Susan GRAVES, Musician (1954-2005)
Connecticut-born bassoonist who 'played like an angel' fell in love with chamber music and co-founded Canada's now-famous Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, writes Sandra MARTIN
By Sandra MARTIN, Saturday, October 8, 2005, Page S9
Susan GRAVES, co-founder of Tafelmusik, the internationally acclaimed Baroque orchestra, played the bassoon like an angel and looked as though she had just stepped out of a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti. She had long, wavy copper-coloured hair, blue eyes, freckles, a calm authority and a legendary kindness.
"She had the most beautiful chocolaty, velvety bassoon sound that I have ever encountered," says Jeanne LAMON, music director of Tafelmusik. "She played solos with us frequently in the early years and it was always a highlight for everybody. She was a marvellous musician."
Susan "Susie" GRAVES was the younger child and only daughter of John GRAVES, a chemical engineer and his wife Jane Elizabeth, always known as Betty. Susan went to school in Westport, Connecticut.
"As soon as she learned to read, she took piano lessons," her mother said this week. Every weekday morning, Susan, the Siamese cat Baby, and her mother would get up half an hour early and go downstairs to the family room where Susan practised on an old upright piano. "The cat sat in my lap and when Susan was finished it would get up and walk back and forth across the keys," said Mrs. GRAVES.
At Staples High School, Ms. GRAVES fooled around with an old clarinet that had belonged to her father. Her parents meant to rent a better instrument, but her music teacher said no, we need a bassoon player. Ms. GRAVES obliged and the bassoon became her instrument. "It is not easy to play," her father conceded in a conversation from the GRAVES's retirement home in a suburb of Minneapolis.
After high school, Ms. GRAVES attended the New England Conservatory of Music in Boston where she received a bachelor's degree in 1972 and began studying for her master's. That's where she met her future husband Kenneth (Kenny) SOLWAY, an oboist from Toronto, in October of 1975.
Sharing a love of music and period instruments, they went to Europe together in 1976 to study at the Sweelinck Conservatory in Amsterdam and at the Royal Conservatory of The Hague. "We wanted to play chamber music," her husband said this week from their home in Cobourg Ontario "It didn't matter whether it was baroque or modern."
The couple dreamed up the idea for what is now the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, while they were still in Holland and even played a couple of "table-music" chamber concerts with two Friends. They returned to Toronto in 1978, burbling with schemes and enthusiasm, started the Toronto Chamber Music Collective and presented chamber and orchestral concerts of contemporary and baroque music in small theatres and churches in downtown Toronto.
Their vision was immediately embraced by a number of musicians including double bass player Alison MacKAY, harpsichordist Charlotte NEDIGER and violist Ivars TAURINS all of whom still play with Tafelmusik, more than 25 years later.
"Everything they did in the beginning was exactly the right thing to do," says violinist Jeanne LAMON, who has been music director of Tafelmusik since 1981. Ms. GRAVES and Mr. SOLWAY worked as a team, trying out different people, training modern players in baroque techniques and even landing a Wintario grant to buy bows and wind instruments for the fledgling orchestra and organizing a tour to New York City. "They booked without having an orchestra and pulled it off. We got a good review."
Mr. SOLWAY was the talker with the "go-gettum energy," according to Ms. LAMON, and Ms. GRAVES was the grounded one with the practical skills to write grant proposals and persuade musicians to join them.
"She was a brilliant musician with a beautiful sound and virtuosic technique," said Alison MacKAY. "I regarded her as a mentor." It was "heartrending" at a recent Tafelmusik concert when she recognized Ms. GRAVES's handwriting on the music sheets. "The fact that her presence is still felt, is because her talent penetrated every arena of the organization. She did everything. She played like an angel, she pasted posters on lamp posts, she organized accounts and she wrote out all the parts."
Playing with like-minded Friends and running an orchestra are very different enterprises. "With an oboe in your mouth, you can't talk very much," Mr. SOLWAY explained this week from his home in Cobourg, Ontario "I decided to be general director and to let somebody else do the artistic managing in conjunction with me."
Orchestras often have tensions between the string and wind players and Tafelmusik was no exception. At the same time, imagining an orchestra and running one demand different skill sets. Artistic differences meant that Mr. SOLWAY and Ms. GRAVES went to Vienna to study for a few months and then officially stepped down from the running of the orchestra, although she continued to play with Tafelmusik for a few years.
The couple spent a couple of years in a cabin in Algonquin Park that had belonged to Mr. SOLWAY's family. During winter, their nearest neighbour was 10 miles away by snowshoe. And yet, "those were by far the two most beautiful years of our lives," says Mr. SOLWAY. "We realized then we were near-hermits -- and loved it."
They bought canoe forms from the Chestnut Canoe Company after it disbanded in 1979, and started making and marketing handmade cedar-strip and canvas canoes. After Algonquin Park, they moved to a farm north of Cobourg where they built their own house, raised sheep and grew organic vegetables, which they would bring in to Toronto to sell at the St. Lawrence Market.
Ms. GRAVES began playing as principal bassoonist with the Kingston Symphony Orchestra in the mid-1980s. Gordon FAST became the musical director in 1991.
"In the 14 years I worked with her, she commuted from Cobourg," he said. "That means driving through countless snow and ice storms and I can never remember her missing a concert or a rehearsal."
Besides her dedication, she had a great sense of humour and was always a happy part of the symphony," according to Mr. FAST.
Principal oboist Barbara BOLTE sat in front of Ms. GRAVES for the past five years. They became very good Friends especially after the two of them spent an evening playing Baroque trio sonatas together. "We were playing for fun but we realized we spoke the same language."
Ms. BOLTE found her colleague "amazingly talented" and a very strong player. "When I had to play a solo and she was playing the bass part underneath I found it wonderfully supportive."
In March, Ms. GRAVES played "an absolutely pristine and beautiful Mozart bassoon concerto" in a Kingston Symphony Orchestra concert according to Mr. FAST. "It was astonishingly good, perfect really."
She finished the season and everything seemed fine. Of course, it wasn't. Mr. SOLWAY had begun noticing "weird little things" in his wife's behaviour last November, but thought it was depression.
It wasn't until the Kingston Symphony Orchestra's summer concert at Fort Henry in July that her musical colleagues spotted any problems.
"Susie didn't play as well as usual," said Ms. BOLTE. " She was making mistakes and she hardly ever played a wrong note or came in late." After the concert Ms. GRAVES complained that her eyes hurt and that she couldn't see very well, but she thought a new prescription from the optometrist would fix her up.
Mr. FAST agrees that "there were a few bobbles" in her playing. He knew that she wasn't feeling well and he thought she would soon be back in top form.
In fact, she was suffering the effects of a tumour that had began in the emotional centre of her brain, according to Mr. SOLWAY. She quickly became sicker and, at Mr. SOLWAY's urging, she was taken to Toronto for treatment. She underwent an operation to remove much of the tumour and then Mr. SOLWAY took her home to be with their teenage son Jesse, a double bass player, in Cobourg.
Susan Elizabeth GRAVES was born on May 7, 1954 in Norwalk, Connecticut. She died in Cobourg, Ontario, from a brain tumour on September 26, 2005. She was 51. She is survived by her husband Kenny SOLWAY, her son Jesse, her parents and a brother and his family. The Kingston Symphony is dedicating its per formance of Verdi's Requiem on Sunday, November 27, at the Kingston Gospel Temple, to her memory.
