Contemporary keyboard

The lowdown -- Marilyn Nonken, a much-admired pianist who has built her career by championing contemporary music, has put together a fascinating program for her recital tomorrow. She'll play works by the dean of modern American composers, Milton Babbitt, as well as pieces by Jason Eckardt and Salvatore Martirano (a piece tantalizingly called Cocktail Music).

If you go -- The recital is at 8 p.m. Thursday in the Fine Arts Recital Hall at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County, 1000 Hilltop Circle. Admission is free. For more information, call 410-455-2787.Appealing Schumann

The lowdown -- Robert Schumann ended up losing his mind, but not before leaving us some very thoughtful, extraordinarily appealing music. The Peabody Trio will welcome some guest artists -- pianist Katherine Jacobson, violinist Sonya Chung and horn player Peter Landgren -- to present a well-balanced, all-Schumann program.

If you go -- The concert is at 8 p.m. Tuesday at Peabody Conservatory, 17 E. Mount Vernon Place. Tickets are $18, $10 seniors, $8 students. Call 410-659-8100, ext. 2.
