In the final San Francisco Symphony Youth Orchestra performance of the season, our young musicians deliver an eclectic spectrum of works by history’s giants and today’s icons. First, an enigmatic masterpiece: Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony. Inexplicably abandoned with only two movements composed—and not premiered until nearly 40 years after Schubert’s death—the work was hailed by the composer’s friend as “a treasure, . . . on a level with any one of the symphonies by Beethoven.” Next, Eating Greens, a colorful and wildly creative piece by Grammy award-winning contemporary composer Steven Mackey. The Youth Orchestra’s performance season closes on a high note with the glorious melodies and sunny atmosphere of Brahms’ Symphony No. 2.
