We're broadcasting live this morning from Art All Night, 22 hours of art and music called one of Pittsburgh’s most popular, and populist, arts events. Hundreds of artists enter more than a thousand works in the show, and they’re displayed by hundreds of volunteers. The show opened Saturday afternoon and continues through 2pm today, featuring live music, children’s activities, and more.
Sunday at the Symphony
In a concert recorded just last month, Esa Pekka Salonen conducts Tchaikovsky’s tone poem, Francesca da Rimini, and two works by the Finnish composer Jean Sibelius – the tone poem, Pohjola’s Daughter, and the Symphony #7. Yo-Yo Ma is soloist in Witold Lutoslawski’s Cello Concerto, written in 1970 for Mstislav Rostropovich.
