Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director May 2014 The past several weeks this spring have been an especially exhilarating time as we approach the end of the season with this week’s concerts. Between May 17 and 24, the Orchestra premiered a brand-new, madefor-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s opera The Cunning Little Vixen, and, at the same time, presented an intensive week of musicmaking and celebration in Lakewood during our second “At Home” neighborhood residency. These two projects clearly showcased our commitment to serving the Northeast Ohio community with diverse performances and collaborative partnerships. Our achievements with young audiences are just one measure of the season’s success. The Orchestra’s efforts to build the youngest orchestra audience in the country have attracted national attention, including a feature article in the New York Times this month. In the past year alone, more than 40,000 young people have attended Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Blossom and Severance Hall, clearly demonstrating youthful interest in our core concerts as we help peel away the barriers to attending performances — and making great strides toward our goal to cultivate the youngest audience of any orchestra. “Mr. Welser-Möst and his wondrous orchestra” gave “a musical performance of impeccable quality and wide textural range” said the New York Times of The Cleveland Orchestra’s innovative animated production of The Cunning Little Vixen, presented earlier this month. Working with director Yuval Sharon and the creative team at Robot Studios in Los Angeles, the Orchestra created our own brand-new operatic production, compellingly combining live action with projected video animation. This month also brought to a close the Orchestra’s special semester-long involvement with Lakewood’s music education programs as prelude to this year’s “At Home” neighborhood residency. Of the week-long residency, the Plain Dealer said that “The Cleveland Orchestra leaves the sold-out Lakewood crowd wanting more.” The action-packed week of ensemble performances, community activities, and public musical get-togethers drew enthusiastic crowds. The grand finale, a sold-out community concert at Lakewood Civic Auditorium, was broadcast live and is being telecast on Friday, May 30, at 9:00 p.m. by our media partner WVIZ ideastream. A season of so many successes is the result of concentrated effort, many hands, and dedicated focus. Not just from the Orchestra musicians, staff, trustees and other volunteers, but from the community surrounding us, supporting us, and collaborating with us. That young people now make up 20% of Orchestra audiences is the result of extraordinary support from leading donors who care deeply about the future of this institution. We owe a debt of gratitude to everyone who supports The Cleveland Orchestra. And, as the fiscal year comes to a close on June 30, we invite you to consider your own investment in sustaining these bold initiatives for the future. Please be counted among the thousands of supporters who enable this Orchestra to serve the people of Northeast Ohio with quality musical experiences, education programs, and community engagement activities.

DRIVING THROUGH SEVERANCE HALL. When Severance Hall opened on February 5, 1931, the building featured a drivethrough for passenger drop-off and pick-up in operation in the 1930s. Later closed and used as restaurant space, the area became the Smith Lobby, with new restrooms and ticket office space, during the building renovations in 1999-2000.

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.

Cleveland Orchestra violinist receives opportunity with special instrument from Music Settlement donor Cleveland Orchestra violinist Sonja Braaten Molloy has been given a unique opportunity to perform on a special violin that was given to the Music Settlement by acclaimed violinist Melvin Ritter. He and his wife, pianist Jane Allen, were known as “America’s most popular violin-piano duo” in the 1950s and ’60s.  Molloy, who has been a member of The Cleveland Orchestra since 2000, is also a member of the Music Settlement’s teaching faculty. Melvin Ritter — a national Music League Award winner — served as concertmaster for both the Tampa Symphony and the Saint Louis Symphony.  Born in 1923 in Cleveland, he received his initial music instruction at what was then known as the Cleveland Music School Settlement.  When Ritter died in October 2012, his legacy resulted in a heartfelt gift to the Settlement of his 1665 Amati “ex-

Hepton” violin and his Kittel bow. “We felt that such a valued and valuable gift should not live in a vault,” says Charles Lawrence, president of the Music Settlement. “Unplayed violins go mute. It would be wrong to silence the legacy of Mr. Ritter and the ex-Hepton.” After great deliberation, the Settlement’s board of directors chose to loan the violin to a member of its teaching faculty who also plays for The Cleveland Orchestra, and Sonja Molloy was given the honor of using the instrument. “I find it thrilling to imagine all the different personalities who have had the pleasure of playing the ex-Hepton,” says Molloy. “I’m grateful to have been given the honor of rousing this incredible instrument from its recent sleep, and proud to help Melvin Ritter’s legacy resound at the Music Settlement and at Severance Hall.”

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Scherzo,Violin &Ballet! THIS WEEKEND’S PROGRAMS

feature three works from the 20th century. Two are Russian — one a concert piece, the other a suite excerpted from a grand ballet on a familiar childhood subject. For the week’s evening concerts, these are joined by a too-rarely-heard violin concerto by one of England’s greatest writers for voice. Stravinsky’s Scherzo fantastique from 1908 is an early-ish work by this Russian, displaying his showmanship and early mastery of orchestration — with some telltale signs of the experimentation of ideas that would soon cause his name to be known worldwide. Benjamin Britten’s Violin Concerto was written while the composer was in Canada in 1939, just as the start of World War II engulfed Europe. It is at once beautiful and powerful, but in ways unlike some better-known concertos. Violinist Simone Lamsma makes her debut here, playing The Cleveland Orchestra’s first performances of this work. To close, guest conductor Vladimir Jurowski has chosen his own extended concert suite from Prokofiev’s ballet Cinderella. At times sounding like a musical cousin of Prokofiev’s more famous Romeo and Juliet, this ballet score nonetheless has its own unique flavors, sounds, and special delights. And JurowProkofiev, Stravinsky, ski has provided projected supertitles to and Britten help us connect the music directly with the action. —Eric Sellen

Vladimir Jurowski Russian conductor Vladimir Jurowski is acclaimed for his work as an operatic and orchestral conductor. He currently serves as principal conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra, principal artist of the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and artistic director of the Russian State Academic Symphony Orchestra. He is making his Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s concerts. Born in Moscow, Vladimir Jurowski began his musical studies at Moscow University’s Music College. In 1990, he relocated with his family to Germany and continued his education in Dresden and Berlin, studying conducting with Rolf Reuter and vocal coaching with Semyon Skigin. Mr. Jurowski made his international debut at the Wexford Festival in 1995, also appearing that same year at London’s Royal Opera House. Mr. Jurowski was appointed principal guest conductor of the London Philharmonic Orchestra in 2003, and became principal conductor in 2007. He has also served as music director of Glyndebourne Festival Opera (2001-13), principal guest conductor of the Russian National Orchestra (2005-09), principal guest conductor of the Teatro Comunale di Bologna (2000-03), and first kapellmeister of the Berlin Comic Opera (1997-2001). Vladimir Jurowski has appeared on the podium with many of the world’s leading orchestras in both Europe and North America, including the Berlin Philharmonic, Amsterdam’s Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra, Boston Symphony, Chicago Symphony, Zurich Tonhalle Orchestra, Staatskapelle Dresden, and the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent and upcoming engagements include appearances with the New York Philharmonic, San Francisco Symphony, and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Mr. Jurowski’s operatic work has also ranged on both sides of the Atlantic. He made his debut with New York’s Metropolitan Opera in 1999 with Verdi’s Rigoletto, and has since returned for Janáček’s Jenůfa, Tchaikovsky’s Queen of Spades, and Humperdinck’s Hansel and Gretel. He has also conducted Wagner’s Parsifal and Berg’s Wozzeck at the Welsh National Opera, Prokofiev’s War and Peace at the Opera National de Paris, and Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin at Teatro alla Scala Milan, as well as many productions of a wide range of repertoire during his tenure with Glyndebourne. Mr. Jurowski’s extensive discography features albums on BMG, ECM, and Naxos-Marco Polo, as well as the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s and Glyndebourne Opera’s own labels. He has also recorded for PentaTone with the Russian National Orchestra, and can be seen leading works on DVDs released by Glyndebourne, the London Philharmonic Orchestra, and the Metropolitan Opera.

Scherzo fantastique, Opus 3 composed 1907-08 NOT ALL OF

STRAVINSKY born June 17, 1882 Oranienbaum, near St. Petersburg died April 6, 1971 New York

the music that Stravinsky composed before 1910, when the ballet The Firebird broke upon an astonished audience at the Paris Opéra, has survived. But what we have reveals a young composer imitating his seniors and simultaneously foreshadowing great things to come. Until he was twenty, Stravinsky’s chief mentor was his father, a prominent opera singer in St. Petersburg — although Stravinsky père discouraged his son from a career in music. After his father’s death in 1902, he found a sympathetic guide in Rimsky-Korsakov, whose sons were Stravinsky’s friends also. Rimsky-Korsakov was director of the St. Petersburg Conservatory and as dedicated a teacher as Stravinsky was pupil. This was where Stravinsky learned how to apply colorful orchestration and to manipulate brilliant chromatic harmony. For five years, a period of tense political unrest in Russia, Stravinsky kept steadily on with his work, attending Rimsky’s class twice a week and helping his master in turn with orchestration duties when needed. He also got married to his first cousin and had two children. Quite soon he had completed a symphony. It was dedicated to Rimsky-Korsakov, who arranged a private performance. This was followed by two highly-colored orchestral works, Scherzo fantastique and Fireworks. But before either of these were finished, Rimsky-Korsakov died. Both pieces were performed in the same concert, on February 6, 1909, in his memory. The orchestra for the Scherzo fantastique is rich in the higher woodwinds, but without lower brass and timpani. This accounts for the piece’s brittle sonority. Even so, the profusion of angular, chromatic decoration in the winds is already a recognizable Stravinskian trademark. At the same time, the composer is still thinking in regular four-bar phrases, and moving the music on swift ly just as in a standard symphonic scherzo. The equivalent of the Trio portion of a symphony movement is represented by a slow section with echoes of the musical writing from Richard Wagner’s opera Parsifal, followed by a return of the scherzo material itself. Stravinsky later said the piece owed more to Mendelssohn than to Rimsky. A snatch of Rimsky-Korsakov’s bumble-bee music accounts for a ballet titled The Bees, which was staged with Stravinsky’s music at the About the Music

Paris Opéra in 1917, without the composer’s permission. By that time, Stravinsky was world famous, thanks largely to an individual who was present at the concert in 1909 when the Scherzo fantastique was first played — the stage impresario Sergei Diaghilev. The plan for creating and writing The Firebird was worked out almost immediately after this premiere. —Hugh Macdonald © 2014 Hugh Macdonald is Avis H. Blewett Professor Emeritus of Music at Washington University in St. Louis and is a noted authority on French music. He has written books on Beethoven, Berlioz, and Scriabin.

At a Glance Stravinsky composed his Scherzo fantastique between June 1907 and March 1908. The dedicatee, Alexander Siloti, led the first performance on February 6, 1909, in one of his own concerts in St. Petersburg. This work runs 10

minutes in performance. Stravinsky scored it for 3 flutes (second doubling on alto flute and third doubling piccolo) and piccolo, 2 oboes and english horn, 3 clarinets (third doubling E-flat clarinet) and bass clarinet, 2 bassoons and contrabassoon, 4 horns,

concertos have never fared as well as his vocal music. Nor have the two orchestral works that serve a particular purpose — the Sinfonia da Requiem (written to commemorate the 2600th anniversary of the Japanese Empire) and the Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra (which really should be liberated from confinement to children’s concerts and, in addition, be played much more often for grown-ups, who can more fully appreciate its high craft and artistic brilliance). Britten wrote a Double Concerto for violin and viola in 1932, a Piano Concerto in 1938, a Violin Concerto in 1939, and the Cello Symphony in 1963, but none of these have a secure foothold with soloists. Any chance to hear them in live performance should be prized. His own instincts may lie behind this, for during the period in which the Violin Concerto was being written — the early part of 1939 — Britten was also much taken with some poems by Rimbaud and was frequently diverted from the concerto to set “just one more” French poem. The vocal work became Les Illuminations, and the Violin Concerto was duly completed, and while the Illuminations is a secure favorite with singers, the concerto is nonetheless a work of high imagination and superlative craft. The Violin Concerto was first heard in New York in 1940. Britten and his partner, Peter Pears, had left England in May 1939 thinking they might go only to Canada for a short visit. Their journey turned out to be a stay of over three years spent almost entirely in the United States — before Britten felt the inexorable pull of his homeland. The Violin Concerto was completed in September 1939 at St.-Jovite in the mountains of Quebec. Soon thereafter, Britten and Pears were living in Amityville, Long Island, as the guests of Dr. and Mrs. William Mayer, German refugees who actively supported the arts. The concerto was first played by the Spanish violinist Antonio Brosa, who was normally resident in London and with whom Britten had toured a few years earlier. The conductor was John Barbirolli, then, though only briefly, music director of the New York Philharmonic. This was his introduction to Britten’s music, and he followed this successful first performance with another a year later, that of the Sinfonia da Requiem. As in other violin concertos from the same era — by Walton, About the Music

Korngold, Barber, Shostakovich, and others — Britten’s soloist is not let off lightly. Technically-difficult features — including multiple stopping, harmonics, playing at the extreme top end of the instrument’s range, and complex bowing patterns — all are required by Britten in abundance. At the same time, the music has a lovely lyrical quality, best illustrated by the soloist’s opening melody, heard throughout the first movement, along with a striking figure heard first on the timpani alone, perhaps a tacit tribute to the opening of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. A contrasting theme is more spiky, but the overall mood is relaxed, especially when, towards the end of the movement, the strings play the opening lyrical theme in the manner of a swooning serenade. The middle-movement scherzo has a swift , grotesque character not unlike that of many familiar movements by Shostakovich. The contrasting middle section is a nonchalant phrase heard over and over again until the soloist’s wiggling in the stratosphere is taken over by two piccolos while the tuba rises cautiously from the depths — an extraordinary passage. The scherzo material returns and abruptly gives way to a solo cadenza, which introduces material from both scherzo and first movement amid the usual violinistic muscle exercises. At the end of the cadenza the soloist steps deliberately up a high scale, and at the point where the last-movement finale begins, recalls the lyrical theme from the first movement. This should not distract us from the entry of three trombones in unison, who pick up the rising scale and answer it with a scale leading downwards. This simple up-and-down contour is the mortar that binds the last movement together. Britten called it a Passacaglia, although it is not a strict example of this form (which would present an unending and repeated baseline, over which other materials are developed). The scales up and down are easily followed, while the music moves through a variety of keys and textures. At one point, the music has a martial character, but soon afterward the mood becomes very solemn and slow, led by the trombones. There is no brilliant and noisy peroration to this work. Alone among violin concertos, Britten’s concerto concludes in a quiet, very moving hymn, and the question of whether it is to end in the major or the minor is left unresolved until the very last moment. —Hugh Macdonald © 2014

About the Music

At a Glance Britten began work on his VIolin Concerto in November 1938 in England. He completed the score in September 1939 in St.-Jovite, Quebec, Canada, having crossed the Atlantic in May. The concerto was first performed on March 27, 1940, at Carnegie Hall, with the New York Philharmonic under the direction of John Barbirolli and with Antonio Brosa as soloist. Britten made some minor revisions to the score in 1950. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Britten scored it for 3 flutes (second and third doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (snare drum, tenor drum, bass drum, cymbals, triangle, bells, whip, glockenspiel), harp, and strings, plus the solo violin. The Cleveland Orchestra is presenting Britten’s Violin Concerto for the first time with this weekend’s concerts.

Simone Lamsma Dutch violinist Simone Lamsma is acclaimed for her technical artistry and heartfelt musicianship. She is making her Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s concerts. Ms. Lamsma performs with leading orchestras around the world. Her recent and upcoming engagements include debuts with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, San Francisco Symphony, Finnish Radio Symphony, Orchestre National de Belgique, Warsaw Philharmonic, and City of Birmingham Symphony, as well as appearances with the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra and New Zealand Symphony. Her season also features a concert tour of China with the Hong Kong Philharmonic under Jaap van Zweden’s direction. As one of Holland’s most active soloists, Simone enjoys frequent collaborations with all major orchestras in the Netherlands, including the Rotterdam Philharmonic, Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, Amsterdam Sinfonietta, and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Simone Lamsma was awarded the national Dutch VSCD Classical Music Prize among a “New Generation of Musicians” in 2010, awarded by the Association of Dutch Theatres and Concert Halls to artists that have made remarkable and valuable contributions to the Dutch classical music scene. In 2011, she was invited to perform during the Queen’s Day Concert, in the presence of Queen Beatrix of The Netherlands, a concert that was broadcast nationally on Dutch television. Also an active recitalist and chamber musician, Ms. Lamsma has played in recital throughout Europe, including performances during the Dvořák Prague Festival, and in the Sala Cecilia Series in Rio de Janeiro, with Robert Kulek and Valentina Lisitsa as recital partners. Other chamber music projects have included performances in the Verbier Festival at Schloss Elmau, where she performed with musicians Martin Fröst, Lawrence Power, Denis Kozhukin, and Jakob Koranyi. She has also performed in Amsterdam’s IJ-salon with Emanuel Ax and members of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Simone Lamsma began studying the violin at the age of five and moved to the United Kingdom at age eleven to study at the Yehudi Menuhin School with Hu Kun and at the Royal Academy of Music (RAM) in London with Maurice Hasson. In 2011, she was made an associate of the RAM, an honor given to those students who have made distinguished contributions within their field. Simone’s debut recital recording, featuring works by Elgar, was released on Naxos. Her second release features violin concertos by Louis Spohr with Sinfonia Finlandia. Ms. Lamsma plays the “ex Braga” Stradivarius, on generous loan to her by an anonymous benefactor.

Suite from Cinderella, Opus 87 composed 1941-44 IN THE MID-1930S,

by

Sergei

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

Severance Hall 2013-14

after fi fteen years away from Russia, spent mostly in France and the United States, Prokofiev felt a complicated urge to return to his homeland. Just how much he really understood the Soviet system then in place is a vexed question, for even if he knew that the liberal attitude to the arts that characterized the early years of the Revolution was no longer apparent, he could not be blamed for failing to foresee the full extent of Stalin’s repressive rule. By 1936, when Prokofiev’s family finally settled in Moscow, the signs of harsh times ahead were clear, but he kept busy, often with music that took him away in spirit and imagination to more tranquil times. After the ballet Romeo and Juliet, which was completed in 1936, he wrote the film score for Eisenstein’s Alexander Nevsky and also a heroic Soviet opera, Semyon Kotko, which failed to please the Soviet authorities. During World War II, he found a balance between three piano sonatas (Nos. 6-8), which were free of explicit relevance or message, and the huge opera War and Peace, which was clearly designed to raise the patriotic spirit of the people at a time of great suffering. Meanwhile, at the back of his mind was another ballet, like Romeo and Juliet based on an old familiar story. This was to be Cinderella, first suggested to him in 1940 by the ballerina Galina Ulanova, who had danced the role of Juliet. A scenario by Nikolai Volkhov introduced a number of picturesque details into Perrault’s original fairytale, not all of which pleased Prokofiev. The music was written by 1943, the orchestration done in 1944, and the first performance took place after the war in November 1945, at the Bolshoi in Moscow. Meddling hands had inflated the orchestration, so a process of restoration was required when a new version was presented in Leningrad in April 1946. Prokofiev saw Cinderella as a simple Russian girl, but he faced the problem that Soviet aesthetics would not allow the scenes at court to be too enviable. It had to appear that she might be better off all the time in her original home, especially since the ugly sisters (named Skinny and Fatty) are buffoonish rather than cruel. The Prince is not very princely, but an honest child of nature who finds his beloved in the final scene. The suite being performed at this weekend’s Cleveland About the Music

51


Orchestra concerts, chosen by guest conductor Vladimir Jurowski from the score, follows the main action of the story:

Prokofiev saw Cinderella as a simple Russian girl, but he faced the problem that Soviet esthetics would not allow the scenes at court to be too enviable. It had to appear that she might be better off all the time in her original home, especially since the ugly sisters are buffoonish rather than cruel.

52

Act I No. 1, Introduction — Cinderella’s two main themes are heard, neither of them very girlish, the first one marked by melancholy. No. 2, The Shawl Dance (Pas de châle)— The ugly sisters (one high, one low) quarrel over a shawl. Their mother cuts it in two, and they each dance with their own half. They and their parents plod off stage. No. 3, Cinderella — She is melancholy at first, but her skittish side also shows. No. 6, The Sisters’ New Clothes — A comic scene, as the sisters are mussed and fussed by dressers preparing them for the ball. No. 7, The Dancing Lesson — Next they are taught to dance (Fatty is the bassoon, Skinny the oboe). A pair of violins provide the music. The dancing master gets angry when they dance badly. No. 9, Cinderella Dreams of the Ball — Left alone, Cinderella wishes she was going too, and she imagines a dreamy waltz to dance to. No. 11, Fairy Godmother Returns — She had earlier appeared in the guise of a beggar woman. Now she appears, accompanied by Cinderella’s broad theme, and gives back a slipper, which Cinderella had given her earlier. Act II No. 20, Dance of the Courtiers — The dancing at court is formal and rather stiff. No. 26, Mazurka and Entrance of the Prince — A noisy mazurka (not by Chopin!) is being danced when the approach of the Prince is announced by a chorale in the brass. He eventually enters with a heavy step and collapses lumpishly onto his throne. No. 29, Cinderella’s Arrival at the Ball — At first she tinkles like a music box, but then her real presence is warmly set before us. No. 30, Grand Waltz — A longer movement while the whole company dances. No. 31, Promenade — The guests watch Cinderella. The horn About the Music

introduces a new theme. No. 36, Duet of the Prince and Cinderella — A classic “Adagio” for the two principal dancers, with the full orchestra in support. The key is a pure, strong C major. No. 37, Waltz-Coda — The cabaletta to the slower dance is a lilting waltz, speeding up for the close, until cut short by . . . No. 38, Midnight — The clockface lights up, showing two minutes to midnight, and the pendulum swings back and forth. Twelve dwarves leap out as midnight strikes. Everything goes dark. The Prince is left holding a slipper. Act III No. 40, First Galop — The Prince sets off in quest of the slipper’s owner. He meets a beautiful girl (four horns), and unsuccessfully tries the slipper on her foot. He is disappointed. No. 41, Temptation — He comes upon two Spanish beauties (castanets). The slipper fits neither of them. He finds two more (muted violins), still not a fit. A third pair brings back the castanets. No. 42, Second Galop — The Prince continues on his quest. No. 47, The Prince’s Visit — At the home of Cinderella, there is general excitement at the approach of the prince. Trumpets announce him and he jumps in through the window. Skinny tries on the slipper, then Fatty, then the stepmother. All in vain! Ethereal chords are heard, caused by the appearance of the matching slipper, dropped from Cinderella’s bosom as she bows to the Prince. No. 48, The Prince Finds Cinderella — An “Adagio passionato.” The fairy godmother appears (harp). No. 50, Amoroso — Cinderella’s theme is heard again in a glorious peroration for the happy ending. —Hugh Macdonald © 2014

About the Music

At a Glance Prokofiev composed his ballet score for Cinderella between 1942 and 1945. The original suggestion came from dancer Galina Ulanova; the scenario of scenes was devised by Nikolai Volkhov. The ballet was premiered in November 1945 at the Bolshoi Theater in Moscow. Prokofiev revised the score (including restoring some of his original orchestrations that had been altered by the Bolshoi’s music staff ) prior to publication in 1946. This suite of music from Cinderella runs about 60 minutes in performance (the entire score runs just over two hours). Prokofiev scored the ballet for 2 flutes, piccolo, 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (side drum, castanets, maracas, wood block), harp, piano, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra has presented music from Cinderella on a variety of education concerts, and also on two previous weekends of subscription concerts at Severance Hall, in 1977 with guest conductor Andrew Davis and again in 1983 with Vladimir Ashkenazy.

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 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 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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Jaap van Zweden, conductor Renaud Capuçon, violin

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Loras John Schissel, conductor

Join thousands of your neighbors, family, and friends for a very special evening celebrating Independence Day. Each summer since 1990, The Cleveland Orchestra has presented a free concert in downtown Cleveland. This year, the Orchestra celebrates our nation’s founding with a spectacular concert, ending with Tchaikovsky’s “1812” Overture and fireworks. Brought to you by Cuyahoga Arts & Culture. Pre-concert activities begin at 5:00 p.m. The concert begins at 9:00 p.m. Admission is free, no tickets are required.

DVOŘÁK’S NEW WORLD

The 2014 Blossom Music Festival kicks off with an evening of great classics, beginning with Tchaikovsky’s sparkling Capricio Italien. Guest soloist Renaud Capuçon makes his debut with the masterful rhythms and harmonies of Sibelius’s Violin Concerto — which one critic famously wrote included the light and lumbering footsteps of dancing polar bears. Guest conductor Jaap van Zweden concludes the evening with one of the most beloved symphonies, Dvořák’s great postcard home “From the New World,” filled with the newfound wonder and energy of America in the Golden Age. Sponsor: Blossom Women’s Committee
