Harmonia, with Angela Mariani

This morning, we're on a musical tour of Madrid, a city where Roman, Visigothic, Jewish, Moorish and countless other traditions converged. We'll also celebrate the spirit of Armenia on a featured recording by Hesperion XXI that showcases the talents of Armenian musicians.

Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona

Benjamin Britten’s Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra is based on a melody by Henry Purcell, and Ralph Vaughan Williams quoted a melody from the 16th century for his Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis.  This morning’s show will feature the original tunes they used, plus other baroque music borrowed by composers centuries later.

Sunday at the Symphony

David Robertson conducts “Four Sea Interludes” from Benjamin Britten’s opera, Peter Grimes, and Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.  Plus, Orly Shaham, who played the debut of the work two years ago, is soloist in Steven Mackey’s piano concerto entitled Stumble to Grace.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham

This is a concert to excite the senses.  American premier composer Steven Stucky’s Son et Lumière (Sound and Light) entertains with its play of colors and shimmering textures.  Highly praised pianist Stephen Hough dazzles in the exotic sounds of Saint-Saens’ Concerto #3 (Egyptian).  And, Principal Guest Conductor Leonard Slatkin presents his own orchestral suite from Prokofiev’s ballet Cinderella
