SF orchestra presented a very well balanced selection of the featured composers' works. Shifts from full orchestra to a few selected instruments were a delightful change of pacing. Short but representative but long enough to be pure entertainment.

It was a real treat to have a Baroque scholar conduct this performance. Watching her and the SFS was sheer poetry.

It was OK, we've attended better concerts. Music was a bit bland and the event dragged on a bit. Overall a OK.

I enjoyed seeing the San Francisco Symphony's performances of Handel's and Bach's works. I had not attended the symphony since I was a child, so this was grand fun for me. I loved Zellerbach Hall at UC Berkeley and Goldstar's seats were excellent.
