There's intense (North Sea oil-rig workers; Humvee drivers in Helmand Province), there's what-fucking-day-of-the-week-is-it? (hospital interns and Google code writers). . . and there's pianist Orli Shaham. The daughter of scientists, she studied at Juilliard while at Columbia, dazzled as a duetist with violinist brother Gil, has headlined around the world as a soloist (La Scala, Milan; Toscana, Florence), helped create the hugely popular Baby Got Bach program in New York (toddlers meet Johann Sebastian and love him), raises 5-year-old twin sons with hubby David Robertson (music director of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra) and performs just about any damn place she wishes. Catch this human whirlwind in a memorable afternoon of Mozart with Pacific Symphony. Uh, Soka it to us, baby!
