BSO, Alsop show their romantic side

Music Review

June 16, 2007|By Tim Smith | Tim Smith,sun music critic

Anyone allergic to romanticism in music may want to avoid the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's season finale, because a severe reaction could occur, but everyone else should find the experience rewarding.

There are works by two hearty romantics from the 19th century, Brahms and Dvorak, and one from the 20th, Erich Wolfgang Korngold, who could give them - anyone, really - a run for their money in the melody department. Lyricism, passion and poetic impulses run freely through the program.

If you go The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra performs at 8 tonight at the Music Center at Strathmore, 3 p.m. tomorrow at the Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. Tickets $25-$78. Call 410-783-8000 or go to
