Event Description

San Francisco Symphony Conductor Laureate Herbert Blomstedt brings his ageless vigor and vast experience to these radical, revelatory Romantic works. Although audiences went wild at the 1813 premiere of Beethoven's Seventh, the critics hated it. One sniped that Beethoven must have composed it while drunk; another called him “ripe for the madhouse.” Composed five years later, Schubert's Sixth wears its Beethovenian heart proudly on its sleeve while speaking a language all its own.

These concerts are supported in part by the Margaret Koshland Sloss Tribute Fund.
