@ Elmar Oliveira is one of America's finest violinists and the only American fiddler ever to take a first prize in Moscow's Tchaikovsky Competition. His sizzling style and his fierce musical integrity have made him a favorite in Baltimore, particularly with the hard-to-please, intelligent audiences that usually crowd Shriver Hall to hear his rare combination of taste and pyrotechnics. Oliveira returns to Shriver Saturday at 8:30 p.m with the pianist Walter Ponce to play major works by Strauss and Beethoven and charming minor ones by Tomaso Antonio Vitali, Joseph Achron and Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco. Tickets are $7 (for students) and $18. For more information, call (410) 516-7164.
