Johann Heinrich Schmelzer may have been the first Austrian Kapellmeister in Vienna in the 17th century, but he was not about to break with Italian compositional models. His six "Unarum Fidium" sonatas are generally forthright harmonically, with much reliance on ostinatos and ground basses. Schmelzer's expressive intentions are varied, but the works all sound much the same in Holloway's playing, abidingly sweet and lyrical even in the most rapid passage work.

There are 8 million chemical compounds on Earth, yet even the most sophisticated coroner's lab tests for no more than a few hundred of them. So perhaps it should come as no surprise that when 300-pound Burbank mortician Timothy Waters died three years ago, medical examiners missed the real cause of death--poison. Waters was thought to have died from a heart attack on April 8, 1985.

Thus, they receive equal billing, although Holloway -- another of the lively scholars Britain seems to produce in bundles -- is their spokesman. Tuesday night, the three offered a survey of Italian Baroque sonatas as part of the Da Camera Society of Mount St.
