Since its first recording session in 1924, The Cleveland Orchestra has been among the most acclaimed and recorded orchestras in the world. The Orchestra’s performances have been heard by millions through radio and television broadcasts, on LPs, CDs, DVDs, and via internet downloads.
Schubert's "The Great" and Křenek
Released Oct. 2, 2020
This new release features The Cleveland Orchestra’s final two performances from March 2020, just as the coronavirus shut down concerts around the world. Music Director Franz Welser-Möst pairs two contrasting works, from the 19th and 20th centuries. In high resolution audio, recording live at Severance Hall.
A New Century
Released June 5, 2020
Featuring six new recordings that proudly showcase the partnership between The Cleveland Orchestra and music director Franz Welser-Möst, A New Century offers worldwide access to this acclaimed ensemble's evolving artistry — and marks the launch of its own record label.
Franz Welser-Möst has added to an extensive and widely-praised catalog of audio recordings made during the tenures of the ensemble’s former music directors. He has created DVD recordings of live performances of five of Bruckner’s symphonies, presented in three acoustically distinctive venues (the Abbey of St. Florian in Austria, Vienna’s Musikverein, and Severance Hall).
Franz and the Orchestra have also created a set of Brahms orchestral works, including the four symphonies, two piano concertos, and violin concerto. With Cleveland, he has also released a recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony as well as an all-Wagner album featuring soprano Measha Brueggergosman. In addition, in recent seasons the Orchestra has recorded a series of albums with longtime guest artist Mitsuko Uchida.
