Michael Tilson Thomas & San Francisco Symphony Come to Carnegie Hall, 3/20-21
Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) and the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) will perform four concerts on their 2013 East Coast tour from March 20 to 23, with performances in New York at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium (March 20-21); in Newark at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center (NJPAC) (March 22); and in Washington, D.C. at the Kennedy Center (March 23). The tour repertoire spans the breadth of MTT and the SFS's hallmark programming, with performances of core repertoire including Mahler, Brahms, and Beethoven, and a contemporary work by American composer Samuel Carl Adams.
The concert programs feature the New York premiere of Samuel Carl Adams's Drift and Providence, a work for large orchestra and live electroacoustic processing performed by Adams, who makes his Carnegie Hall and NJPAC debuts. Yuja Wang joins the Orchestra for Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 4. The Orchestra also performs Brahms's Symphony No. 1 in New York and Newark, and Mahler's Symphony No. 9 in New York and Washington, D.C.
