Orchestra
springs back

By JANE CARL
What's more than 100 members strong and returns to Ann
Arbor each spring with such regularity that the swallows at
Capistrano have reason to be jealous? It's the Philadelphia
Orchestra under the direction of Eugene Ormandy perfor-
ming at the 88th annual May Festival.
The Philadelphia Orchestra first performed in Ann Arbor
in 1913 and 1914, and joined the May Festival lineup in 1936
under the baton of Leopold Stowkowski. In 1937 Ormandy
succeeded Stowkowski and has been with the orchestra in
Ann Arbor consecutively for 44 years.
AN IMPRESSIVE LIST of works and performers 'accom-
panies this year's festival. Highlights of the week should be
the Mozart "Exultate, jubilate," on the April 29 concert, the
Bruch "Violin Concerto in G minor," on the April 30 concert,
the Mozart "Symphony No. 41," on the May 1 concert, and
both the Bartok "Piano Concerto No. 3," and the "Concerto
for Orchestra," on the final May 2 concert.
Guests with the orchestra include Conductor Aldo Ceccato,
music director of the Hamburg Philharmonic and formerly
with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. He will be conducting
the April 30 and May 1 concerts. Violinist Ani Kavafian, a
native of Royal Oak, will be making her Ann Arbor debut on
April 30 with the Bruch concerto. A former pupil at the
University-affiliated Interloeb~en National Music, Camp,

Kavafian is the winner of many prestigious string prizes.
Also, an array of internationally known soloists will be on
hand for the May 1 production of Rossini's "Stabat Mater,"
including Faye Robinson, Katherine Ciesinski, John
Gilmore, and John Cheek.
Of course, the special treat of the week should be soprano
Judith Blegen's opening night concert. Appearing earlier this
year opposite Luciano Pavarotti on PBS in Donizetti's
"Elixir of Love," (which will be performed in English on
April 23 by the Western Opera Theater at the Power Center),
Blegen displayed her captivating stage presence and com-
pelling artistry.
THE FINAL MAY 2 concert is both a tribute and a reunion
for pianist Gyorgy Sandor and the orchestra. Sandor, a
student of Bartok in their native Hungary and currently a
professor at the School of Music, premiered the monumental
"Piano Concerto No. 3," with the Philadelphia Orchestra in
1946, shortly after the composer's death. They also made the
first recording of the piece. There could be no more fitting
way to end the year long international Bartok Festival and
the May Festival than with such a definitive performance of
Bartok's music by a conductor who is a fellow countryman
and a contemporary and a pianist who is a former student
and the recipient of the Grand Prix du Disque for recording
the complete piano literature of Bartok.

(Continued from Page 8)
certainly polished, but she's toocool.
We depend on her to link this production
together but she doesn't have the spirit.
Her rapport with Giza is very effective,
but she never deals with the character
*face to face until the end: All their early
communication is through letters and
phone calls, which are read or spoken
§6raight put to the audience..
iNanc Heusel, on the other hand, is
perfect as Giza, the poised sister. The
cbncern, the elegance-with her
eferything is as it should be. Paula is
one of those delightfully malicious Eve
Baxterish roles but Kendra Chopcian
only boringly bats her eyelashes a few

times and Victor is hers. No fun. And H.
D. Cameron as the corpulent Victor is a
bit too obvious about sticking his pad-
ded stomach out, but he does portray
the character in an appropriately
dislikable fashion.
One word about Phylis Ward Fox as
Mousie; she is delightful here as usual,
as Ersike's meek next door neighbor,
who unleased, will gladly tell you the
story about who her husband kicked her
out without a stitch of clothing or will

meow happily at your doorstep as she
does at Ersike's. Fox played a wonder-
ful bitch in Table Manners earlier this
year, and here she's no less enjoyable
- a completely maleable performer.
