Premiere Of Unsuk Chin’s ‘Alaraph’

May 16, 2024

South Korean composer Unsuk Chin was co-commissioned to write Alaraph ‘Ritus des Herzschlags’ for the San Francisco Symphony, which will give its U.S. premiere on May 16-18. Chin has described the work as having two main inspirations: pulsating binary stars and the traditions of Korean courtly and folk music. Ryan Bancroft conducts this program, which includes Henri Vieuxtemps’s Violin Concerto No. 5 (with Joshua Bell), Jennifer Higdon’s Air, and Debussy’s La mer.
