BNY Mellon Grand Classics: BOLERO!
An evening of French music to enchant! (Coincidentally, all of it was originally written for ballet.) French conductor Yan Pascal Tortelier returns to the Pittsburgh Symphony to celebrate the city of Paris. The program’s second half offers movements from Offenbach’s La Gaîté Parisienne, depicting a scene from a fashionable Parisian café in the mid-1800s. To follow, the orchestra will perform Ravel’s pulsating Boléro, which premiered at the Paris Opera in November 1928. Tortelier also leads the orchestra in a performance of Stravinsky’s Pétrushka, which tells the story of the loves and jealousies among three puppets. Maestro Tortelier chose to perform the 1947 version, which is the same year of his birth, in celebration of his 70th birthday!
In a report by the state recovery coordinators, responsible for guiding the city governments financial comeback, is recommending Pittsburgh exit distressed status under state Act 47 designed to help struggling municipalities steady their finances. The guidance comes after Mayor Peduto's announcement that he would seek to remove the designation by early 2018. The report said "The city has strategies in place to address its primary legacy costs — employee pensions, retired employee health care and workers' compensation — while maintaining its workforce and increasing the necessary investment in Pittsburgh's infrastructure."
