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. Come early and learn more at an informative pre-concert discussion. Learn More

The Richard Strauss pieces were wonderful!
I noted, however, that the third trombonist semed especially bored, having very few notes to play. He spent most of the time with both his arms and his legs crossed! Rather than intently following the conductor and being immersed in the music, he was just sitting idly by until his few bars came up. Not an especially participative mode of being present to clock in for his $100K+/year salary. What if the paying audience just sat around looking bored until, finally, the third trombonist got his few notes in? Don't these players get that their every move on stage is being scrutinized by the audience? And what about the guest conductor? Doesn't he care what kind of attentiveness to the music he is eliciting from everyone on stage?
