The Festival @ Home series of concert broadcasts kicks-off from The Space at THIS IS RED—the historic St. Michael's Slovakian Roman Catholic church, now turned event space, in Pittsburgh. Enjoy a quintet of Festival Orchestra musicians performing Mozart’s String Quintet in G minor, a piece widely considered the most heartfelt of the great composer’s string quintets.
This evening, some of the season’s most notable performers return for an unforgettable finale. Maestro Alasdair Neale will close out the season with a series of encore appearances from some of the biggest names this summer, including Time for Three, Orion Weiss, Daniil Trifonov, and more. To finish, enjoy one last farewell performance by your virtual all-star orchestra.
One of the most exciting musical developments in recent years has been the increasing popularity of ensembles who use their classical training to seek out new musical frontiers or, to misquote the commander of the Starship Enterprise, to boldly go where no musicians have gone before. Prepare to explore the musical universe’s outer boundaries with intrepid ensembles, including Time for Three, the 442s, the Villalobos Brothers, and more.
Often considered Brahms’ greatest chamber work, the Piano Quintet in F Minor had a complex compositional history. Completed in 1864, it began life two years earlier as a string quintet, which was then transcribed for two pianos. In its final form, it is notable for its musical cohesiveness and a brooding quality that ranges from the tragic to the practically possessed. It is played here by a string quartet from the Festival Orchestra—Erin Schreiber, Shawn Weil, Shannon Farrell Williams, and Bjorn Ranheim—with Peter Henderson on piano.
