Yes. It is true. Once in a while, the son also rises. It happened Tuesday night at Hollywood Bowl. The son in this case is Paavo Jarvi. Remember the name. He was born 32 years ago in Talinn, Estonia. Since 1980, he has called America his home, completing his studies at Juilliard, Curtis and, briefly, the lamented L.A. Philharmonic Institute. He is very busy these days leading orchestras in Scandinavia, most notably the Malmo Symphony.

Father-son rivalry has a long history in classical music. The best known case is the elder Strauss trying his best to prevent his son from becoming the future Waltz King. But conductor Paavo Jarvi has received nothing but encouragement from his father, the eminent Estonian conductor Neeme Jarvi, in his decision to follow in his father's footsteps. "That question is always asked, possibly to get a juicy family drama," Paavo Jarvi said recently from his home in New York.

Carl Nielsen's Symphony No. 4, given a riveting performance by the Cincinnati Symphony on Friday night at Orange County's Renee and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, is titled "The Inextinguishable." Things weren't looking good for the Danish composer when he wrote this amazing score between 1914 and 1916. Europe had all but collapsed in its attempt to destroy itself with World War I. Nielsen's marriage was on the rocks.

Paavo Jarvi concluded his two-night visit to the Hollywood Bowl in this first week of the summer subscription season with another serious, faceted program, this one comprising a brief elegy by Arvo Part, the Violin Concerto of Beethoven and Sibelius' craggy but lovable Fifth Symphony. The Los Angeles Philharmonic, its sound unobtrusively delivered to the huge amphitheater by the resident aural engineers, was in good form and gave solid, if not always soaring, performances.

Pianist Andre Watts, who stepped in on short notice for an ailing Helene Grimaud, received a huge ovation after finishing Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto with the Los Angeles Philharmonic led by Paavo Jarvi on Thursday at Walt Disney Concert Hall. Los Angeles audiences give routine, if not obligatory, standing ovations, but this time the response was instantaneous, electrifying and accompanied by hoots, whistles and bravos that were anything but business as usual.

Paavo Jarvi made a generally good second impression at the Hollywood Bowl Thursday night, despite distractions caused by conflicting evidence from the odd-sounding amplification system. The Los Angeles Philharmonic's untroubled and well-spoken performance of Dvorak's "New World" Symphony, neatly but individually conducted by Jarvi, who had made his Bowl debut two nights before, offered pleasant if mixed rewards.

The Los Angeles Philharmonic continued to show off its bench strength Thursday night with the Hollywood Bowl debut of assistant conductor Kristjan Jarvi, 27, the bearer of a bona fide brand name familiar to compulsive collectors of classical recordings.
