Grammy Award for Best Orchestral Performance (2002)

Mahler’s Symphony No. 6 is sometimes called the "Tragic" symphony. It shows Mahler at his most devastating, and many think of this music, first heard in 1906, as a prophecy of the horrors of the century to come. This recording was made at the SFS concerts of September 12-15, 2001, immediately following the events of September 11 and captures a passionate response to that day.

This was the first recording by SFS and MTT in the complete Mahler Symphony cycle. Each of Mahler's nine symphonies is a drama, and Michael Tilson Thomas is among the foremost interpreters of these episodes.

The classical Grammys played it safe and proved a popularity contest, stars and standard repertory beating anything up to date or innovative. Michael Tilson Thomas' frighteningly intense performance of Mahler's Sixth Symphony with the San Francisco Symphony is the only real standout among the winners. ” Los Angeles Times
