The Fairfax Symphony concludes its current season on Saturday, May 12, 2012 at George Mason University's Center for the Arts. The English and French concert include Ravel's Piano Concerto for the Left Hand (with Adam Golka), Debussy's "La Mer", Purcell's "Funeral Music of Queen Mary" and his music for "The Gordian Knot Untied", and Elgar's "Enigma Variations." Classical WETA's morning host David Ginder chatted with FSO Music Director Christopher Zimmerman about the life-affirming Elgar variations (enigma or not), the subtlety of Debussy's portrait of the sea, and the astonding magic of a piano concerto that uses only one hand.
Author Sue Eisenfeld discusses the creation of Shenandoah National Park, which involved displacing thousands of longtime residents from Virginia's Blue Ridge mountains.Watch now →
