APPARENTLY on his way to a one-man Beethoven cycle for Colum-
bia, Bruno Walter offers a new waxing of the Ninth Symphony,
with the New York Philharmonic, the Westminister Ch'oir and four
alleged soloists (Album 900, LP SL 156).
A super-fine recording job is wasted on the Philharmonic's tones,
which range from tinny to nasal. We find both Allegro and Scherzo
overblown and loose, while the semi-unperformable finale degenerates
into a disorganized, ding-dong decibel contest between orchestra and
chorus. That the chorus usually triumphs is not all to the bad, con-
sidering the Philharmonic's occasionally wretched outpourings.
High spot of the set is Walter's genuinely eloquent Adagio, but
his orchestra remains stubbornly undistinguished throughout.
Among the soloists, only the bass, Mack Harrell, approaches com-
petence, but his jealous colleagues take revenge by out-shrieking
him at every opportunity granted them by Beethoven-and at
some that aren't.
With the warning that our opinion of Walter's Chorale seems to
be a minority one, we suggest the aging but venerated Weingartner-
Vienna performance (Columbia 227), and add our voice to the many
demanding that RCA Victor condescend to release a Ninth by its
greatest interpreter-Arturo Toscanini.
M OZART'S wonderful Piano Concerto No. 21 is the subject of an LP
effort by Robert Casadesus, with Munch leading the New York
An above-average recording is matched by generally fine play-
ing on the part of soloist and orchestra strings; it is kinder to pass
in mournful silence over the fumbling efforts of the Philharmonic's
winds. Recommended especially is Casadesus' excellent presenta-
tion of the lovely second movement.
But in no sense is the current version comparable to a superb
Schnabel-Sargent job for HMV and domestic Victor. Schnabel's finely
controlled poetry and the sensitive support of the London Philhar-
monic-than which there is none wiser in the ways of Mozart--make
this set the choice for those willing to sacrifice the mechanical advan-
tages of LP for musical considerations.

AT HOME in a familiar item, Koussevitsky and the Boston Sym-
phony provide the finest Tchaikovsky Fourth obtainable. With their
traditional polish and incomparable tones, the Bean-town boys follow
the leader through an obviously virtuoso performance, avoiding most
of the usual temptations to exaggerate. Recording is faithful, but
tending slightly to the over-ponderous.

EVER SINCE 1933, Charlie Barnet has been recording the kind of
music that the public wants to hear; but his latest records show
something more than just a realization of the people's choice.
Over The Rainbow backed by Pan Americana (Capital, 57-744) indicate
that the 'Mad Mab' may be directing the top band in the country
Rainbow is altogether too much to listen to in one sitting; the
striking (uncredited) arrangement is filled with interest for the musi-
ally educated and should keep even the unpracticed ear perked for the
full three minutes. Barnet's band is very well balanced and gets a tre-
mendous sound from smooth ensemble work and excellent color con-
trast in the arrangement. Pan is a mediocre tune of South America
vintage. The rhythm and overall picture painted by the band are not
unlike the Gillespiean Manteca.
University students remaining
in Ann Arbor over the Thanksgiv-
ing holidays did not fare as well
as University of Illinois stay-at-
schools, who were offered free
turkey dinners by a campus res-
taurant in Champaign.
The restaurant proprietor made
400 turkey meals available at no
cost to hungry student consumers.
"I know how miserable it is to
be away from home on a holiday,"
he explained. "Maybe this will
ease that feeling."
The dinners were eagerly de-
voured by the students, who added
the proprietor to their list of
things to be thankful for.
Local students received news of
the free dinners with incredulity,
later replaced by a sour view of
the Ann Arbor scene.
One disgruntled student gave
vent to indignant feelings by send-
ing the Daily a clipping of the Ill-
inois incident on which he scrib-
bled "It can't happen here."
