Herbig's Beethoven

March 28, 1996|By Stephen Wigler

Here's an index to how much the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra respects Gunther Herbig: He's the only conductor, aside from BSO music director David Zinman, who's permitted to lead the orchestra in Beethoven symphonies.

The German-born conductor will conduct the mightiest and last of the nine symphonies tonight and tomorrow night in Meyerhoff Hall. To open the program, cello soloist Carter Brey will join Herbig and the BSO in Haydn's Concerto in C.

The concert is tonight and tomorrow night at 8: 15 at the Meyerhoff, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $18 to $51. Call (410) 783-8000.
