THE DETROIT JEWISH NEWS—Friday, January 15, 1960- 1 0

Gabrilowitsch, Chafes Tickton
Lipkin Listed in 'Jews in Music'


Three living Detroit musi-
cians and one deceased are list-
ed in the informative volume,
"Jews in Music," by Artur
Holde, published by Philosoph-
ical Library (15 E. 40th, N. Y.
Tribute is paid in this volume
to the "polished technique and
penetrating interpretation" of
the last Ossip Gabrilowitsch, who
"came from the great reservoir
of Eastern European musical
performers." Mention also is
made of Mrs. Gabrilowitsch —
Clara Clemens, the daughter of
Mark Twain—"who had an ex-
cellent alto voice." "Fascinating
as a pianist," is the way Holde
describes Gabrilowitsch, t h e
late conductor of the Detroit
Symphony Orchestra.
The three Detroiters who
are included among the Jews
in music are Julius Chajes,
Jason IL Tickton and Sey-
mour Lipkin.
Tickton is mentioned as one
of the "American ,synagogue
composers." The author fails to
make note of the fact that he
also is an able teacher—on the
faculty of Wayne State Uni-
versity's school of music—and
is the musical director of Tern-
ple Beth El, where he is ren-
dering valuable services.
Lipkin, whose name is mis-
spelled, also is given mere men-
tion. Here, too, the author fails
to give due credit to one of the
nation's outstanding pianists
who also is a noted conductor.
Chajes is referred to twice in
the book—first as a composer,
and then, at considerable
length, in comparison with
others mentioned in the book,
as follows:
"After student days in
Vienna, during which he al-
ready gained attention as pi-
anist and composer, Julius
Chajes (1910, Lwow) went to
Tel Aviv as piano teacher.
Since 1938 he has been active
in the United States as edu-
cator, organizer and pianist
in Detroit. He gave up the
conductor's post at Temple
Beth El in favor of that of
musical director at the Jew-
ish . Community Center in that
city. At the outset Brahms
was the predominant influ-
ence on Chajes as a composer.
Then he gained a more inde-
pendent tonal language by
contact with Jewish stylistic
elements. He contributed to
Jewish liturgical music with
`Psalm 142' for choir and with
a Sabbath eve service. The
cantata, 'The Promised Land,'
and the `Palestinian Suite'

Bnai Brith Releases
Revised College Guide

"College Guide for Jewish
Youth," a revised edition of an
earlier volume published by the
Bnai- Brith Vocational Service,
is now available.
Prepared by Robert Shosteck,
national director of research for
BBVS, and Alfred Jospe, direc-
tor of program and resources
for the Bnai Brith Hillel Foun-
dations, the booklet is designed,
as its name implies, to assist
Jewish youth in selecting a col-
lege best suited to their needs.
Its various sections deal with
choosing a college-, costs of at-
tending, admissions policies,
scholarships and Jewish life on
The main portion of the vol-
ume is a listing of "selected
colleges," which have at least
minimal appeal to Jewish stu-
Michigan colleges and univer-
sities are among those listed, to-
gether with information about
fraternities, Hillel Foundations
and counselorships and number

for orchestra, also chamber
music, are further testimony
to his talent."
It is evident that Artur Holde
is inaccurate in many of his
biographical evaluations. Chajes,
as is well known, came to De-
troit at the call of the Jewish
Center. He was associated with
Temple Beth El for a very lim-
ited time. The sketch just quot-
ed hardly does him sufficient
The same is true about many
other musicians who are treated
inadequately in this book.
Holde's text on the history of
Jewish music, on Hazanut, on
creative efforts, is much more
The writing of the book was
made possible for Holde, who
studied at Berlin University and
was a music critic and conduc-
tor in Frankfurt-am-Main, be-
fore coming to the United
States, was made possible by a
grant from the department of
cultural and educational recon-
struction of the Conference of
