Both are indeliblyassociated with two monuments of the School—the Wind Ensemble and the Sibley Library. Fennell built a new model for wind band playing—and a repertory—pretty much from scratch; while Ruth Watanabe didn’t found the Sibley Library,she certainly developed it to its present eminence over a 40-year career. (Seepages 6 and 8 for moreon their remarkable careers.) Both continuedto be generous withtheir time and talentwell after retirement—Fennell visiting Eastmannumerous times to conduct, Watanabe as theSchool’s historian.These two people weredefinitely respected asprofessionals, but theyFrederick FennellRuth Watanabewere also loved as people—see the brief tributes to Fennell by his successors Don Hunsberger and MarkScatterday, or the letter about Watanabe from Beatrice Caro Roxin BM ’49 (page3). Sadness at their passing is tempered by the knowledge that they had long lives,well lived. Indeed, their lives are far from over; their intellectual and musicallegacies can be seen and sensed, not just in this issue of Eastman Notes, but everyday at the Eastman School.Notes welcomes all of your reminiscences of these two great figures in Eastman’s history.EditorPHOTOGRAPHS COURTESY EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC ARCHIVE

LETTERS Souzay celebratedOur last issue of Notes featured a photo ofthe great French baritone Gerard Souzay, whodied in the summer of 2004, during a masterclass at Eastman. As the file photo was undated and the student in it unidentified, weasked readers if they could enlighten us—and they did.The singer appearing in the photographwith Mr. Souzay is Jeff Fahnestock. Jeff andI were in the studio of Seth McCoy. It was awonderful experience for all that were participating and in attendance. Mr. Souzay provided us all with wonderful ideas and insightsregarding the French art song repertoire. Dr.Ben King, who is now Chair of the Voice and/or Music department at Houghton College,impressed Mr. Souzay greatly. So much so thathe (Souzay) invited Ben, in front of all of us,to come study with him in France. I do believethat my recollections of that day are accurate.Seeing this photo has brought back some verypleasant memories of my time at Eastman.—Christopher Jones (MM ’85)Rochester, NYFree the Fennell Five!In searching though the Frederick Fennellfiles in our office after his recent death, wefound this photograph from (we assume) theearly 1950s, showing Fennell with five otherpercussionists.We recognize Fennell, at the far left,but would love to know who the other,unidentified men are.

A CLASSACTIN EVERY WAYA young but already dapper Fred Fennellleads a 1930s precursor of the Eastman Wind Ensemble.6 Eastman Notes June 2005PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY EASTMAN SCHOOL OF MUSIC ARCHIVEABy David Raymondn era in American music came to an end with the death of Frederick Fennell on December 7, 2004, in Siesta Key, Florida.Fennell was born July 2, 1914 in Cleveland, Ohio, and attendedthe Eastman School of Music as a percussion major, receiving hisBA in 1937, and joined the Eastman School’s conducting facultyafter receiving his MS in 1939, remaining here until 1962.Fennell conducted the Eastman Opera Theatre and the Eastman Chamber Orchestra, but will always be remembered as the creator of the Eastman Wind Ensemble. In 1952, encouraged by Director Howard Hanson, Fennell developed amodel for wind band performance with one player to each part, a “chamber music”approach that proved there was much more to band music than Sousa marches.“The innovation that is the Eastman WindEnsemble was in no way radical, “ he wrote;“it simply merged from the music that led“SINCE THE EARLY 1950S, THERE CANme to it.” The Ensemble’s repertory includedHARDLY BE A WIND PERFORMER ORSousa marches, to be sure, but also works byEuropean masters from Gabrieli and MozartCONDUCTOR WHO HAS NOT BEENto Schoenberg and Stravinsky, and manyINTRODUCED TO OR AFFECTED BY THEworks by Americans: Barber, Thomson, HanINNOVATIONS OF FREDERICK FENNELLson, Schuman, and many others.

RuthWatanabeYearsTheThe late Sibley Librarianleft an unparalleled legacyThough she traveled widelyto enrich the Library, RuthWatanabe was never long awayfrom the Sibley stacks.Ruth Watanabe, librarian of the Sibley Music Library for nearly four decades, died on February26, 2005. During those years, she built the Sibley Library into one of the world’s great collectionsof musical scores and research materials. Current Sibley Librarian Dan Zager details “The RuthWatanabe Years, 1947 1984”, in a chapter from A World Treasure, published by the SibleyLibrary to celebrate its centennial in 2004.By Daniel ZagerIf [Watanabe’s predecessor Barbara] Duncan was the great builder of Sibley’srare books collection, Watanabe was the architect of the book, score, and recordings collections Watanabe recalled that Hanson once told her: “You will buyeverything, I mean everything.” By Watanabe’s own admission “it wasn’t quite everything,” but it clearly was impressive development of the collections. In a “Reminiscence” written in the year of her retirement, Watanabe recalled that until theearly seventies she took advantage of favorable exchange rates and traveled to Europe summer after summer “to rummage happily among the shelves of precious books and scoresin France, England, Scandinavia, Germany, and particularly Austria. While I knew theshelves would soon overflow and the cataloging backlog would grow in proportion, I alsoknew the bonanza could not last, and future research had to be provided for. I bought andbought and bought. There were riches to be had and it was simply delightful beyond wordsto spend the University’s money for such a magnificent cause!”For Sibley Music Library’scentennial in fall 2004, Eastmanproduced a historical overviewentitled A World Treasure.The handsome volume, withtext by Daniel Zager, includes30 photographs of select Sibleyholdings.

wrote that “The only solution was storage,and the library’s overflow was housed in fivedifferent places in the Eastman School building and at Rush Rhees Library. ” Renovations of the Sibley Music Library buildingtook place during a series of projects extending from 1974 to 1977, providing some reliefin space needs. Only the next decade, however, would provide the new building thatwould resolve more completely the variousrequirements of collections, staff, services,and library users.As the collections grew, Watanabe led efforts both to share andto preserve the content of the Library. The Sibley Music LibraryMicroprint Service was for decades one ofthe best ways for other libraries to purchasecopies of important primary source documents (such as music theoretical writings)that had been acquired by Sibley.

CONVERSATIONMaking her garden grow: Maria SchneiderBy David RaymondMaria Schneider (MM ’85) hasbuilt an impressive reputationas composer and arranger, highlighted earlier this year with aGrammy Award for Best LargeEnsemble Jazz Performance, forConcert in the Garden.Maria also made a splash recentlyby joining the roster of musicianson ArtistShare, a web platformthat offers a new model formusic distribution, bypassingthe middlemen of retail sales.In fact, Concert in the Gardenwon its Grammy without a singleretail sale — all were online, andthe recording was financed completely by participants in Maria’ssite. As Maria explains here, ArtistShare also give her the chanceto offer something less tangibleto her fans: the experience ofseeing how an artist conceives,writes, and interprets music.Downbeat recently describedMaria as “articulate, intriguing,and always ready to talk aboutmusic.” After talking to her forNotes this spring, we agree.ON THE WEBFor more information,visit www.mariaschneider.com.PHOTOGRAPH BY AMY VETTERTell me about your early years and training.Windom, Minnesota, where I was born, isa typical agricultural town. When I was fiveyears old, a woman came from Chicago tolive here with her daughter. She played jazzpiano and really put her personality into hermusic. Hearing her play was like a magnetfor me. I really knew nothing about jazz, orimprovisation, or jazz history. A kid in thedorms at the University of Minnesota usedto play through his record collection for me,and that was how I discovered modern jazz.I eventually became a theory major — I reallywanted to be a composer, but it seemedpresumptuous of me. Then someone saw thetheory exercises I was working on and toldme, “You’ve got a flair for writing music; whydon’t you become a composition major?”I understand you did not make it intoEastman on your first try.I applied and didn’t get in. But I reallythought Eastman was the place to gobecause I had read Inside the Score, byRayburn Wright [legendary Eastman jazzprofessor], and admired that book so much.Even though I didn’t get in, Ray wrote me apersonal letter, suggesting that I come andstudy during the summer session. Of courseI was thrilled that he wrote!That first summer at Eastman was heaven andhell all at once, three sleepless weeks of fearand ecstasy. The pressure was enormous, butI was so impressed by the place. I originallyplanned to go on to Berklee, but realized I’dbe starting again from scratch, so I went tothe University of Miami instead. That wasgreat, but I realized I needed a more traditional, historic approach — I lacked rootedness and understanding. So I came back toEastman, for a year and a half.Did you remain close to Ray Wright?With all the demands of my first semester,I was ready to bail, but Ray was almost like afather to me — so kind and so generous, andhe was like that to everybody. He had a wayof being really warm, without force. Verydemanding, but you wanted to please him.And such a brilliant musician: I rememberhim in sessions with the studio orchestra,pointing out some tiny mistake in an innerpart in the back of the orchestra, thatnobody else heard.Can you tell a bit about your involvementin ArtistShare? Is it a new model for themusic business?In the old distribution system, if you sell aCD at a record store for, say, 16, first therecord store takes a cut, then the distributor,the credit card company, the manufacturer —and the artist gets paid last. Selling my musicexclusively through the Internet, I am reallyin control, and my piece of the pie is muchbigger. Records have exploited musicians’desperation to be noticed. With older musicians, there’s often an ego thing about a contract with a major label. The Internet gets ridof that whole idea — it’s very powerful.I always hear people say, “Oh my God, thebusiness is so bad!” It’s always gloom anddoom time. Well, I think it’s a much bettertime for the business, because you don’thave to depend on record companies to getyour music out. And there are no anonymoussales — I know the name and e-mail addressof everyone who buys one of my CDs. If youdon’t abuse it, this is a tremendous tool inbuilding an audience.Your site on ArtistShare offers much morethan just downloadable music.Participants can find scores, lectures I haveprepared about exactly how to rehearse apiece, interviews, and session photos. I havemix versions of pieces without the solos, soyou can play along. The site has expandedto be about much more than just music — it’ssharing the process and the artist’s experience. People have said to me, “But you’reputting all your ideas out there!” Myresponse was, “Well why not?”June 2005 Eastman Notes 11
