Coming to SFS?

When your music director is also a prominent composer, you keep an eye on his guest conducting engagements because he's been known to conduct his own music and works by other interesting, prominent composers. I've been scouring Esa-Pekka Salonen's conducting schedule, and I found him conducting, at other orchestras, various works that I'd love to hear in San Francisco. Here's a little list of what he'll be conducting in the near future or has conducted in the recent past that isn't known to be on SFS's schedule:
  • Salonen: Clarinet Concertino (World Premiere, Yle Commission)
  • Salonen: Fog (US premiere of orchestral version)
  • Muhly: Shrink (concerto for violin and strings); Pekka Kuusisto, violin, co-curator.
  • Bjarnarson: Piano Concerto (world premiere, LA Phil commission)
  • Salonen: Karawane
  • Shaw: Entr’acte
  • Salonen: Gemini
  • Hillborg: Peacock Tales. Millennium version for saxophone and orchestra
  • Salonen: Kinema, for clarinet. Spotted on NY Phil 2022-23 season.
  • Salonen: Organ Concerto, programmed in several countries during the 2022-23 season.
  • Dessner, Double Piano Concerto; performed at NSO, spotted on NY Phil and LA Phil schedules for 2023-24
  • Lara, concerto for double bass and flute, performed in the 2022-23 LA Phil season by esperanza spaulding and Claire Chase, both SFS collaborative partners
Predicted and performed at SFS:
  • Lindberg, Third Piano Concerto. SFS co-commission. Spotted on NY Phil 2022-23 season, with Yuja Wang as piano soloist. On the SFS schedule in October, 2022.
