This concert was recorded live at Heinz Hall on March 4, 2021. This program features new visions of stellar works: a new arrangement by Music Director Manfred Honeck of one of Beethoven’s most popular string quartets; following its world premiere in December 2020, the PSO premiere of Stride, Clyne’s reimagination of the stride baseline from Beethoven’s “Pathetique”; and Shchedrin’s new conception of the Carmen Suite, an enchanting recasting of Bizet’s alluring melodies in fresh instrumental colors.

Available to stream through April 30 at 11:59 p.m.
