Pianist Rudolph Buchbinder Cancels Upcoming Performance with Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, 6/13-15

Due to acute bronchitis, Austrian pianist Rudolph Buchbinder has canceled his scheduled appearance with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for the final subscription concert of the 2013-2014 season on June 13-15.

The weekend is a celebration of Richard Strauss' 150th birthday. Buchbinder's performance of Burleske in D minor for Piano and Orchestra will be replaced with Don Juan, Opus 20 a work featured on the Pittsburgh Symphony's recent "Strauss" recording.

"There are few composers who have such an impressive ability to depict a story together with existential moments in instrumental music as Richard Strauss in his 'tondictungen' ('tone poems')," said Music Director Manfred Honeck in the CD notes.

Grammaphone magazine chose the Strauss CD as one of its Editor's Picks for March 2014 and said of the recording, "But what makes these performances so outstanding are Manfred Honeck's interpretations, which vividly bring out the music's emotional and pictorial detail."

The program, conducted by Honeck, will open with Don Juan, followed by the Suite from Der Rosenkavalier, Opus 59 and the Elektra Symphonic Rhapsody.
