Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony unleash the passion and triumph of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and Romeo and Juliet, Fantasy-Overture, in a live, 192/24 bit recording released as a Hybrid SACD.
Passion, love and triumph, as imagined by Tchaikovsky, are captured in sweeping glory by the award-winning, chart-topping team of Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony. Tchaikovsky’s heroic Fifth Symphony and the passionate Romeo and Juliet, Fantasy-Overture, which features one of the best-known love themes ever written – receive rapturous performances under a conductor whose Russian roots reveal the very esssence of the composer’s emotional output.

Tilson Thomas says, “It has been possible in my life to not only perform [Tchaikovsky’s Fifth] a lot, but to harken back to the sense of elegance that Piatigorsky, Heifetz and Rubinstein imparted to me about this kind of music.” Captured live in the orchestra’s home, Davies Symphony Hall, the audiophile release was recorded in 192/24 bit and is released as a Hybrid SACD.

Critical acclaim for Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony:

“Minutes of pure, shimmering magic.” – San Francisco Chronicle (on Masterpieces in Miniature)

“This is a recording that will blow your socks off.” – Daily Telegraph (5 star review of West Side Story)
