Review from Fritz Mb

The performances were First Class. The seats were at the edge, but could see most of the stage.

Review from Goldstar Member

A wonderful evening of great music played beautifully. Maestro Masur is quite understated in his delivery, but the result is beautifully musical. I had difficulty hearing the dialog, it went by a little too quickly for me.

Awesome music. One of the best symphonies I've been to (and I am a frequent symphony patron). Beautiful music.

Description

The San Francisco Symphony performs an all-Mendelssohn program led by Kurt Masur, one of history’s foremost Mendelssohn interpreters. The program pairs the picturesque Italian Symphony with Mendelssohn’s puckish incidental music to Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, a hallmark of both the composer’s oeuvre and the Romantic period.

Artists:

Kurt Masur, conductor

Susannah Biller, soprano

Maya Lahyani, mezzo-soprano

Itay Tiran, narrator

San Francisco Girls Chorus, Susan McMane, director
