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.

In this superb season finale, the Choral Arts Society of Washington will begin with “Papa” Haydn’s sunny welcome to Spring from his oratorio The Seasons. They then move to the magnificent world of grand opera, performing works from Boito’s Mefistofele, Verdi’s La Traviata, Gounod’s Faust, and more. This exciting array of operatic excerpts, both familiar and not so familiar, will have every listener leaving the hall with a favorite tune on his or her lips.
