In Music for a City, Music for the World, Larry Rothe shares how the San Francisco Bay Area s love of music, rooted in the Gold Rush, gave birth to a Grammy-winning and internationally acclaimed orchestra. Released in time for the San Francisco Symphony s celebration of its 100th anniversary, this definitive history replete with hundreds of archival photos and images gives readers a behind-the-scenes glimpse into one of the world s foremost orchestras and, in so doing, illuminates the cultural life of a city.

About the Author:

Larry Rothe is co-author of For the Love of Music and longtime editor of the San Francisco Symphony's program book. He lives in Berkeley, California.

Review:

"Engrossing."-Wall Street Journal

Music for a City is definitely a book for dipping into. We can excuse the sheer heft and size of the edition. Commuters may not be able to schlep it on BART, but it makes for a great read at home on a cold winter's night, and as a reference source, it is invaluable. The big book is also highly entertaining. There is something endearing evident on every glossy page. It seems Rothe is as much in love with the city and the San Francisco Symphony as the rest of us.
--The Bay Area Reporter

"Superb...a compendious tour through the past 100 years."-San Francisco Chronicle

""Lovingly prepared and elegantly designed and produced, this volume...celebrates the orchestra's centennial in text and photos. The narrative is fun and engaging, beginning with description of "civilization's frontier" in the early years of the 20th century and the details of what it took to build an orchestra there" - Book News

"Splendid...compelling."-San Jose Mercury News

"Music for a City, Music for the World" is an outstanding tribute to the symphony's centennial, and an attractive invitation to its next 100 years." - Bay Area News Group
