SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Austrian conductor Manfred Honeck leads the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) in performances February 22–24, replacing Daniel Harding, who has had to withdraw due to injury.

The program also features spirited works by J. Strauss Jr., including his Furioso Polka, Voices of Spring Waltz, On the Hunt Quick Polka, In Krapfen Woods French Polka, Thunder and Lightning Quick Polka, and the sumptuous Overture to his operetta Die Fledermaus; a polka mazurka by J. Strauss Jr.’s younger brother Josef Strauss The Dragonfly; and Von Suppé’s elegant Overture to Poet and Peasant.
