PIANO IS HIS FORTE Bill Friskics-Warren

No other soloist can claim as close a kinship with the Schermerhorn’s Steinway grand piano as Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who returns to perform at Laura Turner Concert Hall this month. That’s because the renowned Frenchman personally selected it for the Nashville Symphony. In this month’s edition of InConcert, the pianist talks about his career, his musical tastes, Richard Strauss’ challenging piece Burleske and the sense of personal responsibility that comes with choosing a piano.

These are the kinds of stories we want to keep sharing, and we are continuing to talk to students throughout the school system in an effort to help them achieve their own dreams.

usic education is at the core of our mission at the Nashville Symphony, and since the opening of Schermerhorn Symphony Center our organization has intensified its efforts to create meaningful learning opportunities for citizens across Middle Tennessee. We now reach more than 145,000 people annually through our education and community engagement programs, and we are in the second year of our One Note One Neighborhood program, which seeks to provide a wellintegrated set of music education tools for students and teachers at targeted school clusters in the Metro Nashville Public School system. But we want to do even more. This season, for instance, we’ve received a number of letters and calls from parents frustrated by their children’s lack of access to musical instruments — the inevitable result of tight budgetary circumstances for both families and schools. We consider it our responsibility to help remove these obstacles, and so we decided to set out and find solutions to the problem. Our first step was to reach out to Nashville Symphony patrons and members of the community who have demonstrated their support of music education in the past. “Would you,” we asked them, “help us put instruments in the hands of deserving students?” The answer was a resounding “Yes!” Next we approached music teachers in the school system, and we asked them to share stories about students who were unable to advance in their musical education because they didn’t have an instrument. As a result of these efforts, we have already managed to put instruments in the hands of a number of children — like the cello student at Nashville School of the Arts whose mother wanted her to pursue music, but simply lacked the resources to rent or purchase an instrument. Then there is the story of Gregory, a remarkable young musician at John Trotwood Moore Middle School; he has a history of developmental problems and wears hearing aids in both ears. He also, according to his music teacher, has perfect pitch, a wonderfully joyous spirit and growing abilities as a percussionist. Thanks to a generous patron, the Nashville Symphony was able to provide Gregory with a vibraphone — and with the very real promise of new opportunities to learn and to grow. These are the kinds of stories we want to keep sharing, and we are continuing to talk to students throughout the school system in an effort to help them achieve their own dreams. Over time, the Nashville Symphony will build a whole inventory of instruments for just this purpose. We’ll maintain these instruments, keep them in good repair and make sure that even more children will get to have the kind of life-changing experiences that come from learning to play music. Our greatest hope is that, over time, we will make an even bigger difference in the lives of Middle Tennesseans. And so, in the months and years ahead, we will continue to explore ways of expanding our music education efforts, both through partnerships with organizations like the W.O. Smith/Nashville Community Music School, and through even more ambitious programs that have the potential to reach people of all ages and from all walks of life.

Spring Fashion Show welcomes Isaac Mizrahi On Tuesday, April 20, the 2010 Symphony Spring Fashion Show will welcome internationally renowned designer Isaac Mizrahi to Schermerhorn Symphony Center. In the world of fashion, it’s hard to think of a better-known figure than Mizrahi — his designs are regularly worn by Hollywood celebrities, not to mention by first lady Michelle Obama, and he’s become a regular presence on TV, most recently as the spirited host of Isaac Mizrahi Live! on the QVC network. He’ll present his fall collection when he comes to Nashville this month for the Symphony Spring Fashion Show. Mizrahi’s latest designs capture the feel of what he calls “an urban wonderland forest,” with looks such as “polypuff,” “camper coat” and “ice-lizard blazer.” Presented by Nashville’s outstanding fashion specialty store Gus Mayer and chaired by Troy Solarek and Pamela Kurio-Poe, the Symphony Spring Fashion Show will also feature the country group Little Big Town, who will serve as the evening’s special musical guest. The award-winning foursome, who first made a splash five years ago with their million-selling album The Road to Here, are preparing to release their latest album on Capitol Records Nashville. Along with music and fashion, the evening will also include a cocktail reception and a seated dinner prepared by the Schermerhorn’s top-notch culinary team. All proceeds from the Symphony Spring Fashion Show will go to the Nashville Symphony’s commitment to education and community outreach, including the Thor Johnson Scholarship Fund. Special thanks to Symphony Spring Fashion Show sponsors Alys Beach; Bob Parks Realty; Bristol Properties; Clinical Research Associates; Dulce Desserts; Frost Specialty; Gus Mayer; Horizon Wine & Spirits; Lewis, King, Krieg & Waldrop, P.C.; and McQuiddy Classic Printing. For more information, visit or contact Stacie Taylor, Director of the Nashville Symphony Orchestra League, at 615.687.6541 or Nashville Symphony and other local arts organizations celebrate artist Dale Chihuly The Nashville Symphony is one of three local arts institutions teaming up next month to celebrate the work of glass sculptor Dale Chihuly. Along with tandem exhibitions at Frist Center for the Visual Arts and Cheekwood Botanical Garden & Museum of Art, the Seattle-based artist’s resplendently colorful works will be featured on the stage of Laura Turner Concert Hall in a performance of Bartók’s opera Bluebeard’s Castle, taking place May 20-22. In addition, Chihuly will deliver a public lecture about his artwork at noon on Friday, May 21, at Schermerhorn Symphony Center; admission to the lecture is free, but tickets will be issued at the door to help accommodate crowd flow. Chihuly — whose work is also on permanent display at Vanderbilt University’s Eskind Biomedical





Library — is this country’s best-known glass sculptor, with an expansive body of artworks and public installations that evoke the forms of sea creatures and plant life. His designs for Bluebeard’s Castle are large-scale pieces that represent the castle doors in the age-old fairy tale of the bloodthirsty nobleman Bluebeard. Beginning next month, Nashvillians will also be able to see pieces from his various series, including Seaforms and Millefiori, in “Chihuly at the Frist,” a site-specific exhibit that runs at the Frist Center from May 9, 2010, to January 2, 2011. “Chihuly at Cheekwood,” meanwhile, will feature thousands of the artist’s hand-blown glass sculptures throughout the gardens at Cheekwood and within the Museum of Art. That exhibit, running May 25-October 31, will include the stunning neon-yellow 30-foot sculpture “Saffron Tower,” and Cheekwood will host a number of special programs during the show’s run. For more information on the citywide Chihuly celebration, visit Upcoming Hymn Sing invites audience to lend their voices Concertgoers will be invited to raise their voices in song on May 9, when Schermerhorn Symphony Center hosts the Fourth Annual Community Hymn Sing, a unique musical gathering featuring the Nashville Symphony and the Nashville Choir. Each year, the event also features some of the biggest stars in gospel and contemporary Christian music, and this year will be no exception. The event is the brainchild of Billy Ray Hearn, chairman of EMI Christian Music Group and the Sparrow Foundation, who launched the first Hymn Sing in 2007 as part of Schermerhorn Symphony Center’s inaugural season. He insists that if there’s one group of performers who make this event special, it’s the audience. That’s because the whole point of the Community Hymn Sing is for everyone to be part of the musical experience. “It’s a lot like going to a church celebration,” Hearn says. “We do have some special guests lined up, but part of what they’ll be doing is leading the congregation in singing along with the hymns — I don’t like to say ‘audience,’ because everyone who comes is a participant in the program.” The music will include sacred works of classical music, along with a number of beloved hymns. To encourage participation, a special commemorative hymnal with song lyrics will be distributed at the concert. There will be two performances of the Community Hymn Sing, at 2:30 and 7:30 p.m. on Sunday, May 9; tickets start at $12.50. The Nashville Symphony’s restaurant, Arpeggio, will be open before both performances, so come and celebrate Mother’s Day with a special meal and some uplifting music!

Steinway remains in the spotlight when gifted musician Ingrid Fliter performs later this month Ingrid Fliter seems to have an innate feel for Chopin. In his review of the Argentine-born pianist’s bravura performance at Carnegie Hall’s Ingrid Fliter Zankel Hall in 2007, Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times called her interpretations of Chopin’s Scherzo in E and Ballade in F minor “rhapsodic.” Fliter’s 2009 recording of the Polish master’s Complete Waltzes, meanwhile, earned a number of five-star reviews, including a rave in Gramophone magazine that ranked the set “among the finest Chopin recordings in years.” For her April 29-May 1 performances with the Nashville Symphony, Fliter will treat concertgoers to her imaginative reading of Chopin’s Concerto for Piano No. 2 in F minor, a work that is sure to showcase her great technical assurance and bold stylistic command. Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, Fliter began her formal piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. Shortly after making her concerto debut at Buenos Aires’ Teatro Colón opera house at the age of 16, she moved to Europe, where she studied in Germany and Italy, before going on to win the silver medal at the International Frédéric Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw in 2000. In 2006, Fliter became the fifth recipient of the prestigious Gilmore Artist Award, a juried $300,000 prize granted every four years to an emerging classical pianist of exceptional promise and skill. She was the first woman to win the award. Though Fliter has been a featured soloist with orchestras throughout Europe and the Americas, this will be her first appearance with the Nashville Symphony. —Bill Friskics-Warren





harmonic. “It’s not a piece that everybody plays,” explains Thibaudet, who later recorded Strauss’ composition with the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, for an album that came out on the Decca label in 2005. “After James Levine asked me to Jean-Yves Thibaudet perform it with him, I went out and bought a live recording that Martha Argerich did with the Berlin Philharmonic, and I was absolutely…in French you would say, ‘Your hair stands on end.’ I was completely blown away and said, ‘Why isn’t this piece played more often?’ “Then I started to realize how difficult it was,” Thibaudet adds with a laugh. “It is extremely difficult technically. The challenge has to do with the fact that Strauss was not an accomplished pianist. Which means it is not a pianistic composition; you always feel like you’re missing a finger or two when you are playing it. It’s very awkward. The challenge is to make it sound pianistic and fluid.” Thibaudet, though, seems to relish challenges, particularly as his relationship with classical and other forms of music deepens and evolves. “People sometimes ask me if I play diffidently now than before, and I say, ‘I don’t really remember.’ I don’t often listen to my old recordings. But once in a while I do. The general structure or idea of my playing really hasn’t changed much. I think it’s mostly the interpretation, the timings, but this just grows with you as a human being. You change and grow as a person. You have joys and sorrows and, over the course of the years, it changes your playing. “I think one of the most important changes took place when I was in my mid-20s and I started playing for singers,” he goes on to relate. “This entirely changed my approach and playing — having to breathe with a singer, or learning how to shape a phrase. Along with all of the wonderful things my teachers taught me, those were the most important lessons I learned.” Bill Friskics-Warren is a Nashville-based freelance writer

CHRISTOPHER CROSS, May 6-8 Hitmaker Christopher Cross joins the Nashville Symphony for the final concert of the 2009/10 Bank of America Pops Series. Together, they’ll revisit such memorable tunes as “Sailing,” “Arthur’s Theme (Best That You Can Do)” and “Ride Like the Wind,” and they’ll dig into Cross’ rich catalog of heartfelt, finely crafted songs.

LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC WITH GUSTAVO DUDAMEL, May 15 Led by the exciting young Music Director Gustavo Dudamel, one of the world’s finest orchestras performs one night only at Schermerhorn Symphony Gustavo Dudamel Center. Experience firsthand Dudamel’s infectious energy and exceptional artistry as the Los Angeles Philharmonic performs two major works: Leonard Bernstein’s Symphony No. 2 “The Age of Anxiety” and Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 in D major “Titan.” As a special highlight, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, who performs this month at the Schermerhorn, will return to perform as a soloist with the Philharmonic. BLUEBEARD’S CASTLE, May 20-22 As part of Nashville’s citywide celebration of famed glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, the Nashville Symphony closes the 2009/10 SunTrust Classical Series with a performance of Bartók’s opera Bluebeard’s Castle. This early masterpiece by the Hungarian composer recounts the classic fairy tale about a bloodthirsty nobleman and his castle of horrors. As Bluebeard’s young bride walks through the castle doors, represented here by a series of breathtaking 14-foot Chihuly sculptures, Bartók’s music builds in dramatic intensity, leading to a chilling conclusion. The evening opens with a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 1, the German composer’s first in a string of monumental works that would go on to change the course of classical music.

Aaron Jay Kernis Born on January 15, 1960, in Philadelphia; currently lives in New York City Newly Drawn Sky Kernis composed Newly Drawn Sky in 2005 on a commission from Welz Kauffman and the Ravinia Festival in honor of James Conlon’s first season as music director. Conlon led the Chicago Symphony in the premiere on July 1, 2005, at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, Illinois. These are the first performances by the Nashville Symphony. The score calls for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (3rd doubling English horn), 3 clarinets (2nd doubling E-flat clarinet, 3rd doubling bass clarinet), 3 bassoons (3rd doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, piano, harp and strings. estimated length: 17 minutes Aaron Jay Kernis came of age while the heady eclecticism of the 1980s and 1990s was in full swing. Newly emerging composers began to embrace a return to tonality; erstwhile “experimental” procedures such as electronic music merged with beats from the dance floor; and the romantic impulse was no longer derided as impermissible sentimentality. Kernis is part of the generation for whom pop-culture references and once-obscure works from the treasure trove of world music are natural features of the musical landscape. And like many of his peers, Kernis reclaimed the excitement of communicating through the power of a full orchestra. In his pantheon of influences, Mahler and Beethoven share a table with Hildegard of Bingen, Arvo Pärt and John Lennon. Musica Celestis, for example — perhaps the most frequently performed of Kernis’ works — draws on the medieval concept of the music of the spheres. (Kernis, in the tradition of Barber’s Adagio for Strings, extracted the piece from the slow movement of his First String Quartet.) Such engagement with the revered classical medium of the string quartet also characterizes

Kernis’ desire to explore the possibilities of traditional musical discourse in the wake of modernism. His Second String Quartet (titled Musica Instrumentalis) Aaron Jay Kernis garnered a Pulitzer Prize in 1998, and he was honored with the prestigious Grawemeyer Award in 2002 for Colored Field (which had a double incarnation as a concerto for cello and for English horn). Kernis has tackled weighty topics in his three symphonies to date, further sharpening a notable gift for orchestration as well. These include the minimalist-inflected First, titled Symphony in Waves; the Second Symphony, which was prompted by the composer’s reactions to images of the 1991 Gulf War; and the Symphony of Meditations, his Third, an ambitious choral work that was premiered last year by the Seattle Symphony. Yet Kernis doesn’t tie himself to overly specific programs. Newly Drawn Sky, an orchestral meditation that might be seen as belonging to the tradition of the tone poem, was spurred by his experience as a new father. The composer recalls that inspiration for the piece struck him on a summer night spent by the ocean with his 6-month-old twins, observing the shifting colors and character of a summer sky as twilight progressed. Newly Drawn Sky, writes Kernis, “reflects a constancy of change and flux musically and personally.” Visual images, whether in art or nature, often inspire a musical response from Kernis. The play between tension and resolution, between change and a sense of underlying permanence, is another recurrent theme in several of his works. The composer describes the development of the music in Newly Drawn Sky: “The piece begins with chromatically shifting three-note chords in the foreground that move upwards through the strings, then enlarge into the April




horns and winds as a background to a long, singing line in the violas. These chords and their shifts between diatonic and chromatic voice-leading are a fundamental element in the formation of the work. “Short bursts of quick, scherzando music which grow larger in orchestration alternate with continuations of the increasingly expressionistic singing melodic line and rhythmically punctuated brass and percussion outbursts. A chaotic culmination leads to a return of open fifths (the first notes of the piece) in the full orchestra and metal percussion. “The calm middle section of the work features serene melodic writing in the winds and solo trumpet, underpinned by undulating, slowmoving harmonies in the strings. The opening lyrical line returns in the strings and leads upwards to a brief interruption, a transformation of the scherzo-like music, which quickly vanishes into a full return of the opening music, then grows into a vast landscape of sound in the entire orchestra, leading upwards once again to a short, intense climax. Newly Drawn Sky closes with a simple, consonant coda, which gradually and lyrically calms the memory of tensions that have surfaced over the course of the work.” Richard Strauss Born on June 11, 1864, in Munich, Germany; died on September 8, 1949, in GarmischPartenkirchen, Germany Burleske in D minor for Piano and Orchestra, TrV 145 Strauss composed the Burleske between 1885 and 1886 and then revised it in 1889. The composer conducted the premiere on June 21, 1890, in Eisenach, Germany, with Eugen d’Albert performing the solo piano part. Strauss dedicated the score to d’Albert. These are the first performances by the Nashville Symphony. In addition to solo piano, the score calls for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings. estimated length: 19 minutes

Richard Strauss built his reputation around an unsurpassed gift for composing music that could tell a story — in his tone poems and operas alike. But framing his lengthy career are purely instrumental works with no story attached, drawing on “absolute” classical forms. The Burleske is one of these, written by the emerging artist shortly before he would turn his attention to programmatic topics. Like Mozart, Richard Strauss grew up under the influence of a powerful father figure who directed his musical education. Franz Strauss was a highly sought-after musician and served as the principal horn player of Munich’s Court Orchestra for nearly half a century. Franz encouraged the efforts of his son, who had been composing since childhood. The famous but temperamental conductor Hans von Bülow initially failed to see what all the fuss was about. (Not coincidentally, he and Franz had been at loggerheads over the heated topic of Wagner, whose music the ultra-conservative elder Strauss loathed but was required to play under Bülow’s baton in Munich.) Bülow was, however, won over when he got wind (so to speak) of the younger Strauss’ Serenade for 13 Wind Instruments, written Richard Strauss while the composer was still a teenager. Bülow now proclaimed the teenager a worthy heir to Brahms. He opened up significant opportunities that helped launch Strauss’ official career — most notably, by asking him to come on board as his assistant conductor with the Meiningen Orchestra in central Germany. Bülow had shaped the orchestra into one of the most enviable ensembles in Europe: Indeed, shortly after Strauss arrived to take up his assignment, Brahms showed up to rehearse the orchestra for the world premiere of his new Symphony No. 4. Despite being a greenhorn at the podium, Strauss would develop into one of April

the finest conductors of the era. He felt enormous respect for Bülow, from whom he learned immeasurably about the art of making music. The Burleske began as a way for the disciple to offer some token of gratitude, in the form of a scherzo for solo piano and orchestra. (Bülow was also an extraordinary pianist and in fact had given the world premiere of Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto a decade earlier, in Boston.) But Bülow grew irritated with the exorbitant technical demands of the piece — including chordal spans that were unflattering to his small hands — and denounced it as too bombastic and Lisztian, refusing to invest time in learning it. The Burleske required a virtuosity beyond Strauss’ own capacity as a pianist, so the score languished in his desk. A few years later, Strauss made his declaration of independence as a composer with the tone poem Don Juan. Meanwhile, the enormously gifted musician Eugen d’Albert — who had actually been a pupil of Liszt’s — learned about the neglected piece and offered to perform it. Strauss revised his score and retitled it Burleske, German for “parody” or “farce” (earlier, the title had simply been “Scherzo in D minor”). He programmed the premiere on the same concert that introduced his tone poem Death and Transfiguration. Strauss internalized some of Bülow’s skepticism about the piece and waited several years to publish it; yet 57 years later Burleske was scheduled on the last concert Strauss conducted. The idea of a giant Scherzo in D minor undoubtedly conjured thoughts of Beethoven’s Ninth, and, as with that monumental work, Strauss allocates a crucial role to the timpani, which opens the piece with a solo gesture. But the mood soon established is teasingly capricious rather than cosmic. The rhythmic pattern of those opening bars turns out to contain the central motto of the Burleske, which Strauss goes on to develop in ingenious ways. The piano scampers in impishly chromatic cascades but then turns reflective, caressing a three-note motif that anticipates the beginning of one of the Marschallin’s themes in Der Rosenkavalier. (Another melody remarkably foreshadows “Somewhere” from West Side Story.) Strauss’ orchestration is rich and color-

ful, but he also gives the piano plenty of time to monologue center stage, making the Burleske essentially a single-movement concerto. The soloist has a changeable personality, morphing from the high-jinks of a Till Eulenspiegel to the joyfulness of a rhapsodic lover. Strauss wrote Burleske while still under the Brahmsian spell (he would later reverse his opinion 180 degrees), so the echoes of the master’s piano concertos — most evident in the high rhetoric at the climax of the piece — are affectionate parody (if that’s what he was hinting in the title). Burleske’s final gestures — a duel to the death between the piano and timpani — are deliciously witty. Ottorino Respighi Born on July 9, 1879, in Bologna, Italy; died on April 18, 1936, in Rome Fontane di Roma (Fountains of Rome), S.126 Respighi composed Fountains of Rome between 1915 and 1916. Antonio Guarnieri conducted the premiere on March 11, 1917, at the Teatro Augusteo in Rome. The Nashville Symphony’s first performances were on October 27 and 28, 1958, with Music Director Guy Taylor. The score calls for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 French horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, cymbals, triangle, bell, glockenspiel, celesta, piano, organ, 2 harps and strings. estimated length: 15 minutes Ottorino Respighi himself was a fountain of productivity across all the genres, though his best-known works by far are the symphonic poems that so unforgettably evoke the spirit of his beloved Rome. Fountains of Rome was the first of these and a major breakthrough for the composer. Respighi, who grew up in Bologna, had spent formative years studying outside Italy. He eventually settled in Rome in 1913 to take up a position as composition professor, making the Eternal City home for the rest of his life. April

At the turn of the century, while still a student, Respighi landed a job as violist with the orchestra of the Imperial Theater in St. Petersburg. He benefited from this adventure by taking lessons from Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, one of the great masters of orchestral finesse (and a profoundly influential teacher who left his stamp on Stravinsky, among others). After a few seasons in Russia, the itinerant Respighi ended up in Berlin and other German music centers. He clearly came under the spell of such contemporary composers as Richard Strauss, whose orchestral brilliance by now spanned the concert hall and opera house. Although Respighi himself wrote some operas and other theater works such as ballets, his reputation rests overwhelmingly on the sequence of symphonic poems beginning with Fountains of Rome. He composed two “sequels” in the following decade: Pini di Roma (Pines of Rome) and Feste Romane (Roman Festivals). Each of the three, which together constitute a de facto trilogy celebrating Rome, is divided into four sections. Respighi’s astonishingly vivid portraits in sound are as effective as any stage work in conjuring a

sense of atmosphere. The four baroque fountains that are the subject of this first part of the trilogy come to life as distinct characters. There’s no narrative per se, beyond the progression of a single day in four phases, from dawn to dusk. Respighi writes that he intended to express “the sentiments and visions suggested… by four of Rome’s fountains contemplated at the hour in which their character is most in harmony with the surrounding landscape, or in which their beauty appears most impressive to the observer.” He begins his day at the Fountain of Valle Giulia, which is associated with a gently pastoral setting and a misty dawn as cattle pass in the background. Respighi’s painterly use of piping woodwinds and shimmering strings makes a dramatic foil for the full glory of morning that rises ever higher at the Triton Fountain. Its famous sculpture of the merman-like Triton (one of Baroqueera artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s masterpieces) strikes an orchestral pose, blowing his horn, as the composer writes, “like a joyous call, summoning troops of naiads and tritons, who come running up, pursing each other and mingling in a frenzied

dance between the jets of water.” At midday we stop by the Trevi Fountain, Rome’s largest, which inspires music of pomp and triumph. The nobly ascending theme and pealing brass suggest that Respighi had listened carefully to his Strauss (in the opening section, Straussians may have recognized touches of Der Rosenkavalier in the orchestration as well). The mythological figure in question here is Neptune as his chariot rides across the water, followed in turn by sirens and tritons as the procession recedes into the distance. The composer’s observations conclude with a touch of pathos experienced at sunset at the Villa Medici Fountain. The fourth section balances the first in terms of length; moreover, it echoes how the work began, with the presence of nature in the background. Here this takes the form of nostalgically warbling birds. Tolling bells accentuate the sad tint of the music, which fades with a marvelous evocation of dying light and enveloping night. Samuel Barber Born on March 9, 1910, in West Chester, Pennsylvania; died on January 23, 1981, in New York City Symphony No. 1, Op. 9 (in One Movement) Barber composed the Symphony in One Movement between late 1935 and February 1936 while living in Rome, later revising the score in 1942. Bernardino Molinari led the premiere with the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome on December 13, 1936. The first American performance was given by Artur Rodzinski and The Cleveland Orchestra on January 22, 1937. The Nashville Symphony’s first performances took place on October 7 and 8, 1994, with Music Director Kenneth Schermerhorn. The score calls for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, bass drum, cymbals, harp and strings. estimated length: 20 minutes

Despite the perennial popularity of his Adagio for Strings, Samuel Barber was hardly just a one-hit wonder. The composer’s days as a prodigy student at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia foreshadowed a brilliant career, and he soon made good on that promise. In his 20s, Barber produced a series of compositions that established his name internaSamuel Barber tionally. These early works already revealed his distinctive voice, which is characterized by an intense lyricism that seems to come directly from the heart. The composer’s brand of American romanticism proved increasingly at odds with the taste of his modernist contemporaries. But Barber, whose centenary was marked just last month, rose quickly to the top as a young composer (and the pendulum has since swung back in his favor). His Symphony No. 1 became the first piece by an American to be played at the ultra-prestigious Salzburg Festival in 1937. It was on that occasion that Toscanini — not exactly known for his advocacy of new American music — first heard this highly gifted young composer. Deeply impressed, Toscanini requested some new pieces to perform with the fledgling NBC Symphony radio orchestra. One of these was the Adagio for Strings, which Barber created by reworking the slow movement of his First String Quartet for string orchestra. Its premiere over the radio waves in November 1938 solidified his fame. The Symphony is the work of an American abroad. Barber composed the score while living in Italy as a recipient of the American Prix de Rome. His confidence in working with a full orchestral canvas is remarkable. Barber was notoriously painstaking as a composer, and he had little previous experience writing for orchestra: the sparkling Overture to The School for Scandal (1931) and the tone poem Music for a Scene from April





Shelley (1933). Despite its numbering, this is the only “official” symphony in Barber’s catalogue, which also includes three symphony-like pieces he labeled Essays for Orchestra. Barber did write a Second Symphony in 1944 and even recorded it, but later decided to disown that work (though he did recycle some of its music for his piece Night Flight). The obvious model for a compact, singlemovement symphony at the time was the Seventh (and last) Symphony of Sibelius, premiered in 1924. And there’s even a Sibelian majesty to some of the rhetoric here. Barber deftly reconfigures the conventional sonata form expected for the first movement of a symphony so that it presents, the composer wrote, “a synthetic treatment of the four-movement classical symphony.” The work begins with a dramatic call to attention, leading immediately into a first theme that will prove easily malleable in later contexts. Two more themes follow: one mournful and inward (first intoned by English horn and viola) and the other an exhortation punctuated by brassy splendor. An eventful development builds in excitement, but rather than resolve into the recapitulation, Barber’s orchestra cascades into a scherzo, whipped into shape with fragments of the opening theme. This segues into a serene but moody section (marked Andantino in the score), which is based on a drawn-out manifestation of the second theme. Barber’s orchestration highlights the oboe (uncannily prefiguring his sublime final work, the Canzonetta for Oboe) and displays the composer’s affinity for elegiac lyricism. The music grows to a climax and then subsides for the finale, which is formulated as a passacaglia — a brief motif persistently repeated in the bass (and drawn from the ever-malleable first theme). On top of this, Barber introduces a progression of ideas, including the third of the opening themes, to complete the postponed recapitulation. The Symphony ends where it began, in a grand and tragic gesture of E minor. — Thomas May is the program annotator for the Nashville Symphony and writes regularly about music and theater.

Artist Bio STANLEY CLARKE, bass

Bassist Stanley Clarke was barely out of his teens when he exploded into the jazz world in 1971. Fresh out of the Philadelphia Academy of Music, he arrived in New York City and landed jobs with famous bandleaders such as Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, Joe Henderson, Pharaoh Sanders, Gil Evans, Stan Getz and Chick Corea. All of these musicians immediately recognized Clarke’s ferocious dexterity and complete musicality on the acoustic bass. Not only was he an expert at crafting bass lines and functioning as a timekeeper, but the young prodigy also possessed a sense of lyricism and melody. Clarke envisioned the bass as a viable, melodic solo instrument positioned at the front of the stage, and he was uniquely qualified to take it there. That vision became a reality when Clarke and Corea formed the seminal electric jazz/fusion band Return To Forever. RTF was a showcase for each of the quartet’s strong musical personaliBAGH/TPAC ties, composing prowess and instrumental

Then, in 1974, Clarke started the ’70s bass revolution and paved the way for all bassists/soloists/ bandleaders to follow when he released his Stanley Clarke album, which featured the hit single “Lopsy Lu.” Two years later, he released School Days, an album whose title track is now a bona fide bass anthem. Clarke became the first bassist in history to headline tours, sell out shows worldwide and craft albums that achieved gold status. At 25, he was already regarded as a pioneer in the jazz fusion movement. He was also the first bassist in history to double on acoustic and electric bass with equal virtuosity, power and fire. In his ongoing efforts to push the bass to new limits, he invented two new instruments, the piccolo bass and the tenor bass. Clarke’s creativity has been recognized and rewarded in every way imaginable: gold and platinum records, GRAMMY® Awards, Emmy Awards, placement on virtually every readers’ and critics’ poll in existence, and more. Clarke’s latest recording, Jazz in the Garden, is the bassist’s first acoustic jazz trio album and features Japanese pia11/2/09 9:56 AM Page 1 nist Hiromi Uehara and drummer Lenny White.

about the Program

Roots music is the theme for the Nashville Symphony’s latest Bank of America Pops Series program. The evening begins with folk-inspired orchestral pieces, including a selection from Antonin Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances, which combine the rhythms of traditional folk dance with the Czech composer’s original melodies. The graceful, rather formal music may not sound “folksy,” but it was actually inspired by the starodávny, a Moravian walking dance. Rumanian Rhapsody draws on the diverse musical traditions of composer Georges Enesco’s native country. His ornate composition evolves through moods ranging from pastoral to romantic, before breaking into exuberant Gypsy dance rhythms. Nashville audiences should have no trouble recognizing the folk roots of “Rocky Top,” a song that mimics traditional Appalachian music so well that it’s easy to forget it was actually penned in 1967 by veteran songwriters Boudleaux and Felice Bryant, who wrote numerous hits for acts like the Everly Brothers and Buddy Holly. Cherryholmes will bring their neo-traditional bluegrass sound to Laura Turner Concert Hall for the second half of the program. This six-member family band has won wide acclaim — and four GRAMMY® nominations — for their original music infused with a pure bluegrass spirit. Tight, hard-driving instrumentals like “The Nine Yards” give them ample opportunity to show off their virtuosity, but they do full justice to the traditions of bluegrass song as well. “Bleeding,” a classic lover’s lament, has all the elements of a Bill Monroe-style ballad, with close harmonies, a deft mandolin solo and vaguely gruesome imagery (“You’re bleeding my broken heart”). “Goodbye,” another love-gone-wrong song, is one of the band’s occasional forays into old-time country. For all their mastery of bluegrass fundamentals, Cherryholmes are a musically versatile band, tossing elements of jazz and Celtic music into their compositions. The Celtic influence shines through in “Broken,” and it can be heard in the lilting melodies of “Mansker





Spree” and “O’Caughlin’s Reel” as well. Legendary bluegrass fiddler Kenny Baker once said that “bluegrass is nothing but a hillbilly version of jazz,” and Cherryholmes take that notion to heart with jazz-influenced songs like “Don’t Believe” — a dark, moody tune with a sensuous fiddle line and unexpected shifts in tempo. “Sumatra,” a lively instrumental featuring fiddle and mandolin, contains an echo of the great jazz violinist JeanLuc Ponty. Stepping away from their original compositions, Cherryholmes pay further tribute to jazz with a rendition of “Minor Swing,” the Gypsy jazz standard by Django Reinhardt, and they nod to the history of country music with “Arizona Yodeler,” made famous in the 1940s by another family act, the DeZurik Sisters. The band’s bluegrass heritage is acknowledged with a Lester Flatt song, “I’ll Never Shed Another Tear.” And speaking of stepping, the members of Cherryholmes like to show off a few dance moves during their famously energetic shows. Audiences are sure to be delighted by this remarkable, gifted family. — Nashville-based freelance writer Maria Browning is pops program annotator for the Nashville Symphony

Artist Bio

CHERRYHOLMES Jere and Sandy Cherryholmes met in their church, married and began raising a family of six children. In 1999, their eldest daughter, Shelly, died in her sleep from respiratory failure. The family heard about a nearby bluegrass festival and decided to go, to lift their spirits. On the way home, Jere said, “What we really need right now is to do something special with our kids. Let’s start a bluegrass group.” Cia (banjo), B.J. (fiddle), Skip (guitar) and Molly (fiddle) were assigned instruments. “Well, if you asked them, they would have all picked drums,” Sandy laughs. What started out as a desire to draw the family closer together during their time of sorrow developed into a legitimate band. Cherryholmes won a few

contests, promoters kept calling and their reputation spread. By 2003, Cherryholmes had made their first appearances on the Grand Ole Opry, Ernest Tubb’s Midnite Jamboree, the Country Music Association’s CMA Music Festival and the International Bluegrass Music Association’s (IBMA) Fan Fest. Pretty soon, everyone was buzzing about Cherryholmes. Their growing popularity caught the attention of Ricky Skaggs, who signed the band. Their self-titled debut entered Billboard’s Top Bluegrass Albums chart at No. 3. When nominations were announced for the 2005 IBMA Awards, Cherryholmes appeared as nominees for Emerging Artist of the Year and for Entertainer of the Year, making them the first act in IBMA’s 20-year history to be nominated in both categories. When Cherryholmes were named Entertainer of the Year, the entire audience leapt to its feet. Their first GRAMMY® nomination capped off an amazing year, implying that the best was yet to come. Recent GRAMMY® nominations affirm Cherryholmes’ flair for creating music that demands attention. All six band members pull their creative ideas together, forming a sound and a style that is unmistakably Cherryholmes. Jere concludes, “I heard someone say that bluegrass music has to change or evolve, or it will die. I don’t think it needs to be changed. It just needs new breath. I feel like maybe I’m offering something like that with my family.”

Artist Bio

For nearly 30 years, the Philadelphiabased Enchantment Theatre Company has been thrilling audiences with its innovative and visually dramatic family theater productions. The company was founded in 1979 by Jennifer Blatchley Smith and Landis Smith, both actors and playwrights, and expanded to an artistic partnership with resident director Leslie Reidel in 1995. Enchantment Theatre Company’s distinctive artistry combines masked actors, magic, music and more. Their original and inspiring productions have served more than a million children and their families across America and around the world. At the heart of the company’s productions is the imaginative telling of fables. The creative process begins with the selection of a classic fable, one that can inspire, challenge and enrich its audience. Next, the story is adapted for the stage, which begins with the Smiths and Reidel writing a scenario of the story, while production designer C. David Russell sketches masks, puppets, costumes and props. The artistic team choreographs the piece in collaboration with performers using mockup masks, costumes, props and scenic elements. Then the designs are turned over to professional mask makers, puppet and prop makers and costumers who build the final production elements. The shows create enchanting worlds by skillfully blending masked actors with puppets, illusions, pantomime and music. Since its inception in 1979, the Enchantment Theatre Company has toured all over the world, including performances at the Brooklyn Academy of Music and Lincoln Center in New York City; the John F. Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.; Philadelphia’s Academy of Music and the

Kimmel Center; and in the Far East, performing in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore. The company has appeared with major orchestras nationwide, including those of Atlanta, Baltimore, Cleveland, Houston, Minnesota, Philadelphia and Seattle, and with the Boston Pops on the PBS Christmas at the Pops television special. Other Enchantment Theatre Company productions include Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella, Pinocchio, The Velveteen Rabbit, The Snow Queen and The Adventures of Harold and the Purple Crayon. This production of Scheherazade was created as a co-commission with The Cleveland Orchestra, supported by the National Endowment for the Arts. About ‘Scheherazade’ Scheherazade’s thousand-and-one tales are told to heal her Sultan and to save his kingdom. Through these fantastic stories, the Sultan experiences adventures both great and small and discovers his true capacity to love. Music, like theater, has the power to illuminate and transform. As a theater company whose work is primarily movement-based, Enchantment Theatre Company welcomes the incorporation of music into its productions: It supports and enriches the storytelling and becomes another voice woven into the narrative. The orchestra will evoke Scheherazade musically as the actors evoke it dramatically, using masks, puppets, magic and movement. The company hopes that these combined efforts will move the audience to discover this marvelous tale in a new and meaningful way.

Frédéric Chopin Born on March 1, 1810, in Żelazowa Wola, Poland (west of Warsaw); died on October 17, 1849, in Paris Concerto No. 2 in F minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 21 Chopin composed his Second Piano Concerto between 1828 and 1830 and performed as soloist at the premiere on March 17 of that year in Warsaw. The Nashville Symphony’s first performance of the work took place on January 29, 1952, at War Memorial Auditorium with Music Director Guy Taylor and soloist Guiomar Novaes. In addition to solo piano, the score calls for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, trumpet, bass trombone, timpani and strings. estimated length: 30 minutes Last month marked the 200th anniversary of the birth of Frédéric Chopin — or, to pay proper homage to his Polish roots, the man christened Fryderyck Franciszek Chopin. Regardless of special commemorations, he has remained perennially beloved since he first became famous. Chopin tends to be identified with a quintessentially Romantic temperament, but he belongs in a league of his own: the master of a highly nuanced style that draws on relatively few influences from other sources. No other composer of any era has achieved a comparably long-lasting stature and popularity by concentrating, as Chopin did, on a single instrument. Liszt considered the piano to represent “the microcosm of music.” For Chopin, the keyboard opened up an entire universe of expression that was, for the most part, sufficient in itself. He exploited the instrument’s resources with unbounded imagination, becoming a virtuoso of self-expression. This goes a long way toward explaining his enduring popularity. Few composers can match the sense of sheer intimacy we get from Chopin. Yet before he left Poland and, in 1831, settled in Paris, Chopin first made his name in that quintessentially public forum, the concert hall. He had already started performing as a child prodigy





and, in his late teens, graduated from the Warsaw Conservatory. Chopin then went on to give a series of highprofile concerts in Vienna and Warsaw. Frédéric Chopin The small handful of works Chopin wrote for piano and orchestra dates from this youthful period. They were necessary calling cards for a pianist-composer to launch a career. The first of these, completed in 1827, became his Op. 2: the brilliant Variations on “Là ci darem la mano,” to the famous tune from Don Giovanni by Mozart (one of his idols). It provoked Robert Schumann’s much-quoted rave a few years later: “Hats off, gentlemen, a genius!” Chopin’s two piano concertos were similarly tailored to showcase his gifts at the keyboard for a concert-going public. At the same time, their distinctively refined sensibility gives a remarkable foretaste of the artist who would mature in his Parisian exile. The Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor is, despite its number, the first of Chopin’s concertos. It was a huge artistic and commercial success at the official premiere at Warsaw’s National Theater in March 1830, and was soon followed by a repeat performance. Chopin immediately began a fresh concerto, which he introduced that fall as part of his final Warsaw concert. This piece, the Piano Concerto No. 1 in E minor, was published before the F minor Concerto — hence the switcheroo in numbering. It seems that Chopin even planned a third concerto but abandoned it after completing only the first movement. He later published this as a work for solo piano, the Allegro de Concert. (A few composers since Chopin’s time have tried their hand at orchestrating the Allegro as a quasi“Third” Piano Concerto.) Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto treats the featured instrument as more than protagonist: It’s the gravitational center for the music’s flow

and development. The orchestra, meanwhile, essentially serves to create the context for the musings of the soloist. The traditional exposition for orchestra alone, at the beginning, introduces a dichotomy that will be explored at length from the keyboard throughout the first movement. On the one side are the grand rhetorical gestures of a classical concerto, with their majestic punctuations; on the other is an introspective lyricism, as represented by the second theme (played by the woodwinds). So far, this is all standard — the expected contrast of thematic material. But soon enough, the piano co-opts and transforms both elements into its own richly elaborated language. The rest of the movement is filtered through the instrument’s point of view. The later Chopin is especially prefigured in the radiant second-movement Larghetto, set in a serene A-flat major. The composer himself drew attention to the music as an expression of his hidden love for a soprano and fellow student at the Conservatory, Konstancja Gladkowska — who likewise inspired the Romanze of the Concerto No. 1. “Six months have passed, and I have not yet exchanged a syllable with her of whom I dream every night,” he confessed to a close friend. (Not until the time of his farewell concert in Warsaw did Chopin find the courage to approach her.) A few years before Chopin would meet the Italian opera composer Vincenzo Bellini, his affinity for the long-spun, rhapsodic line of bel canto melody perfected by Bellini is already in evidence here. Chopin’s tracery, never mere ornament, prolongs the sense of ecstatic caress. A dusky mood of doubt intrudes only briefly in the middle section, with its faint reminiscence of the first movement. Near the end, solo phrases from the bassoon interweave in delicate, intimate counterpoint. In contrast to the second movement’s otherworldly transport, Chopin grounds the Concerto’s closing movement with a rhythmically lively rondo, its main theme dancingly poised. Playing col legno (with the wood of the bow), the strings introduce another tune that is flavored by the Polish dance known as the mazurka. A sudden shift from minor to major, reinforced by the horn’s signal-like call, clears the way for an animated coda.

Gustav Mahler Born on July 7, 1860, in Kaliště, Bohemia; died on May 18, 1911, in Vienna Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp minor Mahler composed his Symphony No. 5 in the summers of 1901 and 1902 and finished the final copy in 1903, later revising the orchestration numerous times. He led the Gürzenich Orchestra of Cologne in the premiere on October 18, 1904. The American premiere was given by the Cincinnati Orchestra under Frank van der Stucken on March 24, 1905. The Nashville Symphony’s first performances took place on December 14 and 15, 1970, with Music Director Thor Johnson. The score calls for 4 flutes (2 doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (3rd doubling English horn), 3 clarinets (2nd doubling E-flat clarinet, 3rd doubling bass clarinet), 3 bassoons (3rd doubling contrabassoon), 6 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, bass drum, snare drum, cymbals, triangle, tam-tam, whip, glockenspiel, harp and strings estimated length: 72 minutes Mahler once claimed that it would take the public at least 50 years after his death to begin to make sense of his music. It turned out to be an amazingly accurate prediction. But could Mahler have foreseen how central a figure he would become to the concert hall by the turn of the millennium? As it happens, what prompted his remark about being misunderstood was the negative reception given the Symphony No. 5 upon its premiere in Cologne in October 1904. Yet the Mahler Fifth now ranks as the most popular of his symphonies, containing his best-known music in the Adagietto movement. The conductor Bruno Walter — Mahler’s own protégé, who was present at that very first performance — saw the Fifth as beginning a “new phase of [Mahler’s] development.” He called the symphony a “masterpiece that shows the composer at the zenith of his life, his powers and his craft.” April




Certainly, the work reflects a critical turning point in Mahler’s personal and creative life. Early in 1901, in the months before he began composing the Fifth, he’d suffered a nearly fatal hemorrhage. That close brush with death left its stamp on the music, as did the sense of a new lease on life. He started work on the new symphony at his idyllic summer retreat in southern Austria. The Fifth covers a far-ranging emotional span — from preoccupations with mortality to a recharged zest for life. By itself, this is no different from the ambitious embrace of Mahler’s preceding symphonies, which transformed the genre into all-inclusive epics. But with the Fifth, Mahler also refines his musical language and technique toward something more abstract, abandoning explicit descriptive programs and the use of sung texts. The Second, Third and Fourth Symphonies had called on the human voice to sing poetry — in particular, selections from the German folk poetry collection known as Des Knaben Wunderhorn (“The Youth’s Magic Horn”). And while the First Symphony is entirely instrumental, Mahler mapped out various programmatic descriptions

when he introduced that work. With his Fifth, though, Mahler makes a bold move away from the prevailing late-Romantic bias for explicit program music. The enchantment and external associations that marked the Wunderhorn style give way to a more self-contained and densely woven language for the orchestra alone. Not that Mahler here entirely renounces his earlier approach. In fact, the famous opening trumpet fanfare alludes directly to a similar call in the first movement of the Fourth Symphony. Moreover, the Fifth incorporates several references to Mahler songs: not only the world of Wunderhorn, but also his strikingly different settings of Romantic poet Friedrich Rückert, including the Rückert Songs and the Kindertotenlieder (“Songs on the Death of Children”). He even gives the first movement a title, “Funeral March” — the first of several “programmatic” elements that might be said to be encoded in the Fifth. What’s different here is that Mahler focuses intensely on the thematic and coloristic possibilities inherent within the material itself, using purely musical techniques of development, counterpoint, timbre and the like. A major clue pointing to this concentration on internal coherence can be found in the work’s overall architecture and symmetry. Mahler divides the Fifth’s five movements into three major sections: Part I is made up of the first two movements, which contain cross-references; Part II is the Scherzo, the longest single movement but the shortest of the three parts; and the Adagietto and Finale (also interlinked) form Part III, which mirrors Part I in total length. This self-reinforcing, arch-like structure has also been compared to an hourglass. The use of cross-references between movements serves as a powerful unifying device. The opening Funeral March is driven by two alternating ele-

ments. First is the trumpet’s summoning fanfare, with its signature triplets, which the orchestra takes up with steely, almost belligerent determination. The second element is a grief-stricken threnody that seems as if it could continue to unreel forever. Suddenly, in a passionate storm of protest and denial, an entirely new episode intervenes — the trumpet’s call now morphing into cries of torment. The pattern of the first two elements returns, before another episode brings a variant of the threnody, this time infused with a new strain of anxiety. Mahler magnifies this in a climactic outpouring, but then graphically allows the very fabric of the music to decompose. All of the preceding, we now come to realize, was a massive introduction to the second movement — which serves, in essence, as the symphony’s “real” first movement. The Funeral March also turns out to be a source for some of the material in this next movement — the first example of cross-referencing between movements. With a title that translates as “Moving stormily, with great vehemence,” the second movement begins in a riot of turbulent gestures reminiscent of the tormented outburst in the Funeral March. After this opening theme subsides, the second theme is even more apparently drawn from the later, more angst-ridden version of the first movement’s lament. From these core materials, Mahler fashions a movement of restless, compulsive development. It reaches violent extremes of despair. Yet — as suddenly as the shocking upheaval in the March — Mahler engineers the appearance of a brief, hopeful brass chorale, foreshadowing a more triumphant statement from the full orchestra. The entire event prefigures the climax to come in the finale, but here remains a fleetingly optimistic mirage. As the chorale is swept away by more troubled music, its negation only intensifies the bleakness of Part I, which ends in a process of fragmentation similar to that of the Funeral March. The Scherzo at the Symphony’s midpoint — with its turn from the minor keys of the first two movements (C-sharp and A minor, respectively) to the tonality of D major — signals a radical change in mood, to one of cheerful acceptance. The transitory brass chorale had hinted at the

possibility of escape from the tragic atmosphere prevailing thus far, but Mahler now presents a sustained reprieve. Notice, too, how this gesture, situGustav Mahler ated at such a pivotal point in the structure, amplifies the work’s emotional complexity. Too often, the Fifth is characterized as a journey “from darkness to light.” While that’s true in a very broad sense, reducing the entire work to such a scheme tends to downplay the central importance that Mahler gives this movement. The Scherzo is much more than a passing interlude or a “breather” between weightier matters. Instead, Mahler expands it in scale and crowds it with thrilling detail. In contrast to the funeral cortege of the opening, the Scherzo pulses with vibrant dance, ranging from village square to genteel ballroom to an alpine vastness. Four horns announce a three-note motif at the start, which serves as a kind of anchor amid the constantly evolving swirl of the music, while another horn emerges as a principal character in this drama. In the first of the Scherzo’s two trio sections, Mahler has fun adding the sounds of the sophisticated Viennese waltz to the mix, following the humbler associations of the country dance known as the landler in the Scherzo’s main part. The second trio — where the solo horn takes center stage — brings the echoing sounds of nature. The rate of variation among these three main ideas dazzles and bewilders as Mahler weaves all of them together. His contrapuntal art reaches maximum intensity in the coda — a foretaste of what is to come in the Finale. Detached from the Symphony, the Adagietto has gone on to have a remarkable “afterlife” of its own. For example, Leonard Bernstein famously conducted it at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York during the funeral Mass for Robert Kennedy in 1968. Because of its use in film and as a April




musical memorial in times of collective grieving, the Adagietto has acquired a somber reputation as world-weary, death-obsessed music — a return to the funereal tone that opened the Symphony, but now with an attitude of peaceful acceptance. One reason for those melancholy associations is that the Adagietto has something in common with the resigned atmosphere of “Ich bin der Welt abhanden gekommen” (“I Have Become Lost to the World”), one of the Rückert settings Mahler wrote during the same summer he began the Fifth. Yet Willem Mengelberg, a conductor and champion of Mahler’s music (and a close friend), claimed that Mahler’s inspiration was his Alma Mahler soon-to-be wife, Alma (see sidebar at left). Mahler aficionado Mahler in Love Gilbert Kaplan gave that interpretation new currency with an While he was writing the influential essay he published in the early 1990s. The blissful Fifth Symphony, Mahler met timelessness of this music can indeed be heard as a kind of Alma Schindler, a ravishing transcendent serenade. In any case, the Adagietto (in F major) and brilliant young Viennese provides a crucial contrast after the anguish of the opening and beauty. Her father had been the hectic bustle that ended the Scherzo. Mahler’s orchestration a noted landscape painter; emphasizes the contrast. Instead of the full palette of the very her stepfather cofounded the large ensemble used elsewhere in the Fifth, he restricts himself Secessionist art movement. in the Adagietto to strings and harp. Yet Mahler’s scoring Mahler, nearly twice Alma’s deploys a striking range of shades to shape the music’s balance age, married her in March 1902. of introspection and passion. He completed his draft of the The Adagietto sets the outgoing animation of the Finale in symphony that summer and greater relief, serving as a kind of prelude — a connection echoing then invited his new bride that between the first two movements. Mahler uses the sustained to hear him play through the note of a solo horn to bridge the two movements, at the same time just-finished composition at reminding us of the extroverted world of the Scherzo, which will the piano. The Adagietto may now become intensified. A “Rondo-Finale,” as he calls this last have been written as a private movement, suggests a lighthearted sendoff. As he did in the Scherlove letter while Mahler was zo, however, Mahler revises our expectations of something modest courting Alma. to give us a movement of ample dimensions instead. Yet there’s nothing remotely ponderous about this Finale. By the same token, Mahler — who had recently been inspired by a study of Bach — employs a dazzling amount of counterpoint without ever sounding dry or “academic.” Quite the contrary: This is music that constantly blooms, shifting the most “throwaway” fragments of ideas into splendid new shapes. Mahler is giddy with humor and the fertility of invention. Thus he even weaves speeded-up fragments from the ethereal Adagietto into the argument so that they seem perfectly at home in this new context. This borrowing from the music of the Adagietto again mirrors what Mahler did in Part I, with its thematic sharing between the two movements. His ultimate cross-reference in the Symphony arrives near the end. Here he gives us a vindication of the hopeful chorale from the second movement: A variant of that music now blazes out in full affirmation. Mahler planted an earlier hint for this at the beginning of the Finale, in the clarinet’s tune, which is the source for this glorious variation on the original chorale. But he then appends an irreverent and rollicking coda — a last gust of anarchic exhilaration. — Thomas May is the program annotator for the Nashville Symphony and writes regularly about music and theater.

INGRID FLITER, piano In January 2006, Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter was named the recipient of the 2006 Gilmore Artist Award, making her only the fifth pianist to have been so honored. The Gilmore Artist Award is presented to an exceptional pianist who possesses broad and profound musicianship and charisma, and who desires and can sustain a career as a major international concert artist. Fliter made her American orchestra debut with the Atlanta Symphony in January 2006, just days after the announcement of her Gilmore Award. Since then, she has made debuts with the L.A. Philharmonic; the San Francisco, St. Louis, Toronto, Detroit and Dallas symphonies; the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa; the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra; and at the Mostly Mozart, Grant Park, Aspen, Ravinia and Blossom festivals. Equally busy as a recitalist, Fliter has recently performed in New York at Carnegie Hall’s Zankel Hall and at the Metropolitan Museum; in Chicago, San Francisco, Detroit and Baltimore; and for the Van Cliburn Foundation in Ft. Worth, Texas. Highlights of her 2009/10 season include debuts with the Minnesota Orchestra and Houston and Seattle symphonies; reengagements with The Cleveland Orchestra and the St. Louis, National and Toronto symphonies; and recitals in Boston, Montreal, Chicago’s Orchestra Hall and New York’s Town Hall. Recent and upcoming engagements abroad include appearances with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Israel Philharmonic and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic orchestras; the BBC Symphony, Royal Scottish National and Gulbenkian orchestras; recitals in Paris, Barcelona and Milan; a tour of Spain with the Vienna Chamber Orchestra; and her eighth tour of Japan. Born in Buenos Aires in 1973, Fliter began her piano studies in Argentina with Elizabeth Westerkamp. In 1992, she moved to Europe, where she continued her studies with Vitaly Margulis at the Hochschule für Musik Freiburg; with Carlos Bruno in Rome; and with Franco Scala and Boris Petrushansky at the Academy “Incontri col Maestro” in Imola, Italy. Fliter began play-

ing public recitals at age 11 and made her professional orchestra debut at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires at age 16. She went on to win prizes at the Cantu International Ingrid Fliter Competition and the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Italy, and in 2000 was awarded the silver medal at the Frédéric Chopin Competition in Warsaw. An exclusive EMI recording artist, Fliter released her first CD, an all-Chopin disc, in April 2008. Her second EMI recording of the complete Chopin waltzes was released in the fall of 2009. Live recordings of Fliter performing works by Beethoven and Chopin at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, as well as a DVD of a recital at the Miami International Piano Festival, are available on the VAI Audio label.
