Archduke Franz Ferdinand of Austria was assassinated 100 years ago as of this June -- an event that triggered a domino effect leading to World War I. It was one of the deadliest wars in history, and yet it was also a time of great creativity and musical innovation. To mark the 100th anniversary of the Great War, Cal Performances is hosting the Vienna Philharmonic and launching a series of discussions about the intersection of war, politics, art and music. We discuss the series.

Guests:

Matias Tarnopolsky, executive and artistic director of Cal Performances

David Harrington, founder, violinist and artistic director of Kronos Quartet
