Mahler: Symphony No. 8 (180g Vinyl 2LP)
SKU: 016079
 
Individual Mahler symphonies are now available on vinyl for the first time, and exclusively through the San Francisco Symphony Online Store.
 
"The discs, originally recorded in DSD and released on hybrid-stereo and (tasteful, even convincing) multichannel SACDs, were generally excellent sounding, with a rich tonality, wide and deep soundstaging,
 
 
and terrific dynamic scaling and extended range. Not only have these qualities translated beautifully to vinyl, they actually, perhaps even surprisingly, sound better than ever."
-Wayne Garcia, The Absolute Sound
 
- Quantities are extremely limited
- 180g vinyl LPs, housed in gatefold jackets
- All albums are unshrinkwrapped, as they have never been sold individually
- Originally recorded to DSD, remastered at 96k/24bit
 
Recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall during the concerts on September 29 - October 3, 2004, Mahler's last completed symphony covers territory from the amiable Austrian pastoral to the fury of its "Burleske" to the uninhibited baring, in the finale, of the unprotected heart.
 
Michael Tilson Thomas has distinguished himself as one of the world's foremost Mahler interpreters, and through his signature performances, as one of the composer's most compelling advocates. In 1974, at the age of 29, he made his SFS debut conducting Mahler's Symphony No. 9.
 
Track list:
LP 1 Total Length: 47:08
Side 1: Movement 1 — Andante comodo

Adams: Harmonielehre & Short Ride in a Fast Machine (Signed CD)
Special Offer - CD Signed by Composer John Adams! - Limited Quantities

2013 Grammy® Award Winner for Best Orchestral Performance!
2013 ECHO Klassik Award Winner for Orchestra of the Year!

SKU: 9924

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony present a Hybrid SACD of John Adams' San Francisco Symphony commissioned Harmonielehre and the Michael Tilson Thomas commissioned Short Ride in a Fast Machine.

The SFS commissioned, premiered, and recorded Harmonielehre in March 1985 under Edo De Waart during Adams’ tenure as SFS composer in residence. Adams recalled, “I was a young composer when I wrote Harmonielehre and I had really only written two other orchestra pieces at that point and one of them was Harmonium, which was premiered by the San Francisco Symphony only a few years before that. Harmonielehre was tough coming out… I was searching for what I wanted to say. I knew that part of what I wanted to write for the orchestra was a music that would kind of strum the strings of its repertoire that would play to its strengths… [with Harmonielehre] I really confronted who I was, who I am, John Adams as a composer - somebody who grew up listening to classical music, classical orchestral music, who played in orchestras when I was younger, who conducted, who loved that repertoire, but at the same time was somebody who also grew up listening to jazz and rock and who was very influenced by minimalism. So it’s this rather strange marriage of the driving pulse of American minimalism and the sensuous and emotional and expressive world of the great European masterpieces.”
