Alberto Ginastera 100th birthday concert - 7:30 pm
210 Yale SE
Albuquerque, NM 87106
United States
505-268-0044
Price: $20/15 (Members, students)

Co-presented with the UNM Music from the Americas Concert Series 

Ginastera: Suite de Danzas Criollas, Tres Piezas, Doce Preludios Americanos (Alejandro Cremaschi, piano)

Ernesto Nazareth: Brejeiro

Heitor Villa-Lobos: Alma Brasileira, Saudades das Selvas Americanas

Miguel del Águila: Sonata 2 (Fred Sturm, piano)

Ginastera was a quintessentially nationalistic composer, trying to capture the essence of his native Argentina , with its rolling pampas and cultivated cities, its rough and wild folk dances and its sophisticated tangos.  His music is written in an exhilarating style, ranging from delicately seductive lyricism, though driving complex cross rhythms, to massive climaxes.  

Argentine pianist Alejandro Cremaschi will present a sampling of Ginastera’s masterful writing for piano, including three of his nationalistic piano sets: Suite of Creole Dances, Three Pieces, and Twelve American Preludes. Cremaschi’s new edition of Ginastera's 12 Preludios Americanos, which includes his recording of the set, will be released later this year by Fischer Publishing Company, and he will be presenting them to the College Music Society convention in Santa Fe on Sunday, October 30. 

Local pianist Fred Sturm will provide context for Ginastera’s very “Argentine” style of composition, by performing music of predecessors and successors from neighboring countries Brazil and Uruguay.  Heitor Villa-Lobos was a pioneer of nationalistic Latin American music, and a close friend of the younger Ginastera, whom Villa-Lobos referred to as his “spiritual heir.” Sturm will play Villa-Lobos’ Alma Brasileira and Saudades das Selvas Brasileiras. 

Ginastera in turn inspired later generations of composers, including Miguel del Águila of Uruguay (familiar to many in Albuquerque as the composer of the opera Time and Again Barelas, commissioned for the Albuquerque tricentennial). Sturm will perform Águila’s Sonata #2, inspired by popular Latin American styles. 

Pianist Alejandro Cremaschi, a native of Argentina, currently teaches at the University of Colorado at Boulder. His playing has been described as “pristine” and “passionate” by the Washington Post, and “polished” and “exemplary” by the Fanfare magazine. Praised as an intelligent and sensitive pianist, he has played in numerous cities worldwide, including Buenos Aires, Guadalajara, Montreal, Pittsburgh, London, Washington, Kuala Lumpur and New York. Fred Sturm has specialized in Latin American music for the past 25 years, performing and recording a wide repertory, with a particular emphasis on Villa-Lobos and Mexican composer Federico Ibarra. Peter Burwasser wrote of Sturm’s recording of Ibarra’s works for piano solo, "He plays the music of Ibarra as if he were writing it on the spot. It is rare to hear a musician so inhabited by the material."

Keller Hall
Las Cantantes - 5:00 pm
University of New Mexico
Albuquerque, NM 87106

Concert will include Villa-Lobos' Quarteto Symbolico, for flute, saxophone, harp and celeste, with women's voices. This seldom heard work is one of Villa-Lobos' masterpieces, an extraordinary work for an unusual combination of instruments, creating unforgetable timbres.

Villa-Lobos was obviously very proud of this piece, as he presented it during the "Week of Modern Art" in São Paulo in 1921, at a concert devoted to his works, and later at other important concerts where he was trying to establish his reputation internationally. He took it to Paris in 1924, and presented it together with Noneto at the very first all Villa-Lobos outside Brazil, and later had it performed in the United States in 1941 at a Brazilian exhibition, again paired with Noneto. Neither the Quartet nor Noneto have been released on record with the exception of a single recording made in the 1950's, and performances are rare, despite the fact that these pieces are among his very best works.

Price: $20/15

Fred Sturm, solo piano: "Paris - Rio, 1920"

Music of Nazareth, Milhaud, and Villa-Lobos

Local pianist Fred Sturm will take you to Rio in the years just before 1920, when three composers crossed paths there. At that time, Rio de Janeiro had a vibrant popular musical tradition, a mixture of European and African influences called choro. At the center of that tradition was a pianist/composer named Ernesto Nazareth, whose 150th birthday we celebrate this year. He left a rich legacy of pieces he called Tangos Brasileiros, which captured the essence of the choro style. 

Darius Milhaud, a cultivated French composer, visited Rio for two years during World War I, and was entranced by the musical scene there, where he heard Nazareth play. He tried to translate the flavor of the musical style in his dance suite, Saudades do Brazil, giving the rhythms and melodic patterns a European flavor by adding polytonal harmony, and presenting this music to Parisian audiences. 

Heitor Villa-Lobos was an aspiring composer who made his living performing in the choro style, and who sometimes played with Nazareth. He sought success as a classical composer, writing music that was initially similar to what was being written in France at the time, later adding Brazilian flavor. He took his music to Paris in the 1920s, where he soon achieved an international reputation.

This concert will present several of Nazareth's Tangos Brasileiros, paired with Milhaud's Saudades do Brazil. It will also feature two suites of Villa-Lobos, written at precisely the time Milhaud was in Brazil. Suite Floral has a very European flavor to it, though it has many elements that suggest a composer with a very individualistic personality. A Prole do Bebê sounds like it was written by a completely different composer, with some harmonic and melodic elements derived from Debussy (principally whole tone scales) set against very Brazilian rhythms. It was this suite in particular that launched Villa-Lobos international success, when Arthur Rubenstein began programming it on his concerts.

Fred Sturm specializes in the piano music of Latin America, with a special emphasis on Heitor Villa-Lobos. He has performed regularly in the Albuquerque area and beyond for the past three decades, and has recorded six CDs to date, most recently Federico Ibarra, Music for Piano. His CDs have recently received favorable reviews in Fanfare Magazine, with Michael Cameron writing (March, 2012), "It’s safe to say that his surveys of Latin American, American, and Spanish music have earned him well-deserved prominence in this corner of the vast keyboard literature." Peter Burwasser wrote (March 2013), "He plays the music of Ibarra as if he were writing it on the spot. It is rare to hear a musician so inhabited by the material. Sturm has played the piano his entire life, but did not have a typical conservatory training. Nevertheless, the technique he displays here can be astonishing, especially in his ability to draw out all of the inner voicings in the music, even as they are layered across a huge dynamic range. . . For the listener, this music can be challenging and even strange, but as an example of extraordinary artistry at the service of bold, iconoclastic music, this is a powerful release."

Trio for Oboe, Clarinet and Bassoon is very similar in character to the later series of thirteen pieces under the name Choros. It is written in an improvisatory style, with strong rhythmic emphasis, and each instrument contributes equally to an interchange in which all three instruments play all roles, seamlessly moving from background accompaniment to melodic foreground and back. At times the three instruments seem to be almost entirely independent of one another, while at others they are closely synchronized. The piece, like much of Villa-Lobos’ output, demands a high level virtuosity of the performers, and explores the timbres and effects possible on each instrument as well as in combination. The structure of the movements is very intuitive, moving from theme to theme and from texture to texture in a very natural and organic manner, without reference to any of the classical forms.

Suite Floral was written as three separate pieces, later put together. The second movement was written first, in 1916, and consists of a melody in 6/8 over an accompaniment figure in 5/8. The melody is played mostly on the black keys, while the accompaniment is on the white keys, a devise common in many of Villa-Lobos’ piano works. The first movement, written in 1917, is impressionistic in character, evoking the swaying of a hammock, with freely associating melodic ideas developing and transforming in a roughly sonata-like form. The last movement, written in 1918, has a very characteristic Villa-Lobos sound that derives from the color produced by various pianistic effects. This exuberant movement is often played by itself, and has long been very popular with pianists and audiences in Brazil.

String Quartet #5 was written during a time when Villa-Lobos was concentrating on Brazilian folk material, which he later used as the basis for the music education system he created and managed for the entire country of Brazil for two decades. The various melodies in the first movement (the only movement to be performed on this concert) also appear in Cirandinhas for piano, written in the early 1920s. These rather simple children’s song tunes are each given a very colorful setting, making this one of Villa-Lobos’ most popular quartets.

Choros #3 was written after Villa-Lobos’ first stay in Paris, in preparation for his second trip there. He had found that music with a “Brazilian” character was more likely to bring him success, so he embarked on a series of pieces for a variety of instrumentation based on the popular Brazilian chôro tradition, analogous to jazz in the United States, as a rhythmic, improvised style. Choros #3 has three versions, for wind ensemble, men’s chorus, or both combined. It is based on a native Brazilian song, Nozani-na, collected in the Amazon area, and which Villa-Lobos used in several pieces. A contrasting theme is Pica-pau, the sound of the woodpecker.

A Prole do Bebê, Suite 1 was perhaps the work most responsible for transforming Villa-Lobos from an obscure regional composer to an international sensation. The legendary piano virtuoso Artur Rubenstein was very taken by this work when he visited Rio de Janeiro in 1920, and he performed it regularly throughout his career. The seventh movement, O Polichinelo, became one of Rubenstein’s favorite encores and was, in fact, the last encore of his very last public concert.

                  While on a superficial level this remarkable suite owes a great deal to the compositional techniques of Debussy, it is at the same time one of the earliest works that is “authentically Villa-Lobos.” Its pianistic colors and rhythms are quite distinct from those of the French school, and Villa-Lobos was adamant in saying that his music should not be played like Debussy, but rather “like Villa-Lobos.” His indications of accents, dynamic levels, articulation and other aspects of performance are very precise in showing how this is to be done (though many pianists have been guilty of ignoring them). Each movement depicts a different member of “the baby’s family” of dolls (a second suite depicts toy animals).

Federico Ibarra Groth is a Mexican composer, born in 1946. He has published six solo piano sonatas to date, along with two other works. All these works, composed between 1971 and 2006, will be performed on this concert.

Federico Ibarra’s music for piano has an extraordinary magical quality to it. It is emotionally charged, ranging from ethereally delicate to intensely passionate. The overall sound has an immediacy that enables the listener to connect with it on first hearing, yet there is ample underlying complexity to reward repeated and detailed listening.
