Impromptu, Tuesday at 3:00 PM
ZOFO, which is shorthand for 20-finger orchestra (ZO=20 and FO=finger orchestra), performs heart-pumping duet arrangements of famous orchestral pieces such as Stravinsky’s “Rite of Spring,” exploring the realms in which many composers first experienced their symphonic visions. Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi started playing together in 2009, and have a new CD called Mosh Pit. Check them out on this WFMT Impromptu, playing selections from the CD on Tuesday at 3:00 PM. Check back for updates and podcast.
