The winds of change have brought calm seas and prosperous voyages to the Annapolis Symphony over the past few seasons. The most significant addition has been conductor Leslie Dunner, who is in his third year at the ASO helm. Under his baton, the artistic fortunes of the local orchestra have done nothing but climb. Instrumentally speaking, the most valuable player added to the orchestra in recent years could be Fatma Daglar, who has held the ASO's principal oboe chair since 1997. Daglar, who began studying her instrument as a high school student in her native Istanbul, Turkey, will take the solo spotlight at Maryland Hall this weekend.

There isn't an original idea in Lowell Liebermann's Flute Concerto.This piece -- which was commissioned a few years ago by the flutist James Galway and was performed by him last night in Meyerhoff Hall with David Zinman and the Baltimore Symphony -- begins as if it was Prokofiev's First Violin Concerto. That dreamy, lyrical opening is followed by a section reminiscent of Rachmaninov's "Symphonic Dances" that in turn is followed by something that sounds like the music John Williams wrote for "Star Wars," which leads into a motorythmic Shostakovich-like passage that drops the listener into another dreamy section reminiscent of Williams' film score for "E.T."

Yesterday evening's Baltimore Symphony program, which was conducted by Daniel Hege, was primarily designed to provide opportunities for members of the orchestra to shine as soloists.In Vivaldi's Flute Concerto in D Major (Opus 10, No. 3), principal flutist Emily Skala produced a beautifully refined and cool pianissimo tone whenever such was called for and provided evidence of her virtuosity in the fast movements. Skala is more than a very good musician, however. In her dignified way -- she has unimpeachable musical taste -- she's a genuine charmer.

The coming concert season will be the Annapolis Symphony's 45th anniversary year, as well as its first full season under the baton of its new music director, Jose-Luis Novo, the Spanish maestro chosen by the orchestra's search committee last spring after a two-year search. In his inaugural season, Novo will be on the Maryland Hall podium for four of the five pairs of subscription concerts, with a program of Samuel Barber, Edouard Lalo and Sergei Rachmaninoff conducted in March by Daniel Hege, conductor of the Syracuse Symphony.

Violinist Diane Duraffourg, a 24-year-old Peabody Conservatory student showing passion in playing Bela Bartok's "Violin Concerto No. 2" but a veteran's coolness when her fiddle became untuned in the middle of her playing, walked away with the two big prizes last night in the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's first soloist competition.Duraffourg won the $2000 first prize given in memory of the late Judge Joseph Sherbow by Mrs. Sara Sherbow. But she also won the important invitation by BSO music director David Zinman, awarded at his discretion, to play a concerto with the orchestra.

When board members of the Columbia Orchestra hired Jason Love to conduct the ensemble two years ago, they knew they were getting one of the area's strongest proponents of contemporary music. Love's extensive experience with the avant-garde paid off handsomely Saturday evening when the orchestra presented American composer John Corigliano's "Pied Piper Fantasy" as the centerpiece of its spring concert at Howard Community College's Smith Theatre. Composed for James Galway, the Irish flutist and box office superstar, the "Pied Piper" is a flute concerto crammed full of dissonant, highly pictorial musical effects.

David Zinman has hit upon an idea that seemed last night to score a big hit in Meyerhoff Hall. With James Galway, the superstar flutist, he imported the laid-back, off-the-wall atmosphere of his Saturday morning Casual Concerts to the evening ones.This meant that Zinman used a format a little like that of the "Tonight Show" and "Late Night with David Letterman." There were a lot of jokes -- when Galway was asked whether he kept in shape, he said, "I buy a whole lot of beer and watch girls do aerobics on TV" -- and there was a lot of talking to the audience.
