Recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall in March 2018, the album features the San Francisco Symphony performing Copland’s Third Symphony, completed in 1946 and described by the composer as an “end-of-war piece—intended to reflect the euphoric spirit of the country at the time.”
Michael Tilson Thomas of Local 47 (Los Angeles, CA) and Local 9-535 (Boston, MA) has championed the music of pioneers of the American sound such as Aaron Copland. Thomas has commented: “What can you say in summation of a man like Aaron Copland? Everything about him marked him as an outsider, and somehow he found a way to be true to himself, his art, and his society.”
San Francisco Symphony musicians are members of Local 6 (San Francisco, CA).
This album will be available for download in high quality, 24-bit/192kHz Studio Master, and for streaming via all major retailers.
