Chopin & Rachmaninoff
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Conductor: Christoph König
Returning to the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Christoph König leads the Orchestra in a program steeped in rich Russian musical tradition. König opens the night with the Pittsburgh Symphony premiere of Scherzo in B-flat Major by one of the mighty “Russian Five” – Modest Mussorgsky. This is one of 10 pieces this season that will be played for the first time by the Orchestra. Also making her return is 2010 Chopin Competition winner Yulianna Avdeeva, the young Russian pianist known for her fresh yet mature interpretation of the Chopin repertoire. To close the program, König leads the orchestra in Rachmaninoff’s impassioned Symphony No. 2 that has left listeners spellbound by its technical and lyrical mastery since its premiere in 1908.
