The San Francisco Symphony's celebration of Leonard Bernstein's 100th birth year continues for this concert at Davies Symphony Hall, with Maestro Michael Tilson Thomas wielding the baton. You'll get to hear Bernstein's brilliant "The Age of Anxiety", a vivid symphonic poem about four disenchanted strangers in post-war New York who bond over their shared struggle to find meaningful relationships and restore their fractured faith in society. Experience the potency of this narrative as it's performed by pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet (called "poetic and powerful" by "The Washington Post"), and showcased on his recent album release, "Bernstein: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2". Also on the program is R. Strauss' "Ein Heldenleben".
