Two Brahms trios sandwiching an early Schoenberg chamber symphony would make for a strange night of chamber music without the versatile bow of Yo-Yo Ma, but the renowned megacellist should be able to coax the beauty out of the latter while infusing some urgency into the former. Ma leads a quintet comprised of such fellow luminaries as pianist Emanuel Ax, clarinetist Paul Meyer, violinist Pamela Frank, and flutist/broadcast personality Eugene Zukerman. Tonight at 8:30 p.m. at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall. $38-49. (202) 467-4600. (Bill Gifford)
