Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director September 2013 The Cleveland Orchestra launches its 96th season this month with wide-ranging repertoire and collaborations with six renowned guest artists. We are excited to welcome back to Severance Hall Fabio Luisi, Hélène Grimaud, Kirill Gerstein, and Itzhak Perlman, and we are equally delighted to have with us Maureen McKay and Vassily Sinaisky, who are making their Severance Hall debuts. Each of these wonderful artists marked their calendars for these engagements up to three years ago. And this is quite normal. In planning collaborations between worldclass orchestras, conductors, and soloists, schedules are completed two, three, and even four years in advance. Even as we begin The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 season, we are putting the finishing touches on the 2014-15 season. At the same time, we are finalizing the outlines of the Orchestra’s schedule for 2016 and 2017 — working carefully to fit together a calendar that supports ongoing commitments for concert performances and education programming here at home alongside available dates for concert tours in Europe, for our Miami residency, and for new initiatives in serving Northeast Ohio. In that context, planning for the Orchestra’s Centennial is now upon us. Our 100th season, 2017-18, begins in just four years. This month, we are beginning to set the framework for this celebration, together with Franz and the members of our Board of Trustees. Franz has articulated his vision: in our 100th season, The Cleveland Orchestra will look to the future and, in doing so, we will celebrate the community that gave birth to the institution and has generously supported the Orchestra across ten decades. Every voice, every constituency will be important in helping set our course for celebrating this milestone. As we look toward the Centennial and beyond, our goal is to lay the foundation for The Cleveland Orchestra’s next 100 years. I’ve written much in this column about the importance of creating a solid financial foundation in the form of a greatly increased endowment — and the Sound for the Centennial Campaign is beginning to make progress toward that ambitious goal, while also growing annual support. But we must also lay a solid foundation artistically and programmatically, to serve Northeast Ohio through diversified concert activities and institutional partnerships, to increase the Orchestra’s value to this community, and, through innovation and excellence, to set an example for the world as an institution that fully serves the art of music and the interests and expectations of our hometown. To keep The Cleveland Orchestra vital, our focus must always be on tomorrow, toward a second century of changing lives through the power of music. The greatest honor we can pay to this institution’s storied and acclaimed past is to build upon it as a prelude to a future in which we serve our community to the fullest.

and around the globe, The Cleveland Orch­ estra remains Northeast Ohio’s most visible international ambassador and 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 Music Festi­ val, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative program­ ming, and active community engagement. With the 2013-14 season, Franz Welser-Möst enters his twelfth year leading the ensemble, with a commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. This artistic partnership con­ tinues to move the ensemble forward through a series of new and ongoing ini­ tiatives, including: IN PE RFORMANC E S AT HOME

for an intensive week of special activities and performances, as well as the broaden­ ing of the Orchestra’s ongoing education and community engagement initiatives to include Make Music!, a program of active and participatory experience and learning; the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base — including ongoing residencies at the Vienna Musik­verein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra) and in Florida under the name Cleveland Orch­estra Miami (featuring an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with educational presentations and collaborations based on successful programs pioneered at home in Cleveland); creative new artistic collaborations with arts institutions in Northeast Ohio, including staged works, concerts, and chamber music performances; a concentrated and successful effort to develop future generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio, through research, targeted discounts, social media promotion, and student ticket programs, with demonstrat­ ed results at Severance Hall and Blossom; a variety of new concert offerings (including KeyBank Fridays@7 and Celebri­ ty Series at Severance Hall as well as movie, themed, and family presentations at Blossom) to play more music for more people; the return of ballet as a regular part of the Orchestra’s presentations, featuring on­ going collaborations with Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet; continuing and expanded educational partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities across Northeast Ohio and beyond; concert tours from coast to coast in the United States, including regular appear­ ances at Carnegie Hall; ongoing recording activities, including new releases under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst, Mitsuko Uchida, and Pierre Boulez, as well as a series of acclaimed DVD concert presentations of symphonies by Anton Bruckner led by Welser-Möst.

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 or­ chestras. 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 inti­ mate 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 Mu­ sic Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facili­ ties in the United States.

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

marks Franz Welser-Möst’s twelfth year as music director of The Cleveland Or­ chestra, with a long-term commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his di­ rection, the Orchestra is acclaimed for its continu­ ing artistic excellence, is extending and enhancing its community programming at home in Northeast Ohio, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, continues its his­ toric championship of new composers through com­ missions and premieres, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Mr. Welser-Möst is general music director of the Vienna State Opera. With a committed focus on music education in Northeast Ohio, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with per­ formances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. Mr. Welser-Möst’s championship of community music-making expands upon his active participation in educational programs and collaborative programming, including the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and partnerships with music conservato­ ries, universities, and other arts institutions 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 regular new 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 Festi­ val and Carnegie Hall. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-An­ dré Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, Sean Shepherd, and Ryan Wigglesworth. Franz Welser-Möst has led a series of opera performances during his tenure P H OTO BY S ATO S H I AOYAG I

THE 2013 -14 SEASON

Music Director


in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important oper­ atic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presen­ tations, 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 and in May 2014 brings an innovative made-for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen to Northeast Ohio.    Franz Welser-Möst became general music director of the Vienna State Opera in 2010. His long partnership with the com­ pany has included acclaimed performances of Tristan and Isolde, a new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, and critically praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac and Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead. During the 201314 season, his Vienna schedule includes a new production of Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West, as well as performances of Tristan and Isolde, Verdi’s Don Carlo, Beethoven’s Fidelio, and Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos and Der Rosenkavalier. Mr. Welser-Möst also maintains an ongoing relationship with the Vienna Phil­ harmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances in con­ cert at La Scala Milan, at New York’s Carneige Hall, and in opera presentations at the Salzburg Festival. He also led the Philharmonic’s New Year’s Day concert, viewed by telecast in seventy countries worldwide in 2011 and again in 2013. Across a decadelong tenure with the Zurich Opera, culminating in three seasons as general music di­ rector (2005-08), Mr. Welser-Möst led the company in more than 40 new productions. 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 re­ cordings of live performances of five of Bruckner’s symphonies, presented in three acoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musik­ verein, 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. Wels­ er-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, honor­ ary 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 So­ ciety of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

The movie, based on the novel by Anthony Burgess, depicts a violent Orwellian future showing conflicts between conformity and personal freedoms. The Cleveland Museum of Art screens The New Babylon, a revolutionary 1929 silent film featuring Shostakovich’s first film score, on October 23. Set at the time of the Franco-Prussian War, the movie views the era’s clash of social classes in Paris in 1871. Frank J. Oteri will discuss the film, the politics of the time, and the music in a pre-screening talk with Ewing, moderated by James Krukones (associate professor of history and associate academic vice president at John Carroll University).

The Cleveland Orchestra explores the music, times, and politics of two of western music’s most profound and controversial composers in “Fate and Freedom: Music of Beethoven and Shostakovich,” October 22-26. The Festival — featuring orchestra concerts, film screenings, pre-film and pre-concert talks, and a chamber music performance by members of The Cleveland Orchestra — is presented in partnership with the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Music Director Franz Welser-Möst conceived the Festival to look more closely at landmark symphonies by Beethoven and Shostakovich and to provide context around their creation, while examining the ever-relevant themes of personal and societal freedom they express. “Beethoven and Shostakovich were very political composers,” says Welser-Möst. “Their music was written to express the feeling of the times they lived in — there were new feelings about how to live. Beethoven’s Third Symphony was the first big musical and philosophical statement by a composer about what freedom can mean, both individually and collectively. Shostakovich lived under a suppressive regime. His symphonies represent personal despair. The symphonies of Beethoven and Shostakovich can teach us so much about our lives.” In a unique juxtaposition, Welser-Möst leads three distinct Cleveland Orchestra concerts on three consecutive evenings, pairing Beethoven Symphonies Nos. 3, 4, and 5 with Shostakovich Symphonies Nos. 6, 8, and 10, respectively, on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, October 24-26. Insight into the music will be provided in a pre-concert interview with Franz Welser-Möst on Thursday, October 24, and in a pre-concert talk with guest speaker Frank J. Oteri (New Music USA’s composer advocate and the senior editor of NewMusicBox) and Rebecca Mitchell (visiting

Jennifer Barlament has been appointed to the position of General Manager effective September 23, overseeing Orchestra operations, concert production, collective bargaining, electronic media, and facilities (Severance Hall and Blossom). “It is a great pleasure to welcome Jennifer Barlament to the staff of The Cleveland Orchestra,” said Hanson in making the appointment. “Her strong musical background and record of achievement are among the terrific portfolio of skills and talent she will bring to us.” Barlament has served as executive director of the Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra since 2009, and was general manager of the Omaha Symphony, 2002-09.

OrchestraNews The Eric & Jane Nord Family Fund pledges $2.5 million toward Orchestra’s education programming for students The Eric & Jane Nord Family Fund has pledged a gift of $2.5 million to sustain The Cleveland Orchestra’s education programming for students of all ages across Northeast Ohio. The contribution is one of the largest the Orchestra has received to date for education. The gift also supports the Sound for the Centennial Campaign, the Orchestra’s ten-year comprehensive campaign to increase the endowment and grow the Annual Fund. “This generous endowment gift from the Nord Family Fund helps to ensure that music education and community engagement programs remain available for future generations,“ said Franz Welser-Möst. “You can’t take it for granted anymore that young people are exposed to great art, so we have to reach out. . . . We want to be present in the schools, in the lives of Clevelanders, so they not only experience the joy of music, but

also that we become a part of their lives.” Since 1918, the Orchestra has introduced more than four million Cleveland-area schoolchildren to symphonic music. The Eric & Jane Nord Family Fund is contributing a total of $250,000 toward annual operating costs associated with delivering education and community programs, and has pledged $2.25 million to create an endowment fund. The gift follows major grant awards this year from The Cleveland Foundation, George Gund Foundation, John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Kulas Foundation, Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and John P.

The Cleveland Orchestra notes the death on July 25 of retired Orchestra tuba player Ronald Bishop. He served as principal tuba of The Cleveland Orchestra for 38 years, 1967-2005. Ron was born in Rochester, New York, and earned a bachelor of music degree and performer’s certificate from the Eastman School of Music and a master of science degree from the University of Illinois. In addition to his role as principal tuba, Ron performed as a soloist with The Cleveland Orchestra on many occasions, and performed in recitals and gave masterclasses throughout the world. He inspired generations of students as a faculty member of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Oberlin Conservatory of Music. He was also an avid supporter and performer with Performers and Artists for Nuclear Disarmament. Ron’s artistry, humanity, and sense of humor were priceless, and will be missed. The entire Orchestra family extends its condolences to Ron’s wife, Marie, and to all his family and friends. A group of friends, family, and colleagues from Oberlin College and the Cleveland Institute of Music gathered at Blossom for one of the Orchestra’s performances this summer of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring with the Joffrey Ballet, remembering especially Ron’s particular love of this great work — and of his playing in the two recordings with The Cleveland Orchestra under the direction of Pierre Boulez, including the Grammy-winning 1969 version. A second Grammy-winning album also stands testament to Ron’s collaborative artistry — Antiphonal Music of Gabrieli, recorded in 1969 featuring members of the brass sections of the orchestras of Cleveland, Chicago, and Philadelphia. Ron, we’ll miss you, but your legacy lives on.


Please join in extending congratulations and warm wishes to: Sonja Braaten Molloy (violin) and her husband, Owen Molloy, whose baby boy, Cormac Henry, was born June 22. Lyle Steelman (trumpet) and Leslie Brown, who were married on September 14.

Emperors & Angels

T H E S E A S O N O P E N S this week with concerts featuring pairs of works, created by three master composers who worked in and directly influenced the mainstream of European classical music. Guest conductor Fabio Luisi leads these performances, of pieces important to his own understanding of the art of symphonic music. On Thursday and Saturday, Beethoven and Mahler are represented by works from the middle of their careers. With his last piano concerto, written in 1809 and often known by the nickname “Emperor,” Beethoven reached the pinnacle of his own journey in the concerto form. He’d built on Mozart’s model of sublime entertainment and artistic sentiment to create a new form of emotional statement — paving the way for many of the great and formidable piano concertos of the 19th century. For our performances this week, Hélène Grimaud takes on the soloist’s role. The Thursday and Saturday concerts conclude with Mahler’s sometimes gentle, Schumann, sometimes clangorous, at times oddly humorBeethoven, and Mahler ous Fourth Symphony. Melodic and evocative, this work from 1899-1900 encapsulates much of Mahler’s ideas about what a symphony could be, especially as a form for beauty. The final movement is a song of the naive delights of heaven . . . simple pleasures . . . food and wine . . . bringing an unexpectedly joyful and serene close to this music. Soprano Maureen McKay is the soloist. On Friday night, Beethoven is paired with Schumann’s First Symphony, nicknamed “Spring.” This exuberant work burst upon the composer as if in a spell — written from start to finish in four sleepless and cold winter nights. It is an exhilarating journey of musical energy. Of course, the KeyBank Fridays@7 evening also features music both before and after the concert, from classical to acoustic jazz. (Fridays@7 continues in the spring with three diverse concerts and an array of post-concert offerings; see page 26 for more details.) —Eric Sellen

Piano Concerto No. 5 (“Emperor”) in E-flat major, Opus 73 composed 1809

before him, Beethoven wrote his concertos for piano and orchestra as vehicles for displaying his own dazzle as a performer. In those times — before radio and recordings and copyright, and when public concerts were less frequent than today — new music was all the rage. Composing your own ensured that you had fresh, unique material to perform. Your biggest hits, from last year or last week, were meanwhile quickly appropriated by others through copied scores — and with the best tunes arranged for street organ grinders and lo­ cal wind ensembles. It is little wonder, then, that Mozart kept some scores under lock and key, and left the cadenzas for many of his concertos blank, so that only he could fill them in au­ thentically with his own brand of extemporaneous perfection. Beethoven moved to Vienna at the age of 22 in 1792. He’d hoped to get to Europe’s musical capital sooner and to study with Mozart, but family circumstances had kept him at home in Bonn helping raise his two younger brothers (around a fa­ ther who . . . simply drank too much). It was as a performer that Beethoven forged his reputation in Vienna, and within a year he was widely known as a red-hot piano virtuoso. This set the stage for writing his own concertos. For the first three, written between 1795 and 1802, he followed very much in Mozart’s footsteps with the form. In the 1780s, Mozart had turned the concerto into a fully-realized and independent genre, sometimes churning out three or four each season. But whereas Mozart, over the course of thirty or more works for solo piano or violin, had developed the concerto into sublime products, Beethoven (with just five works for piano and one for violin) strived to make the form individual and handmade again. Mozart created the molds and set the stan­ dards, and only occasionally over-filled or over-flowed them. Beethoven at first worked within and around those earlier definitions, but the thrust of his musical creativity eventually shattered tradition in order to offer up the first magnificently supercharged concertos of the Romantic 19th century. Beethoven’s last piano concerto (No. 5) marked a change in the composer’s life onstage. The Fourth was the last concerto LIKE MOZART

that Beethoven premiered publicly. By the time of the Fifth’s debut, his hearing was so far gone that, even if able to play the solo part, he could no longer hear and coordinate the orchestra playing around him. For the premiere in November 1811, the solo part was handled by Friedrich Schneider in Leipzig, and for the first Viennese performance Beethoven’s student Carl Czerny played it, in February 1812. But between the Fourth and Fifth concertos, something even more important happened than the further closing off of Beethoven’s hearing. In 1809, he was given a brand new piano (the manufacturer saw it as a promotional opportunity), which, despite his increasing deafness, helped paved the way for the overwhelming grandness of his last concerto. The fortepiano as an instrument had been invented at the start of the 18th century, transforming the earlier harpsichord and clavichord, which could play each note at one set volume, into a sensitive and dynamic instrument that could play any note softly or loudly or anywhere in between. While the new instrument took some time to catch on, it also underwent some evolutionary changes in design at the end of the century (in­ cluding the introduction of an iron sounding board and steel strings), which gave it an expanded range of notes and dynam­ ics. Mozart had written his concertos very carefully, so that the piano would not be drowned out by too many instruments playing at the same time. But Beethoven, concerto by concerto, was able to write more and more for an instrument that could play directly against a full orchestra. And in the Fifth Piano Concerto, the first movement opens big — with orchestral chords and piano flourishes. This is not, however, just ornamentation, for the thematic material of the entire movement derives out of these opening calls and response. Ingeniously, Beethoven builds the movement (the longest he wrote in any concerto) on a sense of increasing ten­ sion and climax, and with notable use of rhythms of two beats set against three. After this big opening comes one of the most heavenly of slow middle movements ever written, with the orchestra integrally interwoven into the piano’s lovely, lovingly, long­ ing, lingering phrases. This is directly connected to the thirdmovement finale, which features one of classical music’s most irresistible and memorable tunes — although this character­ ization is not to suggest that it would be easy to sing a song to Severance Hall 2013-14

The origins of the nickname “Emperor” for this concerto are uncertain. Until the latter half of the 20th century, the name was not well-known or often-used outside of English speak­ ing countries. Handed-down explanations for the nickname include a story that at the first Viennese performance (Febru­ ary 12, 1812) a French officer was: 1.) so overwhelmed by the concerto that he proclaimed it “an emperor among concertos” (or words to that effect), or 2.) that the same mythical (or in­ toxicated) French soldier was so moved by some of the marchlike music in the concerto or recognized a short phrase in the concerto so similar to La Marseillaise that he stood up and/or proclaimed that Emperor Napoleon’s presence was in the music. An early publisher or performer is a more likely, if less poetic, source for the name, which, whatever its origins, seems well justified by the concerto’s size and grandeur. In the context of listening to any of Beethoven’s five piano concertos (and The Cleveland Orchestra is presenting all five during the course of the 2013-14 season) and while contemplat­ ing the composer’s innovations and evolution in the artform, it is occasionally worthwhile noting that there is a sixth piano concerto by Beethoven. This is an arrangement that he made (or helped supervise) of his own Violin Concerto, Opus 61, for a generous Italian publisher. Known as Opus 61a, it is infre­ quently programmed. Few soloists have bothered to learn the part, and, admittedly, some portions of it don’t really work. It is, nonetheless, a strangely interesting work to hear in perfor­ mance or recording — and a sure way for many modern listen­ ers who feel too well-acquainted with Beethoven’s concertos to be startled again, as his audiences were, on hearing something unexpectedly familiar but different. —Eric Sellen © 2013

About the Music

At a Glance Beethoven composed his Piano Concerto No. 5 in 1809. The first known performance was given in Leipzig on November 28, 1811, with Friedrich Schneider as soloist and Johann Philipp Christian Schulz leading the Gewandhaus Orchestra. This concerto runs about 40 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for solo piano, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The “Emperor” Concerto was the first of Beethoven’s five piano concertos to be performed by The Cleveland Orchestra, in January 1922, with pianist Josef Hofmann under the direction of Nikolai Sokoloff. Since that time, it has been a frequent work on the Orchestra’s programs, at home and on tour, with many of the world’s greatest pianists, including Arthur Rubinstein, Artur Schnabel, Claudio Arrau, Rudolf Serkin, Rudolf Firkusny, Robert Casadesus, Leon Fleisher, Daniel Barenboim, Emil Gilels, Alicia de Larrocha, Murray Perahia, Vladimir Ashkenazy, Horacio Gutiérrez, and Radu Lupu. The Cleveland Orchestra has recorded this concerto three times: in 1961 with Leon Fleisher under the direction of George Szell, in 1968 with Emil Gilels (again under Szell), and in 1986 with Vladimir Ashkenazy as both soloist and conductor.

Hélène Grimaud French pianist Hélène Grimaud’s focus and career embrace a wide range of interests and endeavors. She is a deeply pas­ sionate and committed musical artist whose pianistic ac­ complishments play a central role in her life. But she has also established herself as a wildlife conservationist, human rights activist, and writer. She made her Cleveland Orchestra debut in August 1990. She last played here in November 2001. Hélène Grimaud was born in 1969 in Aix-en-Provence, where she began piano studies at the conservatory with Jac­ queline Courtin. She subsequently worked with Pierre Barbi­ zet in Marseille, was accepted into the Paris Conservatoire at the age of 13, and won first prize in piano performance three years later. She also studied with György Sándor and Leon Fleisher. Ms. Grimaud’s professional career was launched in 1987 with her debut recital in Tokyo and debut concert with the Orchestre de Paris. Since that time, she has performed with major orchestras across the world. Brahms features prominently in Ms. Grimaud’s repertoire throughout 2013, including the release of a double album of both piano concertos. Working exclusive­ ly with Deutsche Grammophon since 2002, she has recorded a range of works, from Beethoven and Liszt to Bartók, Mozart, and Rachmaninoff. Her concert and recit­ al performances this season include engagements across Europe, North and South America, and Asia — including appearances with the Czech Philharmonic, Los An­ geles Philharmonic, Orquestra Sinfônica do Estado de São Paulo, Philadelphia Or­ chestra, London’s Philharmonia Orchestra, and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic. As an ardent chamber musician, Ms. Grimaud has performed frequently with collaborators including Truls Mørk, Thomas Quasthoff, Rolando Villazón, Sol Gabetta, Clemens Hagen, and the Capuçon brothers. Between her 1995 debut with the Berlin Philharmonic and first performance with the New York Philharmonic in 1999, Ms. Grimaud made an entirely different kind of debut — founding the Wolf Conservation Center in Upstate New York. “To be involved in direct conservation and being able to put animals back where they belong,” she says, “there’s just nothing more exciting.” She is also a member of Musicians for Human Rights. Her first book, Variations Sauvages, was published in French in 2003 and subsequently translated into English, Japanese, Dutch, and German. Leçons particulières, which is part novel and part autobiography, followed in 2005. For more information, visit Hélène Grimaud will sign compact discs following the concerts on Thursday and Saturday in the Lerner Lobby at the Cleveland Orchestra Store on the ground floor of Severance Hall. A selection of her albums are available for sale through the Cleveland Orchestra Store.

MAHLER born July 7, 1860 Kalischt, Bohemia (now Kalištì in the Czech Republic) died May 18, 1911 Vienna

Severance Hall 2013-14

Who would have thought that these apparently un-sym­ phonic items would have their special place in the best-loved and most frequently played of Mahler’s symphonies? The Fourth Symphony is “about” childhood, in the sense that most of Mahler’s music seems to be “about” profound is­ sues of life and death. Perhaps we are more willing to identify with the child’s world than to face the numberless existential issues that haunted Mahler throughout his life. At all events, there is a directness and charm in the Fourth Symphony that is missing from the others, with their often sprawling explora­ tion of good and evil, heaven and hell. The Fourth Symphony adopts the standard classical fourmovement design and uses a modest orchestra heavy on wood­ winds but light on brass (no trombones or tuba); there are no formidable thunderbolts and no tense musical arguments that defy the listener’s comprehension. We emerge from the sym­ phony in a glow of serenity and peace. Its origin — and a clue to its understanding — lies in Mahler’s preoccupation with the folk world of Des Knaben Wunderhorn (“The Youth’s Magic Horn”), a collection of poetry pub­ lished nearly a hundred years earlier purporting to be German folk poetry, but often half genuine, half invented. Between 1888 and 1899, Mahler set over a dozen poems from this collection for voice and piano or orchestra, some of which found their way into the symphonies he was composing at the same time. Both the Second and Third Symphonies included settings of these verses, and in the very long Third Symphony Mahler originally planned to include, as a seventh movement, a setting of a song he had written in 1892 to the Wunderhorn poem “Der Himmel hängt voller Geigen” (“Heaven is Full of Violins”). Be­ fore the Third Symphony was published (in 1898), this song was taken out and set aside as the basis of a symphony of its own. Mahler titled the song “Das himmlische Leben” (“The Heavenly Life”) and composed three new movements to precede the song, all creating an image of childhood sealed by the child’s vision of heaven in the song. When he began this Fourth Symphony, Mahler had been music director at the Vienna Opera for a little over a year, an About the Music

intense commitment that allowed him freedom to compose only in the summer months. In 1899, he bought a plot of land at Maiernigg on the Wörther Lake near the southernmost point of Austria for the express purpose of building a second home for his annual break far from the cutthroat musical politics of the capital. While his chalet was being built, Mahler began work on the Fourth Symphony at Altaussee, a similar lakeside resort in the Austrian province of Styria, where he spent the summer. By the time he resumed composition the following year, the chalet at Maiernigg was ready, and it was there that he finished the symphony on August 5, 1900. It was first performed in November 1901, at which time he had just met, but not yet married, Alma Schindler. The child’s dreams were therefore largely drawn on his own. The opening movement, in traditional symphonic form, has a disarming tunefulness, occasionally colored by jingling sleigh-bells. The clarity of Mahler’s orchestration, even when several counterpoints are heard at once, is amazing. One good tune follows another, all seeming to smile, never to grimace, and the close is exquisite. The second movement, a kind of scherzo, features a solo violin tuned higher than normal tuning to suggest a country fiddler. There are ghostly shadows in this music, mildly threat­ ening perhaps, but set aside by the gemütlich (“pleasant or con­ genial”) quality of the pulse. As so often in Mahler, he is never done until he has exhausted the implications of his material — if there are new permutations and combinations to discover, he will discover them. The third movement is a calm Adagio, particularly gen­ erous to the cellos, who present the first theme. After a while, the tempo suddenly quickens, recalling the pulse of the scherzo, with the main theme dragged into new disguises. Just when the pace seems to be running out of control, the horns put on the brakes and calm returns. But a new surprise arrives in the form of a gigantic chord of E major, important for the harp and then the timpani, which casts an ambiguous shadow over the end of the movement. The musical implications of this chord are not made clear until the end of the symphony, which will eventually end in the key of E major, as if the child’s dream has led, like a yellow brick road, to that particular vision of heaven. The last movement entrusts the vision to the soprano solo­ ist. The child imagines a carefree life in heaven, full of dancing Severance Hall 2013-14

About the Music

At a Glance Mahler composed the first three movements of his Fourth Symphony during the summers of 1899 and 1900. The fourth movement, written in 1892 as a song under the title “Das himmlische Leben” (“The Heavenly Life”) and performed in the following year, was originally intended for inclusion in the Third Symphony. The first performance of the Fourth Symphony took place on November 23, 1901, in Munich under the composer’s direction; the soprano soloist was Margarete Michalek. The United States premiere was given by Walter Damrosch and the New York Symphony Society with soprano Etta de Montjau on November 6, 1904. This symphony runs approximately 55 minutes in performance. Mahler scored it for 4 flutes (third and fourth doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (third doubling english horn), 3 clarinets (second doubling small clarinet in E-flat, third doubling bass clarinet), 3 bassoons (third doubling contrabassoon), 4 horns, 3 trumpets, timpani, percussion (bass drum, triangle, sleigh bells, glockenspiel, cymbals, tamtam), harp, and strings, with the addition — in the fourth movement — of a solo soprano voice.


and playing, good music and good food (asparagus, beans, hare, fish, wine), and full of saints and martyrs, too. The child has no qualms about imagining King Herod butchering a lamb or St. Luke slaughtering an ox. St. Peter catches fish, of course, and St. Martha, the patron saint of cooks, serves the dish. Why Mahler retained the three lines that mention St. Ursula, martyred along with eleven thousand virgins, is a mystery. Afterall, he did omit one verse of the poem, where it mentions St. Lawrence, another martyr who is also regarded as a patron saint of cooks because he was himself . . . cooked. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013    Hugh Macdonald is Avis H.

Sollt ein Fasttag etwa kommen Alle Fische gleich mit Freuden   angeschwommen! Dort läuft schon Sankt Peter Mit Netz und mit Köder Zum himmlischen Weiher hinein. Sankt Martha die Köchin muss sein!

Should a fasting-day come ’round, All the fish come joyfully   swimming to us! Already Saint Peter is running — with his net and his bait — out to the heavenly fishpond. Saint Martha will have to be the cook!

None of earth’s music can be compared to ours. Eleven thousand young maidens dare to dance together! Saint Ursula herself laughs with them!

Sung Text — Mahler Symphony No. 4














to classical around the clock.

WCLV…now also heard on 90.3 WCPN HD2


Symphony No. 1 (“Spring”) in B-flat major, Opus 38 composed 1841

was an awkward and paradoxical man. Introverted, yet passionate. Particular, yet at times uncon­ cerned. Prone to too much drinking, lazy in his studies, and yet utterly consumed and focused on his music writing when an idea hit him. Willing to buck convention, but tempering of those around him. Critical of others, but understanding. Tan­ talized by many women, yet loving just one as a soul-mate who he only partially understood. A dreamer looking for his own dream, but sometimes acting as if in a nightmare. From the evidence of his life, it now seems clear that Schumann had a manic-depressive personality. His contradic­ tory mood swings, his periods of great productivity followed by weeks of not caring. His over-working to exhaustion, his deep depressions. That he wasn’t born in a later generation where understanding and treatment might have helped, we may regret. If the journey between up and down helped give him his creative perspective, we can be thankful. Certainly his art (composing and writing) gave him an outlet into which he poured his thoughts, his demons, his passion. Schumann came to a musical career choice late. Although music had always been part of his family’s life, and he was en­ couraged to enjoy it, he did not begin playing piano until age 10 — and only later got really serious about it. At university and with his private teachers, he studied music theory and harmony for the first time in his later teens. Thus was his upbringing far from that of a young prodigy, like Mozart or Mendelssohn, bathed in a musical glow from the beginning. His father and brothers were in the publishing business, and his family wanted Robert to study law in order to guaran­ tee a satisfactory income. But he studied only half-heartedly. He dreamed more of being a great writer, a novelist — though he never committed himself to the idea. Later, his skills as a writer and editor about music contributed greatly to his small income as a fledgling composer, but sapped his time away from composing. Schumann showed some early promise in his ability to play the piano, and regularly participated in chamber music ROBERT SCHUMANN

About the Music


At a Glance Schumann composed this symphony in B-flat major in the course of four sleepless days and nights in January 1841. He orchestrated it over the following month. The first performance took place on March 31, 1841, with Felix Mendelssohn conducting the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra. The score was dedicated to Friedrich August, King of Saxony, who sent the composer a golden snuffbox as a token of his appreciation. This symphony runs about 30 minutes in performance. Schumann scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion (triangle) and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra has recorded this symphony three times: in 1946 with Erich Leinsdorf, in 1958 with George Szell, and in 1986 with Christoph von Dohnányi.

performances as a student. But he had started learning later than most virtuosos, and although he harbored a desire to be­ come a concert soloist, his lackadaisical practicing (combined paradoxically, perhaps, with too ardent work with a finger stretching machine) left him at the age of 22 without sufficient promise (and one hand less useful than the other). (There are other possible explanations for the problem with his hand, but the stretching machine amplified the defect.) Thus was Schumann the composer born . . . of necessity. He wasn’t interested enough in law, he wasn’t willing to commit himself as an author, he wasn’t focused enough on anything really, and his hands weren’t good enough as a concert pianist. Still, the piano was his instrument — just as it was the focus for many composers in the first half of the 19th century. Its sound and range had been strengthened by the advent of steel sounding boards, and its mass production had made it ubiqui­ tous for musical gatherings and towns both large and small. If there was a Piano Age, Schumann lived during it. After some early work on songs and other pieces, Schumann devoted most of a decade almost exclusively to writing piano About the Music

music. His works were unusual and different. Neither showy nor inscrutably passionate, but more personal sketches of emo­ tion. Think of them as the scrapbooks of an apprentice, for he was still learning — although some of them, such as Kreisleriana and Carnaval, are among his greatest masterpieces. The “Spring” Symphony, premiered in 1841 and subse­ quently published as No. 1, was not Schumann’s first attempt at large symphonic scale. He’d begun writing a symphony at least three times earlier, something in G minor in 1833, a couple of movements in D minor in 1835 or 1836, and sketches for a work in C minor in 1840. He abandoned each, however, unsure of his own worth as a composer or distracted by life’s day-to-day challenges. One of Schumann’s distractions — and perhaps his great­ est struggle — was how to marry Clara Wieck, the daughter of one of his piano teachers, Friedrich Wieck. Father Wieck opposed their marriage, offering constantly changing reasons — she was too young, she was too good a pianist to give up her own career, Robert couldn’t support her. Finally, after several years of negotiating, pleading, and cajoling, Robert and Clara

literally took her father to court. And it was only after a longdrawn and successful case that they were granted legal permis­ sion to marry a day before her twenty-first birthday in 1840. As marriage approached — slowly — Schumann spent a year writing songs, completing 120 lieder. This was a mag­ nificent and marvelous outpouring of talent (and masterpieces), but also a practical means of de­ riving quick income as a composer toward sup­ porting his family-to-be. One of father Wieck’s constant objections to Schumann as a son-inlaw was that not just Robert but composing in general didn’t earn enough money.    One great spur to Schumann the com­ poser was his discovery in 1839 of Franz Schubert’s C-major Symphony (later given the nickname “The Great”) among post­ humous manuscripts left with friends. Schubert arranged for its public premiere, under Felix Mendelssohn’s direction in Leipzig, and was greatly impressed with Schubert’s unknown “Great” opus. The cogs in Schumann’s mind once again turned to­ ward larger symphonic forms, through which he could claim his own rightful place among the pantheon of composers — to earn more A silhouette of respect and more money. This, perhaps even Schumann made during his lifetime. more than his own evolution as a composer, spurred him toward larger composition.    The “Spring” Symphony’s nickname is Schumann’s own, although he did not directly call it that. It was, however, very much part of how he talked about the symphony to others. He told Louis Spohr, a well-known but conservative and old­ er composer colleague, that the symphony was created “with a vernal passion . . . that always sways men even into old age and surprises them anew each year. Description and painting were not part of my intention, but I do believe that the season in which the symphony was born influenced its structure and helped make it what it is.” Schumann may have felt the cyclic reinvigoration of Springtime even more intensely than many people, given his own manic-depressive cycles and their reflection in the annual progress of seasons. In a burst of creativity, Schumann penned Severance Hall 2013-14

the entire symphony in four very intense (and largely sleepless) days and nights in January 1841. Thus, if spring was the inspiration, it was the long­ ing for spring rather than the season itself that inspired him. After years of half-hearted attempts, the symphony sprang forth realized in full, just as Spring can replace Winter with sudden abandon and purpose. Schumann’s connection between the season and the symphony intensified as he orchestrated it over the next four weeks, and he even considered naming each of the work’s four movements: 1. Beginning of Spring, 2. Evening, 3. Merry Playmate, and 4. Spring at Its Height. In the end, he left the storyline “behind the work” to inform audiences through the music alone — although he frequently mentioned the season connec­ tions to potential conductors. The “Spring” Symphony was premiered in March 1841, just two months after it was conceived, conducted in Leipzig by Felix Mendels­ sohn, who had been appointed to lead the city’s orchestra (and had be­ come Schumann’s friend). Mendelssohn’s best symphonies (Nos. 3, 4, and 5) were still in the future, so let us not ever judge Schumann for at times sounding like Mendelssohn. A horn call opens the symphony, followed almost immediately with a burst of energy that carries through all four movements. The music repeatedly gathers new drive, reinforcing the appropriateness of the symphony’s nickname. The second movement is lyric rather than languorous, as Schumann pushes us through, movement by movement, headlong toward an earnest and happy close. Few first symphonies have been created in such quick and white-hot conception. Its few potential flaws are those of youth and inexperience, rather than in lacking daring or confidence.

Gregory Wang piano

with special guest Peter Takács

Gregory Wang’s range of repertoire and in­ terests spans several centuries. In 2013, he represented the Oberlin Conservatory of Music at the Kennedy Center, playing origi­ nal transcriptions from Stravinsky’s Petrouchka. A few months later, a star-crossed affair with historical performance culminated in a debut at the harpsichord during the Montecito International Music Festival. Gregory holds a bachelor’s degree from Oberlin under the tutelage of Peter Takács. He is currently a student of Jean-Louis Haguenauer at Indiana University, where he is an associate instructor in music theory. He has had success in both national and international competitions, including his sec­ ond prize (and a full scholarship for study in Vienna the next summer) at the 2011 International Russian Music Competition. For this evening’s Fridays@7 presentation, he is presenting a mix of traditional classical works (Ginastera and Ravel) with some Argentinian inspiration along with some classically-induced improvisations.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s catalog of recordings continues to grow. The newest DVD features Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony recorded live in the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria under the direction of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst in 2012 and released in May 2013. “A great orchestra, a Bruckner expert. . . . Five out of five stars,” declared Austria’s Kurier newspaper. Released in 2012, Dvořák’s opera Rusalka on CD, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival, elicited the reviewer for London’s Sunday Times to praise 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 Or­ chestra since its opening on February 5, 1931. After that first concert, a Cleve­ land 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 Associa­ tion, 1921-1936) and his wife, Elisabeth, donated most of the funds necessary to erect this magnificent building. De­ signed by Walker & Weeks, its elegant HAILED AS ONE OF


Georgian exterior was constructed to harmonize with the classical architec­ ture 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 Mod­ ernism. An extensive renovation, resto­ ration, 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 citi­ zens for performances, meetings, and gala events each year.

Thursday October 17 at 7:30 p.m. Friday October 18 at 11:00 a.m. Saturday October 19 at 8:00 p.m.



THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Jakub Hrůša, conductor William Preucil, violin

  Experience a week exploring the highly tempestuous and deeply emotional intermingling of music and politics. Music Director Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra take a fascinating look at two highly autobiographical composers, whose lives and careers were separated by over a century, yet whose works demonstrate how artists of two eras wrestled with themes of freedom, as well as personal and collective liberty and politics. The festival includes three concerts, plus two film screenings in partnership with the Cleveland Museum of Art and the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque.

  This program juxtaposes contrasting works from Central European composers of different centuries. Cleveland Orchestra concertmaster William Preucil serves as soloist for Antonín Dvořák’s spicy and character-filled Violin Concerto — immersed in the musical traditions of the composer’s homeland. Rounding out the program, guest conductor Jakub Hrůša leads a classical symphony by Haydn (evening performances only) and Janáček’s tuneful “rhapsody for orchestra” depicting the folk hero Taras Bulba. Sponsor: BakerHostetler
