San Francisco Symphony
WEDNESDAY, 7 TO 9 PM ON HD-2 AND THE CLASSICAL STREAM

Since its beginning in 1911, the San Francisco Symphony has been known for innovative programs that offer a spectrum of traditional repertory and new music. Today, the Orchestra’s artistic vitality, recordings, and groundbreaking multimedia educational projects carry its impact throughout American musical life.

This season of the San Francisco Symphony highlights astounding performances from the Symphony’s long history, with performances from past SFS Music Directors Herbert Blomstedt and Michael Tilson Thomas alongside prestigious soloists and guest conductors. Esa-Pekka Salonen, the Symphony’s newest Music Director, also takes the stage with a beautiful concert of Britten, Ravel, and Purcell (as arranged by Steven Stucky) to close out the series.
