Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director Spring 2014 Two of this season’s major projects take place in May — following many months of planning and much preparation. The first is the premiere here at Severance Hall of our brand-new, made-for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen, with evening performances on May 17, 20, and 22, and a special matinee on Saturday, May 24. At the same time, from May 17 to 24, the Orchestra is celebrating a week of musicmaking in Lakewood during our second “At Home” neighborhood residency. Together, these two projects showcase our commitment to serving the community with diverse performances and collaborative partnerships. Franz Welser-Möst is at the center of both projects. In addition to leading the performances of Vixen, he will conduct an Education Concert for Lakewood High School students on May 23 and the culminating free public concert of our “At Home” in Lakewood residency on Saturday evening, May 24, bringing to a close an action-packed week of music performances, community activities, and public musical get-togethers. Every day of that week, Cleveland Orchestra musicians are involved in exciting and sometimes unexpected ways to bring music to the streets and homes of Lakewood, and into the lives of its citizens. The week’s presentations and collaborations also bring to a close the residency’s special semester-long involvement with Lakewood’s music education programs. Franz has also been instrumental in integrating opera into The Cleveland Orchestra’s annual schedule at Severance Hall. This season, with The Cunning Little Vixen, we are creating our own brand-new operatic production for the first time since the mid-1980s. For this, we are jumping forward with technology, to create a presentation that compellingly combines live action with projected video animation. Working with director Yuval Sharon and the creative team at Robot Studios in Los Angeles, we are building this innovative production from the ground up. Because of the unique nature of this opera production for The Cleveland Orchestra and Northeast Ohio, we are using new ways to communicate the excitement of this undertaking. A series of video “Production Diaries” about The Making of The Cunning Little Vixen is unfolding online. These videos feature behind-the-scenes looks at the creative team and processes in motion. I hope that you will take a few minutes to see what’s in store for you at Severance Hall in May. Visit clevelandorchestra.com to view these using the homepage link. It takes concentrated effort, many hands, and dedicated focus to do all of this. Not just from the Orchestra musicians, staff, trustees and other volunteers, but from the community surrounding us, supporting us, and collaborating with us. Our neighborhood residencies are created at the grassroots level. This year’s partnerships with businesses, schools, and organizations from across Lakewood have been stimulating and creative. The opera production is also possible only through the collaboration of many, with support from generous donors, including The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and a group of local donors who have responded to this Foundation’s matching gift challenge to support our ongoing opera presentations. Thank you to everyone involved.

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. 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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

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. A series of prepartory events in partnership with Lakewood schools began in February and continue through the public residency week. 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.

PNC helps introduce children to music and more . . . May 16 and 17 mark the final performances of this season’s PNC Musical Rainbows series, with a program titled “Heavenly Harps.” Sponsored by PNC Bank, Musical Rainbows concerts for pre-K to Grade 1 students take place in Reinberger Chamber Hall and introduce specific instruments and instrument families. With animated support from host Maryann Nagel, Cleveland Orchestra musicians bring their instruments, talk about them, and play short selections. Concerts feature a mix of serious pieces and age-appropriate music from “Old MacDonald” to the “Bingo” song. PNC Bank has provided more than $5 million in grants for local preschool education in recent years, including $2.5 million to support programs developed by The Cleveland Orchestra, Cleveland Museum of Art, PlayhouseSquare, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum.

Support from PNC Bank also enables the Orchestra to engage young children in music and learning, right from the start, with PNC Grow Up Great. This pre-school program uses music to help children develop basic skills like counting and following instructions — necessary for success in kindergarten and beyond. According to PNC Regional President Paul Clark, the results have been more than gratifying. “We have been so impressed with the positive results these programs have delivered for teachers, parents, and students,” he says. “Teachers report that they are more confident and creative in their ability to teach the arts, parents have become more likely to spend time engaging with their children and arts, and students who participate are receiving higher scores in music and imaginative play — with a positive impact on their cognitive, social, and academic development.”

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 chorus@clevelandorchestra.com.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

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,

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Concerto& Symphony THIS WEEKEND’S CONCERTS

feature two masterpieces of Romanticism, a concerto and a symphony, written within a three-year period at the end of the 19th century by two composers at the height of their powers. Antonín Dvořák and Pyotr Tchaikovsky both came from Slavic lands (Bohemia and Russia), but pursued a classic Central European tradition in music. Following in the footsteps of Mozart, Beethoven, and Brahms, this was a style they believed to be universal, and universally good. Nevertheless, both composers infused their work with ideas from their native land’s music. But dressed them so well in Classical traditions that some of their own countrymen called their music “too Germanic” — and meant it in a mean way. Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, performed here by Cleveland Orchestra d principal cello Mark Kosower, is both big and tender. This music, from 1895, sails forth in giant bursts and surging melodies. Within its musical contours, the composer included a loving tribute to his wife’s sister, who had meant much to him through much of his life,, even before he married her sister. To close the evening, guest conductor Herbert Blomstedt has chosen Tchaikovsky’s immensely popular final symphony (No. 6), nicknamed “Pathétique.” Written with all the facility of a great and mature artist, this work from 1893 features music that is both expanust sively happy and inwardly sad. Premiered just days before Tchaikovsky’s accidental death, the symphony soared in popularity as a memorial to his life and work — and continues to confront audiences with both pleasure and questions. Fate was never far from Tchaikovsky’s mind. —Eric Sellen

Herbert Blomstedt Swedish-American conductor Herbert Blomstedt has been leading orchestras for more than half a century. Known throughout the world and especially associated with the San Francisco Symphony, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, and Dresden Staatskapelle, Mr. Blomstedt first conducted The Cleveland Orchestra in April 2006. His most recent performances with the Orchestra were in February 2013. Born in Springfield, Massachusetts, to Swedish parents, Herbert Blomstedt began his musical education at the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm and at the University of Uppsala. He later studied conducting at the Juilliard School, contemporary music in Darmstadt, and renaissance and baroque music at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. He also worked with Igor Markevich in Salzburg and Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood. Mr. Blomstedt is conductor laureate of the San Francisco Symphony, where he served as music director (1985-95). He was subsequently music director of Hamburg’s NDR Symphony Orchestra (1996-98), and of Leipzig’s Gewandhaus Orchestra (1998-2005). Mr. Blomstedt made his professional conducting debut with the Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra in 1954, and subsequently served terms as music director of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Oslo Philharmonic, Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra, and Dresden Staatskapelle prior to coming to San Francisco. In recent years, Herbert Blomstedt has been named honorary conductor of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, NHK Symphony, and the Danish and Swedish radio symphony orchestras. In addition, he has guest conducted many of the world’s great orchestras, including the Berlin Philharmonic, London Philharmonic, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, and the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. Herbert Blomstedt’s discography features over 130 works with the Dresden Staatskapelle, as well as the complete works of Carl Nielsen with the Danish Radio Symphony. His recordings with the San Francisco Symphony are available on Decca. His collaborations with other ensembles, including the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, can be heard on Decca, Deutsche Grammophon, and RCA Red Seal.

DVOŘÁK born September 8, 1841 Nelahozeves, Bohemia died May 1, 1904 Prague

Severance Hall 2013-14

of Dvořák’s three-year tenure as director of the National Conservatory in New York City, the Cello Concerto reflects some of the composer’s American experiences, but is at the same time filled with the spirit of his beloved Bohemia, where he longed to return. The idea of writing a cello concerto certainly had something to do with Dvořák’s experiences in America. He was inspired by the example of his colleague at the National Conservatory, cellist-composer Victor Herbert, who performed his own Second Cello Concerto with conductor Anton Seidl and the New York Philharmonic in March 1894. As a young man, Dvořák had written a cello concerto, but he had never finished orchestrating it, and it remained unperformed. In the case of a cello concerto, orchestration is a matter of crucial importance, because the lower overall pitch of the instrument makes it more difficult for it to stand out against a full orchestral texture (compared with a violin or other higher-voiced instrument). The 24-year-old Dvořák may not have been prepared to meet this challenge, but three decades later the mature composer knew how to solve the problem. He solved it not simply by reducing the volume of the accompaniment, but by placing the solo cello into a variety of constantly changing combinations with selected wind soloists from the orchestra. This results in a delicate, almost chambermusic-like instrumental writing in which the timbre of the cello comes into full display. It is remarkable that despite this chamber-music quality, the concerto also features a symphonic grandeur one doesn’t find in most other 19th-century Romantic cello concertos (such as those by Schumann or Saint-Saëns). Dvořák continues the Beethoven-Brahms tradition in which solo passages (including several prominent ones for the flute) are balanced by full-fledged orchestral statements. The orchestra’s role is not restricted to mere accompaniment — it always shares the limelight with the soloist and often even takes center stage. That is because, clearly, this concerto is much more than a virtuoso showpiece for the soloist. It is in many ways a dramatic, even tragic, work, from its somber opening to the unprecedented closing section of the finale. We have a great deal of evidence to show that Dvořák was About the Music

grappling with important life issues as he was writing his Cello Concerto. Musicologist Michael Beckerman has discussed some of these issues in a highly readable and illuminating book — titled New Worlds of Dvořák: Searching in America for the Composer’s Inner Life and published in 2003 — that every Dvořák lover would read with pleasure. In fact, the concerto memorializes Dvořák’s sister-in-law Josefina Kaunitzová, who became seriously ill shortly after the composer had begun work on the concerto. It is no secret that, as a young man, Dvořák was deeply in love with Josefina, but their union was not to be; instead, the composer ended up marrying Josefina’s sister. In the second movement of his cello concerto, Dvořák quoted one of his own songs — “Lasst mich allein” (“Let Me Be Alone”), Opus 82, No.1 — which, according to leading Dvořák biographer Otakar Šourek, was a favorite song of Josefina’s and appears in the concerto as a personal tribute. This view is supported by the fact that the song’s melody returns at the end of the concerto, in the part that Dvořák revised after his return to Bohemia, and after Josefina’s death. Here Dvořák made the almost unheard-of decision to insert a wistful and elegiac slow section in the middle of a finale that is up to that point dominated by a spirited dance melody. What is more, the solo cello is joined by a second solo voice coming from the concertmaster, with the combination of violin and cello (high and low) creating unmistakable associations with an operatic love duet. Precisely at the moment when one would expect a fast-paced final presto section to begin, the music drifts more and more into sadness. The dramatic first theme of the opening movement is recalled, as is a variant of Josefina’s song. Eventually, and only with some effort, does Dvořák gather up enough momentum in the music for a few measures of Allegro vivo to end the concerto.

In the second movement of his Cello Concerto, Dvorák quotes one of his own songs as a personal tribute to his sister-in-law Josefina, with whom he was once in love — and who died prior to the concerto’s premiere. v

his cello concerto, Dvořák asked his friend, the renowned cellist Hanuš Wihan, to add fingerings and bowing instructions to the solo part. In addition to these, however, Wihan proposed some changes and wrote solo cadenzas (for the first and last movements) that the composer found impossible to accept. Šourek believed that it was because of these differences of opinion that Wihan did not play the concerto’s premiere. But research has discovered that this was not

the case. Wihan was simply not free on the day suggested by the London Philharmonic Society, which then engaged another solo cellist, much to Dvořák’s dismay, because he had already committed himself to Wihan. Dvořák apparently cleared the situation with his friend, was released from his promise, and worked with the new cellist, Leo Stern, intensely for several days. “I hope he will be all right,” he wrote to London a few days before leaving for the premiere. The concert featuring the premiere was extremely long by today’s standards. In addition to Dvořák’s Eighth Symphony and five of his Biblical Songs, it also contained a performance of Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto (No. 5) with pianist Emil Sauer, and additional works. Yet the Cello Concerto was received with enthusiasm. Stern subsequently introduced it to several cities in Europe and the United States, and other cellists took it on as well. Wihan finally performed the work in January 1899 at The Hague, with the Concertgebouw Orchestra conducted by Willem Mengelberg. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

At a Glance Dvořák composed his Cello Concerto in New York during the last two months of 1894 and the first two of 1895, subsequently revising the ending after his return to Europe later that spring. In the published score (1896), he dedicated the concerto to cellist Hanuš Wihan. The first performance was given on March 19, 1896, by the London Philharmonic Society at Queen’s Hall in London, with Leo Stern as soloist and the composer conducting. The

United States premiere took place on December 19, 1896, with cellist Alwin Schroeder and the Boston Symphony Orchestra conducted by Emil Paur. This concerto runs about 40 minutes in performance. Dvořák scored it for 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 3 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, triangle and strings, plus the solo cello. The first Cleveland performance of Dvořák’s Cello

Concerto took place on March 4, 1918, at Grays’ Armory, when Pablo Casals was soloist with the visiting New York Philharmonic under Josef Stransky. Casals was also the first artist to play the work with The Cleveland Orchestra, at a pair of concerts in January 1924, conducted by Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been programmed frequently since that time, most recently in November 2012, with cellist Yo-Yo Ma, under Carlos Miguel Prieto’s direction.

P H OTO BY R O G E R MA S T R O I A N N I

Described as “an extraordinary talent” by the legendary cellist and teacher Janos Starker, Mark Kosower became principal cello of The Cleveland Orchestra in July 2010 and subsequently joined the faculty at the Cleveland Institute of Music. He previously served as solo cellist (a position equivalent to the American title principal cello) of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra in Germany (2006-10) and was professor at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music (2005-07). In addition to his orchestral career and teaching activities, Mark Kosower continues an active career as a soloist. Highlights of recent seasons include his debut with the Rotterdam Philharmonic, as well as appearances with the Venezuelan Symphony Orchestra, Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and at Eastern Music Festival. In previous seasons he has appeared internationally with the Orchestre de Paris, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Beijing’s China National Symphony, National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan, and the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra, among others. In the United States, his appearances as a soloist have included engagements with the orchestras of Detroit, Houston, Indianapolis, Minnesota, Milwaukee, Ravinia, St. Paul, and Seattle. An active advocate of 20th- and 21st-century music, Mark Kosower has brought lesser-known contemporary masterworks to international attention in recent years, demonstrated by two recent albums on the Naxos label, the first featuring the complete cello concertos of Alberto Ginastera (making Kosower the first cellist to record the complete works for solo cello by this composer) and a second album with the world premiere recording of Miklós Rózsa’s Rhapsodie for solo cello and orchestra. Mr. Kosower also recently recorded works by Reger, Strauss, and Eberhard Klemmstein with pianist Jee-Won Oh for the Ambitus label, and has recorded for Delos and VAI. As a recitalist, Mark Kosower has appeared on the Great Performers series at Lincoln Center, and at the Kennedy Center, Aspen Music Festival, Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, and the National Gallery in Washington D.C. He has also performed with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center and the Juilliard String Quartet. Born in Wisconsin, Mark Kosower began studying cello at the age of one-anda-half with his father, who studied with former Cleveland Orchestra principal cello Ernst Silberstein. He holds a bachelor’s degree and artist diploma in cello performance from Indiana University, where he studied with Janos Starker, and a master’s degree and artist diploma in cello performance from the Juilliard School, where he studied with Joel Krosnick. Mr. Kosower’s many accolades include an Avery Fisher Career Grant, and being a top prize winner in both the Rostropovich and Pablo Casals International Cello Competitions. Severance Hall 2013-14

Severance Hall 2013-14

of October, in 1893, Tchaikovsky conducted the premiere of his Sixth Symphony in St. Petersburg. Nine days later, he was dead. His death was sudden and unexpected, and in all probability due to the cholera epidemic that had broken out in St. Petersburg — the story that used to enjoy a certain currency in the music world, about a suicide forced upon the composer by his homosexuality, is now widely discounted. Yet there is no mistaking the funereal character of this work, which bears witness to what Tchaikovsky biographer David Brown describes as the “deepening inner gloom” of the composer’s last years. Still, this was also the time when Tchaikovsky arrived at the zenith of his international fame — two years earlier, he had been feted throughout his trip to America, had participated in the opening concerts for New York’s new Carnegie Hall, and had been hailed in the press in the New World as well as in the Old. At 53, he was at the height of his powers. The “Pathétique” is not only the most intensely emotional of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies. It is also the one in which Tchaikovsky reached the pinnacle of his art in terms of compositional technique and sophistication. The combination of these two aspects — exceptional emotional richness and supreme craftsmanship — makes the “Pathétique” Tchaikovsky’s crowning masterpiece. Technical devices, such as the re-use of the bassoon theme from the opening movement’s introductory Adagio as the first theme of the Allegro non troppo main section, produce an immediate dramatic effect, enhanced by the brilliant orchestration with divided violas and cellos answered by a quartet of woodwinds. The gulf between this “active” first theme and the expansive, warmly melodic second idea is widened by the fact that the two themes are separated by a lengthy transition section, and a significantly slower tempo (Andante) for the second theme. The movement’s development section carries the tension to a high point through intense contrapuntal activity punctuated by violent syncopated figures in the woodwinds; then we About the Music

hear an almost Mahlerian tragic march, whose rumbling bass accompaniment is derived from the main theme. The full orchestral sonorities of the movement’s recapitulation change the character of the first theme from painful and languid to desperate and dramatic, with the return of the expansive second melody bringing muchneeded solace. The subdued, morendo (“dying away”) ending of the movement foreshadows the feeling of the fourth movement. In between, however, there are two lighter movements: a graceful waltz with a limp (written in 5/4 time, with every other 3/4 measure shortened by a beat), and a lively march whose theme unfolds only gradually and that seems, at least momentarily, to suggest triumph and happiness. (Many audiences have applauded at the ending of the third movement, reacting to the movement’s high ending, only to be surprised that the finale is yet to come. Some are embarrassed at the “mistake” of applauding too soon; others instead try harder to understand Tchaikovsky’s intent.) The respite brought by the two middle movements proves to be only temporary. The fourth-movement finale is one of the most heart-rending Adagios in the history of music. Its doleful B-minor theme (whose notes are played alternately by first and second violins)

The lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestra’s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severance’s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

The Cleveland Orchestra


Student attendance continues to grow at Severance Hall As The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 season has gotten underway, more Student Advantage Members, Frequent Fan Card holders, Student Ambassadors, and student groups are contributing to the continued success of these programs. The Orchestra’s ongoing Student Advantage Program provides opportunities for students to attend concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom through discounted ticket offers. Membership is free to join and rewards members with discounted ticket purchases. For this season, a record 6,000 students have joined. The Student Frequent Fan Card was introduced a year ago with great success. The program is continuing to grow, with the number of Frequent Fan Card holders tripling so far this season over 2012-13. Priced at $50, the Fan Card offers students unlimited single tickets (one ticket per card holder) to weekly classical subscription concerts all season long. The Student Ambassador program is also growing. These young volunteers help to promote the Orchestra’s concert offerings and student programs directly on campuses across Northeast Ohio. Also this year, a group of Student Marketing Advisors was formed to help the Orchestra incorporate student feedback and insight to programs, and give local marketing majors a chance to work closely with the Orchestra’s sales team. In addition, attendance through Student Group sales are also bringing in more and more young people to Cleveland Orchestra concerts. From as far as Toronto and Nashville, these groups make up an integral part of the overall success toward generating participation and interest among young people. All of these programs are supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences, through the Alexander and Sarah Cutler Fund for Student Audiences. The Center for Future Audiences was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.

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

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

The 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.

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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Jane Glover, conductor Imogen Cooper, piano

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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Vladimir Jurowski, conductor Janine Jensen, violin *

Prokofiev’s Cinderella is a fairytale score, delicate and charming. But like all fairytales, a dark undercurrent runs beneath. In this score, the chiming of a clock can sound like a thunderous battlefield, while the waltzes and love scenes sing. Benjamin Britten’s charming Violin Concerto * and Stravinsky’s explosive Scherzo fantastique round out this weekend’s season-ending concerts with guest conductor Vladimir Jurowski and violinst Janine Jensen. Sponsor: Baker Hostetler * Not part of the Friday Morning concert.
