Sunday: Outstandingly imaginative programming is a hallmark of the chamber music concerts hosted regularly by Minnesota Orchestra soloists. Sunday's concert is bookended by Rossini's affable duo for the unusual combination of cello and double bass, and Mozart's "Kegelstatt" Trio, so-called because the composer allegedly wrote it while playing a form of bowling called skittles ("kegelstatt" is German for bowling alley). In between are two substantial slices of modernism: Hindemith's somber Sonata for Trumpet and Piano and American composer Ned Rorem's Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano. No fewer than nine musicians share the playing duties, promising a richly varied and rewarding listening experience. (7 p.m. Sun., July 26, Orchestra Hall, Mpls. $12-$25, 612-371-5656,
