French pièces de résistance! Québec Symphony Orchestra Music Director Fabien Gabel makes his debut leading the SF Symphony in the alluring, heady ardor of Dukas La Péri, one of the great neglected masterpieces of the early 20th century. Then, wildly virtuosic pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet brings his customary joie de vivre to award-winning film composer Aaron Zigman’s piano concerto, Tango Manos, in its US premiere performances. Saint-Saëns’ cutting-edge, gloriously tuneful Symphony No. 3—the composer’s most famous instrumental work—closes this program with panache.
