Salonen Conducts Ravel & Stravinsky


Esa-Pekka Salonen takes listeners on a voyage through astonishing terrains, from Ravel’s exquisite setting of Perrault’s fairy tales to Stravinsky’s 1940s “war symphony,” with its allusions to marching soldiers and tanks. Completing the program, Finnish violinist Pekka Kuusisto introduces a 2021 concerto by Bryce Dessner partly inspired by Anne Carson’s essay The Anthropology of Water. It is a re-imagining of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, “an endeavor as old as civilization to set out on a road that is supposed to take you to the very end of things.” (Carson, The Anthropology of Water)

Tickets start at $35.
