The San Francisco Symphony released the details of their 2013-14 season this morning and shortly after reviewing it, I received an email from Patrick asking me what I thought about it. After re-reading my response to him, I realized I may as well share it with all of you, so here it is:
There's a lot more I didn't mention, including the returns of Yo-Yo Ma, Yuja Wang, Dmitri Hvorostovsky, the Labeque sisters, so take a look for yourself. As Lisa points out in her own post, it almost rivals the Centennial year in its impressiveness. It certainly solidifies SFS's stature as a leading proponent of innovative orchestral programming and an advocate of contemporary composers. In one sense, it feels like a tipping point for the orchestra. Nicely done.
