It’s 1791 in 2009 with the Pittsburgh Symphony Book Club

Last time around, the Pittsburgh Symphony Book Club included a bassoon solo by the PSO’s  James Rodgers and an almost hour long phone call from Vivaldi’s Virgins author Barbara Quick!

The Pittsburgh Symphony Book Club’s second session will be about the book 1791, Mozart’s Last Year by H. C. Robbins Landon.  Read it and find out about Mozart’s debts, his wardrobe, the milieu of Vienna, his declining health, and most important, the stories behind his final masterpieces.

Date:  Monday, November 9, 2009

Time: 6:00 p.m.

Location: Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main Library (Oakland) — Music Department


Once again, let’s review why you should attend!

  • a member of the illustrious Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra will be participating in the discussion — for this session it’s cellist Charlotta Klein Ross
  • local radio celebrity Jim Cunningham of WQED-FM will also be there
  • since it takes place in the Music Department, other materials relating to the subject will be on hand for you to check out
  • it’s an informal discussion so don’t fret if you don’t finish the book
  • you may attend any or all of the meetings
  • it’s free

Please call 412-622-3105 to register.
