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

Beautiful performance, and interesting choice of pieces. The Schulhoff trio for flute/piccolo,viola and bass was unusual and pleasanty quirky, the Borodin quartet was familiar but enjoyable, and the highlight- the Beethoven Archduke trio- was just spectacular, best version I've ever heard. All the performers were wonderful. Some distraction at first, due to some late audience arrivals (and the usual cough- prone folks), but this was a minor annoyance.
Ludwig van Beethoven’s glorious Archduke Trio, a vital landmark of the piano trio literature and one of the composer’s crowning achievements, anchors this afternoon’s selection of chamber music masterworks. The program also features Erwin Schulhoff’s Concertino for Flute, Viola, and Double Bass, a delicious foray into the entrancing sound world of an uncommon trio of instruments; and Alexander Borodin’s tender love letter to his wife, the deeply felt Second String Quartet.
