TEXU KIMSpin-Flip
SIBELIUSViolin Concerto in D minor, Op. 47
RACHMANINOFFSymphony No. 3 in A minor, Op. 44

Eun Sun Kim, conductor
Nancy Zhou, violin

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!

Two towering masterpieces of Russian classical music dominate this concert, led by Jahja Ling, who makes his debut as the San Diego Symphony’s first Conductor Laureate. After a brief, jazzy opening excerpt from Leonard Bernstein’s On the Town, Ling leads a performance of that “Everest” of piano concertos, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Third, with rising young Uzbek sensation Behzod Abduraimov as soloist. The concert concludes with Dmitri Shostakovich’s enigmatic, intensely dramatic Symphony No. 5.
