Camerata Concert/April 2017
Organization: St. Vincent Basilica Parish
Description: The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, under the direction of Maestro Manfred Honeck, will perform Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8 at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29 at Saint Vincent Basilica.
A pre-concert reception will be held at the Fred M. Rogers Center on the Saint Vincent campus at 5:30 p.m.
Bruckner’s Symphony No. 8 rises from a hushed, mystical opening to a noble third movement and triumphant finale and features some of the most ecstatic music that the composer has ever created. Deep and rich in its sonority and exquisitely detailed in its architecture, the work is thought by many to be Bruckner’s crowning musical achievement.
The evening’s concert will begin with a performance by the Saint Vincent College Singers of Bruckner’s sacred motet, Locus Iste, written in 1869 for a Mass celebrating the dedication of a chapel at the Cathedral in Linz, Austria.
Honeck and members of the symphony will make a guest appearance at the pre-concert reception.
