The Boston Symphony Orchestra
conducted by Seiji Ozawa and featuring The Boston Pops
Conducted by Arthur Fiedler
The Boston Symphony Orchestra was founded in 1881 by Henry Lee Higginson, a Boston financier. For 40 years Higginson paid all the orchestra's debts from his own pocket. Even today, the orchestra could not survive without contributions from private sources. The list of permanent conductors has included many distinguished names, but the influence of Serge Koussevitsky's dominant personality, who was Music Director from 1924 to 1949, is still felt by the orchestra today.
The music includes extracts from:
Bartok Concerto for Orchestra
Brahms Symphony No 2
Berlioz Rakoczy March
Charles Ives Central Park in the Dark
Ravel La Valse
Beethoven Violin Concerto in D
Soloist Isaac Stern
"A fascinating close-up of a great Orchestra." (Sunday Mirror)

But how far are we prepared to go in eliminating crippling and killing diseases? Should we force abortion on a woman carrying a spina bifida or mongol baby? Should we insist that carriers of the horrifying Huntington's Chorea be sterilised? Just who is deciding which of our future citizens are not fit to be born?
