              Plaque designed by Mr. Dewberry for Mason’s new Steinway grand pianos
George Mason University All-Steinway School
An extraordinary gift of sixteen brand new Steinway grand pianos has enabled Mason to become
an All-Steinway School. Sidney O. Dewberry, former rector of Mason’s Board of Visitors, spearhead-
ed an initiative last spring to make Mason a registered “All-Steinway School.” Through private sup-
port of individual donors and matching funds from the University, the music department has been
able to purchase sixteen top-of-the-line Steinway grand pianos for the deLaski practice
rooms/teaching studios.

All-Steinway Schools provide a commitment to excellence by providing their students and faculties
with the best equipment possible for the study of music. Pianos are critical to every aspect of the
instrumental and vocal programs at George Mason University. This truly transformational gift will
have an enormous impact on the quality of the practice, teaching, and performance situations that
our outstanding music students and faculty encounter on a daily basis. In addition, having superi-
or instruments will help us in recruiting and retaining the very best music students and faculty to
GMU. Becoming an All-Steinway School speaks volumes about a music department because it sym-
bolizes the highest levels of excellence and commitment to quality. George Mason University will
join the ranks of distinguished schools such as the Juilliard School of Music, the Yale School of
Music, and the Oberlin College Conservatory.

     Populares Españolas - Manuel de Falla
(The Moorish Cloth)
Al paño fino en la tienda,                     That cloth so fine on the counter,
Una mancha le cayo;                            If once blemished by a stain;
Por menos precio se vende                      Will sell for little or nothing
Porque perdió su valor. Ay!                    And value never regain.


Meine Liebe ist Grün, Op. 63, No. 5 –
     Johannes Brahms
(My Love is Green)
Text: Felix Schumann

Meine Liebe ist grün wie der Fliederbusch,     My love is green like the lilac bush,
Und mein Lieb ist schön wie die Sonne!         And my love is beautiful like the sun!
Die glänzt wohl herab auf den Fliederbusch,    It shines upon the lilac bush,
Und füllt ihn mit Duft und mit Wonne.          And fills it with fragrance and delight.

Meine Seele hat Schwingen der Nachtigall       My soul has wings of the nightingale
Und wiegt sich in blühendem Flieder,           And floats in the blossoming lilac,
Und jauchzet und singet vom Duft berauscht,    And shouts and sings, overcome by the
Viel liebestrunkene Lieder.                         fragrance,
                                               Many songs that are intoxicated with love.

Morgen! Op. 27, No. 4 – Richard Strauss
(Tomorrow!)
Text: John Henry Mackay

Und morgen wird die Sonne wieder scheinen      And tomorrow the sun will shine again
Und auf dem Wege, den ich gehen werde,         And on the path, where I shall walk,
Wird uns, die Glücklichen, sie wieder einen    It will again unite us, the happy ones
Inmitten dieser sonnenatmenden Erde…           In the midst of this sun-breathing earth…
Und zu dem Strand, dem weiten,                 And to the wide, blue-waved shore
    wogenblauen                                We will quietly and slowly descend,
Werden wir still und langsam niedersteigen,    Mute, we will gaze into each other’s eyes,
Stumm, werden wir uns in die Augen schauen     And on us, will sink the muted silence
Und auf uns, sinkt des Gluckes stummes               of happiness…
    Schweigen…


Zueignung, Op. 10, No. 1 – Richard Strauss
(Dedication)
Text: Hermann von Gilm

Ja, du weisst es, teure Seele                  Yes, you know it, beloved soul,
Das ich fern von dir mich quäle                That it pains me when I am far from you,
Liebe macht die Herzen krank,                  Love makes the heart suffer,
Habe dank.                                     I thank you.
Einst hielt ich, der Freiheit Zecher           Once I, the one who delighted in freedom,
Hoch den Amethysten-Becher                           held
Und du segnetest den Trank                     High the amethyst cup,
Habe dank.                                     And you blessed the drink,
Und beschworst darin die Bösen                 I thank you.
Bis ich, was ich nie gewesen,                  And exorcised the evil ones therein
Heilig, heilig an’s Herz dir sank,             Until I, as I had never been,
Habe dank.                                     Holy, holy onto your heart I sank,
                                               I thank you.

Jean Carrington Cook
(1925-2001)

A native of Richmond, Virginia, Jean Carrington Cook began studying piano at the age of five. Her early teach-
ers included Virginia Wylie, Ellen Guigon and Florence Givens. After graduating from St. Catherine’s School, she
attended Converse College and later, Syracuse University, from which she graduated with a Bachelor of Music
degree in piano performance. During college, her teachers included Ernst Bacon, John Powell, Heinrich
Gebhard, Alexander Lipsky and Thomas Schumacher. As a performer, Mrs. Cook presented concerts through-
out the United States, Europe, Asia, South America, the USSR and Canada. She also appeared with the Syracuse,
Fairfax, and McLean Orchestras, as well as the Frederick Community Orchestra, the Shenandoah Conservatory
Orchestra, and the Shenandoah Festival Orchestra. Locally, Mrs. Cook maintained a teaching practice for many
years and was also an active member of the Northern Virginia Music Teachers Association and the Friday
Morning Music Club. During her lifetime Mrs. Cook earned prestigious music awards including the Conservatory
Medal of Excellence from Shenandoah University; the Career Achievement Award from Converse College; and
the Rose of Honor Award from Sigma Alpha Iota, International Music Fraternity. She released recordings pro-
duced by Scott Dargan of Shield Recording and Dicran Jamgochian of Golden Age. In 1995 Mrs. Cook and her
husband Dr. C. Barrie Cook, were awarded special recognition from the George Mason University Music
Department for their support of the music programs at George Mason University. Until her death in March 2001,
Mrs. Cook performed concerts annually in the fall to raise funds for the Jean Carrington Cook Piano Scholarship
at George Mason University and for the Eugenia Evans Piano Scholarship at Shenandoah University. These schol-
arships were established by Dr. and Mrs. Cook to assist aspiring pianists entering music degree programs at each
of these respective universities. The George Mason University community is indebted to the late Jean Carrington
Cook and her husband, Barrie, for their invaluable contributions to the music programs at George Mason
University.
