depending on events around civic center, traffic and parking can be really difficult, so give yourself plenty of time to find parking and bring some cash, because if there is only limited parking all garages will accept cash only!

Osmo Vänskä conductor

Alexander Barantschik violin

San Francisco Symphony


Thomas Larcher: Red and Green (San Francisco Symphony Commission-World Premiere)

Mendelssohn: Violin Concerto

Vaughan Williams: Symphony No. 2,_ A London Symphony _

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.
