Event Description

In his New World Symphony, Antonín Dvořák recounts his impressions of America and nods to the music he heard there, without straying too far from his Czech roots. Led by conductor Xian Zhang, the program includes two SF Symphony premieres: Nokuthula Ngwenyama’s deeply heartfelt Primal Message for percussion, harp, and strings, and Florence Price’s Piano Concerto, which deftly packs a broad emotional range into its single-movement span, featuring acclaimed jazz and classical pianist Aaron Diehl.
