THE SAN FRANCISCO SYMPHONY
The performance of classical music at the highest level of excellence demands a lifetime commitment. Every single musician, guest artist, and conductor has his or her own reason for choosing music above all else. Meet the artists who make the music.
One of the most influential and creative forces in music, Esa-Pekka Salonen has—through his many high-profile conducting roles, work as a leading composer, and advocacy for accessibility and diverse musical voices—shaped a unique vision for the present and future of the symphony orchestra. His restless innovation drives him constantly to reposition classical music in the now.
