Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - October 24, 1973, Lethbridge, Alberta 5-THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD October 24, 1973 Beyond the printed note Music's anachronism is gone By HAROLD SCHONBERG New York Times Service Pablo Casals represented a ;ype of musicianship that is virtually extinct today a Tusicianship that had its in the romantic Tuitions of the 19th century. such he was a romantic i-mself. and young musicians :cday tended to look fondly ipon him as a living nachronism. All, especially string )iayers. had nothing but for Casals's powers as n instrumentalist. But as an interpreter his ideas ran counter to many of today's cherished notions. Today's musicians tend to be literalists. The printed note is the ultimate guide. Casals, however, along with other great musicians of his generation, tried to look beyond the printed note. The important thing in music, he kept telling his pupils, is what is not in the notes. The impor- tant thing is the re-creation of an emotion, a mood, an ex- perience. Thus when Casals played or THE UNIVERSITY OF tETHBRIDGE CONCERT SERIES A Recital by The Montana Woodwind Quintet Mary Jean Simpson (flute) William Manning (clarinet) Jerry Domer (oboe) Nancy Cochran (French horn) Edwin Rosenkrsnz (bassoon) YATES MEMORIAL CENTRE LETHBRIDGE Wednesday, October 31, 1973 p.m. TICKETS: Leisters' Music Limited Switchboard Operator, University of Lethbridge Yates Centre (immediately prior to performance) Adults S2.00 Students 50c conducted Bach, he was not afraid to indulge in certain ex- pressive devices that a stricter age regards as anathema. This did not dis- turb Casals, who considered Bach a romantic anyway. He would use an intensified scale of dynamics, avoid strict metrics (even to the point of the tempo phrase with a grand sweep and emphasize the melodic elements. His basic approach to Bach and the other early composers was substantially no different than it was to Brahms and Schumann. And who is to say that Casals, with his concentration on the expressive elements of music, had the wrong approach? He was no musicologist, but he was able to do what very few musicians can do play with complete PABLO CASALS always impressed and moved with its sheer conviction. His approach was so big that it simply negated criticism. As a conductor he brought the same kind of approach ex- emplified by his cello playing. At rehearsals he was con- stantly exhorting his players to sing out, to phrase with beauty, to use a full bow, to avoid dryness. He had the orchestra constantly thinking about dynamics. Even toward the end. his enthusiasm was as great as ever, his ear seemingly in- fallible. After a lifetime of liv- ing in an area of music that extended, approximately, from Bach through Brahms (he was a conservative, and contemporary music did not interest there were few things he did not know about his chosen literature. In ad- dition, he had total recall. He had met everybody and heard everybody, and he was a liv- ing encyclopedia on perfor- mance practice of the past. But Casals was not a blind idolater of the past. He was the first to admit that the new school was technically superior to the old, even if he had many reservations about the drier emotional approach of the new school. It was his ambi- tion to take the brilliantly gifted young cellists of today and try to instill into them something of the tradition and the ideals that motivated his own work.
