ARBOR SERIES

A DELICIOUS JOURNEY

The Arbor Series is a non-profit organization benefitting the Austin Symphony Orchestra


The YLC is celebrating another successful year of dynamic programming for exceptional high school students—the leaders of tomorrow! On September 17, YLC members were inspired by former UT and NFL football player, Cory Redding. Winner of the 2013 ed Block Courage Award and the Indianapolis Colts’ 2012 Man of the Year, his Cory Redding Foundation provides educational opportunities for low-income and at-risk students. On October 22, the YLC was honored to welcome Cecilia Abbott, our cherished First Lady of Texas. She discussed her focus on service, culminating in the creation of her “Texanthropy Initiative” to promote volunteerism. 2018 launched with two remarkable YLC guest presenters. Long-time voice of NewsRadio KLBJ, Ed Clements, spoke of his career in entertainment and his tireless activism on behalf of Alzheimer’s research. Mr. Clements was joined by Beau Armstrong—Chairman, President, and CeO of Stratus Properties, and a nationally-recognized pioneer in environmentally sustainable building and responsible land stewardship. Our final guest for the 2017–18 program series was internationally renowned recording artist Andrew Heller, named the 2015 Breakthrough Artist of the Year by New Music Weekly. Mr. heller is also a former IBM Fellow and president of IBM’s Business Unit. On April 14, the members of the Youth Leadership Council will be recognized at a special pre-concert reception for their participation in a year of tremendous personal growth and community service. One outstanding senior YLC leader will be awarded the $500 Book Scholarship Award. Membership is open to all Austin area high school students in 9th–12th grades.

Notes on the program  Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893) Piano Concerto No. 3 in E - flat Major, Op. 75 Composed 1893 (approx. 16 minutes) Tchaikovsky never really wrote a third piano concerto. In the spring of 1892 he started to write a new symphony in E-flat Major, but by the fall he realized it was going nowhere and told his friends that he had destroyed it because “there is nothing particularly interesting or symphonic in it. I decided to throw it away and forget about it.” It was only through the urging of his nephew Vladimir Davydov that he did not consign it to the fire. But by next summer he decided to use the material for a third piano concerto. He worked on the first movement, finishing the orchestration in October 1893. He still had some serious doubts about the result, considered it “overlong” and thought of issuing it as a one-movement Allegro brilliante. He also sent it to Sergei Taneyev, a composer and brilliant pianist, for evaluation. Taneyev liked it but considered it not virtuosic enough so he fiddled with it. Two weeks later, before he could do anything with it, Tchaikovsky was dead of cholera. The movement was published posthumously in 1894 as Piano Concerto No. 3. Taneyev reworked two more movements left in sketches from the discarded symphony, trying to create a complete concerto, but his attempt, published as Op. 75, never caught on. In his last works, Tchaikovsky seems to have had a penchant for the low register of the orchestra. His Sixth Symphony begins with probably the most dismal introduction in the repertory, a mournful bassoon, bass and cello theme; the Third Piano Concerto also opens with two bassoons, accompanied by timpani, tuba and cellos, but with considerably more energy. The Concerto is all about rhythmic contrast between syncopation and metrical regularity.

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky From Act 3 of The Sleeping Beauty, Op. 66, “Bluebird” Pas de deux (arranged by: Igor Stravinsky) Composed 1888/arr. 1941 (approx. 6 minutes) Tchaikovsky’s first ballet, Swan Lake (1877), was a revolutionary work. Its intensely dramatic score was so demanding for choreographer, dancers, and orchestra that from its premiere, music from other composers was increasingly substituted for Tchaikovsky’s original score. The ballet itself was dropped from the repertoire after 1883 and was only revived in 1895, two years after the composer’s death, and even then in modified form. By 1888, however, with the composer’s reputation now firmly established, such shabby treatment would have been unthinkable. The Imperial Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg commissioned The Sleeping Beauty, promising Tchaikovsky a lavish staging financed by no less a patron than Tsar Alexander III himself. The plot, based on a French 17th -century fairytale, was the work of the director of the Imperial Theatre and consists of a Prologue and three Acts. It offers a combination of high drama, “pure dance,” and character pieces. In 1941, Igor Stravinsky made chamber orchestra arrangements of four excerpts from the ballet, including the “Bluebird” Pas de deux from the third act. He wrote in the liner notes for a recording: “The one novelty, and non-Tchaikovskyan feature of the instrumentation, is the prominent piano part which helps to conceal the small number of strings.” Otherwise, there are fewDownload changes from the original, but they the app: Connect: include the introductory passage from the initial part of the pas de deux.

v  Notes

Sergei Prokofiev (1891–1953) Piano Concerto No. 1 in D-flat major, Op. 10 Composed 1911 (approx. 16 minutes) Sergei Prokofiev was a composer caught between two cultures. Born into an affluent and musical family, he left the Soviet Union in the summer of 1918, shortly after the 1917 revolution. For the next 18 years he toured the United States and lived in Paris, then in the mid -1930s returned to his native country, never to leave again. This is “my first more- or- less mature composition, both in conception and realization,” Prokofiev wrote about his First Piano Concerto. Composed in 1911 while he was still a student at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, and premiered in the following year, the Concerto marked Prokofiev’s first public performance with orchestra. Its spiky dissonances and unromantic tone clashed with the taste of the prevailing musical establishment, and the critics and audience were sharply divided in their opinions. Two years later Prokofiev defied his teachers in using the Concerto—rather than an established work from the repertory—to win the coveted Anton Rubinstein piano prize. The composer commented cynically that most of the 20 judges would be unfamiliar with the work and would, therefore, be hard-pressed to judge his performance. The conservative Alexander Glazunov, who headed the Conservatory, was furious, commenting that to promote such compositions would only encourage “harmful trends.” The Concerto is in one continuous movement, but in three distinct sections, similar to Liszt’s concertos. Like many 19th century works, it is also cyclical, the opening theme serving at the end as the closing theme of the entire work. The thematic structure shows the composer’s fondness of wide leaps and angular melodies that he deliberately conceived to demonstrate his pianistic prowess.

on the program Considering that the romantic concertos and symphonies of Rachmaninoff and Scriabin were the popular works at the time, the Concerto’s harmonies came as a shock. Today, 90 years later, the music sounds quite tame. Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873–1943) Symphony No. 3 in A Minor, Op. 44 Composed 1935–36 (approx. 38 minutes) The premiere performance of Rachmaninoff’s First Symphony took place in St. Petersburg in 1897. It was a dismal failure, in large part due to the shoddy conducting of Alexander Glazunov, who was drunk. The disappointment brought on a severe depression, and for three years Rachmaninoff was unable to do any significant composing. Finally, in 1900 he went for therapy and hypnosis to Dr. Nikolay Dahl. The result was one of the first well-known successes of modern psychotherapy. Rachmaninoff was able to return to creative work, resulting in his Second Piano Concerto, which he dedicated to Dahl. Relapses into depression dogged Rachmaninoff, however, for the rest of his life. Significantly, all his large instrumental compositions, as well as most of the rest of his oeuvre, are in minor keys. Rachmaninoff refused to publish the failed symphony, only acknowledging its existence by calling his next one, composed in 1906‑‑‑07, “No. 2.” It took him nearly 30 years to premiere his Third Symphony, composed in 1935–36, with his favorite orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra under Leopold Stokowski. It was more than his reluctance to write symphonies that caused the long gap between symphonies, With a well‑established reputation as composer, conductor and pianist, Rachmaninoff left Russia in December 1917 with his family, having lost all his property in the revolutionary upheaval. With a family to


Notes on the program  support, he resigned himself to life as a full-time career pianist, leaving little time to compose. The Third Symphony is one of the few works he composed after settling in the West. This Symphony is to some extent a departure from the late-Romantic language of its predecessors. Except for the first movement, which is quite accessible both melodically and formally, the composer’s lush themes and flowing melodies are significantly attenuated. Instead, the musical language is more austere, chromatic and dissonant, also revealing Rachmaninoff’s interest in the qualities of individual instruments. One idiosyncrasy of the Symphony is an abrupt change in tempo and the introduction of new music about halfway through every movement, where the composer goes off on a musical digression—a fast one in the middle of the slow movement, and a slow one in the middle of the allegro movements. The Symphony disappointed the audience and critics, who had expected another “Second.” The lukewarm reception at the premiere, in turn, disappointed the composer, who felt misunderstood. He wrote to a friend after the premiere that the Philadelphia Orchestra played wonderfully. “…both audience and critics responded sourly. Personally I’m convinced that this is a good work. But—sometimes the author is wrong, too! However, I maintain my opinion.” A short motto introduced pianissimo at the opening recurs as a unifying gesture in all three movements—although often greatly disguised. The principal themes are similar in mood and rhythm, although the second represents the works “big tune.” The motto reappears in the brass and later in the strings, also ending the movement on a subdued note. The second movement is a combination of a slow movement and a scherzo at its center. It opens with a variant of the motto on a French horn, accentuated by the harps and with a prominent role for solo violin. Suddenly the tempo quickens and the Scherzo starts with a quick march-like

transformation of the motto. The reprise of the opening Adagio is shorter and concludes with a variant of the motto. The finale opens energetically with a series of rapid key changes, setting up the expectation for one of Rachmaninoff’s broad melodies, but he again disappoints. After the obligatory fugue and recurrences of the motto, the movement finally arrives at a hint of Rachmaninoff’s personal signature, the “Dies irae” from the Gregorian Mass for the Dead.

Fund

SIBLEY ENCORE SOCIETY In recognition of the unparalleled dedication of Jane and D. J. Sibley, Jr., the Sibley Encore Society has been established. Their unwavering support of the Symphony has been crucial to its growth and increased excellence. Jane’s outstanding leadership as President of the Austin Symphony Society from 1971 to 1996 has resulted in the orchestra’s strong community backing and national recognition for its performances and programs. The Sibley Encore Society recognizes those devoted friends of the Austin Symphony who through their wills or other planned gifts help to perpetuate great music for future generations. The Austin Symphony expresses its appreciation to those who have named the Symphony in their wills or established another form of planned gift. ~The Moto Perpetuo Society is a newly established club for loyal and generous donors who recognize the Austin Symphony in their bequests or other long range charitable giving plans, at a level of $100,000 and above.

T

he Austin Symphony Orchestra Society invites you to join our family of supporters. The following categories of gifts to the ASO Annual Fund Drive reflect a cross section of our community. These donors are a special group of music lovers who know that the ASO is to be commended for its prudent financial management as well as for the outstanding performances offered but, also, that ticket sales cover less than one-half the cost of these performances. A gift to our Development Fund generously supports the gift of music to others. Join this special family now: Call (512) 476-6064.

Join us for the 2018-2019 season The season marks new beginnings and continued traditions at Austin Opera.

Verdi's Otello Puts & Campbell's Silent Night Puccini's La bohème 82


512-472-5992 AUSTINOPERA.ORG THE LONG CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS Saturday Nov. 10, 2018 7:30 PM Thursday Nov. 15, 2018 7:30 PM Sunday Nov. 18, 2018 2:30 PM

As a crackling storm rolls into Cyprus, we are introduced to a trio of figures, each based on Shakespeare’s iconic characters: the victorious naval warrior Otello, his faithful wife Desdemona, and his trusted officer Iago. But soon after the rain subsides, the duplicitous Iago preys upon Otello’s insecurity and suspicion by hatching a plot to have Otello question Desdemona’s fidelity, unleashing a passionate tempest of gale force, with powerfully tragic results. This thoughtful tale of personal and political jealousy is a rarely performed masterwork that will leave Austin audiences breathless.

THE LONG CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

This company premiere of the Pulitzer Prize–winning modern classic Silent Night, with music by Kevin Puts and a libretto by Mark Campbell (The Manchurian Candidate, 2016), is based on the 2005 film Joyeux Noël, which was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film.

Saturday Jan. 26, 2019 7:30 PM Thursday Jan. 31, 2019 7:30 PM Sunday Feb. 3, 2019 2:30 PM

Silent Night recounts a miraculous moment of peace during one of the bloodiest wars in human history. The year is 1914 and as Christmas Eve falls, soldiers in French, German, and Scottish trenches begin recalling songs of home, stepping into no-man’s-land for a spontaneous truce.

THE LONG CENTER FOR THE PERFORMING ARTS

Puccini’s sweeping story of young bohemians struggling to fulfill their dreams and find true love contains some of the most beloved music in all of opera. La bohème is frequently referenced in popular culture—from the Academy Award– winning film Moonstruck to the Tony–winning musical Rent— making the story and its music instantly recognizable to even newcomers to opera.

Saturday April 27, 2019 7:30 PM Thursday May 2, 2019 7:30 PM Sunday May 5, 2019 2:30 PM

Austin Opera audiences will soon discover why the Pulitzer committee hailed Silent Night for “displaying versatility of style and cutting straight to the heart.”

This exquisite production is a traditional telling of the classic tale. The City of Light’s snowy streets, drafty tenements, and nightclub diversions come to life in a production certain to linger in the memory long after its final heartrending scene. 83


Opera ATX, powered by Austin Opera, will bring groundbreaking new works, emerging artists, exciting composers, and dynamic directors to Austin.

Opera ATX will explore alternative venues and partnerships around town, starting at the historic Paramount Theatre. We will create the conditions for operatic experiences completely new to Austin, and perhaps completely new to the art form. Driven by Austin Opera’s love of opera, love of audiences, and love of Austin, Opera ATX shows how Austin is shaping its opera company and inspiring innovative experiences.

David T. Little's Soldier Songs PARAMOUNT THEATRE

Friday Saturday Apr. 5, 2019 8:00 PM Apr. 6, 2019 8:00 PM Soldier Songs combines elements of theater, opera, rock-infused concert music, and video by filmmaker Bill Morrison to explore themes of loss, the exploitation of innocence, and the difficulty of expressing the truth of war. The libretto, created by the composer, was adapted from recorded interviews with veterans of five wars. Soldier Songs traces changing perceptions of war in our society and by those who experience it. It is a chilling and realistic view of our media-crazed, war-machine culture, and of the nature of power in war.

A NEW INITIATIVE POWERED BY AUSTIN OPERA

84

With its poignant libretto, driving music, and surprising visual counterpoint, Soldier Songs perfectly represents the promise of Opera ATX: bringing innovative new works, sensational artists, and visionary creative teams to Austin.

A World Apart, A Moment Together One World & TRIAD funds of the San Antonio Area Foundation Connecting Central Texas Military Families One World’s innovative performing arts summer camp program provided scholarships through TRIAD funds of the San Antonio Area Foundation to give kids the opportunity to be a part of the musical production of “Wizard of Oz.” When the campers took the stage every parent, no matter where they were located, including Iraq was able to see their child perform. Using amazing video technology generously provided by a partnership with LifeSize Communications, seven military bases were connected to One World Theatre, so that parent and child could see, talk and interact with each other as if they were in the same room. After the performance, each child and their family was given the opportunity to talk privately with their loved one, keeping the bond of family alive across the miles.
