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

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 opened on October 5 featuring 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 is 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 Audiophile 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. The last movement virtually bubbles with infectious wit and digital confidence. . . . [In Concerto No. 21] 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!”

Cleveland Orchestra’s Distinguished Service Award presented to Maltzes

The Cleveland Orchestra’s season of Family Concerts opens on Sunday afternoon, October 28, with “Halloween Spooktacular III.” Intended for children ages 7 and older, the series is designed to introduce young people to classical music. Subscription packages for all three concerts in the series, as well as individual tickets, are now available. In addition to each one-hour Orchestra concert, the Family Concert Series features free, pre-concert activities, including an “Instrument Discovery” in which children can try playing various instruments. At “Halloween Spooktacular!” on Sunday, October 28, families are invited to wear Halloween costumes and join The Cleveland Orchestra for an afternoon of fun ghost tales in this story-based program featuring Halloween favorites including Night on Bald Mountain (Mussorgsky), Danse Macabre (Saint-Saëns), “Infernal Dance” from The Firebird (Stravinsky), and the Tale of Baba Yaga (Mussorgsky). The concert is led by conductor Kelly Corcoran. The series continues in 2013 with “Symphony Under the Sea” on Friday evening, March 8, led by conductor Robert Franz, followed by “Fables, Fantasies, & Folklore” on Sunday afternoon, May 12, led by conductor Michael Butterman.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s seventeeth annual Distinguished Service Award was presented to Milton and Tamar Maltz at the start of the Orchestra concert on October 6. The award, created in 1996, honors a person or organization that has provided continuing exemplary service to the Musical Arts Association, the non-profit parent organization that operates The Cleveland Orchestra, Severance Hall, and Blossom Festival. The Maltzes have demonstrated exceptional and continuous dedication to The Cleveland Orchestra and the arts community in Northeast Ohio across four decades. They have been generous contributors to the Orchestra’s Annual Fund and to special projects such as, in 2000, the internationally acclaimed renovation of Severance Hall. In 2010, their visionary leadership helped launch The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences, which was generously endowed with a lead gift of $20 million from the Maltz Family Foundation. The Center was established to create and fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.

Pétrouchka,1 Burleske in Four Scenes composed 1910-11; revised for smaller orchestra 1947 performed in the 1947 edition WHEN THE BALLET IMPRESARIO

by

Igor

STRAVINSKY born June 17, 1882 Oranienbaum, near St. Petersburg died April 6, 1971 New York

Sergei Diaghilev visited Stravinsky in Lausanne, Switzerland, in the fall of 1910, he was expecting to hear the first sketches for The Rite of Spring. Instead, the composer played him part of a new orchestral piece inspired, as Stravinsky later said, by “a distinct picture of a puppet, suddenly endowed with life.” A solo piano would play the puppet, “exasperating the orchestra with diabolical cascades of arpeggios.” Diaghilev took the short step from the composer’s fantasy to an idea for a ballet, and persuaded Stravinsky to finish the piece in that form. Produced the following year by the Russian Ballet with choreography by Fokine, Pétrouchka has been a ballet perennial ever since. In 1921, Stravinsky made a solo piano transcription for Arthur Rubinstein that remains a popular recital showpiece. In 1947, Stravinsky returned to the score again, reducing and clarifying its orchestration, apparently to make it more practical for concert performance and less dependent for its impact on dancing and scenery (and also to help extend its copyright); this is the version that is heard on this weekend’s concerts. In the ballet, the burlesque love-triangle story of three puppets is framed by scenes of revelry at St. Petersburg’s Shrovetide Fair, or Mardi Gras. As the curtain rises, a crowd of people of all ages and social classes is milling around the square. After some bustling figures in the music, Stravinsky quotes directly an Easter Song from the province of Smolensk, which he found in a collection of 100 Russian Folk Songs arranged by his teacher Rimsky-Korsakov. A street musician sets up a hurdy-gurdy, then another comes along with a music box. Their duel for the crowd’s attention creates a kind of atmosphere of chaos and bitonalism reminiscent of the music of Charles Ives; this will be echoed in the bitonal music of the puppet Pétrouchka.1 A sudden roar of drums calls a halt to this rivalry, as the Showman steps through the curtain stage center and draws it aside to reveal the 1 Stravinsky and Diaghilev called their ballet score Pétrouchka (pronounced PE H- TRUESH - KA), using the then-current French transliteration from Russian of the puppet’s name, Петрушка. A variety of alternative spellings and more modern transliterations can be found — on recordings, program books, and printed scores — including Petrushka, Petroushka, and Pétrouchka. In Russian, in addition to being a familiar puppet character, the word Petrushka (or however one spells it) is a familiar nickname for young boys named Piotr (or Peter).

three puppets — Pétrouchka, the Ballerina, and the Moor — on their stands. With his flute, he seems to bring them to life, to the crowd’s amusement — and then their amazement, as the puppets leap down from the stage and dance among the people to the “Russian Dance,” a combination of original Stravinsky tunes with a folk song from the county of Totemsk. The driving rhythms, repeated phrases, and barbaric energy of this section delighted the 1911 audience — and similar ideas, pushed a few steps further in The Rite of Spring two years later, would cause the most famous protest demonstration in music history. The tattoo of drums from the fair now becomes the way Stravinsky will announce each new scene of the ballet, beginning with Scene 2 in Pétrouchka’s cell, where two clarinets play the phrase, in the clashing keys of C major/F-sharp major, that symbolizes not only Pétrouchka’s clownish character, but his dual nature, half-puppet, half-human. The puppet’s rage at his helplessness and dependence on the Showman is relieved for a time by a visit from the Ballerina, with whom he is in love. His frantic response to her delicate dance frightens her off, and in his frustration he knocks a hole in the cardboard wall separating his box from that of the Moor. Scene 3 takes place in the cell where the richly-dressed Moor lounges, playing with a coconut. (His musical portrait, painted with bass clarinet, english horn, drum, harp, and cymbals, recalls the jangling “Janissary” music with which Mozart and his Viennese contemporaries depicted the menacing Turks.) The Moor’s brutal yet sensual character proves irresistible to the Ballerina, who enters to a march tune for solo trumpet, then dances a delicate puppet-waltz with him (both of whose themes are borrowed from the early Viennese waltz master Joseph Lanner); the stumbling english horn makes it clear that the Moor has two left feet. The jealous Pétrouchka rushes in on this scene, only to be chased off by the Moor. In Scene 4, the frame pulls back to take in the entire fair again, and we hear shimmering string chords that suggest a wheezy accordion. The merry scene includes groups of wetnurses and coachmen dancing separately and together, a peasant with a performing bear, a drunken merchant scattering bank notes among the crowd, and masqueraders representing the Devil and his companions Greed (a pig) and Lust (a goat). Actual Russian folk tunes abound, including two in the wetnurses’ dance (one lively and one lyrical), and, following the Severance Hall 2012-13

bear’s ponderous dance, a strongly-marked staccato theme in unison strings for the coachmen. The Devil drives all this revelry to a fever pitch, at which point Pétrouchka and the Moor burst out of the puppet theater. Pétrouchka has saved the Ballerina from rape by the Moor; he and the Moor fight briefly, and Pétrouchka is killed. Barely noticing this incident, the crowd wanders off, leaving the Showman to collect his broken puppet, while the ghost of Pétrouchka jeers at him (in acid muted trumpets) from atop the little theater. —David Wright © 2012

At a Glance Stravinsky composed the ballet Pétrouchka between August 1910 and May 1911 for Sergei Diaghilev’s company, the Ballets Russes. It was presented for the first time at the Théàtre du Châtelet in Paris on June 13, 1911; Pierre Monteux conducted, with Vaslav Nijinsky dancing the role of Pétrouchka and Tamara Karsavina as the Ballerina; the choreography was by Michel Fokine, with sets and costumes by Alexandre Benois, who had also helped Stravinsky with the storyline and to whom the score was dedicated. Stravinsky reorchestrated the score for a slightly smaller orchestra in 1947. Pétrouchka runs about 35 minutes in performance. Stravinsky’s 1947 version calls for an orchestra of 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, english horn, 3 clarinets (one doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, snare drum, tambourine, tam tam, triangle, cymbals, xylophone), harp, piano, celesta, and strings.

Pétrouchka was first presented in Cleveland as a fully-staged ballet, in March 1916 performances by the touring Ballet Russes; the presentation was sponsored by the Musical Arts Association as its first undertaking after its incorporation in 1915. The Cleveland Orchestra and the Ballet Russes de Monte Carlo collaborated in staged performances of the ballet in December 1934 and again in March 1937. The Orchestra’s first concert performances of the ballet music were given at Severance Hall in December 1932, conducted by Artur Rodzinski. Stravinsky conducted performances with the Orchestra in 1937 and again in 1947 (leading Scene One in a reading from his newly revised score edition). Since then, the music has appeared on the Orchestra’s programs with some frequency, utilizing both the original scoring and Stravinsky’s revised scoring from 1947. The most recent performances were in November 2008, led by Paavo Järvi.

with Bill Preucil goes back many years and had its origins in 1979 when he asked me casually, as I was leaving a concert, if I had written anything for violin. I said, “no, I haven’t,” and he introduced himself and said that we should stay in touch. In 1985, I received a phone call from Nancy Chalifour, then artistic administrator for the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, asking if I would like to be commissioned to write a work for their concertmaster. I answered, “Yes, that would be great! Who is the concertmaster?” And the answer was, of course, Bill Preucil. The premiere of that first concerto took place in November of 1987. Over the years I have written several works for this extraordinary violinist. Linda and Jack Hoeschler commissioned a Partita for Violin and Piano that he premiered at the Santa Fe Chamber Music Festival. After Bill left the Atlanta Symphony, he became the first violin in the Cleveland Quartet and arranged for a commission from Richard Bogomolny to write Concerto for String Quartet and Orchestra, premiered by that quartet with The Cleveland Orchestra in September of 1995. Also over the years, various works for violin and piano have been written for Bill and pianist Arthur Rowe. So, now this Violin Concerto No. 3 is probably the twelfth work in which we have collaborated and where Bill has been the featured soloist. It has been a joy to work with him again. The first movement begins with gentle strings and a high opening from the violin. A little triplet theme finally gets the movement rolling and appears throughout the movement in various guises. The orchestra has been used in a lean manner so as to always make room for the violin to be heard. The second movement opens with harp and strings before hearing the soloist in a short lyrical statement, which becomes more extended shortly thereafter. Long, lyrical violin melodies are accompanied by strings with woodwinds, brass, harp, and percussion making little commentaries throughout. The movement becomes more driving as it evolves and eventually reaches a climactic point with tutti orchestra. It winds down to a gentle About the Music

close with the violin playing a pseudo-Celtic type of melody over strings interspersed with a flute solo. The third movement begins promptly with the soloist playing groupings of sixteenth notes in rapid succession. Strings, brass, percussion, and woodwinds interject frequently and help to give a sense of propulsion. The movement gathers in both intensity and drive and culminates with violin octaves and three final “hammer blows” from the orchestra. My gratitude goes not only to William Preucil and The Cleveland Orchestra, but also to Linda and Jack Hoeschler as well as Mary and Peter Dahlen, who helped make this new work possible. —Stephen Paulus, 2012

has been hailed as “a bright, fluent inventor with a ready lyric gift” in The New Yorker. His prolific output of more than 450 works is represented in many genres, including music for orchestra, chorus, chamber ensembles, solo voice, keyboard, and opera. Paulus’s music has been described by critics and program annotators as rugged, angular, lyrical, lean, rhythmically aggressive, original, often gorgeous, moving, and uniquely American. He writes in a musical language that has been characterized as “irresistible in kinetic energy and haunting in lyrical design.” (Cleveland Plain Dealer) “Mr. Paulus often finds melodic patterns that are fresh and familiar at the same time. . . . His scoring is invariably expert and exceptionally imaginative in textures and use of instruments.” (New York Times) Paulus has received commissions from the New York Philharmonic, Cleveland Orchestra, Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Minnesota Orchestra, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, Houston Symphony, and Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, with subsequent performances including the orchestras of Los Angeles, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Washington D.C., and the BBC Radio Orchestra. He has served as composer-in-residence for the orchestras of Atlanta, Minnesota, Tucson, and Annapolis, and his works have been championed by such eminent conductors as Neville Marriner, Kurt Masur, Christoph von Dohnányi, Leonard Slatkin, Robert Shaw, and others.

Commissions and performances have come from such companies as the Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, Washington Opera, Boston Lyric Opera, Florida Grand Opera, Berkshire Opera Company, Minnesota Opera, and Fort Worth Opera, among others, as well as many universities and colleges. His choral works have been performed and recorded by some of the most distinguished choruses in the United States, including the Dale Warland Singers, New York Concert Singers, Los Angeles Master Chorale, Robert Shaw Festival Singers, New Music Group of Philadelphia, Master Chorale of Washington D.C., Vocal Arts Ensemble of Cincinnati, VocalEssence, Mormon Tabernacle Choir, and dozens of other professional, community, church, and college choirs. He is one of the most frequently recorded contemporary composers, with his music represented on over fift y recordings. A recipient of both Guggenheim and National Endowment for the Arts Fellowships, Paulus is also a strong advocate for the music of his colleagues. He is co-founder and a past board vice president of the American Composers Forum, the largest composer service organization in the world. In addition, Paulus serves on the ASCAP board of directors as the concert music representative, a post he has held since 1990.

At a Glance Paulus wrote his Violin Concerto No. 3 between March and August 2012. The work was commissioned by The Cleveland Orchestra for William Preucil, with generous support from Linda and Jack Hoeschler as well as Mary and Peter Dahlen. The work is receiving its world premiere performances with this weekend’s concerts. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Paulus scored it for an orchestra of 3 flutes, 3 oboes, 3 clarinets, 3 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion (cymbals, chimes, bell tree, bass drum, snare drum, tom-toms, tambourine, tamtam, rachet, crotales, claves, marimba, glockenspiel, xylophone), harp, and strings, plus the solo violin. The Cleveland Orchestra has previously performed Paulus’s Three Places of Enlightenment (Concerto for String Quartet), which was given its world premiere at Severance Hall in September 1995, and the Violin Concerto (No. 1) in April 2006.

Rapsodie espagnole [Spanish Rhapsody] composed 1895-1908 R A V E L’ S “ R A P S O D I E E S P A G N O L E ”

was preceded by a long line of works by French composers inspired by Spain, from Bizet’s Carmen to Chabrier’s España. Yet it would be wrong to think that Ravel, writing his first composition for full orchestra, wanted merely to follow a fashionable trend. To Ravel, Spain was a very personal matter indeed. He was born a short distance from the Spanish-French border, though he never crossed it growing up. His mother was of Basque origin, spoke fluent Spanish, and sang many Spanish folksongs to her son. Ravel always considered Spain his second musical homeland, and Spanish influences are evident in his work from the early Habanera to his last completed composition, the three Don Quichotte songs. Rapsodie espagnole is therefore much more than an orchestral showpiece involving Spanish rhythms and melodies. It is a composition in which Ravel presented some of his deepest feelings about Spain. Instead of transporting the listener into some kind of a generic sunlit landscape with castanets, Ravel did something infinitely more subtle in this piece, which seems more a dream of Spain than an evocation of the real country. THE MUSIC

Of the work’s four movements, the first three are somewhat subdued and wistful preludes to the “Feria,” the longest section and the only one to display that fiery temperament that most people in France associated with their southern neighbors. But even in the final movement, we find a rather lengthy middle section where the sun temporarily disappears behind the clouds. The first and second movements share a common motif of four descending notes (F — E — D — C-sharp), repeated as an ostinato, from the Italian word for “stubborn,” and meaning a constantly returning or repeated pattern. This motif, which is heard again in the brooding middle section of the “Feria,” creates an aura of mystery, dampening the excitement of the characteristic Spanish rhythms that are present throughout the work. In the first movement, “Prélude à la nuit” (“Prelude to the Night”), the four-note descending motif is heard almost conSeverance Hall 2012-13

At a Glance Ravel composed his Rapsodie espagnole (“Spanish Rhapsody”) in 1907, except for the third-movement “Habanera,” which is the orchestration of a work originally written for two pianos back in 1895. Rapsodie espagnole was premiered on March 15, 1908, at the Colonne Concerts held at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris, under the direction of Edouard Colonne. This work runs about 15 minutes in performance. Ravel scored it for 2 piccolos, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, sarrusophone (a now-obsolete wind instrument often replaced by the contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, side drum, cymbals, triangle, tambourine, castanets, tam-tam, xylophone), celesta, 2 harps, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole in January 1928, at a pair of subscription concerts conducted by the composer. The most recent performances were led by Robert Spano in December 2005.

stantly, setting up an atmosphere of expectation. This repeated ostinato leads into a cadenza for two clarinets, followed by the only real melody of the movement, played by the solo violin with the accompaniment of harps and celesta and lasting only four measures. The cadenza is then repeated by two bassoons, and the ostinato motif brings the movement to a close. The second movement, “Malagueña,” is named after a dance, related to the fandango, from the region of Málaga in southern Spain. The dance is pared down to its bare rhythm, with orchestral color taking the place of thematic material. Only occasionally do we hear a melodic fragment; the music is mostly soft and dreamy, though it once rises to a brief fortissimo climax played by the entire orchestra. This is, however, immediately followed by soft and slow music (a haunting, recitativelike english horn solo), and the movement ends in a hush. The next movement, “Habanera,” was written 13 years before the rest of the Rapsodie. In fact, it was one of two works for two pianos that were performed only once at the time they were written, under the whimsical title Sites auriculaires (“Auricular Sites”). Ravel withdrew the pieces after that initial performance. Even so, Claude Debussy borrowed the manuscript from his younger colleague, and Ravel later claimed that the second movement of Debussy’s piano cycle Estampes (“Engravings”), titled “La soirée dans Grenade” (“Evening in Granada”), written in 1903, contained material derived from his — Ravel’s — Habanera. It is remarkable how well this movement fits with the other movements written years later. If it were not for the absence of the four-note motif, one probably wouldn’t guess that the “Habanera” wasn’t composed with the rest of the Rapsodie. The music has the same understated intensity as the first two movements — a far cry from Bizet’s sensual “Habanera” from Carmen. According to Ravel’s instruction, the rhythm is las, or “weary.” The brilliant orchestration, which features harp glissandos and divided strings, dates from 1908. In the last movement, “Feria,” the veil that has hung over the music until now is finally dropped. The exuberance of the music is reminiscent of Debussy’s Ibéria (the second of the orchestral Images pieces), although, as in the case of “Habanera,” Ravel was again ahead of his older contemporary. Ibéria, begun in 1905, was not completed until late 1908, after the premiere of the Rapsodie on March 15 of the same year. About the Music

A MEMORABLE PREMIERE

Ravel had to orchestrate the Rapsodie in great haste and at the last minute. Twelve days before the premiere, Ravel wrote to Ralph Vaughan Williams, to whom he had given some composition lessons shortly before: “My Rapsodie espagnole is supposed to be performed at a Colonne concert on March 15, and only the 4th movement is orchestrated!” Ravel managed to complete the orchestration in time for the concert on Colonne’s fashionable Sunday afternoon series. The long program included works by Lalo, Schubert, Rimsky-Korsakov, Fauré, Franck, and Wagner, in addition to the new work. The “Malagueña” was greeted by some hissing from the main floor, occupied by the wealthy and socially prominent. But the artists and students in the gallery demanded the movement be repeated — and it was. In his book on Ravel, the musicologist Roland-Manuel, who was one of Ravel’s closest friends, writes: “This encore was followed by certain ironical murmurs from the orchestra stalls. It was then that the thunderous voice of [composer] Florent Schmitt asked from the top of the gallery: ‘Just once more, for the gentlemen below who haven’t been able to understand’.” According to another version of the story, Schmitt shouted: “Tell them it’s Wagner and they’ll find it very good.” Despite the dissenters, the critical response to the work was generally favorable. Performances soon followed all over Europe and the United States, and Ravel’s fame began to spread beyond the borders of his native country. —Peter Laki © 2012

Giancarlo Guerrero Principal Guest Conductor Cleveland Orchestra Miami

The 2012-13 season marks Giancarlo Guerrero’s fourth year as music director of the Nashville Symphony and second year as principal guest conductor of Cleveland Orchestra Miami. He made his Cleveland Orchestra debut in May 2006. He has led the Orchestra in concerts in Miami, at Severance Hall, at the summertime Blossom Festival, and in its annual downtown community concert in Cleveland. Mr. Guerrero’s recent seasons in Nashville have included an opening gala with Yo-Yo Ma, as well as world premieres of a new work by Richard Danielpour, a Béla Fleck banjo concerto, and a Terry Riley concerto for electric violin. This season, in addition to his work conducting concerts and in community engagement activities with Cleveland Orchestra Miami, he makes his debuts with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Deutsches Symphonie Berlin, and has return engagements with the orchestras of Boston, Philadelphia, Toronto, and São Paulo. Internationally, he led a five-city European tour with the Monte Carlo Philharmonic last season, and this year leads performances in Australia with the Adelaide Symphony and Auckland Philharmonic. A fervent advocate of new music and contemporary composers, he has collaborated with and conducted works by some of America’s most respected composers, including John Adams, John Corigliano, Michael Daugherty, Osvaldo Golijov, Jennifer Higdon, Aaron Jay Kernis, and Roberto Sierra. His first album with the Nashville Symphony, on Naxos, featured works by Daugherty and won three 2011 Grammy Awards. Two more albums have been released, of music by Argentine legend Astor Piazzolla and by American composer Joseph Schwantner; the latter recording received a Grammy Award earlier this year. A strong proponent of young musicians and music education, Mr. Guerrero returns annually to Caracas, Venezuela, to conduct the Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar and to work with young musicians in the country’s much-lauded El Sistema music education program. This season he will also work with student orchestras at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia and the Colburn School in California. Born in Nicaragua and raised in Costa Rica, Giancarlo Guerrero received a bachelor’s degree in percussion from Baylor University and his master’s degree in conducting from Northwestern University. He was music director of Oregon’s Eugene Symphony (2003-09) and served as associate conductor of the Minnesota Orchestra (1999-2004). He received the American Symphony Orchestra League’s Helen M. Thompson Award recognizing outstanding achievement among young conductors. Prior to his tenure in Minnesota, he was music director of the Táchira Symphony Orchestra in Venezuela.

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.

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


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.
