Hear a sound clip from _Harmonielehre. _
These performances are part of Project San Francisco, an innovative composer and artist residency program.
Project San Francisco continues with another signature John Adams work: Harmonielehre, a work partly inspired by Adams’s dream in which a tanker ascends from the San Francisco Bay into the sky. This milestone of American minimalism provides the evening’s rousing culmination. The program begins with Synchrony by the great twentieth-century innovator and Bay Area native Henry Cowell. Violinist Gil Shaham, one of his generation’s most dynamic soloists, joins the Symphony for Mozart’s beguiling Violin Concerto No. 5.
Inside Music, an informative talk with Scott Foglesong, begins one hour prior to concerts. Free to ticketholders.
