- The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra demonstrates that they are both wise and learned by played Beethoven‘s – well, hell, I could finish that sentence with anything, but in this case it’s his third symphony, “Eroica.” Also Schumann‘s violin concerto performed by Kolja Blacher and Rebel‘s The Elements: Chaos. But mostly Beethoven. October 4 at Strathmore; October 5 at the Meyerhoff. [ See it! ]
- The National Symphony Orchestra demonstrates that they are neither wise nor learned by performing the overture to Tchaikovsky‘s Romeo and Juliet. Oh, that was mean – lots of
stupidpeople like it. I mean people like it! Oh, Piotr, you know I love you. Also a selection from Wagner‘s Tristan und Isolde, some Lieberson, and more Tchaikovsky, to cleanse the palate. October 4 – 6. [ See it! ]
- This week at Strathmore: traditional Mexican music and dance, classical Indian music, and – please turn off your cell phones – the incomparable Patti LuPone. [ See the calendar! ]
