CAMA fondly remembers Andre Meir Saltoun,

former Board Director and Director Emeritus,

who was cherished by the Community Arts

Music Association community. Andre joined

the CAMA Board in 2005 and served for

14 years, including as President from 2012

through 2015.

Born in Iraq and fluent in French, Arabic

and English, a teacher encouraged Andre to

pursue higher education in the United States.

Andre undertook a harrowing journey which

included traveling on a coal boat filled with

unsavory characters from France to Texas.

A loan from a boat officer enabled Andre to

get to the East Coast where bridge games

and washing dishes paid for his successful

completion of an undergraduate degree at

the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Andre attended the University of

Wisconsin Law School where he served as

managing editor of the Wisconsin Law Review.

Upon graduation, he accepted an offer at the

first and only international law firm at the

time, Baker & McKenzie in Chicago. Given

his language skills and counsel to American

and French multinationals, Andre worked

closely with another senior partner, Christine

Lagarde of Baker & McKenzie, Paris, who currently

serves as President of the European

Central Bank. Andre was awarded the French

Legion of Honor in 1975, the highest decoration

awarded to a civilian by France, for the

many years he served as legal counsel to the

French government in Chicago.

In the late 1980s Andre moved to San

Francisco where he met his wife, Michele. As

they looked forward to Andre’s retirement in

2005, the couple chose Montecito as their

home. Andre enjoyed an active life in Santa

Barbara that included memberships at the

Santa Barbara Polo and Racquet Club and

Birnam Wood Golf Club. While Andre served

as an officer and member of numerous committees

during his years on the CAMA Board,

perhaps his greatest contribution was in

skillfully guiding the process by which CAMA

decided to move our International Series

from the Arlington Theatre to the newly renovated

Granada Theatre in 2008.

Andre passed away peacefully at his

Montecito home in July 2020 with his wife,

Michele, by his side.

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 LA

Phil—recognized as one of the world’s outstanding

orchestras—is leading the way in

groundbreaking and diverse programming,

on stage and in the community, that reflects

the orchestra’s artistry and demonstrates

its vision. 2021/22 marks the orchestra’s

103rd season.

More than 250 concerts are either performed

or presented by the LA Phil at its

three iconic venues: the Frank Gehry-designed

Walt Disney Concert Hall, The Ford,

and the famed Hollywood Bowl. During its

winter season at Walt Disney Concert Hall,

with approximately 165 performances, the

LA Phil creates festivals, artist residencies,

and other thematic programs designed to

enhance the audience’s experience of orchestral

music. Since 1922, its summer

home has been the world-famous Hollywood

Bowl, host to the finest artists from

all genres of music. Situated in a 32-acre

park and under the stewardship of the LA

Phil since December 2019, The Ford presents

an eclectic summer season of music,

dance, film, and family events that are reflective

of the communities that comprise

Los Angeles.

“So far ahead of other American orchestras

that it is in competition mainly with its own

past achievements.” —The New Yorker’s Alex Ross

Angeles extends far beyond the concert

hall, with wide-ranging performances in the

schools, churches, and neighborhood centers

of a vastly diverse community. Among

its influential and multifaceted learning initiatives

is YOLA (Youth Orchestra Los Angeles),

inspired by Venezuela’s revolutionary

El Sistema. Through YOLA, the LA Phil and

its community partners provide free instruments,

intensive music instruction, and

leadership training to nearly 1,300 students

from underserved neighborhoods, empowering

them to become vital citizens, leaders,

and agents of change. In fall of 2021, YOLA

opened its own permanent, purpose-built

facility: The Judith and Thomas L. Beckmen

YOLA Center at Inglewood, designed by architect

Frank Gehry.

The orchestra also undertakes tours,

both domestically and internationally, including

regular visits to New York, London

(where the orchestra is the Barbican Centre’s

International Orchestral Partner), Paris,

and Tokyo. As part of its global Centennial

activities, the orchestra visited Seoul, Tokyo,

Mexico City, London, Boston, and New

York. The LA Phil’s first tour was in 1921,

and the orchestra has made annual tours

since the 1969/70 season.

The LA Phil has released an array of critically

acclaimed audio recordings, including

world premieres of the music of John

Adams and Louis Andriessen, along with

Grammy ® Award-winning recordings featuring

the music of Johannes Brahms, Charles

Ives, and Andrew Norman. Deutsche Grammophon

has released a comprehensive box

set in honor of the orchestra’s Centennial.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic was

founded in 1919 by William Andrews Clark,

Jr., a wealthy amateur musician. Walter

Henry Rothwell became its first Music Director,

serving until 1927; since then, 10

renowned conductors have served in that

capacity. Their names are: Georg Schnéevoigt

(1927–1929); Artur Rodziński (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).

IGOR LEVIT

piano

Photo by Robbie Lawrence

With an alert and critical mind, Igor Levit

places his art in the context of social events

and understands it as inseparably linked to

them. The New York Times describes him

as one of the “most important artists of his

generation.” Igor Levit is Musical America’s

“Recording Artist of the Year 2020” and the

2018 Gilmore Artist. In November 2020, he

was nominated for a Grammy Award in the

Best Classical Instrumental Solo category.

As a recitalist, Igor Levit regularly performs

at the world’s most renowned concert

halls and festivals. He is a regular

soloist with the world’s leading orchestras

such as the Berlin Philharmonic, the Cleveland

Orchestra, the Gewandhausorchester

Leipzig, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra,

and the Vienna Philharmonic. Igor Levit’s

upcoming schedule includes concerts

in Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York,

Amsterdam, Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris,

Vienna, and Tokyo. In 2022, the artist premieres

a new piano concerto written for him

by William Bolcom as well as a solo piece

written for him by jazz pianist Fred Hersch.

In spring 2021, Igor Levit and the Lucerne

Festival announced a multi-year collaboration

for a new piano festival he will curate

starting in 2023.

14 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


Classical, Igor Levit made his label debut

with the highly acclaimed 2019 recording

of the 32 Beethoven Sonatas, which

earned him the Gramophone Artist of the

Year Award as well as the Opus Klassik

in autumn 2020. His next album Encounter

followed in September 2020. Recorded

during the lockdown in spring 2020, it is a

deeply personal album marked by a desire

for human encounter and togetherness.

The program includes rarely heard arrangements

of Bach and Brahms by Ferruccio

Busoni and Max Reger, as well as “Palais de

Mari”—Morton Feldman’s final work for piano.

Igor Levit’s latest release is a double album

featuring Shostakovich’s 24 Preludes

and Fugues, Op.87, and Ronald Stevenson’s

“Passacaglia on DSCH.” The artwork

for this album has been specially created

by the internationally renowned artist and

graphic designer Christoph Niemann, who

regularly illustrates for The New Yorker and

The New York Times.

Born in Nizhny Novgorod, Igor Levit

moved to Germany with his family at the

age of eight. He completed his piano studies

at Musikhochschule Hannover with the

highest score in the history of the institute.

His teachers included Karl-Heinz Kämmerling,

Matti Raekallio, Bernd Goetzke, Lajos

Rovatkay, and Hans Leygraf. Igor Levit was

the youngest participant in the 2005 International

Arthur Rubinstein Competition in

Tel Aviv, where he won the silver medal, the

special prize for chamber music, the audience

prize, and the special prize for best

performance of contemporary pieces. In

spring 2019, he was appointed professor of

piano at his alma mater, the University of

Music, Theater, and Media Hanover.

For his political commitment, Igor Levit

has been awarded the Fifth International

Beethoven Prize in 2019, followed by his

receipt of the “Statue B” from the International

Auschwitz Committee in January

2020. His 53 live house concerts, Twitterstreamed

during the lockdown in spring

2020, garnered a worldwide audience, offering

a sense of community and hope in

a time of isolation and desperation. In October

2020, Igor Levit was recognized with

the Order of Merit of the Federal Republic

of Germany. In spring 2021, Hanser published

Igor Levit’s first book, House Concert,

co-authored by Florian Zinnecker. In Berlin,

where he makes his home, Igor Levit is

playing on a Steinway D Grand Piano kindly

given to him by the Trustees of Independent

Opera at Sadler’s Wells.

Igor Levit is an exclusive recording artist

of Sony Classical.

In Song of the Universal, Walt Whitman

wrote, “Over the mountain growths, disease

and sorrow, / An uncaught bird is ever hovering,

hovering, / High in the purer, happier

air. / From imperfection’s murkiest cloud, /

Darts always forth one ray of perfect light, /

One flash of heaven’s glory.”

Gavin Pretor-Pinney notes in his book

The Cloudspotter’s Guide that, “[a]lthough

cloudspotting is an activity best undertaken

with time on your hands, it is something

that everyone can enjoy. Clouds are the

most egalitarian of nature’s displays, since

each one of us has a good view of them, so

it really doesn’t matter where you are.”

At the Shakespeare & Co. bookshop in Paris

hangs a handwritten sign that reads, “Some

people call me the Don Quixote of the Latin

Quarter because my head is so far up in the

clouds that I can imagine all of us are angels

in paradise.”

Georgia O’Keeffe was perpetually captivated

by the sky. To her friend, photographer

Anita Pollitzer, she wrote: “The Eastern sky

was all grey blue—bunches of clouds—different

kinds of clouds—sticking around ev-

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE • LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC

17


erywhere and the whole thing—lit up—first

in one place—then in another with flashes

of lightning—sometimes just sheet lightning—and

sometimes sheet lightning with

a sharp bright zigzag flashing across it—I

walked out past the last house—past the

last locust tree—and sat on the fence for

a long time—looking—just looking—at the

lightning—you see there was nothing but

sky and flat prairie land—land that seems

more like the ocean than anything else I

know—There was a wonderful moon. Well,

I just sat there and had a great time all by

myself—Not even many night noises—just

the wind—”

In the 1960s, O’Keeffe painted her Sky

Above Clouds series which was inspired by

the new visual perspective provided by the

burgeoning commercial flight industry. Her

largest canvas, Sky Above Clouds IV, hangs

in the Art Institute of Chicago.

This sampling of thoughts, visited again

and again, rests behind Cloudline, my musical

offering to the infinite canon of cloudinspired

musings. At the center of the

piece is a repeating chord progression (or

cloud progression as I came to think of it)

that is derived from a sequence of delicate

clarinet multiphonics (two or more tones

produced simultaneously). Though the

progression morphs, fractures, and reconstitutes

itself in sometimes unrecognizable

ways over the course of the work’s 13

minutes, it remains an ever-present guide.

This treatment of musical material follows

in the footsteps of other works including

the Lament from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas

and the last movement of Brahms’ Fourth

Symphony, in which expansive, dynamic

music unfolds against quite humble repeating

bass lines.

While writing Cloudline, I started watching

the BBC show Killing Eve. A few episodes

in, I had this comical image of a decadently

clad Villanelle, the show’s feral and

mercurial assassin, swinging giddily from

cloud to cloud as she prepared to pounce

on her next victim. As fate would have it,

Stokowski’s arrangement of Dido’s Lament

came to feature quite prominently in the

third season of the show, as did the Royal

Albert Hall itself. It struck me as oddly and

hilariously serendipitous, given the very origins

of this piece.

Cloudline came to be during our year and a

half at home. As is perhaps evident from the

strange collection of untethered threads,

half-thoughts, and non sequiturs that have

woven this lyrical hurricane of a piece into

existence, it seems, in retrospect, to be an

expression of the tempestuous and bizarre

texture of life during those trying yet often

tender 16 months.

18 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


Ludwig van Beethoven

Piano Concerto No.3

in C Minor, Op.37

Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)

Composed: 1803

Duration: c.34 minutes

Orchestration: 2 flutes, 2 oboes,

2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns,

2 trumpets, timpani, strings, and solo piano

First Los Angeles Philharmonic

performance: January 29, 1926, Walter

Henry Rothwell conducting, with pianist

Mischa Levitzki

The composer introduced his Concerto in C

Minor at one of those massive all-Beethoven

benefits—with Beethoven as beneficiary—

which continues to boggle the mind two

centuries after the fact. The date was April

5, 1803, in the Theater an der Wien, the program

offering three premieres: the present

work, the Second Symphony, and the oratorio

Christ on the Mount of Olives, as well as

a reprise of the First Symphony, first heard

a year earlier.

According to Beethoven’s pupil Ferdinand

Ries, the rehearsal—the only rehearsal

for the entire concert—began at 8 a.m.

and was a shambles. The orchestra was

the Viennese second-string, the city’s best

players having been hired by a competing

presenter for a performance of Haydn’s Creation

that same evening. “[It] was frightful,”

Ries recalled. “At half past two, everyone

CAMA AT THE GRANADA THEATRE • LOS ANGELES PHILHARMONIC

19


was exhausted and dissatisfied. Prince Karl

Lichnowsky [one of Beethoven’s patrons],

who was at the rehearsal from its beginning,

sent out for large baskets of buttered

bread, cold meats, and wine. He invited all

the musicians to help themselves, which

they did heartily, and a collegial atmosphere

was restored.”

The score of the Concerto was not finished

by the time of the rehearsal, and indeed

it remained a work in progress during

the performance, as was noted by another

Beethoven pupil, Ignaz von Seyfried, who

considered himself fortunate to have been

chosen by Beethoven as his page-turner. “I

saw empty pages with here and there what

looked like Egyptian hieroglyphs, totally unintelligible

to me, scribbled to serve as clues

for him. He played nearly all of his part from

memory, since, obviously, he had put so

little on paper. So, whenever he reached the

end of some invisible passage, he gave me

a surreptitious nod and I turned the page.

My anxiety not to miss such a nod amused

him greatly and the recollection of it at our

convivial dinner after the concert sent him

into gales of laughter.”

The C-minor Concerto had a second

“premiere” in Vienna a year later, from

the finished manuscript—presumably

without hieroglyphs—when the honor of

playing it was given to Ferdinand Ries by

the composer.

The Concerto bridges the divide between

Beethoven’s two earlier, more clearly

Mozart-derived concertos and a more personal

style, while simultaneously showing

a keen awareness of Mozart’s most

Beethoven-like concerto, K.491, in the same

key of C minor. Both open with the strings

softly playing an ascending figure, the winds

gradually joining in for the first climax.

A thematic fragment—C, E-flat, A-flat—of

the theme of the Mozart K.491 first movement

is stated by the low strings in the

ninth measure of the Beethoven. Most

strikingly, as Charles Rosen has noted,

Beethoven’s solo arpeggios in his coda recall

portions of Mozart’s in his work. But

here, the ferocious C-minor runs with which

the piano subsequently enters are purest

Beethovenian drama.

The slow movement is an oasis of

calm amid the agitated outer movements,

with the songful expanse of piano melody

accompanied by muted strings, after which

the piano arpeggios curl around the theme,

now stated by strings and woodwinds.

There follows a magical passage where

piano arpeggios accompany a duet for bassoon

and flute.

The rondo finale, in C minor again, has

plenty of spirit but also a good deal of tension

and the full bag of Beethoven tricks: a

second theme, announced by the clarinet,

whereupon the principal theme is transformed

into a fugue whose conclusion signals

the return of C minor. But no, it ascends

a semitone to A-flat (an old Haydn trick),

and then the piano wanders to E major,

which may be far from A-flat but not from

the slow movement of this very Concerto.

–Herbert Glass

20 CAMA'S 103 RD CONCERT SEASON


Symphony No.4 in A Major,

“Italian,” Op.90

Felix Mendelssohn (1809–1847)

Composed: 1833

Duration: c.27 minutes

Orchestration: 2 flutes, 2 oboes,

2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns,

2 trumpets, timpani, and strings

First Los Angeles Philharmonic

performance: July 24, 1930, Bernardino

Molinari conducting

Mendelssohn went to Italy in October 1830.

The trip lasted 10 months—he started in

Venice and worked his way south to Rome,

stopping in Bologna and Florence along

the way. During his stay in Rome, he witnessed

the coronation of Pope Pius VIII and

the city’s festivities during Holy Week (the

week leading up to Easter). From Rome, he

went on to Naples and visited Pompeii before

returning to Germany through Genoa

and Milan.

His impressions of the trip were recorded

in a series of watercolors and sketches—Mendelssohn

was a decent amateur

artist—and in the present Symphony. There

is nothing particularly Italian about the symphony

until its final movement. Rather, the

work strives more to convey a series of impressions

of Italy—Mediterranean sunshine,

religious solemnity, monumental art and architecture,

and open countryside.

The symphony opens with a burst of

sound—woodwinds and pizzicato strings—

whose irrepressible eighth notes become

the accompaniment to a jubilant string

melody. The winds play an especially prominent

role in this movement, with Mendelssohn

treating them with a great degree of

freedom that gives the movement a transparent,

airy texture. It’s like a musical rendition

of the Italian blue sky that impressed

Mendelssohn, who was used to the cloudflecked

skies of northern Europe, so deeply

(he once described the symphony as “blue

sky in A major”). The movement is in sonata

form, but it also uniquely includes a transitional

passage between the exposition and

its repeat whose material is developed later

on. The turbulent minor-key development

section also may remind the listener that

Mendelssohn was working on his stormcloud-riddled

“Scottish” Symphony (in A minor)

at the same time he was composing

the “Italian.”

In the second movement, an andante

con moto in D minor, Mendelssohn recalls

the impressive processions he had witnessed

during his time in Rome. He evokes

these with a dusky melody (oboes, clarinets,

and violas) that unfolds over a plodding

bassline. This alternates with two contrasting,

relaxed, major-key sections.

The flowing minuet (con moto moderato),

with its legato writing for stings and

winds, offers a musical equivalent of the

symmetrical forms and restrained beauty of

some of the architecture Mendelssohn saw

during his Italian sojourn. The trio sounds

vaguely militaristic, with its fanfare-like melodic

figure for horns and bassoons.

In the finale, Mendelssohn uses another

dance, the raucous Neapolitan

saltarello, as the basis of the movement. He

never relaxes the tension during the movement,

which hurtles to a close with a minor-key

reiteration of the first movement’s

opening theme.

Mendelssohn completed the symphony

on March 13, 1833, in partial fulfillment of

a commission from the Philharmonic Society

of London. He conducted the premiere

exactly two months later, on May 13, which

was a great success—the work was repeated

in June. Mendelssohn, however, was never

entirely satisfied with the symphony. He

revised it twice, in 1837 and again before he

died in 1847, but it was never published during

his lifetime. This final version premiered

in Leipzig on November 1, 1849, with Julius

Rietz conducting the Gewandhaus Orchestra.

It is this version that was published in

1851 and is regularly performed today.

Presenting the world’s finest classical artists since 1919

I

t was March 6, 2020 when we 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 worldwide 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.
