Beethoven's in the Spotlight at SF Symphony This Spring
Beethoven's genius is on full display during three riveting programs offered at the San Francisco Symphony this spring.
From February 9–12, hear internationally-acclaimed pianist Yefim Bronfman perform Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto, a work that has been hailed as the most, singular, artistic, and complex concerto the composer has ever written.
Then, from March 9–12, the Orchestra performs the Coriolan Overture, Beethoven's depiction of the cruelty of war alongside Brahms' lush and lyrical Fourth Symphony. The program also features violinist Arabella Steinbacher performing Hindemith's powerful Violin Concerto.
Finally, March 16–18, experience Beethoven's Symphony No. 7, part tumultuous, part mysterious, and all joy, along with Gil Shaham performing Baber's virtuosic Violin.
Is there such as thing as too much Beethoven? Probably not.
