On March 13, 2012 Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony released a hybrid SACD recording of their performances of John Adams' Harmonielehre and Short Ride in a Fast Machine on the Orchestra's own SFS Media label.

On December 6, 2012 the recording was nominated for a Grammy award in the category of Best Orchestral Performance. The 55th Annual Grammy Awards take place on February 10, 2013.

The recording was released in conjunction with the Orchestra's month-long American Mavericks festival and tour. The SFS commissioned, premiered and recorded Harmonielehre in March 1985 during Adams' tenure as SFS composer in residence, and Michael Tilson Thomas commissioned Short Ride in a Fast Machine from John Adams in 1986.

This and all SFS Media recordings are available from the Symphony Store in Davies Symphony Hall and online at sfsymphony.org/store as well as other major retailers. The recordings can also be purchased as downloads from iTunes and Amazon and other digital outlets.
