Adams: Harmonielehre, Short Ride in a Fast Machine
(Compact Disc: Michael Tilson Thomas, San Francisco Symphony)
2013 Grammy Winner for Best Orchestral Performance
“When Harmonielehre burst onto the scene in 1985, it created a sensation and received numerous performances worldwide; however, unlike other works from that time that made a big initial splash, the piece has held onto a solid place within the regularly performed repertoire...no one who loves this work will want to be without this resplendent new offering from Tilson Thomas and his superlative orchestra. Sonically, this live SACD is characterized by lucid, X-ray-like detailing, huge dynamic and frequency ranges, and an almost three-dimensional soundstage with plenty of ambient width and depth.” — Merlin Patterson, Fanfare.
Available for a gift of $150 or more.
