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.

MARTIN LUTHER KING JR. CELEBRATION. The Cleveland Orchestra’s Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert fills the stage with performers, featuring the volunteer Celebration Chorus assembled and prepared especially for this event. This year’s soldout concert on January 20 is the Orchestra’s 33nd annual presentation in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King’s life and legacy.

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.

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 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.”

Welser-Möst advocates for art and culture with keynote address in Vienna

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Sony Classical has announced the release of the newest edition of one of the world’s most famous classical music events — the Vienna Philharmonic’s annual New Year’s Concert from 2013. Franz Welser-Möst returned to direct the 2013 concert following the success of his debut in 2011. The live recording became available on January 4, exclusively at Arkiv Music and via Amazon.com’s CreateSpace’s Disc on Demand service as a CD, or as a download through all major digital service providers. The CD version is being released to other retailers on January 22, with the DVD version following in February. The New Year’s Concert of the Vienna Philharmonic is firmly established as one of the longest-standing and most prestigious music events worldwide. 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.

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Virtuosity, Song & Dance WHILE THE HEADLINER

for this week’s concerts is the internationally renowned American violinist Joshua Bell, making a welcome return to Severance Hall, the star of any orchestral concert is the music itself. And this week Franz Welser-Möst has chosen three pieces (just two on Friday evening) of very different character, written across a timespan of two centuries. Beethoven’s immense — and immensely beautiful — Violin Concerto is today considered among the greatest such works ever written. It was not always so, however, and generated puzzlement and ho-hum reactions at its premiere in 1806. Its length, which we may find heavenly today, was longer than early 19th-century expectations. Even its beguiling melodies did not ensure its success, which happened gradually over several decades, as one violinist after another found its beauty and brought it to the public’s attention again and again. Béla Bartók’s Dance Suite, written more than a century later in 1923, offers an interesting mix of traditional Hungarian rhythms and folksong ideas, recaptured into an early 20th-century orchestral idiom. Not actually intended for dancing, the suite is instead a musical synthesis “about” some of the composer’s favorite dance types. Opening the concerts on Thursday and Saturday evenings is a very new work by the German composer Jörg Widmann, who served as The Cleveland Orchestra’s Lewis Young Composer Fellow 2009-11. In his Lied (the German word for “song”), he writes a 21st-century take on the art of the greatest classical German songwriter of all, Franz Schubert, in a modern idiom and pattern filled with surprises and intriguing ideas of musical flow. —Eric Sellen

THURSDAY AND SATURDAY

Lied [Song] (for orchestra) composed 2003-09

“Schubert’s music draws tears from the eyes without questioning the soul, so direct and actual is its effect. We weep without knowing why, because we have not come close to the promise of the music.” —Theodor W. Adorno, writing about Franz Schubert

by

Jörg

WIDMANN born June 19, 1973 Munich now living in Freiburg

Severance Hall 2012-13

Lied [pronounced leed], or “Song,” for orchestra, was commissioned by the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra. The following commentary was written for the world premiere performances in 2003: O F T H E O R I G I N of his commissioned work in homage to Franz Schubert, Jörg Widmann was very clear — Schubert’s melody should be at the heart of his work. “Schubert is a melodic genius,” says Widmann. Nothing in Schubert’s work has fascinated him more than the composer’s ability to invent and shape his melodies and carry them forward, melodies that are not simply beautiful but also have the capacity to captivate the listener with their great intensity. Widmann’s original idea for the piece was to write a monodic orchestral work, which would treat the orchestra as a single singing agent in which “all the instruments sing a kind of eternal melody without cease.” Widmann planned, in other words, an orchestral piece that would “present its lines naked and uncovered, unprotected and without a safety net, as if one were to perform a Schubert song without the accompaniment.” This idea is embodied in Widmann’s Lied for orchestra, yet he drew away from his original idea when he decided to insert in the single-voice sections passages that vary from single lines to polyphonic [multiple] lines. This was achieved by juxtaposing harmonic and timbral levels, leading to passages in the work that regularly threaten to break apart when two layers are in apparently unreconcilable opposition. In the foreground is the melodic line, often marked at “very very very loud” (triple forte), laden with expression; behind it is a harmonic background, sometimes so soft as to be almost inaudible, creating a sinister and pale counterpoint. What thus found its way into Widmann’s composition About the Music

was the typical character of Schubert’s musical language as “seeking,” or harmonic “wandering,” which then goes constantly astray and still must keep on going. This happens when sounds are unresolved and lead in some other unexpected direction. Of course, for Widmann this sense of being lost is actually what is specifically modern about Schubert. He wanted to avoid direct references to particular Schubert works, but he also acknowledges that the String Quintet and the Octet influenced his work, if only in small details. The result, Lied, is a work that draws on the special atmosphere and emotionality of Schubert’s music, sharing Schubert’s central compositional technique, yet at the same time is charged with Widmann’s own expressive personality. — Torsten Blaich

About the Composer J Ö R G W I D M A N N served as The Cleveland Orchestra’s Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer 2009-11. He was born in Munich in June 1973, and studied clarinet with Gerd Starke at the Hochschule für Musik in Munich and later (1994-1995) with Charles Neidich at the Juilliard School in New York. He began taking composition lessons with Kay Westermann at the age of eleven and subsequently continued his studies with Wilfried Hiller and Hans Werner Henze (1994-1996) and later with Heiner Goebbels and Wolfgang Rihm in Karlsruhe (1997-1999). In 2001, Jörg Widmann was appointed as the successor to Dieter Klöcker as professor of clarinet at the Freiburg Staatliche Hochschule für Musik. He became a professor of composition there in 2009. A series of string quartets, written between 1997 and 2005, form one core of Widmann’s creative output. The five string quartets are intended as a large cycle, with each individual work following a traditional form or setting. Widmann has also composed a trilogy of works for large orchestra in which he studied the transformation of vocal forms for instrumental forces: Lied (2003-09), Chor (2004), and Messe (2005). In 2007, Christian Tetzlaff and the Junge Deutsche Philharmonie gave the premiere of Widmann’s first Violin Concerto. The same year, Pierre Boulez and the Vienna Philharmonic gave the first performance of Armonica for orchestra, in which Widmann combined the tonal colors of a glass harmonica with orchestra to produce a Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Widmann wrote his Lied [Song] for orchestra as a commission from the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra. Its world premiere was presented on December 10, 2003, conducted by Jonathan Nott. The composer later revised the score. The revised version was first performed on April 23, 2010, in London, by the BBC Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Lawrence Renes. This work runs nearly 30 minutes in performance. Widmann scored it for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 3 clarinets, 2 bassoons (second doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, percussion (vibraphone, cymbals, tamtam, crotales), harp, accordion, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this work for the first time with this weekend’s concerts.

homogenously breathing body of sounds and sound effects. This was followed by Con brio, an homage to Beethoven. Widmann’s new concerto for flute, titled Flûte en suite, was premiered by The Cleveland Orchestra and principal flute Joshua Smith in May 2011. Widmann has also created musical theater works, including the opera Das Gesicht im Spiegel, which was chosen by the German magazine Opernwelt as the most significant first performance of the 2003-04 season. Am Anfang (2009) was the result of a unique collaboration between a visual artist and a composer; Widmann created the work together with the German painter and sculptor Anselm Kiefer and conducted the world premiere for the 20th anniversary of the Opéra Bastille in Paris. His most recent work is a music-drama called Babylon for the Munich State Opera. Widmann’s great passion as a clarinetist is chamber music. He regularly performs with partners such as Tabea Zimmermann, Heinz Holliger, András Schiff, Kim Kashkashian, and Hélène Grimaud. He has also performed widely as a soloist in orchestral concerts. Several works have been dedicated to Widmann by fellow composers. He performed the premiere of Music for Clarinet and Orchestra by Wolfgang Rihm in 1999. In 2006, he performed Cantus by Aribert Reimann and, in 2009, at the Lucerne Festival, the world premiere of Rechant by Heinz Holliger. In addition to his fellowship as The Cleveland Orchestra’s Lewis Young Composer, Jörg Widmann has served as composer-in-residence with the Berlin German Symphony Orchestra, Salzburg Festival, Lucerne Festival, Cologne Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Vienna Konzerthaus.

About the Composer

The Cleveland Orchestra


Dance Suite composed 1923 IN THE 1920s,

by

Béla

BARTÓK born March 25, 1881 Nagyszentmiklós, Hungary died September 26, 1945 New York

Severance Hall 2012-13

Bartók’s music reached a peak of modernity and dissonance, from which he retreated in his later years, and which bestowed on him, in the years between the two world wars, a reputation for aggressive ugliness that neither Arnold Schoenberg nor Igor Stravinsky ever matched. With hindsight, we can understand that the horrified critics of the time were faced with sounds they had never expected to hear in their lives, but also that this music is far from ugly or formless. It may not display the beautiful lines we love in Mozart and Schubert, but it is full of lyrical feeling, of youthful energy, of highly inventive rhythms and harmonies, and it has a shapeliness that can quite reasonably be seen to be a legacy from the classical masters. The two violin sonatas, which most clearly exhibit this extreme style, were followed in 1923 by a work that reached in a different direction and won the hearts of the public. This was the Dance Suite, composed to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the formal linking of the two capitals of Hungary, Buda and Pest, into a single city. Kodály’s Psalmus hungaricus was commissioned for the same occasion, and the senior Hungarian composer, Ernö Dohnányi (grandfather of Christoph von Dohnányi, The Cleveland Orchestra’s music director laureate) conducted both works in a festival in November 1923. Bartók’s name was rapidly getting better known outside of Hungary in those years, partly through the exertions of his publisher, Universal Edition of Vienna, and partly as a result of a much publicized performance, under Václav Talich, at the Prague ISCM orchestral festival in May 1925, which catapulted Bartók’s work onto the international stage. Over the following two years the Dance Suite received over sixty performances in major European and American centers. Bartók regarded himself equally as an ethnographer and as a composer, for he had devoted much of his life up to this point to the study of folk music from many regions of Eastern Europe and even Turkey and North Africa. He assembled many thousands of tunes and devoted long hours to cataloging and analyzing them. Most of his works betray the influence of folksong and often include it in some form. The Dance Suite was a deliberate announcement of the composer’s dedication to the study of folksong and of his creative approach in turning this About the Music

resource into modern orchestral music. This is not music to dance to, however, even if dance movements lie at its origin. The melodies are recognizably ethnic, but the treatment is free in its orchestration and in Bartók’s fondness for varying the tempo with accelerations and the opposite, with interruptions and combinations, all of which proclaim a highly sophisticated musician handling raw materials in a way that never deprives them of their distinctive character. The six movements run continuously, the last being a finale that recalls snatches from the earlier dances. The fifth dance is the only one to maintain a regular 4/4 beat (almost) throughout. The rest make play with alternating time-signatures that break up the rhythms, create hiccups and insert a certain drama into the action. The first two movements illustrate the stop-go style very well, while the third is the liveliest and the most tuneful. The fourth dance is the only one to sustain a gentle pace, with dense string chords as background to wandering melodic phrases in the woodwinds. Most remarkable is Bartók’s gift for apt and pointed orchestration, whether in the intrusions of piano or celesta, or in the extreme ranges of the bassoon, or featuring animated trombones. And although the tunes are not strictly his invention, he composes for them as if they were. In so many ways, the Dance Suite was the perfect answer to all those who despaired of modern music and lamented that it could never be tuneful. —Hugh Macdonald 2013 ©

At a Glance Bartók wrote his Dance Suite in 1923. It was premiered on November 19, 1923, in a concert commemorating the 50th anniversary of the combining of Buda and Pest into the capital city of Budapest. The premiere was conducted by Ernö Dohnányi. This suite runs just over 15 minutes in performance. Bartók scored it for 2 flutes (both doubling piccolos), 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets (second doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons (second doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangle, bell, tambourines, bass drum, cymbals, tamtam), celesta, harp, piano, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Bartók’s Dance Suite in November 1966, conducted by Max Rudolf. It was most recently presented in April 2003, in concerts led by David Robertson.

Violin Concerto in D major, Opus 61 composed 1806 T H E FO U R D R U M TA P S

by

Ludwig van

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

Severance Hall 2012-13

that open Beethoven’s Violin Concerto are one of the most surprising and audacious ideas that the composer ever committed to paper. What was he thinking? Is this an echo of the military music that emanated from the French Revolution — and which was to be heard all over Vienna in those warlike years? Is it an easy way to set the tempo, like those audible 1-2-3-4 counts that jazz musicians rely on? Is it a suggestion of menace or coming thunder? Is it a way to attract the audience’s attention? Or is it a tune? This concerto is so familiar to so many of us that it’s no longer easy to imagine the shock waves those four notes should have set off at its first performance in 1806. Perhaps the audience was too noisy to allow anyone to hear them clearly. Perhaps the Viennese were already used to Beethoven’s eccentricities and regarded this as just another of his strange ways. Critics at the time barely noticed the oddity of such an opening. Instead, they complained about the concerto’s length and repetitiousness, and mostly expressed the view that things would be better if Beethoven reined himself in a little and stuck to the agreeable style he had perfected in his first two symphonies. No one was yet ready to bask in the work’s beautifully melodic and elegant writing for the violin, or appreciate the spacious symphonic breadth of the first movement, let alone declare this to be the finest violin concerto anyone had ever heard. In fact, this concerto came into the world with very little fanfare and made little impression on the Viennese or anyone else. Not for some fift y years was it treated as the great work we now know it to be, when Joseph Joachim, Ferdinand David, Henri Vieuxtemps, and other virtuosi began to play it everywhere. In the 1870s, a crop of fine concertos appeared — by Brahms, Lalo, Tchaikovsky, and Bruch — all more or less in homage to Beethoven’s concerto and most of them in the same key of D major. Beethoven may have had no knowledge of Mozart’s five early violin concertos. Instead, Beethoven’s models were mostly French, in the concertos of Viotti, Kreutzer, and Rode, all working in Paris. He may have known Louis Spohr’s concertos, and he certainly knew a D-major concerto by Franz Clement, a young Viennese violinist who had played it in a concert in About the Music

1805 at which Beethoven had presented his Symphony No. 3, the “Eroica.” Beethoven’s own concerto was written “par Clemenza pour Clement” in the autograph score, and the dedicatee gave the first performance in December 1806, an event colored by the anecdote that he was sight-reading from Beethoven’s messy manuscript and by the program’s inclusion of a sonata to be played by Clement on a single string and “mit umgekehrten Violin” — with the instrument upside-down. What makes Beethoven’s concerto different from all the other violin concertos of his time is its enormously enlarged sense of space. With four symphonies behind him, he now thought instinctively in the extended paragraphs of symphonic structure and was able to create a broad horizon within which his themes can be extended in leisurely fashion and adorned by graceful elaborations from the soloist. For the four drum taps are a theme, or at least a crucial part of a theme, to be taken up by the soloist and the orchestra at various points, sometimes soft, as at the opening, sometimes brutally loud, and always highly distinctive. The other themes are elegant, often built out of rising or falling scales and usually moving in stepwise motion, avoiding wide intervals and sustaining a calm dignity. Since Beethoven left no cadenzas for this concerto, violinists have been writing their own for two centuries. Spohr, Joachim, Vieuxtemps, Eugène Ysaÿe, Fritz Kreisler, Jascha Heifetz, and dozens of others have published their own versions, and some more recent cadenzas break with convention by quoting from other concertos or indulging in modernisms such as quartertones written in the cracks between notes within Beethoven’s own tonal scale. All three movements offer opportunities for cadenzas, the one at the end of the slow movement acting as a link to the rondo finale. For his concerts with The Cleveland orchestra, Joshua Bell is performing his own cadenzas. The slow movement is a group of variations on a theme, ten measures long, of surpassing simplicity and beauty. First played by the strings alone, the theme passes to the horns and clarinet, then to the bassoon, then back to the strings with strong woodwind punctuation. The soloist, who has offered only decoration up to this point, then introduces a second theme, even more serene than the first, which acts as an interlude before the next variation, marked by pizzicato strings. Perhaps Beethoven was thinking of Haydn, who also liked to leaven his variations sets with secondary themes. This second Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Beethoven wrote his Violin Concerto in 1806 for Franz Clement, who was the soloist in the first performance on December 23, 1806, in Vienna. The score was published in 1808 with a dedication to Beethoven’s childhood friend Stephan von Breuning. This concerto runs about 45 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for flute, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings, plus solo violin. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Beethoven’s Violin Concerto in January 1920, when the 19-year-old Jascha Heifetz appeared as the soloist, with Nikolai Sokoloff conducting. Since that time, the concerto has been presented by the Orchestra quite frequently, performed with many of the world’s greatest violin soloists. The Orchestra included it in a series of tour concerts in April 2012 with violinist Nikolaj Znaider in the western United States, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst. It was last played at Severance Hall in November 2008, with Christian Tetzlaff as soloist and conductor Paavo Järvi. It was last presented at Blossom in 2012, with soloist Gil Shaham and Jahja Ling.

theme returns, accompanied now by the winds. The movement has remained firmly in its home key of G major throughout, and just when another variation seems to be hinted at by the horns, a violent series of chords sets up the cadenza-link into the finale. The third-movement Rondo’s catchy theme releases a burst of energy and an inexhaustible flow of lively invention. The bassoon is favored in a minor-key episode that is heard, regrettably, only once. At the end, the coda plays with the theme like a kitten with a ball of wool — rounding the work off with a light touch quite at odds with the image of a surly, stormy composer that we too often take to be the real Beethoven. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

The Cleveland Orchestra


Joshua Bell American violinist Joshua Bell enchants audiences with his virtuosity, tone, and stage presence. He first performed with The Cleveland Orchestra in March 1985, and most recently returned in August 2002. The Bloomington, Indiana, native was an avid computer game player and competitive athlete. He began violin at age four, and by age 12, had become a serious musician, thanks to his teacher and mentor, Josef Gingold. At 14, Mr. Bell received national attention for his Philadelphia Orchestra debut. In 1989, he earned an artist diploma from Indiana University, where he is now a senior lecturer at the Jacobs School of Music. He has received the university’s Distinguished Alumni Service Award and the Indiana Governor’s Arts Award and been named an “Indiana Living Legend.” Equally at home as a soloist, chamber musician, recording artist, and orchestra leader, Joshua Bell appeared this past summer at the Aspen, Mostly Mozart, Ravinia, Salzburg, Saratoga, Tanglewood, and Verbier festivals. This season, he performs with the orchestras of Boston, Cincinnati, Detroit, Nashville, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, San Diego, San Francisco, and Seattle, tours South Africa, and performs in Europe with the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, of which he recently became music director. A champion of new music, Mr. Bell has premiered works by John Corigliano, Aaron Jay Kernis, Jay Greenberg, Edgar Meyer, and Behzad Ranjbaran. Mr. Bell is an exclusive Sony Classical recording artist. Since his first LP at age 18 on Decca, he has recorded more than 40 albums, including the soundtrack to The Red Violin. His first album conducting the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, in Beethoven’s Fourth and Seventh symphonies, is scheduled for release in February. Recently, Mr. Bell received the Paul Newman Award from Arts Horizons, the Huberman Award from Moment Magazine, and Seton Hall University’s Humanitarian Award. He was also named Instrumentalist of the Year by Musical America and has received both the Avery Fisher Career Grant and Prize. He serves on the artist committee of the Kennedy Center Honors and the New York Philharmonic board of directors. He appears by arrangement with IMG Artists. Joshua Bell performs on the 1713 Huberman Stradivarius violin and uses a late 18th-century French bow by François Tourte. For further information, visit www.joshuabell.com. Joshua Bell will sign compact discs after the concerts on Thursday and Saturday evenings in the Lerner Lobby at the Cleveland Orchestra Store on the ground floor of Severance Hall. A selection of his albums are available for sale through the Cleveland Orchestra Store.

The founding members of the Academy of Bluegrass in the Fields grew up playing bluegrass and folk music long before it was heard in fine concert halls played by world-famous performers such as Yo-Yo Ma or Joshua Bell. Before Trina Struble established herself as one of the finest harpists in the country, she was winning fiddle competitions in her native Colorado. Mark Dumm learned to play Foggy Mountain Breakdown long before he dreamed of playing A Night on Bald Mountain with The Cleveland Orchestra. Henry Peyrebrune anchors the group on guitar, just as he anchors the Orchestra as a member of the double bass section. With the addition of newest members Derek Zadinsky and Jeffrey Zehngut, the ensemble is extending itself beyond standard bluegrass classics to tackle work by contemporary composers including Edgar Meyer and Mark O’Connor. The Academy was formed informally as a fundraising group, and has played benefit concerts for a variety of organizations, including The Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Institute of Music, Heights Arts, Fieldstone Farm Therapeutic Riding Center, and the Women’s Committee of The Cleveland Orchestra. They have been featured on Dee Perry’s Around Noon on WCPN, and are always hoping to share the music they have always loved with people who might not know they love it . . . yet.

With a homebase gig in Midtown Manhattan, the Pedrito Martinez Group has its roots planted firmly in the Afro-Cuban rumba tradition and in the bata rhythms and vocal chants of the music of Yoruba and Santeria. In addition to Pedrito, the group includes Jhair Sala from Peru, Alvaro Benavides from Venezuela, and Araicne Trujillo from Cuba. Pedro Pablo “Pedrito” Martinez was born in Havana, Cuba, in 1973. He began his musical career at the age of 11, performing as vocalist and percussionist with such Cuban legends as Tata Guines and Munequitos de Matanzas. He was brought to Canada in 1998 by Jane Bunnett to tour with her group, Spirits of Havana. He decided to pursue his career by remaining in North America. Two years later, the annual Thelonious Monk Institute Competition showcased Afro-Latin hand drumming for the first time — Pedro entered and won first place. Since settling in New York City in 2000, Pedrito has performed, recorded, and/ or toured with a many artists, including Paquito D’Rivera, Brian Lynch, Steve Turre, Me’shell Ndege’Ocello, Arturo “Chico” O’Farrill, Cassandra Wilson, Sting (for his rainforest benefit with Elton John and Bruce Springsteen), Paul Simon, and Wynton Marsalis. He was featured in the documentary film on Cuban music, Calle 54, and his singing and percussion playing were featured in the 2011 animated feature Chico and Rita. Mr. Martínez was a founding member of the highly successful Afro-Cuban/AfroBeat band Yerba Buena, with which he recorded two albums and toured the world. Pedrito has lent his talents as a percussion player and vocalist to over one hundred recordings. These include six Grammy-nominated albums and one, a collaboration between Eddie Palmieri and Brian Lynch called “Simpatico,” that was awarded a Grammy. PMG has appeared at many festivals, including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Umbria Jazz Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, and the Red Sea Festival. The group has self-released two live albums recorded at their home gig in NYC. Plans are in the works for a studio album. To learn more, visit www.pedritomartinezmusic.com. Severance Hall 2012-13

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.

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.

Antonín Dvořák’s brief tenure in America in the 1890s was truly a spiritual and emotional journey. His experiences in the New World are revealed in the four expansive movements of the Ninth Symphony — featuring everything from the thrill of a wild new country and its varied peoples to intense longing for his beloved Czech homeland. Guest conductor Herbert Blomstedt opens the program with one of Mozart’s most popular and classically-refined symphonies. Sponsor: Jones Day

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Franz Welser-Möst, conductor Rebecca Nelsen, soprano Nicholas Phan, tenor Stephen Powell, baritone Cleveland Orchestra Chorus Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus

Carl Orff’s joyous Carmina Burana bursts forth like a boisterous street festival — filled with great music, marvelous mayhem, and delightful merriment. This modern-day Canterbury Tales comes complete with lusty hymns to springtime, animated drinking songs, and a swan’s anguishingly ironic farewell to life (on a barbecue spit!). The concert also features the world premiere of a new work by Sean Shepherd. Sponsor: KeyBank
