A word from

MAYOR JIM GUNNING In December, the City of Lone Tree released the results of our bi-annual Resident Survey. This survey helps City staff and officials better understand citizens’ satisfaction with the work we do on their behalf. It provides us important data and benchmarking to ensure we’re carrying out the wishes of our constituents and providing the best quality of life we can. The results started out strong and just got better from there. 98% of all Lone Tree residents rate our overall quality of life as “excellent” or “good”. Further review highlights our terrific leisure amenities as top reasons why citizens are so pleased. Building the Arts Center was a bit of a gamble; would it be worth it? Would it make our city more attractive? Would it add to our quality of life? Since the doors opened, we’ve been flooded by positive feedback about the staff, artistic choices, and overall environment; we knew people liked the Arts Center… but would the survey reflect that? Clearly, it did. 96% of respondents rate the Lone Tree Arts Center as a positive addition to our community – and almost half of our City’s population has attended an Arts Center event in the past year. The Arts Center is the highest ranked amenity Lone Tree has to offer. The Arts Center was built to serve the entire South Metro area, and it does. But it is a tremendous affirmation to learn that those citizens whose vote passed a bond to build the Arts Center are as pleased with the results as we are. Enjoy the show! Mayor Jim Gunning

A word from

Executive Director Lisa Rigsby Peterson Earlier in January, I went to the Association of Performing Arts Presenters (APAP) conference in New York. You know what show was getting all the buzz - the “must have” show for next year? The Doo-Wop Project! I felt so proud; once again, Lone Tree is ahead of the curve! The hit show is playing here before continuing on to major venues at cities across the country - just another way we’re trying to surpass every mark set for us here at LTAC. From sell-out crowds at summer concerts and holiday shows to LEED certification to top-notch programming, our talented staff share your enthusiasm for and dedication to this incredible Arts Center. Three years ago, as the Arts Center moved from a dream to an actual building project, one thing struck us about LTAC: we could be different. This could be a place that combined the warm, welcoming feeling of an intimate community center with top-notch professional theater and entertainment options. Since the day our doors opened, we have tried to capture that spirit in all that we do. While our second season is halfway over, there is still a HUGE second half to see! Internationally recognized SFJAZZ Collective will share the music of Chick Corea in a new and exciting way; the playwright and original director of Hank Williams: Lost Highway is joining us to direct this fabulous biographical musical; we’ll celebrate Black History Month with a live radio broadcast on the world’s fastest man, Jesse Owens; the funniest play I have ever seen will keep us out of the winter doldrums when Nick Sugar directs Noises Off; and two vibrant performances by the Colorado Symphony are sure to leave you breathless. Add in our wonderful Chamber Music and Essential Jazz series and I think you’ll agree, we’re on a roll! I hope you are excited as I am about this fantastic line-up. We look forward to welcoming you back through our doors soon. Lisa Rigsby Peterson

PROGRAM NOTES Purcell: Abdelazer, or the Moor’s Revenge – Overture and Rondeau Henry Purcell (1659-1695) was the first important English composer and for nearly two centuries after his death, almost the only English composer any music aficionado would have been able to name. Most famous of all his works is a set of short pieces that he wrote to accompany the play Abdelazer by Aphra Beh; it premiered in 1695, near the end of Purcell’s life.

The play would be of no lasting interest without the music that Purcell provided for it. Even the music has the 20th century English composer Benjamin Britten to thank for its revival, for it was here that Britten found the grand processional theme that would become the heart of his Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra. It is found in the Rondeau from Abdelazer, though here in its original setting, one discovers that Purcell made more of it than the short bit that Britten borrowed. It will be preceded by the

opening overture to the entire set provided by Britten for the original play.

Vivaldi: Piccolo Concerto in C, RV 443 Antonio Vivaldi (1678 – 1741) composed well over 400 concerti, more than half of them for the instrument of which he was himself master: the violin. Solo roles in the other concerti most often fall to the care of cellos, flutes, oboes, or even bassoons, thought he composer was also known to look even further afield. As for the piccolo concerto under consideration at the moment, Vivaldi cannot have actually had the piccolo in mind, as that highest of the familiar woodwinds did not exist in Vivaldi’s time. All evidence suggests that, instead, he was thinking of the so-called “sopranino” recorder: half the size and significantly higher in pitch than the standard recorder. If fourth-grade recorder ensembles have left some listeners with a guarded opinion of the instrument, let this concert stand as proof that, in the hands of a real virtuoso, as Vivaldi envisioned, the recorder is capable of much flamboyant effect. Transfer those solo lines to the equally high-pitched but even more piercing of tone piccolo – its metallic body making it more assertive than the wooden recorder – and the result is a work of electrifying drama.

composition files. Bach was passing off old works as new ones, but in one respect, the Margrave was well served. Thanks to Bach’s efforts, the Brandenburg name is recalled fondly throughout the musical world. The two Brandenburgs featured on tonight’s program bring different instruments into the solo roles. Number 3 is scored for three violins, three violas, three cellos, one double bass, and one harpsichord. There is no actual solo group, although individual voices arise here and there. Melodic themes arise in one set of three players and move to another, giving a sense in a live performance of the music sweeping across the ensemble. In the Brandenburg no. 5, solo roles are provided for a flute, a violin, and a harpsichord. Although Bach played many instruments with finesse, including the violin, it is clear here where his sympathies lie: firmly in the camp of the keyboard, for an intricate harpsichord solo comprises nearly a third of the first movement. These fearsome, cadenza-like passages offer a glimpse of what it may have been like to hear a harpsichord concert by Bach, one of the most respected keyboardists of his day.

Corelli: Concerto grosso in D, op. 6, no. 4 JS Bach: Brandenburg Concerto no. 3 in G, BWV 1048, and Brandenburg Concerto no. 5 in D, BWV 1050 The Brandenburg Concerti – two of which are featured tonight – are technically concerti grossi. Like the Corelli work that precedes them on this program, they feature multiple soloists set against the orchestra. The name “Brandenburg” comes from the Prussian royal family, one of the younger sons of which requested the works of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685 – 1750) late in 1718. Two years passed before Bach delivered a set of six concertos scored for diverse soloists. Even once the pieces arrived, the Margrave never paid for them. Perhaps he knew then what historians have proven since: that these so-called “Brandenburg Concertos” were not new and were not newly composed for the Margrave himself. Instead, they were revisions of earlier works, essentially the leavings of his

In the work, the first two movements begin with stately and thoughtful passages before turning to livelier moods with music nimble passagework. The first movement has a larger proportion of fast music than slow, the second more slow than fast. As for the last movement, its tempo change is from fast to faster yet, ensuring that the concerto will end in a burst of fireworks. Of the soloists, it is the two violinists who seize much of the spotlight, the cellist coming into equal prominence mostly in the final movement. In scarcely a dozen minutes, and with a relatively homogeneous ensemble at his disposal, Corelli yet managed to craft a work of impressively varied moods.
