"This recording by Michael Tilson Thomas and the Grammy® award-winning San Francisco Symphony features stunning live recordings from the SFS's wildly successful American Mavericks festival. Presented in premium audio, this hybrid SACD includes performances of four works by three influential but seldom heard twentieth century masters. MTT's performances of Henry Cowell's 'Synchrony' and 'Piano Concerto,' with Jeremy Denk on piano, combine Cowell's distinctive musical language with exceptionally expressive playing to produce a powerful musical experience. Lou Harrison's eclectic compositional style and organ soloist Paul Jacobs' spectacular virtuosity are on full display in Harrison's 'Concerto for Organ with Percussion Orchestra.' This one-of-a-kind disc concludes with Edgard Varèse's monumental 'Amériques,' with its orchestral siren that has influenced generations of composers." This is a stereo/multichannel hybrid SACD that can be played on any CD player.
