SUNDAY, SEPT. 28—Monday, Sept. 29 Under the direction of conductor Manfred Honeck, the acclaimed Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra brings two very textured programs on tour. Their Sunday performance features a Mahler symphony and a Rachmaninoff rhapsody, alongside "Rusty Air in Carolina," an electronics-rich piece by DJ-turned-Guggenheim-winning-composer Mason Bates. On Monday, the PSO follows with Steven Stucky's tribute to Rachel Carson's Silent Spring and a Shostakovich symphony on a program that also includes The Elements, a commission for five Pittsburgh-based composers. It's a chance to see Ukrainian-born, North Carolina-based pianist Valentina Lisitsa play live, too. Since launching her career via social media, her YouTube performances have garnered more than 50 million views. Sunday 8 p.m., Monday 7:30 p.m., $10–$69, 114 E Cameron Ave, 919-843-3333, carolinaperformingarts.org. —Chris Vitiello
