Posted on

Escape to ItalyOn Friday January 18 through Sunday January 20, The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra presents Noseda & Concert Italia at Heinz Hall. “[Finally] view a portrait of Italy through the orchestrated lens of Strauss in his Aus Italien or From Italy.” Be sure to check out this stunning performance and stop by The Carlton for dinner before. Also, take advantage of our complimentary limousine service after dinner and arrive in style!

“Hochman’s playing was serene, virtually Olympian in its overview.” –Pittsburgh Tribune-Review

“Italian conductor Gianandrea Noseda brings music from and inspired by his country.  Noseda is the Victor de Sabata Guest Conductor, so it is only fitting for him to conduct the beautiful ‘The night of Plàton’ by de Sabata in its PSO debut!  Ravel’s demanding Piano Concerto for left hand is performed with superb finesse by Benjamin Hochman.'”
