Sinopoli opens
UMS season

By Rebecca Chung
Classical music lovers should
look forward to an exciting
avening tonight. Giuseppi Sino-
poli, who will lead the
Philharmonia Orchestra in the
University Musical Society's
opening concert of the season, is
perhaps the enfant terrible of
conducting. Critics worldwide
disagree in their opinion of his
talent, which has sparked
reactions from "cogently presen-
ted and magnificently played"
for his Mahler Second to what
another critic described as "his
maddening way of stretching
music on the rack" for his Verdi's
Macbeth.
One thing is certainly true:
Sinopoli is no ordinary conductor
(if any conductors are "ordin-
ary"). Born in Venice into a
decidedly unmusical family, he
began his music education at
twelve. At seventeen, he entered
the Venice music conservatory as
an "extracurricular." Upon high
school graduation, he also en-
rolled in medical school at Padua

to console his father. He earned
top honors and a license to
practice psychiatry (which he has
never used), while simultan -
eously continuing his music
studies.
Sinopoli is decidedly uncon-
ventional. For example, he told
Opera Review that he refuses to
conduct Mozart because "I've
heard so many bad performances
of Mozart that I don't want to hear
others under my own baton." He
is also an intense intellectual,
adding in that same interview
that he loves music because "it
gives me the possibility of trying
to understand human existence."
This has caused some to label
hm "eccentric" and "vulgar."
Nonetheless, his music has wide
appeal with at least two of his
recordings, his Mahler Second
and Schubert "Unfinished"/Men-
delssohn "Italian" (both on
Deutsche Grammophon) selling
well.
On the program tonight is the
Schubert, as well as Bruckner's
Seventh. For tickets, contact the
University Musical Society at
Burton Tower (764-2538)

Giuseppi Sinopoli, a bold new conducting talent, will conduct Schubert and Bruckner tonight at Hill Auditorium.
