Joana Carneiro and
Berkeley Symphony Announce 2012-2013 Season Featuring Four Commissioned World

New Works from Steven Stucky, Dylan Mattingly, Andreia
Pinto-Correia and Paul Dresher; Shai Wosner performing Ligeti’s Piano Concerto; Lynn Harrell in
Lutosawski’s Cello Concerto; and
masterworks from Beethoven, Bruckner, Rachmaninoff and Schumann highlight the
2012–2013 Season.  And Music Director
Joana Carneiro extends her contract through the 2016–2017 season.

Music Director Joana Carneiro and Berkeley Symphony today
announced programming for the 2012-2013 season, including a world premiere
commission on each of the four subscription concerts. Maestra Carneiro’s
critically acclaimed partnership with Berkeley Symphony will continue for an
additional five years with the announcement that her contract has been renewed
through the 2016-2017 Season. Recognized for its exuberant spirit and steadfast
commitment to presenting original and unique programs, including ASCAP awards
for adventurous programming in eight of the past eleven seasons, Berkeley
Symphony continues this commitment with a 2012–13 Season that combines new
works from Steven Stucky, Dylan Mattingly, Andreia Pinto-Correia and Paul
Dresher, along with masterworks such as Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, Bruckner’s Symphony
No. 4
, Rachmaninoff’s Symphonic
, and Schumann’s Symphony No. 2.
Internationally renowned artists Shai Wosner and Lynn Harrell join the
orchestra to perform György Ligeti’s Piano Concerto and Witold Lutosawski’s Cello Concerto.

Paul Dresher, a composer whose music is acclaimed for its
exceptional individuality and beauty, will present a new work to open the
season featuring two of his unique invented instruments: the Quadrachord, a
stringed instrument resembling a guitar that can be plucked or bowed, and the
Hurdy Grande, a larger version of the traditional stringed music instruments
that produces sound by a crank-turned rosined wheel. Steven Stucky will
participate in an extended residency throughout the season, which includes his
participation on the adjudication panel to choose composers for the orchestra’s
Under Construction New Music Series/Composers Program and the incorporation of
his recorder concerto, Etudes, in Berkeley Symphony’s Music in the Schools
program. The composer, a world-renowned expert on the music of Witold
Lutosawski and a recipient of the Lutosawski Society’s medal, will be in
residence during the February concert week, facilitating the pre-concert talk
and participating in other artistic activities. Stucky will continue his
residency in April, at the world premiere of his own work, The Stars and the
Roses, a song cycle for tenor and orchestra set to the poetry of Nobel
Prize–winning poet Czesaw Miosz, featuring former Adler Fellow Noah Stewart.

“I am thrilled that the incredible chemistry I feel with
this orchestra is recognized by our audiences,” says Music Director Joana
Carneiro. “I am humbled by how openly our musicians embrace adventures and I
revel in their virtuosity. Nothing is too challenging, whether it is a
complicated new work or a masterpiece like Bruckner 4. With this orchestra and
audience, I feel free to express myself as an artist and musical leader and I’m
deeply honored to continue my association here.”

Berkeley Symphony’s acclaimed initiative focusing on
composers and new works continues in the 2012–13 Season. The Under Construction
New Music Series/Composers Program is designed to foster an appreciation of
modern symphonic music among a new generation of listeners and to serve as an
artistic incubator for emerging Bay Area composers to experiment with symphonic
music writing. It was this program that introduced Berkeley Symphony to young
composer Dylan Mattingly in 2005.

The 2012–13 Season also brings an expansion of Berkeley
Symphony’s already vigorous education program, which serves all eleven public
elementary schools in Berkeley. The nationally recognized program consists of
musician classroom visits, instrument lessons, and performance opportunities
for students from kindergarten through the fifth grade. The students grow with
the program year after year, building on their knowledge while learning with
and performing alongside the orchestra. This season, the Music in the Schools
program will incorporate composer Steven Stucky’s recorder concerto, Etudes, as
part of the in-class curriculum to demonstrate the different musical elements.
Suzanne McCulloch, Berkeley Unified School District’s Visual and Performing
Arts Supervisor, called Berkeley Symphony’s music education programs “an
invaluable asset.”

“The 2012–13 Season firmly establishes Berkeley Symphony’s
‘mission to commission’ under the artistic leadership of Joana Carneiro,” says
Executive Director René Mandel, “and I’m extremely grateful that major funding
institutions such as the Hewlett Foundation, the National Endowment for the
Arts, the Creative Work Fund and New Music USA are taking note of our
commitment to the music of our time. Each of our subscription concerts is
programmed with a distinct flavor, offering our audiences unique insights into
symphonic music by setting side by side the great masterpieces of the standard
repertoire with brand-new or rarely performed works. We are fortunate to have
passionate and committed audiences, and we strive, at each concert, to leave
them challenged and delighted.”

Fischer-Dieskau (1925–2012)

It was with profound sadness that Deutsche Grammophon
learned of the great baritone Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau's passing on May 18,
shortly before his 87th birthday. He was one of the outstanding musical figures
of the last century, and his bounty of peerless recordings – song, opera and
oratorio – has been a cornerstone of the Yellow Label catalogue for more than
60 years.

In particular, he achieved pre-eminence as an interpreter
of German Lieder. “I have never heard Fischer-Dieskau sing without being able
to learn something from it,” wrote the late J.B. Steane. “Intellect and emotion
are fused; that is the distinctive mark of the civilised European culture which
Fischer-Dieskau throughout his long career has represented so well.” His remark
encapsulates the reasons why Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, to quote another astute
English critic – Hilary Finch – “made a greater impression on the history of
singing in the 20th century than any other performer,” and why, as the critic
Ivan Nagel famously wrote, many of us have “spent half our lives with him,”
would know less and have experienced a lot less without him, would have lived a
lot less.

Listen Magazine's Summer Issue Takes
Dance as Its Theme, Including a Cover Interview with the Most Musical of
Contemporary Choreographers, Mark Morris

The summer issue, May 28, 2012, also features chanteuse
Ute Lemper, composer Krzysztof Penderecki and broadcaster Fred Child of Performance Today, plus a guide to
summer festivals.

Whether it's Baroque suites or Stravinsky's Rite of Spring, much of history's
greatest music has been rooted in dance. The Summer 2012 issue of Listen magazine takes dance as its
theme, ranging from the golden age of Ballets Russes impresario Sergei
Diaghilev to the work of contemporary choreographer Matthew Bourne, from the
delights of Prokofiev's magical, moving Cinderella to new dances for music by
Steve Reich and David Lang at the Guggenheim Museum. Editor-in-chief Ben Finane
conducts an entertaining and provocative cover interview with the most musical
of today's choreographic masters: Mark Morris. And there are stories from a
wide world of dance, whether it's the tale of a Toronto opera house founded by
two dancers or a trip to Moscow's Bolshoi with a dancer from Texas.

Going beyond dance, the summer issue includes a visit with
chanteuse Ute Lemper backstage at Carnegie Hall, plus the story of a Los
Angeles Philharmonic violinist bringing music to the homeless and the mentally
ill. The magazine also offers an inside look at composer Krzysztof Penderecki's
collaboration with Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead, as well as a rundown of the
summer's top festivals. And, as always, Listen provides expert recommendations
of the best new recordings, including young Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital's
foray into Bach and a 50-CD boxed set celebrating the evergreen achievements of
the Mercury Living Presence label.

Elsewhere in the issue, Listen details a fascinating day in the life of broadcaster Fred
Child of NPR's Performance Today, and the magazine recommends mandolinist Avi
Avital's new Bach album as well as a new collection of Arvo Pärt's music from
conductor Paul Hillier, the latest in Naïve's complete Vivaldi edition,
beautiful piano trios by Czech composer J.B. Foerster and haunting Gesualdo
motets from the Hilliard Ensemble.

A print quarterly hailed by Library Journal as one of the
best new magazines of 2009, Listen
magazine is the American voice of classical music.

Now in its fourth year of publication, Listen delivers
interviews with the world's top musicians, feature articles, think pieces,
festival coverage, insight into the masterworks and unsung works of the
classical canon, as well as recommendations for the best in classical music on
record, on screen, in print and online. No one covers the breadth and depth of
classical music with greater elegance and enthusiasm than Listen. The magazine is available at Barnes & Noble or by

Leif Ove Andsnes, Monday-Thursday, June 11-14, at Hertz Hall

New artist Soprano Lucy Shelton makes her Cal Performances
debut in the San Francisco Bay Area premiere of Reinbert de Leeuw’s song cycle Im wunderschönen Monat Mai.  Bay Area premieres also include John Luther
Adams’ Inuksuit and Bent Sørensen’s Piano Concerto No. 2, “La Mattina,” and
an exclusive video with Leif Ove Andsnes.

Cal Performances’ second annual Ojai North!, a multi-year
partnership with the esteemed Ojai Music
Festival, gets underway in Berkeley on Monday, June 11 with the Bay Area
premiere of John Luther Adams’s Inuksuit (2009) conducted by
percussionist Steven Schick for whom
the work was written. This event,
which features two dozen percussionists and piccolo players, will take place on
the lawn outside Hertz Hall and is free and open to the public. Ojai
continues Tuesday–Thursday,  June 12–14, with a series of daily concerts
at 7:00 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. at Hertz
Hall.  Each summer the Ojai Music
Festival explores the musical interests of its Music Director, an annual
position that is held this year by Leif Ove Andsnes, “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power and insight” (The New York Times). Joining him will be
a number of his favorite collaborators, including the Norwegian Chamber
Orchestra, conductor/composer Reinbert de Leeuw, pianist Marc-André Hamelin,
mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn and violinist Terje Tønneson. The festival includes three Bay Area premieres: composer Bent
Sørensen’s Piano Concerto No. 2, “La
Mattina,” a reworking of De Leeuw’s song cycle Im wunderschönen Monat Mai and Adams’s percussion extravaganza.
Other highlights of this diverse line-up include works by Charles Ives, William
Bolcom, Leoš Janáèek, Edvard Grieg and Igor Stravinsky’s two piano version of Sacre du Printemps with Andsnes and

“The Berkeley program is especially curated from the Ojai
Music Festival,” said Cal Performances Director Matías Tarnopolsky. “The series gives us the essence of the
brilliance and creativity of this celebrated group of artists gathered together
by Leif Ove Andsnes.” Tarnopolsky will moderate a pre-performance series of
talks with Andsnes, TuesdayThursday,
June 1214 at 6:00 p.m. at Hertz

Andsnes and Cal Performances have created an exclusive  in which the pianist performs excerpts from
Beethoven’s “Waldstein” sonata and talks about his philosophy for programming
the Festival that features a mix of contemporary and classical works.

This season’s Ojai North! marks the second year of a
residency partnership between Cal Performances and the Ojai Music Festival; the
Festival will continue in Berkeley at the end of every annual music festival in
Ojai Valley. The collaboration includes joint commissions and co-productions as
it did in 2011 when then Music Director soprano Dawn Upshaw and theater
director Peter Sellars created a new staged production of George Crumb’s The
Winds of Destiny

The Program:

Ojai North! kicks
off on Monday, June 11 at 5:00 p.m. with John Luther Adams’s Inuksuit, an expansive spatial work for
9 to 99 percussion and piccolo players. Adams, a longtime resident of Alaska,
takes inspiration from the Arctic landscape. In Berkeley, the work will be
performed on the lawn near Hertz Hall; Steven Schick, founder and artistic director of the band red fish, blue fish,
will stage and conduct the piece. Audience members will be able to move among
the musicians to hear the composition from a variety of positions.  The
New Yorker
’s Alex Ross named the New York engagement of Inuksuit “one of the greatest
performances of 2011.”  This is Schick’s
second appearance at Ojai North! He
performed in The Winds of Destiny.

The Tuesday, June 12, at 7:00 p.m. program will highlight the many
talents of Leif Ove Andsnes. First he performs Alfred Schnittke’s Piano Quintet
with members of the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra. Andsnes will then accompany
rising star mezzo-soprano Christianne Stotijn in Dmitri Shostakovich’s late
song cycle Six Poems of Marina Tsvetaeva,
Op. 143. The concert concludes with longtime collaborator Marc-André Hamelin
joining Andsnes for Igor Stravinsky’s own four hands arrangement of his
prodigious Le Sacre du Printemps.

On Tuesday, June 12, at 9:30 p.m. the Norwegian
Chamber Orchestra will perform Leoš Janáèek’s String Quartet No. 1, “The Kreutzer Sonata,” featuring actor
Theodore Jansen in readings from Tolstoy arranged for string orchestra and

Reinbert de Leeuw’s cycle of 21 songs Im wunderschönen Monat Mai (“In
the Merry Month of May”) was inspired by works by Robert Schumann and Franz
Schubert and is the centerpiece of the concert on Wednesday, June 13, at
7:00 p.m.
This Bay Area premiere was written for actress Barbara Sukowa who
was to perform the work, but due to a family emergency, is unable to be part of
Ojai Music Festival or Ojai North!
Tony-nominated American soprano/actress Lucy
Shelton will perform the role that calls for singing, screaming, whispering –
a full range of vocal sounds. Her specialty is contemporary music and in a
recent concert of
with Eighth Blackbird, The Washington Post wrote that Shelton “played her
full, fruity voice like an instrument, glissando-ing and cooing….”
Andnes recently commented that the “instrumentation of Reinbert is very
beautiful and the transitions between songs are often more modern and
surrealistic and then you get into the familiarity of Schmann and Schubert.”
the piano, the composer joins 15 musicians from the Norwegian Chamber
Orchestra; the work will debut at the Ojai Music Festival. Opening Wednesday’s
program is the Norwegian Chamber Orchestra’s arrangement of Janáèek’s
Quartet No. 2, “Intimate Letters.”

On Wednesday, June 13, at 9:30 p.m., Marc-André
Hamelin will perform Charles Ives’ Concord
, a work Hamelin has loved and performed since he was 15 years
old.  Hearing Hamelin play this
composition, Andsnes stated that it was “one of the greatest performances I’ve
ever seen. He owns the piece.”

Thursday, June 14, at 7:00 p.m., Norwegian composer
Bent Sørensen’s Piano Concerto No. 2,
“La Mattina,” will have its Bay Area premiere with Andsnes and the Norwegian
Chamber Orchestra; the American premiere will take place at the Ojai Music
Festival. The program also includes Icelandic composer Haflidi Hallgrímsson’s Poemi, Op. 7, with the Norwegian Chamber
Orchestra and violinist Terje Tønneson, and Alban Berg’s early Four Songs, Op. 2, sung by Stotijn with
Hamelin at the piano. Concluding the program, Andsnes will perform Ludwig van
Beethoven’s Piano Sonata No. 21 in C
Op. 53, “Waldstein,” a work that he has included in the Ojai
programming because of its many modern sounds that “point to the future.”


Selections from György Kurtag’s Játékok (“Games”)
open the Thursday, June 14, at 9:30 p.m. concert. The work is inspired
by children spontaneously playing the piano; The New York Times described the pieces as having “a hit-and-run
funniness; they jolt, stab or sigh, then run away.” Claude Debussy’s Danses
Sacre et Profane
for strings and solo harp will follow. A selection of
spirited cabaret songs by William Bolcom will be sung by Stotijn and
accompanied by Hamelin on the piano. Capping off the concert and Ojai North! will be the Nowegian Chamber
Orchestra’s interpretation of their countryman Edvard Grieg’s Holberg Suite.

Leif Ove Andsnes:

With his commanding technique and searching interpretations,
the Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes has won worldwide acclaim, prompting The
Wall Street Journal to call him “one of the most gifted musicians of his
generation.” He gives recitals and plays concertos each season in the world’s
leading concert halls and with the foremost orchestras. Andsnes is also an
active recording artist, as well as an avid chamber musician who has joined
select colleagues each summer at Norway’s Risør Festival of Chamber Music which
he founded and was Music Director of from 1992 to 2010. For further information
regarding the festival, go to

Andsnes was born in Karmøy, Norway, in 1970, and studied at the Bergen Music
Conservatory under the renowned Czech professor Jiøí Hlinka. Over the past
decade, he has also received invaluable advice from the Belgian piano teacher
Jacques de Tiège, who, like Hlinka, has greatly influenced his style and
philosophy of playing. Andsnes cites Dinu Lipatti, Arturo Benedetti
Michelangeli, Sviatoslav Richter and Géza Anda among the pianists who have most
inspired him. Andsnes currently lives in Copenhagen and Bergen and is a
Professor at the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo, a Visiting Professor at
the Royal Music Conservatory of Copenhagen and a member of the Royal Swedish
Academy of Music. For a full biography, go to
