Had a great time, it was a fun and light evening with some hilarity at the end during the encore. It was well worth the money (and the tickets were cheap too!).

Great price and good seats for a very pleasant evening.The orchestra and featured pianist were on the casual side that evening. The conductor felt relaxed enough to have some humourous fun during the encore piece.

Exceptional concert. Although my seats were at the Second Tier, the acoustics is fantastic. And of course the view is great from any seat in the hall.

James Gaffigan, conductor

Jeremy Denk, piano

The San Francisco Symphony and Maestro Gaffigan offer a transformative evening of Mozart. Jeremy Denk returns for the eloquent C Major Piano Concerto (whose rarefied Andante became widely popularized as the Theme from the film Elvira Madigan). Mozart’s poetic Symphony No. 40 provides a perfect cadence to this exquisite program.


Mozart – Overture to The Magic Flute

Mozart – Piano Concerto No. 21, Elvira Madigan

Mozart – Symphony No. 40

Mozart – Allegro from Eine kleine Nachtmusik
