There are times when the partnership between Jonathan Karoly and his 80-year-old companion is in perfect tune. Then there are the other times. Karoly, the newest and youngest member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, admits that living with a 1918 Italian Soffritti cello is not always easy--its purity of sound compromised by things like humidity and temperature. "It's like a marriage," Karoly frets--from his dark expression, seriously considering divorce.

Thursday evening the first International Laureates Chamber Music Festival, presented by the locally based Young Artists International, got underway with a motley but richly rewarding concert at the William Clark Memorial Library.

In the 100-plus orchestra, players span several generations and nationalities, having come from such places as Russia, China, Japan, Canada, Latvia and the United States.

A Bach cantata contemplating the joys of life beyond death seems an odd bedfellow for romantic music by Reinecke, Schumann and Schubert. And, in fact, it didn't quite fit stylistically or thematically in a chamber music program played by members of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and two guests Tuesday night at Walt Disney Concert Hall. But it provided an opportunity to appreciate at least one orchestra member who might otherwise not be showcased.

One day, mid-summer, I stopped by Benning Violins in Studio City for repairs on a friend's cello. German-born Hans Benning was at his work station, a violin on his bench and a wood plane in his strong, lean hand. To his left was his son, Eric. And next to Eric was Eric's son, Nathan. All three wore shop aprons and the fine dust of aged, hand-picked Bavarian and Bosnian spruce and maple. Nathan, 13, was busy. Head down, he was working on a project that filled his dad and grandfather with pride.

Every sound in Witold Lutoslawski's exquisitely made music seems there for a purpose, although what that purpose is can be hard to say. One thing in the Polish composer's scores generally leads to another, but why can be another conundrum. The music represents a world meant, for whatever reason, to be as it is. The Los Angeles Philharmonic New Music Group's glorious Green Umbrella concert Tuesday night in Walt Disney Concert Hall was Lutoslawski themed. The two Lutoslawski pieces played included the luminous late song cycle "Chantefleurs et Chantefables," which the L.A. Phil was first to record in 1994, the year the composer died and four years after it was written.

Starting a music festival can be arduous, intimidating business, but it can also be tinged with the excitement of a new beginning. Just ask Laura Schmieder, who, with her husband, Eduard, is launching the inaugural International Laureates Chamber Music Festival, with five concerts in different venues around Los Angeles starting this Thursday, and running through Aug. 6. As festival names go, this one may not be the most romantic, or the most informative.
