In some ways, Ruth Golden's recital Saturday evening in Ramo Auditorium at Caltech seemed like a USC reunion. The young soprano is a USC graduate, as are her capable accompanist Levering Rothfuss and guest cellist Michael Mathews, and there were USC alums throughout the audience. Golden also offered a new piece by Byron Adams, yet another former USC student.

Having appeared successfully with a number of regional and urban opera companies--like those in Washington, St. Louis, Arkansas, Kansas City and Long Beach--Ruth Golden would seem ready for her debut in July with New York City Opera.

The William Hall Chorale, augmented by a spiffy little orchestra, managed to meld Baroque sensibilities and the sheer volume of today's sonic allure in an exciting performance on Friday night of Handel's "Messiah." Performing in Pasadena Presbyterian Church, Hall had his 100-voice chorale scale down its massive output to manageable dynamic size, and the conductor's introduction of all manner of ornamentation was well executed by these forces.

Few people in this past century have done more for the collaborative art of recital accompaniment than did Gwendolyn Koldofsky, who died late last year at age 92. USC paid tribute Sunday afternoon to its longtime faculty member with a varied recital program in Bovard Auditorium, featuring former Koldofsky students, including revered diva Marilyn Horne.

It is impossible to determine precisely what an "authentic Baroque performance" (to use the printed program's wording) of Handel's "Messiah" would be, but Friday evening at Pasadena Presbyterian Church, the William Hall Chorale made a convincing case for Hall's vision of the work. Ornamentation, as Hall asserts, is an essential element of Baroque music, and Hall believes it should be executed not only by the soloists but by the orchestra and chorus as well.

Soprano Ruth Golden presented a recital of American song Thursday night in UCLA's Jan Popper Theater that left one thinking about the presentation, not the songs or the singing. For this survey ranging from Ives to Bolcom, Korngold to Jake Heggie (who also acted as crisp accompanist throughout the recital), Golden provided no printed texts.
