[PAST EVENT] W&M Symphony Orchestra Special Performance in Northern Virginia

March 19, 2011
Rachel M. Schlesinger Concert Hall, Northern Virginia Community College, Alexandria Campus
Celebrate the 200th anniversary of the pianist-composer Franz Liszt's birth with W&M faculty Maria Yefimova at the piano, {{http://web.wm.edu/so/orchestra/mariayefimova.html}} performing his second piano concerto that showcases not only the piano but soloists from within the orchestra.

After the Soviet victory over Hitler in 1945, Stalin expected a victorious, triumphant symphony from Shostakovich. He instead responded with an unexpectedly short and lithe work, filled with sarcasm, humor and melancholy.
