Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director May 2013 On June 8, 2008, The Cleveland Orchestra announced a number of forward-looking initiatives in conjunction with the extension of Franz Welser-Möst’s contract as music director to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Franz is a visionary artistic leader and with him we laid out a program of new projects, including bringing fullystaged opera back to Severance Hall, the return of ballet to Blossom, a renewed commitment to music education, and expanded institutional partnerships. Today, five years along the road, those plans have been accomplished — and more. This ongoing evolution has been possible through the leadership of our Board of Trustees and the creative efforts of the musicians and staff. Integral to the success of these changes has been the enthusiastic response of audiences, the genuine interest and encouragement of our collaborative partners, and the generous support of families, foundations, and corporations from across Northeast Ohio. We are grateful that audiences are embracing fully-staged opera and ballet. Sold-out performances of three of Mozart’s greatest operas in recent seasons will be followed next spring with Janáček’s Cunning Little Vixen. Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet danced The Nutcracker to filled houses at PlayhouseSquare this past holiday season, and will join us again this summer at Blossom to perform Stravinsky’s ground-breaking The Rite of Spring. With partners from across Northeast Ohio, we have taken giant steps in collaborative work, education, audience development, and community engagement. Our first neighborhood residency, “At Home in Gordon Square,” featured sixteen public presentations last week in partnership with local businesses and organizations. We are extending our commitment to music education through Franz’s “Make Music!” initiative. New collaborative presentations have been created with the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland Play House. Through a broader range of programming and with donor-supported efforts to reach new audiences, the Orchestra is once again breaking ticket sales records here at Severance Hall and performing in schools around the region. Many of these generous corporate, foundation, and individual donors are recognized in lists printed in this program book. We are grateful for their support for and confidence in the projects we have completed and the plans we are laying out for the future. The rapid pace of change over these five years has been a welcome collaborative process, with all the Orchestra’s constituents working together. To continue the evolution, we must secure the funding required to maintain this great Orchestra while preparing for the future. We are in the midst of a comprehensive, decade-long campaign to ask for this community’s generosity in carrying the Orchestra forward. Please consider your role in helping build on the momentum created by the Orchestra’s recent successes and in helping to ensure our ability to serve this community for decades to come.

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

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

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

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

in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the MozartDa Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012. Franz Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in 2010. His long partnership with the company has included acclaimed performances of Tristan and Isolde, a new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director SvenEric Bechtolf, and critically praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac and Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead. During the 2012-13 season, his Vienna performances include Wagner’s Parsifal, Strauss’s Arabella and Ariadne auf Naxos, Puccini’s La Bohème, and Berg’s Wozzeck. Mr. Welser-Möst also maintains an ongoing relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances at the Lucerne Festival and Salzburg Festival, in Tokyo, and in concert at La Scala Milan, as well as leading the Philharmonic’s 2011 New Year’s Day concert, viewed by telecast in seventy countries worldwide; he conducted the New Year’s Day concert again at the start of 2013 and also leads the Philharmonic in a series of concerts at New York’s Carnegie Hall in March 2013. Across a decade-long tenure with the Zurich Opera, culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08), Mr. Welser-Möst led the company in more than 40 new productions and numerous revivals. Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including the Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, Japanese Record Academy Award, and two Grammy nominations. With The Cleveland Orchestra, he has created DVD recordings of live performances of Bruckner symphonies, presented in three acoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Severance Hall). With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as an all-Wagner album featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman. DVD releases on the EMI label have included Mr. Welser-Möst leading Zurich Opera productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Der Rosenkavalier, Fierrabras, and Peter Grimes. For his talents and dedication, Mr. Welser-Möst has received honors that include recognition from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights, honorary membership in the Vienna Singverein, appointment as an Academician of the European Academy of Yuste, a Gold Medal from the Upper Austrian government for his work as a cultural ambassador, a Decoration of Honor from the Republic of Austria for his artistic achievements, and the Kilenyi Medal from the Bruckner Society of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

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

—Cleveland Plain Dealer, March 28

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

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

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

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

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

The Cleveland Orchestra launched 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, May 11-17. Planned with local business and organization partners, this inaugural “At Home” week offered sixteen performances, collaborations, and educational presentations — featuring ensembles from the Orchestra, and the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and Youth Chorus. The centerpiece event was a community concert at Saint Colman Catholic Church, which attracted a capacity audience on Thursday night, May 16. All events were free and open to the public, and the residency generated much excitement in the neighborhood as well as interest across the region. The Plain Dealer reported that “the music stopped ringing right after the concert, but reverberations from the free, jampacked appearance in a local neighborhood will be felt long after the residency ends. . . . It was yet another instance of what made the orchestra’s first neighborhood residency so remarkable. Between public events and private school sessions, no one in Gordon Square was left behind.” BBC Magazine came and produced an online report about the Orchestra playing “in bars to reach new audiences.” And CoolCleveland.com noted that “nothing . . . prepared us for the sheer scale and scope of the . . . residency, presenting 16 events at 14 different venues, from an ice cream parlor to a butcher shop, from a wine bar to a movie theatre, from a funky coffee shop to a huge Catholic church.” Scene Magazine summed things up with the comment that the neighborhood residency was “unprecedented, not just for this orchestra but for any orchestra.“ Each annual “At Home” residency week will immerse the Orchestra in a single neighborhood to connect musicians and residents through performances in local hotspots, live

music in unexpected locations, and a Cleveland Orchestra community concert for all. New neighborhoods or towns will be chosen in future years to partner with The Cleveland Orchestra in creating a unique and intensive week of musical activities, performances, exploration, and everyday fun. The Cleveland Orchestra’s “At Home” neighborhood residency program is supported in part by the Machaskee Fund for Community Programming, a fund created by a generous endowment gift from Alex and Carol Machaskee.

Music Director Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra have announced the appointment of a new assistant concertmaster and a new member of the second violin section. Both appointments began at the end of April. Alexandra Preucil, a member of the violin section since 2008, moves forward in the first violins to hold the Dr. Jeanette Grasselli Brown and Dr. Glenn R. Brown Assistant Concertmaster Endowed Chair. She graduated from the Cleveland Institute of Music with a bachelor’s degree in music and a minor in dance. While in school, Ms. Preucil was assistant concertmaster with the Akron and Canton symphonies, and was a member of the Svanito Quartet. Yun-Ting Lee joins The Cleveland Orchestra as a member of the second violin section. Prior to his appointment, he was a member of Canton Symphony Orchestra and CityMusic Cleveland, and performed as a substitute violinist with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. Most recently, he won a position with the Minnesota Orchestra. A native of Taiwan, Mr. Lee grew up in Arizona, and holds bachelor’s and master’s degrees from the Cleveland Institute of Music.

New record albums released by Cleveland Orchestra musicians New recordings by Cleveland Orchestra musicians have been released and are available for purchase through the Cleveland Orchestra Store. Cellist Brian Thornton has recorded an album titled Kol Nidrei and Beyond: Lev’s Story. The album features music written and arranged by his teacher and mentor, Lev Aronson, after Aronson’s escape from concentration camps in World War II. The recording is dedicated in Aronson’s memory, and all proceeds benefit a new scholarship fund in his honor at Southern Methodist University. Pianist Spencer Myer plays with Thornton on the album, recorded in Reinberger Chamber Hall. Ensemble HD’s new album, recorded live at the Happy Dog last December, was released and celebrated as part of “At Home in Gordon Square” last week.

THE CLEVELAND OR-

Severance Hall 2012-13

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. He had earlier served as assistant personnel manager, 1960-71. 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.

Composer Sean Shepherd met with students in April at Shaker Heights High School (above), Baldwin Wallace University, Cleveland School of the Arts, and the Cleveland Institute of Music as part of his work as the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow. Shepherd was in town for the world premiere performances of his new work, Tuolumne, created as part of his two-year fellowship with The Cleveland Orchestra. The Plain Dealer wrote of his new work: “Inspired by three photographs by Ansel Adams, the colorful piece readily achieved its goal, evoking the harsh environment of the Sierra Nevada and the tug-of-war between black and white that defines the pictures.”

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Fate, Life& Luck THIS WEEK’S CONCERTS

feature three works spanning over twohundred years, created by composers of three different nationalities. Two are important standards of the repertoire, written by the giants Beethoven and Tchaikovsky. The third is an introduction to an impressive Scandinavian composer of today. All of this week’s concerts end with the bravado of Tchaikovsky’s big and brash Fifth Symphony. Here the composer wrestled with the weight that Fate had pressed against his shoulders — and argued himself (or at least his music) to a strong and optimistic ending. His own life was filled with as much trouble as triumph, and often overcome with insecurities. Art, however, can only partially imitate life — and this symphony has its own tale to tell, quite separate from Tchaikovsky’s inner demons. It is a fully satisfying experience, drenched in melody and grandeur. Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto is performed on all but the shorter KeyBank Fridays@7 program. Here played by soloist Lars Vogt, it was written in 1802-03, representing a midpoint evolution for Beethoven the pianist-composer. Created in the same years as his revolutionary “Eroica” Symphony (No. 3), it is Beethoven at his shining best. It is a young man’s concerto, full of vigor and promise, with ideas barely constrained within an old-fashioned shell. (His remaining two concertos veer further from the path, with the Fourth becoming wonderfully personal and introspective, and the Fifth — written when the composer’s growing deafness prevented him from performing the world premiere himself — at last melding his affliction into defiant joy.) At the top, guest conductor Manfred Honeck begins with Rolf Martinsson’s Open Mind, a piece for which he led the world premiere in 2007 — and for which he has high admiration. The composer created it as an introduction, both for a concert and for his own musical art. We can be pleased to meet him. —Eric Sellen

Open Mind composed 2004-05

The composer has written the following introductory comments about this work:

by

Rolf

MARTINSSON born May 1, 1956 Glimåkra, Skåne, Sweden living in Malmö, Sweden

O P E N M I N D is an introductory piece, an overture for orchestra. The title refers to the fact that the work is meant to be a short opening piece in a concert program, but also to an openness in the composer’s free choice of expression with an open mind to musical ideas, gestures, and styles — and with a strong wish to communicate. Harmonic structures, melodic lines, and ideas of a colorful instrumentation are fundamental to the composing of Open Mind. A nine-tone scale forms the musical basis of the piece, but is still contrasting with form elements that are more freely treated with regard to musical material. The work was commissioned by the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra (SRSO) for the Baltic Sea Festival. The world premiere took place on August 10, 2005, with the SRSO led by Manfred Honeck performing at the Estonia Concert Hall in Tallinn, Estonia. The Swedish premiere occurred five days later with SRSO and Honeck in Stockholm. Open Mind is available on Daphne Records. The score was published by Gehrmans Musikförlag. —Rolf Martinsson

At a Glance This work runs about 10 minutes in performance. Martinsson scored it for 2 flutes (second doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets (second doubling bass clarinet), 2 bassoons (second doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 trombones, bass trombone, timpani, percussion (crash cymbals, glockenspiel, vibraphone), and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this work for the first time with this weekend’s concerts.

About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra


About the Composer Rolf Martinsson Rolf Martinsson is among Sweden’s most-performed contemporary composers internationally. During the past few years, his music has been performed in New York, Vienna, Paris, London, Berlin, Prague, Madrid and Tokyo. His collaboration with trumpeter Håkan Hardenberger opened opportunities around the world with the premiere of Martinsson’s trumpet concerto Bridge over two decades ago. Hardenberger has since performed the work over fift y times. Similarly, Martinsson’s more recent collaboration with trombonist Christian Lindberg yielded the trombone concerto Fairlight, commissioned by the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra. Fairlight has won widespread acclaim, including the Swedish Music Publisher’s Award for “Most Significant Contemporary Music Work of the Year” in 2005. Martinsson has taken part in many international projects together with leading conductors, soloists, and orchestras. In 2005, the BBC Symphony Orchestra commissioned and premiered Martinsson’s Cello Concerto with Mats Lidström as soloist. Martinsson also collaborates regularly with the major Swedish orchestras. The Malmö Symphony Orchestra has during the past few years performed all his orchestral works and solo concertos; and the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Alan Gilbert has taken Martinsson’s music to Japan and the Balkans, as well as other countries. Rolf Martinsson’s catalog features nearly 100 different works, including orchestral works, solo concertos, choir music, chamber music works for a variety of instrumental groupings, radio drama scores, and solo works. His music is characterized by a powerful stylistic awareness and unique musical craftsmanship. In November 2008, Martinsson was one of the two composers highlighted during the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra’s Composers Festival. More than twenty of his works were performed by the participating orchestras and soloists. Recent and upcoming composition projects include a clarinet concerto for Martin Fröst (a co-commission by the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and the Malmö Symphony Orchestra), a double bass concerto for Dan Styffe and the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra, and a new major orchestral work for the Malmö Symphony Orchestra. Since 2002, Rolf Martinsson has held the position of composer-in-residence and artistic advisor with the Malmö Symphony Orchestra and, since 2006, has served as chair of musical theory (including arrangement and composition) at the Malmö Academy of Music. Martinsson is represented by Gehrmans Musikförlag. Severance Hall 2012-13

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Opus 37 composed 1802-03 THE POPULAR IMAGE

by

Ludwig van

BEETHOVEN born December 16 or 17, 1770 Bonn died March 26, 1827 Vienna

Severance Hall 2012-13

of the young Beethoven as a rash, brash, explosive fellow hell-bent on destroying the Classical traditions of Mozart and Haydn is just Romantic propaganda, needing only the reminders of the nature of his early works to set the record straight. Conclusive evidence that he was cautious rather than reckless is seen in his early works, large and small, and perhaps most importantly, in the chronology of his symphonies. The First Symphony dates from 1800, Beethoven’s 29th year, clearly indicating that the Bonn firebrand, by then a Viennese, was treading very carefully before leaping into those symphonic pastures already filled with the many plantings of the two great masters, Mozart, then dead nine years, and Haydn, a venerable figure still alive and writing at age 68. By 1800, Beethoven had produced, outside the orchestral realm, a considerable number of chamber works, easily a dozen piano sonatas, songs, etc., and had tested his orchestral mettle only in a number of dances, a couple of cantatas, some ballet music, and in the first two piano concertos. The year 1800 itself accounted for, among other works, the aforementioned First Symphony, and at least some sketches for the Third Piano Concerto. (This concerto was long thought to have been written in 1799 or 1800, but recent research suggests that its composition — but not all of Beethoven’s ponderings for it — may have come two or so years later.) The premiere of the Third Piano Concerto took place at Vienna’s Theater-an-der-Wien on April 5, 1803, in a concert that also included his first two symphonies and the oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives. Quite a mammoth dose of Beethoven for one evening! — although, in fact, it was a benefit concert to raise funds for him directly. Enduring an inadequate piano and an orchestra to match, Beethoven played the solo part from an all but illegibly scribbled score and unveiled to his public a concerto of greater depth than either of his first two. Of his eventual five piano concertos, it is the only one in a minor key, and it is also the last to bear the full imprint of the genre’s formalism inherited from earlier composers, especially Mozart. Not surprisingly, considering the bedlam of the performance, the occasion was less than auspicious. Wrote a Viennese critic, About the Music

possibly understating the case: “. . . in the Concerto in C-minor Hr. v. Beethoven did not perform to the complete satisfaction of the public.” Cast in the fist-clenched key of C minor, the first movement has a main theme that is symphonically terse and contains, at the end of its first sentence, an uneven rhythm that serves as a unifying thread. This opening, stated soft ly but with unison emphasis by the strings, is answered in precisely the same rhythmic image but on a higher pitch by winds and horns. A gently contrasting second theme eventually appears in violins and clarinets. At this point, one suspects the composer quite forgot there was to be a piano concerto, for he goes on to put these musical materials through a lengthy, typically symphonic development. Eventually remembering the business at hand, he brings the orchestra to a cadence of urgent finality. The long-patient soloist rushes into battle, unattended, with three upward scale interjections, the third giving way to the main theme proclaimed aggressively in octaves. The course of the movement is next laid out in the Mozart-defined tradition, up to and including the coda, which then echoes an unusual concerto procedure also found in a mature Mozart work in the same key (K491 of 1786) that Beethoven knew well and had himself played as soloist. As in Mozart’s concerto, the solo instrument plays into the final summing-up measures, normally allotted to orchestra alone. In Beethoven’s hands, the coda design is particularly ingenious. Emerging from the solo cadenza, timpani intone the uneven rhythm of the main theme and are answered by limpid broken chords from the piano. In hushed tones, as if calling from beyond this sphere, the piano then begins an exciting race to a restatement and expansion of those scales with which it first entered this world (or at least the world of this particular concerto). This is a wonderfully impressive moment. Reverse entry order is instituted for the remaining two movements. The piano begins the slow second movement with a melody that recalls the noble pathos of Mozart, but Beethoven’s strokes here are unmistakably broader. If, for the first move-

Enduring an inadequate piano and an orchestra to match, Beethoven played the solo part of his Third Concerto at its world premiere in 1803, unveiling to his public a concerto of greater depth than either of his first two. Of his eventual five piano concertos, it is the only one in a minor key.

ment Beethoven owed much to the procedure and the spirit of that specific Mozart concerto (K491), poetic justice of sorts was later meted out — for Beethoven’s method of apportioning the third-movement rondo finale’s opening material proved irresistible to Brahms, whose corresponding movement in his D-minor Piano Concerto begins in a strikingly similar manner. Brahms’s work, indeed, goes on to reflect Beethoven’s transitional devices, fugal section, and subsequent major-key transformation of the main theme. In Beethoven’s original, the taut and vigorous theme is interrupted by music of, in turn, whimsical good humor and sunny lyricism. After a third insistent return of the main melody and a brief cadenza, a riotous coda in C major brings this concerto to a conclusion as boisterously lighthearted as the opening was serious and defiant. —Orrin Howard © 2013 Orrin Howard served as publications director and program annotator for the Los Angeles Philharmonic 1972-93. Today, he writes about music for a number of orchestras across the U.S. and for the Salzburg Festival.

At a Glance It was long thought that Beethoven had written this concerto in 1799 or 1800, with sketches dating to as early as 1797. More recent research suggests that, although some phrases may have been sketched earlier, he began writing the concerto in earnest in 1802 and completed it early in 1803. It was first performed on April 5, 1803, at the Theater-an-der-Wien in Vienna, with the composer as soloist. The concerto was pub-

lished the following year with a dedication to Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto in January 1923 at subscription concerts led by Nikolai Sokoloff,

with Mischa Levitzki as soloist. The most recent performances at Severance Hall were given in December 2009 with Richard Goode as soloist, conducted by Iván Fischer. The Cleveland Orchestra recorded all five of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos three times: 1959-61 with George Szell and Leon Fleisher, in 1968 with Szell and Emil Gilels, and 1986-87 with Vladimir Ashkenazy as both conductor and pianist.

Symphony No. 5 in E minor, Opus 64 composed 1888 A T T H E A G E O F F O R T Y - E I G H T,

Pyotr Ilyich

TCHAIKOVSKY born May 7, 1840 near Votkinsk, Russia died November 6, 1893 St. Petersburg

Severance Hall 2012-13

despite his growing international fame, Tchaikovsky was constantly plagued by self-doubt. Early in 1888, he went on a three-month European tour, conducting his own works with some of the world’s finest orchestras. He was feted in Leipzig, Paris, London, and Prague, and made the acquaintance of Dvořák, Grieg, and Mahler. Tchaikovsky’s private life, however, was not free from turmoil. His sister Alexandra and his niece Vera were both seriously ill, and one of his closest friends, Nikolai Kondratyev, had recently died. It must have been hard to escape the thought that life was a constant struggle against Fate, which appears as a hostile force attempting to thwart all human endeavors. After his return from abroad, Tchaikovsky decided to write a new symphony, his first in ten years. Characteristically, the first sketches of the new work, made on April 15, 1888, include a verbal program portraying an individual’s reactions in the face of immutable destiny, involving stages of resignation, challenge, and triumph: “Introduction. Complete resignation before Fate, or, which is the same, before the inscrutable predestination of Providence. Allegro. (1) Murmurs of doubt, complaints, reproaches against XXX. (2) Shall I throw myself in the embraces of faith??? A wonderful program, if only it can be carried out.” Tchaikovsky never made this program public, however, and in one of his letters even went out of his way to stress that the symphony had no program. Clearly, the program was an intensely personal matter to him, in part because he was reluctant to openly acknowledge his homosexuality, which seemed to him one of the hardest manifestations of the Fate he was grappling with. Many people believe that the un-named, mysterious “XXX” in the sketch stands for homosexuality. In his diaries, Tchaikovsky often referred to his homosexuality as “Z” or “That.” What, if anything, are we to make of all this? Should we listen to Tchaikovsky’s Fifth as a program symphony, about Fate and Destiny? How concerned should we be about thoughts the composer never wanted to divulge, especially those regarding his sexual impulses? It seems clear that the “program” that Tchaikovsky had sketched had a deep influence on his thinking during the time he was writing the Fifth Symphony — without it, the symphony About the Music

would not be what it is. Perhaps most particularly, the opening theme — the “Fate theme” — would probably not return so ominously in all four movements. At the same time, the “program” in itself is insufficient to explain the finished work, in part because the “meaning” of many other themes throughout the symphony is unclear. Moreover, Tchaikovsky had already written a “Fate” symphony — the Fourth — for which a more detailed program survives. And the similarities of the two programs do little to explain the great differences between the two works. (The program of the Fourth is problematic in itself, for no sooner had Tchaikovsky written it down in a letter to his patroness than he declared it to be hopelessly “confused and incomplete. . .”.) As for the question of the privacy of a composer’s feelings and desires, while we shouldn’t be too preoccupied with a composer’s most private thoughts, we probably can’t ignore them completely either — especially because there is ample evidence to suggest that Tchaikovsky in particular was both unable and unwilling to separate his extramusical preoccupations from his composing. (The blending of work and life comprises an infinite variety of mixtures among human beings — and some other composers have kept their music and their lives quite separate.) The four movements of Tchaikovsky’s Fift h Symphony are linked by a common theme, often played by the brass instruments and apparently symbolizing the threatening power of Fate. English musicologist Gerald Abraham noted that this theme was taken almost literally from an aria in Mikhail Glinka’s opera A Life for the Tsar, in which it was sung to the words “Ne svodi na gore” (“Do not turn to sorrow”). The Fate theme is first heard in the Andante introduction of the first movement, soon to be followed by a more lyrical, lilting idea as we move into the faster Allegro con anima tempo. Even with the change of melody, the accompaniment of the Fate motif remains present as a stern reminder. The entire first movement swings back and forth between lyrical and dramatic moments. We would expect it to end with the final fortissimo climax. Instead, the volume gradually decreases to a whisper, and the mysterious last measures are scored for the lowest-pitched instruments in the orchestra — bassoons, cellos, double basses, and timpani. The second movement is lyrical and dream-like, suggesting a brief respite from the struggle. The first horn plays a Severance Hall 2012-13

About the Music

At a Glance Tchaikovsky wrote his Fifth Symphony in 1888, completing it on August 26. He conducted its premiere on November 17, 1888, in St. Petersburg. The first performance in the United States was given on March 5, 1889, by conductor Theodore Thomas in New York City. This symphony runs about 45 minutes in performance. Tchaikovsky scored it for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Tchaikovsky’s Fifth during its second season in 1919-20, and has performed it frequently since that time. The most recent performances were in March 2006 at Severance Hall, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst and James Gaffigan, and in August 2009 at Blossom, conducted by David Zinman.

beautiful singing melody, eventually joined by the full orchestra. A second idea, in a slightly faster tempo, is introduced by the clarinet. Soon, however, an intense crescendo begins, culminating in the fortissimo entrance of the Fate theme. The movement’s opening theme returns, again interrupted by Fate; only after this second dramatic outburst does the music finally find its long-desired rest. The third movement is a graceful waltz, with a slightly more agitated middle section. Again we expect a respite from the Fate theme and the emotional drama it represents. Yet before the movement is over, there is a short reminder, subdued yet impossible to ignore, in the clarinets and bassoons. In the fourth-movement finale, Tchaikovsky seems to have taken the bull by the horns. The Fate theme dominates the entire movement, despite the presence of a number of contrasting themes. At the end of a grandiose development section, the music comes to a halt on the key signature’s dominant (the fifth degree of the scale, which often serves as the opposite pole to the tonic or home keynote). At some performances over the years, audience members have mistakenly thought that the symphony was over at this point and started applauding. The final resolution, however, is yet to come, in the form of a majestic reappearance of the Fate theme and a short Presto section in which all “doubts, complaints, and reproaches” are cast aside. Against all odds — or is it simply humanity’s optimistic desires? — the symphony receives the triumphant ending we’ve all been listening for. —Peter Laki © 2013

The four movements of Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony are linked by a common melodic thread that seems to symbolize the threatening power of Fate. Even with growing international fame, the composer was never free of self-doubt and uncertainty.

Over the course of the last few years, the 11-piece music collective has toured the United States, revitalizing the dance-floor crowd and turning seasoned skeptics into lifelong fans. Their debut album, Booty (May 2012), showcases a contemporary sound that owes as much to the raw pocket of Sly & The Family Stone and P-Funk as it does to the calculated bounce of Prince and James Brown. “We are trying to put the old records on, while adding the boom-bap of our generation, so young people can discover the funk all over again,” says bandleader Garzón-Montano. “We’re putting our own spin on the music and message of the masters we idolize, blending the past with the present to help you get down with the future.” Mokaad is trunk music for real live people.

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

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

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

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

Georgian exterior was constructed to harmonize with the classical architecture of other prominent buildings in the University Circle area. The interior of the building reflects a combination of design styles, including Art Deco, Egyptian Revival, Classicism, and Modernism. An extensive renovation, restoration, and expansion of the facility was completed in January 2000.
