Student Interest Draws Praise
Of Mme. Ehlers, Harpsichordist
Praise of student enthusiasm for
“unusual concerts — just to hear
and learn something new” was
given by Mme. Alice Ehlers at a
reception following her harpsi
chord concert Wednesday night.
She performed works by Bach,
Handel, Rameau, Scarlatti, and
Johann Pachelbel in the first of
three concerts sponsored by the
Chamber Concert Series of the
School of Music.
Mme. Ehlers considers the harp
sichord the best medium for play
ing Eighteenth Century Baroque
music, since it was originally writ
ten for that instrument.
Her concert was marked by the
sincerity of her interpretations,
subtleties of phrasing, and her
command of the instrument, ac
cording to several members of the
music school faculty.
“Her tremendous digital dexteri
ty was displayed to especial ad
vantage in such compositions as
Bach’s Chromatic Fantasy and
Fugue, and the Scarlatti sonatas,”
they added.
Mme. Ehlers also explained the
mechanics of the harpsichord to
her audience.
The Viennese harpsichordist is a
member of the Artist Faculty at
the University of Southern Cali
fornia. She has contracted to play
in Strasbourg for a Bach festival
in 1950.
She will receive an honorary
Doctor of Arts degree at Lewis
and Clark College on Nov. 22. That
occasion made possible her ap
pearance in Eugene.
