- Ooh! Ooh ooh ooh! Guess what the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is performing this week? Why, it’s Mussourgsky‘s Pictures at an Exhibiition, of course! Then they try to ruin my beautiful “At the Great Gates of Kiev” with a Mozart piano concerto (Orion Weiss on the piano if you’re wondering) and some Hindemith (stupid Hindemith), but my man Modest is just too strong for them. January 31 & February 1 at the Meyerhoff; February 2 at Strathmore. [ See it! ]
- No National Symphony Orchestra concert this week.
- This week at Strathmore: The China National Symphony Orchestra is coming, and I have it on good authority they’ll be performing the world’s most perfect piece of music. What’s that? You’re not sure what I mean? Um, Beethoven‘s Symphony No. 7, obviously. What is wrong with you? [ See the calendar! ]
If you’d like your concert included in next week’s roundup, leave a comment or drop me a line.
