KtPuai.Ha CITY 22 The Arizona Republic O Phoenix, Mon., Nov. 3, 1969 Lute and guitar by Bream By DONAL HENAHAN New York Times Service NEW YORK - Although Andres Segovia would no doubt blanch at the thought, the patriarch of the classic guitar probably has done more to revive interest in the lute than any other performing musician of this century. Segovia has never been an enthusiast of the lute, fearing that an increase in its popularity among some guitarists could dissipate interest in his own instrument, whose own resurrection from the graveyard of forgotten instruments was accomplished only through his gentle fanaticism. "No man can serve two masters," Segovia once remarked of Julian Bream's double career as lutenist arid guitarist. But, blithely unaware that joint stewardship is impossible, Bream continues to perform superlatively well on both these difficult instruments. The Englishman turned to the lute after developing a strong classic-guitar technique, a technique that is almost perfectly applicable to Policeman hit by car Phoenix Police Sgt. William Copeland was injured late Saturday when he was struck : by a car in the 2800 block of W. Indian School, police reported. Copeland, who received the 1967 National Police Officer of the Year Award, was treated at Maryvale Hospital and Released early yesterday. 1 Capt. Al Edens said Copeland had just got off work !at Station 2, 2800 W. Indian School, and was crossing the • street north to south to get to his car when he was struck by an eastbound vehicle. The driver of the car, Wil- 'liam Garrett Kuzma, 25, of 2828 W. Coolidge, was jailed 'for investigation of driving while intoxicated and speed- •ing police said. the lute in spite of its important differences from the guitar. The result is lute-playing of a virtuosity that one can doubt was known even in the instrument's baroque prime. In an RCA release, sonatas for lute and harpsichord (LSC-3100, stereo), Bream joins his countryman George Malcolm in two sonatas for lute and continue by Vivaldi and in two of Bach's trio sonatas (s. 525 and s. 529). The Bach pieces, although usually listed as organ works, transcribe naturally for other combinations, for the trio sonata was in its day the least instrumentally sacred of musical forms, suited for one, two or more performers. The Vivaldi Sonata:?, similarly, call for a violin in addition to lute and continue, but since the violin doubles the lute most of the time, Bream's disk omits the violin without qualm, and without damage to the baroque spirit. In sonority — a matter to which the baroque musician evidently did not pay as much attention as we do — the lute and harpisichord can be overly similar, but in the Bream- Malcolm disk a good stereo separation helps keep the lines from mingling. Even more imporantly, the two musicins know and apply the secrets of accent and articulation to clarify the contrapuntal interweaving of the Bach pieces (in Vivaldi the horizontal aspect of the music is less well defined, and the performers do not solve the problems quite as satisfyingly). The collaboration of Malcolm and Bream is heard in another RCA album, cosily entitled "Julian Bream and His Friends" (LSC-3027, stereo), in which they come together with the Cremona String Quartet (Hugh Maguire and lona Brown, violins; Cecil Aronowitz, viola, and Terence Weil, cello). Here, in evidence of his continued double loyalty, Bream plays the guitar most sensitively in Haydn's Quartet in E (Op. 2., No. 2), for lute and strings. The disk also investigates Boccherini's Quintet in E (one of several the composer retooled for guitar from works originally written as paino quintets) and his introduction and Fandango (originally a quintet but heard here in a Bream transcription for guitar and harpsichord). Unassuming though all of this music is, the Bream coterie plays it with the deep empathy and the musicianship that keep it from sounding insig- nificant.
