Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director January 2015 At our Annual Meeting last month, we announced the news that The Cleveland Orchestra achieved a budget surplus for the year ended June 30, 2014, our third consecutive year of positive financial news. These results add to an ongoing record of success that is propelling this institution forward — with ever-greater artistic achievements, growing community service, strong ticket sales, and unprecedented philanthropic support. For all of these positive trends, we owe much to the leadership and generosity of our Board of Trustees, led by President Dennis W. LaBarre. I invite you to read Dennis’s Annual Report message beginning on page 25 of this book, in which he further details the achievements and changes for an exciting future for the Orchestra here in Northeast Ohio. Much of what The Cleveland Orchestra does today reflects an overall institutional transformation, including significant changes in the composition of our audience. It’s a fact in our changing world that subscription rates are in decline for most leisure-time pursuits, and The Cleveland Orchestra is not immune to this trend. But in recent years we have succeeded in attracting new and younger audiences to fill the gap. Back in the mid-1980s, our weekly Severance Hall concert programs were virtually sold out on a subscription basis, with only a handful of the audience attending concerts by purchasing individual tickets. And at that time, subscribers attended very frequently — each of our 7,000 or so subscriber households purchased an average of 20 tickets annually. Fast forward almost 30 years, and the 2013-14 season tells a very different — but no less vital — story. Last season, just 51% of tickets for our weekly Severance Hall concerts were purchased by subscribers, but nearly as many attended through individual ticket purchases, including thousands of young people. In all, last season’s Severance Hall concerts attracted concertgoers from a total of over 23,000 households! Today, we are playing more music for more people than ever before. The decline of ticket subscriptions in our society could have spelled an uncertain future for The Cleveland Orchestra. But thanks to the efforts and dedication of everyone in the Orchestra family, we are achieving success in transforming our programming and our audience. We are developing an audience for the future — of more diverse and younger attendees. And we are working to give you, our valued patrons, the range of choice that today’s patrons demand. We have made subscriptions more flexible, including “build your own” packages offered this season. And we are planning new options to offer a membership model for concert attendance, beginning with our new group for young professionals, The Circle. Whether you count yourself among the family of dedicated subscribers or are part of our extended family of individual concertgoers, our goal remains to enable you to experience the magnificent power of great orchestral music, pure and simple. Thank you and best wishes for a wonderful and music-filled 2015!

The Cleveland Orchestra’s Annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert, held this year for the 35th time, fills the stage at Severance Hall with performers — featuring the volunteer Celebration Chorus assembled and prepared especially for this event each January.

of its founding in 2018, The Cleveland Orchestra is undergoing a new transformation and renaissance. Universallyacknowledged among the best ensembles on the planet, its musicians, staff, board of directors, volunteers, and hometown are working together on a set of enhanced goals for the 21st century — to develop the youngest audience of any orchestra, to renew its focus on fully serving the communities where it performs through engagement and education, to continue its legendary command of musical excellence, and to move forward into the Orchestra’s next century with a strong commitment to adventuresome programming and new music. The Cleveland Orchestra divides its time each year across concert seasons at home in Cleveland’s Severance Hall and each summer at Blossom Music Center. Additional portions of the year are devoted to touring and to a series of innovative and intensive performance residencies. These include an annual set of concerts and education programs and partnerships in Florida, a recurring residency at Vienna’s Musikverein, and regular appearances at Switzerland’s LuAS IT NEARS THE CENTENNIAL

cerne Festival, at New York’s Lincoln Center Festival, and at Indiana University. Musical Excellence. Under the leadership of Franz Welser-Möst, now in his thirteenth season as the ensemble’s music director, The Cleveland Orchestra is acknowledged among the world’s handful of best orchestras. Its performances of standard repertoire and new works are unrivalled at home in Ohio, in residencies around the globe, on tour across North America and Europe, and through recordings, telecasts, and radio and internet broadcasts. Its longstanding championship of new composers and commissioning of new works helps audiences understand music as a living language that grows and evolves with each new generation. Recent performances with Baroque specialists, recording projects with internationally-renowned soloists, fruitful re-examinations and juxtapositions of the standard repertoire, and acclaimed collaborations in 20th and 21st century masterworks together enable The Cleveland Orchestra the ability to give musical performances second to none in the world. Serving the Community. Programs for students and community engagement activities have long been part of the Orchestra’s commitment to serving Cleveland and surrounding communities, and have more recently been extended to its touring and residencies. All are designed to connect people to music in the concert hall, in classrooms, and in everyday lives. Recent seasons have seen the launch of a unique “At Home” neighborhood residency program, designed to bring the Orchestra and citizens together in new ways. Additionally, a new Make Music! initiative is taking shape, championed by Franz Welser-Möst in advocacy for the benefits of direct participation in making music for people of all ages. Future Audiences. Standing on the shoulders of ninety years of presenting quality music education programs, the Orchestra made national and international headlines through the creation of its Center for Future Audiences in 2010. Established with a significant endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation, the Center is designed to provide ongoing funding for the Orchestra’s continuing work to develop interest in classical music among young people. The flagship “Under 18s Free” program has seen unparalleled success in increasing attendance and interest, and was recently extended to the Orchestra’s concerts in Miami. Innovative Programming. The Cleveland Orchestra was among the first American orchestras heard on a regular series of radio broadcasts, and its Severance Hall home was one of the first concert halls in the world built with recording and broadcasting capabilities. Today, Cleveland Orchestra concerts are presented in a variety of formats for a variety of audiences — including a popular Fridays@7 series (mixing onstage symphonic works with post-concert world music performances), film scores performed live by the Orchestra, collaborations with pop and jazz singers, ballet and opera presentations, and standard repertoire juxtaposed in meaningful contexts with new and older works.

given the Orchestra an unequaled opportunity to explore music as a universal language of communication and understanding. Origins and Evolution. 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, 193343; 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. Today, concert performances, community presentations, touring residencies, broadcasts, and recordings provide access to the Orchestra’s acclaimed artistry to an enthusiastic, generous, and broad constituency around the world.

Franz Welser-Möst leads a concert at John Adams High School. Through such In-School Performances and Education Concerts at Severance Hall, The Cleveland Orchestra has introduced more than 4 million young people to symphonic music over the past nine decades.

TRAGIC OPERA IN ONE ACT

Libretto by JOSEPH GREGOR GREGO Music by RICHARD STRAUSS

SEVERANCE HALL

MAY 27 Wednesday MAY 30 Saturday

Franz Welser-Möst leads The Cleveland Orchestra in performances of Richard Strauss’s captivating opera about Daphne, a young woman who must choose between the love of men and her love for nature. Composed during the politically perilous period after the Nazis came to power and first performed in 1938, the opera had deep personal significance to the composer. Strauss knew that the myth of Daphne was the subject of the very first opera ever composed — and his own version can be viewed as a guarded demand for creative freedom in the face of political and worldly hindrances. Sung in German with projected English supertitles. Sponsored by Litigation Management, Inc.

Apollo and Daphne, marble statue by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, 1625.

Franz Welser-Möst Music Director Kelvin Smith Family Endowed Chair The Cleveland Orchestra

marks Franz Welser-Möst’s thirteenth year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with the future of this acclaimed partnership now extending into the next decade. Under his direction, the Orchestra is hailed for its continuing artistic excellence, is broadening and enhancing its community programming at home in Northeast Ohio, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. With a commitment to music education and the Northeast Ohio community, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with performances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. He has championed new programs, such as a community-focused Make Music! initiative and a series of “At Home” neighborhood residencies designed to bring the Orchestra and citizens together in new ways. Under Mr. Welser-Möst’s leadership, The Cleveland Orchestra has established a recurring biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall and appears regularly at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival. Together, they have also 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, an annual multi-week Cleveland Orchestra residency in Florida was inaugurated in 2007 and an ongoing relationship with New York’s Lincoln Center Festival began in 2011. To the start of this season, The Cleveland Orchestra has performed fourteen world and fifteen United States premieres under Franz Welser-Möst’s direction. In partnership with the Lucerne Festival, he and the Orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, and Matthias Pintscher. 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 annual opera performances during his tenure 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 Mozart-Da Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012 and in May 2014 led an innovative madeP H OTO BY S ATO S H I AOYAG I

for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen at Severance Hall. They present performances of Richard Strauss’s Daphne in May 2015. As a guest conductor, Mr. Welser-Möst enjoys a close and productive relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include a critically-acclaimed production of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier at the 2014 Salzburg Festival as well as appearances at New York’s Carnegie Hall, at the Lucerne Festival, and in concert at La Scala Milan. During the 2014-15 season, he returns to Europe for a tour of Scandinavia with the Philharmonic, and will also lead them in a new production of Beethoven’s Fidelio at Salzburg in 2015. He led the Philharmonic’s celebrated annual New Year’s Day concert in 2011 and 2013, viewed by tens of millions as telecast in seventy countries worldwide. From 2010 to 2014, Franz Welser-Möst served as general music director of the Vienna State Opera. His partnership with the company included an acclaimed new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, and critically-praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac, Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead, Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West, and Verdi’s Don Carlo, as well as performances of a wide range of other operas, particularly of works by Wagner and Richard Strauss, including Tristan and Isolde and Parsifal, and Der Rosenkavalier and Ariadne auf Naxos. Prior to his years with the Vienna State Opera, Mr. Welser-Möst led the Zurich Opera across a decade-long tenure, leading more than forty new productions and culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08). Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including a 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, and is in the midst of a new project recording major works by Brahms. With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and an all-Wagner album. 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 the Vienna Philharmonic’s “Ring of Honor” for his longstanding personal and artistic relationship with the ensemble, as well as 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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA TRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

From the President This message from Musical Arts Association president Dennis W. LaBarre is excerpted and condensed from the Association’s recently published Annual Report. Here, Mr. LaBarre discusses the continuing progress that The Cleveland Orchestra is making in implementing changes for a stronger future, as an institution devoted to the citizens of Northeast Ohio who created it and have sustained it. The complete Annual Report can be read online at clevelandorchestra.com by clicking on “Publications” in the “News & Updates” section. A S I L O O K B A C K O V E R the past season, I am struck by the

enormous transformations this institution has achieved. Some of these changes began almost a decade ago, and continued with new resolve and discipline through economic uncertainty in recent years. Now we are focused on continued progress and innovation as we plan for our Centennial and beyond. With the support and enthusiasm of our community, we are creating an even stronger Cleveland Orchestra — one capable of serving Northeast Ohio to the utmost, innovative in extending our global artistic brand through established residency programs in Miami and Europe, flexible enough to adapt to future twists in the road, and renowned as ever for musical excellence, for music education and participation, for young audiences, for community service, and as an enduring symbol of this community’s spirit and pride. Our progress toward true financial health is reflected in the financial achievements of the past year. For the third consecutive year, we have achieved a balanced budget — through increased ticket revenues, increased donations and support, and prudent cost control. For 2013-14, in fact, with the dedicated efforts of everyone involved, we recorded a bottom line surplus of $940,000 beyond our balanced budget goal.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

In concert with these annual financial achievements — including a record $10.6 million in Annual Fund support — the Sound for the Centennial Campaign’s endowment component has also moved forward. Campaign efforts have to date achieved $62 million in cash and pledges to the endowment, and $50 million in legacy commitments. The endowment now stands at $173 million — up from a low of $97 million following the financial crisis in 2008. Now we must focus on the Campaign’s successful completion by 2018, expanding the endowment to provide a greater contribution to our operating budget and building ever stronger annual support for specific artistic and community initiatives.

The Orchestra’s goal of building the youngest audience of any orchestra is becoming reality. Our new summer concert series, Summers@Severance, was launched in August 2014 to great success, with nearly half of the audience attending a Cleveland Orchestra concert for the first time. The success of this and other audience development CONTINUES

Severance Hall 2014-15

From the President

THE CLEVELAND ORC

This financial success is part of a larger, ongoing transformation in spirit. Franz Welser-Möst, whose tenure as Music Director now extends through 2022, has led a comprehensive set of new initiatives for the Orchestra. He is a driver of innovation, both artistic and programmatic. He has spotlighted the Orchestra’s role as a key leader in music education, and led us toward greater community engagement. Above all, he is the standard bearer for the Orchestra’s renowned musical excellence.

programs echoed the achievements of the Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences and the many programs it supports, which have attracted well over 100,000 young people to Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom in just three years. Through the newest Center-funded program, The Circle, launched in January 2014, we are developing support from a new generation of Northeast Ohio’s young-professional leaders.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

Today, more than ever, we understand that we must support our schools, embrace our civic leadership role, increase access to orchestral music for all, and partner with other community and cultural organizations to sustain the city whose name we so proudly carry throughout the world. The Orchestra’s education programs reach over 60,000 students of all ages each year as part of its ongoing goal to serve as an indispensible education and community resource. The Orchestra’s second annual “At Home” neighborhood residency was whole-heartedly embraced by the citizens and students of Lakewood, with over thirty-five events culminating in a soldout free community concert led by Franz Welser-Möst, streamed live on the internet, and recorded for broadcast by our partner WVIZ/ideastream.

CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA THE CLEVELAND ORCHE

Transformation is also taking place behind the scenes, in how we do business, and in upgrading our infrastructure and resources. We have established specialized task forces to explore new methods of serving expanded and current audiences in better ways — from improving the experience of attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts, to investigating improvements in communicating with our patrons and the longterm goal of enabling digital access to our rich store of recordings and history. Our progress over the past year is the result of focus, enthusiasm, and dedication from the entire Cleveland Orchestra family. I am grateful to all those who have played a role in this integrated, far-reaching effort at transforming what The Cleveland Orchestra means to our region. In summary, the past season was a year of programmatic innovation, of financial strength, of increasing community service. A time of transition and continuity. And, as always, of extraordinary artistic excellence. It has been a perfect balance of the traditions that have made us strong for nearly a century and the transformation that will ensure our future success. The Cleveland Orchestra is now poised to make the leap from recent steady growth to longterm financial strength. Doing so will allow us the freedom to innovate and to reach new heights of musical and institutional excellence, all for the benefit of everyone in Northeast Ohio. Now is the time to help propel the Orchestra into a future built on a sound financial foundation, a future of excellence, a future of service to this community. Together, we can ensure that The Cleveland Orchestra remains a pillar of music and art, education and community pride into the decades ahead.

numbers for the year — including a record $10.6 million in Annual Fund support. He highlights the Orchestra’s Sound for the Centennial Campaign, with efforts to date having achieved $62 million in cash and pledges to the endowment, and $50 million in legacy commitments. The endowment today stands at $172 million — up from a low of $97 million following the financial crisis in 2008.  Building on this success and strong vote of support from Northeast Ohio, the Trustees and staff will now focus on the Campaign’s successful completion by 2018.  “Expanding the endowment to provide a greater contribution to operating budget will provide the Orchestra with the financial strength to remain secure during future difficult economic cycles,” LaBarre said at the Annual Meeting.  “Once this is achieved, we can focus our fundraising efforts on an ever stronger Annual Fund and special fundraising for specific artistic and community initiatives.” “The achievements of the past year were considerable,” said Hanson in his remarks.  “The annual financial results reinforce the success of recent years, while artistically the Orchestra reached new heights. From coffee shops to cathedrals, from Blossom to Severance Hall, over the past year we continued our dedication to community engagement.  Our second annual neighborhood residency, titled ‘At Home in Lakewood, Ohio,’ served to strengthen the bond between The Cleveland Orchestra and the citizens of Northeast Ohio. Concert attendance by young people under age 25 surged to over 41,000 in the past year, with young people now making up over 20% of the audience for classical concerts at Severance Hall, taking us well on our way toward securing the youngest audience of any orchestra.”

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA

The audited financial results of The Cleveland Orchestra’s 2013-14 fiscal year were reported at the Annual Meeting of the Musical Arts Association on Tuesday evening, December 2. President of the Board of Trustees, Dennis W. LaBarre, announced a year-end budgetary surplus to the assembled Association members at the meeting in Severance Hall, the Orchestra’s home concert hall since 1931. The Musical Arts Association is the non-profit organization that owns and operates The Cleveland Orchestra, Severance Hall, and Blossom Music Center. Financial achievements of the past year included the third consecutive balanced annual budget — through increased ticket revenues, increased contributions, and ongoing cost control. At year end, the Orchestra’s 2013-14 revenues of $49.6 million exceeded expenses of $48.7 million.   This was achieved with year-over-year revenues increasing 3% from 2012-13, while expense growth was held at just 1.5% over the previous year. This is the third consecutive year of balanced operating results, each made possible by special fundraising secured to support operations during a campaign to increase the endowment and the Orchestra’s long-term financial strength. Advance copies of the Orchestra’s published Annual Report were distributed at the meeting and will be made available to all Musical Arts Association members in the coming weeks. The report features year-end messages from LaBarre and Executive Director Gary Hanson, as well as a financial summary and an overview of the year’s concert and community activities. The report highlights the thousands of individual, corporate, and foundation donors, plus contributing government agencies, all of whom made the positive outcome possible through their support.

Soldout MLK Celebration Concert on January 18 to be broadcast live on radio

The Cleveland Orchestra welcomes the first of three recent hires to its ranks for concerts January 8-10. Gareth Thomas joins the Orchestra as second bassoon in January 2015. He most recently served as principal bassoon of the Toledo Symphony Orchestra 2010-14. He received a bachelor of music degree with academic honors from the Cleveland Institute of Music in 2009 and a master of music degree from Northwestern University in 2010. His teachers have included John Clouser, principal bassoon of The Cleveland Orchestra, and Christopher Millard, principal bassoon of the National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa. Gareth Thomas received the George F. Goslee Prize in bassoon at CIM and first prize at the 2006 National Arts Centre Orchestra Bursary Competition. He has appeared as soloist with the Toledo Symphony Orchestra and the National Arts Centre Orchestra, and has participated in the Pacific Music Festival and the Sarasota Music Festival.

Although tickets for the Orchestra’s annual Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Concert were soldout within minutes of going “on sale” on January 2, the concert will be shared by thousands more through live radio broadcast on radio stations WCLV (104.9 FM) and WCPN (90.3 FM). The concert on Sunday evening, January 18, is The Cleveland Orchestra’s 35th annual concert celebrating the spirit of Dr. King’s life, leadership, and vision in music, song, and community service recognition. The concert once again features the Martin Luther King Jr. Celebration Chorus of volunteer singers from across Northeast Ohio. Fourteen-yearold cellist Sterling Elliott also performs with the Orchestra. Admission to the concert is free, but tickets are required — and all tickets were soldout within minutes of becoming available on Friday, January 2, at 9 a.m.

Two Endowed Chairs named to honor generous legacy gifts created by Orchestra patrons Two new chairs of The Cleveland Orchestra were named in 2014 in recognition of generous planned estate gifts created by longtime Orchestra patrons. The Robert B. Benyo Endowed Horn Chair has been added to the roster and is currently held by section horn player Jesse McCormick, while the Thomas J. and Judith Fay Gruber Endowed Cello Chair is held by cellist Tanya Ell. The chairs are named in perpetuity, and will help support the Orchestra’s annual costs, including musician salaries. As a prominent Northeast Ohio physician, Dr. Robert Benyo appreciated The Cleveland Orchestra’s precision and clarity of sound. Having subscribed and supported The Cleveland Orchestra for over thirty years, Dr. Benyo remembered the Orchestra in his estate to support and help perpetuate the ensemble’s highest standards of performing excellence. Judith and Tom Gruber have long enjoyed experiencing the Orchestra at Severance Hall. Judith, a member of the Blossom Women’s Committee, supports the efforts of the Orchestra through her tireless volunteerism. In creating plans for their legacy gift, Judith and Tom also desired to support and promote the continuing superior artistry of the Orchestra’s musicians and ensemble playing. Both of these gifts join together with hundreds of other endowment gifts to support The Cleveland Orchestra 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.

SU-DO-KU

by Dolores Louise MacArthur

Just as music is built from the notes of a scale, creating millions of possible patterns, Su-do-ku puzzles are devised from the simple building blocks of the numbers 1- 9. With origins that include a French newspaper puzzle from before World War One, and popularized from Japan, Su-do-ku puzzles require no arithmetic skills — only the logic of inventory and elimination.

Instructions

Fill in the empty squares so that each row, each column, and each outlined 3x3 square inside the larger 9x9 puzzle each contain all the numbers from 1 through 9. (The numbers shown in black boxes should be treated the same as all other numbers; they are different for visual variety only.)

INTRODUCING THE CONCERT

Godly Symphony & Rustic Ballet THIS WEEK’S CONCERTS

A Romantic portrayal of the innocent love of Daphnis and Chloé, lithograph by Jean-Nicolas Laugier, 1817

present two works that qualify as “classical” in several different ways. Mozart’s final symphony, from 1788, in C major, has long been nicknamed the “Jupiter” Symphony. Although the name was not from Mozart, it well captures the classical proportions and god-like clarity of this mature work. Its four movements epitomize everything that this great composer stood for and understood of orchestral music-making. And its great finale fugue is . . . truly divine. After intermission comes the music for Maurice Ravel’s ballet Daphnis and Chloé, premiered in 1912 and depicting a classic Greek legend of tender love, daring adventures, and pastoral scenery. In this, the longest piece that Ravel ever wrote, the composer weaves a rhapsodic tapestry infused with his usual touches of imaginative and “just right” orchestration (including a wordless chorus). Not to be missed is one of the best sunrises ever composed. These two works are clearly from different soundworlds, eras, and realms — and from a variety of differing musical traditions (German vs. French, intellect vs. emotion, function vs. form, concert hall vs. ballet). Yet together they provide a clear delineation of the joys that great orchestral music can bring to our ears (and minds). Take the pleasures as you can. —Eric Sellen

of speculation over the years as to precisely what went wrong in Mozart’s life between 1785, the apex of his “golden years,” and the summer of 1788, when the last three symphonies were written. By 1788, the concert series where Mozart had presented his great piano concertos had been discontinued for a variety of reasons. Mozart had lost the audience support he had previously enjoyed. In 1786-87, he had an immense success in Prague with his operas The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni (the latter was written specifically for that city), but back home in Vienna, things were going downhill financially. Mozart’s appointment to the relatively minor position of “Kammer-Kompositeur” at the imperial court did little to improve matters. Mozart’s family life was also extremely difficult. Four of his children died in infancy, three of them between 1786 and 1788. (This left Mozart and his wife, Constanze, with only one surviving child, Karl Thomas, born in 1784; a second son, Franz Xaver Wolfgang, who would become a composer, was born in 1791, the last year of Mozart’s life.) Among the further reasons that may have contributed to the deterioration of Mozart’s situation, researchers have cited the composer’s gambling habit, household mismanagement by Constanze, and a general tendency of the Mozarts to live beyond their means. What is certain is that during the summer of 1788 Mozart started writing heart-rending letters to his friend and fellow Freemason, Michael Puchberg, imploring him for rather large sums of money. In one of these, he was asking Puchberg for “a hundred gulden until next week, when my concerts in the Casino are to begin.” Since the letter was written at the time Mozart was working on what would prove to be his last three symphonies, there is reason to believe that he intended them for concerts “in the Casino.” We don’t know exactly where “the Casino” was, but Mozart had previously played some of his piano concertos there. The performances of Symphonies Nos. 39-41 may or may not have taken place in the fall of 1788. Because there are no known records of performances, it used to be believed that these symphonies were never heard in concert during the composer’s About the Music

At a Glance Mozart finished the score of this work, his last completed symphony, on August 10, 1788. The location and date of its first performance are not known. The nickname “Jupiter” (used largely in English-speaking countries) most likely comes from Johann Peter Salomon (17451815), the German-born violinist and impresario who brought Haydn to London (and wanted to invite Mozart as well). This symphony runs about 35 minutes in performance. Mozart scored it for flute, 2 oboes, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony during the 1922-23 season under founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been performed quite frequently since then, most recently in 2013 in Miami and in 2012 at Blossom, both times conducted by James Feddeck, and in 2010 at Severance Hall led by Hans Graf. The Cleveland Orchestra recorded this symphony in 1955 (mono) and again in 1963 (stereo) with George Szell, and in 1990 with Christoph von Dohnányi.

lifetime. Recently, experts have become more careful and we no longer rule out a contemporary performance on the basis of missing evidence. There were in fact several opportunities for Mozart to present these symphonies both in Vienna and in Germany, where he journeyed in 1789 and again in 1790. We may not know when or where the first performance took place, but one thing is certain: by the early 1800s the C-major symphony, the last of the three, was universally recognized as one of the greatest ever composed. It came to be known as the “Jupiter,” a nickname probably invented by Johann Peter Salomon, the famous London impresario. As musicologist Elaine Sisman writes in a book devoted to this work, most responses ranged “ from admiring to adulatory, a gamut from A to A.” (For Mozart, who died in 1791, the praise unfortunately came too late.) THE MUSIC

The most widely admired aspect of the work, besides its magnificent proportions and general mood of majestic serenity, was, and still is, the fugal finale — in Germany, the symphony is known under the nickname mit der Schlussfuge (“with the final fugue”). The fact that the finale should be the crown of the entire work is in itself unusual since most earlier symphonies placed the greatest emphasis on the opening movement. But the symphony is revolutionary in more ways than we often realize — all four movements significantly transcend the traditional movement types from which they originated. In his seminal book on Mozart’s symphonies, Neal Zaslaw invokes the world of opera for an explanation of the “Jupiter” Symphony’s first movement. In Zaslaw’s interpretation, the relationship between the opening fanfares and the closing theme is like that between a serious operatic character and a figure from comic opera. Throughout the movement, Mozart moves between “high-brow” and popular musical styles with astonishing ease and without the slightest incongruity. Shortly after a great dramatic outburst (with a suspenseful general rest and an unexpected foray into the minor mode), we hear a beguilingly simple folk-like closing theme. Mozart borrowed this theme from an aria for bass that he had written just a few months earlier, in May 1788. The words were possibly by Lorenzo Da Ponte, with whom Mozart collaborated on three of his greatest operas. The aria “Un bacio di mano” (“A Hand-Kiss”), About the Music

The Cleveland Orchestra


K541, was intended as an extra number for a comic opera by Pasquale Anfossi (1727-1797). The text of the aria passage Mozart used in the “Jupiter” Symphony runs as follows: “Voi siete un po’ tondo, mio caro Pompeo, le usanze del mondo andate a studiar” (“You are a bit naïve, my dear Pompeo, go study the ways of the world”). In the development section, this theme becomes the starting point for a whole series of transformations, as if the simple melody were indeed “studying the ways of the world.” The second-movement Andante cantabile opens with muted strings playing a simple musical question-and-answer phrase. We will hear the first of these phrases (the question part) again, but not the second part, which will become completely submerged under a cascade of thirty-second notes. In fact, after the simple opening, Mozart soon piles up harmonic and rhythmic complexities in what is one of his most personal and profound musical statements. Then the complexities disappear, and the Andante ends as simply and reassuringly as it began. The third-movement minuet starts with another questionand-answer; however, this time the structure remains simple throughout. Mozart plays a fascinating game in the trio, which begins with a closing gesture, in a move that has been described as “putting the cart before the horse.” Within only a few measures, this closing gesture undergoes an astonishing number of changes as it is inverted, transposed, and harmonized in different ways. For a moment, it is even made to anticipate the four-note motif of the finale to follow. It then returns in its original form, leading into the recapitulation of the minuet. The celebrated four-note motif of the fourth-movement finale was commonplace in 18th-century contrapuntal studies, probably derived from the Gregorian hymn Lucis creator (“The Creator of Light”). It may be found in several of Mozart’s earlier works, from as early as his Symphony No. 1 written at the age of eight, or the “Credo” movement of his Missa brevis in F major (K192), written ten years later. In the “Jupiter” Symphony, Mozart used this motif to create a movement whose perfection may be part of the reason why Mozart did not write another symphony in the remaining three years of his life. The four-note motif is first presented in a simple form by the first violins, accompanied only by the seconds. A fugal elaboration soon begins, and the motif is joined by several Severance Hall 2014-15

About the Music

We don’t know what went wrong in Mozart’s life between 1785, the apex of his “golden years,” and the summer of 1788, when the last three symphonies were written. Mozart had lost the audience support he had previously enjoyed — and his personal economic situation was increasingly precarious.

counter-subjects. At one point, no fewer than five different motifs are heard simultaneously. To make matters even more complicated, Mozart embedded his fugue within a sonata structure. This means that there are several fugal sections, arranged in an order that follows the usual exposition-developmentrecapitulation scheme of sonata form. In other words, two worlds meet in this magnificent finale: the strict contrapuntal technique inherited from the Baroque and the freer, “galant” idiom of the Classical era. The seamless synthesis of those two worlds was an achievement unmatched even by Mozart. Music has never been closer to what 18th-century philosophers called the “sublime,” a term defining an experience at once powerful, uplifting, and transcendent. It is, no doubt, this sublime quality that invited the association with Jupiter, the chief of the gods in Roman mythology. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

Daphnis and Chloé (complete ballet music) composed 1909-1912 M AU R I C E R AV E L

RAVEL born March 7, 1875

Ciboure, Basses-Pyrénées died December 28, 1937 Paris

Severance Hall 2014-15

came into contact with Sergei Diaghilev soon after the brilliant Russian impresario, founder of the “Russian Ballet” or Ballets Russes, made his Paris debut in 1908. As early as the next year, 1909, Diaghilev commissioned a ballet score from Ravel for his company. It was decided early on that the ballet would be based on the story of Daphnis and Chloé, a pastoral romance written by the Greek author Longus in the 3rd century A.D. The fable was known in France through a 16thcentury translation by Jacques Amyot. The romance tells about the awakening of love between two orphaned young people, a shepherd and shepherdess who are tending their herds together. After various adventures, amorous rivalries, abductions by pirates, and other suitably dramatic intrigues, it turns out that both are children of aristocratic families — and so they have a grand wedding and are prepared to live happily ever after. The composition and orchestration of Daphnis and Chloé took Ravel a full three years, and the music for this ballet remained his most extensive work, both in terms of length and the size of the orchestra. By the time the long-awaited score was completed, the fast-moving Diaghilev had initiated so many new projects that Ravel’s effort seemed to be overshadowed by other productions, including a very controversial adaptation of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, which opened just two weeks before Daphnis and Chloé. Stravinsky’s The Firebird and Pétrouchka had received their premieres in 1910 and 1911, respectively; Debussy’s Jeux [Games] and Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring were already in the making. Even the Greek topic had been stolen from Ravel with the ballet Narcisse — choreographed, like Daphnis, by Michel Fokine and with Vaslav Nijinsky in the title role, premiered in 1911 with music by Nikolai Tcherepnin. Daphnis and Chloé was premiered on June 8, 1912, two days before the end of the season, and thus presented only twice before the company went on summer break. The ballet caused Ravel additional grief in 1914, when Diaghilev’s troupe gave performances at London’s Drury Lane Theater. Diaghilev wanted to cut costs and dispense with the wordless chorus that Ravel had included in the score — and it is true that the composer had made a practical version without chorus, but this was intended for minor venues only.

was infuriated that Diaghilev should consider London a minor venue and protested angrily in an open letter. The matter was resolved when Diaghilev signed a written agreement stipulating the use of the chorus, but this did not help to establish Daphnis and Chloé in the ballet repertoire. Ravel’s music was much more successful in the concert hall, especially in the form of the two suites the composer extracted from the score. The first suite was identical to the second part of the three-part ballet, the second suite to the last part. The latter has become one of Ravel’s most popular works, while the remainder of the ballet is probably less known than it deserves to be — although recordings have perhaps made up for some of the neglect. THE MUSIC

Ravel knew exactly why the chorus was indispensable in the soundscape of this ballet. The voices provide a special aural coloring that blends with the orchestra while at the same time standing out from the orchestral texture. In addition, few regular instruments capture the dream-like sensuality of this story better than the human voice. The chorus appears right at the beginning, singing soft ly (in staged performances, behind the scene) as the flute and horn solos introduce two of the ballet’s main themes. They sing with mouths open, then with mouths closed, creating two alternating sound characters whose differences become subtle orchestrational devices similar to the presence or absence of mutes on stringed instruments. The ballet begins with a pastoral idyll that shows the world of Daphnis and Chloé in its pristine, undisturbed state as the shepherds and shepherdesses pay tribute to the nymphs in a religious dance. Like every idyll, this one is soon to be disrupted; very gently and harmlessly at first, with the innocent games of love and jealousy involving Dorcon and, later, Lyceion (see synopsis of the action, beginning on page 53). By the end of the section, a far more serious danger appears with the pirates who seize and carry off Chloé. It is a cycle of tensions and relaxations, delineated with great precision by Ravel’s music. For the dance contest between Dorcon and Daphnis, Ravel wrote some deliciously heavy-footed music, with primitive rhythms and a great deal of percussion to suit the coarse cowherd Dorcon in utter contrast to the light and graceful dance of Daphnis, who moves in a more subtle rhythm and accompanied mostly Severance Hall 2014-15

by harps and woodwinds. The laughter greeting Dorcon’s performance is made palpable by the energetic staccato playing in the woodwinds and brass. The embrace of Daphnis and Chloé is marked by a repeat of the principal theme on strings playing in a high register. The Lyceion episode mixes gentle eroticism with a touch of irony, after which the sudden irruption of the pirates makes a stunning contrast. The dance of the three nymphs, who lead Daphnis to the god Pan to enlist his help, is introduced by a cadenza shared by the flute, the horn, and the clarinet. (The flute in particular plays a prominent role throughout the ballet, making it a special showpiece for the first flutist.) At the end of the slow and mysterious dance, there is a moment of complete silence, before Pan appears to his worshippers to the sound of an unaccompanied chorus. In the next scene, we are in the camp of the pirates who are performing an animated and rough war dance; the rhythm of its first section recalls Dorcon’s grotesque dance from the previous tableau. The dance gets faster and wilder as it goes on, culminating in a gigantic crescendo enhanced by the fierce war cries of the male singers. Chloé’s entrance and her dance of supplication receive the lyrical, expressive music that has characterized the couple of lovers from the start. The warlike music temporarily returns when Bryaxis, the chief of the pirates, carries Chloé off. Then, suddenly, Pan’s magic begins to work, announced by the mysterious sounds of trembling tremolos and sliding glissandos in the harps and strings. At the fortissimo climax, the menacing shadow of the god appears and defeats all the evil forces. This is the point where the familiar music of the Second Suite begins with its wonderful representation of sunrise. Against a texture of lush figurations in flutes, clarinets, harps, and celesta, the basses and cellos begin a majestic tune, gradually taken over by violas and violins. The first shepherd crossing the stage is portrayed by the piccolo, the second by the equally high-pitched E-flat clarinet (both are on the stage in the original ballet version). The embrace of Daphnis and Chloé is marked by an orchestral climax where the violins reach their highest register. The music calms down as the old shepherd Lammon tells his story about Pan and Syrinx (oboe solo), which Daphnis and Chloé proceed to enact in a pantomime. When the god creates his flute, a panpipe created from reed-stalks, we hear Severance Hall 2014-15

About the Music

At a Glance Ravel composed the ballet Daphnis and Chloé between 1909 and 1912. It was premiered by Sergei Diaghilev’s Ballets Russes at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris on June 8, 1912. Pierre Monteux conducted; the choreography was by Michel Fokine. Vaslav Nijinsky and Tamara Karsavina danced the main roles. The complete score to Daphnis and Chloé runs about 50 minutes in performance, divided into three parts played without pause. Ravel scored it for 3 flutes (second and third doubling piccolos), alto flute, 2 oboes, english horn, small clarinet in E flat, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 3 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 4 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (tam-tam, triangle, tambourine, snare drum, military drum, antique cymbals, castanets, cymbals, wind machine, bass drum, celesta, glockenspiel, xylophone), 2 harps, strings, plus a mixed choir singing without words. Daphnis and Chloé received its United States premiere in 1935 with the Philadelphia Ballet. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed the complete ballet music to Daphnis and Chloé in April 1970, under the direction of Pierre Boulez. Excerpts and especially Suite No. 2 from the ballet have been presented frequently.

Léon Bakst’s scenery design for the original production of Ravel’s Daphnis and Chloé, Paris, 1912.

one of the most enchanting flute solos in the entire orchestral literature. (Actually, the melody is divided between the orchestra’s flute players, to give the musicians a chance to breathe!) Ravel’s melody follows no classical models — it hovers around a certain pitch to which it keeps returning, then moves and hovers around another pitch, but there seems to be no predetermined direction in which the melody progresses; nor does it respect any fixed metric structure. Daphnis and Chloé embrace one more time, and the ecstatic Danse générale gets underway. Rather unusually for a ballet, large stretches of this dance were written in the asymmetrical meter of 5/4, to which dancers and musicians in 1912 were unaccustomed. (It is said that they had to scan the words Ser-gei Dia-ghi-lev, Sergei Dia-ghi-lev until they got the rhythm right.) This asymmetry and the use of ostinatos throughout this final section remind us that the energy and daring of Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring is less than a year away. (Ostinatos, consisting of a repeating rhythmic figure or short melodic motif, were among Stravinsky’s favorite musical techniques. Both Daphnis and Chloé and The Rite of Spring end with similar effects — short rhythmic units repeated, varied, and stirred up to a paroxysm. The fact that Stravinsky was to carry this effect even further takes nothing away from the brilliance and excitement of Ravel’s finale.) —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

At the end of the dance, Dorcon tries to kiss Chloé. She innocently offers her cheek. With an abrupt motion, Daphnis pushes aside the cowherd and approaches Chloé affectionately. The youths intervene. They position themselves in front of Chloé and gently lead Daphnis away. The youths propose a dance contest between Daphnis and Dorcon. A kiss from Chloé will be the victor’s prize. There follows Dorcon’s grotesque dance.

The laughter ceases at the sight of the radiant group formed by the embracing Daphnis and Chloé. The group withdraws, taking along Chloé. Daphnis remains, immobile, as if in ecstasy. Then he lies facedown in the grass, his face in his hands. Lycéion enters. She notices the young shepherd, approaches, and raises his head, placing her hands over his eyes. Daphnis thinks this is a game of Chloé’s. But he recognizes Lycéion and tries to pull away. Lycéion dances. As though inadvertently, she drops one of her veils. Daphnis picks it up and places it back on her shoulders. She ironically resumes her dance, which, at first more languorous, becomes more animated until the end. Another veil slips to the ground, and is again retrieved by Daphnis. Vexed, Lycéion runs off mocking him, leaving the young shepherd very disturbed. Warlike sounds and war cries are heard, coming nearer. In the middle ground, women run across the stage, pursued by pirates. Daphnis thinks of Chloé, perhaps in danger, and runs off to save her. Chloé hastens on in panic, seeking shelter. She throws herself before the altar of the Nymphs, beseeching their protection. Daphnis enters looking for Chloé. He discovers on the ground a sandal that she lost in the struggle. Mad with despair, he curses the deities who were unable to protect the girl, and falls swooning at the entrance of the grotto. An unnatural light suffuses the landscape. A little glow shines suddenly from the head of one of the statues. The Nymph comes to life and descends from her pedestal. Then the second Nymph. And finally, the third Nymph. They consult together and begin a slow and mysterious dance. They notice Daphnis on the ground. They bend down and dry his tears. They revive him and lead him toward the large rock. They invoke the god Pan. Gradually the form of the god is outlined. Daphnis prostrates himself in supplication. The stage goes dark.

— PART TWO — Voices are heard from offstage, at first very distant. Far off, trumpet calls are sounded. The voices come nearer. A dull glimmer. We are in the pirate camp, on a very rugged seacoast. In the background, the sea. To the right and left, a view of large crags. The pirates’ ship, a trireme, is seen near the shore. Cypresses here and there. Pirates are seen running to and fro carrying plunder. More and more torches are brought, which finally illuminate the scene violently. Bryaxis commands that the captive be brought forward. Chloé, her

hands tied, is led in by two pirates. Bryaxis orders her to dance. Thus begins Chloé’s dance of supplication. She tries to flee. She is brought back violently. Despairing, she resumes her dance. Again she tries to escape. Again she is brought back. She abandons herself to despair, thinking of Daphnis. Bryaxis tries to carry her off. She beseeches. The leader carries her off triumphantly. Suddenly, the atmosphere seems charged with strange elements. In various places, lit by invisible hands, little flames flare up. Fantastic beings crawl or leap here and there. Satyrs appear from every side and surround the pirates. The earth opens. The fearsome shadow of Pan is outlined on the hills in the background, making a threatening gesture. Everyone flees in horror.

— PART THREE — The scene seems to dissolve. It is replaced by the landscape of the first part at the end of the night. There is no sound but the murmur of the rivulets produced by the dew that trickles from the rocks. Daphnis is still stretched out before the grotto of the Nymphs. Gradually the day breaks. The songs of birds are heard. Far off, a shepherd passes with his flock. Another shepherd crosses in the background. A group of herdsmen enters looking for Daphnis and Chloé. They discover Daphnis and wake him. Anxiously he looks around for Chloé. She appears at last, surrounded by shepherdesses. They throw themselves into each other’s arms. Daphnis notices Chloé’s wreath. His dream was a prophetic vision — the intervention of Pan is manifest. The old shepherd Lammon explains that, if Pan has saved Chloé, it is in memory of the nymph Syrinx, whom the god once loved. Daphnis and Chloé mime the tale of Pan and Syrinx. Chloé plays the young nymph wandering in the meadow. Daphnis, as Pan, appears and declares his love. The nymph rebuffs him. The god becomes more insistent. Chloé/Syrinx disappears into the reeds. In despair, Daphnis/ Pan picks several stalks to form a flute and plays a melancholy air. Chloé reappears and interprets in her dance the accents of the flute. The dance becomes more and more animated and, in a mad whirling, Chloé falls into Daphnis’s arms. Before the altar of the Nymphs, he pledges his love, offering two sheep. A group of girls enters dressed as bacchantes, shaking tambourines. Daphnis and Chloé embrace tenderly. A group of youths rushes onstage. There is a joyful commotion and a general dance of celebration by all.

Building Audiences for the Future . . . Today! The Cleveland Orchestra is committed to developing interest in classical music among young people. To demonstrate our success, we are working to have the youngest audience of any orchestra.

In recent years, student attendance has doubled, now representing 20% of those at Cleveland Orchestra concerts. Since inaugurating these programs in 2011, over 120,000 young people have participated. 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 program for families 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 on the Lawn at Blossom and to the Orchestra’s Fridays@7, Friday Morning at 11, and Sunday Afternoon at 3 concerts at Severance. STUDENT TICKET PROGRAMS

In the past two seasons, The Cleveland Orchestra’s Student Advantage Members, Frequent Fan Card holders, Student Ambassadors, and special offers for student groups attending together have been responsible for bringing more high school and college age students to Severance Hall and Blossom than ever before.

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.

$10 MILLION AND MORE

In celebration of the critical role individuals play in supporting The Cleveland Orchestra each year, donors of $2,500 and more are recognized as members of special Leadership Giving Societies. These societies are named to honor important and inspirational leaders in the Orchestra’s history. The Adella Prentiss Hughes Society honors the Orchestra’s founder and first manager, who from 1918 envisioned an ensemble dedicated to community service, music education, and performing excellence. The George Szell Society is named after the Orchestra’s fourth music director, who served for twenty-four seasons (1946-70) while refining the ensemble’s international reputation for clarity of sound and unsurpassed musical excellence. The Elisabeth DeWitt Severance Society honors not only the woman in whose memory Severance Hall was built, but her selfless sharing, including her insistence on nurturing an orchestra not just for the wealthy but for everyone. The Dudley S. Blossom Society honors one of the Orchestra’s early and most generous benefactors, whose dedication and charm rallied thousands to support and nurture a hometown orchestra toward greatness. The Frank H. Ginn Society honors the man whose judicious management of Severance Hall’s finances and construction created a beautiful and welcoming home for Cleveland’s Orchestra. The 1929 Society honors the vibrant community spirit that propelled 3,000 volunteers and donors to raise over $2 million in a nine-day campaign in April 1929 to meet and match John and Elisabeth Severance’s challenge gift toward the building of the Orchestra’s new concert hall.

THE CLEVELAN D ORCHESTRA R E C O R D I N G S great gift ideas

Critics from around the world have acclaimed the partnership of Franz Welser-Möst and The Cleveland Orchestra, and their recorded legacy continues to grow. Their newest DVD features Bruckner’s Fourth Sy Symphony recorded live in the Abbey of St. FFlorian in Linz, Austria in 2012. “A great orchestra, a Bruckner expert. . . . Five out of five e stars,” declared Austria’s Kurier newspaper. Dvořák’s opera Rusalka on CD, recorded live at the Salzburg Festival, elicited the reviewer for London’s Sunday Times to praise the performance as “the most spellbinding accountt off D Dvořák’s miraculous score I have ever heard, either in the theatre or on record. . . . I doubt this music can be better played than by the Clevelanders, the most ‘European’ of the American orchestras, with wind and brass soloists to die for and a string sound of superlative warmth and sensitivity.” Other recordings released in recent years include four acclaimed albums of Mozart piano concertos with Mitsuko Uchida and two under the baton of renowned conductor Pierre Boulez. Visit the Cleveland Orchestra Store for the latest and best Cleveland Orchestra recordings and DVDs.

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 HAILED AS ONE OF

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 special events each year.

Thursday January 29 at 7:30 p.m. Friday January 30 at 11:00 a.m. * <18s Saturday January 31 at 8:00 p.m.

Friday February 13 at 8:00 p.m.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Tugan Sokhiev, conductor Vadim Gluzman, violin *

The collaboration between director Alfred Hitchcock and composer Bernard Herrmann created a series of unforgetable films. And Vertigo — with its rich, seductive, and complex musical score — is perhaps the greatest achievement of this legendary partnership. In the film’s opening scene, police detective John “Scottie” Ferguson (James Stewart) is afflicted with vertigo during a rooftop chase that results in the death of a fellow officer. An old college chum hires Scottie as a private investigator to follow his wife, Madeleine (Kim Novak). Scottie becomes increasingly enamored of the woman he is following — and observations turn to obsession.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Brett Mitchell, conductor

Tchaikovsky’s music is often considered the most Romantic of any composer. His Fifth Symphony has been an audience favorite since its premiere in 1888 — acclaimed for its soaring melodies, and memorably passionate music. For this concert, it is paired with two additional Russian works, from the 20th century, a firey overture by Shostakovich and the technically exhilarating Second Violin Concerto by Prokofiev. * not appearing on Friday morning concert Sponsor: Jones Day
