The Romantic movement in symphonic movement reached its climax and its exhaustion in Mahler's music. Mahler attempted to portray the totality of nature on his symphonic canvases— the mystery of growth, the violence of storms, the irrepressible energy of life. It is small wonder that this resulted in vast musical expressions that inundated all established symphonic forms. After a more or less concentional First symphony, Mahler's Second was a vast work, including voices, that lasted an hour. His third is longer, lasting exactly 100 minutes. After a short Fourth symphony, he brought out the Fifth, another massive musical giant that lasts 69 minutes. It was not only the length of these works, but their musical complexity that baffled Vienna of pre-World War I vintage. Mahler just wouldn't do, they decided. Now, 50 years later, Mahler's time has arrived, and he is more and more being appreciated 43 the great precursor of the 20th century. Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic have been unusually successful in their performances of Mahler, both in the -concert hall and for the recording microphone. This recording of the Fifth symphony is in the same vein as the successful Third sympoo- ny recorded in 1962, a searching, sharp-edged reading that brings into focus all the tumult and the energy that Mahler felt and which he embodied in his music. The Fifth is a gigantic piece of music in every sense— in its length, in its massive orchestrations, and in the wealth of HE 6-2503 NOW THRU WED.

Bernstein's version is the most successful yet committed to discs, and one feels that without the stereo medium much of this vital performance would be lost. The orchestra plays well, but the most impressive thing about the album is the sound. This album contains some of the cleanest and most vivid sound that Columbia has yet produced. The big orchestral climaxes are captured with clarity, and with quieter passages are equally effective. Altogether, this is a recording that Mahler fanciers will cherish. The Fifth symphony takes up three of the four sides of the album. The fourth side is devoted to a performance of Mahler's morbid little song cycle "Kindertotenlieder." Jennie Tourel is a superior soloist, and her feeling for the music helps to make this version among the best available, SIBELIUS: SYMPHONY NO. 2 - New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra; Thomas Schippers, conductor (Columbia Stereo, MS 6535). The Second is the most popular of Sibelius' symphonies, and there are a number of first- rate versions on the market. This latest issue features Thomas Schippers, a gifted young (33 years old) conductor who is gaining more stature every year. He leads the New York orchestra in a broadly Romantic performance of this majestic work, somewhat disjointed and not as lean and taut as most.

CHAVEZ: PIANO CONCERTO - Eugene List, piano: Vienna Slate Opera Orchestra; Carlos Chavez, conductor (Westminster S t e reo, WST 17030). Mexican composer Ca r 1 o s Chavez completed this piano concerto in 1941, and it owes much to modern musical ideas and techniques. There is much more to it than lhat, however, and a number of critics have commented upon its non-European, essentially Indian qualilies. Although Chavez' ideas and orchestral colorations arc original there is a primilive power lhal is imaginatively handled. It is not easy music for Ihe listener, and it is difficult for Ihe performer as well. Pianist Eugene List was the soloist at the original performance in New York in 1942, and he is the soloist for this recording. The composer himself is the conductor, and thus we have what should be a definitive performance. The orchestra is well-handled, and the recording is clean and brilliantly reproduced.

(AP) Patrolman Alexander Adams Jr. "covered" his own resignation from the police force. He submitted the resignation to the City Commission then wrote the story for his new em- Courier. "Dimension '3' " carries sler- , eo one step farther by adding | a "phantom speaker" right in the middle of the sound spectrum. The ordinary stereo record offers a left channel and a right channel, an achievement which is remarkable enough when one realizes that both channels are recorded into one infinitesimal groove. This recording takes it one step farther. There is a third channel — or what sounds like a third channel — right between the regular right and left channels. The listener actually hears sound from three sources, even though he has only the customary right and left speakers. And the phantom "third chan- ine!" is an equally distinct and equally separate sound source —at least thai is what il sounds like to the car. This record offers a persuasive demonstration of the new technique, with Enoch Light and his Light Brigade furnishing the music. There are a dozen pieces, most of them old favorites, and expressly tailored to show off the new recording technique. By using different combinations of instruments for each of the three "channels" the recording engineers have a record that may start a new trend in (he industry. In one composition, for example — "All I Dp Is Dream of 1 You" — the listener will find clear . technique opens all sorts of nossi- bililies, if handled intelligently and imaginatively, and it will be interesting to see what the rest of the industry does with Meanwhile, for a real novelty, plus some remarkably clear and vivid sound, this record offers a fascinating experience. The music is supposedly based ; upon the sort of instrumentation ; and rhythmic patterns actually i used by the Norsemen themselves, brought up to date and ' given a cinematographic sheen. i It is mostly brass and per- i cussion, composed by Dusan I Uadic and played, by a 65-pieco i orchestra. : QUINCY JONES EXPLORES THE MUSIC OF MANCINI (Mercury) — Quincy Jones is a young contemporary composer, arranger and band leader.

For Ihis disc, ho chose 12 pieces by Henry Mancini — most of them recorded for the cinema — and offers his own arrangements of them, as performed by his own band. Most of Mancini's works have been rearranged for faster tempo, and for more exotic ornamentation, but by and large the effect is pleasin™ ;incl different | enough to be interesting.

How I Learned To Stop Worrying And Lore The Bomb NOT To All Property Owners Residing in Ward Three Outside the City Limits of Lake Charles!! An election has been called for June 16, 1964, by the Ward Three Fire Protection. District to consider a 3 mill maintenance lax for fire protection equipment and maintenance. This election is vitally important to all residents of Ward Three outside the City Limits of Lake Charles. In the April 30, 1963, Bond Election you, the voters, approved a $300,000 bond issue. For the capital outlay and procurement of fire equipment. However, at that lime, the maintenance millage failed to pass by one vote. It is absolutely necessary to have a 3 mill maintenance millage in order to maintain the equipment and services that will be provided with the $300,000 bond issue previously approved. Only that amount necessary to implement this program will be used. The proceeds of the previously approved bond issue will be used to purchase two new completely equipped pumper trucks with oversized water tanks, installation of new fire hydrants, and equipment necessary to implement the facilities. The maintenance tax that you are now being asked to vote on will be used for operating and maintenance costs. The 3 mill maintenance tax based on a $17 million dollar assessment will provide approximately $47,000 a year. As to the individual property owners, a 3 mill tax would mean $3.00 per $1,000 assessed valuation. The ward will receive the advantage of an already approved fire protection system as a Joint service agreement with the City of Lake Charles has been reached. All newly purchased fire equipment would remain the property of Ward 3, however, it would be housed in the City Fire Stations one North of town, and one South of town, and manned by professionally trained firemen of the City Fire Department, in order to achieve the maximum fire protection benefits for Ward 3 as rapidly as possible. The election for the maintenance millage involves only those residents of Ward 3 outside the City Limits of Lake Charles. All qualified electors are asked to note the date of this election and to vote their choice.
