Stucky, Adams & Sibelius

Presented by San Francisco Symphony

Esa-Pekka Salonen

Esa-Pekka Salonen, pianist Víkingur Ólafsson, and the SF Symphony present John Adams’ Must the Devil Have All the Good Tunes?, a rollicking work evoking Franz Liszt and the gritty sounds of American funk music in equal measure. Steven Stucky’s Radical Light, inspired by the grandeur of Jean Sibelius’ symphonies, opens the concert and Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 closes it with rich orchestral textures, bold brass proclamations, and a final movement inspired by serene scenes of Nordic swans.

City: San Francisco
Price Range:
$20 to $165
