Chamber music concert superb
Essential to the enjoyment of any
concert or recital is the feeling that the
performers are deriving satisfaction
from what they are doing. When this
feeling is absent, even the most
professional performances may sound a
bit jaded, and as a result, lose their
grasp on the audience.
Perhaps nowhere is this as evident as
ft is in chamber music, where the
audience and the performers are,
hopefully, in close juxtaposition to one
another. In this most demanding genre,
a bored or even a complacent musician
is as noticeable as a bleeding thumb on
a minister.

This lack of complacency was in
evidence in the Tuesday evening recital
provided by the Lincoln String Quartet.
Performing a traditional piece by Franz
Schubert, as well as more modern,
dissonant pieces by William Brezina and
Bela Bartok, the quartet proved them
selves competent musicians capable of
tackling a wide range of forms of
musical expression, with a fine degree,
of proficiency."
The first piece to be performed was
Schubert's Quartet No. 1 in B flat, The
quartet handled the work smoothly,
although the first violinist experienced
an intonation problem, consistently
playing a trifle sharp, as well as
experiencing a faintly nervous vibrato in
the second movement.
Brezina's First Quartet in D (Lisa)
was an energetic, jumpy work that
conveyed a sparkling vivacity mirroring
the joy of the father on the birth of his
daughter. Brezina's work is a confusing
piece (at least to untrained ears), but its
vital "sense of life" marks it as a
composition of merit, and one to
remember. The quartet handled it
cleanly, with a verve born of good
musicianship, making the performance
a tasty one, worthy of special praise.
Only on the third piece, Bartok's
Quarter No. 1, Opus 7, did the quartet
run into major difficulties. An atonal
composition blessed with an almost
interminable third movement, Bartok's
piece seems to meander along, lacking
any sense of purpose or direction. The
musicians soldiered along dutifully, but
the music seemed to stretch on and on,
quite burying the merits of the players.
However one feels about the choice of
material, though, one must praise the
Lincoln String Quartet for having
provided an evening of music that in the
main was a decidedly uplifting ex
perience.
