SAN FRANCISCO, CA—The programming for the second half of the San Francisco Symphony’s March 3–5 concerts with Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen, sheng player Wu Wei, and pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet has changed. Franz Liszt’s Piano Concerto No. 2, performed with soloist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Alexander Scriabin’s The Poem of Ecstasy replace two works originally scheduled on the program—music from Jean-Philippe Rameau’s Castor and Pollux and Scriabin’s Prometheus, The Poem of Fire.

The first half of the program—Liszt’s Prometheus and the world premiere of Fang Man’s Song of the Flaming Phoenix (火凤凰的笙音) for Sheng and Orchestra (a SF Symphony co-commission), featuring Wu Wei—remains unchanged.
