Betty April Jeffers of Lethbridge An annual we By PAT ORCHARD The Vancouver Radio under the inspired direction of John thrilled a near-capacity audience at the Yates Memorial Centre on Saturday evening. The program began with Arriago's Overture to Happy This was music of charm and inventiveness despite the composer's association with contemporaries such as Mendelssohn and drew upon a fund of individual and remarkably novel rather Rossinian in style. The players did excellent justice to the reawakening regrets that Arriago never lived to embark upon more major creative works. The strings next performed a Suite of Greek dances by Mikolas Skalkattos. The sounds were many and some some a few and some Fur Coat Storage Time The Lethbridge Furriers PHONE 327-2209 quite revolting to my ears. the orchestra ably conveyed the fusion of traditional rhythm and modern harmonic patterns. The main work of the first half was Haydn's Symphony No. 93. Mr. Avison conveyed the lofty grandeur of the Allegro with an almost minuet-type delicacy. At this some of the details of phrasing and other expressive nuances were more Mr. Avison's than Mr. with the andante becoming dangerously slow and lingering. these corruptions were soon forgotten during the deeply moving atmosphere of the when the orchestra conveyed Haydn's most felicitous comedy vein by allowing the bassoon to break the mood with a rather vulgar statement. The orchestra coped superbly with all the terrifying demands of articulation placed upon them in the and ended with an exhilarating conclusion. After the intermission the orchestra was joined by Jacinthe pianist laureate of the CBC Talent for a performance of Beethoven's Concerto No. 1. The opening was rather Mozartian in and began with a long orchestral introduction. The conductor's ability to change expression was strikingly illustrated as he responded to the lighthearted and somewhat military cheerfulness of the first yet managed to give an unusually gentle and yielding treatment to the serenity of slow movement. This in by. its great set off the humor CLIFF BLACK DENTAL LAB MEDICAL DENTAL KM. PHONI MM612 in the finale. Miss Couture was obviously not used to concert performances. Her first entry was and she pressed too hard in her efforts to present the brightness of early Beethoven. The results were curiously despite the technical virtuosity of both solist and orchestra. The finale was ridiculously as the soloist dashed through the movement in a way which left including exhausted. I ought not impute blame to Mr. since he was only doing his job in matching the orchestral contribution to the soloist's reading. But poor her rendering of the middle movement was constantly a matter for marvel. She stuck to the basic yet conveyed complete with no feeling of being constrained within the bars. The clarity of the woodwinds were a tribute to everyone and similarly the string playing was a joy throughout. The final two numbers with 20th-century compositions. Claude Champagne's the by Jean Francaix. The latter was the highlight of the evening. These were both in the bucolic-impressionistic downbeat of the folk dance featuring prominently. The Radio Orchestra had the tonal range required to breathe the spirit of these dances most authentically. It is always a pleasure to receive a visit from the Vancouver Radio Orchestra under their talented and genial conductor Mr. Avison. this year George Zukerman did not have a solo as but shone in several solo passages.
