Notes & Reviews:

Recordings by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony have garnered consistant praise from music critics: Prokofiev's "Romeo and Juliet" won a Grammy Award; Stravinsky's "Rite of Spring" won three Grammy Awards. This newest album offers Aaron Copland's warhorse ballet scores in a release celebrating the centenary of the composer's birth. These are dynamic and exciting performances, captured in excellent sound. Highly recommended.
