FROM THIS EPISODE

It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call the late Ernest Fleischmann a titanic figure in the world of classical music. He put Los Angeles on the cultural map in his long reign as head of the LA Philharmonic and revived the Hollywood Bowl as an LA tradition. Guest host Martin Perlich remembers Ernest with LA Times Music Critic Mark Swed, composers William Kraft and John Williams, and longtime Fleischmann associate, Vanessa Butler.
