You'd think people might remember you if you won a medal at the most renowned piano competition in the world. In the case of pianist Stephen Prutsman, however (who did just that at the 1990 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow), people's memories are often oblique. According to Prutsman, soloist at "Mozart in the Meadows" tonight, whatever celebrity he gained was "more for the documentary that was made about the event than for the event itself."

As the Pacific Symphony began Saturday night with a program entitled "Mozart-in-the-Meadows," it seemed intent on burying the composer there. Mozart's Symphony No. 34, in C, struggled under a mound of blandness, its martial brilliance dimmed by a rough-edged violin section, its sectional interplay obscured by skewed balance. By the end of the work, however, Music Director Carl St.Clair had pulled his band out of the quagmire with a playful Allegro vivace braced by crispness and muscularity.
