MONDAY 8 MAY 1995 THE API It Arts Entertainment Edited by LOUISE ADLER its mm MlMtee Reviews Fester keeps groove alive TODAY'S Highlights Patience Stale theatre, 7.30pm Anthony Warlow makes hie -long-awaited return to the Australian Opera to star as Grosvenor opposite Gilbert and Sullivan stalwart Dennis Olsen as Bunthorne. The production also features Heather Begg as Lady Jane and Christine Douglas as Patience the milkmaid, with Tom Woods conducting the State Orchestra narrator, and to India, but to another westerner, a British survivor of the old Raj, who provides the seasoned comments of an old hand. These usefully temper the newcomer's naivety and enthusiasm. One of the delights of the performance is to become aware of just how subtly Ramsay shifts from character to character. It is not simply a matter of accent, but of intonation, body language, gesture or posture.

Sometimes merely a slump of the shoulders signals a different character. We are beguiled in part by a blurring of the line between actor and persona, not In this case due to a lack of skill but to a deliberate candor and a persistent style of Ramsay's Accidental Mystic gives us something to think about, not only the religious belief that is both logical and poetic, a reconcep-tualislng and merging of things that western thought has separated into compartments of science and religion, but the sheer skill with which these ideas have been presented. Natural horn Wk Picture: JEFF BUSaV er contribution was a reworking or his String Quartet No. 9 into a string orchestra sonata. Typically, the piece's five segments are inter-relat ed, passages of mild aleatoric music-making permeate the score, the methods of sound production move from the orthodox as far as the mod: erately adventurous, and emotional content is! not as important as the presentation of a series of sound-tableaux: outback-alienation mood-music, although effectively achieved and unmistakeably speaking Sculthorpe's vivid musical language.

Finally, Wie players gave a thorough working-over to Bartok's Divertimento. There was little relaxation of the piece's taut angularity, rather, Tognetti and his colleagues attacked the two ouer movements with a sort of relentless insistence on highlighting the 'composer's intermeshed tring lines land the harmonic clashes that are produced through his discord-rich vocabulary. It was exciting to hear and watch, but the final bar came as a relief after such a white-hot performance that belied the composition's title and in the context of the composer's output its benign character. v' TESSA BIRNIE'S recital at the -Malverfci campus of. Caulfield Grammar signalled the resurrection Of a body that, the pianist inaugurated 30 years jago, but held its last Melbourne concert in 1974: The Australian (Society, for Keyboard Music.

The revival this year includes future performances by John O'Donnell and Anthony Halllday. The program featured composers whose piano literature Birnie knows more than most, in particular Haydn and Schubert: she has performed their complete keyboard works an extraordinary feat, considering the amount of music involved. On this night she played Haydn's minor Variations and Schubert's last piano sonata In flat, as well as a large part (13 of the 20 pieces) of Schumann's AUmmblatter, Op. 124.. This was serious and controlled playing, at its most effective in the veiled passion of the sonata's slow movement and the variations' occasional glimmers of optimism.

The pianist's approach was notable for the absence of trlvialising or making overmuch of the music's juxtaposition of contrasts. If it had come from a young musician, up to the mark with novel insights, it would have struck listeners as heavy in outline and densely colored, notably in the style of pedalling; but, for my taste, Birnie's playing was a welcome reminder of how little dexterity and speed count for in interpretative skills, and how more important are qualities like commitment and intellectual coherence. GUNTHER SCHULLER is one of. America's foremost senior; musicians composer, conductor; writer, educator, publisher a kind of thoroughly modernist Leonard Bernstein. On Saturday night, he directed the Melbourne Symphony in five works, including two by Carl Ruggles (like his friend Charles Ives, ah uncompromising American individualist but without his colleague's volatility and injections of popular color), and Schuller's own recent Pulitzer Prize-winning Of Reminiscences and Reflections: Both Ruggles pieces come from that limited number of the composer's best-known works, Men and Mountains and Sun-treader.

They progress with a stark and admirably terse vigor, blocks of sound etched out on a vast orchestral fabric, -')' Schuller's work also had massive moments, particularly at either end. The most recent orchestral work by the Of evokes-his and his recently; deceased wife's musical lives togeth-' er; hence its final effect of jubilation, rather than of threnody, v. The night's focal point came, with the Russian composer Sofia Gubai-dulina's Seven Words (referring to the last utterances of Christ on the cross) involving two soloists: the cello of David Pereira, and Scottish musician James' Crabb's accordion Gubai-dulina's representation of an organ, apparently used because the piece refers to Heinrich Schutz's -sacred oratorio on the same theme. This is, considering its country of origin, an extraordinary essay in musical mysticism, notable for the original and demanding use of Crabb's instrument, which for many of us probably holds uhforgettable if outdated' associations with Young Talent Time. The Accidental Mystic: kobin Ramsay is a latter-day strolling minstrel.

Jazz Fetter. Bennetts Lane, Thursday. ADRIAN JACKSON BEFORE HIS success in last year's National Jazz Saxophone Awards, tenor saxophonist Julien Wilson was best known (and only in some circles on the Melbourne music scene) as a piember of David Tolley's spontaneous improvisation ensemble, That, where he showed real flair for intuitive improvising in an on-the-edge context. Having formed his own group, Wilson now seems more intent on playing material, including some of the standard jazz repertoire, that will allow him to relax and have a little fun on the stand. -I The opening number was nothing more complicated than a medium-tempo blues, on which Wilson played enough familiar blues licks to sound appropriately soulful, but also employed enough surprises twisting phrases, dissonance, growls and woofs to keep his solo interesting.

His partners, organist Tim Neal and drummer Andrew Swann, laid down a superb, in-the-pocket groove beneath the saxophonist's lines. Neal, best known for his work with Paul Williamson's Hammond Combo, played in essentially the same style here. Producing a rich, full-bodied sound in the classic Jimmy Smith mode, he maintained a steady groove and soloed in a logical manner that made liberal use of bluesy flourishes. Most of the music followed this pattern, Neal and Swann laying down an appealing groove, while Wilson revelled in it, then started stretching at it, his sax tone changing from smooth to hoarse as he went. He is still a young player in the process of refining his playing style, put his essential musical Instincts do set Wilson apart as not only a very capable saxophone player, but also a genumely interesting Improviser as weU as an appealingly exuberant -Possibly his most satisfying playing of the night came in the ballad You Don't Know What love Is, where the organist set up a dark, moody atmosphere and Wilson played an understated solo that was full of subtle allusions to the theme.

For a couple of numbers in the second set (an original theme and a version of John Scofield's catchy Take Les), another outstanding youngster, clarinettist Chris Tanner, sat in. This was a quite different situation to his regular band, Allan Browne's' New Orleans Rascals, but his playing here displayed the same uninhibited qualities, and the combination of clarinet and organ proved effective, if somewhat exotic.

THOMSON EXCEPT THAT HE doesn't sing, Robin Ramsay is really a latter-day strolling minstrel. The entire world is his beat, and he tells stories with sources in a number of cultures, particularly those of India and Australia. His present persona Is light years away from the one we saw here last year, that of Henry Lawson, but it is more, than simply a fashionable New Age discovery of ancient beliefs that animates his travellers and his vivid impressions of India.

So familiar is the experience of West discovering East that it really requires' an especially good script and' performance to make it fresh again. iThe Accidental Mystic fortunately succeeds on both counts: Barbara Ramsay's text is Impressionistic: and suggestive, while Robin Ramsay's performance, understated and Instantly draws the audience in, wanting to share more of the experiences he dramatises. The' first half of the show is essentially a skilful travelogue that will particularly delight those who have themselves visited India. Its tone Is a mixture of the affectionate and the critical as we hear of the amusing, maddening and sometimes enchanting impressions of Indian hotels, post offices and Ramsay recreates the freshness and newness of the impressions of a first-time visitor, conveying just how curious everything seems to the newly arrived westerner. The persona Ramsay adopts is that of an Australian school teacher, taking a holiday in India.

This introduces two of the structural themes of a piece: the teacher is himself to be taught he becomes a student of Indian religion as well as everyday life and his. journey is one of enlightenment as well as physical travel. Yet in the end we find he has assumed the role of teacher again, for his story also enlightens us. What makes it effective is the lack of preaching and the retention of subtle shades of Western scepticism. Ramsay speaks to us as a learner, not an authority.

The emphatic certainty of belief comes not from Ramsay himself, but from one of the characters he dramatises. It Is the voice of an elderly woman, encountered in a railway waiting room, that enlivens us with an account of karma, reincarnation, and the circle of time, the ages of gold, silver, copper and Iron, and the promise of a return to the golden age. This constitutes the second half of the show, by: which tune' we have been introduced not only to the Television Big-time are TV's GOPS ARE being replaced by docs.

Rebecca Rust cello, Davut -Apterjiam. Marco Donald To vey musicologist author and pianist, provides the surprise, in this CD with two strong, attractive works. He wrote Elegiac Variations, a poignant, even sombre work, in memory of a close cellist friend in 1909; the sonata is cheerfully Eastoral. Bridge's sonata; better nown, is from the same mould though with a strong sense of purpose. The CD's wide range of moods is completed by two Bridge miniatures, the romantic Melodle and the witty, high-spirited Scherzo.

Rust and Apter show the fruit of a decade's partnership in their i balance and sense of unity. Compiled by Greg Burchalk recording; Barney Zwartz, Tv Highlights Masterpiece: P.J.

CLIVE O'CONNELL HE GUEST FOR the Australian Chamber Orchestra in the current series, Anthony Hal-stead, took part in the entire first part of Monday night's concert The eventual focus of all eyes as soloist in Mozart's. Horn Concerto No. 4, he also played the harpsichord continuo in three other works: Gluck's Dance of the Furies from. Orphee et Euridice, Torelli's Minor "Christmas" Concerto, and the middle baroque master Biber's entertaining suitetone poem, Battalia.

Last week, the Melbourne Musicians played the Gluck dance creditably, but the ACO has a habit of leaving competition in its wake. Its string texture came across lashing clarity and director Tognetti had taken great pains to integrate dynamic contrasts and accents. It was yet another virtuoso display by this remarkable group. After some relief in Torelli's gently paced concerto grosso, the ACO outlined Biber's seven-section picture of military life, complete with pseudo-' drunken musicians staggering, playing different melodies simultaneously with extraordinary control; a kind of pizzicato battle of the low strings, mimicking cannon shots; also a pre- operators new Hope Viewpoint PHILIPPA HAWKER should be able to continue working together in the operating room, they can put their differences aside.

The thought of retirement is unbearable to him: "If I can't operate, I'll die," he tells the head of the' department. He and his wife, however, seem to get on. Unlike where the medical procedures seem to be running on permanent fast forward, Chicago Hope takes a little more time in the operating theatre, and savors the explanation of surgical techniques.

Operations are depicted in more loving detail, and a woman with a brain tumor Is given a matter-of-fact account of a procedure with a name that says It all: full-face degloving. Tonight's Introduction made up of the pilot and the first episode is full-fledged male melodrama. Tomorrow, night's, episode is a little more offbeat, It hat a touch of Picket Fences, another ihow created by Chicago Hope's David E. whose credits also include LA Law. Picket Fences set in a small town, and It Is a mix of social issues, sentimentality and black comedy, in a sometimes successful, sometimes uncomfortable combination.

An added attractive feature of this work was the opportunity it gave to see these young players; doing the unexpected. In spite of their vitality and musical appeal, often you get the feeling that the; well-disciplined, black-clad group have sublimated their personalities in the cause of their music. A piece of frivolity like Battalia broadens an audience'sper-ception of the chamber orchestra.

Halstead explained his instrument and how it functions, illustrating the natural horn's limitations but in no way apologising for them. Quite right, too: what we heard was what Mozart would have expected from the Instrument of his time not the perfectly even timbre that a valved instrument produces throughout its range but a more "uneverr sound with less stentorian power than the horn we hear today. Halstead's reputation as the most distinguished performer of this period instrument was well substantiated by his self-possessed and infectious reading of this popular concerto, throughout which he maintained the work's ebullient nature, but at the same1 time kept one guessing as to how the familiar notes would emerge.
