- The amazing Kari Krikku in Magnus Lindberg's fantastic Clarinet Concerto, conducted by Joana Carneiro. (Could we not get a performance of this piece in the Bay Area? Please? I don't know if Krikku has a lifetime lock on performing it - he is splendid, as you can hear on record, and as I was lucky enough to hear last February in NYC - but we have a great principal clarinetist in the SFS.) Copland's Clarinet Concerto is also on the program - not with Krikku - as well as Appalachian Spring and Nielsen's Maskarade Overture.
- Yuja Wang in the Rach 3 with Tchaikowsky 5, Lionel Bringuier conducts
- Beethoven's 9th and the Choral Fantasy on the same program - whew! Raphael Fruhbeck de Burgos conducts.
- Olga Kern plays the Rach Rhapsody; Leonard Slatkin conducts a program that includes the Brahms 4th
- Philip Glass Ensemble in Powaqqatsi
- The Labeque sisters in the Poulenc concerto for two pianos, a charming and lovely piece
