  • About the Program:

- STRAVINSKY: The Song of the Nightingale

Igor Stravinsky worked on his first opera, Le Rossignol (The Nightingale) based on Hans Christian Andersen’s oriental fairy tale, between 1908 and 1914. It was a period that encompassed his pre- and post Rite of Spring years, which were interrupted by many other projects. In 1917 Stravinsky recast portions of the opera as a symphonic poem. The music’s exotic atmosphere derives from his use of the pentatonic scale (the pitches of a piano’s black keys) and the vibrant color palette so familiar from his first ballet hit, The Firebird.

- MOZART: Bassoon Concerto

“It’s a gem!” That’s the enthusiastic opinion of New York Philharmonic Principal Bassoon Judith LeClair when speaking of Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto, in which she is the soloist. “It’s a work whose expressive qualities make it exceptional. It’s not a flashy showpiece — the fingers are the least important aspect of playing the Concerto. The estimate of how many bassoon concertos Mozart actually composed ranges up to five, but the present score is the only surviving one. And because the solo bassoon literature is somewhat limited, it is a work that bassoonists treasure and by which they are judged in auditions.

- ZEMLINSKY: The Mermaid, Fantasy for Orchestra

Misfortune seemed to haunt the life of Alexander Zemlinsky, but composing may have served as therapy for at least one heartbreak: his unrequited love for Alma Schindler (later Alma Mahler Gropius Werfel). The Viennese beauty was one of his composition students as well as the object of his affections. She did not reciprocate his feelings; in fact, she called him “a hideous gnome.” She rejected him in favor of Gustav Mahler, whom she married in 1902. It has been suggested that composing The Mermaid was Zemlinsky’s way of dealing with this trauma, and that he saw himself as the title character and Alma as the prince. The 40-minute, three-movement symphonic poem is based on Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytale “The Little Mermaid,” about a mermaid who falls in love with a young prince after saving him from a shipwreck.
