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 i t n e a r s t h e c e n t e nnia l

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. Franz Welser-Möst’s creative vision has Severance Hall 2014-15

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 Music by Richard Strauss


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.

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.

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 by clicking on “Publications” in the “News & Updates” section. as I l oo k b ac 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.

This financial success is part of a larger, ongoing transformation in spirit. Franz Wel­ ser-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. 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



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.

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. 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. 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 orch­ estra.”

Cleveland Orchestra News



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. In his message, Mr. LaBarre outlines the

Lawn Ticket Books are on sale through the Ticket Office and website, along with new subscriptions. Individual tickets for the entire season will go on sale beginning May 12. Subscribers will have the opportunity to order additional tickets in a pre-sale period beginning April 20. The season features Franz Welser-Möst conducting Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with soloists and the Blossom Festival Chorus, and concludes Labor Day Weekend with a program devoted to the film music of John Williams. Complete details can be viewed beginning on Sunday, January 25, at the Orchestra’s website,

Details of the 2015 Lincoln Center Festival this coming summer, including a week of concerts featuring The Cleveland Orchestra in residence, have been announced. Led by music director Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra returns to Lincoln Center Festival with four concerts (July 15-18) focused on the exploration of the relationship of humanity with nature. The Orchestra offers two performances of Richard Strauss’s rarely-performed ”bucolic tragedy” Daphne, highlighting Franz Welser-Möst’s passion and expertise in the operatic repertory, along with two additional programs featuring works that probe humanity’s understanding of the natural world, by Messiaen, Dvořák, Beethoven, and Strauss. All of these works are being presented in concerts at Severance Hall in May. Richard Strauss’s seldom performed, one-act opera, Daphne, is among the great works of the composer’s later period. With a libretto by Joseph Gregor, the work was premiered in 1938, and retells the story of the beautiful nymph Daphne, with a plot derived from the familiar myth from Ovid’s Metamorphoses. In it, Daphne is an outsider who cherishes the beauty of nature, where she feels most at home. When the god Apollo betrays her trust and kills his rival, Daphne is inconsolable. Apollo is moved by Daphne’s profound grief and grants her immortality by transforming her into a laurel tree. This operatic gem has been called one of Strauss’s supreme love letters to the soprano voice. It is being presented at Severance Hall on May 27 and 30.

Passionate Portraits & Musical Pictures

offer three works of musical portraiture — of jealous passion, of a country’s dynamic and melodic rhythms, and of a variety-filled artwalk with a friend. All with a Slavic slant, from Central or Eastern Europe (Czech or Russian). The evening opens with a rarely-heard work by the Czech composer Leoš Janáček. Written in 1894 as the overture to his third opera, the brief orchestral Jealousy is fi lled with passionate outbursts and musical argument. Next comes an inspiring work by another Czech master, Antonín Dvořák. Written at the height of his powers and fame as a composer, the Violin Concerto is from 1880. While less well-known than the Big Four (Beethoven, Brahms, Mendelssohn, and Tchaikovsky), this concerto offers a unique musical landscape between Brahmsian classicism and more m localized and evocative details chosen from Dvořák’s Czech background. It is perf formed here with concertmaster William Preuf cil c as soloist. To conclude the evening, guest conductor Jakub Hrůša leads The Cleveland Orchestra in Ja a perennial audience favorite, Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition as orchestrated by Maurice Ravel. First created in 1874 as a solo piano piece in homage to his friend, the artist Viktor Hartmann, this work details for us a series of paintings that were exhibited following Hartmann’s untimely death at the age of 39. Ravel’s masterful rendition, from 1922, brings forth full orchestral virtuosity — and captivatingly spans the individual piece’s (or painting’s) subjects, from searingly-detailed portraits of individuals to imaginatively grandiloquent ideas, fanciful designs, terrorfilled demons, and everyday scenes. All-in-all, this is a perfect set of musical works to warm us amidst winter’s chills and cold. —Eric Sellen THIS WEEK’S CONCERTS

Jakub Hrůša Czech conductor Jakub Hrůša is music director and chief conductor of the Prague Philharmonia, where he previously served as principal conductor. In addition, he holds the titles of music director for Glyndebourne on Tour and principal guest conductor of the Tokyo Metropolitan Symphony Orchestra.

Guest Conductor


Jealousy [Žárlivost] composed 1894

can be divided into early and late phases by the composition and performance of his opera Jenůfa. For the first sixty years of his life, he was a composer, teacher, writer, and folklorist working diligently in Brno, little recognized even in the Bohemian capital, Prague. The success of Jenůfa, when finally performed in Prague in 1915, launched Janáček’s name beyond his Moravian home and led to international fame and to an extraordinary output of operas in the remaining thirteen years of his life. Only the second of his earliest two operas was performed, and both failed to satisfy him. But with his third, Jenůfa, begun in 1894, he felt he had the right combination of strong drama supported by a folk-music idiom. The overture was completed the same year, although the rest of the opera was not ready until 1903, nine years later. By that time he had decided that the overture did not fit the idiom of the opera, so he wrote a brief introduction to the opening scene of the opera instead. After the opera was first performed, in Brno in 1904, the original overture appeared as a separate orchestral work under the title žárlivost, or “Jealousy.” Jealousy is indeed one of many powerful emotions built into the opera’s action, for it concerns bitter family tensions in a mill in a remote Moravian village. Two half-brothers are in love with the girl Jenůfa. At the start of the opera she is in love with the elder brother Števa, arousing in Laca, the younger brother, feelings of jealousy so intense that he slashes her with a knife in order to spoil the beauty his rival so admires. Eventually Jenůfa is abandoned by Števa, even though she has a child by him. The child is murdered by Jenůfa’s stern stepmother, but she finds comfort in Laca’s love after all. In Jealousy, Janáček used a Moravian hot-blooded folksong called “The Jealous Man” (which he had arranged for men’s chorus in 1888). The composer’s style, which always favored the obsessive treatment of short motifs, is brilliantly apt for a depiction of intense feelings of this sort. The first part of the piece is dominated by a figure in the bass instruments heard at the beginning, but its later development is taken over by a four-note figure that turns back on itself, used with the same striking intensity.

At a Glance Janáček wrote the work now known as Jealousy (“Žárlivost” in Czech) in 1894 as the overture to his opera Jenůfa. He later created a brief musical introduction for the opera instead, and then, in 1904, turned the original into a free-standing orchestral piece. The music includes phrases from a Czech folksong, “The Jealous Man,” which Janáček had arranged for men’s chorus in 1888. The first public performance of Jealousy was in Prague on November 14, 1906, with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by


František Neumann. This work runs just over 5 minutes in performance. Janáček scored it for 2 flutes (second doubling piccolo), 2 oboes, english horn, 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, glockenspiel, harp, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this work for the first time this week, in Bloomington, Indiana, on Wednesday night, and here at Severance Hall on Friday and Saturday.

Violin Concerto in A minor, Opus 53 composed 1879-83

became one of the 19th century’s most cosmopolitan composers, and yet his early ascent to international fame coincided with a surge in Czech artistic nationalism. This “Cultural Revival” was in full swing by the 1860s, yielding Prague’s first Czech-language theater and the beginnings of a national operatic tradition. The growth of a Czech-speaking middle class and the gradual decline of the Hapsburg Empire reinforced the role of music as an expression of localized identity. Still, the movement toward palpable and popular feelings of Czech-ness arose in a world dominated by German convention. Bedřich Smetana, “father of Czech music,” had fallen under the spell of Wagner and Liszt, appropriating a Romantic notion of nationalism as he built the country’s own modern school. Dvořák, who turned to native folklore as a way of fostering a Czech tradition both independent and forward-looking, lived in a world dominated by Johannes Brahms. The two became aware of each other’s music sometime in the 1870s. It was upon the recommendation of Brahms that Dvořák began his relationship with the German publisher Simrock, who accepted his Moravian Duets and commissioned the first set of Slavonic Dances. Dvořák’s strong Czech identity continued to express itself in subsequent works, such as the Slavonic Rhapsody, Czech Suite — and, as we will see — the Violin Concerto. He also had no qualms about expressing his allegiances in personal exchanges. When Simrock insisted on printing his first name as the Germanicized “Anton,” the composer was moved to reply: “May the nations never perish that possess art and represent it, however small they may be. . . . I simply wished to tell you that an artist also has a fatherland in which he must have a firm faith and for which he must have a warm heart.” Shortly thereafter, in 1879, Dvořák began writing his Violin Concerto for Joseph Joachim, who had premiered Brahms’s Violin Concerto that same year. The violinist had also championed Dvořák’s String Sextet and E-flat String Quartet. Yet Joachim outright rejected the original score for the new concerto (the sketches for which were likely later destroyed). “According to Mr. Joachim’s wish, I revised the whole concerto and did not leave a single bar untouched,” Dvořák wrote to his pub-

lisher in 1880. His efforts did little to convince Joachim, who responded to the composer two years later: “I still do not think the Violin Concerto in its present shape to be ripe for the public, especially because of its orchestral accompaniment, which is still rather heavy.” Although Joachim would later perform the work at the conservatory in Berlin where he served as director, it was Dvořák’s friend František Ondříček who gave the world premiere at the Prague National Theater in 1883. While the concerto’s heroic nature speaks to the influence of Brahms, Dvořák openly flouts formal conventions, favoring rich, inventive lyricism and folk rhythms. The violin enters in the opening Allegro without any orchestral exposition. The nearly improvisatory nature of its melody contrasts with the thunderous introduction by the full orchestra. Despite a hint of sonata form as the orchestra’s material returns as a kind of counter-theme, a free sense of melodic development dominates the musical structure, with the violin playing more or less non-stop. A second dance-like theme is introduced in major mode to counterpoint with the oboe — a moment of unusually light orchestration — but it isn’t long before the violin has launched into a variation of the orchestra’s furious opening theme. After a brief cadenzalike passage scored against a distant horn, the soloist dips below the woodwinds in a bridge that leads directly to the slow inner movement — one of the structural features Joachim criticized. The violin, having surreptitiously modulated into Fmajor, plays an elegiac line against atmospheric winds. A second, darker theme in D minor makes a brief appearance but dissolves into soothing arpeggios soon thereafter. The mood wavers in and out of profound melancholy as the violin carries out its plaintive song. The lively A major finale takes the form of a furiant dance in sonata-rondo form while also incorporating folk melodies foreign to the triple meter. The main theme is accompanied by different orchestration with each episode, from parallel high strings in its first appearance to violins and cellos imitating the Czech dudy, or bagpipes, with drone-like open fifths. A duple-time dumka in D minor, opened with the oboe playing in parallel thirds, creates a bridge into the recapitulation, only to return briefly after the flute’s eerie echo of the main theme to usher the orchestra toward a triumphant close of four resounding A-major chords.

At a Glance Dvořák composed his Violin Concerto between July and September 1879, subsequently revising it over the next three years. The first performance was presented on October 14, 1883, in Prague, with violinist František Ondříček; Moric Anger conducted the Czech National Theater Orchestra. The score was published with a dedication to Joseph Joachim, who had suggested revisions to the work. The United States premiere was given by violinist Max Bendix and the newly-founded Chicago Orchestra under Theodore Thomas’s direction on October 30, 1891. This concerto runs about 30 minutes in performance. Dvořák scored it for 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings, plus the solo violin. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Dvořák’s Violin Concerto in January 1937, with soloist Ernö Valasek and music director Artur Rodzinski. It has been presented at Severance Hall occasionally since then, most recently in February 2007, when Hilary Hahn played the solo part under Iván Fischer’s direction.

to the critic Vladimir Stasov in 1874. And then he proceeded to paraphrase a famous passage from Shakespeare’s King Lear: “Why should a dog, a horse, a rat, live on, when creatures like Hartmann must die?” Viktor Hartmann, a gifted architect and painter and a close friend of Mussorgsky’s, had recently died at age 39. A commemorative exhibit of his paintings inspired Mussorgsky to pay a musical tribute to his friend by writing a piano suite based on his own impressions of the paintings. The suite was not performed or published during the composer’s lifetime, however, and it did not become universally known until Maurice Ravel orchestrated it in 1922. What’s more, originally written for piano, Pictures at an Exhibition did not become a regular part of the piano repertoire until the middle of the 20th century, after it had already been popularized by symphony orchestras. From the beginning, the original piece cried out for orchestration, partly because its piano writing was not idiomatic — in the sense that Schumann’s or Chopin’s or Liszt’s piano writing fits the piano so perfectly — and partly because of the sharply profiled and contrasted musical characteristics that could be underscored to great effect when divided out and played by a full orchestra. Other composers had already orchestrated it, but in Ravel’s 1922 orchestration Pictures at an Exhibition conquered the world. It is understandable that Ravel was enthusiastic about Mussorgsky’s piece. Ravel had often translated visual images into music in his own works. He had known Pictures at an Exhibition as a piano work since at least 1900, having played it through with his friends at informal musical evenings. As French composers at the turn of that century, Ravel and his compatriot Claude Debussy felt that Mussorgsky was one of the most important composers from recent generations. In his piano cycle, Mussorgsky chose ten of Hartmann’s pictures for musical illustration. The pictures are separated — in the first half of the work at any rate — by a melody called “Promenade,” which portrays the visitor at the gallery strolling from picture to picture. It is fascinating to listen to the changes undergone by this melody in its various recurrences, for the impression left by the last picture seems to linger on musically as the visitor proceeds to the next painting. About the Music


Art is not an end in itself, but

a means of addressing humanity.   

—Modest Mussorgsky

Mussorgsky, painted in March 1881 just a few days before he died, by Ilya Repin.

The first picture, “Gnomus,” represents a toy nutcracker in the shape of a dwarf. The strange and unpredictable movements of this creature are depicted quite vividly. Then we hear the “Promenade” again, and are ushered into “Il vecchio castello” (“The Old Castle”), where a troubadour or medieval court singer is voicing a wistful song. In Ravel’s orchestration, this haunting melody is played by the alto saxophone. The next picture — preceded again by the “Promenade” — is titled in French: “Tuileries (Dispute d’enfants après jeux)” (“Tui­ leries: Dispute between Children at Play”). It shows children playing and quarrelling in the Tuileries gardens in Paris. It is followed immediately — with no “Promenade” this time — by “Bydlo,” the Polish oxcart, slowly approaching and then going away as its ponderous melody gets first louder and then softer.     A much shortened “Promenade,” more lyrical in tone than before, leads into the first movement to have a Russian title in the original: “Balet nevylupivshikhsya ptentsov” (“Ballet of the Unhatched Chicks”). This movement is based on the designs Hartmann had made for the ballet Trilbi at the Maryinsky Theater in St. Petersburg. In the ballet, a group of children appeared dressed up as canaries; others, according to a contemporary description, were “enclosed in eggs as in suits of armor,” with only their legs sticking out of the eggshells.    The next picture is titled, in the original, “‘Samuel’ Goldenberg und ‘Schmuÿle’.” Hartmann had painted a number of characters from the Jewish ghetto in Sandomierz, Poland, including a rich man in a fur hat and a poor one sitting with his head bent. This movement is traditionally believed to represent an argument between two men, one rich, the other poor. The rich Jew is represented by a slow-moving unison melody stressing the interval of the augmented second (considered an “Oriental” interval and frequent in certain forms of Jewish chant and folk music, with which Mussorgsky was familiar). The poor man is characterized by a plaintive theme whose repeated notes seem to be choking with emotion. Then, the two themes are heard simultaneously. In Ravel’s orchestration, Goldenberg has the entire string section at his command, while Schmuÿle tries to defend himself, desperately, with the sound of a single muted trumpet. “Limoges le marché (La grande nouvelle)” (“Limoges, the Market: The Big News”) portrays the hustle and bustle of an openair market in France where people are busy gossiping and quarrelling. Mussorgsky’s original manuscript contained a more detailed Severance Hall 2014-15

At a Glance Mussorgsky composed Kartinki s vystavki (“Pictures at an Exhibition”) as a set of solo piano pieces in June 1874. The cycle was inspired by a posthumous exhibition of paintings by Viktor Hartmann (1834-1873), a friend of the composer. Ravel orchestrated Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition in 1922. This version was first performed on October 19, 1922, in Paris, conducted by Serge Koussevitzky. It was published in 1929. Pictures at an Exhibition runs about 35 minutes in performance. Ravel’s orchestration calls for 3 flutes (one doubling piccolo), 3 oboes (one doubling english horn), 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, alto saxophone, 2 bassoons, contrabassoon, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (bass drum, cymbals, side drum, triangle, tam-tam, whip, xylophone, glockenspiel, rattle, tubular bells), celesta, 2 harps, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Ravel’s orchestration of Pictures at an Exhibition in October 1931, under the direction of Nikolai Sokoloff. It has been presented regularly since that time, most recently as part of the 2009 Blossom Festival, under the direction of Lionel Bringuier.

sangeot has just recovered his cow ‘Fugitive.’ But the good wives of Limoges are not interested in this incident because Madame de Remboursac has acquired very fine porcelain dentures, while Monsieur de Panta-Pantaléon is still troubled by his obtrusive nose that remains as red as a peony.” What a contrast to go from this bustling market immediately to the “Catacombs.” Hartmann’s watercolor shows the artist, a friend, and their guide (who is holding a lantern) examining the underground burial chambers in Paris. On the right, one can see a large pile of skulls which, in Mussorgsky’s imagination, suddenly begin to glow. The “Promenade” theme appears next, completely transfigured, as the inscription in the score says, “Cum mortuis in lingua mortua” (“With the dead in a dead language”). (Actually, Mussorgsky wrote con instead of cum, substituting the Italian word for its Latin equivalent.) The next section, “Izbushka na kuryikh nozhkakh (BabaYaga)” (“The Hut on Fowl’s Legs: Baba Yaga”), evokes the witch of Russian folktales, who lives in just such an edifice. According to legend, Baba Yaga lures children into her hut and then eats them. According to one recent retelling of the story, she “crushes their bones in the giant mortar in which she rides through the woods propelling herself with the pestle and covering her tracks with a broomstick.” Hartmann had designed a clock in the form of the famous hut; its design survives only as a sketch. Mussorgsky’s movement — whose rhythm has something of the ticking of a giant clock — has a mysterious-sounding middle section, after which the wilder and louder first material returns. The “witch music” continues directly into the grand finale, “Bogatyrskie vorotá (vo stolnom gorode vo Kieve)” (“The Knight’s Gate in the Ancient Capital, Kiev”), most often known simply as “The Great Gate of Kiev,” inspired by an ambitious design that was submitted for a competition but never built. For this immense architectural structure, Mussorgsky provided a grandiose melody resembling a church hymn and presented in rich harmonies. This theme alternates with a more subdued second melody, harmonized like a chorale. Near the end, the movement incorporates the “Promenade” theme, leading directly into the magnificent final climax, symbolizing, in many ways, the grandeur of old Russia. —Peter Laki

The Cleveland Orchestra 9/29/14 2:17 PM

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. With the help of generous contributors, the Orch­estra has expanded its discounted ticket offerings through several new programs. 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. Un d e r 1 8 s F REE 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. S TUDE N T T I C KET P R O GR A M S

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 Orchestra’s ongoing Student Advantage Program provides opportunities for students to attend concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom through discounted ticket offers. Membership is free to join and rewards members with discounted ticket purchases. A record 6,000 students joined in the past year. A new Student Frequent Fan Card is available in conjunction with Student Advantage membership, offering unlimited single tickets (one per Fan Card holder) all season long. All of these programs are supported by The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences and the Alexander and Sarah Cutler Fund for Student Audiences. The Center for Future Audiences was created with a $20 million lead endowment gift from the Maltz Family Foundation to develop new generations of audiences for Cleveland Orchestra concerts in Northeast Ohio.

The Cleveland Orchestra Center for Future Audiences T h e C l e v e l an 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.

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.

Individual Annual Support The Cleveland Orchestra gratefully recognizes the individuals listed here, who have provided generous gifts of cash or pledges of $2,500 or more to the Annual Fund, benefit events, tours and residencies, and special annual donations.

Lifetime Giving

Giving Societies


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 Cleveland Orchestra

Your Role . . . in The Cleveland Orchestra’s Future Generations of Clevelanders have supported the Orchestra and enjoyed its concerts.

To sustain its activities here in Northeast Ohio, the Orchestra has undertaken the most ambitious fundraising campaign in our history: the Sound for the Centennial Campaign. By making a donation, you can make a crucial difference in helping to ensure that future generations will continue to enjoy the Orchestra’s performances, education programs, and community activities and partnerships.

T H E C l e v e l a n d O r ch e s t r a RECORDINGS 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 Symphony recorded live in the Abbey of St. Florian in Linz, Austria in 2012. “A great orch­ estra, a Bruckner expert. . . . Five out of five 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 account of 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

h ai l e d as on e 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.

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Hannu Lintu, conductor Vadim Gluzman, violin *

  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, an opening work by Sibelius and the technically exhilarating Second Violin Concerto by Pro­kofiev. * not appearing on Friday morning concert Sponsor: Jones Day

  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. Sponsor: PNC Bank
