Event Description

Pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet joins Esa-Pekka Salonen and the SF Symphony in a program of myths and mysticism. Experience the explosive drama of Franz Liszt’s vivid symphonic poem Prometheus, along with the composer’s exquisitely romantic Piano Concerto No. 2. Fang Man’s Song of the Flaming Phoenix, heard here in its world premiere, blends myths of different traditions in a showcase for sheng virtuoso Wu Wei. The program concludes with Alexander Scriabin’s bewitching The Poem of Ecstasy.

Fang Man’s Song of the Flaming Phoenix is commissioned by the League of American Orchestras with the generous support of the Virginia B. Toulmin Foundation—world premiere by the San Francisco Symphony.
