There are certain programming choices that make potential audience members understandably apprehensive. Tuba concertos and all-accordion orchestras readily come to mind as notable examples. Perhaps concertos for multiple harps should be added to that list. Friday night at Sherwood Auditorium, Zoltan Rozsnyai and his International Orchestra gave Jean Francaix's 1979 Concerto for Two Harps its American premiere, according to the program.

If they doled out Academy Awards to musical instruments, the contrabass would rarely be considered for anything but the "Best Supporting Instrument" category. An indispensable member of any jazz combo and the requisite underpinning of the orchestra's string section, the humble contrabass rarely rates top billing. UC San Diego's resident contrabass maestro, Bertram Turetzky, has devoted his career to bringing equal musical opportunity to his chosen instrument.

Turnabout may be fair play, but it's hardly a commendable programming device. In a season-opening concert Friday night, the International Orchestra used role reversal to questionable musical ends, although it packed Sherwood Auditorium. Pianist Gustavo Romero, no longer the native son prodigy but a musician of international stature, returned to perform Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27 in B-flat, a feat he accomplished with customary insight and authority.

For many young musicians bursting with talent, the overriding question is, "Is there life after competitions?" Frank Almond III, a competition veteran who was one of two American laureates at the 1986 Tchaikovsky International Competition, appears to be well on his way to establishing his performing career in spite of the typical post-contest doldrums.

Although Gabriel Faure's Requiem is a staple of church choirs, it is less frequently performed in the concert hall. With the combined resources of the San Diego Symphony and the La Jolla Civic-University Chorus at his disposal, music director Yoav Talmi did not make a convincing case for extracting the devotional work from its customary stained-glass surroundings. To be sure, there were some rewarding moments in Friday night's concert at Copley Symphony Hall.

On Sunday afternoon, while many San Diegans were watching the Super Bowl, Zoltan Rozsnyai led his International Orchestra in a concert of Johann Strauss waltzes in the Lyceum Theatre. This feat was either a sign of the city's expanding cosmopolitan pursuits or of an unusually benign sense of scheduling. With only a handful of people in the audience, the latter explanation is more likely. Fortunately, Rozsnyai's program was more than Viennese pastry.
