Conductor Brett Mitchell leads the SF Symphony in an exhilarating concert of masterworks, exploding out of the gate with Wagner’s tempestuous overture to The Flying Dutchman, a swashbuckling maritime opera inspired by one of the composer’s own stormy sea crossings. Then, a masterpiece hailed by many as the most lyrical and influential of its kind—Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto—performed by one of today’s most promising young artists, award-winning Canadian violinist Blake Pouliot.
