Former San Francisco Symphony Resident Conductor Edwin Outwater returns to the Symphony to lead a spirited program of Eastern European repertory, full of dance, drama, and Gypsy flair: from Ligeti’s folk-influenced Concert Românesc and Dvořák’s evocative Legends to one of the twentieth century’s great orchestral showpieces, Lutosławski’s kaleidoscopic Concerto for Orchestra. At the program’s center is Prokofiev’s brilliant Third Piano Concerto, featuring the return of piano powerhouse Simon Trpčeski, praised in his last SFS appearance for his “probing and deeply expressive” artistry.
