Barantschik plays Concertos and Serenades

Three Orchestra members step into the spotlight in sparkling solo turns. The first time Ms. Payne performed the Piccolo concerto, she “stole the show,” said SFGate.com. Vivaldi’s style greatly influenced Bach, whose concertos are among the most mellifluous to emerge from the Baroque era. Wolfgang Amadeus loved a party and wrote charming serenades and divertimentos to be performed at those often stately occasions—including this Serenade from 1776.

The Thursday Matinee concerts are endowed by a gift in memory of Rhoda Goldman.
