It was a marathon event, a chamber music concert that lasted almost 12 hours. The occasion was the 50th anniversary of the Young Concert Artists organization, a group devoted to launching the careers of outstanding young musicians. We'll hear highlights from that super-sized concert that featured nearly 100 past and present YCA artists. Plus, Michael Tilson Thomas leads the San Francisco Symphony in Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, the Eroica.
