It’s a freewheeling, opinionated conversation with an analytical bent, richly illustrated with musical examples. No expertise required. The series began by tackling “100 Years of Film Scores,” the AFI’s list of (purportedly) the 25 greatest scores in American cinema history, and now draws from a broad range of distinguished scores old and new.
