Mahler: Symphony No. 8 and the Adagio from Symphony No. 10 (Hybrid SACD)

Winner of three Grammys®! Best Classical Album, Best Choral Performance, and Best Engineered Classical Album

"...this promises to be a triumphant capstone to the entire cycle." -San Francisco Chronicle

Mahler's immense creation-featuring hundreds of musicians, three choruses, and soloists-is a symphony so epic in scope that it has been dubbed the "Symphony of A Thousand." Mahler's Eighth—a tale of damnation and salvation—is quintessentially a romantic work, but it owes a great debt to the towering Baroque choral works of J.S. Bach.

Mahler: Symphony No. 9 (Hybrid SACD)
SKU: 5073
Recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall during the concerts on September 28 - October 4, 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. Now celebrating his tenth season as Music Director, he and the SFS have formed an orchestral partnership acclaimed for innovation, artistic excellence, and a revitalization of the classical musical experience.
