Cleveland Orchestra
Wednesdays @ 8PM

Hosted by Robert Conrad, this broadcast series includes concerts by the Cleveland Orchestra in Severance Hall, at Knight Concert Hall in Miami, Blossom Music Center, the Musikverein, and St. Florian Abby in Austria. It also includes a concert by the Orchestra at the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam in an archival performance under the direction of George Szell. One of the highlights of the series is the Fate and Freedom Festival, conceived by Music Director Franz Welser-Möst, which pairs the symphonies of Beethoven and Shostakovich. Welser-Möst also leads the ensemble and violinist Julia Fischer in a Brahms Festival featuring the composer's most beloved overtures and symphonies. The series culminates in stunning presentation of Janácek's opera The Cunning Little Vixen.
