Robert Moody, introduced as the last of the Annapolis Symphony Orchestra's guest conductors for the season, faced a rather daunting challenge after the intermission of a concert last weekend. Shortly after starting the third movement - the adagio - of Rachmaninoff's Symphony No. 2 in E Minor, the lights went out in Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, leaving the audience and musicians in darkness for seven minutes. Maestro Moody more than coped. He joked with the audience about the lights being dimmed to enhance the piece's romantic mood.

When Johannes Brahms set about composing a requiem to commemorate his mother, he aimed for something that was more about comforting than crying, more about coming to terms than fretting about whatever judgment might await the dead. The result, "Ein Deutsches Requiem" ("A German Requiem"), is one of the glories of the choral repertoire, one of Brahms' most personal and affecting pieces. Melinda O'Neal, in her final concert as artistic director of the Handel Choir of Baltimore, conducted an impressive performance of the Requiem Sunday afternoon that communicated its bittersweet lyricism and the ingenious cohesion of its architectural shape.

Confirmed cable cruisers probably have been captured in their ceaseless channel changing by the program "Beyond 2000." On the basic-cable Discovery Channel numerous times during the week (including 6 p.m. weekdays), the show is a fascinating exploration of new and future technology, oddly enhanced by the obviously Australian accents of its hosts.Beginning tonight, however, an intriguing new domestic series of somewhat similar intent joins the Down Under import (which officials of the Maryland-based Discovery Channel say is one of its most popular programs)
