Philippe Entremont doesn't take himself too seriously, which allows him to give one of the more relaxing interviews in the classical (aka "serious") music business. Which is not to say that the French-born conductor and pianist, who brings his Vienna Chamber Orchestra to the Orange County Center for a Mozart program tonight, has little regard for his work.

True matinees, actual daytime performances that really take place in the morning, are like true love: They come along very seldom. Impresario MaryAnn Bonino, however, beginning another season of Chamber Music in Historic Sites--the peripatetic, ear-opening series sponsored by the Da Camera Society of Mount St. Mary's College--masterminded a genuine matinee at the wondrous, old, acoustically cherishable Orpheum Theatre, downtown.

I would like to add my own protest to the growing outcry against the injustice that has been done Keith Clark, founder and until recently conductor of the Pacific Symphony. I am a season subscriber to the concerts of both the L.A. Philharmonic and the Pacific Symphony, so I am in a position to make comparisons between the performances of both orchestras. I am appalled at some of the charges that have been leveled against Dr. Clark's musicianship in extenuation of the board's decision to terminate his contract.

The Orange County Philharmonic Society is lining up several concerts for 1991 to commemorate the 200th anniversary of Mozart's death, society executive director Erich A. Vollmer said Wednesday. Among them will be a March concert by the Mozarteum Orchestra of Salzburg, conducted by Hanz Graf. Other spring concerts on a Mozart Bicentennial series that is still being finalized will feature pianist-conductor Philippe Entremont and the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.

MOZART ARIAS. Excerpts from "Le Nozze di Figaro," "Cosi fan Tutte," "Don Giovanni," "La Clemenza di Tito"; concert arias K. 582, K. 578 and K. 505. Cecilia Bartoli, mezzo-soprano; Andras Schiff, piano; Vienna Kammerorchester, conducted by Gyorgy Fischer. London 430 513-2. If Bartoli sounds on the stage as she does on this record, she must be one of the most formidable stylists and one of the most virtuosic technicians of our time.

It was one of those culturally embarrassing moments for the City of the Angels when the musicians of the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra on stage appeared to outnumber the audience Saturday in the Luckman Theatre at Cal State Los Angles. Well, not quite. But surely the number of keys on the two Steinway grands utilized in Saint-Saens' listener-friendly "Carnival of the Animals" must have exceeded the seats filled in the 1,200-seat hall.

Neither the most accomplished nor the most scrappy band of instrumentalists to tour the United States in recent seasons, the Vienna Chamber Orchestra from Austria, this time under its French conductor, Philippe Entremont, returned to us after a 10-year absence Tuesday night in Stuart Marsee Auditorium at El Camino College. And pleased a kindly audience with just over an hour's worth of music neatly performed.

Seeking the increasingly elusive orchestra subscriber seems to be the toughest challenge of music administrators in the 1990s. For its 1990-91 season, the San Diego Symphony is offering no fewer than eight series to lure patrons to Symphony Hall on a regular basis. The Los Angeles Philharmonic announced last week that, after 69 years of playing a San Diego series, it is throwing in the towel, blaming scheduling difficulties at Civic Theatre and a serious downturn in subscribers.
