Sounds of the Times: Turbulence Presented by New World Symphony

Explore the leading edge of today’s music alongside conductor and composer Matthias Pintscher, who follows in Pierre Boulez’ footsteps as Music Director of Paris’ Ensemble intercontemporain and creator of intricate sound worlds. Pintscher leads his own Violin Concerto—an atmospheric wonder—with fearless French violinist Renaud Capuçon. Olga Neuwirth’s ingenious work has been hailed a brash and brilliant showpiece that “transfers Mahler to the 21st century” (General-Anzeiger). Celebrating the San Francisco Symphony’s 60th Anniversary, György Ligeti’s Polyphony is as vibrant and unique as the city it represents.
