About the album
Michael Tilson Thomas and the Grammy award-winning San Francisco Symphony release an all-new recording of Beethoven’s monumental Ninth Symphony. From its stormy opening to the towering fourth movement, Beethoven’s final and perhaps greatest symphony is also one of the most universally loved. The album features the Grammy award-winning San Francisco Symphony Chorus, bass-baritone Nathan Berg, tenor William Burden, mezzo-soprano Kendall Gladen, and soprano Erin Wall. Beethoven’s Ninth is the latest addition to the San Francisco Symphony’s Beethoven recordings, and is presented in premium audio Hybrid SACD.
