The latest album from Michael Tilson Thomas and the GRAMMY Award-winning San Francisco Symphony features breathtaking live recordings from the SFS’ widely acclaimed American Mavericks festival. American Mavericks includes scintillating performances of four works by three influential twentieth century masters: Henry Cowell’s Synchrony and his Piano Concerto, Lou Harrison’s Concerto for Organ with Percussion Orchestra and Edgard Varese’s Ameriques and the orchestral siren that has influenced generations of composers.
Tilson Thomas and the San Franciscans were at their best in honoring the monuments of the maverick tradition... Other orchestras hardly touch this music, but in San Francisco it has become standard fare, and the authority of the playing was staggering. -- Alex Ross, The New Yorker
