This weekend, the Cleveland Orchestra settles back into Severance Hall for its 2019-2020 season kickoff with its music director Franz Welser-Möst on the podium.
It will be doing two performances of two popular pieces. Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 3 was written in 1815 when he was only 18; it’s a good thing the prolific composer was precocious because, like Mozart, he died very young, at age 31. Sergei Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, Act I was written in 1935 and first performed in a revised version by the Kirov Ballet in Leningrad in 1940.
Tickets are $21-$161.
