Great performance. Two hour long concert with no intermission is tough to sit still through. On my recording I only listen to the first movement. After the pre-concert lecture I had greater appreciation for the following movements.

Big, theatrical, wonderful. I found myself loving MTT and the SF Symphony as much as I love Timmy and the Giants. And sitting on the end seat of the first tier was fine. I got to stretch my legs and bounce around.
