Your Colorado Symphony brings a new line-up of programs and star performers.

MASTERWORKS PROGRAM NOTES Stephen Hough: Missa Mirabilis The piece is scored for vocal soloists, SATB chorus, two flutes (both doubling piccolo), pairs of oboes, clarinets, and bassoons, four horns, three trumpets, three trombones, timpani, percussion, and strings. Duration is approximately 20 minutes. This is the first performance by the Colorado Symphony. Many of the greatest composers were also virtuoso performers. Think of Vivaldi and Paganini with their violins, or Chopin, Liszt, and Rachmaninoff (amongst many others) with their pianos. English composer Stephen Hough (b. 1961) also belongs on that list. Hough first built an international reputation as a pianist before his own compositions began to attract favorable attention. As one might expect, some of his works include prominent roles for piano. However, works of other genres have also arisen, sometimes as special requests. The music director of England’s Westminster Cathedral asked Hough for a mass setting for choir and organ. The resulting work premiered in London June 10, 2007 (Corpus Christi Day). A version with orchestral accompaniment followed when Hough decided the work would benefit from the varied timbres of orchestral participation. The title Missa Mirabilis was Hough’s own choice and arose from an experience he had while at work on the piece. As he tells the story, “A lorry moved into the middle [lane] where I was cruising along at around 80 mph… My car screeched out of control – swerving, spinning – then suddenly it was tumbling somersaults across the three lanes. As it turned over four or five times, many thoughts raced through my mind – one of which was that I would never get to hear the music I had written that week.” Whether by luck or divine intervention, Hough survived largely unscathed, as did his briefcase containing the mass-in-progress, which was immediately retrieved from the wrecked vehicle. He finished the final movements over the next several months, often composing in medical waiting rooms. The orchestral version premiered April 6, 2012, with the Indianapolis Symphony, where Hough had appeared as piano soloist while at work on the orchestration. Hough’s mass is rooted in the English cathedral tradition: largely Anglican, somewhat Catholic, and resolutely tonal and melodic. One can readily imagine it resounding through high vaults of Gothic architecture. Often, Hough sets up deft contrasts between higher and lower vocal lines, as if juxtaposing angels’ voices to those of mortals. As one hears the closing Agnus Dei fading away in its final bars, one might keep in mind that it was written after Hough’s accident. Thus, it could be heard as a musical statement of astonished relief. Even those who have never had such an experience personally should be able to sense that emotion in the music’s rapt use of tension and resolution. More than a setting of an ancient sacred text, Hough’s Missa Mirabilis is a musical expression of relief at being spared.

MASTERWORKS PROGRAM NOTES Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43 The piece is scored for solo piano, two flutes and piccolo, two oboes and English horn, two clarinets, two bassoons, four horns, two trumpets, three trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, harp, and strings. Duration is 24 minutes. Last performance by the Colorado Symphony was October 17 & 18, 2009 with Olga Kern as the soloist and Jeffrey Kahane conducting. Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) was Russian born. However, with the onset of Revolution, he departed for the West and never returned to his homeland. Therefore, some of his greatest works – including that on this program – had their premier performances far from his native land. As one of the greatest pianists of his – or any generation, Rachmaninoff frequently focused on this, his favorite instrument. His catalog includes four piano concerti by name; the work that concerns us at the moment would have been the fifth, had the composer not chosen instead a more colorful title. The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, which was premiered by its composer in 1934 in Philadelphia, is a set of twenty-four variations upon a theme by that most gifted of violinists, Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840). Paganini’s theme is stated after a brief introduction to set the stage, and then set in ever new guises. It is not a concerto in the conventional sense, in that it comprises only one movement, rather than the usual three, but observant listeners will note that this single movement still follows the usual tempo pattern, beginning and ending briskly, with a contrasting center section at a slower pace. This middle portion builds toward the Rhapsody’s most famous variation, the lyrical 18th that uses a free inversion of the theme, that is, where the pitch formerly rose, it now falls, and where it fell, it now rises. Although the Paganini caprice serves as the Rhapsody’s foundation, a subsidiary melody is also featured at times, the plainchant Dies Irae from the Requiem Mass. This most familiar of all religious themes, conveying its whiff of fire and brimstone, has been used frequently by composers in various devilish contexts. Its appearance here may be a recollection of the old legend concerning Paganini’s fiendish skill deriving from a pact with the devil, or perhaps it is only due to the composer’s awareness that this theme and the caprice are similar in shape. Whatever his reason, Rachmaninoff’s use of these contrasting melodies brings an additional richness to the now much-beloved Rhapsody.



MASTERWORKS PROGRAM NOTES Vaughan Williams: Dona Nobis Pacem The piece is scored for soprano and baritone solos, SATB chorus, three flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), oboes and clarinets in pairs, two bassoons and contrabassoon, four horns, four trumpets, four trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion, harp, organ, and strings. Duration is 37 minutes. This is the first performance by the Colorado Symphony. Premiering October 2, 1936, on the eve of world war, Dona Nobis Pacem (Grant Us Peace) was composed by Ralph Vaughan Williams (1872-1958), who had served as ambulance driver in the previous war and blends Biblical texts with others inspired by the Crimean War and the American Civil War. It was written for the centenary of England’s Huddlesfield Choral Society, starting with a Walt Whitman setting that Vaughan Williams had written a quarter century earlier and expanding from that point. That initial text, a moonlit memorial to a father and son who both died in battle in the Civil War, would become the fourth of the cantata’s five movements. It was not Vaughan Williams’ only approach to Whitman. His first symphony, A Sea Symphony of 1910, had set passages from Leaves of Grass. Yet Whitman’s masterful Civil War texts touched Vaughan Williams in a different way. Driving an ambulance at the front lines had left him with a perilously clear understanding of the American poet’s vision of war. That first approach to “Dirge for Two Veterans” was initially set aside. When he found himself needing something for Huddlesfield and with the specter of war beginning to raise its head again, Vaughan Williams revived that old piece. He added two more Whitman settings, a portion of an address by English orator John Bright given at Parliament in 1855 at the time of the Crimean War, verses from the Old and New Testaments, and the ancient prayer Agnus Dei, in which the closing lines are a plea for peace and the tension of the earlier movements fades into the distance. The Agnus Dei begins the cantata, the three Whitman texts occupy the three central movements, and the Bright oration (through “that he may spare and pass on”) precedes the various Biblical texts of the final movement. As a whole, the work is at times earth-shaking, at others consoling, sometimes intricately layered, at others blissfully simple. Composed amidst a specific time of global tension, it yet speaks to listeners today, serving as a musical bridge from one time to another. The wish expressed in its music is one that could be desired at any or every time.

MASTERWORKS TEXT VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: Dona Nobis Pacem Agnus Dei qui tollis peccata mundi, dona nobis pacem. (Lamb of God, who takes away the sins of the world, grant us peace.) II Beat! Beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow! Through the windows—through the doors—burst like a ruthless force, Into the solemn church, and scatter the congregation, Into the school where the scholar is studying; Leave not the bridegroom quiet—no happiness must he have now with his bride, Nor the peaceful farmer any peace, ploughing his field, or gathering in his grain, So fierce you whirr and pound you drums—so shrill you bugles blow. Beat! Beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow! Over the traffic of cities—over the rumble of wheels in the streets; Are beds prepared for the sleepers at night in the houses? No sleepers must sleep in those beds, No bargainers’ bargains by day—would they continue? Would the talkers be talking? would the singer attempt to sing? Then rattle quicker, heavier drums—you bugles wilder blow. Beat! Beat! drums!—blow! bugles! blow! Make no parley—stop for no expostulation, Mind not the timid—mind not the weeper or prayer, Mind not the old man beseeching the young man, Let not the child’s voice be heard, nor the mother’s entreaties, Make even the trestles to shake the dead where they lie awaiting the hearses, So strong you thump O terrible drums—so loud you bugles blow. Walt Whitman III. Reconciliation Word over all, beautiful as the sky, Beautiful that war and all its deeds of carnage must in time be utterly lost, That the hands of the sisters Death and Night incessantly, softly, wash again and ever again this soiled world; For my enemy is dead, a man divine as myself is dead, I look where he lies white-faced and still in the coffin—I draw near, Bend down and touch lightly with my lips the white face in the coffin. Walt Whitman


MASTERWORKS TEXT IV. Dirge for Two Veterans The last sunbeam Lightly falls from the finished Sabbath, On the pavement here, and there beyond it is looking Down a new-made double grave. Lo, the moon ascending, Up from the east the silvery round moon, Beautiful over the house-tops, ghastly, phantom moon, Immense and silent moon. I see a sad procession, And I hear the sound of coming full-keyed bugles, All the channels of the city streets they’re flooding As with voices and with tears. I hear the great drums pounding, And the small drums steady whirring, And every blow of the great convulsive drums Strikes me through and through. For the son is brought with the father, In the foremost ranks of the fierce assault they fell, Two veterans, son and father, dropped together, And the double grave awaits them. Now nearer blow the bugles, And the drums strike more convulsive, And the daylight o’er the pavement quite has faded, And the strong dead-march enwraps me. In the eastern sky up-buoying, The sorrowful vast phantom moves illumined, ’Tis some mother’s large transparent face, In heaven brighter growing O strong dead-march you please me! O moon immense with your silvery face you soothe me! O my soldiers twain! O my veterans passing to burial! What I have I also give you. The moon gives you light, And the bugles and the drums give you music, And my heart, O my soldiers, my veterans, My heart gives you love.

Walt Whitman


MASTERWORKS TEXT V The Angel of Death has been abroad throughout the land; you may almost hear the beating of his wings. There is no one as of sprinkle with blood the lintel and the two sideposts of our doors, that he may spare and pass on. John Bright Dona nobis pacem. (Grant us peace.) We looked for peace, but no good came; and for a time of health, and behold trouble! The snorting of his horses was heard from Dan; the whole land trembled at the sound of the neighing of his strong ones; for they are come, and have devoured the land....and those that dwell therein.... The harvest is past, the summer is ended, and we are not saved.... Is there no balm in Gilead? is there no physician there? Why then is not the health of the daughter of my people recovered? Jeremiah 8:15-22 VI O man greatly beloved, fear not, peace be unto thee, be strong, yea be strong. Daniel 10:19 The glory of this latter house shall be greater than of the former....and in this place will I give peace. Haggai 2:9 ‘Nation shall not lift up a sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. And none shall make them afraid, neither shall the sword go through their land. Mercy and truth are met together; righteousness and peace have kissed each other. Truth shall spring out of the earth, and righteousness shall look down from heaven. Open to me the gates of righteousness, I will go into them. Let all the nations be gathered together, and let the people be assembled; and let them hear, and say, it is the truth. And it shall come, that I will gather all nations and tongues. And they shall come and see my glory. And I will set a sign among them, and they shall declare my glory among the nations. For as the new heavens and the new earth, which I will make, shall remain before me, so shall your seed and your name remain for ever.’ Glory to God in the highest, and on earth, peace, good-will toward men. (Adapted from Micah 4:3; Leviticus 26:6; Psalms 85:10 and 118:19; Isaiah 43:9 and 66:18-22, and Luke 2:14) Dona nobis pacem. (Dona nobis pacem.)
