The best and most convenient place to eat before the concert is at Jardiniere. Also, you can stop for a drink afterwards.

The Davies Symphony has gorgeous architecture, with views of the city. In nights when it's not completely packed, there's actually plenty of space inside and outside the concert hall

Description

Michael Francis, conductor

Daniel Müller-Schott, cello

San Francisco Symphony

Tchaikovsky: _Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture _

Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4

Intensity. Passion. Beauty. Drama. Listeners will be treated to all these and more in this showcase of Tchaikovsky’s music. Opening the program is the heart-wrenching Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture, which is surely the very sound of longing. The elegant Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra reveals a more reserved Tchaikovsky, while the Fourth Symphony is Tchaikovsky at his most forceful, where his internal torment finally surges into his music.
