Launched in 2004, Keeping Score was designed by Michael Tilson Thomas to make classical music accessible to people of all ages and from all musical backgrounds.  Comprised of nine one-hour documentaries, Keeping Score details the lives of eight major composers from around the world, and explores the motivations and influences behind their most canonical works. Each episode is accompanied by a one-hour concert program performed by the San Francisco Symphony.  Thomas considers creating Keeping Score one of the most exciting journeys he and the San Francisco Symphony have taken together.  It was made available to the public because of COVID.  This term we attend lectures on the following composers and experience their compositions.   Tchaikovsky:  Symphony No. 4; Mahler: 1st Symphony; Mahler: Songs of a Wayfarer and a Mahler Journey; Stravinsky: Rite of Spring; Ives: Holidays Symphony and Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5.
