Grand Finale with Honeck
Manfred Honeck closes the season with the PSO's Gorton family (James, Gretchen and daughter Heidi) in an imaginative Concert Piece by Eugene Goossens. Maestro Honeck continues the PSO's Mahler Cycle with the immensely moving Sixth Symphony, containing the haunting sounds of Alpine cowbells, celesta, and a devastating hammer of fate. Last performed by the PSO ten years ago, this "Tragic" Symphony is an epic masterwork.
