About This Performance

See all Susanna Mälkki concerts

Premiered by the remarkable partnership of Mälkki and Josefowicz, Francesconi’s hallucinogenic concerto is both modern and sonically beautiful, a perfect program partner for Berlioz’ drug-induced dream/nightmare from 185 years earlier.

Programs, artists, dates, times, prices and availability subject to change.


Come early on Friday nights and enjoy complimentary wine, generously donated by San Antonio Winery, and a spectacular twilight view of the DTLA skyline from the Garden. Then head over to the Upbeat Live pre-concert lecture in BP Hall.
