Why See San Francisco Symphony - Michael Tilson Thomas?
A Match Made In CLASSICAL Heaven
If ever there was the perfect combination of composer, conductor and orchestra, San Francisco Symphony's forthcoming performances of Mahler, helmed by the orchestra's Music Director of 20 years Michael Tilson Thomas, is it! The renowned conductor has won 7 Grammys for his recordings of Mahler's Symphonies, so the late-Romantic classical music icon's work is indeed in safe hands.
The evening will be comprised of two performances, Adagio from Symphony No.10, one of the composer's last works before his death in 1911, and Symphony No. 1, a complex and initially misunderstood debut inspired by the sounds of nature. Ending in a thunderous climax of french horns, bass drums and cymbals, it's a rousing piece that is now one of Mahler's most played works.
Opening night: 31 March 2017
