Prepare for a stunning combination of film and music as the Pittsburgh Symphony completes a trilogy of NASA films, and gives the U.S. premiere of 2016-2017 Composer of the Year Sir James MacMillan’s Symphony No. 4. First taken to outer space by Neil Armstrong on Apollo 11, Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9, “From the New World,” will be performed by the Pittsburgh Symphony and Manfred Honeck paired with high-definition footage of the cosmos. The program opens with Beethoven’s striking Overture to Egmont.
