Three British composers

CLASSICAL MUSIC

February 08, 1996|By Stephen Wigler

It's hard to think of programs as intelligent as those of the Concert Artists of Baltimore and their music director, Edward Polochick.

The first half of their program Saturday will juxtapose works by three linked generations of British composers. The centerpiece, Benjamin Britten's a capella "Hymn to St. Cecilia," will be preceded by the Suite for String Orchestra written by his teacher, Frank Bridge.

The Britten will be followed by two a capella songs by Bridge's teacher, Charles Stanford.

Tchaikovsky's "Rococo Variations" and Haydn's Symphony No. 104 complete the program.

The concert is 8 p.m. Saturday in LeClerc Hall at the College of Notre Dame. Admission is $20; $14 for seniors; $5 for full-time students; and free to children. For more information or tickets, call (410) 764-7371.
