Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director December 2013 Acclaim for Franz and the Orchestra on tour Our fabulous Orchestra recently completed an eight-city concert tour that began November 4 in New York and finished on November 22 in Vienna. In four of the cities, the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus added their wonderful voices to the ensemble. In my twentyfive years of hearing our concerts all over the world, these thirteen concerts in November reached the highest artistic heights in memory. The concerts centered on the “Fate and Freedom” festival we presented at Severance Hall in October. And the performances were transcendent, the result of the collective artistic commitment of Franz together with each and every performer on stage. Audiences everywhere were wildly enthusiastic, press reviews were uniformly laudatory, and, most importantly, every venue where we played issued an open invitation for multiple return engagements, far more than we have time in the schedule to fulfill. I hope you saw the extensive coverage provided by The Plain Dealer and WKSU; some excerpts of reviews are included in this program book. An artistic triumph of this magnitude is exciting for all involved and it brings extraordinary international attention to Northeast Ohio. Nevertheless, our ambassadorial role in Europe’s great music halls is no match for our commitment to performing year-round here at home for the community that created and has sustained the Orchestra for almost a century, and which we serve with great pride and humble dedication. Thank you for your support During this season of celebration and giving thanks, I want to convey our thanks to you on behalf of the entire Cleveland Orchestra family. Franz Welser-Möst and the members of the Orchestra are very grateful to everyone who experiences the joy of our music-making here at home in Northeast Ohio:  From loyal subscribers who wouldn’t miss a concert to new listeners, dazzled by the beauty of this Concert Hall. From couples on dates, socializing after a KeyBank Fridays@7 concert, to families on the Lawn at a Blossom concert, or joined here together for the holidays.  From elementary school children who arrive at Severance Hall in yellow buses, to the growing audience of young people attending evening concerts through generously funded access programs. In a very real way, each and every day, we are most thankful for our many supporters: Foundations, who provide funding for innovation.  Corporations, who sponsor our concert presentations.  Individuals, who donate to The Cleveland Orchestra at a rate higher than at any other major orchestra in the country.   We rely on you and your generosity to keep our organization moving forward at the very highest levels of excellence and service.  As you reflect on what you are grateful for in your own life, I hope you will recall the special memories you associate with The Cleveland Orchestra, Severance Hall, and Blossom, and that you will honor those lasting memories with a year-end gift to the Orchestra.   We greatly appreciate all that you do.

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

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.

2013 European Festivals Tour draws praise for Welser-Möst, Cleveland Orchestra, and Chorus The following are excerpted from press commentary about the Orchestra’s pererformances during its European Tour and Vienna Residency, November 8-22: “The handshakes from Franz Welser-Möst said it all. In acknowledging the principals of the Cleveland Orchestra Friday night at Vienna’s Musikverein, the music director did what most in attendance probably wished they could do themselves: personally thank the group for three superb performances in a row. Not once in their concerts Wednesday through Friday was it apparent that the group had been traveling abroad nearly three weeks. No, here at the end of their 2013 European Tour, the artists played with new focus and energy, and made sure Vienna enjoyed the fruits of their long musical labor. The main thing apparent, frankly, was that the orchestra had been playing Beethoven and Shostakovich nonstop for weeks, and knew their six scores inside and out. Here as nowhere else, the artists transcended the numerous pages on their stands, and simply took advantage of the Musikverein’s legendary acoustics. No less clear was that the audience recognized expertise, and liked what it heard. . . . The response each night was hugely enthusiastic, giving Welser-Möst cause to repeatedly acknowledge individual players and the ensemble as a whole. On Friday, he even went so far as to jog into the bass section.” —The Plain Dealer, November 23, 2013

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

“Franz Welser-Möst’s interpretations are anything but sober, yet clear in their formal articulation. It is not the conceited omniscience of someone who pretends to understand the world.  His concerts reveal an earth-bound assurance, free from spectacle, affectation, and sentimentality.  He reads the score and interprets what’s there.  Self-denial in favor of the message of the artwork — this penchant for directness is beneficial, even if it is certainly not always successful. Franz WelserMöst has long been able to concentrate on works that really suit him, working on pieces he likes to say are ‘close to his heart’.” —Concerti, November 2013

THE CLEVELAND ORC

“The second evening of their visit to Frankfurt started luxuriously: The Cleveland Orchestra’s own chorus performed Beethoven’s Mass in C major at the Alte Oper, joined of course by the orchestra itself from Northeast Ohio, which was the focus of two concerts in the city.  The Cleveland Orchestra . . . juxtaposed works by Beethoven with the Sixth and Tenth Symphonies by Dmitri Shostakovich. The symbiosis between the orchestra and the chorus was unsurpassable.  Under Austrian conductor Franz Welser-Möst, who has been music director in the city on Lake Erie since 2002, Beethoven’s lyrical, literal setting of the Latin Mass came across lean, subtle, and transparent, despite all the opulence in the performing forces.  The balance between singers and instrumentalists was perfect in the soft and mild passages.” —Allgemeine Zeitung, November 12, 2013

Orchestra’s recording of Bruckner 4th receives praise and awards

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” designation, lauding the perfordes mance and the presentation. ma The performance was filmed in 2012 at the beautiful 17th-centtury 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.

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 for some series are available online.

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Overture& Concerto T H E E X C E P T I O N A L LY G I F T E D

Mendelssohn knew all of Beethoven’s music inside out, and, being a superb pianist, he played the piano concertos on many occasions. Perhaps more significant for Mendelssohn’s own music was his adoption of the overture as a vehicle of poetic expression. In the two dramatic overtures Egmont and Coriolan, Beethoven showed how a free-standing orchestral piece could convey the essence of a drama or a poetic idea without recourse to words. Mendelssohn’s Overture to A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which he wrote when he was sixteen, and the overture The Hebrides, composed when he was twenty, both pay tribute to that heritage and laid the foundation for innumerable pictorial overtures and symphonic poems to come — whether by Liszt, Tchaikovsky, or Richard Strauss. If Beethoven stands at the head of the 19th-century symphony and concerto, Mendelssohn is the presiding spirit over the passion for program music that his contemporaries and Mendelssohn and Beethoven successors exploited to the full. With this weekend’s program, we can enjoy both — Beethoven’s mastery of form and melody in two “early” concertos, preceded by Mendelssohn’s wonderfully wave-slapping overture depicting Scottish islands in all their calm and fury. —Hugh Macdonald

against George II was put down at the Battle of Culloden in 1746, a number of English soldiers were heard to remark that it was no surprise the highlanders were such barbarians, wearing such strange clothes and having to live in such a hideous mountain landscape, a part of the known world which God had evidently failed to polish at the Creation. By the time Mendelssohn came of age, these attitudes had been completely reversed. Mountains were now beautiful — mysterious still, but full of poetry and music. When he toured Scotland with his friend Karl Klingemann in August 1829, the 20-year-old composer was open to exactly the impressions that Romantic poets and artists were anxious to find. From the port of Oban on the west coast, where Mendelssohn sketched a view of the distant islands, they took a boat to the island of Mull. That night, from his lodgings in the fishing village of Tobermory, he wrote home to his family in Berlin: “In order to show you how extraordinarily affected I am by the Hebrides [the name for the islands in those parts], the following came into my head there.” He attached a sketch of twenty-one bars of music, which closely match the opening of the Hebrides overture as we now know it, even though the work had many transformations yet to undergo. The suggestive phrase at the opening, and the rolling arpeggios that follow, are perfect evocations of the inspiration of the moment — crossing the water with a rugged, wild landscape all around. The main work on the overture was actually done in Venice and Rome in 1830, when Mendelssohn was taking an Italian tour to complement the Scottish one. But it was revised many times before the composer (who was forever nervous about declaring a work to be finished) felt it was ready to be performed, in London in 1832 — and many times more before it was ready to be published. The printed score bore the title Fingal’s Cave, the almost inaccessible grotto on the island of Staffa that Mendelssohn and Klingemann had visited after Mull. Mendelssohn said nothing about that part of the trip, perhaps because he was horribly seasick (as many tourists in those waters still are today), and it is likely that the choice of title was not his. At all events, we About the Music

A 19th-century illustration of Mendelssohn as a child conducting family members in a musical evening. Mendelssohn’s childhood was comfortable financially, and his family encouraged him to discover interest across all the arts.

Mendelssohn the Wunderkind Felix Mendelssohn’s father was a banker, Abraham Mendelssohn. His grandfather was a well-known German-Jewish philosopher, Moses Mendelssohn. Felix grew up in an atmosphere of intense intellectual and artistic curiosity. The family’s comfortable financial circumstances allowed the boy and his siblings to study, explore, and learn. Music was a favored interest, and everyone was encouraged to learn an instrument (or two). Together, they played through many pieces of chamber music and, occasionally, even larger-ensemble works. His older sister, Fanny, was well-known as a pianist from an early age. Felix, however, soon caught up — and would eventually be recognized as one of Europe’s best keyboard artists (on both piano and organ). He had begun studying piano at age six, was tutored the next year in Paris, and was soon trumpeted as “a new Mozart.” Unlike that prodigy of a generation before, however, Mendelssohn’s family did not exploit their son as a potential money-making star. Instead, they encouraged him to learn more about all aspects of music, including composition. By the time he was 17 years old, he had written (and heard performed by his own family) several masterful works — including his Overture to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and the String Octet in E-flat major.

are now accustomed to the original title, The Hebrides. Whether or not a storm blew up while they were at sea, Mendelssohn included the suggestion of rough weather in his overture, both before the return to the main theme and at the end — although he saved his most graphic representation of a storm for the “Scottish” Symphony (published as No. 3), inspired by the same 1829 tour. But perhaps the strongest impression the overture leaves is of supreme placidity and calm. This is evoked by the beautiful second subject, first heard on the bassoons and cellos, and unforgettably moving when it returns towards the end as a solo for the clarinet. The country that inspired this could never again be viewed as the home of barbarians. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013

About the Music

At a Glance Mendelssohn first began sketching what eventually became this overture in the summer of 1829. The work went through a number of revisions under several different titles: Ouvertüre zur einsamen Insel (“The Lonely Island,” 1830), Die Hebriden (1830), Overture to the Isles of Fingal (1832), Ossian in Fingalshöhle (“Ossian in Fingal’s Cave”), and Die Fingals-Höhle (1835). The work was first performed in London on May 14, 1832, under the direction of Thomas Attwood. This overture runs about 10 minutes in performance. Mendelssohn scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed The Hebrides Overture in November 1921 under founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been performed regularly since that time, most recently at Severance Hall concerts in April 2011 under Kurt Masur’s direction, and more recently as part of the Orchestra’s inaugural “At Home” neighborhood residency community concert at Saint Colman’s Catholic Church in May 2013.

Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Opus 19 composed 1790-1801 T H E FAM I LIAR N U M B E RI N G

of Beethoven’s five piano concertos is misleading in that both the number and the numbering are wrong. There are seven in all, of which the present concerto, No. 2, is indeed the second, while the famous No. 1, in C major, is actually the third. Beethoven first cut his concerto teeth on a work in E-flat major when he was thirteen, although no one would claim that it makes any prophetic proclamation of the mature composer, let alone of the “Emperor” Concerto (No. 5) or any of the other great works in E-flat. The concerto in B-flat major, ultimately published as No. 2, was probably begun in Bonn, while the composer was in his late teens, although it was not completed until 1795, following the curiously silent spell when Beethoven seems to have been overawed by his teacher Haydn. It emerged at much the same time as the astonishing group of works that bear his lowest opus numbers — the three piano trios, Op. 1, and the three piano sonatas, Op. 2. In the Burgtheater on March 29, 1795, having already made a certain name for himself in the private salons of the Vienna aristocracy, Beethoven made his first public appearance as a virtuoso. A doctor friend from his Bonn days, Franz Wegeler, tells a vivid tale of how the concerto was finished: “Not until the afternoon of the second day before the concert did he write the Rondo, and then while suffering from a pretty severe colic, which frequently afflicted him. . . . In the anteroom sat four copyists to whom he handed sheet after sheet as soon as it was finished. At the rehearsal, which took place the next day in Beethoven’s room, the pianoforte was found to be a half step lower than the wind instruments. Without a moment’s delay Beethoven played his part a half step higher.” Presumably no such expedient was required at the concert itself. The work was revised for a concert in Prague in 1798 (by which time “No. 1” had been composed) and it was published in Leipzig in 1801 (by which time “No. 3” had been composed). Conscious of tremendous advances in his music, Beethoven was able to dismiss the B-flat concerto, No. 2, in a letter to his publisher, as “not one of my best concertos.” He even sold it for half the price he asked for adjacent works, such as the Septet Op. 20, the First Symphony, and the B-flat major Piano Sonata Op. 22. Beethoven’s evaluation may seem reasonable for the first About the Music

movement, but scarcely so for the other two. There is a certain squareness and predictability in the first movement, which would be no criticism in a work by any other hand. The first four bars, for example, are exactly balanced by the second four, and the contrasts of rhythm and character, and of wind and strings, are also in exact equilibrium. Something of Beethoven’s more personal manner comes with the heavy unison C’s, fortissimo, followed by three D-flats, pianissimo, a dramatic incident that rouses the music from any suspicion of graceful ease. Once the solo piano has entered, the music blossoms in new, livelier directions, with a suave second subject and a surge of sixteenth notes as the exposition approaches its close. The cadenza is by Beethoven himself. The slow movement breaks new ground in both feeling and form. One expects a flow of sustained melody from a Beethoven Adagio, but here the theme is never fully stated, despite its frequent recurrence; the first six notes take a variety of different directions. At the opening, for example, the melody is very quickly interrupted by dramatic orchestral intrusions. The piano offers a statement, then quickly proceeds to elaborate it. A development takes it through darker keys, then a reprise gives it to the oboe above piano arpeggios, the theme always subtly different, always calmly unfolding. The most moving passage comes at the end where a long coda gives place not to a cadenza but to a series of melodic fragments, unsupported by harmony, offered like hesitant speech and ending on a half-close, agonizingly incomplete. The orchestra has to supply the final chords. The rousing third movement rondo makes play of spiky cross-rhythms in its main theme, although the soloist’s main concern is with trills, grace notes, wide leaps, cascading sixteenths, and the whole virtuoso kitbag. A middle episode gives the spiky rhythm a new, lumbering character, like a folk dance. Towards the end there are two touches of humor, neither quite like Haydn’s well-known type of symphonic joking. One is the ironing out of the spiky rhythm by the soloist in the coda in a surprising key, with the key and the rhythm immediately corrected by the whole orchestra. The other is the series of sweet nothings that prolong the close long after the musical argument has ended. Seven piano concertos? After No. 4 (which was really the fifth), Beethoven published an arrangement of his sublime violin concerto as a piano concerto, thus “No. 6” — with No. 5 as the seventh. —Hugh Macdonald © 2013 Severance Hall 2013-14

About the Music

At a Glance Beethoven began work on his B-flat major concerto in Bonn prior to his move to Vienna in 1792. He probably played it in public for the first time at his “musical academy” on March 29, 1795. He continued to make revisions until its publication in 1801 as Concerto No. 2. At that time, the concerto was dedicated to an Austrian nobleman named Carl Nicklas von Nickelsberg. Beethoven wrote out an extended solo cadenza for the first movement in 1809. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, strings, and the solo piano. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto in April 1954, with George Szell conducting and Leon Fleisher as soloist. It has been performed regularly since that time, most recently in April 2011, when Kurt Masur led performances at Severance Hall with soloist David Fray.

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Opus 37 composed 1800-03 BE E THOVE N’S

by

Ludwig van

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

Severance Hall 2013-14

early fame rested more on his piano playing than on his compositions. Having arrived in Vienna in 1792, he caught the attention of the public and, more importantly of the nobility, by displaying his formidable powers in private salons and later in public halls. By composing piano concertos for himself to play, he achieved the double objective of attracting attention as player and as composer. The three concertos numbered 1, 2, and 3 all belong to this phase of his life, before deafness began to threaten his career as a pianist and his ability to communicate with his fellow-beings. The Concerto No. 3 was begun in 1800, at about the same time as the Second Symphony and the six string quartets of Opus 18, and although it reveals some of Beethoven’s latent force, it is essentially part of his brilliant first phase as a composer, when melodiousness and high craftsmanship were his chief claims to pre-eminence. The key of C minor nevertheless foreshadows the stormy world of the Fifth Symphony, the Thirty-Two Variations for piano, and a number of other pieces. The opening theme of the concerto’s first movement is formulaic and baldly stated without accompaniment; most striking is the drum-tap figure that pervades the movement and eventually reaches the drums themselves, as Beethoven surely destined it. The movement’s second subject, in contrast, is one of Beethoven’s warmest melodies, especially radiant later on when it returns in C major. A surprise occurs at the end when, after the solo cadenza, the soloist does not sit back contented, as had always been the normal practice, but continues in dialog with the drums and then accompanies the full orchestra in its closing gestures. After the dark C minor of the first movement, the remote chord of E major that opens the slow middle movement has an ethereal effect. Beethoven means to transport his listeners to another world and, in a few bars of concentrated melody, he does so. Once the orchestra has replied in its own way to the piano’s opening theme, the piano part is allowed to blossom gloriously in runs, arpeggios, and cascades, which never disturb the stately pace of the movement. A cadenza and a pair of horns allow the movement to About the Music

settle into a calm close, except that . . . a shocking, loud chord confirms the key of E major and simultaneously sets the return to C minor for the concluding lively rondo third movement in painful relief. Each return of the theme is effected by a surging scale, which accentuates the melody’s awkward intervals and compulsive rhythm. The clarinet’s contrasting theme is a generous reminder that Beethoven had not yet left the divine melodiousness of his youth behind. The final section abandons both the 2/4 rhythm and the minor key, and gives us a conventional happy ending in a bouncy 6/8, as if that had been the objective of this dark-hued work all along. Beethoven was always the great dissembler. —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 It was long thought that Beethoven had written this concerto in 1799 or 1800, with sketches dating to as early as 1797. More recent research suggests that, although some phrases may have been sketched earlier, he began writing the concerto in earnest in 1802 and completed it early in 1803. It was first performed on April 5, 1803, at the Theater-an-der-Wien in Vienna, with the composer as soloist. The concerto was published the following year with a dedication to Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia. The first performance in the United States took place on December 8, 1842,

52

in Boston’s Tremont Temple, with George J. Webb conducting the Musical Fund Society and J. L. Hatton as pianist. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Beethoven scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto in January 1923 at subscription concerts led by Nikolai Sokoloff, with Mischa Levitzki as soloist. The most recent performances were given at Severance

Hall in May 2013 by Lars Vogt, conducted by Manfred Honeck. The concerto was last heard at Blossom as part of the 2011 Festival, with pianist Jon Kimura Parker in a performance conducted by David Afkham. The Cleveland Orchestra has recorded all five of Beethoven’s Piano Concertos three times: between 1959 and 1961 with George Szell and Leon Fleisher, in 1968 with Szell and Emil Gilels, and between 1986 and 1987 with Vladimir Ashkenazy as both conductor and pianist.

Leon Fleisher American pianist and conductor Leon Fleisher is serving as The Cleveland Orchestra’s artist-in-residence this season. This position is made possible by the Malcolm E. Kenney Artist-in-Residence Fund, created through a generous endowment gift to The Cleveland Orchestra. Mr. Fleisher has performed with the Orchestra in more than 70 concerts, beginning in October 1946. He first conducted the Orchestra in 1978 in Lakewood; this weekend marks his Severance Hall conducting debut.   Leon Fleisher’s career as soloist, conductor, recitalist, chamber music artist, and masterclass mentor has spanned across the decades of his life. Born in 1928, he began playing piano at age four and gave his first recital at age eight. He was the youngest-ever student of Artur Schnabel, whose own former teachers can be traced to Beethoven. Leon Fleisher made his public debut in 1944 with the New York Philharmonic.   In 1952, Mr. Fleisher was the first American to win the Queen Elisabeth Competition. He went on to perform with every major orchestra and made a series of acclaimed recordings with George Szell and The Cleveland Orchestra. At the height of his success in 1965, he suffered focal dystonia, which rendered two fingers on his right hand immobile. Mr. Fleisher then turned to repertoire for the left hand and conducting. Eventually, treatments using Rolfing and botulinum toxin injections restored his hand’s mobility. Leon Fleisher’s professional renaissance has been documented in films, recordings, and a memoir, My Nine Lives: A Memoir of Many Careers in Music. Highlights of Mr. Fleisher’s 2013-14 season include appearances as soloist with the orchestras of Boston and Chicago and the New York String Orchestra, and as conductor-soloist with the Naples Philharmonic in Florida, leading a world premiere with three of his children and a daughter-in-law as harp soloists. In 2008, Sony re-issued Leon Fleisher’s extensive discography on CD and as digital downloads. Since 2004, he has also recorded for Bridge Records, Deutsche Grammophon, Ondine, and Vanguard. This past summer, Sony issued a 23-CD set that includes his Szell/Cleveland performances, which remain a greatly praised documentation of their collaborations.   Honorary doctorates and the Johns Hopkins University President’s Medal are among Mr. Fleisher’s many honors. He is also is a Commander in the French Order of Arts and Letters, 2007 Kennedy Center Honoree, Musical America’s 1994 Instrumentalist of the Year, and the Royal Philharmonic Society’s 2013 Instrumentalist of the Year. He lives in Baltimore with his wife, pianist Katherine Jacobson Fleisher. Severance Hall 2013-14

Student attendance continues to grow at Severance Hall As The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 season has gotten underway, more Student Advantage 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 opportunities 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 success. The program is continuing to grow, with the number of Frequent Fan Card holders 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 classical 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 success 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 lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestra’s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severance’s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

The Cleveland Orchestra Center for Future Audiences T H E C L E V E L A N D O R C H E S T R A ’s Center for Future Audiences was estab-

lished to fund programs to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio. The Center was created in 2010 with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation. Centerfunded programs focus on addressing economic and geographic barriers to attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center. Programs include research, introductory offers, targeted discounts, student ticket programs, and integrated use of new technologies. The goal is to create one of the youngest audiences of any symphony orchestra in the country. For additional information about these plans and programs, call us at 216-231-7464.

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.

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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Franz Welser-Möst, conductor Julia Fischer, violin

Franz Welser-Möst begins the new year with a special weekend of Brahms symphonies, overtures, and the Violin Concerto with guest soloist Julia Fischer. Two different programs (Thursday and Friday, Saturday and Sunday) present Brahms’s Second and Fouth Symphonies paired with either his Tragic or Academic Festival Overture. Plus the beauty of one of the greatest concertos ever written — expansive, melodious, bright-eyed, and magnificent.

Mitsuko Uchida’s interpretations of Mozart are renowned for their intelligence, elegance, and sensitivity. She continues her acclaimed collaboration with The Cleveland Orchestra, which was recognized with a 2010 Grammy Award, with performances of two more of Mozart’s piano concertos (Nos. 18 and 19). “Mitsuko Uchida’s Mozart playing is stunningly sensitive, crystalline, and true.” —Boston Globe Sponsor: Quality Electrodynamics (QED)New!
