Regarding John Henken's "Musicians Union and L.A. Chamber Orchestra Out of Tune?" (Nov. 22), as a long-time member of American Federation of Musicians Local 47, and as a former member of the Board of Directors of the Union, I have observed numerous firings of musicians for reasons other than lack of ability. This reflects the lopsided supply and demand situation existing in the entertainment industry that makes the expression of one's views so treacherous. Paul Shure, Janet Lakatos and the union should be commended for taking a firm stand in suing the L.A. Chamber Orchestra.

An embarrassment of Quixotes is not necessarily a bad thing. Besides the balletic version of the Spanish classic, danced seven times (through Sunday afternoon) by ABT in Orange County, there was another local performance of Richard Strauss' orchestral tone-poem on the same subject--after the Los Angeles Philharmonic's, last week--by the Pasadena Symphony, Saturday night in Civic Auditorium.

Since its first public performance in 1976, David Keith's Los Angeles Mozart Orchestra seems to have gone through several incarnations. In its latest, the peripatetic ensemble opened a 1988-89 season in Wilshire Ebell Theatre Saturday night. Before a festive, sizable audience, Keith and his two-dozen-plus players offered promising performances of a program devoted to works by Gluck, Mozart and Haydn.

With heroic power and Olympian vision, pianist Dubravka Tomsic opened the Pasadena Symphony concert Saturday at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium with a majestic account of Brahms' D-minor Concerto. A student of Artur Rubinstein, who died in 1982 at 95, the Slovenian pianist was reintroduced to American audiences four years ago, after a nearly 30-year hiatus. Lucky for us. Like Rubinstein, Tomsic has utter command of the keyboard. She sees music in wholes, not parts. She is Apollo, not Dionysus.

Even the unrepentant Ebenezer Scrooge would have to smile and dance, given the high spirits, quick tempos and brilliant but mellow soloism offered in the annual, holiday-season package Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra makes of Bach's six "Brandenburg" Concertos. Especially in 1986, the year William McGlaughlin has come to town to perk up what may have been a sagging tradition.

"A pianist can have it all, but a flute needs other people," flutist Susan Greenberg says. Greenberg was explaining in a recent phone interview how the Greenberg Ensemble, which will perform at 3:30 p.m. Sunday at Sunny Hills High School in Fullerton, was born four years ago. "I was the one who got people together initially," Greenberg said. "It was very spontaneous and an excuse to play some chamber music. "But we don't always go by this name.

The standard orchestral repertory is a self-defining field of clearly understood--albeit unspecified--boundaries. A glance through the season's schedules for local and visiting orchestras, for example, reveals that we will have many opportunities to hear music by Beethoven, Brahms, Dvorak, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, Schumann, Richard Strauss and Tchaikovsky. No surprises there.

When Iona Brown, the British-born music director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, leads the ensemble tonight at Ambassador Auditorium and Friday at the Japan America Theatre, she will be doing so in her customary manner: seated as first violinist and using her bow, rather than standing front and center with a baton. That practice has attracted considerable attention locally, and Brown, who is also director of the London-based Academy of St.

Like Old King Cole, the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra this year is calling for its fiddlers three--three concertmasters, that is. The ensemble, which begins its 20th-anniversary season with concerts at the Wiltern Theatre tonight and Ambassador Auditorium on Saturday, recently announced the appointment of co-concertmasters Kathleen Lenski and Ralph Morrison. They will be in addition to Iona Brown, the orchestra's music director, who also serves as a concertmaster.
