Zuill Bailey returns to the SFSO stage to perform the famed and intimate Cello Concerto of Elgar. Brahm’s Second seemed to bloom as spontaneously as a spring blossom in a forest glade. Its genial, outgoing character sets it apart from Brahms’s three other symphonies; this is the one understandably regarded as his “pastoral” symphony, and it is surely the most directly endearing of the four. The Rosamunde Overture is one of Schubert’s finest instrumental works and opens this season’s final Master Concerts.
