The return of last season's mega-successful Beethoven & Bates embraces both the classic and cutting-edge, with a finale featuring acclaimed Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes on Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 1. The evening kicks off with Michael Tilson Thomas, the San Francisco Symphony and Rossini's Overture to La gazza ladra, with its snappy snare drums, followed by Bates, a Guggenheim Fellow and multiple composition prizewinner, joining the orchestra as they perform his Alternative Energy. Come early and learn more at an informative pre-concert discussion. Learn More

Project San Francisco is an annual residency of acclaimed artists and composers featuring performance, educational, and community events. As part of the Symphony’s Centennial Initiatives, Project San Francisco provides concertgoers the opportunity to explore an artist’s vision, and hear in-depth collaborations with the Symphony.
Only 23 years of age, pianist Yuja Wang is coming off a hugely successful year, signing an exclusive contract with Deutsche Grammophon (her first DG album was Grammy®-nominated), and making striking artistic statements in orchestral debuts around the world. One of her signature performances came with the YouTube Symphony Orchestra, at MTT’s invitation. Her residency includes a performance of Bartók’s monumentally challenging Piano Concerto No. 2, a solo recital as part of the Great Performers Series, and a chamber music concert with SFS musicians.
