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 Consort celebrates Christmas at the court and chapel of Henry VIII, where, if you were queen, you could briefly enjoy music of rustic pleasures and contrapuntal sophistication. In the Elizabethan Theatre beautifully decked out for the season, Renaissance winds and a quartet of male vocalists perform traditional ballads and carols, along with music by chapel master William Cornysh and pieces by King Henry himself.
Folger Consort with Philip Cave, Robert Eisenstein, Bob McDonald, Drew Minter, Robert Petillo, Dan Stillman, Webb Wiggins and Tom Zajac.
