(December 3) ANGELA HEWITT PLAYS BACH You can get "Bach" to basics with Angela Hewitt, one of the world's pre-eminent performers of Johann Sebastian's revered music. Hewitt takes the stage tonight at [The Strathmore Music Center] (http://www.strathmore.org/) in North Bethesda with Bach's [Goldberg Variations] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goldberg_Variations). Her resume shows she's well qualified for the task-Hewitt spent 11 years recording nothing but Bach's works.

(December 4 & 5) THE WINTER'S TALE Classical theatre and radio drama intersect at Lean & Hungry Theatre's [The Winter's Tale] (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Winter%27s_Tale) tomorrow night and Saturday at [St. Stephen Episcopal Church] (http://www.saintstephensdc.org/) in Mount Pleasant. Shakespeare's play of jealousy and forgiveness is performed with old-school sound effects in front of a live audience. If you miss the show, you can catch it as a podcast, Webcast, broadcast, or CD.

(December 5) ESPERANZA SPALDING QUARTET And if your jazz hands have nothing to do this Saturday night, you can head over to [The Sixth and I Historic Synagogue] (http://www.sixthandi.org/) for the [Esperanza Spalding Quartet] (http://www.myspace.com/esperanzaspalding). This quadruple-threat of jazz fusion blends a myriad of styles and harmonies.
