Michael Tilson Thomas + The San Francisco Symphony

Fruitful partnership makes sweet, sweet music

"One of the world's happy marriages between orchestra and conductor."

- The New York Times
You know where's cool? San Francisco. That's why we launched there a couple of weeks ago. Michael Tilson Thomas is also very cool. He’s a tireless educator, renowned for his interpretation Mahler. Under his conductorship, the San Francisco Symphony has won 11 Grammy Awards. Pretty legendary. Tonight, they explore Charles Ives’ atmospheric Americana and John Adams energetic concerto. The programme: - Charles Ives: The Alcotts (3rd movement) from Piano Sonata No.2 - John Adams: Absolute Jest - Hector Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique Seating allocated on arrival.
