Michael Tilson Thomas leads a star-studded program with very special guest artists and the entire San Francisco Symphony family in a tribute to immediate past SFS President John Goldman. The SFS Chorus opens the concert with Ligeti’s transcendent piece made famous by 2001: A Space Odyssey. Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major is infused with cool jazzy sounds brought to life by Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Gil Shaham performs the finale from Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto, one of the most loved violin concertos. The fourth movement of Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 and Lisa Vroman singing excerpts from South Pacific begin the second half of the program, which promises special surprises for a truly delightful evening celebrating John Goldman's tenure, 2001-2012.
This concert benefits the Orchestra’s Pension Fund.
