Chamber charm

Chamber Music on Elmwood is going for Baroque for this Sunday's concert. The annual festival, masterminded by Buffalo Philharmonic Orchestra Assistant Concertmaster Ansgarius Aylward, is filling Elmwood Avenue with the sounds of Handel and Telemann, followed by Robert Schumann.

Handel's Sonata for Flute and Harpsichord in A Minor, Op. 1, No. 4, will feature flutist Natalie Scanio and harpsichordist Jane Cary. Telemann's Quartet in D Minor, "Tafelmusik II," follows, played by Scanio, Cary and violinists Aylward and Jacqueline Galluzzo.

The evening ends with Schumann's exquisite Piano Quintet in E Flat. Aylward and Galluzzo will be joined in this masterpiece by Valerie Heywood, the BPO's principal violist, and Roman Mekinulov, the orchestra's principal cellist. The distinguished pianist Phyllis East rounds out the all-star team.

The concert takes place at 7 p.m. Sunday in the lovely and historic Unitarian Universalist Church (695 Elmwood Ave.). Tickets are $20 and available at the door. For more info, call 883-3150.
