Episode Notes:
Shooting classical music turns out to a be a lot more challenging than rock bands, but what a pleasure to feature the San Francisco Chamber Orchestra. They perform free concerts to raise awareness and appreciation of classical music. The program I shot was the world premiere of Richard Aldag's piece, and what a wonderful piece of music.

This episode of Finger On The Pulse is dedicated to my father, Norman Gordon, who instilled in me his love of classical music.

Episode Errata:

  • None so far!
