good value for money. we paid premier seats, and the rows in front of us were open (not overly crowded due to program, non-famous soloist, and new conductor), so we were able to move to better seats. the concert was comprised of three pieces. the first, kodaly--an eastern european themed piece, was exciting and the conductor seemed to really evoke from the symphony his moods. the next piece was a block cello soloist piece--it was also eastern european. it was based on meditations of king solomon--a bit less exciting--maybe for cello fans. the final piece was done competently and made the night worth going out for. overall, i can't say it was the most exhilarating classical concert i've been to--but it was good to see the new opera conductor. my friend who had never been to a concert before enjoyed it thoroughly--and i found it a good use of my evening--esp for the price.
The San Francisco Opera’s future music director explores works with deep ethnic roots. He visits Kodály’s Hungary and joins Principal Cellist Grebanier in music of Old Testament grandeur.
