Event Description

Igor Levit begins his residency with the San Francisco Symphony with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Fifth Piano Concerto, a work that rose from the ravages of the Napoleonic wars as a musical testament to the people’s heroism and resilience. Then, Esa-Pekka Salonen leads Beethoven’s expansive Symphony No. 3, Eroica, where the struggle between good and evil plays out in the orchestra as heroic themes battle inner demons that lurk not far below. 


 

The San Francisco Symphony is thrilled to welcome renowned pianist, Igor Levit, for a two-week concert residency. Levit, Gramophone's 2020 Artist of the Year, will join the Orchestra for performances of concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven and Ferruccio Busoni, along with chamber performances with members of the SF Symphony, and a solo recital on the Great Performers Series. Levit became a household name in 2020 when he presented a daily concert online from his home for fifty consecutive days, bringing music, hope, and connection to people around the world during the first months of the COVID-19 pandemic.
