Tonight at the Symphony:
Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal: Esa-Pekka Salonen and Leila Josefowicz
Experience a San Francisco Symphony concert in the making! Open Rehearsals offer audience members a unique perspective on the creative dynamic between orchestra and conductor. Each Open Rehearsal begins with 8:30am coffee and complimentary donuts followed by a half-hour informative talk at 9am.
Two ardent champions of contemporary composition, Maestro Salonen and violinist Leila Josefowicz have collaborated numerous times, and in fact, his Violin Concerto was composed for her. A four movement work that covers a wide range of emotions, the piece, with its brilliant surface and wonderful sound (The New York Times), presents a vivid complement to the ever-reverberant sounds of Wagner as witnessed in excerpts from his unforgettable Ring cycle.
Katharine Hanrahan Open Rehearsal is a working rehearsal. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductors discretion.
San Francisco Symphony
The San Francisco Symphony Presents American Orchestras
The Boston Symphony Orchestra has a long and storied history of presenting world premieres and of supporting contemporary composers. Elliott Carters Flute Concerto, a recent BSO commission, will feature principal flutist Elizabeth Rowe, who was soloist in the American premiere performance by the BSO earlier this year. Also soloing with the orchestra is Richard Goode, performing one of Mozarts best known piano concertos, No. 25 in C major, a work that later influenced Beethovens writings.
