San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads the orchestra in an irresistible program featuring works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Britten and Piazzolla. Following a lovely early Mozart Divertimento, Barantschik takes center stage in Mendelssohn's D minor Violin Concerto, one of the Romantic master's finest creations and a delightful surprise for concertgoers who only know its more famous sibling. Britten's gorgeous Simple Symphony salutes the composer's centenary, and the program concludes with the sultry music of another 20th-century master: Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, the "King of Nuevo Tango." Inside Music, an informative talk with Laura Stanfield Prichard, begins one hour prior to the concert. Learn More
The weather was Even if the daytime weather is warm, wear long sleeves, long pants and laced up shoes with socks, especially if you have to climb to your seats. We bring portable seats for benches or you can rent seat pads. Also it is great to have a blanket. A cool marine layer falls as it gets dark.. I wore a sweater, flip-flops, etc..dress • Jul 31 2013 star this tip starred

This evening was one of the most enjoyable I have spent at the Hollywood Bowl in a long time. Everything from the music to the ambiance, food and even travel was a delight!. The evening itself was lovely; a clear, cool summer night under the stars! The music was divine conducted by the skillful Canadian conductor, Bernard Labadie. All of the pieces were both beautifully conducted and played. The Labeque sisters' playing of Mendelssohn's concerto for "two pianos" and their encore were the highlights of the evening, with the orchestra's melodic Schubert Symphony No. 5 coming in a close second. Sitting under the stars, surrounded by such beautiful sounds, I found myself feeling so fortunate to be part of the evening's experience!
