Celebrating the leap-year birthday of Gioachino Rossini. The most famous musician of his day, Rossini once boasted that he could “set a laundry list to music”. On this program they’ll perform a string sonata written at the age of 12, the stirring overture to one of his most popular operas, and a bon bon with noted Bay Area tenor Brian Thorsett.
The concert also features the much-anticipated return of mandolin virtuoso Avi Avital, performing Paisiello’s delightful Mandolin Concerto. Avital recently became the first mandolinist signed by the prestigious Deustche-Gramophon label.
Admission is free, but tickets are required for non-members. Reserve online, or call 415.692.5258 to make your reservation by phone.
