An overdue toast to Baltimore's Glass

BSO compensates for its neglect with pleasing sampler of works

Music review

February 24, 2007|By Tim Smith | Tim Smith,Sun music critic

Reactions to the dogged atonality that came to dominate 20th-century music took several forms -- beyond the screams of fast-fleeing concertgoers, that is.

A few brave composers embraced neo-romanticism, for example, determined to prove the lasting value of good, old-fashioned tunes and comfortable harmonic progressions.

The all-Glass Explorer Series will be performed at 8 tonight and 3 p.m. tomorrow by the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. Tickets are $25-$78. Call 410-783-8000 or go to baltimoresymphony.org.
