Violinist Vilde Frang’s profound musicianship and exceptional lyricism have elevated her as one of the leading and most individual young artists of our time. Hailed as a “grandiose talent” and an “astoundingly expressive music interpreter,” Frang joins forces with the Musicians of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in two brilliant Bach concerti. PSO principal oboist Cynthia Koledo DeAlmeida steps to the front as soloist with Frang; dazzling virtuoso duos are also highlighted throughout the evening including a Mozart Duo performed by husband and wife Andrew and Laura Fuller, plus guest concertmaster Kevin Lin with cellist Will Chow on the show-stopping Kodaly Duo.
The Clarion Quartet makes their PSO360 debut with Shostakovich’s striking Seventh String Quartet. Join Frang and the Musicians of the PSO from your seat on the Heinz Hall stage for a sparkling evening paying homge to the Golden Age of the Violin. Order early to be sure to have your seats!
