BSO salutes Grieg and Scandinavia

The lowdown -- Fresh from a successful trip to Europe, the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra heads to Scandinavia this week - without leaving Maryland. In a salute to Norway's best-loved composer, Edvard Grieg, the BSO welcomes two guest artists from that country: conductor Bjarte Engeset and pianist Havard Gimse, both making their local debuts. The all-Grieg program includes the alternately stormy and lyrical Piano Concerto in A major, one of the most popular of all classical pieces, and selections from incidental music the composer wrote for a production of Henrik Ibsen's play Peer Gynt, including the wildly atmospheric "In the Hall of the Mountain King" and beguiling "Anitra's Dance."

If you go -- The BSO performs at 8 p.m. today at the Music Center at Strathmore, 5301 Tuckerman Lane, North Bethesda; and 8 p.m. tomorrow and Saturday, and 3 p.m. Sunday at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $43 to $78 at Strathmore; $25 to $75 at Meyerhoff. Call 410-783-8000.

Babes' revue

The lowdown -- The musicians of Four Bitchin' Babes present a new program called Hormonal Imbalance - A Mood Swinging Musical Revue on Saturday night. Sally Fingerett, Debi Smith, Nancy Moran and Deirdre Flint use their harmonic sounds to examine the issues women face, including diets, inadequate pay, balancing family and job, and annoyingly cut swimwear.

If you go -- The show is at the Gordon Center for the Performing Arts, 3506 Gwynnbrook Ave., Owings Mills, Saturday at 8 p.m. Tickets are $22. Call 410-356-7469 or visit gordon center.com.
