Contemporary music concerts are best when they represent 20th century composers in both their historical breadth and their aesthetic diversity. The performing ensemble Polaris, which performed last night at the Baltimore Museum of Art, was successful on both counts.Recent works such as Meyer Kupferman's "Five Flings" (1980) took their place alongside two sturdy "classics" of modernism, John Cage's Amores (1943) and Luciano Berio's "Circles" (1960).The Amores was written during the period of Mr. Cage's heavy involvement with percussion and with the "prepared piano" -- a grand piano fitted with screws, pieces of rubber and other materials that transformed its characteristic sound into one evocative of a Balinese gamelan ensemble.
