The CSO’s highly successful multimedia series Beyond the Score reveals the story behind great works of music, with dramatized commentary and multimedia illustrations. The first half of the concert is a live documentary with an engaging exploration of the score, discussion of its context in history, and live musical examples. Following intermission the work is played in its entirety.
