Best Bets: Nathalie Stutzmann Conducts Tchaikovsky's 'Pathetique' At Sf Symphony

First, there was Marin Alsop, who took to the podium at the Baltimore Symphony in 2007 and thereby became the first female to lead a major American orchestra. Now comes French-born Nathalie Stutzmann, who will become the second when she takes over as music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra this fall. But first, she will be making her San Francisco Symphony debut in a series of concerts this weekend, leading a program highlighted by Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 6, the famed "Pathetique." But the award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus will also be on hand, opening the evening with three choral works by Brahms based on classical mythology -- "Nanie," "Gesang der Parzen" and "Schicksalslied." We're guessing the esteemed conductor may be humming along under her breath for those songs, as, in addition to playing both the bassoon and the piano, she is also a gifted contralto, with some 80 recordings to her credit. You can catch her in action at an open rehearsal at Davies Hall at 10 a.m. Thursday; the full concerts take place at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday. Tickets, $30 and $40 for the rehearsal, $20-$165 for the evening concerts, are at (415) 864-6000 and https://www.sfsymphony.org/.

Nathalie Stutzmann conducts a historical guest role with Philadelphia Orchestra

Nathalie Stutzmann made her first appearance as principal guest conductor of the Philadelphia Orchestra, almost a year to the day after her appointment was announced. Although the French musician has conducted in Philly intermittently since 2016—to say nothing of her parallel career as a contralto, in which guise she first appeared with the Orchestra in 1997—the performance of works by Schubert and Missy Mazzoli marked the start of a new chapter in this association. It also signaled a greater changing of the classical music guard.

Review: What Nathalie Stutzmann brings to the party

From a review of this week’s Atlanta concerts by Mark Gresham:. …. What we got is a very different sensibility from what this orchestra (or American orchestras in general) is accustomed. But the ASO is an accomplished, flexible, and open-minded ensemble that is willing to experiment and learn new things. And what Sturzmann brings to the table seems musically insightful, fresh, and promising.
