Mahler Symphony No. 9 in D Major
The San Francisco Symphony brings Mahler’s epic Symphony No. 9 to the Mondavi Center in 2020, as Michael Tilson Thomas, the longest-tenured music director at any major American orchestra, bids farewell. MTT and the San Francisco Symphony performed in Jackson Hall on the Mondavi Center’s opening night in 2002, a night in which Tilson Thomas declared Jackson Hall a “wonderful new instrument.” We celebrate his tenure with the SFS and his long association with our beloved hall on this special night.
