San Diego Symphony – Sibelius & Rachmaninoff
February 29 @ 8:00 pm
Revel in the majestic scope of Jean Sibelius’ only concerto and Sergei Rachmaninoff’s most personal — and most nostalgically Russian — symphony written while he was in exile in Switzerland and America. But first, discover the playful humor of Korean composer Texu Kim’s Spin-Flip, inspired by the connection between ping-pong and quantum physics. Nancy Zhou, winner of the 2018 Shanghai Isaac Stern International Violin Competition, performs.
The concert is led by Eun Sun Kim, who was recently named as the San Francisco Opera’s next music director – making her the first Asian-heritage woman to hold such a position with an American opera company!
