“A three-concert stint at Vienna’s famed Musikverein will be the core of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s next European tour, the symphony announced Monday,” writes Elizabeth Bloom in Tuesday’s (6/9) Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Led by music director Manfred Honeck, the orchestra will give 14 concerts in four countries from May 17 to June 5, 2016. Pianist Daniil Trifonov, percussionist Martin Grubinger and violinists Anne-Sophie Mutter and Leonidas Kavakos will join the PSO as featured soloists. Mr. Grubinger and Ms. Mutter played with the symphony on its last European tour, in summer 2013. The tour includes stops in Hannover, Bremen, Berlin, Dresden, Frankfurt, Stuttgart and Munich, Germany; Vienna and Bregenz, Austria; Basel, Switzerland; and Brussels, Belgium. The symphony will play works by Liszt, Beethoven, Rachmaninoff, Berg, Dvorák, Hartl, Haydn, Strauss and Tchaikovsky.”
