This weekend brings together three pieces conducted for the first time by Manfred Honeck with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.  Written at the height of World War II, Prokofiev described his Symphony No. 5 as “a symphony of the greatness of the human spirit, a song of praise of free and happy mankind.” The Pittsburgh Symphony’s Beethoven Piano Concerto cycle continues with his Concerto No. 2 performed by British phenom Benjamin Grosvenor, recently named Gramophone’s “Young Artist of the Year”. The program closes with Janáček’s Sinfonietta, an athletic orchestral masterpiece for large scale forces.
