Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra

Stanford Live

The sensational Vivaldi virtuoso Alana Youssefian joins PBO for a romantic whirl with Mendelssohn's impassioned concerto, lushly cushioned by the rousing overture to Cherubini's first Parisian opera, and the expansive optimism of Schubert's last completed symphony, considered to be his finest piece for orchestra. Let PBO's gut strings pull your heartstrings into a warm, reflective embrace of historically-informed Romanticism.

This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin has to say about Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra :

The Bay Area’s prime early-music ensemble serves up a program of Romantic music that opens with Cherubini’s Overture to mophoon, showcases the esteemed American violinist Alana Youssefian in Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor and concludes with Schubert’s Symphony No. 9 in C major, “The Great.”
