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.

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

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 were 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.”

The Board of Trustees extends special thanks to the members of The Cleveland Orchestra for donating their services for four performances this season as part of the musicians’ ongoing commitment to provide additional revenue-generating opportunities to benefit the institution. These four concerts include the Severance Hall Gala with Itzhak Perlman in September 2013 and a benefit concert in Palm Beach, Florida, in January 2014, along with performances at New York’s Lincoln Center and in Cologne, Germany, as part of the Orchestra’s touring this past autumn. “These and other donated services each year are a meaningful demonstration of the musicians’ commitment to this institution’s future,” notes Gary Hanson, executive director. “The members of The Cleveland Orchestra are committed to ensuring that the Orchestra can present music as an important and vital part of life.”

The Cleveland Orchestra is pleased to announce the creation of the Joe and Marlene Toot Head Librarian Endowed Chair through a legacy gift to the Orchestra. “The Head Librarian is a critically essential member of the Orchestra — as integral to our musical success as any instrumentalist,” says Gary Hanson. “It is with deep gratitude that I thank Joe and Marlene Toot for making such a generous commitment through their estate.” The current head librarian, Robert O’Brien, is the ninth in that position since the Orchestra’s founding in 1918. He has served as head librarian since 2008. In this role, O’Brien ensures that each musician has the right music on the right music stand at the right time for every rehearsal and concert. He makes all scores available to every musician for individual practice, and ensures that every part and each marking matches the conductor’s needs. He catalogs and maintains the Orchestra’s extensive collection of musical scores — those that are part of the Severance Hall music library and those rented for particular performances. He daily works with tempo markings and musical scores in multiple languages, from German to French, Italian to English, and more. The gift from Joe and Marlene Toot will support the funding of The Cleveland Orchestra’s Head Librarian position in perpetuity. Thousands of generous individuals have made a commitment to the Orchestra through outright endowment gifts or legacy plans, through the annual fund and special project support. To learn more about including the Orchestra in your estate plans, please contact Bridget Mundy at 216-231-8006.

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 were held in mid-April. Those interested can inquire about future audition dates. 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 usually 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

Life, Death &Piccolo T H E C I RC U M S TA N C E S S U R RO U N D I N G

the creation of Mozart’s Requiem have been fictionalized and sentimentalized and turned into high intrigue and mystery since the composer’s death in medias res (literally “in the midst of things”) — including the overly dramatic (but entertaining) film Amadeus. The facts are not quite as clear or exciting. The Requiem was anonymously commissioned by the somewhat self-absorbed Count Franz von Walsegg, who most likely intended to pass it off as his own composition. Mozart’s death left only the first movement completely written out in score, as well as detailed sketches for several additional movements and sections. Constanze Mozart eventually asked Franz Xaver Süssmayr, a colleague of Wolfgang’s (and perhaps a sometime student) to complete the work in order to receive payment — the Mozarts’ finances were continually on the verge of bottoming out from the composer’s extravagant tastes and lack of care in counting. Süssmayr later claimed that he and Mozart had talked through the Requiem in Mozart’s final days. Whether this is true or not, Süssmayr’s completion of the work soon became the accepted version of a “final masterpiece.” Though Mozart might well have made it more so himself, had fate been different, the Requiem is a powerful and affecting work. @ Our concerts this week with guest conductor David Robertson also include an orchestral piece about the power of rapture (religious or otherwise) by Christopher Rouse, and a new piccolo concerto created by Gabriela Lena Frank for Cleveland Orchestra principal piccolo Mary Kay Fink. —Eric Sellen

Rapture at my home in Pittsford, New York, on January 9, 2000. Commissioned by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, it is dedicated to Mariss Jansons, the orchestra’s music director at that time. It should be noted that the title of this score is not “The Rapture.” The piece is not connected to any specific religious source. Rather, I used the word “rapture” to convey a sense of spiritual bliss, religious or otherwise. With the exception of my Christmas work, Karolju, this is the most unabashedly tonal music I have composed to date. I wished to depict a progression to an ever more blinding ecstasy, but the entire work inhabits a world devoid of darkness — hence the almost complete lack of sustained dissonance. Rapture also is an exercise in gradually increasing tempos. It begins quite slowly but, throughout its eleven-minute duration proceeds to speed up incrementally until the breakneck tempo of the final moments is reached. Although much of my music is associated with grief and despair, Rapture is one of a series of more recent scores — such as Compline (1996), Kabir Padavali (1997), and Concert de Gaudí (1998) — to look “towards the light.” —Christopher Rouse

At a Glance Rouse wrote Rapture in 1999-2000 on a commission from the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra. It received its world premiere on May 5, 2000, in Pittsburgh, conducted by Mariss Jansons, to whom the work is dedicated. This work runs just over 10 minutes in performance. Rouse scored it for 3 flutes, 3 oboes, 3 clarinets,

3 bassoons, 4 horns, 4 trumpets, 4 trombones, tuba, 2 sets of timpani, percussion (bass drum, tam-tam, crotales, chimes, cymbals, Chinese cymbals, triangle, glockenspiel), harp, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this work for the first time with this weekend’s concerts.

About the Composer CHRISTOPHER ROUSE

is one of America’s most prominent living composers of orchestral music. His works have won a Pulitzer Prize (for his Trombone Concerto) and a Grammy Award (for Concert de Gaudí), as well as election to the American Academy of Arts and Letters. Rouse has created a body of work perhaps unequalled in its emotional intensity. The New York Times has called it “some of the most anguished, most memorable music around.” The critic for the Baltimore Sun has stated: “When the music history of the late 20th century is written, I suspect the explosive and passionate music of Rouse will loom large.” Born in Baltimore in 1949, Rouse developed an early interest in both classical and popular music. He graduated from Oberlin Conservatory and Cornell University, numbering among his principal teachers George Crumb and Karel Husa. Rouse maintained a steady interest in popular music — at the Eastman School of Music, where he was professor of composition until 2002, he taught a course in the history of rock’n’roll for many years. Rouse is currently a member of the composition faculty at the Juilliard School in New York City. In 2012, he became composer-in-residence with the New York Philharmonic, a position that was recently extended for a third season. While Rouse’s catalog of compositions includes a number of acclaimed chamber and ensemble works, he is best known for his orchestral writing. His music has been played by every major orchestra in the United States, and numerous ensembles internationally, including the Berlin Philharmonic, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, Sydney and Melbourne symphonies, London Symphony, Philharmonia Orchestra, BBC Symphony Orchestra, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Stockholm Philharmonic, Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, Orchestre de Paris, Gulbenkian Orchestra of Lisbon, Vienna Symphony, Orchestre National de France, Moscow Symphony, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Bamberg Symphony, and the Orchestre Symphonique du Montreal, as well as radio orchestras of Helsinki, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Leipzig, Tokyo, Austria, and Berlin. Two new works commissioned by the New York Philharmonic are Rouse’s Symphony No. 4, to premiere in June 2014, and Thunderstuck, to premiere in October 2014. He is currently working on an organ concerto. Severance Hall 2013-14

Will-o’-the-Wisp

Tone Poem for Piccolo and Orchestra composed 2013-14

The composer has written the following comments about the creation of this new work, which is receiving its world premiere performances this weekend: AS A CHILD,

by

Gabriela Lena

FRANK

born September 26, 1972 Berkeley, California currently resides Oakland, California

I loved classic fairytales as collected and told by the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Andersen, and others. They conflated easily with the stories my mother would tell me of beautiful Perú, her homeland, which seemed so wild and otherworldly to me as I grew up in urban northern California. It was thus that Cinderella was really a long-lost Inca princess, Rumpelstiltskin was actually an Andean fat-sucking giant known as a pistaqo, and the goose that laid a golden egg was a sullen llama of golden wool that also spat silver on unsuspecting yet lucky bypassers . . . As a composer, I’ve often enjoyed using some of my childish and fancifully personalized re-interpretations of myths to inspire pieces, with varying degrees of overt Latin American musical (especially indigenous Indian) influences. Will-o’-theWisp: Tone Poem for Piccolo and Orchestra, written for Mary Kay Fink and The Cleveland Orchestra, is one such piece. It stems from my vague recollection of a picture book from the public library about a benign yet enigmatic flickering light that danced to a simple “humble song, song humble” before enticing lost travellers ever deeper into a weirdly unsettling forest. This landscape was my youthful fantasy of what my mother’s homeland was like, and Will-o’-the-Wisp makes allusions to Peruvian flute music, albeit subtle. —Gabriela Lena Frank At a Glance Frank created this new work on a commission from The Cleveland Orchestra to create a piccolo concerto to be premiered with Mary Kay Fink. This weekend’s performances are the work’s world premiere. Will-o’-the-Wisp runs about 15 minutes in performance. Frank

About the Composer IDENTITY

has always been at the center of Gabriela Lena Frank’s music. Born in Berkeley, California, to a mother of mixed Peruvian-Chinese ancestry and a father of Lithuanian-Jewish descent, Frank explores her multicultural heritage most ardently through her compositions. Inspired by the works of Béla Bartók and Alberto Ginastera, Frank is something of a musical anthropologist. She has travelled extensively throughout South America, and her pieces reflect and refract her studies of Latin American folklore, incorporating poetry, mythology, and native musical styles into a western classical framework that is uniquely her own. Moreover, she writes, “There’s usually a story line behind my music; a scenario or character.” While enjoyment of her works can be obtained solely from her music, the composer’s program notes also enhance the listener’s experience, describing how a piano part mimics a marimba or pan-pipes, or how a movement is based on a particular type of folksong, where the singer is mockingly crying. Even a brief glance at the titles of her works evokes specific imagery: Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout, Cuatro Canciones Andinas, or La Llorona: Tone Poem for Viola and Orchestra. Frank’s compositions also reflect her virtuosity as a pianist — when not composing, she is a sought-after performer, specializing in contemporary repertoire. Gabriela is a recipient of the 2009 John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellowship, a 2010 USA Artist Fellowship given each year to fift y of the country’s finest artists, and a 2013 Medal of Excellence from the Sphinx Organization for outstanding young Black and Latino leaders. A member of the Silk Road Ensemble, Frank has received commissions from Yo Yo Ma and the Kronos Quartet, and has also been championed by some of this country’s best orchestras, including those of Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, New York, Philadelphia, and San Francisco. In 2013, she became composer-in-residence with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra and conductor Leonard Slatkin, and, in 2014, begins a residency with the Houston Symphony and Andrés Orozco-Estrada. Frank’s recent premieres include The Singing Mountaineers for the Andeanindigenous band Huayucaltia and the Los Angeles Master Chorale, Saints for the Berkeley Symphony (with soprano Jessica Rivera, mezzo-soprano Rachel Calloway,

and the San Francisco Girls Chorus, with conductor Joana Carneiro), La Centinela y la Paloma / “The Keeper and the Dove” (a song cycle for Dawn Upshaw and the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra with words by Frank’s frequent collaborator Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Nilo Cruz), New Andean Songs for the Los Angeles Philharmonic’s Green Umbrella new music series, Quijotadas for the Brentano String Quartet, and Jalapeño Blues for Chanticleer (based on the Spanglish poetry of renowned Chicano poet Trinidad Sánchez). Gabriela Lena Frank has been recognized by the Grammy Recording Academy as both composer and pianist. Inca Dances with guitarist Manuel Barrueco and the Cuarteto Latinoamericano and released on the Tonar Music Label received a 2009 Latin Grammy for Best Classical Contemporary Composition. Ritmos Anchinos for the Silk Road Ensemble’s Off the Map album on the In A Circle Records label received a 2010 Grammy Award nomination for Best Classical Crossover Album. And Hilos, a Naxos label disc devoted exclusively to Frank’s works by the Alias Chamber Ensemble (with Frank playing), received a 2011 Grammy Award nomination for Best Small Ensemble Performance. Frank is the subject of several scholarly books, including the The Musics of Latin America (W.W. Norton), Women of Influence in Contemporary Music: Nine American Composers (Scarecrow Press), and In her Own Words (University of Illinois Press). Frank is also the subject of two PBS documentaries: Peregrinos/Pilgrims: A Musical Journey, documenting her symphony inspired by interviews with Latino immigrants in Indianapolis, and Compadre Huashayo, documenting her work in Ecuador composing for the Orquesta de Instrumentos Andinos, comprised entirely of native highland instruments. Gabriela Lena Frank attended Rice University in Houston, Texas, where she earned a B.A. (1994) and M.A. (1996). There she studied composition with Sam Jones, and piano with Jeanne Kierman Fischer. At the University of Michigan, where she received a D.M.A. in composition in 2001, Frank studied with William Albright, William Bolcom, Leslie Bassett, and Michael Daugherty, and piano with Logan Skelton.

Mary Kay Fink

Principal Piccolo Anne M. and M. Roger Clapp Endowed Chair The Cleveland Orchestra

Mary Kay Fink joined The Cleveland Orchestra’s flute section in 1990 and made her Cleveland Orchestra debut as piccolo soloist in Vivaldi’s Concerto in A minor (RV445) at the 1994 Blossom Music Festival. She has since performed as piccolo soloist with the Orchestra at Severance Hall and at Blossom. In May 1999, she was a flute soloist in Nicholas Underhill’s Aspirant Variations, alongside her colleagues in the Orchestra’s flute section. Her most recent solo appearance with The Cleveland Orchestra was in April 2005, performing Bruce Broughton’s Piccolo Concerto. Born in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Mary Kay Fink began playing piano at the age of six and flute at age ten. She holds a bachelor of music degree from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, where she studied with Robert Willoughby, and a master of music degree from the Juilliard School, where she studied with Julius Baker and Paula Robison. Ms. Fink has studied the baroque flute and Chinese bamboo flute, and with avant-garde flutist-composer Robert Dick. She was awarded first prize in the 1986 National Flute Association Young Artist Competition. The following year, the Association sponsored her formal debut recital at Carnegie Hall’s Weill Recital Hall. Before coming to Cleveland, Mary Kay Fink was a member of the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Madison Symphony (where she was principal flute), and the New York Philharmonic (where she was acting piccolo). She has appeared with a variety of ensembles and organizations, including the Bismarck Symphony, Concert Artists of Baltimore, Madison Symphony, Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra, New Jersey Symphony, and the Ohio Chamber Orchestra. During a recent sabbatical, Ms. Fink performed as a substitute player with the San Francisco Symphony, Minnesota Orchestra, and the Milwaukee Symphony. In 2011, she was a member of the Saito-Kinen Festival Orchestra in Japan under Seiji Ozawa’s direction. Ms. Fink is regularly an invited performer at the National Flute Conventions on both flute and piccolo; she will make her sixth appearance in August 2014, performing Gabriela Frank’s Will-o’-theWisp in Chicago at the Convention’s closing Gala Orchestra Concert.

Requiem, K626 composed 1791, completed posthumously by Franz Xaver Süssmayr T H E S T O RY O F

by

Wolfgang Amadè

MOZART born January 27, 1756 Salzburg died December 5, 1791 Vienna

Severance Hall 2013-14

Mozart’s Requiem is well known. In the final year of his life, Mozart received a commission from an Austrian aristocrat (whose identity was not revealed to the composer) to write a Requiem in memory of the aristocrat’s wife. Mozart left the work unfinished at the time of his death. The aristocrat apparently intended to pass it off as his own creation, but eventually withdrew his claim. The Requiem was subsequently completed by Mozart’s student Franz Xaver Süssmayr, who may (or may not) have received some verbal instructions from Mozart prior to the composer’s death. How much of the Requiem, as we know it from the Süssmayr version, is actually Mozart’s work? It is impossible to give a definitive answer to this question, as it is generally believed that Mozart may have played or sung some parts to his pupil — and these have not come down to us in the composer’s own handwriting. What we do have in Mozart’s handwriting is the firstmovement Introit, the vocal parts and bassline of the Kyrie fugue, most of the Sequence section (including the Dies irae, Tuba mirum, Rex tremendae, Recordare, and Confutatis, while the Lacrimosa breaks off after the eighth measure), as well as the Offertory (Domine Deus and Hostias). From the Sanctus on, probably none of the music is by Mozart, except for the last movement. There, in the Communion “Lux aeterna,” Süssmayr simply recycled music from the opening Introit and Kyrie movements, adapting them to a different text. Although Mozart probably never intended the first and last movements to be identical, Süssmayr’s decision has some merit, as it gives the work a well-rounded, unified musical design. The most crucial part of a Requiem is the Sequence, which Mozart set as a cantata in six movements, with chorus and solo voices alternating. After the powerful Dies irae, the wondrous sound of the trumpet on Judgement Day is represented by a solo trombone (one of the earliest great trombone solos in the classical symphonic literature). Each of the four soloists then voices different feelings about the Day of Wrath before joining together as a quartet. Throughout the Sequence, the monumental aspect of the Judgement is expressed by the chorus, while the soloists give voice to the anguish of the individual soul. The Sequence About the Music

culminates in the Lacrimosa, a gripping lament for humanity at the moment when its fate is about to be decided. In the Offertory, Mozart paints the horrors of hell and the attainment of eternal light in equally vivid colors; the promise made to Abraham is represented by a magnificent choral fugue. In the subsequent “apocryphal” movements, Süssmayr did his best to prevent the intensity of the music from flagging. He mostly succeeded, aside from a few awkward moments, which, from more than 200 years of the work’s performance history, have nevertheless become almost hallowed. (In the last few decades, several new editions have appeared, offering alternative solutions, but Süssmayr’s is still chosen for many performances.) Mozart, who fell ill during the composition of the Requiem, may have felt he was writing it for his own funeral. Yet at the same time the work was in many ways a new beginning. It contains many stylistic elements that Mozart would no doubt have developed further, had he not died just weeks before his thirty-sixth birthday. Baroque counterpoint meets an almost Romantic sensitivity here in a completely novel way, but it was left to others to draw the consequences and develop them into the future. —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 Mozart began working on his Requiem in the summer of 1791; the work was left unfinished at the time of his death that December. The score was completed by Mozart’s pupil Franz Xaver Süssmayr, who was born in Schwanenstadt in 1766 and died in Vienna in 1803. Süssmayr filled out various missing parts and also composed entire sections; he may (or may not) have met with Mozart prior to the composer’s death and received instructions about how to complete the work.

52

The Mozart-Süssmayr Requiem was premiered on January 2, 1793, at Vienna’s Jahn Hall in a performance sponsored by Mozart’s longtime patron and friend, Baron Gottfried van Swieten. The traditional Süssmayr version, which is being heard this weekend, runs just under one hour in performance. The score calls for 2 basset horns (lower-pitched members of the clarinet family), 2 bassoons, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, timpani, organ, and strings, in addition to four

The most recent performance of the work by the Orchestra was led by Jahja Ling as part of the 2006 Blossom Festival. The most recent performances by the Orchestra at Severance Hall were in February 1998, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst.

I groan like a criminal, my face blushes with guilt, God, spare a supplicant.

Qui Mariam absolvisti, et latronem exaudisti, mihi quoque spem dedisti.

You who absolved Mary Magdalene and inclined your ear to the thief, have also given me hope.

Preces meae non sunt dignae, sed tu, bonus, fac benigne, ne perenni cremer igne.

My prayers are unworthy, but, Good One, have mercy, that I may not burn in everlasting fire.

Inter oves locum praesta, et ab hoedis me sequestra, statuens in parte dextra.

Grant me a place among the sheep, and separate me from the goats, keeping me at your right hand. P L E A S E T U R N PA G E Q U I E T LY

5. Confutatis Confutatis maledictis, flammis acribus addictis, voca me cum benedictis.

When the damned are dismayed and assigned to the burning flames, call me among the blessed.

Oro supplex et acclinis, cor contritum quasi cinis, gere curam mei finis.

I pray, suppliant and kneeling, my heart contrite as ashes, care for me when my time is at an end.

6. Lacrymosa Lacrymosa dies illa, qua resurget ex favilla, judicandus homo reus. Huic ergo parce Deus, pie Jesu Domine dona eis requiem. Amen.

What weeping that day will bring, when from the ashes shall arise all humanity to be judged. But spare me, God, gentle Lord Jesus, grant them eternal rest. Amen.

IV. OFFERTORY 1. Domine Jeus Domine Jesu Christe, rex gloriae, libera animas omnium fidelium defunctorum de poenis inferni et de profundo lacu! Libera eas de ore leonis, ne absorbeat eas Tartarus, ne cadant in obscurum. Sed signifer sanctus Michael repraesentet eas in lucem sanctam, quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.

O Lord Jesus Christ, King of Glory, deliver the souls of all the faithful departed from the pains of hell and from the deep pit; deliver them from the lionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mouth donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them be swallowed by hell, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let them fall into darkness. But have the holy standard-bearer, Michael, lead them into the holy light which you once promised to Abraham and his seed.

2. Hostias Hostias et preces tibi, Domine, laudis offerimus. Tu suscipe pro animabus illis, quarum hodie memoriam facimus: fac eas, Domine, de morte transire ad vitam, quam olim Abrahae promisisti et semini ejus.

Sacrifices and prayers of praise, Lord, we offer to you. Receive them today for the souls of those we commemorate this day; make them, o Lord, pass from death to the life which you once promised to Abraham and his seed. Mozart: Requiem Text

Lamb of God, you who take away the sins of the world, grant them rest. Lamb of God, you who take away the sins of the world, grant them eternal rest forever.

VIII. LUX AETERNA (COMMUNION) Lux aeterna luceat eis, Domine, cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es. Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine, et lux perpetua luceat eis cum sanctis tuis in aeternum, quia pius es.

May eternal light shine upon them, o Lord, with your saints in eternity, for you are merciful. Give them eternal rest, o Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them with your saints for ever, for you are merciful.

Building Audiences for the Future . . . Today! The Cleveland Orchestra is committed to developing interest in classical music among young people. In fact, we are building the youngest audience of any orchestra in the country. With the help of generous contributors, the Orchestra has expanded discounted ticket offerings through several new programs. In the opening months of the current Severance Hall season, student attendance doubled from a year ago, with 20% of audiences now made up of students enthusiastic for experiencing the best orchestra anywhere. “ U N D E R 1 8 s F R E E ” F O R FA M I L I E S

Introduced for Blossom Music Festival concerts in 2011, our “Under 18s Free” for families program now includes select Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall each season. This program offers free tickets (one per regular-priced adult paid admission) to young people ages 7-17 to the Orchestra’s Fridays@7, Friday Morning at 11, and Sunday Afternoon at 3 Classical Concerts. STUDENT TICKET PROGRAMS

During The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 season, the Student Advantage and Frequent Fan Card programs, Student Ambassadors, and offers for student groups attending together have been responsible for bringing more high school and college age students to Severance Hall than ever before. 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 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, and continues to grow. Priced at $50, the Fan Card offers students single tickets (one per Fan Card holder per week) to weekly Classical Concerts all season long. All of these programs are supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences, including support from the Center’s 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 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.

With this brandnew, made-for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen. Presented with innovative and original animation, this world premiere production places a new perspective on the opera, plumbing the depths of human experience in a charming tale of love, peril, freedom, and family. On the surface, the story is about childish things, but underneath, human emotions boil over and burst apart between the “animals of the forest” and their human interlocutors. (Opera sung in Czech with projected English supertitles.) Directed by Yuval Sharon. Animation by Bill Barminski and Christopher Louie — Walter Robot Studios. Projection and lighting design by Jason Thompson. Costumes and makeup by Ann Closs-Farley. Presented with support from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts.

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

Now in its 28th season, the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra is a full symphony orchestra comprised of some of Northeast Ohio’s best and brightest young musicians. Each season, this acclaimed training ensemble presents concerts of traditional and newer works, filled with an enthusiasm and interest that can rival that of their teachers and mentors. “A gripping performance,” commented the Cleveland Plain Dealer of a recent concert, “one that would have been the envy of an adult ensemble.”

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 Jansen. Sponsor: Baker Hostetler * Not part of the Friday Morning concert.
