Keeping Score: MTT on Music is a major initiative of the San Francisco Symphony aimed at offering audiences of today a connection to classical music and the powerful emotions it conveys. Anchored by a major television series designed for PBS, the project will encompass the Internet, radio, and DVDs, as well as educational and outreach programs throughout the United States.

The 2-part TV pilot on this DVD features an in-depth look at Tchaikovsky's fourth symphony. In Part 1 "The Making of a Performance," Music Director Michael Tilson Thomas and members of the San Francisco Symphony talk about their passion - music, how they became involved in it, and how they use their instruments, training, and experience to bring the composer's thoughts and emotions to life.

Part 2 is a full length, live concert performance of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No. 4. MTT delves into the notes and symbols that make up Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony, and unlocks the drama, pathos, elation and despair within. He takes you behind the scenes to experience the preparation behind every performance - the solitary practice sessions, the group rehearsals, the efforts of each musician to grasp the composer's ultimate message - "This is how life is."

In addition to the PBS show, this DVD also includes a narrated graphic history of Tchaikovsky. The widescreen format visuals are supported by 5.1 surround sound audio. This all-region disc includes subtitles in German, French, Spanish, Italian and Chinese.

"The live performance of the symphony is beautifully shot and edited, making full use of the widescreen canvas and 5.1 surround sound... the sonics are really superb - clean, wide-range and with a huge dynamic ratio. I found this the best video translation of a concert music I have ever seen." - Audiophile Audition
