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 56-57). 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.

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.

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.”

In May, The Cleveland Orchestra launches its “At Home” neighborhood residency program with an intensive week of performances and activities in the Gordon Square Arts District on Cleveland’s west side. All of the events, May 11-17, will be free and open to the public. Leaders and representatives from Gordon Square businesses and associations have partnered with the Orchestra to plan and host the week’s activities. These new “At Home” residencies are being designed to immerse the Orchestra in local neighborhoods through a festival-like week of performances and presentations, in order to bring the Orchestra’s musicians in closer context, contact, and connection with the Northeast Ohio community. “The citizens of this region created The Cleveland Orchestra,” says executive director Gary Hanson, “and continue to support the Orchestra’s music-making and its education programs at a higher level than any other metropolitan area in the country. In thanks for that faithful support, as a way to give back to the community, and as part of our ongoing commitment to Northeast Ohio, we are working to create a real-life everyday connection with neighborhoods throughout the region.” The Cleveland Orchestra’s “At Home” neighborhood residency program is supported



OrchestraNews Mellon Foundation grants $2.5 million to Cleveland Orchestra for artistic initiatives




The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has awarded a new $2.5 million grant to The Cleveland Orchestra to support artistically ambitious programming with special emphasis on opera and ballet. The gift — the largest to the Orchestra in the Foundation’s history — supports the type of programming and partnerships that challenge and expand the Orchestra and help distinguish the ensemble from its peers. “We are grateful to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for supporting artistic initiatives as part of our ongoing transformation,” said Gary Hanson, the Orchestra’s executive director, in making the announcement. “Of national philanthropic foundations, the Mellon Foundation is among the most important in the support of symphony orchestras. We deeply appreciate their recognition and endorsement of the work of The Cleveland Orchestra.” The Mellon Foundation award will support opera performances in the next three seasons at Severance Hall, beginning with semi-staged performances of Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen in May 2014, led by music director Franz Welser-Möst. In addition, the grant also supports world-renowned guest artists in longterm collaborations with The Cleveland Orchestra, such as conductor Ton Koopman, pianist Mitsuko Uchida, and music director laureate Christoph von Dohnányi. The New York-based Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has a long history of supporting The Cleveland Orchestra and of funding efforts to reach new listeners. Its first gift to the ensemble was in 1977, and a grant of $800,000 in 2009 supported the then-new “Fridays@7”series as well as performances of opera, chamber music, and collaborations with Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet. The new Mellon gift and its challenge component through June 2016 add momentum to current fundraising efforts, which include comprehensive commitments to annual giving and legacy gifts to the Orchestra’s endowment.

OrchestraNews Friday Morning concertgoers can enjoy free bus service The Women’s Committee of The Cleveland Orchestra is again sponsoring free bus service to each of the Orchestra’s Friday Morning concerts this season. The buses depart from locations in Akron, Beachwood, Brecksville, and Westlake. A bus pass is required, and can be reserved along with concert tickets through the Severance Hall Ticket Office in person or by calling 216-231-1111. (Donations to help defray the cost of this bus service are also welcome and can be given through the ticket office). The season’s final Friday Morning concert is on May 3, with Ton Koopman leading a concert of works by Haydn, Mozart, and Fischer, and featuring Cleveland Orchestra principal timpani Paul Yancich as soloist.

The Cleveland Orchestra notes the death on the morning of April 16 of retired Orchestra trumpeter David Zauder, in Colorado surrounded by his family. David was hired by George Szell in 1958, joining the trumpet section of The Cleveland Orchestra. 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 his service as a member of the Orchestra was David’s extraordinary tenure as the Orchestra’s personnel manager, a post he held for 25 seasons, through all of Lorin Maazel’s and much of Christoph von Dohnányi’s music directorships. He had earlier served as assistant 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, 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 Zauder was the recipient of the Orchestra’s Distinguished Service Award in 1997. His great humanity and his love of life were shaped by his personal history as a Holocaust survivor. David Zauder 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.

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.

Life, Death & Renewal

H AY D N ’ S “ T H E S E A S O N S ” is a work of great simplicity and startling depth. Its arching storyline across the year of a village — and the story’s underlying relation to the recurring cycles of nature, of birth, life, and death — bring forth universal perspectives within everyday matters. Haydn’s masterful detailing of the score, from the deft imitation of the sounds of nature and animals to the wondrous scene painting that marks the beginning of each season, brings clear joy and recognition to new listeners — and new insights for those returning to it from years of acquaintance. Three soloists act as our journey’s guides: a father and daughter, plus a young farmer, who sometimes don other roles. Their interactions with the chorus (in various guises) amidst the evolving heather and heath, weather and whimsy created by the orchestra, provide us an evening of plentiful abundance. And a thankfullness for life — for life’s ever-turning cycles, and life’s seasons of work and repast, creation and joy. This week’s concerts mark the final performances of the full Cleveland Orchestra TH Chorus this season — a season in which we have celebrated this ensemble’s remarkable sixty years of artistry. Created ANNIVERSARY SEASON at the behest of George Szell in 1952, the Chorus has sung in countless concerts here at Severance Hall and on tour CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA and recordings with The Cleveland Orchestra. Their musiCHORUS cal craft and artistry are elegant partners to the Orchestra’s own excellence. Each chorus member volunteers their time and devotion to share their music-making with all of us each year. This season also marks Robert Porco’s fifteenth leading the Chorus — with hearty thanks from all of us for his exacting, untiring, and inspiring work.

Severance Hall 2012-13

of his visits to London in the 1790s, it would have been easy enough for Joseph Haydn to rest on his laurels. He had labored for decades in obscurity, but this vote of confidence from the English public enhanced his international stature by several magnitudes and shored up the financial confidence of a composer who had spent the bulk of his career as a servant at the pleasure of his aristocratic patron. Even so, Haydn was eager to accept new creative challenges after he returned to Vienna in 1795. The London sojourn had exposed him to stirring encounters with Handel’s oratorios (in particular, Israel in Egypt and Messiah). A large-scale commemoration of Handel given in 1791 in Westminster Abbey in particular left a deep impression. Haydn “was struck as if he had been put back to the beginning of his studies and had known nothing up to that moment,” an early biographer recalled him remarking. “He meditated on every note and drew from those most learned scores the essence of true musical grandeur.” It wasn’t the music alone that Haydn found so awe-inspiring, but Handel’s remarkable ability to move a diverse audience as well. “I want to write a work that will give permanent fame to my name in the world,” he was reported to have said. So when the opportunity to try his own hand at English-style oratorio arose, it’s not surprising that Haydn eagerly took it on. Thus the composer so often regarded as the founding father of the instrumental genres of the symphony and the string quartet crowned his glorious career with a final flowering of choral music. While Beethoven would incorporate the human voice into his final symphony, Haydn’s symphonic odyssey took him to a limit of expression beyond which he ventured directly into the oratorio. Johann Peter Salomon (1745-1815), the impresario who had organized Haydn’s lucrative series of London concerts, provided him with an English libretto recounting the biblical creation story — a libretto allegedly once offered to the old master Handel himself (which may have added a competitive thrill to Haydn’s undertaking). The decisive catalyst was provided in Vienna by the Baron Gottfried van Swieten (1733-1803), the music-loving diplomat, librarian, and artistic busybody who had earlier enlisted Mozart to retool several of Handel’s oratorios About the Music


The Scottish poet James Thomson, whose volume of poetry The Seasons formed a basis for creating the libretto to Haydn’s musical work.


in a style more attractive to contemporary Viennese audiences (in order to present them for the first time in the Hapsburg capital). Van Swieten tailored the English libretto into a version suitable for Haydn, who set about composing The Creation in simultaneous German and English versions. In the 1770s, Haydn had had mixed success with his foray into the Italian-style oratorio in his Il ritorno di Tobia (“The Return of Tobia”). But The Creation, cast on a monumental scale in three parts, signaled an entirely new level of ambition, costing the composer great effort accompanied by a surprising degree of self-doubt. Nevertheless, The Creation earned Haydn even higher praise than before; its premiere in April 1798 in Vienna in fact marked the climactic triumph of his career. And the process of writing The Creation opened up new floodgates of inspiration and led soon thereafter to the idea of a companion oratorio, Die Jahreszeiten (in German) or The Seasons (in English), set, like The Creation, to both German and English versions of the libretto so that Haydn’s large English following could experience the work in their native language. Along with these late-period oratorios, Haydn continued with this outpouring of choral works in a series of Masses. All of these works combine to present a grand summation of Haydn’s artistry, including his mastery of the orchestra. By the time he began The Seasons, the sixty-something composer’s own longevity had made him a statistical anomaly for this era. He had been born into the waning years of the Baroque and lived through the Enlightenment reforms introduced by Emperor Joseph II as well as the first stage of the old order’s reaction to the revolutionary changes unfolding in France. Napoleon was consolidating power and already campaigning in the Middle East and would soon invade the Austrian Empire itself. Haydn died just a few months after Vienna fell a second time to Napoleon’s Grande Armée in 1809. Perhaps the unsettling awareness of a changing world that formed the bass line of life during Haydn’s last decades encouraged thoughts of a countervailing stability, as represented by the recurring patterns of nature. Even after composing The Creation — in which Haydn had undertaken to depict nothing less than the majesty of the cosmos — his gift for representing nature in music was hardly exhausted. Like its predecessor, The Seasons is a testament to Haydn’s evolution as an artist and to the formidable scope of his genius. The score fuses his appreciation for the rhetorical brilliance of the high Baroque with the Classical style Haydn himself had been so instrumental in shaping — all in the service of the Enlightenment-inspired optimism that radiates through his mature works. The Seasons, moreover, anticipates something of the sensibility of the new century being born. The sensational reception of About the Music

The Creation, however, was not extended to The Seasons when it premiered in 1801, and ever since it has tended to be eclipsed by the earlier oratorio’s reputation. THE TEXT

While van Swieten began with a pre-existing English libretto for The Creation, in the case of The Seasons he himself designed the text using a popular, epic-length work by the Scottish poet and playwright James Thomson (1700-1748). Van Swieten inserted some extraneous sources as well into the final part. Beginning with Winter, Thomson originally wrote separate poems for each season (not in sequence) and then gathered and revised these as the epic The Seasons, totaling well over 4,000 lines of blank verse. It became popular throughout 18th-century Europe. (Handel may even have read the poems as they were being published.) From this mass of material, van Swieten culled a few dramatic episodes sure to trigger Haydn’s musical imagination and simplified the verse. He also invented a trio of characters to be represented by the soloists: Simon, a farmer (bass); his daughter, Hanne (soprano); and a young farm worker, Lukas (tenor). These aren’t fully characterized individuals but human archetypes who contribute observations about nature and its effects to complement the ongoing commentary of the chorus. Hanne and Lukas play a pair of sweethearts in the “Summer” section. The rapport between Haydn and van Swieten, a sometime-composer himself, was by no means smooth sailing. The librettist felt no restraint in offering musical recommendations to a composer of Haydn’s stature as to how best to set his text. And van Swieten made sure to include an abundance of animal imagery (leaping lambs, milk-white steeds, and, most notoriously, croaking frogs) so as to capitalize on Haydn’s widely celebrated gift for uncannily eliciting pictorial detail in sound. To a colleague who prepared a piano reduction of the score for rehearsal, Haydn indiscreetly complained about the imitation of frogs at the end of the “Summer” section, scribbling a note that he “was forced to write this Frenchified trash.” Van Swieten got wind of this harsh critique, according to Haydn scholar H.C. Robbins Landon, though a potentially lasting break with the composer was apparently mended. For contemporary audiences, the text derived from Thomson’s poem can seem stilted, though Thomson wielded great Severance Hall 2012-13

influence among his own contemporaries and into the 19th century. Some of the difficulty has to do with van Swieten’s own problematic mangling of the original in his German version and in his “retranslation” of the latter back to English to fit the music. One novelty of the way Haydn introduced the score is that he insisted it be published in a bilingual edition, with the German and English versions side by side. THE MEANING AND THE MUSIC

Still, van Swieten designed a structure of neatly proportioned contrasts that served the composer well. “Spring” presents a paean to nature that gravitates toward praise of the Creator, anticipating the utopian vision reached by the end of the work. But “Summer” introduces a contrastingly conflicting portrayal of nature as both triumphant and endangering, with its climactic thunderstorm at last yielding to idyllic repose. The remaining two seasons mirror this pattern — the unified focus on the bounty of the harvest in “Autumn” gives way to the divergent moods found in “Winter.” And the ambivalence of this last season is especially multilayered. Human community provides shelter from the bleakness outdoors, but with the triumph of Winter, “silent fear oppresses nature all around.” The oratorio’s focus subsequently turns toward the spiritual realm to find meaning in this endless cycle of birth and death. “Often, in pastoral music of the 18th century, the disruption of an idyll is represented merely as a misunderstanding between lovers or the arrival of bad weather — tempests, storms, lightning and thunder — soon followed by the return of calm,” writes Maynard Solomon in his insightful book Late Beethoven. He draws attention to the philosophical significance of Haydn’s approach to this pastoral subject matter: “At the loftiest level of this process, Haydn’s oratorios The Seasons and The Creation are versions of a rational Enlightenment pastoral that locates harmonious patterns everywhere in a divine hierarchical arrangement of the universe.” Van Swieten also supplied brief descriptions for what the purely instrumental introductions to each season should conjure. In part one, devoted to “Spring,” the first music we hear is, surprisingly, of a gloomy G-minor cast, suggesting “the passage from Winter to Spring.” The richness of invention in this prelude announces that Haydn intends to draw fully on his combination of craft and imagination as a symphonist.

About the Music

At a Glance Haydn composed The Seasons, one of his last major works, between 1799 and 1801, during a period when he was dealing with a decline in his health. The libretto (with versions in English and in German) had been assembled by Gottfried van Swieten, utilizing some parts of a volume of poetry by James Thomson. The composer led the first performance, for a select audience of aristocratic patrons, on April 24, 1801, and the general public premiere on May 29, both in Vienna. The Seasons runs about 140 minutes in performance (plus intermission). Haydn scored it for 2 flutes (first doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion (triangle, bass drum, cymbals), fortepiano, and strings, plus mixed chorus and three soloists (soprano, tenor, and bass). The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Haydn’s The Seasons during the 1922-23 season. Robert Shaw led performances during the 1965-66 season, at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in New York. The only other Cleveland Orchestra performances took place in October 1998, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst.


Gottfried van Swieten, who created the libretto for Haydn’s The Seasons.


terms of the Classical orchestra, the ensemble is remarkably expanded and includes a sizeable brass presence. This vividly energetic music stands as a microcosm of the ever-changing face of nature itself. And right from the beginning, Haydn establishes a fundamental tension that underlies The Seasons as a whole — nature’s bountiful and life-enhancing dimension is juxtaposed with a reminder of its darker power. The human voice at last enters as each of the soloists hails the departure of Winter. For all the variety of his moment-by-moment musical gestures, Haydn is a careful architect of the cumulative effect, always reinforcing the unity of his design over the large scale. The gentle, lilting first chorus is only the first stage of a gradual crescendo of joy registering the effects of Spring’s reawakening. This continues through Simon’s aria of the husbandman (here Haydn quotes the famous tune from the Andante movement of his “Surprise” Symphony No. 94, changing the surprise to the appearance of a “whistling” piccolo) and the marvelous catalog of creatures sung by the trio, and right up to the invocation of the divinity at the end of “Spring.” With a dramatically abrupt shift in tonality (from D to B-flat major), Haydn moreover establishes another significant pattern. Focus on the manifestations of nature in the here and now is enlarged to embrace a cosmic, deistic perspective. It’s often been noticed that The Seasons provided Beethoven with a model for aspects of his Sixth Symphony (nicknamed “Pastoral”) — especially the storm sequence in “Summer” — but this harmonic gesture also looks ahead to a similarly awe-inspiring moment and shift of focus in the finale of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. The introduction to “Summer” also starts in a minor key (C minor) and gives us a picture of night yielding to dawn. This occasions a splendid instance of Haydn’s signature musical pictorialism (a full century before Richard Strauss’s primal sunrise at the start of Also Sprach Zarathustra) — the glorious arrival of the new day, which forms the first big climax of this second part. Yet however much this passage makes us think of “programmatic” musical feats of the later Romantics, Haydn literally puts his music first. An often-noted feature of The Seasons is that the musical image usually precedes the verbal one. Even more, Haydn’s music generates feelings of tension and release that have an inherent logic of their own, as we experience in the sluggish but anxious moments presaging the gathering of energy for the storm’s outburst and the newfound sense of peace as the day draws to its quiet close. Nature’s patterns and cycles, in a sense, almost seem to mimic musical ones. Beginning with “the farmer’s delight in the abundant harvest,” “Autumn” includes some of the most memorable genre painting of The Seasons. About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

Despite its pious ode to labor, this is perhaps the most pagan of the oratorio’s four parts. Like a symphonic scherzo, it certainly contains the most unbridled revelry, and the fun begins in earnest with the innocent pleasure of the lovers, continuing on into the sequences of hunting and drinking. Thomson’s depiction of this hunting episode in his original poem was actually intended as a passionate protest against the practice, lamenting our capacity “to joy at anguish, and delight in blood.” For his part, Haydn creates the musical equivalent of a Dutch master’s lively detail in evoking the fall of the shot bird and, in the quickening string figurations juxtaposed with the hunting calls of horns, the stag’s futile flight; the final wine-fueled carousel sets off an intensifying whirl of counterpoint. With yet another C-minor prelude — now suggesting “the dense fog which marks the beginning” of “Winter” — The Seasons launches its most revelatory section. As in Thomson’s poem, the cycle of seasons is seen to project an allegory of the stages of human life and its inevitable demise. What does all this gathered experience amount to? Haydn, looking back over his own career, seems to have included in The Seasons an element of self-portraiture. The genre scene in the inn (in which Haydn sets texts interpolated by van Swieten that were not in Thomson’s poem) offers momentary respite through the patterns generated by art, but the story told in “Winter” must return to the inescapable reality of our mortal nature. By contrast, The Creation had concluded with Adam and Eve still in Paradise, their fall still in the future. The tonal meandering of Simon’s final aria — a single voice left to contemplate life’s dissolution — conveys an extraordinary restlessness, into which Haydn introduces dramatically resonant silences. At last a resolution is achieved in the exultant concluding trio and double chorus. The journey has come full circle, but — as in a symphonic recapitulation, following a richly worked-through development — the perspective is new, hard won, sublime. Haydn’s love of nature expressed throughout The Seasons reaffirms his faith in a beneficent order behind its patterns, to which his music now gives reverberant voice. —Thomas May © 2013

The cycle of seasons is seen to project an allegory of the stages of human life and its inevitable demise. What did all this gathered experience amount to? Indeed, Haydn, looking back over his own career, seems to have included in The Seasons an element of self-portraiture. And the story in “Winter” returns to the inescapable reality of our mortal nature.

simon Schon eilet froh der Ackersmann zur Arbeit auf das Feld, in langen Furchen schreitet er dem Pfluge flötend nach. In abgemess’nem Gange dann wirft er den Samen aus, den birgt der Acker treu und reift ihn bald zur gold’nen Frucht.

Already the husbandman cheerfully hastens to his work in the field, striding in the long furrows behind his plow, whistling. Then with measured step he casts the seed, which the soil faithfully conceals and soon nurtures to golden fruit.


lukas Der Landmann hat sein Werk vollbracht und weder Müh’ noch Fleiss gespart: Den Lohn erwartet er aus Händen der Natur, und fleht den Himmel an.

The farmer has finished his work, sparing neither toil nor industry; he looks for his reward from the hands of Nature, and prays for it to heaven.


lukas, then chorus Sei nun gnädig, milder Himmel! Öffne dich und träufe Segen über unser Land herab!

Be gracious now, kindly Heaven! Open, and pour forth blessings down upon our land!

Summer No. 9 — INTRODUCTION AND RECITATIVE (The introduction depicts dawn.)

lukas In grauem Schleier rückt heran das sanfte Morgenlicht; mit lahmen Schritten weicht vor ihm die träge Nacht zurück. Zu düst’ren Höhen flieht der Leichenvögel blinde Schar; ihr dumpfer Klageton beklemmt das bange Herz nicht mehr.


Against a gray veil, the soft light of dawn approaches; with faltering steps the sluggish night retreats before it. To dark caverns flees the blind flock of funeral birds; their gloomy note oppresses the fearful heart no more. The day heralds its coming; with sharp sounds it summons to renewed work the rested farmer.

Des Tages Herold meldet sich; mit scharfem Laute rufet er zu neuer Tätigkeit den ausgeruhten Landmann auf. No. 10 — ARIA AND RECITATIVE


The cheerful shepherd now gathers his happy flocks around him; to rich pastures on green heights he slowly drives them forth. Then he stands looking to the east, leaning on his staff, to see the first ray of the sun, which he is awaiting.

Der munt’re Hirt versammelt nun die frohen Herden um sich her, zur fetten Weid’ auf grünen Höh’n treibet er sie langsam fort. Nach Osten blickend steht er dann, auf seinem Stabe hingelehnt, zu seh’n den ersten Sonnenstrahl, welchem er entgegen harrt.

hanne Die Morgenröte bricht hervor, wie Rauch verflieget das leichte Gewolk, der Himmel pranget im hellen Azur, der Berge Gipfel im feurigen Gold.

The rosy dawn breaks forth; like smoke the thin clouds disperse. The heavens shine in bright azure, the mountaintops in fiery gold.

hanne All that the blossoms of spring once promised, all that the warmth of summer ripened, is revealed in the fullness of autumn to the happy country man.

Was durch seine Blüte der Lenz zuerst versprach, was durch seine Wärme der Sommer reifen hiess, zeigt der Herbst in Fülle dem frohen Landmann jetzt.

lukas Den reichen Vorrat fährt er nun auf hochbelad’nen Wagen ein. Kaum fasst der weiten Scheune Raum, was ihm sein Feld hervorgebracht.

The rich harvest he now brings in on high-laden wagons. The broad storerooms scarcely hold what his field has produced.

simon Sein heit’res Auge blickt umher, es misst den aufgetürmten Segen ab, und Freude strömt in seine Brust.

His cheerful eye looks round, measuring off the piled-up harvest, and joy streams in his heart.


simon So lohnet die Natur den Fleiss; ihn ruft, ihn lacht sie an, ihn muntert sie durch Hoffnung auf, ihm steht sie willig bei; ihm wirket sie mit voller Kraft.

Thus Nature rewards Industry; she summons it, smiles upon it, bolsters it with hope, and stands by it willingly; she works on it with her full strength.

hanne, lukas Von dir, o Fleiss, kommt alles Heil. Die Hütte, die uns schirmt, die Wolle, die uns deckt, die Speise, die uns nährt, ist deine Gab’, ist dein Geschenk.

From thee, oh Industry, come all good things: The cottage that protects us, the wool that covers us, the food that nourishes us, is your gift and your bounty.

hanne, lukas, simon Industry, oh noble Industry! From thee come all good things.

O Fleiss, o edler Fleiss! Von dir kommt alles Heil!

hanne Lo, how to the hazel bush there the speedy boys hasten. On every branch the merry troops of youngsters are swinging, and from the shaken bushes falls, like a shower of hail, the ripened fruit.

Seht, wie zum Haselbusche dort die rasche Jugend eilt! An jedem Aste schwinget sich der Kleinen lose Schar, und der bewegten Staud’ entstürzt gleich Hagelschau’r die lock’re Frucht.

simon Nun zeiget das entblösste Feld der ungebet’nen Gäste Zahl, die an den Halmen Nahrung fand und irrend jetzt sie weitersucht. Des kleinen Raubes klaget nicht der Landmann, der ihn kaum bemerkt; dem Übermasse wünscht er doch nicht ausgestellt zu sein. Was ihn dagegen sichern mag, sieht er als Wohltat an, und willig frohnt er dann zur Jagd, die seinen guten Herrn ergötzt.

Now the denuded field shows the number of unbidden guests who found nourishment among the stalks and wander now to seek them elsewhere. The countryman does not lament these small thefts; he hardly notices them. He does not wish to be criticized for excessive gain. Whatever keeps him safe from that, he regards as a favor, and willingly then joins the hunt, which gives pleasure to his good master.

Seht auf die breiten Wiesen hin, Seht, wie der Hund im Grase streift! Am Boden suchet er die Spur und geht ihr unablässig nach. Jetzt aber reisst Begierd’ ihn fort; er horcht auf Ruf und Stimme nicht mehr; er eilet zu haschen — da stockt sein Lauf, und er steht unbewegt wie Stein. Dem nahen Feinde zu entgeh’n erhebt der scheue Vogel sich; doch rettet ihn nicht schneller Flug. Es blitzt, es knallt, ihn erreichet das Blei und wirft ihn tot aus der Luft herab.

Look at the wide fields! See how the hound reconnoiters in the grass! seeking the scent on the ground and tirelessly pursuing it. Now eagerness carries him away; he heeds call or voice no longer; he hastens to the catch, then stops running and stands motionless as a stone. In order to evade his nearby enemy the timorous bird springs up; but rapid flight does not save him. There’s a flash, a bang, and the lead hits it, and casts it down, dead, from the air.



Here a tight ring drives the hares out of their lairs. Pressed on all sides, no flight helps them. Already they fall and soon lie in rows joyfully counted.

Hier treibt ein dichter Kreis die Hasen aus dem Lager auf. Von allen Seiten hergedrängt, hilft ihnen keine Flucht. Schon fallen sie und liegen bald in Reihen freudig hingezählt.

No. 29 — INTRODUCTION AND RECITATIVE (The Introduction depicts the thick fogs, with which winter begins.)

simon Nun senket sich das ble Jahr und fallen Dünste kalt herab. Die Berg’ umhüllt ein grauer Dampf, der endlich auch die Flächen drückt, und am Mittage selbst der Sonne matten Strahl verschlingt.

Now the pale year sinks away, and cold vapors descend. A gray mist surrounds the mountains, eventually oppressing the plains, too, and even at noon swallows up the sun’s weak rays.

hanne Aus Lapplands Höhlen schreitet her der stürmisch düst’re Winter jetzt. Vor seinem Tritt erstarrt in banger Stille die Natur.

From the caves of Lapland strides the stormy, gloomy winter now. At his footstep, Nature freezes into anxious silence.


hanne Licht und Leben sind geschwächet, Wärm’ und Freude sind verschwunden. Unmutsvollen Tagen folget schwarzer Nächte lange Dauer.

Light and life have grown weak, warmth and joy have disappeared. Upon disgruntled days follows black nights’ long duration.


lukas Gefesselt steht der breite See, gehemmt in seinem Laufe der Strom. Im Sturze von türmenden Felsen hängt gestockt und stumm der Werfall. Im dürren Haine tönt kein Laut. Die Felder deckt, die Täler füllt ein’ ungeheure Flockenlast. Der Erde Bild ist nur ein Grab, wo Kraft und Reiz erstorben liegt, wo Leichenfarbe traurig herrscht und wo dem Blicke weit umher nur öde Wüstenei sich zeigt.

The broad lake stands in fetters, arrested in its course the stream. In its plunge from towering cliffs the waterfall stands frozen and mute. In the withered grove no sound is heard. An immense burden of snowflakes covers the fields, fills the valleys. The image of earth is now a grave, where strength and allure lie dead, where a deathlike hue bleakly rules, and where, to the circling gaze, only desolate waste is seen.

No. 32 — ARIA

lukas Hier steht der Wand’rer nun verwirrt und zweifelhaft, wohin den Schritt er lenken soll. Vergebens suchet er den Weg: Ihn leitet weder Pfad noch Spur.

Here stands the traveller now, confused and doubting, whither he should turn his steps. In vain he seeks the way; neither path nor track guide him. P L E A S E T U R N PA G E Q U I E T LY

The Seasons — Sung Text


Vergebens strenget er sich an und watet durch den tiefen Schnee, er find’t sich immer mehr verirrt. Jetzt sinket ihm der Mut, und Angst beklemmt sein Herz, da er den Tag sich neigen sieht, und Müdigkeit und Frost ihm alle Glieder lähmt. Doch plötzlich trifft sein spähend Aug’ der Schimmer eines nahen Lichts. Da lebt er wieder auf; vor Freuden pocht sein Herz. Er geht, er eilt der Hütte zu, wo starr und matt er Labung hofft.

In vain he exerts himself and wades through the deep snow; he finds himself ever more lost. Now his courage fails and fear seizes his heart, as he sees the day draw to an end, and weariness and cold have paralyzed all his limbs. But suddenly his searching eye discerns the shimmer of a nearby light. He revives again; his heart beats with joy. He goes, he hastens toward the hut, where, cold and weak, he seeks comfort.


lukas So wie er naht, schallt in sein Ohr, durch heulende Winde nur erst geschreckt, heller Stimmen lauter Klang.

And as he nears, there echoes in his ear, just now terrified by howling winds, the loud sound of happy voices.

hanne Die warme Stube zeigt ihm dann des Dörfchens Nachbarschaft, vereint in trautem Kreise den Abend zu verkürzen mit leichter Arbeit und Gespräch.

The warm room reveals to him then the neighbors of the little village, united in a cozy circle to shorten the evening with light work and conversation.

simon Am Ofen schwatzen hier von ihrer Jugendzeit die Väter; zu Körb’ und Reusen flicht die Weidengert’ und Netze Strickt der Söhne munt’rer Haufe dort. Am Rocken spinnen die Mütter, am laufenden Rade die Töchter; und ihren Fleiss belebt ein ungekünstelt frohes Lied.

Here by the stove the fathers chatter of their boyhood; there the happy crowd of sons plait willow withes into baskets and hampers and weave their nets. The mothers spin on the distaff, their daughters on the spinning wheel; and an artless cheerful song enlivens their industry.

No. 34 — SONG WITH CHORUS — SPINNING SONG by gottfried august bürger

wives and maidens Knurre, schnurre, knurre, schnurre, Rädchen, schnurre!

Rumble, whir, rumble, whir, little wheel, whir!

hanne Drille, Rädchen, lang und fein, drille fein ein Fädelein mir zum Busenschleier!


Turn, little wheel, long and fine, spin a fine little thread to make a veil for my bosom.

lukas Abgesponnen ist der Flachs, nun steh’n die Räder still. Da wird der Kreis verengt und von dem Männervolk umringt, zu horchen auf die neue Mär, die Hanne jetzt erzählen wird.

Now the flax has all been spun, now the wheels are still. Now the circle closes in and, surrounded by the menfolk, attends to the latest story, which Hanne will now relate.


hanne Ein Mädchen, das auf Ehre hielt, liebt’ einst ein’ Edelmann; da er schon längst auf sie gezielt, traf er allein sie an. Er stieg sogleich vom Pferd und sprach: Komm, küsse deinen Herrn! Sie rief vor Angst und Schrecken: Ach! Ach ja, von Herzen gern.

A girl who cared for her reputation once loved a nobleman; since he had long been after her, he met her all alone. He climbed down from his horse and said: “Come, kiss your lord!” She cried with fear and terror, “Oh! Oh yes, with all my heart.” P L E A S E T U R N PA G E Q U I E T LY

chorus Eh, eh, why not “no”?

Ei, ei, warum nicht nein?

hanne Sei ruhig, sprach er, liebes Kind, und schenke mir dein Herz; denn meine Lieb’ ist treu gesinnt, nicht Leichtsinn oder Scherz. Dich mach ich glücklich: Nimm dies Geld, den Ring, die gold’ne Uhr! Und hab’ ich sonst, was dir gefällt, o sag’s und ford’re nur!

“Be calm,” he said, “dear child, and give me your heart; for my love is honorable, neither frivolous nor a joke. I’ll make you happy: take this money, this ring, this golden watch! And if I have anything else you like, just name it and ask for it!”

chorus Eh, eh, that sounds very fine!

Ei, ei, das klingt recht fein!

hanne “No,” says she, “that would be too daring, my brother might see, and if he told my father, what would become of me? He is plowing all too near us here . . . Otherwise it might work. Just look — from that hill there you can see him plowing.”

Nein, sagt sie, das wär’ viel gewagt, mein Bruder möchte’ es seh’n, und wenn er’s meinem Vater sagt, wie wird mir’s dann ergeh’n? Er ackert uns hier allzu nah . . . Sonst könnt’ es wohl gescheh’n. Schaut nur, von jenem Hügel da könnt Ihr ihn ackern seh’n.

chorus Ho, ho, what does this mean?

Ho, ho, was soll das sein?

hanne Indem der Junker geht und sieht, schwingt sich das lose Kind auf seinen Rappen und entflieht geschwinder als der Wind. Lebt wohl, rief sie, mein gnäd’ger Herr! So räch’ ich meine Schmach. Ganz eingewurzelt stehet er und gafft ihr staunend nach.

While the squire goes and sees, the lively girl swings up on his black horse and escapes faster than the wind. “Farewell,” she cried, “my noble lord! Thus I avenge my shame.” Utterly rooted, he stands there and gapes after her in wonder.

chorus Ha, ha, das war recht fein.

Ha, ha, that was a good one!


simon Vom dürren Osten dringt ein scharfer Eishauch jetzt hervor. Schneidend fährt er durch die Luft, verzehret jeden Dunst und hascht des Tieres Odem selbst. Des grimmigen Tyranns, des Winters Sieg ist nun vollbracht, und stummer Schrecken drückt den ganzen Umfang der Natur.


From the desolate East a sharp icy breath now presses forward. It cuts through the air as it comes, consumes all the vapor and snatches the very breath of the animals. The victory of Winter, the grim tyrant, is now complete, silent terror oppresses the entire circuit of Nature. The Seasons — Sung Text

The Cleveland Orchestra


simon Erblicke hier, betörter Mensch, erblicke deines Lebens Bild. Verblühet ist dein kurzer Lenz, erschöpfet deines Sommers Kraft. Schon welkt dein Herbst dem Alter zu, schon naht der bleiche Winter sich und zeiget dir das off ’ne Grab. Wo sind sie nun, die hoh’n Entwürfe, die Hoffnungen vom Glück, die Sucht nach eitlem Ruhme, der Sorgen schwere Last? Wo sind sie nun, die Wonnetage, verschwelgt in Üppigkeit? Und wo die frohen Nächte, im Taumel durchgewacht? Wo sind sie nun? Wo? Verschwunden sind sie wie ein Traum. Nur Tugend bleibt.

Look here, deluded man, observe the image of your life. Faded is your brief springtime, exhausted your summer’s strength. Already your autumn fades to age, already pale winter draws near and shows you your open grave. Where are they now, the lofty schemes, the hopes of happiness, the quest after idle fame, the heavy burden of sorrows? Where are they now, the days of rapture, wasted in luxury? And where the happy nights spent in intoxication? Where are they now? Where? They are vanished like a dream. Only virtue remains.

simon Die bleibt allein und leitet uns, unwandelbar, durch Zeit und Jahreswechsel, durch Jammer oder Freude bis zu den höchsten Zielen hin.

It alone remains and leads us, changeless, through change of times and seasons, through sorrow or joy to the highest goal.


simon Dann bricht der grosse Morgen an, der Allmacht zweites Wort erweckt zum neuen Dasein uns, von Pein und Tod auf immer frei.

Then dawns the great morning, the Almighty’s second word awakens us to the new being, forever free of pain and death.

lukas, simon Die Himmelspforten öffnen sich, der heil’ge Berg erscheint. Ihn krönt des Herren Zelt, wo Ruh’ und Frieden thront.

The gates of heaven open, the holy mount appears. The Lord’s tabernacle crowns it, where rest and peace are enthroned.

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
