SFCMP’s season-opener concert will juxtapose three looks at musical color, three sonic landscapes, and three provocative composers. The concert will feature the west coast premiere of a new work by Philippe Leroux, as well as a world premiere by California composer Nicole Mitchell, whose work celebrates African-American culture while reaching across genres, and “Schnee” by Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen, a work esteemed as one of the first classics of 21st-century music.
