Description

Join us for some of the most beautiful and romantic Russia music ever written on Sunday, May 5, 2019 at 2:00 PM, as ARCA favorite, pianist and program host David Allen Wehr, brings ROMANTIC RUSSIA: Rhapsodies of Spring, a concert from Duquesne University’s celebrated “Moscow on the Bluff” series. Joined by world class soloists and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra Principals – Lorna McGhee, Principal Flute and Anne Martindale Williams, Principal Cello, the program features glorious piano works of Rachmaninov as well as master works of the chamber music literature – the Rachmaninov Sonata in G minor for cello and piano and Prokofiev Sonata in D major for Flute and Piano. Immediately following the concert, the audience is invited to meet the artists at a post concert reception in the Red Brick Gallery and Gift Shop from 4 to 6 PM.

A favorite of Foxburg audiences, international competition winner, pianist David Allen Wehr will serve as the program host for the concert, providing enlightening insights on the music and composers sure to delight and charm the audience. In recent years David has brought to Lincoln Hall two concerts from the “Schubert on the Bluff” series, including PSO Principal Flute Lorna McGhee’s brilliant and virtuosic Flute Variations on “Trockne Blumen” from “Die Schöne Müllerin”.

This also is a return to Lincoln Hall for Pittsburgh Symphony’s celebrated Principal Cellist, Anne Martindale Williams, who has collaborated with guest artists such as Yehudi Menuhin, André Previn, the Emerson Quartet, Lynn Harrell, Joshua Bell, Gil Shaham and Pinchas Zukerman in numerous chamber music performances and made her London debut performing Dvořák’s Cello Concerto with the Royal Philharmonic, Andre Previn conducting. In 2013, Ms. Williams performed an ARCA summer concert in Lincoln Hall with PSO Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley and PSO Principal Harp Gretchen Van Hoesen.
