In Memoriam

CARL PERRY

JUNE 26, 1932 – OCTOBER 23, 2021

CAMA mourns the sudden passing of Carl D. Perry this past October. Mr. Perry

was an extremely well-respected CAMA Board member, mentor, colleague,

and friend whose expansive imagination and infectious energy brought people

together in service of CAMA’s community mission.

A Santa Barbara native, Mr. Perry’s career was remarkable for his many and

diverse accomplishments. After serving in the US Army as an aide to the

American Commanding General of Berlin during the Berlin Air Lift, he went

on to become Vice-President of Worldwide Operations at Hughes Aircraft

and Executive Vice President at Canadair Ltd., the preeminent civil and

military aircraft manufacturer in Canada. He assisted the organization and

implementation of the 1984 Summer Olympics in Los Angeles, and concluded

his long career by pioneering products for electric and hybrid electric vehicles

as Chairman and CEO of Enova Systems Inc. of Edmonton, Canada.

Upon joining the CAMA Board in 2019, Mr. Perry served on committees

overseeing programming and marketing activities. His long experience and

expertise in bringing products and services to the public attention were

invaluable assets that continue to guide CAMA as we move into our coming

concert seasons. He will long be remembered with great respect and affection.

As the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra (RPO)

celebrates its seventy-fifth anniversary, its

mission to enrich lives through orchestral

experiences that are uncompromising in

their excellence and inclusive in their appeal,

places the RPO at the forefront of

music-making in the UK and internationally.

Typically performing approximately 200

concerts each season and with a worldwide

audience of more than half-a-million people,

the Orchestra embraces a broad repertoire

that enables it to reach the most diverse audience

of any British symphony orchestra.

Whilst artistic integrity remains paramount,

the RPO is unafraid to push boundaries and

is equally at home recording video game,

film and television soundtracks and working

with pop stars, as it is performing the

great symphonic repertoire.

The RPO collaborates with the most inspiring

artists and was thrilled to welcome

Vasily Petrenko as its new Music Director

in August 2021. His appointment stands

as a major landmark in the Orchestra’s history,

signalling its determination to broaden

the audience for orchestral music while enhancing

its reputation as one of the world’s

most versatile ensembles. Vasily Petrenko

made his debut with the RPO at London’s

Royal Albert Hall in March 2016 delivering

a powerful interpretation of Mahler’s Symphony

No.2, ‘Resurrection’. His rapport with

montecito.bank


the Orchestra’s players has been reaffirmed

with subsequent London performances,

and forthcoming plans include a series of

Mahler’s choral symphonies at the Royal

Albert Hall, the great works of English composers

at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival

Hall, and tours to Germany and leading

European festivals. Vasily Petrenko joins

a roster of titled conductors that includes

Pinchas Zukerman (Principal Guest Conductor),

Alexander Shelley (Principal Associate

Conductor) and Grzegorz Nowak (Permanent

Associate Conductor).

In addition to the Orchestra’s annual

season of concerts in London’s Royal Albert

Hall, Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall

and its home Cadogan Hall, the RPO is a respected

cultural ambassador and enjoys a

busy schedule of international touring, performing

in the world’s great concerts halls

and at prestigious international festivals.

The RPO is recognised as being the

UK’s most in-demand orchestra, an accolade

that would have pleased Sir Thomas

Beecham, who founded the RPO in 1946.

His mission was to lead a vital revival of

UK orchestras after World War II and form

an ensemble that comprised the finest musicians

in the country. The Orchestra has

since attracted a glittering list of principal

conductors, including Rudolf Kempe, Antal

Doráti, Walter Weller, André Previn, Vladimir

Ashkenazy, Yuri Temirkanov, Daniele Gatti

and Charles Dutoit.

The RPO aims to place orchestral music

at the heart of contemporary society,

collaborating with creative partners to foster

a deeper engagement with communities

to ensure that live orchestral music is

accessible to as inclusive and diverse an

audience as possible. To achieve this, in

1993 the Orchestra launched RPO Resound,

which has grown to become the most

innovative and respected orchestral community

and education programme in the UK

and internationally.

The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra has

always been entrepreneurial and in 1986 it

was the first UK orchestra to launch its own

record label. The RPO has gone on to embrace

advances in digital technology and

now achieves nearly thirty million downloads

of its recorded music each year. The

Orchestra is increasingly active online (rpo.

co.uk) and on social media (@rpoonline)

providing audiences with the opportunity to

engage with the RPO and enjoy ‘behind-thescenes’

insights.

Passion, versatility and uncompromising

artistic standards are the Royal Philharmonic

Orchestra’s hallmarks, and as it looks

forward to an exciting future with its new

Music Director, Vasily Petrenko, it will continue

to be recognised as one of the world’s

most open-minded, forward-thinking and

accessible symphony orchestras.

NOTES ON THE PROGRAM

By Julian Haylock

Four Sea Interludes from

Peter Grimes, Op.33a (1945)

Benjamin Britten (1913–1976)

I. Dawn—

II. Sunday Morning—

III. Moonlight—

IV. Storm

Benjamin Britten excelled at virtually anything

he turned his hand to. He was a virtuoso

pianist of profound interpretative insight,

an inspirational conductor, a natural

recording artist capable of exciting in the

studio the same electricity that characterised

his live concerts—and the possessor of

an exalted creative gift.

Britten spent the early part of the Second

World War in North America, where his

intimate friendship with the great British

tenor Peter Pears blossomed. Returning to

England in 1942—he composed both the

Hymn to St. Cecilia and Ceremony of Carols

during the return voyage—Britten was

exempted from military service as a conscientious

objector. It was during his time

in America that the desperately homesick

composer came across a magazine article

by E.M. Forster that began ‘To think of Crabbe

is to think of England’. This was a reference

to the writer George Crabbe whose

poem Peter Grimes (part of an 1810 collec-

Benjamin Britten

tion entitled The Borough), inspired Britten

to compose one of the finest operas of the

twentieth century.

Peter Grimes is a work of such astonishing

maturity and profound emotional resource

that it is easy to overlook the fact

that Britten was still only thirty-one years of

age at the time of its 1945 premiere. The

parallels between the central figure, a roughand-ready

Suffolk fisherman vilified by an

uncomprehending society when his apprentice

is lost at sea, and Britten’s view of his

own station in life are startlingly realised.

Desperate to raise the money to marry Ellen

17 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


and in his rush to avoid a party of aggressive

villagers, Grimes later finds himself responsible

for the accidental death of a second

boy, goes mad and commits suicide.

Keen to promote his latest masterpiece,

Britten extracted four orchestral interludes

that punctuate the main action of the opera,

and conducted the first performance at the

Cheltenham Festival on 13 June 1945, just

six days after the opera’s premiere at the

Sadler’s Wells Theatre in London.

The mist-laden stirrings of a new dawn

are magically conjured up by Britten, the

slowly illuminated seascape serving as a

bleak backdrop to the early-morning fisherman

gathering their nets. The French horns

announce the second section, a peaceful

evocation of a village Sunday morning as

everyone makes their way to church. The

music moves almost imperceptibly on to

the same scene lit by moonlight, the magical

scoring for bassoons, French horns and

strings creating an indelible impression of

stillness before the storm breaks, throwing

the raging sea into utter turmoil, punctuated

by torrential outbursts from the brass

and French horns.

Piano Concerto No.1 in

B-flat Minor, Op.23 (1874)

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky (1840–1893)

I. Allegro non troppo e molto maestoso—

Allegro con spirito

II. Andante semplice

III. Allegro con fuoco

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky

Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky spent most of his

life attempting to reconcile the scorching

inspiration and confidence of his finest music

with a sensitive nature overwhelmed by

insecurity and anxiety. His emotional intuitiveness

was to prove both a blessing and

a curse, for while it helped facilitate some

of the most treasurable music of the Romantic

era, the lukewarm and occasionally

downright hostile reception that greeted

many of his finest scores often resulted in

periods of creative paralysis.

He was constantly plagued by selfdoubts

about his music’s true worth. Time

and time again his correspondence reveals

the repeated cycle of surging confidence

during the composition period—‘this will

18 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


e my greatest work so far’—followed by a

corresponding dip in mood during which he

would invariably insist that his talent had

‘dried up’, or that he was ‘played out’.

Tchaikovsky began work on his B-flat

minor Piano Concerto in November 1874

and, fired by a seemingly unstoppable flow

of blinding inspiration, had it completed

within the month. Understandably excited

by his new creation, he played it through to

his friend, the distinguished pianist and pedagogue

Nikolai Rubinstein (the Concerto’s

intended dedicatee), who promptly tore the

score to shreds: ‘It appeared that my concerto

was worthless,’ ranted Tchaikovsky,

‘that it was unplayable, that the passagework

was so commonplace, unskilfully written

and awkward that it would be impossible

to put it right; that the composition itself

was bad and trivial; that I had stolen this bit

from here and that bit from there; that were

only two or three pages worth keeping, and

that the rest would have to be scrapped or

completely rewritten.’ To his eternal credit,

Tchaikovsky changed not one single note.

The Concerto was eventually premiered

in Boston, and such was its resounding success

that even Rubinstein quickly admitted

his initial error of judgement, and played

no small part in establishing Tchaikovsky’s

early reputation by taking the work on a celebrated

world tour. In a letter to his patron,

Nadezhda von Meck, Tchaikovsky revealingly

summed up his thoughts on the Concerto:

‘It is a struggle between two forces

of equal standing... a powerful orchestra,

commanding inexhaustible resources

of tone colour, against which the small,

inconspicuous, but intelligent opponent

pits its all and triumphs—provided the pianist

is talented!’

Variations on an Original Theme,

"Enigma," Op.36 (1898-1899)

Edward Elgar (1857–1934)

I. Theme

II.

CAE (Var.1)

III. HDS-P (Var.2)

IV. RBT (Var.3)

V. WMB (Var.4)

VI. RPA (Var.5)

VII. Ysobel (Var.6)

VIII. Troyte (Var.7)

IX. WN (Var.8)

X. Nimrod (Var.9)

XI. Dorabella (Var.10)

XII. GRS (Var.11)

XIII. BGN (Var.12)

XIV. ***(Var.13)

XV. EDU (Var.14)

Edward Elgar’s output during the 1890s,

save for the delightful Serenade for Strings

(1892), was dominated by choral music, including

the two oratorios, The Black Knight,

and The Light of Life. Despite their relative

success, Elgar still urgently sought the recognition

that could only be won by an indisputable

masterpiece. In 1899 he effectively

hit the jackpot with his Variations on an

Original Theme ("Enigma"), the instant success

of which ensured that he went into the

19 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


new century an international celebrity.

The Variations are in effect a series of

character portraits dedicated ‘To my friends

pictured within’. Elgar began the work with

the most humorous of intentions: ‘I’ve written

what I think they [his friends] would

have written, if they were asses enough to

compose.’ Yet, as he later pointed out, he

‘continued in deep seriousness’. Not all is

deep introspection, however, as is hilariously

illustrated by Elgar's tone-deaf architect

friend’s valiant attempts at playing the

piano (Variation 7, Troyte Griffith), and his

fond portrait of George Robertson Sinclair’s

bulldog (Variation 11) as it falls in the River

Wye and scrambles to get back out again.

Hew David Steuart-Powell’s habit of running

his fingers over the piano keys as a prelude

to chamber music sessions with Elgar and

friends is also gently sent-up in Variation 2.

The more cryptic headings for each

variation were successfully decoded long

ago—the ravishing Nimrod variation (No.9),

for example, alludes to Elgar’s publisher at

Novello, August Jaeger (‘Jaeger’ in German

means ‘hunter’, hence the reference to the

Biblical ‘Nimrod’). Variation 13 is marked

purely with asterisks, and many now believe

that they refer to one Helen Weaver, a music

student to whom Elgar was once engaged

and utterly heartbroken at losing. Elgar

and his wife also make appearances at

opposite ends of the work: Variation 1 is

headed C.A.E. (Caroline Alice Elgar), and

the rip-roaring finale (Variation 14) E.D.U.

(Elgar himself).

Rather more perplexing is the ‘Enigma’

Edward Elgar

of the title which refers to a theme that apparently

forms a ‘silent counterpoint’ to

the one we actually hear at the beginning.

Auld lang syne and God Save the Queen are

particular favourites, although recent years

have witnessed a whole series of ingenious

solutions. Elgar himself left us almost totally

in the dark: ‘The Enigma I will not explain

—its “dark saying” must be left unguessed,

and I warn you that the apparent connexion

between the Variations and the Theme is often

of the slightest texture; further, through

and over the whole set, another and larger

theme “goes” but is not played.’

I

t was March 6, 2020 when we last gathered together at the Granada Theatre

and CAMA was presenting an historic concert in celebration of the 100th

anniversary of the first concert by the Los Angeles Philharmonic in Santa

Barbara. It was a marvelous occasion—then the COVID‐19 pandemic hit only a few days

later and concerts state- and nationwide were cancelled.

Following the longest period of “dark stages”—19 months!—in CAMA's long history,

we were at last able to present a special performance by Les Violons du Roy with

mandolinist Avi Avital on October 19, 2021 at the Lobero Theatre. Not even World War II

had caused such a prolonged interruption of CAMA’s live performances. We were thrilled

that so many of our patrons were able to join us for the “welcome back” performance.

We are all so delighted to be back in our theaters, continuing CAMA's long tradition of

bringing the world’s finest classical artists to everyone in our community.

CAMA's Board of Directors and staff thank you all who have supported CAMA over these

past two years. Your heart-warming and generous support has enabled us to come

through the past many months carrying the bright torch of our mission to bring the

finest in classical music to our community. We are most sincerely grateful.
