Davies Symphony Hall
201 Van Ness Ave, San Francisco, CA 94102
"Ferociously intense" ("The Guardian") violinist Leila Josefowicz performs the piece John Adams composed for her, "Scheherazade.2", in this San Francisco Symphony concert conducted by Michael Tilson Thomas. Josefowicz's recording of the work, which celebrates female strength, recently nabbed her a Grammy nomination. The evening closes with selections from Prokofiev's enchanting "Romeo and Juliet", which contains the iconic and ominous "Montagues and Capulets, or Dance of the Knights". The work brought MTT and the San Francisco Symphony their first Grammy together. Don't miss this spirited concert at Davies Symphony Hall.
