Conductor: Lahav Shani
Join the Pittsburgh Symphony and guest conductor Lahav Shani (debut) as they perform landmark works honoring the city of New York by America’s most celebrated composers. The concert opens with Charles Ives' The Unanswered Question and Kurt Weill's Symphony No. 2. Ives, son of George Ives, wrote his composition in 1906 but it remains a touchstone for avant-garde composers throughout the 20th century. Symphonic in conception, Weill's symphony embraces the melodies, harmonies and even feeling of his popular stage works. Pianist Jon Kimura Parker joins the orchestra for Rhapsody in Blue, Gershwin’s iconic jazz-concerto, filled with driving rhythms and rich melodies. Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story brings the program to a rousing close.

This performance is funded in part by the Kurt Weill Foundation for Music, Inc., New York, NY
