BSO takes sojourn with Mahler, Adams

Music Review

May 05, 2007|By Tim Smith | Tim Smith,sun music critic

If there's anyone left who doesn't yet realize that things are changing - big time - at the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, exposure to this week's concerts would drive that point home. Marin Alsop, the BSO's intrepid music director designate, is on the podium for a program that practically shouts business-as-anything-but-usual.

To balance a hefty war horse, Nicolai Rimsky-Korsakov's Scheherazade, Alsop chose two works new to the ensemble's repertoire, a kind of orchestral nocturne by Gustav Mahler and a kind of mind-bending musical trip by John Adams.

The BSO performs at 11 a.m. today at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall, 1212 Cathedral St. For tickets, call 410-883-8000 or go to
