Piano-Cello Duo Delights Audience By BLAIR The current University o] Lethbridge Concert Series scored a second success Wednesday night with the pre- sentation of Bisha, cellist, and )ianist, in Louise recital Chapman, at Yates Memorial Cenlre. Both per- formers proved to be more than competent musicians and delighted the audience with a vrvried and unique program. The program opened with Vi- valdi's Sonata No. I in B Flat. Though it was a bit coolly play- ed, the performance was tech- nically accurate, clearly artic- ulated and established Mr. Bisha as being very much in command of his instrument. The second work, the rarely- heard Sonata for Cello and Pi- ano by Claude Debussy, was the most substantial on the program and its performance, the mast outstanding of Ihs evening. This work is not the usual lush Debussy of the im- pressionistic era, but being written late in his life, it shows strong indications of the more esoteric 2Mb century styles that were evolving at the time. The score abounds in bits of color and pointilb'slic frag- ments that must be strung to- gether carefully on a thin and subtle thread. In this skill both performers excelled with individual musi- cianship and fine ensemble playing. The second half of the pro- gram was mostly dessert. For- tunately the pastries were so delightfully done the result was more than satisfactory. Serenade by Poulenc, Piece en forme de Habanera by Ha- vel and Scherzo, Opus 12, No. 2 by van Goens formed ihe first group of shorter pieces after the intermission. The Ravel proved to be the highlight of this group with the performers capturing beautifully the highly polished sophistication tha com- poser intended. In Hie Serenade there were some slight intonation slips in the highsr registers on the cello and the Scterzo had a momentary problem in en- semble. The final group of the eve- ning consisted of the tour Chants d'Espagne pour Cello et Piano by Nin. These were all well-played with the perform- ers combining to bring out the exotic color and Spanish flavor so abundant in the score. The encore, the final treat, was a setting by Ralph Vaughan-Williams of two En- glish folk songs. Editor's Note: Dean Blair is associate professor of mu- sic at the University ol Leth- bridge. 270 Registered For Crime Meet More than 270 advance regis-l Featured speaker Saturday trations from outside Lsth- bridge have been received for the Crime, Correction and You conference Nov. 6 to 8, spon- sored by QIC John Howard So- Newly-Formed Hiking Cliib AU1ED ARTS HOLDS OPEN HOUSE The Oldmon River Potter's Guild and representatives from ihe 28 olher member groups of Ihe Allied Arls Council of fethbridge were out in force Wednesday night For on open house ot Ihe Bowman Arls Centre.
