About Classic Podger
Star violinist Rachel Podger makes her long-awaited return to the Bay Area as she extends beyond the baroque with PBO for the first time! In a program of Haydn and Mozart, Rachel takes audiences on a voyage through the stormy seas of Sturm und Drang. In between the tempestuous Symphony No. 39 of Haydn and the little G minor symphony by Mozart, the prodigy of Salzburg, Podger displays her virtuosity in dazzling violin concertos by each composer, wielding her violin throughout as Mozart or Haydn himself would have in the very first performances.
