About the Movie

Deep in the vaults of San Francisco's Davies Symphony Hall is an archive of more than 3600 scores.... virtually the entire classical music repertoire. These scores are more than just collections of notes. They're codebooks, packed with messages from the great composers about their experiences with life. As keeper and interpreter of the great surge of passions each score represents, Michael Tilson Thomas breathes life into dreams and visions that may go back hundreds of years. In this film, MTT delves into the notes and symbols that make up Tchaikovsky's 4th Symphony, and unlocks the drama, pathos, elation and despair within. MTT 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."
