Mahler: Symphony No. 4

San Francisco Symphony

The SFS and MTT present Mahler's Symphony No. 4, recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall in the concerts of September 24-28, 2003.

[Michael Tilson Thomas'] interpretation is warm and affectionate, but lucid and luminous. The San Francisco's playing is clear, colorful, and sensitive with beautiful solo wind playing. Soprano Laura Claycomb's singing of the finale is pure and affecting with a wonderful last verse.

- James Leonard, AllMusic Review

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 on Super Audio CD players.
