Sheku Kanneh-Mason, Salonen, and Symphonie fantastique

May 01 - May 04

Sheku Kanneh-Mason, lauded as a “compelling musical storyteller” by The New York Times, joins the NY Phil in Shostakovich’s Cello Concerto No. 1, by turns energetic and elegiac. Esa-Pekka Salonen conducts Berlioz’s Romantic tale of a young artist’s heart and fantasies, complete with a harrowing, hallucinatory march to the scaffold and a chaotic witches’ sabbath.
