Dear Music Lovers,
We at the DSO always strive to
create memorable seasons—and
what a memorable season this is
already! At a time when the normal
course of events, of life, of culture and
music, is disrupted at best, and
hobbled, or extinguished at worst, we
are beyond thrilled to present great mu-
sic for you—extraordinary
nourishment at a time of extraordinary need.

This season the power of great music stands in startling relief to
notions of social distancing and mask-wearing. Music is about
social closeness—from its ordinary method of performing and of
consuming, music is a close-quarter pursuit. Music is intimate. It
brings people together, rather than keeping them apart. Mask-
wearing too is antithetical to what we do. Masks hide, music

Even with these impediments, the great music of great masters
speak—even across DSL and fiber optic lines. And even with
masks, great music shines a bright light on the power and beauty
of humanity.

This is a memorable season. But my hope is that in the near future
we will remember the past year not for the pandemic, but for the
heartening, nourishing displays of humanity that we see every
day—people in unideal circumstances making an effort to make
the world more bearable and more beautiful.

Thank you for being with us.

DSO Patrons & Friends,
The dictionary definition of a “silver
lining” is:
(n) a sign of hope in an unfortunate
or gloomy situation; a bright prospect:
Every cloud has a silver lining.
Since the pandemic began over six
months ago you may have encountered
several silver linings in your life. For
me, it has been unexpected time with
my wife and daughter, more time outdoors on our front porch,
renewed relationships with family and friends (albeit, from a dis-
tance), and a newfound appreciation for our Delaware Symphony
musicians’ dedication to their craft and innate need to perform.
The DSO, too, has had its share of silver linings since the pandemic
began: Our new Executive Director, J.C. Barker, moved to Wilm-
ington and got right down to business; David Amado found new,
innovative ways to connect with our audience; the generosity of
our patrons and donors allowed us to support our DSO musicians
during a time that many musicians across the country were being
Of course, there have always been silver linings, however, the
pandemic has made them a little more meaningful…more easily
savored. I look forward to the DSO’s 2020-2021 Season’s digital
format as a silver lining that will empower us to reach for the stars
as we continue to present a first-class, intimate experience during
these challenging times.

Thank you,

David J. Kubacki

Program Notes
Italy and its culture have long been inspirational to authors, poets,
artists, and composers. Perhaps the country's place at the forefront
of arts and culture can be linked back to Rome and its role as caput
mundi, or head of the world. Traditionally Italy conjures images
of food, wine, the Mediterranean Sea, and Rome's ancient ruins.
However, it also boasts the title as the home of modern opera. Italy
is the country most often associated with the art form as well as
other performing arts. Its musical and theatrical traditions have
also inspired many composers to write music in an Italian style or
an Italian theme.

Despite being recognized as the birthplace of modern opera, Italy is
not the only country to produce influential opera composers.
Germany's Richard Wagner is widely acknowledged to be one of
the late nineteenth century's most influential musical figures. He
would also be a significant influence on Hugo Wolf. Before the
Wagnerian era, art song, or Lied, was a prominent form of vocal
music in Germany and Austria. Composers set German
romantic poets' work to music, transcribing the words into song
that gave audiences a new way of hearing and feeling the poetry.
The best-known composers of lied, such as Franz Schubert and
Robert Schumann, were extraordinarily prolific and led
surprisingly short lives. Wolf also ranks among the greatest com-
posers of lied. Tragically, his life ended when he was only 42 after
he checked himself into an asylum several years prior due to syphi-
litic insanity.

                Wolf was discouraged from pursuing a
                compositional career. He was expelled from
                several secondary schools due to his erratic
                temperament and lack of interest in any
                coursework—other than music. He would
                eventually enroll at the Vienna conservatory but
                would also be expelled due to breach of discipline
   Hugo Wolf    and clashing with its conservative authorities.
Music was said to be the only thing upon which he cared to focus,
and his decision to pursue composition as a career placed a great
deal of strain on the relationship he had with his family.

Wolf 's personal life dictated his compositional output in the sense
that he went through somewhat brief periods of writing in which
he churned out many works and endured extended bouts of
depression that caused him to suffer from from musical writer's
block. One such period occurred after the death of Wagner, whom
Wolf idolized. Many believe he wrote the song "Zur Ruh, zur Ruh"
as an elegy to the late composer. For a time, Wolf worked as a critic,
offering scathing reviews of any music he deemed inferior. Franz
Liszt encouraged Wolf to expand his compositional output from
song to larger works. Wolf firmly believed that he would only gain
the notoriety he felt he deserved through full orchestral pieces and
opera. By the time of his death, Wolf left many compositions
unfinished, one of which was the expansion of his Serenade in G
Major. He planned to transform it from a piece for string quartet
to a full orchestral work. Wolf referred to the work as "an Italian
serenade," which is how it has come to be known.

Italian Serenade was meant to have additional movements, but
his attempts in 1893, 1894, and 1897 were never realized beyond
sketches. Wolf, who detested absolute music and academic forms of
composition, did not use an expected sonata-like form for the ser-
enade. Instead, he utilized a programmatic style, with a free rondo
form and recitative-like passages. The piece is viewed as
unlikely joyful for someone who had such a troubled life. The
music, which dances about, is reminiscent of Italian comic opera.
The work opens with a motif that might suggest the tuning of
guitars or mandolins and leads into a dance-like melody. Wolf 's
signature use of chromatic harmony soon appears, along with
trills and rapid scales. A slower moving motif then gives way to
the opening material, which appears several times throughout the
short work. Wolf further embellishes the motifs, giving rise to lively
outbursts before a calmer handing off of thematic material from
one instrument to another. The work concludes in a light-hearted
manner, in much the same way as it opened.
Those who are familiar with Wolf 's music often lament that he
never completed subsequent movements to his Italian Serenade. It
is thought to be one of his best orchestral works, and most
accurately illustrates the evolution of his compositional maturity.
In the same way his Serenade was influenced by Italian culture and
marked a turn in Wolf 's compositional style, Igor Stravinsky found
himself inspired by works of the Italian composer Giovanni Battista
Pergolesi as well as the commedia dell'arte. These would eventually
become the basis of a ballet that was reconciliation of sorts between
Stravinsky and his good friend, the impresario Sergei Diaghilev,
after a falling out. It also marked his compositional transition to the
neoclassical style.

                         Stravinsky is perhaps best known for his
                         collaborations with Diaghilev for the Ballets
                         Russes: The Firebird, Petruskha, and The
                         Rite of Spring. The last of the three ballets
                         solidified Stravinsky's reputation as a
                         revolutionary composer, pushing the
                         boundaries of music in terms of
                         rhythmic structures, and their relationship
                         to harmonic structures. Stravinsky grew up
      Igor Stravinsky    in what one might call a more traditional
musical household. His father, Fyodor, was a bass with the Kyiv
Opera (now the National Opera of Ukraine) and the Mariinsky
Theatre. His musical studies began at a young age, and his interest
in ballet occurred at about eight years old when he saw a
production of Tchaikovsky's The Sleeping Beauty. As was the case
with many musicians, Stravinsky's parents wanted him to study law.
He did, for the most part, stick to his law studies during his first
year at the University of St. Petersburg. His focus shifted in 1902
after befriending the son of the composer Nikolai Rimsky-
Korsakov, Vladimir. Nine years later, Stravinsky met Diaghilev, and
their collaborations for the Ballets Russes began in earnest. The two
would have a falling out, though, when after World War I Russia/
the emerging USSR did not permit Stravinsky to collect royalties
on performances of his works from the Ballet Russes. Stravinsky
blamed Diaghilev for this, despite it not being his fault.
Well aware of Stravinsky's animosity toward him, Diaghilev lured
his friend back to composing a work for a resurrected Ballet Russes
by giving him Pergolesi manuscripts. Later it was found out that
the majority were not actually written by Pergolesi, but the ploy
worked. Selecting the music as inspiration for this new work proved
to be an easy task for Stravinsky. He also took an episode from the
commedia dell'arte involving the stock character Pulcinella, the
traditional Neapolitan hero. When composing the work, Stravinsky
stated, "I began by composing on the Pergolesi manuscripts
themselves, as though I were correcting an old work of my own."
He also stated, "... I could not produce a 'forgery' of Pergolesi
because my motor habits are so different; at best, I could repeat him
in my own accent."

Stravinsky did create something that was entirely his own,
mainly altering the inner harmonies and rhythms of the
manuscripts. The something that he created was initially quite
misunderstood, especially by Diaghilev, who was unsure to credit
Stravinsky as the composer or arranger. Others criticized him for
deserting modernism and felt his interpretation was sacrilegious.
None the less, Pulcinella premiered in Paris in 1920. The ballet is
divided into 21 sections and has vocal parts. Two years later,
Stravinsky revised the score, creating the Pulcinella Suite, which
consists of eight movements. He further revised the suite in 1949
and 1965.

The plot conveyed through the music involves Pulcinella and his
girlfriend, Pimpinella, their friends Furbo, Prudenza, Rosetta,
Florindo, and Cloviello. The story begins with Florindo and
Cloviello serenading Prudenza and Rosetta, but the ladies are
unimpressed by their suitors. Rosetta dances for Pulcinella, and
they kiss. Pimpinella witnesses this and is infuriated. It also fills
Florindo and Cloviello with jealousy. Pulcinella is stabbed, but this
is a setup in order to gain Pimpinella's forgiveness. Furbo, disguised
as a magician, resurrects the 'slain' Pulcinella in front of everyone,
and he earns the forgiveness he seeks. Pulcinella and Pimpinella,
along with the other two couples, wed at the end of the ballet.
While Stravinsky was inspired by Italian music and theatre, Felix
Mendelssohn drew inspiration from his experiences visiting Italy.
Traveling throughout Europe was often customary for well-to-do
and educated families in the nineteenth and early twentieth
centuries. It would, therefore, not be surprising as something that
Mendelssohn experienced during his life. His father was a banker,
and his grandfather was a philosopher, so he and his siblings grew
up in a well-off and intellectual household. The Mendelssohn
children grew up with artists, musicians, scientists, and
intellectuals visiting the salon in their parents' Berlin home. Both
Felix and his sister Fanny displayed great musical talents in their
youth, and despite their father believing Fanny initially had greater
musical abilities, Felix became a very successful composer and
performer. It was not viewed as appropriate for a woman to
pursue a career in music in the early 1800s – a conception that has,
thankfully, changed. Fanny did compose and played piano to great
acclaim but was only viewed as an amateur during her lifetime.

In 1830, Mendelssohn embarked on a
grand tour of Europe, visiting England,
Scotland, Wales, and Italy. His sojourn to
Italy lasted ten months, and he
documented the trip in a series of
watercolors and a musical travelogue. In
addition to composing, Mendelssohn was
an accomplished painter and illustrator.
His tour began in Venice and ended in
Rome, with stops in Bologna and Florence
on the way south, and Naples, Pompeii,           Felix Mendelssohn

Genoa, and Milan on his return trip to Germany. While in Rome,
he witnessed the ceremonies, devotions, and festivities of Holy
Week, as well as the coronation of Pope Pius VIII. In Symphony
No. 4, Mendelssohn evokes the sights and impressions of Italy from
his excursion: the sunshine, countryside, the Mediterranean Sea,
religious ceremonies, and the country's art and architecture.

The work, which Mendelssohn once described as "blue sky in A
major," opens with breathless excitement and a jubilant melody,
depicting the warm, bright Italian sky; a stark contrast to the often
cloud-filled and seemingly less vibrant northern European
atmosphere. He does, however, include a turbulent minor
development section as a nod to northern Europe and his
"Scottish" Symphony (in A minor), which he was working on at
the same time. In the second movement, Mendelssohn illustrates
the ceremonies he witnessed during Holy Week in Rome. The
slower moving passages evoke the solemn processions in which
the faithful and clergy alike slowly move toward and throughout
churches in devotion. In somewhat of a contrast, or perhaps more
of a continuation of his journey, the third movement depicts Italy's
art and architecture. The fanfare-like motif suggests a grandeur of
colossal structures and their harmonic symmetry. The fourth and
final movement is the one that is overtly Italian. It is based on the
Neapolitan saltarello, a dance that originated in medieval Tuscany
and is known for its leaping step. The movement presses forward,
as does the lively dance, and comes to a close with a variation of the
symphony's opening theme.
