SCRIABIN’S PROMETHEUS & BARTÓK’S BLUEBEARD

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Alexander Scriabin's symphonic poem Prometheus, The Poem of Fire celebrates synesthesia and cosmic unity. Devised by San Francisco Symphony Music Director Esa-Pekka Salonen, pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet, and Cartier in-house perfumer Mathilde Laurent, the San Francisco Symphony and Cartier present a multisensory production of Prometheus. This collaborative world premiere combines dynamic musical and light performance with olfactory curation, subsuming audiences in Scriabin's creative vision more than a century after the piece of total art was composed.

Learn more about the Symphony's collaboration with Cartier.

Prometheus is paired with Béla Bartók's bloodthirsty fairy tale Duke Bluebeard's Castle, in which the composer reimagines Bluebeard as a tragic, yet appealing loner. Bartók's music is pure Hungarian: all tangy modal harmonies and skipping, stomping, folk-flavored rhythms.
