Digital Streaming Premiere: Thursday, November 12 at 7:00 p.m. ET Available on-demand until February 10, 2021 The Cleveland Orchestra Franz Welser-Möst, conductor Emanuel Ax, piano HAYDN Piano Concerto in D Major BARTÓK Divertimento for Strings Bartók’s Divertimento was written as a commission for the Basel Chamber Orchestra and conductor Paul Sacher. Its three movements are strongly in the Bartókian vein, unfolding as a marvelous mixing together of Modern and Romantic — blending chamber-like intimacy with orchestral strength, caustic bite with yearning restraint, lyricism with argumentative thrust. 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.
