Event Description

Sergei Prokofiev’s vibrant Romeo and Juliet depicts the fierce war of the Montagues and Capulets, and, of course, the two star-crossed lovers. Maurice Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin is both a tribute to friends lost in combat during World War I and an ode to the sparkling French music of centuries past. Pierre-Laurent Aimard joins Esa-Pekka Salonen and the SF Symphony for Bela Bartók’s Second Piano Concerto, a zany piece filled with Eastern European folk dance, snippets of Baroque music, and lots of drums.
