Misha Dichter performs frequently in Baltimore -- in fact, he's playing Beethoven's "Emperor Concerto" July 26 with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra in Meyerhoff Hall in the BSO's Summer MusicFest series. But it's been more than 10 years since this pianist, whose international career began three decades ago when he won the silver medal in the 1966 Tchaikovsky Competition, was last heard in a solo recital in these parts. That changes Sunday evening in Tawes Theatre on the campus of the University of Maryland College Park.

Dichter, who will give the first recital in the International Piano Festival associated with the university's William Kapell Competition, will perform Beethoven (Sonata Nos. 18 in E-Flat and 32 in C minor), Brahms (the 16 Waltzes, opus 39) and Liszt (Hungarian Rhapsodies Nos. 3, 11 and 15).

The concert is Sunday at 8: 30 p.m. Tickets are $20 general admission, $16 for seniors and $12 for students. For tickets or more information, call the Tawes Theatre box office, (301) 405-6538.
