SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 8TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
Those who learn and those who teach share a love of craft and have relationships that can be intimate, or fraught. This morning, we'll explore music by three different student-teacher pairs from across the centuries. Plus, our featured recording explores viol music of Marin Marais.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
Now that the school year is back in full swing, we’ll feature music by some especially conscientious musical teachers, mentors and role models.
Sunday at the Symphony -- The Mozart Festival
Hour-1 highlights include excerpts from Mozart’s opera, Don Giovanni, and Marie Joao Pires and the Vienna Philharmonic in a Mozart piano concerto. In hour-2 are two Mozart symphonies, and the Mozarteum Orchestra Salzburg plays the sinfonia from J. C. Bach’s Lucio Silla.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham
Music Director Manfred Honeck closes the symphony’s Paris Festival with Igor Stravinsky’s vibrant and exceptional music for the ballet Petrouchka. Hear two pieces inspired by the influence of American jazz in Paris – George Gershwin’s An American in Paris, inspired by the composer’s own experience of the bustling streets of Paris; and Arthur Honegger’s jazz-infused Cello Concert, featuring the PSO’s Principal Cellist, Anne Martindale Williams.
