Musicians
Impress
Russians
By DAVID MARCUS
The University Symphonic Band
may have started another Rus-
sian Revolution, but this time in
music.
Prof. William D. Revelli, the
band's conductor, said that after
hearin gthe group, Russian music
educators were inquiring about
curriculum and orchestrations for
bands. No Russian schools or com-
munities have bands.
"We may see a sudden growth
of bands," Prof. Revelli noted.
"Although the concept of band
music is new to these people, they
really enjoyed it," he commented
concerning both the general pub-
lic and the faculty and students of
music schools.
"They are deeply appreciative of
serious classical, baroque, roman-
tic and contemporary music," he
said.
There was also enthusiasm for
some light American music in-
cluding Broadway show tunes and
marches.
Prof. Revelli cited one review,
highly praising the band and its
music, which did not realize that

WILLIAM D. REVELLI
.director congratulated
much of the serious music in the
program had been especially writ-
ten for band.
He termed Russian musical ed-
ucation "splendid and comprehen-
sive." The band visited nine con-
servatories in Soviet countries,
playing exchange recitals and con-
certs with many.
They also visited many univer-
sities and polytechnical schools.
"The Russians are very proud
of the fact that their schools are
all free' and that, in fact, the stu-
dents get a per diem allowance.
"They would sometimes ask us
what happens to a highly talent-
ed American musical student if he
does not have the money to go to
school."
He also noted general interest
in American economic conditions,
standard of living, taxes, and the
political situation.
"They would ask how much a
shop foreman makes and then how
much a teacher makes and how
much of this money is spent for
taxes.
"There was also. some curiosity
about the size of American homes.
In Russia, where living space is
allotted per capita, they kept ask-
ing if it were true that -in the
United States two people some-
times have six or seven rooms.
"Another subject of interest for
a time was the recession going on
in America."
Prof. Revelli also found Rus-
sian wind instruments to be in-
ferior to those used in the west.
He noted French clarinets, wide-
ly used among musicians, and
American brass instruments as su-
perior to the Russian varieties.
"The first trumpet in the Bol-
shoi Ballet orchestra bought an
American trumpet while he was
here in New York as well as a
great number of other instru-
ments to be shipped back to the
Soviet Union."
Prof. Revelli contrasted the Near
East with the Soviet Union.
"The Near East is a more back-
ward place culturally and tech-
nologically than Russia," he said.
He noted that the symphonic
band gave the first instrumental
concertrthat he couldnascertain
had ever been played in Bethle-
hem.
Returning to the United States
for a final June 2 performance at
Carnegie Hall, the band met with
congratulations and praise.
"The New York Times" wrote of
their New York concert :
"The Michigan ensemble, com-
posed of 94 students of the Uni-
versity, played with the precision
of a well-oiled machine."
The Michigan Legislature passed
a resolution congratulating the
band. The "New York Times" re-
view was inserted into the Con
gressional record. Letters of con
