OYAL SCOTTISH

NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

The Royal Scottish National Orchestra is

Scotland’s national symphonic ensemble

and is one of the country’s five National

Performing Companies. Formed

in 1891 as the Scottish Orchestra, the

company became the Scottish National

Orchestra in 1950, and was awarded Royal

Patronage in 1991. Throughout its history,

the Orchestra has played an integral

part in Scotland's musical life, including

performing at the opening ceremony

of the Scottish Parliament building in

2004. Many renowned conductors have

contributed to its success, including

George Szell, Sir John Barbirolli, Walter

Susskind, Sir Alexander Gibson, Neeme

Järvi, Walter Weller, Alexander Lazarev

and Stéphane Denève. In 2012 the RSNO

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE - ROYAL SCOTTISH NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

welcomed British-Canadian musician

and conductor Peter Oundjian as its latest

Music Director and Danish conductor

Thomas Søndergård as Principal Guest

Conductor. 2012 also saw the appointments

of two new Leaders, James Clark

and Maya Iwabuchi.

The RSNO performs across Scotland,

including concerts in Glasgow, Edinburgh,

Dundee, Aberdeen, Perth and Inverness.

The Orchestra appears regularly at the

Edinburgh International Festival and at the

BBC Proms at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

Recent appearances in England have included

performances at Manchester’s

Bridgewater Hall, Leeds Town Hall, The

Sage, Gateshead and at The Sands Centre,

Carlisle. In 2012 it undertook a weeklong

residency in Shetland as part of the

Cultural Olympiad, providing the most

northerly UK cultural activity leading up

to the 2012 Olympic Games. The RSNO

regularly appears at the St Magnus Festival,

Orkney, and has made recent tours

to France, Germany, Spain, Austria, the

Netherlands, Luxembourg and Serbia. In

December 2012 and January 2013 the Orchestra

undertook its first mainland Asia

visit with a hugely successful tour of China

with Peter Oundjian.

The Orchestra is joined for choral

performances by the RSNO Chorus,

directed by Timothy Dean. The RSNO

Chorus evolved from a choir formed in

1843 to sing the first full performance

of Handel’s Messiah in Scotland. Today,

the RSNO Chorus is one of the most distinguished

large symphonic choruses

in Britain, with a membership of around

160. The Chorus has performed nearly

every work in the standard choral repertoire

along with contemporary works by

renowned composers, including John

Adams, Magnus Lindberg, Howard Shore

and James MacMillan.

The acclaimed RSNO Junior Chorus,

formed in 1978 by Jean Kidd, also performs

regularly alongside the Orchestra.

Since 1994 it has been directed by popular

Chorus Director, Christopher Bell, and

has expanded its membership to almost

300, with members aged from eight to

eighteen. It has built up a considerable

reputation singing under some of the

world’s most distinguished conductors

and appearing on radio and television.

The RSNO has a worldwide reputation

for the quality of its recordings, receiving

two Diapason d'Or de l'année Awards for

Symphonic Music (Denève/Roussel 2007;

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE - ROYAL SCOTTISH NATIONAL ORCHESTRA

Denève/Debussy 2012) and eight Grammy

Award nominations over the last decade.

Over 200 releases are available, including

the complete symphonies of Sibelius

(Gibson), Prokofiev (Järvi), Glazunov (Serebrier),

Nielsen and Martinů (Thomson),

Roussel (Denève) and the major orchestral

works of Debussy (Denève).

The RSNO’s Learning and Engagement

team deliver progressive participatory

music-making activities across

Scotland, from Selkirk to Shetland, working

with all ages and abilities. With a program

of activity available for new-borns

and onwards, the team are committed

to delivering the highest quality workshops

as well as nurturing and developing

new talent. From schools and nursery

concerts, to community workshops

and annual residencies during which the

Orchestra embeds itself at the center

of Scottish communities, the team connects

the Orchestra, its music and musicians

with the people of Scotland. n

JEAN SIBELIUS

Born December 8, 1865,

in Hameenlinna (Tavastehus)

Died September 20, 1957,

in Jarvenpaa, near Helsinski

Symphony No.7, Op.105, C major

Sounds of nature pervade Sibelius’ orchestral

works: the calls of swans and

cranes, or wind rustling through leaves

and screaming through pine-tops. But

Sibelius looked deeper, to the very processes

of the natural world, for inspiration.

Rivers fascinated him: ‘I should

like to compare the symphony to a

river’, he wrote in his diary in 1912. ‘It

is born from various rivulets that seek

each other and in this way the river proceeds

wide and powerful toward the

sea.’ ‘But where do we get the water’,

he asks? Another entry provides an answer:

The musical thoughts – the motives,

that is – are the things that must

create the form and stabilise my path.’

In jottings like this, Sibelius was

clearly trying to define something that

he had already begun to notice in his

own music. In the slow movement of

his Fourth Symphony (1911) his ‘musical

thoughts’ had led him to create

a new kind of form – one could call it

‘variations in search of a theme’. Then

in the Fifth (1914-19) Sibelius arrived at

a still more original idea: a moderately

paced first movement which builds up

momentum like a river approaching rapids,

eventually boiling over into a thrilling

accelerating scherzo. But it was with

the Seventh Symphony (1924) that this

process of fusing separate ‘movements’

into a single, organic unity was to reach

its ultimate expression.

The most immediately striking feature

of the Seventh Symphony - apart

from its famous, noble trombone theme

- is that it is in one continuous move-

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE - PHILHARMONIA ORCHESTRA

14


ment. Granted Sibelius wasn’t the first

composer to attempt a symphonic

structure in one movement. There

was already a magnificent example in

Schoenberg’s First Chamber Symphony

(1906). In the Schoenberg, however, it

is easy to pick out sections which resemble

the traditional symphonic first

movement, scherzo, slow movement

and so on. Sibelius’ Seventh follows a

different, much more river-like course.

The speed and character of the music

change frequently, but the different sections

(if ‘sections’ is the right word) are

so skillfully dovetailed that it is virtually

impossible to say where one begins and

another ends.

Arriving at this radical new kind of

symphonic structure was a struggle.

And when Sibelius had finished it, he

was suddenly overcome with doubt:

had he gone too far this time – was

this really a ‘symphony’ at all? When

the work first appeared in 1924, Sibelius

cautiously gave it another title,

Fantasia Sinfonica. But the work’s success

gave him courage, and Sibelius

was soon referring to it as ‘the Seventh

Symphony’.

The Symphony’s originality becomes

obvious as soon as one tries to

describe its form: one could say that

three Adagio sections - each centred on

the magnificent trombone theme mentioned

above – merge into and emerge

from two faster episodes. But even that

is too simple. At the very beginning, after

the expectant rising string scale that

starts the process, the woodwind, horn

and string phrases seem initially to be

moving at slightly different speeds –

like objects borne along on the different

currents and eddies of a great river.

After the trombone theme makes its

climactic appearance, the initial Adagio

gradually mutates into a rapid, scherzo-like

Vivacissimo. But then the dancing

string figures begin to move more

smoothly, and the trombone theme

is heard again, now in the minor. The

strings still seem to be moving quite

fast, but the trombone theme retains

15 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


its original monumental grandeur – to

borrow an image from Sibelius’ sketchbook,

it is like seeing the moon through

swirling storm-clouds.

After this moment of vision, the

music surges on into an Allegro molto

moderato. This seems steady enough

for a while, but then comes a pause,

and a sudden gear-change (the only

one in the entire Symphony): leading

to a long Presto crescendo powered

by driving string figures and the rising

scale that began the symphony (now

on horns). Through these the trombone

theme returns in full, this time

in the original sunlit C major. There is

an elemental climax, then the clouds

vanish and high strings initiate a slow,

chorale-like winding down. A brief

reminiscence of the trombone theme

leads to a moment of hush (woodwind

and strings), before the music settles

firmly in C major for the rock-like final

cadence.

SERGEI

RACHMANINOFF

Born April 1, 1873 in Semyonovo

Died March 28, 1943 in Beverly Hills

Rhapsody on a Theme

of Paganini, Op.43

The inspiration

Rachmaninov’s 1934 Rhapsody consists

of 24 variations on a pithy but

memorable tune by 18th-century Italian

violinist Nicolò Paganini (1782-

1840): his 24th Caprice for solo violin

— itself a theme with variations. Rachmaninov

was not the first to see the

melody's potential for further invention,

with Brahms and Liszt both basing

virtuoso piano works on it, and when

the choreographer Michael Fokine suggested

to him that they collaborate on

a ballet, Rachmaninov pushed hard for

the Rhapsody, elaborating on his own

imagined visual scenario: ‘Consider

the Paganini legend – about the sale

of his soul to the evil spirit in exchange

for perfection in art, and for a woman.

All variations on the Dies Irai would be

for the evil spirit.’

The music

There is certainly a devilish quality

about the opening, presenting in skeletal,

mysterious form the bare ‘bones’ of

Paganini’s tune. After this first variation

the theme itself is heard plainly on the

violins, sharpened by some initial brittle

notes from the soloist. The piano then

resumes the variations, rudely pinging

out the first phrases of the theme before

dashing away in exuberant scales.

Rachmaninov now begins to totally

break down Paganini’s tune, often exploiting

stark contrasts of texture and

technique between piano and orchestra.

One moment, the soloist plays a nonchalant,

almost lazy foil to a feverishly chat-

17 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


tering woodwind section – while in the

next, it is full of elfin humour and impatient

rushings over sober strings. Much

of the dramatic impetus comes from

the juxtaposition of the Paganini music

with a tune based on the medieval Dies

Irai plainchant; this first appears in the

seventh variation in the piano’s sober,

somehow monastic chords, with doleful

commentary from a bassoon.

The piece is notable not only for

Rachmaninov’s tireless, febrile creativity

with his material, but also for the

orchestral variety and colour. In the demonic

ninth variation, for example, the

strings conjure unearthly sounds from

the wooden edge of their bows joined

by nasty, cheeping woodwinds, and then

an anxiously tapping cymbal. Effects of

the greatest delicacy abound too; when,

out of a silence, single plucked violin

tones begin to tread forward, a gently

poised minuet begins, featuring yearning

solos from clarinet, horn and cellos.

The actual methods by which Rachmaninov

varies the theme are often disarmingly

simple; the tune of the muchloved

eighteenth variation is formed

by merely turning the first five notes

of the Paganini theme upside down!

SERGEI

PROKOFIEV

© Robin Versteeg

Born April 23, 1891 in Sontzovka, Ukraine

Died March 5, 1953 in Moscow

Symphony No.5, Op.100,

B-flat major

In 1936 Prokofiev, with his family, made

a final return to the Soviet Union to settle

for good. While he had the undoubted

satisfaction of being at home in his

native land, with the added stimulus

of the fellowship of his countrymen after

years of wandering, the remaining

17 years of his life were far from easy.

Prokofiev’s return coincided with some

difficult times in the musical and artistic

life of the Soviet Union, from which

his emeritus status was by no means

a guarantee of protection. But despite

these difficulties in working circumstances

and the reception of compositions,

there were also stimulating times

for the composer. In the late 1930s Prokofiev

began his historic collaboration

with the film director Sergey Eisenstein

and a remarkably successful encounter

with socialist realism in the Cantata for

the Twentieth Anniversary of the October

Revolution (1937), even if the work was

18 CENTENNIAL SEASON CELEBRATION


not deemed sufficiently socialist or realist

by the authorities.

The early 1940s were marked by

personal misfortune for Prokofiev. In

Spring 1941 he had a number of heart

attacks. Along with his physical disability

came the dissolution of his marriage

and evacuation to the remoter parts of

the Soviet Union as part of a policy to

remove the artistic community from the

immediate effects of the War. But these

were also productive years in which he

composed the monumental opera based

on Tolstoy’s War and Peace and the ballet

Cinderella.

The same period of difficulty and

constraint saw the composition of the

Fifth Symphony in B flat. It was composed

in 1944 and premiered on 13 January

1945 with Prokofiev conducting - his

last public performance. The success

which greeted the unveiling of this work

was very much the high summer of the

composer’s career in the Soviet Union.

The enthusiastic reception was genuine

and heartfelt, and the Symphony has

maintained a hold on the repertoire both

in Russia and abroad. The contemporary

fate of the Symphony stood in marked

contrast to Prokofiev’s next attempt at

the genre. The Sixth Symphony, along

with Shostakovich’s Eighth, was branded

as ‘formalist’. And 1948 saw the widespread

condemnation of much of the

composer’s work and his gradual retreat

from public life.

Prokofiev was well aware of the significance

of his Fifth Symphony. In an

introduction to a broadcast of the work

in 1945 he mentioned that it was his first

work in the genre for 16 years. He went

on to say that he conceived it as an expression

of ‘the greatness of the human

spirit’. That his view of the ‘human spirit’

was clearly optimistic is evident from

the prevalent tone of the score, most

occasional moments of darkness and

of humanity in what must be considered

one of Prokofiev’s most successful

works.

The gentle lyrical opening generates

much of the material of the first movement,

including some vigorous development.

The broad return of the main theme

leads to a grand, march-like peroration.

While the first movement breathes the air

of joyful aspiration, the scherzo-like second

communicates through its charm

and wit; its graceful central section has

clear affinities with the music for Cinderella,

composed shortly before the

Symphony. The Adagio continues in the

same vein of sustained lyricism, with the

brief tension of the middle section giving

way to a grand and dignified climax. The

Finale begins modestly enough, with

some delicately orchestrated introductory

gestures before the violas introduce

the body of the movement. The breezy

main theme appears first in the clarinet

before it is taken up by the other sections

of the orchestra. The prevalent tone is

light and understated, with Prokofiev

keeping the full force of the orchestra in

check apart from occasional moments

of development. The end comes abruptly

after some strangely comic cadence

gestures from an orchestra reduced

to soloists. n

Augustin Hadelich violin

Orion Weiss piano

Named “Instrumentalist of the Year” for 2018 by Musical America,

Augustin Hadelich has firmly established himself as one of the world’s

great violinists – and one of classical music’s most inspiring performers. His

many honors also include a 2016 Grammy® and the inaugural 2015 Warner

Prize. He returns to CAMA for the 4th consecutive year following his riveting

performance of the Britten Violin Concerto with the St. Louis Symphony

at The Granada Theatre last season and will once again be playing the

“Kiesewetter” Stradivarius violin.

PROGRAM:

Ludwig van Beethoven: Violin Sonata No.4 in A minor, Op.23

Claude Debussy: Sonata in G minor (1917)

Francisco Coll: Hyperlude V (2014) (solo violin)

Mischa Maisky cello

Lily Maisky piano

Kasskara ©Deutsche Grammophon

Lauded by The Guardian for his “dazzling precision, fleet brilliance, and tender lyricism”, Latvianborn

Israeli cello master Mischa Maisky is considered by many worldwide to be one of the

handful of greatest living cellists. He has the distinction of being the only cellist in the world

to have studied with both Mstislav Rostropovich and Gregor Piatigorsky and to carry on the

deep musical legacy of these two great 20th Century Russian masters of the cello. His romantic

emotion and absolute musical commitment carry the command of a true artist. It is fitting that

Mischa Maisky will return by popular demand to the historic Lobero for the closing recital of

CAMA’s historic 100th Concert Season.

PROGRAM:

Robert Schumann: Five Pieces in the Folk Style, Op.102

Johannes Brahms: Cello Sonata No.2 in F major, Op.99

Sergei Rachmaninoff: Mélodie in E major, Op.3, No.3 (transcription by Mischa Maisky)

Rachmaninoff: Vocalise, Op.34, No.14

Rachmaninoff: Elégie, Op.3, No.1 (transcription by Mischa Maisky)

Dmitri Shostakovich: Cello Sonata in D minor, Op.40 (1934)

CELEBRATING

CAMA's CENTENNIAL

by Hattie Beresford

Celebrating CAMA’s Centennial

commemorates the CAMA story

with hundreds of images and engaging

tales of the spectacular musical performances

brought to the the stages of Santa Barbara’s concert halls.

Beautiful music, exciting music, profound music — Community

Arts Music Association has been bringing this gift to Santa Barbara for

100 years. Born in the dark days following World War I, flourishing during

the Roaring Twenties, and eluding demise during the Great Depression,

CAMA has endured through a story of struggle, survival and triumph as

compelling as the world-renowned music and performers it brought.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Besides writing a local history column for the Montecito Journal for

over a decade, Hattie Beresford has written two issues of Noticias

and co-edited My Santa Barbara Scrap Book, the memoir of artist

Elizabeth Eaton Burton, for the Santa Barbara Historical Museum. Her

most recent book, The Way It Was: Santa Barbara Comes of Age, is a

collection of a few of her nearly 300 articles written for the Journal.
