1/14: Cleveland Orchestra

Posted By on Wed, Jan 13, 2010 at 10:14 AM

A decade ago, violinist Leila Josefowicz spent a year as the face of Chanel’s Allure perfume. If that sounds somewhat frivolous for a classical musician (and a child prodigy at that), Josefowicz is anything but. She made her concert debut when she was eight, playing Max Bruch’s Romantic first violin concerto, not some easily metered thing by Mozart or Vivaldi. Now 32, she’s long made the transition from prodigy to seasoned pro, and her recent repertoire has emphasized new music, including three world premieres last year. Tonight and Saturday, she’s performing Thomas Adès’ 2005 violin concerto Concentric Paths with the Cleveland Orchestra, giving local audiences a preview of what she and the orchestra will take on the road to Indiana and Florida next week. Also on the program: Richard Strauss’ Don Juan and Johannes Brahms’ Symphony No. 2. As Chanel once said of its perfume, “Difficult to define, impossible to resist.” Showtime is 8 p.m. at Severance Hall (11001 Euclid Ave., 216.231.1111). Tickets: $31-$117. — Michael Gill
