The American Symphony Orchestra League posted this on their e-mail newsletter today.
|The San Francisco Symphony will undertake a major Mahler recording project, beginning with recordings this month of the composer's Symphonies Nos. 1 and 6. Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and the orchestra intend to record all nine Mahler symphonies and the Adagietto from the unfinished Symphony No. 10 over the next five seasons. The first releases are slated for early 2002 in the new Super Audio CD format, which provides the precision of digital technology while retaining the warmth and ambiance of analog sound. The recordings will be distributed by the orchestra through retail outlets and the SFS web site.|
