Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony follow their recently completed Mahler cycle with a series of new live recordings, including an all-Beethoven disc featuring the Fourth Piano Concerto with Emanuel Ax, and Symphony No. 5.
Following the recent completion of their award-winning and ground-breaking Mahler recording project, Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony will continue to bolster their discography with recordings from both the core classical repertoire as well as works new to or rarely heard by audiences. The new recordings reflect the broad range of programming that has been a hallmark of the 15-year MTT/SFS partnership. The new releases, recorded live in concert in the orchestra’s home Davies Symphony Hall, will be available as Hybrid SACDs.
The first of these new releases includes an all Beethoven-recording featuring the composer’s Symphony No. 5 and Piano Concerto No. 4 with world-renowned pianist Emanuel Ax.
