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.

This is an outstanding rendering of Praetorius and his contemporaries.

_In Dulci Jubilo: A German Christmas _
With Cantate Chamber Singers and an ensemble of brass, wind, strings, and organ
The Consort celebrates the holidays in the Elizabethan Theatre with the festive music of Michael Praetorius, the most prolific German composer of the early 17th century. The son of a Lutheran minister, he more than anyone else was responsible for combining the wonderful north German Lutheran chorale tradition with the new Italian developments of the Baroque. In 1610, the last volume of his collection of over 1000 Lutheran chorale settings, Musae Zioniae, was published. The Consort performs some of the great Christmas favorites from this collection, including In Dulci Jubilo, Es ist ein Rose, and Puer Natus Est.
