San Francisco Chamber Music Society:
A Concert from November 15, 1976

Listen
Item Type: Sound Recording Duration: 100 min
Event Type: Music Program Origin: KPFA

On November 15, 1976 the most unconventional composers in the Bay Area at the time presented a program of new music to the San Francisco Chamber Music Society a group who usually hosted more conventional classical music. Imagine a fish aquarium with staff lines drawn on it. Now play the fish as they move up and down the scale in the bowl. You now have the concept of Ramón Sender’s “Tropical Fish Opera”, an infamous work that, for a short time, became the talk of the town here in San Francisco.
