The National Philharmonic’s 2012-2013 season is full of exciting performances by the Orchestra, the Chorale, and brilliant soloists. Among the highlights are guest artists Denyce Graves, Stefan Jackiw, Orli Shaham and Brian Ganz. The Chopin Project continues with Mr. Ganz playing the first two Ballades, the 24 Preludes, Op. 28, and more. Handel’s Messiah will be given three performances this year, and the Washington Symphonic Brass will return for a holiday concert. Anniversary celebrations for Richard Wagner and Witold Lutosławski, as well as the choral favorite Carmina Burana are all part of this dynamic season. Music Director and conductor Piotr Gajewski visited with Marilyn Cooley at the Classical WETA studios to tell us more.
