Twin delights

Music can carry us in all kinds of different directions. Just look at the freewheeling concerts ahead this week courtesy of the University at Buffalo's Music Department.

At 8 p.m. Tuesday, the always exciting Slee Sinfonietta, led by Magnus Martensson, is performing Gustav Mahler's wistful, beautiful "Songs of a Wayfarer," Arvo Part's "Fratres" and Gunther Schuller's "A Bouquet for Collage." Admission is $12.

At 8 p.m. Wednesday, the excellent "HEARD on Wednesdays" faculty music series presents "Of Love and Money: A Taxing Program." The theme is love, money and the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. On the program are Johann Sebastian Bach's "Let My Heart Be the Coin," from Cantata 163; Hanns Eisler's "There's Nothing Quite Like Money"; and a sonata by Elliott Carter. Ludwig van Beethoven's "Variations on a Theme" from "The Magic Flute" will pay tribute to Mozart, as will a new work by UB cellist Jonathan Golove called "Mozart in Mirrorshades." Admission is $5.

The concerts take place at Lippes Hall, located in Slee Hall on UB's North Campus. For information, call 645-2921.
