Thomas Wilkins & Branford Marsalis
May 4 @ 2:00 PM PDT
Thomas Wilkins leads the SF Symphony in a program full of the rhythms, blues, and swagger of jazz. Leonard Bernstein’s Three Dances from On the Town and Duke Ellington’s Harlem paint the sights and sounds of New York City. Grammy award-winning saxophonist Branford Marsalis joins for Erwin Schulhoff’s Hot-Sonate—a 1930 work banned by the Nazis and then long forgotten—followed by John Williams’ effortlessly cool Escapades from the 2002 film Catch Me If You Can.
