SAINT-SAËNS ORGAN SYMPHONY

Friday, November 13, 2015 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, November 14, 2015 at 8 p.m.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor
Johannes Moser, cello

CHÁVEZ Symphony No. 2 (“Sinfonia India”)
SHOSTAKOVICH Cello Concerto No. 1
SAINT-SAËNS Symphony No. 3 (“Organ Symphony”)

“I gave everything to it I was able to give. What I have here accomplished, I will never achieve again.”
Saint-Saens said this of his final symphonic work – which has become a favorite not only for its beautiful melodies but for its dramatic use of the organ.

This striking work is paired with a Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto – perhaps the most difficult of all Cello Concertos that has become one of the 20th Century’s most popular.


TCHAIKOVSKY AND SCHUMANN

Thursday, January 21, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Friday, January 22, 2016 at 8 p.m.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Franz Welser-Möst, conductor
Leif Ove Andsnes, piano

TCHAIKOVSKY Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture
SCHUMANN Piano Concerto
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 1 (“Winter Dreams”)

Breathtaking passion.
Tchaikovsky’s gorgeous melodies are unsurpassed in music. Hear two of his shamelessly romantic works along with Schumann’s lyrical, introspective piano concerto performed by a pianist who The New York Times raves is “a pianist of magisterial elegance, power, and insight.”


BRAHMS AND PROKOFIEV

Friday, January 29, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, January 30, 2016 at 8 p.m.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Franz Welser-Möst, conductor
William Preucil, violin
Mark Kosower, cello

PROKOFIEV arr. Barshai Selections from Visions fugitives
BRAHMS Double Concerto (for violin and cello)
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 3

A love story set against a backdrop of black magic and exorcism.
Prokofiev’s Third Symphony was borne from his opera The Fiery Angel – with music depicting the ravings of demonic possession and medieval witchcraft and sorcery. Brahms’ lyrical, impassioned Double Concerto features the Orchestra’s concertmaster and principal cellist.


THIBAUDET PLAYS LISZT

Thursday, March 17, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Friday, March 18, 2016 at 8 p.m.
Saturday, March 19, 2016 at 8 p.m.

The Cleveland Orchestra
Giancarlo Guerrero, conductor
Jean-Yves Thibaudet, piano

BERNSTEIN Chichester Psalms
ORFF Carmina Burana

DORMAN New Work [WORLD PREMIERE, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts of Miami-Dade County Commission]
LISZT Piano Concerto No. 2
MAHLER Symphony No. 1 (“Titan”)

“Jean-Yves Thibaudet has a way of combining an often wild virtuosity with an almost relaxed grace that sets him apart from many other performers of his generation.” (Chicago Sun-Times).
Lizst’s second piano concerto is one of the most beautiful and stunning concertos of all time, full of emotion, virtuosity and passion. Concluding the program is Mahler’s ebullient, triumphant first symphony filled with the sounds of nature.
