The best and most convenient place to eat before the concert is at Jardiniere. Also, you can stop for a drink afterwards.

More Information



Alexander Barantschik, violinist and leader San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads my classic Vivaldi, offering a unique opportunity to hear the distinguished violinist put his singular stamp on Vivaldi’s The Four Seasons. The Symphony complements the firecracker virtuosity of this ubiquitous Baroque classic with the timeless elegance of Mozart and Tchaikovsky. Program:

Vivaldi – The Four Seasons

Mozart – Divertimento

Tchaikovsky – Serenade for Strings
