SOUTH MOUNTAIN CONCERTS The BSO has returned home, but this venerable chamber music series extends the Berkshires summer classical offerings into October. First up is the veteran Kalichstein-Laredo-Robinson Trio, presenting music by Beethoven, Schumann, and Mendelssohn. Sept. 5, 3 p.m. $35. South Mountain Concert Hall, Pittsfield. 413 442-2106,

FENWICK SMITH The flutist with colleagues Sarah Bob (piano) and Aaron Trant (percussion) takes on an iconic late Morton Feldman work from 1983 titled “Crippled Symmetry.’’ This is long, slow, quiet music, lasting some 90 minutes, like a Rothko painting in sound. Sept. 12, 3 p.m. Free. Jordan Hall, New England Conservatory. 617- 585-1260,
