Another SF Symphony conductor try-out? David Robert takes the podium

The San Francisco Symphony has welcomed a parade of guest conductors this season, some of whom may or may not become candidates for the post of music director when Michael Tilson Thomas departs the organization in 2020, at the end of his 25th season.
This week, the excellent conductor David Robertson , currently in his valedictory season as music director of the St. Louis Symphony, returns to Davies Hall to lead Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1, with pianist Kirill Gerstein as soloist; Haydn’s late-life Symphony No. 102, and Brett Dean’s “Engelsflügel” (Wings of Angels), complete the program.
Details:  8 p.m. May 25-26; Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco; $39-$99; 415-864-6000, www.sfsymphony.org .
