Nearly two weeks ago, Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 provided the finale to the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's splashy season-opening gala concert. The Tchaikovsky thread has carried over into the BSO's first subscription series concerts of 2009-2010; one of his greatest hits, Symphony No. 4, closes the program. Next week's lineup will end with yet another Tchaikovsky war horse, the Violin Concerto, so we've got a clear little trend going on here. (And people complained that former music director Yuri Temirkanov did too much Russian stuff.

McDonogh was the better field hockey team yesterday in its game at Centennial. And that was just the point."Everyone's main focus was to play as a team and not as individuals," said McDonogh's Kim Yeargin after the 3-0 victory. "Today was a really good showing of how we can play together."Katie Higdon scored twice and Phyllis Byrd once as sixth-ranked McDonogh (2-0) took control early and never allowed Centennial (0-1) to get untracked. McDonogh's defense -- led by Kirsten Doub, Vanvisa Attaset and Becca Johnson -- held 13th-ranked Centennial to five shots.

Two powerhouses swept through the Kennedy Center Concert Hall Thursday night - composer Jennifer Higdon and pianist Lang Lang, the featured attractions on this week's National Symphony Orchestra program. Each left a long-lasting impression. Higdon's Concerto for Orchestra, written for the Philadelphia Orchestra and premiered by that ensemble last year, is a five-movement score that easily stakes a claim as one of the most inventive and substantive additions to American music in years. Even if there are a couple of spots that seem a little long-winded, the array of sound colors never ceases to grab the ear, while the brilliant working-out of ideas never ceases to impress.
