Event Description

Cellist Gautier Capuçon joins Michael Tilson Thomas and the Orchestra for the U.S. premiere of the Cello Concerto by heralded film and concert composer Danny Elfman. The program is framed by showpieces for two sections of the SF Symphony: Igor Stravinsky’s Symphonies of Wind Instruments marries the composer’s flair for shock and drama with perhaps an even greater surprise, a supremely serene and understated finale. The string section gets the last word with Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s charming and sumptuously romantic Serenade for Strings.
