San Francisco Symphony, Asia 2016
Nov 2016 - Nov 2016

Introduction

Following their hugely successful Asia tour in 2012, the San Francisco Symphony return four years later, in 2016, with their Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas for a 10-date tour across the continent.

With concerts in Seoul, Tainan, Taipei, Shanghai, Beijing, Osaka and Tokyo, the orchestra and MTT will be joined by the sensational Yuja Wang for performances of Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 2, as well as the Shostakovich Concerto for Piano, Trumpet and Strings alongside SFS Principal Trumpet, Mark Inouye.

The orchestra will explore the full range of their sound through a thrilling contrast of classic orchestral symphonies from Mahler and Bruckner, with bold contemporary works, including MTT’s own orchestral composition, Agnegram.
