Here & Now music opinionator Fran Hoepfner about her music pick for Valentine's Day: Franz Schubert's "Great Symphony." She says she hears "a lot of hope" in the symphony even though the composer tragically lived a short life. And, police shot and killed 1,055 people in the U.S. in 2021, a record for police killings even in the wake of George Floyd's murder and a pandemic. Marisa Iati of The Washington Post joins us.
