Alan Held and Martina Janková star in a technologically and musically stunning production of Leoš Janáček's fable of nature and time.
Britten's Spring Symphony and Ryan Wigglesworth's Locke's Theatre join with Rudolf Buchbinder's thrilling account of Rachmaninov's Rhapsody, all conducted, at short notice, by Brett Mitchell, Franz Welser-Möst's assistant.
Are there musical works, even pieces generally considered to be masterpieces, that no longer can catch the listening public’s interest, no matter how expertly they are performed? I have been wrestling with this question since this weekend’s Cleveland Orchestra and Chorus performance of Haydn’s The Seasons.
When Cleveland Orchestra music director Franz Welser-Möst had to bow out of this past weekend’s performances of Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana due to a recent back injury, the orchestra’s talented young assistant conductor, James Feddeck, inherited a high-profile assignment. The set of four concerts had been heavily promoted and were sold out.
Over the past several years the Cleveland Orchestra has instituted a number of new concert opportunities to attract a new, younger audience, in response to the “greying” of its traditional audience base and the diminished interest in a season-long commitment to regular concerts.
