Edo De Waart conducting the San Francisco Symphony. Recorded at Davies Symphony Hall, San Francisco, November, 1986.
An outstanding compilation of minimalist orchestral music, five works are included on this disc:

Personal Memory Associated with this CD: One of the first CDs I owned, the works here turned me into a huge fan of Adams' early work.
