During his 25 years with the San Francisco Symphony, Michael Tilson Thomas has cultivated an identity marked by dynamism, placing invigorating performances of masterworks alongside compositions from our own time—and from his own pen. This week, MTT conducts his 2012 composition Lope, a whimsical piece about walking the dog—from the dog’s perspective—side-by-side with 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.
