Concert series with the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas
This summer Thomas Hampson makes his highly anticipated return to San Francisco, in concert with the San Francisco Symphony and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas. Thomas sings John Adams’ The Wound-Dresser, on a programme that also features Stravinsky’s Scènes de ballet, Variations (Aldous Huxley, In memoriam), and Petrushka. These not-to-be-missed performances take place June 16, 17, 18 & 19 at Davies Symphony Hall.
Enjoy a video selection from The Wound-Dresser, featuring Mr. Hampson’s 2010 performance with the New York Philharmonic in Cologne, Germany, and additional details about the piece highlighted in a video interview.
“Now stentorian, then dulcet, Hampson imbued Whitman’s imagery and the lyrical vocal writing with understated emotion. His voicing of “Come sweet death, come quickly” was chilling.” (South Florida Classical Review – 2015 Concert with Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony)
