 Michael Tilson Thomas Conductor


Beethoven’s colossal Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II for chorus, soloists, and orchestra and his playful, upbeat Second Symphony combine on this powerful new recording from Michael Tilson Thomas and the Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony and Chorus. Rarely performed and recorded, this gripping and profoundly moving funeral cantata proved a revelation during the Symphony’s May 2013 Beethoven Project. The recording features the Symphony, Chorus, and a glorious solo quartet - soprano Sally Matthews, mezzo-soprano Tamara Mumford, tenor Barry Banks, and bass-baritone Andrew Foster-Williams - all conducted by MTT. Presented as a premium audio hybrid SACD, this album is the latest addition to the San Francisco Symphony’s ever growing collection of Beethoven recordings.

                     Music *** (Good)     Sound ***** (Excellent)

Andreas Friesenhagen - Fono Forum magazine - March 2014


 "...This SACD is a triumph of the nice, and very much worth having."

Steven Kruger - Fanfare - March/April 2014
