Cleveland Orchestra Concludes Severance Hall Season with ‘Vivid Picture of Death’

Doesn’t seem very nice of them, the Cleveland Orchestra, sending us off into the heat of summer – which is a time when things GROW, dammit – with a vivid picture of DEATH in our heads, what gives? WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS CLEVELAND ORCHESTRA. Well, as it happens, it’s not as bleak as all that – the CO just wants to cap its season with a triumphant burst of voices joining as one in harmonic cadence to swell outward the walls of Severance Hall and keep the chamber ringing lo unto autumn, when they shall once again return from their sojourns to regale. Yep: this evening and again on Saturday, under the stick of Robert Porco, the Cleveland Orchestra will join with its Chorus to throw down the glorious, ominous, foreboding Requiem of Verdi: ninety minutes, no intermission, can you handle it? The CO thinks you can. (FULL ARTICLE: Zachary Lewis, Cleveland Plain Dealer)
