CAMA Presents
Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment

Tuesday, February 13, 2018
The Granada Theatre, Santa Barbara, 8PM

Nicola Benedetti, violin/director
Michael Gurevich, concertmaster/director

ALL-BEETHOVEN PROGRAM:
Ludwig van Beethoven: Symphony No.4 in B-flat Major, Op.60
Beethoven: Violin Concerto in D Major, Op.61

For the past 30 years, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment has shocked, changed and mesmerized the music world by reinventing the orchestra. Working with several principal artists, not just one conductor, and performing repertoire from a variety of eras on period-specific instruments, the London-based ensemble stands for excellence, diversity and exploration. It has become the toast of the European touring circuit with annual performances at London’s most prominent arts centers including the Southbank Centre, BBC Proms and Glyndebourne.

Nicola Benedetti is one of the most sought after violinists of her generation. Her ability to captivate audiences with her innate musicianship and dynamic presence, coupled with her wide appeal as a high profile advocate for classical music, has made her one of the most influential classical artists of today. •

Biography

Three decades ago, a group of inquisitive

London musicians took a long hard look at

that curious institution we call the Orchestra,

and decided to start again from scratch.

They began by throwing out the rulebook.

Put a single conductor in charge? No way.

Specialise in repertoire of a particular

era? Too restricting. Perfect a work and

then move on? Too lazy. The Orchestra

of the Age of Enlightenment was born.

And as this distinctive ensemble

playing on period-specific instruments

began to get a foothold, it made a promise

to itself. It vowed to keep questioning,

adapting and inventing as long as it lived.

Those original instruments became just

one element of its quest for authenticity.

Baroque and Classical music became just

one strand of its repertoire. Every time

the musical establishment thought it had

a handle on what the OAE was all about,

the ensemble pulled out another shocker:

a Symphonie Fantastique here, some

conductor-less Bach there. All the while,

the Orchestra’s players called the shots.

At first it felt like a minor miracle.

Ideas and talent were plentiful; money

wasn’t. Somehow, the OAE survived to a

Program Notes

Ludwig

van Beethoven (1770-1827)

Symphony No.4 in B-flat Major, Op.60

I Adagio Allegro vivace

II Adagio

III Allegro vivace

IV Allegro ma non troppo

Much of Beethoven’s music sounds every bit

as revolutionary as the time in which it was

written. In the first years of the nineteenth

century, new social impulses were surging

through Europe in the aftermath of the

French Revolution. In these turbulent times,

the first fully freelance composer of note was

wresting musical expression from the grip of

the aristocracy.

Two of the most iconic manifestations

of Beethoven’s struggle are his Third and

Fifth Symphonies. One heroic, one tragic,

both deal in the big gestures that aligned

musical expression with the upheavals of the

time. In between the two came a symphony

that sounded rather different. Beethoven

Gustav Mahler, photo by

actually wrote Adolph his E. Fourth Bieber-Kohut Symphony (1900) either

side of work on his Fifth. The piece has

been described variously as ‘delicate’ and

‘shrinking’. Perhaps it is best viewed not as a

departure from the imperatives of the Third

and Fifth, but as a catching of the breath in

between them.

As in the Violin Concerto heard later

tonight, it’s easy to miss the progressive

characteristics in a piece that doesn’t

stampede or rail like its neighbours. In

this symphony, Beethoven maintains the

elements of surprise, shock and suspense

with which he had ensured audiences at

his concerts would sit up and listen. But

here, they’re more guarded and obscured.

As the Beethoven expert Barry Cooper has

observed, this symphony shows a far greater

10


degree of integration between sections. It

blurs its boundaries more.

We hear that happening in the symphony’s

opening movement. After a slow introduction

full of suspense, the Allegro vivace seems

to collapse into life. A steady stream of

boisterous music follows until the movement

loses power and we hear ominous rumblings

from the tuned drums at the back of the

orchestra, the timpani.

This is an unusual gesture from

Beethoven. Firstly because it’s a drum rather

than a melody instrument which proceeds to

herald the return of the opening music, with

a 23-bar timpani rumble on the keynote, B

flat. Secondly, because Beethoven creates

a curiously stabilizing mixture of rootedness

and expectation in that timpani roll, an idea

he would take further in the Violin Concerto.

The timpani come to the fore again in

Beethoven’s Adagio. We hear a graceful song

over a pulsating accompaniment, both on

strings to begin with. Not really music for

drums, you might think. But Beethoven’s

timpani creep into the discourse once more,

taking over that that accompaniment figure

entirely in the movement’s closing bars.

Traditionally, symphonic third movements

referenced aristocratic dances, a Minuet

alternating with a Trio in three-time. As in his

First Symphony, the republican Beethoven

subverts his dances, obliterating them

physically and aesthetically with crossrhythms

and syncopations. Point made.

All the musical themes presented so

far are heard again in Beethoven’s final

movement. But there are games in store

here too. After a lone bassoon introduces

a breakneck theme, the orchestra charges

forwards before appearing to completely

lose power again, twice. The second time,

the music stops completely. First violins play

the same theme quietly and at half speed,

the bassoon follows hesitantly, and suddenly

the full orchestra lunges in again to bring the

symphony to its close.

Some claim the Fourth Symphony sounds

different because it’s concerned more

with musical arguments than with social

or philosophical ones. That final movement

adds weight to the theory. Beethoven wrote

the symphony quickly in the summer of

1806, rocked by poor performances of his

opera Fidelio and deeply worried by his

brother Carl’s ill-advised decision to marry.

If Beethoven had sought to escape in ‘pure

music’, the result suggests it was a fruitful

and happy place to be.

Ludwig

van Beethoven (1770-1827)

Violin Concerto in D Major, Op.61

I Allegro ma non troppo

II Larghetto

III Rondo: Allegro

Yet another piece was brewing inside

Beethoven in 1806, one that also prompts

thoughts of an emotional escape. In the very

same notebooks as he was sketching the

Fifth Symphony, Beethoven was playing with

ideas for a work that would share some of

its characteristics but would sound entirely

different once more. It was a Violin Concerto

11


Program Notes

in the sunny key of D Major, the brightest

and most contented orchestral work the

composer would write.

The concerto was commissioned by

Franz Clement, leader of the Theatre an der

Wien’s orchestra, which had introduced the

composer’s Third Symphony the year before.

There wasn’t a great deal of time separating

Beethoven’s finishing of the piece in mid-

December 1806 and Clement’s booking to

perform it on 23 of that month. Either way,

the first performance was a notorious fiasco

in which Clement resorted to showmanship

in an attempt to maintain the audience’s

attention. It took the more committed

partnership of violinist Joseph Joachim and

conductor Felix Mendelssohn to rescue the

concerto from obscurity, in London, almost

forty years later.

The demands placed on both Clement

and Joachim were sizeable. Despite it’s

cheerful nature, Beethoven’s concerto is a

tricky customer. It is also a piece from which

many of our modern notions of virtuosity

stem. Beethoven was insistent that the role

of music in society be changed, an ideal he

reflected musically as well as physically in

his five piano concertos. The Violin Concerto

may be genial and tender, but its solo line is

a triumphant endorsement of individual will,

spirit and integrity that almost all subsequent

concertos for the violin have built on.

Once again, we experience a determined

but quiet revolution in this piece. And once

again, the timpani are to the fore. Five

rooted but understated drumbeats secure

the concerto’s foundations and are followed

by a theme that does much the same via

a combination of grandeur and economy.

When the solo violin enters soon afterwards,

it does so on the sharpened pitch of the

keynote D, with Beethoven asking that it be

played ‘sweetly’.

This was an unorthodox way to begin

a concerto (which might well have put the

frighteners on Clement) but one that gave

the piece its distinctively genial footing.

These first pages establish the work’s tonal

and rhythmic centres of gravity despite or

perhaps because of that semitone diversion.

Listen out for the return of the drumbeats, at

pivotal moments, as the concerto proceeds

(sometimes they are reimagined by the

orchestra itself).

Another vital example of the concerto’s

unusual disposition comes in the middle

movement, marked Larghetto (‘fairly

slow’). Here the violin presents variations

on a contemplative theme over a muted

accompaniment that includes touching

pizzicatos (plucked strings). In Beethovenian

terms, this is music of comparatively little

action. But it rises to poignant climaxes

before the strings hurl the music back into

the home key with a sudden fortissimo (‘very

loud’) outburst.

The soloist’s cadenza an improvised

flourish then plonks the orchestra onto

the rails of the playful final movement, which

employs a theme Beethoven doesn’t once

feel the need to alter. The music charges

along until it veers into a quiet diversion, and

then into another strange key (A flat), before

halting conclusively once and for all.

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

Thank you for being part of our Community.

CAMA offers the opportunity to ensure the

future of our mission to bring world-class music

to Santa Barbara. By including CAMA in your will or

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.
