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

San Francisco Symphony Chorus
The San Francisco Symphony Chorus sings Bach’s Christmas Oratorio, a magnum opus that’s one of the most beautiful and celebratory pieces of his career. This great tableau for chorus and orchestra dramatizes Christ’s birth and adoration in a work that rivals Handel’s Messiah in musical majesty.
