Pittsburgh nails its conductor for the decade

The Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra survived the overnight departure of its president a few months back. It wasn’t taking any risks on the music director.

Manfred Honeck was given a contract renewal to 2020, and told to sign. He has been there four years, so far, and has turned insitutional uncertainty into sure-footed confidence.

  • Based on his recordings of the Tchaikovsky 5th and the Mahler 1st, 3rd, 4th, and the recently released 5th, I think Pittsburg is very lucky to have him. Horneck is a brilliant conductor who has, in a very short time, made the Pittsburgh Symphony an orchestra to be reckoned with.

    • Forgive the typo—my enthusiasm for Honeck overtook me—perhaps the “r” was meant to be in the “Bravo” I omitted!
