Commissioned works by Pittsburgh composers, ...and Renaissance vocal music “rock stars” The Tallis Scholars, highlight the 2013-2014 BNY Mellon Grand Classics Season. Other highlights include: Oscar-winning film West Side Story with orchestra, Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, three world premieres, six Pittsburgh premieres, The Planets with NASA footage, Mozart Festival and Mahler’s 9th Symphony. Concerts featuring Carl Orff’s well-known and popular Carmina Burana begin the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra’s 2013-2014 BNY Mellon Grand Classics season, which includes a Mozart Festival, commissioned works by Pittsburgh composers, a screening of West Side Story with orchestra, and Richard Strauss’ Also sprach Zarathustra, most famously used by filmmaker Stanley Kubrick in the opening to his sci-fi masterpiece, 2001: A Space Odyssey. The season marks the PSO’s sixth under the leadership of Music Director Manfred Honeck, and the 118th since its founding. Honeck conducts ten of the 21-week BNY Mellon Grand Classics subscription concerts, including performances of Carmina Burana, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 4, highlights from Mozart’s The Magic Flute and Don Giovanni, and Gustav Holst’s The Planets, featuring awe-inspiring footage from NASA. Victor de Sabata Guest Conductor Gianandrea Noseda will lead the PSO in two subscription weekends. Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley and Principal Horn William Caballero will be featured soloists, with BendixBalgley playing Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy (Oct. 25 & 27, 2013), and Caballero performing Mozart’s Horn Concerto No. 1 (April 2527, 2014). Honeck will lead the PSO in its first concert of 2013-2014 at Heinz Hall: The “Once Upon a Time” gala on Friday, Sept. 27, with Yo-Yo Ma, performing Tchaikovsky’s Variations on a Rococo Theme and Andante Cantabile. The PSO will celebrate the Year of the Pittsburgh Composers in 2013-2014, with the orchestra performing works by eight Pittsburgh composers, including two world premieres. “We are eagerly looking forward to another brilliant season for Manfred Honeck and the

Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra,” PSO President and CEO James A. Wilkinson said. “I have no doubt our patrons will be thrilled not only by the varied and exciting repertoire, but also by the world-renowned and immensely talented guest artists who will be gracing the Heinz Hall.” “I will be starting my sixth season with this wonderful orchestra,” Honeck said. “I love this orchestra, I love this beautiful city, and I cannot wait to give our loyal audiences many more unforgettable performances of Mahler, Mozart, Beethoven, Bruckner, the Strauss Family, and many more great composers.” In 2013-2014, the PSO will launch a new series, “Behind the Notes,” where the conductor and the PSO will spend the first half of the concert demonstrating the secrets behind the music. After intermission, the audience will hear the entire performance of the music with an enriched understanding of the piece. The two “Behind the Notes” concerts will be Saturday, Jan. 18, 2014, when Christoph König conducts Also Sprach Zarathustra, and Saturday, March 15, 2014, when Leonard Slatkin conducts four works by Maurice Ravel – Alborada del gracioso, Pavane pour une infant défunte, Menuet antique and Boléro. Eight conductors popular with Pittsburgh audiences – Leonard Slatkin, Donald Runnicles, Yan Pascal Tortelier, Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos, Juraj Valcuha, Christoph König, Nicholas McGegan, and Nikolaj Znaider – will return in 2013-2014. Among the many highlights next season are the PSO debuts of ten exciting guest soloists: pianists Yulianna Avdeeva, Daniil Trifonov, Till Fellner, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, Michel Camilo and Robert Levin, violinist Ye-Eun Choi, soprano Lisette Oropesa, tenor Andrey Nemzer, and The Tallis Scholars, dubbed by The New York Times continued on page 4

////////// as “the rock stars of Renaissance vocal music.”

The first subscription weekend features Orff’s Carmina Burana, and the world premiere of Stock’s Symphony No. 6. The concert will feature Oropesa, making her PSO debut, as well as Nemzer, baritone Hugh Russell, and the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh, directed by Betsy Burleigh. Among other guest artists gracing the Heinz Hall stage next season are violinist Joshua Bell, as well as other violinists, Arabella Steinbacher, and Stefan Jackiw, pianists Rudolf Buchbinder, Hélène Grimaud, Stephen Hough and soprano Hila Plitmann. The 2013-2014 season will mark the fifth season in which Honeck and the PSO continue their journey through Beethoven’s impressive body of orchestral works. This season will feature his Piano Concerto No. 4, the Overture to Fidelio and Symphony No. 4. Also, Honeck and the PSO will continue celebrating the music by Gustav Mahler, with his Symphony No. 9. The Explore and Engage Program reflects the PSO’s commitment to enabling patrons to have a more meaningful and personally relevant

connection to the PSO and its repertoire. Collaborations with area arts organizations and companies enhance the PSO’s musical offerings, giving insights to the music, artists, and programs through lobby displays, video and interactive installations, audience engagement workshops and pre-concert discussions. The PSO also teams with WQED Multimedia & WQED-FM, and the Carnegie Libraries of Pittsburgh to present the PSO Book Club, as part of these activities. The PSO will continue using Patron Services Representatives (PSR) for all BNY Mellon Grand Classics subscribers. This service grants each subscriber a PSR to assist with ticket exchanges, subscription renewals and Annual Fund contributions, as well as advance notice of upcoming specials and Explore and Engage activities surrounding the concerts. Subscriptions, ranging from seven concerts ($117-$621.25) to the entire 21-concert season ($262.25-$1,695.75), are available by calling the Heinz Hall box office at 412.392.4900, or visitingpittsburghsymphony.org.

Mason Bates brings not only his own fresh talent to the concert hall but also the musical sensibilities of a new generation — he is equally at home composing “for Lincoln Center,” according to his web site (www. masonbates.com), as being the “electronica artist Masonic® who moved to the San Francisco Bay Area from New York City, where he was a lounge DJ at such venues as The Frying Pan — the floating rave ship docked off the pier near West 22nd Street.” Bates was born in Philadelphia in 1977 and started studying piano with Hope Armstrong Erb at his childhood home in Richmond, Virginia. He earned degrees in both English literature and music composition in the joint program of Columbia University and the Juilliard School, where his composition teachers included John Corigliano, David Del Tredici and Samuel Adler, and received his doctorate in composition from the University of California, Berkeley in 2008 as a student of Edmund Campion and Jorge Lidermann. Bates was Resident Composer with the California Symphony from 2008 to 2011, Project San Francisco Artistin-Residence with the San Francisco Symphony in 2011-2012, and began a continuing residency with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in September 2010; he is Composer of the Year with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra in 2012-2013. Bates’ rapidly accumulating portfolio of orchestral, chamber, vocal, theatrical and electronic compositions includes commissions and performances by the major orchestras of London, Lisbon, New York, Washington, Atlanta, Toronto, Phoenix, San Francisco, Oakland, Annapolis, Los Angeles, Miami and Detroit, the Tanglewood, Aspen, Cabrillo and Spoleto USA festivals, Biava Quartet, Chanticleer and New Juilliard Ensemble. In 2010, Bates was commissioned to write Mothership for the second concert of the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble composed of musicians from around the world who were selected through on-line auditions by Michael Tilson Thomas, the project’s director and conductor, and assembled in Sydney, Australia for rehearsals and a live concert on March 20, 2011 streamed on the internet; the first YouTube Symphony Orchestra concert was held in New York in 2009. Bates’ many honors include a Charles Ives Scholarship and Fellowship from the American Academy of Arts and Letters, Guggenheim Fellowship, Jacob Druckman Memorial Prize from the Aspen Music Festival, ASCAP and BMI awards, a Fellowship from the Tanglewood Music Center, Rome Prize, Berlin Prize and a two-year Composer Residency with Young Concert Artists. Bates wrote of The B-Sides, commissioned in 2009 by the San Francisco Symphony, “It was between Tchaikovsky and Brahms that [SFS Music Director] Michael Tilson Thomas, surprisingly mellow in his dressing room during one intermission, broached the idea of a new work. Fresh off the podium after the concerto, and apparently undistracted by the looming symphony in the second half, he suggested a collection of five pieces focusing on texture and sonority — perhaps like Schoenberg’s

PROGRAM NOTES \ 2012-2013 SEASON

Five Pieces for Orchestra. Since my music had largely gone in the other direction — large works that bathed the listener in immersive experiences — the idea intrigued me. I had often imagined a suite of concise, off-kilter symphonic pieces that would incorporate the grooves and theatrics of electronica in a highly focused manner. So, like the forgotten bands from the flipside of an old piece of vinyl, The B-Sides offers brief landings on a variety of peculiar planets, unified by a focus on fluorescent orchestral sonorities and the morphing rhythms of electronica. “The first stop is the dusky, circuit-board landscape of Broom of the System. To the ticking of a future clock, our broom — brought to life by sandpaper blocks and, at one point, an actual broom — quietly and anonymously keeps everything running, like a chimney-sweep in a huge machine. The title is from a short-story collection by David Foster Wallace, though one could place the fairy-like broom in Borges’ Anthology of Fantastic Zoology. “The ensuing Aerosol Melody (Hanalei) blooms on the north shore of the island of Kauai in Hawaii, where a gentle, bending melody evaporates at cadence points. Djembe [a rope-tuned, skin-covered, goblet-shaped drum played with the hands] and springy pizzicati populate the strange fauna of this purely acoustic movement. The lazy string glissandi ultimately put the movement, beachside, to sleep. “Gemini in the Solar Wind is a re-imagination of the first American spacewalk, using actual communication samples from the 1965 Gemini IV voyage provided by NASA. In this re-telling, clips of words, phrases and static from the original are rearranged to show Ed White, seduced by the vastness and mystery of space, deliriously unhooking from the spacecraft to drift away blissfully. “White’s final vision of the coast of Northern California drops us down close to my home. The initial grit of Temescal Noir, like the Oakland neighborhood of the title, eventually shows its subtle charm in hazy, jazz-tinged hues. Unbothered by electronics, this movement receives some industrious help in the rhythm department from a typewriter and an oil drum. At its end, the broom returns in a cameo, again altering the tempo, and this propels us into Warehouse Medicine. An homage to techno’s birthplace — the empty warehouses of Detroit — the final stop on The B-Sides gives no quarter. Huge brass swells and out-of-tune pizzicati emulate some of the visceral sonorities of techno, and on this pounding note The B-Sides bows out.”

WOLFGANG AMADÉ MOZART

Concerto No. 25 in C major for Piano and Orchestra, K. 503 (1786)

ABOUT THE COMPOSER

Born 27 January 1756 in Salzburg; died 5 December 1791 in Vienna

By the end of 1786, the time of the majestic C major Concerto (K. 503), Mozart had begun the decline into illness, debt and overwork that would cut his life short at the age of 35. He was beginning to dread the knock on the door for fear of finding a bill collector there; he was having difficulty meeting the rental cost of his apartment in the Schulerstrasse; his family medical bills were piling up; a new son, Johann Thomas Leopold, was born on October 18th and died less than a month later; and the revenues from The Marriage of Figaro, on which he had pinned such great hope, were disappointing, his opera virtually driven from the Viennese stage by the popularity of Martin y Soler’s Una cosa rara (which he quoted, perhaps ironically, in Don Giovanni the following year.) Mozart considered 15

moving to England to try to better his fortunes, but he was frustrated in that venture by his tattered financial situation and the refusal of his father to take care of his son Karl in Salzburg. (Papa Leopold was still miffed at Wolfgang’s choice of a marriage partner, besides which he, a widower, was already in charge at that time of another grandchild, his daughter Nannerl’s son Leopold.) Having made a sensation when he moved to Vienna only five years before, Mozart saw much of his public slip away during the months of 1786, confused and put off by the disturbing depth of expression in his recent works. Still, Mozart persisted in writing as he wanted, perhaps escaping from the difficulties of his personal life and the demands of the fickle crowd through his compositions. Some of his greatest works date from that year: Figaro, The Impresario, the K. 496 and K. 502 Piano Trios, the Clarinet Trio (K. 498), the Symphony No. 38 (“Prague”), and three surpassing piano concertos: K. 488, 491 and 503. Mozart entered the Concerto No. 25 (K. 503) into his list of compositions on December 4, 1786, only two days before he completed the “Prague” Symphony. The Concerto was apparently written for his own use at one of the Advent concerts he had scheduled at the Trattner Casino in Vienna. The Concerto opens with a sense of spaciousness and grandeur unsurpassed in late-18th-century music. The bright nobility of the prevailing C major tonality is frequently clouded, however, by brief excursions into darker harmonic areas as the thematic material is presented. A succinct motive of four short repeated notes appears in the violins soon after the beginning, and serves as the thematic kernel from which much of the movement grows. The soloist’s entrance bridges to the repeat of the principal themes from the orchestral introduction with elaborations from the piano. (Many performers rank this among Mozart’s most difficult concertos to play.) The richly textured development section is built largely from the repeated-note motive presented in the Concerto’s opening measures. The movement’s themes are further elaborated in the recapitulation in the suave, unerring manner that vivifies Mozart’s finest works. The graceful opening theme sets the mood for the Andante, a fully worked-out sonata-concerto form in moderately slow tempo, with the soloist providing precisely the right amount of decorative embellishment as the music unfolds. The theme of the finale is an almost literal copy of a gavotte in the ballet music of Mozart’s 1781 opera, Idomeneo, which he was considering revising in 1786. The movement retains the sparkling quality usually associated with its rondo form, while adding to it a certain seriousness of thought that was such an integral component of Mozart’s compositional language in the works of his later years.

46 minutes PROGRAM NOTES BY DR. RICHARD E. RODDA

“In the Fifth Symphony I wanted to sing the praises of the free and happy man — his strength, his generosity and the purity of his soul. I cannot say I chose this theme; it was born in me and had to express itself.” The “man” that Prokofiev invoked in this description of the philosophy embodied in this great Symphony could well have been the composer himself. The work was written in the summer of 1944, one of the happiest times he knew. His home life following marriage to his second wife four years earlier was contented and fulfilling; he was the most famous and often-performed of all Soviet composers; and Russia was winning the war. In fact, the success of the premiere of this work was buoyed by the announcement immediately before the concert that the Russian army had just scored a resounding victory on the River Vistula. The composer’s mind was reflected in the fluency and emotional depth of his music. Prokofiev never hinted that there was a program underlying the Fifth Symphony except to say that “it is a symphony about the spirit of man.” During the difficult years of World War II, Soviet music, according to Boris Schwartz, “was meant to console and uplift, to encourage and exhort; nothing else mattered.” Though some, like Martin Bookspan, find “ominous threats of brutal warfare” lurking beneath the surface of Prokofiev’s music, there is really nothing here to match such symphonies born of the violence of war as Shostakovich’s Seventh and Vaughan Williams’ Fourth. Rather it is a work that reflects the composer’s philosophy after he returned to Russia in the 1930s from many years of living in western Europe and America. In his 1946 autobiographical sketch, he wrote, “It is the duty of the composer, like the poet, the sculptor or the painter, to serve his fellow men, to beautify human life and point the way to a radiant future. Such is the immutable code of art as I see it.” The Symphony’s opening movement is a large sonata form in moderate tempo that begins without introduction. The wide-ranging main theme is presented simply by flute and bassoon before being taken up by the strings; flute and oboe sing the lyrical second theme. Two brief motives close the exposition. One, characterized by its dotted rhythms, arrives on the crest of the movement’s first climax; the other is an angular, skittish fragment tossed off by high woodwinds, violins and cellos. The development gives prominence in its first portion to the opening theme and the skittish motive from the end of the exposition; it later focuses on the second theme and the arch-shaped complementary melody. The recapitulation is heralded by the stentorian sounds of the brass choir announcing the main theme. The second-movement scherzo is one of those pieces that Prokofiev would have classified as “motoric”: an incessant two-note rhythmic motive drives the music forward through its entire first section. The movement’s central section is framed by a bold, strutting phrase from the woodwinds adorned with the piquant “wrong notes” that spice so much of Prokofiev’s quick music. The brooding third movement is in a large three-part design. The

outer sections are supported by the deliberate rhythmic tread of the low instruments used as underpinning for a plaintive melody initiated by the clarinets. A sweeping theme begun by the tuba serves as the basis for the middle section. The finale opens with a short introduction comprising two gestures based on the main theme of the first movement: a short woodwind phrase answered by the strings, and a chorale for cellos. The main body of the movement is a sonata-rondo structure propelled by an insistent rhythmic motive. The movement accumulates a large amount of thematic material as it progresses, though it is the solo clarinet playing the main theme which begins each of the important structural sections of the form. A furious, energetic coda ignites several of the movement’s themes into a grand closing blaze of orchestral color.

The music of Mason Bates fuses innovative orchestral writing, imaginative narrative forms, the harmonies of jazz and the rhythms of techno. His symphonic music has been the first to receive widespread acceptance for its expanded palette of electronic sounds, and it is championed by leading conductors such as Riccardo Muti, Michael Tilson Thomas, and Leonard Slatkin. He has become a visible advocate for bringing new music to new spaces, whether through institutional partnerships such as his residency with the Chicago Symphony, or through his classical/DJ project Mercury Soul, which has transformed spaces ranging from commercial clubs to Frank Gehry-designed concert halls into exciting, hybrid musical events drawing over a thousand people. Carnegie Hall’s 2012-2013 season opened with Riccardo Muti leading the Chicago Symphony in Alternative Energy, an “energy symphony” that spans four movements and hundreds of years. Premiered last season to rave reviews, the work subsequently toured California and received its Canadian premiere by the Toronto Symphony. This season, the Houston Ballet premiered a major new ballet to The B-Sides, a dance suite that has been performed around the country since its San Francisco Symphony premiere. And the Phoenix Symphony presents two of his works this season — Desert Transport, which conjures a helicopter trip over the Arizona landscape, and a new song cycle for soprano and orchestra. While Bates often performs the electronica onstage with orchestras, dozens of repeat performances of his symphonic music happen without him – demonstrating how electronics can act as a

new section in the orchestra with little logistical effort. A good example is Mothership, which premiered at the Sydney Opera House by the YouTube Symphony to an online audience of 1.8 million: appearing on symphonic programs across the country this season. Many purely acoustic works complement his diverse catalogue, such as Sirens, an a cappella work touring with the superstar chorus Chanticleer. The solo piano work White Lies for Lomax, commissioned by Tanglewood Music Center, won the Van Cliburn Composers Invitational and is heard regularly on recitals. A new string quartet premiered by the Del Sol Quartet at the 2012 Cabrillo Festival receives its Bay Area premiere this December. A great deal of his music has been performed by the musicians of Young Concert Artists, the acclaimed New York organization where he served as composer-in-residence. Bringing classical music to new audiences is a central part of Bates’ activities as a curator, be it through residencies with institutions such as the Chicago Symphony’s MusicNOW series, or in alternative spaces with Mercury Soul. A collaboration with Director Anne Patterson and Maestro Benjamin Shwartz, Mercury Soul embeds sets of classical music into an evening of DJ-ing and immersive stagecraft. Sold-out performances from San Francisco’s famed Mezzanine club to Miami’s New World Symphony have brought a new vision of the listening experience to widespread audiences, and this season, it returns to Chicago’s Metro with members of the Chicago Symphony, as well as to Pittsburgh’s Static nightclub in the Strip.

In March of 1719, Johann Sebastian Bach, Kapellmeister to the Prince of Köthen, travelled to Berlin on an errand to purchase a two-manual harpsichord. Always on the lookout for career opportunities, he took out time while in Berlin to perform for a certain Margrave Christian Ludwig of Brandenburg. The Margrave was so delighted with Bach’s playing that he commissioned Bach to write several pieces for him. Two years later, the Margrave received a beautifully bound manuscript, dedicated to him, and containing the six magnificent pieces which he called Six Concerts avec plusieurs d’instruments. We know them as the Brandenburg Concerti, but they were not, in fact, composed specifically for the Margrave. Rather, these are six individual pieces that Bach had written at various times for use with his orchestra at Köthen, and possible Weimar. Being a busy man and a practical one, he simply collected six concerti which represented his best work, and copied them out for the Margrave. Apparently the Margrave did not have the musical personnel necessary to perform these works; thus, he never used the score, never sent Bach a fee, and never thanked him. So much for the Margrave. The fact that these concertos were composed at different times for different occasions--not to mention the extremely diverse instrumentation (each one requires a different group of players)--demonstrates that the six concerti were never intended to be performed as a set. To perform all six is impractical from the point of view of musical personnel. Moreover, the structural coherence that Bach always instilled in pieces that he composed as a set (i.e., key relationships, form, instrumentation, etc.) does not exist between the six Brandenburgs. Rather, each one is an individual gem--a sparkling and perfectly-structured entity on its own. Music writers in the 18th century often talked about the goal of musical performance: to move the Affections (moods, emotions) of the listener. The Brandenburg concertos have proven their extraordinary power to move, delight and captivate audiences for 250 years. But what is it that gives them that power – that greatness that we all intuitively sense? To start with, most of Bach’s instrumentations are unique and daring. Take, for example, Concerto No. 1 – the aristocratic piccolo violin of the courtly ballroom meets the raucous hunting horns from the woods. Or Concerto No. 2 - violin, recorder and trumpet?! The uniquely dark palette of Concerto No. 6 is also extraordinary, with the violins banished from the ensemble while two dueling violas take the spotlight amidst the colorful sonority of viola da gamba and bass instruments. Bach uses both texture and form in unprecedented ways, blending the solo concerto and group concerto (concerto grosso) forms. Concertos No. 2, 4, 5 and 6 feature primarily one solo instrument (trumpet, violin, harpsichord, and a pair of violas, respectively), but also feature groups of solo instruments in contrast. The density and polyphonic complexity of Bach’s compositional textures (far exceeding the concertos of Vivaldi) is

PROGRAM NOTES \ 2012-2013 SEASON

surely one of the qualities that makes us feel we hear something new and different each time we listen. He also achieves extraordinary textural variety: the slow movements take us into a chamber music environment, where the pool of light centers on the soloists and their continuo players, while themes unfold with expressive individuality and a timeless sense of measured order. Above all, there is a sense of exhilaration that all of us feel from performing the Brandenburgs. Some of that is due to sheer virtuosity: the featured solo instrument(s) in each piece requires a level of virtuosity that is literally athletic. For example, Concerto No. 2, which strikes awe, if not fear, into most trumpet players, is certainly the most challenging piece in the trumpet repertoire. Not only does Bach expect the trumpet to play real melodies rather than the usual simple fanfares, but he takes the instrument up to the note g”--a note requiring fifty pounds per square inch air pressure! The musical and physical challenges of this piece make live performances rare events. And then there is that exuberant celebration of democracy in music: the Concerto No. 3, where each individual string player is an equal soloist. Designed to showcase the virtuoso musicians of Bach’s orchestra at Köthen, the piece remains a thrilling workout for any ensemble today. Bach composed two substantial movements for this concerto, leaving the players to improvise a transitional second movement, for which he provided only two chords. Concerto No. 4 features revolutionary pyro-technics for the violin and the recorder parts are rather devilish as well. The triumphant counterpoint of the finale proves once and for all that that fugal writing can be fun. Concerto No. 5 requires from the harpsichordist a level of speed in the scalar passages that far exceeds anything else in the repertoire. One has to train for this piece the same way one trains for an athletic event. Also, the unusual role of the harpsichord in this Concerto--starting off playing basso continuo (easy), then playing solo melodies in dialogue with the flute and violin (moderately difficult), then getting carried away into virtuoso scales (very difficult), and finally leaving the others in the dust as one contemplates the universe in a huge solo cadenza (mountaintop experience)--makes this piece a unique emotional experience each time one plays it. What makes them so great, in the end, is best understood through Bach’s words as a teacher of how to play basso continuo: “The aim and reason of the basso continuo, as of all music, should be none else but the glory of God and the refreshing of the mind.”

Jeannette Sorrell has quickly gained international attention as a leading voice among the new generation of early music conductors. Following a series of CD releases in Europe during 2010, her London debut soldout. The London Times hailed the concert as a discovery: “an unusually star-studded night at the Wigmore Hall, for one of early music’s better-kept secrets.” Sorrell is the Music Director of the acclaimed Apollo’s Fire Baroque Orchestra in Cleveland, which she founded in 1992. The ensemble tours internationally, with her 2011 engagements includint stops in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Toronto, Boston, Madrid, Lisbon and Bordeaux.

On their series in Cleveland, Sorrell and Apollo’s Fire enjoy one of the largest audiences of any baroque orchestra in the country. Sorrell has been credited by the U.K.’s BBC Music Magazine for forging “a vibrant, life-affirming approach to the re-making of early music… a seductive vision of musical authenticity.” Sorrell and Apollo’s Fire record for the British label AVIE RECORDS, and have released seventeen commercial CDs, including the complete Brandenburg Concerti and harpsichord concerti (with Sorrell as harpsichord soloist and director), which was praised by the London Times as “a swaggering version, brilliantly played by Sorrell.” She has also released four discs of Mozart, and was hailed as “a near-perfect Mozartian” by Fanfare Record Magazine. Her 2010 CD release of the Monteverdi Vespers debuted in the Top 10 on the classical Billboard chart.

This was followed by the 2011 release of Sorrell’s crossover/folk program, Come to the River: An Early American Gathering. This too debuted in the Top 10 on Billboard. Sorrell has attracted national attention and awards for creative programming.

Her awards include an honorary doctorate from Case Western University, the Bodky Award from the Cambridge Society of Early Music and the Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society. Born in the U.S. of Swiss and American parents, Sorrell was one of the youngest students ever accepted to the prestigious conducting courses of the Aspen and the Tanglewood music festivals. She studied conducting under Robert Spano, Roger Norrington and Leonard Bernstein, and harpsichord with Gustav Leonhardt in Amsterdam. She won both the First Prize and the Audience Choice Award in the 1991 Spivey International Harpsichord Competition, competing against over 70 harpsichordists from Europe, Israel, the U.S., and the Soviet Union. Sorrell’s guest engagements include the Handel & Haydn Society in Boston, the Opera Theatre of St. Louis with the St. Louis Symphony, the Grand Rapids Symphony, the Elgin Symphony in Illinois, the Windsor Symphony in Ontario, the Akron Symphony, and the Cleveland Orchestra. Passionate about guiding the next generation of performers, Sorrell has led many baroque projects for Oberlin Conservatory and the Cleveland Institute of Music. These performances mark her debut with the PSO.

LEGACY OF EXCELLENCE

In addition to income from the Annual Fund, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra is dependent on a robust Endowment to assure its financial stability. Gifts from Legacy of Excellence programs are directed to the endowment to provide for the PSO’s future. The Steinberg Society honors donors who have advised the PSO in writing that they have made a provision for the orchestra through their estate plans. Members of the Sid Kaplan Tribute program have made a planned gift to the endowment of $10,000 or more to commemorate a particular person or event. Endowed naming opportunities for guest artists, musicians’ chairs, concert series, educational programs or designated spaces allow donors to specify a name or tribute for ten years, twenty years or in perpetuity.
