Debussy-like Lowenguth Scores

The Week To Come:
A Campus Calendar

By R. A. PERRY
It is sad that many outstanding
musical organizations receive scant
attention only because they record
with companies of second rate"
quality. The great conductor
Jascha Horenstein and the so-
prano Erna Berger both never re-'
ceived deserved attention in Amer-
ica for this reason. Likewise, the
outstanding French string quartet,
the Loewenguth, which played to
a dismally sparse audience last
night in Rackham Auditorium, has
been somewhat demeaned by their
affiliation with a "B" recording
company.
Thus it was exciting to be al-

Plug into an Overused Socket

By STUART APTiKAR
Jeremy Steig and the Satyrs
plugged into the Canterbury House
last night and turned on 500 watts
of distortion.
There was hair and flutes, there
were boots and roots, but amplified
nada-doo-dah is no surprise even
on Reprise so to speak.
Leader Jeremy Steig has es-,
caped the jazz stigma of his first
record on Columbia and accepted
A.C. current a's the B.C. of psycho-
electric greens. Billed as the blues
band with harpsichord and flutes,
the Satyrs' first power hour sent'
everyday sounds from the har-
monica;, flute and circus-poised
guitar of lead. voice Warren Bern-
hardt.
And the sounds camve through
the left and right channels of a
Sony 260 tape recorder so that
the volume and quality of leader
Jeremy Steig's flute work was lost.
Though the four Satyrs invested
much energy in their performance,
the real stars of the evening were
four matched Ampeg amplifiers.
With power and poise, the black
boxes of electronic artistry de-
livered their message with clerical
conviction and professional pre-
cision. It is little wonder that
these creative instruments are in
such demand in the rock world.
No Canterbury patron was left
unmoved by the frequency oscilla-
tion and freaky fidelity of the Am-
peg reverberations. Jeremy and the
Satyrs, however, remained the
puppets of solid state. As long as
the current flows, whatever musi-
cal abilities they have are lost
in gross electronics.

Designates
(Continued from Fage 1)
some $52 million to support over
10,000 U.S. and Canadian students
in their first year of graduate
study.
"Now our major role is to iden-
tify for graduate departments
those students who in our view
have the best potential for college
teaching," said Sir Hugh Taylor,
president of the Woodrow Wilson
Foundation.
"This year's designates are as
distinguished and carefully se-
lected a group as last year's fel-
lows. 'We hope all of them will
receive assistance from the grad-
uate schools or from federal or
other fellowship programs.'
Designates at the University are:
Carl Alstfom, Robert Brammer, Gerald
Cupchik, Dale Harger, Alexander Kly-
myshyn, John Leach, Kristna Morr-
son, Michael Olahausen, John Tenhu-
nen, Wilma Wetterstrom, David Wru-
bel'.
Also named were: Katherine Chanmpe,
John Cook. Peter Deutsch, Merle Ja-
cob, Thomas Kaiser, Justin Krasnoff,
Ross Miller, Adele Negro, Rayna Rapp
Ronald Rosenblatt, Joyce Plell, Steven
Shavell, ,Gary Skoog, Mark Smelson,
Julie Wang, and William Whan.
University seniors receiving honor-
able mention are: Thomas Anderson,
Steven Beaver, Sanford Bell, Robert
Boggs, Donald Brezinski, Edward Fry-
zel, Peter Mikelson, Diane Rogow, Wil-
liam Schroeder, Thomas Snapp, Mark
Stauter, Kathryn Teich, Charles Wright.
Also: Alice Bloch, Barbara Boden-
horn, John Brockett, Daniel Caster,
Susan Harding, William Hugenberg,
Martha Kohler, Elissa Matross, Virginia
Mochel, Jeremy Raven, Neil Shister,
Michael Stern, Elizabeth Valiance,
Joyce Winslow, and Ellen Zweig.

the piece is almost narcotic in its!
thematic repetitiveness, though
the way in which the bowed lyrics
of the first violin contrast with
the pizzicato canvas in the second
movement is very exciting.
One wonders why, with the ex-
tensive available audience in Ann!
Arbor, the audience was so small,
and of such a small percentage of
students. The Chamber Music
Festival continues tonight with
the much celebrated Warsaw
Chamber Orchestra and concludes
Sunday with an unusual concert
by the Early Music Quartet. Such
concerts deserve as much student
attention as does MUSKET and'
that is not meant as a cut at that
particular group.
