Captivated by the sounds of flamenco, composers from around the world have written music in the Spanish style. Pablo Heras-Casado returns to the San Francisco Symphony to conduct “Spanish” works by Frenchmen, including Ravel’s sultry slow-burn Boléro and Debussy’s Andalusian postcard Ibéria. Hear that music as well as the “fearless and arresting brilliance” (Gramophone) of Spanish piano virtuoso Javier Perianes performing Bartók’s melodious Piano Concerto No. 3.

Take a peek behind the scenes and experience an SF Symphony performance in the making. It begins at 8:30am with coffee, donuts, and a half-hour informative talk at 9am. Then, watch as the conductor and musicians collaborate to bring the music to life.

Open Rehearsals are working rehearsals. The pieces rehearsed are at the conductor’s discretion.
