SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 15TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
This morning, we're listening for echoes. Spelunkers, churchgoers, and young children in bathrooms have always loved to hear their own voices bouncing back to them, and composers haven't been immune to the lure of echoing air. We'll hear musical echoes, short and long, from across Europe. Plus, we'll explore some curious inventions from composer Biagio Marini in our featured recording.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
This is National Piano Month, and we’ll celebrate the instrument and some of its outstanding performers this morning.
Sunday at the Symphony – Luzerne Festival: Concert #1
Claudio Abbado conducts the Luzerne Festival Orchestra in Brahms’ Tragic Overture and Beethoven’s Symphony #3. Mezzo-soprano Mihoko Fujimura is featured in Arnold Schoenberg’s Orchestral Interlude and the "Song of the Wood Dove" from Gurrelieder.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, with Jim Cunningham
Manfred Honeck conducts three tone poems by Richard Strauss – Don Juan, Death and Transfiguration, and Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks. Grammy Award-winning violinist and audience favorite, Joshua Bell, returns for an impassioned performance of Johannes Brahms’ technically-demanding Violin Concerto.
