Esa-Pekka Salonen Conductor Carey Bell Clarinet San Francisco Symphony Kínēma [First San Francisco Symphony Performances] Esa-Pekka Salonen Drowned in Light [San Francisco Symphony Commission and World Premiere] Jens Ibsen Symphony in Three Movements Igor Stravinsky In Kínēma Esa-Pekka Salonen’s lyrical imagination takes flight via five cinematic scenes for solo clarinet and chamber orchestra. Emerging Black Composers Project winner Jens Ibsen grew up in the Bay Area, where he soaked up samba, soul, R&B, and progressive metal along with the music of Ghana and the African diaspora—all influences you might detect in Drowned in Light, a world premiere. Igor Stravinsky’s turbulent Symphony in Three Movements, which he called his “war symphony,” reflects the rampant destruction in Europe and Asia. This concert is part of the California Festival: A Celebration of New Music
