Esa-Pekka Salonen has said “ritual is at the very heart of Stravinsky’s craft.” With the austere and incantatory <em>Oedipus Rex</em>, Stravinsky brings to life a classic Greek myth of power, deception, and heartbreak in a voice that is only his. <em>The Symphony of Psalms</em> turns to an altogether different ritual, cloaking three familiar religious texts in a mantle of drama and timelessness. Salonen and the Orchestra are joined by a cast of stellar vocalists, the SF Symphony Chorus, and legendary director Peter Sellars for this staged event.
