San Francisco tuba virtuoso Zachariah Spellman will play Vaughan William’s Tuba Concerto, a work described by Music Director & Conductor Mitchell Sardou Klein as “a magnificent and utterly delightful concerto for tuba and orchestra.” Then we will welcome one of San Francisco’s favorite performers, bassoonist Rufus Olivier, to our stage for two wonderful concertos: Vivaldi’s lovely Concerto in E minor, and Weber’s stunning tour-de-force, the Andante and Hungarian Rondo.
Finally, the outstanding pianist, Heidi Hau, joins us to perform Shostakovich’s magnificent Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Major. This is one of Shostakovich’s most enchanting and dance-like works. “It has a sense of bubbling, pulsating energy and moments of deeply intimate sweetness – it is really a masterwork,” states Klein.
Forming bookends around the performances of these three spectacular soloists, the Symphony will perform two virtuoso orchestral works: opening the program with Elgar’s tribute to the city of London, Cockaigne; and ending with Rimsky-Korsakov’s thrilling Capriccio Espagnol.
