The Second Cello Concerto is a product of 1966, one of the busiest times of Dmitri Shostakovich’s life. In addition to his faculty duties at the Leningrad Conservatory and his regular schedule of creative work, he also traveled around Russia almost constantly to oversee performances of his works and to attend to various matters for the Composers’ Union, to whose board he had been appointed as First Secretary in 1960. He greeted the New Year with his family at his dacha near Leningrad, then journeyed to Kiev, Moscow, Novosibirsk, Moscow again and finally back to Leningrad, where his students were waiting for him, before the first month of 1966 had passed. In February, he wrote the Eleventh Quartet and took part in a television broadcast. In March, he returned to Moscow to attend the 28th Congress of the Communist Party as a delegate (he had been a member of the Party only since 1962), and then went back to Leningrad to spend some time at the Composers’ Union and at home. He was again in Moscow in mid-April to attend meetings of the Lenin and State Prize Committees before he traveled south to admit himself to a sanatorium near Yalta, where he underwent some treatment for a nagging cough and breathing difficulties. Not unlike Prokofiev (who, forbidden by his doctors to work, stationed visiting friends at his hospital door to warn of approaching nurses), Shostakovich continued to compose during his treatment, and he wrote the Second Cello Concerto for his friend Mstislav Rostropovich during his stay. Though he followed the prescribed regimen meticulously, the cough got worse, as did other ailments plaguing him at the time. He left the sanatorium in mid-May, stopping in Moscow and Volgograd before returning to Leningrad. Though his medical problems persisted, he refused to lighten his hectic schedule, and on May 28th, following a concert of his works by the Leningrad Philharmonic, he was admitted to hospital. A heart attack was diagnosed. Though he lived for another nine years and stubbornly continued composing and attending to his many commitments, his health never returned. The Second Cello Concerto was the last work he completed before that crisis in his life. In addition to its purely musical value, Shostakovich’s Second Cello Concerto deserves a significant footnote in Russia’s modern artistic history. The piece was written for Rostropovich, about whom the composer said in his purported memoirs, Testimony, “In general, Rostropovich is a real Russian; he knows everything and he can do everything. Anything at all. I’m not even talking about music here, I mean that Rostropovich can do almost any manual or physical work, and he understands technology.” Shostakovich and Rostropovich were close friends during the composer’s later years, and they lived as neighbors for some time in the Composers’ House in Moscow. In 1974, Rostropovich and his wife, the soprano Galina Vishnevskaya, defected to live and work in the West; four years later they were deprived of their Russian citizenship and became “nonpersons” in their native land. In 1979, Dmitri and Ludmilla Sollertinsky


PROGRAM NOTES \ 2012-2013 SEASON

published their Pages from the Life of Dmitri Shostakovich, which was essentially the Soviet rebuttal to the scathing criticism leveled in Testimony, issued several months earlier. Though Rostropovich was one of Shostakovich’s best friends and most important artistic motivators, his name is not even mentioned in the Sollertinskys’ Pages and the fine Second Cello Concerto is dismissed in the book with a mere, passing half-sentence. The Concerto is in three movements: a spacious opening Largo followed by a compact scherzo and a summarizing finale. The work opens with a plaintive soliloquy for cello that both sets the somber tone for the movement and introduces the motivic germ cells that figure so prominently in the unfolding of the music. The low strings, in murmuring dialogue with the cello, enter with another important thematic fragment before other orchestral instruments are allowed to share the soloist’s sorrowful emotion. The movement grows more animated in its central section, which is built from free elaborations of the earlier motives. (The staccato woodwind chords accompanied by the xylophone, for example, derive from the soloist’s initial gesture at the beginning of the movement.) The bleak, haunting music of the beginning returns to round out the form of this pensive and deeply touching movement. At the center of the Concerto stands a cheeky scherzo in the sardonic and bitingly witty vein that marks many of Shostakovich’s quick movements. There are no strong formal demarcations within the scherzo, though an insouciant little fragment first given by bassoon and contrabassoon (and distantly derived from the cello’s opening motive in the first movement) recurs throughout as a sort of musical milepost. Joining the scherzo directly to the finale are a satirically cockeyed fanfare for the horns and a brief cadenza for the soloist (accompanied by tambourine — Shostakovich was one of the 20th century’s most masterful orchestrators of percussion). The finale is in two large sections. The first part uses three melodic ideas that are intertwined and elaborated as the movement progresses: a wistful, limpid motive in rocking 6/8 meter initiated by the harp; a martial theme in leaping intervals; and a hymnal cadential phrase in slower tempo. The finale’s second portion serves as an epilogue to the entire Concerto by recalling earlier themes. The staccato woodwind chords from the opening movement return first; next, the horns noisily hurl forth a melody from the scherzo; then the finale themes are again heard; and, finally, the ghost of the cello’s soliloquy from the beginning of the work appears. The closing page of the Concerto is an enthralling paragraph for ticking percussion, a sort of suspension of time seeming to indicate that this music goes on forever, somewhere, unheard, in infinite space.

PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA

12

When Dvořák attended the premiere of the Third Symphony of his friend and mentor Johannes Brahms on December 2, 1883, he was already familiar with the work from a preview Brahms had given him at the piano shortly before. The effect on Dvořák of Brahms’ magnificent creation, with its inexorable formal logic and its powerful shifting moods, was profound. Dvořák considered it, quite simply, the greatest symphony of the time, and it served as one of the two emotional seeds from which his D minor Symphony grew. The other, which followed less than two weeks after the premiere of the Third Symphony, was the death of his mother. Brahms not only encouraged Dvořák in his work, but also convinced his publisher, Simrock, to take on the music of the once little-known Czech composer. Dvořák always respected and was grateful to his benefactor, and when Brahms’ Third Symphony appeared he looked upon it as a challenge presented to him to put forth a surpassing effort in his next work in the form. With Brahms’ Symphony as the inspiration, and his grief at his mother’s passing as the soul, the idea of a new symphony grew within him. He poured some of his sadness into the Piano Trio in F minor, Op. 65, composed early in 1884, but the spark that ignited the actual composition of the Seventh Symphony was not struck until the following summer. Dvořák had been garnering an international success with his music during the preceding years, and his popularity was especially strong in England. As one of the stops on his busy conducting tours through northern Europe, he visited Britain for the first time in the spring of 1884, and on June 13th he was elected an honorary member of the Philharmonic Society and simultaneously requested to provide a new symphony for that organization. It gave him the reason to put the gestating Symphony to paper. Following another English foray in the fall that was even more successful than the earlier one, he set to work on the Symphony in December. With thoughts of his mother still fresh in his mind and with the example of Brahms always before him (“It must be something respectable for I don’t want to let Brahms down,” he wrote to Simrock), Dvořák determined to compose a work that would solidify his international reputation and be worthy of those who inspired it. In his study of the composer’s work, Otakar Šourek wrote, “Dvořák worked at the D minor Symphony with passionate concentration and in the conscious endeavor to create a work of noble proportions and content, which should surpass not only what he had so far produced in the field of symphonic composition, but which was also designed to occupy an important place in world music.” On December 22nd, Dvořák wrote to his friend Antonín Rus, “I am now busy with the new Symphony (for London) and wherever I go I have no thought for anything but my work, which must be such as

to move the world — well, God grant that it may be so!” He was so pleased with progress on the piece, even during the busy holiday season, that on New Year’s Eve he told another friend, Alois Göbl, “I am again as happy and contented in my work as I have always been up to now and, God grant, I always shall be.” The orchestration was undertaken during the winter and the score finished in March, only a month before its premiere in London. The Symphony begins with an ominous rumble deep in the basses reminiscent of both the introductory measures of Bruckner’s symphonies and the beginning of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, another work in D minor and coincidentally also commissioned by the London Philharmonic Society. The haunting main theme is introduced by the violas and cellos, then echoed by the clarinets. Almost immediately, the possibilities for development built into the theme are explored, and the music rapidly grows in intensity until a climax is achieved when the main theme bursts forth in dark splendor from the full orchestra. The tension subsides to allow the flute and clarinet to present the lyrical second theme. The development, woven from the thematic components of the exposition, is compact and concentrated. The recapitulation is swept in on an enormous wave of sound that is capped by the re-entry of the timpani. The main theme is abandoned quickly, and the repeat of the flowing second theme is entrusted to two clarinets in a rich setting. The main theme returns, at times with considerable vehemence, to form the coda to this magnificent movement. The second movement opens with a chorale of an almost otherworldly serenity that had been little portrayed in music since the late works of Beethoven. A complementary thematic idea with wide leaps of pathetic beauty is heard from the strings. The unusual form of the movement, part variations, part sonata, is perhaps best heard as the struggle between the beatific grace of the opening and the various states of musical and emotional tension that militate against it. It is likely that Dvořák intended this expressive music as the heart of the Symphony, as a cathartic portrayal of the feelings that had troubled him since the death of his mother. The Scherzo is the greatest dance movement among Dvořák’s symphonies. It is at once graceful and compelling, airy and forceful. Its bounding syncopations give it an irresistible vivacity set in a glowing, burnished orchestral sonority. Though the trio is more lyrical, it has an incessant rhythmic background in the strings that lends it an unsettled quality. The finale, which continues the brooding mood of the preceding movements, is large in scale and assured in expression. Unlike many minor-mode symphonies of the 19th century, this one does not end in an apotheosis of optimism, but, wrote Otakar Šourek, “rises to a glorious climax of manly, honorable and triumphant resolve.” It is a moving climax to one of Dvořák’s greatest creations.

//// GIANANDREA NOSEDA Gianandrea Noseda is among the most sought-after conductors of our time. Since becoming Music Director of the Teatro Regio Torino in 2007, he has propelled it into the ranks of leading opera houses. Noseda regularly conducts many of the leading international orchestras and is also Chief Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic, Victor De Sabata Guest Conductor of the Pittsburgh Symphony and Laureate Conductor of the BBC Philharmonic. He served as the first foreign principal guest conductor of the Mariinsky Theatre from 1997-2007. The 2011-2012 season was a seminal one for Noseda and included celebrated performances of Britten’s War Requiem with the London Symphony Orchestra and Chorus in London and New York. The New York Times selected the performance at Lincoln Center’s White Light Festival as one of the top ten performances of 2011, while Alex Ross of The New Yorker wrote, “Noseda marshalled the finest War Requiem I have heard.” LSO Live subsequently released a recording in 2012 to mark the 50th anniversary of the War Requiem’s premiere. In June 2012, Noseda made his highly anticipated debut at the Teatro alla Scala with a new production of Luisa Miller, recognized as a triumph by the critics and public alike. He continued his passionate work with young artists by leading a multi-city tour of the European Union Youth Orchestra in August 2012 with performances at the Stresa Festival in Italy, of which he is artistic director, and the Edinburgh International Festival, which marked his debut there. In addition to conducting numerous productions in Torino each season, Noseda’s work with the Orchestra and Chorus of the Teatro Regio Torino includes major recording projects and international tours and residencies he instituted in Asia (Japan and China) and Europe, including an annual concert performance of an opera at Théâtre des Champs Elysées in Paris. In May 2013, he will bring his forces to Vienna for the first time with the Verdi Requiem at the Wiener Konzerthaus. Two of the new productions 14

he led at the Teatro Regio Torino have been released on DVD: Mussorgsky’s Boris Godunov, directed by Andrei Konchalovsky (Opus Arte DVD) and Massenet’s Thaïs, directed by Stefano Poda (Arthaus DVD), which was recently recognized as one of the top 20 opera productions of the last 20 years by BBC Music Magazine. He also conducts his orchestra and chorus in two highly anticipated solo aria recording projects for Deutsche Grammophon celebrating Verdi’s 200th birthday, featuring Anna Netrebko and Rolando Villazon. The 2012-2013 season got off to a busy start with Noseda’s debut at Vienna State Opera in September, the opening of the season at Teatro Regio Torino with The Flying Dutchman and the debut at the Musikverein with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra. This season will include return guest conducting appearances with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and debuts with the Cleveland Orchestra and Los Angeles Philharmonic. His relationship with the LSO will continue in summer 2013 when he makes his debut at the Aix-en-Provence Festival in a new production of Rigoletto by Robert Carsen. Noseda’s privileged relationship with the Metropolitan Opera dates back to 2002. He has conducted five Verdi operas and garnered considerable attention most recently with last season’s revival of Macbeth. He will return to the Met with two new productions in the 2013-2014 season. An exclusive Chandos artist since 2002, Noseda’s discography includes more than 35 recordings featuring, among others, Prokofiev, Karlowitz, Dvořák, Smetana, Shostakovich, Liszt’s Symphonic works, Rachmaninoff (the operas and the symphonies), Mahler and Bartok. He has recently started to champion both known and lesser-known Italian composers of the 20th century. Noseda’s intense collaboration with the BBC Philharmonic continues with studio recordings, subscription concerts at the


BIOGRAPHY \ 2012-2013 SEASON

Bridgewater Hall and annual appearances at the Proms in London. His live performances of Beethoven’s complete symphonies from Manchester with the BBC Philharmonic in 2005 are considered a historic classical music streaming event with over 1.4 million downloads as part of BBC Radio 3’s The Beethoven Experience. Born in Milan, Noseda is one of the highest profile Italian cultural figures and has taken it upon himself to speak publicly about

the need to continue investing in culture during difficult economic conditions. He is regularly interviewed on this topic and, in March 2012, was interviewed about it on CNBC’s Closing Bell with Maria Bartiromo at the New York Stock Exchange. He holds the Honor of “Cavaliere Ufficiale al Merito della Repubblica Italiana.” Gianandrea Noseda last conducted the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in April 2012. 15


//// ENRICO DINDO “His atmospheric treatment of the opening of the second concerto by Shostakovich is impressive.” This sentence by Andrew Clark in The Financial Times saluted the appearance of Enrico Dindo’s recording of the cello concerti by Dmitri Shostakovich on the Chandos label in 2011, accompanied by the Danish National Symphony Orchestra conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. The first Italian to be awarded the First Prize at the International Cello Competition, “Mstislav Rostropovich,” Paris in 1997, Dindo has received definitive international recognition for his exceptional and early talent. The great Russian maestro said about him: “He is a cellist of exceptional qualities, who has the gift of an incredible sound, which flows as a splendid Italian voice.” Born in Turin into a family of musicians, Dindo began studying cello at the age of six at the Conservatorio “G. Verdi” in his native town. After graduating from there, he attended post-graduate courses with Egidio Roveda and Antonio Janigro at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. In 1987, Dindo was invited by Riccardo Muti as first cello soloist to the Orchestra of the Teatro alla Scala in Milan, where he held the post for eleven years, until 1998. Dindo has performed in France, Switzerland, Israel, Denmark, Germany, Russia, Lithuania, Spain, the USA and Italy, alongside great orchestras such as Orchestre National de France, Filarmonica della Scala, Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale della Rai, Kirov Chamber Orchestra, Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia, NHK Symphony Orchestra, St. Petersburg Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Goethemburg Symphoniker, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, BBC Philharmonic and Kirov Orchestra of St. Petersburg. He has cooperated with many great and famous conductors, such as Riccardo Chailly, Aldo Ceccato, Myun Wun Chung, Valery Gergiev, Paavo Järvi, Peter Maag, Junjo Mena, Riccardo Muti, Gunter Neuhold, Gianandrea Noseda and Mstislav Rostropovich. 16

He has toured with the Franz Liszt Chamber Orchestra in Budapest and in Italy with the two Cello Concertos of Haydn. The cycle of Sonatas and Variations by Beethoven with the pianist Pietro De Maria and the Bach Cello Suites have been recorded and released for Decca in Italy. In the summer 2010, Dindo performed the Schumann Celloconcerto for the anniversary of the composer with the Gewandhaus Orchestra conducted by Riccardo Chailly in the frame of their European tour, including concerts in Vienna (Musikverein) and Luzern (Luzerner Festspiele). He has been invited back for a similar project in the summer of 2013. Dindo has also founded the Chamber Ensemble “I Solisti di Pavia,” acting as Principal Conductor and Artistic Director. With them, he has toured extensively in Russia (Moscow and St. Petersburg), Lithuania (Vilnius), Switzerland, France, Spain and Lebanon, in addition to many concerts in Italy, including concerts at the Parco della Musica, Rome and Teatro alla Scala, Milan. These performances mark Enrico Dindo’s debut with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.

La Notte di Plàton (“Plato’s Night”) (1923) ABOUT THE COMPOSER

Born 10 April 1892 in Trieste; died 11 December 1967 in Santa Margherita Ligure PREMIERE OF WORK

Rome, 25 November 1923; Augusteo; Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia;

The Italian conductor Victor de Sabata was extremely important to the artistic excellence of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) during a period when it had no Music Director (1948-1952). During those seasons, de Sabata conducted the PSO four to six weeks annually. His appearances were the high point of each year, breaking box office records and inspiring the orchestra to electrifying performances. Sadly, a heart attack forced him to stop conducting in 1953, but he had bridged the gap between Music Directors Fritz Reiner and William Steinberg.

PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA

Victor de Sabata was a gifted composer, a virtuoso violinist and pianist and competent performer on most of the orchestral instruments, and a conductor regarded by many as second only to Toscanini among Italian maestros and by some as more than his equal. De Sabata was born in April 1892 in Trieste, where his father was a choir director and voice teacher and his mother a talented amateur musician. Victor, immersed in music as a youngster, started playing piano at four and composed a gavotte for that instrument two years later and an orchestral work when he was twelve. The family moved to Milan in 1900 and the following year he was admitted to the city’s conservatory, where he excelled at piano, violin, composition and conducting, and also took lessons on cello, clarinet, oboe and bassoon. He won the school’s gold medal upon his graduation in 1911 for a suite for orchestra and later that year played in an ensemble led by Arturo Toscanini, who encouraged him to become a conductor. While he was honing his baton skills, de Sabata continued to compose, writing a successful opera on a commission from La Scala (Il Macigno — “The Rock”) and the symphonic poem Juventus (“Youth”) that Strauss, Toscanini and other leading conductors performed regularly. He began his conducting career in 1918 with orchestral concerts in Italy and an appointment as conductor of the Monte Carlo Opera, where he premiered Ravel’s L’Enfant et les Sortilèges (“The Child and the Sorceries”) and led the first performances in France of Puccini’s La Rondine (“The Swallow”). (Ravel, amazed that de Sabata had committed the opera’s score to memory overnight, said that he was a conductor “the like of which I have never before encountered.”) In 1929, de Sabata made his American debut with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and joined the conducting staff of La Scala; he was appointed principal conductor of La Scala the following year, succeeding Toscanini. He appeared with great success in Italy and Central Europe during the 1930s, becoming only the second non-Germanic conductor at Bayreuth (Toscanini was the first, in 1930) and making acclaimed recordings of Brahms, Wagner and Strauss with the Berlin Philharmonic. After World War II, he appeared in opera and concert in Italy, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden and Britain (he was the first conductor from

an Axis country to return to London, on April 21, 1946) and as a frequent guest conductor with the orchestras of New York, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago, Boston, Philadelphia, San Francisco and other American music centers. A severe heart attack in 1953 effectively ended his career, though he continued his affiliation with La Scala in an administrative capacity until 1957; his final conducting appearances were at the memorial services for Toscanini in February of that year at La Scala (where he led the funeral march from Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony) and the Milan Cathedral (Verdi’s Requiem). De Sabata did a little teaching during his last decade (his student Aldo Ceccato married his daughter) but he lived largely in seclusion until his death, in 1967, in the seaside town of Santa Margherita Ligure, not far from Portofino. Though de Sabata’s legacy as a conductor overshadows that as a composer, he wrote three symphonic poems, two operas, a ballet, incidental music and piano pieces in a Late Romantic style familiar from the works of Strauss and Respighi. La Notte de Plàton (“Plato’s Night”) was composed in 1923 and premiered in Rome by the Orchestra of the Accademia di Santa Cecilia under the composer’s direction on November 25, 1923 at the Augusteo, the theater built on the ruins of Mausoleum of Augustus and torn down by Mussolini; Lorin Maazel introduced the work to the United States with the Philadelphia Orchestra in 1968. Plato (ca. 424 BCE–ca. 347 BCE), philosopher, mathematician, student of Socrates, teacher of Aristotle and founder of the Academy in Athens, the first institution of higher learning in the Western world, was one of the seminal figures in Western culture. The distinguished English philosopher and mathematician Alfred North Whitehead wrote of him, “The safest general characterization of the European philosophical tradition is that it consists of a series of footnotes to Plato.” The incident evoked in de Sabata’s La Notte di Plàton may have occurred around 407 BCE, when Plato, the son of a wealthy and politically active Athens family, decided to abandon writing poetry and indulging in the hedonistic life to follow Socrates. De Sabata provided further details in the preface to the score: “This symphonic poem seeks to represent in music the eternal conflict of the two contesting forces in man: on the one hand, that of the flesh and the reckless pursuit of pleasure; on the other, that of the spirit, with its call for detachment and self-denial. The composer has tried to reproduce the passions that this struggle expresses, framing them in the beautiful vision of almost palpable clarity evoked by the following passage in the book Les Grands Initiés (‘The Great Initiates’) by [French philosopher, poet, novelist and music critic] Édouard Schuré [1841-1929]: “Plato spent a fortune on this feast. The tables were prepared in the garden. Youths holding torches illuminated the scene. The three most beautiful courtesans of Athens were present. “The feast continued all night. Smiling, Plato stood up and said: ‘This feast is the last one I offer you. From today I renounce life’s pleasures to dedicate myself to wisdom and to follow the teachings of Socrates.’ A cry of surprise and protest arose. The courtesans stood up and left in their litters, glancing spitefully at the master of the house. “The cream of Athenian society and the sophists left with ironic jibes —‘Farewell, Plato! Be happy! You will return to us! Goodbye! Goodbye!’ “Two pensive youths stayed behind, close to him. Plato led these faithful friends by the hand into the inner courtyard of the house, leaving behind an amphora of wine half empty, and cups still full. Heaped on a small altar was a pyramid of papyrus rolls: all of Plato’s poetry. Taking a torch and laughing, Plato set them alight. When the flames had finally died down, the friends, with tears in their eyes, silently took leave of their future teacher. But Plato, left alone, did not weep. “A peace, a wondrous serenity filled his soul. His thoughts were of Socrates whom he was about to see. The approaching dawn touched the balconies of the house, the colonnades, the pediments of the temples and suddenly the first rays of

23


the sun made the golden helmet of Artemis shine on the slope of the Acropolis.’” De Sabata’s opulently scored tone poem opens with an evening breeze of sound as preface to a theme representing Plato in contemplation, a long, gently unfurling melody introduced by oboe, muted trumpet and violas. The evening breeze returns to lead to a dramatic passage that depicts scholars in disputation before an exotic woodwind strain sets the scene for the orgiastic revels. After the frenzy is spent, a noble, rising theme suggests Plato’s determination to follow the life of the mind despite angry protests from his departing guests. A luminous epilogue closes the work with an evocation of dawn and a sense of majestic calm.

Maurice Ravel made a triumphant tour of America as pianist and conductor in 1928. Plans were begun almost immediately for a second foray into the New World, and he started work on a piano concerto in 1929 that was to be the centerpiece of the venture. While he was at work on what became the Concerto in G, however, he was asked to compose another concerto by the pianist Paul Wittgenstein, brother of the eminent Austrian philosopher, Ludwig, who was determined to continue his concert career despite the loss of his right arm during the First World War. Wittgenstein had transcribed several piano works for his own performance for left hand alone and commissioned new pieces from some of the era’s most distinguished composers — Strauss, Prokofiev, Franz Schmidt, Britten, Hindemith, Korngold. Ravel was intrigued by Wittgenstein’s sincerity and by the challenge of the project, and he accepted the proposal. He laid aside the concerto in progress, and took up the new score with enthusiasm. Of the Left Hand Concerto, Ravel wrote, “It contains many jazz effects, and the writing is not as light [as the Concerto in G]. In a work of this kind, it is essential to give the impression of a texture no thinner than that of a part written for both hands. For the same reason, I have resorted to a style that is much nearer to that of the more solemn kind of traditional concerto. A special feature is that, after a first section in this traditional style, a sudden change occurs and the jazz music begins. Only later does it become manifest that the jazz music is built on the same theme as the opening part.” The Left Hand Concerto is in three sections. The opening rises from a barely audible rumbling of the lowest instruments during which two thematic cells are presented: the first, with its snapping rhythmic figures, is intoned by the contrabassoon; the other, appearing in the eighth measure, is a smooth melody presented by the horns in octaves. (It is this second motive on which the “jazz music” of the central section is based.) The two themes are interwoven to achieve a crashing climax from the full orchestra after which the soloist emerges with a cadenza based on the snapping-rhythm theme. Most of the remainder of the opening section

PROGRAM NOTES \ 2012-2013 SEASON

is given over to further orchestral elaborations of this melody, with florid figurations from the soloist. The central, “jazzy” section is driving in rhythm and brilliantly brittle in sonority. A scherzo-like strain and a cheeky tune piped by the high woodwinds are followed by the recall of the smooth melody of the beginning, here entrusted to the solo bassoon and then the solo trombone. The jaunty scherzo resumes, but is brought to a sudden halt by a silence and the return of the snapping opening theme in a bold setting for full orchestra. A sweeping cadenza and closing flourishes from the orchestra bring this masterwork of Ravel’s maturity to a powerful conclusion.

47 minutes PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA

In the autumn of 1885, Hans von Bülow, music director of the Meiningen Orchestra, appointed the 21-year-old Richard Strauss as his conducting assistant. Within months, Strauss was asked to become von Bülow’s successor, but he declined the offer in favor of a post as third conductor at the Court Opera in Munich, his hometown. Strauss left his post at Meiningen in April 1886 and did not have to report for his new duties in Munich until August, so, encouraged by Brahms, who shared with the young musician his fond memories of his visits to Italy, he undertook a trip across the Alps during April and May. The journey, financed by his father and by his uncle Georg Pschorr, a wealthy Munich brewer (Pschorr Beer is still a Bavarian favorite and a mainstay of the famous Oktoberfest), took Richard to Verona, Bologna, Rome, Naples, Florence and many smaller cities. Despite losing his leather suitcase in Naples, his laundry in Rome and his Baedeker in a theater, being overcharged by the local merchants, and having to skip a stop in Venice because of an outbreak there of cholera, he thoroughly enjoyed the junket. When he returned to Munich in late May, Strauss was bubbling with ideas for a new work, and he immediately set about creating the set of four tone pictures that became the “Symphonic Fantasy” titled Aus Italien (“From Italy”).

Strauss provided the following comments about Aus Italien: “1. Auf der Campagna (‘In the Country’). This prelude reproduces the mood experienced by the composer at the sight of the broad extent of the Roman Campagna bathed in sunlight as seen from the Villa d’Este at Tivoli. “2. In Roms Ruinen (‘Amid the Ruins of Rome’). Fantastic images of vanished glory, feelings of melancholy and grief amid the brilliant sunshine of the present. The formal structure of the movement is that of a great symphonic [sonata-form] first movement. 25


“3. Am Strande von Sorrent (‘On the Shore at Sorrento’). This movement represents in tone painting the tender music of nature, which the inner ear hears in the rustling of the wind in the leaves, in bird song and in all the delicate voices of nature, and in the distant murmur of the sea, whence a solitary song reaches the beach. Contrasting with that distant song are the sensations experienced by the human listener. The interplay in the separation and partial union of these contrasts constitutes the spiritual content of this mood-picture. “4. Neapolitanisches Volksleben (‘Neapolitan Folk Life’). The principal theme is a well-known Neapolitan folk song. [Strauss was incorrect. This melody is actually the familiar Funiculi-Funicula by the Italian composer Luigi Denza, but it was so ubiquitous in Naples that he assumed it to be a traditional tune.] In addition, a tarantella the composer heard in Sorrento is used in the coda. After a few noisy introductory bars, the statement of the principal theme by the violas and cellos launches this crazy orchestral fantasy, which attempts to depict the colorful bustle of Naples in a hilarious jumble of themes; the tarantella, at first heard only in the distance, gradually asserts itself towards the end of the movement, and provides the conclusion for this humoresque. A few reminiscences of the first movement may express nostalgia for the peace of the Campagna.”

//// BENJAMIN HOCHMAN Winner of 2011’s prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, pianist Benjamin Hochman has been described by the New York Times as a “gifted, fast-rising artist”. His eloquent and virtuosic performances have earned him critical acclaim and his rare combination of bravura and poetry has excited audiences and critics alike. His engagements have brought him to major cities as orchestral soloist, recitalist and chamber music collaborator with celebrated conductors and colleagues. A passionate interpreter of diverse composers from Bach and Mozart to Berg and Kurtag with a penchant for juxtaposing familiar works with the unfamiliar, Hochman has proven to be adept in expressing the essential heart of each composer. After his successful recital debut in 2006 at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he became a strong musical presence in New York through his concerts with the New York Philharmonic and the American Symphony Orchestra, his Carnegie Hall debut with the Israel Philharmonic and his continuous presence at 92nd Street Y. Mr. Hochman has performed with the Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco, Vancouver, New Jersey and Portland Symphonies, the New York String Orchestra, Prague Philharmonia, Istanbul State Orchestra and the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Canada under eminent conductors such as Kazuyoshi Akiyama, Leon Botstein, Nir Kabaretti, Jaime Laredo, Jun Märkl, Daniel Meyer, Lucas Richman, Bramwell Tovey, Joshua Weilerstein, Kaspar Zehnder and Pinchas Zukerman. He has appeared in his native Israel with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra, Tel Aviv Soloists, the Raanana and Jerusalem Symphonies. Following his debut with the Chicago Symphony in a Mozart Piano Concerto project with Pinchas Zukerman and Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, he returned at the invitation of Emanuel Ax to participate in the 2012 “Keys to the City” Festival. During the festival he performed with the CSO, David Robertson, Trevor Pinnock, Orli Shaham, Kristian Bezuidenhout and Orion Weiss in two Mozart concertos and a recital of twopiano works by Ravel and Rachmaninoff. 28

LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE

In addition to income from the Annual Fund, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is dependent on a robust Endowment to assure its financial stability. 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.

You don’t have to live with painful varicose and spider veins. Should I Have My Veins Evaluated?

Q & A WITH A VEIN SPECIALIST: While finishing charts at the end of my day, I took a few moments to listen to my staff answer questions for a patient on the phone. The questions asked were very important as were the answers that were given. Here are some examples:

What is Phlebology?

Phlebology is the branch of medicine that deals with veins and the disease of veins. Two organizations dedicated to the advancement of this field are The American College of Phlebology and the American Venous Forum.

Why should I see a board- certified phlebologist to evaluate my varicose veins

When it comes to any aspect of your health care, it is important to be proactive in the choice and research of who will become medically responsible for your evaluation and treatment. Though venous disease is not always a visible ailment, it can be a serious health problem leading to more serious issues, so choosing a specialist, or board certified phlebologist for your venous care is a wise decision. Board certification in phlebology identifies a physician who has taken the extra step of becoming specialized in the treatment of venous disease. Not only is the physician often a member of organizations such as the American College of Phlebology (ACP) and the American Venous Forum (AVF) but they have met additional requirements set by the certifying board. After meeting these requirements, he or she must then pass a certifying exam allowing the physician to identify him or herself as board-certified.

Is membership the same as board certification?

This question is particularly important as it defines the specialty of a phlebologist. While a physician may be a member of many different organizations, these organizations only require an interest in the field for joining. Thus membership is unlike board certification where qualification is determined through training and testing. Here’s how the ACP defines its board certification: “The establishment of a Board Certification Exam brings recognition to both the field of phlebology and those providers in the field who have the knowledge, skills and experience to provide quality care to phlebology patients.”

I had a free screening at a health fair and was told that I don't have venous disease, but I still have aching, pain and discoloration at the ankles. What should I do?

While free screenings can be informative, remember that this is just a brief glance into a patient's venous system. A complete venous exam and venous mapping by a board-certified phlebologist is best to determine if a patient has venous disease. Since a proper venous ultrasound is such an integral part of this evaluation, the American College of Phlebology has set requirements for it that include the following: • A venous ultrasound should be ordered by a physician. • A lower extremity ultrasound should study the entire leg, from ankle to groin. Failure to identify and treat all sources of reflux may result in outright treatment failure. • Evaluation of the venous system should be performed with the patient in the upright position. Sitting or lying down are inappropriate for the detection of reflux or the measurement of vein diameters. • A venous ultrasound should be performed by a trained physician or a registered vascular ultrasound technician (RVT) and then interpreted by a physician.

If I have had an evaluation elsewhere, can I still be evaluated in your office?

Of course. A free evaluation is commonly ‘ free’ because patients are often not meeting with a physician, a physician assistant or a nurse practitioner, so this visit cannot be billed to insurance.
