Mozart, the most merciless of composers in exposing the true abilities and musical depth of his interpreters, is not for the timid of heart. Courage and resource must equip every would-be Mozartean--but especially when this master's music is taken out of doors.
Tuesday nights at Hollywood Bowl tend to be high-energy affairs, the beginning of a new week usually infecting the Los Angeles Philharmonic and its loyal subscribers with optimism and good cheer. Not this week, when the final Tuesday concert of the 1993 summer season found both the resident orchestra and its apparently distracted audience (reportedly numbering 10,213) a little out of sorts.

WASHINGTON - President Obama is expected to nominate Chuck Hagel, a former Republican senator and Vietnam veteran, to be Defense secretary, officials said, setting up a confirmation battle with lawmakers and interest groups critical of Hagel's views on Israel and Iran. White House officials said Friday that the president hadn't formally offered the job to Hagel, but others familiar with the process said that the announcement could come as soon as Monday. Hagel, who was elected to the Senate from Nebraska in 1996 and retired in 2008, was awarded two Purple Hearts for wounds he received as a soldier in Vietnam.

Chuck Hagel's nomination as Defense secretary imminent, conservatives denounced his views on Israel and Iran as out of step with mainstream foreign policy, underscoring the difficulty he is likely to face winning Senate confirmation. An administration official said Sunday that Hagel - a decorated Vietnam veteran, a Republican and a former two-term senator from Nebraska - would be nominated Monday to succeed Leon E. Panetta. The official spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss internal White House planning.
