Budapest on the Bluff: String Theory
Part of the five-concert series Budapest on the Bluff,
This all-string program runs the gamut from the playfulness of "Papa", Haydn's recollection of the Gypsy dances of his youth, through the harrowing intensity of Kodály's monumental work for solo cello (a star turn for Adam Liu), reveling in the lushness of Dohnányi's virtually unknown Violin Sonata, ending with the affectionate and affecting Rumanian Dances of Bartók and the devilish showpiece Tzigane (Gypsy). PSO Concertmaster Noah Bendix-Balgley makes his highly-anticipated debut "on the Bluff."
3 p.m., concert, PNC Recital Hall, Mary Pappert School of Music, Duquesne University, 600 Forbes Ave., Pittsburgh.
