To the Editors of the CRIMSON:
Mr. Casler's review of Annette Colish's Sunday night violin recital at Adams House was of general interest throughout the University, not only to music lovers but also to fans of Noah Webster.
Casler's compact little bundle of emotion," "Inhibitions," and 'multicolored organism' are faintly, reminiscent of a Freudian biology text.
The "rich, livid tone" of Miss Colish's rendition of Debussay's Sonata No.3 leaves some doubt in the readers' minds as to Mr. Casler' s appraisal of her "musicianship.' Are ashy pale tones consistent with "professional" playing?
The critic's "livid" might have been a slip 'twixt the pen and the press; nevertheless, his little bundle of skillfully modulated sesquipedalian (or is it sesqui-pedantic?) phrases is a stodgy example of journalism uninhibited by idiomatic terminology. Sydney H. Sohanberg '55 Robert A. Spangler '55
