Richard Goode plays sonatas in recital today

Familiarity does not breed contempt where Richard Goode is concerned. This wonderful pianist's annual appearances in the Candlelight Concert series at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre are highlights of the music season in the Baltimore-Washington area. His recital at 3 p.m. today, the first in this season's Candlelight series, should be outstanding even by Goode's standards. His recording of the Beethoven sonata cycle for the Nonesuch label is a landmark, and this afternoon's recital consists entirely of Beethoven sonatas, including the titanic "Appasssionata." Tickets, available at the door, are $8-$18. For more information, call (410) 715-0034. John Guare's fascinating social comedy, "Six Degrees of Separation," will make its Baltimore debut at Fell's Point Corner Theatre, 251 S. Ann St., on Friday . The play is based on the real-life story of a con artist who insinuated himself into the lives of several wealthy, well-meaning New Yorkers by pretending to be Sidney Poitier's son.

Fell's Point Corner's production is directed by Steve Goldklang and features a cast headed by Martin Ruof, Trisha Blackburn, Harry Turner and Jim Dockery. Show times are 8 p.m. Fridays and Saturdays, and 2 p.m. Sundays, through Oct. 30. Tickets are

$10. For more information call (410) 276-7837.
