Be aware the bar prices at the lobby are high. $11.00 plus tip for a glass of wine! $13.00 plus tip for sparkling wine. Plus ticket price, and parking? An expensive venture!

The weather was cool. I wore I was way over dressed. A nice sweater and Levi look would have done it.

Only attended the last part on Shashtakovitch piece which was played beautifully. Very enthusiastic audience that gave standing ovation in hopes of encore that did not happen.

The Cleveland Smyphony lived up to its reputation.The Finnih composer's piece was quite strange to my ears, but hearing it ONCE was a broadening esperience. Either of the other symphonies were alonean evening well spent!

Quotes & Highlights

There will be a pre-concert lecture by Dr. Burton Karson at 7:00p.



Mendelssohn: Symphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 56, Scottish

Saariaho: Orion

Shostakovich: Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 54

Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Franz Welser-Möst became General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010. In July 2011, the Bruckner Society of America awarded him the Julio Kilenyi Medal of Honor, due to his long-standing advocacy of the music of Bruckner.

The 2011-12 season marks the tenth year of the Orchestra’s partnership with Franz Welser-Möst. Together they have earned the orchestra unprecedented residencies in the United States and in Europe, including a biennial residency at the prestigious Musikverein concert hall in Vienna—the first of its kind by an American orchestra.
