Haydn's Miracle

When: Thu., May 18 2017

Part of the set of symphonies that Haydn wrote on his first trip to London, Symphony No. 96 is notable not only because it is so elegant but also because a huge chandelier fell from the ceiling during its premiere performance; no one was injured, and the piece acquired its nickname, the "Miracle." Internationally renowned pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard joins the Cleveland Orchestra for tonight's performance at 7:30 at Severance Hall. An hour before the concert, composer Anthony Cheung, whose new work, Topos, receives its world premiere at the concert, joins Rabbi Roger C. Klein of The Temple-Tifereth Israel for "Meet the Composer," the pre-concert talk. Tickets start at $29, and performances repeat at 11 a.m. tomorrow (with a different pre-concert talk, and minus the Cheung piece) and at 8 p.m. on Saturday. (Niesel)
