Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Christoph König (Jan. 18, Heinz Hall): Saturday night is not generally the time when most rational, pleasure-seeking people are looking to hear a lecture. But in the middle of this PSO concert, Heinz Hall became a lecture hall, and a very good one at that. The subject of the discussion was Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathusta,” whose opening is well-known, somewhat at the expense of the rest of the work. Armed with a piano and PSO musicians, conductor Mr. König illustrated how Strauss matches musical ideas with nonmusical ones.
