Event Description

Experience the passions of springtime in this romantic event at the symphony. The renowned conductor Marek Janowski conducts works by music’s master of sensuality, Richard Wagner. Hear Tannhäuser’s hedonistic adventure in the Venusberg followed by the enrapturing Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde. Plus, the “fierce and impressive” (San Francisco Classical Voice) James Ehnes turns up the bravado in Bruch’s rousing Violin Concerto No. 1.

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

Open Rehearsals are working rehearsals. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
