San Francisco Symphony The S.F. Symphony Plays Prokofiev’s Fifth

Brooding. Volcanic. Cathartic. Prokofiev’s Fifth Symphony symbolizes triumph over adversity. Written at the end of World War II, this powerful piece landed the composer on the cover of Time magazine in 1945, and has been an audience favorite ever since. The concert explodes out of the gate with R. Strauss's Don Juan. Also on the program, the “spellbinding” cellist (The Atlanta Journal-Constitution) Johannes Moser plays Lutosławski's celebrated Cello Concerto in its first performance at Davies Symphony Hall.
