After the intensity of Leonard Bernstein's Mass, the provocative work that occupied the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra for the past two weeks and garnered glowing notices from Washington to New York, last night's comfort-food program must have provided a welcome return to normality. Led by an exceptional guest conductor, Ludovic Morlot, the musicians sounded cohesive and dynamic as they addressed three repertoire standards in a less-than-filled Meyerhoff Symphony Hall. To start, there was a fun, if unintentional, nod to Halloween - The Sorcerer's Apprentice, by Paul Dukas.

Long before the French developed a distaste for American influences on their culture, they took a dim view of things German. Starting early in the 19th century, composers revealed a particular penchant for breaking away from rules of harmony and expectations about melody or structure, as codified by Bach and his artistic descendants. No note of Berlioz or Debussy could ever be thought of as Germanic. In another winning program of the Shriver Hall Concert Series, which is having a remarkably strong season, two French ensembles shared the stage Sunday evening to celebrate this wonderfully stubborn streak of national pride.

The Baltimore Symphony Orchestra opened its concert Friday night at Meyerhoff Symphony Hall with the sprightly and often booming works of two composers, Samuel Coleridge-Taylor and George Gershwin, who created a number of pieces with some fanfare before their early deaths at ages 37 and 38 respectively.Coleridge-Taylor's 13-minute Bamboula, partly based on a West Indian dance, was performed under Associate Conductor Chosei Komatsu in a lively show of repeated themes. The composer, the son of a Sierra Leone doctor and an English nurse, was popular in the early 1900s.

It is peculiar that so "popular" a work as the Franck D Minor Symphony can be so difficult to listen to. (One listener dismisses it airily as one of the most repellent works in the symphonic repertory.) The reason -- at least for listeners nowadays -- is that organ music is so much less in the ear of the public than it was in the heyday of the Franck's greatest popularity, which faded in the years leading up to World War II.For the Franck, which occupied the second half of the Baltimore Symphony program conducted by Chosei Komatsu last night in Meyerhoff Hall, sounds almost exactly like an organ piece.

This review appeared in late editions of yesterday's Sun.The featured conductor for Thursday night's Baltimore Symphony concert in Meyerhoff Hall was the celebrated Finnish conductor, Paavo Berglund.On a program that included Sibelius' "Pohjola's Daughter" and Franck's Symphony in D Minor, Berglund was scheduled to join pianist Alicia de Larrocha in a performance of Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C Major (K. 467).But the conductor had expected to accompany the Spanish pianist in Concerto No. 27. When he learned otherwise two weeks ago, he told the orchestra's management he did not have sufficient time to prepare Concerto No. 21.The day was saved by the orchestra's resident conductor, Daniel Hege, who stepped in to give de Larrocha a superb accompaniment in K. 467. He may very well have proved a better collaborator for the pianist than Berglund.

The consuming interest in the Washington area Thursday night was the return of baseball to the nation's capital, but that didn't seem to keep anyone away from the Music Center at Strathmore, where a young violinist hit one out of the park in the first inning and the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra scored runs on its own in the second. The program, which has two more, well-worth-catching performances this weekend at the BSO's home plate (all right, I'll stop), revels in the melodic wealth and imaginative instrumental coloring of 1880s French romanticism.

You've heard that those who can, do; and those who can't, teach. Well, sometimes, those who can, do - and teach, too. Victor Danchenko, for example. The Russian-born pedagogue, a veteran faculty member at two leading conservatories, Curtis and Peabody, gave an instructive recital Tuesday night at An die Musik LIVE. He demonstrated not just the calm authority you would expect from a professor and a competition-winning Moscow Conservatory graduate, but an unabashedly old-fashioned, romantic style.

WASHINGTON - Rend al-Rahim Francke, an Iraqi-American and Washington representative for the Iraqi Governing Council, is well known in the capital as a low-key but passionate advocate for democracy in her homeland. Born in Baghdad, she left Iraq in the 1970s and earned degrees at Cambridge University and the Sorbonne. As founder and executive director of the Iraq Foundation, a research organization, she stayed outside the factional disputes of Iraqi opposition figures. She was interviewed recently by Mark Matthews of The Sun's Washington bureau.
