Hope you had a chance to hear the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra perform Bruckner's Symphony No. 7 this weekend. I spent most of my review on it, and music director Manfred Honeck's interpretation, so I didn't have space to mention what encore that Manny Ax played after his performance of Beethoven's "Emperor." He played: Schumann's "Des Abends" from "Fantasiestucke," Op. 12, No. 1. Please tell me what you thought of the concert. If you missed it, here is my piece on Bruckner and Mahler's looking to afterlife.
