Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director April 2013 At the end of March, The Cleveland Orchestra received a $10 million, five-year grant from The Cleveland Foundation — the largest such commitment to an arts organization in the Foundation’s history and one of the largest gifts ever received by the Orchestra. We are deeply grateful for this exceptional grant and for the confidence in the Orchestra’s strategic direction that it represents. Over the past year, the Foundation’s staff and board have rigorously assessed the Orchestra’s ongoing transformation, and we sincerely appreciate their generous support of this important work. The Cleveland Foundation grant is a testament to much more than the Orchestra’s historical ranking among the world’s best — it is an extraordinary commitment to our programming innovations and our active community engagement. Sweeping changes at The Cleveland Orchestra have taken root in recent years and are starting to bear fruit. These include our efforts to foster future audiences, to shape and focus our education programs, and our work to build strong and meaningful working partnerships across the Northeast Ohio community. We are on target for a record-breaking season in ticket sales here at Severance Hall, including a significant increase in the number of young people eagerly enjoying and energizing our regular classical concerts. These numbers are the direct result of strong marketing programs (such as Student Advantage and Under18s Free) for our core symphonic concerts and innovative programming changes (including the KeyBank Fridays@7 and Celebrity series). Our education and community programs are also scoring strong successes. Our longstanding commitment to education was celebrated in March, including a unique showcase concert featuring all our youth ensembles performing together with The Cleveland Orchestra for the first time — a special event that was telecast on WVIZ. In addition, we believe that the introduction of “Make Music!” as a focus and catalyst for our ongoing work in music education will bring new understanding and energy to these programs. New initiatives in the community include the Orchestra’s inaugural neighborhood residency, “At Home in Gordon Square,” which unleashes a week filled with free events and performances, May 11-17, as part of the vibrant renaissance of this westside neighborhood. Good news about The Cleveland Orchestra and Northeast Ohio will continue. The initial stages of our Sound for the Centennial Campaign’s endowment and special fundraising phases have been strong, as evidenced by The Cleveland Foundation’s generous gift and by commitments from additional forward-looking organizations and individuals (see pages 48-49). This Campaign spans the decade up to the Orchestra’s hundredth birthday in 2018, and comprises all our fundraising efforts across the next five years. With your support and enthusiasm, there will be more good news ahead — for The Cleveland Orchestra and the entire Northeast Ohio community.

of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra has become one of the most sought-after performing ensembles in the world. In concerts at its winter home at Severance Hall and at each summer’s Blossom Festival, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative programming, and community engagement. The partnership with Franz Welser-Möst, now in its eleventh season — and with a commitment to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018 — has moved the ensemble forward with a series of new and ongoing initiatives, including: UNDER THE LEADERSHIP

the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base, including an ongoing residency at the Vienna Musikverein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra); expansion of education and community programs in Northeast Ohio to make music an integral and regular part of everyday life for more people; the 2012-13 season includes the launch of an annual Neighborhood Residency pro-

gram that will bring The Cleveland Orchestra to neighborhoods across the region for an intensive week of special activities and performances. First stop is the Gordon Square Arts District in Cleveland’s Detroit/Shoreway neighborhood in May 2013; an ongoing residency in Florida, under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami, involving an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with an expansive set of educational presentations and collaborations (based on successful educational programs pioneered at home in Cleveland); creative new artistic collaborations, including staged works and chamber music performances, with arts institutions in Northeast Ohio and in Miami; an array of new concert offerings (including Fridays@7 and Celebrity Series at Severance Hall as well as movie, themed, and family presentations at Blossom) to make a wider variety of concerts more available and affordable; concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including annual appearances at Carnegie Hall; regular concert tours to Europe and Asia; ongoing recording activities, including new releases under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst, Mitsuko Uchida, and Pierre Boulez, as well as a series of DVD concert presentations of symphonies by Anton Bruckner; a concentrated and ongoing effort to develop future generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio, through research, targeted discounts, social media offers and promotion, and student ticket programs; continuing and expanded educational partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities across Northeast Ohio and in the Miami-Dade community; additional new residencies at Indiana University and at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival; the return of ballet as a regular part of the Orchestra’s presentations, featuring performances by The Joffrey Ballet; the 2012-13 season featured the Orchestra’s first fully staged performances of Tchaikovsky’s The Nutcracker. The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918 by a group of local citizens intent on creating an ensemble worthy of joining America’s ranks of major symphony orchestras. Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s home brought a special pride to the ensemble and its hometown, as well as providing an enviable and intimate acoustic environment in which to develop and refine the Orchestra’s artistry. Year-round performances became a reality in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facilities in the United States.

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 acoustically 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.

Cleveland Foundation grants Orchestra $10 million Largest gift to an arts organization in Foundation’s history is vote of confidence in The Cleveland Orchestra’s programming innovations and community engagement across Northeast Ohio

—Cleveland Plain Dealer, March 28

The Cleveland Foundation has awarded The Cleveland Orchestra a $10 million grant to support its ongoing efforts to cultivate new and broader audiences and to build a strong endowment to sustain the nearly century-old institution. The grant . . . is a demonstration of the grantmaking organization’s confidence in the strategic direction the orchestra is taking, said Robert Eckardt, The Cleveland Foundation’s executive vice president. . . . “It was time to step up and provide a significant commitment to the Orchestra as they work through the challenging environment they find themselves in,” Mr. Eckardt said. . . . “They are an important part of Cleveland’s brand, and it’s difficult to imagine Cleveland without a world-class orchestra.” . . . Gary Hanson, the orchestra’s executive director, stated that The Cleveland Foundation’s commitment . . . adds “meaningful momentum” to the Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial fundraising campaign, which runs through 2018 — the orchestra’s 100-year anniversary.

“The Cleveland Foundation’s just-announced $10 million grant to The Cleveland Orchestra — the largest arts grant in the foundation’s history — is a ringing vote of confidence in the future of this treasured local institution and its pacesetting innovations. . . . The grant is a welcome affirmation that The Cleveland Orchestra will be making beautiful music for another 100 years.”

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

On March 28, The Cleveland Foundation announced the awarding of a five-year, $10 million grant to The Cleveland Orchestra in support of the Orchestra’s recent and ongoing efforts to attract a new, broader audience and to transform itself for the future. Given as part of the Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial Campaign, this unprecedented grant is the largest single grant to an arts organization in the Foundation’s 99-year history. “We are deeply grateful for the Cleveland Foundation’s extraordinary grant and the confidence in the Orchestra’s strategic direction that it represents,” says Gary Hanson, executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra. “Over the past year, the foundation’s staff and board have rigorously assessed the Orchestra’s ongoing transformation and we sincerely appreciate their generous commitment to our work.” “Through the years, the Cleveland Foundation has stepped up to provide significant support to major Northeast Ohio institutions at pivotal times,” remarked Ronald B. Richard, president and chief executive officer of the Foundation. “We intend that this grant will catalyze additional leadership funding for the Orchestra’s creative efforts in the community to make this world-class institution accessible and enjoyable to all of Greater Cleveland for years to come.” The grant to the Orchestra was part of a record $26.6 million in grants in the first quarter of 2013 authorized by the Foundation’s board of directors, including grants in support of core neighborhood and youth initiatives, educational institutions, and efforts to create a vibrant downtown. Established in 1914, the Cleveland Foundation is the world’s first community foundation and one of the largest today. Through the generosity of donors, the foundation improves the lives of Greater Clevelanders by building community endowment, addressing needs through grantmaking, and providing leadership on vital issues.

The Cleveland Orchestra has announced its 2013-14 season, with complete details and renewal forms due to be mailed to all current subscribers in the coming weeks. (For the first time, series subscriptions can be renewed online through the Orchestra’s website — complete instructions are included in each subscriber’s mailed renewal package.) Series packages for the season’s classical concerts are available through Severance Hall Ticket Services as of the end of March. Individual tickets to the season will go on sale in late summer. Additional details about the 2013-14 season — including Celebrity Series, Family Concert Series, PNC Musical Rainbows, Holiday Concerts, and special presentations — will be announced in the coming months. For the 2013-14 season, Franz WelserMöst introduces a Fall Festival, pairing symphonies by Beethoven and Shostakovich, and an all-Brahms weekend with two programs featuring works by Brahms, and also leads semi-staged performances of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen. Guest artists returning to Severance Hall include Leon Fleisher, Mitsuko Uchida, Radu Lupu, and conductors Christoph von Dohnányi, Pierre Boulez, and Herbert Blomstedt. The Orchestra commemorates the 100th anniversary of the birth of Benjamin Britten with performances of three of his major works. FRANZ WELSER-MÖST CONDUCTS In his twelfth season as music director, Franz Welser-Möst introduces a Fall Festival in October, featuring symphonies by Beethoven and Shostakovich in three programs. Beethoven’s Symphonies Nos. 3, 4, and 5 are paired with Shostakovich’s Nos. 6, 8, and 10. In addition to conducting the performances at Severance Hall, Welser-Möst will speak about the program pairings in a special festival preview. “The dream of freedom inspired the

founding of our society,” says Welser-Möst. “Political and social freedom is presented so emotionally and clearly in Beethoven’s music. By listening to the music of Beethoven and Shostakovich in juxtaposition, we can experience their ideas of freedom from different eras, yet from today’s perspective.” Franz Welser-Möst continues an emphasis on operatic and choral repertoire in the 2013-14 season, with the Cleveland premiere performances of Janáček’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen and performances of Beethoven’s Mass in C major and Britten’s Spring Symphony. Soprano Martina Janková returns to perform the title role in The Cunning Little Vixen in May 2014. The cast also includes bass-baritone Alan Held and mezzo-sopranos Jennifer Johnson Cano and Julie Boulianne. The music of Brahms will be featured in two programs led by Welser-Möst in January 2014.

BENJAMIN BRITTEN COMMEMORATION During the 2013-14 season, The Cleveland Orchestra will mark the 100th anniversary commemoration of Benjamin Britten’s birth. Born November 22, 1913, Britten is one of the most celebrated and most performed British composers. In March 2014, Franz Welser-Möst conducts Britten’s Spring Symphony, a large work with soloists and chorus that Britten described as “a symphony not only dealing with the Spring itself but with the progress of Winter to Spring and the reawakening of the earth and life which that means.” In October 2013, Marek Janowski leads performances of Britten’s Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings with soloists Matthew Polenzani and Cleveland Orchestra principal horn Richard King. The Serenade is a song cycle about night, sleep, and death, with texts by six British poets. And in May 2014, Janine Jansen performs Britten’s Violin Concerto under the direction of Vladimir Jurowski.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

The George Gund Foundation awarded a $3 million grant at its February board meeting to support The Cleveland Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial Campaign. Pledged over six years, the award honors the late George Gund III, who was a trustee of the Musical Arts Association. The Foundation’s commitment permanently endows a new Fund for Artistic Excellence in George Gund’s name, providing immediate support for the Orchestra’s core artistic programming for the community. “This commitment to the Campaign not only celebrates George Gund’s legacy and leadership at the Orchestra,” said David Abbott, the Foundation’s executive director. “It also ensures that one of our community’s most valuable assets can continue to serve Northeast Ohio at the

highest levels of artistic excellence.” George Gund III was elected as an international trustee in 1994 and served on the board of the Musical Arts Association for 19 years. The new gift is the largest gift made by the Gund Foundation to The Cleveland Orchestra, and ranks among the largest institutional leadership commitments to the Sound for the Centennial Campaign thus far, as well as among the Foundation’s largest commitments to a cultural organization in Northeast Ohio. The Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial Campaign runs through the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018 and will ensure that the Orchestra can continue to thrive now and into the future by building a significant endowment and providing immediate support for artistic excellence and community and education programs.

Spring audition dates for the choral groups sponsored by The Cleveland Orchestra have been announced. The auditions — for adults, youth, and children — are for membership in groups singing during the 2013 Blossom Music Festival and the 2013-14 Season at Severance Hall. Auditions will take place in May and June. The Cleveland Orchestra Choruses embody a long-standing commitment to choral music in which community members of all ages have the opportunity to participate. The Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus is open to students in grades 6-8 and directed by Ann Usher, and the Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Preparatory Chorus is open to students in grades 5-8 and directed by Suzanne Walters. Both groups are holding auditions on May 20, June 3, and June 8. The Children’s Chorus, formed in 1967, provides musical training in vocal production and choral performance skills. The Children’s Preparatory Chorus provides children with initial choral experiences to which younger singers may not have been exposed, while establishing a solid foundation in vocal production techniques. To audition, children are asked to sing one verse of “America” (My Country, ’Tis of Thee) with piano accompaniment in the key of his or her choice and one verse of “America the Beautiful” (Oh beautiful, for spacious skies) without accompaniment in the key of D. Singing scales and doing some rhythmic exercises may also be included in the audition, for which an accompanist is provided. Students in grades 9-12 are welcome to audition for the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus, directed by Lisa Wong, on May 4, June 1, or June 2. Created in 1991, the Youth Chorus helps raise awareness of choral music-making in the schools of Northeast Ohio and encourages students to continue their choral activities through college and into adulthood.

INTRODUCING THE PROGRAM

Invention & Legacy THE THIR T Y-T WO

Beethoven piano sonatas, the two-hundred-odd Bach cantatas, Wagner’s Ring of the Nibelung operas — these stand among the mighty legacies of classical music, works that lie at the heart of Western civilization. Mozart’s piano concertos belong indisputably in this company, and although they are all the work of a young man who did not progress from stage to stage as longer-lived composers did, they present an unrivaled wealth of invention and feeling. More consistent in style than his operas, more personal than his symphonies, and more accessible than his chamber music, Mozart’s piano concertos — written across a period of eighteen years — have a fair claim to represent the real Mozart. With Mitsuko Uchida leading the Orchestra from the keyboard, this weekend’s concerts feature two concertos from the richest period of this composer’s highly productive life, the mid-1780s. Both are superb specimens of his unequaled craft. So is the Divertimento in B-flat major, which heralds the sixteen-year-old composer’s emergence from childhood to an adolescent maturity. For this piece for strings alone, following 18th-century practice, The Cleveland Orchestra will perform standing, led by Peter Otto from the front chair of first violins. —Hugh Macdonald

Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major, K453 composed 1784 BETWEEN THE BEGINNING

by

Wolfgang Amadè

MOZART born January 27, 1756 Salzburg died December 5, 1791 Vienna

Severance Hall 2012-13

of 1784 and the end of 1786, within a span of three years, Mozart composed a dozen piano concertos. There could be no clearer indication of his high standing as a concert soloist in those years, nor of his intensely rich creativity in a form that, at the time, was somewhat narrowly circumscribed in terms of length and design, but which he crafted with an endless variety of detail. He was happy to keep writing new works in the same genre, usually for himself to play, and his invention showed no sign whatever of going stale. Writing and playing piano concertos was his main occupation at this time. Many Viennese thought of him then as a star pianist rather than as a composer. He had not yet proved himself, in their eyes, as an opera composer. When their appetite for piano concertos declined, his career faltered. We have to imagine his ever boyish personality delighting in the public attention he received when playing his concertos, conducting from the keyboard, admired by audience and orchestra, and clearly mining depths of feeling in the music that belied the superficial features of his behavior. But, of course, he was always ahead of his audience, wishing they understood the music more profoundly, thinking about his next work, and longing for official recognition that might ease the uncertainties of the musician’s life. Some of his concertos were written for others to play, always young women. This concerto, No. 17, and an earlier one, No. 14 in E-flat major, were written for Barbara Ployer, daughter of the Vienna agent of the Salzburg court, Franz Cajetan Ployer. She paid Mozart “handsomely” for the commission, but when or if she played the first performances is not known. She certainly did perform this second of her concertos at her father’s house in Döbling, just outside Vienna, on June 13, 1784, for we know that Mozart proudly took the famous composer Giovanni Paisiello along as his guest so that he could hear some of Mozart’s works. The concerto displays a delightful open-air breeziness, clearly expressed in the first movement’s opening theme and in the elegant passagework that the piano eagerly offers as soon as it enters. However simple a theme may be at its first appearance, it will always lead to a parade of glittering fingerwork as About the Music

it approaches a big cadence, as it has to do at least twice in an opening movement of this kind. (Notice the bold absence of accompaniment in the first bar — the melody has started in the violins, but the other instruments are obliged to hold back.) The elegant second movement puts the wind instruments on display, as if in rivalry with the piano, and the third movement opens as a series of variations on a nicely balanced, playful theme. The finale’s first three variations get more elaborate one by one; the fourth is tortuous and chromatic, in the minor mode, with, in compensation, a jubilant variation to follow, which almost seems to beg for the trumpets and drums that this concerto does not employ. Rather than pursue his variations to the end, Mozart closes with something like a scene from a comic opera, as if in anticipation of The Marriage of Figaro, although he allows the theme of the variations to make a teasing reappearance at the very end. When he played the solo part in his concertos himself, Mozart normally did not bother to write out the solo cadenzas, nor perhaps did he have time. He clearly enjoyed improvising such things. When others played, he would usually write out such parts for them. Thus, for this concerto we have authentic cadenzas for the first two movements — and also some less authentic ones, which at a minimum date from the same period. These serve as useful models for today’s pianists if they choose to provide their own cadenzas. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

Writing and playing piano concertos was Mozart’s main occupation in the early and mid-1780s. Many Viennese thought of him then as a star pianist rather than as a composer.

It was performed on June 13 of that year, by Mozart’s pupil Babette Ployer; it may have been played early that year, at a concert in late April, with Mozart as soloist and conductor. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Mozart scored it for flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, strings, and solo piano. Mitsuko Uchida is performing Mozart’s

own cadenzas in this concerto. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed this concerto in April 1948, with George Szell conducting and Rudolf Serkin as soloist. Among later performances, Peter Serkin (Rudolf’s son) was the soloist with the Orchestra in September 1990 under the direction of Christoph von Dohnányi. The most recent performances were in November 2011 at Severance Hall, with Jonathan Biss as soloist and Fabio Luisi as conductor.

Divertimento in B-flat major, K137 composed 1772 E A R LY I N 17 7 2 ,

Severance Hall 2012-13

the sixteen-year-old Mozart composed three short works for strings, which survive together in a single manuscript and were cataloged in the 19th century as K136 through K138. At the head of each piece, someone else later wrote the title “Divertimento,” as good a title as any for such a clever, appealing musical selection. Somewhere in the chronological numbering of Mozart’s works compiled by Ludwig Ritter von Köchel, the music ceases to be a child’s work and becomes a man’s — and for many, the milestone is to be found at No. 136, the first of these three Divertimentos. We could probably live, albeit regretfully, without the first 135 works, but the 136th and its two companion pieces are small masterpieces, perfect in craftsmanship and full of that intensely musical vitality that was beginning to mark off Mozart as more than a child prodigy. He had just returned from a long visit to Italy, where he had composed a good deal and been abundantly admired. The prospect of a successful career was still undimmed, although the recent appointment of the unsympathetic Hieronymus von Colloredo as archbishop of Salzburg was to cast a long shadow over the next nine years. These three short works reveal little of Mozart’s real teenage heart, but they do tell us how perfectly he understood string instruments. In performance, we should picture father Leopold leading a group of string players from the first violin desk at the Salzburg court, while everyone talked noisily through the music, undiverted by the Divertimento. The second of the three works, K137, begins, unusually, with the slow movement, and begins moreover with phrases that sound more like the middle than the start of a movement. All three movements are patterned in the same way, each a compact sonata form, with both halves of each movement repeated. The tune that closes each half of the final movement has a folksy charm that reminds us that even at court the peasants’ music has a place. Much ink has been spilled in debating the issue of whether these works are for string orchestra or for string quartet. The original manuscript does not make it clear and they were not published until some years after the composer’s death. The ambiguity lies in the word “Basso” (rather than “Bassi”) for About the Music

the cello (and bass) part, since the singular form was habitually applied to the bass line in the 18th century, not necessarily indicating a singular individual as the player. Most musicians would agree, however, that this music is sent from heaven, no matter what form we hear it in. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

What’s his name? Mozart was baptized as Johannes Chrysostomus Wolfgangus Theophilus Mozart. His first two baptismal names, Johannes Chrysostomus, represent his saints’ names, following the custom of the Roman Catholic Church at the time. In practice, his family called him Wolfgang. Theophilus comes from Greek and can be rendered as “lover of God” or “loved by God.” Amadeus is a Latin version of this same name. Mozart most often signed his name as “Wolfgang Amadè Mozart,” saving Amadeus only as an occasional joke. At the time of his death, scholars in all fields of learning were quite enamored of Latin naming and conventions (this is the period of the classification and cataloging of life on earth into kingdom, phylum, class, order, family, genus, species, etc.), and successfully “changed” his name to Amadeus. Only in recent years have we started remembering the Amadè middle name he preferred.

At a Glance Mozart wrote three divertimentos for strings in 1772. The location and date of first performances are unknown. This divertimento in B-flat major runs just over 10 minutes in performance. It is scored for strings (although the manuscript score makes it unclear whether it was intended for string quartet, larger string ensemble, or both). The Cleveland Orchestra has presented this Divertimento in B-flat major on one previous occasion, at a weekend of concerts in November 2005.

Piano Concerto No. 25 in C major, K503 composed 1784-86

by

Wolfgang Amadè

MOZART born January 27, 1756 Salzburg died December 5, 1791 Vienna

Severance Hall 2012-13

T H E F I N A L C O N C E R T O from the series of fifteen such works that Mozart wrote between 1784 and 1786, No. 25 in modern numbering, is in the key of C major and was completed on December 4, 1786. Only two days later, the composer completed a new symphony in D major. We do not know whether Mozart had a particular occasion in mind for the performance of these works, but two days later the Vienna correspondent of a Hamburg newspaper reported that “the famous composer Herr Mozart” was preparing to travel in the coming New Year to London. “He will go by way of Paris.” Such a trip (which never took place) would certainly require new works in his luggage. In fact he went not to London or Paris (his aging father Leopold refused to babysit), but to present The Marriage of Figaro to the citizens of Prague, who so loved the opera that they immediately commissioned another masterpiece in the form of Don Giovanni. While Mozart was there, the new symphony was played on January 19, 1787, and so it has come down to history as the “Prague” Symphony. When — or even if — the new piano concerto was played by the composer is not known. The two works, concerto and symphony, had probably taken shape on Mozart’s desk side by side. From his exhaustive study of Mozart’s manuscripts, the British scholar Alan Tyson was able to show that the first six leaves (out of 55) of the manuscript of the concerto were set down in the winter of 1784-85, nearly two years before the date of completion. So, having buried his third child on November 17, 1786, and having completed a piano trio one day later, Mozart must have worked at incredible speed to finish the piano concerto as well as a brand new symphony within a couple of weeks. Firm, heroic C-major chords proclaim a majestic tone for the first movement. Mozart’s previous piano concerto had been in C minor, with a somber and earnest tone that needed to be dispelled in brighter major-key colors. So here the sun seems to shine and the invention reposes on solid chords and scales — with not too much of that expressive chromaticism that Mozart could always turn to when he wished to plumb the depths of feeling. The second principal tune, as simple as a nursery song, switches playfully from minor to major. By convention, the soloist will review the orchestra’s themes About the Music

TEXT

Mozart’s Piano Concertos Altogether, Mozart created more than thirty separate works for orchestra and piano. Although a few were published during his lifetime, many did not become widely available until efforts in the 19th century to organize, catalog, and publish the composer’s output. Ludwig von Köchel reconstructed the chronology of Mozart’s compositions in the mid-19th century and published his cataloging of Mozart’s works in 1862. Following Köchel’s chronology, the music for Mozart’s complete works was published by Breitkopf & Härtel, with the piano concertos numbered chronologically from 1 to 27. The first four numbered concertos are early works now known to be arrangements of keyboard sonatas by various other contemporary composers (including Raupach, Honauer, and C.P.E. Bach). Not included in the list printed here are three additional concertos that Mozart completed in 1772 from music by J.C. Bach.

in a different light, but Mozart instead replaces the nursery tune with two new themes of much greater sophistication. For that transgression, the opening movement’s development section — usually a potpourri of tunes heard earlier — is confined entirely to the nursery theme, heard in every possible key and every possible combination, and leading to a kind of marvelous flowing woodwind passages that Mozart particularly favored in his piano concertos. The movement’s recapitulation section dutifully presents all the themes again, with no favorites. The composer, expecting to play the solo part himself, wrote down no cadenza. The second-movement Andante’s melody is elegantly shared by violins, flute, and the other winds. The piano enters with the same melody, and a mood of unhurried serenity takes over. Some wide leaps in the right hand are the only possible disturbances of this quiet mood, never straying far from the main key and the main melody. The third-movement finale is a rondo of the playful type favored in these concertos. The soloist repeatedly introduces sprightly new ideas; the orchestra regularly brings back the rondo theme. In one episode the piano leads off, then hands the tune to the oboe, then to the flute, then to oboe and bassoon, and the woodwinds draw each other in as if to a gathering of like-minded friends. It is no wonder that wind players have such a fondness for Mozart’s piano concertos. The solo part is full of virtuoso figuration, and it keeps pressing up against the high F, which was the top note on Mozart’s piano. Yet there is never any sense that Mozart was fighting against the resources he had available to him; he matched means to ends in a balance that no other composer ever achieved.

This is the final concerto from the great series of fifteen such works that Mozart wrote between 1784 and 1786. We do not know whether Mozart had a particular occasion in mind for its performance.

Mitsuko Uchida Mitsuko Uchida’s interpretations of a wide range of repertoire have gained her a formidable reputation as a pianist who brings intellectual acuity and musical insight to her performances. She is particularly noted for her interpretations of Mozart, Beethoven, and Schubert, both in the concert hall and on CD, but has also illuminated the music of Berg, Schoenberg, Webern, and Boulez, for a new generation of listeners. Ms. Uchida made her Cleveland Orchestra debut in February 1990, and since that time has performed with the Orchestra at Severance Hall, at its annual Blossom Festival, and on tour in Europe and Japan. She made her Cleveland Orchestra conducting debut in March 1998, and subsequently led performances from the keyboard of all of Mozart’s solo piano concertos as artist-in-residence across five seasons (2002-07). Her most recent appearances with the Orchestra in Cleveland were for performances in April 2012, leading Mozart piano concertos from the keyboard. In February 2011, she performed in a special solo benefit concert at Severance Hall to raise funds to support the ongoing maintenance of The Cleveland Orchestra’s pianos. In the autumn of 2010, she travelled to Asia for performances with the Orchestra in Japan. A year earlier, she appeared as soloist during the Orchestra’s 2009 European Tour and Vienna Musikverein Residency with Franz Welser-Möst. Mitsuko Uchida performs throughout the world with many different partners. In addition to playing with The Cleveland Orchestra, recent and upcoming highlights include a new series of the five Beethoven piano concertos (spanning two seasons) with the London Symphony Orchestra and Colin Davis, performances with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, a series of concerts in Spain and Portugal with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra, and performances in Japan with the Hagen Quartet and with soprano Magdalena Kožená across Europe. Ms. Uchida was featured in the Amsterdam Concertgebouw’s Carte Blanche series, with the same programs also forming the core of series in Cologne and London. In addition, she was the focus of a Carnegie Hall “Perspectives” series titled Mitsuko Uchida: Vienna Revisited. In February 2010, she performed all five Beethoven piano concertos with conductor Simon Rattle during a month-long residency with the Berlin Philharmonic. Mitsuko Uchida records exclusively for Decca. In April 2008, BBC Music Magazine presented its Instrumentalist of the Year and Disc of the Year awards to Ms. Uchida. Her recording of Schoenberg’s Piano Concerto with Pierre Boulez and The Cleveland Orchestra won four awards, including one from Gramophone for best concerto recording. Three of her most recent recordings were recorded live at Severance Severance Hall 2012-13

Hall with The Cleveland Orchestra and feature six of Mozart’s piano concertos. The album featuring concertos Nos. 23 and 24 received a Grammy Award in 2011 for “best instrumental soloist with an orchestra.” Plans call for her to record the concertos on this weekend’s concerts with The Cleveland Orchestra in the future. Ms. Uchida’s discography also includes the complete Mozart piano sonatas and piano concertos (with the English Chamber Orchestra), the complete Schubert piano sonatas, Debussy’s Etudes, the five Beethoven piano concertos with Kurt Sanderling, a CD of Mozart violin sonatas with Mark Steinberg, the song cycle Die Schöne Müllerin with Ian Bostridge for EMI, the final five Beethoven piano sonatas, and a 2008 recording of Berg’s Chamber Concerto with the Ensemble Intercontemporain, Pierre Boulez, and Christian Tetzlaff. Mitsuko Uchida has demonstrated a long-standing commitment to aiding the development of young musicians and is a trustee of the Borletti-Buitoni Trust. She is also co-director, with Richard Goode, of the Marlboro Music Festival in Vermont. In June 2009, she was made a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire. Mitsuko Uchida will sign compact discs after the concerts on Thursday and Friday evenings in the Lerner Lobby at the Cleveland Orchestra Store on the ground floor of Severance Hall. A selection of her albums are available for sale through the Cleveland Orchestra Store.

The lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestra’s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severance’s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

The Cleveland Orchestra


Meet Nancy Dotson Cleveland Orchestra Heritage Society member, former State Chair of the Blossom Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee, and Heritage Society radio ambassador on WCLV When did you begin attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts? Dick and I have lived in the area for 33 years and have been attending concerts for most of those years. What is your favorite concert experience with The Cleveland Orchestra? Without a doubt, we will never forget the concert at Severance Hall several years ago with Sir Colin Davis and Mitsuko Uchida and the Mozart Piano Concerto. Sitting in the dress circle and seeing the interaction of these two icons and The Cleveland Orchestra is something I will never forget. What is your favorite memory of The Cleveland Orchestra or Blossom Festival? Dick and I have so many wonderful memories of Blossom and Severance Hall. Living in Hudson and only 20 minutes from Blossom, our summer revolves around the lyrical weekend evenings at Blossom. Sitting on the Lawn with a glass of wine under the stars is our idea of a perfect date! Meeting various members of The Cleveland Orchestra at the summer Gourmet Matinee Luncheons or the Orchestra Picnic sponsored by the Blossom Womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Committee have also been special treats. What reason do you suggest when extending an invitation to join the Heritage Society? It is a very special privilege to have The Cleveland Orchestra so readily accessible and convenient to attend. It is for these reasons that we made a decision to include the Orchestra in our estate planning several years ago. Leaving a legacy for future generations to enjoy this music and for the musicians to carry on the music is something we are happy we can do.

The Cleveland Orchestra Center for Future Audiences T H E C L E V E L A N D O R C H E S T R A ’s Center for Future Audiences was estab-

lished to fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio. The Center was created in 2010 with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation. Center-funded programs focus on addressing economic and geographic barriers to attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center. Programs include research, introductory offers, targeted discounts, student ticket programs, and integrated use of new technologies. The goal is to create one of the youngest audiences of any symphony orchestra in the country. For additional information about these plans and programs, call us at 216-231-7464.

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.

HANDEL’S WATER MUSIC Thursday May 9 at 8:00 p.m. Friday May 10 at 8:00 p.m. THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Ton Koopman, conductor Jay Carter, countertenor Steven Soph, tenor Klaus Mertens, bass Cleveland Orchestra Chamber Chorus

In 1717, England’s King George was suffering in the polls. His political advisors suggested that he do something big to get the people behind him. They came up with the idea of a summer boating party on the Thames, for which Handel wrote the music. Arguably the most popular piece of Baroque music today, Water Music makes fashionable use of the dance forms popular at the time, combining festivity and finesse. Sponsor: Thompson Hine LLP

Pop-jazz superstar Patti Austin began her career as a fouryear-old, onstage with legend Dinah Washington. Since then, she has performed hit songs all over the world. In a tribute to jazz giants Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington, Patti Austin joins The Cleveland Orchestra for a program of all-time favorites such as “Cottontail,” “I Got It Bad,” “Honeysuckle Rose,” “Mr. Paganini,” and more!

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA James Feddeck, conductor Robert Walters, oboe d’amore 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 evening opens with a concerto by J.S. Bach, for oboe d’amore. Sponsor: KeyBank

Pop-jazz superstar Patti Austin began her career as a four-year-old, onstage with the legendary Dinah Washington. Since then, she has performed hit songs all over the world — and is considered one of the most stunning interpreters of song onstage today. In a tribute to jazz giants Ella Fitzgerald and Duke Ellington. She joins with The Cleveland Orchestra for this program featuring songs from Austin’s Grammynominated album For Ella, including such favorites as “I’ve Got You Under My Skin,” “I Only Have Eyes For You,” “Mack the Knife,” and more!
