Pittsburgh Symphony to Present BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Scheherazade, 11/8-10
Scheherazade, Pittsburgh Symphony
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will present BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Scheherazade, Nov. 8-10, 2013 (Times: Nov. 8 & 9: 8 p.m.; Nov. 10: 2:30 p.m) at the Heinz Hall, 600 Penn Ave., Pittsburgh, Pa.
Experience the music of another Pittsburgh Composer of the Year. In Leonardo Balada's "Symphony of Sorrows," Balada tried to picture musically two aspects of war in its psychological perspective and in so doing; the music brings desperate tensions as well as desolated intimate moments. Violinist Arabella Steinbacher returns with artistry of "immense beauty, light agility and secure intonation" (The Bruckner Journal) in Prokofiev's delicate and airy first violin concerto. Scheherazade is the musical portrayal of a story from One Thousand and One Nights in which the Persian queen Scheherazade saves her own life through cunning story-telling.
