No standing still. Instead, continuous transformation. The Cleveland Orchestra under Franz Welser-Möst opens with two compositions by Wolfgang Rihm. His historical reminiscences in “Verwandlung 2” and “Verwandlung 3” sound both familiar and distorted at the same time, repeatedly leading Rihm back to Franz Schubert whose “Great” C major Symphony rounds off the concert.
