The Cleveland Orchestra | Asia | March-April 2019
Mar 2019 - Apr 2019

Introduction

In March and April 2019, The Cleveland Orchestra and Music Director Franz Welser-Möst embark on their nineteenth tour together, with eleven performances scheduled across Asia in seven cities: Taipei, Macao, Shenzhen, Shanghai, Nanjing, Wuhan, and Beijing. The tour’s repertoire features four big musical works, two from the 19th century and two from the 20th, with Beethoven’s “Emperor” Piano Concerto (No. 5) with soloist Daniil Trifonov and Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony, alongside Richard Strauss’s epic tone poem Ein Heldenleben and Prokofiev’s enigmatic Symphony No. 3.

The 2019 Asia Tour is part of The Cleveland Orchestra’s 101st season and the 17th year of the ensemble’s acclaimed partnership with Franz Welser-Möst. This is the 19th international tour that Cleveland and Welser-Möst have presented together; it is their third trip together to Asia and features their first joint appearances in China. Askonas Holt is delighted to be working on the tour that includes the first Cleveland Orchestra performances in Macao, Shenzhen, Wuhan and Nanjing.
