R. Strauss’s Also sprach Zarathustra must be experienced live to feel its astonishing force. Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony celebrate the 150th anniversary of the birth of R. Strauss with this awe-inspiring work, a symphonic spectacular made famous in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Other works featured in 2001 as well as American masterpieces by Foss and Ives complete the program.
