Fischer Plays Bach, Conducts Schoenberg, Strauss

Join us Wednesday at 7PM as Julia Fischer - a great violinist and superb pianist - shows yet another skill, conducting the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields in Richard Strauss's profound Metamorphosen and Arnold Schoenberg's Transfigured Night. Oh, yes - she also plays the violin, soloing in the first violin concertos of both Bach and Mozart, and in some Paganini solo caprices.
