•A programming change from The Cleveland Orchestra
•Registration open for Guitar Society’s guitar orchestras
•Almanac: the stylistic breadth of Frank Bridge
Yesterday afternoon, The Cleveland Orchestra announced a change to its program scheduled for February 2-5. Cellist Truls Mørk has withdrawn due to a muscle injury, so Esa-Pekka Salonen’s Cello Concerto will be replaced by Andrew Norman’s Sustain, led by previously announced guest conductor Klaus Mäkelä. The rest of the program — Debussy’s Images and Ravel’s Boléro — remains unchanged. (Pictured: Norman and Mäkelä.)
Registration is open until January 23 for the Cleveland Classical Guitar Society’s spring 2023 guitar orchestras. Those include one ensemble aimed at advanced guitarists, and another for beginner-to-intermediate players. Rehearsals begin in late February. More information here.
