The return of last season's mega-successful Beethoven & Bates embraces both the classic and cutting-edge, with a finale featuring acclaimed Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes on Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1. The evening kicks off with Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony and Rossini's Overture to La gazza ladra, with its snappy snare drums, followed by Bates, a Guggenheim Fellow and multiple composition prizewinner, joining the orchestra as they perform his Alternative Energy.

Few pieces can deliver a fresh perspective each time they are heard. Handel’s Messiah is one of those works that yields a new secret on every hearing. Composed in 1741, it reportedly was a favorite work of Beethoven for its “sublimity of language.” For modern listeners, it holds a place of reverence in the canon for its universal appeal and moments of timeless expression.
