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.

FANTASTIC! it was all I had hoped for! When those most-famous 4-notes of Beethoven's 5th Symphony hit your ears, all is good in this troubled world, if for only a few moments! The Boston Symphony Orchestra lived up to their reputation, as one of the best in the world! Thank you Goldstar.
Quotes & Highlights
“Abbado maintained a knife-edge tension throughout; even the lyrical passages had a restless ebb and flow, and the finale had an underlying urgency. Abbado’s attention to details of phrasing and colour was imaginative throughout, and he brought to the piece breadth, depth and ecstatic sweep.” — The Guardian

This performance will be conducted by Roberto Abbado, artistic partner of the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra and nephew of the legendary Claudio Abbado. The orchestra will be joined by pianist Peter Serkin for Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto, part of a new program which also includes Haydn’s Symphony No. 93 and Beethoven’s beloved Symphony No. 5.
