The most celebrated virtuoso in classical music today, Yo-Yo Ma joins MTT and the San Francisco Symphony for Schumann’s heartrending Cello Concerto. Alongside this quintessential work of the cello concerto repertoire, the San Francisco Symphony presents Beethoven’s Seventh Symphony, whose own ardent strains foreshadow the Romantic language of Robert Schumann, and the tender slow movement of Charles Ives’s Concord Symphony, whose poignant kinship with the music of Beethoven is especially brought to life by Henry Brant’s colorful orchestration.
