As a teenager, Ming fought valiantly to escape one of history's darkest eras - China's Cultural Revolution - during which millions of innocent youth were deported to remote areas to face a life sentence of poverty and hard labor. He eventually made his way to the U.S. with $50 in his pocket, where against all odds, he later earned a PhD in laser la physics and graduated with the highest honors from Harvard Medical School and MIT. To date, Dr. Wang has performed over 55,000 eye procedures including on over 4,000 physicians. He has published 9 textbooks, holds several U.S. patents, and performed the world’s rst laser artiicial cornea implantation. Dr. Wang is currently the only surgeon in the state who performs 3D SMILE and 3D LASIK (18+), 3D Implantable Contact Lens (21+), 3D Forever Im Young Lens (45+), and 3D Laser Cataract Surgery (60+). He established a non-proot charity, which to date has helped patients from over 40 states in the U.S. and 55 countries, with all sight restoration surgeries performed free-of-charge.

MUSIC DIRECTOR

GIANCARLO GUERRERO Martha & Bronson Ingram Music Director Chair

iancarlo Guerrero is a six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning conductor now in his 11th season as Music Director of the Nashville Symphony. Guerrero is also Music Director of the Wrocław Philharmonic at the National Forum of Music in Poland and Principal Guest Conductor of the Gulbenkian Orchestra in Lisbon, Portugal. He has been praised for his “charismatic conducting and attention to detail” (Seattle Times) in “viscerally powerful performances” (Boston Globe) that are “at once vigorous, passionate and nuanced” (BachTrack). Through commissions, recordings and world premieres, Guerrero and the Nashville Symphony have championed the works of American composers who are defining today’s musical landscape, making Nashville a destination for contemporary orchestral music. Guerrero has presented 11 world premieres with the Nashville Symphony, including the GRAMMY®-winning performance of Michael Daugherty’s Tales of Hemingway and Terry Riley’s The Palmian Chord Ryddle. Guerrero’s rich discography with the Nashville Symphony numbers 17 recordings, including the 2019 Naxos release of Jonathan Leshnoff ’s Symphony No. 4 “Heichalos.” The work was commissioned by the Nashville Symphony for the Violins of Hope, a collection of restored instruments that survived the Holocaust. This recording marks the first time the instruments have been heard on a commercially available album. Other albums have been dedicated to the music of composers as diverse as Jennifer Higdon, Richard Danielpour, Joan Tower and Béla Fleck. During the 2019/20 season, Naxos will release recordings of Aaron Jay Kernis’ Symphony No. 4 and Christopher Rouse’s Concerto for Orchestra,

both recorded with the Nashville Symphony. As part of his commitment to fostering contemporary music, Guerrero, together with composer Aaron Jay Kernis, guided the creation of Nashville Symphony’s biennial Composer Lab & Workshop for young and emerging composers. Guerrero’s 2019/20 season will include return engagements with the Boston Symphony, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Bamberg Symphony, Frankfurt Opera and Museums Orchestra, and the New Zealand Symphony. In January 2020, Guerrero will conduct the Wrocław Philharmonic on a 12-city North American tour. Guerrero has appeared with prominent North American orchestras, including those of Baltimore, Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland, Dallas, Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Los Angeles, Milwaukee, Montréal, Philadelphia, Seattle, Toronto and Vancouver, as well as the National Symphony Orchestra. He has developed a strong international guest-conducting profile and has worked in recent seasons with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Brussels Philharmonic, Deutsches Radio Philharmonie, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, Netherlands Philharmonic, Residentie Orkest, NDR in Hannover, Orquesta Sinfónica de Galicia and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, as well as the Queensland Symphony and Sydney Symphony in Australia. Guerrero was honored as the keynote speaker at the 2019 League of American Orchestras conference, where his address on transforming “inspiration and innovation into meaningful action” was met with a unified standing ovation. Guerrero made his debut with Houston Grand Opera in 2015 conducting Puccini's Madama

In 2008 he gave the Australian premiere of Osvaldo Golijov's one-act opera Ainadamar at the Adelaide Festival. Guerrero previously held posts as the Principal Guest Conductor of The Cleveland Orchestra Miami (2011-2016), Music Director of the Eugene Symphony (2002-2009), and Associate Conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra (1999-2004). Born in Nicaragua, Guerrero immigrated during his childhood to Costa Rica, where he joined the local youth symphony. As a promising young

student, he came to the United States to study percussion and conducting at Baylor University in Texas; he earned his master’s degree in conducting at Northwestern, where he studied with Victor Yampolsky. Given his beginnings in civic youth orchestras, Guerrero is particularly engaged with conducting training orchestras and has worked with the Curtis School of Music, Colburn School in Los Angeles, and Yale Philharmonia, as well as with the Nashville Symphony’s Accelerando program. In recent years, he has also developed a relationship with the National Youth Orchestra (NYO2) in New York, created and operated by the Weill Institute of Music at Carnegie Hall.

Assistant Conductor

N

athan Aspinall begins his role as Assistant Conductor of the Nashville Symphony with the 2019/20 season. Previously, he was Assistant Conductor of Jacksonville Symphony. On a tour of South Florida with pianist Bezhod Abduraimov, he led performances of Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 and Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3. Kevin Wilt of the Palm Beach Daily News said of the performance, “In recent years the Kravis Center has heard performances by the Chicago Symphony, the Royal Philharmonic, The Philadelphia Orchestra and more. This one was just as polished as any of those.” During the 2018/ 19 season, Aspinall led Jacksonville Symphony in two masterworks subscription programs and a tour with organist Cameron Carpenter. He was selected as one of two conducting fellows at the Tanglewood Music

Festival during the summer of 2019. Formerly, Aspinall held the position of Young Conductor with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra in Australia, where he assisted Chief Conductor Johannes Fritzsch and visiting guest conductors, and where he conducted concerts for the orchestra’s education series. He studied French horn and conducting at the University of Queensland and upon graduation was awarded the Hugh Brandon Prize. In 2012, he attended the Aspen Music Festival, where he was awarded the Robert J. Harth Conducting Prize. Aspinall has guest-conducted several symphony orchestras, as well as the Queensland Conservatorium Chamber Orchestra. Festival appearances and masterclasses have included the Cabrillo Festival of Contemporary Music, Oregon Bach Festival and the Tanglewood Music Center Conducting Seminar. He studied Orchestral Conducting at New England Conservatory in Boston.

TUCKER BIDDLECOMBE Chorus Director

ow entering his fourth season as director of the Nashville Symphony Chorus, Dr. Tucker Biddlecombe has raised the bar of excellence for Nashville’s premier choral ensemble through intense musical preparation, diverse programming and community building. Under his direction, the Chorus has expanded to 170 members and recently toured Prague, Czech Republic, performing Orff’s Carmina Burana. He also serves as Associate Professor and Director of Choral Studies at Vanderbilt University’s Blair School of Music, where he directs the Vanderbilt Chorale and Symphonic Choir and teaches courses in choral conducting and music education. Biddlecombe’s work with the Nashville Symphony has included chorus preparation for the world-premiere recording of John Harbison’s Requiem (Naxos) and concert performances of choral orchestral masterworks by Stravinsky, Ravel, Haydn, Verdi, Handel and Mahler. He conducts the orchestra and chorus in performance during the annual Voices of Spring concert. In 2018 the Vanderbilt Chorale released its first solo

album, Music in the Listening Place (Navona), with Gramophone UK noting that the Chorale “launch into each track with the earnest passion that only university music students can innocently and genuinely provide.” Biddlecombe made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2019 conducting Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna. A passionate advocate of music education and a veteran teacher, Biddlecombe is active in school music programs, working with teachers as a side-by side coach with Metro Nashville Public Schools. In 2019 he completed a residency with the Central Conservatory in Beijing, China, where he was honored to work with student and professional choral educators. He is in demand as a conductor and clinician, having served as a clinician to choirs in 25 states. A native of Buffalo, New York, Biddlecombe is a graduate of SUNY Potsdam and Florida State University, where he completed doctoral studies in choral conducting and music education with André Thomas.

ABOUT THE ARTIST TRISHA YEARWOOD

F

ollowing three decades in the spotlight, numerous GRAMMY®, CMA and ACM Awards, countless multi-Platinum certifications and millions of fans entertained, the same passion still motivates and moves Trisha Yearwood. The singer, actress, author, chef, personality and entrepreneur derives deep fulfillment from walking up to a microphone and pouring her heart out with her celebrated powerhouse voice. In 2019, she continued that tradition with Let’s Be Frank, a collection of Frank Sinatra covers and one original. In June, she unveiled her highly anticipated new single, “Every Girl in This Town,” setting the stage for the 2019 release of her first full-length country record in over a decade,

Every Girl. The first single achieved both the highest debut and biggest add day of her career, and amplified excitement for the album. Out now, the record upholds and extends her legacy for a new generation of fans. At the same time, Yearwood remains a timeless entertainer whose influence permeates multiple facets of culture. Beyond 12 studio albums, she hosts the EMMY Award-winning Food Network hit show Trisha’s Southern Kitchen and her Facebook Live “pre-show,” T’s Coffee Talk. At the forefront of a veritable lifestyle empire, Yearwood has penned three New York Times-bestselling cookbooks and has designed cookware, furniture, home accessories and area rugs. She has also collaborated with Williams Sonoma on her signature, bestselling cocktail mixes, as well as a variety of food products ranging from a signature biscuit mix to a complete Thanksgiving dinner.

Thank you to Mariachi Los Potrillos for performing before the concert Mariachi Los Potrillos was founded in the summer of 2018. The group was formed to provide a continuation of mariachi education for those students who have graduated from local music programs seeking to continue the study of the genre, as well as those students who seek higher studies in this art form. It has now grown into a semi-professional group to serve its community. Los Potrillos has performed in different events throughout Nashville, from intimate family settings to popular venues such as Plaza Mariachi, all the way to the Ryman Auditorium. The group is focused on the goal of creating and encouraging musicians who wish to flourish in this traditionally filled genre. Mariachi Los Potrillos is very honored to join you this evening and to share with you their passion for music.

ABOUT THE ARTIST AHMAD JAMAL

A

hmad Jamal was born on July 2, 1930, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, home to many artists known around the world over for their work and contributions to both European classical music and American classical music — the term Jamal prefers for jazz. He began playing piano at age 3, the same age Erroll Garner started, and attended the same elementary and high schools as Garner. Jamal embarked on his formal studies with noted educator Mary Cardwell Dawson, who was responsible for the first AfricanAmerican artists joining the Metropolitan Opera Company. When Dawson moved to Washington, D.C., Jamal continued his studies

with James Miller, a contemporary of Earl Wild, both Pittsburgh natives. By age 10, Jamal was composing, orchestrating and performing works by Franz Liszt and exploring the music of Duke Ellington, Art Tatum, Nat Cole, Garner and a host of other music notables. He immersed himself fully in learning the American Song Book, quickly amassing a huge repertoire and catching the attention of his senior Pittsburgh masters. Quickly hired on, he joined the American Federation of Musicians at 14, when the minimum age requirement was 16. Jamal left home at 17, at the request of the George Hudson Orchestra, which included Clark Terry and orchestrator Ernie Wilkins, and began touring the country. The touring schedule included numerous major theaters throughout the United States, notably the historic Apollo Theater in New York —

where Jamal took the stage with the orchestra at only 18 — and the Howard Theater in Washington, D.C. In 1951, he formed his own group and, with the help of John Hammond, started his recording career with Okeh Records. That career has continued for more than six decades and has resulted in one of the most successful recordings in the history of instrumental music, The Ahmad Jamal Trio, at The Pershing. Music from that recording was chosen by longtime fan Clint Eastwood for The Bridges of Madison County and featured prominently in The Wolf of Wall Street. It is also used by dance companies all over the world and continues to make musical history. Jamal has been the recipient of numerous awards and recognitions, including a 2017 GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award, the NEA Masters Award, Kennedy Center Legend Award and honors from both the

French government and Malaysia. In 2015, he was awarded an honorary Doctor of Music degree from the New England Conservatory of Music, which reads: “Ahmad Jamal, Jazz pianist, one of the foremost leaders of small ensembles.” An American Jazz Master, Jamal is renowned for his exquisite touch, profound grace and mercurial improvisational choices. He has been hailed as an innovative great who drew from and influenced idioms from the big band era to bebop to cool jazz to electronic styles, and he inspired such important figures as Miles Davis, McCoy Tyner and Herbie Hancock. One of the most sampled composers and recording artists in the world, Jamal is still recording and producing artists, and released latest record, Ballades, in September. He has been a Steinway Artist for over a half century.

2019 COMPOSER LAB & WORKSHOP

SHAPING THE FUTURE OF AMERICAN ORCHESTRAL MUSIC The Nashville Symphony welcomed five young composers from across the U.S. on September 3-5, 2019, for the third installment of its Composer Lab & Workshop. One of the most comprehensive programs of its kind anywhere, Composer Lab is designed to identify and cultivate the next generation of great composers and provide them with an intensive, hands-on learning experience that covers every facet of working with a major American orchestra. Over the course of three days, composers Jack Frerer, Jared Miller, Brian Raphael Nabors, Niloufar Nourbakhsh and SiHyun Uhm participated in reading sessions with Symphony musicians, workshops on music business essentials and performing rights, and mentoring sessions with Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero, Workshop Director Aaron Jay Kernis and composers Gabriela Lena Frank and Kip Winger. “If we want classical music to remain relevant to current and future audiences, we have a duty to open up opportunities for the next generation of musicians and composers,” notes Guerrero. “This conviction is at the heart of the Nashville Symphony’s mission and vision, and the Composer Lab & Workshop is a direct outgrowth of that commitment.” The program culminated with a free public performance of all five composers’ works by the Nashville Symphony on September 4. Maestro Guerrero has commited to featuring all five of the works on future Classical Series programs, beginning in the 2020/21 season. Learn more about the program, and the participants, at NashvilleSymphony.org/ComposerLab.

PROGRAM SUMMARY Composers may seem to create their singular visions in isolation, but the task of bringing new music to life depends on engagement with long-standing traditions, with other performers and sometimes with other composers. This program is built around two pairs of composers who share certain attitudes and practices. Dvořák and Brahms were actual contemporaries. The former’s Slavonic Dances paved the way for his international breakthrough, and their publication was facilitated by a helpful word from Brahms — who supplied the folk music model from which his colleague drew. Around the same time, Brahms composed his Violin Concerto with helpful advice from its intended soloist, in the process creating one of the most beloved concertos in the repertoire. John Adams came of age in a New England environment very similar to that of Charles Ives. His musical outlook, moreover, shows important affinities for the bracingly original, one-of-a-kind soundscapes that his predecessor pioneered in such masterpieces as Three Places in New England. With My Father Knew Charles Ives, Adams says, “I made public my homage to him in a piece of musical autobiography, my own Proustian madeleine with a mischievous title.”

fter starting out his career playing viola in a dance orchestra, Antonín Dvořák focused on his ambitions as a composer. In 1874, he started competing regularly to win an annual Austrian government prize earmarked for “young, talented and poor artists.” The prize was administered by a committee in the imperial capital of Vienna, whose selection jury included Johannes Brahms and the powerful critic Eduard Hanslick. They were both so impressed by the Bohemian composer’s gifts

— especially by his entry for 1877, a setting of Moravian folk poetry for vocal duet and piano — that they became enthusiastic supporters. Brahms even recommended Dvořák to his publisher, Simrock. The latter had been delighted by the commercial success of Brahms’ own first series of Hungarian Dances, which he published in 1869. These pieces had become a runaway hit, feeding a trendy appetite for what the public perceived as “exotic” musical flavors and boosting Simrock’s profile in INCONCERT

the process. The publisher realized he could capitalize on this taste and therefore asked Dvořák to write something along those lines, drawing on folk styles from his corner of the vast Habsburg Empire. Dvořák responded with a set of eight Slavonic Dances. He wrote them at great speed, preparing piano duets for the lucrative household music-making market, as well as orchestrated versions. These Slavonic Dances accomplished just what Simrock was hoping for, and his relatively small fee for the young Czech composer meant another handsome profit for the publisher. The rapturous reception also made Dvořák’s international reputation, thus paving the way toward future successes. “Here, at long last, is a 100 percent talent and, what’s more, a completely natural talent,” raved one of the Berlin critics. The Slavonic Dances were performed across Europe and even in New York. Simrock published the first set as Op. 46 in 1878; he later requested a sequel set, resulting in the additional eight Slavonic Dances that appeared as Op. 72 in 1886.

espite the Brahmsian model, Dvořák developed his own approach for the Slavonic Dances. He focused generally on Czech idioms in the Op. 46 set and then expanded his palette to include Eastern European folk styles for the subsequent set. Brahms had simply arranged preexisting tunes, but Dvořák thought up melodies of his own that merely sounded like folk music transcriptions. His forms are also more extensive than the miniatures represented by Brahms’ dances. The Dance No. 1, in C major, provides a celebratory entrée into the world of the Slavonic Dances. Its specifically Czech aspect is manifest in the lively dance style known as a furiant (Czech for “a proud, swaggering, conceited person”). A telltale characteristic of the furiant, used for couple-dances, is a shifting rhythmic emphasis, so that the meter seems undecided as to whether it’s in triple or duple time. Dvořák’s bright orchestration generates a spirit of unbridled joy. In the final measures, he kicks the presto pace into even higher gear. The Op. 46 Slavonic Dance No. 1 is scored for piccolo, flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, cymbals, bass drum, triangle and strings.

reckoned the concerto to be your own…I was certainly your most enraptured listener,” Brahms wrote to Joseph Joachim, recalling the first time he experienced the violinist’s playing: in Hamburg, when Brahms was only 14 and Joachim was 16. The work was the Beethoven Violin Concerto, which left its mark on the contribution Brahms himself went on to make to the genre. In the summer and early fall of 1878, Brahms composed his Violin Concerto in the same idyllic, Alpine setting in southern Austria where he had finished his Second Symphony the previous summer. Both works share a beguiling mix of passion, serenity and playfulness that welcomes comparisons with his titanic predecessor Beethoven, while also swerving away to trace new directions. Brahms composed the concerto for Joachim, one of the greatest virtuosos of his age. As the conductor and scholar Leon Botstein notes: “[Brahms] wanted to find a way to reconcile the most serious aspirations of instrumental music with the visceral power associated with the display of virtuoso technique.” As a result, he was accused at first of writing a concerto “against the violin.” Several features echo Beethoven’s Violin Concerto (also in D major): the dramatic heightening of expectations for the soloist’s entry following an extensive orchestral introduction, the epic span of the first movement, the rapturous

lyricism of the Adagio, and the expressive focus on the instrument’s high register. Yet Brahms arguably goes even further than Beethoven in synthesizing the concerto format — which is by definition based on the interplay between solo display and the larger ensemble — by incorporating the symphonic form’s integrated textures, grand architecture and continuous development of ideas. In fact, Brahms originally envisioned a four-movement, quasi-symphonic plan for the Violin Concerto, later transferring a scherzo he had projected for the piece to his Second Piano Concerto.

he broad opening theme hints at a kind of cosmic waltz and sets the stage for the first movement’s wide expanse. Yet the Violin Concerto intertwines both the epic and the dramatic. Brahms brings the music to a boil of churning figures just before the soloist makes her entrance in a passionate monologue. The seriousness of the moment is enhanced by a turn to the minor. After a prolonged meditation on the opening material, Brahms entrusts the soloist with a new theme that establishes a lyrical counterweight to the music’s epic and dramatic qualities. The rest of the movement continually realigns these ideas, exploring the implications of this contrast — another lesson Brahms learned from Beethoven’s model. Instead of writing a cadenza, Brahms left this INCONCERT

space open for Joachim to provide his own. Many violinists have written substitutes, but Joachim’s remains the most frequently heard. In the transition to the movement’s coda, the violin soars to new heights as the “soul” of the music in a glowing passage that never fails to transport audiences. Brahms’ elaborately wrought integration of the orchestra — never a mere backup band — is apparent even in the relatively simple song form of the Adagio. The exquisite woodwind writing provides a new background against which the violin elaborates the melody, now in an intimate dialogue with the other players. Following the Adagio’s seraphic lyricism, the finale pays tribute to Joachim’s Hungarian origins. It uses a rondo format based on an earthy, vigorous main theme that continually

returns. Double-stop writing for the violin emphasizes its rousing character and serves up a lusty invitation to what is almost an additional Hungarian Dance. Yet moments that echo the weightiness and drama from the first movement occasionally emerge, ensuring a sense of organic unity and inter-connection across the large expanse of this concerto. In the coda, Brahms rearranges the rhythmic pattern of the theme into excited outbursts of triplets. Such constantly fresh thinking, according to Botstein, “helped to transform expectations of what a violin can sound like in the concerto setting.” In addition to the solo violin, the Concerto calls for pairs of flutes, oboes, clarinets and bassoons; 4 horns; 2 trumpets; timpani; and strings.

Gomyo participated as violinist, host, and narrator in The Mysteries of the Supreme Violin, a documentary produced by NHK Japan about Antonio Stradivarius. She is deeply interested in the Nuevo Tango music of Astor Piazzolla and performs with Piazzolla’s longtime pianist and tango legend Pablo Zieglerand, along with his partners Hector del Curto, Claudio Ragazzi and Pedro Giraudo. She also performs regularly with the Finnish guitarist Ismo Eskelinen, with whom she has appeared at the Dresden and Mainz Festivals in Germany, and in recitals in Helsinki and New York. Gomyo plays on the “Aurora, exFoulis” Stradivarius violin of 1703 that was bought for her exclusive use by a private sponsor.

xamples of autobiographically inspired composition abound in the standard repertoire, from Berlioz’s love-obsessed Symphonie fantastique to the poses Richard Strauss assumes in Ein Heldenleben. Yet in My Father Knew Charles Ives, John Adams intertwines his own life experiences with references to a predecessor with whom he shares some notable parallels. Moreover, the specific work to which Adams alludes — Three Places in New England — is itself shot through with autobiographical traces. It’s interesting to note the personal parallels between these two composers. Both came of age in rural New England and were initially trained in music by their respective fathers, who were themselves active musicians performing at home in vernacular styles. Adams grew up with ears wide open to popular and classical music, “with little prejudice toward the one at the expense of the other,” as he remarks in his memoirs, Hallelujah Junction. Adams’ own musical worldview has frequently been compared with the fiercely independent outlook of Ives. He moved west to find his own path at the start of his career, instead of accommodating the academic establishment or the modern European avant-garde. “Ives’ music, for all its daring experiments in rhythm and polyphony, always mixed the sublime with the vulgar and sentimental, and

he did so with a freedom and insouciance that could only be done by an American,” Adams observes, adding that “this has always been a model for me.” Along with such affinities, the composer points to some traits shared by his father and Charles Ives — though, in fact, neither knew the other in real life. But if the timing had differed by just a few years, “the two Yankees might well have met, and it’s not unlikely that they would have become good friends,” Adams explains. “Both were businessmen by day and artists by night. I imagine them exchanging a wry comment in front of the town post office, or, rake in hand, lending each other some help after the first October frost.” As part of its musical autobiography, My Father Knew Charles Ives includes a poignant tribute to the composer’s late father, who had died in the 1990s. His memory is embedded, in particular, in the second movement. The work additionally acknowledges Ives himself as an enormously influential forbear. Adams came to know his music in intricate detail from his repertoire as a conductor. “I drew much from my firsthand experience with Ives,” he writes. In On the Transmigration of Souls, Adams’ Pulitzer Prize-winning commission to commemorate the victims of 9/11, he made creative use of the orchestral techniques

he had learned from Ives. With My Father Knew Charles Ives, the composer’s next major orchestral work, “I made public my homage to him in a piece of musical autobiography, my own Proustian madeleine with a mischievous title.” Adams has used the term “symphony” sparingly for his large-scale orchestral compositions. Like Ives in his later works (including Three Places in New England), he develops forms on the basis of a composition’s specific material. But My Father Knew Charles Ives, which was written on a commission from the San Francisco Symphony, is crafted with symphonic intricacy and exploits Adams’ mastery of orchestral color and design.

T

he model of Ives’ Three Places in New England suggested a three movement structure. The title of the first movement, “Concord,” calls to mind one of Ives’ epic Piano Sonata No. 2 (titled Concord, Mass., 1840-60), an ode to the Transcendentalist writers whom Ives admired. It also alludes to Concord, New Hampshire, one of the small towns where Adams grew up. Like the first movement of Three Places, “Concord” begins with quiet, reflective music, here evoking the perfectly preserved memory of an idyllic summer morning shrouded in mist. As a conductor, Adams writes, he has spent lots of time interpreting Ives’ Fourth Symphony and Three Places in New England and admiring the composer’s unique musical Impressionism, with its “highly refined sense of foreground, middle ground and background, an ordering of musical ideas according to their imagined placement in a perspective, just as a painter might fill a canvas with a mix of images.” Similar techniques are at work throughout My Father Knew Charles Ives. So is the gesture of embedding musical allusions rich in

associations. The solo trumpet’s melody, which stretches over a wide, expressive span, quotes the “question” (posed by the same instrument) in Ives’ short tone poem The Unanswered Question — which Adams suggests “is to Americans what the fournote tattoo of Beethoven’s Fifth is to the Old World.” As the march picks up, Adams exhibits his mischievously humorous streak, and we hear snatches of other “familiar” tunes that are actually “as fictive as the title itself.” Adams’ memories of childhood and of his father as a younger man blend in “The Lake” — a “summer nocturne” inspired by the dance hall pavilion on a lake that was run by his mother’s stepfather. His parents first met there when Carl Adams turned up to play with a touring swing band. A long winding solo oboe melody, tinged with melancholy reverie, emerges against the echoing band sounds, much as Adams describes in his observation of Ivesian technique: “Objects, be they fragments or tunes, atmospheric effects or enormous blocks of sound, appear on the listener’s radar as if the composer were moving faders in a grand mix.” The third and longest movement, “The Mountain,” refers again to “Concord ” before pressing on, with mounting, ecstatic momentum, to its genuinely Adamsian epiphany. Here, the implicit landscape conflates Mount Kearsarge — visible from behind his boyhood home in New Hampshire and an allure to his “adolescent mythic imagination” — with the snow-covered Californian peak of Mount Shasta, which Adams once observed with awe during a hike with his son Sam. My Father Knew Charles Ives is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), piccolo, 2 oboes, English horn, 3 clarinets (3rd doubling E-flat clarinet), bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, 4 percussionists, piano, celesta, harp and strings.

omewhere in Ives, the entire history of American music can be found, whether it’s a Copland or a Gershwin or a John Adams moment,” Michael Tilson Thomas has said of this archetypal American maverick composer. Coming of age in post-Civil War New England, Ives stored a treasury of musical experiences from folk traditions and ordinary life on which he later drew. Three Places in New England might be viewed as a gathering of the topics that fascinated this highly original composer: autobiographical memories, American history, American cultural identity and the myths that have shaped it. Musically, Three Places similarly manifests Ives’ adventurous outlook by generating collagelike soundscapes from traditional sources, wildly experimental harmonies and a complex layering of events happening simultaneously. “Ives was the first composer to approach the orchestral setting as if it were a giant mixing board,” as John Adams puts it. Three Places dates from the incredibly productive decade (starting in 1908), during which Ives poured out several of his most significant creations — all during while running the successful life insurance company he established in 1907. Characteristically, the complicated genesis of Three Places spread out in different stages

over many years, as reflected by the many changing titles Ives applied to the composition as a whole and its three movements. At one point, Ives considered including a fourth movement involving the Boston abolitionist Wendell Phillips. He drew on a pair of sketches going back to 1903 for the second movement and wrote the first versions of the other two in 1911. But the music went unheard until the conductor Nicolas Slonimsky offered to perform it, on condition that Ives prepare a reduced version for chamber orchestra. Slonimsky’s 1931 premiere of this version, long after Ives composed it, was pivotal in establishing the legend of Ives the innovator and has since become one of his best-known works. He continued revising for the first published version, but his original scoring for a larger orchestra had to be re-created, in part, by the Ives specialist James Sinclair, who wrote in his preface to his first critical edition: “In this study, I have compared the published chamber orchestra score with surviving portions of the original score for full orchestra and with earlier sources and sketches, in order to develop a new score for full orchestra which retains both the work’s original color and the advantages of Ives’ later revisions.” A quest for self-reliant, American alternatives to Old World forms led Ives to envision

various kinds of “symphony.” With his earlier Second and Third Symphonies, according to biographer Jan Swafford, “Ives created, singlehandedly, the nationalistic art music for which Dvořák had called,” though Ives “would denounce [this] as ‘the old medieval idea of nationalism.’ ” He then decided to proceed in a different direction by grouping together self-standing pieces into “sets.” Ives referred to Three Places by other titles as well: A New England Symphony and First Orchestral Set. Though each of the three “places” in this set originated independently, they together form what Slonimsky famously described as “transcendental geography by a strange Yankee genius.”

he title of the first movement, “St. Gaudens” in Boston Common (Col. Shaw and his Colored Regiment), refers to the 1897 bronze relief sculpture of Colonel Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts 54th Regiment made by the American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to commemorate the Union Army’s famous all-African-American regiment (also the topic of the 1989 film Glory). Ives additionally referred to this piece as his Black March. If he had carried through with his idea of a fourth movement about a powerful abolitionist, the presence of the African-American experience in Three Places would have acquired even more prominence. The march impulse emerges beneath the impressionistic veil of opaque harmonies heard at the outset and establishes a mood of solemnity, while fragments of old popular tunes are woven in and out of the orchestral fabric. March idioms come to the fore with dramatically contrasting results in the second movement, Putnam’s Camp, Redding, Connecticut. This “place” presents a feast of signature Ivesian techniques: simultaneous

36

strands of different music superimposed, quotations of well-known songs (such as “Yankee Doodle”) to elicit memories of patriotic holidays, and shocking dissonances to “defamiliarize” the unfamiliar. He combines these elements into a miniature drama that has visionary moments but is framed by an outrageous, boisterously comic spirit. Ives wrote out a scenario in the score involving a child at a Fourth of July picnic who goes off wandering as the bands march along. A mysterious chord punctuates the soundscape, marking the moment when the child is confronted by an apparition of the “Goddess Liberty,” whose “face is sorrowful: she is pleading with the soldiers not to forget their ‘cause’ and the great sacrifices they have made for it. But they march out of camp with fife and drum to a popular tune of the day. Suddenly, a new national note is heard. [Revolutionary War hero] Putnam is coming over the hills from the center. The soldiers turn back and cheer. The little boy awakes, he hears the children’s songs and runs down past the monument to listen to the band and join in the games and dances.” The Housatonic at Stockbridge — shortest of the three sets — begins with quietly reflective music, somewhat like the opening St. Gaudens, but the complex layering of textures and rhythms generates an even more impressionistic aura. Gradually, the music builds to a mighty climax but then gently evaporates — though the memories remain firmly, transcendently implanted. In this performance, we hear the second critical edition published in 2008 by James Sinclair, which is scored for 3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (2nd doubling English horn), 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, gong, 2 harps, piano, celesta, organ pedals and strings. — Thomas May is the Nashville Symphony’s program annotator.

ABOUT DON WILLIAMS

K

nown by many as “The Gentle Giant,” Don Williams is once again, through 21st century technology, gracing famed stages across the world. Don Williams: Music & Memories of the Gentle Giant takes audiences on a musical journey from Africa to Ireland and beyond. This multimedia event includes original members of the Country Music Hall of Fame® singer’s band playing live, all featuring Don’s vocal performance on a large screen above the stage. The concert experience is one-of-a-kind and has never been done in the history of country music. Keith Urban serves as the show’s curator and appears onscreen to introduce the performance. Williams dominated the charts throughout the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s with his unique blend of commanding presence and laid-back, easy

style. Don’s career earned him Country Music Association Male Vocalist of the Year and Academy of Country Music Album of the Year honors while racking up a string of No. 1 hits. This special presentation includes Williams performing “Good Ole Boys Like Me,” “Amanda,” “Lord, I Hope This Day Is Good,” You’re My Best Friend,” “It Must Be Love,” “I’m Just a Country Boy,” “Till the Rivers All Run Dry,” “Some Broken Hearts Never Mend” and many more. Williams first came to prominence in the 1960s as a member of the folk group the Pozo-Seco Singers. The trio recorded several hit records, with the biggest being “Time.” By 1971, Williams had gone solo and had signed a publishing deal with Jack Clement.

style that he offered the singer a recording contract with JMI Records in 1972. Early hits included “Atta Way to Go” and “Come Early Morning,” as well as “We Should Be Together,” which became his first Billboard Top 10 hit in 1974. Williams moved to ABC/Dot (later MCA), where the hits continued. Tracks such as “Rake and Ramblin’ Man,” “Tulsa Time” and “Nobody but You” helped to make him one of the most played artists on country radio in the 1970s and ’80s. He took home the Male Vocalist of the Year trophy from the Country Music Association in 1978 and notched his biggest hit in 1981 with “I Believe in You,” which also crossed over to the Top 30 on the Hot 100. Subsequent moves to Capitol Nashville and RCA kept Williams on the charts into the 1990s, as he continued to play for huge crowds on the road. His success in the United States is well documented, but his songs saw

no borders, making him an international star with followings in Africa, the U.K., Australia and New Zealand. He placed 52 Top 40 singles in the country charts in the United States, with 38 making the Top 5 and 17 going all the way to the top spot. Williams was a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame® and the Grand Ole Opry. He appeared in the films W.W. and the Dixie Dancekings and Smokey & The Bandit II with acclaimed actor Burt Reynolds, and he was a guest performer on the hit TV show The Dukes of Hazzard. In 2006, Williams’ career was recognized once more when he received the Academy of Country Music’s Cliffie Stone Icon award, distinguishing him as a pioneer in country music. Though he is revered as a songwriter’s singer and an artist’s artist, to his fans, Don Williams’ baritone voice just simply sings to us a gentle and loving life.
