Artistic director and principal conductor of the famed Royal Philharmonic, guest maestro Charles Dutoit wields the baton for another of the world's most acclaimed orchestras, the San Francisco Symphony. He'll lead a performance featuring pianist Kirill Gerstein on the graceful Piano Concerto No. 2 by Beethoven, which the composer is said to have devised early in his career to show off his own skill at the keyboard. Contrasting and closing out the concert is Dmitri Shostakovich's Symphony No. 10. It's often considered the composer's greatest work -- and one of the 20th century's most powerful symphonies, with influences ranging from Gustav Mahler to Russian poet Alexander Pushkin and Cossack folk dances.

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!!

San Francisco Symphony
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.
