Join Manfred Honeck for his second weekend of the Viennese Celebration and a look into the latter half of the Romantic period, as he takes the stage with Bruckner’s majestic Symphony No. 8. Sometimes nicknamed The Apocalyptic, the Eighth Symphony rises from a doom-laden opening to a noble third movement, and is some of the most ecstatic music the composer has ever created. Acclaimed for their interpretation of Bruckner, following their recent Grammy Award nomination, the epic Symphony No. 8 with Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is not to be missed.


Manfred Honeck, conductor

A pre-concert talk with Assistant Conductor Andrés Franco will occur on stage before the concert. Also before the concert, the Center for Young Musicians will perform in the Grand Lobby of Heinz Hall. Both pre-concert presentations begin one hour before the concert start time and are free and open to ticketholders.
