SFSO (Jeff Anderson, principal tuba) in Carnegie Hall

Postby bloke » Tue Sep 25, 2018 1:13 pm

As Mr. Anderson and his orchestra are both extraordinarily fine...and as the New York/Philadelphia area is such a large population conglomerate...I thought I would post about this.

The San Francisco Symphony will be performing BOTH Le sacre du printemps and Pétrouchka on the same concert on October 4th at 8 P.M. at Carnegie.

The info indicates that the least expensive tickets are only $19, but I have no idea who qualifies for those.

I heard them in 1981, a really good group.

As it so happens I'm going to be in NYC Thursday night and could go to this show - thanks for posting it.

The NY Phil is also playing that night and their program is:

Louis Andriessen: Agamemnon (World Premiere–New York Philharmonic Commission)
Stravinsky: Violin Concerto
Stravinsky: Symphonies of Wind Instruments (1947 version)
Debussy: La Mer

Which should I go to, given that I've never seen either group perform live?

I vote for the NY Phil, since they are the hometown group. Avery Fisher Hall (or whatever they call it now) and Lincoln Center are worth seeing on their own.

I like the SFSO program better, but save SFSO for a trip to SF.

Things like this make me miss living in the city.

+1

Plus, the Stravinsky "Symphonies of Wind Instruments" is a really cool piece (I played it once many years ago), and isn't programmed nearly as much as the ones being performed by the SFSO.

Why limit ones entertainment choices, that particular evening, to "orchestra concerts"?

Why not catch up on "Better Call Saul" episodes via on-demand...

...or wager on some pit bull fights in some dive down in Delaware..??

BCS is a sad spin-off of the original and I used to live in Delaware -- I only go back when forced or paid. :D

This makes good sense, thanks! I'm currently on a flight that arrives too late to make it, but I'm going to try to switch that around today.

It makes perfect sense to me, too.

After all, San Francisco is only 3000 miles away from New York, and New Yorker tuba players can hear the San Francisco Symphony and Mr. Anderson any ol' time, whereas opportunities to hear the New York Philharmonic in New York are far more limited. Additionally, with all of the folks here who dream of some sort of future involvement with symphony orchestras, how could it possibly be useful to listen to one of America's premiere orchestral tuba players perform two works which (one: always, the other: often) appear on orchestra jobs audition lists?

' probably best, actually, to just listen to the New York Philharmonic...or Shania Twain - on the evening of October 4th - on SiriusXM radio, since its cheaper.

:roll: :lol:

My advice was for Tim, who lives in Denver -- closer to SF than NY. Anyone who lives in NY already -- yes, makes sense to see SFSO. But for someone who lives closer to SF than NY... maybe better to see the NY Phil.

Is there *really* a bad choice here?

How often one visits these two cities would be more important in the calculation that actual proximity. Many folks visit New York MUCH more often than SF. If the OP travels New York every 2-3 years and San Francisco every 10-15 years, seeing SFSO might make more sense...

Another consideration is that MTT will be retiring in 2020. Seeing SFSO with MTT is a treat and if you haven't seen them together, there isn't much time left. I feel very fortunate to live in the SF Bay Area and that I get to hear them perform multiple times a year.

I've decided! I'm going to see the San Francisco team! (Actually it was never a contest --- I have subscription tickets to that one!)
