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.

CLEVELAND 1923

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

“[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 CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Channel 25 WVIZ/PBS ideastream® will broadcast the world premiere of The Cleveland Orchestra in Performance: Bruckner Symphony No. 4 on Monday evening, October 29, beginning at 9:00 pm. Conducted by Franz WelserMöst, the performance was filmed earlier this year at the beautiful 17th-century baroque Abbey of St. Florian in Austria. Emmy Awardwinner Brian Large directed the video recording. This is the first video produced of the recent critical edition of the 1888 version of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, edited by Benjamin Korstvedt and published in the Bruckner Collected Works edition (Vienna, 2004). Nicknamed “Romantic” by Bruckner himself, the Fourth Symphony is Bruckner’s most popular and most-performed work. Composer Anton Bruckner was a choirboy at the monastery of St. Florian, and later served as organist there.

Although he moved to Vienna, he chose to be buried in a crypt below the Abbey of St. Florian. Internationally recognized for his presentation and interpretation of Bruckner’s symphonies, Cleveland Orchestra Music Director Franz Welser-Möst has conducted Bruckner symphonies with The Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall in Cleveland, the Musikverein in Vienna, Suntory Hall in Japan, Seoul Arts Center in South Korea, Lincoln Center in New York, and the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria. This recording of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4, which is the fifth in a series of recordings that includes Bruckner Symphonies Nos. 5, 7, 8, and 9, will be released commercially by Clasart. These Cleveland Orchestra recordings were made possible in part with support from Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich and Tele München Group for electronic media projects.

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!”

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.

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

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Shimmering Ideas& Ideals THIS WEEKEND’S CONCERTS

τ

feature three musical works written within ten years of each other one hundred years ago, at the start of the 20th century. The music looks forward and backward, with both progressive and conservative musical ideas. The evening concerts begin with a charming work by Anatoli Liadov, a Russian composer who reportedly lacked self-confidence to the extreme, but who nonetheless managed to write several mesmerizing musical portraits. The Enchanted Lake, from 1908, is a brief and beautiful evocation of the shimmering, shifting translucence within the glasslike surface of a lake. Here, Liadov created a Russian landscape through the impressionistic musical lens most often associated with Claude Debussy. The two longer works on the program represent something like stylistic opposites. The unabashed Romantic warmth and melodies of Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano ConJean Sibelius certo, from 1900-01, stir with strong emotional feelings. Sibelius’s Second Symphony, from 1901-02, while equally passionate and melodic, rumbles between a kind of distilled heat and strong, chilling passions. If Rachmaninoff was more than happy to wear his emotions on his sleeve, Sibelius was more intent on contemplating his emotions — and letting them out carefully, for effect. Rachmaninoff’s concerto is filled with grand feelings, while the Sibelius symphony is rendered as a magnificent experience. —Eric Sellen

Severance Hall 2012-13

the stature of a Tolstoy or a Dostoyevsky, Russian novelist Ivan Goncharov (1812-1891) created at least one figure that became immortal for capturing a state of mind prevalent in 19th-century Russian society. Oblomov, the hero of Goncharov’s novel of the same name from 1858, was the epitome of the physical and intellectual sloth who was also denounced in so many of Anton Chekhov’s works. The word oblómovshchina found its way into every Russian dictionary, with the meaning of “laziness, indolence, inactivity.” Unable to get up in the morning, Oblomov lay in bed for a long time trying to come to a decision; at last, “looking at his slippers, he began lowering one foot down towards them, but at once drew it back again.” As English musicologist Gerald Abraham observed years ago, “the supreme example of oblómovshchina in music is a composer born just three years before Goncharov published his book, Anatoli Liadov.” Liadov’s proverbial laziness seems to have had much to do with psychological factors — an almost pathological lack of self-confidence and a shyness in public that made all kinds of social interaction, and even the carrying out of his duties as a professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, extremely difficult for him. When Liadov was a student at the same conservatory, he had been expelled after failing to show up in class for an extended period of time; he was later re-admitted on account of his obvious and exceptional musical talent. But time and again, works of his that had been scheduled for performances had to be cancelled because he had been unable to finish them. A famous episode with the ballet impresario Sergei Diaghilev and the Ballets Russes was by no means the only example of this — after giving up hope that Liadov would ever deliver the promised score, Diaghilev turned to the young and unknown Igor Stravinsky, whose score for The Firebird made history. Despite his “oblómovism,” Liadov was supremely gifted, a fact that did not go unrecognized in Russian musical circles. He was a spiritual child of the moguchaya kuchka (a group of influential Russian composers also known as “the Five”), and a pupil and friend of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. Other members of “the Five,” including Mussorgsky and Borodin, thought very highly of Liadov. One of his own students described Liadov with About the Music

great warmth and admiration, calling him “the veritable image of old Russia . . . a very extraordinary representative of the now dying type of Russian craftsmanship and art morals.” Saminsky described him as a brilliant teacher who hated to teach, a man who was strangely aloof most of the time but could make casual remarks that provided inspiration for years. (Another Liadov student, a boy named Sergei Prokofiev who entered the St. Petersburg Conservatory at the age of 13, was much less appreciative of Liadov’s teaching methods.) Liadov, as everyone in Russian musical circles knew, was working on an opera for decades, but never got around to actually writing it. He was at his best in short character pieces for piano, chorus, or orchestra. His most successful orchestral works are Baba Yaga, The Enchanted Lake, and Kikimora. Shorter than most symphonic poems, these pieces, instead of telling a story with contrasting episodes, present single musical tableaux. Each shows Liadov’s excellent mastery of the orchestra and some interesting parallels with French music of his generation, especially with some of Debussy’s impressionistic techniques. Liadov referred to The Enchanted Lake as skázochnaya kartinka (a “fairytale picture”). The use of the word “picture” is significant. The piece seems to depict the motionless surface of a lake, without placing it explicitly in the context of any particular fairytale. Russian musicologist Boris Asafyev wrote that Liadov had been inspired in part by a forest pond near his home in Polynovka, and in part by his reading of the Finnish folk epic Kalevala (in which lakes play an important role and which also inspired the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius.) Musically, the piece was undoubtedly inspired by Wagner’s “Forest Murmurs” from the opera Siegfried, where considerable rhythmic activity ultimately serves to depict total immobility. Liadov’s work almost completely dispenses with thematic material in the traditional sense; it is animated by the ever-changing combinations of instrumental colors. The lack of true motivic development results in a feeling of placidity and timelessness that, according to one writer, is “akin to that induced by the telling of an oft-repeated and much loved fairytale.”

At a Glance Liadov composed the orchestral legend Volshebnoye ozero (“The Enchanted Lake”) in 1908. The first performance was given in February 1909, with Nikolai Tcherepnin leading the orchestra of the St. Petersburg Conservatory. This work runs just over 5 minutes in performance. Liadov scored it for 3 flutes, 2 oboes, 3 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, timpani, bass drum, harp, celesta, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra presented The Enchanted Lake at the first ”Popular Concert” of its first season, in December 1918, with Nikolai Sokoloff conducting. It was programmed regularly during the subsequent two decades before fading from the Orchestra’s general repertoire. The most recent performances were in December 1996, when Jahja Ling included it on a weekend of Severance Hall concerts.

Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Opus 18 composed 1900-01 RACHMANINOFF

was born into what had been a wealthy family. Unfortunately, his spendthrift father had squandered much of their wealth, and the forced sale of estates triggered a move to St. Petersburg. One advantage of the relocation was that the artistically inclined young boy now found himself in Russia’s most musical city. Early piano lessons expanded into formal study of piano and composition at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, and later at the Moscow Conservatory, from which he graduated with honors in 1892. Various early successes followed, both as pianist and as composer. Yet the 1897 premiere of his First Symphony under the appalling leadership of a literally drunken conductor was, in Rachmaninoff ’s own words, “a fiasco.” Beaten down by the merciless criticism, and utterly unwilling to risk further humiliation, he swore off composition in favor of performing as a pianist. Three years passed, years of success at the keyboard. Yet Rachmaninoff still held back from composition. At last, his family persuaded him to seek professional help. The young composer began frequent consultations with Dr. Nicolai Dahl, a pioneer in techniques of hypnotism, and, not incidentally, an avid amateur musician. Rachmaninoff later described the experience of his treatment: “I heard the same hypnotic formula repeated day after day while I lay half asleep in an armchair in Dahl’s study: ‘You will begin to write your concerto. You will work with great facility. The concerto will be of excellent quality.’ It was always the same, without interruption. Although it may sound incredible, this cure really helped me.” After three months of hypnotic sessions, he again found the courage to compose — and completed his Second Piano Concerto within a few months. Its premiere was given to great acclaim in Moscow on November 9, 1901, with the composer himself as soloist. A compositional career was reborn. In gratitude, Rachmaninoff dedicated the score to Dr. Dahl, perhaps the only hypnotist ever to earn such an honor from a major composer. As a virtuoso pianist, Rachmaninoff composed for the instrument not only according to his own tastes but also according to his own strengths. For later performers, the results are further complicated by the fact that Rachmaninoff was a tall and lanky man with an astonishing reach to his hands. Pianists About the Music

of small proportions need not apply, and even those of average size will find challenges. The great pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy observed in an interview with Gramophone magazine that for playing Rachmaninoff, he wishes his fingers were a centimeter longer. Moreover, as Rachmaninoff could play both quicksilver, lightning-fast runs and also strong and powerful chords with equal mastery, he includes both in his piano parts, requiring a highly varied technique. For the pianist, it is not music for the faint of heart, yet the rewards are worth the challenge for performers and audiences. The first movement of Rachmaninoff ’s Concerto No. 2 opens with dark, paired chords for the soloist, building into stormy runs. Only belatedly does the orchestra join in with the first of the main melodies, rich and lyrical, while the soloist provides color and sparkle. As the movement develops, additional melodic themes appear, generally assertive in nature. By contrast, the second movement is gentle, sweetly romantic, like a candlelit dinner. Frequently, Rachmaninoff gives beautiful themes to the woodwinds, making this concerto especially satisfying for this central family in the orchestra. Drama returns in the final movement, with a march-like beat in the first bars, demanding runs for the soloist, and at last a grand, flowing melody to overlie those runs. Rachmaninoff builds a strong sense of motion that drives all the way to the final bars. More often than not, it is the orchestra — not the soloist — that has the melodies, while the soloist colors and underscores the action, drawing the eye and ear, even if it is with the orchestra that a listener is humming. In later years, Rachmaninoff ’s reputation as a gifted craftsman of melodies led various songwriters of the 20th century to borrow his themes for their songs. Those familiar with pop music will find within this concerto the source material for “Full Moon and Empty Arms,” “Ever and Forever,” “If This is Goodbye,” and “This is My Kind of Love.” Of special interest may be the 1975 hit “All By Myself ” by Eric Carmen, who is the nephew of Muriel Carmen, who served as a violist in The Cleveland Orchestra from 1951 to 1994. —Betsy Schwarm © 2012 Betsy Schwarm spent twenty years as a classical radio announcer and producer.

About the Music

At a Glance Rachmaninoff composed the second and third movements of his Second Piano Concerto in the summer and early autumn of 1900. This incomplete version was heard at a charity concert in Moscow on October 14, with the composer at the keyboard and Alexander Siloti conducting. Rachmaninoff finished composing the work’s opening movement the following spring. The completed concerto was premiered exactly one year after the earlier preview, on October 14, 1901; Rachmaninoff and Siloti performed with the orchestra of the Moscow Philharmonic Society. This concerto runs about 35 minutes in performance. Rachmaninoff scored it for an orchestra with pairs of woodwinds (2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons), 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, cymbals, bass drum, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Rachmaninoff’s Second Piano Concerto in February 1921, with pianist Ossip Gabrilowitsch and conductor Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been performed frequently since that time, including performances with Rachmaninoff as soloist in 1923 and 1942, and, most recently in regularly scheduled performances, in April 2011 when Horacio Gutiérrez played it under the direction of Jirí Belohlávek.

Symphony No. 2 in D major, Opus 43 composed 1901-02 JEAN SIBELIUS

was more than Finland’s greatest composer of international reputation. For the Finns, he was — and still is — a national hero, who expressed what was widely regarded as the essence of the Finnish character in music. In his symphonic poems, Sibelius drew on the rich tradition of the ancient Finnish epic, the Kalevala, both for his storylines and for the rhythms of its speech turned into music. And in his seven symphonies, he developed a style that has come to be seen as profoundly Finnish and Nordic. It was a logical continuation of the late Romantic tradition inherited from Johannes Brahms, Edvard Grieg, and Pyotr Tchaikovsky, and at the same time a highly personal idiom to which he held steadfastly in the midst of a musical world filled with an increasing multiplicity of new styles. Each of Sibelius’s symphonies has its own personality. The Second is distinguished by a predilection for melodies that sound like folksongs — although Sibelius insisted that he had not used any original folk melodies in the symphony. We know, however, that he was interested in the folk music of his country and, in 1892, he visited Karelia, the Eastern province of Finland known for the archaic style of its songs. It was perhaps Sibelius’s avowed interest in folksong that prompted commentators to suggest a patriotic political program for the Second Symphony. The conductor Georg Schnéevoigt, a close friend of Sibelius and one of the most prominent early performers of his music, claimed that the symphony’s first movement depicted the quiet pastoral life of the Finnish people, with the subsequent movements outlining, in turn, the Russian oppressors, the awakening of national resistance, and finally the triumph over foreign rule. These ideas were certainly timely as the 19th century turned into the 20th, when Finland was in fact ruled by the Russian Czar and nationalist sentiments were growing. But Sibelius himself never made any statements about such a “program” within the Second Symphony. In the first movement, Sibelius “teases” the listener by introducing his musical material in bits and pieces, and taking an unusually long time to establish connections among the various short motifs introduced. The gaps are filled in only gradually. Eventually, however, the outlines of a symphonic form become About the Music

evident and by the end of the movement everything falls into place. In his 1935 book on Sibelius’s symphonies, Cecil Gray observed: “Whereas in the symphony of Sibelius’s predecessors the thematic material is generally introduced in an exposition, taken to pieces, dissected, and analyzed in a development section, and put together again in a recapitulation, Sibelius in the first movement of the Second Symphony inverts the process, introducing thematic fragments in the exposition, building them up to an organic whole in the development section, then dispersing and dissolving the material back into its primary constituents in a brief recapitulation.” The second movement (“Tempo andante, ma rubato”) opens in a quite exceptional way — a timpani roll followed by an extended, unaccompanied passage of low strings (double basses and cellos in turn) played pizzicato (“plucked”). This gives rise to the first melody, marked lugubre (“mournful”) and played by the bassoons. This continues the exclusive use of low-pitched instruments in this opening section, but slowly and hesitatingly, the higher woodwinds and strings enter. Little by little, both the pitch and the volume rise, and the tempo increases to Poco allegro, with a climax marked by fortissimo chords in the brass. As a total contrast, a gentle violin melody, played very very softly at triple pianissimo and in a new key, starts a new section. The lugubre theme, its impassioned offshoots, and the new violin melody dominate the rest of the movement. The movement ends with a closing motif derived from this last melody, made more resolute by a fuller orchestration. The third movement (“Vivacissimo”) is a dashing scherzo with a short and languid trio section. The singularity of the trio theme, played by the first oboe, is that it begins with a single note repeated no less than nine times, yet it is immediately per-

ceived as a melody. The rest of the theme is eminently melodic, with a graceful tag added by the two clarinets. After a recapitulation of the scherzo proper, the trio is heard another time, followed by a masterly transition that leads directly into the triumphant finale without a break. The first theme of the fourth-movement Finale is simple and pithy. It is played by the strings at a forte (“loud”) dynamic, to a weighty accompaniment by low brass and timpani. The haunting second theme has a four-line structure found in many folksongs, and is played by the woodwinds much softer than the first theme, though eventually rising in volume. After a short development section, the triumphant first and the folksong-like second themes both return. Repeated several times with the participation of ever greater orchestral forces, the second theme builds up to a powerful climax. The first theme is then restated by the full orchestra as a concluding, triumphant gesture. —Peter Laki © 2012 Peter Laki is a musicologist and frequent lecturer on classical music.

Sibelius composed much of his Second Symphony during the spring of 1901 while in Italy and completed it in Finland during the winter of 190102. It was first performed on March 8, 1902, in Helsingfors (Helsinki) with Sibelius conducting. The symphony was published in 1903 with a dedication to Axel Carpelan, who had made Sibelius’s Italian trip possible. This symphony runs about 45 minutes in performance. Sibelius scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings. Sibelius’s Second was first performed in the Cleveland area on March 16, 1917, by the New York Philharmonic conducted by Joseph Stransky.

Robin Ticciati British conductor Robin Ticciati is principal conductor of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and principal guest conductor of the Bamberg Symphony. Each season, he strives to maintain a balance between his orchestral engagements and operatic performances. He is making his Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s concerts. Born in London in 1983, Robin Ticciati is a violinist, pianist, and percussionist by training, and also studied music at the University of Cambridge. His paternal grandfather was a composer and arranger, and his brother is a violinist. He was a member of the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain when he turned to conducting, at age 15, under the guidance of Colin Davis and Simon Rattle. Mr. Ticciati founded the chamber ensemble Aurora, which made its debut in 2005, the year in which he received a Borletti Buitoni Trust Fellowship. Recent and future conducting engagements include concerts with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Filarmonic della Scala, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, London Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Philadelphia Orchestra, Rotterdam Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the Swedish Radio Symphony. In addition to his current positions, he served as artistic advisor and chief conductor of the Gävle Symphony Orchestra (2006-09) and was music director of Glyndebourne on tour (2007-09). In opera, Mr. Ticciati’s schedule includes Mozart’s Don Giovanni at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and the Zurich Opera, Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro at Glyndebourne and the Salzburg Festival, Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel at the Metropolitan Opera, Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at London’s Royal Opera House, and Britten’s Peter Grimes at La Scala Milan. When he becomes music director of the Glyndebourne Festival Opera in 2014, he will be the first Tour director to be named music director of the full Glyndebourne Opera company. Robin Ticciati’s discography includes Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique with the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, released earlier this year. With the Bamberg Symphony, he has conducted a recording of Brahms’s Haydn Variations and Serenade No. 1, and an album of choral works by Brahms in collaboration with the Bavarian Radio Chorus; the latter recording received Germany’s Echo Klassik award.

The Cleveland Orchestra: Serving the Community The Cleveland Orchestra draws together traditional and new programs in music education and community involvement to deepen connections with audiences throughout Northeast Ohio

P H OTO G R A P H Y BY R O G E R M A S T R O I A N N I

T H E C L E V E L A N D O R C H E S T R A has a long and proud history of sharing the value and joy of music with citizens throughout Northeast Ohio. Education and community programs date to the Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s founding in 1918 and have remained a central focus of the ensembleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actitivities for over ninety years. Today, with the support of many generous individual, foundation, corporate, and governmental funding partners, the Orchestraâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s educational and community programs reach more than 70,000 young people and adults annually, helping to foster a love of music and a lifetime of involvement with the musical arts. On these pages, we share photographs from a sampling of these many programs.

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.

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.

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.
