Sergei Prokofiev

Concerto No. 2 in G minor for Piano and Orchestra, Opus 16 (1912-1913)

about the composer

Politics was not the only revolution brewing in Russia in the 1910s. A brash, arrogant student at the St. Petersburg Conservatory was helping to forge a new musical language, with a special assault concentrated on that most hallowed of Romantic instruments, the piano. Sergei Prokofiev took the Conservatory by storm, and by sheer dint of self-will bent faculty, students and outsiders to his desires. Shostakovich, a fellow student but never a friend, recalled, “Prokofiev was a hard man and didn’t seem interested in anything other than himself and his music.” Prokofiev’s boundless self-esteem was undoubtedly one of the catalysts of his great international success. Prokofiev’s iconoclastic views of modern music engendered his piano style, one that broke from the Romantic, lyrical, virtuoso manner of Chopin and Liszt to create a new sound for a new age. Harold Schonberg, in his book on The Great Pianists, wrote of Prokofiev’s pianism, “Young Sergei Prokofiev, the pianist of steel, came raging out of Russia, playing his own music and startling the world with his vigor, his exuberance, his wild rhythm, his disdain for the trappings of romanticism. Gone were romantic color, wide-spaced arpeggios, inner voices, pretty melodies. Prokofiev at the piano attacked the music with a controlled fury, blasting out savage and complicated rhythms, giving or asking no mercy. He went about it almost without pedal, and with a percussive, metallic-sounding tone. Prokofiev decided that the piano was a percussive instrument, and there’s no use trying to disguise the fact that it had hammers. So let’s face up to it and treat the piano as a percussive instrument.... The antiromantic age was under way.”

program notes by Dr. Richard E. Rodda

Prokofiev’s steely piano style was the perfect match for his athletic compositions and his strutting personality. The polite audience of gentry at the summertime premiere of the Second Piano Concerto in 1913 in the fashionable resort of Pavlosk, near St. Petersburg, was “puzzled” by the “mercilessly dissonant combinations,” according to one reviewer. The listeners, disdaining the decorum that they were convinced the young composer had already shattered, greeted the work with a sonorous round of hisses and catcalls. Prokofiev responded with his own characteristic rejoinder: he sat down and thundered through one of his noisiest solo works as an encore! It was not long, however, before his playing and his music gained a wide audience, the fascination and innate musicality of his style sweeping away all initial reservations. The Second Piano Concerto is a work “full of splinters,” as Prokofiev wrote to Igor Stravinsky. Through its handling of rhythm, melody and harmony, it achieves a quality of galvanic dynamism unknown in the music of the preceding century. Of it, Leonid Sabaneyeff wrote, “Vigorous, clearcut rhythms, and naïveté of melody are raised to a cult, the technical methods themselves become a negation of those that had just been in vogue. Savagery and barbarism also become something needed and


desirable as a reaction against the refinement of the preceding epoch.” This Concerto is music of youth and flamboyance and riveting visceral excitement. Of the instrumentation of this work, Prokofiev noted, “It seems to me that in general piano concertos are of two kinds: in the first, the composer succeeds in writing an ensemble for the solo instrument with the orchestra; in the second, the solo is dominant, while the orchestra serves merely as an adjunct. My First Concerto is closer to the first kind, my Second to the second.” The soloist presents the principal theme of the opening movement; a saucy melody in quicker tempo provides contrast. The formal development and recapitulation of the principal theme are combined into an enormous solo cadenza before the orchestra is recalled to provide a coda. The quiet ending section mirrors the opening measures, bringing the movement round full circle. Prokofiev cited the brief but brilliant Scherzo as an example of his “motoric” style, and this movement, is, indeed, a dashing display of perpetual motion. The soloist, in a mighty exhibition of technique and endurance, plays continuously in octaves without a single beat of rest or one long note throughout the entire movement. The slower third movement is in Prokofiev’s best nose-thumbing, wrong-note idiom. The opening and closing sections of this movement make much use of a chugging bass ostinato, with the middle section given over to music of a more gentle character. The finale is a dazzling showcase for the soloist. The lightning-flash opening section returns to finish the movement, but in between are themes of contrasting character in which the soloist frequently charges forth alone, the orchestra sitting silently amid the pianistic fireworks. In his Second Concerto, Prokofiev created a daring, virtuoso tour-de-force of pianism that remains as vibrant and exciting today as when it roused its first hearers from their seats in the waning days of Imperial Russia.

SERGEI RACHMANINOFF

Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Opus 27 (1906-1907)

How much Rachmaninoff’s life changed in those half dozen years! The premiere of his First Symphony in 1897 was a complete failure, a total fiasco. The Russian nationalist composer César Cui ranted, “If there is a conservatory competition in Hell, Rachmaninoff would gain first prize for this Symphony.” Rimsky-Korsakov did not find it “at all agreeable.” Young Rachmaninoff — aged 24 — was plunged into a Stygian despair. For over two years, he entertained the darkest thoughts and composed nothing. Then, in 1900, he began consulting one Dr. Nicholas Dahl, a physician specializing in the treatment of alcoholism through hypnosis. Dahl’s method of auto-suggestion (as well as his enlightened conversation about music) restored the composer’s confidence and desire to work. Within a year, the grand Second Concerto was produced and successfully launched into the world, and Rachmaninoff was on his way to international fame. By 1905, he was one of the most important figures in Russian music. In addition to his prodigious talents as pianist and composer, Rachmaninoff was also a first-rate conductor, and when his stock began rising after the Second Concerto carried his name into important Russian musical circles, he was appointed opera conductor at the Moscow Imperial Grand Theater. As with his music, he found excellent success with his conducting, but he had understandable misgivings about the way it interfered with his creative ambitions. In an interview with Frederick H. Martens, he said, “When I am concertizing I cannot compose. When I feel like writing music I have to concentrate on that — I cannot touch the piano. When I am conducting I can neither compose nor play concerts. Other musicians may be more fortunate in this respect; but I have to concentrate on any one thing I am doing to such a degree that it does not seem to allow me to take up anything else.” There was much music in him that needed to be written, and he knew that a choice about the direction of his future work was imminent.

By the beginning of 1906, he had decided to sweep away the rapidly accumulating obligations of conducting, concertizing and socializing that cluttered his life in Moscow in order to find some quiet place in which to compose. His determination may have been strengthened by the political unrest beginning to rumble under the foundations of the aristocratic Russian political system. The uprising of 1905 was among the first signs of trouble for those of his noble class (his eventual move to the United States was a direct result of the swallowing of his family’s estate and resources by the 1917 Revolution), and he probably thought it a good time to start looking for a quiet haven. A few years before, Rachmaninoff had been overwhelmed by an inspired performance of Die Meistersinger he heard at the Dresden Opera. The memory of that evening and the aura of dignity and repose exuded by the city had remained with him, and Dresden, at that time in his life, seemed like a good place to be. Besides, the city was only two hours by train from Leipzig, where Arthur Nikisch, whom Rachmaninoff considered the


greatest living conductor and who had shown an interest in his music, was music director. The decision to move to Dresden was made early in 1906, and by autumn the composer, his wife and their new-born daughter were installed in a small but smart house complemented by an attractive garden. They arrived quietly, and lived, as much as possible, incognito and in seclusion. When he chanced to meet a Russian acquaintance on the street one day, Rachmaninoff pleaded, “I have escaped from my friends. Please don’t give me away.” The atmosphere in Dresden was so conducive to composition that within a few months of his arrival he was working on the Second Symphony, the First Piano Sonata, the Opus 6 collection of Russian folk songs and the symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead. The Second Symphony was unanimously cheered when it made the rounds of the Russian concert societies in 1908, and it was an important item on Rachmaninoff’s first American tour the following year. With this work, The Isle of the Dead, the Second and Third Concertos, and the ubiquitous Prelude in C-sharp minor, he made a profound impression on the American musical scene. He was twice offered the post of music director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and twice declined. For the two decades before his death in 1943, his cross-country concert tours became an institution. Many of his compositions continue to enjoy a popularity greater in America than anywhere else in the world. The majestic scale of the Symphony is established at the outset by a slow, brooding introduction. The low strings and then the violins give out a fragmentary theme that generates much of the material for the entire work. A smooth transition to a faster tempo signals the arrival of the main theme, an extended and quickened transformation of the basses’ opening motive. The expressive second theme enters in the woodwinds. The development deals with the vigorous main theme to such an extent that the beginning of the formal recapitulation is engulfed by its surging sweep. The lovely second theme reappears as expected, again in the woodwinds. The coda resumes the energetic mood of the development to build to the fine climax that ends the movement. The second movement is the most nimble essay to be found in Rachmaninoff’s orchestral works. After two preparatory measures, the horns hurl forth the main theme, which bears more than a passing resemblance to the Dies Irae (“Day of Wrath”), the ancient chant from the Roman Catholic Mass for the Dead that haunted the composer for many years. The vital nature of the music, however, does not support any morbid interpretation. Eventually, the rhythmic bustle is suppressed and finally silenced to make way for the movement’s central section, whose skipping lines embody some of Rachmaninoff’s best fugal writing. Almost as if by magic, the opening scherzo returns amid a full-throated cry from the brass. Once again, this quiets and the movement ends on a note of considerable mystery. The rapturous third movement, wrote Patrick Piggott, “is as romantic as any music in the orchestral repertory — if by romantic we mean the expression, through lyrical melody and richly chromatic harmony, of a sentiment which can only be described as love.” This is music of heightened passion that resembles nothing so much as an ecstatic operatic love scene. Alternating with the joyous principal melody is an important theme from the first movement, heard prominently in the central portion and the coda of this movement. The finale bursts forth in the whirling dance rhythm of an Italian tarantella. The propulsive urgency subsides to allow another of Rachmaninoff’s wonderful, sweeping melodic inspirations to enter. A development of the tarantella motives follows, into which are embroidered thematic reminiscences from each of the three preceding movements. The several elements of the finale are gathered together in the closing pages to produce the rich and sonorous tapestry appropriate for the life-affirming conclusion of this grand and stirring Symphony.

Leonardo Balada came to music early. The son of a tailor in a family of operaloving tailors in Barcelona, he began piano lessons at the age of nine, and his ambition to become a composer followed soon thereafter. Looking back on his youthful years, Balada recalled, “I felt how nice it was to play the music of somebody else; and then I felt it was not good enough — it’s nicer if somebody plays your music. I must have been fifteen.” After beginning his professional studies at the Barcelona Liceo Conservatory, he came to the United States as a student in 1956, enrolling first at the New York College of Music and, two years later, at the Juilliard School, from which he graduated in 1960. His composition teachers included Vincent Persichetti, Norman Dello Joio, Alexander Tansman and Aaron Copland; he studied conducting with Igor Markevitch. Balada subsequently taught at the Walden School, United Nations International School and Aspen Institute before joining the faculty of Carnegie-Mellon University in Pittsburgh in 1970, where he is University Professor of Composition. Balada’s creative catalog comprises an impressive list of compositions, recordings and performances: six operas (including Zapata, written in 1984 for Sherrill Milnes; Christopher Columbus, for José Carreras and Monserrat Caballé, premiered in 1989 at the Gran Teatre de Liceu in Barcelona in anticipation of the 500th anniversary of the discovery of America; and Faust-bal, premièred at the Teatro Real in Madrid in February 2009); six symphonies and more than a dozen other orchestral pieces; twenty concertos (including one each for bandoneón and castanets); and works for solo voice, organ, chorus, piano, guitar, and chamber ensembles. His music has been performed by leading orchestras in this country and abroad, and recorded on the Deutsche Grammophon, Naxos, Albany, Louisville, Serenus and Grenadilla labels; Lorin Maazel’s performances with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra of the Steel Symphony and Music for Oboe and Orchestra, with soloist Cynthia Koledo DeAlmeida, were released on New World Records. Though he composes in a modern, cosmopolitan idiom, Balada has been much influenced by the traditional view of music as a means of communication — the way in which human emotions may be translated into musical terms. In a feature article by Peter Eliot Stone in The New York Times, the composer stated, “The audience is important to me, but on my own terms. If a piece is good and it reaches the audience, it is twice as good. While I write, I sit mentally in the concert hall. I write the music I like to hear. Bobby Fischer, the chess player, said he was looking for the destruction of his enemy. I compose, sometimes, for the annihilation of my audience. I like to see the audience — not dead — but crying or screaming.” Balada, like many composers today, aims at a synthesis of the music by which he has been influenced during the course of his career. Though he is ready to employ the technical innovations of such 20th-century masters as Varèse, Penderecki and Ligeti, his compositions also show a deep awareness of the continuity of the musical traditions of his native Spain. “In 1975, with Homages to Casals and Sarasate for orchestra, I initiated a new aesthetic period,” he said. “Before that time, I wrote in the so-called ‘avant-garde’ style; that is, textures, aleatoric [chance] devices, orchestral color, etc. Now I incorporate old techniques with these new ones, such as melody, modulation and occasionally traditional


harmonies. A sense of rhythm has always been detectable in my music, whatever the aesthetic tendencies might have been. In short, I blend the old and the new, hopefully in a personal style, which seeks as its ultimate goal the expression of the human soul and drama.” Balada believes that folk song and dance, simple melodic lines and triadic harmonies may be blended with tone clusters and complex textures “to result in something different and fresh.” Balada’s Symphony No. 6, subtitled “Symphony of Sorrows,” was commissioned in 2005 by the Barcelona Symphony and National Orchestra of Catalonia to mark the seventieth anniversary of the start of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939); the Barcelona Symphony, conducted by Salvador MasConde, premiered the work on February 26, 2006. Balada’s publisher, Music Associates of America, has supplied the following information about the “Symphony of Sorrows,” which is dedicated to “the innocent victims of the Spanish Civil War:” “The catastrophic event of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939) can be assessed by the merciless fighting of a divided country and by its consequent human tragedy. Both sides were losers. In the Symphony No. 6, Balada tried to picture musically those two aspects of the war in their psychological perspectives, and in so doing, the music brings desperate tensions as well as desolated intimate moments. The work does not present any programmatic or partisan perspective. The tragedy of the war resounds on both sides like a volcano and like an intimate, dramatic cry caused by one’s own doings. “The single-movement, twenty-minute Symphony evokes an atmosphere that ranges from quiet, desolate suffering to volcanic explosiveness and brutality. As musical materials, aspects of two hymns are used: the Himno de Riego, which was the flag song of the Republican forces, and Cara al Sol, which was identified with the insurrectionist armies of General Franco. The martial rhythms of war pervade the work. In addition, a two-note melodic interval appears obsessively throughout, relentlessly reminding the listener of the fateful hopelessness endured by all who were drawn into the fray. Its stark simplicity stresses enormous pain.”

Very early in his career, Sergei Prokofiev classified his music into four distinct styles: classical or neo-classical; modern; toccata or motoric; and lyrical. It was largely in this last style that he composed his First Violin Concerto. Indeed, the composer himself cited the lovely opening theme as an example of his lyricism. Given that Prokofiev was one of the foremost disciples of modernity at the time, such a romantic notion of melody raised a few eyebrows. It was, however, Prokofiev’s penchant when he was young to compose works in more than one of his four manners simultaneously, and just when a particular faction would hold him up as a model of its specific bias, out popped a Prokofiev piece that just did not do what it was expected to do. He took the greatest delight in this kind of surprise, and one of the continuing themes running through his early works is a dedicated nose-thumbing that missed few musical camps. The gentle mood that pervades the Violin Concerto No. 1 is established immediately at the beginning by the beautiful principal theme. A quickening of the tempo introduces the second theme, a melody filled with flashing ornamentation and insistent rhythmic motion. After a pause, the development begins quietly with the woodwinds chanting the main theme. The second theme is soon added, and the two melodies are explored simultaneously to reach the highest point of intensity in the movement. Only the lyrical main theme returns in the recapitulation, reaching an ethereal close among the sounds of harp, winds and solo violin in the movement’s final pages.

24 minutes

The central scherzo, an example of Prokofiev’s toccata or motoric style, is in the form of a compact rondo. The theme flies upward into the soloist’s glistening high register, a signal that this movement is to be more overtly virtuosic than the preceding one. Two episodes are placed between the returns of the main theme: one is a rhythmically steady motive in walking eighth-notes; the other, an off-beat, repeated-note figure comprising a melody of small intervals. A quick punctuation brings the movement to an abrupt close. The finale returns the introspective mood of the first movement. Two themes are employed here — a descending one of melodic sequences winding through the low instruments and an arched motive for the soloist. The grandfatherly low theme is treated in the development. The recapitulation is ushered in not by the main theme of the finale, but rather by the principal melody of the opening movement in an elaborate trilled version for the soloist. Fragments of the arched theme appear as accompaniment in the woodwinds. The Concerto closes with a coda similar in mood, style and melody to that which concluded the first movement.

program notes by Dr. Richard E. Rodda

(1888) “In the middle of the winter [of 1888], engrossed as I was in my work on Prince Igor and other things, I conceived the idea of writing an orchestral composition on the subject of certain episodes from Scheherazade.” Thus did Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov give the curt explanation of the genesis of his most famous work in his autobiography, My Musical Life. His friend Alexander Borodin had died the year before, leaving his magnum opus, the opera Prince Igor, in a state of unfinished disarray. Rimsky-Korsakov had taken it upon himself to complete the piece, and he may well have been inspired by its exotic setting among the Tartar tribes in 12th-century central Asia to undertake his own embodiment of musical Orientalism. The stories on which he based his work were taken from The Thousand and One Nights, a collection of millennium-old fantasy tales from Egypt, Persia and India which had been gathered together, translated into French, and published in many installments by Antoine Galland beginning in 1704. They were in large part responsible for exciting a fierce passion for turquerie and chinoiserie among the fashionable classes of Europe later in the century, a movement that left its mark on music in the form of numerous tintinnabulous “Turkish marches” by Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn and a horde of lesser now-faded lights, and in Mozart’s rollicking opera The Abduction from the Seraglio. The taste for exoticism was never completely abandoned by musicians (witness Bizet’s The Pearl Fishers or Puccini’s Madama Butterfly or Turandot or even The Girl of the Golden West; Ravel prided himself on his collection of Oriental artifacts), and proved the perfect subject for RimskyKorsakov’s talent as an orchestral colorist. To refresh the listener’s memory of the ancient legends, Rimsky-Korsakov prefaced the score with these words: “The sultan Shakriar, convinced of the falsehood and inconstancy of all women, had sworn an oath to put to death each of his wives after the first night. However, the sultana Scheherazade saved her life by arousing his interest in the tales she told him during 1,001 nights. Driven by curiosity, the sultan postponed her execution from day to day, and at last abandoned his sanguinary design. Scheherazade told many miraculous stories to the sultan. For her tales she borrowed verses from the poets and words from folk-songs combining fairy-tales with adventures.” To each of the four movements of his “symphonic suite” Rimsky gave a title: The Sea and Sinbad’s Ship, The Story of the Kalandar Prince, The Young Prince and the Young Princess and Festival at Baghdad — The Sea — Shipwreck. At first glance, these titles seem definite enough to lead the listener to specific nightly chapters of Scheherazade’s soap opera. On closer examination, however, they prove too vague to be of much help. The Kalandar Prince, for instance, could be any one of three noblemen who dress as members of the Kalandars, a sect of wandering dervishes, and tell three different tales. “I meant these hints,” advised the composer, “to direct but slightly the hearer’s fancy on the path which my own fancy had traveled, and leave more minute and particular conceptions to the will and mood of each listener. All I had desired was that the hearer, if he liked my piece as symphonic music, should carry away the impression that it is beyond doubt an Oriental narrative of some numerous and varied fairy-tale wonders.” program notes 2013-2014 season

Arabella Steinbacher German violinist Arabella Steinbacher has firmly established herself as one of today’s leading violinists on the international concert scene, performing with the world’s major orchestras. The New York Times reports that she plays with, “Balanced lyricism and fire — among her assets are a finely polished technique and a beautifully varied palette of timbres.” After her debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, performing the Sibelius Violin Concerto under Christoph von Dohnányi, The Chicago Tribune reported, “From her magical entry over hushed orchestral strings to the biting swagger she brought to the dancing finale, it was evident that her feeling for this music runs as deep as her technical command. The central Adagio came off especially beautifully, Steinbacher conveying its brooding melancholy with a rich vibrato, impeccable intonation and a remarkable breadth of phrasing.” Steinbacher’s career was launched in 2004 with an extraordinary and unexpected debut in Paris, when she stepped in on short notice for an ailing colleague and performed the Beethoven Violin Concerto with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France under Sir Neville Marriner. Her diverse and deep repertoire includes more than 30 concertos for violin. In addition to all of the major concertos of the Classical and Romantic period, she also performs those of Barber, Bartók, Berg, Glazunov, Khatchaturian, Milhaud, Prokofiev, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Stravinsky, Szymanowski, Hindemith, Hartmann, and Sofia Gubaidulina’s Offertorium. Among Steinbacher’s numerous recording honors are two ECHO-Klassik Awards (considered to be the German equivalent of the Grammy) “Les Chocs du Mois” from Le Monde de la Musique, and two German Record Critics Awards as well as the prestigious Editors Choice Award from Grammophone magazine.

Year of Pittsburgh Composers The Pittsburgh Symphony’s Composer of the Year residency was established in 2001 in an effort to bring audiences and living composers closer together. This one-of-a-kind program immerses the composer-in-residence in the community, with multiple performances, commissions, and opportunities to engage with students and audiences. Past composers have included Richard Danielpour, John Adams, Jennifer Higdon, Joan Tower, Steven Stucky and Mason Bates. This season, the PSO celebrates composers who make Pittsburgh their home. Following the world premiere of David Stock’s Sixth Symphony, the PSO will feature works by Carnegie Mellon University faculty Leonardo Balada and Nancy Galbraith. In February 2014, the PSO will premiere The Elements, a five-part commission by Patrick Burke (Duquesne University), Bomi Jang (University of Pittsburgh), Mathew Rosenblum (University of Pittsburgh), Reza Vali (Carnegie Mellon University) and Amy Williams (University of Pittsburgh), inspired by Pittsburgh’s environmental history and the elements of fire, earth, water, air and metal. Arrive early for Concert Preludes featuring the composers in discussion with PSO staff conductors, and stay tuned for more Year of Pittsburgh Composers events throughout the season.

More concerts featuring pittsburgh composers February 7-9, 2014 Patrick Burke/Bomi Jang/ Mathew Rosenblum/ Reza Vali/Amy Williams: The Elements (World Premiere/PSO Commission) March 21 & 23, 2014 Nancy Galbraith: Euphonic Blues

legacy of excellence 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 10 years, 20 years or in perpetuity.
