The legendary Michael Tilson Thomas-San Francisco Symphony Mahler cycle is presented together for the first time in a 17-Hybrid SACD box set, with a neverbefore-released bonus of mezzo-soprano Susan Graham singing Rückert Lieder accompanied by MTT at the piano.
The foremost Mahler cycle of our time, by Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony, is brought together for the first time in a single package: a magnificent collection of 17 Hybrid SACDs enclosed in elegant gatefold digi-packs and housed in a stylish and compact box set. In addition to all of Mahler’s Symphonies and the Songs with Orchestra, the set includes the first ever release of mezzo-soprano Susan Graham singing Rückert Lieder accompanied by Michael Tilson Thomas at the piano. The release coincides with the 100th anniversary of Mahler’s death on 18 May, as well as the Symphony’s European tour to such cultural capitals as Barcelona, Brussels, Luxembourg, Madrid, Paris, Prague and Vienna.
The MTT-SFS Mahler series has sold over 130,000 units worldwide, earned international critical acclaim, and received seven Grammy’s and a Gramophone Award. This new presentation is an efficient and affordable way to acquire Mahler’s entire orchestral output by the composer’s most notable modern-day interpreters.
