sr. Rediands Daily Facts Saturday, July 20, 1963-3 ccietii JUSS JOSEPHINE REAY Society Editor DOWNTOWN REDLANDS 'MIKADO' WIG FROM JAPAN - Marilyn Fitzgerald (left), star of the Rediands Bowl production of "The Mikado" July 26 and 27, receives from Alfa Warsawsko Shepard, noted dancer, the geisha wig that Mme. Shepard brought from Japan. The wig, worth more than $1,000, will be worn by Miss Fitzgerald as Yum-Yum, in the Rediands Bowl production. In the 1960 production of 'The Mikado," Miss Fitzgerald was cast os another of the "Three Little Girls From School," Pifti-Sing. Barry Rumbles will return fo play the title role as will comedians Hugh Folkins and Al Newell as Pooh-Bah and Ko-Ko respectively. Pianist Daniel Pollack Stirs Bow Audience With Bravura Playing Pianist Daniel Pollack literally dazzled his Rediands Bowl audience last evening with a display of electrifying technique and tremendous power. The Bowl season is only two weeks old and this was the second solo recital to draw a crowd that was not only large but quiet and attentive. Instead of the usual 2500 or so who have turned out in former seasons on recital nights there must have been nearly 4,000 people present both last evening and Tuesday evening when tenor Brian Sullivan was featured. Already recognized as a young "giant of the keyboard," Mr. Pollack made an indelible impression as a skillful and polished technician. His fingers are fleet and sure — his playing clear and firm. He opened his program with the magnificent Toccata and Fugue in D minor by Bach, one of his most famous works for organ and transcribed both for orchestra and for piano. The grandiose style and nobiUty of this moving work was powerfully portrayed by the pianist who drew a majestic symphony of sound from his instrument. With his interpretation of the Beethoven Sonata in E Flat Major, Op. 31, No. 3, there was introduced a suspicion that was to increase as the program contin- " ued. This concerned the one quality in Mr. Pollack's playing that detracted from the content of the work at hand — a tendency to speed. This was noted again in the Chopin group which included the F. Major Ballade, three Etudes and the C Sharp muior Nocturne. The Etude Op. 10, No. 11 ("Aeolian Harp"), for instance, is marked Allegretto, but was played almost Allegro Vivace and while there was tenderness in the Ballade, the passion verged on the hysteric. The Chopin group also included the Etudes Nos. 5 and 11 ("Winter Wind") of Op. 25. One could not help but marvel, though, at such a richly equipped performer. Thanks, too, is due to Mr. Pollack for such joys as his choice of Debussy Preludes — not the favorites selected to beguile an audience for whom he was playing for tlie first time, but some of the less familiar gems. There were two from the first set of Preludes, "Le sons et les parfums" and the nebulous, drifting "Violcs": and two from the second set, "General Lavine — eccentric", crisp and exquisitely phrased, and "Feux d'.\rti- fice" with which Mr. Pollack lighted fireworks of many shapes with dehcacy and with bursts of color. The demanding Prokoficff "Stalingrad" Sonata, No. 7, closed the program and in Mr. Pollack it had a supreme interpreter, one who brought out its power, its crispness, its intricate innovations and its IjTical contrasts. The work requires the strength of a Goliath and the spirit of a David and the artist obviously enjoyed the challenge it offered. He returned for two encores. They were the Scriabin Nocturne for Left Hand Alone and the Chopin Polonaise in A Flat Major, Op. 53., the latter played so stirringly on his TV appearance last Sunday mornmg but taken last evening at breathtaking speed. One thing is certain concerning this remarkable young artist. He is an exciting musical personality definitely on his way to the top and as the refinements ui his musicianship are acquired he may well be among the few "great" pianists of our day. Speaking of the current needs of Rediands Bowl during intermission time was Mrs. Carl C. Bank, a member of the board of directors of Rediands Community Music Association. Jlrs. Bank's well chosen words emphasized the important role of the individual in the continuance of the summer series and urged each to do his part in assurmg its continued success. Rediands Evening Kiwanis club provided ushers last evening. Next Tuesday evening's concert will feature Beryl Senofsky, violinist, as solist with the Rediands Bowl Symphony Orchestra, Harry Farbman, directing. Herbert Horns 5ack In Rediands For Six Weeks Spending six weeks in Rediands while he completes work for his doctorate degree is Herbert Horn with .Airs. Horn and their two little daughters, Alice, nearly 6, and Margaret, soon to be 3 years old. Until a year ago, the Horns were residents of Rediands. The Horn family is occupying the home of Mrs. Elizabeth Voel- Imy, 81 North Buena Vista street, while Mrs. Voellmy is spending the summer months in Switzerland. Tomorrow evening at 8:30 in Hancock auditorium on the U.S.C. campus, Mr. Horn will present his final doctoral recital, to feature an all-Bartok program. Mr. Horn, a former member of the University of Rediands school of music faculty, has been for the past year on the music faculty at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu. In the fall he will assume his new position as head of the piano department at St. Andrew's college in Laurinburg, N.C. It IS rushing matters to invite a man you have just met to a concert, the theater or a party. You may ask a male friend if you've known him a long time.
