Monday no Vimini 30, 1970 Ity Chester i Marta Brandon u Trio lauded the Frincis club tit Mil com Tail Cut Irefej by a Tho pm of. It m. Eck raft my of. A fimm to Hall University of Manitoba Sehl of music. How Lucky and enterprising is Brandon University to have a set of musicians like this to teach on staff and to provide the students and residents with regular concerts of what is to my mind the heart of the musical tradition. Everything they Are Likely to do has sub stance and authority. They Are an extremely Well drilled Trio with the kind of musical Security and persuasiveness that comes with Long association. Each of the players is wonder fully talented and competent but for the Best of All possible reasons it is As a unit that we know them. One always wonders a Little How this Hall is going to be for As a Public place it flatters Al most no one. But apart from the noisier and More clotted parts of the More symphonic movements the sounds were remarkably Clear and the strands finely separate. The concert grand soon to be re placed is also a frustrating problem for every pianist but for some reason or. Macpherson made it sound the Best it Ever has. F the opus 70, no. 2 is far from the kind of Beethoven that charms a listener into immedi ate submission. It seems at times to avoid Ordinary kindness in favor of a vision1 that is transcendent ally beyond expected comforts. Yet it was really a splendid performance of this formidable work. The Beautiful Gravity of the begin Ning was touchingly caught the Tempo of the cunning allegretto was deliriously Correct and in the furious contrapuntal dazzle and Joy of the finale the whole Conception caught fire. The Eckhardt Gramatte Trio was commissioned by the Csc in 1967, and since then it has received several Public performances and broadcasts and one Hopes that it will finally slip into the classical Trio Reper Toire. It certainly deserves to for it sounds More and More like a masterpiece perhaps the Best thing this remarkable person has Ever done. I had the Honor of working with the com Poser in preparation for its first performance and in getting to know its every note i was certainly under the impression that great things were being de signed for a very exacting medium. Now it sounds even More natural and convincing drive singly passionate in its essential romanticism and gaiety. With so much Youthful talk about the vital wildness of Rock and the placidity of classical music one must say that one does t get wild nest or vitality like this every Day. I have a feeling that if pop enthusiasts listened to More works like this they might be really shaken. It must seem this year to Madame Eckhardt that her cup run Neth Over her Manitoba symphony this Trio and numerous other works being per formed. Perhaps Manitoba after All is not a bad place for one modern composer to live that is if you have the wit and the will to make something Hap pen. Anyway the 1967 Trio went extremely Well and although or. Macpherson was As usual Brilliant in Bis part there was in addition some cello and violin playing. What a grip these players have on musical circumstance the late Brahms Trio was Al most equally successful Al though by the nature of things the textures become More difficult Here to realize and some of the teutonic bluster of the last movement is not quite Tol Erable. This is because the other movements i suppose Are so perfect that gorgeous andante which proceeds compellingly in full throated ease and the scurrying virtuosity of the scherzo Are of course the highlights of the piece. But the concert was full of Don University Trio returns highlights pleasure of sub stance variety and taste. Maybe the next time the bran the Hall will be packed.
