Two exquisite moments framed Sergei Edelmann's recital at Ambassador Auditorium on Wednesday night. At the beginning of the evening, the young pianist from the Ukraine brought emotional serenity and pointed musicality to an all-but-unknown item by Franz Schubert, the "Klavierstueck" in E-flat. At the end, his first encore, Schumann's "Arabeske," showed again Edelmann's penchant for combining passion and lyricism.

The first superstars emerged in the 19th century with virtuosos such as violinist Niccolo Paganini and pianist Franz Liszt. Paganini was presumed to have sold his soul to the devil in exchange for uncanny virtuoso powers. Liszt was so popular, he reportedly kept a dog to shear in order to keep up with fans' demands for locks of his hair. What the dog thought of all that isn't recorded.

"White Christmas" is slightly out of season, but Rosemary Clooney has yet another perennial favorite on her hands--the now annual "Singers Salute the Songwriters" benefit. "What just kills me is when I get notes about the tapes (the "White Christmas" tapes she sends to friends every December) and they will write, 'I'll see you in April.'

The music of Chopin remains the pianist's touchstone, the measure by which we judge the totality of his or her accomplishment. Other composers may require more in terms of virtuosity and sheer power, or the vaguely defined quality we call intellect. None, however, demands a more complete mastery of the mechanics of the piano. And none demands more in terms of heart, soul or sensitivity--those qualities that we equate with artistry rather than mere skill.
