One of the pleasures of a Mondavi Center season is the return of the San Francisco Symphony. This program is a stirring reminder of this premier orchestra’s range. Copland’s joyous Appalachian Spring, for which the composer won a Pulitzer Prize, is one of the most beloved pieces in the American repertoire. Foremost Mozart interpreter Christian Zacharias conducts the Piano Concerto No. 20 from the keyboard and Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 from the podium in this concert, which also includes the slender, lovely Morton Feldman elegy for his piano teacher, Madame Press Died Last Week at Ninety.
|Mozart||Piano Concerto No. 20 in D Minor K. 466|
|Feldman||Madame Press Died Last Week at Ninety|
|Haydn||Symphony No 93 in D Major|
