Program Notes

Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for a program that packs a punch!  Finnish conductor, Osmo Vänskä, returns to the PSO with Kabalevsky’s The Comedians, a ruckus and wild ride for both musicians and audience.  Young Norwegian violin sensation Vilde Frang makes her debut performing Stravinsky’s Violin Concerto, a piece not heard in Pittsburgh for over 20 years.  The program continues with a Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra premiere of Einojuhani Rautavaara’s A Requiem in our Time, scored for brass ensemble, timpani, and percussion.  Vänskä concludes with Beethoven’s dramatic and ground-breaking Symphony No. 5, which remains one of the most celebrated symphonies in history.

Run Time: This performance will last approximately 2 hours.
