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.

Ukrainian conductor Kirill Karabits makes his San Francisco Symphony debut with an enthralling program of three deeply impassioned works. The evening begins with the rending Elegie for string orchestra by modern master (and Karabits’s countryman) Valentin Silvestrov. Renowned French dynamo Hélène Grimaud offers her signature interpretation of Schumann’s fiery Piano Concerto, a vital essay of the Romantic literature. Rachmaninoff’s irresistible Symphonic Dances, the composer’s final work, closes the program.
Inside Music, an informative talk with John Palmer, begins one hour prior to both concerts and is free to ticketholders. Off the Podium, an informal Q&A with Hélène Grimaud and Kirill Karabits, begins immediately after Saturday’s performance.
