The celebrated 1742 Guarnerius del Gesu violin played by San Francisco Symphony concertmaster Alexander Barantschik is presumed to be the very instrument on which the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto was premiered in 1845. Don’t miss a genuinely unique opportunity to hear this most beloved of concertos performed on the instrument which likely introduced it to the world! The violin is generously on loan to the SFS from the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco.
