Cleveland Orchestra, Bruckner: (R)evolution

Conductor Franz Welser-Möst is a lauded interpreter of Bruckner, and he takes his steel-town band to New York City for a Lincoln Center residency this summer, with four concerts of Bruckner symphonies paired with three pieces by American composer John Adams. Two of the concerts will premiere at the Cleveland Orchestra's summer outdoor home the weekend before the New York gigs. Cleveland's Blossom Music Center, 7/9–7/10; New York City's Lincoln Center, 7/13–7/17
