BEETHOVEN: Piano Concerto No. 5, “Emperor”  
BERLIOZ: Te Deum (PITTSBURGH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PREMIERE)

The Pittsburgh Symphony closes its Mellon Grand Classics season with two monumental masterpieces. Pittsburgh favorite Emanuel “Manny” Ax returns with Beethoven’s “Emperor” Concerto. The quintessential concerto for the piano, the “Emperor” has it all – a striking opening, hymn-like adagio, and a glorious finish.

For the season finale, the Pittsburgh Symphony joins forces with the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, tenor Paul Appleby, the Pittsburgh Youth Chorus and the grandeur of the organ for Berlioz’s Te Deum, a sensory extravaganza from the opening massive chords to the bombastic finale. Never before performed in Pittsburgh, Te Deum is not to be missed!
