About This Performance

Enjoy another opportunity to have our guest artist present his own composition with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra premiere of Conrad Tao's Pángǔ for orchestra (Please note that this work does not include a performance by Tao). Also featured is the music of America's quintessential performer-composer George Gershwin as Tao showcases his command over the conventional repertoire with a performance of Gershwin's Concerto in F. American conductor Leonard Slatkin gives a special treat by talking through elements of Strauss' Symphonia Domestica before its full performance.
