Description

*Artists: *

- David Robertson, conductor

- Nelson Freire, piano

- San Francisco Symphony

David Robertson leads a program of contrasting emotional content. Rossini’s overture is widely loved for its wit and sparkle, and Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto, with its mazurka-themed final movement, reveals Chopin’s blossoming compositional exuberance. Dvořák’s Seventh Symphony is darker, suggesting that even the sunniest of personalities has moments of doubt. His distinct personality and style still shine through, even amidst the air of sadness.

*Program: *

Rossini: Overture to L’Italiana in Algeri

Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2

Dvořák: Symphony No. 7
