Globalization, a hot-button issue known to send thousands of protesters into the streets, can also bring people into a concert hall for a totally peaceful, compelling experience. The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's first Explorer Series program of the season provides a welcome example of cultural fusion, with the help of Tan Dun. The Chinese-born composer, perhaps most widely known for his multiple award-winning film score Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, has a rare gift for bringing together East and West in his work to often astounding effect.

Those possibly eternal opposites, East and West, have met again in The First Emperor, a visually spectacular, often engaging, and not entirely successful opera by Tan Dun. This new work by the winner of an Academy Award and a Grammy for his Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon film score is a hot ticket at New York's Metropolitan Opera, which commissioned the piece a decade ago.

Henry Armitt Brown Dunning Jr., retired vice president of Hynson, Westcott and Dunning and a champion archer, died Sunday of multiple organ failure at Greater Baltimore Medical Center. He was 90 and lived at the Brightwood retirement community in Lutherville. Mr. Dunning, a former longtime resident of Riderwood who was known as Brown, headed the chemistry department of Hynson, Westcott and Dunning, a former Baltimore pharmaceutical manufacturer, from 1934 until he retired in 1972. His father, Henry Armitt Brown Dunning Sr., was one of the founders and later chairman of the board of the company, which was established in 1889 and moved in 1922 to its landmark headquarters building at the southeast corner of Charles and Chase streets, near the Belvedere Hotel.

Not the Civil War but its Reconstruction aftermath rumbles on as the bloodiest battleground for American historians. In sheer numbers, there is nothing to compare with the continuing avalanche of war buff books on every brigade, every skirmish, every general in the North-South conflict. But these remain details about outcomes already known. What makes Reconstruction history so contentious, ideological and ever changing is its relevance, year after year, to the ferment of race relations in American society.

HAGERSTOWN -- Until three weeks ago, the last time June E. Dunning had been in the hospital was in 1951, when she gave birth to her daughter, Corinne. That changed Sept. 2 after Dunning, 86, ate spinach from a bag and became severely ill. She entered a hospital for the first time in her daughter's memory. She died battling an E. coli infection 11 days later. Yesterday, standing in the living room of the Hagerstown house she shared with her mother, Corinne Swartz said that while evidence might never prove conclusively that Dunning was killed by the strain of bacteria that has sickened people nationwide in recent weeks, her family believes that her death was caused by eating contaminated spinach.

Of all the mind-boggling ideas that exploded during the 20th century, those about music by John Cage rank among the most provocative - and encouraging. "Until I die there will be sounds," he wrote in 1961. "And they will continue following after my death. One need not fear about the future of music." Cage heard music everywhere and in everything. A lot of folks won't ever be able to go that far, but those who gathered at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall Monday night got a jolting reminder of his philosophy from remarkable Chinese composer Tan Dun and the New York-based Eos Orchestra.
