The Cleveland Orchestra: 51st Broadcast Season


In this 51th Season of Cleveland Orchestra broadcasts, we present Orchestra concerts under the direction of Franz Welser-Möst and highly respected guest conductors such as Alan Gilbert and Jane Glover. We also visit the archives to share some outstanding performances conducted by the late Lorin Maazel; long-time guest conductor Pierre Boulez, who died in January 2016; Louis Lane, former Cleveland Orchestra Resident Conductor, who passed away in February; the great Leopold Stokowski; Yehudi Menuhin, whose centenary we celebrate this year; and by Music Director Emeritus Christoph von Dohnányi, who is still actively conducting. The season includes the world premiere of a work by Avner Doman, Dvořák’s rarely performed Piano Concerto and his Stabat Mater, the Concerto Round of the prestigious Cleveland International Piano Competition, and so much more!
