Talented pianist and conductor. Pre-concert Reception was misleading. Music prior to the performance was pleasant but can't figure out where the "reception" was?? Cost $29 for a wrap and boxed salad plus water and coke. Eat beforehand!!

Mozart: Overture to Don Giovanni
Mozart: Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor
Mozart: Symphony No. 41, Jupiter
The music that streamed from Mozart’s mind is, in a single word, perfect. The overture from Don Giovanni encapsulates the masterful portrayal of mirth, melodrama, and the supernatural that is this operatic masterpiece. Elegant pianist Gilles Vonsattel makes his SFS debut in the Piano Concerto No. 20, with its moods both dark and happy. Finally, all the otherworldly ability that Mozart possessed was brought to bear in the Jupiter Symphony, the final symphony he produced.
