The Beatles like you’ve never heard them before. Since its initial performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in 1996, Classical Mystery Tour has performed hundreds of concerts with orchestras across the United States and around the world, and has received countless accolades from fans as well as media. Classical Mystery Tour
has several CDs and T-shirts available for purchase at the concert and at classicalmysterytour.com. The group is available after their performance to autograph CDs and programs. JIM OWEN, John Lennon Jim Owen was born and raised in Huntington Beach, California. He gained rich musical experience from his father, who played classics for him on the piano and from his extensive library of recordings. Owen began studying piano at age 6 and won honors in various piano performance competitions through his teenage years. He was 8 when he first heard The Beatles and promptly
P OPS S E R I ES
decided to take up the study of the guitar. His first professional performance as a Beatle was at 16. Then, at age 18, he began touring internationally with various Beatles tribute productions. In 1996, Owen began working on his idea for a new show with orchestra. It has long been his dream to share with the public live performances of some of the greatest music ever written and recorded. Classical Mystery Tour was the result.
at a young age and for many years played drums and sang along to the recordings. Gradually he gravitated to progressive rock bands, but retained a fondness for The Beatles. He has played drums for a variety of touring artists, including Peter Noone of Herman’s Hermits, Badfinger, Micky Dolenz, Joe Walsh and other Beatles-era bands. When not playing music, he has an active commercial and voice-over career.
BENJAMIN CHADWICK, Paul McCartney Benjamin Chadwick first heard the Beatles around the house when he was growing up, but once he witnessed “Twist and Shout” in the movie Ferris Bueller’s Day Off, he was instantly hooked on all things Beatles. he has been performing music in some form or another for more than 20 years. Self-taught in voice, guitar, bass, piano, drums and ukulele, he brings experience and talent to every appearance. There is nothing more important to him than sharing music with others.
MARTIN HERMAN, conductor A resident of Los Angeles, Martin Herman was educated at Duke University, University of Pennsylvania, University of California at Berkeley, and Stanford University. He also spent two years in Paris on a Fulbright Grant, where he worked as a composer and conductor with the New American Music in Europe and American Music Week festivals. Aside from his conducting interests, Herman is an active composer and arranger. He has received fellowships and grants from the American Music Center, the Camargo Foundation, Meet The Composer, Trust for Mutual Understanding and the National Endowment for the Arts. He has written chamber and orchestral works as well as three operas. As a longtime Beatles fan, Herman was commissioned to provide the orchestral transcriptions heard on Classical Mystery Tour. Recent guest conducting engagements include the Detroit Symphony, Dallas Symphony and the Philharmonia Chamber Orchestra in Prague, Czech Republic.
DAVID JOHN, George Harrison Originally from Nebraska, but now living in Salt Lake City, Utah, David John has been performing since age 17. His main musical love captured his attention when The Beatles preformed in America for the first time on the Ed Sullivan show. Inspired by what he saw and heard, he focused on singing and studying guitar and feels privileged to portray the “quiet, spiritual” one. John has shared the stage as an opening act with such notables as Beach Boys, Chicago, Peter Noone & Herman’s Hermits, Young Rascals, Glen Campbell, America, Kansas, Styx, Peter Frampton, Night Ranger, Ted Nugent, Buddy Guy and The Temptations. Since 1993, he has taken the stage with a variety of Beatle tribute bands, but especially enjoys teaming up with a full orchestra to authentically reproduce the original recordings in a live concert setting. He loves to present George Harrison’s guitar arrangements in their articulate detail. CHRIS CAMILLERI, Ringo Starr Born and raised on Long Island, New York, Chris Camilleri had a convenient drum teacher: his dad. He started listening to Beatles records

In 2009, three award-winning performers teamed up to create Playing by Air: a formally trained actor, a homeschooled free spirit and an academic community leader. Together, Michael, Ted and Jacob all share a love for juggling, circus arts and inspiring audiences through laughter and creativity. Each member of Playing By Air has followed his own path to discover and apply his passion for the arts, education and the community. Based in Nashville, the trio enjoy performing together as partners and friends for audiences around the world. As both an entertainer and academic researcher, Jacob developed a model for combining circus arts and community service while completing his doctorate at Vanderbilt University. Jacob works with artists and city leaders to bring people together and to build healthy communities through creativity. He grew up playing basketball and wiggling his ears, a skill he learned from his grandmother, which likely led to his current career.
Ever since he was young, Michael has been interested in all things kinetic — from roller coasters to monorails to waterwheels to robots. With a bachelor of fine arts degree in acting and years of experience as a dancer and puppeteer, Michael is respected worldwide for his ability to create new ideas from multiple artistic disciplines. He is a recipient of three first-place awards from the International Jugglers Association. In his spare time, he enjoys designing original T-shirts and exploring rarely seen New York City subway stations. Hailing from Parry Sound, Canada, Ted brings an unparalleled technique to Playing By Air with his mastery of the Chinese yo-yo. He was awarded the Most Spectacular Award at the annual Atlanta Juggling Festival. Ted’s nontraditional home-school education allowed him to nurture his interests in music, travel and juggling. He is passionate about inspiring students and teachers to follow their talents and creativity, wherever they may lead. When not on the road, Ted enjoys time at home with his wife, their cat and the spiciest hot sauce he can find.

lucid, clear-textured style of neoclassicism that Stravinsky had helped to make so fashionable in Paris. Back home, Piston in turn became an extremely influential teacher for more than three decades at Harvard, where his students included Leonard Bernstein and Elliott Carter. He also published important textbooks in harmony, theory and orchestration that have been used by generations of music students. But Piston hardly remained secluded in the ivory tower. He enjoyed a long-lasting relationship, for example, with the Boston Symphony, where the French conductor Charles Munch replaced Serge Koussevitzky as music director in 1949. Both conductors commissioned and premiered some of Piston’s most significant orchestral compositions. His Third Symphony, a Koussevitzky commission, won the Pulitzer Prize in 1948 — the first of two Piston would receive. That same year, Munch asked Piston to write a curtain-raiser piece for his French orchestra, the Orchestre National de la Radiodiffusion Française, which he brought to America for its first grand tour after the war. Munch programmed the resulting Toccata for Orchestra on every one of the 41 concerts his ensemble performed around the country.

A toccata (literally, Italian for “touched”), often used in the Baroque, refers to a showpiece that gives a thrilling display of musical skill. That’s exactly what Piston accomplishes here, in what is essentially a miniature concerto for orchestra in one movement. The fast-slow-fast, three-part form he employs even echoes the familiar concerto format, hey have good musical ideas,” wrote Igor though in this case the concluding fast part is Stravinsky in 1945, referring to two composers actually an elaborate reprise of the opening section. who dominated the American orchestral scene at Piston wrote that memories of his student mid-century: Aaron Copland and Walter Piston. days in Paris “returned during the composition” “They also have the requisite techniques.

Born on March 31, 1732, in Rohrau, Lower Austria; died on May 31, 1809, in Vienna Symphony No. 98 in B-flat major Composed: 1792 First performance: March 2, 1792, in London, with the composer conducting First Nashville Symphony performance: These are the orchestra’s first performances.

he symphony served as a kind of touchstone for Joseph Haydn throughout his long career. Although he wasn’t exactly its inventor, Haydn elevated the symphony into a genre that allowed him to negotiate his unique balance between artistic exploration and the need to entertain. His final dozen symphonies, written for adoring London audiences who were connoisseurs of the Haydn style, show the composer bringing this equilibrium to perfection and in the process revealing new possibilities for the symphony’s development. The irrepressible innovation and vitality of these works make for one of the great examples of renewed creative flowering late in an artist’s career. Number 98 is the penultimate symphony Haydn composed during the first of his two extensive trips to London in the 1790s. (Despite the numbering, the Symphony No. 97 was the last to be completed from this batch of six.) That initial visit lasted from January 1791 until mid1792. He had been engaged to serve as a kind of composer-in-residence in London by the German-born Johann Peter Salomon, a violin virtuoso and highly successful concert promoter. Haydn was now approaching his 60s, and his imagination was spurred on by the extraordinary
reception from the sophisticated London public — a dramatic contrast to the decades of isolation that had been his lifestyle while serving at the remote court of Prince Esterházy. When the Symphony No. 98 was first performed on March 2, 1792 at London’s horseshoe-shaped Hanover Square Rooms (capacity of about 800), the audience was so delighted it demanded encores of the first and last movements.
W H AT TO L I ST E N FO R Haydn draws us in with a surprising gesture, opening in gloomy B-flat minor. Like all the rest of the London symphonies (save the only minor-key one, No. 95), No. 98 begins with a slow introduction that plots out a unique strategy to cross the threshold into the swiftly paced first movement proper. What Haydn does here is to brush away the secretive, suspenseful air of the Adagio by fashioning his main theme to echo the rising triad of the opening, but now as a triad of cheerful B-flat major. The musical argument is in part about how much expressive variety can be wrung from such ultra-simple, elemental material. In fact, Haydn goes on to repeat this idea in the dominant, InConcert
CL A SS I C A L S E R I ES
rather than resort to a bona fide “second theme” (a perfect example of the composer’s so-called “monothematic” style). Even the relatively new idea entrusted to the oboe near the end of the exposition is a variant of the initial pattern. But the true excellence of Haydn’s invention is to come, in a far-reaching development that goes on to prove the inexhaustibility of his theme as it recombines in dazzling, intricate counterpoint. While the ingenious economy of the first movement contains much from which Beethoven would learn, the Adagio is Haydn’s moving homage to Mozart. His close friend had died in December 1791, and the news reached Haydn in London while he was working on this symphony. The music scholar Donald Francis Tovey famously demonstrated how Haydn works in references to the melancholy chromaticism from the corresponding slow movement of Mozart’s Jupiter Symphony. The Adagio’s main melodic material — a variant of “God Save the King,” in F major — takes on a gently elegiac hue upon its return. The Minuet counterbalances this introverted meditation with a celebratory spirit, restoring the trumpets and timpani that bowed out of the Adagio. The Trio offers a few close-ups within the larger collective shot of the festivities, including dalliances between the woodwinds and strings. As if all this weren’t enough to please the adoring London audiences who were connoisseurs of the Haydn style, the composer goes on to offer the most innovative of all his finales. It starts off with a high-spirited Presto tune that might be easily spun into a lightweight envoi. Instead, Haydn writes an unusually long movement that counterbalances the substance of the first. In addition to his fertile development of the material, he introduces a number of adventurous textural experiments, including the unexpected emergence of a solo violin and — after a slowing of the tempo in the coda — the old-fashioned continuo accompaniment represented by the tinkling scales of the cembalo keyboard. The Symphony No. 98 is scored for flute and pairs of oboes, bassoons, horns, and trumpets, timpani, harpsichord and strings

MANUEL DE FALLA
Born on November 23, 1876, in Cádiz, Spain; died on November 14, 1946, in Alta Gracia, Argentina Nights in the Gardens of Spain for Piano and Orchestra Composed: 1909-16, with interruptions First performance: April 9, 1916, in Madrid, with José Cubiles as pianist and Enrique Fernández Arbós conducting the Madrid Symphony Orchestra First Nashville Symphony performance: October 9-10, 1972, with soloist Alicia de Larrocha and Music Director Thor Johnson Estimated length: 22 minutes
ronically, Manuel de Falla came to a full appreciation of the essence of Spanish music only while he was living over the border in Paris. His career exemplifies the powerful role of cultural cross-pollination and crisscrossing influences, this time from a Spanish point of view. In 1907 Falla, a native of the port city of Cádiz in Andalusian Spain, moved to Paris, which had become an epicenter for the new-music scene. There he developed close ties with Debussy and Ravel, as well as with fellow expatriate Spanish composers. Stravinsky also became a prominent influence.
W H AT TO LISTE N F OR In fact, Falla made a distinction between “expressive” and “descriptive” music, insisting that Nights involved the former and was not intended as mere programmatic illustration. Instead, sounds that conjure external images of festivals and celebrations merge inextricably with subjective, shifting moods: “for melancholy
and mystery have their part also.” Similarly, Falla reworks elements of popular music from Andalusia, including dance and the flamencostyle “deep” singing known as cante jondo, but he filters these through his state-of-the-art orchestral imagination and develops them in symphonic ways. The first panel, “In the Generalife,” refers to the Alhambra Palace complex in Granada and immediately evokes Falla’s sense of “mystery.” The exotic turns of the first theme are further elaborated by the piano writing, while a more exuberant theme conjures sparkling fountains amid the shadowy garden scene. “Distant Dance,” the briefest panel, stirs and flutters to the pulse of a dance in an unidentified garden. The piano joins in with captivating rhythmic motifs, and its pas de deux with the orchestra builds in excitement, leading without pause to the final scene (“In the Gardens of the Sierra de Córdoba”). Here Falla clearly gives the piano a role as a Gypsy singer encouraged by the surrounding onlookers. The orchestration elicits a sense of shared festivity and, especially in the magic final pages, distills the nocturnal beauty of the setting with an air of gentle melancholy, as of past joys recalled. In addition to solo piano, Nights in the Gardens of Spain is scored for an orchestra of piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, cymbals, triangle, celesta, harp and strings.
S E R I ES
It was just at this time that Debussy and Ravel were experimenting with piano and orchestral compositions that drew inspiration for their form and texture from Spanish imagery and settings. The composers’ musical circle also included the Spanish pianist Ricardo Viñes, a good friend of Ravel for whom Falla set out to write a set of evocative nocturnes titled Nights in the Gardens of Spain (Noches en los jardines de España). On the advice of Viñes and others, Falla decided to expand his scope and create an orchestral triptych, which he composed after returning to Spain upon the outbreak of war in 1914. (He dedicated the score to Viñes.) In his early years, Falla had already been interested in investigating the musical traits that characterized Andalusia, but his time in Paris triggered an epiphany: He realized that instead of literally recasting folk materials, the most effective way to write “Spanish music” was to evoke it — and Debussy’s sensual manipulation of atmosphere and impression had suggested a way. Nights in the Gardens of Spain shows Falla confidently applying this insight in a work that combines aspects of a piano concerto and a tone poem. The composer himself described it as “symphonic impressions” meant to evoke places, sensations and feelings.”

Born on June 11, 1864, in Munich, Germany; died on September 8, 1949, in GarmischPartenkirchen, Germany Suite from Der Rosenkavalier Composed: 1909-10 First performance: The opera premiered on January 26, 1911; this suite was first performed on October 5, 1944. Artur Rodziński, who has traditionally received credit for the arrangement, conducted the New York Philharmonic. First Nashville Symphony performance: November 25, 1952, with Music Director Guy Taylor Estimated length: 24 minutes
ichard Strauss cut his teeth in the art of musical storytelling through his extraordinary sequence of tone poems composed in the last years of the 19th century. In a way, they provided the ideal preparation for his career as an opera composer, and he drew from this experience to craft the unforgettable musical characterizations of Der Rosenkavalier, which range from boisterous parody to subtle psychological nuance. Strauss also had the benefit of working with one of the most marvelously crafted librettos in the literature, thanks to his partnership with the poet/dramatist Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874-1929), who had 38

recently launched their legendary partnership by furnishing the libretto for Elektra, the (shockingly different, as it were) opera immediately preceding Der Rosenkavalier. Set in mid-18th-century Vienna, Der Rosenkavalier was originally conceived as a period comedy inspired by Verdi’s Falstaff and the comic panache of Molière’s satires. The story’s comic aspects center around the loutish, selfcentered Baron von Ochs (a German name that means exactly what it sounds like in English) and his quest to win the hand of beautiful Sophie von Faninal, along with the sizeable dowry promised by her nouveau riche father. But the Baron’s plans are foiled by the young Count Rofrano, known as Octavian (a part that is cast as a “trousers role” for a female singer, like Cherubino in Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro). Octavian himself falls in love with Sophie when he meets her as bearer of the “silver rose” to announce Ochs’ engagement. She returns his love, and, in fine comic fashion, the young count then orchestrates a plot to unmask his rival’s true character. But Octavian must also come to terms with his love for an older woman, the Marschallin — an aristocrat trapped in a loveless marriage, with whom he is engaged in a passionate affair at the very start of the opera. The Marschallin introduces an entirely new dimension of pathos and psychological nuance into the comedy and becomes its true central character, revealing Strauss and Hofmannsthal’s desire to emulate the bittersweet emotional complexity of Mozart’s Figaro. In fact it is she who arranges for Octavian to deliver Ochs’ engagement token, thus securing her lover’s first introduction to the younger woman she already intuits will become her own rival. The perceptive Marschallin has decided to save Sophie from suffering the same fate that befell her at that age. Strauss wrote the score for Der Rosenkavalier between 1909 and 1910, and the opera was premiered in January 1911. It made the already rich and famous composer into an even more wildly successful celebrity, becoming a phenomenon well beyond the opera house and generating an avalanche of “tie-in” merchandise. Der Rosenkavalier has also found a life in the concert hall. Along with its gestures of Mozartean homage, the score exhibits the orchestral mastery Strauss had inherited from Wagner. This aspect
The Suite opens forcefully with the Prelude’s jubilant, masculine horns, which evoke the teenage Octavian’s passion for the Marschallin (who is approaching middle age). The music, alternately lush and heroic, includes one of the most graphic depictions of sex in the literature, as the horns work to a climax followed by a rosy, post-coital afterglow woven from leitmotifs representing the Marschallin and her reflections on aging. This jump cuts to the stunning scene in the second act that gives the opera its title (“The Knight of the Rose”), with Octavian undertaking his mission to present Baron Ochs’ silver rose to Sophie. (Despite what the Viennese tourist industry would have you believe, this magnificent ceremony — given a genuinely silvery, glistening orchestration by Strauss — was a Symbolist invention by Hofmannsthal.) The young pair fall in love to music of rapturously soaring ecstasy. A brief, chaotic interlude signals the intrusion of the lecher Ochs, who then dances with fatuous self-satisfaction to one of the waltzes that are such a recognizable part of Der Rosenkavalier’s sound world. Ever since the opera’s premiere, pedantic critics have noted that the waltzes pervading the score are “anachronistic” for the mid-18thcentury setting. But in truth they never feel out of place amid Strauss’ time-traveling homage to the great music of the past, which also includes parodies of Tristan and loving nods to the (unrelated) “waltz king,” all of it filtered through the composer’s unmistakable style. If the waltzes showcase the opera’s comic side, the great Trio near the end of the third act is the epitome of Der Rosenkavalier’s bittersweet
The Suite from Der Rosenkavalier 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 and strings. — Thomas May, the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator, is a writer and translator who covers classical and contemporary music.

wisdom. How fitting that Strauss actually decelerates the waltz’s natural pace for this music, where the Marschallin, who had earlier been shown trying to stop time, renounces her lover. She acknowledges that Octavian and Sophie will be happier together, while they meanwhile marvel at their newfound love. After the Marschallin’s graceful exit, the pair continue with a duet of simple, fairy-tale charm. Capping the Suite is another of Ochs’ hedonistic waltzes from earlier in the act, which features some of Strauss’ most delirious modulations.

comes to the fore in the purely instrumental suite we hear, the best known of numerous suites that have been extracted from the score over the years (most of which were not arranged by the composer himself). Strauss’ own role in preparing this particular suite is murky; around the time it was introduced in New York, in 1944, he was fashioning a different suite of his own drawn mostly from the opera’s waltzes. The Polish conductor Artur Rodziński, who led the Rosenkavalier Suite’s first performance, is usually cited as the party responsible for actually splicing it all together. In any case, Strauss likely consented to its publication the following year.
Portland, Chicago and Madrid. In May 2011 he made his New York debut at Carnegie Hall with the Oregon Symphony as part of the Spring for Music festival, and the recording of the concert program on the PentaTone label was nominated for a GRAMMY® in 2012. Kalmar was born in Uruguay to Austrian parents and began violin studies at age 6. Before coming to Portland he served as music director for the Hamburg Symphony, the Stuttgart Philharmonic, Vienna’s Tonnkunsterorchester and the Anhaltisches Theater in Dessau, Germany. ARNALDO COHEN, piano Brazilian-born pianist Arnaldo Cohen has a reputation for astonishing his audiences with his musical authority and virtuosity. He has performed with the Royal Philharmonic, the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and the Santa Cecilia Orchestra of Rome, under such leading conductors as Kurt Masur, Yehudi Menuhin and Wolfgang Sawallish. His performances in recent seasons have spanned the United States and Canada, including appearances with the Philadelphia Orchestra, The Cleveland Orchestra,
the Chicago Symphony and the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Recital appearances regularly include venues in Philadelphia, Chicago, San Francisco and Toronto. Cohen is a frequent recording artist, with recent discs including a rendering of the two Liszt Piano Concerti and the Totentanz with the São Paulo State Symphony Orchestra for BIS Records. He recorded his pioneering CD, Three Centuries of Brazilian Music, for the same label. He began his musical studies at age 5 and is a graduate of the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. He won First Prize at the 1972 Busoni International Piano Competition and made his debut at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. For five years, Cohen was a member of the acclaimed Amadeus Trio, and he has performed with many string quartets, including the Lindsay and Chillingirian Quartets. Until recently, Cohen held a professorship at the Royal Academy of Music in London. After living in London for many years, he relocated in 2004 to the United States, where he holds a full professorship at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University.

You don’t have to tap your nest-egg to build our nest-egg You can use life insurance to create an endowment from your income rather than your capital. Affordable premiums build coverage that will deliver a significant gift to the Nashville Symphony. In this way, you can leverage modest annual gifts into the equivalent of a substantial bequest or trust distribution. Make the Nashville Symphony the irrevocable owner of the policy, and receive a charitable deduction for your gifts covering our premium payments. We’ll work with you on this and other details that maximize the benefits of using life insurance to make your gift. For more information on making a gift of life insurance, including a free e-brochure entitled “Don’t Throw That Life Insurance Policy Away,” visit NashvilleSymphony.org/lifeinsurance. For a confidential conversation about this or other estate planning options, please contact M. Wade Kelley, CFRE, at (615) 687-6615.
PLEASE NOTE: The material presented is not offered as legal or tax advice. You are urged to seek the advice of your tax advisor, attorney and/or financial planner to determine whether a contemplated gift fits well into your overall circumstances and planning.
