The Cleveland Orchestra's performance of Shostakovich's 5th was nothing short of magnificent on Friday night! Franz Welser-Möst's extraordinary conducting brought him back for six curtain calls and then he led the orchestra in Wagner's moving prelude to Lohengrin for an encore. I nearly dissolved in tears! This was a stunning and very electrifying performance. Welser-Möst's conducting was simply brilliant!
