Beethoven's third Tonora overture moved into a oear-hectk state during its coda, from theccratag scale passages r- for strings onwards. Bat It was precise, rinnosK piaying, sympeonjcaiiy rreai-ed with no hlat of Us theatrical origins. The woit that did raise questions was Qte third synmbony of Ives. Allowing for the vagaries of the composer's manuscripts, this unaggressive piece the most immedmtety asslnUlaWe and eaaV -est to play of Ives major works is hard to accept on a large scale. In the version we were offered, all the Chicago strings participated and the conductor addressed himself to that formidable body almost exclusively.

What resulted was a lush, Mantovani-style Ives, in which the discords and clashing counterpoint were buried under a soothing, massive string timbre. Gilbert Chase wrote of the symphony's "restrained this reading struck me as unrestrainedly loquacious.

Brown snakes (called Kurra Murra) weave their way round the ghost gurQs, which are paint-. ed bright yellow.

Their eggs can still be found in thatcountry today and; Mr Riley said, are so heavy they take two hands to lift them.

GREG DALY'S ceramics are sensual and alive, reflecting the spirit of their maker. In bis latest collection this Australian potter, whose work is represented, throughout the world, combines a number of glazing techniques to achieve extravagant Imagery. Daly has used his knowledge of making, glazing and firing in a way that is unique, individual and incredibly rich.

The pieces range from small fine bowls, ornate vases to wall plaques and huge platters. Odor glows deeply when light plays on the surfaces. Daly works' wich light and uses lustres (gold and silver leaf and enamel); his decorative pieces are bold, metallic and attractive. Among the smaller porcelain bowls is a challenging use of lustre, a striking combination of cobalt blue and gold, bismuth and zinc Inside the small bowls the lustres are like oil slicks at sea, forming scenes and patterns, with 23 carat gold and silver leaf applique breaking the slick. These small bowls are meticulously and methodically thrown with splendid precision, the delicate glazing further enhances their classical symmetrical forms.

The larger platters have a cobalt blue base or a rich black tenmoku, with lustres, gold leaf and a splash of enamel-On each platter are abstract mysterious landscapes and shapes. On some of Daly's work the brush-stroked enamel oriental whim is a mismatch. The green enamel is a failed experiment on a few pieces and the delicacy lost On a pastel blue lustred vase it seems irrelevant and inappropriate, for example, a slight disappointment among his magnificent pieces. One grand, rounded pot has been thrown, then beaten out like an extended pregnant belly. This smooth, curvaceous spherical giant with subtle gold leaf reminds me of a female body, soft, yet firm.

You have to embrace it to feel the form bursting within. All the pieces repay close inspection. Daly has extended himself and his shapes and surfaces provide an interesting display. For those who like gallant, romantic craftsmanship and perfectly thrown pots, his impressive collection should not be missed. after fan at IILM VICTORIA has returned, flushed with success, from the -new frontiers it has been forg-' ing in America's wild west At Location Expo, a sort of geographical' bazaar or should that be bizarre? for international production held in Los Angeles last month.

Film Vic reports that business in the booth was sof brisk it had to set up a register to cope; with the overflow of queries. At last, count it had rung up 330 names. Whether they were genuinely ested in our state's stunning and varied scenery as backdrops to overseas pro- -ductions, or whether they were just queueing up to get their mitts on Film Vic's freebles showbags containing -production information. and souvenirs' (tasteful, we hope) remains to be seen. After Film Vic rep Graeme Wright gave away 300 give-aways in four hours, he had to ration them.

But word has it that as a direct result of Location Expo, a proposal for an $8-10 million mini-series, to be shot in Victoria, using main-. ly Victorian cast and crew, is under consideration. Not content with storming the States, Film Vic Is consolidating its profile with a' series of PR appointments in Britain and North America. THE scheduling at 10.35pm test night of 'Guns A Licence To Kill', Jo Pearson's first documentary for the Nine Network, raises some questions. If, as we were told, she had been working on it for three months, why was it rushed to air without benefit of property-edited preview tapes and advance publicity? The issue is hardly likely to go away, so what's a few days here or there? And if, as we were told, management deemed the topic so important it wanted to ensure all bases were covered, why was it screened so late? THE Australian Film, Television and Radio School is touting for business for another seminar this weekend.
