depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

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.
