PENTATONE to Release Collection of Michael Tilson Thomas’ Compositions in Fall 2024

The San Francisco Conservatory of Music (SFCM), PENTATONE’s parent company, has named conductor and composer Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) as their institution’s Distinguished Professor of Music. To celebrate MTT’s artistic achievements in the year of his 80th birthday, PENTATONE will honor Tilson Thomas’ lifetime of contributions as a composer by releasing a deluxe collection of CDs and digital recordings of MTT’s compositions, titled Grace: The Music of Michael Tilson Thomas, in fall 2024.

The project comprises 18 works, all in Dolby Atmos spatial audio, from a wide variety of sources, including premiere recordings produced exclusively for this collection, remastered archival performances from the San Francisco Symphony and New World Symphony, and previously released recordings from artists and other labels. This comprehensive project will stream on all platforms, will include composer’s notes, and will be supported by a new website featuring a media-rich catalog of the critical editions of his compositions.
