Emanuel Ax, "at home in a wide variety of music" with pianism that is "always thoughtful, lyrical, [and] lustrous," (The Washington Post) performs a blockbuster doubleheader of pianos concertos. Then, a German legend is brought to life in R. Strauss’ lively tone poem, Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks, which follows the story of a spirited and sometimes mischievous hero.

Take a peek behind-the-scenes and experience a San Francisco Symphony performance in the making. It begins at 8:30am with coffee, doughnuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am. Then, watch as the conductor and musicians collaborate to bring the music to life.
