Ijowvel, however', and iin some
wvays the pianist's understate -
mnlt verged on pussy-footing,
esp~ecially in the opening Presto
Ini fact, Dichter seemed al-
mlost consciously to deny the
mlotival import of the first foul'
descending nlotes of the move-
merit, as wvell as the inotival
imipor't of the opening triplet of
the finale Allegro. By doing so,
lie under'cut some of the special
genius of Beethoven, wich is
thte dynamic working-out. of
In the Lai'go e inesto, he was,
as indicated, gloriously poetic,
with an iintenlse control of the
tension betwxeen senrtiment and
v'acuiumi. His touch was, inlnmy
minid, perifectly' suited to his ap-
pr'oachn: clean but rnot icy,
smocoth bttnot glib. True, lie
lacked the ultimate control of
r'tbato that mnakes, for' instance,
thr 'im of sixteenth nlotes ini the
second bar' of the seconld sub-
ject miore than just a runrr of
sixteenth nlotes' in tihe hands of
Schnabel, but even Schnabel
did not effect that type of con-
frontation with beauty that
Sachs and IHtixley speak of.
The ensuing br'ief Minuet,
mindlessly easy to absorb after
the coricentr'ationi demanded by
the Largo, suffer'ed from under'-
statr ,znent it r'eally needed to
be leieutsd froml Dichrter's r'e-
fined seisibility.
Follovirig t hr e Beethov'en,
Dicht er performed Six Br'ahmns
pieces,: a Ballade, threec Capric-
cios, rand two Intermezz'os. The
Interme-zzos, espeically the No.
3 of' Op. 117, were p~layed beau-
tif'ully, againt with the p~ianlist's
penchant for' understatement.
CHe did nrot seek to make the
Xor'ks, even tire mor'e ebullient
Capriccio No.1, Op. 116, overly
dramatic statements, as mrost
pianists do. By eschewing the
dranma - which in Brahms can
be as exciting as a butcher'
hacking mneat-Dichter distilled
all evanescent poetry, and it is
not exagger'ation to say thlat he
pr'oduced a diaphanous veil of

sound that pulled the audience
in and then released them to
their own memor'ies. (For once,
the coughing stopped.) Dichter
accomplished such an effect not
by magic, of course, but by a
touch that never struck a dis-
cordant elemenrt. In the begin-
ining of the Op. 117, No. 1 Inter-
mezzo, he had just the right
weight in his left hand-the ef-
t'ect was almost subliminal.
After an intermission, Dichter
performed Moussorgsky's great
ar't museum ti'avelog, Pictures
at an Exhibition. The music de-
scnibes a memorial exhibition of
the paintings of Victor' Har't-
mnn, a fr'iend of the composer,
occasionally interr'upted by a
"pr'omenade" which car'ies the
listener' fr'om one scene to the
ntext. Sev'er'al of the scenes ar'e
comical. sever'al are nostalgic,
sev'er'al ar'e demonic. The work
climaxes withl the "Great Gate
of Kiev." and Moussorgsky mi-
r'aculously captur'ed in sounid
the hubbub of people passing
under'tile gate and the clangor'
of chur'ch bells in the city. It is
a wxoi'k which challenges not on-
ly tile pianist's technique but
also his imaginative powers of
Ir'onically, because tile poetry
of this music is more niarr'ative,
more explicit, Dichter's color'-
istic abilities wer'e less in de-
nnlanld. Those scenes which ar'e
miore impr'essionstic, such as5
"Tile Old Castle," fared best;
more dramatically o b v i o u s
scernes, such as "Ballet of the
Unhatchedi Chicks,", came off in
a more detached manner.
Success of accomplishirng tile
final scenes inevitably must be
complar'ed with the gr'eat per-
formances of the wor'k, that by
Richter' and by Hor'owitz. Rich-
ter' especially seemed to possess
eighlt hands and he cr'eated an
overwxhelming tumult of bells.
Dichter's rendition was far snore
controlled, unfrenzied, a nI d
structurally clear', but it was rnot
without a febrile excitement of
its owvn.
