SPONSOR SPOTLIGHT Hitting the Right Notes The parallels between a baseball team and a symphony are numerous. To make beautiful music or a winning club, both require a blueprint for success, sound leadership, intense preparation, countless hours of training and a harmonious combination of timing and good old-fashioned but difficult to define... chemistry. Taking these intrinsic similarities to the next level, the Rockies are excited about a new partnership with the Colorado Symphony (CSO) this season. In early November, after a marketing staffer was inspired by her first Colorado Symphony performance at Boettcher Concert Hall, the Rockies approached the Symphony about a potential partnership. As it turns out, the interest was mutual and the work of creating an original composition began quickly. Although the CSO does not have an in-house composer, but they are not short on connections. Within days of the first conversation, the CSO enlisted Charles Denler, a local Emmy® Awardwinning composer to write the music. Denler had very little time to compose the core theme, but he delivered. On February 19, the full 80-person orchestra was assembled at Boettcher for a 90-minute recording session, amassing many versions of the core composition to be used in various ways, including in-stadium and in television commercials. Fans were introduced to the music on Opening Day. A two-minute “Take the Field” composition, described by Denler as “upbeat and very aggressive,” will accompany the 2014 team highlight video played just before the starting lineup steps out of the dugout and takes their positions to start each game. In fact, Colorado Symphony brass and percussionists performed the theme live from the field on April 4, Opening Day. Both the Rockies and the Colorado Symphony look forward to all that can develop from this partnership. Dinger has already participated in a performance for kids at Boettcher Concert Hall and smaller ensembles are scheduled to perform on The Rooftop this season. Creating an original composition was just the beginning.

The 2013/14 Masterworks season ends with Gershwinâ€™s classic, in an original arrangement by Andrew Litton. Our maestro, a masterpiece: Who could ask for anything more?
18 SOUNDINGS 2013/14 | COLORADOSYMPHONY.ORG
Andrew Litton, Music Director
Andrew Litton and George Gershwin go way back. For starters, the Colorado Symphony Music Director and Gershwin, one of the most beloved American songwriters and composers, have a lot in common. Like the grandparents of George and his brother Ira, Litton’s grandparents were immigrants from Russia. And also like the Gershwins, Litton was raised a musical boy in New York City, a stone’s throw from the Gershwin family home. Gershwin has been one of the few constants in a life and career defined by change and diversity. In 1979, as a young pianist, Andrew was invited to perform Rhapsody in Blue in Moscow, conducted by Yevgeny Svetlanov. He returned
to Moscow in 1980, amid the chaos of the then-recent Russian invasion of Afghanistan. The unusual timing of a visit from an up-andcoming American artist amid the chaos of military conflict caught the attention of the international media. As conductor, performer and recording artist, Litton has carried his love of Gershwin with him to every podium. He’s recorded Gershwin’s music with the Bournemouth Symphony, the Bergen Philharmonic, the Royal Philharmonic and the Dallas Symphony. In May, Litton closes the Colorado Symphony’s 2013/14 season with a blockbuster rendition of the Porgy and Bess Suite, featuring baritone Gordon Hawkins in the role of Porgy. (Hawkins recently won audiences in the title role of Opera Colorado’s Rigoletto.) Litton invites you to Catfish Row

– and into the Porgy & Bess Concert Suite, his 1996 arrangement of Gershwin’s classic opera which includes beloved classics “Summertime,” “It Ain’t Necessarily So” and “I Loves You Porgy.” Here Andrew talks with Anthony Pierce, Colorado Symphony Vice President of Artistic Administration, about the joy of Porgy and the genius of Gershwin. For a podcast of the complete conversation, including Litton’s musings on Gustav Mahler, visit www.coloradosymphony.org/soundings. Anthony Pierce: We close with a huge program — Porgy and Bess, the iconic American opera, based on DuBose Heyward’s book. Tell me about your experience with Porgy. Andrew Litton: I fell in love with the music of Gershwin as a kid. As a pianist, I learned ‘Rhapsody in Blue,’ would play it even people didn’t ask, at every opportunity. In seventh grade, we did Girl Crazy, his famous 1930 musical, at my school. All those hits songs, one after the other, are in the original Girl Crazy, starting with ‘Embraceable You,’ one of the most beautiful love songs ever written. That musical was a turning point in history, the debut of Ethel Merman, who was such a whirlwind. She stopped the show every night, with ‘I Got Rhythm.’ What isn’t often talked about was who was in the pit. As musicians we all have to start somewhere. I, too, sat in the pit and played keyboard for ballet when I was 18, 19. Sitting in the pit for Girl Crazy was the original Benny Goodman Quartet, Benny Goodman, Teddy Wilson, Gene Krupa and Lionel Hampton. It was amazing. So that was your introduction. The more I explored Gershwin and the world he lived in and the friends he had the people
he consorted with, the more fascinating it became. I’m also a New Yorker! I basically grew up 100 yards from where he lived; he and Ira lived in two apartments on Riverside Drive for ten years. I became pretty much obsessed with Gershwin and got to know the opera fairly early on in my life. Later, like all assistant conductors — I was 22 at the time — I did the Russell Bennett suite, which comes up in Pops concerts all the time. But then I discovered that George Gershwin himself had written an orchestral suite called Catfish Row, much less often done, about 23 minutes of music, stitched together. My whole beef with the Bennett was that it really turned the opera into a Broadway show. That’s been an ongoing beef since 1935 when it was premiered: Is it an opera, or is it a Broadway show? That’s tough when the composer in question had only written Broadway shows up to that point. The controversy continued because the Gershwin brothers liked money, like we all do. When the option came to have it premiered at the Metropolitan Opera or on Broadway, well, the Met would have done it nine times, because that’s what opera houses do, where

My version is maybe two-thirds of the original. Porgy is very long. Part of the great tragedy of Gershwin, for me, is that there’s no doubt in my mind he would have learned, like the other natural songwriter, Giuseppe Verdi, that sometimes brevity is a good thing. Verdi it seemed could just breathe tunes, things just came out so natural. Maybe we had to work harder at it than it seemed; we don’t know. You can always go out of a Verdi opera singing the tunes. That’s the same thing with George Gershwin. He had this ability also. What Verdi was writing in his midGordon Hawkins reprises the role of Porgy with the Colorado 30s is not his best stuff; he grew; Symphony in May. what he was writing in his 40s, all the way up to his 80s, were his masterpieces. We are on Broadway you can do it for years. So deprived of knowing this about Gershwin George chopped it up and it became more of because he died tragically two years after a Broadway show. So Russell Bennett was not writing this opera. out of line when he made his suite into an even more popsy, jazzy treatment. And it’s accessible. You can afford to produce it, as an orchestra. In about 1990, I was moaning to [Litton friend and opera singer Willard White]. I said, ‘I’m just so sad there are no other options that are truer to the opera.’ And he said, ‘Well, Andrew. Why don’t you do a suite?’ It was like, when someone says, ‘When you’re in town, stop by.’ You don’t think seriously about it. Until I was like, ‘Well, yeah. I could do it.’ So I started working on it. Started using the original Catfish Row orchestral suite that George himself made as a kind of template. I wanted this to be able to be done by symphony orchestras. I wanted four singers — which is the same as Beethoven 9 or Verdi Requiem — and a big choral part, because of course, the chorus is Catfish Row. The whole point of the opera is this big community of people who live so closely together.
What’s so fantastic about this opera is he puts in every type of musical form he could have possibly ever encountered. There’s even a moment in the opera where Mariah sings, ‘I hate your struttin’ style.’ And it is completely early rap. It’s even spoken to a beat. So we’ve got rap, folk tunes, Broadway tunes, jazz and symphonic music, all wrapped up in one package. It’s just amazing how much he accomplishes in this one piece, and to think of what he would have written when he was fifty or sixty. It’s tragic when one thinks that way. The good news is, at least we have this. Andrew Litton conducts the Porgy and Bess Suite Friday, Mary 16 and Saturday, May 17 at 7:30 pm, and Sunday, May 18 at 2:30 pm at Boettcher Concert Hall. This Masterworks program also features Beethoven’s Triple Concerto in C major for Piano, Violin, and Cello, featuring Andrew Litton on piano, Colorado Symphony Concertmaster Yumi HwangWilliams on violin and principal cellist Silver Ainomäe.

SYMPHONY AT THE MOVIES PROGRAM NOTES Disney’s Fantasia – Live in Concert (2012) Program notes by Alexander Rannie Copyright © 2012 by Alexander Rannie Fantasia (1940) and Fantasia 2000 (1999) In this age of 3D, HD, widescreen, 7.1 surround sound – and that’s just in your living room! – it can be hard to fathom how revolutionary Fantasia was upon its theatrical release in 1940. Neither symphony hall concertgoers nor families headed to the movies to catch the latest Disney cartoon were prepared for the breadth and depth of color and sound that poured forth from the screen. Walt Disney (1901-1966) and conductor Leopold Stokowski (1882-1977), in collaboration with the talents of 1,000-plus artists, musicians, and engineers at the Walt Disney Studio, the RCA Corporation, composer, author, and commentator Deems Taylor (1885-1966), dozens of dancers (including Marge Champion and members of the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo and Ballet Theatre), and the entire Philadelphia Orchestra, created a watershed cinematic experience that remains a visionary milestone to this day. Sadly, the expense of installing the Fantasound audio playback system in theaters, and the loss of the European market because of World War II, nixed Walt’s dream of an ongoing “Concert Feature,” wherein individual segments would be replaced by new ones. Though the Walt Disney Studio would utilize popular songs in several package films of the ’40s and ’50s, it would remain until 1999 and the release of Fantasia 2000, spearheaded by Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, for a Disney-produced feature-length marriage of classical music and animation to once again reach the screen. Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 5 in C minor, op. 67, Allegro con brio (1804-08) To begin Fantasia 2000 with a bang, Disney artists chose the opening movement of Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony, its short-short-short-long musical motif immediately grabbing the listener’s ear. And it also slyly references the time period of the original Fantasia when this four-note motif, the same rhythm as Morse code for the letter V (“di-di-di-dah”), underscored the “V for Victory!” rallying cry of the Allies in World War II. Computer animation was combined with hand-drawn pastels to create the look of this segment, the abstractions of what might be butterflies and bats paying homage to the abstract animated films of Len Lye and Oskar Fischinger, who had earlier influenced the opening segment of the original Fantasia, Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D minor. Here, light battles dark to the repeated rhythm of “di-di-di-dah,” suggesting that victory can’t be far away. Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No. 6 in F major, op. 68 (“Pastoral”) Allegro, Allegro, Allegretto (1808) Conceived as an Art Deco interpretation of life in mythological Greece, Fantasia’s “Pastoral” segment was originally set to “The Entrance of the Little Fauns,” a brief episode from Gabriel Pierné’s ballet Cydalise et le Chèvre-pied. It soon became apparent that the story artists’ ideas were too great for such a trifle. In searching for a piece of music to support their vision, the Disney artists came across Beethoven’s program for his Sixth Symphony, in which he describes several pastoral episodes (scenes which take place in the country), including, “Happy gathering of country folk; Thunderstorm; Shepherds’ song; cheerful and thankful feelings after the storm.” Stokowski felt that Beethoven was ill-suited to Disney and Art Deco, but Fantasia’s onscreen commentator, composer Deems Taylor, was in favor of the match. Walt liked the idea that so many folks who’d never been exposed to classical music would have an opportunity to experience it as never before. As he put it, “Gee, this’ll make Beethoven!”
SYMPHONY AT THE MOVIES PROGRAM NOTES Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky: Nutcracker Suite, op. 71a (1892) One of the striking features of Fantasia’s Nutcracker Suite is how memorable the characters are considering how short a time they’re on screen. With personality to spare, these often faceless anthropomorphized flora and fauna (and faeries) remain with us long after the last note of music has faded away. One in particular, Hop Low, the smallest of the mushrooms in the “Chinese Dance,” always elicits sympathetic laughter from the audience – even though he’s onscreen for only a minute! When animating the “Chinese Dance,” artist Art Babbitt kept a copy of the music on his desk to help navigate the play of musical counterpoint. He also admitted to being influenced by the antics of one of The Three Stooges. When asked if he received any assistance with the choreography of the mushrooms, Babbitt replied, “The only choreographic suggestion I ever got came from Walt Disney himself. I had animated the little mushroom taking his bow on the last note of music. Walt suggested he take the bow after. Both ways would have worked, depending on one’s translation of the little guy’s character.” Claude Debussy (orchestrated by Leopold Stokowski): “Clair de lune” from Suite bergamasque (1890/1905) “Clair de lune” was fully recorded, animated, and shot before being cut from Fantasia, ostensibly to shorten the overall running time of the film. The animation was later edited and released as part of the package film Make Mine Music (1946), accompanied by the popular song “Blue Bayou” (not to be confused with Roy Orbison’s “Blue Bayou”). Fortunately, a work print of the complete, unedited “Clair de lune,” as well as a copy of Stokowski’s original performance, survived and were reunited in a 1996 restoration. Walt saw “Clair de lune” as a segment to stand in contrast to the others around it, a moment of reflection and repose. Its sustained, evocative, slightly mysterious mood, enhanced by remarkably fluid camera work following two herons in flight in the moonlight, reveals the work of a studio at the top of its game. Igor Stravinsky: Firebird Suite (1919 Version) Igor Stravinsky’s ballet The Firebird was considered but rejected for use in the original Fantasia in favor of another of his ballets, The Rite of Spring. (Stravinsky was the only living composer to have heard his composition in Fantasia.) But the appeal of The Firebird’s music held fast to the artists at the Disney studio and over the years, when the idea of revisiting Fantasia was brought up, thoughts often returned to this early Stravinsky work. For Fantasia 2000, Disney artists crafted a story far removed from the original scenario of Stravinsky’s ballet: no longer a benevolent, if capricious being, the Firebird is now a frightening, fiery sprit of destruction who seeks to destroy the forest home of a Spring Sprite and her companion elk. The look of the segment taps into Anime sensibilities as well as the real-life eruption of Mount St. Helens, all to the purpose of illustrating nature’s circle of life, death, and rebirth. Paul Dukas: The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (1896-97) Less than a decade after Mickey Mouse’s arrival on the silver screen, Walt Disney felt that the popularity of his alter ego was waning and decided to feature him in a retelling of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s poem, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, accompanied by Paul Dukas’s composition of the same name. A chance meeting between Walt and Leopold Stokowski led to the famed leader of the Philadelphia Orchestra agreeing to conduct at no cost. Disney envisioned a superior offering, with production values far above the usual Mickey Mouse or Silly Symphony cartoon. No expense was spared. Storyboards were done in full color. Mickey’s design was updated to allow for greater expression and, for the first time, his eyes had pupils. Animators studied live-action reference of a UCLA athlete jumping hurdles in order to accurately portray PROGRAM 4 SOUNDINGS 2013/14 | COLORADOSYMPHONY.ORG
SYMPHONY AT THE MOVIES PROGRAM NOTES Mickey’s struggles. Layout and color design were planned in great detail in order to convey in images what could not be said with words. By the time The Sorcerer’s Apprentice was completed, its budget was several times that of a normal Silly Symphony. Realizing he couldn’t get a return on his investment with a standalone cartoon, Walt decided to make The Sorcerer’s Apprentice the centerpiece of a “Concert Feature.” “When [Sorcerer] was almost finished,” Stokowski wrote, “Walt said to me: ‘Why don’t we make a bigger picture with all kinds of music?’ and that led to Fantasia.” The Sorcerer’s Apprentice remains not only the seed from which the great “Concert Feature” grew, but perhaps the greatest ten minutes of animated storytelling ever produced. Sir Edward Elgar: Pomp and Circumstance (adapted by Peter Schickele from Pomp and Circumstance Military Marches, op. 39, nos. 1 , 2 , 3 [1904/05], and 4 ) In looking for a piece of music for Fantasia 2000 that would be familiar to a wide-ranging audience, Disney artists hit upon the idea of using Elgar’s Pomp and Circumstance March No.1, a mainstay at high school and college graduations in the United States, and familiar under various other guises worldwide. Numerous story ideas were considered and rejected, including one that featured a royal procession of Disney princes and princesses presenting their offspring to Donald Duck! After developing and discarding a concept that involved animating every Disney character ever created, it was decided that, since The Sorcerer’s Apprentice gives Mickey Mouse his moment in the spotlight, Donald should have a moment of hope and glory as well. A retelling of the story of Noah’s Ark, with Donald in the role of the Patriarch, provided plenty of opportunities for marching – two-by-two, of course – as well a variety of possibilities for the frustration-inducing, yet humorous incidents that are the bane of Donald’s existence. That Donald loses and regains his true love in such a grand tapestry only adds to the poignancy of this duck tale. Ottorino Respighi: Pines of Rome (1924) Respighi’s Pines of Rome was one of the earliest segments of Fantasia 2000 green-lit for production. And it was, according to Roy Disney, “the first musical selection I suggested.” Just as the artists working on the original Fantasia stretched the boundaries of available technology, artists working on Pines of Rome were eager to show what could be accomplished with the then still-new technology of computer animation. (This is in the days before Toy Story!) Inspired by Roy Disney’s tales of piloting through cumulus thunderhead cloud formations, Disney artists combined elements of traditional hand-drawn animation with computer generated characters and environments to create the plausible impossible – a pod of flying humpback whales! As to what happens to the whales, the artists suggest that it’s up to the interpretation of the individual viewer. Roy Disney said, “Certainly it is about hope and rebirth, but there’s also a mystical quality to it that seems to transcend all that.” Amilcare Ponchielli: Dance of the Hours from the opera La Gioconda (1876) Using such diverse touchstones as the animal caricatures of artists T. S. Sullivant and Heinrich Kley, and a George Balanchine ballet for the 1938 film The Goldwyn Follies (where ballerina Vera Zorina emerges effulgent from a reflecting pool), director T. Hee’s anthropomorphic marriage of high art and low in Dance of the Hours never fails to elicit gales of laughter. This loving parody of classical dance, “a pageant of the hours of the day,” begins with Ostrich Ballet: Morning, in which an ostrich corps de ballet is awakened by Mlle. Upanova (modeled on Ballet Theatre ballerina Irina Baronova). Next comes Hippo Ballet: Afternoon, where Hyacinth Hippo (modeled on stage, radio, and screen actress Hattie Noel, as well as live-action model for Snow White and the Blue Fairy, dancer Marge Champion) makes her first appearance. Elephant Ballet: Evening follows, SOUNDINGS 2013/14 | COLORADOSYMPHONY.ORG PROGRAM 5
SYMPHONY AT THE MOVIES PROGRAM NOTES wherein the corps executes an elaborate bubble dance. (Walt suggested that the “elephants’ trunks can come up and spray like the Beverly Hills fountain.”) Next comes Alligator Ballet: Night. Here, Ben Ali Gator (modeled on Ballet Russe dancer David Lichine) and Hyacinth Hippo (additionally modeled on Lichine’s wife, Tatiana Riabouchinska) dance a pas de deux unrivalled in the history of ballet. A grand finale brings down the house. Literally! Walt continually added gags to Dance of the Hours, but never at the expense of the ballet. “The whole incongruity of the thing,” he said, “is the elephants and hippos doing what graceful people do. Of course, they can use natural props like their trunks.” Camille Saint-Saëns: Finale from Le carnaval des animaux (“Carnival of the Animals”) (1886) Joe Grant, a story director on the original Fantasia who had returned to the Disney Studio in the ’80s and inspired a new generation of filmmakers, first proposed the Finale from Carnival of the Animals as an encore piece to Dance of the Hours featuring Mlle. Upanova and her ostrich corps de ballets. The story evolved into the tale of a single heroic flamingo (who just happens to have amazing yo-yo skills) humorously battling the conformity of his fellow flamingos. Just as the original Fantasia’s concept art demanded the development of new ink and paint techniques to capture the subtleties of pastel drawings, Carnival’s story sketches inspired new technologies to capture the nuances of the watercolor originals. Cleaned-up pencil animation was transferred onto watercolor paper and hand-painted before being digitally composited with watercolor backgrounds. The backgrounds themselves reveal who has the upper hand, the hero flamingo or his compatriots. If the sky is a harsh yellow, the stand of flamingos is in control. But if the sky is a mellow green, Our Hero is triumphant. Fantasia 2000 producer Roy Disney loved the Carnival of the Animals segment as it solved for him “the ancient riddle of what happens when a flock of flamingos encounters a yo-yo.” Alexander Rannie is a composer and historian whose original scores include “The Ren & Stimpy Show,” Walt Disney’s “Alice Comedies,” and Screen Novelties’ Monster Safari. He’s worked for Walt Disney Feature Animation (where he assisted in the restoration of Fantasia), Roy E. Disney and Shamrock Holdings, and Diane Disney Miller and The Walt Disney Family Foundation. In May of 2011 the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra gave the world premiere of Rannie’s score for Walt Disney’s Oswald the Lucky Rabbit cartoon Trolley Troubles (1927). www.alexanderrannie.com

JOSHUA BELL, violin Often referred to as the “poet of the violin,” Joshua Bell’s stunning virtuosity, beautiful tone and charismatic stage presence have brought him universal acclaim. An Avery Fisher Prize recipient, Bell recently received the New York Recording Academy Honors. As the first person appointed Music Director of the Academy of St Martin in the Fields (ASMF) since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958, their first CD under Bell’s leadership of Beethoven’s 4th and 7th symphonies debuted at #1 on the Billboard Classical chart. Season highlights include a European and U.S. tour with Academy St. Martin of the Fields, performances with the Vienna Philharmonic, National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center, and with the Los Angeles Philharmonic. Bell’s 2007 incognito subway station performance resulted in a provocative Washington Post Pulitzer Prize-winning story examining art and context. The conversation continues with the new Annick Press illustrated children’s book, The Man With the Violin. As a soloist, chamber musician, and conductor, Bell has recorded more than 40 CDs garnering Grammy,® Mercury, Gramophone and Echo Klassik awards. Recent releases include French Impressions with pianist Jeremy Denk, At Home With Friends, Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons, and Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto with the Berlin Philharmonic. His discography encompasses the major violin repertoire in addition to John Corigliano’s Oscar-winning soundtrack, The Red Violin. Bell plays the 1713 Huberman Stradivarius. www.joshuabell.com PROGRAM 8 SOUNDINGS 2013/14 | COLORADOSYMPHONY.ORG
