Letter From the President of the Board

Table of Contents

As we continue our exciting third season, I want to say hello from the recently elected Board officers. The NMPhil Board elected officers at the annual meeting in September. They are: Ruth Bitsui, Vice President of Operations; Larry Lubar, Vice President of Development; Tom Bird, Secretary/Treasurer; and myself, President. Our outgoing President, Evan Rice, and Secretary/Treasurer, Clarke Cagle, will remain as members of our advisory board, continuing to provide support and guidance. We thank them for their dedicated and important work during our formative years. Near the conclusion of last season, we surveyed our key stakeholders (about 2,400 donors, audience members, volunteers, sponsors, and musicians) and almost one third replied, a very high and statistically significant number. The survey showed us areas to improve, notably getting more information out about our mission and values, the Board’s processes, and the need to continue to brand the NMPhil in the community. Even more importantly, 87.5 percent are satisfied or very satisfied with the NMPhil, and most importantly, 92 percent feel the NMPhil’s concerts demonstrate artistic excellence. For the musicians as a sub-group, 77 percent agree that the Board and management value and respect them. Most understand the mission and values, feel the community has a positive perception of the NMPhil, and are satisfied or very satisfied with the NMPhil. We are gratified with these levels of initial satisfaction and will continue to improve our work and processes to reach even higher levels of satisfaction in the coming year. In October the Board and several key stakeholders participated in our second annual strategic planning retreat where we reviewed in depth where the NMPhil should be headed and how to get there. We reaffirmed our core values, especially our value of responsibility in all our actions, and reviewed progress on our four strategic objectives and their supporting action plans: maturing the organization, retaining and developing the musicians, developing the future audience, and planning for a future home. Most of the action plans developed in 2012 are now completed. We are now finalizing new action plans to advance the strategic objectives that will continue to address our strategic advantages and challenge. Through this planning and its implementation your Board is taking the necessary action to assure the NMPhil is here for the long-term. We will be here for our children, grandchildren and beyond, to perform world-class music for this community. Part of creating a permanent presence is our work beyond the concert hall. Our education program reached thousands of children in the community with music education. From our Young Musician Initiative to concerts in high schools, we are not only bringing classical orchestral music to children, we are also enriching their lives now and developing the NMPhil’s audience of the future. Investing in this work is great for the community now and affirms our long-term tenure. Thanks for your support in all the New Mexico Philharmonic does.

Aaron Copland

Born 1900, Brooklyn, New York Died 1990, Tarrytown, New York

El Salón México (1933–1936)

Aaron Copland spent a great deal of time in Mexico, in fact, traveling to the United States’ neighbor to the south was one of Copland’s most enjoyable travel destinations. He first traveled there in 1932, when his good friend, Mexican nationalist composer Carlos Chávez, suggested a Mexican sojourn. Copland spent two months in Mexico during his first visit, and decided at that time he would like to write a piece incorporating Mexican tunes into an orchestral work. This would be Copland’s first foray into what would later be referred to as his “populist” phase. The idea behind musical populism was to incorporate simple tunes into sophisticated musical forms—thereby attracting larger audiences for new music. Copland’s inspiration for El Salón México was a Mexican dance hall of the same name. Copland has said of the hall: I remember reading about it for the first time in a tourist guidebook: ‘Harlem type nightclub for the peepul [sic], grand Cuban orchestra. Three halls: one for people dressed in your way, one for people dressed in overalls but shod, and one for the barefoot.’ When I got there, I also found a sign on the wall which said: ‘Please don’t throw lighted cigarette butts on the floor so the ladies don’t burn their feet.’ … In some inexplicable way, while milling about in those crowded halls, one really felt a live contact with the Mexican people the electric sense one sometimes gets in far-off places, of suddenly knowing the essence of a people their humanity, their separate shyness, their dignity and unique charm. Copland freely uses several Mexican melodies which he chose based on their harmonic and rhythmic structures, as well as the “local flair” contained within each. Copland says, “Bands played a kind of music that was harsh, flavorsome, screechy and potentially violent. El Salón México is, I suppose, a sort of musical souvenir.”

“I felt nervous about what the Mexicans might think of a ‘gringo’ meddling with their native melodies [but] the orchestral players … suddenly stopped what they were doing and began to applaud vigorously.” —Aaron Copland

Copland first completed a two-piano version of El Salón México in 1934. Carlos Chávez conducted the premiere orchestral performance in 1937 with the Orquesta Sinfónica de México. Initially, Copland was concerned that his work would be considered offensive to the Mexican musicians, but his fears were quickly laid to rest. The composer recalls, “I felt nervous about what the Mexicans might think of a ‘gringo’ meddling with their native melodies … [but] at the first of the final rehearsals that I attended … as I entered the hall the orchestral players, who were in the thick of a Beethoven symphony, suddenly stopped what they were doing and began to applaud vigorously.” El Salón México was also successful in the United States, and became Copland’s first work to be recorded. It was recorded in 1938 by the Boston Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Serge Koussevitsky. ●

be the piano soloist for the G Major Concerto and take the piece on an extended world tour, but failing health prevented him from doing so. Instead, the pianist Marguerite Long premiered the concerto in Paris on January 14, 1932, with the Orchestre Lamoureux and Ravel conducting. Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major is a potpourri of musical influences and styles. From Basque and Spanish tunes, to American jazz, to French musical sensibilities, the G Major Piano Concerto runs the musical gamut. Ravel spoke of his concerto, “My only wish was to write a genuine concerto—that is, a brilliant work, clearly highlighting the soloist’s virtuosity, without seeking to show profundity. As a model I took two musicians who, in my opinion, best illustrated this type of composition: Mozart and Saint-Saëns.” ●

Maurice Ravel

Born 1841, Tikhvin, Russia Died 1908, Lyubensk, Russia

Born 1875, Ciboure, France Died 1937, Paris, France

Piano Concerto in G Major (1929–1931) Ravel’s last two major works were both for the piano—the G Major Piano Concerto being performed today, and his Piano Concerto for the Left Hand, written for war veteran and concert pianist Paul Wittgenstein. Ravel had originally planned to

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov

Capriccio espagnol, Op. 34 (1887) Rimsky-Korsakov’s Capriccio espagnol was originally conceived by the composer as a showpiece for violin and orchestra. He abandoned that notion, and instead, made a showpiece for the entire symphony, filled with virtuosic writing for nearly every section of the orchestra. He provides cadenzas and extended solos for the violin, continued on 6

The New Mexico Philharmonic


Program Notes . continued from 5 flute, clarinet, horns, trumpets, and harp. As with all of Rimsky-Korsakov’s music, it is brilliantly orchestrated and filled with wide-ranging orchestral colors. He wrote of his orchestrational achievement, “The change of timbres, the felicitous choice of melodic designs and figuration patterns, exactly suiting each kind of instrument, the brief virtuoso cadenzas for solo instruments, the rhythm of the percussion instruments and so on, here constitute the very essence of the composition, and not its clothing, i.e., orchestration.” Capriccio espagnol premiered October 13, 1887, with the St. Petersburg orchestra performing, and Rimsky-Korsakov conducting. The work is broken into five movements, but with two larger divisions— The Alborada, Variations, and second Alborada (in a different key) comprise the first section, followed by the Gypsy Song and Fandango. The work was an immediate success and has remained in the standard orchestral literature ever since its premiere. Tchaikovsky, having received a copy of the score in advance of the premiere, hailed, “… your ‘Spanish Capriccio’ is a colossal masterpiece of instrumentation, and you may regard yourself as the greatest master of the present day.” ●

Maurice Ravel

Boléro (1928) Classical music aficionados usually fall into two categories—those who respect, appreciate, and enjoy Ravel’s Boléro, and those who categorically despise it. Very few are ambivalent to the work’s genius, or lack thereof, depending in which camp the critic lies. Ravel appears to have been keenly aware of the schism the work would have on the audience. He wrote: I am particularly desirous that there should be no misunderstanding about this work. It constitutes an experiment in a very special and limited direction, and should not be suspected of aiming at achieving anything different from or anything more than it actually does achieve. Before its first performance, I issued a warning to the effect that what I had written was a piece lasting about seventeen minutes and consisting wholly of ‘orchestral tissue without music’ - of one long, very gradual crescendo. There are no contrasts, there is practically no invention except the plan and the manner of execution. The themes are altogether 6

impersonal … folk tunes of the usual SpanishArabian kind, and (whatever may have been said to the contrary) the orchestral writing is simple and straightforward throughout, without the slightest attempt at virtuosity … . I have carried out exactly what I intended, and it is for listeners to take it or leave it. The “experiment” began with a commission from the ballerina Ida Rubinstein who was looking for a new work for her troupe. Ms. Rubinstein’s dance that corresponded to the music of Boléro was fairly racy for the time, and caused its own series of problems irrespective of the music. However, the ballet did not last in popularity, but when Boléro began being performed regularly in concert halls, that is when Ravel’s name and reputation took off. How exactly does Ravel maintain a steady crescendo for approximately seventeen minutes? It’s all related to his orchestration, instrumentation, and eccentric combinations of instruments. The snare drum plays the Bolero rhythm throughout and is the rhythmic center to the piece, as well as the integral leader in gauging the crescendo. The melody is initially played by individual instruments, and as the piece progresses, more and more instruments take up the melodic line until it reaches a nearly fevered pitch. Ravel is quoted as saying, “I have written only one masterpiece. That is the Boléro. Unfortunately, it contains no music.” Half of his audience agrees. However, the other half just as fervently denies Ravel’s selfdeprecating claim. ●

George Frideric Handel Born 1685, Halle, Germany Died 1759, London, England

Messiah (1741) If not for the fickle nature of music critics and audiences alike, Handel may never have written his masterpiece Messiah. Its composition was far less a result of religious obligation or desire for pulchritude, and much more out of necessity to keep up with what was musically de rigueur at the time, not to mention the fundamental need to put food on the table. Handel had lived in England for almost thirty years, writing his bread and butter— Italian opera. His hits were numerous and varied: Rinaldo, Giulio Cesare, Rodelinda, and Xerxes to name just a few. And then, as if overnight, the times and the musical tastes of England changed. Italian opera was no longer the venerated form it once was; aspersions were cast against its convoluted plot lines, ridiculous characters, the posturing of the singers, and so on. England was looking for a more “national” art form. With the composition and success of the Beggar’s Opera by Gay and Pepusch in 1728, that was not only sung in English instead of Italian, but that also brought English popular culture into the form of opera, Italian opera was all but kaput in England. Enter the oratorio. Oratorio and opera have several things in common and seemed to be just what the English had been clamoring for. Oratorio, like opera, contains vocal soloists, a chorus, and an orchestra. Oratorios contain recitatives, arias, vocal ensembles of various sizes, instrumental interludes, etc. What are missing from oratorio, which is of course a mainstay in opera, are costumes, sets, action, and props. Also, the setting is quite different—operas are meant to be performed on a stage of an opera house usually depicting secular subject matter, while oratorios are meant to be performed in concert halls or churches and (usually) convey religious subject matter. Perhaps most importantly in the rise of the popularity of the new genre of the English oratorio—it was sung in English, adding enhancement to the listener’s experience,

who at that time could have never conceived of the current trend of operatic supertitles that we now take for granted. Handel fought against the new trend in music for most of the 1730s. He continued to try and write Italian opera and made a few lackluster attempts at oratorio, until finally his finances had dwindled to an alarming level. Handel was reported gravely ill (an exaggeration), depressed, washed-up, etc. He rarely left his flat and was all but written off by England. That is until he was visited in 1741 by the Duke of Devonshire, the Lord Lieutenant of Dublin, who asked if he would be willing to write a new work

Handel . finished his


in a mere 24 days whose proceeds would benefit several Dublin charities. Handel jumped at the chance to get away from England for a while and the commission seemed to invigorate him to new heights. He used the scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens who drew from the King James Bible and from the Psalms included in the Book of Common Prayer. Jennens wrote of his libretto, “I hope [Handel] will lay out his whole Genius & Skill upon it, that the Composition may excell all his former Compositions, as the Subject excells every other subject. The Subject is Messiah.” Handel finished his Messiah in a mere twenty-four days. After completing the now famous and ubiquitous “Hallelujah Chorus” he ran into a servant and exclaimed, “I did think I did see Heaven before me and the great God Himself!” Handel left for Dublin in November of 1741 and his arrival in Ireland received

an overwhelming response. What was old news in England, was fresh and appreciated in Dublin. This began one of the happiest periods in the composer’s life. There was such a buzz around the composition and premiere of Handel’s Messiah that the rehearsal caused such a stir it forced Faulkner’s Dublin Journal to place the following announcement regarding Messiah’s premiere: “The Stewards of the Charitable Musical Society request the Favour of the Ladies not to come with Hoops [hoop skirts] this Day to the MusickHall in Fishamble Street. The Gentlemen are desired to come without their Swords, as it will greatly encrease the Charity, by making Room for more company.” The work premiered on April 13, 1742, (senza hoop skirts and swords) and was met with rave reviews: “It gave universal Satisfaction to all present; and was allowed by the greatest Judges to be the finest Composition of Musick that ever was heard”—Dublin Journal. This jubilance did not follow Handel or his Messiah back to England. It premiered there about a year after its glorious Dublin review. It did not receive nearly the same reaction in England; in fact, it took more than ten years to finally reach the level of success of which we are now accustom. Many similarities can be drawn between the structure of Handel’s Messiah and that of conventional Italian opera—it is broken into three parts (or acts in an opera equivalent), each of these are broken into what could be construed as “scenes,” broken further down into “movements.” This is where the similarities end. The Messiah is not written in dramatic form and there is very little direct speech included. There is no one character whose mission is narration and instead of someone portraying Jesus, the Messiah is more a commentary on the three periods of Jesus’s life—the Nativity, Passion, and Resurrection. Handel surprisingly wrote the Messiah for a small complement of singers and instrumentalists. As time and musical tastes have developed, so have the musical forces used in Handel’s Messiah; it is not uncommon to see modern performances with upwards of hundreds performing onstage. ●
