From masterworks by Renaissance composers William Byrd and Claudio Monteverdi to Bach, Haydn, Beethoven, Brahms and Wagner, then on to Igor Stravinsky, Carl Orff, John Tavener, and Morten Lauridsen, your onstage guides will be conductor Norman Scribner and Classical WETA's Deborah Lamberton, who spoke with Norman about his vision for this one-of-a-kind concert.
