Described “with bravura, finesse and an intelligence that makes these versions a true celebration of Beethoven’s genius,” Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony’s latest recording of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 has been met with outstanding critical acclaim. This weekend, Finnish conductor Jukka-Pekka Saraste returns to Pittsburgh to lead this remarkable work. Following the premiere of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 in 1813 to benefit the wounded soldiers after the battle of Hanau, the crowd rose to their feet in praise of this joyous work. Composed a little more than 100 years later, Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 premiered in celebration of the composer’s 50th birthday in 1915. The work opens with a four-note theme in the horns that is developed seamlessly throughout, expanding into an exhilarating rush of energy to the end.
