This weekend (March 5,6,7) Thomas Adès with be conducting his own composition with the San Francisco Symphony. His piece “In Seven Days” is based on the seven days of creation outlined in the book of Genesis. It is a multimedia piece including video projection and he scored it using a contraforte!
Bay area people should all go and hear some contraforte in Davies hall!
This is the first time that contraforte has been used in the San Francisco Symphony and it will be performed by Steven Braunstein.
