About

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony unleash the passion and triumph of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No.5 and Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture, in a live, 192/24 bit recording released as a Hybrid SACD.

Passion, love and triumph, as imagined by Tchaikovsky, are captured in sweeping glory by the award-winning, chart-topping team. Tchaikovsky's heroic Fifth Symphony and the passionate Romeo and Juliet Overture, which features one of the best-known love themes ever written - receive rapturous performances under a conductor whose Russian roots reveal the very essence of the composer's emotional output.

Tilson Thomas says “It has been possible in my life to not only perform [Tchaikovsky’s Fifth] a lot, but to harken back to the sense of elegance that Piatigorsky, Heifetz and Rubinstein imparted to me about this kind of music.” Captured live in the orchestra’s home, Davies Symphony Hall, the audiophile release was recorded in 192/24 bit and is released as a Hybrid SACD.
