CONDUCTOR MASAAKI SUZUKI MAKES HIS SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY DEBUT, WITH PRINCIPAL BASSOON STEPHEN PAULSON AS SOLOIST, FEBRUARY 5-6 AT DAVIES SYMPHONY HALL
European-inspired concert features works by Haydn, Mozart, Stravinsky, and Mendelssohn
SAN FRANCISCO, January 7, 2016 – Conductor Masaaki Suzuki makes his San Francisco Symphony debut February 5-6 at Davies Symphony Hall, featuring Principal Bassoon Stephen Paulson as soloist in Mozart’s Bassoon Concerto in B-flat major. The concert repertoire draws inspiration from various European centers and includes Haydn’s Symphony No. 95—one of the composer’s London symphonies, Stravinsky’s Concerto in D major, Basle, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 4, Italian. Mozart’s popular Bassoon Concerto—the first concerto he ever wrote for a wind instrument—was written in Germany when he was just 18 years old.
