Dear Friend, This will be my fifth season as music director with this wonderful Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. The past four seasons have gone by so quickly and, as we begin this new season, I am eagerly looking forward to yet another marvelous year with you, my PSO family, and this remarkable, vibrant city I love. I feel a tremendous sense of adventure with these fantastic musicians. They are fearless and dedicated individuals and, I think, we are achieving breathtaking performances together. So I felt great joy when I was asked, and agreed, to extend my term as music director of the PSO through 2020. The past season brought much happiness and excitement. We staged a unique production of Handel’s Messiah, celebrated the music, art and culture of Paris in the early 20th century, and played at Rodef Shalom Congregation as part of our Music for the Spirit series. I was thrilled that our Exton recording of Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, featuring soprano Sunhae Im, won the prestigious International Classical Music Award (ICMA) for symphonic music. The 2012-2013 season opened with our “Year of the Dragon” gala featuring piano virtuoso Lang Lang. Highlights of the season include Mahler’s 2nd Symphony, Mozart’s Requiem, Strauss’ Orchestral Songs and Ein Heldenlaben, and a celebration of Verdi and Wagner. This season, we will be launching our Music for the Spirit Festival with a special Singing City concert featuring as many as 3,000 singers at the Petersen Events Center. The festival will end with a PSO performance of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, “Ode to Joy.” We will also embark on a 12-concert, eight-city European tour, which will include a four-concert residency at the famed Musikverein in Vienna. We are extremely fortunate to have Mason Bates as our Composer of the Year in 2012-2013. I am looking forward to conducting his fascinating works, including the world premiere of a violin concerto co-commissioned by the PSO. It is my sincerest wish that you enjoy the 2012-2013 BNY Mellon Grand Classics season. It is very important to me that you, our beloved audience, enjoy your experience at Heinz Hall with the brilliant Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA
Franz Strauss, Richard’s father, was one of the outstanding instrumentalists of his day. For over forty years as principal horn, he was a chief adornment of the Munich Court Orchestra, a post he held until the age of 69; he was especially renowned for the power and artistry of his solos in Mozart’s concertos, Beethoven’s symphonies and Wagner’s operas. The eminent pianist and conductor Hans von Bülow dubbed him “the Joachim of the horn” (Brahms wrote his Violin Concerto for Joseph Joachim), and Wagner, whose personality and music Franz detested, grudgingly admitted, “Strauss is an unbearable fellow, but when he plays his horn, one cannot be cross with him.” Franz was also a composer, mainly of horn music, the conductor of an amateur orchestra, and a capable player of guitar and viola. The sound of Franz’s horn playing was a fixture in the Strauss household: it is said that Richard as a baby would coo and smile when he heard the horn, but cry at the sound of a violin. It is hardly surprising, then, that the boy wrote for the horn when his talent began to blossom. Two such early works are a song called Alphorn with horn obbligato and the Introduction, Theme and Variations for horn and piano, both with writing difficult enough to give the young composer’s virtuoso father pause. Late in 1882, while he was a student at Munich University, Richard began a concerto for the horn, and completed it early the next year. (His Second Horn Concerto came 60 years later, in 1942.) Franz played through the work and found it filled with such difficulties that he refused to perform it in public, though he occasionally tackled the piece for family concerts. The public premiere was given in 1885 by conductor Hans von Bülow and the principal horn of his Meiningen Orchestra, Gustav Leinhos, who, Strauss assured his father, was a player of “colossal sureness,” a mandatory virtue for any performer of this challenging Concerto. The composer could not attend, but his uncle Carl Hörburger reported that the performance was presented and received “obviously with great commitment and interest.” The First Horn Concerto was soon taken up by other performers, and remains the earliest of Strauss’ works in the repertory. Father Franz saw that Richard was trained strictly in the classical style of Mozart, Beethoven and Mendelssohn, with Wagner and Liszt treated more like anathema than mere composers. During the time of the First Horn Concerto, Richard shared his father’s reactionary tastes (this changed radically after 1885 — when the young musician left home) and the piece is in Strauss’ most untroubled classical vein. The Concerto opens with a brilliant fanfare-flourish from the soloist that becomes the main theme of the first movement. A more lyrical (though, for the soloist, no less demanding) section serves as a complement to the vigorous opening theme. A spirited orchestral tutti, gradually softening, leads without pause to the Andante, a sad, sweet song in three parts, the central section of which is marked by agitated, repeated-note figures in the accompani-

PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA
The great tradition of the 19th-century German Lied came to its end with the songs of Richard Strauss. Though he wrote songs throughout his long life — his first piece, penned at age six, was a Christmas carol; his last was the magnificent Four Last Songs — he composed most of his Lieder before he turned from the orchestral genres to opera at the beginning of the 20th century. The best of Strauss’ songs are imbued with a soaring lyricism, a textural and harmonic richness, and a sensitivity to the text that place them among the most beautiful and enduring works of their type, the culmination of the most intimate musical genre of the legacy of Schubert, Schumann and Brahms. Strauss composed the Four Songs of his Op. 33, his first with orchestra, between the summer of 1896 and the following January, the time when he completed Also sprach Zarathustra and assumed his new duties as chief conductor of the Munich Opera. Hymnus, a soaring paean to the muse of artistic creativity that closes on a somber note, sets a text by the prolific German poet, playwright and novelist Friedrich Gustav Schilling (1766-1839). The poem first appeared in 1789 in the literary journal Thalia (named for the ancient muse of poetry) that Friedrich Schiller published during the time he was resident playwright at Mannheim; Hymnus has often been mistakenly attributed (even by Strauss) to him. Dass du mein Auge wecktest zu diesem goldenen Lichte, Dass mich dein Äther umfliesst; Dass ich zu deinem Äther Hinauf einen Menschenblick richte, Der ihn edler geniesst; Dass du einen unsterbliches Geist, Der dich, Göttliche, denket und in die schlagend Brust, Gütige, mir des Schmerzes wohlhät’ge Warnung Geschenket und die belohnende Lust;

ment. The finale is a bounding rondo whose theme is a transformation of the principal melody of the opening movement. One of the first evaluations of Strauss’ music was published in 1908 by Ernest Newman, who wrote of the early instrumental works, “The impression one gets is that of a head full to overflowing with music, a temperament that is energetic and forthright rather than warm, a faculty — unusual in so young a composer — of keeping the hearer’s attention almost always engaged, and a general lack not only of young-mannish sentimentality, but of sentiment.... These works are the outcome of a definite personality, not the mere music-making of a man who has nothing of his own to say.”
That you have awakened my eyes to this golden light, and that your ether — the clear air of heaven —is flowing round me; that I direct a human gaze aloft to your ethereal heights, which my gaze then enjoys more nobly; that you have bestowed upon me an immortal spirit that, divine one, thinks of you, and, having instilled into my breast, kindly one, the salutary warning of pain and the reward of pleasure, 17
Dass du des Geistes Gedanken, Des Herzens Gefühle zu tönen Mir ein Saitenspiel gabst, Kränze des Ruhms und das buhlende Glück Deinen stolzeren Söhnen, Mir ein Saitenspiel gabst; Dass dem trunkenen Sinn, von hoher Begeistrung beflügelt, Schöner das Leben sich malt, Schöner in der Dichtung Krystall die Wahrheit sich spiegelt, Heller die dämmernde strahlt: Grosse Göttin, dafür soll, Bis die Parzen mich fodern, Dieses Herzens Gefühl, Zarter Kindlichkeit voll, In dankbarem Strahle dir lodern, Soll aus dem goldenen Spiel Unerschöpflich dein Preis, Erhabne Bidnerin, fliessen, Soll dieser denkende Geist An dein mütterlich Herz In reiner Umarmung sich schliessen, Bis der Tod sie zerreisst!
that to intone the thoughts of the spirit and the feelings of the heart you have given me a lyre. You have given wreaths of fame and luck in wooing to other poets, your prouder sons, but to me you gave a lyre; that to my intoxicated senses, winged as they are by sublime inspiration, life is painted as more beautiful, truth is mirrored more beautifully in the crystal of poetry, twilit truth gleams more brightly: great goddess, for all that my heart’s emotion, full of tender, child-like feeling, shall — till the Fates claim my life — blaze for you, radiating gratitude; for all that shall your praise, sublime sculptress, flow, inexhaustibly from the golden lyre, shall this thinking spirit press himself to your motherly heart in pure embrace until death tears us apart!
The poems of Richard Dehmel (1863-1920), one of the most distinguished German poets at the turn of the 20th century, form a bridge between the sensuous Impressionism of the preceding generation and the intense spirituality of encroaching Expressionism. His verses matched well the fin-de-siècle temperament of northern European composers: Strauss, Webern, Szymanowski and others made settings of his poems, and Schoenberg was inspired to write an opulent tone poem for string sextet by Dehmel’s Verklärte Nacht (“Transfigured Night”). In the summer of 1899, at exactly the same time Schoenberg was composing Verklärte Nacht, Strauss made an extraordinary setting of Notturno, Dehmel’s chilling vision of a dream-like encounter with Death, whose grieving song is cast upon “the breath of his violin.” Notturno, unique in Strauss’ song output in its length (eighteen minutes) and its unflinching modernity, uses some of the same avant-garde harmonic techniques later exploited in his headline-grabbing operas Salome (1905) and Elektra (1909), but their effect here is even more disturbing. In reviewing a performance by Thomas Hampson in 2003, Joshua Kosman wrote in the San Francisco Chronicle, “Salome is entertainment, but thirty seconds into Notturno and your blood runs cold.”
Hoch hing der Mond; das Schneegefild lag bleich und öde um uns her, wie meine Seele bleich und leer, denn neben mir, so stumm und wild, so stumm und kalt wie meine Not, als wollt’ er weichen nimmermehr, sass starr und wartete der Tod.
The moon hung high; the snowy field lay drear and desolate about us, as drear and empty as my soul, for by my side, as mute and fierce, as mute and cold as my anguish, as if nevermore wishing to move, sat Death, motionless and waiting.
Da kam es her wie einst so mild, so müd’ und sacht
As once before there came so soft, so weary and gentle
from distant night, so laden with grief came thence the breath of his violin, and his silent image stood before me.
Der mich umflochten wie ein Band, dass meine Blüte nicht zerfiel, und dass mein Herz die Sehnsucht fand, die grosse Sehnscuht ohne Ziel: da stand er nun im öden Land und stand so trüb und feierlich und sah nicht auf noch grüsste mich, nur seine Töne liess er irr’n und weinen durch die kühle Flur, und mir entgegen starrte nur aus seiner Stirn, als wär’s ein Auge hohl und fahl, der tiefen Wunde dunkles Mal.
Who entwined me like a ribbon, that my flowering not wither, and that my heart find desire, great, all-embracing desire: he stood there now in the desolate land, stood so sad and solemn, and looked not up nor greeted me, only let his music drift and weep through the chill meadow, and all that stared at me from his brow, as if it were an empty, livid eye, the deep wound’s darksome stain.
Und trüber quoll das trübe Lied und quoll so heiss und wuchs und schwoll, so heiss und voll, wie Leben, das nach Liebe glüht, wie Liebe, die nach Leben schreit, nach ungenossner Seligkeit, so wehevoll, so wühlend quoll das strömende Lied und flutete und leise, leise blutete und strömte mit in’s bleiche Schneefeld rot und fahl der tiefen Wunde dunkles Mal.
And the sad song flowed more sadly and flowed so ardent and grew and swelled so ardent and full, like life on fire for love, like love crying out for life, for bliss untasted, so woefully, so achingly the song’s outpouring flowed and overflowed, and gently, gently bled and streamed, red and livid into the pale, snowy field, the deep wound’s darksome stain.
Und müder glitt die müde Hand, und vor mir stand ein bleicher Tag, ein ferner, bleicher Jugendtag, da starr im Sand zerfallen seine Blüte lag, da seine Sehnsucht sich vergass, in ihrer Schwermut Übermass und ihrer Traurigkeiten müd zum Ziele schritt; und laut aufschrie das weinende Lied, das wühlende, und flutete, und seiner Saiten Klage schnitt, und seine Stirne blutete und weinte mit in meine starre Seelennot, als sollt’ ich hören ein Gebot, als müsst ich jubeln, dass ich litt,
And the weary hand moved more wearily, and before me stood a pale day, a far-off, pale day of youth, when his flowering lay motionless, withered in the sand, when his longing forgot itself, and overburdened by its melancholy and tired of its sadness, proceeded to its goal; and the weeping song cried out loud, the aching song, and overflowed, and his strings etched a lament, and his brow bled and wept with me in my paralyzed soul’s affliction, as though I should hear a commandment, as though I had to rejoice in my suffering,

Und bebend hört’ ich mir entgehn, entfliehn sein Lied. Und wie so zart, so zitternd ward der langen Töne fernes Flehn, da fühlt’ ich kalt ein Rausches Wehn und grauenschwer die Luft sich rühren um mich her, und wollte bebend nun ihn sehn, ihn lauschen sehn, der wartend sass bei meiner Not, und wandte mich: da lag es kahl, das bleiche Feld, und fern und fahl entwich ins Dunkel auch der Tod.
And trembling I heard his song slip away from me and flee. And so tender, so tremulous were the long-held notes of distant entreaty; I felt the chill of delirium’s breath and the dread-laden air stir about me, and trembling now desired to see him, see him listen who sat waiting in my affliction, and I turned: it lay deserted, the drear field, and distant and pale Death too vanished into darkness.
Hoch hing der Mond, und mild und müd’ hin schwand es in die leere Nacht, das flehende Lied, und schwand und schied, des toten Freundes flehendes Lied.
The moon hung on high, and softly, wearily, it vanished into the empty night, the imploring song, and vanished and dissolved, the dead friend’s imploring song.
Pilgers Morgenlied (“Pilgrim’s Morning Song”) is a passionate setting of the poem that Johann Wolfgang von Goethe (1749-1832) dedicated to Luise Henriette von Ziegler, a lady-in-waiting at court and one of the circle of “sensitive souls,” as he called them, with whom he associated in Darmstadt in 1772, a time when the 23-year-old writer, having fled Frankfurt after a failed attempt to practice law, referred to himself as a “pilgrim” and “wanderer.” After he left Darmstadt to try practicing law again in Wetzlar, Goethe sent poems back to Darmstadt addressed to three ladies in his group, including the Pilgers Morgenlied, which was for “Lila,” Luise’s nickname to her friends. Two years later Goethe established himself among the foremost European authors with the publication of The Sorrows of Young Werther. Morgennebel, Lila, Hüllen deinen Turm ein. Soll ich ihn zum Letztenmal nicht sehn! Doch mir schweben Tausend Bilder Seliger Erinn’rung Heilig warm um’s Herz. Wie er da stand, Zeuge meiner Wonne, Als zum erstenmal Du dem Freundling Ängstlich liebevoll begegnetest, Und mit einemmal 20
Morning mist, Lila, Wraps round your tower. Shall I not see it One last time! But a thousand images Float blissfully Through the memory, Warming the heart. Like when this Timid person stood there, A sort of witness to my own happiness, You, right from The first meeting, Igniting
Eternal flames In the soul. Hiss, Northwinds, Like a thousand-tongued snake, Around my head! I’ll not bow to you! May you not bow either, Immature twigs, Cut off from the presence Of the nurturing sun.

Friedrich Rückert (1788-1866) was Professor of Oriental Literature at Erlangen and Privy Counselor for King Friedrich Wilhelm IV at Berlin from 1841 to 1848. Rückert was known as both a productive scholar, with many translations of texts from Persian, Arabic, Hebrew, Armenian, Ethiopian, Coptic and Sanskrit, as well as a prolific writer of poems, which inspired musical settings from such 19th-century composers as Schubert, Schumann, Marschner and Litolff. Strauss’ dramatic realization of Rückert’s Nächtlicher Gang (“Nightly March”) evokes sinister, ghostly apparitions as a lover quests for his beloved beyond the grave. Die Fahnen flattern The flags flap Im Mitternachtssturm, In the midnight storm, Die Schiefern knattern The slates rattle Am Kirchenturm: On the church tower; Ein Windzug zischt, A draft of air hisses, Die Latern’ verlischt.

Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Opus 95, “From the New World” (1893) When Antonín Dvořák, aged 51, arrived in New York on September 27, 1892 to direct the new National Conservatory of Music, both he and the institution’s founder, Mrs. Jeanette Thurber, expected that he would help to foster an American school of composition. He was clear and specific in his assessment: “I am convinced that the future music of this country must be founded on what are called Negro melodies. They can be the foundation of a serious and original school of composition to be developed in the United States.... There is nothing in the whole range of composition that cannot find a thematic source here.” Dvořák’s knowledge of this music came from Henry Thacker Burleigh, born in Erie, Pennsylvania in 1866, an African-American song writer and student of his who sang the traditional melodies to the enthralled composer. Burleigh later 22

recalled, “There is no doubt that Dr. Dvořák was very deeply impressed by the Negro spirituals from the old plantation. He just saturated himself in the spirit of those old tunes, and then invented his own themes.” The “New World” Symphony was not only Dvořák’s way of pointing toward a truly American musical idiom but also a reflection of his feelings about his own country. “I should never have written the Symphony as I have,” he said, “if I hadn’t seen America,” but he added in a later letter that it was “genuine Bohemian music.” There is actually a reconciliation between these two seemingly contradictory statements, since the characteristics that Dvořák found in Burleigh’s indigenous American music — pentatonic (five-note) scales, modal minor keys with a lowered seventh degree, rhythmic syncopations, frequent returns to the central key note — are common to much folk music throughout the world, including that of his native Bohemia. Because his themes for the “New World” Symphony drew upon these cross-cultural qualities, to Americans, they sound American; to Czechs, they sound Czech. The “New World” Symphony is unified by the use of a motto theme that occurs in all four movements. This bold, striding phrase, with its arching contour, is played by the horns as the main theme of the sonata-form opening movement, having been foreshadowed (also by the horns) in the slow introduction. Two other themes are used in the first movement: a sad, dance-like melody for flute and oboe that exhibits folk characteristics, and a brighter tune, with a striking resemblance to “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot,“ for the solo flute. Many years before coming to America, Dvořák had encountered Longfellow’s epic poem The Song of Hiawatha, which he read in a Czech translation. The great tale remained in his mind, and he considered making an opera of it during his time in New York. That project came to nothing, but Hiawatha did have an influence on the “New World” Symphony: the second movement was inspired by the forest funeral of Minnehaha; the third, by the dance of the Indians at the feast. That the music of these movements has more in common with the old plantation songs than with the chants of native Americans is due to Dvořák’s mistaken belief that AfricanAmerican and Indian music were virtually identical. The second movement is a three-part form (A–B–A), with a haunting English horn melody (later fitted with words by William Arms Fisher to become the folksong-spiritual “Goin’ Home”) heard in the first and last sections. The recurring motto here is pronounced by the trombones just before the return of the main theme in the closing section. The third movement is a tempestuous scherzo with two gentle, intervening trios providing contrast. The motto theme, played by the horns, dominates the coda. The finale employs a sturdy motive introduced by the horns and trumpets after a few introductory measures in the strings. In the Symphony’s closing pages, the motto theme, “Goin’ Home” and the scherzo melody are all gathered up and combined with the principal subject of the finale to produce a marvelous synthesis of the entire work — a look back across the sweeping vista of Dvořák’s musical tribute to America.

PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA
/// MANFRED HONECK Manfred Honeck was born in Austria and studied music at the Academy of Music in Vienna. An accomplished violinist and violist, he spent more than ten years as a member of the Vienna Philharmonic and the Vienna State Opera Orchestra. It is this experience that has heavily influenced his conducting and has helped give it a distinctive stamp. Honeck was appointed the ninth Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in January 2007, and began his tenure at the start of the 2008-2009 season. After a first extension in 2009, his contract was extended for the second time in February 2012, now through the 2019-2020 season. Following their successful European Tour in 2010 and the European Festival Tour 2011 with appearances at the major music festivals, such as BBC Proms, Lucerne, Grafenegg, Rheingau, Schleswig-Holstein or Musikfest Berlin, Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will return to Europe in October-November 2012. This year’s tour will take them to Barcelona, Madrid, Paris, Luxembourg, and Cologne, Frankfurt and Stuttgart in Germany. During a week-long residency at the Musikverein in Vienna, the orchestra will perform four concerts. Honeck’s successful work in Pittsburgh is captured on CD by the Japanese label Exton. So far, Mahler’s Symphonies Nos. 1, 3, 4 and 5, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and Richard Strauss’ Ein Heldenleben have been released to critical acclaim. Their recording of Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 has won a 2012 International Classical Music Award (ICMA). From 2007 to 2011, Honeck was Music Director of the Staatsoper Stuttgart, where he conducted premieres including Berlioz’s Les Troyens, Mozart’s Idomeneo, Verdi’s Aida, Richard Strauss’s Rosenkavalier, Poulencs Dialogues des Carmélites and Wagner’s Lohengrin and Parsifal, as well as numerous symphonic concerts. His operatic guest appearances include Semperoper Dresden, Komische Oper Berlin, Théâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels, Royal Opera of Copenhagen, the White Nights Festival in St. Petersburg and the Salzburg Festival. He commenced his career as conductor of Vienna’s Jeunesse Orchestra, which he cofounded, and as assistant to Claudio Abbado 24
at the Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra in Vienna. Subsequently, he was engaged by the Zurich Opera House, where he was bestowed the prestigious European Conductor’s Award in 1993. In 1996, Honeck began a threeyear stint as one of three main conductors of the MDR Symphony Orchestra Leipzig and in 1997, he served as Music Director at the Norwegian National Opera in Oslo for a year. A highly successful tour of Europe with the Oslo Philharmonic marked the beginning of a close collaboration with this orchestra which consequently appointed him Principal Guest Conductor, a post he held for several years. From 2000 to 2006 he was Music Director of the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra Stockholm and served as Principal Guest Conductor of the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra from 2008 to 2011, a position he will resume from 2013 to 2016. As a guest conductor, Honeck has worked with major orchestras such as the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Staatskapelle Dresden, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Vienna Philharmonic and in the US with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra Washington and Boston Symphony Orchestra. He is also a regular guest at the Verbier Festival. Guest engagements of the season 2012-2013 include concerts at his earlier places of activity in Stockholm and Prague, as well as appearances with other prestigious orchestras including Bamberg Symphony, Gewandhausorchester Leipzig, Accademia di Santa Cecilia Rome, the New York Philharmonic and the Cleveland Orchestra, and his debut with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. In 2010, Honeck was awarded an honorary doctorate from St. Vincent College in Latrobe, Pennsylvania. Apart from his numerous tasks as conductor, he has been Artistic Director of the “International Concerts Wolfegg” in Germany for more than 15 years. Honeck conducted the PSO previously this month.

LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE

Gifts from Legacy of Excellence programs are directed to the endowment to provide for the PSO’s future. The Steinberg Society honors donors who have advised the PSO in writing that they have made a provision for the orchestra through their estate plans. Members of the Sid Kaplan Tribute program have made a planned gift to the endowment of $10,000 or more to commemorate a particular person or event. Endowed Naming Opportunities for guest artists, musicians’ chairs, concert series, educational programs or designated spaces allow donors to specify a name or tribute for ten years, twenty years or in perpetuity.
