From the President & CEO
Dear Friends,
Happy Anniversary, Jeff Tyzik!
Twenty years ago, Jeff joined the RPO as Principal Pops Conductor and we are marking his
anniversary season with a special celebration on March 21 & 22. Jeff has made his home in
Rochester since 1969, when he entered the Eastman School of Music as a freshman. Over the
past two decades, he has developed a special relationship with devoted local audiences who
appreciate his genius at creating magical pops programs that keep the spotlight on our beloved
During Jeff’s tenure, he has composed, arranged, and orchestrated more than 200 works for
orchestra. He has conducted not only Pops concerts but also classical concerts on the Philharmonics Series, which last season featured a new Tyzik composition in honor of the Memorial
Art Gallery’s anniversary. (We’ll have a chance to experience that work in a new dimension in
May 2015, when Rochester City Ballet performs Jamey Leverett’s world-premiere choreography
to that vibrant work—Images: Musical Impressions of an Art Gallery—on the Pops Series.)
For his special 20th Season Celebration, the RPO will perform music covering the breadth of
Jeff’s repertoire—jazz, blues, Latin, big band, classical—and feature special guest trumpeters
Allen Vizzutti and Doc Severinsen, and trombonist Jim Pugh. Jeff has long ties with all three:
Vizzutti and Pugh via the Eastman School, and Severinsen through projects such as producing
(with Vizzutti as co-producer) his Grammy Award-winning album, The Tonight Show Band with
Doc Severinsen, Vol. 1.
There’s so much to look forward to this month at the RPO! Tyzik also conducts a tribute to the
one-and-only Barbra Streisand (Feb. 28 & Mar. 1) with cabaret and Broadway star Ann
Hampton Callaway. We’re always eager to welcome back Conductor Laureate Christopher
Seaman for his annual appearance—this year for Bruckner’s Symphony No. 6 and Beethoven’s
Piano Concerto No. 2 with Jon Kimura Parker (Mar. 6 & 8). Allen Vizzutti also is featured in
Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 2 in our Baroque Sundays series at Hochstein (Mar. 23).
The Musical Connections series with Michael Butterman at Hochstein will explore the
intersection of music and dance with dancers from Rochester City Ballet (Mar. 2). Michael also
leads the orKIDStra Series concert The Composer is Dead (Mar. 16), a sinister guide to the
orchestra by Nathaniel Stookey with text by Lemony Snicket, and Intermediate Concerts for
fourth-sixth grade students (Mar. 11-14).
We also are looking ahead to what surely will be the highlight of the season: the RPO’s return
to Carnegie Hall on May 7, 2014, for a concert performance of Howard Hanson’s opera Merry
Mount as part of the Spring For Music festival. For details on how our hometown fans can
cheer on the RPO in New York City, call the Eastman Theatre Box Office at 585-454-2100,
or visit rpo.org.
Thank you for coming, and enjoy the concert!

Grammy Award
winner Jeff Tyzik
has earned a
reputation as one
of America’s most
innovative pops
recognized for his
brilliant arrangements, original
programming, and
engaging rapport with audiences of all ages.
The 2013–14 season marks his twentieth
season as principal pops conductor of the
Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra. He also
serves as principal pops conductor of the
Oregon Symphony, Florida Orchestra, and
starting this season, the Seattle, Detroit, and
Dallas symphony orchestras. In April 2012, he
was inducted into the Rochester Music Hall
of Fame, alongside Cab Calloway, Chuck
Mangione, and five other notable figures.
Highly sought-after as a guest conductor,
Tyzik recently appeared with the Boston
Pops, Cincinnati Pops, Dallas Symphony,
Milwaukee Symphony, Toronto Symphony,
Indianapolis Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra
at the Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and
the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the
Hollywood Bowl. Tyzik made his U.K. debut
in June 2010 in Edinburgh and Glasgow
with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra.
A native of Hyde Park, N.Y., Tyzik began his
life in music at age nine playing the cornet.
He studied both classical and jazz throughout
high school and went on to earn both his
bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the
Eastman School of Music, where he studied
composition/arranging with Radio City
Music Hall’s Ray Wright and jazz studies with
the great band leader Chuck Mangione.
An accomplished composer and arranger,
Tyzik has written over 200 works for
orchestra, including a trombone concerto
commissioned by the National Endowment
for the Arts and performed at Carnegie Hall.
His timpani concerto was premiered by the
Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra in January
2010. Tyzik’s newest commission, Images:
Musical Impressions of an Art Gallery, debuted
on the RPO’s Philharmonics Series in
November 2012 and the orchestral version of
his New York Cityscape was premiered on the
Pops Series in collaboration with Rochester
City Ballet in February 2013.
His compositions and arrangements have
been recorded by the London Symphony
Orchestra, Rochester Philharmonic, Erich
Kunzel and the Cincinnati Pops, Doc
Severinsen and the Royal Philharmonic
Orchestra, Vancouver Symphony, Winnipeg
Symphony, Summit Brass, and the Eastman
Wind Ensemble.
Tyzik won a Grammy Award for producing
The Tonight Show Band with Doc Severinsen,
Vol. 1. In May 2007, harmonia mundi
released his recording conducting works by
Gershwin with pianist Jon Nakamatsu and
the Rochester Philharmonic, which reached
No. 3 on the Billboard classical chart. He also
has produced and composed theme music for
many of the major television networks and
released six of his own albums.
Tyzik lives in Rochester, with his wife, Jill. For

Michael Butterman
is making his mark
as a model for
today’s conductors
and is recognized
for his commitment
to creative artistry,
innovative programming, and audience
and community
Now in his fourteenth season as the RPO’s
principal conductor for education and
outreach—the first position of its kind in the
United States—Butterman is also music
director for both the Boulder Philharmonic
and the Shreveport Symphony orchestras. He
is also the resident conductor of the
Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra, a post he
has held since 2009.
He made his debut with the renowned
Cleveland Orchestra in 2012, and was
immediately reengaged for two concerts the
following season. Other recent engagements
include appearances with the symphonies of
Detroit, Houston, Colorado, Oregon, Kansas
City, Hartford, San Antonio, Syracuse, New
Mexico, California, Louisiana, Spokane, El
Paso, Santa Fe, Mobile, Peoria, and WinstonSalem, and the Pensacola Opera and Asheville
Lyric Opera. Summer appearances include
Tanglewood, the Bravo! Vail Valley Music
Festival in Colorado and the Wintergreen
Music Festival in Virginia. In the 2013–14
season, he makes his debut with the
Charleston Symphony.
Butterman gained international attention as a
diploma laureate in the Prokofiev
International Conducting Competition and
as a finalist in the prestigious Besançon
International Conducting Competition. As
the 1999 recipient of the Seiji Ozawa Fellowship, he studied at Tanglewood with Robert
Spano, Jorma Panula, and Maestro Ozawa,
and shared the podium with Ozawa to lead
the season’s opening concert. In 1997, he was
sponsored by UNESCO to lead the National
Philharmonic Orchestra of Moldova in a
concert of music by great American masters.
From 2000 to 2007, Butterman held the post
of associate conductor for the Jacksonville
Symphony in Florida. For six seasons, he also
served as music director of Opera Southwest
in Albuquerque, N.M. Prior to joining the
Jacksonville Symphony, Butterman was
director of orchestral studies at the LSU
School of Music for five years, and principal
conductor of the LSU Opera Theater.
Previously, he held the post of associate
conductor of the Columbus Pro Musica
Orchestra, and served as music director of the
Chamber Opera, Studio Opera, and Opera
Workshop at the Indiana University School
of Music. For two seasons, he was also the
associate music director of the Ohio Light
Opera, conducting over 35 performances
each summer.
At Indiana University, Butterman conducted
a highly acclaimed production of Leonard
Bernstein’s little-known 1600 Pennsylvania
Avenue in a series of performances at the
Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C.,
receiving unanimous praise from such
publications as The New York Times,
Washington Post, Variety, and USA Today. He
subsequently was invited to New York at the
request of the Bernstein estate to prepare a
performance of a revised version of the work.
Butterman’s work has been featured in five
nationwide broadcasts on public radio’s
Performance Today, and can be heard on two
CDs recorded for the Newport Classics label.
A third CD, in which he conducts the RPO
in two narrated works for families, was
released in May 2011. For more information

Seaman is credited
with having raised
the artistic level of
the Orchestra to its
present level of
excellence, and has
played a major part
in its increased recognition and community
support. He was a vital influence in bringing
about the magnificent renovation of the
Eastman Theatre.
Recognized worldwide as one of today’s
leading conductors, he previously served as
principal conductor of the BBC Scottish
Symphony and Northern Sinfonia,
conductor-in-residence with the Baltimore
Symphony Orchestra, and music director of
the Naples Philharmonic in Florida. Highly
sought-after internationally as a guest
conductor and noted for his strong command
of a broad repertoire, Seaman has regular
engagements in North America, Europe,
Israel, the Far East, Australia, and New
Zealand, as well the United Kingdom.
His 2013–14 season includes concerts with
the Melbourne Symphony, Pacific Symphony,
Milwaukee Symphony, Nashville Symphony,
the orchestra of Porto (Portugal), and the
Chautauqua Festival, as well as engagements
in the U.K. and master classes for young
conductors in Australia.
His recordings include performances with the
Royal Philharmonic, the Philharmonia
Orchestra, and the National Youth Orchestra
of Britain. Seaman has recorded three CDs
with the RPO for harmonia mundi, one with
pianist Jon Nakamatsu (2001), one with
pianist Olga Kern (2003), and a Vaughan
Williams recording released in March 2012.
In July 2013, University of Rochester Press
published Seaman’s Inside Conducting, a wise
but entertaining look at the art of
The Christopher Seaman Conductor Laureate Chair

Sponsor Spotlight
The RPO’s diverse array of concerts, artistic initiatives, and education and community engagement programs are possible only through the generous support of the Rochester community.
This month, we would like to give special recognition to the corporate sponsors, charitable
foundations, and government offices that are committed to investing in the greater Monroe
County area and in community assets like the RPO that enrich the cultural fabric of Rochester.
The RPO will recognize their outstanding support during the annual Corporate, Foundation,
and Government Recognition Night on Friday, February 28. Please join us in thanking them
for all they do to enable the RPO to inspire, educate, and engage our community through the
art of music.

Program Notes
Roman Carnival Overture, Op. 9
Hector Berlioz
b. La Côte-Saint-André, France / December
11, 1803
d. Paris, France / March 8, 1869
First performed by the RPO on October 24,
1923; Eugene Goossens, conductor. Last
performed on October 28, 2000; Christopher
Seaman, conductor.
Berlioz not only wrote Romantic music, he
lived the Romantic life, as well, crammed
with tempestuous love affairs, lively feuds
with musical conservatives, and the creation
of music brimming over with imagination
and vitality.
As soon as he read the autobiography of
Benvenuto Cellini—the spirited,
unconventional sixteenth-century Italian
goldsmith, artist, and adventurer—he sensed
such a deep personal affinity with him that he
decided to compose an opera based on
Cellini’s life. Its debut in Paris in 1838, alas,
proved a total fiasco.
Six years later, Berlioz salvaged some of the
score by fashioning a concert overture from
two of the principal melodies: a love song
(memorably transcribed for solo English horn),
and an example of the vigorous Italian folk
dance, the saltarello. He christened the result
Roman Carnival, referring to the festive scene
in the opera where the saltarello is performed.
The overture won immediate and lasting
success, since it is one of the most dazzling
showpieces in the entire orchestral repertoire.
Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat Major, Op. 19
Ludwig van Beethoven
b. Bonn, Germany / December 15, 1770
d. Vienna, Austria / March 26, 1827
First performed by the RPO on November 7,
1957; Gerard Samuel, conductor; Glenn Gould,
soloist. Last performed on May 5, 2007;
Christopher Seaman, conductor; Stephen
Kovacevich, soloist.
Beethoven arrived in Vienna at the end of
1792. He established his reputation through
his piano playing, and by composing solo
works for his own performance. He also
revised several existing creations, including
this concerto. The earliest version may date
back as far as 1788. He prepared a new
edition in 1793, perhaps with the prospect of
a performance, but the opportunity failed to
materialize. Things came together two years
later, at a charity concert in aid of the Society
of Musicians. He played this work, but not before composing a new finale and revising the
second movement. The great success he won
that day placed him firmly in the spotlight.
Still harboring doubts about the concerto, he
drafted a further version of the second
movement, only to put it aside. In 1798, he
revised the first and third movements, thus
creating the final version that was published
in 1801. Because it came into print nine
months after the Concerto “No. 1” in C
Major that he had composed in 1795, it is
known as “No. 2.”
It is a very appealing and well-crafted work.
It opens with an arresting call to attention,
followed by a vigorous first theme and a
relaxed second. The slow movement is rather
formal but still expressive, with a particularly
poetic concluding section. Beethoven’s pupil
Carl Czerny likened it to a dramatic vocal
scene. The finale is a bright, witty romp, with
a cuckoo-like falling interval in the main
rondo theme. The intervening episodes
include a zesty minor-key excursion into
Hungarian/Gypsy territory.
Program Notes, CONTINUED
Symphony No. 6 in A Major
Anton Bruckner
b. Ansfelden, Austria / September 4, 1824
d. Vienna, Austria / October 11, 1896
First performed by the RPO on January 12,
1984; David Zinman, conductor. Last performed
on March 22, 2003; Jerzy Semkow, conductor.
There were two sharply contrasted sides to
Bruckner: the timid, unsophisticated man
from the countryside, and the composer of
symphonies and masses of exalting breadth
and grandeur. One, uncomplicated fact
bridges this vast gap: his deep and abiding
faith in God. It kept him naïve and
self-effacing, at the same time as it helped
him create a unique and magnificent set of
symphonies. They are mighty cathedrals in
sound, praising the Lord with reverence, craft,
and joy. Bruckner’s faith also gave him the
inner strength to persevere in the face of
lengthy, widespread misunderstanding and
critical disfavor, through to his eventual
acceptance as one of the last great
representatives of the Austro-German school
of symphonic composition.
He drew upon a range of models in his quest
to expand the scope and meaning of the
symphony. In terms of its previous history, his
primary inspirations flowed from the broadly
scaled, emotionally rich Ninth Symphonies of
Beethoven and Schubert. The operas of
Wagner were another source. Their influence,
on a composer who had no interest in writing
for the theatre, has been misunderstood or
exaggerated. He did not seek to duplicate
them in symphonic terms, but rather to
incorporate their depth of emotion and
sound into a symphonic context.
Bruckner moved to Vienna in 1868. During
his early years there, his compositions drew
generally positive reviews from the press,
whose most powerful figure was the
arch-conservative critic Eduard Hanslick. But
once Bruckner dedicated his Third
Symphony to Wagner, Hanslick’s most
detested adversary in the “tradition vs.
innovation” musical debate which was then in
full flower, Hanslick’s wrath descended upon
Bruckner harshly and repeatedly.
“Like every one of Bruckner’s works,”
Hanslick wrote of Symphony No. 7, “it
contains ingenious inspirations, interesting
and even pleasant details – but in between the
lightnings there are interminable stretches of
darkness, leaden boredom, and feverish overexcitement.” These and many other similar
attacks might have broken the spirit of an
artist with less faith in his God and his own
abilities than Bruckner, but his beliefs kept
him steadfast. During the final 15 years of his
life, numerous performances and honors
finally came his way. He died a contented,
vindicated man.
He composed Symphony No. 6 between
1879 and 1881. In all the years that remained
to him, he never had the opportunity to hear
a complete performance. Only the second
and third movements were played during his
lifetime, on February 11, 1883 by the Vienna
Philharmonic under Wilhelm Jahn. Johannes
Brahms, other musical luminaries, and the
orchestra applauded the performance.
According to an eyewitness, Hanslick “sat
there, frigid and immobile, like a Sphinx.” It
was only in 1899, three years after Bruckner’s
death, that Gustav Mahler conducted the first
complete performance, albeit in his own
abbreviated and re-orchestrated edition.
It is one of the most genial of Bruckner’s
symphonies. This may reflect to some degree
his circumstances at the time: his music was
gaining increasing respect; his finances had
become secure, thanks to a high-level
teaching post and several private pupils; and
he had recently received honorary
memberships in several prestigious musical
associations. The Sixth Symphony’s nature
may also help explain its relative neglect. The
Program Notes, CONTINUED
majority of listeners seem to prefer his more
dramatic works. At the same time, its gentler,
Schubert-like qualities may well help endear
him to many who resist the more Wagnerian
side of his musical personality.
The first movement opens in an air of mystery
but soon breaks forth into animation. As
always with Bruckner, the overall impression
is one of majesty, drama, and the workings of
vast, superhuman forces. The second movement, adagio, is an intense lament, sublimely
beautiful and filled with great yearning.
“Listen to it with reverence,” the eminent
Scottish musicologist Sir Donald Francis
Tovey wrote, “for the composer meant what
he said, and he is speaking of sacred things.”
The outer portions of the following scherzo
are filled with buoyant energy, as Bruckner
embarks on a gallop through a rougher and
more physically elevated region of the
Austrian countryside than Beethoven visited
in his Pastoral Symphony. The relaxing
central trio section makes captivating use of
pizzicato strings. The finale contrasts
march-like energy with sweet, consoling
lyricism. Bruckner crowns the symphony
with a grand restatement of the theme which
began the entire work.

Allen Vizzutti, TRUMPET
Equally at home in a
multitude of musical
idioms, Allen Vizzutti
has visited 60 countries
and every state in the
union to perform with a
rainbow of artists and
ensembles. Performing
as both a classical and
jazz artist, often in the same evening, he has
appeared as guest soloist with symphony
orchestras, in recital, on television, and in jazz
venues around the world. His last RPO
appearance was in October 2008.
While growing up in Montana, Vizzutti was
taught by his father, a self-taught musician.
Vizzutti attended the Eastman School of
Music where he earned Bachelor of Music
and Master of Music degrees, a Performer’s
Certificate, a chair in the Eastman Brass
Quintet faculty ensemble, and the only
Artist’s Diploma ever awarded a wind player
in Eastman’s history.
Vizzutti’s love of expression through
composition has led to premieres of his works
by the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Budapest
Radio Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic of
London, Nuremberg Symphony, and others.
His newest jazz recording, Ritzville, features
the legendary Chick Corea, Stanley Clarke,
and Los Angeles jazz stars.
As artist-in-residence, Vizzutti has taught at
leading universities throughout the world
including the Eastman School of Music,
Banff Center for the Performing Arts, and
Trompeten Akademie of Bremen, Germany.
His extensive treatise, The Allen Vizzutti
Trumpet Method, and his New Concepts for
Trumpet (Alfred Music Publishing) have
become standard works for trumpet study
Allen Vizzutti is a Yamaha Performing Artist.

Doc Severinsen, TRUMPET
“Heeeeere’s Johnny!”
That lead-in, followed
by a big band trumpet
blast, was a landmark in
late-night television.
The ‘Johnny’ was
Johnny Carson, the
announcer was Ed
McMahon, and the
bandleader was Doc Severinsen. Beginning in
October 1962, The Tonight Show with Johnny
Carson ruled the night air for 30 years.
Within a week of the final telecast, Doc
Severinsen and his Big Band were on the
road, performing Ellington and Basie
standards, pop, jazz, ballads, big band classics,
and, of course, The Tonight Show theme.
Severinsen can still blow hard with his horn
and hit the high notes; and as a bandleader,
he continues to surround himself with the
best in the business.
He performs with symphony orchestras all
over the country and has been principal pops
conductor with the Phoenix Symphony,
Milwaukee Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra,
Colorado Symphony, Pacific Symphony, and
the Buffalo Philharmonic. His last RPO
appearance was in April 2006.
A Grammy Award winner, Severinsen has
made more than 30 albums—from big band
to jazz-fusion to classical. In 2006, Severinsen
moved to San Miguel de Allende in Mexico,
ostensibly to retire from performance. Within
weeks, he was jamming with the magnificent
guitarist Gil Gutierrez, later releasing the CD
El Ritmo de la Vida. Since moving back to the
States, he tours extensively with Gutierrez in a
quintet called The San Miguel Five,
performing a mix of Latin and Gypsy jazz
and standards to exceptional acclaim.
Jim Pugh is a distinguished trombonist,
composer, and educator.
His creativity knows no

In 1988, he came to the United States as a
Fulbright Scholar, obtaining master’s degrees
from Yale University. He completed a Master
of Music degree in orchestral conducting at
