Lara St. John opens the SFSO season playing Tchaikovsky’s Violin Concerto
“Lara St. John squeezes the soul out of a note or a melody. She went to the emotional in the Tchaikovsky, communing with its fire and sweetness — as if she were Russian-born, this Canadian fiddler”. ~ San Jose Mercury News
Bruckner’s works are vast, of epic design, and on a monumental scale, often entering into the realm of the grandiose and sublime.
Bruckner himself gave the title Romantic to the 4th Symphony. He meant this not in the modern, emotional sense, but suggesting a medieval story of love and chivalry. The SFSO celebrates its 15th Anniversary with its first performance ever of a Bruckner Symphony.
