Overheard reissues:A bit for all

By DONALD SOSIN
Among recent releases from
Odyssey is a charming collec-
tion of pieces for clarinet and
piano, impeccably performed by
Stanley Drucker and Leonid
Hfambro. Drucker, who is first
clarinetist of the New York Phil-
harmonic, is-well represented on
discs, and this is one of his fin-
est. The works include sonatines
by Milhaud and Monegger, sona-
tas by Bax and Bernstein, and a
little .morsel by Debussy sand-
wiched in between.
From the Odyssey "Great Co-
lumbia Stereo Recordings" Series
comes the Sibelius Violin Con-
certo, with David Oistrakh and
the Philadelphia Orchestra under
Eugene Ormandy. It is not as
captivating as other renditions;
Oistrakh's is a cool interpreta-
tion, but without the real tran-
quility that is needed to make
this type of reading work. (On
the other side of the coin is Hei-
fetz' immensely passionate ver-
sion, which to this reviewer re-
mains unsurpassed.) Ormandy
and his crew turn in a fair per-
formance, toned down to niatch
Oistrakh's.
Also in this reissue series is
Strauss' Don Juan and Death
and Transfiguration, with the
Cleveland Orchestra under the
late George Szell. Long recog-
nized as one of the country's fin-
est conductors, Szell refined
* Cleveland's sound and achievCd
a beautiful balance of lines. But
he was more at home in Mozart
and Beethoven than in the hyper-
boles of Strauss, and the result
is a too careful performance,
lacking richness and grand ges-
tures. The sound of the re 3trd.
itself, moreover, is not espeilly

good, with little presence and an
overall tinny quality.
By way of contrast, Bernald
Haitink's new recording of Ein
Heldenleben, with the Concert-
gebouw Orchestra of Amsterdan,
is a thrilling statement. The Phi-
lips sound is excellent, and con-
ductor and orchestra know- this

piece inside out. No !.on let:
Strauss dedicated his tone poem
to this group, when Mentgelberg
was conducting it. Score anothi-
coup for Maitink, whose Mahler
and Bruckner recordings have
won him praise.sThis one is cur-
tamn to get its share.

Student street. fair

By ANITA CRONE
This year, an extra street will
be used for the Ann, Arbor
street fair, scheduled for July
21-24. Traditionally, national ar-
tists, who pass a screening ex-
axination and pay a heavy
booth fee are invited to partici-
pate in the street fair.
But for the first time, as an
outgrowth of the diag show and
sale last year, East University
will be turned over to the Free
University and University Activi-
ties Center (UAC), as sponsors
of a local art show, simultaneous-
ly with the street fair.
Last year, during the street
show, students set up a show in
the diag where they sold candles,
pottery, sculpture, clothes, jewel-
ry and other crafts.
The East University fair, has
the advantage of being primarily
for local high school and Univer-
sity students and staff. There is
no booth fee, and no "'ualifice-
tion screening."
At the present tim , space
priority for the 40 tales to be
set up on East U. will be givesi
to art over politics. However, the
diag area will be available for
leafletting and political oo.s
throughout the fair. In addition,

Cinema Guild will hold its Satur-
day night film showing on the
diag.
An added opportunity for stu-
dents will be in selling bake
goods and other foodstoffs. Phil
Cherner of UAC is in charge ef
setting up the food booths. A
health permit has been obtained.
The; only rules for shov ing
work is that all work must be
hand-crafted, and no commercial
items will be accepted. It is
hoped that there will be a va-
riety of crafts.
To avoid confusion, the Free
U and UAC have requested that
people register before June 31.
All people planning to participate
in the fair should fill out a regis-
tration form obtainable from the
Free U office or the Office of
Student Services.
