Performance Today

Mahler's Fifth from Berlin

The Pittsburgh Symphony just wrapped up a 12-concert European tour. Perhaps the most special of all 12 of those concerts was on Sunday, September 11th, in Berlin. Music Director Manfred Honeck and the Pittsburgh musicians dedicated their performance of Mahler's Fifth Symphony to all the victims of the September 11th terrorist attacks. Today and tomorrow, we'll hear Mahler's dramatic Fifth Symphony from Berlin.
