Keeping Score (http://www.keepingscore.org/)

Keeping Score is the Educational site of the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. Created in conjunction with Michael Tilson Thomas, it is packed full of various fun and informative elements on musical performance, music history, and insights into elements found in specific works.

It really is a site aimed at those with a serious interest in music, with sections on the historical setting of Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony (which looks at elements of the score), to information on Berlioz’s Symphony Fantastique and Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring.
