Intriguing 'Something Old, Something New'

Critic's Choice

Classical Music

February 02, 2003|By Tim Smith

The Concert Artists of Baltimore can be counted on for intriguing programs that mix instrumental and choral music. Another one is in store this week. It's called, appropriately, "Something Old, Something New." The old includes two much-loved Bach works -- Brandenburg Concerto No. 5 and Jesu Meine Freude.

As for the new side, that's technically a little old, too, but only by date of composition; these two pieces, first performed in 1946, will be new to many listeners. Noted Dutch composer Henk Badings will be represented by his Trois Chansons Bretonnes for voices and piano, important Swiss composer Frank Martin by his Petite Symphonie Concertante for harp, harpsichord, piano and strings. Edward Polochick will conduct (from the keyboard in the Brandenburg).

The performance is at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Gordon Center for Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., Owings Mills. Tickets are $18 to $25; $5 and $8 for students. Call 410-625-3525.
