Art, music produce some colorful sounds

Music Review

May 13, 2006|By TIM SMITH | TIM SMITH,SUN MUSIC CRITIC

One of the most frequently used words when talking about music is a visual term -- color. I'm sure I overuse it, but it's unavoidable. Sounds really can suggest tints, really do correspond to hues.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's final Explorer Series program of the season, inspired by the illustrated book Jazz by Henri Matisse, is all about that eye-ear relationship. The narration/slide show that goes along with the presentation is often gray, but the music-making is filled with swathes and swirls of color.

BSO and "The `Jazz' of Matisse" 8 tonight, 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets $25-$75. Call 410-783-8000 or visit baltimoresymphony.org.
