Canadian pianist and former child prodigy Angela Hewitt may be best known for her nine-year recording project featuring a complete cycle of Bach's major keyboard works, but for her National Symphony Orchestra debut, she'll perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 22. As heard in the award-winning film Amadeus, that diverse work includes difficult solos and a lively finale that's book-ended by a poignant minuet. Conductor David Zinman leads the NSO through another famous film theme as well, Strauss' Also sprach Zarathustra, so compellingly used in Stanley Kubrick's ground-breaking 2001: A Space Odyssey.

Parking is NOT free for shows at the Levine School of Music, but is free for the Strathmore. Confusing and disappointing.Percussionists Manny Arciniega and Adam Green: Unknown Voices travel • May 08 2014 star this tip starred
Leave home early, even if you live close. At this time of year and time of evening, Rockville Pike and other roads are usually bumper-to-bumper, plus the line to get into the parking lot (from Rockville Pike onto Tuckerman Lane, (vs. where you enter for the Mansion, despite the posted road sign), is one lane, also bumper to bumper. Parking is free but another challenge still lies ahead with long waits for elevators in the parking garage, transversing the long, elevated corrider between the parking lot and the venue, and additional elevators with long lines inside the venue, which take you to the level of your assigned seats (there is an elevator operator checking tickets and telling individuals if they're on the correct elevator, etc.). If you're not familiar with this whole scenario, best to leave a trail of breadcrumbs from your parking space to your seat, assuming there are no birds in sight. : \A Candlelight Christmas travel • Dec 24 2013 star this tip starred

I was at first dismayed that the concert was in a small education room at Strathmore, filled by families and their presumably musician but school-aged children. The piano playing, however, was professional and exquisite. I enjoyed it much more than I did the Chopin concert the week before in my $38 very distant seats in Strathmore proper.
