With a long and distinguished history of touring both domestically and overseas since 1900, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra (PSO) continues to be critically acclaimed as one of the world's greatest orchestras. Known for its artistic excellence, the PSO is credited with a rich history of the world's finest conductors and musicians, and a strong commitment to the cultural landscape of the Pittsburgh region.
This tradition was furthered in fall 2008, when Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck assumed the position of Music Director with the Orchestra. With more than 35 international tours, including 19 European tours, eight trips to the Far East, and two to South America, a Far East Tour in 2002 marked first-time concerts for the Orchestra in Kuala Lumpur and Australia. Reaching a global audience, the PSO was the first American orchestra to perform at the Vatican in January 2004 for the late Pope John Paul II, as part of the Pontiff's Silver Jubilee celebration. The Orchestra also enjoys an equally distinguished record of domestic tours, which over the years have showcased the orchestra in all of America's major cities and music centers, including frequent performances at Carnegie Hall and the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
Denis Matsuev is the featured soloist in Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto. The pianist's stunning victory at the 11th Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998 launched a major international career for the young Siberian pianist. He has appeared in hundreds of recitals at major concert halls throughout the world, including Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, Kennedy Center, La Scala, and many more. Mr. Matsuev has given brilliant performances around the world with orchestras such as the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Royal Scottish National Orchestra, Orchestre National de France, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, and Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra among others.
