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.

SPOTLIGHT

Franz Welser-Möst has led efforts to have The Cleveland Orchestra perform at public schools in Northeast Ohio, including this performance in October 2010 at Cleveland’s John Adams High School, which included Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.

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.

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

THE CLEVELAND ORC

“[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 Cleveland Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fridays@7 series takes a new turn this season, incorporating world music and American roots music into the Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s classical programs. The popular series, now in its fourth season, is sponsored by KeyBank and features four concerts during the 2012-13 season, each combining a Cleveland Orchestra concert with pre- and post-concert performances of world music. Gamelan Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Drum, composed by Stewart Copeland, drummer and founder of The Police, is featured in the first performance of the series on October 5. Copeland will be at Severance Hall for the Cleveland premiere featuring Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Drum, a five-member world percussion ensemble from Texas. The percussionists join the Orchestra and conductor James Feddeck in the â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconventionalâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;exoticâ&#x20AC;? work that features 70 multi-cultural percussion instruments.

Banjo virtuoso BĂŠla Fleck joins the Orchestra and conductor Giancarlo Guerrero to perform the concerto in its Cleveland premiere. The KeyBank Fridays@7 Series pairs orchestral programs at 7 p.m. with the discovery of different types of world music in post-concert performances by ensembles in the lobbies of Severance Hall.

Cleveland Orchestra musicians Emma Shook (violin), Lisa Boyko (viola), and Carolyn Warner (piano) join with former Orchestra cellist Diane Mather for a recital on Sunday afternoon, October 7, at Rocky River Presbyterian Church (2174 Detroit Road, Rocky River). The free concert begins at 3:00 p.m. and features Fauré’s Piano Quartet in E minor and Dohnányi’s Serenade for String Trio. For more information, visit www.riverpres.org.

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. The previews (see listing at right) feature a variety of speakers and guest artists speaking or conversing about that weekend’s program, and often include the opportunity for audience members to ask questions.

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Gifts of Youth & Old Age

Hindemith, Strauss, and Berlioz

T H E R E I S M U S I C of youth and music of old age, and we like to think we can observe the difference. Young composers break out in extravagant, iconoclastic irreverence; old composers look back nostalgically to earlier times and styles as if the clock had not moved forward. There are many exceptions, of course (Brahms so mature in his youth, Janáček so modern in his old age), but the three works in this weekend’s concert program neatly illustrate the contrast. Berlioz and Hindemith, both at twenty-six, introduce new sounds and new concepts without a trace of apology, while Strauss, at eighty-two, calmly allows his unstoppable creativity to cover pages of music-paper with elegant phrases and divine melody, reminiscent of an earlier age and scored with the skill of a master. —Hugh Macdonald Hugh Macdonald is Avis H. Blewett Professor Emeritus of Music at Washington University in St. Louis and is a noted authority on French music. He has written books on Beethoven, Berlioz, and Scriabin.

Kammermusik No. 1, Opus 24, No. 1 (for small orchestra) composed 1922 DURING HIS YEARS

by

Paul

HINDEMITH born November 16, 1895 Hanau, Germany died December 28, 1963 Frankfurt, Germany

Severance Hall 2012-13

at Yale, from 1940 to 1953, Hindemith established a reputation as a demanding teacher and a wise exponent of the art of composition, based on textbooks he wrote both in America and earlier in Germany. So firmly did he seem to be part of the musical establishment, it was hard to accept that as a young man he was an enfant terrible whose music sent shock waves around Germany every time a new work was produced. Hindemith was also well known as a player of both the violin and the viola; for some years he was concertmaster at the Frankfurt Opera and a member of the Amar String Quartet. When he accepted a teaching appointment at the Hochschule für Musik in Berlin in 1927, many eyebrows were raised that so daring a composer could be entrusted with the job. In 1921, when he was twenty-five, a pair of one-act operas caused a minor scandal in Stuttgart, and in the same summer his String Quartet No. 2 was a similar sensation at the first Donaueschingen Festival, close to the Swiss border. The second Donaueschingen Festival in 1922 included a rather dour song-cycle Die junge Magd and the Kammermusik No. 1, which confirmed the success of the Festival (which still flourishes today) and won nearly all the critics over to an enthusiasm for its unconventional sounds and ideas. Hindemith had composed the Kammermusik (literally “chamber music”) rapidly — he always composed rapidly — in January and February of that year, scoring it for a group of twelve players, partly, he said, because the price of music-paper was prohibitive in Germany after World War I, and partly because the new aesthetic was determined to break away from the lushness of the Romantic orchestra. Stravinsky had done something similar with L’Histoire du Soldat (“The Soldier’s Tale”) a few years earlier. In Hindemith’s score, four winds and five strings are supported by two keyboards (piano and accordion), plus an array of percussion whose special surprise is reserved for the final bars of the last movement. The accordion part was originally written for a harmonium. Also, in the original plan, the work had two central slow movements. The first of these was replaced by the brisk second movement we have now, so that the third movement provides About the Music

the only slow, reflective music in the piece. Headed with the word “Quartett,” it is a sparsely textured dialogue for flute, clarinet, and bassoon with occasional very soft touches on the glockenspiel’s F-sharp, a haunting effect. The other three movements, each of which is longer than the previous one, are brisk and bracing, with strong rhythms and plenty of dissonance. The last movement gives the feeling that Hindemith is thoroughly enjoying himself with a series of tunes in the winds, culminating in a foxtrot on the trumpet borrowed from a tune by Wilm Wilm, a composer of popular Viennese music. The strings meanwhile have a non-stop torrent of notes without any tunes, so that if Hindemith, playing the viola in the first performance, thought it was fun to write, it was far from easy to play. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012

REVIEWING THE FIRST PERFORMANCE

“It is accomplished! Modern German music has finally succeeded in taking hold of life where it rages in the most frivolous and vulgar manner. The achiever of the ‘miracle’ is the composer Paul Hindemith, in his Kammermusik No. 1. Here one encounters a music that no German composer of artistic deportment has yet dared to think of, to say nothing of writing it — a music of such lasciviousness and frivolity that it is only possible for a composer of very special type. . . . There ensues hissing and seething, a tearing, banging and pushing; a screeching and yelling assaults our ears. . . . Couples mingle literally to fox-trot melodies . . . utterly abandoned people gasp for air, and then a long, all-penetrating whistle — surely a warning signal — for the piece is promptly over. . . . It is a music that perhaps has parallels in Stravinsky, but can hardly be exceeded by him.”

At a Glance Hindemith composed his Kammermusik No. 1 in January and February 1922. It was first performed on July 31 that year as part of the 1922 Donaueschingen Festival, conducted by Hermann Scherchen. It was published along with a companion piece (Kleine Kammermusik, Opus 24, No. 2, for wind quintet) later that year. The first American performance took place in New York in February 1925, conducted by Percy Grainger. This work runs about 15 minutes in performance. Hindemith scored it for a small orchestra comprised of flute (doubling piccolo), clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, accordion, piano, percussion (one player), two violins, violaü, cello, and double bass. The Cleveland Orchestra has presented Hindemith’s Kammermusik No. 1 on two previous occasions, in January 1969 under guest conductor Szymon Goldberg (a friend and a chamber music colleague of Hindemith) and in October 1985 led by Erich Leinsdorf.

rity detachment of the American Seventh Army was searching for stolen artistic treasures in the southernmost part of Germany, close to the Austrian border. Lieutenant Milton Weiss sent his junior officer to a large house in Garmisch-Partenkirchen who reported that an elderly gentleman wished to speak to the commanding officer. As Weiss approached the villa, he heard the man say, in accented English, “I am the composer of Der Rosenkavalier and Salome.” Because Weiss had had some musical training in his Bronx childhood and played the piano, he realized that this was the composer Richard Strauss and immediately put an “off-limits” sign on the gate to prevent the house being commandeered and its occupants moved elsewhere. The musicologist Alfred Mann, born in Germany but working with the Allies as interpreter and counter-intelligence officer, arrived in Garmisch on April 29. The town’s mayor took Mann to see their most famous resident and a warm friendship developed between Mann and Strauss. Soon afterwards, one of Mann’s fellow students at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia arrived in Garmisch as a staff-sargeant in the Office of Strategic Service (OSS). This was John de Lancie, principal oboe of the Pittsburgh Symphony (under Fritz Reiner) until he was drafted in 1942. Mann took the twenty-three-year-old de Lancie to meet Strauss, a meeting that was followed by two or three more in which they conversed in French and de Lancie asked Strauss if he had ever thought of writing a concerto for oboe. Strauss’s reply was non-committal, and de Lancie assumed that that was the end of the matter. Shortly afterwards Strauss wrote to Mann: “The visit of your friend from Chicago [sic] has inspired me to write a little piece for the oboe!” The draft of the concerto was finished on September 15 and the orchestration ready at the beginning of 1946, by which time Strauss and his family had moved to Switzerland to avoid the de-Nazification tribunals he would have had to submit to. The premiere of the concerto was thus given in Zurich by the Tonhalle Orchestra’s principal oboe and conducted by one of Strauss’s old friends, Volkmar Andreae, to whom it was dedicated. The concerto’s first performance in America should by About the Music

rights have gone to de Lancie, but soon after returning to civilian life he was appointed by Eugene Ormandy to be assistant principal oboe in the Philadelphia Orchestra, the principal being his former teacher, Marcel Tabuteau, who had himself asked if he might play the American premiere and was infuriated to learn that it had been promised to his young pupil. In these circumstances, the best solution was a premiere somewhere else played by someone else. That someone was a fine oboist, better known in coming years as Mitch Miller of “Sing Along With Mitch” (who died in July 2010). De Lancie played the concerto in public only once, on tour with the Philadelphia Orchestra at Interlochen, Michigan, in the late 1960s. While the story of the concerto’s genesis is absorbing, the work itself is of disarming charm and civility, a product of the composer’s serene old age. The scoring is light and delicate, and the themes weave in and out with consummate skill. It feels as if it is divided into the conventional three movements, linked continuously together, but the finale moves into a closing Allegro section that might better be classified as a fourth movement. The solo part is famous, or perhaps infamous, for its demands on the player’s stamina and breath-control, for there is scarcely a gap in some of the longer paragraphs, notably at the very beginning, and in the slow movement, too. Oboists are nonetheless deeply grateful for such a sublime addition to what in many other ways is a slender concerto repertoire. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012 At a Glance Strauss wrote his Oboe Concerto in 1945, completing the work’s orchestration by early 1946. It was first performed on February 26, 1946, by Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra conducted by Volkmar Andreae, with the ensemble’s principal oboe, Marcel Saillet, as soloist. The first American performance took place in New York on February 1, 1948, with the CBS Symphony Orchestra conducted by Bernard Hermann and with Mitchell Miller as soloist. This work runs about 25 minutes in performance. Strauss scored it for a small orchestra comprised of 2 flutes, english horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, and strings,

plus the solo oboe. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented music from Strauss’s Oboe Concerto in the summer of 1970, when the third movement was played at a Family Matinee concert at Blossom.

Symphonie fantastique, Opus 14 Episode in the Life of an Artist composed 1830 W H E N A N E W Y O R K N E W S PA P E R

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

Severance Hall 2012-13

in 1868 described the Symphonie fantastique as “a nightmare set to music,” it was meant to be an insult. Yet this was exactly what Berlioz intended — not that the critic should have a miserable evening, but that he should grasp, even dimly, the nightmarish agonies of the composer’s own experience. Of Berlioz’s real suffering there can be no doubt. One has only to read the letters of 1829 (when Berlioz was twenty-five years old) to glimpse the torment of a composer whose mind was bursting with musical ideas and whose heart was bleeding. The object of his passion was an Irish actress, Harriet Smithson, whom Berlioz had seen on the stage two years before in the roles of Juliet and Ophelia. Since then, he had seen her only at a distance, while of his very existence she was still quite unaware. How was this unreal passion to be expressed? His first thought, naturally enough, was a dramatic Shakespearean work, perhaps a Romeo and Juliet, for which he composed, it seems, a few movements. He then set several of Thomas Moore’s Irish Melodies to music, which at least evoked the land of her birth. Once he had encountered Beethoven’s symphonies, especially the Eroica (which impressed him just as strongly as Shakespeare), he liked the idea of writing a Beethovenian symphony — except that the customary triumphant ending had no counterpart in his own world. The dilemma was resolved early in 1830 when he was informed, evidently by a new aspirant to the role of lover, that Harriet was a typical actress, free and easy with her favors and in no way worthy of the exalted passion that consumed him day and night. Now, he suddenly realized, he could represent this dramatic episode in his life as a symphony, with a demonic, orgiastic finale in which both he and she are condemned to hell. The symphony was speedily written down in little more than three months and performed for the first time later that year. It became a main item in Berlioz’s many concerts in the 1830s, for each of which he issued a printed program explaining the symphony’s narrative. Although the symphony is explicitly about an “artist” and his “beloved,” it is partially about Romeo and Juliet, and even About the Music

more obviously about himself and Harriet, as everyone probably knew. Even after Berlioz had, by a strange irony, met and married Harriet Smithson three years later, the symphony’s dramatic program remained. There can be few parallels to this extraordinary tale of love blooming in real life after it had been violently repudiated and exorcized in a work of art. All five movements contain a single recurrent musical theme, the idée fixe (“obsession”), which represents the artist’s love, and is transformed according to the context in which the artist finds his beloved. After a slow introduction (“Reveries”), which depicts “the sickness of the soul, the flux of passion, the unaccountable joys and sorrows he experienced before he saw his beloved,” the idée fi xe is heard as the main theme of the opening movement’s main Allegro section (“Passions”), with violins and flute lightly accompanied by sputtering lower strings. The surge of passion is aptly described in the volcanic first movement, although the movement ends in an unexpected picture of religious consolation. In the second movement (“A Ball”), the artist glimpses the beloved in a crowd of whirling dancers. In the third movement (“Scene in the Country”), two shepherds call to each other on their pipes, with the music depicting the stillness of a summer evening in the country, the artist’s passionate melancholy, the wind caressing the trees, and the agitation caused by the beloved’s appearance. At the end, the lone shepherd’s pipe is answered only by the rumble of distant thunder. In his despair, the artist has poisoned his beloved and is condemned to death. The fourth movement is the “March to the Scaffold,” as he is led to the guillotine before the raucous jeers of the crowd. In his last moments, he sees the beloved’s image (the idée fixe in the clarinet’s most piercing range) before the blade falls. Finally, in the fifth movement (“Dream of a Witches’ Sabbath”), the artist finds himself a spectator at a sinister gathering of spectres and weird, mocking monsters of every kind. The idée fixe appears, horribly distorted, bells toll, the religious Dies irae motif is coarsely intoned by tubas (originally written for ophicleide, a lower-pitched keyed bugle created in 1817) and bassoons, and the witches’ round-dance gathers momentum. Eventually the dance and the Dies irae join together and the symphony ends in a riot of brilliant orchestral sound. The Symphonie fantastique has remained to this day a clasSeverance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Berlioz composed his Symphonie fantastique during the spring of 1830. The work’s premiere was given at the Paris Conservatoire on December 5, 1830, conducted by François-Antoine Habeneck. This symphony runs about 50 minutes in performance. Berlioz scored it for 2 flutes (second doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets, 4 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 cornets, 3 trombones, 2 ophicleides (an older brass instrument now replaced by tuba), timpani, percussion (cymbals, bass drum, snare drum, and bells), 2 harps, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique in April 1924, under the direction of Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been programmed frequently on the Orchestra’s concerts since that time, and was most recently heard at Severance Hall in May 2010, led by Tito Muñoz, and as part of the 2008 Blossom Festival in a side-by-side performance with the Kent/Blossom Chamber Orchestra conducted by Andris Nelsons. The Cleveland Orchestra has recorded the Symphonie fantastique five times: in 1941 with Artur Rodzinski, in 1977 and 1982 with Lorin Maazel, in 1989 with Christoph von Dohnányi, and in 1996 with Pierre Boulez (winning a 1998 Grammy Award for best orchestral performance).

BERLIOZ’S BELOVED A portrait of the Irish actress Harriet Smithson, and a portrayal of her onstage as Ophelia in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Berlioz became infatuated with Smithson when he saw her perform in Paris. They eventually married, but were never really happy together.

sic document of the Romantic imagination and a great virtuoso piece for orchestra. Berlioz’s grasp of the orchestra’s potential charge was uncanny at so early an age. His writing for brass and percussion is particularly novel, and in the second movement he later added a part for solo cornet to evoke the ballroom music of his day. That movement also introduced harps into the symphony orchestra for the first time, while the finale calls for bells and the squeaky high-pitched E-flat clarinet. The ophicleide (usually replaced in modern performances by tuba) was then the normal bass brass instrument in France, relished by Berlioz for its coarse tone in such demonic contexts as this. It is curious to reflect that much of the symphony’s musical material was drawn from earlier compositions. The main melody of the third movement, for example, was recently discovered to have been the main theme of a movement in Berlioz’s early Messe solennelle, and the March to the Scaffold was rescued from an unperformed opera, Les Francs-juges. In addition, it is probable that the ballroom music was originally meant for his aborted Roméo et Juliette. If so, its new function in the symphony is strikingly apt since Romeo’s first glimpse of Juliet at the Capulets’ ball is exactly how Berlioz imagined the artist seeing his unhappy, doomed “beloved” — and not unlike his own experience on first seeing Harriet perform on stage. When Berlioz finally composed a symphony on Romeo and Juliet nearly ten years later, his ballroom music was already taken, so he had to write a new, and even more spectacular ball. The Symphonie fantastique remains the most potent example in music of the Romantic spirit in full flood, melding music, literature, poetry, imagination, and personal experience into a sensational drama — a drama of the senses and of uninhibited emotion, bursting with life. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012

Al Jarreau Al Jarreau’s distinctive vocal style has made him one of the most critically-acclaimed performers of our time, with seven Grammy Awards, scores of international music awards, and fans worldwide. Mr. Jarreau is only the second vocalist — Michael Jackson was the first — in history to net Grammy Awards in three different categories (jazz, pop, and R&B), including his most recent win for Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for “God Bless the Child” together with George Benson and Jill Scott in 2007. Al Jarreau was born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1940. He started singing at the age of four in the church choir. After receiving his masters degree from the University of Iowa, he relocated to San Francisco to begin a career in rehabilitation counseling. In San Francisco, Mr. Jarreau’s musical talents came to the fore, and he found himself singing at a small jazz club, the Half/Note, with a trio headed by George Duke. It was in this intimate setting that the album Al Jarreau and the George Duke Trio — Live at the Half/Note, was recorded in 1965, a portrait of two young musical talents on the cusp of stardom. Al Jarreau moved on to Los Angeles and New York City, where he gained national network television exposure with Johnny Carson, Merv Griffin, David Frost, and Mike Douglas, and through performances at The Improv. In 1975, he was signed to a recording contract with Warner Bros, and released his debut album, We Got By, to great acclaim. Since then, Jarreau has released more than twenty albums, spawning hits like “We’re in This Love Together,” “Teach Me Tonight,” “So Good,” and the theme song to the hit television show Moonlighting. He has performed on Broadway, guest starred on television shows, appeared in national commercials, and performed with symphony orchestras across the United States and Europe. He has collaborated on recordings with George Benson, Herbie Hancock, Paul McCartney, Jill Scott, Chris Botti, and Patti Austin, among others. Called “the voice of versatility” by the Chicago Tribune, “the greatest jazz singer alive” by Time Magazine, and “one of the world’s greatest natural resources” by the Detroit News, Al Jarreau received his own Star on the “Hollywood Walk of Fame” in 2001. After more than four decades in the industry, Jarreau is undoubtedly one of the greatest performers and innovative vocalists of our time. Al continues to tour extensively worldwide, with his sextet and symphony shows, and is currently working on a new studio album.

The Cleveland Orchestra


New album with Cleveland Orchestra and Mitsuko Uchida is now available . . . 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!”

El Sistema@Rainey performing at Severance Hall. The initiative is an intensive after-school orchestral music program launched in September 2011 by Cleveland Orchestra violinist Isabel Trautwein and Cleveland’s Rainey Institute. Modeled after the national Venezuelan program El Sistema (“the system”), the initiative emphasizes community-based orchestra training from a young age, with a focus on making music fun and inspiring young musicians with a passion for music and for life. The Cleveland Orchestra and education partner Conn-Selmer are the official providers of Scherl & Roth violins for the El Sistema@ Rainey program, with instrument support from Royalton Music for El Sistema@Rainey Summer Camp.

The Cleveland Orchestra helps celebrate the seasons and special events throughout the year. Above, the Orchestra’s horn section got into the Halloween spirit for a special fun-filled Family Concert.

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.

The lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severanceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

Meet Nancy Dotson Cleveland Orchestra Heritage Society member, former State Chair of the Blossom Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee, and Heritage Society radio ambassador on WCLV When did you begin attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts? Dick and I have lived in the area for 33 years and have been attending concerts for most of those years. What is your favorite concert experience with The Cleveland Orchestra? Without a doubt, we will never forget the concert at Severance Hall several years ago with Sir Colin Davis and Mitsuko Uchida and the Mozart Piano Concerto. Sitting in the dress circle and seeing the interaction of these two icons and The Cleveland Orchestra is something I will never forget. What is your favorite memory of The Cleveland Orchestra or Blossom Festival? Dick and I have so many wonderful memories of Blossom and Severance Hall. Living in Hudson and only 20 minutes from Blossom, our summer revolves around the lyrical weekend evenings at Blossom. Sitting on the Lawn with a glass of wine under the stars is our idea of a perfect date! Meeting various members of The Cleveland Orchestra at the summer Gourmet Matinee Luncheons or the Orchestra Picnic sponsored by the Blossom Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee have also been special treats. What reason do you suggest when extending an invitation to join the Heritage Society? It is a very special privilege to have The Cleveland Orchestra so readily accessible and convenient to attend. It is for these reasons that we made a decision to include the Orchestra in our estate planning several years ago. Leaving a legacy for future generations to enjoy this music and for the musicians to carry on the music is something we are happy we can do.

OrchestraNews The Cleveland Orchestra performs Tchaikovsky’s “The Nutcracker” with The Joffrey Ballet at PlayhouseSquare Five performances Nov 29 thru Dec 2 Tickets are now on sale for the holiday event of the season, as The Cleveland Orchestra presents The Joffrey Ballet’s complete silver anniversary production of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. Five performances will be presented at PlayhouseSquare’s State Theatre November 29 thru December 2. The production will be conducted by Tito Muñoz and mark the first time The Cleveland Orchestra has performed Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker in a fully-staged presentation. Conceived and originally directed in 1987 by Robert Joffrey, with choreographic contributions from Gerald Arpino, this production of The Nutcracker features more than 40 company dancers, 200 brilliant costumes, and larger-than-life scenery. The Chicago Sun-Times called the Joffrey’s Nutcracker “a grand showcase of classical technique that spotlights the particular talents of many of the company’s ensemble dancers,” the Chicagoist calls it “a first-class celebration of one of the greatest holiday productions ever,” and the Washington Post praised it as “a theatrical event of irresistible power.” The Cleveland cast of The Nutcracker will include sixty Northeast Ohio young dancers, who will be selected by audition, dancing side-by-side with the Joffrey company. The Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus, comprised of fift y members, also joins the performances to sing in the beautiful “Snow Scene.” “Our company looks forward to once again joining The Cleveland Orchestra” says Joffrey Ballet artistic director Ashley Wheater, “and in extending our wonderful partnership into a complete production. Our previous performances together at Blossom have included elements of a full ballet, but this time we’ll have all the sets, costumes, lighting, and the magnificent choreography of our founder Robert Joffrey.”

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.
