Keeping Score: 13 Days When Music Changed Forever

KeepingScoreTilsonThomas.jpg

The San Francisco Symphony’s radio project, The Keeping Score Series: 13 Days When Music Changed Forever, is about musical revolutions—about the composers, compositions, and musical movements that changed the way people heard, or thought about, music.

Each program will explore the historical backdrop and the musical precursors to the revolutionary change, as well as examine the aftershock and the lasting influence of that moment in music history. 

Hear the first installment - February 24, 1607: The premiere of Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo; a program about the dawn of opera - on Sunday, January 15, 5 to 6 pm.

Singer Suzanne Vega is host.
