SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 10TH
Harmonia, with Angela Mariani
On this morning’s show, we’ll speak with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra’s Allison Mackay about their multimedia concert The Galileo Project, which features music and narration related to baroque astronomers and images from space. Plus, we’ll explore the small guitar-like instrument, the vihuela.
Sunday Baroque, with Suzanne Bona
There’s a saying that “love is friendship set to music.” Music brings people together in many ways, including a number of musicians who became couples both on and off the concert stage. This morning’s show will feature some musical love matches, in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Sunday at the Symphony: Deutsche Welle Festival
Vladimir Ashkenazy conducts the German Symphony Orchestra of Berlin in Don Juan by Richard Strauss and the Symphony #5 by Gustav Mahler.
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.
