Wonderful concert! I was planning as trip to SF and checked Goldstar. The music was a delightful assortment of composers, an extraordinary violinist, and even an instrument I'd never seen/heard before. A great way to spend an afternoon in the City.

The Mozart and Brittan pieces were bland and uninspiring, though well performed. The rest of the program was terrific. particularly the last work, by the Tango composer.
