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.

If Vivaldi’s Four Seasons is crystalline grace and sparkling sophistication, Piazzolla’s version is streetwise verve and tangy in color. Each of Vivaldi’s four concertos for violin and chamber orchestra — performed here by the dynamic Lara St. John — recalls the character of its appointed season through evocative composition, and is one of the best loved of all Baroque works. In contrast, Tango master Astor Piazzolla’s pieces were never meant to be performed together. Yet as a group, and performed interleaved with Vivaldi’s four movements, listeners are treated to a captivating expression of the cycles of life.
