Copland’s Appalachian Spring 

Copland’s joyous Appalachian Spring has become one of the most beloved pieces in the American repertoire, earned Copland a Pulitzer Prize, and was recorded by the San Francisco Symphony in 1999 to much acclaim.  Beethoven admired Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 20 for its elegance, beauty, and tenderness.  One of music’s foremost Mozart interpreters, Christian Zacharias—performing with the San Francisco Symphony for the first time in over three decades—conducts Mozart’s masterwork from the keyboard and Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 from the podium in this week’s concerts.
