If Oregon--"right on the edge of the backwoods"--could host a music festival, why couldn't Seal Beach, Calif.? That's what cellist Alan Parker asked himself 16 years ago, free-lancing in the Peter Britt Festival concerts in Jacksonville, Ore., and toying with the idea of starting his own festival in the Southland. "I was quite impressed with what (the Peter Britt people) were able to do with rather simple facilities and a low budget," Parker recalls.

When it comes to money, the Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival follows a simple principle: If you don't have it, don't spend it. "That's why we've survived 18 years and a number of other endeavors have crashed and burned," founding music director Alan Parker says. "It's typical in the arts community to think what you're doing is great, that someone is going to see how wonderful it is and come and make up a deficit. That doesn't work. "We've never had a deficit," he said.

For 16 summers, cellist Alan Parker offered free chamber music festivals in Seal Beach. But then, toward the end of last year's festival, he fell sick. The final concert, which he was to have conducted, had to be canceled, and because the festival essentially had been a one-man operation, it all ground to a halt.

Their name means, roughly, "the extravagance" or "oddity," but there wasn't anything particularly extravagant or odd in the way the three members of La Stravaganza performed Thursday at the McGaugh School in Seal Beach. Their program stands out, however, in the flyer describing the nine-concert (this being number five) Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival: It is the only program of Baroque music.

Members of the Southwest Chamber Music Society--pianist Albert Dominguez, violinist Peter Marsh and hornist Jeff von der Schmidt--opened the 16th annual Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival with a program of Beethoven and Brahms at McGaugh School Auditorium. This performance was as uneven as it was conservative. Tight ensemble work in Beethoven's Sonata in C minor for violin and piano created its pinnacle.

By some quirk of the human spirit, a young artist sometimes finds immediate sympathy with the late reflections of an older composer. So it was when 18-year-old Max Levinson played Brahms' last pieces for solo piano--"Vier Klavierstucke," Opus 119--Thursday in his recital as part of the 16th annual Seal Beach Chamber Music Festival.
