FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / SEPTEMBER 12, 2018


SIMONE YOUNG CONDUCTS THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY APRIL 18–20
IN PLACE OF FABIO LUISI

 

SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Conductor Simone Young makes her San Francisco Symphony (SFS) debut April 18–20, 2019 at Davies Symphony Hall, replacing Fabio Luisi. This change is a result of scheduling conflicts with Luisi’s new appointment as Music Director of the Dallas Symphony Orchestra. Young will lead the SFS in Ravel’s Pavane for a Dead Princess and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Opus 35, and will be joined by pianist Louis Lortie for Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major. Luisi’s program, which includes cellist Mario Brunello, has been postponed to a future season.
