About This Performance
The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and young American violinist Tim Fain will perform Glass’ second violin concerto “The American Four Seasons,” which is considered a modern counterpart to Vivaldi’s popular Four Seasons. German conductor Christoph König returns to the podium, and, along with Glass’ concerto, will conduct the orchestra in a performance of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6. One of his most charming symphonies, it paints a picture of nature and a man’s feelings toward it.
