There were More cars than Ever before More cameras More people wanting to hear and see. I suspect Many came with Casals in mind for he conducted the concluding piece of each of the three concerts Clear and sure in the Way he communicated the beat and pulse of Bach to the chamber orchestra under his command though perhaps conducting less than in past years As he allowed the musicians to carry Forward the momentum of the music once it got established. It is remarkable that a Man who will be 90 in december can maintain and project the vigor called for in conducting. But no less remarkable is the consistent vigor and freshness of the other musicians Young and old All mixed in together who performed various works during the course of the weekend. Several Are memorable for the spirit with which they were played. A of for instance Jaime Laredo violin and Gerald Apple Man cello joined forces with a pianistic Veteran or. Horszowski in a passionate performance of Mendelssohn s Trio in c minor sunday afternoon. A More full throated rendering of its romantic melodies a More sensitive interplay of three instrumental voices one could hardly have asked for. Gasps of delighted incredulity came from an audience astounded to hear such Lovely sound. A of something of the same be wonder ment Hung Over saturday nights audience As they listened to the colourful modulating lines of Brahms sonata in a Flat major for clarinet and piano. Harold Wrights clarinet produced Lucid Clear tones without any hint of Effort on the part of the performer. More Effort of a fiery Youthful sort was evident in the forceful though not for a moment forced piano playing of Murray Perahia a Young Man of about 20 who won the Kosciusko Competition last year and made his debut at Carnegie recital Hall last january. His name will surely be heard As time goes on and his playing has a sweeping Quality which Calls out to be heard.

This quintet also introduced the audience to another newcomer Hiroko Yajima a 19-year-old japanese girl now studying at Juilliard who played first violin to Alexander Schneider a second a of vocal music was featured on the opening program most strikingly in the form of Purcell a elegy Sung by Benita Valente and Ilona Kombrink in memory of Queen Elisabeth of Belgium who was a fervent supporter of chamber music and who visited the Marlboro festival several years ago. And on each of these three successive concerts the familiar notes of Baches suites nos. I amp 2 and the Brandenburg no. 3 and the by now familiar sight of Casals conducting them from a chair on the podium provided a fitting moving conclusion for each program. Casals interpretation always catches the spirit of these works with their sweep their lilt their quiet moments their stately ones. The stresses he evokes from an orchestra which gathers Only for the performance in question and does not play As a tightly knit polished unit makes the music come alive with a Joyful almost earthy Quality that evades Many a professional orchestra. Casals cares As do the shirt sleeved performers and the audience comes away caring. A of there will be Only two concerts next weekend on saturday night and sunday afternoon with Casals conducting at each.
