Mozart & Sibelius
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Friday, 6 December 2019 - 8:00 PM
Sunday, 8 December 2019 - 2:30 PM
Conductor: Osmo Vänskä
A Great Program From Start to Finnish

Writing for MusicWeb International, Rob Barnett states: “The Sibelius Third has Mozartian intimacy as well as a bristling urgency. There are few instances of gestural Tchaikovskian heroics. This tautness and perfection of balance and scale is clearly prized by Vänskä making this one of the strongest recordings.” Compare this Mozartian elegance of Sibelius to the master himself as Augustin Hadelich plays Mozart’s Second Violin Concerto, plus Thomas Ades’ shimmering “Concentric Paths.”

A pre-concert talk, beginning one hour prior to the performance in the auditorium, will be led by Associate Conductor Earl Lee. This talk is open to all ticketholders.

Immediately following the concert, join us for an on-stage performance of holiday favorites featuring The Pittsburgh Cello Quartet:
Bronwyn Banerdt, Will Chow, Mikhail Istomin, Charlie Powers.
