Nuance concerts get adventurous for 2003-04
Next season's "Nuance" concerts, announced today, will offer three adventurous programs performed by the Pittsburgh Symphony Chamber Orchestra at the Jewish Community Center in Squirrel Hill.
The orchestra's concertmaster, Andres Cardenes, will lead and play violin solos as usual, but also pick up the viola for a world premiere of a concerto written by Edwardo Crespo. Other soloists include bassoonist Nancy Goeres and cellist Anne Martindale Williams.
The unfamiliar and intriguing music next season includes pieces by Bohuslav Martinu inspired by food and by Klaus Hubner's portraying scenes from urban life. David Popper's brief and beautiful Requiem for three solo celli was played for Mstislav Rostropovich at a February masterclass at Heinz Hall.
Each of the concerts features popular masterpieces, including a concerto by Johann Sebastian Bach, a symphony by Franz Joseph Haydn, two serenades by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, and Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky's Serenade for Strings.
Nuance concerts are presented Tuesdays at 8 p.m. at Katz Performing Arts Center, Jewish Community Center, Squirrel Hill.
The three-concert subscription is $42-66 per seat.
