Widely regarded as one of the world's finest orchestras, in 2018 The Cleveland Orchestra celebrated the 100th anniversary of it's founding by pianist and impresario Adella Prentiss Hughes. Today, as the Orchestra looks forward into a new century, the ensemble launches it's own record label with a deluxe box set conducted and curated by Franz Welser-Mst, their Music Director of almost two decades. Recorded in concert within the legendary acoustic of Severance Hall, A New Century features recordings of landmark works by Beethoven, Varse, Richard Strauss, and Prokofiev alongside new works by Austrian composers Johannes Maria Staud and Bernd Richard Deutsch. The set is presented in a luxurious box set featuring artwork inspired by the Orchestra's architecturally stunning home in Cleveland. The album is accompanied by a 150-page book filled with photographs and notes exploring the music within and the history of this great American orchestra.
