Best of Italy Wine Dinner Tonight!

Posted on

It’s not too late to get in your reservations for our Best of Italy Wine Dinner tonight – October 1 – with Stan ‘the Wine Man’ Lalic!

Stan has pulled out all the stops for his first dinner in our new digs!

All of the wines for this evening are Tre Bicchieri Award Winning Wines – comparable to a 95+ rated Wine in the United States!  Less than 1% of all Italian Wines rated ever receive this designation – so these are truly the best of “the best!”  Friday evening dinners with Stan are a tradition that we hope will continue at The Carlton for many years to come!

BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Honeck & Bronfman

Posted on

This Weekend, join the Pittsburgh Symphony and Orchestra.
October 1st and 2nd at 8:00 p.m.
Sunday, October 3rd at 2:30 p.m.

Visit the Heinz Hall for the Performing Arts and see Manfred Honeck, conductor; Yefim Bronfman, Piano. Strauss: Don Juan; Bartók: Piano Concerto No. 3; Mozart: Symphony No. 39. Richard Strauss’ first tone poem, Don Juan, is not about the lecherous Don Juan of legend but about the sympathetic hero who yearns for a love which can never be from a poem by Nikolaus Lenau. Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto was composed as a surprise birthday gift for his wife and is one of his last and most light-hearted works. A work of extraordinary beauty and vitality, Symphony No. 39 is one of Mozart’s grandest symphonic creations.
