One of the most exciting young artists performing today joins the San Francisco Symphony for this concert at Davies Hall. Pianist Jonathan Biss made his New York recital and New York Philharmonic debuts at age 20 and his Carnegie Hall recital debut last season. This season he continues performing around the world, sharing his enthusiasm for music and the piano with fans. Hailed as a "musician's musician," he'll take the stage for Schumann's Piano Concerto, an effervescent work that started out as a shorter piece -- but Schumann's wife, virtuoso pianist Clara Wieck, urged him to expand on it. It has long ranked among the world's most beloved concertos. You'll also hear Schumann's Genoveva Overture, the U.S. premiere of Ivan Fedele's Scena and Schubert's warmhearted Symphony No. 3, which he wrote when he was just 18. Roberto Abbado conducts.
