A composer's tribute to World War II aviators and a piano concerto that Beethoven completed while Vienna was bombarded by the French are featured in the Duluth Superior Symphony Orchestra's "The World at War."

Saturday's concert is the sixth of seven marking the orchestra's 75th anniversary and highlights the years from 1942-47 when Tauno Hannikainen was its second music director.

Samuel Barber's "Night Flight" is a musical depiction of the loneliness and tension of a night pilot. Guest pianist Joseph Kalichstein will highlight the orchestra's performance of Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concert, which also is known as the "Emperor." Also on the program is Aaron Copeland's Third Symphony, which was inspired by World War II.

The Masterworks concert begins at 8 p.m. Saturday in the DECC Auditorium.

Tickets cost $20-$46 for adults, $18-$44 for seniors and $10-$23 for students. Call Ticketmaster at 727-2121 or go to www.ticketmaster.com .
