Resurrecting Mahler on Blu-ray
In a year marking the centenary of both the death of Gustav Mahler and the birth of the San Francisco Symphony, the orchestra’s Keeping Score project focuses on the enigmatic composer with this two-disc home video set featuring Dolby® TrueHD.
Michael Tilson Thomas returns to the provincial Austro-Hungarian city of Mahler’s childhood, and bears witness to his grand achievements, great sorrows, and daring musical explorations into the depths of the human soul.
Disc 1: Origins and Legacy documentary (1 hour, 53 minutes)
Disc 2: Two concert performances by the San Francisco Symphony: Symphony no. 1 (56 minutes); and A Mahler Journey, featuring selected movements of Symphony nos. 5 (Adagietto), 7 (Scherzo), 9 (Rondo burleske), and Songs of a Wayfarer with baritone Thomas Hampson (55 minutes)
Keeping Score: Mahler completes the San Francisco Symphony’s ten-year exploration of Mahler’s music through its Grammy® Award-winning Mahler recording cycle on SFS Media™.
