Program notes

It was in 1970 that Mickael TilsonThomas made his debut with the London Symphony Orchestra, the same year ad his appointment as associate conductor of the Boston Symphony, after he had found himself making an unexpected New York debut with the previous October, stepping in mid-concert to replace William Steinberg. At the age of only twenty-five, and having already embarked on his prolific recording career with, characteristically, an album of Ives and Ruggles, Tilson Thomas personified the musical wunderkind. Regular television appearances soon followed, starting with the CBS Young People's Concerts in the early 1970s, and they have gone on to form an important part of his musical work.
