San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Alexander Barantschik leads the orchestra in an irresistible program featuring works by Mozart, Mendelssohn, Britten and Piazzolla. Following a lovely early Mozart Divertimento, Barantschik takes center stage in Mendelssohn's D minor Violin Concerto, one of the Romantic master's finest creations and a delightful surprise for concertgoers who only know its more famous sibling. Britten's gorgeous Simple Symphony salutes the composer's centenary, and the program concludes with the sultry music of another 20th-century master: Argentine composer Astor Piazzolla, the "King of Nuevo Tango." Inside Music, an informative talk with Laura Stanfield Prichard, begins one hour prior to the concert. Learn More

Here are three intimate pieces that deliver big delights! Hear the extraordinary string section of the San Francisco Symphony perform Mozart’s Eine kleine Nachtmusik, or A Little Night Music, thought by some to be his most popular work. Dvorák’s lovely serenade is brimming with emotion, and Tchaikovsky demonstrates his usual big orchestral exuberance, but in a compact package.
