In season two of “Keeping Score” – the national project of the San Francisco Symphony to make classical music more accessible to the masses – three new programs explore the music and stories behind Hector Berlioz’s symphonic love letter “Symphonie fantastique”; Charles Ives’ sonic portrait of New England with “Holidays Symphony”; and Dmitri Shostakovich’s “Symphony No. 5,” a work that may have saved the composer’s life. This high-def, three-disc documentary program – a follow-up to season one of the series, which premiered on PBS in November 2006 – is packaged with two concert tapings and available on Blu-ray. $24.99 each; http://www.keepingscore.org
