VA. Czech Quartet to open Chamber Music season By Martha Smith It seems incredible that fall is just around the corner. That means Charleston's cultural season will once again be off at a full gallop, with various organizations soliciting memberships and season tickets being sold. It promises to be an exciting year. The Broadway play series is an excellent one if reports from a source close to National Shows are correct. Among other shows in the hopper for this seasons are Tony-award-winning "Applause," "Sleuth," and John Raitt '-making a return appearance in either "Kismet" or "Kiss Me, Kate." B e c a u s e Charleston ,is blessed with so many per- f o r m i n g organizations- Chamber Music Society, Symphony Orchestra, Community Music Assn., Kanawha Players and Light Opera Guild--this column will spend the next few weeks exploring the major groups and the entertainment they have in store this season. This week we'll take a look at the Charleston C h a m b e r Music Society which brings the absolute best in string music to this town each year. On the heels of last year's smashing successes with Pro Musica, the Tokyo String Quartet and the Fine Arts String Quartet, the announced scheduk for the up-coming season looks to be equally, outstanding. The first concert on Oct. 14 will highlight the Smetana String Quartet, the first Czechoslovakian ensemble to appear here. This group, which performs over TOO concerts on tour each year, has reached a high international prominence in the last 12 years and should set a very high standard for concerts to follow during the season. Perhaps the most exciting event of the series will be the second concert, featuring the Deller Consort. Alfred Deller, r e n o w n e d counter-tenor sings with, a group of six singers and players which include lute and guitar. This spicy variety in the typical all-string offering, promises to be a real experience for the audience. Deller's group specializes in music of the Renaissance and Baroque eras. They will come to us Nov. 4 from appearances at festivals and concerts throughout Europe. A duo provides yet another change of pace for concert number three, sehed- Current movies Downtown CAPITOL-- "The War Between Men and Women," with Barbara Harris and Jack Lemmon.

In one ear . uled for Feb. 24. Joerg Demus, pianist and Josef Suk, violinist compose what has been critically acclaimed as a "phenomenal" duo. Both artists are also well-known soloists. Of interest to local arts patrons is the fact that Suk is the great-grandson of Antonin Dvorak. He has appeared, with all the world's major symphony orchestras. The fourth concert of the season will be March 18 and will highlight the Czech Nonet. This columnist 'recalls with a chuckle Peter Godfrey's announcement of this booking. At that time he admonished the audience not to confuse the performance with "No, No Nonet." Groans followed this typically-awful Godfrey pun. Appearance of the nonet constitutes yet another .first for the chamber society. The ensemble includes violin, viola, cello, double bass, flute, oboe, clarinet, bassoon, and French horn. The final concert will be that of the Borodin String Quartet on April 14. The quarter has appeared previously in the chamber music series and received great praise. The group hails from the Soviet Union and is regarded by experts as the perfect string quartet. A truly fine, novel season has been put together by directors of the Charleston Chamber Music Society. It is a diverse series with ev- erything from a duo to a nonet, with the marvelous Deller Consort in between. It promises to be an exceptionally triumphant year for the hard-working chamber group, and one which will be financially as well as culturally pleasing.
