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.
