CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Saturday, April 8, 2017 | 8 PM

San Francisco Symphony

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Michael Tilson Thomas is one of our era’s most critically acclaimed conductors of Mahler's masterpieces, and this concert shows why. Mahler never lived to complete anything more than the opening Adagio of his Symphony No. 10, but the movement’s power and pathos makes it one of the composer’s most compelling works. Mahler’s First Symphony has power too, but it’s the elemental sounds of nature, the innocence of folk song, and a spectacular transcendent climax that grip the audience.
