Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony has released their recording of the Mahler: Symphony No. 1 “Titan”.
Like it’s predecessor, a recording of the Mahler: Symphony No. 6 (SFS Media 821936-0001-2) released in February, the new recording is available only as a Hybrid Layer Multichannel SACD on the Orchestra’s SFS Media label. It will play on all current standard CD players, as well as Super Audio CD players and features a 5.1 Multichannel SACD, a Stereo SACD and a Stereo CD track.
The album was recorded during the San Francisco Symphony concerts performed on September 19-22, 2001. This addition to the orchestra’s planned Mahler cycle captures the live-performance of the Grammy award-winning conductor-symphony partnership that the Los Angeles Times has declared “the most exciting Mahler combination anywhere right now.”
1. 1st Movement: Langsam. Schleppend. (Slow. Dragging.)

3. 3rd Movement: Feierlich und gemessen, ohne zu schleppen (Solemn and measured, without dragging)
