Great American Orchestras II

Esteemed American orchestras take audiences on a musical journey through symphonic gems from around the world. Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony convey the awe-inspiring mystery of Mahler’s hymn to nature and existence in its totality, the Boston Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Bernard Haitink performs one of the most powerful works of recent times, and the Minnesota Orchestra completes its epic Sibelius symphony cycle and performs the Finnish composer’s great last works.
