Experience the wildly talented SF Symphony Youth Orchestra in Mahler’s spellbinding First Symphony, a vast musical journey through a microcosm of the world. Sounds of nature drift into a funeral march parody, bawdy cabaret tunes, and foot-stomping folk songs before explosive brass herald the glorious climax. Also on the program, Mendelssohn’s roiling Scottish scene, Fingal’s Cave Overture, and Mahlerwerk—a kaleidoscope of hundreds of fragments from all nine Mahler symphonies—by former SFSYO violinist Nathaniel Stookey.
