Found parking in a garage a few blocks away for $8 all day Sunday rate. Arrive in the city 45 minutes early so as not to have to stress over finding parking. Limited on street parking. Spring for a parking lot.

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.
