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

I went to 4 performances this weekend, all different in genres, but can I get an amen from anyone who saw/heard this performance? I have to admit I am a classical singer and love Schubert and have worked on this song cycle. They did such an amazing job. My husband and I had tears in our eyes at the end and they got 4 standing ovations. This was true artistry of the highest form and I was engaged from the first note until the last. Lieder is feeling like a lost art from in this country. It is incredibly challenging for the pianist/singer to engage an audience for an evening of song. Each song is like a mini-opera, telling a full tale in a few moments and telling several in an evening. I applaud the SF symphony for bringing this here. It's hard to get an large audience for this type of work, but it shouldn't be and I hope lieder won't become a lost art.
