Michael Tilson Thomas, San Francisco Symphony Music Director (Episode #201H)

KQED 9: Mon, Jun 15, 2009 -- 10:30 PM

Think Perry Como and Igor Stravinsky have nothing in common? Think again! As Josh finds out from Michael Tilson Thomas, the connections between contemporary and classical music can often be surprising. For more than a decade MTT has earned international acclaim as the San Francisco Symphony's music director and conductor. But one of his proudest achievements to date is giving viewers an intimate look at classical music composition and performance through his PBS documentary series "Keeping Score." He's got a sneak preview for Josh - and we'll see what the maestro thinks of Josh's own talents on the oboe.
