Concert Artists' finale


May 09, 2002|By Tim Smith

Some folks look down their noses at Beethoven's Triple Concerto, considering it inferior to the composer's five incomparable piano concertos and single, incandescent one for violin. But distinguished performers have a way of making the Triple Concerto sound like a top-drawer work for violin, cello, piano and orchestra that abounds in tunefulness and brilliance.

That's likely to be the result at the season-finale production of the Concert Artists of Baltimore, which includes the Triple Concerto with a strong lineup of soloists - Ann Schein, an invariably imaginative pianist and valued member of Peabody's faculty; Earl Carlyss, the noted violinist who was in the famed Juilliard String Quartet for 20 years (and also happens to be Schein's husband); and Thomas Kraines, a fine cellist who has also taught at Peabody.

Edward Polochick will conduct the program, which also offers Vaughan Williams' sumptuous Fantasia on a Theme of Thomas Tallis and English a cappella choral music.

The concert is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynbrook Ave., Owings Mills. Tickets are $23, $17 for seniors, $5 for students, free for ages 8 to 18. Call 410-625-3525.
