- Hmmm. I dunno, guys. This week the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra is performing Tchaikovsky‘s Francesca da Rimini – okay, I’m on board so far. Then Stephen Hough plays us Liszt‘s second piano concerto – that should be interesting. The closer? The second symphony of Sibelius… right. Like I said. I dunno. Oh, I kid, I kid, Jeannie. Should be good! February 7 at Strathmore; February 8 & 9 at the Meyerhoff. [ See it! ]
- For those of who are an inexplicably rooming with small children and need to get them out of the house, the National Symphony Orchestra offers one of their Kindkonzerts, simply titled “Break It Down!” As far as I can tell, a percussionist and flutist are going to explain how instruments work. Musically, not mechanically. Although that would also be interesting. Who can tell? February 9. [ See it! ]
- This week at Strathmore: Jazz violin, slam poetry and hip hop, electric cellist and composer Wytold. [ See the calendar! ]
