About This Performance

Featuring the Coronation Mass, the Unfinished Symphony and the Emperor Concerto, this weekend combines well-loved works from the classical period, all coined with nicknames not given by the composers themselves, but later added to suit the character of the works. The “Emperor” is Beethoven’s last piano concerto, dedicated to his patron and pupil, Archduke Rudolf. Preceding this, Manfred Honeck will join the orchestra, soloists and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh for a performance of Mozart’s Mass in C major, “Coronation,” the first time that this work has been performed in Heinz Hall. To close, Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 (“Unfinished”) is is one of the composer’s most romantic and heartfelt compositions for orchestra.
