San Francisco Symphony

Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor
Bertrand Chamayou, piano

MUSSORGSKY Night on Bald Mountain
LISZT Totentanz, S. 126
BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14

Surrender to the musical macabre, and bask in the sumptuous strings, ominous winds, and foreboding brass of the San Francisco Symphony in a special Halloween season concert conducted by Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen. The imagery is haunting and the sounds are unforgettable in these three spooky masterpieces—pagan witches dance maniacally in Mussorgsky’s Night on Bald Mountain; piano soloist Bertrand Chamayou grapples with the foreboding Dies Irae in Liszt’s blistering Totentanz (Dance of Death); and the protagonist in Berlioz’ Symphonie fantastique witnesses his own funeral during a demonic and surreal nightmare. Join us in welcoming Salonen back to Berkeley in his first Cal Performances appearance leading the San Francisco Symphony, a musical chemistry the San Francisco Chronicle has already praised as “magnificently vibrant.”

This performance is made possible, in part, by Nadine Tang.
