A concert given in honor of Gerhard Samuel, recorded February 1, 1971 at the Fireman's Fund Theater in San Francisco. Samuel was a talented conductor and composer who was very active in the Bay Area during the 1960s and early 1970s, serving as musical director of the Oakland Symphony (1959-71), the San Francisco Ballet (1961-71) and the Cabrillo Music Festival (1963-68). He was well-known as a stalwart supporter of contemporary classical music and was responsible for exposing a whole generation of Northern California audiences to works by Karlheinz Stockhausen, Terry Riley, and Henry Brant, among others.
