Symphony to piay popular musie
Leonard Slatkin
A contemporary program highlights the week-long
visit of the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra this fall when it
returns, to Lincoln for what is popularly becoming an
annual event. ,
Under guidance of Leonard Slatkin, new musical
director and principal conductor, the symphony will per
form concerts at Kimball Recital Hall at 8 pjn. on Oct. 31
and Nov. 1 and at 2:30 p jn. on Nov. 2.
"Each of the programs we have prepared contain some
contemporary music," Slatkin said, "But the final concert
on Sunday will be a special performance entirely composed
of contemporary works, something the St. Louis
Symphony has never done before. -
Slatkin said this concert was prepared especially for ,
Lincoln because of the extra time ailoted them during their I
stay. , . ." I
"In years past our schedule has been too hectic to
permit us the needed time for rehearsing such a program,"
he said. "This year we have the time, in fact we have
nearly a free day when we arrive.
A somewhat new format, also being introduced at the
Sunday performance, is similar to those Slatkin has arrang
ed in Minneapolis where he is frequently a guest conductor.
The new format includes an informal approach to the
music in that the orchestra plays sections of the pieces and
then discusses them with the audience before completing ,
the work. j
This is particularly important in understanding conternp- j
orarv music, Slatkin said. "My hope is that the concert will
be as educational as it is enjoyable.
Works scheduled for the Nov. 2 concert include
Stravinsky's Star Spangled Banner, Donald Erb's Seventh
Trumpet, a collection of pieces from the work of Charles
Ives, Sibelius's Symphony No. 2 and Slatkin's own work
Extensions I. .
"We also have prepared a special surprise encore for the
Sunday concert, Slatkin remarked, "something you will
have to hear to believe.
In describing his own piece, Extensions I, Slatkin ex
plained it as an improvisation work for Mallsf percussion
and keyboard.
"It is a very simple idea expanded," he said. "The whole
piece is based on one six-note chord and its variations. The
players listen to each other and move when it feels right."
Audience reaction, according to Slatkin, always has been
good for this relatively recent style of composition.
Previous Lincoln appearances of the St. Louis
Symphony have been astoundingly popular, with most
tickets sold out the day they went on sale.
" However, this year, according to Ron Bowlin, coordin
ator of Kimball Recital Hall programs, a limited number of
seats still are available by mail order.
The St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, America's second
oldest orchestra, performs more than 200 concerts
The Lincoln oerformances will mark the fourth time the '
Symphony has played in the capital city.
