Natalie Dessay is one of the world's most renowned sopranos, performing at the world's premier opera houses for more than two decades until her retirement from the operatic stage in 2013. A six time winner of the Victoires de la Musique, France's premier annual music awards, she also won a Laurence Olivier Award in 2008 for her work on the London stage. A brilliant and passionate singer, Dessay is known for her interpretations of German lieder and French songs, which she'll perform at Davies Symphony Hall accompanied by pianist Phillipe Cassard. The evening's program features music by Clara Schumann, Brahms and Poulenc, as well as Richard Strauss, Duparc, Fauré, and Debussy. Learn More

This was "Mozart Lite", which is totally appropriate for a summer concert. I loved the young conductor, James Gaffigan. He added an encore (Eine Klene Nachmusik), which is Mozart at his schmaltziest, then added his own touch by leaving the conductor's podium and going to sit behind the orchestra as they continued to play flawlessly. Totally enjoyable evening.

Jeremy Denk, piano</p> <p>The San Francisco Symphony and Maestro Gaffigan offer a transformative evening of Mozart. Jeremy Denk returns for the eloquent C Major Piano Concerto (whose rarefied Andante became widely popularized as the Theme from the film Elvira Madigan). Mozart's poetic Symphony No. 40 provides a perfect cadence to this exquisite program.</p> <p>Program:
Mozart - Overture to The Magic Flute
Mozart - Piano Concerto No. 21, Elvira Madigan
Mozart - Symphony No. 40
Mozart - Allegro from Eine kleine Nachtmusik</p>
