EDWARD ELGAR
Serenade in E minor for String Orchestra, Op. 20
(1892)
Approximate duration:
12 minutes

For 200 years following Henry Purcell’s death in 1695, the most significant music created in England was the work of foreigners, including Handel, J.C. Bach and Haydn. The man who broke England’s dry spell was an unlikely candidate—the son of a piano tuner, Catholic in a Protestant country and untrained in music except for some violin lessons as a teenager. Edward Elgar gained international recognition with his intriguing Enigma Variations in 1899, and he helped forge a distinctly British sound in the waning years of the Romantic era.

That signature score that made Elgar famous in his 40s was built off of the hard work of his journeyman years, including a period when he supported his family by teaching and conducting in Malvern, a sleepy spa town. It was there that Elgar composed his Serenade for Strings in E minor in 1892, incorporating some material from an earlier work he had abandoned. The Serenade title evoked those quintessential pieces of night music that Mozart wrote to entertain his Austrian patrons, and the genre retained its emphasis on breezy pleasure even as it morphed from glorified background music for outdoor parties to a staple of the 19th-century concert hall with sterling examples by Dvořák and Tchaikovsky. Given his career profile at the time, Elgar had to settle for a modest debut for his Serenade when he conducted a private reading by his students in the Worcester Ladies’ Orchestral Class. It only reached the British public for the first time in 1899, Elgar’s breakout year.

A nimble rhythmic figure ushers in the dance-like first movement, set in a flowing meter that maintains its thrumming pulse under a series of elegant melodies. After a central Larghetto movement featuring one of Elgar’s most tender melodies, the finale rounds out this slim Serenade with more dancing music, including a closing reference to the first movement’s bouncing rhythm.

 

FRANZ SCHUBERT
Quintet in A major for Piano and Strings, D. 667, “The Trout”
(1819)
Approximate duration:
35 minutes

When Franz Schubert turned 20 in 1817, he had not yet seen his music published, mentioned in a newspaper or performed publicly a single time, even though he had already composed some 300 songs (half of his lifetime output) and a large body of orchestral and chamber music. That year he wrote one of his most memorable songs, “The Trout,” which transports the listener to a babbling brook from the very first notes of the piano accompaniment. In a later stanza, minor-key music and thicker textures capture the muddied waters and the spectator’s “raging blood” at seeing the fish hooked. With its earworm of a melody and an uncanny sense of drama for such a simple little tale, “The Trout” has always been a favorite within Schubert’s incomparable songbook.

Schubert had occasion to revisit “The Trout” in 1819. While traveling in upper Austria that summer, he met Sylvester Paumgartner, a friend-of-a-friend and an amateur cellist, who asked for a new quintet. Paumgartner specified the instrumentation of violin, viola, cello, double bass and piano, a format favored by Hummel and other composers before Schubert. (The more familiar quintet of two violins, viola, cello and piano caught on later, starting with Schumann.) Paumgartner specifically requested a theme and variations movement based on “The Trout,” a testament to the song’s instant appeal.

The “Trout” Quintet offers many pleasures beyond its signature movement. The opening Allegro vivace plays with a rising arpeggio gesture that interjects and comments around the singing themes, setting up the same kind of active discourse between melody and accompaniment found in so many of Schubert’s songs. (The rising arpeggios also foreshadow the “Trout” music still to come.)

The fourth movement jumps straight into the “Trout” theme, outlined by the strings in a simple Andantino treatment. The piano’s sparkling octaves and trills add an element of kinetic motion, and the variations continue to intensify the rhythmic and harmonic elements at play. The variation closest in character to the original song comes last, with the telltale rippling patterns shared between the piano and the strings. Related gestures continue to arise in the enigmatic finale, unifying this very grand quintet around ideas that began with one little fish.

 

ARNOLD SCHOENBERG
Transfigured Night, Op. 4
(1899; 1943 string orchestra version)
Approximate duration:
30 minutes

Before Arnold Schoenberg became the teacher and trendsetter at the center of the “Second Viennese School” of composers who explored the wilds of atonality, he was a self-taught amateur steeped in the luxurious Romanticism of Liszt and Strauss. The closest he came to having a composition teacher was through his friendship with Alexander von Zemlinsky, and it was during their vacation together in 1899 that Transfigured Night emerged from three swift weeks of work.

Schoenberg’s great innovation in Transfigured Night was to apply the idea of program music, as found in the tone poems of Liszt and Strauss, to a chamber ensemble. Schoenberg’s original scoring for two violins, two violas and two cellos matched a format pioneered by Brahms, in whose hands the string sextet became a vehicle for pure chamber music with a Classical orientation. Instead of the usual abstract movements, Schoenberg created one continuous score in five sections, following the shape of the poem Verklärte Nacht (Transfigured Night) by Richard Dehmel, about a forlorn couple that, while walking on a moonlit night, works through the revelation that her pregnancy resulted from an affair. 

The musical storytelling relies on the skillful manipulation of tonal harmony over the course of one long journey from minor to major. Supported by a nervous drone, the first section sets the course by plodding down the minor scale in lopsided, dotted rhythms. This stepping pattern becomes a familiar point of reference, returning in different forms to remind us of the couple and their fateful walk together.

The second section, beginning with an unexpected major chord, correlates to the second stanza of the poem, in which the woman “confesses that she is bearing the child of another man.” The music becomes agitated, smeared with rising chromatics, until the third section intervenes with music of a simpler and more somber character, linked to the section of the poem in which “she staggers onward.”

The third section ends on a minor chord, setting up the crucial moment: With a decisive pivot to a major chord, a cello melody gives voice to the man’s wish that his companion should “not burden her soul with thoughts of guilt.” A lustrous violin solo brightens the night, just as “the moon’s sheen enwraps the universe.”

The final section forms a tranquil coda in D major, basking in love’s warmth that “will transfigure the little stranger.” The stepping theme returns with new optimism, and shimmering arpeggios offer a parting view of “wondrous moonlight.”

 

FRANZ JOSEPH HAYDN
Symphony No. 59 in A major, Hob.I:59, “Fire”
(1768)
Approximate duration: 25 minutes

Franz Joseph Haydn trained at a prestigious choir school in Vienna until his voice broke at 17. He spent the next 12 years teaching kids and later working for a count of modest means, until at 29 he landed the job that set him on the course to become the most famous composer in the world. In 1761 he joined the fabulously wealthy Esterházy family as their Vice-Kapellmeister, followed by a promotion five years later to Kapellmeister. Initially he was responsible for producing two concerts each week with the court’s private orchestra, and in later years his duties grew to include writing and producing operas. He spent months on end cloistered at the family’s remote summer palace, providing entertainment for the insatiable Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, a pressure-cooker environment in which, as Haydn later wrote, “I was forced to become original.”

One new direction Haydn explored in the late 1760s and early 1770s was the Sturm und Drang (“Storm and Stress”) aesthetic that was also cropping up in the theater, literature and artwork of the time. This tendency toward heightened emotion and drama tends to be associated with Haydn’s music in minor keys, but the same extremes of expression fueled major-key symphonies as well, including the Symphony known by the nickname “Fire,” composed around 1768.

The Symphony No. 59 is fiery indeed, especially in the unusually speedy Presto first movement punctuated by shuddering bow strokes from the violins and forte blasts from the horns. The slow movement’s key setting of A-minor brings an unexpected chill to the atmosphere, and the Minuet reinforces the dichotomy of major and minor keys. The finale, heralded by horns and oboes, bristles with the manic energy of a hunt.

MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT

Howard Herring

In Debra Spar’s excellent book, Ruling the Waves: From the Compass to the Internet, she describes the forces that revolutionized information distribution. Messaging, sent via sight or sound, was first explored by the Greeks and again in the Middle Ages. The precursor to the telegraph was created by Claude and René Chappe in 1791 – copper pots and synchronized clocks were involved. But it wasn’t until 1831 that Samuel Morse combined his code with electronic transmission, creating the telegraph. Since then, we have tumbled over ourselves, inventing more robust electronic systems to share our expressions across ever more expansive networks.

The advent of a new distribution system, for example radio or television, always sets off a revolution. The pace of change is challenging, but we manage. Combined forces of digital distribution and a pandemic is another thing altogether. Fellows, our institution and the entire global community, all of us, are exhilarated and terrified. In that context, here is our plan for this season.

In the last full pre-pandemic New World academic season, 2018-19, the Fellows brought you 70 live performances and 12 WALLCAST® concerts, plus two major webcasts. Slowly but surely, online teaching continued to gain prominence in our coaching program. All living composers joined rehearsals of their music either in person or via the internet. We were moving toward the wired world. With the pandemic shutdown, we used our technological infrastructure to move entirely online. Major artists coaching our Fellows and Fellows coaching talented younger players combined for thousands of hours of teaching time. Fellows were featured performers in and, in some cases, producers of 77 unique concert streams, preserving the rehearsal/performance sequence that is at the heart of our experiential curriculum. Now, we begin again, in hybrid form. You will hear the Fellows in the performance hall and in WALLCAST® concerts in SoundScape Park.  And…you will encounter online programming that enhances those live performances or stands as independent musical expression. Two radically different distribution systems, each with its own structure, sensibility and audience expectations. This is an experiment. You are essential to its success. You must share your reactions with us, tell us about the intrinsic value of the music making – in the hall and on the internet. Explore the interactive possibilities of the online expression. Help us expand our audiences using the astonishing access of digital platforms. We are counting on you. Together, we will honor the past and shape the future of this remarkable art form.

Sincerely yours,

Howard Herring
NWS President and Chief Executive Officer

MESSAGE FROM THE BOARD CHAIR

William M. Osborne

Welcome Back!  After a hiatus of over 18 months, we are so delighted to see you back at the New World Center.  

While we are anxious to return to pre-2020 audience experiences, we will be following the science carefully as this pandemic ebbs and flows. Since this began, we have instigated strict protocols and capital improvements, including certification of our hospital-grade ventilation systems. We anticipate a fully vaccinated fellowship, and all employees are vaccinated. Our masking and testing requirements will prevent putting anyone in the New World Symphony family, including our audience, at avoidable risk.  

What this pandemic has done is to force us to pivot to new and creative ways to share our music, and what has emerged is a New World Symphony that is stronger than ever. Led by the creative vision of our artistic director and founder Michael Tilson Thomas, NWS Fellows have jumped into the digital world, with 77 online concert streams, with more than 25,000 views over the past 18 months. Our WALLCAST® concerts enabled socially distanced outdoor seating and we utilized our substantial library of archived performances to present outdoor music when everything else seemed to be shut down. This has led us to consider a greater and more accessible use of WALLCAST® concert technology to bring our music to the streets, an initiative about which you will hear more later this year.  

Our world has also gone through a heightened level of civil strife and discord. As musicians, NWS Fellows have an opportunity to bring people and communities together with the healing power of music. We have concert series, which I hope you will explore, where we feature a broader mix of composers than ever before. This will make for a much richer audience experience as we highlight those composers whose voices have been overlooked for much too long. And our guest conductors and soloists this season will be as outstanding as ever, representing the broadest brush of our community and bringing a diversity of voices that will find a willing audience in our wonderfully multi-cultural South Florida.  

I would like to close by thanking our staff for their steadfastness in the face of these unparalleled times. They have shown their devotion to the organization by working harder to come up with new and innovative ways to bring our music to our audience when our Hall is dark. And finally, thank you to our Fellows, who never lost hope, and who will be showing you their dedication when you hear them today. Now, at long last, let’s get on with the show. 

Sincerely,

William M. Osborne, III
NWS Board Chair

In addition to these posts, he maintains an active presence guest conducting with the major orchestras of Europe and the United States.

Born in Los Angeles, Mr. Tilson Thomas is the third generation of his family to follow an artistic career. His grandparents, Boris and Bessie Thomashefsky, were founding members of the Yiddish Theater in America. His father, Ted Thomas, was a producer in the Mercury Theater Company in New York before moving to Los Angeles where he worked in films and television. His mother, Roberta Thomas, was the head of research for Columbia Pictures.

Mr. Tilson Thomas began his formal studies at the University of Southern California, where he studied piano with John Crown, and conducting and composition with Ingolf Dahl. At age 19 he was named Music Director of the Young Musicians Foundation Debut Orchestra. During this same period, he was the pianist and conductor in master classes of Gregor Piatigorsky and Jascha Heifetz and worked with Stravinsky, Boulez, Stockhausen and Copland on premieres of their compositions at Los Angeles’ Monday Evening Concerts.

In 1969, after winning the Koussevitzky Prize at Tanglewood, he was appointed Assistant Conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra. That year he also made his New York debut with the Boston Symphony and gained international recognition after replacing Music Director William Steinberg in mid-concert. He was later appointed Principal Guest Conductor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra where he remained until 1974. He was Music Director of the Buffalo Philharmonic from 1971 to 1979 and a Principal Guest Conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic from 1981 to 1985. His guest conducting includes appearances with the major orchestras of Europe and the United States.

Mr. Tilson Thomas is a two-time Carnegie Hall Perspectives artist, curating and conducting series at the hall from 2003 to 2005 and from 2018 to 2019.

He received a Peabody Award for his SFS Media radio series The MTT Files.

Mr. Tilson Thomas’s compositions are published by G. Schirmer. In 1991, he and the New World Symphony were presented in a series of benefit concerts for UNICEF in the United States, featuring Audrey Hepburn as narrator of his work From the Diary of Anne Frank, which was commissioned by UNICEF. This piece has since been translated and performed in many languages worldwide. In August 1995, he led the Pacific Music Festival Orchestra in the premiere of his composition Shówa/Shoáh, commemorating the 50th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima. His vocal music includes settings of poetry by Walt Whitman and Emily Dickinson, which were premiered by Thomas Hampson and Renée Fleming, respectively. In 2016, Yuja Wang premiered his piano piece You Come Here Often?.

Mr. Tilson Thomas' song cycle Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind, a setting of Carl Sandburg’s poem, was premiered in 2016 by the New World Symphony, with Measha Brueggergosman as soloist. In 2019 the piece was recorded for Medici.tv at the New World Center and given its New York premiere as part of Mr. Tilson Thomas’s second Carnegie Hall Perspectives series. His first Perspectives series also featured performances of his own compositions, including Island Music for four marimbas and percussion; Notturno for solo flute and strings, featuring soloist Paula Robison; and new settings of poems by Rainer Maria Rilke. In 2020, he led the San Francisco Symphony in the world premiere of his six-part song cycle Meditations on Rilke, and he subsequently conducted the work at the Cleveland Orchestra. Additional compositions include Street Song for brass instruments; Agnegram, an overture for orchestra; and Urban Legend, a concerto for contrabassoon that was premiered by the San Francisco Symphony. In June 2020, SFS Media released an album of works composed by Mr. Tilson Thomas, featuring live concert recordings of From the Diary of Anne Frank, narrated by mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, and Meditations on Rilke, sung by mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke and bass-baritone Ryan McKinny.

The Legacy Society

The Legacy Society recognizes those individuals who have included the New World Symphony in their estate planning.  An estate gift is much more than a financial decision. It's a personal statement about who you are, what you care about, and what your legacy will be.  NWS is pleased to honor those who have made this important step.

New World Symphonty is pleased to partner with FreeWill in their mission to help people plan for the future while doing the most good for the people and causes they care about. Make your most powerful gift yet, without paying a cent today.
