Why See San Francisco Symphony - Schumann, Liszt, and Brahms?
Gothic tales, cheery countryside scenes and a work 26 years in the making form the basis of this Romantic trio, conducted by Frances's Francois Xavier Roth and featuring the San Francisco Symphony Debut of fellow countryman Cedric Tiberghein.
Beginning with a foray into the man, bad, and dangerous to know mind of Lord Byron, as imagined by Schumann's adaptation of his famed poem, Manfred (so popular there's a Minnesotan township named after it), the intensity continues with Liszt's long gestated, blazing Piano Concerto No.1. Finally, the evening will move into more gentle climes as the Symphony tackle Brahms' Symphony No.2. Written in 1877, it challenges the dark and stormy precedent set by his 1st with bubbling warmth and joyful melodies sure to elicit a smile or two.
