Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director April 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. Early April is a particularly busy time for The Cleveland Orchestra’s education department, with the Orchestra performing weekday Education Concerts here at Severance Hall, In-School Performances in Lakewood and Collinwood, and the season’s second Family Concert on Sunday afternoon, April 6. All children should have access to quality arts education at school, because a child’s education is not complete unless it includes the arts. 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. 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. 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.

PLAY BALL! The “home” team of a baseball game played on May 7, 1921, at Oberlin College, between a rehearsal for and the performance of Wagner’s opera Lohengrin that same evening. All of the ball players were members of The Cleveland Orchestra, fielding “Cleveland” (pictured) and “New York” teams for the afternoon of sport.

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

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 in 2013 of an “At Home” neighborhood residency program that brings The Cleveland Orchestra to a single neighborhood or town for an intensive period of special activities and performances, as well as the broaden-

ing of the Orchestra’s ongoing education and community engagement initiatives to include Make Music!, a program of active and participatory experience and learning; the establishment of residencies around the world, fostering creative artistic growth and an expanded financial base — including ongoing residencies at the Vienna Musikverein (the first of its kind by an American orchestra) and in Florida under the name Cleveland Orchestra Miami (featuring an annual series of concerts and community activities, coupled with educational presentations and collaborations based on 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

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.

Details of Orchestra’s “at home” in Lakewood neighborhood residency announced for May 17-24 Four months of education activities presented in partnership with Lakewood schools lead up to an intensive week of free public performances and events, including Orchestra concert on May 24

Cleveland Orchestra News



Severance Hall 2013-14

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


The Cleveland Orchestra and the Lakewood community are joining together to present “The Cleveland Orchestra at Home in Lakewood,” a neighborhood residency that features an intensive week of free public performances and events May 17-24.

The centerpiece of the Orchestra’s activities in Lakewood will be a free Cleveland Orchestra concert led by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst at Lakewood Civic Auditorium on Saturday evening, May 24, at 7:30 p.m. Tickets will be distributed at locations throughout Lakewood beginning on Saturday, April 26. (A delayed telecast of the concert will be presented by WVIZ/PBS ideastream; the concert will be broadcast live on radio by WCLV 104.9 ideastream. The television broadcast will feature a composite of community collaborations, musical performances, and joint events and activities throughout Lakewood.) “Creating a ‘grass roots’ 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 Michael P. Summers, Lakewood’s mayor, in announcing resdiency details. “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, said, “We are ecstatic to have been chosen as The Cleveland Orchestra’s destination for immersion into a Northeast Ohio community.

or an equivalent classical solo piece; Broadway or “pop” tunes are not acceptable. In addition to the prepared piece, students will be asked to sight-read and demonstrate their vocal range. An accompanist is provided at the audition. The Cleveland Orchestra Chorus is one of the few professionally trained, all-volunteer choruses sponsored by a major American orchestra. Coming from nearly fifty Northeast Ohio communities, members of the Chorus perform with The Cleveland Orchestra in subscription and Christmas concerts each year. Previous choral experience and sight-reading skills are required. The Blossom Festival Chorus includes many members of the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus and other Northeast Ohio choral groups. It has established itself as a permanent annual part of the summertime Blossom Festival and has sung in more than 100 concerts since its 1968 debut. Both groups are directed by Robert Porco. Auditions for the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus and Blossom Festival Chorus will be held April 16 and April 19, by appointment only. Those auditioning are asked to prepare two pieces from the classical literature, one of which should be in a foreign language. Each piece should be approximately two minutes in length. Previous choral experience and sight-reading skills are required. An accompanist is provided at the audition. To schedule an audition, call the Chorus Office at 216-231-7374, or send an email to


Spring audition dates for the choral groups sponsored by The Cleveland Orchestra have been announced. The auditions — for adults, youth, and children — are for membership in groups singing during the 2014 Blossom Music Festival and the 2014-15 Season at Severance Hall. Auditions will take place in May and June. The Cleveland Orchestra Choruses embody a long-standing commitment to choral music in which community members of all ages have the opportunity to participate. The Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus is open to students in grades 6-8 and directed by Ann Usher, and the Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Preparatory Chorus is open to students in grades 5-8 and directed by Suzanne Walters. Both groups are holding auditions on June 2, June 7, and June 14. The Children’s Chorus, formed in 1967, provides musical training in vocal production and choral performance skills. The Children’s Preparatory Chorus provides children with initial choral experiences to which younger singers may not have been exposed, while establishing a solid foundation in vocal production techniques. To audition, children must sing one verse of “America” (My Country, ’Tis of Thee) with piano accompaniment in the key of his or her choice and one verse of “America the Beautiful” (Oh beautiful, for spacious skies) without accompaniment in the key of D. Singing scales and doing some rhythmic exercises may also be included in the audition, for which an accompanist is provided. Students in grades 9-12 are welcome to audition for the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Chorus, directed by Lisa Wong, on May 3, May 11, or June 11. Created in 1991, the Youth Chorus helps raise awareness of choral music-making in the schools of Northeast Ohio and encourages students to continue their choral activities through college and into adulthood. The Youth Chorus collaborates each season in performance with the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra. Youth Chorus audition requirements are to prepare a piece from the OMEA Solo & Ensemble list,

Sisters, Rach, Players THIS WEEKEND’S CONCERTS

feature a trio of women performers — in the guises of pianist, post-concert samba singer, and sensuous music about a beguilingly artful storyteller. But don’t be alarmed if you don’t see all three, however, for the concerts across the weekend vary by type, time, tempo, and musical selections. Anchoring all four concerts is Sergei Rachmaninoff ’s monstrous Third Piano Concerto, with pianist Yuja Wang. Rachmaninoff wrote this famously difficult work for himself, bringing together his dual roles as performer and composer. He had large hands and prodigious technique — and the thrill of live performance brings special allure to this big-hearted, melodic concerto. The concerts begin with something altogether different, a symphony written for a “classical” orchestra in more modern times. Sergei Prokofiev meant it as an homage to earlier eras — and as a fresh variation on the past, startlingly vital and virtuosic. A thrill in the old, clarity in the new. For our KeyBank Fridays@7 evening, the concert is bookended with classical Indian music from the heart of Asia and the Latin beat of Carnival in Rio with singer Kenia. All amidst the classically eclectic architecture of Severance Hall. Guest conductor Giancarlo Guerrero concludes the Thursday and Saturday evening concerts with Rimsky-Korsakov’s brilliant Scheherazade. Here there is storytelling that is direct — and a matter of life and death. We are guided through tales of a Thousand-and-One Nights as told by Sultana Scheherazade as she attempts to keep her husband, the Sultan, so entertained by her storytelling that he won’t carry out his intention to kill her after just one night. This orchestral showpiece casts solo spotlights on a variety of instruments, within a melodic fabric of exotic tales and delightful adventure. —Eric Sellen

Classical Symphony in D major, Opus 25 composed 1916-17 WITH HIS FIRST



PROKOFIEV born April 23, 1891 Sontsovka, Russia (now Krasnoye in Ukraine) died March 5, 1953 Moscow


Piano Concerto and the Scythian Suite, the young Prokofiev established a reputation, in the 1910s, as the enfant terrible of Russian music, shocking critics and audiences with his highly unconventional harmonies and wild rhythms. His early works seemed to be all about defying authority. He rebelled against his teachers at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, but his music also reflected the more general intellectual unrest of the war years that led to the 1917 revolutions (the overthrow of the Czar in February and the Bolshevik coup in October). Yet in one of his first works written after the revolution broke out, Prokofiev went out of his way to appear non-revolutionary: he spent much of the summer of 1917 working on a “Classical Symphony,” ostensibly conceived within the harmonic and structural world of Haydn’s symphonies. In his autobiography, Prokofiev wrote: “It seemed to me that had Haydn lived to our day he would have retained his own style while accepting something of the new at the same time. That was the kind of symphony I wanted to write: a symphony in the classical style. And when I saw that my idea was beginning to work, I called it the Classical Symphony: in the first place because that was simpler, and secondly, for the fun of it, to ‘tease the geese,’ and in the secret hope that I would prove to be right if the symphony really did turn out to be a piece of classical music.” The first ideas for the symphony date from 1916 — the third-movement “Gavotta” was written that year, and the first and second movements were sketched. The bulk of the work was completed during the summer of 1917, in a country house where Prokofiev was sheltered from the revolutionary political turmoil of that difficult summer. The composer had left his piano in the city, having decided for the first time to write without one. “I believed that the orchestra would sound more natural,” he wrote later, and in fact, he achieved a bright and delicate orchestral sound that his earlier works didn’t have. At 15 minutes’ duration, the “Classical” is the shortest of Prokofiev’s seven symphonies. The themes are all kept brief and developments are sparse, with the emphasis on shorter, wellrounded and separated units. The very simplicity of the writing sometimes becomes the source of musical humor, and the orchestration also adds more than a few comic touches, as in the third movement where, after the middle section, the gavotte About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra

theme returns in sharply reduced scoring, causing the theme to vanish into thin air. A more serious tone is introduced in the second-movement Larghetto, which anticipates the lyricism of Prokofiev’s Soviet-period works from the 1930s. But the work ends on a cheerful note, with a sparkling finale that is hard to listen to without at least a smile. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

Peter Laki is a musicologist and lecturer on classical music. He is a visiting associate professor at Bard College.

At a Glance Prokofiev wrote most of his Classical Symphony during the summer of 1917. He conducted the first performance on April 21, 1918, in St. Petersburg (renamed Petrograd at the time). This work runs about 15 minutes in performance. Prokofiev scored it for a classical orchestra of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony in December 1933, under the direction of Ar-

tur Rodzinski. The most recent performance was in May 2013 at Saint Colman Catholic Church as part of the Orchestra’s inaugural neighborhood residency, “The Cleveland Orchestra at Home in Gordon Square,” led by James Feddeck. The Orchestra’s most recent performance at Severance Hall was in January 2000, when Christoph von Dohnányi conducted it as part of the Re-Opening Concert for Severance Hall, following the building’s expansion and renovation.

Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Opus 30 composed 1909 THE DECADE BEFORE



RACHMANINOFF born April 1, 1873 Semyonovo, Russia died March 28, 1943 Beverly Hills, California

Severance Hall 2013-14

Rachmaninoff ’s emigration from Russia was, without a doubt, the apex of his career as a composer. Between 1907 and 1917 he wrote many of his greatest works. In addition to the Third Piano Concerto, the Second Symphony, the symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead, the choral symphony The Bells, the Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and a large number of songs and piano pieces all date from this ten-year period. The Third Piano Concerto was written for Rachmaninoff ’s first American tour in 1909. Little did the composer realize, at the time he received the invitation, that he would later make his home in America and eventually become a United States citizen. He accepted the offer to tour to North America with some hesitation, and then only because he hoped that the fees he was promised would allow him to realize his dream of buying an automobile. In this work, Rachmaninoff aspired to be worthy of the 19th-century virtuoso tradition in every respect. The last of the great Romantic pianist-composers in the lineage of Chopin, Liszt, and Rubinstein, Rachmaninoff also wanted, it seems, to emulate the synthesis between concerto and symphony achieved in the two piano concertos of Brahms. This is shown by the many orchestral solos that join, and sometimes compete with, the piano soloist, as well as by the numerous thematic links between movements, carefully planned and masterfully executed. Rachmaninoff ’s Third Piano Concerto certainly doesn’t lack pianistic brilliance. But the opening movement’s first twodozen measures of the piano part could actually be played by a child. This is the famous “Russian hymn” theme that some commentators have tried to trace to an old religious chant from Kiev, even though Rachmaninoff insisted that there was no such connection. When asked how his theme had been conceived, the composer said: “It simply wrote itself!” The first theme is immediately repeated by the violas, accompanied by piano figurations that grow more and more complex. The changes in texture are gradual, and in less than three minutes, the “Russian hymn” evolves into a cadenza. A new idea is then announced, first in the form of a staccato dialogue between piano and orchestra, and only then as the singing second theme that we have been expecting. After a spectacular About the Music

elaboration upon this theme, the “Russian hymn” returns in its original form, introducing a free development section, in the course of which the rhythmic accompaniment of the first theme is always clearly heard. At the climactic moment, the tempo becomes faster and the entire orchestra enters fortissimo on a dissonant diminished seventh chord. Soon the pianist launches into the second and main cadenza. Rachmaninoff later replaced his original cadenza with an even bigger one, but he preferred to play the first version when performing the work himself. (The printed score contains both cadenzas, which in fact differ only in their first halves.) The cadenza includes an accompanied portion with haunting wind solos recalling the “Russian hymn,” and a fantasy, for piano alone, upon the singing second theme. Therefore, the cadenza effectively functions as the movement’s recapitulation, and all that is needed afterward is a brief coda. The coda states the “Russian hymn” in its original form one last time, followed by the first staccato version of the second theme that has been heard in this form only once before. The repeat of this almost-forgotten detail at the end shows that a good composer wastes nothing, and every detail finds its place in the larger structure. The formal design of the movement is, in fact, quite original and by no means as conservative as Rachmaninoff is often made out to be. The second-movement “Intermezzo” opens with an orchestral introduction that gives the pianist the only respite in the entire concerto. The soulful melody, presented in turn by woodwinds and strings, is subsequently taken over by the piano and is considerably intensified in the process. (One of the transitional passages from the first movement, a descending sequence in thirds, is recalled by the solo piano, with the addition of some sensuous chromatic harmonies.) The virtuoso figurations surrounding the theme form a bridge to the next section, a brief scherzando, in which the “Russian hymn” from the first movement reappears, played by the clarinet and bassoon. The “Intermezzo” melody is then recalled, followed by a transition of a few measures leading into About the Music

the last movement. The third-movement finale is in a broad A-B-A form. The “A” section consists of a string of themes with a sharp rhythmic profile, plus an expansive lyric idea. The “B” section itself can be divided into three sections, with a central episode marked Lento molto espressivo (“slow, very expressive”) flanked by a brilliant scherzando. The entire “B” section is based on material from the first movement, so that what was originally a lyrical second theme becomes the basis for a series of scintillating variations, combined at one point with the “Russian hymn.” And the Lento is, in essence, another variation on the first movement’s second theme. After a recapitulation of the “A” section, the tonality changes from D minor to D major, for an ending that is both solemn and jubilant. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

At a Glance Rachmaninoff composed his Piano Concerto No. 3 in the summer of 1909 in preparation for his first concert tour of North America later that year. He performed as soloist in the world premiere on November 28, 1909, in New York, with Walter Damrosch conducting the New York Symphony. This concerto runs about 45 minutes in performance. Rachmaninoff scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4

horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, cymbals, and snare drum), and strings, plus the solo piano. The Cleveland Orchestra first presented this concerto at Masonic Hall in November 1928, with Vladimir Horowitz as soloist and Nikolai Sokoloff conducting. Rachmaninoff played the work at Severance Hall in January 1932, under Sokoloff ’s direction. The most recent

performances were given as part of the 2008 Blossom Music Festival, with Kirill Gerstein as soloist conducted by Giancarlo Guerrero, and at Severance Hall in January 2009, with soloist Leif Ove Andsnes led by Franz Welser-Möst. The Cleveland Orchestra and Jean-Yves Thibaudet recorded all the Rachmaninoff piano concertos under the direction of Vladimir Ashkenazy between 1993 and 1996.

(Symphonic Suite after The Thousand-and-One Nights) composed 1888 T H E A N C I E N T TA L E S

of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves, the Spirit in the Bottle, and so many others have delighted many generations of readers throughout the world. When the Arabic original was first translated into French in the 18th century, Western readers were introduced to the fascinating world — half-real and half-imaginary — of an Orient about which they would have had little first-hand information at the time. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov, for one, did know Oriental Arabia from personal experience. As a young officer in the Russian Navy during the 1860s, he toured the Mediterranean region for two-and-a-half years, as well as venturing to the New World. About twenty-five years later, in 1888, he wrote Scheherazade, in which he tried to capture the general atmosphere of the tales told in The Thousand-and-One Nights (also popularly known as The Arabian Nights). The former seaman was naturally drawn to the stories involving Sinbad the Sailor, and included several sea stories in his original outline to the work. Although Rimsky-Korsakov later omitted them from the printed score, his original descriptive titles for each movement are traditionally included in concert programs (see the title page for this evening’s concert). The composer, however, preferred to think of the work as “an orchestral suite in four movements, closely knit by a community of its themes and motifs, yet presenting, as it were, a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale images and designs of Oriental character.” Rather than re-telling the stories in music, in other words, Rimsky-Korsakov wanted to evoke their flavor and to give musical form to a Westerner’s dream about the Orient. The many stories in The Arabian Nights are framed by the larger story of Sultan Shahriar and his wife Scheherazade. The composer summarized this in his preface to the printed score: “The Sultan Shahriar, convinced of the falsehood and inconstancy of all women, had sworn an oath to put to death each of his wives after the first night. However, the Sultana Scheherazade saved her life by arousing his interest in the tales which she told during the 1001 nights. Driven by curiosity, the Sultan postponed her execution day to day, and at last abandoned his sanguinary design.” Day by day, to put off her own execution, About the Music


At a Glance Rimsky-Korsakov composed Scheherazade during the summer of 1888; he conducted the first performance on October 28 of the same year in St. Petersburg. The United States premiere was given on April 16, 1897, by the Boston Symphony Orchestra under Emil Paur. Scheherazade runs about 40 minutes in performance. Rimsky-Korsakov scored it for piccolo, 2 flutes, 2 oboes (second doubling english horn), 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (triangle, tambourine, side drum, cymbals, bass drum, tam-tam), harp, and strings, including a prominent and extensive violin solo. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Scheherazade at concerts conducted by Nikolai Sokoloff in November 1919. The most recent performances were led by Hans Graf in May 2008.

Scheherazade told miraculous stories to the Sultan. For her tales, she borrowed verses from the poets and words from folksongs combining fairy-tales with adventure. Rimsky-Korsakov’s “community of themes and motifs” for the work means that, although the four movements are strongly contrasted in tempo and character, two main motifs are heard over and over again throughout the piece. These are subjected to many variations, which change the rhythm and the orchestration but never the basic melody. The first of these two motifs is announced at the very beginning of the piece by the strings in unison, the second immediately afterwards by the solo violin (which will play a prominent role in all four movements). The themes represent the two protagonists, Sultan Shahriar and Scheherazade, respectively. Thus, throughout the episodes, we are constantly reminded of the basic setting, with Scheherazade speaking and Shahriar listening. The brilliance of Rimsky-Korsakov’s melodic imagination is matched by his mastery of orchestration. Much of his reputation has rested on his superb handling of the symphony orchestra — he wrote a textbook on orchestration that became a classic in the field after his death. In Scheherazade, in addition to the prominent violin solo, he gives important solo turns to cello, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, trumpet, and harp, carefully choosing the specific tone colors to achieve the intended effect. The various instruments blend in novel ways that influenced many composers of the subsequent generation, including Rimsky-Korsakov’s most famous pupil, Igor Stravinsky. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

This Fridays@7 @fterparty is being presented in conjunction with Oberlin College’s Festa Brasileira, a week-long series of events around the music and culture of Brazil. A collaborative effort of the Performance & Improvisation (PI) program, the Music Education Division, and the Oberlin Brazil Project of the Oberlin Center for Languages & Cultures, the program includes masterclasses, performances, lectures, and a movie screening, from April 10-16.

Kenia Acioly was born into a family of Italian origins ns rb in the city of Nova Iguaçu, a distant working-class suburb of Rio de Janeiro. She later lived in Copacabana, in Nin terói (Rio’s sister city across Guanabara Bay), and Leblon (one of the city’s most upscale neighborhoods), gaining insight and understanding of life’s diversity. Interest in music came early; she studied piano and learned to play the guitar by ear. But singing became her path to success in the music world. Influenced by such Brazilian greats as the late Elis Regina, she also began n, Carlistening to North American artists like Sarah Vaughan, men McRae, and George Benson. Her choice of music to interpret came not from the bossa nova of the 1960s but from the talents off the generation of composers that followed and put a new Brazilian sound on the world map. Arriving in the U.S. in 1980, Kenia established herself as the new Brazilian singer on the scene with her recording debut with trumpeter Claudio Roditi on his album Red on Red. She subsequently launched her solo recording career, with four popular and criticallyacclaimed albums for the MCA and Denon labels. She soon was recognized as one of the most popular and successful U.S.-based Brazilian musicians. In 1997, Kenia launched her own label, Mooka Records, with Project Ivan Lins, a tribute to one of Brazil’s most prolific and popular contemporary songwriters.

tural background has led him to a world-class career working with greats of many styles of music — from Herbie Hancock to the New York Voices, from Leny Andrade to Harry Allen. Mueller’s rhythmic finesse and harmonic depth bring an added dimension to any band he plays with. Klaus brings a rare and amazing deftness to the trio of master Brazilian drummer Portinho, with whom he has performed with for ten years. Klaus’s compositions and playing are in full bloom on his new album featuring Portinho on drums and the legendary Ron Carter on bass.

Adriano Santos was born in São Paulo, Brazil. Part of a new generation of Brazilian drummers, he began his drum studies at the age of twelve at Zimbo Trio Music School (CLAM) in his hometown. In 1988, he moved to Boston to study at Berklee College of Music, where he acquired a bachelor’s degree in film scoring. Moving to New York, Adriano studied at City College of New York, where he experienced ensemble lessons with the great jazz legend Ron Carter. He has performed with many top international artists, fromAstrud Gilberto to Leo Gandelman, from Slide Hampton and Paul Winter to the Boston Pops. He is currently performing with the Vinicius Cantuária Group, Matt Geraghty Project, and the Afro-Brazilian band Hãhãhães. He has also recorded Pretty World, a project produced by Eumir Deodato with Japanese sensation Lisa Ono. He has published a new book through Drummers Collective NYC (where he teaches).



Marcus Santos is a contemporary percussionist and educator. A native of Bahia, Brazil, he has committed his life to the studying, teaching, and performance of his hometown’s Afro-Brazilian music and heritage. Marcus has performed for TEDx, the president of Brazil, and the “One World Band” produced by MTV. He was honored with the Outstanding Arts Performer Award by the Brazilian Immigrant Center in 2008, and as Outstanding Percussionist by Berklee College of Music. Marcus has produced a DVD titled Modern Approach to Pandeiro and performed in Musically Speaking II by Bose. He has led workshops on Afro-Brazilian percussion and music for Social Change in universities and conventions around the world. He’s currently the director of the Grooversity network project ( and directs eleven drumming groups in the U.S., Canada, and Italy.

Education and Music Serving the Community The Cleveland Orchestra draws together traditional and new programs in music education and community involvement to deepen connections with audiences throughout Northeast Ohio


T H E C L E V E L A N D O R C H E S T R A has a long and proud history of sharing the value and joy of music with citizens throughout Northeast Ohio. Education and community programs date to the Orchestra’s founding in 1918 and have remained a central focus of the ensemble’s activities for over ninety years. Today, with the support of many generous individual, foundation, corporate, and governmental funding partners, the Orchestra’s educational and community programs reach more than 60,000 young people and adults annually, helping to foster a love of music and a lifetime of involvement with the musical arts. On these pages, we share photographs from a sampling of these many programs. For additional information about these and other programs, visit us at or contact the Education & Community Programs Office by calling 216-231-7355.

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.

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.

Family Concert — The Composer Is Dead Friday May 16 at 7:30 p.m. <18s THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Brett Mitchell, conductor Nathaniel Stookey, narrator There’s dreadful news from Severance Hall — the composer is dead! The musicians are most certainly guilty of something. Where were the violins on the night in question? Did anyone see the harp? Is the trumpet protesting a bit too boisterously? Everyone seems to have a motive, everyone has an alibi, and nearly everyone is a musical instrument. Join the Inspector as he interrogates all the unusual suspects in a concert based on the book by Lemony Snicket with the music of Nathaniel Stookey.

PSYCHO Tuesday April 22 at 7:30 p.m. THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Brett Mitchell, conductor

One night only! The collaboration between director Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrmann resulted in a series of unforgettable films — and the pinnacle of their efforts together is perhaps the most terrifying and powerful movie score of all time. Marion Crane (Janet Leigh) impulsively steals $40,000 from her employer, hoping to start a new life. She decides to stop for the night at the Bates Motel. And then . . . Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience this 1960 cinematic classic as you’ve never seen (or heard) it before! With the film projected on a large screen above the stage and the original film score performed live by The Cleveland Orchestra.

Thursday April 24 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday April 26 at 8:00 p.m.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Herbert Blomstedt, conductor Mark Kosower, cello

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Jane Glover, conductor Imogen Cooper, piano

A pairing of works by two of the greatest melodic masters, written almost simultaneously on opposite sides of the world. Composed during his time in New York, Dvořák’s Cello Concerto is a wistful, lyrical love letter to his Bohemian homeland. In contrast, Tchaikovsky’s emotionally turbulent — and genuinely gorgeous — final symphony explores the triumphs and tragedies of life. Pop Culture Note: Excerpts from Tchaikovsky’s Sixth are featured in the soundtracks of a variety of films, including “Maurice,” the 1997 version of “Anna Karenina,” “Soylent Green,” and “The Aviator.”

Multi-talented conductor, historian, and writer Jane Glover leads a program of gems from the Classical era — with works by Beethoven, Haydn, Vanhal, and one of Bach’s talented sons. Imogen Cooper matches her artistry to Beethoven’s delightful First Piano Concerto, a work sparkling with exuberance and originality. Glover brings the concert to a fitting conclusion with Haydn’s masterful “Drum Roll” Symphony. Pop Culture Note: Jane Glover is well known for her book “Mozart’s Women,” an insightful and readable look at the women who influenced Mozart’s life, art, and desires.
