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.

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.
