Recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall during the concerts on September 28-October 4, 2004, Mahler's last completed symphony covers territory from the amiable Austrian pastoral to the fury of its "Burleske" to the uninhibited baring, in the finale, of the unprotected heart.

Michael Tilson Thomas has distinguished himself as one of the world's foremost Mahler interpreters, and through his signature performances, as one of the composer's most compelling advocates. In 1974, at the age of 29, he made his SFS debut conducting Mahler's Symphony No. 9.

Reviews
This is a most beautiful Ninth with playing of tremendous warmth and poise. Tilson Thomas confirms his credentials as a major Mahlerian, closing the cycle of completed symphonies with a reading of wonderful lightness and radiance. The recording, made in the SFS's own hall, beautifully captures the ensemble's personality, and, once again, the live experience only adds to the intensity of the music-making. - Gramophone
