The Tokyo String Quartet cli-
maxed an already superb series
of string quartets in their Sun-
day presentation of the Cham-
ber Arts Series. Their pro-
gram of Haydn, Bartok, and
Debussey was a clear cut de-
monstration of first-rate talent.
The quartet, four young Jap-
anese musicians trained in To-
kyo and at the Julliard School
in New York, consists of Koi-

The quartet sensed and lis-

Music School mourns
By DAVID WEINBERG and TONY CECERE
Nelson M. Hauenstein, associate dean for academic
affairs at the School of Music, died yesterday afternoon at
the age of 54.
Hauenstein, who had been ill for several weeks, had
served as an instructor of flute at the University since
1947. He was appointed to a full professorship in 1963, and
was designated associate dean in 1971.
He was a charter member of the Music School's Wood-
wind Quintet, and was the flautist in the Baroque Trio.
He performed frequently in concert appearances with the
Ann Arbor and Plymouth orchestras.
Music School Dean Allen Britton called Hauenstein "one
of the best flautists in the world."
"He was the kind of person that everyone just loved,"
Britton said. "He was an outstanding teacher of flute. All
of us are desolated by his death."
Associate Dean Robert Warner termed Hauenstein "a
superb musician, whose playing produced memorable ex-
periences and whose teaching inspired hundreds of talented

Music. He received a master's degree from the University

The musicians may be young,;
but their performance gave'
little indication of any musical
immaturity. What impressed
this reviewer most was the abil-

cise unity of attack and expres-

sists of a series of heavily ac-
cented, almost barbaric unison
chords. Played slightly out of
synchronization, the effect is
disasterous. Played together, as
smooth, helped along by the
acoustics of plushly carpeted

tempts by the Musical Society,
to move quartet concerts into
the concrete Power Center,
should be dissuaded.
The program began withl

pretation was lush, and the Vi-1

essential Haydn - robust, hu-
morous, and framed in eigh-
teenth century elegance. The
vivace finale was great fun.
There was, however, a sore
point to the usually smooth
sound of the Tokyo. First vio-
linist Harada often strained to
achieve a predominance over,
the rest of the quartet. The
strain was really unnecessary-
the rest of the quartet neverJ
actually drowned Harada out,
and the strain sometimes
cracked the violinist's tone.
The Bartok, performed sec-
ond on the program, is a work
that reflects stylistic trends
from both the middle and late
periods of the composer's life.
In arch form, like the fourthj
quartet, it also shares many
of the tonal effects and devices
of its predecessor. Harmonic-
ally, however, the fifth quartet
is linked to such later Bartok
as the Concerto for Strings, Per-
cussion, and Celeste.
The Tokyo's precision was
important in performing this
thorny quartet, full of rhythmic
pratfalls and technical deviltry.
The four showed an understand-
ing both for the folk music
foundations and the sophisticat-
ed compositional technique in-
herent in the work.
The Debussy Quartet in Gj
Minor ended the program. The
performance was tight, with
