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.
