Celebrating their 20th season together, Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) and the San Francisco Symphony (SFS) perform nine concerts in seven U.S. cities from November 12-22 at Carnegie Hall in New York City, Boston, Miami, Cleveland, Kansas City, Ann Arbor, and Princeton. The concerts showcase repertoire by Mahler, Ravel, Liszt, and Prokofiev, along with Drift and Providence, a work co-commissioned by the SFS from Samuel Adams, who performs with the Orchestra on tour.

MTT assumed his post as the SFS’s eleventh Music Director in September 1995. MTT is now the longest-tenured music director for a major American orchestra, and the longest-serving music director in the San Francisco Symphony’s history.

As part of their 20th season celebration together, MTT and the SFS will release a new recording of short works entitled Masterpieces in Miniature on its in-house label SFS Media on Tuesday, November 11. The collection features music by Mahler, Debussy, Schubert, Dvořák, Sibelius, Ives and more, including pianist Yuja Wang performing Litolff. With this recording, MTT shares some of his most personal musical memories with listeners.
