Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director March 2014 Musical excellence — which has always been a hallmark of The Cleveland Orchestra — goes hand-in-hand with music education, which has been central to the Orchestra’s mission since its founding. The National Association for Music Education has designated March as “Music in Our Schools” Month to raise awareness of the importance of music education for all young people — and to serve as a reminder that all children should have access to quality arts education at school, because a child’s education is not complete unless it includes the arts. These are beliefs The Cleveland Orchestra wholeheartedly shares. We stand with teachers and music programs across Northeast Ohio, who are working every day to harness the power of music to engage, educate, and enlighten students of all ages. The arts are not a frill or an extra. They are a core subject of school learning, vital to realizing each child’s full potential. Throughout his tenure as music director, Franz Welser-Möst has been a great champion of music education. He led The Cleveland Orchestra back into the region’s public schools, performing concerts in local high schools for the first time in thirty years. And it is Franz who is spearheading our Make Music! program to promote active participation in music-making across Northeast Ohio. Musical Introductions. Many of The Cleveland Orchestra’s education programs give students their first opportunity to experience live classical music. PNC Musical Rainbows introduce pre-school and kindergarten students to the instruments of the orchestra (March features The Clever Clarinet). And specially designed Education Concerts, presented for school children each season at Severance Hall, introduce over 20,000 young people to live classical music performed by the Orchestra. Learning Through Music. Music has incredible potential and value as a tool for understanding and unlocking learning for other subjects. With programs such as PNC Grow Up Great and Learning Through Music, Orchestra musicians visit local partner schools and present lessons that utilize music as a catalyst to help teach classroom subjects in new and exciting ways — from math and science, to poetry, social studies, and more. Making Music Together. We also believe in the value of nurturing young musicians — in teaching them how to grow and excel in their music-making, and how to benefit from the life lessons making music offers (teamwork, listening, collaboration, and self expression). Our youth ensembles and community performances all build upon the power of music as an activity to participate in directly, with your hands, voice, and spirit. Throughout the spring, these and other programs I haven’t yet mentioned are taking place as a regular part of the Orchestra’s annual schedule. The best way to learn more about these programs is to attend and observe them. Please contact Joan Katz Napoli, Director of Education & Community Programs, at 216-231-7348 to schedule a visit to witness our music education programs in action — and to experience the power of music to shape the lives of young people in our community.

SYMPHONY AND BASEBALL — In the summer of 1953, when Public Auditorium was undergoing renovations, The Cleveland Orchestra’s series of popular summer concerts became pre-game performances at Cleveland Stadium. In this photograph, Louis Lane conducts while Indians team members pose and listen.
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 marks his twelfth 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

ing of the Orchestra’s ongoing education and community engagement initiatives to include Make Music!, a program of active and participatory experience and learning; the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base — including ongoing residencies at the Vienna Musikverein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra) and in Florida under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami (featuring an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with educational presentations and collaborations based on 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 staged opera and ballet, as well as KeyBank Fridays@7 and Celebrity Series at Severance Hall and movie, themed, and family presentations at Blossom) to play more music for more people; continuing and expanded educational partnerships with schools, colleges, and universities across Northeast Ohio and beyond; 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. Seven music directors have guided and shaped the ensemble’s growth and sound: Nikolai Sokoloff, 1918-33; Artur Rodzinski, 1933-43; Erich Leinsdorf, 1943-46; George Szell, 1946-70; Lorin Maazel, 1972-82; Christoph von Dohnányi, 1984-2002; and Franz Welser-Möst, since 2002. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s permanent home, with later acoustic refinements and remodeling of the hall under Szell’s guidance, 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. Touring performances throughout the United States and, beginning in 1957, to Europe and across the globe have confirmed Cleveland’s place among the world’s top orchestras. 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
THE 2013 -14 SEASON
Severance Hall 2013-14
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 leads an innovative made-for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen at Severance Hall. 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 at New York’s Carnegie Hall, in concert at La Scala Milan, 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.

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 neighborhood residencies in May 2013 in the Gordon Square community of Cleveland. The activities, including a Cleveland Orchestra Concert at Saint Colman Catholic Church, were taped and aired by WVIZ/PBS ideastream. WCLV 104.9 also broadcast the concert on radio. The goals of the neighborhood residencies are to bring increased visibility and vibrancy to greater Cleveland’s neighborhoods, build community through arts and culture in tandem with local partners, and offer more people the opportunity to engage with the music and the musicians of The Cleveland Orchestra. The culminating residency week of activities will include solo and chamber music performances in unique locations, educational programs at local schools, and new artistic collaborations with neighborhood arts and cultural organizations — all in partnership with local businesses and community groups. Complete “at Home in Lakewood” details can be found at clevelandorchestra.com.
