Canadian pianist Glenn Gould
will play the first Choral Union
concert of the season at 8:30 p.m.
tomorrow in Hill Auditorium.
He first appeared in Ann Arbor
two years ago, at the May Festival,
as soloist with the Philadelphia
Orchestra. Gould made his United
States debut in Washington in
1955, and his formal solo debut
with the Toronto Symphony Or-
chestra in 1947.
Best known as a concert pianist
and a foremost interpreter of Bach,
Gould is active as composer, lec-

"I Knock at the Door," volume
one of Sean O'Casey's autobio-
graphy, will open at 8 p.m. Oct. 16
in Trueblood Auditorium.
It is the first speech department
production of the current Playbill
series and will be done in concert
This, to enable the cast and au-
dience to transcend space and
time, is done with readers per-
forming various roles but not mov-
ing on stage.
"I Knock at the.Door" is told in
the third person; it recounts the
childhood of the mythical "John-
ny Casside," Basic and funda-
mental things are treated.
"Nothing is momentous in it-
self, but these elemental things
become symbols of the race and
represent universal beauty,"
Brooks Atkinson, New York Times
Drama Critic, said of a New York
"I Knock at the Door" was
adapted for concert reading by
Paul Shyre, and tells the story of
O'Casey's childhood in Dublin.
Reviewing O'Casey's original
book, Atkinson further commented
that it was "the most perceptive
book I have read" about entering
an adult world and "blundering
around in search of a place in so-
"He is writing the most glorious
English prose of his time. It is
angry because it is founded in love
and tenderness, which are the ba-
sic qualities of Mr. O'Casey's char-
Prof. Claribel Baird of the speech
department will direct the playbill
production, which features a fac-
ulty-student cast. Prof. Baird,

ture and Life," said of one of his

having, as it were, bridged the gap
between Bach and our own days."
*Known for 'Idiosyncracies'
Gould's personality, too, has
caused wide comment. Known for
"platform idiosyncracies" and
slightly theatrical presentations,
his - performances involve such
things as specially designed piano
chairs. His manner has been com-
pared to that of the Romantic
pianists, such as Liszt and Paga-
Although generally thought of
as a Bach artist, Gould is definite-
ly and significantly associated
with contemporary music, and is
known as an outstanding inter-
preter of Hindemith, Schoenberg,
and Webern. He has, on occasion,
conducted Schoenberg selections
from the piano.
Since then he has toured Cana-
da, the United States and Europe,
appearing with major symphony
orchestras and giving recitals in
all principal cities.
Gould will begin his program
with "Fantasia for Organ" by
Sweelinck. This will be followed
by Schoenberg's "Suite, Opus 25,"
and Mozart's " onata in C'major,
' He will finish with "the Gold-
berg Variations" by Bach.

University political science depart-

of Wesleyan University in Connec-
ticut will engage in spontaneous
discussions concerning psychologi-
cal effects on a person born in a
depression, during war years, or
during a boon.
Prof. Neumann believes that a
man could be more, pliable to dic-
tatorship if he were born during
a particular era. He cites as an
example the fact that the leading
Nazis 'in ,Germany were all with
the exception of Hitler born be-
tween 1890 and 1900.
As they passed their formative I
years in World' War I combat,
"they remained," he says, "activ-

Th eprofessors then transpose
the problem of generations to this
country. Prof. Neumann feels that

depression years, could make them
