A varied program with the full S.F. Symphony conducted by Osmo Vanska, conductor of the Minneapolis Symphony Orchestra. The first piece, Slonimsky's Earbox, by John Adams, was truly a thrill for the ears and mind. Wonderfully energetic and melodic, yet still with Adams' repetitive refrains.It was really good to hear The Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 played LIVE, since one usually hears recordings of this composition. Since I sat in the Second tier, the players seemed rather far away, but the music soars up to that elevation so beautifully. A very good evening at a very fair price.
