Albrecht, Znaider to Make Cleveland Orchestra Conducting Debuts in February 2014


Nikolaj Znaider and Marc Albrecht

Violinist/conductor Nikolaj Znaider and conductor Marc Albrecht are set to make their debuts at the podium of Severance Hall with the Cleveland Orchestra in February 2014.  The maestros will replace Pierre Boulez, who has, with regret, had to stand down due to health reasons.

Znaider will play/direct the orchestra on 6th – 8th February in a vibrant and varied programme featuring Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 3, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4 “Italian” and Elgar’s Enigma Variations.  Znaider will also lead the special Friday Morning: Znaider Plays Mozart concert, featuring the Mozart and Elgar works.

On 13th, 15th and 16th February, Albrecht will conduct a Mahler and Brahms programme full of romantic longing and musical creativity.  Featuring mezzo-soprano Alice Coote, the orchestra is set to perform Mahler’s “Blumine” movement from his First Symphony and Songs of a Wayfarer as well as Brahms’ Quartet in G minor, Op. 25 (arranged for orchestra by Arnold Schonberg).
