Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor
Esa-Pekka Salonen leads the Philharmonia Orchestra, London in celebrating immigrants old and new. From collaborators Jimmy Lopez and Nilo Cruz comes Dreamers, featuring soprano Ana Mariá Martinez. Co-commissioned with Cal Performances, the piece explores the experience of undocumented individuals brought to this country as children—and what it means for cities to provide sanctuary. From the Russian-born Igor Stravinsky comes The Firebird, created in 1910 for the Ballets Russes.
