the baton of Manfred Honeck, the PSO is slated to perform Eroica, one of the Ludwig Beethoven’s
most celebrated works. First publicly performed April 7, 1805, in Vienna, this large-scale
composition marked the beginning of Beethoven’s creative middle-period. The
work was composed mainly in 1803–04 and is grounded in the classical
symphonic tradition while stretching boundaries of form, length, harmony, and
perceived emotional content.
Honeck has conducted the PSO since before his 2008–09 appointment as the
organization’s ninth music director. He had first guest conducted the symphony
in May 2006, and returned for another appearance later that year in November. Born
in Austria, Honeck studied music at the Academy of Music in Vienna and
performed in various capacities with the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra—as
violinist, violist, and guest conductor. In addition to his directorship of the
Pittsburgh Symphony, Honeck has served as music director of the Swedish Radio
Symphony Orchestra and Staatsoper Stuttgart and as guest conductor of the Czech
in 1895, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has become an international
sensation over the course of its existence. Well into its second century, PSO
has remained immediately relevant to those interested in classical music. Teamed
with Honeck, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra has received wonderfully positive
reviews and was nominated for Best Orchestra Recording Grammy Award in 2015.
