I am honored to continue the legacy of artistic excellence established by the late Kenneth Schermerhorn, and I invite you to join me for what promises to be a great season.

elcome to the Nashville Symphony’s fourth season at Schermerhorn Symphony Center! This month is a particularly exciting time for me, because it marks my official start as the orchestra’s music director. I am honored to continue the legacy of artistic excellence established by the late Kenneth Schermerhorn, for whom this beautiful building was named, and I invite you to join me and the orchestra for what promises to be a great season. Our season begins on a high note with the Nashville Symphony’s AllBeethoven Opening Night on September 11. Pianist Lang Lang — quite possibly the best-known classical artist on the planet right now — will join the orchestra for a concert devoted to one of classical music’s greatest composers. Lang Lang’s dramatic performance style has earned him legions of fans, but this gifted pianist has built his reputation on first-class musicianship and a commitment to nurturing young talent, and we are thrilled to host his first-ever appearance in Nashville. The following evening promises another concert experience unlike any other in Nashville. Mandolinist Sam Bush, Dobro player Jerry Douglas and soprano Karen Parks are just a few of the truly outstanding guest artists who will join us for Classical Americana. Each of these performers is rooted in the great American folk tradition, but they’re also open to a wide range of influences, from classical to world music to jazz. When they take the stage with the Nashville Symphony and Resident Conductor Albert-George Schram, they’ll explore the many different ways that classical music, country music, blues and other homegrown styles are all linked. Considering our orchestra’s reputation for championing the music of American composers, and considering our city’s identity as a wellspring of American music, I can’t think of a better venue for this concert. Presented by First Tennessee, our opening weekend is just the beginning of an eventful month at the Schermerhorn. On September 17-19, I’ll be conducting the SunTrust Classical Series weekend celebrating the music of Russia’s greatest composers, including two of the most beloved works in the repertoire, Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1. The following week, the Bank of America Pops Series will welcome Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb, both enduring figures in popular music. September also marks another milestone for me: This month, the Naxos label will release my first recording with the Nashville Symphony, featuring composer Michael Daugherty’s Metropolis Symphony and Deus ex Machina. Both of these pieces were recorded in Laura Turner Concert Hall, and if you were here for the performances, you know just how vibrant and engaging Daugherty’s music is. I’m proud to say that I already feel completely at home here in Nashville. I’ve had the privilege of conducting at the Schermerhorn many times over the past few years, and I can tell you that it is a great joy to stand in front of the musicians of the Nashville Symphony. Not only are the members of our orchestra immensely talented, but they are also among the most professional and disciplined musicians I have worked with. It is an equal pleasure to perform for you, our wonderful patrons. Thank you for making me feel so welcome, and for supporting this amazing orchestra. We have much to look forward to together.

New CDs show two sides of the Nashville Symphony

Over the past decade, the Nashville Symphony has become one of the most active recording orchestras in the country, and this month the ensemble adds to its sizable discography with a new release on Naxos featuring two works by composer Michael Daugherty, Metropolis Symphony and Deus ex Machina. A piano concerto inspired by trains of the future and the past, Deus ex Machina was co-commissioned by the Nashville Symphony and recorded at the Schermerhorn in June 2007, with soloist Terrence Wilson. Metropolis Symphony was recorded at the hall in November 2008 and pays Michael Daugherty & Giancarlo Guerrero tribute to the American comic book hero Superman; the London Times called it a “Symphonie Fantastique for our times.” Both pieces were conducted by Giancarlo Guerrero, making this the orchestra’s first recording with its new music director. Both works display Daugherty’s full range of musical expression, which frequently draws on themes and motifs from American history and popular culture. Metropolis Symphony’s fourth movement, “Oh, Lois!,” for example, uses lively rhythms and unusual percussion to evoke comic book sound effects. According to the League of American Orchestras, Daugherty is one of this country’s 10 most performed living composers, and this latest release promises to bring even more attention and acclaim for his work. The composer will be in town on September 30 for a special CD signing and release celebration; check the Symphony’s website for details. This isn’t the orchestra’s only new recording. Last month, the Symphony also released a collaboration with the cowboy group Riders In The Sky. ‘Lassoed Live’ at the Schermerhorn is a tuneful, rollicking collection of songs celebrating the American West, including the Sons of the Pioneers’ “Tumbling Tumbleweeds.” The CD was recorded with Assistant Conductor Kelly Corcoran in February, when the group appeared as part of the Symphony’s Bank of America Pops Series. For this joint venture, the Symphony worked collaboratively with Riders to produce, distribute and market the recording without the involvement of a record label — an innovative arrangement that allows the artists to reap a higher share of the profits. Classical Conversations enrich concert-going experience With the beginning of the new season, the Nashville Symphony welcomes the return of its Classical Conversations series. These free, informal talks are held in the Schermerhorn’s Balcony Lobby one hour prior to each performance in the SunTrust Classical Series. If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about the music you’re hearing onstage, this is the perfect opportunity to get insights from the musicians themselves. Our first Classical Conversations take place September 17-19, when Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero and British pianist Stephen Hough will talk about Russia’s Greatest Hits, featuring pieces by Tchaikovsky, Mussorgsky and Rimsky-Korsakov. The featured soloist on Tchaikovsky’s enduringly popular Piano Concerto No. 1, Hough is considered one of the finest pianists working today and has also earned a Stephen Hough reputation as a writer, composer and thinker. Earlier this summer he served as guest editor for Gramophone magazine, and in 2001 he received a prestigious MacArthur Fellowship (also known as the “genius grant”). With his wide-ranging knowledge and interests, Hough should offer some probing observations about the music he’ll be performing at the Schermerhorn. SEPTEMBER




Bold Beginnings September concerts set the tone for a new season at the Schermerhorn B y J onathan M ar x


n September 11, the Nashville Symphony takes the stage for its All-Beethoven Opening Night. It’s hard to think of a better way to start the 2009/10 season: with a program devoted to one of the greatest composers in the history of Western music and a guest appearance by the energetic young pianist Lang Lang, who has attained the kind of global celebrity typically reserved for pop stars. The entire 2009/10 season promises a wide range of music, perfectly encapsulated in September’s offerings at the Schermerhorn. To welcome the start of a new year, we take a look at what’s ahead for the month: not just the powerhouse combination of Guerrero, Lang Lang and Beethoven, but also our Classical Americana concert on September 12, which brings together some of Nashville’s most renowned instrumentalists for a concert exploring the many connections between American roots music and classical music. On September 17-19, the orchestra will perform “Russia’s Greatest Hits,” a concert featuring the work of Russia’s greatest composers, and the following week singer Glen Campbell and songwriter Jimmy Webb will join the Nashville Symphony for a pops concert surveying their hitfilled careers.

Lang Lang sets a new precedent for classical stardom It was almost exactly a decade ago that Lang Lang got his big break at the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s Ravinia Festival. Practically an unknown at the time, the teenage pianist was asked at the 11th hour to fill in for soloist André Watts and gave what he would later call the performance of a lifetime. The concert literally turned him into an overnight success. Lang Lang’s emergence uncannily mimics Watts’ own nearly 50 years ago — when a young Watts was asked by Leonard Bernstein to fill in for Glenn Gould at a New York Philharmonic concert — yet there is no question that Lang Lang has set a new precedent for stardom in the world of classical music. Just consider his high-profile appearance at the opening ceremony of the Beijing Olympics last summer, which was seen by millions of television viewers around the world. With his exuberant, emotive stage presence and his taste for designer clothes, it’s easy to see why audiences have responded with such fervor. Lang Lang has been credited with inspiring an entire generation of Chinese children to take up the piano. He has also raised the eyebrows of some reviewers, who feel that his showy persona threatens to overtake the music, but even those critics acknowledge that he is a phenomenally talented musician, and he continues to evolve as an artist. Writing in The New York Times last year, Anthony Tommasini





Lang lang

noted that Lang Lang’s most recent CD release, Chopin: The Piano Concertos, may reveal “evidence of a new, more mature Lang Lang. And there are admirable qualities to Mr. Lang’s vibrant, sensitive and often poetic playing.” When Lang Lang makes his first ever appearance in Nashville to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 3 as part of the First Tennessee All-Beethoven Opening Night, local audiences will have a rare chance to witness this artist up-close. Part of the thrill of seeing him in concert will be getting to experience his full range as a performer — that mix of keyboard pyrotechnics and sensitive musicianship that has captured the attention of fans all over the world. Classical Americana connects musical traditions Throughout history, composers have drawn on folk melodies and harmonies for inspiration, yet today there remains a dramatic divide between popular music and classical music, a sense that these art forms exist in separate universes. It’s an irony not lost on Alan D. Valentine, president and CEO of the Nashville Symphony, and Jed Hilly, executive director of the Americana Music Association. The two men were talking last year about the ways that different styles of music tend to get

compartmentalized, when they hit upon an idea: What better place than Nashville to put on a concert that seeks to erase some of the distinctions between orchestral music and the homegrown music that helped make our city famous? The result is Classical Americana, a one-ofa-kind musical experience presented by First Tennessee on September 12 at the Schermerhorn. A tireless promoter of Americana music (a term that encompasses country, blues and other styles), Hilly helped assemble an impressive roster of guest artists to perform with the Nashville Symphony. These include mandolinist Sam Bush and Dobro player Jerry Douglas, both among the most important bluegrass musicians of the past four decades; guitarist Buddy Miller, one of the city’s most respected musicians; soprano Karen Parks, who is equally at home performing classical music, opera and spirituals; and banjoist Abigail Washburn, whose musical journeys stretch from the Appalachian foothills to the Chinese mainland. The program will include well-known songs from the American folk and popular music traditions, presented in combination with classical works by Aaron Copland, Charles Ives and others that use those very songs as source material. Expect to hear tunes as familiar as “America” SEPTEMBER




and the Shaker hymn “Simple Gifts” — but be prepared to hear them in a whole new way. “Americana and classical music share a common bond because they’re both concerned with the idea of artistic integrity,” Hilly observes. “They’re both viable forms of expression, and that is one of the connections we want to make. Listeners don’t care what kind of music it’s called. They just appreciate great music.” “No one understands these connections better than the musicians of the Nashville Symphony,” Valentine adds. “Our orchestra has a long history of providing players for recording sessions on Music Row, and we regularly welcome country and bluegrass artists to the Schermerhorn stage. What makes the Classical Americana evening so unique is that we’re taking a fresh look at how all this music is truly connected.”

From Russia, with music For the first concerts in this season’s SunTrust Classical Series, taking place September 17-19, the Nashville Symphony pays tribute to three titans of Russian music: Rimsky-Korsakov, Tchaikovsky and Mussorgsky, all contemporaries in the late 19th century. The world’s largest nation has long been celebrated as a wellspring of some of the greatest works in the classical repertoire, and Rimsky-Korsakov and Mussorgsky in particular shared an interest in creating music that captured the essence of the Russian character. Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero cautions, however, that listeners should hesitate before trying to identify a distinctly “Russian” sound. “Even within this one country, there were different stylistic trends going on at the time. Tchaikovsky’s music was very passionate. He





used composing as a way of telling the world the personal turmoil that he was going through. Then you have Rimsky-Korsakov, whose music is fast and bright and colorful. He was concerned less about human emotions, and more about how the orchestra should sound. And in parts of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition [which will be performed at this concert], the music is very folkloric. The melodies speak of history; there’s a lot of nostalgia and melancholy.” Written as tribute to the painter Viktor Hartmann and presented as a kind of audio tour through his artworks, Pictures was published posthumously in 1886, in a version edited by Rimsky-Korsakov. Conceived as a suite for piano, the piece is now far better known in its various orchestral versions. Two years ago, Nashville Symphony performed a version of Pictures in which each movement was orchestrated by a different composer or arranger, but this month’s concert will feature the orchestration of French composer Maurice Ravel — without a doubt the best-known version. “Even though this is a very Russian piece,” Guerrero says, “Ravel brought his own style to the table, so it has this wonderful combination of human emotion and vivid orchestration.” Glen Campbell and Jimmy Webb: a perfect pair Some singers and songs were meant to go together. Just ask songwriter Jimmy Webb. Among the hundreds of artists who have performed his material, one name in particular stands out: Glen Campbell. During the late 1960s, the singer recorded a remarkable run of songs written by Webb, most notable among them “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Wichita Lineman.” The combination of Webb’s compelling narratives and Campbell’s supple voice yielded a singular chemistry. “It’s almost a metaphysical thing,” Webb says. “If there hadn’t been a Glen Campbell, I would have had to invent one, because my songs don’t come alive in quite the same way in anyone else’s hands.” Four decades later, Campbell and Webb remain good friends. When they perform with the Nashville Symphony on September 24-26, as part of the Bank of America Pops Series, audiences

can count on hearing their biggest hits together. Yet beyond these fruitful collaborations, each man has cultivated an impressive body of work on his own. “Our lives have encompassed other artists and other material, and so to include all of that, we’ll each take the stage separately during the show, and then we’ll come together,” Webb explains. “There’s a weaving of the Jimmy Webb Glen Campbell strands of our lives that actually takes place in front of people.” Indeed, some of Campbell’s biggest hits, including “Rhinestone Cowboy,” weren’t written by Webb, and when the singer performs at the Schermerhorn, he’s likely to include a few numbers from his most recent release, Meet Glen Campbell, which includes interpretations of songs originally performed by the rock bands U2 and Green Day, among others. “I think I’ve got a pretty good ear for songs,” Campbell says, “and when you find a great song, you can do anything with it.” For Webb, performing his own material presents a creative challenge. “I can’t do my music without trying to reinterpret and redefine it. I’m forced by a kind of internal hygiene to seek another way through, to find another chord or another nuance.”

MOZART & SHOSTAKOVICH, October 1-3 Cellist Alisa Weilerstein has enthralled concertgoers with her virtuosic, passionate concert sponsor: musicianship, and she’ll join Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony next month for a performance of Shostakovich’s intensely introspective Concerto for Cello No. 2. Only 27, this gifted musician has earned a stellar reputation for immersing herself in whatever she plays. Part of the SunTrust Classical Series, this delightfully varied evening of music also features Mozart’s elegant Haffner Symphony and Ravel’s Rapsodie Espagnol, which evokes the romantic allure of Spain. The orchestra will also premiere Sinfonía No. 4, a brand-new piece by composer Roberto Sierra, who deftly weaves Latin motifs into his memorable compositions. CLASSICAL GUITAR, GERMAN GENIUS, October 15-17 concert sponsor: The Nashville Symphony pays tribute to the music of Spain and Germany in this concert featuring soloist Sharon Isbin, who has been hailed as “one of the best guitarists in the world” by the Boston Globe. Isbin joins the orchestra for a performance of Christopher Rouse’s Concert de Gaudí, which draws on the traditional flamenco music of Spain to evoke the fantastic creations of architect Antoni Gaudí. Guest conductor John Fiore will also lead the orchestra in performances of Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture and Schumann’s buoyant Rhenish Symphony, which evokes the breathtaking beauty of Germany’s Rhine River.

SILENT COMEDY CLASSICS FEATURING ORGANIST TOM TRENNEY, October 26 Organist Tom Trenney returns for this hugely popular annual event featuring his improvised accompaniment at the magnificent Martin Foundation Concert Organ. At this year’s concert Trenney will provide the musical backdrop for two silent comedy classics. In One Week, newlyweds Buster Keaton and Sibyl Seely try their best to build a house from a do-it-yourself kit, while Big Business stars Laurel and Hardy as Christmas tree salesmen who take an argument with a prospective customer just a little too far. Hilarity and destruction ensue. Audience members are encouraged to shout and cheer along with the onscreen action, so come down to the Schermerhorn for what promises to be a roaring good time!

What I Did on My Summer Vacation During the months of July and August, Nashville Symphony musicians take a much needed break from rehearsing and performing. InConcert asked three orchestra members what they did over their summer break, and here’s what they had to say:

Ann Richards, assistant principal flute In July, my husband, Glen Wanner (the Symphony’s assistant principal bassist), our 13-year-old son Marcus and I took a big car trip. We went up the Blue Ridge Parkway and camped and rode bicycles along the way. We had our miniature poodle, Mopsy, with us. He loved it. We spent four nice days in Hartford, Conn., where my brother spoke at the National Model Railroad Association Convention. In the middle of town, there’s an ancient burial ground where the founders of Hartford are buried, including my relative from 10 generations ago, Michael Richards. From Hartford, we drove to New York’s Adirondack Mountains, where we camped and kayaked at Saranac Lake and bicycled with Mopsy on the back. We also went to Lake Placid, where Glen and Marcus went down the Olympic bobsled track, and Marcus and I rode the Adirondack Scenic Railroad. We love travel, we love nature and we love to get out of the city as much as possible — and cycling is a good way to see things slowly while you’re getting your exercise.

Keith Nicholas, cello Summertime is family time for me. After playing for 10 straight months during the concert season, it helps to get a break so that we can devote more time to other things. My son, Spencer, is almost 4, and my daughter, Chelsea, is 8 months, and I’ve been hanging out with them, taking them to the park and other places. I would say our favorite hangout is Crockett Park in Brentwood. Sometimes we play a little soccer, and Spencer likes to run around. We take Chelsea along for the ride, and she likes to see what’s going on. I have done the occasional wedding and recording session this summer, and of course I’m still practicing. My wife, Dong Dong Zhang, is also a cellist who occasionally plays with the orchestra. We have to practice separately since our kids were born, but they’re both certainly into music. If we’re playing at home, Chelsea will crawl over and look at what’s going on, and occasionally we’ll see a little smile on her face. Or Spencer will sometimes dance to what we’re playing. We’ve gotten him a 1/16-size cello, and he likes to play really fast with the bow. When he does that, we kid around and say that he’s making fire with it.

Leslie Norton, principal horn I enjoyed having my daughter home from college after her freshman year at American University. Our family took a trip to the Connecticut shore, and then us girls did some tubing at a place we go every year in the Smoky Mountains called Deep Creek. It’s the greatest thing: You rent a $5 innertube, you walk up the trail for half an hour, put your tube in and then float back down. The water’s really freezing, so you get out and walk back up the trail in the hot sun, and by the time you get to the top you’re ready to get back in the water. If we don’t do that every year, it’s not summer. I also went with my husband, Chris, who is a percussionist, up to Door County in Wisconsin, where he played in the Peninsula Music Festival. We did some cycling and kayaking, and we ate plenty of cheese curd, cherry pie and whitefish. We got a lot of good summer things in this year —cooking, not cooking, beach time, creek time, sleeping-in time. It was much needed, but the other day I was practicing the horn and realized that I’m ready to have something to practice for. It’s time to start playing with people again instead of terrorizing the dog for no good reason.





The two best decisions of my life. Having a baby with my Vanderbilt Nurse-Midwife was such a warm, wonderful experience that I want to share our choice with everyone who’s starting a family. Our relationship was built on her sound clinical skills and a holistic approach, including personal attention. She was there for me every step of the way, first listening, then acting as a coach and teacher while always giving us choices based on what was best for our family. I felt she was not just an amazing professional, but also a personal friend. There’s no better experience in the world than having a baby. Doing so at Vanderbilt Medical Center with a Vanderbilt Board Certified Nurse-Midwife made it even better.

Ludwig van Beethoven born on December 16, 1770, in Bonn, Germany; died on March 26, 1827, in Vienna Leonore Overture No. 3 Despite its official numbering, the Leonore Overture No. 3 is actually the second of the four overtures Beethoven composed for his only opera, Fidelio. He wrote it to introduce the first revival, which was given on March 29, 1806, in Vienna and included substantial revisions of the opera. Beethoven’s score calls for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani and strings. estimated length: 13 minutes Beethoven’s only opera shows a regime based on cruelty and injustice being toppled through the power of courageous love. It has lost none of its urgency as societies careen from crisis to crisis. Merely performing Fidelio can signal an implicit political or social critique, for the walled grimness of its prison setting has remained distressingly relevant. The story of Fidelio is straightforward. Set in a prison outside Seville, Spain, it centers around the heroic plan of a noblewoman, Leonore, to search for her husband, Florestan, who has been “disappeared” as a political prisoner. His actual crime is never specified, but it clearly has to do with his opposition to the unjust policies of the prison governor, Don Pizarro, who has




placed him in solitary confinement out of revenge. Leonore disguises herself as a man (using the assumed identity of Fidelio) to gain access to the prison. In the end, Pizarro’s atrocities are uncovered and Florestan and his fellow prisoners are freed. Beethoven referred to Fidelio as his “child of sorrow” since it cost him so much struggle to write — largely because the story meant so much to him, but also because Beethoven, not a man easily given to compromise, had to accommodate himself to the practical necessities of the theater. The first version of the opera, given on November 20, 1805 (the year the Eroica Symphony was introduced to the public), was a failure. Beethoven quickly withdrew it but introduced a tighter, revised version the following spring. The overture we hear was intended for that production. Beethoven wrote still another overture a couple years later for a production in Prague that never materialized. Finally, in 1814 he created the opera as it has since been known, changing its name from Leonore to Fidelio and writing a brisker, much more compact overture. Leonore No. 3 turned out to be, paradoxically, too dramatic for its context in the opera house. Adopting the heroic character of the Eroica, it encapsulates the very soul of the drama in purely instrumental terms and so, Beethoven came to realize, overwhelms the ensuing opera instead of preparing for it. The slow introduction descends — literally, in a stepwise 2009

motion at the beginning — into the despairing depths of the dungeon where Florestan languishes but has a vision of hope that his wife will save him. The musical material is essentially taken from the point of view of Florestan, who can be seen as an alter ego for Beethoven (imprisoned in his own way by deafness). Both muscular and nimble, the main theme of the Allegro is Beethoven at his most dramatic. The hope anticipated earlier in the music returns, but so do the shadows, eventually leading to a climactic moment in which the atmosphere suddenly changes. As he does in the opera itself, Beethoven uses a trumpet fanfare to symbolize the abrupt end of Pizarro’s corrupt power and the coming liberation. In the final pages, Beethoven achieves a remarkable effect by overlaying a series of patterns that scurry through the strings. These build tension to a nearly unbearable level before the dam bursts and the full ensemble joins in unstoppable, joyous excitement. Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37 Beethoven composed his Third Piano Concerto between 1800 and 1802 (although some sketches date earlier). The composer performed as soloist at the premiere on April 5, 1803, in Vienna. He dedicated the piece to Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia. In addition to solo piano, the score calls for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2

trumpets, timpani and strings.

As far back as his teenage years in Bonn, we can find evidence of Beethoven’s preoccupation with the concerto genre. At this very time, Mozart was producing his famous series of piano concertos in Vienna; these provided Mozart with much-needed income to support his new freelance career after cutting ties with his Salzburg patron. When Beethoven moved to Vienna in 1792, a decade later, he would repeat that pattern, relying on his talents as a performing pianist to establish a name. One aspect that made the concerto format so attractive was that it showcased Beethoven’s personality as a performer and composer at the same time — at least before his deafness reached the point where he could no longer function as a concert pianist. He was the soloist for four of his five piano concertos, premiering the Third at a concert in Vienna on April 5, 1803. The Beethoven keyboard style was a phenomenon in that “land of the clavier,” as Mozart had once described Vienna. Diarists recorded the spellbinding sessions Beethoven would weave through his recital improvisations, including reports of snapped strings and splintered hammers. The piano seemed an extension of his very personality. Beethoven’s first three piano concertos show a keen awareness of the Mozart models, incorporating the latter’s strategies (not to mention Haydnesque

tricks of the trade) without succumbing to pale imitation. For the Piano Concerto No. 3, a significant point of reference was a work in the same key that Beethoven held in particular awe: Mozart’s C minor Concerto (K. 491). The shadow of Beethoven would loom heavily over composers who followed in the 19th century, but here we find Beethoven himself undergoing something of the “anxiety of influence.” A famous anecdote recounts Beethoven taking a walk with his pianist friend Johann Cramer and declaring his admiration of a passage in Mozart’s concerto: “My dear Cramer, we shall never be able to do anything like that!” A long, march-like exposition introduces the first movement’s thematic ideas while the piano lies in wait, silent.

First is a dour, clipped motif in the home key. Later it’s countered by a tune that seems opposite in every aspect — lyrical, flowing, gentle and a rebuttal of the idea that Beethoven and gracefulness don’t go together. What a dramatic entrance Beethoven constructs for the pianist: three powerhouse scales in a row before it actually gets around to the themes proper. Much of what follows involves gestures that reconsider the drama inherent in the dialogue between these two musical forces — piano and orchestra. Especially innovative is the moment leading back from the piano’s cadenza to the coda: Here, instead of the orchestra’s forceful reentry (which had become a concerto cliché by this point), Beethoven ratchets up the suspense. Listen for that clipped, drumbeat-like part of the first motif (now at last played by the drums) in an ominous passage underscored by the timpani. Notice, too, those tidal waves of scales swirling upward in the final measures. The Largo starts off with the piano now rhapsodizing alone. This movement is a wonder of gently shaded orchestration and delicately singing pianism — among the most tenderly sensual pages in all Beethoven. It also serves as the perfect eye of the storm between the dramatic outer movements. The tersely angular main theme of the Rondo finale is supercharged with energy. A particularly alluring episode introduced by the clarinet recollects the blissful lyricism of the Largo before being dispelled by

an anxious riff on the Rondo theme — the Furies returned in full force. This time, after the pianist’s cadenza, Beethoven works in another novel touch in the way he segues from C minor to C major to end the concerto: The pianist transforms the first two notes of the Rondo theme from a threat into an insouciant phrase, which launches a final, rapid-fire coda whose high spirits cannot be held in check — even the timpani now seems overcome with mirth. Symphony No. 3 in E-flat major, Op. 55 “Eroica” Beethoven composed his Symphony No. 3 between 1802 and 1804. He conducted the first performance at the estate of his patron, Prince Franz Joseph von Lobkowitz, to whom he dedicated the work, in the summer of 1804. The first official public performance followed in Vienna on April 7, 1805. Beethoven scores the work for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 3 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings. estimated length: 47 minutes The “Eroica” is rightly described as a giant advance in the history of Western music. But along with its central historical significance — the fact that it claimed a lofty new position for symphonic music — the “Eroica” is intimately connected to the personal breakthrough it represents in Beethoven’s own life. The music is part of his creative response to the profound

crisis of his early 30s, shortly after the turn of the century. What Beethoven probably hoped was a passing phase of troubled hearing in fact marked the onset of permanent deafness, an especially appalling nightmare for an active musician. In the summer of 1802, doctor’s orders were to take it easy and spend some time in Heiligenstadt (then a distant suburb, peacefully removed from the hectic pace of Vienna). The promised cure, however, didn’t happen, and Beethoven’s despair led him to contemplate suicide. The so-called Heiligenstadt Testament is the moving confessional letter that the composer penned in the form of a will that autumn. Beethoven recounts in it the reasons for his depression, how he had felt the need to keep his growing deafness hidden from the world and how he was misunderstood as “misanthropic” by nature. He then explains his determination to continue living, prompted by an overpowering conviction of artistic mission: “It seemed impossible to leave the world until I had produced all that I felt called upon me to produce, and so I endured this wretched existence.” This renewed sense of purpose went hand in hand with a desire to forge what Beethoven was calling “a new path” in music and soon bore fruit in the Third Symphony, which quickly absorbed him. Almost everything about this symphony indicates that the stakes had been raised to a higher level. Its only “traditional” aspect is the instrumentation, which calls on the

standard forces used by Mozart and Haydn in their mature symphonies, with the exception of three horns instead of two. What are some examples of this sea change? They extend from the large-scale architecture of the work to shocking shifts in harmonic thought to an intensification of familiar devices such as changes in volume. The story goes that Beethoven’s admiration for Napoleon Bonaparte as a heroic force for revolutionary change soured when the French leader had himself crowned emperor in December 1804. Yet while the idealistic Beethoven abhorred tyranny and did in fact violently scratch out his original dedication from the title page of the score, he hadn’t ruled out the practical advantages of such a dedication (at the time he was considering resettling in Paris). In the end, he published the work as a “Heroic Symphony” (Sinfonia Eroica), which was “composed to celebrate the memory of a great man.” All manner of imagery has been invoked to get to the heart of this urgent music. The first movement has been said to suggest scenarios ranging from a metaphoric battlefield (with the assertive opening chords as “cannon shots”) to the tireless energy of early industrialism. What is unmistakable is the driving, epic force that resonates. The famous “surprise” Csharp (outside the home key of E-flat), where the cellos come to rest as they state the first theme, is an emblem for this musical eagerness to encounter experience head on, no matter where it leads.

Ludwig van Beethoven

And this certainly includes pain along with joy, although the music as a whole seems to be reaching for an optimistic outlook. Unlike the Fifth Symphony, which achieves drama via intense compression, the Eroica uses expansion to convey this sense of experience: through distant keys, through a plenitude of thematic material, and through a swelling of the form traditionally used for the opening movement of a classical symphony. The thrilling coda, for example, is no longer a quick wrap-up but an enormous counterweight to the development of ideas preceding it. Beethoven writes a monumental funeral march rather than a lyrical slow movement: a meditation on death to follow the epic life journey of the opening movement. Mahler would later turn to this as a template for some of the marches in his own symphonies. Here Beethoven balances the act of public against private grief. Notice the “personal” sound of the oboe (which is highlighted as a leading character in each of the four movements), set against the more formal public rhetoric of the strings. Where Beethoven introduced pain into the surging

course of the first movement, he reverses the pattern here: A bright streak of hope intrudes (introduced by the oboe) before the march returns to its tragic C minor, now unfolding in a fugue of overpowering majesty. The final pages of the march are almost cinematic, as Beethoven seems to suggest an individual mourner breaking down, unable to go on, while the crowd eventually proceeds. In place of a classical minuet, the Scherzo brings a return to the surging life force of the first movement — yet on a more elementary level. Beethoven focuses on the inherent tension — and playfulness — of pairs of chords jostling against a backdrop of triple meter. The reason behind his choice of three instead of two horns becomes apparent when that section gets its spotlight in the echoing calls of the trio section. Capping the “Eroica” is a marvelously innovative final movement made up of variations: not only on a theme (introduced by the oboe), but on the simpler bass line underpinning it as well, which we hear as a sort of teasing prelude. Beethoven had used the theme in several earlier compositions, including a ballet titled The Creatures of Prometheus. That mythological reference adds yet another dimension to the “Eroica.” Some see the defiant god Prometheus (who endured terrible suffering to bring humanity enlightenment) as the true hero of the work. Beethoven reconsiders this musical material in the light of the “new path” we have heard throughout

the “Eroica.” This unassuming tune is revealed to contain enormous potential, from the chattering virtuosity of the flute to the nobly triumphant climax for the entire orchestra (which wells into a frightening reminiscence of the tragic depths of the funeral march). In his ingenious transformations, Beethoven uncovers the creative self as the true hero of the music.

Classical Americana ABOUT THE PROGRAM

“Americana” has become a catchall term for the many varieties of U.S. vernacular music. Whether the label is applied to quaint hymns, earthy country ballads or raucous blues, Americana music, by definition, belongs to ordinary people. Accessible and openhearted, it is sometimes seen as culturally at odds with the more formal character of classical music, as if there were an aesthetic gulf between them. In reality, the compelling rhythms and earthy spirit of grassroots music have provided inspiration for America’s most cherished classical works. This is the motivating principle behind tonight’s program, a collaboration between the Nashville Symphony and some of the brightest stars in Americana music, who will explore the many connections between traditional American music and the classical repertoire. Throughout the history of concert music, composers have often turned to folk sources, and no American composer mined them more brilliantly than Aaron Copland. His 1944 score for the ballet Appalachian Spring transformed the gentle, stair-step melody of a Shaker hymn, “Simple Gifts,” into a yearning anthem of the yeoman farmer. Similarly, Copland lifted portions of the irresistible HoeDown movement in Rodeo from a recording of old-time Kentucky fiddler William H. Stepp playing “Bonaparte’s Retreat” — a tune that originated in Ireland and has enjoyed a long, varied life in Appalachian folk music. While Copland looked to the farms and the backwoods of America for inspiration, the witty, modernist compositions of Charles Ives draw on the music of its small towns. Ives, who was trained as a church organist, quoted well-known marches, hymns and Stephen Foster songs in his work, subverting their comforting familiarity with unexpected rhythms and tonalities. His Variations on “America,” written in 1891, takes the tune known to every American schoolchild through a series of headlong tempo changes that are both exhilarating and funny. “Country Band March,” circa 1914, wanders even further from convention, yet retains the unmistakable character of its source. George Whitefield Chadwick’s Jubilee, the introductory movement of his four-part Symphonic Sketches, lacks the overt borrowing of Ives’ and Copland’s work, but it has a vigorous, joyful character that makes it seem somehow fundamentally American. The piece, written around 1900, is a fierce musical pursuit of happiness, confirmed in the snippet of poetry Chadwick included on the original score: No cool gray tones for me! Give me the warmest red and green, A cornet and a tambourine, To paint my Jubilee! — Maria Browning is a Nashville-based writer and pops program annotator for the Nashville Symphony.


ALISON BROWN, banjo Alison Brown has taken an unlikely path in establishing herself as an internationally recognized banjoist. The former investment banker toured with Alison Krauss and Union Station and Michelle Shocked before forming her own group, The Alison Brown Quartet. She has recorded 10 critically acclaimed solo albums, including Fair Weather, which



earned a GRAMMY® Award in 2000 for Best Country Instrumental Performance. Together with her husband and bassist, Garry West, Brown is also a co-founder of Compass Records and is intimately involved in the day-to-day aspects of the label’s business.

Compass Records has been the subject of a Harvard Business School case study on entrepreneurship, and Brown has been a guest speaker at the Harvard Business School, Dartmouth’s Amos Tuck School and Belmont University. She was also a recent recipient of Women in Music’s Touchstone Award, honoring women who have made outstanding contributions to the music industry, and the Stars of the South award, recognizing outstanding Americans of Irish ancestry. Brown currently serves as an adjunct professor at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music and on the board of the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Nashville Chamber of Commerce. SAM BUSH, mandolin As cofounder and leader of the progressive bluegrass band New Grass Revival during the 1970s and ’80s, Sam Bush is one of a handful of musicians responsible for creating newgrass, the wild bluegrass stepchild that features rock ’n’ roll grooves and extended virtuosic jams. Besides helming the ever-popular Sam Bush Band, the mandolinist from Kentucky has been a formidable influence on musicians young and old. Bands like




Nickel Creek, Yonder Mountain String Band and String Cheese Incident are indebted to Bush’s example, not only for his wideranging choice of material and rock-based acoustic grooves, but for his captivating, highenergy live shows. When not heading his own band, Bush has spent the past 15 years as a sideman with the likes of Emmylou Harris, Lyle Lovett and the Flecktones and has been an integral part of boundarystretching collaborations with Edgar Meyer, Mark O’Connor and David Grisman. JERRY DOUGLAS, Dobro The world’s most renowned Dobro player, Jerry Douglas has garnered 12 GRAMMY® Awards and numerous International Bluegrass Music Association awards, and holds the distinction of being named Musician of the Year by the Country Music Association (2002, 2005, 2007), the Academy of Country Music (11 times) and the Americana Music Association (2002, 2003). In 2004, the National Endowment for the Arts honored Douglas with a National Heritage Fellowship, acknowledging his artistic excellence and contribution to the nation’s traditional arts. As a child growing up in 2009

Warren, Ohio, Douglas recalls lying on the floor listening to his father’s bluegrass band. In 1963, when he was 8 years old, his father took him to a Flatt & Scruggs concert, where he heard the influential Dobro players Brother Oswald Kirby and Uncle Josh Graves. He began playing the instrument in earnest soon after. The 17-yearold Douglas joined the Country Gentlemen in 1973. Two years later, he became a member of J.D. Crowe and the New South, which also included future stars Ricky Skaggs and Tony Rice. In 1976, Douglas and Skaggs co-founded the now legendary bluegrass combo Boone Creek. In 1979, Douglas launched his solo career with Fluxology and became a member of The Whites. He remained with The Whites until 1985, but still found time to play on such albums as Emmylou Harris’ Roses in the Snow. Douglas became Nashville’s busiest session Dobro player while continuing his solo career. Over the years, his playing has graced more than 2,000 recordings. In 1998, Alison Krauss asked Douglas to join her band, Union Station. Since then, he’s managed to balance his Union Station work with his solo career and a variety of collaborative efforts. DAVID “HONEYBOY” EDWARDS, vocals and guitar David “Honeyboy” Edwards was born on June 28, 1915, in Shaw, Miss. One of the last living links to Robert Johnson and one of the last original acoustic Delta blues players, he is a living legend,

Buddy Miller

and his story is truly part of history.  Moving to Chicago in the early ’50s, Edwards played small clubs and street corners with Floyd Jones, Johnny Temple and Kansas City Red. In 1953, he recorded several songs for Chess that remained unissued until “Drop Down Mama” was included in an anthology release.  In 1972, Edwards met Michael Frank, and the two soon became fast friends. In 1976, they formed The Honeyboy Edwards Blues Band and hit the blues scene on Chicago’s North Side, also performing as a duo on occasion. Frank founded Earwig Records, and in 1979 Edwards and his friends Sunnyland Slim, Kansas City Red, Floyd Jones and Big Walter Horton recorded Old Friends. Edwards continues up and down the Blues Highway, traveling from juke joint to nightclub to festival, playing real Delta blues to adoring fans everywhere. BUDDY MILLER, guitar Buddy Miller has been a singer and the writer and cowriter of songs other people sang, including the Dixie Chicks, Lee Ann Womack and Brooks & Dunn. He has been a multi-instrumentalist and harmony singer for a succession of acclaimed performers, beginning with his wife, Julie Miller, and then in prompt succession Emmylou Harris, Steve Earle, Lucinda Williams — and, most recently, Alison Krauss and Robert Plant. He has also produced his own records, along

Karen Parks

with those of his wife, Solomon Burke, Allison Moorer and Jimmie Dale Gilmore. For some years it was Julie who stood center stage, first back in Austin, Texas, where they met, then in New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles and, finally, Nashville, where they settled in 1993, a short drive from Music Row. In the years since, Buddy Miller has made five proper long players under his own name, though Julie’s singing and writing voice is ever-present throughout. In 2001, they released an album under both names. Eight years later, they have returned with a new suite of songs, Written in Chalk. KAREN PARKS Karen Parks, a native of Greenville, S.C., has performed in major opera houses and concert halls in many European countries. Her performances in America include appearances at Carnegie Recital Hall, The Kennedy Center and San Francisco Opera. Parks’ chamber music performances include appearances at the Next Generation Festival in Pennsylvania, where she sang The Romance Suite by Dmitri Shostakovich (in Russian). In addition to being a Fulbright scholar, Parks is a

member of Phi Kappa Phi national academic honor society and Mu Phi Epsilon. She is the recipient of the Cadeau Foundation Grant, which she used for study with renowned soprano Renata Scotto. As a winner of the Puccini Competition, Parks was granted a New York City performance at Alice Tully Hall and was mentored by the soprano Licia Albanese for many years. Parks has also graced the London Broadway stage, making her debut as Cindy Lou (Micaela) in the West End production of Carmen Jones, a role that resulted in her nomination for an Olivier Award. Soon thereafter, she sang the world premiere of Heikki Sarmanto’s Perfect Harmony, which was televised and aired internationally. Her notable recordings include Song of America on Thirty Tigers, Carmen Jones on EMI, Perfect Harmony on Time Warner, Handel’s Messiah and the solo releases Nobody Knows: Songs of Harry T. Burleigh, Journeys of the Heart, Nocturne and Spiritually Yours, A Private Collection. A renowned voice teacher, Parks owns and operates The Studio for Vocal Refinement, a private voice studio in Atlanta.





Abigail Washburn

ABIGAIL WASHBURN Abigail Washburn never set out to be a recording artist. She planned to move to China, but instead she stumbled upon a music career after paying a visit to the International Bluegrass Music Association conference in Louisville, Ky., where she intended to learn a few banjo tunes but walked away with a demo session for a record deal. She canceled her one-way ticket to China and

moved to Nashville. 
 After releasing her solo debut, Song of the Traveling Daughter, Washburn formed the Sparrow Quartet in 2005 with cellist Ben Sollee, banjoist Béla Fleck and fiddler Casey Driessen. In 2006, the U.S. State Department and the American Center for Educational Exchange requested that the group led the first official tour of a U.S. band in Tibet. In May 2008, the Sparrow Quartet released Abigail Washburn & the Sparrow Quartet; later that year, the group was invited by the U.S. State Department to play in China, including several performances in Beijing during the 2008 Olympic games. In December 2008, Abigail served as a resident teacher at the Sichuan University Art School teaching traditional

American music. She also volunteered for Sichuan Quake Relief, performing at schools serving the victims of the recent earthquake that had left more than 5 million people homeless and hundreds of thousands dead. Her experience led to the benefit recording Afterquake, which blends folk and electronic music with the sounds of postearthquake Sichuan. There is an undeniable element of Abigail Washburn in every project she embraces. Her spirit and philosophy bind countries, cultures and genres. “As more and more people engage in this struggle for a new direction for the human spirit,” she says, “we’ll recognize that we’re morphing into a global species.”

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

NIKOLAI RIMSKY-KORSAKOV born on March 18, 1844, in Tikhvin, Russia; died on June 21, 1908, in Lyubensk, Russia Russian Easter Overture, Op. 36 Rimsky-Korsakov composed the Russian Easter Overture between August 1887 and April 1888 and dedicated it to the memories of Modest Mussorgsky and Alexander Borodin. He conducted the premiere in St. Petersburg on December 15, 1888. The Overture is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle, cymbals, bells, bass drum, tam-tam, harp and strings. estimated length: 15 minutes Rimsky-Korsakov, along with Modest Mussorgsky, belonged to a group of Russian composers who had banded together in St. Petersburg with the aim of cultivating a self-reliant and authentically Russian art. They became known as “The Five” or “The Mighty Handful,” with RimskyKorsakov as the young pup




of the bunch. As a self-taught composer, Rimsky-Korsakov absorbed the anti-academic bias of The Five, but, ironically, he went on to wield significant influence as a professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory. He developed expertise in Russian folk culture and above all in the art of richly characterful orchestration, much of this gleaned from his duties as “inspector of naval bands” while an officer in the navy. His long decades of teaching left a lasting imprint on the emerging composers of a new generation, including Stravinsky. Through most of the 1880s, Rimsky-Korsakov’s own muse had been fallow, but he broke the long dry spell with two works that have remained his most popular in the concert hall: Scheherazade and the Russian Easter Overture, both of which he completed in 1888. Soon after, Rimsky-Korsakov became preoccupied with composing opera, but the Russian Easter Overture is an independent, self-contained work for the concert hall rather than an opera overture — something akin to a symphonic poem, comparable in that sense to Tchaikovsky’s Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture. The piece weaves together two key aspects of RimskyKorsakov’s musical thought: his affection for Russian source material and his perfection of a vibrant, shimmering sound world through orchestral coloration. The subject of the Overture is the Easter feast day as experienced in Russian Orthodox culture, where it is not only the holiest holiday of the liturgical year but an 2009

occasion for widespread celebration. The piece’s title in Russian is in fact the phrase traditionally used for Easter: “Bright Holiday.” Rimsky-Korsakov himself was not an Orthodox believer. But his fascination with Russian ritual led him to become intrigued by, as he put it, the “transition from the gloomy and mysterious evening of Passion Saturday to the unbridled rejoicing of Easter Sunday” — the latter evoking for him images of “pagan merrymaking.” Rimsky-Korsakov also plays a bit of the cultural anthropologist by employing a number of melodies gleaned from his studies of Russian Orthodox liturgy. The Overture’s basic narrative shape — adapting the familiar structure of a slow introduction and a fast-paced main section — embraces a maximal contrast of moods and instrumental hues. With its procession of woodwinds (playing one of those liturgical melodies) and ravishing solos for violin and cello, the introduction is solemn and meditative. Listen especially to how Rimsky-Korsakov uses delicately rhapsodic colors during the transition from this introduction to the Allegro to depict “the ineffable light in which the Holy Sepulcher had been bathed at the moment of resurrection.” The Overture continues with a dramatic parade and back-and-forth of more liturgical themes, slowing again for a recitation of prayers from a priestly solo trombone. After a solo flight from the violin, the orchestration brightens with

even greater excitement — at first restrained but soon spilling forth into the “unbridled rejoicing” Rimsky-Korsakov was determined to capture in music. The full ensemble, reinforced by brass and pealing bells, exults in the festive spirit. PYOTR ILYICH TCHAIKOVSKY born on May 7, 1840 in Votkinsk, Russia; died on November 6, 1893 in St. Petersburg Concerto for Piano No. 1 in B-flat minor, Op. 23 Tchaikovsky composed the first draft of his Concerto for Piano No. 1 between November and December 1874 while living in St. Petersburg and finished orchestrating it a few months later. The first performance took place in Boston on October 25, 1875, with Hans von

Bülow as soloist. Tchaikovsky subsequently made minor revisions to the work (we hear the final revision made in 1889). In addition to the solo piano, the Concerto is scored for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani and strings.

estimated length: 33 minutes How it must have hurt when Eduard Hanslick, one of the preeminent music critics of the era, denounced Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto as a piece that forces us “to see a host of gross and savage faces, hear crude curses and smell the booze.” But imagine the composer’s feelings when one of his own staunchest champions, the conductor and pianist Nikolai Rubinstein, pronounced

his First Piano Concerto “so badly written as to be beyond rescue.” Christmas Eve 1874 was not a happy one for the young composer. That’s when he had arranged to give a playthrough of his ambitious new piano concerto, which was still in progress. The stakes were high: Tchaikovsky had been winning advocates, but still needed a decisive breakthrough to establish himself. Since he

wasn’t a professional pianist, he hoped to solicit technical advice from Rubinstein, a celebrated keyboard performer of the time. An eager Tchaikovsky even imagined that Rubinstein might give his piece extra cachet by premiering it himself. The idea, of course, was that Rubinstein would be impressed by the genius of it all and demand to be the one to play it first. But let’s let Tchaikovsky tell the story (as he does in a letter several years after the fact): “I played the first movement. Not a single word, not a single comment! If you knew how stupid and intolerable the situation of a man is who cooks and sets a meal before a friend, a meal the friend then proceeds to eat — in silence!... I summoned all my patience and played through to the end. Still silence. I stood up and asked, ‘Well?’ ” Rubinstein then launched into a vitriolic denunciation of the concerto. From the gist of it, Tchaikovsky notes, “an independent witness in the room might have concluded that I was a maniac, an untalented, senseless hack who had come to submit his rubbish to an eminent musician.” Rubinstein tried to soften the blow by suggesting the piece might work with massive rewrites, to which Tchaikovsky erupted, “I shall not alter a single note; I shall publish the work exactly as it stands!” In fact, Tchaikovsky did later publish a revised version, though only with some minor tweakings. But in the meantime, Hans von Bülow emerged as a champion of the concerto. Famous as a conductor and

exponent of Wagner, Bülow was also an extraordinary pianist and had expressed admiration for Tchaikovsky’s music. He found the concerto not only to overflow with original ideas, but also to be expressed in a clear and mature form. Bülow agreed to premiere the concerto as soloist, which he did on his American tour on October 25, 1875, at a safe remove from Moscow — in Boston, in fact, with a pickup orchestra of mostly Harvard music students (the Boston Symphony was yet to be founded). It should come as no surprise that Tchaikovsky vehemently rubbed Rubinstein’s name off the title page as the dedicatee and replaced it with Bülow’s. Although he wasn’t present for the world premiere in Boston, Tchaikovsky soon heard of its triumph. Further vindication arrived when Rubinstein later recanted his criticism and actually conducted the Moscow premiere in December 1875. Rubinstein also played as soloist in later years and entrusted the work to a lineage of pianists who were his students, helping to ensure its enduring place in the repertory. The opening is one of the most famous moments in Tchaikovsky — and in all romantic music. A simple, four-note motif from the horns demands attention. Its insistent repetitions set the scene for the dramatic and passionate melody that then unfolds in the strings. Even if the hammerchord gestures with which the pianist frames the tune have been endlessly parodied by Liberace stylings, this curtain raiser retains its ability to stir

up a sense of excitement and grandeur. Enjoy it while you can — the tune returns only once in this lengthy introduction and then is gone for good. Brass chords form a bridge into the main movement proper. Tchaikovsky speeds up the tempo and sends the soloist skittering across the keyboard in an agitated rhythm. This also returns us to the concerto’s gloomy home key of B-flat minor after the velvety D-flat major of the grand tune in the introduction. In contrast to the latter, Tchaikovsky gets a good deal of mileage out of the pensive theme first heard from the clarinet. This happens to be one of several imports from folk music used in the concerto. In this case, the source is a Ukrainian tune Tchaikovsky claims he had heard whistled at the market fair by blind beggars. The richly episodic first movement mixes quieter musings with brashly dramatic outbursts. The soloist’s fingerstretching virtuosity, from delicate, gracious figurations to thunderous double-octaves, is at the service of Tchaikovsky’s far-ranging emotional spectrum — all of which is on display in microcosm in the fantasialike cadenza, whose lengthy dimensions make this section resemble a play within a play. The Andantino (a little quicker than a leisurely Andante) merges the respite of a lyrical slow movement with the playful fun of a scherzo. Revel in Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous, intimate orchestration, particularly the piano’s duets with flute and other solo instruments. It all makes for a striking contrast with the epic

sprawl of the first movement. The scherzo parts, which play with a French folk song as their musical material, intrude surrealistically — almost in a parody of a waltz. Folk music — again, Ukrainian in overall character if not as literal quotation — also fuels the fiery finale, with an intriguingly accented main theme that seems tailor-made for the keyboard. Something of the jittery attitude from the opening movement proper finds its way into this music, while a contrasting second theme is tenderly songful and more metrically regular. At the finale’s climax, this theme gets the same neon-light treatment we recall from the concerto’s opening gestures before the music speeds up for a final, manic thunderclap of head-spinning virtuosity. MODEST MUSSORGSKY born on March 21, 1839 in Karevo, Russia died on March 26, 1881 in St. Petersburg Pictures at an Exhibition (orch. Ravel) Mussorgsky composed Pictures at an Exhibition during a brief period in June 1874, inspired by a recent retrospective of the works of his artist friend, Viktor Hartmann. He wrote the piece for solo piano, but dozens of composers since have tried their hand at translating it for full orchestra. The most successful orchestration remains the version Ravel prepared in 1922. Serge Koussevitzky conducted the Mussorgsky/Ravel Pictures in Paris on October 19, 1922.

Ravel’s score calls for 2 piccolos, 3 flutes, 3 oboes, English horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, snare drum, bass drum, crash cymbals, suspended cymbal, ratchet, slapstick, triangle, tam-tam, xylophone, glockenspiel, chimes, celesta, 2 harps and strings. estimated length: 30 minutes In the summer of 1873, Mussorgsky — who himself would die at a relatively young age as a result of alcoholism — suffered the premature death of the artist Viktor Hartmann (1834-1873), a close friend. Hartmann was one of those rare souls with whom the lonely composer seemed able to express shared artistic aspirations. His art was multifaceted and ranged from painting to costume design to architecture. The composer was profoundly affected by his loss. A retrospective exhibit of Hartmann’s career the following year inspired Mussorgsky to translate his reactions into his own art. He wrote an unusual piano suite made of relatively short but interlocking vignettes. Mussorgsky performed the music for friends at private gatherings, but it remained unpublished until after his death. Rimsky-Korsakov in turn posthumously commemorated his friend Mussorgsky by selecting and editing his chaos of manuscripts, but nearly a half-century passed from the creation of Pictures at an


Exhibition until Maurice Ravel fashioned the orchestral suite that quickly became one of the best-known works of the classical repertoire. It’s fascinating to listen to the original work for piano and then to compare it to Ravel’s treatment, which exploits a wide-ranging palette and many striking contrasts of sonority. In a sense, Mussorgsky’s “translation” of his friend’s art to his own medium has its analog here: Ravel further translates from the piano keyboard to the full eloquence of the orchestra. Yet neither version cancels out the other; both simply add to the richness of the work. With his legendary finesse, Ravel in fact furthers the “conversation” that Mussorgsky has opened up in reflecting on the art of his friend. The shimmering, precise effects Ravel commands are, in turn, often compared with those of a painter — bringing us full circle again. An intensely visual person, Mussorgsky was interested in connections between the arts — not so much in Wagner’s sense of a synthesis, but rather through mutual explorations of similar themes. The Hartmann retrospective included watercolors, oil paintings, costume designs,

architectural sketches and the like, and ranged from Russia to France and medieval Italy — thus the motley objects covered in Pictures at an Exhibition. In fact, several pieces of the original artwork have since been lost, so that Mussorgsky’s portraits remain our sole “record.” Pictures begins with a bright, confident theme (Promenade). Given to trumpets and then full brass by Ravel, this theme will recur periodically to signal the spectator strolling through the exhibition. Mussorgsky sets this confident, folk-like theme in shifting meters to suggest the spectator’s uneven step — apparently a “self-portrait” of the heavy-set composer lumbering among the exhibit pieces. Gnomus takes its cue from Hartmann’s drawing for a deformed gnome likely meant as a design for a nutcracker. Mussorgsky ingeniously emphasizes its halting limp with erratic, irregular rhythms and muffled chords. The Promenade returns in a more chorale-like idiom to lead us to The Old Castle, which is based on one of Hartmann’s architectural watercolors of an Italian castle. Its lilting meter has the nostalgic feel of an old ballad; Ravel’s ingenious touch is to give the voice of a “singing troubadour” in the watercolor to a plaintive alto sax. A briefer but more stately reprise of the Promenade now takes us to Paris and the decorous setting of the Tuileries gardens, where children have been playing but now engage in a spat. Immediately afterward

Mussorgsky depicts a bigwheeled oxcart (Bydło — Polish for “cattle”) with a heavy, march-like tread in the bass. Ravel magnifies the effect via a solo tuba. As the Promenade grows more wistful, it introduces a highly varied mini-suite: Ballet of the Chicks in Their Shells (from Hartmann’s costume designs) is a scherzo-like, coloristic vignette. Its quirky, mechanical pulsings make a perfect match for Ravel’s orchestral art, which tends to every detail — accent, grace note, chord spacing — with engaging colorism. In Samuel Goldenberg and Schmuÿle, Mussorgsky conflates what were two separate pictures by Hartmann into characterizations sharply contrasted by pitch and rhythmic profile. Ravel emphasizes these contrasts: the self-important, wandering line in lower strings for the rich Goldenberg is set against an insistent chatter high in the trumpet (the beggar Schmuÿle). At the end the two are combined. A brisk pick-up in pace announces The Marketplace at Limoges, a comical episode in which townsfolk gossip and — in a brief climax — argue over wares. At this point, Pictures undergoes a dramatic shift in tone. The playful chaos of the marketplace spills over into imposing, sepulchral chords deep in the brass that lead us underground. Catacombs — so-called for an image of the ancient catacombs in Paris — introduces the theme of death, reminding us that

Mussorgsky’s initial impulse was to create a musical memorial for his friend. Deeply moving harmonies resound with an organ-like majesty in Ravel’s orchestration. Mussorgsky underlines the centrality of this episode with his next variant on the Promenade — a minorkey version against ghostly strings called Cum mortuis in lingua mortua (“with those who have died in the language of the dead”). A ray of consoling hope seems to shine in the final measures as the texture brightens briefly. The next image brutally intrudes. The Hut on Hen’s Legs, based on Hartmann’s design for a clock, alludes to a grotesque figure from Russian folklore — the witch BabaYaga, who grinds down the bones of her victims. The music abounds with harsh percussive effects and unsettling harmonies. Pictures concludes with a triumphant expansion of the Promenade theme, for which Ravel pulls out all the stops, including pealing bells and a festive array of percussion. The celebratory tone pays homage to Hartmann’s architectural design for The Great Gate of Kiev — which was never built. Here the spectator and the artwork merge thematically, just as Mussorgsky’s solid, majestic image firms up his monument to his friend.

Jimmy Webb was a 14-year-old gospel musician in 1961, performing with his parents in his native Oklahoma, when he bought his first record. It was “Turn Around, Look at Me,” by a young artist named Glen Campbell. Webb reportedly said that he didn’t care much for the song, but he liked the way Campbell delivered it. Before the decade had ended, Webb had become one of the hottest songwriters in the business, and he had penned three songs — “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman” and “Galveston” — that Glen Campbell turned into enormous hits. Just as the budding tunesmith was drawn to Campbell’s voice, his songs appealed to Campbell, who has said that Webb’s “writing touches something in me that just makes me love it. I think it’s the chord progression, married with an incredible melody.” While Webb has turned out plenty of lighthearted pop over his long career — the Fifth Dimension’s “Up, Up and Away” was an early hit — most of his music has a deeply romantic quality, and his lyrics are full of poetic imagery, heavy with emotion. The lush, vaguely surreal “MacArthur Park,” which was an unlikely Top 10 single for Richard Harris in 1968, could be considered the quintessential Webb composition. The lyrical and musical sophistication of Webb’s songs give them the versatility to come to life in an array of genres. Performers as varied as Donna Summer, Waylon Jennings and Michael Feinstein have successfully interpreted his work. In recent years, Webb has devoted much of his energy to performing his own material, with a string of critically acclaimed solo recordings and successful tours of the U.S., the U.K., Australia and Japan. Arkansas-born Campbell shares Webb’s heartland roots, as well as his early musical promise. He mastered the guitar by age 10 and spent years as a sought-after session player before establishing himself as a singer. He had already enjoyed chart success with John Hartford’s folksy “Gentle on My Mind” when he recorded “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” a quietly brutal portrayal of a lover’s abandonment. Campbell’s polished vocal style made the song appealing to a wide audience without compromising any of its power. The success of the record established Campbell as the premier country/pop crossover artist. A long string of subsequent hits, including “Rhinestone Cowboy” and “Southern Nights,” ultimately gave him a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame®. His partnership with Webb has been an integral part of that journey. Their collaboration has continued for more than 40 years, with numerous recording projects and occasional joint performances. — Maria Browning

ARTIST BIOS GLEN CAMPBELL Becoming a living legend isn’t as easy as Glen Campbell makes it look. First, you have to have a solid foundation of talent on which to build — like being one of the hottest guitar players in the world. Then you have to record songs that will stand the test of time — standards such as Jimmy Webb’s “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” and “Wichita 60


Lineman.” And of course, to be a “living” legend, you need to survive the harsh reality of a celebrity lifestyle. Check, check and check. In 1968, Tommy Smothers caught Campbell’s guest-star appearance on The Joey Bishop Show. He and his brother Dick were so impressed by Campbell’s presence and talent that they asked him to host their summer replacement series, The Summer Brothers Smothers Show. Campbell’s

musical proficiency and natural wit sent the ratings through the roof. CBS executives were so delighted by his unexpected popularity that they offered the fledgling star his own series. The Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour took to the airwaves in January 1969 and immediately soared to No. 1. And the variety show’s talented host became a household name around the world. Four decades later, Campbell continues to perform live shows both in the U.S. and internationally. Not only do his appearances draw sold-out crowds, but he’s still a hot draw on television as well. He’s been profiled on A&E’s Biography, VH1’s Behind the Music and CMT’s Inside Fame. “It’s awesome when you think about the power of TV and movies,” Campbell comments. “If I hadn’t had hit records, I wouldn’t have gotten into TV and movies, but the Goodtime Hour made my career explode all over the world.” Living in Malibu with his wife, Kim, and their three children, Campbell is reaping the rewards of 47 years of hard work. He is able to pick and choose his tour dates and appearances. Even on the road, he has family at hand. His eldest daughter from his first marriage, Debby, joined his stage show in 1987 and has toured with him ever since.

JIMMY WEBB The accolades composer Jimmy Webb has received during his more than 40 years of success are as remarkable as the accomplishments they honor: Webb is the only artist ever to receive GRAMMY® awards for music, lyrics and orchestration, and, according to BMI, his “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” is the third most performed song in the last 50 years, with “Up, Up and Away” on the same list in the top 30. In 1993, the National Academy of Songwriters named Webb recipient of its Lifetime Achievement Award. Though best known for the instant classics he provided for such artists as Glen Campbell (“By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman”), Richard Harris (“MacArthur Park”), the Fifth Dimension (“Up, Up and Away”), The Brooklyn Bridge (“Worst That Could Happen”), Art Garfunkel (“All I Know”), Linda Ronstadt (“Easy for You to Say”), Joe Cocker (“The Moon’s a Harsh Mistress”) and so on, Webb continues to write. Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Johnny Cash and Kris Kristofferson hit No. 1 in the late ’80s with “The Highwayman,” a ballad that won him yet another GRAMMY® for Best Country Song of the Year and a CMA

Award for Single of the Year. Webb’s songs continue to grace a multitude of major recording artists’ albums, from Tony Bennett and Rosemary Clooney to Urge Overkill and Reba McEntire. Webb’s accomplishments as a composer, arranger and producer demonstrate that he remains as important and vital a cultural figure today as he was more than 30 years ago. Embraced by his peers, he has influenced and affected some of the finest musical talents of our time. Frank Sinatra declared “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” as “the greatest torch song ever written,” and said he enjoyed singing Jimmy Webb tunes because “he has been blessed with the emotions and artistic talent of the great lyricists.” Webb’s songs transcend their precedent-setting critical and commercial acclaim to achieve the level of true classics — a permanent part of the American musical landscape, the soundtrack of an era.

The Nashville Symphony’s 2009/10 season marks Giancarlo Guerrero’s first as music director of the Nashville Symphony.



iancarlo Guerrero’s 09/10 season marks his first as music director of the Nashville Symphony. A champion of new music, Guerrero has collaborated with and conducted the music of several of America’s most respected composers, including John Adams, John Corigliano, Osvaldo Golijov, Jennifer Higdon, Michael Daugherty and Roberto Sierra. A new CD on Naxos of music by Michael Daugherty, with Guerrero conducting the Nashville Symphony, is scheduled for release in September 2009. Guerrero’s guest conducting engagements in the 09/10 season include appearances with the symphony orchestras of Milwaukee, New Jersey and Fort Worth; the Pacific Symphony in Costa Mesa; and the Curtis Symphony Orchestra in Philadelphia. Abroad, he conducts the Symphony Orchestras of Vancouver and Edmonton in the fall and the Slovenian Philharmonic in the spring. As a guest conductor, Guerrero recently made two important debuts abroad: his European debut with the Gulbenkian Orchestra, where he was immediately invited to return, and his U.K. Debut with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. He has also recently made successful debuts with several major American orchestras, including the Baltimore Symphony, the Cleveland Orchestra (where he was invited back for a subscription week and tour), the Seattle Symphony, the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and the Philadelphia Orchestra. Other recent orchestral engagements in North America include appearances with the orchestras of Columbus, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Phoenix, San Antonio and San Diego; the National Symphony Orchestra in Washington, D.C.; and at the Grant Park Festival. Also in demand in Central and South America, Guerrero conducts regularly in Venezuela with the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar, with which he has had a special relationship for many years. His debut at the Casals Festival with Yo-Yo Ma and the Puerto Rico Symphony in 2005 was followed by return engagements in 2006 and 2007. He also made his debut at the Teatro Colón in Argentina in 2005. Elsewhere, he is a regular guest conductor of the Auckland Philharmonia in New Zealand. Equally at home with opera, Guerrero works regularly with the Costa Rican Lyric Opera and in recent seasons has conducted new productions of Carmen, La bohème and most recently a new production of Rigoletto. In February 2008, he gave the Australian premiere of Osvaldo Golijov’s one-act opera Ainadamar at the Adelaide Festival, to great acclaim. In June 2004, Guerrero was awarded the Helen M. Thompson Award by the League of American Orchestras, which recognizes outstanding achievement among young conductors nationwide. Guerrero holds degrees from Baylor and Northwestern universities. He was most recently music director of the Eugene Symphony. From 1999 to 2004, he served as associate conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra. Prior to his tenure with the Minnesota Orchestra, he served as music director of the Táchira Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela.

He also holds regular guest-conducting Photo by Amy Dickerson positions with the Tucson Symphony and the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra. When the Nashville Symphony opened Schermerhorn Symphony Center in 2006, Schram was invited to become the orchestra’s resident conductor. While he has conducted on all series the orchestra offers, Schram is primarily responsible for its Bank of America Pops Series. Maestro Schram’s longest tenure has been with the Columbus Symphony Orchestra, where he has worked in a variety of capacities since 1979 and is an audience favorite for all series he conducts, including Pops and the CSO’s summer season. As a regular guest conductor of the Charlotte Symphony Orchestra, Maestro Schram in 2002 opened the orchestra’s new permanent summer home, Symphony Park. He has regularly conducted the Charlotte Symphony for nine consecutive years. In 2008 Maestro Schram was invited to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional of Bolivia in La Paz and the Orquesta Sinfónica UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. His other foreign conducting engagements have included the KBS Symphony Orchestra and the Taegu Symphony Orchestra in Korea, and the Orchester der Allgemeinen Musikgesellschaft Luzern in Switzerland. He has made return appearances to his native Holland to conduct the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic and the Netherlands Broadcast Orchestra. Schram’s studies have been largely in the European tradition under the tutelage of Franco Ferrara, Rafael Kubelik, Abraham Kaplan and Neeme Järvi. He received the majority of his initial training at the Conservatory of The Hague in the Netherlands. His training was completed at the University of Washington.

The 2009/10 season marks Kelly Corcoran’s third season as assistant conductor of the Nashville Symphony. During this time, she has conducted a variety of programs, including the Symphony’s SunTrust Classical Series and Bank of America Photo by Amy Dickerson Pops Series, and has served as the primary conductor for the orchestra’s education and community engagement concerts. She also conducted the Nashville Symphony’s recent CD with Riders In The Sky, ‘Lassoed Live’ at the Schermerhorn. Corcoran debuts this season with the Naples (Fla.) Philharmonic, the Charlotte Symphony and the Memphis Symphony. She has conducted orchestras throughout the country, including the Detroit Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra. In 2009, she made her South American debut as a guest conductor with the Orquesta Sinfónica UNCuyo in Mendoza, Argentina. She has developed a reputation for exciting, energized performances. The Tennessean hailed her work on the podium as “lively” and “fresh.” Named as Honorable Mention for the Taki Concordia Conducting Fellowship, Corcoran conducted the Bournemouth (UK) Symphony in January 2008 and studied with Marin Alsop. Prior to her position in Nashville, she completed three seasons as assistant conductor for the Canton Symphony Orchestra in Ohio and music director of the Canton Youth Symphony and the Cleveland-area Heights Chamber Orchestra. In 2004, Corcoran participated in the selective National Conducting Institute, where she studied with her mentor, Leonard Slatkin. She has held additional posts as assistant music director of the Nashville Opera and founder/music director of the Nashville Philharmonic Orchestra.  Originally from Massachusetts and a member of the Tanglewood Festival Chorus for 10 years, Corcoran received her Bachelor of Music in vocal performance from The Boston Conservatory. She received her Master of Music in instrumental conducting from Indiana University. She currently serves on the conducting faculty at Tennessee State University. SEPTEMBER

"As a first time advertiser, I was thrilled that the phone started ringing right after our first ad appeared. The Arts Magazines target our Design Gallery Homes market perfectly, and we look forward to more calls the rest of the season."

—Mike Carey General Manager • Design Gallery Homes by Drees

In a good economy, the audiences who frequent and support the arts in Nashville are a great audience to reach with your advertising message. However, when the economy slows, this audience becomes even more important to reach because of their affluence and discretionary incomes.

Advertising today is about spending money smarter to reach your target audience. The performing arts venue setting provides a unique advertising experience, what we like to call "the last captured audience in print"...10 minutes before the curtain goes up, there are no distractions, you can't channel surf, fast forward, or TIVO . . . everyone is reading their magazine...just look around the room. So, if you are a current advertiser, thank you for advertising. If your company is not currently advertising, and you would like to learn more about how to reach our audience, please call us at 373-5557. In these unique times advertising is not about spending more money, but rather how to spend the money you have wisely. —Gary Glover • President/Publisher The Glover Group, Inc.

Performing Arts Magazines Presents

—David Moore • Marketing Director Rosemary Beach, Florida


"Rosemary Beach usually markets to our traditional drive market but for some reason did not concentrate much on the Nashville area until 2008. When I was approached by the Glover Group, their demographics, frequency of ads and focus just seemed like a great fit. Plus, when I considered the per impression cost, the program provided great value for our ad dollar. Measuring readership and tracking has become almost impossible these days, but when I did an analysis on our web site traffic, I found a dramatic increase of hits for the duration of our ad program, with sudden increase as soon as our ads ran in their publications. As a result, Tennessee and Nashville has moved into our number two position with web traffic and we have seen a considerable increase not only in our vacation rentals but Real Estate sales as well.”

The cover of this month’s InConcert is by New York City-based illustrator Ellen Weinstein, who has merged past and present by combining vintage photographs from the Nashville Symphony’s archives with a photograph of the Schermerhorn Symphony Center’s exterior. Pictured in this collage illustration are two different versions of the Nashville Symphony from years past: The first shows Music Director Michael Charry and the orchestra onstage at the Tennessee Performing Arts Center in the early 1980s, while the second shows the orchestra with





Music Director Willis Page during the 1963/64 season. Throughout the season, InConcert will be featuring Weinstein’s designs on the cover. Her illustrations have also appeared in Time Magazine, The New York Times, Newsweek, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes and U.S. News & World Report. She has created book jackets for Simon & Schuster, Viking Penguin and Warner Books, and posters for Lincoln Center. To see more examples of her work, visit her website at
