SF Symphony was wonderful. The bonus was Sibelius' violin concerto -- fabulous!

Great deal on the ticket price. The seats were nice and it wasn't a sold out performance so there was plenty of space to stretch out. There also was a free wine tasting event before the show so wish I had gotten there even earlier to enjoy that...continued

The performance was wonderful! Parking was a block and a half away, a 2 minute walk, and it was a completely wonderful experience! Would definitely recommend to friends and family!

Description

Osmo Vänskä, conductor

Vadim Repin, violin

Sibelius: Violin Concerto

Beethoven: Coriolan Overture

Beethoven: Symphony No. 8  

At this concert, you’ll hear the conductor briefly share unique perspectives on the composer, the work, and its place in musical history. Experience two sides of Beethoven: the Classical symphonist and the passionate dramatist. The San Francisco Symphony presents Beethoven’s searing Overture to Coriolan and his tightly-wound Eighth Symphony. Violinist Vadim Repin will shine performing Sibelius’s Violin Concerto, a virtuosic masterpiece.

Meet Vadim Repin at an exclusive CD signing immediately following the concert at the Symphony Store in the lobby.
