Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director January 2013 Welcome to Severance Hall and the first concerts of 2013! There is much good news to report about The Cleveland Orchestra’s ticket sales success in recent months and for the season as a whole. Continuing artistic success and significant programmatic changes have put the current 2012-13 Severance Hall season on track to achieve a new all-time record for ticket sales revenue. The months of November and December 2012 broke all previous records. More than 47,000 people purchased tickets for twenty-six performances, a 28% increase over the twenty-five concerts performed in the same months in 2011. This success was propelled by the most diversified programming we have ever offered, ranging from Classical, Celebrity, KeyBank Fridays@7, and Holiday Festival concerts, to The Nutcracker, Pink Martini, and Charlie Chaplin’s Modern Times accompanied by the Orchestra. Overall paid attendance filled 92% of the available seats and revenues totaled $2.8 million, an amazing 60% increase over last year. Sales are strong for the entire September-to-May season. As January begins, revenues are running 24% ahead of the same time last year and are on track to achieve an all-time record of $7.6 million. The previous record was set more than a decade ago. This season’s renaissance is a convincing sign that the public is responding to the Orchestra’s many changes. More people are attending more kinds of performances than ever before, and more new people — and young people — are entering the doors of Severance Hall to enjoy the Orchestra’s concerts each week. A surge of student attendees, attracted by diversified programs, special offers, and social media, has helped propel audience growth. The number of students attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall so far this season has more than doubled over the same period a year ago. There are many people to acknowledge and thank for this turn-around. Dozens of sponsors and donors have generously funded the innovations behind these achievements. Every one of the institution’s employees, the extraordinary members of our Orchestra and our tireless staff, has risen to the challenge of implementing change — with our dedicated trustees leading the way. Finally, thousands of longtime and new patrons have become loyal supporters, venturing with us through the many changes in recent seasons. Thank you to all. And what’s still to come? In future seasons, we will pursue ever-greater artistic achievements under Franz’s inspiring leadership, alongside continuing innovation as we work to ensure that The Cleveland Orchestra remains relevant and valuable in our ever-changing community.

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: UNDER THE LEADERSHIP

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); expansion of education and community programs in Northeast Ohio to make music an integral and regular part of everyday life for more people; the 2012-13 season includes the launch of an annual Neighborhood Residency pro-

gram that will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to neighborhoods across the region for an intensive week of special activities and performances. First stop is the Gordon Square Arts District in Cleveland’s Detroit/Shoreway neighborhood in May 2013; 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 (based on successful educational programs pioneered at home in Cleveland); 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; concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including annual appearances at Carnegie Hall; regular concert tours to Europe and Asia; 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; 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 across Northeast Ohio and in the Miami-Dade community; additional new residencies at Indiana University and at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival; the return of ballet as a regular part of the Orchestra’s presentations, featuring performances by The Joffrey Ballet; the 2012-13 season featured 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


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 conducted the New Year’s Day concert again at the start of 2013 and also leads 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.

OrchestraNews 2013 New Year’s Day concert with Franz Welser-Möst and Vienna Philharmonic recordings now available

At the end of November, Franz WelserMöst delivered an impassioned keynote address on the importance of supporting and expanding a vibrant, multi-national cultural life in modern society during a gala celebrating the Bicentennial of Vienna’s famed concert hall, the Musikverein. The event was held in the Brahmssaal of the Musikverein and also featured remarks from Austria’s president, minister of culture, and culture secretary, along with the Musikverein’s president and intendant. The event was held prior to a concert conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. Welser-Möst’s speech addressed fundamental questions about how to champion and renew culture in a world that too often marginalizes these essential elements in favor of maintaining health and welfare. “Cultivation, which must be one of the foundations of any society, requires creativity,” said Welser-Möst. “We must give this more thought, to formulate new dreams and set new goals — to aim for the impossible, both for ourselves and for coming generations, and to perhaps come just a bit closer to precisely that which we will never achieve. Any person who wants to accomplish something special does precisely this, by declaring the impossible to be the goal.”

In its history of more than seven decades, the concert has been led by many of the most famous conductors and experienced by millions of people via television broadcasts in over 70 countries. In announcing the recordings, Clemens Hellsberg, chairman of the Vienna Philharmonic, emphasized the plaudits that Franz Welser-Möst earned for this event in 2011 and his close association with the musical life of Vienna as general music director of the State Opera, making made him a natural choice to encore his role for New Year’s. For seven decades, the Vienna Philharmonic has presented this entertaining and heartfelt annual New Year’s program, featuring music from across the wide repertoire created by the Johann Strauss family dynasty and their contemporaries. The proven formula blends well-known classics with premieres of works that have never been performed before at the New Year’s Concert. This year’s program included eleven premieres (more than ever before) and also paid tribute to Wagner and Verdi, looking to the bicentennials this spring of their births.

Bell will attend the film showing. The violin, once owned by Israel Philharmonic founder Bronislaw Huberman, was stolen in 1936 while Huberman was performing at Carnegie Hall. It remained lost for nearly fifty years, and was then rediscovered in 1985, covered with shoe polish. After its return to Lloyd’s of London, a meticulous restoration process, and the sale to an English violinist, the violin was put up for sale as a museum piece in 2001. Not willing to allow such an instrument remain silent, Joshua Bell purchased the Huberman Stradivarius and uses it in many of his performances. For film tickets, call 216-241-7350 or visit

of music is its sheer variety — of sounds, of mood, of melody, rhythm, and intent. One performer or many. Chamber music, rock band, jazz riff, or live symphony orchestra. It can uplift us when we are low, refine our melancholy to a mellow sense of resignation, or amplify our feelings when we are exuberant, nostalgic, or spot on. This week’s concerts feature three works that make very suitable soundtracks for the lives of these three very different composers. Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 2, from 1880, displays fireworks, bravado, and well-crafted beauty in equal measure. While infrequently performed compared to the famous First Piano Concerto, this work, through its lack of familiarity, can offer an even stronger sense of this composer’s greatest strengths. Here, Tchaikovsky’s building blocks are more easily discerned, but no less equally enjoyed. By contrast, Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony from 1953 is a piece both harder to understand and more difficult to dismiss. It features passages of great beauty, mixed with irony, angst, and episodic celebration. The composer’s enigmatic view of life’s uncertainties in the Soviet Union — and his role as a musician for the people of his homeland — can be pondered, but never known. It is clearly one of the 20th century’s greatest symphonies, but the meaning of this music is, ultimately, a very personal choice, for composer and listener alike. And, for the audience at this week’s Friday Morning Concert, two joyful tone poems by Bedřich Smetana take the place of Shostakovich’s darker dealings. Here, the composer’s Czech homeland is celebrated in music without reservation. —Eric Sellen LIVE RADIO BROADCAST

Two Symphonic Poems from Má Vlast [My Country] composed 1873-1880 S M E TANA WRO T E



SMETANA born March 2, 1824 Litomyšl, Bohemia died May 12, 1884 Prague

Severance Hall 2012-13

the six parts of his symphonic cycle Má Vlast (“My Country” or “My Homeland”) just as he reached the age of fifty, when fame and fortune were knocking regularly on his door. And just when sudden deafness created a nearly irreconcilable gulf between himself and the everyday world around him. These tone poems were, perhaps in part, a way for the composer to recapture and hold onto the sounds of the world around him — encapsulating in music the joy and emotion in life and living. Smetana originally conceived the cycle as a four-part symphony that would extol the glories of his native Bohemia and its Czech people. Only after the initial success of its opening movements, each premiered separately, did he decide to “complete” the work by adding two final sections, for a total of six symphonic poems. The entire series was first performed together as a cycle on November 5, 1882. Since 1952, it has been the traditional opening concert for the “Prague Spring Festival,” performed annually on the anniversary of Smetana’s death each May 12th. As with Beethoven, Smetana’s deafness did not end his creative efforts — most of Má Vlast was penned in newfound silence. But whereas Beethoven’s hearing faded gradually over a number of years, and left him with small amounts of aural sensation, Smetana’s came on later in life, very suddenly, and quite completely. Deafness, in fact, removed him so quickly and entirely from the world he thought he knew that only music kept him sane — and only for a while. In a matter of weeks, from mid-summer into September 1874, Smetana’s hearing faded quickly and almost totally. Of necessity, he was forced to resign his administrative and conducting duties at the opera. And perhaps largely to confront his rushing deafness, Smetana began heated work on the symphonic poems he had been thinking about for several years, completing first the sketches for Vyšehrad (Part One) he had created two years earlier and then composing all of The Moldau during three weeks in November. In January 1875, he continued with the third part, Šárka, About the Music


which he finished by the end of February. He intended, at this point, to create a four-part cycle of poems not unlike a traditional four-movement symphony, with the fourth depicting “Czech life in song and dance.” This became From Bohemia’s Forests and Fields [“Z českých luhů a hájů” in the original Czech]. Part Two: THE MOLDAU [Vltava]

The main musical theme of The Moldau is today a popular Czech folksong. It was not, however, a Czech song when Smetana borrowed it. Smetana had, in fact, often voiced violent opposition to the idea of adopting true folksong melodies into the national musical language he was trying to create. His borrowing, in this case, reached quite far geographically, when he adapted (perhaps subconsciously) a folk melody he had heard while teaching for a number of years in Sweden as a young man. (Dvořák crossed much the same path and controversy with some of the adapted borrowings within his “New World” Symphony.) Smetana’s words about this tone poem clearly lay out the river’s migration from mountain spring through Bohemia toward the sea: “Two springs pour forth in the shade of the Bohemian Forest, one warm and gushing, the other cold and peaceful. Their waves flow quickly over rocky beds, joining together and glistening in the morning sun. The forest brook, hastening on, becomes the river Moldau. Coursing through Bohemia’s valleys, it grows into a mighty stream. Through thick woods it flows, as the triumphant sounds of the hunt and the notes of hunters’ horns are heard ever nearer. It flows through grass-grown pastures and lowlands where a wedding feast is being celebrated in song and dance. At night, wood and water nymphs revel in its sparkling waves. Reflected on its surface are fortresses and castles — witnesses to bygone days of knightly splendor and the vanished glory of fighting times. At the St. John Rapids, the stream races ahead, winding through the cataracts, hewing out a path with its foaming waves through the rocky chasm into the broad riverbed — finally, flowing on in majestic peace toward Prague and welcomed by the time-honored castle Vyšehrad [Smetana encores the castle’s musical motif from the first tone poem of the cycle]. Then it vanishes beyond our gaze.” A personal note: I have vivid memories from childhood of waking on Sunday mornings to hear the swift-running current of the River Moldau flowing mightily past my bedroom door. It was Smetana’s music, of course, from an oft-played re-

cording (by The Cleveland Orchestra) cherished by my father. He often chose to wake us on Sundays by playing music — of a vastly eclectic range. But the watery sounds of the Moldau were among my favorite, both for the realism of the river itself and for the long, over-arching crescendo that turns little stream (barely awake) into mighty river (time for breakfast). Part Four: FROM BOHEMIA’S FORESTS AND FIELDS

In From Bohemia’s Forests and Fields, after painting portraits in the first movements of the country’s greatest fortress, its national river, and one of its fiercest historical heroes, Smetana wrote a musical ode to the common countryside filled with average villages, verdant greenery, and everyday beauty. Of this music, Smetana wrote: “This symphonic poem broadly characterizes the thoughts and feelings that well within us as we survey the Bohemian landscape. From every direction, fervent song comes to our ears; every grove and all the flowered meadows sing their melodies, both cheerful and melancholy. All have something to say: the deep, dark forests (horn solos) and the sunny, fertile plains along the Elbe River, and all the other parts of the rich and beautiful land of Bohemia.” While not as specifically programmatic as other parts of the cycle, this finelyetched tone painting evokes some of the feelings that nature can inspire and, like Beethoven’s Sixth Symphony, is difficult to resist in its at times gentle sincerity. Epilog: MÁ VLAST

The success of his first four parts encouraged Smetana to write two more, creating a total of six movements to Má Vlast. These were first performed as a cycle in November 1882, to great acclaim and rejoicing. The two movements being presented at this morning’s Cleveland Orchestra concert provide a clear and pleasing view of Smetana’s love for his country — and his enduring ability to paint Czech themes in music. —Eric Sellen © 2013

Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Smetana first talked about writing a musical work depicting the river Moldau in 1867. Five years later, he made some sketches related to two “symphonic poems,” one about the river and one about the fortress Vyšehrad. He completed these two in 1874, after suffering profound hearing loss that summer. He wrote Šárka in early 1875, and the fourth poem, From Bohemia’s Forests and Fields, later that year. Each piece was premiered separately in Prague, between March 1875 and March 1877. Smetana created two additional movements for the cycle in 1878-79; they were then premiered in 1880. The entire Má Vlast was first performed together on November 5, 1882. Parts Two and Four — The Moldau and From Bohemia’s Forests and Fields — together run about 20 minutes in performances. Smetana scored them for an orchestra of 2 flutes and piccolo, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangle, cymbals, bass drum), harp (in The Moldau), and strings.

Piano Concerto No. 2 in G major, Opus 44 composed 1879-80


Pyotr Ilyich

Severance Hall 2012-13

W I T H I T S U N F O R G E T T A B L E opening theme and the piano’s widespread chords, Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto is always going to remain a favorite concert piece for those who love the eternal battle between a full symphony orchestra and the mighty concert grand. But his Second Piano Concerto should not be overlooked, not least because Tchaikovsky himself was very fond of it and because it displays the same richness of themes and barnstorming virtuosity that we expect from his best works. It is typically Russian in its brazen emotional quality and its determination to extract every last ounce from the eighty-eight black and white keys — and the pianist’s mere ten fingers. It comes, too, from a fertile period of the composer’s life. The disaster of Tchaikovsky’s marriage in 1877 brought on the extraordinary combination of nervous collapse and inspirational fecundity. Some of his best music came out of those anxiety-ridden months, while he moved from city to city in restless agitation. From then onward, he would never spend much time at home in Moscow without longing to be away in the country, or away out of the country, in Paris or Switzerland or Rome. The opera Eugene Onegin, the Fourth Symphony, and the Violin Concerto were all composed in these extraordinary circumstances, all masterpieces of undying appeal. The Second Piano Concerto followed soon after, in the autumn of 1879, also written on the move, as it were, as he packed his bags and left Moscow for his sister’s home in Kamenka, then Paris, then Rome, then St. Petersburg. Tchaikovsky had given up teaching at the Moscow Conservatory, which he had never really enjoyed, and having just completed his opera The Maid of Orleans had promised himself a rest. But he was never able to suppress the urge to work and would rise early in the morning, wherever he happened to be, and sit at his desk pouring delicious cascades of notes onto paper. As was usually the case, Tchaikovsky felt very pleased with the work as it took shape and pronounced himself completely satisfied when it was done. This pattern often took the form of him turning against a piece once it receded from the compositional moment, entered the process of performance and publication, and faced the hurdle of public criticism. He was very

severe on the Fourth Symphony, for example, sometime after it was composed. In the case of the Second Piano Concerto, however, he went on liking it and stood up in its defense when one of his students, Alexander Siloti, proposed some cuts and adjustments. Siloti was one of the many great Russian pianists who came out of the Moscow Conservatory under the guidance of its founder and director, Nikolai Rubinstein. Rubinstein was a good friend to Tchaikovsky, had given him his first job and taken him into his house. Rubinstein was also, like his brother Anton, one of the great piano virtuosos of the 19th century. Rubinstein is part of the story of the Second Piano Concerto, because he had reacted very curtly to the First Piano Concerto and refused to play it, to Tchaikovsky’s dismay. The friendship remained intact, however, and the composer hoped that this time Rubinstein would not only like the new concerto but play it. If anything, the Second Concerto is harder for the soloist than the First. The hope was never put to the test, for Rubinstein died at the age of 45 in Paris early in 1881. Tchaikovsky still dedicated the score to him, and Tchaikovsky’s next work, an immense piano trio, was dedicated to his memory. The first performance of the Second Piano Concerto was given in November 1881 in New York, thanks to the enterprising programming of the conductor Theodore Thomas, always alert to the latest music coming from Europe and Russia. He conducted the performance with the German-trained English pianist Madeline Schiller, obviously the possessor of a formidable technique. The first performance in Moscow was given by another brilliant Moscow pianist, Sergei Taneyev, in May 1882. THE MUSIC

Of the concerto’s three sections, the first movement is much the longest, thanks to a number of episodes where the pianist expands on a theme at considerable length while the orchestra looks on. Sometimes these passages are close to being free cadenzas. The range of themes and keys is wide, and silences often mark the points where episodes begin and end — a habit which made Tchaikovsky confess that he could never really disguise the seams in the fabric of his music. His unique gift for building tension by pushing the upper voices higher and higher, often with the bass notes going in the opposite direction, is particularly well displayed in this movement. After a somber opening, the slow second movement, Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Tchaikovsky wrote his Piano Concerto No. 2 in 1879-80. It was first performed on November 12, 1881, in New York City, with Theodore Thomas conducting the New York Philharmonic, with Madeline Schiller at the piano. The composer dedicated the score to Nikolai Rubinstein. This concerto runs about 30-35 minutes in performance. Tchaikovsky scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The edition used for this week’s concerts is a version edited by Alexander Siloti, which shortened some passages and sections from Tchaikovsky’s original. The Cleveland Orchestra first played Tchaikovsky’s Second Piano Concerto in February 1968, when Louis Lane led performances with soloist Gary Graffman, at Severance Hall and at Oberlin College and Marshall University. The Orchestra has presented this concerto on only three subsequent programs, at concerts at Severance Hall in January and February 1991 and as part of the 1972 and 1993 Blossom Festivals.


in which the winds play little part, brings forward a solo violin and a solo cello, making a chamber music unit of very satisfying character (although some of this has been shortened in the score edition by Alexander Siloti being performed on this weekend’s Cleveland Orchestra concerts). As always, Tchaikovsky’s melodic gift is exhibited to the full, yet the ending feels somewhat disturbed, with a lone trumpet entering as if from afar. The third movement finale is a knuckle-buster for the pianist, who is given almost no rest. The tunes pour out and the excitement builds at the end in the same manner as in the First Piano Concerto. (Surely Nikolai Rubinstein would have found this music hard to resist.) EPILOG

In the last year of his life, Tchaikovsky embarked on a third piano concerto, but was unhappy with it after completing only one movement. Its history is entangled with ideas for another symphony, sometimes referred to as the mythical “Seventh,” which was also left in sketch form. Attempts to reconstruct both symphony and concerto founder on material that Tchaikovsky himself obviously felt unhappy about, so that most modern performances of the “next concerto” have to settle for one movement only. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013 Hugh Macdonald is Avis H.

Garrick Ohlsson Since winning the 1970 Chopin International Piano Competition, American pianist Garrick Ohlsson has established himself worldwide as a musician of interpretive and technical prowess. He made his Cleveland Orchestra debut in March 1975, and most recently appeared with the Orchestra in October 2010. A native of White Plains, New York, Garrick Ohlsson began piano studies at age 8, attended the Westchester Conservatory of Music, and at 13 entered the Juilliard School. His teachers include Claudio Arrau, Olga Barabini, Sascha Gorodnitzki, Rosina Lhévinne, Tom Lishman, and Irma Wolpe. Among Mr. Ohlsson’s honors are first prizes at the 1966 Busoni Competition and 1968 Montreal Piano Competition, the 1994 Avery Fisher Prize, and the 1998 University Musical Society Distinguished Artist Award in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Regarded as a leading exponent of Chopin, Mr. Ohlsson performed in celebrations of the bicentenary of Chopin’s birthday in 2010, including a gala concert at Chopin’s birth house in Warsaw and all-Chopin recitals in Berkeley, La Jolla, New York, and Seattle. For the bicentenary of Franz Liszt’s birth last season, Garrick Ohlsson played recitals in Chicago, Hong Kong, London, and New York. Garrick Ohlsson commands a repertoire of some eighty concertos. He has appeared as soloist with orchestras throughout the world, including the Deutsche Symphony Berlin, Czech Philharmonic, Halle Orchestra, Russian National Orchestra, Salzburg Mozarteum, Sydney Symphony, and Warsaw Philharmonic, among many others. In recent seasons, his engagements in this country have included concerts with the orchestras of Atlanta, Baltimore, Boston, Dallas, Houston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and San Francisco. In recital, Mr. Ohlsson has presented the music of Scriabin and the composer’s Russian contemporaries in the United States and Europe, and the complete Beethoven piano sonatas at the Ravinia, Tanglewood, and Verbier festivals. As a chamber musician, Garrick Ohlsson’s performances have included collaborations with the Cleveland, Emerson, Takács, and Tokyo string quartets. Along with violinist Jorja Fleezanis and cellist Michael Grebanier, Mr. Ohlsson is a founding member of the San Francisco-based FOG Trio. A prolific recording artist, Garrick Ohlsson can be heard on the Angel, Arabesque, BMG, Delos, Hänssler, Hyperion, Nonesuch, RCA Victor Red Seal, Telarc, and Virgin Classics labels. One of his ten Bridge Records recordings of the complete Beethoven sonatas was granted a Grammy Award.

Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Opus 93 composed 1948-53 S H O S TA KO V I C H



SHOSTAKOVICH born September 25, 1906 St. Petersburg (later Leningrad) died August 9, 1975 Moscow

Severance Hall 2012-13

made it known publicly that he composed the great Tenth Symphony in the months following Stalin’s death, which took place on March 5, 1953 (the same day as Prokofiev’s death). It is clear to us now, however, and was probably clear to many of his friends then, that he had been working on the symphony for several years — and that it was written under the shadow of events in January 1948 when Andrei Zhdanov, the politburo member with responsibility for the arts, led a purge on Soviet musicians, with Shostakovich as the main target. An important group of composers, which included both Shostakovich and Prokofiev, were singled out for their sins against the ideals of Soviet music and in particular for “formalism,” the recurrent catch-all accusation that had been heard in official pronouncements throughout the Stalinist era. Of course all music is formal, and so, in a sense, it must also be “formalist.” In this case, the State required music to serve a political purpose, and that could only be done with words or a message conveyed in song or on screen or even with just an appropriate title. “Symphony” or “Concerto” or “String Quartet” were vague and inadequate titles for the purpose — and thus open to condemnation not simply for not supporting the official line but actually for subverting it. At the moment when the purge occurred, Shostakovich was engaged in composing a violin concerto written in admiration of the playing of David Oistrakh. He continued writing the concerto, but only in secret, and it could not be performed. Shostakovich turned to film music and choral works instead, as his sole means of retaining recognition as a composer. But in private, he was also working on string quartets and on a successor to the Ninth Symphony of 1945. Sketches for the Tenth in fact go back as early as 1946, and there is evidence that he was working on it in 1951. The year 1953 — and Stalin’s death — thus released the backlog of music that had been waiting to be brought out in public. The Violin Concerto was not ready until 1955, but the Fourth and Fifth String Quartets were heard toward the end of 1953, along with the Tenth Symphony, presented on December 17 by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra under Shostakovich’s leading interpreter of the day, Yevgeny Mravinsky. The Tenth About the Music


was soon acclaimed in the West as one of the composer’s major works. International recognition of Shostakovich as a leading living composer dated back to his First Symphony in 1925, but Shostakovich’s standing across the West was reenforced by new works in the 1950s and for the last twenty years of his life. His writing was widely appreciated as a counterblast to the craze for serial and atonal music that gripped many young composers, especially in the United States. Interpreting the Tenth Symphony, as with any work by Shostakovich, presents immense problems. From his many years grappling with officialdom, he had learned to dissemble and mask his true feelings about what he created. In addition, he was a very private, not to say inscrutable, individual. All these circumstances allow us to adopt almost any view of his work, but without any certainty that our view will coincide with his. The layers of irony are deep. What seem to be depictions of misery or horror may be nothing of the kind. The hollow hymns of triumph may not be hollow. He was indeed a “formalist” composer, deeply concerned with the structure and shape of his music, always looking for new ways to insert contrast or its opposite, hinting at references that may be decoys, and extracting veins of gold from the traditional large orchestra.

At a Glance Shostakovich composed his Tenth Symphony during the summer and autumn of 1953, although some thematic material may date from the previous two years. It was premiered in Leningrad on December 17, 1953, by the Leningrad Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yevgeny Mravinsky. The first United States performance took place on October 14, 1954, with the New York Philharmonic under Dimitri Mitropoulos’s direction. This symphony runs just over 50 minutes in performance. Shostakovich scored it for 3 flutes (second and third doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (third doubling english horn), 3 clarinets (third doubling bass clarinet), 3 bassoons (third doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (snare drum, bass drum, cymbals, tam-tam, triangle, tambourine, xylophone), and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony in December 1967 under David Oistrakh’s direction. The most recent performances were given as part of the 2011 Blossom Music Festival, led by David Afkham, and in November 2007 at Severance Hall, under the baton of Pinchas Steinberg.


the whole symphony) to the leading woodwinds. A clarinet, for example, is the first to join the strings’ opening meditations, and a low flute is the first to present an important new theme later on. Two lonely piccolos are heard at the close. The music is in no hurry. Twice the music rises to fearsome climaxes, fed on the frightening rap of the snare drum and the weight of the full brass. The raw energy of the second movement is unrivaled in 20th-century music, like a runaway train. Is it exultation or fury? It’s hard to say. Over the wild gambols of the rest, the brass occasionally stamp out what sounds like an Orthodox Russian chant. What can that mean? The relaxed air of the third movement is more than welcome, and it becomes more personal when Shostakovich gradually hones in on his personal signature, the D-S-C-H motif that permeated a number of his later works. This was created from the way his name is spelled in German, as Dmitrij SCHostakowitsch, and the fact that in German the note of E-flat is “Es” (and thus S) and B-natural is H:

Another prominent tune that keeps recurring on the horn seems planets away from the tone and color of the movement. This too has been shown to have an explanation as ELMIRA, the name of one of his female students, although, as before, the significance of her intrusion in the symphony is a mystery:

The movement concludes with what sounds like a corny brass band playing loose with D-S-C-H, as if in mockery. Before the true finale begins, there is a thoughtful introduction featuring oboe and bassoon and casting a veil of mystery. This is dispelled in the exuberant fourth movement Allegro, whose climax is a triumphant writing-on-the-wall of the letters D-S-C-H. Triumph or cataclysm? It could be either. It is certainly an exhilarating musical experience whatever we read into its meaning. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013 About the Music

Education & Community




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 instruments for the El Sistema@Rainey program, with instrument support from Royalton Music for El Sistema@Rainey Summer Camp.

Through the PNC Musical Rainbows series at Severance Hall, Cleveland Orchestra musicians introduce nearly 10,000 preschoolers each year to the instruments of the orchestra.

Student Ticket Programs “Under 18s Free,” Student Advantage membership, and Student Frequent FanCard offer affordable access to Cleveland Orchestra concerts all season long The Cleveland Orchestra is committed to developing one of the youngest audiences of any orchestra in the country. With the help of generous contributors, the Orchestra has expanded its discounted ticket offerings through several new programs. In the opening two months of the current Severance Hall season, student attendance has doubled from last season, with nearly 20% of the audience being students experiencing Cleveland Orchestra concerts through these various programs and offers. S T U D E N T A DVA N TAG E P R O G R A M

The Orchestra’s ongoing Student Advantage Program provides opportunities for students to attend Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall through discounted ticket offers. Membership in the Student Advantage Program is free. A new Student Frequent FanCard was introduced this season. Priced at $50, the FanCard offers students unlimited single tickets (one per FanCard holder) to weekly Classical Subscription Concerts all season long. “UNDER 18s FREE”

Introduced for Blossom Festival concerts two summers ago, the “Under 18s Free” program now includes select Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall each season. This program offers free tickets (one per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people ages 7-17 to the Orchestra’s Fridays@7, Friday Morning at 11, and Sunday Afternoon at 3 concerts. All of these programs are supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences and the Alexander and Sarah Cutler Fund for Student Audiences.

Meet the Musicians


Meet Margaret Mitchell Cleveland Orchestra Heritage Society Co-Chair, member, and Heritage Society ambassador on WCLV How many years have you been attending Orchestra concerts? Bill and I have been going to Orchestra concerts ever since we were married and came to Cleveland — sixty years. We spent many family summer evenings at Blossom when our children were young. Your favorite composer? I really love the ability of the Orchestra to play any music well, so I have to say I like whatever the Orchestra plays. But Mahler and Bruckner are classical favorites; Ives and Adams, among more recent composers. Your most memorable concerts? Because of the different venues, Dvořák’s “New World” Symphony in old Lucerne; Shostakovich in Miami. Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony — the final movement encore in the Canary Islands. It’s difficult to pick out a favorite at Severance. I love most all of them. And, in Margaret’s own words, from her WCLV invitation to Orchestra lovers everywhere . . . Bill and I think The Cleveland Orchestra makes Cleveland a great place to live. — the superb concerts. — the talented orchestra musicians who contribute much to our community and represent us so well around the world. — the education programs building future audiences. These are some of the reasons we created a planned gift, securing lifelong income for us. It also makes sense for the Orchestra, helping to build the endowment. We want The Cleveland Orchestra that we love to enrich the lives of our children and grandchildren as it has for us. With your own planned gift, please join us as proud members of the Heritage Society. For information on membership in the Heritage Society, contact Bridget Mundy, Legacy Giving Officer, by calling 216-231-8006 or via email at or go to and click on Support, then Heritage Society.

The Cleveland Orchestra






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.

11001 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44106



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.
