The Cleveland Orchestra with Franz Welser-Möst, Music Director & Yuja Wang, piano

“The Cleveland sound was perfectly balanced, embedded with deep cultural intellect.” – China Times

The Cleveland Orchestra is considered one of the country’s “Big Five” and ranking within the uppermost echelon of orchestras around the world. Music Director Franz Welser-Möst is among today’s most distinguished conductors. The 2021 season marks his 19th year as music director of the Orchestra, with the future of this acclaimed partnership extending into the next decade. The New York Times declared Cleveland under Welser-Möst’s direction to be the “best American orchestra” for its virtuosity, elegance of sound, variety of color, and chamber-like musical cohesion. Under his direction, The Cleveland Orchestra has been praised for its inventive programming, its ongoing support for new musical works, and for its innovative approach to semi-staged and staged opera presentations. The Orchestra has also been hugely successful in building up a new and, notably, a young audience through groundbreaking programs involving families, students, universities, and cross-community partnerships.

Performing with the Orchestra will be the pianistic sensation, Yuja Wang. Critical superlatives and audience ovations have continuously followed Yuja Wang’s dazzling career. The Beijing-born pianist, celebrated for her charismatic artistry and captivating stage presence, was named Musical America’s Artist of the Year in 2017.
