Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director April 18, 2013 It is with sadness that I write of the death earlier this week of former Cleveland Orchestra trumpeter David Zauder. David passed away on Tuesday morning, surrounded by his family in Colorado. Through his long career here, David had a deep and lasting impact on this institution.


David was hired by George Szell, joining the trumpet section of The Cleveland Orchestra in 1958. He served until the close of the 1996-97 season, taking on the concurrent role of principal cornet and retiring after 39 years — longer than any other trumpeter in the Orchestra’s history. Equal in importance to David’s service as a member of the Orchestra was his extraordinary tenure as our Orchestra Personnel Manager, a post he held for 25 seasons, through all of Lorin Maazel’s and much of Christoph von Dohnányi’s music directorships. David had earlier served as Asssistant Personnel Manager, 1960-71, covering the final decade of George Szell’s tenure. While much of David’s work was out of the spotlight, he stepped forward as a soloist with the Orchestra on several occasions. His final solo appearance was for the opening night gala concert in 1996. He was also the featured soloist in twenty concerts with the Blossom Festival Concert Band, DAVID ZAUDER an organization for which he was the guiding spirit from its inception in Blossom’s second season in 1969. In recognition of his extraordinary service, David was the recipient of the Orchestra’s Distinguished Service Award in 1997. I remember David as a leader who faced every challenge with good humor and good judgement. And no matter how difficult the situation, you were always aware of his love for the institution, and for the people around him. He cared about everyone and no occasion in the lives of his colleagues was too small to go unrecognized. His great humanity and his love of life were doubtless shaped by his personal history as a Holocaust survivor. David was born in Krakow, Poland, in 1928 or 1931 — his birth year is uncertain as his birth certificate was destroyed during the war. As a youth, he was interned in the Auschwitz, Flossenburg, and Sachsenhausen concentration camps. David survived and began his new life in America on May 20, 1946. His story has been told in the published work of his daughter, Karen Brass. David Zauder was a great friend to The Cleveland Orchestra and to this community. We will miss him terribly, but we’ll never forget him.

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

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

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

Franz Welser-Möst Music Director Kelvin Smith Family Endowed Chair The Cleveland Orchestra


T H E 2 0 1 2 - 1 3 S E A S O N marks Franz Welser-Möst’s eleventh year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with a long-term commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his direction, the Orchestra is acclaimed for its continuing artistic excellence, is enlarging and enhancing its community programming at home, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, continues its historic championship of new composers through commissions and premieres, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Mr. Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010. With a committed focus on music education in Northeast Ohio, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with performances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. The initiative continues and expands upon Mr. Welser-Möst’s active participation in community concerts and educational programs, including the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and partnerships with music conservatories and universities across Northeast Ohio. Under Mr. Welser-Möst’s leadership, The Cleveland Orchestra has established an ongoing biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall and another at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival. Together, they have appeared in residence at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Japan, and at the Salzburg Festival, where a 2008 residency included five sold-out performances of a staged production of Dvořák’s opera Rusalka. In the United States, Mr. Welser-Möst has established an annual multi-week Cleveland Orchestra residency in Florida under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami and, in 2011, launched a new biennial residency at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival. To the start of this season, The Cleveland Orchestra has performed fourteen world and fifteen United States premieres under Franz Welser-Möst’s direction. Through the Roche Commissions project, he and the Orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, and Matthias Pintscher in partnership with the Lucerne Festival and Carnegie Hall. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-André Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, and Sean Shepherd. Franz Welser-Möst has led a series of opera performances during his tenure

in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the MozartDa Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012. Franz Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in 2010. His long partnership with the company has included acclaimed performances of Tristan and Isolde, a new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director SvenEric Bechtolf, and critically praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac and Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead. During the 2012-13 season, his Vienna performances include Wagner’s Parsifal, Strauss’s Arabella and Ariadne auf Naxos, Puccini’s La Bohème, and Berg’s Wozzeck. Mr. Welser-Möst also maintains an ongoing relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances at the Lucerne Festival and Salzburg Festival, in Tokyo, and in concert at La Scala Milan, as well as leading the Philharmonic’s 2011 New Year’s Day concert, viewed by telecast in seventy countries worldwide; he conducted the New Year’s Day concert again at the start of 2013 and also leads the Philharmonic in a series of concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March 2013. Across a decade-long tenure with the Zurich Opera, culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08), Mr. Welser-Möst led the company in more than 40 new productions and numerous revivals. Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including the Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, Japanese Record Academy Award, and two Grammy nominations. With The Cleveland Orchestra, he has created DVD recordings of live performances of Bruckner symphonies, presented in three 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.

Cleveland Orchestra News

—Crain’s Cleveland Business, March 28



Severance Hall 2012-13

“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.”


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.






Longterm generosity and new commitments by Kulas Foundation and John P. Murphy Foundation recognized through the naming of Severance Hall’s upper lobby and dress circle seating




Two important parts of Severance Hall — the dress circle seating area of the Concert Hall, and the adjoining dress circle lobby — have been named in recognition of longterm support for The Cleveland Orchestra by two extraordinary local organizations: the John P. Murphy Foundation and the Kulas Foundation. Both have long historical relationships with the Orchestra and have made generous new funding commitments to the Sound for the Centennial Campaign, which spans the decade leading to the Orchestra’s 100th anniversary in 2018. “These two foundations represent a special kind of strong, ongoing commitment to the Orchestra — and to the entire Northeast Ohio community,” said Gary Hanson, executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra, in announcing the named spaces. “We are humbled by their generosity and by their faith in the Orchestra’s efforts to transform itself and to harness the passion and power of music to serve more people across the region.” The John P. Murphy Foundation is now permanently honored at Severance Hall with the naming of the John P. Murphy Dress Circle Lobby. The Foundation and its trustees and officers have been generous supporters of The Cleveland Orchestra since 1970, contributing more than $7.5 million. John P. Murphy began serving on the Musical Arts Association board of trustees in 1953 and continued as a trustee until 1968. The Foundation has made a ten-year commitment of funding to The Cleveland Orchestra as part of the comprehensive Sound for the Centennial Campaign. “The John P. Murphy Foundation has long understood the tremendous value that The Cleveland Orchestra holds for all of Northeast Ohio,” says Nancy W. McCann, president of the Foundation’s board of trustees. “Our $3 million commitment to the Sound for the Centennial Campaign is an investment in this community that will help the Orchestra sustain its world-renowned level of artistic excellence while engag-


ing more local residents through transformative and innovative musical programming.” With the naming of the Kulas Dress Circle, the Orchestra permanently honors the Kulas Foundation, which has generously supported The Cleveland Orchestra for three-quarters of a century. With their lifelong passion of music, Elroy J. Kulas and his wife, Fynette, began supporting the Orchestra in 1919, long before they established the Kulas Foundation in 1937. Both later served as active members of the Musical Arts Association board of trustees. In the past three decades, the Kulas Foundation has contributed more than $10 million to The Cleveland Orchestra. Their generosity has helped support education programs as well as the construction and naming of Kulas Plaza at Blossom Music Center to provide updated services for donors. They recently committed $3 million for the Sound for the Centennial Campaign. “We are extraordinarily grateful to Kulas Foundation trustees Richard W. Pogue, Patrick F. McCartan, and Nancy W. McCann for their leadership in working to support The Cleveland Orchestra,” said Gary Hanson. “The Cleveland Orchestra is among Northeast Ohio’s top cultural gems,” continued Nancy McCann. “With our commitment to this Campaign, the Kulas Foundation honors the ensemble’s 100th anniversary and looks forward to the Orchestra’s ongoing role as a strong and vibrant part of this community’s future.”

OrchestraNews George Gund Foundation supports The Cleveland Orchestra’s “Sound for the Centennial Campaign” with $3 million gift




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.

Coming from nearly fifty Northeast Ohio communities, members of the Chorus perform with The Cleveland Orchestra in subscription and Christmas concerts each year. Previous choral experience and sight-reading skills are required. The Blossom Festival Chorus includes many members of the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus and other Northeast Ohio choral groups. It has established itself as a permanent annual part of the summertime Blossom Festival and has sung in more than 100 concerts since its 1968 debut. Both groups are directed by Robert Porco. Auditions for the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus and Blossom Festival Chorus will be held May 20 and 21, by appointment only. Those auditioning are asked to prepare two pieces from the classical literature, one of which should be in a foreign language. Each piece should be approximately two minutes in length.

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. The Youth Chorus collaborates each season in performance with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra. Youth Chorus audition requirements are to pre-

concerts offer a variety of music, old and new, from across three centuries. Beginning with the first performances of a brand-new 21st-century work. And ending with the marvelous melodies and dance-rhythms of an established masterwork in one of Dvořák’s first symphonic hits from the 19th century. In between, a too rarely played concerto by one of the 20th century’s greatest composers. To open the concert, Franz Welser-Möst leads The Cleveland Orchestra in the world premiere performances of Sean Shepherd’s Tuolumne, a work inspired by the black-and-white photography of Ansel Adams. Shepherd is serving as the Orchestra’s seventh Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow. In conjunction with his two-year fellowship, the Orchestra has performed his Wanderlust and commissioned this new piece. In addition, the composer has worked with high school and college students from across Northeast Ohio through discussions and masterclasses. The Orchestra’s world premiere performances this weekend are made possible in part by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Next, guest soloist Frank Peter Zimmermann performs Dmitri Shostakovich’s tantalizing, four-movement Violin Concerto No. 1, created during Stalin’s reign of terror but not performed until 1955, after the Soviet tyrant’s death. Following intermission, we hear the first symphony of Antonín Dvořák to gain widespread popularity. It was also the first to be published, and originally was given printed designation as “Symphony No. 1.” Only later did this wonderful symphony’s earlier siblings get published, and its original “No. 6” ordering was restored. —Eric Sellen

Tuolumne for Large Orchestra composed 2012-13 TUOLUMNE



SHEPHERD born July 1, 1979 Reno, Nevada living in Brooklyn, New York

Severance Hall 2012-13

(pronounced “two ALL um knee” or, as some California locals say it, “to ALL o’ me”) is a word from the Native American language of Miwok. Its meaning is unclear, but is often thought to describe the small group of indigenous people who lived in what is now known as Yosemite National Park. A number of places in the area have taken the appellation on, but for many who know the region, the mighty Tuolumne Meadows spring first to mind. One of the principal natural features of Yosemite, this large subalpine meadow (remember the one Bambi got so excited about? I’ve long thought it could be the very same) is further east of the well-travelled and better-known Yosemite Valley — and much higher at nearly 9,000 feet, near the “top of the park” and Tioga Pass (one of the few roads that crosses the Sierra Nevada for hundreds of miles). One could fairly call this place (not far from my family home a few hours north) my favorite part of the world, without overstating my feelings for the area. It was also a favorite of the American photographer Ansel Adams (1902-84), whose work has occupied my imagination from my first exposure to his landscapes as a child, in books my mother had from her studies in photography. In 1938, Adams took a pack trip into the high wilds of Yosemite with the painter Georgia O’Keeffe, and patrons and friends David McAlpin and Godfrey and Helen Rockefeller, and made three copies of an album of photographs intended as a memento. While contemplating this new piece of music, I chose two images from that album, Plate 4: Untitled (Water Over Rock) and Plate 22: Merced Lake Country, both of which were taken very near the Tuolumne Meadows, and paired them with one of his most iconic images, a view of the eastern Sierra Nevada not far away. The 25-minute piece I wrote is a kind of response to that set of three black-and-white photographs (with each of the three movements corresponding to one image), a meditation on and celebration of both the place and the images. Since good ideas are rarely new ideas (let’s leave bad ideas out of it for now, although I believe the same goes for those), it occurs that one could think of Tuolumne as being somewhere in the neighborhood of Má Vlast, Smetana’s ode to his homeland, and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (but with plenty of About the Music

caveats — keep reading), at least in terms of scope. Each photo is described below: Untitled (Water over Rock): Upon first glance, the spacing of the fanned-out rivulets of water which are cast over a rock in a mountain creek seems nearly perfect, as if each finespun stream had been rationally measured. The scale is difficult to discern. The rock could be inches or feet across, and the elegant shape could even resemble a leaf over which the water flows in all directions, splashing brightly onto the hard creekbed and into the deep blackness of the pool below. Winter Sunrise, Sierra Nevada, from Lone Pine, California, 1944: The brutal terrain of the Eastern Sierra escarpment and Mount Whitney (the highest point in the contiguous US) is in high contrast in this dawn shot. The snow-covered shards of rock appear both as sharp as teeth and as a delicate as tissue paper, with the blinding white snow set in relief by the deep shadows of the range’s dramatic chutes and canyons. A few mists and thin clouds hover. A lower, gentler foothill in the middle ground just in front of the large mountains has not yet been exposed to the dawn light and lies dark and dormant. A patch of sun illuminates a meadow in the foreground of the image, where a single horse, made tiny in the grand scale of the view, grazes among a band of leaf-naked cottonwoods. Merced Lake Country: The main object, a weather-battered pine tree, whose twisting trunk and figure seem to give the image a vertical thrust, occupies the foreground. Across a canyon the mountains behind consist of smooth, rounded granite features pocked by bands of hardy trees and other flora, a familiar sight in the high Sierra. Suggesting both a dancer’s grace and a desperate struggle against the punishing elements, the tree, with branches bare on one side, seems even to evoke a kind of humanity to me: intrepid, tragic, and utterly mysterious. These photos move me, both as representational objects and abstract images. The rocks, trees, clouds, and mountains; the precise, highly controlled play of light and dark. What we are shown, and how it is presented. Although the place is significant — and place has often held a special significance for me (in pieces like Wanderlust, premiered by The Cleveland Orchestra in 2009) — the three movements of Tuolumne are, in my view, best understood as emotional responses to these works of art. I intended neither to illuminate nor describe the photos in a deliberately programmatic or pictorial sense — not Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

These three photos by Ansel Adams move me, both as representational objects and abstract images. The rocks, trees, clouds, and mountains; the precise, highly controlled play of light and dark. The resulting music, however, is best understood as my emotional response to these works of art. I intended neither to illuminate nor describe the photos.

least due to the difficult translation from a spatial and visual medium to a temporal and aural one. Nor did I make an attempt at a companion set. The story of the music, with its twists and turns, peaks and valleys, and shifts of mood and character, may or may not mirror one’s experience of the images. That was by design from the very beginning. Tuolumne is built to stand on its own — but without these photos and without the work of Ansel Adams, it would not exist. Musicians who know his work are quick to point out with pride that Adams trained seriously as a pianist while growing up in San Francisco, and was well into his twenties before he decided to pursue photography, at the time (around 1930) still a relatively new medium, exclusively. It’s simple to imagine how he might have applied the rigors of his musical education to his processes and painstaking perfectionism with the camera and in the darkroom. Aides have described their surprise upon finding not one, but many negatives for his iconic shots. Adams’s rendering techniques, focused as they were, were yet still in service of expression, a process he called visualization: “As with all art, the photograph is not the duplication of visual reality. . . . The visualization of a photograph involves the intuitive search for meaning, shape, form, texture and the projection of the image-format on the subject,” he said in his autobiography. “The creative artist is constantly roving the worlds without, and creating new worlds within.” In Adams’s work, a broad boldness flows effortlessly with his crisp austerity of tone in a way that strikes me as, well, distinctly American. As a young artist who often finds himself confounded by questions of national identity in my own work, I’ve taken comfort in the work of those, like Ansel Adams and Charles Ives, who seem to find their answers close to home. Whether they are the rocks and clouds of California, or the town squares and brass bands of New England, their answers are equally American (as answers to such a question are a simple “yes” or “no”) and, for me, equally correct. I’m often reminded that when the New York patron Alice Tully commissioned French composer Olivier Messiaen for a new work to celebrate the American bicentennial in the early 1970s, he looked not to Philadelphia or Valley Forge (or New York for that matter), but to the rocks and wildlife of southern Utah and wrote Des Canyons aux Étoiles, one of his seminal works. He found the America he most wanted to describe, a Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Shepherd wrote Tuolumne between June 5, 2012, and February 7, 2013, on a commission from The Cleveland Orchestra, supported through the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composers Endowment Fund. Shepherd is serving as the Lewis Young Composer Fellow during the 2011-12 and 2012-13 seasons. The world premiere performances of Tuolumne are also supported in part by funding from the National Endowment for the Arts. This work runs nearly 25 minutes in performance. Shepherd scored it for a large orchestra consisting of 4 flutes (third doubling alto flute, fourth doubling piccolo), 3 oboes and english horn, 3 clarinets and bass clarinet, 3 bassoons and contrabassoon, 6 horns, 4 trumpets (fourth doubling piccolo trumpet), 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangles, cymbals, suspended cymbals, splash cymbal, antique cymbals, nipple gongs, tenor drum, snare drum, brake drum, bass drum, 2 congas, 2 bongos, marimba, vibraphone, 2 xylophones, glockenspiel, tubular bells, bell plate, metal coil, temple blocks, sandpaper blocks, woodblocks, rachet, flexatone, tambourine, castanets, maracas, tam-tam, slapstick, claves, crotales, anvil), harp, piano (doubling celeste), and strings.


license that (those who wrestle with such questions must often remind themselves) all artists are freely afforded. The three movements of Tuolumne are ordered in a basic slow-fast-slow design, and much of the music is virtuosic, owing to the capacities of the magnificent ensemble for which it was written, which I have been privileged to know more intimately as Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow. Many of the musicians are deployed as soloists, starting with flute in the opening bars and the horn soon after. I wrote for a large orchestra partially to explore the coloristic possibilities presented both among and within sections. To one flute, three are soon added in the opening moments, for example, and some 20 minutes later, the solo cello meanders and floats ever higher while the rest of the strings flutter quietly in accompaniment. While there are many powerful tutti moments in between, the piece starts and ends softly, intimate by design, in my largest, most personal piece to date. Tuolumne is dedicated to Franz WelserMĂśst, and to the members of The Cleveland Orchestra. â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Sean Shepherd April 2013

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

Severance Hall 2012-13

can be said to run through all of Shostakovich’s works, it is compassion. Empathy for the dispossessed and defenseless, and rage at their oppressors, animates much of his music — perhaps all of it, as many listeners hear a note of parody even in his pompous “Stalinist” film scores and cantatas. During his life, he made it plain that war and the victims of war were the subjects of many of his works, and it was an open secret that his interest in Jewish music was spurred by Russian anti-Semitism. Today, as accounts of his life and words continue to multiply, it is increasingly apparent that this oftencriticized, often-rehabilitated Soviet composer considered nearly every Soviet citizen, including himself, a victim of oppression. It’s no accident that George Orwell’s nightmarish satire of totalitarianism 1984 was written in 1948, when what little information that leaked out of the Soviet Union revealed a society slipping deeper into paranoia, as the aging Stalin desperately tightened his grip on power. Since one of the dictator’s ploys was to whip up popular sentiment against Jews, Shostakovich would have been taking his life in his hands if he had so much as said in public that he was working on a song cycle called From Jewish Folk Poetry, or a violin concerto inspired by a great Russian Jewish violinist, David Oistrakh. In fact, these works weren’t performed in public until after Stalin’s death in 1953, and even then the concerto’s opus number had to be changed from 77 to 99 to disguise its date of composition. In Russian music from Rimsky-Korsakov to Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev, imagery of the night means soft breezes, moonlight, and eroticism. Not so in this concerto’s opening Nocturne. After cellos and basses begin the work with a tortuous solo line (anticipating the repeating bass of the third movement’s passacaglia), depression and anxiety haunt the soloist’s somber monologue. The orchestral background, dark-colored and harmonically slow-moving, is painted with the deep timbres of contrabassoon, bass clarinet, and string bass; the tortuous theme appears there often, struggling with its chains. The cool, impassive sound of a celesta curls icy fingers around the violin melody at mid-movement and echoes the tortuous theme at the very end. The unbearable tension of the Nocturne finds a spasm of release in the sarcastic Scherzo. Ian MacDonald, in his book About the Music

perfect harmony The Cleveland Orchestra. Tucker Ellis.


The New Shostakovich, heard in this movement “the composer, beset by fools and knaves, scorned by his inferiors, and forced to demean himself with fatuous articles and speeches.” Certainly the composer’s personal motif, the notes D, E-flat, C, B (in German notation, the notes D-S-C-H, standing for D. Schostakowitsch) makes the first of many appearances in his works here, barked out, loud and clear, by the soloist in the second section. The “fools and knaves” emit vulgar burps on the same deep instruments that created the oppressive atmosphere of the Nocturne. For the soloist, the fiddling style of Jewish bands in Eastern Europe alternates with phrases of deliberate banality in a witch’s brew of vitality, anguish, and fury. This music dances, but on a chain. The Passacaglia movement opens in an atmosphere of imperial Stalinist pomp, with horns and timpani pounding out menacing fanfares over the stark, angular ground bass. As in any passacaglia, the bass persists, repeating throughout the piece; here it may represent the implacable state, deaf to the eloquent pleas of the solo violin. In this context, it is a chilling moment when, at the movement’s climax, the violin itself takes up the bass theme in bare, harsh-sounding octaves. Has the composer learned to love Big Brother? The rest of the movement is one long, disconsolate diminuendo, at the end of which the violin’s melody breaks into scattered fragments, in the manner of the funeral march in Beethoven’s “Eroica” Symphony. From his teacher Glazunov’s Violin Concerto in A minor, Shostakovich borrowed the idea of linking the last two movements by means of a meditative solo cadenza. Here the violin begins by trying on borrowed clothes — the menacing fanfare that began the Passacaglia — but soon the figuration begins to suggest the D-S-C-H motif, and folkdance rhythms invigorate the music, until the violin is shouting out the composer’s motif in slashing, impudent chords. As the cadenza reaches a peak of excitement, the orchestra bursts into a sassy dance, beginning with some klezmer-style riffs for the solo violin and clarinet. Burlesca means simply a rustic dance, but in this sparkling rondo (no more gloom from the bass instruments) there are more references than ever to Jewish scales and melodies. Revenge is sweet as the once-terrifying Passacaglia bass is handed over to xylophone and flute — and later to the soloist and to the horns — for mockery and derision.

At a Glance Shostakovich wrote his first violin concerto in 1945-48, but kept the score private. He revised it slightly in 1955 (after Stalin’s death in 1953). The work was premiered on October 29, 1955, by the Leningrad Philharmonic with violinist David Oistrakh. It was originally published as Opus 99 to disguise that it had been written earlier during a period when the composer was officially under censure by the Soviet government; the original Opus 77 number was later restored. This work runs about 35 minutes in performance. Shostakovich scored it for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 3 oboes and english horn, 3 clarinets (third doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons and contrabassoon, 4 horns, tuba, timpani, percussion (tambourine, tam-tam, xylophone), 2 harps, celesta, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented this concerto as part of the 1984 Blossom Festival, conducted by Vladimir Ashkenazy and with Boris Belkin as the soloist. The most recent performances were at Severance Hall in May 2003, with guest conductor Osmo Vänskä and violinist Christian Tetzlaff.

Symphony No. 6 in D major, Opus 60 composed 1880 IF AN YONE DOUBT S



DVOŘÁK born September 8, 1841 Nelahozeves, Bohemia died May 1, 1904 Prague

Severance Hall 2012-13

the value of persistence, let him or her consider the case of Antonín Dvořák, a violist in the orchestra of the Provisional Theater in Prague, who doggedly produced symphonies, string quartets, songs, and much else with little recognition until 1875, when a juror named Johannes Brahms, working for the Austrian State Stipend, looked at a package of Dvořák’s compositions and declared the 34-year-old composer “a very talented man.” Things happened fast after that. The renowned critic Eduard Hanslick, a Brahms partisan, took up Dvořák’s cause as well. Brahms’s publisher Simrock brought out several Dvořák works, and commissioned a set of Slavonic Dances for piano duet modeled on Brahms’s popular Hungarian Dances. These proved to be such runaway bestsellers that Dvořák’s name became a household word, seemingly on every piano rack in the Austrian empire — and beyond. Orchestras and conductors clamored for music by him. The composer himself could hardly believe his good fortune, after so much toil in obscurity. His letters from that time are full of wonder at new experiences. In September 1879, unable to be in all places at once, Dvořák missed the fi rst performance of his Slavonic Rhapsody No. 3 in Berlin, but he was able to hear the redoubtable Hans Richter conduct it in Vienna shortly thereafter. Dvořák wrote that, following an “incomparably fine” performance, “I had to promise to come to the performance of the Serenade and had to assure the Philharmonic that I would send them a symphony for the next season. The day after the concert, Richter gave a banquet at his house, in my honor so to speak, to which he invited all the Czech members of the orchestra. It was a grand evening which I shall not easily forget as long as I live.” Dvořák began sketching the promised symphony the following summer, and eventually wrote at the end of the sketch, “Thanks be to God! Ended at 8:30 in the evening of September 20, 1880.” Finishing the orchestration on October 15, he set four copyists to work making the fair copy to rush to Richter in Vienna. But the Philharmonic dragged its feet in scheduling a performance, and so the premiere eventually and instead went to the Prague Philharmonic, led by Adolf Čech, in March About the Music


1881. The piece was rapturously received, and the Czech-flavored furiant scherzo had to be repeated. Dvořák decided to let stand the piece’s dedication to Richter, who finally conducted the work in London in 1882, by which time, because Dvořák’s music was such a hot property, the performance was not even a local premiere. This was the first of Dvořák’s symphonies to see print, and the public’s ignorance of his five previous efforts in the genre remained so deep and persistent that there are still plenty of people walking around today who first got to know this music as Dvořák’s “Symphony No. 1.” Listening to it makes clear that, at the time, Dvořák enjoyed not only Brahms’s patronage but his artistic influence as well. The Czech composer was certainly not alone in that, but still, the opening bars of the symphony’s first movement are so wonderfully characteristic of Dvořák’s rhythmic verve and appealing turn of phrase that it is startling to hear him take this blithe material and immediately begin worrying it à la Brahms. However, one can appreciate how good Dvořák is at “doing” Brahms while one waits for these lovely tunes to return in their

original form. Dvořák, although a violist himself, nevertheless had a way with a cello tune, and two beauties emerge among the many attractive ideas in this movement. The development section of the movement is first mysterious, then playful, but always colorful. Eventually, the themes return pretty much in order, and no less welcome for that, before the lively coda displays them in yet more new guises. A soft modulating passage, in the manner of the same point in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, slides us gently down from bright D major into the gentle world of B-flat major for the second movement Adagio, a slice of music plainly inspired by the expressive breadth of the Bonn master’s great movements in that same tempo. But ultimately the movement is memorable more for its sensitive scoring and pure-hearted Dvořákian lyricism than for its Beethovenian forte interruptions. On the other hand, Dvořák is the sole master of all he surveys in the irresistible third movement scherzo, an elaboration of the Slavonic dance rhythms that made him famous — specifically, the furiant, with its distinctive rhythmic play of twos and threes. The movement’s Trio section ventures far away from the big dance to a pastoral landscape with a lone, piping flute — a favorite Dvořák genre scene, sounding even more tender here because the flute is a piccolo. The pianissimo opening of the finale is so similar to the same place in Brahms’s Second Symphony — also in D, published just three years before Dvořák composed this piece — it is almost as if the composer is saying, as Brahms did when somebody pointed out a resemblance between his First Symphony and Beethoven’s Ninth, “Every jackass notices that!” And Dvořák might also go on to say, “Now, listen to how I do it” — because the Dvořák way isn’t the Brahms way. It’s more straight-ahead, tuneful, and funny. And when it’s time to throw the themes together contrapuntally in this sonata-form movement, there isn’t a hint of Brahmsian fretting; instead, the butcher’s son from Nelahozeves just grins and stirs the pot with his muscular arms. The movement comes to a satisfying, full-circle close with the brass’s grand re-statement of the opening theme.

At a Glance Dvo řák wrote his Sixth Symphony in 1880. The first performance took place in Prague on March 25, 1881, with Adolf Čech conducting. The United States premiere was given by Theodore Thomas and the New York Philharmonic Society on January 6, 1883. It was the first of Dvo řák’s symphonies to be published, in Berlin in 1882, and was thus issued as “Symphony No. 1.” The printed score was dedicated to conductor Hans Richter. (Dvo řák’s symphonies were renumbered in the chronological order of their composition in the 1950s.) This symphony runs about 40 minutes in performance. Dvo řák scored it for 2 flutes and piccolo, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented Dvo řák’s Symphony No. 6 in January 1946 at Severance Hall concerts conducted by Erich Leinsdorf. The most recent performances at Severance Hall were led by Alan Gilbert in March 2007. Steven Smith conducted a performance with the Orchestra as part of the 2001 Blossom Festival.

Frank Peter Zimmermann German violinist Frank Peter Zimmermann regularly performs in the major concert venues and international music festivals of Europe, North and South America, Japan, and Australia. His Cleveland Orchestra debut was in January 1987, and he most recently appeared here in February 2011. Born in 1965 in Duisburg, Germany, Frank Peter Zimmermann started playing violin when he was five and performed his first orchestral concert at age ten. He completed his studies with Saschko Gawriloff, Valery Gradov, and Herman Krebbers. Highlights of Mr. Zimmermann’s recent schedule include residencies with the Bamberg Symphony and New York Philharmonic, and concerts with the Berlin Philharmonic, Boston Symphony Orchestra, Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Sydney Symphony Orchestra, and the Vienna Philharmonic. As an advocate for new music, Frank Peter Zimmermann gave the world premiere of Augusta Read Thomas’s violin concerto, Juggler in Paradise, in 2009. He has also performed the world premieres of Brett Dean’s The Lost Art of Letter Writing, and en sourdine by Matthias Pintscher (later presenting the United States premiere with The Cleveland Orchestra and Franz Welser-Möst in 2003). With his recital and chamber music partners, pianists Piotr Anderszewski, Emanuel Ax, and Enrico Pace, Mr. Zimmermann has performed throughout the world. In 2007, he formed Trio Zimmermann with violist Antoine Tamestit and cellist Christian Poltéra; the ensemble appears throughout Europe, including performances at the Edinburgh and Salzburg festivals. Many of Mr. Zimmermann’s recordings have received widespread recognition and international prizes. For Sony Classical, he has recorded the violin concertos of Britten, Bruch, Busoni, Szymanowski, and Tchaikovsky, as well as sonatas by Bach and Busoni. His EMI Classics discography includes nearly all the major violin concertos as well as many recital works. He can also be heard in Ligeti’s Violin Concerto (Teldec Classics) and in the Sibelius Violin Concerto (Ondine). Trio Zimmermann has recorded works by Beethoven, Mozart, and Schubert for BIS Records, and Mr. Zimmermann and Heinrich Schiff have a widely-praised album of duos for violin and cello on ECM Records. Frank Peter Zimmermann’s awards include the 1990 Premio del Accademia Musicale Chigiana, 1994 Rheinischer Kulturpreis, 2002 Musikpreis of the city of Duisburg, and the Bundesverdienstkreuz 1 Klasse der Bundesrepublik Deutschland.

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.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s catalog of recordings continues to grow. The newest DVD features Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony recorded live at Severance Hall under the direction of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst in 2010 and released in May 2011. And, released in 2012, Dvořák’s opera Rusalka on CD, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival. Writing of the Rusalka performances, the reviewer for London’s Sunday Times praised the performance as “the most spellbinding account of Dvořák’s miraculous score I have ever heard, either in the theatre or on record. . . . I doubt this music can be better played than by the Clevelanders, the most ‘European’ of the American orchestras, with wind and brass soloists to die for and a string sound of superlative warmth and sensitivity.” Other recordings released in recent years include two under the baton of Pierre Boulez and a third album of Mozart piano concertos with Mitsuko Uchida, whose first Cleveland Orchestra Mozart album won a Grammy Award in 2011. Visit the Cleveland Orchestra Store for the latest and best Cleveland Orchestra recordings and DVDs.

11001 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44106



the world’s most beautiful concert halls, Severance Hall has been home to The Cleveland Orchestra since its opening on February 5, 1931. After that first concert, a Cleveland newspaper editorial stated: “We believe that Mr. Severance intended to build a temple to music, and not a temple to wealth; and we believe it is his intention that all music lovers should be welcome there.” John Long Severance (president of the Musical Arts Association, 1921-1936) and his wife, Elisabeth, donated most of the funds necessary to erect this magnificent building. Designed by Walker & Weeks, its elegant



Georgian exterior was constructed to harmonize with the classical architecture of other prominent buildings in the University Circle area. The interior of the building reflects a combination of design styles, including Art Deco, Egyptian Revival, Classicism, and Modernism. An extensive renovation, restoration, and expansion of the facility was completed in January 2000. In addition to serving as the home of The Cleveland Orchestra for concerts and rehearsals, the building is rented by a wide variety of local organizations and private citizens for performances, meetings, and gala events each year.

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
