A couple of firsts


January 15, 1998|By Stephen Wigler

The Baltimore Symphony will offer two important debuts this week. In the last 20 years, the Englishman Jeffrey Tate has become one of the world's most highly regarded (and recorded) conductors, and his presence on the podium today and tomorrow at 8 p.m. and Saturday at 11 a.m. is a real coup for the orchestra. Tate's soloist is the young German pianist Lars Vogt, whose recordings of music of the Classical and early Romantic eras have garnered deserved praise. The program for the first two concerts includes Elgar's "Introduction and Allegro," Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 14 in E-flat (K. 449) and Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 3 ("Scottish"). Saturday's program includes the Mozart and Mendelssohn works.

Performances will take place at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets for tonight and tomorrow's performances are $20-$53. Tickets for Saturday's performances are $13-$28. For more information or to purchase tickets, call 410-783-8000.
