SAN FRANCISCO, October 9 – Conductor Andrey Boreyko makes his San Francisco Symphony debut October 28-30 in Davies Symphony Hall, leading the Orchestra and violinist Gidon Kremer in Bartók’s Violin Concerto No. 1, along with performances of Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé Suite and Tchaikovsky’s Orchestral Suite No. 3 in G major.
Boreyko is considered one of the most exciting and dynamic conductors to emerge from Eastern Europe in recent years. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch says of Boreyko, “‘Revelatory’ is not too strong a word for his conducting. He knows precisely what he wants and how to elicit it, and the players seemed to enjoy providing it.” A prolific performer and recording artist, Gidon Kremer makes only his fourth appearance with the SFS in these concerts; he debuted with the Orchestra in 1979 with Edo de Waart, and most recently performed Sofia Gubaidulina’s Offertorium, Concerto for Violin and Orchestra in October 2005, with Kurt Masur conducting.
