Pulitzer winner’s new work for SF Symphony debuts March 15-17

There’s a brand-new piece on this week’s San Francisco Symphony program.

“Sudden Changes,” by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Charles Wuorinen, was commissioned by the Symphony and receives its world premiere in three performances under music director Michael Tilson Thomas. Wuorinen’s 21st-century American score is paired with a great 20th-century one – Aaron Copland’s Symphony No. 3, which features the theme from the composer’s “Fanfare for the Common Man.”

Also on the program: Prokofiev’s dazzling Piano Concerto No. 3, with the young Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov as soloist.

Details: 8 p.m. March 15-17, Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco; $35-$125; 415-864-6000; www.sfsymphony.com.
