About this Performance
The LA Phil’s Conductor Laureate—now Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony—exults in a program that includes his tribute to Frank Gehry, a major premiere by the exceedingly creative Gabriella Smith, and Strauss’ whirlwind of a symphonic poem that begins with an awesome fanfare to end all fanfares, well known for its use in 2001: A Space Odyssey.See other concerts in this series
