On the Precipice: 
Music of the Weimar Republic

In June 2021, Esa-Pekka Salonen and the San Francisco Symphony present On the Precipice: Music of the Weimar Republic, a journey through one of history’s most inventive and decadent cultural periods.

With performances exploring the satiric and degenerate, peculiar and cynical, duty and demise, experience why this eclectic festival of music, cabaret, film, and discussions about art at the dawn of fascist Germany so clearly speaks to us now.   

Jun 17-20 Salonen: Make Art, Not War
Jun 24-26
Salonen: Weimar Nightfall

Myths & Mortals: 
A Festival of Greek Mythology

Modern civilization is laden with legends and lore, none with more timeless potency than the ancient libraries of Greek mythology. These extraordinary stories are a source of wisdom, philosophy, and morality; they are humanized by scorching drama, deep tenderness, and poetic beauty. 

In March 2021, Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the San Francisco Symphony in a wide-ranging, three-week immersion into music inspired by Greek mythology. This is music of the myths that make us, music of the then and now.
