Music for a Modern Age



Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony perform a thrilling musical program framed by dynamic dancers and illuminating imagery in a one of a kind multisensory experience. Featuring the movers and shakers of the American contemporary classical music scene, this concert event is a must see spectacle. Hear Antheil’s A Jazz Symphony, an audacious work inspired by the spirit of jazz, Latin American music and French modernism, and be the first to witness the West Coast Premiere of MTT’s own song cycle of Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind. Behold the revolutionary originality of Charles Ives’ From the Steeples and the Mountains, a masterwork in experimental acoustics that’s both wildly powerful and poetically precise, along with fellow non-conformist Lou Harrison, who caused a stir when he fused classical orchestral sound with the exotic rhythms of the South Pacific.
