Original airdate 
Jun 10, 2022

The Music Director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Manfred Honeck talks with Jim Cunningham about the program for the weekend of June 10th with three pieces written for or first heard in America. The first Pittsburgh performance of the Dvorak Te Deum, the Poulenc Gloria inspired by Benedictine Monks playing soccer in 1961 both sung by the Mendelssohn Choir, and Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto with Beatrice Rana. Maestro Honeck says he enjoys the time on the plane to study his music and he enjoyed his recent tour with the Orchestra of Paris, having his son Joachim in town, how delighted he was with the Beethoven Symphony complete series this Spring and how thrilled he is with the general state of affairs even following a pandemic.
