Event Description

Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony is a sunny celebration filled with folk tunes he heard on a holiday with family. Sergei Prokofiev’s Second Violin Concerto contrasts a darkly lyrical opening and a vigorous finale, performed here by violinist James Ehnes. To open the program conducted by Elim Chan, the SF Symphony commissioned a new work from Elizabeth Ogonek, whose Sleep & Unremembrance was hailed last season as “a marvelous musical dreamscape” by the San Francisco Chronicle.
