Dutoit conducts Beethoven and Shostakovich at Green Music Center

The San Francisco Symphony sets two of Western music’s most potent voices side by side under the expert baton of Charles Dutoit. Beethoven’s Second Piano Concerto, featuring SFS audience favorite Kirill Gerstein, served as one of the composer-virtuoso’s calling cards during his early years in Vienna. Shostakovich answers Beethoven’s graceful concerto with a work of staggering power: his Tenth Symphony, composed after Stalin’s death in 1953, represents one of the most devastating essays in the twentieth-century symphonic literature.

The San Francisco Symphony performs this concert in Weill Hall at Green Music Center at Sonoma State University.  For more information about this beautiful, state-of-the-art venue, please visit sfsymphony.org/greenmusic.
