About the event

Esa-Pekka Salonen and the SF Symphony present a program where the friction between powerful viewpoints yields brilliant musical discoveries. Hannah Kendall’s Tuxedo: Vasco ‘de’ Gama takes inspiration from Jean-Michel Basquiat’s artwork Tuxedo while referencing the complicated legacy of Western exploration and colonialism. Then, Unsuk Chin’s Graffiti paints a musical picture that’s wild, refined, free, and mysterious. The program concludes with Ludwig van Beethoven’s triumphant Seventh Symphony whose emotional center is the second movement, the heartrending Allegretto.
