Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director February 2014 This month, we salute conductor Pierre Boulez for his half-century of service to The Cleveland Orchestra. It is with great pleasure that we look back on his five decades with this institution, to his contributions toward this Orchestra’s musical excellence and innovation, and proudly announce him as the recipient of this season’s Distinguished Service Award (see pages 32-33). The Cleveland Orchestra will always honor the traditions and history that have brought us to today. Yet, with our unwavering dedication to musical excellence, we are also committed to embracing changing times and changing circumstances, to approach each new decade in its newness, complexity, and opportunity. With your input, we are exploring new programs to better serve and engage the great people of Northeast Ohio, including: Young Professionals. In January, we launched The Circle, a new opportunity for young professionals to strengthen their relationship with The Cleveland Orchestra. The program brings music lovers aged 21 to 40 together for concerts and networking events, enabling them to connect with musicians, the music, and colleagues in the arts and business communities. The enthusiasm of these young people represents the future, and we are pleased to welcome them and host this new social forum. Severance Hall Facelift. In recognition of changing times and changing needs, this past fall the Orchestra’s Board of Trustees assembled a taskforce to take an intensive look at options for enhancing the concert experience for Cleveland Orchestra attendees. The world has changed since Severance Hall’s renovation in 2000, and we want to ensure that we are supporting world-class performances with a world-class venue and services. After surveying audience members and making an assessment in comparison to other local facilities and national concert halls, we are now creating a roadmap for improvements with the biggest positive impacts for our patrons. I look forward to sharing recommendations, and asking for your further counsel and advice, in the coming year. Open Dialog. Also this season, we began a series of “Coffee and Conversation” gatherings to bring long-term supporters and concertgoers to Severance Hall and give them a transparent look at — and opportunity to ask candid questions about — the Orchestra’s ideas for change. The dialogue between donors, board members, musicians, and ticket buyers, and the feedback that has emerged from these events, is helping to shape the Orchestra’s plans for a second century of service to the people of Northeast Ohio. Young Audiences. Alongside these newest initiatives, we continue to pursue our goal of building the youngest audience of any orchestra. Under 18s Free — which offers a free ticket to select concerts for a young person with every paying adult — has been so successful at attracting families to Orchestra performances in Northeast Ohio that we have expanded it to Miami during this season’s four-week residency in Florida. Young people make up 20% of Orchestra audiences this season, the result of the continued popularity of Under 18s Free, along with the Orchestra’s Student Advantage program and Frequent Fan Card. Their passion for music represents our future and our ongoing commitment to serve Northeast Ohio.

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.

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 Carnegie 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.

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


“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 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 announces “At Home” neighborhood residency in Lakewood for May 2014 The Cleveland Orchestra and Lakewood have anat home nounced a new partnership to present the Orchestra’s next “At Home” neighborhood residency in May 2014. The centerpiece of this week of activities, education programs, and public performances will be a free Cleveland Orchestra concert at the Civic Auditorium in Lakewood on Saturday evening, May 24. The concert will be recorded for a delayed broadcast on WVIZ/PBS ideastream, and a radio broadcast on WCLV 104.9. The television broadcast will also feature a segment about the Orchestra’s performances, collaborations, and events in Lakewood. “Creating a grassroots opportunity for Lakewood to experience perhaps the greatest orchestra in the world at a very personal level is a cultural experience that we will remember for years to come,” commented Lakewood Mayor Michael P. Summers in announcing the collaboration. “Our increasingly vibrant commercial corridors and neighborhoods will be made ever-more-so by the music and the musicians.” Ian Andrews, executive director of LakewoodAlive, Lakewood’s nonprofit economic development organization, added, “Lakewood is known for its commitment to the arts.  The Orchestra’s events will strengthen this commitment and showcase the city’s great quality of life, local organizations, restaurants, schools, and businesses that make our community special.” The Cleveland Orchestra introduced its “At Home” neighborhood residency program in May 2013 with a week of performances and activities in the Gordon Square community of Cleveland.

Distinguished Service Award

The Cleveland Orchestra

February 2014

In recognition:

Pierre Boulez


— conductor, composer, teacher, and author — is among the most distinguished musicians active in the world today. Over the course of nearly fift y years, he has led The Cleveland Orchestra in over 220 performances at home and on tour. He has been invited — and has chosen — to return to Cleveland again and again, for recordings and concerts, and in friendship. In half a century of service to Cleveland, he has created a peerless legacy of great music, new music, and unrivalled music-making. Pierre Boulez first led The Cleveland Orchestra in 1965 at the invitation of music director George Szell, making his American professional conducting debut at Severance Hall. He was appointed the Orchestra’s first principal guest conductor in 1969, and served as musical advisor during the two seasons following Szell’s death. He has returned regularly to lead performances with the Orchestra, and in five decades of concerts here has presented works spanning six centuries — by composers as varied as Gabrieli, Rameau, J. S. Bach, and Schubert to Debussy, Janáček, Dalbavie, and Kyburz. Beyond Northeast Ohio, he has conducted The Cleveland Orchestra on tour in Tokyo and Paris, and at New York’s Carnegie Hall. Mr. Boulez has earned widespread respect as a champion of contemporary music. Beginning with the American premiere of his own Figures, Doubles, Prismes in 1965, Boulez has conducted more than thirty Cleveland premieres with The Cleveland Orchestra, including the world premiere, in 2000, of Marc-André Dalbavie’s Concertate il suono. In 1986, he conducted the Orchestra in a special two-week series of “Great Composers of Our Time” concerts featuring his own music. The presentation of the 2009 Kyoto Prize to Boulez reaffirmed the importance of his compositions and activities as teacher, conductor, and advocate of new music. Pierre Boulez’s recordings with The Cleveland Orchestra present a brilliant and clearly focused vision of his role as a conductor. These recordings have won five Grammy Awards (with works by Berlioz, Debussy, and Stravinsky). The Cleveland Orchestra can also be heard within Boulez’s recorded cycle of Mahler’s nine symphonies, performing Nos. 4 and 7. And most recently, Boulez recorded the Adagio from Mahler’s Symphony No. 10 and Mahler’s Des Knaben Wunderhorn with Cleveland, as well as performances of both Ravel piano concertos, at Severance Hall. Born in France in 1925, Pierre Boulez studied mathematics before turning fulltime to music as his life’s vocation. During the ensuing decades of his distinguished career, he has held important positions with performing ensembles and teaching institutions in North America and Europe. In 2010, he was invited to celebrate his eighty-fift h birthday with a series of concerts with the orchestras of Cleveland, Chicago, and New York. In 2012, he was inducted into the Gramophone Hall of Fame. With heartfelt thanks for his long and devoted work with this Orchestra, for his ongoing contributions to contemporary classical music, and for his dedication to the highest standards of artistic excellence, the Musical Arts Association is pleased to present Pierre Boulez with its highest award for distinguished service.

Concert Program — Week 12





present works by two titans of classical music — Gustav Mahler and Johannes Brahms. Written when each composer was still young, their mature musical styles are nevertheless clearly earmarked and already on display. The program begins with a discarded movement from Mahler’s first symphony. Named for blooms of the flowery sort, its nearly static quality reminds us of some of Mahler’s dazzling later adagios. Mahler’s early Songs of a Wayfarer tell a diff erent sort of story, of love’s journey Mahler through jealousy and misery to peace. Creat age 31, in 1891. ated in response to a youthful romance, these songs showcase Mahler’s great capacity for encapsulating emotions into, and articulating texts within, music. After intermission, we come to Brahms. Here, the composer’s own work — originally for piano quartet from 1861 — has been somewhat magically transformed, nearly eight decades later. As orchestrated by Arnold Schoenberg, it is sometimes jokingly (but aptly) called Brahms’s Fift h Symphony. Filled with Brahmsian melody and harmonies, there is here instrumentation that surprises in unexpected and warm-hearted ways. Schoenberg, one of the 20th century’s great avant garde composers, was also one of its master orchestrators. Showing the wisdom of fully understanding rules before you break them, Schoenberg’s own modern music was firmly rooted in the classics. His refurbishment of Brahms’s youthful quartet is masterful. —Eric Sellen

With great regret, Pierre Boulez, who was to have led this week’s concerts, is unable to come to Cleveland to conduct his planned concerts this month due to health issues. Conductor Marc Albrecht has graciously agreed to step in with the program being presented this weekend.

Introducing the Concerts


Blumine, Symphonic Movement composed 1884-1888



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


M A H L E R ’ S F I R S T S Y M P H O N Y is well established today as a regular item in the symphonic repertoire, but in its early incarnations it was not well received and not often performed. It took Mahler a long time to find its final form and it took the public a long time to recognize its originality and power. Composition of this work was spread over a period of four years, 1884-1888, during which Mahler was leading a hectic life as opera conductor first in Kassel, then in Prague, with little time for composition. Blumine was originally part of this vast five-movement symphonic poem, first performed after Mahler had taken up a position as opera conductor in Budapest in 1889. Response was cool. He did not repeat it there, and after two years he moved on from Budapest to Hamburg, where he gave it a second performance in October 1893. This time it was billed as “Titan, tone poem in symphonic form,” with an extensive program that divided the work into two sections. Part One (three movements) was “From the days of youth: flower, fruit, and thorn pieces.” Part Two (two movements) was “Commedia humana,” covering an immense emotional range, in Mahler’s very personal fashion. Blumine was the second movement in this scheme, a fanciful title derived from Blume, the German word for “flower.” It originated in the incidental music he had written in 1884 for a play, The Trumpeter from Säkkingen, adapted from a popular humorous poem by Joseph von Scheffel. It was a straightforward and simple slow movement placed between the big opening movement and the scherzo, and making a contrast with the much more complex slow movement based on a funeral march in the second half. By the time that Mahler found a publisher for the symphony in 1899, it was reduced to four movements, bereft of its elaborate program, and titled simply Symphony No. 1. The Blumine movement disappeared, to be discovered by Donald Mitchell in the Osborn Collection at Yale University in 1966. It was part of a copy of the five-movement score bought by Mrs. James M. Osborn from the family of Jenny Feld, a friend of Mahler from his student days in Vienna. Most conductors perform the First Symphony without the Blumine movement, although many writers have argued that About the Music

its inclusion enhances the structural balance of the work. (No one expects a Mahler symphony to be short, in any case.) The music is, for Mahler, lightly scored and thinly textured, perhaps because of its origin as music for an undersized theater orchestra. The main tune, disarmingly naïve in character, is given to the Säkkingen trumpeter, with barely a hint of chromatic inflexion. The movement’s tempo is marked andante, and its pulse and clear rhythmic outlines remain unchanged throughout. A certain prominence is given to the harp, especially at the end. Flowers, for Mahler, are apparently free of complexity and stress. —Hugh Macdonald © 2014 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 Mahler’s first sketches of what was to become his First Symphony date to 1884, although much of the detailed composition occurred in the first half of 1888. The first performance of the completed five-movement work, under the name “Symphonic Poem in Two Parts,” took place in November 1889 in Budapest under the composer’s direction. A second performance took place in October 1893 in Hamburg, titled “Titan, Tone-Poem in the Form of a Symphony.” At these initial

Severance Hall 2013-14

performances, what is now known as the “Blumine” movement was the second, or middle movement, in the symphony’s first half. In 1896, Mahler discarded this movement and performed the remaining four movements as his “Symphony No. 1.” The symphony was published in 1907-08. The “Blumine” movement was unpublished and largely unknown until 1966, when a manuscript was discovered at the Yale University Library. Its first modern performance was given in

About the Music

June 1967 at the Aldeburgh Festival in England, conducted by Benjamin Britten. “Blumine” runs just over 5 minutes in performance. Mahler scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, trumpet, timpani, harp, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra has performed this movement only a few times. Eugene Ormandy led the first such performances in November 1971. It was last presented in November 1999, conducted by Jahja Ling.


Songs of a Wayfarer composed 1884-1885 MAHLER SPENT



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


the greater part of his working life as a conductor of opera, yet he never composed an opera himself, and he concentrated instead on songs and symphonies, virtually to the exclusion of everything else. Furthermore, his songs and symphonies overlap, many of the songs being orchestrated and symphonic in construction, many of his symphonic movements being settings of words. In 1884, when he began the four Lieder eines fahrenden Gesellen [“Songs of a Wayfarer”], he was 24, and his only substantial work to date was the cantata Das klagende Lied [“Song of Lamentation”], in which we recognize the first signs of a mature individual style. He had not yet embarked on any symphonies, although the First, which borrowed some substantial material from these songs, was evidently taking shape in his mind. These four songs commemorate the joy and pain of a love affair with Johanna Richter, a singer at the Kassel court opera where Mahler was then assistant conductor. He wrote the poems himself, with a number of ideas borrowed from Des Knaben Wunderhorn [“The Youth’s Magic Horn”], the famous anthology of real and faked German folk poetry published in 1805 to which Mahler turned many times for inspiration. The romantic imagery of flowers, fields, birdsong, linden trees, and lost love, familiar from Schubert and the whole tradition of German artsongs or Lieder, is here sharpened by the compulsive, neurotic edge in Mahler’s personality. The sparse scoring and bare lines are already characteristic, a far cry from the Wagnerian sounds that were everywhere fashionable at the time. The freedom of form and tonality in these four songs is also very bold — none of them ends in the key in which it begins. Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit macht [“When My Darling Is Married”]. The first song finds the wayfarer despondent at the impending marriage of his (or her) beloved to someone else. Birds are heard welcoming the spring, but despondency returns in a morbid fascination in self-consumed misery. Ging heut’ Morgen übers Feld [“I Went This Morning Across the Fields”]. The second song introduces the transparently innocent theme of the First Symphony’s opening movement. The world is bright, happiness is all around. Only at the About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

very end, in a phrase of haunting beauty, does the wayfarer admit that the poem’s author cannot share it. Ich hab’ ein glühend Messer [“I Have a Gleaming Knife”]. The third song is a nightmare. The brass instruments batter on the wayfarer’s skull as the poet dreams of a knife plunged deep as a mortal wound. Sometimes the dream brightens and to a vision of the beloved’s blue eyes and blonde hair, only to be startled awake by the beloved’s mocking laughter; the poem ends longing for death. Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz [“The Two Blue Eyes of my Beloved”]. Finally, against the solemn tread of a funeral march constantly distorted by an extra beat, the wayfarer realizes that the blue eyes are lost and gone, and that only grief remains. Then over the harp’s gentle accompaniment, the words sing of the linden tree, under which the poet last found repose. But the final bars turn to the minor, a touch of irony more telling than any words. —Hugh Macdonald © 2014 At a Glance Mahler composed his Songs of a Wayfarer mostly in 1884, with a few revisions in 1885. He wrote his own texts, though one of the songs was based on a poem from Des Knaben Wunderhorn [“The Youth’s Magic Horn”], a collection of German folk poems. The songs were originally for voice and piano; it is not exactly clear when Mahler orchestrated them. The first public performance was given in Berlin in March 1896,

with baritone Anton Sistermans as the soloist; Mahler conducted the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. These four songs together run about 15 minutes in performance. Mahler scored them for an orchestra of 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets and bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, percussion (triangle, cymbals,

glockenspiel, tam-tam, bass drum), harp, and strings, plus vocal soloist. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented the four songs of Mahler’s Songs of a Wayfarer as a complete cycle in 1958, at concerts conducted by George Szell and with Dietrich FischerDieskau as the soloist. More recently, Bo Skovhus sang them at Blossom in 2001 under the direction of Andrew Davis.

4. Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz [The Two Blue Eyes of My Beloved] Die zwei blauen Augen von meinem Schatz, Die haben mich in die weite Welt geschickt. Da musst ich Abschied nehmen vom allerliebsten Platz! O Augen blau, warum habt ihr mich angeblickt? Nun hab’ ich ewig Leid und Grämen!

The two blue eyes of my beloved, they have sent me out into the wide world. I had to say goodbye to that well-loved place! O blue eyes, why did you gaze into mine? Now I will have sorrow and grief always!

Ich bin ausgegangen in stiller Nacht wohl über die dunkle Heide. Hat mir niemand Ade gesagt, Ade! Ade! Ade! Mein Gesell’ war Lieb und Leide!

I went out into the silent night stealing across the dark heath. No one bid me farewell, Goodbye! Adieu! Farewell! My companions are love and sorrow!

Auf der Strasse steht ein Lindenbaum, Da hab’ ich zum ersten Mal im Schlaf geruht! Unter dem Lindenbaum, Der hat seine Blüten über mich geschneit, Da wusst’ ich nicht, wie das Leben tut, War alles, alles wieder gut! Alles! Alles, Lieb und Leid Und Welt und Traum!

By the road stands a linden tree, where I finally once more found peaceful slumber! Under the linden tree, whose white flowers snowed down all around me, There I could not know, how life continued, for everything, everything was good again! Everything! Everything, love and sorrow and the world and dreams! (English translations by Eric Sellen) 1.855.GO.STORM EXQUISITE PIECES IN A SURPRISING SETTING A Very Surprising Place

the 25-year-old Arnold Schoenberg moved from Vienna to Berlin to work in a cabaret theater that specialized in operetta with a serious message. Although he had had no formal musical training, he had picked up the essentials of orchestration from playing the cello in an amateur orchestra conducted by his friend Alexander Zemlinsky. And so he was entrusted with the mindless task of orchestrating operettas and cabaret songs in great numbers. From this hackwork, he developed a taste for orchestration, which led him later to arrange a number of Bach’s organ works for full orchestra. Schoenberg accomplished the orchestration of Brahms’s Piano Quartet No. 1 in 1937 when he was living in Los Angeles. Having left Germany in 1933 when Hitler came to power, Schoenberg took a job in Boston for a brief period, but suffered badly from ill-health, as he always did in cold climates. So he moved to Los Angeles, where he taught at the University of Southern California and then at UCLA, and although he was settled and employed, he found it hard to get his compositions played. Encouraged by Otto Klemperer, with whom he had worked in Berlin and who was then conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, he wrote the orchestration of the Brahms Quartet between May and September 1937, and it was performed by Klemperer and the LA Philharmonic the following March. A critic on the San Francisco Chronicle, Alfred Frankenstein, wrote to Schoenberg with some questions about the work, and received the following reply: “My reasons: 1. I like the piece. 2. It is seldom played. 3. It is always very badly played, because the better the pianist, the louder he plays and you hear nothing from the strings. I wanted once to hear everything, and this I achieved.” Schoenberg admitted, in his mostly excellent English, that there were “heavy problems.” In fact, the orchestration is masterly, given that Schoenberg was not trying to reproduce Brahms’s orchestral style. He was instead writing for an enlarged modern orchestra, including such instruments as E-flat clarinet, glockenspiel, and xylophone, which Brahms would never have used. Even a cymbal clash sounds foreign in Brahms’s world. But the original piano quartet (for violin, viola, cello, and piano) is writAbout the Music

ten with thick textures that Brahms learned to avoid in his two later works for the same combination of instruments. The third movement calls for such constant double-stopping from the viola (playing two notes at once, with the bow on two strings) that at least one extra instrument often seems to be in use. In general, but by no means throughout, Brahms’s piano part is assigned to the winds, with the string parts remaining with the strings. But the palette of mixed colors, and the idiomatic writing for all instruments, is very impressive. Schoenberg once referred to his arrangement, no doubt facetiously, as “Brahms’s Fift h Symphony.” It is typical of Brahms to set out his main theme, without introduction or accompaniment, as a bare melodic line at the very outset, as if announcing this as a serious symphonic movement in full sonata form. The second movement has a scurrying rhythm with a constantly repeated note as a distinctive element, and its middle section is a notch faster. If this second movement is regarded as the scherzo (Brahms did not name it thus), the third movement is the slow movement, although it has grandeur, not intimacy — and the central, quicker part of the movement has a military stamp perfectly suited to Schoenberg’s splendid realization for full orchestra. The last movement is the famous “Rondo alla zingarese,” one of Brahms’s ventures into the music of the Hungarian gypsies. The original is, of course, a brilliant movement, but Schoenberg goes to town with some virtuoso writing for the orchestra, with full percussion. The original Quartet was composed in 1861 during a twoyear spell that Brahms spent in his native city of Hamburg. A year later, he visited Vienna and a performance there with Brahms himself at the piano made such an impression on the Viennese that he moved there permanently, knowing that he would have a sympathetic public in a city with a deep musical tradition. Born in Vienna in 1874, Schoenberg grew up with a profound reverence for Brahms’s music, and it was partly in defiance of the modernists of the inter-war years, such as Stravinsky and Hindemith, who disdained Brahms, that he felt impelled to make his music better known, even in the form of an arrangement. Klemperer told the story that after one of the rehearsals someone said to him: “I don’t know why people say Schoenberg doesn’t write melodies. This piece is full of melody.”

At a Glance Brahms wrote his Piano Quartet in G minor (for piano, violin, viola, and cello) in 1861. At the first performance in November that year, the piano part was played by Clara Schumann. Schoenberg transcribed Brahms’s quartet for full orchestra in 1937. The first performance was given on May 7, 1938 (Brahms’s birthday) by the Los Angeles Philharmonic conducted by Otto Klemperer. This work runs about 45 minutes in performance. Schoenberg’s orchestration calls for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (third doubling english horn), 2 clarinets and bass clarinet, 2 bassoons and contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangle, cymbals, tambourine, xylophone, glockenspiel, snare drum, bass drum), and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented Schoenberg’s orchestration of Brahms’s Quartet in G minor in October 1938 (just months after the world premiere), conducted by Artur Rodzinski. The most recent performances were in May 2000, conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi.

CASABLANCA THE STORY The movie Casablanca was premiered in New York City on November 26, 1942. During World War II, many Europeans fleeing from Nazi Germany sought refuge in America. To get to the U.S., one route led through the city of Casablanca in Morocco, at the time a French protectorate and in the early years of the war under control of the French Vichy government that was aligned with the Nazi occupation of France. Once in Casablanca, refugees still had to obtain exit visas, which were not easy to come by. The time is December 1941. The hottest spot in all of Casablanca is Rick’s Cafe, operated by Rick Blaine, an American expatriate, who for some reason can’t go home. Two German couriers are killed and the documents they were carrying are taken. One of Rick’s regulars, Ugarte, entrusts to Rick some letters of transit, giving the bearer free passage to Portugal. Before he can sell them, however, Ugarte is arrested for killing the couriers — but Rick has possession of the transit letters. Captain Renault, the Chief of Police, who is neutral in his political views, informs Rick that Victor Laszlo, a resistance leader from Czecho-


slovakia, is in Casablanca — and that Laszlo will do anything to get an exit visa. Renault has been instructed by Major Strasser of the Gestapo to keep Laszlo in Casablanca. Laszlo goes to Rick’s for the pre-arranged meeting to buy the letters from Ugarte. With Ugarte now under arrest, Laszlo has to find another way. Laszlo’s wife, Ilsa Lund, is with him. Ilsa became entangled with Rick in Paris, and when they meet again some of Rick’s emotional wounds reopen. Rick’s stonecold heart is, in fact, a defense against Ilsa’s having left him. Laszlo learns that Rick has the transit letters, but refuses to give them to him — because Rick doesn’t “stick his neck out for anyone.” Laszlo voices fervent French patriotism, and Strasser has the club closed. Laszlo is later arrested for a minor offense. Rick convinces Renault to release Laszlo in exchange for trapping the Frenchman with a more serious charge. Rick doublecrosses Renault and arranges for Laszlo to escape with Ilsa. Renault and Rick come to terms, helping one another in wartime circumstances.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA conducted by Franz Welser-Möst


Don’t miss this unique, made-for-Cleveland opera presentation! Staged at Severance Hall with an international cast and innovative, original animated projections. While plumbing the depths of human experience, The Cunning Little Vixen tells a charmingly bittersweet tale of love, peril, freedom, f and family. The opera’s title character, portrayed by Czech soprano Martina M Janková, wends her way through life’s cycles of learning and danger, dange love and happiness. Janáček’s score mixes lyrical symphonic writing with wit the songful serenity and energetic pulse of Moravian folk music. This Cleveland Orchestra opera presentation is supported in part by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and by the National Endowment for the Arts

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.

Robert Schumann’s symphonies are intensely personal ideals of what classical music can represent — life’s joys and travails, momentary sorrow and uplifting joy. Their glowing lyricism, drama, and evocative atmosphere defined the style of what a Romantic symphony can be. Renowned for his interpretations of this tremendously imaginative composer, Christoph von Dohnányi returns for these all-Schumann concerts.
