MTT and the San Francisco Symphony kick off the 2013-14 Season with a festive program of American masterpieces. The riotous Jazz Symphony by twentieth-century "bad boy" George Antheil precedes Samuel Barber’s soulful Violin Concerto, featuring thrilling virtuoso James Ehnes. The program concludes with An American in Paris, Gershwin’s jazzy, rhapsodic portrait of the French capital seen through American eyes.
