Syme performed the
"Rachmaninoff Con-
certo No. 2" with the Detroit
Symphony Orchestra. In the
27 years since then, he has
performed with the DSO on
six other occasions. He's
played as guest soloist with
London's Philharmonic Or-
chestra, the Victoria, B.C.
Symphony, and the Los
Angeles Pops, along with
numerous other orchestras,
and has recorded four albums.
Music critics throughout
the U.S., Canada, Mexico, and
Europe use such words as "in-
describably
sensitive,"
"supercharged,"
and
"brilliant" to describe his
artistry.
On Aug. 26-27, Syme will
perform with the Meadow
Brook Festival Orchestra.
The pianist, son of rIbmple
Israel's Rabbi and Mrs. M.
Robert Syme, will play Ger-
shwin's "Rhapsody in Blue."
(In 1983, during his last ma-
jor appearance in the Detroit
area, he also performed Ger-
shwin's "Rhapsody," with the
Birmingham-Bloomfield
Symphony.)
A star pupil for many years
of Detroit's noted music in-
structor, Mischa Kottler,
Syme didn't begin his formal
study of the piano until age
12, although he'd been play-
ing "by ear" for almost 10
years by that time, and had
grown up in a family inclin-
ed toward music. (His father

was once known as "the boy
cantor of Winnipeg.")
Still, contends Syme who
also studied with Julius Cha-
jes, piano playing did not
come especially easy for him.
"I was not a child prodigy," he
emphasizes, adding that he
often spent hours when he
was a boy simply learning to
co-ordinate his fingers. Hard
work or no, however, once he
started studying the piano he
never aspired to a career in
anything else.
"Mischa Kottler was ab-
solutely a great inspiration to
me," he says. "And I can say
that, without doubt, he was
directly responsible for my
wanting to become a pianist.
When I heard him play in
concert the first time in 1961
when I was 12, I said, 'This is
it. This is what I want to do.' "
Shortly after graduating
from Mumford High School,
the • young pianist
distinguished himself by
beating out a large number of
other competitors for a
chance to perform with the
Detroit Symphony.
"When I auditioned in the
contest, I had honestly
thought there was no way I
was going to win," he recalls.
"I was in New York when my
father called me with the
news that I had won, and my
whole life changed complete-
ly and immediately with that
phone call."
His concert tours, begun
shortly after he won the DSO
competition, would take him
to performance halls in the
Netherlands, France, Italy,
