About This Performance
He was born in Los Angeles, and Michael Tilson Thomas’ artistry was forged at USC, Monday Evening Concerts, and the Ojai Festival. He shot to international fame in 1969 as Assistant Conductor of the Boston Symphony, and his subsequent career included a period as principal guest conductor of the Los Angeles Philharmonic. He was principal conductor of the London Symphony Orchestra from 1988 to 1995, when he became Music Director of the San Francisco Symphony. He stayed on with the LSO, however, as principal guest conductor, touring and recording extensively with it.
Come for: The combination of Michael Tilson Thomas and George Gershwin. The Gershwin Live! album he recorded with Sarah Vaughan and the LA Phil in 1990 is still in print.
And more: Powerhouse pianist Yuja Wang adds even more spark to this already electric concert.
