San Francisco Symphony
MTT conducts the orchestra in a Russian program that brings together Stravinsky's thrilling 1910 ballet score The Firebird and Shostakovich's stormy Cello Concerto No. 2 featuring Frenchman Gautier Capuçon. The maestro's own jazz-infused piece for symphonic brass, Street Song, will raise the curtain.
