Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona

George Frideric Handel's oratorio Israel in Egypt was at first criticized as being "too solemn for common ears," but over time it has come to be considered one of Handel's masterpieces.  We’ll hear spirited, grand and hopeful selections from Handel's sacred oratorio this morning.

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham

Manfred Honeck closed the 2011/12 season with two momentous works.  The PSO’s Gorton-Van Hoesen family (James Gorton, oboe; Gretchen Van Hoesen, harp; and their daughter, harpist Heidi Van Hoesen Gorton) joined forces in the Concert Piece for Oboe, Two Harps and Orchestra by Eugene Goosens.  And, the Symphony’s Mahler cycle continued with Gustav Mahler’s Symphony #6 (Tragic).
