This release from 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 hybrid SACD, American Mavericks includes performances of four works by three influential but seldom heard twentieth century masters. Performances of Henry Cowell's Synchrony and his 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's spectacular virtuosity are on full display in Harrison's Concert for Organ with Percussion orchestra. This one-of-a-kind disc concludes with Edgard Varèse's monumental Amériques and the orchestral siren that has influenced generations of composers. To learn more visit http://www.sfsymphony.org
