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.
James Gaffigan, conductor
Jeremy Denk, piano
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.
Mozart – Overture to The Magic Flute

Mozart – Allegro from Eine kleine Nachtmusik
