DETROIT, (Feb. 12, 2010) – The Detroit Symphony Orchestra (DSO) announced today programming for its 2010-11 Classical Subscription Series and an extension of Music Director Leonard Slatkin’s contract another two years through the 2012-13 season. 

Thus demonstrating his commitment to the orchestra, its audiences and the communities of metro Detroit, Slatkin made adjustments in compensation and will contribute conducting and community weeks without pay.  He emphasized that it is the spirit and excellence of the DSO musicians and the support of its audiences and administration that led him to make an extended commitment.

“Over the course of my early tenure with the Detroit Symphony, I have come to love everything that this organization represents.  We have great musicians, a great hall and a great team of hard working staff and board.  It is vitally important that every component do as much as possible to insure the continuing excellence of the musical experience.  The pleasure of making music for and with everyone is beyond description, and so I am more than pleased to extend my contract with the DSO.”

“This extension exemplifies Leonard’s true strength as an institutional leader and his dedication to our collective pursuit of a bright and successful future for the DSO.  I am thrilled on behalf of the metro Detroit community that the DSO’s work will continue to be inspired and supported through Leonard’s confirmed and extended commitment,” said Anne Parsons, President and CEO.

Balancing his musical thinking with new and under-performed works, the 2010-11 season abounds with “the Slatkin touch,” in which audiences are exposed to a wide spectrum of exciting music, both new and familiar.

As the DSO and Slatkin enter their third season of working together, they remain committed to performing the standard repertoire at the highest level while also championing the works of contemporary composers, collaborating with stellar conductors and guest artists, expanding the reach of the orchestra through recording, and engaging audiences everywhere.

With the 2010-11 season, core repertoire will be presented in new ways, including a condensed three-week concert cycle of Beethoven’s nine symphonies, and new arrangements of well-known works, such as Prokofiev’s Cinderella Suite.  In addition, a number of concerti and symphonies will be presented to Detroit audiences for the first time, and 10 great American works of the last century will be revisited, including William Schuman’s American Festival Overture, Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town: Three Dance Episodes, and George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F. 

“Welcome to our 2010-11 season!” said Slatkin.  “With all nine Beethoven Symphonies anchoring the year, I can promise a truly exciting adventure into both familiar and unfamiliar musical worlds.  All of us at the DSO are energized by the variety of presentations and repertoire.  Please join us for this extraordinary year.”

 

SPRING BEETHOVEN CYCLE

The DSO embarks on a rare undertaking in the early days of spring 2011 when it performs all nine of Beethoven’s symphonies over the course of three successive classical subscription weekends.  This will be the first time since 1977 that the DSO has tackled all nine symphonies in a single season during such a condensed period, and it offers audiences a rare opportunity to experience these works – some of the most beloved and influential in the classical standard repertoire – in a live setting.  All concerts will be conducted by Leonard Slatkin and will also include some favorite Beethoven overtures (all three Leonore Overtures and the Fidelio Overture).  Weekend number one (Mar. 24-26) will present Symphonies 3 and 8 in the first set of concerts and Symphonies 4 and 5 in the second set; weekend number two (Apr. 8-10) will feature concerts of Symphonies 1 and 6 and Symphonies  2 and 7.  On the final weekend (Apr. 14-16), the monumental Symphony No. 9 (“Choral”) will conclude the cycle on a program that also includes selections from Beethoven’s Creatures of Prometheus.

 

MAHLER 8 – SYMPHONY OF A THOUSAND – SPECIAL

In commemoration of the 150th anniversary of Gustav Mahler’s birth and the 100th anniversary of his death, the DSO will collaborate with Michigan’s premier cultural and academic organizations (including the Michigan Opera Theatre, University Musical Society (UMS), University of Michigan and Michigan State University) to present spectacular, not-to-be-missed performances of Mahler’s monumental Symphony No. 8, also known as “Symphony of a Thousand.”   Performances will take place on Fri., March 18 at the Detroit Opera House in Detroit and on Sat., March 19 at Hill Auditorium in Ann Arbor.   These performances are specials and can be purchased in addition to a subscription to the DSO’s classical subscription series.  

 

MAJOR SYMPHONIC WORKS

In addition to the full cycle of Beethoven symphonies, the 2010-11 season will also present many other favorite works from the standard repertoire, with major pieces appearing throughout the year.  The line-up includes such crowd-pleasers as Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique (Oct. 8-10), Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 1 (Oct. 14-17), Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 (Nov. 5-7), Dvorák’s Symphony No. 9 (Nov. 11-14), Brahms’ Symphony No. 1 (Dec. 3-5), Mussorgky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (Dec. 9-11), de Falla’s Three-Cornered Hat (Feb. 17-19), Mozart’s Symphony No. 41 (Mar. 11-13), Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 (“Elvira Madigan”) (May 13-15), Ravel’s Bolero (May. 13-15), Mahler’s Symphony No. 5 (May 20-22) and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 (May 26-28), among many others.

 

WORLD, AMERICAN AND DSO PREMIERES

New music continues to be high on the DSO’s agenda under Slatkin’s guidance, and 2010-11 brings a number of premieres to Orchestra Hall.  Among these are three world premieres, all to be conducted by Slatkin: Zodiac Tales (Nov. 11-14) by Bright Sheng, one of the world’s most prolific and celebrated composers and the Leonard Bernstein Distinguished University Professor of Music at the University of Michigan; Tango Symphony by Stephen Rush (Dec. 3-5), an Associate Professor at the University of Michigan where he is director of the Digital Music Ensemble and the Music Director of the Dance Department; and as yet untitled piece by Du Yun, winner of the DSO’s fourth annual Elaine Lebenbom Memorial Award for Female Composers, whose work will be performed at the season finale concerts (May 26-28).

 Born in Shanghai, China and currently residing in New York City, Du Yun is an alumna of the Shanghai Conservatory, Oberlin Conservatory and Harvard University.  Since 2006, she has served on the composition faculty at the State University of New York Purchase and is a founding member of the critically acclaimed International Contemporary Ensemble  (I.C.E.).  Equally adept at writing for concert halls, art shows, experimental theatres and dance, her compositions can be heard on record labels Wugui (Beijing), Shanghai Classical Music and ATMA Classique.

The 2010-11 season will also present the United States premiere of Piano Concerto No. 2 by Michel Camilo (Feb. 17-19) who will continue in his second year as the DSO’s Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Jazz Creative Director Chair.  Camilo will also be the soloist in these performances.

Finally, the season will feature a number of DSO premieres including two works by Cindy McTee: Ballet for Orchestra (Oct. 14-17) and Einstein’s Dream (Jan. 21-23); a new work by Osvaldo Golijov (Nov. 5-7) in honor of Henry Fogel, the former president of the League of American Orchestras; John Williams’ Cello Concerto (Jan. 21-23) which will feature DSO principal cellist Robert deMaine; Symphony for Dreamers, Dancers and Presidents by Daniel Bernard Roumain (Mar. 4-5), commissioned by the Sphinx Commissioning Consortium; and Tangos Concertantes (May 20-22) by the Argentine composer Lalo Schifrin, a jazz and classical master whose compelling and recognizable theme for the television program “Mission Impossible” is but one example of the main remarkable works by this multi-faceted composer.

In addition to these contemporary works, the DSO will present, for the first time, three well-known works in new arrangements by the conductors that will lead them.  They include Bach’s Passacaglia arranged by Sir Andrew Davis (Nov. 26-28); Prokofiev’s Suite from Cinderella arranged by Leonard Slatkin (Jan. 21-23); and Dvorák’s Slavonic Dances by Arild Remmereit (Feb. 11-12).

 

GUEST CONDUCTORS

Leonard Slatkin will conduct the orchestra in 12 of 21 classical concert programs of the season.  During the other weeks, the DSO will welcome back a number of conductors who have become both orchestra and audience favorites, while some newcomers will make their Detroit debuts.  Returning conductors include the esteemed English maestro, Sir Andrew Davis (Nov. 26-28), leading a Thanksgiving weekend program of Debussy, Schumann and Bach; Thomas Wilkins conducting a concert dedicated to the works of Ravel and Schubert (Jan. 28-30); Arild Remmereit (Feb. 11-12), the young Norwegian conductor, leading the First Symphony by the 20th century Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů; the eminent Spanish conductor Rafael Frübeck de Burgos (Apr. 22-23), conducting the DSO in a Haydn and Mozart program; Mark Wigglesworth (May 5-7), in another visit from “over the pond,” conducting works by Wagner, Prokofiev and Sibelius; Sir Roger Norrington (May 11-13), known for his historically informed” style, leading a new Mozart-infused program and Peter Oundjian leading the DSO in an eclectic program and includes Ravel’s Bolero (May 13-15).

Making their DSO debuts next season are two young conductors who have garnered great excitement and acclaim in recent seasons.  Joana Carneiro (Nov. 5-7) is a native of Portugal who was recently named Music Director of California’s Berkeley Symphony.  She will lead the DSO in a program featuring a new work by the celebrated composer Osvaldo Golijov.  André Raphel Smith (Mar. 4-5) is the Music Director of the Wheeling Symphony in West Virginia and former Resident Conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra where he has led the orchestra in important commissioned works by Jennifer Higdon and Richard Danielpour.  He also served three years as Assistant Conductor of the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra, under Leonard Slatkin, and will conduct the DSO’s “Classical Roots” concerts next season.

 

GUEST ARTISTS

Once again, the DSO will welcome an array of soloists performing a wide spectrum of repertoire, and will also shine the spotlight on several of its own members.  Violinists include Sarah Chang (Oct. 8-10); DSO concertmaster Emmanuelle Boisvert (Nov. 26-28); DSO associate concertmaster Kimberly Kaloyanides Kennedy (Dec. 9-11); Leila Josefowicz (May 5-7); and Cho-liang Lin (May 20-22).  Pianists will include Jean-Yves Thibaudet (Dec. 3-5); Sara Davis Buechner (Dec. 9-11) in her DSO debut; Andrew von Oeyen (Jan. 28-30); Michel Camilo (Feb. 17-19); Jeremy Denk (May 13-15); and Olga Kern (May 26-28).  

Three cellists will perform as soloists with the DSO in 2010-11; Fred Zlotkin (Dec. 9-11) in his DSO debut; DSO principal cellist Robert deMaine (Jan. 21-23); and Lynn Harrell (Feb. 11-12).  In addition, DSO Principal Horn Karl Pituch will perform Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 4 (Mar. 11-13) and Xuefei Yang, a young Chinese guitarist, makes her United States orchestral debut performing Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez (Nov. 5-7), a work she has recorded and will be released in fall 2010 on the EMI label.

 

SPECIAL FILM MUSIC PROGRAM

Among the many themes included on concert programs next season is one that pulls together several intriguing elements – film music, émigré composers and family connections.  Titled “Hollywood Pictures,” (Dec. 9-11) the concert will feature works by three of the most esteemed film score composers of the 20th century, all of whom emigrated from Europe to the U.S. before World War II.  The works include Miklós Rózsa’s “Spellbound” Concerto, Franz Waxman’s arrangement of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde Fantasy, and Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s Cello Concerto.  This latter work, written for the 1946 Bette Davis film Deception, was first premiered by Eleanor Aller, the mother of Leonard Slatkin and cellist Fred Zlotkin.  In these concerts, Zlotkin will perform the work on his mother’s cello, with Slatkin conducting.

 

RECORDINGS

The new season will see a continuation of a series of recording projects which were begun with a $900,000 gift by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support Leonard Slatkin’s artistic vision for the DSO.

Since fall 2009, four DSO CDs have been released: The Melody of Rhythm (on Koch) with Béla Fleck, Zakir Hussain and Edgar Meyer, conducted by Leonard Slatkin, which was nominated for a 2009 Grammy Award; Michael Daugherty’s Motor City Triptych, Fire and Blood and Raise the Roof (Naxos), conducted by Neeme Järvi; Hannibal Lokumbe’s Dear Mrs. Parks (Naxos) an oratorio written in tribute to Rosa Parks, conducted by Thomas Wilkins; and Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 and Vocalise (Naxos) conducted by Leonard Slatkin.   A fifth Naxos release is planned for release in the summer of 2010 featuring Alla Borzova’s Songs for Lada and To the New World, both conducted by Leonard Slatkin.

                The project continues next season with several works scheduled to be recorded live. 

-          Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 1 (Oct. 14-17) and Isle of the Dead (Nov. 11-14), conducted by Leonard Slatkin, for the second CD in a planned three-CD cycle of Rachmaninoff works.

-          Cindy McTee’s Ballet for Orchestra (Oct. 14-17) and Einstein’s Dream (Jan. 21-23) conducted by Leonard Slatkin.

-          Bright Sheng’s Zodiac Tales (Nov. 11-14) conducted by Leonard Slatkin.

-          John Williams’ Cello Concerto (Jan. 21-23), with DSO principal cellist Robert deMaine, for a collection of Williams works that the DSO has been performing and recording since 2007 featuring DSO principals with Leonard Slatkin conducting.  Already recorded are Williams’ Concerto for Horn and Orchestra featuring Karl Pituch and Concerto for Violin featuring Emmanuelle Boisvert.

The public is encouraged to attend live concerts to be a part of DSO history as it is made. 

 

NEW AUDIENCES

Continuing the DSO’s longstanding commitment to community engagement, the orchestra will again travel outside of Detroit to connect with other areas of Michigan and will perform a concert featuring Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique on Oct. 7 at the Wharton Center in East Lansing on the campus of Michigan State University. 

The DSO also plans to continue its popular “Your DSO in Your Community” free concert series at various Michigan venues.  Plans for 2010-11 free concerts and other appearances will be announced in the coming months.

The DSO and Leonard Slatkin will continue another popular initiative launched in 2009 titled, “DSO Overtime,” which consists of informal Friday-night post-concert discussions with Leonard Slatkin that allow audiences to ask questions and become more familiar with the music being performed and the artists creating it.
