Prokofiev said of his Symphony No. 5: “I cannot say that I deliberately chose this theme. It was born in me and clamored for expression.” Guest conductor and pianist Teddy Abrams leads the Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra in Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5 and plays and conducts Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G major. The concert opens with Michael Tilson Thomas’s AGNEGRAM, a piece built from notes that spell out the name of a devoted San Francisco Symphony benefactor.
