Michael Tilson Thomas conducts Ives & Copland
Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony follow their recently completed Mahler cycle with a series of new live recordings, including the Henry Brant arrangement of Ives’ Concord Symphony uniquely paired with Copland’s Organ Symphony featuring Paul Jacobs.
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.
Amongst the first of these new releases is Ives’ Concord Symphony arranged by Pulitzer-prize winning composer Henry Brant, uniquely paired with Copland’s Organ Symphony featuring Paul Jacobs.
“The live recording...is absolutely stunning, with the organ clearly spaced in Davies Hall, allowing Paul Jacobs to be in the foreground, and yet an integral part of the orchestra, as the composer intended.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2011 *****
“[The Concord Mass] demands playing of tireless energy and gentle lyrical touch. This superb orchestra rises to the challenges, although the players sound more at ease with the long, clear lines musical lines of Copland's magnificent Organ Symphony. It's difficult to imagine a finer performance than this one, with a mighty solo instrument and the orchestra beautifully balanced against each other.” Classic FM Magazine, May 2010 ****
“Paul Jacobs faultlessly exploits this fine score. With this degree of drama, eloquence and style, it's the ideal recording of this incomprehensibly neglected work...Brant has added an imposing document to the Ives repertoire and these two live recordings are a stunning success.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2011
“In 'Emerson', Tilson Thomas is a sure guide to the music's emotional breadth as Brant hears it...Similarly in 'Hawthorne', Tilson Thomas renders the more extrovert passages - such as the jazzy episode near its centre - with undeniable verve.” International Record Review, April 2011
