Music fans can choose from opposite ends of the spectrum on Tuesday

Music fans can choose from opposite ends of the spectrum on Tuesday

Usually, the most frustrating convergence of hard-to-choose musical activity occurs on Sundays around here. But this week, it's Tuesday that poses a particularly tough choice.

It turns out that concert-goers can are being faced with opposite ends of the spectrum -- baroque fare from a top-drawer, Philadelphia-based period instrument ensemble; works of our own time from a top-drawer, New York-based contemporary music ensemble.

At 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Peabody Institute, Tempesta di Mare will present a program called "Roman Nights," focusing on vocal and instrumental pieces by Handel and Scarlatti.

The soprano soloist is Clara Rottsolk. The ensemble includes Gwyn Roberts (recorder, flute), Emlyn Ngai and Karina Fox (violins), Eve Miller (cello) and Richard Stone (archlute, theorbo), with Adam Pearl at the harpsichord (he's also performing with American Opera Theater's Purcell/Dunphy double bill at Theatre Project).

Also on Tuesday night at An die Musik (discussion at 7, concert at 8), the

Evolution Contemporary Music Series presents the Baltimore debut of the International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE). The program includes world premieres by Phyllis Chen and Du Yun, along with works by Elliott Carter, Steve Reich and others.

As for me, your humble scribe is daring to take a couple days off (not completely off, since I'm writing this on the first of those 'off' days),  so I won't hear either of these most enticing events. But I hope one or more of you will let me know what you think of the concerts.
