Quotes & Highlights
“[Grimaud’s playing is] marked not only by extreme virtuosity, but by the deepest poetic impulse." —_Newark Star-Ledger _
Ukrainian conductor Kirill Karabits makes his San Francisco Symphony debut with an enthralling program of three deeply impassioned works. The evening begins with the rending Elegie for string orchestra by modern master (and Karabits’s countryman) Valentin Silvestrov. Renowned French dynamo Hélène Grimaud offers her signature interpretation of Schumann’s fiery Piano Concerto, a vital essay of the Romantic literature. Rachmaninoff’s irresistible Symphonic Dances, the composer’s final work, closes the program.
Inside Music, an informative talk with John Palmer, begins one hour prior to both concerts and is free to ticketholders. Off the Podium, an informal Q&A with Hélène Grimaud and Kirill Karabits, begins immediately after Saturday’s performance.
