The British composer John Tavener's conversion in 1977 to the Russian Orthodox Church had profound consequences for his music, which began to take on altogether more transcendental and austere qualities. Although Tavener is Western-trained, in some respects he now most resembles such Eastern European "minimalists" as Henryk Gorecki and Alfred Schnittke.His best-known work, "The Protecting Veil," was composed in 1987 at the suggestion of the brilliant, young British cellist Steven Isserlis that Tavener write a piece for cello and strings.

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma returned to Meyerhoff Hall last night for a reprise of the concerto the late Stephen Albert wrote for him three years ago.Albert, who died in an automobile crash in December, was one of our best and most honest composers. Though there are nods in the directions of other pieces from other times -- late Romantic concertos in the first and third movements, a little Shostakovich in the skittish second movement and some middle-period Stravinsky in the final one -- there is not a cheap note in this piece.

Editor: As a long time resident of Harford County, I am proud of the beautiful parks and outdoor amenities that are available to the public. I enjoy hiking in the Rocks, biking with my children, play dates at Annie's Playground and running with my dog, Molly, on the Ma and Pa Trail. As spring approaches, I am excited to get outside every day that I can and enjoy all that Harford County has to offer. However, year after year, I am hugely disappointed in the maintenance and upkeep of one of Harford County's treasures" the Ma & Pa Trail.

Editor: Harford County government has been struggling for nearly 10 years now to complete the popular Ma and Pa Trail, designed for hikers and bikers. The Bel Air and Forest Hill sections have a two-mile gap in between with no trail. The completion has been held up entirely because one property owner will not sell a narrow strip along the back of his property for the trail right of way. He owns four acres and the needed land is about three tenths of an acre, only 7 percent of his property.
