TNI DETROIT TIMiS
Nov. 1944 16-C Ovation For Krcisler Bt charle* gentry A STANDING ovation bv a complete rapacity audience, both before and after hi* performance ua* the Ihrilling welcome Detroit gave beloved Frit? Krcisler. the master violinist, when he ap peared as soloist with the Detroit Symphony last night in Masonic Auditorium. Seldom have we seen a demon* v? iat ion so spontaneous, and none more deserved. For krcisler, the leonine virtu oso. gave a performance of such compelling power of the greatest of all violin concertos, the Bee thoven D-major, that it overpow ered every listener. Few of the people in that packed auditorium last night had ever heard Krcisler plrv with an orchestra. Always he has ap peared here in recital, so that it was a particularly important oc casion. although we were not pre pared for quite such a magnifi cent one. FINE PERFORMANCE With such dignity and finished artistry did he plav the exalted measures of this great work that one could not help hut feel the nobility of its utterance. Krcisler has entirely overcomei any ill-effects he suffered from his accident and is in perfect com mand of his instrument. Those who came perhaps fear ful of failing powers had them; doubts dispelled with the opening passage for the violin in that won derful first movement; those who may have been timid about view ing the crumbling remains of once beautiful structure, found a per-' feet edifice of tone in that soaring soprano in thd second movement and those who might have won dered if the pace might have slowed down, could hanily keep up witji the facility and deftness; of the technical wonders of that ! last movement. MELODIC LINE Right in keeping with the broad melodic line and intellectual per- j formance of the concerto. tn ; which Karl Kreuger and the or chestra gave tremendous support.! was the orchestra's graceful and harmonious reading of Reetho- ‘ ven's "Pastoral,” which Krueger directed with great simplicity and. quipt strength. For such an evening of great: music, it would have seemed more fitting to choose an overture other than Rossini’s "La Cencrentola.” hut that’s what served as an I opener, although It sounded very much like hand organ music, com- j jvired to what followed. Detroiters to See Robots on Screen VI, THE new' British Ministry of Information short, was released in tl)e United States yesterday by the War Activities Committee. It Is the first photographic report on the robot bomb. un « om TONIGHT AT S .Ml BARGAIN MATINKEM TOMORROW * LIFE WITH 4 FATHER Hew York's Great**! I LAUGH HIT! i.m. *2. i.mv si T// Rst*. "4 *•».

"They really lake a great deal of research, no matter how simple they seem, but actually you have to work harder on the obvious, in many cases, than you do on the weird, or bizarre, numbers," Miss Dunham told us. "For example, the bungle and Jive numbers require more study and work than some of the unique Brazilian divertUe ments.
