On a technical level, I was very disappointed. The orches- tra cvlremcly nervous and seemed so intent on the most disciplined playing that tlicy lacked the spirit behind the notes. There was plenty of lightness and detail but seemed lo he a void of dramatic ten- sion, or perhaps one should say Mozarlcan 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. Needliam conducted the intro- duction slower than most of his contemporaries and was faster in the main Allegro! A revelation, as he is obviously inspiring Ihc orchestra from ils worst kind of interpre- tive rigidity. Despite the many technical difficulties resulting from few ecentricitics of balance, anrl Interpretive weakness, the orchestra retained a freshness of improvisalion and an bvious enthusiasm for he music. The orchestra Ihon went on to play Schubert's Symphony No. B in B Minor. I felt the performance was less than competent. My res- ervations mostly concern 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 uupleasan' rasps from the strings as they tended to make a less than euphonious m u s i cat sound There was a good deal of dia- logue among cellos and violins and it was here the faulls were glaring. The performance was not really fresh enough for schu bert but there were some ex cellent moments of poetic feel ing, although moments they tended to remain. However, a cerlain degree o perfiinctorincss must be for given as some of the over-al effects were most inspiring and the diligence involved must be 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'jcsira's opening contribu- tion, but those were soon for gotten when Miss I.ouisc Chap- man slarlcd her performance with executant power. One knew immediately she had Ihe ability to put the (orch- estra together. She reacted to the music spontaniously and en- joyed herself. Miss Chapman had vilaliU slrong rhythm and some bbeau- lifully controlled cant abilc playing. Although Ihc orchestra re- sponded with affection, there was not always sufficient al- lack. Yel there were many ra- Tlris as an enlerpiizing and rare combination, the orchej Ira, painisl and conductor had the kind of rapport thai mate one feel they were all experi- encing the music anew and yet lo.lhc fullest of their ability I bad a few reservations hut they tended to be minor. Perhaps the lovely tune In Ihe first movement where the key changes from minor to major was too percussive, and f feel Miss Chapman could have explored the oods of Ihe work from its proud, grand momenls to its quiet intimacy a little more lhan she did. However, I was delighted she restrained herself from crOE ing the border from sensitivity to sentimentality. The subtly nuanced and wonderfully poetic larg h cfto was done with the most spirited and committed orchestral lay ing and it was here I realized how much our Lcth- bridge Symphony had mprov ed and capable they can he when inspired. The linal performance of Ihe evening was Rossini's Overture La Ladra. The title (The Thieving Mag- pie) suggests a comic ork. We ore so used to thinking of opcralic 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 lhan to mention a few orchestral entries here Ihc at- tack was distinctly less lhan unanimous. cool move KING CUSTOM SMALL Enjoy air condiliomng in your Chevrolet1.
