Twenty-five-year-old conductor Klaus Mäkelä leads the SF Symphony in Jimmy López’ <em>Perú</em><em> Negro</em>, a fantasy on Afro-Peruvian folksongs, while violinist Vilde Frang performs Alban Berg’s Violin Concerto, a work rife with the emotion of a composer grappling with the fragility of life. The program closes with Dmitri Shostakovich’s tragic Tenth Symphony, widely seen as a depiction of the composer’s terrifying life in Stalinist Russia
