Franz Welser-Möst brings the Cleveland Orchestra’s trademark power and richness to Orchestra Hall. Beethoven’s light and humorous Eighth Symphony and Sibelius’ romantic Second Symphony will showcase the orchestra’s lush sound. “The Clevelanders absolutely nailed it…ensemble playing was perfectly judged. The sheer musicality of the players’ work was a wonder” (Musical America).
