BNY Mellon Grand Classics: Dohnanyi Conducts Brahms
World-renowned German conductor Christoph von Dohnányi returns to conduct the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra after more than a decade since his last appearance. Widely admired for his interpretations of Romantic music, Gramophone described his recording of Schumann’s Symphony No. 4 as “easily the best and most vital of his series, spontaneous in its forward-looking energy.” Paired with Schumann, Dohnányi also will present the second chapter of the season-long Brahms cycle with a performance of his rustic Symphony No. 2. With this esteemed conductor joining forces with the distinguished Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, this outstanding weekend of artistic excellence is not one to miss!

The Pittsburgh Steelers and New England Patriots will meet tomorrow what is perhaps the most important game of the regular season. The Steelers lead the AFC at 11-2 with the Patriots trailing just behind at 10-3, and with the winner holding a tiebreaker with only two games to play, it is likely that team would have home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. But both teams have remained dominant all year long. The Patriots have dominated this series in recent years, as Ben Roethlisberger has beaten them only three times.
