Ring in the New Year with masterpieces by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Local gem Robert Schwartz performs a D minor piano concerto thought to be one of the most beautiful concerti in the repertoire. San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow bass Brad Walker teams up with the SFCO’s own principal double bassist Michel Taddei for a concert aria—a delightful romp through the lower registers. An early essay in “Sturm und Drang,” the delightful “Prague” Symphony opens this festival of classical treasures.
