A selection of sounds for Sunday

Critic's Choice: Classical Music

October 28, 2001|By Tim Smith

If it's Sunday, there must be music being made somewhere.

You can start with a piano recital by Andrea Sokol-Albert, a faculty member of Texas Lutheran University, in her Baltimore debut. Her wide-ranging program includes works by Beethoven, Liszt, Faure, Ginastera and important Israeli composer Ben-Zion Orgad.

The recital, presented by the Gordon Trust, will be at 3 p.m. today at Temple Oheb Shalom, 7310 Park Heights Ave. Admission is free. For more information, call 410-358-0105.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's latest program, with dynamic Russian conductor Yakov Kriezberg, gets its final airing -- Mendelssohn's Scottish Symphony and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 3 (with brilliant Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes) -- at 3 p.m. today at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $26 to $68. Call 410-783-8000.

The cliche "all in the family" rarely fits as snugly as it does the Ying Quartet. Four siblings from Chicago founded the quartet nearly a decade ago and quickly rose to the front ranks of the chamber music scene.

To open its 36th season, Baltimore's premier music presenter, the Shriver Hall Concert Series, will offer the Ying Quartet in works by Mozart and Mendelssohn. The ensemble also will be joined by veteran pianist Menahem Pressler of Beaux Arts Trio fame for a performance of Dvorak's irresistible A major Piano Quintet.

The concert is at 5:30 today at Shriver Hall, Johns Hopkins University, 3400 N. Charles St. Tickets are $28 ($14 for students). Call 410-516-7164.
