“Music On The Edge” Presents International Contemporary Ensemble: Jan. 9

The University of Pittsburgh’s innovative “Music on the Edge” series brings the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) to The Andy Warhol Museum. This group of more than 30 musicians has won high praise from The New York Times and The New Yorker. In Pittsburgh, ICE makes good on its name, playing new music by Finland’s Kaija Saariaho and Magnus Lindberg, Germany’s Reiko Fueting, Greece’s Panayiotis Kokoras and America’s Amy Williams, who is on the faculty at Pitt. (117 Sandusky St., North Shore. Sat., Jan. 9, 8 p.m. $8.50. Tickets: 412/394-3353, proartstickets.org)
 

Emperor Concerto: Jan. 22-23

Anton Bruckner is buried underneath his organ in Linz, Austria, where he played and dreamt up sounds such as his Seventh Symphony. The Seventh lasts a luxurious 75 minutes and will chase away a January chill when the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra and music director Manfred Honeck present it. Favorite guest pianist Emanuel Ax offers a suitably grand Emperor Concerto No. 5 by Beethoven. (Heinz Hall, Sixth Street, downtown. Jan. 22-23: Fri.-Sat., 8 p.m. $20-$83. Tickets: 412/392-4900, Pittsburghsymphony.Org)
 

Mahler’s Chamber Symphony: Jan. 29, 31

Manfred Honeck played violin and viola as a member of the Vienna Philharmonic. Now he presents three Viennese superstars—Mozart, Haydn and Mahler—and is joined by Gil Shaham, who does double-duty in Haydn and Mozart concertos, and Korean soprano Sunhae Im for the Mahler Fourth Symphony. (Heinz Hall, Sixth Street, downtown. Jan. 29, 31: Fri., 8 p.m.; Sun., 2:30 p.m. Tickets: $17.50-$83. Tickets: 412/392-4900, pittsburghsymphony.org)
