Founded in 1911, the San Francisco Symphony has since received some of the world’s most prestigious recording awards. After a one-year interlude, the symphony returns to the Mondavi Center, this time under the baton of Maestro David Robertson. Pianist Kirill Gerstein, the sixth recipient of the Gilmore Artist Award, accompanies the symphony, performing Brahms’ emotionally surging Piano Concerto No. 1, alongside Haydn’s Symphony No. 102 and Brett Dean’s Engelsflügel.
