San Francisco Symphony


I seldom watch/listen to music on TV, but last evening I happened upon Itzhak Perlman playing the Brahms violin concerto, Michael Tilson Thomas conducting, and I was pulled in. The piece is really a workout, but at the same time, it’s embedded in Perlman’s muscle memory. And what pleasure to enjoy the extended closeups of his animated expressions and occasional glimpses of Tilson Thomas’s minimalist conducting.
