Great Performances “San Francisco Symphony Reopening Night”

Premiering Friday, Nov. 19 at 8 p.m. 

Great Performances celebrates the opening night of San Francisco Symphony’s 110th season as it welcomes its Music Director, GRAMMY-winning conductor-composer Esa-Pekka Salonen, to the stage as conductor, marking their first opening night concert together since Salonen assumed the post of Music Director last season.

Scheduled to be recorded October 1, 2021, before a live audience, the coronavirus pandemic-delayed concert includes performances of John Adams’ “Slonimsky’s Earbox,” Alberto Ginastera’s “Estancia” Suite with dancers from San Francisco-based contemporary ballet company LINES Ballet performing original choreography by Alonzo King, and Silvestre Revueltas’ “Noche de Encantamiento” from his film score to “La Noche de los Mayas.”

The concert also features GRAMMY-winning bassist and vocalist esperanza spalding and a jazz trio of guest musicians performing GRAMMY-winning composer-saxophonist Wayne Shorter’s “Gaia” with the San Francisco Symphony.
