- Grieg—Suite from Peer Gynt: The soundtrack to Henrik Ibsen’s fantastical play—which is loosely based on a Norwegian fairy tale—Grieg’s composition swells unhurriedly through movements such as “In the Hall of the Mountain King” as it accompanies the story of a wedding and its aftermath.
- Nielson—Concerto for Flute and Orchestra: “When the solo flute enters, it does so with childish innocence,” Nielson wrote of his 1926 piece. That flute soon learns a thing or two as it carries oboes, clarinets, bassoons, horns, and strings through two movements that reflect a generally neoclassical bent.
- Sibelius—Symphony No. 5 in E-Flat Major: Commissioned by the Finnish government in honor of the composer’s own birthday—a national holiday—Sibelius filled this romantic, three-movement symphony with the rich melodies that had become his signature sound, as well as a movement where each musician must stand up and give him a present.
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra
Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1896, and its reputation was as big as its sound right from the start. Andrew Carnegie was an early backer, and reportedly claimed that it was the best orchestra in the country. More than a century later, it still enjoys its status as a nationally renowned organization. And the PSO continues to take pride in its acclaim—perhaps expanding on Carnegie's earlier view, current Music Director Manfred Honeck called the company "one of the world's finest orchestras."
The long-lived PSO makes its home in an equally historic venue. Converted from an opulent movie palace in 1971, when Americans swore off movies in favor of high culture, Heinz Hall proves itself an exceptional music venue. Fine acoustics please the ears, while eyes take in glittering chandeliers and glints of gold leaf.
