The pianist was really terrible. He attacked the piano as if were a wild beast that needed taming. He had no musical sense at all. Members of the orchestra obviously felt the same way.

The second half of the program was FABULOUS!

Mr Yundi performed beautifully and it was good to see H. Blomstedt
again as the guest conductor.
the seat was very good and Davis Hall is always a delight , specially
when the music is good.
even people behaved well- no cell phones went off ,...continued

Description

Herbert Blomstedt, conductor

Yundi Li, piano

San Francisco Symphony

Program:

Tchaikovsky :Piano Concerto No. 1

Sibelius: Symphony No. 2

Herbert Blomstedt leads the San Francisco Symphony through two intensely emotional works. Tchaikovsky’s captivating First Piano Concerto may reference a lost love, while the soaring Second Symphony of Jean Sibelius captures a sense of national pride that made him a Finnish cultural hero.
