IGOR STRAVINSKY Suite No. 1 for Small Orchestra
AMY X NEUBURG Hunger Strike (2016) [SFCO Commission & World Premiere]
L. V. BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92

 
 
“Don’t miss the spectacular Amy X Neuburg. She’s the best thing to come out of Oakland since Jack London.” —John Adams, composer

Experience Amy X Neuburg’s “fabulous singing” and “exhilarating originality” in her newest work, Hunger Strike, commissioned by the SFCO for performance with Bay Area string quartet Squid Inc. Featuring vocals by the composer herself, Hunger Strike is paired with Stravinsky’s delightful Suite No. 1 for Small Orchestra, composed in 1925. Beethoven’s revolutionary Seventh Symphony was cutting edge in 1812, a brilliant experiment in sound and color that helped shape the future of classical music.
 
 

The San Francisco Chamber Orchestra would like to thank the following funders for their vital role in the world premiere of Hunger Strike:
