Tchaikovsky — Violin Concerto
Bernd Richard Deutsch — Intensity
Respighi — Roman Festivals

The Cleveland Orchestra returns to Hayes Hall for an afternoon of classical wonders. Now in its 20th year under the direction of Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, The Cleveland Orchestra is commonly regarded as one of America’s finest orchestras and frequently ranks among the greatest orchestras in the world. The program begins with Tchaikovsky’s impassioned Violin Concerto, arguably the Russian composer’s most creative work of all. Also on the program is Austrian composer Bernd Richard Deutsch’s Intensity, a bold and expressive work dedicated to Welser-Möst and premiered by the orchestra in January 2022. The program draws to a close with Respighi’s Roman Festivals, a musical tour through old Rome’s various festivals, evoking the clamor of an imperial Roman circus, the jubilant praise of traveling pilgrims, a joyous harvest celebration and raucous merrymaking in a city square.

All Visiting Orchestras tickets include same-day admission to the The Baker Museum. Special museum hours on day of performance: Noon-4pm. In addition, the doors to Hayes Hall will open 90 minutes prior to this performance. Arrive early to enjoy the exhibitions and light fare available at Heidi's Place.

The Visiting Orchestras series is generously sponsored by Judy and Verne Istock.

Franz Welser-Möst


Franz Welser-Möst began his tenure as Music Director of The Cleveland Orchestra in 2002 and has extended his contract through the orchestra’s centennial in 2018. Under his direction, the Cleveland Orchestra is enhancing its community programming, presenting a series of ongoing residencies in the United States and Europe, continuing its historic championship of new composers through commissions and premieres and re-establishing itself as an important operatic ensemble. Concurrently with his post in Cleveland, Welser-Möst became General Music Director of the Vienna State Opera in September 2010.

Under Welser-Möst’s leadership, the Cleveland Orchestra has established an ongoing biennial residency in Vienna at the famed Musikverein concert hall, and at the Lucerne Festival in Switzerland. Artistic highlights of Welser-Möst’s first nine seasons as Music Director in Cleveland including thirteen world and fifteen United States premieres under his direction. Through the Roche Commissions project, he and the orchestra have premiered works by Harrison Birtwistle, Chen Yi, Hanspeter Kyburz, George Benjamin and Toshio Hosokawa in partnership with the Lucerne Festival and Carnegie Hall.
