SFS, This Week and Next

SF Mike at Civic Center had a great post the other week about the upcoming programs at San Francisco Symphony. I agree with every word.

You've missed the (incredible) Ligeti Violin Concerto, but this week's program of Janacek's Sinfonietta and Debussy's Le martyr de Saint Sebastien should be one of the highlights of the season, with its two idiosyncratic and marvelous works. The Janacek isn't done often because....it requires 25 brass. You won't have another shot at it for 10 or 15 years. Goldstar has cheap tickets, so if you haven't bought your Janacek/Debussy ticket yet, go for it.

Pablo Heras-Casado's program next week looks great too! I cannot believe that I will get to hear the Dallapiccola for the second time.
