San Francisco Symphony – Emanuel Ax Plays Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2
April 12 @ 8:00 pm
Brahms – Piano Concerto No. 2
Zemlinsky – The Mermaid (Die Seejungfrau)
Andrey Boreyko – Conductor
Emanuel Ax – Piano
Arguably “the most distinguished American pianist alive” (The Telegraph), Emanuel Ax adds an almost improvisational fluidity to Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto, a piece that combines harrowing pianism with symphonic muscle. Also on the program, the masterful Russian conductor Andrey Boreyko brings his own brand of passion and nuance as he leads the SF Symphony in Zemlinsky’s lush symphonic fairy tale based on the Hans Christian Andersen tragedy The Little Mermaid.
