Despite heavy odds in his youth
which were not favorable to his
becoming a musician, Dimitri Mi
tropoulos is today one of the out
standing conductors in the world.
Webfoots and members of the Eu
■ gene Civic Music association will
have a chance to see the famed
conductor in person Tuesday at
8 15 p. m. when he appears with
the Minneapolis symphony or
chestra in McArthur court.
Mitropoulos was 7 years old
when things came to the point
where arbitration would no longer
work—his parents could no long
er find other entertainment to
take the place of the piano. He
had had difficulty convincing his
parents, devout members of the
Greek Orthodox church, that he
should be permitted to study, for
instrumental music had no place
in the rites of their church.
The fact that his grandfather
was a priest, his grand-uncle an
archbishop and that two uncles
were monks made his task no
Mitropoulos’ persistency won
over family disapproval in the end.
Today he is one of the most
talked-of figures in the inter
national field of music.
Talks with Mirtopoulos reveal
that his music is a hard—but lov
abie—master and takes up the ma
jority of his time. It forces him to
live a life of austerity and depri
vation. He doesn’t have time for
social activities or travel.
His relaxation therefore comes
when he goes to the movies. He
places himself in the role of the
hero, detective, or socialite of a
fast moving picture—and enjoys
The Greek conductor has a word
of caution for any young com
posers to acquire depth, get the
habit of going to the heart of
things and not to hurry!
Daily newspapers, including the
Emerald, may be found at the Co-op
every morning at nine.
