The San Francisco Symphony performs Mahler’s exquisite Blumine. Originally intended as the second movement of his Symphony No. 1, Mahler later separated this delicate “bouquet of flowers” to stand on its own. Beethoven’s impassioned Third Piano Concerto follows: a work of startling dramatic power, marking the start of the composer’s “heroic” period. No one plays it better than Emanuel Ax, one of the leading pianists today and one of the most insightful Beethoven interpreters of our time. MTT concludes the program with a selection of musical gems sure to surprise and delight.
