Pianist Steven Lubin has made his reputation in concerts and recordings playing early instruments such as the 18th-Century fortepiano. But he's not one to insist that that's the only way to go. In fact, he thinks the period-performance movement has reached a turning point now that the newness of it all has worn off.

Displaying most of the virtues of her ensemble, Iona Brown, music director of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, returned to Ambassador Auditorium, and the group's subscription series, Saturday night. Her aggressive program reached a climax in a genuinely showy performance of Mozart's "Haffner" Symphony. Leading from the concertmaster's chair, Brown presided over a bright but handsomely contrasted and usually transparent reading of the Symphony No.

After a number of seasons, Chamber Music in Historic Sites cannot be expected to surprise with each outing. The Da Camera Society of Mount St. Mary's College, which sponsors the series, has presented the Mozartean Players several times, and it also has found previous use for the Petit Trianon. And yet Sunday afternoon the opening of the Sites season was an occasion that only this venturesome series can produce.

There are pitfalls in masterpieces as well as in lesser works. The opening Allegro of Mozart's "Jupiter" Symphony, for instance, can lure an unsuspecting--even a suspecting--conductor into a perfunctory or sterile performance. Its perfection lulls the unalert. Hans Graf, leading his Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg in its first performance at the Orange County Performing Arts Center, fell into this trap Monday night after intermission. Regularity spawned routine.

In a day and age when discussion of authenticity of performance centers around original instruments and size of ensemble, etc., the bottom line remains whether the spirit of the music is brought to life in a convincing manner. Thursday night at the Doheny Mansion, members of the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, under the auspices of the Da Camera Society, performed a Baroque program with consistently satisfying results.

A sizable tuned-in audience was regaled by the Mozartean Players, one of the best period-instrument chamber ensembles around, on Friday in Westwood United Methodist Church. The event was presented by the UCLA Center for the Performing Arts. It's a mark of the maturation of the antiquarian movement that one no longer has to make allowances for such a group as the Mozarteans: pianist Steven Lubin, violinist Stanley Ritchie and cellist Myron Lutzke.

Conductor Hans Graf and the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg may have every right to claim to know the definitive approach to the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. Established in Salzburg, Mozart's birthplace, in 1841, the orchestra has been associated with the city's conservatory since 1880 and serves as the principal resident orchestra at the summer Salzburg Festivals. But Graf, who will conduct two programs locally in the coming weeks, won't take such an extreme position.
