Mahler: Symphony no 4 / Tilson Thomas, San Francisco SO

Album Summary

>Mahler, Gustav : Symphony no 4 in G major
Performers Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

"After a terrific First Symphony, Michael Tilson Thomas' ongoing Mahler cycle with his San Francisco players really hits its stride with this latest release, one of the truly great recordings ever lavished on the Fourth... The performance's sheer technical perfection, never mind the fact that it was edited from a series of live performances, attests to the exceptionally high standards prevailing in San Francisco at present, and the polish of the playing is complemented by abundant interpretive insight and an equally characterful response from the first chair players... This is by any standard an extraordinary achievement, and no one who loves Mahler or this symphony can afford to pass it by. Up next: Symphony No. 2. I can hardly wait!" -Classics Today (10/10)
