Midday Classical: Michael Tilson Thomas is 65

12/21/09 10:00AM By Walter Parker

Conductor Michael Tilson Thomas is 65 today.  We'll hear him leading the San Francisco Symphony, of which he is Music Director, in Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 4, which resonates with the season: sleigh bells at the beginning and a child's vision of heavenly delights as a finale.
