Schubert: Symphony No. 9 in C Major "The Great" - Křenek: Static and Ecstatic

The Cleveland Orchestra

Classical - Released October 2, 2020 | Cleveland Orchestra

Hi-Res Booklet
This new album is the second release from the conductor Franz Welser-Möst and his Cleveland Orchestra on Welser-Möst’s own label. It also marks their final performances before their entire tour around Europe and the UAE was cancelled due to coronavirus. This recording took place on March 12, 2020 in front of a few donors and staff members under Ohio’s strict state rules. This feeling permeates Franz Welser-Möst’s rendition of Andante con moto from Schubert’s 9th Symphony and it sounds as though the conductor is conscious of the fact that this would the last time he would be conducting his orchestra for a while. This gives the calm, quiet work a very personal twist. The album also includes a work by Ernst Krenek commissioned for the Swiss patron Paul Sacher in 1972. Static and Extatic consists of ten short movements for chamber orchestra, percussion and piano. They are like musical haikus, each one lasting between one and three minutes. They are written in a serial style and present a retrospective of Ernst Krenek’s compositional technique that he developed throughout his long career. The resulting atmosphere is unexpected, enchanting and truly poetic. © François Hudry/Qobuz

A New Century

Franz Welser-Möst

Classical - Released June 5, 2020 | Cleveland Orchestra

Hi-Res
As the inaugural release on its own recording label, The Cleveland Orchestra, A New Century offers six intriguing selections of music of old and new from across three centuries spanning three discs, including two world premiere recordings of works by 21st-century composers: Johannes Maria Staud and Bernd Richard Deutsch. André Grémillet, President and CEO of the Orchestra explains : " The repertoire has been chosen to highlight the breadth, depth and great artistic partnership now in its 18th year between Franz Welser-Möst and the Orchestra, with a particular focus on 20th and 21st century music.”. For his part Welser-Möst expresses in those terms : “In my career, I have found no better place in the world to work and create music than here in Cleveland, with The Cleveland Orchestra. From the beginning, I have been inspired by the musicians and the support and keen interest that the entire Cleveland community provides their Orchestra. The six pieces on this new recording are just a sampling of what we have accomplished together.” All was recorded in live performances at Cleveland’s Severance Hall during the past three years (2017 to 2019) and conducted by Franz Welser-Möst, whose contract as music director has been extended to 2027, bringing him to surpass the legendary George Szell as the longest-tenured music director in the ensemble’s history. © Qobuz

The Cleveland Orchestra has been widely applauded among the world’s handful of top orchestras. Having celebrated their 100th year in 2018, the ensemble launches its own recording label for its own second hundred years. The three-part album, featuring three pairs of works, is conducted and curated by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst. The tracks of the new release were all recorded in the acclaimed acoustic of Severance Hall, with the second volume of "A New Century" pairing the world premiere recording of Stromab by the Austrian composer Johannes Maria Staud with Richard Strauss’ earliest — and oft neglected — tone poem Aus Italien. Welser-Möst believes each of these composers was looking both to the past, and forward beyond their own time, bringing a through-line to musical history carried forward by of each new generation of innovation and change. By listening to Strauss and Staud together, we can begin to see how these different channels of thought progressed in the larger river of music’s evolution. ©: Cleveland Orchestra/PIAS
