Michael Tilson Thomas (MTT) is acclaimed for his work as a conductor, composer and as one of the great communicators about music in the world today.
In The MTT Files, MTT metaphorically pulls out some of his "files" - files full of ideas about music and art, and reminiscences of the legendary artists he has known throughout his career – to create eight very original and personal one-hour radio programs. The "house band" for The MTT Files is the San Francisco Symphony, with music throughout the episodes drawn from live recordings during the 12 years MTT has been Music Director of the Orchestra.
The MTT Files are part of the San Francisco Symphony's acclaimed Keeping Score project, which includes a national PBS television series, public radio series, interactive websites, and K-12 Education and Community programs, all designed to make classical music more accessible to people of all ages and musical backgrounds.
Singer/songwriter Suzanne Vega is once again joining MTT after hosting the immensely popular "American Mavericks" radio series.
