San Francisco Symphony: Beethoven's 4th Symphony, Adams
$34.00 - $92.00
$17.00 - $46.00*
Michael Tilson Thomas conducts the San Francisco Symphony in a program of works by Beethoven, as well as a new work commissioned for the SFS from Pulitzer Prize-winning composer John Adams. The concert culminates in a performance of Beethoven's Symphony No. 4. One of the composer's more rarely performed symphonies, the 4th is a bright and tuneful work full of memorable melodies. Commissioned to mark the SFS's hundredth anniversary, Adams' Absolute Jest
made its premiere in 2012. It's packed with clever allusions to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony and late string quartets, and the St. Lawrence String Quartet makes a guest appearance. Another guest, tenor Michael Fabiano, sings Beethoven's An die ferne Geliebte
(To the distant beloved
), the first song cycle ever written. Beethoven's Three Equali for Four Trombones open the show.

Two iconic American rock groups will share the stage at the Fabulous Forum this summer as Cheap Trick joins Boston for their "Heaven on Earth" tour. Known for their killer pop hooks, Boston sold millions during the '70s and '80s with their catchy version of prog rock. Their self-titled debut was one of the fastest-selling pop debuts in history, spawning three hit singles that became American classics: "More Than a Feeling," "Long Time" and "Peace of Mind." At the same time, Cheap Trick was perfecting the delicate balance between power pop and hard rock that made them a major influence on future punk, metal and alternative bands. Songs like "I Want You to Want Me," "Surrender" and "Dream Police," along with their dynamic live performances, sealed their reputation as arena rock gods. Now, 40 years into their careers, the two bands are still going strong. The "Heaven on Earth" tour is traveling the country in support of Boston's sixth studio album release, Life, Love & Hope, and this is one of a select few appearances where Cheap Trick will be performing with them.
