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.

Tchaikovsky: _Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture _
Tchaikovsky: Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra
Tchaikovsky: Symphony No. 4
Intensity. Passion. Beauty. Drama. Listeners will be treated to all these and more in this showcase of Tchaikovsky’s music. Opening the program is the heart-wrenching Romeo and Juliet Fantasy-Overture, which is surely the very sound of longing. The elegant Variations on a Rococo Theme for Cello and Orchestra reveals a more reserved Tchaikovsky, while the Fourth Symphony is Tchaikovsky at his most forceful, where his internal torment finally surges into his music.
