These star Jon Nakamatsu (Van Cliburn gold medalist) on piano, and this season's debut artist, 17-year old double bassist Jared Pabilona in:
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Overture to The Marriage of Figaro
Giovanni Bottesini: Double Bass Concerto No. 2 in B minor
Camille Saint-Saëns: Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor
According to the SFCO, "Mozart, Bottesini and Saint-Saëns were great virtuosi, writing themselves solo works to promote their double careers as composers and performing artists. Bottesini was considered the Paganini of the double bass, bringing that unwieldy instrument a measure of respect."
