Five violinists--five of the most brilliant and musical fiddlers performing internationally--and two cellists, with a small, 17-member orchestra, earned the cheering that went on, almost from the beginning, at the final concert of SummerFest La Jolla 2001.

SummerFest '88, the La Jolla Chamber Music Society's conspicuously well-attended 11-day festival, took its final curtain calls Tuesday night at Sherwood Auditorium. Festival artistic director Heiichiro Ohyama took the podium and led the San Diego Chamber Orchestra in a pleasant potpourri of Mozart, J. S. Bach and Ernest Bloch. With only a tangential relationship to the chamber music festival, the program seemed like a postscript rather than a grand finale.

Heiichiro Ohyama, artistic director of the La Jolla SummerFest, gets by with a little help from his friends. Fortunately for the La Jolla Chamber Music Society, sponsor of the annual chamber music festival that opened Friday and runs through Aug. 30 at Sherwood Auditorium, Ohyama's circle of friends includes Andre Previn, clarinetist David Shifrin, pianist Yefim Bronfman, and cellist Gary Hoffman, to name but a few.

SummerFest Artistic Director Heiichiro Ohyama proved again Sunday that inspired cronyism produces the strongest chamber music performances. At the second public concert in SummerFest '90 in Sherwood Auditorium at the San Diego Museum of Contemporary Art here, Ohyama, again surrounded by a distinguished group of gifted, high-achieving and musically affectionate cronies, put together a sensible--if hardly provocative--program consisting of Mozart's Piano Trio in G, K.
