Why See San Francisco Symphony - Gil Shaham and Tchaikovskys Fourth Symphony?
Gil Shaham Performs Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto
The San Francisco Symphony and its fearless music director Michael Tilson Thomas welcome virtuoso violin player Gil Shaham to the Davies Symphony Hall stage for Prokofiev's warm and romantically lyrical Violin Concerto No. 1. Praised for his luminous tone, Shaham deftly balances speed, precision and technical prowess with an unbridled passion when it comes to live performance - his quirky stage presence is filled with an energetic movement and budding enthusiasm so infectious that simply makes him a joy to watch.
The evening's program also includes a dazzling world premiere work by Grammy Award-winning American composer Steven Mackey, widely regarded as one of the foremost writers for orchestra, chamber ensembles, dance and opera. The evening closes with Tchaikovsky's rousing Symphony No. 4, which opens with the famous fate fanfare before traversing great soaring highs and bittersweet, poignant lows influenced by the composer's struggles and triumphs over writer's block, depression and failed love.
