DEAR FRIENDS,It is a great joy and privilege to welcome you to our 2022 Summermusik! We are back in full force, and live! We have been waiting for this moment for two years and are excited to welcome you back to all our performances.This summer we oer four concert weekends, each centered around themes that aim to discover, reflect, and inspire.The first week of Summermusik will begin with music that is guaranteed to bring passion and joy – music from South America. Grammy award winner and bandoneon virtuoso, Hector Del Curto, will play Astor Piazzolla’s Bandoneon Concerto. World Argentine Tango Champion Fernanda Ghi and her partner Silvio Grand will turn up the musical and emotional heat as we explore the unique passion that inhabits the tango.Our second weekend will explore the “fantastical” side of the human experience: The supernatural, the dream state of our minds. György Ligeti’s Concerto Romanesc is fantastic in many ways and is inspired by folk music from Romanian mountains and villages. In his Concerto for Harp, Mascaras (“Masks”), Arturo Marquez creates music that is full of rhythm, color, and melody. Virtuoso harpist Ina Zdorovetchi is a fearless master of the instrument, tackling one of the most challenging concertos for the harp. Finally, French composer and arranger Arthur Lavandier takes Hector Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique on a wild ride. This is a unique opportunity to discover a familiar masterpiece in a new light – a fantastical new sound scape.The act of artistic creation is a miracle. In the third week. Summermusik explores what inspires artists. We explore the lives and legacies of the muses that inspired legendary composers. Clara Schumannwas a muse, fierce music critic, and virtuoso pianist all in one. Pianist Vijay Venkatesh will perform Clara’s piano concerto, tailored by the composer to her own extraordinary technical prowess. Soprano Victoria Okafor will be the soloist in the Finale of Gustav Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, celebrating “The Heavenly Life" - inspired by his muse and wife, Alma Mahler. As we will show this weekend again and again: Even a genius needs a muse.Water is often viewed as the most valuable resource – and source of life itself. It has also been a source of inspiration for many composers for centuries. The final concert of Summermusik opens with the most famous waltz of all time, composed by the "Waltz King" Johann Strauss II, himself: The Blue Danube Waltz. This music features some of the most iconic and memorable melodies of all of music history. The shimmering textures of water are masterfully depicted in Claude Debussy’s masterwork La Mer. With it, Debussy translated French impressionism into music, introducing a new sound world. Chinese-born composer Tan Dun writes music that is evocative, emotional, and colorful. In his Water Concerto, Tan Dun used water itself as a musical instrument. Multi-percussionist Yuri Yamashita plays many styles – from classical to contemporary, from Latin and Brazilian percussion to Tina Turner. She will bring unlimited imagination to her audiovisual performance of this unique work.I am more than excited about this season! Thank you for joining us in person for the incomparable experience of live music. Let’s celebrate the return of a full Summermusik season!3 DIFFERENT CONCERT EXPERIENCESMIX IT UP!2 | SUMMERMUSIK FESTIVAL 2022Photo Credit: Michael WilsonECKART PREUP.S.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 13Prelude Talk: 6:45pm | SCPA Mayerson TheaterEckart Preu, conductor7:30 pm | SCPA Corbett TheaterGYÖRGY LIGETIConcerto Romanesc (CCO Premiere)ARTURO MARQUEZConcerto for Harp, “Mascaras” (CCO Premiere)HECTOR BERLIOZ, ARR. ARTHUR LAVANDIERSymphonie Fantastique(North American Premiere)“Harp Fantastique” celebrates the harp at the center of a program that tells stories of human passion and transformation. Born in Moldova, Ina Zdorovetchi is an internationally recognized harp virtuoso. György Ligeti is known as an avant-garde composer par excellence. His music has been used in many movies like The Shining and Eyes Wide Shut. His Concerto Romanesc reflects on his early childhood in Romania and his first encounters with Romanian folk music: alphorn players in the Carpathian Mountains, virtuoso fiddlers, honking bagpipes, and masked musicians terrifying the children. This is orchestral folk music at its best: original, rough, wild.Arturo Marquez is one of the most prominent Mexican composers of our time. Hailing from a family of Mariachi and folk musicians, his music is influenced by the rhythms, melodies, and harmonies of the dance halls in Mexico City. Masks are an important part of Mexican culture, and are symbols of religious, social, spiritual, and political significance. In his Concerto for Harp “Mascaras” (“Masks”), Arturo Marquez tells of the rejection of the original peoples of Mexico and the resiliency and heart of the Mexican people through Marquez’s famous danzon. Hector Berlioz’ Symphonie Fantastique (Fantastic Symphony) was revolutionary in its musical language. Even now, 190 years later, its musical language is fresh, original, and captivating. Conceived as an autobiographical dreamscape, the symphony follows the passion for a beautiful woman, Harriet Smithson. In this new re-imagination of Symphonie Fantastique by French composer Arthur Lavandier, audiences will experience his obsession and pursuit of love in a new light. In this North America premiere, we experience a new interpretation the familiar masterwork. Intended as a ‘recreation,' it is an open-minded tribute to the genius of Berlioz' masterpiece.HARPFANTASTIQUEINA ZDOROVETCHIharpSUMMERMUSIK FESTIVAL 2022 | 9Wine will be available for purchase.Approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes

Prelude Talk: 6:45pm | SCPA Mayerson TheaterEckart Preu, conductor7:30 pm | SCPA Corbett TheaterSUMMERMUSIK FESTIVAL 2022 | 15SATURDAY, AUGUST 20THE POWER OF THE MUSELILI BOULANGERD'un Matin de Printemps(CCO Premiere)CLARA SCHUMANNPiano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 7 (CCO Premiere)Vijay Venkatesh, pianoGUSTAV MAHLER, ARR. KLAUS SIMONSymphony No. 4 in G Major(CCO Premiere)Victoria Okafor, solo soprano“Power of the Muse” celebrates figures who inspire composers to create masterworks. Lili Boulanger was an extraordinary French musical prodigy. Inspired by Fauré and Debussy she developed a compelling musical language that is entirely her own. Her D’un Matin de Printemps("Of a Spring Morning") creates an impressionistic sound world that is full of vibrant energy and delicacy. Even before her untimely death at age 24, Boulanger succeeded in being the first woman to win the Rome Prize - the most coveted composition prize of the time - making her an inspiration for all female composers to come. The brilliant Clara Schumann - the muse for her husband Robert, and Johannes Brahms - was recognized as one of the most important pianists of her time. Yet her accomplishments as a composer are still to be rediscovered. Award-winning pianist Vijay Venkatesh is the soloist in her dazzling piano concerto. She was only sixteen years old when she composed this concerto as a showcase for herself: bold, passionate, and imaginative. Full of passion and joy of life, Alma Mahler was a prolific composer and musician. Yet she had no support in being a creative, independent woman in Vienna. Instead, she is remembered as a muse, supporter, and lover to brilliant, creative men - like her husband Gustav. Gustav Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 is full of light and love. It describes a bright cheerfulness reflective of the unearthly joy of heavenly life. “Silver-voiced soprano” Victoria Okafor will join the CCO in this inspired symphonic masterpiece.VIJAY VENKATESHpianoVICTORIA OKAFORsopranoApproximately 2 hours and 30 minutesVijay Venkatesh SponsorsJeanne & Christopher BarnesWine will be available for purchase.Victoria Okafor SponsorsMr. & Mrs. Robert J.

IAIN FARRINGTON La Mer (CCO Premiere) The grand finale of Summermusik 2022 is a multi-sensatory experience. “Sounds of Water” starts with one of the most famous pieces of music of all time - the Blue Danube Waltz. This chain of five waltzes creates the illusion to be lifted o the floor - or to float on water. Chinese composer Tan Dun is famous as the composer of the music to Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon. The solo instrument in his Water Concerto is - water. Percussionist Yuri Yamashita joins the CCO to create a fascinating and magical sound world in an audio-visual performance where audiences will find themselves listening with their eyes and watching with their ears. The season ends with music by the master of French musical impressionism - Claude Debussy. His ultimate masterpiece La Mer (“The Sea”) was inspired by Hokusai’s woodblock print Under the Great Wave O Kanagawa and reflects on his tumultuous personal life at the time. In it he paints images of wind and sea in vivid and imaginative orchestral colors and textures that were revolutionary at the time and are still captivating now - 115 years later.YURI YAMASHITAvoiceGale & Dave BeckettWine will be available for purchase.Concert Sponsors

“CCO has come alive with Eckart Preu’s leadership. Love the new direction and the energy and enthusiasm shown by the music and the musicians.”“Fantastic concerts! My favorite orchestra!”“This is the highlight of my year.”“This series has been beautiful beyond words… so much more than just a ne concert.” “Unafraid to take risks, the 32-piece Chamber Orchestra – including its hands-on board – has invented one of the most creative and innovative classical music experiencesin the region.” - Janelle Gelfand, Cincinnati Business Courier“But Eckart Preu kept things ebbing and flowing with his genial but firm command of his forces. The young maestro moves comfortably from the film music of Nyman and the New Age sounds of Enaudi to the atonalism of Zivkovic and on to the Baroque elegance of Vivaldi, Torelli and Handel. That alone qualifies him in most books and certainly in mine as a conductor to take notice of. Cincinnati has noticed and embraced him.” - Rafael de Acha, Rafael's Music Notes“If only streaming music could recreate a live performance of Pepe and the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. […] I found myself closing my eyes as well, giving myselfto the music.” - John David Back, ArtsWaveSUMMERMUSIK FESTIVAL 2022 | 31SUMMERMUSIKAUDIENCE & PRESS REVIEWS
