Monday September 5th – Morning Tour Report

The 2022 Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra European Festival Tour came to a triumphant close in Cologne last night with Anne-Sophie Mutter playing the Beethoven Violin Concerto and the Manfred Honeck conducting the Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5.  In this final Tour Report, Jim spoke with both Manfred Honeck and Anne-Sophie Mutter to get their thoughts on the tour.  Plus, hear from Principal Tuba Craig Knox who talks about how he stays in shape on tour.  Plus, hear from the organizer of the Cologne Philharmonie, who says it’s not only the acoustics that bring orchestras to Cologne, but also the beer!
