G4-Palm Beach Post-Times, Sunday, December 5, 1976 On Wednesday, Music Lovers Will Have a Choice Texaco-Metropolitan Opera Broadcasts 1976-77 Schedule The Spanish Ministry of Tourism and Information sponsors this nationwide tour, combining the essence of indigenous Spanish dance with the colorful, tempestuousViflounce of the flamenco, the sensual rhythm of the bolero and the flamboyant beat of the jota. Tickets, at $10, $8 and $6, are on sale at the auditorium box office, Sears, Richards and the Phoenix record shops in Stuart and Tequesta. Florida Atlantic University (FAU) opens its Artist Series with a piano recital by pianist Gregory Schatten TuesdajAt 8:30 p.m. in the University Theatre. Admission is $4 for adults and $2 for children 12 and under. For reservations, call 395-5100, Ext. 2531. Civic Music members a reminder. The 1976-77 season opens Thursday at 8:30 p.m. with the Aulos Wind Quintet and pianist Etsuko Tazaka at the West Palm Beach The Aulos Wind Quintet will open with the Schoenberg Quintet, Op. 26. After intermission they will play the Rossini Quartet in D major, No. 5, and will conclude with the Beethoven Quintet in E-flat major for Piano and Winds, Op. 16. Gloria Davis, pianist and a recent recorder of an interesting new record album "Gloria Davis In Concert" will play a benefit recital for the Ballet Arts Foundation Friday at 8:30 p.m. at the Royal Poinciana Playhouse in Palm Beach. Ticket information is available by calling 842-7631. Ticket prices start at $2.50 and are tax-deductible. Movie and TV fans might even catch a glimpse of or shake hands with the evening's honorary chairman, actor Burt Reynolds. "At Eight," fast becoming the Palm Beaches' most popular music series, will have mezzo-soprano Shirley Verrett gracing the stage at the West Palm Beach Auditorium Saturday at 8 p.m. Acclaimed as the leading singing actress on the operatic and concert stage,' Shirley Verrett's lustrous voice will include songs, operatic arias and spirituals by Rossini, Per-golesi, Strauss, Verdi and Mahler. Individual tickets to the fourth music "At Eight" concert are on sale at the auditorium box office, or by phoning 683-6012. Tickets are $5 to $15. Student tickets are $3. I can still feel the chills running down my spine when she sang Saint-Saens "Mon Coeur a ta Voix' from "Samson et Delilah." Perhaps she and Warren Wilson, her accompanist, will do it as an encore? The Metropolitan Opera is on the air again live from Lincoln Center in New York City, on radio from WPBR (1340) on your AM dial. Saturday afternoon is opera time for a good part of the community, so clip out the accompanying schedule, tape it to the radio and you're all set for the season at the Met.

Wednesday at 8 p.m., Regional Arts Productions will present violinist; Pinchas Zukerman with the Florida Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Pavle Despalj. Zukerman, who with his wife Eugenia are internationally known concert and recording artists, will play 'Lalo's "Symphonie Espagnole" with the orchestra. The balance of the program will contain Karl Maria von Weber's "Overture to Der Freischutz" and the Beethoven "Symphony No. 4 in B-flat major, Op. 60." Tickets, at $5, ?8 and $11, are available at the West Palm Beach Auditorium. Student tickets are $3. The program promises to be one of sheer melodic beauty with the prodigious Israeli violinist Zukerman playing the Lalo. Leonid Hambro, pianist, recording artist, humorist and popularizer of "Happy Birthday, Ludwig," commemorating Beethoven's 200th birthday, will appear in concert Wednesday at 8:45 p.m. at the Society of the Four Arts in Palm Beach. Hambro's program, "Gershwin World," an evening of classic jazz, will run the spectrum of "Ger-shwiniana" from his first published piano piece, "Rialto Ripples" to "Three Preludes" and "Rhapsody in Blue." Deliberately eschewing a printed program, Hambro said he prefers to let the spontaneity of the music carry him through the program. I remember Leonid Hambro when he worked at WQXR radio in New York and when he worked as "straight man" to Victor Borge. Palm Beach-ers are in for an evening of popular music set in a classic frame. Tickets are free to Four Arts members, $10 to nonmembers. All seats are reserved and are available at the Four Arts office in Palm Beach while they last.

The quality will surpass that of any other similar-sized city's offerings within the state. Of course, it won't be perfect, but it will be a genuine musical experience, and for an art form as demanding as opera, that is an astounding achievement. True, he has some impressive talent from the Metropolitan Opera Company and other notable centers helping him tonight. However, that is simply another compliment to him, since their being here is a consequence of his initiative, and hard work. Sure, you might get the wrong impression if you only see him screaming at an orchestra, stamping his feet, banging his baton or arguing with stage directors that opera also contains music. In fact, the screaming and the nonsense merely disguise a much more comprehensive and vital charm, the charm of a man whose dedication is in harmony with his tremendous gifts. He really cares about the music, and if a rehearsal is not going well it bothers him. For a musician to talk to Dr. Csonka about music is a privilege, an occasion to be anticipated, then a memory secured. Young musicians have benefited enormously from his activities, particularly from his work in presenting special operatic productions at condominiums in South Florida. His involvement with music in general and opera in particular has been single-minded since his youth in Vienna, and we are all the benefactors. .--Lvalue plus!

But in a flash, before the question could be properly formulated, Petronius the Prompter, a ventriloquist's dummy created by Miss De Paul who else? had leaped to her rescue. "Yes," Petronius said, "Miss De Paul does have a private life." "I am a positive person, even aggressive," she conceded. "I never feel so well as in the middle of a battle. I don't take no for an answer, but I am also a nice person. I am an unusually gifted woman, but you can't write that without having me sound like a pompous ass." Wrong. Unless she happens to be a sorceress with the ability to put skeptical reporters under her bewitching spell, the judgment is those truths are self-evident. Any confession to the contrary would have been unworthy of her. Despite all her other interests, the subject this week is opera. "I think opera is the greatest of all the art forms," she said, "since it combines so many things such as musicianship, voice, stage presence, movement, acting, looks . . ." It was interesting to hear her count off the demands of opera, demands that so easily could be translated as Judith De Paul's attributes. If her creativity continues to radiate so profusely, many of us are likely to bask in its warmth for a long time to come. - ALAN JENKINS iA l 'mLUE VALUEP I 6So 3.44 1.88 VALUE PLUS! 1.87 SUPER LOW DISCOUNT PRICE SCOTCH PINE CHRISTMAS TREE 2 FT.
