      Beethoven: Symphony No 2 in D major, Op 36 (34:48)

      San Francisco Symphony / Michael Tilson Thomas

      This powerful new recording from Michael Tilson-Thomas and the Grammy Award-winning San Francisco Symphony and Chorus pairs Beethoven’s colossal ‘Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II’ with his playful, upbeat Symphony No 2. Rarely performed or recorded, Beethoven’s gripping and profoundly moving funeral cantata proved a revelation during the Symphony’s May 2013 Beethoven Project concert series. Presented as a premium quality hybrid multi-channel SACD, this album is the latest addition to the San Francisco Symphony’s ongoing series of Beethoven recordings.
