A brilliant and passionate singer, Dessay is known for her interpretations of German lieder and French songs, which she'll perform at Davies Symphony Hall accompanied by pianist Phillipe Cassard.

We enjoyed this performance. Our seats were not as good as the ones we previously have received as they were off to the side and we could not see about 1/3 of the orchestra. In the past, our second tier seats were in the center higher up. Still, the sound was excellent and we enjoyed the concert very much.

- "Mr. Anderszewski's improbably light playing had an air of confessional intimacy; listening felt like eavesdropping.” --<em>The</em> <em>New York Times</em>

<p>The award-winning Anderszewski has appeared with many great orchestras and debuts with the San Francisco Symphony in Mozart’s darkly beautiful concerto. Fauré and Debussy created musical Impressionism, and Higdon shows how Impressionism lives today.
