1993 Year in Review : Music & Dance : The Beckmesser Awards

December 26, 1993|MARTIN BERNHEIMER | Martin Bernheimer is The Times ' music and dance critic.

Most worrisome changes of the guard: Lynn Harrell's departure from the local music scene (London's gain is L.A.'s loss); Tom Kendrick's departure from the Orange County Performing Arts Center; Erich Vollmer's departure from the Orange County Philharmonic Society; Deborah Rutter's departure from the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra; Orrin Howard's departure from the publications department at the L.A. Philharmonic.

Most promising changes of the guard: Kevin McKenzie's coming to the rescue of American Ballet Theatre (a dreadfully disappointing "Nutcracker" notwithstanding); Erich Vollmer's move to the L.A. Chamber Orchestra.

Happy-anniversary awards: To the Philharmonic at 75 (still young as American orchestras go); to the ever-crusty Ernest Fleischmann, who has now managed the Philharmonic for a third of its history; to the L.A. Chamber Orchestra, enjoying new artistic vitality at 25 under Christof Perick.
