Letter from the Board Chair _____________________________ Welcome to the Tucson Symphony Orchestra’s 84th Season! In the words of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “Music is the universal language of mankind.” In any language, the TSO has prepared yet another universal season for our community. Please join me in welcoming back to our stage Music Director George Hanson and the outstanding TSO musicians. We are also pleased to have CEO Andrew Birgensmith and the administrative staff hard at work behind the scenes. But it takes all of you to complete the experience. After all, without our audience, subscribers, donors and ticket buyers, there would be no TSO experience to celebrate. As we sit in the hall and are transformed by the music performed by our musicians, we must acknowledge our Southern Arizona business leaders and individual donors whose generosity has made this season a reality. Philanthropic support through gifts and grants, large and small, have played a part with every nonprofit in Southern Arizona and the TSO is no exception. That annual support is the foundation upon which the TSO is able to present top quality programs year after year. Thank you for ensuring that the TSO will continue to serve as the cornerstone of the Tucson Arts Community. As the first symphony orchestra in the Southwest and the longest continuously performing professional arts organization in Arizona, we take our responsibility to the community seriously. Research continues to document the critically important impact of music on a child’s developing mind. Participating children show documented advancement in math, science, literacy, critical thinking and life skills! That is why we remain committed to our programming in the schools and residencies in Southern Arizona. It is also why we continue to bring worldrenowned musicians to perform with the TSO and why these artists are made available to talented young people studying performance and composition through the TSO. Finally, it is why we continue to offer the Young Composers Project, the most comprehensive program in the country in which young people (ages 9-18) are able to study, compose and hear their works played by the professional musicians of the TSO. This is just one of the TSO’s award-winning education programs which have touched tens of thousands of students and their families in our community. We ask you to enjoy your Tucson Symphony, to leave your cares at the door and to leave each performance with a new appreciation for this outstanding group of musicians who are making Tucson a wonderful place to live. Cordially,

Barbara R. Levy, Chair, Board of Trustees 84th Season

The Musical Instrument Museum increased the number of public education programs it presented by 64% over the previous year.

Letter from the TSO President & CEO______________________ Dear Friends, As you experience this season of music, I hope that you have had moments of joy, wonder, surprise, empathy, and exuberance. All of these emotions exemplify how music uniquely shapes and influences our lives. There are many considerations that influence programming choices for the season but our priority is always you. You inspire us to challenge ourselves artistically and perform works that are vast in scope, intimate in nature—some wellknown and some for you to hear for the first time. We are deeply grateful for your support and interested in what you experience. To that end, we are asking for your opinion. At select concerts, surveys are being provided to you. Please take a moment and let us know your thoughts. Of course, you can always write me directly by email at abirgensmith@tucsonsymphony.org or by mail at 2175 N. Sixth Avenue, Tucson, AZ 85705. Thank you for being here today—you have my sincere appreciation for your time, attention, and belief in the importance of symphonic music in our community. Best regards,

Andrew Birgensmith President & CEO

About the Tucson Symphony Orchestra ____________________ The Tucson Symphony Orchestra, now in its 84th Season, serves Tucson and Southern Arizona communities with performances and education programs of the highest caliber. The concert season extends from October to May with more than 70 orchestra and 260 chamber ensemble performances each year. Each concert season offers Classic, Pops! and MasterWorks Series, Classic, MasterWorks and TSO Pops! Specials and a series of free chamber ensemble performances for families entitled Just for Kids. In 1928, Harry Juliani, a UA Law School graduate who had put himself through the first year of law school at New York University as a freelance bassist and clarinetist, met with a small group of civic leaders and music lovers to select musicians, elect a conductor and discuss programming. Approximately 60 musicians began weekly rehearsals at the Presbyterian Church next to the Scottish Rite Temple under the baton of Camil Van Hulse, a Belgian and World War I refugee who had come to Tucson for his health. The Orchestra’s first performance had to be postponed from the autumn of 1928 because of a nationwide flu epidemic, but when the debut finally took place in the Tucson High School Auditorium on January 13, 1929, the headline in the Arizona Daily Star proclaimed, “Tucson Orchestra Proves Its Worth in Brilliant Program.” Today, the TSO still earns rave reviews. The first symphony orchestra in the Southwest, it is the oldest continuously performing professional arts organization in Arizona. Tucson has grown from a city of 45,000 to over one million and the TSO is comprised entirely of professional musicians, administered by professional staff and governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees. In 1996, George Hanson became the 14th Music Director and Conductor of the TSO. During his tenure, the TSO reached another milestone when it released its first CD. An award-winning recording team captured internationally acclaimed pianist Alain Lefèvre, the TSO and the TSO Chorus under Mr. Hanson’s deft baton performing works for orchestra by the French Canadian composer, André Mathieu. The recording debuted at No. 2 on the Classical music sales chart in the U.S., No. 1 on the Canadian Classical sales chart and garnered positive reviews from the international music media. Since then, the TSO has achieved more milestones. On May 1, 2010, the TSO became the first arts organization to perform for the Tohono O’odham Nation with a String Quartet recital, a Just for Kids program and a full orchestra concert. In January, 2011, an international television audience saw the TSO Brass and Percussion ensembles perform before President Barack Obama delivered a speech at a community-wide observance entitled Together We Thrive: Tucson and America. In February, 2012, the TSO performed two sold-out Arizona Centennial concerts observing the 100th anniversary of statehood. The TSO presents more than 400 education and community engagement programs annually, reaching more than 60,000 children and adults. The TSO provides the most in-depth music education programs in all of Arizona including the Young Composers Project, which has been praised by Yo-Yo Ma and has received grants from the National Endowment for the Arts for five consecutive years, 2008 to 2012. In 2011, the TSO received one of only four NEA grants given in arts education throughout the state of Arizona and was the only Arizona orchestra to receive NEA grant funding. Other honors bestowed on the TSO include the Governor’s Arts Award in 2004 recognizing its 75 years of significant community impact and the first American Symphony Orchestra League Bank of America Award for Excellence in Orchestra Education.

“Swimming hurt. Walking hurt. Everything hurt. I told my doctor, ‘I can’t live like this.’ After testing and X-rays he said, ‘You’re going to need a hip replacement. If you want to go to the best, you need to go to Tucson Medical Center.’ The surgery was just 45 minutes, and when I woke up, I never experienced that pain again. They had me up and walking within 4 hours. Within 6 weeks I was allowed back on my bike, and within 6 months I competed and finished the Australian Ironman. TMC is a top-notch facility. Great medical center, great surgeons, and you can have your life back. If I had to, I would do it again tomorrow.”

January 26, 2013 – June 16, 2013 Including two and three dimensional artworks from the permanent collection, this exhibition spans Pre–Columbian through Contemporary Latin American art, highlighting the importance of representations of the feminine throughout Latin America and how these representations have changed over time.

January 26, 2013 – June 16, 2013 Deeper stories can be told about art of the American West through representations of the elements water, fire, air, and earth.The diverse art forms featured in this exhibition reflect the unique cultural and spiritual characteristics of the West.Through pottery, jewelry, textiles, paintings, and other objects, the exhibition explores how the elements compose the artistic foundations of Western art.

PROGRAM NOTES OVERTURE TO LA SCALA DI SETA (THE SILKEN STAIRCASE) GIOACCHINO ROSSINI

Born February 29, 1792 in Pesaro, Italy Died November 13, 1868 in Passy, Italy INSTRUMENTATION Flute (doubling on piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, bassoon, 2 horns and strings PERFORMANCE TIME 7 minutes LAST PERFORMED BY THE TSO January 2001 PREMIERED May 9, 1812 in Venice Rossini was the master of comic opera, though only a handful of his thirty-nine operas are performed regularly in the twenty-first century. He retains the most fame as the quintessential opera overture composer. Even those overtures for his most serious operas are brimming with good humor, sparkling melodies, and energy. Above all, Rossini understood the need for a hummable tune, and his overtures provide that in spades. Rossini is one of the few composers who had an entire technique named after him—the Rossini crescendo. This technique is not just an increase in volume as the name might imply. Rossini usually begins with one phrase, repeated three times. He then shortens the phrase and repeats the shortened version, increasing the number of instruments playing. Because the harmonies change

84th Season

more quickly, the effect is that the music is speeding up, even if the tempo is not actually changing. La Scala di Seta was first performed in 1812 when he was only twenty years old. Though the overture was an immediate hit, the opera itself never achieved success. It was composed very quickly, and premiered only two months after Rossini’s first big hit, L’Inganno felic (The Fortunate Deception). La Scala di Seta, or The Silken Staircase, was the story of a secret marriage, and is so named for the staircase the main character used to climb to his beloved. This opera was criticized for being too similar to the hugely popular hit by Cimarosa, Il Matrimonio segreto, another story of a secret relationship. Rebecca Cain

TRITTICO BOTTICELLIANO, P. 151 OTTORINO RESPIGHI

Born July 9, 1879 in Bologna, Italy Died April 18, 1936 in Rome, Italy INSTRUMENTATION Flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, horn, trumpet, percussion, harp, celesta, piano and strings PERFORMANCE TIME 18 minutes LAST PERFORMED BY THE TSO Never performed by the TSO PREMIERED October 1927 in Vienna Trittico Botticelliano, or the Botticelli Triptych, was inspired by three paintings by Florentine painter Sandro Botticelli (1445-1510). All three paintings are now in the Galleria degli Uffizi in Florence. Respighi was motivated to compose this set of works by an American patron, Elizabeth Sprague Coolidge. La Primavera (Spring) sets a scene that includes shepherds, nymphs, goddesses, and at least 130 varieties of plants and flowers. Spring is depicted with shimmering bird calls, the blowing of the wind, and a country dance. L’adorazione dei Magi (The Adoration of the Magi), painted around 1476, is a typical theme of the Renaissance, particularly in Florence. It shows the Magi, as kings, at the feet of the baby Jesus, presenting him with gifts.

Respighi uses the melody of ”Veni, Veni Emmanuel,” composed as early as the 12th century as one melody for this movement. (This melody is familiar to Christians of many denominations as ”O Come, O Come, Emmanuel,” widely sung during Advent.) The movement opens as a sicilienne based on the Italian tune “O Bambino.” The final movement is La nascita de Venere (“The Birth of Venus”), painted in 1486, which depicts the goddess Venus emerging fully grown from the sea. Respighi uses the strings to depict the rolling waves of the ocean. As Venus grows closer to the shore, the fragments of a melody grow in a crescendo before fading away entirely. Rebecca Cain

GLI UCCELLI (THE BIRDS), P. 154 OTTORINO RESPIGHI INSTRUMENTATION

2 flutes (one doubling piccolo), oboe, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, harp, celesta and strings PERFORMANCE TIME 19 minutes LAST PERFORMED BY THE TSO March 1999 Respighi’s most famous orchestral compositions fall primarily into two categories. The first and more commonly performed group is made up of those tone poems celebrating the glories of Rome—Fountains of Rome, Pines of Rome, and Roman Festivals. His famous Ancient Airs and Dances and The Birds are in a different category—based on sixteenth through eighteenth-century lute and harpsichord music and brought to life by his modern and imaginative orchestration. In The Birds, each movement is directly based on a song from a composer of the past. The prelude is from a song by Italian composer Bernardo Pasquini. Respighi briefly introduces each of the tunes that will be heard in the subsequent movements. The Dove uses a theme by French composer and lute player Jacques de

84th Season

Gallot. The gentle melody is played by the oboe while the strings trill softly in the background, suggesting the murmur of a dove. The third movement, the Hen, is from a harpsichord work by Jean-Philippe Rameau. Clucking woodwinds paint a picture of a happy and perhaps selfimportant bird going about his business. The fourth movement is the Nightingale, an anonymous English composition transcribed by Dutch composer and organist Jacob van Eyck. The fifth movement, the Cuckoo, is again by Pasquini. The well-known call of the cuckoo-bird is heard from the start, played by all the woodwinds and horns at different times. The melody from the first movement also returns, tying the piece together at the end. Rebecca Cain

SYMPHONY NO. 4 IN A MAJOR, OP. 90, “ITALIAN” FELIX MENDELSSOHN

Born February 3, 1809 in Hamburg, Germany Died November 4, 1847 in Leipzig, Germany INSTRUMENTATION 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani and strings PERFORMANCE TIME 27 minutes LAST PERFORMED BY THE TSO November 2005 PREMIERED May 13, 1833 in London Mendelssohn’s family was one of genius. Both Felix and his sister Fanny exhibited signs of exceptional talent by the age of nine. From there they took divergent paths. Felix was encouraged to become a great composer while Fanny’s talents were left to languish and were not rediscovered until recently. From 1829-1831, Mendelssohn at the age of 20, took a European tour. His Italian itinerary started in Venice, where he admired the architecture of the churches and the artwork of Titian. But it was later in Rome that he exclaimed, “Rome’s past seems to me like history itself. Its monuments inspire, whether they make one feel serious or gay. It is satisfying to think that human beings can accomplish something which continues to refresh them and strengthen them after a thousand years.”

He started the composition of the Fourth Symphony while still in Italy saying that he wanted to impart his impressions of the art, nature, and people of Italy. It wasn’t completed until 1833 when it was first performed in London. The opening of the first movement surely depicts the warmth of the Italian countryside, showing his new found love of that landscape. The second movement is more Baroque in structure perhaps in tribute to his appreciation of Baroque paintings he saw while in Italy. The third movement centers on a minuet, the conventional form at the time. The fourth movement, from a “Saltarello,” was a lively, happy dance from Naples (circa 1400) which featured a “hop” at the upbeat or final note. After witnessing the Roman Carnival of 1831 which featured a Saltarello, Mendelssohn incorporated the dance into the finale. John Padget

MEET THE MUSICIAN: JOHANNA LUNDY, PRINCIPAL HORN Johanna Lundy has earned a devoted following as the Principal Horn of the Tucson Symphony Orchestra, a position she has held since 2006. As a performer, Johanna has given many hours of enjoyment to residents of Tucson, Phoenix and Southern Arizona. Her playing has been hailed as “breathtaking” by the Arizona Daily Star. Outside of the TSO, Ms. Lundy often performs in solo settings, most recently, Mozart’s Concerto No. 4 with the Tucson Chamber Artists in November and at the Southwest Horn Conference last January. In October 2010, Johanna received the 40 Under 40 Award for her professional accomplishments and community involvement. The following April she made her solo debut with the TSO performing Reinhold Glière’s Horn Concerto, which she also had perfromed previously at the Aspen Music Festival. She describes the concerto as extremely difficult, but chose it because she knew the audience would like it. “It’s very romantic and virtuosic,” says Johanna. “It’s like the Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto except for the horn. It’s a little over the top—the highest of the

84th Season

range as well as the lowest. It has flashy moments but also Russian melodies and a kind of folksy spirit. I think it’s one of the really great concertos written for the instrument.” She was rewarded with standing ovations after both performances. The Arizona Daily Star called her playing “muscular yet with a hint of vulnerability” and praised the “warm tones that were full of brightness” that came from her instrument. The Green Valley News and Sun said the concerto was performed “at the highest level of professional musicianship. Every attack was pure, controlled and perfect,” stated the review. “Lundy’s technique and tones would have made Richard Strauss, who loved the horn, sit up and take notice.” Johanna claims the horn is “a less commonly featured solo instrument, but one that is well suited to the task due to its rich, beautiful sound” and admits “we have a small but pretty solid repertoire.” “There are several Mozart concertos for the horn, Richard Strauss wrote two, and there are many chamber works that feature the horn,” she says. “It’s very cool that

we have some big name composers who wrote for us.” Before winning the audition to join the TSO, Johanna was an active freelancer in the Boston area, where she performed with the Albany and New Hampshire Symphonies and the Boston Philharmonic, among others. Since moving to Arizona, she has performed regularly as a soloist and a recitalist and has performed many times with the Phoenix Symphony and Arizona Opera. She has appeared on two recordings and been heard in recital locally on Arizona Public Media’s Classical KUAT. In the summer, Ms. Lundy plays principal horn with the Des Moines Metro Opera. She has participated in the Lucerne Festival Academy in Switzerland under the direction of Maestro Pierre Boulez, which focuses on contemporary music. Says Johanna: “I have a strong interest in twentieth century and contemporary compositions. Some of my most favorite music comes from the last century, in the expressionistic music from the early twentieth century, to the folk and gypsy influenced music of Gyorgy Ligeti and Leos Janacek.” Johanna holds a Bachelor of Music from the Oberlin Conservatory and a Master of Music from the New England Conservatory. In 2007-08, she taught horn at the University of Arizona and has taught master classes at universities across Arizona, New Mexico and Nevada. She has been an Adjunct Professor at Pima Community College since 2010, where she teaches a classical

12 TSO

music history course and a class about American popular music. An avid pop music fan, she enjoys hip-hop, R&B, throwback styles and crossover/world music like the Boban Markovic Orchestar and Gotan Project as well as more mainstream artists like Cee Lo Green, Amy Winehouse and Muse. In addition to teaching, Johanna is currently the president of the Tucson Federation of Musicians, Tucson’s local chapter of the American Federation of Musicians. The union works to improve the lives and work of musicians in Tucson and represents the Tucson Symphony Musicians in their collective bargaining. As a member of the TSO Wind Quintet, she does extensive outreach work every season, sharing her experiences and interacting with students. She has designed and performed programs for audiences ranging in age from kindergarten to high school and adults. Outside the world of music, Johanna’s interests include gardening, cooking, reading, running and other outdoor activities. She grows arugula, chard and kale every winter.. She is in her second season playing defense on a soccer team in the Tucson Women’s Soccer League and enjoys outings with her terrier named Toby.

TSO MUSIC DIRECTOR & CONDUCTOR GEORGE HANSON As symphony and opera conductor, pianist, recording artist, television host, educator, community leader, fundraiser and passionate spokesman for the arts, George Hanson is helping shape the changing role of the modern music director. Since taking the helm at the Tucson Symphony in 1996, Hanson has raised the profile of the orchestra, establishing it as the flagship organization in Tucson’s cultural life. 2012 marks the first season of Hanson’s tenure as Artistic Director of the Sunriver Festival in Oregon. Every available ticket was sold for Hanson’s performances in Sunriver—a new milestone for the festival. Hanson’s recent and upcoming guest conducting appearances include a production of Lucia di Lammermoor at the Mecklenburg State Opera, concerts in Pforzheim and Leipzig and debut performances with the Virginia Symphony. In 2010 he joined his TSO musicians as solo pianist, conducting Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 from the keyboard. The Arizona Daily Star called it “an impressive display; Hanson played with the technical proficiency and sublime elegance of someone who does it full-time for a living,” adding, “he brought a casual playfulness, his hands gliding with ballet-like grace over the keyboard. . . taut and fluid, passionate and learned. . .” 14 TSO

Under Hanson, TSO’s first recording reached No. 2 on U.S. Classical Charts, and was lauded by critics around the globe. Stereophile Magazine praised the orchestra’s “chamber-music-like interaction” with pianist Alain Lefèvre in André Mathieu’s Piano Concerto No. 4, “a work demanding—and here receiving—utmost virtuosity and musicality.” Hanson burst onto the European scene at the age of 28, with first prizes at the Budapest International Conducting Competition and shortly thereafter at the Stokowski Competition in New York. In seven years as General Music Director of the Wuppertal Symphony and Opera in Germany, Hanson oversaw nearly 50 opera productions. He has led nearly 100 orchestras and operas, including the New York Philharmonic and Phoenix, Indianapolis and Charlotte Symphonies. Hanson has shared the stage with an extraordinary range of artists—from Lang Lang, Yo-Yo Ma and Joshua Bell to Tony Bennett and Dizzy Gillespie. His work in the recording studio with the rock group R.E.M. brought Hanson triple platinum recognition. Hanson served as assistant to Leonard Bernstein. He was Resident Conductor of the Atlanta Symphony and assisted Kurt Masur at the New York Philharmonic. He received his formal training at the Vienna Academy of Music, the Curtis Institute, Indiana University and Concordia College. George Hanson and his wife Petra reside in Tucson with their three sons—James, Max and Victor.

CHRISTOPHER ROUSE, COMPOSER Christopher Rouse is one of America’s most prominent composers of orchestral music. His works have won a Pulitzer Prize (for his Trombone Concerto) and a Grammy® Award (for Concert de Gaudí), and he has been elected to the prestigious American Academy of Arts and Letters. Rouse has created a body of work perhaps unequalled in its emotional intensity. The New York Times has called it “some of the most anguished, most memorable music around.” The Baltimore Sun has written: “When the music history of the late 20th century is written, I suspect the explosive and passionate music of Rouse will loom large.” Born in Baltimore in 1949, Mr. Rouse developed an early interest in both classical and popular music. He graduated from Oberlin Conservatory and Cornell University, numbering among his principal teachers George Crumb and Karel Husa. Mr. Rouse maintained a steady interest in popular music: at the Eastman School

16 TSO

of Music, where he was Professor of Composition until 2002, he taught a course in the history of rock for many years. Rouse is currently a member of the composition faculty at The Juilliard School. In 2012, he began his two-year tenure as Composer-in-Residence with the New York Philharmonic. While the Rouse catalog includes a number of acclaimed chamber and ensemble works, he is best known for his mastery of orchestral writing. His music has been played by every major orchestra in the U.S., and numerous ensembles overseas including the Berlin Philharmonic, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, the Sydney, Melbourne, Toronto, Vienna, London and Moscow Symphonies, the Philharmonia Orchestra, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Stockholm Philharmonic, the Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, the Orchestre de Paris, the Gulbenkian Orchestra of Lisbon, the Orchestre National de France, the Royal Scottish National Orchestra and the Orchestre Symphonique du Montreal, as well as the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the radio orchestras of Helsinki, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig, Tokyo, Austria, and Berlin.

PROGRAM NOTES Wagner’s Ring Cycle was conceived as a single story told by three epic dramas (starting with Die Walküre) prefaced by a “preliminary evening” (Das Rheingold). We might similarly conceive of this season finale’s works as a single three-part story of musical inspiration and influences prefaced by the rest of the season, which opened with a Wagner excerpt and now ends with one. Rouse saves the Nibelung

dwarf Alberich from the twilight of the gods and brings him back to us as a fantasy for percussion, and then Mahler gives us an epic first symphony, influenced by his musical hero Wagner, that was premiered just thirteen years after the first complete performance of the Ring Cycle in Bayreuth and eight years before Mahler conducted Vienna’s first complete Ring.

The Walkürenritt leitmotif upon which the Ride of the Valkyries is based was penned in 1851, and the first draft of the Ride scene was completed in 1854. Wagner did not want any of his workin-progress performed piecemeal, but at King Ludwig’s behest, Das Rheingold and Die Walküre (The Valkyrie) were performed in Munich six years before the 1876 premiere in Bayreuth. The

beginning of Act III of Die Walküre became an immediate hit; what audience could (or still can) resist the spectacle of eight Valkyries complete with armor, winged helmets, shields, and spears gathering on a mountaintop to bear fallen heroes to Valhalla, to the accompaniment of one of Wagner’s most exciting and bombastic scores? Requests poured in to give the scene separately; Wagner refused and complained bitterly when his publisher printed and sold the scene anyway, but once the Ring was presented in Bayreuth, he relented and conducted continued

One of Richard Wagner’s most interesting decisions as creator of Der Ring des Nibelungen was to leave unclear the fate of Alberich, the villainous dwarf who has set in motion the inexorable machinery of destiny, leading in the end to the apocalyptic cataclysm which concludes Götterdämmerung. … [I]t is possible with Alberich—and with many other Wagnerian villains—to recognize the inherent evil of his nature and deeds and yet still discern some measure of humanity in him and, in the process, to feel compassion for his plight. As Alberich’s whereabouts are unknown at the end of the Ring, it occurred to me that it might be engaging to return him to the stage, so to speak, so that he might wreak further havoc in what is quite literally the godless world in which Wagner has left us in the final pages of Götterdämmerung. The result was Der gerettete Alberich, whose title might best be translated as “Alberich Saved” … Rather than a concerto, Der gerettete 18 TSO

Alberich is more of a fantasy for solo percussionist and orchestra on themes of Wagner, with the soloist taking on the “role” of Alberich. Much of the musical material in the work is derived from a number of motives associated with Alberich in the Ring, among them the motives for the curse, the power of gold, the renunciation of love, annihilation, the Nibelungs, and, of course, the Ring itself. Only Wagner’s Redemption through Love motive stands beyond the ken of the other, Alberich-related motives I have used, though I have rather maliciously distorted it to suit the purposes of my “hero.” Notwithstanding the discernible tripartite structure of Der gerettete Alberich, this work is somewhat looser architecturally than other scores of mine to which I have appended the title “concerto”– hence my decision to refer to it as a “fantasy.” Having said all of the above, it would now be absurd of me to aver that this work is not programmatic; however,

TUCSON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

it is fair to say that it is not a narrative piece in the manner of, say, Strauss’ Don Quixote. Beyond a brief passage in which Alberich serves a stint as a rock drummer (probably inspired, at least in part, by the wonderfully over-the-edge Wagner Reincarnated scenes in Ken Russell’s film Lisztomania), I was not attempting to paint specific pictures in this score. However, the listener is free to provide whatever images he or she likes to the

sonic goings-on. Der gerettete Alberich was composed for percussionist Evelyn Glennie (to whom it is dedicated) and a commissioning consortium of the London Symphony Orchestra, the Cleveland Orchestra, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra.

It is less well known that Mahler was most highly regarded in his lifetime as a conductor. His earliest major posts were in Prague and Leipzig, where he began composing in his spare time, including lieder that would make their way into his first symphony, which was completed in its first five-movement 84th Season

form in 1888 in Leipzig. He moved on to the Royal Opera in Budapest, where the symphony was premiered in 1889, and then to Hamburg, where in 1893 a revised version (with the name Titan and a descriptive program) was performed as a tone poem. In 1896, one movement (Blumine) was dropped together with the Titan name and the descriptive program, and the work as we know it today was first performed in Berlin. Mahler did not start out small in this first symphony; he announces himself as the

TUCSON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA

TSO

19


composer of long symphonies for large forces and with big ideas about life, love, suffering, and death. He said that “a symphony must be like the world; it must contain everything.” For the record, Mahler did not change “Frere Jacques” to the minor mode in the third movement; he quotes the Austrian version of the round, known as Bruder Martin, which was usually sung in the minor to begin with. Mahler went on to lead the Vienna Hofoper (he converted from Judaism to Roman Catholicism to secure the post), the Vienna Philharmonic, the Metropolitan Opera and the New York Philharmonic, where he gave the American premiere of his first symphony in late 1909. Between Leipzig and New

20 TSO

York, he completed nine symphonies and a number of major song cycles with orchestra; all but the last symphony (and sketches for a tenth) were widely performed during Mahler’s lifetime, but very little other than the eighth symphony (“Symphony of a Thousand”) received critical acclaim. After Mahler’s death, his music was regularly championed by major conductors (Walter, Klemperer, Mengelberg, Britten, Copland, Stokowski, Mitropoulos, Barbirolli) but to a very mixed reception, until Leonard Bernstein’s concerts and recordings finally established a wider appreciation and respect for Mahler’s music in the early 1960s.

This arrangement opened up alternative giving methods allowing donors to establish a life income gift at the Community Foundation ultimately benefitting TSO. For more information about this opportunity contact Michael Blimes, Vice President for Philanthropy at 520-620-9168 or mblimes@tucsonsymphony.org.

Our exclusive new knee procedure will have you jumping for joy. Oro Valley Hospital is the first and only facility in Tucson to offer MAKOplastyŽ robotic-assisted knee resurfacing. This procedure is an incredible new option for those suffering from early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis. It allows the surgeon to save as much of your original knee as possible, for a more natural feeling. And, because it’s minimally invasive, many patients experience a shorter hospital stay and quicker recovery.

FREE informative seminars are offered twice a month. Space is limited. To RSVP, call 866-694-9355 or register online at OroValleyHospital.com/Knees.

"This picture of the Figueroa family celebrates the richness of family, art, culture and place, and it reminds me of the incredibly diverse cultural traditions which Arizona is so fortunate to call its own. The seriousness, strength and dignity of the women’s expressions juxtaposed with the celebratory and lyrical qualities of the musical instruments, the flowers in their hair, and the lush garden foliage beautifully capture the rich complexity of Southern Arizona."

The Royal Treatment In the car industry, the sales department rules and customer service can sometimes feel like a numbers game. At Royal Automotive Group customer service is the rule, so much so, that the sales staff does not work for commission, they work for you. From the moment one enters the showroom, the goal is not on meeting quotas, but meeting the customer and exceeding expectations. Now celebrating 35 years in Tucson, it is a point of distinction that works. Royal Automotive Group has expanded from one Buick dealership on Speedway, to five locations with two collision centers and seven dealerships across the city: Lexus of Tucson, Royal Jaguar/Land Rover, Royal Kia, Royal Buick GMC Cadillac, and opening in March, Mini of Tucson. “Our philosophy has always been to treat our customers like family” says President Paul Weitman. “The Royal “family” has grown by building one relationship at a time, from our customers to our employees. Management staff averages 18 years of tenure with our company, and it’s not unusual to meet a sales person or service tech who’s been with us for two decades or more!”

second generation continues to build upon the founding principal created by their father, with Lexus of Tucson ranked number one in the country in 2011 for service satisfaction - out of 234 dealers nationally. That same year, Royal Buick was named the national Buick Dealer of the Year, and also awarded the General Motors Mark of Excellence Award. By recently streamlining the selling process, providing customers with the lowest price for vehicles at the start, Royal Auto eliminated the often negative experience of price bargaining. Director of Marketing, Todd Helmick, sees this as an example of the company’s service continuity as it evolves in the internet age, “Today a customer can go online and shop for prices immediately and we mark our cars accordingly and stay competitive. We do our best so customers enjoy the process. It’s what drives our business.”

This is a business ethic he passed on to his own family, sons Craig and Neal. Craig is General Manager at Royal Buick GMC Cadillac and Neal is General Manager at Lexus of Tucson and Royal Jag/Land Rover. The

Canyon Ranch restores an individual’s holistic balance and reveals a world of endless possibility.
