    SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA Dr. Robert Tueller, Director

    Igor Stravinsky 1882 - 1971

    Featuring BYU-Idaho Music Faculty

    Dr. Matthew Moore, Tuba

    NOTES In 1893, impoverished and unknown Edward Elgar composed his Serenade for Strings at age 35 – still several years before Pomp and Circumstance and Enigma Variations would make him England’s foremost composer and a household name. With several compositions already rejected by England’s major publisher Novello, Elgar scraped a living playing violin (and several other instruments) while taking conducting jobs whenever possible. The Serenade was first “tried out” on the Ladies' Orchestral Class at Worcester. The compact, three movement Serenade is among the first compositions to demonstrate Elgar’s maturing and distinct voice. Listen to the tender melancholy of the outside movements (both sharing the same melody) and the beautiful arching melodies and stirring harmonies of the middle movement – a melodic gift that would ultimately find its place in profound works such as Nimrod from Enigma Variations. Emmy award winner and Academy Award nominee Bruce Broughton is best known for his many film and television scores including Disney’s The Rescuers Down Under, Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey, and its sequel, Lost in San Francisco, and popular westerns such as Silverado and Tombstone. A graduate of the University of Southern California, he has taught at both USC and UCLA. The Concerto for Tuba combines an accessible, melodic style with colorful orchestration, and brilliant, modern harmonies. It demands a wide variety of performing techniques from the soloist including a large range, expressive phrasing and brilliant, light agility. Igor Stravinsky, known for his large, colorful ballet scores, such as The Firebird and The Rite of Spring, often turned to music from the Baroque and Classical eras for inspiration. This style of composition became known as Neoclassicism because it interspersed elements from the 18th century. Danses Concertantes finds its inspiration in the Brandenburg concertos of Johann Sebastian Bach, using the colorful textures of the Baroque Concerto Grosso -- alternating groups of solo instruments with the accompaniment of the entire ensemble. Following an introduction, the piece moves through a series of uninterrupted movements or classical ballet inspired scenes. In addition to early music, Stravinsky was also influenced by American music (particularly ragtime and jazz). This is heard in the theme and variation movement where the listener suddenly encounters tango, ragtime, jazz, and finally a boisterous Irish jig.

    Matt Moore spent most of his growing up years in the small town of Gypsum, Colorado. He attended Weber State University and the University of Utah where he studied tuba with Mark Robinette, Lee Hipp, and Gary Ofenloch. After teaching public school in Utah for three years, Matt joined the faculty at BYU-Idaho in 2007. From 2012- 2014 Matt took a leave of absence to pursue a DMA at the Peabody Conservatory of Music in Baltimore, MD where he studied tuba with David Fedderly. As a performer, Matt has played in every setting imaginable for the tuba. Highlights include performing with the Utah Symphony, Baltimore Symphony, The South Florida Symphony, The Orchestra at Temple Square, and numerous brass quintets, pick-up orchestras, and polka bands. Matt is also married and has four children. When not practicing, he enjoys spending time in his garden or with his family on their dune buggy.
