Cleveland Orchestra, Großes Festspielhaus (Salzburg)

Bartók, Strauss

The Cleveland Orchestra came to the Salzburg Festival as this year’s American guest, under longtime music director Franz Welser-Möst.  They have a gorgeous tone, but something was definitely missing – perhaps the virtuosity of the Philadelphians, who are in a league of their own among US orchestras, let alone the personality of the Vienna Philharmonic (always the criticism Cleveland’s previous long-time music director Christoph von Dohnányi had of this orchestra, and he obviously liked his own team!).   399 more words

Today I was looking up obituaries of Frederick Fennell (looking for birth and death dates, but that’s another story).  Fennell is known as the father of the mid-century band revival in North America with his fifties Mercury Living Presence recordings of existing band classics, played by his creation the “wind ensemble” (45 piece band with only one player on many parts), at Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY.  289 more words
