This spooky program, led by Esa-Pekka Salonen, begins with HK Gruber’s Frankenstein!!, a raucous and humorous work for orchestra and vocalist that merges genres from jazz to Viennese cabaret. Then, Bernard Herrmann’s legendary Suite from Psycho plunges into the darkest corners of the human psyche, mirroring the film’s infamous twists and turns. With pounding intensity and bleak foreboding, Béla Bartók’s The Miraculous Mandarin caps off the evening with a tale of fraud, seduction, and murder.
