BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Beethoven Piano Concertos
April brings a two-week Viennese celebration with a festival designed by Music Director Manfred Honeck to explore one of the most artistically fruitful moments in music history. Early 19th-century Vienna was the greenhouse in which Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert all creatively blossomed, composing some of their most delightful and best-loved orchestral works. Maestro Honeck conducts a program of surprises and highlights, complete with the return of fellow Austrian and Pittsburgh favorite, pianist Till Fellner, who will enchant and charm with Beethoven's Piano Concertos No. 2 and 3.

The American Civil Liberties Union is angry with Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe after they say he blamed the organization for the violence in Charlottesville last Saturday.
