MTT conducts a luxuriant program by some of Russia’s finest storytellers and orchestrators. First, Rimsky-Korsakov's Dubinushka (The Little Oak Stick)—a swaggering march inspired by a protest song he heard from an anti-tsar student uprising—bookended with another boldly defiant work: the landmark ballet The Firebird. MTT brings personal insight into Stravinsky’s opulent masterpiece, having known and performed with the composer. Also on the program, the SFS welcomes the fiery virtuosity of San Francisco favorite Gautier Capuçon for a journey into the turbulent mindscape of Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 2.
