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

Once I eliminate the awful seating I was given and the storm trooper like usher in my section, the rest of the evening was wonderful. Jeremy Denk was a wizard on the piano, watching his fingering from my position almost made up for the terrible seat I was in. MTT, as usual, put together a night of music that transformed. While he doesn't shoot for seamless segues, he managed once again to make very varied pieces blend into a playbook that made perfect sense. I always try to go when MTT is conducting, despite the worst seats in the house they give to Goldstar attendees.
