Biography

Los Angeles Philharmonic

The Los Angeles Philharmonic, under

the vibrant leadership of Music & Artistic

Director Gustavo Dudamel, presents

an inspiring array of music, through a

commitment to foundational works and

adventurous explorations. Both at home

and abroad, the Philharmonic recognized

as one of the world’s outstanding

orchestras is leading the way in groundbreaking

programming, both on stage and

in the community, offering a diverse range

of programs that reflect the orchestra’s

artistry and demonstrate its vision. 2017/18

marks the orchestra’s 99th season.

More than 250 concerts are either

performed or presented by the LA Phil at

its two iconic venues: the Frank Gehrydesigned

Walt Disney Concert Hall and the

Hollywood Bowl. During its winter season

with approximately 165 performances

at Walt Disney Concert Hall, the LA Phil

creates festivals, artist residencies, and

other thematic programs designed to

enhance the symphonic music experience

and delve further into certain artists’

or composers’ work. The organization’s

commitment to the music of our time

is also evident throughout the season

4


Among its wide-ranging education initiatives is Youth Orchestra Los Angeles (YOLA).

Inspired by Venezuela’s revolutionary El Sistema, the LA Phil and its community

partners provide free instruments, intensive music training, and leadership training

to nearly 800 students from underserved neighborhoods, empowering them through

multi-year engagement to be college-ready and on a path to becoming vital citizens,

leaders, and agents of change.

programming, as well as in the exhilarating

Green Umbrella series and the LA Phil’s

extensive commissioning initiatives.

Since 2003, the LA Phil’s winter home

has been the inimitable Walt Disney

Concert Hall. Praise for both the design

and the acoustics of Walt Disney Concert

Hall has been effusive, and the building

embodies the energy, imagination, and

creative spirit of the city of Los Angeles

and its orchestra.

The orchestra’s involvement with Los

Angeles extends far beyond symphony

concerts in a concert hall, with

performances in schools, churches, and

neighborhood centers of a vastly diverse

community. Among its wide-ranging

education initiatives is Youth Orchestra Los

Angeles (YOLA). Inspired by Venezuela’s

revolutionary El Sistema, the LA Phil and

its community partners provide free

instruments, intensive music training, and

leadership training to nearly 800 students

from underserved neighborhoods,

empowering them through multi-year

engagement to be college-ready and on

a path to becoming vital citizens, leaders,

and agents of change.

The orchestra also undertakes tours,

both domestically and internationally,

including regular visits with partners in

New York, Paris, and Tokyo, among others.

The Philharmonic has been an

International Associate at London’s

Barbican Centre since 2009. The

orchestra’s very first tour was in 1921, and

the Philharmonic has made annual tours

beginning with the 1969/70 season.

The orchestra has a substantial catalog

of concerts available online, including

the first full-length classical music video

released on iTunes. In 2017, the Los Angeles

Philharmonic and Conductor Laureate

Esa-Pekka Salonen were nominated for a

Grammy for Best Classical Compendium

for their live recording of Frank Zappa’s

200 Motels.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic was

founded by William Andrews Clark, Jr., a

millionaire and amateur musician, who

established the city’s first permanent

symphony orchestra in 1919. Walter

Henry Rothwell became its first Music

Director, serving until 1927; since then,

ten renowned conductors have served in

that capacity: Georg Schnéevoigt (1927-

1929); Artur Rodzinski (1929-1933); Otto

Klemperer (1933-1939); Alfred Wallenstein

(1943-1956); Eduard van Beinum (1956-

1959); Zubin Mehta (1962-1978); Carlo Maria

Giulini (1978-1984); André Previn (1985-

1989); Esa-Pekka Salonen (1992-2009);

and Gustavo Dudamel (2009-present). n

Biography

Gustavo

Dudamel

As an internationally renowned symphonic

and operatic conductor, Gustavo Dudamel

is motivated by a profound belief in music’s

power to unite and inspire. He currently

serves as Music Director of the Simón

Bolívar Symphony Orchestra of Venezuela

and Music & Artistic Director of the Los

Angeles Philharmonic, and the impact of

his leadership extends from the greatest

concert stages to classrooms, cinemas, and

innovative digital platforms around the world.

Dudamel also appears as guest conductor

with some of the world’s most famous musical

institutions: in 2017/18, he leads the Bavarian

Radio Symphony Orchestra in Munich, tours

Europe with the Berlin Philharmonic, and

takes the Vienna Philharmonic on a tour of

the Americas, with concerts in New York’s

Carnegie Hall, Mexico City’s Bellas Artes,

Bogotá’s Teatro Mayor, as well as the famed

Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires. This season also

sees Dudamel’s return to the opera house,

conducting a new production of Puccini’s La

Bohème at the Opéra National de Paris.

Dudamel is now in his ninth season as

Music & Artistic Director of the Los Angeles

Philharmonic, and his contract has been

extended until 2021/22. At his initiative, the

Los Angeles Philharmonic has dramatically

expanded the scope of its community

outreach programs, including, most notably,

the creation of Youth Orchestra Los Angeles

(YOLA), influenced by the philosophy of

Venezuela’s admired El Sistema, which

encourages social development through

music. With YOLA and diverse local

educational initiatives, Dudamel brings music

to children in underserved communities of

Los Angeles.

Dudamel’s work in his native Venezuela

serves as the cornerstone of his engagement

with young people, and he steadfastly

commits some 25 weeks of his annual

schedule to the orchestras and children of

El Sistema, both in Caracas and around the

country. During his 19th season as Music

Director of the entire El Sistema project,

he continues to lead the Simón Bolívar

Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela, as well

as on tour around the globe.

Recordings, broadcasts, and digital

innovations are also fundamental to

Dudamel’s passionate advocacy for universal

access to music. A Grammy-winning Deutsche

Grammophon artist since 2005, Dudamel has

6


also independently produced an all-Wagner

recording available exclusively for download,

a complete set of Beethoven symphonies

for digital learning, and a broadcast of two

Stravinsky ballets with the Simón Bolívar

Symphony Orchestra in cooperation with the

Berlin Philharmonic’s Digital Concert Hall.

Gustavo Dudamel is one of the most

decorated conductors of his generation.

He received the Americas Society Cultural

Achievement Award in 2016, and the 2014

Leonard Bernstein Lifetime Achievement

Award for the Elevation of Music in Society

from the Longy School of Music. He was

named Musical America’s 2013 Musician of

the Year, one of the highest honors in the

classical music industry, and was voted into

the Gramophone Hall of Fame. In October of

2011, he was named Gramophone Artist of

the Year, and in May of the same year, was

inducted into the Royal Swedish Academy

of Music in consideration of his “eminent

merits in the musical art.” The previous year,

he received the Eugene McDermott Award in

the Arts at MIT.

Access to music for all has

been the cornerstone of Gustavo’s

philosophy both professionally and

philanthropically. Inspired by his early

musical and mentoring experiences,

the Gustavo Dudamel Foundation,

a registered charity, was created in 2012

with the goal of promoting access to music

as a human right and catalyst for learning,

integration, and social change.

Program Notes

FIREWORKS

Igor Stravinsky

(1882-1971)

Composed: 1908

Length: c.5 minutes

Orchestration: piccolo, 2 flutes,

2 oboes (2nd = English horn), 3 clarinets

(3rd = bass clarinet), 2 bassoons,

6 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba,

timpani, percussion (bass drum, cymbals,

glockenspiel, triangle), 2 harps, celesta,

and strings

First Los Angeles Philharmonic

performance: July 21, 1925, Fritz Reiner

conducting

Stravinsky’s Fireworks in spite of its

brevity occupies an important place in

his output for two reasons. First, most

commentators consider it his first fully

characteristic piece, the work in which the

young composer’s own voice emerged for

the first time, unencumbered by echoes of

his forebears. Second, Fireworks got the

attention of a figure who would play a key

role in Stravinsky’s career, the impresario

Serge Diaghilev.

Stravinsky wrote Fireworks as a wedding

present for Nadezhda Rimsky-Korsakov,

daughter of composer and pedagogue

Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky’s most

important teacher, and another Rimsky

pupil, Maximilian Steinberg. Steinberg

received the finished composition by the

end of June 1908 and expressed his initial

enthusiasm in a July 1 letter to his friend

Mikhail Gnesin, who would later become

a famous teacher in his own right: “I

like it very much; the music is typical

of Igor…. It’s brilliantly scored, if it only

proves playable, for it’s incredibly hard.”

Over the years, Stravinsky’s once friendly

relationship with Steinberg hardened

into mutual animosity; Stravinsky’s own

biography records a different reaction

from Steinberg, the memory certainly

polluted by those feelings: “The best he

could do even for my Fireworks was to

shrug his shoulders.”

The audience at the work’s first public

performance wasn’t much warmer, but, by

that time, the little “fantasy” had already

made its impression on Diaghilev. He

heard Stravinsky play it at the piano at a

10


private performance at the Conservatory

sometime in 1909, before the public

premiere in January 1910. The work gave

Diaghilev the encouragement he needed

to commission a full-length ballet from

Stravinsky the result was The Firebird,

a score foreshadowed by Fireworks in

many ways. By the time of Fireworks’

public premiere, Diaghilev was already

laying the groundwork for Stravinsky’s

success a review essentially “planted”

by the impresario praised Fireworks for its

“witty hints at the reproduction in sound

of a sensational explosion of skyrockets”

in music distinguished by its “richness of

substance.”

Fireworks begins with a running

accompaniment in the flutes and a

swinging three-note motto tossed

between horns, first violins (with piccolo

and pizzicato seconds and violas), and

solo trumpet. Horns and trumpets develop

this motto into fanfares; a final explosion

from the percussion leads to a languid

central section. The work’s ternary form

(A-B-A) means that Stravinsky brings back

the opening material to round things off,

a time-honored structural device. It’s

Fireworks’ musical substance above all,

its quirky harmonic twists and transparent

orchestration that points the way

forward, with pre-echoes of several

passages from The Firebird and the later

Diaghilev ballets. John Mangum

(b.1974)

Composed: 2017

First Los Angeles Philharmonic

performances (world premiere)

Thresholds, Joseph Pereira’s new score

reminds us, are two faced, looking

backwards and forwards. They separate

and they connect, they open and they

close. They represent opportunity and the

path not yet taken; cross the threshold

and you are committed to a new space.

11


“Music, and art in general, is really about

creating space, and the thresholds within

that space are what really interest me,”

Pereira says. “At the time of writing this

piece, I could not help but think about the

world we now live in, how the ‘threshold’

of our current human experience of

each other and the world has changed

drastically. There are so many issues we

are now faced with, issues that get thrown

at us every day from the news and now

you have to question if any of it is even

true.

“Whether you agree with certain issues

or not, we are living in a polarized climate.

In a way, there’s a concentration of

intensity which questions the thresholds

we live in. Because of this, life has become

saturated with tension and anxiety much

like the feeling of this piece.”

Sonic space then is a formal element

of Threshold, and timbre and texture are

its thematic components. This is reflected

physically, with the three soloists spread

symmetrically across the front of the

orchestra, with ceramic tiles literal

thresholds made musical in center

place. Indeed, with three percussionists

of its own across the back, the orchestra

is enveloped in percussion, and most

instruments exploit and share percussive

techniques and gestures, just as there are

bowed and resonating wind elements in

the percussion array.

The piece was written for the Maraca2

percussion duo at their suggestion. The solo

parts are very virtuosic, and create a sense

of volatility and anxiousness. But though they

are sometimes competitive with each other

and have defined cadenzas, they are not in

opposition with the orchestra, or contrasted

against it, in conventional concerto dynamics.

That is another freely explored and crossed

threshold, as the sound of soloists and

orchestra merge into a strong collective

presence, expanding and relaxing as a sort

of organic hyper-instrument.

The three soloists begin at maximum

distance from each other, with a softly

sighing ebb and flow from gongs placed on

timpani. Orchestral instruments soon join

them, and the gliding glissandos merge

into the sound of blown air, and finally

pitched scales, which symbolize “meaning.”

The chanting rhythms that come in and out

of time and the temple bowls with bells

suggest religious rituals, representing hope.

The air sounds that come back, mostly

at the end of the piece, symbolize nature,

a reminder that there’s something bigger

than us,” the composer says. “It is not

12


until the last section that we have all the

elements together air, chanting, and

the barest elements of the pitch material

attempting to create a vast open space.

The soloists’ parts are mostly improvised

here. The solo material is laid out linearly

against the orchestra, creating even more

expansive space.”

John Henken

SYMPHONY

NO.1 IN

C MINOR, OP.68

Johannes Brahms

(1833-1897)

Composed: 1855-1876

Length: c.45 minutes

Orchestration: 2 flutes, 2 oboes,

2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon,

4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones,

timpani, and strings

First Los Angeles Philharmonic

performance: October 21, 1921, Walter

Henry Rothwell conducting

Because of his relentlessly self-questioning

nature, Brahms waited longer than most

composers to write his first symphony.

When, at the age of 20, he met Robert

Schumann, the older composer heard in

the piano sonatas Brahms played for him

“veiled symphonies.” Although Brahms

tended to destroy the evidence of his

unfinished works, he sometimes recast

scores in new ways; thus, we can hear

in the stormy opening movement of his

First Piano Concerto music that had been

intended as a symphony (as early as 1854).

By 1862, Brahms had presumably

composed at least the first movement

of his First Symphony; he sent the music

to Clara Schumann. In 1868, he sent her

a birthday postcard from Switzerland,

quoting a tune the composer claimed to

have heard played on an Alpine horn by

a shepherd. This music would reappear

to introduce the famous striding theme

of the Symphony’s finale. Despite these

indications of his occasional attention

to the Symphony, it would have to wait

until 1876 for completion, and even then

the composer would make significant

revisions to the second movement before

publishing the work in 1877.

Brahms opens his Symphony No.1

with music of extraordinary intensity.

Throbbing basses and relentless timpani

strokes create an immediate atmosphere

of darkness and conflict. The struggle

proceeds in two directions at once, rising

from below and falling from above, but

overlapping musical phrases are also

dueling with one another. After the tension

subsides, a sudden single drum stroke

announces the beginning of the Allegro

section. There is hardly what could be

identified as a theme, since Brahms

continues his motivic expansion, sculpting

the air before our very ears with bold

sweeping gestures. There are moments

of relaxation during the course of the

movement’s progress, but they seem

always to lead us back to ever more

13


intense activity. Finally, however, the coda

brings serene, almost seraphic resolution.

Between his stormy opening and

turbulent conclusion, Brahms places a

pair of interludes. The Andante is dreamy

and withdrawn, almost religious in its

contemplative mood. Once more, the

scoring is distinctive, this time emphasizing

the exquisite delicacy of a composer

whose greatest “hit” for many years was

that notorious Lullaby. The composer’s

chamber-music experience serves him

well in the closing pages of the movement,

with a solo violin floating sweetly above

the orchestra. The third movement is an

easy-going Allegretto, with wonderfully

bucolic writing for the clarinets. This might

be part of a “Pastoral” Symphony, had

Brahms written one.

Once again, a slow introduction sets

the stage for the movement to follow.

Urgent music for pizzicato strings leads

us through mysterious, disturbing pages

to one of the most truly pictorial moments

in all of Brahms. The mists clear away as

we hear the horn call from that birthday

card to Clara Schumann, continuing in a

noble flute solo; as the echoes subside,

a chorale from the trombones introduces

a repeat of the horn call, which gives

way to what Michael Steinberg describes

simply as “the tune.” Again, we hear the

full mastery of the orchestra as Brahms

approaches the culmination of his musical

drama. Instead of repeating “the tune” at

the climax, he turns to the horn call for

the final grand chorale that precedes a

vigorous and triumphant coda.

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

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.
