Program Notes

Join the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra for a program of crowd-pleasing symphonic blockbusters.  Long-time friend of the PSO, Yan Pascal Tortelier, returns to lead the orchestra in Berlioz’s colorful Roman Carnival Overture.  Hailed as “absolutely stunning” (Chicago Tribune), Dutch violinist, Simone Lamsma, makes her PSO debut performing Korngold’s theatrically romantic Violin Concerto.  Tortelier and the PSO pack a punch to conclude the evening with Rachmaninoff’s spirited Symphonic Dances.
