Conductor: Manfred Honeck
Premiere: April 24, 2021 at 7:30 p.m. (EST)

New Visions for Beloved Classics
Three composers tied together by their constant search for new colors, new musical languages and for musical storytelling: Ludwig van Beethoven, Anna Clyne and Rodion Shchedrin. This program features new visions of stellar works: a new arrangement by Music Director Manfred Honeck of one of Beethoven’s most popular string quartets; the Pittsburgh Symphony premiere of Stride, Clyne’s reimagination of the stride baseline from Beethoven’s “Pathetique” (which just had its world premiere in December 2020); and Shchedrin’s new conception of the Carmen Suite, an enchanting recasting of Bizet’s alluring and memorable melodies in fresh instrumental colors.

Episode is available through April 30, 2021
