Maestro Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony are proud to announce this most recent installment of their Grammy Award winning Mahler cycle. This critically acclaimed series features the powerfully artistic and passionately musical playing which San Francisco and Tilson-Thomas have made synonymous with the symphonies of Gustav Mahler.

Composed between June 1899 and April 1901, Symphony No. 4 premiered in Munich in November of 1901. As with all Mahler's works, the light and dark themes emerge from folk tunes and receive large colorful orchestrations. With the soprano solo adding warmth and lyricism to the finale, this work has long been a favorite of listeners.

Mahler's Fourth is the most tuneful and upbeat of his symphonies. Its gloriously expansive slow movement offers a picture of heavenly terrain and its vocal finale, with soprano Laura Claycomb, is as freshly innocent as a folk tune.

This disc was recorded using Sony Direct Stream Digital technology and released on the SACD hybrid format, featuring 5.1 channel Super Audio playback. It will play on all current standard CD players, as well as Super Audio CD players.

"This is by any standard an extraordinary achievement, and no one who loves Mahler or this symphony can afford to pass it by." - 10/10
