“This pairing is a sure-fire winner — two of Beethoven’s most venerated works, performed by musicians of acute sensibility and enviable faculties of interpretation . . . The orchestra is electric in this performance.” — International Record Review

Following the completion of their award-winning Mahler recording project, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony worked to expand the orchestra’s discography with both core classical repertoire and works new to or rarely heard by audience. This album, recorded live in concert at Davies Symphony Hall, is the first of the post-Mahler recordings.
