Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director February 2013 Many of you will have seen recent press coverage of this season’s record-breaking sales revenues and the growing presence of young audience members here at Severance Hall. The news is encouraging for the Orchestra and all of Northeast Ohio. The Plain Dealer’s front-page coverage noted that The Cleveland Orchestra “is seeing attendance and ticket revenue skyrocket, mostly as a result of new programs aimed at children and students.” In an editorial, Crain’s Cleveland Business wrote that the Orchestra “deserves bravos for the hard work it and its supporters have done to secure the future of this ensemble of skilled musicians, who together remain the city’s most visible global ambassadors.” These are important steps toward a bright future, and much of the credit belongs to the staff who work tirelessly in the service of our patrons and artists. This team of dedicated professionals works behind the scenes every day to ensure that what happens offstage matches the unsurpassed excellence of the music-making onstage. Staff members (listed on pages 60- 61 of this book) focus their energies to plan and produce, manage and market hundreds of performances, educational programs, and patron events annually. The planning begins years in advance. Every event — at home in Northeast Ohio and on the road — involves scores of decisions and details that begin to take shape at least three years in advance. This month, the final details are being set for the 2013 Blossom Music Festival and 2013-14 season at Severance Hall in preparation for next month’s season announcements. At the same time, the programming for 2014-15 is being discussed and decided, while conductors and soloists are being booked for 2015-16. For every rehearsal, performance, program, and event, Severance Hall and Blossom must be prepared to ensure an efficient and comfortable experience for the artists onstage and for you in the audience. From cleaning and climate control to program books and box office, from finance and food service to payroll and parking, every detail is important. And these days, as we diversify our activities in Northeast Ohio, staff members throughout the institution are coordinating an increasingly complex puzzle of programming, people, and partnerships. Fundraising is an essential part of the equation, requiring not only that we ask for your support, but that we earn your support, and that genuine and grateful thanks are extended to each and every donor. Simultaneously, the infrastructure of the institution must be attended to, including the maintenance and management of Severance Hall’s physical plant, of the organization’s computer systems, and the Orchestra’s array of equipment, instruments, and music library. The success of this season — and of future seasons in the months and years to come — is the result of hard work by many hands. I hope you will join me in expressing gratitude to all the dedicated staff members for everything they do, for helping to make The Cleveland Orchestra the very best right here in Northeast Ohio.

DRIVING THROUGH SEVERANCE HALL. When Severance Hall opened on February 5, 1931, the building featured a drivethrough for passenger drop-off and pick-up in operation in the 1930s. Later closed and used as restaurant space, the area became the Smith Lobby, with new restrooms and ticket office space, during the building renovations in 1999-2000.

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.

From the President This message from Musical Arts Association president Dennis W. LaBarre is reprinted from the Association’s recently published Annual Report. Here, Mr. LaBarre offers an overview of the progress that The Cleveland Orchestra is making in implementing changes for a stronger future, as a musical institution devoted to the citizens of Northeast Ohio who created it and have sustained it. The complete Annual Report can be read by visiting clevelandorchestra.com and clicking on the “Support the Orchestra” section.

A S I R E F L E C T on my first three years as president of the Musical Arts Association, I am moved by both institutional pride and extraordinary gratitude. I am proud of the continued artistic vibrancy of The Cleveland Orchestra. I am equally proud of the progress we are making to successfully evolve beyond a business model that is no longer sustainable, for us or for our peer orchestras. But most of all, I am grateful that our progress forward is based on a demonstrated recognition among all the constituencies that make up our institutional fabric that we are all in this together.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Despite the challenges ahead, I am confident about the future of The Cleveland Orchestra. We have an informed and engaged Board of Trustees who relentlessly are facing our challenges, and making steady increases in their fundraising participation and personal philanthropy. We have a staff that demonstrates tireless devotion to the institution’s goals, who are holding down expenses, implementing new innovations, achieving record operating margins, and aggressively supporting our fundraising activities. We have musicians who not only sustain the highest artistic standards, but have increasingly partnered with us in seeking outcomes that will help The Cleveland Orchestra thrive for years to come. We have a music director who inspires artistic excellence and also demonstrates a rare vision into all aspects of our activities in a manner not always found among those who hold similar positions. We are blessed with the continued devotion and genuine enthusiasm of the Orchestra’s many patrons and volunteers, and the ongoing generosity of our donors, for which we are most grateful.

We have developed and continue to evolve a ten-year plan based on transparent, rigorous analysis of the hard facts we currently face, rather than rely on historical wisdom as the basis for decisions. Most importantly, we have identified our challenges, financial and otherwise, while there is still time for remedy. We are earnestly CONTINUES

THE CLEVELAND ORC

We began a thorough, new analysis of the landscape faced by symphony orchestras in 2008. The backdrop for this effort was the economic distress that has become a “new normal” and the recognition of inevitable societal and demographic change affecting orchestras, including the aspects of those forces that were most impactful for our own circumstances. These industry-wide realities included structural and operating deficits, shrinking audiences, the challenging relationships between board/leadership and musicians, and the need for multi-year financial planning and investment capital for innovation.

implementing strategic goals to broaden the audiences and community we serve and benefit. This has brought a focus on broader community engagement across Northeast Ohio, to the importance of the entire concert experience, and to the influence of changing social patterns and technologies.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Of equal importance, we have developed a structure of financial disciplines geared to support a recapitalization of our institution, improve operating margins, and resist the temptation to satisfy near-term financial needs at the expense of long-term financial stability. The dedication of all constituencies to this objective is clearly reflected in our recently completed, successful and cooperative trade agreement negotiations.

A

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHE

Our year-on-year operating deficit shrank from $2.7 million in FY11 to $180,000 in FY12 — as a result of success in the special fundraising portion of our Sound for the Centennial Campaign. In order to continue on track for the future, we must succeed in sustaining this effort over the next three years while building our endowment. We are making progress toward eliminating concerns for future deficits, and we are a third of the way toward securing commitments for the Campaign’s overall endowment goals. Central to our vision, the justification for all these efforts begins with the musical experience. Here at Severance Hall and Blossom, in Miami and New York, and abroad in Vienna, Paris, and Salzburg, I have had many opportunities to experience The Cleveland Orchestra’s artistic ascendancy first-hand, and to revel in the musical gifts they share in each performance. This is an Orchestra worthy of the acclaim it receives and the pride it inspires. At the same time, the Orchestra is pursuing a variety of programs, from education and community initiatives to innovations such as Fridays@7 and expanded opera and ballet offerings. Coupled with strong audience development efforts, these initiatives are attracting new audiences that are younger than ever before. We are able to offer much only because of our community’s generosity — nearly 13,000 donors gave $17.3 million in FY12 annual support, in addition to endowment commitments to our comprehensive Campaign. We owe a debt of gratitude to the people of Northeast Ohio for such extraordinary generosity. We are proud to serve this community through our performances and education activities, and in doing so to contribute to the economic growth of our region and serve as a source of community pride. As one of the region’s most visible ambassadors, we proudly carry the Cleveland name everywhere we play. I am confident that together we are making steady progress toward long-term institutional and financial health, and toward the long-term sustainability of this great Orchestra for our great community.

cians, who together remain the city’s most visible global ambassadors.” Sales for the 2012-13 Severance Hall season, which runs from September through May, are already 24% ahead of last year at the same time. Current season ticket sales revenue is on track to achieve an all-time record of $7.6 million, surpassing the previous record set in 2000-01, and $1.3 million more than last season. The number of students attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall has more than doubled over the same period last year. This season, more than 200 students, on average, are attending every evening subscription concert — at some concerts, students have represented 20% of the audience. New initiatives and promotions are attracting more students to Cleveland Orchestra concerts. The Student Frequent FanCard gives students flexibility and encourages frequency of attendance, and the “Under 18s Free” ticket program for families, launched at the 2011 Blossom Festival, expanded this season to Severance Hall. A network of a dozen student ambassadors, representing five area colleges, volunteer their time promoting student concert-going and help to create a vital social media presence around The Cleveland Orchestra.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Ticket sales revenue for The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2012-13 Severance Hall season is on track to set a new all-time record, driven by the best-ever ticket sales in November and December. Along with increased student attendance across the season, these growth numbers are encouraging news for the Orchestra’s strategic shifts in recent years and for the ensemble’s future. “Northeast Ohioans are clearly responding to the Orchestra’s strategic innovations. More people are attending a wider variety of our programs, and the significant increase in the number of new patrons at Severance Hall is extraordinary,” says Gary Hanson, Cleveland Orchestra executive director. “Our commitment to student attendance and a younger audience is part of a Cleveland Orchestra renaissance, as we commit to redoubling our commitment to community service and Northeast Ohio.” Front-page coverage in The Plain Dealer in January noted that The Cleveland Orchestra “is seeing attendance and ticket revenue skyrocket, mostly as a result of new programs aimed at children and students.” And, in an editorial, Crain’s Cleveland Business wrote that the Orchestra “deserves bravos for the hard work it and its supporters have done to secure the future of this ensemble of skilled musi-

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

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

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 was 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

Fascination & Rhythm T W O S Y M P H O N I E S , composed a hundred years apart.

A Danish music critic, after hearing an early performance of Carl Nielsen’s Symphony No. 3, composed in 1911, commented: “It is the new dominant element in 20th-century music, rhythm, that now makes its entry into the Danish symphony.” Franz Liszt is said to have called Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7, composed in 1811-12, “the apotheosis of rhythm.” Although Liszt’s remark may just be a rejoinder to what Richard Wagner said, there’s no question that these are two symphonies that set toes tapping. To compose music so strongly driven by rhythm was a populist gesture in both Beethoven’s time and Nielsen’s. In fact, the subtitle of Nielsen’s Third Symphony, “Sinfonia espansiva,” seems to refer not to an expanded orchestra or longer duration, but to the composer’s expansive feelings toward the world in general. Nielsen (1865-1931) is often compared to another Northern symphonist, Jean Sibelius (1865-1957), with Sibelius as the brooding Finn painting Arctic landscapes and Nielsen as the hearty, cheerful Dane from Scandinavia’s sunny south. The comparison is apt as far as it goes, but Nielsen also aspired to the energy and clarity of Beethoven, giving his music considerable force as well as folksy good cheer. So while the opening movement of Nielsen’s Third Symphony is in 3/4 time, its fierce energy seems to preclude calling it a “waltz,” as some commentators have done. The ensuing second movement pastorale could hardly provide greater contrast — static in harmony, ecstatic in mood, with a pretty flute melody and two wordless singing voices. After a rather sardonic scherzo that anticipates Shostakovich, the big-hearted finale spins free-form variations on a good solid folk-style theme. Beethoven, too, mixed fierce and folk in his Seventh Symphony — or, if you like, achieved a synthesis of his previous two symphonies, combining the energy of the Fifth with the pastoral song of the Sixth. Rhythmic patterns — especially the dactyl meter of dum-da-da — hold it all together and drive it forward, through the high-stepping dance of the first movement, the somber meditation of the second, the hearty laughter of the third, and (topping all that went before) the irresistible momentum of the finale. —David Wright David Wright lives and writes in Wellesley, Massachusetts. He previously served as program annotator for the New York Philharmonic.

Severance Hall 2012-13

T H E R E A S O N musicians seem to be speaking Italian half the time — with their allegro and pizzicato and crescendo and the rest — is that, over the centuries, the classical music of the West has been like a tidal wave from the Mediterranean, breaking in Italy and then sweeping across France, Austria, and Germany before lapping at the shores of the British Isles and Scandinavia. Each country changed the course of that wave as it passed, and eventually, in the past century or so, it propelled England’s Edward Elgar, Norway’s Edvard Grieg, and Finland’s Jean Sibelius to permanent enshrinement in the concert hall. After the middle of the 20th century, when the dominance of the Schoenberg twelve-tone school over new music began to wane, those northern countries kept on contributing to the eclectic mix that followed. Britain, for example, gave rise to a new generation of highly original composers, the richest harvest from there since the Elizabethan age. Meanwhile, the Mahler revival of the 1960s sent concert programmers back to the music library in search of other composers from the “recent past” who might have something to teach us about new uses for the old language of tonal harmony. Northerners with roots in folk music, such as the Englishman Ralph Vaughan Williams and the Dane Carl Nielsen, once thought unexportable from their native countries, could speak in their distinctive voices to audiences from Tokyo to Madrid. Carl Nielsen was born into a large, poor family in the hamlet of Sortelung, on the Danish island of Funen. His father, who eked out a living as a house painter and village fiddler, gave him what little early musical training he had. Young Carl discovered on his own the keyboard and string works of Bach, Haydn, and Mozart, and taught himself to play them. After attending the Copenhagen Conservatory on scholarship, Nielsen spent much of his middle and late twenties traveling to European capitals, educating himself in art, languages, and literature, and of course imbibing the latest developments in music. But Mozart remained his first love, and as the century turned, Nielsen was already composing in the forms and the cadences of the Classical era, but with a distinctly contemporary accent. Stravinsky’s stripped-down, parodic “neo-classicism” was still twenty years off, and Nielsen never had much

to do with it. What he was about, if it was “neo” anything, was neo-Beethoven — and even that was more a matter of attitude than of actual themes and sounds. For the kind of profoundly meaningful, philosophically-based music Nielsen aspired to create, the symphony was a natural choice. In 1916, Nielsen, the onetime country bumpkin and scholarship student, returned in triumph to the Copenhagen Conservatory as a governor, teacher, and examiner. (He would become its director in 1931.) By virtue of his energy, intelligence, warmth, and example as a composer, Nielsen was a natural leader. Through public speaking, conducting his own works and others’, and tirelessly serving on boards and committees, he revitalized and set high standards for music, not just in his immediate circle but across all of Scandinavia. Like Vaughan Williams, Nielsen composed hymn tunes that encouraged congregational singing in his countries’ churches. Vaughan Williams preserved folksongs and used them in some of his concert works; Nielsen, in an activity entirely separate from his Classicalinspired symphonies and chamber music, wrote and published dozens of new, easy-to-sing settings of Danish verse, achieving nothing less than the re-invention of Danish folksong. Carl Nielsen was never attracted to the Romantic-Nationalist style, the musical pigeonhole from which Grieg and Sibelius struggled mightily to escape. Rather, Nielsen’s Danishness — his ability to evoke the warm and friendly atmosphere of the country that is “the South” of Scandinavia — is at least as deeply sublimated in his symphonies as German folk music is in Beethoven’s. But there was, at first, a certain youthful desire to explain what he was up to. Although his Symphony No. 1 (1891-92) bears no title, Nielsen called his Symphony No. 2 (1901-02) “The Four Temperaments,” and explained in a program note that the work was inspired by a gaudy allegorical picture he saw on the wall of a Danish tavern. He pulled back to a more philosophical stance in the titles of symphonies No. 3 (“Sinfonia espansiva,” 1910-11) and No. 4 (“The Inextinguishable,” 1915-16), hinting that his subjects were, respectively, the beneficial power of the life force and its ability to overcome the challenge of death. It may seem a strange thing to say about a symphony that begins with a lengthy passage of loud, turbulent music for full orchestra, but in melodic terms Carl Nielsen is a Classical Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

Nielsen’s Third Symphony is certainly not “expansive” in terms of length or profligacy with themes — rather, it shows how much can be accomplished with a few simple materials. It takes an expansive view of human nature, pure and simple, making its way between earth and heaven.

minimalist à la Haydn or Beethoven, building his structures out of the smallest motivic building blocks. “One must show the sated,” he once wrote, “that the melodic interval of a third should be considered a gift from God, the fourth an experience, and a fifth the supreme happiness.” Nielsen’s Third Symphony is certainly not “expansive” in terms of length or profligacy with themes — rather, it shows how much can be accomplished with a few simple materials. It takes an expansive view of human nature, pure and simple, making its way between earth and heaven. It is odd, the way the words “coolness” and “reserve” come to mind when hearing the music of a composer who exploited the full resources of the late Romantic orchestra, but Nielsen combined his Northern personality with a modern quest for objectivity, and he saw the symphony as a rigorous medium. As befitted a disciple of Mozart, he sought out the clear and the colorful in his orchestrations. Nielsen’s hopeful yet unsentimental stance can be a tonic for our troubled new century. He shares with Bruckner not only peasant origins, but a mode of expression that is lucid and direct, sincere and selfless — something of a miracle in the ironic, self indulgent age of Mahler and Strauss during which he wrote. If his music occasionally has a hard, unyielding feeling, it may be because of his desire to create an indestructible gem of expression. In 1890, when Nielsen was 25 years old, he wrote in his diary: “I’ve come to the conclusion that [Carl Maria von] Weber will be forgotten in a hundred years’ time. There is something jelly like about a lot of his music. It is a fact that he who brandishes the hardest fist will be remembered longest. Beethoven, Michelangelo, Bach, Berlioz, Rembrandt, Shakespeare, Goethe, Henrik Ibsen, and the like have all given their time a black eye.” Nevertheless, the music has many houses or mansions, especially in the age of CDs, streaming, and the download. A century later, Weber is a resurgent star in concert halls, while this Northern symphonist, once lionized in his home country, then neglected after his death, is finally standing before us as just himself, with his fist cocked. The Symphony No. 3 opens somewhat in the manner of another “expansive” Third Symphony, Beethoven’s “Eroica” (or Heroic). But here, instead of hammering on the movement’s home chord, Nielsen turns the repeated note A into a stuttering upbeat to a theme in D minor. The vigorous but wayward Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Nielsen composed his Symphony No. 3 in 1910-11. The composer led the work’s premiere on February 28, 1912, with the Royal Orchestra in Copenhagen, Denmark. This symphony runs between 35 and 40 minutes in performance. Nielsen scored it for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (third doubling english horn), 3 clarinets, 3 bassoons (third doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings, plus soprano and bass soloists who vocalise (without text) in the second movement only; Nielsen provided an alternate version of the score with clarinets playing the vocal lines. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Nielsen’s Third Symphony at a series of concerts in February and March 1966 led by Louis Lane. Sixten Ehrling led a single performance of it during the 1970 Blossom Festival. The Orchestra has presented it on only one other occasion, at a weekend of concerts in March 1984, conducted by Andrew Davis.

movement in 3/4 meter has been compared to waltz parodies composed around the same time, such as Ravel’s La Valse and Stravinsky’s Pétrouchka — but to call such swashbuckling music a waltz is a bit of a stretch. The second movement, marked Andante pastorale, begins in an atmosphere as vague and static as the first movement was hard-edged and active. But soon the “pastoral” arrives in the form of a pretty flute tune that intertwines with itself, then alternates with a fervent theme for strings. The movement eventually winds down to a coda on the chord of E-flat major, as peaceful as the symphony’s opening was furious, and as harmonically distant from those loud opening A’s as it is possible to get. In a strikingly original touch, two wordless human voices are heard wheeling around ecstatically in the glow of E flat. We are awakened from this heavenly vision by a rather sarcastic little third-movement scherzo, which often seems to anticipate Shostakovich in its mechanical gestures and sneering wind sounds. Nielsen said he thought of the theme while riding a train, and wrote it on his shirt cuff. Perhaps that is what he meant when he called this movement “the heartbeat of the symphony,” because it does click along at a steady pace. Ever the lover of contrasts, the composer follows his acidic scherzo with a fourth-movement finale that opens in a hearty, friendly mood, with a forthright theme in the tradition of Beethoven’s Ninth or Brahms’s First. The movement’s hopping second theme is derived from this main theme, as are all the colorful episodes, so that the overall effect is of a free-form theme and variations. Even at the two points where the theme seems to return in full, Nielsen changes its shape a little and re-harmonizes it to reflect what has gone before — and also where he’s taking us, which is a coda firmly in A major. Thus, the symphony ends as it began, on a loud unison A, but this time it’s an arrival, not a departure. —David Wright © 2013

It is odd, the way the words “coolness” and “reserve” come to mind when hearing the music of a composer who exploited the full resources of the late Romantic orchestra, but Nielsen combined his Northern personality with a modern quest for objectivity.

that the Seventh Symphony, Beethoven’s greatest demonstration of the compelling power of rhythm, received its first hearing through the efforts of Johann Nepomuk Mälzel, inventor of the metronome. Mälzel has been described by one Beethoven biographer as “part Edison and part Barnum,” and while he is best remembered today for the little ticking box that has held generations of music students to the rhythmic straight and narrow, it was more extravagant contraptions, such as the Mechanical Chess Player and the Mechanical Trumpet, with which he mesmerized the public during his lifetime. Beethoven delighted in all sorts of modern devices, and was pleased to compose his bombastic Wellington’s Victory for another Mälzel instrument, the orchestra-imitating Panharmonicon. To help promote this confluence of two very different kinds of genius — his own mechanical and Beethoven’s compositional — Mälzel proposed a triumphal tour of England, to be funded by a series of concerts in Vienna. (The tour never came off, owing to a dispute between the two men over performing and publishing rights to the music.) The first concert would benefit Austrian soldiers wounded in the Napoleonic Wars; if that concert succeeded, there would be no problem selling tickets to repeat performances, which would be for the benefit of Mälzel and Beethoven. The latter’s new orchestral arrangement of Wellington’s Victory would attract patriotic Austrians to the concert, Mälzel’s Mechanical Trumpet would be heard in marches by Dussek and Pleyel, and, for connoisseurs, there would be a chance to hear an “entirely new symphony” Beethoven had recently finished, his Seventh. To assure the event’s drawing power, Mälzel lined up an allstar orchestra, with the great Schuppanzigh and Spohr leading the violins, the composer Meyerbeer and pianists Hummel and Moscheles playing drums and cymbals, and the venerable Salieri (rival of Mozart, teacher of Beethoven and Schubert) cuing the fanfares and salvos. (The presence of the 15-year-old Schubert at this concert has not been documented, but it seems likely, in view of the importance of the event and the strong rhythmic influence of the Seventh Symphony in Schubert’s later compositions.)

evidence. When the violinists complained about the difficulty of their part, the composer merely asked them politely to take it home and practice it; at the next rehearsal, there were smiles and compliments all around. Beethoven’s unique conducting style, however, was in full flower at the concert on December 8, 1813, with his gesturing perhaps exaggerated because of his deafness. From Louis Spohr’s description of it, one imagines that today Beethoven might cut quite a figure on public television: “Beethoven was in the habit of giving dynamic indications to the orchestra by means of all sorts of peculiar movements of his body. When he wanted a sforzando [‘suddenly strong’] he would vehemently throw out both his arms, which previously he had held crossed across his breast. For a piano [‘softly’] he would crouch down, going down deeper as he wanted the sound to be softer. Then, at the beginning of a crescendo [‘gradual increase in loudness’] he would rise gradually, and when the forte [‘loudly’] was reached he would leap up into the air. Occasionally he would shout with the music in order to make the forte stronger, without being conscious of it . . .” At one point, Beethoven’s inability to hear quiet passages led to near-disaster, when he overlooked the second of two pauses in the recapitulation of the symphony’s first movement. While the orchestra paused, Beethoven continued to beat time, getting himself about ten bars ahead of the players. Spohr’s description continued: “Beethoven, indicating the pianissimo passage in his own way, had crouched down under the music stand; at the crescendo, which followed, he became visible once more, made himself taller, and then leapt high up in the air at the moment when, according to his calculation, the forte should have begun. When this did not happen, he looked about him in terror, stared in astonishment at the orchestra, which was still playing the pianissimo, and found his place only when the solong-awaited forte began and became audible to him.” And how did this cliffhanging performance of a new “serious” work fare amid the hokum and foofooraw of Mälzel’s patriotic spectacle? Very well, thank you. The audience came prepared to be thrilled, and Beethoven’s robust new symphony didn’t disappoint them. Their applause, wrote one journalist, “rose to the point of ecstasy.” Significantly, it was not the symphony’s taut, propulsive outer movements that had to be repeated, but the melodious Allegretto, whose major-minor ambiguity so richly anticipated the bittersweet moods of postwar, Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Beethoven wrote his Seventh Symphony in 1811-12. He conducted the first performance on December 8, 1813, at a special concert at the University of Vienna. The score was published in 1816 with a dedication to Count Moritz von Fries, a Viennese nobleman and longtime patron. This symphony runs about 35 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony crept into The Cleveland Orchestra’s repertoire. The second movement was played by itself in November 1919, at the “First Popular Concert” of the Orchestra’s second season. The first performance of the entire symphony at a Cleveland Orchestra subscription concert was by the La Scala Orchestra of Milan, conducted by Arturo Toscanini, on February 2, 1921. The Cleveland Orchestra played the complete Symphony for the first time in April 1922 with music director Nikolai Sokoloff conducting. It has been played frequently on Orchestra concerts since that time — most recently in March 2009, when Kurt Masur led performances in Cleveland and Miami.

Biedermeier Vienna and its greatest composer, Schubert. To us latter-day listeners, however, the Seventh Symphony’s most striking characteristic may be the synthesis it achieves between the intensity and compression of the Fifth and the rustic high spirits of the “Pastoral” Sixth. Beethoven’s symphonic imagination had lain fallow for three years after he finished those two works, and this new start found him writing with a harmonic daring that assures that even his most obsessive rhythms will never become monotonous. Although the symphony is in A major, the remote keys of C and F figure so prominently that they become tonal centers in their own right, giving this busy music a much-needed sense of tonal space; the third-movement scherzo, in fact, turns the tables by being in F major, but ending its first phrase firmly on an A-major chord. The leap from this movement’s F-major conclusion to the initial E-major exclamations of the finale was breathtaking for 19th-century audiences (and can be for us today, too, it we allow ourselves the surprise); plunged into the middle of the action, we whirl around in a dominant E major, without “touching the ground” in tonic A major until the end of the theme’s first paragraph. It was not Beethoven’s harmonic skill, however, but his persistent rhythms that prompted Richard Wagner to call this symphony “the Apotheosis of the Dance.” The work’s patterns are all versions of the dactylic foot — one strong beat, followed by two weaker ones. The simplest form of this is the scherzo’s steady quarter notes in 3/4 meter. Then there is the famous “Schubert-rhythm” of the second-movement Allegretto, which, speeded up, becomes the engine that drives the finale. Even the cantering 6/8 of the first movement’s Vivace section is made up of innumerable tiny dactylic cells. Beethoven has not neglected the thematic unification of

this work, either. In particular, themes from the long Poco sostenuto introduction to the opening section throughout the first and later movements. For example, the introduction’s long, rising scales (like “gigantic stairs,” commented the English writer George Grove) can be heard cantering up and down in the development section of the movement’s main Vivace section. And this theme’s graceful turns and leaps eventually grow into the whirling-dervish theme of the finale. Later in the first movement, an immensely long crescendo builds over a bass that moans in semitones; something very similar happens before the coda of the finale (these are said to be the passages that caused Carl Maria von Weber to say that Beethoven was “ripe for the madhouse”) — and both of these moments have a close cousin in the Trio theme of the scherzo, with its wavering half-step. Such observations, however, can carry us only a little way toward understanding how a composer can be so bold and so right at the same time, throughout a long work. Even so, extramusical associations don’t add much, either. Donald Francis Tovey wrote that “the symphony is so overwhelmingly convincing and so untranslatable, that it has for many years been treated quite reasonably as a piece of music, instead of as an excuse for discussing the French Revolution.” The revolution, of course, is in the music. And familiar as this music is, it always catches us off guard, from the opening notes — a pregnant oboe theme that Beethoven promptly discards — to the sudden, final Amajor cannon shots, which explode any thought of a lengthy “Beethoven coda.” Asked once why he didn’t compose more music in the vein of his best-selling works, Beethoven replied, “Art always demands something new from us.” Two centuries after he wrote it, the Seventh Symphony sounds as new as tomorrow’s premiere.

It was not Beethoven’s great harmonic skills, but his persistent rhythms that prompted Richard Wagner to call the Seventh Symphony “the Apotheosis of the Dance.”

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 CLEVELAN D ORCHESTRA R E C O R D I N G S great gift ideas

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.

The concert begins with a set of orchestral highlights from Hans Werner Henze’s opera The Bassarids, a work for which Dohnányi led the world premiere in 1966.

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
