Governor Ramsey, along with some music-loving friends, formed a club they called “The Ladies Musicale.” The first meetings were social gatherings with club members providing musical counterpoint. Concerts, lectures and study groups were soon organized, and before long the name was changed to honor composer Franz Schubert. In 1893, by adding the International Artist Series to its programs, the

remodeled and expanded in 2009, was visited by more than 12,000 people in the last year. It features both exotic and familiar musical instruments, historic keyboards, and letters from such famous composers as Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. Today, 130 years from its founding, The Schubert Club—no longer a club—has secured a prominent place among musical organizations. Its tradition of promoting the finest in musical arts continues into the twenty-first century in its concerts, education programs, and museum. The Schubert Club is thriving.

Dear friends, As we complete our 129th season and I reflect on my first six months here, I can only restate the tremendous privilege I feel to be Director of The Schubert Club. In this edition of An die Musik, we have the opportunity to look back at some of this season’s performances,

How fortunate we are to have such a broad range of supporters that it takes eight whole pages to list them. None of The Schubert Club’s activities (performances, education or museum-related programs) operate with a surplus. We are mission-driven and it is only through a combination of grants, sponsorships and donations from individuals like you that we are able to run our education programs, award prizes and keep admission to our Museum free of charge - and we remain committed to affordable ticket prices to all our concerts. Thank you for caring about The Schubert Club and showing your support so generously.

“The 22-year-old twins displayed something Tuesday that you don’t expect to find in such youthful players: An interpretive confidence that spanned a couple of centuries worth of repertoire and an infectious sense of joy in music making.” – Pioneer Press

Sunday, January 8 Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio

Tuesday, November 29 André Watts, piano

“[The Goldstein-Peled-Fiterstein Trio presented] a satisfying variety pack of music from three centuries and four instrumental combinations . . . we were treated to the thrill of a chamber music collaboration at which the artists seemed charged by the same high-voltage current.” – Pioneer Press

“Watts, at 65, still plays Liszt’s music with an agility and authority that pianists half his age would envy.” – Star Tribune

Photo: Özgür Albayrak

“His warm lyric baritone reminds one of Fischer-Dieskau, but he uses his instrument in his own unique way, with his own insights. He combines a rich, resonant lower register with a thrilling, soaring top. He filled the hall with a sound that conveyed both passion and nuance.” “Pianist Leif Ove Andsnes proved an impeccable collaborator. He combined the best qualities of an accompanist and a soloist, supporting Goerne, but creating magical effects independent of him.” – Star Tribune 8

“Fischer and pianist Milana Chernyavska demonstrated exceptional musicianship throughout the evening. But the final completed piece by a cancer-stricken Claude Debussy proved the compelling centerpiece, their performance roiling with conflicting emotions and demanding the skills of an exceptionally versatile violinist.” – Pioneer Press

Tuesday, January 10 Susan Graham, mezzo-soprano & Malcom Martineau, piano “It’s not really possible to have too much beauty in your life. That’s the lesson for anyone who chose to pass on mezzo-soprano Susan Graham’s exquisite Schubert Club recital at St. Paul’s Ordway Center Tuesday night.” – Pioneer Press

Monday, February 6 Accordo

Tuesday, March 13 Menahem Pressler, piano Colloquium - A Life of Music “Pressler showed that describing him as a chamber music master is far too limiting. He’s a superb musician, an intrepid explorer of emotional landscapes, one who conveys a deep understanding of the many layers within whatever work he plays.” – Pioneer Press

“The six instrumentalists produced a rich, resonant sound, but were also capable of moments of refined delicacy.” – Star Tribune

The Schubert Club Museum Hours: Sunday – Friday • Noon – 4:00 PM Landmark Center Letter from Tchaikovsky, 1877

Schubert Club Museum manager Jason Kudrna mentioned to researcher Brett Langston at the Tchaikovsky website that the Museum had a second Tchaikovsky letter. That one too proved to be previously unknown to scholars. Both letters have now been published, with English translations, transcriptions of Tchaikovsky’ s original French, digital images of the letters, and background essays at with the catalog numbers 0534a and 4749a. The Museum hopes, in time, to make digital images of all its manuscripts available on The Schubert Club’s website to

Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840-1893)

When The Schubert Club opened its renovated Museum in late 2009, the twelve composer letters newly displayed in

scholars and enthusiasts worldwide.

French conductor Édouard Colonne (1838-1910)

the manuscript gallery also went online in digital format at Among the letters was one in French from Tchaikovsky to an unnamed conductor about a proposed concert of the composer’s music. Shortly thereafter museum staff received an email from, an internet collaboration of scholars dedicated to making information about the life and works of the great Russian composer more widely accessible. Among other endeavors, they have published the more than 5200 letters Tchaikovsky is known to have written. The Schubert Club’s letter, it seems, was previously unknown to the scholarly community! Researchers there identified the recipient, French conductor and impressario Édouard Colonne, as well as providing context for the letter, and a correct date—1877. Tchaikovsky’s rather wild penmanship had made the year look like it might be 1891. Based on that erroneous date, museum staff had thought the letter might relate to the composer’s Carnegie Hall concert on his only visit to America. But other correspondence already published made it clear that our letter was in reference to a Paris concert. Colonne eventually premiered Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 4 in the French capital the following year.



Letter to Édouard Colonne, 1877, one of two Tchaikovsky letters given to The Schubert Club by Gilman Ordway.

“It goes without saying that my compositions gain enormously in being conducted by you.”

Moscow. 11 January 1877 Monsieur! Allow me to thank you sincerely for the kind letter which you have done me the honour of sending to me. I am immensely happy and proud of the extreme forbearance with which you have deigned to promise me your invaluable participation in the planned concert. I have written, as you advised me, to Mr Giacomelli regarding the organization of this concert, and as soon as I have his reply I shall write to you in detail about the date of the concert, the number of musicians I need, the programme etc. It goes without saying that my compositions gain enormously in being conducted by you. I say this not to give you an idle compliment but in the profound and firm conviction that I do not have the talent nor the necessary know-how to conduct an orchestra so experienced and unknown to me as yours in a manner worthy of it.

Letter from Tchaikovsky, 1877, photographed by Minnesota artist Natasha D’Schommer for The Schubert Club’s book. To Music published in November 2011.

But you yourself, Sir, will you tell me quite frankly if it would tire you too greatly to have to rehearse and direct the concert. I would consider myself most happy if you would assume this task yourself, but in any case, I shall comply absolutely with whatever you shall advise me to do. Please accept the expression of my profound respect. Allow me to thank you cordially for all your kindness, and to beg you to accept this expression of the highest esteem felt for you devotedly by P. I. Tchaikovsky

To Music: The Schubert Club Museum. Photographs by Natasha D’Schommer Thanks to the generosity of William and Judith Scheide and the Scheide Fund, The Schubert Club has published a beautiful book by Minneapolis photographer Natasha D’ Schommer, To Music. Visitors to The Schubert Club Museum know D’Schommer’s work from the mural-sized enlargements that grace the gallery walls. D’Schommer’s artistry elegantly reveals intimate details of fascinating objects in the Museum’s collection: antique keyboards, instruments from around the world and manuscripts from the Museum’s Gilman Ordway Manuscript Collection. Published in November 2011, the book contains more than seventy of D’Schommer’s arresting images in full color. More information about the book (and how to purchase it) can be found at D’Schommer’s earlier book Biblio featured images of rare books and manuscripts at the Princeton University Library. She was asked by the University of Minnesota to turn her artist’s eye to the James Ford Bell Library where she is currently in the midst of a multi-year project photographing seventeenth-century books and maps.

About the Composer Mentorship Program: Each spring, talented high-school student composers in the greater Twin Cities area are selected to work with The Schubert Club’s composer-in-residence Edie Hill for the academic year. The mentorship involves individual composition lessons, as well as opportunities for the group to work together as a whole.

Congratulations to this year’s apprentices! Austin Frohmader • Grant Luhmann • Christopher Neiner • Dylan Perese The mentorship program is offered free of charge to each selected composer and is sponsored in part by HRK Foundation.

Founded in Albuquerque in 2007, The Copper Street

Brass Quintet

set up shop in Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2008 where, through their inventive concerts, engaging classroom programs, and a host of original arrangements, they’ve transcended the brass quintet box and evolved into something fresh. As devoted educators, the group spends much of its time in local schools sharing their energy and passion with students from kindergarten to college. The group has recorded three albums and has been featured on Minnesota Public Radio, KARE 11 news and Montana Today. Their two newest albums, “Christmas on Copper Street” and “The Evolution of the Brass Quintet” feature all-new recordings of everything from Tchaikovsky’s “Nutcracker Suite” to Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin.”

130th Anniversary Concert

Jessye Norman, soprano April 30, 2013 • 7:30 PM Ordway Center

In celebration of its 130th anniversary, The Schubert Club presents a recital by one of the great vocal artists of our day, American soprano Jessye Norman. The New York Times has called MIss Norman “one of those once-in-a-generation singers who is not simply following in the footsteps of others, but is staking out her own niche in the history of singing.” Miss Norman’s contributions to this rich history continue as she shares her sumptuous sound, her joy and her passion with audiences around the world–in recital performances and appearances with symphony orchestras and chamber music collaborators. The size, power, and luster of her voice deserve equal acclaim with her thoughtful music-making, innovative programming of the classics, and fervent advocacy of contemporary music. Known as a dramatic soprano par excellence since her debut as Elisabeth in Tannhaüser at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin, Miss Norman also earns accolades for her recitals. In the words of Fiona Maddocks of The Independent, “A pattern can be detected in most Jessye Norman concerts. In the first half, with her voice still warming up, pleasure is tempered with a slight anxiety that perhaps she will not prove as exciting as you thought. In the second, some strange alchemy occurs, not simply explained by the fact that the program is structured to reach a climax, as any solo recital would. By the end, quite apart from any emotional uplift, you leave with a sense of having been physically overwhelmed.” Miss Norman has appeared three times before in recitals on The Schubert Club’s International Artist Series. It is a delight to bring her once again to Ordway Center for this special celebratory anniversary concert.

An exploration of Social Media draws the Next Generation of Arts Patrons Matt Zumwalt, Schubert Club Board Member

As The Schubert Club waltzes into its 130th anniversary, it could be content to function as a stuffy, conservative grandmarm to the cities’ performing arts world. I find it delightful and instructive to see the organization pass that option over. A wise friend pointed out that “An organization doesn’t last 130 years by chasing fads, but it also can’t survive by ignoring change.” In order to survive, it must remain responsive. The Schubert Club seems to live by that ethos. The staff of The Schubert Club are bright, skillful and enthusiastic people. They have fresh perspectives and they’re led by a new Executive Director who has no shortage of insightful ideas. This organization is vivacious. It’s in this environment that The Schubert Club has launched the Theoroi project, a novel initiative aimed at harnessing social media to cultivate a community of young arts patrons. On the evening of Susan Graham’s performance at the Ordway this January, twenty five young professionals and artists stood in the foyer speculating about where their seats would be, discussing the previous show they’d seen together a month earlier, and generally catching up. They dominated the space in front of the bar with an air of eminent confidence and comfort. Who were they? They were too confident in the space to be a random outing of friends, and too cohesive to be a spontaneous gathering of ticket holders. Some of my fellow board members stopped by saying “These must be the Theoroi.” The Schubert Club’s Theoroi project ( invites twenty five people each year, all in their twenties and thirties, to serve as “ambassadors of the arts” who attend a ten-month series of performances around the Twin Cities and post online about their experiences. Susan Graham’s International Artist Series performance was the participants’ third show at the Ordway in four months. Their previous Ordway experiences were the Minnesota Opera’s Così fan Tutte in October and the Ordway’s presentation of Vox Lumiere in November. Other performances in the season include shows presented by the Guthrie, Dakota Jazz Club, St Paul Chamber Orchestra and Jungle Theater. The full season is posted on the project’s website. Though we initially conceived Theoroi as a playful exploration of social media and community engagement, the project has quickly taken on a broader, richer tone. I now tell people that we’re training the next generation of arts patrons, which invariably draws the query “What do you mean by a patron?”



I’ve learned that some people think of arts patronage primarily in terms of financial support while others define patronage in terms of engagement, enthusiasm, and participation. With Theoroi, we are seeking to feed a whole culture of arts patronage, one where people of many ages attend performances, have opinions about them, and express those opinions in a public forum. I think that a thriving arts culture is one where people arrive at performances wondering what familiar faces they will see in the audience, and speculating about what the evening’s experience will bring. After the performance, they should walk out with opinions on their tongues, the confidence to express them and a curiosity about the opinions of others. If you have those things, then you have the basis for a culture of patronage–one where audiences are engaged, arts organizations are responsive, and the community feels compelled to sustain those organizations. With each year of the project, Theoroi adds fresh voices to the mix while growing the overall network of connected, informed, vocal ambassadors. This summer we will invite twenty five new participants for the 2012-2013 season. Meanwhile the participants from 2011-2012 are enthusiastic about remaining involved. Even with fifty people, this project could have lasting positive impact. Network effects will compound those benefits with every additional year. Thirty years from now, how many Theoroi graduates will be gathering in the foyer of the Ordway? How long will they have known each other, how long will they have thought of themselves as arts patrons, and how many different ways will they be contributing to the vitality of arts in our cities?

The Theoroi project is made possible with financial support from Knight Foundation.
