The Fairfax Symphony's next concerts are Saturday evening, March 17, 2012 at George Mason University's Center for the Arts, and Sunday afternoon, March 18th at the Hylton Performing Arts Center in Manassas. Music Director Christopher Zimmerman conducts. Pianist Rick Rowley joins the orchestra for Franz Liszt's 2nd Concerto. The 1919 suite from Stravinsky's Firebird opens the concert, and it concludes with two works by Jean Sibelius (as the Fairfax Symphony concludes its three-year focus on the Finnish composer) — Finlandia, and his 7th Symphony. Classical WETA morning host David Ginder chats with Mo. Zimmerman about the pinnacle of Sibelius's symphonies, why he wrote nothing during the last three decades of his life, and why there are three different Firebird suites.
