About this event

For the second of their two concerts, the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra preface Mahler's turbulent and heart-wrenching Fifth Symphony with lyrical music by one of the most distinguished and prolific of contemporary German composers.

It has been 35 years since Anne-Sophie Mutter's breakthrough debut at the age of 13. Her willingness to champion the music of our own time has been one of the defining qualities of a violinist renowned for her flawless technique and impassioned playing style.
