'Looking Glass' Emerges Abov

Ilixel But lnjoyab

By JAMES SVEJDA
The advertisement read "'Car-
rmina Burana'" (opera by Carl
Orff) - Expo '67 production with
Les Ballets Canadiens." More
properly, of course, it should have
been "Les Ballets Canadiens with
incidential music by Carl Orff,"
This quibble should in no way
be taken as criticism; it simply
means that if you went Sunday
night expecting the musical reali-
zation of "Carmina Burana" to be
the focal point of the concept
you were in for a little disap-
pointment.
But even though the concert

both musically and as dance came
as something of a mixed blessing,
the overall effect that it pro-
duced was highly enjoyable.
The companion piece on the
program, a "Divertissement Gla-
zounov" drawn from that com-
poser's "treasure chest of music
titled 'Raymonda'" was given
with an "orchestra" of two pianos.
A friend of mine remarked that
the use of so modest a musical
force gave the performance a dis-
tinct "rehearsal" quality.
Spirited Dancing
Personally, I found this ar-
rangement preferable to a full
orchestra since the presence of
only two pianos mercifully tended
to keep attention away from the
relentless banality of Glazounov's,
music. The dancing, it seemed to
me, was spirited and accurate al-
though the choreography (owing,
perhaps, to the character of the
music) seemed bland and with-
out any particular direction.
Musically, "Carmina Burana"
was consistently distinguished.
Disregarding soprano Michele
Bonhomme's faulty intonation (in
"In trutina" she sounded nearly
a halftone flat in some places),
the vocal soloists were excellent,
tenor John Boydon especially so.
The aria "Dies, nox et omnia"
which among its rigors includes a
high D, was sung with grace, ut-
ter lack of apparent strain and
and admirably in tune-
Responsive Chorus
In defense of conductor Vla-
dimir Jelinek, who may have
seemed to over-emphasize the
pointillistic features of the score,
the man did surprisingly well con-
sidering he was given only the
two pianos and a battery of ex-
tremely busy percussionists to
with. Actually, with the aid of
a responsive, full-bodied chorus,

PROF. HANS DAVID

Hans T. David, 65, professor of
music and one of the world's
greatest authorities on musicology,j
died yesterday morning at his
home at 1678 Glenwood Road,
Anin Arbor.
Prof. David joined the Univer-
sity faculty in 1950 and held theI
rank of professor since 1952. In

tises and books on Johann Se-
bastian Bach are some of the most
important resource materials to
