Fleming to mark Cleveland Orchestra’s decade in Miami
Renée Fleming will be the starry guest artist marking the tenth anniversary of the Cleveland Orchestra’s Miami residency.
The celebrated soprano will appear in a one-night event January 23, 2016 (vocal selections TBA). Franz Welser-Möst will also conduct the orchestra in Mozart’s “Haffner” Symphony (No. 35) and Ravel’s La Valse.
Cleveland’s 2015-16 residency will open November 13 and 14 with Giancarlo Guerrero conducting Saint-Saens’ Symphony No. 3 “Organ,” Chavez’s Symphony No. 2 and Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1 with soloist Johannes Moser.
Prefacing the Fleming event, Welser-Möst leads a mostly Tchaikovsky program January 21 and 22, including the Russian composer’s Symphony No. 1 “Winter Daydreams” and the Romeo and Juliet Overture. Leif Ove Andsnes performs Schumann’s Piano Concerto as the centerpiece.
The following week two Cleveland principals will be in the spotlight with concertmaster William Preucil and cellist Mark Kosower teaming up for Brahms’ “Double” Concerto. The program also includes Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 3.
The season will close March 17-19 with the world premiere of a work by composer Avner Dorman, commissioned by the Arsht Center to mark the ten-year anniversary of the Cleveland’s Miami residency. Guerrero is on the podium for a program that also includes Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 and Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2 with soloist Jean-Yves Thibaudet.
