Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director Autumn 2012 Welcome to the new season — Franz Welser-Möst’s eleventh year as music director. The months ahead promise exciting music and creative innovation, alongside our continuing dedication to artistic excellence and community service. The Cleveland Orchestra and Franz have just returned from this summer’s European Festivals tour. Once again, their performances were lauded and applauded from Scotland to Salzburg and from Lucerne to Linz. Many music critics, in the midst of praising the Orchestra’s overall artistry, focused on the extraordinary string section — including this quote from Südwest Presse: “This string section can clearly do anything perfectly, and Welser-Möst was able to demonstrate that fact with brio.” Additional excerpts of reviews from the European Festivals tour can be found on page 25 of this program book. The Cleveland Orchestra is devoted to nourishing hearts and minds — through musical performances and education programs. We are devoted to economic vitality — as Ohio’s most visible international ambassador, proudly carrying the name of our great city everywhere we go. And we are devoted to community service. The Orchestra is in the midst of a renaissance of spirit, as we commit ourselves to being ever more relevant to our hometown in a modern and changing world. Over the summer, we announced a series of new and innovative programs for the coming season. These include the Orchestra’s first fully staged performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker, presented with The Joffrey Ballet the week after Thanksgiving at PlayhouseSquare. We’re also continuing our return to the public schools, with a fourth year of performances at area high schools. And we’re introducing the expansion of “Under 18s Free” to select concert series here at Severance Hall. Next spring, we continue our collaborative partnership performing at the Cleveland Museum of Art, and we launch the Orchestra’s first Neighborhood Residency in Cleveland’s Gordon Square Arts District. Details of these and other programs can be found beginning on page 26 of this program book. We owe a debt of gratitude to the generous donors and sponsors who are funding these new activities alongside our core programming. And we invite you, our loyal friends, to consider your own investment in the continuation of these initiatives. Please be counted among the many who ensure the success of this great orchestra, through your participation and financial support.

Gary Hanson P.S. Included in this fall’s elections is an operating levy for the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Promoted as the “Right Plan, Right Now,” the success of this funding initiative for education will make a critical difference for Northeast Ohio’s future — and I urge everyone to learn more, to volunteer, and to support the campaign by visiting www.rightplanrightnow.com.

IN THE SPOTLIGHT

The Cleveland Orchestra Chorus on its way to sing Bach’s St. John Passion at the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico in June 1962. The all-volunteer Chorus is celebrating the 60th anniversary of its founding throughout the 2012-13 season.

U N D E R T H E L E A D E R S H I P of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra has become one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world. In concerts at its winter home at Severance Hall and at each summer’s Blossom Festival, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative programming, and community engagement. The partnership with Franz Welser-Möst, now in its eleventh season — and with a commitment to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018 — has moved the ensemble forward with a series of new and ongoing initiatives, including:

the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base, including an ongoing residency at the Vienna Musikverein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra); an ongoing residency in Florida, under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami, involving an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with an expansive set of educational presentations and collaborations

About the Orchestra

The Cleveland Orchestra

(based on successful educational programs pioneered over the past nine decades at home in Cleveland); concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including annual appearances at Carnegie Hall; regular concert tours to Europe (including biennial residencies at the Lucerne Festival) and Asia (including a residency at Tokyo’s Suntory Hall in 2010); ongoing recording activities, including new releases under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst, Mitsuko Uchida, and Pierre Boulez, as well as a series of DVD concert presentations of symphonies by Anton Bruckner; additional new residencies at Indiana University and at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival; an expanded offering of education and community programs in Northeast Ohio, designed to make music an integral and regular part of everyday life; the 2012-13 season includes a new neighborhood residency program that will feature a week of activities and performances in Cleveland’s Gordon Square Arts District; creative new artistic collaborations, including staged works and chamber music performances, with arts institutions in Northeast Ohio and in Miami; an array of new concert offerings (including Fridays@7 and Celebrity Series at Severance Hall as well as movie, themed, and family presentations at Blossom) to make a wider variety of concerts more available and affordable; a concentrated and ongoing effort to develop future generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio, through research, targeted discounts, social media offers and promotion, and student ticket programs; continuing and expanded educational partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities from across Northeast Ohio and in the Miami-Dade community; the return of ballet as a regular part of the Orchestra’s presentations, featuring performances by The Joffrey Ballet; the 2012-13 season includes the Orchestra’s first fully staged performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918 by a group of local citizens intent on creating an ensemble worthy of joining America’s ranks of major symphony orchestras. Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s home brought a special pride to the ensemble and its hometown, as well as providing an enviable and intimate acoustic environment in which to develop and refine the Orchestra’s artistry. Year-round performances became a reality in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facilities in the United States.

Franz Welser-Möst Music Director Kelvin Smith Family Endowed Chair The Cleveland Orchestra

P H OTO BY D O N S N Y D E R

T H E 2 0 1 2 - 1 3 S E A S O N marks Franz Welser-Möst’s eleventh year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with a long-term commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his direction, the Orchestra is acclaimed for its continuing artistic excellence, is enlarging and enhancing its community programming at home, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, continues its historic championship of new composers through commissions and premieres, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Mr. Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010. With a committed focus on music education in Northeast Ohio, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with performances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The initiative continues and expands upon Mr. Welser-Möst’s active participation in community concerts and educational programs, including the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and partnerships with music conservatories and universities across Northeast Ohio. Under Mr. Welser-Möst’s leadership, The Cleveland Orchestra has established an ongoing biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall and another at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival. Together, they have appeared in residence at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Japan, and at the Salzburg Festival, where a 2008 residency included five sold-out performances of a staged production of Dvořák’s opera Rusalka. In the United States, Mr. Welser-Möst has established an annual multi-week Cleveland Orchestra residency in Florida under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami and, in 2011, launched a new biennial residency at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival. To the start of this season, The Cleveland Orchestra has performed fourteen world and fifteen United States premieres under Franz Welser-Möst’s direction. Through the Roche Commissions project, he and the Orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, and Matthias Pintscher in partnership with the Lucerne Festival and Carnegie Hall. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-André Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, and Sean Shepherd. Franz Welser-Möst has led a series of opera performances during his tenure

in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the MozartDa Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012. Franz Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in 2010. His long partnership with the company has included acclaimed performances of Tristan and Isolde, a new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director SvenEric Bechtolf, and critically praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac and Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead. During the 2012-13 season, his Vienna performances include Wagner’s Parsifal, Strauss’s Arabella and Ariadne auf Naxos, Puccini’s La Bohème, and Berg’s Wozzeck. Mr. Welser-Möst also maintains an ongoing relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances at the Lucerne Festival and Salzburg Festival, in Tokyo, and in concert at La Scala Milan, as well as leading the Philharmonic’s 2011 New Year’s Day concert, viewed by telecast in seventy countries worldwide; he will conduct the New Year’s Day concert again in 2013 and will also lead the Philharmonic in a series of concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March 2013. Across a decade-long tenure with the Zurich Opera, culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08), Mr. Welser-Möst led the company in more than 40 new productions and numerous revivals. Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including the Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, Japanese Record Academy Award, and two Grammy nominations. With The Cleveland Orchestra, he has created DVD recordings of live performances of Bruckner symphonies, presented in three accoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Severance Hall). With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as an all-Wagner album featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman. DVD releases on the EMI label have included Mr. Welser-Möst leading Zurich Opera productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Der Rosenkavalier, Fierrabras, and Peter Grimes. For his talents and dedication, Mr. Welser-Möst has received honors that include recognition from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights, honorary membership in the Vienna Singverein, appointment as an Academician of the European Academy of Yuste, a Gold Medal from the Upper Austrian government for his work as a cultural ambassador, a Decoration of Honor from the Republic of Austria for his artistic achievements, and the Kilenyi Medal from the Bruckner Society of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

2012 European Festivals Tour draws praise for Welser-Möst and Cleveland Orchestra The following are excerpted from press reviews of the Orchestra’s performances during its European Festivals Tour August 18 to September 3: “If the strings are the heart and soul of the symphony orchestra, then The Cleveland Orchestra is essentially in terrific shape. . . . It was the full-bodied attack of the strings in the gutsy opening bars, and their brilliantly delicate and muted virtuosity in the second movement, that were the icing on the cake.” —The Scotsman, August 22, 2012 “The Cleveland Orchestra is often described as the aristocrat among American orchestras. If ‘aristocratic’ means spellbinding finesse in sound and style, then their first Edinburgh Festival concert certainly came up trumps. . . . The music we heard gave a lot of pleasure, largely because it was shrewdly chosen to show off the Clevelanders’ fabulous sheen and warmth. —Telegraph, August 22, 2012 “In this one heard a courageous Bruckner, unafraid of dissonances, magnificently brought alive by Franz Welser-Möst and his Cleveland Orchestra.” —Deutschland Radio, August 25, 2012

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

“Representing the ruins of a demolished tower of concrete and lead, Matthias Pintscher orchestrates a catastrophic destruction in his Chute d’Étoiles (‘Falling Stars’). Metallic explosions of sound run into the calm of a post-apocalyptic ‘sea of lead,’ and it is left to two solo trumpets to drive this cycle of destruction and new creation forward. . . . Michael Sachs and Jack Sutte performed with great verve and in a mirage-like whisper, using idioms not far removed from free jazz; they gradually soar to a state of golden splendor.” —Die Südotschweiz, August 27, 2012 “The host of strings (eight double basses, an unusual complement of twelve violas seated on the conductor’s right, etc.) was amazing — a sound mass with a lot of fighting power. . . . This string section can clearly do anything perfectly, and WelserMöst was able to demonstrate that fact with brio.” —Südwest Presse, August 29, 2012 “[In Smetana’s Má Vlast] Welser-Möst had the harpist touch the strings with great subtlety, and the wiry immediacy of the strings (with William Preucil as concertmaster) was striking.” —Stuttgart Nachrichten, August 29, 2012

“[In Smetana’s The Moldau] the coloring was precise, almost pointillistic, the tempo flowing and animated, with furious explosive power and dramatic brio in the passage of the cataracts, and with silky sparkle in the violins for the scene of the mermaids in the silvery moonlight. The conductor thoroughly cleansed this earworm from all the patina of spa concerts. The familiar sounded excitingly new — this was definitely worth listening to carefully.” —Esslinger Zeitung, August 29, 2012

Cleveland Orchestra continues innovations in programming and community engagement New programs and expansion include neighborhood residency, ballet, free tickets, and school partnerships and performances

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHE

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

In the 2012-13 season, The Cleveland Orchestra continues its innovations in programming and community engagement, seeking to build on the success of recent initiatives. The coming season’s innovations include new program and audience development activities at Severance Hall, alongside expanded activities outside the concert hall. The Orchestra will venture even farther outside its University Circle home with new programs downtown and on Cleveland’s West Side. At PlayhouseSquare, the Orchestra will collaborate with The Joffrey Ballet, while the organization’s ground-breaking residency program, developed and refined by the Orchestra in cities including Vienna and Miami, will come home to Northeast Ohio with the launch of a new program of Neighborhood Residencies. The first annual Cleveland Orchestra Neighborhood Residency will take place in Gordon Square the week of May 13-19, 2013. Also this season, the initiative that brought the full Orchestra back into the schools in 2009 will continue and become a permanent part of the annual schedule thanks to a newly-created endowment fund, and a new partnership with Breakthrough Charter Schools begins in October 2012. Meanwhile, “Under 18s Free,” a program first established for the 2011 Blossom Festival, will come inside Severance Hall for selected concerts, and as the unique Fridays@7 Series enters its fourth season, a bold repertoire move sees world music migrating from the @fter-party entertainment to the main-stage concert with the Orchestra. The KeyBank Fridays@7 series opening on October 5 features the music of Stewart Copeland, founder and drummer of The Police, and a collaboration with the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame & Museum. In announcing the new initiatives in August, Gary Hanson, executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra, said, “We want to build on the success of our many recent community engagement initiatives, and in the coming season we are further diversifying our schedule and

26

programs. Our goal is to be even more relevant to our community.” CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA NEIGHBORHOOD RESIDENCY The Cleveland Orchestra Neighborhood Residency is a new program to immerse the Orchestra in local communities with an intense schedule of performances and activities. The first of these annual residencies in Northeast Ohio takes place the week of May 13-19, 2013, in Gordon Square. The centerpieces of the Residency will be free Cleveland Orchestra concerts at St. Colman Church for neighborhood residents and students, and musicians will perform as soloists and in ensembles in non-traditional locations and in local schools. The Cleveland Orchestra Neighborhood Residency at Gordon Square is funded in part by the Machaskee Fund for Community Programming, an endowed fund created by Alex and Carol Machaskee. Sean Watterson, co-owner of the Happy Dog bar, restaurant, and music venue in Gordon Square, said, “We’re incredibly enthusiastic about the Orchestra coming to Gordon Square. We’re thrilled that people in our community will be able to experience their world-class performances at a series of events for all ages throughout the neighborhood. We’re proud to welcome the world to Gordon Square to join us for this unique experience.” HIGH SCHOOL PERFORMANCES PERMANENTLY ENDOWED The Cleveland Orchestra returned to performing in Cleveland high schools in 2009, after an absence of more than three decades. On Thursday, October 11, 2012, the Orchestra’s performance at Shaker Heights High School will be the first to be supported by a newly established fund that permanently endows annual Cleveland Orchestra performances in area high schools. The Alfred Lerner In-School Performance Fund, a gift of $1 million from Mrs. Norma Lerner and The Lerner Foundation, will support concerts in high schools in perpetuity. Performances are being

The third of Mitsuko Uchida’s albums of Mozart concertos with The Cleveland Orchestra has been released — and is now available for purchase at the Cleveland Orchestra Store at Severance Hall. The album features Piano Concertos Nos. 9 and 21, recorded in live performances at Severance Hall. One of the previous discs from this collaboration received a Grammy Award in 2011. Reviews of this new album include these comments from Audio Audition: “Conducting Mozart concertos from the piano has a long and honored tradition, originating with the composer himself. . . . Uchida performs on a new Hamburg Steinway whose action remains uniformly light and resonant, especially as Uchida does not mince her dynamics. . . . We need only audition this fine collaboration to enjoy the scintillating energy of the outer movements [of Concerto No. 9] and the internal rigors of the Andantino movement. The last movement virtually bubbles with infectious wit and digital confidence. . . . The give-and-take response between Uchida and The Cleveland strings and winds attractively beguiles us. Then, her seamless runs and arpeggios move inexorably to a bravura cadenza almost early Beethoven in its briefly pearly wit that rushes to a coda spread over three octaves. Superb!”

LEARNING MORE ABOUT THE MUSIC

SEASON

Concert Previews The Cleveland Orchestra offers a variety of options for learning more about the music before each concert begins. For each concert, the program book includes program notes commenting on and providing background about the composer and his or her work being performed that week, along with biographies of the guest artists and other information. You can read these before the concert, at intermission, or afterward. (Program notes are also posted ahead of time online at clevelandorchestra.com, usually by the Monday directly preceding the concert.) The Orchestra’s Music Study Groups also provide a way of exploring the music in more depth. These classes, professionally led by Dr. Rose Breckenridge, meet weekly in locations around Cleveland to explore the music being played each week and the stories behind the composers’ lives. Free Concert Previews are presented one hour before most subscription concerts throughout the season at Severance Hall.

Cleveland Orchestra Concert Previews are presented before every regular subscription concert, and are free to all ticketholders to that day’s performance. Previews are designed to enrich the concert-going experience for audience members of all levels of musical knowledge through a variety of interviews and through talks by local and national experts.

believe in creating a better world. This conviction has ignited decades of inspirational and transformative philanthropy. Great music of many kinds has a permanent place in Milton and Tamar’s vision. Their devotion to music has ranged from helping develop the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum to supporting the success and growth of The Cleveland Orchestra. The couple have been Cleveland Orchestra subscribers across four decades and are devoted to the Orchestra’s Blossom Festival. They have been generous contributors to the Orchestra’s Annual Fund and to special projects such as the renovation of Severance Hall. In 2010, their visionary leadership helped launch the Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences with a $20 million lead endowment gift. The Center was established to create and fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts. These programs include the Orchestra’s “Under 18s Free” program, which has to date granted free Blossom admission to over 26,000 young people. Milton began his career as a child actor in radio dramas. He majored in journalism at the University of Illinois and served our country as a code breaker in the U.S. Navy before founding Malrite Communications Group in 1956. During Milton’s tenure as chairman and CEO, Malrite became one of the country’s top broadcasting companies, boasting radio and television stations from coast to coast. Milton’s successes include receiving the Dively Award for Entrepreneurship, and being inducted into the Cleveland Business Hall of Fame. Tamar earned her education degree from Chicago’s Roosevelt University, and then taught in Maryland, Michigan, and Ohio. She met her husband during a radio audition, and later loaned him $6,000 to start Malrite. She serves on the board of directors of the Brain & Behavior Research Foundation and works to create social and recreational opportunities for people suffering from mental illness, for which she received the “Trailblazer of the Year” award from the Planned Life Assistance Network. Together with their children, Milton and Tamar created the Maltz Family Foundation to channel their success into a greater Northeast Ohio. The Foundation has supported programs in everything from the arts to medicine, including the Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Play House, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and Case Western Reserve University. The Foundation also launched The Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage, which sponsors an annual “Stop the Hate” essay contest, awarding $100,000 in scholarships and prizes to the winners. Milton and Tamar believe that music is an essential part of life. Their exceptional philanthropy helps ensure that great music performed by The Cleveland Orchestra can continue to inspire everyone, forever. For their enduring commitment to the Orchestra, for their exemplary generosity in strengthening the Northeast Ohio community, and for their unwavering devotion to music, the Musical Arts Association is pleased to present Milton and Tamar Maltz with its highest award for distinguished service.

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Mozart, Love & Rock’n’Roll PA I R S O F Y O U N G L O V E R S

inhabit several of the musical works throughout this weekend’s concerts. The most famous of these, Romeo and Juliet, are represented in Berlioz’s symphony of that name. The Love Scene — performed on Thursday and Saturday nights — is the central movement of seven, and the emotional core of the work. It was the scene that left the strongest impression on Berlioz when he first saw Shakespeare’s play. Mendelssohn’s music for A Midsummer Night’s Dream alludes to no less than three pairs of lovers: the four lovers whose misunderstandings and entanglements form the center of the story, and the king and queen whose nuptials are celebrated by the famous Wedding March. The four entr’actes presented feature music crafted to portray — among other emotions — peaceful quiet, uncertainty, and joy. Daphnis and Chloé are less familiar lovers, but their devotion in a classical pastoral setting was perfect for the world Ravel wanted to render in his famous ballet from 1912. The wordless voices — sung by the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus — add a special depth to Ravel’s detailed and mesmerizing sound world. Also featured on Thursday and Saturday evenings, the Orchestra’s principal bassoon, John Clouser, steps to center stage to play Mozart’s lyrical Bassoon Concerto, written when the composer was just eighteen years old. On Friday night, conductor James Feddeck leads the first KeyBank Fridays@7 concert of the season, including the Cleveland premiere of an unusual concerto for world percussion, created by composer Stewart Copeland especially for the five-man ensemble D’Drum. This requires some change from our usual Fridays@7 format, introducing an intermission so that the fascinatingly large battery of percussion instruments can be set up onstage. The evening surrounding the concert begins with world music of a different sort and ends with the usual @fterparty, this week featuring Jamey Haddad, who not only curates the pre- and post-concert affairs, but is an agile and gifted performer.

He made his Cleveland Orchestra debut in August 2009. He assists Franz Welser-Möst in the preparation of Cleveland Orchestra performances, opera productions, recording projects, and tours. In March 2011, he replaced Welser-Möst at the last minute in the Zurich Opera production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni performed at Severance Hall. He has led a number of new community initiatives, including Cleveland Orchestra collaborative performances with the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland Play House. This past summer, he led the Youth Orchestra on its first international tour, with performances in the Czech Republic and Austria. In the United States, Mr. Feddeck has guest conducted the orchestras of Atlanta, Charleston, Charlotte (with soloist Yo-Yo Ma), Grand Rapids, Memphis, Omaha, St. Louis, San Diego, and Toledo as well as performances with the Kennedy Center Opera Orchestra (Ballet Across America Festival) and Aspen Music Festival. In April 2010, he made his European debut with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich. He makes his Canadian debut in 2013 with the Orchestre Symphonique de Québec. Before his appointment in Cleveland, Mr. Feddeck was assistant conductor of the Memphis Symphony Orchestra for two seasons. He was a conducting fellow for three summers at the Aspen Music Festival, as a protégé of David Zinman, where he received the Robert J. Harth Conductor Prize and the Aspen Conducting Prize and later served as assistant conductor. He was the unanimous winner of the Sixth Vakhtang Jordania International Conducting Competition as the youngest participant (at age twenty-two). The Georg Solti Foundation U.S. awarded him a Career Assistance Grant, a new prize for young conductors in the United States. An accomplished organist, James Feddeck has performed recitals throughout North America and Europe and has been featured on the North American radio program Pipedreams. As an oboist, he has a special interest in new music and has commissioned works including Daniel Pinkham’s Oboe Quartet. With his interest in early music, he regularly leads orchestras from the keyboard. Mr. Feddeck’s musical training is unusually diverse. He was admitted to the Oberlin Conservatory of Music in four areas: piano, oboe, organ, and conducting. At Oberlin, he led his first operatic production, of Mozart’s Così fan tutte. In September 2010, Oberlin College awarded him its first Outstanding Young Alumni Award for professional achievement and contributions to society, the college’s highest distinction to alumni of his generation.

Four Orchestral Entr’actes from Incidental Music to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Opus 61 composed 1842 MENDELSSOHN

Felix

MENDELSSOHN born February 3, 1809 Hamburg died November 4, 1847 Leipzig

Severance Hall 2012-13

was only seventeen when he and his sister Fanny saw a production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in Berlin. He immediately wrote a piece for piano duet for them to play together, depicting the characters and extraordinary events in the play. He had no thought of it being an overture to anything such as an opera or a performance of the play — but he orchestrated it soon thereafter and called it an Overture, thus making an entirely novel contribution to the 19th century’s wealth of program music. Fifteen years later, he was invited by the King of Prussia to compose incidental music for the play itself, appending new music to the Overture for a production in the King’s palace at Potsdam, near Berlin. Some of the music was played during the action of the play, but the main pieces, apart from the Overture, were the four entr’actes, performed between each of the five acts, that we hear in sequence at this weekend’s concerts. The Scherzo anticipates the fairies’ scene in the forest at the start of Act II. Having already proved himself to be a master of gossamer fairy music in the Octet, the Violin Concerto, and in many other pieces, Mendelssohn produced yet another sample of orchestral wizardry for this scene, rarely rising above piano and showing off the fine skills of both strings and winds, especially the flute, whose long fairy dance at the end trips lightly off the scene and into silence. The Intermezzo is in two parts. At the end of Act II, Hermia has woken in the forest to find her lover Lysander gone. She runs off in desperation: “Either death or you I’ll find immediately.” The music perfectly conveys her distress as she gets lost in the woods, the themes darting from one instrument to another in the minor mode with no settled cadence. Her agitation is shown in the shuddering middle strings. As she is lost to sight, we see Bottom and Quince arriving (portrayed by two bassoons) for a gathering of the mechanicals. In a short while they are all assembled, ready for the rehearsal of their play. At the end of Act III, the four lovers have all been maneuvered into lying down to sleep in the same clearing in the woods. Puck arrives to squeeze the juice in Lysander’s eyes that will make him return to his love, Hermia. The music is a About the Music

sublime Nocturne while the four of them sleep. A solo horn, supported by two bassoons, leads off with a shapely theme that fills a paragraph. The violins are then a little agitated in character, and the music spreads into what might have been the slow movement of a symphony, the horns being prominent as the true symbols of the Romantic night, especially in Germany. The end fades into silence. The Wedding March celebrates the coming nuptials of Theseus and Hippolyta. It also embraces the happy resolution of all the misunderstandings and quarrels that have beset the two pairs of lovers, Lysander and Hermia, and Demetrius and Helena. For as long as anyone can remember, this music has blessed the weddings of countless couples the world over, many of whom, heading for the daylight and the photographer, will have left the church long before the music reaches its broad and melodious subsidiary themes. Here’s a chance finally to hear the music in all its glorious fullness. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012

About the Music

At a Glance Mendelssohn wrote his incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 1842 at the request of Friedrich Wilhelm IV, King of Prussia. Combined with the composer’s overture written in 1826, the music for the play was first performed on October 14, 1843, in the Royal Theater of the New Palace in Potsdam. The four orchestral entr’actes presented at this concert run about 20 minutes in performance. Mendelssohn’s score calls for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, ophicleide (a nowobsolete brass instrument replaced in orchestras by the tuba), timpani, percussion (cymbals), and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra has played selections from Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream music on many occasions, with the most recent performance being part of the 2011 Blossom Festival, when Bramwell Tovey led a selection of numbers from the complete score.

Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major, K191 composed 1774 THE AUTOGRAPH SCORE

by

Wolfgang Amadè

MOZART born January 27, 1756 Salzburg died December 5, 1791 Vienna

of this concerto, though long lost, was said to be dated “Salzburg, 4 June 1774.” That may well be correct, but there is nothing else to tell us who it was written for, or for what occasion. Mozart is said to have written four concertos for a keen amateur bassoonist, Baron Thaddeus von Dürnitz, but, because there is no trace of any others, this may not be one of them. There is a sonata, for cello and bassoon (K292), which was probably written for the baron to play with a cellist friend. It was an uneventful period in Mozart’s life. Aged eighteen, he spent almost the full year in Salzburg at his unrewarding duties in the Archbishop’s service, writing a considerable quantity of music of all kinds — masses, symphonies, sonatas, and two unusual concertos: a “concertone” for two violins (K190) and this bassoon concerto. The concerto is straightforward in style and content, and shows Mozart’s craftsmanship, tirelessly making good points out of quite ordinary material. The bassoon’s capacity for wide leaps, rapid tonguing, and intricate passage-work in the upper register is well displayed. In the slow movement, Mozart even makes the bassoon chant melodiously in dialogue with the ensemble’s two oboes. The finale is a rondo in a firm triple time that seems too stately for a real minuet, and, unlike in the first two movements, there is no space for a solo cadenza. Bassoonists agree that Mozart is one of the finest composers for their instrument, although they might not point immediately to this concerto to demonstrate that. It may make us more aware of the noble role that this composer allots to the bassoon in his orchestral music and his operas. For, more often, the bassoon, not the cello, carries the true tenor voice in Mozart’s orchestra. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012

At a Glance It is thought that Mozart wrote this concerto in late spring 1774. Details of its premiere are unknown. This concerto runs about 20 minutes in performance. Mozart scored it for 2 oboes, 2 horns, strings, and solo bassoon. John Clouser is performing cadenzas written by Bernard Garfield.

Love Scene from Romeo and Juliet composed 1839 BERLIOZ’S FIRST SYMPHONY

by

Hector

BERLIOZ born December 11, 1803 La Côte-Saint-André, Isère, France died March 8, 1869 Paris

Severance Hall 2012-13

was the Symphonie fantastique (1830), an autobiographical drama taking Beethoven’s concept of the symphony far into the realm of passion and personal confession. His second symphony, Harold in Italy (1834), was also personal, part reminiscence of Berlioz’s own travels in Italy, part exploration of the Byronic spleen from which the whole Romantic generation loved to suffer. For his third symphony, Roméo et Juliette (1839), Berlioz turned to his greatest literary passion, Shakespeare, drawing once again on his own most fervent experiences. His discovery of Shakespeare in 1827 had been overwhelming, not only for the dramatic force of the poetry and drama (instinctively grasped even though Berlioz knew no English), but also because the leading actress of the company, Harriet Smithson, immediately won his heart. She became for him the personification of Ophelia in Hamlet or of Juliet, and it is very probable that his immediate response was to set certain scenes from the play, perhaps as instrumental music without voices. There seems to be a lost work, perhaps titled “Four Scenes from Romeo and Juliet,” which was soon set aside and absorbed into various works written during the period 1828-1830. In 1830, Berlioz decided to compose a drama that featured not the role of Juliet, which Harriet Smithson had played in 1827, but Harriet herself. The first movement of the Symphonie fantastique depicts the artist’s burning passion, a passion undirected and without any object until the beloved walks into his life. This is exactly the scenario of the first scenes of Romeo and Juliet in the version that Berlioz saw. The Symphonie fantastique’s second movement depicts a ball, just as in Act I of the play. At all events, the idea of a musical setting of the play underwent a long fermentation in his creative storehouse; Berlioz was waiting for an opportunity to compose such a work — and for a binding idea that would give it external form. The opportunity came with Paganini’s famous gift to the composer of 20,000 francs at the end of 1838, and the formal shape came, indirectly, from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Like the Ninth, Berlioz’s new symphony was also to be a full-length choral symphony, but in seven movements, using a double chorus to represent the two warring families and solo voices as secondAbout the Music

51

At a Glance Berlioz planned a musical work based on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet beginning as early as 1829; the eveninglong dramatic symphony was written a decade later, in 1839, using words by Émile Deschamps, a translator of Shakespeare. The first performance took place on November 24, 1839, in Paris, under the composer’s direction. Berlioz revised the work over the next seven years, and the final version was published, with a dedication to Paganini, in 1847. The Love Scene from Berlioz’s Romeo and Juliet runs not quite 20 minutes in performance. Berlioz scored this movement for 2 flutes, 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets, 4 bassoons, 4 horns, and strings. In the complete symphony, this movement includes a brief passage for off-stage male chorus, which is usually omitted when this Love Scene is extracted by itself. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed music from Romeo and Juliet during the 1935-36 concert season. The most recent performance of excerpts was at the 2010 Blossom Festival, when Stéphane Denève conducted the Love Scene. The complete symphony was presented in May 2000, with the Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra Chorus, and soloists under the direction of Pierre Boulez.

52

ary characters (Mercutio and Friar Laurence, with the contralto soloist as commentator). The two lovers themselves were to be represented purely by the orchestra. The symphony does not enact the drama in detail and many episodes are omitted, but the resources of voices and orchestra allowed Berlioz to combine the dramatic immediacy of sung words with the infinite expressive power of instrumental music. The Scène d’amour, or Love Scene, is one of the movements that call for no voices. Berlioz felt it was necessary to explain why he did not set the famous balcony scene as a love duet, perhaps for soprano and tenor soloists. His reasons were threefold. First, this is a symphony and not an opera; second, love duets already exist in profusion, while programmatic symphonic movements were new; and third, words are too precise to express the very sublimity of this love — only music can attempt to paint its true intensity. This last reason embodies the essence of Berlioz’s own aesthetics, for he always felt and heard things more vividly in his imagination than with his ears and eyes. Rather than have his lovers sing and risk banality, he entrusts their feelings and poetry to the orchestra, the instrument of which he was the complete master. In the autograph manuscript, Berlioz noted the date of completion, September 8, 1839. By the composer’s side, perhaps contributing her own understanding of Shakespeare, was Harriet Smithson, who had become his wife six years before. Berlioz had only ever seen the play that first and only time in 1827, but he had forgotten nothing of that experience and had read and re-read the play a thousand times. The Scène d’amour is also the central movement in a sequence of three, broadly equivalent to first movement, slow movement, and scherzo of a traditional symphony. Various attempts have been made to show how the music parallels the text of Shakespeare’s balcony scene, although it is difficult to be more precise than to hear the cellos (and other tenor instruments) as the ardent Romeo, while the upper woodwinds, especially the clarinet, represent Juliet. At the end of the movement, we hear the falling accents of “Adieu!”/“Farewell” repeated as the lovers part. The symphony was given its first three performances at the Paris Conservatoire at the end of 1839, with Berlioz conducting. It was a pinnacle of French Romanticism and a brilliant example of Berlioz’s orchestral mastery, as many then present were aware. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012

Daphnis and Chloé, Suite No. 2 composed 1909-12 UNLIKE MANY

by

Maurice

RAVEL born March 7, 1875

Ciboure, Basses-Pyrénées died December 28, 1937 Paris

54

famous love stories — such as Tristan and Isolde, Shanbo and Yingtai, or Romeo and Juliet — the tale of Daphnis and Chloé has a happy ending. It is a celebration of sensual love and beauty set in an imaginary world of ancient Greek shepherds. Many a secret dream, many an amorous fantasy is embodied in this luxuriant ballet score. The story came from a pastoral romance by the Greek author Longus (3rd century, A.D.). The romance tells about the awakening of love between two young people, both abandoned as children and now tending their herds together. After various adventures — amorous rivalries, abductions by pirates, and other intrigues — it turns out that both are children of aristocratic families and they have a grand wedding, living happily ever after. Ravel’s ballet on this subject was written on a commission from Sergei Diaghilev, the brilliant Russian impresario and founder of the Ballets Russes. Ravel received the commission in 1909, but the score was not completed until 1912. By the time the long-awaited score was finished, much had happened in the realms of Parisian ballet and music. Indeed, the fast-moving Diaghilev had initiated so many new projects that Ravel’s effort, when finally presented, was somewhat overshadowed by other productions, including a very controversial adaptation of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, which opened just two weeks before Daphnis and Chloé. In addition, Stravinsky’s Firebird and Pétrouchka has received their premieres in 1910 and 1911, respectively. And Debussy’s Jeux and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring were already in the making. Even the Greek topic had been “stolen” from Ravel with the ballet Narcisse, another Fokine production with Nijinsky in the title role, premiered in 1911 with music by Nikolai Tcherepnin. In the end, Daphnis and Chloé was presented on June 8, 1912, two days before the end of the ballet season, and played only twice before the company went on summer break. “My intention,” Ravel said, “was to compose a vast musical fresco in which I was less concerned with archaism than with faithfully reproducing the Greece of my dreams, which is very similar to that imagined and painted by the French artists at the end of the 18th century.” Diaghilev and his choreographer, along with the set and costume designers, had hoped About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

for something more authentically historical. But, ultimately, Ravel’s music sweeps away all questions of Greek facts and faces to evoke a wonderfully Romantic world of pastoral landscapes and the triumph of love. The music of Daphnis and Chloé was more quickly successful in the concert hall, mainly in the form of the two suites that Ravel extracted from the score soon after the ballet music was completed. The second suite, presented at this weekend’s concerts, features three sections: Lever du jour (“Daybreak”), Pantomime, and Danse générale (“General Dance”), which form the complete final part of the ballet in order. The suite begins with a wonderful and famous representation of sunrise. Against a texture of lush figurations in flutes, clarinets, harps, and celesta, the basses and cellos begin a majestic tune, gradually taken over by violas and violins. The first shepherd crossing the stage is portrayed by the piccolo, the second by the equally high-pitched E-flat clarinet (both musicians were on the stage in the original ballet version). The embrace of Daphnis and Chloé is marked by an orchestral climax where the violins reach their highest register. The music calms down as the old shepherd Lammon tells his story about Pan and Syrinx (oboe solo), which Daphnis and Chloé proceed to enact in a pantomime. When the god creates his flute — the panpipe — from reed-stalks, we hear one of the most enchanting flute solos in the entire orchestral literature. (Actually, the melody is divided between the flutes, to give the musicians a chance to breathe!) Daphnis and Chloé embrace one more time, and then the ecstatic Danse générale gets underway. Rather unusually for a ballet, large stretches of this dance were written in the asymmetrical meter of 5/4, to which dancers and musicians in 1912 were unaccustomed. (It is said that they had to scan the words “Ser-gei Dia-ghi-lev, Ser-gei Dia-ghi-lev” until they got the rhythm right.) This asymmetry and the use of ostinatos (repeated rhythmic figure or short melodic motif) throughout this final section remind us that Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring is less than a year away. Both Daphnis and Chloé and The Rite of Spring end with similar effects — short rhythmic units repeated, varied, and stirred up to a paroxysm; and the fact that Stravinsky was to carry this effect even further takes nothing away from the brilliance and excitement of Ravel’s finale. —Peter Laki © 2012

About the Music

At a Glance Ravel composed the ballet Daphnis and Chloé (in one act, divided into three scenes) between 1909 and 1912. It was premiered by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes on June 8, 1912, at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris. Vaslav Nijinsky and Tamara Karsavina danced the title roles; Pierre Monteux conducted. Ravel drew two suites of orchestral excerpts from the ballet, of which the second has especially gained wide acceptance in the concert hall. Suite No. 2 runs about 15 minutes in performance. Ravel’s score calls for piccolo, 2 flutes, alto flute, 2 oboes, english horn, 3 clarinets, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, 2 harps, celesta, timpani, percussion (bass drum, 2 side drums, cymbals, triangle, tambourine, castanets, glockenspiel), and strings, plus an optional mixed chorus (singing without words). The Second Suite from Daphnis and Chloé has been a staple of The Cleveland Orchestra’s repertoire since Nikolai Sokoloff conducted it in April 1925. The most recent performances were in February and March 2008, when Ilan Volkov led concerts featuring both suites and Jayce Ogren led a performance of Suite No. 2 sideby-side with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra.

Musical Evolution from ROCK’n’ROLL to CLASSICAL by Lauren Onkey and Jason Hanley

IN 1956, CHUCK BERRY HIT THE CHARTS

The Cleveland premiere of Stewart Copeland’s Gamelan D’Drum mixes artists and audiences from across the musical spectrum — and around the world.

with “Roll Over Beethoven,” a song that defined the sound and spirit of rock and roll. The genesis of the song came from Berry’s efforts to steal some time on the family piano from his sister, who was playing classical music. But in its final form it created a lasting image of rock and roll as a revolutionary force: “My temperature’s risin’ / The jukebox’s blowin’ a fuse / My heart’s beatin’ rhythm / And my soul keeps a-singin’ the blues / Roll over Beethoven and tell Tchaikovsky the news.” Rock and roll music asked its listeners to pay more attention to rhythm and timbre than to the movement of the harmonic progression. The songs of the first wave of rock and roll blasted forth with an unrestrained enthusiasm, ready to take on the bastions of tradition. The ideal of tradition is often at the center of the division between classical and popular music. Tradition underlies our notions of complexity, authenticity, meaning, and even performance etiquette. We find much of this debate contained in the words of cultural critic Theodor W. Adorno in his 1941 article “On Popular Music.” Adorno claims that popular music, by its very nature, can never attain the heights and complexities of classical music — because popular song is written with a standardized goal in mind: the leisure time of the listener. Adorno was referencing the music of Rock’n’Roll

dancehalls and Broadway, hot jazz and radio tunes. By the time rock and roll entered the scene in the early 1950s, the world was primed for a change — rock and roll would take up the challenge. Like most art forms, rock and roll soon developed its own sense of tradition, along with young bands bent on breaking it. Inspired by the musical experiments of the Beatles, British bands like Procol Harum, King Crimson, the Moody Blues, and Yes created sounds that valued European classical music more than the American rhythm-and-blues roots of rock-and-roll. These musicians blended the song sensibilities of popular music with some of the syntax and structures of art music. They wrote long form suites, performed with orchestras, and valued technical skill and virtuosity. The entire musical style was later named art rock, or progressive rock, to signify the manner in which the two musical traditions found a space to interact. Classical music was not oblivious to the trend of crossing influences, and was never really as exclusive as rock and roll fans sometimes make it out to be. In fact the interaction between popular and classical music has been an important part of the concert music for much of history. In the 20th century alone, jazz music influenced many composers of the concert hall, including Stravinsky, Satie, and Weill; composer Luciano Berio expressed admiration for the Beatles; popular music played a formative role in the evolution of minimalist music; and composers like Phillip Glass and Michael Torke took musical melodies and harmonies directly from David Bowie and Madonna. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee Frank Zappa might be the most intriguing artist who mixed rock with classical music. He claimed the music of Howlin’ Wolf and Edgard Varèse as two of his most important influences. During his lifetime, Zappa composed music for film, rock band, orchestra, synthesizer, jazz quartet, and almost any other combination he could imagine. At one point, Zappa’s orchestral music was conducted and recorded by none other than Pierre Boulez (who has often conducted The Cleveland Orchestra here at Severance Hall). Zappa insisted that he would never be limited by tradition, and would always fight for music made for the pure sake of music. Sounds will mingle, music will evolve, and traditions will cross and dissolve. We should preserve the music we love, but we should also let it roam and experiment — it’s okay to go and knock on the door of the person across the street and say, “hey, what do you have on that iPod, and can I take a listen?” Lauren Onkey serves as vice president of education and public programs, and Jason Hanley as director of education, at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

About the Instruments Stewart Copeland’s Gamelan D’Drum utilizes a large battery of percussion instruments, many of which originate in the Javanese and Balinese gamelan ensemble. Many are metallophones (pitched metal instruments). Amadinda — from Uganda, a large wooden xylophone played by 2 or 3 musicians; originally the royal music played for the king in Uganda. Bonang — from Java, small bronze pot gongs on horizontal frame. Ceng-ceng — from Bali, hand cymbals used in ceremonial and parade music. Cimbalom — from Hungary, a large classical dulcimer, a trapezoid string instrument on legs, played with mallets. Doumbek — from the Middle East, a single-headed, goblet-shaped drum. Gambang — from Java, wooden xylophone with trough resonator. Gender — from Bali and Java, a set of bronze tuned metal bars (a kind of metal xylophone), played with a mallet, usually played in pairs tuned slightly out of tune with each other to create a “wow” effect; a special pair of western-tuned diatonic gender were custom made to be played in Gamelan D’Drum. Gendhing — from Java, a large double-sided barrel drum. Gongs — from Bali and Java, large vertically hung tuned gongs with raised boss in center. Kendang — from Bali, a double-headed drum played with both hands and/or a beater (pagul). Kendang (Sudan/Java) — a set of 3 double-headed drums (1 large and 2 small) played while sitting; the pitch of the large drum is controlled with the heel of the left foot. Kendang Tambor — from Java, a very large 2-headed drum played by 2 people. Lesung — from Bali, large hollowed log (for pounding rice using heavy poles) with 3 to 5 people pounding interlocking rhythms known as kotekan. Marimba — from the United States, tuned wooden bars suspended over resonators. Reyong —from Bali, small bronze pot gongs, either set on horizontal frames or hand held; a special set of 2-octave western-tuned chromatic reyong were custom made for the performance of Gamelan D’Drum. Richik — from Bali, small, thick cymbals mounted on a wooden turtle base. Riq — from the Middle East, frame drum with large jingles. Trans-Cultural Kit — an American-styled drumset utilizing the Ewe barrel drums, Gon Gon, and caxixi of West Africa, Turkish cymbals, and Arabic frame drum. Vibraphone — from the United States, metal bars suspended over metal tube resonators with a pedal used to attain dampening, sustained, and tremelo effects.

Gamelan D’Drum (concerto for world percussion) composed 2009-10 DEAR READER:

COPELAND born July 16, 1952 Alexandria, Virginia now resides Los Angeles, California

Severance Hall 2012-13

Those attending this Friday evening performance of Stewart Copeland’s concerto for orchestra and world percussion are likely to be of two camps — those very much aware of Copeland’s career as a rock-n-roll drummer and those, especially of a very classical music bent, who are still wondering “Stewart who?” Fortunately, there is plenty for everyone — to experience, to learn, to be amazed with sounds familiar and new, and together to embrace music as a very far-ranging artform, filled with variety and imagination, and with much overlap, continuity, and . . . pleasure. Stewart Copeland’s considerable achievements and fame as a rock’n’roll musician and performer are amply clear from his biography (see page 63). And were confirmed with his induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. His second career as a “serious composer” may be less well-known, although his film scores have been prolific and have included some high profile movies, including Wall Street and Talk Radio. He has also written several ballets and operas, including the opera Holy Blood and Crescent Moon, commissioned and premiered by Cleveland Opera in 1989, to a libretto by British playwright Susan Shirwen. The concerto Gamelan D’Drum traces its origins to a Dallas Symphony Orchestra gala in 2007. The percussion ensemble D’Drum, including two Dallas Symphony members, was featured on the concert, and the Symphony’s executive director wanted to commission a new work for them. Composer Stewart Copeland was chosen, and the sound world of Indonesian gamelan “orchestras” became a central idea for a concerto. Copeland and D’Drum are not the first Western classical musicians to become intrigued by Indonesian gamelan. Benjamin Britten was fascinated by the sound, a sense of which he incorporated into his orchestral vocabulary and into certain scores in particular (his ballet score The Prince of the Pagodas, for example). Francis Poulenc and Olivier Messiaen were also influenced by the sounds and culture of Indonesia. As befitting a symphonic concerto — and history’s many examples of virtuoso soloists who both inspired and advised composers, from Mozart to Brahms to Tchaikovsky — the D’Drum soloists became an integral part of the composition About the Music

At a Glance Copeland wrote Gamelan D’Drum on a commission from the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for a concerto for the world percussion group D’Drum (which is based in Dallas and includes two Dallas Symphony musicians among its five members). The work was premiered on February 5, 2011, in Dallas, under the direction of Jaap van Zweden. This concerto runs between 35 and 40 minutes in performance. In addition to the large battery of world percussion instruments played by the soloists, it is scored for an orchestra of 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing music by Stewart Copeland for the first time with this evening’s concert.

process. “It was an equal collaboration,” says D’Drum’s John Bryant. “We made suggestions about how to ‘bend’ Stewart’s ideas to suit our instruments. We’re not playing these instruments — they’re playing us!” For the world premiere in 2011, Dallas Symphony program annotator Laurie Shulman provided the following overview: “Gamelan D’Drum consists of three movements that are arranged fast-slow-fast. Resemblance to traditional concertos stops there. The piece allows some improvisation for Bryant, [Jennings], and Smith . . . but the cimbalom and marimba parts (Snider and Howard) are notated throughout. “The movement titles come from the instruments themselves and the vocabulary of gamelan culture. Klentong is a gong; Taksu refers to the spirit, the gentle rhythmic beauty that is the soul of Balinese aesthetics. Lesung is a rice trough, used for pounding rice with heavy sticks or logs. Copeland’s music takes each term as his point of departure. “The piece begins with offstage percussion, playing marching instruments. ‘It’s like what you might hear in a Balinese processional to temple,’ explains percussionist Ed Smith. ‘Even the rice farmers are musicians.’ Copeland’s music is occasionally idiomatic to what one might hear in Bali, but the gamelan vocabulary is stretched by his own harmonic sensibilities. Textures are complex. He uses bell tree, snare drum and other unpitched drums for punctuation. “In the first movement, cimbalom and marimba often play as a duet. As in other large orchestral works, the background tends to fulfill a harmonic function and the foreground a melodic function, but there are stretches where the solo percussion ensemble virtually eclipses the orchestra, coloring foreground and background differently. . . . Copeland’s roots as a drummer surface in rhythmic patterns and overlays that provide an underpinning to the music.” Throughout the piece, the soloists move about the stage, from instrument to instrument — sometimes converging on a single one that they play on together. While this can be absorbing to watch, it can be equally stimulating to, at times, close your eyes and take in this unusual soundscape without visual reference, as traditional orchestral instruments mix and match against a panoply of world percussion. Enjoy! —Eric Sellen

About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

About the Composer After rising to international stardom as drummer and percussionist for the English rock band The Police, Stewart Copeland has spent the past three decades as a composer, creating a prolific series of film scores, operas, and ballets. Copeland was born in Virginia, but spent his formative years in the Middle East, where his father was a CIA officer and his mother was an archeologist. He attended college in California before moving to England in 1975 and playing drums with the progressive rock unit Curved Air. Following the group’s dissolution, he founded The Police with singer/bassist Sting and guitarist Henri Padovani (soon replaced by Andy Summers). Beginning with their first hit, 1979’s “Roxanne,” the trio emerged as one of the most popular and innovative bands of the postpunk era, drawing upon reggae, funk, and world music. Together they created an infectious yet cerebral brand of pop music, giving birth to a series of hit singles that included “Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic,” “Every Breath You Take,” and “King of Pain.” While with The Police, Copeland earned wide critical acclaim for his intricate, textured drumwork, while also writing many of the group’s songs. His unique and at times unpredictable style of drumming has greatly influenced generations of drummers since the 1970s. At the peak of their success, The Police disbanded after touring with the 1983 blockbuster Synchronicity. By that time, Copeland was already established as a film composer, earning a Golden Globe nomination for his score to Francis Ford Coppola’s Rumble Fish. In 1985, he released the album The Rhythmatist, the product of his musical pilgrimage to Africa, followed by an ever-increasing number of film scores, including a pair of Oliver Stone features, Wall Street and Talk Radio. Other movie projects included Ken Loach’s Raining Stones, Four Days in September, and West Beirut. Copeland also spent time as a member of the pop-fusion trio Animal Logic, while pursuing other avenues for composition including the scores for San Francisco Ballet’s King Lear, Cleveland Opera’s Holy Blood and Crescent Moon, and Ballet Oklahoma’s Prey. Copeland was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2003. In 2007, he reunited with The Police to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary with a worldwide tour. Copeland currently lives in Los Angeles with his family. His autobiography, Strange Things Happen: A Life with The Police, Polo, and Pygmies, was published by Harper Collins in 2009.

The Cleveland Orchestra Center for Future Audiences T H E C L E V E L A N D O R C H E S T R A ’s Center for Future Audiences was estab-

lished to fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio. The Center was created in 2010 with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation. Center-funded programs focus on addressing economic and geographic barriers to attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center. Programs include research, introductory offers, targeted discounts, student ticket programs, and integrated use of new technologies. The goal is to create one of the youngest audiences of any symphony orchestra in the country. For additional information about these plans and programs, call us at 216-231-7464.

ENDOWED FUNDS

Maltz Family Foundation Mr. and Mrs. Alexander M. Cutler

For information about contributing to this major endowment initiative, please contact the Orchestra’s Philanthropy & Advancement Department by calling Jon Limbacher, Chief Development Officer, at 216-231-7520.

THANK YOU

for helping develop tomorrow’s audiences today.

New!

The Cleveland Orchestra’s catalog of recordings continues to grow. The newest DVD features Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony recorded live at Severance Hall under the direction of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst in 2010 and released in May 2011. And, released in 2012, Dvořák’s opera Rusalka on CD, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival. Writing of the Rusalka performances, the reviewer for London’s Sunday Times praised the performance as “the most spellbinding account of Dvořák’s miraculous score I have ever heard, either in the theatre or on record. . . . I doubt this music can be better played than by the Clevelanders, the most ‘European’ of the American orchestras, with wind and brass soloists to die for and a string sound of superlative warmth and sensitivity.” Other recordings released in recent years include two under the baton of Pierre Boulez and a third album of Mozart piano concertos with Mitsuko Uchida, whose first Cleveland Orchestra Mozart album won a Grammy Award in 2011. Visit the Cleveland Orchestra Store for the latest and best Cleveland Orchestra recordings and DVDs.

the world’s most beautiful concert halls, Severance Hall has been home to The Cleveland Orchestra since its opening on February 5, 1931. After that first concert, a Cleveland newspaper editorial stated: “We believe that Mr. Severance intended to build a temple to music, and not a temple to wealth; and we believe it is his intention that all music lovers should be welcome there.” John Long Severance (president of the Musical Arts Association, 1921-1936) and his wife, Elisabeth, donated most of the funds necessary to erect this magnificent building. Designed by Walker & Weeks, its elegant

Georgian exterior was constructed to harmonize with the classical architecture of other prominent buildings in the University Circle area. The interior of the building reflects a combination of design styles, including Art Deco, Egyptian Revival, Classicism, and Modernism. An extensive renovation, restoration, and expansion of the facility was completed in January 2000. In addition to serving as the home of The Cleveland Orchestra for concerts and rehearsals, the building is rented by a wide variety of local organizations and private citizens for performances, meetings, and gala events each year.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor William Preucil, violin

A great ballet score and the world premiere of a new violin concerto — this program features musical works from across the past century, led by guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero. The concert begins with Stravinsky’s lively ballet score Pétrouchka, in which a puppet tries to find true love. Here, Stravinsky draws a riveting portrait of townsfolk and human longings in brilliant rhythms and memorable melody. Plus, concertmaster William Preucil premieres a brand-new concerto. The concert ends with the Frenchman Ravel’s exquisite portrait of Spanish tastes.

Internationally-acclaimed cellist Yo-Yo Ma joins The Cleveland Orchestra for one special evening, performing Antonin Dvořák’s magnificently majestic Cello Concerto. The program under guest conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto also includes Copland’s rollicking El Salón México, and Revueltas’s dark and disturbing Sensemayá. Ma also partners with the Orchestra for John Williams’s tranquil Elegy, built upon fragments from the score to the movie Seven Years in Tibet. Tickets are on sale now for this special gala event of the season, raising funds to support the Orchestra’s education and community programs.
