Symphony was awesome. The program itself was somewhat less than stellar.

I thought it was one of the worst SF Symphony evenings. Music was terrible.. The Lizst was poor. The Lizeti was abominable, and the Winter Dreams was just okay.. My seat was lousy too.......

Description

Michael Tilson Thomas, conductor

Christian Tetzlaff, violin        

San Francisco Symphony   **

Program:                   

**Liszt: Prometheus   

Ligeti: Violin Concerto          

Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 1, Winter Daydreams 

Representing the first large-scale work of Tchaikovsky’s career, the Symphony No. 1 pays homage to the sounds he experienced daily in his beloved Russia. Ligeti’s Violin Concerto, however, is a gripping work about loss, memory, and neglect. Tetzlaff displays a “rich, velvety tone and an irresistible sense of line” (The New York Times), and his performance will astound the listener with its virtuosity and boldness of sound.
