A brief history of the Cleveland Orchestra

It would be difficult to find a city less likely than Cleveland [Ohio] to host one of the greatest orchestras in the world. Even in its heyday as a manufacturing powerhouse, beginning in 1900 and lasted until a little after mid-century – the city is home to steel plants, auto assembly plants, and Nela Park General Electric – the city pales in comparison to many their neighbors in the Midwest as Detroit and Pittsburgh. Later, a reputation for ineptitude was won because it was the first major US city to declare bankruptcy, and its primary running water (from the Cuyahoga River) celebrates burned down in the 1970s because of rampant pollution.

All municipal history past aside, however, the Cleveland Orchestra remains high in the world of classical music. The organization was founded in 1918 by a group of local citizens Adella Prentiss Hughes led by a professional pianist and budding entrepreneur whose efforts to create a classic set citywide first succeeded. She convinced of Russia Nikolai Sokoloff original driver leave his post in San Francisco to become the musical director of the orchestra. It was one of the first drivers in North America to open auditions for women and insisted that they receive the same pay as their male counterparts. Sokoloff remained with the Cleveland Orchestra until 1932.

Beethoven was deaf?

Let’s put aside everything we have said about Beethoven and consider this issue. It is an ugly question that probably will make the assault, but no less interesting.

It looks very promising, but we really can not say definitely whether it is genuine. This is where this position begins to look like a conspiracy theory, but rest assured, I’m just trying to use an example to make a larger philosophical question.

Beethoven’s greatest legacy may be the development of the idea of ​​the way we think of artists. His music has broken the traditional boundaries and the origin of the idea, very special melancholic artist (as opposed to the old craft status composers). At that time, his music was very progressive and very criticized. This does not mean that his music was bad, it was probably quite surprising, however, was not what people were used to, and people accept progress, you need to think it’s worth your time to do it. Here it is where it gets interesting. For arguments sake, let’s say Beethoven was a genius. The problem for him was: How do I get people to give a chance to this music?
