Currently artistic director and chief conductor of the China Philharmonic Orchestra, music director of the Shanghai Symphony and artistic director of the Guangzhou Symphony Orchestra, distinguished Chinese conductor Long Yu makes his Pittsburgh Symphony debut with Pictures at an Exhibition. Mussorgsky’s showpiece for piano, later orchestrated by Ravel, vividly depicts 10 paintings by Mussorgsky’s friend Viktor Hartmann. Principal viola Randolph Kelly takes center stage for Paganini’s virtuosic Sonata per la Grand Viola, which was given its Pittsburgh premiere by Kelly.
