Esa-Pekka Salonen wrote FOG for the 90th birthday of his friend Frank Gehry in 2019 and is a reminder of the time when they worked together – Salonen composing Wing on Wing for the official opening of the Walt Disney Concert Hall designed by Gehry. Nocturno, sung by Tuomas Katajala, is the last song cycle by Benjamin Britten and a tribute to the canon of great English poets beginning with Shakespeare.
