Mahler's immense creation—featuring hundreds of musicians, three choruses, and soloists—is a symphony so epic in scope that it has been dubbed the "Symphony of A Thousand." Mahler's Eighth—a tale of damnation and salvation—is quintessentially a romantic work, but it owes a great debt to the towering Baroque choral works of J.S. Bach. The San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas are joined by a powerhouse of talent including sopranos Erin Wall, Elza van den Heever, and Laura Claycomb, mezzo-sopranos Katarina Karnéus and Yvonne Naef, tenor Anthony Dean Griffey, baritone Quinn Kelsey, and bass-baritone James Morris. Also featured are the San Francisco Symphony Chorus, Pacific Boychoir, and San Francisco Girls Chorus. To learn more please visit http://www.sfsymphony.org
