San Francisco Symphony’s wonderful PBS/NPR Series “Keeping Score” features a wonderful series of 59-minute radio profiles on groundbreaking musical events..  From Monteverdi to Mozart to Minimialism, these are interesting and enlightening programs. Among them is Program #6, a visit to the first Bayreuth Festival – August 13, 1876.

You can play on demand through NPR’s archive website Public Radio Exchange:…
