This is the first season with Paavo Järvi as Chief Conductor and will clearly have a strong Nordic flavour, just as one would expect: Järvi will conduct (and record) all Tchaikovsky’s symphonies. To open the season (2,3 and 4 October), Sibelius’s epic Kullervo. And, as part of the Zurich Festival, a Shostakovich First Symphony, with the Elgar Cello Concerto in the first half (soloist Steven Isserlis). Järvi will also conduct Nielsen’s Second Symphony as part of his newly formed Conductors’ Academy (which he has started in his home town of Pärnu, Estonia). The season ends (19 and 21 June 2020) with a semi-staged performance of Fidelio.

Cleveland Orchestra in 2019-2020 

The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst announced details of their 2019-2020 season, with 76 concerts over 26 weeks. One significant highlight includes a festival designed to explore music and art that was banned, marginalized, and destroyed during the Nazis’ Degenerate Art movement, and the continuing impact of censorship on creative expression in society today. The festival will center on Alban Berg’s Lulu, one of the 20th century’s most influential operas, and includes partner programming with area arts institutions.
