There are fantasy leagues for professional sport - baseball, football, hockey - and probably many for obscure subjects as well.  So we'll add to the imaginary world with a fantasy concert league for Cleveland.

Cleveland has a wealth of concerts every year, from the Cleveland Orchestra to a wide variety of presenting organizations.  But you've probably said to yourself "Why hasn't (you can insert your own favorite here) been in town?"  If you had the budget, who would   YOU like to hear in Cleveland?

There are some mid-career pianists that I think should attract a diverse audience. I can think of Sergio Tiempo and Ingrid Fliter (she played with the Clev. Orch. at Blossom a couple of years ago). I would very much like to hear Grigory Sokolov again (he played at the Oberlin Artists series many years ago), and Martha Argerich, who will be making her Cleveland debut this fall, at 76 years of age!

I would love to see a concert series, maybe 3-6 concerts per year depending on availability, that featured top orchestras from all over the world who are on tour. We have such a wealth of talent in this community that sometimes we forget just how good we are. Hearing head-to-head comparisons between the Cleveland Orchestra and other comparable ensembles would remind us of exactly what we have locally.

I once asked Gary Hanson quite a few years ago this question. He very candidly said that it was a question of budget. I too miss the chance of hearing other top orchestras here in Cleveland. Luckily, we do get to hear excellent soloists in recital or with chamber ensembles.
