Self-effacing directness goes a long way in Brahms' three Violin Sonatas. Unfortunately, it doesn't carry them very far in as cavernous an environment as the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. That at least was the impression Tuesday evening, when violinist Shlomo Mintz and pianist Yefim Bronfman essayed the triumvirate for the Los Angeles Philharmonic's Celebrity Series.

When the Los Angeles Philharmonic's 1986 season at Hollywood Bowl officially begins July 8, music director Andre Previn will be represented as composer rather than conductor. The orchestra's 65th summer in Cahuenga Pass will open with Previn's "Principals," conducted by Lawrence Foster. Jean-Pierre Rampal will be soloist in three works for flute and orchestra. During the 50-event season, Previn will preside at concerts only during the week of Aug. 12-16.

The music of Anton Bruckner rarely turns up at Hollywood Bowl--for numerous and varied reasons. Previous to the Symphony No. 8 played on Thursday, Bruckner's name had appeared on Bowl programs only once before, on Aug. 22, 1974. The symphony was the same on that occasion, as was the conductor, Zubin Mehta. The orchestra then was the Los Angeles Philharmonic; this time it was the Israel Philharmonic, concluding its stint of three concerts at the Bowl.

The way it looked on paper, it was going to be the Shlomo Mintz Show, with a little band called the Israel Chamber Orchestra serving his every need. The veteran violinist Mintz would appear in triple glory as violin soloist, viola soloist and conductor. We had no need to worry. While the concert at Ambassador Auditorium on Wednesday did prove a display for his talents, this was only a byproduct of his keen attention to the music itself and the splendid playing of the orchestra.

His name is Daniele Gatti. You will hear it again. The little-heralded maestro from Milan, who made his debut with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion on Thursday, looks like the figment of some casting director's delirium. Gatti is intense and lithe, dark and handsome. He broods elegantly. He exudes authority on the podium, even when he fails to coax maximum precision from an unfamiliar orchestra.

When violinist Shlomo Mintz returns to Hollywood Bowl this week, he will renew a relationship with the Israel Philharmonic that began in 1968, when he was 11. "There's a lot of sentiment in our relationship," Mintz said in a telephone interview from his home in Stresa, Italy. Mintz, who will turn 29 in November, continues to travel steadily as a soloist and recitalist.
