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.

The weather was rainy and chilly.. I wore casual pants and thick sweater. People attending wore a variety of clothing from jeans to dressy Christmas themed.

High quality concert of traditional Russian music. Miraculous sounds produced by authentic Russian instruments are unique in nature, and can't be compared to any traditional orchestra music. This was our 3rd WBS concert, and we loved every single one of them.
