Be ready with a pair of Prescriplion Sunglasses, Symphony had points low high By PAT ORCIIAItU Special licviewcr The Lcthbridge Symphony Orchestra Monday started will) a performance of Mozart's Overture: Die Zaubertole. On a technical level, I was very disappointed. The orches- tra were extremely nervous and seemed so intent on Hie most disciplined playing that they lacked the spirit behind tho notes. There was plenty of lightness ami detail but seemed lo be a void of dramatic ten- sion, or perhaps one sliould say Mozartean charm. There were some strange j sounds from the string especially the cellos on oc- casion. However, the woodwinds and brass section of the orchestra were extremely good. Mr. Needliarn conducted the intro- duction slower than most of his contemporaries and was faster in the main Allegro! A revelation, as he is obviously inspiring the orchestra from ils worst kind of interpre- tive rigidity. Despite the many technical difficulties resulting from a few ecentrieitics of balance, and Interpretive weakness, the orchestra retained a freshness of improvisation and an bvious enthusiasm for be music. The orchestra then went on to play Schubert's Symphony No. 8 in B Minor. I felt the performance was less than competent. My res- ervations mostly concern a lack of urgency about the music's projection. They did not seem to be completely in accord with regards to tempo and could have been more ex- ploratory in terms of fine nuances and more assertive in some places. There were many unpleasant rasps from the strings as they tended to make a loss than euphonious m n s i cal sound. There was a good deal of dia- logue among cellos and and it was here the faults were glaring. The performance was really fresh enough for schu- bert but there were some ex- cellent moments of poetic feel- ing, although moments the} tended to remain. However, a certain degree o! perfunctoriness must be for- given as some of the over-al effects were most inspiring anc the diligence involved must lie saluted. This was no mean task. The highlight of the evening was a performance of Chopin's Concerto No. 1 in R Minor I had reservations about he orc'icstra's opening contribu- tion, but those were soon for- gotten when Miss Louise Chap- man started her performance with executant power. One knew immediately she had the ability to put the (orch- estra together. Stie reacted to the music spontaniously and en- joyed herself. Miss Chapman had vitality, strong rhythm and some bbeau- tifully controlled cant abile playing. Although Ihe orchestra re spomlcd witli affection, there was not always sufficient at- tack. Yet there were many ra This as an enterpiizing and combination, the orches ra, painist and conductor had JIB kind of rapport that matte one feet they were all experi cueing the music anew arid yet o tho fullest of their ability. I bad a few reservations but they tended to he minor. Perhaps the lovely tune in he first movement where the changes from minor to major was too percussive, and feel Miss Chapman could have explored the oods of (lie work from its proud, grand moments to its quiet intimacy a little more than she did. However, I was delighted she restrained herself from cross- ing the border from sensitivity ,o sentimentality. The subtly nuanced and wonderfully poetic larghetto was done with the most spirited and committed orchestral lay- ing and it was here eatizcd how muc-h our Leth- bridge Symphony had mprov- ed and how capable they can be when inspired. The final performance of Ihe evening was Rossini's Overture La Gaza Ladra. The title (The Thieving Mag pie) suggests a comic ork. We arc so used to thinking of operatic jesters. With a quip crack for everything, including himself, that we easily orgct he was the monarch of serious opera. I have very few criticisms other than to mention a few orchestral entries here the at- tack was distinctly less than unanimous. cool move KINS CUSTOM SMALL Enjoy Fngiking air conditioning in your Chevrolet Low cost.

The announcement of the construction of a million dis- tillery by International Distil- lers (Canada) Lid. slated to get under way in nortiieast Lelhbridgc this month caused Mr. Besplug lo say: "We're going to have a fairly good year." Supplementing his optimism, he also said an announcement ahout a multi million dollar construclion project for Leth- bridge is expected momentari- ly through the federal depart- ment of icgional economic ex- pansion. Lethbridge CMC will also open its separate student job centre this week. In its second year with its own office, the student service will again be manned by stu- dents, he said. All students looking for jobs and employers searching for student summer help will be funnelled through the student placement office. The location and official opening time of the summer- time service will be announced later this week.
