The personal drama came in the Korngold Violin Concerto, but the musical drama in the Shostakovich Symphony No. 10 overwhelmed even that. The Philadelphia Orchestra, playing a rare concert under the baton of Gerard Schwarz Friday, gave its audience a double dose of involvement. In the Korngold, violinist Elmar Oliveira was flying through the cascades of notes when he broke a string. Without pause, he gave his violin to William dePasquale and picked up the concertmaster's, scarcely missing a note.

It was a double feast of duos at the Keswick Monday night, but make no mistake: pianist Kenny Barron had a monster night of poetic improvisations. In the second duo of this Mellon PSFS event, Barron riffed and jousted with alto saxophonist Frank Morgan, who's capable of matching Barron in the poetry department. Morgan was up to his task on the last number, a fierce version of '"Round Midnight" that seemed to shimmy the Keswick's floorboards. But he seemed oddly disconnected for much of their 50-minute concert.

Putting together two bold flavors of hip-hop - courtesy of Common and Q-Tip - is like mixing lemon with lime on a summer day. There's similarity to be found in their smart flows. There's individual tartness and texture to differentiate the zest. That was the taste sensation that splashed the Electric Factory on Tuesday night. Common was stoic, soulful and politicized - occasionally rigid, always righteous. Even when bounding across the stage during the salacious"Go," Common was cucumber cool, as if playfulness wasn't exactly second nature to him. A medley of old rap hits ("Just a Friend," "Greatest Man Alive")

Mike Demontigny, 28, drove 6? hours from Boston with his girlfriend to watch the Celtics, he hoped, take the Sixers to the brink of elimination. Was he fired up by the Sixers-Celtics rivalry? "I really don't think it's a rivalry," Demontigny said as he sat parked near the Wells Fargo Center with Paige Rawlins, 26. Maybe there was a rivalry in the 1980s, when Julius Erving punched Larry Bird, but there hasn't been a true one since, he said. Fans on both sides might react differently depending on the outcome of the game and the amount of alcohol imbibed.

Tonight, four men will get together to do something they have done hundreds of times: watch horror movies. But tonight they will do it at Mount Ephraim's Harwan Theatre with about 200 other people. The friends, three from Audubon and one from Philadelphia, showed their first horror-film double features at the single-screen house two years ago. "The four of us get together and watch horror films on video," said Dan Fraga, 26, a teacher at Haddon Heights High School. "Every Halloween we used to mope and wonder why no one shows horror films on the big screen anymore.

Towards the end of "Freaky in the Club," one of the more effectively funky paeans to the pleasures of booty on R. Kelly's Double Up (Jive . 1/2), the most shameless man in showbiz looks at the clock on the wall and makes note to self: "Time to have sex!" Which raises the question: Isn't it always? Just about. Oh, sure, there are times when even the world's most unrepentantly priapic R&B love man must be busy doing something other than gettin' busy. Such as the (brief)

The Flyers felt as if they were gouged and high-sticked yesterday when they learned that right winger Rick Tocchet had been suspended for nine additional games, and that center Ron Sutter would be out from four to six weeks with a broken jaw. Sutter, off to the best start of his career, was high-sticked by New York Rangers defenseman James Patrick late in the final period of Saturday's loss at the Spectrum. According to Flyers general manager Bob Clarke, the club has sent a tape of the incident to NHL executive vice president Brian O'Neill - the same man who yesterday suspended Tocchet for 10 games.

ONE THING I won't be asking for this Christmas is Monopoly. I really don't need it. I get to play SEPTAopoly and Comcastopoly every day. SEPTAopoly is especially fun when you get to sit on a bus with urine on the seat, and when you're waiting for the bus and it drives right past you without stopping. And here's the real kicker: They cry poor and threaten to cut service and raise their already ridiculously high fares. Comcastopoly is also lots of fun. It's great when you get a notice in the mail that they are raising their rates and you have no choice but to pay because they are the only cable company around.

Carlos Lawson, 26, has this fear that when he gets out of prison, he'll be a grandfather. He's probably right. If he serves the minimum sentences imposed on him yesterday by two judges for a string of robberies and shootings, his 5-year-old son will be a middle-aged man. "I'm not a killer," he told Common Pleas Judge Renee Caldwell Hughes. "I've got a 5-year-old son. I don't want to come home when he's got kids and I'll be a grandfather. I don't want to come home old. " Lawson, who escaped from a prison work-release center while completing a robbery term in 1996, got a double dose of punishment yesterday.

Light snow is a possibility in the forecast tonight, all of Saturday and early Sunday morning, with an accumulation of an inch or two possible in areas northwest of I-95, according to the National Weather Service. "It looks like more of a nuisance event than anything else," said meteorologist Joe Miketta of the National Weather Service office in Mount Holly. But not a false alarm. "We think we're going to get something out of it," he said. Light rain could fall first, starting this evening, as a cold front moves in, dropping the temperature in Philadelphia - which could reach 50 this afternoon - into the 30s overnight.

MIAMI - A big early Miami lead was wasted. Once the Heat took control again, it simply ran away from the Boston Celtics. And the NBA Finals are now three wins away for LeBron James and the Heat. James scored 32 points and grabbed 13 rebounds, Dwyane Wade scored 10 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and the Heat beat the Celtics, 93-79, on Monday night in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference Finals. Shane Battier, playing in the conference finals for the first time, scored 10 points and had 10 rebounds for the Heat, who wasted an early 11-point first-half lead before running away to break a halftime tie. Miami outrebounded the Celtics, 48-33, and blocked 11 Boston shots.

The starting point guard was the youngest player in the league last season and really hadn't run a team from that position since his high school days, which weren't all that long ago. The second overall pick struggled mightily in the position the team drafted him to play and showed more signs of being better at the spot where the team was already satisfied with who was there. The inside game was suspect, at best, on the defensive end with no real shot blocker or consistent rebounder.

Assuming that e-mails, letters and voice-mail messages have some value, it's fair to surmise that Ed Snider isn't Mr. Popularity in these parts. If his dismissive ways don't turn you off, perhaps it's the way he saunters around, appearing as if he has all the answers - with absolutely no championship hardware since the days when his hair was still brown. But if these Flyers pull off the unthinkable, recapturing a Stanley Cup once given to Philadelphia in a double dose 35 years ago, the fans can feel free to scream "We did it" all summer long.

Though she's been dead for 32 years, Maria Callas is once again among us, not in the opera house, where her legend was made, but in the theater, where one of her most literate admirers, playwright Terrence McNally, is again enlisting her to do for him what the gods of Greek antiquity did for writers in centuries past. Though Callas is always worth eulogizing (decades after her retirement in the early 1960s, she's among EMI's best-selling operatic artists), in McNally's new Golden Age, now at the Philadelphia Theatre Company's Suzanne Roberts Theatre, and his Master Class at the Media Theatre (previews begin tomorrow)

Pfizer Inc., which bought rival Wyeth last month, said yesterday that it would move "a number of functions" from Wyeth's Collegeville, Montgomery County, location as Pfizer consolidated research and development at five "hub" sites. Separately yesterday, Johnson & Johnson told Pennsylvania state officials that it would lay off 174 people at its Spring House facility as it pushed forward with 8,000 global job cuts the company announced last week. Pfizer would not immediately say how many jobs would be eliminated at Collegeville - Wyeth's long-term pharmaceutical headquarters - where it employs 3,600.
