Unpronounceable pleasure

September 21, 1995|By Stephen Wigler

Stanislaw Skrowaczewski's name is not easy to pronounce (try "SKROV-a-chevvski), but the Polish-born musician has been one of the most dependable (and talented) conductors around for nearly 40 years. He's a man who rarely fails to bring something fresh to the standard repertory, and that makes one look forward to his concerts this week with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra. On Friday and Saturday at 8:15 p.m. and Sunday at 3 p.m., Skrowaczewski will lead the orchestra in Schubert's evergreen Symphony No. 8 ("Unfinished") and Tchaikovsky's poignant Symphony No. 6 ("Pathetique").

Meyerhoff Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are priced at $15-$51. For further information, call 410-783-8000.
