" I got my job through Univer-sity of Chicago alumni.The company where I had been an attor-ney and corporate officer for several yearswas the loser in a decidedly unfriendly take-over. As part of my resulting job search, Icontacted the New York régional Alumni Relations Office and learned that the officemaintained a list of alumni willing to assistother alumni with career advice. I contactedmany alumni on the list and found most ofthem to be gracious and eager to providetheir advice. One of the persons I contacted,Daniel Willis, [AB'74, supervising staff analyse New York City Comptroller's Office] ledme to my current position with the légal de-partment of the New York City Public Development Corporation.I would like to use this forum to thankthose alumni who provided their time andencouragement. In addition, I urge the Uni-versity Office of Alumni Relations to keepthèse kinds of resources more current (thelist of alumni I used had not been updatedsince 1983) and to spread the word about theavailability of such a valuable resource.Frederick L. Miller, JD'71New York, NYREMEMBER RENNIE ANDTONIGHTAT8:30?Editor:Mark Hollmann's WINTER/87 article onthe campus théâtre scène was fascinatingand I would like to offer some additional information about the period before I graduat-ed from the Collège in 1951.The Tonight at 8:30 company was thebrainchild of Rennie Anselmo, [AB '51] whowas always bursting with créative ideas andknew how to get things organized. Told hecould not put on full-length plays in compétition with the University Théâtre, Rennieworked out a compromise with the administration: he would put on only one-act plays.Prohibited from the using the main théâtrefor his productions, Rennie found an un-used space that, if I remember correctly, wasunder the roof of Ida Noyés Hall, and turnedit into a theatre-in-the-round. [Editor's Note: It was the third-floor théâtre in Ida Noyés. ]Ail the disadvantages were turned intoadvantages. The one-act plays, for example,gave more people a chance at directing, andmore actors were able to play some verygood parts. And a great many young theatri-cal talents got a chance to compress years ofexpérience into a few short months.The productions were wonderful andstill live in my memory. Recently I ran acrossa review I wrote for the Maroon and I am en-closing a copy. Some of thèse people did nothang in there and earn their degrees, butthey found something just as important:they found that first step up into their ca-reers, and the art form we call théâtre.Just a note about South African invest-ments: I would never support South Africaand would never consider doing businesswith them. Still, I would not withhold contributions to the University or the alumnifund over this or any other issue. I would notbe willing to either sink the ship or rip up thesails because the skipper made a bad call.Life is full of bad calls.Stanley B. Gilson, Jr., AB'51New York, NYWHAT ABOUTTHE GSB FOLLIES?Editor:I read with interest Mark Hollmann's article "Of Bubbles and Bangs ..." in the win-ter édition of the University of Chicago Magazine. I participate in amateur productionsmyself in the Cleveland area and enjoy dra-ma immensely.I write to highlight what was absentfrom the article, a description of the Gradu-ate School of Business Follies which wereinitiated in 1975 and to my knowledge continue to this day. While I cannot comment onthe current productions, I know that the firsttwo (1975 and 1976) and reunion productions of 1981 and 1986 were original productions which were written and composed byourselves to include choreography andproduction.I hope Mr. Hollmann will continue tocontribute to the Magazine.Peter H. Calfee, MBA'76Cleveland Heights, OHMORE ON DIVESTMENTEditor:The letters on South African investmentare oversimplified, because they do not consider the stock market mechanics, which in-dicate that we are in the third leg of a bull market which began in August 1982, andwill probably end in 1988, so the next bearmarket will start in 1989, like the so-called"Carter bear market" started in 1977.Cognizant of this, the trustées will probably sell their investments next year, andreap whatever profits hâve accrued on thesaleby then.To pinpoint the moral implications, aprofessor who favors investments whichbenefit apartheid could be called "professoregregious," with appropriate generaliza-tions, thereby creating the "egregii" as a log-ical compliment to the emeritii— an innovation which is long overdue, and has obviousapplications.Kenneth J. Epstein, SM'52Chicago, ILEditor:I never f ail to marvel at the diverse view-points in Letters to the Editor. Thus "Reactionsto Divestment Position" was fascinatingreading in your Fall issue.May I state that I don't care whether theUniversity of Chicago divests or not. In this,l'm sure I am part of the large majority ofalumni.I hold this view despite a strong lack ofdésire to re-run 1939 Germany ....My "don't care" view dérives from inadéquate information and uncertainty aboutcauses and effects.The advocates of disinvestment need toaddress the conséquences in South Africa,and then in the world, of shifting power. Dothey conjure up the "noble savage, "or a pic-ture of a repressed people who'd like revenge as well as power? Power to do what?What happens to the South African econo-my? Is change an invitation to a re-run of1929, or control from outside Africa? Whatimpact does high illiteracy hâve on gov-erners and government, démocratie or no?The "morally right" thing involves ail this.Those who do not want to divest need toindicate if they merely want the status quo, orsee a way through éducation to realisticallyraise hopes and abilities to create an intelligent, i.e., moral, partnership.

Académies has lit-tle to do with the nature of composition, but in today's world ofmusic, the person who wishes to makehis profession as a composer often mustteach composition in order to make a liv-ing. In Beethoven's day, some composers enjoyed the benefit of one or morepatrons who commissioned works on amore-or-less regular basis. In thèsetimes, money from composition prizesand commissions usually cannot beginto support a composer. So composersmust make concessions to the necessityMark Ray Hollmann, AB'85, is the staff writer/or The University of Chicago Magazine.of a regular paycheck in order to continue as artists. Even Beethoven, for thatmatter, had to take students."Most of my composing, I'm afraid,is done during the summer, " said RalphShapey referring to his academic-yearresponsibilities as professor of music. Ifthat's true, then Shapey has done won-derful things in the summers of his life-time: he has received many honors inacclaim of his excellence as a composer.Perhaps the most prestigious of those,the $288,000, five-year fellowship whichhe received from the John T. andCatherine D. MacArthur Foundation in1982, confirmed his stature in music— astature built on such works as the orchestral pièce Ontogeny (1958) and theoratorio Fraise (1962-71)."Ralph is quite the gran seîior, " saidGordon Marsh, a doctoral student inthe department. "It's very stimulatingfor me to be with people I respect, and Iadmire him greatly." At the time, Shulamit Ran had received widespread récognition for herwork as a composer. She began composing as an eight-year-old in her native Israël; at the âge of fourteen,Léonard Bernstein invited her to perforai as a pianist in a televised New YorkPhilharmonie concert which featuredone of her first orchestral compositions,the piano concerto Capriccio. At the âgeof twenty-six, she had already had aprominent career as a composer andpianist. That's why Ralph Shapeycouldn't believe that Shulamit Ranwanted him to teach her."He said, 'Look: if you're going tostudy with me, then I hope you don'tmind, but we will start from the point atwhich I start with everyone, whatevertheir stage happens to be,' " Ran re-called. "And no, I didn't mind. That wasexactly what I was interested in."Shapey calls this common startingpoint his "basic course" in composi-Easley Blackwoodplays one ofthefifteen existingScalatrons, aninstrument usedto produce microtonal scales. That admiration cornes fromboth faculty and students. Forexample, one of Shapey's moreexceptional pupils actually began her study with him after she joinedthe music department's faculty as assistant professor in 1973."I came to him in the summer of1976 and said, 'Ralph, how about teach-ing me? ' He nearly dropped to the floor,he was so stunned and surprised." tion. While he spent the 1985-86 académie year as a distinguished professorat Queens Collège of the City University of New York, erstwhile student Rantook over Shapey's class of incominggraduate composition students, teach-ing the same basic course she had learn-ed from him almost a décade before.This winter and spring she has beenusing the basic course as part of hercomposition teaching at Princeton University, where she is visiting professorfor the remainder of the académie year.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAG AZINE/SPRING 1987This basic course, which Shapeytaught in New York for fifteenyears bef ore he joined the facultyin 1964, comprises one of the firstStaples of most graduate compositionstudents' curricula. With it, Shapeyhopes to take his students, who eachhâve particular strengths and weak-nesses as composers, and "fill in theholes in their foundation."Once a student has completed thatcourse, he may continue to study composition on an individual basis withone or more of the four compositionteachers on the department's facultyWhich one(s) he chooses dépendsgreatly on the style of composition hewishes to pursue. Though composersgenerally shun such categorizations,each has a prédilection for one or moreidioms of composition. Shapey, Ran,and Howard Sandroff, director of thedepartment's electronic music studio,compose music in an idiom commonlydescribed as "atonal," which refers tothe lack of a harmonie center in themusic.To appreciate thè présence of a harmonie center, try singing the first threenotes of the children's song "ThreeBlind Mice." The first note you sing,with the word "three," is part of thetriad based on the first scale degree,which music theorists call the "tonic."The second note ("blind") is part of thetriad based on the fifth degree of thescale (dominant), and sets up a désire inthe listener's ear to hear some sort ofresolution. (Note that if you stoppedsinging the melody at this point, afterthe two notes, the resuit would notsound particularly complète or satisfy-ing.) The final note ("mice") again usesthe tonic triad. In the implied harmonyof only three notes, we hâve corne fullcircle: state of rest; state of conflict,waiting for resolution; and state of rest.This harmonie progression of tonic -dominant-tonic summarizes in its ut-most simplicity the structure of most ofthe music heard today, both on the radio and in concert halls: "tonal" music.When composers early in this centurybegan to write "atonal" music, withoutharmonie centers (without that aurallysatisfying tonic-dominant-tonic progression, among other things), they didso with the conviction that everythingto be done in tonal music had alreadybeen done by Beethoven, Brahms, andother great composers.The académie community nevercompletely embraced this type of mu sic. For instance, Paul Hindemith, thecomposer, theorist and violist whotaught at Yale University from 1940 to1953, maintained that the tonic-dominant-tonic progression is to musicwhat gravity is to the earth. Try to resisteither one, he said, and you deny thevery laws of nature.One of Hindemith 's students atYale was Easley Blackwood,professor in the Department ofMusic and the Collège and an-other of Chicago 's teachers of composition. In the last two years Blackwood,who has taught at the University since1958, has made a shift in the f ocus of hisown composition from an atonal back toa more conservative tonal idiom—supporting, in a way, the views of hisformer teacher.For example, Blackwood composeda récent work, the Sonata for Cello andPiano (1985), in a style that resemblesmusic written in 1845 while maintain-ing an individual and modem idiom. Itexpresses his "deep personal conviction that there yet remain originalthings to do within a framework of theconventional éléments of tonality."Ironically, Blackwood partly based hisdécision to become more conservativeon his ground-breaking discoveries inthe study of microtonal music.Microtonality divides the octave—which in Western music has traditional-ly had twelve equal intervais— intomore than twelve. Using précise electronic equipment which has only become available in the last dozen years,Blackwood has studied the ramifications of thirteen- to twenty-four-tonescales, applying them to expand theharmonie possibilities of the conventional twelve-tone scale,His work, which includes a record album, Twelve Microtonal Etudes pr ElectronicMusic Media (one étude for each scale),and notes for a fortheoming book on thesubject, has made him, according toOMNI Magazine, a "pioneer" in microtonality. In order to proceed with his trail-blazing scholarship, however, Blackwoodhad to fight against established opinion."I had great difficulty getting support from référées at the NEH [the National Endowment for the Humanities,which eventually funded Blackwood'smicrotonal study] because they saidthat there is a consensus among theorists that certain of the tunings— in "Is it hard work? Oh boy,is it hard work. Is itfrustrating? Oh boy, is itfrustrating. Will you makelots ofmoney? Like hell.Ifyouwanttobeacomposer for famé andfortune, there's thedoor."Right: Shulamit Ranhas been composingsince she was eight.She also has had acareer as a concertpianist. Facingpage:Howard Sandroffin the music department's electronicmusic studio.particular, fifteen and sixteen notes—were of no musical worth. Well, thoseréférées were correct. There was indeedsuch a consensus. The only troublewas, they were ail wrong."That field is just about to take off, Ithink . I'm pretty sure that as soon as thenext génération of synthesizers is avail-able, you're going to find commercialmusic using the other tunings. In f act, Ihâve a sub rosa project right now: I'mtalking with several musicians . . .about the possibility of collaborating ona rock album. We're already modifyingthe guitars for fifteen-note equal tun-ing," said Blackwood, who obviouslynever tires of the search for new possi-bilities in music.Another faculty member whohas developed an expertise inelectronic technology for composers, Howard Sandroff hasserved as lecturer and director of thedepartment's electronic music studiosince 1983. As such, he teaches classesin the use of computers, synthesizersand other electronic instruments for thecomposition and performance of music. As far as his own work is con-cerned, however, Sandroff does notwant to be pigeonholed."I get really bugged when peoplesay that I am an 'electronic' composer.I'm just a composer, period. Thèse de-vices are simply another type of musical instrument, that's ail," he maintained."Computers and synthesizers are veryflexible and interesting. Composers whoignore or dismiss them do themselves adisservice."Sandroff does indeed compose formore conventional musical forces: hislatest work, the Concerto for Piano andOrchestra, received its world premièrein February by the Fairbanks, AK, Sym-phony under the direction of BarbaraSchubert, X'79, director of performinggroups in the music department andconductor of the University SymphonyOrchestra.In fact, one of the ways in whichelectronic music has given composersmore options is that music composedfor conventional instruments can be re-alized with electronic média. (One real-izes music electronically by actuallyprogramming the computer, amongother processes, to produce the soundsdesired.) Since, however, electronicmédia hâve sonic capabilities whichconventional instruments do not, composers make best use of the technologywhen they conceive their music withthose capabilities in mind, "literallydesigning the sound from the ground-up, " as Sandroff described it. For example Matt Malsky, a graduate studentin composition, did so with his Frieze,a work which he composed underRan's and realized under Sandroff'ssupervision."I think this is a great and excitingtime to compose music because of the6 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/SPRING 1987infinité possibilities available," Sandroff said. He added, "It's also a terribletime to try to maintain the profession ofbeing a composer, because nobodycares."Sandroff referred to the weak de-mand for new music among concert-goers. Many people find the atonalityprévalent in "modem music" uncomfort-ably jarring and dissonant compared tothe continuai flow of suspension and resolution which gives so-called tonality itsforce of musical "gravity," as Hindemithwould hâve it. Composers who wish toexplore the possibilties of new and différent sounds must accept the f act that theirwork remains relatively unpopular withthe public.Blackwood, who has himself composed works in the atonal idiom, said,"The first atonal composers who wererejected around 1910 or 1915 said,'Don't worry— our time will corne. Ailinnovations are rejected at the outset,but just you wait .' Well, how a long a trial period do you need? Seventy-fiveyears hâve passed now and, accordingto my way of looking at it, the experi-ment has been performed and the re-sults are in: the audience for that musicisvery small."If practically no one listens, thenfor whom do composers compose?The answer, necessarily is thatthey compose for themselves."One of the things I learned fromRalph is to try not to pay too much attention to what people say about yourmusic," said Jorge Liderman, AM'86, adoctoral candidate in composition."Just write what you want. If you reallybelieve that what you are writing is thething that you hâve to be writing, justdo it."Ran, another of Liderman's composition teachers hère, explained f urther howshong-minded the composer must be."You should be a composer only if it is anall-consuming passion, if you can't possi-bly be happy doing anything else," shesaid. "It has to be an obsession— a com-pulsion— a need— an absolute must, because otherwise the rewards in normalterms are quite poor, and of ten can lead togreat frustration and unhappiness.""Is it hard work?" asked Ralph Shapey of composition. "Oh boy, is it hardwork. Is it frustrating? Oh boy, is it frustrating and how. Will you make lots ofmoney? Like hell. If you want to be a composer for famé and fortune, there'sthe door."What do you want to be a composer for, anyhow? What is a composer,even?" Shapey demands of his students. "A composer, as far as I'm con-cerned, is an architect in sound, of time,offlux."His students— for that matterany students of composition—might well ask in return,"What do we need a teacherfor, anyhow?""In many signif icant ways I hâve al-ways considered myself a self-taughtcomposer," said Ran. "In many signifi-cant ways I felt that I learned the mostfrom looking at scores, from listening tomusic, from thinking about music, andfrom immersing myself in music fromprésent and past. The more I knowabout music, the clearer it becomes tome what a complex, rich, diversif ied ac-tivity it is— and how impossible it is toteach in just a class time from 10:00 to11:20 in the morning."On this question, Shapey himselfsaid, "You know, the fact is everyonecould sit in a room and read and hâve amagnificent record collection and amagnificent library of scores whichthey hâve the so-called talent to read.The composer wouldn't need a teacher.He could do it by himself."Shapey went on. "Now, the only "Iget really bugged whenpeople say that I am an'electronic' composer. I'mjust a composer, period.Thèse devices are simplyanother type of musicalinstrument, that's ail."différence is that if you do that by your-self, it might take a good twenty, thirtyyears— who knows how long? And soyou go to a teacher to shorten that period of time, because he supposedly, orshe, has the expérience to help and toguide you along the way you are going—what you want to do."I tell my students that, well, I'mone year older than they are— at leastone year older— and they corne to mefor that one year more of expérience."According to Blackwood, therecornes a time when a student has ab-sorbed the benefit of one teacher's expérience. "I think three years is aboutthe maximum, désirable time for a composition student to study with the sameteacher, " he said. "You've really showna student just about everything youknow at that point. The third year, ifanything, is just tying up loose ends."Whether the period of studylasts three years or more orless, the interaction betweenstudent and teacher involves a process which varies as the individual personalities vary. Most teachers,however, use the term "technique" todescribe the most important lesson ofthe beginning of their relationship withcomposition students.Shapey maintained that his basiccourse teaches technique as simply atool— albeit an important one— for thecomposer. "To hâve flight with theimagination," he said, "you hâve tohâve the tools to build with."Once the student composer has histools, then the issue of what the teachershould do becomes less clear. "There's awhole realm of compositional issuesbeyond technique and they are muchmore difficult to discuss," said Sandroff. "To teach what you do, which really lies within the realm of magie, youmust be able to articulate your ideas toyour students."Your students corne in and handyou thèse pièces of paper, which youlook at while they sit there waiting foryou to say something," he continued."It's not like teaching a class where youhâve three nights or three weeks orthree years to prépare. You've got tenseconds now to prépare before you saysomething useful.""The best thing that an instructorContinued on page 28 Small Department -Large Involvements departments go, the Univer-I sity's Department of Music isS; very small— it has eleven facul-; ty members. Out of ail proportion to its size, the department plays animportant rôle in the life of the University community— it provides faculty,students, staff, and neighborhood résidents with doubly delightful opportu-nities: to make music, and tolisten toit."Although we are an académie department, our commitment to performance is enormous." Ellen Harris,AM'70, PhD'76, associate professorand chairman of the Department of Music, sat in her office in Goodspeed Hallas she talked about the department sheheads."People corne hère to learn how tocompose music, and to do researchabout music, but a composer needs tohear his or her music, just as a studentof music history or theory needs to hearthe music he or she is working on, sothe department is, by necessity, a service department. We make music ail thetime," she said.Making "music ail the time" involves between 300 and 400 people fromthe University community. The department, explained Harris, maintains sixperforming groups. Thèse include the100-member University Symphony Orchestra; the 100-member UniversityChorus; the 30-member UniversityChamber Orchestra, which consists of asélect string ensemble ("they bring inwinds when they need them"); the NewMusic Ensemble, "which is somethingof a floating group," devoted to the performance of twentieth-century music;the 36-member University Motet Choir,which performs a capella music of thesixteenth-through twentieth-centuries;and the Collegium Musicum, a consortthat performs médiéval, renaissance,and baroque vocal and instrumentalmusic. There are six groups in the Collegium: a recorder consort; a baroque en semble; a renaissance mixed consort; aviol consort; a solo group of singers; anda solo group of instrumentalists.Ail of thèse performing organiza-tions hâve concerts at least once a quar-ter; some hâve two. Some go on tour.The Motet Choir, conducted by BruceTammen, AM'74, (who also directs theUniversity Chorus), has just completeda five-city tour during which it ap-peared before alumni groups in Détroit,Cleveland, Washington, DC, Philadel-phia and New York. (On May 10 thechoir will perform a concert hosted bythe University of Chicago Club of Mil-waukee.) The Department of Music isresponsible for planning, producing,rehearsing, and performing ail thèseconcerts. "We hold auditions in the fall;for some groups, ail year long. We do ailour own publicity and programs. Wehâve ten directors and conductors onthe performing staff, in addition to ourfaculty," said Harris.;%&::¥>:• he new rehearsal/recital hallS on the fourth floor of Goodspeed Hall, which in 1980 wascreated from the former Clas-sics reading room, and extensive rénovations in Mandel Hall, hâve enabledthe department to présent such anextensive list of programs, Harrisexplained."We consider the relationship between scholarship and performanceimportant at ail levels," she continued."That is, music needs to be heard. Forexample, we are researching early music hère, so we want to perform it. Wehâve composers hère at the graduatelevel studying composition; we want tobe able to perform their works and givethem an opportunity to hâve theirworks performed."We also believe in a combination ofscholarship and performance. For example, Philip Gossett, [the Robert W.UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAG AZINE/SPRING 1987Reneker Distinguished Service Professor of Music] whose f ield is nineteenth-century opéra, has worked as a consultant to the New York City Opéra, theLyric Opéra of Chicago, Chicago OpéraTheater and St. Louis Opéra Théâtre intheir productions," she said. In fact,Gossett is called into opéra housesaround the world to assist in productions. Gossett is editor of The Works ofGiuseppe Verdi, a critical édition of thecomposer's music being put out jointlyby the University of Chicago Press andCasa Ricordi, the Italian publishinghouse."Another scholar-performer on ourfaculty is Charles Rosen, professor inthe Committee on Social Thought andthe Department of Music, who is re-nowned as an astute and perceptivecritic," said Harris. "He writes for NewYorkReview ofBooks, but he is also a pro-fessional pianist with a very active performance schedule. He teaches at bothgraduate and undergraduate levels."arris is, herself, a singer. HerI operatic rôles with the Reper-| tory Opéra Théâtre of Chicagof hâve included the rôles ofPamina and First Lady in Mozart's DieZauberflote; Susanna in Mozart's Le nozzeai Figaro; Sophie in Massenet's Werther;Cio-cio-san in Puccini's Madama Butterfly; Mother in Menotti's Amahl and theNight Visitors; Lucy in Menotti's The Téléphone; and the title rôle in Holst's Savitri.She has performed in several Gilbertand Sullivan operettas, and has ap-peared many times as a soloist in orchestral performances, including Mozart's Requiem at the Cathedral of St.John the Divine in New York."It makes no sensé to hâve a musicdepartment that sits in the library " saidHarris. "There are departments that aresolely oriented toward scholarship andthere are conservatories that are oriented toward performance. We don't hâve aconservatory. We don't hâve a school ofmusic. We do not offer performance forcrédit. Performance hère is completelyextracurricular, but it is an intégral partof one's musical éducation and training.It is that combination that makes ourprogram very spécial."Harris is not alone in her opinionabout the program's spécial qualifies. In a 1984 nationwide survey of collègeprofessors, the Council for the Ad-vancement and Support of Education(CASE) ranked the Department of Music at the University in a three-way tiefor first place with the music departments at Princeton University and theUniversity of .California-Berkeley."They do this rating every three or fouryears," Harris explained.Even before the CASE survey drewattention to the department, its six performing groups had no shortage of participants. Auditions hâve regularlyturned out members of the community,as well as faculty and students."We are open to everyone but wehâve always tried to give priority ofplace to registered students," explained Harris. "We feel they are themost important group that we are hèreto serve. Interest by students keepsgrowing. We hâve had enormous participation from freshman and sopho-more classes in the last two years."The quality of our performinggroups has risen greatly over the pastfew years. Of course, the better yourgroup is, the more attention it gets andthe more people want to perform in it.People become fascinated by the inter-esting répertoire we do."The University of Chicago Sym-phony Orchestra, under the directionof Barbara Schubert, X'79, has receivedwidespread attention; the orchestrawas invited to go on a f if teen-day tour ofYugoslavia, Hungary, and Austria lastJune, where it played to sellout crowds.Members of the orchestra who madethe tour included faculty, staff, students, (including many undergradu-ates) and people from the community.Occasionally the department findsitself overwhelmed by its own success.Five years ago the department initiated auniversity- wide concerto compétition." We planned to hâve it each year; the win-ners of the compétition, depending onwhich instrument and pièce they perform, are given an opporrunity to perform with either the symphony orchestraor the chamber orchestra," said Harris."Two years ago we had such an astonish-ing turnout and so many winners, somany people who were clearly qualified,that we did not hâve a compétition lastyear because it took us two years to playail the concertos out."

It is one of thirteen Universitiesof Paris in the capital city and its sur-roundings. There are a total of seventy-four such universities in the country.But of course the buildings where Itaught, located between the rue de Sorbonne and rue St. Jacques, still hâveabove the doors the name carved instone— SORBONNE. And the members of the faculty of Paris IV disdain thenumerical désignation and refer tothemselves as professors at the Sorbonne. Many remember the révolutionwith bittemess. The Sorbonne was at-tacked with spécial fury because it hadbecome a symbol of ail that was reac-tionary and intransigent in the Frenchuniversity System. De Gaulle, I wasJames E. Miller, Jr., AM'47, PhD '49, is theHelen A. Regenstein Professor and formerchairman in the Department ofEnglish Lan-guage and Literature. He spent the académieyear 1984-85 and fall 1986 teaching at theUniversity of Paris IV, which, as he relateshère, was formerly called the Sorbonne. told, abandoned the universities to thestudents. The désignation of the Sorbonne as Paris IV was the bureaucratieattempt to deprive it of its identity— anidentity which went back to 1257, whenthe Sorbonne was opened as quartersfor theology students.I arrived in Paris with some notionsabout the French and France. I had beenthere before, the first time after aFulbright year, 1958-59, teaching in Na-ples and Rome, driving a small Fiat 600:an American family of four with twochildren in the back seat and three largesuitcases tied on top ... .A later visit inFrance, in the mid-1960s, found meleading a National Council of Teachersof English tour of England and thecontinent.Soon I was settled into the routineof teaching my two courses, one a lecture course in the history of Americanliterature, the other a seminar in postWorld War II American fiction. I shallnot try to explain fully the French System of higher éducation because I donot understand it, and at times I sus-pected that many of the French did notunderstand it either. In the English department, the courses met once a weekand lasted year-long. They began in lateOctober and ended a bit past mid-May.There was a Christmas vacation, a win-UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/SPRING 1987ter vacation, and a spring vacation.There were also other shorter breaks, asthe one for Liberation Day (comme-morating the libération of France inWorld War II). For my history of American literature lecture course, which Imet one hour once a week, I wouldguess that I met it less than half the timeI would meet such a course in an American university. My seminar met for twohours a week for the year, but I covereda little less than the amount of materialI would cover in a one-quarter seminarhère. But I hasten to add that in contrastwith my students hère who are ail native speakers of English, nearly ail mystudents in France came to English as asecond or third language.¦A_ n France, there are three cycles ofhigher éducation a student may under-go. The first two years lead to a diplomain gênerai studies or scientific studies.The second cycle lasts for two yearsalso, but each year leads to a degree, thefirst Licence es lettres, the second Maîtrise.You may take the third year Licence asthe rough équivalent of our B.A. Students in my lecture course were Licencestudents. The fourth-year Maîtrise students in English were required to writea thesis of fifty to a hundred pages, inEnglish. You can see that the Maîtrisestudents were roughly équivalent toour master of arts students. I had someof thèse in my seminar, but I also haddoctoral students along with auditorsand such. Although only two years ofcourse work and a dissertation were required for the doctorate, so far as I couldtell it was not unusual for a studentto spend ten years and more workingon the degree. To my astonishment Ilearned that the dissertations on American or British literary topics were writ-ten not in English but in French.This System may sound simple sofar, but there is a wild card in the deck, ajoker if you will, and that is the agrégation, a national examination which iscthe coveted ticket of admission to teach |in the French secondary schools, a ca- Jreer common to those who finally end cRight: James E. Miller, Jr. ~"I decided the time had cornefor me to summon ail mydramatic skïlls and to turnloose ail my suppressedham instincts. . . I wouldplay to both the orchestraand balcony. "up teaching in the universities. Thusbetween the Maîtrise and the Ph.D.stands the agrégation, given annually. InEnglish this examination involves sev-eral written and oral sessions over someeight or ten texts in English and American literature. The texts are announcedeach spring, and the exam given about ayear later. Each year, out of 700-800 students taking the exam, only some sev-enty to eighty students pass. A studentwho has passed the agrégation and be-come a professeur agrège, but does nothâve the Ph.D., will hâve a better careerthan a Ph.D. without the agrège. Thepath to the best académie career (andpromotion to full professor) is to hâveboth the agrège and the Ph.D. Moreover,the agrège is a distinction that will assuresuccess in other fields— civil service,foreign service, etc.You might then, understand whythe students become intense, even ob- sessed, about passing the agrégation.The rôle the universities play is important and unusual. At the universitiesthroughout France, séries of lecturesare devoted to each of the set texts. Theséries consist of twelve hour-long lectures, followed by miniseminars withstudents making set présentations critiquée! by the professor. The students donot hâve to attend thèse sessions, andsome of them try to guess which textswill be emphasized in the exam and lim-it themselves to séries on those texts.The exam is made out by a nationalcommittee. Professors giving the lectures are not consulted and hâve noidea what questions will be asked onthe exam. Students sometimes sit in ontwo séries of lectures by différent professors on the same work, hoping thebiases of one will be countered by thebiases of the other.In English, out of the ten or soworks set, about three are in Americanliterature. I was assigned the task of giving the agrégation course on ThomasPynchon's TheCryingofLot49, primarilyI think, because nobody at the Sorbonne had read the novel or any otherwork by Thomas Pynchon. Luckily Ihad taught it frequently in my modemAmerican fiction courses. But rarelyhad I spent more than two or threesessions on it, in discussions with students. To work up twelve hours of lectures on a 130-page book— around tenpages per lecture if one simply wentfrom first page to last— was indeed anew expérience for me. This 1960s novelset in California opens with the heroinereturning home after a Tupperwareparty. After testing "Tupperware par-ty" on my students, I discovered thattwelve hours probably wouldn't beenough to tell them ail they didn't knowabout the novel's meanings.Some time in the middle of theagrégation course, professors fromaround France who were lecturing onThe Crying ofLot 49 were brought to Paristo hear a lecture and exchange views.An American Pynchon scholar wasflown over and, after delivering his interprétation (already in print) that thenovel was basically a religious quest byOedipa Maas, was roundly attacked bythe French professors, especially thosewith a post-structural Derridean de-constructive point of view. They in-sisted that the novel's meaning wasabout the impossibility of language conveying interprétable meaning. OneMontpellier professor went on at somelength about the disappearance of theauthor from the novel— completely, to-tally— never appearing on any page. Atlast I could contain myself no longer:"But," I said, "though in one senséPynchon does not appear in the novel,in another and deeper sensé he appearson every page, in every sentence. Thenovel is satiric throughout, as every-body agrées, and the satire is critieizingmodem 'Tupperware party' life, theconformity of suburbia, the emptinessof most contemporary pursuits. Thissatire is serious, is meant, is moral, andis clearly Pynchon's criticism indica-ting, in the very core of his absence, hisvery real présence." As I spoke, I feltmyself being placed in the rôle of themoral American, weighed down withhis Puritan héritage, always finding amoral vision in literature, in contrastwith the amoral French, finding onlymeanings about the impossibility ofmeaning, in texts that invited readersonly to play games and to solve puzzlesthat contained no significance beyondtheir clever construction— or their crit-ic's deconstruction.JL^^ ut I hâve strayed too far fromthe Sorbonne. The classrooms where Itaught were in an ugly building in theLatin quarter, only about a five minutewalk from my apartment (near the Panthéon and not far from the LuxembourgGardens) . It was an immense spread of abuilding, a dirty mustard yellow of somefour-five stories in height, with a phallictower shooting up in the middle on therue St. Jacques side, topped with a greendôme. The interior of this large, ram-bling structure was a kind of labyrinth inwhich it was easy to get lost. Room num-bers were of no use unless you also knewthe stairway (designated by letters of thealphabet) to ascend. I was initially led tomy classrooms; otherwise I doubt that Icould hâve found them.The interior of the building is without any redeeming grâce. Long un-kempt corridors with Windows opaquefrom years' accumulation of dirt, onelooking like another, bewilder the new-12 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/SPRING 1987corner. Although many men in greysmocks mill around with a look of self-importance and an air of being in chargeof the building, they never seem to cleananything except now and then a black-board. Whenever I passed throughthèse corridors, I always had to make myway through several long lines of wearystudents waiting to see some bureaucratto get some paper signed. The lines never seemed to decrease in length, but theyoften shif ted from corridor to corridor.My lecture course was held in theMilne Amphithéâtre, located up a distant staircase, five flights up. When Ifirst saw it, I could hâve sworn it was thesetting used in a 1930s movie vaguelymisremembered out of my long-agoboyhood— was it about Pasteur, Dreyfus, Emile Zola? In the movie, an exami-nation was conducted by an imposingarray of learned professors lined up likejudges on a dais, peering throughglasses at the candidate or victim seatedalone below. On this dais from behindthe lectern-like desk running its length,with a blackboard behind, I was to lecture to a large auditorium whose orchestra and balcony could hold at least200-250 people.My class in American literature hadsome 100-125 licence (third year) students. I came into the amphithéâtre at12:00 noon on Tuesdays, at which timemany of the students had been theresince 10:00 a. m. for lectures on American literature by two of my colleagues.They taught courses on two or three au-thors— one f ocused on Hemingway andFaulkner, another on Fitzgerald andWhitman. I was asked to survey thewhole of American literature. Should Iassign a text, I asked. Oh no, I was told,the students will hâve a lot to read inHemingway, Whitman, etc., for theother two segments of the séquence . DoI assign papers or give an examination, Iasked. Oh no, we'll do that in ourcourses. We might ask some questionsabout the history of American literaturein our oral exams.I had been informed that some ofmy predecessors in this Sorbonne ap-pointment I held had been unable tokeep their students, and when the students stopped coming to their classes,the visiting American professors wereleft with nothing to do but see Paris. Ibegan to understand the ambiguouschallenge when I realized that I mustlecture on a subject, before which the students need make no préparationand after which need demonstrate nogain in knowledge or awareness. More-over, I was the professor stuck with the12:00 noon slot, a time sacred to theFrench because of their passion for theleisurely lunch.I decided the time had corne for meto summon ail my dramatic skills and toturn loose ail my suppressed ham instincts. The raised platform and the the-atrical design of the amphithéâtre en-couraged thèse instincts. I would playto both the orchestra and balcony. And Iwould, by astute summary and vividquotation, bring the literary works Iwanted to talk about into the classroomas such real présences as to make mystudents think they were rememberingthem. Also, I would begin each lecturewith personal comments about Frenchand American culture, sometimes withsly comparative points.For example, just before Thanksgiv-ing, a unique American holiday, Idescribed a typical Thanksgiving feast,emphasizing the importance of the tur-key for that day. I portrayed the un-gainliness of this native American f owl,a bird that can neither sing nor fly. And Imentioned Benjamin Franklin's beliefthat the turkey— not the eagle— shouldhâve been made the officiai Americansymbol, not in spite of but because of itsawkwardness. I added that I agreed; asuperpower with a turkey perched atopits flagpole, symbolizing its spirit,could not be ail that menacing, andcould not take itself ail that seriously.On another day I began with a briefaccount of my attempt to absorb Frenchculture by wandering through thestreets of Paris, coming upon a large department store, entering and musingover the merchandise that I could hâvefound in Marshall Field's, and gradual-ly becoming conscious of the familiari-ty of the music piped over the Muzak. Itwas the refrain from Steve Goodman'ssong, "City of New Orléans."I explained the obscurities of thisstanza, and how it was heard frequent-ly on Chicago's "Midnight Spécial"program on radio station WFMT. I thensaid that, to find something French toeat, I had to pass by a McDonald's andtwo Hamburger Kings before finding agenuinely French bistro, Free Time,where my French fries and hamburgerwere an exact replica of McDonald's.That evening, I said, I turned on French télévision to get a sensé of French lifeportrayed on it, and tuned into Le Bleu etle Gris (The Blue and the Grey), a sériai orséries with the closing épisode dra-matizing the assassination of PrésidentLincoln. This American TV séries hadbeen dubbed in French, of course.My students loved this kind of josh-ing, and no doubt marked it down ascorny American humor. But rather thandecreasing, they increased in numbers.Several of them were American students at the Sorbonne, homesick for anAmerican accent speaking the American language. And lest you think mypride too baldly showing in this account, I should add that my studentsstayed with me not for my scholarly at-tributes or even showmanship, but because I was one of the few native speakers of American available to them. Ispoke slowly and distinctly, and I oftenwrote key words and phrases on theboard. In short, I went to great lengthsto make sure they understood, sometimes throwing in French équivalents—which they always found the mostamusing of ail.M¦A. ? .M. y seminar in post- WorldWar II American fiction presented a différent challenge. The students werethere because they were committed toAmerican literature for graduate study,and many of them were specifically in-terested in one or more of the novelists Iwas teaching, one writing a Maîtrise the-sis on J. D. Salinger, another developinga thesis on Ken Kesey and Joseph Heller,and several others interested in Saul Bel-low. I set ten novels for the year. But dis-covering that éditions of Vladimir Nabo-kov's Pale Pire and Donald Barthelme'sSnow White were not available at book-stores, and realizing that we did not hâveenough class meetings left in any event, Idropped those two works. I substitutedThe Crying ofLot 49, which by this time Iknewbyheart.Many of the students in the seminarwere not from France but from what mySorbonne colleagues called third-world countries, usually former Frenchcolonies. I had several students fromTunis, Morocco, and Algeria, one stu-13"As I spoke, Ifelt myselfbeing placed in the rôleofthe moral American,weighed down with hisPuritan héritage, alwaysfinding a moral visionin literature ..."dent from Iran, another from America(she was married to a Frenchman). Onehandsome black man, with the righthand severed at the wrist, doing English as his third language, politely re-fused to anwer questions from fellowstudents about his origins.French seminars thrive on topics.The professor is expected to pass out alist of topics, and the students, after stu-dying the list and deciding on subjectsof interest to themselves, sélect topicsto develop as présentations in class. After the présentation, instead of a discussion, there is a critique by the professor— usually dwelling on the weaknessesor oversights of the présentation. I wastold that the présentations would beoral, not papers simply read.Since I was committed to the old say-ing, when in Paris do as the Parisians do,I decided to follow this pattern, except Iwould insist on class discussion. In my Chicago seminar, I required students tofind topics for themselves (a very important part of development as a scholar),and I insisted that papers be written andpassed out in advance of a meetingwhich then became a class discussion ofthe paper, not a critique by the professor.What happened in my French seminarwas that fewer students than I expectedvolunteered to make présentations,those that did volunteer invariablywrote out their présentations and readthem in class (the paper never turned insince it was assumed to be non-existent),and though I prodded and prodded theclass to discuss the présentations, I end-ed up in the early meetings doing mostof the discussion myself. Gradually Iwas able to move my students towardsomething roughly resembling the discussions of an American seminar, butnot really fully into it.My expérience in France resembledmy expériences earlier on my Fulbrightappointments in Italy and Japan. Thereis a gulf separating professor and student. The preferred method is lecture,with copious note-taking by the students. Rote learning is common; concrète questions with fixed answersproof of mastery in a subject. The informai classrooom, with professor andstudents engaged in dialogue, is rare. Ifthe American System of éducation hasany distinctive quality, it is a commit-ment to éducation as a dynamic pro-cess, a conception of students not asvessels passively waiting in rows to befilled, but créatures of curiosity and intelligence ready to be enagaged in an interchange vital to growth and to becom-ing. This process, this conception,holds as an idéal for ail levels of éducation, from elementary through the mostadvanced. That it is not always ob-served in practice does not lessen itshold on the collective educàtionalimagination in this country.For one of the sessions of the seminar near the end of the académie year, Iinvited my students to my apartment,served some wine and cheese, had adiscussion of Slaughter-House 5, by KurtVonnegut, [AM'71] and then played anumber of American records, from PaulRobeson singing "Old Man River" toWoody Guthrie singing the "Dust-Bowl Blues." The students expressedtheir gratitude, and confided that whatI had done was simply not done at theSorbonne. T.JL. he American literature/Amer-ican studies component of the SorbonneEnglish department is quite large, withsome fifteen to twenty specialists in thefield, perhaps one-fourth to one-third ofthe department. Most departments ofEnglish in European countries hâve farfewer specialists in American literature,with those in England having the small-est contingent. England has only reluc-tantly and grudgingly admitted thatthere is an American, as distinct from aColonial British, literature. The traditionin France of interest in the field goes backto the period after World War I, when therelation between France and Americawas close. It was after that war thatbooks sent from America to France became the nucleus of the importantAmerican Library in Paris.If it were not for this library, American studies in France would be in a badway. For some weeks after my arrivai, Ikept wondering where the Sorbonne library was. At last a friend offered tolead me to it and help me get a card. Onone of the many stairways, about threeflights up, we entered an unmarkeddoor and knocked on another. It wasopened, we were inspected, and almostreluctantly admitted. The physical lay-out seemed designed to discourageuse. As I went through the intricate process of getting a card that would gain forme entrance to the stacks (a privilègenot extended to students), I observed indesign and opération what I can onlydescribe as a bunker mentality: renderapproach unpleasant, access painful,lingering dangerous. I don't recall anystudent mentioning using the library,and many of my senior colleagues hadlet their cards lapse, although they pre-sumably continued research. Thehours of the library are telling: ten tonoon; closed for lunch from 12:00 to2:30; then open again 2:30-4:00.Ail of the professors of Americanliterature at the Sorbonne shared oneoffice, and were permitted its use forone hour a week, for the purpose ofholding an office hour during which tosee students. This arrangement was theusual one, perhaps because of the acuteshortage of space. It is not an arrange-14 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAG AZINE/SPRING 1987ment that encourages professors to beon campus and available for an informai encounter with students or colleagues. Notification of my office hourwas posted in French outside the door:"Monsieur le Professeur James Miller reçoitles étudiants tous les mardis de 15h à 16h, bureau 321" [Professor James Miller re-ceives students every Tuesday from3:00 to 4:00 p.m., office 321.] A ratherformidable, even royal, announce-ment. During my office hour, only rare-ly did a student turn up— and then itwas a student who had studied inAmerica and who knew that Americanprofessors really did expect to talk tostudents. One young licence studentfrom my large lecture course, who hadfinished some high school years inAmerica (he was the son of an international Renault manager and spoke excellent American) came in to discusslaw schools in America. Eventually heasked me to write a recommendationfor him, a request he didn't bother tomake to his French professors becausethey did not know who he was!In glancing back over what I hâvewritten, I realize that I hâve been quitecritical of some aspects of French éducation. Obviously any university thatcould be the place of study as well as theplace of encounter for Jean-Paul Sartreand Simone de Beauvoir cannot be ailbad. On reflection, I might well con-clude that the French System throws thestudent pretty much back on his/herown resources. Brilliant individualsteach and lecture there. Brilliant students corne to Paris, drink coffee andwine in the sidewalk cafés on Boule-varde St. Michel, read books, go tosome lectures, and take exams. Clearly,some way, somehow, the System worksfor some.My year in France, of course, in-volved much more than my classes atthe Sorbonne. My éducation as wellas my students' was at stake. Travel,they say, is broadening. But ever since Iread Ralph Waldo Emerson's "Self-Reliance, " I hâve been leery, in my trav-els, of carrying "ruins to ruins." HenryDavid Thoreau, who never got far out ofNew England, once remarked "I hâvetravelled a good deal in Concord."Thoreau was capable of expanding hishorizons more on a walk out of Concordto Walden Pond than most tourists doon a cruise around the globe.Mainly in Paris I walked the streets, trying, in the Henry Jamesian sensé, togather my impressions. Notre Damewas an easy walk from my apartment,the Louvre a bit further. The Jardin desPlantes was close by, as were the Luxembourg Gardens. It was in the Jardindes Plantes that in 1833 Emerson had(according to his biographer) "one ofthe most mémorable expériences of hislife" : in the Jardin's cabinet of naturalhistory, with its exhibit of "animatedforms" of "birds, beasts, insects,snakes, fish" Emerson felt an "occultrelation between the very worm, thecrawling scorpions & man." In a kind ofevolutionary vision before Darwin, hewrote: "I am moved by strange sympathies. I say I will listen to this invitation." In the Luxembourg Gardens,William Faulkner had set the closingscène of his 1931 novel, Sanctuary. Temple Drake sat there with her father, therich Mississippi judge, who hadbrought her to Paris to escape the luridsexual scandai in which she had beenthe central figure (and cause), andwhich had resulted in the death of aninnocent man. The setting for this brilliant concluding scène seems exactlyright for Faulkner's most absurd, mostexistential novel. In another directionfrom the Luxembourg Gardens, towardthe Seine, on the rue de l'Ancienne-Comédie, one cornes upon the CaféProcope, which claims to be the oldestin Paris. It has a revolutionary air aboutit, with pictures on the walls upstairs ofthe French philosophes, Diderot, Rousseau, Voltaire— and in their midst, Benjamin Franklin. Few Americans realizethat Franklin actually belongs there. Itwas in 1778, when both Franklin (then72) and Voltaire (then 84) turned up atthe Académie des Sciences, then locat-ed in the Louvre. The participants de-manded that the two revolutionarieskiss, French style, which they did. JohnAdams recorded the historié moment inhis diary.One cannot be in Paris long withoutcoming to a new awareness of the longand complicated relationship of theUnited States and France. We call England our mother country and speak ofour spécial relationship with her. But ifEngland is mother, France is midwife—who not only helped at the birth butalso helped keep the angry motherfrom inflicting severe punishment onher rebellious child. General Lafayettebrought some 6,000 French troops to America to fight the British and theirHessian mercenaries. When Americantroops arrived in France in 1917, theycried out, "Lafayette, we are hère."Less than thirty years later, in WorldWar II, they would repeat the cry. Thereis no more moving expérience for anAmerican in France than to visit WorldWar I American cemeteries in the Ar-dennes forest and World War II American cemeteries near the Normandybeaches. The rows and rows of whitecrosses containing names of the deadand their home states hâve an impactfar beyond that of an impersonal math-ematical count of the dead. They arequiet and deep reminders of howFrench and American history is inter-twined. Moreover, close by most of theAmerican cemeteries may be foundneatly kept German cemeteries. To gofrom one to the other is to evoke melan-choly thoughts about forgotten causesand a profound sensé of terrible waste.w W hat did I learn on my yearin Paris? Dislodged from my mind arethe stereotypical views of the Frenchand of Paris. But I think I learned something more, something deeper thanthis. It is hidden somewhere, maybeunformulated, in some sentences I readrecently from what I now find to be a favorite essay, Emerson's "Circles." Perhaps you can listen to thèse sentencesand help dig out their meaning for me:"Our life is an apprenticeship to thetruth, that around every circle anothercan be drawn; that there is no end in nature, but every end is a beginning; thatthere is always another dawn risen onmid-noon, and under every deep a low-er deep opens . . . .Life is a séries of surprises. We do not guess today themood, the pleasure, the power of to-morrow, when we are building up ourbeing . . . .The one thing which we seekwith insatiable désire, is to forget our-selves, to be surprised out of our pro-priety, to lose our sempitemal memory,and to do something without knowinghow or why; in short, to draw a new circle. Nothing great was ever achievedwithout enthusiasm. The way of life iswonderful: it is by abandonment." B15MUSEUMS, GALLERIES,INTERESTING SIGHTSRockefeller Mémorial Chapel5850 S.

That may sound simple, but it takes a while for the studentto realize for himself what seemswrong.Ran: "Attimes you hâve to say, 'Thisis not the best you can do. I expect muchmore from you.' I've been known to saythis and I don't enjoy it."Gordon Marsh, one of her currentstudents, can attest to this. "There's a moment that I think I'il remember always. Ina pièce which I wrote for Shulamit's class,at the point where I wanted a contrastinglyrical moment, I wrote what was natural-ly to me a lyrical moment. I brought it toclass. Shulamit would play our pièces atthe piano, and so it was my turn. Sheplayed my pièce and she just said, 'Surelyyou can do better than this.' That was aturning point for me. It forced me to dosomething I'd never really done, whichwas to search.""It can be very difficult," said Ran."This isn't Ran talking about a pièce composed a hundred years ago . This is something else: this is dealing with you, withthe essence of you, the core of you."Sometimes a teacher's silence canhâve greater power than any wordscould hâve."You go to Ralph and for two or threelessons he may not say anything, " saidLiderman. "He just says, 'Go on.' Butthen, finally, you get to a point where hewill say something— something that isworth ail the other lessons in which hedidn't say anything.""It's a very délicate balance ofknowing when to speak and knowingwhen not to," said Sandroff. "It's in thatgray area, after you've completed theteaching of technique, that you hâve toknow when to help the student make ajudgment and when to keep yourmouth closed and let them find out forthemselves. There's no guarantee that ifyou keep your mouth closed they won'tcorne around to agreeing with you onsomething, and there's no guaranteethat, if you say something, they'll fol-low your advice, either."Shapey does not consider his advice sacred. "Youcanrejectit," he said."You can say, 'Ack! I don't want that.What I wrote, that's what I want.' That'sokay, but at least hâve the ability tomake a choice."When a student composer canmake such choices for himself, then he can begin to think of himself less as astudent and more as a composer. Theend product of ail those choices, the fin-ished composition, gives the composera sensé of accomplishment, as well asthe self-assurance to go on and makemore such choices."The first time I really felt like acomposer was after my violin sonatawas performed," said Nick Palmer,AB'85, who as a graduate studentcomposes under Blackwood's guid-ance. Palmer's work, his Sonata forViolin and Piano, received its premièreat a meeting of the music department'svisiting committee last year."That was really a good thing tohappen to me. Oh, I had my doubtsabout the thing, actually— I didn't knowexactly what it sounded like on the violin. After he played it, the violinist said,'I like it.' That does wonders for yourconfidence."Ran also recalled the first time sheheard her music: "When I was eight and Icomposed my first songs, I was also start-ing piano. My piano teacher, whom I willalways remember, wrote down some ofthe songs that I made up and sent them tothe Israeli radio. Before you know it, I gota letter saying that they would be performed on a program called Children'sCorner by a children's choir. I turned theradio on and there it was."It was the most incredible expérience, " Ran remembered. "For the firsttime I had this awareness of somethingthat I created existing outside of me,having its own independent existence. Iknew right then and there that I wantedto repeat that expérience as much as Ipossibly could. It's an extraordinarysensation." The latest such "sensation"came for her at Carnegie Hall in Febru-ary, when her Concerto for Orchestra,commissioned by the American Composers Orchestra, had its première.Unfortunately, opportunities forcomposers to hear performances oftheir works are limited. "Not only doesevery living composer hâve to competewith every other living composer forperformances," lamented Sandroff."You've got to compete with every composer who's ever lived."Orchestras are muséums," he said."During a lecture to the American Sym-phony Orchestra League on the state ofcontemporary music, I told orchestramanagers and conductors from ail overthe country that an orchestra was a muséum. This one gentlemen stood up andUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/SPRING 1987was outraged that I made the statement.He said, 'No, an orchestra is a placewhere great works of the past are pre-served.' There was this silence aroundthe room, and I didn't say anything because everybody was thinking, 'Ah, he'sright— it's a muséum.'"As a counter to that state of af f airs, theContemporary Chamber Players (CCP) atthe University, which Shapey founded in1964, helps give composers, includingboth students and faculty at the University, a chance to hâve professional performances of their work. Shapey, insists, however, that the ensemble which he leads asmusic director and conductor does notexist merely as an instrument for University composers, nor for composers fromthe city of Chicago."I consider that provincialism, "said Shapey. "I sélect a work on the ba-sis of being an excellent work that I be-lieve we should perform" —and indeed,Shapey's high standards in program-ming and conducting contemporarypièces hâve made the CCP one of thenation's premier new music ensembles.As the CCP's conductor, Shapeythinksof himself as a performer. ("Iguessyou could say, " he venrured, "that the orchestra is my instrument.") The othercomposers on the faculty hâve had ca-reers as professional musicians as well.Sandroff serves as conductor and co-music director of the Chicago-based NewArt Ensemble, also a contemporarychamber ensemble, and works as a professional concert synthesist. Ran andBlackwood, moreover, hâve performedas professional concert pianists."As much as anything, " Blackwoodsaid, "that's just to keep me apprised ofwhat it feels like actually to walk out onthe stage and live in that world, too."He happens to function very well inthat world: in 1986 the chamber musicensemble in which he plays, ChicagoPro Musica, won a Grammy award as"Best New Classical Group" on the ba-sis of its first two record albums.Student composers also realize thevirtue, as well as the f inancial necessityof performing. Nick Palmer plays organevery Sunday at the First PresbyterianChurch in Chicago and accompaniesvarious singers on campus. GordonMarsh performs as a professional pianist and gives lessons as well. This worknot only helps support their studies,but also contributes to their growthas musicians in the complète sensé ofthe word. Though Ellen Harris feels justifiablyproud of her outstanding department[see inset], she recognizes its limitationsand the limitations of academia in gêneraiwith regard to the teaching of composition. "A composer doesn't need a degreein order to be able to compose, " assertedHarris. "That is something that has beenlaid on the composers of our générationbecause the jobs are available through theacadémie System."In fact, I can say with a certainamount of pride that none of our [composition] teachers hâve Ph.D.'s. Whatwe're trying to do is graduate Ph.D.'swho compose as if they don't hâvethem."Just as a composer doesn't need adegree to compose, a composer doesn'tabsolutely need to teach in order tocompose. Charles Ives, perhaps themost important Amercian composer ofthe late nineteenth and early twentiethcenturies, worked for an insurancecompany during the day while he de-voted his nights and weekends to com-posing. Before Philip Glass, AB'56,achieved famé as an avant-garde, mini-malist composer he drove a cab, amongother occupations, to earn a living. Oneneed not teach, but it helps— it helpsthe teacher as well as the student."There are four différent things thatI do as far as music is concerned," saidBlackwood. "I play concerts, I writepièces, I teach students, and I writebooks. I've got four separate careers go-ing— and if you are a professor, you cando that.""I get a kick out of teaching— I reallydo, " said Sandroff. "I enjoy it because Ilearn so much from it. I've learned asmuch from my students as I've learnedfrom my teachers.""I love teaching," said Ran. "I findit extremely créative. I find it exhilarat-ing. I find it just wonderf ul when some-body cornes and maybe after a short orlong while suddenly there is a rediscov-ery a sensé that 'now I hâve a bettergrasp of where to go and what to do.'That moment of enlightenment is verybeautif ul and rewarding for a teacher. Ifsomeone were to tell me, 'You may compose ail you want but you must neverteach again, ' I would miss it terribly. Iknow that."Shapey also spoke highly of teaching composition. "I hâve to formùlatemy ideas, which are always in a state offlux anyhow because I refuse to box myself in," he said. "I keep learning. It's very exciting and very rewarding. It'salso very tiring, but you get a goodnight's sleep and you recuperate fromthat."So when I see a colleague— this happens not hère at the University, but else-where— and he tells me, 'I don't want toteach,' I say, 'That's your problem."'In the end, even compositionteachers realize that no amount ofteaching can convey the power of agreat composer's statement in music.Shapey tells the anecdote aboutBeethoven at a concert in which he performed one of his works for piano. After the composer finished his performance, according to Shapey, "someoneasked him to talk about it, to tell moreabout the pièce. So, he sat down andplayed it again."That's the answer," said Shapey."Music must speak for itself." BCHICAGO JOURNALLAW SCHOOL CAMPAIGNEXCEEDS GOALSThe Law School closed the bookson its major gifts campaign on Decem-ber 31 having exceeded its twentymillion dollar goal by more than fivemillion dollars.The Campaign for the Law School,begun July 1983, raised a total of$25,195,329, accordingto GerhardCasper, William B.
