8/2: Cleveland Orchestra and Kent/Blossom Chamber Orchestra

Posted By on Fri, Jul 31, 2009 at 8:00 AM

Two conductors, two orchestras, two intermissions and two symphonies mark a marathon program for the Cleveland Orchestra tonight. The orchestra’s assistant conductor Tito Muñoz warms up the crowd by leading the Kent/Blossom Chamber Orchestra in Schoenberg’s arrangement of Debussy’s Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun and Felix Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony. After the first intermission, the Cleveland Orchestra takes the stage with Jahja Ling for Mussorgsky’s Prelude to Khovanshchina, followed by Dmitri Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No.1, with Johannes Moser as soloist. After a second intermission, both orchestras team up under Ling’s direction for Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8. The show starts at 7 p.m. at Blossom Music Center (1145 W. Steels Corners Rd., Cuyahoga Falls, 216.231.1111). Tickets: $19-$82, kids under 12 are free on the lawn. — Michael Gill
