Perspectivesfrom the Executive Director April-May 2015 To everyone hearing The Cleveland Orchestra at this weekend’s concerts: thank you. Each year’s success is built on the efforts of many. As we approach the conclusion of the Severance Hall season, with a final month of exciting concerts in May, we are preparing to close the books on another great year. Many of you attending are also generous in supporting the Orchestra financially through the Annual Fund. Your support fuels the Orchestra’s ongoing success, artistic excellence, community and education programs, and new innovations: More music for more people. The Cleveland Orchestra has made this a mantra and an engine propelling us forward each season. We are engaging more deeply with music lovers across Northeast Ohio, from our homebase at Severance Hall, to our summer home at Blossom, and many places beyond and in between. We have added opera and ballet to the annual schedule. We are stepping off the stage into coffee shops, restaurants, and churches through our neighborhood residency program and community engagement activities, creating untold enthusiasm at the grassroots level. Innovation and engagement. We are welcoming tens of thousands of young people to Orchestra concerts each season. We are expanding our reach into local schools, performing in auditoriums and classrooms and bringing students of all ages into Severance Hall for a variety of education programs. From innovative opera productions to new series — like Summers@Severance — we are exploring new and better ways of showcasing the world’s best music. We have established fruitful and rewarding residencies in Miami, Vienna, New York, and at Indiana University, building on our reputation for excellence and innovation. Measurable success. Alongside producing musical experiences of the highest quality, we are achieving new levels of success across all aspects of our operations. With ticket sales at 10-year highs and record philanthropic support from thousands of donors, we have balanced the budget for three consecutive years. This period of renewal and transformation for the future is built on our long-held tradition of excellence in everything we do, and is earning The Cleveland Orchestra recognition among our peers as a leader in what it means to be an orchestra in the 21st century. The Cleveland Orchestra’s success is the result of concentrated effort by everyone involved — on and off the stage. This institution’s greatest asset has always been the vision, dedication, and support of the people of Northeast Ohio. Generations of G-reater Clevelanders, through their generous support and repeated patronage, have inspired and fueled The Cleveland Orchestra’s trademark musical excellence and ongoing service to this region. As the fiscal year comes to a close on June 30, we invite you to consider your own investment in sustaining the Orchestra. Please be counted among the thousands of supporters who enable this Orchestra to serve the people of Northeast Ohio with quality musical experiences, community presentations, and education programs.

APRIL 1935: Act Three, Scene One from Wagner’s opera Die Meistersinger at Severance Hall. During his tenure as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra (1933-43), Artur Rodzinski used the hall’s orchestra pit to feature staged opera productions in five of his ten seasons — including the American premiere of Shostakovich’s Lady Macbeth of Mzensk in 1935. Staged opera continues next month at Severance Hall with Richard Strauss’s Daphne, May 27 and 30.

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 continue its legendary command of musical excellence, to renew its focus on fully serving the communities where it performs through concerts, engagement, and music education, to develop the youngest audience of any orchestra, to build on its tradition of community support and financial strength, and to move forward into the Orchestra’s next century with a unswerving commitment to innovation and daring to succeed. 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 more than nine decades 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. An Enduring Tradition of Community Support. The Cleveland Orchestra was born in Cleveland, created by a group of visionary citizens who believed in the power of music and aspired to having the best performances of great orchestral music possible anywhere. Generations of Clevelanders have supported this vision and enjoyed the Orchestra’s concerts. Hundreds of thousands have learned to love music through its education programs and celebrated important events with its music. While strong ticket sales cover just under half of each season’s costs, it is the generosity of thousands each year that drives the Orchestra forward and sustains its extraordinary tradition of excellence onstage, in the classroom and for the community. The Cleveland Orchestra was founded in 1918. Over the ensuing decades, the Orchestra quickly grew from a fine regional organization to being one of the most admired symphony orchestras in the world. Seven music directors have guided and shaped the ensemble’s growth and sound: Nikolai Sokoloff, 1918-33; Artur Rodzinski, 1933-43; Erich Leinsdorf, 1943-46; George Szell, 1946-70; Lorin Maazel, 1972-82; Christoph von Dohnányi, 1984-2002; and Franz Welser-Möst, since 2002. The opening in 1931 of Severance Hall as the Orchestra’s permanent home, with later acoustic refinements and remodeling of the hall under Szell’s guidance, brought a special pride to the ensemble and its hometown, as well as providing an enviable and intimate acoustic environment in which to develop and refine the Orchestra’s artistry. Touring performances throughout the United States and, beginning in 1957, to Europe and across the globe have confirmed Cleveland’s place among the world’s top orchestras. Year-round performances became a reality in 1968 with the opening of Blossom Music Center, one of the most beautiful and acoustically admired outdoor concert facilities in the United States. 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.

Libretto by JOSEPH GREGOR Music by RICHARD STRAUSS

SEVERANCE HALL

MAY 27 Wednesday MAY 30 Saturday

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

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

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

marks Franz Welser-Möst’s thirteenth year as music director of The Cleveland Orchestra, with the future of this acclaimed partnership now extending into the next decade. Under his direction, the Orchestra is hailed for its continuing artistic excellence, is broadening and enhancing its community programming at home in Northeast Ohio, is presented in a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, and has re-established itself as an important operatic ensemble. With a commitment to music education and the Northeast Ohio community, Franz Welser-Möst has taken The Cleveland Orchestra back into public schools with performances in collaboration with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. He has championed new programs, such as a community-focused Make Music! initiative and a series of “At Home” neighborhood residencies designed to bring the Orchestra and citizens together in new ways. Under Mr. Welser-Möst’s leadership, The Cleveland Orchestra has established a recurring biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall and appears regularly at Switzerland’s Lucerne Festival. Together, they have also appeared in residence at Suntory Hall in Tokyo, Japan, and at the Salzburg Festival, where a 2008 residency included five sold-out performances of a staged production of Dvořák’s opera Rusalka. In the United States, an annual multi-week Cleveland Orchestra residency in Florida was inaugurated in 2007 and an ongoing relationship with New York’s Lincoln Center Festival began in 2011. To the start of this season, The Cleveland Orchestra has performed fourteen world and fifteen United States premieres under Franz Welser-Möst’s direction. In partnership with the Lucerne Festival, he and the Orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin, Toshio Hosokawa, and Matthias Pintscher. In addition, the Daniel R. Lewis Young Composer Fellow program has brought new voices to the repertoire, including Pintscher, Marc-André Dalbavie, Susan Botti, Julian Anderson, Johannes Maria Staud, Jörg Widmann, Sean Shepherd, and Ryan Wigglesworth. Franz Welser-Möst has led annual opera performances during his tenure in Cleveland, re-establishing the Orchestra as an important operatic ensemble. Following six seasons of opera-in-concert presentations, he brought fully staged opera back to Severance Hall with a three-season cycle of Zurich Opera productions of the Mozart-Da Ponte operas. He led concert performances of Strauss’s Salome at Severance Hall and at Carnegie Hall in May 2012 and in May 2014 led an innovative madeP H OTO BY S ATO S H I AOYAG I

for-Cleveland production of Leoš Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen at Severance Hall. They present performances of Richard Strauss’s Daphne in May 2015. As a guest conductor, Mr. Welser-Möst enjoys a close and productive relationship with the Vienna Philharmonic. Recent performances with the Philharmonic include a critically-acclaimed production of Strauss’s Der Rosenkavalier at the 2014 Salzburg Festival as well as appearances at New York’s Carnegie Hall, at the Lucerne Festival, and in concert at La Scala Milan. During the 2014-15 season, he returns to Europe for a tour of Scandinavia with the Philharmonic, and will also lead them in a new production of Beethoven’s Fidelio at Salzburg in 2015. He led the Philharmonic’s celebrated annual New Year’s Day concert in 2011 and 2013, viewed by tens of millions as telecast in seventy countries worldwide. From 2010 to 2014, Franz Welser-Möst served as general music director of the Vienna State Opera. His partnership with the company included an acclaimed new production of Wagner’s Ring cycle with stage director Sven-Eric Bechtolf, and critically-praised new productions of Hindemith’s Cardillac, Janáček’s Katya Kabanova and From the House of the Dead, Puccini’s The Girl of the Golden West, and Verdi’s Don Carlo, as well as performances of a wide range of other operas, particularly of works by Wagner and Richard Strauss, including Tristan and Isolde and Parsifal, and Der Rosenkavalier and Ariadne auf Naxos. Prior to his years with the Vienna State Opera, Mr. Welser-Möst led the Zurich Opera across a decade-long tenure, leading more than forty new productions and culminating in three seasons as general music director (2005-08). Franz Welser-Möst’s recordings and videos have won major awards, including a Gramophone Award, Diapason d’Or, Japanese Record Academy Award, and two Grammy nominations. With The Cleveland Orchestra, he has created DVD recordings of live performances of five of Bruckner’s symphonies, and is in the midst of a new project recording major works by Brahms. With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony and an all-Wagner album. DVD releases on the EMI label have included Mr. Welser-Möst leading Zurich Opera productions of The Marriage of Figaro, Così fan tutte, Don Giovanni, Der Rosenkavalier, Fierrabras, and Peter Grimes. For his talents and dedication, Mr. Welser-Möst has received honors that include the Vienna Philharmonic’s “Ring of Honor” for his longstanding personal and artistic relationship with the ensemble, as well as recognition from the Western Law Center for Disability Rights, honorary membership in the Vienna Singverein, appointment as an Academician of the European Academy of Yuste, a Gold Medal from the Upper Austrian government for his work as a cultural ambassador, a Decoration of Honor from the Republic of Austria for his artistic achievements, and the Kilenyi Medal from the Bruckner Society of America. He is the co-author of Cadences: Observations and Conversations, published in a German edition in 2007.

The Cleveland Orchestra’s third neighborhood residency is taking place on Cleveland’s southeast side. The Cleveland Orchestra At Home in Broadway Slavic Village began in earnest with a Neighborhood Summit on March 21, and continues with a variety of community activities, musical performances, and education presentations in the neighborhood to early June. The centerpiece is a free community concert by The Cleveland Orchestra on Friday, April 10 — broadcast live on radio WCLV 104.9, and recorded for delayed telecast on ideastream/WVIZ on Friday, April 17, at 10:00 p.m. Free tickets to the concert were soldout within hours of being released to the public on March 21. Broadway Slavic Village was chosen for this year’s residency 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 forecloat home sure 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,” 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!” For a complete listing of this year’s “At Home” residency events, please visit: www.clevelandorchestra/slavicvillage.

Special effort and concert in “Cancer Blows” event to raise money and awareness Cleveland Orchestra principal trumpet Michael Sachs joined together early in March with other principal trumpet players from many U.S. orchestras alongside trumpet legends from classical and pop genres — including Arturo Sandoval, Doc Severinsen, and Lee Loughnane (trumpeter from the band Chicago) — for a series of events and a special benefit concert to raise money and awareness in the fight against cancer. Titled “Cancer Blows,” the March 4 concert in Dallas was presented by the Ryan Anthony Foundation, created by Cleveland Institute of Music alum and Dallas Symphony principal trumpet Ryan Anthony. The evening featured live and video performances with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Anthony was diagnosed with multiple myeloma cancer and went through a bone marrow transplant two years ago. His cancer is in remission and this special large-scale benefit concert was designed to raise awareness for this type of cancer and raise funds for research.

Maltzes’ generosity recognized with special commemorative plaque at Severance Hall A special plaque was dedicated at Severance Hall surrounding Saturday evening’s concert on April 11. The plaque permanently commemorates the extraordinary leadership and generosity of the Maltz Family Foundation, created by Milton and Tamar Maltz (pictured above with a group of Cleveland Orchestra Student Ambassadors), for their $20 million endowment gift to start The Cleveland Orchestra’s Center for Future Audiences. The plaque is located in the vestibule between the BogomolnyKozerefski Grand Foyer and the left entrance to the Concert Hall on the main orchestra level. The gift from the Maltz Family Foundation was announced in 2010, with the new Center designed to fund ongoing programs to encourage interest among young people to attend the Orchestra’s symphonic concerts. Center-funded programs focus on addressing barriers to attending Cleveland Orchestra concerts at Severance Hall and Blossom Music Center through subsidized tickets and promotional offers. Over 130,000 young people have attended Orchestra concerts since these programs began in 2011.

INTRODUCING THE CONCERTS

is probably not quite that. Three of the pieces are certifiably by this great composer, who towered over the Classical era along with his shorter-lived contemporary Mozart. The fourth work (on the evening concerts only) is a concerto for two horns, which was once thought to be by Haydn, but is almost certainly not. (The provenance of musical works from the past is sometimes a tricky and difficult thing to pin down with absolute assurance.) The program begins with an overture from one of Haydn’s many operas — a genre he is not well known for today, but in which he wrote many a score during the middle years of his career. For these first two pieces, guest conductor Matthew Halls conducts from a harpsichord, often used in the period to enhance orchestral texture. A keyboard concerto is also featured, written (in Haydn’s fo performance either by the then ubiquitous harpsichord view) for wi the just-getting-started fortepiano (the forerunner of or with tod today’s piano). The program ends with one of Haydn’s great “London” symphonies, from a series he wrote for that great city and which clearly shows his skills as “father of the symphony,” in his role of unifying and streamlinin the form to be the central form for concerts right up to ing o day. our —Eric Sellen

Introducing the Concert

37


Matthew Halls British conductor Matthew Halls first came to prominence as a harpsichordist, organist, and early music conductor. Since 2013, he has served as artistic director of the Oregon Bach Festival, while also appearing as a guest conductor with major symphony orchestras and opera companies. He is making his Severance Hall debut with this weekend’s concerts, having first led The Cleveland Orchestra as part of the 2014 Blossom Music Festival. Educated at Oxford University, Mr. Halls subsequently taught there for five years. Since that time, he has served as artistic director of the King’s Consort and the Retrospect Ensemble. In 2011, Matthew Halls appeared for the first time at the Oregon Bach Festival; this coming summer, the Festival launches the Berwick Academy for Historically Informed Performance under his leadership. Mr. Halls’s recent and upcoming conducting engagements include appearances with the Houston Symphony, Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, Philadelphia Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Washington D.C.’s National Symphony Orchestra. In Europe, his schedule includes concerts with the BBC Scottish Symphony, Bergen Philharmonic, Bremen Philharmonic, Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra, Iceland Symphony, Musica Viva Moscow, Royal Northern Sinfonia, RTE National Symphony, and the Tonkünstler Orchestra NÖ. Matthew Halls makes regular appearances with the Salzburg Mozarteum Orchestra, both in Austria and on tour. This season he is also leading concerts with the Adelaide, Melbourne, and West Australian symphony orchestras. Last season, he conducted the Concentus Musicus Wien at the Internationale Barocktage Stift Melk, marking the start of collaborations between that orchestra and a series of guest conductors. Matthew Halls’s operatic repertoire features works from the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras, and also extends to later compositions, including especially those of Benjamin Britten. He has led several of Handel’s operas at the Aalto-Musiktheater Essen, Bavarian State Opera, Central City Opera Colorado, Handelfestspiele Halle, Netherlands Opera, and the Salzburg Landestheater.  For Linn Records, Matthew Halls has recorded a set of four Bach harpsichord concertos conducted from the keyboard, and Bach’s Easter and Ascension oratorios, as well as award-winning albums of Purcell’s Sonatas in Three and Four Parts. His recording of Handel’s Parnasso in Festa on Hyperion received the Stanley Sadie Handel Recording Prize.  With special thanks to the Cleveland Museum of Art for the gracious loan of the Dowd French harpsichord used in these performances.

HAYDN J O S E P H H AY D N

born March 31, 1732 Rohrau, Austria died May 31, 1809 Vienna

Severance Hall 2014-15

did not come from a particularly musical family, but he showed early promise when he began singing for the church choir in Rohrau, a small village in lower Austria. At age six, he moved to a nearby town to live and study with a relative who ran a school and choir, and at eight he was recruited for the choir school at St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, where he also studied keyboard and violin. His education ended when his voice broke at seventeen, and he left school to scrape by as a freelancer in Vienna, giving lessons and performing while continuing to teach himself composition. Haydn’s first stable employment was to serve as Kapellmeister to a Count Morzin, but within a few years that job dissolved amid the count’s financial distress. Then, at 29, Haydn received a lucrative job offer from Prince Paul Anton Esterházy, the head of one of Austria’s richest and most powerful noble families. The Esterházy court actually already had a Kapellmeister, the aging Gregor Werner, so Haydn took the title of Vice Kapellmeister. Prince Paul Anton died in 1762, not long after hiring Haydn, but his brother and successor, Prince Nikolaus Esterházy, proved to be an extraordinarily supportive patron, even if his musical appetites were at times overwhelming. Among his initial duties as Vice Kapellmeister, Haydn directed the twice-weekly performances of the Esterházy orchestra. Haydn composed about 25 symphonies during this period, as well as numerous concertos for violin, flute, horn, and other instruments, most of which have been lost. Overall, the situation was an ideal laboratory in which Haydn could hone his craft, and it is in those years that we can see the emergence of the composer who earned his nickname as “the father of the symphony.” Haydn ascended to the position of Kapellmeister upon About the Composer

Werner’s death in 1766 and then stayed with the Esterházy family full-time for another 25 years, until Prince Nikolaus died in 1790 and his son, Prince Anton, scaled back the court’s musical activities. Haydn spent much of that time at Esterháza, the summer palace modeled after Versailles that Prince Nikolaus built on the site of a remote hunting lodge. The court spent as many as ten months out of each year at the “summer” palace, and Haydn was expected to keep his patrons well entertained all that time, conducting up to 125 nights of operatic performances in a season, among many other musical activities. The isolated location and the constant demand for new music had a profound effect on Haydn’s work; as he later acknowledged, “In Esterháza I was forced to become original.” When Prince Anton disbanded the court orchestra, leaving Haydn with a modest pension and little work to do, it was just the moment that Johann Salomon, a German-born and London-based violinist, had been waiting for. He offered Haydn a generous sum to come spend a season in London, composing new symphonies and other works and presenting them on a concert series. London audiences adored Haydn, and his visit in 179192, as well as a follow-up journey in 1794-95, generated some of his most popular orchestral music, including the twelve “London” symphonies, his last works in that genre. While there, Haydn also soaked up the vibrant London musical scene and its penchant for grand, festive productions, above all Handel’s English-language oratorios, including Messiah and Israel in Egypt. Haydn returned from his second London trip more famous than ever in his native Austria. He was still Kapellmeister to the Esterházy family, now ruled by Prince Nikolaus II (grandson of Nikolaus I), but Haydn’s duties were reduced to providing one mass each year. He used his free time to concentrate on enormous oratorio projects — first The Creation in 1796-98, followed by The Seasons in 1799-1801 — adding yet another chapter to his long, diverse career. “Papa” Haydn died in 1809, having lived to see the influence of his work on Mozart (whom he cherished like a son), Beethoven (a onetime student and an eventual rival), and every other composer within earshot of Vienna. —Aaron Grad © 2015

At a Glance Haydn wrote this overture for his opera L'isola disabitata in 1779, and led the first performance of the opera on December 6 of that year at the Esterháza palace. This overture runs almost 10 minutes in performance. Haydn scored for an orchestra of flute, 2 oboes, bassoon, 2 horns, and strings. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this music for the first time at this week’s concerts.

for his symphonies and string quartets, but in his years at Esterháza he focused primarily on operas. A fire in November 1779 destroyed the palace’s opera house and Haydn’s harpsichord along with it (as well as many manuscript scores), but it did not prevent the court musicians from premiering Haydn’s latest opera on December 6, the name day of Prince Nikolaus. L’isola disabitata [The Deserted Island] was Haydn’s eighth opera for the Esterházy court, and his only full setting of a libretto by Metastasio, the ubiquitous Italian poet and master of the opera seria genre. (Gluck and Mozart were likewise among the hundreds of composers who reused the same Metastasio librettos.) This two-act chamber opera required only four singers, but it came with an elaborate back-story to set the stage. Thirteen years prior to the action, a shipwreck in the West Indies washed three characters onto an unpopulated island — Gernando, Costanza his wife, and her young sister, Silvia. They took refuge in a cove, only to have the misfortune of crossing paths with a band of pirates who kidnapped Gernando. A rescue party believed that the marauders had snatched the sisters as well, so they gave chase, not realizing that they had in fact left Costanza and Silvia behind on the deserted island, where they still remain at the start of the opera. Haydn’s overture matches the intensity of the opera’s dramatic setup, using a minor-key style he had perfected in his Sturm und Drang (“storm and stress”) symphonies from earlier in the decade. A slow introduction, full of tense intervals and drawn-out resolutions, releases into a fiery continuation that drives forward with throbbing eighth-notes. In a nod to the three-part overture format found in older Italian operas, the next section functions almost as an independent movement, shifting to the parallel major key and a new three-beat Allegretto tempo reminiscent of a refined minuet, before the aggressive mode returns to close the overture. —Aaron Grad © 2015

of music for the horn, as heard in the Horn Concerto No. 1 that is known to be authentic, and in the symphonies that take their nicknames from horn figures — Symphony No. 31 (“Hornsignal”) and Symphony No. 73 (“The Hunt”). It is less certain that he composed the much-loved Horn Concerto No. 2, and musicologists generally agree that he did not compose the Concerto for Two Horns in E-flat major that often appears under his name. The Concerto for Two Horns was only discovered in 1954, with a title page that contained a misspelled attribution to Michael Haydn, Joseph’s younger brother. The discoverer, Carl de Nys, concluded that the name of Michael Haydn was added sometime after the score was copied out; de Nys also saw a potential link between this score and a lost Concerto for Two Horns in the same key that appears in a catalog of Joseph Haydn’s works. But further evidence proved that the newly found score differed significantly from what was known of the lost Haydn concerto, and the theory that one was a draft for the other is little more than conjecturing without facts. Michael Haydn might actually be the true author of this Concerto for Two Horns in E-flat major, but a more promising candidate is Antonio Rosetti, a contemporary of Haydn and Mozart and a leading composer of horn music. Before he adopted the Italian version of his name, he was Franz Anton Rösler, born in 1750 in Bohemia. One significant clue is that he worked for sixteen years at the Oettingen-Wallerstein court, in whose library the “Haydn” concerto was discovered. Rosetti also composed some two dozen horn concertos, including seven for two horn soloists, in a style that lines up well with the mystery concerto. Even before the Haydns and Rosetti, there was a long history of concertos written for pairs of horns, with examples dating back to Antonio Vivaldi and Georg Philipp Telemann. These double concertos reflected a broader tradition of using horns in tandem, with the first player specializing in the instrument’s higher overtones, where the available pitches are closer together, and with the second player staying in the lower partials, traversing the characteristic leaps that make up hunting About the Music

signals and bugle calls. The Concerto for Two Horns in E-flat major begins with the type of arpeggio that is characteristic of the leaping lower range of the horn. When the soloists take over from the orchestra, their roles are intertwined, with each offering smooth, linear melodies as well as jumping “horn call” figures. The composer does not shy away from the chromatic pitches that fall between natural overtones, requiring deft use of a handstopping technique that had only recently been discovered in Haydn’s time to access those notes. (Today, the soloists have the option to use modern valve horns instead.) The middle movement takes the form of a Romanze, a style associated with simple, heartfelt vocal music of an earlier era. The horns deliver the opening melody harmonized in thirds, gliding over a sparse accompaniment that withholds the entrance of the bass instruments. A central contrasting section moves to the unexpected key of C-flat major, creating a subtle harmonic jolt in an otherwise placid movement. The main theme of the Rondo finale introduces a raucous, outdoor mood, with the first horn outlining a typical horn arpeggio while the second horn accompanies with manic leaps. Contrasting episodes offer opportunities for smooth lyricism to counter the boisterous primary material.

At a Glance This horn concerto was most likely written in the 1780s or 1790s. The score was rediscovered in 1954, in the court library at Harburg, Bavaria, with the score labelled by a later hand as being by “Michael Heiden.” At one time, it was thought to possibly be a missing double horn concerto by Joseph Haydn, but this now seems less likely. It may be the work of Antonio Rosetti (1750-1792). This concerto runs about 20 minutes in performance. It is scored for 2 oboes, 2 horns, and strings, plus the 2 solo horns. The Cleveland Orchestra is performing this music for the first time at this week’s concerts.

Piano Concerto No. 11 in D major, Hob.XVIII:11 composed circa 1780-83

by

F. Joseph

HAYDN

born March 31, 1732 Rohrau, Austria died May 31, 1809 Vienna

Severance Hall 2014-15

H AY D N ’ S O P P O R T U N I T I E S to profit from his music broadened in 1779, when he negotiated a new contract with the Esterházy family that permitted him to sell scores more freely. He soon cashed in on his popularity around Europe, offering music to publishers in Vienna, Paris, London, and other cultural capitals. Haydn’s Piano Concerto in D major (No. 11) comes from that period of outward expansion. Composed sometime between 1780 and 1783, Haydn arranged for it to be performed and published in Paris in 1784. At a time of rapid transition among keyboard instruments, Haydn covered his bases by labeling it as a concerto either for the older harpsichord or for the newer fortepiano, the forerunner of the modern concert grand piano. Appearing as a keyboard virtuoso was not a calling card for Haydn as it was for Bach (and his sons), Mozart, or Beethoven; as a result, keyboard concertos account for a tiny sliver of Haydn’s output. Many of the surviving examples are of dubious authenticity, but the concerto cataloged (long after the composer’s death) as No. 11 is definitely Haydn’s own. The opening Vivace movement is a charming example of the galant style then in fashion, with tuneful melodies and unclouded harmonies. In the slow movement, marked Un poco adagio, the music comes closer to the new style of piano concerto that Mozart was approaching at the same time in Vienna, in which the soloist functions almost as an operatic protagonist, delivering singing melodies and conversing with the accompanying players. A central episode in a contrasting minor key further deepens the emotional impact. The finale brings the concerto’s flashiest music, which Haydn labeled a Hungarian Rondo. Scholars have actually identified his source material as a Croatian folksong, of the type he would have been likely to hear in the ethnically diverse region of Austria where he grew up (with Hungary just to the east) or when he was at Esterháza (built on a site that is now within the modern borders of Hungary). The piano part makes liberal use of the acciaccatura ornament, or “crushed note,” in which a grace note approaches the melodic note from a halfstep below. It creates a jangly effect on the piano, not unlike About the Music

At a Glance Haydn’s authorship of this Concerto in D major, cataloged as No. 11 of his keyboard concertos, was disputed for a time. Recent scholarship, however, has confirmed that Haydn wrote it, most likely in the early 1780s (possibly as early as 1779). Documentation about when it was first performed is ambiguous; one theory holds that it may have been introduced in Vienna as

early as 1780. It was published in 1784 in Paris. Haydn marked the score as being suitable for either the older harpsichord or the newer fortepiano (forerunner of the modern piano). This concerto runs about 20 minutes in performance. In addition to solo keyboard, Haydn scored it for an orchestral ensemble of 2 oboes, 2 horns, and strings.

The Cleveland Orchestra first performed this Haydn Piano Concerto in October 1965, with Louis Lane conducting and Armenta Adams as soloist. It has been programmed on only three further sets of concerts, most recently in the spring of 2011 with soloist Emanuel Ax, conducted by Franz Welser-Möst.

He is making his Cleveland Orchestra debut with this weekend’s concerts. Born in Montreal and now a resident of Boston, Marc-André Hamelin began piano studies at age five. He later enrolled at Montreal’s École de musique Vincent-d’Indy and at Philadelphia’s Temple University. He is the recipient of a lifetime achievement award from the German Record Critics’ Association, and was given the Echo Klassik’s 2014 Instrumentalist of the Year Award. He is also an Officer of the Order of Canada, a Chevalier de l’Ordre du Québec, and a member of the Royal Society of Canada. Mr. Hamelin’s recent and upcoming engagements include performances in North America with the orchestras of Chicago, Los Angeles, Montreal, New Jersey, New York, Oregon, Philadelphia, Seattle, Utah, and Vancouver, as well as orchestral appearances in Denmark, France, and London. As a recitalist, he is appearing in Amsterdam, Antwerp, Aspen, Berlin, Birmingham (England), Copenhagen, London, Lucerne, Moscow, Munich, and Paris, as well as closer to home in Montreal, Toronto, New York, and Philadelphia, and in California. He will also play at the Duszniki, La Roque d’Anthéron, and Verbier festivals. Marc-André Hamelin’s wide repertoire is represented by his performance of the world premiere of Mark Anthony Turnage’s Piano Concerto last season in Rotterdam, and his recent ten-concert tour of North America playing Haydn’s Piano Concerto No. 11 in D major with Les Violons du Roy. Active as a chamber musician, Mr. Hamelin performs with the Pacifica and Takács quartets and with Emanuel Ax, Martin Fröst, and Anthony Marwood. He records exclusively for Hyperion Records, where his discography of more than fift y albums includes concertos and works for solo piano by composers including Alkan, Brahms, Chopin, Godowsky, Liszt, Medtner, Schumann, and Shostakovich. His most recent release, Schumann’s Waldszenen and Kinderszenen and Janáček’s On the Overgrown Path, was the June 2014 Album of the Month in both Gramophone and BBC Music magazines.  Among his other recordings is an album of his own compositions, Hamelin: Études, which received a 2010 Grammy nomination (his ninth) and a first prize from the German Record Critics’ Association.

Symphony No. 101 (“The Clock”) in D major, Hob.I:101 composed circa 1793-94

by

F. Joseph

HAYDN

born March 31, 1732 Rohrau, Austria died May 31, 1809 Vienna

Severance Hall 2014-15

H AY D N U N D E R S T O O D that London audiences favored splashy and spectacular entertainment — ranging from revivals of Handel oratorios involving hundreds of performers to popular caricatures such as The Beggar’s Opera. In the second set of his “London” symphonies in particular, Haydn seemed to respond to English tastes by writing music with extra panache. He added the robust tone of clarinets in all but one of these symphonies, and he incorporated flashy gestures that inspired nicknames still associated with several works: Military (Symphony No. 100), The Clock (Symphony No. 101), and Drum Roll (Symphony No. 103). Haydn began his Symphony in D major, now known as No. 101, in Vienna and completed it in London in 1794. Considering the adjustment period new music often endures before being embraced by the public, the immediate success Haydn achieved was remarkable, as evidenced by the review published in the Morning Chronicle two days after the premiere. The critic declared, “As usual the most delicious part of the entertainment was a new grand Overture [Symphony] by HAYDN; the inexhaustible, the wonderful, the sublime HAYDN! The first two movements were encored; and the character that pervaded the whole composition was heartfelt joy. Every new Overture he writes, we fear, till it is heard, he can only repeat himself; and we are every time mistaken.” As with most of the “London” symphonies, No. 101 begins with a slow introduction. This subdued Adagio in D minor builds anticipation for the main body of the first movement, which gallops in with five-measure phrases that spill over the expected subdivisions of four measures at a time. The Andante movement, with the “tick-tock” flavor of its accompaniment, is responsible for the symphony’s nickname “The Clock.” The graceful melody and steady accompaniment form the basis of a set of variations, including a dramatic, minor-key escapade that recalls the Sturm und Drang (“storm and stress”) of Haydn’s earlier writing. As a composer, Haydn deserves credit for making the minuet an indispensible component of the symphony, expanding the structure from earlier three-movement models. The minuet About the Music

55


for No. 101 is one of his richest, with a full-throated scoring that includes trumpets and timpani. In the contrasting trio section, a running motif recalls the main theme of the first movement. The fourth-movement finale packs a typical Haydn punch — it throttles back to just strings in a piano dynamic for the first fift y-five measures, and then unleashes the full forte power of the orchestra right at a major point of arrival, with the last note of the earlier phrase doubling as the first note in a new motif. The same dovetailing trick binds another quiet string passage to an even bolder mood change, with a sudden shift to the minor key blasted by the entire ensemble at a fortissimo dynamic. Later, a hushed fugue volleys among the string sections en route to a grand arrival, ushering in one last statement of the main theme. —Aaron Grad © 2015 At a Glance Haydn began this Symphony in D major (later cataloged as No. 101) in Vienna in 1793 between his two concertizing trips to England. He completed the work in London and presented it for the first time on March 3, 1794, at one of J.P. Salomon’s concerts at Hanover Square. It was almost immediately given the nickname

“The Clock” because of the ticktock accompaniment figures sounding through much of the second movement. This symphony runs about 30 minutes in performance. Haydn scored it for an orchestra of 2 flutes, 2 oboes, 2 clarinets, 2 bassoons, 2 horns, 2 trumpets, timpani, and strings.

The Cleveland Orchestra first performed Haydn’s Symphony No. 101 in November 1931 under Rudolph Ringwall. It has been performed occasionally since that time, most recently in May 1994 conducted by Christoph von Dohnányi.

Today, with the support of many generous individual, foundation, corporate, and governmental funding partners, the Orchestra’s educational and community programs reach more than 60,000 young people and adults annually, helping to foster a love of music and a lifetime of involvement with the musical arts. On these pages, we share photographs from a sampling of these many programs.

The lotus blossom is the symbol of the Heritage Society. It represents eternal life and recognizes the permanent benefits of legacy gifts to The Cleveland Orchestra’s endowment. Said to be Elisabeth Severance’s favorite flower, the lotus is found as a decorative motif in nearly every public area of Severance Hall.

The 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 130,000 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.

Giving Societies

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

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.

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.

In the spirit of last season’s innovative and critically-acclaimed production of The Cunning Little Vixen, director James Darrah will transform the concert hall into a tableau of nature with staging and costumes inspired by ancient Greek theater. 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. Sponsor: Litigation Management, Inc. and supported by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation

When describing his New World Symphony, Dvořák said “I tried to write only in the spirit of those national American melodies,” but this symphony is clearly an expression of both the Old World and the New — a musical postcard home to Europe about new ways and ideas in America. The concerts also feature Jörg Widmann’s tantalizingly new Violin Concerto. Sponsors: Thompson Hine LLP KeyBank Fridays@7

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Franz Welser-Möst, conductor

THE CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA Charles Dutoit, conductor Paul Groves, tenor (as Faust) Ruxandra Donose, mezzo-soprano Christopher Feigum, baritone Willard White, bass Cleveland Orchestra Chorus Cleveland Orchestra Children’s Chorus

Charles Dutoit returns to lead Berlioz’s rarelyperformed masterpiece blending oratorio and opera into a compelling dramatic work. Faust makes his bargain with the devil and then meets the woman of his dreams, only to have their love tested by Faust’s own choices. Sung in French with projected English supertitles.

Beethoven was a lover of nature who delighted in frequent hikes in the countryside surrounding Vienna. The Sixth Symphony, nicknamed the “Pastoral,” is his most programmatic. Here you can hear the rolling of thunder, a joyous country dance, and the calling of a shepherd’s pipes. The concert also presents an amusing contrast in spirit, with Richard Strauss’s musical reflection on his comfortable domestic life, harmoniously conveying daily events and family life, including a musical portrait of his wife, their child, arguing, and making up. Sponsor: Hyster-Yale Materials Handling, Inc.
