Baroque flute



Very few people play the flute music of the 17th and 18th century as well as Robert Willoughby. This distinguished flutist will perform with the members of Pro Musica Rara tomorrow at 3:30 p.m. at the Baltimore Museum of Art. It's a program that baroque music fanciers won't want to miss: works by such well-known masters as Telemann and K.P.E. Bach and by less celebrated, although fascinating, composers such as as Johann Ernst Galliard and Johann Jakob Frohberger. Tickets are $12, $10 for BMA members and $6 for students. Call (410) 821-8730. Another big schedule change goes into effect at NBC, the nothing but confusion network. "Mad About You," with Paul Reiser and Helen Hunt, moves from Wednesdays to Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. (WMAR Channel 2). Reiser, one of the "Diner" guys in Barry Levinson's movie, is again wonderfully neurotic in tonight's episode about secrets that people bring to relationships. "Mad About You" may be TV's smartest series on relationships since "thirtysomething." Let's hope it doesn't get lost on this low-viewership night.

"Sommersby" is a big, romantic remake of "The Return of Martin Guerre," about a man who comes back from the war so changed he might not be the same guy. In the original, it was the Hundred Years War, but now it's the American Civil War. Richard Gere is the mysterious Jack Sommersby, returning to Jodie Foster. The Gere-Foster chemistry is terrific and the movie has a sense of romantic mystery to it that rarely makes it to an American screen these days. It fades toward the end, but it's nice to see a lot of glorious costumes. PG-13. ***
