Event DescriptionMaking his San Francisco Symphony debut, the 29-year-old South Korean pianist Seong-Jin Cho applies his powerhouse technique and interpretive finesse to Beethoven’s tender, tempestuous Third Concerto. Tchaikovsky’s Fourth Symphony ups the emotional ante with a profoundly personal testimony. As the composer confessed, “there is not a single line in my symphony which I have not felt deeply, and which does not echo true and sincere emotions.”
