ABOUT KEEPING SCORE

Keeping Score investigates the stories behind classical music. Regardless of your musical background, the San Francisco Symphony and Michael Tilson Thomas are ready to conduct you through the history and modern interpretations of masterworks.

Season 2, Revealing Classical Music, presents three episodes and two concert programs. Michael Tilson Thomas and the musicians of the San Francisco Symphony explore the music and stories of Hector Berlioz, Charles Ives, and Dmitri Shostakovich, composers who each struggled with musical language as an expression of their ideas. 

Season 1, Revolutions in Music, focused on the meaning of music, with episodes devoted to Beethoven, Stravinsky, and Copland, highlighting what made their music so revolutionary and why it is still so powerful today.
