In 2020, Michael Tilson Thomas will step down as Musical Director of San Francisco Symphony after 25 years. To pay tribute to the conductor, we’ve created a music CD display on 3A with titles that span “MTT’s” career including his work with London Symphony Orchestra and New World Symphony. MTT is known for championing 20th-century iconoclasts like Charles Ives, Steve Reich, and Morton Feldman. Mechanics’ is home to a large collection of 20th-century classical music, including pieces by these composers conducted by MTT. Stop by our new display on 3A and reflect on MTT’s career.
Did you know CDs can be enjoyed in the library? We have portable CD players and headphones one can check out from the 3rd Floor Information Desk.
