Finale includes a quotation from Anton Webern's symphony Op.21 (not known to be a favorite of Hindemith's, I think- at least, Hindemith was regarded as not being a "fan" of music written using serial "techniques".
"Paul Hindemith wrote the Pittsburgh Symphony, his sixth and final symphony, at the request of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra's then-music director William Steinberg in 1958 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the founding of the city." - from James Leonard's description at All Music Guide
