The Fairfax Symphony's next concert will be played twice--at George Mason's Center for the Arts in Fairfax on Saturday, January 14, 2012, and at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas on Sunday afternoon, the 15th. Music Director Christopher Zimmerman conducts the emotionally-charged 11th Symphony by Dmitri Shostakovich, Haydn's 1st Cello Concerto, and Glazunov's Minstrel's Song. The cellist in the Haydn and Glazunov pieces is Sergey Antonov. Classical WETA's David Ginder chats with Mo. Zimmerman about his soloist for these concerts, and about the challenges and satisfactions of playing Shostakovich.
