Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director March 2015 Sustaining a world-class orchestra in Cleveland requires that we continually push to adapt and transform ourselves without compromising artistic standards. In recent seasons, we have added new programming adventures including Fridays@7, ballet performances, film presentations, and innovative operatic experiences like last season’s Cunning Little Vixen. We have boldly sought out — and successfully brought in — tens of thousands of young people each year, proving that a great orchestra appeals to all ages. We have taken concerts out into the community by performing in schools, neighborhoods, homes, shops, and public spaces. With these, and many other innovations, we are now playing more music for more people than ever before in The Cleveland Orchestra’s history. As we approach the start of our second century in 2018, it is clear that our audience base is not only growing but shifting both demographically and culturally. As our patron base continues to diversify, so do expectations for enhanced experiences above and beyond the magnificence of what we do onstage. It is with this context that it became time for us to ask you directly, “What is your experience of concert attending and what can we do better?” Last season, we embarked on a significant new journey of discovery. We created a taskforce to study the “total orchestra experience” under the leadership of Cleveland Orchestra trustee Doug Kern. By email and in focus groups, we asked more than 60,000 of you for your opinions, and you responded with useful insights, clear suggestions, thoughtful commentary, and a high level of satisfaction. Whether you were longterm subscribers or first-time buyers, classical or celebrity attendees, students or seniors, you made it clear that you take great pride in The Cleveland Orchestra. We were gratified for your endorsement, and very proud that we have so many friends here in Northeast Ohio. But we also learned, in this modern world of change and transformation, that there are some aspects of the patron experience that you feel deserve attention and are open to improvement. When the taskforce’s report was presented to the board this past autumn, it gave us all much to reflect on and, more importantly, significant and focused work to do. The recommendations range in both size and scope, with some requiring longer-term planning and budgeting, while others are now in place. Already, I have seen many of you taking advantage of our new pre-ordering intermission drink service, for instance, or relaxing in Severance Restaurant for dessert after a concert. Going forward you can expect to see additional welcome enhancements to food service, more personalized online access, streamlining of the program book, and physical changes to public spaces. Enhancing the concert-going experience will be an ongoing and iterative process over the coming seasons. But we will continue to work hard each and every day to ensure that your expectations of the world’s favorite orchestra are exceeded.

ON THE RECORD

Since its first recording session in 1924, The Cleveland Orchestra has been among the most acclaimed and recorded orchestras in the world. The Orchestra’s performances have been heard by millions through radio and television broadcasts, on LPs, CDs, DVDs, and via internet downloads. CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA ARCHIVES

In this photograph, founding music director Nikolai Sokoloff inspects a fresh pressing of the Orchestra’s very first recording, of Tchaikovsky’s “1812” Overture, in 1924.

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 concerts, engagement, and music education, to continue its legendary command of musical excellence, to build on its tradition of community support and financial strength, 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 resiAS IT NEARS THE CENTENNIAL

dency at Vienna’s Musikverein, and regular appearances at Switzerland’s Lucerne 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 Severance Hall 2014-15

meaningful contexts with new and older works. Franz Welser-Möst’s creative vision has 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.

Regine Hangler (soprano) as Daphne Andreas Schager (tenor) as Apollo Norbert Ernst (tenor) as Leukippos Ain Anger (bass) as Peneios Nancy Maultsby (mezzo-soprano) as Gaea Men of the Cleveland Orchestra Chorus directed by James Darrah with The Cleveland Orchestra conducted by Franz Welser-Möst

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’s third neighborhood residency will take place on Cleveland’s southeast side. The Cleveland Orchestra At Home in Broadway Slavic Village will include community activities, musical performances, and education presentations throughout the neighborhood in spring 2015, with a free community concert on April 10. Complete details will be announced in the coming weeks. Broadway Slavic Village was chosen as a Cleveland neighborhood that symbolizes both the history and the future of the city. The Broadway Historic District at the intersection of East 55th street has ethnic roots in the Czech and Polish communities with rich musical heritages. Broadway Slavic Village was not long ago a center of the foreclosure crisis, but today it is a national leader in reimagining urban land use and is home to people of all ages, races, and income levels, active families, young professionals, and empty nesters. “The diverse neighborhoods of Broadway Slavic Village are ideal settings for music and celebration,” at home says Chris Alvarado, executive director of Slavic Village Development. “We are thrilled to have been chosen to host the third annual Cleveland Orchestra neighborhood residency. We look forward to welcoming The Cleveland Orchestra and all who believe that music spans cultures and brings joy. Let’s have fun together!” The centerpiece of the Orchestra’s neighborhood residency in Broadway Slavic Village will be a free, public Cleveland Orchestra concert on Friday evening, April 10, 2015, at Our Lady of Lourdes Church. Residency activities will also include solo and chamber performances, along with education presentations and a variety of artistic collaborations. More about the neighborhood can be found at www.slavicvillage.org.

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.

OrchestraNews I.N M.E.M.O.R.I.A.M The entire Cleveland Orchestra family mourns the loss of our dear colleague and friend, Jamie Ireland. His death at age 65 on January 20 is an enormous loss for the Northeast Ohio community. Jamie loved this Orchestra and served and supported the institution with great distinction. He was a member of the Orchestra’s Board of Trustees for two decades and served as its President 2002-08. He loved The Cleveland Orchestra from a young age, attending his first concert at age seven, and later becoming a devoted subscriber and an Orchestra Trustee. He was a tireless fundraiser and Orchestra advocate. He chaired the search committee that identified and in 1999 chose Franz Welser-Möst as The Cleveland Orchestra’s seventh music director. As President, he was integral to creating a transformative vision for the Orchestra’s future — combining a continuity of musical excellence with a renewed commitment

to serving our region through quality programming and innovative thinking. Jamie was an effective and energetic community leader. In addition to his work with The Cleveland Orchestra, he advocated tirelessly for the community and held positions to advance that work on the boards of University Circle Inc., Great Lakes Science Center, ChamberFest Cleveland, Greater Cleveland Partnership, Northeast Ohio Regional Nonprofit Technology (NorTech), and the Opportunity Corridor Advisory Committee. Excellence and service defined him, and underscored all his work, for the orchestra he loved and for the community to which he was devoted. We mourn his loss and we pay tribute to his great legacy. We will miss Jamie very much.

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

Concerto Contrast & Russian Romantic THIS WEEK’S PROGRAM

offers music by two of Russia’s greatest 20th-century composers. While Sergei Rachmaninoff ’s musical sensibilities were largely derived from the Romanticism of the 19th century, Dmitri Shostakovich was more daring in experimenting with sounds and styles. Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto, written in 1933 when the composer was not yet thirty, is a cauldron of many ideas. He may even have begun the work as a trumpet concerto, only to have his own instrument (he was a very good pianist) overtake that idea to create a piano concerto with a very important solo trumpet part. The music hovers between the composer’s usual clear and clean textures to passages of Romantic longing and touches of Baroque classicism, with musical joking and sarcasm tossed in for good fun. Guest pianist Daniil Trifonov and Cleveland Orchestra principal trumpet Michael Sachs take on the solo roles. Rachmaninoff ’s Second Symphony is from 1909, when he was 36. With this great and melodic work, Rachmaninoff found renewed vigor in his creativity and spent the next decade creating a string of works, well-loved and cherished by music lovers around the world — though few would surpass this symphony’s success and popularity. This year marks the 30th anniversary of conductor Jahja Ling’s subscription debut at Severance Hall with The Cleveland Orchestra. His ongoing collaboration, in an evolving set of roles from staff conductor to honored guest and longtime member of The Cleveland Orchestra family, is a welcome and continuing pleasure. —Eric Sellen

LIVE RADIO BROADCAST

Saturday evening’s concert is being broadcast live on WCLV (104.9 FM). The concert will be rebroadcast as part of regular weekly programming on WCLV on Sunday afternoon, May 3, at 4:00 p.m.

Jahja Ling The 2014-15 season marks Jahja Ling’s eleventh year as music director of the San Diego Symphony. He also maintains a career as an internationally renowned guest conductor and holds a long collaborative relationship with The Cleveland Orchestra, where he was a member of the conducting staff from 1984 to 2005. Mr. Ling was resident conductor of the Orchestra (1985-2002) and served as Blossom Festival Director for six seasons (2000-05). He has returned each year as a guest conductor; concerts this past summer marked the 30th anniversary of his first conducting The Cleveland Orchestra. Mr. Ling has conducted all of the major symphony orchestras of North America and many prominent ensembles across Europe and Asia. Acclaimed for his interpretation of works in the standard repertoire, he is also recognized for the breadth of contemporary music included in his programs. Recent and upcoming appearances include performances with the San Diego Symphony at Carnegie Hall and on tour in China, plus guest conducting engagements in Asia, North America, and Europe. Jahja Ling’s commitment to working with and developing young musicians is evidenced by his involvement as founding music director of the Cleveland Orchestra Youth Orchestra (1986-93) and the San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra (1981-84), as well as work with the student orchestras of Curtis, Juilliard, Schleswig-Holstein, Colburn, and Yale. Mr. Ling’s recordings include a range of works on labels including Telarc, Azica Records, and Continuum, featuring performances with the San Diego Symphony, Florida Orchestra, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra, Taiwan Philharmonic, and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra (one of which was nominated for a Grammy Award). His performance of the world premiere of Ellen Taaffe Zwilich’s Third Symphony with the New York Philharmonic is included in that ensemble’s American Celebrations collection. Born in Jakarta, Indonesia, of Chinese descent, Jahja Ling began to play the piano at age 4 and studied at the Jakarta School of Music. At age 17, he won the Jakarta Piano Competition and was awarded a Rockefeller grant to attend the Juilliard School. He continued his education at Yale, studying orchestra conducting under Otto-Werner Mueller and earning a doctor of musical arts degree. After Yale, he was awarded a Leonard Bernstein Fellowship to study at Tanglewood, where Bernstein became the most important mentor of his musical life. In addition to his years with The Cleveland Orchestra, and as a member of the conducting staff of the San Francisco Symphony, Mr. Ling served as music director of the Florida Orchestra (1988-2003) and was artistic director of the Taiwan Philharmonic (1998-2001). As a pianist, he won a bronze medal at the 1977 Arthur Rubinstein International Piano Master Competition in Israel. Severance Hall 2014-15

Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, Opus 35 composed 1933

by

Dmitri

SHOSTAKOVICH born September 25, 1906 St. Petersburg (later Leningrad) died August 9, 1975 Moscow

Severance Hall 2014-15

S H O S T A K O V I C H completed his second opera, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk, at the end of 1932. Ready for a change of direction, he immediately embarked on twenty-four preludes for solo piano, a series of short pieces that allowed him to impose a variety of styles on an essentially Bach-like frame. The spirit of the 1920s was still strong and the fatal effects of Stalin’s grip on power (and life) in the Soviet Union had not affected the arts too severely. And Shostakovich was not yet displaying the sullen exterior that would allow him — when his livelihood, even his life, was threatened by the regime — to conceal his real feelings and channel them privately into his music. The extrovert spirit of the First Piano Concerto, which followed immediately after the composition of the Twenty-Four Preludes, is at all events free of the dissembling and mystery that envelops the composer’s later music. This was partly because Shostakovich, a shy man in real life, was a young, brilliant pianist who was not shy to play in public. He gave the first performance of the Preludes while still at work on the concerto, and then followed with the first performance of this new piano concerto in the autumn of 1933. It was an immediate success, and he gave many performances in the following years. Twenty years later, he added a Second Piano Concerto, which he also played himself, although it was written for, and first performed by, his son, Maxim. There is some evidence — and even comments by Shostakovich toward the possibility — that the First Piano Concerto was at first going to be a trumpet concerto, in a somewhat neobaroque style. The trumpet is, indeed, rather unusually coupled with the strings in the accompanying group. The finished piece, however, does little to support such an origin, with the trumpet’s part so secondary to that of the piano and so neatly complementary to the soloist’s part. (The composer changed his early title for the piece, “Concerto for Piano with the Accompaniment of String Orchestra and Trumpet,” to be more straightforwardly a traditionally titled Piano Concerto.) The motive for featuring a trumpet was Shostakovich’s admiration for Alexander Schmidt, the principal trumpet in the Leningrad Philharmonic, who played in the first performance with the composer. Musically, the concerto has provided a happy hunting About the Music

ground for those who like to spot the quotations and allusions, of which it is full. Shostakovich was obviously in the mood to slyly slip in tunes from the classics or from his own works, some of which are difficult to spot even for those who know his music well. A sense of parody reinforces the obviously high-spirited tone of the first and last movements. Snatches of Haydn and Beethoven appear, as well as citations from his own recent works and popular songs. It is not all fun, however. The slow movement is profoundly reflective, only introducing the trumpet when it is time for the opening tune, originally heard in the violins, to be repeated. Yet there is still space for the piano to take over the closing section of the movement with a new theme. The third movement is largely subdued, too, being more of an introduction to the finale than a movement in its own right. The severe spirit of Bach is present at many points throughout the concerto, yet it is the exuberance of the first movement, and especially of the fourthmovement finale, that leaves the strongest impression — and gives listeners full satisfaction from this concerto for piano and strings . . . and trumpet. —Hugh Macdonald © 2015 Hugh Macdonald is Avis H. Blewett Professor Emeritus of Music at Washington University in St. Louis and is a noted authority on French music. He has written books on Beethoven, Berlioz, and Scriabin. His latest book, on Bizet, was published at the end of 2014.

At a Glance Shostakovich wrote his first piano concerto in 1933. He played the solo part in the first performance, on October 15, 1933, with the Leningrad Philharmonic under the direction of Friz Stiedry; the featured trumpet role was performed by the orchestra’s principal trumpet, Alexander Schmid. This concerto runs about 20 minutes in performance. Shostakovich scored it for a string orchestra, plus solo piano and featured trumpet. The four movements are played “attaca” (without breaks or pauses).

The Cleveland Orchestra first performed this work in November 1936, when music director Artur Rodzinski conducted and Eugene List was the piano soloist with principal trumpet Louis Davidson playing the featured brass role. It has been programmed on only three occasions since then, in 1964, 1978, and most recently in April 2003 when Esa-Pekka Salonen led a weekend of concerts featuring Alexander Toradze as solo pianist with principal trumpet Michael Sachs.

Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Opus 27 composed 1906-07 TO TELL THE STORIES

of Sergei Rachmaninoff ’s symphonies is to give a capsule biography of the artist. Each symphony belongs to a different period in Rachmaninoff ’s career. Aside from a student essay (of which only the first movement survives), there are three numbered symphonies, plus the choral symphony The Bells, which bears no number. Together, they illustrate Rachmaninoff ’s life-long search to find his identity as a composer. When Rachmaninoff wrote his Symphony No. 1 in D minor (Opus 13) at the age of 22, he had already established himself in Russia as one of the most talented musicians of his generation. Graduated from the Moscow Conservatory with the rarely-awarded Gold Medal, he was widely known as a prodigious pianist. He was also considered a promising composer — his examination piece, the one-act opera Aleko, had been performed at the Bolshoi Theater, sharing a double bill with a work by Tchaikovsky. The premiere of Rachmaninoff ’s First Symphony, given in St. Petersburg on March 15, 1897, turned out to be an unexpected disaster. The conductor, Alexander Glazunov, a famous composer and professor at the St. Petersburg Conservatory, was apparently unsympathetic to the music of a Muscovite (there was an open rivalry between the music schools of the two Russian capitals). The critics, among them composer César Cui (a former member of the group of composers known as “the Five,” who could often sway professional opinion), found the symphony seriously flawed, and wrote scathing reviews. The ensuing fiasco thrust young Rachmaninoff into such a state of depression that for three entire years he was largely unable to write any music whatsoever. He only recovered his ability to work through the intervention of a psychiatrist who used the new method of hypnosis to restore his self-confidence. Evenso, and despite the resounding success of his Second Piano Concerto in 1901, it took six more years before RachImmigration Services for Corporations & Individuals

The premiere of Rachmaninoff’s First Symphony in 1897, turned out to be an unexpected disaster. The ensuing fiasco thrust young Rachmaninoff into such a state of depression that for three years he was largely unable to write any music whatsoever. And it would be ten years before he attempted — and succeeded — with his next symphony.

maninoff attempted another symphony. In the meantime, he was busy as an opera conductor at the Imperial Theater and as a concert pianist. Finally, he made a radical decision, cancelled all his performing engagements, and left Russia in order to be able to work on his composition projects undisturbed. In October 1906, Rachmaninoff, together with his young wife and baby daughter, took up residence in the German town of Dresden. There — and during the warmer months, while residing at his summer estate near Moscow — he spent the better part of 1907 working on his Second Symphony. The new work, premiered in St. Petersburg on February 8, 1908, under the composer’s baton, was well received, and Rachmaninoff confirmed his position as Russia’s leading young composer. The Second Symphony marked the beginning of Rachmaninoff ’s most successful years as a composer. In the decade before the Russian Revolutions of 1917 and his emigration to the West, Rachmaninoff wrote the symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead, the Third Piano Concerto, two great liturgical works (Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom and Vespers), numerous songs, and piano works, as well as the choral symphony The Bells. During the following decade, by contrast, Rachmaninoff wrote almost nothing at all. In the years after his departure from Russia, he became a world-famous piano virtuoso, with a busy concert schedule all over the United States and Europe, allowing little time for composing. Rachmaninoff settled in the United States, but soon acquired a villa and an adjoining property in Switzerland, where he began to compose again on his vacations. It is there that he wrote his last important works, including the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in 1934 and the Third Symphony in 1935-36. THE SECOND SYMPHONY

The Second Symphony begins with a Largo introduction whose opening motif, first presented by the cellos and basses, will recur in varied form throughout the symphony. Its main features are a stepwise motion (first ascending, then descending), and a rhythmic pattern with ties across the barline. This material dominates both the lengthy introduction and the subsequent main section of the first movement. At first soft and subdued, the main theme is gradually transformed, through variation and development, and reappears forte played by the full orchestra. A second melodic idea is based on an alternaAbout the Music

tion between woodwind and strings, and brought to a climax, only to fade back to pianissimo at the end of the exposition. The beginning of the development section is marked by the return of the main theme as a violin solo. The theme is soon taken over by the clarinet, and turned into fast-moving figurations in both winds and strings. After a new emotional high point, the recapitulation begins, concentrating on the second theme, which appears in E major. The movement’s coda, however, reverts to the key of E minor, the main tonality, and brings the movement to a ringing close. The second movement is a Scherzo in sonata form, with a contrasting second theme. The main melody is played first by the horns and then by the violins against a lively rhythmic background. The second theme, without being a direct quote of the first movement’s main idea, shares with it a stepwise motion and its characteristic rhythm. It is followed by a return of the first theme. The movement’s Trio section, somewhat closer in tempo, also contains two distinct materials: the first is played staccato (short, separated notes) by the violins, while the second, with brass and percussion as the protagonists, is a special mixture of a march and a church hymn, with unexpected off-beat accents. A return to the first tempo brings back both themes of the main section, but the movement closes with some reminiscences of the march from the Trio. The third-movement Adagio begins with an expressive violin melody followed by a clarinet solo in the same kind of mold as the symphony’s earlier themes, in stepwise motion. A third idea, played by the first violins, receives a counterpoint from the other strings and the woodwinds, and leads back to the first theme, now heard at great volume in a full orchestral fortissimo. The middle section starts very soft ly with english horn and oboe solos. A new climax is reached, soon to recede into a decrescendo and, finally, a long silence. In the recapitulation the first theme is re-introduced by the horn. The other two ideas also return, in richer orchestration than before, and contrapuntally combined with parts of the first theme. Like the second movement, the third also ends with an allusion to material heard in its middle section. The fourth-movement Finale in E major starts with a fanfare-like theme played fortissimo by the entire orchestra. It is followed by a transition section for horns, timpani, and double bass, which leads into a march for winds (not unlike the one heard Severance Hall 2014-15

in the second movement). The main theme returns, then gives way to a broad melody, eventually winding down to pianissimo chords over a long-held pedal. After a short recall of the third movement’s main theme, a development section begins, with mostly new melodic ideas, among which a descending scale gains increasing prominence. The recapitulation section brings back the fanfare, the march, the broad melody, and the descending scale, combining them all in the symphony’s triumphant ending. —Peter Laki Copyright © Musical Arts Association

Peter Laki is a musicologist and frequent lecturer on classical music. He is a visiting associate professor at Bard College.

At a Glance Rachmaninoff composed his Second Symphony in 1906-07. The first performance took place on February 8, 1908, in St. Petersburg, with the composer conducting. The United States premiere was given by Modeste Altschuler and the Russian Musical Society in New York on January 14, 1909. This symphony runs about an hour in performance. Rachmaninoff scored it for 3 flutes (third doubling piccolo),

3 oboes (third doubling english horn), 2 clarinets, bass clarinet, 2 bassoons, 4 horns, 3 trumpets, 3 trombones, tuba, timpani, percussion (side drum, bass drum, cymbals, glockenspiel), and strings. Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony was introduced to Cleveland by the visiting Boston Symphony Orchestra, which played it at Grays Armory in January 1911, under Max Fiedler. The Cleveland Orchestra first

performed it in March 1920, conducted by Nikolai Sokoloff. The most recent performances were given in November 2012 under the direction of Jaap van Zweden. The Cleveland Orchestra and Nikolai Sokoloff recorded Rachmaninoff’s Second Symphony in May 1928, using a score especially prepared and shortened by the composer; this “complete” recording was released as a set of twelve 78 rpm discs.

In appreciation of their support, The Cleveland Orchestra extends a special welcome to Great Lakes Brewing Company, whose guests are enjoying a special time at Severance Hall this weekend.

The Cleveland Orchestra


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. 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 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.

JOHN L. SEVERANCE SOCIETY

gifts during the past year, as of December 20, 2014

$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 Symphony recorded live in the Abbey of St. Sy 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

88

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.
