Schnittkes virtuosic and bravura concerto is performed by Yefim Bronfman, a Cleveland favorite, playing music filled with wry humor and Shostakovich-inspired sarcasm and beauty. For this concert, Beethovens Harp quartet is expanded to an orchestra of strings, showcasing The Cleveland Orchestras extraordinary ensemble work and artistry. (The Harp nickname comes from plucked pizzicato sections in the first movement, but only hint at the beautiful verse-like melodies throughout this piece.)All of The Cleveland Orchestra: IN FOCUS concerts will be recorded live at Severance Hall and will be available for subscribers, donors, and Adella Premium members to stream through Adella, available online at adella.live and through a variety of digital platforms.Text TCO to 216-238-0883 to read digital program notes.Join the conversation about this episode on this events discussion tab!: Yefim Bronfman at Severance Hall in 2019, by @mastroianniphotography See Less
