The Russian National Orchestra was founded by Mikhail Pletnev in 1990 as a courageous demonstration of artistic freedom during the Soviet regime and has risen to the pinnacle of the classical music world; it was selected recently as one of the world’s top orchestras by a panel of international critics. The RNO will perform a special all-Rachmaninoff program celebrating the 100th Anniversary of his arrival in America in 1918, when he took up permanent US residence for the rest of his life (and performed twice for CAMA at the Lobero in 1929 and 1941). The all-Rachmaninoff program will include his ever-popular Second Piano Concerto featuring Tchaikovsky Competition silver medalist George Li.

ALL-RACHMANINOFF PROGRAM:
Vocalise, Op.34, No.14
Piano Concerto No.2 in C Minor, Op.18
Symphonic Dances, Op.45

RUSSIAN NATIONAL

ORCHESTRA

The Russian National Orchestra

was founded in 1990 by

pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev. Of

its debut at the BBC Proms in London,

the Evening Standard wrote, “They played

with such captivating beauty that the audience

gave an involuntary sigh of pleasure.”

The RNO has been described as “a

living symbol of the best in Russian art”

(Miami Herald) and “as close to perfect as

one could hope for” (Trinity Mirror).

Maintaining an active international

schedule, the RNO appears in the music

capitals of Europe, Asia and the Americas,

is a frequent guest at festivals such

as Edinburgh, the BBC Proms and Festival

Napa Valley, and presents the RNO

Grand Festival each September to open

the Moscow season.

RNO concerts are often aired on National

Public Radio, the European Broadcasting

Union, and Russia’s Kultura

8 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


channel. Their discography, launched

with a highly praised 1991 recording of

Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique, now numbers

more than 80 critically acclaimed recordings.

Notable releases include the complete

Beethoven symphonies and piano

concertos on Deutsche Grammophon,

Tchaikovsky’s six symphonies for Pentatone,

and the RNO Shostakovich project,

also on Pentatone, cited as “the most exciting

cycle of the Shostakovich symphonies

to be put down on disc, and easily the

best recorded” (SACD.net).

Their recording of Prokofiev’s Peter

and the Wolf and Beintus’ Wolf Tracks,

conducted by Kent Nagano and narrated

by Sophia Loren, Bill Clinton and Mikhail

Gorbachev, received a 2004 Grammy

Award, making the RNO the first Russian

orchestra to win the recording industry’s

highest honor. Their recording of Shostakovich

Symphony No.7, conducted by

Paavo Järvi, was awarded the Diapason

d’Or de l’Année 2015 as the year’s best

symphonic album, and was nominated for

a 2016 Grammy Award.

The RNO is unique among the principal

Russian ensembles as a private

institution funded with the support of

individuals, corporations and foundations

in Russia and throughout the world.

MIKHAIL

PLETNEV

Founder and Artistic Director

Mikhail Pletnev’s genius as pianist,

conductor and composer enchants and

amazes audiences around the globe. He

was Gold Medal and First Prize winner of

the 1978 Tchaikovsky International Piano

Competition when he was 21, a prize

that earned him early recognition worldwide.

An invitation to perform at the 1988

superpower summit in Washington led to

a friendship with Mikhail Gorbachev and

the historic opportunity to make music in

artistic freedom.

In 1990 Pletnev formed the first independent

orchestra in Russia’s history.

Many of the country’s finest musicians

joined Pletnev in launching the Russian

National Orchestra. Under his leadership,

the RNO achieved in a few short years a

towering stature among the world’s orchestras.

Pletnev describes the RNO as

his greatest joy and continues to serve

as its Artistic Director and Principal

Conductor.

Pletnev’s performances and recordings

have proved him to be an outstanding

interpreter of an extensive repertoire,

both as pianist and conductor. His recordings

have earned numerous prizes

including a 2005 Grammy Award for his

own arrangement of Prokofiev’s Cinderella.

He received Grammy nominations

for Schumann's Symphonic Etudes (2004)

and Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev Piano

Concertos No.3 (2003). His album of

Scarlatti’s Sonatas (Virgin/EMI) received

a 1996 Gramophone Award. BBC Music

Magazine called the recording “piano

playing at its greatest... this performance

alone would be enough to secure Pletnev

a place among the greatest pianists

ever known.” His recording of the complete

Beethoven symphonies and piano

concertos (Deutsche Grammophon) was

named “Best of 2007” by The New Yorker.

Pletnev’s compositions include works

for orchestra, piano, strings and voices.

His transcriptions of Nutcracker

Suite and Sleeping Beauty were selected

for the 1998 anthology “Great Pianists of

the 20th Century” (Philips Classics).

Today he is one of Russia’s most respected

and influential artists. Pianist,

conductor, composer and cultural leader—all

are significant facets of Mikhail

Pletnev’s life as an artist. Yet he considers

himself, simply, a musician.

GEORGE LI pianist

Since winning the Silver Medal at the

2015 International Tchaikovsky Competition,

pianist George Li has rapidly established

a major international reputation and

performs regularly with some of the world’s

leading orchestras and conductors.

In the 2018-19 season, Li makes his

debuts with the London Philharmonic,

Montreal Symphony, Tokyo Symphony,

10 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION

and Royal Liverpool Philharmonic; embarks

on an 11-city recital tour of China;

and tours the United States with the

Russian National Orchestra and Mikhail

Pletnev and Kirill Karabits.

Concerto highlights include performances

with the New York Philharmonic,

San Francisco Symphony, Los Angeles

Philharmonic, Philharmonia Orchestra,

Rotterdam Philharmonic, DSO Berlin,

Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic,

Orchestre National de Lyon, Sydney

Symphony, and St. Petersburg Philharmonic.

He frequently appears with Valery

Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra.

In recital, Li performs at venues including

Carnegie Hall, Davies Hall in San

Francisco, the Mariinsky Theatre, Munich’s

Gasteig, the Louvre, Seoul Arts

Center, Tokyo’s Asahi Hall and Musashino

Hall, NCPA Beijing, Shanghai Poly Theater,

and Amici della Musica Firenze, as

well as appearances at major festivals including

the Edinburgh International Festival,

Ravinia Festival, Aix-en-Provence

Festival, and Montreux Festival.

Li is an exclusive Warner Classics

recording artist, with his debut recital

album released in October 2017, which

was recorded live from the Mariinsky. n

SERGEI

RACHMANINOFF

Notes on the Program by Howard Posner

Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise was the last of

the 14 Romances for voice and piano

that he published in 1915. A vocalise is a

song, or singing exercise, without words

(in Rachmaninoff’s Vocalise the singer

could just choose a vowel). He dedicated

to Antonina Nezhdanova, a leading

soprano in the Bolshoi Opera. She had

withdrawn from the leading role in Rachmaninoff’s

1905 opera Francesca da Rimini,

but Rachmaninoff was never one

to hold a grudge. He orchestrated the

piano part shortly after he and he and

Nezhdanova performed the premiere, and

a version for orchestra without a singer

soon followed. Its popularity has led to

countless versions for virtually every instrument.

Youtube now has ten versions

performed on theremin.

His second piano concerto marked

a sort of return to the living for Rachmaninoff.

The 1897 St. Petersburg premiere

of his first symphony had been a

disaster. The composer/critic Cesar Cui

likened it to a program symphony about

the Ten Plagues composed by a talented

12 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


student in the “conservatory in hell.”

Rachmaninoff could, and did, blame

it on a bad performance, as did many

observers, but his letters also show that

he had doubts about the quality of the

symphony, which was not performed

again until nearly a half century later,

after his death. Its failure sent him into

a four-year productive drought that has

been called “depression” or “collapse,”

but in fact he was perfectly functional,

able to perform and conduct, and enjoy

the company of friends. He took a post

as conductor of the Moscow Private

Russian Opera Company in 1897 and

made his international debut in London

in 1899. But he had a crippling crisis of

confidence in himself as a composer,

and was able to compose only two piano

pieces and four songs between 1897

and 1901.

By chance, Rachmaninoff’s aunt had

been suffering from a nervous condition,

and had been helped by a hypnotherapist

named Nicolai Dahl. Every day from

January to April 1900, Rachmaninoff

had sessions with Dahl, which consisted

largely of Dahl’s telling him he was going

to compose with facility and create

a great concerto. Whether because of

Dahl, or because he was bound to climb

out of the hole sooner or later, Rachmaninoff

began composing in earnest

that summer, and found that the melodic

ideas were flowing abundantly enough

that he could work on the concerto and

a suite for two pianos at the same time.

He finished the concerto in April 1901,

and dedicated it to Dahl. It has been a hit

for more than century because it is collection

of good tunes, but it also synthesizes

concerto conventions, particularly

the de rigeur displays of virtuosity, into

a unified whole than concertos typically

tend to be.

All three movements begin in the

“wrong” key. The piano begins the first

movement, alone, in F Minor, emphasized

by a persistent low F, but the opening

turns out to be a modulation to C Minor.

The piano’s cascades of notes that

follow are impressive, but they are an

integral accompaniment that provides

harmony and rhythmic propulsion for

the very Russian-sounding first theme,

orchestrated in a very Russian way with

throaty-sounding strings. It sets a pattern

for the concerto: lots of flowing,

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE - RUSSIAN NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

13


long-lined melodies, and a solo part that

spends a remarkable portion of the concerto

as an accompanist, even if the accompaniments

are impressive cascades

of notes.

The slow movement’s opening is the

flip side of the first movement’s, with the

orchestra beginning in C Minor and arriving

improbably in E Major after four measures,

at which point the piano comes in

with an arpeggiated figure that seems to

be an accompaniment for a melody in the

clarinet. It’s not quite that simple, as the

“melody” and “accompaniment” figures

change roles as they are redistributed

between orchestra and piano during the

movement: this is one of the reasons the

concerto takes on the feel of chamber

music at times. The middle movement’s

texture is light and transparent, with the

strings muted throughout.

The finale brings the wrong-key

opening progression full circle, starting

in E Major and arriving eventually

in C Minor for the first theme, a scampering,

flighty thing that will leave little

impression on the ear because the

second subject, one of Rachmaninoff’s

most famous long-lined big tunes, will

be what you remember.

Rachmaninoff went through dry

spells of a different sort after he left Russia

in the wake of the 1917 Revolution.

He had invested nearly all his money in

an estate near Tambov, about midway

between Moscow and Volgograd, which

left him and his family nearly broke

when they left Russia in 1918. Rachmaninoff

spent much of the rest of his

career on tour, performing and recording,

and practicing new repertoire when

he got a break. It allowed him to live like

a wealthy man if a transient one, but left

him with little time, and little inclination,

to compose.

“Perhaps the incessant practice

and eternal rush inseparable from life

as a concert artist takes too much toll

of my strength; perhaps I feel that the

kind of music I care to write is not acceptable

today,” he once wrote. “For

when I left Russia, I left behind me the

desire to compose: losing my country I

lost myself also. To the exile whose musical

roots, traditions, and background

have been annihilated, there remains

no desire for self-expression.” He never

returned to the Soviet Union (though he

14 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


made plans to visit in 1921), and publicly

disapproved of its policies toward

the arts, but he never entirely turned his

back on it. In his last years, after the Axis

invasion of Russia, he performed benefit

concerts for the Russian people and the

Red Army.

Rachmaninoff composed only six

original works after 1918, the last of

which was the Symphonic Dances in the

summer of 1940. It must have been a

difficult few months. He was staying at

a Long Island estate overlooking Northport

Bay, while recuperating from surgery.

In June, France fell to the German

army, which concerned Rachmaninoff

because his daughter lived there. Nonetheless

he made quick progress on a

very ambitious large-scale work. On August

21 he wrote to Eugene Ormandy, the

Philadelphia Orchestra music director,

that the work was “finished,” which did

not actually mean finished. “I shall now

begin the orchestration. Unfortunately

my concert tour begins on 14 October. I

have a great deal of practice to do and

I don’t know whether I shall be able to

finish the orchestration before November.”

Ormandy, who had scheduled the premiere

for January and needed the score

by December, could not have been

thrilled to hear this. In the event, the premiere

took place as planned.

Rachmaninoff originally thought to

title the work “Fantastic Dances” and

give the movements descriptive titles:

“Noon,” “Twilight” and “Midnight,” according

to one source, or “Morning,”

“Noon” and “Evening,” according to another.

The titles would have conveyed

nothing worthwhile to the listener, which

is doubtless why he never used them.

Although large stretches of the music

don’t seem danceable in the sense

that, say, Dvořák’s Slavonic Dances invariably

are, Rachmaninoff saw the music

as potential ballet material. Mikhail

Fokine, who had choreographed the original

Paris productions of Les Sylphides,

Petrushka and Firebird, and more recently

formed a ballet company in New York,

was interested in staging it, but died in

1942 before anything came of the idea.

The Symphonic Dances begin boldly,

with a primitive, elemental brawniness

that can distract from the extraordinarily

detailed orchestration that

achieves a bright clarity and great variety.

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE - RUSSIAN NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

15


Rarely, for example, has the bass clarinet

heard to such advantage. The clarity and

color become more apparent in the first

movement’s slower, lyrical mid-section,

the first half of which is soulful chamber

music for the woodwinds, each contributing

a distinctive voice while the alto

saxophone sings a melancholy song. The

music of the first section returns after an

elaborate transition, and then relaxes into

a gentle finish. As it does so, a second or

two after the glockenspiel makes it only

appearance, the strings quote the motto

theme from the First Symphony, which,

significantly, shares its first four notes

with the Gregorian Dies irae chant. Rachmaninoff

could scarcely have imagined

that the symphony would ever see the

light of day again, so the reference must

have been strictly for himself.

The second movement begins as a

disagreement, with most of the orchestra

trying to start a waltz over the objections

of the brass. The waltz that eventually

asserts is a nervous one, with occasional

tempo and meter changes, and the occasional

interruption from the brass.

In the last movement, the Dies irae

makes an actual appearance in the brass,

beginning with four-note hints and eventually

building up to quotations of its first

seven notes, which is enough for a positive

I.D. It’s not clear why Rachmaninoff,

who was raised in the Russian Orthodox

Church and never went to church anyway,

was so enamored of the chant from

the Roman Catholic Requiem Mass about

judgment day; he likely absorbed it from

Berlioz and Liszt. It makes prominent appearances

in his Rhapsody on a Theme

of Paganini, The Isle of the Dead, and Third

Symphony, and less prominent appearances

in other Rachmaninoff works. An even

more prominent quote in the third movement

is from the ninth movement of his All

Night Vigil, a 1915 Orthodox liturgical work

for chorus. He lifted much of the last part

of the movement, in which Christ’s empty

tomb is discovered, to much rejoicing by

the angels. Rachmaninoff even wrote “Alliluya”

into the score at the point where the

trumpets play the Alliluya music from the

All Night Vigil. It leads immediately into the

coda, an unangelic bacchanale of about

20 seconds’ length. n

MASTERSERIES AT THE LOBERO THEATRE

SEASON SPONSORSHIP: ESPERIA FOUNDATION

Tales of Two Cities

The Leipzig-Damascus Coffee House

Conceived, programmed, and scripted by Alison Mackay

Saturday, March 9 | Lobero Theatre, 8:00 PM

Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra with Trio Arabica

Elisa Citterio Director

It’s 1740, and coffee houses are the places to listen to music and share stories, in both the famous

trading center of Leipzig and one of the oldest cities in the world, Damascus. Anyone who has attended

one of Tafelmusik’s three previous multi-media concert projects at the Lobero in the past decade

can attest to the incredible originality and conception of their insightful musical stage creations that

combine live music, text and stunning projections transporting the audience back in time and place.

Not to be missed!

CONCERT PARTNERS:

Deborah & Peter Bertling • Robert Boghosian & Mary E. Gates Warren • Bridget Colleary
