Event Description

Indulge in the music of three great Romantics with French conductor François-Xavier Roth and the San Francisco Symphony. Hear Brahms' Second Symphony, a piece with an airy, bucolic atmosphere—like the lakeside resort where it was written—and the explosive energy of Liszt’s First Piano Concerto performed by French pianist Cédric Tiberghien in his San Francisco Symphony debut. Also on the program, Schumann’s portrait of Lord Byron’s tormented youth, Manfred.

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.
