Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director November 2012 Welcome to Severance Hall! Everyone in The Cleveland Orchestra family is pleased that you are here with us today. As you look around at your fellow audience members, there’s an increasing chance that you will see young people, especially students from some of Northeast Ohio’s many educational institutions. Two years ago, we established the Center for Future Audiences to fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio. The Center was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation. Our objective is to have one of youngest audiences of any symphony orchestra in the country. Since the beginning of this season, we have made huge strides toward that ambitious goal. In fact, the number of students attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall has more than doubled over the same period last year. This year, we’ve had an average of more than 200 students at every evening subscription concert — on some nights, students have represented more than 20% of the crowd. This surge in student attendance is a result of the programs supported by the Center for Future Audiences, especially those funded by a $5 million endowment gift from Alexander and Sarah Cutler to encourage student attendance. We have a number of initiatives and promotions to attract students to Severance Hall. Two stand out: The introduction this season of a Student Frequent FanCard, which gives students flexibility and encourages frequency of attendance. Equally important, is our network of a dozen student ambassadors, representing five area colleges, who volunteer their time promoting student concertgoing and helping to create a vital social media presence around The Cleveland Orchestra. Our commitment to student attendance and a younger audience is part of a Cleveland Orchestra renaissance, as we commit to being ever more relevant to our hometown and ever more devoted to community service. Orchestra Gala 2012 Our annual fundraising Gala was held on Saturday, November 3, to raise funds in support of the Orchestra’s Education and Community Programs. Featuring The Cleveland Orchestra and virtuoso cellist Yo-Yo Ma, the event attracted a full house, including more than 400 generous donors who enjoyed a pre-concert reception and a wonderful post-concert dinner. The magical evening, which yielded almost $700,000, owes much to the leadership of Gala Chair Norma Lerner and Corporate Chair Beth Mooney. Please join me in thanking our chairs, along with the evening’s major sponsors, KeyBank, The Lerner Foundation, and Audrey and Albert Ratner.

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.

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

All of the students from participating schools will attend a Cleveland Orchestra concert at Severance Hall, and their teachers will participate in professional development workshops and concert preparation. The Orchestra’s award-winning Learning Through Music program includes ongoing visits from Cleveland Orchestra musicians in the schools. The pilot partnership will eventually expand to incorporate all nine Breakthrough Schools. The Cleveland Orchestra partnership with Breakthrough Schools is funded in part by Cliffs Natural Resources.

OrchestraNews Telecast of Cleveland Orchestra video recording of Bruckner Symphony No. 4 shown on WVIZ on Monday, October 29

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Channel 25 WVIZ/PBS ideastream® broadcast the world premiere of The Cleveland Orchestra in Performance: Bruckner Symphony No. 4 on Monday evening, October 29. Conducted by Franz Welser-Möst, the performance was filmed earlier this year at the beautiful 17thcentury baroque Abbey of St. Florian in Austria. Emmy Award-winner 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). The recording will be available for purchase as a DVD in the future. 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 monas-

tery of St. Florian, and later served as organist there. 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 by support from Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich and Tele München Group for electronic media projects.

The Cleveland Orchestra


OrchestraNews The Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra, now in its 27th season, performs its first Severance Hall concert of the 2012-13 season on Sunday, November 11. James Feddeck, in his fourth season as music director of the Youth Orchestra, conducts a program that opens with Antonín Dvořák’s Carnival Overture, followed by Sergei Prokofiev’s Suite from Lieutenant Kijé, Opus 60. After intermission, the program concludes with Howard Hanson’s Symphony No. 2, nicknamed “Romantic.” Tickets for the concert are just $10. The evening begins with a chamber music performance by ensembles from the Youth Orchestra as a special Prelude Concert in Reinberger Chamber Hall beginning at 6 p.m. The Prelude program is free to concert ticketholders. The Prelude features works by Beethoven, Mozart, and de Renoit. The chamber ensembles are coached by members of The Cleveland Orchestra. Each of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra’s concerts this season is to be broadcast on later dates by WCLV 104.9 FM. The November 11 concert is scheduled to be broadcast at 4:00 p.m. on Sunday, January 27, 2013, and 8:00 p.m. on Saturday, August 10, 2013.

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!”

The Cleveland Orchestra’s season of Family Concerts began with a fun-filled afternoon on Sunday, October 28 titled “Halloween Spooktacular III.” Intended for children ages 7 and older, the series is designed to introduce young people to classical music. The Halloween program included favorite musical hits and also featured a costume contest for audience members. The Orchestra musicians onstage also got into the “spirit” of the occasion with many theme-related outfits. 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. The series continues in 2013 with “Symphony Under the Sea” on Friday evening, March 8, led by conductor Robert Franz — including favorite musical numbers from Disney’s Little Mermaid. The series closes with “Fables, Fantasies, & Folklore” on Sunday afternoon, May 12, led by conductor Michael Butterman — in an exploration of music storytelling and fun.

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Contrasts& Similarities O N T H I S W E E K ’ S C O N C E R T S , four works date from across nearly

τ

200 years. There is a comparison to be observed in Beethoven’s style and mood from two works in B-flat major, one from the middle period, one from the late period. The Fourth Symphony begins the concert, the Grosse Fuge follows after intermission. Nevertheless, these two Beethoven works may seem less alike than the other two pieces on the evening programs — from two composers a century apart who share a world of artistic visions outside of music. A new work by MatthiThe installation of Anselm Kiefer’s Chute d’Étoiles as Pintscher, Chutes d’Étoiles in the Grand Palais in Paris in 2007. (“Falling Stars”), is linked to the work of the artist Anselm Kiefer, while Scriabin’s Le Poème de l’extase (“The Poem of Ecstasy”) reflects the composer’s intense vision of a world of mystical rapture. Both of these works utilize a large orchestra, as well as large ideas. Only the Scriabin and Beethoven are featured on the Friday Morning Concert, providing contrasts from across two centuries. —Hugh Macdonald Hugh Macdonald is Avis H. Blewett Professor Emeritus of Music at Washington University in St. Louis and is a noted authority on French music. He has written books on Beethoven, Berlioz, and Scriabin.

Three symphonies (the Fourth, Fift h, and Sixth) followed in succession, each very different from the others in character and scale. The Fourth is always observed to be less forceful and dramatic than the Third and Fifth, but it surpasses them in athletic energy and, in places, in sheer beauty of sound. Yet Beethoven’s purpose was never quite what it seems, so that simply to characterize the Fourth as “light-weight” or “relaxed” is to tell only a part of the story. Robert Schumann compared it to a “slender Greek maiden,” but even he would admit that the extremes of seriousness and skittishness found in the work do not properly belong to such a maiden’s drapery. The Fourth Symphony was composed mainly in 1806 and first performed the following year in Vienna at the house of Prince Lobkowitz (whose family heritage of Beethoven memorabilia has recently been restored to their residence in Prague, now a museum). It was dedicated to Count Oppersdorff. Beethoven enjoyed the hospitality and support of both noblemen at that time. Like many of Haydn’s symphonies — and a few of Mozart’s — Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony opens with a slow introduction. The purpose of these introductions was not to foreshadow the themes or even the mood of the rest of the movement, but to act like the overture to an opera, and accustom the audience to the orchestra’s sound and to induce a serious concentration. In the “Eroica,” Beethoven had dispensed with an introduction, but the Fourth has a fine one, dark and mysterious in character, and without any clear sense of direction until a fortissimo burst and some rocket-like figures in the violins force the issue. Once the main Allegro vivace section — and the true key of the symphony, B-flat major, is established — all tension evaporates. The standard procedures of classical sonata form fall into their assigned places. In the development, the actual pace of the music is still brisk, but the harmonic pace is very slow, giving an impression of immense breadth, like a glance forward to Wagner or Bruckner. Beethoven keeps us waiting expectantly for the return of the opening theme, even after the correct key has been firmly reached. The rest of the movement About the Music

duly follows, with only a brief coda, not another massive peroration in the manner of the “Eroica.” The main melody of the slow movement is of wonderful serenity. The second melody, introduced by the solo clarinet, provides not contrast but rather completion, as though the whole first paragraph were a single sentence. There are stern pages in this movement, bleak pages, too, but its profound placidity marks it off as one of the greatest of Beethoven’s slow movements. None of his contemporaries could approach him on this ground. Although marked Menuetto, the third movement has the character of a scherzo, with teasing cross-accents and a lively pace. The Trio section is a little slower, and pastoral in character. The strings join it later with some strange rumbling inner lines, and the original tempo returns. Beethoven repeats the whole process, so that the Trio is heard twice, the Scherzo three times. The finale is as muscular and energetic as a tiger. The bustling opening theme has no introduction and immediately plunges into the bass register. It is more often used as accompaniment than as theme, though it can serve either purpose. The flow is sometimes broken by more relaxed passages and there is an extraordinary series of harsh baying chords that recur from time to time. The recapitulation is marked by the spotlight falling briefly and famously on the first bassoon, and at the end the principal melody stops running, apparently exhausted. But its faint is merely a feint. This is another of Beethoven’s jokes — just when you think his melody cannot keep going even one bar more, it leaps up and slaps you rudely in the face.

At a Glance Beethoven composed his Fourth Symphony during the summer and early fall of 1806. The first performance took place at Prince Lobkowitz’s residence in Vienna in March 1807; the first public performance was at the Burgtheater on April 13, 1808. Beethoven conducted both performances. This symphony runs about 35 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony during the 1924-25 season with founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff. The most recent performances were led by Herbert Blomstedt at Severance Hall in April 2006.

Chute d’Étoiles [Falling Stars] composed 2007-2012

W I T H A B R A Z E N O U T C R Y from a massive orchestra — an explosion, a breakdown, a collapse — Matthias Pintscher’s Chute d’Étoiles begins. The title (“Falling Stars”) refers to Anselm Kiefer’s monumental art installation of the same name in the Grand Palais in Paris in 2007 and engages with it in a complex intellectual exchange, matching it in force and drama. Not just an homage to Kiefer the artist and his œuvre, however, this orchestral composition also incorporates motifs and material from Pintscher’s works of recent years. Through the image of falling stars — the idea that the world was born from an explosion — Kiefer combines destruction and creation. Creation emerges from the process of obliteration, as one state breaks down and gives birth to a new one. “We are born and do not know why. And if you do not cling to it, if the cosmos does not help you, you are lost. We come from there! We were born with the first explosion. We consist of elements of the cosmos. And so we carry the infinitely great in us as well as the infinitely small. It is the microcosm and the macrocosm. I place myself in it and then I attempt to express what I feel using my resources.” (Anselm Kiefer) Pintscher has long admired this artist, his work, and his rigorous evolution. “He is one of the few artists in whose earliest works you can already find exactly the same aura and archaism that he has refined up to the present. There is an idiom of strength and clarity that he has continued to develop further for over forty years. I find it very exciting to see such consistency in an artist’s work.” Chute d’Étoiles is an homage to Kiefer and at the same time a translation of the apocalypse depicted by the artist — the collapse of the world and of our conceptions of it — into the medium of sound. The starting point for Pintscher’s orchestral composition was “the sound and aura of the entire installation: an inspirational moment that enabled me to think further about the force of sounds I have previously developed. The material is, so to speak, melted into lead — the entry of the solo trumpets is

Composer Matthias Pintscher discussing Chute d’Étoiles with Michael Sachs in rehearsal at the Lucerne Festival; and acknowledging applause with Franz Welser-Möst, Sachs, Jack Sutte, and The Cleveland Orchestra after the world premiere on August 25, 2012.

“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

like opening two valves of a gigantic instrument made of lead, which supplies air in a very finely-chiseled and concise form.” Janus-faced, the orchestral sound gives birth to a breathing voice — yet a voice that does not appear as one individual, but is instead articulated in two forms. The trumpet part unfolds as one instrument playing in two directions. This goes back to a method Pintscher used fifteen years ago in his composition Janusgesicht (“Janus Face”): “There is no virtuoso struggle between the two; rather, they mutually inspire each other, they represent the same attitude, playing the same repertoire of sounds and techniques. One part fans out in two ways.” And instead of the orchestra and soloists entering into a concertante dialogue, the trumpets are much more “like growths, they are fused onto this orchestral sound. In concentrated form, they release the aggregate of this lead-like orchestra, guiding it into various states as soon as they exit this orchestral space.” Both the softness and the heaviness of lead, which Kiefer uses in his works, provide an inspiring starting point: “I find the ‘sound’ of lead in Kiefer’s works incredibly fascinating. The strength that is captured in this material! It is flexible, malleable, yet unbelievably heavy. I find this state of matter, with its combination of softness and heaviness, to be exciting— this is what I try to make audible in the music.” In terms of form, the composition does not trace a conventional dramatic development. Pintscher creates a sculpture, an eruptive sound object, which propels the events from the opening outburst. In the process, explains the composer, “the ending mirrors the beginning. Individual particles break loose from the force of the opening explosion, which are then led, transformed, and developed into a concentrated mode, at the end almost finding their way back into their original state. And yet the trumpet lines are not isolated at the end, but are positioned at the top of the sound in a high attack; at the highest point, the whole then breaks off.” Some of Pintscher’s motifs, ideas, and techniques, which were present in his earlier works, culminate in Chute d’Étoiles. In Occultation, he had employed the technique of overlayering. Connections and associations with the theme of stars are likewise evident in Osiris (for orchestra) and the ensemble piece Bereshit. All of these works thematize myths of creation and destruction, of coming to be and obliteration.

At a Glance Pintscher completed Chute d’Étoiles (“Falling Stars”) in May 2012. It is the sixth Roche Commission, a multiyear initiative sponsored by the Swiss pharmaceuticals company Roche involving the commissioning and premieres of new works as part of a partnership between The Cleveland Orchestra, Lucerne Festival, and Carnegie Hall. The work was premiered on August 25 as part of the 2012 Lucerne Festival, with Franz Welser-Möst leading The Cleveland Orchestra and with Michael Sachs and Jack Sutte as soloists. This works runs about 20 minutes in performance. Pintscher scored it for 3 flutes (second doubling alto flute, third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets (second doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons (second doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (cymbals, gongs, laying gong, bell plates, bells, canpane, bass drum, bongos, tam-tams, guiro, temple blocks, metal blocks, wood blocks, sandpaper blocks, spring coils, marimba, crotales, lion’s roar, flexitone, vibraphone), harp, piano, and strings, plus the two solo trumpets.

About the Composer M A T T H I A S P I N T S C H E R sees the two main spheres of his music making — conducting and composing — as entirely complementary. As a composer, his intrinsic understanding of the score informs his ability to communicate on the podium. “My thinking as a conductor is informed by the process of my own writing,” he says, “and vice versa, of course.” His compositions are often noted for the delicate sound-world they inhabit, the intricacy of their construction, and their precision of expression. He regularly conducts throughout Europe, the United States, and Australia. In June 2012, he was named by the Ensemble Intercontemporain as its next music director, beginning with the 2013-14 season. Matthias Pintscher was The Cleveland Orchestra’s second Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow, 2000-02. During this period, the Orchestra commissioned and performed the world premiere of his with lilies white (May 2002) and subsequently performed the United States premieres of his CHOC (Monumento IV), his violin concerto en sourdine (both in May 2003), and his Five Orchestral Pieces (September 2007). Pintscher made his Cleveland Orchestra conducting debut with CHOC (Monumento IV). He also led the Orchestra in concerts in October 2006 and November 2010, and returned in June 2010 to lead a retrospective program of works created through the Lewis Young Composer fellowship program. Now in his third season as artist-in-association with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Pintscher’s conducting work with the ensemble includes both regular subscription and contemporary series concerts, covering the entire repertoire of music from the Baroque period to today. Guest conducting engagements this season include debuts with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, New World Symphony in Miami, and the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. He is also conducting an all-Beethoven program in Chicago, including a choreographed production of The Creatures of Prometheus. He has return engagements with the New York Philharmonic, Curtis Orchestra, and the Scharoun Ensemble of the Berlin Philharmonic (for the 25th anniversary celebration of the chamber hall at the Berlin Philharmonie). In addition, he appears in the Leading European Composers series at the Phillips Collection in Washington D.C. Matthias Pintscher was born in Marl, Germany, in 1971. He studied conducting with the Hungarian conductor and composer Peter Eötvös, but composing began taking a more prominent role in his life in his early twenties. Soon thereafter, he began dividing his professional life equally between conducting and composing. Mr. Pintscher makes his home in New York and Paris. His works are published exclusively by Bärenreiter-Verlag. Matthias Pintscher works and records with Kairos, EMI, ECM, Teldec, Wergo, and Winter & Winter.

Grosse Fuge in B-flat major, Opus 133 composed 1825 E V E N BY B E E T H OV E N ’ S S TA N DA R D S ,

by

Ludwig van

BEETHOVEN born December 16, 1770 Bonn died March 26, 1827 Vienna

Severance Hall 2012-13

the Grosse Fuge is an extraordinary work. On its own, it has a puzzling intensity, and in its original context as the finale of a long, complicated, profound string quartet, it is even more mystifying. That quartet, the Quartet in B-flat major, Opus 130, is a six-movement work that embodies all the richness and complexity of Beethoven’s late years. Its fifth movement is the famous Cavatina, a piece that leaves very few of us anywhere but in a remote heaven of emotion. To follow it, Beethoven originally conceived of an enormous fugue, far surpassing any fugue he had ever written in its many-layered design — and in the tough demands he makes on players and listeners alike. The quartet was written rapidly between July and November 1825, at a time when Beethoven’s obsessively paternal regard for his nephew Karl was leading inexorably to the point of crisis. It was performed a few months later, when the public and Beethoven’s publisher found the finale incomprehensible. The composer was persuaded to detach it from the rest of the work, publish it separately and put another, less ambitious finale in its place. He may have agreed to do so, not so much because the quartet was disfigured or overburdened by it, but because it contains so many facets and contrasts that it makes a remarkably whole and complete work on its own. The fugue theme is drawn from the four notes that featured prominently in the previous Quartet in A minor, Opus 132. The chromatic contour becomes insistently familiar as the fugue proceeds. Several clearly separate sections can be identified when listening. The opening, headed Overtura, is a forceful unison statement of the theme, followed by brief foretastes of sections to come — like a table of contents in a book, or a movie preview. The first main section is furiously loud and emphatic for an almost unendurable length, or so it seems. There is no relief until a complete change of key and character appears (marked Meno mosso e moderato) like a central slow movement. This moves directly into a brisk Allegro molto, much more tuneful and exultant, although it passes through innumerable complex corridors, with much trilling and erupting, before finally exorcising all memories, and closing with youthful gaiety — like a About the Music

return to the distant world of Beethoven’s earliest music. It was Hans von Bülow, a formidable pianist and champion of Beethoven’s music, who first arranged the Grosse Fuge for string orchestra, when he was serving as music director to the Duke of Meiningen from 1880 to 1885, introducing the weight of the double bass section to the original four instrumental parts. He instilled such discipline in his orchestra that he had the entire string section playing the work from memory, standing up! They performed it this way in Berlin soon after and caused a sensation.

Beethoven composed the Grosse Fuge as the last movement of his String Quartet in B-flat major (Opus 130) in the late summer and early autumn of 1825. It was first performed — with the preceding five movements of that quartet — on March 21, 1826, by the Schuppansigh Quartet of Vienna. The publisher Artaria, however, requested a new finale for Opus 130, one that would be easier to perform. Beethoven wrote a new finale in November 1826; it was the last completed music that he wrote and was not performed until after his death in 1827. The Great Fugue was published separately in May 1827 and bears a dedication to the

Archduke Rudolph, Beethoven’s patron, pupil, and friend. This work runs nearly 20 minutes in performance. Beethoven’s original scoring for string quartet is enlarged and augmented in this weekend’s performances for string orchestra, including doubling of sections of the bass line by double basses. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented the Grosse Fuge in November 1964, conducted by Lukas Foss. The most recent performances were during the 2000-01 season at Severance Hall and on tour in Europe and the United States, conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi.

The Poem of Ecstasy, Opus 54 composed 1905-08 L E P O È M E D E L’ E X T A S E

by

Alexander Nikolayevich

SCRIABIN

born January 6, 1872 Moscow died April 27, 1915 Moscow

Severance Hall 2012-13

(“The Poem of Ecstasy”) is a superb example of the huge, self-obsessed orchestral repertoire from the period before World War I, which we generally associate with Gustav Mahler and Richard Strauss. Scriabin was a strongly progressive and individualistic composer who saw himself as the prophet of a new cosmos, and his works as the voice of a divine being. Like many Russians who, once they are attached to an idea, pursue it relentlessly to its ultimate point, blind to other influences — Mussorgsky and Tolstoy come to mind — Scriabin was driven by a powerful inner force to capture his mystical vision in music. He is easily dismissed as a crazy megalomaniac, but his music is superbly crafted and excitingly modern, even today. Most of Scriabin’s music is for the piano, with some important orchestral works composed at regular intervals throughout his short career. His previous orchestral work, the Divine Poem, was a three-movement symphony completed in 1904, when he was thirty-two. It ventured into the territory of philosophical abstraction, which had begun to consume his mind shortly before. His next orchestral work was to be a symphony entitled Orgiastic Poem, but it eventually emerged as a one-movement work, the Poem of Ecstasy, giving an even greater prominence to the composer’s obsession with the spirit’s search for ecstasy and his monomaniac belief in his own creativity. Alongside the orchestral piece, Scriabin wrote a long verse-poem of the same name, full of mystical fantasizing, which also embraced his Fifth Piano Sonata in its grandiose vision. But while the poem is safely ignored as the rambling of a deluded egomaniac, the orchestral work is a masterpiece that stands fittingly beside the other great orchestral creations of those years. Le Poème de l’extase was completed early in 1908 and first performed later that year in New York, under the composer’s friend Modest Altschuler. Two months later, it was played in Moscow under Vasily Safonov, and it was soon adopted by orchestras all over the world keen to present the latest in advanced music. The orchestra is large, and contrasts of mood are extreme, yet the piece has a concentration that was to become even more pronounced in Scriabin’s final orchestral work, Prometheus: About the Music

57


Poem of Fire, of 1910. While Mahler’s symphonies were reaching further out into all realms of human thought, Scriabin’s were concentrating into a densely packed kernel of feeling and belief. The themes have particular functions. For example, the opening theme on the flute is the theme of longing; the clarinet’s melody over hazy strings is a dream theme, and the trumpet’s succession of rising phrases with a chromatic descent is “victory.” Galloping horns offer “dark presentiments.” Such labels are easily understood in the context of 19th-century program music, although a sustained interpretation of their relationship is hardly possible or desirable. We have simply an alternation of moods in the composer’s mind, with a clear recapitulation of the opening material leading to an ecstatic climax. The emotional intensity is extreme, whether languid and erotic, playful and volatile, or triumphant. The textures are intricate and complex, yet the harmonic progress is generally simple and broad. The key of C major, in which it closes, had come to represent Scriabin’s central focus after years of living in remote tonal regions. The next step, which he took shortly after, was to cut loose from tonality altogether. Scriabin was thus, with Schoenberg and Debussy, one of the most progressive and visionary spirits of his time. —Hugh Macdonald © 2012 At a Glance Scriabin wrote Le Poème de l’extase (“The Poem of Ecstasy”) in 1905-08, while living outside his native Russia and travelling across much of Europe and visiting the United States. (The work was later designated as his Symphony No. 4 by his publisher.) The work was given its world premiere on December 10, 1908, in New York City, with the Russian Symphony Society of New York under the direction of Modest Altschuler. This symphony runs about 20 minutes in performance. Scriabin scored it for 3

flutes, piccolo, 3 oboes, english horn, 3 clarinets, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 8 horns, 5 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, tamtam, cymbals, triangle, glockenspiel, bell), celesta, 2 harps, organ, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Scriabin’s Poem of Ecstasy in November 1922, conducted by founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been performed a few times since then, most recently in February 1999, conducted by Oliver Knussen.

The Cleveland Orchestra


‘‘

The Cleveland Orchestra’s excellence is a reflection of the musicians who are a part of it and the people who support it. Cleveland has created and sustained a great orchestra because of people who are passionate about quality. Excellence begins with the community — and we are privileged to be a part of the best community in the world.

‘‘

—Franz Welser-Möst


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.

A program of great and satisfying music for the Thanksgiving Weekend. Hailed as “one of a half-dozen pianists worth dropping everything to hear” (London Daily Telegraph), Louis Lortie returns to Severance Hall to play Chopin’s effervescent Second Piano Concerto. Hear for yourself why the Financial Times proclaims that “better Chopin playing than this is not to be heard, not anywhere.” The program under guest conductor Jaap van Zweden concludes with Rachmaninoff’s grand Second Symphony, filled with sweeping melodies, lush harmonies, and inspired lyrical passages.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA James Feddeck, conductor with Pink Martini

The group Pink Martini returns to Severance Hall for a special holiday celebration with The Cleveland Orchestra.
