Pittsburgh Symphony Dates
5/20/2015
PSO - The Art of Music
8 PM. Music can inspire art, art can inspire music, and both inspire this stunning performance by the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra led by resident conductor Fawzi Haimor. In The Hebrides Overture, Mendelssohn takes the image of Fingal's Cave in Scotland and sets an alluring scene of waves lapping this stunning grotto. Tchaikovsky's dazzling Romeo & Juliet is the musical equal of Shakespeare's literarary masterpiece. Respighi is inspired by Renaissance paintings in Trittico Botticelliano, using rich sonorities and textures to illustrate the masterworks. A bird of a different feather, The Firebird Ballet was composed in 1910 by the completely unknown Stravinsky. Its tremendous success made the composer an international sensation, and like many great ballet scores, it is now more frequently performed as a concert work. Tickets & information: (800) 743-8560. Pre-Symphony Buffet, 6 PM: (724) 654-6683, option 3, then option 2.
