About many things in this world there is simply nothing to be said...” Famously expressed by Robert Schumann about Mozart’s “Jupiter” Symphony, the evening takes off with this god-like masterwork. Emerging superstar violinist Bomsori also debuts with the Pittsburgh Symphony with Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto. Originally reviewed as “music that stinks to the ear,” this piece has come full swing to be one of the biggest staples of the classical repertoire.

“Swirling clouds afford glimpses, through rifts, of waltzing couples. The clouds scatter little by little; one can distinguish an immense hall with a whirling crowd.” Ravel poetically paints a picture of whirling ecstasy, capturing the sights and sounds of a dance floor long ago.
