Now celebrating their 20th season together, Maestro MTT and the SFS welcome sparkling young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor, who's all of 21, to perform Ravel's fizzy Piano Concerto in G major. But the concert opens and closes with a pair of romantic Romeo and Juliet pieces, the first from Tchaikovsky and the finale from Prokofiev. Tchaikovsky's famed love theme's been featured in lots of TV shows and movies, ranging from A Christmas Story to Clueless and Sesame Street to SpongeBob Squarepants, while Tilson Thomas and the SF Symphony's recording of the Prokofiev piece won the 1996 Grammy for Best Orchestral Performance.

This event is good if youi have kids. They spend a good amount of time explaining the music you are about to hear, and, this day, Bernsteins daughter was there priving wonderful anecdotes and insight into her father's musical style.
It was great.
Running time was also kid-freindly. I brought my 5 and 7 year old and they were fixed to their seat most the perfromance, and we were in teh 2nd Tier.
Tickets were good for the price, but I did wish we had been clioser - but again, it was a good deal so no complaints.
If you want to hear a lot of music and let it take you away, do not attend this as, again, there is a good amount of talking and explaining.
Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony welcome a special guest: Jamie Bernstein. Jamie Bernstein is daughter of the legendary Leonard Bernstein, who was a world-famous musician, conductor, composer, author, and television celebrity, beloved around the world. MTT and Jamie Bernstein will be your personal guides as they affectionately and joyfully lead you on a journey through The Bernstein Beat, a concert filled with music they both love.
