Description

In our On Stage series, which brings to the stage some of the most influential contemporary classical composers of the 20th and 21st centuries, SFCMP’s season-opener concert will juxtapose three looks at musical color, three sonic landscapes, and three provocative composers. Featuring the west coast premiere of a new work by Philippe Leroux, as well as a world premiere by California composer Nicole Mitchell, whose work celebrates African-American culture while reaching across genres, and Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, whose work Schnee is esteemed as one of the first classics of 21st-century music.

This concert will offer fluid interactions within a chamber ensemble and an electric (and eclectic) combination of instruments. This event will feature Nicole Mitchell in the “How Music Is Made” composer talk segment.
