About This Performance

Experience the music of another PSO Pittsburgh Composer of the Year.  In Leonardo Balada’s “Symphony of Sorrows,” Leonardo 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.
