Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director October 2013 This month, we move the heart of the 2013-14 season, the twelfth of Franz Welser-Möst’s tenure as music director. The artistic excellence for which the Orchestra has long been famous is a core value that has been enhanced under his leadership.  At the same time, under Franz’s leadership, the Orchestra’s commitment to serving Northeast Ohio is stronger than ever.   Indeed, to Franz, the Orchestra’s dedication to artistic excellence can only thrive if we are committed to being relevant and vital to the community that supports us.  Music education, long one of The Cleveland Orchestra’s core pillars, is central to Franz’s vision for this institution’s future. For Franz, music brings people together — across genres, cultures, countries, and generations.  Ensemble music-making, whether by amateurs or professionals, gives meaning to the lives of those participating; for students, music helps inspire the creativity necessary for the long-term vitality of society.  To inspire music-making among young people, Franz and the Orchestra’s musicians perform in local schools and share their knowledge and enthusiasm across a range of programs and offerings. Taking the Orchestra into local neighborhoods, Franz will be at the forefront of the Orchestra’s next “At Home” neighborhood residency, just announced for May 2014 in partnership with Lakewood community businesses and organizations. Like last season’s inaugural event, “The Cleveland Orchestra at Home in Gordon Square,” the 2014 program will be a week-long residency that immerses the Orchestra in a neighborhood, offering a series of events — from musicians visiting area schools, to ensemble performances in local hot spots, to a public concert featuring the entire Orchestra.  All free and open to everyone. Looking even further ahead, to the Orchestra’s 100th Season in 2017-18, Franz has articulated a vision for our Centennial that celebrates the community that has nurtured the Orchestra since its founding and continues to support it through extraordinary generosity, alongside a series of programs and initiatives that look forward, laying a foundation for our second century. Through excellence, innovation, and collaboration, and by focusing on producing artistic and educational experiences of the highest quality, Franz is leading this institution as an example for our industry worldwide, while serving the interests and needs of the Orchestra’s hometown. 

Gary Hanson 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 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.

NOVEMBER 1929 — Just two weeks after the Stock Market Crash, and still wearing a black armband in mourning for the death of his wife, Elisabeth, earlier in the year, John L. Severance breaks ground for the construction of Severance Hall.

and around the globe, The Cleveland Orchestra 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 Festival, in residencies from Miami to Vienna, and on tour around the world, The Cleveland Orchestra sets standards of artistic excellence, creative programming, and active community engagement. With the 2013-14 season, Franz Welser-Möst enters his twelft h year leading the ensemble, with a commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. This artistic partnership continues to move the ensemble forward through a series of new and ongoing initiatives, including: IN PE RFORMANCE S AT HOME

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


About the Orchestra

The Cleveland Orchestra

for an intensive week of special activities and performances, as well as the broadening 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 demonstrated results at Severance Hall and Blossom; a variety of new concert offerings (including KeyBank Fridays@7 and Celebrity 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 ongoing 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 appearances 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 orchestras. Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s home brought a special pride to the ensemble and its hometown, as well as providing an enviable and intimate acoustic environment in which to develop and refine the Orchestra’s artistry. Year-round performances became a reality in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facilities in the United States.

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

marks Franz Welser-Möst’s twelfth year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with a long-term commitment extending to the Orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his direction, the Orchestra is acclaimed for its continuing artistic excellence, is 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 historic championship of new composers through commissions and premieres, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Mr. Welser-Möst 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 performances 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 conservatories, 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 Festival and Carnegie Hall. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-André Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, 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

Music Director


in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the MozartDa Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012 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 company 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 Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include appearances in concert 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 director (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 recordings of live performances of five of Bruckner’s symphonies, presented in three acoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Severance Hall). With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as an all-Wagner album featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman. DVD releases on the EMI label have included Mr. Welser-Möst leading Zurich Opera productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Der Rosenkavalier, Fierrabras, and Peter Grimes. For his talents and dedication, Mr. Welser-Möst has received honors that include recognition from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights, honorary membership in the Vienna Singverein, appointment as an Academician of the European Academy of Yuste, a Gold Medal from the Upper Austrian government for his work as a cultural ambassador, a Decoration of Honor from the Republic of Austria for his artistic achievements, and the Kilenyi Medal from the Bruckner Society of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

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


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 fall. The Bruckner Society of America has just announced that it is giving this DVD its “best video of the year” ear 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 thee recent critical edition of the 1888 8 version of Bruckner’s Fourth Symmphony, edited by Benjamin Korsttvedt and published in 2004 as part art 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.

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 for some series are available online.

Concert Program — Week 6a




T H U R S D AY A N D S A T U R D AY — Franz Welser-Möst leads a program featuring two composers’ very different takes on religious devotion and meaning. Beethoven, who was not a regular churchgoer, believed strongly in human knowledge and reason, balanced against a benign divinity of grace and wisdom. His mass, written on commission, shines with the godliness of music as an artform, transcending words and belief. In contrast, Olivier Messiaen’s fervent and devout Catholicism was one of the pillars of his life and of his musical compositions. In Three Small Liturgies, his beliefs are not just in the musical sounds, but in the poetic and mystical texts that he wrote. F R I D AY

— Friday’s concert offers a full evening of Beethoven, with two well-known Middle Period works — the energetic “Leonore” Overture No. 3 and the ravishingly thrilling dark-to-light Fifth Symphony — sharing the evening with a much later, but equally sensational piece. Played here by full string orchestra, the Grosse Fuge was created in 1825 as the final movement of Beethoven’s last string quartet. Early audiences found it puzzlingly dense, while performers were put off by its challenging writing. Modern musicians (and audiences) have come to admire its contours and fugue, and its ability to showcase the expert artistry it requires. “All-Beethoven” is not too much of one thing — it is a fully diverse offering of monumental portions. —Eric Sellen

Introducing the Concerts



Mass in C major, Opus 86 composed 1807 THE NAME ESTERHÁZY


Ludwig van

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


is well known to the world of music from the family’s association with Haydn, who served four Princes of that name and devoted over forty years of his life to that employment. The last of the series was Prince Nikolaus, who succeeded to the title in 1794 at the age of 28. Like his grandfather Prince Nikolaus “the Magnificent,” the new Prince was devoted to music, but unlike his grandfather his passion was for sacred choral music rather than for the symphonies and operas that Haydn had turned out in profusion. For the nameday of his wife, Princess Maria, which fell on September 8, he regularly commissioned Haydn to compose a Mass. There are thus six great Haydn Masses from the years 1796 to 1802, all written for this celebration. Haydn retired from the Prince’s service in 1804 at the age of 72. He was quite the most celebrated musician in Vienna, held in universal respect. Beethoven, whose relationship with Haydn was never as close as one would expect, considering their proximity in the same city, was already an extremely prominent figure with a reputation for stepping audaciously outside the norms of musical and social convention. It was just at this period that he was composing the great heroic works that we treasure today as the foundation stones of almost all 19th-century symphonic music. In 1807, Prince Nikolaus turned to Beethoven with the commission for a September Mass. Beethoven had not composed a Mass before. In fact, he had written relatively little church or choral music of any kind, but he hated to turn down paid work. He devoted the summer months, when he liked to leave the city for the outlying villages, to this work, but was distracted by a complicated but profitable deal with a London publisher, and by squabbles with his brother that never seemed to get resolved. The only solid information we have about the composition of the Mass is found in a letter to the Prince on July 26 in which Beethoven offered these excuses for the late delivery of his work, enclosing a doctor’s note to certify that he had been ill. The composer concluded: “May I add that I shall hand you the Mass with considerable apprehension, since you, most excellent Prince, are accustomed to having the inimitable masterpieces of the great Haydn performed for you.” About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

In that year, September 8 fell on a Tuesday, so the Mass was performed at the Esterházy hereditary castle at Eisenstadt, 25 miles from Vienna, on Sunday, September 13, instead. Beethoven conducted. It was not the happiest occasion. Beethoven was housed not in the castle itself but in an outlying building, and the Prince made an unfortunate remark that implied that the work was not original, sufficient for the often temperamental composer to feel humiliated and hurt. When the Mass was published, the Prince did not receive the dedication, which would have been normal if all had gone well. Beethoven was certainly treading carefully in Haydn’s footsteps when he composed this Mass. The array of soloists and the division of the text into five main movements follows that precedent. But he was also — inevitably — reaching out into bold forms of expression that leap out of almost every movement. The Mass — again inevitably — hardly matches the immensity of Beethoven’s Missa solemnis, composed more than a decade and a half later, for which no precedent applied. Following tradition, a number of passages in the Mass in C major are set as choral fugues, always with considerable vigor, while the more reflective sections allowed Beethoven to explore that gift for intense expression which he had already displayed in his symphonies and quartets, not to mention the opera Fidelio. The range of expression is wide, with Beethoven more than once giving way to high spirits, as when releasing a speedy opening to the Gloria, or concluding the Credo with a brilliant Amen. Exceptional in its beauty is the Benedictus section of the Sanctus movement, and the closing Agnus Dei has a dramatic solemnity that recalls musical moments written by Gluck or Mozart. Prince Nikolaus lived until 1833, but he never again commissioned so fine a Mass as this. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

At a Glance Beethoven wrote his Mass in C major in 1807 at the request of Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, for the name day of the prince’s wife, Maria. The first performance took place on September 13 at the prince’s country estate of Eisenstadt, with Beethoven conducting the court orchestra. This mass runs about 45 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for an orchestra of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, organ, and strings, plus four vocal soloists and four-part chorus. The Cleveland Orchestra has presented Beethoven’s complete Mass in C major on only one previous set of concerts, in April 1982 at Severance Hall conducted by Colin Davis. In 1997, Leonard Slatkin led a performance of the first two movements as part of that summer’s Blossom Music Festival.

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.

Herbert Lippert Austrian tenor Herbert Lippert is making his Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s performances. As a boy, he was a member of the Vienna Boys Choir. Early recognition of his vocal abilities came from Georg Solti and Wolfgang Sawallisch, with whom he worked on a number of performances and recordings. He portrayed David in Solti’s 1997 Grammy Award-winning recording of Wagner’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg. Throughout his career, Herbert Lippert has appeared in operas, concerts with the Vienna Philharmonic, and operettas with members of the Vienna Philharmonic Ensemble. He is also known for his art song repertoire, recitals with Sawallisch and Maurizio Pollini, and, more recently, with pianist Eduard Kutrowatz. Highlights of Mr. Lippert’s current season include performances with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and Fabio Luisi, as well as with Franz Welser-Möst at the Musikverein, London Proms, and Carnegie Hall. He is singing in works ranging from Beethoven’s Fidelio to Wagner’s The Flying Dutchman with the Vienna State Opera; he has been a soloist in the Vienna State Opera ensemble since 2010.

Ruben Drole Swiss baritone Ruben Drole was born to Spanish-Slovenian parents. He studied voice at the Musikhochschule Zürich with Jane Thorner Mengedoht, and is a prizewinner of the Carl-Heinrich-Ernst, Friedl Wald, and the Pro Europa foundation competitions. After a season with the International Opera Studio Zurich, he has been engaged by Zurich Opera since 2005. In the Zurich cycle of Mozart/Da Ponte operas, he sang in Così fan tutte and The Marriage of Figaro; in the Severance Hall cycle of these Zurich productions, he also appeared in Don Giovanni. He has also appeared as soloist in concert with The Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall and at Vienna’s Musikverein. His other engagements have included performances with Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, a tour of Japan with Nikolaus Harnoncourt and the Concentus Musicus, and appearances at the Salzburg, Spoleto USA, and Styriarte festivals. His 2013-14 season includes performances at the Angers Nantes Opera and Theater an der Wien, and a recital in Ljubljana. Mr. Drole’s artistry can be seen on a number of DVDs, including Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Rossini’s L’ italiana in Algeri, and Schubert’s Fierrabras, all conducted by Franz Welser-Möst.

Grosse Fuge in B-flat major, Opus 133 composed 1825 E V E N BY B E E T H OV E N ’ S S TA N DA R D S ,


Ludwig van

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

Severance Hall 2013-14

the Grosse Fuge is an extraordinary work. On its own, it has a puzzling intensity, and in its original context as the finale of a long, complicated, profound string quartet, it is even more mystifying. That quartet, the Quartet in B-flat major, Opus 130, is a six-movement work that embodies all the richness and complexity of Beethoven’s late years. Its fifth movement is the famous Cavatina, a piece that leaves very few of us anywhere but in a remote heaven of emotion. To follow it, Beethoven originally conceived of an enormous fugue, far surpassing any fugue he had ever written in its many-layered design — and in the tough demands he makes on players and listeners alike. The quartet was written rapidly between July and November 1825, at a time when Beethoven’s obsessively paternal regard for his nephew Karl was leading inexorably to the point of crisis. It was performed a few months later, when the public and Beethoven’s publisher found the finale incomprehensible. The composer was persuaded to detach it from the rest of the work, publish it separately and put another, less ambitious finale in its place. He may have agreed to do so, not so much because the quartet was disfigured or overburdened by it, but because it contains so many facets and contrasts that it makes a remarkably whole and complete work on its own. The fugue theme is drawn from the four notes that featured prominently in the previous Quartet in A minor, Opus 132. The chromatic contour becomes insistently familiar as the fugue proceeds. Several clearly separate sections can be identified when listening. The opening, headed Overtura, is a forceful unison statement of the theme, followed by brief foretastes of sections to come — like a table of contents in a book, or a movie preview. The first main section is furiously loud and emphatic for an almost unendurable length, or so it seems. There is no relief until a complete change of key and character appears (marked Meno mosso e moderato) like a central slow movement. This moves directly into a brisk Allegro molto, much more tuneful and exultant, although it passes through innumerable complex corridors, with much trilling and erupting, before finally exorcising all memories, and closing with youthful gaiety — like a About the Music


return to the distant world of Beethoven’s earliest music. It was Hans von Bülow, a formidable pianist and champion of Beethoven’s music, who first arranged the Grosse Fuge for string orchestra, when he was serving as music director to the Duke of Meiningen from 1880 to 1885, introducing the weight of the double bass section to the original four instrumental parts. He instilled such discipline in his orchestra that he had the entire string section playing the work from memory, standing up! They performed it this way in Berlin soon after and caused a sensation. Many conductors have programmed the work in this form, including Furtwängler, Klemperer, and Toscanini — but allowing the players to use the music, and to sit down. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013 At a Glance

Beethoven composed the Grosse Fuge as the last movement of his String Quartet in B-flat major (Opus 130) in the late summer and early autumn of 1825. It was first performed — with the preceding five movements of that quartet — on March 21, 1826, by the Schuppansigh Quartet of Vienna. The publisher Artaria, however, requested a new finale for Opus 130, one that would be easier to perform. Beethoven wrote a new finale in November 1826; it was the last completed music that he wrote and was not performed until after his death in 1827. The Great Fugue was published separately in May 1827 and bears a dedication to the

Beethoven’s original scoring for string quartet is enlarged and augmented in this weekend’s performances for string orchestra, including doubling of sections of the bass line by double basses. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented the Grosse Fuge in November 1964, conducted by Lukas Foss. The most recent performances were during the 2000-01 season at Severance Hall and on tour in Europe and the United States, conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi.

Trois Petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine [Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence] composed 1943-44 AC RO S S M E S S I A E N ’ S VA S T O U T P U T

of music, a number of features and obsessions are regularly to be found. The primacy of his religious faith is perhaps the most obvious, but his music has extraordinary appeal even for those who have no interest in religion or at least no taste for the elevated mystical realms that he chose to return to again and again. The Trois Petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine [Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence], thrusts his faith firmly forward in three poems that are, as the composer himself admitted, surreal rather than orthodox in their imagery and language — and tinged with echoes of the Bible and the writings of St. Thomas Aquinas, which Messiaen had absorbed since childhood. Their purpose was not as part of church ritual, which a liturgy implies, but to “transport a sort of office, a sort of organized praise into the concert hall,” in the composer’s words. Praise is the unmistakable tone of the women’s chorus entrusted with these three modern psalms. Unusually, the singers (there are two versions of the score, calling for either 36 voices or 18 voices) are required to sing in unison almost throughout, resolving into pure triadic harmony only at the end of main sections of the movements. For much of the third Liturgy, they are called upon to speak their lines at least at a level that will enable them to be heard over the orchestra, which, while actually not large, is capable of brilliance and density thanks to its unusual make-up. In this instrumental ensemble, there are strings, but no wind instruments. The most prominent sounds come from the solo piano and three ethereal-sounding instruments — celesta, vibraphone, and ondes martenot. This last instrument was invented in the 1920s by a French engineer whose electronic method for managing pitch and sonority produced an instrument that can sound like a celestial soprano (angelic voices perhaps) with an enormous range. In addition, there are two unpitched percussion: a pair of maracas (far from their Latin American origins) and a tam-tam (gong). Messiaen’s other signature concerns — birdsong, vivid colors, and asymmetric rhythms — all have their place in this work, but none with the emphasis that he places on the intensity About the Music


Strange Sounds: Ondes Martenot On April 20, 1928, the French musician and inventor Maurice Martenot unveiled his new electronic instrument at the Paris Opera. The ondes martenot (“ondes” is the French word for “waves”), as it came to be known, was quickly recognized as an important advance over other electronic instruments of the time, particularly the theremin (popular in the scores for horror films), which essentially played only a single kind of sound. The ondes martenot is played in two ways, either using a seven-octave keyboard, or au ruban, meaning that it is played sliding a metal ring along a metallic ribbon. The first method is similar to playing the piano, except that quarter-tones and wide vibrato are both possible. The ribbon method produces a continuous glissando — a wailing sound of penetrating potential, of varying sound colors and sliding pitch. Messiaen remains the most prominent composer to have used the ondes martenot extensively in his music.

of his belief in the Divine Presence. The musical structures are relatively simple, for there is much repetition, and the chorus repeats a number of phrases that linger readily in the mind. The first Liturgy, for example, has a beautiful prefatory invocation “Mon Jésus,” then a series of four stanzas, before returning to the opening in a full da capo (literally “from the head” or starting again at the beginning). The second Liturgy is more lively with a catchy recurrent refrain “Il est parti.” After a huge climax and a long silence, the refrain takes on a broad chordal character supported by strings and ondes martenot alone, before a loud joyous ending “Pour nous!” The third Liturgy also includes an extensive repeat, and an elegant phrase for “Posez-vous comme un sceau sur mon cœur” (“Place yourself, like a seal, on my heart”) acts as a marker at intervals. Trois Liturgies was written during World War II. Messiaen was held prisoner in Germany for a while, but once released he entered into an immensely productive period in which his mature style took permanent shape. He wrote his dense and difficult piano parts for one of his students, Yvonne Loriod, who eventually became his second wife and who appeared in most of the early performances of this work. The first performance of Trois Liturgies in 1945, just before the end of the war, baffled many of the critics, who found the text incomprehensible, the religious intensity oppressive, and the musical style a disconcerting mixture of mayhem and saccharine sweetness. But Messiaen was above such complaints, being always completely comfortable with his own style and with his busy, productive life, passed in a kind of “hectic joy,” as he called it, divided between teaching, composing, and organplaying — and firmly dedicated to a higher existence. Over all the music lingers an aura of “exotic sensuality” (Paul Griffiths’s description) and a burning conviction that his music was part of the divine order of things. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

About the Music

At a Glance Messiaen composed his Trois Petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine (“Three Small Liturgies of the Divine Presence”) between November 1943 and March 1944, to his own texts. The first performance took place in Paris on April 21, 1945; Roger Désormiere conducted the Chorale Yvonne Gouverné and the Orchestre de la Société des Concerts du Conservatoire. The piano soloist was Yvonne Loriod; the ondes martenot was played by Ginette Martenot (sister of the instrument’s inventor). This work in three movements runs about 35 minutes in performance. Following the premiere, Messiaen chose to offer two versions of the performing score, one calling for 32 string players and 36 women’s voices, the other for 16 string players and 18 women’s voices, plus, in each version, celesta, percussion (vibraphone, maracas, Chinese cymbals, tam-tam), and the solo piano and solo ondes martenot. Franz Welser-Möst has chosen to use the scoring for larger forces for this weekend’s performances. The Cleveland Orchestra has presented this work on only one previous occasion, for a weekend of concerts at Severance Hall in November 2002, conducted by George Benjamin, with Joela Jones and Cynthia Millar as the soloists.

Mais la robe lavée dans le sang de l’Agneau, mais la pierre de neige avec un nom nouveau, les éventails, la cloche et l’ordre des claretés, et l’échelle en arc-en-ciel de la Vérité, mais la porte qui parle et le soleil qui s’ouvre, l’auréole tête de rechange qui délivre, et l’encre d’or ineffaceable sur le livre; mais le face à face et l’Amour.

But the robe washed in the blood of the Lamb, but the snow-white stone with a new name, the cooling fans, the bells of time, the order of light, and the rainbow-ladder of Truth, But the door that speaks and the sun that opens, the difference of a haloed face who redeems, and the golden ink, indelible on the book; but to see you face to face, and love.

Vous qui parlez en nous, vous qui vous taisez en nous, et gardez le silence dans votre Amour, vous êtes près, vous êtes loin, vous êtes près, vous êtes loin, vous êtes la lumière et les ténèbres, vous êtes si complique et simple, vous êtes infiniment simple. L’arc-en-ciel de l’Amour, c’est vous, l’unique oiseau de l’Éternité, c’est vous! Elles s’alignent lentement, les cloches de la profondeur. Posez-vous comme un sceau sur mon coeur.

You who speak within us, you who stay silently within us, and maintain your silence in your Love, you are close, you are far away, you are near, you are distant, you are the light and the darkness, you are so complex and simple, you are infinitely simple. The rainbow of love, it is you! The single bird of eternity, that is you! They align themselves slowly, the bells sounding time’s eternal depth. Place yourself, like a seal, on my heart.

Tout entier, en tous lieux, . . . etc.

All encompassing in all places, . . . etc.

Vous qui parlez en nous, vous qui vous taisez en nous, et gardez le silence dans votre Amour, enfoncez votre image dans la durée de mes jours.

“Leonore” Overture No. 3, Opus 72b composed 1806 BE E THOVE N’S OPE RA


Ludwig van

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

Severance Hall 2013-14

Fidelio brought him endless trouble and frustration, yet he loved the work dearly and attached great importance to its music and its message. Most composers of the time wrote operas in profusion and rarely wrestled with alternative versions. But Beethoven wrote only one, and he produced at least three versions of the opera and four versions of its overture. Even the opera’s title was changed, having been Leonore in its first two forms and Fidelio in the end. To add to the confusion, the three Leonore overtures are incorrectly numbered, misnumbered when they were published, but not, as it turns out, in the order in which they were written. No. 2 was the first Beethoven wrote, No. 3 the second, and No. 1 the third, all to some extent sharing musical material. The Fidelio Overture itself, quite different from the others, came last. (The exact dating and sequence of composition was finally determined by chemical analysis in the 20th century of the differing papers on which they’d been written.) By common consent, No. 3 is the finest as a self-supporting concert work, although in the theater it is usually felt to dwarf the opening act musically and pre-empt the final act dramatically. No doubt Beethoven felt the same, for his replacement for it, No. 1, is shorter and much milder in tone. And the eventual final replacement, the Fidelio Overture, makes no reference to the opera’s music and serves simply as a curtain-raiser. In composing No. 3 in 1806 in anticipation of a revival of the opera in Vienna, Beethoven was flexing his symphonic muscles, building on themes that had served in the original overture in 1805, and expanding their reach and impact. The resulting overture became a match for any of the mighty symphonic movements that he composed in that same decade. Like the first movements of the fourth and seventh symphonies, this overture has a slow introduction and a main Allegro section that follows. In the slow section, Florestan’s aria from Act II of the opera, when he lies in a dark subterranean dungeon in mortal despair, is briefly given out by clarinets and bassoons before the music winds itself up for the transition to the Allegro. In this restless, dynamic movement three passages stand out. These include the second main theme in the bright key of E major, which is another version of Florestan’s aria sung by the About the Music


At a Glance Beethoven composed his “Leonore” Overture No. 3 in 1806 for the revival of his opera, Fidelio, which took place at Vienna’s Theateran-der-Wien on March 29 of that year. The first known performance of this overture in the United States was given on December 7, 1850, at the Tremont Temple in Boston by the Musical Fund Society under George J. Webb’s direction. This overture runs about 15 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Beethoven’s Third “Leonore” Overture during the ensemble’s inaugural season in 19181919, with founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff, in a concert at Woodland Avenue Presbyterian Church. The Orchestra’s most recent performances were in January 2010 led by Franz Welser-Möst. (Among the Orchestra’s many performances of “Leonore” No. 3 over the years was a rain-soaked rendition in November 1929 during groundbreaking ceremonies for Severance Hall.)


flute over the violins. Then, in the middle of the action, everything stands still as a trumpet call is heard from the distance. This is the signal, in the opera, for the arrival of the Minister who will intervene in time to stop Florestan’s murder at the hand of the evil prison governor. The trumpet call is heard a second time, confirming the prisoner’s rescue and the joy of, above all, his wife Leonore, who has contrived to get into the dungeon disguised as a young man named Fidelio. The third unforgettable moment in this thrilling overture is the rush of the violins, like thoroughbreds out of the starting gate, then gathering in the other strings in a headlong rush to the coda, a celebration of triumph as brazen and positive as anything Beethoven ever wrote. For him, it was ultimate affirmation of constancy, liberty, and human courage. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

THEATER AN DER WIEN: This concert hall in Vienna, built in 1801, is where Beethoven's opera Fidelio was first presented — and where Beethoven lived for a time. Beethoven's Fifth and Sixth symphonies also received their premieres here.

Symphony No. 5 in C minor, Opus 67 composed 1804-08 EVERY LISTENER

may feel free to interpret this immortal work in his or her own fashion. The idea that it represents the composer’s mighty but victorious struggle with destiny was put into circulation by Beethoven himself, or at least by his fantasy-spinning amanuensis Anton Schindler, who reported the composer’s explanation of the opening motif as “So pocht das Schicksal an die Pforte” (‘Thus Fate knocks at the door’). Perhaps Beethoven did say that, and it certainly offers a vivid image for an extraordinarily unconventional opening for a classical symphony. But there are so many other forces at work in this symphony, besides that of fate, that we need to open our ears and minds to every signal it sends out. Most listeners agree that the signals can be different at each hearing. Fate struck Beethoven most cruelly in about 1802 when, still in his early thirties, he acknowledged the fact of his deafness and began the long process of coming to terms with a handicap that was less of a musical disability (it did not interfere with his ability to compose) than a social one. His standing as a virtuoso pianist with excellent connections at court was seriously threatened, and his relations with friends, and especially with women, were now forever circumscribed. We might think that as a composer his reactions were far more violent than the situation warranted. The “Eroica” Symphony (No. 3), the immediate product of that profound crisis, transformed the world of classical music forever. But he did not stop there. The superhuman creative energy that produced his great heroic works of that decade had never been heard in music before. One colossal path-breaking work followed another, combining unearthly beauty of invention, technical virtuosity, vastness of conception, and a radical freedom of expression and form. Beethoven may have — privately — felt inordinately sorry for himself, but there is no self-pity in the music. Defiance, yes certainly, although the sense of triumph expressed in the conclusion of the Fifth Symphony is surely more than a tongue-sticking-out I-told-you-so addressed to fate. Beethoven’s triumph gloats not just over an unfair destiny cowering at his feet, but rather over all humanity, over all of us who have the misfortune not to measure up to his infinite creative spirit. If Beethoven gave up the unequal struggle to take care of About the Music


At a Glance Beethoven began sketching this symphony as early as 1804, and completed it during the first months of 1808. The first performance took place on December 22, 1808, at the Theater-an-der-Wien in Vienna, at a legendary marathon concert led by the composer and devoted entirely to his works (the program also included the premiere of the Sixth Symphony, Fourth Piano Concerto, and Choral Fantasy — all in an unheated hall, and seriously under-rehearsed). This symphony runs about 35 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, and strings. The piccolo, contrabassoon, and trombones (which Beethoven had not used in his first four symphonies) play only in the fourth movement. The Cleveland Orchestra first played Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony during its inaugural season, in April 1919. It has been performed frequently ever since — most recently conducted by Franz WelserMöst at Severance Hall in autumn 2009 and at Blossom in 2012 led by Jahja Ling.


worldly and domestic concerns, if he lost control of his finances, if he quarreled with landlords and servants, if he felt robbed by publishers and creditors, if he lived in squalor, if he could not count on the affection and loyalty of friends, there always remained one domain in which he was the unchallenged master: music itself. He could change the world by scratching barely legible lines and dots on ruled paper, the physical manifestation of a cauldron of sound and pride that boiled in his brain. The famous four-note motif that opens the symphony is heard constantly in the first movement, but it is far from being the all-pervading idea that many people suppose. Listen out for others! The second movement deft ly and curiously blends gorgeous cantilena with military trumpets, all wrapped in variation form. The third movement is full of mystery; not defiant, not triumphant, more humorous or spectral, and out of it grows the huge shout of triumph of the fourth-movement finale, as the trombones proclaim a new order of the universe, supported by piccolo, contrabassoon, and the full weight of C major, the key that Haydn had assigned to the completion of Creation itself. The disorder and confusion that reigned at the first performance of this symphony in a famously long concert — which also included the first performances of the Fourth Piano Concerto, the Sixth Symphony, and the Choral Fantasia — perfectly illustrates the sorry mis-match between reality in Beethoven’s life, when a long, difficult concert had to be rehearsed and performed, and the sublime quality of the music itself. No wonder Viennese audiences were confused by this giant in their midst. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

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. W “A great orchestra, a Bruckner expert. . . . Five out of five stars,” declared Austria’s Kurier o 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 themiraculou atre or on record. . . . I doubt this music can be better played than by the Clevelanders, the most ‘European’ of the American orchestras, with wind and brass soloists to die for and a string sound of superlative warmth and sensitivity.” Other recordings released in recent years include two under the baton of Pierre Boulez and a third album of Mozart piano concertos with Mitsuko Uchida, whose first Cleveland Orchestra Mozart album won a Grammy Award in 2011. Visit the Cleveland Orchestra Store for the latest and best Cleveland Orchestra recordings and DVDs.

11001 Euclid Avenue Cleveland, Ohio 44106



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



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