HEARING THE FUTURE January 2019 Festival

Sometimes a composer, early in his or her career, catches a glimpse of some musical development to come. Often it happens before the composer has all the tools to fully realize this vision: for example, Berlioz’s formal and sonic experiments appeared before he had a harmonic palette to match them; and Beethoven’s First Symphony contains tantalizing glimmers of the radical developments to come in his later symphonies. — MATTHEW AUCOIN, FESTIVAL CURATOR

For the month of January we explore the concept of “creation” and the artistic expression that springs from youthful composers and artists.

and the world stage reflects his youthful perspective with fervor and an infectious enthusiasm as to what is possible.

The first brush stroke on a canvas. The first note on a staff. The first sentence of a novel. The opening scene of a drama.

Michael Francis, Music Director of Mainly Mozart, takes us back to a single year nearly 200 years ago when three young composers stood at the beginning of their creative genius and compared notes. They learned the rules, then dared to break them.

Our exploration begins with the first concerts conducted by Rafael Payare, San Diego Symphony’s Music Director Designate. In two programs in the span of one week, Payare will provide a glimpse of his creative vision as our 13th Music Director.

Partnering with San Diego arts, film, educational and literary organizations, this festival of springtime hope and fearlessness will include programs throughout the region to explore the concept of youthful creative inspiration and the spark that connects us all through art.

Festival curator Matthew Aucoin is, at the age of 28, a passionate futurist. His outlook on music, theater, poetry

Join us as we examine where creative genius begins and how its ultimate expression profoundly changes lives.

Where does creativity begin and where does it go?

Stay tuned for the complete “Hearing the Future” festival line-up which will be available on our website at: sandiegosymphony.org/festival

Our film season opens with the final Silent Era Masterpiece from comedian extraordinaire, Buster Keaton. Buster plays a college graduate trying to gain the respect of his father, a roughneck riverboat captain, as well as the love of Kitty, pretty daughter of his father’s business rival. This film contains one of cinema’s most famous (and dangerous) stunts as Buster narrowly avoids being crushed by a tumbling house facade. FREE for Fox Theatre Film Series Subscribers!

Winner of the first (and, sadly, last) Academy Award for Unique and Artistic Production, F.W. Murnau’s Sunrise: A Song of Two Humans is one of the most critically acclaimed and influential films of the Silent Era, with modern movies as diverse as The Last Jedi and La La Land paying direct homage. A highly symbolic story of one eventful and terrifying night in the lives of an American everyman and his wife, Sunrise contains bold gestures of Murnau’s famous German Expressionist style married to the vivid cinematographic innovations of 1927 Hollywood.

A Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra

Children will put on their scientist’s goggles to take a closer look at the DNA of music and how music moves us. Goggles not included, but imagination is required for this performance.

Where does a bassoon come from? Is a French horn really French? In this introduction to the orchestra, we’ll explore how instruments have been created over time to tell a story and how technology has shaped how we create sound. We’ll use both our imagination and problem-solving skills as we dive into the basics of an orchestra.
