Britten: The Prince of the Pagodas

Sunday, Jun 15 2:00p
Davies Symphony Hall San Francisco, CA

The season culminates with a three-week survey of the artistic life of Britten. Beloved SFS guest Gil Shaham offers Prokofiev’s Violin Concerto No. 2, an evocative preface to Britten’s Prince of the Pagodas, which was written as a special commission after Britten visited and studied music in Bali. The rich textures of the gamelan orchestra are imbued throughout the piece, lending an exotic whimsy to the evening’s concert.
