Program Notes

by Benjamin Pesetsky

Benjamin

Britten

Thomas Adès

Dmitri Shostakovich

Thomas Adès, Benjamin Britten, and Dmitri Shostakovich

were all under the age of 30 when they wrote the pieces on today’s program. Adès’s

opera, Powder Her Face, and Shostakovich’s Symphony No.1 launched their composers

to fame, receiving international performances soon after their premieres. Britten’s Violin

Concerto has burned its way into the repertoire more slowly, increasingly recognized

for its subtlety and beauty.

There are also personal, professional, and aesthetic connections between these three

composers. In the 1960s, Britten and Shostakovich became friends, connected by their

mutual collaborator, the cellist Mstislav Rostropovich. Though two generations younger,

Adès, an Englishman, was artistic director of the Aldeburgh Festival, which Britten

founded in 1948.

All three works show a concern for public relevance, belying the narrative that

20th-century classical music invariably drifted toward academic obscurity. Here is a

strand of complex musical artistry, attuned to audience understanding, running from

1926 to the present day.

12


Program Notes

Thomas Adès

Born March 1, 1971, London

Powder Her Face Suite

Powder Her Face is Thomas Adès’s 1995

chamber opera, based on Margaret

Campbell, Duchess of Argyll, whose reallife

1963 divorce created a sensational sex

scandal in England. Her husband accused

her of infidelity, introducing a set of stolen

Polaroid photos as evidence in court. Later

in life, she squandered her inheritance

and ended up living in a hotel suite. This is

where the opera finds her, as she slips into

the past, conjuring scenes set in the 1930s

through ‘70s.

Both the 24-year-old Adès and his

librettist, Philip Hensher, were drawn to the

tabloid tale when they were commissioned

by London’s Almeida Opera in the mid-

1990s. “The Almeida didn’t disguise their

complete bewilderment at what we were

proposing,” Hensher told The Guardian in

2008. “The director of opera said he had no

idea what I meant when I said I wanted it to

seem like scenes from the life of a medieval

saint, only with shopping expeditions

instead of miracles.” The opera was met

with a mix of outrage and admiration—and

is now one of the most frequently produced

operas of the late 20th century.

In 2007, Adès extracted three orchestral

numbers from the opera and published

them as Dances from Powder Her Face.

Since the original score used a 15-piece

pit band, he rescored the music for full

orchestra. For the 2017 Powder Her Face

Suite performed on today’s program,

he added five more movements, now

including some vocal writing transcribed

for purely instrumental forces. The

expanded suite was co-commissioned

by the Berlin Philharmonic, the Danish

National Symphony Orchestra, the London

Philharmonic Orchestra, the Philadelphia

Orchestra, Carnegie Hall, and the St.

Louis Symphony Orchestra. The Berlin

Philharmonic and Simon Rattle premiered

it in May 2017.

Scene with Song comes from the

opera’s opening, where a maid and an

electrician fool around in the Duchess’s

hotel room, laughing and mocking the old

woman behind her back. Wedding March,

Waltz, and Ode call back to her earlier

life, and draw on the popular dance styles

of the time. Paperchase finds the Duke

searching for incriminating evidence. In the

libretto’s stage directions, “he goes over to

the trunk and starts pulling out clothes and

letters. Papers scatter everywhere, on the

floor, on the bed … finally in the last drawer,

13


he finds a camera. He rips it open and pulls

out the film.” Hotel Manager’s Aria and

Finale return to the end of the Duchess’s

life, when she is evicted from the hotel. The

Manager, originally sung by a bass, and

here portrayed by the horn, is an avatar of

death.

Scoring:

3 flutes (3rd doubling piccolo), 3 oboes,

3 clarinets (1st, 2nd, and 3rd doubling

bass clarinets), 3 bassoons (3rd doubling

Benjamin Britten

Born November 22, 1913, Lowestoft,

United Kingdom

Died December 4, 1976, Aldeburgh,

United Kingdom

Violin Concerto, Op.15

Britten is so closely associated with his

native England that it may be hard to

imagine that for a few years at the beginning

of the Second World War he emigrated to

the United States—and might have stayed,

had he not grown homesick by 1942. But

it was an important three-year detour: his

relationship with his traveling companion,

Peter Pears, grew from an ambiguous

friendship into affirmed romance. He found

critical success in New York, and then

drove across the continent with Pears in a

borrowed Ford, arriving to stay with friends

in Escondido, California. It was in a Southern

California bookshop in 1941 that he picked

up a collection by the 19th-century English

poet George Crabbe, which made him

nostalgic for his coastal home in Suffolk and

inspired his 1945 opera, Peter Grimes.

Britten’s American journey was

motivated by his commitment to pacifism

in the face of war in Europe. He began the

Violin Concerto in England and completed it

in Quebec during the summer of 1939, just

before he and Pears settled temporarily

in New York. The piece feels more of its

time than of a particular place: it’s serious

and uneasy, with lyrical surfaces built on a

dangerously unstable foundation.

14


Britten creates this impression through

harmony: from the start, he undermines

the clarity of the key. The opening violin

melody starts in F major, but by the third

measure drifts toward F minor, then falls

a woozy half step toward F-flat, before

recovering back up—all while tracing the

contour of a much more conventional tune.

This is just one example of this concerto’s

tonal ambiguities, which crop up on both

small and large scales.

The first movement’s second theme is

bold and belligerent, yet also lighthearted,

perhaps mocking military pomp. Later, in what

might be the concerto’s most breathtaking

moment, the orchestral strings take up the

opening violin melody—now hushed, muted,

and elongated—while the soloist picks up the

original orchestral accompaniment (mixed

with the restless second theme) in sharp

accents, plucking, and strumming.

Though the concerto’s three movements

are linked together without pause, the

beginning of the second movement is clear

from its instant rambunctiousness. But the

movement also holds periods of stasis, which

grow into surprising colors. One passage

finds the violin in its highest range, whistling

almost pitchlessly. Then it hands the effect

over to two piccolos before the tuba enters,

six octaves below, creating a harrowing

chasm of range. The movement ends with a

cadenza, which plays with material from both

the first and second movements.

With an echo of the concerto’s opening

theme, the cadenza bridges into the finale.

The trombones enter down low with a

phrase that will be repeated—sometimes

boldly and sometimes subtly—throughout

the movement. This is the passacaglia, an

idea Britten borrowed from Baroque music,

where a whole piece is built over a repeated

ground bass. Britten, however, weakens the

form’s usual stability with another harmonic

trick: The first four entrances each shift

down a half step—almost imperceptible

to the listener, but enough to maintain the

concerto’s deep-seated unease. Toward

the end of the movement, a newfound

brightness starts to shine through. In the

final measures, the concerto coalesces

around the key of D, shedding most of its

harmonic complications, while still wavering

between sweet major and bitter minor.

The New York Times review of the

March 1940 premiere (at Carnegie Hall

with the New York Philharmonic and

violinist Antonio Brosa) noted, “the ending

is uncommon, very earnest and far from

the conventional ‘hoopla’ finale.” The writer

also struck a note of praiseful restraint,

observing “there is more in this interesting

work than was to be fully grasped or finally

assessed at first hearing.”

Scoring: 3 flutes (2nd and 3rd doubling

piccolo), 2 oboes (2nd doubling English

horn), 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns,

3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani,

percussion (snare drum, suspended cymbal,

triangle, cymbals, glockenspiel, bass drum,

tenor drum), harp, and strings

Performance Time:

approximately 32 minutes

Dmitri

Shostakovich

Born November 25, 1906, Saint Petersburg

Died August 9, 1975, Moscow

Symphony No.1 in F minor, Op.10

In the mid-1920s, a decade before

Shostakovich was denounced by Stalin and

made to fear for his life, his troubles were

simply those of a student: not enough money,

conflicts with teachers, and shaky confidence

in his own work. He held evening jobs playing

piano in cinemas, which he detested, while

studying at the Leningrad Conservatory.

Shostakovich began his Symphony

No.1 as a conservatory assignment, and

it became his graduation piece. At first he

was dismissive, writing in October 1924,

“Now I’m writing a symphony … which is

quite bad, but I have to write it so that I

can be done with the conservatory this

year.” He grew more invested in the project

and defended it from the criticism of his

teacher, Maximilian Steinberg, who thought

its drafts were excessively grotesque. By

May of 1925, Shostakovich completed a

two-piano version of the symphony, which

he played for his teachers as a final exam.

He passed, and was pleased with his work,

but could not have expected it would soon

bring him international fame.

The public premiere of the complete,

orchestrated symphony came a year

later, in May 1926, with the Leningrad

Philharmonic, on a special concert

presented by the Leningrad Association for

Contemporary Music. It was an immediate

success, pleasing both the composer and

the public. It also established Shostakovich

as an emblematic Soviet composer, fit for

export abroad.

In January 1927, Shostakovich met the

conductor Bruno Walter in Leningrad and

played his new symphony on the piano for

him. Walter was impressed and promised

to perform the piece in Germany with the

Berlin Philharmonic. Shostakovich attended

the concert the following spring, traveling

at the expense of the Soviet government,

though he chose to sit anonymously in the

hall, unacknowledged.

From Europe, the piece spread to the

United States, where it was premiered by

the Philadelphia Orchestra under Leopold

Stokowski in 1928 (five years before the

United States and the Soviet Union would

establish diplomatic relations). It was

first taken up by the St. Louis Symphony

Orchestra in 1939, under the direction

of the Mexican composer and conductor

Carlos Chávez.

Shostakovich’s aunt, Nadezhda, had

emigrated to America, where she heard a

performance of her nephew’s symphony.

She later told a biographer that she

recognized themes from his childhood

piano improvisations and early, now-lost

compositions. The final two movements

are tenuously linked to Hans Christian

Andersen’s “The Little Mermaid”—a story

which interested Shostakovich and inspired

sketches for a ballet he left incomplete.

Under one interpretation, the dramatic

snare drum roll linking the third and fourth

movements of the symphony represents the

mermaid’s transition from the underwater

world to the land of human beings.

16


Whatever the sources, there is an

unmistakable collage quality to the First

Symphony. And it’s very plausible that—

like many young artists—Shostakovich drew

from adolescent sketches to complete

his first largescale work. The process of

revisiting and reworking is part of what

gives a composer a distinctive voice, and

already in the Symphony No.1, you can hear

the recognizable voice of Shostakovich. It is

not as harrowed as his later works, and its

sarcastic edges gleam with acerbity more

than grim irony. But it’s this youthful voice

that first made an impression on listeners

around the globe, who had never before

heard of Shostakovich, and had no idea of

his later (now nearly mythologized) torment.

The symphony is also striking for its

creative orchestration, sometimes surprisingly

thin, verging on chamber music.

Exposed solos pop from bare textures,

with especially prominent roles for the

concertmaster, principal cello, and piano. The

first two movements, Allegretto and Allegro

(also called a scherzo in Shostakovich’s

notes)—are lean, brisk, and satirical. The

expressive weight of the symphony rests

on the third and fourth movements. In them

you can hear a premonition of the later

symphonies in his towering output.

Scoring: 3 flutes (2nd and 3rd doubling

piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons,

4 horns, 2 trumpets, alto trumpet,

3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion

(bass drum, cymbals, glockenspiel, snare

drum, tam-tam, triangle), piano, and strings

Performance Time:

approximately 28 minutes

Presenting the world’s finest classical artists since 1919

“I think too often

people think of the

arts as decoration to

the experiences of life,

sort of a frosting on

the cake. But to me,

the arts are essential

to understanding the

problems of life, and to

helping us get through

the experiences of life

with intelligent understanding

and grace.”

Philanthropist and

CAMA Friend

Robert M. Light

YOU Ensure

the Tradition

Your generosity through planned giving secures

CAMA ENDOWMENT: A Sound Investment

YOU ensure that great music and world-class artists

continue to grace Santa Barbara stages for decades to come.

Endowment funds are needed to bridge the gap between ticket sales

and steadily rising artist fees and concert production costs. Funds are also

needed to sustain CAMA’s outstanding music education programs.

MOZART SOCIETY

Our CAMA community members who contribute a cash gift to the endowment of $10,000

or more enjoy many benefits of The Mozart Society, including participation in our annual

black-tie dinner.

LEGACY SOCIETY

Our CAMA community members who have included CAMA in their will or estate plan

belong to the Legacy Society. Legacy Society members participate in the Annual Legacy

Event. In May 2017, Legacy members gathered for a Sunset Cruise on the Channel Cat.

Call Elizabeth Alvarez at the CAMA Office (805) 966-4324 to learn more

about CAMA’s Endowment.
