Renowned composer John Luther Adams discusses "The Wind Garden," his soundscape installation for the Stuart Collection at UC San Diego, with the Collection's Mathieu Gregoire.

The animated film Inside Out is a vivid portrait of resilience in eleven-year-old Riley and her animated emotions, who together face a difficult several days following a cross-country move. The film's exploration of Riley's emotional life reflects current neuroscience research, thanks in part to the work of UC Berkeley Professor Dacher Keltner, who served as a scientific consultant to the filmmakers. He is joined by UCSB Professor of Psychology David Sherman and UCSB Professor of Film & Media Studies Anna Brusutti. Recorded on 11/30/2016.

The Last Aristocrats is a film based on a short story by Kenneth Pai, UCSB Professor Emeritus. It follows four young Chinese women from elite Shanghai families who become stranded in the US when the communists take over Shanghai in 1948. Professor Pai, is joined by Professor Michael Berry of UCLA's Contemporary Chinese Cultural Studies. Recorded on 01/17/2017.

In "Facing Off Across Sunset Boulevard" La Jolla Symphony & Chorus celebrate mavericks and visionaries. The concert's title refers to the giants of 20th-century music whose work bookends the program, Arnold Schoenberg and Igor Stravinsky. The two men lived scant miles apart in Los Angeles after fleeing Nazism yet never interacted, separated less by distance than by sharp differences in compositional method, aesthetic direction, and personality. Whatever their differences, their work inspired the other three composers represented on the program - Olivier Messiaen, Hannah Lash, and Toru Takemitsu - to continue their exploration of sonority, classical form, and movement. Recorded on 05/06/2018.

Jazz has been hailed as "America's original art form," and the annual Jazz Camp at UC San Diego is a five-day immersive summer program designed for intermediate to advanced level jazz musicians, ages 14–adult. Students work directly with internationally renowned jazz artists, exploring styles ranging from classic bebop to contemporary open-form. The Camp culminates in a finale concert performed by eight student ensembles, each under the direction of a faculty member. This program showcases highlights from the 2018 Finale concert. Recorded on 06/29/2018.

After meeting Laurie San Martin, one this country's most important ebullient composers, we experience the lightness of a classical great — the seldom-heard 8th Symphony of Beethoven — and conclude with Leonard Bernstein's extraordinary and poignant Symphony No. 3 (Kaddish), with chorus, soprano soloist and narrator. The Bernstein piece, named for the Jewish prayer for the dead, was dedicated to the late President John F. Kennedy and premiered in the days after of his assassination in 1963. It is a reflection simultaneously on the loss of a president and the loss of a generation of European Jews. It is powerful music, but also hopeful. Recorded on 03/17/2019.

Pianist Cecil Lytle and friends celebrate the Jewish folk traditions of Eastern Europe with spoken word, Klezmer music, and songs from the Yiddish theater. Featured performers include bassist Bertram Turetzky, singer Eva Barnes, and the Second Avenue Klezmer Band. Recorded on 01/27/2019.

Renowned cellist Katinka Kleijn is featured in Philip Glass' Cello Concerto No 2, derived from his score for Godfrey Reggio's film "Naqoyqatsi." The Symphony is under the baton of Steven Schick. Recorded on 02/10/2019.

Young Artist Winner Anne Liu performs Camille Saint-Saens' witty "Second Piano Concerto," which has been described as "beginning with Bach and ending with Offenbach." Recorded on 05/05/2019.

Arthur Szyk often said, "Art is not my aim, it is my means." In this talk, Irvin Ungar exposes the viewer to the breadth and depth of the power, purpose, and persuasion of the artist Arthur Szyk who saw himself as a fighting artist, enlisting his pen and paintbrush as his weapons against hatred, racism, and oppression before, during, and after World War II. Recorded on 04/10/2019.
