“I think Ives is America’s greatest composer because he’s more than a musician.”—Michael Tilson Thomas

“Gloriously gut-punching”—San Francisco Chronicle

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony add an evocative recording of Ives’s songful Symphonies Nos. 3 and 4 to the SFS Media label’s Grammy award-winning discography. With 19th-century Americana spirit, MTT and the SF Symphony, pianist Peter Dugan, and the SFS Chorus’s musical candor and clarity make for a “gloriously gut-punching” (San Francisco Chronicle) live-concert recording—available now on studio master-quality SACD, digital download, and streaming.
