Violist Kim Kashkashian performs at Peabody

Violist Kim Kashkashian is one of the most passionate musicians and one of the few people who has ever been able to give her neglected instrument star status. The Peabody Conservatory alumna will perform Tuesday at 8:15 p.m. in Friedberg Hall with another Peabody alumnus, the talented pianist Charles Abramovic. Their beautiful program will include Brahms' Sonata in E-flat, Britten's "Lachrymae," Falla's "Suite Populaire" and Penderecki's "Cadenza for Solo Viola." Tickets are $10, and $5 for students and senior citizens. Call (410) 659-8124. Mahler enthusiasts may get enough this time Mahler enthusiasts can never get enough of the composer's huge Symphony No. 3, a work that includes not merely the whole world but perhaps several galaxies as well. In memory of its generous benefactor, Ruth Rosenberg, the Peabody Conservatory will present two performances of this masterpiece -- Thursday and Friday at 8:15 p.m. in Friedberg Hall. The forces that will be under conductor Hajime Teri Murai's command will include the Peabody Symphony Orchestra, the Peabody Chorus, the Peabody Children's Chorus and the Maryland Children's Singers. The soprano soloist will be Marianna Busching. Tickets are $10; $5 for students and senior citizens. Call (410) 659-8124.

Stephen Wigler Two and a half years ago three Japanese sculptors came to Baltimore and began carving in wood, at the Maryland Institute, College of Art, the largest work of its kind in the world: the 33-foot-tall, 7-ton Fudo Myoh-Oh figure of the Cosmic Buddha. At long last it's finished, and soon will be sent to its new owner, the Becton Dickinson Corp. in Franklin Lakes, N.J.

But before it goes, there will be a public farewell celebration at the sculptors' studio at the Mount Royal Station building Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. The Fudo will be seen assembled and newly painted for the first and only time here, after which it will be disassembled for shipping. Visitors will be able to write their wishes on paper to go in a box placed in the sculpture. The Mount Royal Station building is at Cathedral Street and Mount Royal Avenue. Call (410) 225-2300.
