THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY PRESENTS GREAT PERFORMERS
Gidon Kremer leads the formidable Kremerata Baltica in this gripping program. As part of the celebration of the Britten centenary, Kremerata offers Britten’s arresting Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge; the program concludes with music by Britten’s contemporary, Shostakovich. Kremer describes the controversial Antiformalist Gallery as “very amusing and entertaining . . .a real happy ending for this program.”
