Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director October 10-13, 2013 I am pleased to welcome you to this concert, which is part of what has become an annual tradition at The Cleveland Orchestra: Student Appreciation Week. This week is just one component of a major youth movement at Severance Hall over the past two seasons — as we build the youngest audience of any orchestra in the United States.   In the first two weekends of concerts this season, over 25% of our audiences has been students!  Last year, more than 13,000 students purchased discounted tickets for concerts at Severance Hall. And this year, we are well on the way to surpassing that record achievement.  Our Student Frequent Fan Card has grown to include over 1,100 members for 2013-14, and an all-time high of 6,000 area students have already signed up for the Student Advantage Program this season. Jesse Rosen, president of the League of American Orchestras, writing last week on the Huffington Post website, praised The Cleveland Orchestra's efforts to attract new listeners.  After attending the season's opening program at Severance Hall in September, he wrote that the Orchestra is “well on its way” toward its “audacious” goal of developing the youngest orchestra audience.  “The vibe in the hall was fantastic,” he wrote.  None of this would be possible without the support of our donors. Our youth and student programs are funded through the Alexander and Sarah Cutler Fund for Student Audiences, and through The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences, created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation. These generous contributions reduce the price of admission for a new generation of audience members to enjoy the finest orchestral music in the world. 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.  Therefore, as our audience gets young and younger, Franz Welser-Möst and I want to convey our sincere appreciation to the donors for their visionary generosity, to the staff who work diligently to make the vision a reality, and to enthusiastic students in the audience, tonight and every night, for helping to secure the future of this great orchestra.  

Gary Hanson Executive Director P.S. Included in this fall’s elections is Issue 1, a replacement levy for services to our community's most vulnerable citizens through Cuyahoga County's Health and Human Services. This funding helps ensure a safety net across our community for children, families, and seniors. Every vote can make a critical difference in this election.

Franz Welser-Möst has led efforts to have The Cleveland Orchestra perform at public schools in Northeast Ohio, including this performance in October 2010 at Cleveland’s John Adams High School, which included Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring.

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

expansion of education and community programs in Northeast Ohio to fea­ ture music as an integral and regular part of everyday life for more people, in­ cluding the launch this past spring of an “At Home” neighborhood residency program that brings The Cleveland Orchestra to a single neighborhood or town

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

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.

Cleveland Orchestra musicians perform chamber music by Beethoven and Shostakovich in Reinberger Chamber Hall at Severance Hall prior to the Orchestra’s concert on Saturday, October 26. The Cinematheque screens Stanley Kubrick’s classic film A Clockwork Orange to open the Festival on Tuesday, October 22. The movie prominently features music from Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. John Ewing (Cinematheque co-founder and director and curator of film at the Cleveland Museum of Art) will introduce the film. 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 Shostako­ vich 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

Gary Hanson, executive director of The Cleveland Orchestra, has announced two new appointments to the Orchestra’s management team. 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. She was the 2013 recipient of the Orchestra League’s Helen M. Thompson Award for extraordinary achievement and commitment in the field of orchestra management.

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. Murphy Foundation. The Cleveland Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial Campaign is building the Orchestra’s endowment through its centennial in 2018, while securing broad-based annual support from across Northeast Ohio.

OrchestraNews Orchestra’s recording of Bruckner 4th receives praise and awards The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst’s live recording of Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4, released earlier this year, is receiving wide acclaim in reviews from around the world — including a new award announced this month. The Bruckner Society of America has just announced that it is giving this DVD its “best video of the year” designation, lauding the performance and the presentation.    The performance was filmed in 2012 at the beautiful 17th-century baroque Abbey of St. Florian in Austria. Emmy Award-winner Brian Large directed the video recording. This is the first video produced of the recent critical edition of the 1888 version of Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony, edited by Benjamin Korstvedt and published in 2004 as part of the Bruckner Collected Works edition.    Reviewers’ praise includes:    “How does one approach Anton Bruckner and his exuberant Fourth Symphony distinctively? Franz Welser-Möst and his fellow Clevelanders accomplished it. And in such a way!” —Vienna Zeitung, June 2013    “A great orchestra, a Bruckner expert. . . . Five out of five stars.” —Kurier (Austria), May 2013    “In St. Florian, Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra breathed new life into this version. A glorious concert.” —Die Presse (Austria), May 2013    Clasart produced the recording, which is being distributed by Arthaus and Naxos. The Cleveland Orchestra’s long-term partnership with Clasart has resulted in five Bruckner DVDs to date. Founded in Munich in 1977, Clasart is part of the Tele München Group. The Cleveland Orchestra extends special thanks to Raiffeisenlandesbank Oberösterreich and Tele München Group for their ongoing support for electronic media projects.

Under 18s Free ticketing program extended to new series and concerts at Severance Hall

Committed to welcoming more young people and families, The Cleveland Orchestra has significantly expanded its “Under 18s Free” program for the 2013-14 season at Severance Hall — to include forty-six concerts from September to May, an increase from just fourteen “Under 18s Free” concerts in the 2012-13 season. “Under 18s Free” tickets will be available for all family programming at Severance Hall, along with Cleveland Orchestra concerts on Fridays and Sundays. The concerts include the Family Concert Series, PNC Musical Rainbows, Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra and Youth Chorus concerts, as well as The Cleveland Orchestra’s Friday morning and evening concerts and Sunday matinees. “We’re dedicated to serving more people in our community,” says Gary Hanson, the Orchestra’s executive director. “The expansion of our ‘Under 18s Free’ program will provide access to more than three times as many performances for families and young people this season.” Since the creation of the Center for Future Audiences in 2010, funding from the Center has helped enable nearly 60,000 young people to attend Blossom Music Festival concerts and performances at Severance Hall. The Center’s ticket initiatives include “Under 18s Free,” Student Advantage, and Student Ambassadors programs. The Center for Future Audiences, created with a lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation, was established to fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeastern Ohio. The “Under 18s Free” program offers free tickets (one per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people ages 7-17. (Holiday concerts and Celebrity Series concerts are excluded from the “Under 18s Free” offer.) Individual free tickets for Severance Hall concerts for this program must be purchased through the Severance Hall Ticket Office; series purchases can be made online beginning later this month.

While deftly managing the Orchestra’s largest department of volunteers and part-time staff, Judith has run countless laps around Severance Hall, always with a smile and ever toward creating the best possible patron experience — across countless concerts, graduations, and special events. Judith is the author of the Orchestra’s first Front of House Personnel Handbook. “The love and respect Judith has for The Cleveland Orchestra and Severance Hall are evident in everything she does,” says Mary Ann Makee, director of facilities. “Her dedication over the past sixteen years, and her investment of time and thought in important initiatives such as the

Severance Hall Americans with Disabilities Committee, have been extraordinary.” Judith and her husband, George, are world travelers — and have enjoyed experiencing The Cleveland Orchestra in concert halls across Europe (where Judith examines the front-of-house staffing and services with a careful eye). She was a professional dancer earlier in her career, and helps raise money for the Yes . . . I Can(!) Dance program at the JCC for people with Parkinson’s disease.

Student Appreciation Week October 10-13 Student attendance continues to grow at Severance Hall

As The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 season gets underway, more Student Ad­ vantage Members, Frequent Fan Card holders, Student Ambassadors, and student groups are contributing to the continued success of these programs. The Orchestra’s ongoing Student Advantage Program provides opportu­ nities for students to attend concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom through discounted ticket offers. Membership is free to join and rewards members with discounted ticket purchases. For this season, a record 6,000 students have joined. The Student Frequent Fan Card was introduced a year ago with great suc­ cess. The program is continuing to grow, with the number of Frequent Fan Card holders have tripling so far this season over 2012-13. Priced at $50, the Fan Card offers students unlimited single tickets (one ticket per card holder) to weekly clas­ sical subscription concerts all season long. The Student Ambassador program is also growing. These young volunteers help to promote the Orchestra’s concert offerings and student programs directly on campuses across Northeast Ohio. Also this year, a group of Student Marketing Advisors was formed to help the Orchestra incorporate student feedback and insight to programs, and give local marketing majors a chance to work closely with the Orchestra’s sales team. In addition, attendance through Student Group sales are also bringing in more and more young people to Cleveland Orchestra concerts. From as far as Toronto and Nashville, these groups make up an integral part of the overall suc­ cess toward generating participation and interest among young people. All of these programs are supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences, through the Alexander and Sarah Cutler Fund for Student Audiences. The Center for Future Audiences was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.

The Cleveland Orchestra extends a special welcome this week to members of the Student Advantage Program.

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Play, Horn& Symphony

brings together three composers from two countries — and multiple sensibilities. And offering a unique combination of sounds, including a very special pairing of solo instruments. The concert begins with Gabriel Fauré’s often gentle, at times glimmering, at times gloomy, at times shimmering suite of music for the play Pelléas et Mélisande, by Maurice Maeterlinck. While the play inspired several composers to create music, including Debussy’s impressionistic opera, each created a unique view of this storyy of love, betrayal, and misplaced trust. At the end of the concert, another Frenchman appears, in the form of the Symphony in D minor by César Franck. ranck. This great work defies the notion that France could not produce roduce a great symphonist, even if Franck could only producee one. The composer’s understanding of musical coloring (from m his years as an organist) and form (as a great teacher) creeated a seamless work of beauty and drive — and good od tunes for humming. While once a staple in the repertoire, guest conductor Marek Janowski leads rare-ish Cleveland Orchestra performances of this more recently neglected masterpiece. In between, we have the first of three major works by Benjamin Britten on The Cleveland Orchestra’s schedule this season, in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of this great English composer’s birth. Britten’s unique sensitivity to setting the English language, and his special understanding of balancing different voices, is on full display in the Serenade for T Tenor, H Horn, and Strings. In this mesmerizing soundworld, the strings are joined by the Orchestra’s principal horn player, Richard King, and tenor Matthew Polenzani. —Eric Sellen

Introducing the Concerts

Suite: Pelleas and Melisande, Opus 80 created 1901 from the opera composed 1898

decided he would make an op­ era out of Maeterlinck’s play Pelléas et Mélisande, following its première in 1893, he had to secure the playwright’s permis­ sion — especially since he planned to set the text directly, not as reworked into a libretto of verse, which was normal practice at the time. When theater managers awoke to the novelty and subtle appeal of the play, it was staged all over Europe, always with incidental music to join together scenes or underscore moments of particular importance or tension. Few plays, in fact, were ever staged in the 19th century without musicians in the pit, and because Maeterlinck’s highly suggestive and atmospheric drama was perfect for musical illustration, a number of com­ posers were called on to provide incidental music. Gabriel Fauré’s music — from which this suite was drawn — was commissioned in 1898 for a production in London, which was taken to New York soon after. Sibelius’s equally famous music for the play was first heard in 1905 in Helsinki. Arnold Schoenberg composed a richly scored tone poem on the sub­ ject in 1903. Fauré arranged his four-movement concert suite in 1901. All in all, it was a time of many musical views on the play’s subject and subjective atmosphere. Fauré’s beautiful, wistful music is perfect for the halflight of the drama. The play tells, in muted tones and against a dimly medieval background, of Mélisande’s love for Pelléas, half-brother of her husband, Golaud. The latter is character­ ized by the second main theme of the Prélude (woodwind and solo cello), and, at the end, his horncall is heard in the depths of the forest. The movement has been described as “less a dé­ cor than a state of mind,” with some chordal string writing strongly reminiscent of Fauré’s well-known Requiem, written earlier. The second movement, La Fileuse, follows a long tradi­ tion of spinning-wheel pieces, and moves to the minor mode for a melody that is fully exploited in the last movement. The Sicilienne is the best-known movement of the suite, with its characteristic and charming melody and its suggestions of modal color. It had been composed earlier for a different purpose and has little connection with the play, but its charm WHEN CLAUDE DEBUSSY

is inescapable. The final movement, in contrast, is charged with the tragic emotions of the last act, when Mélisande dies under the remorseful gaze of Golaud and his household. When pressed for time, Fauré sometimes passed the or­ chestration of his works to his pupils. After his death it was disclosed that the orchestrator of this suite (and much of the entire full score of incidental music) was Charles Koechlin, who was Fauré’s biographer and himself a composer of unrec­ ognized achievement. This suite was a task he undertook with exceptional skill. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

Hugh Macdonald is Avis H. Blewett Professor Emeritus of Music at Washington University in St. Louis and is a noted authority on French music. He has written books on Beethoven, Berlioz, and Scriabin.   

At a Glance Fauré wrote his incidental music to Maurice Maeterlinck’s drama Pelléas and Mélisande in the spring of 1898, and conducted the first performance that year on June 21 at London’s Prince of Wales Theatre; the orchestrations for the 19 numbers were prepared by Charles Koechlin. Fauré subsequently extracted a three-movement suite, creating a full orchestration on the basis of Koechlin’s work. The first performance of the suite took place on February 3, 1901, at the Concerts Lamoureux in Paris, with Camille Chevillard conducting. In 1909, Fauré added the “Sicilienne” as a fourth movement to the suite, utilizing Koechlin’s 1898 orchestration. This suite runs about 15 minutes in performance. Fauré’s orchestration calls for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, 1 or 2 harps, and strings.

Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings, Opus 31 composed 1943

hundredth birthday falls on No­ vember 22 of this year. He always regarded his birthday as an auspicious date because it is also St. Cecilia’s Day, dedicated to the patron saint of music — a day celebrated in a great series of Odes by Henry Purcell, the 17th-century English composer with whom Britten always felt a special affinity. The centennial allows us to look back at his achievement and be reminded once again how immensely varied and enduring his music can be. Britten’s first opera, Peter Grimes, performed in London in June 1945, laid to rest the pre-war notion, widely held, that he was merely very clever. This is now one of the few 20th-cen­ tury operas that belong firmly in the repertoire of the world’s opera houses. And the series of operas that followed, all very different one from another, are regularly staged. In the 1950s, he had passionate admirers who formed something of a cult around the Aldeburgh Festival, held every year since 1948 in Britten’s hometown. The cult gradually meta­ morphosed into a worldwide recognition that each year’s new offerings were likely to be major events, as indeed they were. Britten’s music not only carries a powerful message, usually concerning the exploitation and vulnerability of weaker souls, it also displays an exceptional versatility. Writing for children or amateurs, he produced such effective pieces as the Hymn to St. Cecilia and Noye’s Fludde; his chamber music includes four string quartets and a series of works for cellist Mstislav Rostropovich (definitely not for amateurs). Of his works for orchestra, the Sinfonia da Requiem and The Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra never fail to impress. The War Requiem is unequalled among modern choral works. His feeling for the English language is marvelously illustrated in a long series of song cycles and folksong arrangements — and including his Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings. There are choral works, ballets, and chamber operas, too, all ready for performance and all repaying our curiosity and admiration. Britten left England for the United States in May 1939, alarmed at the darkening clouds toward war in Europe, and keen to follow his friend, the poet W. H. Auden, who felt that BENJAMIN BRITTEN’S

being useful as a creative artist was no longer possible in Brit­ ain. Britten returned in early 1942, drawn by a powerful at­ tachment to his country, and in particular to a certain part of the country, East Anglia, where he had grown up and which he made his permanent home. At the time, he had the promise of $1000 from the Koussevitsky Foundation as a commission for an opera, and he had the seeds of an opera about the Suffolk fisherman Peter Grimes already planted in his mind. Before composition of the opera began in earnest (early in 1944), Britten composed a number of smaller works, perhaps wisely allowing his conception of the opera to take shape with­ out haste. The finest of these is the Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings, which he composed in March and April 1943. Throughout his life, many of his works were written for his long-standing partner, the tenor Peter Pears, but he responded eagerly to several other great musicians he encountered, in­ cluding Julian Bream, Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, and Mstislav Rostropovich. For the Serenade, the inspiration was the phe­ nomenal horn playing of Dennis Brain, himself the son of the celebrated horn player Aubrey Brain. Britten heard Dennis playing in the Royal Air Force Orchestra, for which he wrote a number of pieces with ever-harder solos for the principal horn. The pairing of tenor voice and French horn in the Serenade is a particularly happy match, and both the choice of poems and Britten’s setting of each one reveal his genius. The theme is the night, the falling darkness, and the soul’s conscience do­ ing its work. A Prologue for the horn alone is written for the natural harmonics of the instrument, some of which are out of tune with the modern chromatic scale, to suggest the natural world that fosters the beauty and terror of the night. Pastoral is by the obscure 17th-century poet Charles Cotton, full of naive images of the dusk and illuminated by a haunting downward arpeggio in both voice and horn. Tennyson’s Nocturne brilliantly evokes the distant bugle at nightfall, followed by Blake’s dark Elegy about the worm in the rose and the impermanence of beauty. The horn’s ago­ nized falling half-steps in a long introduction are echoed by the tenor’s first words, “O rose.” And at the end, the same two notes connect directly to the grim Lyke-Wake Dirge, a 15thcentury poem in north English dialect about the soul’s ordeals in purgatory. Britten brilliantly creates a series of variations to accompany the unvarying refrain in the voice, with the horn Severance Hall 2013-14

About the Music

At a Glance Britten wrote his Serenade for Tenor, Horn, and Strings in 1943 (while hospitalized for a case of measles). Earlier that year, the young horn virtuoso Dennis Brain had asked Britten to write a piece for him. The first performance was given on October 15, 1943, at London’s Wigmore Hall, with Peter Pears as the tenor soloist and Dennis Brain on horn, conducted by Walter Goehr. This work runs about 25 minutes in performance. Britten scored it for solo tenor, solo horn, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this work for the first time with this weekend’s concerts.

joining in at the climax and the music gradually fading to a single line. Particularly disturbing is the dislocation by one beat of the last line “And Christe receive thy saule” each time it is heard. Ben Jonson’s Hymn strikes a brighter note, with its invocation to Di­ ana the huntress (and the moon goddess) and its virtuoso horn part. The final poem is Keats’s Sonnet, in which the singer pleads “Save me from cu­ rious Conscience . . . burrowing like a mole.” The strings alone, divided into many parts, accompany this song, and they vanish at the end into the darkness of the night. Meanwhile, the horn player has moved offstage to play the Epilogue, a literal echo of the Prologue. Composed when Britten was at the height of his powers, the Serenade remains one of his most moving and accomplished works. All the more striking that soon after he wrote it he described it in a letter to a friend, with characteristic understatement, as “not important stuff, but quite pleasant, I think.” —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

The day’s grown old; the fainting sun Has but a little way to run, And yet his steeds, with all his skill, Scarce lug the chariot down the hill.

The shadows now so long do grow, That brambles like tall cedars show; Mole hills seem mountains, and the ant Appears a monstrous elephant.

A very little, little flock Shades thrice the ground that it would stock; Whilst the small stripling following them Appears a mighty Polypheme.

And now on benches all are sat, In the cool air to sit and chat, Till Phoebus, dipping in the west, Shall lead the world the way to rest.

O hark, O hear! how thin and clear, And thinner, clearer, farther going! O sweet and far from cliff and scar The horns of Elfland faintly blowing! Blow, let us hear the purple glens replying: Blow, bugle; answer, echoes, dying, dying, dying.

O love, they die in yon rich sky, They faint on hill or field or river: Our echoes roll from soul to soul, And grow for ever and for ever. Blow, bugle, blow, set the wild echoes flying. And answer, echoes, answer, dying, dying, dying.

Earth, let not thy envious shade Dare itself to interpose; Cynthia’s shining orb was made Heav’n to clear when day did close: Bless us then with wishèd sight, Goddess excellently bright.

Lay thy bow of pearl apart, And thy crystal shining quiver; Give unto the flying hart Space to breathe, how short so-ever: Thou that mak’st a day of night, Goddess excellently bright.

O soft embalmer of the still midnight, Shutting, with careful fingers and benign, Our gloom‑pleas’d eyes, embower’d from the light, Enshaded in forgetfulness divine: O soothest Sleep! if so it please thee, close, In midst of this thine hymn my willing eyes. Or wait the “Amen” ere thy poppy throws Around my bed its lulling charities. Then save me, or the passèd day will shine Upon my pillow, breeding many woes, Save me from curious conscience, that still lords Its strength for darkness, burrowing like a mole; Turn the key deftly in the oilèd wards, And seal the hushèd casket of my Soul.

Symphony in D minor created 1887-88

César Franck has become enshrined in cliché and caricature, for his name is never mentioned without refer­ ence to the organ (his main instrument), to his disciples (his students), and to cyclic form (which he did not invent and did not exclusively apply). The picture of a saintly man leading a school of young composers somehow separate from the main­ stream clings to the mythology of French music in the later 19th century. Yet one can easily listen to this great Symphony in D minor and have no awareness that its composer was an organist or a Catholic or a teacher or the bearer of saintly moral qualities. The last attribute is in any case open to doubt, since he was a man like any other, prone to human failings. Franck was indeed the object of a hagiography stemming from his leading student, Vincent d’Indy, a man not given to half-measures, who was commendably anxious, as a militant Catholic, to raise his teacher’s reputation to a level of sanctity in the manner so successfully adopted by the Germanic disciples of Richard Wagner. As a young man, Franck had been introduced to the world as a virtuoso pianist, soon recognized by Franz Liszt. But much of his life passed in relative obscurity; he was forty years old be­ fore he emerged as a composer above the ordinary run. He later became known as an organist and a teacher, which hindered any recognition of his very real aspirations to write operas — a handicap also encountered by both Lalo and Saint-Saëns who, having earned early reputations as “symphonists,” could not be trusted in the theater because of the persistence of French prejudice about the elite exclusivity of the “scène lyrique.” Franck played a part in the great resurgence of French mu­ sic after the country’s political humiliations of 1870.

having taken over from Saint-Saëns. The Symphony in D minor was written very speedily in the middle of this feverish existence. Urged to compose a sym­ phony by his students (since great composers were expected to match themselves with Beethoven), the real prod toward its writing probably came from three symphonies by Franck’s con­ temporaries that had all been heard for the first time early in 1887. These were Lalo’s Symphony in G minor (a sadly neglected work), d’Indy’s Symphonie sur un chant montagnard français (another work of great interest), and Saint-Saëns’s Symphony No. 3, well known today for the prominence of the organ part. Despite, or perhaps because of, an energetic campaign on behalf of the composer launched by his students, Franck’s work had a mixed reception when it was performed, led not by Charles Lamoureux, whom Franck would have preferred (he was unaware that Lamoureux had turned against his music), but instead at the inferior Société des Concerts in February 1889. It has always aroused contrary opinions. While Debussy de­ scribed it as “ébouriffante,” which might be translated as “stun­ ning,” Ravel took exception to its orchestration, especially the “awkward” double basses and the “screaming” trumpets. The British writer Donald Tovey classed it as a “wonderful and most lovable” symphony. Yet at its first performance in Boston, in 1899, the Boston Herald, shame to say, declared: “One yearns for something that suggests joyousness of spirit, for something that uplifts if only for a moment to vary the sense of depression that fills the listener.” Franck was not aiming for the flaky jollity the critic de­ sired, but instead more for a serious exploration of symphonic thought. And, indeed, the Symphony in D minor does uplift many with something like the conviction that all serious sym­ phonies since Beethoven aspire to. Set in three movements rather than the usual four, Franck’s symphony pursued the course of thematic integration that he learned from Schubert and Liszt, and which Saint-Saëns deployed with such success in his Third Symphony (structured in just two movements). The accumulation of themes becomes more intense as the work proceeds, so that the finale gathers all the threads of the argu­ ment together. The music proceeds from statement to conclu­ sion in the manner of finely judged rhetoric, and the listener is left with a sense of wholeness matched by relatively few late 19th-century symphonies, so many notorious for their sprawl­ About the Music

ing dimensions. At forty minutes, Franck’s Symphony can be classed as a compact and compelling work. From the beginning of the first movement, the listener is aware of the music’s tendency to shift instantly from key to key. D minor is firmly established at the start both of the opening Lento section and of the Allegro to which it quickly leads, but other keys keep intervening, and the whole opening sequence from slow to fast is soon repeated a minor third higher, in F minor. F minor leads to F major, the relative major of D minor, so that a skeleton of firm tonality underpins the flesh of shifting keys. However far and however capriciously the music seems to move from key to key, the sense of homecoming at the end of the movement (and at the end of the work) is overwhelm­ ingly strong. The music is never hurried. The words non troppo, mean­ ing “not too much,” modify the Allegro marking of both first and last movements. The middle movement is not a slow movement, as might be expected in a symphony, nor is it a scherzo, a style that so many symphonists strived to write. It is, instead, a plaintive song for english horn accompanied by harp and pizzicato strings. Franck regarded this as one of his finest inspirations. The concept’s ramifications reach far, and it breeds a whispy triplet figure in the strings that gives a magical delicacy to the work. Even in the finale, the influence of the middle movement is felt, for its themes are not yet spent, and the buoyant step that opens the last movement blends imper­ ceptibly with the steady tread of the english horn’s melody and even with the main themes of the first movement. Symphonic integration had never been so skillfully achieved. The Symphony in D minor was dedicated to Franck’s stu­ dent Henri Duparc, composer of a tiny body of music includ­ ing an exquisite series of songs. In 1935, the manuscript was accidentally destroyed in a fire at the Duparc family chateau.

At a Glance Franck completed his only symphony in 1888 and dedicated it to the composer Henri Duparc, a friend and former student. The first performance was given on February 17, 1889, by the Concerts du Conservatoire conducted by Jules Garçin. The symphony was introduced to the United States on April 14, 1899, by Wilhelm Gericke and the Boston Symphony Orchestra. This symphony runs about 40 minutes in performance. Franck scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 2 cornets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, harp, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed this symphony in January 1921 with founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff. Most recently, Andrew Davis led a weekend of performances at Severance Hall in May 2008.

He has served as artistic director of the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra since 2002, and in 2008 was offered a lifetime position with that orchestra. He made his Cleveland Orchestra debut in February 2012. Born in Warsaw, Poland, and educated in Germany, Marek Janowski held assistant positions in Aachen, Co­ logne, Düsseldorf, and Hamburg. He served as general music director in Freiburg im Breisgau (1973-75) and in Dortmund (1975-79). His international reputation grew rapidly, and he soon found himself conducting opera around the world. Mr. Janowski has led performances with the world’s renowned opera houses, including those of Berlin, Chicago, Ham­ burg, Munich, New York, Paris, San Francisco, and Vienna. In the 1990s, he eased back his operatic schedule to concentrate more on orchestral repertoire. Over the decades, Marek Janowski also served as music director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France (1984-2000), chief conductor of Co­ logne’s Gürzenich-Orchester (1986-90), and as principal guest conductor of the Deutsche Symphonie-Orchester Berlin (1997-99). More recently, he was music director of the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande in Geneva (2005-2012), music director of the Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo (2000-05) and also chief conductor with the Dresden Philharmonic (2001-03). In demand as guest conductor across Europe and North America, Marek Janowski has worked on a regular basis with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, and the San Francisco Symphony. Other appearances have included enagements with the Budapest Festival Orchestra, Danish National Symphony Orchestra, Hamburg’s North German Radio Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, and Zurich’s Tonhalle Orchestra. Marek Janowski has led many recordings during the course of his career. His current multi-season series with the Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra of all ten of Wagner’s mature operas in concert form is also being committed to disc by PentaTone ������������������������������������������������������������������������ �������������������������������������������������������������� — with several of these live concert recordings receiving par­ ticular praise for the conductor’s attention to detail, overall pacing, and unified musical approach. His earlier studio recording of Wagner’s Ring cycle on RCA with the Staatskapelle Dresden (1980-83) remains highly praised. His recent cy­ cle of Bruckner symphonies for PentaTone also has received critical acclaim.

VI CH BY FRANK J. OTERI Severance Hall 2013-14

between the death of Lud­ wig van Beet­hoven and the emergence of Dmitri Shostakovich as a composer was a time of transformative change — from the advent of electricity, recorded sound, and motion pictures to the unleash­ ing of the destructive power of modern warfare, the globalization of the world, and an enlarging struggle for human rights, liberty, and freedoms. Even so, Beethoven and Shostakovich’s music and their shared outlook on humanity’s place in the world show a re­ markable kinship. Beethoven and Shostakovich both began their compositional careers as child prodigies and were also formidable piano virtuo­ sos. They both shared their most private thoughts in their string T H E C E N T U RY T H AT T R A N S P I R E D

quartets, but made their most important public musical state­ ments with their symphonies. In fact, both took the abstract in­ strumental genre of the symphony and used it to tell compelling narratives. For example, both composers created symphonies that attempted to sonically convey the concept of fate — perhaps most notably for Beethoven in his Fifth Symphony and for Shostako­ vich in his tragic Eighth Symphony, which he composed dur­ ing the Second World War. (Both of these symphonies are among those being performed as part of The Cleveland Orchestra’s “Fate and Freedom” Festival, October 22-26.) Works such as these reveal that Beethoven and Shostako­ vich were consummate musical dramatists, yet opera proved to be something of a quagmire in both of their careers. The strained relationships both composers had with the politically powerful are also equally legendary — Beethoven’s disdain for authority and aristocracy perhaps best exemplified by his crossing out the dedication of his Third Symphony, the “Eroi­ ca” (or “heroic”), to Napoleon upon learning that that small man had declared himself an emperor; and Shostakovich’s run-ins with a dictator even more ruthless than Napoleon, Joseph Stalin. A curious correlation to Beethoven’s abandoned Eroica dedica­ tion is Shostakovich’s abortive attempt at creating a “Lenin Sym­ phony,” which he described working on 1938. Such a symphony never materialized; in its place was the purely instrumental Sixth Symphony in 1939. (The Cleveland Orchestra pairs the Eroica with this Sixth Symphony on Thursday, October 24.) Beethoven and Shostakovich also both suffered from chronic poor health in their later years, yet their final composi­ tions seem to transcend the vagaries of human existence. After their deaths, each was hailed as a champion for individual artistic freedom who triumphed despite often adverse personal condi­ tions. Nowadays musicologists as well as avid fans are still at­ tempting to find hidden meanings buried in their scores — such as the allusions to Freemasonry in Beethoven’s Fourth Symphony (performed on October 25) or secret autobiographical ciphers in Shostakovich’s Tenth Symphony (performed on October 26). But the parallels run much deeper than that. While Haydn and Mozart both hinted at it, Beethoven was the first composer to fully imbue the symphony with the same narrative and emo­ tional heft as a novel, play, or epic poem. Shostakovich, while certainly not the only significant symphonist of his era, was among the few composers who remained steadfastly committed Fate and Freedom

Beethoven’s abrasiveness was notorious and he never apologized; Shostakovich reinvented his outward musical persona simply to survive.

to creating large musical statements in this medi­ um at a time when most composers rejected the symphony as an anach­ ronism. Shostakovich completed a total of fif­ teen symphonies over the course of nearly half a century. For Shostakovich, like many Soviet musicians, Beethoven’s music remained the pre-eminent role model — the greatest repertoire an instrumen­ talist or a conductor could interpret and the standard bearer for what music was to be. A bust of this key compositional hero was a fixture of Shostakovich’s writing studio. And, fittingly, the Soviet quartet that premiered nearly all of Shostakovich’s string quartets (13 of the 15) was named the Beethoven Quartet. So deep was the influence of Beethoven on the young Shostakovich that the central theme for his earliest multi-movement orchestral work, the Theme and Variations in B-flat minor, Opus 3, which he composed at the age of 15, bears an uncanny resemblance to the most famous theme of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Following Beethoven’s precedent in that monumental sym­ phony, Shostakovich also added a chorus to the final movements of his Second and Third symphonies — although both of these early compositions take nascent Soviet patriotism to an almost unbearably propagandistic level. (There is, however, a later work that clearly echoes the pathos of Beethoven’s setting of Schiller’s paean to universal brotherhood, Shostakovich’s controversial Symphony No. 13, “Babi Yar,” a work which also sets the words of a major poet, Yevgeny Yevtushenko, an outspoken critic of in­ justice in the Soviet Union. But Shostakovich’s 13th Symphony, which was virtually banned in the Eastern Bloc for nearly a de­ cade after its first performance and finally entered the repertoire after a copy of the score was smuggled into the West, is a far cry from an Ode to Joy; if anything, it is an Ode to Despair!) between these two com­ posers, there are also some stark differences between Beethoven and Shostakovich which are equally fascinating. Beethoven was a lifelong bachelor whose romantic liaisons will forever be DESPITE THE DEEP CONNECTIONS

shrouded in mystery; Shostakovich was married three times. Beethoven was notorious for his abrasiveness and never apologized; the castigated Shostakovich reinvented his composi­ tional persona several times during his life to survive the cultural purges that Stalin unleashed and ultimately triumphed because of this — Shostakovich famously declared his masterful Fifth Symphony to be “a Soviet artist’s reply to just criticism” and the work was an instant sensation both at home and abroad and it re­ mains so to this day. Perhaps most strikingly, cinema did not exist during Beethoven’s lifetime and writing music for movies was an im­ portant revenue stream for Shostakovich throughout his career — in fact his 35 film soundtracks dwarf the combined total of his number of symphonies and string quartets. Shostakovich’s film scores also allowed him greater freedom to experiment than he had most of the time with his music for the concert hall; sev­ eral of his soundtracks include music featuring the theremin, an early electronic instrument that would become a hallmark of American horror and sci-fi movie scores years after Shostakovich pioneered its use in motion pictures. Beethoven, of course, did not live into the age of electricity and therefore could never have tinkered with a theremin. He did, however use a glass armonica (a musical curiosity that sounds similarly otherworldly) for the incidental music he composed for the 1814 production of Johann Friedrich Duncker’s play Leonore Prohaska, music that is rarely revived nowadays. During the week-long Fate and Freedom Festival, The Cleveland Orchestra’s juxtaposition of some of the greatest works by Beethoven and Shostakovich — along with a rare screening of the 1929 silent film The New Babylon featuring Shostakovich’s very first film score — offers audiences a unique opportunity to reflect on how each of these composers responded to the cen­ tral concerns of their respective eras and how their now timeless work continues to have a deep impact on all of us.

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 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.

OCTOBER 22-26

  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.   See details of events in the   concert calendar on pages 90-91.

  In the 1960s, Leon Fleisher performed in what are regarded among the finest recordings of the Beethoven piano concertos — with The Cleveland Orchestra under the baton of George Szell. Now, for these oneof-a-kind concerts in Cleveland, Fleisher returns as conductor with a remarkable pianist and Cleveland favorite, Mitsuko Uchida, for not-to-be-missed performances of two of Beethoven’s towering concertos.
